    Whose reality counts?: Critical junctures in livelihood trajectories under deforestation2017In: Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie, ISSN 0040-747X, E-ISSN 1467-9663, Vol. 108, no 5, p. 540-553Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Livelihoods approaches focus on the poor and their knowledge and agency, but risk underplaying broader contextual forces which constrain and shape that agency. Livelihood trajectories approaches attend more fully to these structural, contextual dynamics. A three-year study using quantitative and qualitative methods investigated livelihood trajectories over two decades in a village affected by deforestation in Northeast Cambodia, and sought to identify critical junctures structuring those trajectories. A timber rush, a land rush, a turn to agriculture and ongoing competition to shape post-forest reterritorialisation were identified as the critical junctures. These transformed the physical environment, and initiated waves of migration which in turn transformed the social and economic structure and everyday life of the village. This valuably disrupts narrative simplifications associated with community forestry. The junctures furthermore suggest an analytical framework for understanding deforestation-livelihoods dynamics in other contexts, thus demonstrating how livelihood trajectories research might contribute to middle-level theory building.

    Gårdstensmodellen: ett verktyg för att vända negativ utveckling i utsatta områden?2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    This study aims to find out how the process of change in the former particularly vulnerable area Gårdsten, in Gothenburg, has been perceived from a residential perspective, focusing on inclusion and safety. The suburb was, until March 2019, classified by the Swedish police as a particularly vulnerable area. The positive development that has taken place there since 1997, led by the housing company Gårdstensbostäder, seems to be unique and has been called the model of Gårdsten (Gårdstensmodellen). One of the most emphasized aspects of this model is how the housing company is said to embrace local inclusion and participation of residents in their development plans. Knowledge about how residents actually experience this model is important since the model has started to become recommended as an example for other vulnerable areas to follow. The study is based on semi structured interviews with residents of Gårdsten, which are analysed with a qualitative content analysis and compared and connected to Jürgen Habermas’ theory about deliberative democracy. The result shows that there are divided opinions about the efficiency of the resident inclusion and also questioning about the methods used by Gårdstensbostäder. However, it further shows that the residents do perceive a positive change in Gårdsten in several aspects and a majority also thinks that other vulnerable areas could learn from what Gårdsten has accomplished. This paper argues that the deliberative processes in Gårdsten can be enhanced even though it is difficult to fully implement deliberative democracy in this context.

    Do personal experiences have an impact on teaching and didactic choices in geography?2015In: European Journal of Geography, ISSN 1792-1341, Vol. 4, no 6, p. 6-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Factors influencing teachers’ selection of content in geography teaching is a fundamental didactic matter. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether Swedish geography teachers’ informal and formal experiences have influenced their interest in geography and if so, in what way. The results disclosed that informal experiences like outings, holidays, and childhood memories have a significant impact. The results also revealed that childhood experiences might increase the comprehension of how nature and mankind are connected, and how various places differ. Selective traditions showed to be strong, i.e. geographic names and map reading were prioritized while at excursions, physical geography was particularly dominating. We argue that in the geography teacher education, didactics should include methods for field studies, giving emphasis also to the part dealing with human geography. Forthcoming teachers need to reflect on how to make didactic choices in order to renounce the selective traditions in the subject.

    Unraveling the logics of landscape2014Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite conceptual oscillations through times, the concept of landscape remains highly subjective, whereupon unraveling its 'logics' opens up to a plurality of interpretations. Accordingly, by focusing on the interconnections present in the non-haphazard production of landscape, this publication elaborates on how the rural landscape is valued, monitored, changed, harbored, used and misused, be it through actions, representations or metaphors. This book covers a broad range of topics, with contributions from scholars from more than 30 countries.

    Informal livelihoods: Womens´biographies and reflections about everyday life: A time-geographic analysis in urban Colombia2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the everyday life conditions of low-income women who work mainly in the informal sector in Bogota, Colombia. The work has its point of departure in an analysis of the complex daily lives of two women over an extended time period and from the perspective of the individual. The detailed level of description and analysis will, as a hypothesis, help us to better understand how to improve development programs, allowing institutional and individual levels to meet exactly at the point that is desirable for those who are the target groups in the execution of their daily lives.

    The main aim of the study is to describe the conditions of livelihood of the two women from the perspective of the individual and to contribute to the making of institutions’ definitions of women’s needs, design and follow-up on development projects coincide better with women’s interests.

    A time-geographic methodology, based on structured time diaries describing patterns of time-use for daily activities, is explored and adapted to the local context of the study. The methodology is also complemented by reflective diaries describing the women’s perceptions of present and past experiences, hopes and plans for the future, the intentions and motives behind daily activities. Together, the diaries reveal how decisions in daily life come about in a particular physical environment with specific social and cultural characteristics.

    A time-geographic theoretical approach is applied to analyse the women’s life stories and biographies of livelihood projects. Theoretical contributions about the main areas of interest when studying women’s life courses and conditions in development studies are also referred to, for instance, women’s interests and needs, gender analysis, empowerment, livelihoods and local contexts.

    The findings of this study and the results of its methodology have demonstrated that to improve women’s opportunities for livelihood, it is necessary to understand women’s conditions in relation to women’s total life contexts. The research methodology applied here opened the way for an empowerment process with higher self- esteem and confidence as a result. This indicates that sector planning, project design, follow up and evaluations in development institutions may gain from using information about women’s multiple activities and perceptions from an individual and a gender perspective.
