Mathias Ericson: Everyone knows what gender is, right?
Gender is a focal point of political struggles across the globe. As researchers in gender studies we acknowledge such struggles, and yet also challenge simplistic notions of what gender is. Mathias Ericson, researcher in gender studies, explains why it is urgent to engage with the concept of gender and challenge the consensus on what gender is. How can we approach gender from an inclusive perspective? In the context of controversies around gender studies and anti-gender mobilizations in Sweden and beyond, how can we address issues around normativity, binarity, feminist and LGBTQI+ movements, visual cultures and digital technologies? Featuring researchers from the Gender Studies Unit at the University of Gothenburg, this clip series looks at different aspects of gender studies, research, and education. Production of the clip series was funded by Stiftelsen Gustaf Adolf Bratts föreläsningsfond and coordinated by Selin Çağatay, Ph.D. For more information, please visit the Gender studies unit page at https://www.gu.se/en/cultural-science... and our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/GenderStudie...
