2010 (English)In: Norm-Struggles: Sexualities in Contentions / [ed] Martinsson, Lena; Reimers, Eva, Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing , 2010, 1-12 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

'Norm Struggles' explores and challenges normativity in general and heteronormativity in particular. A common trait in all chapters is the focus on contradictions, changes, disruptions and uncertainties that follow with different norms and structuring forces. The authors discuss and explore how norms are produced, and reproduced but also disrupted, subverted and changed. The chapters are based on observations from different settings such as preschools, schools, universities, factories, social welfare, popular culture, passenger ships, and the fire service. They are also based on observations from different countries - Lithuania, Canada, USA, Sweden, Finland, and Great Britain. The book presents studies of media, policies, machines, organisations, academic sexual theory, and the ongoing constructions of nations and nationalities.
