    Skapande av tid och mening: En socioexestentiellanalys2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna avhandling handlar om människor som ökat sin fria tid. Syftet med studien är att öka förståelsen förÊvarför människor vill ha mer fri tid, vilka möjligheter de har att förverkliga denna önskan och vilka konsekvenserna blir. Empirin tolkas med hjälp av en socioexistentiell tolkningsram som innebär att människors intentioner förstås i relation till deras faktiska möjligheter och att en existentiell dimension har inkluderats. Studien visar på varierande intentioner som exempelvis en önskan om att söka möjligheter att skapa och friheten att styra sin fria tid. Möjligheterna att öka tiden påverkas av såväl mod som boendekostnader och konsekvenserna av mer fri tid är bland annat en ökad inre och yttre frihet. Människornas önskan om mer fri tid och svårigheterna att öka sin fria tid förstås som en diskrepans mellan individernas önskningar och samhällets faktiska struktur och/eller kulturellt acceptabla värderingssystem

    Ålderism - ett fruktbart begrepp?2008In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, no 2, p. 18-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ageism has gained growing attention in Sweden the last decade. Age is even discussed to be included in the discrimination legislation. Still, the concept has not been of much sociological interest. This article is an overview of the concept ageism and how it has been discussed in social gerontology. In the article it is argued that the overall focus has been on overtly expressions such as stereotypes and discriminating behavior while underlying structures and processes of power and power relations have not got enough attention. As a result the concept of ageism has become limited as an analytical tool. Thus, in order to develop the potential of the concept it seems crucial to explicate and theorise power relations. To accomplish this goal, i.e. to focus on how age based power relations are negotiated, challenged and reproduced in processes and institutionalised practise it is suggested that ageism might have to be complemented with other concepts, such as age coding.

    Singlehood spaces: An investigation into the constitutive arrangement of two Swedish spaces for singles2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is often said to be one of the countries with the highest share of single households. Today, different single sexualities are emerging, some being co-produced together with different on- and offline spaces. By comparing two of these spaces, one offline and one online, we show how sexuality and space are connected. We also suggest a number of concepts to help in the further investigation of such interrelations. In particular, on the ground of our data, we wish to promote the combination of Actor-Network Theory's concept of arrangement and the more generally used concept of situation, found in Adele Clarke's Situational Analysis and the Sociology of Emotions.

    We combine observations from two related single events and on-line interviews with members of a Swedish dating site. In the analysis, we use extensive coding and content analysis. The logic behind our comparison should be understood as what George Marcus has called juxtaposition: finding real world connection between cases and increasing the stringency of theoretical concepts by describing similarities and dissimilarities between them.

    We conclude that there is a utopian character to both cases. Single sexuality is portrayed as a transition period of many sexual choices, but these choices are not part of everyday life. The spaces investigated are arranged to emphasize their distinction from the everyday and to maximize the number and variety of choices. But while the single events emphasize commitment to the moment and intimate and intense (if short) meetings, the dating site arrangements encourage reflexive distance.

    En informationsfilm för Kils slakteri: ”Det är skillnad på kött och kött”2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Kils slakteri is a slaughterhouse with great traditions in Värmland. They have grown slow and steady since the reopening in 2010 and they deliver meat products to an array of different supermarkets and institutions, as well as to regular households through their own charcuterie. The company possesses strong values and works towards maintaining a local profile, in which they strive to create transparency through the whole process from breeding of the animals to the finished product for the consumer, which differ from the competitors in the business.

     

    We have been given the task to create an infomercial that will meet Kils slakteris wishes with the film, which is to increase the consumer’s awareness, promote the companies values and reach out with their message to their audiences in the most appealing way possible. The end product will be displayed on their homepage and will be approximately 6 minutes long.

     

    We made a survey with 100 respondents from our clients target audience. The purpose with the survey was not to estimate which people who are a part of the target audience, but to gain knowledge about what the target audience thought they knew about meat production and consumption, as well as to get an insight to what attitudes they had towards the meat industry. We used the answers from the survey as an indicator to which factors that needed most attention in the film.

     

    The infomercial is divided in to four different scenes that are linked together in a chronological order. Each scene concerns one of four main topics which are: breeding, tenderization of meat, sales/costumer contact and last the cooking of meat. As a viewer you get to tag along a journey through the whole process, which is narrated by a female voice who also fills the purpose of binding the scenes together. Two representatives from the slaughterhouse is also present in the film to act as themselves as they talk about the main topics in detail. The first scene takes place at the farm, the second in the slaughter house, the third in the charcuterie and the fourth and last is a cooking scene in a backyard.

    Gender and Change: Power, Politics and Everyday Practices2012Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on gender aims to contribute towards a better society with the help of scientific tools. Change is therefore a key concept in gender studies. With a wide range of theoretical frameworks, methodological approaches and empirical materials from Sweden, Norway and Iceland, this book investigates how gender relations are shaped, reproduced, and challanged. Collectively, the papers in this volume point to where we are heading in terms of gender relations. Where are the seeds to change, and how does power make possible or impede on change?

    Game, set, macho: En studie om unga manliga tennisspelares konstruktion av maskulinitet2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie är att undersöka föreställningarna kring och konstruktionen av maskulinitet bland unga män inom tennissporten, för att se om och i så fall hur ett särskilt mansideal framträder. För att uppfylla detta syfte har fem frågeställningar formulerats:

    1. Hur görs maskulina och feminina genuspositioner?

    2. Vad lägger informanterna i begreppen män och manlighet, vad exkluderas?

    3. Finns det en hierarkisk ordning mellan olika sorters män/manligheter, och hur ser i så fall denna ut?

    4. Förekommer det "queerläckage" – det vill säga, finns inom konstruktionen av maskulinitet ett utrymme för användning av element som är feminint kodade, genusneutrala eller obestämbara? Hur tar sig i så fall detta "queerläckage" uttryck?

    5. Hur används olika typer av rekvisita vid konstruktionen av maskulinitet?

    En empirisk undersökning bestående av två observationer och en gruppintervju har genomförts. Studiens informanter består av unga manliga tennisspelare i åldern sexton till tjugofyra år. I bearbetningen av materialet har jag utgått från min teoretiska referensram, som består av Connells (1999) maskulinitetsteorier, Butlers (2005) queerteoretiska begrepp, Goffmans (2009) dramaturgiska perspektiv och Hochschilds (2003) emotionsteorier. Studiens resultat visar att informanternas konstruktion av maskulinitet inom tenniskontexten influeras av deras uppfattningar om manlighet och kvinnlighet på ett mer allmänt plan. Den manlighet som ur de kollektiva uppfattningarna upphöjs till en hegemonisk position är fysiskt stark, tuff och aggressiv, vilket tar sig uttryck i spelstil och uppvisad attityd på banan. Kvinnor, homosexuella män och barn utgör en feminiserad position – en slags antiidentitet gentemot vilken manlighet konstrueras som en motpol. Heterosexualiteten är obligatorisk och "bög" används som ett skällsord och betecknar inte bara en sexuell läggning utan även de män som misslyckas med sin genuskonstruktion och ägnar sig åt kvinnligt kodade praktiker. Kroppsspråk, diskursiva praktiker och rekvisita används för att styra de intryck man överför till omgivningen för att ge bilden av sig själv som överensstämmande med den typ av maskulinitetsgörande som äger störst legitimitet i sammanhanget. Ett visst utrymme att utmana genusgränserna finns, och detta utrymme bestäms av status och hur stark position man innehar i gruppen.

    Kommunikation och politiska beslut i säkerhetsarbete utifrån LSO: En studie av IDA-pilot och jämförelsekommuner -Slutrapport inom KOBS-projektet2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet Kommunikation och beslut i kommunalt säkerhetsarbete (KOBS) har bedrivits under åren 2007-2009 och består av två delstudier riktade mot olika forskningsområden. Den ena delstudien behandlar frågor om kommunikativa processer i kommunalt säkerhetsarbetet. Den andra delstudien följer forskningsmässigt hur idéer om säkerhetsarbete sprids till politiska beslutsprocesser på kommunal nivå.

    Rapporten redovisar resultatet av studierna och belyser teoretisk och empiriskt betydelsen av kommunikationens organisering och meningskapandet i den kommunala organisationen. Resultaten belyser även hur det webbaserade informationssystemet IDA (indikatorer, data och analys för skydd mot olyckor) och lagen ”Lag om skydd mot olyckor” påverkat institutionaliseringen och diffusionen av idéer om skydds- och säkerhetsarbete i kommunerna.

    Studien är genomförd på uppdrag av dåvarande Statens Räddningsverk, numera Myndigheten för samhällsskydd och beredskap. Vår ambition har varit att belysa hur kunskap och idéer används och sprids inom de organisationer som hanterar kommunalt säkerhetsarbete inom ramen för Lagen om skydd mot olyckor.

    Kommunikation och politiska frågor i det kommunala skydds- och säkerhetsarbetet: Halvtidsrapport inom KOBS-projektet2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Rescue Services Agency (SRSA) develops during the years 2007-2008 a new webbased information system: Indicators, data and analysis for protection against accidents (IDA). In connection with IDA an assignment was formulated with instructions to illustrate the followingup and evaluation parts for further activities in the municipalities considering communication and decision about the protection against accidents. The project Communication and decision in municipal protection and safety work (KOBS) will be persued during the years 2007-2009 and consists of two sub studies directed at different research areas. The first sub study treated issues about communicative processes in municipal security work. The second sub study scrutinized how ideas about safety work are disseminated to political decision-making processes on a municipal level. The report shows the result of the first data collecting during the summer and autumn 2007 within both sub studies and describes the conditions before the IDA-system was completely introduced and came into use.

    The study has a quasi-experimental design. Five IDA-pilot municipalities/local authorities have been selected and in order to enable analyses a comparison group of five coordinated municipalities/local authorities has been created. Methods used are interviews, video recordings of discussion groups and analyses of documents.

    The results from the first sub study show that a communicative infrastructure with a relatively similar look has been developed in the municipalities. It consists mainly of: A) The responsibility for the task is political and the municipal council is the definite decision forum. B) The responsibility for writing the action plan is delegated to a professional official often directly subordinated to the municipal executive board. C) When the municipality is part of a local authority formation the local authority mostly takes responsibility for the Civil protection Act against Accidents action program for rescue service. D) Mostly there is a lower hierarchical ranged political board or steering group in the municipality that makes priorities. E) There are risk management groups in most municipalities and these groups take active part in the action plan work.

    Within the Civil protection Act area work is distinctly overall administrative while the overall sector work is more obvious within the area extraordinary incidents. The new areas in the action plans are mainly issues about nature, climate and environment.

    The second sub study investigates if and in that case how municipal protection and safety work are discussed on a political municipality level. Minutes from the municipal council and the municipal executive board in seven municipalities have been studied during the period January 2006 - June 2007 based on sixteen selected words/key concepts. The municipal safety work is mainly an issue for the municipal council/municipal executive board when laws and ordinances call for it. Emergency management and the organizing of rescue service, budget and regulations are frequent in the minutes as decisions to elect and dismiss members. Some issues are also successfully spread via diffusion – road safety and security for elderly people. Road safety dominates the political safety work in the municipalities. All municipalities also discuss a kind of help at home for the elderly, called “Fixar-Malte”. Malte is described as how to reduce the number of falling accidents among elderly and increase their security. Elderly and children are frequent in the municipal safety work. Even women´s safety is at some occasion discussed in five municipalities while politicians´ safety is dealt with in three municipalities. The municipal protection work is mainly about nature conservation and environmental protection. How explicit nature conservation and environmental protection involves the municipal rescue service varies however.

    A Nice Place: The Everyday Production of Pleasure and Political Correctness at Work2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation investigates heterosexed reality as an ongoing accomplishment by the members at a workplace. Observations were carried out sporadically for two years at a museum. During this period twelve formal interviews, fifteen informal interviews, three formal group interviews and three informal group interviews were also conducted. The study rests on an ethnomethodological understanding of how reality and order is achieved by actors in interaction through the use of ethnomethods, such as common sense. Order is produced in a number of situations and it is situations, as locations of shared practices, which are primarily focused.

    It is concluded that the members try to, in different ways, realise the museum as a nice place. The concept of straight-framing is introduced to describe one of the pleasure procedures performed by the members in order to generate good mood, solidarity and familiarity in everyday working life. To successfully straight-frame situations, the members must utilise the heterosexual matrix and produce themselves and others as intelligibly sexed beings, belonging to either the category women or men, and as relatable to people of the other sex in couple-like and/or sexualised (explicitly or implicitly) ways. Three different forms of straight-framing are distinguished; direct, mock direct and indirect.

    The members also routinely realise the museum as a nice place by creating a discourse of political correctness. The easiest way to produce and use this discourse appears to be to talk about gender equality. In conversations about gender equality women and men are commonsensically turned into a standardised relational pair and this is referred to as the body count routine. While the body count routine makes the issue of gender equality intelligible for the members and enables them to come across as politically competent, it also provides them with an opportunity to organise the working units at the museum. Sex-mixed units can be placed above non-mixed in a moral hierarchy.

    Gender differences in time pressure and health among journalists2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims. The first study aimed to shed light on were differences between male and female journalists, between journals of different size and between editorial work in a big city and a provincial town. We have been studying whether, and in that case how, working conditions and health for women and men have been influenced by the integration of the sexes that has taken place parallel to technological development. In the follow-up study we focussed on gender differences in time pressure and health.

    Methods. Questionnaires for self-evaluation, interviews and observation were used as methods to analyze working conditions, workload and health. One big, one medium sized and one small daily newspaper were included in the study. A total of 317 answered the questionnaire, while in two of the news offices 24 journalists were interviewed and observed with regard to their working conditions and health.

    Results. As a profession journalism has for long been male dominated, but is now showing a bigger share of women. Between 1989 and 2000 the share of women rose from 34 to 47 percent and the increase seems to be going on. Through this, the journalist profession has become one of the few professions with a balanced gender division. Todaý's situation is according to our study to a certain degree still marked by a traditional gender order.

    Time pressure was surprisingly identical irrespective of financial status, number of employees and circulation. Pressure to produce quickly was as high for the slimmed organisation of the big city newspaper, which was competing on a tough media market, as for the small newspaper that struggled for survival. High pressure in time indicated high demands.

    Evaluations of stress levels in our study indicated co-variations with the level of demands in this respect. The connection between stress evaluation and ailments were a rather general feature for all the three editorial offices and most blatantly for the women. Health results were different for women and men. The work situation did not explain the entire difference in health outcomes. What also seemed to be important was that the physical design of the workplaces was not adapted to women to a sufficient degree.

    In the follow-up study we found that 62 percent of the women and 54 percent of the men reported that time pressure had increased during the last two years. Work load had increased more among the women (72 percent compared to 39 percent among the men) and the women we more restricted to their computer work than the men and it had increased from the initial study. The women also reported more musculoskeletal and psychosocial symptoms than the men and an increase from the first study was seen.

    Conclusions. Journalists report high pressure in time in their job and our study indicates that more women than men experience increase in time pressure during the last couple of years. The female journalists also reported more musculoskeletal as well as psychosocial symptoms than the male journalists.

    'More real than reality': A study of Voice Hearing2008In: International Journal of Social Welfare, ISSN 1369-6866, E-ISSN 1468-2397, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 365-373Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hearing voices can be considered as elusive or illusory hallucinations in the sense that they are perceptions that have no external reason or even that they are divorced from reality. The aim of this article is to describe how participants in different focus groups account for and understand their voice-hearing experiences. The study shows that voice hearing can be such an overwhelming experience that it can even be experienced as ‘more real than reality’. Voices are strong and powerful experiences that sometimes convey memories from the past or difficulties that the voice hearer would prefer to forget but in fact has had to confront. The voices also influence how the voice hearer sees his or her future. This study contributes to our knowledge of the world and language of voice hearers from the perspective of social work.
