    Temporary international mobility, Family Timing, Dual Career and family democracy. A case of Swedish medical professionals2018In: Migration Letters, ISSN 1741-8984, E-ISSN 1741-8992, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 99-111Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article, based on 43 narrative interviews with Swedish physicians and molecular biologists, discusses family timing and family management as crucial factors in temporary international mobility of highly skilled professionals. In the narratives, the family often created a kind of inertia and complication for a prolonged period of working abroad. The interviewees’ dreams and wishes had to be negotiated with a partner pursuing his/her own career, as well as the rest of the family, and there were also a lot of logistics and practicalities to take care of. However, mobility was also regarded as an amazing opportunity for the whole family to be together and to learn about new cultural and social contexts. In several narratives, the temporary and thus “parenthetic” living abroad influenced the otherwise cherished ideals of dual careers, equal gender contract and a respectful parenthood.

    Tillhör vi Sveriges framtid?: En etnologisk studie av vardag och hållbarhet i norrländsk glesbygd2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation concerns everyday life and sustainability in sparsely populated parts of Northern Sweden. The aim is to study how sustainability is constructed, experienced, practised and perceived in a field of tension between local everyday life and political discourses.

    Apart from written material, the study is based on interviews and observations performed in the municipalities Strömsund and Örnsköldsvik. Empirical themes include everyday life movements and means of transport, work and spare time practices, and experiences of time. The central theoretical concepts used are everyday life, provinces of meanings, typifications, community, place and policy. These concepts shape the analysis of processes pertaining to space and movement, work and leisure, time and tempo.

    The study shows gaps between sustainability policies and local experiences of sustainability. In order to highlight complications like the ones between the center and the periphery, polices and lived experiences, I have stressed the importance of the social dimension of sustainability. It is nevertheless important to nuance the concept of social sustainability since it carries an ambiguity, for example in terms of collisions with other dimensions of sustainability. Socially good life styles have a tendency to collide with the ecological definitions of sustainability. The emphasis on the social dimensions has been done in order to draw attention to unfair effects from a time-space perspective, and to point at the problem with urban norms in policies on sustainability.

    Dancing at the Crossroads: Memory and Mobility in Ireland2007Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    "Dancing at the crossroads" used to be an opportunity for young people to meet and enjoy themselves on mild summer evenings in the Irish countryside until this practice was banned by the Public Dance Halls Act of 1935. Now a key metaphor in Irish cultural and political life, "dancing at the crossroads" also crystallizes the argument of this book: Irish dance, from Riverdance (the commericial show) to competitive dancing and dance theatre, conveys that Ireland is in a crossroads situations. Irish dance, with a firm base in a distinctly Irish tradition, is becoming a prominent part of European modernity. While this book highlights the captivating tensions and ties surrounding debates on Irish dance, it also aims to extend broader understandings of place, mobility and rooted cosmopolitanism.

    Abstract [en]

    This introductory chapter provides a critical review of the study of emotions in anthropology, sociology, psychology and cultural studies. It discusss cultural and social science research on emotions in relation to the major topics of the Reader: opening with the study of emotions in terms of culture, biology and ecology, and moving on to captivating cases of happiness, fear and envy, as well as to investigations into love and hate; anger, shame and grief, desire and expectations, and the emotional self and identity. Based on classic articles on emotions, the Reader applies a cross-cultural perspective which reveals a whole range of new issues in the study of emotions brought out in commissioned articles. This chapter offers an analytical synthesis of the study of emotions, which will show the force, richness and omnipresence of emotions in modern social life.

    Longing for the Land: Emotions, Memory, and Nature in Irish Travel Advertisements2007In: Identities: Global Studies in Culture and Power, ISSN 1070-289X, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 527-541Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With its large diaspora, Ireland has a long tradition of travel ranging from emigration to return migration, expatriate visits as well as tourism. Although Irish tourism increased substantially with the climax of the so-called Celtic Tiger in the early 1990s, Ireland was a major tourist destination even before that. This article explores emotions, memory and nature in images (in travel catalogues and on the Internet) advertising Ireland in a global context. The images target Irish expatriates, indigenous tourists and non-Irish tourists in Europe, the United States and Australia. Images featuring pastoral landscapes, rural harmony and dramatic cliffs can be emotionally evocative in different ways, exemplifying people’s social relationships to their environment. Central themes in the images are expatriate emotions of displacement, longing and nostalgia often connected with Irish nationalism while at the same time managing to include non-Irish people. This confirms the notion of images as ambiguous, yet points at the possibility of steering the viewer’s attention through a caption including “home” and “our land”. The article also focuses on expatriare emotions that recur in the narrative of Irish travel advertisements in an increasingly globalized world.

    Jag flyttar aldrig från Gröna linjen: En studie om identitet och plats2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Tunnelbanan knyter ihop stora delar av staden. Det finns människor som gärna vill bo kvar runt den t-banelinje de bor på. I denna uppsats analyseras intervjuer med fem personer som bor i stadsdelar dit den Gröna t-banelinjen går. Det undersöks hur t-banan medverkar till att bygga upp identiteten var och en skapat sig under tiden som boende på platsen. Undersökningen tar reda på hur varje person blivit en del av platsen de bor på, och hur platsen har blivit en del av dem. Med hjälp av intervjuerna tas det också reda på vad tunnelbanan kan ha för betydelse utöver att vara ett transportmedel.

    Studiens resultat visar att tunnelbanan bidragit till platstillhörighet, trivsel och identitetsbygge, men att platsen kan vara rörlig. Personerna kan känna tillhörighet till flera platser, genom möjlighet till rörlighet som tunnelbanan bidragit med. Resultatet visar också att tunnelbanan kan betyda något mer än att vara ett transportmedel, den är såväl landmärke som markör för urbanitet.

    Public museum space: How cultural policies and democratic ideals materialize in the public spaces of the Swedish History Museum 1943–20132016In: Nordisk Museologi, ISSN 1103-8152, no 1, p. 138-147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The research subject is the Swedish History Museum in Stockholm as a public institution between 1943 and 2013. I examine how public spaces in the museum body are designed in relation to cultural policy objectives and the museum’s vision of a democratic, inclusive museum. However, the focus is not on the museum’s exhibits, but on other public spaces visitors encounter in the museum, mainly the entrance, the shop and children’s spaces. These spaces tend to be invisible in the museum hierarchy, and their practices are rarely observed in museum studies. Main research questions are: How are democratic ideals materialized and expressed over time? Which publics are created by the public spaces?

    Solidaritet som grundfundament: En studie om tillit i den autonoma vänstern2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate what underlying causes drive people to take part in the Swedish autonomous left-wing movement. The autonomous left-wing movement is an extraparliamentary mob, in Sweden often attributed in negative terms, considered as extremists. Interviewing six activists has given me the chance to better understand the movement in terms of ideology as well as understanding their lack of reliability in the Swedish government and other social structures. The study also shows a complexity in the relationship between the interviewees and fascists, as well as in the Swedish police and the Swedish migration office, which is based on a combination of ideological values as well as a lack of trust to the Swedish system as a whole.

    Demands and Challenges of Internationalization in the Swedish Humanities in the Era of Academic Capitalism2020In: Zoon Politikon, ISSN 2082-7806, no 11, p. 232-256Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes strategies and practices among Swedish Humanities scholars in relation to the demands of “internationalization” and in a framework of academic capitalism. The article is based on 30 qualitative interviews with scholars in philosophy, Romance languages and history. There are signs of cognitive dissonance, with conflicting set of norms. Benefits for the academic CV, along with a discipline’s ideals, traditions and its perceived role in society are the main context in which internationalization is understood, implemented and contested, with individual variations in international practices as e.g. international mobility, networking or publication strategies.

    Abstract [en]

    We were attending a conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia. It was an important conference in our field; a good opportunity to present our research on highly skilled migration and to exchange ideas with other scholars. But a visit to the Old Town of Dubrovnik, a magnificent site listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List (and a filming location in the TV series Game of Thrones) was also a powerful incentive to come here. One of our research colleagues, who had previously lived in Dubrovnik, took us on her own city tour in which she presented both interesting facts and personal memories. We admired the scenic views, we noted historically important places and still visible traces of the recent war, while at the same time talking about the conference sessions we had just attended, recent turns in migration studies, and joint writing projects. The city walk became alternately sight-seeing, a social occasion and a scholarly conversa-tion, in which we performed our professions while to all intents and purposes acting as many of the other “tourists” around us.

    Knowledge Transfer Work: A Case of Internationally Mobile Medical Professionals2020In: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 36-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the relationship between highly skilled international mobility and knowledge by focussing on knowledge transfer work. Empirically, this study is based on interviews of professionals in the Swedish medical field who returned to Sweden after a period of work in other countries. The medical field harbours many transnationally valid competences and standardised lines of work, but even in this field, knowledge transfer is a process requiring effort, skills, negotiation, translation and adjustment to the specific organisational and cultural contexts. The studied professionals’ knowledge transfer work showed a spectrum, ranging from smooth, almost friction-free transfers to the ones where much translation and transformation was required, depending on the context and the professional’s status in the workplace. The professionals also developed and made use of knowledge transfer skills, such as the ability to observe, analyse and adjust to cultural differences between workplaces, healthcare systems or academic systems, as well as the ability to translate knowledge to make it relevant and viable in the specific context.

    Abstract [en]

    Cultural Perspectives on Highly Skilled Mobility

    This special issue is based on a panel at the 33rd Ethnology and Folklore Conference in Copenhagen in 2015, and focuses on cultural perspective on international mobility of highly educated employees. The articles’ joint analytical input can be summarized in Russell King’s (2002) phrase “double embeddedness of migration”. Everyday life and people’s narrated experiences are at the heart of the articles, but the focus is also set on the intersection of structural conditions and individual life circumstances. Mobility across national borders contributes with new experiences and knowledge and has different kinds of impact on social status and the individual’s resources acquired by education. This is something the voluntarily mobile have in common with those who are forced to leave their countries of origin. However, there are crucial differences in how highly skilled professionals are received and regarded in the countries they come to, the status they can achieve and the framework within which they can make use of their assets.

    Inre utlänningskontroll: En etnologisk studie av svenska polisers berättelser om och erfarenheter av arbetet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att studera svenska polisers berättelser om och erfarenheter av inre utlänningskontroll. Jag har dels varit intresserad av hur poliserna diskursivt konstruerar bilder av sig själva samt dem som ska hittas, men också hur poliserna förhåller sig till uppgiften att utföra inre utlänningskontroll. Jag har utfört tre intervjuer med poliser som arbetar inom gränspolisen samt en kompletterande intervju med en närpolis. Jag har utgått från ett diskursanalytiskt angreppssätt som betonar att våra sätt att tala på spelar en aktiv roll i skapandet och förändringen av vår omvärld, våra identiteter och sociala relationer. I den här studien har det framkommit att intervjupersonerna förhåller sig till en politisk/juridisk diskurs som gör deras arbete betydelsefullt. Deras arbete styrs av hur lagarna ser ut och påverkar även hur de uppfattar subjektpositioner och därmed vilka de ska hitta. Genom att konstruera gruppen av ”stackare” kan arbetet med att utföra inre utlänningskontroll legitimeras. Intervjupersonerna är medvetna om att olika begrepp kan användas för att föra olika politiska strategier och diskussioner, men vittnar dock om en känsla av att de själva är ”neutrala”. De gör det de blir tillsagda eftersom de betraktar sig som under polisorganisationens ledning, som i sin tur betraktas som en institution under regeringen/riksdagen.

    Jag tror inte på sådant… men…: En studie i framställningen av övernaturliga berättelser2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien undersöker berättandet om övertron och hur, ofta vardagliga, händelser tillskrivs det övernaturliga. Genom narrativanalys med framför allt Labovs modell och jämförelser tillfolktron söks förståelse för memoratens framställning och poänger. Uppsatsen söker svar på hur berättare av självupplevda händelser framställer en händelse som övernaturlig, hur berättaren försäkrar publiken om sin tolkning, samt vad det är som gör händelsen värd att berätta. För att närma sig detta så har ett skriftligt material samlats in där frågelistan Det oförklarliga (NM237) utgör det huvudsakliga materialet med viss komplettering från socialamedier. Undersökningen har visat på hur övertrosframställningar ofta är beroende på tidigare associationer och intressen, att det som tillskrivs det övernaturliga ofta är av en oförklarlig eller allvarsam karaktär samt att berättandet kan förstås både som en form av kommunikation och en bearbetning av skeenden som annars är obegripliga för berättaren.
