Ulrika Dahl, Marianne Liljeström, Ulla Manns, The Geopolitics of Nordic and Russian Gender Research 1975–2005, Södertörn Academic Studies, Södertörn University 2016.

Available as .pdf here.

This book examines how a geopolitical grammar works in Nordic and Russian academic feminism and how understandings of a joint feminist “we”, of “Nordicness” and ideas of an “East/West-Divide” shape the formation of gender research fields.

In three distinct chapters, each with a different approach to theories, methods and source materials, the book explores the implications of language, translation, and situated knowledges in the development of gender research as a geopolitical area and particular academic space during the mid-1970s until 2005, and considers feminist knowledge production as a field of power relations.
