Making room för menstruality

Menstruation is a fundamental part of why we all even exist, yet it is heavily entangled in discrimination and stigatization of women and menstruators. This PhD project explores the everyday menstruality through an ethnographic study of menstruators practces in their homes. What normativities are produced? What boundaries of right/wrong, dirsty/clean, disgusting/palatable are drawn? The project tries to take bodies, bodily fluids, objects, technologies, and rooms seriously: what roles do they play? And what does this tell us about the space in which menstruality is made possible or impossible in our society? How can we make more room for menstrual existance?
