What is the status of queer readings today? This issue of lambda nordica is a double special issue on queer readings, which has departed from this question, and the contributions show that queer reading practices are highly relevant as well as wide in scope. They display a variety of different queer approaches to literature and texts, and the contributors focus on different genres as well as texts from different time periods. The issue confirms that queer readings is a vital field with the critical potential to challenge norms and power structures, but also to discover new ways in which power operates.
lambda nordica is a Nordic-based scientific peer-reviewed journal presenting research in Humanities and Social Sciences with relation to LGBT and Queer Studies. We strive to support the dialogue between established and younger scholars to inspire to more LGBTQ research in the Nordic area and support the initiative to new research areas in the field. The journal also introduces and reviews international LGBTQ literature.
