Scandinavia was among the first countries to protect the rights of LGBTQ citizens and all Scandinavian countries have introduced gay marriage. New reproductive technologies also open new forms of kinships and present new ethical questions. Similarly, transgendered people raise claims for new conceptions of gendered citizenships. In this course, you explore the history of the queer movements and study the cultural, social, and political aspects of LGBTQ life in Northern European societies.
