    Masculinity and autonomous vehicles: A degendered or resegregated future system of automobility?2018In: Transfers, ISSN 2045-4813, E-ISSN 2045-4821, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 44-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the anthropomorphization and interpellative experience of cars and trucks, in order to meet future mobility challenges. Autonomous vehicles off er an emancipatory opportunity within a wider movement of degendering and regendering motor vehicles. We argue that autonomous vehicles can challenge the foundations of a gendered economy founded on masculinity, speed, pleasure, and embodiment. Rather than thinking in terms of a process of demasculinization, this article anticipates a regendering and resegregation through which certain forms of masculine gendered economies of pleasure will lose ground and others will gain. A core question in this article asks who will be in the driver's seat of future systems of automobility as the control of the vehicle is gradually being transferred from the driver to digital control systems and intelligent roads.

    Firefighters, technology, masculinity in the micro-management of disasters in operational service: Examples from Sweden2016In: Men, masculinities and disaster / [ed] Elaine Enarson and Bob Pease, London: Routledge, 2016, p. 165-174Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses how the strong link between technology and masculinity is forming the occupational ethos of fire fighters and how the micro-management of disasters in operational service is directly connected to this gendered work practice. The celebrated masculine ethos of the fire-fighting profession is formed through an intricate process of embodied practical skills, technical dexterity and a capacity to act. As such it carries a particular symbolic weight of classic masculine heroism and is also one reason why fireman has been so celebrated historically. The heroic men preventing disasters, accidents and rescuing people are also connected to a wider cultural imaginary of communal unity, protection and safety, where their form of masculinity is epitomizing a cultural ideal and possibly a last bastion of a particular good-hearted masculine heroism. However, this also an explanatory key for why women are directly and indirectly excluded from the fire services in most countries. These exclusionary and inclusionary practices are thus based on the heavily loaded gendered symbolism as well as the close and embodied relation between technology and masculinity.

     

    In this article based on long term empirical work in the Swedish rescue services, we investigate how the concrete practices of the micro-management of crisis and disaster work are guided by such normative structures, excluding most women and many men of the ‘wrong kind’. We also show certain forms of technology are preferred because of their connection to the idealised form of a man of action.

    Eduscapes: Interpreting Transnational Flows of Higher Education2013In: Globalisation, Societies and Education, ISSN 1476-7724, E-ISSN 1476-7732, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 335-358Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    ‘Knowledge society’ and ‘knowledge economy’ are current buzzwords in the visions of the future made by nations, regions and federations on a global scale. A concrete outcome of this is the globalisation and intensification of higher education and research. The visions based on a knowledge component should be treated as expressions of an ideology. In this article we use the notion of ‘eduscapes’ and ‘imaginaries’ as analytics for an understanding of such visions as these are expressed by individuals and institutional actors involved in educational landscapes. The argument is made that this notion is less ideological and more apt for an analysis of globalisation of higher education.

    Higher Education, Globalization and Eduscapes: Towards a Critical Anthropology of a Global Knowledge Society2018 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book examines transnational scapes and flows of higher education: arguing that the educational and political vision of a national, regional and global knowledge society needs to be perspectivized beyond its ethnocentric conditions and meanings. Using eduscapes as its most important concept, this book explores the educational landscapes of individual as well as institutional actors; particularly the agential aspects of how global eduscapes are imagined, experienced, negotiated and constructed. In addition, the authors highlight the critical potential of anthropology, using this perspective as a resource for cultural critique where the Western experience and assumed ‘ownership’ of the global knowledge economy will be put into question. This comprehensive book will appeal to students and scholars of educational policy, the sociology of education and the globalization of education.

    Revisiting Engineering, Masculinity and Technology Studies: Old Structures with New Openings2011In: International Journal of Gender, Science, and Technology, ISSN 2040-0748, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 313-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we draw broadly on two different research traditions, Gender and Technology Studies (GTS) and studies of gender equality policies in the welfare state, to explain gendered change and stability in the engineering work force in Sweden. Our results draw on a series of qualitative investigations of the engineering workforce over a period of twenty years, and verify change as well as stability. In particular, we locate change in relation to new parenting and fathering discourses. We argue that these discursive changes have profound consequences for work-life balance, and career and life preferences for a new generation of men in the engineering workforce. By revisiting some of the formative assumptions of GTS in regard to the conceptual triad of engineering, masculinity and technology, we also identify the slowness of change in the strong material and symbolic relationship between technology and masculinity.

    Changing affective economies of masculine machineries and military masculinities?: From Ernst Junger to Shannen Rossmiller2012In: Masculinties and Social Change, ISSN 2014-3605, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the affective economy and changing representations of military masculinities with regard to transforming gendered, machinic and digital bodies of integrated (wo)man-machine systems. The self-mechanised ideal of the soldier body that the German writer Ernst Jünger came to formulate has been configurative for generations of military masculinities. Jünger’s work speaks directly to an affective understanding and embodied history of masculinity in the military. However, in the current times of virtual warfare, military masculinities are perhaps changing? As war is going cyber and technical wizardry is as valued as the brute strength of self-mechanised bodies, the body of the soldier is being destabilised. The case of Shannen Rossmiller is here working as a contrastive case. Rossmiller is FBI’s most regarded cyber counter-terrorist. She seems to inhabit and perform certain forms of masculinities better than her male colleagues

    From a Hegemonic Politics of Masculinity to an Ontological Politics of Intimacy and Vulnerability? Ways of Imagining through Karen Barad's Work2016In: Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, ISSN 1555-9998, no 30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I investigate emancipatory spaces in masculinity studies with the guidance of Karen Barad's work, and in particular concepts such as diffraction and interference. For my purposes, Karen Barad's work opens up for understanding critical differences within regulated emotional spaces and stale relationalities of masculine gender configurations. Diffracted readings in masculinity studies could extend the symbolic space for acceptable forms of intimacy and possibly create emancipatory openings for hegemonic and dominant forms of lust communions. I argue that a sensual and conceptual key to alternative routes of masculine gendered subjectivities is intimacy and vulnerability. As such, vulnerability also connotes and produces a range of conceptual and embodied dyads and triads; empowered-disempowered; embodied-disembodied-ablebodied; homosocial-homoerotic-homosexual; potent-impotent; human-nonhuman; old-young, to mention a few. Vulnerability is also an onto-epistemological vantage point that hopefully and possibly could work our way around classical binaries and do a well-needed job as a form of emancipatory compass.

    Global Horizons and Regional Mobility: Russian Student Mobility to Northern Norway and Northern Sweden2017In: Higher Education in the High North: Academic Exchanges between Norway and Russia / [ed] Marit Sundet, Per-Anders Forstorp, Anders Örtenblad, Cham: Springer, 2017, p. 221-240Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book focuses on how the Northern futures are transformed through regional cooperation in the Barents eduscape: a study of the social, cultural and political aspects of higher education and the exchanges of learning and people in the Euro-Arctic Barents region, especially between Norway and Russia.Cultural exchange through higher education involving actors such as students and institutions is an integral part both of the Bologna process and of the policies currently changing higher education. It is also a process of social and cultural change of which we have limited knowledge. Cultural exchange is learned, implemented and performed by the actors who are involved, from the highest political level to the grassroots and the students themselves. Available knowledge of these macro- and micro-processes of cultural exchange is largely fragmented and distinctly framed in national and/or disciplinary (i.e. pedagogical) contexts. In order to understand the transformative potentials of higher education and cultural exchange, this book focuses on the social, cultural and political aspects of the transformations of the futures in the North. This book shows that educational cooperation between Norway and Russia is possible, but also that the existing practices are extremely vulnerable to changes seen through micro theoretical perspectives. By developing new theories which bind major theories, international political decisions, methodological procedures and contextual descriptions together, this book is a first step in the direction of institutionalizing educational cooperation between the various and different academic societies, cultures and political systems.

    Kunskapssamhällets gästarbetare: Internationella studenter i interferenser mellan kön, sexualitet, nationalitet och klass i globaliserade utbildningslandsskap2012In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 1-2, p. 49-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to investigate interferences between

    gender, class, sexuality, and ethnicity among international students

    by looking at migration patterns and living conditions of international

    master and PhD-students at three Swedish universities (Luleå

    University of Technology (LTU), Linköping University (LiU), The

    Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)). The experiences of these

    students with regard to transnationalism, higher education and

    research is a point of departure for discussing global stratification

    and transformation in the contemporary neoliberal knowledge

    economy. The article interprets the transnational flows of higher

    education in relation to a critical understanding of knowledge

    society and higher education by introducing the notion of eduscapes.

    This concept refers to the contemporary transnational flow

    of ideas and people with regard to higher education, and where

    nodes of knowledge centres and peripheries shift over time but are

    connected through modern communication technologies and

    different epistemic, ethnic, and student communities. In the

    transnational practices of higher education where students travel

    the globe in search and dreams of knowledge, a better life and

    future career possibilities, routes and imaginaries to a large extent

    reproduce and follow geopolitical power patterns. In this respect

    education by going global is shrinking the world but also stratifies,

    creating new patterns of inequality and competition.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter investigates how and why computer science in Malaysia is dominated by women. Drawing on recent critical interventions in gender and technology studies the paper aims at opening up for more culturally situated analyses of the gendering of technology or the technology of gendering with the Malaysian case exemplifying the core of the argument. The paper argues along four different strands of critical thought: (1) A critique of the ‘black-boxing’ of gender in gender and technology studies; (2) A critique of the Anglo-centric bias of gender and technology studies advocating more of context sensitivity and focus on the cultural embeddedness of gender and technology relations; (3) In line with that, also paying more attention to spatial practices and body politics in regard to race, class, and gender in gender and technology relations; 4. A critique of ‘western’ positional notions of gender configurations and opening up for more fluid constructions of gender identity including the many crossovers between relational and positional definitions of femininity and masculinity.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to discuss how heterosexual masculinity (hereafter only masculinity) is constructed in the balance between essentialized ideas of what makes out masculine “nature” and virtues of achieved or performed manhood among working-class Malaysian Chinese men in Penang, Malaysia. This group of men (and a few women), descendants of Nanyang migrants from the southern provinces of China who once sojourned the South China Sea in massive numbers, fleeing from starvation, famines, and political repression in search of viable conditions for making a decent living, is now living as an ethnic minority in the Muslim-dominated Malaysia. In the following, this group of Malaysian Chinese working class men will make out the narrative focus in trying to understand how a particular form of Malaysian Chinese masculinity is constructed in the intersection of gender, race, religion, and class.

    Masculinities, Gender Equality and Crisis Management2016Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overarching mission of the rescue services comprises three main areas of responsibility: protection against disasters and accidents; crisis management; and civil defence. This mission covers a long chain of obligations in trying to improve societal prevention capabilities and manage threats, risks, accidents, and disasters concerning generic as well as individual safety. It follows a reactive social chain of threat-risk-crisis-crisis management-care-rehabilitation.

    The authors in this book show that the interesting occupational characteristics of these societal duties are their connection to gender and crisis management in a wider sense. Gendered practices, processes, identities, and symbols are analytical lenses that provide a particular understanding and explanatory base that has received far too little attention in the academic literature. This book identifies four major themes in relation to a gendered understanding of the rescue services, and more generally emergency work:

      • Masculine heroism

      • Intersectional understandings of sexuality, class, and race

      • Gender and technology

    • Gender equality and mainstreaming processes

    This book shows how the rescue services constitute a productive ground for contemporary gender studies, including feminist theory, masculinity and sexuality studies. Its critical perspective provides new directions for emergency work and crisis management in a broader sense, and in particular for scholars and practitioners in these areas.

    Introduction: Masculinities, Gender Equality, Crisis Management and the Rescue Services: Contested Terrains and Challenges2016In: Masculinities, Gender Equality and Crisis Management / [ed] Mathias Ericson, Ulf Mellström, London: Routledge, 2016, 1, p. 1-16Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this introduction we provide an overview of research on gender issues in the rescue services in combination with introducing the different contributions in this book. The overview is primarily concerned with three national contexts; the U.S., the U.K. and Sweden, and we focus on the most prevalent themes in the literature as well as pointing out under-researched areas. The empirical contributions in this volume draw on empirical work from Sweden, the U.K. and Denmark.

     

    Our aim in this book is to show how the rescue services constitutes a fertile ground for epistemological and methodological concerns in contemporary gender studies, including feminist theory, masculinity and sexuality studies. We also believe that the critical perspective offered by interdisciplinary gender studies can provide new perspectives on emergency work and crisis management in a broader sense.As this area of research is still in an early stage, and this book is (to our knowledge) the first collected volume dealing with gender and rescue services, we also want to introduce prevalent themes in the academic literature as well as pointing out neglected areas.

    Game-based learning in Second Life. Do Gender and Age Make a Difference?2010In: Journal of Gaming & Virtual Worlds, ISSN 1757-191X, E-ISSN 1757-1928, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 53-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    New learning technologies have changed the way teaching and learning is delivered.

    One of the technologies that offers great potential in helping to motivate and engage

    students is game-based learning. Social virtual worlds offer rich interactive threedimensional

    collaborative spaces where users can meet and interact. One example

    of such an environment is Second Life (http://www.secondlife.com; henceforth

    ‘Second Life’). This article provides an overview of a recent trial carried out at

    Imperial College London aimed to explore gender-related attitudes towards gamebased

    learning in Second Life. This article also draws on three recent studies to

    furthermore explore gender-related issues in computer and video game play. We

    here argue that the gender gap in gaming and learning is becoming less analytically

    significant, and in conjunction with this that game experiences have to be viewed

    from a more inclusive perspective in regard to game genre, gender and age.
