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.
The project is situated in feminist post-/decolonial and postsocialist theory. The research project is now inviting applications for a tenure track position as Associate Senior Lecturer, appointed to conduct research within the project, individually as well as in collaboration with other members in the research team.
