    Implementing gender policies through gender training2012In: Gender mainstreaming in public sector organisations: policy implications and practical applications / [ed] Kristina Lindholm, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2012, p. 167-187Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender training is regarded as one of the more central features of gender mainstreaming Gender knowledge is considered necessary for investigating and analysing existing polices and processes and for the integration of a gender perspective. Training for staff and managers affected by the "new" gender mainstreaming policy has also been regarded as essential. Gender knowledge is required in order to understand what and why something should be done and which skills are necessary in order to put the proposed measures in place. Without this knowledge and these skills the process will be in danger of coming to a halt. Knowledge is also considered to minimise the risk of resistance to gender equality objectives. Major training efforts are therefore common in gender mainstreaming initiatives.

    Making equality work: Ambiguities, conflicts and change agents in the implementation of equality policies in public sector organisations2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this study is to contribute to knowledge about the implementation of equality policies in public sector organisations. This is achieved through the development of a theoretical framework of feminist implementation studies. It involves the study of influential factors that impact upon the implementation process, with the aim of contributing to an understanding of the outcome of implementation processes within the equality policy field. The methodology used is based on qualitative case study research combined with a meta-analysis that allows for comparisons across cases. Four initiatives in the implementation of gender mainstreaming strategy were studied in different contexts, namely, two local municipalities and one government agency in Sweden. The main questions asked are: How was gender mainstreaming implemented? What were the main factors influencing the implementation process and why? What was the impact of change actors working to implement gender mainstreaming? The case studies were conducted using an interactive research approach where the different dilemmas encountered by the gender mainstreaming practitioners are used as a starting point for developing a joint learning process. The thesis comprises an introduction and five published papers. The main findings of the study include how the implementation process developed over time and the impact of the micropractices of the “gender mainstreamers” involved. The study provides insights into the factors influencing the implementation process, and how these factors change over time. Different types and levels of conflict, together and interlinked with different ambiguities, affect the practical work where dilemmas inherent in the concepts of “gender”, “equality” and “change” become central. Overall, the study shows how the specific preconditions for implementation of gender mainstreaming make the local arenas of implementation crucial for understanding the outcomes.

    Abstract [en]

    In recent years it has become more common to talk about gender equality in public organisations as part of the ambition to modernise the public sector in general. The purpose of the integration of a gender perspective is believed to create a better service for citizens. Also, in the Programme for Gender Mainstreaming, an outspoken ambition has been to "guarantee the quality of publicly financed activities" in order to ensure that the work "meets the conditions ofboth sexes and that high quality and good results are achieved for women, men, girls and boys" (application for fonds to support the gender mainstreaming oflocal authority activities, SALAR and government decision IJ2007/3277/JÄM).

    2011 (English)In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 2-3, p. 81-96Article in journal (Refereed) Published
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses how the actors involved with integrating a gender perspective into mainstream organizational processes have to deal with many difficult-to-solve questions or dilemmas in their everyday work. The strategies used to implement gender mainstreaming rests on various and often contradictory understandings of gender, gender equality and change strategies. The article draws on two case studies in public organizations working with gender mainstreaming where qualitative interviews and reflection- and analysis- and reflection seminars have been conducted with actors involved in the project. The main aim of the article is to discuss an interactive research approach as a way to reflect on various understandings and underlying assumptions that different change strategies are based on. Theoretically the paper uses Michael Billig’s concept of ideological dilemmas as well as theories on gender equality, organizational change and interactive research. A central argument is that contradictions can be problematic if they are ignored but fruitful if used as a starting point for discussions about how future change strategies can be formed. Julia Nentwich’s notion of “playing around” is discussed as a way to reflect and develop strategies based on the specific dilemmas found in the cases studies. Different phases in the interactive approach is described and discussed; the problem orientation phase, the examination phase and the analysis- and reflection phase.

    2012 (English)In: Promoting Innovation: Policies, practices and procedures / [ed] Susanne Andersson, Karin Berglund, Ewa Gunnarsson and Elisabeth Sundin, Stockholm: Vinnova , 2012, p. 239-269Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes and discusses actions taken to integrate a gender perspective (gender mainstreaming) within the Swedish government agency of VINNOVA. Despite the popularity of gender mainstreaming, its rapid spread and adoption both in Sweden and internationally, it is a largely contested concept. Theorists on gender mainstreaming suggest that the strategy may lead to co-optation with the dominant discourse in an organisation and thus no transformation of the current agenda taking place. Others have argued that it provides a possibility to change by addressing root causes. Previous studies of the implementation of the gender mainstreaming strategy have often been built on analyses on a theoretical or policy level. This chapter takes a different approach by examining the micro-practices developed by actors in public organisations when implementing gender mainstreaming strategies. This is done by examining the roles of both actors and agency. The chapter is based on the results of a case study of the work at VINNOVA; these results are initially described in the article based on the actors’ own accounts of their work. The intriguing “story” of developments in the organisation is followed by a discussion of the micro-practices and strategies in use, based on notions of tempered radicalism (Meyerson and Scully 1995, Meyerson, 2001ab) and small-wins strategies (Weick 1984). The questions of cooptation and subversiveness are problematised through an examination of different strategies of resistance and negotiation (Swan and Fox 2010) used in and around the work. In this context, notions of actors and agency are seen as interlinked, bringing together political intervention and professional and personal positioning (Parsons and Priola 2012) in the practical equality work.

    Abstract [en]

    An important issue in recent years in the gender equality field deals with effects produced by gender equality initiatives. Reports of difficulties such as resistance, obstacles and a lack of resources are common and have occurred for as long as gender equality work has been carried out. Other difficulties which have been highlighted are how gender equality work runs the risk of being reduced to technocratic methods rather than dealing with the content of policies applied (Squires 2007, Walby 2009, Rönnblom 2011). Another related discussion, has dealt with the fact that gender equality initiatives are often runas short-term projects in which good results can be achieved, but where the work ceases when funds run out, thereby limiting the scope for long-term effects (Lindholm 2011). Research hasat the same time shown that gender equality from an historical perspective has brought great progress in many areas of society (Hearn 2012, Walby 2009). This appears to be something of a paradox. Does gender equality development take place parallel with - or in spite of gender equality work? Or is there something in gender equality initiatives that we are unable to capture? In this chapter, on the basis of studies of practical work with gender equality, we wish to present and analyse attempts to solve the complex social problem that gender inequality represents.

    The aim of this chapter is to deepen the reasoning concerning the question of what results and effects we can see from gender equality initiatives, what we cannot see, and the reasons for this. We take as our starting point a study of the work on following up results and effects from gender mainstreaming in an initiative on gender mainstreaming in Swedish municipalities and county councils. Can there be results and effects from gender mainstreaming which are not known, or which co-workers do not understand the importance of the so-called surprising and unexpected effects? We also want to study whether undesired results and effects take place, and how these can be managed.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen och undersökningen är en observationsstudie på en fritidsgård i Östergötland som handlar om hur fritidseldarna på fritidsgården möter och bemöter ungdomarna på gården ur ett intersektionellt perspektiv och teoretisk grund med fokus på genus, sexualitet, etnicitet, klass och ålder. Syftet med undersökningen är att granska verksamheten och fritidsledarnas arbete under kvällstid och på vilka sätt de skapar positiva samt negativa möten med ungdomarna men undersökningen besvarar även vilka föreställningar som fritidseldarna har kring genus, sexualitet, etnicitet, klass och ålder samt hur de här föreställningarna påverkar de möten som uppstår.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    The question of the human and the nonhuman, how they are produced and inscribed on bodies, has been the subject to a burgeoning amount of research. In this paper I'd like to offer an analysis of what seems to constitute a gap in our theories of the nonhuman, that is the question of dead – radically inert, mute and vulnerable – bodies. By reference to a Greek word sema, which denominated both a ‘tomb’, a ‘sign’ and a ‘trace’, I would like to investigate the three-fold context in which the dead bodies are enmeshed: the material, the discursive and the spectral one. Drawing on the concept of the ‘remnant’ (G. Agamben) and the ‘spectre’ (J. Derrida) I will pose a question regarding the ways in which dead bodies are included in power relations, powers of visibility and normalisation, and how they may challenge them. Finally, I will offer a project of ‘materialistic hauntology’, an ethical stand towards bodies that are in course of dematerialising, but that still matter.

    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”.

    Abstract [en]

    In this presentation we would like to reflect on the experience of being a feminist philosopher in the context of Polish Academia. The starting point for our reflections would be our joint project "Feminist New Materialism” that was developed as a part of "Patterns Lectures” programme supported by ERSTE Foundation and WUS Austria and took place in academic year 2014/15 in the Institute of Philosophy, University of Warsaw. Departing from this experience, we aim at providing a material analysis of being a young, feminist academic in Poland. On the one hand, we would like to diagnose and sketch the main power structures tendencies (i.e. neoliberal university in late capitalism, gender backlash, precariousness of early stage researchers, health issues influencing academic performances, phobia against inter/cross/transdisciplinary researches and researchers, establishing frames of "legitimate philosophy/science” versus "intellectual marsh”). Shared bodily vulnerability and "somatechnics of swallowing” to useNikki Sullivan’s term, emerge from our reflections attesting to the urgent need to rethink the way academia is organized (and this exceeds the Polish context). How to address this shared bodily vulnerability in academia? How to shape teaching/learning processes anew? How to organize institutional collaboration (students-academics-university administration)? To answer those questions we would use our concept of "stigmergic politics” and "com(mon)passion” – notions that take their inspiration in new materialist philosophy

    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

    Gender as a practical concern in children's management of play participation2011In: Conversation and Gender / [ed] Susan A. Speer & Elizabeth Stokoe, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press , 2011, 1, p. 294-309Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Conversation analysts have begun to challenge long-cherished assumptions about the relationship between gender and language, asking new questions about the interactional study of gender and providing fresh insights into the ways it may be studied empirically. Drawing on a lively set of audio- and video-recorded materials of real-life interactions, including domestic telephone calls, children's play, mediation sessions, police-suspect interviews, psychiatric assessments and calls to telephone helplines, this volume is the first to showcase the latest thinking and cutting-edge research of an international group of scholars working on topics at the intersection of gender and conversation analysis. Theoretically, it pushes forward the boundaries of our understanding of the relationship between conversation and gender, charting new and exciting territory. Methodologically, it offers readers a clear, practical understanding of how to analyse gender using conversation analysis, by presenting detailed demonstrations of this method in use.

    Om miljöproblemen hänger på mig: Individer förhandlar sitt ansvar för miljön2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last decade, the behaviors and lifestyles of the Swedish public have been depicted as having important environmental effects by both politicians and the media in Sweden. In this thesis, this is regarded as part of an ongoing tendency to individualize environmental responsibilities. Using a feminist poststructuralist point of departure, this individualized environmental responsibility is understood as a particular discourse that frames individuals as essential actors in handling environmental problems. How individuals position themselves in relation to the reasonableness and meaning of these responsibilities, however, is still an open question.

    The aim is to explore how individuals make scnse of and negotiate the discourse of individual environmental responsibility in group discussions. Twelve focus group conversations involving people in various life situations and with various expericnces of environmental issues and travelling are analyzed. The analysis investigates how the focus group participants position themselves in relation to the discoursc and, thus, negotiate its meaning and relevance. The analysis seeks to understand what other discourses support, compete with, or challenge the discourse of individual environmental responsibility in order to illuminate how individuals can incorporate or resist this particular discursive description of the world. The thesis also investigates what subject positions are made troubled or untroubled by the focus group participants, which reveals how gender and dass discourses position individuals as in various ways or to various degrees responsible for their individual impact on the environment.

    The analysis suggests that the discourse of individual environmental responsibility privileges independent, self-governing individuals, that is, people who assume responsibility without demanding either societal or social support. Some focus group participants depict individual environmental responsibility as morally significant and beneficial, while others depict it as unrealistic and unacceptable. The discourse seems to engender competition between individuals. Both people acting as highly environmentally responsible and people acting as unable or unwilling to take environmental responsibility are framed as troubled individuals in the conversations. Concurrently, other potential environmentally responsible actors and political scenes are often neglected. The discourse of individual environmental responsibility dominates; for some focus group participants, this discourse leads toa lack of faith in societal ability to handle environmental problems.

    Fotbollsguden, skyttekungen och busen: Om framställningen av maskulinitet och status i sportmedia2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med min uppsats är att titta på hur maskulinitet och status framställs i sportmedia. Att sportvärlden är dominerad av män är en allmänt vedertagen uppfattning. Det är också en av anledningarna till att jag valt att titta på hur manlighet och maskulinitet framställ i just sport och idrottssammanhang. Massmedia, så som, tidningar, tv, radio och Internet, har inflytande på hur vi som individer i det postmoderna samhället uppfattar och skapar vår verklighet. Media påverkar oss mer än vi tror och bidrar därför till våra föreställningar och våra bilder av idrott. I detta fall har jag valt att använda mig av Aftonbladets och DNs sportbilagor. Sportmedia kan sägas bidra till våra föreställningar om vad det är att vara en ”riktigt man”. Professionella idrottsmän har ofta en hög statusposition i samhället både utifrån sina ekonomiska förutsättningar, samt att de kan sägas ha en livsstil som även bidrar till hög status. I detta fall blir livsstilen, en del av statuspositionen. Det handlar det inte enbart om vad de presterar i sin idrott utan mycket annat såsom, att de upphöjs till varumärken (genom reklam eller sponsring) eller, genom att de får medial uppmärksamhet och markandsföring. Vi ska beundra deras livsstil och vi ska förknippa dem med lycka och ungdomlighet. Idrottsmän är också upphöjda som symboler eller ikoner för sitt land eller lag.

    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.

    Smokeless homes: Challenges for Increasing Use of Improved Biomass Cookstoves in Kisumu, Kenya.2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In Kenya, 69 percent of populations depend on biomass fuels to meet their cooking needs. The incomplete combustion of biomass is performed in insufficiently ventilated settings thus exposing human health and environment to toxic pollution. To date, women and children in resource limited settings have been most vulnerable to severe respiratory infections. The promotion of the Improved Biomass Cookstoves has become a popular issue in policy, research and practice. Community Based Organizations have however faced serious challenges in increasing sustainable use of the cookstoves among users. This qualitative study investigates the role of Community Based Organizations in promoting the Improved Biomass Cookstoves through women’s empowerment initiatives. It applies focus group interviews, questionnaire and formal interviews. 11 interview forms were administered to 30 women, 2 key informants and 3 implementing Community Based Organization representatives in Dunga wetland community. A combination of previous research and this empirical study show that economic resources, small diameter stove designs as well as insufficient policy support hinder effective stove programmes. While there is general adoption, women lack sufficient income and ownership of land which is a significant resource to empowerment. Women informal financial networks are instrumental in driving behavioral change towards clean cooking in the community. Sufficient gender sensitive policy intervention and support can provide effective channels to ensure sustainable incomes of women, livelihoods and stove use.

    “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.

    Strukturerade sysselsättningar och fria aktiviteter vid HVB-hem: En intervjustudie om ensamkommande flyktingbarns sysselsättningar vid HVB-hem ur personalens perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    De ensamkommande flyktingbarnen som kommer till mottagarlandet hamnar oftast på HVB-hem, inspektionen för vård och omsorg, där de får bo tills de är självständiga nog att flytta därifrån till ett eget boende. Studiens syfte är att studera hur personal på HVB-hem för ensamkommande flyktingbarn arbetar med barnens fritid. Främst för att se hur personalen arbetar  i relation till frågor som rör barns delaktighet i samband med strukturerade aktiviteter jämfört med barnens egna val av sysselsättningar. Vi har genomfört tio semistrukturerade intervjuer med personal som arbetar på HVB-hem. Utifrån personalens utsagor  så kan vi konstatera att grunden till barnens delaktighet är att personalen ska utgå ifrån varje barns enskilda behov.

    Women have a stronger say in couples decisions to have a child2017In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 54, no 4, p. 307-312Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden stands out as a forerunner in the development of gender equality and family dynamics. To deepen the knowledge on power distribution and gender dynamics of couple relations, we investigate how women and mens childbearing intentions influence actual childbearing behavior. The Young Adult Panel Study (YAPS) has information on both partners childbearing intentions in 2009, which we follow for five years with register data on childbearing. The results indicate that womens childbearing intentions are more important than mens intentions in determining actual childbirths.

    Lillan är ingen vanlig flicka: En semiotisk analys av genusframställan i Sveriges Televisions julkalendrar 1996 och 20072009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 25 credits / 37,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker hur genus skapas och iscensätts i Sveriges Televisions julkalendrar 1996 och 2007 samt om det skett någon förändring över tid vad gäller skapandet och framställandet. Detta undersöks genom en semiotisk analys samt med queerteori som teoretisk utgångspunkt. Undersökningen visar att julkalendrarna i många fall bidrar till ett vidmakthållande av stereotypa könsroller. Man kan dock urskilja en förändring mellan de båda kalendrarna då den senast sända ger ett intryck av att producenten gjort medvetna val för att undvika ett reproducerande av könsstereotyperna.

    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).

    Den slentrianmässiga genuskonstruktionen: – Hur det vardagliga språkbruket i skol- och fritidsmiljön formar flickor och pojkar2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur genus skapas och upprätthålls inom skol- och fritidshemsverksamhet. Detta med fokus på hur det uttrycks språkligt. Studien besvaras med följande frågeställningar: Hur kommer föreställningar och förväntningar om hur man kan och bör vara som flicka/pojke till uttryck på fritidshemmet? Hur formar och formas genusnormer i skolan/fritidshemmet genom vårt språkbruk?

    I studien så lyfts både nationell och internationell forskning som berör genuskonstruktion, både mer generellt men även med fokus på språk.

    Studien har haft en kvalitativ ansats med metoden deltagande observation för att utforska elevers språkbruk som har direkt koppling till genus. Tre klasser i årskurs tre har observerats. Dessa klasser sammanslogs till ett fritidshem på eftermiddagarna. Materialet har analyserats genom tematisk analys. De övergripande temana är 'Sådana är flickor – sådana är pojkar' som tar upp situationer där elever uttrycker hur pojkar och flickor är/bör vara. Temat 'Distansering / Rivalitet' tar upp situationer där elever på något vis visar distansering och/eller rivalitet till motsatta könet. Det sista temat 'Förhandla normer' handlar om situationer där elever bryter mot rådande normer.

    Resultatet i studien visar att elevers språkliga delaktighet i genuskonstruktion gick att observera. Eleverna uttryckte på olika sätt hur de upplever att pojkar och flickor är/bör vara. En stor del av studiens resultat gick i linje med rådande normer men det uppkom även exempel där elever bryter dessa.

    Bortom könsbinära normer: Kön, kropp och könsidentitet i statliga diskurser och transpersoners berättelser.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Inom transvården finns idéer om att kön, kropp och identitet är stabila och binära. Transvården eftersträvar att upprätthålla denna illusion med följden att transpersoner som inte ser en identitet/könsuttryck inom denna idé som nödvändig, exkluderas transvården. Jag lyfter i den här uppsatsen fram några transpersoners berättelser vilka i dagsläget är exkluderade transvården. Dessa personers resonemang gällande kön, kropp och identitet går på diagonalen med transvården och samhällets förgivettagande om att dessa komponenter ska följa en specifik ordning. Uppsatsens material visar på att transvården i hänsyn till mänskliga rättigheter, mina deltagares självbestämmande över den egna kroppen och identiteten samt mental hälsa, måste transvården ta större hänsyn till klienters behov istället för att fokusera på ett reproducerande och befästande utav socialt konstruerad idealisk maskulinitet/femininitet, kropp och identitet. Materialet visar att transfobi är lika komplext som genus och är en aktion mot ett kulturellt obegripligt genus. Genus görs performativt genom ett system av sociala institutioner, inom dessa institutioner återfinns transfobin. Det handlar bland annat om intrapersonella möten, könssegregerande praktiker på badet och binär diskurs inom transvården, således visar jag att diagnosen könsidentitetsstörning är ett uttryck för transfobi då den normaliserar det binära och staten legitimeras kontroll och rollen som grindvakt i fråga om hur vi förkroppsligar subjekt.

    Normativitetens gränser: En antologi om att förhålla sig till normer kring kön och sexualitet i relation till identitet och livsvillkor2012Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Antologin, som har sin utgångspunkt i tema Identitet & Livsvillkor, problematiserar samhällets normativa föreställningar i förhållande till sexualitet och kön. Studieområdet speglar en vision om att förändra samhället, där individen inte bör begränsa sitt identitetsskapande på grund av normaliseringsprocesser. Detta belyses ur fyra olika perspektiv som utgår ifrån deltagarnas livsberättelser och erfarenheter. I det första bidraget diskuterar Elvira Ekström i Könad prevention - en studie om unga och deras tankar kring sex och preventivmedel hur ungdomar förhåller sig till föreställningar om sexualitet och preventivmedel. Nästa kapitel "Det här känns jobbigt för mig och vi måste prata" – en studie om heteronormens betydelse för personer med LHBQ - identiteter skrivet av Sandra Johansen, presenterar individers erfarenheter av att placeras utanför heteronormativitetens ramar. Det tredje antologibidraget, Fånge i en maskulin identitet – en studie om att förhålla sig till manliga normer inom anstaltsmiljöer, är skrivet av Malin Magnusson och belyser hur maskuliniteter uttrycks och reproduceras i relation till heteronormativitet och vad detta har för konsekvenser. I det sista kapitlet, "Du ser ju inte ut som en prostituerad!" – en studie om sexsäljares erfarenheter uppmärksammar Amanda Påhlsson hur individer som säljer sex upplever sig bli bemötta och vilka föreställningar de bör förhålla sig till. Samtliga delar visar på hur normer både produceras och reproduceras kontextuellt och i interaktion mellan individer och samhälle.

    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.

    "Sexual pleasure on equal terms": Young women´s ideal sexual situations2012In: Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology, ISSN 0167-482X, E-ISSN 1743-8942, Vol. 33, no 3, p. 129-134Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: We wanted to identify young women’s ideal images of sexual situations and expectations of themselves in sexual situations.

    Methods: We conducted audiotaped qualitative individual interviews with 14 women aged 14 to 20 years, visiting two youth centers in Sweden. The data were analyzed with constant comparative analysis, the basis of grounded theory methodology.

    Results: The women’s ideal sexual situations in heterosexual practice were characterized by sexual pleasure on equal terms, implying that no one dominates and both partners get pleasure. There were obstacles to reaching this ideal, such as influences from social norms and demands, and experiences of the partner’s “own race”. An incentive to reach the ideal sexual situation was the wish to experience the source of pleasure.

    Conclusions: Our research further accentuates the importance of finding ways to focus on the complexity of unequal gender norms in youth heterosexuality. A better understanding of these cognitions is essential and useful among professionals working with youths´ sexual health.

    En debatt om kollektivhus i det tidiga 1930-talet: Den gifta kvinnan möter moderniteten2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats handlar om en debatt, som fördes i en brytningstid, då den gifta kvinnans rätt till yrkesarbete ifrågasattes. Ett funktionalistiskt förslag om kollektivhus, där hushållsarbetet och en del av barnavården skulle skötas av kollektivt anställd personal, avsåg att underlätta kvinnans yrkesarbete. Den gällande normen förutsatte, att den gifta kvinnan var hemarbetande och mannen försörjare. Debatten kom att kretsa kring hustruns plikter mot familjen och barnens liv i det kollektiva huset. Här stod bevarare av traditionen mot anhängare av ett nytt familjemönster.

    Syftet har varit att fokusera anhängare och motståndare och analysera deras argument och strategier. Analysen har skett mot bakgrund av den pågående moderniseringsprocessen och den modernitet, som innebar nya livsvillkor för kvinnan och familjen. Yvonne Hirdmans genuskontraktsteori med endast ett dominerande husmoderskontrakt under mellankrigstiden diskuteras och ifrågasätts.

    Kvinnor i spetsen: Kvinnokultur och klasstillhörighet2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetet med textilier går som en röd tråd genom kvinnors historia, och den textila kunskapen ingår i kvinnlig tradition och kvinnlig kultur.Vadstena med omnejd har under århundraden varit centrum för knyppling. Här knypplade man inte bara för husbehov, utan försäljning av knypplade alster utgjorde ofta ett viktigt bidrag till hushållet. Knyppling och knypplad spets kan främst förknippas med tre områden. Här återfinns själva knypplingen och knypplerskorna, försäljningen via förläggare och spetsgångare, och till sist de som köpte alstren.

    Knyppling har både en kulturell och social historia. Det finns mycket litet dokumenterat kring de kvinnor som producerade knypplade spetsar. I de flesta böcker om knyppling är knypplerskorna i stort sätt anonyma, och de flesta källor tiger still om den stora gruppen av knypplande kvinnor. Med tanke på den betydelse som knyppling haft för Vadstena med omnejd så är det något av en paradox att de människor som varit sysselsatta med hantverket i stort sätt är okända för oss. Mycket kvinnoarbete har utförts i hemmen och därmed fått en stämpel av anonymitet, och därför har kvinnornas liv och levnadsöden inte dokumenterats. I uppsatsen belyses frågor om klasstillhörighet för knypplerskor, spetsgångare och förläggare och vilka relationer som fanns mellan grupperna. Vilken betydelse arbetet med textilt arbete haft socialt, kulturellt och ekonomiskt belyses även , liksom hur man från feministiskt håll sett på kvinnor och textilt arbete

    Beyond stereotypes? Talking about gender in school booktalk2008In: Ethnography and Education, ISSN 1745-7823, E-ISSN 1745-7831, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 129-144Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish educational system states that work in schools should depict and mediate equality. One way of achieving this is through fiction, which according to the syllabus provides students with knowledge about the living conditions of women and men during different epochs and places. The present paper examines gender in a Swedish school, analysing ‘book club’ discussions, using a discursive approach. The data consist of video-recorded teacher-led booktalk sessions, involving small groups of pupils in grades 4_7. It was found that the teachers and/or the pupils invoked gender issues in all book club sessions. The fictive events were, at times, discussed in gender-stereotyped ways. Yet, the teachers and pupils also transcended gender stereotypes in several cases. In many of those cases, there was a generational pattern, in that the participants tended to apply less stereotyped thinking when talking about fictive characters of their own age.

    "Let's talk about love": pupils' constructions of heterosexual love relations in About a Boy2009In: GEA Conference – Paper & Symposium Abstracts, 2009, p. 170-171Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish educational system states that work in schools should depict and mediate equality. One way of achieving this is through fiction, which according to the syllabus provides students with knowledge about the living conditions of women and men during different epochs and places. An arena for unveiling gendered power patterns is heterosexual love relations. School may fear that feature films transmit gender stereotypes and unrealistic romantic images of heterosexual love. However, researchers such as Radway (1984) and Walkerdine (1990, 2007) stress the importance of not only studying the text itself (be it a book, a film or a video game), but also the use and the reception of it, in the analysis of fiction as a meaning-making artefact. The present paper examines pupils- constructions of heterosexual love analysing the use of film as an educational tool, from a discursive approach. The data consist of pupil-produced film manuscript and essays and video-recordings of pupils- group conversations, after watching one of the film About a Boy during school hours in Year 9 and 10. The pupils discussed the protagonists whereabouts- putting leading a calm fulfilling life alone (-an island-) against a meaningful life together with a partner and children - necessarily your own biological ones - (-a family- or an -archipelago-). The present paper contributes new empirical knowledge about how young people are -doing gender- (West and Zimmerman 1987) in a natural setting - an educational context - that celebrates equality values.

    The Pimp and the Happy Whore: “Doing Gender” in Film Talk in a School Setting2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, ISSN 0031-3831, E-ISSN 1470-1170, Vol. 54, no 6, p. 581-596Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper concerns the use of film for eliciting discussions of fundamental values in an upper secondary school setting. In this case, Lilya 4-ever, a feature film about sex trafficking, is used. The present paper contributes some empirical knowledge about how young people are “doing gender” in a natural setting—an educational context—that celebrates equality values. The examples from a group discussion between pupils reveal a balance between performing the school task, discussing the questions on the sheet the teacher provided, and working on their private identities, which here includes social interplay that among teenagers could involve rejecting an academic identity. The analysis concerns how pupils use discourses drawn from a film in that balancing act. The paper explores how discourses on sex are used to gain power in conversation, to challenge male sexuality, and to reject victimization.

    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.

    Världens starkaste björn - normbrytare eller förstärkare?: En text- och bildanalys av hur kön framställs i serietidningen Bamse2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien som följer syftar till att analysera hur genus ”görs” i sex stycken olika Bamsetidningar utspridda över åren 1982–2016. En innehållsanalys av komparativ karaktär ur ett historiskt perspektiv har gjorts på både bild och text utifrån ett genusperspektiv där följande teman har aktualiserats: hur pojkar och flickor framställs samt rollindelning mellan könen. 

    Resultaten visar att genusrepresentationerna i tidningarna domineras av stereotypa könsroller, samtidigt som det förekommer enstaka utmaningar av dessa stereotypa könsroller i form av könsöverskridande karaktärer och ombytta roller. 

    Något som är väldigt tydligt är rollindelningen där pojkar är överrepresenterade i alla tidningar som studerats. Flickorna är varken lika många eller fler representerade i någon tidning.

    Minst lika bra som den bäste mannen: En intervjustudie om att vara kvinna i en mansdominerad filmbransch2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Filmbranschen är på många sätt en mansdominerad bransch. Hade könsfördelningen inte varit så sned är det rimligt att anta att filmutbudet hade haft en större mångfald. Detta gäller förstås även för andra kategorier som klass, etnicitet och sexualitet. Syftet med denna uppsats är att ta reda på hur kvinnor med ledande kreativa eller administrativa positioner i filmbranschen har tagit sig dit de är idag, och vad de har upplevt på vägen dit. Vi har valt att applicera ett feministiskt perspektiv på vår studie, kompletterat med teorier om intersektionalitet. Vår frågeställning lyder:

    1) Är det möjligt att utläsa vilka faktorer som verkar ha spelat in i hur deras yrkesliv har utvecklat sig (bakgrund, utbildning, familj etc.)?

    2) Vilken betydelse ger de kön (att vara kvinna) i deras bransch, och hur har denna förståelse skapats?

    3) Vad ger kvinnornas berättelser för bild av möjligheterna till ett mer jämställt arbetsliv inom film?

    En-Gendering the Sublime: Aesthetics and Politics in the Eighteenth Century2014In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 20-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I expand on the analysis of the en-gendered sublime, an aesthetic concept of political consequence used in the eighteenth century. In a discussion of the initial phase of modern aesthetics I will present Immanuel Kants opinions on the sublimes ennobling effect as having solely male connotations. This, I argue, became an important part of the construction of a new notion of citizenship on the basis of nationality and as an exclusively male domain. Furthermore, I will claim that conceptions of the bad sublime, as expressed by thinkers such as Edmund Burke, made up another side of this ennobling sublimity coin, which was the politically provocative defined in female terms. Aesthetics has obviously walked hand-in-hand with politics ever since Platos Republic, and the concept of the sublime only make up a small part of this complex union-but undeniably a rather interesting one.

    Kvinnorörelsen: Samspelet mellan kön och klass i 70-talets kvinnorörelse och Feministiskt initiativ2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Gunilla Thorgren beskriver i sin bok Grupp 8 & jag hur det var att komma in i Grupp 8, en akademiskt präglad miljö, som för henne framstod som en främmande värld till att börja med.1 Jag läste boken och började fundera över det faktum att det var akademiker som arbetade för en förbättring av arbetarklasskvinnornas tillvaro. Jag ville veta hur det kom sig att det var på det sättet. Vilken inställning hade 70-talets kvinnorörelse till arbetarklassens kvinnor och var arbetarkvinnorna själva överhuvudtaget aktiva i sammanhanget? Det kan också vara intressant att undersöka hur klassperspektivet ser ut i dagens kvinnorörelse med Feministiskt initiativ som en relativt ny organisation i det svenska samhället. Jag bestämde mig för att söka svaren hos medlemmarna själva för att få veta vilka likheterna och skillnaderna är i fråga om klass hos 70-talets kvinnorörelse och Feministiskt initiativ.

    Jag tror att en viktig anledning till att jag blev nyfiken på detta är min egen klasstillhörighet. Jag växte upp i en arbetarfamilj och har själv arbetat med monteringsarbeten inom industrin. Det enda som kan sägas ha anknytning till ett medelklassliv för min del är mina universitetsstudier. De utgör dock en begränsad del av mitt liv och har inte påverkat min uppfattning om var jag känner mig hemma. Under arbetet med den här uppsatsen har det blivit tydligt för mig att klass spelar roll i kampen för kvinnofrigörelse, dels genom den litteratur jag har läst, men även p.g.a. att jag mer än en gång har frågat mig själv om jag får lov att kalla mig feminist då jag upptäckt att när klassintressen och feministiska intressen kolliderar väljer jag inte alltid att sätta feminismen i första rummet. Den här uppsatsen ger en inblick i hur kön och klass samspelar i kvinnorörelsens feministiska arbete.

    I uppsatsens inledningskapitel tar jag upp syfte och frågeställningar, presenterar mitt material och mina informanter och ger en bild av den tidigare forskningen på området. Inledningskapitlet innehåller också en metoddiskussion samt en beskrivning av begreppet intersektionalitet. Därefter följer ett bakgrundskapitel där 70-talets kvinnorörelse och Feministiskt initiativ presenteras. Det tredje kapitlet utgörs av informanternas utsagor samt en analys av dessa. Uppsatsen avslutas med ett kapitel där jag sammanfattar mina slutsatser och för en avslutande diskussion.

    A gender perspective as trigger and facilitator of innovation2014In: International Journal of Gender and Entrepreneurship, ISSN 1756-6266, E-ISSN 1756-6274, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 163-180Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore whether a gender perspective contributes to or functions as a driving force for innovations in organizations. The following questions are addressed: how can a gender perspective generate innovations and what are the conditions that favour innovations driven by a gender perspective?

    Design/methodology/approach – This study builds on a qualitative case study of an upper secondary school in Sweden, which has been showcased as a good example of gender awareness and gender mainstreaming in schools. Semi-structured interviews with representatives of the school were conducted and documents were analysed.

    Findings – The gender perspective contributed to innovations by triggering them and supporting the innovative processes, ensuring that the innovations did not stop at essentialist solutions. New ways of performing core processes were developed with the innovative leverage of the gender perspective. The perspective must be actively used and integrated into the core processes if it is to work properly, which was the case in this school.

    Research limitations/implications – This study indicates the importance of conducting further studies on innovations in the public sector as well as acknowledging gender in innovation studies, not least because this study focuses on a local case in a specific national context.

    Practical implications – This school exemplifies the use of a gender perspective as a driving force for innovations in organizations. The case points to important organizational conditions for innovation and actual gender-aware innovations.

    Originality/value – The study expands the understanding of innovation(s) in organizations and elaborates on the gendered dimensions of innovation as both process and product.

    Pain research is still dominated by biomedical perspectives and the need to articulate pain in ways other than those offered by evidence based medical models is pressing. Examining closely subjective experiences of pain, this book explores the way in which pain is situated, communicated and formed in a larger cultural and social context.

    Dimensions of Pain

    explores the lived experience of pain, and questions of identity and pain, from a range of different disciplinary perspectives within the humanities and social sciences. Discussing the acuity and temporality of pain, its isolating impact, the embodied expression of pain, pain and sexuality, gender and ethnicity, it also includes a cluster of three chapters discusses the phenomenon and experience of labour pains.

    This volume revitalizes the study of pain, offering productive ways of carefully thinking through its different aspects and exploring the positive and enriching side of world-forming pain as well as its limiting aspects. It will be of interest to academics and students interested in pain from a range of backgrounds, including philosophy, sociology, nursing, midwifery, medicine and gender studies.
