    Women’s bodies and Men’s Honour: Supporting Middle eastern migrant women who have experienced honour violence2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a study of gender and honour, focusing on NGO’s who work to support women in Sweden who have escaped honour violence. The purpose of this thesis is to find out and explain how they make sense of honour and more specifically, to investigate how does Swedish authorities can help the Middle Eastern women who are victims under this tradition.

    My focus through this thesis will be on the data analysis, moreover, using intersectionality as an analytical tool will help to explain the intersections which lead to the honour killings.

    The results show that the honour violence still exists in the Swedish society as well as the Middle East, in addition, some Middle Eastern people who moved to Sweden still believe and practice the honour culture in the Swedish society. More than that, I got the answers for all the research questions which helped me to clarify the relation between honour and its intersections which helped me to know the reasons why does the Honour violence/killings can happen. The answers agree that the honour violence is connected to the shame and guilt cultures. The meaning of honour is different in different cultures. Most of the honour related cases have women as victims. The honour has many intersections, most of them related to virginity, homosexuality, out marriage relations and rape. The Swedish organisations offer help for the victims of honour.

     More than that, reading my thesis will give the reader the understanding of the phenomena of Honour, its intersections and how it does exist in the Middle Eastern culture and its old traditions.

    ..what should I say?: – A feminist analysis of the intricacies of online dating2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As new technology develops, society develops with it; we find new ways to interact with our business associates, our friends, and our family. This study looks specifically at the ways individuals in our contemporary community express sexuality and how dating and forming new relationships is being affected. We begin with a brief history on the study of sex and sexuality, and continue with a section exploring theories and more contemporary research on the subject. Focusing on current social phenomenon such as gender objectification and the anonymity pertaining to online interactions, we investigate social media and phone/computer applications focused on dating. We look for answers to questions regarding how the evolution of sexuality influences power structures within a community, through empirical interviews and hidden online observations, and from a feminist perspective. The intricacies of text communication and the interpretation of such interactions is a cornerstone of modern dating, which this thesis analyses closely by looking at how the participants initiate contact with potential partners.

    Tor, Ola, Leo och Elsa: - en diskursanalytisk studie av hur genus konstrueras i två läseböcker avsedda för grundskolans tidigare åldrar2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien är att genom diskursanalys analysera hur genus konstrueras i två läseböcker avsedda för grundskolans tidigare åldrar. Vidare syftar uppsatsen till att undersöka huruvida konstruktionerna av genus i läromedlen förstärker och/eller bryter mot rådande genusstereotyper. Utgångspunkten för uppsatsen är teorier som ser genus, och vad vi uppfattar som kvinnligt och manligt, som sociala, kulturella, historiska konstruktioner, snarare än som biologiskt nedärvda, beständiga och oföränderliga egenskaper. Uppsatsen har ett diskursanalytiskt angreppssätt. Analysen syftar därmed till att analysera läsebokstext och söka diskurser i dessa, diskurser som visar på hur genus konstrueras i texterna. De tre mest framträdande genusdiskurser jag funnit vid textanalysen är Den duktiga flickan/Flickan som biroll, Flickan som objekt för pojkars kärlek och Pojken som huvudperson. Det faktum att flickor och pojkar i läseböckerna ofta positioneras i dessa diskurser resulterar i att läsebokstexterna i hög grad bidrar till att befästa och tradera rådande genusstereotyper. I båda läseböckerna förekommer dock även brott mot dessa stereotyper.

    Preschoolers’ Conceptions of Technological Artefacts and Gender in Picture Books2016In: PATT-32 Proceedings Technology Education for 21st Century Skills / [ed] J. de Vries, Arien Bekker-Holtland and Gerald van Dijk, ITEEA , 2016, 57-64 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Picture books are a frequent element of daily preschool activities (Damber, Nilsson & Ohlsson, 2013; Simonsson, 2004; SOU 2006:75). They are important pedagogical tools that can help children acquire an understanding of the everyday technology they come in contact with, as well as the human application of technology (Axell, 2015; Axell & Boström, 2015). These are skills that are emphasised in the Swedish preschool curriculum. In the curriculum it is also stated that the preschool should counteract traditional gender patterns and gender roles (Skolverket, 2010). However, an investigation of a selection of picture books aimed at preschool children shows that the books content is somewhat problematic. Many of the picture books provide a focus on the function of separate artefacts without any sort of context or explanation of their implications in a societal context. There also tends to be an emphasis on traditional masculine-coded technology in the books. Building and making and working with machines is depicted as a male activity. The male stereotype is essentially connected with different kinds of vehicles like cars, airplanes, motorbikes, tractors etc. (Axell & Boström, 2015; See also Holbrok, 2008). Based on these previous findings, the aim of this pilot study was to obtain an initial concept about how children’s literature may influence preschool children’s view on technological artefacts. The study was conducted through semi-structured interviews with four five-year-olds, two girls and two boys. Through a thematic analysis (Braun & Clarke, 2006) three overarching themes were identified: The relationship between design and function, anthropomorphic animals as users of artefacts, and gender and artefacts. Some of the key findings were that the 5-year-olds did not know what “technology” is, but had good knowledge about tools. Additionally, they did not genderise any of the artefacts included in the study.

    Rum och rörelse: vänbok till Forum för genusvetenskap och jämställdhet2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I akademin är det vanligt att man högtidlighåller och firar framstående och seniora professorer som fyller jämt genom att författa en vänbok. Jag har i min egen bokhylla flera sådana volymer och de har alla det gemensamt att kollegor eller andra som står jubilaren nära har författat ett kapitel eller avsnitt. Temat för boken brukar vara ett särskilt vetenskapligt fält, en fråga eller en metod som ligger födelsedagsbarnet varmt om hjärtat. På så sätt visar man professorn sin uppskattning och tecknar i viss mån hans eller hennes vetenskapliga värv. Det du nu håller i din hand är just en sådan vänbok men av ett litet annat slag. Jubilaren i det här fallet är nämligen inte en person, inte någon framstående forskare och professor. Jubilaren som tillägnas denna bok är en mycket speciell organisation i det akademiska landskapet och heter Forum för genusvetenskap och jämställdhet. Anledningen till att vi författat denna vänbok är att Forum som inrättning vid Linköpings universitetfyllt 25 år och vi vill på detta sätt hylla vår vän!

    Feeling the Speed - the Social and Emotional Investments in Dangerous Road Practices2012In: Gender and Change: power, politics and everyday practices / [ed] Maria Jansdotter Samuelsson, Clary Krekula, Magnus Åberg, Karlstad: Karlstad University Press, 2012, 37-52 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on gender aims to contribute towards a better society with the help of scientific tools. Change is therefore a key concept in gender studies. With a wide range of theoretical frameworks, methodological approaches and empirical materials from Sweden, Norway and Iceland, this book investigates how gender relations are shaped, reproduced, and challenged. Collectively, the papers in this volume point to where we are heading in terms of gender relations. Where are the seeds to change, and how does power make possible or impede on change?

    Developing Disruptive Normcritical Innovation at Volvo: Final Report2015Report (Other academic)
    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.

    A case study of post-earthquake consequences for women within marginalized groups in Nepal: A qualitative case study with the aim to explore the consequences for women within marginalized groups in a post-earthquake society2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report is the outcome of a case study conducted in Kathmandu, Nepal in April 2016. The purpose of the study is to investigate in the consequences of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, from the perspective of women within socioeconomically vulnerable groups. The caste system is still practiced nearly all over Nepal and women are still facing multiple forms of discrimination. A woman belonging to the Dalits, which is the group considered to be at the bottom of the hierarchy and below the castes, have no right to control land, housing or money and are exposed to violence and forced sexual labour. The aim of the study is to shed light over how already existing discrimination leads to further examples of discrimination in the aftermath of a natural disaster and the “class-consciousness” of natural disasters. People within a society are living under different conditions and these conditions lead to different consequences when facing a natural disaster. The components of these conditions are often intertwined with each other and should therefore not be examined separately, which is why an intersectional perspective is used for this study. Furthermore, standpoint theory is used as well, to look at these issues from the viewpoint of the marginalized people of the society. Interviews were made with 6 different respondents, who are working for NGOs in and outside of Kathmandu and who through their work are coming on contact with the issues mentioned. My findings show several examples of post-earthquake consequences for women which can be linked to the strong patriarchy, the use of caste system and mistreatment from the government.

    Den identitetsskapande represenationsfrågan : En studie av i 1900-talets represemationsforskning samt resonemang kring en ny möjlig ansats / Från kvinnohistoria till genushistoria : En undersökning av begrepp och teori inom feministisk vetenskapsdiskurs från 1985-19951998Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den identitetskapande representationsfrågan : En studie av 1900-talets representationsforskning samt resonemang kring en nymöjlig ansats Av Staffan Bengtsson.

    ''Den fråga, som nu är föremålet för vår överläggning, är onekligen den viktigaste. som kan förekomma. Den innefattar varken mer eller mindre, än att grundlägga Senska nationens fram tida öden ... "

    Ovanstående ord fälldes av en ledamot i bondeståndet under en riksdag vid mitten av 1800-talet. Vad som åsyftades var frågan kring den politiska representationens karaktär och hur denna skulle vara organiserad under riksdagens sammankomster.

    När frågan slutligen avgjordes på 1860-talet, och den traditionella ståndsindelningen upphörde, upplöstes också den i medeltiden inrättade samhällsbyggnaden. Därmed torde man i likhet med denne talare kunna stämma in i att få frågor har haft så stor historisk betydelse som just kampen kring en förändrad representation.

    Med detta fastslaget växer också funderingarna kring hur denna process har behandlats av forskarna. Har man lyckats täcka in de möjliga ansatser som finns att tillgå för att öka förståelsen kring den komplexitet som omgärdar ett förkastande av ståndssamhället? Utifrån detta tankefundarnent har det således tyckts mig angeläget att i en något vidare undersökning mer kritiskt granska före liggande problematik.

    Syftet med följande studie låter jag tudela. För det förs ta bär undersökningen på en ambition att åstadkomma en historiografisk kartläggning över 1900-talets representationsforskning; med avsikt på forskningsobjekt, perspektiv och drivkrafter. I detta ligger, om än underordnat, även en strävan att utreda huruvida en statsvetares skildring av frågan skiljer sig från en historikers.

    För det andra ska uppsatsen visa på en annorlunda forskningsansats i ämnet. Utifrån den utgångspunkten ska kulturanalysen behandlas för att reda ut huruvida denna vinkling kan vara ett behjälpligt instrument inom representationsforskningen. Som en exemplifiering av en sådan ansats ska slutligen medelklassens föreställningsvärld i representationsfrågans 1800-tal kortfattat belysas.

    I samhällets periferi: om normer och strategier bland hemlösa kvinnor2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 15 points / 22,5 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    D-uppsatsen "I samhällets periferi - om normer och strategier bland hemlösa kvinnor", bygger på en två veckor lång fältstudie genomförd under hösten 2007, på ett daghärbärge för hemlösa och utsatta kvinnor – någonstans i Sverige. Syftet med studien och således med uppsatsen, är att undersöka könsidentitetens betydelse för livet i samhällets periferi. Avsikten är att söka utröna huruvida det finns något samband mellan könsidentitet och klasstillhörighet när det gäller de hemlösa och på andra sätt ”samhälleligt utstötta” kvinnornas subjektskonstruktion.

    Genom det etnografiska språket, skildras i uppsatsen några av alla personliga möten, händelser och situationer som erfors under fältstudien, då den deltagande observationen fungerade som metod för insamling av material. Noga utvalda fältstudieanteckningar tematiseras och analyseras med stöd utifrån queerteoretikern Judith Butlers diskussioner kring samhälleliga normer av manligt, kvinnligt och heterosexualitet samt sociologen Beverly Skeggs erfarenheter av samspelet mellan kön- och klasstillhörighet i konstruktionen av människors subjektivitet.

    I uppsatsen påvisas hur samhälleliga normer och normaliseringsprocesser införlivas hos de individer som av någon anledning befinner sig i samhällets utkant. Tydligt framkommer hur starkt ”könad” människors tillvaro trots allt är - även ute i samhällsperiferin. Den heteronorma samhällssynen påvisas som djupt rotad hos de av studien berörda kvinnorna. Sambandet mellan kön och klass konstateras vara direkt bundet till hur dessa kvinnor uppfattar och presenterar sig själva. Konstruktionen av kön, i form av ”rätt sorts kvinnlighet”, urskiljs som en strategi för att åter vinna omgivningens acceptans. Kvinnornas tydliga strävan efter att, med hjälp av i första hand yttre attribut, kunna leva upp till bilden av en ”respektabel” kvinna synliggörs. Uppsatsanalysen visar även på hur daghärbärgets kvinnliga gäster interpreterar femininiteten som ett verktyg för situationsförändring.

    A Walk on Istiklal Street: Dissident Sexual Geographies, Politics and Citizenship in Istanbul2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Building upon ethnographic material and literature dating from the early 1970s until the 2010s, this thesis is about the production and transformation of dissident sexual geographies through the interplay of sexual politics and citizenship in Beyoğlu and Aksaray, two districts of Istanbul, Turkey. In particular, the interdisciplinary inquiry is composed in the form of a walk on Istiklal Street in Beyoğlu district, historically a central location for cruising activities, finding sexual communities and organising political events among LGBT circles. Throughout, the study focuses on the generational use of three interconnected areas: places, such as gay and transgender bars and clubs (1970s–2010s); politics, such as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) sexual identity politics (1980s–2010s), and virtualities, such as cyberspaces produced through internet and webcam technologies (1990s–2010s).

    As such, this study contributes to the literature in an under-researched area: the academic study of the production and transformation of dissident sexual geographies between the early 1970s and the early 2010s in Istanbul. Furthermore, it advances current debates on contemporary LGBT identity politics in relation to place-making processes and their role in subverting the assumptions of heteronormativity in the Turkish context. Lastly, the empirical material on three interwoven areas (places, politics and virtualities) contributes to theoretical debates on the construction of intimacy and privacy in the Turkish context.

    Abstract [en]

    Making Gender, Making War is a unique interdisciplinary edited collection which explores the social construction of gender, war-making and peacekeeping. It highlights the institutions and processes involved in the making of gender in terms of both men and women, masculinity and femininity. The "war question for feminism" marks a thematic red thread throughout; it is a call to students and scholars of feminism to take seriously and engage with the task of analyzing war. Contributors analyze how war-making is intertwined with the making of gender in a diversity of empirical case studies, organized around four themes: gender, violence and militarism; how the making of gender is connected to a (re)making of the nation through military practices; UN SCR 1325 and gender mainstreaming in institutional practices; and gender subjectivities in the organization of violence, exploring the notion of violent women and non-violent men. -- Book Description.

    Constructing a professional: gendered knowledge in the (self-)positioning of skin and spa therapy students2017In: Gender and Education, ISSN 0954-0253, E-ISSN 1360-0516, Vol. 29, no 7, 890-906 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study outlines the self-positioning of skin and spa therapy students. More specifically, it focuses how they position themselves as professionals in terms of knowledge, and how gender is at play throughout this process. Drawing on a poststructural approach, inspired by Foucault and feminist theory, regularities of description and self-description were analysed. This approach provides analytical tools for analysing how people engage with discourse in this micro-context of education and training, and feminist theory enables an understanding of how gender relations of power emerge. The material consists of interview transcripts derived from interviews with 20 skin and spa therapy students. The study shows how a scientific and caring professional emerges, producing gender relations as effects of power. Furthermore, a caring discourse is ultimately mobilised and a stereotyped image of the beauty industry is shown to govern students self-positioning, reproducing norms of gender and consumption.

    Shaping the female student: an analysis of Swedish beauty school recruitment texts2016In: Studies in Continuing Education, ISSN 0158-037X, E-ISSN 1470-126X, Vol. 38, no 2, 243-258 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the recruitment of adults to the beauty industry in Sweden. It is concerned with a move in (beauty) education away from state and towards private provision in a wider context where education is becoming more heavily marketised. Drawing on a poststructural approach inspired by the work of Foucault and feminist theory, the shaping of student subjectivity in recruitment material for private beauty schools is analysed. A poststructural approach provides analytical tools that make visible the process of how power shapes subjectivities, and the use of feminist theory gives special focus to the gendered aspects of this process. The study includes a textual analysis of website homepages of beauty schools, beauty schools’ Facebook pages and web pages that provide compiled information on educational programs and courses connected to the beauty industry. The analysis shows how consumption is constituted and feminised through specific marketing strategies and thereby becomes both a starting point and a resource for the shaping of student subjectivity. Thus, a particular form of gendered entrepreneurial self is shaped in this femininised educational context, and this study therefore highlights the importance of vocational research that takes into account the shaping of student subjectivity.

    Modiga kvinnor och mesiga män?: Fyra studier om yrkesidentitet och genus2008Student paper second term, 5 points / 7,5 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning: Hur identifierar en individ sig utifrån sitt arbete? Vilken betydelse har kön för yrkesidentiteten? Syftet med denna antologi är att belysa relationen mellan yrkesidentitet och genus utifrån våra informanters uppfattningar om deras yrkestillhörigheter och vad de har för betydelse i deras liv. Teorier om genus, arbete och identitet samt våra etiska reflektioner kring våra respektive fält kommer att beröras. Den analysmetod, Grounded Theory som vi arbetat med för att bearbeta vårt material är också presenterad.Jenny Nilsson ger en inblick i värnpliktigas uppfattningar av försvarsmaktens villkor och dess inflytande på individernas identitetsskapande. Strukturen inom militären är traditionellt mansdominerad, vilken betydelse kan detta ha?Emilie Larsson behandlar yrket förskolelärare, med fokus på minoriteten män. Kapitlet presenterar en diskussion om hur yrket uppfattas av allmänheten samt hur könsrollen upplevs för de yrkesverksamma.Märtha Byfors har studerat män i bibliotekarieyrket där fokus ligger på relation till manlighet inom ramen för arbetsuppgifter och förhållandet till kollegor.Emma Palms analys baseras på samma material som Märtha men med utgångspunkten i stereotypa föreställningar och dess påverkan för individens identitetsskapande.Sammanfattningsvis presenterar vi en avslutande diskussion som binder samman och jämför de olika delarna av studien för att åskådliggöra vilken relevans kön har för yrkesidentiteten.

    Abstract [en]

    In recent years it has become more common to talk about gender equality in public organisations as part of the ambition to modernise the public sector in general. The purpose of the integration of a gender perspective is believed to create a better service for citizens. Also, in the Programme for Gender Mainstreaming, an outspoken ambition has been to "guarantee the quality of publicly financed activities" in order to ensure that the work "meets the conditions ofboth sexes and that high quality and good results are achieved for women, men, girls and boys" (application for fonds to support the gender mainstreaming oflocal authority activities, SALAR and government decision IJ2007/3277/JÄM).

    Abstract [en]

    Gender training is regarded as one of the more central features of gender mainstreaming Gender knowledge is considered necessary for investigating and analysing existing polices and processes and for the integration of a gender perspective. Training for staff and managers affected by the "new" gender mainstreaming policy has also been regarded as essential. Gender knowledge is required in order to understand what and why something should be done and which skills are necessary in order to put the proposed measures in place. Without this knowledge and these skills the process will be in danger of coming to a halt. Knowledge is also considered to minimise the risk of resistance to gender equality objectives. Major training efforts are therefore common in gender mainstreaming initiatives.

    Making equality work: Ambiguities, conflicts and change agents in the implementation of equality policies in public sector organisations2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this study is to contribute to knowledge about the implementation of equality policies in public sector organisations. This is achieved through the development of a theoretical framework of feminist implementation studies. It involves the study of influential factors that impact upon the implementation process, with the aim of contributing to an understanding of the outcome of implementation processes within the equality policy field. The methodology used is based on qualitative case study research combined with a meta-analysis that allows for comparisons across cases. Four initiatives in the implementation of gender mainstreaming strategy were studied in different contexts, namely, two local municipalities and one government agency in Sweden. The main questions asked are: How was gender mainstreaming implemented? What were the main factors influencing the implementation process and why? What was the impact of change actors working to implement gender mainstreaming? The case studies were conducted using an interactive research approach where the different dilemmas encountered by the gender mainstreaming practitioners are used as a starting point for developing a joint learning process. The thesis comprises an introduction and five published papers. The main findings of the study include how the implementation process developed over time and the impact of the micropractices of the “gender mainstreamers” involved. The study provides insights into the factors influencing the implementation process, and how these factors change over time. Different types and levels of conflict, together and interlinked with different ambiguities, affect the practical work where dilemmas inherent in the concepts of “gender”, “equality” and “change” become central. Overall, the study shows how the specific preconditions for implementation of gender mainstreaming make the local arenas of implementation crucial for understanding the outcomes.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses how the actors involved with integrating a gender perspective into mainstream organizational processes have to deal with many difficult-to-solve questions or dilemmas in their everyday work. The strategies used to implement gender mainstreaming rests on various and often contradictory understandings of gender, gender equality and change strategies. The article draws on two case studies in public organizations working with gender mainstreaming where qualitative interviews and reflection- and analysis- and reflection seminars have been conducted with actors involved in the project. The main aim of the article is to discuss an interactive research approach as a way to reflect on various understandings and underlying assumptions that different change strategies are based on. Theoretically the paper uses Michael Billig’s concept of ideological dilemmas as well as theories on gender equality, organizational change and interactive research. A central argument is that contradictions can be problematic if they are ignored but fruitful if used as a starting point for discussions about how future change strategies can be formed. Julia Nentwich’s notion of “playing around” is discussed as a way to reflect and develop strategies based on the specific dilemmas found in the cases studies. Different phases in the interactive approach is described and discussed; the problem orientation phase, the examination phase and the analysis- and reflection phase.

    2012 (English)In: Promoting Innovation: Policies, practices and procedures / [ed] Susanne Andersson, Karin Berglund, Ewa Gunnarsson and Elisabeth Sundin, Stockholm: Vinnova , 2012, 239-269 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes and discusses actions taken to integrate a gender perspective (gender mainstreaming) within the Swedish government agency of VINNOVA. Despite the popularity of gender mainstreaming, its rapid spread and adoption both in Sweden and internationally, it is a largely contested concept. Theorists on gender mainstreaming suggest that the strategy may lead to co-optation with the dominant discourse in an organisation and thus no transformation of the current agenda taking place. Others have argued that it provides a possibility to change by addressing root causes. Previous studies of the implementation of the gender mainstreaming strategy have often been built on analyses on a theoretical or policy level. This chapter takes a different approach by examining the micro-practices developed by actors in public organisations when implementing gender mainstreaming strategies. This is done by examining the roles of both actors and agency. The chapter is based on the results of a case study of the work at VINNOVA; these results are initially described in the article based on the actors’ own accounts of their work. The intriguing “story” of developments in the organisation is followed by a discussion of the micro-practices and strategies in use, based on notions of tempered radicalism (Meyerson and Scully 1995, Meyerson, 2001ab) and small-wins strategies (Weick 1984). The questions of cooptation and subversiveness are problematised through an examination of different strategies of resistance and negotiation (Swan and Fox 2010) used in and around the work. In this context, notions of actors and agency are seen as interlinked, bringing together political intervention and professional and personal positioning (Parsons and Priola 2012) in the practical equality work.

    Abstract [en]

    An important issue in recent years in the gender equality field deals with effects produced by gender equality initiatives. Reports of difficulties such as resistance, obstacles and a lack of resources are common and have occurred for as long as gender equality work has been carried out. Other difficulties which have been highlighted are how gender equality work runs the risk of being reduced to technocratic methods rather than dealing with the content of policies applied (Squires 2007, Walby 2009, Rönnblom 2011). Another related discussion, has dealt with the fact that gender equality initiatives are often runas short-term projects in which good results can be achieved, but where the work ceases when funds run out, thereby limiting the scope for long-term effects (Lindholm 2011). Research hasat the same time shown that gender equality from an historical perspective has brought great progress in many areas of society (Hearn 2012, Walby 2009). This appears to be something of a paradox. Does gender equality development take place parallel with - or in spite of gender equality work? Or is there something in gender equality initiatives that we are unable to capture? In this chapter, on the basis of studies of practical work with gender equality, we wish to present and analyse attempts to solve the complex social problem that gender inequality represents.

    The aim of this chapter is to deepen the reasoning concerning the question of what results and effects we can see from gender equality initiatives, what we cannot see, and the reasons for this. We take as our starting point a study of the work on following up results and effects from gender mainstreaming in an initiative on gender mainstreaming in Swedish municipalities and county councils. Can there be results and effects from gender mainstreaming which are not known, or which co-workers do not understand the importance of the so-called surprising and unexpected effects? We also want to study whether undesired results and effects take place, and how these can be managed.

    Effects from gender mainstreaming2013In: Capturing effects: of projects and programmes / [ed] Lennart Svensson, Göran Brulin, Sven Jansson and Karin Sjöberg, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2013, 1, 199-219 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An important issue in recent years in the gender equality field deals with effects produced by gender equality initiatives. Reports of difficulties such as resistance, obstacles and a lack of resources are common and have occurred for as long as gender equality work has been carried out. Other difficulties which have been highlighted are how gender equality work runs the risk of being reduced to technocratic methods rather than dealing with the content of policies applied (Squires 2007, Walby 2009, Rönnblom 2011). Another related discussion, has dealt with the fact that gender equality initiatives are often runas short-term projects in which good results can be achieved, but where the work ceases when funds run out, thereby limiting the scope for long-term effects (Lindholm 2011). Research hasat the same time shown that gender equality from an historical perspective has brought great progress in many areas of society (Hearn 2012, Walby 2009). This appears to be something of a paradox. Does gender equality development take place parallel with - or in spite of gender equality work? Or is there something in gender equality initiatives that we are unable to capture? In this chapter, on the basis of studies of practical work with gender equality, we wish to present and analyse attempts to solve the complex social problem that gender inequality represents.

    The aim of this chapter is to deepen the reasoning concerning the question of what results and effects we can see from gender equality initiatives, what we cannot see, and the reasons for this. We take as our starting point a study of the work on following up results and effects from gender mainstreaming in an initiative on gender mainstreaming in Swedish municipalities and county councils. Can there be results and effects from gender mainstreaming which are not known, or which co-workers do not understand the importance of the so-called surprising and unexpected effects? We also want to study whether undesired results and effects take place, and how these can be managed.

    "För han kanske inte är mottaglig för det bemötandet som jag är villig att ge och då dör det": en intersektionell studie om möten och bemötanden på en fritidsgård2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen och undersökningen är en observationsstudie på en fritidsgård i Östergötland som handlar om hur fritidseldarna på fritidsgården möter och bemöter ungdomarna på gården ur ett intersektionellt perspektiv och teoretisk grund med fokus på genus, sexualitet, etnicitet, klass och ålder. Syftet med undersökningen är att granska verksamheten och fritidsledarnas arbete under kvällstid och på vilka sätt de skapar positiva samt negativa möten med ungdomarna men undersökningen besvarar även vilka föreställningar som fritidseldarna har kring genus, sexualitet, etnicitet, klass och ålder samt hur de här föreställningarna påverkar de möten som uppstår.

    Abstract [en]

    The question of the human and the nonhuman, how they are produced and inscribed on bodies, has been the subject to a burgeoning amount of research. In this paper I'd like to offer an analysis of what seems to constitute a gap in our theories of the nonhuman, that is the question of dead – radically inert, mute and vulnerable – bodies. By reference to a Greek word sema, which denominated both a ‘tomb’, a ‘sign’ and a ‘trace’, I would like to investigate the three-fold context in which the dead bodies are enmeshed: the material, the discursive and the spectral one. Drawing on the concept of the ‘remnant’ (G. Agamben) and the ‘spectre’ (J. Derrida) I will pose a question regarding the ways in which dead bodies are included in power relations, powers of visibility and normalisation, and how they may challenge them. Finally, I will offer a project of ‘materialistic hauntology’, an ethical stand towards bodies that are in course of dematerialising, but that still matter.

    Defending Unproductivity in Knowmadic Academia2016In: Control - Book of Abstracts, Stockholm University , 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the intersection of problems of labour, capitalism and the body, and situates it in the context of contemporary academia. We will attempt to bring together the “old” (Marxist) and new traditions of materialism in order to re-think the material of the cognitive work. We pose the following questions: What happens to bodies in an increasingly neoliberal academia, which produces precarious, nomadic and, oftentimes, sick bodies (depressed, burned-out, anxious)? What are the ways in which control is being exercised over these bodies? Inspired by the idea of “situated knowledges” we claim that to produce academic discourses on how bodies and lives are kept under control, it is vital to recognize one’s own position (in this case it is a positionlocated within the context of the academia) as a space which is not free from the relations of control, power and violence. We argue that in this particular work environment (i.e. the university) the control over “cognitive labourers” is exercised throughdistribution of anxiety which forces subjects to be productive. We argue that dismantling the productive/unproductive dichotomy could lead to new forms of resistance, solidarity and/or collective action.

    Doing Academia Differently2016In: 21st Century Feminist Praxes, Ontologies and Materialities Conference: Program and Abstract Book, Central European University , 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for this paper is Rosi Braidotti’squestion of “what a body can do and how much a body can take” (2006, p. 129). The paper addresses questions of affectivity, vulnerability, resilience and resistance of the diseased/sick/(dis)abled/depressed body and brings these questions to my/our own backyard: the context of today’s neoliberal, “knowmadic” academia. There seems to be a growing, albeit little-researched and rarely expressed officially, concern about mental health issues being on the rise among academics (see: e.g. Shaw and Ward 2014). I’dlike to pose the following question: what kind of cognitive production, what thought paradigms, knowledges and praxes do sick –depressed, anxious, burned-out –bodies create? Relying on David Harvey’s comment that under capitalism sickness is defined as inability to work (2001, p.106), I wish to search for alternative logics in which, perhaps, “feeling bad might, in fact, be the ground for transformation” (Cvetkovich 2012, p. 3.). That is not to idealize sickness but rather to point to the intertwined nature of the relation between the embodiment and theory, and the body of a researcher and their work (a body of work; institutionalbodies; the sick body...) and look into the productive unproductivity of the “not feeling well”.
