Abstract [en]

Assisted Reproduction Across Borders  reflects on the state of the art of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs). From feminist perspectives, contributors explore how, today, ARTs have reached a ‘mature’ stage impying that some practices, eg, in vitro fertilization (IVF), have become standard worldwide. In focus are contemporary political debates triggered by ARTs, and the varying ways in which societies deal with ARTs, worldwide, depending on religious, moral and political approaches.  Such  differences are analysed, based on original research contributions from a variety of countries in Europe and beyond. The volume demonstrates how differently ARTs are interpreted and practised in different contexts, for example, confronting discussions of surrogacy practices from the perspective of the global South and the global North. Early feminist struggles framed ARTs  in terms of technoscience gaining  control over women’s bodies, but also as  providing possibilities for freeing women from childbirth as a way to gender equality. More recently, however, ARTs have been celebrated as a facilitator of queer family-building, while surrogacy, egg and embryo donation has been criticized as exploitation of women’s reproductive labour. Contributors pinpoint that central contemporary concerns  are in/equalities in terms of access to ARTs and  the transnational biocapitalist traffic in gametes and gestational labour.

Abstract [en]

The introduction presents the rationale and main aims of the co-edited volume. It explains the starting points that assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) in the 21st century are no longer ‘new technology’ or cutting-edge science but are rather regarded as mundane practice, and that the reproductive possibilities opened by ARTs from commercialized transnational traffic in eggs, sperm, embryos and gestational labour to new queer family buildings continue to make legislators perplex and create moral dilemmas leading to all kinds of restrictions and exclusionary practices.  Against this background, the main purpose is defined  as taking stock of this complex situation, and look at the contradictions, disruptions and renegotiations which it generates – a purpose which gives rise to the framing of two more specific aims: 1) to study the social and cultural aspects of ARTs as something that is integrated into both public health services and people’s understanding of common ways to achieve pregnancy, 2) and to do so against the background of data gathered from a wide array of social, cultural and geopolitical contexts, combining a European focus with a strong global outlook, which opens possibilities  to reflect on the workings of different local constraints and enablings. The chapter also provides a detailed reflection on the complementary perspectives of the differently located contributions and the ways they each address one of five overall themes: transnational reproflows, national constraints and conditions, religious and other kinds of fundamentalism, demographic agendas and biopolitics, and ‘new normals’ and their discontents, considered important for a general understanding of  policies, discourses and practices of ARTs in the contemporary world.

Abstract [en]

With a point of departure in an analysis of three different parts of a necklace which I had made after the cancerdeath of my life partner, and a poem which I wrote about the key components of the necklace, I shall explore and pose questions regarding what   material remains of  human bodies  can do.  My inspiration is Spinoza and Deleuze asking the question: what bodies can do rather than asking what they are. I will push the question into the framework of queer death studies, asking what dead bodies, in casu, human dead bodies and material remains from them, can do?  I will explore three modes of doing: material remains of human dead bodies acting  1) as palpable symbol of the past, 2) as material  embodiment of the present,   and 3) as  embodied sign which may or may not be working across  imaginary  boundaries and temporalities.   This explorative work-in-progress paper is part of my project on a feminist materialist reontologizing of death, andgrounded in its  beliefs and assumptions that poetic and theoretical/philosophical  explorations which do not prioritize one over the other, are very important in terms of making new modes of relating to death unfold.

Abstract [en]

The chapter discusses the myth of Sweden as the most gender equal country in the world, seen from point of view of negative images projected onto Sweden in mainstream media in neighbouring country Denmark, which in some respects may stand in for more general international trends. Via two case studies, Danish media debates on the ’gender-neutral’ pedagogy of the kindergarden, Egalia, in Stockholm, and the Danish debates following in the wake of Swedish-Iranian journalist and poet Athena Farrokzhad’s review of Danish-Palestinian poet Yahya Hassan’s poetry collection in the Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet, the chapter pinpoints how Sweden is rendered as fundamentalist, but also exceptional in terms of  the way in which issues of equality, gender, race, feminism and anti-racism are taken into account in the country. Against the background of the analysis, the chapter claims that it is important to unpack  these debunking and  anti-Swedish discourses on Swedish  ’equality fundamentalism’, produced outside of Sweden, among others because they contribute to confirm the myth of Sweden as exceptionally  (gender) equal, glossing over actual inequalities in Sweden.

Abstract [en]

Background: Swedish Health and Medical Services act states that good care should be given to the entire population on equal terms. Still studies show that access to care in Sweden differ related to for example gender and socioeconomic variables. One of the areas in Swedish health care that has attracted attention for potential inequity in access is Cataract Extraction (CE). Previous studies of access to CE in Sweden show that female patients have in general poorer vision before they are operated and longer waiting times for CE than male patients. The aim of the study was to describe the waiting times in different patient groups with regards to visual acuity, gender, age, native country, educational level, annual income and whether the patient was retired or still working. Methods: The study was designed as a register study of 102 532 patients who have had CE performed in Sweden 2010-2011. Linear regression was used to analyse the association between patient characteristics and waiting times. Mean waiting times for women and men were calculated for all groups. Results: At significance level p < 0.05 longer waiting times corresponded to patients having good visual acuity, being of female gender, high age, retired, born outside the Nordic countries and having low income and education. Calculations of mean waiting times for all groups showed that women had longer waiting times than men. Conclusions: The differences between groups defined, for example, by gender, age, native country, income, education and retirement are statistically significant. We do not consider them as clinically significant, but we consider the consistent pattern that we have found noteworthy in relation to the principle of equity in health care.

Abstract [en]

Framed by a theoretical understanding based  on key concepts such a preconfigured user and unexpected stakeholders,  the report presents the collaboration between Volvo Group Trucks Technology and Tema Genus, Linköping University,  which have initiated a  pilot project to foster disruptive norm critical innovation at Volvo. The aim has been to 1) further develop existing methods for initiating innovation by bringing in disruptive norm critical innovation methods into already existing ‘tool boxes for innovation’ at Volvo, 2) develop a particular tool box to enhance disruptive norm critical innovation across existing ‘tool boxes’, and 3) develop a disruptive norm critical innovation tool box targeting the leadership program at Volvo Trucks to enable better management and integration of norm critical innovation processes at Volvo. The aims were fulfilled through two workshops, based on radical models for democratic discussion and unfolding of social fantasy: the future workshop and the world café.
