Vol. 18 No. 1 (2013): Activism
A special issue on Activism, guest edited by Fanny Ambjörnsson and Janne Bromseth. This special issue of lambda nordica, guest edited by Fanny Ambjörnsson and Janne Bromseth, is concerned with queer activism in Sweden. Departing from themes such as Pride parades, queer porn film festivals and protests, it addresses how resistance to heteronormativity takes shape in public space. Simultaneously, it calls attention to and historicizes the everyday dimensions of contemporary activism. Thus, the articles are not only concerned with the period in which queer activism developed in Sweden – generally understood as from the mid-1990s and onwards – but also point to significant links to the lesbian feminist movement which queer can be understood to be part of in the Swedish context. All articles are in Swedish but include abstracts in English.
