Abstract [en]

This study examines discursive representations of Thai-Swedish couples in the Swedish daily press. The sample studied includes 17 articles. The study shows that the couples are constituted as inherently “different” through interweaving discourses such as a romantic love discourse, a sex tourism discourse, and a normalizing discourse, and through intersecting power relations such as those of gender, “race”/ethnicity, class, and sexuality. The normalized position representing “Swedishness” is not usually made explicit but is nevertheless constantly reproduced, and hierarchies are formed within as well as between the “normal” couple and “the Other”.

Abstract [en]

Intercultural families or couples are rapidly increasing in number in a globalised world. In the Northern periphery of Sweden, in the region of Jamtland, there are intercultural couples consisting of women from Thailand and man from Sweden/Jamtland. The aim of this PhD-project is to focus on how these couples are constructing and reconstructing gendered identities in gender regimes in their daily life, in this very specific context, and how gender thereby intersects with other socio-cultural dimensions such as ethnicity, sexuality, class and periphery. How are the conditions for these women and men, and as couples, formed and how do they create meaning in life due to the complex intersection of these power structures? And what becomes the effect of this in their daily life? The theoretical perspective � intersection/intersectionality, in the context described above, will be presented and discussed in this paper. And the ambition is to focus on the importance for understanding how much more complex gender constructions are than in a way gender studies have understood gender constructions. Until just recently Swedish studies, about women and men, have been looking at gender as a separate category. But during the last years the interrelatedness between several categories have become more casual. In social work though, the perspective is very new. And therefore, its important as well, to raise questions, in this matter, for the profession of social work.
