Abstract [en]

This article examines different narratives of feminism in the Nordic region, drawing on a variegated material collected during ethnographic fieldwork with feminist actors. At first, we examine how women and lgbt feminists of color navigate and negotiate everyday space in a struggle against racism, transphobia, misogyny and islamophobia, and suggest that these enactments shape a narrative of feminism around a logic of interconnections. Then, we explore the logic of a current influential developmental narrative of Nordic feminism as a forerunner on a global arena. Here, we offer a set of autoethnographical vignettes to highlight and explore the key logics such a narrative relies upon. We propose that a feminist narrative of interconnections illuminate another narrative logic than the developmental logic currently influential in narrations of Nordic feminisms. Creating linkages to historical memory and to the present multiplicity of relations of power, we suggest that a feminist narrative of interconnections opens up new political questions and new feminist agendas in this context. We use these discussions to illuminate a shift in the relationship between civil society and the state in this context and suggest that a methodology of histories as connected fruitfully can capture these changes, due to its possibility to bridge, and attend to, the ambivalence inherent in history as multiple.
