    Polyamory2016In: The International Encyclopedia of Ethics / [ed] Hugh LaFollette, John Wiley & Sons, 2016Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The term “polyamory” stands for love relationships between more than two romantic or sexual partners, or loving more than one person. It means being open to engaging in consensual non-monogamous love relationships at the same time and in this way it is different from serial monogamy (having only one romantic partner at a time, but several during one's lifetime). In a broader sense, polyamory is also taken to denote a willingness to accept that romantic love may involve more than two partners. A core tenet of polyamory is that loving one person does not need to exclude loving another, and that love is, or should be, inclusive.

    Postmenopausal Motherhood Reloaded: Advanced Age and In Vitro Derived Gametes2015In: Hypatia, ISSN 0887-5367, E-ISSN 1527-2001, Vol. 30, no 2, p. 386-402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we look at the implications of a prospective emerging technology for the case in favor of, or against, postmenopausal motherhood. Technologies such as in vitro derived gametes (sperm and eggs derived from non-reproductive cells) have the potential to influence the ways in which reproductive medicine is practiced, and will bring new dimensions to debates in this area. We explain what in vitro derived gametes are and how their development may impact on the case of postmenopausal motherhood. We briefly review some of the concerns that postmenopausal motherhood has raised – and the implications that the successful development, and use in reproduction, of artificial gametes might have for such concerns. The concerns addressed include arguments from nature, risks and efficacy, reduced energy of the mother, and maternal life expectancy. We also consider whether the use of in vitro derived gametes to facilitate postmenopausal motherhood would contribute to reinforcing a narrow geneticized account of reproduction and a pro-reproductive culture that encourages women to produce genetically related offspring at all costs.

    LL-böcker på bibliotek: en studie av bibliotekariers förmedlingsarbete av lättläst litteratur2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att undersöka hur bibliotekarier arbetar för att förmedla LL-böcker till dess potentiella läsare. Jag har velat skapa en förståelse för vilka problem som kan omge denna litteraturform sett från bibliotekariernas perspektiv. Undersökningen bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med bibliotekarier på sammanlagt sex olika bibliotek, tre stadsbibliotek och tre filialer, i Västerbottens och Norrbottens län. Jag har använt mig av grundad teori som metod för att genomföra undersökningen. Resultatet visade att LL-böcker ofta är ett eftersatt område på biblioteket. Detta beror delvis på att det inte alltid finns någon som är ansvarig för denna litteraturform. Studien visade också att bibliotekarierna hade dålig kunskap om LL-böckernas användningsområden och den breda och differentierade målgruppen. Till stor del förklarades detta genom resursbrister, men det visades även att bibliotekariernas personliga intresse och engagemang för LL-böckerna är en avgörande faktor för att förmedlingsarbetet ska fungera.

    Plasticity of executive functioning in young and older adults: immediative training gains, transfer, and long-term maintenance2008In: Psychology and Aging, ISSN 0882-7974, E-ISSN 1939-1498, Vol. 23, no 4, p. 720-730Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The authors investigated immediate training gains, transfer effects, and 18-month maintenance after 5 weeks of computer-based training in updating of information in working memory in young and older subjects. Trained young and older adults improved significantly more than controls on the criterion task (letter memory), and these gains were maintained 18 months later. Transfer effects were in general limited and restricted to the young participants, who showed transfer to an untrained task that required updating (3-back). The findings demonstrate substantial and durable plasticity of executive functioning across adulthood and old age, although there appear to be age-related constraints in the ability to generalize the acquired updating skill.

    Dimensions of Peer Sexual Harassment Victimization and Depressive Symptoms in Adolescence: A Longitudinal Cross-Lagged Study in a Swedish Sample2016In: Journal of Youth and Adolescence, ISSN 0047-2891, E-ISSN 1573-6601, Vol. 45, no 5, p. 858-873Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sexual harassment is commonly considered unwanted sexual attention and a form of gender-based violence that can take physical, verbal and visual forms and it is assumed to cause later depression in adolescents. There is a dearth of research explicitly testing this assumption and the directional pathway remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to use a feminist theoretical framework to test competing models in respect of the direction of the relationships between dimensions of peer sexual harassment victimization and dimensions of depressive symptoms from ages 14 to 16 in adolescents. The study also aimed to investigate gender differences in these pathways. Cross-lagged models were conducted using a three-wave (2010, 2011 and 2012) longitudinal study of 2330 students (51 % females) from Sweden, adjusted for social background. Girls subjected to sexual harassment in grade seven continued to experience sexual harassment the following 2 years. There was weaker evidence of repeated experience of sexual harassment among boys. Depressive symptoms were stable over time in both genders. Sexual name-calling was the dimension that had the strongest associations to all dimensions of depressive symptoms irrespective of gender. In girls, name-calling was associated with later somatic symptoms and negative affect, while anhedonia (reduced ability to experience pleasure) preceded later name-calling. Physical sexual harassment had a reciprocal relationship to somatic symptoms in girls. In boys, name-calling was preceded by all dimensions of depressive symptoms. It is an urgent matter to prevent sexual harassment victimization, as it is most likely to both cause depressive symptoms or a reciprocal cycle of victimization and depression symptoms in girls as well as boys.

    Samverkan i högre utbildning2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Studenters samverkan med omgivande samhälle är ett förekommande inslag i högre utbildning. Att sammanföra teori och praktik, så att teori tillämpas i praktiskt arbete och vice versa, är en viktig kompetens för kommande mediepraktiker. Före- kommande praktiska inslag under högre utbildning är exempelvis examensarbeten eller praktikkurser. Ibland riktas dock kritik till samverkansinslag så som dessa, kritik gällande praktikkursers vetenskaplighet. Därmed är det av betydelse att utforska hur samverkansinslag i högre utbildningar kan genomföras, samtidigt som en vetenskaplig höjd uppnås.

    Denna artikel presenterar en mindre studie av samverkansformer i högre ut- bildning. Vanliga former fanns vara studiebesök, gästföreläsningar, workshops, fallstudier/projekt, mentorskap, handledning, examensarbeten samt praktikarbete. En modell för progression av samverkan inom kandidatprogram presenteras i slutet av artikeln. Denna modell kan inspirera genomförandet av samverkansinslag. Ett antagande som växte fram under studiens gång, är att en parallell progression av samverkan och vetenskaplighet inom högre utbildning, främjar studenters förmåga att sammanföra teori och praktik.

    A semantic scale for evaluating the UX of a MRP system2017In: Proceedings of the European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics 2017, 2017, p. 59-60Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This poster presents the development of an instrument, semantic differential scale, intended for evaluating the User Experience (UX) of a Mobile Remote Presence (MRP) technology. By combining a semantic scale with participants’ reflection on differences between individual assessments, we argue that insight can be made regarding how people assess their experience, as such, social and co-experience may be measured.

    After giving birth to a baby, breastfeeding becomes your responsibility: infant feeding perceptions and practices among women in Yaoundé, Bamenda and Bandja, Cameroon, Africa2018In: International Research Journal of Public and Environmental Health, ISSN 2360-8803, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 38-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Ministry of Public Health of Cameroon advises mothers to follow the World Health Organization’s recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months of life and to continue breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years or beyond. Despite these recommendations, malnutrition due to inadequate feeding practices is still prevalent in Cameroon. Therefore, this study aims to explore infant feeding perceptions and identify factors influencing infant feeding practices in Cameroon. Forty-nine women aged 19 to 38 who had infants aged 6 days to 15 months were purposively selected from hospitals during the vaccination days and interviewed until saturation. The research tools included six qualitative group interviews, with each group comprising 6 to 10 women. The study was conducted in the rural area of Bandja and the urban areas of Yaoundé and Bamenda. Data were analysed using content analysis. In the study, breastfeeding was agreed upon as the best way to feed infants and was commonly practised for 1 to 2 years. Nevertheless, few infants were breastfed exclusively. Complementary foods were often nutritionally inadequate; many children were not given fruit, vegetables or foods of animal origin on a daily basis. Cultural beliefs, tradition, community norms and low educational and economic levels negatively influenced the implementation of appropriate infant feeding recommendations. The short duration of exclusive breastfeeding and the poor food diversity are the main problems. In response, it is necessary to strengthen the position of women, increase the period of maternal leave, introduce sustainable and practical education for both parents about breastfeeding, and provide good, local complementary foods.

    Inequity in physiotherapeutic interventions for children with Cerebral Palsy in Sweden: a national registry study2019In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the distribution of physiotherapeutic interventions for children with Cerebral Palsy in Sweden from an equity perspective, considering sex, country of birth and geographical region.

    Method: This national cross‐sectional registry study includes children with Cerebral Palsy aged 0‐18 years who participated in 2015 in the Swedish national quality registry, the Cerebral Palsy follow‐up programme, CPUP. Comparisons and associations between physiotherapeutic interventions and sex, country of birth and geographical regions were conducted using chi‐square and logistic regression analysis, controlling for cognitive level, level of motor function, age group and dominating symptom.

    Results: Of the 2855 participants, 2201 (79%) had received physiotherapy. Children born in Sweden had 1.60 times higher odds (95% CI 1.10‐2.33) of receiving physiotherapy compared with children born in foreign countries. Distribution of physiotherapeutic interventions differed significantly between geographical regions. No associations between sex and physiotherapeutic interventions were observed.

    Conclusion: The results of this study indicate inequity in care in Sweden towards children with Cerebral Palsy born in other counties. Further, physiotherapeutic interventions were not equally distributed in different geographical regions of Sweden. Knowledge of inequity is crucial in order to address the problem.

    Physiotherapeutic interventions and physical activity for children in Northern Sweden with cerebral palsy: a register study from equity and gender perspectives2017In: Global Health Action, ISSN 1654-9716, E-ISSN 1654-9880, Vol. 10, article id 1272236Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Young people with disabilities, especially physical disabilities, report worse health than others. This may be because of the disability, lower levels of physical activity, and discrimination. For children with cerebral palsy, access to physiotherapy and physical activity is a crucial prerequisite for good health and function. To date, there is limited knowledge regarding potential gender bias and inequity in habilitation services.

    Objectives: To map how physiotherapeutic interventions (PTI), physical leisure activity, and physical education are allocated for children with cerebral palsy regarding sex, age, level of gross motor function, and county council affiliation. This was done from a gender and equity perspective.

    Methods: A register study using data from the Cerebral Palsy follow-Up Program (CPUP). Data included 313 children ≤18 years with cerebral palsy from the five northern counties in Sweden during 2013. Motor impairment of the children was classified according to the expanded and revised Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS).

    Results: In three county councils, boys received more physiotherapy interventions and received them more frequently than girls did. Differences between county councils were seen for frequency and reasons for physiotherapy interventions (p < 0.001). The physiotherapist was involved more often with children who had lower motor function and with children who had low physical leisure activity. Children with lower motor function level participated in physical leisure activity less often than children with less motor impairment (p < 0.001). Boys participated more frequently in physical education than did girls (p = 0.028).

    Conclusion: Gender and county council affiliation affect the distribution of physiotherapy interventions for children with cerebral palsy, and there are associations between gender and physical activity. Thus, the intervention is not always determined by the needs of the child or the degree of impairment. A gender-bias is indicated. Further studies are needed to ensure fair interventions.

    Ett avgörande val för framtiden?: Faktorer som påverkar grundskoleelevers val mellan högskole- och yrkesförberedande gymnasieprogram2012Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En ny gymnasiereform har trätt i kraft under hösten 2011och syftet med den nya gymnasiereformen var att öka statusen och kvaliteten på de yrkesförberedande programmen. Det har också skett en förändring i behörighetskraven vilket betyder att det är större skillnader mellan högskole- och yrkesförberedande program. Valet mellan högskole- och yrkesförberedandeprogram kan därmed bli avgörande för framtida universitetsstudier. Vi har undersökt betydelsen av studie- och yrkesvägledningen där faktorer som styr utfallet av den direkta kontakten av studie- och yrkesvägledningen redovisas. Vårt resultat visar att den nya gymnasiereformen 2011 har påverkat elevernas val mellan högskole- och yrkesförberedande program. Eleverna tänker emellertid inte på samma sätt som regeringen utan är mer strategiska i sitt gymnasieval. De väljer hellre ett högskoleförberedande program för att inte begränsa sina framtida studie- och yrkesmöjligheter. Dessutom visar studien att flickor och pojkar väljer efter olika kriterier. Faktorer som socioekonomisk bakgrund, omgivning, stöd av föräldrar, skolans personal och studie- och yrkesvägledningen är några påverkansfaktorer som vi presenterar i vårt resultat. I jämförelse med tidigare forskning ser vi flera samband i vårt resultat.

    Gender and politics in eighteenth-century Sweden: Queen Louisa Ulrika (1720-1782)2017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book retraces the life and experience of Princess Louisa Ulrika of Prussia (1720-1782), who became queen of Sweden, with a particular emphasis on her political role and activities. As crown princess (1744-1751), queen (1751-1771) and then queen dowager (1771-1782) of Sweden, Louisa Ulrika took an active role in political matters. From the moment she arrived in Sweden, and throughout her life, Louisa Ulrika worked tirelessly towards increasing the power of the monarchy. Described variously as fierce, proud, haughty, intelligent, self-conscious of her due royal prerogatives, filled with political ambitions, and accused by many of her contemporaries of wanting to restore absolutism, she never diverted from her objective to make the Swedish monarchy stronger, despite obstacles and adversities. As such, she embodied the perfect example of a female consort who was in turn a political agent, instrument and catalyst. More than just a biography, this book places Louisa Ulrika within the wider European context, thus shedding light on gender and politics in the early modern period.

    Widows' political strategies in traditional communities: negotiating marital status and authority in eighteenth-century France2016In: Gender and political culture in early modern Europe, 1400-1800 / [ed] James Daybell and Svante Norrhem, Routledge, 2016, p. 123-139Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The social and economic status of widows in early modern France is characterized by a paradoxical dichotomy. On one hand, they gained social and political authority not only within their household but also within their communities through their new marital position, which granted them a wide spectrum of rights and duties. Indeed, widows could contract, ask for justice, appear on tax roll, lend and borrow money, or serve as collaterals. Yet, on the other hand, their position within the society was considered suspicious –women living without men- and always been subject to caution. Witchcraft trials in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, for instance, have particularly highlighted their target status. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, judicial records continued to underline the conflict and difficulties that many of them encountered in their daily life and exchange with men.

    But because their marital status could possibly weakened widows and engendered social resentment towards them, they, I argue, gradually came to negotiate their social position within their community, especially through economic means and extensive cooperation such as the re-allocation and redistribution of capital in the credit market, for instance, contributing not only to secure their old days but also, and above all, to achieve social consideration and honor.

    Through a cross analysis of loans and judicial records from 1700 to 1789, I am able to retrace widow’s political agenda and negotiations with special reference to the strengthening of their social and economic position within their community.  In the first part, I study the political status of widows in traditional communities and its evolution. Then, in a second part, I focus on their economic position and strategies in the credit market—a public and cooperative sphere—that progressively became important in a context of general indebtedness through the redistribution of wealth and allocation of capital. Finally, I argue that widows gradually developed strategies to negotiate their marital status and their honor through cooperative means.

    Anatomy of early modern patriarchy2018In: Revisiting gender in European history, 1400-1800 / [ed] Elise M. Dermineur, Åsa Karlsson Sjögren and Virginia Langum, New York: Routledge, 2018, p. 10-28Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thanks to the emergence and dynamism of new research fields over the past forty years, women and gender historians have been able to (re)define essential concepts and tools of analysis in order to examine women's past. Some of these findings and observations, however, came mostly from the examination of recent historical events and experiences, and are often wrongly used and applied to other historical periods. Patriarchy is one of them. In early modern Western historiography, patriarchy is usually described as a social organization marked by the supremacy of the father/husband in the family, the legal dependence of wives and children, and the reckoning of descent and inheritance in the male line. But as patriarchy has been theorized in the light of capitalism's outcomes, this chapter argues that it should not be used as a significant parameter for premodern studies. This chapter proposes, therefore, to revisit the paradigm of patriarchy applied to early modern Europe, with special reference to France. Because it has long been assumed that patriarchy was propped up by a male monopolization of the 'public' sphere of market relations, demonstration of prominent female activity in the latter prompt a re-thinking of the reach of patriarchy in real lives. Looking at the lives and experiences of female peasants in eighteenth-century France, mostly to the light of market activities, I highlight the discrepancy between theory—i.e., the written rules, the custom and even the ancient tradition that supported patriarchy—and new social practices and norms that challenged it.

    Abstract [en]

    The scholarly notion of gender has only recently been framed. In the aftermath of World War II, a series of social demands and protests emerged which shook the Western world. These movements placed social and political inequality at the core of their struggle. In particular, feminist movements, collectively called the second wave, blossomed throughout the Western world in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s. Their powerful socio-political dimension and dynamism quickly attracted worldwide attention. This chapter also presents an overview of this book. The book covers various regions in Europe in different time periods at all levels of society. It covers a wide socio-professional spectrum, from elite women to female artisans, domestics and peasant women. The book redresses a lack of scholarship on gender and 'the dark or unofficial side of the preindustrial economy'. It examines the illness experience articulated by two late medieval mystical writers through the possibilities afforded by medicine and religious culture.

    Revisiting gender in European history, 1400-18002018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Do women have a history? Did women have a renaissance? These were provocative questions when they were raised in the heyday of women's studies in the 1970s. But how relevant does gender remain to premodern history in the twenty-first century? This book considers this question in eight new case studies that span the European continent from 1400 to 1800. An introductory essay examines the category of gender in historiography and specifically within premodern historiography, as well as the issue of source material for historians of the period. The eight individual essays seek to examine gender in relation to emerging fields and theoretical considerations, as well as how premodern history contributes to traditional concepts and theories within women's and gender studies, such as patriarchy.

    Interactive media use and youth: Learning, knowledge exchange and behavior2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern advancements in technology have changed the way that young people use interactive media. Learning from such methods was not even considered until recently. It is now slowly defining the landscape of contemporary pedagogical practices.

    Interactive Media Use and Youth: Learning, Knowledge Exchange and Behavior provides a comprehensive collection of knowledge based on different perspectives on quantitative and descriptive studies, what goes on in the contemporary media landscape, and pedagogical research on formal and non-formal learning strategies. This book outlines interactive media as an emerging research area, growing around young people and contemporary digital arenas. The field is growing in size, shape and complexity and the need for study is urgent.

    Young people and online risk2011In: Youth culture and net culture: online social practices / [ed] Elza Dunkels, Gun-Marie Frånberg and Camilla Hällgren, Hershey, Pennsylvania (USA): IGI Global , 2011Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The authors suspect that the young perspective has been left out when online risk and safety are discussedin contemporary research. The aim of this chapter is to give a critical approach to this matter and questionfear as a driving force for protecting young people online. Interviews with children about their views ofinternet use (Dunkels, 2007) and a study of safe use guides from European countries conducted in 2008(Lüders et al, 2009) form the empirical base. The discussion in the chapter is underpinned by ideas ofchildhood as a social construction, emerging ideas of power relations pertaining to age and theories oftechnology reception. The authors also introduce a metaphor, the layer cake, to better understand howthe same action can be viewed from different vantage points.

    Youth culture and net culture: Online social practices2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The globalization of our society has changed the social culture of young people forever. In this day and age, this online social culture is growing in size, shape, and complexity and the need for further study is imperative.

    Youth Culture and Net Culture: Online Social Practices aims to engage the complex relationship between technology and youth culture, while outlining the details of various online social activities. This book focuses on generational aspects of online social practices, as well as other facets, such as gender and social class. Presenting the views of young people regarding social practices is paramount in a time when the educational system, policymakers and non-governmental organizations are calling for this knowledge.

    Det lokala kornet som matarv: En studie i kornets förändrade roll i området Höga Kusten genom ett tvärvetenskapligt arbete2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For this study we have investigated the barley grain, and its importance in the High Coast of Sweden. In this region the traditional food products are flatbread, porridge and “palt”, that traditionally contain barley.

    The locals have an ambition to promote the High Cost as an gastronomical region, but we believe more knowledge supporting this food heritage is needed. We have chosen to work in an interdisciplinary way, combining the disciplines of gastronomy, agricultural history and archaeology. This comparative research has in turn provided us with a broad history of barley, from the first permanent settlements in the High Coast during the Iron Age, to present day. Due to the lack of definitive description of what classifies as a local product we conclude that more research is needed in this area.

    What do conferences do?: What is academics' intangible return of investment (ROI) from attending an academic conference?2018In: Journal of Teaching in Travel & Tourism, ISSN 1531-3220, E-ISSN 1531-3239, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 94-107Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Conferences are funny events. They are self-evident elements of our lives as academics: meetings that occur, often annually; take place in various locations; and involve (hopefully) like-minded people, aiming to share their latest research findings. Conferences are actually so selfevident that very little research exists analysing what takes place at conferences, why people attend them in the first place, and essentially what the conference does to delegates as participants. This article is, on one hand, a reflective report from an academic conference: TEFI 9 —Celebrating the Disruptive Power of Caring in Tourism Education. But it is also simultaneously an analysis of the implicit and explicit rationale and return on investment for attending academic conferences, in the words of three, at that time, PhD candidate rapporteurs and one professor rapporteur, who acts as this article's narrator.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article I investigate the need to provide feminism with a theory of matter. I argue that the attention to matter given by New Materialist Karen Barad is symptomatic of a refusal to accept the limits of matter and its constituting effects. I suggest that a critical definition of matter can be found in the works of Judith Butler and especially in her definition of melancholy in relation to performativity. I argue that melancholy is central for the understanding of not only gendered desire, but also matter. Matter is an intrinsic part of Butler's theory on gender and desire which she presents in opposition to both social constructivism and biologism. I also read performativity as a concept introduced by Butler to point towards the foreclosure of matter as necessary for comprehensible bodies. I relate my reading of matter in Butler's texts to Barad's 'matter as performative'. This 'misconstruction' I see as symptomatic of a 'material melancholy' in the works of Barad. My main intention is to show how we as feminist researchers need to see that matter can be defined and analysed in many different manners and that there is not one (old nor new) way to do this.

    Performativity as a symptom: the trembling body in the works of Butler2015In: Lambda Nordica: Tidskrift om homosexualitet, ISSN 1100-2573, no 2-3, p. 125-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är vanligt att betrakta performativitet som en möjlighet till subversiva handlingar som radikalt kan förändra vår relation till genus. Genom en omläsning och omtolkning av några av Judith Butlers texter, menar jag att genus förvisso reproduceras och manifesteras performativt, men att performativitet inte konstituerar genus. Genus konstitueras genom heterosexuell melankoli; det är genom denna melankoli som inkorporeringen av könat begär/begärligt kön äger rum och den maniska repetition av genus som Butler kallar för performativitet är på så sätt snarare ett symptom på denna melankoli. Performativitet kan ses som psykiskt nödvändigt för att utesluta kroppsliga oförenligheter och beroenden genom att ge upphov till en psykosomatisk illusion av en koherent och autonom kropp. I bästa fall kan performativitet visa på andra versioner av genus som levbara, men enbart genom att använda sig av samma illusion av en koherent kropp. Denna användning av performativitet kan vara användbar för en humanistisk feminism som i första hand strävar efter att erkänna och humanisera marginaliserade subjektspositioner, men det är samtidigt ett angreppssätt som även kan riskera att individualisera identiteter och ge upphov till gränser mellan kroppar i stället för solidaritet. De distinktioner jag försöker påvisa i min tolkning av performativitetsbegreppet och dess relation till förkroppsligad melankoli kan därför vara väsentliga att påpeka för att undvika en (ny)liberal annektering av politisk organisering och aktivism.
