    Author : Gustaf Forsell; [2019]
    Keywords : Sweden; interwar period; pro-Nazism; race; Christianity; liberal theology; völkisch ideology; Sveriges Religiösa Reformförbund;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to scrutinize how Sveriges Religiösa Reformförbund (Swedish Association of Religious Reform), a pro-Nazi Christian association in interwar Sweden, constructed the concept of race during the years 1929–1940. Using hermeneutic content analysis and a theoretical approach based on “biopolitics” and “political theology,” I examine the construction during three identified periods: 1929–1933, 1934–1937, 1938–1940.

  2. 2. Clearing up the bullshit : Deconstructing 'feminisation', gender stereotypes and gender biases within UK veterinary surgery

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Tema Genus

    Author : Pilar Girvan; [2019]
    Keywords : veterinary; feminisation; sociology; discourse; gender; stereotypes; professional projects; boundary work; discourse;

    Abstract : This thesis explores ‘feminisation’ discourse(s) within the UK veterinary profession, including the ways in which gender stereotypes and biases also influence such discourses and experiences of working within the field. Drawing upon and combining a range of sociological, organisational and feminist theories such as Witz’s (1992) theory of gendered professional projects and Butler’s (1990) highly influential notion of performativity, I am able to contextualise and expand upon the ‘doing’ of the veterinary profession as well as being able to frame ‘feminisation’ discourses as paradoxes, potentially producing the effects they articulate.
