    Why we need feminist posthumanities for a more-than-human world2019In: Transformative Humanities KTH Blog,, Vol. 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, the environment is in us, and we humans are fully in the environment. That much is clear in this new planetary era of uncertainty some call the Anthropocene. Postdisciplinary practices and situated knowledges (Haraway again!) are of course especially salient in this regard: a brute necessity. The planet knows no disciplinary borders, it does not separate between nature and culture. Our planetary issues can not be solved by demarcations where sciences do nature and humanities do culture. In truth, our Anthropocene predicament belies the whole classical distinction between nature and culture! The needed efficacy of such postdisciplinary work is evidenced in many new, old and déja vu fields like feminist science studies and networked new materialisms, in bio-art and eco-art, in somatechnics, new media studies, post-continental philosophy, in anthropocene studies or transcorporeal theory, in multispecies- and medical humanities, in transgender studies, xenofeminism, cyborg- or techno-humanities, ecological or environmental humanities, queer death studies, critical veganism, and a mounting range of posthumanisms, inhumanisms and ahumanisms. Yes, critical and creative scholars in and around the humanities have not been lazy in the face of the many issues that face us today. Feminist posthumanities cover or converse with such postdisciplinary practices. It labels a wide-spread, multi-sited, evolving and growing effort to rework the role of the humanities and their relation to science, technology, art and contemporary society on the basis that our idea of the human is fundamentally reaching its limits, and changing. Feminist posthumanities thus responds to the need for more-than-human humanities.

    Fathoming chemical weapons in the Gotland Deep2017In: Cultural Geographies, ISSN 1474-4740, E-ISSN 1477-0881, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 631-638Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the end of World War II, tens of thousands of tons of chemical warfare agents - mostly mustard gas - were dumped in the Gotland Deep - a deep basin in the middle of the otherwise shallow Baltic Sea. Decades later, these weapons are being reactivated - both literally (perhaps on the faces of dead seals, and in fishermens nets) and also in our imaginations. In this story that recounts the beginning of our research into this situation, militarization meets with environmental concern: the past floats into the present, where humans and non-humans are equally implicated, where the sea itself conditions the kinds of questions we can ask, and answers we might get, and where terms like threat and risk remain undecided. After spending time on Gotland Island - the closest terrestrial site to these weapons dumps - we ask what kinds of research methods might be adequate to these tangled, underwater tales that we find so difficult to fathom.

    Prescribing Relational Subjectivities2017In: Gendering drugs: Feminist Studies of Pharmaceuticals / [ed] Ericka Johnson, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, p. 87-105Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The project that triggered this book was named “Prescriptive Prescriptions. Pharmaceuticals and ‘Healthy’ Subjectivities.” As discussed in Chap.  1, Introduction, our initial task was to map out and explore how pharmaceuticals were prescribing healthy subject positions for the individuals targeted by them. But pharmaceuticals do much more than prescribe healthy personhood. They also prescribe healthy social relationships whose very existence and enactment can be imagined as requiring the consumption of a prescription medication. The two chapters in this part detail how this is done discursively by focusing on commercial images and texts used to market and sell Alzheimer’s, prostate and human papillomavirus pharmaceuticals.

    Enrolling men, their doctors and partners: Individual and collective responses to erectile dyspunction2016In: Glocal Pharma: International brands and the Imagination of Local masculinity / [ed] Ericka Johnson, Ebba Sjögren, Cecilia Åsberg, London, New York: Routledge, 2016, 1, p. 75-87Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter examines how men, their doctors and their partners are enrolled by the Pfizer-sponsored website for potential Swedish Viagra customers. We read this enrolment as an example of how new techno-social identities are created by a drug, in this case, Viagra. The Swedish-language site www.potenslinjen.se2 (in English, ‘potency hotline’) is framed as a source of information for laypeople concerned about erectile dysfunction.3 We have examined how the site’s text and imagery address different audiences in the construction of the Swedish Viagra man. Our analysis builds on existing literature about the promotion of Viagra which addresses the construction of erectile dysfunction (ED) and masculinity in other national contexts, and we therefore make mention of alternative images and readings in other contexts throughout our analysis. Like previous critical studies of Viagra (Fishman and Mamo 2001; Marshall 2006; Tiefer 2006; Vares and Braun 2006), we are examining the construction of an ideal user of Viagra, but we also discuss the way the enrolment of doctors and partners serves to position ED in the man and define its treatment as a solitary act of taking a pill while simultaneously involving the other actors to help the medicine function.

    Glocal Pharma: International brands and the imagination of local masculinity2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An exploration of how global pharmaceutical products are localized - of what happens when they become ’glocal’ - this book examines the tensions that exist between a global pharmaceutical market and the locally bounded discourses and regulations encountered as markets are created for new drugs in particular contexts. Employing the case study of the emergence, representation and regulation of Viagra in the Swedish market, Glocal Pharma offers analyses of commercial material, medical discourses and legal documents to show how a Swedish, Viagra-consuming subject has been constructed in relation to the drug and how Viagra is imagined in relation to the Swedish man.

    Engaging with debates about pharmaceuticalization, the authors consider the ways in which new identities are created around drugs, the redefinition of health problems as sits of pharmaceutical treatment and changes in practices of governance to reflect the entrance of pharmaceuticals to the market. With attention to ’local’ contexts, it reveals elements in the nexus of pharmaceutcalization that are receptive to cultural elements as new products become embedded in local markets.

    An empirically informed study of the ways in which the presence of a drug can alter the concept of a disease and its treatment, understandings of who suffers from it and how to cure it - both locally and internationally - this book will appeal to scholars of sociology and science and technology studies with interests in globalization, pharmaceuticals, gender and the sociology of medicine.

    Viagra Selfhood: Pharmaceutical advertising and the visual formations of Swedish masculinity2016In: Glocal Pharma: International Brands and the Imagination of Local Masculinity / [ed] Ericka Johnson, Ebba Sjögren, Cecilia Åsberg, New York: Routledge, 2016, 1, p. 88-98Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we will investigate the visual confguration of what we term a  Swedish Viagra imaginary, a cultural phantasy landscape that produces and repro- duces certain subject positions of great interest for feminists and other scholars invested in social change. More precisely, we interrogate a set of key images pre- sented by the Pfzer-sponsored website for potential Swedish Viagra customers with erectile dysfunction in order to explore how this particular Viagra imaginary provides reference points for shared and collective identities. We explore here the  visual formation, and the naturalization, of the nationally shaped masculinity of the potential consumers of Viagra at a Swedish-language site, www.potenslinjen.se/,  the same site discussed in Chapter 6. This site is produced by the pharmaceutical 2 company Pfzer for the explicit purpose of providing the Swedish public with health  information on erectile problems.

    Anthropocene Ecologies: Biogeotechnical Relationalities in Late Capitalism2015In: New Materialism Cost Action 1307Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This position paper outlines a multidirectional approach to what we call Anthropocene ecologies, its diverse genealogies, and methodological and conceptual foci. Under the heading of Anthropocene ecologies we seek to fertilize the sciences of ecology with approaches of queer and feminist new materialisms, and engage in multiple collaborations across the humanities, sciences, and everyday ecological practices. Specifically we draw on ecology as the object of analysis and the methodology, building on concepts and approaches from the sciences, material feminisms, science and technology studies, human/animal studies and material ecocriticism. Five modes of attention become particularly salient for our analysis of the Anthropocene ecologies of solar energy, humananimal relations, organic food production, wetlands, and human-robot relations. First we attend to how these ecologies are generated within and affect the webs of multispecies ecologies in late capitalism. Second we suggest the concept of biogeotechno-power to capture the entanglements of the biological, the geologic and the technological in new formations of power that invest, regulate, enhance, and dispose of (more-than-)human bodies in particular ecological relationalities. Third we examine the multiplicities of ecological temporalities, including the deep time of mineralisation, fossilisation and past and future species survival. Fourth we attend to affect as an entangling force in ecological relations. And fifth we investigate an affirmative posthuman ethics of concern and response-ability in relations with living and nonliving materialities that might not be close by (spatially and/or temporally). Anthropocene ecologies thereby include the technical, informational, temporal, affective, and ethical as integral parts of ecological intra-actions, and remain attuned to the differential, paradoxical and unexpected.

    Four Problems, Four Directions For Environmental Humanities: Toward A Critical Posthumanities For the Anthropocene2015In: Ethics and the Environment, ISSN 1085-6633, E-ISSN 1535-5306, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 67-97Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Taking into account intersecting trends in political, academic, and popular engagements with environmental issues, this paper concerns the development of environmental humanities as an academic field of inquiry, specifically in this new era many are calling the Anthropocene. After a brief outline of the environmental humanities as a field, we delimit four problems that currently frame our relation to the environment, namely: alienation and intangibility; the post-political situation; negative framing of environmental change; and compartmentalization of “the environment” from other spheres of concern. Addressing these problems, we argue, is not possible without environmental humanities. Given that this field is not entirely new, our second objective is to propose specific shifts in the environmental humanities that could address the aforementioned problems. These include attention to environmental imaginaries; rethinking the “green” field; enhanced transdisciplinarity and postdisciplinarity; and increasing “citizen humanities” efforts.

    Post-humanist Imaginaries2015In: Research handbook on climate governance / [ed] Karin Bäckstrand and Eva Lövbrand, Northampton: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2015, 1, p. 480-490Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter proposes that climate imaginaries are a vital part of governance. In the particular context of the Anthropocene, there is a need to consider the kinds of orientations that an Anthropocene climate imaginary evokes, while also seeking out "alter-Anthropocene" imaginaries -- visions and practices that we might cultivate as engines of possibility for climate governance and beyond. To explore such alternatives, we use illustrations taken from climate art, supported by cultural theory emerging from critical feminist posthumanities. While feminist posthumanism is not typically connected to work on climate governance, we aver that its attention to the power of imaginaries to shape actions, as well as its focus on creative responses to worldly problems that are “more-than-human” in nature, present an important opportunity to address difficult-to-measure dimensions of climate governance: namely, the ability to reimagine ways of getting on in a world where humans are not the only bodies that matter, and where both humans and non-human bodies (including other species, elements, and geophysical forces) are entangled in the exigencies of climate change.

    Speculative before the turn: Reintroducing feminist materialist performativity2015In: Cultural Studies Review, ISSN 1446-8123, E-ISSN 1837-8692, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 147-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Before the trains of thought have been firmly laid down, we ask in this article about the very nature and histories of the speculative of the speculative-materialist turn. We do this from the intertwined interfaces of curious feminist materialisms, foregrounding sexual difference, post-positivist critique and posthumanist performativity such as is being done in various strands of feminist theory today (new materialist feminism, new feminist science studies, feminist posthumanities etc.). The question of speculation plays a constitutive role in feminist critique and in several new or neo-materialist traditions. In fact, many interesting materialisms—Marxism, French feminism—can be named ‘speculative’. We argue that in spite of what the recent ‘speculative turn’ professes, speculative materialisms have a complex genealogy. Speculation functions transversally in a materialist genealogy (dis)-connecting the archive of feminist approaches in particular. In order to be able to imagine a different (feminist) world we need to think through a stifled and sexually differentiated present from which a qualitative shift and political breakthrough can be formulated, and hopefully achieved. However, in what is currently called ‘speculative realism’ or ‘object-oriented ontologies’ neither speculation nor the speculative are reflected upon as a heritage from and alliance with feminist and politically materialist positions. What are the onto-epistemological stakes of this body of work? And what ethico-political horizons are drawn here? We stand speculative before such turn.

    Abstract [en]

    In the land of feminist scholars no wo/man is a scholastic island, entire unto herself. We would like to start with the above paraphrase. We devote this editorial piece to an important theme in contemporary feminist ethics: how we as feminist scholars can be accountable for how we are (always already) becoming with others in various scholarly and political constellations. More precisely, we would briefly like to zoomin on the matter of how we work together in the power-saturated academic settings inorder to create purposeful social change of a feminist kind.

    Enrolling Men, their Doctors, and Partners: Individual and Collective Responses to Erectile Dysfunction2012In: Science & Technology Studies, ISSN 2243-4690, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 46-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using the Pfizer funded Swedish informational site about erectile dysfunction (ED), www.potenslinjen.se, we examine how potential users, their partners, and medical doctors are enrolled in the process of creating the Swedish Viagra user. Contextualized against other critical work on Viagra, our analysis shows how the commercial discourse embeds the ED patient into a network of actors. Three separate actors are co-constituted and enrolled by this erectile dysfunction information discourse, comprising Viagra marketing material in a country which forbids direct to consumer advertising of prescription medication. Doctors are enrolled to produce the cultural authority of expert medical knowledge, whereas partners are given responsibility for the emotional aspects of a man’s sexuality and encouraged to direct the man toward the relationship-saving Viagra. Throughout, though, the man is the patient responsible for taking Viagra to fix his dysfunctioning penis. We problematize this individualised solution by contrasting it with the social aspects of the discourse and examining other qualitative and historical studies of impotence. We then ask if the enrolment presented by the Swedish Viagra website could be (mis)used to expand the circle of actors involved in ED, redefi ning the ‘problem’ and opening for a wider variety of treatments.

    5 frågor med… Cecilia Åsberg2011In: Rum och rörelse: vänbok till Forum för genusvetenskap och jämställdhet / [ed] Stina Backman, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2011, 1, p. 29-32Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    I akademin är det vanligt att man högtidlighåller och firar framstående och seniora professorer som fyller jämt genom att författa en vänbok. Jag har i min egen bokhylla flera sådana volymer och de har alla det gemensamt att kollegor eller andra som står jubilaren nära har författat ett kapitel eller avsnitt. Temat för boken brukar vara ett särskilt vetenskapligt fält, en fråga eller en metod som ligger födelsedagsbarnet varmt om hjärtat. På så sätt visar man professorn sin uppskattning och tecknar i viss mån hans eller hennes vetenskapliga värv. Det du nu håller i din hand är just en sådan vänbok men av ett litet annat slag. Jubilaren i det här fallet är nämligen inte en person, inte någon framstående forskare och professor. Jubilaren som tillägnas denna bok är en mycket speciell organisation i det akademiska landskapet och heter Forum för genusvetenskap och jämställdhet. Anledningen till att vi författat denna vänbok är att Forum som inrättning vid Linköpings universitetfyllt 25 år och vi vill på detta sätt hylla vår vän!

    Abstract [en]

    Recent stirrings wihin the humanities and the social sciences, perhaps especially within feminist theory, have engendered new materialist, feminist materialist and posthumanist approaches to life worlds that exceeds the limiting horizon of both andro- and anthopocentrism. This position paper maps out some of these recent theoretical trends of a form of feminist post-humanities with special attention paid to material bodies (transcoproreality), non-human animals and other organisms we are intimately related to, non-human agents of the world, and the environment (environmental humanities).

    Editorial: Getting into the Habit2011In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 3p. 141-143Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this issue of NORA we present three original articles on three diverse topics by authors from three different countries. The first article in this issue concerns popular therapeutic culture, such as self-help books, TV programmes, and Internet resources, that help us make sense of the ideal of “the good couple”. In this article, Sara Eldén argues that the cultural narratives of “the good couple” both reproduce and resist stereotypes. This is true not least with reference to gender and gender inequality. The second article, an Icelandic piece by Anna Karlsdóttir and Audur H. Ingólfsdóttir, maps out the demographic changes in a rural Icelandic village and the gendered outcome of such socio-economic rearrangements. The third article, by Ingrid Guldvik, grapples with the pros and cons of the introduction and adoption of gender quotas. She explores and evaluates the criteria that form the basis for a strong  gender quota regime in the Norwegian context of local politics.

    This issue’s Taking Turns text, “Feminist Theory and that Critical Edge”, by Icelandic anthropologist Kristín Loftsdóttir, highlights the need for self-positioning in feminist theorizing and research in order to nourish the critical edge that remains so essential to feminist studies. In her text she underlines the importance of being careful with how we use central concepts, such as “gender equality”, especially in relation to fields such as international development and peace-keeping, as well as research addressing multiculturalism. These are all fields where Loftsdo´ ttir sees profound risks of reproducing colonizing discourses and relationships, not least in the Nordic countries, which have often been misperceived as standing outside the history of colonialism.

    Abstract [en]

    In this commentary, the microscopic animals of the genus Rotifera, or "rotifers," emerge as a theory-provoking nonhuman animal. Rotifers embody otherness in ways that may intrigue scholars within both Human-Animal Studies and feminist science studies. In their encounter with rotifers, such fields of research (and others) might also engage each other in new, unexpected, and fruitful ways, as is here argued.

    Abstract [en]

    This issue of NORA brings together three articles that could be seen as addressing the question “What is normal?” in three very different ways. These articles demonstrate that this seemingly simple question opens up possibilities for an immense variety of inquiries. All three could be said to be dealing with the making normal of certain heterosexual practices. Two of them explicitly address how heteronormativity (a term well known for the NORA readers versed in queer feminist theory) and personhood are co-constituted, while the third one is a much-needed cartography of assumptions within research on violence and gender.

    Prescribing for the "Swedish Viagra Man"2011In: Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, ISSN 0009-9236, E-ISSN 1532-6535, Vol. 89, no 1, p. 15-16Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Cultural and social studies of sildenafil (Viagra) have shown how it in influence more than just blood flow in the penis. Sildenafil has introduced the term "erectile dysfunction" (ED) to the general public, changing wider cultural perceptions and the treatment of impotence. This article presents results from a study on how this pharmaceutical drug was introduced to a Swedish audience, where direct-to-consumer marketing is not all allowed. Our studies of the online market information (presented as health education) show that not only does the globalization of the pharmaceutical market make medicines available to international consumers, it also spreads ideas about the healthy subjectivities— gendered identities and behaviors—those medicines are prescribing. This, we feel, calls for further critical consideration to articulate the prescribed social practices that prescription medicines carry.

    Biology is a feminist issue: Interview with Lynda Birke2010In: The European Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 1350-5068, E-ISSN 1461-7420, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 413-423Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is an interview with Professor Lynda Birke (University of Chester, UK), one of the key figures of feminist science studies. She is a pioneer of feminist biology and of materialist feminist thought, as well as of the new and emerging field of hum-animal studies (HAS). This interview was conducted over email in two time periods, in the spring of 2008 and 2010. The format allowed for comments on previous writings and an engagement in an open-ended dialogue. Professor Birke talks about her key arguments and outlooks on a changing field of research. The work of this English biologist is typical of a long and continuous feminist engagement with biology and ontological matters that reaches well beyond the more recently articulated material turn of feminist theory. It touches upon feminist issues beyond the usual comfort zones of gender constructionism and human-centred research. Perhaps less recognized than for instance the names of Donna Haraway or Karen Barad, Lynda Birkes oeuvre is part of the same long-standing and twofold critique from feminist scholars qua trained natural scientists. On the one hand, theirs is a powerful critique of biological determinism; on the other, an acutely observed contemporary critique of how merely cultural or socially reductionist approaches to the effervescently lively and biological might leave the corporeal, environmental or non-human animal critically undertheorized within feminist scholarship. In highlighting the work and arguments of Lynda Birke, it is hoped here to provide an accessible introduction to the critical questions and challenges that circumvent contemporary discussions within feminist technoscience as theory and political practice.

    Enter Cyborg: tracing the historiography and ontological turn of feminist technoscience studies2010In: International Journal of Feminist Technosciences, ISSN 1654-6792Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The cyborg is a figure we now easily connect with early 1990s feminist technoscience studies,indeed it is a foundational figure of the field. However, cyborgs do not just trace older, but also a lot more ambiguous and less feminist roots within our technoscientific modernity. Theaim of this article is to provide a genealogical map of feminist entanglements with especiallythe biological sciences and with the body.
