First Ph.D. in gender studies

18 06 2005

cissi.jpg Yesterday the first Ph.D. in gender studies (in Sweden?) was awarded to my great
friend Cecilia Åsberg at the Department of Gender Studies at the Tema Institute.
She had Merete Lie from the Nowegian Insitute for Interdisciplinary Culture Studies
in Trondheim as opponent. Cecilia handled the defense elegantly. Her dissertation
is called Genetiska föreställningar: Mellan genus och gener i populär/vetenskapens
visuella kulturer (Genetic representations: Between Gender and Genes in Popular/Scientific
Visual Culture). She uses STS, Culture Studies, Visual Culture, and Intersectional
theories to illuminate how genes are represented. The party afterwards was a blast.
I have rarely been to a party where there were so many tributes. Go Cissi!
