Criticality, not paranoia: a generative register for feminist social research


“Taking Turns” is an open forum for brief and rapid assessments of changes emerging in the field and its discontents. In this series, we invite Nordic as well as non-Nordic scholars to present their take on contemporary challenges for feminist scholarship and gender research. In this issue, we are handing the relay over to Sasha Roseneil, Professor of Sociology and Social Theory, and Director of the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research at Birkbeck, University of London. She is also Professor II at the Centre for Gender Research at the University of Oslo. Professor Roseneil is currently chair of the Psychosocial Studies Network in the UK, and from 2007 to 2011 she was Deputy Scientific Director of the EU-funded project FEMCIT. Her recent research has involved the study of intimacy, subjectivity, personal life, citizenship, and social movements, engaging with queer, feminist, and psychoanalytic theory, and using comparative and biographical-narrative methods
