NEW QUESTIONS FOR SCANDINAVIAN GENDER STUDIES: MIGRATION, RACE, AND AFFECT
Why are questions of migration, race, and affect important to gender studies and feminist knowledge production at this moment of time? What type of gender study scholarship emerges from these questions? And how are the boundaries and potentialities of gender studies redefined in this process? The seminar explores how questions of migration, race, and affect are analyzed within the field(s) of contemporary Scandinavian gender studies.
November 15th at Elise Ottesen Jensens hus 376.
