    Cultural and racial politics of representation: a study of diasporic masculinities among Iranian men2009In: GEXcel Work in Progress Report, vol. 7: Proceedings from GEXcel theme 2 : Deconstructing the hegemony of men and masculinities : spring 2009 / [ed] Katherine Harrison and Jeff Hearn, Linköping: Institute of Thematic Gender Studies, Department of Gender Studies, Linköping University , 2009, , p. 13p. 77-89Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Building upon my doctoral thesis, Diasporic Narratives of Sexuality: Identity Formation among Iranian-Swedish Women", the research proposed here seeks to examine the under-researched area of masculinity and sexuality of Iranian men living in different diasporic spaces. For the purposes of this research I seek to investigate (a) the effect of Iranian Islamic cultures and socializations, (b) the experiences of migration and ethnic relations on the men’s practices of masculinity and sexuality, and (c) how these influences may complicate their (re) presentation and perceptions of their masculinities and sexual experiences. By studying the impact of Orientalist views on the men’s identity formations, this study aims to explore how Iranian born men (re)negotiate masculinity, sexuality and subjectivity as they confront the variety of orientalist stereotypes in different diasporc spaces. By analyzing how the dichotomization of ‘we and them’ arises in media, literature, and film among others, I aim to understand not only what prejudices the interviewee men face on a daily basis, but also how the stereotypes are used to differentiate Iranian (Middle Eastern) men from ‘liberated and equal seeking’ white Western men.

    Diaspora och sexualitet: Förhandlingar om kön och sexualitet i ett föränderligt iransk- svenskt kulturellt landskap2013In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 4, p. 97-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is about diaspora. Through an analysis of the narratives of first generation Iranianwomen living in Sweden, I demonstrate how migratory experiences impact sexuality and howand in what ways sexuality is constitutive to the migratory process. By discussing some of thekey subjects raised by the interviewees, such as intimacy in the diasporic space, contradictorygender discourses, the dominating impacts of existing Orientalist stereotypes, and their senseof (be)longing or lack of (be)longing, I examine how the women experience their sexualitythrough the intersecting and sometimes contradictory discourses.By focusing on entangled issues involving subjectivity, sameness, difference, otherness,domination, agency, and marginality, I destabilize essentialist approaches of identity. Withgender and sexuality as the main subjects of the analysis, I discuss how moral values of thewomen regarding (in)appropriate sexual behaviour undergo various transformations. Theytake part in multiple (Iranian and Swedish) discourses and discard others while striving tomake space for themselves ‘inside’ these constraining norms. The women experience adiscrepancy as a result of being thwarted by two seemingly different cultures – while bothcultures construct discourses filled with stereotypes of so-called natives and outsiders.However, living in Sweden, where intersecting racist and sexist discourses come to life on adaily basis, it is actually not a thwarting by ‘two cultures.’ It is, in fact, a merger ofSwedishness with Iranianness (with all their complexities), along with other characteristics. Itis a complexity within the culture(s) in which the women live.

    Diasporic Masculinities: Reflections on Gendered, Raced and Classed Displacements2012In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 159-166Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on reflections that have grown during the ongoing research on construction of masculinities and sexualities in different diasporic spaces. By focusing on theoretical and contextual reflections regarding conditions of leaving, arrival and residency among Iranian-born men who live in Sydney, Stockholm and London, this article focuses on intersecting factors that construct masculinities in different diasporic spaces. Migratory masculine subjectivities are not only shifting and plural, but also reveal the multiple interactions of factors such as race, age, class, self and community, past and present, the political and the religious and through the continual negotiation of identity.

    Diasporic Narratives of Sexuality: Identity Formation among Iranian- Swedish Women2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the sexuality of Iranian women living in Sweden. Considering sexuality as gendered and socio-culturally constructed, I examine the impact of Iranian Islamic discourses, contemporary socialization and migration on women’s narrations of sexuality. The theoretical platform arises from a Foucauldian discursive analysis of sexuality, including Iranian and/or Islamic discourses on sexuality, and diasporic and feminist postcolonial theories. The empirical basis of the thesis consists of ten in-depth interviews with first generation Iranian immigrant women in Sweden. The narratives are the textual field for exploring the divergent and contingent intersections of discourses that constitute the women’s sexuality. Themes that surface in the narratives are the importance of virginity, veiling practices, requirements for modest dress codes, lack of sexual education, first sexual experience, marriage, divorce and diasporic experiences.

    With sexuality as the main subject of analysis, my focus draws on articulations involving gender, otherness, agency and marginality. Being alert to different (at times contradictory) discourses, I study the tension that develops between the process of (self)disciplining the body and the women’s coping tactics. The study examines the ways women take part in existing institutions while exhibiting agency and creating new ways to negotiate across discourses. This thesis shows how moral values regarding sexual behavior undergo various and sometimes contradictory transformations. The women report being torn between two different cultures. Yet, while consistently facing a crossroads of racist and sexist discourses filled with stereotypes of so-called natives and outsiders, I argue that the women are not caught between two cultures. Rather, they live a hybrid experience of ‘Swedishness,’ ‘Iranianness’ and other social relations. Complexity defines their tactics; the women exist in the interstices of culture(s) and discourses.

    Abstract [sv]

    I det här kapitlet kommer jag att diskutera vem som känner sig hemma på universitetet i allmänhet och i genusvetenskapliga sammanhang i synnerhet. Vilka kroppar känner sig hemma? Vilka omständigheter gör att vi (inte) känner oss hemma? Jag kommer att reflektera utifrån postkoloniala tanketraditioner och mina egna erfarenheter av erkännanden och misskännan-den inom universitetsvärlden. Mina reflektioner är ett exempel på postkolonial feministisk kritik, en kritisk tradition som vitaliserar genusvetenskapen idag.

    I dialog: Intersektionella läsningar av hemhörighet, migration och kunskapsproduktion2017In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 77-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The dialogue-based article departs from our persistent research engagement with intersectional feminist approaches and questions related to racialization, representation, locationality and positionality. We focus on the notion of home and homelessness, longing and belonging, migration and knowledge production.

    Some of the troubling questions we engage with are: How are the (im)possibility of feeling at home, migratory subject positions, and knowledge production conditioned by shifting socio-political contexts, culturally coded circumstances and the conceptualisation of difference? How do constantly shifting and intersected power hierarchies (re)shape the conceptualisation and (re)presentation of the certain types of knowledge and knowledge-makers through academic production, and through literary and visual means?

    These questions are discussed in dialogue between us, two Swedish gender researchers interested in cultural practices and cultural representations. The article unfolds through a dialogical method where, initially, our respective positions and research inputs, in relation to the article’s questions, are presented. The article continues to discuss the very same questions predominantly through different literary and visual examples. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichies’ TED talk, The danger of single story, has an evolving and central role in our dialogue. By linking different examples to the existing intersecting institutionalized power relations, we show that the personal is institutional.

    Rasifiering av kunskapsproduktion: En epistemologisk resa genom processer av inkludering och exkludering i olika akademiska forum2017In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 31-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The central aim of this article is to examine intersectional processes of racialisation within the academic communities: racialisation of knowledge producers and their produced knowledge. We explore what kinds of knowledge productions and knowing subject positions are rendered (im)possible in everyday academic interactions. We use our racialised scholarly experiences as a methodological entry point to contextualise the navigations and negotiations of shifting and intersecting power relations. Our analytical reasoning is presented through several steps. First, we discuss how academic habitus and affiliations maintained in various formal and informal forums are based on established, racialised norms. Second, we discuss how the presence or absence of epistemic entitlement within different academic settings and communities is established through racialised hierarchies. Thus the physical, social, intellectual and emotional spaces that we inhabit create comfort zones for some and discomfort zones for others. Third, we argue how managing the existing accent ceiling becomes a mode for navigating the conditioning norms of whiteness. In our conclusions, we reflect on the passivity, silences as well as (mis)use of the vocabulary of anti-racism and intersectionality as a form of 'white' capital for shoring their privileges further rather than undoing it.

    The Racialised Knowledge Economy2019In: Narratives of Marginalized Identities in Higher Education: Inside and Outside the Academy / [ed] Santosh Khadka, Joanna Davis-McElligatt, Keith Dorwick, New York: Routledge, 2019, p. 86-99Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this article is to challenge and problematise how racialising and othering processes construct knowledge production and knowing subjects in the academic institutions. We draw on our conversations, writings, and experiences within the Swedish academy as “non-Swedes” (for discussion on construction of Swedishness, see Mattsson, 2005) and through our specific geo-political positionalities (Farahani, 2010, 2015; Koobak & Thapar-Björkert, 2012). Thapar-Björkert’s post-colonial positionality was shaped through the legacy of her parents’ anti-colonial activism. The spatial-colonial contexts of academic institutions in the United Kingdom, together with the nationalist biographical trajectories that she shared with her parents in India, gave postcoloniality an emotional and political salience. She developed strong perceptions of “white privilege” encompassed within what Chicano scholars refer to as “academic colonialism” (see Reyes & Halcon, 1988). Farahani was raised in a traditional working-class family in a specific political-historical Iranian setting and carried a suitcase filled with failed dreams of a miscarried revolution (1979 Iranian revolution), a pointless, long war between Iran and Iraq (1980–1988), and several experiences of exile. Her entrance to Western academia as a “mature” and “different” student is characterised by firsthand experience of the variety of (post) colonial challenges of “adjustment” to different societies and academic milieus. We consider our positions and positionings as a ‘space for theorising” (hooks, 1989) and our theorising as a “location of healing” (hooks, 2005: 36. hooks, 1994) to articulate multilayered subject positions which locate us differently in different contexts. Emphasising the empirical significance of intersectionality for transformative knowledge production, we aim to distance ourselves from a deployment of “ornamental intersectionality” which as Bilge (2013) argues is an active disarticulation of radical politics of social justice and undermines intersectionality’s credibility as “an analytical and political tool elaborated by less powerful social actors facing multiple minoritizations” (see Bilge, 2013, p. 410). By employing our personal—yet subjective and mediated—experiences, we pay particular attention to how we can use (our) 87experience as an analytical source. However, we want to avoid offering our experiences an exclusive privilege of definition since it might strengthen an epistemological standpoint that those who have “experience” know better and have somehow access to genuine knowledge, regardless of their intersecting subject positions, political ideologies and positionalities in relation to power and powerlessness. On the other hand, disregarding and disbelieving people’s lived experiences has always been a powerful approach to discredit the political views, writings, or artistic expressions of women and racialised and sexualised minorities. In doing so, the experience of unmarked privilege (white—male middleclass—privilege) becomes the only dominant singular story. In addition, by merely placing accounts of people of colour and women in the category of “experiential,” we neglect their theoretical contributions. As a result, white scholars are often seen as the only ones most equipped for theorising and producing knowledge and in a schema which constructs a disembodied theorist as the legitimate academic subject, drawing on one’s own experiences of racialisation can be “dismissed as subjective and ‘confessional’” (Simmonds, 1997, p. 52).

    Transnationell kultur i marginalen: ett vitalt fenomen i motvind: Rapport från ett kartläggningsprojekt2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the research project, resulting in the report “Transnationell kultur i marginalen” (Transnational Culture in the Margins), written by PhD Yael Feiler for The Multicultural Centre, with support from the Swedish Arts Council,

    was, to trace, to map, to contextualize and illuminate transnational cultural expressions and arrangements in contemporary Sweden, and to identify the obstacles and difficulties which obstruct those activities from being recognized and included in the cultural establishment.

    The method used was series of in-depth interviews with a large number of active practitioners working in different artistic genres in the outskirts of the Swedish cities Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg, as well as with politicians in charge of cultural issues.

    The results of the inquiry indicate that:

    • Transnational Culture in Sweden is a widespread and extensive phenomenon.     
    • Housing segregation on one hand, and ”compulsory integration” on the other, are, together with the dismantling of the welfare state, identified as central obstacles which obstruct those activities from being included in the cultural establishment.  
    • A continuous follow-up of transnational cultural expressions and activities is required if those should be included within a common cultural sphere.

    Visionära planer och vardagliga praktiker: Postmilitära landskap i Östersjöområdet2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the years after WWII the Baltic Sea Area developed into an area strongly divided between East and West. Because of the tensions between the blocs, the coastal areas where strongly militarized and prepared for war.

    The new political situation after 1989 propelled an international military disarmament and closing down of bases, training areas around Europe. Since the Baltic Sea Area was one of the heaviest militarized part of Europe the question of disarmament here is of particularly great economic, social and cultural importance.

    This study is about the post-military landscape in the Baltic Sea Area with examples from Dejevo on the Estonian island Saaremaa, Dranske on the (East)German island Rügen and Fårösund on the Swedish island Gotland.

    The aim of this thesis is to shed light on the process where the military landscape of the Cold War is transformed in order to be incorporated in the macro-regional endeavors for unity in the new Europe. I want to analyze the implications that planning visions have on the everyday life of people. A following aim is to shed light on the challenges that urban planning has to face in this transformation. Three research questions frame the study. The first question analyzes the process where the coastal areas of the Baltic Sea after the end of the Cold War are disarmed and transformed, from a landscape of production of military services and objects into a landscape of consumption for recreation and tourism. The second question takes its point of departure in the relation between planning visions and everyday life. The third question concerns the matter of the past and analyzes what aspects of the military landscape are emphasized respectively pushed aside in the transformation into post-military landscape.

    The study is based on interviews with inhabitants and local planners as well as macro-regional and local planning documents, articles and photographs.

    Radio: Vardagsliv tillsammans med ett massmedium2021Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the radio medium as a phenomenon of experience. The perspective relates to phenomenological philosophy, dealing with human knowledge as an ongoing intentional relationship with the world: to experience is to grasp things such as they appear to the subjective consciousness. Radio is accordingly understood as a phenomenon that is given meaning through the individual user’s encounters with the medium in its constitutive forms. 

    The research is based on a qualitative material of approximately 200 questionnaire responses and interviews with 17 persons, describing the presence of the medium in the current lives of the participants as well as through their lifetime, which, from a phenomenological viewpoint, makes radio appear both in terms of a present phenomenon and objects of recollection. The experiences that were documented in the late 2010s thus span almost the entire history of the radio medium in Sweden.

    The everyday embeddedness of radio is analyzed by focusing on three constitutive aspects that have emerged in the empirical data: technical equipment, mediated content, and temporal structures. By breaking down the phenomenon into these aspects, the thesis presents a detailed description of the ways in which radio is integrated into and constitutes everyday contexts. 

    Encounters with technical equipment, mediated content, and temporal structures are analytically described in terms of biographical orientations toward shifting media environments throughout the history of the medium. How radio has been present in life shapes experiences of radio in the present. Likewise, today’s media use defines how radio appears as a phenomenon of the past. Throughout the thesis, participants navigate radio environments in the shape of smartphones, transistor radios, vacuum tube receivers, linear flows of broadcasting, and on demand-structures. Radio is shown to be one of many interlaced components in the complex making of the everyday.

    Vänta barn: Förkroppsligande, materialitet och levd graviditet2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen bygger på en kvalitativ studie av ett tiotal kvinnors erfarenheter av graviditet i nutid. Studiens syfte är att få kunskap om graviditeten som kulturell process, genom att utforska hur levda erfarenheter formas i relationen mellan kropp och materialitet. Studien fokuseras till fyra tematiska områden som utgörs av graviditetsbeskedet, ultraljudsundersökningen, kroppens förändringar och tankar kring det väntade barnet. Det empiriska materialet består av intervjuer och observationer. Studien visar på att relationen mellan ting och människa framträder under flera av graviditetens faser; så som i kvinnornas strävan efter att bli gravida, i bekräftelsen av graviditeten och i förhållandet till det ofödda barnet. Vidare visar undersökningen hur förkroppsligandet av graviditeten och erfarandet av kroppens förändringar formas i relation till tankar och känslor i kvinnornas medvetande.

    Dräkten är en del av mig: En etnologisk studie av identitetsskapande i relation till Moradräkten2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Intresset för folkdräkter går ständigt upp och ned, men en dräkt som varit i bruk sedan 1600-talet och fortfarande används är Moradräkten. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vilken roll Moradräkten spelar i individuellt och kollektivt identitetsskapande. Undersökningens empiriska material består av transkriberingar av sju kvalitativa intervjuer med sju personer som är användare av Moradräkten. Till grund för analysen ligger Thomas Hylland Eriksens och Erving Goffmans teorier om identitetsskapande, samt betraktandet av dräkten som en materiell aktör och till sist begreppet topofili – människans känslomässiga band till en viss plats. Studien visar att dräkten används på olika sätt för att gestalta den individuella identiteten, samt att den både skapar gemenskap och avstånd till andra grupper. Dräkten kan både ses som en typ av rekvisita som används av dräktbäraren för att påverka dennes jag-framställning, men också som en aktör som i interaktionen med andra aktörer bidrar till identitetsskapandet. Bland annat visas med hjälp av Goffmans teori hur dräkten kan användas som rekvisita för att utöva intrycksstyrning och därmed påverka en människas jag-framställning så att omgivningen accepterar denne som någon med tillhörighet i Mora.

    Att göra borta hemma: En undersökning av gästforskares uppfattning om sitt boende i Stockholm2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    What is it that makes us feel at home in a place? How do we perceive the experience of moving to an unfamiliar country with the knowledge that we might just stay one or two years? In this thesis, made in collaboration with Sektionen för byggnadsplanering at Stockholm University, these questions are examined by investigating the behavior and thought patterns of guest scientists that have recently started working in Stockholm. During the thesis you get to know the tactics and thought patterns of five guest scientists currently living in Stockholm in relation to three major themes. The themes are “getting to know the city”, “visiting” and “the position in the city”. Under these general themes we get to understand how the guest scientists use different tactics to navigate moving to Stockholm. We also get to understand how they by moving to a place where they have no plans to be joined into a Gemeinschaft can get a bigger drive to work harder on their careers.

    A picture is worth a thousand words: On photographs, talking contexts and visual silences2020In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 117-132Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper’s point of departure is that historic silences are socially constructed and culturally productive, and that photographs in archives participate in the creation of historical silences despite, or maybe thanks to, their convincing depicting qualities. In this essay, photographs from three occasions have been studied in detail in order to elucidate different kinds of visual silences. The occasions are i) a funeral where it is the photographer’s own mother that is being buried, ii) a funeral where the coffin is covered in a draping with a swastika, and iii) a royal funeral. Adopting a self-reflexive outlook, the purpose of this essay is to suggest a few possible ways of addressing silences that can occur when the presumptions of a beholder meet the image content of a photograph from the past. The three examples show that the concept of visual silence can be applied in different ways. In the first example, the technical and artistic shortcomings are interpreted as silencing components, which can convey information. In the second example, the (to a contemporary beholder) provocative silence around the historically charged symbol of a swastika becomes an analytical resource in its own right. The last example illustrates how a lot of information can compose such a dominant narrative, that it silences other stories.

    "At Last, Garbo is coming home": Celebrity, death and nation2017In: Heritage of Death: Landscapes of Emotion, Memory and Practice / [ed] Mattias Frihammar; Helaine Silverman, Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge, 2017, p. 65-77Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses some of the events that took place between the death of Greta Garbo in 1990 in New York City and her interment at the Woodland Cemetery in Stockholm in 1999. Eventually Greta Garbo became one of the biggest stars on the silver screen. She was iconized as "The Divine", as beautiful and as unattainable as a goddess. The circumstances were very different between the violent death of Princess Diana and Garbo, who died of natural causes. The fact that Garbo was to be buried in Stockholm became headline news in Sweden as well as internationally. In the Swedish media bringing Garbo's ashes "back" to Sweden was described as a national triumph. The case of the Garbo ashes can be read as a kind of pop-cultural repatriation performance in a tourism setting. Diana had regularly been labeled an "icon" during her life, but in a pop-cultural and secular sense.

    Ur svenska hjärtans djup: Reproduktion av samtida monarki2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to show how Swedish royalty is reproduced and gains its extraordinary status through interaction between people, institutions and artefacts in the beginning of the 21st century.

    The analysis is based on data collected between 2003 and 2009 in different contexts where royalty and the monarchy are brought to the fore. The data consists of field notes from a municipality’s preparations for a visit of the king and queen of Sweden and three official events where royals are present, transcribed interviews, answers to a museums questionnaire and media material. The main theoretical premise is Actor Network Theory (ANT). Additionally, the study draws upon theories about cynical reason, modernity, humor and ritual.

    The study shows how royal sovereignty is reproduced basically by acts that separate persons and artifacts, put them on display and evaluates them as extravagant. These processes are at hand both in people’s everyday lives and during official event that present royals as the center of attention. Monarchy is interpreted as a modern institution mirroring notions of rationality through notions of irrationality, and the analysis shows how royal charisma is produced through performances fully in accordance with late-modern thinking and acting. The attractive royal mystic is interpreted as a consequence of a general strives to bring together the contrasting concepts of royalty and ordinariness. By analyzing humorous as well as servile attitude towards the royal institution and its representatives, the study shows how monarchy and the concept of royalty interact in the re-production of Sweden as a nation and in the individual citizen’s project of self-identity. Through creating memories of royal ancestors, individually and collectively, and through preserving the relations to existing royals and imagining the future of the royal family, a collective immortality is formed. In the process structures of inequality and social differences are established and made reasonable.

    Vrak och övergivna båtar: En armada i minnets marginaler2015In: I utkanter och marginaler: 31 texter om kulturhistoria: en vänbok till Birgitta Svensson / [ed] Matianne Larsson, Anneli Palmsköld, Helena Hörnfeldt, Lars-Eric Jönsson, Stockholm: Nordiska museets förlag , 2015, 1, p. 165-176Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Som kulturella lämningar är vrak och övergivna fritidsbåtar intressanta eftersom de befinner sig i marginalen på flera sätt. De ger uttryck för flera slags ambivalenser. En ambivalens rör kulturarvsaspekten: de övergivna båtarna är vissa specifika objekt inom en accepterad kulturarvskategori som inte anses som bevarandevärda. En andra ambivalens berör landskapet: övergivna fritidsbåtar lämnas att förfalla i naturen och beroende på vilken typ av båt och sönderfall det är fråga om kan de då antingen bli betraktade som pittoreska eller som svårt vanprydande inslag i landskapet. En äldre eka i trä som ligger till hälften sjunken kan till exempel väcka en slags ruinromantik, medan en dito plastmotorbåt från 80-talet ses som skräp. En tredje ambivalens rör övergivna båtars oreglerade status ur ett rättsligt perspektiv. Ingen bär till exempel ansvaret för en övergiven båt på drift: vems minnen kan en ägarlös båt härbärgera? Vrak efter äldre fritidsbåtar kan därtill knytas till två sidor av moderniteten, dels den industriella fabriksmässiga produktionen, dels fritidens framväxt och idyllisering.

    Med fritidsbåtsvrak som utgångspunkt diskuteras  individuella och kollektiva minnens betydelser och kopplingar, kulturarvets landskap och landskapens kulturarv, makten över förflutenheten och sist men inte minst modernitetens materiella lämningar.

    Förenade krafter och hotfull natur: Om gemenskap, naturvård och invasiva arter2021In: Laboratorium för folk och kultur: En kulturvetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 2489-7566, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I vår samtid av oroande rapporter om klimatförändringar och hotad biologisk mångfald, är det många som är engagerade i frågor om naturen och miljön. Till dagens miljöproblem räknas de invasiva främmande arter, som av Nationalencyklopedin definieras som ”icke ursprunglig art vilken påverkar det ekosystem som arten koloniserar”. I den här artikeln visar vi hur engagemangen i vad som betecknas som invasiva främmande arter bidrar till uppfattningar om den svenska naturen och till vissa givna förhållningssätt i naturfrågor. Det handlar då inte bara om idéer om en svensk natur, utan mer konkret om hur arbetet med att bevara en svensk natur i praktiken rymmer utrotningen av enskilda arter som signalkräftor, blomsterlupiner och spanska skogssniglar (också kända som mördarsniglar). Här utgör politiska strävanden, lagstiftning och regleringsarbete villkorligheter som bidrar till affektiva gemenskaper där de invasiva arterna ses som ett självklart problem. Samtidigt finns här motrörelser och i arbetet med de främmande invasiva arterna uppstår också konfliktytor. Hantering av främmande invasiva arter, tidigare en fråga för specialister, engagerar idag allmänhet och föreningsliv. Nya vanor och kulturella mönster etablerats när myndighetsarbete, nyhetsrapportering, föreningsverksamhet och individuella initiativ samspelar. Det är ett sammanhang i rörelse, där arters förändrade status också etablerat sociala positioner och svårrubbliga sanningar.
