    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.

    Affirmative Old Age: the Ageing body and Feminist theories on Difference2013In: International Journal of Ageing and Later Life, ISSN 1652-8670, E-ISSN 1652-8670, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 11-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Discourses on old age and ageing are framed in narrow and binary ways, either as a decline narrative or through discourses of positive and successful ageing. The decline narrative, on the one hand, is highly centred on the decline of the ageing body as frail, leaky and unbounded, and on how old age is characterized by non-productivity, increasing passivity and dependency. Discourses on successful ageing, on the other hand, rely heavily on neo-liberal imperatives of activity, autonomy and responsibility. In successful ageing the specificities of ageing bodies are largely overlooked while the capacity of the old person to retain a youthful body, e.g. with the aid of sexuopharmaceuticals, is celebrated. 

     

    This article argues for the need of a theorizing of old age that goes beyond the binaries of decline and success. Drawing on the work of feminist corpomaterialists Rosi Braidotti and Elisabeth Grosz, the article proposes affirmative old age as an alternative conceptualization of old age. As a theoretical project, affirmative old age aims to acknowledge the material specificities of the ageing body and is an attempt to theorize the ageing body in terms of difference but without understanding it as a body marked by decline, lack or negation.

    Ancient monuments, mature men and those popping amphetamine: researching the lives of older men2007In: NORMA : Nordic journal of masculinity studies, ISSN 1890-2138, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 86-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research attention on older men and masculinities has been relatively scant. What has been written on older men has, however, often lacked a feminist and critical perspective. This article outlines some of the previous research and suggests a turn to feminist and queer theory to grasp the complexity of older men-s lives more fully. A crucial issue is how old age both may be a source of power for men and may marginalise men. Drawing on interviews with two men aged 73 and 75, and theoretical insights from gender studies, the article discusses the themes of bodies, sexuality, maturity and older men-s construction of the self as autonomous and individual. Clearly, the lives of older men must be understood intersectionally whereby ability and disability play key roles. In conclusion, the article suggests a turn a way from an assimilationist approach to ageing and older people, and towards seeing the possibilities of norm-breaking by older men.

    Backward, Dumb and Violent Hillbillies?: Rural Geographies and Intersectional Studies on Intimate Partner Violence2013In: Affilia, ISSN 0886-1099, E-ISSN 1552-3020, Vol. 28, no 4, p. 350-365Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Urban and rural geographies should be further included in feminist intersectional research on intimate partner violence. The article reviews existing research on the challenges facing rural victims of IPV. This research makes visible the specific problems rurality imposes on victims of IPV. However, research on rural IPV risks being misused and subsequently reinforcing othering and stereotypes of rurality and rural inhabitants. The article suggests that researchers alternate between intra- and anti-categorical approaches. On the one hand rural victims of IPV should be analysed as a neglected point of intersection, and on the other the diversity of ruralities should be acknowledged.

    Being there for my grandchild: grandparents’ responses to their grandchildren’s exposure to domestic violence2016In: Child & Family Social Work, ISSN 1356-7500, E-ISSN 1365-2206, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 136-145Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Grandparents whose grandchildren are exposed to domestic violence are faced with some unique challenges in their grandparenting, which have thus far been little discussed in research. This paper discusses the narratives of 10 Swedish grandparents whose grandchildren have been exposed to violence towards their mother. The aim was to explore grandparents’ narrations of their responses in the face of violence, and their understanding of the role they play in their gran- dchildren’s social networks. Two significant responses are discussed: ‘being there’ and ‘acknowledging the independence and self- determination of the adult children’. Grandparents experienced these responses as contradictory and felt powerless when it came to their possibilities to protect their grandchildren. The paper suggests that grandparents could be a resource for domestic violence services, and social work practice needs to assess the roles of grandparents of children exposed to domestic violence. Social workers should con- sider the challenges these grandparents are facing and what support they may need in order to support their grandchildren.

    Getting Intimate: A Feminist Analysis of Old Age, Masculinity and Sexuality2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on the intersections of masculinity, old age and sexuality from the perspectives of old men themselves, how they understand and experience sex and sexuality in later life. The study uses qualitative in-depth interviews and body diaries, an exploratory method that asked men write about their bodies in everyday life. Twenty-two men, born between 1922 and 1942, participated in the study. The aim of the thesis is two-fold: firstly, to study sexual subjectivities of old men, how old men articulate and make meaning around sexuality in later life. Secondly, the study aims to explore theoretically what a male body may become in relation to ageing; in what ways the ageing male body could be a site for rethinking masculinity and the male body. This aim was inspired by feminist theories in dialogue with the deleuzian concept becoming. Similarly to gender, age is understood to take shape and become intelligible in social and cultural contexts. Furthermore, the thesis stresses the significance of the specificities of the ageing body to the shaping of masculinity, sexuality and subjectivity. The body is therefore discussed as an “open materiality”, beyond the binaries of culture and nature/materiality.

    This thesis discusses the concepts intimacy and touch as central to how old men’s sexual subjectivities take shape, allowing for alternative conceptualisations of sexuality beyond erection and intercourse. Intimacy and touch are understood and discussed in several different ways. By orienting themselves to touch and intimacy the old men emerged as more mature, unselfish and with more serene sexual desires. This also involved them distancing themselves from the younger man/other men, whom they perceived as more selfish, inconsiderate and with stronger sexual desires. Intimacy and touch could in this respect be understood as resources for shaping desirable heterosexual masculinity. An orientation to intimacy and touch enabled old men to appear as neither asexual nor as “dirty” old men. But the study also suggests that a turn to intimacy and touch may open up possibilities for rethinking and reconfiguring sexuality, masculinity and the male body. The ageing body then need not be understood as an obstacle but as an enabling site that provides opportunities for intimacy and touch. Moreover, the thesis presents affirmative old age as an alternative conceptualisation of old age, beyond both the discourses of successful ageing and the discourses of old age as negativity and decline. As a theory of difference and bodily specificity, affirmative old age may be of interest for further feminist theorising.

    Getting intimate: Old age, masculinity and new (?) heterosexual morphologies2009In: GEXcel Work in Progress Report, Volume V: Proceedings from GEXcel Theme 2: Deconstructing the Hegemony of Men and Masculinities,  Autumn 2008 / [ed] GEXcel Theme 2: Deconstructing the Hegemony of Men and Masculinities, Autumn 2008, Linköping, 2009, p. 61-78Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is in many ways telling and illustrative for a prevailing discourse on older men’s sexuality as lifelong; in which sexuality is reinforced and constructed as something that despite ageing persists. Literature on sexuality and later life often point to the obfuscation of older people’s sexuality and how the neglect of sexuality in later life (in research and elsewhere) render older asexual. A shift in discourse can however be identified in which older people’s sexuality, from being an unthinkable issue, increasingly is regarded as lifelong and part of a healthy and positive ageing. What the article on Sven Tumba conveys is, however, how sexuality is by and large equated with erection and heterosexual penetrative sex, something which is in line with how discourses of lifelong and healthy ageing are often constructed. Impotence is posited as the major threat to continued sexual activity in later life, and sexuality is hence conceptualised in a narrow way and largely rooted in male experience.

    Just feeling a naked body close to you: Men, Sexuality and Intimacy in Later Life2013In: Sexualities, ISSN 1363-4607, E-ISSN 1461-7382, Vol. 16, no 3/4, p. 261-282Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite an increasing emphasis on sexuality as lifelong and part of healthy ageing, the voices of older men and women are seldom heard. Based on qualitative interviews with Swedish heterosexual men aged 67-87, this article discusses how men make sense of later life sexuality through narratives of intimacy. In the interviews, intimacy is described as something more or other than sexual intercourse, involving both touch and feelings of love and closeness in a committed relationship. Inspired by the work of Ahmed (The Cultural Politics of Emotion, 2004) the article discusses how narratives of intimacy shape the sexual subjectivities and bodies of older men. Intimacy is discussed as making sexual subjectivities and bodies possible beyond a coital imperative. As such, intimacy is of potential use to anti-ageist and feminist theorizing. However, intimacy is also discussed as a possible reinforcement of respectable heterosexuality. The article concludes that intimacy may be a way for older heterosexual men to navigate between current binary discourses of asexual old age and 'sexy seniors'.

    Lita till lusten?: Heterosexuella äldre män och innebörder av lust2010In: Livslinjer: berättelser om ålder, genus och sexualitet / [ed] Fanny Ambjörnsson och Maria Jönsson, Göteborg: Makadam , 2010, 1, p. 48-71Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur gammal är du?Vad ska du bli när du blir stor?Lever du fortfarande ensam?Du ska nog se att det går över.När ska du stadga dig och skaffa barn?Man är inte en dag äldre än man känner sig.Är du inte för gammal för att klä dig sådär!Man behöver väl inte se ut som en tant bara för att man fyllt femtio!Så tänkte jag också i din ålder.Livslinjer handlar om åldrandet och framtiden. Om de förväntningar som sätter gränser för hur en levnadsbana kan se ut i vår samtid. Om de gränser som får oss att inte vilja framstå som omogna eller lastgamla, som gubbtjyvar eller snorungar. Men den handlar också omde möjligheter som finns att påverka och rita om våra livslinjer. Om hur vi aktivt kan använda oss av föreställningar om ålder för att förskjutagränser och vidga vårt utrymme. Fokus ligger på livslinjernas sexuella och genussprängande dimensioner, det vill säga hur genus och sexualitet skapas i relation till ålder och åldrande.I den här boken finner du till exempel en analys av femåringars föreställningar om sin framtid och vad det innebär att vara kär, en undersökning av äldre mäns lust och sexualitet, en studie av åldersmotstånd bland queerkids och en analys av osamtidigt åldrande i Kerstin Thorvalls författarskap.Skribenterna är forskare med olika ämnesmässig bakgrund --antropologi, litteraturvetenskap, kulturgeografi, etnologi, idéhistoria -- från olika lärosäten i landet.

    "Man har ju lärt sig ett och annat”: Äldre män och berättelser om sexualitet, mognad och förändring2012In: Andra män : Maskuliniteter, normskapande och jämställdhet / [ed] Lucas Gottzén, Rickard Jonsson, Malmö: Gleerups Utbildning AB, 2012, 1, p. 45-63Chapter 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.

    The Old, the Ugly and the Queer: thinking old age in relation to queer theory2008In: Graduate journal of Social Science, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 117-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     This article seeks to use queer theory as a social theory and a critical challenge to normalcy all together to theorise old age in gender studies. Additionally the article discusses some implications of bringing old age into queer theory, where the able body, older person-s sexualities in relation to heteronormativity, to mention a few things, are central for future queer theory. The red thread of the article is how the anti-social turn in queer theory and embracing shame may be used to critique the prevailing discourses of old age as either -successful- where the older person should be active and independent or old age as decline and decay. Queer theoretical notions such as failure and the abject are used to theorise old age and ageing bodies, but the article also discusses how some flexible bodies can overcome failures given class, sexuality, ablebodiedness and race etc. To perform in the Butlerian sense an intelligible and desired self is dependent both on gender, sexuality and age and this is in effect relying on certain modes of temporality. Queer temporality may thus challenge what is considered normal and good ageing but also reveal the taken for grantedness of normative time. The article concludes that by thinking queer theory and old age together a resurrection of knowledges is made possible, outside the good, successful and respectable old age.
