A Comment Towards an Intergenerational Dialogue. – By Maria Svanström

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikelVetenskaplig


Sexual harassment legislations are formulated to hinder power abuse; but do we here, in the Avital Ronell case, discuss power abuses only of the patriarchal type, or also in divergent queer contexts? The specific forms that power abuse takes in these two major scenes (patriarchy vs. queer) do not need, out of some necessity, to differ significantly. However, as a person who has experienced both contexts I think that we really need to ask that question; and start to imagine a lexicon for it.
