Abstract [en]

The chapter introduces central themes in current feminist theory, as well as an intertwinement of cultural critique and an affirmative search for alternatives.  The  key theoretical themes, focused in the chapter, are the following: 1) intersectionality and disidentification, 2) postconstructionism and new feminist materialism, and 3) queer- and transtheory as well as sex-positive feminism.

2018 (English)In: Scientometrics, ISSN 0138-9130, E-ISSN 1588-2861, Vol. 117, no 1, p. 655-666Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article is an invited comment on Guy Madison and Therese Söderlund (M&S): Comparisons of content and scientific quality indicators across peer-reviewed journal articles with more or less gender perspective: Gender studies can do better. Scientometrics 115(3):1161–1183. The article pinpoints a series of serious problems in M&S’s quantitative quality assessment and analysis of the field of gender studies, pertaining to their overall conceptual framework, their general approach and their specific analysis. It is argued that the over-arching problem in M&S’s study is their lack of expert knowledge of the field of gender studies, their lack of respect for differences between qualitative and quantitative research, and their research design, which is biased towards quantitative social and natural science research. Firstly, it is demonstrated that a key concept, ‘gender perspective’, is used in an incoherent and confusing way in M&S’s analysis. Secondly, it is argued that the confusion is not an isolated definitional problem, but related to a series of slippages between M&S’s source of inspiration (Ganetz in Genusvetenskapliga projektansökningar inom humaniora-samhällsvetenskap – en uppföljning av Vetenskapsrådets beredning och utfall år 2004. Vetenskapsrådets rapportserie, Stockholm 15/2005, 2005) and their own adoption of the category. Thirdly, differences between qualitative and quantitative research, and between hermeneutic and explanatory knowledge production, are discussed more broadly to sustain the argument that the mentioned slippages occur, because M&S transfer analytical tools from Ganetz’ qualitative study, based on a peer review methodology, to a quantitative quality assessment, carried out without field specific expert knowledge. It is argued that, to be adequate and relevant, a quality assessment would need to respect these differences, and develop tools and research designs accordingly. Fourthly, the validity of M&S’s content analysis—the core of their study—is questioned in detail because of its use of inadequate analytical categories, and because of its exclusion of central elements from the analysis. Finally, it is argued that the bias in M&S’s research design is reproduced in their results.

Abstract [en]

In this interview, Nina Lykke reflects on her experiences with the gradual institutionalization of interdisciplinarity. Using examples from her career, she discusses the changing political and economic dynamics within universities over the last 25 years, and what they mean for researchers in mainstream and marginal fields. In particular, she focuses on method as an often underestimated, but vital component of making interdisciplinarity work.

Abstract [en]

This companion is a cutting-edge primer to critical forms of the posthumanities and the feminist posthumanities, aimed at students and researchers who want to catch up with the recent theoretical developments in various fields in the humanities, such as new media studies, gender studies, cultural studies, science and technology studies, human animal studies, postcolonial critique, philosophy and environmental humanities. It contains a collection of nineteen new and original short chapters introducing influential concepts, ideas and approaches that have shaped and developed new materialism, inhuman theory, critical posthumanism, feminist materialism, and posthuman philosophy. A resource for students and teachers, this comprehensive volume brings together established international scholars and emerging theorists, for timely and astute definitions of a moving target – posthuman humanities and feminist posthumanities.

Abstract [en]

Assisted Reproduction Across Borders  reflects on the state of the art of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs). From feminist perspectives, contributors explore how, today, ARTs have reached a ‘mature’ stage impying that some practices, eg, in vitro fertilization (IVF), have become standard worldwide. In focus are contemporary political debates triggered by ARTs, and the varying ways in which societies deal with ARTs, worldwide, depending on religious, moral and political approaches.  Such  differences are analysed, based on original research contributions from a variety of countries in Europe and beyond. The volume demonstrates how differently ARTs are interpreted and practised in different contexts, for example, confronting discussions of surrogacy practices from the perspective of the global South and the global North. Early feminist struggles framed ARTs  in terms of technoscience gaining  control over women’s bodies, but also as  providing possibilities for freeing women from childbirth as a way to gender equality. More recently, however, ARTs have been celebrated as a facilitator of queer family-building, while surrogacy, egg and embryo donation has been criticized as exploitation of women’s reproductive labour. Contributors pinpoint that central contemporary concerns  are in/equalities in terms of access to ARTs and  the transnational biocapitalist traffic in gametes and gestational labour.

Abstract [en]

The introduction presents the rationale and main aims of the co-edited volume. It explains the starting points that assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) in the 21st century are no longer ‘new technology’ or cutting-edge science but are rather regarded as mundane practice, and that the reproductive possibilities opened by ARTs from commercialized transnational traffic in eggs, sperm, embryos and gestational labour to new queer family buildings continue to make legislators perplex and create moral dilemmas leading to all kinds of restrictions and exclusionary practices.  Against this background, the main purpose is defined  as taking stock of this complex situation, and look at the contradictions, disruptions and renegotiations which it generates – a purpose which gives rise to the framing of two more specific aims: 1) to study the social and cultural aspects of ARTs as something that is integrated into both public health services and people’s understanding of common ways to achieve pregnancy, 2) and to do so against the background of data gathered from a wide array of social, cultural and geopolitical contexts, combining a European focus with a strong global outlook, which opens possibilities  to reflect on the workings of different local constraints and enablings. The chapter also provides a detailed reflection on the complementary perspectives of the differently located contributions and the ways they each address one of five overall themes: transnational reproflows, national constraints and conditions, religious and other kinds of fundamentalism, demographic agendas and biopolitics, and ‘new normals’ and their discontents, considered important for a general understanding of  policies, discourses and practices of ARTs in the contemporary world.

Abstract [en]

With a point of departure in an analysis of three different parts of a necklace which I had made after the cancerdeath of my life partner, and a poem which I wrote about the key components of the necklace, I shall explore and pose questions regarding what   material remains of  human bodies  can do.  My inspiration is Spinoza and Deleuze asking the question: what bodies can do rather than asking what they are. I will push the question into the framework of queer death studies, asking what dead bodies, in casu, human dead bodies and material remains from them, can do?  I will explore three modes of doing: material remains of human dead bodies acting  1) as palpable symbol of the past, 2) as material  embodiment of the present,   and 3) as  embodied sign which may or may not be working across  imaginary  boundaries and temporalities.   This explorative work-in-progress paper is part of my project on a feminist materialist reontologizing of death, andgrounded in its  beliefs and assumptions that poetic and theoretical/philosophical  explorations which do not prioritize one over the other, are very important in terms of making new modes of relating to death unfold.
