    (Re)assembling Our Past, Present and Future: The Slovene Ethnographic Museum as a Platform for Dialogue2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to illustrate and explain contemporary interactions between Western ethnographic museums and broader society. It is based on one central case study, the Slovene Ethnographic Museum (SEM) in Ljubljana, Slovenia. A majority of informants expressed a wish for the museum to be a platform for dialogue. In connection to their visions, this thesis discusses the potential of ethnographic museums to work towards promoting and facilitating inclusivity and social change as well as some tensions that arise from this development. This is done through an analysis of ethnographic data on museum employees’ views on the relevance and responsibilities of the museum and its status as a cultural and scientific institute. New museology and actor-network theory are used as primary analytical tools. A responsibility to represent ‘correctly’ in the museum is related to the influence that tangible and intangible heritages, as actants, can have on society. It is argued that cultural heritage could be instrumental in achieving positive social change. However, there is a core tension between the envisioned position of the museum and the power hierarchy that it maintains through its identity as a scientific institute that shapes dominant knowledge.

    Trash to Treasure: Art between Contemporary and Conventional Ecological Practices in Arkhangelsk, Russia2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Recycling and solid waste management are a serious problem in the Russian North. The necessary infrastructure, as well as the awareness of the citizens is missing to resolve this problem efficiently. Artists and environmental activists have therefore looked for a way to make people aware of the need for recycling and initiate social change in this regard. The medium that has been chosen by activists and artists alike is art. By involving people in creating an art object or by presenting art to them, the activists and artists hope to initiate awareness concerning our consumption patterns and, like this, show them that recycling is one of many solutions.

    This thesis should demonstrate how intertwined the connections between the different groups of people, but also with the (art) objects are. This is done by drawing on the actor-network-theory by Bruno Latour as an analytical tool to understand these connections. Key component in this theory, as well as the artist-activist- collective is reassembling. By constantly reassembling people into new projects, as well as household items into art objects, the collective manages to remain visible to the public and to be flexible enough to react to changing needs.

    'I'm from Barcelona': Boundaries and Transformations Between Catalan and Spanish Identities2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last decade or so, the multiple political factions in Catalonia have adopted pro-independence initiatives in their platforms following the 2008 financial crisis. Catalonia’s position as representing a minority culture in the face of the centralized administration of Madrid presents a contentious history of fighting for the right ‘to be’, culminating in what today is viewed by many as an identity crisis.             

    Drawing on fieldwork conducted in Barcelona, this thesis examines how informants construct and transform their socio-cultural identities in the framework of the independence movement in Catalonia. It places informants’ experiences in the theoretical realm of ethnic boundaries, analyzing central issues of Catalan language normalization vis à vis the historical imposition of Spanish as the national language. These themes are broadened in light of the recent upsurge of Catalan secession, and explores identity politics within the background of Spanish and Catalan nationalisms.

    Abstract [en]

    Initiatives in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are getting more pronounced than we as a society are used to, and spurs confusion over the perceived dichotomy between corporate ethicising and profitability. H&M is a company engaging in these initiatives, and their manifest of CSR will be analysed for discourse content. Themes such as social institutions, contrasted groups, individuality and collectivism and agency emerge within the pages of the H&M group’s sustainability report.

    "Grattis till studenten. Grattis till arbetslösheten": En antropologisk studie om gymnasieskolans ungdomar2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats handlar om vad ett gymnasium för en gymnasieelev kan vara, den diskuterar anledningar till att en ung person idag väljer att studera på ett gymnasium och på ett visst program. Den handlar också om identitet, omgivning och framtidstro i förhållande till gymnasieskolan. För att genomföra studien har tre djupintervjuer användes som materiel. Informanterna är tidigare gymnasieelever som tagit studenten under år 2016. Som teori och forskningsbakgrund används antropologisk forskning men också andra forskningsområden så som till exempel pedagogisk forskning som på något sätt är kopplade till gymnasiet och de tre temana identitet, omgivning och framtidstro. I förhållande till syftet diskuteras en skillnad informanterna upplevt från grundskolan till gymnasieskolan där eleverna upplevt att det finns en skillnad bland lärarintresse som påverkat informanterna på olika vis. Informanterna belyser också den etniska bakgrundens betydelse och rasism som finns i gymnasieskolan. Uppsatsen diskuterar också vännernas betydelse i gymnasiet samt bilden av framtiden som både påverkar och inte påverkar elevernas uttryck och handlingar under gymnasietiden.

    ‘The way we are speechless doesn’t mean our heads are empty’ - an analysis of Rwandan hip-hop and its ambivalences as a youth cultural expression tool in Kigali2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Anthropologists have frequently used music in general and popular music in particular as a means to gain a perspective into everyday realities of young Africans lives. Attempting to place myself amongst this range of researchers, I use the position of Rwandan hip-hop as a point of departure to examine how young men in Kigali relate to and shape their realities in terms of politics, freedom of expression, and the creation of space and opportunities in the Rwandan society.

    My study is based on two and a half months of fieldwork in Kigali during the period between August and October of 2013. The empirical material upon which my arguments rely consists of interviews with young hip-hop Rwandans located in Kigali, who were almost exclusively male. It is also drawn from classical anthropological methods of participant observations and daily partaking in the lives of my informants. My analytical understanding of this material is mainly based upon notions of agency and structure, and contextualized within contemporary Africanist scholars’ research on modern music and youth.

    By looking at the historical context of Rwanda, the current state of youth in Kigali, and the contemporary atmosphere of politics and hip-hop music, I seek to understand the contradictive role of music as an arena for youth to express themselves. Through the stories of young hip-hop men, I describe and communicate their perceptions of constrains related to historical and socio-political sensitivities, feelings of fear connected to outspokenness, and alternative means to voice their opinions.

    I illustrate how these young men use innovative strategies and metaphorical language as a way to negotiate with some of these constrains as well as to influence each other and embody senses of oppositional opinions and collective empowerment. I also examine how national politics and governmental initiatives have increasingly become intertwined with the music and how it is trying to take advantage of its attractiveness as a youth medium.

    Ultimately, I discuss how the impact of Rwandan hip-hop can be seen as double-ended, serving the interests of both governmental policies and the youth who in different ways are trying to liberate themselves from political constrains, and how this affect the empowering potential of the music.

    Scorched communities: recovery and learning after wildfire2016Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2014, towards the end of a hot and very dry summer in Sweden, a fire broke out in the forests of the county of Västmanland. Fanned by high winds, this forest fire rapidly swept out of control, developing into a major disaster and national emergency. The acute phase continued for eleven days, resulting in one death, one seriously injured, 71 buildings and over 13,800 hectares of forest destroyed. Approximately 1000 persons and 1700 livestock were evacuated. In the aftermath of the fire, considerable criticism has been raised regarding the firefighting operation, communication with the affected communities and the functioning of the Swedish crisis management system in general. A number of inquiries and analyses have been initiated, some of which are still in progress. The fire has had dramatic effects on the environment, which will be clearly visible in the landscape for many years to come. Less visible, but equally far-reaching are the psychological and social consequences for the affected communities. This paper describes a project initiated in 2015 to study the impact of the Västmanland fire in affected local communities, focusing temporally on the first two years after the event. The impact is conceived of as deriving from the experience of the fire itself and its immediate physical consequences, and from adjusting to physical and social changes in the local environment, but it is also taken to stem from the multiple perceptions and varying understandings among different social actors of how the event has been managed and how it has been framed in the media. In the project these different perspectives are reflected in analyses of reporting in the media, examination of inquiry reports and other materials, observations and interviews with key actors, various stakeholders and community representatives. The purpose of the project is to understand how people and organizations have coped with and recovered from this particular environmental disaster in order to identify factors that support or prevent short term recovery and medium term resilience at the individual and community level. An overall outline of the project will be presented, together with some preliminary findings relating to implications of the post-fire period for recovery and learning processes.

    Take Care!: The Ideal Patient and Self-Governing2019Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, a phenomenological approach is taken as the purpose is to discuss how the healthcare experiences of Swedish patients with chronic illness are affected by political state reforms and governing technologies. The thesis compares the discourse of Swedish healthcare policy with the discourse of healthcare in practice. Swedish healthcare has gone through major changes during the past decades, which have affected the state-to-patient relationship. This shift involved a transfer of responsibility from the state to its citizens, enabled through patient empowerment. In this change, a new ideal patient-role emerged, which is the patient as an informed and active consumer. What this thesis shows is the existence of a discrepancy between the ideal patient-role in governmental writing and the same ideal patient-role in the reality of the healthcare system. The ethnography consists of a literature study of healthcare policy documents and interviews with ten informants about their experiences of healthcare, in connection with the chronic diseases that affected their lives. The aim has been to examine the governing qualities of healthcare policy and practice, implementing Foucault’s theory of governmentality and technologies of the self.

    Ecocertifications and quality labels: For whom and why, in the case of Laponia.2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract There are a lot of ecocertifications in Sweden for a variety of different categories; for example the Swan, which is a label for both hotels and products; KRAV, a label for farms and what farms pro- duce; Nature’s Best, a label for tourist adventures; the Sápmi Experience, a newly developed label for Sámi tourism, and The Green Key, a certification offered by Håll Sverige Rent for hostels, ho- tels, mountain cabins and camping grounds. Nature’s Best and the Green Key I have chosen as the focus for this paper, because they are the most relevant for my research. I will also give some atten- tion to Sápmi Experience because it is an interesting development in indigenous tourism. In the World Heritage area of Laponia, where I conducted fieldwork, there are several actors that have in- terest in the ecotourism business. Some of the actors are Sámi, the indigenous people whose princi- pal livelihood in Laponia is reindeer herding, and some are non-Sámi, like the Swedish Tourist As- sociation (STF) or other small-scale businesses. Some of them have the Nature’s Best label on their adventures, some do not. I find the Sámi culture and way of life very interesting, and since they are a big part of the World Heritage area Laponia landscape and an indigenous people, it was natural for me include them in this thesis. In this thesis I want to address the questions of for whom and why there are ecocertifications and quality markings. Are they for tourists, for traveling agencies, for people living in popular tourist areas, or perhaps for the environment?

    Beyond ”Gender and Stir”: Reflections on gender and SSR in the aftermath of African conflicts2012Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    As a policy field largely characterised by handbooks and manuals, gender and Security Sector Reform (SSR) has been insufficiently studied and analysed. Analytical discussion of what gendering SSRmeans is quite rare, as is the study of the already gendered nature of the security institutions that are the subject of intervention. This policy dialogue unpacks aspects of the discourses and practices regarding gender and SSR. It highlights limitations and problems both in the conceptualisation of gender and its incorporation into practical SSR work. The publication also demonstrates how researchers and policymakers often have divergent views of what gendering SSR means. Finally, it calls for closer and more constructive dialogue between researchers and practitioners, a dialogue which acknowledges the conditions and constraints in these two spheres of work.

    Abstract [en]

    I first encountered an Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) manifesto in 1997, a tattered one-page ten-point program. Some ten years later, with peace talks held in Juba (south Sudan) that started in 2006 but ended some two years later, my file with LRA written statements has grown big. This is basically also the timeframe that I cover in this chapter. Some LRA documents have been given to me by diaspora contacts in Sweden and the UK, a few I have downloaded from the Internet – then often copies of documents circulating on the ground – still most of them have actually been shown to me during fieldwork in Uganda, by people who put their trust in me despite a situation of severe state oppression. There is a clear continuity in claims put forward in the LRA documents that I have gathered throughout the years, and I will present something of a rarity in the academic literature on the war in northern Uganda. My narrative will also function as an implicit chronology.

    For God and My Life: War and Cosmology in Northern Uganda2005Ingår i: No peace no war: An Anthropology of Contemporary Armed Conflict / [ed] Paul Richards, Athens: Ohio University Press, 2005, s. 98-116Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, I hold that today’s conflict in northern Uganda, although fought on local grounds, is international and even global in character. Worldwide flows of imagery, weaponry and humanitarian aid entangle with local socio-political realities, in a way typical for most small-scale and low-intensity wars at the turn of the millennium. Alliances on the regional level add to the complexity of local battle scenes. In the local discontent, my informants articulated these complexities. “The surroundings are bad”, they often said. In discussing important aspects of a life with bad surroundings, my chapter focuses on the local lifeworld, and on actions, interpretations and explanations that are essential to any understanding, academic or popular, of the conflict. In pursuing this aim I investigate how non-combatant people in the war zone understand and explain the rebels’ violent practices on the ground, but also how they relate to the fact that the international community has become increasingly and inescapably entangled with the politics and practices of war. On the existential level, I propose people actively practice a kind of knowing by engagement. To be able to highlight this I put emphasis on meanings in use. Such meanings are never fixed but negotiated in an interactive socio-cultural and political process of interpretation and counter-interpretation, including not only the most influential agents, like the rebel movement, the Ugandan government or international relief organisations, but also the ordinary people with direct experience of the war.

    UNT Debatt, 2 juli 2006:

    De fredstrevare som nu görs i Uganda bör självklart stödjas av Sverige. Rebellarmén i Uganda har accepterat alla krav som södra Sudans regering ställt. En bättre möjlighet till fredssamtal i regionen har inte funnits sedan 1994, skriver Sverker Finnström.

    Humanitarian death and the magic of global war in Uganda2012Ingår i: War, Technology, Anthropology: / [ed] Koen Stroeken, Oxford: Berghahn Books , 2012, Vol. 55, s. 106-119Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In view of the 2005 unsealing of the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrants for the Lord’s Resistance Army/Movement leadership, this paper sketches a violent intersection of international interventions and war as played out in Uganda. By 2005 local realities had become firmly entangled with larger regional and even global warscapes­, an entanglement that still today perpetuates conflicts in the wider region. The paper argues that the intersection of the local and the global is part of the magical terror of war, produced not primarily by any Africanness but in the emplacement of global forces on the African scene. A most prominent feature of magical terror is the making and constant remaking of a master narrative which reduces a murky reality of globalized war into a black-and-white story of the modern Ugandan government and its international partners in development defending the noncombatant citizenry against the Lord’s Resistance Army/Movement.

    Abstract [en]

    This article aims at exemplifying war’s violation of cosmologies as well as of people, and the ways in which experiences of war and violence are domesticated in cosmological terms as strategies of copying. I argue that the diverging experiences of the anthropologist and of her/his assistants and informants, can fruitfully be communicated through an intercultural understanding of the conflict at issue, and of its local implications. Such a communication can provide us with a framework for dealing with the uncertainties of research in war.

    Abstract [en]

    The global success of the film KONY 2012 by Invisible Chil­dren, Inc., manifests far greater magical powers than those of Joseph Kony and his ruthless Lord’s Resistance Army, which it portrays. The most promi­nent feature of the Invisible Children lobby is the making and constant remaking of a master narrative that depoliticizes and dehistoricizes a murky reality of globalized war into an essentialized black-and-white story. The magic of such a digestible storyline, with Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony as a global poster boy for evil personified, not only plays into the hands of the oppres­sive Ugandan government but has also become handy for the US armed forces as they seek to increase their presence on the African conti­nent. As the US-led war on terror is renewed and expanded, Invisible Chil­dren’s humanitarian slogan, “Stop at nothing”, has proven to be exception­ally selective, manifesting the occult economy of global activism that calls for military interventions.

    Living With Bad Surroundings: War and Existential Uncertainty in Acholiland, Northern Uganda2003Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    War has ravaged Acholiland in northern Uganda since 1986. The Ugandan army is fighting a rebel insurgency group called the Lord’s Resistance Movement/Army. The study describes a brutal pattern of war, as it unfolds from historical material as well as from informants’ contemporary stories, collected during three phases of fieldwork from 1997 to 2002. Several themes are brought up for discussion, such as the imperial inheritance and contested political history; the discrepancy between the rebels’ violent insurgency practices and their written manifestos; the army’s counterinsurgency tactics and internal mass displacement; and the role of rumours, cosmology, religion and morality in war. The study acknowledges today’s global interconnectedness. Traders in war machinery have considerably fuelled the war. In addition, structural adjustment programmes and humanitarian aid become entangled with local socio-political realities. The study explores the various ways people in Acholiland struggle to establish control and balance in quotidian life in a situation of ongoing civil war. While it has been postulated that some cultures or ethnic groups in essence are more prone to war than others, it is argued here that this is not a fruitful way of analysing cultural life. Rather, as the ethnography of the study shows, cultural life is a means by which people both engage and try to comprehend existentially the realities of war and violence, and also struggle continuously to build hope for the future. This makes culturally informed practices the main means through which war and its effects are interpreted and acted upon, something that sustains people in their experience of war in social life, making war and its multiple forms of violence routines among other routines in everyday life. At the same time, the study discusses the informants’ distress about the fixation of meaning to a limited set of cultural and ethnic stereotypes that propaganda of war and chauvinistic politics impose upon the local moral world and the national order of things. Guiding tools throughout the study are the Acholi concepts of piny marac and piny maber: “bad surroundings” and “good surroundings.”

    Living with bad surroundings: War and uncertainty in northern Uganda1999Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores lived experiences of armed conflict among people in Acholiland, northern Uganda. It argues that today’s conflict in Acholiland, although fought on local grounds, is global in character. The paper highlights lived experiences of war and coping that are essential to any understanding of the conflict situation, and thus the focus of the paper is the local. The ambition is to describe and analyse consequences of living with conflict, or “bad surroundings.” In doing so, the paper disputes any interpretation, academic or popular, that concludes that the conflict in northern Uganda is the result of essentially localised, primordial and immutable motivations, or that the conflict stems simply from inter-ethnic fighting for regional secession or state power.

    Lord’s Resistance Army No More: Review of Amony, Evelyn, I am Evelyn Amony: Reclaiming my life from the Lord’s Resistance Army (Un of Wisconsin Press, 2015)2016Ingår i: Warscapes Magazine (Open Access)Artikel, recension (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    With the help of Erin Baines’s careful and knowledgeable editing and pertinent contextualization, Evelyn Amony has written a remarkable memoir entitled I Am Evelyn Amony: reclaiming my life from the Lord’s Resistance Army. Throughout the book there is a forceful narrative agency that is rare among works where outsiders present and edit the life histories of former child soldiers. The account is as painful as it is revealing. Amony’s story is one of “choiceless choices,” to borrow an illustrious phrase from Holocaust researcher Lawrence L. Langer: of bare life and brutal death; of being abducted into rebel ranks and forced, at a very young age, to become the wife of Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army....

    Meaningful rebels?: Young adult perceptions on the Lord’s Resistance Movement/Army in Uganda2006Ingår i: Navigating youth, generating adulthood: Social becoming in an African context / [ed] Catrine Christiansen, Mats Utas and Henrik E. Vigh, Uppsala: The Nordic Africa Institute , 2006Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper shows that rebels and non-combatant young adults alike experience a diffuse yet very real discontent and disenchantment because of increased marginalisation. Despite the internecine and counter-productive violence committed by the rebels, it is argued that there is nevertheless an increasing frustration among young adults over the fact that the political issues the rebels address are left without commentary in the public realm. Given its experience of being silenced, many young adults claimed, the LRM/A’s effort to articulate politically viable statements made sense. Young people’s stories, in public only too commonly sidestepped or reshaped, are comments on contemporary Ugandan society as such which place the rebel manifestos in relief. Their stories can deepen the understanding of contemporary African societies in emerging global realities.

    Abstract [en]

    Opinion, The Weekly Observer, 22 July 2006:

    Why are international NGOs targeted by the LRA rebels? Seldom can aid and humanitarianism of the international community be neutral in the eyes of the locals, and even less so in the eyes of the rebels. When humanitarian organisations take over many of the functions of the Ugandan government, some will also be perceived, as the government is, as a parallel partner to the army.
