    Abstract [en]

    Two old houses by the sea have made me an enthusiastic do-it-yourself man, performing manual work of different kinds. Switching between writing and manual DIY can be experienced as moving between separate realities, where body and mind are employed in different ways. Using autoethnography as a starting point I observe myself performing manual tasks, using various tools. Being an acting subject as well as an observed object I then try to capture complex events in written words. In this process the differences as well as the similarities between building and writing become clearer. For example, the questions of involvement, troubleshooting and aesthetics are crucial in both activities. You have to be mentally present, think hard and be concerned about the look of your result. The reality of manual work is linguistically organized. It is symbolically constructed, learned and communicated. Accomplishing DIY-projects you also need to acquire a tacit knowledge residing in your body. This tension or cooperation between hands, tools and brain seems to be more evident in manual work than in writing. Another difference is that in DIY there are ready-made answers. While building, for example a wood shed, mostly is a linear process where you pretty well in advance know the result, writing can take you almost anywhere. But in the end, switching between these activities, using different tools and senses, has integrated them with each other in everyday life as repeated struggles to create something valid.

    Abstract [en]

    The Averted Woman – Subjectivity in Interpretations of Pictures

    Having collected seventy-six photographs and paintings of women seen from behind the author is reflecting on the meaning of this motive. Why have the photographers and the painters, mostly men from four centuries, chosen to represent the women by their backs? Are the women just (secretly) observed from behind, or are they actively turning away from the gaze of the onlooker? The author decides for the second interpretation and makes a connection to experiences of averted women in his own childhood and marriages. The conclusive question is: How subjective may a cultural researcher be doing reflexive interpretations?

    Doing-it-yourself: autoethnography of manual work2011In: Ethnologia Europaea, ISSN 0425-4597, E-ISSN 1604-3030, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 53-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Autoethnography is a method for cultural research where you are using your own experiences, as a starting point or as examples of more general conditions. You are both the subject and the object of observation. Recently I tried this method in a Do-It-Yourself project, writing field-notes while working as a home fixer with hammer, screw driver and other tools. I found it to be rather tricky to describe manual work with regard to both body and mind. I also reflected on some differences and similarities between writing and DIY. The purpose of self-narrative experiments like this is to improve fieldwork and cultural analysis. By practicing autoethnography you may learn more about the research process and become more conscious of what is going on when you are doing observations and interpreting them.

    Problemlösare och avslöjare - om kulturanalytikerns dubbla uppdrag2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    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.

    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.
