NORA - Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research


interdisciplinary journal of gender and women's studies with an emphasis on the various Nordic positions of feminist and gender research, but international contributions are also welcomed; including book reviews, interviews, essays etc.

NORA is an interdisciplinary journal of gender and women’s studies and a conduit for high-quality research from, and across, all disciplines. Rooted in the politics of its Nordic location, the journal recognizes and conveys in particular the situatedness of Nordic feminist research. NORA puts emphasis on the various Nordic positions of feminist research, but simultaneously for its transnational entanglements. In effect, the journal partakes in larger intranational conversations on gender and other intersecting categories of analysis. NORA is thus a forum for transversal conversations, creative and critical feminist thought, and comparative perspectives. Acknowledging the need to speak across borders, NORA challenges academic and disciplinary, linguistic and national limits and boundaries. Situated in the Nordic context and international in scope, the editors welcome contributions from all countries, and from across the full kaleidoscopic range of feminist political, empirical and theoretical standpoints.

NORA especially promotes:

· Nordic differences: debate among Nordic and non-Nordic feminist researchers on the situated, linked and diverse nature of Nordic feminisms in changing political, historical and cultural contexts.

· Intra- and intersectionality studies: creative and critical feminist dialogues and methodological advances across multiple axes of differentiation and signification, such as religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, cultural capital, age, mother tongue, dis/ability, to mention only a few.

· Engagements with “the ontological turn” of feminist thought: human and non-human embodiment, posthumanities, biopolitics, animal studies and material feminisms, the environment and the natural sciences.

· Power in practice: changing power relations and subjectivities - debates on equality, policy directives and regulations in state and organisation, research politics and social change, gouvernmentality.
