This anthology deals with conservative and symbolic changes and ‘subversive traditionalism.’In the last decades we have witnessed certain replacements and reversals of hierarchies of gender both in Europe and globally. Global and local interconnectedness of different developments, strategies and struggles seem to be a clue to deeper societal and normative change.The articles deal with several challenges of generational, gendered, economic and sexual relations as well as with the changes of the institutions of marriage, state, religion, welfare and taxation in a global era.
