    Introduction2010In: Norm-Struggles: Sexualities in Contentions / [ed] Martinsson, Lena; Reimers, Eva, Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing , 2010, p. 1-12Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    'Norm Struggles' explores and challenges normativity in general and heteronormativity in particular. A common trait in all chapters is the focus on contradictions, changes, disruptions and uncertainties that follow with different norms and structuring forces. The authors discuss and explore how norms are produced, and reproduced but also disrupted, subverted and changed. The chapters are based on observations from different settings such as preschools, schools, universities, factories, social welfare, popular culture, passenger ships, and the fire service. They are also based on observations from different countries - Lithuania, Canada, USA, Sweden, Finland, and Great Britain. The book presents studies of media, policies, machines, organisations, academic sexual theory, and the ongoing constructions of nations and nationalities.

    Skola i normer2014Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Skola i normer granskar hur normer för hur man ska vara och bete sig upprepas och utmanas av elever och lärare i skolan, på lärarutbildningen och i skolans värdegrundsarbete. Genom föreställningar om normalitet skapas också det Andra, det som inte ryms innanför normens gränser och som därför stängs ute. Samtidigt uppstår alltid motsägelser som ger möjligheter till motstånd.

    I denna nya upplaga har perspektiven vidgats och normbegreppet används för att belysa fler aspekter av hur normer verkar. Förutom normer om genus, ålder och sexualitet, diskuterar författarna på ett tydligare sätt också rasifiering och klass. Under senare år har betydelsen av dessa normativa processer blivit allt mer påtaglig, både i skolans värld och i samhället i stort. Ytterligare en skillnad är att förskolan, fritids, grundskolan, gymnasiet och högskolan diskuteras som delar i och konsekvenser av globala och nationella normstrider.

    Towards a Disharmonious Pluralism: Discourse Analysis of Official Discourses on Social Diversity2007In: Problematizing Identity: Everyday Struggles in Language, Culture, and Education / [ed] Angel. M. Y. Lin, New York and London: Lawrence Erlbaum Ass. , 2007, p. 51-65Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book argues that identity as a term needs to be problematized, not taken for granted for both the risks and the potential that the concept offers to educators for understanding issues of social inequality and how social inequality is being reproduced, and for exploring possible alternative ways educators can work with identity de/formation processes to seek to break the social reproduction structures mediated through identity fixing and essentialization. It provides some of the meta-language and theoretical, analytical tools to embark on such a practice of making the familiar strange, problematizing the taken-for-granted, and uncovering the linguistic, discursive, and cultural processes that serve to subordinate some people while privileging others. The chapters are organized around three themes: Identity, Class, and Difference; Gender, Ethnicity, and Education; and Gender, Ethnicity, and Language. The diverse sociocultural contexts in which the data and analyses are situated help to illustrate symbolic struggles and identity politics that are being engaged in by peoples in different cultures, languages, and societies of the world, offering insights from multidisciplinary, trans-cultural, and trans-local perspectives. By offering a comprehensive integration and clarification/ delineation of the different ways identity has been thought about and used in different theoretical traditions, and discussing the implications of different theoretical senses of "identity" for language educators, this volume will be useful to undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and educators in sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, discourse analysis, sociology, education, gender studies, and cultural and media studies.

    A Historical Overview: Care and Education Intersecting with Status and Class in Swedish Childminder Education 1975-20112015In: Nordisk Barnehageforskning, ISSN 1890-9167, E-ISSN 1890-9167, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From a perspective of status and class, this paper delineates changes in Swedish childminder education. The data are policy documents, documents from childminder training, and interviews with educators. The analysis is informed by post-structural theory. The study shows that the status of the childminder program has shifted between high and low status, and led toward differently classed life trajectories at different times. One reason for these variations is that the emphasis in childcare has shifted from care to teaching. This has at times increased the status of the education and the vocation, but also subverted the demand for childminders.

    A Reasonable Grief - discursive constructions of grief in a public conversation on raising the shipwrecked M/MS Estonia2003In: Mortality statistics. Cause, ISSN 0265-9670, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 325-341Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper employs a debate in Swedish newspapers regarding the fate of the corpses from the shipwrecked M/S (motor-ship) Estonia as a case study, in order to demonstrate how different discourses on grief construct a normative way of mourning. The theoretical vantage point is a discursive perspective on grief where different discourses are regarded as resources and limitations for how to express and make sense of bereavement. It maintains that what are to be considered as normal or deviant are social and cultural constructions, not ontological facts to detect. The analysis demonstrates a notion of normal grief as grief work that moves through a process from emotional reaction to rational reflection, and in which ritual practices play an important part. The study illustrates how negotiations regarding grief and mourning draw on different discourses. It also elucidates how a specific notion of grief is constructed as normal and legitimate, at the same time as other manifestations of grief are made abnormal and deviant.

    Asexuell heteronormativitet?2008In: Skola i normer / [ed] Lena Martinsson & Eva Reimers, Malmö: Gleerups , 2008, p. 97-130Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Skola i normer granskar hur normer för hur man ska vara och bete sig upprepas och utmanas av elever och lärare i skolan, på lärarutbildningen och i skolans värdegrundsarbete. Författarna fokuserar på sexualitet, men diskuterar också ålder, kön, klass och nationalitet.En genomgående tanke i boken är att föreställningar om normalitet skapar det som inte ryms innanför normens gränser, de Andra eller det Andra . De leder till utestängningar där det annorlunda definieras bort som något främmade och avlägset. Samtidigt uppstår alltid motsägelser, både i skolans vardagliga praktik och i dess styrdokument, som skapar möjligheter till motstånd.Skola i normer riktar sig främst till lärarstudenter och lärarutbildare, men också till alla som intresserar sig för hur makthierarkier och motstånd skapas i skolan. Bokens författare är alla lärarutbildare. Lena Martinsson är professor i genusvetenskap vid Institutionen för kulturvetenskaper, Göteborgs universitet.

    Discourses of education and constitutions of class: public discourses on education in Swedish PBS television2014In: Discourse. Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, ISSN 0159-6306, E-ISSN 1469-3739, Vol. 35, no 4, p. 540-553Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on post-structural perspectives and analysis of television programs on education, the article investigates the public educational discourse in Sweden. It shows how a dominant neoliberal educational discourse is articulated together with a discourse of equal education, where the two discourses influence and subvert each other so that neither becomes totally hegemonic. Taking point of departure in the neoliberal emphasis on the individual, not the least concerning school choice and in relation to the significance of class for educational success, the analysis focus on the constitution of classed positions. The study reveals constitutions of class in which race, place, gender, economy, and agency are intertwined, such that the schools and the students are attributed both different status and differing subject positions in terms of future economic trajectories. The conclusions drawn are that in the public conversation about the organization and goal of compulsory education it is important to be aware of the discursive and political contexts in which the discussions take place, and that class matter in the educational assemblage in the form of economic subjectivities constituted in a web of intersecting notions about differing preconditions and outcomes of education.

    Dopet som kult och kultur: Bilder av dopet i dopsamtal och föräldraintervjuer1995Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    This study of Swedish secularisation and religiousness presents analyses of discourses related to the ritual of infant baptism. The aim of the study is to shed light upon the ambiguous image of Swedish religiousness. On the one hand, Sweden is regarded as one of the most secularised countries in the world. On the other hand, more than 90% of the inhabitants are members of the Church of Sweden, and participate in life-cycle rites such as infant baptism, weddings and funerals. Through discourse analyses of baptismal conversations and interviews with parents and priests the study shows how people verbally construct the practice of infant baptism as a meaningful and important event in their lives. These analyses shed light upon the conception of Swedish secularisation.lle analyses show that people, who by themselves and others are considered secularised, participate in and make use of a rite in the same way as people participate in and make use of corresponding rites in societies that are not considered to be secularised. Different discourse strategies employed by the priests are interpreted as being related to different theological views of the nature of Christian faith. Explicitly and implicitly expressed basic conceptions indicate an ambiguous picture of basic views in connection with baptism. These views are discussed in the light of the two aspects of the Church of Sweden as a carrier of both cult and culture, of both Christian faith and fundamental social values and practices. The positive evaluation of the Church of Sweden is connected to the cultural aspect of the Church of Sweden, and the negative evaluation to the cultic aspect. The basic accounting practices employed by priests and parishioners reflect a high value of honesty and authenticity. These norms can be related to the tension in infant baptism between the cultic and the cultural aspect. The study shows that Sweden is secularised in the sense that values such as personal responsibility, freedom and authenticity are highly valued, not only by people at large, but also by the Church of Sweden. Sweden is also secularised in the sense that Christian faith is understood, not as trust, but as personal intellectual conviction. On the other hand, the way people participate in and make use of the ritual of infant baptism show that they do this in a fundamentally religious way; that is as an act of integration, loyalty and trust. The religious discourses are secularised, but not the religious practices.

    Economic and Political Subjectivities in Public Discourses on Education2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Purposes

    The present paper employs public discourses, in the form of policy documents from the OECD, EU and the UN, news and popular media, to explore how economic and political subjectivities simultaneously emerge and are obfuscated in the ubiquitous discourses on education that are dominated by neoliberal ideas (Ball, 2006; Buras & Apple, 2005).

     Perspectives and theoretical framework

    One point of departure are the notions of “interdiscursivity” and “medialization of politics,” which point to how discourses are rearticulated in different contexts, drawing on each other, and thereby both affirming and displacing each other, and to how politics is made intelligible in public media (Fairclough, 1995; 2000). Another point of departure is the notions of assemblages and flight lines (Deleuze & Guattari, 2004). These concepts enable us to understand the neoliberal education discourse as an open, ambiguous and undecided assemblage, and to explore how this assemblage makes possible differing educational aims and subject positions.

     Methods

    The argument is based on discourse analysis of transnational policy documents and news and popular media from different nations. The aim of the analysis is to explore what economic and political subject positions are made possible in these different data sets.

     Results and Arguments

    Although the tenants of neoliberalism are dominant, they are not totally hegemonic. In both the policy documents and the public media data, there are simultaneous articulations of a neoliberal educational discourse and a discourse of education as a tool to enhance democracy and create social justice. Furthermore, these discourses inform and are often intertwined with each other. 

     The transnational policy documents predominantly articulate education as possibilities.

    There are, however, salient differences between the OECD and EU documents, and the UN documents. Although all emphasize what education can do for the nations, the former stress education as a prerequisite for economic progress, whereas the latter stress eliminating poverty, fostering democracy, and empowering individuals and subordinated groups. In this way, the OECD and EU documents constitute subjectivities in relation to a market focused on how learners can contribute to a growing economy, whereas the UN documents constitute political subjects who can contribute to society through political interventions.

     News and public media are dominated by articulations of an education system in a state of “crisis”. The arguments for these representations and the solutions brought forward are drawn from a neoliberal discourse focused on competition, marketization, free choice, and private initiatives, but there is also a parallel and intersecting discourse of education as a means to give subordinated subjects opportunities for a better life. However, these discourses mainly point to economic rather than to political subjectivities, who hold their future in their own hands by making the right choices and working hard. This is not completely unambiguous, as media representations, especially in the popular media, also depict resistance and constitute subjectivities who subvert the neoliberal hegemony and who insist on the political (Mouffe, 2005). These subversions open the door to notions of education as practices that not only stabilize, but also destabilize and change society.

    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln är en diskursanlys av tre tidningars artiklar kring mordet på Fadime Sahindal 2002. Det är en intersektionell analys som visar hur kön, etnicitet, kultur och klass samverkar såväl i konstruktionen av "vi" och "dom" som i hur händelsen görs begriplig och meningsfull.

    Homonationalism in teacher education - productions of schools as heteronormative national places2017In: Irish Educational Studies, ISSN 0332-3315, E-ISSN 1747-4965, Vol. 36, no 1, p. 91-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper interrogates how teacher education and schools are produced as places for simultaneous and intertwined norms of nationality and norms of sexuality. Drawing on data from observations at a Swedish teacher training programme, the concepts of banal nationalism, homonationalism, and precarity are used in order to discuss productions of sexual, national, and cultural subjects. The analysis indicates that homonationalism in education produces tolerable queers together with intolerant migrants. In this way Sweden is produced as a homonormative nation in opposition to nations and subjects that are considered other. The concluding section suggests using investigations of homonationalism as a tool in teacher education in order to bring about more inclusive schools.

    Abstract [en]

    Death affects all aspects of life, it touches our emotions and influences our identity. Presenting a kaleidoscope of informative views of death, dying and human response, this book reveals how different disciplines contribute to understanding the theme of death. Drawing together new and established scholars, this is the first book among the studies of emotion that focuses on issues surrounding death, and the first among death studies which focuses on the issue of emotion. Themes explored include: themes of grief in the ties that bind the living and the dead, funerals, public memorials and the art of consolation, obituaries and issues of war and death-row, use of the internet in dying and grieving, what people do with cremated remains, new rituals of spiritual care in medical contexts, themes bounded and expressed through music, and more.

    Primary mourners and next-of-kin: how grief practices reiterate and subvert heterosexual norms2011In: Journal of Gender Studies, ISSN 0958-9236, E-ISSN 1465-3869, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 251-262Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses practices in connection with death and mourning. It argues that kinship is an ambiguous and contingent concept, and that rituals done in connection with death and mourning have consequences for how people are acknowledged as bereaved. The discussion is based on data from a Swedish study of bereavement. Besides evincing the salience in death practices of a notion of kinship based on conjugal relations and blood ties, the results of analysis of participant observations in a grief group and in-depth interviews with gay widowers reveal that the dominant kinship norm both constrain and enables differing positions as primary mourners. Drawing on Judith Butler and discourse theory, the study shows that claiming a position as bereaved can entail struggles concerning acknowledgement of kinship, and that examples of denunciation simultaneously stand out as resistance and subversion. To avoid marginalizing prospective mourners, it is important to be aware of how these practices of kinship and grief work together.

    Representations of an honor killing2007In: Feminist Media Studies, ISSN 1468-0777, E-ISSN 1471-5902, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 239-255Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study uses discourse analysis to examine representations found in Swedish newspapers of the murder of a Kurdish woman perpetrated by her father. It discloses representations of a media event that reiterate intersecting norms concerning ethnicity, gender and social class, which together delineate boundaries and significant core values for a hegemonic notion of the Swedish. Notions of ethnicity, class, and gender are articulated together, forming a dichotomy between a modern, tolerant Sweden and an obsolete, conceited other. In putting forward integration as the solution to honor-motivated male violence against women, the discourse presumes and reiterates the Swedish as signified by gender equality and, because social class and ethnicity are articulated together, integration becomes synonymous with social mobility. By presenting a culturalized interpretation of the killing, the discourse conceals possible connections between the male violence perpetrated by immigrants and the more common violence perpetrated by non-immigrants.

    Skola i normer2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Skola i normer granskar hur normer för hur man ska vara och bete sig upprepas och utmanas av elever och lärare i skolan, på lärarutbildningen och i skolans värdegrundsarbete. Författarna fokuserar på sexualitet, men diskuterar också ålder, kön, klass och nationalitet.En genomgående tanke i boken är att föreställningar om normalitet skapar det som inte ryms innanför normens gränser, de Andra eller det Andra . De leder till utestängningar där det annorlunda definieras bort som något främmade och avlägset. Samtidigt uppstår alltid motsägelser, både i skolans vardagliga praktik och i dess styrdokument, som skapar möjligheter till motstånd.Skola i normer riktar sig främst till lärarstudenter och lärarutbildare, men också till alla som intresserar sig för hur makthierarkier och motstånd skapas i skolan. Bokens författare är alla lärarutbildare. Lena Martinsson är professor i genusvetenskap vid Institutionen för kulturvetenskaper, Göteborgs universitet. Hon är också verksam som lärarutbildare.Eva Reimers är professor i pedagogiskt arbete och verksam vid Institutionen för samhälls- och välfärdsstudier, Linköpings universitet. Hon är också verksam som lärarutbildare.

    The Productivity of Death: Post-human Perspectives on Death as a rupture in the everyday life2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    According to many sociologist (cf. Baumann 1992, Berger 1969, Davies 1997, 2005), death reveals the precariousness of not only the individual human subject, but of all social worlds. Thus, the point of departure for sociological and cultural studies on death is often the notion of death as obliteration and the end of life as we know it. This notion serves as point of departure for studies on how individuals and collectives develop cultural practices in order to negotiate the irrevocability and finality of life that death implies. In this way, death serves as the target for the development of religion, of funeral practices, of memorials and memorialisation, of a plethora of artefacts, and of formations of societies and nations.

    In this presentation I want to turn things around. Instead of seeing death as the object and target for social and cultural practices, my point of departure is the agency and productivity of death. Drawing on post-humanist theory (Deleuze and Guattari (1988, Latour 2005), I want make trouble with the common dichotomous notion of death and life. Moving away from a conception of death and life as each other’s opposites, I want to explore death as an assemblage, produced by multiple elements and phenomena, as well as producing multiple elements and phenomena. Specifically, I want to shed light on the productivity of death. Using examples from my different studies on death, bereavement, and memorialisation (Reimers 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2012), my argument is that assemblages of death produces new relations, new becomings, and therefore should not be seen as neither the end or the opposite of life. Death is becoming.

    Education and Political Subjectivity in Neoliberal Times and Places: Emergences of norms and possibilities2016Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Education and Political Subjectivities in Neoliberal Times and Places investigates the conditions and possibilities for political subjectivities to emerge in international educational contexts, where neoliberal norms are repeated, performed and transformed.

    Through demonstrating the possibility of political subjectivities, this book argues that neoliberalism should neither be considered post-political, nor a natural law by which educational practices have to abide.

    This book considers how political subjectivities are made possible in education in spite of dominant neoliberal  norms. Chapters address key theoretical discussions surrounding these different, sometimes contradicting, norms and their relationship to education, economy and politics. This innovative approach considers diverse educational and political initiatives in the wake of new public management, postcolonial perspectives on neoliberal education, and educational practices and critical possibilities. The book advocates understanding and enacting democracy as an experiment, based on the conception that democracy is constantly constructed and constitutes a transformative process in society in general as well as in education.

     This book advances the argument that there is still room for political subjectivity in spite of the dominance of neoliberal educational governance. It will appeal to researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of higher education, education policy and politics, sociology of education and comparative and international education, as well as those interested in neoliberalism, new public management, and inequality.
