Invitation to seminar Fatherhood in Transition - Talk by Firouz Gaini

Firouz Gaini from the University of the Faroe Islands, who is visiting AAU from Nov 26th - 28th, will be giving a talk on: Fatherhood and masculinity in the Faroes today.

Time

26.11.2018 kl. 10.30 - 12.00

Description

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? This paper discusses Faroese fatherhood and masculinity from new perspectives. It 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’.
