    Abstract [sv]

    Minoritetsspråkslagarna har stärkt de nationella minoriteternas identitet och självuppfattning. Språkens status måste dock höjas vid myndigheter och förvaltningar för att de ska bevaras. Samiska och meänkieli talas i dag mest bland äldre.

    Minoritetsspråk och myndighetskontakt: flerspråkighet bland användare av samiska, meänkieli och finska i Norrbottens län efter minoritetsspråklagarnas tillkomst 20002002Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    I undersökningen har två intervjuundersökningar gjorts med minoritetsspråksanvändare i Kiruna, Pajala och Haparande kommun. I den ena har direktintervjuer gjorts med 79 individer i de tre kommunerna. I den andra har telefonintervjuer gjorts med 42 individer som representerar föreningar och organisatoner i området, samt med 10 representatner för myndigheter.

    Språkanvändningen har undersökts på individnivå, gruppnivå och samhällsnivå med största fokus på individnivån. För att analysera hur samiska, meänkieli och finska använts i kontakter med myndigheter har ett helhetsperspektiv anlagts på språkanvändningen. Det betyder att både privata och offentliga språkdomäner undersökts. Materialet har sedan analyserats med avseende på hur de språkliga minoriteterna i området har använt sig av minoritetsspråklagarna utifrån de tre kriterierna identitet, deltagande och effektivitet.

    Syftet med studien har varit att utreda varför språkanvändarna i så liten utsträckning har använt sig av de möjligheter som lagarna innebär. En generell frågeställning är om det finns en avgörande skillnad i myndigheternas sätt att betrakta användningen av ett minoritetsspråk i offentliga och formella sammanhang, jämfört med de enskilda individernas sätt att se på minoritetsspråkets nvändning, främst då i kontakterna med olika offentliga organ.

    A Different Kind of Story Tracing the Histories and Cultural Marks of Pirate Copied Film2016Inngår i: Tecnoscienza: Italian Journal of Science & Technology Studies, ISSN 2038-3460, E-ISSN 2038-3460, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 87-108Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Pirate copied objects are fiery artifacts that have caused much anxiety and debate. This article explores the cultural biographies of one particular type of such objects; digital pirate copied films. More specifically, it traces two neglected aspects of such object's life histories: their entanglement in systems of standardization and quality control, and the ways in which new types of aesthetics and narratives are inscribed (or added to) pirated audiovisual content. Paying close attention to the layered and multifaceted dimensions of digital pirate copied film, the paper approaches the act of pirate copying as a form of transfiguration, and suggests that pirated objects are much more than plain replications. By housing a multiplicity of material identities and by carrying (and being surrounded by) alternative narratives of production, the article argues that these objects intervene, disorient, and disrupt the power dynamics of cinematic circulation and ultimately serve to queer commodity spheres.

    The editorial playlist as container technology: on Spotify and the logistical role of digital music packages2020Inngår i: Journal of Cultural Economy, ISSN 1753-0350, E-ISSN 1753-0369Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the role of editorial playlists in Spotify's streaming economy. In particular, it approaches Spotify's playlists as container technologies - i.e. technical solutions that assemble, preserve, and transport music objects and thereby uphold logistical operations within the music industry. Such an approach seeks to complement previous research concerning playlists, which has often analyzed their emotional and affective dimensions but paid less attention to how playlists enhance calculative, mathematical, and logistical retail flows within the online music economy. On the one hand, the article considers how playlists - like containers in general - materialize principles of modularization and automation in ways that enhance control and remote oversight. On the other hand, it discusses how the playlist is far from a perfected means of measurement and control, and sometimes acts as an unruly transport device. Ultimately, the article shows how the playlist format occupies an uneasy position between order and disorder within the digital music economy which has not yet been fully accounted for in the context of music-oriented media studies.

    Spotify teardown: inside the black box of streaming music2019Bok (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    An innovative investigation of the inner workings of Spotify that traces the transformation of audio files into streamed experience. Spotify provides a streaming service that has been welcomed as disrupting the world of music. Yet such disruption always comes at a price. Spotify Teardown contests the tired claim that digital culture thrives on disruption. Borrowing the notion of "teardown" from reverse-engineering processes, in this book a team of five researchers have playfully disassembled Spotify's product and the way it is commonly understood. Spotify has been hailed as the solution to illicit downloading, but it began as a partly illicit enterprise that grew out of the Swedish file-sharing community. Spotify was originally praised as an innovative digital platform but increasingly resembles a media company in need of regulation, raising questions about the ways in which such cultural content as songs, books, and films are now typically made available online. Spotify Teardown combines interviews, participant observations, and other analyses of Spotify's "front end" with experimental, covert investigations of its "back end." The authors engaged in a series of interventions, which include establishing a record label for research purposes, intercepting network traffic with packet sniffers, and web-scraping corporate materials. The authors' innovative digital methods earned them a stern letter from Spotify accusing them of violating its terms of use; the company later threatened their research funding. Thus, the book itself became an intervention into the ethics and legal frameworks of corporate behavior.

    "Keep Smiling!": Time, Functionality and Intimacy in Spotify’s Featured Playlists2017Inngår i: Cultural Analysis, ISSN 1537-7873, E-ISSN 1537-7873, Vol. 16Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    As one of the world’s largest online music providers, the streaming service Spotify has a profound capacity to shape everyday realities through digital technology. This article explores how both openness and control are embedded in Spotify’s ways of delivering recommended playlists to users. After analyzing over 500 pre-designed playlists, we argue that Spotify’s music recommendations evoke individual freedoms and flexibilities, at the same time as they prescribe normative temporalities, neoliberal subjectivities, functional approaches to music, and monetizations of intimacy. Such tensions between freedom and control speak of the dual inheritance of the digital and its potential to both liberate and constrain human action.

    The regime’s worst nightmare: the mobilisation of citizen democracy. A study of Podemos’ (aesthetic) populism and production of affect in political discourse2017Inngår i: Cultural Studies, ISSN 0950-2386, E-ISSN 1466-4348, Vol. 31, nr 4, s. 543-579Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In spite of not even being officially registered three months before the European Parliament Elections of 2014, the Spanish upstart party Podemos captured almost 8 percent of the vote, while barely nine months after its formation, in October 2014, social surveys were citing the party as the leading force in national politics. The overall purpose of this paper is to explore how Podemos’ aesthetic and its discursive strategies are being used to mobilize affect and create collective identities in the battle for political hegemony in Spain. I argue in dialogue with Laclau [2005. On populist reason. London: Verso], Errejón and Mouffe [2016. Podemos: in the name of the people. London: Lawrence & Wishart] that: (a) the articulation of a new political grammar and discursive conflicts in which the popular majority can identify themselves as subjects in opposition to an adversary ‘Other’ plays a central role in constructing ‘the people’ as a new form of political culture, especially in times of crisis whereby; (b) the notion of populism transgresses categories such as ‘oversimplification’ and/or ‘demagogy’ and can also be regarded in terms of exhibiting sensitivity to popular demands and participatory democracy. My findings show that welfare politics are not necessarily best communicated through traditional left-wing symbols, due to the left’s popular link with communism and political defeat; these having been repeatedly recounted by the media/culture industry throughout history. Indeed, many may share the idea of protecting a nation’s common social services without wanting to position themselves within a Marxist (leftist) framework. I point to the representative crisis as an affective crisis where there is a potential affective space to be filled. From here, I stress that resistance movements seem to need to learn the current media logic of conflict and recognition in order to mediate affect and produce identification.

    Beyond Deviant: Theodora as the Other in Byzantine Imperial Historiography2015Inngår i: Deviant Women: Cultural, Linguistic and Literary Approaches to Narratives of Femininity / [ed] Mäntymaki, T., Rodi-Risberg, M., Foka, A., Oxford: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2015Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Early Byzantine historiography offers two contradictory portrayals of Theodora  (Crowned Empress 427-458 CE).  Whereas in Procopius’ Wars of Justinian and Buildings she appears to be a courageous and influential empress, in his later work, Secret History, she is represented as a deviant female figure. Procopius’ narrative of Theodora is overall disapproving of her character and actions. He discusses her early years as a ‘shameless’ performer and a prostitute, brought up in the social margins of Constantinople; Similarly, during her reign, he describes her exercise of power over the palace and her subjects as cruel and violent, driven by premeditated self-interest.  In this chapter, I aim to discuss Theodora’s portrayal by Procopius as a sociologically deviant female; it is a systematic study of what the author considers to be social norm violations that are subject to social sanction. I will specifically concentrate on Theodora’s depiction as a sexually deviant young performer. I will then focus upon actions of cruelty and violence in her political and social career as an Empress.  I will show how the paradigm of Theodora, in Procopius’ Secret History, can be read as both making visible coercive social, political and religious power structures, as well as, disenfranchising femininity in early Byzantium.

    Half-Naked yet Empowered?:  Spartacus (2010-) (Ancient) Gender Equality in Contemporary Television2013Inngår i: 12th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Social Sciences, Honolulu Hawaii, 2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Spartacus is attested in several ancient sources (Plutarch, Appian, and Florus) as the leader of a rebellion against the Roman Republic (73 to 71 BC). Despite that none of Spartacus' historical representations overtly suggest that he aimed at reforming Roman society by abolishing slavery and promoting equality, he has inspired a number of intellectuals across times and cultures as a egalitarian leader. Marx, in the Manchester letter to Engels (1861), considered him a real representative of the ancient 'proletariat’ and members of the German Spartacus League, a forerunner of the Communist Party of Germany. In contemporary popular culture, the most recent reception of the tale of Spartacus is the US Television series Spartacus: Blood and 

    Sand (premiered on Starz in: 2010- followed by a late prequel and a sequel), where he is also portrayed as a just and egalitarian leader.

    In this paper, I will discuss how Spartacus (2010-) promotes social and gender equality as an ancient virtue within a contemporary context. Unlike Spartacus’ historical and other cinematic representations, women play a major role in the 2010- TV series either as slaves that join the rebellion, inspired by the egalitarian Thracian slave-leader, or wealthy Romans who oppose him. Despite incidental nudity, scenes of a sexual and violent nature, a TV MA rating for graphic violence, and strong sexual content in overexposed video stylization, I will show that female characters evolve from the older sexualized and objectified females of gladiatorial Sword and Sandals (e.g. Warrior and the Slave Girl: 1958) to strong and brave action heroines. Finally, I will discuss how the 2010- TV series reflects upon the impact of equality and feminism in the portrayal of the ancient world in our contemporary popular culture.

    Literary and performative portrayal of sex-workers in Greek antiquity2012Inngår i: Gender and Language, ISSN 1747-6321, E-ISSN 1747-633XArtikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    From Classical antiquity to the late Roman Empire, courtesans (hetairai) and other sex-workers are considered an integral part of elite lifestyle. In reality, actual evidence about them is scattered and limited. As a result of this, recent scholarship and art represented them as more deliberated and charming than citizen wives  (eg Jung’s archetypes, Manet’s Olympias etc). However, their variability in textual representation resulted in their recent reconstruction as marginal in status with undefined agency and hierarchy (Davidson: 1997; McClure: 2003; Faraone and McClure: 2006). Most importantly, their textual and performative representation varies significantly. In early Attic Comedy for example (5th and 4th BCE) they feature as silent nudes pawed by men (Aristophanes) but they ‘evolve’ within 200 years to the stock character of New Greek Comedy (Menander). There, they are outspoken and somehow, romanticized.  

    This paper attempts an overview and analysis of the courtesans’ portrayal from Old Greek comedy (Aristophanes) to comic texts of the early Roman Empire, namely Lucian’s comic mimes (Dialogues of the Courtesans) and Athenaeus’ proverbial quotations from famous comedies, now lost in extant form (Learned Banqueters 13). I will contextualize the evolution of character and linguistic abilities of the courtesan with reference to their agency, emotions and status.  I will finally demonstrate how courtesan-related humor informs us, modern readers, about the commercialization of sex, gender and agency in the ancient world.

    Material Girls: Humor and Female Professional Seduction in Greek Literature and Culture2014Inngår i: Eugesta: Journal of Gender Studies in Antiquity, ISSN 2156-2253, Vol. 4Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Current scholarship typically views the ancient Greek prostitute/ courtesan figure as an artificially manipulated, sexualized body motivated by material profit. By examining fragments of Middle Comedy and their echoes in post-classical antiquity, this article proposes an alternative view of courtesans and prostitutes as professionals of emotional labor. Through narrative analysis, I show that the Greek comic portrayal of courtesans is multifaceted and not sufficiently illuminated by discussions of their subjectivity, aesthetic modifications, and greed but also extends to the realm of their emotions. Intersecting gender and humor theories with the concept of Emotional Labor (Hochschild 1983), I then argue that these figures can be seen to comically modify their appearance and behavior in order to reflect contemporary ideological and cultural standards of female sexual conduct. Viewing humor as a communicative tool for social hierarchies consequently facilitates a more complex analysis of attitudes towards the commercialization of bodies and emotions in Greek literature and culture.

    Remixing Classics for the Screen: Woody Allen and the Classical Tradition2015Inngår i: Studia Oliveriana, ISSN 0562-2964, Vol. 1, s. 55-76Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Several films by Woody Allen (Interiors, Oedipus Wrecks, Match Point and Mighty Aphrodite) contain elements of classical tradition that have been neglected or oversimplified by film scholarship as references to the director’s personal engagement with psychoanalysis. Using Mighty Aphrodite (1995) as illustration, I argue that these films convey the expression of contemporary social issues through a complex and multi-layered reception of classical culture that goes beyond pure psychoanalysis. In Mighty Aphrodite, specifically, Allen deploys the strict formalism of tragedy and the myth of Oedipus as film mechanisms for contemporary societal discourse. Via evaluation of film and narrative, I demonstrate that Allen’s classical reception is self-reflexive as it refers back to the very processes of performative arts. Furthermore, Allen utilizes the classical tradition as a form of expression in contemporary classical Hollywood narratives and creates a rich cultural experience for his audience; a cinematic treatise on cultural remix, dramatic formalism and classical reception per se.

    Jag kan, jag ska: En kulturanalytisk studie om hur könsnormer skapas och bekräftas inom fitness- och styrketräning2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att analysera och problematisera hur könsnormer uppstår och reproduceras inom fitness- och styrketräning (FOS). Vår studie tar sin utgångspunkt i sex stycken bilder som hämtats från hashtagen #IcanIwill, varav tre bilder föreställer män och tre föreställer kvinnor. #IcanIwill är en hashtag som återfinns på det sociala mediet Instagram och är kopplat till FOS. För att analysera och problematisera hur könsnormer bekräftas och reproduceras bland bilderna från #IcanIwill har vi genomfört tre olika metoder, bildanalys, fokusgrupp och observation. Vi ansåg att en kombination av de metoderna kunde bidra till olika perspektiv i vår analys. I vår analys kom vi fram till att det finns många skillnader mellan män och kvinnor vad gäller normer om FOS-utövarnas kroppar, vilket bland annat tog sig uttryck i förväntningar om hur män och kvinnor tillåts röra och uttrycka sig olika inom FOS menäven hur gymmiljö kan komma att påverka människor.

    "Vad innehåller lokaljournalistiken?": En veckas lokaljournalistik på webben i Västerbotten2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study ”What’s does the local news contain? - an analysis of a week’s local journalism on the web in Västerbotten, Sweden” examines the different discourses in the local journalism of newspapers and public service media. The aim is to find what makes the local news with the use of a quantitative content analysis combined with a Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA).The study uses a theoretical framework that includes theories surrounding agenda setting, the power of the media, local journalism, news values and web based journalism. For the quantitative content analysis the online text tool Textometrica was used.The analysis found that the local news mainly consisted of news regarding sports and negative news such as crime, accidents and court cases. It also found that the local news mainly focused on a small part of the municipality of Västerbotten in its news coverage, where the biggest city in the region was of the most interest. When other parts were covered it was mostly for sport events or negative news. The qualitative analysis also found that there was a high frequency of updates on the websites and non-local news that made it into the local news due to being sensational. A difference between the newspapers and the public service media was also found where the papers focused more on local debates and public service media wasn’t as tied to earlier theories regarding news values.The study could also state that the content of the local media during the week differed from what is said to be good journalism and also what is said to be the journalistic responsibility that citizens rely on to make democratic decisions.

    Enacting Colonised Space: Katarina Pirak Sikku and Anders Sunna2015Inngår i: Nordisk Museologi, ISSN 1103-8152, nr 2, s. 69-83Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    During 2014 the Swedish city of Umeå was a European Capital of Culture, with the signature Umeå2014. In Umeå’s application there was a strong focus upon the Sámi and the fact that Umeå is situated in Sápmi. Elements from Sámi culture were used in the programme and in the marketing of Umeå as a cultural capital. Bildmuseet, a museum for contemporary visual art and a part of Umeå University, was one of the institutions that contributed to the programme by commissioning works for solo exhibitions from eight artists from Sweden, Norway and Finland. The exhibitions were shown in a series called Eight Sami Artists. !e article explores the function and implication of Sámi elements in Umeå2014 with a specific focus on two of the exhibitions shown at Bildmuseet: Katarina Pirak Sikku’s Nammaláhpán and Anders Sunna’s Area Infected. The role of the museum for problematising colonising narratives, as well as the artists’ use of emotions in the production of Sámi counter narratives are themes explored.

    Fluid Identities and the Use of History: The Northern Lights Route and the Writings of Bengt Pohjanen2007Inngår i: Inter: A European Cultural Studies Conference in Sweden 11-13 June 2007, 2007, s. 227-242Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The article highlights the impact of agency and context in analyses of the theme of identification in texts produced on the levels of aesthetics, ethnic mobilisation, region-building and the European project. The connection between cultural heritage and identity is discussed with examples which elucidate the role of literature in nation-building in the period of modernity and industrialisation. Texts by the Tornedalian author Bengt Pohjanen are foregrounded as part of the ethnic revival emerging in the nineteen-eighties. Swedish examples of the use of history are contrasted against the discourse of the Council of Europe’s Cultural Routes which is part of a supranational project aiming at the construction of a European identity in the political project of preparing the ground for European citizenship. The conclusion presented is that it is not viable to produce a “European identity cultural package” which runs the risk of conflating differences related to aspects such as language, ethnicity, gender, worldview and religion. Identities are fluid, they exist on various levels and shift in response to changing contexts. Sometimes they develop in overlapping discourses. One way of dealing with this is to think of identification as a constant negotiation of symbolic and concrete borders.

    Abstract [en]

    In the early 20th century, many traditional dances fell out of use in Sweden. Today's folk dancing is to a great extent a revived tradition, and the result of enthusiasts documenting and reconstructing old dances. The processes leading to a revived dance tradition are complex and have had a great impact on how the dances are performed and embodied today. Nowadays, folk dancing in Sweden is in many ways an urban phenomenon, but with roots in the countryside. A number of local dance variants have gained national spread, in part turning into archetypes. Despite an emphasis on geographical differences, traditional dance and music constitute one national subculture rather than several regional ones.

    Exploring the multiple use of boreal landscapes: the importance of social-ecological diversity for mobility and flexibility2014Inngår i: Human Ecology, ISSN 0300-7839, E-ISSN 1572-9915, Vol. 42, nr 5, s. 671-682Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Sustainable multiple use of landscapes can be a challenging task for the stakeholders involved, especially when they have competing interests with respect to natural resource management. In this paper we analyze the consequences associated with “landscape diversity”, including the interactions between environmental, administrative and societal factors. As a case study, we describe winter land use for reindeer husbandry in the boreal forest in Northern Sweden, a resource that is also used for commercial timber production. We show how and why the interactions between the three factors associated with landscape diversity affect reindeer herding and the options for responding to change. Multi-dimensional landscape diversity can either (i) promote flexibility in the face of change in the form of mobility or (ii) create fragmentation that restricts adaption to changes. This is a result of the dynamic patterns of diverse landscape structures, created by administrative and societal choices. Because such landscape patterns react differently to environmental variability within a season and between years, landscape functions adjusted to the dynamics of environmental variables could help to provide continuity of grazing resources in both space and time and ensure that reindeer husbandry remains resilient to changes. Because of the unequal distribution of power and capacity for decision making, social learning between the two stakeholders can help to balance trade-offs between both types of land user, allowing them to coexist in a landscape shaped by diverse values, priorities and management practices.

    A place for culture? Building an Alternative House of Culture in the context of the 2014 European Capital of Culture in Umeå, Sweden2018Inngår i: Participations, ISSN 1749-8716, E-ISSN 1749-8716, Vol. 15, nr 2, s. 170-188Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the context of Umeå2014 as European Capital of Culture (ECOC) where the ideal of the inclusive co-creation of culture formed a central part of the programme, we explore the rise, fall and aftermath of an alternative house of culture – Lokstallarna (the Engine Sheds). In its ECOC bid, Umeå stressed its strong alternative, grassroots tradition and ‘Do-It-Yourself’ culture. However, these groups increasingly questioned the inclusiveness of the participatory process around the development and implementation of the programme for the ECOC year. We study one of these alternative movements which occupied disused engine sheds with the aim of turning them into a house of culture ‘for all’ as a counter to the Umeå2014 programme. The focus is on the narrative of Lokstallarna and the creation of an alternative house of culture both from the point of view of those actively involved in its creation and in the local media coverage. We have collected a variety of empirical materials, both on and offline. We approach Lokstallarna as a form of place-based resistance where meanings of activism, culture and the city are negotiated and contested. The ECOC Year in Umeå opened up the opportunity to negotiate both culture and place.

    Singel efter sextio: En kulturanalytisk studie om ålder, genus och relationer2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur pensionerade kvinnor talar om att leva utan partner. I fokus för analysen står föreställningar om ålder, relationer, genus och sexualitet. Studien är baserad på åtta stycken intervjuer. Analysen av materialet utgår från ett kulturanalytiskt perspektiv, med inspiration från performativitetsteori, en konstruktivistisk förståelse av genus och ålder, samt ett intersektionellt perspektiv. Resultaten visar att det finns en ovilja att tala om och identifiera sig som gammal, att vissa sätt att åldras konstrueras som mer önskvärda, att sätt att motverka ensamhet bland äldre förstärker normen av ensamhet som något stigmatiserat, samt att ålder och åldrande konstrueras och får innebörd i relation till andra maktaspekter, däribland genus, civilstånd och sexualitet. Studiens slutsats är att föreställningar om ålder och åldrande inverkar på intervjupersonernas sätt att förstå och tala om sig själva, att upplevelsen av ålder konstrueras i relation till normsystem och kontext och att förståelsen av ålder inverkar på förhållningssätt till ensamhet och singelskap.

    Otherness and Disease in Reunion: The Politicisation of the 2005-2007 Chikungunya Epidemic2014Inngår i: Tidsskrift for kulturforskning, ISSN 1502-7473, E-ISSN 2387-6727, Vol. 13, nr 1-2, s. 61-65Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [no]

    Fra mars 2005 til april 2007 ble den frans­ke øya Réunion i det Indiske Hav for første gang rammet av en epidemi av den vektorbårne sykdommen chikungunya. En vektorbåren sykdom innebærer at smitte overføres indirekte til mennesker via en biologisk bærer slik som mygg, fluer, flått og liknende. Chikungunya-viruset spres via mygg (aedes), og fører blant annet til sterke leddsmerter som kan vare i alt fra noen dager til flere år. Andre symptomer er feber, hodepine og utslett. Rundt 1/3 av Réunion’s totale befolkning på 802 000 mennesker ble smittet, og 250 døde under epidemien.

    Otherness and disease in Reunion: The politicisation of the 2005 to 2007 chikungunya epidemic2013Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In this dissertation I investigate how decolonisation through inclusion instead of independence has affected processes of othering, and reactions to being othered. By othering I mean discursive colonial practices described by post-colonial theories, in which racial and cultural difference is produced as inferior vis-à-vis the “superior” West. The study is based upon a total of eight months of anthropological fieldwork and qualitative research in the French overseas department and Indian Ocean island of Réunion. I focus on the influence of processes of othering on conceptualisations and expectations of (equal) French citizenship, and experiences with disease on the island. This is discussed via the empirical case of Réunion’s first epidemic of the vector-borne disease of chikungunya, which infected almost 30 per cent of the island’s total population of 802,000 inhabitants with painful symptoms of arthralgia from 2005 to 2007. I concentrate particularly on the politicisation of the epidemic as indicated by the rise of polemics and frictions between the local printed press and the Réunionese population on one side, and the public health authorities and the French government on the other. I argue that the controversy was brought on by local reactions against discourses and practices of otherness within French officialdom, for example the late and insufficient preventative intervention by the government and public health authorities.

    My main argument is that departmentalisation has not erased processes of othering in Réunion, but that it has influenced its manifestations. To discuss this, I draw upon the feminist philosopher Luce Irigaray’s ontological approach to sexual difference and gendered otherness by applying her perspectives to explore processes of post-colonial othering. Within Western philosophy the other is produced in opposition to the initial concept of the same. While post-colonial theories primarily conceive of othering as a process to establish difference in order to justify subordination of the other, Irigaray argues that otherness emerges from a Eurocentric expectation of sameness, i.e. similarity. According to Irigaray, otherness is the result of the dominance of a Western philosophical oneness-model upon our ways of thinking and relating to the world, and is produced as the other is absorbed into the same. As a result the other is prevented from establishing independent and equal subjectivity. Within this line of thinking, otherness is not understood to be primarily produced through a manifestation of difference as indicated by post-colonial theories, but is rather a result of its inclusion into the same. I propose this as a useful approach to the discussion of how processes of othering may play out in a post-colonial situation characterised by inclusion instead of separation, as in the case of Réunion’s departmentalisation. Furthermore, I suggest that the politicisation of the chikungunya epidemic was largely caused by failed Réunionese expectations of equal citizenship.

    The question of otherness is investigated in the introduction to this dissertation, and in four separate articles. While the introduction provides a historical, theoretical and methodological framework for the reading of the articles, the first article, “The 2005–2007 chikungunya epidemic in Réunion: ambiguous etiologies, memories and meaning-making” (Jansen 2013), focuses on how confrontations with otherness led to a local questioning of the biomedical aetiology of chikungunya. In order to make sense of the new disease on the island, people often chose to rely on alternative explanations regarding its transmission. In the second article, “The printed press’s representations of the 2005–2007 chikungunya epidemic in Réunion: political polemics and (post)colonial disease” (Jansen 2012), I discuss how the local printed press contributed to the instigation of the political polemics against the French government and the public health authorities. Their criticism was largely brought on as a reaction against representations of Réunionese otherness within the national press and officialdom, but also reflected local perceptions of desertion by the French nation state. The article is based upon an analysis of 111 articles on chikungunya during the epidemic in Réunion’s two main newspapers. In the third article, “Defending the body” (Jansen 2010), I focus on Irigaray’s perspectives on otherness as produced through inclusion and sameness, rather than through an establishment of difference. By comparing Irigaray’s approach to otherness with Simone de Beauvoir’s arguably phenomenological perspectives, the article explores how processes of othering have diverging effects on various bodies, which may influence experiences with illness. The article provides a theoretical backdrop for the reading of the dissertation. In article four, “Otherness as sameness: an Irigarayan perspective on decolonisation through inclusion in French Réunion” (submitted), I use Irigaray’s approach as a theoretical tool to explore how departmentalisation as a strategy for decolonisation has affected processes of othering and reactions to being othered in Réunion. The objective of the article is to acknowledge local struggles for equal citizenship as a strategic move towards the island’s decolonisation along the lines of struggles for emancipation. Moreover, I discuss how political events during the post-departmentalisation years may be described as political dynamics associated with post-colonial and neo-colonial societies simultaneously.
