    Att skapa kön: Könsmönster och könsroller i nyskapade förnamn2015In: Innovationer i namn och namnmönster: Handlingar från NORNA:s 43:e symposium i Halmstad den 6–8 november 2013 / [ed] Emilia Aldrin, Linnea Gustafsson, Maria Löfdahl & Lena Wenner, Uppsala: Norna-förlaget , 2015, p. 36-52Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish language conventionally separates female and male first names respectively. Previous research from Sweden, as well as other cultures, shows that first names for girls and boys are chosen in partly separate ways with a desire for separate characteristics and structures, in a way that often contributes to traditional gender stereotyping. When parents choose to create a completely new name for the child, they have an opportunity to use new structural and semantic patterns and thus may negotiate the traditional gender boundaries. This article investigates newly created first names in Sweden in order to explore to what extent and in what ways parents do this. The data consists of 226 newly created first names registered by SCB (Statistics Sweden) for children born in 2012. The overall conclusion is that the newly created names generally still express gender and recreate stereotypical gendered patterns contributing to symbolic dominance. When gender negotiation occurs, it is primarily in boys’ names.

    Vad säger mitt namn om mig?: En folkonomastisk studie av vuxnas syn på relationen mellan namn och identitet2017In: Norna-rapporter, ISSN 0346-6728, no 96, p. 21-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to study how Swedish adults conceptualize the relationship between their name and identity and how their views relate to scientific theories. It also discusses to what extent the relation between name and identity changes throughout life and which social factors may influence this. The data consists of 173 written survey answers, including both highly structured answers and freely written comments. Perspectives from folk onomastics, sociocultural identity theory and psychological theories life span identity are combined in the analysis. Results indicate that most people do not experience that their name reveals anything about their identity, however a third of the participants do see such a relation. This is often conceptualized as a process and includes both personal and social identity traits. A third of the participants further perceive that this relationship has changes throughout life and basing on these results the article suggests a tentative model of the life development of name identity through certain phases.

    Abstract [en]

    Innovations in names and name patterns was the theme of a Nordic Symposium held in Halmstad in November 2013. The symposium was arranged by Halmstad University in collaboration with NORNA. The proceedings present 20 symposium papers. They offers insights into names in multicultural environments, changes in the gender marking of first names, introduction of new names in the Swedish name day calendar, the role of names in literature, as well as emergence of new name patterns in place names, personal names, names of animals, planes, ships etc. The proceedings cover a large time span from iron age to contemporary time and deal with names from different Nordic countries as well as Germany. Several articles also present new theories and methods within the field of onomastics.

    Filming a New Earth: Ecopolitical Imagination in Cinema and Deleuze's Geophilosophy of Utopia2017In: ACSIS 2017: Sessions, Panels & Abstracts, 2017, p. 7-7Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the concept of utopia in Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy and its significance for cinema, placing his and Félix Guattari’s “geophilosophy” in the context of posthumanist ecocriticism. It relocates the notion of utopia from out of a paradigm of political fiction and speculations of a possible social progress, towards Deleuze & Guattari’s ideas of a geography and topology of time as conditions for creative thought. Considering the importance of the concepts of becoming and virtuality in this philosophy, a utopian image is no mere speculation or representation, but a force of creation. Deleuze’s notion that philosophers and artists share the task of resisting the present in creatively thinking “a new people” and “a new earth” can be developed to view film as a medium for re-imagining nature, creating a new set of earth-images or geosigns for future thought.

    Läsfrämjande, forskning och kompetensutveckling i Halland2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hösten 2015 blev Regionbibliotek Halland kontaktad av två forskare från Halmstad högskola för en första diskussion om eventuella samarbeten. Och vi behövde inte sitta många minuter tillsammans förrän Anna Fåhraeus, lektor i engelska och litteraturvetenskap, Jonas Asklund, lektor i litteraturvetenskap och vi från regionbiblioteket insåg att vi hade många gemensamma frågor som vi ville studera och gå vidare med. Regionbibliotekets goda erfarenhet att samarbeta med forskare utanför professionen har varit en drivande kraft. Att låta någon som inte är färgad av biblioteksvärlden reflektera över vårt arbete har tidigare visat sig vara lyckosamt. Anna och Jonas förankring i lärarutbildningen var en annan god grund för samarbete; bibliotekarieyrket och läraryrket har överlappningar som vi fortfarande är dåliga på att ta tillvara.

    Regionbiblioteket hade redan ett stort projekt på gång tillsammans med samtliga folkbibliotek i Halland. Folkbibliotekschefsgruppen hade initierat ett utbildningspaket för alla anställda kring litteratur och läsning – en insats som i synnerhet Eiler Jansson, utvecklingsledare på Regionbiblioteket höll samman. Vi bestämde nu att Halmstad högskola skulle gå in i denna satsning som föreläsare, följeforskare och samtalspartners.

    Efter denna dag föreslog de båda forskarna att de skulle gå vidare med en enkät samt en del djupintervjuer för att bättre fånga hur biblioteksanställda arbetar med läsfrämjande i Halland men också att försöka fånga upp ytterligare insatser som behöver göras.

    Det känns viktigt att påpeka att forskning utförd i sådan nära relation som i detta fall ändå är självständig. Detta är inte en uppdragsforskning där beställaren har en ungefärlig bild av vad som ska undersökas. Tvärtom, frågeställningen var ett gemensamt beslut, en färdriktning som skulle gynna både professionen och akademin. Anna Fåhraeus och Jonas Asklund presenterar här sina egna analyser och resultat. Regionbiblioteket har stått till tjänst med bakgrundsmaterial, samordning och utgivning.

    Rapporten ger svar på hur bibliotekarier i Halland ser på sitt läsfrämjande arbete och förslag på insatser som behöver göras. Den har gett oss mycket att tänka på och folkbibliotekschefsgruppen kommer att tillsammans med regionbibliotekarien och Halmstad högskola bestämma hur vi ska gå vidare. För gå vidare vill vi. Tillsammans.

    The significance of nicknames in the making and performance of identity: The examples youth and gender identity

    This article analyses the nickname’s significance for the construction of identity. The issues I specifically discuss are as follows: 1) How does the nickname contribute in the construction of identity? 2) How is youth and gender identity constructed through nicknames? My approach to identity is based on a constructivist perspective where the starting-point is that the identity is originally individual but also perceived as collective in a group constructing process where nicknames can be used to announce inclusion or exclusion of the group.

    In the analysis, I am using 198 nicknames that are collected through interviews and questionnaires. Name-bearers usually get their nicknames when they are children or adolescents. A gender perspective on the issue shows that it is more common for women to get nicknames at the age of 0–5 years, while men get, to a greater extent, their nicknames at the age of 11–15 years. However, it is more common that men’s nicknames contain different features which reinforce traditional gender roles. The conclusion is that the nickname can be an important linguistic resource for constructing identity.

    Moderna vardagliga binamn i Sverige2016Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study is to examine the modern everyday use of nicknames. The study is based on two different types of material – questionnaires and interviews. In contrast to previous nicknames-studies in Sweden, this study considers, not only different sorts of nicknames, even though this has been taken into consideration, but the function of the nicknames in everyday communication. The observations are based on the name-bearer’s own estimation of his or her nickname(s). The theoreti- cal framework is a combination of onomastics, sociolinguistic, identity-theoretical, and interactional theories. The results demonstrate that the use of nicknames is an important social act that can be either positive or negative for the nickname-users. Six naming environments have been identified for the nicknames’ occurrence: childhood family, childhood friends, sports context, adulthood friends, partner and other. It appears that nicknames are co-creators of a gender and a youth identity. Three different functions for nicknames have been identified: affective function, relation function and positioning function. Finally, this study argues that there are two dimensions, public–private and exclusive–inclusive, that are useful in describing the use of nicknames. © Linnea Gustafsson 2016

    Powerful matriarchs, warrior women, and sexy slaves: views of women in Viking reenactment2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on a specific occurrence at a Viking reenactment market in Sweden in the summer of 2016. The incident in question involved a group which has decided to recreate Viking slave trade. They visit Viking markets where they will capture female visitors and ’sell’ them; in this case, this resulted in a police report for assault and kidnapping. What interests me is the reactions among other reenactors, and what those reactions indicate about ambivalent views of gender among Viking reenactors.

    Many Viking reenactors assert that Viking society was one of gender equality. They are often keen to pick up new research which seems to support this idea, such as the possibility of female warriors among Vikings. Thus, the Viking age is seen as closer to contemporary ideals about equality than, for example, the Middle Ages, and also as a time of strong independent women. Still, there is a certain amount of ambivalence about this equality: Viking society is also seen as heteronormative, and gender roles are often presented as complementary and interdependent rather than affording equal opportunities for both genders. In this paper, I will explore the recreation of Viking gender roles and how this draws on and legitimises heteronormativity and both equal and unequal contemporary gender roles.

    Sitting on the Sidelines: Disability in Malory2017In: Arthuriana: The Quarterly for the International Arthurian Society-North American Branch, ISSN 1078-6279, E-ISSN 1934-1539, Vol. 27, no 3, p. 66-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The presence of a small number of disabled characters in Malory’s text points to the normalization of ability: disability is outside the norm. This paper argues that disability is marginalized to the point of invisibility in the text because it is a site of anxiety for the intended audience.

    The Other Cornwall Girl2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the medieval texts, Morgawse is generally a less ambiguous character than Morgaine; although the mother of Mordred and a willing adulteress, she is unwaveringly loyal to Arthur. She has no great success with her sons, but is not portrayed as anything worse than possibly foolish. She even appears briefly as the love interest of Sir Lamorak, one of the great knights and lovers of Malory’s Tale of Sir Tristram.

    However, in modern texts, especially those rehabilitating Morgaine (or other female characters) Morgawse emerges as a much more problematic character. This begins in Stewart’s Merlin trilogy, where she is conflated with the woman who seduces and traps Merlin – while that character, still present in the text, is instead rehabilitated as a positive figure. It is also present in the texts by Bradley, Sampson, and Bradshaw, to mention a few.

    Depictions of Morgawse as (semi-)villain, despite their often overt feminist approach to the Arthurian stories, tend to include a strong contempt for female sexuality and for those embracing a traditionally feminine gender role. Morgawse is often presented as seductive, promiscuous, and inclined to work through and for her children, rather than to realise personal ambitions. In this paper, I discuss what happens to this female character when texts rehabilitate other female characters, and how the various portrayals of Morgawse exhibit a number of problematic ideas about women and sexuality.

    Strategies to strengthen outlook of life among young people: A case study in a Swedish municipality2016In: SWSD 2016: Joint World Conference on Social Work, Education and Social Development 2016, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a continuous increase in mental health problems, such as stress symptoms, among young people in the Nordic countries. One source of stress concerns young people’s outlook of life in general, and more specific the choice of education and future carrier. Previous studies show that high education has positive impact on a person’s health, but also on regional development. The research project is based on a case study in a Swedish municipality with low educational level. The aim of the study is to explore and understand the low education among the citizens. The study starts in young person’s perspective on their future. Further, how adults in home, school and the neighborhood, influence the young person’s educational and carrier choices. The analyses of the results are based on theories on gender and cultural/social capital. The empirical material consists of surveys and interview studies with young people, teachers and guidance counsellors. The results show that young people often feel unsure of their future chooses and often ask for more support from adults regarding their future education. Several students find it stressful to manage their career choices, particularly if their parents do not have sufficient knowledge to support them in such matters. Teachers and guidance counselors describe a lack of strategies to support and addressing issues of education and future work, but also how they should be passive in relation to influencing the students. In conclusion, the results show the importance, when it comes to social work and social development practices on preventing mental health problems among young people, to develop strategies for working with young person’s educational and carrier choices. In this project some strategies have been identified, on local political and school level, to strengthen outlook of life among young people.

    Norm Critical Design and Ethnography: Possibilities, Objectives and Stakeholders2017In: Sociological research online, ISSN 1360-7804, E-ISSN 1360-7804, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 232-252Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to describe the potential of combining norm critical design and ethnography in a collaborative project seeking to promote social change. In doing so the article will contribute with new perspectives on how design and ethnography can be practised in a joint effort between researchers and organisations. The article examines the following research questions: How can norm critical design and ethnography be used in a collaborative project seeking to promote change towards gender equality in an organisation? What distinguishes a norm critical design approach from other approaches using design and ethnography for intervention and social change? By taking their point of departure in a collaborative project with the Swedish fire and rescue service the authors demonstrate how a norm critical perspective on design in combination with ethnography provides a pedagogical tool for different stakeholders seeking to promote change in organisations. Even though a norm critical design approach like this shares the same interest in social change as more conventional ethnography and design projects do, there are some crucial and interesting differences when it comes to objectives and the collection of stakeholders that will be explored in this article. © The Author(s) 2017

    Namn på karaktärer i fantasylitteratur genom tiderna: En onomastisk jämförelse av namn i svensk och engelsk fantasylitteratur2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här undersökningen har jag haft som syfte att se om det finns ett förändrat namn­givningsmönster i fantasylitteratur som har skett över tid och om denna förändring sker samtidigt och på samma sätt i fantasy från Sverige och i fantasy från Storbritannien. Till denna undersökning valdes 14 engelska böcker och 14 svenska böcker. Det valdes två från varje årtionde, från 50-talet till 2010-talet. Dessa böcker excerperades och namnen analyserades. Det framkom att namntypernas användning i svensk och engelsk fantasy skiljer sig mycket från varandra. Det kan observeras att det varierar vilka namntyper som används under vissa perioder.

    Health education and citizenship - from democratic politics to individual responsibility?2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to previous research health is, in contemporary western societies, seen as an increasingly non-political issue. Rather than being at the centre of collective decision-making and democratic politics, health is more and more regarded as resting on individual responsibility. In our study we address the question of health education in schools as well as the question of citizenship. Our study consists of two parts. Firstly, we analyse whether health is portrayed as a political or non-political issue in teaching material, that is, whether health is regarded as a governmental or as an individual issue. Secondly, and informed by the results from our analyse, we dissect and problematize what kind of citizen (citizenship) that is constructed in teaching material. Our empirical data consists of Swedish textbooks for secondary and upper-secondary school in three school subjects’ biology, home economics and physical education and health. Our preliminary results are that the issue of health is quite strictly de-politicized and regarded as the responsibility of the individual, which not only corroborates previous research on health and citizenship. It also reinforces the currently predominant construction of the individual as detached from politics and democracy.

    Political Institutions and Regimes since 1600: A New Historical Data Set2017In: Journal of Interdisciplinary History, ISSN 0022-1953, E-ISSN 1530-9169, Vol. 47, no 4, p. 495-520Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new data set provides vital information about the world’s political institutions, from 1789 on a monthly and yearly basis and from 1600 on a yearly basis. The yearly data set from 1600 has more than 90,000 country–year observations, and the monthly data set from 1789 more than 600,000 observations—by far the most comprehensive to date, offering several advantages over other available ones. The data set aggregates specific attributes to create nominal and ordinal rankings of political regimes on a scale of 1 to 1,000. In addition to supporting a rigorous classification of democratic and nondemocratic regimes, it allows researchers to trace institutional variations and to explore alternative ways of aggregating political institutions. As a research instrument, the MaxRange data set permits historically minded scholars to address a number of issues related to the dynamics of political institutions in an unprecedented manner. © 2017 by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and The Journal of Interdisciplinary History, Inc.

    Abstract [sv]

    Demokratin som teknik för politiska avgöranden bygger på tanken att flera åsikter skall brytas i diskussion och debatt. Om demokrati ses som ett statsstyrt innehåll i politikutövning får vi vad en israelisk historieprofessor en gång kallade ”totalitär demokrati”, skriver statsvetaren Mikael Sandberg.
