    Changing food choices in a changing city: Vietnamese youth in contemporary Hanoi2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

       This thesis discusses the changing society and how the urban setting affects how and where people spend their time socializing and eating. The city of Hanoi has undergone changes, which have had an impact on people’s movements, consumption choices and street traders’ livelihood in the city. There are also issues with housing that have arisen, mainly because the city’s expanding growth. The youth of today are living in quite a different social context society than their parents and especially grandparents, due to economic reforms that have rapidly increased the foreign investment and flow of information from the outside world. This has led to some diverging and sometimes conflicting opinions arising from people of different ages possibly having other ideals and values than their parents and grandparents. The state ideals and global influences also affect people’s behaviour and opinions and food choices. I will describe the food scene and changes that have happened to it, due to foreign influences and trade. This study is mainly based on secondary sources, combined with a case study of young people’s eating out food choices based upon my own fieldwork in Hanoi, Vietnam from February to April, 2013. I will situate and contextualize what part food plays for the youths and exploring the difference between street food and fast food and why people would choose one over the other.

    Neither Here - Nor There: An Anthropological Study of Gujarati Hindu Women in the diaspora2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the 1950s, a wave of migrants left India to find work in the West. Many never returned, but instead settled in the West. There were also many Asians who left to live in East African countries. In the beginning of the 1970s, Idi Amin decided to finalise the Africanisation of Uganda. Other East African nations were also part of this trend. At that time, several thousand Asians were expelled. Among these people were many Gujarati Hindus, all with their roots in Gujarat in the north-western part of India. By various routes and in different waves of relocation, some of these people came to find new homes, for example in Britain and Sweden.

    With respect to Gujarati Hindu diaspora groups in Coventry, Britain, and Mariestad, Sweden, the author aims to answer the questions: Which factors affected what, how, or why they decided to keep or abandon some of their culture and religious traditions? How much of this process happened by choice, and how much was based on necessity due to time and circumstance? How has the size of the group of settlers, in relation to the majority living in those places, affected their choices? How might the size of the local diasporic community itself come to influence their cultural maintenance?

    In this thesis the author focuses mainly on the aspects of identity that are found in gender discourse (women’s roles) and the diaspora discourse among Gujarati Hindu women. This is done in relation to cosmology addressed to a gender discourse on how gender roles are changing in diaspora when confronted with the modern world. The main contribution is therefore not to ethnicity and identity theory in general, but in demonstrating the different determiners affecting the lives of Gujarati Hindu women in the diaspora.

    Running for Modernity: athletics, social change, and replacing Kenyan traditionalism with a modern consciousness2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Kenya has become known as a nation with an outstanding output of world class runners. Fieldwork for this thesis has been carried out in the western Rift Valley region at the town Eldoret, said to be “the home of athletes.” Through participant observation and narrative interviewing this thesis aim to display what role athletics play in processes of social change and modernization. The research questions are to examine how runners are associated with modernist discourses comparing runner’s exposure to alternative lifestyles with those that are expected by tradition. In a broad perspective, sport is in academic literature depicted a homogenizing force of identification with an increasing sameness, placelessness and standardization of modernity. In this sense this thesis aims to test this claim of homogeneity in a Kenyan setting. By describing how athletics once was introduced by the British colonialists as a tool for ‘civilization’, running may still carry on a neo-colonial projection of a modern consciousness where the ‘achievement principle’, the idea of meritocracy, individualism and striving in running are sought to replace a tradition of ascribed status with an tradition of achieving status. Finally discussed is how athletics is perceived and used in building visions of the modern Kenyan nation.

    An Ethnographic Study of 2010 Flood Affected People: “The Case of Kot-Addu village in Southern Punjab of Pakistan”2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In 2010, Pakistan’s majority of the rural population witnessed the major flash flood, which not only destroyed the infrastructure, but also led to human causalities and affected severely the entire social fabric of society. The present research is about the experiences of facing the havocs of flood by vulnerable rural people of Kot Addu, a small town located within an already underdeveloped region of Pakistan. The flood occurred due to heavy rains in the monsoon season that is the chief rainfall system in South Asia. Generally, the region is already underdeveloped and majority of the inhabitants of Kot Addu had very limited access to social, economic, and other material resources, however, flood brought havocs and exacerbated their vulnerabilities. Further, Due to cut from mainstream media news about flood of high magnitude and also because institutional neglect of State Administration, the poor villagers had to bear the excruciating damages both in terms of material and non-material things. Although every year people face small floods, called “chull” in the local language, this time they faced the biggest flood in the history of Pakistan. In addition, the inhabitants of region had to face the human casualties, because the rescue and relief activity by concerned authorities were not started timely. The study find out that the people of Kot Addu predominantly dependent on agriculture and livestock, had to face the disastrous conditions after the flooding had spoiled their standing crops, stored food grains, and livestock. Such losses exacerbated the sufferings of flood affected people manifold but such sufferings seemed to have lessened after the next crops. Nevertheless, the 2010 floods in Pakistan revealed a history and myriad of crisis and uncertainty. The State that was still handling the hazards of the 2005 earthquake now had to face another catastrophe. In Pakistan, issues of governance and administration have never been considered as based on non-delivering of services to citizens. Similarly, the absence of political consensus on building mega dams for water storage resulted into people facing of the worst water-caused destruction ever witnessed in sixty years of the country’s history. The present research stresses the need to look into immorality and inequality as a means to address post-disaster phenomena in affected societies. In addition, the study helps in understanding about how the life of already marginalized and vulnerable people becoming more vulnerable due to catastrophes, mismanagement of hazards and institutional neglect. The Government had not taken any measures to control even the small-scale floods in these areas that occur frequently. The supposed inefficient and morally corrupted political system was another reason behind not taking any efficient measures since the politicians focused more on protecting their own land and people in flood zones than on managing the risk hazards. The flood affectees pointed to the negligence of the Government and the different state departments for not warning people in time, for ineffective evacuation procedures and for the mismanagement in mitigation of flood hazards. Nevertheless, the flood affectees seemed much pleased with the activities of non-governmental international and national aid agencies especially in post flood period.

    The Cursed Leaf: An Anthropology of the Political Economy of Cocaine Production in Southern Colombia2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, Oscar Jansson explores the relations mediating the distribution of surplus value in the sub-capitalist environment of cocaine production in Putumayo, Colombia. Analyzing the groups of actors in the chain of production in the tropical periphery, the study asserts that the transfer of surplus value from the peasant producers at the bottom of the cocaine economy to a significant extent is mediated by violence inflicted by paramilitary groups. This condition, it is demonstrated, enables cocaine traffickers to reduce the costs for obtaining their merchandise by gradually increasing the portion of unpaid labour performed by peasant producers. Faced with the existential and physical hardship of the human condition unfolding on a pioneer frontier under the weight of these relations, small-scale peasant producers struggle to make sense of the forces imposed on them, and, in doing so, create the very ideologies which give cocaine production in Putumayo its actual shape. In the course of the exploration of this system and its protagonists, attention is paid to the relationship between government forces and paramilitaries, the role of the FARC-EP guerrilla with respect to the profitability of drug trafficking, and the local results of the demobilization of the paramilitary umbrella organization AUC. Combining the inquiry into the relations of production with one into the effectiveness of violence and the forms in which the rural population accommodate experiences of repression and exploitation in narrative, social relations and fantasy, the study presents a so far scantily researched economic formation through the lens of an anthropology of political economy.

    It Looks Good on Paper: An Anthropological Exploration of Volunteer Tourism and English Teaching in Northeastern Thailand2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores volunteer tourism in the context of English teachingin Northeastern Thailand, with the specific purpose of exploring whethervolunteer tourism can lead to positive structural positive changes withinthe Thai education system, particularly with regard to improving thequality of education, and reducing inequalities in access to education. Thestudy is based on two months of fieldwork in Nong Khai and Udon Thaniprovinces in Northeastern Thailand, during which interviews andobservations were conducted in two volunteer organizations workingactively with English teaching in the area. One organization was acommercial company while the other was a charity organization, formingthe basis for comparisons between different types of volunteer tourism.The study shows that volunteers working within the charity sector weremore dedicated to their work than vounteers working within thecommercial sector. Furthermore, they were more confident that they weremaking an actual contribution. The motivations of volunteers to partake inthe volunteer programs are explored and discussed in relation to the Thaieducation system and the growing desire for native-speaking and foreignteachers. Locating the stories and experiences of different actors in thelocal volunteer tourism industry within the larger context of the Thaieducation system, the study shows that significant inequalities within theeducation sector, coupled with increasing neoliberal processes ofmarketization and privatization, interact with volunteer organizations tocreate a situation in which young, unskilled volunteers are replacing Thaiteachers in the classrooms. This perpetuates a system in which the rightsof underprivileged school children are significantly downplayed. Thenotion that volunteer tourism leads to a greater cross-cultural understanding and a breakdown of cultural stereotypes is questioned;rather, negative stereotypes can be reinforced if programs are not carefullymanaged by the organizations. The study further argues that the focus onpersonal development and intimacy in volunteer tourism, as well as thelack of professionalization in commercial volunteer programs, can lead toa situation in which the structural inequalities which volunteer tourismshould supposedly address are effectively overshadowed.

    “My Friends Are My Safety Net”: Friendship Amongst Young Adults in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the unique post-war and post-socialist arena several recent studies onformer Yugoslavian countries indicate that young people confronted by challengesof risk and uncertainty are turning away from the national and politicalsphere. Instead, they often seek trust and opportunities in their networks and relationshipson a personal level. This thesis explores the narratives and everydaypractices of young adults in Sarajevo regarding their friendship sociabilities. The aim is to provide an insight on how friendships are characterised, experiencedand related to the specific social and economic organisations that influencesthem.

    Based on fieldwork carried out in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina myproject wants to present how young adults are reflecting and developing aspirationsin the light of their available choices and opportunities in life and how theyare using their friends in order to access various types of benefits and support. It is argued that in specific contexts friendships constitute the main social capitals and orientation points for young people. In order to explore and navigate through the different interests and agendas present in their community when it comes to personal education, career development and housing young peoplenecessarily choose to favour the reliance on their informal solidarities in form offriendships.

    Images of a Forest People: Punan Malinau – Identity, Sociality, and Encapsulation in Borneo2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study of groups of forest foragers and horticulturalists in the Malinau River basin in northeast Borneo. These groups are known to themselves and others as Punan, or more specifically – in order to distinguish them from other groups of Punan (or Penan) living in other parts of Borneo – as Punan Malinau. Scholars have debated whether the Punan are to be regarded as ‘genuine’ rain-forest hunter-gatherers or rather should be considered as groups of ‘runaway farmers’ who have left the fields for a life as professional collectors in the forest.

    The study is based on anthropological fieldwork carried out in Indonesian Borneo from August 1990 through May 1992, with shorter revisits in September–October 1997 and February 2000. The first three chapters offer a detailed overview of the many aspects of the recent hunter-gatherer debates in anthropology and related disciplines. Chapter four provides a description of the ethnic setting, giving brief information on the various ethnic groups of the area. Chapter five gives an ethno-historical sketch of the Malinau area, with particular reference to the last 200 years, during which the history of the Punan Malinau is intimately intertwined with that of the sedentary Merap. Chapter six presents general data on Punan subsistence, settlement patterns, social and political organization and local variation. In Chapter seven the focus is shifted from subsistence to ‘mode of thought’. A number of distinctive features of Punan sociality are explored – such as immediate return, individualism, opportunism, and sharing. Many of these features not only regulate internal relationships, but also serve as a collection of efficacious ‘tools’ by which social and natural resources of all kinds are examined and manipulated, including the management of contacts with surrounding societies. The concept of ‘encapsulation’ therefore becomes an important element in my discussion. Chapter eight, finally, is devoted to the situation at the turn of the millennium. In the course of the 1990s, a growing number of powerful outsiders started interfering with the local situation, including NGOs, and timber and mining companies. This was a time of increasing competition for land and various new sources of income among the people of the Malinau area. A Punan NGO was founded in the context of expanding political awareness, where lobbying for recognition and funding, from governmental or non-governmental organizations, became increasingly important. These developments show that the imaginings of the Punan, as well as their livelihoods, identity, and encapsulation are still a dynamic process.

    How the global North colonize the global South in the 21-century: - the issue of large scale land acquisitions or ”land grabbing”2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay discusses the impacts and effects on the rural population of the large-scale land acquisitions that are taking place in Africa today, with a focus on Tanzania and the activities of the Swedish biofuel company EcoEnergy in the country. The main objective is to explore the implications on the rural population and the environment created by EcoEnergy’s involvement in land acquisition in Tanzania. Large-scale land acquisitions are often said to have a positive impact on a country’s development process. Critical assessments, however, question this opinion and the method chosen for the essay is a case study analysis. For my exploration, it has been crucial to study the documents of the company, its code of conduct and also how the company adheres to Tanzanian laws while carrying out its activities. These documents, which describe expected environmental and social impacts, have been compared to field studies made in Tanzanian villages by institutes to see if EcoEnergy follow their code of conduct statements and adheres to the laws of the country. What has been found when comparing the impact on the environment and the effects on the social life of the local population is that their lives will not be improved, and that promises made by EcoEnergy have not been kept. The conclusion made in this study is that there are no satisfactory communication and information links between the government, the investors and the population. The population does not have any accountability measures towards the investors if the investors’ promises are not kept. The final conclusion is that the development process of Tanzania, as it seems, is thus not gaining on having biofuels investors in the country.

    When privacy and secrecy collapse into one another, bad things can happen2015In: Current Anthropology, ISSN 0011-3204, E-ISSN 1537-5382, Vol. 56, p. S241-S250Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses privacy and secrecy in relation to the sexual lives of adults with significant disabilities. It compares ideologies and practices of privacy in two Scandinavian countries that diverge dramatically when it comes to sexuality and disability. In Sweden, the sexual lives of adults with disabilities are hindered and blocked by the people the welfare state pays to assist them. In Denmark, those same kinds of assistants facilitate sexual lives. A reason for this difference hinges on how "privacy" is conceptualized and practiced. In Denmark, to label something as "private" configures a particular kind of ethical space of engagement. In Sweden, "private" means "secret," "off limits," "beyond the boundary of knowledge or engagement." This collapse of privacy and secrecy into one another has dire consequences for people with disabilities.

    In Search of the State: An Ethnography of Public Service Provision in Urban Niger2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores public health and education provision in Niamey, the capital of Niger, by merging the ethnographic study of public services with an anthropological analysis of the state and of local politics. Based on anthropological fieldwork carried out in a group of neighbourhoods in the periphery of Niamey, the study highlights the political dimensions of public service provision in a local arena where international development interventions and national plans meet local realities and where a wide range of actors and institutions, dis-courses, meanings, and practices are mobilized in the offering of and the regulation of access to public services. It focuses on the political, economic, and socio-cultural aspects of public service provision, too often hidden behind contemporary buzzwords of development such as community participation and decentralization that dominate global debates about education and healthcare in developing countries. The study brings forth the strategies of urban resi-dents in dealing with daily challenges in the consolidation of service provision and in educa-tion and health-seeking trajectories. It shows that access to a satisfactory treatment of illness or a successful school career is premised on the ability to navigate on the medical and educa-tion markets, which are made up of a plurality of providers and of official and unofficial costs and transactions. Further, these public services engage different actors such as commu-nity committees, traditional chiefs, local associations, the municipality and elected municipal councillors, emergent leaders, NGOs, and international development aid. The study demon-strates that despite the uncertainty of state support in health and education provision and a widespread dissatisfaction with these public services, the image of the state as service pro-vider is reproduced on a day by day basis through local efforts at securing public services.

    La matérialité de la reconnaissance : les mobilisations locales pour la fourniture de services publics à Niamey2013In: Politique Africaine, ISSN 0244-7827, E-ISSN 2264-5047, Vol. 4, no 132, p. 27-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article approaches property and citizenship through a focus on the provision of public services and infrastructure in informal urban settlements at the periphery of Niamey, the capital of Niger. In documenting property dynamics and claims to public services, it sets out to explore the intimate connection between place, materiality and the articulation of citizenship and belonging to the city. Public service provision is thus approached as a political arena in which relations between residents and local and national authorities are negotiated on a day-to-day basis. It is argued that in a context of insecure land rights local mobilizations for the provision public services and amenities are a way of staking claims to urban land and to inclusion into the wider urban political community. These mobilizations are also shown to be the source of institutional processes in a situation where the state as manifested in investments, infrastructure and urban plans is otherwise absent.
