    Abstract [sv]

    Problemlösare och avslöjare – om kulturanalytikerns dubbla uppdrag

    Utbildning i praktisk kulturanalys syftar bland annat till att studenterna ska kunna översätta vetenskapligt grundad kulturkunskap till praktiskt användbara insikter i en värld präglad av motsättningar, inte minst kring kön, klass, ålder och etnicitet. Men kulturanalysens värde är inte främst att ge enkla förklaringar till varför folk beter sig som de gör eller snabbt verkande recept mot sociala problem av olika slag, utan i att utveckla förmågan att förstå och reda ut komplicerade sammanhang i människors möten med varandra. I denna text diskuteras vilka svårigheter kulturanalytikerns dubbla uppdrag som problemlösare och avslöjare skapar, men också hur denna lojalitetsparadox kan användas för att förstå det kulturellas betydelse som en både konserverande och förnyande kraft.

    Abstract [en]

    What happens when cultural analysis enters the world of applied research and academics become consultants working with corporations and public institutions? The divide between academic research and commercial ethnography has often hampered communication and critical exchanges between these two worlds.     In this paper we look at the experiences of consultants, drawing on Danish and Swedish examples. What can we learn from them when it comes to organizing research under time pressure, communicating results and making people understand the potentials of cultural analysis? And how could consultants “out there” benefit from a continuing dialogue with their colleagues in Academia?

    Abstract [en]

    L'étude culturelle des émotions se développe dans l'ethnologie contemporaine de la Suède. Cet article explore un contexte dans lequel les émotions sont souvent réprimées, voire « taboues » : le monde universitaire. Comment la jalousie, la fierté, la passion ou l'ennui sont-ils exprimés ou réprimés au quotidien ? Pourquoi le ton ironique est-il un style de communication si répandu parmi les enseignants-chercheurs ? L'article montre, à partir d'une plus vaste étude sur l'université, comment les sentiments s'inscrivent dans les situations les plus banales — la pause-café, les plaisanteries ou les attitudes corporelles adoptées au cours des séminaires de recherche. The cultural analysis of emotions is an expanding field in Swedish ethnology. Here we explore a setting, in which emotions often are repressed or taboo — that of our own Academic world. How are emotions like envy, pride, passion or boredom expressed or repressed in everyday university life ? Why is irony such an important style of communication among academics ? Using materials from a more general study of university, we explore how feelings are anchored in seemingly trivial situations, such as coffe break jokes or body language during research seminars. Die kulturanalytische Geflihlsforschung ist in der schwedischen Ethnologie stark im Kommen. Dieser Artikel widmet sich einem Bereich in dem die Gefühlswelt oft unterdrückt wird oder gänzlich tabuisiert ist — der Welt der Universität. In welcher Art und Weise spielen hier Eifersucht, Stolz, Leidenschaft oder Langeweile eine Rolle, werden sie ausgedrückt oder unterdrückt ? Warum ist gerade Ironie als stilistisches Mittel unter den Forschern so verbreitet ? Unter Rückgriff auf unterschiedliche Hilfsmittel soll gezeigt werden inwiefern Gefühle in gewöhnlichen Situationen — wie der Kaffeepause, in Seminaren, bei Scherzen oder durch die körperlichen Haltung ausgedrückt – eine Rolle spielen. Studiet av känslor är ett expanderande fält i svensk etnologi. Artikeln baserar sig på en stör re etnografisk Studie av vardagslivet i universitetsvärlden, här fokuserar vi på akademiska känslor i en institution där det känslomässiga ofta är tabuerat eller undertryckt. Hur uttrycks känslor som stolthet, avund, beundran och tristess i det akademiska livets olika situationer, frân kroppsspråket i en seminariediskussion till skämt under kaffepauserna ? Ett speciellt intresse ägnar vi ironin som viktigt akademiskt vapen.

    Pausens mikrodramatik: En essä om önskade och oönskade avbrott2012In: Sosiologi i dag, ISSN 0332-6330, E-ISSN 1893-4617, Vol. 42, no 1, p. 15-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What can a break or a pause be about and above all what does it do to social situations? We approach this question by contrasting two very different kinds of breaks. The welcome smoke and coffee breaks are compared to the embarrassing pause or the enforced waiting. Different approaches in cultural analysis and a range of empirical materials are tested in a discussion of what the seemingly unimportant may say about social relations in shifting contexts. Through a historical perspective we follow the formation and changes in breaks organized by the cigarette or the coffee mug. In the analysis of provoked interruptions our starting point is individual narratives. Pauses are experienced very differently and often contain a power dimension that needs to be explored.

    Frihetens milda disciplin: normalisering och social styrning i svensk sinnessjukvård 1850-19702003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to describe and analyse the institutionalized Swedish Psychiatric practice during the period 1850 and 1970 - the era of the large mental hospitals - in terms of a modem disciplinary project. Point of departure relates to the meeting between the admitted patient and the educational work of the mental hospital and its everyday practice. The main sources of information for this study consists among other things of case sheets and texts closely related to the work of the mental hospitals.

    The study has two important aspects. The first deals with the normalized procedures in the practice of mental care, and draws the attention to the relation between social and cultural standards and the way the mental hospitals reviews, treats and handles the patient. The second aspect deals with the actual administration and the techniques of the hospital to correct the patient and his/her actions in a desirable direction. An overarching discussion deals with the relation between liberating and Controlling practitioners, and how the Controlling power of the hospital relates to the modem society's conception of a independent man.

    At the same time as the physical coercion of the mental hospital diminished, controlling methods were required which were not merely based on obedience and Submission, but also on the participation and will of the patient. Informal system of rewards, confession-techniques as well as various forms of a conditionalised and regulated freedom is combined with a more concealed potential of coercion of the institution. The compulsory work is being analysed as the most important educational therapy - both socially and ethically. Work is being described as a liberal Controlling technique. By connecting work to the system of rewards as well as increased physical freedom enables the hospital to exercise control and predictability without resorting to coercion.

    How the hospital looked upon and handled the sexual body, and how cultural conceptions regarding sexual normality dominated the practical care-taking is being analysed with the starting point in case sheets. The sexual behaviour, especially concerning women, resulted in a meeting of different opinions between restraining and testing practitioners where moral reliability was a condition for physical freedom.

    The thesis describes a movement over time towards increased physical freedoms for the patients of the mental hospitals. This did not imply that the control or the normalization decreased in intensity. But rather that the forms and the conditions for these processes changed. The freedom that was placed in sight was always connected with the well behaviour of the patient.

    Were the "Kainulaiset" in the Kalix River valley Finnish or Swedish-speakers?: A reinterpretation of ethnonyms in Finland and the Gulf of Bothnia area from the Viking Age and onwards2018In: Acta Borealia, ISSN 0800-3831, E-ISSN 1503-111X, Vol. 35, no 2, p. 143-175Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Norwegian ethnonym Kven and the Finnish ethnonym Kainulainen occurred at latest in the first millennium AD. A tacit truth held today is that the ethnonyms represent the same ancient Finnish-speaking group, only named differently by Norwegians and Finns. The aim of the article is to find out whether the ethnonyms have been used to designate different groups of people. The Finnish-speakers in the nearby Tornedalen has called the lower part of the Kalix River in northernmost Sweden the Kainuu River and the upper part Kaalas River after the original Sámi name of the river. According to theories on ethnicity they called the lower part the Kainuu River [Fin. Kainuunväylä] because they wanted to mark out the Swedish speakers of different ethnicity, who they called Kainulaiset. The latter mainly settled the lower part of the river in the Middle Ages and Finnish-speakers the upper part. The article reveals that the Sámi variety Gainolâš was used by the Sámi for depicting dominant majority populations of different ethnicity, especially Scandinavians, but sometimes also Finns. It also argues that Finnish settlers in southern Finland and the northernmost Gulf of Bothnia used Kainulainen for depicting Swedish settlers when the two language groups first encountered.

    Tracking Gendered Streams2017In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 163-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the most prominent features of digital music services is the provision of personalized music recommendations that come about through the profiling of users and audiences. Based on a range of “bot experiments,” this article investigates if, and how, gendered patterns in music recommendations are provided by the streaming service Spotify. While our experiments did not give any strong indications that Spotify assigns different taste profiles to male and female users, the study showed that male artists were highly overrepresented in Spotify’s music recommendations; an issue which we argue prompts users to cite hegemonic masculine norms within the music industries. Although the results should be approached as historically and contextually contingent, we argue that they point to how gender and gendered tastes may be constituted through the interplay between users and algorithmic knowledge-making processes, and how digital content delivery may maintain and challenge gender relations and gendered power differentials within the music industries. Seen through the lens of critical research on software, music and gender performativity, the experiments thus provide insights into how gender is shaped and attributed meaning as it materializes in contemporary music streams.

    Paths to the new Arctic2015In: The new Arctic / [ed] Birgitta Evengård, Joan Nymand Larsen, Øyvind Paasche, Cham: Springer, 2015, p. 1-6Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the late eighteenth century explorers and scientists started venturing into the Arctic beyond areas that were already populated by Indigenous peoples and a smaller number of new settlers, and ultimately towards the North Pole. It was about as far as anyone could get from civilization at the time, and in many respects it remains this way to this day. What the first explorers saw had not yet been seen and recorded by Western civilization. They were the first to tell the stories and document the state of the Arctic – its physical landscape and Indigenous cultures. The prosaic descriptions are many and colourful, moving and poetic, and they also soon began to provide detailed accounts of the state of Indigenous living conditions. A shared feature in these first accounts, in prints and in paintings, is the descriptions of a harsh and barren landscape frozen in time; static and unchangeable, except for the swift sways in weather. Fanciful images of indigenous communities in isolated settlements, without any contact with “western civilization” came to shape the following generations perception of the Arctic. While the Arctic gradually became a place where new maps and lines drawn became a reality to outsiders, it was also, and had been for thousands of years, the homeland for many and diverse groups of indigenous peoples, surviving in at times unforgiving conditions while developing vibrant cultures, including strong traditions for adapting to changing conditions. The storytelling is today highly valued by itself and for its importance as a complement to science. And northern art has become more vibrant than ever as shown in some chapters here integrating the changes occurring on so many grounds. It is time for new images of the region to be established. With this book we wish these new images and the new knowledge constantly being produced to reach a broad audience as the interested general public as well as policy-makers and scientific colleagues.

    Kamp för bygden: En etnologisk studie av lokalt utvecklingsarbete2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    When collective action for community is defined as local development or as a struggle for survival different understandings are in focus. Politically, this kind of community action is defined as local development and understood in terms of growth and economics. An economic approach to community action is also emphasised in the EU-programmes that support local development groups and projects. On the other hand local groups describe their activities as a struggle for community and community survival.

    Inspired by feministic research approaches and with an interest in human aspects and values this study investigates meanings of community action as experienced and expressed by rural inhabitants and activists. The study is based on fieldwork that was carried out in a small rural community in the northern inlands of Sweden: Trehörningsjö. Since the middle of the 1990s, the women in Trehörningsjö have driven collective action to uphold the community. With its point of departure in the community and expanding into the arenas of reserach and politics, the study takes on the form of a reflexive research process in which the researcher's former knowledge and new understandings are made visible and discussed parallel with the interpretations made. The main focus of the study is the activist's demand of voice, visibility and worth.

    The first chapter presents the local community and provides a background to the study. The chapter includes an account of the reflexive approach that widened the field of research from a local to a translocal study of community action. In chapters two, three, four and five the struggle for community is reflected through fieldwork experiences in Trehörningsjö and other arenas beyond the village. Situated events and instances of collective action such as the fight for the local health care centre, are analysed as symbolic expressions of community values and rural importance. From chapter two and onwards, the study follows the footsteps of the leading female activist in and beyond the community itself; that is, the day-to-day work, meetings, conferences and other places where community action is acted out. The struggle for community is proven to focus on translocal rather than local action. In chapter six the fieldwork experiences - that tell about resistance and a struggle for community values and perspectives - are placed in the wider context of the rural development movement, local development research and governmental rural policy in Sweden. On all these arenas community action tend to be interpreted as local development in line with a growth perspective, rather than as community protests and struggles that expresses other meanings. Chapter seven takes the analyses and discussion further, and relates community struggle to concepts such as civil society and social economy. Anthony Giddens concept of life politics and Alberto Meluccis concept of collective action are used to deepen the analysis on how humane meanings and relation based aspects of community action are made invisible on the political "growht and development" agenda. Community struggle presents a possibility for rural inhabitants to (re)define and reclaim their community and themselves as important and valuable. However, to be able to understand what the concept of community struggle expresses, and demands, it needs to be acknowledged as a form of action that has the potential to challenge established bureaucratic and political defintions, which, in practice, proves to be difficult.

    Musical collaboration – or cooperation?: Exploring newspeak in Swedish arts policy2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent years have seen a process of regionalisation in Swedish culture and arts policy. This change goes under the name Kultursamverkansmodellen, which on the government’s webpage translates to “the cultural cooperation model” (Government Offices of Sweden 2015).

    The way samverkan is used in daily talk it should rather translate to collaboration – discussions, exchange of ideas and mutually beneficial activities. However, my material suggests elements of hierarchy in the system of cultural policy and funding where the term samverkan seem to signify a logic of consensus, in effect making it hard for cultural actors to challenge a system where certain music and art forms hold a hegemonic position.

    Drawing on Michel De Certeau’s concept of tactics and strategy (1984) and Ruth Finnegan’s pathways (Finnegan 1989), this paper uses a discourse logics approach (Glynos and Howarth 2007) to disseminate the term samverkan in multiple musicking contexts: in policy, by musicians, regional government officials and concert organisers, as well as in connection with other nodes such as “quality” and “projects”.

    The paper is part of the author’s on-going PhD project, which aims to shed light on how conditions for music making are constructed, protected and challenged by studying the intersection between governing and musical processes.

    Musiklandskap: musik och kulturpolitik i Dalarna2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, I study how conditions for music-making can be developed, maintained and challenged through government support processes in the Swedish region Dalarna. The research questions focus on the ways music, policy and governance relate to each other, what kinds of musicians and ways of making music are favored in these relations, and the agency and meaning of place. The study is made through participant observation of musical events, cultural policy meetings, and the everyday practice of cultural policy officials; interviews with musicians, organizers and cultural policy officials; cultural policy documents as well as musicians’ and organizers’ public documents such as concert posters and websites.

    The musical landscape of Dalarna is summarized as a complex web with pathways that reach far beyond the geographical borders of the region. The cultural cooperation model works as a hierarchy from center to periphery, from the national government, through agencies, regional government, musical institutions and organizers, musicians and audiences. We can analyze all these practices as being part of music, as musicking. But we could also describe them another way, where the practice of cultural policy is dependent on and conditioned by the musical practices it is set to govern. In this way, musicians are always in some way also creating policy.

    I discuss genre hierarchies and further argue that music can, or should, not always be motivated by its effects on regional development or its social impact, it also needs to be allowed to be unhealthy and unprofitable. When we support music, we should be aware that it can be a hobby as well as a business, a serious artistic endeavor as well as play. And more often than not, music is all of these things at the same time.

    Pathways of pop: Arts and educational policy, cultural industries and studieförbund2017In: Popular Music Studies Today: Abstracts for the conference of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, June 26–30, Kassel, Germany / [ed] Julia Merrill, Jan Hemming, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the Swedish voluntary education organisations called studieförbund bands get access to musical education, rehearsal space, gear and gigs. It’s a modest but long time funding without any demands on return. Studieförbund are considered to be one of the most important factors for the success of the Swedish music industry due to the educational role it plays for amateur musicians. As musicians gain experience they tend to “outgrow” the studieförbund. There are often no institutional aids to continue their progress, since arts policy regards pop genres to be commercial by default. Recently, former musicians and festival arrangers have developed regional coaching programs for pop bands, leaning on policies of “cultural and creative industries” instead of arts policies. Drawing on Michel De Certeaus concept of tactics and strategy (1984), as well as Ruth Finnegans pathways (1989), this paper discusses these efforts as tactical manoeuvres by music creators as they navigate regional spaces of education, arts policies and industry strategies.
