lambda nordica is a peer-reviewed open-access academic journal of LGBTQ studies. The oldest of its kind in the Nordic region, the journal is dedicated to interdisciplinary research in lesbian/gay/bi/trans* and queer studies.
Vol. 27 No. 2 (2022): Open issue
This open issue includes research articles on LGBTQ people’s experiences of heteronormativity in Swedish Christian free-churches (Charlotta Carlström) and on queer heritage, explored through an analysis of a Finnish community art project (Visa Immonen). Piotr Sobolczyk’s essay scrutinises exotifying readings of contemporary Polish queer literature, while Masha Beketova’s We’re here thematises the colonial hegemony of English in European academia. Erika Alm and Elisabeth Lund Engebretsen's Editorial urges a (re)turn to queer scholarly work on the use of the spectre of LGBT in nationalist movements in Russia, and to work that show how femonationalism and homonationalism legitimise anti-multiculturalism and Islamophobia in a Europe at War. Three reviews of newly published PhD dissertations and books conclude this issue.
