Abstract [en]

Previous research reveals that the temporal ordering of childbearing and marriage can have an impact on the meaning of first-time marriage. This article aims to obtain a deeper understanding of meaning-making of first-time marriage in relation to childbearing. Narrative interviews with 16 brides and grooms in 8 couples in Sweden were conducted. The material was analyzed in relation to the temporal ordering of childbearing and marriage. The study reveals that the construction of meaning of marriage does not only relate to the temporal context. Social factors such as social class or family formation might also be relevant for how meaning is constructed. This article contributes to a deeper understanding of meaning-making as a relational process constructed within particular contexts.

Abstract [en]

Many parents exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV) encounter the childcare unit at Personal Social Services (PSS) in Sweden. This article explores how different ways of positioning in relation to the childcare unit, on one hand, and the other parent, on the other, may influence how parents exposed to IPV respond to interventions from the PSS organisation. The article draws on findings from qualitative interviews with 16 PSS clients who are or have been exposed to IPV and who have children with the abusive partner. Positioning Theory is used for the narrative analysis of the material. The narrative of one person is presented as an example of how narratives of IPV victims can be told. The study reveals that clients’ responses to different interventions might be the result of strategies for handling both the other parent and social services. Furthermore, over time, clients may change strategies in their contact with social services as a result of new ways of positioning in relation to social services and primary relations. An understanding of how primary relations, such as the relation to the other parent, may influence clients’ contacts with PSS and vice versa may improve the understanding of why clients act a certain way in relation to the organisation or why they suddenly seem to change their approach to interventions.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to investigate the construction of climate risks and to identify how it intersects with different forms of discursive categories in house owner narratives. Interviews with 44 house owners in four regions exposed to climate risks in Sweden were analyzed using the narrative method. I use intersectional risk theory, in which risk is constructed in relation to different forms of power structure, to interpret the narratives. The results indicate that narrators do risk in different ways in relation to the master narratives of the climate threat and individual environmental responsibility, which dominate the official rhetoric in Sweden. Three risk narratives are revealed in the interviews: (1) the master narrative of ‘the responsible house owner,’ (2) the alternative narrative of ‘the vulnerable house owner’, and (3) the counter-narrative of ‘the safe house owner.’ The climate risks talked about could relate to the narrator’s own house or to risks at a local or global level. The results indicate that different intersections of class, gender, age, and place shape different ways of positioning in relation to risk, by describing oneself as more or less aware of and exposed to climate risks. The analysis also reveals that different intersections of social structures lead to shifting prerequisites for house-owner preparedness towards preventing and managing climate risks. Such an understanding is important when trying to comprehend why some house owners adapt their homes to a changed climate while others do not. Aspects like these are necessary to consider while, e.g. deciding on policy and writing information and guidelines on adaptation to climate change.

Abstract [en]

In the 21st century, the Church of Sweden has lost its dominant position with regard to the ritualization of birth, marriage, and death. Above all, civil ceremonies have become more common. These are very free in form and content, but ritual actors often make them similar to church rituals. This article aims to investigate how practices used in ritualization in religious organizations are transferred to and given meaning in a civil context. In the study, 12 narrators talked about experiences of name-giving ceremonies, civil weddings, and civil funerals that they had designed and experienced. The results show that ritual actors’ social, religious, and cultural contexts have an impact on how ritual transfer is undertaken and given meaning. Civil ceremonies can connect to, as well as express resistance toward, religious organizations, religious traditions, and beliefs.

Abstract [en]

The objective of this article is to analyze how women who have been victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) position themselves in relation to the image of the “ideal victim” and how gender is constructed in that positioning. There is a need for a gender analysis framework to understand how various forms of femininity are constructed and how narratives linked to this can either maintain a woman in an abusive relationship or encourage her to leave. Christie’s theory of the “ideal victim” and Connell’s gender theory are applied in this study, in which the narratives of 14 female IPV victims in Sweden are analyzed using a narrative method. Three strings of narratives, representing different forms of femininity, are revealed in the material. The master narrative of the ideal victim reveals a form of femininity that describes women as inferior in relation to men. In the alternative narrative, the narrator positions herself as inferior in relation to the offender but discusses resistance. She describes herself as a caring mother who risks a great deal to protect her children. In the counter-narrative, the narrator positions herself as strong and independent in relation to the offender and as a strong and caring mother. The positioning of different narrators may shift depending on the duration of the relationship and the type of violence. The narrator may also take different positions during different phases of the story. However, the dominant narrative among the narrators is the story of the caring mother, which may have several functions and can partially be understood as a sign of the strong discourse of motherhood in society. The study contributes to a more profound understanding of the complexity related to women’s own positioning and reveals that awareness is required when attempting to understand the narratives and behavior of abused women.

Abstract [en]

This presentation focuses on volunteers and idea-based organizations’ involvement in refugee reception in rural areas. In our presentation, we will discuss how refugee reception is done in relation to gender, place and the dismantling of welfare. The study is based on interviews with seven BLOCK II g 100 volunteers and employees in two rural towns in northern Sweden. Our study shows that the social support to refugees in the studied towns seems to rest much on (older) women’s hospitality work and church organisations. In these small cities, a few organisations organize and engage in a broad spectrum of activities. The volunteers use their private networks as well as organized networks for organizing the activities. The women we interviewed seem to have a particular interest in engaging with female refugees in traditionally female practices such as baking and sewing invoking particular emotional motives and racialized scripts of refugee women in need of specific caring practices.
