    “It is controlling, but you don’t really care.”: Researchers’ perceptions of legitimation of research policy2024In: Science and Public Policy, ISSN 0302-3427, E-ISSN 1471-5430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Starting from the tension between scientific autonomy and state governing in research policy, the aim of this article is to examine how researchers who apply for funding in Sweden perceive the legitimate grounds for a new research policy in which sex and gender perspectives are integrated as criteria in assessing scientific quality. Our results show that researcher’s perception of themselves, and of the purpose of research, is compatible with dominant ideals in contemporary academic landscape, where knowledge is treated as a deliverable to external stakeholders or to meet politically formulated goals. However, according to researchers, the legitimate sources of policy influence originate from their own profession or the common interest of the people, explicitly expressed by citizens. Researchers are questioning, and find strategies to avoid, top-down state governing.

    Inceldom and involuntary singlehood in times of precarious love2022Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, a line of serious incidents of violence towards women have been committed by men who self-identify as involuntary celibates, or ‘incels’. Incels are part of what is described as a political sub-culture or online community, marked by misogyny and driven by affects like resentment, shame and revenge. The incel communities consist of men who feel they are unable to form romantic and sexual attachments with women, who blame women and feminism for this failure and – contrary to a feminist world view – describe this as a proof of a contemporary gynocentric order where men are victims and women powerful. This presentation draws the theoretical contours of a research project on involuntary celibacy and singlehood that is in its starting phase. While the emerging body of incel research and commentary is focused on the ideological distortions at play in incel men’s descriptions of themselves as victims on a mating market where women hold the power (Chang 2020; Menzie 2020; Witt 2020), we set out to take incel men’s claims about vulnerability more seriously, analysing them in light of structural transformations of the conditions of intimacy which have made intimacy an increasingly precarious matter. We situate our analysis of incelhood within research highlighting that post-industrial western societies find themselves in a state of what we call ‘precarious love’, in which, due to cultural, economic and technological changes, love and erotic bonding has become both increasingly important for people’s sense of security and well-being and increasingly characterized by insecurity (Bauman 2003; Gunnarsson et al 2018; Illouz 2012, 2019). In our presentation we aim to show why and how the incel phenomenon and broader experiences of involuntary celibacy and singlehood can be fully understood and explained only in light of these transformations of the conditions of intimacy.

    Ethics and political imagination in feminist theory2021In: Feminist Theory, ISSN 1464-7001, E-ISSN 1741-2773, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 268-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses three different conceptions of ethics within contemporary feminist theory and how they depict the connection between ethics and politics. The first position, represented by Wendy Brown, mainly describes ethics as a sort of anti-political moralism and apolitical individualism, and hence as a turn away from politics. The second position, represented by Saba Mahmood, discusses ethics as a precondition for politics, while the third position, represented by Vikki Bell, depicts it as the ‘external consciousness’ of the political, and as destabilising political discourse by confronting it with singularity and ‘radical’ difference. Though they represent distinct positions, the article argues, all three suffer from a tendency to reify ethics by failing to give a contextualised account of it. The article then introduces the ethical perspective of Judith Butler, arguing that she – while offering both a transhistorical and a contextualised dimension – tends to psychologise and individualise ethics and politics. The last part of the article introduces Terry Eagleton and what, in a Marxist vein, could be called a ‘materialist ethics’ or an ‘ethics of socialism’, and argues that this way of framing the relationship between ethics and politics provides a solution to the trap of reification identified in the three described positions. This part also discusses how Eagleton’s theory relates to – but also differs from – arguments made by Butler. One advantage of Eagleton’s work, the article argues, is that it does not psychologise and individualise ethics and politics as Butler’s work does.

    Feminist alliances against precarity or capitalism? A continuation of the Butler–Fraser debate2023In: Acta Sociologica, ISSN 0001-6993, E-ISSN 1502-3869Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The relation between different forms of oppressive structures has been an object of dispute throughout the history of feminism. One of the most influential debates devoted to this issue is the one between Judith Butler and Nancy Fraser during the 1990s. Although the debate attracted a great deal of attention, and both thinkers have subsequently developed their theories by introducing novel concepts to describe oppression as well as the conditions of contemporary emancipatory movements, they have not continued to engage in each other's work. This article offers a critical reading of the positions that Fraser and Butler took in the 1990s debate, as well as an identification of shifts in their thinking ensuing from the debate. A particular interest of the article is their conceptualisations of the grounds for political alliances among groups with distinct experiences of oppression. The article not only offers a critique of both Butler's and Fraser's positions in the 1990s debate but also argues that the way in which Fraser's trajectory has come to directly address the issue of the capitalist social order, and which can also be read as an implicit self-critique, is more satisfactory than Butler's later work on precarity.

    Abstract [sv]

    Svenska feminister har ofta avfärdat den franska feministen Hélène Cixous som särartsfeminist. Detta beror på att man har läst hennes litterära, experimentella sätt att skriva alltför bokstavligt och därför missat potentialen i hennes verk.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the intricate relationship between feminism and critique, as it is played out in interviews conducted with self-identified Swedish feminists. It discusses how the informants describe feminism as a critical endeavour and understand feminists as critical subjects in connection to the neo-liberal context in which the informants articulate their feminist position and identity. It also analyzes how the informants understand critique as something that both complicates and enables feminist politics, relating the discussion to a conceptualization of the political – underlying the work of Wendy Brown, Chantal Mouffe and Nancy Fraser – as a combination of ongoing agonistic struggles and formations of collective normative projects based on discursive exclusions.

    Mellan jaget och världen: Feminism och etik under nyliberala villkor2019Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall purpose of this study is to investigate how the tension between feminism as an ethical and political project is brought into light under neoliberal conditions. More specifically, the aim is to, through 21 interviews with 12 self-defined left-wing Swedish feminists whose living conditions, political action and self-understanding are conditioned by the economic, political and ideological imprints of neo-liberalism, study potential joints and crimes between feminism and neoliberalism and how these relate to the tensions between ethics and politics that have been present long before the entry of neoliberalism on the scene. The analysis is largely done in close dialogue with the feminist political thinkers Wendy Brown, Nancy Fraser and Chantal Mouffe, all of whom have devoted themselves to the relationship between ethics and politics and the effects of neoliberalism on political movements and political subjectivity. It also engages in academic work on neoliberal subjectivity and ideology and progressive movements.

    Sex and Gender Perspectives as Quality? On the Controversy About Gender and Science in the Swedish Research Debate2024In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In a 2016 bill, the Swedish government tasked state-governed research councils with incorporating sex and gender perspectives (SGP) into their assessment of research quality. The present article examines the response to the bill and subsequent measures in Swedish public debate from 2016–2021, as well as justifications for such measures in preceding policy documents. The analysis focuses on how different arguments in the debate articulate the relationship between research, politics, and quality and how these articulations can be analysed with the help of theoretical perspectives on the contemporary production of knowledge as well as previous scholarly work on gender mainstreaming. The article demonstrates that most critics describe politics, research, and quality as incompatible. The defenders argue for the implementation of SGP by invoking either a quality perspective and/or an equality perspective. While some actors argue that SGP is of significance only when it enhances quality, others point to the political value of the criteria, adhering to a post-academic emphasis on the societal value of science.

    Who knows? On the epistemic status of experience in sugar-dating research2023In: Feminist Theory, ISSN 1464-7001, E-ISSN 1741-2773Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sugar dating has gained extensive media coverage over the last couple of years, often being depicted as a veiled form of prostitution / sex work. While similar dating arrangements encompassing some sort of economic compensation are well researched in an African and Asian context, sugar dating has only garnered attention from researchers in the Global North during the last decade, in the wake of a proliferation of websites facilitating the practice. In light of the contested nature of the phenomenon, in this article we critically assess how knowledge about sugar dating is constructed in the emerging literature on the topic in the Global North, with a particular focus on the role attributed to sugar daters' own experiential accounts. Alongside furthering the discourse on sugar dating by unravelling the epistemological underpinnings of existing research, we utilise the case of sugar-dating research to elaborate on the continued relevance of feminist debates on the epistemological status of experience. We call for a more comprehensive theoretical examination of experience in sugar-dating research and posit that some versions of feminist standpoint theory, as well as strands in feminist phenomenology, provide valuable theoretical tools for navigating between understanding experience as an ideological construct and/or as a privileged foundation of knowledge.

    Understanding Power and Performing Resistance: Swedish Feminists, Civil Society Voices, Biopolitics and “Angry” Men2013In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 21, no 4, p. 264-279Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses feminist resistance in relation to different concepts of power. In particular, it analyses current debates within Swedish feminism in order to understand what perceptions of power and resistance are being harboured within these discussions. Within the Swedish feminist debate it has been suggested that the equality debate must be radicalized, creating real change instead of policy reports and political party programmes. Others, however, have argued that we must not abandon equality politics for “conflict, struggle, and revolt”. This debate is discussed from different theories of power and resistance, and we argue that different forms of power become entangled with different forms of resistance, thus creating manifold and messy forms of resistance.

    Hbtq-personers upplevelser av bemötande inom hbtq-diplomerade vårdverksamheter i Västra Götalandsregionen2019Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med hbtq-diplomeringen är att säkerställa rätten till god arbetsmiljö och likvärdig vård för hbtq-personer. Vi har tagit del av upplevelser av diplomerade verksamheter genom intervjuer med hbtq-identifierade personer som har besökt en eller flera hbtq-diplomerade verksamheter, hbtq-identifierade personer som arbetar på en hbtq-diplomerad verksamhet samt personer – oavsett sexuell orientering och könsidentitet – som arbetar på en diplomerad verksamhet. Vi har använt de perspektiv och den kunskap som kommit fram i intervjuerna för att diskutera hur Västra Götalandsregionen kan stärka sitt arbete med att uppfylla de mänskliga rättigheterna. Merparten av intervjupersonerna är positiva till diplomeringen. Anställda beskriver hur diplomeringen har skapat en medvetenhet på arbetsplatsen och bidragit till att hbtq-frågor kan sättas på agendan. Hur väl en verksamhet kan fortsätta arbetet med normmedvetet bemötande efter diplomeringen beror på verksamhetens förutsättningar. Personalomsättning och brist på tid gör det svårare att upprätthålla kunskap och rutiner. De hbtq-identifierade anställda upplever att de får större ansvar för att implementera ett hbtq-perspektiv än sina kollegor. Några av de anställda uttrycker behov av mer konkret stöd och rådgivning i relation till sin specifika verksamhet. Patienterna beskriver exempel på vad de tycker är ett gott bemötande på hbtq-diplomerade verksamheter. Det kan handla om att personalen har ett öppet och neutralt språk som gör det möjligt att ha fokus på den rådgivning eller behandling som patienten sökt för. Patienterna ger även exempel på dåligt bemötande, där personalen till exempel har förutsatt att patienten lever i en heterosexuell relation. Några patienter lyfter även att de hade önskat att personalen hade mer allmänna sakkunskaper kopplade till hbtq-frågor och till exempel kunde ge stöd i att navigera inom hälso- och sjukvårdssystemet.

    Snåriga sårbarheter i nyliberala tider: Om relationen mellan sårbarhet, agens och nyliberalism2019In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 40, no 1, p. 49-69Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A central question within contemporary gender studies is how vulnerability can be understood in more positive and politically progressive terms, rather than being posed as the opposite of resistance. the attempt to redefine vulnerability is especially present in the work of contemporary vulnerability scholars, in their pursuit to analyze and resist neo-liberal ideals and neo-liberal politics. this approach has, however, been criticized by scholars who find the tools provided by vulnerability scholars too closely tied to the neo-liberal ideals that they have set out to oppose. With the help of two empirical studies, focused on children and old people’s political agency within a swedish context, this article elaborates on how vulnerability studies supplies/does not supply sufficient tools to study inequalities within a neo-liberal framework. the article further argues that the political significance of vulnerability, and the political efficacy of using vulnerability as a political starting point, is highly context bound and suggests that there are other, potentially more politically radical, points of departure.

    Equality equals quality? Tolkningar av kön- och genusperspektiv som indikator på vetenskaplig kvalitet i forskningsansökningar2022In: Feminist policy analysis, 2022Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Svensk forskningspolitik för att motverka könsdiskriminering inom akademin, som tidigare huvudsakligen fokuserade på anställningsvillkor och karriärvägar för kvinnor, har utvidgats med direktiv till de svenska forskningsråden om att integrera köns- och genusperspektiv i bedömningen av forskningsansökningars kvalitet. Förändringen i forskningspolitiken kan tolkas som en institutionalisering av feministisk vetenskapsteoretisk kritik. Samtidigt har liknande typ av direktiv stött på kritik från olika håll. Medan vissa menar att ett fokus på kön- och genusperspektiv som kvalitet innebär en avpolitisering av feministisk vetenskapskritik framhäver andra att det rör sig om en form av ideologiskt färgad styrning som leder till en politisering av forskningen som skadar både den akademiska friheten och forskningens kvalitet. Medan den ena kritiken handlar om att politiken är för frånvarande, menar den andra att den politiska styrningen snarare fungerar som en våt rödrosa filt på svensk forskning.

    Syftet med detta paper är att studera hur integrering av köns- och genusperspektiv som en indikator på vetenskaplig kvalitet tillämpas inom humaniora, samhällsvetenskap och utbildningsvetenskap, och vilken roll som politiska värden har i denna tillämpning. Utifrån en analys av beviljade forskningsansökningar och bedömningar mellan åren 2019–2021, studerar föreliggande paper hur kön- och genusperspektiv legitimeras, vilken roll politiska värden spelar i denna legitimering, samt huruvida det sätt som genus- och könsperspektiv mobiliseras i ansökningarna och bedömningarna kan sägas utmana traditionella förståelser av vetenskaplig objektivitet och neutralitet, liksom hur de går att förstå i relation till en feministisk vetenskapsteoretisk tradition.

    Resistance, Materiality and the Spectre of Cartesianism: A Contribution to the Critique of Feminist New Materialism2018In: Journal of Resistance studies, E-ISSN 2003-3265, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 54-83Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An important camp within the emerging field of resistance studies has been characterised by a tendency to study and theorise matters of culture, language, and discourse at the expense of matter itself. For researchers interested in feminist resistance, feminist new materialism – with its focus on the entanglements of ‘natureculture’, matter, the body, sexual difference, agency, and change – might appear to offer productive theoretical tools that can help shift the focus towards materiality. Through a reading of selected works of influential feminist new materialists, this article critically analyses how resistance can be articulated within the theoretical scope of feminist new materialism. While the authors agree with the identified gains of a material turn within resistance studies and in relation to feminist resistance, it is shown that new materialism is of little help in this regard. In a first step, it is argued that the new materialist attempt to undermine the modern and postmodern forms of Cartesian dualism ends up reproducing its fundamental premise through the equation of difference and independence on the one hand, and of identity and unity on the other. In a second step, the authors argue that the failed attempt to challenge Cartesian dualism gives rise to two theoretical problems with important implications for feminist resistance. On the one hand, in its efforts to transcend older versions of materiality as unalterable and constant, feminist new materialism comes to privilege change and the register of historical specificity at the expense of limits and the register of the transhistorical, in a way that disguises resistance rooted in the relatively stable condition of vulnerability. On the other hand, in its attempt to supersede the difference between nature and humanity by granting agency to matter, feminist new materialism is led to sacrifice intentional action in a way that undermines core aspects of the emerging field of resistance studies.

    Feminism as Power and Resistance: An Inquiry into Different Forms of Swedish Feminist Resistance and Anti-Genderist Reactions2018In: Social Inclusion, ISSN 2183-2803, E-ISSN 2183-2803, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 82-94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how resistance and power are intertwined within the field of mainstream Swedish feminism, by analyzing some of its more visible expressions and strategies. These feminist resistance strategies could be described as circulating resistance (e.g., the #metoo campaign), public assemblies, the more subtle “disciplinary resistance”, and state feminism. The article illustrates how these different forms of resistance fuel different reactions from movements that reiterate different discourses of “anti-genderism”. In addition, some forms of feminism (state feminism and feminist disciplinary resistance) sometimes develop into, or overlap with, different technologies of power.

    Collective identity, solidarity, and sisterhood in the ASAB cleaning women's strike and the Women's day off in Iceland2023In: Labor history, ISSN 0023-656X, E-ISSN 1469-9702, p. 1-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years feminist movements have increasingly employed the form and rhetoric of strikes in framing their protests. The rise of the women’s strike movement has been seen as an indicator of an invigorated wave of feminist activism that focuses, to a greater extent, on structural economic injustices. The aim of this article is to provide a historical aspect to the growing research on strikes as a multifaceted form of protest. The article analyses articulations of collective identity, solidarity, and sisterhood in two different kinds of ‘women’s strikes’ that took place in the Nordic region during the mid-1970s; the ASAB cleaners’ strikes in Sweden during 1974–1975 and the Icelandic Women’s Day Off that took place on October 24, 1975. The article explores how the relationship between gender and class was conceptualized by participants, organizers, and bystanders. We employ these cases to study how solidarity and sisterhood across differences among women might have appeared in practice while at the same time reflecting internal tensions and varying interests. Moreover, the article reflects on the specific form of the strikes and the potential impact their respective form might have had on the political articulations that came out of them.
