    Cars, motoring and sustainable movement(s)2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern society can be said to be a "car society" since it has been designed to fit the needs of the private car. This paper discusses the relation between cars, mobility, planning and sustainability in cultural perspectives. It discuss the historical roots and contemporary landscape of car culture and the sociocultural factors that reproduce it, such as planning and infrastructure (urban-rural-traffic); the car as sign of status, adulthood, flexibility, masculinity, and the car as "space of one’s own" in embodied habits. In recent years, cars and mobility have been subject to several studies and interdisciplinary research projects. Many of these highlight the ambivalent position of the car: on the one hand as symbol of individual freedom, mobility and speed, but on the other as the source of problems as fatal accidents, pollution, smog, noise, congestion, road rage, barrier creation, unjust land use, erosion of natural cultural heritage, reduced bodily exercise/movement, hazardous particles and not at least climate change. An important point is the gap between science and policy: for decades research has problematised increased motoring, and with the goals to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, most research and government agencies says that driving need to reduce. In spite of this motorized mobility is reinforced on local, national and global level. However we can initiatives around the world that that challenge "car-normativity", which will be discussed. What kinds of mobility and movements are sustainable for humans, other beings and the world?

    I naturens teater: Kultur- och miljösociologiska analyser av naturhistoriska utställningar och filmer2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a study of constructions of reality in visual and textual representations in current exhibitions in the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm with comparisons to the Natural History Museum in Gothenburg and minor excursions to other museums. The study also includes seven giant screen films in Cosmonova: an IMAX theatre which is part of the Swedish Museum of Natural History.

    The study consists of three parts: I. Historical and theoretical contextualisation: The emergence of museums is understood as an aspect of modernity and nature, and analytical concepts from semiotics, deconstruction and discourse analysis are presented and discussed. This part also includes a discussion of anthropomorphism and andropocentric stereotyping and a study of the emergence of the environmental question in society, science, museums and in the disciplines of sociology and cultural studies. II. Empirical analysis: Starting with questions what stories modern exhibitions in museums of natural history tell and how animals, bodies, humans and the environment are represented in the exhibitions and films I discuss different aspects of the dualism of nature and culture in relation to other dualisms such as animal/human, nature/society and ecology/economy. The dualism nature/culture that is expressed in exclusions of conventional signs for human culture is problematic from an environmental perspective. I pose the question of whether or not the marginalized phenomenon of the cabinet of curiosity that combine both “naturalia” and “artificialia” and displays phenomena classified as abnormal, can provide a key to narratives about co-evolution, environmental issues and variations in morphology and behaviour. III. Discussion: The potential for transcending the dualism of nature and culture, both theoretically-and practically-speaking, and particularly in relation to the environmental question, is discussed, as is the possibility that museums can be(come) reflexive sub-political arenas for dialogues between politics, science and people.

    Kritiska kultur- och naturarvsstudier: Rapport från Association of Critical Heritage Studies Inaugural Conference: Re/theorizing Heritage, Göteborg, Sverige, 5-8 Juni 20122012In: Nordisk Museologi, ISSN 1103-8152, no 2, p. 121-127Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The inaugural conference of The Association of Critical Heritage Studies, on the theme of re-theorising heritage studies, took place in Gothenburg, Sweden in June 2012. It aimed to start interdisciplinary conversations that will serve to develop relevant theory across national borders and move away from the conventional understanding of heritage as objectively given places, objects and traditions. Instead heritage is to be regarded as something created in the interaction between different interests and power relations. This perspective was relatively consistent throughout the conference, where a wide range of topics were presented in more than 400 different papers. Concepts such as representation, “the other” and post-colonialism reflected the development of theory in this field over recent years, while considerations of relational ontology, body, affect and connection-seeking theorising were a signal of the development to come.

    På vandring i naturens teater: Natur och kultur på naturhistoriska riksmuseet2005In: Kulturstudier i Sverige. Nationell forskarkonferens 13-15 juni, 2005, Norrköping, Sweden: ACSIS konferenspapers, 2005Conference paper (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    Med utgångspunkt i en studie av Naturhistoriska riksmuseets samtida utställningar, samt museihistoriska tillbakablickar, diskuterar papret berättelser om naturens ordning och (re)produktionen av natur och kultur. Det analytiska perspektivet är semotiskt- dekonstruktivistiskt. En utgångspunkt är att distinktionen mellan natur (naturalia) och kultur (artificialia), vilken kommer till uttryck i både vetenskapernas och museernas indelningar, och i utställningarnas exkluderingar av konventionella tecken för människa och kultur, är problematisk då miljöproblemen kan sägas hända i skärningspunkten mellan dessa. Exempel på mer konkreta frågeställningar: Vilken roll spelar bildkonstens konstruktion av naturen? Hur framställs människan? Hur kommer ekologin in i utställningarna och i så fall vilken ekologi? Hur kommer kulturella värderingar och föreställningar om kön och normalitet till uttryck? Vad betyder kuriosans försvinnande….?

    (Re)moving Bodies in Museums2013In: I rörelse / On the Move, 2013, p. 60-61Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper revolves around cases of movements and re-movements of animal and human bodies in museums, mirroring ideological movements and changes, movements of the (physical but non-living) bodies in time and space as well as representations of time and space, also in meta-exhibitions about historical exhibitions. The focus lies on the non-living bodies in natural history museums, i.e. stuffed animals, skeletons, anatomical preparations and models but this does not exclude the living, breathing, moving, feeling and thinking bodies that gaze at the dead. The paper is part of the project Zoo/mbies and Nature Morte: Bodies in Museums of Natural History 1800–2007, in which museums in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Uppsala and London are explored. It also relates to the question of how heritage is constructed and transformed, and how the nature/culture-dualism still forms these constructions.
