    Producing children's corporeal privacy: ethnographic video recording as material-discursive practice2010In: Qualitative Research, ISSN 1468-7941, E-ISSN 1741-3109, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 249-268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the use of video cameras in participant observation drawing on approximately 300 hours of video data from an ethnographic study of Swedish family life. Departing from Karen Barad’s post-humanistic perspective on scientific practices, the aim is to critically analyse how researchers, research participants and technology produce and negotiate children’s corporeal privacy. Ethnographic videotaping is understood as a material-discursive practice that creates and sustains boundaries between private and public, where videotaping is ideologically connected to a public sphere that may at times ‘intrude’ on children’s corporeal privacy. The limits of corporeal privacy are never fixed, but open for negotiation; ethnographers may therefore unintentionally transgress the boundary and thus be faced with ethical dilemmas. The fluidity of privacy calls for ethical reflexivity before, during and after fieldwork, and researchers must be sensitive to when ethical issues are at hand and how to deal with them.

    Digital society generates new challenges on Child Welfare Services2017In: Croatian Medical Journal, ISSN 0353-9504, E-ISSN 1332-8166, ISSN ISSN 0353-9504, Vol. 58, no feb, p. 80-83, article id 2017.58.80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital society has created a new situation that challenges the present discourse on public services. Since it is only a recent phenomenon, digital society has not yet been in-cluded in the broader filed of social work education and practice. In the present text, we focus on casework with children. The examples described in the text are taken from Scandinavian experiences and reflect our background and practice in social work with children. However, we dare to say that the situation is more or less the same in the rest of Europe, as illustrated by the presented social work examples and references from wider European context.

    Barnavårdsutredningar av ensamkommande barn: En kvalitativ studie av socialsekreterares erfarenheter2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Det utredningsverktyg som idag används vid barnavårdsutredningar är verktyget Barns behov i centrum (BBIC), ett verktyg som är anpassat till att stötta nätverk som finns i barnets närhet, vanligtvis familjen, som socialt system runt barnet. För ensamkommande barn däremot, lyser dessa sociala nätverk med sin frånvaro. Ensamkommande barn till Sverige är en idag ökande grupp av människor i samhället vilket har skapat ett behov av väl anpassade verktyg i utredningsarbetet för att identifiera, strukturera, och utreda insatser för dessa grupper, inom ramen för det sociala arbetet.

    Syfte: Studiens syfte är att undersöka socialsekreterares erfarenheter av det sociala utredningarbetet av ensamkommande barn till Sverige.

    Metod: För att uppnå studiens syfte har nio semi-strukturerade intervjuer med socialsekreterare i Mellansverige genomförts och analyserats med en hermeneutisk deduktiv tolkningsmetod.

    Resultat: Resultatet visar på svårigheter i det praktiska sociala arbetet kring ensamkommande barn enligt socialsekreterares erfarenheter. Svårigheter beskrevs som att (i) utredningsverktygen inte var anpassade till uppgiften, (ii) att det fanns bristande riktlinjer kring arbetets utförande, (iii) att det kunde finnas en misstro från barnens sida gentemot myndigheter, (iv) att utreda inom den lagstadgade tidsramen, samt (v) att det kunde finnas bristande resurser för arbetets genomförande. Socialsekreterarna hade även erfarenhet av stå ensamma i att finna lösningar på dessa brister. Erfarenheterna analyseras utifrån Bronfenbrenners utvecklingsekologiska modell.

    Slutsatser: Utformningen av BBIC-verktyget kan möjligtvis skapa svårigheter i socialsekreterares utredningsarbete av ensamkommande barn, då ensamkommande barn kan ha en annan utvecklingsekologi än vad BBIC förutsätter.

    Implikationer för det sociala arbetet: En anpassning av BBIC-verktyget efter de särskilda omständigheter och behov som gäller för ensamkommande barn i Sverige kan vara till fördel för framtida socialt arbete. Vidare forskning bör göras inom området utredningsarbetet av barn som lever i en utvecklingsekologi skild från den BBIC förutsätter.

    Rätten till goda levnadsvillkor: En kvalitativ studie av förvaltningsrättens domar kring rätten till LSS insats2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning:

    Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka hur funktionshindradepersonersrättigheter enligt SFS 1993:387 Lagen om stöd och service till vissa funktionshindrade (LSS) befästs eller eventuellt urholkas inom ramen för beslut som fattasinom offentlig förvaltning. Det empiriska materialet i denna studie bestod av tolv rättsfall från förvaltningsrätten. En kvalitativ abduktiv ansats användes, där en socialkonstruktionistisk grundsyn och Nancy Frasers kritiska perspektiv på kampen om behoven i ett senkapitalistiskt välfärdssamhälle utgjorde förståelseramen genom analysprocessen, vilken utgjordes av en kombination av kritisk diskursanalys och tematisk analysprocess. Detta tillvägagångssättbedömdes användbart för attidentifiera diskurser som kom till uttryck genom resonemangen förda kring innebörden av begreppet “goda levnadsvillkor”, vilket var centralt för undersökningen.Forskningsansatsen möjliggjorde även ett synliggörande avojämlika sociala maktrelationer och maktordningar som kan anses framträda inom LSS domar. Genom att relatera undersökningensfynd till tidigare forskning kring problemområdet har fynden kunnattolkas och förståsur ett större sammanhangoch på så sätt har rimliga slutsatser kunnat dras utifrån frågeställningen. Resultatet av studienhar formulerats genom följande diskurser: diskursen om definitionen och tolkningen av behoven, diskursen om behovet av social gemenskap och att “komma ut i samhället”, fritidsaktivitetsdiskurs & normal livsföringsdiskurs, juridisk diskurs, anhörig-och familjediskurs, samt diskursen om frigörelse, självständighet och normal livsföring.Dessa diskurser anses vara möjliga tolkningar avstudiensempiri samt möjliga exempel på vad en större forskning som omfattar ett större material skulle kunna komma fram till.Undersökningen har lett till ett konstaterande om att ett grundläggande antagande hos beslutsfattare tycks vara att LSS ska tolkas restriktivt. I denna studie relateras denna restriktiva tillämpning till en nyliberalistisk politisk syn vilken anses gradvis ha bidragit till att konstruera om politikers och beslutsfattares förståelse av syftet med LSS åt det restriktiva hållet, vilket kan anses urholka det ursprungliga syftet med LSS, som det beskrevs då lagen först infördes.

    Idioter väljer att sätta ord i våra munnar: En kvalitativ fokusgruppstudie om hur unga män med utländsk bakgrund från socioekonomiskt utsatta områden upplever massmedias rapportering2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie handlar om hur unga män med utländsk bakgrund bosatta i socioekonomisktutsatta områden upplever massmedia och dess föreställning gentemot området de bor i.

    Studien är kvalitativ genom fokusgruppsintervjuer och berör frågor om hur dessa unga mänmed utländsk bakgrund beskrivs, hur massmedia talar om socioekonomiskt utsatta områdensamt hur massmedia spelar en roll i rapporteringen av dessa ovanstående faktorer.

    Vi kom fram till att dessa unga män med utländsk bakgrund bosatta i socioekonomiskt utsattaområden upplever att massmedia målar upp och reproducerar en övervägande negativ bild avde och området de bor i. De talar mycket kring sina egna känslor och hur upplevelsernapåverkar dem samt hur de speglar sig i deras liv.

    A science of unique events: Max Weber's methodology of the cultural sciences1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Max-Weber's methodological essays, published-posthumously as Gesammelte Aufsätze zur Wissenschaftslehre, continue to attract scholarly attention. They also continue to pose formidable problems to a modern reader. Part of the reason for this is that Max Weber both responds to and draws upon scholarly work that has long ceased to be familiar to social scientists. In order to grasp Weber's methodological project, we therefore need to uncover the historical co-ordinates within which it was framed. A framework of this order is to be found in the discourses over method that took place in the human sciences in Germany during the 19th century - particularly in jurisprudence, economics and history. Max Weber's methodological views, however, did not square with any of the positions taken in these debates. He had other methodological convictions. They were partly taken over from Heinrich Rickert, partly from Johannes von Kries. Heinrich Rickert's philosophy of science furnished Weber both with a general theory of science and with a theory of concept formation in the historical sciences, whereas Johannes von Kries provided him with a theory of causality. It can be shown that these theories combine in Max Weber's methodological thought to provide the basis for theoretical notions such as the ideal type - but also that this has implications both for Weber's empirical work and for the characteristic way in which he criticises the different standpoints in the prevailing methodological discourse.

    Culture, Religion and Spirituality in Coping: The Example of Cancer patients in Sweden2006Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research has shown significant associations (negative and positive) between religious and spiritual factors and mental health. Much of this research, however, has been conducted in the US, where religion is an integrated part of most people’s lives. Other studies on religious and spiritually oriented coping conducted outside the US have also focused on religious people. Yet many are non-believers, and many believers do not consider themselves religious, i.e. religion is not an important part of their life. There are also societies in which the dominant culture and ways of thinking dismiss the role of religion in people’s lives. Research on religious coping rarely takes these people into consideration. This book is based on a research project aimed at identifying the religious and spiritually oriented coping methods used by cancer patients in Sweden as an example of societies where religion is not an integrated part of the social life of individuals. The empirical data for the study were based on interviews with cancer patients. Fifty-one interviews were conducted in various parts of Sweden with patients suffering from different types of cancer. The chosen method was semi-structured interviews. Based on the study, the book discusses the impact of rationalism, individualism, secularism, natural romanticism and a tendency toward spirituality rather than religiosity in Swedish ways of thinking on the choice of coping methods among informants. Concerning the use of religious and spiritually oriented methods by the Swedish informants, we learn that gaining control over the situation is a very important coping strategy among Swedish informants. The informants show a strong tendency toward relying primarily on themselves for solving problems related to their disease. Receiving help from other sources, among others God or a supreme power, seems to primarily be a way to gain more power to help oneself, as opposed to passively waiting for a miracle. For the informants, thinking about spiritual matters and spiritual connection seems to be more important than participating in religious rituals and activities. Turning to nature as a sacred and available resource is a coping method that all informants have used, regardless of their outlook on God, their religion and philosophy of life or their age and gender.

    Abstract [en]

    Islamic women in Iran challenge the clergy's monolithic rights of interpretation by radically reconstructing gender and Islamic discourses. The result has been the flourishing of a new Islamic feminism in Iran which interprets certain aspects of the Koran's view on gender differently than other Islamic feminist movements.

    In Iran, Islamic feminists emphasize the historical context of the Koran and by doing so reformulate Islamic concepts and Islamic law from a "feminine" per¬spective. They open the door to the interpretation of sacred texts and dialogue on women issues to groups other than Muslims. They wrestle with the clergy's gen der conservatism and their hate of the West. By finding common ground with Western feminists and by viewing their struggle as an integral part of the global feminist struggle, Islamic feminists in Iran weave new textual connections between Muslim and Western women.

    Hard and Heavy Music: Can It Make a Difference in the Young Cancer Patients’ Life?2009In: Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy, Vol. 9, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     The aim of the study on the basis of which this article is written was to examine, from the patients’ perspective, the role music plays as a coping method when facing cancer. Here, using music as a coping method refers to using music (listening to and/or playing music individually or participating in a music therapy program) frequently in order to deal with the significant demands presented by cancer. A semi-structured interview with 17 cancer patients who have used music (listened to or played music) in order to cope with their illness was applied. Five of interviewees were men and twelve women. The youngest informant was 24 and the oldest 73 years old. In the paper presented in this conference I will discuss the result of my study concerning the effects of hard and heavy music in coping with cancer. The result of study shows that hard and heavy music as a coping method:

    - by calling in question the cultural demands of having control over their feelings, helps the young cancer patients to obtain their control,

    - by questioning what are conventionally defined as meaning of life, helps the young cancer patients to find a meaning,

    - by calling in question  the cultural requests of being calm and collected helps the young cancer patients to get their tranquility,  

    - by cheering unhealthy behaviors like using drug and having violent sex helps the young cancer patients to recover their mental health.

    All this due to the possibility the heavy and hard music provides for the young cancer patients to get self-confidence by putting away the false mask one wear and be who she/he really is.

    Islamic feminism in Iran: Feminism in a new Islamic Context2005In: The word Meeting of Democracy, Promoting Foundations,, Stockholm 28-30 August 2005. The Swedish Parliament house., 2005Conference paper (Other (popular scientific, debate etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract:

    If it is true that Feminism as well a social movement as a philosophical aspect is based on a whole system of individual rights where these rights constitute a framework within which every person has right to choose his/her own separate goods, provided that no one does deprived others of theirs. Seeing in this light feminism is not originated from the Islamic milieu, but is imported from the Western world.

    The emergence of the “Islamic feminism” during the last two decades is however an indication of, from one side, the failure of pro-western feminism in many Middle Eastern societies in understanding the social and cultural circumstance of these societies, and from the other side, of a serious and immediate need for a fundamental change in the status of the women in this region.

    It is obvious that so-called “Islamic feminists” base their ideas and claims, first of all, on Islam and legitimise their activities with the help of the Islamic tradition. Yet, Islamic thought is not the only grounds for the Islamic feminists' ideas and demands, especially in Iran. We can trace the footprint of Western ideas in their ways of thinking. Certain issues witness this claim: Gender as a social construction, individualistic perspective, Post-modern ideas and affiliation with Western feminism. The aim of this article is to discuss some possible reasons which have made possible the opening a “windows of opportunity” in Iran for the development of an approach to the issue of women among Muslim women which can lead to a radical Chang in the view of these women on the women’s’ place in the private as well as social life.

    In two ways these Muslim “feminist” women represent “a new direction“ within “Islamic feminism”.

    The first way in which the Iranian Islamic feminists’ interpretive work departs from previous attempts is the way in which they expand the domain of reinterpretation to new linguistic construction of the Arabic language.

    Another way, which signifies the Iranian Islamic feminists from the other Muslim feminists, is their emphasis in a radical expansion of the domain of interpretation.

    Why such a “radicalism”? The aim of this article is to answer this question.

    Islamic Feminism in Iran: Feminism in a New Islamic Context2006In: Journal of feminist studies in religion, ISSN 8755-4178, E-ISSN 1553-3913, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 33-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Challenging the clergy’s monoclinic interpretational power, Islamic feminists in Iran, by emphasizing the historical context of the holy texts and reformulating Islamic concepts and law from a “feminist” perspective, are developing a new direction in rethinking gender in Islam. By opening the doors of interpretation of sacred texts and debates on women issues to other groups than Muslims, they have braked with reactive gender conservatism and West phobia prevailing among fundamentalists, and have embarked on connecting themselves with Western feminism and weaving new textual connections between Muslim women and Western feminism.

    Kultur och hälsa2008Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hälsa är en viktig fråga för varje individ och varje samhälle. I ett land med invandrare som har socialiserats i olika samhällen med skilda uppfattningar om hälsa och ohälsa, uppstår behov av att fördjupa såväl allmänhetens som hälso- och sjukvårdspersonalens kunskap om betydelsen av kultur, religion och etnicitet i medicin- och hälsofrågor.

    I denna bok belyser författaren, Fereshteh Ahmadi, hur viktig kunskap är om olika kulturers och religioners syn på hälsa och hälsa i bemötandet av patienter.

    Boken vänder sig i första hand till studenter på grundutbildningsnivå samt personal inom hälso- sjukvården men den kan även användas av andra som är intresserade av att skaffa sig kunskaper om kulturens och religionens betydelse för förståelse av ohälsa.

    Kulturens indvirkning på åndlig coping med kræft2008In: Kan bjerge flytte Troen? [Red: Christoffer Johansen og Niels Christian Hvidt], Copenhagen: Gyldendal , 2008, p. 211-232Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: The existential and spiritual aspect of coping with different serious illnesses is one of the research fields that has not been focused in many countries among others Sweden. The lack of cultural approaches in studying the religious coping have paved the way for the increasing of the tendency towards  generalization of the results obtain from research conducted among Americans to other people.  To get pass the above mentioned problem, I have studied the religious and spiritual coping strategies used by cancer patients in Sweden. The design of this research was a qualitative study. The study reveals the use of some spiritual methods by Swedish patients which are not found in other studies. Sanctification of nature, positive solitude and, altruism are three of these methods which are presented in this article.

    This study shows the impact of culture and ways of thinking in using religious and spiritual coping methods when facing stressors caused by cancer. In this respect, tendency towards spirituality, rationalism, pragmatism and individualism are found to have impacted the choice of different religious and spiritual coping methods by the Swedish informants.

    Music as a method of coping with cancer: a qualitative study among cancer patients in Sweden2013In: Arts and Health, ISSN 1753-3015, E-ISSN 1753-3023, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 152-165Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: This study investigated patients' understanding of the role of music in coping and in influencing their well-being. Methods: A qualitative study was conducted based on semi-structured interviews with 17 cancer patients. Participants were chosen from a group of patients who had listened to or played music as a means of coping with their illness. Results: The study shows the importance of considering the roles that different kinds of music play in coping with cancer. The music of nature, healing music, religious music and cheerful music each have different benefits for patients. Conclusions: A patient's situation and his or her individual characteristics determine the types of music that can act as a useful or harmful coping strategy. Therefore, it is essential to investigate the types of individual characteristics that can make listening to different kinds of music a helpful or harmful coping method.

    Song lyrics and the alteration of self-image2011In: Nordisk tidskrift for musikkterapi - Nordic Journal of Music Therapy, ISSN 0809-8131, E-ISSN 1944-8260, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 225-241Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to examine, from a patient perspective, the role music plays as a coping method when facing cancer, I conducted a qualitative study based on semi-structured interviews with 17 cancer patients. The patients were between 24-73 years of age and had used music (listened to or played music) to cope with their illness. In this article, four case studies served to highlight one of the major findings: that the lyrics of religious, “cheerful”, and hard and heavy music can help cancer patients obtain a balance in their inner feelings by identifying themselves with the person to whom the song lyrics are addressed. This result may be of interest to therapists using music therapy interventions, especially with patients suffering from serious illness.

    Abstract [en]

    A common discussion in the late modern era is the role that tradition plays concerning individual

    identity. This forms a background to our article that focuses on consumer culture and

    one of its characteristics – fashion. To what extent does consumer culture and fashion contribute

    to the undermining of traditions, and how does this affect individual identity? We

    discuss two interpretations of consumption in shaping individual identity: the first interpretation

    maintains that by consumption individuals obtain an increasing freedom of choicemaking

    them free from the power of tradition, and thereby responsible for their lifestyle

    choices. According to the second interpretation, the free choice is illusory. This choiceis

    strongly influenced by factors such as social class and producers’ manipulative skills. Contrasting

    classical social theorists with contemporary fashion theory we argue that late modern

    fashion is characterized by quick changes and pluralism that often stand in contrast to

    tradition. We further discuss the increased importance of taste and new diffusion patterns

    as signs of a more individualized fashion, and discuss neo-tribalism as a post-traditional kind

    of community.

    Aggressiv musik som copingstrategi (Aggressive music as a coping method)2010In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 87, no 2, p. 78-86Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I artikeln ”aggressiv musik och coping” diskuterar vi aggressiv musik (heavy metal, hårdrock, punkrock, hård rap och aggressiv popmusik) som copingstrategi vid den rollkonflikt som kan uppstå i samband med att någon drabbas av cancer. Detta eftersom den sjukroll som tenderar att tillskrivas en person i många fall strider mot den roll man själv önskar inneha. Diskussionen förs utifrån två fallbeskrivningar hämtade från en studie som fokuserar på musikens roll för personer som drabbats av cancer.

    I analysen av de två fallen, fann vi att ålder var en aspekt av betydelse beträffande vid vilken tidpunkt under sjukdomstiden som ett motstånd gentemot sjukrollen växte fram och därmed skapade en konflikt mellan rollerna.

    Det är viktigt att se att en copingstrategi är en mötesplats mellan individ och situation. Den är komplex, mångbottnad och högst kontextuell. Vi visar på att aggressiv musik, som ofta förknippas med aggressivitet och våld, kan verka som en funktionell och högst användbar copingstrategi för unga personer som drabbas av cancer.
