Abstract [en]

An exploration of how global pharmaceutical products are localized - of what happens when they become ’glocal’ - this book examines the tensions that exist between a global pharmaceutical market and the locally bounded discourses and regulations encountered as markets are created for new drugs in particular contexts. Employing the case study of the emergence, representation and regulation of Viagra in the Swedish market, Glocal Pharma offers analyses of commercial material, medical discourses and legal documents to show how a Swedish, Viagra-consuming subject has been constructed in relation to the drug and how Viagra is imagined in relation to the Swedish man.

Engaging with debates about pharmaceuticalization, the authors consider the ways in which new identities are created around drugs, the redefinition of health problems as sits of pharmaceutical treatment and changes in practices of governance to reflect the entrance of pharmaceuticals to the market. With attention to ’local’ contexts, it reveals elements in the nexus of pharmaceutcalization that are receptive to cultural elements as new products become embedded in local markets.

An empirically informed study of the ways in which the presence of a drug can alter the concept of a disease and its treatment, understandings of who suffers from it and how to cure it - both locally and internationally - this book will appeal to scholars of sociology and science and technology studies with interests in globalization, pharmaceuticals, gender and the sociology of medicine.

Abstract [en]

Celebrating more than two decades of feminist theory and gender research, this book provides an essential overview of current theoretical positions, hot topics and state-of-the-art perspectives in the field of Nordic Gender Studies: an area currently facing the challenges of internationalization and destabilized well fare states, intersectionality, materiality, and academic transformation.

Forming an overview, the introductory texts collected here are intended for Nordic and international students and teachers specializing in gender studies or related areas of interdisciplinary humanities and social sciences. With vibrant contributions from Nordic and international key scholars, think pieces and position papers culled from NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, are in fact essential reading for anyone in need of accessible yet condensed guidance on key discussion points, such as post-constructionism and new materialism, neo-liberal academia and interdisciplinarity, and the role of critical gender theory and posthumanism. The volume also looks at the differences within Nordic Gender Studies of today.

This book is made up of material that was previously published in various issues of NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research.

Abstract [en]

Taking into account intersecting trends in political, academic, and popular engagements with environmental issues, this paper concerns the development of environmental humanities as an academic field of inquiry, specifically in this new era many are calling the Anthropocene. After a brief outline of the environmental humanities as a field, we delimit four problems that currently frame our relation to the environment, namely: alienation and intangibility; the post-political situation; negative framing of environmental change; and compartmentalization of “the environment” from other spheres of concern. Addressing these problems, we argue, is not possible without environmental humanities. Given that this field is not entirely new, our second objective is to propose specific shifts in the environmental humanities that could address the aforementioned problems. These include attention to environmental imaginaries; rethinking the “green” field; enhanced transdisciplinarity and postdisciplinarity; and increasing “citizen humanities” efforts.

Abstract [en]

This chapter proposes that climate imaginaries are a vital part of governance. In the particular context of the Anthropocene, there is a need to consider the kinds of orientations that an Anthropocene climate imaginary evokes, while also seeking out "alter-Anthropocene" imaginaries -- visions and practices that we might cultivate as engines of possibility for climate governance and beyond. To explore such alternatives, we use illustrations taken from climate art, supported by cultural theory emerging from critical feminist posthumanities. While feminist posthumanism is not typically connected to work on climate governance, we aver that its attention to the power of imaginaries to shape actions, as well as its focus on creative responses to worldly problems that are “more-than-human” in nature, present an important opportunity to address difficult-to-measure dimensions of climate governance: namely, the ability to reimagine ways of getting on in a world where humans are not the only bodies that matter, and where both humans and non-human bodies (including other species, elements, and geophysical forces) are entangled in the exigencies of climate change.

In lieu of an abstract; This short position piece takes a critical and creative look at the concept of resilience and compares it with the feminist notion of the cyborg. It finds that both are ambigious concepts for founding politics, ethics and practices of environmental justice.
