    Gendering boundary work: exploring excluded spaces in supermarket job rotation2015In: Gender, Place and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography, ISSN 0966-369X, E-ISSN 1360-0524, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 188-204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores the establishment of gendering divides in organisations by bridging Hernes' (2004) typologies of physical, social and mental boundary work with notions on the practice of gender as negotiated in everyday organisational activities. In the investigated Swedish supermarket, the pre-store, a narrow, front-stage space in which only women worked, was excluded from the job rotation that otherwise dominated the organisation of work in the store. This study examines: (1) how and on what grounds the divides of the pre-store were established in the supermarket and (2) how spatial divides were incorporated into the practice of gender and work in the supermarket. The findings suggest that the divides that are visible through the exclusion of the pre-store from the job rotation involved not only the allocation of work and space but also multiple and complex physical, social and mental spatial negotiations undertaken by both employees and managers. Together, these factors neutralised the divides as an aspect of the activities. First, the notion that gender was irrelevant for organisational decisions makes gender a non-issue for the organisation of the pre-store activities. Second, the notion that women and men are essentially different provided a ground for explaining why, despite being an organisational non-issue, work and workers were in fact organised along gendered lines in the supermarket. The study contributes with qualitative insights regarding the micro-political practices that make gender into a neutralised non-issue in organisations and, in particular, the intertwinement of spatial practices and negotiations.

    ”I trust what’s written but I don’t think it’s good”: old age pensioners’ persistency in the practice of obtaining information from the news media2017In: MedieKultur: Journal of Media and Communication Research, ISSN 0900-9671, E-ISSN 1901-9726, no 63, p. 9-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In spite of the fact that we are living in a digital era the position of traditional news media as the fi rst chosen source of information has not been altered. Th is is especially true when it comes to older persons. What are the reasons for this persistency? Th is article gives an account of how older persons refl ect on whether and why they believe in, and trust, news press reporting and their reasons for acquiring news from traditional news media. Using a discourse theoretical logics approach we found that whether or not the informants believed in and trusted the news they all referred to an overarching fantasy stating that it is a right and an obligation of an ideal citizen to update oneself of the surrounding world via the news media. We also found social habits to be crucial for the informants’ practice of obtaining information from the news media.

    Doing age: Methodological reflections on interviewing2013In: Qualitative Research, ISSN 1468-7941, E-ISSN 1741-3109, Vol. 13, no 6, p. 668-684Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is not only to discuss how the interview method has implications for the construction of aged identities, but also how the research area conditions the positionings that are made within the interview. Drawing on a set of qualitative semi-structured interviews with persons identifying as, and having experiences of volunteering as ‘class grandparents’ in schools for children, this article highlights and investigates three regimes that proved central in these interviews and that affected the construction of the data: the ‘confessional mode’, the ‘use of life scripts’ and the ‘theoretical identifications’ affecting the interview conversations.

    ”Et problem i systemet”: Ældrebilleder i mediernes repræsentationer af den aldrende befolkning2013In: Gerontologi, ISSN 1604-8644, no 1, p. 16-19Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [da]

    Mediernes repræsentationer af forskellige grupper har betydning for, hvordan disse kategorier af mennesker bliver betragtet, og hvordan de ser på sig selv (Lin et al 2004). Internationalt er medierepræsentationer af befolkningers aldring blevet beskrevet som apokalyptiske og med fokus på økonomiske omkostninger og krisetækning (Vincent 1996; Gee 2002). I denne artikel undersøger jeg, om dette også gælder for den svenske presse. Med søgeord som ”åldra* befolkn*” og ”åldra* samh*” er ca 600 artikler blevet analyseret. De udvalgte aviser var Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter og Västerbottens-Kuriren.

    'I was struck dumb': identity production in Swedish class grandparent narratives2011In: Pedagogy, Culture & Society, ISSN 1468-1366, E-ISSN 1747-5104, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 403-417Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I discuss a number of excerpts from interviews with class grandparents; that is to say, older people helping out in schools for children in Sweden. The interviews focused on experiences of taking part in class grandparent projects. Indirectly, however, they dealt with identity. By treating the interviews as stories, as ways of storying people’s lives, I show how some of these discourses seemed especially central to producing subject positions in the narratives on class grandparent experiences. I also suggest that the studied stories are ideological in character, in the sense that they constitute fantasies that cover over the contingencies of everyday life.

    “In the good old days”: Insidious nostalgia and the constitution of old age identity2010In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 248-256Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper older people are studied through qualitative in-depth interviews regarding the constitution of identity. This is based on their participation in specific projects where they take part in schoolwork. The point of departure is that these more or less organised projects provide older people with a physical as well as a social space in which such a constitution can take place. Specific attention is not only directed toward the productive use of nostalgia, but also at the rhetorical use of already established subject positions drawn from the fields of production and reproduction, and from discourses on productive ageing and participation. The intersection of these discourses was not only found to be normative and excluding, but also liberating and a necessity.

    Abstract [en]

    What do people mean when they say that rural Sweden is dying? This article scrutinizes what happens when Swedish Norrlandic ‘rurality’ is articulated with ‘death’. Working from a perspective of discourse theory, statements of the death of rural areas can be said to comprise both unproblematised notions of the end of an era and politiziced notions of the unfairness of the situation, which in turn may strengthen rural identifications.

    Abstract [en]

    The article explores the logics approach to critical explanation, as it has been described by Jason Glynos and David Howarth (2007). The approach addresses the question of applying discourse theory to empirical phenomena, and it suggests three different logics – social, political and fantasmatic – that work to help the researcher construct critical explanations of practices and regimes. In the article the logics approach is described, exemplified and discussed in relation to the discipline of ethnology.

    Digital rurality: producing the countryside in online struggles for rural survival2017In: Journal of Rural Studies, ISSN 0743-0167, E-ISSN 1873-1392, Vol. 51, p. 73-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Interest in the rural has increased in Sweden during the last decades and the rural has become increasingly present as an object of politics, not least in social media. While social media have been recognised for their significance for social movements generally, less is written about how to understand rural movements online. The aim of this article is to study how politics of the rural is performed in and through social media. Seven Sweden-based Facebook accounts were studied using discourse theory. Three different discourses were identified – a discourse of mobilising action, a discourse of re-representation and a discourse of frustration. Of these, we specifically highlight how the focus on urban norms and the practice of performative re-representation constituted the digital arenas as spaces where people who identified with rural areas were linked together, had their experiences and opinions acknowledged and their rural identities not only re-constituted, but recognised and valued. We also show how the different discourses in turn produced two opposing notions of rural areas: as dying or as alive. These two notions worked to structure the politics of the rural in different ways.

    Between activity and solidarity: comprehending retirement and extendedworking lives in Swedish rural areas2018In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 44, p. 1-8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The expected costs of population ageing have generally led to perceived needs to postpone the age of retirement. Drawing on 20 semi-structured interviews, the aim of this paper is to describe the ways that the possibility of an extended working life is comprehended by persons over the age of 60 living in sparsely populated areas in northern Sweden. While defining themselves as active, the interviewees argued strongly in favour of the right to retire. What are often described as opposing retiree subject positions healthy and active vs. vulnerable and dependent were partly transgressed in the interviews. The interviewees performed a solidarity that had the potential of including their future selves as possible objects of solidarity. Another important result was that in comprehending the possibility of an extended working life, morally charged notions of geographic place became central.

    Problematic demography: representations of population ageing in the Swedish daily press2011In: Journal of Population Ageing, ISSN 1874-7884, E-ISSN 1874-7876, Vol. 4, no 3, p. 165-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ageing of populations has been a topic of discussion during the last few decades, but how is this subject represented in the media, and what images of old age are produced? In this article we present the results of a quantitative content analysis that investigates how the concept of population ageing has been represented in Swedish local and national daily news press between 1988 and 2009, and the old age positions that are offered in these representations. We also use discourse analysis in order to qualitatively examine the ways in which the concept of population ageing is articulated in these news press articles and the old age positions that are thereby constituted. The results show that the concept is constituted as a naturalised expert concept, and is primarily used in order to contextualise articles about future political and economical difficulties or even crises. By articulating population ageing with both political policies, political economy and older people’s (as a group) reported need for care and services, population ageing was constituted as a political economic concern rather than a problem for the aged individual.
