    Internet Inquiry: Conversations About Method Annette N. Markham & Nancy K. Baym (Eds.).2010In: Forum qualitative Sozialforschung, E-ISSN 1438-5627, Vol. 11, no 3Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As suggested by the title, this edited collection of articles is aimed at creating a dialogue on crosscutting epistemological and methodological issues relating to qualitative internet study. The scope of the book is not to provide quick tips, but rather encourage the reader to seek new methods of conducting online research. The book is creatively structured into six parts, each one addressing a key question on methods. In addition to the two editors' contributions, 13 accomplished scholars from various disciplines intelligibly respond and share their own qualitative research experiences in online environments, providing a precise and valuable contribution to current debates in internet studies.

    Abstract [et]

    Ihakeha ja lihakeha» näol on tegu hästivarustatud raamatupoodidest ilma retseptita saadava vahendiga, mis aitab ravida meie ühiskonnas levinud, kuid teadvustamata lühinägelikkuse vormi, nimelt kehalist lühinägelikkust. Pärast tarvitamist suudab inimene paremini tajuda oma keha ja selle vajadusi ning tunda ära seda mõjutavat välist ja sisemist survet. Lihalikule kehale tekib ühiskondlik mõõde, keha varjatud poliitilised tähendused muutuvad nähtavateks. Piisavas koguses manustamisel tõrjub inimese keha loomulikkust ohustavaid väliseid rünnakuid. Aitab võidelda valehäbi ja topeltmoraali ilmingutega. Õigeaegne tarvitamine hoiab ära keemilise ja kirurgilise sekkumise vajaduse, mis omakorda viib väljaminekute märkimisväärse kokkuhoiuni. Tulemuseks on vabam ja eneseteadlikum inimene. Sobiv igas vanuses, nii meestele kui ka naistele, rikastele ja vaestele. Teadaolevad vastunäidustused puuduvad.

    The 'Rotten Report' and the Reproduction of Masculnity, Nation and Security in Turkey2012In: Making Gender, Making War: Violence, Military and Peacekeeping Practices / [ed] Annica Kronsell and Erika Svedberg, New York and London: Routledge, 2012, 1, p. 76-89Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Making Gender, Making War is a unique interdisciplinary edited collection which explores the social construction of gender, war-making and peacekeeping. It highlights the institutions and processes involved in the making of gender in terms of both men and women, masculinity and femininity. The "war question for feminism" marks a thematic red thread throughout; it is a call to students and scholars of feminism to take seriously and engage with the task of analyzing war. Contributors analyze how war-making is intertwined with the making of gender in a diversity of empirical case studies, organized around four themes: gender, violence and militarism; how the making of gender is connected to a (re)making of the nation through military practices; UN SCR 1325 and gender mainstreaming in institutional practices; and gender subjectivities in the organization of violence, exploring the notion of violent women and non-violent men. -- Book Description.

    Det kommunikativa handlandet.: Kulturella perspektiv på medier och konsumtion2000Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att handla eller shoppa är inte bara att betala pengar i utväxling mot en vara, utan också en form av kommunikation. Människor köper och använder varor i samspel med varandra och för att skapa kommunikation.Hela samhället och vardagslivet genomsyras alltmer av medier, och därför är konsumtionen av varor alltmer en konsumtion av medier. Dessutom bärs själva den kommersiella kulturen upp av olika mediebudskap och andra medel för kommunikation - såväl i postorder och internethandel, som i varje modernt köpcentrum med sina telefoner, reklam och TV-monitorer.

    Denna bok väver samman teorier om konsumtion och medieanvändning. Utgångspunkten är kulturanalytisk: här koncentreras intresset till hur mening skapas i det kommunikativa handlandet, något som bryter ny mark för konsumtionsforskningen, som annars oftast varit strikt ekonomisk och försummat mediernas roll. Den förnyar även medieforskningen genom att vidga mediebegreppet och sätta in människors mediebruk i ett större konsumtionssammanhang.Det kommunikativa handlandet : kulturella perspektiv på medier och konsumtion

    We are here, but are we queer?: A bricolage of the experiences of LGBTQ refugees in Linköping, Sweden2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the field of queer asylum studies has slowly been expanding in different contexts across the world, with numerous methodologies and various topics of focus. In Sweden, the academic work in this area has mainly focused on legal perspectives. Providing a different perspective, this thesis examines the situation and experiences of LGBTQ asylum seekers and refugees in Linköping, Sweden through a community-based collage project. It examines how collages can be used as a method for research and a tool for community building within this context, and explores the experiences of LGBTQ asylum seekers and refugees in Linköping, Sweden, using individual and group collages.

    Using the concept of bricolage, the thesis ties together various artworks with short narratives and analytical interpretations. Together, they form a fragmented, in itself collage-like insight into this community. Through these fragments, the thesis reflects on the themes of migration, belonging, survival, and identity. Additionally, it explores questions of home, family, refugeeness, mess, homonormativity and representation. I argue that commonly used narratives of migration often do not fit this group, as they face highly complex forms of oppression based on their intersecting identities.

    Furthermore, the thesis examines the use of collage as a method by looking into the ways collage can negotiate methodological issues like accessibility and researcher accountability, how it can function as a tool for community building, and how it can be used to allow a community researcher to negotiate their positionality in an easier way. I argue that the use of collage has many benefits and that the use of the collage method in this thesis has enriched the research.

    Queer Work: Productivity, reproduction and change2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Work in general is under-theorised as a site of oppression in queer and intersectional studies, despite the power imbalances it manifests and its far-reaching effects on everyday lives. Anti-work theory is a useful conceptual tool for examining work critically. The purpose of this study is therefore to form a bridge between queer and anti-work politics and theory. Using a broad conception of work drawing on the Marxist and feminist concepts of social reproduction and emotional labour, this study explores anti-work politics situated in relation to the author (who is queer), in contrast to previous accounts which focus on a heteronormative division of labour. The text lays down a theoretical background bringing together elements of queer, anti-work and intersectional theory. With the lack of previous work on the topic, the study instead incorporates previous empirical research on queer work and delves into their problems, before returning to theoretical texts on the relation between queer and capitalism, and the politics of anti-work. This study is centred around the reports of nine queers in Berlin, Germany. It uses the ethnographic methods of semi-structured interviews and thematic analysis to gain intersectional insights into the links people make between queerness and the drive to work, resisting work, and the future.

    Abstract [en]

    Management and managing are characteristically gendered in many respects. Over the last 30 years there has been a major international growth of studies on gender relations in organizations in general and in management in particular. This applies in both empirical research and more general theoretical analyses. The area of gender, organizations and management is now recognized in at least some quarters outside of itself as a legitimate, even an important, area. This is to be seen in the current market in publications, in the activities of mainstream international publishers, in journals, in courses within degree programmes, and in research groups, networks, and conferences and conference streams. Nevertheless, the field of activity is still somewhat precarious, in some ways very precarious. The vast majority of mainstream work on organizations and management has no gender analysis whatsoever or if it has it is very simple and crude. In business schools and university departments the position of gender-explicit work is very far from established. Even critical management studies, which may be concerned with, for example, power, class, labour process, resistance, discourse, deconstruction, does not necessarily take gender into account.

    Gender and Management: New Research Directions2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article selectively reviews gender and management research. A flavour of what it can be like to research in this area is offered alongside a more substantive account. The article maps the many strands of work potentially relevant to exploring gender and management. It covers aspects of the field such as its diversity, emerging development, potential marginality and increasing clarity of definition, and considers implications for researchers. The appropriate integration of gender awareness into mainstream theorizing, alongside its separate development, is advocated. Major themes and issues in gender and management research are summarized and briefly addressed. Dilemmas about seeking to promote change but needing to speak within current conventions of management and academia are noted

    Abuse in health care organizations is a pressing issue for caregivers. Forum play, a participatory theater model, has been used among health care staff to learn about and work against abuse. This small-scale qualitative study aims to explore how forum play participants experience the potentials and limitations of forum play as an educational model for continued professional learning at a hospital clinic.

    METHODS:

    Fifteen of 41 members of staff of a Swedish nephrology clinic, primarily nurses, voluntarily participated in either one or two forum play workshops, where they shared experiences and together practiced working against abuse in everyday health care situations. Interviews were conducted after the workshops with 14 of the participants, where they were asked to reflect on their own and others' participation or nonparticipation, and changes in their individual and collective understanding of abuse in health care.

    RESULTS:

    Before the workshops, the informants were either hesitant or very enthusiastic toward the drama-oriented form of learning. Afterward, they all agreed that forum play was a very effective way of individual as well as collective learning about abuse in health care. However, they saw little effect on their work at the clinic, primarily understood as a consequence of the fact that many of their colleagues did not take part in the workshops.

    DISCUSSION:

    This study, based on the analysis of forum play efforts at a single hospital clinic, suggests that forum play can be an innovative educational model that creates a space for reflection and learning in health care practices. It might be especially fruitful when a sensitive topic, such as abuse in health care, is the target of change. However, for the effects to reach beyond individual insights and a shared understanding among a small group of participants, strategies to include all members of staff need to be explored.

    Understanding and preventing situations of abuse in health care: Navigation work in a Swedish palliative care setting2019In: Social Science and Medicine, ISSN 0277-9536, E-ISSN 1873-5347, Vol. 222, p. 52-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In their everyday work, health professionals find themselves in situations that they perceive to be abusive to patients. Such situations can trigger feelings of shame and guilt, making efforts to address the problem among colleagues a challenge. This article analyzes how health professionals conceptualize abusive situations, and how they develop collective learning and explore preventive strategies. It is based on an interactive research collaboration with a hospice and palliative care clinic in Sweden during 2016–2017. The empirical material consists of group discussions and participant observations collected during interactive drama workshops for all clinic staff. Based on three types of challenges in the material, identified through thematic analysis, we establish the concept of navigation work to show how health professionals prevent or find ways out of challenging and potentially abusive situations. First, the navigation of care landscapes shows how staff navigate the different territories of the home and the ward, reflecting how spatial settings construct the scope of care and what professionals consider to be potentially abusive situations. Second, the negotiation of collective navigations addresses the professionals' shared efforts to protect patients through the use of physical and relational boundaries, or mediating disrupted relationships. Third, the navigation of tensions in care highlights professionals’ strategies in the confined action space between coercing and neglecting patients who oppose necessary care procedures. Theoretically, the concept of navigation work draws upon work on care in practice, and sheds light on the particular kind of work care professionals do, and reflect on doing, in order to navigate the challenges of potentially abusive situations. By providing a perspective and shared vocabulary, the concept may also elicit ways in which this work can be verbalized, shared, and developed in clinical practice.

    Gatekeepers and Godfathers: An intersectional analysis of the impact of personal social networks on snowboarding progression2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to discover what impact, if any, personal social networks have on an individual’s snowboarding skill progression, and whether any differences emerge based on gender, class, race, or age. Interviews with 10 demographically diverse snowboarders in Washington State, USA, were conducted and analyzed. The study revealed that personal social networks are highly important to snowboarding skill progression, with nine progression benefits noted. It was also found that the type of relationship was important, with the roles of gatekeepers, “godfathers,” and crews as the most critical for progression. Lastly, respondents indicated a variety of methods to access social networks, including social media, events, organizations, industry employment and through existing social networks. To further analyze the findings, an intersectional feminist reading of Castells networking theory was applied, with investigations into gender, race, class, and age patterns. The analysis revealed two overlapping values systems, one based on snowboarding ability and commitment, and one based on alignment of demographics with those who are most valued in the snowboarding world--mainly young, white, middle class men. The research closes with potential solution ideas to improve equitability and inclusion, which can be applied from the grassroots level to large-scale implementation.

    Abstract [en]

    The Neuroschool, and in particular the Experiment contest with which the week culminated, was a transformative experience for the 2010 Alumni. The participants were determined to continue reflecting on the ways in which this experience had affected their perspectives on research and so, scattered across the globe, each Experiment team organised a Skype meeting to discuss a list of questions derived in collaboration with Dr Giovanni Frazzetto. Their aim was to produce group dialogues that would help participants clarify what they had learned about transdisciplinarity, and which would also communicate to others the experience of taking part in The Experiment. Further, the group production of this report was itself a way in which to continue addressing the challenges of transdisciplinary collaboration.

    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).

    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.

    Abstract [sv]

    Offentliga organisationer har en skyldighet att arbeta för jämställdhet både i sin verksamhet och för att påverka samhället i stort. Men vad är fruktbara strategier för ett hållbart utvecklingsarbete - hur går man till väga?I centrum för denna bok står olika dilemman i jämställdhetsarbetet. Det gäller både hur ett jämställdhetsarbete kan organiseras och vad det kan innehålla, exempelvis vilken roll utbildningar kan spela för utvecklingen och olika sätt att hantera motstånd. Boken är baserad på ett omfattande arbete med jämställdhetsintegrering i offentlig sektor - inom bland annat skola, socialtjänst, räddningstjänst samt hälso- och sjukvård.Jämställdhet i verksamhetsutveckling kan användas som kurslitteratur inom högskoleutbildningar i t.ex. genusvetenskap, statsvetenskap, företagsekonomi och sociologi samt som fördjupningslitteratur i anslutning till ledarskaps- och personal-utbildningar. Den vänder sig också till praktiskt verksamma med intresse för förändringsprocesser i organisationer, verksamhetsutveckling, utvärdering och jämställdhet.Boken finns även översatt till engelska, Gender Mainstreaming in Public Sector Organisations

    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]

    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.

    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.

    Utbildning för en jämställd verksamhet2011In: Jämställdhet i verksamhetsutveckling / [ed] Kristina Lindholm, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2011, 1:1, p. 145-164Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Offentliga organisationer har en skyldighet att arbeta för jämställdhet både i sin verksamhet och för att påverka samhället i stort. Men vad är fruktbara strategier för ett hållbart utvecklingsarbete - hur går man till väga?I centrum för denna bok står olika dilemman i jämställdhetsarbetet. Det gäller både hur ett jämställdhetsarbete kan organiseras och vad det kan innehålla, exempelvis vilken roll utbildningar kan spela för utvecklingen och olika sätt att hantera motstånd. Boken är baserad på ett omfattande arbete med jämställdhetsintegrering i offentlig sektor - inom bland annat skola, socialtjänst, räddningstjänst samt hälso- och sjukvård.Jämställdhet i verksamhetsutveckling kan användas som kurslitteratur inom högskoleutbildningar i t.ex. genusvetenskap, statsvetenskap, företagsekonomi och sociologi samt som fördjupningslitteratur i anslutning till ledarskaps- och personal-utbildningar. Den vänder sig också till praktiskt verksamma med intresse för förändringsprocesser i organisationer, verksamhetsutveckling, utvärdering och jämställdhet.Boken finns även översatt till engelska, Gender Mainstreaming in Public Sector Organisat

    Det motsägelsefulla arbetet med jämställdhetsintegrering2011In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 2-3, p. 81-96Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Effects from gender mainstreaming2013In: Capturing effects: of projects and programmes / [ed] Lennart Svensson, Göran Brulin, Sven Jansson and Karin Sjöberg, Lund: Studentlitteratur, 2013, 1, p. 199-219Chapter in book (Other academic)
    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.

    "För han kanske inte är mottaglig för det bemötandet som jag är villig att ge och då dör det": en intersektionell studie om möten och bemötanden på en fritidsgård2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.
