“Postethnic Activism in the Nordic Region - From Antiracist Feminism to Urban Mobilisation in Racialised Areas”

Suvi Keskinen (University of Helsinki)

Abstract:
The presentation discusses the new wave of activism in Sweden, Denmark and Finland that is framed around being racialised as other/non-white by the surrounding society rather than on ethnic group membership. It examines the understandings of the 'common' and the intersections of gender, race and class in these notions, as well as the dilemmas of alliance-building.

Speaker Bio:
Suvi Keskinen is Academy of Finland Research Fellow and Professor at the Centre for Research on Ethnic Relations and Nationalism, University of Helsinki, Finland. For more on Suvi’s work, see https://tuhat.helsinki.fi/portal/en/person/suvikesk 

The seminar will be chaired by Maria do Mar Pereira.
