    Behind the youtful facade: The Church of Sweden Abroad and its older visitiors and volunteers2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Church has local parishes in around 45 places abroad. Their mission is to provide community and support for Swedes who stay in foreign countries permanently, or for long or short periods. This presentation will present and discuss results from a research project exploring the Church of Sweden Abroad, with particular focus on migration, ageing and the last phases of life. The project consisted of a qualitative case study, a mapping of the websites of all 45 parishes abroad, and an internet-based survey of all parishes. The case study and the survey highlight the important role that older Swedes play in the parishes abroad. However, while people above the age of 65 in practice seem to “carry” many of the parishes̕ activities – and  also seem to be “carried” by the parishes in terms of receiving support – this age category is virtually invisible in the photographs and texts on the websites. This paradox will be discussed in relation to the phenomenon of ageism and by looking at the marketing of the Church of Sweden Abroad as an expression of the  youth-obsessed culture that is today so prominent in many contexts all over the world.

    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the role of the Church of Sweden Abroad, with its 45 parishes in foreign countries, for older Swedes who live or stay abroad, permanently or for long or short periods. The article is based on a research project comprising three studies: a qualitative study, an analysis of websites and information material, and an Internet-based survey. The results highlight the important role played by the parishes for older visitors, in terms of providing community, support, and religious services. However, people above the age of 65 were virtually invisible on the church websites and in other information material. This paradox is discussed and the concept of ageism is used in the analysis.

    Bodily changes among people living with physical impairments and chronic illnesses: biographical disruption or normal illness?2012In: Sociology of Health and Illness, ISSN 0141-9889, E-ISSN 1467-9566, Vol. 34, no 8, p. 1156-1169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on individuals who are growing old with chronic illnesses and early onset impairments. Their experience of illness complications, bodily and functional losses is similar to what Bury has referred to as a biographical disruption. However, whereas Bury argues that a chronic illness amounts to a critical situation for the individual, partly due to its unexpected nature, this does not apply to the participants in our two studies. A second difference concerns Bury’s implicit suggestion that the disruption is a single event that is characteristic of the early stage of a chronic illness. Repeated disruptions seemed to shape the lives of several of those interviewed. At the same time, this article challenges studies which suggest that the notion of disruption is less relevant to people in later life and to those who have experienced difficult lives, and also questions the argument that continuity rather than change characterises the lives of people who have had chronic conditions since their early years. In its approach, the article responds toWilliams’ request for studies in the sociology of chronic illness that extend the predominant biographical focus on the middle years of life to both ends of the life course.

    Ageism and The Rights ofOlder People2018In: Contemporary Perspectives on Ageism / [ed] Liat Ayalon & Clemens Tesch-Roemer, Springer, 2018, p. 369-382Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter critically examines established attempts to counter ageism, highlighting how they have failed to include the so-called fourth age, and might instead contribute to further stigmatization of older people with impairments and care needs. Drawing upon models from disability policies, an equal rights framework will be introduced that could be used to combat discrimination and improve everyday conditions of older people in need of long-term care. In this chapter, the equal rights framework will call into question existing cases of “institutional ageism” whereby older people with impairments are excluded from government programs benefiting younger people with disabilities. Instead of acting as a normative reference group, as the standard that older persons may fail or manage to live up to, it is possible to use the third age as a comparative reference group. We argue that society should make available for older persons with impairments living conditions and lifestyles that are typical for healthy active seniors, that is, for the group of older people that are commonly referred to as constituting the third age. These conditions and activities should then not be regarded as normative, but as typical, and thus possible to refer to when defining social rights.

    Older couples with long-term disabilities: Multiple jeopardy or successful ageing?Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In a study where older couples who had lived long lives with physical disabilities were interviewed about mutual care, an unexpected finding that while the couples reported worsening disabilities, they also described themselves as advantaged, and as maintaining a high level of activity in some areas of life. In this article, we investigate how the couples achieve this sense of ageing successfully when the participants’ stories of physical decline, from an outsider’s perspective, might be thought to produce double-, triple- or multiple jeopardy. The results show how the couples use different types of reference groups and refer to various resources to frame themselves as privileged. Furthermore, through environmental adaptations, technical aids and supportive services, they managed to maintain a high level of activity, despite living with disabilities. Notably, the couples described themselves as advantaged by referring to being older, to the long life with disabilities and to ageing with disabilities together. The overarching ambition of the article is to problematize established notions of successful ageing. Considering that the couples referred to the very conditions that might be seen as disadvantageous,  the problem of pre-defined criteria for successful ageing becomes particularly apparent.

    Media Representation of Life Stages: Analysis of Photographs Posted on Norrköping Municipal Facebook Accounts2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: It has been found by researchers that older adults are statistically underrepresented and associated with negative stereotypes in the mass media. Older adults are generally viewed as incompetent from stereotyped media content, which may make them socially excluded from a set of opportunities and resources. The media portrayals are conceived as value-expressive and constructing the image of older adults and ageing. The purpose of this study is to investigate how Norrköping municipality portrays citizens at different life stages in social media with a special emphasis on the use of age stereotypes in the photos used.

    Method: The material consists of the photos collected from 32 Facebook accounts produced by municipal bodies during the entire year of 2018. The analysis is based on a categorization of various features of the photos in order to statistically describe the relation between signs, activities and contexts associated with distinct life stages. Further, the meaning of frequently-used symbols in the photographs is analysed.

    Result: The study concludes that old age persons are numerically underrepresented in the material. A number of signs and activities in the photographs, and contexts beyond the photographs, that stereotypically corresponded to five distinct life stages (infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age) are identified. Old age is repetitively portrayed in the context of coffee drinking and foot bathing on Norrköping municipality’s Facebook page, while adolescence is depicted with practical training at high schools to an excessive degree. Besides, the result suggests that certain minorities of citizens did not show up in the municipal social media: people with disabilities, migrants, people with dementia and on forth.

    Conclusion: The municipality communicates stereotypical images of life stages through associating with specific contexts in the photographic coverage. Therefore, communication professionals need to be aware of the stereotypical construction of life stages in the media.
