    Am I that Swede?: (Un)comfortable conveniences and shared privileges in ethnographic fieldwork2009In: Feminist research methods: an international conference, 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses methodological dilemmas in a research project focusing on first-generation Swedish women living in the United States. From a white Swedish researcher perspective, the paper seeks to disentangle aspects of shared privileges and cross-cutting differences between researcher and participants in a non-Swedish context. What does it mean to pass as a (white) Swede and how are white privileges being upheld in such acting? How are class differences, in contrast, equalized when ethnography is conducted outside the national social class system, in this case in a non-Swedish setting where internal hierarchies may be re-negotiated? The paper argues that the use of privilege and passing as 'strategic assets' on the one hand often are necessary to reach specific groups of examination, but may on the other hand reproduce structural privileges by not intervening into normative assumptions of race, class and sexuality. In these circumstances, the paper further in  quires into the questions of what we can learn from studying privileged groups and, thereby, what we fail to see.

    "Concrete bodies".: young Latina women transgressing the boundaries of race and class in white inner-city Stockholm2010In: Gender, Place and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography, ISSN 0966-369X, E-ISSN 1360-0524, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 151-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines young Latina women’s interactions in the urban landscape of Stockholm, with a particular focus on white, middle-class areas, and how social difference and racial positioning are produced in and through the processes of urban segregation. Although Stockholm consists of different multiethnic and middle-class white suburbs, a discourse of sharp division between ‘the suburb’ and the inner-city is prevalent in the daily press. Here ‘the suburb’ is either portrayed as dangerous or exotic. This article is based on qualitative research with 29 young Latina women living and attending schools in both the suburban and inner-city areas. This approach facilitates an understanding of how gendered, racialized and classed aspects of segregation are embodied in multiple directions and how mechanisms of spatial exclusion prevail in predominantly white areas - often seen as ‘neutral’ or non-racialized areas. In conclusion, in order to capture the realities of young people’s lives within materialized discourses of race and space, I argue that it is crucial to include white settings in the analysis, and experiences of exclusion.

    Creating ‘international communities’ in southern Spain: Self-segregation and ‘institutional whiteness’ in Swedish lifestyle migration2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Southern Spain is the most attractive region in Europe for so called lifestyle migrants from a number of European countries, preferably from the Nordic countries and Great Britain. This paper examines intra-European relations as they are narrated by Swedish lifestyle migrants living permanently or part-time at the Spanish Suncoast. The aim is to discuss classed and racial aspects of self-segregation and constructions of cultural similarity and parallel difference that both override and uphold boundaries tied to national, cultural and social divisions. By looking at how formations of ‘international communities’ are shaped among north Western European lifestyle migrants, theories on ‘orientations’ towards whiteness and likeness, and institutions as ‘meeting points’ where some bodies tend to feel comfortable in certain spaces as they already belong here, are developed. These ‘international communities’ recruit particular subjects, yet resulting in a division between migrants from northern Europe, non-European migrants and locals from Spain. The results destabilize the idea of a common, culturally homogeneous European identity, displaying divisions mediated through discourses of cultural differences. What appears is a south-north divide built upon a deep Swedish postcolonial identification with Anglo-Saxon countries and cultures and parallel dis-identification with (the former colonial powers in) Southern Europe.

    Creating ‘international communities’ in southern Spain: Self-segregation and ‘institutional whiteness’ in Swedish lifestyle migration.2018In: European Journal of Cultural Studies, ISSN 1367-5494, E-ISSN 1460-3551Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines intra-European relations in narratives of Swedish lifestyle migrants living permanently or part-time on the Spanish Sun Coast. It pays particular attention to the complexities of Swedish migrants’ cultural identities and patterns of self-segregation in the Spanish society by investigating the following questions: How do boundaries of social networks that Swedish lifestyle migrants participate in, or interrelate, with a sense of ‘likeness’? In what ways are the formation of these ‘international’ networks mediated through ideas of cultural similarity and parallel difference, and how do such notions both override and uphold boundaries tied to social, cultural and racial divisions? It is argued that the formation of so-called ‘international communities’ on the Spanish Sun Coast tend to cluster mainly north-western European lifestyle migrants, which calls for an analysis of ‘orientations’ towards a certain ‘likeness’, and the function of these spaces and communities as spaces of ‘institutional whiteness’ that work as a ‘meeting point’ where some bodies tend to feel comfortable as they already belong here. The social and cultural boundaries that surround these communities destabilises the idea of a common, culturally homogeneous European identity and display intra-European racial divisions mediated through discourses of cultural differences. What appears is a south–north divide built upon a deep Swedish postcolonial identification with Anglo Saxon and north-western European countries and cultures, and a parallel dis-identification with (the former colonial powers in) southern Europe.

    Diasporic revolution: young women reconstructing the history of Latin American politics in Sweden2009In: Antipodes, 2009Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how the Latin American political and historical context and consciousness constitutes an important arena for the construction of diasporic identities among young women of Latin American origin in Sweden. Most of the young women are born and/or raised in Sweden with parents who were forced into exile during Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile in the 1970 and 1980s. From interviews and focus group discussions with 16-20 years-old young women in Stockholm 2003-2004, the paper explores how the younger generation in diaspora negotiates their parent’s experiences of military dictatorships and shows how Latin American politics still matter for young women’s interactions and identity-work. In contemporary Sweden, however, the Latin American diaspora, historically characterized by left politics and activism, is mixed with more recent migration from other counties such as Cuba bearing different political histories and ideas. The study shows that political consciousness impacts interrelations between different Latin American national diasporas living in Sweden, often along the lines of previous histories and conflicts. Yet, in a broader landscape of Latin American diasporas across the globe these histories are conflated with new diasporic dialogues.

    Different shades of Whiteness: White migration and re-imaginaries of race, gender and class in the case of first generation Swedish women in the United States2008In: First ISA Forum of Sociology Sociological Research and Public Debate, 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines Swedish women's gender- and nation-specific experiences of displacement, focusing constructions of national affinity among a group of expatriate women in a community network for Swedish-speaking women in the altered social and political landscape of the US. Moving from a Swedish Social Democratic society to a US laissez-faire neoliberal political model, migration is used as a departure to analyze how whiteness, class and gender are reinvented across different political contexts. The study is based on in-depth interviews, focus group discussions and participant observation in five local community chapters in the US Western region 2006-2008. Using an intersectional analysis, it is suggested that white Swedish middle-class migrant women in the United States encounter upward as well as downward mobility along the axes of race, gender, class and nationality. These contradictory outcomes are discussed in relation to heterosexual marriage, Swedish gender mythologies, and racialized labor that disentangles the gendered dimensions of white normativity, arguing that racial formations of privilege are shaped, transformed and reproduced in relation to local gender regimes and in interrelation to subordinated groups, thus including global relations between migrant women as a diverse group constituted by class and race cross cutting structures.

    Gender, capital and neoliberal politics: The case of Swedish women in the United States2009In: Sociologförbundets årsmöte: Makt och motstånd i dagens välfärdsstater, Uppsala, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines migrating women’s gender- and nation-specific forms of capital, focusing on first-generation Swedish women moving to the altered social and political landscape of the United States. A majority of the women migrated from middle-class environments in Sweden, and their diasporic experiences are used as a departure to analyze how former class positions are being re-enacted (or not) in the US neo-liberal State. The study is based on in-depth interviews and focus groups discussions with 31 women and three of their spouses, and participant observation in a support group for Swedish-speaking women in the US Western region 2006-2008. Using an intersectional analysis, it is suggested that Swedish women are located in contradictory class positions in the US, related to gendered hierarchies and to the loss of nation-bound social and cultural capital as well as of the Social Democratic welfare State, however with a possibility to hire racialized labor in a different social geography. Class privileges were thus shaped, transformed and reproduced through the women’s capacities to re-invest cultural and embodied forms of capital and in relation to subordinated groups, often other women migrants, thus mirroring the unequal relations between (migrating) women on a global arena.

    A housewife “at home”. Returning migrant women’s encounters of Swedish gender equality in policy and in practice

    This article discusses the experiences of Swedish migrant women who are returning to Sweden after having lived abroad for a period of their lives. Most of them have been situated outside the formal labour market during their time abroad and been occupied with family related work. The aim of this article is to analyse how political ideals formulated around work, gender equality and income redistribution, encounter the constructions of Swedishness, gender and heterosexuality in these women’s stories. When living abroad, the women were provided for by their husbands. Yet, their positions as “trailing spouses” had had severe impact on their opportunities for reintegration into the labour market as well as for their future – or current – pensions. The article discusses the political and sociological consequences of women’s economic dependence, primarily in terms of welfare state distribution and pensions by asking: In what ways are returning migrant women situated in-between a global labour market and the Swedish welfare system in relation to migration, gender and gender equality?

    Abstract [en]

    On the basis of 13 in-depth interviews with Swedish women and one month of ethnographic work in the Swedish community in Singapore in 2009, this article examines how Swedish women, travelling from Sweden to Singapore as "expatriate wives" in the wake of their Swedish husbands, navigate gendered and racialised transnational spaces of domestic work and negotiating their changed identities as both housewives and employers of live-in maids in the household. How do the women justify their current division of labour in the light of Swedish national ideologies of work and Swedish ideals of gender and class equality?

    Intra-European Migration and the institutionalization of whiteness in southern Spain2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Southern Spain is the most attractive region in Europe for so called ‘lifestyle migrants’ from a number of European countries, preferably from the Nordic countries and Great Britain. This paper discusses the institutionalization of national identities, from in-depth interviews and ethnographic work with Swedish migrant women in Fuengirola, Marbella and Málaga conducted in the spring of 2010. Through an analysis of intra-European migrations and their race and class relations, the idea of a common, culturally homogeneous European identity is deconstructed. What appears is a south-north divide built upon a deep Swedish postcolonial identification with Anglo-Saxon countries and cultures and parallel dis-identification with (the former colonial powers in) Southern Europe. The Swedish women interviewed were mainly socializing with other north(west) European migrants from similar social segments who shared the embodiment of white ‘structured invisibility’, thus separating them from non-European migrants, but as well from Spaniards.

    By looking at how nationally-specific formations of white identity are played out in southern Spain, I develop Sara Ahmed’s (2007) theories on ‘orientations’ towards whiteness, likeness and institutions as ‘meeting points’ where some bodies tend to feel comfortable in certain spaces as they already belong here. Whiteness is here discussed in terms of “likeness”, “proximity” and “shared attributes” that bring some people together in a foreign context. Following Ahmed, I argue that the “institutionalization of whiteness” in southern Spain recruits subjects who feel they are part of an ‘international community’, but resulting in a division between migrants from northern Europe, non-European migrants and locals from Spain. The paper further develops class-related national identities. Migrants of upper-middle-class background retained their class positions more effectively than the lower-middle-classes whose migration to Spain was often characterized by a sense of downward class mobility in terms of economic capital, and a higher orientation towards primarily national organizations and institutions.

    Abstract [sv]

    I samband med att ett skatteavdrag för rengöring, underhåll och tvätt (det så kallade RUT-avdraget) infördes 2007 började en intensiv debatt om hushållstjänster i Sverige. Idag subventioneras RUT-tjänsterna med ungefär 1,5 miljarder kronor av skattemedel. RUT har blivit en del av många människors vardag och har medfört stora förändringar i svenskt familje- och arbetsliv.Hur ser då förhållandena ut för dem som arbetar på den växande hushållstjänstemarknaden? Har de svarta arbetena blivit vita, som tanken var? Vad betyder det att äldre övergår från att vara mottagare av omsorg till att bli kunder på en marknad för hushållstjänster? Finns det några likheter mellan dagens hushållstjänster och det arbete som tyska hembiträden utförde i Sverige på 1950-talet? Hur resonerar svenska kvinnor bosatta i utlandet kring social jämlikhet och hushållsarbetares rättigheter, när de själva får rollen som arbetsgivare?Om dessa och andra relaterade frågor handlar denna bok, med bidrag av landets  främsta forskare på området: sociologer, statsvetare, historiker, genusvetare, arbetsrättsjurister och antropologer från en rad svenska universitet. De utforskar vad som händer på hushållstjänstemarknaden och följer särskilt de internationella sambanden. Även den växande efterfrågan på hushållstjänster i resten av världendiskuteras, med fokus på migration och internationell arbetsfördelning. Boken återger många olika erfarenheter och perspektiv  här får såväl nystartade städentreprenörer som hushållsarbetare i exil och andra inblandade aktörer komma till tals.

    Migrating citizens: Citizenship as (trans)national capital2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines first-generation Swedish migrant women’s transnational organization around national identity, foregrounding new forms of national belonging on an increasingly globalized arena, where social and geographical boundaries are simultaneously transgressed and fixed. Empirically, the paper builds upon ethnographic work and in-depth interviews conducted in a global support network for Swedish migrant women in the United States, Singapore and Spain, 2007-2011. The sense of national belonging constitutes the basis of the community, drawing the boundaries of both inclusion and exclusion, in ways that re/construct differences, distances and inequalities between women in a transnational migratory context. In these circumstances, citizenship becomes an important dimension of the women’s sense of belonging and stability. Most of the women interviewed had kept their formal Swedish citizenship as a warrant for welfare, intimately linked to Swedish “women and child friendly” politics, a practice which points to a continuous importance and belief in the welfare State as a national capital on a global neo-liberal market. Such practices highlights what the sociologist Anja Weiss’ (2005) has identified as the “transnationalization of social inequality”, pointing at migrants’ different positions according to their connections to “weak” or “strong” national welfare states. While the lack of citizenship status serves as an additional axis of inequality and exploitation for most migrants, lacking a formal citizenship in the country where they reside is a choice for Swedish migrant women. For them, Swedish citizenship works as a “back up” for health care, education, elderly care, or future reterritorialization. Citizenship thus becomes a crucial form of gendered ‘national capital’ – an economic, social and symbolic resource that distanced and distinguished them from the majority of migrants, underscoring the unequally distributed resources that national belongings provide in a transnational migratory context. Hence, citizenship cannot be approached as a unified and internationally coherent concept. Rather, it raises questions of whom, where and where from, embracing inclusive boundaries as well as exclusive functions.

    "Mistresses" and "maids" in transnational "contact zones": Expatriate wives and the intersection of difference and intimacy in Swedish domestic spaces in Singapore2013In: Women's Studies: International Forum, ISSN 0277-5395, E-ISSN 1879-243X, Vol. 36, no SI, p. 44-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the tensions that arise when professionally educated Swedish migrant women relocate to a temporary expatriate wife status, with a particular focus on the transnational household as a “contact zone” between expats and migrant domestic workers in Singapore. Based on interviews and ethnographic work with 13 Swedish women and one month of fieldwork in the Swedish community in Singapore in spring 2009, the article investigates the women's altered positions as “trailing spouses” and employers from an intersectional perspective that highlights the politics of difference between women with regard to constructions of race, femininity and intimacy. In this context, the article explores how processes of globalisation, transnational migration and division of labour are played out between the different migrant women in the household sphere, thus broadening contemporary discussions by including privileged practices and positions in transnational migration. As expatriate wives, the Swedish women were often locked into conservative frames, oriented towards “family values”, negotiated in relation to (former) ideologies of gender equality and (new) power relations in the household sphere.

    "Okay, but we are not whores you know": Latina girls navigating the boundaries of gender and ethnicity in Sweden2006In: YOUNG: A Nordic Journal of Youth Research, ISSN 1103-3088, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 203-218Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of the term ‘whore’ is commonly directed at young women, and has, for this reason, been widely debated in the Swedish media and elsewhere. In the article, I focus on Latina girls’ experiences of being called ‘whores’ in Sweden. Individual interviews and focus group discussions were used for generation of data. Their narratives are analysed from a perspective that highlights how gender and ethnicity intersect in this highly sexualized word. In my analysis, I explore the diverse meanings of the term ‘whore’, and how discursive categories such as ‘immigrants’ and ‘Swedes’ are elaborated. The study suggests that meanings of the term ‘whore’ shift within a multiplicity of relationships and contexts and might, among other things, be associated with toughness. In conclusion, while women of diverse backgrounds are called ‘whores’, the connotations of the term depend on how this sexualized issue interacts with local constructions of ethnicity and femininity. These different constructions also shape the girls’ possibilities of negotiating their subject positions.

    People take for granted that you can dance Salsa and Merengue: Transnational Diasporas, Visual Discourses, and Racialized Knowledge in the Contemporary Latin Music Boom in Sweden2008In: Internationell migration - utmaningar och möjligheter: ett interdisciplinärt samtal, Stockholm: Stockholms universitet , 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During recent years US based Latin popular culture has gained worldwide popularity through artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Ricky Martin. Taking the national context as an emerging vantage point from which to consider globalization processes, the paper explores the growing popularity of the Latin music boom as a specific contemporary expression of global popular culture and its impact on young Latina women's everyday lives and identity work in Sweden. Based on interviews and focus group discussions with twenty-nine high school Latina girls, 14-20 years of age, born and/or raised in Sweden, it is examined how music arenas and its appeal to hybrid identities are to be construed when we reflect critically upon the contemporary articulations of commodity cultures and representations. In the particular context of Sweden, the paper inquires into how young Latina women's negotiate popular representations of Latinidad through intentional as well as unintentional embodiment of these images. It is argued that while visual discourses and representations in popular culture tend to fix young women in preconceived ideas of ethnicity and race, the young women themselves find myriad ways to reconstruct stereotyping ideas and build diasporic links to other Latino/a diasporas, especially in the US.

    Abstract [en]

    In recent years US-based Latin culture has gained worldwide popularity through artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Ricky Martin. Taking the national context as an emerging vantage point from which to consider globalization processes, this article explores the growing popularity of ‘Latin music’ as a specific contemporary expression of global popular culture and its impact on young Latina women’s everyday lives and identity work in Sweden. Based on interviews and focus group discussions with twenty-nine high school young Latina women between 14-20 years of age, born and/or brought up in Sweden, the article examines how musical arenas and their appeal to hybrid identities are construed in contemporary articulations of commodity cultures and representations. In the particular context of Sweden, the article looks at how young Latina women negotiate popular representations of latinidad through an intentional and unintentional embodiment of these images. It is argued that while visual discourses and representations of popular culture tend to fix young women in preconceived ideas of ethnicity, race and gender, the young women themselves find a myriad of ways of reconstructing stereotyping ideas and creating diasporic links with other Latino/a diasporas, especially in the United States.

    Rasifierat begär: de andra som exotiska2012In: Om ras och vithet i det samtida Sverige / [ed] Tobias Hübinette, Helena Hörnfeldt, Fataneh Farahani & René León Rosales, Botkyrka: Mångkulturellt centrum , 2012, p. 189-213Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns rasistiska strukturer i dagens Sverige- Men flertalet av oss blundar gärna för både vithetens privilegier  och den diskriminering som icke-vita svenskar utsätts för. Vår fysiska kropp påverkar hur vi blir bemötta, betraktade och behandlade. Därför måste vi börja tala om ras.

    Först då kan vi förstå de samhällsproblem som handlar om vardagsrasism, segregation och diskriminering.Med inspiration från kritisk ras- och vithetsforskning skärskådar tolv forskare med varierande akademisk bakgrund dagens Sverige. Dessutom berättar medlemmar i Mellanförskapet, författare, journalister och andra om sina erfarenheter av att leva som icke-vita svenskar i dagens Sverige.
