Abstract [sv]

Visuell kommunikation, bilder och bildspråk omger oss överallt i samhället och påverkar vår vardag på många olika sätt. Det innehåll som förmedlas i bilder har ibland ett eget språk, ett visuellt maktspråk (Wikberg Nilsson & Eriksson, 2022). Vi människor tycks ha blivit vana att oreflekterat absorbera bildinnehåll med ett bildspråk av kvinnor och män framställda som varandras motsatser. I detta bildspråk representeras kvinnor exempelvis ofta som söta, känslomässiga, mjuka, passiva och underordnade, medan män framställs som hårda, aktiva, kapabla experter med kontroll (Eriksson & Götlund, 2004). Bildspråket kan därmed beskrivas som en aktiv del i upprätthållandet av en dikotomi mellan kvinnor och män (Hirdman, 2001). Fokus i denna text är det oreflekterade och ofta implicita språket i visuell design, det som vi i denna text beskriver som visuella viskningar. Med utgångspunkt i genusteorier om män och maskulinitet (Connell, 1987), genusperformativitet (Butler, 2011) och könad visuell design (Eriksson & Götlund, 2004; Wikberg Nilsson & Eriksson, 2022) är det övergripande målet att utforska konsekvenserna av normer och makt i visuellt bildspråk och vilken påverkan den kan ha för jämlikhet i samhället i stort. Genom att studera olika yrken, branscher och områden ur ett socialsemiotiskt perspektiv (van Leeuwen & Jewitt, 2001) kan de könade visuella viskningarna synliggöras i form av hur de gestaltas och bidrar till att forma olika slags normer och makt i vårt samhälle. Exempel på detta är designvärlden och de som designar de visuella bildspråket runt omkring oss är en starkt mansdominerad bransch (Reimer, 2016), Det innebär att merparten av de som behöver ändra arbetssätt är män, om vi i närtid ska uppleva en förändring i den visuella designen och dess visuella kraftspråk då inte bara ojämn representation påverkar branschen utan även innehållet i den visuella designens gestaltning. Genom att tillämpa en konstnärligt utforskande designforskningsprocess, är syftet med detta bidrag att öka kunskapen om genus i design.

Abstract [en]

This paper argues for recognition of the constitutive role of context in shaping the dynamics of the policy‐practice interface in the field of gender equality in universities. Using a comparative and reflective case‐study approach, we draw on our experiences, as action‐researchers, of developing and implementing Gender Equality Action Plans (GEAPs) in four universities in four different European countries and we explore the role of national and local context in the mediation and translation of the GEAP model. Drawing on the concepts of gendered organisations, dialogic organisational change and policy mobilities, we argue for the need to be critical of approaches to gender equality in higher education (HE) that presume policy measures and good practice models transfer unproblematically to different HE organisations in different international contexts; instead, we draw attention to the contingent ways in which uneven gender relations articulate and manifest in different contexts, shaping possibilities for, and obstacles to, gender equality intervention. Thus, we argue that context plays a crucial constitutive role in the interpretation, enactment and impact of gender equality policy in HE.

Abstract [en]

The NomaTrack design combines the LoRa‐DTN protocol with a set of unique equipment units. The equipment set consists of the units base station, reindeer GPS collar, and portable node. Drones are utilized to create line‐of‐sight. With this set reindeer positions are tracked. Real life on‐site tests integrated in herding operations were essential. They involved Jåhkågaska, Sirges, Tuorpon and Udtja Sámi Villages in Norrbotten, Sweden. In the concluding tests November‐December 2020 the deployed network extended reindeer tracking beyond regular infrastructure and connectivity with approximately 300 units. The system remains in use after the project ended. From mid‐November totally 5000 or up to more than 6000 bundles were delivered daily. Into January the number of active nodes in the LoRA‐DTN has been about 145 to 180 per day. The NomaTrack connectivity concept offers an opportunity for messaging. During the project here reported, the design of such a service was drafted. Development ofthe messaging function will commence during 2021.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: There is growing attention towards inclusive mining to make an economic case for gender equality and diversity in the industry. Available literature lacks sufficient empirical evidence on the subject matter in Ghana. Therefore, this paper aims to understudy women miners in Ghana and document their role in recent change regimes in mine works gender profiles. An observed change that is stimulating a shift in background dispositions leads to increasing number of women taking up mine jobs. Design/methodology/approach: In working towards achieving the aim of the study, both qualitative design and a multiple case study approaches are deployed. Four multinational Ghanaian mines and a mining and technology university were used to understudy the women miners and their role towards a change in mine work gender perspectives. Findings: The results showed a regime of “ore-solidarity movement” (women in mining – Ghana). A kind of solidarity identified conventionally as a social movement in active resource and self-mobilization, engaged in a symbolic contestation for change of the status quo (dominant masculinity cultures) in furtherance of gender equity and inclusion in milieu of mine works reforms in Ghana. Originality/value: The study is of high scientific, political and public interest to better understand women’s movements in the mining industries in Ghana and to frame them theoretically. It offers solid empirical evidence on roles women miners play to ensure gender shape-shifting and liberalizing the mining space for women’s participation. This move towards inclusive mining implies poverty eradication among women, work towards achieving sustainable mining, competitiveness and assurance for gender-driven social innovative mining. © 2020, Emerald Publishing Limited.

Abstract [en]

As can be expected from a field termed Industrial Ecology its’ focus is on the exchanges commonly understood as constituents of industry or, put in other words, of production. This evokes the classical gender studies observation, regarding epistemological effects in science, from the cultural construction of male and female spheres. Ultimately, IE refers to the human interaction with the planet. Can a sufficient degree of validity be retained if the system boundaries, are positioned so that they set “production” apart from “reproduction”? What might take place in culturally “feminine” zones that is integral to the activities of an industrial system? With Evelyn Fox Keller one might ask, if the tables should be turned: Under what circumstances can analytical boundaries be applied that, separate production from reproduction and public from private? The chapter reviews IE and gender studies scholarly writing through examples that demonstrate topics, themes and concerns in the respective fields.

Abstract [sv]

Här presenterar vi ramverket för RIKARE affärsmodeller. Ramverket som tagits fram inom ramen Gender Smart Arena vid Luleå tekniska universitet syftar till att bidra till företags och organisationer förändringsarbete mot inkluderande affärs- och verksamhetsmodeller. Ramverket utgör ett delmoment, ett komplement till det digitala verktyget ”Richer business models” (richerbusiness.eu). En affärsmodell är den plan enligt vilken ett företag sköter sin affärsverksamhet. Medvetenhet och reflekterande förståelse kring vad som skapar värde i företag möjliggör förändring. I detta ramverk bidrar vi med övningar och utmaningar som tar ert företag eller organisation till nästa steg i ert förändringsarbete. Företag och organisationer drivs av människor och det är också människor som skapar värde och åstadkommer förändring. I ramverket rikare affärsmodeller fångas affärsmodellens förändringsarbete utifrån flera dimensioner; från olika ”platser” (fysiskt, digital, socialt), situationer, roller och agerande, dvs det som sker och inte sker i företaget eller organisationen.

Genom ramverket RIKARE affärsmodeller kan företag och organisationer ta ytterligare steg mot förbättrad konkurrenskraft och ansvarstagande för att skapa nya värden. Ta på dig de inkluderande glasögonen och bege dig ut i världen – var normkritisk och normkreativ – var aldrig rädd att förändr

Abstract [en]

Diffraction,as conventionally defined, is a term for one among a number of wave phenomena.Since the 1990's, when it was introduced by Donna Haraway, it is also a concept within feminist methodology. While particularly the cyborg figure – the cybernetic organism – already in its mainstream scientific-technological scope involves both fantasy and innovation, the term diffraction is in its conventional meaning descriptive. This paper investigates the broad strokes of how the novel diffraction concept is taken in use. Fifty-one papers published in peer-reviewed journals from 2001 to June 2016. The results indicate that the opposition to traditional contemplation- i.e. reflection that Haraway sets as target when introducing the novel concept is the point around which the dynamics evolve.That far, the novel concept could be just any metaphor, like describing thinking things through as ‘reflecting’. Several authors however claim an interdisciplinary connotation, especially to physics. In the material investigated, every implementation and elaboration does not abide to the letter to each attribute in Haraway’s concept. The discovery of how dominant it nevertheless has become to do just that is an important result of this study. Haraway’s sketch of a mirror and a diffraction laboratory experiment is dealt with as was it a full description of wave theory, a complete representation that perfectly meshes with nature.  In a fair share of the material, Haraway’s invention of putting diffraction and reflection as metaphors for thinking in hierarchical opposition is literarily interpreted into physics.
