This book presents a more nuanced picture to the English-speaking world, interrogating the constructions, negotiations and transformations of gender and power in a diversity of texts and textual practices Gender theory informs all sixteen essays in this volume, and a productive and provocative juxtaposition of boundaries is in evidence throughout. Power and its distribution in society are analysed both as a problem central to the construction of the nation-state, and as a dynamic underlying cultural texts. Text is understood in this volume in a wide sense, encompassing painting, handicrafts, film, photography and installations, as well as poetry, the novel, and drama.

The texts explored by the contributors belong to the Danish, Finnish, Finland-Swedish, Norwegian, Sami, and Swedish traditions.
