En feministisk queeranalys av Gerd Brantenbergs Egalias döttrar : Hur språket upprätthåller de heteronormativa strukturerna

by Ericson, Aila-Lisa

Abstract (Summary)
The idea of this paper is to try to give the novel of Gerd Brantenberg, Egalias döttrar, another profundity. To take the book to another dimension, by using the theory of Judith Butler, queer, and her criticism of the Monique Wittig’s earlier theories of the subject queer. I examine how the language is used through a queer analysis by performing a closely reading. My position is that the language assumes a heterosexual norm, which is unveiled by queer. Further I analyse the impor-tance of penetration in the heterosexual society.
