Research in/on a Globalized World

The Department is not only interdisciplinary in scope but also global. In a postcolonial and increasingly global world, the local is shaped on a backdrop of transnational policies and economies. A global perspective on gender provides a key to understand conflicts, wars and their aftermath, risk, migration, sexualities (LGBTIQ), masculinities, femininities, identities, employment, exploitation, development, education, health, representation, media, and history.

The Department engages with scholars from well-known universities across the globe. In providing a platform for exchange of intellectual views, analyses, methods, and pedagogies, the Department is committed to co-construct knowledge with colleagues across the globe (e.g. through the Linnaeus-Palme Program). In collaboration with scholars from the Global North and the Global South, the Department studies how flows in goods, money, knowledge, and people constitute power relations, hierarchies, violences, insecurities, vulnerabilities, and visions for change in particular locations.
