Transnational Activism: Gender and Sexuality

The research group studies activism, feminism, queer and trans movements in both local and transnational contexts. At the heart of this research are questions about how political subjectivity, community and resistance arise through activist practice. Decoloniality, racism, capitalism, neoliberalism and the relationship between religion/secularism and North/South are of particular interest. South Asia, Latin America, Turkey and Scandinavia are some geographical starting points. The research group contributes to feminist theory and methodology through posing questions like: How can transnational movements be studied beyond organisations? Can knowledge gained through video-archives challenge and renew academic knowledge production? How can resistance be theorised as a space for interactions between micro and macro levels? What can we learn from the tensions surrounding concepts like civil society, equality and human rights?
