Feminist and LGBTI+ Activism across Russia, Scandinavia and Turkey. Transnationalizing Spaces of Resistance

Book Launch
Book Feminist and LGBTI+ Activism across Russia, Scandinavia and Turkey
Friday, September 16, 2022, 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

What do struggles for women’s and LGBTI+ rights in Russia, Turkey and the Scandinavian countries have in common? And what can actors who struggle for rights and justice in these contexts learn from each other? Based on a multisited ethnography of feminist and LGBTI+ activisms across Russia, Turkey and the Scandinavian countries, we explored transnational struggles on various levels, from the micro-scale of the everyday to large-scale, spectacular events. 

In this lecture we present our book by following the International Women’s Day in diverse locales in Sweden, Turkey, and Russia to explore how resistance flows across various scales and demonstrate the significance of embodied forms of resistance for the (re)making of space. Based on three ethnographic case studies we visualize the potential of corporeal modes of resistance that shift from the individual to the collective.
