    Att leva med tiden: Samhälls- och kulturanalytiska perspektiv på ålder och åldrande2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att leva med tiden handlar om vad ålder och åldrande kan betyda i olika sammanhang och hur betydelsen förändras över tid och rum. I boken diskuteras olika samhälls- och kulturvetenskapliga perspektiv på ålder och åldrande. Boken belyser vilka konsekvenser vetenskapliga sätt att se på åldrande kan få i analys av, och relation till, vardagsliv, vetenskaplig verksamhet och i det offentliga livet. Förutom historiska tillbakablickar presenteras också teorier om ålder, normalitet och identitet samt ålder ur ett intersektionellt perspektiv.

    Ethnically profiled nursing home care in Sweden – from culture to lifestyle: Äldreboenden med etnisk profil i Sverige–från kultur till livsstil2018In: European Journal of Social Work, ISSN 1369-1457, E-ISSN 1468-2664, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 235-246Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper investigates presentations of ethnically profiled nursing homes in Sweden, and in particular what categories these nursing homes target and what problems they are suggested to solve. The findings relate to the construction of older immigrants and to shifting ideas on responsibilities of the Swedish welfare state. Data consisted of 68 articles from newspapers and journals between the period of 1995 and 2015 that were analysed using qualitative methods. Guided by a social constructionist approach focusing on claims-making, two comprehensive ‘problem frames’ were identified: the language and culture frame and the choice of lifestyle frame. The main finding of the paper was that, since about 2007, descriptions of ethnically profiled nursing homes have come to be included in a broader category of profiled nursing homes such as ‘all inclusive’ and ‘hotel-concept’, within a system that focuses on choice based on special needs, lifestyle and interest. The paper concludes that, although this way of framing ethnically profiled nursing homes works against the construction of older immigrants as a problematic category, there is a risk that the emphasis on choice of lifestyle conceals or justifies inequalities based on social class.

    Are Old People Merited Veterans of Society? Some Notes on a Problematic Claim.2007In: Outlines. Critical Practice Studies, ISSN 1399-5510, E-ISSN 1904-0210, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 28-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article shows how merit has been used to highlight pensioners as a special population in the claims-making activities of the senior rights movement in Sweden, as well as in debates about issues concerning old age. Simply put, merit refers to the claim that pensioners have built the society and they are entitled to special treatment – for instance welfare, reverence – for this reason. Merit is concluded to be a rhetorical tool with the potential of countering images of older people as a burden to the young. It portrays seniors as a population worthy of welfare and reverence. Social movements that emphasize merit among seniors will however risk isolation, since such claims to some extent have become associated with populist attacks on immigrants, politicians and other groups labeled as non-merited.

    Age, Time and Identity2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Age is an organising principle for both social relations and for welfare policy. In recent years age has come to be increasingly politicized as debate over the growing number of elderly in society and how society will manage the costs of future elderly care has gained momentum. The politicization of age is not new, however. Different social movements throughout history have been shaped by and have had age as a point of departure for political mobilization. Examples of such political organisation include pensioner organisations, pensioners' political parties, and interest groups for elderly workers. Also young people have organised themselves in different political contexts on the basis of a commonality in age. A distinction between old and young has also been made within political parties whereby one has repeatedly argued for renewal and change to increase representation of younger members. The aim of this presentation is to investigate and discuss the articulation of age as a political identity by way of examples of current political organisations. In this case, our focus is primarily upon old age as a political identity

    Ageing and masculinity in the rural2011In: The Gerontologist, ISSN 0016-9013, E-ISSN 1758-5341, Vol. 51, no Suppl_2, p. 339-339Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The rural context has consequences for the ways that gender structures the lives of people throughout the life course, both materially and socially. Norms of masculinity remains strong in rural areas and there is less room for deviations than in urban areas. This is not least connected to the scarcity of meeting places, and above all to that of alternative spaces. Men in rural areas who have remained unmarried throughout their lives and live without a partner tend to live in the areas where they were born. The identity and ways of living of unmarried men is often tied to the places where they live, but it is also connected to notions of heterosexuality and couplehood. In this paper I will explore the ways that unmarried and childless older men talk about relationships and childlessness in relation to norms of masculinity and heterosexuality, notions of ageing, growing old and approaching death.

    Ageism and Anti-ageism in Public Policy2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses the anti-ageist rhetoric of a recent Swedish government investigation whose stated aim is to formulate a policy against ageism. The article discusses ageism and anti-ageism as implicated in an intricate relationship with each other from a discourse theoretical approach through an analysis of the discursive logics that operate in the text.

    The goal of old age policy is, according to the proposals of the investigation, to make itself redundant through the elimination of ageism. Negative stereotypes and discrimination because of old age are thus made the basis of governmental policy on old age. The logic behind this is an understanding of older people as an artificial category because of its heterogeneity, and that age alone should not form the basis for government policy.

    The report argues that old age is changing and that this is related to new generations of older people; the first teenagers. The new generation of older people are said to be constituted by an active life style that will challenge established norms and ways of living in old age.

    But, counter to this dissociation from the decline narrative of ageing runs a parallel construction of older people as a category from an administrative perspective. From the logic of the administrative perspective older people, as a category, is defined by a negative deviation in relation to the generalized adulthood of the non-old.

    The paper discusses the different discursive logics that are used to articulate older people as a category in the investigation, and how the logics undermine the legitimacy and validity of each other. The analysis of these logics offer an interesting and fruitful way of understanding how older people as a category is constructed in public discourse.

    Det blev inte av : äldre ensamstående män utan barn på landsbygden: rapport nr 3 från forskningsprojektet Boende, åldrande, livslopp på landsbygden2011Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige har det gjorts få studier av vad det innebär att åldras på landsbygden. Den övervägande majoriteten av forskningen om äldre människor och deras livsvillkor produceras med empiriskt material, såväl som frågeställningar, som tar sin utgångspunkt i de förutsättningar som det urbana livet ger. Det urbana fungerar normerande och livet på landsbygden uppfattas ofta i termer av vad som saknas där i förhållande till livet i staden. Kunskapsutvecklingen om livet i glesbygd har därmed kommit att hamna i skymundan (SOU 2006:106). Denna studie är ett bidrag till forskningen om att åldras på landsbygden och i fokus är livet och livsvillkoren för äldre ensamstående män utan barn utifrån ett genusperspektiv. För studien har elva ensamstående barnlösa män på landsbygden intervjuats.

    Single older men in rural Sweden: Norms of masculinity2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we focus on older men in rural areas who have remained unmarried and childless throughout their lives. The rural context has consequences for the ways that gender structures the lives of people throughout the life course, both materially and socially. Norms of masculinity remain strong in rural areas and there is less room for deviations than in urban areas. This is not least connected to the scarcity of meeting places, and above all to that of alternative spaces. Despite this, studies of rural masculinity have to a little extent explored the importance of age and ageing for the ways that masculinity is lived and articulated in rural areas. In this study, we explore the ways that unmarried and childless older men talk about relationships and childlessness in relation to norms of masculinity and heterosexuality, notions of ageing, growing old and approaching death

    To age as a man: Ageing and masculinity in a small rural community in Sweden2013In: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 58-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to add to knowledge on the relation between ageing and masculinity in society by looking at how older unmarried and childless men in a small Swedish rural community articulate their masculinity in relation to being old. The study is based on interviews with eleven men. An intersectional perspective is used to analyse how age and gender interplay in the self-presentations as well as how their identity is articulated in relation to the rural context. The interviewed men articulate their identity through the use of a logic we call ‘what I have done is who I am’. This reaffirms the rural aspect of their masculine identity as well as the work-centred values of midlife as a reference point in the identity construction in old age when their bodies to a diminishing degree can live up to the physically defined masculinity of the rural context. In this situation, the local rural community is important for the way the men perform both age and masculinity in their daily lives. The men’s place integration can have a mitigating effect as it makes it possible to have their physically defined rural masculinity accepted as the ‘truth’ of who they are. To be known, to have their history known, we argue is central for the resignification of the old, devalued, body as a masculine body. Their continued place integration is a resource in that it can sustain their self-presentation as men defined by their stoic work character and not by their age.

    Äldre i massmedierna: Osynliga eller förknippade med problem2009In: Åldrande, åldersordning, ålderism / [ed] Håkan Jönson, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press , 2009, 1, p. 96-104Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vilken är den massmediala bilden av äldre? Givetvis finns det inte en utan många. Dessutom är det inte självklart vad som menas med äldre. Ordet äldre har i princip två olika men sammanlänkade betydelser. Den ena avser en relation; att vara äldre än något eller någon. Den andra betydelsen handlar om benämnandet av en kategori människor. I Sverige syftar "de äldre" vanligen på personer som fyllt 65 år, men betydelsen är beroende av sam-manhang och relationer. När "de äldre" pekas ut som den ekonomiska krisens vinnare avses för det mesta ålderspensionärerna. En tidningsartikel som anger att våldtäktsmannen ofta är "en äldre man", handlar däremot inte om män över 65 år utan här står begreppet i relation till offret som är "en yngre kvinna". Inom idrotts- och nöjesvärlden används ofta lokala "ålderstrappor", den som anses gammal i ett sammanhang kan vara ung i ett annat. Under år 2005 och 2006 kommenterades exempelvis den 33-årige fotbollsspelaren Zinedine Zidanes spel i termer av att han var gammal, trött eller slut. När han gjorde något briljant resulterade detta i uttryck som "än kan gubben" och paradoxalt nog "där såg vi lite av den gamle Zidane". När man uppnår en för sammanhanget kritisk ålder – som idrottsperson, nöjes-profil, politiker, industriledare etc. – tenderar alltså ens handlingar att tolkas som något man gör på grund av eller trots åldern. Som mediekonsument kan man öka sin åldersmedvetenhet genom att exempelvis notera i vilken ålder (och för vilket kön) som åldrandet kommenteras. Prova med sportkröni-korna i kvällspressen eller kändisporträtten i SJ:s tidning Kupé! Zidane pen-sionerade sig för övrigt efter fotbolls-VM 2006.

    I detta kapitel ska vi i huvudsak ägna oss åt massmedial rapportering om "äldre" med betydelsen personer över 65 år, men de kontextuella betydelserna vi kommenterat ovan bör hållas i minnet. Vi återkommer till dem i slutet.

    Nursing homes with lifestyle profiles - part of the marketisation of Swedish eldercare2018In: International Journal of Care and Caring, ISSN 2397-8821, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 49-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish nursing home residents are very frail, but a new trend is for nursing homes to adopt a lifestyle profile. Based on interviews with 16 representatives of care organisations, this study investigates the reasons for adopting profiles in this way. The analysis shows that the existence of lifestyle profiles is strongly linked to a market discourse centred on freedom of choice. It is concluded that lifestyle profiles are used as a differentiation strategy in order to justify marketisation, exposing the Swedish eldercare system – which does not permit competition on the basis of price or standards of care – to market forces.
