    Emotions, Power and Space in the Discourse of ’People of the Real World’2013In: Journal of Political Power, ISSN 2158-379X, E-ISSN 2158-3803, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 419-439Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article investigates the discursive trope of ‘People of the Real World’ (PRW) as it was launched by the leader of the Swedish Christian Democrats, Göran Hägglund, during a political campaign week on the Island of Gotland in 2009. Sociological and cultural theories of local vs. cosmopolitan identity, of emotions, and of space, are used to analyse the speech and a selection of newspaper articles from 2009. The PRW discourse defends local, sedentary communities against globalization and cosmopolitanization. It draws on the collective emotional resources of ‘normals’ as they feel threatened by the social and political advancement of previously marginalized groups, undermining the former group’s power to define social space. It thus contributes to the social and political cultivation of resentment among those who identify with conservative, anti-cosmopolitan values.

    Det sociala livets emotionella grunder2008Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Intresset för att studera den betydelse som känslor har för att förstå sociala företeelser och processer har ökat kraftigt under de senaste 25 åren. Det sker på bred front inom alltifrån psykiatri, management teori och organisationsteori, till socialpsykologi, socialt omsorg och socialt arbete, sociologi och statsvetenskap. Man skulle kunna se denna emotionella vändning som en reaktion på 1900-talets ensidiga fokus på kognition och rationellt handlande, men också som ett uttryck för en tilltagande insikt om att människor är kännande varelser och att det vi känner spelar stor roll för hur vi väljer att handla och för vilka konsekvenser våra handlingar får. Inom samhällsvetenskapen bryts tabut mot emotioner som forskningsområde redan på 1970-talet av bl.a. sociologerna Randall Collins, Arlie Russel Hoc¬schild och Thomas Scheff. På var sitt vis lade de grunden för hur man kan närma sig och förstå känslor och känslors betydelse inom ramen för sociala interaktioner. Alla tre har bidragit med texter till antologin Det sociala livets emotionella grunder, där de ger sina perspektiv på olika aktuella fenomen. I antologin får läsaren dessutom stifta bekantskap med några ledande europeiska emotionssociologer som Jack Barbalet, Charlotte Bloch, Helena Flam och Mary Holmes.

    Förutom att för första gången på svenska introducera den internationella emotionssociologins ledande namn, syftar boken till att presentera inspirerande exempel på tillämpningar av ett emotionsperspektiv i den samhällsvetenskapliga forskningen. Vi vill visa att forskningen om emotioner fyller ett tomrum såväl i förståelsen av människors hälsa och välfärd som i analyser av socialt kapital, status- och maktrelationer och förtryck, liksom i motstånd och social förändring. Texterna i boken behandlar alla dessa områden och belyser situationer både på arbetsplatsen och i privatlivet samt inte minst där dessa sfärer överlappar varandra. De riktar sig till studenter, lärare och forskare inom hela det samhällsvetenskapliga området, men kan också med fördel läsas av yrkesutövare inom socialt arbete, psykiatri, omsorg och omvårdnad, utbildning och personaladministration.

    M4D Overview 1.0: the 2009 Introduction to Mobile for Development2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    M4D Overview 1.0 – the 2009 introduction to mobile for development describes and discusses how mobile devices are used in the developing world to enable economic and technological growth in developin countries. The report presents a broad overview of various reports and studies, ranging from United Nations organisations to reports from mobile operators and producers. These reports outline how developing nations can, and do, use mobile devices to bring essential services, such as medical advice and education, to rural areas.

    Some of the topics covered in M4D Overview 1.0 include descriptions of mobile services, how mobiles are used in everyday life, and factors influencing the acquisition, adoption and usage of mobiles. The report also turns its focus to Africa, and examines numerous reports from e.g. Tanzania. Included in M4D Overview 1.0 is a discussion about why m4d is worth considering, and examples of m4d projects in developing countries.

    M4D Overview 1.0 is intended for a wide reader audience, and is directed to “d-people without m-knowledge” (that is to say, developers without mobile media knowledge), “m-people without m-knowledge” (mobile media experts with no background in the developing world), and newcomers to the field who have neither a development background nor knowledge in mobile media.

    Mobile Supported e-Government Systems: Analysis of the Education Management Information System (EMIS) in Tanzania2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    e-Government systems are considered by both governments and international organisations to improve administration and management. In Tanzania, an e-government system for education administration, EMIS, is partly implemented but shows several limitations. Statistical data is collected but the process is resource demanding and much of the collected data are never put into the system, and therefore remain inaccessible from this electronic system.

    The overall aim of this study is to propose an approach to designing more efficient e-government systems within the education sector. The focus is on public schools. The more specific aim of the present study is to:

    explore more efficient data transfer (faster, more reliable, and potentially less resource demanding) by using mobile telephone technology, especially SMS, as a means for statistical data collection for Tanzanian education management.

    The study is guided by an overall research approach that comprises systems theory and a socio-technical view. This research is performed as a case study, inspired by the ethnographic method and comprises field studies in East Africa. A multi-technique approach is used for empirical data gathering, including literature study, interviews, and direct observations. The analytical process is performed by developing and applying three analytical models:

    • XIF - the eXtended Sustainable ICT Framework  
    • Triple A - Access, Attitude, Awareness
    • Seven Aspects – an Approach Towards Success

    The contributions of this thesis are as follows. A mobile supported SMS-based statistical data collection process employing a blended digital solution is proposed. Likely effects of such a system would be ‘better’ data e.g. less transmission errors, which provides for ‘better’ administration, ‘better’ decision-making, and also provides for transparency. Moreover, it is very likely that the proposed system is significantly less resource demanding than the present system.

    The three analytical models that are developed specifically for this study have generic characters and can be used during the implementation process of other e-government solutions.  The most important part of the contribution is not the technological solution per se; it is the process that foregoes the actual implementation. The proposal departs specifically from the Tanzanian educational context but has implications for e-government systems solutions and information systems implementation in developing countries in general.

    Finally, three overall reflections are made based on the major observations of the research findings: the Double ‘e’ Dilemma, on the problem of prioritising electronics before electricity, the Mobiles to Avoid Mobility paradox, highlighting connectivity before mobility, and the opportunity to use the SMS to Combat Corruption weapon.

    ICT Use in a Rural Zambian Context - Local Conceptions Expressed as Critical Success Factors2004In: Proceedings of the IFIP WG 9.2, 9.6/11.7 Summer School on Risks and Challenges of the Network Society / [ed] Duquennoy, P., Fischer-Hübner, S., Holvast, J., Zuccato, A, Karlstad: Karlstads universitet, 2004, Vol. 2004:35Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study is to contribute to the analysis of the ICT situation in rural Zambia. The study aims to identify Critical Success Factors essential for ICT implementation and use within a district in Zambia. Data was collected during a two-month field study in the eastern part of Zambia. We carried out interviews with people from different areas of activities. The study provides a characterization of the ICT situation in a rural Zambian context based on conceptions expressed in interviews with local people. The factors range from national to local level. Notably, the Critical Success Factors are not limited to technology. In fact, most Critical Success Factors in our study relate to socio-cultural and governmental issues, which need to be addressed before and parallel to technological solutions

    Activity and movements of reintroduced elk in Southeastern Kentucky2005In: Southeastern naturalist (Steuben, Me.), ISSN 1528-7092, E-ISSN 1938-5412, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 365-374Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We assessed daily and seasonal activity and movements of reintroduced elk in eastern Kentucky from March 1999 to November 2000. Elk activity was determined by monitoring radio-transmitter pulse rate changes, and movements were calculated using hourly ground locations. A total of 1469 activity bouts and 1441 locations were collected on 38 and 32 radio-collared elk, respectively. Elk exhibited a tri-modal activity pattern with peaks near dawn, dusk, and midnight. Activity did not differ between seasons, although it was influenced by gender and time of day. Peak movements corresponded with peaks in activity at dawn and dusk, and increased from spring to winter. Elk were more gregarious and visible during the fall and winter, which increased their susceptibility to human disturbance and caused longer movements.

    Innovative packaging for reduction of food waste from producer to consumer2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Increasing population and environmental changes poses a significant pressure on the global food supply chain. With the large quantities of food waste that’s been reported over the past couple of years packaging can play a more significant role in reducing the food wastage. Together with actors along the entire value chain we are developing new innovative packaging solutions to reduce food waste throughout the value chain, from food producers to consumers. The purpose of the study is to design and optimize new packaging system solutions so that no part of the chain is optimized at the expense of any other part. In the fall of 2015 the food wastage was examined in three supply chains, salsa in glass jar (A), rice pudding in plastic packaging (B) and lettuce in plastic packaging (C), by using waste audits in the businesses, collecting, comparing and analyzing data. For consumer insights ethnographic studies was used in ten Swedish households. Interviews have also been conducted with consumers in retail stores. The supply chain study indicates little wastage for A and B and higher for C. Consumer report some handling difficulties with the food packaging and reasons why food is wasted. The main reasons being that the food gets bad, difficulties to empty the packaging and that the amount of food is higher than their needs. A majority of the consumer state that they often view packaging as something unnecessary. Consumers do not give packaging functions many thoughts in general and many have difficulties in judging the packaging functions.

    The forum as a friend: parental mental illness and communication on open Internet forums2015In: Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology, ISSN 0933-7954, E-ISSN 1433-9285, Vol. 50, no 10, p. 1601-1607Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PURPOSE:The aim of this study was to identify how daughters or sons to parents suffering from mental illness perceive their situation. The objective was to provide new knowledge based on what they communicate on open Internet forums.

    METHODS:The sample consisted of forum posts written by individuals who reported that they had mentally ill parents. Data collection comprised 301 comments from 35 forum threads on 5 different Swedish Internet forums, and predetermined inclusion criteria were used. Data were analyzed qualitatively using thematic analysis.

    RESULTS:The analysis generated four themes: "Caregiver burden," "Knowledge seeking," "Support from the forum," and "Frustration and powerlessness over health care." The results showed that parents' mental illness affected the forum writers on several levels, and they often felt stigmatized. The writers often lacked knowledge of their parents' mental illness and sought out Internet forums for information and support from peers in similar situations. The psychiatric care given to the parents was a source of dissatisfaction among the forum writers, who often felt that their parents did not receive adequate care.

    CONCLUSIONS:This study shows that fear of stigmatization and perceived lack of care and support caused forum writers to anonymously seek out Internet forums for information and support from others with similar experiences. The role of social support and the attractiveness of anonymity and availability typical for open Internet forums ought to be considered by health care professionals and researchers when developing new ways for providing support for children or adolescents with a mentally ill parent.

    Spectromicroscopy and Microscopy of the Wide Bandgap Semiconductors GaN and SiC2002Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The research presented in this thesis concerns experimental studies of the surface properties of wide bandgap semiconductors GaN and SiC. GaN and some of the polytypes of SiC have important applications in blue and green emitting diodes.

    In my work on GaN I show the effects of different surface treatments on the surface electronic structure, the surface chemical composition, and morphology. The objective of the different surface treatment methods was to produce a clean surface without destroying the surface electronic structure and original sample morphology. Some of the surface treatments used were sample heating in an ammoniac flux, deposition of gallium on the surface followed by desorption, and ion sputtering. Photoelectron spectroscopy and microscopy techniques were used to determine how the electronic and chemical structure changes, and atomic force and optical microscopy to image the surface. I have found that ammoniac flux anneal, and gallium deposition and desorption is conserving the surface electronic structure but do not removes all of the existing contaminations on the surface after the treatment, mainly carbon and oxygen. The ion sputtering seems to destroy the electronic structure on the surface, but remove the surface contaminations.

    The SiC project was a study to determine the electronic structure of the hydrogenated 3C-SiC(001)-2ú1-H surface. This was done by exposing a SiC surface to excited hydrogen gas, forming a 2ú1-H surface reconstruction, and then study this surface by angle-resolved photoemission. The results also suggest a single Si monolayer termination on the 3C-SiC(001)-c(4ú2) surface.

It shows that the division of actors into dichotomies such as producers€™ and €˜consumers, ˜paying€™ and non-paying€™ customers, and adopters and non-adopters, is based on narrow, unidirectional, transactional, and dyadic views on value creation and delivery. The article highlights the limitations of these views and draws on a service ecosystems perspective and its broader notion of co-created and contextual value to overcome these limitations. More specifically, the article, by connecting two frameworks (markets-as-practice and institutional work), extends a generic actor-to-actor conceptualization of value creation, in showing that all economic and social actors participate in value creation in a fundamentally similar way. That is, they enact value co-creation practices and simultaneously shape these practices by creating, maintaining and disrupting the institutions that guide their (re)enactment. Thus, the article proposes a unified view on actors’ participation in value creation that not only points to the involvement of broader actor categories in value creation and market formation processes, but also provides important strategic implications in the form of a research agenda.

    Abstract [sv]

    Frågor om mångfald ställs på sin spets inom polisen, vars uppdrag är att skydda demokratiska värden och lagar om människors rättigheter. I föreliggande kapitel presenteras hur Polisens officiella mål för mångfald och social jämlikhet bejakas men också äventyras och problematiseras av blivande polisers tolkningar av polisens uppdrag. Mångfald framstår därmed som ett komplext och därtill motsägelsefullt projekt inom svensk polis.

    Ordningsmakter inom ordningsmakten: Diskurskamp, dilemman och motstånd i blivande polisers samtal om mångfald2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis identifies and describes the diversity aspects of police discourse based on the accounts of police trainees in their final year. Specifically, the focus is on culture, religion and ethnicity, and four main questions are addressed: What is said about diversity? How is it articulated? What subject positions are offered and assumed? In what ways are discourses of diversity sustained and challenged?

    The analysis of discourse in use is based on field studies conducted at the Swedish National Police Academy and focus group interviews with police trainees in the educational setting and during their trainee placement period. The analytical concepts of interpretative repertoire, ideological dilemmas, subject positions and discursive devices are employed to identify how different meanings are ascribed to diversity. Three central discourses of diversity are presented: diversity as inescapable difference (a hegemonic practice), diversity as political goal (recognition of diversity) and diversity as potential likeness (regulation of diversity). These are competing discourses on how police officers should be and how their role is understood in relation to a pluralistic society. The study shows that the contradictory diversity discourses reflect a struggle of different ‘us’, which regulates the conception of the ideal police officer, professional conduct and the performance of policing.

    In addition, five dilemmas originating in the tension between the discourses are outlined. Diversity is found to involve ideological dilemmas regarding how policing should be conducted in relation to profiling and social categories, how humour and jargon are viewed and handled, and how lack of knowledge may mean attributing subject positions to others with discriminatory implications. The thesis contributes to showing how diversity discourses reproduce the social order by affirming the social categories that the representatives of diversity are assumed to embody. It closes with a discussion of some practical and theoretical implications of its findings.

    Antarctic Gothic: The Legacy of Poe and Lovecraft2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper argues that when it comes to describing the tradition of speculative writing of the Antarctic, two authors loom large over subsequent productions: Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft. Poe was first to infuse mystery into the Antarctic. Pym and “MS Found in a Bottle,” fashion the Antarctic as a mysterious locale beyond the known. This is picked up a century later in Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, writing in the same imaginative domain as Poe, extending his influence on Antarctic writing into present days. However, Lovecraft takes Poe’s impulse further, envisioning remnants of an alien civilization beneath the ice. Based on these impulses a tradition of Antarctic fiction has developed, where the premise is that beneath the icy surface lies something threatening that will surface. A seminal text in this respect is Campbell’s “Who Goes There?” (1938), which has been filmed twice: as The Thing from Another World (1951) and The Thing (1982), with a prequel also called The Thing (2011). Other movies have explored the Antarctic as mystery as well: X-Files: Fight the Future (1998), Alien Hunter (2003), and AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004). In literature, Poe’s Antarctic tradition is kept alive with Johnson’s Pym (2011), but also in science-fiction with Curran’s The Hive-series (2005-), Grace’s Polar Quest (2003), and Beck’s Beneath the Dark Ice (2011). These have continued the use the motif of buried Antarctic secrets in Poe and Lovecraft’s vein, proving that the region is every bit as mythopoeic as ever.

    “One of the Most Intensely Exciting Secrets”: The Antarctic in American Literature, 1820-18492009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines a small body of 19th-century American literature about the Antarctic: Adam Seaborn's (pseud.) Symzonia (1820), Edgar Allan Poe's "MS. Found in a Bottle" (1833) and The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym (1838), Peter Prospero's (pseud.) "The Atlantis" (1838-39), and James Fenimore Cooper's The Monikins (1835) and The Sea Lions (1849). These were written in a transitional phase in the history of the Antarctic. At the start of the period, the region was almost completely unknown. Towards the end of the period, however, the region had been mapped in its essence, and the existence of an Antarctic continent had been verified. For complex reasons, the region came into cultural focus in the U.S. during the 1820s to 40s, culminating in the first major American scientific expedition in 1838-42 to explore the South Seas and the Antarctic.

    The study is primarily historical, tracing ideas to their historical contexts in order to determine what these authors used the unknown space of the Antarctic for. These texts were written in imaginative response to contemporary notions of the Antarctic, which is reflected in the mode of representation. The literature is in the mode of speculative fiction-most of texts imagining a tropical, inhabited Antarctic-up until the region is explored, at which point it turns to realism. The texts fall into three categories: the utopian, liminal, and realistic. The utopian texts-Symzonia, The Monikins, and "The Atlantis"-are works of social criticism, using the blank space of the Antarctic to treat a diverse range of issues, including politics, evolutionary theories, race, and gender. Poe's "MS" and Pym represent the liminal category; they dramatize the anticipation of an imminent Antarctic discovery, narrating up to a point of revelation, only to stop short. The Sea Lions is the only realistic text, coming after the Antarctic is explored. Here the knowledge of the Antarctic has solidified into the environment we know today, but with religiously symbolical overtones.

    Ecology, Telepathy and Melancholia in John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Handling the Undead2017In: Edda. Nordisk tidsskrift for litteraturforskning, ISSN 0013-0818, E-ISSN 1500-1989, Vol. 104, no 2, p. 145-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nature is omnipresent and ecological questions are often problematized in Gothic fiction produced in the Nordic region during the last two decades. By developing the concept of eco-Gothic in combination with theory related to the concept of the uncanny, this article will discuss how contemporary Gothic texts can be understood as dealing with different notions of nature, place and identity in a time of ecological crisis. The analysis will focus on John Ajvide Lindqvist´s Handling the Undead (2005), a novel that can be understood as dealing with the issue of solidarity with the nonhuman or unhuman other, the undead people who transgress the boundary between life and death, but also with matters of climate and environmental politics. The discussion will be concentrated mainly on three aspects of the novel of relevance to ecology and the uncanny: the depiction of character, place and climate; the motif of mind reading and mind-altering experiences, and the importance of melancholia and death.
