Gabriele Griffin is Professor of Gender Research at Uppsala University, Sweden. Through her interest in contemporary women’s writing she moved into Women’s and Gender Studies. Prior to that she held the Anniversary Chair in Women's Studies at the University of York, UK. She was co-editor of Feminist Theory (1999-2009), and is editor of the ‘Research Methods in the Arts and Humanities’ series of Edinburgh University Press (http://www.euppublishing.com/series/RMAH). Her research interests centre on contemporary women’s writing; women’s cultural production; feminist theatre; and writing diaspora. She has also written extensively on Women’s/Gender Studies as a discipline and on research methods. She has co-ordinated EU-funded research on more sociological topics such as women’s employment and on methodological issues. Most recently she has published Cross-Cultural Interviewing (ed., Routledge 2016); Challenging the Myth of Gender Equality in Sweden (co-ed., Policy Press, 2016); and edited with Matt Hayler (Birmingham University) Research Methods for Reading Digital Data in the Digital Humanities (Edinburgh UP, 2016).
At present she is working on a monograph on non-normative identities, on a Dictionary of Gender Studies for Oxford University Press, and on collaboration in Digital Humanities.
Professor Griffin will be visiting professor at the GI from April 2016 to March 2019.
