    The "stranger" among Swedish "homo academicus"2019In: Higher Education, ISSN 0018-1560, E-ISSN 1573-174X, Vol. 77, no 2, p. 213-228Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with individuals of immigrant background in Swedish higher education—i.e., those who have a PhD and work in Swedish universities. The aim of the study is to examine whether and how factors other than academic qualifications—such as gender and migrant background—may affect the individual’s ability to find employment and pursue a successful career in a Swedish institution of higher education. The data used in the first section are Swedish registry data (LISA database and population), administered by Statistics Sweden. The second part of the paper is based on semi-structured interviews with 19 academics of migrant background. The results show that, given the same work experience and compared to the reference group (born in Sweden with at least one Swedish-born parent), individuals born in Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America are, firstly, more likely to be unemployed and, secondly, if they are employed, to have a lower income (lower position). The ways in which such gaps arises are also examined.

    Beyond Informality: Intimacy and Commerce at the Caravanning Trade Fair2017In: Ethnographies of Conferences and Trade Fairs: Shaping Industries, Creating Professionals / [ed] Hege Høyer Leivestad, Anette Nyqvist, Cham, Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, p. 129-145Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the geographical peripheries of European cities, trade fairs gather thousands of caravan- and motorhome enthusiasts every year; chasing the latest news from the so-called “mobile living” industry. These trade fairs are also spectacular social events, sporting temporary trade fair campsites, as well as a wide range of entertainment and activities. This chapter asks how we can understand the caravanning trade fair as a market space that challenges the dichotomy between the formal and informal economy. By ethnographically approaching a specific Swedish trade fair, Elmia Caravan and Motorhome, Leivestad looks at how the fair becomes a sphere where the selling of dwellings take place through a continuous reproduction of “like-mindedness” in an environment characterized by close connections between retailers, manufacturers and customers.

    Kinship on the waterfront: logistics labour in a global port2021In: Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, ISSN 1359-0987, E-ISSN 1467-9655, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 518-533Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how kinship forms a contested element of labour under capitalist distribution. The focus of the article is on a thriving Spanish container port where the dockworker collective has been steadily growing since the multinational companies first arrived in the 1970s. In the wake of containerization – a standardized system of freight transport based on the intermodal shipping container – dock work has been revalued and become attractive in an area otherwise characterized by high unemployment rates and below-average salaries. Drawing on ethnographic research, the article analyses how unionized dockworkers are met with stigmatization from the general public and criticized for their intergenerational access to ‘container capital’. The article contributes to current anthropological debates around the role of labour under global capitalism by tracing the links between kinship and labour in the making of a global port.

    Who cares about the cargo? Container economies in a European transshipment port2021In: Focaal: European Journal of Anthropology, ISSN 0920-1297, E-ISSN 1558-5263, no 89, p. 52-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While the shipping container has been hyped as the most potent symbol of global trade, it is simultaneously a unit of measure, a medium of exchange, and a material abstraction of heterogeneous use value. This article places the container and its anonymized cargo as part of the everyday logistics of commodity circulation in the Spanish Port of Algeciras Bay-a transshipment hub at the Strait of Gibraltar. By disentangling the shipping container's multiple repertoires, this article focuses on how the shipping container transforms and converts the value of cargo and mediates logistics labor in the port.

    Individuals and Industries: Large-Scale Professional Gatherings as Ethnographic Fields2017In: Ethnographies of Conferences and Trade Fairs: Shaping Industries, Creating Professionals / [ed] Hege Høyer Leivestad, Anette Nyqvist, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, p. 1-21Chapter in book (Refereed)
    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.

    Inside container economies2021In: Focaal: European Journal of Anthropology, ISSN 0920-1297, E-ISSN 1558-5263, no 89, p. 1-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This introduction proposes an anthropology of global cargo circulation by placing the maritime shipping industry at the center of global capitalism. With container economies we refer to the maritime global circulation of cargo that is sustained by an undervalued labor force, dependent upon unstable logistics infrastructures and driven by speculative capital. Container economies, we argue, are produced by adding, moving, and destroying value through the maritime supply chain. In this introduction, we reflect upon the implications of containerization and its wider consequences for logistics labor. We argue that maritime logistics and labor is best understood by taking into account their wider networks of dependency expressed through kinship relations, ethnicity and coexisting regimes of value.

    A 20 dollar note: 'success stories' of Swedish business actors with Iranian origin2020In: Social Identities, ISSN 1350-4630, E-ISSN 1363-0296, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 219-232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the career narratives of entrepreneurs with migrant background in the Swedish business sector. Statistics show that the proportion of individuals with a migrant background who reach so-called top-positions in Swedish society is in general low. Migrants with Iranian background is an exception as many of them have reached high positions as professionals in business corporations and themselves established high-profile businesses in Sweden. Based on in-depth interviews with entrepreneurs and managers with Iranian origin, we will in this article look at how their background is made relevant when reflecting upon professional success and failure. The article is concerned with their exceptional professional achievements and, in particular, the individuals' positioning in relation to their 'society of migration', their society of origin, and the social networks are embedded in as migrants with an Iranian origin. The article shows how narratives of success tend to emphasize the struggles of a 'lonely fighter' while at the same time dismiss discrimination as an explanatory factor. The entrepreneurs' success stories nevertheless focus on how one's career path as innovators and 'agents of social change' is intimately linked with a migrant past and experience.

    Lives on Wheels: Caravan Homes in Contemporary Europe2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the public imaginary the caravan has time and again been associated with stigmatised groups in society. Nevertheless, this vehicle-home has held a visible position in Western Europe’s leisure landscape in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries as a potent symbol of working-class tourism. But what happens when presumably mobile caravans are used for long-term and full-time ‘static’ housing? Based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted on campsites in Spain and Sweden, as well as within the camping industry, this study depicts how the caravan and the campsite’s ambiguous material qualities both come to fit and to challenge conventional domestic ideals. Among lower-middle-class and working-class Europeans, a growing use of mobile dwellings is closely related to issues concerning lifestyle changes and retirement and ideal notions of domestic downsizing. The thesis thus tunes in on what is identified as an emergence of an alternative housing form in a Western European context, wherein materiality and mobility become interrelated through a temporal, spatial and social notion of potential mobility. By addressing how the caravan, as a potentially mobile domestic form, produces specific spatiotemporal imaginations and practices, this thesis demonstrates how it furthermore comes to be incorporated into a multifaceted withdrawal to a ‘good life’ in times of uncertainty.

    Politics of scale: Colossal containerships and the crisis in global shipping2021In: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 3-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses overcapacity and crisis in global shipping through the case of the HMM Algeciras, the world's largest containership inaugurated in 2020. When she left the South Korean shipyard where she was built, the HMM Algeciras (with a size of two soccer fields) could carry 24,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) across the world's oceans. By following the mega-containership's links to two South Korean shipping companies, Hyundai Merchant Marine and Hanjin Shipping, and her connections to a southern European port, the authors unpack some of the current flip sides of global maritime shipping. In this article, the authors argue that the promise of profit and endless growth, which has led to overcapacity in global maritime shipping, is spurred on by what they call ‘false economies of scale’. Claims of the future profitability of colossal containerships are, they argue, state-driven political performances of scale.

    Campsite Migrants: British Caravanners and Homemaking in Benidorm2017In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 181-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on ethnographic fieldwork amongst British migrants on a Spanish Camping and caravan site, this article argues that the home is a productive entrance point for understanding the dynamics of this form of migration. Whilst campsites are planned and legally regulated as leisure spheres for mobile camping, touring caravans provide an affordable option for migrants otherwise excluded from the Spanish property market. In this article, I show how economic activities are centred on the caravan homemaking wherein mobile dwellings are transformed into - and used as - immobile living units. The making of the caravan home is furthermore central to the shaping and maintenance of social networks of support that are based on ‘handyman’ manual labour and a cash economy.

    Caravan Cultures: Second Homes on Wheels2018In: The Routledge Handbook on Second Home Tourism and Mobilities / [ed] Michael Hall; Dieter Müller, Routledge, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Motorised camping had its real breakthrough in Europe in the 1950s and 1960s, largely following the post-war expansion in private car use. An increasing popularity of camping eventually came to place the caravan as one of the most potent symbols of working-class leisure. More recently, what can be seen as a renewed interest in mobile dwellings, associated with new waves of lifestyle mobility as well as movements of domestic downsizing, resonates with a common and strong popular association between second homes on wheels and a perceived freedom of mobility. This chapter disentangles the caravan as a specific category of second homes, by focusing on its part in the production of various meanings of mobility. Through an ethnographic case featuring seasonal regulars at a Swedish campsite, I draw attention to a class-sensible notion of mobility potential that informs contemporary European caravan dwelling. Finally, the ownership and maintenance of a caravan are both restricted and enabled, I argue, by legal and economic voids.

    The shipping container2022In: History and Anthropology, ISSN 0275-7206, E-ISSN 1477-2612, Vol. 33, no 2, p. 202-207Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When the Ever Given became stuck in the Suez Canal, the megaship was carrying 18,300 rectangular, steel boxes on her back. In the weeks and months after the incident, the concealed contents of the shipping containers – stuck in legal limbo – captured global attention. Technologically developed in the years after the Second World War, the standardized shipping container has featured as one of the protagonists of the transformations in international trade. But the container’s logic of concealment and transaction has made ‘the box’ a common figure also in popular culture and social theory. This essay interrogates the shipping container’s multiple repertoires by focussing on containers at work. By tracing how the shipping container moves through the port infrastructure this essay takes us from the Suez Canal towards another central maritime passageway: the Strait of Gibraltar. This essay reflects on the different scales at which the shipping container functions in the port: from heavy materiality to abstracted codes and units of measurement.
