Mellan välvilja och förakt: en etnografi av kategoriseringar i staden
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The article examines the benevolence that young people who use wheelchairs encounter from unknown people. Benevolence is considered as a form of compassion that hides contempt for what is perceived as deviant from the norm. By using Sartre’s idea of the stickiness of matter and Young’s concept of ascribed identities, benevolence is also being studied as something that turns into internalized self-loathing among the young wheelchair users. Through the two different perspectives, the cultural bases of benevolence are analysed as power relations between people.
