Abstract [en]

Celebrating more than two decades of feminist theory and gender research, this book provides an essential overview of current theoretical positions, hot topics and state-of-the-art perspectives in the field of Nordic Gender Studies: an area currently facing the challenges of internationalization and destabilized well fare states, intersectionality, materiality, and academic transformation.

Forming an overview, the introductory texts collected here are intended for Nordic and international students and teachers specializing in gender studies or related areas of interdisciplinary humanities and social sciences. With vibrant contributions from Nordic and international key scholars, think pieces and position papers culled from NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, are in fact essential reading for anyone in need of accessible yet condensed guidance on key discussion points, such as post-constructionism and new materialism, neo-liberal academia and interdisciplinarity, and the role of critical gender theory and posthumanism. The volume also looks at the differences within Nordic Gender Studies of today.

This book is made up of material that was previously published in various issues of NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research.
