    Post-Soviet Racisms2017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is novel not only in its theoretical framework, which places racialisation in post-communist societies and their modernist political projects at the centre of processes of global racism, but also in being the first account to examine both these new national contexts and the interconnections between racisms in these four regions of the Baltic states, the Southern Caucasus, Central Asia and Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine, and elsewhere. Assessments of the significance of the contemporary geopolitical contexts of armed conflict, economic transformation and political transition for racial discourse are central themes, and the book highlights the creative, innovative and persistent power of contemporary forms of racial governance which has central significance for understanding contemporary societies.

    “Us gamers want exactly what we have always wanted”: den avpolitiserade spelaren och dess ideologiska andra2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the sharp criticism directed at video games that embrace different types of what I call progressive elements, primarily those that include diversity, representation, or deviate from traditional video gaming mechanics and norms. The study is a discourse analysis of YouTube videos, where the starting point has been how the arguments construct a problem in relation to these progressive elements, with specific causes and solutions. By deconstructing these statements and then reconstructing a chain of equivalence, i.e. relations between subject positions, this shows how a binary logic carries the discourse where a specific ‘we’, The Gamer, are up against a specific ‘them’, the Social Justice Warriors (SJWs). By ways of binary discursive exclusions, the groups are constructed as opposites. In the discourse, The Gamer becomes depoliticized by relating it to concepts of rationality, game culture and the free market, whilst SJWs are associated with censorship, ideology, and non-games. In this way, The Gamer makes invisible its association with masculinity and an often pseudo-meritocratic and Social Darwinist ideology, and claims an interpretative prerogative and oppose any kind of change, on basis of truth and facts.

    Educational expansion and inequalities in mortality - A fixed-effects analysis using longitudinal data from 18 European populations2017In: PLoS ONE, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 12, no 8, article id e0182526Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this paper is to empirically evaluate whether widening educational inequalities in mortality are related to the substantive shifts that have occurred in the educational distribution.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data on education and mortality from 18 European populations across several decades were collected and harmonized as part of the Demetriq project. Using a fixed-effects approach to account for time trends and national variation in mortality, we formally test whether the magnitude of relative inequalities in mortality by education is associated with the gender and age-group specific proportion of high and low educated respectively.

    RESULTS: The results suggest that in populations with larger proportions of high educated and smaller proportions of low educated, the excess mortality among intermediate and low educated is larger, all other things being equal.

    CONCLUSION: We conclude that the widening educational inequalities in mortality being observed in recent decades may in part be attributed to educational expansion.

    Hur organiseras det oförutsägbara?: En kvalitativ studie om att hantera det plötsliga i jourverksamheter2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A society handle on one hand uncertain, unpredictable and incalculable events and on the other hand planned, calculated and predictable occasions. In this essay, I will investigate how these events and situations that we do not know anything about are socially organized. Sweden, among other developed countries worldwide, may be an interesting field of a new upcoming discourse of security and safety. New agencies in the form of alarm centres with on-call and on-site services are popping up more often these days. Two of those agencies are analysed in this essay. Earlier research on this theme handle phenomenon such as rationality, crisis, chaos and catastrophes. Also, phenomenological sense-making studies of organizations working with these kinds of events have been gone through.

    The sociological theoretical framework of system and lifeworld, developed by Jürgen Habermas in his work of Theories of Communicative Action1 is the theoretical outset in this study. With mentioned organizations, at somewhat different domains, I have used the qualitative methodologies of semi-structural interviews and participant observations. Interpersonal verbal communication is here problematized together with technological and digital forms of communication. The result gave that some forms of systematic organized processes, but also reflexive and intuitive forms of action can explain the dichotomy of system and lifeworld in the structural middle level (meso) for investigated organizations.
