In June, we celebrate queer love and diversity. In honour of Pride, STK has collected texts written by researchers at the University of Oslo, as well as other affiliated partners. Here, you can gain insight into themes including queer history, the ongoing struggle for LGBTQI+ rights, both in Norway and internationally, as well as how queer perspectives can help us understand culture, sexuality, and identity in new ways.
In the autumn of 2021, STK will offer a new MA course, KFL4055 Gender and Society, which will examine how gendered inequalities, practices, and subjectivities are reproduced, both in the individual and in society as a whole.
How does gender shape armed conflict, political violence and peacebuilding, and how do peace and conflict shape our notions of gender? In the autumn of 2021, STK will offer a new MA course that aims to explore these questions.
