    Enahanda läsning: En queer tolkning av romancegenren2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral thesis investigates popular romance, a mass-cultural genre with a large female audience. Popular romance is often considered ”lowbrow” and is referred to by terms such as ”porn” and ”garbage”. The female reader of this so called “sentimental trash” is often portrayed as naïve and unworldly. The thesis makes this derogatory view of the genre its point of departure, to investigate what cultural understandings of gender and sexuality the critique against popular romance entails. The thesis further investigates how these conceptions of gender and sexuality deviate from and challenge a culturally promoted and normative sexuality.

    The thesis consists of six chapters. The first chapter describes the selection of the empirical material and the theoretical and methodological framework. The empirical material consists of the three novels in the popular series Fifty Shades of Grey and the four novels and five films in the popular series Twilight. The thesis places itself within the field of feminist cultural studies and queer theory. It makes use of the concept of masturbation (both literal and figurative) as an analytical entry point and as a method focusing on the “here and now” of romance reading.

    The second chapter contextualizes the study by defining the term “popular romance” and by providing a brief historical overview of the genre. Previous research on popular romance is presented and discussed in relation to the derogatory view of the genre.

    The third chapter studies the Swedish media commentaries on Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight to define how the rejected romance reader is conceptualized, and how this romance reader is presumed to be reading. This “romance reader” is thereafter discussed in relation to the Western historical discourse on masturbation, “female illness” and (women’s) private reading. The chapter closes with a discussion on the form of reading that the romance reader is associated with. This self-immersed, excessive and over-invested reading form is defined as “masturbatory”.

    The fourth chapter explores the act of romance reading when defined as a sexual activity. The romance community is compared to the “second wave” feminism of the 1970s in order to demonstrate how the genre establishes a separatist female community where relations, positions, and identifications are in motion, revealing both homoerotic and autoerotic elements to this homosocial context.

    In the fifth chapter, a close reading of the material is performed with a focus on the “here and now” of the reading situation. The dichotomy of desiring subject and desired object is problematized in relation to looks and gaze. The thesis argues that the romance text uses detailed and intimate descriptions to instill a sexual charge and to freeze the flow of the storyline in order to make room for constant erotic contemplation. These “frozen moments” and the repetitiveness of the genre are discussed in relation to theories of queer temporality. The romance text constructs a room “outside of time” that privileges the overwhelming pleasures of the “here and now”. This liminal room is not only available for the heroine and hero of the story, but for the romance reader as well.

    The sixth and final chapter ties together the main arguments of the thesis in an overarching discussion on how conceiving romance reading as a form of masturbation challenges previous research on popular romance and the gendering of and contempt for mass culture.

    Gender, Feminist, and Queer Archaeologies: USA Perspective2014In: Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology / [ed] Claire Smith, New York: Springer-Verlag New York, 2014, p. 2988-2997Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This entry presents a brief history of the emergence of feminism, gender, and queer in North American archaeology, which, along with the United Kingdom and Scandinavia to a lesser degree, represents the geographic origin and center of such work. The key concepts as used by archaeologists are defined; the relationship among them is explored and shown to be both problematic and productive. The place of feminism, gender, and queer within North American archaeology today is characterized and, finally, likely avenues of future research are suggested. The greatest impact of feminist, gender, and queer archaeologies has been on the authority of positivist approaches, the objectivity of interpretation, equity issues within the profession, collaborative knowledge making, and the understanding of key archaeological interpretive concepts.

    Abstract [sv]

    Yvonne Hirdman introducerade genusbegreppet i svensk feministisk forskning och blev Sveriges första professor i genushistoria. I självbiografin Medan jag var ung skriver hon om hur vägen fram till raketkarriären inom akademin varit allt annat än rak. Hirdmans så kallade ”egohistoria” är fascinerande och underhållande läsning om hur 70-talets kvinnorörelse intog universitetsvärlden, men beskrivningarna av dagens feministiska forskning är lättvindig och raljant.

    "Det är ju väldigt mycket skägg": Om svenska kvinnliga ölbryggares yrkeserfarenheter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is a small-scale interview study which explores Swedish female beer brewers’ experiences as a minority in a male-dominated workplace. It focuses on the lived experiences of the brewers. A feminist phenomenology as well as organizational theories, the idea of homosociality and the notion of cultural dominance provide the theoretical framework which is used for the analysis of the brewers’ experiences of their profession. In my analysis, I conclude that there is certain gender problematic in their workplace and that gender is marked and matters in certain ways in the brewing business. I have shown how they reflect upon themselves as women in a gender-segregated workplace and how bodily substantiality and phenomenological orientations manifest themselves in a beer brewing context. My interviewees showed different strategies to succeed as women in this business and signs of resistance to a negative image of female brewers.

    "Starka nog att kunna skydda sig själva": Svenska kvinnors kritik av nattarbetsförbudet 1907-19132017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka svenska kvinnors kritik av det industriella nattarbetsförbud som infördes 1909. Hur argumenterade kvinnor ur arbetarrörelsens respektive den borgerliga kvinnorörelsen, och hur skilde sig kritiken åt i fråga om argumentation och huvudsakliga motiv? Hur svarade man på diskursen om kvinnors särskilda skyddsbehov? Det teoretiska ramverk som fått informera analysen har varit marxistisk feminism, arbetskritik och Butlers teoretisering av sårbarhet. Med hjälp av ett diskurskritiskt angreppssätt studeras och jämförs artiklar publicerade i tidskrifterna Morgonbris och Dagny. Den metodologiska utgångspunkten är att studera problemframställningar av förbudet i fråga, och studien visar att de båda tidskrifterna skilde sig radikalt åt beträffande argumentation och motiv, även om de huvudsakligen tyckte lika i sak. I analysen presenteras några centrala argumentationslinjer inom respektive riktning. De särskilda aspekter som tas upp är synen på arbete och på den arbetandes skyddsbehov under den tidiga industrialismen, och vad dessa skilda förståelser får för betydelse för emancipatorisk praktik.

    Synliggörandet av sexköparna i dagens Sverige: En diskursanalys2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns mycket information om de som prostituerar sig och prostitutioner, men sexköparna är inte synliga på samma sätt. Huvudsyftet med uppsatsen är att synliggöra sexköparna i dagens Sverige. Det har gjorts genom att undersöka diskursen kring dem. Studien har även tre delsyften:

    1. Åskådliggöra de sexköpare som finns
    2. Påvisa att utbudet av prostitutioner beror på efterfrågan
    3. Belysa maktaspekten

    Uppsatsens material består i huvudsak av böcker publicerade mellan 2005-2011 och diskursanalys har använts som metod för att undersöka dem närmare. Studien kretsar delvis kring maktaspekten i förhållande till prostitutioner. Den åskådliggör även hur diskursen kring sexköparna är inkonsekvent, i förhållande till verkligheten, då diskursen osynliggör andra sexköpare, förutom män.

    Högskolestiftelser. Förslaget att driva svenska universitet i stiftelseform ­öppnar för bolagisering. Men det är ingen riktig utredning, utan en politisk pamflett utan ­eftertanke. Privatisering av universitet hotar både oberoendet, forskningskvaliteten och samhällsnyttan, skriver 36 forskare vid svenska högskolor och universitet.

    ”Han sa att det är som Arlamjölk och någon annan sorts mjölk. Båda är mjölk men folk föredrar Arla.”: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med nyanlända kvinnliga akademiker om arbetsintegration i Sverige.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats syftar till att, genom kvalitativa intervjuer, lyfta fram och undersöka fyra nyanlända kvinnliga akademikers erfarenheter av arbetsintegration i Sverige. Vilka hinder och möjligheter det innebär samt hur dessa förstås i relation till föreställningar om ’svenskhet’? Studien vilar på ett postkolonialt feministiskt teoretiskt ramverk med fokus på materiellt skillnadsskapande och ’svensk’ identitet samt en forskningsbakgrund som belyser utlandsfödda kvinnor som en marginaliserad grupp på svensk arbetsmarknad. Materialet visar på många dimensioner av hinder och möjligheter där informanterna upplever svårigheter att ta sig in på svensk arbetsmarknad. Identifierade hinder är: att inte kunna svenska, att inte ha ett ’svenskt’ socialt nätverk, att inte känna till relevant information gällande arbetsmarknadens funktioner och att inte ha en utbildning och erfarenhet som värdesätts. Materialet visar tendenser till att svensk arbetsmarknad är uppbyggd och anpassad efter en önskvärd och normativ ’svenskhet’ som omöjligen alla kan uppnå. De som inte passar in i mallen, ’de andra’, förväntas anpassa sig och inta andra ’svenska’ identiteter och positioner i arbetsmarknadens periferi. Detta som en del av ett reproducerande strukturellt skillnadsskapande.

    Materials of affect: Miniatures in the Scandinavian Late Iron Age (550-1050 AD)2013In: Archaeology After Interpretation: Returning Materials to Archaeological Theory / [ed] Benjamin Alberti, Andrew Meirion Jones, Joshua Pollard, Walnut Creek, Ca: Left Coast Press Inc., 2013Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses Scandinavian gold-foil figures—small human-like figures hammered or cut out of thin foil—from the early part of the Scandinavian Late Iron Age (AD 550—1050) from a relational perspective. Earlier interpretations largely approach them as symbols and representations, which downplays their practical or performative role and results in static or embalmed objects. In this paper I discuss the affective dimensions of the figures, as well as some of the myriad rhizomatic relations that were generated through the processes of manufacture, manipulation, and visual encounter. I will argue that during the Late Iron Age in Scandinavia certain human beings and gold-foil figures were ontological equivalents, and that gold-foil figures go far beyond our contemporary understanding of representations.

    Is everything compatible? A feminist critique of Hearn's composite approach to men and masculinity2018In: Australian feminist studies (Print), ISSN 0816-4649, E-ISSN 1465-3303Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since its emergence in the late 1980s, research on men and masculinity has expanded considerably into an established area at the intersection of sociology, gender studies and related disciplines. There is now a wealth of empirical research but the theoretical debates have largely centred on Connell’s notion of hegemonic masculinity. This article focuses instead on the theoretical contribution of Jeff Hearn, arguably one of the central figures within critical studies on men and masculinities over the last few decades. The article identifies the main tenets of Hearn’s theoretical writing and tracks its development over time, and offers a critical discussion of Hearn’s theoretical position. The critique focuses on ambiguous treatments of central concepts and argues that tensions between perspectives such as materialist analysis, queer theory and intersectionality are not fully acknowledged in Hearn’s work.

    Abstract [en]

    Hip hop has grown into a worldwide genre of popular music inrecent decades. While the genre is often associated with sexism and homophobia, this article examines how masculinity is constructed in rap lyrics. It focuses on two central themes in contemporary configurations of masculinity: violence and parenting. The material consists of rap lyrics from 39 rap artists in Sweden during the last two decades. It is analysed from post structuralist and intersectional perspectives, with a discourse analysis combining broad thematic coding with close readings of selected extracts. The article shows how violence is both connected to class and racial dimensions of inequality, but simultenously shared as a gender norm across such differences. Violence is both reinforced as a norm of masculinity, but also called into question through various means, such as use of irony. The analysed lyrics contain descriptions of parent-child relations from the perspective of both positions. These narratives display a similar ambivalence; they simultenously hold fathers to task for perceived parenting failures and reinforce problematic patterns of masculine parenting. In sum, the article shows how violence and parenting are important loci for contemporary configurations of masculinity. The intersectional and poststructuralist theoretical perspectives, which have been relatively downplayed in studies on men and masculinity, enable attention to the ambivalences of gender discourses, which often contain elements of both reinforcement and subversion.

    Vem är teori? Ett normkritiskt pedagogiskt perspektiv på sociologisk teori2018In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 55, no 1, p. 75-91Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sociological theory is a central part of the sociology discipline, and courses on sociological theory are found on all levels of university teaching in sociology at Swedish universities. However, while sociologists have successfully uncovered power structures in various domains of social life, we have been more reluctant to examine our own teaching practices. In particular, sociological theory has been pinpointed as an area where men’s dominance often perseveres. This is in stark contrast to international research on exclusion and inclusion in processes of canon formation, which shows how there have always been important sociological theorists who have not been white men, but that they have been more or less written out of history. Drawing on such international research on inclusion and exclusion in the construction of sociological theory, as well as on norm-critical pedagogy, and on a mapping of the curriculum at one of Sweden’s universities, this article identifies key aspects in the quest for a more inclusive curriculum.

    Kroppslig beredskap och känslomässigt avstånd: Tre kvinnors erfarenheter av förkroppsligat emotionellt arbete2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är att anlägga ett feministiskt fenomenologiskt perspektiv på kvinnliga omsorgsarbetares levda erfarenhet av att arbeta med kroppen på andra kroppar, och därmed undersöka informanternas erfarenhet av gränsdragning och arbetets påverkan på den egna kroppen. Omsorgsarbetet innefattar komplexa kroppsliga och känslomässiga arbetsuppgifter, och arbetets höga risk för skada utgör den främsta anledningen till att arbetare funderar på att lämna yrket (Stranz, 2013, s. 176). Genom semistrukturerade djupintervjuer med tre kvinnor med erfarenhet av omsorgsarbete, samt en analys av dessa utifrån feministisk fenomenologi och den sociologiska termen body work, visar undersökningen att informanterna utför förkroppsligat emotionellt arbete. Arbetet ställer krav på att kunna förkroppsliga flera motsägelsefulla roller, och detta tycks försvåras när informanterna ser sig sedda som någonting annat än som professionell omsorgsarbetare. För informanterna är en central strategi för att etablera distans till arbetet att förkroppsliga professionalitet. Uppsatsens slutsats är att omsorgsarbetet genererar materialiserade effekter på informanternas levda kroppar; inte bara i form av observerbara skador utan också genom att påverka själva relationen mellan kroppen och jaget. Omsorgsarbetet tycks påverka hur vi rör oss, hur vi förstår våra kroppar, hur vi använder dem och hur vi sätter gränser runt och med dem.

    Gender, mobility and livelihoods in an Ethiopian pre-revolutionary town2012In: Locus: revista de história, ISSN 1413-3024, Vol. 35, no 2, p. 203-214Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the interrelationship between gender, ethnicity, migration/mobility and livelihood opportunities in the urban area of Shashemene in Southern Ethiopia in the period immediately prior to the end of the Ethiopian Empire in 1974. The major finding is that gender is a determining social factor in the mobility and livelihood opportunities of individuals. A striking result from the study is that livelihood alternatives were “urban” to a relatively small extent. Most persons found a living in activities that are to be found in rural as well as in urban areas. For men, ethnicity provides a mediating factor whereas the mobility and livelihood patterns for women are less differentiated by ethnic identity. Individual mobility is characterised both by urban-urban and rural-urban movements. In a study carried out in 1973, women had spent less number of years migrating when they arrived at Shashemene compared to their male counterparts. Similarly, the average number of new places, where they resided for at least one year, was fewer for women than for men. Our results also indicate differences in the migration/mobility rates of women and men across ages. Women’s migration seems to drop abruptly after the age 25. In general, the mobile period of life was shorter for women than for men.

    Marking the Unmarked: Theorizing Intersectionality and Lived Embodiment through Mammoth and Antichrist2016In: Illdisciplined Gender: Engaging Questions of Nature/Culture and Transgressive Encounters / [ed] Jacob Bull, Margaretha Fahlgren, Springer, 2016, p. 99-113Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article confronts the notion of intersectionality with its conditions of materiality and embodiment. Understanding intersectionality as an overarching framework for analyzing power imbalances, we locate the body at the core of intersectionality as the site or situation where intersectional identities emerge and are made manifest. Our point of departure is that identities are always embodied, socially, culturally, spatially, and historically situated, and in continuous relational becoming. Considering the relevance of the body in intersectional structures of domination, our analysis aims to elaborate on the ways in which categories of identity are inscribed precisely as bodily markers and reinforced through embodiment.

    We discuss and develop the notion of intersectionality in light of lived embodiment. To facilitate our discussion, we use cultural representations, namely, the two contemporary films Mammoth by Lukas Moodysson (2009) and Antichrist by Lars von Trier (2009). The films serve as a particular lens through which intersections of power and dominance are brought to light as embodied, relational, and dynamic. By analyzing scenes from Mammoth and Antichrist, we highlight how intersectional identities are conditioned by and condition embodiment. Our analysis underlines how identity categorizations are inscribed on and in the body and how lived embodiment constitutes the very site in which seemingly stable identity categories intersect and have the potential of being both reproduced and transformed. This theoretical position not only brings to light bodies already marked by intersecting strands of oppression and marginalization but also makes visible the intersectional embodiment of privileged and seemingly unmarked bodies—it marks the unmarked.

    ”Number one: you can never have sex”: En analys av sexualitet och genus i tre skräckfilmer mellan 1997-2017.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen undersöker jag om Carol Clovers teorier från boken Men, Women and Chain saws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film fortfarande går att applicera på filmer som kom ut efter det att boken publicerats 1992. De två frågorna jag vill besvara är huruvida Clovers text fortfarande går att applicera, samt hur sexualitet och genus representeras i filmerna jag valt att använda. Mina teoretiska utgångspunkter är ”The final girl”, som är taget ur Clovers bok, samt queerteori. Min metod är att analysera filmerna utifrån Clover för att se hur sexualitet och genus representeras, samtidigt som jag då ser huruvida Clovers text fortfarande är aktuell. De filmerna jag använder mig av är Scream 2 (1997), Teeth (2007), och The Babysitter (2017). Jag visar på att Clovers bok fortfarande är aktuell och går att applicera på filmer producerade nyligen. Jag visar även på att sexualitet och genus är konstant närvarande teman i de tre skräckfilmerna jag använder på ett eller annat sätt, där jag även visar på hur representation av sexualitet och genus har ändrats med tiden och ser olika ut i de tre filmerna.

    Abstract [en]

    Even though several researchers in gender studies of today are concerned with other central organizing aspects than gender, the social category age is disregarded. When it comes to age the naturalized norm in gender studies is the category the adult. In this thesis I investigate assumptions concerning the two age categories children and adults in five different newspapers and magazines, using an intersectional perspective and a queer theoretical framework. My investigation shows that the category age intra-act with other power structures in the construction of both children and adults. The adult perspective is more or less one-sided, and the view on age is primarily essentialistic. Adults are considered naturally superior, while children are dehumanized and constructed as the right and property of adults. Adultness is primarily linked to reproduction and (full-time) professional work, and adults should according to the hegemonic discourse be loyal to employers and other adults, not to children.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the aphorisms of Klara Johanson (1875–1948) are related to the history of the genre. I argue that her aphorisms should be examined in the light of the romantic aphorism and be considered as a contribution to aesthetics. The etymology of the term ”aesthetics” – sensuous perception – foregrounds the body, as does the earliest uses of the term ”aphorism” (Aphorismoi was the title of Hippocrates’ famous compendium of medical propositions and recommendations). The meaning of the term was later transferred from medicine to other disciplines, most notably politics, drawing on the analogy of the relation between the health of the physical body and the health of the state (connected by the theory of the four humours). Of course, by the beginning of the 20th century, that theory was no longer valid. However, the connection between the body and the state had endured, and was now understood in terms of the romantic concept of the ”organism”. Johanson’s aphorisms unite these two aspects: the body as sensuous perception and the body related to the state. According to Gerhard Neumann’s definition, the form of the romantic aphorism is a representation of conflict between abstract, mathematical truth, and personal, sensuous truth. This conflict informs Johanson’s aphorisms, although her modern take on the romantic conflict was more in line with the Italian philosopher Benedetto Croce, whose works Johanson introduced and translated into Swedish. In his view, aesthetics should precede logic, since individual perception precedes any understanding of a pure concept. I argue that Johanson’s aphorisms constitute a political statement, situating the individual truth at the centre of experience, and defending the need to take personal differences into account in order to heal the social ”organism” of society. To think with all your senses is to accrue historical knowledge; an aesthetic method with political implications.

    Den svenska 1840-talsromanen som nationell kartografi2016In: Samlaren: tidskrift för svensk litteraturvetenskaplig forskning, ISSN 0348-6133, E-ISSN 2002-3871, Vol. 137, p. 58-86Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish novel of the 1840s as national cartography

    The Swedish novel of the 1840s maps the nation. Whereas the novels of the 1830s advocate a predominantly cultural nationalism, the nationalism in the novels of the 1840s connects to the national territory. Inspired by Franco Moretti, a map is used as an analytical tool marking out travel routes in Sweden and Norway in 15 novels by the best-selling authors Fredrika Bremer (1801–1865), Sophie von Knorring (1797–1848), Emilie Flygare-Carlén (1807–1892), and C.J.L. Almqvist (1793–1866). The map shows that the national territory is unevenly covered: most of the novels are set in the provinces surrounding the lake Vättern, possibly creating a new water centre for the nation, while Dalecarlia, later to become the ”core province” of Sweden, is still considered too wild and remote. Furthermore, the map shows that borders become the focus of attention as territory gains importance. Geography teaching is a recurrent theme in the novels, and the national map is even portrayed as the body of Mother Svea—national boundaries conjure up an eroticised unity, a body evoking love. Nevertheless, the imagined geographies connecting cultural nationalism to territory also have the paradoxical effect of constructing the provinces as separate national communities. Therefore, external as well as internal borders appear as important narrative sites. Nationalist thought at the beginning of the 19th century was often part of a liberal movement developing the idea of citizenship, and in these novels the borders instigate narratives of citizenship. The borders intensify the promises of the nation-state to the citizen: the border is the site where bodies that do not comply with societal norms can find a place to make their contribution to the nation. However, the border is also the site where citizenship is contested, as unstable law enforcement exposes the characters to lethal violence.

    Nils and the Social Mother as a Migrating Goose2018In: TijdSchrift voor Skandinavistiek, ISSN 0168-2148, E-ISSN 1875-9505, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 117-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This contribution explores the ideals of citizenship in Selma Lagerlöf’s Nils Holgersson’s Wonderful Journey through Sweden (1906-1907).1 The social morals taught by Akka the goose – possibly one of the world’s most famous female leaders – influenced Swedish school children and children around the world for decades. The analysis shows that Akka is an example of Ellen Key’s concept of the ‘Social Mother’, promoting early ‘folk ideology’. Taking the cue from Sara Ahmed’s theory of ‘affective economies’, I investigate the function of fear in building a nation. A comparison with Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book (1894-1895) makes clear that although power struggle is a common theme in these two children’s books, fear has an equally important but opposing role in each book in the founding of society. In The Jungle Book, fear installs a constitutional order and guarantees Man’s supremacy over the animals, while fear in Nils Holgersson fosters community across different species; in Lagerlöf’s affective economy, fear does indeed establish boundaries, but also functions as a means to transgression and as a source of social virtues. Contrary to Berggren and Trägårdh’s claim that independence is at the core of ‘the Swedish ideology’, the experience of dependence and fear is necessary to achieve a responsible form of independence. Nils’s progress reflects a psychologically informed process of development of moral virtues in several steps, initially motivated by self-preservation, then self-assertion, habit, and finally by an ethics of love. The story also portrays different forms of government, opting for democratic rule that is intent on creating a home for the people. The nation-building function of fear is to balance the power struggle for a citizen’s right to recognition with an insight into the vulnerability of life and the need for transgressive love.
