Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationResearch


The American HBO series Euphoria (2019-) has been recognized for its unforced narrative about transgender. Danish focus group interviews on young high school series consumption showed this series as representative for how the series is acknowledged for its naturalised incorporation of the transgendered character Jules. Even though the series most important topic is drug abuse, its attention towards gender issues is significantly important too. This blog entry displays how a central sequence from the series, Nate’s breakdown scene (S1:E8), may provide high school teachers with material to teach complex seriality and gender issues altogether.
