    Breaking bored: Negotiating spatial boredom in the greaser culture2015In: Gender, Place and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography, ISSN 0966-369X, E-ISSN 1360-0524, Vol. 22, no 9, p. 1252-1268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I discuss how the experience of boredom becomes a vital part of the narratives and practices of a group of young greasers in a peri-urban community in Sweden. The ethnographic material originates from fieldwork carried out among the local ‘Volvo greasers’, aged between 15 and 19 years, at the local youth centre and the car park in a peri-urban community in Sweden in 2010. The aim of the article is to understand how place, personhood and social relations are intertwined in the greaser culture by introducing the concept ofspatial boredom, which strives to illuminate the greasers' active engagement and negotiation with the experience of boredom. In light of this, the semantics of spatial boredom – the community's geographical placement as boring, reactive rather than active, static rather than dynamic – a symbolic link to femininity, domesticity, safety, routine and hence immanence is established. The orientation towards a ‘dangerous’, masculine-coded public space is reinforcing a split between both the feminine and the masculine and the public and the private.

    Careless men, careless masculinities?: Understanding young men's risk-taking with motor vehicles as violations2014In: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 191-204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Young men's risk-taking with motor vehicles regularly generates public debate as a traffic safety issue, often resulting in various policy suggestions, such as curfews or raising of the driving licence age. This article is based on an ethnographic study of the ‘Volvo greasers’, young men and women aged 15 to 19, in a peri-urban community in Sweden. The focus is particularly on the greasers' risk-taking practices with motor vehicles, such as speeding and drifting. In order to understand how the greasers' risk-taking with vehicles is manifested, talked about and practised, the article critically engages with the contexts of the risk-taking practices and their effects at both the material and the discursive levels. Through contextualization as an analytical tool, a situated concept of risk-taking is developed, which illustrates how intersecting norms and conceptions around age, gender, class and place are practised at the local level. The aim is to explore the greasers' risk-related talk and practices through the notion of ‘control’: how different activities, practices and recountings of particular situations together function to control vehicles, the narrative around risk-taking and the emotions involved. I argue that the foregrounding of these controlling practices in the greaser culture legitimates a lack of care for oneself and others, which constructs the greaser men as not only carefree, but also careless. Consequently, I suggest that an approach to risk-taking practices as a kind of violation would be beneficial, due in part to their potentially harmful consequences and in part to the construction of careless men as a consequence of the controlling practices.

    Children on the move: Children's everyday mobility and access to public space in Sweden2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Existing research on children's mobility assumes that children's independent mobility is important for children's development, health and wellbeing. A decline in children's movement has occurred in the last thirty years (Björklid & Gummesson 2013, cf. Hillman, Adams & Whitelegg 1990, Van der Spek & Noyon, 1995; Tranter 1993).  The amount of cycling children has halved since the 1980s (Larsson 2012). This trend can be attributed to an increased institutionalization of childhood (James, Jenks and Prout 1998) and research has shown that children's decreased mobility largely depends on parents risk compensation (SKL 2013, Valentine 2004, Adams 1993, Thomsen 2005). Children's activities in general are governed by adults, and parents rather drive their children by car than let them walk or bike to school or leisure activities. Another consequence of the car hegemony is that children's areas for informal play in public space are disappearing, at least in the urban areas.

    Set against this background, the presentation will discuss the preliminary and tentative findings of an ongoing research project on children’s mobility and children’s places in the community. The research project is focused on how children perceive their physical environment, how they apprehend their everyday mobility and mobility-related factors such as freedom, independence, safety, security and risk.

    The material is comprised of ethnographic material with children aged 7-13 from five city districts (ranging from white middle-class to ethnically diverse working class areas) and one peri-urban locality in Uppsala county in Sweden. The children have participated in walks to school and in their residential area with me, carried out a photography mission, filled in a week long diary of their movement and been interviewed. I have also interviewed the children’s parents or custodians, and carried out observations of the physical environment in the children’s communities.

    Hypermobile, sustainable, or safe?: Imagined childhoods in the neo-liberal transport system2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Existing research on children’s mobility assumes that children’s independent mobility is important for children’s development, health and wellbeing. According to the Swedish Government’s transport policy objectives from 2008-2009 (SOU 2008/09: 93), particular importance should be paid to children and young people, with a strong focus on safety and security, and independent mobility. A decline in children’s independent mobility has occurred in the last thirty years, leaving less children killed in traffic. Against this background, the paper’s objective is to, inspired by Bacchi’s (2009) problematisation-oriented discourse analysis, investigate how children are addressed in regional and municipal transport policies in urban Sweden. How are children conceptualized in transport policies? The policy analysis reveals three rationales which produce particular subjects: a hypermobile subject framed within a discourse of economic growth, a sustainable subject within a caring rationale, and lastly, a safe subject within a risk rationale. The discursive absence of children as a social group is discussed, in relation to a parallel sub-discourse of children as particularly protection-worthy. These discourses produce children as either political non-subjects or apolitical subjects, complicating the formulation of political demands on the basis of children as a social group. In conclusion, the paper discusses the effects of age-blind policy making in transportation politics in relation to childhood in general and to children’s mobility in particular.

    Space and Sensibility: Young Men’s Risk-Taking with Motor Vehicles2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this ethnographic study of “Volvo greasers” [Volvoraggare] in a peri-urban community in Sweden, risk-taking practices with motor vehicles, such as speeding and drifting, are explored and analyzed in relation to age, gender, class and place. Young men’s risk-taking with motor vehicles regularly generates public debate as a traffic safety issue, often resulting in various policy suggestions, such as curfews or raising of the driving licence age. Seldom are these suggested solutions based on critical ethnographic research where intersections of age, gender, class and place are highlighted. The study is based on ethnographic fieldwork, that is, participant observation, and informal and formal interviews, with greaser men and women between the ages of 15 and 19, as well as formal interviews with pupils at the local high school and with youth centre staff in the local community.

    The study has two overarching aims. The first is empirical: to make visible an under-studied area of contemporary youth culture in Sweden – the (Volvo) greasers. In order to understand how the greasers’ risk-taking with vehicles is manifested, talked about and practised, the thesis critically engages with the contexts of the risk-taking practices and their effects at both the material and the discursive levels. The second aim is theoretical. Through contextualization as an analytical tool, a theoretical contribution of the thesis is the development of a situated concept of risktaking. The thesis illustrates how intersecting norms and conceptions around age, gender, class and place are practised at the local level, thus highlighting the social character of risk--‐taking practices. A central analytical notion is the greasers’ negotiation of place, developed through the concept of spatial boredom, which affects their construction of personhood and their social practices. In light of this, the thesis suggests that situated risk-taking with motor vehicles benefit from being formulated as violations, which furthers the understanding of young people’s risk-taking practices with motor vehicles and paves the way for more multi-faceted discussions in theory, as well as in practice and policy-making around traffic safety.

    The Dangerous Other?: Towards a Contextual Approach to Men’s Risk-Taking with Motor Vehicles2014In: Masculinities and the Criminological Field: Control, Vulnerability and Risk-Taking / [ed] Ingrid Lander, Signe Ravn & Nina Jon, Ashgate, 2014, 1Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over recent decades criminological research has changed from a gender-blind discipline which equated crime with men and thus ignored questions about gender, to an approach that studied gender by showing statistical differences between men and women, and then finally to a more inclusive and elaborate gender-theoretical approach to crime and crime control. However, despite this development, research on gender - and in particular research on gendered norms and the construction and enactment of masculinities - within the criminological field has been unable to keep up with developments in gender research. Since 1990, only a few anthologies with a gender-theoretical orientation focusing on masculinities within the criminological research field have been published. Many of the theoretical developments in gender research still have difficulties in reaching into mainstream criminology, partly because such developments are often published in feminist and/or gender theoretical journals. This volume both problematizes and renders visible conceptions and norms regarding male behaviour and masculinities and shows how these affect the criminological field through providing a theoretically sound and clear gender perspective to this field of research. With sections based around the following three themes: negotiations of masculinity in institutional settings, vulnerable masculinities and risk-taking and masculinities, this volume will be of interest to scholars of criminology, sociology, social work and gender studies, as well as policy-makers, and law enforcement professionals.

    Theorising, men, masculinities, place and space: local, national and transnational contexts and interrelations2014In: Masculinities and Place / [ed] Andrew Gorman-Murray and Peter Hopkins, Ashgate, 2014, 1Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Masculinities and Place bring together an impressive range of high-profile and emerging researchers to consolidate and expand new domains of interest in the geographies of men and masculinities. It is structured around key and emerging themes within recently completed and on-going research about the intersections between men, masculinities and place. Building upon broader themes in social and cultural geographies, cultural economy and urban/rural studies, the collection is organised around the key themes of: theorising masculinities and place; intersectionality; home; family; domestic labour; work; and health and well-being.
