Mobilizing Gender Research Challenges and Strategies
2013 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
In this newest volume in the FGV's series of working papers, we present our current research strategy 2013-2015 together with a broad range of examples from the research being carried out within the different research area that the strategy is defining. The research environment at the FGV is characterized by intellectual curiosity both in terms of our own research as well that of others. Our approach is constructively critical, always applied in an open, welcoming, and inclusive spirit, since it is our firm belief that creative research environments require room for diversity. The multidisciplinary research at the FGV currently falls into three major research areas: Gender and normalization in neo-liberal times; A lifetime of gendered cultures; and Gender and working conditions. One joint interest for all three areas is to explore gendered institutional practices and discourses, and new types of techniques of governing during the restructuring of the Swedish welfare state in an advanced liberal context. Since FGV:s mission is to mobilize and promote gender studies in all the diverse forms that it is practiced at Mid Sweden University the proposition and the contributions to this publication are by necessity varied. We have contributions from fields such as gender studies, literary studies, sociology, geography, ethnography, and public health.
