About

In this course we will investigate and discuss the contemporary Swedish family. The course will provide a general outlook on the structure, form and mobility of the family,as well as a closer and more thorough analysis of different developments within the family. Some of the topics that will be raised and discussed are fatherhood in transition, immigrant families and the construction of the other, and queer perspectives on the family. Although the general focus will be on the Swedish family, we will also position current developments and changes of the family in a global framework.
