    Abstract [sv]

    Pia, som inte riktigt förstått varför Peter gjort den där handbromsvändningen och inte förstår varför de har så bråttom, försöker bestämma sig för hur hon ska agera. Hon känner sig rädd av den höga farten bland alla bilar och människor och önskar att Peter ville ta det lite lugnare. Hon känner hur skräcken griper tag i henne men kan inte på ett medvetet plan bli klok på om det är den höga farten som skrämmer henne eller om det är tanken på att säga till Peter att sakta farten" (Maria Gustafsson i ett kapitel om hjärnan i boken).

    Kör så det ryker!: Hälsorisker i samspelet mellan män,maskulinitet och bil2010In: Genus och Kön inom medicin- och vårdutbildningar / [ed] Wijma, Barbro, Smirthwaithe, Goldina och Swahnberg, Katarina, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2010Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kvinnor och män är delvis lika, delvis olika. Det innebär att kvinnor och män både har behov av likadan behandling och av behandling som är anpassad till det egna könets förutsättningar. Denna antologi belyser kvinnors och mäns förutsättningar och behov inom en rad olika medicinska områden och tar upp både biologiska och sociala faktorer som påverkar hälsa och behandling. Den behandlar även den roll som kön spelar inom vårdens arbetsliv samt hur köns- och genusperspektiv kan integreras inom olika typer av medicin- och vårdutbildningar. Ett av bokens teman är våld, kränkningar och diskriminering, och inom ramen för detta behandlas några av de olika maktordningar som kommer till uttryck vid behandlingar inom hälso- och sjukvården. Antologin har en stor spännvidd när det gäller ämnen och författare. Förhoppningsvis ska den bredd som antologin uppvisar, leda fram till frågeställningar där läsaren utmanar sina förgivettaganden inom både genusvetenskap och mer traditionell medicin samt väcka nya frågor: Om könet snarare ses som en konstruktion än en fysisk realitet - kan då kvinnor lika gärna äta mediciner som är utprovade på män och opereras med metoder och verktyg anpassade till mäns fysiologi? Å andra sidan - hur objektiv är den naturvetenskapligt inriktade medicinska forskningen egentligen om man börjar granska den utifrån frågeställningar om perspektivval och genus? Antologin vänder sig till lärare på utbildningar inom medicin, hälsa och vård. Andra målgrupper är studenter på sådana utbildningar, vårdpersonal och en intresserad allmänhet.

    On Men and Cars: An Ethnographic Study of Gendered, Risky and Dangerous Relations2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well known that young men constitute a high-risk group in terms of accidents involving both themselves and others. But comparatively little is known about the roles of gender, masculinity and automobility in reproducing or subverting such particularly risky performances of identity. The study aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of how gender, primarily masculinity, is interrelated with car-related identities, practices and material constructions. Contributing with qualitative insights, this study explores the ways in which gendered individuals and cars co-constitute one another in a particular context, the community of Swedish car modifiers. By using an ethnographic approach, this thesis investigates the lives of young and middle-aged car enthusiasts who invest considerable time, money, skill and passion in modifying, showing and driving their cars. The material stems from fieldwork carried out at car shows, in cars, on online modified-car forums and in garages between 2006 and 2008. In total, 53 men and 14 women between the ages of 19 and 60 make up the informants.

    The study shows how gender, in particular masculinity, is reproduced and negotiated in the modifiers’ attempts to become “unique” subjects through making their own versions of the car. Cars are not only a means of self-expression and constructing identity, but serve to build community and regulate relations between, primarily, men through competition at car shows and when driving. The study examines the reproduction of craftsmanship as a purified ideal that distinguishes car modifiers as a “special kind” of men, a figure that takes its form through intersecting imaginaries of Swedishness, class and masculinity. To rely on one’s own ideas and hands represented a more authentic way of creating one’s dream car in a heavily commercialised culture. Constructions of masculinity in driving are explored in its profoundly embodied, emotional and dangerous aspects developed in the context of men, cars and risk-taking. The personalised car is shown to generate different forms of risk-taking, which are also productive of counter-discourses on dangerous and risky driving.

    Se upp - allt fler kvinnor kör som män!: Nollvisionen som diskurs och problemet män i trafiken2009In: Tidskrift för genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, no 2-3, p. 97-118Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is the first country in the world to have introduced the so-called Vision Zero (Nollvisionen). This is an ethical approach suggesting that road safety cannot be traded for mobility. Since the beginning of mass-motoring, men have been over-represented in traffic safety statistics, in terms of both ‘causing’ accidents and casualties. Against the background of the Swedish Vision Zero, it is quite extraordinary how little attention work on traffic safety has paid to men’s over-representation in Swedish fatal road accidents (90%), and (auto)mobility as a way of doing gender. The present article discusses how men and women driver subjects are produced through the Vision Zero discourse, with a particular focus on how men in traffic are constructed. This is important since such constructions and modes of address affect possible interventions and ‘solutions’ regarding road safety issues. Here I focus on three contemporary documents of policy making character or with general impact: first, the Governmental Act 2003 on road safety intervention; second, a report from the Swedish Road Administration which is applying a gender equality discourse on transport; and third a brochure issued by the Road Administration addressed to the everyday road user. These documents constitute case material that is illustrative of the Vision Zero as a generative apparatus of gender discourse. The article brings attention to the ambiguous ways in which the Vision Zero may, on the one hand, explicitly address men as problematic driver subjects, as an explicitly gendered high risk category; and, on the other, make men and masculine norms implicit through the rendering of young(er) driver subjects as problematic. This also involves pointing out women as an up and coming high risk category. To improve road safety, the discursive effects of this configuration suggest allocating responsibility partly to the ‘system’, partly to women driver subjects – in effect, to women who drive like men – rather than the men driver subjects.

    Spinning around the ”lycra-lout”2009In: Centrum med många riktningar: en vänbok till Gunilla Bjerén, Stockholm: Stockholms universitet , 2009, p. 11-24Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is politically and emotionally written in the vein of cycling, deeply intertwined with my own experiences of such a mundane, nevertheless risky, activity. Of late, cyclists have been regarded as disruptive and dangerous, and for at least a decade the cycling ”Lycra lout” has figured in Anglo-Saxon demonology. Simply put, ‘lycra lout’ is derogatory British slang for an arrogant, road-hogging cyclist supposedly sporty dressed up wearing lycra. In a Swedish context, we may talk of a similar figure, namely “cykelmarodören”, stylishly forcing his way through the busy streets of Stockholm city. Refusing wearing lycra, simply because it would make me look ridiculous, the joys I experience from scooting up the outer lane onto the oncoming traffic would nevertheless make me into a ‘lout’ - at least from the perspective of car drivers. Traffic, the scene of encounters through which I pedal my speedy bike affords not only excitements, it also brings relaxations. I write this text with a feeling of rest throughout my body –a welcomed reward the activity of cycling brings to wind up bodies located within academia. However, writing from the perspective of a male cyclist, this essay aims at bringing attention to risks and risk taking as a traditional aspect of performing masculine behaviour - to prove skill and potency - for example through sorting out a difficult and risky traffic situation.

    Den bioniske mannen på autoerotiska äventyr - mäns risktagande i trafikrummet2010In: Norma (Nordic Journal for Masculinity Studies), ISSN 1890-2138, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 27-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    “The bionic man goes autoerotic – theoretic keys towards a refined understanding of men’s risk taking in public space”

     

    Gender construction in relation to mobility and movement gives rise to intriguing questions regarding the interfaces between men, masculinity, technology, “danger” and risk-taking, especially when discussing issues of traffic safety. How can we conceptualize men’s risk taking practices within the traffic realm? By drawing on research from feminist science and technology studies, the authors suggest and develop the figuration the bionic man for how to understand cars and other mobile vehicles such as mopeds as extensions of the (male) body. The construction of masculinity is seen to be interlinked with the use and mastering of motor vehicles. This theoretical frame work is further analysed by introducing the concept of autoeroticism as a meaningful way for understanding the profound embodied and emotional relation between men, technologies of movement and risk taking. The authors argue that the emotional aspects of driving cars and riding mopeds need to be regarded as both vital and crucial aspects when studying men’s risk taking in traffic space.

    Feeling the Speed - the Social and Emotional Investments in Dangerous Road Practices2012In: Gender and Change: power, politics and everyday practices / [ed] Maria Jansdotter Samuelsson, Clary Krekula, Magnus Åberg, Karlstad: Karlstad University Press, 2012, p. 37-52Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on gender aims to contribute towards a better society with the help of scientific tools. Change is therefore a key concept in gender studies. With a wide range of theoretical frameworks, methodological approaches and empirical materials from Sweden, Norway and Iceland, this book investigates how gender relations are shaped, reproduced, and challenged. Collectively, the papers in this volume point to where we are heading in terms of gender relations. Where are the seeds to change, and how does power make possible or impede on change?

    Kör så det ryker! Teoretiska reflektioner om samspelen mellan män, maskulinitet, rumslighet och våldsam mobilitet2008In: Genusrelationer och förändringsprocesser: Nordisk feminism och genusforskning 2008,2008, 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Att förstå hur genus görs i relation till mobilitet ställer spännande frågor om gränssnitten mellan män, maskuliniteter, ålder, teknik, -farlighet- och risktagande, inte minst i förhållande till trafiksäkerhet, våld och kroppslig integritet. Feministisk teknologiforskning (FTS) och transportforskning med genusperspektiv uppmärksammar hur bilar eller mopeder kan förstås som en förlängning av (mans)kroppen där kopplingen till görande av maskulinitet är sammanvävt med användandet och bemästrandet av motorfordon. Mot bakgrund av nollvisionen är det dock uppseendeväckande hur lite trafiksäkerhetsarbetet uppmärksammat överrepresentationen av män som -vållande- av dödsolyckor (90 %) eller uppmärksammat (auto)mobilitet som ett sätt att göra kön. Texten tar upp mäns kroppslighet i trafiken med utgångspunkt i feministiska teorier om våld och teknologi, och knyts samman med en diskussion kring (auto)mobilitet. Bidraget öppnar upp för en kritisk diskussion kring bilismens normativa ställning, inte minst hur bilnormativiteten formar och skapar subjektiva upplevelser och identitet, samt hur praktiker knutna till dessa möjliggör och producerar våldsam mobilitet.

    Developing Disruptive Normcritical Innovation at Volvo: Final Report2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Framed by a theoretical understanding based  on key concepts such a preconfigured user and unexpected stakeholders,  the report presents the collaboration between Volvo Group Trucks Technology and Tema Genus, Linköping University,  which have initiated a  pilot project to foster disruptive norm critical innovation at Volvo. The aim has been to 1) further develop existing methods for initiating innovation by bringing in disruptive norm critical innovation methods into already existing ‘tool boxes for innovation’ at Volvo, 2) develop a particular tool box to enhance disruptive norm critical innovation across existing ‘tool boxes’, and 3) develop a disruptive norm critical innovation tool box targeting the leadership program at Volvo Trucks to enable better management and integration of norm critical innovation processes at Volvo. The aims were fulfilled through two workshops, based on radical models for democratic discussion and unfolding of social fantasy: the future workshop and the world café.

    Sweden National Reports on Men's Practices - Reports on Research, Statistical information, Law and Policy Addressing Men's Practices2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a compilation of three reports that survey - and re-interpret from feminist perspectives - existing material on men-s practices in terms of academic outputs, statistics and legal/governmental policies in Sweden. The period focused upon was primarily the last five to ten years. Although the main focus of the reports was men-s violence, they also survey the material on other areas of men-s lives such as home and work, social exclusion and health - and the connections between these areas and the field of men-s violence. It is important to stress that the analysis underlying the reports was inspired not only by feminist approaches but also, more specifically, by a gender relational perspective. Current debates about socalled -intersectionality- also informed the analysis in the reports - therefore much emphasis was placed on considering the way that gender impacted upon, and was impacted upon by, other social divisions associated with, for instance, age, ethnicity, disability and sexuality.

    A Reconsideration of Two "Welfare Paradises" Research and Policy Responses to Men's Violence in Denmark and Sweden2009In: Men and masculinities., Vol. 12, no 2, p. 155-174Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

      This article compares the situation in Denmark and Sweden regarding research and policy making around the issue of men-s violence to women and children. It does so by drawing on two comprehensive reviews of academic and policy data in those countries that were part of a broader European Union-funded project. Although the picture emerging from this comparison is complex, the overall conclusion is that in Sweden over recent years many more examples can be found of a critical, power-oriented approach than is the case in Denmark.

    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.

    Trouble in Paradise: Exploring Patterns of Research and Policy Response to Men's Violence in Denmark and Sweden2010In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, ISSN 0803-8740, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 105-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article compares the situation in Denmark and Sweden regarding research and policy-making around the issue of men's violence to women and children. Although the emerging picture is complex, the overall conclusion is that in Sweden in recent years one finds many more examples of a critical, power-oriented approach than is the case in Denmark. A potential multidimensional explanation for this divergence is suggested, with an emphasis placed on institutional factors—in particular the possible impact of contrasting dominant discourses of collectivism and individualism on welfare and other social institutions in the two countries.
