Race, migration, nationalism

The Department is the locus for an internationally renowned, excellent and expansive research environment exploring questions of race, migration and nationalism. Carrying further a long tradition of developing post- and decolonial knowledges, the research environment has over the years become the leading hub for deepening our insights into these critical schools of thought in a Swedish and Nordic region as well as internationally. With the courage and intellectual brilliance of researchers in the department, the research environment is part of long-standing national, Nordic and international networks, partnerships and collaborations. 

Having successfully attracted high amounts of research funding from private and public funding agencies, the research environment is an expansive site for emerging researchers and more experienced colleagues, including a high interest from visiting researchers and guest professors to be part of the environment for shorter or longer periods of stay. 

Building further on strong research traditions in the field, contributions from researchers in the research environment has been part of renewing gender studies in Sweden and the Nordic region, and continues to further develop the subject field, through critical approaches methodologically and theoretically. 

 Global Gender Matters Seminar Series
