    Att utveckla handlingskraft: om flickors identitetsskapande processer2007Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is about organized riding as an arena for girls' leisure activity, in which they create a specific identity. My aim was to interpret and analyze the way girls create meaning out of the social and cultural context of the riding school. Particular focus is put on how gender is constructed through activities and actions within the discourses revealed through language, rules and symbols. My questions of research are: What does the cultural practice in the stable look like? What dimensions are important for the girls' identity creation? How do the girls position themselves through action, language and symbols? Which gender positions are available? Which positions are valued and not valued within the stable? How do their positions in the stable differ from what they see as their positions at school?Theoretically I rely on a social constructive perspective and with my interest focused on which ideal, norms and values the girls have to relate to. For my analyzes I use theoretical writings by Foucault, Butler and Skeggs, specially their constructs about power, meaning and materiality. The structure of the stable imposes power on the girls through its discourses. The girls, on the other hand, exert power on the horses and other young people in the stable through their competence and position. Within the space, which emerges and develops through the social interaction the girls together create meaning of their lives in the stable. Materiality is shown through their execution of personal competence, which they gain through the responsibility and leadership over the horse.My empirical data partly consists of personal life stories from the 1950´s up to now told by women at different ages, who had spent considerable time in the stable. I have, also, made observations of and talked to a group of girls, spending their leisure time in a local stable taking care of the horses and riding. A year later I made follow up interviews with the same girls.The data analyzes resulted in three major themes: Meeting the horse, Meeting with the culture and Meeting with people in the stable. Different dimension emerged within these themes important for my understanding of how the girls positioned themselves in the stable. The girls' interaction with the horse is what makes riding different from other leisure activities. Since the horse is not safe to handle the girls need to be determined, distinct and ready to take action. Through this they create a self image of courage, action and determination. The legitimacy of the culture is shaped by the discourses: Responsibility and Work, Care giving and Military discipline. Through these the girls learn that the milieu with horses means hard work and severe challenges, which they are expected to manage. In return they are seen and look upon themselves as industrious and responsible persons. The theme Meeting people focuses on the social encounters, which occur in the riding school. Being with their friends in the stable is central. Homo-social friendship is more important than heterosexual play. The girls consider themselves different from other girls outside the stable. They called themselves "not abashed" as they did not care about appearance. They had the opportunity to handle gender expectations of the society in a different way. My conclusion is that girls in the stable have a place where they can create a gender identity, which is wider than the traditional norms about how girls should behave and look. In this place their drive to take action and be in the lead gets a meaning, they are heroes in a non compromise world.

    How to promote collaboration between course members?2004Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Collaboration between members is a crucial matter for challenging learning and assessment of net based courses. We use Fronter as a conference system for a course in leisure studies at A-level. In this every participant has an own page not accessible for the rest of the group. If a member wants to raise anything of interest for the whole group s/h/e addresses this on a joint page. The participants should in an easy way be able to invite others into a more private chat, "home-room", as a way to get to know each other on an emotional level, not necessarily connected to the content of the course. When meeting students live we often spend time for the participants go get to know each other on a personal level, which enables peer collaboration and assessment. In a distance course, in which the participants as best see each other in a camera, it is difficult to create this atmosphere of trust and friendship. As a result there is little communication between the participants. In this session we would like to get to know about what other systems can offer and exchange experiences about how to enhance friendship and cooperation among the participants.

    Manegen är krattad: Om flickors och kvinnors företagsamhet i hästrelaterade verksamheter2012Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här avhandlingen handlar om betydelsen av företagsamhet och ledarskap med utgångspunkt från stallmiljö. Syftet är att undersöka stallet som en möjlig ledarskap- och entreprenörsskola och även undersöka hur stallmiljön kan utmana könsstereotyper i relation till ledarskap och entreprenörskap. Det ger samtidigt en ökad kunskap om företagsamhet och företagande inom svensk hästverksamhet. Med utgångspunkt i stallet och hästrelaterad verksamhet är studiens forskningsfrågor: Hur "görs" ledarskap och entreprenörskap? På vilket sätt uttrycker de sina handlingar i förhållande till stereotyper om kvinnor och män? Hur "görs" kön i relation till ledarskap och entreprenörskap? Vilken roll har strukturer? Mina teoretiska verktyg vilar på betydelser av entreprenörskap som en process som är relationell och social. Genom mitt intresse i att tolka och analysera hur entreprenöriella processer skapar sociala förändringar, bidrar den här forskningen till forskningsområdet ”entreprenörskap som social förändring”. Metateoretiskt har jag ett socialkonstruktionistiskt perspektiv där jag intresserat mig för vilka ideal, normer och värderingar flickorna och kvinnorna har att förhålla sig till och hur de skapar och orienterar sig själva. Till min analys har jag använt genusteori och diskursiva perspektiv. I avhandlingen finns en grundidé att stallet erbjuder en diskursiv praktik som påverkar flickor som ung i deras identitetsprocess. Samtidigt får flickorna utöva makt och inflytande över hästar och andra ungdomar i stallet genom sin kompetens och position. Den materialiserade effekten i deras identitetsprocess visas genom deras uppfattning om personlig kompetens hos dem själva. Dessa processer studeras i den här avhandlingen i andra miljöer. Speciellt fokus ligger på processen som entreprenörer i hästverksamhet.Det empiriska materialet består av flera kompletterande delstudier: 1) Sex livsberättelser från vuxna kvinnor som hade tillbringat mycket tid i stallet, där berättelsen fokuserade på ungdomstiden; 2) en etnografisk inspirerad studie där jag följde en grupp flickor (6 st) som tillbringade en stor del av sin fritid i stallet.3) uppföljande intervjuer med samma flickor ett år och fyra år senare, där den senare uppföljningen hade fokus både på beskrivningar från deras historier i stallet och i situationer utanför stallet; 4) kartläggning av företag och företagsledare i hästrelaterade företag i Sverige, 5) enkätundersökning till ett urval av de kartlagda företagarna; 6) 13 nutida huvudsakligen populärvetenskapliga texter om företagande i branschen; samt 7) intervjuer med åtta entreprenörer (utvalda bland de som besvarat enkäten) för att kunna undersöka deras upplevelser av att vara företagare i hästbranschen och huruvida stallet påverkat deras företagande.Den sammantagna diskussionen resulterade i tre teman; företagsamhet, ledarskap och företagande. Under dessa teman visade jag hur ledarskap och entreprenörskap ”görs” i hästrelaterade verksamheter och diskuterar vidare hur deras agerande och uppfattningar utmanar könsstereotypa föreställningar om kvinnor och män. Samtidigt tolkade jag hur kön ”görs och betydelser strukturer. Resultatet visar hur de i stallmiljö tagit del av en kulturell praktik som domineras av kvinnor som utför både könskodade kvinnliga och manliga sysslor, som får betydelse för deras upplevelse som driftig och kompetent. Hästens utmanande karaktär tvingar in dem att inta en subjektsposition där de utövar ett ledarskap som upplevs genom sitt utövande som en naturlig färdighet. Genom sina erfarenheter känner de sig rustad att inte stå emot utanförkulturens krav på förväntningar av kön och kan hitta en kollektiv ”annorlundahet” som tar avstånd från yta och traditionell femininet. De premierar handlingskraft och mod. Det empiriska materialet visar därigenom att det är möjligt att både vara entreprenöriell och ledare fast på flickors och kvinnors vis utan att låta sig fixeras. Ett dilemma är att även om de själva skapar sig ett handlingsutrymme så kan detta hindra dem att se gemensamma hinder som inbegriper kvinnor i allmänhet. Trots att de agerar annorlunda, kan de inte helt frigöra sig från att de starka strukturer som utgör hinder för kvinnors möjligheter till avancemang. Det kan dessutom i sin ihärdighet få orimliga krav på sig och lägga för stor vikt vid sitt eget ansvar när de inte ser gemensamma strukturer. Ändå är deras driv och genusutrymme ett exempel på ett förminskande av de rådande normerna, och att deras kraft visar på en potential att förändra ett samhälle. För att det ska ge genomslag i samhällelig mening behövs en kritisk massa där den här avhandlingen kan representera ett exempel på en genusexperimentell miljö som resulterat i entreprenöriella handlingar.

    The riding school as a site for gender identity construction among Swedish teenage girls2011In: World Leisure Journal, ISSN 0441-9057, E-ISSN 1607-8055, Vol. 53, no 1, p. 42-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on observations and interviews with six teenage girls (age 14–16) currently highly active in a Swedish riding school. Riding is one of the most popular sporting activities among girls in Sweden and riding schools receive financial support from the government to make riding available to everyone. The aim of this paper is to explore how teenage girls construct their gender identity at the stable through the handling of horses and related work in their leisure time. Theoretically, we employ Butler's (1999) theory of identity, based on social constructivism. The relationships with the horses, the hard work, the unexpected challenges, as well as the friendships among the girls, were found to be essential elements of the stable experience. At the stable, the girls learned to take action, handle risks and take the lead. This created an alternative way of enacting themselves as young females, resulting in an identity based on being independent, competent and powerful. As such, the riding school represents a developmental space where teenage girls can prepare themselves for their future, independent, lives.

    Which identity do girls create in the stable?2006In: Bowling together: seven articles from the Malmö conference, Malmö: Textbyrån MLT AB , 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is one of the most horse populated countries in Europe with a general riding activity which is unique in the world. 220 000 individuals are related to the riding schools in Sweden and 85 percent are women. Half of these are younger than twenty-five. Riding is a traditional sport for girls and a sport that through time has picked up ideals like responsibility, bringing up and democracy. Riding as an activity takes time not just for the riding itself but also to the care of the horse. The times of youth at the leisure arenas are important for the identity development among the youth.At the same time the creation of identity in the late modern society has got a more open character that is tested constantly. It also makes it possible with several identities and is a part of an individualization process where looks and body are more important.The purpose of this article is to investigate how the youth in the stable are influenced by what we call the late modern age.This is investigated through a minor ethnographic study where a number of visitors at the stable are observed in their leisure time.

    Gender and entrepreneurship in the horse-related industry2013In: Journal of Business Diversity, ISSN 2158-3889, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 75-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we examine the horse-related industry in terms of entrepreneurship and gender. Based on reports of the industry, a mapping of the entire sector (N= 7504) and a questionnaire (N=520) we find that the industry is portrayed as female gendered, but dominated by men. However, we also find evidence that the industry is changing gender, as women dominate among younger entrepreneurs. The strongest motives for the horse-related entrepreneurs (regardless of gender) are realizing a dream and being able to combine interest with work. We also found that entrepreneurs in this industry mainly network inside the industry.

    Gender dimensions in women’s networking for social innovation2016In: Innovation. The European Journal of Social Sciences, ISSN 1351-1610, E-ISSN 1469-8412, Vol. 29, no 4, p. 408-421Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Even if the number of research studies on social innovation has increased the last years, due to its perceived potential to address complex societal challenges, there still remains several relevant aspects to be explored, such as the impact of gendered norms and patterns on the transition from social inclusion to social exclusion strived for in social innovation processes. In order to further expand the dawning scientific field of social innovation, this article presents a case study of a Swedish network promoting women’s employment, entrepreneurship and innovation, exploring the complex and multiple gender aspects of social innovation. The potentials and delimitations of the network to address gender on various levels of social innovation is scrutinised by means of previous research on social and gender dimensions of innovation and organisational/societal change, exposing that further development of social innovation as a scientific field requires a comprehensive approach to the identification and analysis of the gendered norms, subordination and empowerment that affect the aspired transition from social exclusion to social inclusion in social innovation processes.

    Gendered social innovation: A theoretical lens for analysing structural transformation in organisations and society2015In: International Journal of Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation, ISSN 2043-8257, E-ISSN 2043-8265, Vol. 3, no 6, p. 472-483Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the light of the narrow focus in Western innovation policies andtheories – mainly prioritising men-dominated and symbolically masculinespheres – the need for increased inclusiveness in innovation regarding socialaspects such as gender has been stressed. In order to expand the existing bodyof knowledge on innovation and to inform the design of more inclusiveinnovation policies, this article elaborates ‘gendered social innovation’ as atheoretical lens for scientific analysis of innovative transformation of genderedstructures in organisations and society. This is attained by a conceptual study,merging key elements from three sub-fields of innovation studies: inclusiveinnovation, social innovation and gendered innovation. The proposedelaboration of gendered social innovation encompasses the identification ofunsolved societal challenges of gender inequality and unmet needs amongwomen or men as underrepresented or disadvantaged groups in various areas,motivating the development of new solutions by inclusive innovationprocesses.
