    Bad Guys, Good Life: An Ethnography of Morality and Change in Kisekka Market (Kampala, Uganda)2018Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on ethnographic data gathered over a period of almost three years, this dissertation scrutinizes the everyday lives of informal workers selling auto parts in Kisekka Market, central Kampala. Its ambition is to understand how the workers navigated a highly moralized environment in today’s Uganda, where the supposed moral deterioration of society is passionately discussed in public and in private.

    Analytically the dissertation focuses on three “moral landscapes,” or moral discourses of different geographical scales, that intersected in the workers’ lives: first, the Ugandan nation or the country; second, the Buganda kingdom with its cultural institutions to which the majority of the workers professed allegiance; and third, the capital city Kampala. Materializing in Kisekka Market, each landscape posed moral demands that the workers navigated daily as they struggled to balance norms with lived practices.

    The workers were perceived by external observers as morally ambiguous for their supposed instrumentality in riots and violent crimes in Kampala. Their notoriousness increased for the fact that they were men, often uneducated, and therefore, in public discourse, potentially threatening. Consequently, they were referred to as bayaaye, translated as hooligans or bad guys, and this label defined their relations with customers from all parts of Kampala and Uganda.

    In exploring the implications of the three moral landscapes, particular attention is paid to the in-between. Rather than focusing on mediatized events like riots and crimes, the dissertation investigates and locates the workers’ agency in the mundane processes of care and getting by and the tentative paths to a good life that unfolded daily in Kisekka Market, regardless of larger political tensions in Kampala and beyond. The city’s development plan to replace Kisekka Market with a fancy shopping mall rendered the workers’ situation increasingly exposed and their lives increasingly vulnerable. In the workers’ quest for some degree of control and self-worth, the label of bayaaye refracted into its multiple dimensions – proudly appropriated or painfully rejected by the workers themselves – attesting  to the complexities of everyday ethics, in Kampala as elsewhere. Consequently, the ethnography of this dissertation problematizes the dominant yet fraught narrative around young men in urban Africa.

    OLD AIDS, NEW AIDS: A Study on the Effects of Antiretroviral Treatment on Non-Governmental Support Communities for HIV-Positive People in Germany2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 poäng / 45 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the ways in which improvements in HIV and AIDStreatment affect the German non-governmental support community for HIVpositivepeople. It draws on two months of anthropological fieldwork conductedin four different federal states in Germany between June and August 2012. Thisfieldwork consists of semi-structured interviews and participant observation.The study seeks to understand how the reduction in severity of an HIV diagnosisaffects the people involved in HIV/AIDS-related education and social support,and the ways in which their communities are reproduced. The thesis will arguethat a perception of AIDS as a normal, treatable disease coexists withdiscriminatory practices that stem from fear. It seeks to trace how both viewsaffect the non-governmental AIDS-sector. It will argue, further, that thoseindividuals who work formally and informally in the sector act as bearers of abiopolitical regime. The thesis demonstrates that a belief in the notion ofpersonal responsibility and autonomy is central to this form of biopolitics, andexplains the ways in which they adapt and extend this regime to the lives ofHIV-positive people. A belief in the notion of personal responsibility andautonomy causes HIV-positive people who want to avoid being perceived asirresponsible to keep their diagnosis to themselves.

    Linking Essentialist and Constructivist Ethnicity2013Inngår i: Acta Borealia, ISSN 0800-3831, E-ISSN 1503-111X, Vol. 30, nr 2, s. 129-153Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that the essentialist and the constructivist positions within theories of ethnicity are in fact compatible if one introduces a concept here called "internalized fluid capacities", connoting that which is inherently (genetically) dispositional — and in that sense biologically "anticipated" — but which remains to be developed into observable social characteristics through sociocultural impact. This perspective is based on the genetic capacity to mold or "instruct" the development of an organism from its embryonic state and onwards by using prior stages as points of departure for further instructions. In this way, certain fluid capacities become imprinted in individuals and collectivities through reinforcing interaction with the ambient society. These capacities may then harden and develop into apparent "essentials", forming a group's collective self-image. The article concludes with the suggestion that this explanatory model can be usefully applied to the debate around Swedish governmental definitions of Saamihood.

    40 Years in the Desert: Orthopraxy instead of Orthodoxy in an Anarchist Kibbutz2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 poäng / 45 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    With over 40 years of direct democratic organization and one shared bank account amongst 102 members, kibbutz Samar is a community which stands for an alternative life style compared to the historical development of the Kibbutzim Movement in Israel. In the development of the traditional kibbutzim, from communist/socialist organization to a partly forced privatization and capitalist renewal of the communist/socialist ideals, kibbutz Samar comes to represent an alternative entity through its exclusion of written and formalized rules. Tracing the ways that members of kibbutz Samar have been organizing their life alternatively in regard of the traditional and the renewal kibbutzim, I investigate how the findings of David Graeber's analysis of bureaucracy helps to understand notions of hierarchy, freedom, cooperation, shared economy, direct democracy, and anarchism. This study finds that the members of Samar conduct themselves, comprehensively, in terms of a particular kind of egalitarian management, which is identified as an anarchic orthopraxy (a way-seeking paradigm orientation) opposed to an orthodox (truth-seeking-paradigm) orientation. Given the tendency for globalized, neoliberal, economic, bureaucratic organization to concentrate power and thus constrict the potential means and possibilities of human organization, members of Samar create meaning and the transformation of social life by replacing the principal of formalized rule with that (principle) of social utility.

    Connected on a heart level: An anthropological discussion about interracial relationships in post-apartheid South Africa2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout history South Africa has been dominated by a white race group and during the era of apartheid racial segregation was encouraged as well as an idea of racial order was established through institutionalised racism. Marriage across racial borders was prohibited according to the Mixed Marriages Act. The end of apartheid and the transition to democracy in 1994 meant a radical political change within the country, but the issue of race became a question of social and economic inequality. In this essay I study the approaches and experiences of interracial couples in the post-apartheid society, and interracial couples impact on the South African society. I am particularly interested in the South Africans idea of social order today and whereas racial thinking is still present in the postapartheid society. I use qualitative content analysis to discuss ideas of order in relation to race and my material consist in audio files from interviews with interracial couples, as well as literature, books and articles. In my analysis I discuss cultural and social norms, fear of race pollution, prejudice and racial stereotypes as well as thoughts about unity and humanness. Racial thinking is still present in the South African society although the development of relationships across racial borders has increased since the end of apartheid. The interracial couples in my study notice a certain uncomfortableness among the people in their surroundings, some more than others, because people are still getting used to the thought of interracial couples. Although racist beliefs and power relations are still implied by the surroundings the couples appear to feel increasingly at home in South Africa, even though they live in an in-between world, in a New South Africa.

    Diaspora at Home?: Wartime Mobilities in the Burkina Faso-Côte d'Ivoire Transnational Space2013Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the period 1999-2007, more than half a million Burkinabe returned to Burkina Faso due to the persecution of immigrant labourers in neighbouring Côte d’Ivoire. Ultranationalist debates about the criteria for Ivorian citizenship had intensified during the 1990s and led to the scapegoating of immigrants in a political rhetoric centred on notions of autochthony and xenophobia. Having been actively encouraged to immigrate by the Ivorian state for generations, Burkinabe migrant labourers were now forced to leave their homes and livelihoods behind and return to a country they had left in their youth or, as second-generation immigrants in Côte d’Ivoire, had never seen.

    Based on 12 months of ethnographic fieldwork in Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire, the thesis explores the narratives and everyday practices of returning labour migrants in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso’s second-largest city, in order to understand the subjective experiences of displacement that the forced return to Burkina Faso engendered. The analysis questions the appropriateness of the very notion of “return” in this context and suggests that people’s senses of home are multiplex and tend to rely more on the ability to pursue active processes of emplacement in everyday life than on abstract notions of belonging, e.g. relating to citizenship or ethnicity.

    The study analyses intergenerational interactions within and across migrant families in the city and on transformations of intra-familial relations in the context of forced displace-ment. A particular emphasis is placed on the experiences of young adults who were born and raised in Côte d’Ivoire and arrived in Burkina Faso for the first time during the Ivorian crisis. These young men and women were received with scepticism in Burkina Faso because of their perceived “Ivorian” upbringing, language, and behaviour and were forced to face new forms of stigmatisation and exclusion. At the same time, young migrants were able to exploit their labelling as outsiders and turn their difference into an advantage in the competition for scarce employment opportunities and social connections.

    Våld i nära relationer, en jämställdshetsproblematik ur en normativ synvinkel: En antropologisk studie med fokus på mannen som den utsatte2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The main topic of this study is IPV (Intimate Partner Violence) with a focus on the men that are exposed. The empirical data was examined from a stigma and a gender perspective. The purpose of my thesis was to investigate how different beliefs and social norms about male and female affect how men exclude themselves and are excluded, for example, from social safety nets. I started my study with inspiration from internet-based material about a woman and a man's experience with IPV. I fetched empirical data by attending a seminar on Youth IPV and in semi-structured interviews of two professionals, one who works with male victims of IPV and one who works with violence victims in generally. I also interviewed four men who has been exposed to IPV. Through my informants' stories I was able to investigate whether there were social circumstances that could affect IPV, which came about through varying concrete examples. Also how IPV distinguishes itself when the man is the vulnerable instead of the woman because most of the information and material available in Sweden is about the woman's over-represented vulnerability. With the help of previous research and literature that I used in my study, I came to the conclusion that the most effective method of analyzing IPV among men is through the personal meeting in an interview because the subject is otherwise taboo. My study showed that IPV differs where the practitioner is male or female because women use more mental violence while men use most physical violence and since the mental violence is easier to hide, the subject remains unlit partly because of the men's own silence and partly because the environment is not equipped to emphasize this kind of problem.

    "Den här jävla våldtäktskulturen": Ett antropologiskt perspektiv på kvinnliga vittnesmål om övergrepp publicerade på Instagram under 20182019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen fokuserar på Instagram i egenskap av kontemporärt digitalt verktyg för berättande om kvinnliga vittnesmål om övergrepp, som publicerats mellan den 1 oktober till 31 november 2018 på två svenska Instagram-konton vilka fokuserar på att publicera berättelser om sexuellt våld och relationer. Kontona skapades efter #MeToo-uppropet och är ett resultat av samtida samhällsdiskurs, med patriarkala strukturer och våld i fokus. Med hjälp av deltagande observation och insamling av 20 berättelser och hundratals kommentarer besvaras frågor om hur kontona fungerar som social, politisk och intersubjektiv sfär. Jag menar att kvinnorna genom att dela berättelser och erfarenheter om sexuellt våld på en digitalt konstruerad trygg plats, bygger en gemensam föreställning om rådande könsmaktsordning, män som grupp och om samhället i stort. Vittnesmålen tjänar samtidigt till att belysa ämnen som övergrepp och jämställdhet, samt bearbeta trauma på individnivå genom att offer för relaterade traumatiska händelser blir givna en röst på platsen.

    "Åldern är ju bara en siffra": En antropologisk litteraturstudie om medicinska åldersbedömningar på ensamkommande flyktingbarn2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay was to examine the justifications of the swedish government to perform medical age assessments on unaccompanied refugee children seeking asylum in Sweden. These governmental justifications were analyzed through Michel Foucault's theory of disciplinary power as well as through anthropological research on classification of age. The empirical material consisted of a selection of websites from different authorities that process medical age assessments. These were then studied through critical discourse analysis. The essay showed that these justifications can be understood as an expression of disciplinary power, where medical age assessments discipline individuals to docile bodies. Furthermore, the analysis also showed that the governmental justifications were partly founded upon western concepts of how a child is supposed to be and what a child is entitled to.

    "They Want to Control Everything" - Discourse and Lifestyle in Contemporary Turkey2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 poäng / 45 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Based upon anthropological fieldwork and contemporary literature as well as an analysis of media reports and statements by government officials such as current president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, this thesis explores the interrelations between political discourses, lifestyle, and identity construction in contemporary Turkey. In the thesis, it is depicted how certain lifestyle choices are legally limited or (drawing on moral, religious, and nationalist discourses) labeled as 'bad' or 'wrong' by the current AKP government and certain parts of society. The informants interviewed for this thesis, mostly well-educated, young Turkish urbanites, feel like these restrictions of lifestyle choices limit their possibilities to freely construct and express their identities, which leads to feelings of resentment, unhappiness, and discomfort. By analyzing political developments in the 20th and 21st century, it is furthermore illustrated that authoritarianism has been a substantial part of the Turkish state project ever since the founding of the Turkish Republic. The current political events and conflicts about lifestyle and identity construction, it is argued, have to be understood in this context rather than depicting them as based upon a strict dividing line between 'secular' and 'religious' parts of society, as it is often depicted in Western media.

    The Rebellion of the Chicken: Self-making, reality (re)writing and lateral struggles in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 poäng / 45 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Historical sources suggest that the bad reputation of Bioko island ―a product of mixed exoticism, fear of death and allure for profit— might have started as early as the first European explorations of sub-Saharan Africa. Today, the same elements seem to have been reconfigured, producing a similar result in the Western imagination: cultural exoticization, fear of state-sponsored violence and allure for profit are as actual as ever in popular conceptions of Equatorial Guinea. A notion of ongoing terror keeps conditioning the study of the tiny African nation, resulting in media trends and academic discourses polarized by the grand themes of oil/money/corruption and human rights violations —which are highly counterproductive when trying to account for Equatoguineans’ everyday practices, mainly because the violence exerted by the state has shifted in nature. Deploying a triple theoretical framework made up by Michel de Certeau’s (1984) concepts of readers/writers/texts and strategies, Michael Jackson’s (2005) work on being, agency and intersubjectivity, as well as Bayart’s (1993) ‘politics of the belly’, this thesis explores some of the complex cultural and social-psychological strategies that urban populations in Malabo have developed in order to create, sustain and protect the integrity of their social selves while living in inherently oppressive environments. People’s means of personhood negotiation are observed through contemporary systems of beliefs, narratives and practices. I suggest that negotiations are products of, but also preconditions for, the existence of a social apparatus and the integrity of the selves moving within its discursive boundaries. Consequently, Equatoguineans’ strategies for self-making are seen as potentially responsible for reproducing a destructive status quo. This idea is further developed through the concept of lateral struggle, a form of social violence alternative to top-down flows which builds on sociality as culturally calibrated forms of symbolic interaction between selves constructed in a zero sum fashion. The dynamics of lateral struggles are illustrated through ethnographic data on what people phrase as el Guineano’s innate ‘rebelliousness’, which in turn visibilizes processes of collective self-making and the verbalization of negative national stereotypes. Possibilities for the rise of more positive types of personhood based on a habitual splitting of individual self from national other are explored. Finally, a brief assessment of how such splitting could be hindering people from collectively writing a ‘homeland’ is made.

    One Nation, One Discourse: A Study of Nationalization and National Identity Formation in Two Syriac Ethno-religious Communities in Turkey2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 poäng / 45 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the nationalist approach, which has been effective bothin state policies and public discourses in Turkey with the purpose ofunderstanding the effects of nationalization process of Turkish Republicand national identity formation in Turkey on Syriac individuals fromdifferent generations in the Tur Abdin area and the Syriac communitymembers in Istanbul, Turkey.This project is based on a historical research and two months of fieldworkin the area of Tur Abdin and in Istanbul, Turkey among Syriac communitymembers showing that nationalistic discourse appears as the basic motivefor suppressive, exclusive and discriminative political implementations andpolicies while creating legitimacy for them. The project further argues thatthe leading doctrine that shapes the ruling elites’ actions in this era appearsas ‘a unified scheme of formation that is based on one nation, one languageas Turkish and one religion as Islam’ that results in elimination andoppression of Syriac people. While the ruling elites have been trying toimpose national homogeneity on people and infuse identification with theTurkish nation through the ideology of nationalism, the process resulted inSyriac people’s disconnection from their language, history and memories intime. It also shows that the Turkish Republic’s nationalization process iscomposed of different time periods and political administrations showingcomplementary characteristics and a sense of continuity regarding theirideological framework, as well as their political and economicalimplementations. The policies on the nationalization process in the earlyyears of the Republic carry traces of the preceding understandings, as wellas policies, whereas they are also followed by the subsequentadministrations.

    The proof is in the pudding/steak: Halal food consumption, moral overtones and re-negotiation of categories among Muslim believers in Stockholm County2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of my thesis is showing how consumers who live in Stockholm County deal with the daily practice of halal food providing. I then analyse the main contradiction that emerges from my research, meaning the opposition between those who by ‘halal’ and those who do not. I propose an investigation of halal consumption or ‘non-consumption’ through the lens of economic processes, responsibility, (re)negotiation of food categories, gender roles, food morality, urban space and feedback systems.

    My aim is to demonstrate how ‘halal’ does not configure as a single category, but a group of categories which is intimately connected to the idea of the consumer to do ‘the right thing’. This ‘right thing’ is not necessarily following all the rules ‘according to the cook book’, but rather interpret the rules in order to ensure the welfare of the loved ones, economically, spiritually and physically. Besides, I will observe the other side of the coin, analysing the role of the food seller, who is included in the moral system which requires him to do the right thing too (not deceive the customer, be a good Muslim, ensure a good quality of the food, keep the prices low).

    Ecological Nationalisms: Nature, Livelihoods, and Identities in South Asia2014Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The works presented in this collection take environmental scholarship in South Asia into novel territory by exploring how questions of national identity become entangled with environmental concerns in Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and India. The essays provide insight into the motivations of colonial and national governments in controlling or managing nature, and bring into fresh perspective the different kinds of regional political conflicts that invoke nationalist sentiment through claims on nature. In doing all this, the volume also offers new ways to think about nationalism and, more specifically, nationalism in South Asia from the vantage point of interdisciplinary environmental studies. The contributors to this innovative volume show that manifestations of nationalism have long and complex histories in South Asia. Terrestrial entities, imagined in terms of dense ecological networks of relationships, have often been the space or reference point for national aspirations, as shared memories of Mother Nature or appropriated economic, political, and religious geographies. In recent times, different groups in South Asia have claimed and appropriated ancient landscapes and territories for the purpose of locating and justifying a specific and utopian version of nation by linking its origin to their nature-mediated attachments to these landscapes. The topics covered include forests, agriculture, marine fisheries, parks, sacred landscapes, property rights, trade, and economic development. Gunnel Cederlof is associate professor of history, Uppsala University, Sweden. K. Sivaramakrishnan is professor of anthropology and international studies and director of the South Asia Center, Jackson School of International Studies, at the University of Washington.

    Mercenaries of democracy: The 'Politricks' of remobilized combatants in the 2007 general elections, Sierra Leone2008Inngår i: African Affairs, ISSN 0001-9909, E-ISSN 1468-2621, Vol. 107, nr 429, s. 515-539Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The 2007 general elections in Sierra Leone marked a decisive moment in the country's post-war recovery. In this article we show how political parties strategically remobilized ex-combatants into 'security squads' in order both to protect themselves and to mobilize votes. We look at the tactical and strategic motives behind ex-combatants' choice to join the political campaigning and the alternatives (such as 'watermelon politics'), and we also examine the deep distrust between politicians and ex-combatants. Focusing on politics as the domestication of violence, we shed light on the continuation of pre-war and war-time mobilization of youth into politics and demonstrate how electoral moments can legitimize violence. In hindsight, the 2007 elections strengthened the democratic process in Sierra Leone, but this article shows on what fragile ground this success was built.

    Navigating youth, generating adulthood: social becoming in an African context2006Collection/Antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This book focuses on the lives and experiences of young people in Africa. On agents who, willingly or unwillingly, see themselves as belonging to the socio-generational category of youth and the ways in which they seek to shape and unfold their lives in a positive manner. Rather than seeing youth as either a social or cultural entity in itself, or as a predefined life-stage, the book argues for an exploration of how youth position themselves and are positioned within generational categories. In studying young people, social scientists must conceptualise youth as both social being and social becoming; a position in movement. It is from the duality of being positioned and seeking one's own socio-generational position that this book engages in the debate on contemporary African youth.

    The Return of Remains: How Can Dignity Be Better Safeguarded?2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis argues that the return of remains deserves greater attention in humanitarian action. When remains are returned in an undignified manner, or not at all, this can harm the deceased person’s family and provoke the surrounding community. The inability to return remains has a significant impact on the deceased’s family. A conceptual framework – using concepts of posthumous dignity, boundary objects and moral injury – is outlined in this thesis. An extensive literature review was conducted to landmark events and publications regarding human remains and the impact of returning remains to families. After examining a variety of sectors and professions for return-of-remains practices, it has been observed that the way in which remains are returned to families, including what they are interred within and surrounded by, is critical to preventing moral injury and other distress to the families. The thesis also contends that efforts to return remains to families are widely and well received by affected communities; however these efforts require a well-coordinated approach of standardised procedures. Examples of prevailing practices from several professions are used to propose a humanitarian approach for the return of remains to families, with a goal of safeguarding the dignity of the dead and helping families cope with their loss. An analysis of such case material makes possible the formulation of recommendations on how to improve practices in the humanitarian sector. Protecting the dead is a responsibility of the living, and guidance is needed on how to return remains in an appropriate and sensitive manner.

    Young female fighters in African wars: conflict and its consequences2008Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the numerous armed conflicts that are tearing the African continent apart, young women are participants and carry guns alongside their male comrades-in-arms. Challenging the stereotype of women in African wars as victims only, this issue of the Nordic Africa Institute Policy Dialogues shows how in modern African wars women have often been as active as men. Female fighters are victimized, yet they are not mere victims. Girls and young women who volunteer to fight often possess quite considerable strength and independence. Programmes for disarming, demobilizing, and reintegrating former fighters must be based on better understanding of the range of women's roles and experiences in war and post-war settings in order to act in a gender-sensitive way and to empower this group of women in the aftermath of war.

    Young women in African wars2007Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Young women are combatants in contemporary African wars. They also participate in a whole array of different roles. However, by and large, they remain invisible to us. In fact, our “northern” hackneyed views on women’s innate non-participation in war prevent us from seeing specific needs for young women during and in the aftermath of wars. For instance, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programmes often fail to address appropriate needs for young women and in a variety of ways “prevent” them from partaking. Issues of stigma, safe demobilisation, individual concerns for post-war marriage, health and education, need to be addresed in both a more gendered way, but also with an apposite understanding of young women’s agency in both peace and war. In this Policy note it is argued that to improve policy and programming efforts it is necessary to broaden the understanding of young women’s roles and participation in armed conflict in Africa historically and today.
