Associate Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies
The research project Spaces of resistance. A study of gender and sexualities in times of transformation started 2016 with support from Knut and Alice Wallenberg’s Foundation. The project explores the transnational struggle for women’s and LGBT-people’s rights in contemporary Scandinavia, Russia and Turkey. Bringing together multi-sited ethnography, netnography, discourse analysis and comparative analysis, this project aims to expand our knowledge about how collaborations between transnational organizations and local women’s and LGBT-movements enable new collective identities and more complex understandings of gender and sexualities.
- Subject area : Gender Studies
- Specific subject description : The Department of Cultural Sciences gathers several subject areas engaged in studying a variety of aesthetic and cultural forms of expression in a contemporary as well as historical perspective.

In Gender Studies at the Department, feminist scholars from diverse academic traditions meet across disciplinary borders to develop critical analyses of gender, power and resistance, situated in traditions of rich feminist scholarship such as feminist science and technology studies, feminist post-/decolonialism, feminist poststructuralism and (new) feminist materialism. Research on transnational and feminist social movements constitutes a vibrant space at the Department for scholars interested in developing knowledge about the shifts and complexities of gender and power in a globalized world.
