Contemporary debates about the gendered diagnosis Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)/ Myalgische encephalomyelitis (ME) are characterized by disputes about whether it is a psychological and/or a somatic condition, as well as whether it is an illness to begin with. In this project, I investigate how CFS/ME is constructed as a (non-)illness in Dutch policy documents, news papers, and on online fora. Herein, I focus on conceptual developments of CFS/ME in the last decade, and specifically surrounding the most recent Gezondheidsraad [Dutch Health Council] advice about CFS/ME.
