1. Iganski, Paul. "Everyday ‘Hate Crime’ and the Criminology of Everyday Life" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, St. Louis Adam's Mark, St. Louis, Missouri, Nov 11, 2008 <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Much scholarship on the problem of ‘hate crime’ barely utilises the potential of criminological theorising. Against this trend, this paper offers an analysis that situates the phenomenon of ‘hate crime’ in the genre of what has been characterised as the “new criminologies of everyday life”. Despite the obsession with organised and extremist ‘hate crime’ that arguably characterises the US literature on the topic, the analysis focuses on the foreground of ‘hate crime’ rather than looking deep into the souls of offenders. Informed by empirical observation of the situational dynamics of ‘hate’ incidents the paper argues that many such incidents are committed by ordinary people in the contexts of the routine activities of their everyday lives. Whilst providing important synergies with routine activities theory, the analysis offered by the paper, however, presents some significant divergences. It will be argued that the phenomenon of everyday ‘hate crime’ is a barometer of prevailing social structures of bigotry that provide the contexts for incidents to occur and the situational dynamics of incidents reveal the impotence of situational crime prevention for much ‘hate crime’.

Abstract: The everyday is often believed to hold an important key to innovation. Hence, private and public sector organizations alike are currently developing a keen interest in descriptions of the everyday lives of consumers, users, employees etc. (Thrift 2006; Cefkin 2009; O'Dell & Willim 2011). Through a wide range of methods and activities, everyday lives are laboriously scrutinized and attempts are made at bringing the resulting descriptions into innovation processes. Literature within the field of STS on innovation and users have noted this development and conceptualize the everyday in different and programmatic ways (e.g. Akrich 1992; Suchman, Blomberg et al. 1999; Halse, Brandt et al. 2010; Pantzar & Shove 2010). But what is this everyday and how, more precisely, is it handled in innovation projects? This paper develops a close analysis of how “the everyday” is enacted and handled in a Danish, government supported user-driven innovation project concerning work practices at a hospital. The analysis shows how different versions of the everyday at the hospital are enacted and handled in the innovation project. While some of these versions are seen as valuable to the project’s goal of innovating a new organization of work at the hospital others are discarded as standing in the way of such innovation. The focus is on the project’s different ways of enacting and handling the everyday lives of the users involved. It is argued that this handling of the users’ everyday is an important aspect in understanding how innovation happens – or not – in contemporary innovation projects.

"To Exalt Everyday Life at Court: Everyday Ceremony at the Courts of Denmark and Sweden" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The 62nd Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, Park Plaza Hotel and Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Ceremony at court could take many forms. Some were big and rare ceremonies such as royal funerals or coronations. Many ceremonies were quite unusual. It is, however, often forgotten that these ceremonies were rare and witnessed by few people. Even more important are the ceremonies of everyday life at court - dining, kissing hands, audiences and smaller receptions, just to name a few. These structured how royal power took form, showed the way monarchy worked, and reflected the elitist nature of early modern Danish and Swedish power - the courts of which developed in tandem. Here we clearly see what groups were politically interesting and what groups were peripheral. Who were included and excluded from these ceremonies? How were music, buildings and various forms of performances integrated into these everyday ceremonies? And what role did the weekly receptions (cours) play in linking to the female members of the dynasty?

Abstract: Primo Levi described the “grey zone” in the context of the Holocaust and the mass violence of concentration camps (1986). He explored the moral ambiguity in places where dichotomies such as good and evil, friend and enemy did not have sufficient descriptive power to encompass the complexity of human existence. The feminist philosopher Claudia Card applied Levi’s concept of the “grey zone” to discuss misogyny and the complex challenges of moral ambiguity, judgement, and representation it creates in human existence (1999, 2000).

Similarly, Simone de Beauvoir’s Ethics of Ambiguity responded to the ethical imperatives of the post-World War II world by positing the necessity of human freedom in the context of humans’ simultaneous subjectivity and objectivity. What happens when we apply these concepts – “grey zone,” ambiguity, subjectivity – to the issue of sexual violence, both in the context of war and in peace? Debra Kay Cohen (2013) argues that sexual violence in war is often about the socialization of recruits brought into the conflict by force. Likewise, research on campus sexual violence has noted the bonding between perpetrators that is a part of some assaults in male-dominated spaces such as fraternities and male athletic groups. In these dynamics, the assertion of subjectivity is premised on, and created through, participation in rendering an object of the person subject to the assault. And often, systems such as law enforcement, the courts, and media use the assertion of a survivor’s subjectivity to deny the objectification and the assault.

What kind of resistance is possible within systems that so willfully deny the complexity of the assertion of human subjectivity? As Levi shows, there is no simple answer to such questions. However, Simone de Beauvoir, in her Ethics of Ambiguity and in The Second Sex, proposes reciprocity as a means of confronting the impulse to objectify others in order to assert one’s subjectivity. The work of creating conditions of reciprocity entails an acknowledgement of ambiguity, of the complexity of existence in situation, and a will to link one’s own freedom to the freedom of others. It challenges simplistic notions of subjectivity, of morality, and of judgement, and demands policies reflective of the lived existence of those whose experiences have been misrepresented and misperceived.

Abstract: One of the recurring questions whites ask when exposed to a critical racial analysis of racism/white identity, or concepts like “white privilege” or “internalized racial superiority,” is “well, what can I do about racism.” This paper addresses that question by drawing upon theoretical discussions of “micromoblization” and “framing” processes in order to highlight how white “critical antiracists” (CAR) work to combat racism in their daily personal and professional lives. White CAR adherents do that in the course of; the different ways they challenge the racial understanding and awareness of other whites; by naming and interrupting racism when it occurs; and by serving as an ally to people of color and other white antiracists. Thus, the paper not only draws attention to ever present, everyday opportunities for racial defection and racial treason available to whites, it also forces us to think about political activism in new ways. The essay closes by exploring how those in other dominant social statuses (i.e. male, heterosexual, non-poor, etc.) might employ CAR strategies, work to forfeit social privilege, and strive to address everyday, ongoing oppression and marginalization of subordinated groups.
