    Intersectionality and Change: Challenges of the Authorized Heritage Discourse2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The dominating discourses and configurations/representations within museums today are usually presenting the past in very reduces stereotyped manners, especially in relation to gender. Even if the contexts are different, the stories are often told in the same way they have always been narrated.

    This way of narrating the past has broadly been identified as the Authorized Heritage Discourse (AHD) by the critical heritage scholar Laurajane Smith (2006). The AHD is conceived as an ‘official’ way of understanding heritage and is, according to Smith, a particular way of understanding heritage which stresses the importance of expertise knowledge, and privileges the cultural recollection of a limited social stratum, including a limited scope on gender relations and representations.

    One way of challenging this AHD is to critically analyse the curatorial practices from an intersectional perspective (Crenshaw 1991, Lykke 2010, Grahn 2011). This means to ask questions of how exhibitions configure and shape our remembrance of the intertwined relations of social identities such as gender, class, age, sexuality, dis/ability etc., which this presentation will do.

    ”Känn dig själf”: Genus, historiekonstruktion och kulturhistoriska museirepresentationer2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how privileged representations of femininity and masculinity are created in contemporary work at The Swedish National Museum of Cultural History, Nordiska museet, in Stockholm. The thesis shows how these representations closely intersect with the museal imaginaries of class, ethnicity, nationality and sexuality. The study gives rise to ontological questions of how historical narratives are produced and how museal artifacts are apprehended. The main argument is that the dominating representations are created through a reduced matrix of stereotyped scripts for gender, class, ethnicity, nationality and sexuality that can be understood as reflections of a phallogocentric order.

    This exploration of contemporary scripts at Nordiska museet is performed with analytic tools from the overlapping fields of sexual difference, queer and sexuality studies, gender studies, women’s studies, masculinity studies, post colonial feminist studies and feminist studies of science and technology. A pluralistic feministinformed nomadological metatheoretical frame is used as an umbrella to embrace these theoretical approaches. The complexity of the social world and of a museum demand different theories to be applied to different situations. A general map of the phallogocentric museal scripts is drawn, besides which a partial and locally accounted one is juxtaposed that gives shape to the museal imaginary.

    Lokala röster och lokala värden. En studie av Ålgårds kyrka.2007Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Why do people that hardly ever attend at church suddenly become the forefront defenders ofthe church building when it is threatened to be demolished? What does the church mean tothese people that paradoxically enough seems to care about the building though theypreviously never seem to have paid it particular attention? Which values do they assign tothe church if the meaning is not based on Christian values?To get an answer to these questions an investigation has been made in the small village ofÅlgård, in the south-west of Norway. The congregation wished to demolish their church togive place to a new one, but a main part of the non active members of the church wanted tokeep it.The church building has become a symbol of profound existential meaning for the people,without necessary being founded upon a Christian religious belief. These meanings have amore universal character. The building is essential because it is linked to questions of lifeand death and has become the main official space in which to emphasize the importance ofthese moments. However, these rituals and ceremonies can be performed without explicitreference to Christianity and religion.The values ascribed to the church deal on a fundamental level with the way people createthemselves, the place and the local society they live in. They form their own identity, theidentity of the specific place in the landscape as well as the identity of the local community byascribing meaning to the surrounding world. A complex weave of values and meanings is circling around the church building and different parts can be used by different people tocreate themselves. The church building in Ålgård is a basic part of continuous creation of theindividual identities and their worlds.When the existing church is threatened to be demolished and exchanged by a new one, it isnot only the physical building that is threatened. At that moment the individuals, the place aswell as the local communities whole identity is threatening to fall apart. In these post-moderntimes associated with a feeling of social fragmentation, the need to connect to somethingstable and long-lasting seems to increase.

    Representing the past of the South Sámi and Norse in a border­land2016In: Gränser, mobilitet och mobilisering: Nationell konferens för genusforskning / [ed] Lundgren Silje, Lundqvist Maja, Pernrud Björn, Göteborg, Sweden, 2016, Vol. 1, p. 55-55Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with how the past is being presented and interpretedtoday by cultural institutions. The area in focus in this paper is situatedin the borderland of the Norse and South Sámi territory in mid-Scan­dinavia, in the municipalities of Rendalen and Engerdal in Norway. Thepaper will examine how two of the main actors on the arena of culturalheritage are constructing the past: the institutions of cultural heritagemanagement responsible for the studied area and museums within thearea and the adjacent surroundings. The paper will contribute to thedevelopment of knowledge within these fields. Important research ques­tions that will be considered are: How are the official heritage institutionstoday presenting the past? Which particular pasts have been emphasized?How are they configured? Who’s past get to be included and who’s past isexcluded? How can this be understood?The methods used are fieldwork, including interviews and observati­ons. Moreover literature and documentary studies, the study of artefactsand the analysis of archaeological material have also been used.To analyse this material theories from Feminist technoscience, Inter­sectionality, Critical heritage studies and Postcolonial theory are used.

    Den diskursiva förhandlingen och konstruktionen av Sør-Gjæslingan2011Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this project was to increase the knowledge about what happens when a landscape or an environment is transformed and preserved as a cultural landscape/environment. What occurs during this process? Which discourses dominate when history is linked to the place, what happens to the immaterial aspects of cultural heritage, and what happens at the various levels of management during the process? The empirical point of departure for this project is Sør-Gjæslingan in Nord-Trøndelag on the northern coast of Norway – a place that has been exposed to the process of becoming preserved as a cultural environment over many years, a process that ended in October 2010. This project has thus been able to follow the preservation process during its implementation, which has supplied the project with a diverse and extensive material.

    The report is organized in six chapters. The first chapter outlines background and aim of the project, research questions, theory and methods. The second part investigates the concept cultural environment and describes shortly the process of preservation at Sør-Gjæslingan. Chapter three analyses how the publicly sanctioned discourses and representations of Sør-Gjæslingan as a cultural environment is produced and presented, and compares this with some alternative local discourses and representations. Chapter four focuses on to what extent and how the immaterial aspects of cultural heritage are emphasized, with special focus on women’s life and work. The fifth part deals with the processes of cultural heritage management. In the sixth part we summarize the project.

    Each author is responsible for their individual contribution, however, mutual discussions and exchange have taken place.

    Gender and heritage: performance, place and politics2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender and Heritage brings together a group of international scholars to examine the performance, place and politics of gender within heritage. Through a series of case studies, models and assessments, the significance of understanding and working with concepts of gender is demonstrated as a dynamic and reforming agenda. Demonstrating that gender has become an increasingly important area for heritage scholarship, the collection argues that it should also be recognised as a central structuring device within society and the location where a critical heritage studies can emerge.

    Drawing on contributions from around the world, this edited collection provides a range of innovative approaches to using gender as a mode of enquiry. From the politics of museum displays, the exploration of pedagogy, the role of local initiatives and the legal frameworks that structure representation, the volume’s diversity and objectives represent a challenge for students, academics and professionals to rethink gender. Rather than featuring gender as an addition to wider discussions of heritage, this volume makes gender the focus of concern as a means of building a new agenda within the field.

    This volume, which addresses how we engage with gender and heritage in both practice and theory, is essential reading for scholars at all levels and should also serve as a useful guide for practitioners.

    Exploration Towards Pleasure: Knowledge About Sexuality Produced With And For People With Intellectual Disabilities2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In both Western societies and academic research, the sexuality of people with intellectual disabilities is many times ignored or suppressed, often based on the assumption that people with intellectual disabilities are especially vulnerable and in need of protection. This study analyses the discourse produced by a Swedish sexual education material addressed to people with intellectual disabilities, that challenges this suppression by focusing on the role of the body and pleasure. The study shows that the alternative discourse addresses people with intellectual disabilities as being self-responsible for experiencing a pleasurable sexuality and is build upon two intertwined lines of argumentation: the importance of consent and the en couragement to embrace vulnerability. This thesis calls for more research that includes the sexual experiences and perspectives of people with intellectual disabilities to get a deeper understanding of the discourse’s development.

    It’s my Body, my Life: Prejudices around Sex Work in the Netherlands2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is an queer theoretical intersectional feminist study about sex workers experiences and the prejudices they face in the Netherlands. Dutch sex workers do no get the same chances and opportunities as other workers in society. So, the overarching research problem of this study is the consequences of certain discourses that confine Dutch sex workers in their lives. The thesis aims that people will critically reflect upon this study and that they will take into account the different discourses and the non-uniformity of sex workers and sex work, in other words, to create awareness and a better understanding of the complex, diverse and various groups of sex workers and the sex industry. This study consists of two research methods: literature review and interview study. The literature review consists of the previous research and the theoretical framework. The theoretical framework presents discourse and stigma as part of respectability. Discourse as systems of thinking, which effects and affects. Also this study presents respectability, in relation to the so-called non-respectable bodies of sex workers and the missing respect and dignity towards sex workers, as well as stigma as part of respectability, as the experience deviant from the normative discourse. The interview study consists of four semi-structured interviews, conducted both online and face-to-face with four Dutch participants. The method thematic content analysis was applied to code the interview transcripts and divide the content into themes and sub-themes. The three main themes are: the discourses around sex work, the consequences of the discourses around sex work and sex work as a form of labour. Under these main themes I present related sub-themes. In the analysis the participants share their stories about the negative attitude from people towards their profession, this negative attitude manifested itself in different ways. According to the participants, this negative attitude, or so-called stigma, confines sex workers in their personal and professional lives.

    Feminist Approaches to Using Other People’s Words: Two Examples2018In: SAGE Research Methods Cases Part 2, Sage Publications, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research methods case discusses how we use other people’s words—often collected through interviews—when informed by feminist methodology and theory. It presents different approaches to interview material (narrative analysis, discourse analysis, and conversation analysis) and considers how these epistemological approaches create “facts” (often called ontology) from “data.” We end by discussing how our use of interview material created different knowledge through the concept of onto-epistemology. We hope students will be left with an understanding of how one’s own positionality always affects what one sees in material. Using feminist methods and theories (and hoping students see the difficulties in drawing a strong distinction between methods and theories), we problematize a positivist understanding of qualitative research.

    Animating hiv: the shifting gazes of spectatorship: A viral repolitization2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    1986 the Swedish goverment set up a delegation, Aidsdelgationen, with the comission to informingand communicating objective and impartial facts on aids and hiv. The delgation was most known oftheir conspicuous posters that was generously spread in public spaces and media all over Swedenfrom 1987 until about 1993, when the first antiretroviral drugs appeard and most of the campaignsstopped. The posters were, in Sweden as elsewhere, sharply critizised for being moralistic aroundsex, and, above all, for stigmatizing certain groups as risk groups. I have managed to relocate someof the posters and I will discuss what kind of spectatorship they animate; what kind of subjectivitydo we embody by the act of looking, by being exposed to health propaganda?

    Abstract [en]

    In this article I investigate how tactile practicies appear in sexual narratives among trans persons and women in an ongoing ethnographic study on sexual feelings. I explore the political subjectivity of the sexual story, and how it is entangled or detached from mainstream imaginary of sex. Aiming at rerouting touch as categorically reconstructing bodily shapes, I highlight the dynamics between the sensational, emotional, material and social representations. Influenced by feminist and queer writers such as Luce Irigaray, Susan Stryker, Eve Sedgewick and Sara Ahmed I turn to the sexual narratives of how touch would revamp the mainstream discourses of an embodied sexual self.

    Blandade känslor: bisexuella kvinnors praktik & politik2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis examines women's bisexual practices in the power relations that organise cultural imaginaries of sex/gender, bodies and sexualities. It is the first in depth study on bisexual lives in Sweden and fills a gap in the field of critical queer theory and feminism. Its purpose is to document and explore the sexual and gendered imaginary in everyday life as well as in knowledge production about sexuality from a bisexual perspective and highlight bisexuality as an analytical category.

    The study emanates from bisexual women's narratives based on interviews, and highlights their different perspectives and subject positions in contemporary Sweden. Many of the women were also engaged in drag king performances, which inspired to seek connections between bisexuality and drag kings.

    Drawing on themes that occur in the interviews, such as monogamous and non-monogamous relationships, the materiality of the body, bisexual feminism and drag king performance, the thesis examines how the bisexual middle ground is re-negotiated and operates as an alternative strategy within the geography of sexuality and gender. Compared to the established knowledge about bisexuality, both older and contemporary, the interviewed women both appropriate and reject a normative bisexual middle ground. The study discusses the necessity of a bisexual perspective that emanates from bisexual subject positions and that a bisexual perspective is useful as an analytical category within feminism and queer studies.

    Examining the affects of gender neutral language in Swedish Marriage Code2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on some of the topics and discussions covered in the 2nd International Conference (10-11-12 May 2012), this third symposium seeks to expand on the relationship between law and language by exploring the role of legal discourse in a wide array of social/institutional settings, where it is an integral and constitutive part of the ‘social practices’ manifested in different languages, cultures and societies. The understanding of legal discourses and practices includes not only the legal rules, institutions, and processes constructed as part of social structures and systems, but also their impact on other diverse social categories and values where the agency of language-discourse is involved in various aspects of social life. - See more at: http://www.iafl.org/conffullposts.php?id=113#sthash.Qcp9QpXj.dpuf

    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln belyser hur kvinnorörelsen under 1970-talet sökte ny och förbättrad kunskap om kvinnokroppen och kvinnors sexuella njutning. Genom att betona kvinnors egna (och kolektiv) erfarenheter och med klitoris i centrum erbjöd de ett feministiskt alternativ till rådande förståelse av kropp, kön och sexualitet.

    Breathing Matters: Feminist Intersectional Politics of Vulnerability2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Breathing is not a common subject in feminist studies. Breathing Matters introduces this phenomenon as a forceful potentiality for feminist intersectional theories, politics, and social and environmental justice. By analyzing the material and discursive as well as the natural and cultural enactments of breath in black lung disease, phone sex work, and anxieties and panic attacks, Breathing Matters proposes a nonuniversalizing and politicized understanding of embodiment. In this approach, human bodies are onceptualized as agential actors of intersectional politics. Magdalena Górska argues that struggles for breath and for breathable lives are matters of differential forms of political practices in which vulnerable and quotidian corpomaterial and corpo-affective actions are constitutive of politics. Set in the context of feminist poststructuralist and new materialist and postconstructionist debates, Breathing Matters offers a discussion of human embodiment and agency reconfigured in a posthumanist manner. Its interdisciplinary analytical practice demonstrates that breathing is a phenomenon that is important to study from scientific, medical, political, environmental and social perspectives.

    Interrupce psaná společnosti, tělem a individuálním vědomím2004In: Gender, rovné přiležitosti, výzkum, ISSN 1213-0028, no 4, p. 4-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [cs]

    Debata na téma interrupce se většinou pohybuje kolem otázek práva na život (pro-life) a práva na svobodné rozhodnutí ženy (pro-choice). Její podoba je však do značné míry diktovaná diskursem hnutí pro-life. Nejvíce zřejmé je to v Polsku kde se 90% obyvatelstva považuje za katolíky (Graff 2001) a pro-life diskurs, podporovaný katolickou církví, která interrupci považuje za hřích a vraždu nenarozeného dítěte, má ohromný vliv jak na společnost, tak i na zákonodárství. Nicméně i v Čechách, státě, ve kterém vliv církve je značně slabší, je tón debaty pro-lifeisty také silně ovlivněn. Ale jak debata o interrupcích vypadá? Proč tak vypadá? O čem její podoba vypovídá? Jaké formy výpovědi a zkušenosti (ne)umožňuje? Jak zúčastněné skupiny, pro-life a pro-choice, používají jazyk k artikulaci svých premis? Čím se tyto dva diskursy od sebe liší a co mají společného? Do jakých pozic v rámci debaty o interrupci jsou situované ženy a do jakých muži? Je v ní místo pro partnerský vztah? Přibližně tyto otázky jsou tématem následující úvahy, jejíž cílem je také poukázat na diskursivní hranice, kterým podléhá nejen naše jednání ale také samotné myšlení a veškerá snaha o artikulaci nejen vlastní zkušenosti ale také pouhého názoru na toto téma. Tvrdím, že interrupce je psaná společností, tělem a individuálním vědomím, ale způsob jakým jí píše tělo a individuální vědomí je – při  stávající podobě debaty – v moci této debaty, tedy toho jak je interrupce konceptualizovaná ve společenském diskursu. Proto se v této úvaze nejprve zaměřují na, jazyk, problémy a kontext, ve kterém se pohybujeme, a teprve potom se snažím problematizovat individuální prožitek, jenž je v tomto rámci uvězněn. V této druhé části se snažím spíše načrtnout otázky než na ně najít odpovědi.
