Nordic LGBTQ Histories
In this issue we explore Nordic LGBTQ histories. As we would like to present both macro and micro studies, we welcome contributions on both isolated topics, including personal stories, local incidents and pivotal historical moments, like scandals and media sensations, and general overviews, including theoretical and historiographical contributions.
We are interested not just in the field of history, but also anthropology, medicine, literature, sociology and law, particularly the legal history of homosexuality and transgenderism in the five Nordic countries, including the Faroe Islands, Greenland, the Sápmi Nation, and the Åland Islands.
The issue wants to present a broad picture of ongoing research on Nordic LGBTQ histories and we are interested in differences and similarities between the Nordic countries. The scope of the special issue is transdisciplinary and we encourage intersectional approaches where sexuality and gender are investigated as interrelated with among other areas, questions of ethnicity, class, age, disability, nationality, race and racialization.
Areas of particular interest include but are not limited to:
- The national LGBTQ organizations, their histories and ideologies
- Nordic cooperation
- The question of ‘Nordic exceptionalism’
- Early LGBTQ subcultures
- Media history of LGBTQ
- Transgender history
- The history of medicine in relation to LGBTQ
- Homosexuality, transgenderism and the law
- LGBTQ and Nordic literatures, film, drama and media
- LGBTQ and feminisms
- LGBTQ migration and the Nordic countries
- LGBTQ narratives in Nordic historiographies
For questions please contact the special issue editors.
Length of full paper will be 6-7000 words. Select special issue 'Nordic LGBTQ hHistories' when submitting your paper to ScholarOne.
The special issue will be out as issue 3 2022.
