New publications

Queer cultural products in Romania
Ramona Dima´s book, Queer culture in Romania: Fragments of representations of queer identities in the Romanian space (1920-2018) has been published in Bucharest by Hecate Publishing House. This book offers a much needed overview of the queer cultural history of Romania by analysing materials ranging from literature, performance art, movies and contemporary art available in the public space since the 1920s. An English translation is under preparation. 

Naturliggør forandring
Mati Klitgård has published an essay in the latest issue of Tidsskrift for Kjønnsforskning. The essay argues that in the current context of climate catastrophe it is a queer feminist project to increase our sensitivity to nature, its socio-sexual systems, and its conditioning of human life forms. It can be read open access here
Sexualities and Critiques of Capital
The latest issue of Kvinder, Køn & Forskning (1, 2022) is now available. The issue is edited by Mati Klitgård together with Liu Xin (Karlstad University) and Laura Horn (Roskilde University). The special issue aims to provide insight into sexual politics as fundamental technologies of power within capitalism, and how sexual oppression under capitalism foments critiques of domination and communities of resistance. It includes 3 research articles, a forum, 2 commentaries, 4 essays, a review essay and a book review. Everything is open access and can be found here.

Tidsskrift for kjønnsforskning
A special issue of Tidsskrift for kjønnsforskning (2, 2022) has been published. A poem, four articles, and an essay address the theme of nature. The issue is edited by Ingvil Hellstrand and Lene Myong and can be read here (open access).
The Centre welcomes new students to three courses this fall. We are excited to offer in-person teaching again this fall, with one new course added to the portfolio:

GEN330/GEN530 - Transnational Perspectives on Nordic Gender Equality and Welfare is taught by Professor Lene Myong

GEN360/GEN560 Intersectionality: Critical Perspectives on Power and Inequality  

The new course, GEN370/570 - Global Sexualities: Theories, Methods, Practices, is taught by Professor Elisabeth Lund Engebretsen
Network for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies

Populism and Science in Europe (2022), an edited book by Hande Eslen-Ziya and Alberta Giorgi, is recently published at Palgrave MacMillan. The book provides the first systematic and comparative analysis of the intersections of populism and science in Europe, from the perspective of political sociology. The theoretical perspectives show populism as a thin-ideology, as discourse and performance, and as a political logic, consider both right-wing and left-wing populism, and focus on leaders as well as citizens. The book also offers an overview of controversies within different fields of «science», including case studies on food science, climate change, vaccination, gender theory, COVID-19, and environmental issues. Hande Eslen-Ziya, Liv Sunnercrantz, Tevfik Murat Yildirim, and Elisabeth Lund Engebretsen, all members of Network for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies, have contributions in the book.
