    Det besvärliga våldet: Socialtjänstens stöd till kvinnor som utsatts för våld i nära relationer2016Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis analyses how the needs of abused women are interpreted, renegotiated and adapted for handling within the social services. The overarching research questions concern support and needs, the significance of the social services organisation, and the role of social workers’ own discretion. The material consists of qualitative analyses of government bills, and interviews with social workers as well as with female victims of domestic violence. The theoretical framework includes Fraser's (1989) perspective on society's interpretations of people/groups in need of support, neo-institutional theory and the theory of street level bureaucracy. The thesis shows that social workers’ interpretations are central for how abused women's needs and their right to support will be understood. An important result is the wide variation in the kinds of support offered, deriving from the fact that there appears to be no uniform approach across the municipal social services; social workers in the different offices set up different requirements/thresholds for women to receive support. No answers are given in quantitative terms of how this diversity is distributed, but examples are presented to illustrate the range manifested. In  municipalities where specialisation means that the social workers primarily investigate needs and make formal decisions about measures to be taken, there must also be adequate interventions in place to decide upon and distribute. The thesis shows that both mutual knowledge and mutual understanding of social problems are central for the cooperation within in the specialised social services and ultimately for what kind of support people will be offered.

    Abstract [sv]

    Med startpunkt i Kvinnofridspropositionen från 1997 undersöks i den här artikeln sex statliga propositioner utifrån ett intersektionellt perspektiv. I artikeln diskuteras hur mäns våld mot kvinnor i nära relationer framställs som problem, hur de våldsutsatta kvinnorna framställs och konstrueras samt hur dessa framställningar förhåller sig till lagstiftarens motiveringar till lagstadgat stöd till dessa kvinnor. Analysen fokuseras kring hur kategorier som klass, kön och etnicitet synliggörs i det studerade materialet och hur detta kan förstås i relation till det lagstiftade stöd som formuleras för kvinnorna. I artikeln framkommer att de våldsutsatta kvinnorna framförallt beskrivs som kvinnor. I en del av texterna lyfts grupper av kvinnor (utländska, äldre, missbrukande t ex) upp som särskilt stödbehövande. Det handlar dock inte om en förståelse av hur olika maktstrukturer påverkar kvinnornas utsatthet för våld och deras skilda erfarenheter av konsekvenserna av våldet. Framställningen av den våldsutsatta kvinnan som å ena sidan ”vem som helst” och å andra sidan ”den andra” bidrar sannolikt till att det stöd som formuleras riskerar att inte möta de reella behov av stöd som våldsutsatta kvinnor har.

    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, the social services’ responsibility for abused women has been reinforced and clarified on several occasions since the 1990s. At the same time, the knowledge of their work is undeveloped. This article analyses the social services’ support for female victims of domestic violence with a focus on organisation, based on the concepts of specialisation and specialists. The study consists of qualitative interviews with 16 social workers in eleven municipalities. The study shows great organisational variation between the municipalities, although most have some sort of specialised units or person-bound specialisation. Colleagues, training and  external supervision are factors the social workers emphasise as important in working with female victims of violence, a social problem described as both special and difficult. The different forms of organisation and specialisation influence the support the social services offer abused women.

    Abstract [sv]

    Socialtjänstens ansvar för stöd till våldsutsatta kvinnor har förstärkts och förtydligats under flera tillfällen sedan 1990-talet. Samtidigt är kunskapen om socialtjänstens arbete begränsad. I artikeln analyseras socialtjänstens stöd till våldsutsatta kvinnor med fokus på organisering, utifrån begreppen specialisering och specialister. Studien består av kvalitativa intervjuer med 16 socialarbetare i 11 kommuner. Studien visar stor organisatorisk variation mellan kommunerna, även om de flesta har någon form av specialiserade enheter eller personbunden specialisering. Kollegor, kompetensutveckling och handledning är faktorer som socialarbetarna lyfter fram som viktiga i arbetet med stöd till våldsutsatta kvinnor, ett arbete som beskrivs som både speciellt och svårt. Organiseringen och specialiseringen påverkar det stöd som socialtjänsten erbjuder våldsutsatta kvinnor.

    Abstract [en]

    The social services in Sweden have become key actors in the field of support for female victims of domestic violence. However, knowledge about what kind of support the social services offer is underdeveloped. The aim of this article is to examine social workers’ perceptions of the needs they meet among female victims of domestic violence, what kind of support they offer to meet these needs, and how they use their discretion to negotiate and justify their work. The article builds on a qualitative analysis of interviews with social workers. The analysis shows that the social workers have a great deal of discretion, as a result of framework legislation and a high status among local politicians and managers. However, both specialization and a lack of available services limit their discretion. What an abused woman is offered or is entitled to is negotiated and justified depending on, for example, which services are available, whether the woman is considered to have own resources (not only financial but also emotional and practical), and if the social worker is available. Three main strategies for reducing workload are identified: increasing demands for authority decisions, transferring responsibility to others, and placing requirements on the abused women’s actions and attitudes.

    Abstract [en]

    Social workers and social work have been criticized for failing to address violence against women in adequate ways, of blaming the victim and failing to recognize domestic violence as a problem. At the same time, it is the social services that are responsible for support to abused women, according to amendments in the Social Services Act (2001). This article examines abused women’s own experiences of support in connection with the police investigation of domestic violence. It is a qualitative study with six women who all have received support from the Relationship Violence Center (RVC) in Stockholm. The main findings in the article suggest that support in connection with the judicial process is important. Women’s earlier experiences or preconceptions of the social services might prevent them from accepting support or turning to the social services for help.

     

    Abstract [sv]

    Socialarbetare och socialt arbete har blivit kritiserade för att misslyckas med att ge stöd till våldsutsatta kvinnor på ett adekvat sätt, för att lägga skulden på kvinnan och för att inte se våld mot kvinnor i nära relationer som ett problem. Samtidigt är det socialtjänsten som är ansvarig för att ge stöd till misshandlade kvinnor enligt tilläggen i socialtjänstlagen (2001). I den här artikeln undersöks våldsutsatta kvinnors egna erfarenheter av stöd i samband med polisutredningar om våld i nära relationer. Studien är kvalitativ och baseras på intervjuer med sex kvinnor som har fått stöd från Relationsvåldscentrum (RVC). De huvudsakliga resultaten i artikeln visar att stöd i samband med rättsprocessen är viktigt. Kvinnors tidigare erfarenheter eller uppfattningar om socialtjänsten kan hindra dem från att ta hjälp från eller vända sig till socialtjänsten för stöd.

    Kontrollerade unga: Tvångspraktiker på institution2018Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Låsta institutioner, tvångsvård, kriminalitet, missbruk, ungdomar på rymmen. Orden skapar bilder och väcker debatt – hur ska ungdomar som utsätter sig själva och andra för fara hanteras? I denna antologi går författarna bortom förenklade föreställningar om farliga ungdomar och hårdare tag till en mer sammansatt förståelse av tillvaron innanför institutionernas väggar. Det är en tillvaro som präglas av kontroll och säkerhetsarrangemang. Låsta dörrar och personal som bär synliga larmanordningar signalerar hur tvångspraktiker är möjliga och oavbrutet tillgängliga. Det blir samtidigt en tillvaro som producerar kontrollerade unga som anpassar sitt beteende, sina rörelser och hur de framställer sig själva för att återfå något av den kontroll de genom inlåsningen förlorat.

    Bokens olika bidrag öppnar för kontrasterande perspektiv på den låsta institutionsvården. I huvudsak står de svenska särskilda ungdomshemmen i fokus men de speglas även mot sina motsvarigheter i andra nordiska länder.

    Kontrollerade unga vänder sig till studenter och praktiskt verksamma inom socialt arbete och andra närliggande ämnen. Boken är också av intresse för politiker och beslutsfattare med koppling till den sociala ungdomsvården.

    Arbetar barn och ungdomar i Sverige? I så fall var, när och hur? Kunskap om detta tycks förvånansvärt svåråtkomlig. I artikeln diskuteras ett intressant källmaterial, nämligen ansökningar om dispens från arbetsmiljölagstiftningens bestämmelser  om barns arbete – inskränkningar i arbetstider, arbetsuppgifter och liknande – som arbetsgivare sänder in till Arbetsmiljöverket. Vad visar detta källmaterial och vilka slutsatser man kan dra av det?

    Barns arbete har under hela 1900-talet varit en viktig politisk fråga. Men när den diskuteras idag handlar det framför allt om barns arbete i tredje världen. Med utökad skolgång tycks frågor om barn och arbete tappat sin politiska betydelse i västvärlden.

    Men vad som uppfattas som arbete hör samman med hur arbete definieras. Med en bred definition framträder en bild som visar att barns arbete har betydelse både på individnivå, för familjer och i samhällsekonomin. Arbete är också idag en viktig del av barns liv och många barn vill arbeta

    Introduktion på svenska: om språkintroduktion för nyanlända på gymnasieskola och folkhögskola2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I kölvattnet av senaste årens migrationsrörelser har en rad olika initiativ tagits för att möjliggöra nyanländas etablering i det svenska samhället. En sådan insats har varit att på prov erbjuda gymnasieskolans språkintroduktionsprogram (SI) även på folkhögskola. Förhoppningen är att just denna utbildningsform är särskilt väl lämpad för nyanlända ungdomar. I denna forskningsrapport jämförs verksamheten inom SI såsom den bedrivs på två gymnasieskolor och två folkhögskolor. Analysen visar att folkhögskolans organisering av SI-verksamheten är mer flexibel och integrerad i övrig verksamhet, vilket också ger potential till en mer inkluderande undervisning.

    Studien är del av forskningsprogrammet Migration, lärande och social inkludering, som genom en longitudinell forskningsdesign söker svar på frågan om hur olika sammanhang för (unga) vuxnas språkliga lärande bidrar till deras sociala inkludering. Programmet är ett samarbete mellan forskningsmiljöerna Vuxenpedagogik och folkbildning och Socialt arbete vid Linköpings universitet.

    Becoming the role model: Youth recreational leaders, occupational choice and a will to include2018In: Discourse. Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, ISSN 0159-6306, E-ISSN 1469-3739, Vol. 39, no 6, p. 901-912Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to analyse how a discourse on the role model operates in youth recreational work. Drawing on Michel Foucault’s concepts of subjectivity, discourse and power/knowledge, the article analyses interviews with youth recreation leader students enrolled at a folk high school, and their talk about occupational choice. The analysis illustrates how a discourse on the role model emerge and operate through the ways students’ descriptions of ‘being’, and ‘doing’ intersect with their becoming as role models. The analysis raises several important questions. Should youth recreational work only target those young people who are already marginalised? Are there other subject positions than the role model, available to take up in youth recreation work? Are experiences of marginalisation necessary in order for a desirable youth recreation leader to emerge?

    Choosing one’s future?: Narratives on educational and occupational choice among folk high school participants in Sweden2020In: International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, ISSN 0251-2513, E-ISSN 1573-1782, Vol. 20, p. 31-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article poses these questions: How do participants on two different courses in folk high schools in Sweden, a basic course and a theatre course, motivate their educational and occupational choices, and what similarities and differences can be identified? We analyse interviews with students drawing on a narrative approach. Five trajectories emerge: desire to get away; desire to get back on track; desire for employment; desire to change occupation; and desire to realise one’s dreams. We argue that these trajectories reproduce existing social stratification in society, whereby certain futures are available to some people, and not to others.

    Lessons from Sweden2019In: Neoliberalism and market forces in education: Lessons from Sweden / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt & Andreas Fejes, Routledge, 2019, 1, p. 231-234Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the establishment of a free school choice, the right to establish independent schools, and possibilities to make profit on publicly funded schools, Sweden has developed one of the most market-oriented education systems in the world. Currently, Chile and New Zealand are two of the few countries where similarities to the extreme market orientation in Swedish education can be traced (see Chapter 5). Even the OECD have critiqued the Swedish education system for having become too market oriented, contributing to an increase in inequalities and segregation. This critique is highly interesting in that the OECD is a global organisation that for decades has been promoting a market-liberal reform agenda throughout the world. In the report Improving Schools in Sweden – an OECD Perspective, on the state of the Swedish education system, the organisation concludes:

    Providing full parental school choice can result in segregating students by ability and/or socio-economic background and generate greater inequities while not necessarily raising performance… . Swedish school choice arrangements do not currently have a consolidated approach to ensure equity while supporting quality. There are no clear guidelines for schools, and funding strategies do not necessarily prioritise disadvantaged students across all municipalities, possibly implying that independent schools become more selective towards more advantaged students, given the same student costs.

    (OECD, 2015, p. 101) The current market-oriented system in Sweden was also elaborated in the school commission, commissioned by the government, delivering its final report in 2017 (SOU 2017:35). The commission was made up of researchers, as well as representatives from teacher trade unions as well as public and independent schools, and had the task to make a complete overview of the entire education system in Sweden. At large, the commission confirms, based on existing research, the assessment made by the OECD, in terms of an extreme market orientation in 232Sweden, contributing to an increase in inequality and segregation. However, rather than suggesting a makeover of the Swedish education system, as was made in the early 1990s when the market reforms were introduced and implemented, the commission provides suggestions on how the current system could be fine-tuned. Or rather, the neoliberal ideas behind the last decades’ makeover of the Swedish education system were further reinforced by the commission.

    Popular education, migration and a discourse of inclusion2017In: Studies in the Education of Adults, ISSN 0266-0830, E-ISSN 1478-9833, Vol. 49, no 2, p. 214-227Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we focus on how a discourse on inclusion operates through language learning programmes for migrants. We direct our attention to a new form of activities funded by the Swedish government, Swedish from day 1, organised by popular education institutions. These activities emerged in connection to the migra- tion flows in 2015, receiving large sums in funding from the gov- ernment. They target newly arrived migrants who are waiting for a decision on their resident permit application, and the aim is to provide an introduction to the Swedish language as well as to Swedish society. Drawing on a Foucault-inspired theorization, we direct our attention to how a discourse of inclusion operate through the way these initiatives are spoken about, how these activities are described, what they are intended to attain, and what kind of citizen is shaped through such a way of speaking. We analyse policy documents produced by different actors involved in the process of Swedish from day 1, as well as case study descriptions of courses. We argue that the discourse on inclusion that emerges encompasses a wider as well as an instru- mental notion of inclusion. Migrants are positioned as ‘in deficit’, in need of knowledge in order to become included. Such know- ledge does not limit itself to knowledge of the Swedish language and knowledge about Swedish society, but also knowledge of health issues, and knowledge about how the migrants can market themselves and their competencies. We end the article by relating this discourse on inclusion to a wider discussion on neoliberal rationalities of governing.

    Adult Education and the Formation of Citizens: A Critical Interrogation2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Adult Education and the Formation of Citizens turns attention towards normative claims about who adults should become through education, and what capacities and skills adults need to develop to become included in society as ‘full’ citizens. Through these debates, adults are construed as not yet citizens, despite already being citizens in a formal sense; this book problematises such regimes of truth and their related notions of the possibilities and impossibilities of adult education and citizenship.

    Drawing on empirical examples from the two main adult education institutions in Sweden, folk high schools and municipal adult education, it argues that, through current regimes of truth, these institutions become spaces for the re-shaping of the "abnormal" citizen. The book suggests that only certain futures of citizenship and its educational provision are made possible, while other futures are ignored or even made impossible to imagine. Offering a unique focus on critically problematising the role of adult education in relation to the fostering and shaping of citizens, the book addresses the important contemporary challenges of the role of adult education in a time of migration.

    Adult Education and the Formation of Citizens will be of great interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of adult education, lifelong learning and education.

    Medborgarskap och utbildning för vuxna: om komvux, folkhögskola och medborgarskapandets praktiker2018 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utbildning för vuxna lyfts ofta fram som en lösning på en rad aktuella samhällsutmaningar. Allt från miljöfrågor till den mer övergripande målsättningen att skapa ekonomisk tillväxt. Men vuxenutbildningen har också ett tydligt demokratiskt och medborgerligt uppdrag och i denna bok utforskas detta medborgerliga uppdrag utifrån dess grundläggande antaganden, verkningssätt och konsekvenser. Det är en berättelse som å ena sidan handlar om inkludering, erkännande, framtidstro och realiserandet av drömmar, å andra sidan om normalisering, exkludering och villkorad gemenskap. Med andra ord, att bli en god samhällsmedborgare handlar inte enbart om att tillägna sig relevant kunskap. Det är lika mycket en process av att forma en person – dennes självuppfattning och -uttryck – vilket öppnar upp för en diskussion om gränserna för vuxenutbildningens uppdrag.


    Boken vänder sig till studenter inom lärarutbildningarna, yrkes- verksamma lärare, skolledare, studievägledare, folkbildare och politiker som intresserar sig för frågor om vuxenutbildningens och folkbildningens roll i att fostra framtida medborgare.

    Individualisation in Swedish adult education and the shaping of neo-liberal subjectivities2018In: Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, ISSN 0031-3831, E-ISSN 1470-1170, Vol. 62, no 3, p. 461-473Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we have analysed the ways a discourse on individualisation is taking shape within adult education in Sweden, how it operates, and what effects it has in terms of shaping student subjectivity. Drawing on a poststructural theorisation we analyse interviews with teachers and students in municipal adult education and folk high schools (FHS). The analysis illustrates how both institutions contribute to the shaping of individualised subjectivities, although differently. At the end, a general question is raised about what happens with the democratic function of adult education in general when a discourse on individualisation operates in the ways described and, more specifically, asks what is happening to FHS as an educational practice that upholds its self-image as a last bastion of a collective notion of learning and subjectivity and nurturing an educational practice of learning democracy?

    Care managers' experiences of cross-cultural needs assessment meetings: the case of late-in-life immigrants2015In: Ageing & Society, ISSN 0144-686X, E-ISSN 1469-1779, Vol. 35, no 3, p. 576-601Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on care managers' experiences of the needs assessment process is scarce even though the literature on needs assessment practice is relatively extensive. One of the research areas that has not received attention yet is the way in which care managers experience the challenges that are presumably posed by increased ethnic, cultural, linguistic and religious diversity among prospective elder care recipients. This article addresses this research gap. It is based on a project that aims to shed light on care managers' experiences of the needs assessment process in general and cross-cultural needs assessment meetings in particular. The data are constituted of focus group interviews with care managers in Sweden (N=60). In this article we focus on care managers' experiences of needs assessment with older people who have immigrated late-in-life, who come from cultures considered different from the Swedish one and who have not mastered the Swedish language. This was the group of older people that the care managers mostly thought of when asked to describe their experiences of cross-cultural needs assessment meetings. The interviewed care managers discussed the challenges that these meetings present, which were related to communication due to language barriers, different demands and expectations, insecurity regarding what is customary in such meetings, as well as perceived passivity among late-in-life immigrants. The article discusses the contributions of the findings to research on care management practices in general, as well as to needs assessment practice in particular.

    Inte på undantag: Hur föräldrar till barn med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning beskriver sina barns fritid med fokus på meningsfullhet och delaktighet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I följande studie har tio föräldrar som har barn med intellektuell funktionsnedsättning intervjuats för att undersöka hur föräldrarna beskriver sina barns fritid med fokus på meningsfullhet och delaktighet. Föräldrarna är boende i olika stora kommuner och barnen är i olika åldrar. Metoden består av semistrukturerade intervjuer som spelats in och transkriberats. Materialet från intervjuerna har sammanställts och analyserats genom innehållsanalys. Resultatet har presenterats och delats in i sex olika kategorier.  Socialkonstruktivism och delaktighet är den teori och det begrepp som använts för att tolka och förstå resultatet. Berger och Luckmanns begrepp roller, den signifikanta andra, commonsense-kunskap, face-to-face-interaktion och institutioner samt Harts Delaktighetens stege använde vi oss framför allt av. Av intervjuerna framgick att föräldrarna upplever att fritidsaktivitetsutbudet är för litet och särskilt för barnen som är bosatta i en mindre kommun och att delaktighet och meningsfullhet är viktiga komponenter i fritiden.

    Aspergers Syndrom - En konstruktion i text2012Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien med titeln Aspergers Syndrom – En konstruktion i text har en kvalitativ ansats och dess syfte är att undersöka hur Aspergers Syndrom, AS, konstrueras i självbiografiska böcker skrivna av personer som själva fått diagnosen AS. Vi har en socialkonstruktionistisk utgångspunkt. Den metod vi använder oss av är inspirerad av manifest textanalys. Självbiografierna har valts ut genom två uppställda kriterier, att de ska vara skrivna av personerna själva som har fått diagnosen AS samt att det klart och tydligt ska framgå att det är just AS, eller högfungerande autism, de har. Analysen är gjord utifrån symbolisk interaktionism och Goffmans stigmateori.

    Uppmärksamheten för neuropsykiatriska funktionsnedsättningar, NPF, som till exempel AS, ADHD, ADD med flera, har under de senaste femton åren ökat i såväl forskningssyfte som i media (Sandberg, 2011; Sandberg, Älfvåg & Burman, 2011). Vi har genom media sett en trend i att söka besvara avvikanden och då även allvarliga brott genom olika NPF-diagnoser. Studien där vi undersöker AS genom ett mer subjektivt perspektiv är viktig av flera orsaker. Vi tror att det finns en risk att människor som inte är invigda i hur livet för de som fått diagnosen AS ser ut, eller som bara ser AS genom exempelvis tidningsrubriker, enbart ser diagnosen och inte människan bakom. På så vis riskerar människor med AS att ses som negativt avvikande och inte som de unika och kompetenta personer de är. Vår studie visar på en väldigt heterogen grupp med såväl olikheter som likheter. Känslan av att vara avvikande från de "normala" är påtaglig liksom känslan att stå utanför den sociala gemenskapen.

    Expert Knowledge as a Condition of the Rhetorical Situation in Criminal Cases2017In: Oslo Law Review, E-ISSN 2387-3299, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 28-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the use of expert knowledge as a basis for legal decisions in serious criminal cases. Using a model that describes rhetorical situations, as well as empirical material based on 150 court decisions, the aim is to analyse the conditions surrounding the use of expert evidence in criminal law processes, to what extent and by whom such evidence is used, and how it affects the outcome of the cases. The rhetorical situation in criminal cases is reconstructed to include the exigence (urgent issue that requires addressing) and, thereby, the related discourse, in order to retrieve relevant conditions, which could be identified as evidentially favourable or unfavourable to the suspect and the prosecutor respectively. It is concluded that there is a theoretical imbalance between the parties to the benefit of the defendant. Empirically grounded analysis of the criminal cases shows, however, that the defendant’s theoretical advantage does not correspond to the actual situation in court. The results indicate that the defendant usually adopts a passive stance and therefore does not use favourable constraints effectively. The study also shows that the defendant’s chances of winning the case increase when they use written expert evidence and expert witnesses.

    Att (inte) bli en kvinnomisshandlare2012In: Andra män: Maskulinitet, normskapande och jämställdhet / [ed] Lucas Gottzén och Rickard Jonsson, Gleerups Utbildning AB, 2012, 1, p. 149-165Chapter 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.

    Abstract [en]

    Feminist researchers have produced a large body of critical scholarship on methodologies as they pertain to the study of women. However, questions about issues such as power, positionality and ethics in research related to men and masculinities have remained largely unaddressed. This is despite the fact that research on men and masculinities has grown exponentially in recent years, as is evidenced by the increasing number of scholarly books and journals on the subject.  In this book researchers reflect on their experiences of studying men and masculinities from the perspective of topics ranging from internet dating and violence to social inclusion and rock climbing. They also canvass how we can address difference and diversity amongst men and between masculinities in our methodological approaches. Through the lens of masculinity studies the authors contribute to broader methodological debates about subjects such as field access, insider-outsider positioning and qualitative versus quantitative approaches

    Abstract [sv]

    I dagens diskussioner kring lärande återkommer frågan om vad som händer vid sidan av etablerade utbildningar och institutioner. Vilket lärande äger rum utanför den organiserade undervisningen och vad kännetecknar detta lärande?

    Familjeliv och lärande tar steget ut från klassrummen och placerar familjen i centrum. Med utgångspunkt i tre teman - identitetsaktiviteter, studieaktiviteter och fritidsaktiviteter - analyserar författarna olika praktiker där barn och vuxna ingår, samt sätter in familjen i ett lärandeperspektiv.

    Varje tema illustreras och problematiseras genom ett antal kapitel som utifrån angelägna frågor bidrar med värdefull inblick och kritiska reflektioner kring familjers sociala samspel.Boken vänder sig till blivande och verksamma lärare samt andra pedagoger. Alla som intresserar sig för små och stora människors lärande i vardagen kan hitta kunskap och inspiration här.

    The present paper explores middle‐class fathers’ educational work by studying how they and their partners are involved in their children’s education at home, in school, and how they investigate school options and make decisions about educational issues. Drawing on data from an ethnographic study of 30 dual‐earner couples in the Greater Los Angeles area, this article analyses how fathers position themselves in relation to discourses on parental involvement in education. In order to demonstrate the variety of ways fathers are involved three case studies are presented. It is illustrated how the men, by drawing on a discourse on involved fatherhood, position themselves in line with an ideal of parental involvement in education. Fathers who are doing less educational work than their spouses offer accounts for not taking a greater educational responsibility by drawing on a breadwinner discourse or by depicting mothers as gatekeepers of father involvement.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the monstrous “woman batterer” is used as a figuration and made a point of departure in order to destabilise masculine ontology. The monster is here seen as a deviant figure that gives meaning to the normal, but also as a figure that blurs the borders between the strange/unfamiliar and the known/familiar due to its contingent ontological position. This argument is developed by analysing two sources of material: a newspaper column by a conservative male author, which shows how partner-violent men are understood as monstrous woman batterers, who are seen as the Other of “normal”, gender-equal Swedish men; and qualitative interviews with 44 partner-violent men, demonstrating how they distance themselves from the “woman batterer” figure and instead understand the woman batterer as a deviant and monstrous masculinity they do not want to be associated with. The fact that “normal” men cannot completely disassociate from the monster makes it threatening – it endangers the ontological coherence of masculinity. Paradoxically, the woman batterer therefore enables a “monstrous future” – it opens up for a volatile and vulnerable masculine becoming.

    Abstract [en]

    Children live their lives across various social settings, including homes, kindergartens, schools and different kinds of institutions. The different contributions of this book focus on children's perspectives, and on how children learn and develop through taking part in activities in social communities such as families, peer groups, classrooms, and day care institutions. This collection illustrates different ways of dealing with varying social contexts, and the research presented involves questions about children's world-making, anchored in children's daily lives. The studies are inspired by Vygotsky's theory of development (1998), as well as childhood sociology. One of the aims has been to problematice time, change, continuity, developmental trajectories, and transitions in order to identify novel ways of discussing 'development' in relation to different trajectories through childhood and youth.

    Abstract [sv]

    För tio år sedan publicerade sociologen Anne-Lie Steen en översikt av den svenska forskningen kring mäns våld mot kvinnor. I denna beskrevs forskningsområdet som ett ”diskursivt slagfält”. Detta är ett minst sagt passande uttryck. Det finns få områden inom samhällsvetenskap och genusforskning som väcker så mycket ont blod. Få forskningsområden där den akademiska debatten stundtals liknat skyttegravskrig. De hårda debatterna har förts mellan feminister och individualpsykologer, men också mellan olika feministiska positioner.

    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on qualitative interviews with 44 men in batterer interventions programs, the present article focuses on responses to men’s violence against women, particularly on violent men’s expected and experienced responses from their social networks. The participants see violence against women as morally reprehensible since men are not supposed to use violence against “weaker” individuals (e.g. women) and that couple relationships are supposed to be characterized by mutual respect. They argue that their social networks share this view of interpersonal violence. As a consequence of breaching cultural norms on violence and gender, the men experience their violence as shameful. Shame is connected to fears of being judged and rejected. The experience of shame causes the men to be careful of telling others about their violence and seeking emotional support from friends and family in order to end violence. Some men’s experiences confirm their expected critical response, but most men receive relatively uncritical actual response. These responses are related to different narrative strategies that the men employ when disclosing their violence. The men contextualize their violence by, for instance, emphasizing their personal crisis, addiction, or their partner’s provocations. They also redefine their violence, for instance, they rather talk about their “aggression issues” than in terms of assault. When disclosing their violence, the men may also condemn their own violence by emphasizing that they understand that they have acted morally wrong and that they take full responsibility for their violence. Finally, the men may present themselves as remorseful by dealing with their “issues” and being in therapy. Through condemning their own actions as shameful, the men are able align with normative notions of masculinity and make themselves intelligible.

    Abstract [sv]

    Antologi om föräldraskap ur ett historiskt respektive sociologiskt perspektiv. Synen på föräldraskapet förändras över tid. Föräldraskapet formas av politik, ekonomisk styrning, vetenskap och allmänna normer. Samhällets syn på kön, klass och etnicitet spelar också in i bilden av vad ett bra föräldraskap är. Adoption, assisterad befruktning och ensamma mödrar är några teman som får belysa de senaste hundra årens syn på föräldraskap
