    Organisational anthropology: doing ethnography in and among complex organisations2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Organisational Anthropology is a pioneering analysis of doing ethnographic fieldwork in different types of complex organizations. The book focuses on the process of initiating contact, establishing rapport and gaining the trust of the organization's members.The contributors work from the premise that doing fieldwork in an organization shares essential characteristics with fieldwork in more "classical" anthropological environments, but that it also poses some particular challenges to the ethnographer. These include the ideological or financial interests of the organizations, protection of resources and competition between organizations. Organisational Anthropology brings together and highlights crucial aspects of doing anthropology in contemporary complex settings, and will have wide appeal to students, researchers and academics in anthropology and organization studies.

    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.

    Access to all stages?: studying through policy in a culture of accessibility2013In: Organisational anthropology: doing ethnography in and among complex organisations / [ed] Christina Garsten, Anette Nyqvist, London: Pluto Press, 2013Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, I describe and discuss access as an ongoing situational and relational process of ethnographic fieldwork. I have two interrelated goals for this chapter, both concerning processual aspects of accessibility. Based on various research projects on the performativity of policy in such diverse fields as national social insurance politics and the financial market, I begin by proposing a contextualised view of access. I argue that a culture of accessibility has evolved within the Swedish public administration system, such that access has become the norm and that access policies are organising principles that shape the way ‘we live, act and think’ (Shore & Wright 1997:i) – and not least do they affect the civil servants working within government authorities. I then discuss how a problematising perspective on access processes can help shed light on methodological aspects concerning forms of engagement with and within formal organisations. In doing this, I hope to contribute to a more complex and nuanced conceptualisation of access, a key concern of any ethnographic inquiry. After describing accessibility as a culture and organising principle, I stop to ask four questions. Access of what? Where? To whom? For what purpose? As we all know, access is not merely a matter of getting through the door.

    Att skapa pengar och en bättre värld: en studie av aktörerna kring etiska fonder2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is one of five reports of a series of empirical studies aiming to map out the actors found around different products and explore if and in which ways these actor attempt to shape the product. The studies are part of the Score research program Organizing markets. This working paper is about the actors around ethical mutual funds.

    An ethical mutual fund is, in several senses, a dual product. Firstly, a mutual fund - weather it is categorized as ethical or not - is both a product and a service. The consumer pays for shares of a collection of securities and the management of these. In this working paper it is shown how the duality of ethical mutual funds is continuously upheld in various ways. The reification of the duality concerns the separation of the economic and the ethical, something which is reflected in the legal framework as well as the marketing of the ethical mutual funds. Ethical mutual funds are to both make capital grow and contribute to a better world.

    The fund company who make the selection of what shares of which companies are to be included in the fund as well as what investment strategies and goals the fund is to have creates mutual funds. When ethical mutual funds are created a set of different tools for selecting and screening are used. These screening methods shape the product as well as other market actors through sanctions. The three basic screening strategies; excluding, supporting and active participation may all be seen as sanctioning instruments since they, respectively, exclude, include and set out to change companies by way of negative or positive sanctioning.

    Before policy: creating authoritative knowledge for policy2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this session is to shed light on the basis of policy, to zoom in on how, by whom, where and why the stuff that policy is shaped upon is created. Policy-making is processual and all papers in the session focus on various aspects of the earliest stages of policy-making, looking into how the authoritative knowledge upon which policies then are crafted emerges.

    Such knowledge is typically constructed around numbers, which may thus be seen as “objects with agency” (Muniesa, Millo and Callon 2007). In what has been termed “a regime of calculation” (Porter 1995) and “a culture of numbers” (Knorr Cetina 1999), the seemingly objective and neutral character of numbers and statistics has been unveiled (see Miller 2001; Porter 1995; Rose 1999).

    Numbers and statistics are, from such a critical perspective, seen as political instruments and “bearers of implicit meaning” and as a way for power to operate in disguise by means of “governing by numbers” (Miller 2001; Nyqvist 2008; Thedvall 2006). Within such a line of reasoning it has been suggested that numbers act in four ways, namely, to establish expertise and authority, to make knowledge impersonal, to portray certainty and universality and to contribute to resolving situations of doubt, conflict and mistrust (Zaloom 2006).

    The study of the basis of policy allows for critical analysis of issues of power and the construction of regimes of truth. How does authoritative knowledge emerge? How are calculations and idioms developed to make new way of thinking hegemonic? All papers in this panel focus on and shed light on the knowledge that policies are shaped and constructed upon. The session opens up with a general introduction to the field stating the importance of studying the embryonic and formative stage of policy-making. The five invited papers deal, in various ways, with the creation of knowledge upon which policies within such different political areas such as environmental issues, immigration politics and financial policy is created and how. The session concludes with a presentation held by an invited discussant.

    Imagining the South Seas in Mid-Twentieth Century Sweden2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this paper is on the mediated lives of two Swedish men who for different reasons and at different times ended up living in the Pacific. One was Carl-Emil Pettersson, 1875-1937, the real-life person behind the absent, geographically remote, father of Pippi Longstocking, the popular fictional character created in a number of childen’s books by Astrid Lindgren. The other was the explorer, ethnographer, author and journalist Bengt Danielsson, “Resare-Bengt” (“Traveller-Bengt”), 1921-1997. Together they shaped the notion of life in the South Seas for generations of Swedes.

    The cosmopolitan literary genre of travel writing translates, mediates and circulates accounts from and of the world – from one local setting to another, and over time. Frequently it has been more influential in shaping perceptions of people and places than scholarly ethnographic publications. For 250 years, Western writers have travelled to the South Seas, found it to be ‘Paradise on Earth’ and written home about it. With this study of both a genre and a profession, I seek to understand how the discourse about this most romanticized area on earth is constructed and what makes it so resilient. In this instance, during one extended period, Pippi Longstocking’s father and Resare-Bengt as Swedish sojourners far away from a largely sedentary home milieu reached into the imagination of both children and adults, and could thereby also support each other.

    Insecurity in an Orange Envelope: Implications of a Reformed National Pension System in Sweden2015In: Political and Legal Anthropology Review (PoLAR), ISSN 1081-6976, E-ISSN 1555-2934, Vol. 38, no 2, p. 265-278Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I examine the implications of Sweden’s reformed national pension system and how this policy reconfigures the state – citizen relationship. By applying the methodological approach of “studying through” the study depicts a shift in responsibility from a state level to an individual level. More specifically, I here shed light on how politicians, technocrats and bureaucrats work to educate and foster the general public into responsible, hard working and financially literate citizens. The article further reveals that such attempts are not readily accepted or adopted by the citizens at the receiving end of the pension policy and so, instead of providing stability and security, this social security policy invokes a sense of insecurity in Swedish citizens.

    Markets, money and mobilities: transnational organizing: practices of a role model in the nexus of statecraft and market-making2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish national pension fund, Första AP-fonden, is a government authority and a fund company and thus situated in the nexus of statecraft and market-making. The fund’s claim to be “a role model among international pension fund managers” makes it an interesting site for a study of attempts to organize the financial market on an international level. This “study through” the practices and policies of Första AP-fonden provides insights of how the fund, by exploiting its dual role as fund company and state authority, acts on the financial market with an ambition of “doing good”. Through practices such as ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance-analysis), shareholder activism and its Ethical Council publishing a “black list” of companies that violate the fund’s codes of conduct attempts to, through expectations, norms and regulation, shape other market actors and thus the market and the study shed light on practices here used.

    Notes on the Location of Happiness2021In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 87-103Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Ombudskapitalisterna: institutionella ägares röst och roll2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår tids kapitalister är organisationer – inte individer. De är fondbolag, livförsäkringsbolag och pensionsfonder världen över och de kallas ofta institutionella ägare. Deras uppdrag är att vara ombud för sina kunder och investera kundernas kapital på ”bästa sätt”. Allt fler av dessa ombud vill framstå som aktiva och ansvarsfulla ägare. De hävdar att det är möjligt att både tjäna pengar och göra gott.Boken bygger på en etnografisk undersökning av hur och var institutionella ägare tar sitt ansvar. Vilka möjligheter har de institutionella ägarna att förvalta våra pengar på ett ansvarsfullt sätt?

    Reform and Responsibility in the Remaking of the Swedish National Pension System: Opening the Orange Envelope2016Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is a close up and detailed study through a national pension system. It is about how a policy, such as a national pension system, shifts responsibility from state to individuals and, thus, work to reconfigure the state – citizen relationship. The book reads as an ethnographic example of how contemporary power works by way of new forms of governance; it is an exploration into the art of governing and it includes the governed subjects – the citizens – of a large scale governmental policy process.

    With Sweden’s recently reformed national pension system as the illustrative example I depict how new forms of governance effectively shift responsibility from state level to an individual level. More specifically, I shed light on how politicians, technocrats and bureaucrats work to educate and foster the general public into responsible, hard working and financially literate citizens. I also show that such attempts are not readily accepted or adopted by the citizens at the receiving end of the pension policy and instead of providing stability and security this social security policy invokes a sense of insecurity in Swedish citizens.

    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.

    Sinande naturresurs och politisk handelsvara: en studie av aktörerna kring torsk2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is one of five reports of a series of empirical studies aiming to map out the actors found around different products and explore if and in which ways these actor attempt to shape the product. The studies are part of the Score research program Organizing markets. This working paper is about the actors around the fish cod. Cod has gone from being an, in a dual sense, common and rather unrestricted natural resource, seen as being limitlessly renewable to being a scarce, strictly controlled and supervised political product.The natural supply of cod was, for long, considered to be indefinite. The development of an efficient and large-scale fishing industry with more boats and better engines, modernized fishing tools and new inventions to preserve the catch led to the current situation of a general scarcity of cod in the worlds waters. Regulation is seen as the solution to the difficult equation of both saving the cod from extinction and the profession of fishermen and fishing industry important to many nations. International and national regulation, surveillance and sanctions are all part of the vast regulation of cod. National catch zones and annual catch quotas that are politically negotiated are examples of how cod is regulated on an international and political level.The actors around cod are many and hold varying and often times conflicting interests that are difficult to harmonize. The general attempt to save both the fish and the profession has led to that the cod now is a strictly regulated and controlled politicized product submitted to political negotiation and trade.A few decades ago cod was a relatively inexpensive, common and ordinary household food product. Now cod is an expensive, rare, exclusive and politically charged product.

    Sweden's national pension system as a political technology2011In: Policy worlds: anthropology and the analysis of contemporary power / [ed] Cris Shore, Susan Wright and Davide Però, New York: Berghahn books , 2011, p. 205-222Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter examines Sweden’s national pension system, focusing on how the design of the new pension scheme functioned as a political technology to simultaneously depoliticise and ‘responsibilise’ the subjects of the reform. My analysis sheds light on how tools of new governance may be embedded in the construction of a public policy. The design of Sweden’s new pension system recasts what was previously a political issue into a neutral, purely technical one to be dealt with by experts, not by elected politicians. i also explore how the construction of the policy effectively relocated responsibility for future pension levels from the state to the individual citizen.

    Talking like an institutional investor: On the gentle voice of financial giants2017In: Power, policy and profit: Corporate engagements in politics and government / [ed] Christina Garsten; Adrienne Sörbom, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2017, p. 134-151Chapter in book (Refereed)
    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.

    Abstract [en]
    • Purpose–In this paper the annual general meetings (AGM) of corporations are conceptualized as front-stage performances and dramas where the three roles of the corporation – the shareholder, manager and director – perform the corporation as a particular type of organization. The paper aims to discuss these issues.
    • Design/methodology/approach– Meeting ethnography conducted at four seasons of AGMs in Sweden.
    • Findings– The study sheds light on how the required AGM of public companies may be seen as a ritualized, legitimizing and trust-building corporate performance where the different roles of the corporation are played out in positioning procedures and where the corporation as an organizational form is enacted.
    • Originality/value– The topic is of this paper is clearly original. Looking at corporations from an anthropological angle, exploring foundation myths, rites and organizational cultures, have been employed earlier, but exploring AGMs from an anthropological angle, is new.

    The Role of Travel Literature in the Production of Paradise2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The cosmopolitan literary genre of travel writing translates, mediates and circulates accounts from and of the world from one local setting to another, and over time. This paper presents a planned study of Western travel writers’ persistent and persuasive accounts of life in the South Seas as ‘Paradise on Earth’. For 250 years, travel writers have travelled to the South Seas, found it to be ‘Paradise’ and written home about it. The forthcoming study is both of a genre and a profession in which I seek to understand how the discourse of ‘Paradise on Earth’ is constructed and also what makes it resilient. The texts analyzed will be in English and cover the genre from early accounts of British explorers through contemporary American and Australian travel literature that cater to a large readership. For comparative insight the more limited Swedish travel literature on the South Seas will also be taken into account. As a particular corpus, travel writing is one of the oldest forms of literature and has in fact been more influential in shaping perceptions of people and places than scholarly ethnographic publications. Contemporary travel literature lump together the thousands of tropical islands scattered in the South Sea and turn them into an idea rather than a geographical location. The project will contribute to a debate on exoticism and domination through textual (mis)representation. The issue at stake is: How does Western travel literature, past and present, produce the resilient notion of the South Seas as ‘Paradise on Earth’?

    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.

    Guld - dess dunkla glans2020Book (Other academic)
    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.

    The Shimmer and Shade of Gold2020Book (Other academic)
    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.
