Research seminar. Firouz Gaini from the University of the Faroe Islands, who is visiting FREIA from Nov 26th - 28th, will discuss: Fatherhood and masculinity in the Faroes today.
The Faroe Islands is often presented as a traditional, family-oriented society with conservative cultural values and strong religious identities. This is normally the premise of the public debate on gender, sexuality, and parenthood in the Faroes. However, is this a representation fitting the realities of the Faroe Islands anno 2018? The presentation is based on a new research project (starting in November 2018) called ‘Faroese Fatherhood in Transition? Exploring everyday life, family relations, and masculinity across two generations of men in contemporary Faroe Islands’.
The seminar is financed by a grant from Nordplus 'Teacher Mobility' programme
