    Former som formar: Musik, kulturarv, öar. Festskrift till Owe Ronström2019Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Former som formar har tillkommit för att uppmärksamma Owe Ronströms forskargärning. Owe har rört sig över många fält. Doktorsavhandlingens musiketnologiska ansatser och performansinriktade perspektiv utgör numera allmängods i etnologiska studier av musik och ljud. Ett tidigt forskningssammanhang fick han även i forskargruppen kring ålder och åldrande, som betytt mycket för honom. När han tillsammans med andra på dåvarande Högskolan på Gotland etablerade kulturarvspolitik på den etnologiska agendan, var det delvis utifrån de insikter han fått från musiken: att kulturarv, liksom musik, gör något med oss människor. Men vad gör det med oss, hur görs det och vilka konsekvenser får det? Samma kritiska granskning och problematisering har Owe sedermera underkastat våra föreställningar om öar och öighet, och visat på kulturella processer med stor verkanskraft.

    Många kolleger och studenter deltar nu med bidrag till hans festskrift, som vi valt att kalla Former som formar, en anspelning på den grundtes om folklorens former som både Owe och hans kollega och vän Ulf Palmenfelt framhållit i olika sammanhang. Artiklarna rör sig från uttryck för judisk folkmusikrevival i Spelman på taket till Vømmøl Spellmanslags skapande av ett fiktivt Norge i sin musik; från de vikingatida Borrehögarnas sen-tida kulturhistoria till de isländska protesterna efter finanskraschen 2008; från gotländska sommarstugor till östgötska slott; från randområdenas bidrag till människans utveckling till frågor om huruvida ett hållbart liv överhuvudtaget är möjligt. Den gemensamma nämnaren utgörs av hur vårt sätt att gestalta dessa frågor formas av folklorens former, samtidigt som dessa former själva har en historia och har formats av den.

    Between The Bank, The House And The PAH: A View Of Quotidian Life In Crisis Through The Struggle Of Those Affected In Bonavista (Barcelona)2019In: Arbor, ISSN 0210-1963, E-ISSN 1988-303X, Vol. 195, no 793, article id a515Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Great Recession of 2008 was a singular event in the recent history of Spain. The burst of the real-estate bubble and the massive destruction of jobs it provoked revealed a deep crisis in Spanish capitalism. In Bonavista, unemployment and the resulting inability of working people to pay their mortgages exerted intense pressure on the financial sector to reshape the quotidian life of those affected, resulting in: the subordination of social relations, the labour required to maintain these and their reproduction to the logic of wealth expropriation. In this context, the Plataforma de Afectados por la Hipoteca (Platform for People Affected by Mortgages, PAH) arises as a refuge, where afflicted persons reclaim the primacy of their life projects against the attempted hegemony of the banks.

    Rising up against the subordination of life in Barcelonès: an ethnography of the struggle of the afectadas for a future without debt chains2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The collapse of the Spanish real-estate market in 2007-8, and the colossal destruction of jobs it provoked, put an abrupt end to a decade-long model of growth, which was based on the construction and tourism industries as its primary motors as well as on the massive indebtedness of the labouring masses. In the severe economic downturn that ensued, a social conflict appeared: on the one side, the many indebted people forming the movement of the Plataforma de Afectados por la Hipoteca (PAH) and, on the other side, the financial industry. This study offers an ethnographic account of the aforementioned conflict as it unfolds in the precarious reality of Barcelona and Santa Coloma de Gramenet, with a particular emphasis on the experience and struggle of the affected persons. The argument advanced is that the main predicament of the debt conflict is the subordination of life processes to the imperatives of financial accumulation; a situation enabled by a specific constellation of forces, involving the successive governments of Spain, the financial elite, the police, and the courts.

    Making the Megaproject: Water Infrastructure and Hydrocracy at the Public-Private Interface in Peru2019In: Water Alternatives, ISSN 1965-0175, E-ISSN 1965-0175, Vol. 12, no 3, p. 503-520Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To meet an increasing industrial and urban demand for water in a context of water scarcity in Peru, the state has invested heavily in hydraulic megaprojects to ensure water supply to citizens and corporations. The Majes Siguas Special Project (PEMS) in the Arequipa Region is an example of such a water infrastructure project. While the first stage of PEMS, built in the 1980s, was financed and run by the Peruvian government, the second stage that is currently underway is being co-financed and built by a private transnational consortium that will run the infrastructure for 20 years. This can be understood as a process of temporary commodification of the water infrastructure and places the hydraulic megaproject at the heart of tensions between seeing water infrastructure as public utility and seeing it as private provision. This article asks how this tension between public and private is played out in practice within the hydraulic bureaucracy and examines ethnographically how the Majes Siguas Special Project is made over time by way of the everyday practices of experts. The study finds that these experts anticipate the potential political effects of temporary commodification of water infrastructures to be both a risk and a distinct possibility. The article argues that building, maintaining and managing hydraulic megaprojects are far from straightforward processes, but should instead be understood as open-ended experimental reconfigurations that the hydrocracy deals with through contingent practices of knowledge.

    Risk, remembering and reasoning: The public afterlife of the 2014 wildfire in Sweden2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the summer of 2014 occurred the worst wild fire in modern times in Sweden; a disaster that sparked many reactions in affected areas and in society at large. Mass media reported intensively about the emergency and the area was subject to a lot of “disaster tourism,” both during the emergency and in the following months. Numerous public investigations were commissioned to document and analyse the disaster event and its public management. In addition, many scientific research projects were launched to study the psychological, social and ecological effects of the forest fire. This article is the result of one of these research projects, but while many of them focus on the actual disaster management or the immediate impact, our research aims at understanding the long-term effects of the wildfire in the affected communities. This article analyses how local stakeholders have managed what can be called the disaster afterlife or the post-disaster, referring to the process of community recovery and reconstruction, or, to use a more recent concept, resilience. Our focus is on how personal memories and moral understandings forge the ways in which public officials, who are set to manage risk, experience this process. We apply an inductive approach to analyse our empirical material collected by semi-structured interviews in 2016.

    Memoryscape: Designing with Senior Citizens as Memory Meditation2013In: Human Factors in Computing and Informatics, Berlin Heidelberg: Springer, 2013, p. 601-608Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Supporting senior citizens with tools to recollect past experiences about everyday life is gaining ground within HCI research. In this paper, we focus on how seniors reminiscing can be a resource for designers to uncover the situated aspects. In particular, we argue that an analytical focus on seniors’ memories is a fruitful stance for tracing how design practice situates issues of senior wellbeing. We employ the case of designing with senior citizens to design ICT for supporting adherence to physical therapy at home and discuss two retrospective examples. These examples highlight how seniors’ physical wellbeing was situated in, memories of a musically rich and mobile life, and memories of youthful male body. Through retrospection, we offer the preliminary notion of memoryscape as a conceptual term for orienting how a design process can mediate seniors’ memories as a way of accounting for situated elderliness in design.
