Love Studies: A (Re)New(ed) Field of Feminist Knowledge Interests
Örebro University, School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences. (Centrum för feministiska samhällsstudier)
2014 (English)In: Love: A Question for Feminism in the Twenty-First Century / [ed] Anna G. Jónasdóttir and Ann Ferguson, New York and London: Routledge, 2014, p. 11-30Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Successively through the 1990s and specifically since the millennium shift a growing interest in the subject of love can be seen in various scholarly disciplines and interdisciplinary research areas, among them areas where love as a topic would hardly be expected. The aim of this chapter is to investigate the changes in attention paid to the subject of love among both non-feminist and feminist scholars. The "love question" is addressed in three ways. First, I support the claim, launched in the chapter title, for Love Studies as a new field, summarizing briefly my own work on the subject. Secondly, I provide an account of the former reluctance to deal with love and how that attitude is changing. Third, I propose a preliminary answer to the main questions raised in the chapter about what the current interest in love signals and its implications for feminism.
