    A FRAGMENTED DIASPORA: Iranians in Sweden2018Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 8, nr 2, s. 73-81Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The notion of diaspora generally indicates achievements: creating a home outside the homeland, entrepreneurship, the establishment of local and global networks, new organisations, media and spatial as well as social mobility. In studies of Iranian diaspora, a rosy picture of 'super successful' Iranians has often obscured other aspects of the diaspora - failure, conflicts, internal exclusion and fragmentation of the group along various lines, such as ideologies, class, gender, local identification and cause of migration. Through ethnographic vignettes of the Iranian migrants in Sweden, this article demonstrates the segmentation, hybridity and complexity of the experiences of the diaspora. Avoiding the language of generalisation and by focussing instead on particular histories and individual circumstances, it reveals the diversity, disintegration and contradictions within what has been assumed to be a homogeneous and static diaspora.

    AFTER POLITICAL ECOLOGY2018Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 34, nr 2, s. 22-24Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This book review article probes present anthropological engagement with the environment through the prism of political ecology, placing political ecology in conversation with newer work in environmnetal anthropology. In situating this conversation, the reviewer draws on four recent anthropological monographs that, in one way or another, deal with aspects of nature'. The four monographs are Tania Murray Li's (2014) Land's end: Capitalist relations on an indigenous frontier; Marianne Elisabeth Lien's (2015) Becoming salmon: Aquaculture and the domestication of fish; Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing's (2015) The mushroom at the end of the world: On the possibility of life in capitalist ruin; and, lastly, Marisol de la Cadena's (2015) Earth beings: Ecologies of practice across Andean worlds. As I suggest, political ecology requires a radical remake, perhaps a political ecology 2.0, which brings in nature in a new way and makes the category of the political more inclusive.

    Den (själv)medvetna konsumenten: Politisk konsumtion och studenters strävan efter erkännande2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur åtta studenter som identifierar sig själva som medvetna konsumenter använder politisk konsumtion som strategi för att söka erkännande inför sig själv och andra. Studien tar särskild hjälp av teoretiska begrepp konstruerade av Pierre Bourdieu. Metoden som används för datainsamling är semistrukturerade intervjuer. Utifrån detta syfte har följande frågeställningar formulerats: Vilka strategier använder åtta studenter för att söka erkännande genom politisk konsumtion? Vilka blir konsekvenserna av dessa strategier och hur skiljer de sig mellan männen och kvinnorna i studien?

    Tidigare forskning visar att hur mycket av en persons konsumtion som är politisk beror på position och roll i samhället. Framförallt kvinnor och de med akademisk utbildning tenderar att vara de största politiska konsumentgrupperna. Vidare vet vi att Sverige internationellt sett har relativt hög politisk konsumtion. Många upplever att det är svårt att göra rätt inför sig själva och inför samhället i relation till politisk konsumtion. Genom Bourdieus teoretiska perspektiv där både aktören och strukturen fångas in i begreppet habitus har vi undersökt hur åtta studenter i Stockholm hanterar frågor om rätt och fel i relation till politisk konsumtion. Resultat och analys presenteras utifrån följande teman: Att konsumera politiskt; Kunskapskapital; Konstruktionen av ett självreflexivt habitus. De två första temana beskriver strategier för att nå erkännande, det vill säga ackumulera vad Bourdieu kallar symboliskt kapital, det sista temat ämnar till att beskriva aspekter och konsekvenser av respondenternas habitus utifrån dissonans, ambivalens och skam. Slutligen pekar studien på en skillnad i hur män och kvinnor känner kring politisk konsumtion. Denna studie är explorativ och uppmuntrar till vidare studier om såväl studenter som andra samhällsgruppers relation till politisk konsumtion.

    Etniska hierarkier och (icke-)representation: Partikandidater med migrationsbakgrund vid svenska valet 20142018Ingår i: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 55, nr 2-3, s. 317-339Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Ethnic hierarchies and (non)representation. Party candidates with migration background in the general election of 2014This paper analyses the extent to which individuals with migration background were appointed and elected into different levels of public decision-making bodies in the latest Swedish general election (2014). Individuals of migration background refers in this study to those born abroad or born in Sweden with two foreign-born parents. Data for this study is taken from Statistics Sweden's register of candidates elected in municipal, county and national parliamentary elections in 2014, supplemented by information from other Statistics Sweden's registers. The results demonstrate that: (a) individuals with a migration background are severely underrepresented in the Swedish decision-making bodies; (b) even in cases when individuals with a migration background are nominated on the party lists, they have less of a chance of being elected compared to native candidates. (c) The dominant resource theory cannot explain the underrepresentation of the stigmatized migrant groups and their descendants, and finally; (d) the results indicate some support to the hypothesis about the importance of access to social networks in order to be nominated and elected.

    Feeling Across Distance: Transnational Migration, Emotions, and Family Life Between Bolivia and Spain2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    What are the relational dynamics of family life as it is lived across vast distances and over time? What underpins these relations, practices, and experiences of being apart and yet together? Based on a long-term multi-sited fieldwork carried out in Spain and Bolivia from 2013 to 2015, this study sets out to address these questions by investigating caring practices, mediated connections, (non)material exchanges, and lived experiences of “doing” and “feeling” family across borders. It conveys the story of ten families divided between Madrid and the Bolivian urban areas of Cochabamba, Sucre, and Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Taking as a point of departure the encounters with middle-aged women who migrated to Spain in the early 2000s, the thesis moves back and forth between “here” and “there” to provide a polyphonic account of family relationships as they are sustained, enacted, and experienced by both those who leave and those who stay. It does so by exploring the transnational provision of care, the routines of keeping in touch, the exchange of remittances and material goods, as well as the interplay of these practices with the management of emotions and the circulation of affects. The term “affective maps” is employed here as a concept to capture the myriad of relatives taking part in these connections, in that it points out how these are strongly interdependent relationships through which people have the capacity to affect and to be affected by one another across distance. More specifically, this study demonstrates how the various ways of dealing with transnational family life are constantly shaped by migration regimes, restrictive policies, and global inequalities, on the one hand, and by power social relations, gender and generational roles, and life-course stages, on the other. To illuminate the dynamics at play, the notion of “feel-work” is introduced as a tuned-in ethnographic practice that simultaneously engages the body and the mind, reasoning and feeling. This study is thus a multi-sited ethnography contributing further knowledge into emotions and affects in human mobility, while it consistently uses emotions and affects as methodological and epistemological tools. The thesis argues that family members recreate a sense of “closeness” and maintain their emotional connection despite not being physically together nor seeing each other over long periods of absence. Ultimately, in grappling with the affective dimension of family relationships in the distinct context of current Bolivia-to-Spain migration, this thesis aims to shed some light on the emotional and the corporeal as constitutive aspects of the ethnographic endeavor.

    Geographies of difference: Explorations in Northeast Indian Studies2018Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This book rethinks Northeast India as a lived space, a centre of interconnections and unfolding histories, instead of an isolated periphery. Questioning dominant tropes and assumptions around the Northeast, it examines socio-political and historical processes, border issues, the role of the state, displacement and development, debates over natural resources, violence, notions of body and belonging, movements, tensions and relations, and strategies, struggles and narratives that frame discussions on the region.

    Godmorgon, Sverige!: Projektet Rehabarenan - en socialantropologisk analys2018Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur genomförs insatsen Rehabarenan i förhållande till sina uppsatta mål? Det är huvudfrågan bakom denna rapport som presenterar resultat från en begränsad antropologisk studie av projektet Rehabarenan i Södertälje, en arbetsmarknadspolitisk insats för ”arbetsträning, rehabilitering och integration” eller, med observatörens utifrånblick, ett socialisationsprojekt. På Rehabarenan tränas ungdomar, unga vuxna och medelålders män och kvinnor till att bli förment bättre fungerande samhällsindivider med närmare till egenförsörjning än bidragsdito. Observationer och intervjuer från en femveckors fältstudie på Torekällbergets friluftsmuseum, där projektet är förlagt, ger etnografiska inblickar i Rehabarenans organisering, deltagarnas vardag och maktförhållandena mellan museets olika yrkesgrupper. Dessa inblickar ställs analytiskt mot projektets uppsatta mål och slutsatser dras om uppfyllelse eller inte av dessa. En prekär fråga ställs i rapporten om vems ”behov” som Rehabarenan i första hand tillgodoser. Rapporten efterlyser en större klarhet och detaljrikedom om projektets bakomliggande intentioner och mål för att undvika att deltagarna efter sin tid på Rehabarenan istället för att komma vidare mot arbetsmarknaden fastnar eller snurrar runt i myndigheternas system.

    Guiden till Spaniensverige: Diaspora, integration och transnationalitet bland svenska föreningar i södra Spanien2018Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur blir de svenska migranterna i södra Spanien en livsstilsdiaspora? Huvudaktören i denna bok är de stora nordiska sociala föreningarna i södra Spanien och de verksamheter de utvecklar för att främja svenskarnas sammanhållning. Studien visar att föreningarna går i spetsen för en diasporisk mobilisering av en svensk gemenskap. Detta görs genom att erbjuda de svenska migranterna sociala arenor, innehållsrika aktiviteter och service av olika slag. Föreningarna kan på så sätt underlätta migranternas förverkligande av sina livsstilsprojekt samtidigt som de också snitslar en väg in i Spaniensverige. Boken handlar om hur diasporagemenskap görs genom en mobilisering kring livsstilsprojektet där ålder, klass och transnationalitet är viktiga ingredienser.

    I Don't Make Coffee for My Husband in the Morning: Gender and Precarious Life among Home-based Workers in the Philippines2018Ingår i: Anthropological Quarterly, ISSN 0003-5491, E-ISSN 1534-1518, Vol. 91, nr 1, s. 365-391Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is about precariousness of work and shifting gender roles among Filipina home-based workers, who labor from or nearby their homes either as industrial homeworkers working for an employer, or as own-account laborers sometimes referred to as the self-employed. It demonstrates how gender and the globalization of production are formed, negotiated, and challenged by people through their localized ideas and practices. Focusing on the persons who have mobilized through Patamaba and Homenet Southeast Asia, I examine the relation between work and life, or workplace and home, which for a long time has involved a spatial division of gender roles that increasingly have been called into question. At the center of the analysis are the shrinking national labor market and growing spatial mobility of women due to their mobilization for the rights of the home-based workers. Because of this changing socio-economic environment, people's experiences of labor are much more complex than the binary gender discourses, as they constantly alternate between home and work, and reproduction and production, as well as the private and political. Finally, I suggest that the growing precarization of life must be approached from a gender viewpoint, which often has been bypassed in the scholarly debate.

    "I'm not a nationalist but"...: On mobilisation and identity formation of the Scottish independence movement2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the mobilisation and identity formation of the Scottish independence movement post-referendum. By analysing arguments, emotions and actions in support for independence, I aim to discuss how the movement make use of cultural perspectives on history for continuous mobilisation. The study focuses on the members of the umbrella organisation of Yes Scotland, which is a diverse network of activist and party-political groups. To understand the movement, I have made use of a political and active approach such as participating in meetings and at demonstrations. Importantly, while I acknowledge how the Scottish independence movement navigates within a discourse of nationalism because of its nationalist character, I argue that the movement mainly make use of an alternative ideology. This ideology is tied to historical narratives which are remade in present forms and take several expressions. For instance, I claim that this ideology generates the practice of international solidarity as well as a specific identity which is constructed and reproduced for one specific political project: to achieve Scottish independence. This thesis is a contribution to the study of social movements, as well as it provides understanding of reasoning beyond and within nationalism.

    Openness as Political Culture: The Arab Spring and the Jordanian Protest Movements2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is an exploration of the origins of the Arab Spring in Jordan and across the region. Based on ethnographic fieldwork among the leadership of the Jordanian protest movements, it suggests a new way of understanding why these movements fell apart. A recurrent theme in accounts of the political movements that emerged in Jordan and the Arab world more generally in 2011 is that the unity that initially appeared on streets and squares never transformed into a viable coalition but instead dissolved. A common way to understand why the Arab Spring’s promise of a less authoritarian society was not fulfilled is to look at the center of a political system and explain why it did not become more democratic. These explanations depend on an alternative that we know only through our counterfactual imagination: a united opposition capable of bringing about a democratic system. Instead of imagining a united opposition and explaining why it was not realized, the thesis starts with the fact that the Jordanian opposition was deeply fragmented, but that there were attempts to counter this fragmentation by coordinating and specifying its demands. These attempts fell apart due to something more general than ideological, ethnic or religious divisions within the Jordanian opposition. They were based on a way of conducting politics that was uncommon among the leadership of the protest movements as well as among their opponents. These attempts were characterized by an emphasis on political ideas and programs rather than patronage and by an orientation toward political dialogue, which some Jordanians described in terms of “infitāḥ” (openness) and contrasted with a more polemical form of politics. This ethnographic study puts this more unusual form of politics into sharper relief and shows how it was rooted in political practices and values as well as comparable types of education and social life. This allows us to see how democratization is a movement that is not only political but also cultural, which takes shape in political activism, education and social life.

    Paradoxes of Erasure: Palestinian Memory and the Politics of Forgetting in Post-Dictatorship Chile2018Ingår i: Interventions: International Journal of Postcolonial Studies, ISSN 1369-801X, E-ISSN 1469-929X, Vol. 20, nr 5, s. 651-665Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I explore the relationship between diasporic Palestinian memory and the politics of forgetting in post-dictatorship Chile. Drawing on ethnographic material from long-term fieldwork in Santiago, I argue that dual processes of remembrance and forgetting are central to a diasporic Palestinian politics that hinges on ideas of resistance and that always refers to the ongoing struggle of the Palestinian people, but that is also located within something of a memory void with regards to the recent Chilean past. The essay points to the paradoxical ways in which Palestinian-Chilean remembrance aiming to counter attempts at negation and erasure elsewhere often entails a compliance with the symbolic violence of a wider-reaching politics of oblivion in the Chilean era of post-dictatorship. By taking such an approach, I seek to nuance our understanding of the political dynamics of memory and to highlight the analytical potential in approaching diasporic practices at the intersection between local context and transnational points of reference.

    Reassembling Indonesian Migration: Biometric Technology and the Licensing of Informal Labour Brokers2018Ingår i: Ethnos, ISSN 0014-1844, E-ISSN 1469-588X, Vol. 83, nr 5, s. 832-849Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article takes as its starting point the Indonesian government's attempt to license informal brokers - field agents, or petugas lapangan - who recruit migrant workers that are sent to destinations across Asia and the Middle East. The licensing programme utilises biometric fingerprint technology in order to reinforce the boundaries of the Indonesian migration assemblage through the rearticulation of the category of the broker. The article argues that this programme and the attempt to license informal brokers through technology should be conceptualised not strictly in relation to the securitisation of migration, nor as a response to fragmentation in the wake of neoliberalisation, but more broadly in relation to concerns with regulating brokers that lead back to the Dutch colonial era.

    Refugee Protections from Below: Smuggling in the Eritrea-Ethiopia Context2018Ingår i: The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, ISSN 0002-7162, E-ISSN 1552-3349, Vol. 676, nr 1, s. 57-76Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an analysis of the role of human smuggling practices and of the transnational social relations of Eritrean refugees exiting and transitioning through Ethiopia. Based on two years of multisited ethnographic fieldwork, I explore how smugglers, aspiring migrants, and former migrants, settled en route and in diasporic spaces, try to minimize the risk of violence through communities of support and knowhow. In so doing, I argue that smuggling is a socially embedded collective practice that strives to facilitate safe exit and transitions of Eritrean refugees despite the criminalization of migration, the militarization of borders, and the potential and existing criminal activity along Eritrean, Sudanese, and Ethiopian migratory corridors. The facilitation of irregular transits by migrants themselves reproduces a collective system of migratory knowledge that aims to bring refugees to safetya community of knowledgein which smuggling emerges as a system of refugee protection from below.

    Small-Small: Moral Economy and the Marketspace in Northern Ghana2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past decade, the Ghanaian government has tried to include and accommodate the many people working in the so-called informal economy. This formalization process is in line with a global market-driven development discourse. The small-scale traders selling their goods from marketplaces and along the streets in major cities have been of particular interest.

    While the Ghanaian government defines these actors as working in an “informal sector” and thus beyond the formal political and economic system, it simultaneously targets them with welfare services and various policies with the purpose of including them in the creation of a modern welfare state and shaping them into moral and entrepreneurial citizens.

    In Tamale in northern Ghana, years of political neglect, violence, and structural adjustment have led to small-scale traders taking over streets, sidewalks, and infrastructure, which has created a boundless and dynamic marketspace that far exceeds the delimited and politically defined marketplaces. For the state, therefore, much of the formalization process is about restoring the control and power of public space through evictions and relocations of traders. In conjunction with the inclusive welfare services, this demonstrates the contradictions entailed in the politics of informality.

    The study is based on an ethnographic fieldwork among small-scale traders in northern Ghana with a specific interest in the events that occur at the intersection where state, market, and citizenship meet. By asking what it means to be a trader in this contradictory process of formalization, the dissertation aims to understand this transformative moment in Ghana’s political and economic history.

    In this study the emic notion of small-small is used to frame the norms of gradual progress and letting others in that define the moral economy of small-scale trade. Norms, values, and obligations generate trust and solidarity within the marketspace. But more than that, small-small produces a form of politics against an obstructive and unreliable state and it guides traders into the future by shaping dreams, aspirations, and possibilities. Situated in traders’ daily lives, work, and relationships, and through the small-small lens, this thesis investigates the underlying moralities of formalization. It describes the politics of the Ghanaian state, which in its attempt to create an inclusive welfare society, struggles to both protect the moral dynamics of small-scale trade while adhering to the norms and standards of an open liberalized economy.

    Abstract [sv]

    För att förklara detta teoretiska begrepp behöver först en distinktion göras mellan olika ”fält” i vetenskapliga fackterminologier: där finns fältbegrepp som avser empiriska studier och metoder karaktäristiska för särskilda discipliner, t.ex. biologernas fältstudier och antropologins →fältarbete; där finns också de akademiskt vardagliga användningarna av fältordet, som när antropologer, etnologer och andra talar om ”mitt fält” eller forskare i gemen och vetenskapsjournalister talar om ”forskningsfält” av allehanda slag; och där finns de specifikt teoretiska fältbegreppen. Fältteorier hittar vi inom exempelvis fysikens undersökningar av elektricitet, magnetism och gravitation; inom matematikens geometri och algebra; och inom samhällsvetenskaperna, där särskilt psykologin (socialpsykologin), sociologin och antropologin genererat fältteorier.

    Tracing Wolves: Materiality, Effect and Difference2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    As wolves are seldom seen in Scandinavia, Tracing Wolves utilises the ‘trace’ as both a theoretical and methodological tool to aid comprehension of what a wolf is and what a wolf does. Consequently, this enquiry examines human-wolf practices, such as tracking, genetic analysis, GPS tracking, hunting, and wolf necropsies, via which Scandinavian wolves in Sweden manifest. It is in this respect, through the traces wolves leave – like tracks in the snow, a steaming scat, the remains of a recent kill, GPS data or genetic material – that humans come to know wolves. Furthermore, this study also employs the ‘trace’ as a way to navigate through the complexities of material-semiotics and post-human approaches to method and theory, and contemplates rather more traditional approaches to anthropological knowledge. Accordingly, by considering the materiality of human-wolf encounters and how effects are comprehended and differences emerge, this analysis highlights that some of theses practices, aided by empathy and embodiment, facilitate a sociality that operates across species boundaries.

    World Literatures: Exploring the Cosmopolitan-Vernacular Exchange2018Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Placing itself within the burgeoning field of world literary studies, the organising principle of this book is that of an open-ended dynamic, namely the cosmopolitan-vernacular exchange.

    As an adaptable comparative fulcrum for literary studies, the notion of the cosmopolitan-vernacular exchange accommodates also highly localised literatures. In this way, it redresses what has repeatedly been identified as a weakness of the world literature paradigm, namely the one-sided focus on literature that accumulates global prestige or makes it on the Euro-American book market.

    How has the vernacular been defined historically? How is it inflected by gender? How are the poles of the vernacular and the cosmopolitan distributed spatially or stylistically in literary narratives? How are cosmopolitan domains of literature incorporated in local literary communities? What are the effects of translation on the encoding of vernacular and cosmopolitan values?

    Ranging across a dozen languages and literature from five continents, these are some of the questions that the contributions attempt to address.

    Brokers, channels, infrastructure: moving migrant labor in the Indonesian-Malaysian oil palm complex2017Ingår i: Mobilities, ISSN 1745-0101, E-ISSN 1745-011X, Vol. 12, nr 2, s. 213-226Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article problematizes the dichotomy between fluid mobility and fixed infrastructure through a case study of migrant labor recruitment from Indonesia to the Malaysian oil palm industry. Channels of low-skilled transnational migration must be understood in relation to other forms of mobility, most notably that of brokers, who move along adjacent and overlapping routes. Broker mobility is not only shaped by relatively immobile moorings, but also by more fluid moorings', notably mobile communication, low-cost airlines, and emergent social relationships. In order to understand how the migration process is arranged it is critical to pay attention to the logistical practices that make mobility possible. The article argues that broker mobility, diverse forms of moorings, and logistics come to shape a socio-technical system that can be understood in terms migration infrastructure.

    Campsite Migrants: British Caravanners and Homemaking in Benidorm2017Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 7, nr 3, s. 181-188Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on ethnographic fieldwork amongst British migrants on a Spanish Camping and caravan site, this article argues that the home is a productive entrance point for understanding the dynamics of this form of migration. Whilst campsites are planned and legally regulated as leisure spheres for mobile camping, touring caravans provide an affordable option for migrants otherwise excluded from the Spanish property market. In this article, I show how economic activities are centred on the caravan homemaking wherein mobile dwellings are transformed into - and used as - immobile living units. The making of the caravan home is furthermore central to the shaping and maintenance of social networks of support that are based on ‘handyman’ manual labour and a cash economy.

    Communicating the Unthinkable: A Psychodynamic Perspective2017Ingår i: Memory and Genocide: On What Remains and the Possibility of Representation / [ed] Fazil Moradi, Ralph Buchenhorst, Maria Six-Hohenbalken, Routledge, 2017, s. 107-121Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Experiences of genocide have often an emotionally and intellectually evasive quality which makes them difficult, and sometimes impossible, to share with others. Analyzing documentary films and academic teaching, through psychodynamic concepts of containment, trauma, and memory, two qualitatively different ways of communicating the experience of genocide are found: embodied representation and contained representation. While the first communicates the traumatic or unthinkable content of genocide, the second communicates the non-traumatic or thinkable. The author proposes that any student and scholar of needs to move between the grey opacity of genocide experience, and the clear understanding of embodied and contained representation.

    Courtroom atmospheres: Affective dynamics in court sessions of criminal matter in Vienna2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the composition of affective atmospheres, emerging in court sessions of criminal matter in Vienna. The notion of atmosphere is used to explore collective affective qualities, emerging through the interplay between affective bodies and their environment. The focus provides as analytical frame for bringing forward the workings of affect in legal procedures. From a starting point in theories of affect and atmosphere, I cast light at how the affectively charged space is both monitored and beyond control. First, I trace affect through the lens of spatial arrangements of courtrooms. I show how the architectural and interior arrangements and aesthetics of courtrooms are expedient in creating resonance between the bodies and control over the situations, while being visual and material representations of law. Second, I trace affect in the relation between the bodies that produce atmosphere and regard for the bodily capacity to affect and be affected. I consider principles of criminal procedure structuring and disciplining affective bodies in courtrooms and the juridical labour entailing work on emotions. Third, I trace affect in the dynamics and changes of affective atmosphere by showing how atmospheric changes come about and are contested through intensification and ruptures in atmosphere. I discuss the compositions of affective atmosphere in relation to discipline and control converging with bodies entering the legal setting. The ethnographic material is collected through participant observation in one hundred court sessions, as well as through interviews with people involved.

    Divers Engaging Policy—Practices of Making Water2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis I discuss how divers in Rio de Janeiro and Arraial do Cabo, Brazil, are part of a process of making water (Barnes 2014). This I do by examining the relationship between the policies of the non-governmental organization Project Aware and these divers. These policies under question concerns the growing issue of marine debris, asking divers to directly act towards a solution by removing debris, and inform about the issue. I employ the concepts habitus and the entrepreneurial self as heuristic think-tools in order to illuminate the structuring aspect of this relationship, how it affects the way policies are negotiated, embodied, and practiced in regard to society and the environment (e.g. Bourdieu 1990; Rose 1998; Gershon 2016). My argument is based on observations, interviews, and media analysis. I show how my interlocutors are engaged in making water, in hands on actions of removing debris, and in discourse making where the issue is forwarded, emphasized, and discussed. Further I illustrate the impact that local power structures hold on practices of agents (Barnes 2014; Karlsson 2015).

    En lektion i gemenskap: Ordning och (o)reda bland lärare i Malmö och Marseille2017Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna etnografiska studie tar sin utgångspunkt i ett jämförande fältarbete bland lärare på högstadieskolor i två sydligt situerade storstäder i Europa: Malmö i Sverige och Marseille i Frankrike. Studiens fokus ligger på hur lärare begripliggör och brottas med sitt uppdrag att forma och fostra ”goda” medborgare för en nationell gemenskap och sammanhållning. Genom att utforska lärarnas egna strävanden och stretanden i denna fråga belyses de idéer och praktiker som driver detta arbete framåt. Samtidigt synliggörs de vardagliga spänningar som emellanåt komplicerar lärarnas arbete. En central iakttagelse i denna studie är att lärare i både Sverige och Frankrike stundtals finner sig inneslutna i ett slags korstryck. Inpressade i detta kastas de mellan att å ena sidan eftersträva vissa på förhand fastslagna visioner och mål om gemensamt liv, å andra sidan kontinuerligt konfronteras med en oregelbunden och inte alla gånger följsam verklighet. Avhandlingen visar hur lärare handskas med detta korstryck; hur de i händelse av hinder och motstånd i sitt arbete försöker bringa ordning i vad de uppfattar och upplever som ett tillstånd av stor oreda i förhållande till sitt medborgardanande uppdrag. Sammantaget bidrar avhandlingen till ökad kunskap om lärares både levda yrkeserfarenheter och situerade praktiker i vardagen, liksom till en problematiserande diskussion om den roll och betydelse som lärare förväntar sig spela för det gemensamma livet i Sverige och Frankrike i stort.

    Abstract [en]

    This anthology is an attempt to make sense of conferences and trade fairs as phenomena in contemporary society. The authors describe how these large-scale professional gatherings have become key sites for making and negotiating both industries and individual professions. In fact, during the past few decades, conferences and trade fairs have become a significant global industry in their own right. The editors assert that large-scale professional gatherings are remarkable events that require deeper analysis and scholarly attention.

    Abstract [sv]

    En grundtanke bakom föreliggande uppdatering av ”Nyckelbegrepp” är att fortsättningsvis se det som ett dokument under kontinuerlig utveckling. Ytterligare uppdaterade utgåvor kommer att publiceras i anslutning till nya läsår och terminer vid Stockholms universitet. De sjutton nya och reviderade nyckelbegrepp som publiceras i och med denna, 2017 års upplaga, smyger sig in bland den majoritet begrepp som finns kvar i texten från 1983. Vissa begreppsartiklar författade i 1980-talets början är omisskännligt daterade. Mycket har hänt sedan dess inom antropologin, samhällsvetenskapen och inte minst den omgivande värld som vi har i uppgift att söka förstå och förklara. En del av dessa begreppsartiklar kommer att ersättas av uppdaterade texter. Andra kommer att stå kvar enligt principen att hellre än att gallras ut finnas tillgängliga i studentpedagogiskt syfte eftersom de har ett uppenbart begrepps- och ämneshistoriskt värde.

    Abstract [sv]

    HABITUS (latin, ”vana” och ”utseende”; etymologiskt härlett från habere: att ha, hålla, äga). Begreppet habitus tillämpas inom flera vetenskapliga discipliner (botanik, medicin, zoologi) och definieras som samhällsveten-skapligt begrepp kort som: system av varaktiga och överförbara dispositioner att varsebli, värdera och handla. Genom att betona praktisk kunskap –praktik – i form av invanda och förkroppsligade handlingsmönster, utgör habitusbegreppet ett alternativ till handlingsteorier grundade på människors (i huvudsak) medvetna, intentionella och målrationella handlande (se →agens; →aktör; →interaktion).

    “It starts to burn a little”: Intergenerational Transmission of Experiences of War within a Bosnian Family in Sweden2017Ingår i: Oral History Forum, ISSN 1482-5872, nr 37Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This study builds on recent findings that emotions are crucial to the transmission of experiences of mass political violence between generations. In such work, the familial setting, as distinct from the individual psychological domain or collective sociocultural contexts, has been receiving increasing scholarly attention. Drawing on a larger project on the families formed by Bosnians who moved to Sweden during the 1990s war, this article develops a new method to analyze the interfamilial dynamics of communicating meanings. This method combines analysis of the emotions with which participants characterize certain facts – whether in semi-structured interviews or in children’s drawings – with the dynamic reflexivity common to both participant observation and psychotherapy. The analysis demonstrates how certain facts and feelings may be transmitted unchanged, while others become transformed or are lost in the process of intergenerational transmission.

The context is the current process of acquiring land private deeds, which even though began several years ago, in the region, has been speeded-upby the current plans to build an international airport closed to the village. We will discuss how the emergence of a tourist attraction (El Mirador) and the consequent formation of a female handicraf tassociation has affected the gender configurations of the village and helped to raise women’s political participation.

    Migration infrastructures and the production of migrant mobilities2017Ingår i: Mobilities, ISSN 1745-0101, E-ISSN 1745-011X, Vol. 12, nr 2, s. 167-174Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the proclamation of a mobility turn in the 2000s, scholars have populated the field with invaluable insights on what it means to move, and what the politics of movement are. One particularly useful thread revolves around the issue of infrastructures, which have generally been taken to mean the manifest forms of moorings and fixities that help order and give shape to mobilities. Yet, while significant inroads have been made in delineating the morphologies of transport infrastructures, mobilities research has been relatively reticent about the organisational structures, orders and arrangements that give rise to another key mobile phenomenon of our time international migration. In this editorial introduction, we lay down some groundwork on the productive and political nature of infrastructures that likewise affect and inform the way (im)mobilities are contingently created and parsed in migration. Looking through the prism of East and Southeast Asia and its migration infrastructures, we take advantage of the new' infrastructural configurations in an emerging empirical context to point to some directions by which mobilities researchers can more rigorously interrogate migration' as another socially meaningful and specific form of mobility that exceeds a mere displacement of people or change in national domicile.

    North-Europeans in Spain: Practices of community in the context of migration, mobility and transnationalism2017Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 7, nr 3, s. 133-138Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this special issue is the migration of North-Europeans to the Spanish coastal areas which are known to be tourist destinations. This is a kind of mobility that most commonly has been conceptualised as Lifestyle Migration (cf. Benson & O’Reilly 2009a, 2009b). The concept of lifestyle migration has been developed and widely employed as a way of thinking about mainly relatively affluent and relatively privileged forms of migration around the world. The authors of this special issue are moving away from the view of Lifestyle Migrants as a distinct category of migrant, and away from an emphasis on fluid migration forms in the context of privilege. Here, instead we focus on the human-being-ness of all migrations, the ubiquitous search for community and belonging, and the work of inhabitance (Ahmed et al 2003: 1). We also draw attention to the new structures or sedimented forms of social life that emerge from this work of inhabitance. And we also draw attention to the lack of actual privilege for some of these supposedly privileged migrants. In this special issue, we explore the processes of settlement, belonging and home-making for Lifestyle Migrants that are evident in all migration trends (Walsh & Näre 2016). We wish to emphasise that, although Lifestyle Migrants have tended to be treated as a specific type or category of migrant, they are indeed migrants, just as refugees, asylum seekers, labour migrants, and returnee migrants are migrants. Similar processes are at play here even though theconditions of migration might differ. The people who moved to the coastal areas of southern Spain as permanent residents, seasonal visitors and long-stayers are as much mobile human beings as a category of Lifestyle Migrants. So, in this special issue, rather than focus on what is unique about Lifestyle Migration, we examine in depth the social life, the community makings and the everyday realities of British and Swedish lifestyle migrants as examples of global and diverse migrations. We hope the debates and empirical evidence presented here will thus contribute to a richer understanding of the processes of migration in the context of diverse conditions. Further, having been often subjected to an emphasis on fluidity, mobility, and flux (e.g., Cohen 2015), the papers in this special issue draw more attention than previously to the sedimented practices and outcomes of these migrations. The work that the migrants put into community, belonging, routines, patterns, and means of coping and living in everyday life leads to new forms of community, new ways of living, and new sedimented practices that, in turn, shape future lives and practices (cf. O’Reilly 2012).

    Not for me: Exclusion and self-exclusion from democracy2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Disinterest and feelings of alienation from politics keep many citizens away from active participation in the democratic process. Based on interviews with inhabitants in Skogås, a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden, and on participant observation at local meeting places, this thesis explores various aspects that shape people’s willingness and ability to exert power in the democratic political system, and identifies the political culture as well as personal encounters with fellow inhabitants and political representatives as two key factors. The study presents the perspectives of various inhabitants - teenagers, single moms, senior citizens, local leaders of associations and other locals with different backgrounds and lifestyles - as well as places and practices that foster political interest, know-how and solidarity, such as a tenants union and a dog park started by local dog-owners. Because politics is often studied through influential and organized agents such as activist groups and public officials, this study intends to offer an alternative approach by examining politics from the point of view of ‘ordinary citizens’ and their immediate vicinity.

    Performance at the Edge of Apocalypse: An ethnographic study of collective identity construction in a neo-nationalist social movement in Sweden2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In several countries of the Global North, right-wing parties are successfully mobilizing public support, influencing political debates and introducing arguments and rhetorics that draw on xenophobia, populism and ethnocentrism, ostensibly with a purpose to amplify the “national order of things” (Malkki 1992). This thesis addresses this development by providing an ethnography, based fieldwork, of the Swedish social movement Folkets Demonstration, which arranges anti-government manifestations on squares most usually in Stockholm. Drawing on classical theories on performance by Victor Turner and Erving Goffman, I investigate how the demonstrations of the movement facilitate the construction of a collective identity of “the people”, which also includes exploring the world view of the demonstrators.

    As I argue, through the socio-emotionality of the demonstrations, the movement conducts a cultural performance of national cohesion vis-à-vis the Swedish national community, cosmologically perceived as on the edge of an apocalypse due to immigration and the alleged cosmopolitanist agenda of the government. In addition, I argue that the demonstrations can be understood as strategically managed towards idealized performances of democracy. Hence, the demonstrations can be considered regressive-utopian performances of a national-democratic community, furthermore embedded in a polarization between “the people” and “the elite” and through which the collective identity of “the people” is constructed.

    Practicing creativity: Landscape architects make future Stockholm2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Green urban spaces are a vigorous part in cities development, all over the world (Swanwick, Dunnet, & Wooley, 2003). These spaces are persistently constructed and negotiated over a creative process, which includes a network of actors, such as clients, designers, constructors, and users. This thesis addresses this process - with a case study of landscape architects in Stockholm, and their practice of creativity. The landscape architects present one group of actors involved in the process, where they design urban spaces for the future through their creative work. It begins with a mental image, an idea, and ends with a built site, a designed space.

    In reference to practice theory (Ortner, 1984 and 2006) and the biosocial becomings approach (Ingold, 2013), I analyze how creativity as a practice is socially produced by history, culture and power, through the biosocial growth of the creative agent, the landscape architect. Referring to Hallam and Ingold ́s definition (2007, p. 3), I understand creative practice as an improvisational process. I argue that creativity is accumulated, i.e. a becoming practice amongst becoming creative agents. While investigating the practice of creativity through a traditional participant observation, I primarily focus on sounds, where I listen to the practice, and use it as a method of collecting empirical data. With that method, I enrich the registration of sensor impressions (Borneman & Hammoudi, 2009, p. 19) during my fieldwork, providing a sonic dimension to the knowledge of creative practice amongst landscape architects.
