    The Employment Contract as Materialization of Social Order Contracts at Albert Ranft's Stockholm theatres, 1895-19262017In: Nordic Theatre Studies, ISSN 0904-6380, E-ISSN 2002-3898, Vol. 29, no 1, p. 81-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the archive, the materialized traces of theatrical organization and performances remain. In this paper, we focus on the employment contract, as a type of source material commonly found but rarely studied in theatre studies. Empirically, the paper is based on a study of contracts from Albert Ranft's Stockholm theatres, 1895-1926. Ranft built his commercially funded theatrical empire in Stockholm in a period when the competition from subsidized theatre was minimal, and for a time dominated the Stockholm theatres. The study demonstrates how the study of employment contracts allows us to form an understanding of power relations between managers on the one hand, and artists and directors on the other, and also the formal and social aspects of the employment contracts. In the case of Albert Ranft, the contracts bear evidence of his dominant position in Stockholm theatre, which in turn afforded him an unusually powerful position in relation to his employees. The relationship between the formal and social contract is explored, and it is suggested that the formal contract could be seen as a photographic negative of the social contract: if there is an extensive social contract, the formal contract will be more elaborate, and vice versa. The extensive formal contracts of the studied period might therefore be seen as evidence of a relatively thin social contract, implying that industry norms were, at the time, not institutionalized enough to be taken for granted.

    Being everybody's accomplice: Trust and control in eco-labelling2017In: Trust in regulatory regimes / [ed] Frédérique Six, Koen Verhoest, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2017, p. 145-180Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the chapter “Being everybody’s accomplice: trust and control in eco-labelling”, the focus is on regulatory regimes as intermediaries. Using case studies of three Swedish eco-labelling organizations (Good Environmental Choice, The Swan, and KRAV), the chapter studies how regulators, through the creation of impersonal system trust, are able to act as guardians of trust on globalized markets. In order to do so, they need to be credible as accomplices to both citizens and organizations (regulatees). Voluntary private regulators need to solve the paradox of appearing to distrust regulatees (in order to attain legitimacy as independent regulators), while simultaneously creating a trusting relationship with them (in order to enable a business relationship and ensure compliance). The studied labelling organizations use a combination of strategies to solve this dilemma. In terms of organizing, the different tasks necessary to create an eco-label are separated and decoupled. However, as it is not the act of monitoring itself that breeds distrust, but rather the attitude of distrust that it tends to signal, such organizational strategies need to be combined with sensegiving strategies, seen here in terms of three storylines, highlighting different aspects or interpretations of the regulatory regime, and aimed at different stakeholders. The chapter thus shows how the intermediary position of a regulatory actor allows it to act as a guardian of trust, but giving this chain of strangers legitimacy and authority, and ensuring compliance with its regulatory regime creates a dilemma that requires strategic sensegiving and organizing in order to be solved.

    “I trust they’re checking”: the role of eco-labels in reducing consumer uncertainty2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how uncertainty is resolved on complex markets with socially distant actors, and the role of trust in this resolution, through a qualitative study of the role of eco-labels on Swedish market of ecological consumer goods, and the attitudes of eco-friendly consumers. It is shown how eco-labels function as devices to resolve consumer uncertainty in three different ways: firstly, eco-labels are control organisations, who make up for the inability for the consumer to personally monitor or control the producers, by providing third-party certification. For consumers, however, the uncertainty resolution is based not on monitoring, but on trust, as eco-labels function as guardians of trust, and offer guarantees made trustworthy primarily by their values, and their independence from commercial actors. This system is thus able to create trust through a context of social relations. But the system also creates trust, and resolves uncertainty, in a third way, as the eco-labels through the store context where the consumer encounters them are transformed to signs, which are given meaning by their relation to other signs and environmental groups. Trust is therefore created not solely through social context, but also through semiotic context, by creating a physical, trustworthy sign of sustainable production. The study thus shows how the organisation of trust creation must draw on a semiotic as well as social context, in order to provide trust on mass markets, and furthermore how third-party certification bodies must function not only as guardians of trust, but also as creators of signs, if they are to be able to build consumer trust.

    A Brighter Future? The Transformative Power of Models in Social Services2023In: Transforming subjectivities: studies in human malleability in contemporary times / [ed] Cecilia Hansen Löfstrand; Kerstin Jacobsson, London: Routledge, 2023Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A core tenet of social work is that clients should be helped to work on themselves so they can improve their lives and their abilities to a point where they are no longer reliant on social services for support. To make this possible, social workers have different models at their disposal. While the clients are ostensibly governed by these techniques, models of social work also shape the subjectivities of the social workers applying them. In this chapter, our focus is on the effect of these models on social workers. Our ethnographic approach allows for a more nuanced exploration of how a technology of governmentality is received by those subjected to it, in this case, the social workers. The study highlights that the effects of the same model on practices and perceptions in the same social context differ between individuals, and allows a nuanced understanding of the effects of governmentality in practice.
