    Generational positions at family dinner: Food morality and social order2011In: Language in society (London. Print), ISSN 0047-4045, E-ISSN 1469-8013, Vol. 40, no 4, p. 405-426Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article concerns generation and food morality, drawing on video recordings of dinners in Swedish middle-class families. A detailed analysis of affect displays during one family dinner extends prior work on food morality (Ochs, Pontecorvo, & Fasulo 1996; Grieshaber 1997; Bourdieu 2003; Wiggins 2004), documenting ways in which participants may shift between distinct GENERATIONAL POSITIONS with respect to affects and food morality (from “irresponsiblechild” to caretaker positions). In our recordings, an elder sibling is shifting between a series of contrasting affective stances (Ochs & Schieffelin 1989; M. Goodwin 2006; Stivers 2008), linked to generational positions along an implicit age continuum: positioning himself, at one end of the continuum, as his young brother’s accomplice, and at the other as an adult, aserious guardian of food morality. This study shows that generational positionsare not fixed, but are positions adopted as parts of language socializationand interactional events.

    Homework as serious family business: Power and subjectivity in negotiations about school assignments in Swedish families2007In: British Journal of Sociology of Education, ISSN 0142-5692, E-ISSN 1465-3346, Vol. 28, no 2, p. 209-222Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Most previous research on parental involvement in children¿s homework has focused on the pedagogical advantages or disadvantages of school assignments while neglecting the practice in its social context, family life. By studying parent-child homework negotiations in Swedish families, this paper examines how family members position themselves and each other in relation to Swedish discourses on homework and parental involvement. The study shows that parents want their children to do homework independently. It is hard for the parents to take up another subject position than that of a ¿responsible parent¿ who helps the child with homework or controls that it is done. Thereby, the child is simultaneously positioned as ¿irresponsible¿ whether that is the case or not.

    Involved Parenthood: Everyday Lives of Swedish Middle-Class Families2009Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The dissertation studies how 16 Swedish middle-class parents understand and form their parenthood in everyday life. The focus is set on how they involve themselves in their children’s care and education, and how parental identities are negotiated in relation to cultural norms on parenthood. The analysis is based on qualitative methods, in particular interviews and participant observation with video camera in eight families. The study, which is inspired by poststructuralist perspectives on identity formation, shows that the informants position themselves in relation to a norm on involved parenthood, which is negotiated differently depending on social context and gender. The dissertation includes four empirical studies. The first focuses on the subjectivities and dilemmas that are created by parents’ strategies to manage time and childcare. The strategies render everyday life more effective, but the parents also want to be child-centered, which forces them to balance between positions as involved and uninvolved parents. The second study examines how the fathers negotiate their involvement in household work, childcare and time with children. To great extent, they follow the discourse on gender-equal and involved fatherhood, but they at times resist it through drawing on notions of child-centeredness, kinship, and a gendered division of labor. The third study focuses on how parents and teachers negotiate children’s education and rearing. Study four shows how the parents position themselves as involved parents in relation to their children’s homework. In conclusion, the dissertation shows that the parents idealize time spent with the children, but that in everyday life it is hard to get this time. Instead, much time is spent for the child, that is, doing household work and childcare. In both cases, time is child-centered, but time with the child is by the parents seen as “more” involved time.

    Abstract [en]

    The present article documents how dual-earner families employ different household strategies when managing time and childcare in everyday life. In particular, the focus is set on the unforeseen consequences of household strategies, that is, novel emerging problems, cultural ideals, and subjectivities. This ethnographic study of eight middle-class couples in Sweden analyzes three household strategies: delegating, alternating and multitasking. While parents apparently use these strategies to juggle the multiple demands of everyday life in a time-efficient way, they also comply with a norm of involved parenthood. Thus, when employing household strategies, the parents balance between enacting themselves as involved parents and running the risk of being understood as uninvolved.

    Abstract [en]

    Recent research shows that Swedish fathers to a great extent endorse an ideal of gender equality and the discourse on the 'new', involved fatherhood that for several decades has been dominating Swedish family politics is now also more or less hegemonic among Swedish men. At the same time, research argues that there is a discrepancy between ideology and practice. Parenthood still means different things for men and women since women, for instance, continue to take the main responsibility for childcare and household work. Drawing on an ethnographic study, this article analyses how eight Swedish middle class men construct themselves as involved fathers and how they negotiate their involvement in household work, childcare and close relations with their children. The article shows that even though the discourse on paternal involvement may be dominant, it is nevertheless contested. The men mostly constructed their involvement as being gender-equal, but at times they resisted it through articulating discourses on child-centredness, kinship and gendered division of labour. Thus, they reiterated themselves as involved fathers, but not always necessarily in line with the official dual-carer discourse.

    Abstract [en]

    The present article explores home-school relations by analyzing how Swedish teachers and parents negotiate responsibility for children's education and rearing through school letters. It draws on participant observations using a video camera in families, interviews with parents, and analysis of school letters written by teachers to parents. The division of public and private responsibility for children is negotiated in terms of expertise. Teachers position themselves as 'educational experts', and are able to prescribe how parents are supposed to be involved in children's education. Teachers construct parents as 'rearing experts', and ask them to take responsibility for their children's behavior in school by disciplining them at home. The prescribed parental subject is adopted by parents, particularly mothers, as they position themselves as involved parents.

    Parent Involvement in Children's Homework in American and Swedish Dual-earner Families2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study employs a combination of ethnographic case-study methods and discourse analysis of parent-child interactions to document parental involvement in children-s homework in Sweden and the U.S. We find that involvement can be characterized both in terms of intensity of involvement and points of involvement and that these dimensions vary due to a number of factors. We finally discuss a number of inherent tensions that exist in the policy of parent involvement.

    Att (inte) bli en kvinnomisshandlare2012In: Andra män: Maskulinitet, normskapande och jämställdhet / [ed] Lucas Gottzén och Rickard Jonsson, Gleerups Utbildning AB, 2012, 1, p. 149-165Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige är världens mest jämställda land, med världens mest jämställda män. Åtminstone framställs det ofta så, både i offentlig debatt och i vardagliga samtal. Denna bild av den normale svenska mannen upprätthålls dock genom att något annat - eller någon annan - skapas som avvikande, annorlunda, obegriplig eller sjuk.

    I den här antologin diskuteras hur det som uppfattas som goda handlingar används för att representera det gemensamma, medan våldsbrott, kvinnomisshandel och sexism förklaras som ett verk av Andra män. Är det därför som män som misshandlat kvinnor har så svårt att se sig själva som kvinnomisshandlare? Är det därför som fördomsfulla stereotyper av invandrarmän används som förklaring till brott eller sexism?

    Hur kommer det sig i så fall att även feministiska män skapas som avvikande? Och vilka föreställningar utmanas egentligen när äldre män beskriver sina växande bröst som sexuellt laddade och njutbara? Varför kan män med funktionsnedsättning inte debattera hjälp till sex utan att ses som kvinnoförtryckare? Eller varför är pedofilen så närvarande i samtal mellan unga män på ett behandlingshem, medan mäns sexuella våld mot barn är så frånvarande i svenska diskussioner om mäns föräldraskap och män i barnomsorg?

    I Andra män diskuterar forskare från antropologi, genusvetenskap, socialt arbete, sociologi och ungdomsvetenskap hur Andra män pekas ut som avvikande, men också hur dessa män hanterar utpekandet.

    Encountering violent men: Strange and familiar2013In: Men, masculinities and methodologies / [ed] Barbara Pini & Bob Pease, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2013, p. 197-208Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Feminist researchers have produced a large body of critical scholarship on methodologies as they pertain to the study of women. However, questions about issues such as power, positionality and ethics in research related to men and masculinities have remained largely unaddressed. This is despite the fact that research on men and masculinities has grown exponentially in recent years, as is evidenced by the increasing number of scholarly books and journals on the subject.  In this book researchers reflect on their experiences of studying men and masculinities from the perspective of topics ranging from internet dating and violence to social inclusion and rock climbing. They also canvass how we can address difference and diversity amongst men and between masculinities in our methodological approaches. Through the lens of masculinity studies the authors contribute to broader methodological debates about subjects such as field access, insider-outsider positioning and qualitative versus quantitative approaches

    Abstract [sv]

    I dagens diskussioner kring lärande återkommer frågan om vad som händer vid sidan av etablerade utbildningar och institutioner. Vilket lärande äger rum utanför den organiserade undervisningen och vad kännetecknar detta lärande?

    Familjeliv och lärande tar steget ut från klassrummen och placerar familjen i centrum. Med utgångspunkt i tre teman - identitetsaktiviteter, studieaktiviteter och fritidsaktiviteter - analyserar författarna olika praktiker där barn och vuxna ingår, samt sätter in familjen i ett lärandeperspektiv.

    Varje tema illustreras och problematiseras genom ett antal kapitel som utifrån angelägna frågor bidrar med värdefull inblick och kritiska reflektioner kring familjers sociala samspel.Boken vänder sig till blivande och verksamma lärare samt andra pedagoger. Alla som intresserar sig för små och stora människors lärande i vardagen kan hitta kunskap och inspiration här.

    Hjältar och monster: samhällsvetenskapliga perspektiv på män och våld2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Män står för merparten av våldet i samhället. Vad är det som gör män så våldsbenägna? Hur ska man beskriva och analysera det manliga våldet? Hänger maskulinitet samman med våld? Detta är exempel på frågor som rör sig i diskussionen om våldet idag. Ofta glömmer man att det många gånger handlar om ett våld där unga kan vara både förövare och offer.

    För att ett effektivt förebyggande arbeta mot killars och mäns våld ska kunna utvecklas behövs forskning och insatser som fokuserar på  förövaren. En fördjupad medvetenhet om genus är nödvändig. Vi vet till exempel att jämställdhet i sig fungerar våldsförebyggande. Ett generellt våldspreventivt arbete handlar då om främjande insatser bland unga där attityder och värderingar kring genus och våld bearbetas. De som är engagerade i ett sådant arbete eller är på väg att starta verksamheter av detta slag behöver en teoretisk grund kring hur maskulinitet relaterar till våld. Hur har det sett ut genom åren och hur ser det ut idag?

    I Hjältar och monster presenterar vi samhällsvetenskapliga perspektiv på mäns våld. Vi diskuterar bland annat könsrollsteori, patriarkatsteori och hegemonisk maskulinitetsteori. Ambitionen är att genom de olika teorierna försöka förklara orsakerna till mäns våld. Hur beskriver de mäns relation till kvinnor, barn och andra män? Hur relaterar förklaringsmodellerna till klass, etnicitet och ålder?

    Involved fatherhood?: Exploring the educational work of middle-class men2011In: Gender and Education, ISSN 0954-0253, E-ISSN 1360-0516, Vol. 23, no 5, p. 619-634Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper explores middle‐class fathers’ educational work by studying how they and their partners are involved in their children’s education at home, in school, and how they investigate school options and make decisions about educational issues. Drawing on data from an ethnographic study of 30 dual‐earner couples in the Greater Los Angeles area, this article analyses how fathers position themselves in relation to discourses on parental involvement in education. In order to demonstrate the variety of ways fathers are involved three case studies are presented. It is illustrated how the men, by drawing on a discourse on involved fatherhood, position themselves in line with an ideal of parental involvement in education. Fathers who are doing less educational work than their spouses offer accounts for not taking a greater educational responsibility by drawing on a breadwinner discourse or by depicting mothers as gatekeepers of father involvement.

    Kvinnomisshandlaren och maskulinitetens monstruösa framtid2015In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 36, no 1-2, p. 7-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the monstrous “woman batterer” is used as a figuration and made a point of departure in order to destabilise masculine ontology. The monster is here seen as a deviant figure that gives meaning to the normal, but also as a figure that blurs the borders between the strange/unfamiliar and the known/familiar due to its contingent ontological position. This argument is developed by analysing two sources of material: a newspaper column by a conservative male author, which shows how partner-violent men are understood as monstrous woman batterers, who are seen as the Other of “normal”, gender-equal Swedish men; and qualitative interviews with 44 partner-violent men, demonstrating how they distance themselves from the “woman batterer” figure and instead understand the woman batterer as a deviant and monstrous masculinity they do not want to be associated with. The fact that “normal” men cannot completely disassociate from the monster makes it threatening – it endangers the ontological coherence of masculinity. Paradoxically, the woman batterer therefore enables a “monstrous future” – it opens up for a volatile and vulnerable masculine becoming.

    Abstract [en]

    Children live their lives across various social settings, including homes, kindergartens, schools and different kinds of institutions. The different contributions of this book focus on children's perspectives, and on how children learn and develop through taking part in activities in social communities such as families, peer groups, classrooms, and day care institutions. This collection illustrates different ways of dealing with varying social contexts, and the research presented involves questions about children's world-making, anchored in children's daily lives. The studies are inspired by Vygotsky's theory of development (1998), as well as childhood sociology. One of the aims has been to problematice time, change, continuity, developmental trajectories, and transitions in order to identify novel ways of discussing 'development' in relation to different trajectories through childhood and youth.

    Abstract [sv]

    För tio år sedan publicerade sociologen Anne-Lie Steen en översikt av den svenska forskningen kring mäns våld mot kvinnor. I denna beskrevs forskningsområdet som ett ”diskursivt slagfält”. Detta är ett minst sagt passande uttryck. Det finns få områden inom samhällsvetenskap och genusforskning som väcker så mycket ont blod. Få forskningsområden där den akademiska debatten stundtals liknat skyttegravskrig. De hårda debatterna har förts mellan feminister och individualpsykologer, men också mellan olika feministiska positioner.

    Skam, maskulinitet och respons på mäns våld mot kvinnor2013In: Socialvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 1104-1420, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 75-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on qualitative interviews with 44 men in batterer interventions programs, the present article focuses on responses to men’s violence against women, particularly on violent men’s expected and experienced responses from their social networks. The participants see violence against women as morally reprehensible since men are not supposed to use violence against “weaker” individuals (e.g. women) and that couple relationships are supposed to be characterized by mutual respect. They argue that their social networks share this view of interpersonal violence. As a consequence of breaching cultural norms on violence and gender, the men experience their violence as shameful. Shame is connected to fears of being judged and rejected. The experience of shame causes the men to be careful of telling others about their violence and seeking emotional support from friends and family in order to end violence. Some men’s experiences confirm their expected critical response, but most men receive relatively uncritical actual response. These responses are related to different narrative strategies that the men employ when disclosing their violence. The men contextualize their violence by, for instance, emphasizing their personal crisis, addiction, or their partner’s provocations. They also redefine their violence, for instance, they rather talk about their “aggression issues” than in terms of assault. When disclosing their violence, the men may also condemn their own violence by emphasizing that they understand that they have acted morally wrong and that they take full responsibility for their violence. Finally, the men may present themselves as remorseful by dealing with their “issues” and being in therapy. Through condemning their own actions as shameful, the men are able align with normative notions of masculinity and make themselves intelligible.

    Abstract [sv]

    Antologi om föräldraskap ur ett historiskt respektive sociologiskt perspektiv. Synen på föräldraskapet förändras över tid. Föräldraskapet formas av politik, ekonomisk styrning, vetenskap och allmänna normer. Samhällets syn på kön, klass och etnicitet spelar också in i bilden av vad ett bra föräldraskap är. Adoption, assisterad befruktning och ensamma mödrar är några teman som får belysa de senaste hundra årens syn på föräldraskap

    The second half of the ”second shift”: Swedish and US fathers’ domestic work responsibility upon return home2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite reports of an emerging notion of ‘involved’ fatherhood in both Sweden and the US, and the fact that fathers do more household work and childcare than ever, research shows that men still participate considerably less than women in household tasks. Rather than relying on men’s reports about fatherhood ideals and practices, this study analyzes how men’s parental practices unfold when coming home from work on weekday afternoons. Drawing on data collected from 30 dual-earner families in Southern California and 8 families in Sweden, this paper explores domestic work responsibility during the first hour when the father has come home as the second parent in the afternoon. We highlight an instance from each culture of a father returning home at about the same time as mother; father returning more than an hour after mother, but before dinner; and father returning home more than an hour after mother and after dinner has been served. Through these analyses we see that fathers can display different levels of responsibility for household and childcare tasks, ranging from strong amounts of self-initiation of involvement, to resistance to getting involved in helping mothers with tasks. Mothers are often positioned as the organizers of household work and childcare, with fathers reporting to their spouses.

    Andra män: Maskulinitet, normskapande och jämställdhet2012Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige är världens mest jämställda land, med världens mest jämställda män. Åtminstone framställs det ofta så, både i offentlig debatt och i vardagliga samtal. Denna bild av den normale svenska mannen upprätthålls dock genom att något annat - eller någon annan - skapas som avvikande, annorlunda, obegriplig eller sjuk.

    I den här antologin diskuteras hur det som uppfattas som goda handlingar används för att representera det gemensamma, medan våldsbrott, kvinnomisshandel och sexism förklaras som ett verk av Andra män. Är det därför som män som misshandlat kvinnor har så svårt att se sig själva som kvinnomisshandlare? Är det därför som fördomsfulla stereotyper av invandrarmän används som förklaring till brott eller sexism?

    Hur kommer det sig i så fall att även feministiska män skapas som avvikande? Och vilka föreställningar utmanas egentligen när äldre män beskriver sina växande bröst som sexuellt laddade och njutbara? Varför kan män med funktionsnedsättning inte debattera hjälp till sex utan att ses som kvinnoförtryckare? Eller varför är pedofilen så närvarande i samtal mellan unga män på ett behandlingshem, medan mäns sexuella våld mot barn är så frånvarande i svenska diskussioner om mäns föräldraskap och män i barnomsorg?

    I Andra män diskuterar forskare från antropologi, genusvetenskap, socialt arbete, sociologi och ungdomsvetenskap hur Andra män pekas ut som avvikande, men också hur dessa män hanterar utpekandet.

    Killars våld mot tjejer i nära relationer2013In: Unga och våld: en analys av maskulinitet och förebyggande verksamheter / [ed] Ingrid Bohlin, Stockholm: Ungdomsstyrelsen , 2013, p. 68-99Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Killar är betydligt oftare inblandade i olika våldshändelser jämfört med tjejer. I den här rapporten beskrivs killars och unga mäns användning av och utsatthet för våld samt hur detta samspelar med deras attityder till jämställdhet och maskulinitet. Man beskriver också det arbete som görs för att förebygga killars och unga mäns våld.Våld är påtagligt en del av ungas vardag. Mycket av det våld som omger unga är relativt lindrigt och betraktas som en del av vardagen - det har normaliserats. Framförallt både utsätts unga killar för misshandel och utsätter andra för det. Tjejer är istället i betydligt större utsträckning utsatta för sexualbrott. Även om inte alla unga är inblandade i allvarligare händelser så berörs de ändå av att våldet ständigt är närvarande i skolan, på fritiden och i hemmet.

    Fatherhood and youth sports: A balancing act between care and expectations2012In: Gender & Society, ISSN 0891-2432, E-ISSN 1552-3977, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 639-664Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Youth sports have been recognized as an arena for men to meet increased cultural expectations of being involved in their children’s lives. Indeed, in contrast to other child care practices, many men are eager to take part in their children’s organized sports. Drawing on an ethnographic study of middle-class families in the United States, this study examines how men juggle two contrasting cultural models of masculinity when fathering through sports—a performance-oriented orthodox masculinity that historically has been associated with sports and a caring, inclusive masculinity that promotes the nurturing of one’s children. Through a detailed analysis of how fathers’ sports involvement unfolds on the ground, we show how men, in order to portray themselves as “good” fathers, attempt to strike a balance between pushing their children to excel and supporting them regardless of their performance. We propose that although men may value inclusive masculinity when fathering through youth sports, at the same time they exercise orthodox masculinity in other domestic domains.

    Sociologins teoretiker2014Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sociologi är studiet av samhället och människan i samhället. Med sociologins hjälp kan vi förstå hur människor ser på sig själva, hur de relaterar till varandra, hur de organiserar sig och hur samhället förändras. Vi kan också lära oss hur sociala problem skapas och hur ojämlikhet och förtryck reproduceras. Att studera sociologi innebär att hela tiden ha blicken riktad åt två håll: utåt mot pågående sociala förändringar, och inåt mot de teorier och begrepp som utvecklats inom sociologin.

    Ämnet har en lång och rik idétradition. Alltsedan sociologin växte fram som en egen disciplin under 1800-talet har enskilda tänkare och teoretiker varit viktiga för utvecklandet av begrepp och tankemodeller. För att förstå och tillägna sig dessa begrepp och modeller krävs oftast kunskap om respektive tänkares hela teoribygge. Sociologins teoretiker presenterar fjorton tänkare som har varit, och fortfarande är, centralfigurer inom sociologin. I varje kapitel beskrivs och diskuteras de centrala teorierna och begreppen hos en enskild sociologisk teoretiker, liksom teoretikerns betydelse för sociologin idag.

    Boken vänder sig främst till studenter inom sociologi och andra samhälls- och beteendevetenskaper som möter sociologisk teori för första gången.

    The beauty of blood?: Self-injury and ambivalence in an Internet community2011In: Journal of Youth Studies, ISSN 1367-6261, E-ISSN 1469-9680, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 279-294Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present article analyzes how young self-injuring women and men construct themselves as 'cutters.' The study draws on observations of a Swedish Internet community connected to self-injurious behavior and departs from a poststructuralist framework in order to analyze how members position themselves and others in relation to cultural discourses on self-injury. Two main discourses are identified in the Web community: the 'normalizing' and the 'pathologizing' discourses, which give contrasting versions of self-injury, self-cutters, and their scarred bodies. Within the normalizing discourse, self-injurious behavior is regarded as a legitimate practice for dealing with mental health problems, 'cutters' are resilient, and their blood and scars are beautiful. In contrast, within the pathologizing discourse self-injurious behavior is understood as morally reprehensible, self-cutters are pathological, and their bodies are repulsive. In the Web community, members invoke both discourses, which leads to ambivalent subject positions. This study shows that the seemingly contradictory subject positions of the two discourses in fact are interdependent on each other as members draw on both the normalizing and the pathologizing discourses in order to become 'authentic cutters.'

    Hegemonic masculinity and beyond: 40 years of research in Sweden2012In: Men and Masculinities, ISSN 1097-184X, E-ISSN 1552-6828, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 31-55Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the status of the concept of hegemonic masculinity in research on men and boys in Sweden, and how it has been used and developed. Sweden has a relatively long history of public debate, research, and policy intervention in gender issues and gender equality. This has meant, in sheer quantitative terms, a relatively sizeable corpus of work on men, masculinities, and gender relations. There is also a rather wide diversity of approaches, theoretically and empirically, to the analysis of men and masculinities. The Swedish national context and gender equality project is outlined. This is followed by discussion of three broad phases in studies on men and masculinities in Sweden: the 1960s and 1970s before the formulation of the concept of hegemonic masculinity; the 1980s and 1990s when the concept was important for a generation of researchers developing studies in more depth; and the 2000s with a younger generation committed to a variety of feminist and gender critiques other than those associated with hegemonic masculinity. The following sections focus specifically on how the concept of hegemonic masculinity has been used, adapted, and indeed not used, in particular areas of study: boys and young men in family and education; violence; and health. The article concludes with review of how hegemonic masculinity has been used in Swedish contexts, as: gender stereotype, often out of the context of legitimation of patriarchal relations; "Other" than dominant, white middle-class "Swedish," equated with outmoded, nonmodern, working-class, failing boy, or minority ethnic masculinities; a new masculinity concept and practice, incorporating some degree of gender equality; and reconceptualized and problematized as a modern, heteronormative, and subject-centered concept.

    Hegemonic masculinity: combining theory and practice in gender interventions2015In: Culture, Health and Sexuality, ISSN 1369-1058, E-ISSN 1464-5351, Vol. 17, p. 96-111Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of hegemonic masculinity has been used in gender studies since the early-1980s to explain mens power over women. Stressing the legitimating power of consent (rather than crude physical or political power to ensure submission), it has been used to explain mens health behaviours and the use of violence. Gender activists and others seeking to change mens relations with women have mobilised the concept of hegemonic masculinity in interventions, but the links between gender theory and activism have often not been explored. The translation of hegemonic masculinity into interventions is little examined. We show how, in South Africa and Sweden, the concept has been used to inform theoretically-based gender interventions and to ensure that men are brought into broader social efforts to build gender equity. We discuss the practical translational challenges of using gender theory broadly, and hegemonic masculinity in particular, in a Swedish case study, of the intervention Machofabriken [The Macho Factory], and illustrate how the concept is brought to life in this activist work with men. The concept has considerable practical application in developing a sustainable praxis of theoretically grounded interventions that are more likely to have enduring effect, but evaluating broader societal change in hegemonic masculinity remains an enduring challenge.

    Parent involvement in childrens homework in American and Swedish dual-earner families2009In: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, E-ISSN 1879-1387, Vol. 41, no 8, p. 1576-1595Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes parent involvement by employing ethnographic methods and discourse analysis of parent-child talk about homework. We juxtapose what is often presented as a straightforward and unproblematic concept of parent involvement in education policy and research with actual instances of the day-to-day practices and reported experiences of parent involvement in childrens homework in the U.S. and Sweden. Our analyses show that parent involvement may be either parent or child initiated, and varies widely according to how much homework the child is assigned, the childs orientation to homework and a number of other factors. Analyses demonstrate that parents become involved in two main ways: 1. through anticipating and planning the activity of homework and 2. by directly participating in the accomplishment of the homework task itself. We additionally highlight in the paper that there is an inherent tension between a parents responsibility for homework and the childs responsibility for homework, and that parent involvement can cause tension in communication in the parent-child relationship.

    Children’s voices in research with children exposed to intimate partner violence: A critical review2017In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 42-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.
