    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish debate concerning honour killings has largely revolved around the concept of “culture” – or more specifically, it has revolved around the ways in which different writers have criticized some other debaters for misusing the concept. Hence, this debate sheds light on how the concept of culture has come to occupy a position in something one might call a linguistic quarantine. Cultural explanations are often considered an issue which must be handled with great caution in order not to explode into cultural racism, or to an undesired exaggeration of cultural difference. Moreover, the most serious objections against the con- cept of culture seem to occur in the very field which the concept has traditionally been regarded as most suitable for. Recent controversies around phenomena such as honour killings, structural dis- crimination and cultural racism reveals that it first and foremost is in relation to the “exotic other” that cultural explanations nowadays are becoming questioned. On the other hand, few debaters and researchers are ready to seriously do away with a concept they continue to understand as applicable for their own analyses. The aim of this article is, therefore, to highlight some of the critical arguments in this debate, so as to discuss the ambivalences that distinguish contemporary public disputes about culture and cultural explanations.

    keywords: the concept of culture, honour killing, linguistic quarantine, culture racism.

    Abstract [en]

    Following the Lobster

    In this article, lobsters serve as an analytical trace element for a further discussion about the mutual relation between materiality and meaning. Through keystrokes in different historical and contemporary contexts, the first part of the text presents a number of examples of what a lobster could be – and what it could also be expected to do. The second part discusses the act of following as a culture-analytical method, and indicates the benefits that concepts like frequency, density and population can have.

    Asking oneself what a lobster could be underlines that lobsters have more than one meaning. In other words, it is a way of helping us to see how the meaning we ascribe to a lobster is dependent on the kind of company it keeps. Lobsters seldom appear alone. On the contrary, they are almost always surrounded by other things, at the same time as they are objects for highly varying practices. For someone whose task it is to actively look for lobsters, i.e. what in the article is called following the lobster, this is especially clear. When lobsters are moved from one context to another, the setting is also changed. The earlier network of objects, people and physical environments that surrounded the lobsters changes shape. For lobsters, every new setting also means a new network.

    In this way, the following of lobsters illustrates how translations and meaning-making should be understood as both material and cultural phenomenon. In the analysis, the object is always one and the same – lobsters – while the setting and the network can change several times by simply twisting the lens. All this can be regarded as a kaleidoscopic cultural analysis, where the ambition is to discover something new about the lobster by searching for it in expected as well as unexpected places. At the same time, the intention is also to generate new knowledge about the contexts and activities that are actualised by the presence of the lobsters. This is why the article’s recurring question – which is posed in the presence of every specific lobster population – is, what is the work that the lobsters are expected to do, right there and then?

    Abstract [sv]

    Vad talar människor om när de talar om humrar? Vad betyder en sjöbod? Och hur konstrueras attraktiva resmål med hjälp av både berättelser och föremål? I den här artikeln blir västkustens hummerfiske en ingång till vidare resonemang om människors relationer till natur, plats och historia.

    Till följd av m igration samexisterar i dagens Sverige skiftande genusordningar. Syftet med detta projekt är att analysera hur "muslimska/orientaliska" respektive "svenska" politiska sätt att se på kön, sexualitet och familj utmanar/s, omstrids och förhandlas på fem arenor: familjen, bostadsområdet, arbetsplatsen, moskén och rätten. I fokus står frågor om religionsfrihet, mänskliga rättigheter, jämställdhet, könssegregering, föräktenskaplig sexualitet, kvinnors fri- och rättigheter.

    Abstract [en]

    In this volume of studies, Animal: Moments of Affect, Moments of Pain, eight ethnologists apply a cultural perspective to people’s varied and complex relationships with other species. The contributions focus on wild animals, that is, those that are rarely found in the authors’ immediate vicinity. Based on ongoing research, the articles discuss themes such as conflicts and joys in the birdwatching world, charismatic animals in various exhibition contexts, children’s fears, morbid animal jokes and the ritual transformation of living animals into edible meat. The texts range from the tender, comical and cute to death and existential vulnerability. The book begins with the editors presenting an overview of how animals have been produced, noticed and studied in a mostly Nordic humanistic research context. Then the articles follow. Based on the idea of affective logic, Elin Lundquist follows the on-site monitoring of the bird hunting that takes place annually in Malta. Mattias Frihammar uses observations at a wilderness gallery with taxidermied animals to reflect on local identity. Lars Kaijser examines the ambivalent and conflicted portrayal of sharks in public aquariums. Sverker Hyltén-Cavallius writes about the death of extinct animals and how this is displayed in natural history museums. Susanne Nylund Skog examines birdwatchers’ stories as an expression of collecting and as a way of manifesting status. With lobster cartoons as a starting point, Simon Ekström shows how these depict both animal rights issues and human anxiety. Helena Hörnfeldt investigates animal fear and the diffuse boundary between humans and animals. Proceeding from different depictions of slaughter and the preparation of meat, Michelle Zethson problematizes how some animals are made edible. The volume ends with an epilogue by the editors commenting on the findings.

    Sjövägen till Sverige: från 1500-talet till våra dagar2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    För första gången tar Sveriges främsta maritima forskare ett helhetsgrepp på det maritima området Sverige och Norden. Sjövägen till Sverige lyfter fram kunskapen om havets centrala roll i Sveriges samtid och historia. Det handlar om de långa historiska linjerna, från Gustav Vasas tid till idag. Bokens första del ger en bred introduktion till svenska sjökrig och örlogsflottans historia, utrikeshandel och sjöfart, skeppsvarvens historia, fiske och passagerarsjöfart. Den andra delen innehåller mer avgränsade utblickar. Här behandlas ämnensom sjömanstatueringar, hummerfiske, det unika svenska intressetför fritidsbåtar mm. I stort som smått visar perspektiven på hur viktigt havet varit för både nationen och dess människor. Att detta förhållande behöver framhållas i en egen bok förklaras kanske av att havet är ständigt närvarande och ändå lätt glöms bort. Inte minst gäller det havets och sjöfartens betydelse i den svenskahistorieberättelsen.
