Abstract [sv]

Boken är en etnografisk skildring av en grupp unga chilenare i Norrköping. Influerade av hiphop och reggae skapar de en gatukultur baserad på droger och kriminalitet. Gatan blir en arena där de unga männen kan vinna respekt och erkännande. Utifrån ett starkt upplevt utanförskap går de i slutet av 1990-talet in i en heroinmarknad. Med heroinpengar känner de makt, men samtidigt exponeras de för droger och utvecklar i flera fall ett intensivt heroinmissbruk.

Boken tar sin utgångspunkt i barndomsminnen från 1980-talet, och rör sig sedan genom skol- och tonårstid fram till nutid - en tid då de flesta vill lämna drogerna och många vänder sig till välfärdssamhällets aktörer. De processer som skapar marginalisering handlar om ålder, klass, kön och etnicitet i ett komplicerat sammanspel och om hur utsatta individer går samman för att skapa mening, trygghet och känslan av att betyda något.

Boken är dokumentärt beskrivande med en stark etnografisk närvarokänsla, men innehåller också sociologisk och socialpsykologisk analys inspirerad av bland annat William F. Whyte, Howard S. Becker och Philippe Bourgois.

Abstract [en]

This article analyses the role of ethnicity in a heroin dealer and consumer network of young men of Chilean descent in Norrköping, Sweden. At the end of the 1990s the young men became involved in the network through contact with a with a large scale dealer who was also of Chilean descent. They worked as street dealers for the top dealer; many of them also began using heroin and eventually developed an addiction. Through over 100 qualitative interviews with 17 of these young men, the article examines identity construction and the competencies they developed on the street that facilitated their eventual work as dealers, as well as the social relations and contacts within the dealer network that played a role in their becoming dealers and users. The findings reveal that due to their perceived experience of being subordinated in society, they became involved in heroin as a means of gaining self respect, dignity and wealth. Departing with a view on ethnicity as something that is constructed rather than fixed and intrinsic, the findings point to how ethnicity, through the young men’s development of and participation in the street culture, merges with aspects of identity including social class and gender, as well as with aspects of ethnicities from other parts of the world. On the whole, the findings suggest that ethnicity as a concept of analysis within drug cultures is less fruitful when separated from other aspects of identity such as social class and gender.

Abstract [en]

The article discusses both Lalander´s own experiences, as well as others', of doing ethnographic studies among people with a different social and ethnical position/background than that of the researcher. The arguments are mainly drawn from a study of young men, commonly classified as second generation immigrants, with a Chilean background living in a low status area in the middle sized Swedish town Norrköping. The researcher aimed at studying how these people with aid of selected images from street culture in Chile, from music styles and films, constructed a masculine street culture involving illicit drug use and criminality. Thus, the article deals with minority issues in a multi-faceted way. The informants represent a minority in the Swedish society because of their immigrant status, but due to their criminal activity they are also a minority in relation to their ethnic group. Between 2002 and now Lalander has developed relationships in this group and thereby also an understanding of processes of identity and culture, such as how they use and construct ethnicity in order to create both personal and social identity. For them being a Chilean referred to positive values about warmness and social openness, while being a Swede referred to negative values such as coldness and hostility towards strangers. As they were participating in criminal activities they were also quite suspicious towards strangers. A Swedish researcher in his late thirties working for the state could have been seen as a representative for the authorities with the task of controlling the informants. But how did those stereotypes work when they met a researcher with a clear membership in the majority group in society? When were issues of ethnicity involved and when were they not, with regard to the relationship between the researcher and the young men? Could it have been an advantage that the researcher was from another ethnic background than their own with regard to access? Lalander argues for a research in which the social interaction under specific circumstances creates social bonds related to feelings of respectability which sometimes exceeds existing stereotypes, both for the persons under study and the researcher. The personal and concrete relationship exceeds the abstract relation between a researcher from the ethnic majority and outsiders from a minority group into something more complex and nuanced.

Abstract [sv]

Media often contribute to segregation by constructing low status residential areas as “different” from what is “normal” and “Swedish”. Research into media representations of these residential areas often focuses big city contexts. Furthermore, research tends to be preoccupied with the construction of ethnic differences, paying little attention to the relationship between construction processes of gender and ethnicity. This article is a critical analysis of how the local daily newspapers in a medium sized town, Kalmar, construct stereotypes of immigrants and gendered identities in the low status residential area Norrliden. Two newspapers were investigated in search for articles related to the area, published during the year 2005. Despite the newspapers’ claim that they want to contribute to a more nuanced and less stereotyped image of the residential area the consequences of their work seem to be the opposite. The representations of the area are coded with stereotypes suggesting that the area is unsafe and dangerous and that the people who live there are motivated by affect and emotions rather than by successful socialisation. These representations are also characterised by notions of ethnicity and gender, as well as class. Norrliden is described as an area in need of change and improvement, as an unfinished project dependent upon aid from the outside. A reading of the 2005 media representations of Norrliden exposes an example of “symbolic violence” in that texts and photographs repeatedly degrade the area and its inhabitants.
