Det ska göra ont att leva: en studie på planerad smärta

Toresson, Johan LU (2012) SANK01 20121
Social Anthropology
Abstract
This bachelor thesis deals with conceptions of planned pain. It aims to be a starting point, a platform, for further studies and research of pain. It includes ethnography based upon data collected from both online and offline informants. The ethnography is based upon multi-sited semi-structured interviews and non-structured interviews. The thesis also explores possible connections between informants of different field sites, their definitions and experiences of pain, and if we can produce new perspectives on cultural identities, or society at large, through pain.
The conclusion is that there might be a connection between the informants in the ethnography, and that possibly that connection might be based around the need for control.
