    Liminality in nature-based tourism experiences as mediated through social media2019Inngår i: Tourism Geographies, ISSN 1461-6688, E-ISSN 1470-1340Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The intersection between social media, liminality and nature-based tourism experiences hasn't been the focus of previous tourism research. Such intersection, on the other hand, is illustrative of how social media relate to the constitution and performance of tourism spatialities, tourist identities, storytelling and place-making, and can lead to relevant theoretical contributes. We aim to investigate how liminality is expressed in relation to nature-based experiences by tourists on social media, and what role social media plays in mediating liminality during nature-based tourism experiences. The analysis is based on a participatory netnography of images and text posts, as well as online interviews with users of the popular social media Instagram. Findings show that the expression of tourism experiences in nature is closely related to specific notions of liminal otherness as opposed to the urban life and the everyday, where nature and wilderness are expressed as related to the genuine, the authentic and a true inner self. Creative combinations of pictures, captions and hashtags make it easier for tourists to express the contrast between the natural landscape and the everyday landscape once they returned home. These combinations also relate closely to performances of resistant and alternative selves and communities. At the same time, such performances are mediated and contested between freedom of self-expression, surveillance and social norms, an aspect that makes their liminal nature ambiguous.

    Destination image in Uzbekistan – heritage of the Silk Road and nature experience as the core of an evolving Post Soviet identity2018Inngår i: Service Industries Journal, ISSN 0264-2069, E-ISSN 1743-9507, s. 1-16Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACTThe purpose of this research is to analyze the destination image of Uzbekistan presented by the DMO and the destinations images emerging from user generated content in social media posts. In this study, promotional images and user-generated images on the platform Instagram were examined by using content-semiotic analysis. The main findings show that the destination image of Uzbekistan is dominated by heritage and reference to ancient cultural traditions of the region. However, the image represented through user generated content on Instagram is more diverse and to a larger extent depict the destination through natural heritage and experiences in the natural landscape. Furthermore, Uzbekistan is concurrently trying to create a post-Soviet identity through a focus on its history prior to the Soviet past, with focus on heritage of the Great Silk Road which highlight that destination image construction is related to geo-political processes in society which includes contestations of national identity.

    Att tillaga en region: Den regionala maten i representationer och praktik: exemplet Skärgårdssmak2003Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    The connection between specific foods and specific places has, over the course of the past decade or so, come to constitute an important instrument in regional development strategies. The objective of this thesis is to study how regions are created and communicated in discourses on regional food and to examine how representations of regions are interpreted, given meaning and materialised in social practice. The thesis strives to understand regional food and regional food projects through a case study of a regional development project entitled ‘Skärgårdssmak’ (A taste of archipelago) in order to examine how and why food is used as an instrument in regional branding and regional development initiatives. ‘Skärgårdssmak’ is a project that has been implemented across the entire Swedish-Finnish archipelago region, including Åland. This is a ‘new’ region that has been defined in the context of the Interreg program for cross-border development within the European Union. The project has the ambition to create and market a regional identity and also to stimulate and develop small-scale business enterprises in the area. This has been approached through regional branding and the place-marketing of foodstuffs produced in the area as well as through the projection of a so-called regional ‘taste’, where associations to nature and authenticity form an integral part. The empirical material has been gained through interviews conducted with representatives from the project administration and with small-scale food producers and restaurant owners operating in the archipelago. Additional empirical material includes; official documents, information documents, marketing material, cookbooks and a television program. In the analysis a discourse of the archipelago’s regional identity is identified and examined. Interviews with entrepreneurs in the archipelago show that representations of the region influence, to at least some respect, the practice of the entrepreneurs and the way in which consumption products can be developed. In the thesis it is argued that the use of the concept of regional food, as is the case with all spatial representations, can be problematic. The use of the concept of ‘taste’ associates the region, as well as the producers and consumers of regional foodstuffs, with an exclusive and excluding regional identity.

    The sporting and heritage festival of Landsmot in Iceland: Identity expressions and performances of nation, gender and rurality2018Inngår i: Power, construction and meaning in festivals / [ed] Alan Clarke & Allan Jeppson, New York: Routledge, 2018Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter analyses the performances of nation, gender and rurality in the sporting and heritage festival of Landsmót in Iceland. Events and festivals celebrating national identity or the uniqueness of the culture and traditions of a specific region of place may be interpreted as arenas where identities of both people and places are staged and performed. Sports and cultural events may enhance and play with identities, such as the co-construction of gender identities and national identities as part of the event itself. These co-constructions and expressions of identity discourses as part of events and festivals are not least reinforced with the impact of social media and the posting of images by many other actors than the organisers or managers of the event.

    Trying to be Attractive: Image Building and Identity Formation in Small Industrial Municipalities in Sweden2008Inngår i: Place Branding and Public Diplomacy, ISSN 1751-8040, Vol. 4, nr 2, s. 102-114Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Efforts of creating and communicating positive images constitute a considerable part of contemporary regional development strategies. The use of different marketing practices has become a popular way to promote attractiveness for tourists, business and in-migrants in growth regions as well as in peripheral and economically vulnerable regions across Europe. In this article I explore the employment of different place marketing strategies as a development tool in specific local contexts. The study aims at understanding the role of place marketing in the process of image building in municipalities with experiences of negative economic development and unfavourable images. The empirical material used consists of a case study with six small industrial municipalities in the Swedish Bergslagen region. Strategies of image building are described and analysed by using a conceptual model of different cultural economy approaches to development. The case study indicates that place marketing in a broader sense should not only be looked upon as a matter of selling the municipality to outsiders such as tourists and potential in-migrants. In some types of municipalities, place marketing efforts are rather a matter of adding new aspects to, or entirely changing the place brand. An important target group is in this case the inhabitants of the region. By selling itself to ‘insiders’ the municipalities are trying to create a discourse of attractiveness.

    Still a white paradise?: Photographic representations of Jamaica as a tourism destination2016Inngår i: Tourism, Culture & Communication, ISSN 1098-304X, E-ISSN 1943-4146, Vol. 16, nr 1/2, s. 59-74Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Visual images, from travel brochures and television commercials to internet advertisements, represent a powerful element of tourist destination marketing. This article seeks to understand how destination marketing represents people and places through visual images while examining the role of tourism discourse in the construction of cultural meanings and identity. Using Jamaica as a case study, the researchers explore the issue of contemporary touristic images. A combination of content and discourse analysis was used to examine images included in printed marketing materials and on the DMO’s website drawing upon postcolonial theory as a critical and contextual perspective that provides an interpretation of the meanings that are conveyed by these representations. The main findings indicate that decades after the end of colonialism in Jamaica, marketers perpetuate the presentation of paradisal destination images using visual representations. It is argued that colonial tropes and practices of “Othering” remain fundamental to the meaning and rationale of seeing Jamaica and the travel experience. However, this study also identified strategies that could be further explored in an effort to counteract colonial discourse, as the use of culture and local folkways opens up avenues for the (re)evaluation and (re)representation of Jamaica and the holiday experience

    En väg till utveckling?: Betydelsen av väginvesteringar för regional utveckling - exemplet Falun-Borlänge2007Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport behandlar förutsättningar för regionala utvecklingseffekter av en väginvestering. Projektet är en inledande studie kring effekterna av vägen mellan Falun och Borlänge som öppnades för trafik 2005. Projektet är finansierat av Vägverket. Projektet avser att besvara två huvudsakliga frågeställningar: Vilka samhälleliga effekter får en ny väg mellan två städer som ligger inom samma lokala arbetsmarknad? Kan betydelsen för en region av en väginvestering påverkas genom medvetet arbete från regionens aktörer för att utnyttja dess potential? I vår studie går vi bortom själva tidsvinsten och fördjupar oss i hur utbytet mellan de två kommunerna ser ut och förändras. Vi vill också komma åt orsakerna till dessa förändringar. Det är intressant för oss hur aktörernas perspektiv och förväntningar omvandlas till beslut kring resande, byggande, kollektivtrafiksatsningar osv. Betydelsen av den nya vägen avgörs till stor del av hur regionens aktörer ser på den och agerar för att ta vara på dess potential. Studien kan ses som en förstudie. Avsikten har varit att studera utbytet mellan orterna innan vägens färdigställande och att kartlägga synen på regionens potential, vägens betydelse hos företrädare för näringslivsorganisationer, större arbetsgivare, politiker, m fl. Frågorna måste besvaras genom flera olika delstudier med skilda perspektiv. Vi har arbetat med intervjuer med beslutsfattare i den berörda regionen, vi har studerat pendlingsrörelser, analyserat kollektivtrafikens utveckling och vi har försökt att sätta in vägen i ett regionalpolitiskt utvecklingsperspektiv. Fokus i studien ligger på institutionella förhållanden och begrepp och processer i regional utveckling.

    Willingness to commute long distance among job seekers in Dalarna, Sweden2013Inngår i: Journal of Transport Geography, ISSN 0966-6923, E-ISSN 1873-1236, Vol. 28, s. 49-55Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous studies on commuting behavior and willingness towards commuting have analyzed individuals who are active in the workforce and have largely focused on larger metropolitan regions. This paper presents results from a survey of unemployed job seekers in the county of Dalarna, Sweden and analyzes the differences in willingness towards long-distance commuting between individuals with different socio-economic situations and experiences of unemployment. The analysis is conducted through a linear probability model complemented with a logistic regression model. Conclusions are drawn on the socio-economic factors that influence the probability of an individual’s willingness to commute longer than 40 minutes. The analysis also takes interaction between different factors into account. The study concludes that the factors influencing the willingness to commute are gender, level of education, and the presence of children in the household. Furthermore, the interactions between age and length of unemployment, age and educational level, and age and gender are shown to be significant in the willingness to commute long distances.

    Performing identity and culture in Indigenous tourism: a study of Indigenous communities in Québec, Canada2015Inngår i: Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change, ISSN 1476-6825, E-ISSN 1747-7654, Vol. 30, nr 12, s. 1-14Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to analyze the ways in which Indigenous tourism affects representations of identity and culture, and how tourism practices are described, negotiated and related to development in Indigenous communities. This aim is met through a study, including interviews and observations in Québec, Canada, where Indigenous tourism has received increased attention and economic importance in recent years. Tourism is put forward as positive for economic as well as social and cultural development, through alternative income opportunities and the revalorization of traditions and cultural practices. Individuals from four different ethnic nations were involved in the study: Innu (formerly known as Montagnais), Cree (Eeyou), Wôbanaki (Abénakis) and Hurons (Wendat). From the interviews conducted for this study, we find that Indigenous tourism influences the ways in which individuals see themselves, and how they perceive their identity and culture. Through the production of Indigenous tourism products, the notion of authenticity is challenged, and performed in ways that benefit contemporary life within the communities. But these performances may also reproduce or challenge traditional Indigenous identities, and fuel tensions and conflicts between different groups within the communities.

    Heritage tourism and inherited institutional structures: the case of Falun Great Copper Mountain2011Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, ISSN 1502-2250, E-ISSN 1502-2269, Vol. 11, nr 1, s. 54-75Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the local resource that a mine represents and analyses the role of stakeholders and institutions during the development of heritage tourism. The paper aims to examine the role of stakeholders and their interpretation of heritage in the management process in the case of the Great Copper Mountain World Heritage Site in Falun, Sweden. The paper focuses on local strategies for developing heritage tourism in which concepts of institutions and path dependency in terms of inherited social and economic structures can shed light on more general local development processes. The empirical material consists of interviews, official documents and marketing material. While the goal of many of the interviewed stakeholders is to promote tourism development, a common view is often lacking in terms of what the tourist product is or how the role of the World Heritage Site can be interpreted with regard to tourism activities. There are also sceptical voices regarding the development of activities and attractions devoted to entertainment without educational purposes. The marketing texts focus on the landscape and the 17th century system of production, which further supports the view that the preservation of the remnants from this period will be prioritised in contemporary management policies. The present paper interprets this concept as an indication of the strength of the institutions and ideas that promote the importance of education and historical facts related to mining communicated by former mining-related stakeholders as well as by heritage organisations, including UNESCO.

    Mine as a resource for regional development: mining and cultural tourism institutions and landscapes in Falun and Kiruna2006Inngår i: Conference ”World heritage – current research questions”, Falun, 16-17 November, 2006Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    A mine is not only a site for the production of minerals. The industrial landscape surrounding the mine with the large slag heaps and typical buildings and environments have for hundreds of years been a symbol of production processes, profitable business and hard work. The very same landscape is now interpreted and given quite different meaning depending on the role of the mine in place specific contexts and a global system of production and consumption processes. In the mines of Falun and Kiruna the industrial landscapes are used and given meaning in different ways. One of the reasons for this is that the mine in Falun has been closed since 1992 and the mine in Kiruna is still in use. The landscape as a symbol for the history of the mining and its surrounding activities in Falun are now developed for different types of experience-related activities. The mine in Falun is also classified as a world heritage by UNESCO which gives the mine a special status as an important cultural heritage site. In Kiruna the industrial landscape of the mine is not primarily a landscape of experiences and cultural preservation. The mining company, Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara AB (LKAB) is planning to expand the production with enormous consequences for the town of Kiruna and its cultural heritage. At the same time the industrial landscape of the Kiruna mine is also a potential resource for experiences both in terms of the historical mining town with its old church but also the spectacular mountains of waste stones and the sound of the ongoing production under ground.

    Mines and places in transition: The production and consumption of industrial landscapes in Falun and Kiruna.2007Inngår i: Session: Geographies of Cultural Industries and Tourism, Bergen, 2007Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays a mine is seeing not only as a site for the production of minerals. The very same landscape is now also interpreted and given quite different meaning depending on the role of the mine in place specific contexts and a global system of production and consumption processes. Depending on this perspective there are two localities of Falun and Kiruna where the industrial landscapes are used and given meaning in different ways. In Kiruna the iron ore production in response to the external markets demand is expanding. It is a reality that the central parts of the city will be relocated in order to avoid the risk of damage due to the operations in the mine. The latter way of using the natural resource is looked upon as a traditional and thus of an unquestionable matter. Transition to the post-industrial society in Europe made it clear that even mines should be given a different role or face. The transition from one type of industrial production system to more consumer-oriented and highly of a cultural/historical importance is one the way in Falun. Are these ways of seeing the mine contradict with each other? How do they contribute to the overall economic development in these two localities? Our project aims to examine the similarities/differences between the two production systems in order to get deeper understanding of processes that generate regional growth.

    Tourism development in the Russian Arctic: Reproducing or challenging the hegemonic masculinities of the frontier2018Inngår i: Tourism, Culture & Communication, ISSN 1098-304X, E-ISSN 1943-4146, Vol. 18, nr 1, s. 67-80Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The image of the Arctic can be understood as a part of a larger discourse of the north as an uncivilized, untamed frontier, not suitable or accessible for modern, urban people, but a place for strong adventurers, hunters, and explorers. In this study, we seek to understand how hegemonic masculinities of the north both inform and are challenged by tourism and its representations and practices in the Russian Arctic, in particular the Nenets Autonomous District (NAD). The study is based on the analysis of data collected during several field trips to the region during the period of 2012-2013 and 2014, including semistructured interviews with key stakeholders and observations of tourism practices, as well as content analysis of promotional images of selected tourism companies. Tourism in the NAD is typically adventure based: snowmobile safaris, fishing, hunting, and white-water rafting. There are also different types of indigenous tourism, such as living with reindeer herders for a period of time. The tourism industry covered herein consisted of microfirms and small businesses. The entrepreneurs were all middle-aged Russian men and the tourists were predominantly male middle class Russians from metropolitan regions, traveling as groups of friends or colleagues. The results show that despite the willingness of the tourism entrepreneurs to broaden their customer groups and offerings, the products reproduce the destination as a playground for (male) "hook and bullet" tourists. However, there are also examples of how tourism may challenge or reconstruct the understandings of typically masculine or feminine duties or roles in some specific local contexts.

    World Heritage and tourism innovation: institutional frameworks and local adaptation2014Inngår i: European Planning Studies, ISSN 0965-4313, E-ISSN 1469-5944, Vol. 22, nr 8, s. 1625-1640Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The interest in heritage as a tool for destination development has recently been substantial in Sweden, especially when it comes to receiving World Heritage (WH) status. The possibility of using the WH brand in developing tourism products and marketing destinations has great potential for many heritage destinations. The aim of this paper is to discuss innovation processes within heritage tourism. The focus is on the role of WH status as a factor influencing innovative practices at different Swedish WH sites. This study uses qualitative methods, such as interviews and analysis of written material from five selected Swedish WH sites, with in-depth analysis of the Great Copper Mountain in Falun. To what extent does WH status change the preconditions for tourism development at WH destinations? What is the role of institutional frameworks in this process? This paper will show how WH may facilitate tourism innovation mainly through developing new products and marketing strategies, but also by institutional innovations concerning new forms of collaboration and networks.

    The quest for snow: Adaptation strategies of alpine skiing destinations in Sweden2013Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The impact of climate change is considered one of the major challenges that the winter sport tourism industry faces today. Sälen, one of the major skiing destinations in Sweden, is situated in the southernmost part of the Swedish mountain range and is therefore one of the most vulnerable destinations when it comes to the effects of climate change. The aim of this paper is to examine and discuss adaptation strategies to climate change that have been implemented in Sälen, with a special focus on increased snowmaking. We discuss snowmaking in relation to alternative adaptation strategies such as increased summer tourism, and relate the adaptation strategies encountered in Sälen to how destinations in the Austrian Alps, which have warmer temperatures, have approached the situation. Those that we interpret as adaptation strategies are mainly focused on maintaining the mass touristic character of winter sports destinations and even extending the production of downhill skiing. These strategies of adaptation and development demand continued intensive snowmaking and an even accentuated quest for snow. However, Sälen is trying to overcome its dependence on downhill skiing as its sole and dominant activity. The strategy of developing summer tourism is problematic, however, not least in relation to the parallel advance in increased snowmaking.

    Performing gender and rurality in Swedish farm tourism2015Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, ISSN 1502-2250, E-ISSN 1502-2269, Vol. 15, nr 1-2, s. 138-151Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The diversification of farming towards more service-intensive businesses enables innovation and competitiveness within the farming sector. However, running a hospitality and tourism business significantly differs from farming and requires different competencies. It entails face-to-face customer relationships and creating experiences based on the identity of the place and the entrepreneurs. By inviting in guests/customers, the farm is transformed from primarily an agricultural production place to one that produces experiences and services. This paper aims to analyse and discuss how women engaged in farm tourism perform rural and gender identities by producing experiences and services, and how these performances may reproduce or challenge traditional rural and gender identities. The study is based on interviews with women in the two regions Dalarna and Uppland who run tourism businesses on working farms. The interviews show that the entrepreneurs must cope with tensions and conflicts between agricultural production and tourism at the farms in terms of not only practical work and duties, but also how gendered farming identities are performed.

    Förutsättningar för pendling i sårbara arbetsmarknadsregioner2009Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Regionförstoring är ett begrepp som under senare tid blivit allt mer populärt inom såväl forskning som politik och planering. Regionförstoring genom ökad rörlighet på arbetsmarknaden har identifierats som ett medel för att åstadkomma regional tillväxt inom den regionala utvecklingspolitiken. Då förutsättningarna för regionförstoring avgörs i individers möjlighet att pendla undersöker vi i denna rapport förutsättningar för pendling bland anställda vid två företag i en arbetsmarknadsregion som betecknas som en sårbar industriregion. Denna typ av region kan ha särskilt mycket att vinna på en ökad pendling då utbudet på arbetsmarknaden är begränsat. Samtidigt är det viktigt att förstå de individuella förutsättningarna i varje lokal kontext för att få kunskap om de faktiska möjligheterna till pendling och arbetsresor. Rapporten syftar till att undersöka hur förutsättningarna för pendling skiljer sig åt för individer i en sårbar region. De aspekter som vi särskilt fokuserar på är betydelsen av utbildningsnivå och kön för benägenheten att pendla. Det empiriska materialet som ligger till grund för resultaten är dels en enkätundersökning och dels intervjuer, både enskilda och i fokusgrupper, med anställda på företagen Spendrups bryggeri AB och ABB Power Systems.

    Skoterturismen och utvecklingen i Funäsdalsfjällen: En uppföljning av projektet "Hållbar utveckling i Funäsdalsfjällen"2007Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Projektet ”Hållbar utveckling i Funäsdalsfjällen” pågick under 1999-2001 och har både nationellt och internationellt omskrivits som ett lyckosamt och banbrytande projekt med målsättning att utveckla skoterturism i den svenska fjällvärlden utan att konflikter och störningar uppstår som kan försämra förutsättningarna för andra turismgrenar i området. Syftet med denna rapport är att redovisa resultaten från en uppföljningsstudie av projektet ”Hållbar utveckling i Funäsdals¬fjällen”. Projektets olika delmål har följts upp dels via en enkätstudie riktad till ett urval av skoter- och turskidåkare som besökt Funäsdalsfjällen, dels via ett antal djupintervjuer med företrädare för de olika lokala intressegrupperna. Dessutom har skoterturismens effekter på den lokala ekonomin specialstuderas inom ramen för ett examensarbete. Vi bedömer att projektet har varit lyckat och uppfyllt de målsättningar som satts upp för projektets verksamhet på kort sikt. En viktig förklaring till detta har varit projektets utgångspunkt i konsensusbeslut. Från intervjustudien blir det tydligt att de olika grupperna av aktörer och intressenter har olika syn på hur utvecklingen i Funäsdalsfjällen ska se ut på lång sikt. Vissa vill exempelvis fortsätta att utveckla skoterturismen medan andra anser att gränsen för skoteråkningens påverkan i området är nådd. För fortsatt hållbar utveckling i området är det sannolikt mycket viktigt att alla intressegrupper fortsätter att delta i arbetet med att utveckla Funäsdalfjällen.
