    Nursing under the skin: a netnographic study of metaphors and meanings in nursing tattoos2014In: Nursing Inquiry, ISSN 1320-7881, E-ISSN 1440-1800, Vol. 21, no 4, p. 318-326Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aims of this study were to present themes in nursing motifs as depicted in tattoos and to describe how it reflects upon nursing in popular culture as well as within professional nursing culture. An archival and cross-sectional observational study was conducted online to search for images of nursing tattoos that were freely available, by utilizing the netnographic methodology. The 400 images were analyzed in a process that consisted of four analytical steps focusing on metaphors and meanings in the tattoos.

    The findings present four themes: angels of mercy and domination; hegemonic nursing technology; embodying the corps; and nurses within the belly of the monster. The tattoos serve as a mirror of popular culture and the professional culture of nurses and nursing practice within the context of body art. Body art policy statements have been included in nursing personnel dress code policies. Usually these policies prohibit tattoos that are sexist, symbolize sex or could contribute and reproduce racial oppression. The results show that the tattoos can be interpreted according to several layers of meanings in relation to such policies. We therefore stress that this is an area highly relevant for further analyses in nursing research.

    Trick or Treat?: en studie om argument för och emot halloween i Sverige2003Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Trots att halloween som festsed saknar historisk förankring ur svenskt perspektiv, har den i Sverige mycket snabbt fått bredare spridning i och med att allt fler människor deltar i firandet. Så finns det andra som känner motstånd och medvetet väljer att inte delta. Oavsett uppfattning finns oftast underliggande grundantaganden som utgör en slags bas för individens sätt att se, vilka jag vill ”synliggöra”. Frågan som uppsatsen söker besvara är svenskars argument för och emot halloween. Vad är det egentligen vi firar och varför? Uppsatsens huvudsakliga syfte är således att undersöka, vidare presentera en klargörande tolkning av människors inställning till seden.

    Gör om mig: åldrande och kvinnlighet i en populär mediegenre2015In: Budkavlen, ISSN 0302-2447, p. 71-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I medierna finns ett flertal versioner av gör-om-mig formatet. I dessa ges kvinnor råd om hur de ska kunna förändra sin stil. Experter ska hjälpa henne att uppdatera sig och att framstå som den bästa versionen av sig själv. Programmen och artiklarna har blivit kritiserade för att de disciplinerar kvinnor. Genus och att göra normativ kvinnlighet är centralt i programmen. Det är också ålder. I den här artikeln undersöker jag dels ett inslag i tv-programmet Go'kväll, dels böcker som ger råd till kvinnor om stil och kläder. Jag granskar vilka råd man ger till den äldre kvinnan just utifrån hennes ålder.

    Hur kan man förstå att formatet är så lockande och har både så många sökanden och så stor publik? Vilken mening ges åldrande i programmen respektive böckerna och vad säger de om kulturellt meningsskapande kring åldrande och kvinnlighet?

    Old? Older? Elderly? Co-constructing ageing in wardrobe research2015In: 33. Nordic Ethnology and Folklore Conference: Copenhagen 2015, 2015, p. 51-51Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In an ongoing study I use wardrobe interviews to explore experiences of ageing and cultural meaning making of age. The informants, aged between 62 and 94, talked of style preferences in dress and of norms in relation to age appropriateness and to bodily changes.

    In my paper I will discuss age categorisations from a methodological point of view. Different divisions have been discussed for when people are to be considered “old”. In my research I have used 60 as a lower age limit, with no upper one. The study’s purpose is to explore, problematize and nuance experiences of ageing from an emic perspective, with attention to ethnographic detail: letting the women’s voices be heard. I do not see the age category of “older” or “elderly” as monolithic but as diverse. For instance, health and mobility have an impact on feeling old, so that an informant in her sixties, with health problems express feeling old and tired, whereas a chronologically older and healthy informant does not. When submitting articles information of the informants’ chronological age is often requested by reviewers. Specifying this in a sense contributes to making age an explanation and description.

    In my presentation I will focus on different categorisations in terms of age, used by the informants and in theoretical literature. I intend to explore dilemmas and ambiguities around this, in relation to work in an ethnographic tradition, not striving for finite answers but opening for fruitful questioning and discussions.

    Squirrels and nostalgia: About wardrobe collections of older women2015In: Ageing, culture and identity / [ed] Lena Karlsson, Marianne Liliequist, Anna Sofia Lundgren, Karin Lövgren & Angelika Sjöstedt Landén, Umeå: Umeå University , 2015, p. 95-120Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus in this article has been on how older women, between 62 and 94 years old, talk of their wardrobe collections. The key questions guiding the analyses of the women’s narratives have been: how did they describe their wardrobe collections; how did they talk of sorting through their garments and organising them; and how did they explain clothes kept but no longer used. The aim has been to let the women’s voices be heard and to give their perspective. Sorting through the wardrobe was an ongoing task, where some felt burdened by owning too many items of clothing, whereas others talked of the importance of remembering through items kept. Garments are like materialised photo albums, loaded with memories. Several informants showed a pragmatic side, emphasising that it was important that garments were put to use and not wasted. References to utility and thrift intersected with emotional ones. The informants used self-distancing descriptions, jokingly referring to themselves as ‘squirrels’ or nostalgic, reluctant to sort through their often substantial clothes collections and throw things away. Clothes also represented the pleasure inherent in the aesthetic work of combining outfits and making an effort to wear something appropriate for each different occasion.

    The wooden churches of Chiloé2001In: Wooden handwork/wooden carpentry: European restoration sites: Proceedings of Culture 2000 project: Italian action / [ed] C. Bertolini Cestari, Paris: Elsevier SAS , 2001, p. 111-115Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    16 churches out of about 60 representing the so-called Chiloé School of Wooden Religious Architecture were inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List in October 2000. The article launches the initial project ideas in relation to the need of achieving a more profound understanding and knowledge of these churches, both as physical buildings including their technical status, need of maintenance, etc, and their socio-cultural importance to the local community.

    Voluntary Motherhood?: a study on seven Lebanese SOS Children’s Village Mothers2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this project is to study the women involved in the SOS Children’s Villages; the influence of the association on their views on life, as seen from a human-rights and a religious perspective. Questions such as why they chose to work with the association and what it gives them to do so are treated in this study.

    My goal has been to study and present different aspects of something so important, but yet so unfamiliar. The method used in this project is minor field studies, which means visiting the villages, living with the families and observing their daily lives. The means of acquiring the information necessary for this study is by qualitative interviews with the mothers.

    A theoretical framework has been used as a complement to the study, and it is also used to bring greater understanding to the SOS mothers and how they have shaped their lives.

    My ambition with this essay is to bring out their individual experiences on how they view their own lives at present and what meaning life has given them. I have used seven of the 14 interviews conducted.

    The outcome shows that several factors play important roles as to why the mothers decided to work with the association. Such factors were socioeconomic and sociopsyhologic factors. Other conclusions that were drawn after this field trip were that the women are very vulnerable to the social situation in Lebanon. They need someone to support them since the men are the primary providers. If the women do not find someone to marry they need to find another source for provision and the SOS children’s Association is one way to go. The sense of Coherence that these women had was indeed strong, they felt meaningfulness in what they did, they had comprehended the situations at hand and could manage the situations as predictable, and they have the confidence to know that everything will work out in the best way possible.

    Vanliga väsen i vår folktro1997Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här arbetet handlar om väsen i den gamla folktron. För att begränsa mig i ämnet om gammal folktro och sägner, så håller jag mig till det gamla bondesamhället på 1800-talet. Jag var nyfiken på vilka väsen som man kunde hitta i våra trakter, och vilka egenskaper de hade. Efter att ha samtalat med Ann Nilsén som är etnolog på länsmuseet i Gävle, så fick jag en klarare bild av vilka väsen man kunde hitta häromkring.

    Jag inriktade mig så på dessa, rået, vittran, trollen, tomten och vättarna. Det uppenbarade sig att de flesta av dessa väsen visade sig ha nästan identiska egenskaper. De förväxlades ofta med varandra, mycket beroende på om sägnen berättades i norra eller södra Sverige. Om man t.ex. hade en hustomte på en gård i Norrland, så kunde det vara en vätte med samma egenskaper, utseende och funktion på en gård i södra Sverige. Tomten och vättarna omnämndes många gånger i samma sägen, antigen var det tomten eller vättarna som förekom.

    Det finns mycket moral och pekpinnar för hur folk i allmänhet borde vara mot varandra. Detta tillskrev man istället ”småfolket”. Ofta var det säkert lättare att respektera deras åsikter än den närmaste grannens, eftersom det gick illa om man misshagade något väsen.

    Det finns många olika samlingsnamn för de här väsena. Jag har själv valt att kalla dessa varelser för ”småfolket”. De underjordiska eller de osynliga, är också populära benämningar. Vad man än väljer att kalla dem, så beskrivs de ha samma egenskaper i hela landet.

    Det finns vissa teorier om hur dessa väsen uppstått. Man trodde i en medeltida sägen, att Lucifers änglar regnade ner i tre dagar på jorden. En del föll ner i skogen och blev skogsrån. De som föll ner i bergen blev bergstroll. Andra regnade ner på hus och tak och blev tomtegubbar.
