    Polis, polis, kvinnogris: En studie om kvinnliga poliser i dagens samhälle2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Polisyrket har alltid varit ett mansdominerat yrke men fler och fler insatser görs för att mängden kvinnor ska öka inom kåren eftersom att de fortfarande är underrepresenterade. Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att ta reda på hur kvinnliga poliser i anseende med att de är just kvinnor, upplever att de bemöts av allmänheten, manliga kollegor och organisationen. För att ta reda på detta har vi genomfört sex kvalitativa intervjuer med kvinnliga poliser i Sverige. Vi har utgått från litteratur om genus, kvinnliga poliser och andra könsrelaterade teorier. I studien har det framkommit att de kvinnliga poliserna inte upplever kombinationen av deras kvinnlighet och yrket polis som något problemskapande. De känner sig heller inte mindre respekterade varken av manliga kollegor eller organisationen, när det kommer till allmänheten uppvisar den ibland tvivel mot en kvinnlig polis. Många är av den uppfattningen att kvinnor inte hör hemma hos polisen då de inte har samma fysiska styrka som män. Den här studien visar på att så är inte fallet utan även kvinnor kan ha styrkan som krävs och kan också med sin kvinnlighet komplettera kåren. Myten om att polisyrket endast är för män lever fortfarande kvar i viss mån då vissa individer som är i kontakt med polisen föredrar en manlig polis framför en kvinnlig.

    Motstånd och strategier i jämställdhetsarbete2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Jämställdhetsarbete väcker ofta motstånd, det har de flesta som arbetar med jämställdhet erfarenhet av. Men vilka strategier kan förändringsaktörer använda för att bemöta motstånd och komma vidare i jämställdhetsarbetet, är frågan som utforskas i denna bok.

    Jämställdhetsarbete berör ofta angelägna frågor där det kan finnas motstridiga intressen, till exempel kring fördelning av resurser, inflytande och ansvar. Inte sällan uppstår starka känslor hos människor. En del visar öppet sin oro. Andra praktiserar förnekelse på olika sätt. Vissa blir aggressiva. Många protesterar i tysthet. Denna ovilja mot förändring brukar formuleras i termer av motstånd och kan alltså komma till uttryck på många sätt.

    I boken ges ett perspektiv på makt och motstånd som syftar till att bidra till upplevelser av ett större handlingsutrymme för att möta motstånd mot jämställdhetsarbete. Ingången består av material som har skapats i ett forskningsprojekt där jämställdhetsarbetare, medarbetare och chefer, från myndigheter och kommuner har utforskat motstånd och strategier tillsammans med genusforskare. Materialet ger en inblick i vad det kan innebära att arbeta med jämställdhet, vad en förändringsaktör möter och förväntas hantera i jämställdhetsarbetet. Ett bidrag i boken är en rad av idéer på handlingsalternativ för att möta motstånd, som mejslats fram i olika former i projektet. Bokens bidrag handlar också om att förvalta de kunskaper som skapats gemensamt och hur teori kan hjälpa oss att fördjupa, förstå och agera.

    Boken är skriven av fyra genusforskare vid Karlstads universitet respektive Göteborgs universitet och riktar sig till alla som är intresserade av jämställdhet, förändring och utbildning i organisationer och verksamheter.

    ”Du är inte tjock, du är ju jättefin!”: En kvalitativ studie om fat-shaming på internet och upprätthållandet av normen kring den smala kvinnokroppen.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi har i vårt västerländska samhälle en smalhetsnorm som innebär att smala kroppar premieras på bekostnad av tjocka. Dessa tjocka kroppar stigmatiseras, diskrimineras och förtrycks strukturellt, så kallad fat-shaming. Forskning visar att fat-shaming drabbar tjocka kvinnor allra hårdast. En arena som blir en allt större del av våra liv är internet, och här – precis som i den ”vanliga världen”, är fat-shaming vanligt förekommande. Syftet med studien är att, ur ett genusvetenskapligt perspektiv, undersöka den negativa synen på kvinnor med tjocka kroppar, genom att utforska olika mönster av fat-shaming på internet, samt hur normen om kvinnokroppen som smal återskapas och upprätthålls, genom kommentarerna. Som analysverktyg för normens upprätthållande, användes begreppet performativitet. Studien fann fem kategorier av fat-shaming i kommentarerna, med totalt tolv subkategorier. Kommentarerna innehöll fat-shaming som kretsade kring följande teman: (o)hälsa, samhällsbelastning, fördomar om tjocka, förringning av stigma-problematiken, samt förolämpningar. Genom att med språket peka ut den tjocka kvinnokroppen som mindre duglig och avvikande reproduceras och upprätthålls synen på den smala kvinnokroppen som det önskvärda, som normen. Bara genom att peka ut avvikare kan normen upprätthållas, och kommentarerna i denna studie fungerar som ett verbalt utpekande.

    "Who am I now?" Sense of Gender and Place in Digital Gameplay: Affective Dimensions of gameplay in XCOM: Enemy Within2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I analyze the ways in which gender and space are shaped and made sense of through digital gameplay. Specifically in the turn based strategy game XCOM: Enemy Within for the MacBook Air with a computer mouse as the primary input device. Using a mixed methods approach consisting of gameplay sessions of XCOM and qualitative interviews with two players regarding their gameplay I argue that earlier research on space within game studies has overlooked the ways in which the shaping of space in gameplay is also gendered. Developing a theoretical framework influenced by gender studies, critical theory, affect theory, assemblage theories of space, and game theory, I argue for how the shaping of space and gender in game-play is interdependent. This in that the shaping of space and gender in digital gameplay is in constant relation and tension with societal norms and the affective capacities of bodies and digital games. In conclusion, I reflect on the possibilities to develop more empirical research based on the the theoretical framework explored in the essay.

    Abstract [en]

    This thesis uses a norm-critical perspective to highlight the diversity presented from a selection of picture books published by swedish authors between the years 2016-2021. The work will focus on some of the norms that the picture book presents regarding, among other things, gender, functional variations and culture

    Furthermore, the picture book's multimodal communication method will be analyzed on the basis of the method approach semiotic modality and further examined through quantitative and qualitative analysis methods. This is to highlight the importance of the text and the equivalence of the illustration in the multimodal communication.

    In my process, a selection of nine books has been selected and critically examined on the basis of norm-critical criteria and through both conventional and iconic signs in order to create as comprehensive an analysis as possible.

    In conclusion the results of this study are presented where norms and/or themes that recur, or are not noticed, are also addressed in several of the books. Furthermore, the importance of the preschool educator's understanding of the picture book, norm criticism and inclusion is highlighted. Emphasis is placed on the educators understanding why regular reflections and analyzes of the material the preschool offers the children should be made.

    Trans representation in The black tides of Heaven and a trans fantasy meeting.2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The following essay examines The black tides of Heaven by Neon Yang and its trans representation through a trans reading. The essay is based on research questions involving trans representation and how these representations challenge cisnormative ideas of gender and body and how fantasy is a possibility for trans stories. Throughout the essay, the novella is discussed from different topics such as trans as starting point, trans bodies and depathologisation, the novella as a decolonial work, and trans representation, exit scapes and a trans fantasy alliance. From this analysis, I can conclude that there are multiple disruptive representations of trans, making it an important piece of trans text and also in giving hope and comfort to trans readers.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    This paper is a study in press reception with the intent to examine how twelve female actionheroes have been portrayed in Swedish media between 1974 – 2006. The purpose is to discern patterns and differences in how the female movie character is received by their contemporary journalists and to relate their views to social and gender related theories.

     The female actionhero is an independent and brutal character, often alone and without a mother or a child. This separates her from typical female roles, which historically been characterized by passivity, fear and dependency on the male characters in the movie.

     The female actionhero as a character opens up for complex reception. One perspective in the research identifies the independent woman as a feministic icon. Other researchers and writers relate her masculine attributes, sexual charisma and the movies' financial driving force as a projection of male fantasies.

     The summarization of the critique expressed by Swedish press journalists based on 124 movie reviews and other film related articles expose noticeable differences. From a girl who stood in the shadow of male heroes to a coarse woman who surpass them. But there are still areas in which 30 years haven’t changed a thing. Critics still fixate on the female heroe's physical appearance and her achievements are with few exceptions compared to men, and not other women. The critic reception also establishes that journalists since 1974 have become less inclined to apply gender or other social theories to the movies and female heroes. A gender related perspective is despite an independent and strong woman in the background for other perspectives while male critics are in comparison to female critics significantly more inclined to apply feministic theories to movies with female actionheroes.

    Cyborgs and entanglements of technology, masculinity, and (automated) vehicles2019In: Feministische Studien, ISSN 0723-5186, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 320-335Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we will discuss different entanglements of technology and masculinity with a special focus on (automated) vehicles. Starting from a cyborg- epistemology formulated as 'thesis, anti-thesis, synthesis, prosthesis' (Gray 2001: 189), we will, in three sections, entangle and disentangle different discourses and practices around how masculinity has been constructed around intimacy, technology, and cyborgisation. Historically, this points in both destructive directions and emancipatory hopes of transcendence through cyborgisation. Cyborgs are thus political technologies, and we argue that a history of masculinity as well as the future of masculinity, in a western context and beyond, can be understood in relation to cyborgisation and intimacy with technological artefacts. It is argued that cyborgs are possibly the tricksters of the future posthuman masculinity but they are also a tool to understand the 'leitmotif' of male transcendence in the history of masculinity. To illustrate our point, we will use different forms of technologies of movement and other man-machine relations as our "objects-to-think-with", considering gendered power relations and emancipatory potentials (Haraway 2004: 321).

    Gender and transport: Affective structures and practices2022In: The Routledge Companion to Gender and Affect / [ed] Todd W. Reeser, Taylor & Francis, 2022, p. 111-120Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter responds to the broad question of how gender and affect can be co-thought in studies of mobilities and transport. We regard transport and mobility systems as affective structures, where man–machine complexities are being performed. In this chapter, we exemplify these relations, focusing on how cyborgic entanglements of man–machine, transport and affective structures are staged, and enacted in selected historical, contemporary and future cases. We argue that emotion and affect are strong motivational powers that regulate how we travel, in what way we travel and how we appreciate different means of transportation. Last, we discuss whether the current and coming automatization of automobility can possibly disrupt rather than reify the historically strong connection between masculinity, the power of engines, speed and risk. Our question is: as the affective structures of automobility are anticipated to change when future forms of automobility will be more about “passengering” in automated and connected mobility systems, will this also fundamentally change the driver/technology relation?

    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.

    The central intention of this article is to challenge orthodoxies regarding hetero-masculinity—orthodoxies which have tended to constitute it as a static monolithand queer as the only potential site for a less oppressive sexuality. In questioningsuch orthodoxies, I consider the possibilities for (libidinal)heterodoxyin relation tohetero-masculinity. The term heterodoxy enables thinking about hetero-masculinitydifferently. In developing an alternative approach to hetero-masculinity, I turn to thequestion of how a transgressive hetero-masculinity might be conceptualized. Such aquestion complicates our understandings of sexuality and social change and opens upnew, more positive theoretical and empirical directions which move beyond existingorthodoxies.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    In today's social climate, transgender people are widely discussed in elite sports. But what does it look like for the trans people in everyday life who workout, but don't compete? The purpose of this study is to investigate whether transgender people experience inclusion in various training activities, as well as training spaces in general on an everyday level. Through the theoretical perspectives of gender, as well as 'Health', we have studied previous research that concerns personal perspectives from trans people regarding the area. With a quantitative method in the form of a survey, and a total of 30 trans people as respondents, we have analyzed their answers and seen correlations in their experiences. In the results, we have found that changing rooms are an obvious recurring problem in terms of transgender people's experience of inclusion and safety. However, we also see that a number from this group of trans people feel inclusion in their training associations. Based on the personal perspective received from these trans people, we can determine that they generally have good health habits and good knowledge of exercise that gives them sturdy conditions to be well on their own, but that there are clear obstacles around them, especially for those who feel that their exercise activities do not work actively to overcome these obstacles. In conclusion, we agree that the need for training associations that actively work to include a diversity of gender identifications is undeniably large.

    Segregationens seghet och dess föränderliga former: En vänbok till Lena Gonäs2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en bok som handlar om kön och arbete. Som den vänbok den är utgör kapitlen en blandning av allt ifrån reflekterande texter till empiriska studier. Boken är indelad i tre övergripande teman. Den första delen inbegriper tre kapitel som utgörs av tillbakablickar och beskriver hur forsking kring kön och jämställdhet bedrivits sedan i början på 80-talet och framåt. Därefter följer en del med fyra kapitel som fokuserar arbetsmarknad, sysselsättning och segregation. Boken avslutas med fyra kapitel som berör områdena arbete och familj, yrkesval. Boken inleds emellertid med en intervju med Lena. Vi hoppas att denna mångfacetterade samling texter kan göra vår uppskattning till Lena rättvisande, men också att de kan fungera som en inspirationskälla till vidare forskning och tankar kring kön och arbete.

    Parental Illness and Young People's Education2020In: Child Indicators Research, ISSN 1874-897X, E-ISSN 1874-8988, Vol. 13, no 6, p. 2069-2091Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of parental health problems on the probability of youths leaving upper secondary education before completion in Sweden, and to investigate potential gender differences in these effects. Medical and social microdata from Swedish administrative registers were used. The study population consisted of individuals born between 1987 and 1990 (N = 398,748) who were still alive and residing in Sweden in 2010. We employed a quasi-experimental pre-test post-test study design. Logistic regression was used to analyse the relationships between indicators of parental illness and young people's early school leaving in relation to health and sociodemographic confounders. Having had a mother or father with psychiatric, but not somatic, illness that necessitated hospitalisation after completing compulsory schooling was significantly associated with an increased probability of leaving upper secondary education. We found no significant gender-specific interaction effects. The existence of these effects in Sweden, a country with an extensive institutional welfare system, suggests that similar but more pronounced effects may exist in regions lacking such systems.

    Politicians’ Instagram personas in relation to Swedish politics: A discourse analysis of personas from a gender point of view of Swedish political party leaders’ Instagram accounts2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to investigate how the leaders for the Swedish parliamentary parties appear on their official Instagram accounts. By conducting a discourse analysis, looking at both text, visual images, and the combination of the two in the Instagram posts, the intention is to analyse how gender is being performed through the rhetorical concept of persona. 

    The analysis show that all eight party leaders mainly enact political/professional personas. Sub-personas derived to this category are individual vs group member, active vs passive, and critic. The male party leaders exhibit the individual, active and critical personas to a greater extent than their female counterparts, and thereby performing gender in a stereotypically masculine way – reproducing the image of the stereotypical male politician. The analysis also finds that some party leaders, mainly female ones, use personal personas to a greater extent. 

    The conclusion is that all party leaders mainly use professional personas, profiling them as first and foremost politicians. But when looking at how the personas are carried out, the female party leaders can be seen using numerously more personas than the male ones, especially adding on personal personas. In addition to enacting the traditional female stereotype of having to handle both carrier and family, this may reward them with additional Instagram followers. But when the number of followers is put in relation to surveys of trust and opinion polls, the conclusion is that the party leaders exhibiting masculine coded personas are more prosperous in actual politics.

    Becoming Transdisciplinary?: Three Dialogues2011In: PLoS biology, ISSN 1544-9173, E-ISSN 1545-7885, Vol. 9, no 10, article id e1001178Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Neuroschool, and in particular the Experiment contest with which the week culminated, was a transformative experience for the 2010 Alumni. The participants were determined to continue reflecting on the ways in which this experience had affected their perspectives on research and so, scattered across the globe, each Experiment team organised a Skype meeting to discuss a list of questions derived in collaboration with Dr Giovanni Frazzetto. Their aim was to produce group dialogues that would help participants clarify what they had learned about transdisciplinarity, and which would also communicate to others the experience of taking part in The Experiment. Further, the group production of this report was itself a way in which to continue addressing the challenges of transdisciplinary collaboration.

    Karaktärers genusframställning i bilderböcker som vunnit Augustpriset: En kvalitativ bild- och textanalys med fokus på genus2023Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The following study aims to analyze picture books that have been awarded with the August Prize. The study focuses on characters' gender representation and the picture books have been analyzed through a qualitative picture- and text analysis. The characters biological sex has one role in the analysis, but the emphasis lays on the characters actions and what the actions can say about their performative gender. The theories behind this study are Hirdman´s (2001, 1988/2020) and Butler´s (2007) gender theories. The literature analyzes showed that the representation of gender in the primary literature looks different and that gender does not necessarily correspond to the biological sex. The most important conclusion is that preschool teachers can influence which gender representations the children will be able to take part in the preschool's activities by consciously choosing literature for teaching. The Swedish preschool curriculum states that the staff should encourage the children to broaden their gender identity by for example encouraging them to take up activities that go outside the stereotypical gender norms (Skolverket, 2018).

    Innebörden av heteronormen i undervisningen inom grundsärskolan: En kvalitativ studie om innebörden av heteronormen inom undervisningen på grundsärskolan mot läroplanen ämnen.2023Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the meaning of heteronormativity within the elementary special school. With the hope to contribute to an increased understanding of teachers work against heteronormative within the primary special school. The investigation is based on a phenomenographic research approach where the results are based on semi-structured qualitative interviews which have then been interpreted and analyzed with the help of the previous research and queer theory and crip theory.

    The previous research creates a image of a heterosexual elementary special school, where issues related to gender, family constellations, sexual orientation and LGBTQ issues are deprioritized in teaching.

    The main result shows that the teachers in this study is carrying out a constant norm-critical work regarding issues concerning gender, family constellations, sexual orientation and LGBTQ issues. Where the teachers strive to protect the students identities and the school's work to promote everyone’s special characteristics. However, it cannot be ignored that heteronormativity has a presence within the primary special school, mainly through an unawareness of heteronormativity within the teaching staff, but that there is indirect work against the heteronormativity with great development potential. Above all, the responsibility for the teaching of rights, the socialization task must be distributed more among all the subjects regarding the issues concerning gender, family constellations, sexual orientation, and LGBTQ issues. This is to be able to increase awareness of heteronormativity even more and to promote the norm-critical work within the primary special school.

    Abstract [en]

    This article is an examination of what consequences our passion for critical research has had on our relation to Gender Studies as a discipline. The examination begins with the exclusion from, and escape from, another discipline, to the space and possibilities offered by Gender Studies. This move is, however, also an escape into a new discipline and a new order of normativities. We move on to identifying these normativities: 1) Gender Studies as constituted through a compromise with research ideals, where, for example, the concept gender (genus) is depicted as more inclusive than other concepts, and Gender Studies as less critical and political than Feminist Studies, 2) the dogmatism of sisterhood, as an identity based limitation for research, and 3) the constant mix-up with, and adaptation to, both governmental gender equality politics and activist organisations outside the university. In order to exist, Gender Studies has, in some way or another, compromised with all three of these normativities. We do not assume that this development is automatically bad or good – the normativities do not always reinforce each other, incongruences and gaps sometimes appear when they meet, and a compromise also implies that there still remains something of that which is ‘other’, of that which was ‘too much’ and had to be compromised. However, for the moment they seem to interact with a neo-liberal governmentality that restructures politics, activist demands, and identifications as well as research focus and university organisation. Hence, we see a need for a re-organisation of academic feminism, using Gender Studies as a platform, but constituted by neither the traditional object of study (“women/gender”) nor the idea of infinite inclusion and flexibility (“intersectionality”). Instead we propose that passion for critical research (including responsibility of that research), organised around the untimely idea of a non-competitive collegium, constitutes the guiding rules for a non-nostalgic and non-identical academic feminism.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this essay is to explore if and in that case how the children’s gender constitute in how the teachers address the children in a pre-school in Sweden. According to the Swedish law of gender equality everybody in the business world should work for equally community this means also pre-school.

    The questions I going to use in this essay are:

    Does gender constitute a significant factor when the teachers address the children and if so, in what way?

    How do the teachers verbally address the children?

    Is there a difference between the daily run of things and when the children play?

    To answer these questions I chose to observe how the teachers address to children while playing and also the daily run of breakfast, gathering and snacks. The material for my own study consists of 8 observations each day and 2 days on each unit and I also observe the daily run 2 days on each unit.

    I have come to find that the children’s gender have some significant for the conversations on this pre-school. The observations reveal that the teachers mostly use a positive conversational tone to bought girls and boys. It has further shown that it is a difference between the conversation that takes place during the daily run and during the play. During the play the possibility of conversation and the topics are more free and easy then during the daily run activities, which matter.

    Mobbning av icke-heterosexuella i skolan: En empirisk undersökning med exempel på elever som p.g.a. sin sexuella läggning är mobbade och lärarnas motverkan mot detta.2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about non-heterosexual* youths experiences of being harassed in the school because of their sexual disposition and the youths experiences of what their teachers do to counteract this harassment. The study was carried out in two parts: pre study and main study. In the pre study, the students in the teacher program were asked for their opinion about the education they receive on dealing with harassments of non-heterosexual pupils. In the pre study, 11 students in the teacher program were contributing, all of them were women. In the main study, experiences and opinions from non-heterosexual youths who are or have been harassed in the school were studied. The pupil’s experiences of harassment and their understanding of how their teachers are helping them with the harassment problem were studied. The pupils also gave some suggestions of how the situation can be improved. In the main study 12 youths, 5 girls and 7 boys with different sexual disposition who studies in intermediate level up to upper secondary school in Karlstad contributed. Some of these youths are members in RFSL- ungdom and some are not. The study shows that (1) all the non-heterosexual youths has experience of harassment in school because of their sexual disposition, (2) all the contributing youths consider that the teachers is not making enough or nothing to counteract the harassment of non-heterosexual pupils. What it depends on, from the perspective of the youths, can be read in the result part of this study and (3) the youths have their own suggestions of the solution of the problem.

    (*Non-heterosexual is sometime also called HBT-people, i.e. homo-, bi- or transsexual people)

    Alcohol and Femininity in Sweden c. 1830-1922: An Investigation of the Emergence of Separate Drinking Standards for Men and Women2015In: Substance Use & Misuse, ISSN 1082-6084, E-ISSN 1532-2491, Vol. 50, no 6, p. 736-746Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses changing views about gender and drinking in Sweden c. 1830-4922. The author posits that the emergence of bourgeois morals in the 19th century were associated with a decline in the tolerance for female alcohol consumption, and also shows how the values, norms, and activities of the temperance movement interconnected with religion and notions of purity. Yet, in spite of hardening attitudes against women's drinking, alcohol remained integral in Swedish upper-class women's lives. The results are based on a qualitative study of Swedish women's diaries. The study was financed by the Swedish Research Council, 2009-2012. Study limitations are also noted.
