Abstract [en]

Conservative and Far Right movements around the world have openly started a nearly religious mission to “put end to the gender ideology” in all areas in society. In Europe this anti-gender agenda was successively introduced and developed by different conservative and fair right parties BLOCK VI g 168 in Germany, Hungary, Poland, France, Slovakia since 2006 (Kováts & Põim 2015). With the purpose to develop a deeper understanding of the advance of this anti-gender agenda, this contribution analyses media and social media debates concerning the role and the position of gender studies in the Swedish higher education. The methodology used in this research is argument analysis of articles published in Swedish press (Svenska Dagbladet) and social media (Högskoleläckan) during the period November 2017 to December 2018. Paying attention to ethical issues in the analysis of social media data the names of the individuals concerned in the selected data has been removed. Preliminary findings of the study show that in this anti-gender agenda gender theories are considered as a dominant knowledge regime in Swedish higher education policy. This anti-gender agenda puts in question the role and the position of gender studies in higher education by criticizing its methodology and quality research as well as its existence as scientific field. However, this agenda is not only limited to criticize gender studies at higher education. It puts even in question research based on critical and postcolonial theories as well as current Swedish research in the Education field.
