    Between Fire and Ice: Experiences of the Persian Fire Festival in a Nordic Setting2020In: Sustainability, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 12, no 24, article id 10374Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This exploratory research seeks to gain insight into the visitors of Persian Fire Festival in Stockholm, their motivation, level of satisfaction and loyalty to the festival. The overall methodology is mixed methods consisting of participant observation and 280 completed online surveys including close-ended and open-ended questions. A Grounded theory analysis has been employed. The most important reason behind the participation has been to strive for the recognition of ethnic cultural identity; to keep the ancient culture alive; to maintain their ancestors legacy and transfer it to the next generation. Most of the visitors experienced positive feelings, showed satisfaction and loyalty, believed that the festival fulfilled their expectations and it should be celebrated officially every year. A minority showed dissatisfaction mostly due to the lack of accessibility to the event venue and might are not loyal to the festival. The first conclusion here is that these motivators are totally different than those mentioned by earlier research (e.g., escape, socialization, novelty, rest, prestige, excitement). Even though the desire to preserve the ancient culture and tradition is very strong, a lack of accessibility to the venue would constitute disloyalty and a barrier to re-attend in such a festival.

    Introduktion till etnografiskt fältarbete2019Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett etnografiskt fältarbete handlar om möten. Möten med nya människor, nya sammanhang och nya insikter. Det kan vara både spännande och krävande, och för att lyckas behövs noggrann planering och genomtänkta metoder. Med utgångspunkt i personliga erfarenheter diskuterar författaren allt från praktiskt upplägg för studien och etiska perspektiv till analysarbetet och konkreta skrivråd.

    Boken är organiserad i fem kapitel som beskriver hela forskningsprocessen – före, under och efter fältarbetet:

    Planering, handlar till stor del om hur ett fältarbete kan struktureras i tid och plats.

    I fält, tar upp det etnografiska fältarbetets två vanligaste metoder: observation och intervju.

    Andra metoder, är en genomgång av några andra metoder, t.ex. enkäter, skuggning, fokusgrupper, dagböcker med mera.

    Det analytiska stadiet, beskriver hur etnografiska fältdata kan analyseras utifrån grundad teori.

    Vid skrivbordet, ger förslag på två modeller som kan användas när resultaten från det etnografiska fältarbetet ska sammanställas. Här berörs även referenssystem m.m.

    ‘Collaborative Competition’: Stance-taking and Positioning in the European Parliament2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The European Parliament (EP) is the scene where certain issues concerning over 500 million ‘Europeans’ are publicly debated and where politically relevant groupings are discursively coconstructed. While the Members of the Parliament (MEPs) pursue their political agendas, intergroup boundaries are drawn, reinforced, and/or transgressed. Speakers constantly take stances on behalf of groupings in relation to some presupposed other groupings and argue what differentiates ‘Self’ from ‘Others’. This study examines patterns of language use by the MEPs as they engage in the contextually and historically situated dialogical processes of intergroup positioning and stance-taking. It further focuses on the strategic and competitive activities of grouping, grounding, and alignment in order to reveal the dynamic construction of intergroup boundaries.

    The study is based on a collection of Blue-card question-answer sequences from the plenary debates held at the EP in 2011, when the Sovereign Debt Crisis had been stabilized to some degree but still evoked plenty of controversy.

    Theoretically the study builds on Stance Theory (Du Bois, 2007), Positioning Theory (Davies & Harré, 1990), and several broadly social constructivist approaches to discourse analysis (Fairclough, 1995).

    The analysis shows that intergroup positioning in the EP emerges as what I call a ‘collaborative competition’ between contradictory ideologies and political agendas. The MEPs strategically manipulate their opponents' prior or projected utterances in order to set up positions for self, a grouping he or she stands for, and thereby its adversaries. All participants engage in the maintenance and negotiation of intergroup boundaries, even though the boundaries hardly ever coincide between the different speakers. They discursively fence off some imaginary territories, leaving their adversaries with vague positions.

    When asking Blue-card questions, the MEPs use a particular turn organization, which involves routine forms of interactional units, namely addressing, question framing and question forms, each of which is shown to contribute to stance-taking. A dynamic model of stance-taking is suggested, allowing for a fluid transformation of the stance object as well as the discursively constructed stance-takers.

    While Blue-card questions are meant to serve as a structured procedure for eliciting information from a speaker, the analysis demonstrates that the MEPs accomplish various divergent actions that serve intergroup positioning. The dissertation thus contributes to the understanding of the discursive games played in the EP as the MEPs strive to construct social realities that fit their political ends.

    Managing critical incidents in grocery shopping by community-living people with Alzheimer's disease.2013In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 4, no 20, p. 292-301Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: People with Alzheimer's disease (AD) remain in their ordinary housing and continue to use public space despite increasing disabilities. The aim of this study was to discover and describe problematic situations and critical incidents that took place when people with AD performed the ordinary outside-home activity of grocery shopping and how these were met by them. Methods: Individual interviews (n = 12) and participant observations (n = 8) with six informants were performed and analysed using a grounded theory approach. Results: The findings are presented in six categories and each category describes different critical incidents and actions used to meet these. The categories were: (a) Remembering to bring things when leaving home, (b) Finding the way to and from the grocery shop without getting lost, (c) Finding a way through traffic when not feeling safe, (d) Finding objects when organization is disrupted, (e) Choosing when a lot of objects and products are available, and (f) Finding a method to pay when payment opportunities are restricted. The core category, “A challenging and unstable process of meeting critical incidents in grocery shopping”, was characterised by reflections and creativity to achieve relative harmony in each critical incident. Conclusions: In conclusion, it is important that relatives and professionals take into account relevant actions to help people with AD coordinate with their environment.Read More: http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/11038128.2012.752031

    Jag är etrusk: Lokal identitet i tre närliggande städer i dagens Etrurien2017In: Romhorisont, ISSN 0349-5590, no 66, p. 18-20Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag är etrusk, sa en medelålders man när han presenterade sig för mig. Jag hade just kommit till Tarquinia för ett antropologiskt fältarbete och detta sätt att presentera sig väckte min nyfikenhet. Sedan tidigare var jag väl bekant med städerna Blera och Cervteri, som liksom Tarquinia ligger norr om Rom i den delen av Italien som för mer än två tusen år sedan utgjorde etruskernas rike, men aldrig hade jag hört någon uttrycka sin identitet på detta sätt.  Det skulle dock visa sig att den här mannen var bara den första i raden av Tarquiniabor som jag mötte som uttryckte sin identitet genom att kalla sig etrusk. I det följande kommer jag att visa hur det görs och jämföra det med situationen i Blera och Cerveteri samt ge en möjlig förklaring till de skillnader städerna emellan som jag kunnat notera.

    Neighbourhoods as relational places for people living with dementia2020In: Social Science and Medicine, ISSN 0277-9536, E-ISSN 1873-5347, Vol. 252Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An increase in the number of people living independently with dementia across the developed world has focused attention on the relevance of neighbourhood spaces for enabling or facilitating good social health and wellbeing. Taking the lived experiences and daily realities of people living with dementia as a starting point, this paper contributes new understanding about the relevance of local places for supporting those living with the condition. The paper outlines findings from a study of the neighbourhood experiences, drawing on new data collected from a creative blend of qualitatively-driven mixed methods with people living in a diverse array of settings across three international settings. The paper details some of the implications of neighbourhoods as sites of social connection based on material from 67 people living with dementia and 62 nominated care-partners. It demonstrates how neighbourhoods are experienced as relational places and considers how people living with dementia contribute to the production of such places through engagement and interaction, and in ways that may be beneficial to social health. We contend that research has rarely focused on the subjective, experiential and ‘everyday’ social practices that contextualise neighbourhood life for people living with dementia. In doing so, the paper extends empirical and conceptual understanding of the relevance of neighbourhoods as relational sites of connection, interaction, and social engagement for people living with dementia.

    Enacting sustainability through glass: a study of ontological politics in the proclaimed role model neighbourhood of Vallastaden2023In: Cultural Geographies, ISSN 1474-4740, E-ISSN 1477-0881, Vol. 30, no 3, p. 391-411Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how sustainability is made present and visible in the life of residents in a new neighbourhood. Glass is enacted by design professionals and a Swedish municipality to create spaces for residents that fulfil sustainability objectives and put daily life on display. However, some practises developed by residents resist the intended uses of these spaces. Through a detailed case study of the proclaimed new role model neighbourhood of Vallastaden in Linkoping, Sweden, we critically investigate the ontological politics of the residents everyday life, including their social life with neighbours, low-energy living, interactions with local small businesses, recycling habits and mobility habits. By attending to glass, we show how humans, non-humans, materials and technologies become part of everyday practises and help uncover the ontological politics of mundane life.

    Skrivet i stickningen: Om social status i stickbeskrivningar från 1838 till 18452018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen undersökte handstickningens sociala status under åren 1838–1845 via stickhandböcker som publicerades kring de brittiska öarna under den nämnda tiden. Studien har genomförts med en kvalitativ textanalys av totalt 5 olika stickböcker och författare. Syftet var att utröna stickningens sociala status med hjälp av stickböckernas tilltänkta målgrupp, författarnas egna noteringar om stickningen, stickbeskrivningarnas inriktning och materialanvändningen för framförandet av stickbeskrivningarna. Resultatet blev att handböckerna riktade sig till de övre klasserna av samhället och framförallt var målgruppen för böckerna kvinnor. Materialanvändningen i handböckerna visade till största del på exklusiva material och stickbeskrivningar var ofta dekorativa. Stickningen blev klassat högt i status under tiden, inom den kvinnliga sfären, då utförandet av tekniken sågs som en fritidssysselsättning och ansågs som ett värdigt utförande för damer.

    A Conversation on AI, Science Fiction, and Work2021In: Fafnir: Nordic Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy Research, E-ISSN 2342-2009, ISSN 2342-2009, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 54-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Karl-Heinz Steinmüller once remarked that SF “has become a unique medium for discussing science and technology, their prospects and hazards, and more generally their social and cultural impacts” (339). In this sense, SF as a genre forms a bridge between science/technology and the public, and is a vital aspect of public engagement with issues arising from scientific development. One such technological subject today is the development of artificial intelligence (AI) research.

    At the same time, there is a growing concern that representations of AI in recent SF and popular media are misleading (Goode; Graeber). In this article, ethnologist Daniel Bodén and cultural studies researcher Michael Godhe discuss AI in the light of the future of work with Jerry Määttä, one of the foremost SF scholars in Scandinavia.

    Beröringspraktiker i sexuella narrativ: Reflektioner kring ett påbörjat fältarbete om sexuella känslor och njutning2013In: Tidskrift för genusvetenskap TGV, ISSN 1654-5443, no 4, p. 7-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I investigate how tactile practicies appear in sexual narratives among trans persons and women in an ongoing ethnographic study on sexual feelings. I explore the political subjectivity of the sexual story, and how it is entangled or detached from mainstream imaginary of sex. Aiming at rerouting touch as categorically reconstructing bodily shapes, I highlight the dynamics between the sensational, emotional, material and social representations. Influenced by feminist and queer writers such as Luce Irigaray, Susan Stryker, Eve Sedgewick and Sara Ahmed I turn to the sexual narratives of how touch would revamp the mainstream discourses of an embodied sexual self.

    Blickar på kunskap: diskursteoretiska ingångar till en multimodal analysmetod av hur gymnasieprogram gestaltas på webben2022In: Teori som metod / [ed] Bo Nilsson & Alf Arvidsson, Umeå: Institutionen för kultur- och medievetenskaper, Umeå universitet , 2022, p. 49-63Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I detta kapitel argumenterar jag för att text och bild kan förstås som olika men visuellt sammanhängande modaliteter som i många avseenden befäster eller fungerar som komplement till varandra. Det språk med vilket vi tillskriver världen vissa betydelser kännetecknas av dess multimodalitet (Matthiessen, 2007). Begreppet multimodalitet belyser mångfalden av de modaliteter varigenom vi kommunicerar och därmed realiserar de innehållsmässiga innebörderna av ett visst uttryck. Med andra ord menar jag att den uttrycksmässiga formen också har potential att avgöra den innehållsmässiga karaktären av ett budskap – åtminstone om man även följer medieteoretikern Marshall McLuhans (1964) klassiska devis: Mediet är lika med budskapet. Detta kan ses som ett första multimodalt antagande, att formen spelar stor roll för vilken typ av budskap som förmedlas. Utan att för den delen anta en deterministisk eller icke-diskursiv position, menar jag att det finns en poäng i att inte enbart utgå från innehållet utan också hur det framställs. Själva paketeringen eller hur ett budskap framförs är inte oviktigt utan en avgörande del av hur vi numera exponeras för olika slags medierat eller via olika medier förmedlat innehåll. Medieringen är det innehållsligas form eller framförande. Hur ett innehåll framförs är en högst klassisk fråga om hur vi bäst når ut med ett budskap för att övertyga om dess väsentlighet.

    Fleshing out the self: Reimagining intersexed and trans embodied lives through (auto)biographical accounts of the past2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores how current ways of imagining possibilities for intersexed and trans embodied lives within medical contexts might be informed by and reimagined through the historical lived experiences of intersexed and trans individuals as they have been articulated in autobiographical accounts.

    Postmodern, queer, intersex, and trans researchers and activists have criticised existing standards of intersex and trans healthcare for limiting the possibilities for diverse embodied lives by articulating certain forms of embodiment and selfhood as more likely to enable a liveable life than others. This has often been done in a medico-legal context by referring to experiences in the past of the unliveability of corporealities and gendersexed situations that differ from privileged positions. With a point of departure in these critiques, this thesis reopens questions about how intersexed and trans people may be embodied and have relations with others by reflecting upon the period of the first three-quarters of the 20th century, when the present standards of care and diagnostic categories were emerging, but had not yet become established.

    Drawing upon a unique set of historical source material from the archives of the Danish Ministry of Justice and the Medico-Legal Council, intersexed and trans persons’ life stories are rearticulated from their own and medico-legal experts’ accounts written in relation to applications for change of legal gendersex status and medical transition. In this way, the process is traced through which these life stories have been repeatedly rearticulated in order to become a usable basis for diagnosis and decision-making. At the same time, the stories are unfolded once more in a rearticulation focusing on their complexity and diversity.

    Uppfostran till medborgare i en total institution. En etnografisk studie om regelsystem på en institution för vård av unga2003Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen handlar om regelsystem i en institution för vård av unga. Syftet med uppsatsen är att ge en ökad förståelse för och få kunskap om behandling samt skolverksamhet på en institution för ungdomar med fokus på regelsystem, regelöverträdelser och personalens bemötande av dessa. Uppsatsen är etnografisk och resultatet bygger på en två veckor lång observationsperiod på en institution för vård av unga. Teorin bygger på Goffmans bok Totala institutioner- fyra essäer om anstaltslivets sociala villkor. Goffman menar att en total institution kännetecknas av inneslutande tendenser, dessa har jag försökt att applicera på resultatet. I resultatet visas till exempel att institutionen Skogbys regelsystem är centrala i verksamheten och att regelöverträdelserna beivras med hjälp av utebliven belöning.

    Scoresbysundhistorier: Fotografier, kolonisering og kortlaeggning2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Mitt på Grönlands ostkust ligger Scoresbysund. Platsen koloniserades 1924 av en handfull danskar och befolkades med 100 grönlänningar från Angmagssalik, däribland Pia Arkes morfar och mormor. Trakten är en av världens mest isolerade och befolkningen idag helt beroende av omvärldens insatser.När Arke 1997 efter 35 år återvände till sin födelseort ställdes hon inför ett gåtfullt underskott på historiskt medvetande. Ortsborna talade ogärna om den första generationens vedermödor, och samhället saknade historisk dokumentation. Det fick Arke att spåra upp ortens historia ? i bildarkiv, avhandlingar, dagböcker och fotoalbum; på vindar och i källare; i Köpenhamn, Paris, New York, Oslo och Stockholm. Resultatet blev Scoresbysundshistorier, en bok som i text och bild går i personlig närkamp med de skandinaviska staternas koloniala historia, men som också är fylld av kärlek till de människor som historien placerat i Europas utkant.Arkes material kompletteras av förord och kartografiska miniessäer skrivna av Stefan Jonsson.?Genom sitt porträtt av en av jordens minsta och mest förbisedda orter lyckades hon vända upp och ned på en världsordning. Bättre sagt: hon lyckades vända världen rätt.? (ur Stefan Jonssons nyskrivna förord)"Scoresbysundshistorier är konst och textaktivism på en samtidigt teoretiskt avancerad och jordnära nivå. [...] Fragment som fogas samman och omkastar perspektiven, framkallar ett mönster som effektivt förvrider den förvanskande koloniala historieskrivningen. Och det med ett tonfall genomgående präglat av en stillsam kompromisslöshet. Vilket ger mycket vackra texter, i vissa stunder lysande som små solar."(Aftonbladet)

    Writing touch, writing (epistemic) vulnerability2024In: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 264-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Touch mediates relations between self-other, writers, and readers; it is material and affective. This paper is the outcome of writing touch as a collaborative activity between eight women writers across different times and locals. In sharing experiences of touch during and beyond the pandemic, we engage with collaborative writing articulated here as colligere, involving the assembling of writing in a holding space. The meanings and feelings of touch arise from our distinct writer positionalities as we think, work, and write in and about life, research, organizations, and organizing. We suggest that writing that reflects on/through touch presents epistemic vulnerability and openness to unknowing in the nexus of intercorporeal relationships. Writing touch contributes to writing and doing academia differently, particularly by offering sensorial encounters that reframe the ethico-political conditions of academic knowledge creation.

    Looking into the Identity of Korean Transnational Adoptees in Sweden: Pivoting on the Correlation between Microaggression and Racialization Experience in the Daily Life2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Diplomatic relations between Sweden and South Korea enabled international adoption. It progressed mostly between the 1960s and the 1980s. Concerning the aim for both countries, Sweden needed clear-cut and positive evidence to demonstrate the following social change: From race biology to multiculturalism. South Korea needed the foreign capital for national development. Adoptees were adopted without any appropriate support and deprivation of self determination, and they had to situate the discrimination and identity problem in Swedish society because of the absence of whiteness. This study is not only unpacking problems of identity for Korean transnational adoptees in Sweden but also deducing meaningful outcomes by looking into their stories through an in-depth interview.

    Behavioural effects of food deprivation on red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) and White Leghorn layers2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine how food deprivation effects food-related and other behavioural systems of red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) and the domesticated White Leghorn layers. If an animal is denied to perform their natural behaviours, like eating, sleeping or preening, the motivation for the behaviour can increase. Behavioural systems may interact and motivation to perform behaviours may be influenced. After being deprived of a certain need the reaction can become exaggerated or abnormal. Food deprivation is often used in ethology research to motivate animals. The hypothesis in this study was that the chickens would become affected by the food deprivation and reallocate their behaviours. They would get more stressed and frustrated. Domestication effects and sex differences were explored. The birds were tested in four standardized behavioural tests; food consumption test, general behavioural test, open field test and novel object test. The results showed that they foraged and explored more, had less comfort behaviours, and less perching the longer they had been without food. They did not show a higher degree of frustration, stress or aggressive behaviours. There were domestication effects, where the Leghorns seem to have lost some of their ability to respond adaptively to food shortage. Differences between the sexes were found, where the females foraged more and the males were more stressed. The conclusion was that the birds do not get more stressed when food deprived, but they forage and explore more which is a desirable effect of food deprivation used in ethology research.

    Domestication effects on foraging behaviour: consequences for adaptability in chickens2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main aim of this thesis was to study domestication effects on foraging behaviour in chickens and to investigate whether and how domestication and selection for high production have influenced adaptability in chickens. Two domestic strains of chickens (egg layers and meat type chickens) and their wild ancestor, the red jungle fowl (RJF) were compared in different test situations with respect to foraging behaviour and adaptability. The domestic strains showed a modified foraging strategy, where they were less inclined to explore and feed from a hidden food source, i.e. they showed less contrafreeloading (CFL, the behaviour of working for food even though identical food can be easily obtained) than RJF. The difference in CFL between RJF and the layers were not altered by food deprivation, which suggests that the lower CFL in the layers represents a genetically based difference in feeding strategy. In addition, CFL decreased with age in RJF and layers and social isolation decreased CFL in RJF. Furthermore, when foraging, RJF acquired information about the quality of different food sources, which was utilised after a change in environmental conditions. Contrary to this, layers gained less information during foraging and showed an impaired spatial learning ability compared to RJF, and in this respect, layers showed a lower degree of adaptability. Chronic stress impaired the learning capacity of both breeds but RJF seemed to be overall faster to learn to locate food in a spatial learning task. Furthermore, stressed RJF started to eat faster in the spatial learning test than non-stressed RJF, and contrary to this, stressed layers showed a more passive response by prolonging the time to start feeding compared to non-stressed layers. This indicates a more active response to stress in RJF than in layers. Similarly, when RJF and layers were exposed to food deprivation, RJF showed an active response by increasing their time spent on foraging behaviour. The general results in this thesis most likely reflect different adaptive strategies, where RJF appear to be better adapted to a stochastic environment, and the domestic strains to grow and produce egg in a more predictable environment. The findings are in accordance with the resource allocation theory, which suggests that animals selected for high production are expected to reallocate a high proportion of resources into production traits and hence fewer resources might be left to other biological processes, e.g. exploratory behaviour. Selection for high production seems to influence the ability of chickens to cope with a changing environment, which may have implications for the welfare of chickens in a production environment.

    Abstract [en]

    Contrafreeloading (CFL), i.e. choosing food which requires work over free food, occurs at a higher rate in red jungle fowl (Gallus gallus) compared to White Leghorn layers. We examined whether this difference between breeds was altered by food deprivation and whether it affected the information gained about alternative food sources. In a first experiment, twenty birds of each breed were deprived for zero, three and six hours and then allowed a choice of feeding from freely available food or food mixed with wood shavings. In both breeds, CFL tended to decrease after deprivation, but jungle fowl consistently showed more CFL than Leghorns also after food deprivation. This shows that differences in CFL between breeds were not altered by food deprivation, and the larger CFL in jungle fowl may represent a genetically based difference in feeding strategy. In a second experiment, we examined whether the differences in CFL affected how the birds acquired information about alternative food sites of different quality. Twenty birds of each breed were allowed to forage during three 10 min sessions in a four armed maze, where symbols in each end of the arms indicated the location of four different quality food sources, 'high gain' (freely available food), 'medium gain' (70% food, 30% wood shavings), 'low gain' (30% food), and 'no gain' (100% wood shavings). Each bird was then tested in the same maze when the 'high gain' food source and its symbol had been removed, and the other three sources contained only the symbols and wood shavings. Jungle fowl chose the symbol indicating the best available food source significantly more often than the Leghorns. The results indicate that Leghorn gain less information during foraging, which may have consequences for their adaptation capacity in a production environment. This could either be a consequence of Leghorns showing less CFL, or a generally impaired learning capacity of Leghorns compared to jungle fowl.

    Abstract [en]

    Contrafreeloading (CFL), i.e. choosing to work to obtain food over free food, has been studied in many different species. White Leghorn laying hens selected for high production have a lower extent of CFL compared to their wild ancestor, red junglefowl. We studied the effects of age, sex and social isolation. on the extent of CFL in red junglefowl and White Leghorn layers.

    For 48 h, 30 birds of each breed were allowed a choice, between freely available food and food mixed with wood shavings. Both females and males were tested individually as young birds (8-10 weeks old) and when they were sexually mature (27-29 weeks old). To test the possible effects of social isolation, the same birds were also tested in pairs at 30 weeks of age.

    Junglefowl showed a higher extent of CFL at the younger age compared to Leghorns (33.7% vs. 22.7%: P = 0.05) and both breeds showed higher extent of CFL at a young age than when sexually mature (P < 0.001). There were no significant differences between the two breeds when they were sexually mature and tested individually but, when tested in pairs, junglefowl showed higher extent of CFL than Leghorns (31.7% vs. 17.0%; P < 0.001). There were no differences in the extent of CFL between the sexes in either breed.

    The results indicate that age and social isolation influence the extent of CFL in fowl. Furthermore, the results support earlier findings that the extent of CFL is lower in Leghorns than junglefowl, indicating a possible side-effect of selection for increased production.

    Abstract [en]

    Contrafreeloading (CFL) is the behaviour where an animal chooses to work for food even when identical food can be obtained without any effort. Previous studies have suggested that the difference in CFL between White Leghorn layers and jungle fowl may be a side effect of selection for increased production traits in the Leghorn strain.

    In this experiment we studied to what extent broilers chicks (Cobb/Ross), which are highly selected for fast growth, perform CFL and compared this with a layer strain (Calder Ranger), which grows considerably slower. We predicted that broilers should have a lower degree of CFL compared to the layer strain, as an energy-saving response to the demands of rapid growth.

    During 48 h 10 pairs of each breed were given a choice between freely available food and food mixed with wood shavings. Behavioural observations were made twice each day. Broilers showed less CFL (p < 0.05), were more inactive (p < 0.001) and performed less active behaviours (p < 0.05) than layers.

    Our results support previous findings that decreased CFL in domestic fowl may indicate adaptive reallocation of energy resources in response to selection for increased production traits.

    Abstract [en]

    White Leghorn layers (WL) show modified foraging strategies. compared to their ancestor, the red jungle fowl (RJF). Birds selected for high production may invest more resources into production traits and less in other biological Processes. This may affect the capacity to adapt to new or variable environments.

    Thirty birds of each of RJF and WL were raised in a stressful environment (unpredictable light:dark schedule) and 30 control animals of each breed in similar pens, but on a 12:12 h light:dark schedule. We studied the differences between breed and treatment with respect to contrafreeloading (CFL), spatial learning ability and the birds behaviour in a T-maze.

    WL showed less CFL, were less cautious in the test arena and showed an impaired spatial learning ability Compared with RJF in both test situations. Stress impaired spatial learning in both breeds, but stressed RJF showed a more active response to the test situation than non-stressed RJF, by starting to eat faster, while stressed WL prolonged their time to start eating compared to non-stressed WL. Our results may reflect different adaptive Strategies, where RJF appear better adapted to an unpredictable environment.

    Contemporary Art as a Catalyst for Social Change: Public Art and Art Production in a Community of Practice2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis contextualise, and discuss the contemporary art as a catalyst for change, and raises social issues through art production in the urban district Nima. Perspectives of "community", and "community of practice" affiliates with examples of placed based art, mainly mural paintings performed in the urban landscape of the community, in the stigmatised community Nima, an area in Ghana’s capital Accra.

    The study has identified an artistic climate that is emerging from within the community, where artists have created a system for various forms of arts education. The artistic climate is a process of social practice, and this study further discuss the interaction of people in the process of art production, which provides both local, and global perspectives of art. Issues of representation, especially who is in the position to represent others, and how others are in fact represented are discussed and analysed as well as the terminology of “African art”.

    Guiderna och kulturarvssektorn2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien "Guiderna och kulturarvssektorn" analyserar (1) hur guider visar kulturhistoriska miljöer, (2) vad guider talar om när de visar kulturhistoriska miljöer, och (3) hur guider är organiserade. Studien baseras på observationer av guidade visningar i ett stort antal kulturhistoriska miljöer, intervjuer med guider, samt analys av guideföreningars arkivhandlingar. Teoretiskt används begreppen plats, rum, berättelse, identitet och professionalisering.

    Viktiga resultat: Guider visar kulturmiljöer med hjälp av en specifik guidekompetens. Formmässigt präglas guidade visningar av guidens personliga uttryck, av relativt stor variation i framställningen med inslag av humor, anekdoter, berättelser och korta informationstäta partier, av dialogiska inslag och av en (potentiell) förhandling om guidens auktoritet. Innehållsligt utmärks guidegenren av att innehållet förankras på platsen där guide och besökare rör sig. Innehållet är mer skiftande än i många andra genrer. Här samsas akademisk, saklig kunskap med mer underhållande inslag. Många guider i Sverige har sedan 1980-talet varit organiserade i guideföreningar och med den nationella paraplyorganisationen SveGuide. Guideorganisationerna har arbetat för en professionalisering av guidegruppen och har varit inflytelserika i sitt arbete för längre guideutbildningar. Ambitionen att få erkännande som en specialiserad yrkesgrupp har varit svårare och det är först 2016 som man nått fram till en nationell auktorisation av guider. Det stora flertalet guider har guideverksamheten som en bisyssla vilket bidrar till att förklara guidernas ganska svaga ställning.

    Heterosexual Havana: Ideals and hierarchies of gender and sexuality in contemporary Cuba2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on two periods of ethnographic fieldwork in Vedado, Havana, in 2004–2007, this dissertation analyses the interconnections between gender, sexuality, and heterosexuality. With theoretical inspiration from the works of Stevi Jackson and Beverley Skeggs, it discusses how the logics underlying heterosexual relations also regulate hierarchical gendered ideals. It examines how gendered conceptions of sexuality confirm a position of heterosexual desirability, and traces a specifically heterosexual gender construction of men and women as oppositional forces, glued together in a relationship of eroticized complementarity.

    Moreover, the dissertation shows that the everyday negotiation of ideals around gender and sexuality is characterized by constant hierarchization. It explores how the emic concept of ‘cultural level’ is used in a process of othering to mark moral distance and create a position of superiority. It also suggests that in post-crisis Cuba, the body has become a new site on which to inscribe distinction and mark privilege, as a way of navigating in a context of new and unfamiliar differentiations.

    The dissertation demonstrates how female eroticism, male eroticized performances in street interaction, and the female body ideal are central sites for establishing an image of national particularity. In this historic moment, these have also become sites for marking difference and creating hierarchies. The dissertation argues that inclusive and unifying conceptions of ‘Cubanness’ are both delineated and reinforced through exclusion and the demarcation of difference within this collectivity.

    This notion of the nation carries gendered and sexualized inscriptions. It has been constructed through the historical exclusion of non-heterosexuality, which has been closely connected to the consolidation of a specific ideal of masculinity. The dissertation analyses the destabilizing potential of a shift in Cuban sexual politics during the last two decades and explores how this might imply a new configuration of the relationship between gender and sexuality.

    Holding the harasser responsible: Implications of identifying sexual harassment that includes abuse of power and quid pro quo elements as sexual corruption2024In: Gender, Work and Organization, ISSN 0968-6673, E-ISSN 1468-0432Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that a perpetrator-based definition of sexual harassment that highlights corrupt aspects of sexual harassment may contribute to a shift in focus from the experience of the harassed, to the actions of the harasser. This argument is based on an analysis of testimonies of sexual harassment from the #metoo call by the Swedish police in 2017, which reference abuse of power and quid pro quo elements. By introducing the recently developed analytical framework of 'sexual corruption', we show how a perpetrator-based definition of sexual harassment may contribute to attributing responsibility to harassers. Identifying sexual harassment that includes the abuse of power and quid pro quo elements as corruption centers on the role of the abuse of power and, thus, the responsibility of the person abusing their position of power. Moreover, this shift bypasses discussions of whether or not the situation was experienced as 'unwelcome' by the harassed, the severity of the act, and questions of coercion and consent. Identifying instances of sexual harassment that include the abuse of power and quid pro quo elements as corruption also closes off attempts to portray it in terms of 'jokes' or banter, which is common in the police context. The article contributes with analytical tools that enable a shift from tracing the experience of the harassed to centering on the actions and responsibility of the harasser.

    White Women. White Nation. White Cosmopolitanism: Swedish Migration between the National and the Global2019In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 27, no 2, p. 96-111Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Emerging from the concepts of white cosmopolitanism and white cosmopolitan femininity, this article analyses "cosmopolitan narratives" of Swedish migrant women who lived abroad for an extended period and eventually returned to Sweden. Based on eight months' ethnographic work, including 46 in-depth interviews with migrants who had returned in Sweden, the article explores how national boundaries are both maintained and traversed in the construction of a "world citizen". It is argued that the women?s self-identification with a cosmopolitan ethos is structured by whiteness, nationality, and class that grants uninterrupted mobility and "worldliness". As symbolic bearers of the Swedish nation, national ideals act on the white women?s bodies internationally, in ways that both uphold and re-inscribe the nation into the global. Thus, apart from obscuring global inequalities, white cosmopolitan femininity is imbricated in both national and global politics as a place where global structures reconnect with the white nation, thereby enabling Swedish migrants to re-install themselves into contemporary global settings as self-defined cosmopolitan subjects

    Beyond citizenship: the material politics of alternative infrastructures2020In: Citizenship Studies, ISSN 1362-1025, E-ISSN 1469-3593, Vol. 24, no 5, p. 696-711Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper argues for a line of inquiry in the intersection between migration studies and STS work around the notion of material politics in alternative spaces. Drawing on multisited ethnographic inputs, I describe arrangements of cooperation coexisting with post-conflict reparation in Colombia and governmental humanitarianism in Greece. I follow material practices transforming objects into arrangements of remembrance and collective support and address the orders enacted by these practices as alternative infrastructures challenging infrastructures of migration control. The notion of alternative infrastructures offers the possibility to epistemically explore an overlooked angle by citizenship studies and STS; it engages with the objects and relations embedded in the materiality of everyday life and its politics beyond the boundaries of instituted forms of citizenship.

    Fathoming chemical weapons in the Gotland Deep2017In: Cultural Geographies, ISSN 1474-4740, E-ISSN 1477-0881, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 631-638Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the end of World War II, tens of thousands of tons of chemical warfare agents - mostly mustard gas - were dumped in the Gotland Deep - a deep basin in the middle of the otherwise shallow Baltic Sea. Decades later, these weapons are being reactivated - both literally (perhaps on the faces of dead seals, and in fishermens nets) and also in our imaginations. In this story that recounts the beginning of our research into this situation, militarization meets with environmental concern: the past floats into the present, where humans and non-humans are equally implicated, where the sea itself conditions the kinds of questions we can ask, and answers we might get, and where terms like threat and risk remain undecided. After spending time on Gotland Island - the closest terrestrial site to these weapons dumps - we ask what kinds of research methods might be adequate to these tangled, underwater tales that we find so difficult to fathom.

    Social citizenship and people with dementia: Designing social care policies in Sweden2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    People with dementia are commonly in need of some form of social care from the social services in order to manage their everyday situations. However, social services are shaped by the construction of policy targets. The aim of this dissertation is to explore the social citizenship for people with dementia. Social citizenship for people with dementia is explored by studying how people with dementia, in policy documents, have been constructed as a target group and also by studying how policies are enacted in practice by care managers, in their work and in their meetings with people with dementia. This is illustrated by studying policy documents from national level which range over nearly 40 years and 19 interviews with care managers. It is shown that, if and when, people with dementia are visible in policy documents, they commonly have a negative construction based on their cognitive and communicative abilities, as a burden, disturbing and incapable. It is further investigated how street-level bureaucrats, in this case care managers, experience meeting with people with dementia when they apply for social services. It is shown that care-managers experience difficulties concerning this group comprised of the exchange of information between care managers and people with dementia, refusal of social services by the person, the influence of relatives and other professions as well as moral dilemmas, such as the relations between the person with dementia and their relatives. The study shows that care managers have little support from policies, e.g. legislation and guidelines, in how to handle these dilemmas, and must thus create their own local ways of handling these situations. Care managers are thus influential policy actors concerning the policy target group of people with dementia. The policy processes which this dissertation illustrates, affect the social citizenship of people with dementia. It is shown that they, to an extent, have difficulties in influencing their own everyday situation concerning social services. Finally, the policy processes, will affect their possibility to influence their social citizenship.

    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how policy narratives in national policy documents in Sweden inform associated politics on people with dementia. This is disentangled in terms of how people with dementia have been defined, what the problems and their imminent solutions have been, and if and how these have differed overtime. Based on a textual analysis of policy documents at national level in Sweden, covering nearly 40 years the study shows how divergent policy narratives shape the construction of citizens with dementia as policy target groups. This study shows the temporal character of people with dementia as a political problem, the implications of policy narratives on people with dementia as a citizen group, and policy narratives as something being crafted rather than shaped by fixed pre-existing "facts". Dementia, and further citizens living with dementia, does not have a once and for all stabilised meaning. Instead, the meanings behind the categories continue to evolve and to be crafted, which affects the construction of citizens living with dementia, the space in which to exercise their citizenship and further belonging to the society.

    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study, based on 19 interviews with care managers, explores the experiences of care-managers involved in assessing the need for social services for people with dementia. The study shows that social workers, as care managers, face several dilemmas in their practice concerning people with dementia, in relation to the exchange of information and in regards to conflicting interests between different actors involved in the assessment of the need for support for people with dementia. Strategies used to handle problematic situations that arise in their work are using other sources for information (e.g., relatives and actors from other professions), persuading, and pursuing creative forms of consent. However, the study shows that dilemmas and strategies used generate other, prominently moral, dilemmas for care managers in their practice, which relate to participation and self-determination by the person with dementia. The study shed light on the problematic situation for care managers in their work to coordinate information and further the new “realities“ that they encounter as well as on how to handle these new situations. This study suggests possible ways to improve the everyday work of care managers, as well as how policies concerning social work and people with dementia can be improved.

    The image of women in the garden profession produced in magazines for gardeners 1860-19402015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I trädgårdsnäringens branschtidningar finns gott om exempel på att kvinnors försök att etablera sig i branschen ifrågasätts. Framför allt under 1900-talets första decennier återkommer artiklar som argumenterar för att trädgårdsmästarens yrke var mindre lämpliga för kvinnor. Det finns illustrationer av kvinnor som i ett naivt försök att utöva yrket exempelvis försöker klättra upp för stegar i snäva klänningar och högklackat. Andelen kvinnor med trädgårdsskötsel som huvudsaklig sysselsättning (med titlar som trädgårdsodlare, trädgårdsmästare, trädgårdsarbetare och trädgårdsdrängar) ökade från knappt 300 personer 1910 till drygt 2 200 år 1950. Det fanns särskilda trädgårdsutbildningar för kvinnor och exempel på framgångsrika kvinnliga trädgårdsmästare som drev omfattande handelsträdgårdar. Om all arbetskraft inkluderas, även de övriga sysselsatta i familjeföretagen (vilket även inkluderade barn), var andelen kvinnor drygt 40 procent. Det finns även exempel på kvinnor som lyckats och blivit framgångsrika i branschen. Jag ger både negativa och positiva exempel på hur kvinnor skildras i branschens facktidningar under 1990-talets andra hälft och hur bilden förändras över tid.

    Abstract [en]

    This article offers a collectively developed analysis of the Covid-19 crisis as it relates to contemporary cultures of rejection, i.e. the socio-cultural conditions in which authoritarian and right-wing populist politics thrive, in Europe. We explore how the pandemic and its management reinforces, transforms and/or overrides existing antagonisms and institutes new ones in Serbia, Croatia, Austria, Germany and Sweden. We discuss how the Covid-19 crisis affects the rise of new statisms; gendered patterns of social reproduction; mobility and migration; digital infrastructures; and new political mobilizations.

    Babies’ engagements with everyday things: An ethnographic study of materiality, movement and participation2021Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores how babies (1-18 months old) engage with material things in their everyday lives. The aim is to contribute with theoretical and empirical insights into babies own practices around material things and how attending to these practices can lead to reflections on participation, material culture and everyday space. The empirical material is collected through video ethnographic fieldwork in the homes of seven babies and their families. The empirical material has been analysed through combining cultural analysis with the analytical approach ‘thinking with theory’. The thesis shows that sensoriality and movement is important for understanding babies own engagements with things and that these engagements are not limited to things given to, or intended for, them. Babies also shape the everyday spaces of the families through their movements of things in their homes. The analyses also show that focusing on sensoriality and movement in the meeting between babies and the researcher is a promising contribution to discussions concerning participatory research and ethnographic method. The thesis is theoretically situated within the field of child- and childhood studies.

    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the insights we can gain about childrens participation and childrens perspectives by exploring babies engagements with the researcher and research technology during ethnographic fieldwork in babies homes. The article argues that attending to what is unplanned, troubling and messy offers opportunities for reflection on how participation and perspectives is done with babies in specific embodied and material research encounters. The article further argues for a cautious curiousness towards bringing in the notions of babies participation and babies perspectives into the discussion on childrens participation and childrens perspectives.

    Abstract [en]

    This article takes its point of departure in babies’ engagements with socks and seeks to explore (1) how material culture matters in babies’ everyday lives and (2) how we can understand material culture through attending to babies’ own practices, that is, babies’ culture. The ongoingness, sensoriality and movement of material culture are highlighted, and the article concludes that re-thinking material culture through babies’ engagements with socks means shifting the focus away from objects’ established meaning and towards the materials of those objects.

    Abstract [en]

    This article draws on a larger ethnographic study conducted in the homes of babies aged between one and 18 months and their families in Sweden. The article explores how everyday space is made in the homes of families through babies? engagements with material things by methodologically working with maps, images, lists, and stories. Three themes ? the practices of spreading things out, the height at which activities take place, and the multiplicity of things ? are highlighted as important for understanding babies? space-making practices. These practices are discussed in terms of the flows of things, which highlights how the practices of moving a multiplicity of things come to matter in the making of space in the homes of babies and their families.

    Att vara och agera medborgare: En etnografisk studie i folkbildande praktiker2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is directed towards examining the relation between the ideals of Nordic popular education, such as freedom and equality, and the expressions of these ideals in the popular education practices. This was explored by conducting a study that assumed the perspective of the participant (i.e. the party for which popular education is making knowledge and education accessible). More specifically, the interest of this thesis is aimed towards the relationship between citizenship education as an ideal and the expressions of citizenship education in study circle practices.

    The purpose of this thesis is to contribute ethnographic knowledge about what expressions of citizenship can be identified within institutionalised popular education practices. The thesis draws upon a definition of study circles as arenas where the participants exchange experiences and explore knowledge concurrently with others in order to understand and change their living conditions. Citizenship in popular education practices is understood to consist of identification (i.e. being) and deeds (i.e. acting). Citizenship in this context takes place in social interactions where differences are encountered and private issues are translated into public concerns. In order to capture citizenship in its complexity and contextuality, an overarching research question was formulated for the present study: What expressions does citizenship take in study circle practices? This research question was specified through the following three questions: (1) How are the participants being citizens in study circle practices? (2) How are the participants acting as citizens in study circle practices? (3) How are private perspectives transcended in favour of common concerns in the study circle practices?

    This ethnographic study was conducted examining three different popular education practices: a senior carpenter circle (13 participants), a philosophy study circle (9 participants) and an English study circle (12 participants). The data mainly consist of field notes, written during and after the fieldwork, and audio recordings of the meetings. The ambition was to illuminate popular education practices as observed first-hand from a citizenship perspective. The three mentioned practices were chosen to complement each other and to shed light on the different sides of the multitude of institutionalised study circle practices. The overarching aim of the analysis was both to explore what was said and done in each study group and to portray these data in a manner that at once accurately derives from the activities in the group and is still understandable to an outsider.

    The citizenship of popular education is expressed in different ways depending on how the study groups perceive their shared identity and what the participants strive to accomplish together. In all three groups, the participants orient themselves and the practices of their groups towards their studies and thereby agree on what the group is supposed to be doing and how the socialising should take place. Through social interaction and cooperation, the participants gain new knowledge and deepen interests already chosen before entering the study circles. In all three cases, this was made possible because the groups consisted to a high degree of likeminded participants. The findings of the three studies are summarised and categorised through the notions of identity, involvement (delaktighet) and view on education (bildningssyn). This is developed into a discussion of different kinds of freedom within the citizenship of popular education in light of the three field studies—freedom from, freedom to and a temporary lack of freedom.

    In the three field studies, the citizenship of popular education is expressed as counterweights and second chances in relation to the everyday lives of the participants at large. The study circles provide opportunities to be and act as citizens in alternative ways than everyday life makes possible. At the same time, participation in the study circles reinforce already existing perceptions the participants have of themselves. Participation also contributes to the deepening of interests already chosen before the participants sought out the study circles.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet för artikeln är att studera snickrandets medborgarskap som det tar sig uttryck i det sociala umgänget på en snickarkurs för seniorer inom institutionaliserad folkbildning i Finland (kallat «kansalaisopisto» på finska, «medborgarinstitut» på svenska). Folkbildning anses bidra till en fungerande demokrati genom sina kollektiva och deltagarorienterade verksamhetsformer och sitt innehåll. Målet med artikeln är att bidra med kunskap om hur detta ideal förverkligas och hur deltagandet i verksamhet inom den institutionaliserade folkbildningen kan förstås som uttrycksformer för medborgarskap. Studien har utförts som en etnografisk fältstudie med forskaren som en av deltagarna på kursen. Kursen pågick under 15 veckor, tre gånger i veckan. Gruppen består av tolv män och en kvinna i åldrarna mellan 60 och 80 år. Forskaren har strävat efter att bli en del av gruppen på dess villkor och att analysera och tolka verksamheten utgående från dess egna utgångspunkter. Snickrandet bland seniorerna i denna studie organiseras som en arbetsgemenskap. I denna gemenskap kan man agera som medborgare utgående från en gemensam värdegrund. Dessa värderingar tar sig uttryck som en strävan mot att uppfylla ett skötsamhetsideal för att kunna upprätthålla en handlingsberedskap som produktiv medborgare.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to study how the social interactions exhibited at a woodworking course for seniors within institutionalized popular education in Finland («kansalaisopisto» in Finnish, «medborgarinstitut» in Swedish) contribute to the participants' conceptualization of their citizenship. Popular education is considered to contribute to a functioning democracy through its collective and participant-centered activities and content. The aim of the article is to shed some light on how this ideal is realized and contribute knowledge about how participation in institutionalized popular education can be understood as an expression of citizenship. The study was conducted as an ethnographic field study with the researcher as a participant in the course. The course was held three times a week for 15 weeks. The participants consisted of 12 men and a woman between the ages of 60 and 80. The researcher aspired to become a part of the group in order to clarify what goes on in the course through thick descriptions relying on neither going native nor mimicking them. The seniors organize their woodworking in the course as a work community. Within this community, it is possible to act as a citizen in relation to shared basic values. These values are an aspiration to live up to ideals of conscientiousness and diligence in order to remain ready to act as a productive citizen.

    The purpose of this article is to contribute to the understanding of enactments of citizenship through participation in a study circle in philosophy. Citizenship is viewed as comprising acting and being in-and-through the study circle. This links citizenship to social contexts, actions and education. The study was conducted as an ethnographic field study over eight months. In total nine people, men and women of different ages, gathered once a month. The participants shared an ambition to form an open group for all interested in philosophy. Here, the ideals of freedom and voluntary participation led to both inclusion and exclusion.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to shed light on how the democratic ideal of institutionalised Nordic popular education is realised through an ethnographic field study in an English as a foreign language study circle. The study focuses on how participants express their citizenship when taking part in the study circle. Citizenship is viewed as a dynamic concept comprising the aspects of ‘being’ and ‘acting’ and constructed in and through social interaction. The study circle is arranged as a classroom practice: The study circle leader organises the activities, while the participants engage in exercises and attempt to learn correct usage. Through their participation, the participants take individual responsibility for what they see as their lack of sufficient knowledge of English. The participants describe their participation as a personal and voluntary investment in themselves. In light of the study, the individual stance is discussed as limiting possibilities for responsibility and thus expressions of citizenship.

    Uncontainable Life: A Biophilosophy of Bioart2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Uncontainable Life: A Biophilosophy of Bioart investigates the ways in which thinking through the contemporary hybrid artistico-scientific practices of bioart is a biophilosophical practice, one that contributes to a more nuanced understanding of life than we encounter in mainstream academic discourse. When examined from a Deleuzian feminist perspective and in dialogue with contemporary bioscience, bioartistic projects reveal the inadequacy of asking about life’s essence. They expose the enmeshment between the living and non-living, organic and inorganic, and, ultimately, life and death. Instead of examining the defining criteria of life, bioartistic practices explore and enact life as processual, differential, and always already uncontainable, thus transcending preconceived material and conceptual boundaries.

    In this way, this doctoral thesis concentrates on the ontology of life as it emerges through the selected bioartworks: “semi-living” sculptures created by The Tissue Culture and Art Project and the performance May the Horse Live in Me (2011) by L’Art Orienté Objet. The hope is that such an ontology can enable future conceptualisations of an ethico-politics that avoids the anthropocentric logic dominant in the humanities and social sciences.

    In this Candidate thesis, I will analyze the media coverage of the Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. I investigate the connection between a historic racist ideology which permeates American history and how this pervade todays current stereotyping of black bodies, with the presuming theory that Rap and Hip Hop Culture also is a way to criminalize these subjects. This will come about through a discourse- and visual analysis of different articles from four major publications and news distributers; CNN, CBS News, The Guardian US and The Washington Post

    Ritualernas marknad: etnologisk forskning om livscykelriter och upplevelseindustri2010In: Den rituella människan: Flervetenskapliga perspektiv, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press , 2010, p. 53-63Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Intresset för events, det vill säga noggrant regisserade händelser i syfte att fånga och behålla uppmärksamhet, har fått förnyad aktualitet i dagens forskning kring upplevelsemarknaden. Kultur- och samhällsvetenskapliga analyser av den nya ekonomins produktion, försäljnings-grepp och marknadsföringstekniker har satt begreppet upplevelse i fokus. En tydlig skärningspunkt mellan ekonomi och marknad, kultur och tradition utgör firandet av livsloppets ritualer. Trots att de i allra högsta grad kan kategoriseras som upplevelser – känsloladdade och symboliskt viktiga – och att de i sin iscensättning involverar många av de yrkesgrupper som sägs tillhöra den växande upplevelsenäringen, har de hitintills inte fått något större utrymme i undersökningen av ”the Experience Economy”.

    En förening i förändring: om idrottsföreningar på landsbygden och deras utmaningar i ett postmodernt samhälle2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, a study of how Swedish sports associations in rural areas are affected by the societal changes which the advent of the post-modern society has brought is declared. The studied data has been collected through qualitative interviews and thenceforth analyzed through the research method grounded theory. The informants who have participated in the study are all active in sports clubs in small villages themselves, and this thesis provides an insight in their experiences which hopefully can contribute to an increased knowledge about how Swedish sports associations in rural areas may develop in the next few years. The results reveal that the studied sports clubs experience severe problems in the recruitment of new members as well as voluntary trainers and members of the board. Moreover, the study proves an ongoing conflict between urban and rural areas which in particular concerns allocation of resources and political priority.

    Between Guardian and Punisher: The Role of the German Inspectorate Finanzkontrolle Schwarzarbeit for Migrant Workers2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Many in Germany argue that the minimum wage and other protective provisions for migrant workers will only be effective when workplace inspections by the enforcement body "Finanzkontrolle Schwarzarbeit" (FKS) are stepped up. For this reason, a novel cooperation agreement between the FKS and migrant workers' counseling offices has been signed, in June 2021. This step is informed by the FKS' public image of being a guardian of the minimum wage and of victims of labor exploitation. The hypothesis of this thesis is that the argument of more inspections lead to less exploitation is oversimplified. Therefore, it explores the role that the FKS has for migrant workers in more detail by using regime theory and a methodological approach informed by ethnographic border regime analysis. An analysis of the FKS' formal duties codified in the law reveals its ambivalent character. Especially the concept of unlawful employment serves as an umbrella term that conflates protective as well as punitive provisions for migrant workers. In eleven qualitative interviews, FKS officers and migrant workers' counselors mostly rejected the FKS' image as a "workers' protection squad". Instead, they think that the FKS only served the interests of the state. As a consequence, exploited workers have no immediate benefit from FKS inspections, and sometimes even experience heavy detriments like the loss of their job, housing, or unpaid wages. The most severe consequences, like expulsions or deportations, result from violations of the Residence Act. For these reasons, counselors reacted differently to the new cooperation agreement. While most counselors have strong reservations or even refuse to work with law enforcement bodies, others have found ways to cooperate without putting their clients at risk. For such successful cooperation it is crucial that FKS officers take workers' and counselors' needs seriously and adapt their routines and protocols in order to instill trust. Under the current legal and institutional configuration, increasing the number of FKS inspections is not pertinent to combat the exploitation of migrant workers. The argument that vulnerabilities of migrant workers emerge from a lack of enforcement is blinding out the fact that the enforcement of labor law itself produces vulnerabilities. Institutions tasked with the enforcement of protective provisions, must not be tasked with enforcing punitive provisions against migrant workers. Instead, workers need to be given an active role in the enforcement of their own rights.

    "Man vill göra så mycket för dem men ibland går det bara inte att få allt här i livet.": En studie om de professionella vuxna som jobbar med ensamkommande ungdomar2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses seven professional adults working with unaccompanied minors living at two different HVB homes. The purpose is to demonstrate how the staff in their daily work at these homes reason about and construct the minors’ gender, religion, ethnicity, culture, and exclusion. Using participant and partial-participant observation, a semi-structured interview guide was formulated, followed by conducting interviews of the staff. The interview data was analyzed with an intersectional perspective and with the theories stigma, ethnicity, culture, and gender. The results show that the responsibilities of the staff are beyond their job description, and that these adults must fill the shoes of an entire family tree and not only serve as authorities. The analysis reveals that the staff has clear ideas on gender and the power structure between the sexes, and also how they categorize the minors into different groups based on gender. The study also shows that the staff makes clear distinctions between communities in which social behavior, culture, religion, language, appearance, and way of thinking are tied together with the individual's ethnic background, potentially leading to an unintentional stigmatizing effect on the minors.

    Acoustethics: Careful Approaches to Recorded Sounds and Their Second Life2022In: Prace Kulturoznawcze, ISSN 0860-6668, Vol. 26, no 1, p. 11-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article attempts to rethink some problematic ways and motivations for engaging in (field) recording and working with recorded sounds. Interweaving reflections from my long-term soundscape archiving initiative undertaken in Stockholm, with projects of others aiming at preserving cultures through sound, I reflect upon ethical challenges that emerge against the prospect of second and following lives and deaths of recordings. Does the second life of a recorded event risk replicating power relationships that the original recording was enmeshed in? What can be gained and, more importantly, lost while conceiving a second life of a recorded sound? This article intends to open up an array of such questions which, as I suggest, need to be taken into consideration already before and during the recording process. As a discursive tool that does not resolve those concerns but instead creates space for critical reflection, I propose a concept of acoustethics. In a nutshell, acoustethics, as this portmanteau of acoustics and ethics suggests, is an ethically informed approach to the world’s soundscapes. I argue that any kind of engagement with the auditory world through recording technologies requires careful consideration of multiple agencies contributing to the recorded sound. As a reflective attitude to the sonic realm, acoustethics acknowledges that any recording takes place within already existing fields of relations and simultaneously generates new links between subjects, histories, worldviews, technologies, and other forces. In other words, any recording is intrinsically field recording.

    Soundscapes as archives: Traces and absences of the aural past in Vancouver2021In: Seismograf, ISSN 2245-4705Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper and its audio component are based on research that accompanied my work on Intertidal Room, a site-responsive and time-specific soundwalk composition.* It was developed in summer 2020 to be listened to during low tides while walking along Vancouver's shoreline. The composition explores how the entanglement of historical, environmental, and cultural processes at the city's intertidal zones has been reflected in their present soundscapes. This audio paper focuses more closely on the part concerned with Vancouver and British Columbia's colonial history. It features reflections from my fieldwork, fragments of conversations with Candace Campo, my guide to Vancouver's indigenous history, alongside field recordings from the intertidal zones. Overall, Intertidal Room is an attempt to practically engage in rethinking and reconfiguring some of the assumptions that have underlain the field of acoustic ecology and soundscape studies as conceptualized and practiced by the World Soundscape Project.

    With this audio paper and the extended abstract below, I propose that besides manifesting the acoustically present, soundscapes should also be heard as specific archives that comprise both traces and absences of the aural past. If carefully attended to, practices of listening, soundwalking, and soundscape composition can obtain the function of aesthetic and critical modes through which we can sense, access, work with, and give justice to these contested archives of the aural.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to analyse whether sfi (education in the Swedish language for immigrants)-bransch has been a successful social politic commitment from Linköpings municipality. With interviews as the prime material the essay handles relevant subjects for the student of sfi-bransch. At the same time as sfi-branch appears as a place for learning, it shows a number of paradoxes that seems to work in the opposite direction from the purpose of the education. Several interesting perspectives of sfi-bransch and the students situation, opens up with Pierre Bourdieus theory symbolic capital.

    The Migrant and Marginalized Body in Connection with Digital Technologies as a Prosthesis of the Monstrous2023In: Filozofski vestnik (Tiskana izd.), ISSN 0353-4510, E-ISSN 1581-1239, Vol. 44, no 2, p. 199-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article situates the (human) body as a signifier for society at large, arguing that developments in many societies of structural and systematic violence that targets minorities such as refugees and first nation peoples, points to a failure of democratic values. Using two examples, we elaborate technology and digital devices as prosthesis of the body, that are also acting as proxy for state violence. The first example is from the carceral archipelago of Manus Island as a site of remote detention of refugees carried out by the Australian government. Refugees held on Manus Island describe the treatment they experience as torture. The second example is drawn from the Australian mainland, telling the stories of First Nations children subjected to abuse and violence in juvenile detention centers. A judicial inquiry (Royal Commission) found that a systematic approach aimed at punishing children constituted torture. The concepts developed in this article are those of bordering and racialization, while the intertwining of human and '' more than human life '' helps to understand and challenge the necropolitical power evident in (liberal) capitalism.

    Abstract [en]

    A life story can be simplistically defined as a story that a person tells about his or her life or chosen parts of that life. Regardless of when a life story is told, the story is also a cultural and social product. We understand and tell our lives in a way that is understandable not only to others, but also to ourselves. Memories and stories are framed and shaped in relation to the concepts, beliefs and stories that exist in our contemporary culture and society. The analysis needs to consider not only the narrative offered, but also the meanings invested in it and their discursive origins. However, when working with previously collected and archived narrative material, it is not only the narrator’s relationship to, and negotiation of, existing discourses that should be considered, but also how the memory institution that initiates, creates and preserves collections of narratives contributes to the shaping of a certain type of life story and understanding of experiences in the past. Thus, the interviewee and the interviewer, but also the archivists and the institution, are emphasised as co-creators of the stories collected and archived in the collection. An important part of the analysis is therefore to listen for what is taken for granted, what is included in the stories, and also for the silences. This article examines how Jewish lives could be narrated during the years 1994–98 in the context of the collecting of Jewish memories at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm. It investigates in what ways the different actors involved in the collecting process – interviewers, interviewees, narrators and the memory institution itself – understood contemporary discourses on Jewishness and the identity categories used, such as religion, gender, class, generation and nation, when Swedishness and Jewishness were constructed in the individual life stories and in the design and archivisation of the collection.

    Hyenas of the Limpopo: The Social Politics of Undocumented Movement Across South Africa’s Border with Zimbabwe2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An increasing number of people today cross the Beitbridge border of South Africa and Zimbabwe. This comes with a corresponding growth of creative strategies that seek to aid the crossing of those people and goods that may lack the necessary documentation. Such ‘informal’ border crossings have come to define one of the important economic regions in Southern Africa, the post-1994 Limpopo Valley.

    This thesis approaches routine acts of facilitating undocumented border crossings as an everyday social politics with deep historical roots. By use of archival and ethnographic methods, the thesis examines the social history and embodied practices of a variety of actors who engage in undocumented border crossings. A particular focus is placed on the role of private transporters (omalayitsha), who represent an important link between an exclusionary and yet fragmentary migration regime and undocumented travellers. In three theoretical and four empirical chapters, and inspired by border studies as well as the critical realist approach in migration studies, the thesis connects border practice to irregular movement and cheap labour within a regional context defined, in part, by dispossession. Through thick interpretations of the lived experience of border practice, the study also connects such political economic processes (e.g. migrant irregularity, labour precarity and economic informality) to questions of social identity and migrant subjectivities.

    By situating the figure of the hyena at the centre of Southern African border struggles, the thesis invents an analytical concept that serves both an empirical and a theoretical task. Empirically, it enables a synthetic understanding of how everyday contestations around the possibility to work across the border for low-skill migrants have been interacting, through time, with broader processes of capital accumulation to partly shape the region’s migrant labour system. Theoretically, it shows how facilitation of undocumented border crossings calls for new sociological models that can account for processes that escape binary classification (as formal or informal, inclusive or exclusive, legal or illegal, ordered or disordered), thus contributing to a better understanding of the role of migration in the contemporary world.
