This research report is comprised six lectures held at the Department of Sociology, University of Gothenburg during spring 1987. The encompassing theme of the lectures is »Gender, Power and the Division of Labour». Different subjects are taken up and these are examined from different perspectives. Harriet Bjerrum-Nielsen (Norway) discusses analytical reductionism in sociology and in psychology with examples from the interaction of boys and girls in elementary schoois. Anette Borchorst (Denmark) regards motherhood from a political and historical perspective with comparisions from the Scandinavian countries and England. Kajsa Sundström-Feigenberg (Sweden) focuses on reproduction and how it influences the life cydes of women. Jacquelyn Zita (USA) discusses feminist epistemology and the question of whether a feminist approach can co-exist with an approach that also claims to be »Value neutral». Cynthia Cockburn (England) deals with how gender relationships are maintained and even strengthened by the introduction of new technology. Jitka Lindn (Sweden) speaks of the difficulties in creating a female research identity in a male, middle dass research envirnoment. A number of fundamental problems are treated in the se lectures. One such problem is the question of whether women is perspectives can be added to traditional science or if these perspectives must, as a logical consequence, lead to a re-evaluation both of conventionai divisions between scientific disciplines and of what should generally be understood as »science». Another question confronted in several of the lectures is how to define and to deal with the concept of »power». The link between the social-psychological level and that of social structure is crucial. The question is: is it possible to operate on all levels with one concept of power? In publishingthese lectures we have included their respective references and a personal interview with each of the researchers.
