Faroese fatherhood in transition: Exploring everyday life, family relations and across two generations of men in contemporary Faroe Islands

Project Details


This interdisciplinary project presents new perspectives on gender and gender differences in the Faroes. It investigates the Faroese family model by exploring the everyday lives, (gender) identities, and intergenerational relations of men of diverse background. The project promotes (local) knowledge on fatherhood and parenthood across two generations, and connects this knowledge to social, political and economic contexts. The main aim is to generate new insights, develop new knowledge, and to identify existing manifestations of gender inequalities in society.
