Young women's cultural meetings in Sweden : A qualitative study of how young women are affected by a multicultural affiliation in Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att få en bredare och djupare förståelse för hur kulturella möten mellan en familjs ursprungskultur kontra den svenska kulturen påverkar unga kvinnor i Sverige. De teoretiska utgångspunkter som denna studie utgår från är symbolisk interaktionism, samt teorierna om spegeljaget, etnisk identitet och kulturell identitet. Artiklarna som valts för studiens genomförande berör områden som migration och identitet, samt kultur och kulturkrock. För att uppnå studiens syfte har en kvalitativ och fenomenologisk forskningsansats valts. Metoden för studiens genomförande är semistrukturerade intervjuer. Studien påvisar bland annat att majoriteten av respondenterna upplevde en viss påverkan av yttre kontroll från sin familj i yngre ålder som gradvis reducerats i samband med tid, ålder, samt föräldrarnas integration och sociala anpassning. Genom studiens resultat har det även konstaterats att majoriteten av respondenterna upplever att de tillhör både den svenska kulturen men även föräldrarnas ursprungskultur(er). Det har ävenledes framkommit genom studiens resultat och analysarbete att den multikulturella tillhörigheten kan orsaka generationskonflikter samt värde- och normkrock.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to gain a broader and deeper understanding of how cultural meetings between a family's origin culture and Swedish culture could affect young women in Sweden. The theoretical starting points from which this study is based on are Symbolic interactionism, as well as the theories of Looking-glass self, ethnic identity and cultural identity. The articles selected for the study's implementation concern areas such as migration and identity, as well as culture and cultural clash. In order to achieve the aim of the study, a qualitative and phenomenological research design has been chosen. The method chosen for the implementation of the study is semistructured interviews. The result of this study indicates that the majority of respondents experienced at a younger age a certain influence of external control from their families which was gradually reduced with time, age, as well as parents' integration and social adaptation. The study results also indicates that the majority of respondents feel that they belong to both the Swedish culture as well as the parents' culture of origin. It has also been found through the study's results and analysis that the multicultural affiliation can cause generational conflicts along with value and norm clash.
