    Living Alone Together: Individualized Collectivism in Swedish Communal Housing2019In: Sociology, ISSN 0038-0385, E-ISSN 1469-8684, Vol. 53, no 5, p. 900-915Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, situated in urban Stockholm, communal housing stands out as highly individualized. The residents positively appraise their way of living, not primarily for values related to collective solidarity, but for enabling autonomy, privacy and easy exits. Rather than theorizing this as a contradiction, communal housing is framed as a case of individualized collectivism, a belonging structure that is evaluated for fostering interpersonal relations with a high degree of independency. The article discusses the notion of Swedish state individualism as an explanatory backdrop and argues that it is the existence of a collective frame – in the shape of a historically embedded welfare program and an everyday housing platform – that enables the residents to sustain their individualized lives. Through an analysis of the residents’ negotiations around self and solidarity, autonomy and dependency, communal housing unfolds as an everyday response to a widespread tension between individualized societies and people’s search for community.

    Rethinking intimacy: Semi-anonymous spaces and transitory attachments in Argentine tango dancing2018In: Current Sociology, ISSN 0011-3921, E-ISSN 1461-7064, Vol. 66, no 3, p. 356-372Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although intimacy is an area characterized by great variety and complexity, both popular and academic discourses have traditionally revolved around a restricted number of associations, of which the family, the romantic couple and friendship bonds have resided at the very centre. In this article the author argues that an analytical shift that addresses intimacy in terms of a relational quality - a specific mode of interaction and a particular experience of closeness - instead of a set of relationships, may assist in exploring a wider range of phenomena. This approach is used to study Argentine tango dancing. Ethnographic fieldwork locates the search to the dim-lit dancehalls of Buenos Aires, San Francisco and Stockholm, and accounts for experiences of transitory semi-anonymous attachments. The study concludes tango to be a multifold intimate arena that unveils how complex webs of feelings are entangled with the social organization of attachments.

    Stunder av total sammansmältning: Essä i programboken för teaterföreställningen Ocean2018Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Essä i programboken för teaterföreställningen Ocean. Pjäsen handlar om olika former av intimitet och utgår från forskningsprojektet "Intimitetens sociala former: Närhetspraktik och identitet i kollektivt boende, husdjursrelationer och pardans". Projektet, som finansieras av Vetenskapsrådet, undersöker kollektivboenden, relationen mellan människor och djur, ridskolor, stödgrupper för sexmissbrukare och dansentusiaster. Pjäsen inkluderar även ett särskilt fokus på relationer över nätet. Pjäsen är skriven och regisserad av Paula Stenström Öhman. Pjäsen kunde förverkligas bland annat tack vare ett anslag från Riksbankens jubileumsfond, genom projektet Sociologi för scen.

    The making of an egalitarian elite: school ethos and the production of privilege2019In: British Journal of Sociology, ISSN 0007-1315, E-ISSN 1468-4446, Vol. 70, no 2, p. 551-568Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on privilege and education often focuses on institutions that are elite in a rather traditional way, for example schools that instruct the children of the upper classes according to a reproductive logic that reinforces existing inequalities. The present article addresses the fostering of advantage from the angle of a more ambiguous case. The Global College, a municipal Swedish upper secondary school specialized in environmental issues and global justice, offers an empirical prism for discussing the cultivation of elite identification through the formative potential of an egalitarian ethos. The relation between ethics and class is examined, not only in terms of how moral stands are classed, but also by investigating into the productive capacities of such orientation. Through extensive ethnographic fieldwork, the study unfolds how a possible tension between egalitarianism and elitism resolves into a productive relation whereby the students’ incarnation of ethico‐political ideals becomes a means for developing agency, confidence, entrepreneurial skills and an overall sense of ease.

    Tourism and the Globalization of Emotions: The Intimate Economy of Tango (Routledge)2013Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, an increasing number of people from all over the world travel to Buenos Aires to dance tango. To accommodate these intimate voyagers, tourist agencies offer travel packages, including classes in tango instruction, dance shoe shopping, and special city maps pointing out the tango clubs in town. Some of these agencies even provide “taxi dancers” — mainly Argentine men, who make a living by selling themselves as dance escorts to foreign women on a short term stay. Based on a cheek-to-cheek ethnography of intimate life in the tango clubs of Buenos Aires, this book provides a passionate exploration of tango — its sentiments and symbolic orders — as well as a critical investigation of the effects of globalization on intimate economies. Throughout the chapters, the author assesses how, in an explosive economic and political context, people’s emotional lives intermingle with a tourism industry that has formed at the intersection of close embrace dances and dollars. Bringing economies of intimacy centre stage, the book describes how a global condition is lived bodily, emotionally and politically, and offers a rich, provocative contribution to theorizing today’s global flows of people, money, and fragile dreams. As the narrative charts a course across a sea of intense, immediate emotional sensations, taken-for-granted ideas about sex, romance and power twist and turn like the steps of the tango.

    Troubling romance tourism: sex, gender and class inside the Argentinean tango clubs2012In: Feminist review (Print), ISSN 0141-7789, E-ISSN 1466-4380, no 102, p. 21-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to explore and make theoretical sense of a stream of tourism that blurs the boundaries between sex, romance and intimacy, and diffuses the line between affectionate and economic relations. The empirical scope is the expanding international tourism of tango dancing-meaning the increasing number of people from all over the world travelling to Buenos Aires to dance tango and engage with the local tango culture. In contrast to women's sex tourism on the beaches of Jamaica and Ghana, the relationships evolving in the Argentinean dance halls only occasionally lead to sexual affairs and temporary romances, but they are still part of a sensual geography made up of a transnational skin-to-skin intimacy. In addition, the relations between local dancers and tourists rarely result in economic transactions of sex for money; however, they engage with a growing market of intimate dance services and ore part of the economic injustices and exotified projections of our post-colonial time. Hence, this article seeks to shed critical light over a broader area of transnational romance. The case of tango evokes new sets of critical queries regarding the trade of bodily intimacy and affection; the consequences of economic inequality in the area of heterosexual romance; and the production of class morals and racialised gender regimes. Through an exploration of these intimate practices, discourses and sets of emotions produced in this particular context, a complex landscape of market forces and close-embrace dancing unfolds.
