    Sorting people in and out: The plasticity of the categories of employability, work capacity and disability as technologies of government2013In: Ephemera : Theory and Politics in Organization, ISSN 2052-1499, E-ISSN 1473-2866, Vol. 13, no 4, p. 825-850Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ‘employable individual’ is today a powerful normative category, saturated with assumptions about what it takes to be attractive in the labour market. What happens to people who cannot meet those expectations? For some, the way to employability and employment goes through a process of detecting and coding of disability at the Public Employment Service (PES). Based on interviews with staff at a rehabilitation unit in the Swedish Public Employment Service, the article analyses processes of evaluating work capacity for marginally employable people as part of the Employability Rehabilitation Programme. By studying the classification procedures, the article analyses how administrative categories work as ‘technologies of government’ that ‘make legible’ desirable traits in the individual. The analysis shows that employability is mediated, or enabled, by classificatory procedures that spring out of a template for what is considered acceptable and desirable individual characteristics, hence reinforcing standards of normalcy. Moreover, the categories through which the individual moves are plastic and pliable in relation to political predicates and labour market fluctuations. In this process, to be non-employable becomes a disability and conversely, to be disabled can make one employable.

    Talking like an institutional investor: On the gentle voices of financial giants2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Institutional investors, such as mutual funds, insurance companies and pension funds, are large shareholder organizations commissioned to manage other people’s money. They have emerged as influential front figures of the responsible investment industry claiming to make money and make a difference and positioning themselves as the ‘active’ and ‘responsible’ do-gooders of finance. These intermediary organizations have in a relatively short time grown in size and scope and now dominate corporate ownership globally. Institutional investors have, at that, emerged as front figures of the responsible investing industry. They are normative and fostering financial actors that aim to, in their view, better the way companies conduct their businesses.

    I suggest that ‘voice’ must be seen is the most important and defining feature of the large and influential new powerhouses of finance. I will, more specifically, show how institutional investors use ‘voice’, ‘dialogue’ and ‘small talk’ with the intent to (1) define and position themselves as a particular type of financial market actor, (2) foster and try to change companies that they own shares in, and (3) set new standards for the investment industry.

    The social life of categories: affirmative action and trajectories of the indigenous2013In: Focaal: European Journal of Anthropology, ISSN 0920-1297, E-ISSN 1558-5263, Vol. 2013, no 65, p. 33-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I examine the ways in which the term “indigenous peoples“ is reworked in a specific South Asian context. I focus on the new, hybrid category of “indigenous tribe“ in the Indian state of Meghalaya. I argue that we can think of the indigenous tribe category as a strategic conflation of two different regimes of rights or political assertions. The first relates to the existing nation-state framework for affirmative action as expressed in the Scheduled Tribe (ST) status, while the second relates to the emerging global framework for asserting the rights of indigenous peoples. While the benefits of asserting the status of indigenous tribes is obvious, for example, preventing other, nonindigenous tribes from owning land in the state, the long-term gains seems more doubtful. Both affirmative action programs and indigenous peoples frameworks are motivated by a moral imperative to redress historical injustices and contemporary social inequalities. To evoke them for other ends might eventually backfire. The larger point I seek to make, however, is that political categories tend to take on a life of their own, escaping their intended purposes and hence applied by people in novel and surprising ways.

    The Suburb United Will Never Be Defeated: Youth Organization, Belonging, and Protest in a Million Program Suburb of Stockholm2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the continually reconfiguring response of a youth organization towards a renovation project, Järvalyftet, run by the City of Stockholm in the Million Program suburbs. By analyzing this relationship, I aim to discuss how the youth organization works to mediate inclusion in political and representational spheres. More specifically, I will discuss the intersections between Järvalyftet’s development and the claims of belonging made by the youths upon the particular suburb, Husby, where they resided. My interest lies in understanding the conjuncture and disjuncture of claims that have been made to community, locality, and local knowledge in the interaction between the youth organization and the project Järvalyftet. I argue that the forms of community instigated by the youth organization, which were based on locality and “blackness”, allowed them to position themselves as key proponents of social and political change, as well as mobilize allies in others who identified with those experiences.

    Watermarks: Urban Flooding and Memoryscape in Argentina2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between social experience and action in the context of recurrent disasters is often thought of in terms of adaptation. This study problematises this assumption from an anthropological perspective by analysing the memoryscape that mediates past experiences of disasters. The inquiry is based on translocal and transtemporal ethnographic fieldwork conducted in 2004-2011 in the flood-prone city of Santa Fe in Argentina. The study examines how past flooding is remembered by flood victims in the middle- and low-income districts and by activists of the protest movement that emerged in the wake of the 2003 flood. It deals with flood memory in the local bureaucracy, in local historiography, myths and popular culture. The analysis reveals that the Santafesinian flood memoryscape is dynamically configured by evocative, reminiscent and commemorative modes of remembering, which are expressed in multiple forms, ranging from memorials and rituals to bureaucratic documents, infrastructure and everyday practices. The study addresses the relationship between memory, morality and social inequality and discusses the implications for questions regarding vulnerability, resilience and adaptation.

    Ways of Seeing Ireland’s Green: From Ban to the Branding of a nation2013In: The Senses & Society, ISSN 1745-8927, E-ISSN 1745-8935, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 233-239Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ireland has long been identified as the Green Isle. Drawing on extensive ethnographic research, this article explores the color green in Ireland in terms of visualization and marketing in relation to dress and tourist design. The focus on different ways of seeing Ireland's green reveals the color as an identity marker, highly charged politically and culturally. Starting out as a political statement of Irish identity, green became a marker to outsiders signaling Irishness. The ban on “the wearing of the green” during British colonialism reinforced the significance of green in Ireland. Green was the color of the Republican revolutionary organization, and was identified as the national color long before Ireland became an independent nation in 1922. Now green remains an indicator in outsiders' visual construction of Irishness. The extensive wearing of green on St Patrick's Day, the national day, is a continued celebration of national independence fueled by the legacy of the ban, not only in Ireland but among Irish diaspora communities across the globe. The color green is the signature color in the branding of Ireland as a tourist destination.

    Writing development2013In: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 4-7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Development professionals spend a lot of time writing and the aid industry has a vast production of texts. The author argues here that anthropology of development needs to look anew at how these texts are being produced, circulated and the purposes they serve. I have briefly identified six features of development writing: 1. Institutional ownership, 2. multiple authorship, 3. impersonal style, 4. terminology, 5. Communicable simplifications and 6. temporality. The more general point is to call for a more sophisticated engagement with development texts. There might be more going on in these documents than immediately meets the eye. More than anything else, these texts grant legitimacy and presence to the actors involved in development. Writing development is more about the production process, the language and what it ultimately bring in terms of aid flows, rather than the substance of the text itself.

    Beyond a Swedish horizon: Young migrants in Sweden and their transnational prospects2012In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 124-132Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    This article examines the way in which young people of migrant descent in Sweden account for their future prospects and career plans. The article demonstrates how both their position as "migrants" in Sweden and their attachment to a transnational network has a significant impact on how young migrants express ideas and talk about future opportunities. The main conclusion is that from the perspective of young migrants, the transnational social network is a significant social reality to which they position themselves consciously. The network is also attributed a social capital that could extend the subjects’ horizon of action beyond the nation-state boundaries. In this sense, transnationality is a vivid dimension in the young migrants’ life prospects.

    Bourdieu - och kampen om erkännande: Stort firande i Frankrike tio år efter Bourdieus död2012Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    För intellektuella som  tidigt lockades av lyskraften i Pierre Bourdieus mest kända begrepp, jag tänker på sådana som habitus, fält och symboliskt- och kulturellt kapital, för dem verkar fascinationen snabbt ha avtagit när begreppen blev allmängods, inte minst på tidningarnas kultursidor, och därmed devalverade på just sitt symboliska kapital. För andra, som tagit sig tid att gå i mer varaktig närkamp med begreppen,  tycks lärdomen däremot stadigt växa om vad man kan göra med de bourdiueska verktygen, specialkonstruerade som de är för studier av den sociala verkligheten.

    "BÄTTRE BALANS I BOENDESAMMANSÄTTNINGEN" - FÖR VEM?: En studie om boendes upplevelser av social mixing i tre bostadsområden i Köpenhamn2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Social mixing går ut på att ’mixa’ befolkning av olika klasser i ett bostadsområde med syfte att förändra områdets sociala sammansättning. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka social mixing som urban utvecklingsstrategi i Köpenhamn utifrån boendes egna upplevelser av sina bostadsområden. I Danmark definieras 29 bostadsområden som ”ghetton” utifrån kriterier rörande de boendes anknytning till arbetsmarknaden, ”icke-västliga” härkomst samt kriminalitet. Semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts med 16 invånare i tre av Köpenhamns marginaliserade bostadsområden och genererat empiri kring deras erfarenheter av social mixing. Empirin samt bostadspolitiken som avser att ”skapa en bättre balans i boendesammansättningen” diskuteras mot bakgrund av tidigare forskning som anammar ett revanchistiskt alternativt emancipatoriskt förhållningssätt till social mixing och gentrifiering. Studien identifierar komplexa aspekter av social mixing; majoritetsbefolkningens än mer privilegierade ställning och ”resurssvagas” försämrade situation på bostadsmarknaden; majoritetsbefolkningens försprång i den lokala maktens rum; minoriteters upplevelser av vissa segregerade rum som fristäder; kampen om rummet när fristäderna utmanas; samt flera aspekter som försvårar möten mellan boende och gentrifierare. Alternativa förhållningssätt identifieras från de boendes berättelser. De empiriska fynden nyanserar dessutom tidigare forskning om betydelsen av ’det egna valet’ i relation till bosättning i marginaliserade bostadsområden.

    Conserving the American Dream: Faith and Politics in the U.S. Heartland2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent decades have seen substantial changes in the U.S. political landscape. One particularly significant development has been the growing influence of a conservative coalition encompassing evangelical Christianity, interventionist foreign policy and neoliberal reform. This study explores the force and internal dynamics of this political assemblage. Based on fieldwork among conservative voters, volunteers and candidates in a small city in northwestern Ohio during a midterm election year, it probes the energy of conservative politics, its modes of attachment and influence, and the organizational forms through which it circulates. Contemporary conservative politics are shown to be centered on a particular epistemological intuition: that to be able to act, one must believe in something. This intuition implies an actively affirmative stance toward “beliefs” and “values.” The study also addresses methodological and analytical challenges that conservative politics pose for anthropological inquiry. It develops a “conversational” analytical attitude, arguing that in order to understand the lasting influence conservatism one has to take seriously the problems that it is oriented toward.

    Finding friends: Collaboration and dialogue as tools for change On the financial practices of institutional investors2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been a shift in ownership on the worlds financial markets, where institutions - such as mutual funds, insurance companies and, not least, pension funds - during the past three decades have emerged as major actors and now dominate corporate ownership world wide. Due to their sheer size public and private pension funds are considered to be the most important and powerful institutional actors on financial markets.

    The fiduciary duties of an institution, - i.e. a responsibility to manage economic assets on behalf of others – sets it apart from individual investors both large and small. In their role as shareholders that manage money on behalf of others, institutional owners work to shape market actors, both corporations in which they invest and other shareholders, and consequently the financial market in a normative way. The active ownership of institutional investors opens up a space where financial actors must consider issues other than the strictly economic ones. This study examines the contours and contents of such a space. By way of ethnographic research the object here is to begin to discern the boundaries; possibilities and limitations of what institutions do, say the do, can and cannot do as powerful actors on the global financial markets.

    Il mondo dell'antropologia2012Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Al libro cui sembra affidare il senso ultimo della propria esperienza di vita e di lavoro Hannerz ha dato un titolo che allude a un duplice mondo. Da una parte, il mondo "interno" dell'antropologia. L'autore guarda qui alle vicende di una disciplina che, avendo per oggetto addirittura la specie umana, si è trovata a occupare la posizione non sempre confortevole del crocevia, e a svolgere la funzione non sempre commendevole dell'ingrediente universale. Dall'altra parte, il mondo "esterno" che l'antropologia si sforza di conoscere e decifrare nelle sue continue trasformazioni. E dunque, di che cosa devono occuparsi nel nostro tempo gli antropologi? A chi si rivolgono? Come viene inteso, e magari frainteso, ciò che dicono? Si condensa in queste pagine, che rimandano a quelle di Clifford Geertz e di Mary Douglas, la convinzione che mai come oggi della prospettiva antropologica abbiamo bisogno, perché meglio di ogni altra può aiutarci a capire - a interpretare - un mondo globale dove i mondi locali rifiutano tenacemente la sottomissione.

    Migraciones, género y trabajo en España: El tránsito obligado de las trabajadoras inmigrantes por el empleo de hogar2012In: Mora, ISSN 1853-001X, Vol. 18, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several researches have shown the importance of domestic work as a main sector of inclusion for migrant women in Spain, mainly during first years of immigration, regardless of their educational level. This concentration, far from responding to labor trajectories of these workers, is the result of the articulation of several variables within the reception context (immigration policies, employment policies, gender relations, labor market characteristics, ideas on domestic work, etc.) and the ways in which migrant families organize productive and reproductive work. In this case, this paper aims to analyze the variables which have influenced the feminization process of migration towards Spain and its connection with the importance of domestic work as the main sector of labor insertion for non-EU migrant women. Afterwards, we summarize some statistical data, and moreover therefore we present the results of an exploratory fieldwork with domestic workers in an irregular situation in Madrid, paying attention to working conditions, relations with employers, gender relations, migration projects, family life and ideas on care work in origin and destination.

    Modernities on the Move2012Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tehran, Delhi, Salvador

    The present volume emanates from three studies of youngsters and young adults in three urban contexts in the world: in Tehran in Iran, Delhi in India, and Salvador in Brazil. To them, global as well as local ideas about modernization, traditionalism and authenticity provide frames for interpreting the development of society and evaluating one’s own life.

    The young people that this volume is concerned with were all born in the 1980s. Today they are adults. They all relate to a globalized market of recognition, but also one of potential resources such as attractive commodities, international jobs, local jobs with an international touch, or international support for local activities through the NGO world. Their rod of reference for judging their own life is global. Their sense of time and progress is related to the important developments of their own countries - internally and in relation to the global context - during their own lifespan and possibly that of their parents. Yet, cultural identity is in all the three cases also marked by a relation to ideas about tradition. Becoming modern may also entail redescribing, reinventing and reviving pasts in which the parents’ generation saw little value. The volume as a whole endeavours to give a contribution to the ethnography of varying cultural conceptualisations of modernity.

    Negotiating impartial indicators: putting transparency into practice in the EU2012In: Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, ISSN 1359-0987, E-ISSN 1467-9655, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 311-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last twenty years, statistics and indicators have come to be closely associated with the notion of transparency. The argument is based on a view that indicators make policy outcomes transparent, as objectively revealed in statistical diagrams and tables. Indicators are, however, politically and culturally loaded. This becomes especially evident in an international organization such as the European Union (EU). The article shows that the production of EU statistics is characterized by a practice of transparency wherein EU bureaucrats must handle two seemingly incompatible logics. There is bureaucratic logic, which refers to the indicators that are seen as representing reality objective and politically neutral. Running parallel is the logic of cultural intimacy, in which the material that is made transparent is based upon what an EU member state wants to keep to itself and not reveal to the entire EU. This practice enables the quest for politically neutral indicators to live on, while at the same time providing room for politically and culturally negotiated indicators.

    Opening the Black Box of Migration: Brokers, the Organization of Transnational Mobility and the Changing Political Economy in Asia2012In: Pacific Affairs, ISSN 0030-851X, Vol. 85, no 1, p. 7-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This special issue takes the migrant broker as a starting point for investigating contemporary regimes of transnational migration across Asia. The articles, which span large parts of Asia—including China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, as well as New Zealand—show that marriage migration, student migration, and various forms of unskilled labour migration, including predominantly male plantation and construction work and female domestic, entertainment, and sex work, are all mediated by brokers. Although much is known about why migrants leave home and what happens to them upon arrival, considerably less is known about the forms of infrastructure that condition their mobility. A focus on brokers is one productive way of opening this “black box” of migration research. The articles in this issue are thus not primarily concerned with the experiences of migrants or in mapping migrant networks per se, but rather in considering how mobility is made possible and organized by brokers, most notably in the process of recruitment and documentation. Drawing from this evidence, we argue that in contrast to the social network approach, a focus on the migrant broker offers a critical methodological vantage point from which to consider the shifting logic of contemporary migration across Asia. In particular, paying ethnographic attention to brokers illuminates the broader infrastructure that makes mobility possible while revealing that distinctions between state and market, between formal and informal, and between altruistic and profit-oriented networks are impossible to sustain in practice.
