    The Shaping of Socio-Economic Systems: The Application of the Theory of Actor-System-Dynamics to Conflict, Social Power, and Institutional Innovation in Economic Life2014 (ed. 2)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Actor-systems dynamics is an innovative, multidisciplinary methodology for investigating and analyzing social struggles over economic resources and the related interplay between economic and socio-political institutions and processes. The authors, sociologists and economists, offer a systemic perspective on contemporary socio-economic issues such as economic crisis, unemployment, inflation, economic democracy and development; in their analyses, they identify several of the key factors that drive people to interact, to initiate change and transformation as well as to resist such change. Major underlying themes in the book are: Conflict over the distribution of economic resources and economic policies and institutions; the structural bases of economic inequality and conflict; the shaping and reshaping of socio-economic institutions, and the contradictions, conflicts and instabilities evoked by such developments; the failure of orthodox economic theories, including Keynesianism, in the face of recurrent economic crises and instabilities; the development and application of an open, dynamic actor-oriented systems theory - grounded in the social sciences - addressing complex socio-economic phenomena in ways diverging substantially from conventional economics. All in all, the papers collected here deal, on the one hand, with social power, conflict, and struggle concerning economic resources and institutions and, on the other hand, the structural and other factors which drive powering initiatives, conflict, and social innovation and transformation. The book is addressed to a broad spectrum of social and managerial scientists concerned with socio-economic issues, institutions, and development.

    Studenters yrkesidentitet: En kvantitativ studie av yrkesidentitetens bestämningsfaktorer2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Under studier på universitetsnivå läggs grunden till studenternas framtida yrkesidentitet. Då universitetsutbildningar i Sverige ser olika ut finns risken att studenterna tillgodogör sig olika mycket yrkesidentitet under sin studietid och på grund av detta är olika väl förberedda för yrkeslivet när de tar examen. Med en kvantitativ ansats syftar denna studie till att undersöka förekomsten av yrkesidentitet hos studenter vid olika typer av akademiska utbildningar i Sverige, för att se vilka bestämningsfaktorer yrkesidentiteten har. Studien behandlar identitetsbegreppet med den symboliska interaktionismen som teoretisk referensram och har med utgångspunkt i denna samlat in data genom enkäter. Analysen genomfördes med multipel regressionsanalys. Två bestämningsfaktorer för yrkesidentiteten har påvisats: typ av utbildning samt engagemang i den framtida yrkesrollen. Studenter som läser breda akademiska utbildningar har starkare yrkesidentitet än studenter som läser yrkesinriktade akademiska utbildningar. Resultaten visar även ett positivt samband mellan engagemang i den framtida yrkesrollen och yrkesidentiteten.

    Abstract

    Title: It is not necessary to be the best, but I don’t want to be average Author: Maja Benca & Emma Ender Tutor: Hedvig Ekerwald

    Purpose: The purpose of this thesis was to identify the subjective experiences of stressors and demands of law students of Uppsala University. Beyond these problems, this thesis was also identifying if there was a balance or conflict between social life and studies from a social psychological perspective. This essay is based on five key questions: How does the subjective experience of stress and demands affect the interviewed law students? How do the interviewed law students handle the stress and demands in their studies and in everyday life? Do the interviewed law students consider there is a balance between social life and studies? How do the law students want to present themselves in front of classmates and teachers? What do the interviewed law students consider to be the main goal in life? Method/Material: The material used in this thesis consists of a total of ten interviews with law students of Uppsala University, five women and five men in the ages of 20 - 32. Main results: The thesis results showed that the stress and demands are experienced individually and differently from person to person depending on ability and how individuals manage their stress. A correlation could be found between the demands and stress in the informants' subjective stories, and how they are being affected. In addition to this, we could also find that there is an imbalance and conflict between social life and studies, as they have to give their studies first priority. How informants present themselves and what their goals are, is also explored in this bachelor thesis.

    Arbetsrelaterad stress och utmattning: En kvantitativ studie om skillnader mellan män och kvinnor2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Stressrelaterade besvär och andra former av psykisk ohälsa orsakade av arbetet, är ett omdiskuterat och väl undersökt samhällsfenomen som ökat de senaste åren i Sverige. Några av de vanligaste stressrelaterade besvären är utmattning och trötthet. Forskning har visat att det existerar könsskillnader i upplevelse av stress och att olika typer av arbeten genererar olika stressnivåer hos individer. Syftet med uppsatsen är att bidra med kunskap om stress och utmattning inom arbetslivet, med särskilt fokus på skillnader mellan män och kvinnor. Krav- och kontrollmodellen lyfts fram för att förklara sambandet mellan krav och kontroll i arbetet, vilket ger en förståelse för hur graden av kontroll de anställda har påverkar effekterna av de psykiska krav som den anställde utsätts för. Även Arlie Hochschilds teori om The Second Shift presenteras, för att beskriva hur män och kvinnor på olika sätt utsätts för krav och kontroll i hemmet. Teorierna lyfts fram för att de kan bidra till en förståelse för eventuella könsskillnader i arbetsrelaterad stress och utmattning. En kvantitativ metod har använts för undersökningen av uppsatsens syfte. Det empiriska materialet som används grundar sig på en enkätstudie från 2005, som är hämtad från International Social Survey Programme. Motiveringen till att detta material används som underlag i denna studie är att det kan bidra till en förståelse för respondenternas upplevelse av stress och utmattning, samt för att kunna jämföra skillnader mellan män och kvinnor i dessa avseenden. Resultatet av undersökningen visade att det i vissa fall existerar skillnader mellan män och kvinnor gällande upplevelse av stress och utmattning. Detta resultat visade sig vid undersökningen av alla respondenter som arbetar och av alla heltidsarbetande respondenter som arbetar med människor. Dock visade resultatet att det inte fanns några signifikanta könsskillnader gällande upplevelse av stress, vid undersökningen av alla heltidsarbetande respondenter och de heltidsarbetande respondenter som inte arbetar med människor. Detta tyder på att vidare forskning bör fortsätta undersöka könsskillnader gällande stress och utmattning, eftersom resultatet kan tolkas som att det i nuläget inte går att dra generaliserande slutsatser i detta avseende.

    Eritrea: The making of a nation 1890-19912000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation examines the century-long process of the making of the Eritrean nation.Developments that culminated in the emergence of the State of Eritrea in 1991 are investigated and elaborated as they are traced from their beginnings in 1890, when Italy declared the creation of its new Colony of Eritrea. The study argues that the act of territorial delineation initiated the creation of Eritrea, followed by various phases of transformation that shaped its formation. This century-long process is divided into three distinct periods, Italian rule, the British Administration and Ethiopian rule.

    This thesis contends that the making of Eritrea was fundamentally the result of the actions of two groups of collective actors - the colonial powers and the nationalist movements. It examines this interplay, beginning with the impact of Italian colonialism on the socio-economic structure of Eritrean society. The nationalist political movement fostered the development of Eritrean national consciousness. The impact of Ethiopian involvement in Eritrea was significant in that the resistance it sparked in Eritreans led to the creation of an Eritrean identity. The National Liberation Movement, in its fight against Ethiopian occupation, and in its intention of bringing social change contributed decisively to the formation of the Eritrean nation. Based on the existing paradigm of theories of nation formation, six analytical dimensions are selected. These are territorial integration, socio-economic integration, politico-legal integration, common history, common culture and the will to live together. A sociological interpretation of the process of formation of the Eritrean nation is elaborated through a chronological examination of developments in Eritrea.

    The central points of the thesis are briefly summarised as follows. Pre-colonial societies with no common history, culture or state-like organisation were integrated by the Italians into what came to be known as the Colony of Eritrea. Territorial integration was achieved under Italian rule, while the process of socio-economic and politico-legal integration continued during the British Administration and Ethiopian-domination. Out of this integration by force and the Eritreans' struggle against colonial rule, a commonly experienced history and shared culture emerged, and the people of Eritrea began to develop a will to live together. The emergent dimensions of nation formation in Eritrea are characterised by territorial, socio-economic and politico-legal integration, common history, common culture and the will to live together. A duality of identity also characterises the Eritrean path to nation formation in the form of both sub-national identity and national identity. Filly, the State of Eritrea emerged from the struggles between the Ethiopian rulers and the NLM, which shaped and reshaped the web of relationships between the mentioned six emergent dimensions of nation characterising Eritrea.

    Äkta kärlek. Heterosexuell samvaro speglat mot diskurser om kärlek, heterosexualitet och kropp2002Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this dissertation is to acquire more knowledge about how young women 15 years of age create meaning about sexual interaction with boys and pornography. This dissertation includes four contributions: The licentiate thesis "Somewhere in between - Young women's accounts of heterosexual practise and pornography" (Berg 1999). Article 1. "The ambiguous conversation" (KvT 2000/3). Article 2. "Hoping love will solve everything." (Being published 2002). The fourth contribution is an overall commentary and conclusion. The dissertations' analysis is based on qualitative interviews with ten girls of whom six girls also participated individually. The analysis results in two overall discursive projects of importance for the way the informants create meaning: the somewhere in-between project and the love-project. The somewhere in-between project tells us of how these 15-year old girls manage to avoid being perceived as a 'slut' at the same time avoiding the epithet of being regarded as 'frigid' (torris). The act of balance the author interprets as being somewhere in-between (lagom). The author discusses the solution of being somewhere in-between in relation to discourses of heterosexuality that are important for determining which kind of sexual actions will be comprehend as risk-free of failing in to disrepute. The somewhere in-between project is also important for how the informants relate to pornography: If they use pornography they risk being called a 'slut' and if they not are interested they risk being seen as 'frigid'. The author interprets the informants' understanding of pornography in the light of the discourse of the body as more or less a sexual urge. This helps the informants to handle the experience of both being sexually aroused and disgusted by pornography. Concerning the love-project the author analyses the informants' accounts in relation to discourses of love as a beneficial, altering and reliable force. The informants' construction of the love-project as an altering force the author interprets as being an overall context of creating meaning about heterosexual practice. Within the love-project the informants expect the young men's sexual behaviour to be impregnated with mutual behaviour but also that the risk of being disrupted is minimal. The author's main analytical point is that the love-project creates an overall context of creating meaning, where the somewhere in-between project and the culturally "split" femininity is built in. Who wants to start a love-project with a 'slut'? Love requires a girl who is somewhere in-between.

    ABSTRACT

    There are several examples of successful companies that are characterised by strong corporate cultures. It is emphasised that a strong and good corporate culture is essential for companies’ reputation and success, as well as the employees’ bonds to the company. Research on the subject corporate culture has been made ​​and presented within an academic as well as a corporate management framework. In much prior research it is seemingly common that corporate culture is presented as a management tool, which can be utilised to govern employees and their actions in a subtle way. The aim of the study is to identify how companies work with creating and maintaining a corporate culture and how employees are approaching it. Clas Ohlson Ltd is a company that actively works with its corporate culture and who has managed to convey it to the employees and implement it in their work. Accordingly, eight interviews have been held with employees at Clas Ohlson from two different stores. In order to obtain the employees' views and perceptions of Clas Ohlson, the thematic open interview was chosen as method of data collection. The research was conducted with an ethnographic approach in which understanding of the actors’ imagination is central. The result of the study demonstrates that Clas Ohlson practice methods of creating and maintaining their corporate culture, and that these methods are linked to the employees' feelings of identification to the company, the company's core values ​​and employee performance. Furthermore, the interviewed employees expressed that they live and learn the corporate spirit hence they proved to be aware of that the corporate culture in part is pre-arranged. It has been shown that corporate culture can be imposed to control and direct actions of employees. In contrast to the approach found in previous research which implies that the controlling and directive function of corporate culture has to be concealed in order to discipline employees, this paper states that the corporate culture can have the same effect when employees are aware of the culture’s engineered distinctiveness.

    "De främlingsfientliga": En jämförande kvantitativ analys av svenska medborgare med främlingsfientliga attityder från 1981-20122014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Med den bruna våg som sköljt in över Sverige och Europa har främlingsfientligheten aldrig känts mer aktuell att undersöka. I Sverige har det främlingsfientliga partiet Sverigedemokraterna fått fäste och en negativ inställning till individer födda i andra länder är en vardag för många. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om samma indikatorer gick att förklara främlingsfientliga attityder i dagens Sverige som i början av 80-talet. Det sätt på vilket detta har undersökts är genom en kvantitativ metod där statistik insamlad av World Values Survey stod som grund för analyserna som gjordes med hjälp av statistikprogrammet SPSS(Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). Sambandsanalyser genomfördes för att se om det gick att finna statistiska signifikanta samband mellan de oberoende variablerna utbildningsnivå, boendeortens storlek, hur stolt individen är till sin nationalitet, ålder, kön och den beroende variabeln främlingsfientlighet.

    Resultatet som gick att finna i analyserna var att det på 80-talet endast var statistiskt signifikant samband mellan ålder och främlingsfientlighet där äldre tenderade att vara mer främlingsfientliga. I övrigt var främlingsfientligheten spridd mellan olika utbildningsnivåer, olika storlekar på boendeorten samt kön och stolthet över sin nationalitet. När det kom till den senare studien gick att finna att sambanden såg annorlunda ut mot 80-talet. I den studien var alla samband statistiskt signifikanta. Sambandet mellan ålder och främlingsfientlighet hade ändrat riktning där alltså yngre individer tenderade att vara mer främlingsfientliga. Utöver det gick att påvisa att främlingsfientligheten var som starkast bland individer som var stolta över sin nationalitet, bodde på mindre orter, med en lägre utbildningsnivå samt med det manliga könet.

    Degrees of intersectionality: Male rap artists in Sweden negotiating class, race and gender2013In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 5, p. 189-211Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    “Intersectionality” has become a highly influential concept in gender research over the last 25 years. Debates have focused on differences and power asymmetries between women, in terms of race but also addressing class, age, sexuality, ability and nation. However, intersectional paradigms have been used to a much lesser extent in gender studies on men. This article seeks to contribute to an emerging discussion about intersectionality and masculinity by analyzing rap lyrics in Swe-dish songs. The data consists of a broad sample of rap lyrics by male artists 1991-2011, which is analyzed through poststructuralist discourse analysis and queer phenomenology. The analysis shows how classed discourses can be described in terms of orientation and flow, how racialization is articulated in terms of place, and the role of normative notions of gender and sexuality in anti-racist discourses. It is argued that this interconnectedness – class being related to race, which in turn is profoundly gendered – is neither well captured by the prevailing notion of “masculinities” in gender studies on men, nor by the “constitution” vs. “addition” dichotomy in intersectionality debates. Instead, it is suggested that degrees of in-tersectionality might be a more fruitful way of theorizing intersectionality in rela-tion to men.

    Hip hop feminism in Sweden: Intersectionality, feminist critique and female masculinity2014In: The European Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 1350-5068, E-ISSN 1461-7420, Vol. 21, no 3, p. 233-250Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hip hop has grown into a worldwide genre in recent decades, often being associated with issues of race and class. However, as research on ‘hip hop feminism’ in the US context demonstrates, the categories of gender and sexuality are no less fundamental. In the growing body of international hip hop research, though, questions about gender have been relatively absent, and relatively little is known about how gender norms are negotiated and challenged in hip hop in Europe. This article seeks to contribute to filling this gap in the literature by exploring how women negotiate the gender norms of hip hop in the case of Sweden. To this end, rap lyrics by 12 female rap artists are analysed through poststructuralist discourse analysis. The analysis focuses on intersectionality, feminism within and beyond hip hop, as well as the possibilities and limitations of female masculinity. It is shown how the masculine norms of the genre are simultaneously resisted and resignified as many female rappers incorporate some elements commonly associated with masculinity but mobilize them in their challenging of masculine norms. In this way, complying with the genre interestingly produces a hard and explicit feminism in which ‘all sexist pigs will be slaughtered’.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite the recent consolidation of “critical studies on men” or “masculinity studies”, critics have pointed to a theoretical deficit. Berggren discusses how critical studies on men could benefit from engaging with contemporary post-structuralist feminist theory and feminist phenomenological accounts of subjectivity. His argument proceeds through a reading of John Stoltenberg as a post-structuralist feminist and of Victor Seidler as a feminist phenomenologist. He suggests that the study of masculinity can benefit from both traditions. Drawing in particular on Sara Ahmed’s innovative combination of poststructuralism and phenomenology, Berggren suggests an understanding of masculinity as “sticky”.

    'No homo': Straight inoculations and the queering of masculinity in Swedish hip hop2012In: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 50-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Performing heterosexuality is often a central component in the making ofmasculinity. Yet queer theory with its critical focus on heterosexuality has not hadthe same impact on masculinity studies as on other areas of gender studies. Thisarticle seeks to contribute to the emerging use of queer theory within criticalstudies on men and masculinities by examining the production and negotiation ofmale heterosexuality in Swedish hip hop. This is done through a discourse analysisof a broad sample of Swedish rap lyrics from 1991 to 2011. Analyzing the use ofmetaphors, rhetorical negotiations and triangles of desire, it is argued that in spiteof a dominant heteronormative discourse, signs of male homosocial desire abound.The author suggests that the concept of straight inoculations can be useful inunderstanding attempts to maintain heterosexuality in an ambiguous terrain.

    Reading Rap: Feminist Interventions in Men and Masculinity Research2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis explores how masculinity is constructed and negotiated in relation to race, class and sexuality in hip hop in Sweden. Theoretically, the study contributes to the increasing use of contemporary feminist theory in men and masculinity research. In so doing, it brings into dialogue poststructuralist feminism, feminist phenomenology, intersectionality and queer theory. These theoretical perspectives are put to use in a discourse analysis of rap lyrics by 38 rap artists in Sweden from the period 1991-2011. The thesis is based on the following four articles:

    Sticky masculinity: Post-structuralism, phenomenology and subjectivity in critical studies on men explores how poststructuralist feminism and feminist phenomenology can advance the understanding of subjectivity within men and masculinity research. Drawing on Sara Ahmed, and offering re-readings of John Stoltenberg and Victor Seidler, the article develops the notion of “sticky masculinity”.

    Degrees of intersectionality: Male rap artists in Sweden negotiating class, race and gender analyzes how class, race, gender, and to some extent sexuality, intersect in rap lyrics by male artists. It shows how critiques of class and race inequalities in these lyrics intersect with normative notions of gender and sexuality. Drawing on this empirical analysis, the article suggests that the notion of “degrees of intersectionality” can be helpful in thinking about masculinity from an intersectional perspective.

    ‘No homo’: Straight inoculations and the queering of masculinity in Swedish hip hop explores the boundary work performed by male artists regarding sexuality categories. In particular, it analyzes how heterosexuality is sustained, given the affection expressed among male peers. To this end, the article develops the notion of “straight inoculations” to account for the rhetorical means by which heterosexual identities are sustained in a contested terrain.

    Hip hop feminism in Sweden: Intersectionality, feminist critique and female masculinity investigates lyrics by female artists in the male-dominated hip hop genre. The analysis shows how critique of gender inequality is a central theme in these lyrics, ranging from the hip hop scene to politics and men’s violence against women. The article also analyzes how female rappers both critique and perform masculinity.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite the consolidation of "critical studies on men" or "masculinity studies" in recent years, critics have pointed to a kind of feminist theory deficit due to the relative lack of engagement with contemporary developments of feminist theory. By focusing on poststructuralist feminist and feminist phenomenological accounts of subjectivity, this article seeks to contribute to the emerging body of work that brings such theories into critical studies on men. I argue that making use of these perspectives is not only a matter of replacing dominant theories, but rather offers possibilities for creative re-reading of earlier work on masculinity, which may not have been sufficiently appreciated from the viewpoint of dominant structural perspectives. My argument proceeds through a reading of John Stoltenberg as a poststructuralist feminist, and a reading of Victor Seidler as a feminist phenomenologist. I suggest that the study of masculinity can benefit from both traditions, and as an example I consider Jonathan Salisbury’s and David Jackson’s work on "boys’ work." Drawing in particular on Sara Ahmed’s innovative combination of poststructuralism and phenomenology, I suggest an understanding of masculinity as "sticky."
