"It's such a norm brott": Non-Monogamous Parenting Practices in Sweden
Annika Horvath

Normative ideas of what it means to be a ‘good’ parent can often come into conflict with non-monogamy. This thesis explores how non-monogamous parents living in Sweden adhere to certain normative relationship and family practices, while rejecting others. Additionally, this thesis identifies some of the counternormative strategies that non-monogamous parents integrate into their parenting practices. This research is based on data that was collected through nine semi-structured interviews with twelve non-monogamous parents living in Sweden.

 

Becoming and belonging - narratives of negotiating racial mixedness, femininity, and sexuality
Nora Grollmuss

This study is about how eight mixed-race women, residing in urban Sweden, experience their own becoming through body and sexuality and through the way they experience that other individuals and the outer world view them. The methods used are ethnographic interviewing and autoethnographic writing. The theoretical framework is mainly located in the field of feminist and anti-racist phenomenology and includes becoming, belonging, intersubjectivity, disidentification, and affect theory. I find that the women of this study become through negotiation of circulating images, stigmas, and norms and that becoming is a corporeal process that is felt and thought. We create belongings through our becoming.

 

Attachment-Oriented Motherhood and the German New Right on Instagram
Isabel Köhler

Social media are a prime site for the construction but also the contestation of motherhood discourses. In my thesis, I studied how motherhood was conceptualized in the German attachment-parenting community on Instagram. Following allegations of new-right activities within the community in 2020, its members reevaluated their parenting practices and self-understanding in a public debate. Using critical discourse analysis, I found that motherhood (self-)conceptions were discursively entangled with questions of resistance to and tolerance of new-right activities.
