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 and comparative analysis, this project examines the ways in which the transnational struggles for women’s and sexual rights enable new collective identities and more complex understandings of gender and sexualities, beyond national and regional borders. The project is situated in feminist post-/decolonial and postsocialist theory. The research project is now inviting applications for a position as Postdoctor, appointed to conduct research within the project, individually as well as in collaboration with other members in the research team.
