    Hysteri eller härlig stämning: En komparativ studie ur ett genusperspektiv2014Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi har gjort en kvalitativ studie där vi jämför hur manliga och kvinnliga supportrar framställs i media, i text men också i bild. Studiens syfte har varit att undersöka hur mycket genus spelar in i hur människor, och grupperna de tillhör, beskrivs i tidningar. Vi har undersökt webbartiklar från kvällstidningarna Expressen och Aftonbladet där det finns beskrivningar av sportsupportrar på lagsportsmatcher och beskrivningar av fangirls på konserter. Totalt omfattar studien 19 analyserade artiklar med tillhörande 36 bilder. Materialet har analyserats med hjälp av ett analysschema, som vi sammanställde för att se mönster och genomgående teman och därigenom också svar på våra frågeställningar.

     

    Studiens resultat stödjer tidigare forskning, som pekat på att ”image”, så som utseende, kön och ålder, är det som beskrivs allra mest för den kvinnliga supportergruppen, medan det för den manliga supportergruppen snarare är deras handlingar som beskrivs. Det stämmer också överens med tidigare genusforskning som säger att kvinnor framställs som känslosam medan mannen framställs som stark och handlingskraftig. De kvinnliga supportrarna beskrivs som hysteriska, emotionella individer, medan de manliga är en hejande massa som skapar en härlig stämning.

    Exploring the Gendering of Space by Using Memory Work as a Reflexive Research Methodology2007In: International Journal of Qualitative Methods, ISSN 1609-4069, E-ISSN 1609-4069, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 29-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How can memory work be used as a pathway to reflect on the situatedness of the researcher and field of inquiry? The key aim of this article is to contribute to knowledge about the gendering of space developed by feminist geographers by using memory work as a reflexive research method. The authors present a brief review of feminist literature that covers the local, and global, symbolic meanings of spaces and the power relations within which space is experienced. From the literature they interpret themes of the interconnections between space, place, and time; sexualization of public space; and the bodily praxis of using space. Our memories of gendered bodies and landscapes, movement and restricted space, and the disrupting of space allow us to explore conceptualizations within the literature as active, situated, fragmented, and contextualized.

    Frivillighet, skyldighet eller frivillig skyldighet?: Om genus och handlingsutrymme i civilsamhället.2008In: Arbete, hälsa och kön, Sundsvall: Mittuniversitetet , 2008, no 2, p. 25-36Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Liksom i det avlönade arbetslivet följer det frivilliga, ideella och obetalda arbetet ett könsmönster. I den här artikeln problematiseras detta faktum och sätts i relation till diskussionen om var gränsen bör gå mellan statens ansvar och uppgifter som bör skötas av aktörer inom det civila samhället. I diskussionen om en pågående förskjutning av alltfler uppgifter från det offentliga till frivilliga och ideella aktörer studerar författarna genusaspekter av frivilligarbetet i tid och rum. Hur tar kvinnor respektive män plats i det civila samhället, vilken plats är det och var leder den?

    Språk och kön2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi översköljs dagligen av föreställningar om hur män och kvinnor "är". Vi möter en mängd schablonbilder i massmedia och populärkultur. Dessa konstruerade föreställningar om skillnader mellan könen gäller också vårt språkbruk.

    Författarna diskuterar och problematiserar våra kulturella föreställningar om språkskillnader mellan könen med utgångspunkt i den massmediala verkligheten och våra vardagliga erfarenheter. De visar att många av förställningarna om språkskillnader mellan könen är konstruerade och saknar grund. I stället tydliggörs de många - och svårfångade - sambanden mellan språk och kön.

    Språk och kön är landets första vetenskapligt uppbyggda lärobok i ämnet. Den vänder sig både till studenter och till yrkesverksamma. Boken kan användas på utbildningar i bland annat språkvetenskap, nordiska språk, genusvetenskap och lärarutbildningar.

    I skuggan av välfärdsstaten2008In: Jämställdhetens pris, Umeå: Boréa , 2008, p. 278-Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Välfärdsstatens framväxt och kvinnors förvärvsarbete har medfört att många uttrycker oro för vad som händer med de mellanmänskliga relationerna. Vissa menar att vi i dagens samhälle varken kan, vill eller behöver ta hand om varandra. Vår forskning visar tvärtom att det sker omfattande utbyten av ekonomiskt, praktiskt och känslomässigt stöd mellan föräldrar och vuxna barn, mellan grannar,arbetskamrater och vänner. Men att be om hjälp är inte helt okomplicerat. För att undvika obekväma beroendeförhållanden vill många reglera sina utbyten i tydliga överenskommelser.

    About getting a daily life going: Social work, time and normalization2011In: NORMALIZATION AND “OUTSIDERHOOD”: Feminist Readings Of A Neoliberal Welfare State / [ed] Siv Fahlgren, Anders Johansson, Diana Mulinari, Bentham eBooks, 2011, p. 28-38Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: This chapter analyzes the normalization processes taking place in a Swedish social welfare institution for children/families as processes in which social life is regulated by sociotemporal patterns. Agendas for change in social work institutions are often tied to linear clock time and are continuously repeated in institutional practice. The empirical material consists of ten narrative interviews conducted with the personnel and is here analyzed in relation to the meaning of time in the narratives. The aim is to show how certain concepts of time become normalized as the supposedly neutral foundation for social life, and how the values and power relations inherent in them in terms of gender, race/ethnicity and class become invisible. This normalization makes time into part of institutional disciplining, thus legitimizing certain social practices while others are discredited. The very construction of normalcy itself seems to depend on a linear time structure (the right time, on time etc.). Ironically, these normalization processes may reproduce the very power orders that create social marginalization, stigmatization and social problems that social work have to challenge, and may discredit social practices related to process times that might challenge such power orders. By understanding and conceptualizing the complexity and variety of time that interpenetrate within and permeate our daily lives we may be able to discuss and challenge these normalization processes.

    Abstract [en]

    Through a study of the narratives and practices in a gender-balanced social worksite, this article identifies institutionalized gender normalization processes. In the tales, the social workers told of their work, they reiterated the value of a gender-balanced workforce, together with the ideal of a gender-neutral profession. This view made it hard for the workers to see the ways in which the gender order they were involved in reproduces a gendered hierarchy in which male social workers are accorded greater value and an increased space of action, while female social workers and femininity are characterized by shortcomings when compared to men. © 2013 SAGE Publications.

    A room of our own:  A collective biography of an exercise in interdisciplinary feminism.2011In: Normalization and “outsiderhood”: Feminist Readings of a Neoliberal Welfare State. / [ed] Siv Fahlgren, Anders Johansson & Diana Mulinari, UAE: Bentham eBooks, 2011, p. 106-116Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: The interdisciplinary research project “Challenging gender” was a joint effort by members of two Swedish universities. Researchers were grouped by five different themes, while together they became “the Arena”. The present authors’ theme focused on normalization processes, and included gender researchers from literary studies, sociology, social work, and public health studies. The purpose of this chapter is to explore what it is to challenge normalization processes as researchers; the context is interdisciplinary gender research under a neo-liberal regime. To deepen their understanding of what the process has occasioned, the researchers used “collective biography”, a memory-work method developed by Bronwyn Davies, who led the researchers’ work of writing down their memories prompted by experience of striations and of lines of flight. In this chapter the memories so produced are discussed in the light of Virginia Woolf’s A room of one’s own.  Thanks to the financial resources the project was able to muster, we were able to create the kind of collective “room” where we could take the opportunity to be creative and challenge structural patterns – but equally where we could give vent to our frustration at these same patterns. Our memories seemed to waver between fragile but uplifting flashes of optimism and a feeling that nothing would work, and not only just the one or the other – always somewhere in between. Our theoretical understanding of normality grew out of that most dangerous of ideas: that we should open our minds to the unpredictable, the non-normalizing, to whatever could be different

    Utmaningar: feminismens (o)möjlighet under nyliberalismen2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    När individen på en marknad blivit den alltigenom dominerande modellen för att organisera samhällen och organisationer har det också påverkat hur en ser på betydelsen av kön. Den här boken utforskar hur normalisering går till under nyliberalism, hur det görs på sätt som både utmanar feministiska perspektiv och kan utmanas av feministiska läsningar. Om vi alla i nyliberal anda sägs göra fria, individualistiska val kring alla frågor i våra liv, val som var och en av oss själva samtidigt står ansvariga för, blir en feministisk kritisk position svår att se. Måste vi då kunna tänka i sociala kollektiv för att komma förbi föreställningar om och erfarenheter av ett privatiserat och personligt förtryck, förenklingar och individuell moralism? Så ställer boken frågor om feminismens (o)möjlighet under nyliberalism. Boken avslutas med att skissa möjliga feministiska positioner och strategier för förändring, för att slutligen visionärt diskutera vad ett feministiskt samhälle skulle kunna vara.

    Reading normalised knowledge production from a feminist perspective - a case study2010In: IARTEM e-journal, ISSN 1837-2104, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 18-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a feminist reading of the introductory part of a Swedish university textbook from the field of social work. We show how a textbook like this,whose aim is to represent the “normal” state of a discipline, is conditioned by discursive circumstances beyond the control of individual authors, such as the normalisation of what is seen as central and what is seen as less important within the discipline, and how these circumstances reproduce patterns that still challenge feminist standpoints. Although pluralism and tolerance are the explicit aims of the editors, a seemingly neutral narrator voice, and the consequent way of presenting different research methods and theories as perspectives open for choice, come to hide existing hierarchies of power within the discipline. Pluralism and discrimination can thus actually coexist.

    INTRODUCTION: CHALLENGING NORMALIZATION PROCESSES IN A NEOLIBERAL WELFARE STATE2011In: NORMALIZATION AND "OUTSIDERHOOD": Feminist readings of a neoliberal welfare state / [ed] Siv Fahlgren, Anders Johansson, Diana Mulinari, UAE: Bentham eBooks, 2011, p. 1-1Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: This introductory chapter provides the conceptual framework for the book, focusing in particular on normalization processes within the contemporary neoliberal welfare state. In the first part we give the historical background to the ways in which “the normal” has functioned within the discursive field of the modern welfare state. The normal was double-sidedness: it was integral to the ideological formations of race biology and other disciplining and discriminating practices within what was later to be called social work, and it was also that which made possible the formulation of political demands for many underprivileged groups of people. This inclusive aspect of modern welfare policy has been toned down in the current individualized and market-oriented neoliberal welfare state. We argue in the second part of the chapter that the modern emphasis on inclusion as a citizen’s right has been replaced by a focus on the problem of those who are excluded, those outside, as individuals with difficulties in belonging. As we show, this shift leaves its imprint on many social and political areas, not least the ones concerned with gender equality and immigrant policy. After the historical overview, we briefly present some theoretical standpoints for the project, positioning ourselves in relation to our dependence above all on Foucault, Butler and Hacking. The chapter ends in a description of how our research relates to previous research within the areas of postcolonial theory, social policy theory, national identities and political oppositional activism.

    Normalization and outsiderhood: Feminist Readings of a Neoliberal Welfare State2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume presents an illuminating analysis of the ways in which normalization processes and practices operate in a welfare state in an age of neoliberalism. This informative book problematize the meaning of the phrase ‘normalization processes and practices’, that for an Anglophone audience may smacks of functionalism. The historical context of the adoption of normalization processes and practices in Sweden in the post-World War II era was, in the first instance, an expression of the inclusivity designed to decrease inequalities and to achieve social justice. However all the contributors to this volume, show very clearly how notions of normalcy, of normalization, in a neoliberal time operate not only to create an integrating and equalizing context but also, and much more critically, how these processes and practices serve to exclude certain groups of people, and produce a structural inequality that in recent years has been discussed under the term of ‘utanförskap’ or outsiderhood. Critiquing these interventions, the contributors to this volume show how diverse groups of people - immigrants, families considered ‘at risk’ by social services, pregnant women, young girls – are variously the objects of context-specific normalization processes and practices that make any resistance to such interventions difficult, if not impossible. What people ‘normally do’, cloaks that ‘normal doing’ into a fog of invisibilization that suffocates any form of protest. Normalization thus takes on specific forms of repression in particular circumstances, for instance through the ethnocentric imposition of norms of behaviour on migrants where that ethnocentricity is neither made evident nor acknowledged. This system of normalization also operates in schools, resulting in the reproduction of inequalities and discrimination from an early age. In such normalization processes ‘the normal’ or ‘the usual’ becomes a means for re-interpreting structural inequalities in terms of individual choice, and for displacing the responsibilities for change onto those positioned as outsiders. Worryingly, the individual chapters highlight how the operations of normalizing processes work to obscure their functioning, thus making any critique of both the underlying assumptions and their operationalization almost impossible.

    Millennium: Åtta genusvetenskapliga läsningar av den svenska välfärdsstaten genom Stieg Larssons Millennium-trilogi2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Stieg Larssons Millennium-trilogi (2005-2007) har blivit en enorm försäljningssuccé världen över. I dess spår har ett allt större intresse för Sverige som land och som välfärdsnation väckts. Frågor har rests om vad författarens beskrivning av det mycket aggressiva våldet betyder och vad det har med Sverige som land och som välfärdsnation att göra? Hur rimmar böckernas berättelser med föreställningarna om Sverige som ett av världens mest jämställda länder?  Kan böckerna läsas som pro-feministiska? Hur relaterar romanfigurerna till svenska barnböcker av Astrid Lindgren? Och hur kommer det sig att romanfigurerna hela tiden dricker kaffe? Tanken att låta det svenska samhället belysas och diskuteras genom Millennium-serien föddes i början av 2010 vid Forum för Genusvetenskap vid Mittuniversitetet, en mångvetenskaplig plattform för forskare med genusperspektiv i sin forskning. Den för många av oss provokativa frågan som restes var: Vilken fråga är Lisbeth Salander ett svar på i dagens Sverige? Syftet med antologin är flerfaldigt och kan sammanfattas på följande sätt:

    Att utifrån en svensk kontext belysa och diskutera det svenska samhället genom Millennium-serien.Att i populärvetenskapliga artiklar vidga rymden kring den skönlitterära texten genom att diskutera den ur många olika perspektiv och utifrån fler ämnesdiscipliner än litteraturvetenskap – som genusvetenskap, etnologi, folkhälsovetenskap och juridik.Att låta genusperspektivet, i mer eller mindre genomförd form, vara en gemensam nämnare för texterna.

    Genom att presentera några svenska (och en finsk) genusforskares läsning och problematisering av hur Sverige av idag kan förstås genom Millennium-trilogin, vill vi ge en kontextuell bakgrund till romanernas bild av vad som pågår i Sverige. Den första delen behandlar frågor om hat, våld och brott i en svensk nutida välfärdskontext. Här diskuteras romanernas porträttering av centrala aspekter av ett samhälle, som brott och lagar, men också rädslor, tillit och andra emotionella narrativ, i relation till forskning om det nutida svenska samhället. Johanna Niemi gör i kapitel 1: "All the Adults in the Noisy Village: Constructions of Post-Modern Identity in the Welfare State in the Millennium Trilogy", en spännande läsning av Sverige med ett perspektiv lite från sidan, det vill säga från grannlandet Finland. I kapitel 2 "Våld, jämställdhet och Millennium- serien" behandlas en fråga som på ett ganska givet sätt reses av Millennium-böckerna: våldet mot kvinnor i en svensk kontext av Katja Gillander Gådin. I kapitel 3 "Rädda sig från intet" diskuterar Håkan Berglund-Lake händelser som gör att platser där människor känner sig hemma och trygga plötsligt förändras av våld, våldtäkt, inbrott, brand, eller andra destruktiva yttre krafter.

    I del två av denna skrift diskuteras bilden av Lisbeth Salander utifrån olika perspektiv. I kapitel 4, "Lilla syster ser dig! Pippi Långstrump, Lisbeth Salander och andra Pippi-karaktärer", analyserar Eva Söderberg hur Larsson har skapat Lisbeth Salander i relation till Lindgrens barnbokshjältinna Pippi Långstrump. Som en stark och mystisk litterär figur har Lisbeth Salander provocerat till en mängd mer eller mindre fantasifulla tolkningar. I kapitel 5, "Salanders teorem. Lisbeth Salander som Millennium-trilogins gåta", av Annelie Bränström Öhman, diskuteras ett annat möjligt svar på vilken fråga Lisbeth Salander är ett svar på. I kapitel 6, "Lisbeth Salander: feministiskt svar eller provokativ fråga?", ställer Siv Fahlgren frågan: kan vi läsa karaktären Lisbeth Salander som svaret på ett samhälle där män hatar kvinnor? Och i så fall – är det då ett feministiskt svar?

    Den tredje och sista delen presenterar bilder av svenskhet. I kapitel 7, "Kaffe, klass och kön – jämlikhetens dryck i Millennium-trilogin", beskriver Åsa Ljungström hur berättelsen om fikat och kaffedrickandet, i relation till berättelserna om jämlikhet och jämställdhet, fungerar i Millennium-trilogin. I det åttonde och sista kapitlet "De goda männen och de starka kvinnorna. Om gemenskaper utifrån Millennium-sviten" skriver Anders Johansson om de goda männens funktion i böckerna i relation till de starka kvinnorna.

    The power of positioning: On the normalisation of gender, race/ethnicity, nation and class positions in a Swedish social work textbook2011In: Gender and Education, ISSN 0954-0253, E-ISSN 1360-0516, Vol. 23, no 5, p. 535-548Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a feminist reading of a Swedish social work academic textbook as a case study. We use a discourse analytic approach and positioning theory, focusing on author positions through different story lines. The aim is to make visible how differences are created and positions of the author/reader normalised in terms of gender, race/ethnicity and class. The analysis illustrates how the organisation of the book privileges a particular story line by presenting gender research in a special section of the book and as a perspective. A neutral, unmarked author position is assumed, presented as a common 'we' by identifying 'women researchers' and 'feminist' points of departure as different. If the unmarked author/reader 'we' position appears desirable and morally superior, the clients' gender, ethnicity and class are often openly discussed in relation to social problems, positioning them as 'the other'. Finally there is also a story line of more critical and ambivalent knowledge positions.

    Genusmaraton 2007: Mittsveriges genusforskare på frammarsch2007Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Genusmaraton är den första skriften i serien Genusstudier vid Mittuniversitetet. Skriften utgör en sammanställning av flertalet av de förläsningar som hölls vid FGV:s populärvetenskapliga forskardag, Genusmaraton, i Härnösand den 22 februari 2007. Syftet var att genom korta smakprov berätta om den tvärvetenskapliga bredd, djup och den omfattning genusforskningen har vid Mittuniversitetet, och hur spännande den kan vara. Detta avspeglas förhoppningsvis i rapporten, där texterna spänner över ett brett tvärvetenskapligt fält, från Astrids imaginära möte vid genuspassagen i en litteraturvetenskaplig essä, via feministiska reflexioner kring hur maskulinitet och normalitet konstitueras i massmediala berättelser om våldtäkt, till arkeologiska studier av kritpiporna vid en bustuga i Svartviksbodarna i Södra Dalarna.

    En kartläggning av självhjälpsgrupper för personer med smärta: Presented at Past, Present, Future conference 2007-05-14--16, Umeå2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I artikeln redovisas en genomförd kartläggning av självhjälpsgrupper i Sverige för personer med smärta. Kartläggningen visar att självhjälpsgrupper finns inom ett brett spektrum av huvudmän, samt att om verksamheten sker inom det offentliga sammanhanget har den en högre grad av professionellt ledarskap, fler könsblandade grupper samt att ordet smärta mer sällan uttalas i gruppernas namn, vilket vi menar kan ses som en icke-legitimering av smärta som sjukdomsorsak. Sker verksamheten inom frivilliga organisationer och/eller studieförbund finns en högre andel självstyrda grupper och grupper med cirkelledare, grupperna uppges oftare bestå av enbart kvinnor samt att gruppernas namn anger mer tydligt att de inriktar sig på smärta. Slående är den överrepresentation av kvinnor som finns inom självhjälpsgrupper för personer med smärta, oavsett huvudman.

    Self-help groups for women with pain: A research review with a gender perspective2005In: International Journal of Self Help & Self Care, ISSN 1091-2851, Vol. 3, no 1/2, p. 133-148Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is the aim of this review to provide a survey of research on Self-Help Groups (SHGs) in health care with a special focus on SHGs for women with chronic muscular pain. The aim is not only to describe this field of research, but also to consider how this research relates to gender research as such. A variety of themes are examined: history, external factors that influence SHGs, internal aspects of SHGs, and gender research on SHGs. It was found that the gender perspective was relatively neglected. Our suggestion for further research notes that group members can produce new ways to manage their lives with the help of the interaction/exchange in the SHGs, regarding gender construction, knowledge, legitimacy and adaptation or transformation, and the position of activities in SHGs among societal norms and attitudes.

    Peer sexual harassment in schools  - normalisation of gender practices in a neoliberal time2011In: Normalization and the production of "outsiderhood". Feminist readings of a neoliberal welfare state / [ed] Fahlgren, S., Johansson, A., Mulinari, D., Bentham eBooks, 2011, p. 58-67Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses on the way in which organizations and legislation, despite their explicit intentions, nevertheless promote normative inequality, maintaining sexual harassment as an apparently inevitable part of schooling. Peer sexual harassment is found to be both frequent and pervasive in Swedish schools and is more or less expected as an everyday hassle that students have to handle. This chapter highlights the social and discursive pre-conditions that, despite laws and policies, let behaviours related to sexual harassment continue to take place at a high frequency. These behaviours function as an obstacle for change toward a safe school environment, which is free from discriminating behaviours. Drawing on previous research, this chapter shows the gap between manifest legislation and common practices at school. The method is interpretive and critical, in the sense that it is a sustained discussion of questions being raised by earlier studies. The following six aspects of the discursive normalization processes that collaborate to make sexual harassment a common and concealed phenomenon in Swedish schools are: 1) Not including genderbased violence as a specific domain in the national public health policy; 2) Sexual harassment being invisible in school surveys; 3) Sexual harassment being invisible in anti-bullying programmes; 4) Ignorance of power and gender perspectives in schools; 5) The normalization of asymmetric power relations as a hindrance to victims speaking up and taking action; and 6) Lack of a common understanding and definition of sexual harassment.

    Studying the intersections of rurality, gender and violence against girls and young women:: An urgent matter in both the Global North and the Global South2015In: Being young in a neoliberal time: Transnational perspectives on challenges and possibilities for resistance and social change / [ed] Katja Gillander Gådin and Claudia Mitchell, Sundsvall: Mid Sweden University , 2015, p. 109-120Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION

    Violence against girls and women is a global problem, not only for the victim herself, but also for society in general (Garcia-Moreno, 2002). In the case of women with children, violence is also a problem for these children. A multi-country study on violence against women in 15 sites and 10 different countries, mainly low-income, shows that there are wide variations in prevalence between and among settings (World Health Organization, 2005). The differences were not only between countries but also between rural and urban areas within a country, with overall levels of violence against women consistently higher in rural than in urban settings. This means that we need to take space and place into account in studies of violence against girls and women. To date, the links between place and sexual violence against girls and women is an understudied area. Indeed, as Sandberg (2013) notes, the study of intimate partner violence and other forms of sexual violence in rural settings, in particular, may in fact be a blind spot in intersectional research.She calls fora consideration of how place may intersect with such constructs as class, ethnicity, race, gender, and sexuality. To this list we would add age, with the idea that addressing violence against girls and young women is a particularly critical concern in relation to ensuring safety and security for a new generation. The urban condition and life in the city as studied in relation to migration, housing, social supports, and violence itself (including sexual violence) is typically taken up in research that ranges from a focus on townships and informal settlements in the Global South through to thestudy of urban sites in the Global North. However, while the trend for people to live in urban spaces is increasing, this does not mean that there are no social issues that need to be addressed in rural settings; in the context of declining resources and state provisioning, rural life presents its own challenges. There is also a discursive construction of the rural areas that is characterized by higher rates of sick leave, higher unemployment, and the migration of young people away from the area. Added to this is the perception that rurality does not contribute to the economic development of the country (Nyhlén, 2013, Eriksson, 2008). This way of describing the rural can be regarded as an act of othering in that it positions rurality as the other in relation to the urban/center. In this way center and periphery are somehow interdependently constructed. Urbanization itself is built on the premise that resources are taken from the periphery and used in the center (Andersson, Ek & Molina 2008).We stress the importance of asking questions about what it means to study rurality and about how we can create research that goes beyond images of a declining rurality, not forgetting in this process, to ask questions about how rurality is gendered. The purpose, then, of this chapter is to address the necessity of understanding violence against young girls and women by theorizing the relationships between and among place, gender, and violence, particularly in relation to rurality. We do this by first contextualizing our arguments, focusing on three country contexts—Canada, South Africa, and Sweden. We then address three particularly important areas: (1) place-based gender and ethnic regimes, (2) rural vulnerabilities, and (3) local policy enactment.

    Do schools normalise sexual harassment? An analysis of a legal case regarding sexual harassment in a Swedish high school2017In: Gender and Education, ISSN 0954-0253, E-ISSN 1360-0516Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sexual harassment has become so frequent and ubiquitous in schools that these behaviours have become normalised and expected. In order to prevent the re-enactment and perpetuation of this problem, it is important to explore processes that contribute to its existence. A high school sexual harassment lawsuit in Sweden is used as a case study to illustrate ways that might explain how sexual harassment is normalised at the organisational level. A thematic analysis has been used to identify themes and subthemes. The results show a multi-layered web of factors and practices related to sexual harassment at the organisational level in the school. In order to change a school’s culture from one where sexual harassment is normalised, multiple needs must be addressed: organisational weaknesses must be strengthened; adults enact their responsibility to change the situation; and awareness of the relationship between sexual harassment, gender, and power needs to be increased.
