A central ambition for the Group is to promote increased understandings of and dialogues between Norwegian, Nordic and international research, and political mobilizations in this field. 

About the Queer Research Group

The Group provides an arena for inspiration, provocation, collaboration and support for researchers and students who work in queer theory, methodology, pedagogy, and academic praxis more broadly.

The Queer Research Group was established fall 2020. It provides a forum for academic discussions of theoretical, methodological, and ethical topics in the interdisciplinary field of queer and LGBTQ+ studies and queer theory, hosts presentations and collaborations to do with publishing, funding, and work applications, and shares relevant literature and references.

The Group has members from postgraduate to professorial level, and from a wide range of disciplinary and institutional affiliations. A principal ambition is for the Group to offer a platform for queer research and researchers based at Norwegian universities and colleges, to promote queer scholarship nationally.

Considering the current geopolitical climate as regards anti-gender politics and attacks on democratic principles and rights, another central ambition for the Group is to encourage increased collaboration and dialogue between Norwegian, Nordic, and international researchers, and political mobilizations in this field.
