    Femicides in Turkey: Understanding Femicides through the Social, Political, and Gendered Context2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Turkey and its authoritarian policies are in the headlines: the topic of Syrian refugees and the EU – Turkey deal, gross human rights violations, repression against opposition parties, and last but not least the withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention in March 2021. Heavy protests of feminist activist groups are demanding the end of gender-based violence and femicide.Against this background, the thesis investigates the reasons for the rapidly rising number of femicides in Turkey since 2008. It is argued that femicides are not isolated, individualized acts. Rather, they need to be grasped by the present social, political, and gendered context of Turkey. A contextual intersectional analysis is applied to examine the multifaceted and multilayered political phenomenon of femicides.The analysis reveals that femicides are not caused by single-issue factors, but rather by a variety of interlocking determinants such as deeply entrenched gender roles and patriarchal structures, gender-based violence, the regulatory landscape and the creation of political conditions that institutionalize gender hierarchy and violence.The unique contribution of this paper is the adoption of a decolonial view that incorporates a view to the resistance practices embedded into practices of repression and violence.

    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.

    The effects and limits of corporate gender equality standards: A feminist post-structuralist perspective2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Based on my research aim of covering a gap in the literature on corporate gender equality standards, I research the effects and limits of corporate gender equality standards through a feminist poststructuralist perspective using the case study of the EDGE standard. Based on a qualitative research design, I build an analytical framework on Carol Bacchi’s ‘What’s the Problem Represented to be’ (WPR) approach to analyze the material in form of the five assessment areas of the EDGE standard. Based on the feminist post-structuralist perspective, my analysis showcases that the EDGE standard as a governance tool is not guided by tangible ‘problems' that exist ‘out there’ but rather through the representation of ‘problems’ as framed in the EDGE standard. The EDGE standard is thus a productive force that give shape and meaning to various problems of gender inequality which at the same time, the standard is also meant to address. I conclude that in some cases, the EDGE standard can have positive effects. However, the lack of an intersectional approach limits the EDGE standard too. This thesis contributes to the field by closing a research gap in the academic literature on the effects and limits of corporate gender equality standards analyzed through a feminist poststructuralist lens.

    Individual Perceptions of Successful Leadership: An Intersectional Feminist Perspective2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I analysed individual perceptions of successful leadership, from a feminist intersectional persepctive. The study is based on previous research undertaken by Chamorro-Premuzic (2019), where successful leadership has been argued to be based on embodying the characteristics of ‘confidence’, ‘competence’, and ‘emotional intelligence’. This study also investigated whether comprehensions of successful leadership are gendered, and, if so, if the gendered perceptions may be related to the social organisation of care. Furthermore, as gender is always racialised and race is always gendered, this study takes an intersectional approach, analysing perceptions of successful leadership as both racialised and gendered. Based on this, I undertook a case study analysing the words of 11 women in the United States, in order to compare the perspectives of what successful leadership entails for certain individuals in particular, to general perceptions on successful leadership, as well across identity locations. By emphasising individual perspectives on successful leadership, this study allowed for an investigation into gendered and racialised notions regarding successful leadership.

    ..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.

    Be beautiful and speak up: Africana beauty at the forefront of an inclusive Internet beauty culture.2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The beauty industry has been booming in the last few years, generating immense profits as it now translates into an Internet global beauty culture in its own right that finally made room for women of color. As research barely mentions African women and their diasporas, this study aims to critically analyze the dynamic of this North American-dominated Internet beauty culture celebrating non-white women, looking at how it impacts African women and their diasporas and participates in affirming a global woman of color through commodity capitalism. 

    Based on discourse analysis of multiple actors in the industry using popular culture sources, I then conducted a critical feminist autoethnography of my beauty journey, put in perspective with the results of decolonial interviews with African and African diaspora women recruited online. I asked about their relationship with the beauty industry and their opinions on some arguments I made. Self and collective analysis demonstrated the emergence of an African diasporic hybrid beauty culture, empowering women to feel like actors of change.

    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.

    ABOUT "GENDER IDEOLOGY" AND OTHER MYTHS: A decolonial critique of Antigender Discourse in contemporary Argentina2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The antigender discourse emerged in Argentina after the rejection of the bill to decriminalize and legalize abortion in 2018. Due to the lack of material available to conduct a thorough research, they emerged as a group academically unexplored. This thesis aims to fill this gap while studying the discursive strategies and organizational structure of the groups against “gender ideology”. Drawing from contributions of decolonial feminisms and intersectional analyses, this study depicts the intricate context where such groups are situated, recognizing the effects of coloniality permeating their discourse. While contrasting the information collected, through online research and semi-structured interviews, this study aims to dismantle the politics of identity beyond the façade of the antigender cause.

    Viral Voices. Digital storytelling, women and HIV in Podcast Positivos: Mujeres VIHvas project2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Despite being considered as the most social infection, there is little data on HIV infection in women. Women have not been considered beyond their reproductive role as subjects with a sexuality that transcends the historical mandate of biological reproduction, maintaining a secondary role in the infection. At the same time, society seems to have forgotten that the infection is still present.

    This thesis explores the voice of a group of positive women who, with their stories and through the digital narrative, will challenge the discourses that are established as hegemonic. In order to illustrate the potential of new tools as digital storytelling to disrupt and challenge the hegemonic herstory around women with HIV, the starting point for this thesis is Podcast Positivos: Mujeres VIHvas project.

    Engaging with the theories of intersectionality, performativity and cyborg, it will be argued the use of language, voice and the role of listening. Phenomenological research and narrative discourse analysis will be applied as methodologies to, on the one hand, address the experience of HIV as an important dimension in women's lives and, on the other hand, use their stories as a way to understand the meaning of those experiences.

    This thesis also discusses the creation of a cyber self, a viralized voice that is introduced into the already institutionalized podcast platform, to construct, deconstruct and challenge silences. Further, this thesis calls for an effort to listen, feel and write the stories of resistance of positive women and to put them into conversation within feminist academic debates.

    Decolonization, the University, and Transnational Solidarities: A Conversation2023In: Pluriversal Conversations on Transnational Feminisms: And Words Collide from a Place / [ed] Nina Lykke, Redi Koobak, Petra Bakos, Swati Arora, Kharnita Mohamed, London: Routledge, 2023, 1, p. 287-301Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter is an interview conversation with feminist performance studies scholar Swati Arora who shares her thoughts on transnational and decolonial feminisms and epistemes. The conversation draws on Swati’s research on performance cultures, her activist engagements with ”Decolonize the University” movement, and her experiences from her intertwined academic and political trajectory, informed by embodied experiences of inhabiting a multiplicity of different geopolitical locations in the Global South (Delhi and Cape Town) and the Global North (Amsterdam and London). Interweaving Swati’s highly charged descriptions of activist practices and performances with her in-depth theoretical reflections, the interview digs into the ways in which her transnational trajectory and overlapping situatednesses have made her very aware of epistemic differences, erasures, and the urgent need for deploying the tricksterous feminist practice of translations as a point of departure for pluriversal dialogues, and a conscious move away from monologic universality. In the interview, Swati shares insights from her forthcoming book on performance cultures in Delhi, a manifesto she wrote to decentre Theatre and Performance Studies, and her research on a feminist performance Walk by the Indian performer and playwright Maya Rao, which engaged with translation as an act of transnational solidarity in highly complex ways.

    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, p. 57-64Conference 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.

    Technology in children’s picture books as an agent for reinforcing or challenging traditional gender stereotypes2021In: International journal of technology and design education, ISSN 0957-7572, E-ISSN 1573-1804, Vol. 31, p. 27-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Technology is a field with strong connections to the female/male dichotomy. Children start to stereotype everyday life regarding this dichotomy as early as the age of two. The preschool, through its activities—among them reading aloud from picture books—is an arena where societal norms can be either preserved or challenged. Books about different artefacts, e.g. cars, airplanes and boats, often serve as an introduction for children about the human application of technology and may influence how they identify and categorise the technology they encounter in everyday life. The aim of this study was to investigate the technological content in a selection of picture books from a gender perspective. Since preschools in Sweden often use books from libraries in their daily activities, the empirical material was derived from the library sections Facts for youngsters and Technology for youngsters, aimed at children aged 1–3 and 3–6. A thematic analysis was used to discover the dominant themes within the books. The results show that there is a focus on how separate artefacts function but no detailed explanation of how these artefacts are connected or what kind of implications they have in a societal context. There also seems to be an emphasis on traditionally masculine coded technology.

    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we use the competing narratives and performances of four guided walks as the basis for a discussion of heritage in the intersection of gender, sexuality and class in the urban landscape of Norrköping, Sweden. Three of the walks focus on the life of straight, white, working-class women, while one offers a lesbian narrative thus disrupting the other walks. All the walks dealt with are part of recent projects to render female experiences visible so as to connect to current agendas and include them in the heritage for the future. They also testify to the difficulties of incorporating social complexity and intersectionality in heritage productions such as city walks.

    Preferences for Gender Affirming Treatment and Associated Factors Among Transgender People in Sweden2023In: Sexuality Research & Social Policy, ISSN 1868-9884, E-ISSN 1553-6610, Vol. 20, p. 479-490Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction Gender affirming surgery of primary and/or secondary sex characteristics has been shown to alleviate gender dysphoria. A descriptive snapshot of current treatment preferences is useful to understand the needs of the transgender population seeking health care. This study aimed to describe preferences for gender affirming treatment, and their correlates, among individuals seeking health care for gender dysphoria in Sweden after major national legislative reforms. Methods Cross-sectional study where transgender patients (n = 232) recruited from all six Gender Dysphoria centers in Sweden 2016-2019, answered a survey on treatment preferences and sociodemographic, health, and gender identity-related information during the same time-period. Factors associated with preferring top surgery (breast augmentation or mastectomy), genital surgery, and other surgery (e.g., facial surgery) were examined in univariable and multivariable regression analyses in the 197 people without prior such treatment. Main study outcomes were preferences for feminizing or masculinizing hormonal and surgical gender affirming treatment. Results The proportion among birth assigned male and assigned female patients preferring top surgery was 55.6% and 88.7%, genital surgery 88.9% and 65.7%, and other surgery (e.g., facial surgery) 85.6% and 22.5%, respectively. Almost all participants (99.1%) wanted or had already received hormonal treatment and most (96.7%) wished for some kind of surgical treatment; 55.0% wanted both top and genital surgery. Preferring a binary pronoun (he/she) and factors indicating more severe gender incongruence were associated with a greater wish for surgical treatment. Participants with somatic comorbidities were less likely to want genital surgery, while aF with lacking social support were less likely to want internal genital surgery, in the multivariable analyses. Conclusions In this sample of Swedish young adults seeking health care for gender dysphoria, preferences for treatment options varied according to perceived gender identity. Policy Implications The study findings underline the need for individualized care and flexible gender affirming treatment options. The role of somatic comorbidities should be further explored, and support should be offered to transgender people in need. There is an unmet need for facial surgery among aM.

    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, p. 37-52Chapter 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.

    Feminist Commons. : Decoloniality, Intersectionality and the Commons2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My thesis is a call for the need of an intersectional awareness in the field of the commons, or the common or commoning. For that reason, I focus on a rather undertheorized subfield, the feminist commons because I deem that it promotes a more intersectional perspective than the male-dominated commons. My main effort concentrates to argue for the potentialities of an intersection between the commons and (feminist) decolonial project. Notions such as coloniality of power, the principle of intersectionality and the ethos of decoloniality help me to build my argument step by step. The thesis does not provide answers rather it poses questions and tries to open space for a fruitful experimentation.

    Care and Confusion: A Speculative Ethnography of Youth Residential Care Homes in Sweden2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Through the small-scale and imaginative application of a Speculative Institutional Ethnographical study, fictionalised stories have been created based upon observations in the field at three different Youth Care Home Facilities in Sweden. The locations and characters in these stories are composite narratives comprised of actual details from multiple real life places and people, amalgamated to form fictionalised narratives so as to protect the anonymity of real life people. The researcher’s primary motivation with the research is to develop a better understanding of the way in which individual differences between staff members working at these facilities impact their decision making in an environment which is supposedly value-neutral. It is argued that a multitude of factors will influence staff members perceptions of youths at these homes and that a degree of bias or partiality is unavoidable. An awareness of this and a development of critical reflexivity is encouraged. Through drawing data from real life observations in the field to create credible, realistic fictionalised stories, the research project is combining academic and creative writing processes in an innovative and progressive way. The goal of the research is not to prove or disprove a specific hypothesis but rather to explore an issue and develop a better understanding of the complexity and nuances of working at a Youth Care Home facility in view of Intersectional Gender Studies.

    On Developments in Ethnographic Research: The Case of Two Swedish Universities2022In: International Journal of Qualitative Methods, E-ISSN 1609-4069, Vol. 21, article id 16094069221084432Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The past 40 years have formed a transitional period in Swedens education and political history. The social democratic reforms from the 1940s that aimed to create a centralised, expanded and integrated comprehensive education system came to an end. Decentralisation, neoliberal governance and the introduction of new public management with the creation of private schools and competition have shaped the policy regime since then. Ethnography emerged in Swedish educational research as a significant research methodology during this transitional period. Using a qualitative and quantitative investigation of research dissertations that classified and counted the use of ethnography as either classical (using core references and long-term participation research at one or a limited number of sites), or adapted (used within adaptations to other research methods), the present article explores these developments at two universities. It suggests that Swedish education ethnography has developed along similar kinds of historical trajectories to ethnography in other places, with roots similar to those in other European countries, though also with some variations. For instance, as elsewhere, ethnography needed a breakthrough point in Swedish education research. It got this in the 1980s. However, it quickly became an important part of educational research from the 1990s onwards and a strong quantitative take off early in the new millennium followed. Presently more than half of all PhD dissertations in Education at the two universities have some kind of participant observation, over half of which are also classically ethnographic. This leads us to conclude that education ethnography in Sweden has changed across its period of growth and that though configured in contemporary social science as having originated in anthropology as a methodology that employed long-term embedded participant observation, this does not limit the variations of ethnographys development or its application.

    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.

    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.

    Womens entrepreneurship, neoliberalism and economic justice in the postfeminist era: A discourse analysis of policy change in Sweden2018In: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 25, no 5, p. 531-556Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the early 1990s, there has been investment in womens entrepreneurship policy (WEP) in Sweden, which continued until 2015. During the same period, Sweden assumed neoliberal policies that profoundly changed the position of women within the world of work and business. The goals for WEP changed as a result, from entrepreneurship as a way to create a more equal society, to the goal of unleashing womens entrepreneurial potential so they can contribute to economic growth. To better understand this shift we approach WEP as a neoliberal governmentality which offers women entrepreneurial or postfeminist subject positions. The analysis is inspired by political theorist Nancy Fraser who theorized the change as the displacement of socioeconomic redistribution in favour of cultural recognition, or identity politics. We use Frasers concepts in a discourse analysis of Swedish WEP over two decades, identifying two distinct discourses and three discursive displacements. Whilst WEP initially gave precedence to a radical feminist discourse that called for womens collective action, this was replaced by a postfeminist neoliberal discourse that encouraged individual women to assume an entrepreneurial persona, start their own business, compete in the marketplace and contribute to economic growth. The result was the continued subordination of women business owners, but it also obscured or rendered structural problems/solutions, and collective feminist action, irrelevant.

    Assigned Gender Before Birth: A Critical Discourse Analysis of Desires, Identities, and Ideologies in Online Discussions of Non-medical Sex Selection2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Human reproduction is increasingly commodified, which paves the way for reproductive

    enhancement rather than just assistance. Non-medical gender/sex selection is one of the

    reproductive enhancement services that is offered on the fertility market, and it is a

    practice that raises severe concerns regarding the social and political impact of

    biotechnologies. Through Critical Discourse Analysis and Biomedicalization theory, I

    analyse how non-medical gender/sex selection is legitimised in online forum discussions.

    I argue that gender/sex selection is legitimized through gender- and family-conservative

    and neoliberal ideologies, and that gender/sex selection can be understood as a tool to

    enhance the family, increase privilege, and attain hypernormativity.

    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.

    Sextortion: Corruption Shaped by Gender Norms2022In: Norms, Gender and Corruption: Understanding the Nexus / [ed] Ina Kubbe, Ortrun Merkle, Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing , 2022, p. 252-267Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on the dynamics of corruption has increasingly investigated the relevance of a gender perspective for understanding the driving forces, manifestations, and consequences of corrupt transactions. Yet, until recently, it has rarely considered sexual services as a currency in the corrupt transaction. When border officials ask womenmigrants to pay with their bodies when they want to cross a border, it is as corrupt asasking for any other bribe in exchange. Teachers asking pupils to perform sexual services in exchange for grades abuse their entrusted authority every bit as much as if they would ask for money. When managers hand out positions, jobs, or contracts to women whohave sex with them, it is as much neglect of meritocratic principles as a nepotistic appointment would be.

    This chapter focuses on the type of corruption where the transactional currency is some form of sexual service. This form of corruption, where entrusted authority is abused inorder to obtain sex in exchange for a service or benefit, is called sextortion (IAWJ, 2012; Eldén et al., 2020).

    The chapter theorizes and conceptualizes sextortion as a form of corruption. It then asks the question of how the fact that the currency is sex, and not something else (e.g. money), changes the dynamics of the transaction and our understanding of corruption. Sextortion should be recognized as a form of corruption, but it also needs to be understood as something more than that. We conceptualize sextortion as an abuse of power that has elements of both corruption and gender-based violence, and which cannot be analyzed without incorporating both. In this chapter, we illustrate what sextortion is,and how gender norms act as drivers and enablers.

    "Det sitter i väggarna": En interpretativ fenomenologisk studie om kvinnliga produktionschefers upplevelser beträffande kön och organisationskultur i en mansdominerad gruva2019Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien syftade till att, på LKAB, undersöka huruvida kön i ett organisatoriskt sammanhang var av betydelse samt hur organisationskulturen återspeglades i detta. Studien antog ett interpretativt förhållningssätt beträffande sju kvinnliga produktionschefers upplevelser och en kvalitativ forskningsdesign applicerades således.

    Resultatet påvisade att kön är av betydelse på LKAB, vilket grundade sig i upplevelser som berörde att kvinnor behöver prestera högre än män för att bli accepterade i arbetsrelaterade nätverk, samt att kvinnor ges fördelar med hänsyn till sitt kön. Det framkom även att organisationskulturen till viss del präglas av hur den varit tidigare, när det förekom en destruktiv jargong som skapades utifrån vad som ansågs vara maskulina intressen. Informanterna relaterade den nuvarande organisationskulturen till ett trivsamt arbetsklimat, men påpekade att den gamla tidens kultur är svårföränderlig. Det indikerades att det är lång väg kvar till en brytningspunkt och att både ledning och medarbetare bör vara engagerade i förändringen.

    Att bota en prostata: Kastrering som behandlingsmetod för prostatahypertrofi 1893-19102019Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Avhandlingen behandlar den korta men intensiva perioden 1893–1910 då kastrering användes som behandlingsmetod för att bota prostatahypertrofi. Fokus för analysen är hur prostatan, prostatahypertrofi och testiklarna skapades som medicinska kunskapsobjekt. Studien undersöker även hur jämförelser med andra kroppar – kvinnor, djur, män som avvek från normen med två fungerande testiklar – än den ”normala” manliga kroppen var en viktig del av kunskapsproduktionen av dessa kunskapsobjekt. Analytiskt används främst begreppen agentiell realism, agentiella snitt och vetenskapligt historieberättande. Som ett komplement används även begreppen spektrum och spektrum av avlivningsbarhet för analysen av hur djurs kroppar användes inom medicinen. Analysen visar att andra kroppar än den manliga var viktig för kunskapsproduktionen och att manlig kastrering inte undveks i så stor utsträckning som tidigare forskning har menat. Den kvinnliga kroppen fick även till viss del fungera som ”facit” när det saknades kunskap om den manliga. Analysen visar dessutom att en intra-aktion mellan teori, experiment och klinisk erfarenhet var viktig i den medicinska kunskapsproduktionen.
