Uncomfortable Institutional Attachments
Ellen Suneson, Department of Gender Studies, Lund University
About the seminar: In this seminar I attend to uncomfortable, agonizing and at points embarrassing attachments between feminist or queer feminist scholars and academic institutions. I suggest that lingering with the emotional and intellectual ties between feminist and queer feminist scholars and the institutions within which we often reside might facilitate a less ideal yet more trustworthy framework from which to conceptualize the complex relation between individuals and structures.
