    Making allies or others?: Intersectional challenges during courtroom observations2015In: Concurrences in Postcolonial Research : Perspectives, Methodologies, Engagements: Linnaeus University, Kalmar, Sweden, August 20-23, 2015, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with methodological challenges presented while carrying out observations during an ethnographically inspired research project into notions and ideas about culture, ethnicity, gender and age within a Swedish courtroom context. Approximately 20 court cases on “street related crime” and “domestic violence” have been studied by means of observations in court, interviews with defendants and readings of court documents. Two analytical courses of action have emerged while applying postcolonial perspectives on preliminary findings; one being to address the court as an arena for multiple, concurring and conflicting voices and the other as a discursive arena for epistemological colonialism, or as contemporary, inherited expression of a Nordic (discursive) colonialism.  

    However, the intersectional approach of trying to account for several concurrent voices proposes some interesting methodological challenges, which is the focus of this paper. One such challenge is related to scope and range of social categories present in the court context, placing great demands on the researcher’s ability to “keep track” of multiple perspectives/voices simultaneously. The paper will address this issue by exploring questions concerned with the amount of time and material needed to reach empirical saturation, as well as potential methods facilitating the acknowledgement and observation of a multi-perspective presence. Another challenge when doing research in a setting characterized by diversity related to the (un)awareness of the researcher’s situated knowledge and position(s) within specific discursive homes. The paper will discuss methodological possibilities as well as difficulties when it comes to accounting for the agency of people found to be othered in courtroom discourse and interaction. The importance of interviews to verify or contest researcher findings will be addressed, in addition to the importance of empathy and dangers of “othering” when approaching a diverse setting.

    Othering the “other” in court: Threats to self-presentation during interpreter assisted hearings2014In: International Journal of Law, Language & Discourse, ISSN 1839-8308, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 27-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on an ethnographic research project studying interaction processes and rituals; the interplay between speech and social interaction during interpreted hearings in Swedish District Court cases on domestic violence, where opponents have Middle Eastern, Muslim backgrounds. It is argued that a combination of linguistic changes performed by an interpreter – subtractions, additions and content alterations – during interpreted hearings can cause situations of emotional drainage and contagion, leading to further ”othering” of parties that already are culturally and linguistically ”othered”, both inside and outside the courtroom context. Ultimately, their loss of control over self-presentation is a matter of unequal power distribution and a potential threat to the principle of legal security. Thus, the view of the interpreter as merely a context-bound supportive drummer at the back of the orchestra is challenged and related to social order and stratification processes on an abstract societal level.

    Risk Creation in Traveling - Backpacker adventure narration2001In: Annals of Tourism Research, ISSN 0160-7383, E-ISSN 1873-7722, Vol. 28, no 3, p. 597-617Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses, through examples from in-depth interviews with long-term budget travelers, how culturally and socially constructed narratives about risk and adventure are manifested hv individuals in backpacker communities. Such manifestation is carried out through consumption of, for instance, experiences, plates, food, medicine, and clothing. It is argued that tales and acts of "risk and adventure" work particularly well in individuals' efforts to "narrate identity". The paper also addresses a need for more gender sensitive research, through suggesting that adventurous women mar be caught in an intersection between two logical systems. the reflexive life project of "late modernity" open to both genders and the adventure as a historically rounded masculine practice.

    Time creation in travelling: The taking and making of time among women backpackers1998In: Time & Society, ISSN 0961-463X, E-ISSN 1461-7463, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 309-334Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with long-term budget travelling from different time perspectives. Narratives of travel, given by women backpackers and interpreted through 'time lenses', lead to an analysis of the journey as an individualized time-space in which the traveller regains control of her own time and movement. It is argued that this control, sensed as 'freedom', opens up both mind and body to a complexity of different time experiences. These vary depending on context and speed of movement. Thus, the long-term journey into different and diversified cultures is discussed as a move away from clock-time and other structuring devices into a space and time where the traveller is, to a certain extent, left alone to do her own structuring. The backpacker is both living and creating her own time.

    Immigrant mafia or local lads on the binge?: The construction of (un)trustworthiness in Swedish district courts2017In: Retfærd. Nordisk Juridisk Tidsskrift, ISSN 0105-1121, Vol. 157, no 3-4, p. 182-200Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we address the constructionof familiarity and distance in Swedish district courtcases, involving young men with both immigrantand Swedish backgrounds. Through ethnographicobservations of 40 trials related to street crimes, wehave found different qualities of social interaction that distinguish immigrant background and Swed-ish background cases from each other. These distinc-tions, disfavouring young men with immigrant back-ground, are built up through a series of practices and events that follow taken-for-granted behaviourand details in interaction, such as speech, laughter,choice of words to describe the accused and trust inSwedish witnesses. In conclusion, we argue for thenecessity of detailed, close-up studies of courtroom action and interaction to understand statistical find-ings of discrimination and disfavouring of certain groups of immigrants in court and elsewhere in thejudicial process.

    Projekt Norrliden.: Om småstadspressens etnifiering och genderisering av en förort2007In: Sociologisk forskning, no 2, p. 6-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Internet racism, journalism and the principle of public access: Ethical challenges for qualitative research into ‘media attractive’ court cases2016In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, ISSN 0141-9870, E-ISSN 1466-4356, Vol. 39, no 11, p. 1943-1961Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the risk of research exposing people with an immigrant background in criminal court cases to Internet-based racist persecution, due to mismanagement of general ethical guidelines. The principle of informed consent, ideally serving to protect people under study from harm may, in fact, cause them more harm due to the interest among certain Internet-based networks of spreading identifiable, degrading information. Arguments are based on ethically challenging experiences from two ethnographic research projects carried out in Swedish district court environments, focused on immigrant court cases. Ethical advice provided by ethical review boards and established research guidelines, were based on an unawareness of the potentially destructive rendezvous in media attractive immigrant court cases between ‘ethically informed’ research, crime journalism, freedom of information legislation and ‘Internet vigilantes’ on a quest to persecute court participants and their families in the global digital arena.

    Noise, voice and silencing during immigrant court-case performances in Swedish district courts2017In: Ethnicities, ISSN 1468-7968, E-ISSN 1741-2706, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 667-687Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that court-ritual unawareness, linguistic shortcomings andstereotypical images about non-Swedish otherness impair the position and actingspace for immigrants in a Swedish district court context. Drawing on two ethnographicallyinformed research projects focused on courtroom interaction during morethan 20 trials dealing with ‘domestic violence’ and ‘street-related crime’, we claimthat immigrant voices are often silenced due to taken-for-granted practices in court.Through analyses of interviews, performances, interpreted hearings and references toa desirable Swedishness, it is argued that situations are created where immigrantparticipants may experience their possibility of being understood as limited and theirvoices as being unheard. Such conditions are emotionally draining and may result inparticipants choosing silence over stating their case. This is a problem, not only withinthe individual court case, but also for the overall legitimacy of the court system and forissues of institutional trust among citizens.

    Competent interpreters and enabling working conditions in court: crucial prerequisites for a fair trial2018In: Retfærd. Nordisk Juridisk Tidsskrift, ISSN 0105-1121, no 3-4, p. 61-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The right to a fair trial is a well-knownright in a state governed by the rule of law. Thisarticle delves into the subject of problematic interpretationsand addresses the right to a competentinterpreter as part of the right to a fair trial. It derivesfrom a socio-legal research project in Swedennamed “Negotiations in court and equality beforethe law: an ethnographic approach to negotiations ofculture, gender and age during trials related to streetcrime.” Our conclusion is that entering a Swedishdistrict court today, as a non-Swedish speaker, thereis an obvious risk that you will not be able to narrateyour version of whatever brought you to courtin the first place, nor can you be sure that courtrepresentative narratives are mediated to you in asatisfactory version.

    Socialtjänstens kontakter med barn i papperslöshet: om barns rätt till trygghet och skydd2016In: Retfærd. Nordisk Juridisk Tidsskrift, ISSN 0105-1121, Vol. 39, no 3/154, p. 31-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna artikel belyses socialtjänstens ansvar för att tillhandahålla skydd och trygghet vid akuta situationer för barn i papperslöshet. Ekonomisk utsatthet och situationer när barnen misstänks fara illa undersöks och diskuteras med utgångspunkt i relevanta rättsliga bestämmelser. Resultaten, baserade på två enkätstudier, en nationell och en lokal studie, samt uppföljande intervjuer med socialsekreterare och representanter från idéburen sektor visar att skyddet för barn i papperslöshet brister vid socialtjänstens handläggning och beslutsfattande. Socialtjänsten har att verka som ett yttersta skyddsnät mot nöd vid uppkomna akutsituationer av ekonomisk karaktär, men kanske viktigare, när det finns behov av skydd för barn som utsätts för olika former av övergrepp i sin närmiljö. Barnkonventionens bestämmelser om barnets bästa och barns lika rättigheter och värde samt mera uttryckliga stadganden om rätt till social trygghet och skydd mot övergrepp omfattar alla barn, oavsett legal status. Trots det visar denna studie hur myndigheter, men även andra verksamheter, inte sällan hanterar papperslösa barn som en andra klassens människor, vilka behandlas sämre och erhåller ett lägre skydd mot missförhållanden.
