    Producing children's corporeal privacy: Ethnographic video recording as material-discursive practice2010In: Qualitative Research, ISSN 1468-7941, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 249-268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the use of video cameras in participant observation drawing on approximately 300 hours of video data from an ethnographic study of Swedish family life. Departing from Karen Barad’s post-humanistic perspective on scientific practices, the aim is to critically analyse how researchers, research participants and technology produce and negotiate children’s corporeal privacy. Ethnographic videotaping is understood as a material- discursive practice that creates and sustains boundaries between private and public, where videotaping is ideologically connected to a public sphere that may at times ‘intrude’ on children’s corporeal privacy. The limits of corporeal privacy are never fixed, but open for negotiation; ethnographers may therefore unintentionally transgress the boundary and thus be faced with ethical dilemmas. The fluidity of privacy calls for ethical reflexivity before, during and after fieldwork, and researchers must be sensitive to when ethical issues are at hand and how to deal with them.

    Rural youth, education, and citizenship in Sweden: Politics of recognition and redistribution2019In: The Palgrave Handbook of Citizenship and Education / [ed] Andrew Peterson, Garth Stahl, Hannah Soong, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, p. 1-16Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When young people are studied in relation to citizenship and education, geographical location is not always considered. When the emplacement of youth is addressed, a disproportional focus on schools and civic youth practices in city settings further mirrors an unreflected urban norm within the field. There is however a burgeoning literature that examines youth, education, and citizenship in rural settings that speaks to issues of the inclusion and participation of young people in society. The current chapter reviews Swedish literature on rural youth and tracks its theoretical and political underpinnings. The areas covered move from stereotypical representations of rurality to rural youths’ experiences and participation in formal and nonformal education to the ways in which neoliberal market logic results in an uneven distribution of educational and employment possibilities for young people on the countryside. The chapter argues that a divided empirical and analytical focus in previous research results in inconclusive arguments regarding the remedies suggested for overcoming geographic inequality. It is posited that a call for the cultural recognition of rural youth’s experiences of marginalization as a remedy for justice needs to be complemented with an argument for economic redistribution.

    Utvärdering av Mentorer i våldsprevention: Slutrapport2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten presenterar resultaten från en utvärdering av det våldsförebyggande programmet Mentorer i våldsprevention (MVP). Programmet Mentors in Violence Prevention kommer från USA och är ett utbildningsprogram som syftar till att förebygga killars och mäns våld. Organisationen Män för Jämställdhet har översatt programmet från engelska, anpassat det till svenska förhållanden och under perioden 2015-2017 spridit MVP i ett antal skolor i Sverige inom ramen för projektet ”En kommun fri från våld”. Det är den version av MVP som Män för Jämställdhet utvecklat och sprider som den här utvärderingen berör. Utvärderingen har genomförts på uppdrag av Skolverket.

    Unpacking ‘family troubles’, care and relationality across time and space2019In: Children's Geographies, ISSN 1473-3285, E-ISSN 1473-3277, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 501-513Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite significant work on family geographies in recent years, geographers have paid less attention to changes and challenges that may be considered 'family troubles' in diverse contexts. Through this editorial and the special section, we unpack time-space dynamics of ‘family troubles’ in diverse contexts, with a particular focus on care and relationality. Our discussion foregrounds ambiguities and tensions surrounding geographical proximity and propinguity, material-emotional responses, and diverse meanings of ‘family’, ‘home’ and belonging in the context of troubling changes in family lives, intergenerational relations and practices of care. We seek to establish an agenda for future geographical work and interdisciplinary dialogue on ‘family troubles’, vulnerabilities and social suffering in contexts of (troubling) changes and diversity. Such analyses are crucial in our efforts to envision a more relational understanding of our ‘being-in-the-world’, underpinned by care ethics and support for differentially positioned family members throughout the lifecourse and across generations.

    Desiring involved parenthood: Swedish middle-class parents’ engagement in their children’s education2009In: Diversity in Education: Proceedings of the 7th International Conference of the European Research Network About Parents in Education, 2009, p. 13-22Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores issues of governing in home-school relations among Swedish middle-class families. The empirical data is taken from a larger ethnographic study of family life and draws on participant observations with video camera in families, interviews with parents, and analysis of school letters written by teachers to parents. Theoretically, the paper departs from Michel Foucault’s and Judith Butler’s discussions on power and subjection, and argues that power and governing is exercised through a complex relationship between norms and the individual’s desire to become the expected subject. In the present paper, I show that home-school relations are characterized by a negotiation about the responsibility for children’s education and rearing. The division between public and private responsibility for children is negotiated in terms of expertise. Teachers understand themselves as ‘educational experts’ and are able to prescribe how parents are supposed to be involved in children’s education. Teachers construct parents as ‘rearing experts’ and ask them to take responsibility for their children’s behavior in school and to discipline them at home, a subject taken up by parents, in particular mothers. The paper argues that teachers homogenize parents and, consequently, obscure gender differences in parental involvement.

    Engagerat föräldraskap som norm och praktik2010In: Sosiologi i dag, ISSN 0332-6330, E-ISSN 1893-4617, Vol. 40, no 1-2, p. 78-98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This ethnographic study explores parenthood ideals and practices among eight Swedish middle-class couples. A pivotal term in the analysis is involved parenthood, which is understood as a cultural norm prescribing that parents are responsible for their children, that they should spend much time with them, and develop close relationships to them. The study shows that children and their activities structure parents’ daily routines and that childcare is prioritized over the parents’ own leisure activities. A distinction is made between parents’ time with and time for their children. While ‘time with children’ refers to undivided time spent with children, ‘time for children’ refers to childcare and household work that is carried out for the children’s sake. Even though both types of time could be regarded as child centered, parents ideally spend time with their children; however, facing time pressure they argue it is hard to live up to this ideal in everyday life. It is also argued that parental involvement has different meanings for men and women in that the majority of the women  assume primary responsibility for household work and childcare.

    Av det känsligare slaget: Män och våld mot kvinnor2019Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Mäns våld handlar om känslor. Våldsamma män är förbannade, kåta, irriterade och frustrerade. De utsatta kvinnorna och barnen lever i rädsla för att det kan hända igen. Men våldet rör också upp känslor hos andra. När mäns våld diskuteras i tidningar, tv och sociala medier framstår de män som utövar våld som motbjudande. De är värda vårt hat och vår avsky. De är kvinnomisshandlare, våldtäktsmän och tafsande killar på festivaler.   

    Denna bok bygger på mäns och killars berättelser om sitt fysiska och sexuella våld. Den ger unika inblickar i hur de tänker kring våldet, deras skam och rädsla för vad andra ska tycka, deras frustration och ilska när de blir uthängda som våldsverkare. Boken analyserar också hur mäns våld förstås i medier, inom politiken och bland unga.   

    Ett centralt tema är hur våldsamma män förstås som något annorlunda än vanliga, hederliga, jämställda unga killar och familjefäder. Boken handlar också om vad våldsamma män kan lära oss om föreställningar om manlighet. Om att gränsen mellan vi och dem kanske inte är så skarp, och att vi alla är en del av att upprätthålla en kultur där mäns våld mot kvinnor kan fortsätta, trots att det fördöms.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den italienske filosofen Giorgio Agamben ser i leken en kraft som kan smula sönder tiden och demolera strukturer. För barnet kan vad som helst som det får i händerna bli en leksak, även det heliga. Barnet har inget annat mål än att leka och leva i sig självt. Därför menar Agamben att barndomen utgör en risk för samhället.

    Chafing masculinity: Heterosexual violence and young men’s shame2019In: Feminism and Psychology, ISSN 0959-3535, E-ISSN 1461-7161, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 286-302Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of shame in feminist activism has been debated lately, where scholars particularly have discussed whether shame could enable individuals with privileged positions, such as heterosexual men, to align with vulnerable groups or prevent them from political action. Drawing on written stories submitted to a feminist anti-violence campaign, this paper explores young men's shame of having been sexist or sexually violent. Through displaying shame, they distance themselves from problematic past violent or sexist actions, producing or reconstructing a respectable masculine subjectivity. In their narratives, the young men at times embrace and adopt a "chafing masculinity", that is, an uncomfortable and troubling heteromasculine position. Drawing on these narratives, the paper discusses how shame - by exposing heterosexual men's uncontrolled discomfort and helping men to unlearn privilege - may be a politically progressive emotion and contribute to pro-feminist politics.

    Displaying shame: men’s violence towards women in a culture of gender equality2016In: Response-based approaches to the study of interpersonal violence / [ed] Margareta Hydén, David Gadd, Allan Wade, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016, p. 156-175Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Shame has been identified as a pivotal emotion in order to understand men’s violence, that repressing shame generates men’s aggression and violent behaviour, or that the community may make the man desist through communicating how shameful his violent crime is. In contrast, and inspired by affect theory, I argue that shame is a resource for perpetrators managing the boundaries produced between ‘normal’ and deviant men. Drawing on interviews with 44 Swedish men that have physically abused their female partners, the chapter explores how partner-violent men experience and communicate their feelings of shame. I analyse how the men display shame in order to manage anticipated and actual responses to their violence from friends, family, colleagues, and others.

    Foucault’s men, or what have masturbating boys and ancient men to do with masculinity?2020In: Routledge International Handbook of Masculinity Studies / [ed] Lucas Gottzén, Ulf Mellström & Tamara Shefer, Routledge, 2020, p. 62-71Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter provides an overview of how the work of Michel Foucault has been discussed within masculinity studies and feminist theory, and re-reads Focuault’s work as theories about men and masculinity. Two masculine figures that illustrate key components of his conceptual framework are discussed: the masturbating boy, where Foucault introduces the concepts dispositif (or apparatus) and biopower; and the free man in Greek and Latin antiquity, where he develops notions about the technologies of the self and the caesura of masculinity. These concepts are understood as technologies of gender that are useful to critical studies of men and masculinities.

    Geographies of anger and fear: Exploring the affective atmospheres of men's 'domestic' violence2017In: Social Work in a Glocalised World / [ed] Mona Livholts, Lia Bryant, London: Routledge, 2017, p. 106-118Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses how we could understand the affectivity of violence as a form of atmosphere, as moods and feelings that are not only experienced by individuals or collectives but also move around and coalesce places. The concept of atmosphere provides methodological tools to understand key questions in social work, such as domestic violence, and explore how they also include spatial and affective aspects. Two cases are analyzed that illustrate how the concept of atmospheres could be a useful tool for exploring men’s domestic violence and to highlight relations between affect, violence and materiality. The cases are drawn from two qualitative studies on men’s violence against women and children in Sweden.

    Abstract [sv]

    När framtiden ter sig osäker eller dyster blickar många tillbaka på det som man tror har varit en gång. Högern projicerar i dag sin nostalgi på en efterkrigstid präglad av etnisk homogenitet och stark välfärdsstat. Det finns nostalgi även på vänsterkanten, men där är melankolin mer framträdande. Vänstern har förlorat sin framtidsvision och har svårt att komma vidare. Men varken nostalgi eller melankoli innebär apati.

    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, I discuss children’s consumption and becoming, but avoiding the particular teleology of traditional developmental theories— that there is an adult final stage in children’s consumption socialization. Instead, I will propose a different way of understanding children’s consumption departing from the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Fèlix Guattari. This poststructuralist framework helps us to understand children (as well as adults) as incomplete and developing “becomings,” where their identity, agency, and consumption are created in relation to and in dependence of other humans and non-humans.

    Monsters in the Closet: The Affective Spaces of (Not) Coming Out as a Violent Man2017In: ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies, ISSN 1492-9732, E-ISSN 1492-9732, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 528-547Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From its origins in the LGBTQ community, coming out has become a narrative genre describing the experiences of recognizing and disclosing a variety of other stigmatized positions, including that of male perpetrators of intimate partner violence. Drawing on interviews with forty-four partner-violent men in Sweden, this paper explores how closets and outcomes are both discursively and spatially produced. It analyses the affective spaces of men’s coming-out stories, particularly how and where they disclose their violence, and how friends and others respond to their abuse. Violent men’s coming-out stories have similarities with those of other stigmatized groups. Since they experience their violence as shameful, they find it difficult to share their experiences with others and are careful not to be seen when seeking therapeutic help. At times, rumours about their violence circulate in their workplaces and cities, which affects the men’s feelings and movement in urban space. Their narratives have some unique aspects. While disclosing their violence, the men distance themselves from being categorized as violent men and their coming-out stories are not narratives of embracing a fixed identity. In addition, their narratives obscure their abuse and oppression of their victims.

    Violent men’s paths to batterer intervention programs: masculinity, turning points and narrative selves2019In: Nordic Journal of Criminology, ISSN 2578-983X, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 20-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on interviews with voluntary participants in intervention programmes for perpetrators of intimate partner violence in Sweden, the present article analyses violent men’s turning-point stories, that is, their narratives of deciding to start and starting treatment. Three types of turning-point stories are identified: narratives that describe men recognizing their violence either before or during treatment, and narratives of returning to treatment. Through these stories, the men not only present reasons for joining therapy, but also produce gendered narrative selves. In particular they present themselves as morally ‘good’ and self-conscious men by simultaneously acknowledging their abusive behaviour and distancing themselves from being violent men.

    Andra män: Maskulinitet, jämställdhet och normskapande2012Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige är världens mest jämställda land, med världens mest jämställda män. Åtminstone framställs det ofta så, både i offentlig debatt och i vardagliga samtal. Denna bild av den normale svenska mannen upprätthålls dock genom att något annat - eller någon annan - skapas som avvikande, annorlunda, obegriplig eller sjuk.

    I den här antologin diskuteras hur det som uppfattas som goda handlingar används för att representera det gemensamma, medan våldsbrott, kvinnomisshandel och sexism förklaras som ett verk av Andra män. Är det därför som män som misshandlat kvinnor har så svårt att se sig själva som kvinnomisshandlare? Är det därför som fördomsfulla stereotyper av invandrarmän används som förklaring till brott eller sexism?

    Hur kommer det sig i så fall att även feministiska män skapas som avvikande? Och vilka föreställningar utmanas egentligen när äldre män beskriver sina växande bröst som sexuellt laddade och njutbara? Varför kan män med funktionsnedsättning inte debattera hjälp till sex utan att ses som kvinnoförtryckare? Eller varför är pedofilen så närvarande i samtal mellan unga män på ett behandlingshem, medan mäns sexuella våld mot barn är så frånvarande i svenska diskussioner om mäns föräldraskap och män i barnomsorg?

    I Andra män diskuterar forskare från antropologi, genusvetenskap, socialt arbete, sociologi och ungdomsvetenskap hur Andra män pekas ut som avvikande, men också hur dessa män hanterar utpekandet.

    Mapping the field of masculinity studies2020In: Routledge International Handbook of Masculinity Studies / [ed] Lucas Gottzén, Ulf Mellström & Tamara Shefer, Routledge, 2020, p. 1-16Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decades, masculinity studies has become a well-established part of interdisciplinary gender research. This introduction discusses three different narratives about the field: one that emphasizes its roots in social sciences, one that problematizes its relation to other feminist scholarship and one that highlights its influences from humanities scholarship. The chapter troubles these narratives and proposes masculinity studies as ‘minor literature’, which is not occupied with canon formation or certain theories but rather destabilizes linear narratives about the field and aims for less hierarchical ontologies and epistemologies. The chapter also introduces the chapters and their contribution to masculinity studies, including decentring of global Northern and Western knowledge, advancing transnational and intersectional approaches, and developing masculinity studies as a transdisciplinary field to meet contemporary challenges.

    Routledge International Handbook of Masculinity Studies2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Routledge International Handbook of Masculinity Studies provides a contemporary critical and scholarly overview of theorizing and research on masculinities as well as emerging ideas and areas of study that are likely to shape research and understanding of gender and men in the future. 

    The forty-eight chapters of the handbook take an interdisciplinary approach to a range of topics on men and masculinities related to identity, sex, sexuality, culture, aesthetics, technology and pressing social issues. The handbook’s transnational lens acknowledges both the localities and global character of masculinity. A clear message in the book is the need for intersectional theorizing in dialogue with feminist, queer and sexuality studies in making sense of men and masculinities.

    Written in a clear and direct style, the handbook will appeal to students, teachers and researchers in the social sciences and humanities, as well as professionals, practitioners and activists.

    Introduction: complicating the emotions of men and masculinities2017In: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 12, no 3/4, p. 185-186Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Masculinity studies has for a long time been interested in emotions. Two models that predominate in the literature are the ‘unemotional man’ and the ‘angry man’. Considerations of the unemotional man center on the importance of the control of emotion and its centrality to masculinity. In this gendered morphology, men treat emotion as signs of weakness, which renders it difficult to display feelings as the act threatens their sense of masculinity. This behavior may make men emotionally incompetent and can pose substantial problems for individual men, while it also upholds the gender order since stoicism and rationality are culturally idealized. Ironically, this emotional regime has also been said to cause men’s anger and violence. From this perspective, men’s emotional incompetence may make them too emotional since they are unable to deal with difficult emotions.

    The contributions to this special issue problematize this binarized discourse and its often essentialist understanding of men and their emotional lives.

    Creating safe atmospheres? Children’s experiences of grandparents’ affective and spatial responses to domestic violence2019In: Children's Geographies, ISSN 1473-3285, E-ISSN 1473-3277, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 514-526Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While grandparenting literature has primarily discussed intergenerational relations in families with ‘normal’ everyday problems, such as childcare, it has largely neglected more troublesome issues, such as domestic violence. Based on interviews with ten children and teens, this article explores grandchildren’s experiences of how their grandparents have responded when they were being exposed to violence in the intermediate generation. These responses have affective-spatial aspects as the grandparents contributed to what we call ‘safe atmospheres’. Grandparents’ homes often provided a sense of safety, and grandparents at times contributed to a safe atmosphere in their grandchildren’s homes and helped to create safety and comfort in non-domestic places. Some grandparents, however, could be unsupportive and fail to contribute to safe atmospheres. Although physical space is important to create safety, in order to create a safe atmosphere, it has to correspond to a relational movement where grandparents side with their grandchildren.

    The aim of this special issue is to enable a dialogue between masculinity studies and transgender studies and attempt to find common areas of inquiry and mutual knowledge production in such conventionally divided arenas. The contributions to the issue explore a multiplicity of masculinities, which are seen as situational positions that can be deployed and activated by a variety of bodies, and in this way attempt to de-essentialize masculinity as grounded in a cis-male body.

    Hegemonic masculinity: Combining theory and practice in gender interventions2015In: Culture, Health and Sexuality, ISSN 1369-1058, E-ISSN 1464-5351, Vol. 17, no S 2, p. S 112-S 127Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of hegemonic masculinity has been used in gender studies since the early-1980s to explain men’s power over women. Stressing the legitimating power of consent (rather than crude physical or political power to ensure submission), it has been used to explain men’s health behaviours and the use of violence. Gender activists and others seeking to change men’s relations with women have mobilised the concept of hegemonic masculinity in interventions, but the links between gender theory and activism have often not been explored. The translation of ‘hegemonic masculinity’ into interventions is little examined. We show how, in South Africa and Sweden, the concept has been used to inform theoretically-based gender interventions and to ensure that men are brought into broader social efforts to build gender equity. We discuss the practical translational challenges of using gender theory broadly, and hegemonic masculinity in particular, in a Swedish case study, of the intervention Machofabriken [The Macho Factory], and illustrate how the concept is brought to life in this activist work with men. The concept has considerable practical application in developing a sustainable praxis of theoretically grounded interventions that are more likely to have enduring effect, but evaluating broader societal change in hegemonic masculinity remains an enduring challenge.

    Distinctions and boundaries: men's talk about food celebrities2019In: British Food Journal, ISSN 0007-070X, E-ISSN 1758-4108, Vol. 121, no 2, p. 520-532Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this article is to explore how a group of men relate to food celebrities in the contemporary Swedish food-media landscape, especially celebrity chefs on TV.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Semi-structured interviews with 31 men in Sweden (22-88 years of age), with different backgrounds and with a variety of interest in food.

    Findings

    The paper demonstrates different ways in which the men relate to food celebrities. The men produce cultural distinctions of taste and symbolic boundaries, primarily related to gender and age, but also class. Through this, a specific position of ‘just right’ emerged. This position is about aversion to excess, such as exaggerated gendered performances or pretentious forms of cooking. One individual plays a particularly central role in the stories: actor and celebrity chef Per Morberg. He comes across as a complex cultural figure: a symbol of slobbish and tasteless cooking and a symbol of excess. At the same time, he is mentioned as the sole example of the exact opposite – as a celebrity chef who represents authenticity.

    Practical implications

    Scholars and policy makers must be careful of assuming culinary or social influence on consumers from food celebrities simply based on their media representations. As shown here and in similar studies, people relate to them and interpret their performances in a variety of ways.

    Originality/value

    This is one of the few studies that target the role of food celebrities in contemporary Western consumer culture from the point of view of the consumers rather than analyses of media representations.

    Masculinity and the sociality of cooking in men’s everyday lives2017In: Sociological Review, ISSN 0038-0261, E-ISSN 1467-954X, Vol. 65, no 4, p. 816-831Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how 31 Swedish men (22–88 years old) talk about the sociality of domestic cooking in everyday life. We demonstrate how domestic cooking – for oneself, for others and with others – is part of the understanding of contemporary Swedish men and how the expressed sociality of cooking is intertwined with accomplishments of masculinity. The sociality of cooking is not only about homosocial leisure but also a way for men to maintain heterosocial relationships and assume domestic responsibility. We discuss a potential cultural transition in men's domestic meal sociality and suggest the need for studies of gendered divisions of domestic work and the sociology of food to analyse how cooking shares similar properties to those of commensality, and the implications of this regarding gender relations.

    Whore! Affect, sexualized aggression and resistance in young social media users’ interaction2019In: Sexualities, ISSN 1363-4607, E-ISSN 1461-7382Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we explore the affectivity of the sexualized epithet ‘whore’ when employed by 150 young social media users in Sweden. By adopting a Deleuze-Guattarian inspired approach to affect we illustrate how ‘whore’ works to restrict and inhibit girls’ affective capacities within the online sexuality assemblage. We further explore targets’ and peers’ resistance to being called whore. We found that targets and peers alike employ aggressive and sexualized language to rebuke and resist the term whore. We argue that these acts of resistance may serve to further support the postfeminist logic and values that underpin the continued monitoring of girls.

    Masculinity and affect: new possibilities, new agendas2018In: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 13, no 3-4, p. 145-157Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this special issue is to create a greater dialogue between affect studies and masculinity studies. The contributions to the issue explore how affect functions as non-discursive intensities that may enable new forms of gendered subjectivities that subvert core tenets of masculinity, as well as how affect may be channeled into masculinities that reaffirm hegemonic or normative gender constructs. In this introduction, we discuss how masculinity studies has approached men and emotions, outline theoretical approaches to affective masculinities that may help scholars rethink and destabilize masculinity, and discuss how affect and masculinity may be approached methodologically.
