    ”Alltså vi har kul tillsammans, vi har kul som lag liksom”: Hur maskulinitet(er) konstrueras och iscensätts inom pojkungdomshockeyn2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim:

    The aim of the study on a more general level was to illuminate how players and leaders in an adolescent male ice hockey team constructs and stage masculinities. Due to recent shifts in the society regarding the norms of normality and masculinity the aim of the study was to examine how this affects the construction of masculinity. The following questions guided the investigation: How does players and leaders relate to orthodox and inclusive ideals of masculinity? What norms regarding sexuality become clear in the team? What norms regarding ethnicity become clear in the team?

    Methodology:

    The methods used in the study were participant observations of an adolescent male elite hockey team and qualitative interviews with four of the players in the team. The team consisted of players between 15-17 years old and some of the players had another ethnicity than Swedish. The observations and the interviews were analyzed by a deductive approached from the theories of queer theory, hegemonic masculinity theory and inclusive masculinity theory, and also with a thematic content analysis.

    Result:

    The results indicate that much of the activities in the adolescent male hockey team were about producing players to take the next step of their careers. It also seems like the players were prepared to expose their bodies to a lot of pressure that sometimes lead to injuries. Some of the players talked about the pressure that makes them play with injuries were the chance to show off their abilities was one particular reason for doing this. Some statements are also said about the  fighting in the sport were players told that these fights occur due to the fun of it and also because of the trash talk that is occurring on the ice. There is also some examples of how heterosexuality is normative in the team and is emphasized by the players and the leaders. However two of the interviewed players imply that they would not mind if some of the players in the team came out as gay. To some degree a Swedish ethnicity is the unproblematic origin and players from other countries sometimes gets commentaries because of their ethnicity.

    The meaning of the Chinese cultural keyword xin2013In: Journal of Languages and Culture, ISSN 2141-6540, Vol. 4, no 5, p. 75-89Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In China, the word, xin 心  (often translated as ‘heart’) is frequently used and its concept is central to Chinese culture. However, its meaning is not exactly the same as ‘heart’ in English. Using qigong as the context, this article aims to explore the meaning of xin as a cultural keyword in order to gain an in-depth understanding of Chinese culture and knowledge within that cultural system. Qigong is a Chinese health maintenance system and healing tradition which integrates physical activity with training of the mind and self-cultivation. One of qigong’s basic components is xin adjustment. It is impossible to convey the full meaning of this concept without understanding the meaning of xin. In Chinese culture, xin is the root of physical and mental life. It is the seat of all emotions, and embodies the inherent goodness of human nature and wisdom. Xin helps to guide the individual’s way of life and attitude, and can lead one to deep contentment.

    Between the sport club and the workplace: The non-transferability of women student-athletes’ leadership attributes2023In: NAJS (Nordic Association for the Study of Contemporary Japanese Society) Conference, 2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how women’s status and leadership capabilities developed through club sport seldom manifest in sport-related employment in Japan. Female student-athletes have long invested in the school club sport system in Japan to augment personal growth, social status, and educative or career opportunities. The cultivation of life skills and leadership attributes are important aspects of sport club pedagogy for females. However, the status and skills women foster through club sport less often materialise in sport-related workplaces due to the centralisation of male-male hierarchies and conservative gender ideologies. The qualitative data utilised in this paper was collected through field work and a questionnaire survey (n=240) at a sport university in Japan in 2022. The data provides a sample of female student-athletes’ views on post-university life options that are shaped by gender norms and their perceived leadership attributes. Literature and statistics on women’s employment in Japan are drawn upon to examine how gender inequity continues to play out in sport-related workplaces despite shifts in women’s consciousness and the capabilities developed through university club sport. Women’s leadership capabilities are underutilised and Japan could make better use of human capital like other countries that are better at harnessing the capabilities of women.

    Women and Martial Art in Japan2023Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This lecture will focus on the ethnographic work and key arguments from Dr Kate Sylvester’s recent publication, Women and Martial Art in Japan.  The book, based on extensive original research, examines the practice by women in a university sport setting of kendo, the Japanese martial art which, using bamboo swords as well as protective armour, and descended from traditional swordsmanship, instils in its practitioners, besides physical skills, societal values of etiquette and resilience as well connecting them to a “traditional” outlook, which includes a gendered cultural identity.  The book therefore illustrates an unexplored example of identity construction in Japan, one which legitimises women’s sport experiences within a male-centric physical culture, unpacks the notion of “tradition” in kendo and unravels its stultifying control over women’s kendo participation, and discusses the androgenicity of women’s participation to highlight its subversive potential to develop women as leaders in sport, politics, and other fields which continue to be very male dominated in Japan.
