Funded by Swedish Research Council 2012-2018. The aim of the project is to systematically bring key theoretical and methodological strands of feminist intersectional analysis into dialogue and to set up arenas for cross-fertilizations leading to new, more comprehensive and transgressive analytical approaches and theoretical understandings of intersectional gender and its embeddedness in processes of sociocultural change. In so doing, we aim to build on the successful experiences of transversal research dialogues and collaboration, developed within the framework of the Centre of Gender Excellence, GEXcel. We will also contribute to the more permanent anchoring of the excellence-centre activities in an international Collegium for Advanced Gender Studies, CATgender, which the gender studies milieux at LiU and ÖU are currently setting up, and which should be in place from 2012 to ensure synergies between the here proposed research and CATgender research activities.
