Om intervjun från institutionens engelska webb:
In this episode of AnthroTalking we interview Mark Graham, Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Social Anthropology, Stockholm University. He was trained in Anthropology at the University of Cambridge and published his doctoral dissertation in Sweden at Stockholm University in 1999. Besides his work on refugee studies; material culture and consumption; organisational studies; sustainable urban development and planning; a main interest of his has always been gender and sexuality.
Mark Graham is specifically interested in the theoretical conceptualization of queerness and seeks new ways to extend its scope beyond merely sexual phenomena to include a wide range of areas of anthropological concerns. In this episode, he explains his concept of materiality within queer theory as developed in his recent publication, “Anthropological Explorations in Queer Theory”. He talks about the intriguing relation of queerness and smells and reveals what he finds attractive about doing fieldwork in Australia. He also gives advice on how to talk about queer topics in everyday life.
