Gendered, sexualized and embodied activities in service work 

The study, funded by The Foundations’ Professor Pool is a continuation to my long term research interest in gendered and sexualized practices in work. The argument is that the huge transformations in work and in relationships between work and other spheres of life draw on gender divisions and gender differences. Simultaneously, however, the transformations rest on the ways in which the same divisions and differences have become brittle, elastic and individual. Particularly I’m interested in, what kind of body- and sexuality-related pressures and demands do young adult women and men face in employment, and what kind of body- and sexuality-related pressures and demands do they face in navigating the relationships between work and intimate life. Further, I’m interested in, how do young adult women and men use and modify their bodies and sexuality with regard to their choices between intimate life and work. The research material will mainly consist of interviews.
