    InterNacionalistas: identifikation och främlingskap i svenska solidaritetsarbetares berättelser från Nicaragua2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to explore what solidarity workers from Sweden narrate about and from activities in Nicaragua. I focus on how identities reflect nationalising, racialising and gendering imaginations, and how these are being handled within the context of an international solidarity movement – with the ambition to strive for global justice.

    My search for answers takes its point of departure in a wide gender-oriented postcolonial perspective. With an understanding of identities and places as relational and plastic, postcolonial theory attempts to see the inevitable dilemmas of colonialism, to visualise people who have been sacrificed in the name of colonialism and nationalism. It is a theoretical field concerned with the struggle for the word, values and actions categorised by a (post)colonial order. The dissertation is divided into six chapters. After the introductory chapter, chapter 2 contains a discussion of the concept solidarity as a valuable designation for these activities, connected to a national self-image and as a determining factor for the informants' understanding of their identities.

    One fundamental theme in this study is the tension concerning “white”, “western”, “Swedish” solidarity workers speaking for and working with people in Nicaragua. In Chapter 3, “To make oneself trustworthy”, I take a closer look at this and discusses how the interviewees verbalised strategies to handle possible positions and the paradoxes of their employment. In chapter 4 “Nationalising gender”, I examine the speech of women, men, machismo and gender equality – and how they interrelate with other factors within the stories from the period in Nicaragua.

    The difficulties to intervene as a Swedish volunteer or coordinator in Nicaragua were well known among the interviewees/narrators and their organisations. How and what activities for change could be in different parts of the world were, and are, repeated questions within (at least this part of) the Swedish international solidarity movement. This is one reason why the solidarity organisations emphasised the importance of creating space for social change via information and moulding of public opinion. In Chapter five, “Describe Nicaragua”, I analyse the written stories by solidarity workers. I take departure in a few of the dominating themes and clarify how Nicaragua was mediated to a Swedish speaking reader. I argue that the stories of the solidarity workers are captured between recognising difference and creating stereotypes and exotic projections. Even though their object is the opposite, they tend to produce representations which demand the Other to stay in the place of difference. In the very last part I discuss some problems with being the “voice of the poor”.

    The dissertation concludes with a short summary of some of the most central themes. Here I refer to the narrated liminality and inherited boundaries of the employment. I discuss the anti-imperialist and feminist work with a national dead weight and the efforts to create alternative images and translocal subject positions. I end the study by reflecting on the difficulties of an internationalist “we” and with reference to Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, I call for “unlearning our privileges as our loss”.

    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan 1980-talet har svenska volontärer rest till Nicaragua för att hjälpa till med återuppbyggnad och demokratisering av landet. Resorna bidrog till en specifik upplevelse med en rad politiska och personliga implikationer som var svåra att förmedla efter hemkomsten till Sverige.

    Solidaritet och representation: En analys av artiklar om utsatta arbeterskor i nicaraguanska frihandelszoner2005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    NICARAGUANSKA PÅ SVENSKA – EN REPRESENTATION AV UTSATTHET?

    I svensk allmänmedia finns ingen fördjupad bevakning av händelser i kontinenter som Latinamerika och Afrika. Katastrof eller exotism utgör regel snarare än undantag i bilderna från många delar av världen, däribland Nicaragua. När svenska biståndsarbetare tjänstgör i Nicaragua förväntas de förmedla kunskap om landet till Sverige. I artiklar och resebrev artikuleras berättelser om regionen.

    Biståndsarbetares skildringar av landet handlar i stor utsträckning om att teckna ”fattigdomens ansikten”, ofta i kontrast till Sverige. Att synliggöra och skapa intresse för världens orättvisor är en del av organisationernas mål med informationsarbetet. Men representationer av utsatthet repeterar samtidigt gränser för föreställningar om liv i denna region. I efterföljande paper har jag för avsikt att undersöka (o)möjligheten att skapa alternativa bilder av Nicaragua. En central fråga kommer att vara: Är det görligt att informera om landet till svenska läsare utan att reproducera stereotyper? Texten knyter an till teorier om översättning, identitet och postkolonialitet.

    Terapeutiska utflykter: Modernitet, kärlek och självhjälp i samtida ”tribe-tv”2010In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 2-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Narratives about Europeans entering so called premodern cultures have a long tradition, and “tribetv” based on arranged visits from Europeans to “the world’s remotest tribes” has become a growing genre today. In the documentary Tribal Wives, six British women where described as experiencing cultures that had “hardly changed in centuries” and getting one month to reflect over their habits and priorities in life. In search for contrasts between female lives, love and heterosexual contracts the program turn into self-representations based on Eurocentric imaginations. Tribal Wives become a therapeutic journey (set by BBC) aiming to heal modern souls, an adventure to pre-historic land with forgotten truths for the modern woman to bring back to the future.

    Testimonio and representation: An analysis of articles about women workers in Nicaraguan free trade zones2005In: Politics conference: Sixth Essex Graduate Conference in Political Theory ‘Difference, borders, others’, 2005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The following presentation discusses representation and testimonio in Swedish information on Nicaraguan women workers that has been produced by so called ‘development workers’. In Spanish the word testimonio is literally translated as ‘testimony’, as in the act of testifying or bearing witness in a legal or religious sense. In articles such as “The slave market in Nicaragua is growing” and “Karla – an ordinary robot” the journalist and development worker, Victoria Myrén, translates and mediates stories by women workers in Nicaraguan free trade zones for Swedish speaking readers. The articles express a sense of urgency to communicate experiences of repression and a desire to represent the way marginalized positions are used to legitimate capitalist recolonizing. In an attempt to demonstrate the suffering of women within the free trade zones, the articles position the reader as a jury in a courtroom listening to close descriptions of violations. The story of Karla Manzanares (translated and mediated by Myrén) depicts colonial domination, economic exploitation, sexism and racism.

    In this paper I argue that by speaking out, re-establishing a ‘voice’, Karla is also re-inscribing a subordinate position in society. The contradictions inherent in the project of representing the subaltern and simultaneously deconstructing the discourses that constitute the subaltern are evident. As Gayatri Spivak has pointed out, the recovery of the ‘voice’ of the subaltern also entails its erasure, since the mode of representation given in testimonio is no longer located in the space of subalternity but is instead more like a ‘ventriloquist’s dummy’.

    Karla’s written destiny stand for something inhuman happening in a country far away. The image of the tragic woman worker capture our fears. Like a safe place to contain horrible things in the world, she becomes a projection of desire for the solution of insoluble conflicts. These stories about Karla and other women workers are emancipatory actions yet they also act as surfaces of projection for desire, disgust and anger. This paper therefore explores the fine balance between mediating testimonios and reconstructing an image of Nicaraguan woman as the Other, as a negative mirror to the idea of white, western (Swedish) women.

    Abstract [en]

    Racist hate crimes have increased in Sweden since 2006 when reports started, but they have also been followed by a variety of protests. This article analyzes the so-called #HijabUppropet (#HijabOutcry), a call initiated by Muslim feminist activists in response to a racist attack on a Muslim woman, which encouraged all "sisters" in Sweden to temporarily veil themselves in solidarity. The hijab outcry was widely heard and both celebrated and debated. Drawing on postcolonial feminist theory, this article shows how the initial protest against racism was partly reduced to a matter of being for or against the veil and the right to choose. Despite intentions to normalize the veil, the flow of comments and pictures on social media turned veils into examples of odd, exotic, and beautiful elements that enrich Swedish culture. The white secular subject was again reinstalled as the ideal and it seemed as though Muslim women could not pass as agents of Swedish feminist solidarity. Yet, at the same time, the debate in the aftermath of the hijab outcry had the effect of initiating an uneasy feeling of not belonging among white non-Muslim participators. This was a feeling that might affect future acts of solidarity—confronting a Swedish context of secular pride and whiteness—where Muslim women must struggle to be recognized as political subjects.

    (Un-)veiling the west: Burkini-gate, Princess Hijab and dressing as struggle for postsecular integration2016In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 263-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ban of the burkini in the summer of 2016 in France is the latest stage in a long political history, where the French depreciation or fear of the veil, and of Islam, has come to play a more significant role since the end of the cold war. Unveiling female bodies at the beach in Nice expose conditioned values of the French republic. In this context, drawing black veils on public advertisements becomes a performative act commenting on consumerism, religion, secularity, and the imagined Muslim woman. In this article we discuss freedom and integration in "third spaces" via an analysis of "hijabisation" in street art and the official reactions against certain types of beachwear. In line with Talal Asad (2006) we want to raise the issue on how the secular state addresses the pain of people who are obliged to give up part of their religious identity to become acceptable. Race-thinking was once an explicit part of celebrated values like modernity, secularity, democracy and human rights. However, the fact that the idea of races has been erased from articulations of Western nations and international bodies does not mean that traces of race-thinking in the heritage from the enlightenment are gone. By following Princess Hijab and the "Burkini-gate" a nationalist fantasy intertwined with the idea of the secular state reveals itself and acts of un/dressing emerge as signs of integration revealing a challenged imperialist paradigm.

    Abstract [en]

    Secularities – firstness through religion and gender

    In this article we explore how the positing religion as other simultaneously makes secularism a firstness. How does actors use and embodies secularism and reproduce it as an objective and neutral space – a firstness. The secular subject is being represented as free and rational in contrast to an imagined religious, traditional, and often Muslim other. By studying Swedish contemporary debates about freedom of speech, veils, gender equality, and the in/tolerant society, we aim to unpack how secularism is done in a Swedish neoliberal contemporary context. Inspired by Talal Asad, we wish to contribute to the undermining of the tightly knit weave of secularism, reason and critique in Western discourse.

    Heart Rate Distribution during Training and a Domestic League Game in Swedish Elite Female Soccer Players2015In: Annals of Sports Medicine and Research, ISSN 2379-0571, Vol. 2, no 4, article id 1025Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Soccer is a complex sport with high cardiovascular demands. Preparation for the demands of competition often involves game-simulation practice. This is supposed to improve the physiological adaptions. The main purpose of this study was to compare heart rate (HR) distribution among elite female soccer players during in-season training sessions and a game. Methods: Fifteen players were observed during three regular training sessions, and at a domestic league game using Polar Team2 HR monitors. HR was categorized into HR zones to compare intensities of each activity observed. Results: HR values were significantly higher during the game (HRmean: 168±9 beats per minute (bpm), HRpeak: 189±8 bpm) than during training (HRmean: 134±11 bpm, HRpeak: 183±9 bpm, p<0.001). Players spent 55% of the game and 11% of the total training time at high intensity (HR above 90% of HRpeak, p<0.001).HRmean and HRpeak were significantly higher in the first half compared with the second half of the game (p<0.05). Conclusion: The present study demonstrates higher HR values and longer duration at high intensity during game play in comparison with training, which indicates higher demands on the players' internal load during the game. Thus, the results suggest the need to include high intensity exercise sessions during training.
