    No fundamental change for northern Uganda2005Ingår i: The Daily Monitor: Uganda's Independent Daily, Kampala, nr 9 SeptArtikel i tidskrift (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Article/opinion, The Daily Monitor, 9 Sept 2005, and republished in the same paper on 8 May 2006, as: "Why amnesty won't end LRA insurgency":

    The situation in northern Uganda has been described as one of the worst humanitarian crises of today. We need to acknowledge that the crisis is not only humanitarian. It is more profoundly, a political crisis...

    No-peace-no-war in Uganda2005Ingår i: News from The Nordic Africa Institute, ISSN 1403-8366, nr 1, s. 9-12Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Northern Uganda has been afflicted by war since 1986. The situation in the region has been described by a high-rank UN representative as one of the worst humanitarian crises of today. Yet, recently there have been developments which have encouraged some commentators to speak about a ‘post-war’ situation. In this brief commentary, I warn against declaring a post-war situation too soon.

    O Anthropology, Where Art Thou?: An auto-ethnography of proposals2016Ingår i: The anthropologist as writer: Genres and contexts in the 21st century / [ed] Helena Wulff, New York, Oxford: Berghahn Books, 2016, s. 46-59Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I revisit the so-called Malinowskian legacy in the light of my efforts to raise funds for my own anthropological endeavors. Today’s almost habitual dismissal of this legacy as parochial risks missing the fact that the anthropology of Bronislaw Malinowski’s days was not simply a colonialist enterprise working under faulty premises. Even if epistemologically ethnocentric, Malinowski and those following his lead paved the way for an engaged, open-minded, reflexive, and indeed global anthropology. I will sketch some possibilities and potentials for ethnographic writing, but more, forces that tend to corrode the anthropological mind, a kind of control and restriction of the anthropological and academic freedom that I guess Malinowski never had to deal with in his life. As one of those ancestors who still interfere with our daily anthropological lives, I suspect him to be somehow troubled with today’s predicament.

    Peace talks with Kony are worth everything2006Ingår i: The Sunday Monitor: Uganda's Independent Daily, Kampala, nr 9 JulyArtikel i tidskrift (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    The Sunday Monitor, Kampala, opinion/analysis, 9 July 2006:

    Neither culturally informed practices of reconciliation nor international retributive justice can replace political efforts at peacemaking, as has been the development in Uganda. Perhaps it is even too early to talk about reconciliation or justice. Instead, to start with, peace talks are urgently needed.

    Postcoloniality and the postcolony: Theories of the global and the local1997Övrigt (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays it is common among anthropologists to integrate history and colonialism in ethnographic writing. This can present us with a new, fruitful understanding regarding ethnicity and identity formation. However, this approach is not unchained from problems or implications. To highlight this ambiguity, the first section of the paper discusses colonial processes in relation to ethnicity and the concepts of primordialism and constructionalism. Ethnographic examples are taken from Africa as well as from India. Further, in the context of some eurocentric imaginations the second section discusses aspects of modernity and tradition, of global processes and local responses. Finally, with examples from Uganda the third section discusses what is sometimes described as the postcolonial situation par excellence in Africa: the colonial inheritance and the alienation of the state from the actual society.

    Reconciliation grown bitter?: War, retribution, and ritual action in northern Uganda2010Ingår i: Localizing Transitional Justice: Interventions and Priorities after Mass Violence / [ed] Rosalind Shaw and Lars Waldorf, with Pierre Hazan, Stanford: Stanford University Press , 2010, s. 135-156Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In the effort to critically assess fixed, hard-line wartime arguments, my chapter proceeds in three stages. I begin with a sketch of some measures taken by the Ugandan government to end the war in northern Uganda. I then look at the international involvement from two standpoints, the war on terror and the International Criminal Court's effort to bring Lord's Resistance Army rebel leaders to dock. Second, I proceed to discuss two forms of ritualized reconciliation among the Acholi living in the immediate war zone, the debated mato oput (“to drink the bitter root”) and the not-so-well-known gomo tong (“to bend the spears”) rituals. Finally, in bringing these different layers together in a discussion on ritual action, I show that retributive justice, amnesty laws, and reconciliation are sources of hope, but more, of contest and confusion, and of feelings of inequality, even bitterness.

    Survival in war-torn Uganda2006Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 22, nr 2, s. 12-15Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article describes some of the slippery but very real non-formal aspects of economic life and war in Acholiland, northern Uganda, and attempt, in the words of anthropologist Carolyn Nordstrom, ‘an ethnography of the shadows’ – that is, a description of those frontier realities of power, non-formal economic exchanges and everyday survival. Today’s war in northern Uganda, although fought locally, is international and even global in character. Worldwide flows of imagery, weaponry and humanitarian aid become entangled with local socio-political realities. In narrating a young man’s story of survival, the article shows how internally displaced people in the war zone understand and explain the fact that the international community has become increasingly and inescapably entangled with the politics and practices of this war.

    Today he is no more: Magic, intervention, and global war in Uganda2013Ingår i: Virtual war and magical death: Technologies and imaginaries for terror and killing / [ed] Neil L. Whitehead and Sverker Finnström, Durham: Duke University Press , 2013Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I revisit a few months of intensive fieldwork conducted in late 2005. This fieldwork spell was part of a much longer engagement with war-torn Acholiland in northern Uganda starting in 1997 and still ongoing. But back in 2005, I could follow closely the unfolding of local news as the International Criminal Court (ICC) unsealed its arrest warrants for the leaders of the globally infamous Lord’s Resistance Army/Movement (LRA). From this horizon, I discuss the intersection of media reporting, international interventions, and violent insurgency/counterinsurgency warfare in Uganda and beyond. In sketching an ethnography that trails violent death, I will not just focus on any instrumental goal of violent acts but more on what such acts do. I thus sketch how perpetrators, victims, and witnesses of violence alike “are directed toward the ever-shifting horizons of their existence” (Kapferer), and also how such existential horizons may implode in vital conjunctures that are not only highly violent but also magical.

    Abstract [sv]

    I detta kapitel vill jag beskriva varför den politiska utvecklingen i Uganda, trots löften om motsatsen, tycks göra det omöjligt för ett fredligt skifte av det politiska ledarskapet. Hur har det politiska landskapet kommit att utvecklas i Uganda? Mer än tjugo år efter det installationstal till nationen i vilket gerillaledaren Yoweri Museveni definierade problemet med Ugandas ledarskap, biter han sig fast vid makten. Militären har fått permanent representation i landets parlament, och Museveni har genom åren stigit i militär grad till general samtidigt som han är landets överbefälhavare. Den revolution som han utlovade, med maktskiften genom demokratiska val i stället för statskupper och inbördeskrig, tycks ha uteblivit.

    War stories and troubled peace: Revisiting some secrets of northern Uganda2015Ingår i: Current Anthropology, ISSN 0011-3204, E-ISSN 1537-5382, Vol. 56, nr S12, s. S222-S230Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Many aspects of war are deliberately kept secret, but some are so mundane that they simply are not reflected upon. In the face of the brutal mass violence of most wars today, these mundane secrets are not spectacular enough to capture media attention or the observers’ imaginations. They are, in a sense, the unmarked secrets of everyday war. In this article, I address such unmarked secrets of war. Focusing on war-torn northern Uganda, I follow two parallel threads. One is the anthropology of life histories, or my journey into anthropology in conjunction with the stories of a few Ugandan key informants. The second thread exposes the conditions that influence a researcher’s tendency to craft and edit data and experience. In acknowledging the entanglements of the two threads, I focus on storytelling and listening in situations that initially may remain unmarked – and thus silent and even secret – to the outside participant observer. In addition, rather than presenting any straightforward story of the war in northern Uganda, I extend a conversation on methodology.

    Wars of the past and war in the present: The Lord’s Resistance Movement/Army in Uganda2006Ingår i: Africa, ISSN 0001-9720, E-ISSN 1750-0184, Vol. 76, nr 2, s. 200-220Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    War has ravaged Acholiland in northern Uganda since 1986. The Ugandan army is fighting the Lord's ResistanceMovement/Army (LRM/A) rebels. Based on anthropological fieldwork, the article aims at exemplifying the ways in which non-combatant people's experiences of war and violence are domesticated in cosmological terms as strategies of coping, and it relates tales of wars in the past to experiences of violent death and war in the present. There has been a politicized debate in Uganda over whether or not the LRM/A rebels have the elders' ceremonial warfare blessing. In sketching this debate, the article interprets the possible warfare blessing - which some informants interpreted as having turned into a curse on Acholiland - as a critical event that benefits from further deliberation, regardless of its existence or non-existence. It is argued that no warfare blessing can be regarded as the mere utterance of words. Rather, a blessing is performed within the framework of the local moral world. It is finally argued that the issue of the warfare blessing is a lived consequence of the conflict, but, nevertheless, cannot be used as an explanatory model for the cause of the conflict.

    Realists in Juba hold hope for northern peace2006Ingår i: The Daily Monitor, nr 21 SeptArtikel i tidskrift (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Newspaper op-ed 21 Sept 2006, also published by Sudan Tribune (http://www.sudantribune.com/spip.php?article17685):

    The International Crisis Group points out that the Juba talks need international backing and support. “Riek [Machar] has done an impressive job,” they write, “but he cannot realistically navigate the waters ahead without more help from both his own government and the international community.” It is obvious that the talks need better international support. But we have some concerns with such an involvement. Several past efforts to bring peace to northern Uganda have been marred by the unrealistic—rather than realistic—involvement of the international community.

    Abstract [en]

    In defining war, this article explores the origin and historical development of armed aggression from the earliest human societies to the present. The fact that war is a relatively recent invention in the span of human existence, arising with complex societies, suggests war is neither a biological imperative nor integral to the human condition. The many forms war takes, from ethnic conflict through conventional militaries to guerrilla warfare are considered in order to understand the nature and culture of war. The twentieth century has been the bloodiest in history, and this piece examines the relationships between violence, society, and the exercise of power that help explain this. The changing philosophies and practices of war over time and society show war to be a complex constellation of economic, cultural, and existential, as well as political factors. The various theoretical approaches to war, from those characterizing premodern societies and the rise of the modern state to the present are discussed. In concluding, the future of war, and the new directions theory might take in best understanding war in the aftermath of the 2001 September 11 attacks, are considered.

    Abstract [en]

    This book was inspired by a number of considerations: the limits of ethnographic participation in war zones, the way in which the imaginary becomes significant in creating meaning in the chaotic context of war zones, and how a space of virtual conflict and war emerges from these conjunctions. Such a virtual space is not separate from the physical battlefield, although for most Euro-Americans the battles are something “out there” in the presumably dangerous spaces of Africa, Middle East, or south of the Mexico–United States border. However, we contend in the volume that the actual killings on the battlefields, wherever they happen to be located, are intimately linked to an emerging virtual space created by news and cinematic and gaming media as well as the mediating and mapping technologies of contemporary military violence—such as airborne attack drones, satellite surveillance from space, stealth airplanes and helicopters, night-vision equipment, and the associated use of politically covert assassination operations...

    Virtual war and magical death: Technologies and imaginaries for terror and killing2013Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Virtual War and Magical Death is a provocative examination of the relations between anthropology and contemporary global war. Several arguments unite the collected essays, which are based on ethnographic research in varied locations, including Guatemala, Uganda, and Tanzania, as well as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and the United States. Foremost is the contention that modern high-tech warfare—as it is practiced and represented by the military, the media, and civilians—is analogous to rituals of magic and sorcery. Technologies of "virtual warfare," such as high-altitude bombing, remote drone attacks, night-vision goggles, and even music videoes and computer games that simulate battle, reproduce the imaginative worlds and subjective experiences of witchcraft, magic, and assault sorcery long studied by cultural anthropologists.

     

    Another significant focus of the collection is the U.S. military's exploitation of ethnographic research, particularly through its controversial Human Terrain Systems (HTS) Program, which embeds anthropologists as cultural experts in military units. Several pieces address the ethical dilemmas that HTS and other counterinsurgency projects pose for anthropologists. Other essays reveal the relatively small scale of those programs in relation to the military's broader use of, and ambitions for, social scientific data.

    A Sense of Place: Outdoor Pursuits and Cabin Fever. A Nordic Haven for Gender Equality2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to examine how Swedish ‘sommarstuga’ (Summer Cottage) or ‘cabins’ contributes to the production of gender equal values. This ethnographic work is based on the central case study of the members from Uppsala Extremsportförening, (UppX) and their interactions during two cabin trips; one to a surf cabin in Ericeira Portugal and the other a family cabin in Ängskärs, Sweden. The fieldwork conducted was implemented in a multi-sited ethnographic approach allowing for a broader perspective of possible fieldsites and the techniques of ‘Following The People’ and ‘Carnal Sociology’. Consequently, this led to unique experiences where the ‘sense of place’ of Swedish cabin traditions and values could be seen being practiced in Portugal. While, aiming to address the participants of this fieldwork thoughts and views on myths and misconceptions of Sweden’s image as a utopia or role model for egalitarian values. This thesis highlights that cabins and their surrounding spaces facilitate more than just sporting pursuits. They are a microcosm of interactions, a social space for family and friends, for play and gender politics; a world within a world. Concluding that, Swedish cabins are a ‘heterotopia’ or haven that facilitates gender equal interactions, evidencing this through case studies of gender equal participation in various sporting activities while staying in two very different cabins.

    Translating Green IT: The case of the Swedish Green IT Audit2013Ingår i: ICT4S 2013: Proceedings of the First International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies for Sustainability, ETH Zurich, February 14-16, 2013 / [ed] Hilty, Lorenz M., Aebischer, Bernard, Andersson, Göran and Lohmann, Wolfgang, 2013, s. 208-216Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we use translation theory from organization studies [1] to discuss the Green IT Audit, which is a consultancy model developed in Sweden, following the recent industry shock-wave of Green IT [2]. Translation theory is based on social constructionism [3], which inter alia posits that concepts, such as Green IT, do not have intrinsic meanings, but that meaning is created in social interaction. The theory is therefore part of an interpretive turn in organization studies, where effort is dedicated not to increasing the efficiency or effectiveness of organizations (the main concern of more functionalist studies), but to see how people that constitute them, make sense and interpret their work.

    "The City is Yours": Desegregation and Sharing Space in Post-Conflict Belfast2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how borders are socially produced and deconstructed in “post-conflict” North Belfast. Twenty years after the signing of the historic Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland, a peace model lauded for the resolution of conflicts worldwide, Belfast today remains a highly divided city with the existence of numerous segregation barriers, among them so-called peace walls, physically separating Protestant from Catholic neighbourhoods. Indicating a failure to achieve social accommodation, this thesis seeks to examine how people in North Belfast understand, negotiate, and experience space and borders around them. In particular, it illuminates the processes and agents involved in modifying and transforming borders, as well as the resistance engendered in doing so amidst considerable intra-community debate and competition over place identities and their attendant narratives. Placed firmly within the anthropological study of borders and space, it shows how borders and their regimes are socially constructed and should be understood as practices and imaginations rather than simply as inert objects which render individuals as passive “victims” of their urban environs. It furthermore seeks to challenge prevailing cognitive and analytical constructs of borders and border crossing. Based on ten weeks of fieldwork in Belfast by the author, this study employs extensive participant observation and semi-structured interviews.

    Att vara ung kvinna och feminist: En uppsats om vad det innebär för unga kvinnor i Uppsala att identifiera sig som feminist2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att vara feminist har olika innebörd beroende på vilken kvinna man tillfrågar. Hela ordet feminism har olika innebörd för olika kvinnor. Denna uppsats handlar om hur feminismen tar sig uttryck i fem unga kvinnors liv, vad innebörden av att vara feminist är för dem och hur de lever som feminister, hur identifikationen som feminist påverkar deras vardag och på sätt och vis är deras vardag. Vad det är att vara feminist utifrån ett politiskt perspektiv, men även ett socialt och personligt perspektiv om vad det innebär för dessa kvinnor personligen. Att vara feminist är för dessa kvinnor en del av deras identitet och är därför en stor del av deras varande. Denna uppsats är en diskussion om hur man kan prata om feminism i termer av olika feminismer och hur feminismen har kommit att bli en individuell tolkning allt mer sen allt fler unga kvinnor har börjat identifiera sig som feminister. Denna uppsats tar även upp ämnet om hur det finns olika habitus med fokus på kön i samhället, dels en diskus- sion om hur det finns ett feministiskt habitus, men också ett patriarkalt habitus i samhället som feminister arbetar för att bekämpa.

    New healthcare system regulations, same problems: A Study on the Effects of Unattainable Healthcare and a Non-Government Funded Organization in New York City2016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout the existence of the United States there have been multiple ways to seek healthcare insurance, and healthcare services and treatment. As the country developed a system in which healthcare was distributed was created. As such, this system has created societal divisions and has caused certain people to be excluded from gaining access to healthcare insurance and treatment. From these divisions, certain stigmas and stereotypes have been created about the type of person that does not have access to healthcare. With certain historical reforms in the U.S. healthcare system being currently implemented, the healthcare system is to change dramatically. However, certain people are still being excluded from gaining access to healthcare insurance and healthcare services.

    The following thesis, based on research which was conducted from April to July 2014 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City, explores the manner in which recent developments and changes within the healthcare system of the United States inhibits the city’s residents from obtaining basic health care. By focusing on medical encounters, this thesis focuses on how agencies of power retain control of the body, and those that seek access to healthcare. This thesis also explores the opinion of the uninsured patients by those who volunteer at The Coalition of Concerned Medical Professionals, which is an organization that offers free healthcare services while acting as political advocates.

    Self-care and injury prevention in the Swedish welfare society: An anthropological study on how physical activity and cardio exercise are used to self-care both physically and mentally2017Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The broader aim of this essay is twofold: Firstly, I study what motivate people to engage in physical activities, particularly walking or running. Secondly, I contextualize the experiences and understanding in relation to governmentality and technology. I pay particular attention to perceived benefits of physical activities and cardio exercises, both physical and mental benefits, which include feelings, motivations and experiences.

    The essay focuses on the perceived benefits of physical activities, which is deeply tied to health and self-governing. Therefore, this essay examines how physical activities is viewed as good for people’s health, how it is motivated by pain and illness, monitored by self-govern and technology, and desired for its ability to maintain capability and freedom.

    In order to analyze perceived benefits of physical activities, this study draws from several theoretical orientations of governmentality, concept of illness, embodiment, place, mobility and freedom. I have used medical anthropology, public health studies as well as historical studies of sport and exercises to contextualize physical activities. As method I have drawn mostly from interviews with the participants in the study and some observations of the environment. Besides that, I have used my own senses to experiences walking in different areas. Furthermore, I have analyzed written material from the public health agency and the ministry of health and social affairs in Sweden, health organizations and newspapers.

    Resisting abandonment: An ethnography of oil workers' resistance to political violence and capital accumulation in rural Colombia2016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Colombia is the worst country to be a trade unionist in the world. Approximately 3,000 workers have been assassinated in the last 30 years, the state, paramilitary organizations and some multinationals being responsible for most of the murders. This fact highlights the importance of researching the mechanisms of mass violence against trade unionists including the mechanisms on part of the trade unionists that keep trade unionism alive. Because of the importance of studying power and resistance as part of social change, this thesis presents an ethnography of political violence against the labourers and the trade unionists that work for Pacific Rubiales Energy in the department of Meta, with focus on how those trade unionists resist such violence with an open resistance to both political violence and coercive capital accumulation. I state that the trade unionists, by adapting their list of demands to the locals' social and environmental needs, overstep corporatist trade unionism allowing them to break the social and physical death imposed by the state, the mafias and the multinational. I argue that the trade unionists' open resistance not only allows them to continue their social struggle and to challenge the violence exerted against them, but permits them to modernize a country that sustains a semi-feudal structure beneficial for the multinationals, the mafia barons and the economic and political elites by challenging their corrupt and murderous relations.
