    The riding school as a site for gender identity construction among Swedish teenage girls2011In: World Leisure Journal, ISSN 0441-9057, E-ISSN 1607-8055, Vol. 53, no 1, p. 42-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on observations and interviews with six teenage girls (age 14–16) currently highly active in a Swedish riding school. Riding is one of the most popular sporting activities among girls in Sweden and riding schools receive financial support from the government to make riding available to everyone. The aim of this paper is to explore how teenage girls construct their gender identity at the stable through the handling of horses and related work in their leisure time. Theoretically, we employ Butler’s (1999) theory of identity, based on social constructivism. The relationships with the horses, the hard work, the unexpected challenges, as well as the friendships among the girls, were found to be essential elements of the stable experience. At the stable, the girls learned to take action, handle risks and take the lead. This created an alternative way of enacting themselves as young females, resulting in an identity based on being independent, competent and powerful. As such, the riding school represents a developmental space where teenage girls can prepare themselves for their future, independent, lives. © 2011 World Leisure Organization.

    Scuba Diving and the "Right Attitude"2009In: World Leisure Journal, ISSN 0441-9057, E-ISSN 1607-8055, Vol. 51, no 3, p. 167-175Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on ethnographic fieldwork on scuba diving, this article explores the social homogeneity characterizing this specific leisure activity regarding questions on how deviance is treated within a group and on what grounds. The consequences of the dangerous context in which the activity is performed on the dyad (one is always diving with a “Buddy”) is analysed with the help of Georg Simmel (1950) and Erving Goffman (1967). The loyalty of the diving companion (the buddy) towards the “right attitude” which governs the activity may be turned against the scuba diver who does not adapt. The buddy is transformed from a friend into an opponent, who, by spreading anecdotes or rumours, questions the character of the scuba diver, which eventually may exclude him or her from the activity. The article also discusses how the “right attitude” in scuba diving is related to the so-called predominant masculine identity (Connell 1995) in a Swedish context.
