    ”Forget your sickness and dance”: En etnologisk studie om mötet med den medicinska föreställningsvärlden och musikens roll i en läkande process.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    “Dance and forget your sickness” - An ethnological study of the interaction between patients and the medical conceptual world, and the role of music in a healing process.

    This study is based on interviews with four people. It describes their experiences with the health care system and the role of music in their lives. What these people have in common is that their illnesses are not verifiable from a normal medical perspective. The overall purpose is to describe this interaction with medical care and discuss what role music might have in the mitigation of the perceived illness.

    The patient-healthcare interaction is analysed from a theoretical discourse perspective. The analysis reveals some of the mechanisms in the medical establishment’s discourse that reinforce its own conclusions by simplifying what is actually quite complex; the inner world of the patient.

    Considering the powerful position medical science has taken in our modern world it is relevant for medicine to be able to respond to and manage health problems arising in complex personal processes, or what can be described as existential illness. This study describes how the current healthcare establishment has come to focus unilaterally on physical health, supplanting the existential dimension of health that it cannot respond to.

    The results of this study showed that all people experienced that (current established) healthcare alone could not cure their illness in a satisfactory manner. The study also showed that music played a major role in the relief of specific symptoms. Music also helped patients find meaning, despite their illness, as part of a greater cultural and social world.

    Abstract

     

    “Dance and forget your sickness” - An ethnological study of the interaction between patients and the medical conceptual world, and the role of music in a healing process.

         This study is based on interviews with four people. It describes their experiences with the health care system and the role of music in their lives. What these people have in common is that their illnesses are not verifiable from a normal medical perspective. The overall purpose is to describe this interaction with medical care and discuss what role music might have in the mitigation of the perceived illness.

         The patient-healthcare interaction is analysed from a theoretical discourse perspective. The analysis reveals some of the mechanisms in the medical establishment’s discourse that reinforce its own conclusions by simplifying what is actually quite complex; the inner world of the patient.

        Considering the powerful position medical science has taken in our modern world it is relevant for medicine to be able to respond to and manage health problems arising in complex personal processes, or what can be described as existential illness. This study describes how the current healthcare establishment has come to focus unilaterally on physical health, supplanting the existential dimension of health that it cannot respond to.

          The results of this study showed that all people experienced that (current established) healthcare alone could not cure their illness in a satisfactory manner. The study also showed that music played a major role in the relief of specific symptoms. Music also helped patients find meaning, despite their illness, as part of a greater cultural and social world.

    Kropp och musik: En etnologisk studie om psykisk ohälsa och musikens betydelse i vardagsmedicinsk praktik2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is based on eight interviews with six people. What these people have in common is that their illnesses are not verifiable from a normal medical perspective.

    The overall purpose of this study is to generally investigate the importance of music in everyday medical contexts, and specifically study how people with illness relate to their bodies, both in the encounter with standard medical care and with the use of music.

    The primary philosophical inspiration comes from Maurice Merleau-Ponty, while the theory owes much to phenomenology. The descriptions of subjects’ interaction with the healthcare system is also analysed from the perspective of discourse theory.

    The study shows that music ought to be understood holistically; a complex interplay between subject, object and context.

    When patients are treated in the established healthcare, they must consciously adjust their body with makeup, clothing, tone of voice, and gesture in order to be trusted. This leads to the embodiment of the idea of disease, which makes them feel even worse.

    The study also shows how music, when it’s chosen and enjoyed can actualize our healthy aspects. The use of music as self-treatment cultivates health-promoting habits which expand our worlds, and can thereby mitigate the illness we experience

    Erla Husgafvel, österbottnisk folklorist i två länder: närvarons problematik, nostalgins förförelse, exilens vemod2014In: Budkavlen, ISSN 0302-2447, Vol. 93, no 1, p. 86-100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Erla Hovilainen-Husgafvel was born (Lund) in Gamlakarleby/Kokkola in 1907, moved with her family to Vasa/Vaasa while a child, and from there, in her teens, to Åbo/Turku where she attended Åbo svenska samskola. She graduated from Åbo Akademi in 1928 with a master's degree in ethnology ('folklore'), with Professor Gabriel Nikander as her supervisor. During the 1930s she participated in in all eleven ethnological expeditions in Ostrobothnia and Estland and also started her career as a multifaceted writer with its genesis in her fieldwork. Her academic work would terminate (more or less) by the time of her and her husband's emigration to Sweden (via Denmark) in 1946. She died in 1984 at Mariannelund, Småland, in southern Sweden.

    The chapter is structured along the three theoretical practices of bibliography, biography, and intellectual history. I have organized Husgafvel's written works chronologically (her newspaper articles written in Sweden appear separately). The bibliographical list of works serves also as tool to identify their generic affiliations (from the field work notes to the chronicle, the essay, the comedy, the radio program, the book/documentary) and their roles in her unconventional ethnological writing. The chapter features stations (personal and structural) in her life that were central for her intellectual formation: her family background, the Finnish wars, patriarchal academic patterns, and the strength/weakness of being alienated/in exile, as woman/ working class poor/ Ostrobothnian 'witch'. I associate the biographical perspective with that of intellectual history in order to understand or problematize three overlapping areas that possessed Husgafvel: 1. rebellion or assimilation, countryside conservatism, nationalism, transgression; 2. the myths about the Ostrobothnian community (the village) as an Edenic reservoir of knowledge; 3. the ideological melancholia of (e/im)migration.

    My intention is to introduce a relatively unknown Finland-Swedish ethnologist and to tell a story about a remarkable person who emigrated but never moved.

    Utopi i krigets skugga: Erla Hovilainen i ett österbottniskt fiskesamhälle2013In: Horisont, ISSN 0439-5530, Vol. 60, no 4, p. 6-12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Erla Hovilainen-Husgafvel (b. Lund), a Finland-Swede ethnologist (1907-1984) returned in June-July 1944 to the small fishing community of Tankar, an island in the outer archipelago off the city of Kokkola/Karleby, after many previous visits there, to finish the research for her book Ro, ro till fiskeskär ('Row, Row to the Fishermen's Island') that appeared the next year. Her documentary consists of two parts: the history of fishing on the island with the eighteenth-century wooden church and the lighthouse as its major narrative icons, and her interviews with three fishermen and their family members. Although the country is at war, it is only indirectly present in her account. I read Hovilainen's chronicle as an allegory of an ideal utopian world, where the politics is at the hands of the people, where pragmatism overrules both religious and secular conventions, where language is free from hierarchical structures. Hovilainen, I explain, transliterates the speech forms of her informants into distinct personal voices. It is an allegory of a community that should exist.

    Digital Health and the Embodying of Professionalism: Avatars as Health Professionals in Sweden2019In: Professions & Professionalism, ISSN 1893-1049, E-ISSN 1893-1049, Vol. 9, no 1, article id e2847Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores virtual health professionals (VHPs), digital health technology software, in Swedish health care. The aim is to analyze how health professionalismis (re)negotiated through avatar embodiments of VHPs and to explore the informants’ notions of what a health professional is, behaves and looks like. The paper builds on ethnographic fieldwork with informants working directly or indirectly with questions of digital health technology and professionalism. Discourse theory is used to analyze the material. Subjectification, authenticity, and diversity were found to be crucial for informants to articulate health professionalism when discussing human avatars, professional attire, gendered and ethnified embodiments. The informants attempted to make the VHPs credibly professional but inauthentcally human. A discursive struggle over health professionalism between patient choice and diversity within health care was identified where the patient’s choice of avatars—if based on prejudices—might threaten healthcare professionalism and healthcare professionals by (re)producing racism and sexism.

    Negotiating humanity: anthropomorphic robots in the Swedish television series Real Humans2018In: Science Fiction Film and Television, ISSN 1754-3770, E-ISSN 1754-3789, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 449-467Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I analyse the renegotiations and re-establishments of borders between humans and hubots (humanoid robots) in the Swedish sf television series Akta manniskor (Real Humans) through the concepts of trans-corporeality and recyclability, where the concept of being 'recyclable' prompts questions of life and death. The use of anthropomorphism and the recyclability of the characters paradoxically articulates sameness while referring to differences, and it suggests that humans and hubots are entangled and always composed, decomposed and recomposed by, and into, other bodies. This might have practical implications for modern society in terms of ethics and rights for anthropomorphic robots.

    Value Patterns in Four Dimensions among the Indigenous Sami Population in Norway: A Population-Based Survey2016In: Journal of Northern Studies, ISSN 1654-5915, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 39-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: This is a population-based study that explores and describes a set of personal values in indigenous Sami and non-Sami adults in Norway. Norway ratified the ILO convention no. 169 concerning indigenous and tribal peoples in independent countries in 1990. In accordance with the convention the integrity of the indigenous culture and values shall be respected. Our aim is to describe and explore value patterns among Sami and Norwegian populations.

    Method: Cross-sectional questionnaire. From 24 local authorities, a total of 12,623 subjects between the ages of 36 and 79 were included in the analysis. The survey instrument consisted of a 19-item questionnaire of personal values and the analysis was based on responses from 10,268 ethnic Norwegian (just 6 questions were asked to them) and 2,355 Sami participants (1,531 Sami and 824 mixed Sami/ethnic Norwegian participants).

    Results: From the 19 values, Sami respondents held the following five personal values in the highest regard: being in touch with nature; harnessing nature through fishing, hunting and berry-picking; preserving ancestral and family traditions; preserving traditional Sami industries and preserving and developing the Sami language. On the other hand, Sami respondents’ least important values included modern Sami art and the Sami Parliament (Sametinget). The ethnic Norwegians also held being in touch with nature as a very important value. Sami reported significantly higher scores for experience of ethnic discrimination and fear of losing their work/trade than ethnic Norwegians. The last 13 questions were just asked to Sami and mixed-Sami respondents. According to those questions four dimensions associated with personal values were identified among the indigenous Sami population: “Traditional Sami Values,” “Modern Sami Values,” “Contact with Nature” and “Feeling of Marginalisation.” Traditional and modern Sami values were both characterised by significantly higher scores among females, the lowest age bracket and those who considered themselves Sami. Within the Traditional Sami Values dimension, higher scores were also recorded in participants who were married or cohabiting, living in majority Sami areas, satisfied with “way of life” and members of the Læstadian Church. The Modern Sami Values dimension showed higher scores among participants with high household incomes. The Contact with Nature dimension had significantly higher proportions of Sami, married or cohabitants, and participants content with their way of life; age, geographical area and household income were found to be insignificant variables within this dimension. Feeling of Marginalisation was characterised by significantly greater proportions of males, individuals of working age, residence in Norwegian-dominated areas, self-perceived Sami ethnicity, low household income, poorer self-reported health and dissatisfaction with way of life.

    Conclusion: Four distinct value patterns and relationships to well-being and self-reported health were identified in the indigenous Sami population. The four dimensions reflect important aspects of present-day Sami society.

    YouTube as a performative arena: how Swedish youth are negotiating space, community membership, and gender identities through the art of parkour2011In: Youth culture and net culture: online social practices / [ed] Drs. Elza Dunkels, Gun-Marie Frånberg and Camilla Hällgren, IGI Global , 2011Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The YouTube video sharing site is used by huge numbers of young people in the roles of consumers as well as producers of content and meaning. The site hosts an extremely large amount of video clips, and its users represent a wide variety of nationalities, religions, ethnic backgrounds, identities and lifestyles. These facts make it hard to see how a tangible sense of actual community could be created within the site. Using on- and offline ethnographic data in the form of footage, interviews and patterns of community interaction (favoriting, subscribing, commenting, rating, and video replies), this chapter presents the results of a case study that aims to analyze how a specific interest group with a certain national anchoring (Swedish parkour youth) deal with the vastness and complexity of YouTube in creating a sense of identity and community in relation to their specialized interest.

    Framing post-pandemic preparedness: comparing eight European plans2018In: Global Public Health, ISSN 1744-1692, E-ISSN 1744-1706, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 99-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Framing has previously been studied in the field of pandemic preparedness and global health governance and influenza pandemics have usually been framed in terms of security and evidence-based medicine on a global scale. This paper is based on the pandemic preparedness plans, published after 2009, from eight European countries. We study how pandemic preparedness is framed and how pandemic influenza in general is narrated in the plans. All plans contain references to ‘uncertainty’, ‘pandemic phases’, ‘risk management’, ‘vulnerability’ and ‘surveillance’. These themes were all framed differently in the studied plans. The preparedness plans in the member states diverge in ways that will challenge the ambition of the European Union to make the pandemic preparedness plans interoperable and to co-ordinate the member states during future pandemics.

    Abstract [en]

    Writing ethnography involves retelling a story and carrying the voices of others in order to describe and explain a cultural phenomenon. This article argues that the ethnographer cannot write in such a close manner without great difficulties when today's search engines operate with unprecedented vigour. Tracing a text string using Google takes less than a second and this has great implications for the ability to provide quotations if the researcher is to follow ethical guidelines to protect and to keep their informants anonymous. Further, this article discusses ethical implications involved in online studies of blogs where the content is of a sensitive and private nature. To undertake such research while showing respect for the informant is a challenging task, given the researchers need to adhere to the key issues in research ethics. This article specifically problematizes the ethics of informed consent and confidentiality as it provides a particular challenge for the researcher engaged in studies of affective online sharing.

    Typographic Man: Medielandskap i förändring - Studier i provinsens tryckkultur2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present thesis is to study how the media landscape of northern Sweden was shaped and transformed in the final years of the 18th century and first half of the nineteenth. This slowly-emerging new landscape brought with it new thoughts and new voices. Which individuals and institutions were involved in this process?

    Proceeding from a number of hypotheses and a variety of perspectives, the intention has been to study the type of printed matter being physically disseminated,how it came to be used and in what context by what people. The questions are in many ways interwoven and can be followed from chapter to chapter.

    The title of the dissertation underlines the fact that the media landscape under investigation is in fact populated. Through gradual changes in the media landscape, the people of the province became ”typographic”, i.e. dependent onprinted matter.

    The interdisciplinary nature of this dissertation, embracing media history,book history, ethnology, communications and cultural history, leaves ample room for aspects and inspiration culled from a broad variety of sources. By embarking from concepts including mediascape, province, print culture, networks,voluntary associations and various manifestations of reading culture, it has been possible to sketch the outlines of the development and dynamism of the media landscape during the period under investigation.

    A region long considered to be a remote outpost was in fact at the begin-ning of the nineteenth century well on its way to making its voice heard more clearly in the national conversation. Contacts and connection within the province also changed character as new forms of conversation emerged. Those which previously had been conducted in church, at the barbershop, in the market square or in the reading societies were now being conducted in locally-produced newspapers and pamphlets. The means of communication had changed. A new age needed to be dealt with and discussed, and that discussion could now take place in print.

    Å bli vaksinert, eller ikke å bli vaksinert, er det (det eneste) spørsmålet?: Norske holdninger til vaksinasjon og svineinfluensa-pandemien i 2009 til 20102018In: Tidsskrift for kulturforskning, ISSN 1502-7473, E-ISSN 2387-6727, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 73-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I examine Norwegian lay people’s attitudes towards vaccination with the 2009–2010 swine flu pandemic as a case study. During the pandemic the Norwegian public health authorities recommended mass vaccination as a main strategy for preventing infection. Vaccination is at present voluntary in Norway, but almost 45 per cent of the population were vaccinated against swine flu, including 600 000 children. 70 of these children have since developed narcolepsy as a side effect of the swine flu vaccine Pandemrix. Although these cases appear to have had little effect on the vaccine uptake in the public vaccination program which continues to remain high, many Norwegians still express scepticism to new vaccines. By drawing on a rather heated mediatized debate between so-called vaccine supporters- and opponents in 2015, 196 responses to a qualitative questionnaire and interviews with 17 public health stakeholders, the article focuses on lay people’s own thoughts regarding whether to vaccinate or not. In most cases, such reasoning can neither be described as being supportive of nor opposed to vaccination, but rather something in-between, depending on the vaccine in question.

    Att skapa sig själv genom psykiatrin: ett etnologiskt perspektiv på självskadares identitetskonstruktioner2011In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 88, no 3, p. 240-248Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is about the production of meaning and identity in relation to self-harm. It focuses on the ways in which online self-harm communities are created and used, as well as on the categorisations and distinctions inherent in the construction of community. The critical framing of psychiatry, strongly normative in this context, is of particular interest here. It is suggested that such a construction of psychiatry should be understood as a means for constructing identity and for strengthening the sense of community on online message boards.

    Abstract [sv]

    Sociala medier kan innebära nya möjligheter för psykiatriska patienter att föra fram sina perspektiv. I denna artikel analyseras ett svenskt bloggforum där patienter förenas i kampen för en bättre psykiatrivård. Syftet är att undersöka hur bloggmediet kan användas för att utmana och/eller reproducera normer och maktförhållanden i relationen mellan patient och psykiatri.

    Självskada: En etnologisk studie av mening och identitet i berättelser om skärande2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral thesis is about people who write about their self-harm on Internet message boards. The aim of the study is to understand how meaning is produced in relation to self-harm, and how this involves particular constructions of self-harmer identity. The empirical material consists of written dialogues from seven Swedish message boards, as well as interviews with their members and a selection of published texts. This body of material is analysed using a poststructuralist discourse theoretical approach.

    In order to outline a context for the study, the thesis traces the constitution of self-harm in Swedish public debate since the 1990s. It is suggested that several discourses interact when cutting is represented in media, literature and governmental reports. Most noticeable, a psychiatric discourse, a dystopian discourse of contemporary society, a discourse of alternative youth culture, and a discourse of vulnerable girls are drawn on here.

    These discourses are regarded as resources for the production of meaning and the acts of identification in message board discussions and interviews. The analysis of this material is concerned with four empirical themes: the practice of cutting; the importance of talking as cure; distinctions between authentic and inauthentic cutters; and the paradoxical and antagonistic relationship between self-harming patients and psychiatry. Issues of normality/deviance and victimhood/agency are of great importance throughout the thesis, as the informants constantly negotiate these dichotomies.

    The thesis demonstrates that cutting is framed on the one hand as a deliberate strategy for managing emotions and demonstrating self-control, and on the other hand as the ultimate sign of helplessness, self-hatred and lack of control. Although the informants have different reasons for cutting, their diverse accounts and approaches are linked together on the message boards through their shared identification with the position of ‘feeling bad’.

    The thesis further argues that cutter identity in this empirical material is defined through the construction of different constitutive outsides or ‘enemies’. On the one hand, cutters who ‘feel bad’ are posited against less ‘real’ or authentic ones. On the other hand, cutters are also posited against psychiatry and psychiatric care staff. Psychiatry is constituted in particularly contradictory ways and the informants tend to vacillate between the positions of autonomous, rebellious patient and docile victim of disease. I argue that this can be seen as ways of dealing with certain problematics inherent in the asymmetrical power relationship between patient and psychiatry, at the same time as the construction of psychiatry as an antagonist is also essential for the assertion of solidarity and mutual support on the message boards.
