Queer research group

The Queer research group gathers researchers with interests in non-normative genders and sexualities. Members have different disciplinary backgrounds and interests, including LGBTQ studies, transgender studies, studies of heteronormativity, sexual health, non-heterosexual (assisted) reproduction, queer kinship and family-making and intimacy, histories and contemporary forms of LGBTQ activism and cultural production, LGBTQ literature and queer readings, queer digital cultures and gaming, and forms of state and interpersonal violence against and among LGBTQ people.

We meet regularly to discuss our own research, read new literature and discuss current topics and debates in queer studies. We welcome guest researchers and colleagues from around Uppsala University and beyond, who share an interest in queer studies broadly defined.

Connected to the queer research group is the Queer seminar, which has been an international online seminar since the fall of 2020. In the spring of 2023, the Queer research group will also host an online reading group and PhD course. Professor Jack Halberstam will be visiting 13-17 March 2023,  and there will be a symposium 16-17 March 2023: "Thinking Wildly with Jack Halberstam"
