About Lena Gunnarsson

I am head of Gender Studies and research and teach in the area.

Research Areas

  • Gender and feminist theory
  • Philosophy of science for the social sciences
  • Critical realism
  • Love and intimacy
  • Sexuality, sexual consent, sexual violence
  • Gender and health

Current Research
I currently lead a research project on involuntary celibacy and singlehood, which links these phenomena to broader configurations of the conditions of intimacy in postindustrial societies. I also work in a project that examines alternative knowledge claims about the health risks of the copper IUD, which are disseminated and discussed in social media. Recently finished research projects include a study on dynamics of sexual consent and a project on sugar dating in Sweden.
