This article investigates the phenomenon of 'shifts in desire' amongst students of gender studies at five universities in Sweden. Taking its starting point in a fascination of the subversive political potential of challenging the predominant discourse of sexual essentialism it examines which aspects of gender studies my informants attach importance to when relating them to their shifts in desire. The investigation builds on a survey conducted by the author 2007, which revealed that shifts in desire, sexual practices and/or gender identities are relatively common amongst gender studies students. Building on these results the article examines how the 'shifts' are perceived and explained theoretically and politically by the students. The analysis reveals that it is a combination of subversive potential, the norm divergence in the curriculum as well as the 'non-heteronormative' context of gender studies that facilitates the students´ 'shifts in desire'.
