Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to study how gender difference and ultimately female gender positioning are created and manifested in the heavy metal culture. The empirical material consists of single interviews and focus group interviews with heavy metal fans between the ages of 18 and 26. The overall finding is that, while gender is a movable position in general, women move their gender position to a greater extent than men as they are constantly forced to adhere to the male values of the heavy metal culture. Three dualities in the positioning of heavy metal women illustrate to this phenomenon: a whore-goddess paradigm based on the knowledge of the female heavy metal fan; the balancing act of “acting male” and “looking female”; and the gender “twilight zone” of being insufficiently male for heavy metal culture while being insufficiently female for the mainstream world.

Abstract [en]

Social work is a multi-dimensional and contradictory field of practice,which often leads to theoretical confusion. Another tendency within social work todayis the development of an evidence-based practice. This kind of social engineering,together with the theoretical confusion, might lead to the reproduction andstrengthening of dominant discourses and perspectives. Pointing out the need forcritical theory to transgress and resist hegemonic practices, the article aims topresent ideas on how to theoretically position social work practice within aframework of critical theory. The question is how to combine an ambition to developsuitable methods and to anchor social work in a sound social-scientific context withcritical theories concerning, for instance, gender, ethnicity, and class. It is suggestedthat a movement towards a more deconstructive and reflexive mode of thinking andpracticing social work, ‘doing social work’, would enable the field to become moreethical and reflexive.
