Abstract [en]

Contemporary ethnicity research agrees that ethnicity, like other identity categories, is a social construct.In this article I aim to illustrate how youth in a segregated junior high school on the outskirts of Stockholm,humorously use the term import to categorize newly arrived immigrants. Although the term refers tophysical movement it is mainly concerned with matters of style and behavior. The term is, however, open,fluid and inclusive as the youth themselves can, in a playful manner, move in and out of the category. Theoverarching study, of which this article is part, is based on a yearlong fieldwork following two eight gradeclasses where all the students have the experience of migration within their families.

Abstract [sv]

Så gott som all samtida etnicitetsforskning utgår från att etnicitet, likt andra identitetskategorier, är socialtskapad. I denna studie visar jag hur ungdomar i en högstadieskola i utkanten av Stockholm använderden lokalt skapade benämningen import för att humoristiskt benämna människor som har migrerat.Trots att import till viss del syftar på en nylig territoriell förflyttning handlar benämningen framföralltom stil och beteenden. Det är en kategori som är öppen, flytande, rörlig och till viss del inkluderande dåungdomar på ett lekfullt sätt kan ta sig ut och in ur kategorin. Studien bygger på ett årslångt fältarbete itvå åttondeklasser där samtliga ungdomar inom sina familjer har erfarenhet av migration.
