Roskilde, DenmarkGender and Diversity—Travelling Concepts across Time and Space
Any field of research has key analytical concepts, including gender studies. In this course
some of the key analytical concepts are identified, their history is illustrated and their
applicability discussed. Concepts often become fashionable – and salient - and turn into
fast travelling concepts. However, analytical notions are also situated in space which has
been shown for the concept of ‘class’ and recently ‘intersectionality’.
