Gender, sexuality, queer, trans

We have a vivid research environment focusing on gender and sexuality. Anchored in a feminist, queer, transfeminist and/or crip-theoretical genealogy, the research environment has over the years grown into a strong research profile in the Department. Drawing on the expertise of internationally recognized scholars in the Department, the research environment has developed strong national, Nordic and international partnerships and collaborations. 

Successfully supported by external funding from public and private funding agencies, several researchers and doctoral students problematize binary categories and classification systems based on gender and sexuality in ongoing research projects which continue to expand and deepen the field of gender studies. 

With close connections to grassroot networks, civil society organizations, municipalities and state agencies, the contributions of researchers working in this research field contribute to shape policy recommendations and to enrich societal debate. 

Crip- and Queer seminar series

The research environment hosts the Crip- and Queer seminar series in the Department, offering critical discussions on cutting-edge questions in the area through public research seminars with invited guests.
