  • Call for Papers: Racialization and Racism in Denmark

    2022-04-04

    In recent years there has been an increase in calls for critical scholarship on race, racialization, and (anti-)racism in many fields, including those of gender and feminist studies in the Nordics. These calls emerge during a time when intensified attention coalesce around the global Movement for Black Lives, the protests that transpired from the #BlackLivesMatter (BLM) claim, and the manifestations of anti-colonial interventions such as the application of red paint to the statue of colonizer Hans Egede in Nuuk, Kalaallit Nunaat (21 June 2020). Concurrent with – and perhaps as a response to – these challenges to “the coloniality of power” (Quijano 2000) Danish governments continue to invest in policies that make migrants and refugees deportable and expose racial and religious minorities to expansive forms of control and surveillance through welfare state institutions. At the same time, research-based understandings of structural racism are delegitimized and specific areas of research, such as critical race theory, gender studies and migration studies, are being attacked in public political debates with claims of being unscientific and activist.

    This Special Issue of Women, Gender & Research (Kvinder, Køn & Forskning) aims to engage with these structural challenges, as well as explore the potential of a continued focus on racialization and racism within Danish gender and feminist studies.

  • Call for papers: Nordic histories and contemporary formations of HIV/AIDS

    2021-11-11

    AIDS was culturally, politically, and morally charged from its inception. First labeled as a ‘gay cancer’, the cultural understanding of, AIDS emerged both as a serious medical condition and ‘an epidemic of meanings and signification’ (Treichler, 1999). Since 1981, the AIDS-epidemic has radically changed cultures of sex, intimacy, identity, and community.

Kvinder, Køn & Forskning hilser bidrag i form af forskningsartikler, essays, kunstværker, debatindlæg, boganmeldelser og yderligere kommentarer hertil i overensstemmelse med den redaktionelle politik velkommen (se Indsendelser).

    Kønsforskningen og lignende forskningsfelter har i de sidste måneder været genstand for en række angreb fra udvalgte meningsdannere og politikere. Kvinder, Køn & Forskning bifalder at kønsforskningen diskuteres og underkastes kritiske blikke. Men vi finder alligevel grund til at rette en række misforståelser, der cirkulerer om tidsskriftet og dets artikler. I det følgende præsenterer vi tidsskriftets profil, vores forståelse af den forskning vi publicerer samt vores systematiske kvalitetssikring af denne
