Sexuality and disability through lenses of law: affirming self-determination and equality principles, February 27
Welcome to the spring’s first seminar in our Crip & Queer seminar series! First out is Carla Maria Reale from the University of Trento (Italy), currently a guest PhD student at our department. Carla will lecture on the intersection of sexuality, disability and law. Below you find a description of her seminar. Hope to you see there!
The seminar will focus on the topic of sexuality and disability in the perspective of Law. The first part will be dedicated to the discussion of the paradigm offered by the social model of disability and the more recently developed Feminist theory of disability and Crip theory. It will be shown how the latter shifted the attention of disability studies on body and sexuality.
In the second part it will be considered how Law wasn’t affected by the growing debate on sexuality and disability, remaining silent on the topic. From the analysis of common principles on disability law, both international and domestic, it will be argued how there is no common ground in the field of sexuality. The UN CRPD (Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities) itself, despite being a revolutionary instrument, doesn’t provide strong tools on the matter. From this point of view, sexual assistance as a possible way to foster sexual agency and sexual rights of people with disabilities will be discussed. 


Accessibility: The building is wheelchair accessible. There is an elevator, automatic doors and accessible toilet. The presentation will be around 45 minutes with a 15 min break. The remaining time will be intended for discussion and questions. Please contact us if there is anything we should know and can do in advance so that you can come and take part.

Social Worker Labor Day, March 6
The Labor Market Day SAM work offers the perfect opportunity for organizations and business as well as future social scientists at Lund University to meet and network; a meeting place where a lot of experience and knowledge are gathered in one place.
SAM work gives students and organizations an opportunity to meet as potential future employers and potential future employees. 

SAM work is aimed at approximately 6500 social science students at Lund University. The Labor Market Day SAM work took place for the first time in 2014 and has grown every year. The fair consists of exhibiting organizations that have an interest in meeting and offering social science students extra jobs, internships, essay areas and, not least, future careers. During SAM work, students gather with a wide range of knowledge, ranging from political scientists and communicators to staff scientists and social workers.   

Competencies that social scientists carry are general and formable, knowledge that is necessary in all types of companies and organizations. Some examples of these competencies are problem solver, analytical, communicative, critical thinking, good collaborative ability, adaptable, ability to see and understand several relationships. SAM work helps students create a better understanding of what the labor market has to offer!

Time: March 6 – 10:00 - 15:00
Place: Eden

Gender, queer and cultural heritage (in Swedish), March 7
Pia Laskar, historian of ideas, researcher at the State Historical Museums.
The project Unstraight research in museums (2016-2018, funded by the Swedish Arts Council) arose as a collaboration between the activist museum The Unstraight Museum, Livrustkammaren and the Historical Museum. One of the aims of UR was to implement queera perspectives in exhibition productions, another to write a method book based on this work. During the course of the work, the construction of a network became important for reconciling the research front within gender and sexuality studies with cultural heritage professionals. Therefore, the network Cultural Heritage and the interdisciplinary gender research (financed by the National Heritage Board 2017-2019) was started in collaboration with the National Secretariat for Gender Research. During the seminar I will present the network and results from Unstraight research in museums and invite to discussion on how gender researchers and gender institutions can collaborate with cultural heritage professionals to strengthen each other's work. The language of this event is Swedish.

Time: March 7 – 13:15 - 15:00 
Place: Department of Gender Sciences Room M221

Other News and Events


Re-move to remove, March 5
Talk by Chan Sook Choi (artist)

Re-move is an autobiographical research (2010-present) project that deals with 'Migrant Women after WW II in Asia’ and people that cross borders, who take passive forms, hidden behind the axis of history. Like Oscar Wilde’s statement “Most people are other people”, the project Re-move does not keep a welcoming stance on a matchless identity, but deconstructs and hybridizes the concept of the ‘pure’ culture. These women are categorized into various names, such as comfort women for Japanese army, my Japanese grandmother who married a Korean laborer dispatched to Japan just before Korea’s liberation from Japan and the grandmothers of ‘Yang Ji Ri’ who migrated to the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone) propaganda Village. I want to keep their distance from a form that appeals to the power of the dominant identity, while also rejecting the collective identity as ‘victims’ . While removing the illusory unity of identity, or fate, Re-move also demonstrates the world’s conflicts and brutality perpetuated by the illusion of identity or fate, not through epistemological means but through artistic research.


Chan Sook Choi received her Diplom's degree in Visual Communications and Media Art as well as her master's degree at University der Künste in Berlin. Germany. Choi won the grand prize at the international media art competition hosted by Bibliart and Pergamon Museums in 2008, and was selected the artist of Nafoeg project in 2009, a young artist support program sponsored by the City of Berlin. 2017 She granted to Visual Artist from the llse-Augustin Foundation at the City Museum in Berlin. In Korea, Choi presents her work in Private Collection as a selected artist of the NArT, a young artist support program sponsored by the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture in 2010. Since then, Choi was also selected Tomorrow's Artist by Sungok Art Museum(2012), the Young Artist Prize at Alternative Space Loop(2015), and Young Artist Support Program at Seoul Museum of Art (2017). Choi has also been conducting her narratology experimentations on psychological migration and the human memory as a medium through a multi and interdisciplinary methodological approach, in performances as the National Theater of Korea, Galaxy Museum of Contemporary Art Sacheon, REAL DMZ PROJECT Kunsthal Aarhus, Humbolt Forum Berlin, Grimmuseum Berlin, Art Sonjae Center Seoul and Ars Electronica Linz, etc.This event is organized with support from The Academy of Korean Studies.

Fighting Climate Change – Mapping the pathway with social movements, March 6
Welcome to a public lecture and panel discussion with climate change activist and founder of 350.org Bill McKibben, and climate change activist and Swedish labor and transport union representative Ulf Jarnefjord.

The actions adopted by national governments to reduce GHG emissions remain insufficient to keep global warming below 1.5 C. In the face of such inaction, and the ongoing rise of populist politics worldwide, we see a renewal of interest in the role of social movements to addressing climate change. But how can addressing environmental problems be accomplished without undermining the needs of working, marginalized or otherwise disadvantaged groups in society? The widely publicized Yellow Vest protests in France offer a strong case-in-point. 


To shed light on this urgent issue we welcome internationally renowned climate change activist and founder of 350.org Bill McKibben, together with climate change activist and Swedish labor and transport union representative Ulf Jarnefjord, for a public lecture and panel discussion. Bill and Ulf will be joined on the panel discussion by researchers from the organizing Pufendorf IAS Advanced Study GroupCivil Society and Sustainability Studies(CIVICSUS).


The event is organized by the Pufendorf IAS Advanced Study Group Civil Society and Sustainability Studies (CIVICSUS) in collaboration with Lund University Agenda 2030 Graduate School
The Pufendorf IAS advanced study group Civil Society and Sustainability Studies (CIVICSUS) aims to bring together civil society actors and an interdisciplinary team of researchers and educators to explore this core question and its ramifications: How can a scientific understanding of sustainability challenges contribute to social movements for sustainability?
The event is open to everyone, although seats are limited. No registration needed.
