Abstract [en]

This research explores how entrepreneurship interacts with feministic political commitments and praxis. It shows that this interaction is intimately shaped by its spatial setting, in this case Möllevången in the city of Malmö, Sweden. For a long time, the independent comics industry in Sweden has had men in leading positions and the medium has had masculinist connotations. My thesis shows that for women and transgender persons working in such a male-dominated industry, networking and collaborating are crucial for succeeding and staying in business. The particular network studied here is Dotterbolaget, a women and transgender separatist comic’s network based in Malmö.

Dotterbolaget practices a feministic approach. The thesis analyses firstly its work practices and secondly the motives animating their adoption. Avoiding competition and promoting collaboration are important factors. So too is finding a means of motivation other than monetary, such as having fun and creating a professional environment for one another. The analysis also considers the spatial setting of the network, showing the deep significance of physical place. Finally, the non-hierarchal form of the network is considered. What does it mean to work as a comic’s artist without hierarchies in an individualised society? What tensions and strengths does such an organisational form give rise to?

Abstract [es]

Esta investigación explora cómo el espíritu empresarial interactúa con los compromisos y prácticas políticas feministas, mostrando que esta interacción está íntimamente configurada por su entorno espacial, en este caso el barrio de Möllevången en la ciudad de Malmö, Suecia.

Durante mucho tiempo, la industria de cómics independientes en Suecia ha tenido hombres en posiciones de liderazgo dándole a este medio connotaciones masculinas. Mi tesis muestra que para las mujeres y personas transgénero que trabajan en una industria tan dominada por los hombres, la comunicación a través de las redes sociales y la colaboración son cruciales para tener éxito y mantenerse vigentes. La red específica de artistas (dibujantes) aquí estudiada es Dotterbolaget, una red de cómic separatista de mujeres y transexuales con base en Malmö.

Dotterbolaget practica un enfoque feminista. La tesis analiza, en primer lugar, sus prácticas de trabajo y, en segundo lugar, las razones que motivan su adopción. Evitar la competencia y promover la colaboración son factores importantes. Así también lo es el encontrar una forma de motivación que no sea monetaria, tal como divertirse y crear un entorno profesional para otras personas. El análisis también considera la ubicación espacial de la red, mostrando el profundo significado del lugar específico. Finalmente, se considera la forma no jerárquica de la red. ¿Qué significa trabajar como un artista de cómic sin jerarquías en una sociedad individualista? ¿A qué tensiones y fortalezas da lugar tal forma de organización?

Abstract [en]

In recent decades, there has been growing interest in renowned gourmet restaurants, and increased awareness about how food is prepared, presented and served. A small and select group of chefs have thereby gained prestigious positions and high-profile images as restaurateurs. Most of these restaurateurs are men. The research question this article sets out to study is: How is the identity and ideology of masculinity imbued into the subjectivity and representations of gourmet restaurateurs? The selection of data sources means that our geographical focus is on Stockholm, Sweden’s main urban region. The methodological approach of this article to employ empirical material from interviews and media articles reveals how this masculine discourse is attained through a particular interplay of subjects (the chefs and entrepreneurs) and representations (the media). The focus of this article has included a quite exclusive category of a few restaurants and restaurateurs, which may have implications on the findings pointing to a homogenous profile of the ideals of the gourmet chefs. The results point out that the micro-spaces of gourmet restaurants’ kitchens and dining rooms can be understood as nurseries for ‘nostalgic and conservative masculinities’.
