2004 (English)In: Ethnos, ISSN 0014-1844, E-ISSN 1469-588X, Vol. 69, no 2, 204-228 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Research on racism is prolific but ethnographic studies of what could be termed racism in everyday local social life are much less common. The article examines local Swedish classifications of difference and belonging in relation to meanings of racism and considers how ideologies of equality relate to forms of exclusion and racist expressions. The aim is to discuss the articulation of distinctions of exclusion and inclusion in everyday contexts through the presence of the refugee Other. The material is based on fieldwork conducted during the first half of the 1990s in a small town in central Sweden.
