    Co-fielding in qualitative interviews: gender, knowledge and interaction in a study of (pro)feminist men2011In: Qualitative Inquiry, ISSN 1077-8004, E-ISSN 1552-7565, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 364-378Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article is located within research on cross-gender interviewing and concerns methodological and analytical challenges in a study of (pro) feminist men and seeks to contribute to the literature on interview interaction and the knowledge to be gained from such research experiences. The article discusses the negotiation of interviewer/interviewee interaction, practices of gender and theoretical knowledge along with how this might influence the coconstruction of interview performances. Interviewees reflexively turned narratives into theoretical analysis which turned out to be important aspects of presentation of self and in the doings of gender and feminism. The concept of "cofielding" is introduced to address these interview performances but is suggested to have a wider applicability to studies of researcher/researched relationships characterized by discursive closeness and overlapping positions. Cofielding practices point to how the doings of interviewer/interviewee and power relationships can be performed and negotiated-even played with in the speech act of interview interaction.

    IngenMansLand: om män som feminister, intervjuframträdanden och passerandets politik2011Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores constructions of gendered and gender political positions and practices of men identifying as ‘feminist’. The analysis is based on qualitative interviews with 28 men aged 20-34. At issue is how seemingly contradictory positions for men as feminists are made comprehensible in theory and practice.

    An introduction showcase theoretical discussions on gendered experiences and the possibilities of men being feminist, mainly from standpoint, radical feminist and poststructuralist radical constructionist perspectives. Men doing feminism emerge as an unresolved complex matter. This is followed by a critical discussion of state feminism, double emancipation and research on men and masculinities in the welfare state. The support for men’s participation, predominantly as white heterosexual fathers, in the Swedish gender equality project has consequences for the construction of men as potentially ‘new’, ‘good’ gender equal feminist subjects. In the construction of profeminist positions in interview performances, interviewees are located in-between the radical feminist, poststructuralist and gender equality perspectives on men, masculinity and feminism.

    Two themes involve an implementation of the concept of passing and introduce the analytical concept of co-fielding. Passing consists of the microsociological process of making radical and deconstructive profeminist positions authentic and yet being able to manage masculinity in homosocial contexts.

    Co-fielding refers to the conjoint interlacing of experiences, knowledge and meaning-making in interview interaction where relations of researcher-researched are characterized by discursive closeness and overlapping positions. Co-fielding practices affect the outcomes of co-construction of interview performances, the negotiation of gender and power relations and the reflexive use of (in this case feminist) knowledge in qualitative interviews.

    In analyzing the presentations of self, ambiguous meanings of profeminist positions emerge and the doing, undoing and redoing of feminism and masculinity appear multi-faceted. Radical feminism and radical constructionism seem intersected in making men’s feminist positions comprehensible. Such rebellious positions emerge as oxymoronic and, when critically brought into the gender equality context, located in a no man’s land out of place.

    In all, the thesis seeks to bring together theoretical, national and empirical locations of profeminist men, and in a concluding chapter also explore issues of ethics in feminist research and cross-gender interviewing.

    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses some aspects of the 'Man Question' in feminism, by way of the analysis of men's diverse gender-conscious positionings in relation to gender, gender equality and feminism. It builds on earlier work, making use of theoretical models in feminist literature combined with the micro-sociological concept of passing. The article is primarily concerned with the theoretical and empirical complexities, contradictions and ambiguities of men's positionings, as when they are self-defined as 'feminists' (or similar identifications) in radical or deconstructive ways. In this, Swedish interview data are used. Sweden is considered particularly interesting, with a qualified societal consensus on gender equality and a broadly positive place accorded to men's relations with feminism. The authors argue in the final section that there is a need to further dialogue between analyses of men/masculinities and the multidimensionality of feminisms, as well as a need for more empirical studies of men's different (pro) feminist positionings in order to elaborate the theoretical implications of different social contexts. The framing presented seeks to provide greater possibilities for such complex, nuanced and situated understandings of men's relation to feminism, theoretically, analytically and politically.
