Abstract [en]

Historic ethnological research has shown how forestry in the first half of 20th century has functioned as a modernizing force in the northern parts of rural Sweden by providing forestry workers an opportunity to earn money and gain status independent of their social position in relation to owning land. However, despite ongoing professionalization and introduction of science and advanced technology in forestry operations and management, the industry is nowadays mostly seen as backward and out-dated, particularly in relation to issues of gender. Based on the empirical material from two different R&D projects focusing on gender equality in forestry, this paper discusses this shift from “modern” to “backwards” and the heavily male dominated forestry industry’s ambition to once again become that modernizing force in rural areas of Sweden. Issues of gender equality and the ability to attract more women are understood as key in this ambition to be recognized as “modern” business as well as a vital part in the forestry industries in the transformation towards bio economy.
