Launch of Mainstreaming Politics by Carol Bacchi

Associate Professor Malin Rönnblom, of the Umeå Centre for Gender Studies in Sweden, launched Mainstreaming Politics by Carol Bacchi and Joan Eveline in the Barr Smith Library’s Ira Raymond Room on Friday, 28 May 2010.

In her speech, Malin said: “Mainstreaming Politics is in my view an immensely important contribution to the field of gender studies, both more generally because it addresses crucial questions of how to conceptualise gender, also in relation to the so called other dimensions of privilege and power such as ethnicity, race and class, and because it puts forward a gender analysis that reaches outside the empirical focus of this publication, and more specificly in relation to the quite broad field of studies on gender equality and gender mainstreaming, not least in the Nordic countries and Europe.”  The full speech is available here.
