The Nobel Prize, Swedish Academia and Feminist Challenges to Institutionalization


Why, how, and when should feminist projects get involved in institutions? Is there a difference between different institutions in this regard? Is there a limit for what we can expect from the institution?
Participants are invited to share their reflections on these and other questions, based in their experiences and visions of academic feminism. We will focus on structural factors with the aim to develop our understanding of collective resistances and solidarities.
Introduction: Mia Liinason, Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies.

In this text, Ahmed reflects on the dangers of institutional polishing, of a plain defence of the institution, and when work inside of the institution becomes a restoration project. It offers a useful starting point for a discussion about the role and function of academic feminism in the complexities of today¿s academic life, among other things characterised by the threat of extinction from the far right and the threat of assimilation from the neoliberal academy, in addition to the continued existence of institutional racism and sexism and a westernized and colonial canon.
