    Caught in between: Grandparents’ Responses to Children Exposed to Domestic Violence2015In: A Response-based approach to the study of interpersonal violence / [ed] Margareta Hydén, David Gadd, Alan Wade, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, 1, p. 98-114Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Interpersonal violence has been the focus of research within the social sciences for some considerable time. Yet inquiries about the causes of interpersonal violence and the effects on the victims have dominated the field of research and clinical practice. Central to the contributions in this volume is the idea that interpersonal violence is a social action embedded in responses from various actors. These include actions, words and behaviour from friends and family, ordinary citizens, social workers and criminal justice professionals. These responses, as the contributors to this volume all show, make a difference in terms of how violence is understood, resisted and come to terms with in its immediate aftermath and over the longer term. Bringing together an international network of scholars and practitioners from a range of disciplines and fields of practice, this book maps and expands research on interpersonal violence. In doing so, it opens an important new terrain on which social responses to violence can be fully interrogated in terms of their intentions, meanings and outcomes.

    In Lust We Trust? Masculinity and Sexual Desire in Later Life2016In: Men and Masculinities, ISSN 1097-184X, E-ISSN 1552-6828, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 192-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent years have seen increasing discussions of sexuality in later life. Today, continued sexual activity is gradually understood as a positive and healthy aspect of aging, in contrast to how aging historically was primarily associated with asexuality. Old men’s sexual function, in particular, has been a topic of notable interest to scholars and popular media alike, an interest spurred not least by the market introduction of Viagra and other sexuo-pharmaceuticals. If aging men’s sexual function has been the object of extensive discussion, considerably less attention has been given to the question of sexual desire in later life, neither women’s nor men’s. Old men’s sexual desire is a potentially conflictual field as men are often expected to be sexually willing but the old man who shows continued sexual interest also run the risk of being labeled a “dirty old man.” This article focuses on old men, masculinity, and sexual desire through the interview narratives of Swedish med between sixty-seven and eighty-seven years old. In dialogue with Sara Ahmed’s work on queer phenomenology, the article discusses asserted sexual desire as a form of orientation that shapes old men’s heterosexual subjectivities. The interviewees expressed that sexual desire continued to be an important aspect of later life, but sexual desire was also understood to vanish as one aged. For those who expressed a lack of sexual desire, this was sometimes experienced as a “gender trouble” but was also made sense of in relation to feeling old. All on all, intimacy was a central way of making sense of later life sexuality. The article concludes that narratives on intimacy could be understood as ways of retaining a heterosexual orientation as one ages. Through narratives of intimacy men could express a continued interest in sexuality, but in positive and unthreatening ways that avoided the stigmatization of being a dirty old man.

    Abstract [sv]

    Trots ett ökat teoretiserande av queer tid och queera temporaliteter är queerforskningens intresse för åldrande och äldre påfallande ljumt. Att tänka samman queerteori och åldrandeforskning är dock ett angeläget och löftesrikt projekt som inte enbart handlar om att studera livsvillkoren för äldre LHBTQ-personer utan även om att utforska hur normativitet kan förstås i relation till äldre och det goda livet (i ålderdomen) i en vidare bemärkelse. Åldrandet och äldre har ofta, liksom queera liv, kommit att förknippas med skam, äckel och det bakåtsträvande: själva framtidens motsats. På senare tid har de negativa diskurserna om åldrande dock kommit att samsas med mer positiva, enligt vilka livet på ”äldre dar” innebär en möjlighet till fortsatt aktivitet och delaktighet och betraktas som en tid för självförverkligande efter pensioneringen. Kritiska forskare har problematiserat det goda/ /positiva/framgångsrika åldrandet som det formulerats inom såväl forskning som populärkultur och massmedia, och menar att nya, positiva diskurser riskerar att osynliggöra intersektionella ojämlikheter mellan äldre. Denna artikel utvecklar existerande kritisk forskning om positivt åldrande genom att diskutera heteronormativitet och hur positivt åldrande konstrueras som just positivt genom att associeras till tvåsamma heterosexuella relationer och barnbarn. Artikeln diskuterar uttryck för positivt åldrande inom massmedia och forskning och kopplar samman dessa med Sara Ahmeds teoretiserande av heterosexualitet, familj och lycka. Frammanandet av det positiva åldrandet och den sammanhängande heteronormativa ”lyckliga” intimiteten sker dock genom en kontrastering mot ett ”misslyckat” och ”olyckligt” åldrande, som knyts till åldrande med funktionsnedsättningar i allmänhet och demenssjukdom i synnerhet. Genom medicinska diskurser om ”sexuellt opassande beteenden” hos demenssjuka äldre positioneras dessa som problematiska, abjekta, och queera (icke)subjekt, vilkas intima relationer framställs som olyckliga relationer. Avslutningsvis diskuterar artikeln hur heteronormativa relationer och intimitet fyller en viktig funktion i konstruktionen av det positiva åldrande, som en länk till eller association med framtid och en disassociation med negativitet, förlust och död i åldrandet.

    “Love the kin you’re in?”: Kin network responses to women and children experiencing intimate partner violence2016In: Feminism and Psychology, ISSN 0959-3535, E-ISSN 1461-7161, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 444-463Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Intimate partner violence is often known to a wider social network. Still little research exists on the experiences of social networks, how they respond and how women and children experiencing intimate partner violence perceive these responses. This article draws on 16 qualitative interviews with women victims of intimate partner violence, intimate partner violence-exposed children and their relatives in three kin networks. The overall aim of this article is to study responses to intimate partner violence from a multivocal perspective where the possibly concurring and conflicting perspectives of both the victims and the networks are heard. More specifically, the article explores what responses are perceived as possible/impossible to end violence and create safety for women and children. The article shows how masculinity, in intersection with kin position and age, figures both as an obstacle and a possibility to end intimate partner violence. Moreover, the article shows that responses are shaped from intersections of age, kin and gender in victims, more specifically understandings of maturity and adulthood of female victims and how this linked to responsible motherhood. The study provided insights into responses to intimate partner violence as co-constructed in a wider social network and how a focus on multivocality may be useful for understanding the multidimensional character of responses to intimate partner violence.

    Children and Violence Interactions: Exploring Intimate Partner Violence and Children's Experiences of Responses2017In: Child Abuse Review, ISSN 0952-9136, E-ISSN 1099-0852, Vol. 26, p. 51-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While there is a growing research interest in the experiences of children exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV), the role of children's social networks, other than the role of mothers, has been little discussed. The aim of this article is to study older children's stories of how they, and the adults in their social networks, respond to IPV. More specifically, we are interested in how older children describe both their own responses when exposed to IPV and responses from adults. This article focuses on the narratives of older children since they are often in a liminal position between adulthood and childhood, which may be consequential for their and others’ responses to violence. The article shows that responses are interactional and that children's responses affect how adults respond. Our analysis suggests that adults are positioning children as either adult-like and competent or vulnerable, and this impacts significantly on the support that they receive. In our data, there are, however, also examples of middle ways where children are positioned as vulnerable yet capable. This seems linked to children's abilities to communicate their own needs. Although the study sample is limited, our results point to the significance of gender for how children respond.
