    Italiensk-amerikaner i Bostons North End: En omanalys av William Foote Whytes fältanteckningar2022 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I sin nya bok gör Oscar Andersson en omanalys av William Foote Whytes fältanteckningar från hans klassiska fältstudie Street Corner Society från 1943, som utspelar sig i Bostons stadsdel North End under andra hälften av 1930-talet. Att få tillgång till en annan antropologs kompletta samling fältanteckningar är unikt. Antropologer ser fältanteckningar som sin intellektuella egendom och det finns ingen utomstående som kan kräva att få se dem. Forskning har visat att antropologer oroar sig över att fältanteckningarna – vid en jämförande analys – inte validerar etnografin, vilket gör att de ogärna lämnar ut dem. Bill Whyte var tvärtom en tillitsfull person som såg det som en självklarhet att efterkommande forskargenerationer skulle få tillgång till hans ocensurerade fältanteckningar. Whytes oredigerade fältanteckningar och banbrytande observationsmetoder analyseras ingående i denna studie av Oscar Andersson. Bill Whytes fältanteckningar har använts analytiskt för att historiskt beskriva och teoretiskt förklara italiensk-amerikaners kultur i Bostons North End i teman som både överlappar och skiljer sig från Whytes. Dessa teman binds samman av rumsliga och temporala grupphändelser, och innefattar den stora depressionen under 1930-talet, emigrationen från Italien till USA, stadsdelen North Ends befolkningsutveckling, lokalpolitik, organiserad brottslighet, arbetsmarknadskonflikter, social rörlighet och gruppkonflikter som kunde blossa upp i det gäng av cornerboys, som Bill Whyte umgicks med i North End. En händelse som också ingående återberättas är mobiliseringen av invånarna för att protestera mot stadsdelens sanitära och hygieniska missförhållanden som befolkningen tvingades leva under.

    As I Journey Along: A Ghanaian's Perception Of Life In The Diaspora2005Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The book gives accounts of the forces that drive many young people to migrate from the less Developed World, especially Ghana, to come and live in the Diaspora. Coming to live, work or pursue some goals in the Diaspora is for many young Ghanaians, for example, the ultimate goal worth striving after. In Ghana and in most Third World Countries, many people's perception of better life in the Diaspora is shared by many parents and some respectable people, a fact that also reinforces the drive to migrate to the Diaspora. That alone can help them develop their potentialities. But the journey is tough, full of adventure for all. How many have experienced the life in the Diaspora and how many feel detached from their place of birth, Ghana, are among the major themes discussed in this book. People that have migrated from their countries to seek fortunes or whatever in the Diaspora, Potential travellers and politicians in poor countries stand to gain from the experiences shared in this book.

    Doing autobiographies: a critical approach2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    My point of departure is that feminist research has to have an emancipatory ambition. This paper aims to reflect around self biography as method. Biographies are testimonies from different angels of experiences, including testemonies. Postcolonial feminist theories criticism about west biographical texts focus on a critique in that often use biographical works, which are excluded from the History. On the other way highlight this standpoint on differential self biographies, as a form into positioning on marginalization, and in different contexts. The ambition with this paper is to analyse a couple self biographies written by immigrants. But when I develop the analysis of it’s I will involve my voice in the middle of their. It because, my ambition is to highlight contextualize these works in a critical understanding about “situated knowledge”.

    “Kan man hitta den där balansen och rida på den här distansvågen istället för att dränkas av den så kommer manatt må väldigt mycket bättre.”: En kvalitativ studie om medarbetares upplevelser av distansarbetet under Covid-19-pandemin2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor's thesis in sociology discusses the impact COVID-19 has had on the workplace and how companies have adapted to teleworking. The study is based on four semi-structured interviews conducted at a Swedish pharmaceutical company. The aim of this qualitative study is to gain a deeper understanding of how teleworking was perceived by employees at the company. The study aims to get an idea of what challenges and opportunities the employees experienced during their telework and what their perspective is on telework in the future. Thus, the study aims to contribute with knowledge that may be relevant for the company in this study, as well as other companies interested in organizing their work remotely in the future. The study's theoretical framework is based on Manuel Castells theory of Network Society, Robert Karasek and Töres Theorell's Demand-Control-Support model and Peter Balu's interpretation of Rational choice theory. These theories complement each other in the study from a micro-meso-macro perspective. The results indicate that teleworking creates increased flexibility and freedom, which can increase productivity. The results of the study also indicate that teleworking currently doesn’t satisfy employees' organizational and social work environment sufficiently.

    ICT use in the flesh: How to academically represent the sensuous work of the human body2011In: Current Issues in European Cultural Studies: ACSIS Conference 2011, Norrköping, 15–17 June 2011, Norrköping: Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS), Linköpings universitet , 2011, p. 90-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is stated that the use of ICTs has become integrated as a fundamental part of the infrastructure in contemporary ever-day social life. For instance, new ICT products play a decisive role for the performance of adolescents’ peer-group communication; it has literally become part of a “way of living” (Christensen & Røpke, 2010). In this paper I explore how a sensory ethnographical approach (Pink, 2009) may contribute to interesting perspectives on the construction of this “new normality”. Thinking of use of new media as a kind of work that implies cultural production, i.e. activities that include both consumption and production of web-based user-generated content, gives an opportunity to place the work (agency) of the human body in the nexus of inquiry. The questions I will discuss in this paper originates from research I have done on teenage use of on-line photo diaries; How are our senses attuned toward cultural forms of participation in web-based activities that have turned into routine? How can this kind of sensory data be represented through sequential art?

    Re-Framing Ai-driven Futures of the first and last mile of travel: A design ethnographic approach2022Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we discuss how a design ethnographic approach enables anthropological perspectives to become part of a co-creative multi-stakeholder innovation project across public and private actors. We advocate for a design ethnography that is helpful in imagining, anticipating and realising possible futures by playing in people’s everyday lives rather than playing against technology- and capital-driven innovation agendas (Pink et al. 2022, Smith et al. 2016). Based on a collaborative research and innovation project on future AI-driven mobilities (AHA 2018-2022), we explored the first and last mile of travel that people do when they leave their homes in two diverse suburban communities in southern Sweden. Through empirical examples we will demonstrate how materials from ethnographic fieldwork, in combination with design-oriented multi-stakeholder workshops, were used to co-create insights about what could be worst and best case scenarios for these communities. Through this process we could reframe what is commonly portrayed by both public and private actors as utopian design visions of efficient and individualised mobility, into questionable and contrasting narratives about the fabric of our social lives and decision-making processes in everyday rural and urban communities. We will end with presenting the pedagogical implications of this design ethnographic process - how such reframings can be steered into creating viable co-learning routes for real-life based, ethical and people-centered design opportunities and future transport mobilities.

    Gift and exchange in the reciprocal regime of the Miskito on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua, 20th century2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is about cultural change in a local Miskitu community on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua, which began when communal property started to be used for both food gifts and market exchange as a result of increasing commercial exploitation. The author explores a contradiction that developed in the economic system during the 20th century. Between 1860 and 1960 the Atlantic Coast was an economic enclave. Men worked as wage labour at foreign companies, and sent home money and purchased goods to women who worked in subsistence agriculture. Communal property was reserved for consumption and food gifts, and there was a stable coexistence of long-term gift and short-term exchange. But after 1960 a commercial exploitation of communal property began that competed with the custom of food gifts in the 1970s, and led to over-exploitation of lobster and turtle. This development was interrupted during the 1980s - the decade of the Sandinista revolution - , but continued after the 1990s. Population increase, external exploitation and few wage labour opportunities have increased the pressure on communal property, and threaten to intensify the contradiction.

    "Everyone can play football no matter where they come from": Discourses in open sport activities for newly arrived children and teenagers2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent international crises has brought about the largest movements of refugees since World War II. There is a need for constructive strategies to manage the challenges the comprehensive migration imposes on society's ability to integrate new residents. Research highlights the central role of civil society organizations to create trust, social networks and civic engagement, i.e. basic conditions for a democratic society (Putnam, 2013; Wijkström, 2012). International research also shows that civil society organizations and the voluntary sector can have a compensating function for economically and socially disadvantaged groups (Field, 2005; Portes & Rumbaut; Zhou & Kim, 2006). Many of these organizations have an ambition to welcome newcomers and offer a social milieu and a meaningful leisure time. Sports are often considered as contributing to the inclusion in society of marginalized groups (Misener & Mason, 2006; Schulenkorf & Edwards, 2012). There is a well-established notion that participation in sports promotes positive identity construction, social inclusion and education for democratic citizenship (cf. Donnelly & Coakley, 2002). However, there is little scientific evidence that sport has the potential to fulfill this role,

    In Sweden a strong emphasis has been put on the role of sports clubs to actively strengthen democratic values and equality. Different governments have provided extensive funding for this purpose, but also for the purpose of including children and youth independent of who they are and were they come from. However, there is little scientific evidence that sport clubs and their activities has the potential to fulfill this role in the community and there is very little systematically developed knowledge of how sporting activities and programs should be designed to achieve positive social outcomes (Rich, Misener & Dubeau, 2015). It is the leaders in the clubs that have the challenging task of ensuring that the objective of developing democratic values, equality, inclusion and well-being come true. Therefore it is important to examine how they understand and translate such normative goals into action.

    The overall aim of the study is to explore the ways in which a sport club, in the context of open sport activities, are working with and potentially promoting values such as intercultural understanding, inclusion and equality among young people, of which a significant part are new arrivals in Sweden.  Research questions focused in this presentation are:

    • How are the open sports activities  organized, and what are their stated purposes?
    • What kind of discourses and practices dominate among the leaders of the open sport activities?

    The sport club studied has since 2010 worked actively with various social projects aiming to promote intercultural understanding, inclusion, gender equality, counteract effects of social and economic segregation and increase young people's agency. The club is a football club which conducts organized football training for children and young people but have also "open sports activities" which is free of charge and requires no registration. Every other Friday arrange the sport club Sporty Friday” where they offer young people the opportunity to try basketball, football, table tennis, boxing, martial arts, wrestling and fencing. They also offer open football for both boys and girls and every week they engage 100-300 children and teenagers. These activities are financially supported by the municipality and are the focus of this research project.

    Reducing the contingency of the world: magic, oracles, and machine-learning technology2022In: AI & Society: The Journal of Human-Centred Systems and Machine Intelligence, ISSN 0951-5666, E-ISSN 1435-5655Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of magic is frequently used to discuss technology, a practice considered useful by some with others arguing that viewing technology as magic precludes a proper understanding of technology. The concept of magic is especially prominent in discussions of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Based on an anthropological perspective, this paper juxtaposes ML technology with magic, using descriptions drawn from a project on an ML-powered system for propulsion control of cargo ships. The paper concludes that prior scholarly work on technology has failed to both define magic adequately and use research into magic. It also argues that although the distinction between ML technology and magic is important, recognition of the similarities is useful for understanding ML technology. © 2022, The Author(s).

    Inne och ute i Malmö: Studier av urbana förändringsprocesser2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This anthology is a result of current research on processes of change in an urban setting. During the last century, Malmö in Southern Sweden has changed from a port for agricultural trade and fishing, to a highly modern, heavy industrialised city, through a severe depression and into an expanding postdindustrial, international town. This rapid change has been a challenge in all the fields that are presented in the book: the identity of the city and its' citizens, the socioeconomic facts, as expressed within the work sector and the housing sector, the ecological effects of former and contemporary green areas, the actual movements and use patterns of citizens in their everyday life, and how the city reshapes its' self reflection on a globalised market. The chapters are written by researchers in the Urban Studies Researcher Network, based on Malmö University, though some colleagues work at Lund University.

    Future Mobility Solutions?2022In: An Anthropology of Futures and Technologies / [ed] D. Lanzeni; K. Waltrop; S. Pink; R.C. Smith, Oxford: Routledge, 2022, p. 138-154Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter outlines and demonstrates a collaborative and interventional design anthropology of emerging technologies, through the example of autonomous driving (AD) cars. AD cars have been framed as solutions to everyday problems within proposals for platform-based future automated mobility systems. However when reframed through the lens of everyday local mobilities these industry driven future visions are revealed to be misaligned with the real priorities of people’s everyday lives. Thus showing how  revealing how the everyday present complicates dominant futures narratives. However, we emphasise that rather than stopping at this critique, we should productively collaboratively engage with city and automotive stakeholders in this field in pedagogies of mutual learning, experimentation, and creativity. To develop our discussion we draw on ongoing conceptualisation and research undertaken over a period of over six years.

    Traditions challenged by transitional change: A study of what can be learned from the overcoming of change in work and other habits by the reindeerherding nomad Dukha community2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Dukha people are nomadic pastoralists who also supplement their income from tourism and their diet from hunting and gathering. The Dukha community has gone through and overcome numerous changes in conditions over the years. Dukha have been forced by the government to leave Mongolia, they have been forced to harvest their own reindeer in great numbers to avoid starving, seen their way through socialism and forced collectivization of all livestock and after that they have handled a quick transition into market economy. In recent years they have been affected by both increasing tourism and national urbanization, two variables that both are creating circumstances which modifies their way of working and living. In the western society we have lately altered our way of working to be more flexible with the ambition to set us more free, yet this has partly resulted in that we create stress among our workers as they no longer can grasp and handle the fine line between free time and work.

    In this thesis I intend to reason about work and the challenges in work for the Dukha people and their community and how we might learn from their working-life and doings and the changes in work that they have gone through. Also, what circumstances created by change can Dukha expect in their near future and how can this be supported and best handled by their outside world. My study was conducted through a participating field study during 45 days among the Dukha families.

    I set out to investigate with the question of study “what can be learned through a working life science perspective from the Dukha community?”. In order to get the answers of these questions I use three core questions that are connected to three themes, work, tourism and sustainability.

    My conclusions are that we have many things to learn from the Dukha community and that the contribution in this thesis is new perspectives on perks and downsides of work without boundaries. Also, I let the Dukha people determine definitions of work and the concept of work using their daily reasons of prioritizing their doings.

    The affective intensities of datafied space2016In: Emotion, Space and Society, ISSN 1755-4586, E-ISSN 1878-0040, Vol. 21, p. 33-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of datafication - which refers to the idea that many aspects of life can be rendered into digital data which can subsequently be analysed and used to understand, predict and guide interventions in society - has been both enthusiastically engaged with and critically deconstructed in recent literatures. In this article, we explore the relevance of datification for understanding the spatiality of everyday life. In doing so, we argue for a refigured concept of datafication through theoretical and empirical scholarship focused on affect. We suggest that a renewed concept of datafication - that is, of datafied space - offers a framework for how we dwell in and move through a world where digital data about humans have an increasing presence. To make our arguments, we offer an account of a recent study of cycle-commuting and self-tracking in Melbourne and Canberra, Australia. We used helmet-mounted action cameras and video interviews in a 'digital sensory ethnography' to explore the entanglement of bodies, bicycles, digital devices, data and affect that shape how people move through and make sense of what we call 'datafied space'. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.
