    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.

    Location and Unlocation: Examining Gender and Telephony through AutoEthnographic Textual and Visual Methods2013In: International Journal of Qualitative Methods, ISSN 1609-4069, Vol. 12, p. 403-419Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies on gender and telephony tend to be quantitative and depict the purposes for which women and men use mobile telephones and landlines. Qualitative studies on the topic predominantly rely on face-to-face interviews to examine how telephone use genders space. We suggest these traditional methods of data collection leave unexamined the emotional and social relationships that emerge and are enabled by telephone use which at times reconfigure and gender social spaces. In this article we present a collaborative autoethnographic inquiry based on our own telephone lives. We introduce a reflexive visual and textual methodological design, specifically diary notes, memory work, and photography, developed from our lives as researcher and researched. We examine an important theme in our findings, the physical placement of the telephone and the phone holder’s awareness of the physicality of the telephone, which illustrates the importance of our methodological choices. We show how the placement of the phone by the users both genders space and creates emotional spaces.

    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 set out to analyse complex issues of power relations and normativity, dominance and homogeneity, mainstream theory has continued to dominate gender research 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 acative 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 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 and by suggesting that construction of absent authorship is counterproductive in critical studies. 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.

    Emergent Writing Methodologies in Feminist Studies2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary challenges for seeking new knowledge in feminist studies are intimately intertwined with methodological renewal that promotes justice and equality in changing global contexts. Written by some of the leading scholars in their fields, this edited collection focuses on the emergence of writing methodologies in feminist studies and their implications for the study of power and change.

    The book explores some of the central politics, ideas, and dimensions of power that shape and condition knowledge, at the same time as it elaborates critical, embodied, reflective and situated writing practices. By bringing together a variety of multi/transdisciplinary contributions in a single collection, the anthology offers a timely and intellectually stimulating contribution that deals with how new forms of writing research can contribute to promote fruitful analysis of inequality and power relations related to gender, racialisation, ethnicity, class and heteronormativity and their intersections. It also includes the complex relationship between author, text and audiences.

    The intended audience is postgraduates, researchers and academics within feminist and intersectionality studies across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The book is excellent as literature in feminist studies courses and helpful guidance for teaching writing sessions and workshops.

    The loathsome, the rough type and the monster: the violence and wounding of media texts on rape2008In: Sex, Violence and the Body. The Erotics of Wounding., New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2008, p. 194-211Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter engages with a significant contemporary dimension of the subject of rape: that is, the violence and wounding of textual representations produced in media. It aims to explore a case of serial rape in the Swedish press and develop a reflexive meta narrative based on memory work and auto/biography. The chapter focuses on the function of authors and authoritarian voices and analyses the consequences of wounding that the act of sexualised and embodied speech actually does. Textual and visual symbolic representations of “the loathsome”, “the rough type” and “the monster” constitute the focus for critical exploration. Interpretations of “the loathsome” show how powerful speech develops around the act of naming and how journalist authoring constitutes a site to express anger and domination. By adapting a scrutinizing observing gaze, media portray “the rough type” as equal to a criminal (mind) and body. Finally, dichotomisation of good fathering and ruthless serial rapist constitute a base for the image of evil/“the monster”. One of the problems with media coverage in the case studied is that it creates representation of stereotype men/women, rapists/murderers and draws attention away from institutional relations of violence between men and women. Autobiography and memory work are used as reflective methodologies which allow the researcher to locate herself within the text, and in relation to what goes on outside the text. Autobiography, as a form of life writing, allows the contextualisation of how different and changeable conditions in the life of the researcher impact on, and are affected by, the study. As a result, the reader may engage with how the researcher struggles to resist the violent categorisation of the passive victim, which the text imposes on women. Indeed, this chapter wishes to invite its readers to think about some of the often neglected dimensions of emotions tied to fear, guilt and constant doubts of the academic author, when texts studied are already inhabited by dominant authors with the potential to exercise violence.

    The Professor's Chair: An Untimely Academic Novella2010In: Life Writing, ISSN 1448-4528, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 155-172Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This reflexive article aims to construct academic textuality beyond the author – to elaborate possible forms of the symbolic, visual and sensory, in research. The story is set in a university, the writing happens both in the process of writing by the author, and for the main character, in the novella in other places. It can be described as critical reflexive strategy inspired by poststructuralist feminist theory and literary fiction, and additionally by methodological approaches in the humanities and social sciences, such as theorising letters (Jolly & Stanley 2005), memory work (Haug et. al 1987) and theoretical autobiography (Overall 1998). In particular, it draws on work by the theorist, critic and writer of fiction, Hélène Cixous, and the feminist author and theorist Charlotte Perkins Gilman, drawing on interpretation of Cixous´ essay Enter the Theatre and Gilman´s story The Yellow Wallpaper. . The Professor’s Chair has been published in Swedish in the book Genus och det akademiska skrivandets former (Gender and forms of academic writing) (Eds Bränström Öhman & Livholts, 2007). This reflexive article consists of a selection of translated sections, some newly written text and a photograph to help strengthen the visual and symbolic dimensions.

    The Snow Angel and Other Imprints: An Untimely Academic Novella2010In: International Review of Qualitative Research, ISSN 1940-8447, Vol. Volume 3, no Number 1, p. 103-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article, written in the form of an untimely academic novella is a text, which explores academic authoring as thinking and writing practice in a place called Sweden. The aim is on inquiries of geographical space, place and academia and the interrelation between the social and symbolic formation of class, gender and whiteness. The novella uses different writing strategies and visual representations such as documentary writing and photographing from the research process, letters to a friend, and memories from childhood based on three generations of women’s lives. The methodology can be described as a critical reflexive writing strategy inspired by poststructuralist and postcolonial feminist theory and literary fiction, and additionally by methodological approaches in the humanities and social sciences, such as theorising of letters, memory work and narrative and autobiographical approaches. In particular, it draws on work by the theorist critic and writer of fiction, Hélène Cixous, and the feminist author and theorist Charlotte Perkins Gilman, drawing on interpretation of Cixous´ essay Enter the Theatre and Gilman´s story The Yellow Wallpaper. Characteristics of the untimely academic novella elaborate with possible forms of the symbolic, visual and performative photographic and sensory in writing research; furthermore time, social change and unfinal endings play a pervasive role. It may be read as a story that situates and theorises embodiement, landscape and power through the interweaving of forest rural farming spaces and academic office spaces by tracing autobiographical imprints of an untimely feminist author. “The Snow Angel and Other Imprints” is the second article in a trilogy of untimely academic novellas. The first, with the title “The Professor’s Chair”, was published in Swedish in 2007 (in the anthology Genus och det akademiska skrivandets former (Eds.) Bränström Öhman & Livholts) and forthcoming in English in the journal Life Writing 2009/2010.

    To fill academic work with political passion: Nina Lykke's Cosmodolphins and contemporary post/academic writing strategies2012In: Feminist review (Print), ISSN 0141-7789, E-ISSN 1466-4380, no 102, p. 135-142Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is part of a project, which builds on interviews with feminist scholars about the complex activity of writing research. The focus is on exploring processes of writing and genre in the context of a feminist academic author’s career and to reflect on these in relation to a context of contemporary post/academic writing strategies. The article builds on a publicly staged dialogue with Nina Lykke, Professor of Gender Studies with special reference to Gender and Culture at Linköping University, Sweden, focusing on themes such as academic authoring, ‘wild others’ and unexpected encounters. In particular the writing of Lykke’s book Cosmodolphins. Feminist Cultural Studies of Technology, Animals and the Sacred (with Mette Bryld, 2000) is acknowledged. Political passion and queerness pave way for analysing the emergence of a genre-blending creative writing methodology. The article argues that contemporary multiple and shifting interdisciplinary forms of writing methodologies are the product of complex conditions related to terrains of academic life, social relations of power, and for feminist scholars - a passion for change.

    To theorise in a more passionate way. Carol Lee Bacchi's Diary of Mothering and Contemporary Post/Academic Writing Strategies2009In: Feminist Theory, ISSN 1464-7001, E-ISSN 1741-2773, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 121-131Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article seeks to explore feminist theorising on mothering by discussing the complexity related to movement between different forms of textual representations/’genre’; that is, what is often referred to as academic and not academic writing. In the article, Carol Lee Bacchi, previously Professor of Politics at the University of Adelaide, is invited to reflect upon the process of writing the book Fear of food – a diary of mothering. By introducing the term post/academic writing as a contemporary condition of multiple and shifting movements of interdisciplinary writing, feminist theorising, in the case of Bacchi, is analysed as a movement characterised by resistance, reflexivity and passion.

    'Women', Welfare, Textual Politics and Critique: An Invitation to a ThinkingWriting Methodology in the Study of Welfare (Republished dissertation originally published 2001)2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    What is the relationship between the social construction of different categories of ’women’ and the making of welfare states in specific moments of textual politics in a Nordic welfare state context? How is it possible to develop a methodology for critical (self)reflective thinking in the process of producing academic knowledge? In this dissertation the themes of ’women’ and welfare are analysed and interpreted within a textual context of Nordic welfare state thinking. How the meaning of welfare takes shape through the category of ’women’ is discussed and critiqued with attention to epistemological and methodological issues. Individual memory work is used as a way of developing crtical self-reflection on the way academisation operates through a female individual. Additionally, creative and reflective writing methodologies such as theatre, dialogue and letter writing is used to explore complex relationships of power in the process of producing knowledge. Livholts original, intellectually stimulating and accessible dissertation is an invitation to readers in social work, sociology, and gender studies, and more broadly of methodological interest for the critical study of welfare.

    Abstract [en]

    Research Outline

    This chapter constitute the third untimely academic novella in a trilogy of biographical narratives about a woman’s life, writing and desire to obtain a professor’s chair in the beginning of the twenty-first century, in Sweden. The diversity of forms used in creating as set of interwoven stories is inspired by poststructuralist and postcolonial feminist theory and literary fiction and by writing methodologies such as diary writing, memory work and poetic writing. The novella engages in some of the key aspects of Plummer’s ideas about a critical humanism with emphasis on the contribution from the fictional novella to explore complex relations of power. Writing water a story about resistance that shows how family, society and academia interact in the making of knowledge.

     

     

     Bullet points with methodology and key issues arising

    Gender and the telephone: Voice and emotions shaping and gendering space2013In: Human Technology, ISSN 1795-6889, E-ISSN 1795-6889, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 157-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the field of communication studies the topic of telephony and the gendering of space via voice and emotions have received limited attention. The focus of this article is on how telephone conversations are mediated by voice and emotions, which in turn shape and gender social space. The methodology is a collaborative autoethnographic design based on diary notes and memory work. Two central themes emerge from the findings, which explain how space becomes gendered when using the telephone. The first explores the voice and relations of power and the second examines the interstices between work, caring and the telephone. Our findings reveal the central role of work and caring and how these spaces are constantly being transgressed and transformed as the mobile phone becomes an important appendage for sensory perceptions of hearing/listening/voice. We argue that these themes point toward the crucial impact of emotions in the construction of multiple and gendered spatialities of telephony.

    Att skriva emancipatoriskt: Akademisk dialog för två röster2003In: Kvinnovetenskaplig tidskrift, ISSN 0348-8365, no 1, p. 7-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    This article is an attempt to open a discussion on feminist academic writing, its obstacles and its emancipatory potential. the form aof the article is a dialogue, in ten parts, for two voices. By choosing this form we want to find a strategy for avoiding the reductive and hierarchal dualism that all too often characterises academic thinking and writing. The geography of writing ina Swedish academic context is described as a contradictory field for feminists, and Shadowland is used as a metaphor for a landscape that demands well kept secrets about the feudal conditions in academic life. Thes creates a split subject in the process of thinkingwriting - a her and me situation. The unknown story of Dre Jekyll and Ms Hyde (inspired by the more widely known novel Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by R.L. Stevenson) captures the dilemma. Stevenson's characterization of Mra Hyde as a person carrying an "unexpressed deformity" is used as a metaphor for the threefold split between "I", "you" and "she", sensed by so many female and feminist academics trying to assimilate personal, physical and emotional experiences in the thinking/writing process. The discourse of academic writing is imagined as a discourse of fear, where traditional form is created through unspoken expectations; a no-need-to-express-what-you-should-know infantilises alternative ways of thinking and writing at the same timeas it establishes academic homogenisation. The existence of a formula for the Right Way of Writing an Academic Text, whether it be a student paper or a doctoral thesis, is one of the most eagerly reproduced illusions, also among feminists. Here is a central question - and challenge - for every discussion on emancipatory writing. The liberation of words, genre, as well as style, is a necessary step in the direction of a non-hierarchical, anti-dualistic writing strategy. The article concludes by raising the issue fo the emancipatory potental of endings in academic texts and presents two possible endings and an untimely letter. The first ending is created in the form of theatre where the intention is to reconsider the construction of Other, Them, Us, We. The second ending follows the same theme in the form of an academic summary. The third ending, the 'untimely letter', describes the creative and unpredicatable outcome of the process of academic writing when working with form in different ways.

    Det ensamstående moderskapet är ett politiskt moderskap, väl etablerat både som begrepp och kategori i en välfärdspolitisk kontext. Men det etablerade är något som skapats i tid och rum – en social konstruktion som hela tiden förändras. Hur kan kategoriseringen utmanas och inbjuda tillreflektion? Denna studie av svensk välfärdspolitisk forskning och statliga utredningar visar hur ambitionen att få kunskap om ›en utsatt kategori‹ delvis kan få andra konsekvenser än de avsedda.
