    Om tränares talhandlingar och idrottares integritet: några etiska reflektioner2022Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I tidigare studier har jag diskuterat frågan om relationen mellan tränare och idrottare ur skilda perspektiv (Jönsson 2017; Jönsson 2020). Den här presentationen kan därför sägas bygga vidare på dem. 

    Om jag i de tidigare studierna främst ägnat mig åt att undersöka den betydelse som tränare har för att skapa idrottssubjekt genom språket de använder, så kommer jag här mer att rikta strålkastarljuset mot de psykologiska och etiska konsekvenserna som följer på tränares talhandlingar, och hur dessa talhandlingar internaliseras av idrottare och därmed kan utgöra ett hot mot idrottares integritet. 

    Det empiriska underlaget för de etiska slutsatserna utgörs av exempel hämtade från ett antal självbiografier författade av idrottare.

    Paralympics and the Fabrication of 'Freak Shows': On Aesthetics and Abjection in Sport2017In: Sport, Ethics and Philosophy, ISSN 1751-1321, E-ISSN 1751-133X, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 224-237Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two years before the opening of the Paralympic Games in London in 2012, the British TV network Channel 4 launched a campaign called Freaks of Nature. As part of the campaign they produced the short film Meet the Superhumans by director Tom Tagholm. The film became an immediate success, but was also criticised for portraying the Paralympians as ‘freaks’ and for reducing the Paralympics to a ‘freak show’. But was it wrong to describe the Paralympics as a ‘freak show’? Is there even a point of using the term ‘freak show’ in relation to sports? There might be, and that is what I am discussing in this paper. To be more specific, I am proposing that the term ‘freak show’ can challenge and destabilise common aesthetic views in sport, simply by the adding of abject dimensions to the athletic performances. From this one can claim that the Paralympics reconnects to the freak show-tradition of the past. And that, in itself, can have a moral and political impact.

    Paralympics and the Reproduction of Tragedy: On Abjection, Aesthetics, and Attitudes2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Paralympics 2012 in London has been vividly described as a complete success. The media coverage was intense before and during the Games, many of the competitions were in front of a full house crowd, and some of the athletes even became celebrities. To this the British TV channel Channel 4 produced an artistically suggestive short film, entitled “Meet the Superhumans”, in order to advertise the Games. Afterwards, the legacy of the Paralympics was generally described as a real breakthrough not only for the Paralympics but also for disability sport in general. This was before the “backlash”. One year after the Games in London, the British charity organization Scope published a report in which it was claimed that the attitudes towards disabled people had not improved as a result of the attention from the Paralympics. Quite the contrary, many in the disability community said that the situation in fact had worsened due to the attention from the Paralympics. The previous well-established triumph had turned into a failure. How can one philosophically understand this? By analyzing how the Paralympic Games 2012, and the Paralympians, were portrayed in the media as well as in the film “Meet the Superhumans”, we may find some of the reasons why Paralympics turned into somewhat of a failure. Generally speaking, the pattern from how the Paralympians were publicly described, as well as how the Games were advertised, demonstrates a rather dubious attitude towards disability sport. In my presentation I will argue (1) that the general focus on disability as an inherent (and unwanted) tragedy, may contribute to patronizing attitudes towards disabled athletes; (2) In defining disability as an inherent tragedy, the Paralympians are being victimized before the public eye, which in turn means that disabled athletes can never be seen as athletes equal to abled-bodied athletes; (3) The patronizing and victimizing attitudes towards disabled athletes are fuelled by how Paralympics, and disability sport in general, are being aesthetically presented.

    Scouting och maskulinitet: normkritiska reflektioner2011In: Out and About - Perspectives on outdoor training - Parallel sessions, Malmö högskola, Lärande och Samhälle , 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Alltsedan bildandet och framväxten av scoutrörelsen i början av 1900-talet har synen på rörelsen genomgått en radikal omvandling: från att ha betraktats som en halvmilitär rörelse och representant för etablissemanget, och därmed som ett hot mot politiskt radikala krafter, till att betraktas som politiskt harmlös. I min presentation kommer jag dock avvisa föreställningen om scouting som politiskt okontroversiell. Jag kommer att argumentera för att scoutrörelsen alltjämt representerar ideal, normer och värden som vilar på traditionell maskulinitet – inte minst i förhållande till naturen.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I will elaborate on the feminist scholar Donna Haraway’s understanding of the concept of situated knowledges. I believe it is a concept that can be usefully applied to sports and sport science, in that it may create stories about the intertwined relationship between sport science and the narratives of sport science – stories we can believe in.

    Sport and politics. An ethical approach.2012In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, E-ISSN 2001-7308, Vol. 2012-05-31Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The 2012 European football Championships in Ukraine and Poland is only just another example of the connection between sport and politics. A positive effect of placing the Championships in Ukraine is that a more intense debate on the democratic deficit in Ukraine has emerged. That we should welcome. On the other hand, this can also lead to a situation where the regime in Ukraine benefit from the Championships, not least after the Championships have started and the general public becomes more interested in the games than in the political situation. Without doubt, sport can be used not only as means for political awareness but also as means for redirecting the severe political circumstances from the political scene to the football pitch, where the political objections are turned into athletic prowess among the football teams. Of course, it does not mean that the political problems have disappeared. They are still right in front of us, even when we are watching the games. And, as always when we are watching sport, we are also watching politics.

    Sport beyond gender and the emergence of cyborg athletes2010In: Sport in Society: Cultures, Media, Politics, Commerce, ISSN 1743-0437, E-ISSN 1743-0445, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 249-259Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The essay is based on two premises: (1) sports culture (as we know it) is based upon rather specific (masculine) gender structures; (2) technological innovations play a significant role in modern sport. I combine these two premises and discuss whether technologies can be used as tools in order to make sport gender neutral and therefore more genuine or authentic. I argue that we have good reasons to make such a claim, based on the fast development of sport technology as a whole. But this claim is not unproblematic. In fact, the main problem may not be the advantages that come with the technologies, but that we tend to hold on to conservative ideas regarding gender. Nonetheless, perhaps the development of sport technologies may undermine the foundation of gender, which may in turn lead to the birth of a new kind of athlete: (non-gendered) cyborg athletes.

    Sports and Bullshi t: Philosophical and Ethical Aspects of Athletic Entertainment2018In: Book of Abstracts - EASM 2018, 2018, p. 257-258Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: After decades in the backyard of the sports world, professional wrestling (henceforth, pro wrestling) has grown to be an integral part of the sports entertainment industry. Through many films and TV series, this spectacular hybrid of athletics and theatrical performance, has become a common cultural reference. But not only that. Since the election of Donald Trump as the US president in 2016, pro wrestling also has received political attention in that Trump has used his former involvement in pro wrestling as a means for attacking what he calls “fake media”. The question is, though, what we should make of this. What does it say about our time, and the relations between sports, entertainment, politics and the sports market in terms of ethics? Obviously, pro wrestling can be controversial, not least when read in political terms. This is not new. Already in the 1930s, some raised questions in that regard, for example the American writer Christopher Isherwood (2012). After watching an obviously staged fight in the streets of Berlin in the early 30s, he draws the conclusion that the spectators did not seem to show any interest whatsoever for what is true or fake. And he understood politically. What he really saw, embedded in the reactions of the spectators, was nothing less than a political moral that foreboded the Nazi tyranny. This, of course, is only one way of understanding the phenomenon of pro wrestling. Nonetheless, the example raises the question of what is true and false in sports, and what is merely bullshit. With that said, I will here discuss the following questions: What are the ethical implications in regards to what is fake and true, and is it morally worse to believe in “fake” sports than in “true” ones? I will suggest that the phenomenon of pro wrestling does not only say something about our time, but also that pro wrestling (whether we consider it to be bullshit or not), may be more “true” than “real” sports. Theoretical background: In his 2005 modern classic On Bullshit, the American philosopher Harry Frankfurt draws attention to the distinctions between truth, falsehood and bullshit. In his theory of bullshit, Frankfurt suggests that we should differentiate between liars and bullshitters. A liar, Frankfurt claims, do in fact care about the truth – but tries to hide it. A bullshitter, on the other hand, is indifferent when it comes to truth and falsehood. Based on this, one might even say that it may be morally worse to be a bullshitter than a liar. Following these distinctions but applied to the issue of pro wrestling versus “true” sports, one might say that pro wrestling rests upon bullshit, whereas “true” sports does not. However, are we certain that such preconceptions are fully consistent? Perhaps it is the other way around, even. In a famous essay, the French philosopher Roland Barthes (1991) argues that “true” (that is, traditionally competitive) sports, sometimes accommodate hidden symbolic aspects that are not supposed to be openly presented before the spectators. Rather, in such cases “true” sports tries to hide the truth of the sport in question. This is not the case when it comes to pro wrestling. On the contrary, pro wrestling offers the opposite of that. What this argument suggests, is that pro wrestling in some respect is truer than “true” sports. But again, what should we ethically make of this philosophical reading of this argument? Are, in fact, “true” sports about falsity and simply a way of “bullshitting” the consumers, whereas pro wrestling is not? Methodology: With the cultural phenomenon of pro wrestling as the centre of attention, I will present philosophical arguments for and against the idea of pro wrestling as merely fake when it comes to a sports context. From such an analysis I believe it would be possible to draw some essential conclusions in regards to ethical concerns when it comes to this issue. Discussion: What this investigation may lead to, is somewhat a new (or, renewed) understanding of the ethical implications when it comes to a “fake” versus “true” sports. Not only because such a discussion may shed some light on common preconceptions in regards to sports in general but also because it may say something important about how we (as consumers of sports events and alike) relate to the concepts of truth, falsehood and bullshit.

    Tränarna och omsorgsetiken: Några kritiska argument2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Introduktion: Till tränaretikens mest grundläggande frågor hör den om hur en god tränare bör vara. Men vilka etiska principer bör vara de vägledande? Somliga, som den norske idrottsfilosofen Sigmund Loland, har argumenterat för att en god tränare bör sträva efter det som Aristoteles en gång benämnde som fronesis, det vill säga ”praktisk visdom”, där tränarnas tekniska och praktiska kunnande smält samman med en känslighet för idrottarnas inre värld och sociokulturella villkor. Om vi accepterar fronesis som ett filosofiskt förankrat ideal, så är det ett ideal som möts av en betydligt mer komplicerad verklighet. I den här presentationen kommer jag, genom ett eller flera konkreta exempel, lägga ett omsorgsetiskt raster över den inledande frågan som en del av en pågående undersökning kring den mer omfattande frågan om idrottstränares moraliska gränser gentemot idrottare. Syfte och teoretisk ram: Med utgångspunkt från främst Emma Igelströms uppmärksammade självbiografi ”Simmar-Emma: Min kamp mot bulimin” från 2006, kommer jag att belysa och argumentera kring olika aspekter för relationen mellan tränare och idrottare, och med det pröva styrkan i den moralfilosofiska inriktning som brukar gå under namnet omsorgsetik. Metod: Metodologiskt kommer det att vara fråga om en prövande och spekulativ argumentation. Med andra ord kommer jag att använda mig av sedvanlig filosofisk metodologi, där argument och aspekter ställs mot varandra och som därmed kan bidra till en genomlysning av några av tränaretikens inneboende dilemman. Resultat: Utifrån konkreta exempel kommer jag att visa hur i synnerhet genus, ålder och makt samverkar intimt med en elitidrottsvärld där tränares omsorg om idrottarna kan ta sig olika uttryck och förstås på olika sätt. Vad undersökningen visar är att det inte finns någon entydigt sätt att förstå begreppet omsorg på, utan står i ett beroendeförhållande till hur exempelvis maskulinitet kommit att skapas inom elitidrottsvärlden. Diskussion och slutsatser: När kan man säga att en tränare visar omsorg om idrottare de tränar, vägleder och instruerar? Frågan är långt ifrån enkel, men tål att undersökas och hållas levande. Inte minst i ljuset av tränarskapets rottrådar till patriarkala idrottskulturer och prestationsideal.

    Who's afraid of Stella Walsh? On gender, "gene cheaters", and the promises of cyborg athletes2012In: The Ethics of Sports Medicine / [ed] Claudio Marcello Tamburrini, Torbjörn Tännsjö, Routledge, 2012, p. 121-144Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I argue that there are moral reasons to embrace the construction of self-designing and sex/gender-neutral cyborg athletes. In fact, with the prospect of advanced genetic and cyborg technology, we may face a future where sport (as we know it) occurs in its purest form; that is, where athletes get evaluated by athletic performance only and not by their gender, and where it becomes impossible to discriminate athletes based on their body constitution and gender identity. The gender constructions within sports and sports culture are solid, however. Here, I argue that the rough distinctions we use to define people in terms of sex/gender tend to create and recreate old-fashioned and discriminatory sex/gender-boundaries. A morally reasonable way of meeting this issue, is to say that the problem is not the individuals who (for one reason or another) transcend certain gender categories, but the categories in themselves.
