    Bortom den rätta frågan: Metodologiska innebörder av att forska tillsammans2008In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 2, p. 33-53Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the academy, a clearly defined question is the sine qua non of a good study. Theoretical, rather than practitioner knowledge, is valued. Theories considered to be neutral often have a male bias. Knowing all this, how does one link theoretical and conceptual categories with real change for women and men working with local development/forests and formulate a reasearch question useful not only to scientists but also to community members? I began my research wanting to analyze the dynamics of local forest management with special attention to how gender relations were negotiated in a sparsely populated village in northwestern Sweden. It was important that the research was relevant to the people that I worked with. This approach presented two challenges that I discuss in this article: to let the conceptual categories emerge from the research process rather than from prior theories and to bridge the gap between researcher and "research subjects". The methodology built upon designing a joint inquiry to which we brought our different interests and perspectives. As a researcher, the inquiry provided me with a means to go beyond looking at women’s customary absence from local organizations and how they may be able to get a foothold within them, to understanding how the women themselves framed their needs and issues. The women used the space of the inquiry to create a women’s forum, something that emerged in a process of dialogue with one another. They identified and unsettled practices that produced unequal relations in everyday life. While the process made obvious the differences in our positions as researcher and community members, for the duration of the research, it provided a space where academic research was open for scrutiny by those whom it sought to write about and where everyday questions became a part of social theorising.

    Show some emotion!2008In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 2, p. 7-31Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article "Show some emotion!" invites the reader to a dog-walk through the leaking and cracked up theoretical and emotional landscape of contemporary feminist academic writing. It also pays a short visit to the (in Sweden) ongoing debate on the consequences of adapting to a so called "excellence culture", especially for critical feminist research in the humanities and social sciences. What is the cost for "passing"? And, due to the less debated requirements of "writing in English" as equivalent for "internationalisation": what is possibly gained – and what is lost in translation, from the inside-perspective of a "small" language/mother-tongue such as Swedish? Along the way, the dog-walking and talking of the text finds its inspiration both in theoretical and in literary texts. It tries to make use of a hybrid, "leaking" and experimental stylistic attitude, which strives to be both polyglot and polyphonic; both democratic and emancipatory in its effects on the reader. Thus, the overall aim of the article is to explore and challenge the notion of academic writing and knowledge production as an rational, ungendered and unemotional activity. In addition to the so-called "surplus of knowing", that is said to be a gain for the individual researcher, the article argues that we also ought to pay attention to the unrecognized "emotional leakage" that occurs alongside in all intellectual work. In feminist and gender theory the emotional experiences of gendered power relations in academia have often been derived from personal and psychological factors – instead of a plausible result of an emancipatory and anti-hierarchical epistemological claim. The improductivity of the dichotomies between reason and emotions, as well as between academic and literary writing, is demonstrated, drawing on three "emotional leakage" - situations in the works of three pathbreaking feminist theorists: bell hooks, Sara Ahmed and Donna Haraway. hook’s "passionate feminist politics", Ahmed’s illuminating analysis of "the cultural politics of emotion" and Haraway’s daring challenge to use "dog writing" as a metonym for feminist writing, altogether highligths the importance of style as method and as a potentially emancipatory strategy.

    "Varför måste Butler vara så jävla akademisk?" En diskussion om feministisk kunskapsteori och akademiska undervisningsrum2007In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 4, p. 67-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses personal experiences gained by a teacher in gender studies and how she has addressed challenges such as the theoretical development and institutionalization of feminist theory on one hand, and the increasingly widened enrollment to higher education on the other. The argumentation is underpinned by concrete examples taken from a course where feminist poststructuralism is introduced. Special reference is made to Donna Haraway’s epistemological standpoint that all knowledge production is situated and that knowledge, in itself, always has social implications. If we transfer these insights to our classrooms, we need to consider how we, as teachers, articulate, motivate and establish our own culture of academic knowledge production. The power, in this situation, concerns how we relate to clashes of interests and the diversity of the range of possibilities, both in the interaction between teacher and student and between the students themselves. How we relate to these issues will result in different opportunities for different students to conquer the conceptual tools the course is aimed to give them. The author is therefore both giving arguments and, with practical examples, showing how an approach based on ‘walking your own talks’ can facilitate more equal power relations in our increasingly diverse classrooms.

    Abstract [sv]

    Kvinnorörelsen i Sverige har krävt en kriminalisering av mäns våld mot kvinnor i nära relationer och att staten tar ansvar för att skydda kvinnor från våld även i hemmet. Sedan 1970-talet har mäns våld mot kvinnor också alltmer kommit att omtalas som något som berör många och något som ”samhället” har ett ansvar för. Men vad betyder egentligen statens ansvarstagande?

    Abstract [sv]

    Genom Europa löper en islamofobisk politisk vind med negativa inställningar till invandring, underblåst av extremhögern. Liz Feketes fokus är hur dessa strömningar i och med kriget mot terrorismen har blivit mainstreampolitik i många europeiska länder. Detta politiska skifte, för ett assimilationsinriktat och monokulturellt samhälle behöver och får dock sina feministiska cheerleaders.

    Handling som kunskapande: en kunskapskritisk reflexion över konstnären och designern som forskare2007In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 1-2, p. 33-55Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article consists in a discussion of the epistemological implications of the knowledge claims in practice-based research. Rather than arguing a special case for knowledge in art and design, it tries to problematize what is often taken for granted in the distinction between theory and practice, as well as between formal scientific method and creative action. Thus the question is posed: how come knowledge in praxis, creation and action seems problematic in relation to conventional scientific epistemology? Point of departure is the problems and failures of the design theory movement, as well as different attempts to reconcile and negotiate what is often described as a ”structural anxiety” in the relation between practice based and conventional research. This is analyzed in relation to the complex and intricate picture of how research actually is done, as well as to the critique of conventional scientific epistemology and scientific self-image, offered by the last decades science- and technology studies, most notably from a feminist perspective. With subsequent attempts to envisage a different, more responsible, kind of research: in the concepts of situated knowledges, strong objectivity and in the relentless insisting on the active and necessary it is not only possible, but also more interesting and fruitful, to couple the question of practice-based research. What was seen as problematic in relation to conventional scientific epistemology, the situatedness and embodiedness, the difficulties in making generalizations, the role of artefacts, is here seen as a strength. It does not, however, say that anything goes: it rather sets up a different set of standards for good knowledge construction which can be summarized as a critical including of our positions and aims (relevance), a radical curiosity and humbleness in the meeting with that, or those, we regard as our objects of knowledge, and a recognition of the controversies, value conflicts and insecurities that lies at the heart of the political projects we inevitably are involved in. And that practice-based research thus, especially coupled with the critical and constructive perspective of feminist epistemology, can offer new paths and models also for more conventional areas of knowledge production.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den komplicerade relationen mellan maskulinitet och andlighet har osynliggjorts i forskningen om det moderna västerländska samhället, menar historikern Tommy Gustafsson. Sekulariseringen till trots präglades mellankrigstiden fortfarande av religiösa världsbilder. Med utgångspunkt i amerikansk och svensk spelfilm producerad under 1920-talet diskuteras denna ambivalenta maskulinitet.

    Abstract [sv]

    Klassanalysen är tillbaka – samtidigt som världen är förändrad. Om kvinnor i västerlandet tidigare klassificerades utifrån makens yrke och klasstillhörighet så är tillvaron idag betydligt mer komplex. Kvinnor arbetar i hög utsträckning. Ändå är det svårt att bestämma klass i en och samma familj. Detta beror bland annat på att kvinnors och mäns arbetsvillkor och positioner kan vara helt olika. Likaså kan deras klassmässiga bakgrunder se helt olika ut.

    Abstract [sv]

    Postmodernismen har pekats ut som den farliga ”andra” från höger och vänster, av feminister liksom anti-feminister. Därför är det provocerande att i feministiskt syfte applicera postmodernistiska grepp och insikter på modern klassteori. Genom att resonera med Marx och Weber, samt äldre och nutida feministiska klasskritiker söker Ulrika Holgersson försoningen mellan feminism och klass bortom den moderna berättelsen.

    Abstract [en]

    Violence in same-sex relationships – what is it and which kind of support is needed? In the following study we show some of the similarities as well as differences between same-sex partner abuse and different-sex partner abuse. We point at the responsibility that authorities and voluntary organizations has for not treating lesbians, homosexual men, bisexual women and men and transsexual women and men (lhbt) in a homophobic way. The lhbt-organizations in turn are not homophobic, but are not well informed about questions that concern partner violence. The respondents in the study also point to the fact that the lhbt-circle is rather small in Sweden. Therefore they fear they have to give up their anonymity to get help and support if they contact an lhbt-organization. This underlines that authorities and heterosexual organizations in general must see to that they get the proper lhbt-competence to meet the needs of victims of same-sex partner abuse.

    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the way different groups of Swedish men experience and relate to issues concerning fatherhood, paternity leave and gender equality – how they together construct fatherhood in the field of tension between normative societal visions and their own lived reality. The study included four groups of men: men working in a centre for men in crisis, men involved in a network organization for masculinity issues, men in an association promoting security and social justice in a multiethnic suburb (a majority of the men had immigrant background) and men involved in a Christian church. Conceptions of fatherhood and gender equality were explored through focus group interviews. As starting point for the interviews the groups were confronted with materials from the last 30 years of state initiated paternity leave campaigns. The result confirms conclusions made in previous research, namely that Swedish men in general have a positive attitude to active parenthood. With few exceptions the groups expressed a child orientation and a positive approach to gender equality and shared parental responsibilities. Despite common ground on the importance of fathers taking active part in child care, the four groups displayed differences in the way they conceptualized the question. They related to different experiences and often used different ways of expressing thought, emotions and observations. The result points toward the influence of factors such as age, social and professional position, ethnic background and religion. The group of men working at the crisis centre primarily used individual rather than societal perspectives. Their main concern was the impact of the campaigns on men’s psychological well-being. The group of men from the Christian church placed the question of fatherhood in the context of preserving and promoting the family. In the group dominated by men with immigrant background, the fatherhood question was mainly framed through references to the economic hard-ship and social exclusion distinguishing many multi-ethnical Swedish suburbs.

    Abstract [en]

    The dream of the good pornography today, draws its argument from a feminist anti-porn analysis that concludes that pornography is an expression of the patriarchal society where women are being obejctified and degraded. However, in the 1960s, there was another dream of the good pornography, one which claimed that the existing pornography was bad from an aesthetic point of view. It had to do with the fact that pornography was forbidden in Sweden until 1971, and one argument for legalization was that porn would then become much better. The article examines the dream of the good pornography, the relationship between art (cinema) and porn (film), and what happens to the issue of gender when the dividing line between the two categories is questioned. Historically, the relationship between art cinema and the pornographic film is complex and the two categories that at a first glance are so easy to distinguish, have lived in a mutual dependency of each other. Art films with sexually explicit material pushed the limits for censorship during the 1960s, but at the same time, the success of art films with sexually explicit material often relied on a censorship that allowed sex in art but not for pornographic purposes. The undefined border between art and pornography also bring to the fore a discussion of the gender ascribed to each category. Art, belonging to the realm of modernism and high culture, has, by some theorists, been regarded as masculine, whereas porn, belonging to what has sometimes been regarded as the feminine mass culture, is often discussed and analyzed as a male genre. At the same time, one point of departure for the dream of the good pornography in the 1960s as well as in the late 1990s and early 2000s, is woman, her sexuality and her consumption of pornography.

    Abstract [en]

    This article is an experimental and critical text with the aim of addressing methodological issues of forms for academic writing in Swedish gender research. In the focus of interest lays a methodological paradox: at the same time as gender research sets out to analyse complex issues of power relations and normativity, dominance and homogeneity, mainstream theory has continued to dominate through traditional forms of academic writing. The thinkingwriting subject can be understood as a strategy for academic writing across genre, stile, time and space, and a commitment to critical reflexive research practice. The article applies a personal narrative approach and argues for a post/academic writing strategy, which make use of a style and tone to present authoring as active and powerful, and as a process between and beyond personal, essayist and discursive. The interweaving of textuality, visuality, spatiality and voice characterises the process of writing, and doubts are represented as an important impetus in relation to time and change. The question of what is an author is elaborated through the text, for example by seeking dialogue with other researchers through memory and letter writing. The reader is invited to reconsider moments where the methodological postulate is challenged. The article concludes by providing the reader extra material about the article and the author.

    Familjens kris. Fem decennier av svensk familjepolitik2008In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 1, p. 79-93Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the history of the Swedish welfare state, with a special emphasis on the development of Swedish family policy between 1930 and 1975. It is argued that a coalition between state officials and state-appointed experts was active in the shaping and legitimising of the concept of family as well of family politics. The underlying assumption of the paper is that the concepts of the family and of family relations are constructed through the intertwining relationship between the state (exemplified through social and family politics) and social science academics, employed as experts in governmental commissions. Thus, the main object is to explore the arguments behind family policy recommendations that were put forward in governmental commission reports between the 1930’s and the mid 1970’s. This period is marked by several policy ruptures. In its early period, the main goals was to simultaneously strengthen the functionality of the nuclear family and creating equality between men and women. It was followed by a period marked by ambivalence, where the dual roles of women were highlighted at the same time as the nuclear family was made the cornerstone of family policy. In the 1960’s, elements of a gender neutral family policy emanated.

    Abstract [en]

    This article is an attempt to apply Luce Irigaray’s notions of difference and the other as the methodological attitude in reading narrative or autobiographical interview data. According to Irigaray, to communicate with the other as truly different requires that we keep wondering about the other and that we speak in a language which does not presume a shared world or a common linguistic code. Instead, the way – or method – of love speaks a poetic language of rhythm and melody of the one who is speaking to the other. From the encounter between two persons, both turn back to themselves, and their identities are in the continuous state of becoming when they move between themselves and the time-space where they meet. In this article, the researcher meets with a physician she has interviewed for the purposes of her study on general practitioners’ identity. She starts her analysis with her own feeling of wonder, and she speaks to the physician while moving back to her own self and asking what she could become thanks to the narrative words given to her by the interviewee. She then asks what the motives are for scientific writing in the language of love and, further, what can be said about the cultural origins of personal narrative and professional identity if their analysis is based on the not-shared, the mysterious, the negativity of not knowing.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den högskolepolitiska satsningen med breddad rekrytering saknar en politiskt kritisk ambition som verkligen skulle kunna motverka de skillnader som ligger till grund för social snedrekrytering, menar Lena Martinsson. Talet om tillväxt och anställningsbarhet i en global ekonomi är ett mantra som upprepas i de högskolepolitiska dokument som hon analyserar. De konserverar skillnad genom begreppet social mångfald. Istället för den liberala mångfaldsdiskursen som präglar dokumenten vill hon se universiteten som en plats för kritiskt tänkande där klass återtar platsen som analytiskt redskap.

    Chandra Talpade Mohanty, en av världens ledande feminister inom det postkoloniala fältet, reflekterar över möjligheter till ett emancipatoriskt handlande och för en solidaritet över nationsgränserna. Genom att använda begreppet "kvinnoarbetare" menar hon att klasskonflikternas specifika könsdimension framträder och tillåter analyser av rasifierad dominans.

    Abstract [en]

    There is an increased interest for spatial aspects in social sciences in general today. But the interest also raises questions of how space is conceptualised; whether power relations are included, or if space is understood as neutral and as a container. Historically, geography’s disciplinary base is colonial and patriarchial. Additionally, in Sweden economic geography’s specific interest in the 'homo economicus' has dominated. In contemporary critical spatial theory, space is understood as constructed, produced, fluid and relational. Space is constructed through, and by, different power relations. In this article the concept of intersectionality is used to see how race, gender and class coincide with time and space. Through these different perspectives issues of exclusion and discrimination are revealed. The focus is on the home, homelessness, the nation and the under-privileged suburbs in relation to how space and place are racialised, sexualised and classified. Firstly, it is illustrated how the home is sexualised, but also racialised, through the strong identification with having a place to belong to. This repetitive consolidation with a place also reflects the nationalisation of home, and the similar exclusion from home; the home is private and strangers should be kept out. The racialised female body is intrinsically problematic as she has a stronger connection to the private, at the same time as she is a stranger. In the growing segregation in the metropolitan suburbs these intersections of class, gender, race, time and space is at its most visible, and a revisited colonial approach to these areas can be seen today. The author calls for an increased awareness of the intersectional aspects of space in gender theory formation today since space is a fundamental category in relation to gender, class and race.

    Abstract [en]

    Fashion is a topic that deserves to be taken seriously, and our contribution sets out to explore the vitalizing possibilities of combining critical men's studies/gender studies and queer with new impulses in fashion, consumer and visual studies, not only in terms of theory, but also in terms of grounding this work empirically in new ethnography. Through ethnographical observation we have followed masculinity being groomed and performed through different aesthetical practices, in particular we have focused on the pleasure culture of the hair studio and the business suit in the context of annual meetings. Our approach seeks to span the large scale movements of the fashion system and local practices. We discuss the problematic relationship between feminism and fashion studies and argue that RWConnell's hugely successful conceptualisation of hegemonic masculinity prevents a more dynamic and differentiated understanding of competing masculinities, performed through varying, although largely unacknowledged aesthetic practices – a neglected field of study we think is highly promising. On the other hand, we also suggest that fashion studies today suffers from limitations that could be overcome by taking seriously the challenge of the new conceptualisations of gender and sexuality, not as given macro systems or discourses, but in butlerian terms as ongoing embodied iterations. It is a curious paradox that fashion studies often seems marginalise itself, making clothes and hair simply mirror other cultural and social entities, not as important discursive forces in themselves. We call for more traffic between gender - and fashion studies, in terms of theory, but without neglecting the necessity to ground with careful ethnographic work in "writing bodies in movement".

    Zarah Leander: den queera divan2007In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 1-2, p. 67-90Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish actress and singer Zarah Leander (1907–1981) was one of the most celebrated female stars in German Nazi Cinema 1936–43. She played a crucial role in Joseph Goebbels entertainment industry, and the profit the Nazi regime made on her and other female moviestars were immediately allocated to the German war industry. Leander never offered any excuses or explanations with regard to her productive years in Nazi Germany. She called herself "a political idiot" who just wanted to work and make money, no matter where and under what circumstances. Leander, the ex-Nazi star, never stepped out of that shame. The argument, "only entertainment", was not sufficient to explain all the years in the Nazi entertainment industry. But Leander must in many ways be seen as the antithesis of the prototypical Nazi female and Leander appears as one of Nazi cinema's most contradictory figures. Her star persona has always been a negotiation of antagonistic formulations, thus pointing to modes of audience identification and spectatorship issues, most strikingly articulated through her immense popularity in the post-war gay community. This essay discusses Leander as a queer diva in the way the "phenomenon Leander" emerged in the 1950s and 1960s in Sweden, Germany and internationally. Leander's dark voice, travestie-like persona and her schlager repertoire made her a major gay icon in the 1950s. The queer quality of Leander is to be found in her transgressive erotic representation of her vocal gender ambiguity, transformed in the gay male diva worship into counterpolitical resistance to "normality". This essay deals merely with gay male Leander worship, but Leander also had her lesbian following.

    Var tog politiken vägen? Om regionalpolitik, jämställdhet och statens förändrade former2008In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 1, p. 31-52Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the relationship between how politics is organised and the potential for politicising gender, and discusses how feminist theory of the state could be used in order to understand this relationship. Regional policy, and especially regional partnerships as an established way of doing politics at the regional level, is used as an example of new forms of organising politics. Constructions of gender equality in regional policy is scrutinised as a way of analysing how gender is (or is not) politicised in this policy field. As a theoretical backdrop the definition of politics is elaborated as an ongoing process where the dimension of conflict is necessary and where place is seen as constituted through power. The author argues that new, seemingly inclusive, ways of organising politics also could work in an excluding manner. Further the author shows how demands for including gender equality doesn’t go further than the ambition of ”balancing in” women. Thus gender is not made into a political dimension. These processes are framed within a theoretical understanding of changes in politics from “government” to “governance” in a neo-liberal political culture, and analysed with post-structural feminist theorising of the state emphasising the need of seeing the state as complex, while still having privileges as a political actor.

    Abstract [en]

    A comparative discourse analysis based on Coetzee's novel Disgrace and an authentic case of sexual harassment in a Swedish university, involving a professor and his student, shows that an emotive discourse with religious and legal confessional traits is absolutely necessary for the accused to embrace, if he desires to protect his rationally constructed professionalism. Coetzee's hero refuses to confess and is consequently disgracefully dismissed from his position as professor, whereas the professor in the authentic case protects his position by confessing his guilt. Ethical dilemmas arise concerning the status of truth and the confessional, and power- and genderrelations are also effected. The public and private, teh emotive and rational, is intertwined in a complicated relaitonal process, where professional and gender hierarchies shift. This leads to the conclusion that the professional academic subject is exposed to a discursively regulated disciplining process in which the supposed repression of emotion is essential, and therefore one of this subject's most constitutive traits.

    Varannan damernas väg till riksdagen - En romantisk historia2007In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 4, p. 25-46Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the impact of a romantic discourse in Swedish gender politics and more so; a heteroromantic discourse on closeness and passion between men and women. This is done through a close reading of the Swedish debate on “varannan damernas”, a quota measure to increase the number of women in parliament. The article argues that part of what turned this into a gender political success-story is the heteroromantic framing together with an adoption of ideals of cooperation inside the existing parties. The change in status is marked by a shift in terminology from ‘quotas’ to ‘varannan damernas’ (‘every other women’). In its earlier usage the expression refers to a phrase from the dance halls in which women were allowed to ask men up for every other dance. The metaphor thereby brings the question of women’s political presence into the intimate sphere and turns the previously conflictual framing of enforced legislated gender quota into a dance that symbolically guarantees both parts free will. The discursive embedding of visions and strategies is decisive in order to make gender equality an intelligible target for political action and change. With the counter-case of a women’s party, the article claims that the acceptance of certain gender equality solutions is not only due to a strong women’s movement or a general public interest in gender related matters. It is foremost a question of how claims and strategies are made intelligible and how they are incorporated into normative ideals of Swedish politics (mutual agreements and block-politics) and gender equality (cooperation between men and women). Thereby the case demonstrates that visions of emancipation are structured within relations of power. Gender politics can be described as a striving for gender equality, but is also a struggle over the classifications and legitimacy of certain world views as well as over material resources.

    Förortsfeminismens villkor – transversell politik2007In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 3, p. 57-80Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Juan Velásquez is recognizing the difficulties that frame the fight against discrimination, segregation and racism in Sweden. Gender mainstreaming and anti-discrimination work usually go for disparate roads, in spite that growing racism, homophobia and antifeminism require bigger unification between civil society, administrators and the scientific community. To articulate these actors Velásquez proposes transversal politics. He has studied this type of transversal work within the frame of a research project conducted in the multicultural community of Fittja, Botkyrka municipality in the metropolitan region of Stockholm. To advance this work he has developed a perspective based on participatory research that has turned into a transversal research. From the interaction among municipal officials, women’s networks and researcher, Velásquez seeks to make two fundamental contributions to the discussion on transversal politics. The first one is to engage in the local community. Transversal politics has been lifted 80 Tidskrift för genusvetenskap nr 3 2007 t e m a as a perspective to build feminist alliances to overcome global patriarchal structures, and case studies on micropolitics related to that discourse are still few. Both the way in which women performed diversity as well as the search for commonality among them is subject to a series of conditions that frame what Velásquez in the context of a multicultural suburb in the Swedish welfare state calls a suburban feminism. The second contribution is based on a study how women in a place like Fittja overcome the conditions that frame their political underrepresentation. Velásquez shows how women practice what feminist scholars named ”rooting” to analyse their subordinate condition, advancing dialogues where the use of affections and feelings are fundamental. These affections have been important to make ”shifting”, to go from the understanding of subordination to the construction of a local alliance to face the patriarchal outline that concern them. The understanding of the conditions that frame the construction of local feminist alliances is also analyzed in relation to the problems that urban governance can generate, when a transversal frame between women networks, the public administration and researcher is established in order to empower underrepresented groups among women.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to show how a key observation, made in an advanced institute for training actors, is effected by gender discourses. These discourses interact with a master-apprentice tradition developed as a central part of the institute's artistic-pedagogical training program. Another tradition was also at play as an important pedagogical inspiration and discursive formation: a matrilinear trainingprogram related to the voice and the body. This hierarchical master-apprentice-tradition was not only an accepted condition, but also a power-contra-power relation in the Foucauldian sense. In this powerplay of submission and resistance specific metaphors and symbols related to the body was crucial. These bodyrelated metaphors and symbols are shown to act subconsciously as part of a system of so called "rootmetaphors". By bringing together an analytic approach informed by Foucault's view on power, as well as one informed by psychoanalysis, this gendered "rootsystem" emerged. A key symbol is the metaphor of metaphors in psychoanalysis: the phallus. The complex role of the phallus was made clear when observing a physical exercise whose aim was to activate and raise the students consciouness of the voice's soundingboard. Allusions to classical theatrical ideals, the dubious status of male students in acting in the cultural hegemony in society at large, as well as the confusion and bodily sensations this exercise caused, activated the meaning of the phallus and in extension the penis. One, in our culture natural symbol or rootmetaphor, the phallus, came more or less unconsciously to the rescue of these men. Ironically, the need of male dominance was reinforced in an environment which not only is endowed with a hierarchical male tradition, but also with values and connotations related to the feminine: the artistic and personal, intuition and the desire to perform and act. The phallus as the metaphor of metaphors seemed to work selffulfillingly, interacting with internalized discourses on gender.

    Klassresan är enligt Ulla-Britt Wennerström en emotionell identitetsprocess. Känslor är klassresans centrala drivkraft och möjliggör självkännedom av egna förmågor, önskningar och förväntningar i livet. För kvinnor handlar det inte bara om att överskrida strukturella hinder som rör klass, utan även kön. I fjorton livshistorieintervjuer med kvinnor födda i arbetarklass finner Wennerström att det i ett livsperspektiv är möjligt att nå en emotionell acceptans av sina erfarenheter som klassresenär.

    Abstract [en]

    The article is a feminist postcolonial reading of the early phase of Swedish post-war development assistance. Departing from the fact that Swedish export interests was a major reason when initialising Swedish development aid in the 1950s, I analyse the rhetoric used in pictures and in text documents. Analysing mainly the two national fund raising campaigns of 1955 and 1961, both named “Sweden helps”, I argue that the arguments forwarded were taken from a colonial discourse library, using its imaginary dichotomies, with the purpose to win a public opinion in favour of development assistance. The idea promoted was that of a Swedish technological and scientific supremacy as compared to the ”underdeveloped” countries. The aim to support the export of Swedish technology was coupled with the promotion of a dichotomic worldview in which poor peoples should be helped to better lives through the introduction of the Swedish technological know-how. Within this altruist rhetoric the “underdeveloped” peoples and countries were depicted in terms of poverty, misery and malnutrition, despair and as being “primitive” – as opposed to the rich, modern and developed Swedes. While promoting this rhetoric, other discourses and interpretations of the “underdeveloped” countries and regions were overshadowed. The two national fund raising campaigns were used as instruments to raise the awareness of the Swedes, as well as to promote the support of a specific type of development assistance based on the altruist rhetoric. Many of the ideas and arguments that once were the base for colonial expansion of the European colonial powers were now applied to motivate a Swedish expansion on the international arena in times of decolonisation.
