    Agency, structures and women managers views of their careers in tourism2018In: Women's Studies: International Forum, ISSN 0277-5395, E-ISSN 1879-243X, Vol. 71Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism is an important employer for women in many countries. However, despite this seeming women friendliness, women are still underrepresented at the top of tourism businesses. Previous research on women managers careers in tourism has neglected the analysis of their careers in the light of new career concepts, such as the boundaryless career. Hence, in-depth semi-structured interviews were carried out with twenty-four female senior managers in Portuguese hotels and travel businesses, including entrepreneurs across a wide range of business sizes. The aim was to analyse these womens perspectives on how they have reached the top. It is concluded that women regard their careers as an outcome of their inherent characteristics, agency and a desire to seize challenges that lead to intrinsic satisfaction. They downplay the role of both structural enablers and structural barriers. This article analyses these issues from a boundaryless career model perspective and with a gender lens.

    Beyond the glass ceiling: Gendering tourism management2019In: Annals of Tourism Research, ISSN 0160-7383, E-ISSN 1873-7722, Vol. 75, p. 79-91Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers how Ackers (1990, 2012) framework of gendering processes can be a tool for the analysis of women managers careers in tourism organisations. Twenty-four women toplevel managers in hotels and travel businesses were interviewed. The analysis of gendering processes in the organisations where these women work revealed that hidden discrimination is more pervasive than overt discrimination. Three main gender subtexts underlie these gendering processes: the notion of the ideal unencumbered worker and assumptions of womens greater family-orientation; the expectation that women are less competent than men; and male homosocial ties and exclusionary practices. It is concluded that Ackers framework can be a good tool for de-legitimising subtle and normalised forms of discrimination in tourism organisations.

    Defending Unproductivity in Knowmadic Academia2016In: Control - Book of Abstracts, Stockholm University , 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the intersection of problems of labour, capitalism and the body, and situates it in the context of contemporary academia. We will attempt to bring together the “old” (Marxist) and new traditions of materialism in order to re-think the material of the cognitive work. We pose the following questions: What happens to bodies in an increasingly neoliberal academia, which produces precarious, nomadic and, oftentimes, sick bodies (depressed, burned-out, anxious)? What are the ways in which control is being exercised over these bodies? Inspired by the idea of “situated knowledges” we claim that to produce academic discourses on how bodies and lives are kept under control, it is vital to recognize one’s own position (in this case it is a positionlocated within the context of the academia) as a space which is not free from the relations of control, power and violence. We argue that in this particular work environment (i.e. the university) the control over “cognitive labourers” is exercised throughdistribution of anxiety which forces subjects to be productive. We argue that dismantling the productive/unproductive dichotomy could lead to new forms of resistance, solidarity and/or collective action.

    Doing Academia Differently2016In: 21st Century Feminist Praxes, Ontologies and Materialities Conference: Program and Abstract Book, Central European University , 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for this paper is Rosi Braidotti’squestion of “what a body can do and how much a body can take” (2006, p. 129). The paper addresses questions of affectivity, vulnerability, resilience and resistance of the diseased/sick/(dis)abled/depressed body and brings these questions to my/our own backyard: the context of today’s neoliberal, “knowmadic” academia. There seems to be a growing, albeit little-researched and rarely expressed officially, concern about mental health issues being on the rise among academics (see: e.g. Shaw and Ward 2014). I’dlike to pose the following question: what kind of cognitive production, what thought paradigms, knowledges and praxes do sick –depressed, anxious, burned-out –bodies create? Relying on David Harvey’s comment that under capitalism sickness is defined as inability to work (2001, p.106), I wish to search for alternative logics in which, perhaps, “feeling bad might, in fact, be the ground for transformation” (Cvetkovich 2012, p. 3.). That is not to idealize sickness but rather to point to the intertwined nature of the relation between the embodiment and theory, and the body of a researcher and their work (a body of work; institutionalbodies; the sick body...) and look into the productive unproductivity of the “not feeling well”.

    Imagining Epigenetics:: An explorative study of transdisciplinary embodiments, and feminist entanglements2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis proposes the relevance of epigenetic research to feminist studies and gender

    studies, and vice versa, and asks how epigenetics speaks to the so-called sex-gender

    distinction. It also discusses what epigenetics could potentially tell us about ourselves,

    and our place in a world where we are all creatures of both nature and nurture. The

    author proposes that with its promise of insight into the relationship of the body to

    environment and experience over time, epigenetics could be an inextricable link

    between nature and nurture. Combining a modified version of diffractive analysis, and

    gender/sex as an analytical device, the author engages with epigenetic research and its

    representation in popular science and in the public imaginary. After discussing the

    striations of feminist discourse on permeable bodies, the author proposes epigenetics as

    another layer in the strata, placing epigenetics within feminist and gender studies

    literature and discourse. Noting that as research gains ground the way in which the

    public imagines and describes epigenetics gives shape to its materialization and

    development, this thesis asserts the urgent need for social sciences, and in particular

    feminist and gender studies, to engage in critical discourse

    Gay men’s experiences of sexual changes after prostate cancer treatment: a qualitative study in Sweden2019In: Scandinavian journal of urology, ISSN 2168-1805, E-ISSN 2168-1813, Vol. 53, no 1, p. 40-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: The needs of gay men after prostate cancer treatment are becoming visible. This patient group reports a more negative impact of treatment than heterosexual men. Yet, gay men’s experiences of post-treatment sexual changes are still little explored. This study aims to determine specific concerns of gay men’s post-treatment sexual practices.

    Methods: A qualitative study design was deployed using semi-structured interviews as data. Participants were purposefully sampled through advertisements and the snowball method. Eleven self-identifying gay men aged 58–81 years and treated for prostate cancer participated in interviews during 2016–2017. The interviews were transcribed, coded and thematically analysed.

    Results: The analysis highlights sexual changes in relation to the physical body, identity and relations. Problematic physical changes included loss of ejaculate and erectile dysfunction. Some respondents reported continued pleasure from anal stimulation and were uncertain about the role of the prostate. These physical changes prompted reflections on age and (dis)ability. Relationship status also impacted perception of physical changes, with temporary sexual contacts demanding more of the men in terms of erection and ejaculations.

    Conclusions: Gay prostate cancer survivors’ narratives about sexual changes circle around similar bodily changes as heterosexual men’s, such as erectile problems and weaker orgasms. The loss of ejaculate was experienced as more debilitating for gay men. Men who had anal sex were concerned about penetration difficulties as well as sensations of anal stimulation. Additional studies are required to better understand the role of the prostate among a diversity of men, regardless of sexuality.

    The language of discomfort: A phenomenological research on Men, Empathy and Self-Esteem in German Workplaces.2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this research was to address the possible emotional consequences that working in German workplaces, using the local language, may have on non-native men’s self-esteem and to see if the difficulties they went through could have modified their perception of the power structures at the workplace. Using a feminist phenomenological approach, I interviewed four white cisgender men and focused on their feelings throughout the journey of working in a language that was not their native one, surrounded by German native speakers.The results showed how controversial might be for men to accept to feel empathy and that showing vulnerability at the workplace is still seen as very negative.Drawing from Berggren’s theory of “Sticky Masculinity”, I will analyse and explain the results, shedding a light on the participants’ behaviour. Finally, I will posit some “good practices” to avoid the stigmatization of vulnerability in organizational settings and to change the power structures at the workplace.

    Towards A Radical Feminist Change: The Empowerment Of Survivors From Prostitution, Transgression Of Normativities And The Abolition Of Power Differences.2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis is an attempt to illustrate the role of a feminist and abolitionist organization towards the enhancement of women’s social conditions and their representation in society. The study is based on my three months training at an Icelandic organization, Stígamót, which is an “Education and Counselling Centre for Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Violence”. My stay there included a series of interviews with social workers and survivors of prostitution and sexual trafficking.  The centre has a multi-faceted approach, using feminist empowerment as a methodological process for the purpose of increasing the quality of life. Together with feminist theories on intersectionality and empowerment as methodological tools, I am researching the relations between survivors’ empowerment, their agency, with a radical political change, leading to gender-equal society.

    Bodies in Simulation2019In: Interprofessional Simulation in Health Care: Materiality, Embodiment, Interaction / [ed] Madeleine Abrandt Dahlgren, Hans Rystedt, Li Felländer-Tsai and Sofia Nyström, Cham: Springer, 2019, 1, p. 175-195Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent theorisations of practice have suggested that a focus on the role of the body in professional practices, in simulated or naturalistic settings, might enable educators and learners to draw attention to other dimensions of knowledge, which are not easily accessible through cognitive perspectives. Recognising the role of the body in knowledge production in practice goes beyond a focus on the individual practitioner, in the clarification how the performance of a practice is constituted by the relational nature of material arrangements and professional bodies. This chapter re-visits dimensions of simulation from a specific focus of realism and embodiment and discusses the clinical impression of the manikin as multiple bodies being simulated—through doings and sayings bound together with materiality.

    “Huggables”, “furry lovers” and “weapons of mass destruction” - Entanglements of older, British singletons with (non-sexual) touch2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In a cultural web of myth, sexualisation and prejudice, how do older, British singletons gain access to health-giving, non-sexual touch? This study takes interview material from five single women and three single men (all cisgender, white, heterosexual, British, between 37-76 years) and interlaces it with autoethnographic commentary, poems and artworks to explore negotiations around touch. Drawing on Haraway and Barad’s theoretical concept of “entanglements” (2008; 2007), cross-disciplinary connections are woven across feminist new materialism and social sciences, the body and discourse, the conscious and subconscious. Findings, which are partial, provisional, messy and complex (Haraway 1988), include powerful narratives of shame, denial and cauterisation of touch-needs. These co-exist with corporeal tales of the richness and variety of touch-opportunities, the tactile importance of cats and a “turn” by the oldest, female participants away from a romantic, heterosexual partner towards bonding with the landscape.

    The Intersectional Stigmatization of the Piranha in Prostitution: A case study of young women in prostitution  in central Lima2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is constructed upon narratives of fourteen young women, who have been working in prostitution since they were street children in central Lima, and acknowledges their stigmatization in the Peruvian society, and how they challenge their socially constructed position. By combining narrative method with an intersectional analysis I have, through a multi-layered loupe, interpreted the young women’s interpretation of themselves and their social world. I will bring forward how these young women view their subordinate and stigmatized position through their narratives surrounding their bodies as shameful, culpable, sexual and fixed. This stigmatization is intersectional as it surrounds all parts of their lives and situatedness within the Peruvian society. This situatedness is complex, involving hierarchical structures that have been present in Peru since colonization and imperialism (cf. Wade 2009). In addition, I will bring forward how the young women engage in strategies to challenge this stigmatization by applying measures to increase their respectability (cf. Skeggs).

    Trapped inside a body: A decolonial case study on Peruvian female trafficking as a critique of Western victimization paradigm2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is a critique of Eurocentric, modernist and universal assumptions within the recognition, identification and understanding of the human trafficking victim. International law, academic research and media have established a Western victimization paradigm, providing requirements for victimization that few trafficked persons meet (Lobasz 2009: 322). By a case study on Peruvian trafficking of girls and women, this study questions the universal generalizations. By applying decolonial and intersectional methodology and theory, this thesis focus on the body- and geopolitics of knowledge through analyzing processes surrounding women that are the majority of trafficked girls and women in Peru, arriving from the Peruvian Andes and Amazon. Peruvian trafficking is conceptualized by temporalities and spatialities of colonial legacies where certain women have been sexualized and racialized into inferior position in the society. In conclusion, this thesis finds that there is a severe risk that trafficked girls and women in Peru will not fulfill the established requirement of victimization presented in the Western victimization paradigm. This thesis calls for a new and broader understanding of trafficking through a pluriversal lens rather than universal.

    Framing men in feminism: theoretical locations, local contexts and practical passings in mens gender-conscious positionings on gender equality and feminism2009In: JOURNAL OF GENDER STUDIES, ISSN 0958-9236, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 403-418Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses some aspects of the Man Question in feminism, by way of the analysis of mens diverse gender-conscious positionings in relation to gender, gender equality and feminism. It builds on earlier work, making use of theoretical models in feminist literature combined with the micro-sociological concept of passing. The article is primarily concerned with the theoretical and empirical complexities, contradictions and ambiguities of mens positionings, as when they are self-defined as feminists (or similar identifications) in radical or deconstructive ways. In this, Swedish interview data are used. Sweden is considered particularly interesting, with a qualified societal consensus on gender equality and a broadly positive place accorded to mens relations with feminism. The authors argue in the final section that there is a need to further dialogue between analyses of men/masculinities and the multidimensionality of feminisms, as well as a need for more empirical studies of mens different (pro) feminist positionings in order to elaborate the theoretical implications of different social contexts. The framing presented seeks to provide greater possibilities for such complex, nuanced and situated understandings of mens relation to feminism, theoretically, analytically and politically.

    Att följa med samtiden: kvinnojoursrörelse i förändring2013Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna bok handlar om rörelsepolitik, det vill säga en social rörelses politiska påverkansmöjligheter. Det är den första studien av en riksorganisation inom den svenska kvinnojoursrörelsen och har såväl ett historiskt som dagsaktuellt anslag. Sveriges Kvinno- och Tjejjourers Riksförbund (SKR) bröt sig ur Riksorganisationen för kvinnojourer och tjejjourer (Roks) i Sverige vid mitten av 1990-talet i samband med en konflikt vars ideologiska kärna var synen på feminism, män och barn. Ur SKR:s perspektiv handlade konflikten också om olika synsätt på organisation, demokrati och öppenhet. I boken analyseras de skiljelinjer som SKR valde att fokusera vid starten och i den fortsatta verksamheten. Samtidigt undersökt vilken påverkan den nya organisationen haft på den politiska dagordningen. Vilka framgångar kan skönjas och vad har offrats på vägen? Här analyseras samtidspolitiska förändringar genom en ideell organisations formering och utveckling och i relation till både det civila samhället och staten.

    Att vara som/den ’en’ är: En etisk diskussion om begreppen rättvisa, erkännande och identitet i en trans*kontext2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis I point to misrecognition of gender variance and the injustice that follows from this as an important problem of injustice and misrecognition in society. The main ambition is to discuss what a possible and empowering ethics of recognition might mean. The aim is to understand the meaning of the concepts of justice and recognition in relation to identity and identity politics, through a configuration which I call ‘to be as/who you are’. The theoretical ethical discussion is placed within a trans*context in order to orientate the discussion towards a concrete and contextual example. The trans*context is exemplified by a transbiographical and a transpolitical chapter, in order to be able to describe experiences of identities and the politics and moral standpoints that come out of it. Through the politics it is possible to identify moral lacks of justice and recognition, which, according to Iris Marion Young, can be understood as normative possibilities. In the transbiographical material, experiences of invisibility and its ontological consequences emerged. The importance of visibility and listening as moral necessities in order to make trans identities and existences possible through a conceptualization of conceptions and imaginations of gender variance is underlined. The figure ‘to be as/who you are’ is meant to open up and allow for a discussion around everyday experiences and the consequences of the concept of identity without its problematic and limiting consequences. I conclude with a suggestion for an outline of a possible and empowering ethics of recognition with open and flexible principles of recognition, and further a specification of those principles so they can be used as transempowering guidelines.

    Abstract [en]

    In this study I use semi-structured interviews and participant observation, in an intersectional and post-colonial theoretical framework, to look at one specific aspect of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory: the restrictions of movement that are a result of the occupation, and how these influence different groups of the population in different ways, more specifically by analysing intersections of gender and age.  I consider not only restrictions caused by physical barriers, but also barriers caused by fear of violence or detainments and arrests. In the second part of the study I analyse strategies of resistance against the issues caused by the restrictions of movement and their gendered aspects. I show how the effects of the Wall, barriers and restrictions of movement are gendered and age-related, identifying multiple vulnerable locations at different intersections of gender and age. I also demonstrate how both individual strategies of resistance and the possibilities to participate in organised forms of resistance are gendered.

    Economic inequalities between countries and the impact on youth and elderly respectively: a comparative case study focusing on Greece and Sweden2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis attempts to throw light on the underlying reasons behind the economic ambivalence between EU countries. In this sense, Greece and Sweden will be posted at the center of my research interest. For this purpose, Intersectionality theory as well as Neo liberalism and Neoclassical economics will be used in such a way that will assist me to disclose the deep causes of this inequality and to further examine how intersections of gender, age/generation and class are intertwined and affect the youth and elderly in both countries. Furthermore, both qualitative and quantitative data will be applied in a way that will enable me to compare and contrast the two social groups chosen. Having demonstrated that, I will move a step forward by narrowing down my research focus on how the youth in both countries react against this kind of social exclusion.

    Consuming Media: Communication, Shopping and Everyday Life2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Inspired by Walter Benjamin-s classical Arcades Project, Consuming Media is a pioneering exploration of the interface between communication, shopping and everyday life. Based on a six-year -intersectional- ethnographic fieldwork by over a dozen scholars on a specific site, it analyses the links between media and consumption in contemporary urban culture and public space. The book is organized into ten chapters. The first two chapters introduce key ideas and theories. In the next four chapters, four large media circuits are scrutinized. The final four chapters discuss the results in terms of intermedial relations, time, space and power. The book thus offers a new foundation for understanding media use, consumption and the fate of urban public space in late modernity

    Medier och människor i konsumtionsrummet2002Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Medier är en stor och viktig del av vårt vardagsliv. Vi tittar på TV och video, läser böcker och tidningar, skickar kort och talar i mobiltelefon, lyssnar på plattor och fotograferar. Men egentligen börjar vår konsumtion av medier redan då vi köper dem i butikerna. Denna bok har sin startpunkt just där, för att sedan följa medievarorna ut i vardagen med sina köpare. I mötena mellan människor och medier avslöjas medieindustrins makt över människorna, men också hur människorna tar makten över sina medier.Hur väljer, köper, använder och avyttrar människor olika typer av medievaror? Hur samspelar olika medier med varandra och vad skiljer dem åt? Vilka medier ingår enligt kronofogden i hushållens normala minimistandard? Hur organiseras tidningskiosken, bokhandeln och fotoaffären för att locka människor till köp? Är affischer konst? Vad innebär samlande, ägande, lån och gåvor när det gäller skivor, böcker eller kort? Hur strukturerar ungdomar, barnfamiljer och pensionärer tid och rum genom bruket av video och telefon? Är det företagen eller människorna som är mest globala? Förs det någon kamp om mediernas makt i vardagen?

    Passager : medier och kultur i ett köpcentrum2001Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vart man än vänder sig omges man idag av medier, inte minst i ett köpcentrum  gratistidningar, affischer, tv-monitorer, musik, telefoner För att kunna säga något väsentligt om medierna i ett nutida konsumtionsrum är det också nödvändigt att analysera själva ramen, köpcentrumet. I antologin Passager besvaras bl a frågor om vad ortens berömda fotbollslag har där att göra, varför bänkarna hela tiden flyttar på sig, vad ett köpcentrum egentligen kostar, hur gränsen dras mellan vi och dom, varför det aldrig är vinter där. Det handlar om ägandeförhållanden och yttrandefrihet, ljudlandskapets geografi, postmodern arkitektur med historiska rötter, kampen mellan offentlig konst och reklamskyltning, shopping i cyberrymden, människor som älskar eller hatar sitt centrum och om hur hela köpcentrumet kan ses som ett enormt medium.

    “It’s natural”: An exploration of age analysis in intersectional feminism2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Historically, age has been and still is a major organizing principle for social relations and the allotment of resources and power, yet age is very seldom acknowledged as a social categorization in its own right and in intersection with other identity categorizations. While feminist scholarship and activism have deconstructed racist and sexist discourses, in which biology is often used to legitimize social injustice, the presupposed naturalness of ageism is rarely challenged. The aim of the present paper is to explore if and why age relations and ageism are invisible in feminist work by interviewing eleven feminists in a Swedish context. The interviews, which are qualitative and semi-structured, have been thematically analysed to identify patterns in the respondents’ approaches to age as a social categorization in intersectional analysis. A recurring theme is explaining age and ageism in terms of a fluidity of age relations, which make it a complex categorization to include in intersectional analysis. Drawing on theories of ageing and intersectional feminism I explore how the research material can be understood from a social and historical perspective. The thesis builds on a post-constructionist epistemology which underlines the importance of situated knowledges and accountability, and I therefore chose to make myself as the author visible throughout the text by writing the I and including personal accounts related to ageism and ageing.

    Men against violence. Analysis of social awareness campaigns in Poland.2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis addresses gender, masculinities and intimate partner violence in Poland. More specifically, the aim of this study is to problematize how masculinities are represented in Polish anti-violence social campaigns. Intimate partner violence is one of the most common forms of violence against women and is a major problem that affects both  men and women in Poland. The study approaches violence from a feminist position, and considers  men's violence to be an important element constructing masculinities. In the study, social campaigns are considered as policies which have a great potential to influence existing masculinities types and to introduce new, non-violent models of being a man. With the use of Bacchi`s “What`s the problem represented to be?” method and an intersectional perspective on gender and masculinities, Polish anti-violence campaigns are analysed to find out if they reproduce and/or challenge any social assumptions regarding men`s violence. The study found that even though campaigns challenged some of the existing masculinities types,  they also referred to existing discourses of men as protectors, providers and fighters. Final conclusions underline the need for awareness social campaigns directed towards men and with men as role models. Refraining from the use of masculinities connected with heroism and dominance, aggression and violence is recommended.

    A Countryside Perspective of Queer: - queering the city/countryside divide2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis contributes with a countryside perspective to queer research by highlighting the countryside as a context where queer lives are lived. In the thesis I problematize the city/countryside divide with a view of the concept of queer as dependent on space and time.  The empirical materials are generated through a workshop on queerness, gathering people living within a countryside context; the materials consist of a discussion and written responses to questions on queerness and the city/countryside binary. Theoretically and methodologically, the thesis is inspired by the notion of agential realism (Barad 2007) and situated knowledge, (Haraway 1988); the use of creative writing, inspired by Richardson (1994 and 2000), has also been central to the development of the thesis. The analysis is carried out within themes focusing on conditions for queerness within city/countryside experienced by people situated in the countryside. The analysis shows how space, time, contexts and intersections are entangled and queering the city/countryside divide.

    Integration of immigrants into the Swedish labor market: An intersectional perspectiv2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As an immigrant in Sweden, I connect this study to my embodied experiences in the labor market and reflect throughout this research as I discuss the experiences of other immigrants who struggle with labor market integration. This qualitative study focuses on the phenomenon of the integration of immigrants in the Swedish labor market from an intersectional perspective and from my position as an immigrant which enriches the discussions. I analyzed how immigrants are integrated into the Swedish labor market and how gender intersects with other human factors to influence labor market integration. The study was based on a reflexive ethnography methodology in which interviews and documentation studies were used in collecting the empirical data. A semi-structured interview guide was used during the interviews and the documentation study was focused on scrutinizing integration policy documents in Sweden.

    The findings provide a detailed account on the genesis of immigration policies and how they have evolved into integration policies in Sweden. It traces this from the 1950s when integration policies were intertwined with immigration policies. Also it provides an account of how the integration policies are implemented in Sweden focusing on the activities of two main organizations namely Arbetsförmedlingen and the Linköping’s municipality.

    Furthermore the findings highlights that, men and women experience labor market integration differently therefore there is the need for this subject to be studied from a heterogeneous perspective instead of a homogenous perspective. It also highlights that women’s gender intersects with other human endowments factors such as education, gender roles, marital status, language and skills that complicate their labor market integration. In addition the findings highlight the transnational lives of some of the participants who hold on to traditional ideologies from their countries of origin. Furthermore, immigrants conceptualized labor market integration according to their own understanding. The results shows that the conceptualization of some of the immigrants was similar to what is common in the literatures but there was one new conceptualization of the term labor market integration that can be added to the already existing conceptualizations.

    Canadian Society of Transplantation Members Views on Anonymity in Organ Donation and Transplantation2015In: Transplantation Proceedings, ISSN 0041-1345, E-ISSN 1873-2623, Vol. 47, no 10, p. 2799-2804Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Anonymity has been central to medical, psychosocial, and societal practices in organ donation and transplantation. The purpose of this investigation was to explore transplant professionals views on anonymity in the context of organ transplantation. Methods. The study consisted of an electronic 18-item survey distributed to the Canadian Society of Transplantation membership, asking about anonymity vs open communication/contact between organ recipients and donor families. Results. Of the 541 members surveyed, 106 replied. Among respondents, 71% felt that organ recipients and donor families should only communicate anonymously, yet 47% felt that identifying information could be included in correspondence between consenting recipients and donor families. When asked whether organ recipients and donor families should be allowed to meet, 53% of respondents agreed, 27% disagreed, and 20% neither agreed nor disagreed. With social media facilitating communication and eliminating the ability to maintain donor/recipient anonymity, 38% of respondents felt that a reexamination of current policies and practices pertaining to anonymity was necessary. Conclusion. In conclusion, there was no dominant position on the issue of anonymity/communication between donor families and transplant recipients. Further research and discussion concerning the views of healthcare professionals, organ recipients, and donor families on the mandate of anonymity is needed and may influence future policy.

    Theory on the Edge: Irish Studies and the Politics of Sexual Difference2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Theory on the Edge brings together some of the foremost specialists working at the interdisciplinary interface between Irish Studies, feminist theory, queer theory, and gender and sexuality studies in order to trace the contemporary development of feminist thinking and activism in Ireland. The collection opens with a contribution from Ailbhe Smyth, the high-profile academic and public activist, whom many of the contributors acknowledge as a formative influence in their own feminist development. Essays utilize theory rooted in material issues, but always ask 'why' rather than just 'how' to draw interesting new conclusions on the depth and variety of Irish feminism.

    Clearing up the bullshit: Deconstructing 'feminisation', gender stereotypes and gender biases within UK veterinary surgery2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores ‘feminisation’ discourse(s) within the UK veterinary profession, including the ways in which gender stereotypes and biases also influence such discourses and experiences of working within the field. Drawing upon and combining a range of sociological, organisational and feminist theories such as Witz’s (1992) theory of gendered professional projects and Butler’s (1990) highly influential notion of performativity, I am able to contextualise and expand upon the ‘doing’ of the veterinary profession as well as being able to frame ‘feminisation’ discourses as paradoxes, potentially producing the effects they articulate. My analysis is divided into two parts; the first deals with results of a 463 participant survey of veterinary workers regarding definitions, perceptions and observations of ‘feminisation’ and gender difference, highlighting the significance of this subject matter within their professional lives. The second part incorporates a deeper thematic analysis of particular everyday realities, emerging from four semi-structured interviews which also aimed to explore in greater detail individual perceptions and observations regarding ‘feminisation’ and gender biases and stereotypes, encouraging participants themselves to reflect upon their experiences. A number of conclusions emerged during the analysis, including an intriguing insight that those who tended to draw most strongly on gender stereotypes and biases to outline their perceptions and observations were paradoxically those who most vehemently believed gender was irrelevant. Fundamentally however this study concludes that the concept of ‘feminisation’ is a fluid conceptualisation, a cultural process and not just empirical category of ‘empty rhetoric’ as commonly utilised and applied to the veterinary profession; as such it has the potential to be utilised extensively to progress the profession in terms of wider inclusiveness, equality, transformation, in offering reconceptualised ways of considering what it means to be part of a ‘profession’ not predicated on patriarchal structures, and to ultimately reperceive how gender can be (re/un)enacted in transformative ways alongside progressively rearticulated ‘feminisation’ discourses.

    Genusgranskning av BA-programmet Kultur, Samhälle och Mediegestaltning, (KSM­­­­­). Campus Norrköping, Linköpings universitet, den 2018 11 012018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    För att sammanfatta denna utvärdering av KSM-programmet utifrån genusperspektiv så är programmet inte vare sig så genusmedvetet eller har anlagt genusperspektiv i den utsträckning som skulle vara önskvärd. Det mest framträdande utifrån genusperspektiv sett, att vissa studenter –och framför allt dem som ingår i seminariegrupp 3 på P4 –aldrig någon gång under de tre åren som programmet pågår får en grundläggande genomgång av vad genus och genusperspektiv är och kan vara. Visserligen kommer genus in i mer eller mindre avancerade och ofta också komprimerade formerunder de tre åren, vilket torde göra det svårt för de studenter som själva inte tidigare studerat genusvetenskap att på djupet kunna tillgodogöra sig detta. De nuvarande genomgångarna verkar helt enkelt för avancerade och för komprimerade för att kunna tas in. Helst borde en mer grundläggande genomgång ligga tidigt i utbildningen, så att studenterna kan få en chans att dekonstruera könsstereotypt tänkande under programmets gång. Här borde de delar av seminarieserierna i seminariegrupperna i P4 som innehåller genusmedveten litteratur, men som i dagsläget inte är obligatoriska för alla, formas till en grundläggande, allmän och obligatorisk kurs i genus. I nuläget finns i programmet en lättillgänglig och helt utmärkt del som behandlar HBTQ-frågor. Detta är naturligtvis viktigt och bra. Men HBTQ-frågor är bara en del av de genusperspektiv som skulle kunna appliceras på området. Men, som sagts ovan, skulle ett liknade behövas när det gäller genusperspektiv i allmänhet, t ex utifrån seminariegruppernas lättillgängliga genuslitteratur i P4. En stor svaghet med HBTQ-föreläsningen är dock att det är en gästföreläsare som håller i denna föreläsning, vilket borgar inte för en framtida kommande kontinuitet. Detsamma gäller den publika föreläsningen med Anja Hirdman. Här bör det i båda fallen vara personer som är knutna till KSM eller i vart fall LiU på långtidsbasis ta sig an detta. Med gästföreläsare vet inte den program-och/eller kursansvariga om det kommer att finnas någon lärare att tillgå för detta centrala moment nästkommande år. En kontinuitet i lärarbefattningarna är nödvändig. I nuläget verkar genus överlag vara en underkommunicerad kategori. Vid de två tillfällen då obligatoriska moment för alla där genus ingår så har genus kommit att i det första fallet kallas ”Omgivna av det förflutna -om att göra kulturarv”(P1) och i det andra fallet ”Att göra familj”(P4). Dessa rubriker säger ingenting per se om genus, utan det är först när man klickar fram texterna som det står klart. Genus borde artikuleras tydligare. Ytterligare en minuspoäng är att det inte heller verkar som om alla studenter får hjälp att grunda genusperspektiven ide empiriska områden som programmet behandlar. Hur begreppen och teorierna ska knytas till och omvandlas i de specifika konkreta empiriska sammanhang som studenterna kommer att möta i sitt kommande arbetsliv förfaller inte finnas många svar på och inte heller har seminarierna övningar som skulle kunna leda till en ökad förståelse av dessa mekanismer. Vad kultur i vid bemärkelse, samhället och medierna har med genus att göra förefaller minst sagt ligga i en dunkel skugga. Allt detta borde ingå i programmet på ett tidigt stadium och följas upp under programmet kontinuerligt. I seminariegrupp 1, i P4, får emellertid studenterna pröva att relatera genusmedvetenhet till en utställning, vilket med fördel skulle kunna integreras i en lättgänglig kurs i genus som jag talade om strax ovan, precis på det sätt detta integrerats i P4 seminariegrupp 1.Programmets förefaller framför allt att ha en förmåga att på ett konkret och grundläggande sätt knyta an till ”de Andra”. Inte bara till ”de sexuella Andra” som ovanvisats, utan även till ”de etniska Andra”. Flera bra artiklar på detta tema finns med. Men i ljuset av att genus i allmänhet inte har ett sådant fokus i programmet och att resonemangen sällan knyts till det samhälle som studenterna lever och verkar i, finns det en risk att detta framför allt blir en angelägenhet för just ”de Andra”, men inte nödvändigtvis för ”oss”. En sådan tolkning kan undvikas t ex genom att rikta sökarljuset mot studenterna själva och fokusera mer i början av studierna på genus i allmänhet och att studenterna får pröva att applicera teorierna på något välbekant, som t ex utställningar som nämnts ovan. En hel del av litteraturen känns inte up-to-date, i vart fall inte när det gäller genusperspektiv. Jag tänker här främst på den stora andel av androcentrisk litteratur och den som dessutom i flera fall måste be traktas som rent misogyn. Dessa delar uppfattar jag som obsoleta. De androcentriska arbetena är i många fall just skrivna för så pass länge sedan att det vid denna tidpunkt kanske inte fanns något som i dag kallas genusperspektiv eller genusmedvetenhet.

    36Det kan också vara så när det gäller de äldre texterna att det inte funnits några kvinnor inom fältet som man skulle kunna referera till. Tänkvärt är dock att i Marx och Engels tankegångar visar de trots allt en medvetenhet om problemet, medan senare tiders tänkare inte alls tycks bekymra sig över saken. Här bör man naturligtvis väga betydelsen av varje enskild text mot det faktum att de saknar genusperspektiv. Men i nuläget torde det stå klart att alldeles för många misogyna idéer tillåts komma fram och att en viss begränsning borde göras. En ansats som jag saknar helt i detta program som har ett tydligt fokus på visuell och bildlig analys, är att inte någonstans står att läsa något om Bechdel-Walacetestet, som slagit igenom på stor front inom filmvärlden. Det börjar också att publiceras vetenskapliga artiklar på detta tema som borde tas upp på allvar i programmet.
