The failure and success of a Swedish film diversity initiative
Mara Lee Gerdén

 submitted an application that included a synopsis of my idea for a TV series –​the main character being a strong woman of colour working as a personal trainer at a gym –​and it was accepted. This is how I ended up as one of the participants of the Fusion Programme of 2016. In this chapter, I examine the affective politics of the Fusion Programme, focusing on tensions between participant motivations and a film policy which, I  argue, balanced conflicting frameworks:  an outspoken effort to attain goals for gender equality, the desire to implement a perspective on diversity, a

The focus of the interviews was on participants’ views on their professional role in relation to patients, their personal experiences with the patients and their perceptions of different patient groups (adults vs. children

I introduced some participants in Chapter 1 . Diane and Misha came from one part of the city I call Hill district and Rachel from Church district. In this chapter I introduce the districts and describe the methods I used to conduct the fieldwork this book is based on. The approach to gathering knowledge I use is interpretivist and the methodology is to research with an ethnographic sensibility. For readers unfamiliar with ethnographic methods or wanting to read more, I have included additional detail about the methods in the Appendix. For readers not

freedom dreaming . 5 To freedom dream is to embrace a politics which has ‘more to do with imagining a different future than being pissed off about the present’, though the latter certainly holds strong. This dreaming of a better world is not entirely abstract, but rather is built out of a long history of Black resistance. It is a recovery of the scraps and fragmentary visions left behind by revolutionaries. In this book, we combine the insights of our participants with the lessons of activists, intellectuals, and

because you’re so happy to count the money you’re getting in your hand. I’ve been trapped in it for years and years and years… I can’t see a way out of it. (Linda, in her fifties, Hill district) You mustn’t be a spendthrift, you need to be quite careful and sure… I don’t agree with people being in a lot of debt and I do think, these days, people want things that they can’t have. (Rachel, in her fifties, Church district) These two extracts reveal a divide in what low- and high-income participants believe about personal debt. For Linda, payday loan-style debt

Council. We first look at how debates around the ‘science–​policy interface’ manifest themselves more generally. When is discussion of scientific knowledge (or the presence/​autonomy of scientists) given weight at the high-​political level? Turning to indigenous diplomacy, we analyse and categorise Permanent Participants’ diplomatic interventions in the Arctic Council (which is, of course, just one stage upon which the multifaceted politics of indigenous sovereignty is enacted). In the concluding section, I discuss a concept borrowed from science and technology studies

their dual British-French heritage with pride and affection, the impact of the referendum was particularly powerful and inescapably personal. Importantly, its repercussions also extended to the findings presented in this book. I have asked myself whether my participants’ rose-tinted view of London and their normative criticisms of France still ring true today. Or have the tables been turned? Could the effects of one fateful day have shattered their sense of belonging to such an extent that they no longer feel welcome in London and have sought refuge in

An approach to remembering and documenting everyday experiences
Karin Widerberg

Introduction In an increasingly mediated society, the importance of discovery and questioning of the mundane becomes vital to ground actions, individually and collectively, in alternative ways. Memory Work is an approach developed to help explore the mundane by problematising the things we take for granted. Through recalling and documenting stories of memories and experiences, participants, researchers and research-subjects are invited to look for variety – in one's own stories as well as in relation to the stories of the others – regarding

10 Working ethnographically with sensor data Dawn Nafus This chapter is primarily about methods. I work in Intel Labs, the research and development organisation at Intel. Since 2007, I have been asking research participants to collect digital data about themselves, and giving it back to them in forms designed to stimulate conversation. I invite participants to reflect on data as matters of concern, not matters of fact (Latour 2004), and they largely respond in this spirit. Much like the chapter from Powell (Chapter 9 above), and in the spirit of the broader turn

for civil rights that persisted throughout those decades beneath the din of political violence. We also wanted to address the continued struggles for civil rights into recent times, which our project participants represented in various ways. If CCCR sought to explore how creativity was being and could be used by these groups in the present, part of our project was also to connect its theatre process with how civil rights groups had used creativity fifty years ago: we interviewed former civil rights activists about the inspiration they drew from and uses they made
