2021 (English)In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 87-103Article in journal, Editorial material (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article explores the world making capabilities of travel writing (Goodman 1978; Youngs 2013). The premise is that literary products are key elements in the configuration of the world itself and that specifically authors of travel accounts mediate the world to their readership at home (Archetti 1994).

By highlighting three different examples of travel writing, the article discusses the persistent notion of the tropical island as an actually existing paradise on earth. More specifically, the discussion focus around the notion that happiness exists in places to which one can travel to.

The examples at hand are two eighteenth century travel logs one French and one English; Louise-Antoine de Bougainville’s from 1772 and William Bligh’s from 1792, while the third and final example is a contemporary Swedish travel piece written by Anders Mathlein and first published in 2001.

Abstract [sv]

I 24 kapitel berättar socialantropologen Anette Nyqvist och fotografen Susanne Walström om världens mest mytomspunna metall. Författarna har i flera år rest till platser runt jorden där guld bryts, bearbetas, säljs och används. De skildrar inte bara guldets historia och dess skiftande användningsområden utan också den paradoxala motsättningen mellan den smutsiga framställningen och den glimrande lyxanvändningen.

Abstract [en]

In 24 chapters, social anthropologist Anette Nyqvist and photographer Susanne Walström tell the story of the world’s most fabled metal. Over several years, the authors travelled to places where gold is mined, refined, sold and ultimately used. The authors cover not only the history of gold and its varied applications but also the paradox between the dubious way in which it is often sourced and the glamorous end product.

Abstract [en]

The focus of this chapter is the world-making capacity of travel writing. The example and analysis highlight the significant roles that media and narratives have in processes of world-making. The chapter uses one particular story as an illustrative example of the suggestion that stories travel and that such travelling stories play significant roles in processes of world-making.

Abstract [en]

Conferences and trade fairs have during the past decades become a significant global industry in and of itself. Here the authors of this volume claim that such large-scale professional gatherings have become key sites for the making and negotiation of both industries and professions. The anthology is an attempt to make sense of conferences and trade fairs as phenomena in contemporary society. Large-scale professional gatherings are here understood as organized and particular events, bound by place and time, where a large number of professionals within defined industries assemble to network and to exchange information.

Abstract [en]

Anette Nyqvist analyzes responsible investment conferences as important meeting grounds for institutional investors, such as pension funds, mutual funds and insurance companies. At responsible investment conferences institutional investors not only seek new knowledge about the responsible investment industry, but they also look for opportunities for collaboration. Based on fieldwork conducted in New York and Paris this chapter deals with increased importance of socializing at industry conferences. It sheds light on the practice of networking and shows how this activity is now recognized as significant and organized elements of the industry conference, equal to the paper presentation or panel discussion.

Abstract [en]

By an analysis of the talk of institutional investors Anette Nyqvist describes and discusses some of the ways in which organizations having the primary goal of ‘making money’ increasingly also embark on projects of ‘doing good’. Empirically, Nyqvist focuses institutional investors, such as mutual funds, insurance companies and pension funds. These are large shareholder organizations commissioned to manage other people’s money which in later decades have emerged as influential front figures of the responsible investment industry, claiming to make money and make a difference and positioning themselves as the ‘active’ and ‘responsible’ do-gooders of finance. The chapter shows how institutional investors, seen as normative intermediary organizations, use ‘voice’, ‘dialogue’ and ‘small talk’ with the intent to (1) define and position themselves as a particular type of financial market actor, (2) foster and try to change companies that they own shares in and (3) set new standards for the investment industry.
