  3. 3. Progressive Women, Traditional Men : The Politics of 'Knowledge' and Gendered stories of 'Development' In the Northern Periphery of the EU

    Author : Ulrika Dahl; Lisa Rofel; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; European Union; Modernity; Sweden; Progressive; Women; Traditional; Men; Politics; Gendered stories; Cultural anthropology; Womens studies;

    Abstract : This dissertation in Cultural Anthropology and Women's Studies is an ethnographic account of the meaning and politics of social scientific "knowledge production", exemplified in gendered stories of regional "development" in the inland northern Swedish province of Jämtland, after Sweden's 1995 entry into the EU and the cultural meanings they assign to men and women. European integration is experienced as an ongoing peripheralization of modernity, registered in visions of regional "development" centered on the heteronormatively defined ideal of jämställdhet (equality between men and women) and on the "resources" of place and history, forged in a cultural imaginary shared by social scientific researchers, state agencies, and grass-roots "practitioners".
