Selected projects

  • Eivor & Mai – Research and development project for Gender Equality work from a power perspective. Anna Wahl and Charlotte Holgersson.

    This projects aims at contributing to increased gender equality in film and material science in Sweden. The purpose is to develop knowledge on gender equality work in practice, and to develop theories on methods for change. To increase gender awareness is crucial when challenging gendered organizational cultures, the project is based on a mix of lectures, exercises and reflective discussions. The project builds on previous projects by the researchers, e.g project Harriet and Moviement, to include knowledge on the two industries and on their relation to and experience from gender equality work. Several reports and articles will be published from the project.

    AW has also published a popular report based on a study about gender equality in Swedish film, edited by WIFT, Women in Film and Television in Sweden: Wahl, Anna & Ottilia Wahl (2016) No sexism please – we’re Swedish.

  • Gendering of Technology, focus on ICT. Anna Wahl and Åsa Johansson (PhD student)

    The Tech Industry is male dominated, and technology often gendered masculine. Definitions of technology are to a large extent based on ideas of masculinities and men. The role of the engineer is formed by this discourse and practice, and often difficult to challenge from a gender equality perspective. This project is exploring the gendering of technology in general, and specifically of the gendering in the ICT sector. One recently published and related article is:
