    Att bli och att vara framgångsrik musiker – socialisation och sortering genom livet2020In: Educare - Vetenskapliga skrifter, ISSN 1653-1868, no 1, p. 82-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article concerns learning, socialization and social sorting among successful musicians. The aim is to understand and problematize not only what it means to become a classical musician but also what it entails to be a successful classical musician. In what ways are musicians socialized through life? What approaches are formed among musicians, and what is the meaning of these when it comes to performance of work? Are their specific arenas and rituals of particular importance, when it comes to socializing and sorting among musicians? Interviews and documents about twelve musicians have been analyzed with the aid of Bourdieusian concepts, for example, practical sense and habitus, and research on elitist practices within music, arts and sports. The results indicate that there is a typical and similar career path for successful musicians, where young musicians are socialized into considering their careers in music as natural and given. The musicians are recognized as talented or wonder children at an early age, and they are accepted as students of a master teacher. Their careers are built by merits, such as a spectacular debut leading to an international career. These career steps function as both merits and as an opening of doors. Further, they contribute by strengthening the musicians´ identities and their roles as successful musicians and role models within the field.

    Himmel och helvete: Framgång, ambivalens och habitus hos professionella musiker2018In: Praktiske grunde. Tidsskrift for kultur og samfunnsvitenskab, ISSN 1902-2271, E-ISSN 1902-2271, no 1-2, p. 21-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Heaven and hell – success, ambivalence and habitus among professional musicians. The present article is written from a praxeological perspective treating professional musicians within artmusic. The empirical material consists of two in-depth interviews with two prominent musicians and professors from the prestigious music colleges – two Maestros. These musicians are successful, though not unthreatened in their positions. Their dispositions and modes of being musicians have varying significance over time. This means that their success is relative, understood as a consequence of how their habituses correspond with the changing practice they are a part of. Their success has also had some personal costs. The focus of the article is the relatively strong ambivalence expressed by the musicians. How come such successful musicians experience such strong ambivalence regarding their work? How can this be understood and explained? What role does the Maestro-myth of talent and calling play – in relation to the conditions of the work and the social history and habitus of the musicians? Theoretical perspectives in the article come from sociologists Pierre Bourdieu and Francine Muel-Dreyfus and ethnologist Henry Kingsbury among others.

    Maestro! Yrkesmusikers sociala praktik, relativa framgång och habitus2019In: Praxeologi – Et kritisk refleksivt blikk på sosiale praktikker, E-ISSN 2535-6437, Vol. 1, article id e1566Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Maestro! The social practice, relative success and habitus of professional musicians In art music the Maestro is an important figure. The Maestro is an outstanding musician and teacher at one of the prestigious music colleges in Sweden. To be admitted as a student of a Maestro is to be granted access to the atrium of music. However, this is no guarantee of actually succeeding as a musician. Who is the Maestro? Which social practice is the Maestro part of, and which social practice is he/she maintaining? Who achieves a position as an outstanding musician, and what is required to hold such a position? The empirical material consists of three in-depth interviews with central musicians and teachers at the prestigious music colleges, which is used to reconstruct their positions and dispositions. The relative success of the musicians is understood in relation to the concept of habitus and in relation to a profession in transformation.

    ”Practice and all is coming” – beliefs and socializing rituals in the social practice of yoga

    The article sets out from sayings as “Practice and all is coming”, common among yoga-practitioners. The sayings are reconstructed as part of yoga as a social practice with specific beliefs, taken-for-granted truths and socializing rituals. The research-questions are: How can yoga be understood as a social practice, with specific beliefs and taken-for-granted truths? How are these beliefs and truths maintained and reproduced, and with which socializing rituals? How do professional yoga teachers position themselves within this practice, and how can the differences be understood? The empirical data consists of interviews with seven local yoga teachers and documents regarding three globally well-known yoga personalities, founders and gurus. The study results in a construction of the object, where beliefs and taken-forgranted truths about yoga, regarding for instance the importance of immersion, devotion and subordination, has a vital function in reproducing the social order. Charismatic cults as yoga and music, sports etcetera are being problematized, as both productive and risky
