Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to explore and understand young rural citizens’ political position-takings. By employing a Bourdieusian approach to class and politics, we are able to show class still offers an important tool for understanding differing political position-takings. By comparing this study carried out on a population from a rural mining district with an equivalent study on young citizens in the city of Uppsala we find both similarities and differences as regards the spaces of position-takings. Both spaces are structured by oppositions regarding redistribution issues, environmental issues, cultural pluralism issues and trust in established institutions, but these different issues are of different importance in each geographical setting. In summary, the spaces of position-takings in Bergslagen and Uppsala represent two slightly different parts of a much wider space of position-takings. The positions and compositions of social attributes in each space relative to one another suggests that we are dealing with one space, the rural mining district, characterized by the working classes and one space, the city of Uppsala, characterized by the middle and upper middle classes, respectively.
