    Ridiculing suffering on YouTube: digital parodies of emo style2016In: Blunt traumas: negotiating suffering and death / [ed] Nate Hinerman, Holly Lynn Baumgartner, Oxford: Inter-Disciplinary Press , 2016, p. 31-40Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Numerous YouTube videos represent and comment on self-injury, as evidenced by a search for this term, which produces about 123,000 results (6 June 2014). In previous studies, we have explored how suffering, the body, and gender are performed in such personal videos. During our YouTube study, we have also encountered a specific category of video clips that merits further discussion: videos that in different ways attempt to parody or make fun of self-injury and mental distress. What most of them have in common is that they focus on self-injury as part of the so-called emo subculture or emo style. The purpose of this chapter is to discuss what such videos tell us about cultural conceptions of suffering and gender. Our analysis builds on a small sample of three YouTube videos in which emo culture and mental distress are parodied and ridiculed through exaggeration. We demonstrate that the parodies revolve around two main points: emo as a stylised performance of suffering, and emo as queer masculinity. The chapter concludes by suggesting that this ridiculing of emo culture builds upon discourses of hegemonic masculinity and normative heterosexuality which are also likely to have consequences for the understanding of mental suffering, emotional sensitivity, and gender in a broader context.

    Raedienaehtjie eller Gud Fader? En studie av religionsskiftet i Sápmi med utgångspunkt i trolldomsrannsakningarna i Lappmarken 1649-17392007Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By the year 1100 Sweden was christianized, but the Sámi indigenous religion persisted among the Sámi people up until the mid 18th century. Up to the 17th century the efforts to convert the Sámi to Christianity was fairly weak, but increased pressure came after the protestant reformation. Death sentences could now be carried out for practicing the old religion. In this essay I have examined court protocols from trials regarding Sámi witchcraft, superstition and heresy during the period 1649-1739. I have analyzed the protocols in order to get a better understanding of how the religious change in this area came about, and how the Sámi people themselves regarded their crimes and their religious belief. I have also tried to find out how deeply rooted Christianity really was within in the Sámi community and in the Sámi area (Sápmi) during this period. It is commonly believed, that it was mainly the Sámi shaman (the noaide) who was charged and sentenced in these witchcraft trials and I have examined whether or not this really was the case by looking for common denominators and characteristics among the people on trial.

    By using a qualitative hermeneutical method in analyzing these documents I have learned that Christianity was not very deeply rooted in the Sámi community during this period and it is clear that it was in the southern parts of Sápmi that the old religion persisted the longest. I have also come to the conclusion, that the Swedish church was fairly tolerant towards the Sámi practising the old religion up to the year 1689, when the policy changed prominently. As for common denominators, the accused are all male and none of them are referred to as a noaide in the protocols. It is in this discovery I claim to bring something new to this subject field.

    Tyskar i Kalmartrakten: En etnologisk studie av berättelser om historia, identitet och tillhörighet2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The study deals with the life stories of six women and four men who were born in Germany and who now live in Sweden.  Its purpose is to examine the histories of those who grew up in Germany during and after the Nazi era, their descriptions of their lives and experiences during childhood and adolescence, and how they regard their encounters with Swedish people, and the ways in which these encounters have affected their ways of describing the growth of their attachment to this country. The main approach is a narrative analysis focussing on the interview interaction and the wider social and political contexts of their life stories.

    When speaking of their lives in the two countries they show varying degrees of attachment to the places involved. This is why I use the term “travellers” when describing how their feelings of “belonging” change.

    The theoretical concepts used are those of habitus and capitals derived from Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of practice, and Marianne Horsdal’s view that people often refer to the idea of a “good life” when relating their life stories. This concept can of course vary widely from one person to another. Nine of the group emigrated to Sweden voluntarily; the remaining one came here as a refugee after the end of the second World War.  The older ones - born between 1920 and 1940 - have memories of their early years in Nazi Germany and of the wartime period. The younger ones, born after 1950, have differing memories of childhood and adolescence spent in East and West Germany. Some of them lost close relatives during the war.  Those who came to Sweden during the late 1940s and the 1950s were met with very negative attitudes from some Swedes, while the later immigrants were treated with respect.

    The Fleeting Sense of Smell (Den undflyende lukten)

    This is an overview of the elusive sense of smell, both from a historical/cultural and psychological perspective. We follow two themes. In the first, we describe the repeated efforts to understand and categorize human olfaction, from antiquity to present day. We disseminate how smell has been positioned in sensory hierarchies, describe odor classifications systems and discuss differing views on the relationship between odor and health. The second theme regards how odors and the sense

    itself has been used as a means for understanding, separating and classifying other phenomena. Odors have throughout history been used to de- marcate class boundaries; the (non-)reliance of the sense of smell has been seen as an indication of civilization. Olfactory acuity is used to separate humans from animals, women from men, and young from old. These smell-based taxonomies persist, despite having no clear backing from em- pirical evidence. Finally, we suggest that the inter- est in smell may be on the rise, both from a societal and scientific perspective.

    Why Look at Cabin Porn?2015In: Public culture, ISSN 0899-2363, E-ISSN 1527-8018, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 557-578Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The rise of cabin porn—images of beautiful cabins in nature—as a visual genre reflects a growing international interest in cabins, shedworking, and rustic, exurban living off the grid, most of it romanticizing rural and low-tech lifestyles. On the surface, the digitally mediated and disembodied architecture of cabin porn seems to be a form of nostalgia, where the dream of the cabin becomes an arena for resolving an ambivalent relationship to technology and all the bothersome things of modern life. Delving deeper into the cabin porn phenomenon, however, can also reveal something about the mediated experience of nature through digital media.

    Abstract [no]

    I denne artikkelen vil vi gi et innblikk i noen av disse livene gjennom fiktive pasienthistorier basert på våre erfaringer med migrerte kvinner vi møter på Pro Sentret, en «drop in»-klinikk for personer som selger seksuelle tjenester i Oslo.

    Prostitusjonsmarkedet har det siste tiåret vært i stor forandring. Personene som brukte Pro Sentrets tilbud tidligere, var i hovedsak norske kvinner med rusproblematikk, men siden tidlig på 2000-tallet har antallet migrerte kvinner vokst eksplosjonsartet (1 – 3). I 2014 hadde 90 % av våre pasienter annen opprinnelse enn norsk (1). Denne forholdsvis raske forandringen har ført til at vi har tilpasset våre helsetjenester – for på best mulig måte å imøtekomme de særskilte behovene denne gruppen har. En utfordring i møtet med denne pasientgruppen finnes selvfølgelig i språket. Ofte har pasientene dårlige ferdigheter i både norsk og engelsk, og grunnet uforutsigbarheten – pasientene benytter seg vanligvis ikke av timebestilling – er det vanskelig å ha en tolk til stede. Vi er derfor mange ganger henvist til å bruke mimikk og kroppsspråk for å kommunisere. En større utfordring befinner seg i den sosiokulturelle sfæren, og det er fremfor alt den vi kommer til å berøre i denne artikkelen.

    EEG responses to shamanic drumming. Does suggestion of trance state mediate the strength of frequency components?2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    One of the techniques used to induce trance state in shamanic ceremonies is monotonous drumming. According to previous EEG research, certain patterns of drumming cause an increase in power of alpha and theta frequencies of the listener. Present study aimed to determine, if suggestion to experience trance state could increase the relative alpha and theta amplitude and the intensity of experienced state. A group of twenty-four subjects participated in the study. Suggestion to experience trance state decreased alpha frequency power during the drumming condition. No other significant effects of suggestion or drumming were found.

    Rennomadismens dilemma: det rennomadiska samhällets förändring i Tuorpon och Sirkas 1760-18601989Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The areas of study for this dissertation are the Turopon and Sirkas lappbyar (communities) in the parish of Jokkmokk during the period 1760—1860. The starting point for discussion is a decrease in population through migration to Norway, from 667 inhabitants in 1781, to 353 in 1868. The primary cause was the ecological instability of reindeer herding with recurring crises caused by poor grazing, adverse snow conditions, epizootics, and predators. The stability in reindeer herding is finally determined by the numbers of grazing animals and the carrying capacities of the pastures. A disturbance in the balance between people and animals could occur if competition from the settlers limited available pastures, or the government through taxes appropriated so much of the surplus that the subsistence level was markedly increased. A closer examination reveals, however, that no outside influences can be indicated as being responsible for the population decline.

    Attention must thus be directed toward the inner social processes of this pastoralist society. While the reindeer herding population diminished, the total number of reindeer remained on a relatively constant level. The resulting process of accumulation consolidated the reindeer into the hands of fewer owners. While these conclusions indicate an economically differentiated society, the marriage pattern shows that the social distance between the economic groupings was very small.

    By promoting economic differentiation, trade had an important potential as agent of social stratification. This potential was, however, not fully realized. The equalizing factors were stronger than the differentiating forces.

    Preparations Before the Last Journey

    This essay is dealing with how to prepare yourself to your own death and the starting point of the discussion is the author´s self-narration. The research perspective is inspired by discursive psychology where no clear distinction is made between emotion “discourse” and emotions “them-selves”.

    Elderly Sami – symbols of Sami identity?: The role of elderly in the Sami community2010In: Ethnologia Scandinavica, ISSN 0348-9698, E-ISSN 0348-9698, Vol. 40, p. 27-42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article is about the role of the elderly Sami in the Swedish Sami community and it is based om deep-interviews. To sum up you can find two dominating creative strategies among the elderly Sami of today in my material, strategies which strives to achieve feelings of inclusion and life consistency, to feel substantiated and valuable and to be as independent as possible. One strategy, which is practised by the elderly who still live among their relatives in the Sami village, is to be as active as possible and as long as possible in the reindeer herding. The reindeer herding is a way of life which symbolizes the good life. Another strategy, which is available for the elderly living in a larger village or in the city, is to take on the role as creator of Sami identity for the younger generation. The re-establishment of the Sami gives a sense of meaning and continuity and creates a common bond to the younger Sami who are searching for their roots.

    Abstract [en]

    There are different discourses concerning women and ageing in the media and within the field of research about elderly people. In the public discourse elderly women are often associated with depression, poverty and weak health. The popular culture, with its worshipping attitude towards the young, has a great influence on the cultural conceptions of female ageing. At the same time new images of elderly women as desirable and attractive are presented in popular media. These images kan be understood as expressions for re-negotiations of what ageing means, but also as age-denying since it is the youtfullness among the elderly which is emphasised as something positive. Many researchers stress the importance of separating the public discourse on ageing, which is found in the media, from the women’s own experiences of ageing. Interview studies with elderly women have shown that women’s experiences of ageing can appear in a number of different ways depending on life context. This theme issue poses questions on ageing and femininity from a number of stand points by comparing the medial and public discourses with the women’s own experiences of ageing.

    Abstract [en]

    The investigation concerns childrearing among settlers in the northern part of Sweden between 1850-1920. What were the attitudes of the adults towards children and what ideals were there for children's behaviour? By investigating childrearing I also intended to find which general values and norms there were in the settlers' society. When answering these questions it has turned out that the relationship between discourse, ideal norm and practice is of central importance. The source material has been taken mainly from ethnological archives. The specific elements in the settlers' way of bringing up children will be clear from a comparison with other methods from different times and different social systems. I have found it productive to refer to the discussion regarding various theories on the history of civilisation. The problems of historical translation constitute a central methodological issue in the comparison between different ways of bringing up children. I have tried to dissociate myself from the analysis of childrearing in different times which can be found in the thoughts of Philippe Aries and Norbert Elias. Michel Foucault represents a more unprejudiced history of civilisation and his thoughts about an older and a younger form of steering mechanism have turned out to be applicable in the case of historical change in the discourse and practise of childrearing. The childhood of the settlers' children can be divided into two separate periods; the liberal period of the child's first two or three years, and the time when discipline began. During the first period the child was entitled to have all its needs fulfilled. At the age of four or five a more rigorous discipline began. Flogging and fright were used and the purpose was to make the child obedient, humble and willing to work. Adults could openly express tenderness and kiss and fondle the infants. It is more difficult to interpret the language of tenderness where the older children are concerned, since adults did not express their feelings for them in words or gestures. The way the adults related to the children reveals, however, an attitude which deviates from the ideas of the Old Testament. This attitude, which existed on the level of practise, meant loving playfulness and respect. Discipline was used to teach the children proper behaviour in all areas of life, e.g. the social life with all its strict rules of etiquette. The difficulty in discovering the discipline which existed in the settlers' society, is linked to the fact that their idea of proper behaviour did not always correspond with the ideas of the middle class. The settlers taught their children to control their spontaneous feelings of distaste for dirt and uncleanliness. To openly demonstrate warm feelings for other people was also discouraged. By expressing feelings of shame, the children were taught to discipline their sexuality. Training in humbleness was also a training for life. Children who were in service had to learn the manners and the landless people were outside the reciprocity in the' settlers' society.

    Strategies of decolonisation: portraits of elderly female pioneers in the Sami ethno-political movement2015In: Ageing: culture and identity / [ed] Lena Karlsson, Marianne Liliequist, Anna Sofia Lundgren, Karin Lövgren & Angelika Sjöstedt Landén, Umeå: Umeå University , 2015, p. 39-63Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is about elderly Sami women who are front figures in the ethno-political mobilisation movement, acting from artistic platforms or in traditional political arenas. The Sami culture has been described as male-dominated and Sami women as dually oppressed, belonging to a minority people while also being women, but there are many Sami women, especially the elderly, who in recent decades have emerged as prominent figures in the fight for the survival of Sami culture. How do these prominent figures describe their own position and status? What strategies do they use, as elderly Sami women, to enter the Sami and non-Sami public spheres? How do they tell their story, what is it that motivates them, what obstacles have they faced and what has helped them? This chapter conducts an intersectional analysis on an individual level of the strategic approaches of three women. I have looked at the way these strategies emerge in the women's life stories. Depending on special circumstances, either currently or earlier in their life, ethnicity, gender, age and class are emphasized to various degrees in the different narratives.

    Elderly women in a sparsely populated mountain area – victims in the periphery or central figures?

    This study, based on participant observations and interviews, concerns  the present situation of the elderly women in Frostviken, a sparsely populated mountain-area in the  north of Sweden. What resources do these women have in order to achieve life-quality? Elderly women living in this part of the country is often described as victims in the periphery. In my study the elderly women have a central role in their community and in their net-work of relatives. They have high status because they stand out as symbols of the regional identity of Frostviken.  The widdows who chooses to stay at the farms after their husbands has passed away, are resources to their families and relatives. The farm with all it´s assets – for example the built-up week-end cottages, the hunting- and fishing licences connected to the farm and the roots way back to the culture of the first settlers – is central to the ideal of life in Frostviken. As the owner of the farm the elderly women exists in the middle of a large network of relatives who comes visiting from time to time. Her role as a story-teller with great knowledge of local- and family history further promotes her central position.

    Elderly Sami as the "Other": Discourses on the Elderly Care of the Sami, 1850–19302011In: Journal of Northern Studies, ISSN 1654-5915, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 9-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the authors have examined images of elderly Sami in relation to elderly care in Sweden between the years 1850 and 1930. What discourses can be revealed from spoken statements, written documents and every-day practices? This study has shown that the higher the degree of closeness and mutual exchange between Sami and non-Sami, the more the image of the "Other" as something "foreign" has been challenged and rejected. To be able to one-sidedly distance oneself from other people and turn them into stereotypes requires a certain amount of emotional and geographic distance. Where there has been physical distance and a lack of mutually beneficial exchange, the elderly Sami are more often described as "foreign," "threatening" and "deviant," a force of nature that must be tamed and controlled. The Sami dismissed as "not-quite-human" in the popular discourse were the paupers among them. A more balanced relationship existed between the Sami and the settlers in the mountains and the elderly Sami were often described as "one of the family." The staffs of the Sami old-age homes were far more nuanced in their view of the elderly than the civil servants sent from Stockholm to report back on the Sami.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses what it means to be an ageing female artist in the male dominated world of rock music. Our material consists of gig reviews and interviews. The ageing woman appears like an anomaly because she can no longer fulfill the role of the sex object. Patti Smith seems to be an exception to the rule and that is, among other things, because of her androgynous image.

    "Gränsbygdens folk": glesbygdens självbilder - en jämförelse mellan Lierne i Norge och Frostviken i Sverige2017In: Brännpunkt Norrland: perspektiv på en region i förändring / [ed] Anders Öhman & Bo Nilsson, Umeå: Bokförlaget h:ström - Text & Kultur, 2017, p. 236-262Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kapitlet behandlar lokal och regional identitet i gränstrakterna mellan Frostviken i nordvästra Jämtland och Lierne i Tröndelag, Norge. Med hjälp av djupintervjuer, deltagande observation och autoetnografisk metod urskiljer författarna kollektiva berättelser  med anknytning till lokal och regional identitet på vardera sidan om nationsgränsen. I Lierne finns en positiv syn på den egna kulturen och en stark identifikation med bygden. Frostviksbornas självbild är också positiv, men har påverkats i negativ riktning av den svenska offentliga urbana diskursen.

    Orsak: Våldtäkt: om våldtagna män i medicinsk praktik2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Within the Swedish healthcare system, the care of raped men varies and many hospitals lack specific programmes. The aim of the thesis is to describe and analyse how meanings about rape and raped men are produced within Swedish healthcare. The central question is how different patient positions and conceptions about the phenomenon of male rape are created through care practices and how, in turn, that affects the care of raped men.

    The empirical material consists of interviews with healthcare professionals who have worked with raped men, field notes from participant observations and materials such as legislation, care protocols and medical records. In order to analyse how rape and raped men are articulated in practice and to highlight the norms that govern health- and rape care, the material has been analysed from a poststructuralist ‘logics’ perspective.

    The analysis departs from a number of healthcare settings – two emergency departments, one gynaecological department, one rape clinic, one health crisis recovery unit and a regional healthcare project developing new procedures for the care of raped women, children and men – and their work with predominantly male rape.

    One of the central aspects of the thesis is that it demonstrates that the care of raped men in many places lack clear procedures and that, consequently, health professionals either draw on ill-suited general care practices or make up new ones as they go. Norms about gender, sexuality, masculinity, rape and patienthood, but also organizational aspects and aspects of professional identity, greatly influence how raped men are treated.

    In the thesis it is also suggested that rape care is governed by a ’logic of need’. The logic of need is a logic that care professionals and settings need to follow to produce good healthcare, and which emphasizes and recreates differences between how the rape of women and the rape of men are understood. At the same time there are care practices that seek to create equivalences between the rape of men and the rape of women. These alternative articulations of rape care are both in line with, and in some ways challenging, dominant rape care. In doing so they have an impact on what is considered good care for raped men.

    Above all, the logic of need enables the articulation of established notions of raped men and healthcare’s long-standing preoccupation with good corporeal healthcare. The logic constructs male rape as a specific phenomenon and organises healthcare in such ways that create sometimes unequal health conditions for male victims. The logic limits raped men’s access to certain care practices and in many cases fails to offer raped men an established patient position. This in turn seems to limit the emergence of specially adapted care for that group of patients.

    Positioning the ageing subject: articulations of choice in Swedish and UK health and social care2019In: Policy Studies, ISSN 0144-2872, E-ISSN 1470-1006, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What happens when similar measures are being introduced in different national contexts? This article studies the ways in which patient choice has been articulated in public and official reports on health care in the two contexts of Sweden and the UK, whose welfare systems are typically comprehended as different. Specific interest is directed towards the construction of patient positions, and policy documents are analyzed using discourse theory. The results show many similarities between the national contexts; choice is primarily articulated with individuality, autonomy, consumption, and responsibility, as well as with support from state agencies, and patient choice is relentlessly normalized as the way forward. But there are also important differences that reveal that the presuppositions differ, for example, when pinpointing the stakeholders of patient choice reforms and how the different policies work to take the well-known edges off of patient choice ideology.
