Histories of Sexualities, Gender Diversity, and Queer in the Nordic and Baltic Region
Welcome to the conference
This interdisciplinary conference brings together scholars working on the histories of sexualities, gender diversity and queer in the Nordic and Baltic countries. While open for the different forms of sexualities and gender diversity in the past, the conference also commemorates the fifty years that have passed since the decriminalization of homosexuality in Finland in 1971. The conference is organized by Discipline of Political history and INEQ initiative (University of Helsinki), Discipline of Gender Studies (University of Helsinki), SQS – Society of Queer Studies in Finland, and Sexuality & Democracy research project (Kone Foundation / University of Helsinki). The conference is supported by Kansan Sivistysrahasto.
