Queerseminariet - "Who Will Inherit the Cat - Do We Need Queer Wills?”

What does the inheritance system mean for queer people? Should they write wills, and if so, why? The seminar presents a recent study based on empirical data from England, Russia, Sweden, Hungary, Romania and Finland on queer care and support relations.


Dr. Antu Sorainen, Academy Research Fellow at the Academy of Finland, is an assistant professor in Gender Studies at the University of Helsinki. She has published widely on queer history and legal matters, such as lesbian trials and the contingencies of sexual conceptualisations in the criminal law. Her current research is about queer kinship, in particular in the context of will-writing and inheritance legislation.
