Critical Perspectives on Nordic Gender Equalities

  • Number of credits 15 Credits
  • Level Master’s level
  • Starting Spring Term 2020

About the course

This course deals with gender equality as political ideal and practice in the Nordic region. Taking a historical departure the course will address questions such as: How and when was the issue of gender equality put on the political agenda in the Nordic countries? How is gender equality understood and practiced today? Are Nordic countries still to be conceived as egalitarian? Drawing on various research fields such as poststructuralist feminist theory, postcolonial theory, as well as critical perspectives on class and sexuality, the course will explore the ideal of gender equality from different perspectives. Special emphasis is put on examining the ways in which present day Nordic societies in general and gender equality in particular are marked by processes of eurocentrism, heteronormativity and neoliberalism.
