Orsak: våldtäkt: om våldtagna män i medicinsk praktik
Information om publikationen
The aim of the thesis is to describe and analyse how meanings about rape and raped men are produced within Swedish healthcare. The central question is how different patient positions and conceptions about the phenomenon of male rape are created through care practices and how, in turn, that affects the care of raped men.
The empirical material consists of interviews with healthcare professionals who have worked with raped men, field notes from participant observations and materials such as legislation, care protocols and medical records. In order to analyse how rape and raped men are articulated in practice and to highlight the norms that govern health- and rape care, the material has been analysed from a poststructuralist ‘logics’ perspective.
