She is Co-Director of GEXcel International Collegium for Advanced Transdisciplinary Gender Studies and a researcher at the Centre for Feminist Social Studies. She is the editor of the Nordic Journal for Gender Studies (www.tegeve.se).
Strid’s research departs from feminist social theory and focuses on violence as a post-disciplinary research field, gender (in)equality architectures, and feminist civil society. She has produced and co-produced more than one hundred articles, chapters, books, reports, proceedings and conference papers and delivered some twenty research reports to the European Commission. Her research is financed by various EU institutions and research councils, including the European Commission, European Parliament, the European Institute for Gender Equality and the Swedish Research Council.
Strid is a board member of The Institute for Thematic Gender Studies, The Swedish Association for Gender Researchers and an ORU representative in AtGender: The European Association for Gender Research, Education and Documentation. She is the vice chair of the Nordic Association for Women’s and Gender Studies.
Her current project, Violence Regimes (2018-2021), is funded by th Swedish Research Council and brings together research from multiple disciplines to empirically and theoretically examine if and how the institutionalisation and production of violence in a given territory co-vary as to constitute a regime of violence, and how such regimes translate into (gender) welfare state regimes.
