    I riktning mot en normkreativ kulturmiljövård: Metodutveckling utifrån exemplet Statens fastighetsverk i Sverige2018In: Kulturstudier, ISSN 1904-5352, E-ISSN 1904-5352, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 167-198Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utifrån tvärvetenskapliga perspektiv och metoder, hämtade från etnologin och kulturgeografin, och med en empirisk utgångspunkt i tre kulturmiljöer som förvaltas av Statens fastighetsverk (SFV) i Sverige, analyserar artikeln historiebruk i form av kulturarvsproduktion och föreslår ett applicerbart normkritiskt samt i förlängningen normkreativt angreppssätt för att möjliggöra alternativa, varierade och mer inkluderande historieskildringar kring kulturmiljöer. Genom att utveckla och integrera dessa synsätt och verktyg vill artikeln argumentera för att man får tillgång till nya berättelser om platsen; berättelser som går utöver den traditionella, „normala“ historien om staten, enskilda byggnaders materiella utformning och den sociokulturella och ekonomiska eliten. En långsiktig effekt blir att det möjliggör ökad mångfald och inkludering både i fråga om förmedling och representation av platser som komplexa rumsliga och sociokulturella helheter.

    The ethical potential of sound in public space: Migrant pan flute music and its potential to create moments of conviviality in a 'failed' public square2016In: Emotion, Space and Society, ISSN 1755-4586, E-ISSN 1878-0040, Vol. 20, p. 58-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we examine the notion that music in public space could be understood in terms of ethical potential, where new sensibilities for thinking, feeling, seeing and being with others might be imagined and practiced. We do this by considering how musical performances by migrants impact on inclusive forms of place (re-)making, affective enactments of public space and emotional accounts of belonging and 'the other'. The paper draws on an ethnographic exploration of South American pan flute musicians, performing music at Sergels torg, a central square in Stockholm, Sweden. Through fieldwork with a combination of qualitative techniques, including observation, interviews and sensory methods such as photography, video and recorded 'sound walks' we trace the affective aspects of encounters with busking and the impact of music on place. We highlight the ethical potential of music in the experience of urban moments and its capacity to reconfigure space. We find that encounters with sound can produce new spaces of conviviality and inclusion; it can soothe, animate and soften urban spaces. However, a positive encounter with difference through sound depends on a favourable social, physical and temporal context, and because busking serves to make marginalised voices heard (both literally and metaphorically), it can be experienced as troubling for precisely this reason. Thus, we need to take into account the full complexity of the dynamics between sound and place, in considering this relationship as a novel window to the ethical potential of the urban encounter.

    The pan flute musicians at Sergels torg: between global flows and specificities of place2014In: Researching and representing mobilities: transdisciplinary encounters / [ed] Lesley Murray, Sarah Upstone, Palgrave Macmillan, 2014, 1, p. 150-169Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on the relationship between music and place has highlighted the importance of music for how people perceive, feel and act in particular places. This chapter explores the performative power of representations of a group of South American indigenous pan flute musicians busking on the streets of Stockholm, Sweden, taking inspiration from a more-than-representational approach. It is a qualitative exploration of how music can both be representative of mobilities at different scales, and affect experiences of mobility in particular places through the emotions, thoughts and memories it generates. We explore the pan flute music itself as a highly mobile phenomenon and an example of the globalisation of ‘world music’, but it also emerges that the music is posited as representative of particular local place-making efforts.

    Social hållbarhet i kollektivtrafiken2017In: Metoder och verktyg för sociala nyttoberäkningar i kollektivtrafiken / [ed] Thomas Wimark, Stockholm: Kulturgeografiska institutionen, Stockholms universitet , 2017, p. 9-53Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Med skärpt fokusering på hållbar utveckling blir såväl politiskt ansvariga som akademiker allt mer sysselsatta inte enbart med infrastrukturens inverkan på ekonomi och miljö utan även dess sociala inverkan. Denna breda litteraturstudie har undersökt den sociala hållbarhetens roll i kollektivtrafikens infrastruktur. Den har siktat på att urskilja de olika komponenter i social hållbarhet som ingår i denna kontext, kvalitativa respektive kvantitativa analytiska metoder och deras krav på data samt tillämpbarheten av dessa rön i den svenska kontexten. Översikten utfördes med hjälp av indexeringstjänsten Web of Science, en kombinerad snöbollsmetod samt interna rekommendationer och analyser med hjälp av ett teoretiskt ramverk för hållbarhet anpassat från United Nations Environment Programme. Rönen ådagalade många kvantitativa tillvägagångssätt, däribland kostnads-/nyttoanalys [cost-benefit analyses (CBA)], tillämpningar av geografiska informationssystem (GIS), och jämlikhetsanalyser m.fl. Variabler för kollektivtrafik såsom tillgänglighet och rörlighet behandlades oftast tillsammans med sociala bestämningsfaktorer, liksom sociala utfallsvariabler däribland socialt utanförskap och socialt kapital. Kvalitativa infallsvinklar används däremot mer sällan i den här kontexten trots deras betydelse för att hjälpa till att fånga in användares erfarenheter och att urskilja nya sociala variabler. Utifrån dessa resultat och den rådande preferensen för kvantitativa metoder i svenska analyser av kollektivtrafik rekommenderar författarna mera fokus på de sociala utfallen av kollektivtrafikens infrastruktur genom att använda en blandning av kvantitativa och kvalitativa infallsvinklar.

    ‘I would much rather be still here and travel in time’: The intertwinedness of mobility and stillness in cottage living2013In: Fennia, E-ISSN 1798-5617, Vol. 191, no 2, p. 92-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     Along with urbanisation and modernisation, the use of second homes has increased in the Western world. This can be seen as part of the increasing mobility of people in society, but also as part of a search for stillness and escape from modern urban society. Recently, scholars in geography and other disciplines have argued that mobility and fixity are two sides of the same coin. This paper aims to explore the complex, manifold and often paradoxical relationship between mobility and immobility in practices of dwelling and seeking stillness in a highly mobile society. It elaborates on how mobility and stillness, in both space and time, are intertwined and mutually influence each other by analysing second home usage of old cottages that formally were dwelling houses of poor tenant smallholdings in Sweden. How do mobility and stillness exist and interact at these cottages and what parts do the cottages themselves have in this? This is studied through interviews with cottage users regarding their daily life practices and encounters with history and materiality at the cottages. These cottages are easily thought of as places of immobility where time has stood still. However, the paper shows that these cottages are places that continuously emerge through entanglements of mobility and stillness and of present and past times. The practices and experiences of mobility and stillness at the cottage are much integrated in and directed by the cottages’ specific geography, history and materiality, and the activities and thinking of their users because of these characteristics. The users go to the cottage to be at a place where they, with the help of the preserved materiality and history of the cottages, can feel rooted and still. At the same time the cottages offer imaginary time travels and experiences of other times and lifestyles.

    My Goodness, My Heritage! Constructing Good Heritage in the Irish Economic Crisis2015In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 7, p. 285-306Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2008, the Republic of Ireland entered a severe financial crisis partly as a part of the global economic crisis. Since then, it has seen large raises in income taxes and cuts in state spending on health, welfare, education and on heritage, which has suffered relatively large cuts. This implies a need for rethinking choices and prioritisations to cope with the changing circumstances. Across Europe, the effects of the crisis on heritage, or the whole cultural sector, have yet mostly been highlighted in general or supposed terms rather than empirically analysed. But what actually happens to how heritage is conceptualised in times of crisis? Inspired by Critical Discourse Analysis, this paper explores representation of and argumentation for heritage in Irish state heritage policies pre and post the recession 2008. Much concerns regarding heritage management are discursively shaped. Policies, stating the authorised viewpoint, are thus key in the construction of heritage and its values in society. Recently, research has highlighted a shift towards more instrumentality in cultural policy due to wider societal changes. A crisis could influence such development. The analysis departs from an often-stated notion of heritage as a part of the Irish national recovery, but what does that imply? Focus is therefore put on how different representations of heritage and its values are present, argued for and compete in a situation with increasing competition regarding relevance and support. The paper shows how heritage matters are refocused, streamlined and packaged as productive, good-for-all, unproblematic and decomplexified in order to be perceived and valued as part of the national recovery. This includes privileging certain instrumental values, foremost economic, by means of specificity, space and quantification, while heritage’s contribution to social life, education or health, although often mentioned, are downplayed by being expressed in much more vague terms.

    Reverberations of a Crisis: The Practical and Ideological Reworkings of Irish State Heritage Work in Economic Crisis and Austerity2016In: Heritage & Society, ISSN 2159-032X, E-ISSN 2159-0338, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 57-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2008 the Republic of Ireland entered an economic crisis as part of the global economic crisis. It was met with austerity measures, and Ireland has since experienced large cuts in state spending on health, education, and heritage. Across Europe, the effects of the crisis on heritage have mostly been highlighted in general or supposed terms rather than empirically analyzed. Based on interviews with state and non-state actors in the heritage sector, this paper investigates the effects of the economic crisis and austerity within Irish official heritage management. The crisis has brought changes to the ways heritage is conceptualised and dealt with from a state perspective. These changes are important to track because one key part of the continuous process of production of heritage and its values in society is the ways state heritage management frames and works with heritage. The analysis focuses on four implications: budget cuts; how the crisis creates uncertainty, pauses, and short-termism; an increasing instrumentalization of heritage; and an increasing involvement and dependency on non-state actors. Economical logics, expertise, legal liabilities, short-term emergency responses, and skills in making persuasive arguments grow in importance, while long-term strategies and projects that may not lead to measurable revenues in terms of tourism or employment get put aside. The study opens up critical questions of (in)equality and changing influences within heritage management, of what and who is, should, and can be included in and supported by state heritage management, and by which logic.

    The importance of an old rural cottage: media representation and construction of a national idyll in post-war Sweden2014In: Journal of Rural Studies, ISSN 0743-0167, E-ISSN 1873-1392, Vol. 36, p. 33-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Second-homes are vital parts of the encountering of the rural in the Western World. The way they are perceived in society is important to explore as it can influence how and by whom this part of the rural is used. This paper explores the media construction of a specific type of second-homes in Sweden; cottages that since the 1950s have transformed from poor smallholdings to beloved second-homes. Besides being lived spaces, these cottages have become well known features of rural Sweden, symbols of national identity and described by media as rural idylls. They can be seen as having a cultural centrality in the revaluation of rurality and the shift towards post-productivist countryside in Sweden. But how could this type of humble cottage become so significant and what does the image of it really imply? This is studied through a discourse analysis of the representation of these cottages in a monthly home magazine from 1956 to 2008 with a particular interest in the production and naturalisation of them as important rural artefacts and national symbols. The paper discusses how material and immaterial dimensions have interacted in this construction process as well as possible social implications of the representations. Conclusively, the representations construct a restricted image of cottages and their users and of why cottages are important and should be taken care of. These representations are building on values, ideas and norms embedded in a highlighted and particular materiality which makes these seem innocent, natural and common sense. By exploring this the paper contributes to the wider inquiry into the discursive construction of the rural where seemingly innocent and natural ways of representing places, people and artefacts can produce strong and excluding norms and values regarding the rural and its users and uses.

    Torpen är döda. Länge leve torpen!: Hembygdsrörelsens engagemang för torp i efterkrigstidens Sverige2012In: Bebyggelsehistorisk tidskrift, ISSN 0349-2834, no 64, p. 73-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under efterkrigstiden började de svenska torpen, som sedan senare delen av 1800-talet alltmer betraktats som en omodern form av småbruk och lämnats för arbeten i de växande städerna och industrierna, bli intressanta utanför jordbruket, exempelvis inom hembygdsrörelsen. Den här artikeln syftar till att undersöka det stora torpintresse som funnits inom hembygdsrörelsen sedan 1960-talet och sätta in detta intresse i en samhällskontext för att förstå varför torpen kunde bli ett av rörelsens flaggskepp. Särskilt fokus riktas mot betydelsen av torpens materiella egenskaper i detta. Genom en diskursanalysinfluerad studie av både lokala hembygdsföreningars torpinventeringar och dokument från rörelsens centrala organ diskuterar artikeln hur engagemanget i torp tagit sig uttryck, vad det baserats på och vilka konsekvenser det kan ha fått. En slutsats är att rörelsens torparbete präglats av en föreställning om de goda torparna och de dåliga torpen. Torpen var hem för redigt folk som genom slit och försakelse byggt upp Välfärdssverige vilket skapade känslor av respekt och stolthet hos rörelsen. Därför blev torpen betydelsefulla att uppmärksamma och bevara, både kognitivt och materiellt. Engagemanget med torp, som alla de hundratals inventeringstexter som producerats, har resulterat i att vissa värden och egenskaper inbäddats eller förstärkts i torpen. Intresset för torp har med tiden blivit naturaliserat: de ska intresseras för och bevaras. Att många torp försvunnit gjorde dem än viktigare att lyfta fram. Rörelsens engagemang har fokuserat på att dokumentera och synliggöra det fysiska i torpens existens och lärdomarna som finns i de egna upplevelserna torpmiljöerna framhävs ofta. Genom inventeringarna och besök på torpplatser kunde en tidsresa starta, där chanser gavs att erfara andra tider och ta med sig erfarenheterna tillbaka till dagens samhälle. Analysen framhåller betydelsen av kopplingen mellan efterkrigstidens tidsanda med arbetarrörelsens skördetid och materiell och välfärdsmässig välgång i landet å ena sidan och engagemanget i torpen, dessa boplatser som var starkt förknippade med materiell fattigdom, enkelhet och förfall, å andra sidan. Intresset för torpen kan ses som en del av ett ökat folkligt intresse för kulturarvet. Om man utgår från vilka som initierat, styrt och utfört torpinventeringarna så blir detta underifrånperspektiv emellertid ett tillbakablickande som framförallt kom från ett uppifrån- och utifrånperspektiv kring liven på torpen.

    Torpets transformationer: Materialitet, representation och praktik från år 1850 till 20102011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of the croft (Sw. torp) is complex. From the 17th century crofts were small tenant holdings on a farm or estate. Along with changes in society since c. 1850, they were converted into freehold farms, second homes or left to ruins. They acquired new functional, social and symbolic values and today the croft is mostly associated with a rural idyll. The aim of the thesis is to study the transformations of the croft since1850 in order to understand how and why it has survived as a place and acquired the meanings it has. Thus the construction of place is in centre of attention. This process is approached from three angles: the materiality of the croft, ideas and representations of it and various practices relating to it. This is studied through historical documents and maps, text analysis and interviews, in part through three case studies in Uppland, Småland and Värmland. The main conclusions are that great changes notwithstanding, there are continuities in all three dimensions of the croft. This combination of inertia and change is central to how and why the croft has survived. The study also shows the importance of timing between available rural dwellings and a demand for such dwellings. Another conclusion is that the idealisation of the croft is old and not only a present day phenomena. Further, the different dimensions of the croft and the relations which can be found between them have been important for the transformation and survival of the croft. The materiality, immateriality and practices of the croft in the past remain parts of what constitutes it today, together with those dimensions in the present. The study shows the possibilities inherent in focusing on the intertwining of various dimensions and periods of time for the understanding of the processes of place construction.

    Resmönster, resvanor och reseupplevelser bland ungdomar i Stockholms län2017In: Metoder och verktyg för sociala nyttoberäkningar i kollektivtrafiken / [ed] Thomas Wimark, Stockholm: Kulturgeografiska institutionen, Stockholms universitet , 2017, p. 87-113Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Unga är en grupp som till stora delar är beroende av en väl fungerande kollektivtrafik för sitt vardagliga resande och för sin möjlighet att delta i samhällets olika sfärer. I detta kapitel undersöker vi kollektivtrafiken med specifik fokus på ungdomars resande, och särskilt ungdomar i mer utsatta områden i Stockholms län. Studien syftar till att förstå hur dessa unga använder sig av, tänker kring och upplever kollektivtrafiken. Studien har också ett metodmässigt syfte, att testa hur kvalitativa angreppssätt kan användas för att undersöka kollektivtrafikens sociala nytta och betydelse för samhället. Studien baseras på semistrukturerade intervjuer med 27 ungdomar i åldrarna 16-19 på två gymnasieskolor i Haninge respektive Hallunda. I studien beskriver ungdomarna ett geografiskt samlat resande kring framförallt hemmet och skolan, samt platser för träning, shopping och umgänge med vänner. De tycks nöjda med kollektivtrafikens befintliga nät. Upplevelserna mellan olika trafikslag skiljer sig dock åt. Här synliggörs hur kollektivtrafiken kan vara såväl möjliggörande (avlastande) som begränsande (tyngande) i vardagen. Bussen upplevs som lugn, trygg, mysig, trång och tidskrävande. Tunnelbanan är snabb, smidig men även stressig, obehaglig och med mycket folk. Materialet visar vissa skillnader mellan killar och tjejer. Exempelvis uppskattar tjejerna bussen mer än tunnelbanan som delvis upplevs som obehaglig och otrygg. Kvalitativa studier kring reseupplevelserna är viktiga för att identifiera både de positiva och de negativa betydelser som kollektivtrafiken kan ha. Detta är ett steg i arbetet med utmaningen att få ungdomar att fortsätta att uppskatta och använda kollektivtrafik även efter att de blir äldre och når körkortsåldern.
