    Fears in Motion: Children’s Fears as Cultural and Historical Practice2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the dawn of the twenty-first century, we live in a time of fear, what many scholars, especially in the US, have referred to as “The Culture of Fear” (Bourke 2005, Furedi 1997, Glassner 1999). Whether it is the fear of natural disasters, the fear of environmental catastrophes or the fear of terrorist attacks, we currently live in a state of constant anxiety about the dangers that could strike unannounced and at any moment. Living with constant anxiety and fear is also a reality for many children and teenagers who, as several surveys have shown, fear the present as well as the future.

    By focusing on children ́s narratives and adult memories of fears in childhood, this paper aims to examine fears as cultural and embodied experiences. In what way are emotions (i.e. fears) socially and culturally conditioned? What cultural narratives concerning fear are articulated in the children´s accounts, and what narratives are available in different social and cultural settings? How do children make sense of fear as an embodied perception and experience and in what ways do fears create identification and special conditions of everyday life? I understand emotions as a set of communicative symbols whose meaning is not obvious but depends on individual experiences. Feelings of fear is thus not something that the individual has, in itself, independent of the surrounding community, but are here understood as a cultural phenomenon and something that takes place in actions, in interaction with and dependence on other people (eg Ahmed 2004).

    Prima barn, helt u.a.: Normalisering och utvecklingstänkande i svensk barnhälsovård 1923-20072009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation examines the developmental controls of Swedish children; primarily of four-year-olds. The aim is to show how these controls have constituted children as normal or deviant, and on what epistemological and social bases this ordering has taken place. The history of the child development control demonstrates how certain children have been identified and addressed as in need of special support. Therefore this study departs from extant works theoretically through examining who owns the privilege of assigning definitions.

    As in many other contexts, ideas about development and normality are vital in child health care. In this study, these themes have been analysed in relation to the establishment and maintenance of child health care as well as to general historical processes. That the responsibility for children’s development shifted from charity organisations to become a public societal issue was part of a larger national and welfare state establishment. One inherent aim of this process was to craft conditions for a functional and strong population on norms built on the middle classes’ generic setup and work ethic. Notwithstanding today’s different language, the empirical findings of the study indicate that children’s health issues are still part of a general process of national construction and that Swedish middle-class standards on children and parenthood still provide cultural models.

    The empirical sources of the study are mainly documents from 1923-2007. It concerns child health care directives, annual reports, educational materials, articles, official reports and audits, 1000 systematically chosen child health care journals, interviews with child health care nurses and paediatricians and a small amount of observed and filmed four-year-old controls.

    Who’s knowledge is subjective? Ethnological Reflexivity in the Era of Intersectionality2015In: Conference Booklet, 2015, p. 20-20Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There are intersecting and shifting reasons behind why and how produced knowledge and knowledge producers are credited or discredited. Here, I will reflect over how and in what ways the ever-changing position of the researcher has an impact on how the produced knowledge is perceived within the discipline of ethnology. Furthermore, I will analyse what shape the prio-ritization of knowledge has within the field of ethnological research. I will particularly focus on the hierarchy of knowledge production based on (a.) the research subject matter and (b.) researchers’ intersecting and shifting subject positions. Drawing on discussions of reflexivity and positionality in some of the contemporary ethnological research, for the purpose of this presentation, I aim to demonstrate how some researchers’ positions in regards to their research subject is emphasized while others go untouched. Why is it that some researchers embody the knowledgeable subject regardless what type of research subject they choose to conduct? For instance, while feminist and postcolonial researchers’ knowledge productions have often been disqualified as both subjective and highly political, the other researchers easily can disclaim their subjective position and political agenda. In other words, who is perceived as ‘insider researcher’ and how this has an impact on how the produced knowledge is perceived is therefore closely linked to notions of gender, age, race, and sexuality.

    Los "piqueteros" y el "campo": Construcciones discursivas de dos grupos sociales en la Argentina post-crisis del 20012009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    En esta investigación se emplea el análisis del discurso para indagar cómo se construye diferente a dos grupos sociales en la Argentina en diversos relatos periodísticos. Se analiza el caso de una protesta piquetera en el año 2002 y la protesta del “campo”en el año 2008, ambas con cortes de rutas como método en común. La autora quiere indagar si existen nociones de raza en el imaginario de la clase media porteña respecto de los piqueteros, y si se articulan actitudes despectivas y de intolerancia hacia los marginados en los relatos periodísticos. El objetivo es examinar cómo ciertos discursos describen y así construyen a los dos grupos distintos de protesta social. Otro propósito es mostrar como actúa el poder en los discursos,donde se presentan desigualdades como verdades naturalizadas. Se concluye que se construye a los dos grupos en manera diferentes y que existe una cierta racialización. Además se observa una lucha entre “civilización” y “barbarie”, en las construcciones de los “piqueteros” de los barrios marginados del Gran Buenos Aires.

    Abstract [sv]

    I den här kulturhistoriskt inriktade uppsatsen studeras och jämförs Årstafrun Märta Helena Reenstiernas maktposition som hustru och änka. Hon var en adelskvinna som bodde på Årsta Gård från slutet av 1700-talet fram till sin död år 1841. Det primära materialet består av Årstadagböckerna, en dagbokssvit som Årstafrun författade mellan åren 1793-1839. I uppsatsen studeras Årstafrun i äktenskapet och hur hennes position som hustru och husfru bestämde hennes handlingsutrymme. Studien undersöker också vad som hände med husbondemakten när den förflyttades till änkan, var änkemakten en tillgång eller börda?

    At the Times of Writing Expectation and Experience in Cruising Sailors' Online Travelogues2020In: Western Folklore, ISSN 0043-373X, E-ISSN 2325-811X, Vol. 79, no 2-3, p. 251-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper on cruising sailors' online travelogues examines storytelling as an ongoing process. In this work, I combine perspectives from research on narrative and on the experience of time to introduce an analytical simile comparing storytelling with the embroidery stitch backstitch. I show the ways in which cruisers write their way along travelled routes, describing past and future events from an ever-changing present position for a contemporaneous audience.

    Drömmen om äventyret: Långfärdsseglares reseberättelser på internet2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation investigates the online travel writing of Swedish cruising sailors. The aim is to analyze how crews in online travelogues describe ongoing experiences, and to show how the journeys, the stories and the storytelling are mutually related to one another. As journeys are both the plots of the stories and the contexts for the storytelling, the travelogues in question challenge established narrative definitions. The analysis combines Amy Shuman’s folkloristic research on immediate storytelling with historian Reinhart Kosellecks’ perspectives on time as situated and subjective. Storytelling is thereby understood as a contextual and variable practice: conditioned, enabled and limited by the writers’ current position and point of view, and by a series of practical, technological, narrative and social factors. The study is based on ethnographic fieldwork online and offline. The material primarily consists of four crews’ blogs and web pages, written texts, photographs, and readers’ comments. Interviews were conducted with the main informants and an additional fifteen crews in Sweden and in the harbours of Horta and Las Palmas. As the analysis show, the sailors’ write and publish updates from ever-changing positions in time and space, thereby depicting their journeys as a practical and cognitive process. These stories are to a great extent motivated by and directed towards the future, as sailors long for warmer destinations and worry about upcoming passages. The sailors write for a real-time audience partly consisting of families and friends, who anxiously wait for new updates. Writing is therefore sometimes perceived as a work-like task, and the sailors must develop strategies in order to write entertaining and exciting stories without further troubling their readers. The study’s result indicate that online storytelling can be understood as a process, which cannot be separated from the described events, nor from its everyday contexts. Stories, storytelling and experiences are understood as integrated with each other, since the storytelling as a practice become an established part of the everyday life during journeys.

    Grankvistar, äppelkaka och improvisation: Erfarenheter av arbetet bakom personliga begravningsritualer2021In: Tidsskrift for kulturforskning, ISSN 1502-7473, E-ISSN 2387-6727, no 2, p. 59-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Requests for personal funeral rituals increase with growing secularization and the indi-vidualization of death. Based on interviews, this article discusses four women’s experi-ences of independently planning and conducting secular memorials and ash disposals. Idiscuss the role of improvisation in the processes surrounding these rituals. Imagination,invention, improvisation, independence and inspiration emerge as characteristic aspectsof their accounts. Due to the atheist beliefs of the deceased, the families have activelydistanced themselves from the Church’s funeral ritual, and undertakers were not con-sidered helpful. To amend this, the relatives assumed responsibility for planning thesecular funerals rather than leaving responsibility to the dominant authorities of death.Arranging memorials and burials without previous experience made the mourners feelinsecure, but they also took pleasure in the creativity of the process, through which theycreated meaningful and deeply personal memorials and ash disposals. The study showshow rituals were (re)created by combining personal details with already establishedfuneral ritual elements, as the mourners both mimicked and actively distanced them-selves from existing ritual forms.

    Abstract [en]

    Ash disposal at sea is a rapidly growing phenomenon in Sweden. To scatterthe ashes of a loved one over water may appear particularly appealing if thedeceased had had a strong connection to the sea. It may also give rise to private sites of memory in the maritime landscape as the mourners attribute newmeanings to the sea.

    Abstract [en]

    In 1985 the County Administrative Boardof Jämtland initiated a process to protect Storsjöodjuret (the Great Lake Monster). Asother famous cryptids, the Monster has become a valuable resource in the process of cultural heritage, marketing and tourism. We apply Bateson’s theories of play (1972) and Goffman’s concept of frame (1974) to show how play offers a metacommunicative strategy to circumvent expressions of disbelief in a locally important folkloristic phenomenon. We ask what reactions the board’s invitation to play are met with, and how the case’szoological, cultural and juridical frames are negotiated.

    The process is analysed with respect to the different actors’ relation to genres and keys. The playful process in 1985 is contrasted by the judicial intervention in 2002 by the parliamentary ombudsman by whom humour and play are not deemed acceptable communicative strategies. We understand this in terms of closeness, and find that closeness to Storsjöodjuret is a direct factor both to the complexity of suitable communicative strategy, as well as to the creation of the protective decision made as such.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses narrative and social challenges following development in communication technology. The paper aims to show how Swedish cruising sailors adapt the style and content of their online travel writing, with the interest of different audience groups in mind. How do they manage the sometimes conflicting interests of different audience groups? What is considered un-tellable, and why? The analysis is based on interviews with Swedish cruising sailors and on analysis of primarily four online cruising travelogues. The article combines folkloristic and socio-linguistic perspectives on communicative competence and on immediate or ongoing storytelling, to describe a narrative awareness of the cruisers. As I show, concern for the readers make online travel writing whilst travelling a work-like task. The cruisers develop strategies to write entertaining and exciting stories without worrying family members, and must try to instruct fellow cruisers without boring the non-sailors in the audience. Lastly, the article advocates a combination of online and offline qualitative fieldwork to enable an understanding of online and ongoing storytelling practices, and the social and narrative strategies of people active in social media.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes three examples (St Gall, Fulda, Bury St Edmunds) of conflicts between abbots and their monks in the High Middle Ages. It explores the strategies and means of power , as well as the communicative and linguistic conditions underlying them, which monks used when they clashed with their abusive abbots. The article argues that in those delicate moments when the outside world was involved into the internal conflicts, the monks often resorted to oral and ritual communication rather than writing. Writing was public and therefore precarious while monks strived to control the message and the image the outside world had of them.

    The Back Way To Europe & Everything in Between: A Study of Migration Culture in The Gambia2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Crossing the Sahara to reach Libya for the purpose of onward migration across the Mediterranean to Italy is what in Gambia is called “The Back Way”. The aim of this study is to examine the ambitions and reasons behind a migratory project from The Gambia to Europe. By identifying the key constituents of a migration culture, I can get a broader insight into why the celebration of migration is evident, and how the ‘story of Europe’ is shaped. I have interviewed Gambians who are geographically in different places and who all find themselves in different life trajectories, most of them connected to migration. My conversations about migration, “The Back Way” and Europe stretches from interviews with repatriates, aspiring migrants and non-migrants. I have also interviewed Gambians in the Diaspora. In this study, I found a strong societal expectation and hope towards both migration and the diaspora which in return caused certain diasporic behavior that painted a misleading picture of Europe. I also found a strong hope and resilient aspirations in terms of social status and recognition believed to be attained easier as a migrant coming back from Europe.

    Ullebergs sinnesslöanstalt - En glömd historia?: En etnologisk studie om en anstalt i brytningstid2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien synliggör berättelser från Ullebergs sinnesslöanstalt i Karlstad. Materialet består till största del av tidningsartiklar och arkivmaterial så som brev, utredningsdokument och journalanteckningar. I enlighet med Foucaults maktanalys undersöks hur makt och motstånd utövades innanför och utanför anstaltens väggar. Det förekom både fysiskt, verbalt och skriftligt motstånd och detta motstånd utövades av intagna, föräldrar, personal, med flera. Människors handlingsutrymme påverkades av vilken samhällsklass de ansågs tillhöra, och klassificeringen av vissa människor som sinnesslöa baserades till viss del på vilken familjebakgrund de hade. Uppsatsen tar sin utgångspunkt under 1950-talet, vilket var en brytningstid då det som verkade självklart i samhället började att ifrågasättas. Genom makt och motståndsutövningar förändrades den överordnade diskursen, vilket också förändrade livsvillkoren för de människor som hade klassificerats som sinnesslöa.

    Ullebergs sinnesslöanstalt är idag inte ett institutionaliserat kulturarv, men i studien undersöks anstalten som ett potentiellt svårt kulturarv. En svårighet med att eventuellt tilldela anstalten och dess berättelser kulturarvsstatus kan vara att de före detta intagna kanske inte önskar att deras svåra berättelser ställs ut som offentliga kulturarv. En fördel med att ge anstalten en kulturarvsutnämning kan vara att berättelserna synliggör hur det moderna samhället drog gränser kring vad som ansågs vara normalt och vad som ansågs vara avvikande, samt att de visar hur människor påverkades av de rådande normerna.

    Advocating Equilibrium: On Climate Change at Public Aquariums2021In: Climate Change Temporalities: Explorations in Vernacular, Popular, and Scientific Discourse. / [ed] Kyrre Kverndokk; Marit Ruge Bjærke; Anne Eriksen, London: Routledge, 2021Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter investigates representations of climate change at public aquariums, focussing on the Oceanário de Lisboa’s effort to inform visitors about nature and to encourage more environmentally friendly behaviours. This is analysed using Labov and Waletzky’s theory of narratives of personal experiences and Bakhtin’s chronotope concept. The study presents two primary chronotopes: the habitat, which conveys a cyclical time, emphasising stability and continuity; and a second, globally anchored chronotope, characterised by environmental threats and human alterations of the oceans. Together, they form an environmental chronotope, representative for public aquariums, characterised by the interplay between habitat/balance and environmental threat/unbalance.

    Beatles-fragment i rörelse: En guidad bussturs narrativa ordnande av tid och rum2013In: Bussen är budskapet: Perspektiv på mobilitet, materialitet och modernitet / [ed] Lotten Gustafsson Reinius, Ylva Habel, Solveig Jülich, Stockholm: Kungliga biblioteket , 2013, p. 170-189Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utgångspunkten för denna artikel är en guidad rundtur till Beatles Liverpool. Med stöd i aktör­nätverksteori arbetar texten med frågan om grunderna för den framställning av Beatles som passagerarna får ta del av. Framställningen ses som ett resultat av guidens berät­telser, bussens rörelser genom stadsrummet och hur detta samverkar med passagerarnas uppfattning om och erfarenhet av Beatles. Beatles själva uppfattas som en samling fragment bestående av bland annat berättelser, stadsstråk, byggnader, sångtexter, musik och ikoniska bilder. Framställningen uppfattas inte som en enhetlig berättelse utan snarare som en uppsättning små berättel ser lagda vid sidan om varandra. Tanken är här främst att se framställningen som en anslagstavla där olika händelser och anekdoter placeras bred­vid varandra. Det ger en framställning som ordnas mer av plats än kronologi och där guidernas såväl som passagerarnas egna känslor inför Beatles har en avgörande betydelse för den historieproduktion som äger rum under rundturen.

    Lanthandlare: en etnologisk undersökning av en ekonomisk verksamhet1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study of country shopkeepers in Norra Klarälvsdalen, Värmland, in the early 1990s. The aim of the thesis is to examine how the work of the country shopkeepers is constituted in a field of competing ideas about retail trade. The interest is focused on how the work done by country shopkeepers takes shape and acquires its character in existing circumstances, and also on the extent to which the country shopkeepers themselves are able to shape the circumstances in which they work. The material for the study was collected between 1990 and 1997. The core consists of a field study in Klarälvsdalen, where I did participant work in eight shops. This is supplemented with material from a dozen different periodicals in the trade press from 1991 to 1993, and local newspapers from the same period.

    In this study I have worked with two overall categories as regards specifying the social circumstances on which the work of the country shopkeepers was based. On the one hand there is the local market, with a clientele with certain wishes and a way of life rooted in the countryside. On the other hand there are the large distribution chains, their range and their ideals of healthy trade. Through their work, the country shopkeepers found themselves mediating between these two domains.

    Retail trade is provincial in character, and the assessments by which the country shopkeepers perceived the local market had developed as a result of the shopkeepers having lived with and being a part of the local circumstances. The shopkeepers were not passive in relation to their market; instead they were involved in creating their own conditions. With occasional exceptions, they were part of organized retail trade. The distribution chain gave a social affiliation, and the shopkeepers were offered not only goods but also information and know-how in the form of courses and ample printed matter.

    Organized retail trade furthered healthy trade and competition on equal terms. The engagement comprised both a cultural and an organizational order. The work took place both through public debates and through everyday distinctions, with pleasant shops and correct behaviour being encouraged. For organized trade it was a matter of separating unhealthy trade from healthy trade in the interest of the consumer.

    In the day-to-day exercise of their profession, the shopkeepers gave a face to the desired qualities that characterize healthy trade. They were close to their employees, their customers, and their shop. It was difficult, however, to run a shop in the countryside, so certain public subsidies were available. This undermined the competition on equal terms that the organized retail trade aspired to. From their point of view, the country shop thus represented healthy trade on unhealthy terms.

    The country shopkeepers' experience of the local context took shape in a habitus in which one important distinctive feature was a feeling and concern for the preferences and wishes of the customers. The shopkeepers tried to satisfy these, but they did so within the limits of their perception of healthy and proper trade. In this respect the country shopkeeper was not just the intermediary through which goods were channelled, but also a link joining the local market to the value system of retail trade.

    Promoting Environmental Awareness.: On Emotions, Story-Telling, and Banal Sustainability in a Staged Rainforest2019In: Ethnologia Europaea, ISSN 0425-4597, E-ISSN 1604-3030, Vol. 49, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the promotion of environmental awareness in a staged rainforest at a science centre in Sweden. The organizers worked with the agenda to change people’s everyday behaviour and consumer routines and especially targeted the use of palm oil. This mundane way of approaching environmental issues is defined by the author as banal sustainability. The exhibited forest was employed for guided walks, stressing the domestication of the environmental challenges into issues of people’s everyday life practices. The promotion of an awareness rested on the bodily experience of moving in the staged rainforest, emphazising astonishment, adventure, and empathy. It worked as an attachment site, connecting insight to action. As such, it was practice-oriented, simplifying, and empowering.
