    Childbearing and Marriage: Investigating the Importance of Context for Meaning-Making of First-Time Marriage2019In: Marriage and Family Review, ISSN 0149-4929, E-ISSN 1540-9635, Vol. 55, no 1, p. 38-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Fluid Positions and Changing Strategies: A Narrative Analysis of How Parents Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence Talk about Their Contact with Social Services2019In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 172-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Intersectional perspectives of house owner narratives on climate risks2019In: Journal of Risk Research, ISSN 1366-9877, E-ISSN 1466-4461Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Platsens betydelse vid borgerlig ritualisering2018In: REHN, 6-7 september 2018 i Umeå, Sverige., 2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Platsens betydelse för hur ritdeltagare skapar mening av kyrkliga livsriter, som dop, vigslar och begravningar, är känt från tidigare forskning. Där framkommer bland annat att kyrkorummet bidrar till en känsla av högtidlighet som många ritdeltagare uppskattar och eftersträvar. Platsens betydelse vid borgerliga motsvarigheter till dessa riter är däremot mindre utforskat. Syftet med denna presentation är att undersöka platsens betydelse för meningsskapandet av namngivningsceremonier, borgerlig vigsel och borgerlig begravning, med särskilt fokus på de förutsättningar som gäller i det nordliga området.

    Presentationen utgår från en pilotstudie om borgerlig ritualisering i Sverige. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av intervjuer, av vilka flertalet skedde i Sveriges nordliga delar. Studien synliggör hur ritdeltagare i borgerlig ritualisering såväl kan knyta an till som uttrycka motstånd mot religiösa organisationer och deras trosinnehåll. Platsen har betydelse för hur detta sker. Vidare kan den borgerliga ritens avsaknad av givna rituella rum upplevas såväl befriande som begränsande för ritdeltagaren. Å ena sidan möjliggör avsaknad av självklara platser för ritualisering av borgerliga livsriter unika former av identitetsuttryck och religionsmöten, å andra sidan kan det upplevas begränsa det rituella uttrycket.

    Narratives of climate risks in relation to housing2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study is a part of the research project The insurance industry and climate change: Short- and long-term consequences of home owner's understandings of risk, ability to pay and risk behaviour. The purpose of this paper is to get a deeper understanding of how homeowners’ construct risk of climate change in relation their own homes. Interviews with 27 households including 35 individuals in five regions in Sweden have been made. The interviewees live in one family houses; some in old ones and others in new built houses, some live at the countryside and others in cities. The thematic narrative analysis of the results reveal that social categories such as gender, class, age, educational level and geographic setting intersect in the construction of risk. Several different narratives are discovered in the material, in which the construction of risk of climate change in relation to the homes of the narrators is made in altered ways.

    Berättelser om klimatrisker och boende: Sociala strukturers betydelse för hur bostadsägare förhåller sig till klimatrisker i relation till sina bostäder2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten redovisar resultat från en del av ett projekt om hur bostadsägare uppfattar och hanterar klimatrisker i relation till sina bostäder. Syftet med delprojektet är att få en fördjupad förståelse för bostadsägares riskuppfattningar och riskbeteenden samt hur dessa relaterar till olika sätt att resonera om försäkringsfrågor. Som ett led i detta undersöker vi hur olika berättelser om risk skapas i relation till sociala och rumsliga strukturer. Studien har genomförts på lokal nivå i områden som betraktas som utsatta för klimatrelaterade risker i större eller mindre omfattning, såväl i stad som glesbygd. En tredjedel av de 44 intervjuade personerna bor i nybyggda hus och resten bor i äldre hus. De flesta intervjuer har utförts som medföljande observationer, där vi besökt bostadsägarna i deras hem och låtit dem berätta om hur de uppfattar och hanterar klimatrelaterade risker i förhållande till bostadens utformning och lokalisering samt hur de resonerar om olika försäkringsfrågor. Vid analysen av materialet har intervjuerna kategoriserats i totalt sju så kallade riskberättelser, baserat på olika förhållningssätt till klimatrelaterade risker. För att förstå hur olika uppfattningar om risk skapas i relation till sociala och rumsliga strukturer har vi använt intersektionell riskteori vid analysen av de olika riskberättelserna. Resultaten indikerar att individens sociala och rumsliga kontext har betydelse för såväl riskuppfattning som riskbeteende och attityd till försäkringar vilket skapar olika förutsättningar för vilken beredskap försäkringstagare har i fråga om klimatrelaterade risker. Samhället lägger idag ett stort ansvar på hushållen att själva förebygga och hantera skador orsakade av väderrelaterade händelser. Våra resultat visar att människor med hög utbildning, goda ekonomiska möjligheter och/eller hantverksskicklighet troligen klarar sig bra i ett sådant system eftersom de har såväl kunskap som ekonomisk möjlighet att göra praktiska och ekonomiska åtgärder för att skydda sig mot olika former av risker. Även kön har betydelse för hur människor uppfattar och hanterar klimatrisker i relation till bostaden eftersom hus och försäkringsfrågor av många betraktas vara männens ansvarsområde. Lågavlönade, ensamstående kvinnor i riskutsatta områden och personer med dålig hälsa riskerar stå utan skydd i ett samhälle där bostadsägaren bär det främsta ansvaret för sin och husetssäkerhet.

    Stories of Victimization: Self-Positioning and Construction of Gender in Narratives of Abused Women2019In: Journal of Interpersonal Violence, ISSN 0886-2605, E-ISSN 1552-6518, Vol. 34, no 21-22, p. 4687-4712Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.
