The Centre for Gender Research invites you to book launch seminar connected to Rebecca W. B. Lund and Ann Christin E. Nilsen's most recent book publication Institutional Ethnography in the Nordic Region.
This years international women's day seminar, organised by the Centre for Gender Research, explores the complex interdependence between men's movements and antifeminism, between right-wing populism, ethnonationalism and the ultra-conservative anti-gender movements. Invited speakers from civil society, gender studies, social sciences and humanities will shed new light on the attraction of extremist movements, conflicting gender images, as well as potential forms of feminist resistance.
This seminar includes a public lecture, titled Food-getting, Water-carrying, Waste-picking: Women’s Work and Ecology in World Literature, by Sharae Deckard (University College Dublin). The lecture is followed by a structured roundtable with Treasa De Loughry (University of Exeter), Amy Rushton (Nottingham Trent University), Kate Houlden (Anglia Ruskin University) and Libe García Zarranz (NTNU), and chaired by Sorcha Gunne (STK).
