    From Emancipation through Employment to Emancipation through Entrepreneurship: An Analysis of the Special Labor Market Initiatives (BRYT) and Tax Deduction for Domestic Services (RUT) in Sweden2015In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 41-57Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Debates on gender equality policy in Sweden assume that women’s labor market participation is central to gender equality and should be promoted via special initiatives and programs. This paper examines how gender equality discourses have changed over time, analyzing Swedish state labor market policy in the 1980s and 1990s, special labor market initiatives to eliminate gender segregation and encourage nontraditional gendered work choices, and contemporary state subsidies for paid domestic work (i.e., tax deduction for domestic services). Critically interpreting these reforms reveals consistencies and continuities in how labor market participation is viewed as the key promoter of gender equality, revealing transformations in how gender equality is understood and constructed. A transition is discernible from state-funded programs and reforms to governmental agencies/authorities and state subsidies to promote enterprise and the growth of specific labor market sectors.

    Memory-making in Kiruna: Representations of Colonial Pioneerism in the Transformation of a Scandinavian Mining Town2019In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 104-123Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers colonial rhetoric manifested in representations of early settlement in the mining town of Kiruna in northernmost Sweden. Kiruna was founded more than 100 years ago by the LKAB Company with its centre the prosperous mine on Sami land. Continued iron ore mining has made it necessary to relocate the town centre a few kilometres north-east of its original location to ensure the safety of the people. The ongoing process of the town’s transformation due to industrial expansion has given rise to the creation of a memorial park between the town and the mine, in which two historical photographs have been erected on huge concrete blocks. For the Swedish Sami, the indigenous people, the transformation means further exploitation of their reindeer grazing lands and forced adaption to industrial expansion. The historical photographs in the memorial park fit into narratives of colonial expansion and exploration that represent the town’s colonial past. Both pictures are connected to colonial, racialised and gendered space during the early days of industrial colonialism. The context has been set by discussions about what Kiruna “is”, and how it originated.

    My aim is to study the role of collective memory in mediating a colonial past, by exploring the representations that are connected to and evoked by these pictures. In this progressive transformation of the town, what do these photographic memorials represent in relation to space? What are the values made visible in these photographs? I also discuss the ways in which Kiruna’s history becomes manifested in the town’s transformation and the use of history in urban planning. I argue that, in addressing the colonial history of Kiruna, it is timely to reconsider how memories of a town are communicated into the future by references to the past. I also claim that memory, history, and remembrance and forgetting are represented in this process of history-making and that they intersect gender, class and ethnicity.

    Relocating Kiruna: gender, place and past in the colonial context2013In: Book of Abstracts: The Ida Blom Conference, 2013, p. 32-32Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The city of Kiruna in Northern Sweden was founded by the LKAB Company 100 years ago around the prosperous mine. Today, the continued expansion of the mine has led to the risk of major ground collapse and makes it necessary to relocate the city centre, a few kilometres north-east of its previous location, in order to secure both safety and the continuance of iron ore mining. In this transformation process there is an ongoing discussion about what from the “old” Kiruna is worth saving, and what should be transformed and changed for the future. The relocation process generates a historiography about what Kiruna “is”, what it was in the past and what made it what it is today. In the vision of the municipality the idea of a masculine life style in Kiruna, formed by the mining industry, needs to be changed in order to make it feasible for women to remain. Due to these visions I ‘m interested in how Kiruna is historized from the ambitions of early colonization. I want to study how power is visualized in representations of gender, place and past. The representation of time in the fiction of this relatively young city constructs the memory of the city's history and ”the historic town” in the municipality’s production of information around the city transformation. This study will actualize the themes of colonial discourse: the male exploration of a feminized, “empty” northern land. In this presentation I will show examples of historical accounts and photographic memories and discuss the processes of power that arise in this social experiment. I’m asking how these processes both limit and enable democracy and participation of different groups of people in Kiruna. What history and whose history is reproduced and recounted for the future?
