    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    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

    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”.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A time-geographic approach for visualizing the paths of intervention for persons with severe mental illness2017In: Geografiska Annaler. Series B, Human Geography, ISSN 0435-3684, E-ISSN 1468-0467, Vol. 99, no 4, p. 341-359Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Living conditions for persons with severe mental illness (SMI) in Sweden have changed dramatically in recent decades, mainly due to the closure of mental hospitals in the 1990s and the subsequent development of community-based interventions. Thereby, people with SMI have experienced care interventions in various forms, which vary according to how the treatment is institutionally organised over the years. There is, however, a lack of knowledge concerning what "care paths" persons with SMI have undergone in this fragmented institutional landscape. In this article we present a time-geography-inspired visualisation method to address this. A set of 437 persons, first diagnosed with psychosis between 2000-2004, were studied over 10 years with regard to their contact with various care institutions. We constructed time-geographic paths of intervention for these individuals and visualised them at an aggregate level. The initial exploration conducted using the proposed visualisation method showed gender and age differences in some respects, but also that the initial periods after the psychosis diagnoses were similar in terms of in-patient care interventions among men and women. The proposed visualisation method is promising and should be further developed for deeper analysis of long-term individual paths of intervention.

    The headset as an interactional resource in a video relay interpreting (VRI) setting2018In: Interpreting, ISSN 1384-6647, E-ISSN 1569-982X, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 285-308Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Video relay interpreting (VRI) enables communication between a signed language user, remotely connected to an interpreter by videophone, and an interlocutor in spoken contact with the interpreter by telephone. Both users of the service are physically separated from each other and from the interpreter, who is in a studio. Essential technical components of the system include such items as videophones, telephones, computers, software, and a headset. This article explores how the interpreter orients towards the headset, turning it into an interactional resource. Examples of how this is done are identified in extracts from a corpus of VRI conversations between users of Swedish Sign Language (SSL) and spoken Swedish. Ethical approval and all participants consent were obtained. Three practices were identified: pointing towards the headset, orienting towards it in other ways (positioning, gesturing, direction of gaze), and holding it. All these practices have concrete pragmatic implications for the various steps in communication, such as establishing reference, repairs, and turn allocation. Enhancing VRI interpreters awareness of how equipment like a headset helps to organize the interaction is important, with a view to ensuring that the available technology is used to best effect for purposes of communication.

    The positioning and bimodal mediation of the interpreter in a Video Relay Interpreting (VRI) service setting2016In: Interpreting, ISSN 1384-6647, E-ISSN 1569-982X, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 198-230Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the interpreters positioning in a Video Relay Interpreting (VRI) service that offers bimodal mediation between people using Swedish Sign Language (SSL) and people using spoken Swedish. Positioning subsumes the ways in which interpreters orient themselves to the contingencies of the setting on a moment-by-moment basis, in relation to the impact of technology, participants knowledge asymmetries (e.g., prior experience of VRI), their physical separation, and the need for two arenas (visual and auditive). The interpreting is bimodal, each of the two users being in direct contact with the interpreter through a different medium (telephone for one, videophone for the other). Nine excerpts from two calls within the VRI service serve as examples to show how the interpreters positioning emerges dynamically in relation to contingent variables of the setting, such as the initial importance of briefing users on the service, temporary loss of sound and image, the perceived need to inform either user of extralinguistic items, or situational awareness that it is time to conclude the interaction. This new research perspective on VRI can afford a better understanding of its moment-by-moment complexity and specificities, thus helping improve it and train interpreters better for it.

    Barns relationer i våldets närhet: Respons, positioner och möjligheten till barns röst2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim with this thesis is to explore children’s perspectives on responses when experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV). Special focus is on the children’s own responses, as well as the actions and reactions of their siblings, grandparents and other adults in their proximity. Through this, the objective is to explore the significance of the relational setting for children exposed to IPV. This thesis is inspired by the sociology of childhood and the sociology of personal life. It has also employed positioning theory. The thesis consists of four papers. In article I, the use of children’s voices in qualitative research with children exposed to IPV is discussed. The following empirical papers, who are based on analyses of interviews with 20 children (11–19 years of age), explore children’s experiences of responses when exposed to violence. The children’s stories suggest that there often are people who know about the violence and the articles analyse how children position themselves in their stories, but also how they are positioned by their siblings (article II), their grandparents (article IV) and other adults (article III). Children exposed to IPV may experience the violence differently and respond to the abuse in a variety of ways. Similarly, individuals in the children’s relational setting may respond to the abused children differently, which can be understood on the basis that relationships are surrounded by different expectations and that responses are interactional phenomenon – individuals close to the children partly adapt their response to how the children react to the abuse. Children describe responses from individuals in their relational setting as either helpful or unhelpful, depending on how responsive, accessible and intimate the individual is perceived. The thesis also suggests that the children have a limited room for maneuverer and only a few positions available for them in the aftermath of violence. The primary attainable positions to the children experiencing IPV are the ones as ‘vulnerable victim’, ‘vulnerable but competent actor’, and ‘adult-like and caregiving actor’. A key factor for children to receive helpful responses is being positioned as vulnerable victims and as competent actors simultaneously.

In their narratives, somechildren positioned themselves in line with notions of vulnerable victims, while others positioned them-selves as caregivers or changed their positions vis-a-vis their siblings. In their stories, they assigned andassumed positions in interaction with their siblings. Receiving sibling support and care was in the nar-ratives related to the quality of the sibling relationship, the shared experiences of violence and the ageorder.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses how qualitative research with children exposed to intimate partner violence deals with methodological issues of children’s voices. Violence researchers argue for the need to see children as competent social actors, di erentiate between groups of children, attending to adult– child asymmetry in research and acknowledging children’s individual experiences. However, little is said about how children’s voices are produced in their local, cultural and societal contexts. There is also an ignorance of the politics of representation, which may hamper the development of ethically responsible research on children exposed to intimate partner violence.

    Abstract [en]

    While there is a growing research interest in the experiences of children exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV), the role of children's social networks, other than the role of mothers, has been little discussed. The aim of this article is to study older children's stories of how they, and the adults in their social networks, respond to IPV. More specifically, we are interested in how older children describe both their own responses when exposed to IPV and responses from adults. This article focuses on the narratives of older children since they are often in a liminal position between adulthood and childhood, which may be consequential for their and others’ responses to violence. The article shows that responses are interactional and that children's responses affect how adults respond. Our analysis suggests that adults are positioning children as either adult‐like and competent or vulnerable, and this impacts significantly on the support that they receive. In our data, there are, however, also examples of middle ways where children are positioned as vulnerable yet capable. This seems linked to children's abilities to communicate their own needs. Although the study sample is limited, our results point to the significance of gender for how children respond. Copyright © 2016 John Wiley and Sons, Ltd. ‘Focuses on the narratives of older children since they are often in a liminal position between adulthood and childhood’ Key Practitioner Messages Social network responses can be crucial to the disclosure, ending and continuation of IPV. Awareness of exposure to IPV does not automatically result in responses that are beneficial to children's wellbeing. Professionals need to be better at communicating with the social network. Children's responses are contextual and protection and support should be designed according to children's individually varying needs. ‘Awareness of exposure to IPV does not automatically result in responses that are beneficial to children's wellbeing’ (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)

    Home-making: youth and urban unrest in multiethnic Sweden2017In: Reimagining Home in the 21st Century / [ed] Justine Lloyd, Ellie Vasta, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing , 2017, p. 135-150Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary welfare state restructuring in Sweden has led to increased ethnic and residential segregation in larger cities but also to the emergence of urban unrest. Following violent youth rebellions in Swedish suburbs during 2009 a plurality of new dialogue oriented activist groups have emerged among youth, profiled as ‘urban justice movements’. They represent a grassroots mobilization that interconnects spatial with social (in-) justice and addresses issues of segregation, racism and welfare transformation in Swedish cities. The article discusses agency, claims and the meaning of home-making among two generations of activists in multiethnic Swedish suburbia. The authors argue that emergence of new urban justice movements as a public voice expresses politics in making, relating the local with the national and connecting rights to the city with rights to home and belonging.
