    From quotas of men to gender mainstreaming: Gender equality policies in academia from the 1960s to the 2000s2020In: Nordic Gender Equality Policy in a Europeanisation Perspective / [ed] Knut Dørum, Oxon: Routledge , 2020, 1Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter aims to analyse how the problem of gender inequality in academia has been constructed in Nordic and EU policies, with a particular emphasis on Sweden. Inspired by Bacchi’s “What’s the Problem Represented to Be?” method the article investigates the presuppositions that underpin representations of the gender inequality in academia and how these representations of the problem have come about since the 1960s. The article shows how psychological and different ethical presuppositions form the basis for the problematisation of gender inequality and the policies and strategies aiming at achieving gender equality. It also shows that the representations exhibit differences and similarities between the Nordic countries and interdependence between the discussions in these countries, and that EU policies and regulations have had both a constraining and enabling role. The article ends with a discussion on what effects the different presuppositions might have had on the current situation for gender equality in academia.

    Managing the manosphere: The limits of responsibility for government social media adoption2024In: Government Information Quarterly, ISSN 0740-624X, E-ISSN 1872-9517, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 101909-101909, article id 101909Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The prevalence of hate, threats, gender trolling, and other problematic communication patterns in social media prompts concerns about the responsibility associated with government social media adoption. In addressing this issue, this paper adopts a feminist perspective to enrich our understanding of how governments assume responsibility for their adoption of social media. The study contains a sentiment and thematic analysis of responses to a government video campaign on Facebook, which seeks to heighten public awareness about men's violence against women by highlighting problems surrounding sexist jokes. The video targets two audiences in terms of gender, resulting in various outcomes in sentiments, trolling, and trolling management. Results show disparities in sentiments between males and females, the diverse strategies employed in trolling, and how both users and the local government manage trolling. The local government deploys different strategies for trolling management, encompassing both engaging and non-engaging approaches. Notably, engagement is constrained to the targeted male audience and male trollers. The primary responsibility for trolling management is delegated to users, predominantly women, who become proxies for the local government. This dual practice of ignoring women as relevant stakeholders and utilizing them as proxies is considered a failure of responsibility. The study contributes to the advancement of citizen engagement research by delving into the intricate dynamics of trolling and trolling management within the specific context of government social media. Moreover, it sheds light on issues of responsibility inherent in the adoption of social media by governmental entities.

    The power in positionings: A Foucauldian approach to knowledge integration processes2020In: Management Learning, ISSN 1350-5076, E-ISSN 1461-7307, Vol. 51, no 3, p. 336-352Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the role of relational power and discursive positioning in the knowledge integration process of an interdisciplinary project developing a steam turbine. As boundaries are an important focus of study for knowledge integration studies, more engagement is needed to not only map boundary work in the knowledge integration process, but also to acknowledge the role of power in this context. With help of governmentality and positioning theory, we show how power struggles are manifested as boundary work that both reinforces and undermines temporal and domain-specific boundaries. The study concludes that these reinforcements and underminings are central for our understanding of how knowledge integration develops. In addition, the study shed lights on the significance of the co-existence of domination and freedom in the project work. By acknowledging power relations and studying them as they are played out in discursive talk, the study contributes to an increased understanding of the nuances and intricacies of knowledge integration processes.

    Desilencing Complexities: Addressing Categorization in Cross-cultural Management with Intersectionality and Relationality2018In: International Studies of Management and Organization, ISSN 0020-8825, E-ISSN 1558-0911, Vol. 48, no 3, p. 294-313Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A central focus of cross-cultural management research is how individuals and organizations differ across national cultures and how that fundamentally shapes their thoughts and actions and serves as a unit of identification. In this article, we critically reconsider the essential categorical nature of culture, problematizing categorization and questioning national culture as the primary basis of differentiation. We draw on intersectionality, an approach that helps understand how multiple categories are experienced by the individual, and on relationality, an approach that conceptualizes people, organizations, and their actions within dynamic patterns of relations and cultural meanings. Both approaches challenge the primacy, unity, and separateness of any given category, the a priori determination of categories (and associated boundaries) in research, and the nature and stability of boundaries. Based on this we advance notions of boundary work and boundary shifting that help explore how today’s sociocultural groups and categories, and the boundaries that separate them, emerge and change. We conclude that, while the extant cross-cultural literature has come far in identifying differences, relationality and intersectionality can enable cross-cultural scholars to engage in research practice that better reflects the complexities of sociocultural life. We contribute to theory by suggesting why and how these two approaches can be used to explore complex cross-cultural management phenomena.

    Dubbel diskriminering av kvinnor: En rapport om genusbaserad utsatthet för ohövligt beteende och sexuella trakasserier på KTH2024Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report on double discrimination concerns the preva- lence of sexual harassment and incivility at KTH. Another name for sexual harassment and incivility is gender-based violence. The aim of the report is to contribute to change for a more inclusive culture at KTH through increased aware- ness of the phenomenon and its prevalence, and by contrib- uting to constructive discussions on what can be done to reduce the problem. The report is intended to be used inter- nally at KTH in training, leadership development, group exercises, at workplace meetings and in other appropriate contexts where the organisation’s culture and values are 

    on the agenda. The report contains a brief introduction to the concepts of gender-based violence, sexual harassment and incivility, partly by looking at how these concepts are described and interpreted in research, and partly by looking at how they are defined in Swedish legislation. Research on sexual harassment exists within a variety of disciplines and is based on many different research questions, which is why we have made a number of delimitations. We have chosen to exemplify the research with overall theory of power and imbalance of power, as well as organisational research on sexual harassment, but we do not present research on the broader field of discrimination in organisations. 

    We present a summary of the results of a national survey conducted in the Swedish higher education sector in 2021 The aim of the report is to contribute to change for a more inclusive culture at KTH through increased awareness of the phenomenon and its prevalence, and by contributing to constructive discussions on what can be done to reduce the problem. 

    (Research and Collaboration Programme 2022) and results from KTH. The KTH data is supplemented with results from two different group exercises carried out at KTH in connection with presentations of the national study. These serve as qualitative examples in order to give a voice to the figures and diagrams. Finally, the results from the analysis of the KTH data are summarised, followed by suggestions regarding exercises and discussion questions that can be used to discuss change and possible measures.
