Together, we examine identity politics and activism of social movements on gender, sexuality, and race in Scandinavia. The course offers a theoretical introduction to the concept of identity politics and empirical insights into activism and social movements in a Scandinavian context. Throughout the course, hands-on experience with activism embodies a theoretical understanding of identity politics, enabling you to critically reflect on what role collective action plays in social change.
