Professor for History Education and head of the Margherita von Brentano Center for Gender Studies at Free University Berlin
Principle Investigator of sub-project F: “Human rights, queer genders and sexualities since the 1970s”

As a historian who deals with the history of sexualities, it is my concern, how gender and law could influence the potentials and spaces of action, the agency of gay and lesbian movements: has law been experienced as repressive – or did the movements succeed in acquiring law as an emancipatory resource? And which concepts of gender were picked up by the queer movements for emancipatory purposes and which gender concepts should be overborn?
