    Abstract [en]

    Departing from contemporary femme movements, this essay discusses some ”surface tensions” within feminist and queer theory concerning the subject of femininity and in particular its relationship to superficiality and surfaces. Invoking the term ”surface tension”, drawn from chemistry, it suggests that it is the tension between inside/depth and outside/impression that produces the image of a surface and that this metaphor can be used to understand tensions around the very topic of the seemingly fleeting and superficial. By exploring femme as simultaneously a body of flesh and of knowledge, the article presents femme as a feminist figuration that might shed new light on understandings of both femininity and feminist history. Through re-reading some feminist classics on the topic of femininity, the essay discusses some of the ways that it has become tied to superficiality and also proposes that in fact, femininity is no superficial matter. Drawing on multi-sited examples of how contemporary femmes understand, incorporate and embody feminist histories the essay then proposes some ways that we might reconsider such assumptions both politically and theoretically. As a contribution to critical femininity studies and to écriture femme-inine, the essay thus creatively strives to simultaneously refigure femme within a larger register of the genre of femininity, reconsider the place of feminist archives and embodied memories, and reconceptualize the alleged surface/superficiality of femininity through the concept of somatechnical femmebodiment.

    Abstract [en]

    The Baltic German women’s movement was deeply involved in the Baltic German national project between 1905 and 1919. By that time the traditional elite position of the Baltic Germans in the Baltic provinces of Imperial Russia was increasingly challenged and questioned, also with violent means. Therefore the Baltic Germans felt threatened, and the women’s organisations saw as their special mission to protect and advocate their own national character. Using Nira Yuval-Davis’s theoretical framework regarding a gendered understanding of national projects, as well as a hermeneutical approach, this article examines the relationship between the Baltic German women’s movement and the Baltic German national project between 1905 and 1919. Three examples are analysed: the establishment of the Frauenbunde in 1905, especially the Deutsche Frauenbund zu Riga; the tea evenings arranged by the Frauenbund; and finally their petition for a German annexation of the Baltic Provinces in 1917. In the endeavour to advocate their own group, the Baltic Germans drew heavily on their 700-year history and their self-image as a civilizing force. The Frauenbund worked hard to stabilise the group, for instance by actively trying to prevent that the poorer segment of the group lost their German-ness and disappeared into the Latvian nation.

    Abstract [en]

    The intention of this article is to follow Elizabeth Grosz’ invitation to explore some of the ways that time constructions and time metaphors attain significance in contemporary feminist theory. Each history includes and produces different temporal structures. How these temporal structures work, the value ascribed to them, and their implications for feminist historiography, is discussed by looking at various examples of writing contemporary feminist history. How is the recent history between the 1970’s and the present of Swedish feminist theory portrayed? Using Claire Hemmings’ historiography of Anglo-American contemporary feminist theory, the article traces similar patterns in the way the development of Swedish feminism is described. The article shows that the common way to write the history of feminist theory in terms of breaks and turning points are deeply problematic. Basically these metaphors rest on a conception of time as serial and hierarchical. That the time is “out of joint” is a prerequisite for feminist work. Feminist theorization must be untimely in Nietzsche’s sense. The later part of the article shows how concepts like untimeliness, anachronism and Derrida’s concept of “hauntology”, along with contemporary queer theoretical research on the literary Gothic, offer alternative constructions of time, which might make it possible to see feminist pioneers, not as specters either to be revenged or silenced, but as ghosts, as un-deads in a positive sense.

    Abstract [en]

    Based on a national Swedish survey among former gender studies students followed by focus group interviews, this article investigates the students’ perspectives on gender studies and work. We ask how they understand their education in between generic critical knowledge and the labor market. How can the students’ backgrounds and talk about gender studies and work be understood intersectionally? What does it mean for the future of gender studies? The analysis is based on intersectional subject positions as developed by Dorthe Staunæss (2003) and compares the results with other critical feminist studies of higher education (Ahmed 2012; Berggren 2006; Mählck 2013; Orupabo 2014). The analytical method uses the concepts “gap” (Åse 2000), ”in sync” (Staunæss 2010) and “comfortable” (Ahmed 2010) in order to understand the contradicting results of the survey and talk in the focus groups. In our analysis we discuss the gaps the students identify between their studies and their experiences of finding work on the labor market as both significant for the humanities and social sciences in general and as specific for gender studies. The gender studies students are however employed and find their education useful on the labor market, a success that they also ascribe (partly) to their privileged background in terms of class and ethnicity. Among the participants persons with academically educated parents and parents born in Sweden were over-represented. The article also discusses what this skewed participation in gender studies education may mean for the discipline and the labor market for gender studies students. Finally it proposes four directions for the future development of gender studies.

    Flicka och tjej: Språk och samhälle i förändring?2013In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 2-3, p. 23-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Different concepts often evoke various emotions, positive or negative. The emotions can be related to the understanding and the meaning of the concepts. Two such concepts dealing with femininity are girl (‘flicka’) and chick (‘tjej’) and the aim of this study is to linguistically investigate the meaning of these concepts in order to understand the emotions they evoke. The emotions relating to these concepts may have to do with changes over time and therefore I will also study how these concepts have changed over five decades. Theoretically I employ a socio-cultural perspective where language and society are seen as related, and how we use language is seen as a way of constructing society. Methodologically my study is in the field of corpus linguistics, since I use large computerized text-collections for the study of meaning. Meaning in this context is defined as something that is revealed in language use, more specifically, in frequency-based language patterns such as collocations, adjective attributes and lexical relations in relation to the two concepts. My conclusions are that the two concepts flicka and tjej are used very differently through the years. Flicka has decreased in importance – both quantitatively (less used) and qualitatively (in fewer different contexts/about fewer topics). Flicka is also related to more negative attributes, and is used in passive roles. At the same time tjej has increased in importance quantitatively (used more) and qualitatively (more contexts/subjects). Tjej is also at the same time used in relation to positive attributes and in active roles. The changes in usage of flicka and tjej can be seen as interrelated in that there seems to be a matter of a division of labour between the two concepts. Flicka and tjej are used in different contexts and with different functions, which could explain the different emotions towards the concepts.

    Klitoris orsakar orgasm: kön och sexualitet i svenska ordböcker2009In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 2-3, p. 121-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article deals with the construction of gender and sexuality in contemporary Swedish dictionaries. Feminist linguists have pointed out the reproductive force of dictionaries and shown their sexist attitudes towards women. Traditionally, dictionaries are compiled by men for men in a patriarchal society, based on the speech and writing of men. And dictionaries not only tell us about the views and attitudes of the society, they also actively reinforce and reproduce those views. Central words for sexual organs and sexual activities in nine Swedish dictionaries have been analysed. The analysis shows that the female sexuality is not made invisible or passive in a systematic way. For example, the clitoris is described as an active organ “causing orgasm” in two of the dictionaries and the definition of intercourse given in a dictionary intended for use in compulsory school is at least partly non-heterosexist. Dictionaries from the twenty-first century have also included a neutral colloquial word for the female genitalia – which has been thought of as absent in Swedish. All this can be interpreted as an effect of the relatively strong political influence of feminism, struggle for gender equity and the gay movement in Sweden in the past decade. And due to the reproductive force of the dictionaries, this is a good sign of progress.

    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the Swedish indefinite impersonal pronoun man has been replaced with en by feminist and norm-critical language users. This usage is an example of a burgeoning amount of Swedish feminist discursive work, and is in need of scrutiny and discussion. Through qualitative interviews with six users of the norm-critical pronoun en, the study seeks to understand its political potential and its limitations. The study concludes that the pronoun is used to advocate a more inclusive and gender neutral society, but that it also carries the potential to give its user a positive feminist identity. Furthermore, the study shows that pronouns also can work to exclude, and that users strategically adopt to this trait in their usage.

    Abstract [en]

    The intention of this article is to broaden the perception of women trafficked for sexual purposes. It is argued here that women can be both victims and actors; they may for example at the same time be main supporters of a household and passive objects in a merciless commerce. Victimhood is a social construction, it is stressed here. The image of a trafficking victim is a notion that the trafficked women is related to and ordered by. Those that fulfill the idea of trafficked women are more likely to get support and assistance. An empirical study of 9000 trafficked persons from seven different countries of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc is presented. An analysis of the respondents shows that there are differences among them, and intersectional relationships within the group of trafficked persons. Four sub-groups are identified, and various push and pull factors are linked to those sub-groups. Their specific needs and problems are discussed from different feminist theoretical perspectives, and applied on four case studies. The empirical study and its results may in-deepen the understanding of the variety amongst trafficked women and thus enable support and identification mechanisms to be evaluated to meet the needs of each subgroup under the umbrella of trafficked persons for sexual purposes.

    Ett svenskt bakslag: kontextskapande i diskussioner om Susan Faludis Backlash2015In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 36, no 1-2, p. 53-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1990s, the publication of Susan Faludi's Backlash. The Undeclared War Against American Women provoked discussions amongst literary critics in Sweden. Particularly feminist and Women's Studies communities embraced the book's thesis and probed whether Swedish women had experienced a backlash similar to the one revealed and conceptualised by Faludi. The aim of this article is to study the ways in which these communities used Backlash to interpret the political context in Sweden. A key player in the discussions of Backlash and in promoting the idea of a Swedish backlash was a newly established political network called Stödstrumporna (The Support Stockings). The network was initiated by a number of well-known Swedish feminists and as a reaction to the outcome of the general election in 1991, in which the representation of women in the Parliament decreased. In addition, recent national statistics had shown that the income gap between men and women had widened during the 1980's. Stödstrumporna interpreted both of these events as examples of a broader backlash against Swedish women. My supposition is that the labelling of specific contexts as examples of backlash can be understood as a kind of context making. Through an intersectional analysis, this article inquires to what extent the naming of contexts produces ideas of nation and gender. In Historical Studies, context has been used as a way to conceptualise how historical events are products of the time and place in which they occur. Without disputing this view of context, this article argues that context to a large extent is a narrative produced by contemporary actors who have a vested interest in presenting a context, which promotes their own positions and agendas.

    Abstract [en]

    Departing from a posthuman feminist understanding of the body (as something always already technological), this article critically explores the design of birth simulators and how simulator design relates to cultural understandings of intimate couplings between female bodies and technologies. The focus is on the construction of simulators, their possibilities, limitations and meanings – and not on actual use in clinical settings. Then again, thinking about design for medical practices is thinking about use in the sense that design processes and practices always inscribe and anticipate use and users in certain ways (and not others). In particular, the article investigates the status of the “real” as well as of “realism” in the simulation world. How are these concepts used within medical simulation? Which are the consequences of this conceptualization for understandings of bodies and technologies? Would a posthuman feminist framework offer other, alternative ways of thinking techno-bodies? The article draws on a range of sources, notably technical manuals, instruction videos, as well as an interview with the simulator’s “founding father”, but it also take into account historical parallels and predecessors, as well as ways of imagining simulator bodies in popular science contexts.

    Abstract [en]

    Feminist game studies scholars are still few and far between, and little has been done in the intersection of queer theory and games. Informed by feminist discussions of affect, and of emotion, this article uses an ethnographic study of queer potentials in the MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game) World of Warcraft as its core example. The article develops an understanding of online gaming by investigating embodied experiences, affective investments and circulations within game spaces. Ultimately, it asks what an online game like World of Warcraft puts in motion, and what consequences such stirring may have for ways of thinking – and feeling – games, critically, yet sensitively. How do emotions circulate in and through games? How do corporeal desires and belongings map onto games? Could certain game spaces or moments of play be termed ‘queer’?

    Att måla med det vita bläcket: Monica Sjöö och Kosmos inom hennes livmoder2012In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 4, no 4, p. 105-128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article grapples with the painting Cosmos in her Womb from 1971, by the Swedish artist and British resident Monica Sjöö (1938-2005), which was recently acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm. Sjöö is an artist that is both at the centre of feminist art history and somewhat kept to one side; her work is often included in larger surveys of feminist art, yet rarely interpreted. The article argues that in order to approach the painting, one has to look at it from within its own time and the women’s movement in the 1970’s in which the artist was heavily involved.

    In her article from 1975 Hélèn Cixous calls for women to start writing in white ink, an ink that is coloured by the experience of being born in a woman’s body. Sjöö’s painting was created a few years before and also Sjöö was, during her whole career, engaged with the idea of the “woman’s experience”. 

    The article argues that in whichever way this painting is approached, by understanding it’s figure, it’s symbolism, or even the roughness of the placard-like material (paint on masonite), it all falls back on the political and spiritual quest of Monica Sjöö. There can be no analysis of this work without taking into account the political situation and the need for expressing the woman’s experience during the late 1960s and early 1970s.  The article is a close study of this particular piece which is approached from a four different points of view: the historical context of the painting within the women’s movement; the need to speak from a woman’s experience; the political and theoretical differences of representing the woman’s body in art and lastly the idea of protest presented through the painting.

    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the concept of ”strong women” in popular music and interrogates the idea of role models. Ideas of ”strong women” are analysed in the context of a contemporary Western society characterised by neo-liberalism and post-feminism. Advocacy of role models is regarded as an example of a political strategy that places the responsibility for social change on the individual. This is done from a feminist cultural theoretical perspective where discourse is seen as having an impact on material subject positions and where post-feminist culture is seen as part of contemporary discourse about Western women. The issue is discussed through the analysis of two empirical materials consisting of interviews; one about teenage girls’ music use and gender in everyday life and the other about female rockmusicians, mainly in their early twenties, participating in feminist music associations. In both studies the participants testify to a positive influence from female singers and musicians as role models, where these artists and musicians in different ways provide strength to the individual girl/woman. The authors regard this mediatised discourse as problematic but it is juxtaposed against the individual narratives where role models are regarded as very important. Questions concerning authenticity, politics and identification are vital themes in our analysis of these narratives. Popular music is, in some respects, described as an arena dominated by white men. Furthermore the research and public discussion about “strong women” and role models take part in reproducing the hierarchies of popular music genres. These hierarchies are understood by the authors as representing asymmetrical power relations of gender, ethnicity/race and class.

    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the relationship between gender equality politics and the advancement of neo-liberalism in Sweden from the 1980s–90s. As theoretical starting point serves a discussion by Nancy Fraser, concerning the relationship between feminism and neo-liberalism, and her fears that capitalism has co-opted the feminist agenda, in fact putting feminism in the service of market-liberalism. From many perspectives, it is evident that Swedish society, like so many in the Western world, has been subjected to the forces of market logic, imbuing the politics from conservatism to social-democracy alike. To what extent has this development affected feminism on the one hand, and gender equality politics on the other? Do we detect a new kind of liberal feminism? A neo-liberal feminism? The article makes use of empirical evidence concerning the current politics on behalf of the Liberal-Conservative Swedish Government to promote female entrepreneurship. Three political areas with relevance for both gender equality and the issue of female entrepreneurship are investigated: the future of the public welfare sector, the issue of tax-deduction for household services, and, finally, gender quotas and women on company boards. While promoting a politics where the market is increasingly substituted for the public welfare-sector, and offered as a solution in most political areas, the Liberal-Conservatives of today have nevertheless embraced a feminist rhetoric. Acknowledging the forces of ‘the gender powerorder’ and structural inequality is now a standard feature within liberal gender equality politics. This political merger between feminism and neo-liberal politics may be interpreted as just paying lip-service; as a way of reconciling a long tradition of consensus surrounding gender equality with the overall neo-liberal aim of transforming the entire society along market principles. But, we may also see a neo-liberal feminism in its own right, intent on expanding the field of gender equality to enterprise, ownership and economic power.
