    Abstract [en]

    This study examines conceptions about the biology discipline and its practices, which are explicitly and implicitly presented in biology environments at Swedish universities. The empirical material has been obtained through “shadowing” and interviewing biologists and is analyzed with inspiration from Gee’s discourse analysis. The overall biology discourse consists of a number of sub-discourses, which sometimes express tensions between each other. One of these is the discourse of superior research with competitive, high performance, heavily equipped environments – a discourse which is in opposition to teaching activities. Another sub-discourse concerns the successful strategic biologist, and this discourse is in tension with the discourse of the enthusiastic, devoted, nature-loving biologist. The meritocratic discourse characterized by competence, knowledge and talent supposedly without the influence of gender, ethnicity, or class, contrasts, in its turn, with the discourse of the gendered practice that is visible in the material. These different sub-discourses are more or less inclusive for different individuals, something which can be observed in the gendered practices.

    Deckardrottningar kontra deckarkungar: Om könsbundna marknadsföringsstrategier i 2000-talets svenska deckargenre2015In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 36, no 3, p. 29-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the successful Swedishcrime writers and the gendered aspects of how they are marketed towards thereaders in the 2000s. The purpose is to show how Swedish publishers follow distinctgender patterns in their marketing of crime fiction, and to discuss how thisaffects the responses to male and female crime novelists in cultural and mediallandscapes. The empirical material consists of 153 Swedish crime novels,published in paperback between 1998 and 2011. Theoretically, the article connectsto the field of book history insofar as the printed book itself is seen asimportant when it comes to how literary works are perceived by their readers.The results show that male and female authors of crime fiction in general havebeen marketed recognizably different in almost all possible ways. In the books’extra materials and other author-centred peritexts, female authors areassociated with the private and the family related. Male authors, on the otherhand, are most often described as proficient, well writing and engaged insocial criticism. Furthermore, the book covers are clearly gendered: covers bymale authors are darker, more serious and more traditional to the crime genre;covers by female authors are brighter, more “fun” and reminiscent of chick litrather than of traditional crime fiction. The main conclusion is that thegender gap shown in these paperbacks support and maintain the stereotype thatmale and female authors write different types of crime fiction, with maleauthors being valued the most. The paratextual division of male and femalecrime writers, thus, upholds the established and gendered hierarchy in thegenre.

    Abstract [en]

    Feminist researchers have had an ambivalent relation to friendships between men.They have been seen as both threatening and promising, as relationships in which gendered power relations can be either reproduced or challenged. This article draws upon interviews with heterosexual men about their friendships with other men, and the role of emotional and physical closeness in these friendships. The interviewees distinguish between “real” and less real friendships, and argue that they are capable of recognizing and having “real” friendships. They see friendship as gendered, and argue that men in general have difficulties with friendship. Physical closeness, especially hugging, is also discussed. The interviewees distinguish between “real” hugs and back pat hugs, arguing that most men engage in the latter out of fear of closeness and homophobia, but that they themselves prefer the former kind of hug. These narratives are analysed as rhetorical tools making the interviewees stand out as exceptional in relation to other men, who are depicted as shallow or scared of getting close to male friends. By drawing on ideas about “real friendship” and authenticity, they position themselves as anti-homophobic and anti-laddish; as a certain kind of men, aware of gender constructions and different from various “Others”. The article highlights the construction of an anti-homophobic and anti-laddish masculine position in a contemporary Swedish context, focusing on ideas about friendship and authenticity. The interview is theorized as an arena for doing positioning work, where boundaries are drawn and categories are re/produced, one of which is the idea of “real” friendship, used for distinguishing between different kinds of men and relationships. The discussions about friendship are complex, as well as filled with longing for and envisionings of new kinds of friendships and intimacies between men.

    Begynnande naturvetenskap och könade kroppar i förskolans utelek: Emergent Science and gendered Bodies in Preschool Outdoor play2018In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 39, no 4, p. 8-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on new materialist thought (Barad 2003, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2014), this study explores preschool children’s gendered becomings as they play and explore together with two large boulders in a natural setting. The study takes its point of departure in emergent science (Siraj-Blatchford 2001) which refers to science as a social practice that is already explored by children’s daily play. Data for the project was constructed during a field study in a Swedish preschool with 25 five-year old children. The focus of the field study was the children’s play and explorations together with the preschool environment, during activities not specifically guided by teachers. The findings show how also natural materials, as the boulders in this study, can take part in and shape, both the children’s scientific explorations and their gendered becomings. This means that the ways that a child managed to explore and become was dependent on if and how the child managed to co-act and play together with the boulders and friction. However, not only the boulders, but also gender norms functioned as co-creators in this process. This goes against the common thought of children’s play in nature as “free and equal”, a notion that is not often questioned. Studies exploring children’s play and learning outdoors often lack gender perspectives, especially when science is also in focus. One of the article’s conclusions is the need for preschool teachers to engage in how children explore emergent science together with the natural/ material-discursive surroundings. That is, how different natural materials co-act with gender norms in different ways, moment by moment, and thus enable or prevent children from engaging with science and scientific phenomena.

    I ett antirasistiskt rum: En språkvetenskaplig analys av vithet och maktrelationer på en antirasistisk och feministisk plattform på Instagram2015In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 36, no 3, p. 7-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Anti-racism in contemporary Sweden is often manifested in protests against explicit racist expressions and acts. However, anti-racism also concerns the attention to and questioning of structures, prejudices and norms. This approach to anti-racism is often emphasised by those who are themselves victims of racism. One example is MAKTHAVARNA (“the power holders”), an anti-racist platform on the social networking site Instagram. MAKTHAVARNA targets those who are directly affected by racism. White followers of the account are asked not to post comments or contribute to the discussions.

    From a postcolonial perspective and with linguistic methods, this study examines the interactions on MAKTHAVARNA, where victims of racism share their experiences of white supremacy, and where white people interfere in the discussions despite the separatist rules. The analysis shows how norms of whiteness are translated in speech acts made by white followers who ask questions, make judgments and expect information, which results in the (re)production of asymmetric relationships. The position of those affected by racism is formed by the linguistically (re)produced normative white position. However, the hierarchical relationship between these positions is dislocated when the victims of racism reclaim precedence, by for example citing and interpreting white people’s utterances from their own perspectives. Furthermore, the analysis shows how the terms for participation in platform discussions are set up linguistically and technically in the digital social media. Consequently, through this media, a public space and precedence in defining anti-racism are provided for the target audience of MAKTHAVARNA. White followers, on the contrary, cannot participate actively on the platform – not even with good intentions – without linguistically reproducing hierarchical relationships and norms of whiteness.

    Offer, minne, och utsatthet: diskurser om alkohol i våldtäkts- och misshandelsmål2016In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 37, no 4, p. 102-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The alcohol consumption of female rape victims is often discussed during rape trials. This has been regarded as an emblematic example of victim blaming and the failures of the legal system in relation to rape. From a feminist perspective it can be seen as an expression of the structural subordination of women in society in general.

    This article investigates the meanings attached to alcohol in written court decisions in Swedish rape trials (2008-2012). Rape trials are contrasted with assault trials, where the complainants are men. Thirty court decisions from each type of trial are compared, with the same number of guilty and not-guilty verdicts.

    Quantitative analysis reveals that alcohol consumption is mentioned more often in rape trials, where it also appears more relevant to decision-making. The complainants' consumption is mentioned four times more often than the defendants' consumption. In assault decisions, the mentioning of alcohol consumption is distributed roughly equally between the parties.  

    The analysis shows how a large proportion of the alcohol references in both rape trials and assault trials can be regarded as largely irrelevant noise. The remaining alcohol references are understood in terms of five interpretative repertoires: 1) the accuracy of memory on part of witnesses; 2) explanations of seemingly irrational behaviors; 3) vulnerability, 4) getting the victim drunk, and 5) moral character. The latter three interpretive repertoires are more common in rape decisions. As a conclusion, part of the preoccupation with rape victims’ alcohol consumption can be attributed to protectionary strategies, and should thus not be regarded as victim-blaming. However, some assessments appear to build on assumptions that information about alcohol consumption is indicative to moral character that is relevant to court decisions.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract:This paper provides a presentation of the project Ulleråker – funktionsnedsättning och kulturarv funded by the National Heritage Board. The project seeks to investigate the transformation of Ulleråker, a former psychiatric hospital in the outskirts of Uppsala (Sweden). The project will study how cultural heritage is transformed, and formed, during urban development and rebuilding processes, with a particular focus on gender and functionality norms. The project examines different kinds of material in order to illuminate how cultural heritage is articulated and materialized in the area. The material is analyzed using a composite theory of critical heritage studies coupled with crip and gender studies. The purpose of the project is to contribute to develop methods and theories in how to deal with the cultural heritage of psychiatric hospitals during times of transformation. Keywords: Psychiatric hospitals, gender, functionality norms, cultural heritage, museum, mental health geography.

    Heteronormativ sexuell dramaturgi med queera sprickor: Hur kvinnor med vulvasmärtor hanterar sexuell praktik2012In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 1, p. 7-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on how norms for gender and (hetero)sexuality intersect with vulvar pain, sexual practice and bodily sensations, in relation to a study where 21 women suffering from vulvar pain have been interviewed. Sexual practices or lack of them is part of what constitutes us as subjects. How we perform our sexuality is structured by how sex is constructed in society and culture. In a heteronormative culture vaginal intercourse is part of sexual practice, and women suffering from vulvar pain cannot fully participate in this expected sexual practice. This means that they actively must respond to sexual discourses on what is considered as “normal” sexuality. In order to avoid pain and get pleasure out of the sexual encounter they need to change and redefine their sexual practice, and during this process norms for gender and sexuality are challenged. The difficulty of participating in vaginal penetration is affecting these women differently depending on what kind of partner the woman has sex with, her own age and her experiences of sexual encounters. The results show that heteronormative scripts for sexual practice are strong and enduring even among heterosexual women who renegotiate their sexual practice. Although some of them have good sex without vaginal intercourse they still feel a lack in relation to their male partner. For women having sex with women the sexual script is less culturally choreographed and therefore it becomes easier to choose sexual practices that minimize the vulvar pain. Norms and strategies for sexual practice and gender performance vary among women having sex with women and women having sex with men.

    "Prostitutionsfrågan": Perspektiv och nycklar till en grumlig debatt2012In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 3, p. 101-123Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Summary

    Since the American “Sex Wars” were fought in the 80’s between different strands of feminism, feminists have been arguing about how to interpret the issue of prostitution. The positions taken differ in points of departure, analytical focus, epistemological claims and of course in suggested solutions. This article examines this heated debate, as articulated within the Western context during the last some twenty years, suggesting a way of structuring it. Using distinctions such as analytical-empirical, pragmatic-idealistic and fragmented-coherent, I discuss how the different approaches to the issue of prostitution are phrased. In the article, I discuss six key points of conflict.

    1. Is prostitution understood as a) purely an act or b) also as a gendered institution, with an impact on society as a whole?

    2. Who is visible in the discussion about “prostitution”? a) Women in prostitution, who are made equivalent with prostitution, or b) the buying men, who are seen as key actors in prostitution?

    3. How is “the whore” interpreted? As a) an empirical figure, embodiedby the sex working woman, breaking gendered norms, or as b) a gendered filter of interpretation through which women are measured and constructed as women, manifesting gendered norms?

    4. How is prostitution understood? “Per se”/in idealistic terms or as it manifests it self/in a pragmatic terms? In other words, is prostitution a) taken to be impossible to abolish but possible to reform, as to become what it really is – sex work – or is it b) seen as important to make fundamental changes in society, which can’t come about as long as prostitution is accepted?

    5. What is seen as negotiated in the prostitution contract? Is it a) sex that is bought and sold, or is it b) women’s sexual but non reproductive bodies, i.e. women’s accessibility for men?

    6. Is prostitution taken as a) a postulate, laying ground for how we should define politics and policy, or b) as a practice that can and should be challenged and politically contested.
