    In Rhizomia: Actors, Networks and Resilience in Urban Landscapes2008Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    With accelerating urbanization it is crucial to understand how urban ecosystems play a part in generating ecosystem services for urban dwellers, such as clean water, spaces for recreation, stress relief and improved air quality. An equally important question relate to who gets to enjoy these benefits, i.e. the distribution of ecosystem services, and how issues of power and equity influence the management of ecosystems. Through case studies from the urban landscape of Stockholm, this doctoral thesis engages with these perspectives through combining ecological theory with social theory, including social network analysis, actor-network theory and social movement theory. Strategies for how to improve urban ecosystem management are presented along with frameworks for how to analyze issues of power and equity in relation to natural resource management.

    Paper I shows that ecosystem management can be studied through analyzing the structure of social networks, i.e. the patterns of relations between agencies, stake-holders and user groups. Paper II and Paper III analyze, based on a network survey of 62 civil society organizations and in-depth interviews, a transformational process of how an urban local movement managed to protect a large urban green area from exploitation (The Stockholm National Urban Park). Paper IV discusses, based on several case studies from Stockholm, a conducive network structure for linking managers and user groups (e.g. allotment gardens, cemetery managers, and urban planners) across spatial ecological scales so as to improve urban green area management. Paper V presents a framework to analyze the social-ecological dynamics behind the generation and distribution of ecosystem services in urban landscapes.

    The thesis points towards the notion of "a social production of ecosystem services" and argues for deeper engagement with urban political ecology and critical geography to inform governance and collective action in relation to urban ecosystems.

    I mänsklighetens namn: En etnologisk studie av ett svenskt biståndsprojekt i Rumänien2006Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is an analysis of observations among, and interviews with, Romanian and Swedish employees at a Swedish development aid project in Romania. The aim has been to study the categories of ‘humanity’: how the notions of the ‘human(e)’ and the ‘inhuman(e)’ were created in the context of the project. Further, the aim of the thesis has been to connect the relations in everyday life as it develops in an aid project to the social and societal processes of change in today’s Europe.

    Chapter 1 introduces the theoretical and methodological frameworks of the study. Chapter 2 analyses media representations of institutionalized children in Romania, and describes the development aid in Romania. Chapter 3 describes and analyses the practical work with the children in the everyday life of the project. Chapter 4 focuses on the locally employed project staff, and their adoption of a ‘more human(e)’ identity through working with the Swedish NGO. Chapter 5 analyses how the construction of difference took place in the everyday life of the development aid project. Chapter 6 analyses the development aid as exchange of gifts and applies models of analysis of social work with the so-called deserving and undeserving clients. Chapter 7 is a concluding chapter.

    The construction of the ‘human(e)’ and its opposite, the ‘inhuman(e)’, could be found on three levels. These categories were used in reference to: (1) the children, the sick elderly and the poor families that were the clients of the aid project and were expected to be ‘humanized’ in the course of project implementation; (2) the Romanians who were employed by the Swedish organization and who were to be humanized through their work and through learning Western views on what the human being is; and (3) by implication, the whole Romanian society and all the Romanians who were also to be ‘humanized’ through the intervention of the Western NGOs.

    Cultural and racial politics of representation: a study of diasporic masculinities among Iranian men2009Inngår i: GEXcel Work in Progress Report, vol. 7: Proceedings from GEXcel theme 2 : Deconstructing the hegemony of men and masculinities : spring 2009 / [ed] Katherine Harrison and Jeff Hearn, Linköping: Institute of Thematic Gender Studies, Department of Gender Studies, Linköping University , 2009, , s. 13s. 77-89Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Building upon my doctoral thesis, Diasporic Narratives of Sexuality: Identity Formation among Iranian-Swedish Women", the research proposed here seeks to examine the under-researched area of masculinity and sexuality of Iranian men living in different diasporic spaces. For the purposes of this research I seek to investigate (a) the effect of Iranian Islamic cultures and socializations, (b) the experiences of migration and ethnic relations on the men’s practices of masculinity and sexuality, and (c) how these influences may complicate their (re) presentation and perceptions of their masculinities and sexual experiences. By studying the impact of Orientalist views on the men’s identity formations, this study aims to explore how Iranian born men (re)negotiate masculinity, sexuality and subjectivity as they confront the variety of orientalist stereotypes in different diasporc spaces. By analyzing how the dichotomization of ‘we and them’ arises in media, literature, and film among others, I aim to understand not only what prejudices the interviewee men face on a daily basis, but also how the stereotypes are used to differentiate Iranian (Middle Eastern) men from ‘liberated and equal seeking’ white Western men.

    Diaspora och sexualitet: Förhandlingar om kön och sexualitet i ett föränderligt iransk- svenskt kulturellt landskap2013Inngår i: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, nr 4, s. 97-116Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is about diaspora. Through an analysis of the narratives of first generation Iranianwomen living in Sweden, I demonstrate how migratory experiences impact sexuality and howand in what ways sexuality is constitutive to the migratory process. By discussing some of thekey subjects raised by the interviewees, such as intimacy in the diasporic space, contradictorygender discourses, the dominating impacts of existing Orientalist stereotypes, and their senseof (be)longing or lack of (be)longing, I examine how the women experience their sexualitythrough the intersecting and sometimes contradictory discourses.By focusing on entangled issues involving subjectivity, sameness, difference, otherness,domination, agency, and marginality, I destabilize essentialist approaches of identity. Withgender and sexuality as the main subjects of the analysis, I discuss how moral values of thewomen regarding (in)appropriate sexual behaviour undergo various transformations. Theytake part in multiple (Iranian and Swedish) discourses and discard others while striving tomake space for themselves ‘inside’ these constraining norms. The women experience adiscrepancy as a result of being thwarted by two seemingly different cultures – while bothcultures construct discourses filled with stereotypes of so-called natives and outsiders.However, living in Sweden, where intersecting racist and sexist discourses come to life on adaily basis, it is actually not a thwarting by ‘two cultures.’ It is, in fact, a merger ofSwedishness with Iranianness (with all their complexities), along with other characteristics. Itis a complexity within the culture(s) in which the women live.

    Diasporic Masculinities: Reflections on Gendered, Raced and Classed Displacements2012Inngår i: Nordic Journal of Migration Research, ISSN 1799-649X, E-ISSN 1799-649X, Vol. 2, nr 2, s. 159-166Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on reflections that have grown during the ongoing research on construction of masculinities and sexualities in different diasporic spaces. By focusing on theoretical and contextual reflections regarding conditions of leaving, arrival and residency among Iranian-born men who live in Sydney, Stockholm and London, this article focuses on intersecting factors that construct masculinities in different diasporic spaces. Migratory masculine subjectivities are not only shifting and plural, but also reveal the multiple interactions of factors such as race, age, class, self and community, past and present, the political and the religious and through the continual negotiation of identity.

    Diasporic Narratives of Sexuality: Identity Formation among Iranian- Swedish Women2007Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the sexuality of Iranian women living in Sweden. Considering sexuality as gendered and socio-culturally constructed, I examine the impact of Iranian Islamic discourses, contemporary socialization and migration on women’s narrations of sexuality. The theoretical platform arises from a Foucauldian discursive analysis of sexuality, including Iranian and/or Islamic discourses on sexuality, and diasporic and feminist postcolonial theories. The empirical basis of the thesis consists of ten in-depth interviews with first generation Iranian immigrant women in Sweden. The narratives are the textual field for exploring the divergent and contingent intersections of discourses that constitute the women’s sexuality. Themes that surface in the narratives are the importance of virginity, veiling practices, requirements for modest dress codes, lack of sexual education, first sexual experience, marriage, divorce and diasporic experiences.

    With sexuality as the main subject of analysis, my focus draws on articulations involving gender, otherness, agency and marginality. Being alert to different (at times contradictory) discourses, I study the tension that develops between the process of (self)disciplining the body and the women’s coping tactics. The study examines the ways women take part in existing institutions while exhibiting agency and creating new ways to negotiate across discourses. This thesis shows how moral values regarding sexual behavior undergo various and sometimes contradictory transformations. The women report being torn between two different cultures. Yet, while consistently facing a crossroads of racist and sexist discourses filled with stereotypes of so-called natives and outsiders, I argue that the women are not caught between two cultures. Rather, they live a hybrid experience of ‘Swedishness,’ ‘Iranianness’ and other social relations. Complexity defines their tactics; the women exist in the interstices of culture(s) and discourses.

    I det här kapitlet kommer jag att diskutera vem som känner sig hemma på universitetet i allmänhet och i genusvetenskapliga sammanhang i synnerhet. Vilka kroppar känner sig hemma? Vilka omständigheter gör att vi (inte) känner oss hemma? Jag kommer att reflektera utifrån postkoloniala tanketraditioner och mina egna erfarenheter av erkännanden och misskännan-den inom universitetsvärlden. Mina reflektioner är ett exempel på postkolonial feministisk kritik, en kritisk tradition som vitaliserar genusvetenskapen idag.

    I dialog: Intersektionella läsningar av hemhörighet, migration och kunskapsproduktion2017Inngår i: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 38, nr 3, s. 77-101Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The dialogue-based article departs from our persistent research engagement with intersectional feminist approaches and questions related to racialization, representation, locationality and positionality. We focus on the notion of home and homelessness, longing and belonging, migration and knowledge production.

    Some of the troubling questions we engage with are: How are the (im)possibility of feeling at home, migratory subject positions, and knowledge production conditioned by shifting socio-political contexts, culturally coded circumstances and the conceptualisation of difference? How do constantly shifting and intersected power hierarchies (re)shape the conceptualisation and (re)presentation of the certain types of knowledge and knowledge-makers through academic production, and through literary and visual means?

    These questions are discussed in dialogue between us, two Swedish gender researchers interested in cultural practices and cultural representations. The article unfolds through a dialogical method where, initially, our respective positions and research inputs, in relation to the article’s questions, are presented. The article continues to discuss the very same questions predominantly through different literary and visual examples. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichies’ TED talk, The danger of single story, has an evolving and central role in our dialogue. By linking different examples to the existing intersecting institutionalized power relations, we show that the personal is institutional.

    Rasifiering av kunskapsproduktion: En epistemologisk resa genom processer av inkludering och exkludering i olika akademiska forum2017Inngår i: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 38, nr 4, s. 31-53Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The central aim of this article is to examine intersectional processes of racialisation within the academic communities: racialisation of knowledge producers and their produced knowledge. We explore what kinds of knowledge productions and knowing subject positions are rendered (im)possible in everyday academic interactions. We use our racialised scholarly experiences as a methodological entry point to contextualise the navigations and negotiations of shifting and intersecting power relations. Our analytical reasoning is presented through several steps. First, we discuss how academic habitus and affiliations maintained in various formal and informal forums are based on established, racialised norms. Second, we discuss how the presence or absence of epistemic entitlement within different academic settings and communities is established through racialised hierarchies. Thus the physical, social, intellectual and emotional spaces that we inhabit create comfort zones for some and discomfort zones for others. Third, we argue how managing the existing accent ceiling becomes a mode for navigating the conditioning norms of whiteness. In our conclusions, we reflect on the passivity, silences as well as (mis)use of the vocabulary of anti-racism and intersectionality as a form of 'white' capital for shoring their privileges further rather than undoing it.

    The Racialised Knowledge Economy2019Inngår i: Narratives of Marginalized Identities in Higher Education: Inside and Outside the Academy / [ed] Santosh Khadka, Joanna Davis-McElligatt, Keith Dorwick, New York: Routledge, 2019, s. 86-99Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this article is to challenge and problematise how racialising and othering processes construct knowledge production and knowing subjects in the academic institutions. We draw on our conversations, writings, and experiences within the Swedish academy as “non-Swedes” (for discussion on construction of Swedishness, see Mattsson, 2005) and through our specific geo-political positionalities (Farahani, 2010, 2015; Koobak & Thapar-Björkert, 2012). Thapar-Björkert’s post-colonial positionality was shaped through the legacy of her parents’ anti-colonial activism. The spatial-colonial contexts of academic institutions in the United Kingdom, together with the nationalist biographical trajectories that she shared with her parents in India, gave postcoloniality an emotional and political salience. She developed strong perceptions of “white privilege” encompassed within what Chicano scholars refer to as “academic colonialism” (see Reyes & Halcon, 1988). Farahani was raised in a traditional working-class family in a specific political-historical Iranian setting and carried a suitcase filled with failed dreams of a miscarried revolution (1979 Iranian revolution), a pointless, long war between Iran and Iraq (1980–1988), and several experiences of exile. Her entrance to Western academia as a “mature” and “different” student is characterised by firsthand experience of the variety of (post) colonial challenges of “adjustment” to different societies and academic milieus. We consider our positions and positionings as a ‘space for theorising” (hooks, 1989) and our theorising as a “location of healing” (hooks, 2005: 36. hooks, 1994) to articulate multilayered subject positions which locate us differently in different contexts. Emphasising the empirical significance of intersectionality for transformative knowledge production, we aim to distance ourselves from a deployment of “ornamental intersectionality” which as Bilge (2013) argues is an active disarticulation of radical politics of social justice and undermines intersectionality’s credibility as “an analytical and political tool elaborated by less powerful social actors facing multiple minoritizations” (see Bilge, 2013, p. 410). By employing our personal—yet subjective and mediated—experiences, we pay particular attention to how we can use (our) 87experience as an analytical source. However, we want to avoid offering our experiences an exclusive privilege of definition since it might strengthen an epistemological standpoint that those who have “experience” know better and have somehow access to genuine knowledge, regardless of their intersecting subject positions, political ideologies and positionalities in relation to power and powerlessness. On the other hand, disregarding and disbelieving people’s lived experiences has always been a powerful approach to discredit the political views, writings, or artistic expressions of women and racialised and sexualised minorities. In doing so, the experience of unmarked privilege (white—male middleclass—privilege) becomes the only dominant singular story. In addition, by merely placing accounts of people of colour and women in the category of “experiential,” we neglect their theoretical contributions. As a result, white scholars are often seen as the only ones most equipped for theorising and producing knowledge and in a schema which constructs a disembodied theorist as the legitimate academic subject, drawing on one’s own experiences of racialisation can be “dismissed as subjective and ‘confessional’” (Simmonds, 1997, p. 52).

    Transnationell kultur i marginalen: ett vitalt fenomen i motvind: Rapport från ett kartläggningsprojekt2010Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the research project, resulting in the report “Transnationell kultur i marginalen” (Transnational Culture in the Margins), written by PhD Yael Feiler for The Multicultural Centre, with support from the Swedish Arts Council,

    was, to trace, to map, to contextualize and illuminate transnational cultural expressions and arrangements in contemporary Sweden, and to identify the obstacles and difficulties which obstruct those activities from being recognized and included in the cultural establishment.

    The method used was series of in-depth interviews with a large number of active practitioners working in different artistic genres in the outskirts of the Swedish cities Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg, as well as with politicians in charge of cultural issues.

    The results of the inquiry indicate that:

    • Transnational Culture in Sweden is a widespread and extensive phenomenon.     
    • Housing segregation on one hand, and ”compulsory integration” on the other, are, together with the dismantling of the welfare state, identified as central obstacles which obstruct those activities from being included in the cultural establishment.  
    • A continuous follow-up of transnational cultural expressions and activities is required if those should be included within a common cultural sphere.

    Visionära planer och vardagliga praktiker: Postmilitära landskap i Östersjöområdet2013Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the years after WWII the Baltic Sea Area developed into an area strongly divided between East and West. Because of the tensions between the blocs, the coastal areas where strongly militarized and prepared for war.

    The new political situation after 1989 propelled an international military disarmament and closing down of bases, training areas around Europe. Since the Baltic Sea Area was one of the heaviest militarized part of Europe the question of disarmament here is of particularly great economic, social and cultural importance.

    This study is about the post-military landscape in the Baltic Sea Area with examples from Dejevo on the Estonian island Saaremaa, Dranske on the (East)German island Rügen and Fårösund on the Swedish island Gotland.

    The aim of this thesis is to shed light on the process where the military landscape of the Cold War is transformed in order to be incorporated in the macro-regional endeavors for unity in the new Europe. I want to analyze the implications that planning visions have on the everyday life of people. A following aim is to shed light on the challenges that urban planning has to face in this transformation. Three research questions frame the study. The first question analyzes the process where the coastal areas of the Baltic Sea after the end of the Cold War are disarmed and transformed, from a landscape of production of military services and objects into a landscape of consumption for recreation and tourism. The second question takes its point of departure in the relation between planning visions and everyday life. The third question concerns the matter of the past and analyzes what aspects of the military landscape are emphasized respectively pushed aside in the transformation into post-military landscape.

    The study is based on interviews with inhabitants and local planners as well as macro-regional and local planning documents, articles and photographs.

    Vänta barn: Förkroppsligande, materialitet och levd graviditet2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen bygger på en kvalitativ studie av ett tiotal kvinnors erfarenheter av graviditet i nutid. Studiens syfte är att få kunskap om graviditeten som kulturell process, genom att utforska hur levda erfarenheter formas i relationen mellan kropp och materialitet. Studien fokuseras till fyra tematiska områden som utgörs av graviditetsbeskedet, ultraljudsundersökningen, kroppens förändringar och tankar kring det väntade barnet. Det empiriska materialet består av intervjuer och observationer. Studien visar på att relationen mellan ting och människa framträder under flera av graviditetens faser; så som i kvinnornas strävan efter att bli gravida, i bekräftelsen av graviditeten och i förhållandet till det ofödda barnet. Vidare visar undersökningen hur förkroppsligandet av graviditeten och erfarandet av kroppens förändringar formas i relation till tankar och känslor i kvinnornas medvetande.

    Abstract [en]

    What is it that makes us feel at home in a place? How do we perceive the experience of moving to an unfamiliar country with the knowledge that we might just stay one or two years? In this thesis, made in collaboration with Sektionen för byggnadsplanering at Stockholm University, these questions are examined by investigating the behavior and thought patterns of guest scientists that have recently started working in Stockholm. During the thesis you get to know the tactics and thought patterns of five guest scientists currently living in Stockholm in relation to three major themes. The themes are “getting to know the city”, “visiting” and “the position in the city”. Under these general themes we get to understand how the guest scientists use different tactics to navigate moving to Stockholm. We also get to understand how they by moving to a place where they have no plans to be joined into a Gemeinschaft can get a bigger drive to work harder on their careers.

    Ur svenska hjärtans djup: Reproduktion av samtida monarki2010Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to show how Swedish royalty is reproduced and gains its extraordinary status through interaction between people, institutions and artefacts in the beginning of the 21st century.

    The analysis is based on data collected between 2003 and 2009 in different contexts where royalty and the monarchy are brought to the fore. The data consists of field notes from a municipality’s preparations for a visit of the king and queen of Sweden and three official events where royals are present, transcribed interviews, answers to a museums questionnaire and media material. The main theoretical premise is Actor Network Theory (ANT). Additionally, the study draws upon theories about cynical reason, modernity, humor and ritual.

    The study shows how royal sovereignty is reproduced basically by acts that separate persons and artifacts, put them on display and evaluates them as extravagant. These processes are at hand both in people’s everyday lives and during official event that present royals as the center of attention. Monarchy is interpreted as a modern institution mirroring notions of rationality through notions of irrationality, and the analysis shows how royal charisma is produced through performances fully in accordance with late-modern thinking and acting. The attractive royal mystic is interpreted as a consequence of a general strives to bring together the contrasting concepts of royalty and ordinariness. By analyzing humorous as well as servile attitude towards the royal institution and its representatives, the study shows how monarchy and the concept of royalty interact in the re-production of Sweden as a nation and in the individual citizen’s project of self-identity. Through creating memories of royal ancestors, individually and collectively, and through preserving the relations to existing royals and imagining the future of the royal family, a collective immortality is formed. In the process structures of inequality and social differences are established and made reasonable.

    Abstract [sv]

    Som kulturella lämningar är vrak och övergivna fritidsbåtar intressanta eftersom de befinner sig i marginalen på flera sätt. De ger uttryck för flera slags ambivalenser. En ambivalens rör kulturarvsaspekten: de övergivna båtarna är vissa specifika objekt inom en accepterad kulturarvskategori som inte anses som bevarandevärda. En andra ambivalens berör landskapet: övergivna fritidsbåtar lämnas att förfalla i naturen och beroende på vilken typ av båt och sönderfall det är fråga om kan de då antingen bli betraktade som pittoreska eller som svårt vanprydande inslag i landskapet. En äldre eka i trä som ligger till hälften sjunken kan till exempel väcka en slags ruinromantik, medan en dito plastmotorbåt från 80-talet ses som skräp. En tredje ambivalens rör övergivna båtars oreglerade status ur ett rättsligt perspektiv. Ingen bär till exempel ansvaret för en övergiven båt på drift: vems minnen kan en ägarlös båt härbärgera? Vrak efter äldre fritidsbåtar kan därtill knytas till två sidor av moderniteten, dels den industriella fabriksmässiga produktionen, dels fritidens framväxt och idyllisering.

    Med fritidsbåtsvrak som utgångspunkt diskuteras  individuella och kollektiva minnens betydelser och kopplingar, kulturarvets landskap och landskapens kulturarv, makten över förflutenheten och sist men inte minst modernitetens materiella lämningar.

    Heritage of death: Landscapes of Emotion, Memory and Practice2018Collection/Antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, death is being reconceptualised around the world as heritage, replete with material markers and intangible performances. These heritages of death are personal, national and international. They are vernacular as well as official, sanctioned as well as alternative. This book brings together more than twenty international scholars to consider the heritage of death from spatial, political, religious, economic, cultural, aesthetic and emotive aspects. It showcases different attitudes and phases of death and their relationship to heritage through ethnographically informed case studies to illustrate both general patterns and local and national variations. Through analyses of material expressions and social practices of grief, mourning and remembrance, this book shows not only what death means in contemporary societies, but also how individuals, groups and nations act towards death.

    Musik och politik i skuggan av nazismen: Kurt Atterberg och de svensk-tyska musikrelationerna2007Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with relations between music and politics in Sweden and Germany during the 1930s and 40s. I study how music was used as a political tool, and the ideas that existed about musical expression of national and ethnic identity and about “good” and “bad” music. I argue that these conceptions became a driving force and were important to Swedish relations with Nazi Germany. The study focuses on material by and about the Swedish composer Kurt Atterberg (1887–1974). Atterberg was a central figure in the world of Swedish music during the first half of the 20th century and his life gives a glimpse of the spirit of the time. The theoretical platform arises from a critical discourse analysis combined with theories about modernity, nationalism and ethnicity. The empirical basis of the thesis consists of material from Swedish, German and Austrian archives, newspaper articles, radio programmes and interviews with composers of today.

    My study shows how Sweden and Germany inspired each other in the musical relationship. Both countries encountered similar problems. In the first half of the 20th century, modernisation accelerated in Europe, which also meant dramatic changes in musical life. Music could be spread to a greater extent without the composer’s control. New techniques, for example the sound movie, left many musicians unemployed. New musical styles appeared and challenged establishments. I argue that different ideas about national identity and its musical expression were important for the development of relations between Sweden and Nazi Germany. For many composers and musicians an engagement in Nazi Germany was interpreted as a contribution to the establishing of a strong national identity and the improvement of their own national musical life.

    Swedish-German musical relations were also influenced by different views on music and politics. For Nazi politicians music and politics ran together and music was to give expression to Nazi ideology. In Sweden music and politics were to be kept apart. Different perspectives on music and politics made it possible for Swedish composers and musicians to be active in Nazi Germany and to define their engagement as purely musical work. The Nazi government could for its part use Nordic composers and music to confirm Nazi ideas on race biology and to spread Nazi propaganda.

    Öst är Väst men Väst är bäst: Östtysk identitetsformering i det förenade Tyskland2011Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the German Democratic Republic (GDR) the overthrow of the socialist regime did not only bring about both an economic and political shift, it resulted also in the inclusion of the GDR into the Federal Republic of Germany. The fall of the Wall brought with it transformations in everyday life as well as changes in social identities.

    This study examines how people who grew up in the GDR define the East and the West in unified Germany, as well as identifying which concepts play a role in the self-interpretations given by former GDR citizens. Through applying discourse theory, I investigate how identities are partially fixed and change over time, relating this always to historically situated discourses. In the analysis, East and West are considered as floating signifiers, which, through articulations made with other categories such as class, nation, place and gender, come to be filled with meaning. The study is based on twenty-five life story interviews conducted in Eastern Germany. The group of interviewees consisted of fifteen women and ten men born in the GDR between the years of 1970 and 1979, all of whom had different levels of education.

    The demise of the socialist state and the transition to a capitalist society is central in the interviewees’ life stories. Their narratives about the past are formed in a discursive order other than the one in which the events themselves took place. Conversely, the past is used as a foil against which the present is compared. With the dislocation, the interviewees have developed a reflexive stance to both themselves and the world. The study reveals both how East and West are still used to make the world intelligible in a number of fields and, at the same time, how these same concepts are transcended. It shows in what ways the interviewees employ different strategies to adapt to the new circumstances and to handle a potentially marked position in unified Germany.

    Publika museirum: Materialiseringar av demokratiska ideal på Statens Historiska Museum 1943-20132017Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation is to investigate how public spaces in the Swedish History Museum in Stockholm have materialized in relation to cultural policy objectives and ideals of a democratic and inclusive museum. The investigated time period spans from 1943 to 2013. The Swedish History Museum is a state-run archaeological museum, where norms and values are expressed through various governmental policy- and control documents. Hence, entering the museum also means entering a symbolic national space. The fact that the museum has been politically regulated throughout the studied period makes it illustrative of changing democratic public ideals in the 20th century.

    Unlike other similar studies, the empirical focus is not on exhibitions, but on other public spaces that visitors encounter; the entrance, the shop, children’s spaces and the courtyard. These spaces are less invisible in the museum hierarchy. At the same time, they are often central spaces to visitors. The museum building is not as fixed as it might appear to be. Drawing on ideas from Bruno Latour and Doreen Massey – and their perspectives on space, materiality and power – I explore how the social and spatial changes of the museum affect each other. Efforts have continuously been made to alter these public spaces, and the outlines and uses have repeatedly changed.

    By combining archival materials, interviews and observations, I investigate how democratic ideals have been negotiated in material forms, and what kind of audiences/visitors these spaces have conceptualized over time. Linking different kinds of sources, that speak from various levels and positions, has been an analytically important method.

    The analysis describes the museum as a meaning producing network that materially embody different, and sometimes conflicting ideologies. The public spaces have been shaped by tensions; between education versus pleasure, collecting versus showing, and by the dichotomy between culture and commerce. What is communicated thorough various materialities and inscriptions in the shop, the entrance, and the spaces for children sometimes contradict perspectives produced in exhibitions and educational programmes. Hierarchies between professional positions and knowledges propagate as social extensions towards the visitors, and sometimes, reproduce structural hierarchies. Museum functions literally “takes place”, depending on how they are valued and assigned meaning. The museum has increasingly included children, while also becoming a space for commerce. Various, and sometimes incompatible ideals on equality and inclusion have been implemented, simultaneously. At the same time, the public spaces carry unique spatial qualities, which can benefit inclusion. Concluding, the dissertation stresses that the entrance, the shop, the children spaces and other public spaces perceived as “peripheral” need to be viewed as central, not as superficial services or add-ons to the “real” museum experience, i.e. the exhibition.

    Women of the Fäbod: An Ethnological Study of the Swedish Fäbod Culture at the Turn of the 20th Century2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to explore the meaning of womanhood in relation to the Swedish fäbod culture at the turn of the 20th century. The study is based upon a questionnaire from 1928 and the material is collected from the archives at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm and the Institute for Language and Folklore in Uppsala. Drawing upon gender and ritual theories, the study intends to gain an understanding for what it meant to be a woman of the fäbod by examining how fäbod herdswomen were culturally shaped and initiated into women both in relation to their place in the fäbod community of herdswomen, but also in respect to the wider community and society of which they were a part of.  The main conclusion of the study is that the journey into the fäbod woods can be seen as a rite of passage where adolescent girls going to the fäbod for the first time were initiated into the fäbod community of herdswomen. Womanhood is a cultural phenomenon in which women are culturally shaped and initiated into women not only by the codes, conceptions and values of the society at large, but also by the stories, customs and traditions of their local communities. The fäbod herdswomen were born into the gender power structures of a patriarchal society that sought to shape them into promising wives, and they were also women of the fäbod, initiated into the fäbod communitas, a form of female counterculture with its very own musical language, customs and traditions, and with its very own definitions of womanhood.

    Species Aid: Organizational Sensemaking in a Preservation Project in Albania2004Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1994 a Hungarian fisheries biologist specialised on sturgeons revealed that there was at least one population of sturgeons belonging to the threatened sturgeon species Ac. Naccari still present in the Albanian aquatic fauna. The stage was now set for an international conservation initiative. This discovery marked the beginning of the conservation project that is analysed in this thesis. The ideas of biodiversity, the conservation initiative, and the activities of the project on the ground in Albania are analysed through ethnography of the everyday activities of the project members’.

    The aim of the ethnography presented is to contextualise differing perceptions of biodiversity, discuss perceived pros and cons of species conservation among the project crew, the roles they saw for science and scientific expertise in species conservation, and the tensions around ‘East’ and ‘West’ that in many ways permeated the project. The thesis also addresses more general questions concerning the role of project managers, leadership, organisational learning and projects as organisations.

    In the concluding chapter, it is argued that through the internal storytelling within the core project crew, a largely self-referential system of meaning was constructed that relied on several distinctions such as those between ‘east’ and ‘west’, between ‘insider’ and ‘outsider’, between ‘self’ and ‘other’ (understood in a broad sense), between ‘before’ and ‘after, between 'politics' and 'biodiversity', and between 'corruption' and 'keeping the hands clean'. The world view of the project depended on binary oppositional distinctions such as those between ‘knowledgeable’ and ‘non-knowledgeable’, between ‘environment’ and 'not environment’, between ‘politics’ and ‘not politics’, and between ‘doing’ and ‘not doing’ conservation.

    One crucial conclusion of the thesis is that bad examples, even failures, promote learning, perhaps to an even higher, degree than success stories, when it comes to organisational learning. The informational and communicational dimension has to be taken seriously in conservation undertakings, because if conservation projects do not consider how ‘nature’ and ‘environment’ are conceptualised in different contexts, it is hard to anchor conservation undertakings in local contexts.

    Gäst i Sverige: Sanningsregimer, villkorade själv(re)presentationer och nationell tillhörighet vid moskévisningar i Stockholm2016Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation explores the regimes of truth surrounding Muslims in Sweden. The main focus lies on the production of knowledge regarding Muslims in the context of the guided tours of a mosque in Stockholm. Special attention is given to how regimes of truth regarding Muslims inform the conversations during the visits, how they are debated in this particular arena and how that is dependent on positionality. It is a situation in which a Muslim, in the position of the guide, has an opportunity to present alternative storylines, or stories, about who Muslims are and what they do. The visitors for their part can assess, respond to and challenge those stories. In other words, the study explores who can speak with authority.

    The study is based mainly on participant observations made during 14 guided tours from 2003-2006 and on interviews with guides and visitors regarding their experiences on the respective tours. Most of the visitor groups were making study visits as a part of educational training. Seven of these were in primary and secondary education and two of them at the college level. Four groups came from social clubs at a workplace or from interest groups, and one was organised by Stockholm City Museum. To frame and contextualise the tours I have furthermore used data from mass media, mainly press clippings, but also features from TV shows. Other categories have been archival data, leaflets and brochures handed out at the mosque, as well as fictional books and a mailing list for Muslims. These sources have helped me discern regimes of truth that are, and are not, articulated on the guided tours.

    The central results concern the fact that the guides see the tours as a chance to alter other stories about Muslims and allow the visitors who tour the mosque to hear something that is not mediated or taught in school; however, they experience difficulties in terms of gaining credibility with regard to their presentation of alternative stories. Even when the guides talk about their private life, as is often the case, they are challenged and sometimes mistrusted. The guides, and hosts, use their private lives to explain their position in Sweden, but the visitors also expect them to expose their personal opinions regarding how they, as Muslims, would act in morally difficult scenarios; thus, the tours present a situation where the visitors seem more comfortable than the hosts. Another significant result is that both the guides and visitors expressed the importance of the tours becoming a respectful meeting place. Religiosity, religion and secularism seem in themselves to represent otherness. What is respectful in practice, however, is not very clear. There is an ongoing debate in Swedish society concerning whether it is respectful to shake hands with a Muslim in a working situation, as is customary in Sweden. Moreover, the showing of respect is given a gender dimension on the tours, since the main way to perform respect is for every woman to wear a robe when entering the mosque. Respect as a practice seems to be mired in social inequality.

    It seems difficult to become a guest if you are simultaneously appropriated the position of a Swede, and difficult to pass as a host if you position yourself as a Muslim.

    Who is the same as me? On studying guided tours of a mosque2015Inngår i: Conference Booklet, 2015, s. 21-21Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    For my thesis, I have analysed the guided tours of the great mosque in Stockholm from a postcolonial perspective. Part from participant observations of the tours, I have interviewed both guides and visitors. In this paper, I wish to explore how the knowledge production is affected by the makings of differences between both researcher and researched as well as between different participators in the study. What is the role of the body and appearance as a base for my analyses and interpretations of the tours? In the intersecting field of religion, race and gender bodily signs are interpreted and connected with certain frames of intelligibility, for example, making a female white Muslim guide coming off as eerie to one of the visitors. Further, in the analyses and descriptions of the tours I have been much more cautious about how I describe the (mostly Middle Eastern) guides than I have been in describing white Swedish visitors resulting in that I have described many of them as quite one dimensional and less complex in the analyses. This is, on the one hand, the result of taking into consideration the on-going othering of Muslims in Sweden and the Western world. On the other hand, in trying to resist that very othering of Muslims I reiterate it instead, in the sense that I as a researcher seem to perceive the guides as more other and therefore become more vigilant of what I believe that I can grasp.
