    Kristen ortodoxi i svenska läroböcker: En analys av framställningen av ortodoxi i fyra läroböcker innan den nya läroplanen. LGR11 och GY11 och fyra efter2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to gain understanding of orthodox Christianity in Swedish educational material. The aim was to compare the presentation of orthodox Christianity towards pupils before the new curriculum and after. With the help of an analytical approach by Bergström and Boreu ́s and the interpretation strategy by Quentin Skinner, I have studied material used in school for the subject religion. I have limited my educational material in one way. The material that I have chosen is produced from the year 2003 until 2012. The goal is to recognize how orthodox Christianity is presented to Swedish pupil ́s. The result will contain a discussion about the ways a specific religion is represented in school, what kind of picture is created for this religion and if there is a difference in these presentations in a period of time.

    Graffiti på spel: En kvalitativ undersökning, via NUG, om graffitins autonomi2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

     

    Comments regarding Swedish graffiti writer NUG’s film Territorial Pissing (2008) express how graffiti and art appear to be two different worlds and when these worlds come together the expression of graffiti seems to transform. This thesis, Graffiti at stake: a qualitative study, via NUG, about the autonomy in graffiti, aims to both examine and bring about a general discussion on whether graffiti is autonomous when it enters the art world. The thesis also discusses transformed content and expression in the works of NUG when performed in a different context; what is exhibited in an institutional art context and what positions does NUG occupy? The French sociologist Pierre Bourdieus conceptions field and autonomy has been used as a theoretical framework, and partly as method as well. By studying the works of NUG another expression has been found within an institutional art context – black irrational lines and cascades. These are interpreted as energy generated from the act of performing graffiti and have been discussed in relation to the graffiti- and art practice as well as the symbolic capital. The thesis argues that the autonomy is situated in what is recognized and acknowledged. The thesis also concludes that NUG is entering into a masculine, conventional and strong artist position, similar to Pollock.

    Poetics and Contemporaneity2018In: Conference Aesthetics, Contemporaneity, Art, Aarhus: Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies , 2018, p. 31-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this talk, I will address aspects of temporality in poetics. I will argue, that temporality characterizes a certain use of poetics that seems to be the opposite of poetics as it ap- pears for example in literary theory. I will argue, however, that while feminist criticism sometimes use poetics as a means to oppose encompassing theoretical frameworks, it nevertheless integrates the traditional use of poetics since self-reflexivity is an important aspect here. In this regard, poetics rather emerges as a framework for thinking than a framework that defines thinking. In this sense poetics takes place in the contemporary, that is, in the making of theoretical and artistic practices. In the first part of the talk, I will discuss how the self-reflexive aspect unfolds in relation to the rejection of encompassing theoreti- cal frameworks in feminist criticism. In the second part of the talk, I will address the Ameri- can poet Lyn Hejinian’s notion of a poetics that is characterized as ”a thinking on”. This characterization is based on the stress on form in poetic language that Hejinian traces back to Russian formalism. I will claim, that this is another example of the temporal aspect of poetics, as this ”thinking on” takes place in the contemporary.

    Tonight no poetry will serve – A Memory Wound2018In: NSEParis 2018 Abstracts, 2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The title of our paper alluds to a poem by the American writer Adrienne Rich. The poem suggests the sublime capacity of art to effect change, while at the same time acknowledging that art also can be ineffectual in the face of despair. The history of public art is fraught with controversy, and this fact is also addressed by a number of researchers in our field. As the philosopher Hilde Hein writes ”we go to private art, but public art is come upon,” referring to public art as ”unwanted art” (2006, 55). Our project is not concerned with the controversy of public art, but with a topic that we believe is under-theorized in our field, namely how the social and ethical meaning of memorials and public art are reproduced as a discourse. We argue, that there is a Post Witness Art discourse that reproduce the idea that art must bear wittness to catastrophic events, even when the people that are effected by these events opposes the very existence of art. We will argue, that to look at Post Witness Art as part of a discourse that defines art as remembrance and mourning, means that we have to acknowledge that this discourse carries a certain language, words that in themselves manifest power. In our paper we ask, what does claims of democracy and inclusiveness mean when the art world is faced with opposition? What if there are situations were art simply is not the answer, as the title of Rich´s poem suggests? We will address these matters with a specific case in mind, namely Memory Wound. This is a memorial design by the Swedish artist Jonas Dahlberg, commisioned by Public Art Norway, in the aftermath of the horrific attacks at the government buildings and Utøya in Norway on the 22 of July 2011. The attacks claimed a total of 77 lives and hundreds were injured. With a ”wound that can never be healed” Dahlberg intended the design to “reflect the abrupt and permanent loss.” Dahlbergs design illustrates the loss in the presence of a cut – like an injury – and has a site/non-site logics that is a recurrent image in many contemporary memorials. In our paper, we will adress the collision between the people that live in the proximity to where Memory Wound were to be situated, and the advocators for the memorial, namely the art world. In an open letter an international group of acclaimed artists and curators appealed to the Norwegian government to ”be brave and allow Memory Wound to become a dignified place of healing”. This letter exhibits what we will adress as a tacit understanding of how public art should function, as a mediator between the private and the public. The arguments in favour of Memory Wound that came from the art world show, that there is an underlying assumption that art has a democratic and healing function, that is reflected by the words that are used. We will discuss the advocator’s arguments in the context of a post-habermasian notion of modernity and a “progressive reading on history” where freedom, autonomy and emancipation will be the result. In this research project we work together as a collaborative duo called arketeg.freyr, and this talk will consequently be presented as a combined effort.

    Googleannonser, komprimerad reklam?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie har i syfte att språkvetenskapligt undersöka hur reklamgenren förädras i ett komprimerat format, formatet googleannonser. För att få fram de språkliga dragen analyseras 30 st googleannonser ur ett genreperspektiv med innehålls-, strukturell och interpersonell analys som metod. Resultatet visar på ett flertal gemensamma drag med traditionell reklamgenre men uppvisar också skillnader. En strukturell skillnad är att googleannonsens rubrikdel tenderar att vara hybrid, de innehåller ofta både information om tjänster och produkter tillsammans med företagsnamn. Andra språkliga drag från materialet är bortprioriteringen av innehållsliga och interpersonella drag annars vanligt återkommande i traditionell reklamgenre. De gemensamma dragen för googleannonserna skulle kunna ingå i en ny modifierad subgenre till traditionell reklam, där nya konventioner för utformingen utvecklats. 

    The purpose of this study is to explore how the advertising genre adapts to a compressed format, from a linguistic perspective. The format being Google ads. 30 Google ads are analyzed with a content, structural and interpersonal method to distinguish linguistic features. The result shows multiple linguistic features related to traditional advertising genre. The study also finds diffrences. One divergent structural feature is the Google ads headline, who tends to have a hybrid function that includes both information about the product and information about the company. The material differ in comparison to traditional advertinsing genre in content and structure features, where some parts have been prioritized due to the limiting format. The new features for the Google advertising genre could be a part of a new modified subgenre, where new conventions has developed.

    Hunden som resurs: En studie om hunden som ett pedagogiskt hjälpmedel2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study shows how two different schools use dogs as a method of education. The purpose was to find out what kind of pedagogical thoughts my informants have about children' slearning in their connection with dogs, and in which way the interaction between the children and the dogs could affect the learning ability. I also wanted to find out what kind of possibilities and restrictions the dogs could give to the education according to my informants but also to find out how the projects were financed. To be able to answer these questions I put together a qualitative study, I had four interviews with people that were involved in the projects in one way or the other. To analyse the empirical material I looked up different theories about teaching, communication, interaction and motivation.

    My results showed that both schools have applied the method of “teaching dogs” as a form of resource for students with special needs. One of the two schools only applies the method on one class consisting of six students and their teachers, who are remedial teachers. The other school cooperates with a company that educates therapy dogs. The dog handlers, who don't have a remedial teacher's education, come every week with one or two dogs. All students in the school who are in need of extra support can work with the dogs after an investigation made by the health department at the school.

    All my informants believe that the project has given positive results such as the notification that students are more motivated, communicate and interact better with each other and the teachers. The students are also happier and have a higher regularity of attendance in school than before. But the project requires a lot of money and also needs to be thought through thoroughly because of allergies and the risks of dogs causing any kind of physical damage. Another risk is that the dog causes the student to lose focus in their studies instead of helping them concentrate. But if the teacher is aware of these downsides it seems that the problemscan be solved.

    Code Switching on Flashback: A Study of Code Switching on an Internet Based Discussion Forum2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is a study of how English is used in a Swedish discussion forum called Flashback. The mixing of two languages when speaking or writing is called Code switching. Code switching often occurs in bilingual societies. In Sweden it is possible to say that English is a second language due to the daily encounter with the language through education, but also through different media. The daily encounter with English and the number of English loan words in Swedish might be a reason why code switching exists in Sweden. The material that was analyzed in this essay was collected from Flashback and analyzed with a method based on Sharp’s (2001) study of spoken language. The aim of this study was to see how often and in what way the users on Flashback code switched between Swedish and English. The results showed that even though English was used in the discussion, Swedish was the main language. Most of the code switches that were found in the material occurred in mixed units, in other words English was mixed with Swedish.

    "Prata högre! Jag hör inte vad du säger": En kvalitativ studie om elevers och pedagogers upplevelser av Södertäljes nya skolmodell2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    "Speak up! I can’t hear you"

    This qualitative study is built on an investigation of a newly instated model that is used when building or renovating schools. The principles of the model are based on building schools with an open plan design where the walls are made of glass and the classrooms are not shut closed by walls, instead the classrooms are completely open except from screens that are used to indicate the ambit of the rooms. This model has been well debated and that is the reason why we chose to do this study.

    The purpose of this study is to find out how students and teachers experience this model. To do this we have done interviews and observations. This study is based on the following questions:

    What are the pros and cons with this model according to pupils and teachers?

    How does the open environment affect the teachers’ way of working?

    What are the students’ thoughts on colours, noises and brightness in this environment?

    The conclusions of this study are that the main concern is the level of noise that according to the teachers have a negative impact on the students who have difficulties concentrating. The teachers mainly talked about the downsides of the model, while the students were more positive regarding the environment, although they did mention the downside of the level of noise. The students did appreciate the physical environment and referred to it as fresh and cosy.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay discusses how insurance companies inform policyholders regarding home insurance. What level of support do insurance companies offer policyholders in order to supply them with enough knowledge to make an informed decision? Is information regarding insurance communicated in simple terms, or is it riddled with industry specific terminology?The essays focus is important to examine from a social context; Swedish social process does not select an insurer for an individual who neglects to choose one for their home insurance. Sweden's welfare system does otherwise provide a helping hand for a lack of decision with regard to preschool and school choice.

    Den [själv]kritiska granskaren: En essä om hur kvalitetsbegreppet görs verksamt i förskole- och granskningspraktiken2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här vetenskapliga essän är utgångspunkten min egen granskningspraktik. Jag undersöker den utifrån en undran jag emellanåt har om tillsyn och kvalitetsuppföljningar fyller det syfte de är tänkta att ha. Vilket är att öka kvaliteten i förskolor. I essän använder jag begreppet granskningspraktik där både kvalitetsuppföljningar och tillsyn ingår. Undersökningen riktar sig mot hur de som granskar förskolor och de förskolor som granskas upplever hur det är att vara den som granskar och den som granskas. Jag undersöker också hur begreppet kvalitet görs verksamt i granskningspraktiken och förskolan. Det handlar om hur man talar om och definierar vad kvalitet i förskolan är och hur man tänker sig att kvalitet ska manifesteras i förskolans praktiska arbete. Genom intervjuer av professionella praktiker som arbetar med kvalitetsutveckling i förskolan på olika sätt har jag utforskat granskningspraktiken och kvalitetsbegreppet i förskolan. Intervjuerna har en form som jag kallar samtalsintervjuer. Där samtalar deltagarna i par och jag själv är också delaktig tillsammans med en kollega. Syftet är att skapa ett reflekterande samtal om de områden som jag utforskar.  I den skrivande processen av essän för jag ett samtal med deltagarnas röster, den valda teorin och mina egna erfarenheter som gestaltas av två berättelser om granskning. Vad som träder fram i detta samtal är å ena sidan en förvirrad eller kanske osäker bild om hur kvalitetsbegreppet ska förstås i förskolan och å andra sidan en vilja att förstå och tolka kvalitetsbegreppet. Dels hur det görs verksamt i relationen mellan förskolepraktiken och läroplanen för förskolan och dels hur det görs verksamt i relationen mellan granskningspraktiken och förskolepraktiken. Både deltagarna och teorin riktar sin blick mot betydelsen av pedagogen som kvalitetsbärare. Det framträder också en kritisk blick mot hur granskningspraktiken generellt ser ut dag där mätbara resultat och målstyrning är i fokus. Begrepp som kommer fram som alternativ till ett fortsatt arbete med granskning och kvalitet är meningsskapande, dialog och profession.   

    Det bidrag den här essän vill ge till ett fortsatt arbete med granskning och kvalitet i förskolan är att inspirera till att söka en ny utgångspunkt. Den utgångspunkten kan finnas i den praktiska kunskapens fält där begreppen klokhet och ansvar får en tydlig plats i ett offentligt samtal om professionalitet och meningsskapande.

    Mellanrummet: En essä om skillnaden mellan upplevd och beskriven kvalitet i förskolan2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här essän är att undersöka om det går att synliggöra ett mellanrum som upplevs finnas mellan tillsynsansvarigs upplevelse av förskolans kvalitet, hur förskolan beskriver sin kvalitet och vad kvalitet är för barnen i deras vardag på förskolan.

    Mellanrummet gestaltar sig som ett fält med information som är svår att få syn på. Essän utgår ifrån två berättelser om hur barn kan uppleva sin vardag på förskolan och vad kvalitet kan vara utifrån ett barnperspektiv.

    Berättelserna har också fokus på mötet mellan tillsynsansvarig, förskolechefer och pedagoger. Deras roller prövas utifrån att vara nyckelpersoner som har att föra in begreppet kvalitet i förskolan.Teorier och styrdokument om vad kvalitet är i förskolan ställs i relation till tillsynsansvarigs, förskolechefers och pedagogers roll. Aristoteles kunskapsbegrepp fronesis blir ett stöd för att få syn på den praktiska kunskap som nyckelpersonerna äger och utövar.

    Tillsynsbesöket granskas i skrivandet som ett kontrollerande möte men också som ett möte med möjlighet till utveckling. I mötet har tillsynsansvarig två roller som lyfts fram, den kontrollerande och den vägledande. Det prövas också som ett gränsobjekt för deltagarna att förenas runt. Synen på begreppet kvalitet studeras i spänningsfältet mellan tillsynsansvarigs syn på kvalitet och förskolechefers och pedagogers syn på kvalitet.

    Under skivandet träder nya perspektiv på kvalitetsbegreppet fram. Ett intresse för fortsatt utforskande väcks, där begrepp som makt, interaktion, profession och självkännedom blir intressanta.

    Konflikthantering: med elever i mindre undervisningsgrupp med psykosociala problem2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to portray conflict managing associated with children in a small class and what problems they may face each day at school. What types of conflicts and what consequences do teachers practice? This study is based on these following questions:

    1. Is there any difference for solving/measure for students with psychosocial problems or ADHD in a conflict or does teachers still works with the same methods?
    2. What types of conflict solving does schools use?
    3. What is important to consider with students in a small class who has psychosocial problems and ADHD to prevent conflicts?

    Summary: To answer my questions in this study, I´ve used qualitative methods, interviews and observations. I have used my cellphone for recording the interviews so that all content from the informers are accurate. My theoretical points concerns on having strict rules both inside and outside the classroom. Teachers in school use first one method in conflict solving, a need based approach, which means that teachers first listens to the involved students and interacts thereafter. Every school in Sweden has a document called Plan for equal treatment, which guides teachers on how to deal with conflicts. They also use other rapports such as arrangement plan and incident rapport.

    The conclusion of my study is that children with psychosocial problems do feel better harmony with strict rules. They need guidance and goals so they know what to do and what is expected of them. If the rules bend, it is more likely that conflicts and other disorder in the classroom emerges.

    Jakten på de optimala lösningarna: En vetenskaplig essä om förskollärarens ansvar och yrkesetik2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish childcare has undergone radical changes in the last 15 to 20 years. It has evolved from kindergarten to pre-school, in other words, gone from simple childcare to an active learning environment with the child as the center. Official documents, such as the pre-school curriculum and other guide documents, define the role and work ethics of the pre-school teacher. In my thesis I argue that it is essential to have an ongoing and continuous discussion at pre-schools on the practical applications of these frameworks and ambitious goals.

    What do you do when you simply cannot give every child the individual time they should have according to rules and regulations? How do you stay an active and present pedagogue in today’s pre-school with large classes and heavy workloads? How do you establish a common professional work ethics within a pre-school so that all children are treated equally? In my scientific essay, I examine these issues based on a real-life situation: Ellen in the hallway.

    A pedagogue must continuously make balanced decisions based on rules and regulations, on life- and work experience which, in many cases, contradict each other. In this context, it is important that pedagogues with more experience actively share their knowledge and experience with their colleagues. This creates a common professional ethical base that gives the individual educator knowledge and confidence which, in turn, creates a more stable, secure and consistent environment for the children.

    I begin by clarifying the role of the pedagogue and what it means to be an active and present pedagogue. Furthermore, I look closely at pre-school work ethics, starting with Aristotle’s virtue ethics and his theories on the links between theoretical and practical knowledge. Finally, I examine the routines at my pre-school and how they relate to the Swedish pre-school curriculum, Lpfö-98/10.

    Pedagogiska miljöer kan skapas överallt på skolan: En kvalitativ studie om hur lärare ser på samspelet mellan lärande och miljö i Svenska skolor i Thailand2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It is extremely important that the construction of the environment where children and youngsters spend the majority of their days supports the progress of their mentality. That is why I in this study will investigate what a certain amount of teachers consider of the interplay between learning and environment and how they thought a satisfactory environment structure eras of learning and also what the teachers consider to be missing at this point.

    The schools where I gathered my material are located in Thailand but they use the Swedish curriculum as a starting point and the students at these schools are mostly Swedish speaking.

    An important element that I came across was the impact of the surrounding on how to shape and use the environment as a tool in the teaching. Thailand’s climate is different than the Swedish climate; I want to investigate if that has any effect in the teaching.

    The educational environment in schools includes not only the classrooms but also every other space closely connected. Earlier scientific research as well as those people that I used as objects for interviews agrees regarding the fact that a suitable and stimulating environment are one of the most impact on how well children learn. How this environment should look like can be structured in different ways depending on the teacher’s thoughts on that a development environment looks like.

    Barns delaktighet och inflytande i den pedagogiska dokumentationen i förskolan2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to find out what the educators idea of educational documentations in ratio to childrens inclusion and impact in pre-school are, together with the child's own perception of the concepts of documentation. We proceeded from the following issues: What are the significance of educational work according to the teachers? What is the teachers idea of a childs impact and inclusion in educational documentation? In what way do the children have influence over, and inclusion in educational documentation? What are the childrens feelings of the documentations? In order to find answers to our questions, we used qualitative examinations consisting of seven educators and seven children from various pre-schools in Stockholm, and thereby, we have analyzed our results. As our theoretical frame, we used ourselves of Vygotskijs and Säljö's sociocultural perspective that is about "progress and learning", which is achieved by interaction and cooperation in a social context. The result shows that the aim of educational documentation is to reveal the childs development and learning, and also to involve the parents by putting up documents on the wall. It is important for children to both participate and influence both the documentation and other sections of the school where it affects the children, but this is sometimes hard to fulfill in all situations. The educators realises that to make the children participate, they simply have to rely on the child group and their interest. They also have given activities that everyone should follow. The lack of time is an obstacle for all educators, but what they all have in common is that having the participation and weight of the child would benefit the childs growth.

    Crossing the Divide: Voice and Representation of African Americans: Kathryn Stockett and Harper Lee: - I understand the weight of history but can I be your sister?2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project examines how the oppression of African Americans, especially those in domestic service to white families, is reflected in literature. The two works The Help and To Kill a Mockingbird will be the main sources. I investigate issues of race and skin colour, as well as the depiction of the ‘black’ and‘ white’ races in America in literature. Yet I will also make use of writers on African American issues to evaluate the writings on the main works concerned. What I will try to establish is whether the two authors (Kathryn Stockett and Harper Lee) effectively give a voice to the less empowered African-American segment of US society (this question of empowerment will be addressed below). And most importantly, I attempt to understand how two white women from relatively privileged backgrounds can reach across the supposed racial divide and, through aesthetic expression. I contend that peaceful protest and the mobilization of the arts in all its forms raised awareness of the terrible wrongs suffered by African Americans in the timeframe concerned in this work – anawareness raised not just in the USA but also around the world - and led to a new situation in which discrimination is not only illegal, but also widely acknowledged as deeply wrong.

    Sälformen släpar skinnet: Om naturen i Aase Bergs tidiga diktning2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to describe how nature is portrayed in swedish poet and critic Aase Berg’s two earliest poetry collections, Hos rådjur (1997) and Mörk materia (1999), and how it relates to notions of humanity, culture and civilisation. The concept of ”nature” is problematized in a short survey of how it has been used by and critizised in ecocritical literary theory, which is used as the main theoretical framework for this survey, with an emphasis on selected theoretical concepts by Donna Haraway. As a methodological starting point, ”nature” is tentatively defined as ”that which does not let itself be subsumed under the human, culture or civilisation”, and this definition is contrasted with how the concepts are handled in the texts.The investigation shows that the relationship of nature to the human is a fundamental theme that provides a structure for both poetry collections. In Hos rådjur, wild nature takes the shape of a ”raw” animal that seems to threaten the human characters. In Mörk materia the threat to humanity comes from matter itself, matter that is dark and unruly. The nature/culture relationship is complex and continuously evolving, with several different and mutually exclusive possibilities being explored in the poems. Berg’s poetry has often been characterised as transcending boundaries, and metamorphoses and dissolution of boundaries between humans, animals and other organisms are abundant in the two poetry collections. Despite this, the study demonstrates how dualistic notions of nature and culture, body and spirit, are upheld throughout the texts.

    Kroppslig längtan: en intervjustudie om hur icke-binära kön materialiseras2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Through the concept of longing, this study aims to explore non-binary embodiment and becoming, with a focus on examining how non-binary embodiment makes and is made possible. The study takes it departure in Karen Barads theories and concepts such as intra-action, and it is also from Barad the concept of longing is inspired. Longing is understood as the drive that is and makes possible life and the livable life. Longing is not reserved for humans but is rather tangent a posthuman understanding of matters agency, where matter is understood as an active agent in its own creation. The study is based on a combination of go-along interviews and semistructured interviews with six non-binary people.The study can be understood as an effort to make possible new or other ways to understand sex/gender, embodiment and becoming. Ways that is not based on a framework of understanding that in its foundational structure reduces the non-binary as something unintelligible. In the study longing is used as a means to create order and direction in the analysis of the participants stories. Longing has the benefit of being in constant movement and change, as such it contributes as a way of understanding that do not limit the participants stories of sex/gender, embodiment and becoming.

    Möjligheten att vara omöjlig: Hur 'kön' förstås och får mening i självdefinitionen hos fyra icke-binära personer2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to examine the possibility to be impossible, to examine how the socially intelligible can come to exist. This is done through the concept of sex/gender, as sex/gender has such a determining place in the production of what can be understood as human, it also has the properties to shed light on the possibility to be and exist beyond the socially intelligible. In this paper I will interview and analyze how four genderqueer people understand themselves and their identity in relation to the phenomenon sex/gender. Through Karen Barad’s concept of posthumanist performativity and her conceptualization of phenomena and intra-action I understand sex/gender, not as entities, but as phenomena of ever changing and ever intra-acting agents. The study suggests that the limitations of the concept of sex/gender can be addressed through an understanding of the body as itself a web of intra-actions, that is, the body as a phenomenon.

    Kvinnligt+flicka/manligt+pojke=traditionella könsmönster: en semiotisk bildanalys av grundskolans tidigare års matematikböcker2014Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay focuses on the pictures in mathematics books for elementary school. The purpose was to see if images in mathematics books for elementary school show traditional gender roles.

    The aim of the essay has been broken down into following research questions:

    • Vilka färger förknippar de olika matematikböckerna till pojkar/män respektive flickor/kvinnor?
    • How many times were girls/women and boys/men illustrated in the mathematics books?
    • What behavior is associated with masculinity and femininity?
    • Which colours are associated with boys/men and girls/women in the mathematics books?

    I used a semiotic image analysis method to study the pictures presented in the mathematics books. The theories in this essay were used to see how society makes girls become girls and boys become boys and in what ways the genders are portrayed in relation to each other. In addition, the theories include the question of whether a specific colour is given to a specific gender? The analysis evidently confirmed that the images in the mathematics books demonstrated traditional gender roles. There was evident proof that the behavior of both boys/men and girls/women showed distinct features of the traditional gender roles. However, boys/men were more likely to stay in their traditional gender roles in terms of the colours of their clothes than the girls/women did.

    "Det går bra!": en vetenskaplig essä om stress och pedagogisk kvalitet på förskola2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My essay proceeds from an episode in my occupation at preschool which is a stressful event for me. I experience that we pedagogues have gotten a tougher work climate since the revised preschool curricula came in 2011 and I therefore investigate the community´s climate of today and the background for the revised preschool curricula and what it means to us pedagogues. I investigate what stress is and what effect it has on children and adults and explore what the concept pedagogic quality stands for. In my reflektions I emphasize different manors I and my colleges handle and see on stress and our pedagogical comittment. I also reflekt on if we adults produce stress to the children and what educational activity the children get from pedagogues with existing work load.

    The purpose with my essay is to understand the best way for me to handle the pedagogues increasing obligations an work tasks and at the same time avoid stress for the children and the pedagogues and to create the best conditions for the children to get activities with pedagogical quality.

    My investigation shows that the preschool curricula have been revised to give the children the knowledge base they need to be able to get on in the community. I also found that we pedagogues have a difficulty linking our work situation and our work tasks with giving the children an even pedagogical quality on the activities at our preschool. For some pedagogues the work load produces stress which can mean health risks. Some children also shows signs of stress behavior due to the pedagogues increasing absence from the children which also has an effect on the pedagogical quality. I also seea risk, due to our work load, of a dislocation of our values regarding some of our tasks like routines and care and a decreasing ability to see each child´s needs. As a pedagogue at preschool we all have a responsibility for the pedagogical quality as well as to note inadequasies in our work invironment. To be able to make changes we pedagogues should support our own communication as well as our dialog with our head group. Even though a present pedagogue doesn´t garantee, it still is the prerequisite for activities without stress and with a pedagogical quality.

    Political Aesthetics: Addison and Shaftesbury on Taste, Morals and Society2019 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Providing a gateway to a new history of modern aesthetics, this book challenges conventional views of how art's significance developed in society.The 18th century is often said to have involved a radical transformation in the concept of art: from the understanding that it has a practical purpose to the modern belief that it is intrinsically valuable. By exploring the ground between these notions of art's function, Karl Axelsson reveals how scholars of culture made taste, morals and a politically stable society integral to their claims about the experience of nature and art. Focusing on writings by two of the most prolific men of letters in the 18th century, Joseph Addison (1672–1719) and the third Earl of Shaftesbury (1671–1713), Axelsson contests the conviction that modern aesthetic autonomy reoriented the criticism and philosophy originally prompted by these two key figures in the history of aesthetics. By re-examining the political relevance of Addison and Shaftesbury's theories of taste, Axelsson shows that first and foremost they sought to fortify a natural link between aesthetic experience and modern political society.

    Shaftesbury om poetisk sanning och det naturliga samhället2017In: Lychnos: Årsbok för idé- och lärdomshistoria / [ed] Katarina Leppänen, Göteborg: Lärdomshistoriska Samfundet , 2017, p. 11-26Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the most original voices in British post-revolutionary philosophy belongs to the third Earl of Shaftesbury (1671–1713). Rather than supporting the Hobbesian and Lockean idea of modern political society as an artificially formed creation, Shaftesbury perceives society as a beneficial outcome of nature and natural rationality. Shaftes­bury’s understanding of natural society is furthermore entwined with aesthetic mat­ters. The aim of the following article is twofold. First, due to the fact that Shaftesbury’s ideas rarely are analysed in any detail by Swedish scholars, it offers an introduction to Shaftesbury’s take on the complex relation between society and poetry to readers of eighteenth-century intellectual history in general, and readers of the history of literature in particular. Second, given that Shaftesbury is frequently regarded as the first modern advocate of aesthetic autonomy, I wish to problematize such an account by showing how Shaftesbury opposes the idea that poetry holds an instrumental value for society, while he simultaneously maintains the inseparability of poetical truth, artistic whole, and political naturalism. As this article shows, the Promethean myth of creativity is central for Shaftesbury’s understanding of the relation between society and poetry.

    Bildskapande: En undersökning i hur pedagogerna på en förskoleavdelning ser på och bemöter barns bildskapande2014Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report describes a study of how educationalists, from one preschool group, approach to and respond to children ́s creative activity in preschool. To answer the survey ́s purpose I used four research questions, which is the following:

    -What function do the educationalists give the creative activity in the working?

    -How do they see the importance of thecreative activity for thechild and its development?

    -How doeducationalists considerthat theyrespond to the child's creative activity?

    -Is thereany norms surrounding creative activity in preschool?

    The theoretical base of the study is rooted in the sociocultural perspective, where creative activity and visual arts can be seen as mediating cultural tools. The method is a qualitative interview of five preschooleducationalists. The conclusion is that these educationalists works with creative activity in aconsciousway, as they for instance seize the communicative function which takes place in the creative activity and visual arts. They use this function to create conditions for children ́s development and learning. They also see the function of processing expressions, and the link to play and imagination. In their work with creative activity they seem to have an agreement about the process as a central part, while it in contrast to this seems like the children is mostly focusing at the motive. The creative activity also seemsto be tightly linked to culture, in several ways, both societal and local. And the experience from home seems to be important. The conclusion also shows that the creative activity in preschool really is surrounded by norms. Which shows up to depend on, for instance, children ́s gender. But the norms also showto differ between adults and children, where they lean in different directions regarding to intentions and taste.

    Matematik - Språk och kommunikation: En jämförande studie i en internationell skola2014Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this essay is to compare two classes in an international school during their mathematic lesson. The international school offers education to their pupils in two languages; in Swedish and in English. Through this study I want to find out how teachers are working with language and communication during school hours. I will compare the work of two teachers and two classes to find out the differences and similarities between their work methods concerning language and communication during mathematic lessons.

    The main questions for the essay:

    • How do the teachers work with language and communication in this school during the mathematic lessons?
    • What similarities and differences are there between the two teachers in matter of methods of working with language and communication during the mathematic lessons?

    The research is based on interviews with the teachers and also on observations in the classroom during mathematic lessons. The difference between the two classes is that one class only speaks English during their lessons while the other class speaks both English and Swedish. The study is based on a socio-cultural perspective.  Education and development that takes place through interaction with other people is a significant part of the social-cultural perspective.

    In my result I learned that the two teachers I observed have more similarities than differences concerning their methods in the classroom regarding language and communication.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to analyze picture books from a gender perspective. The books are found in a book box that the libraries send out to preschools. This study is based on the following questions:

    • How are boys and girls portrayed in picture books?
    • Do the picture books encourage or discourage the principles of equality found in the Curriculum for the Pre-School and the equality work conducted in the preschools?

    I performed a qualitative text and picture analysis of 12 picture books. I used Maria Nikolajeva and Kajsa Wahlströms schedule of typical masculine and feminine qualities and activities when analysing the picture books. I reached the conclusion that in the vast majority of the books boys and girls are portrayed with qualities that are both typical masculine and feminine. Only a few books in the book box portray the boys and girls characters in a stereotype manner. Hence, as a conclusion, the analyzed picture books discourage the traditional stereotype gender patterns and therefore encourage the principles of equality as described in the Curriculum for the Pres-School.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the epideictic genre by using qualitative method to analyze acceptance speeches from the Swedish Grammy awards. These speeches and their speakers are often described as rhetorically mediocre and there seems to be a notion within the music community that an acceptance speech is personal and without deeper meaning. From a functionalistic perspective on genre, these speeches can be seen as working together with other genres that carry information about the winners. Why would skilled performers who know how to entertain an audience choose to repeat rhetorical mistakes? This essay uses different perspectives on rhetorical situation and genre as well as multimodal analysis of verbal- and nonverbal communication, to argue that these particular speeches in this particular situation come with their own set of expectations and values that the speakers have to acknowledge if they are to meet the epideictic purpose: To unite the audience around common values and create an enjoyable collective memory. The results show that most of the winners do so by multimodal activity where verbal and nonverbal communication work together to highlight values that are part of each winner’s persona as well as values that are celebrated within the music community as a whole.

    History, Identity, Trauma and Narratives in Toni Morrison's Beloved in relation to "Black Lives Matter" (BLM)2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study of African-American traumas in Toni Morrison's Beloved in relation to the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM). It attempts to explore those stances in the two modes of narrative that impede the justice and peace for African-Americans within particular historical and social contexts.

    Based on trauma theory by Cathy Caruth, the essay explains the physical and mental wound left by trauma. Instances from the novel have been analyzed to show how bodies are inscribed, literally and metaphorically, by the oppressor to enforce his identity on people of color. Those markers testify to the agonies of the past, contribute to the process of selfdiscovery and support the idea that the past is alive in the present. It was also significant to show the effect of the wound of the mind on individuals and communities. The mental wound, which comes later as a response to the violent events, is unhealable and unbearable. Therefore, the essay shows that there is no completed panacea for traumatized African- Americans who suffer the mental wound and lose their control over their present life. It has been one of the basic concerns of this study to underscore the role of trauma narratives in reconstructing (hi)story in order to attain self-discovery and reconstruct new realities, subjectivities and identities. Through Stuart Hall's argument, it was also important to assert that identity is not a static concept or a one dimensional question. It alters as history does and shifts as positions do.

    The study shows that although Beloved and BLM are two different modes of narrative, they have the same aim of depicting the mental and physical wounds of African-Americans in order to reveal the truth and affect their audience. It was also important to show that both Morrison and BLM assert the continuity of African-American traumas and systematic racism in the U.S. America. African-Americans remained the object of oppression, violence and racism after the Civil War and the Reconstruction Era and are even so today.

    Kvinnan, mannen & barnet: Hur modelläsaren i Ikeakatalogen konstrueras i förhållande till familjen som social praktik2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Analysen syftar till att studera hur Ikeakatalogens modelläsare konstrueras i förhållande till familjen som social praktik idag genom att studera hur diskursen har förändrats över tid. Nedan följer en diakron multimodal textanalys av fem svenska Ikeakataloger mellan 1973 och 2013. Analysen tar i första hand avstamp i ett sociolingvistiskt perspektiv med Hallidays systemisk-funktionella lingvistik, SFL, som grundverktyg men då analysunderlaget innehåller en stor del bilder finns även ett sociosemiotiskt perspektiv. Dessa inslag vilar på Kress och van Leeuwens applikation av SFL vad gäller tolkning av andra semiotiska artefakter än verbalt språk.

    Analysen visar att säljdiskursen har genomgått en betydande förändring under de senaste 40 åren. Sedan millennieskiftet marknadsförs inte längre inredning med argumenten kvalitet eller design. Diskursen 2013 beskriver istället livsstilskoncept och erbjuder modelläsaren möjlighet att stärka sitt personliga varumärke. Vilken familjemedlems behov som ska uppmärksammas eller tillfredställas skiftar över tid. Tilltalet har gått från ett textuellt och semiotiskt pluralt ni-tilltal, till ett nästan helt uteslutande textuellt singulärt du-tilltal. Även semiotiken visar på en utveckling mot individualisering. I de senare katalogerna realiseras parrelationen i första hand via inanimata objekt som kläder och skor och i mycket liten utsträckning via personer. Barnet däremot ges en allt mer framträdande roll över tid och i 2013 års katalog utgör barnets behov det främsta säljargumentet efter individens valfrihet. I samma katalog är det uteslutande mannen som realiseras som vårdgivare. Kvinnan som mamma har idag lägre status än tidigare. Däremot realiseras kvinnan utan barn med allt högre status. Detta och analysen av hur deltagarnas och produkternas placering har förändrats över tid tycks implicera att den prioriterade modelläsaren är kvinna, har barn och tillräckligt god ekonomi för att kunna lägga pengar på inredning. Hon måste dock i egenskap av mamma, förhålla sig till att övriga familjemedlemmar och kvinnor utan barn realiseras med högre status.

    Abstract [en]

    Few would disagree that the media landscape has undergone significant changes the last decade. From bulky computers and plain mobile phones to portable High-Definition computers and multi-functional smartphones. Other media, such as newspapers and music, have evolved and prospered in a digitalized environment. The constant urge to digitalize aspects and functions of our daily lives seems almost instinctive. Television has taken further steps into this environment as it is now accepted and featured via the Internet. This essay investigates in the ways the new platforms of television will affect the traditional one. More specifically, whether the Internet Streaming Media functions as an extension or as a replacement to the current form of television.  Furthermore, this essay explores age- and gender-related content-preferences in Streaming, as well as speculating on the subject of the consequences of Streaming consumption.  The method in acquiring the empirical data is through a quantitative one, in a survey.  The conclusions made are that the survey respondents, at this current time, are using Streaming as an extension to traditional TV, that there are, in some genres, significant gender-related content preferences when watching TV over the Internet (these include: Drama, reality and sports) and that there are age-related content preference when using Streaming; as the younger age-groups watch “entertainment-shows” more than the older age-groups but neither of the groups do so exclusively. When it then comes to the discussion concerning increased individualization it is, at this point in time, too early to speculate since the respondents mostly use Streaming as an extension to the traditional television.

    Labour Against Capitalism? Hegel’s Concept of Labour in Between Civil Society and the State2014In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 113-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concepts and phenomena of civil society, political economy and labour are ambivalent matters in Hegel’s political philosophy. They simultaneously contain productive and destructive potential in the realization of the political community. This article investigates Hegel’s concept of labour against the backdrop of his theory of civil society in order to bring forth the ambiguous role of labour in relation to the ’capitalism’ of civil society. According to Hegel, labour is both economically productive and the activity by which the society and its members can transcend the mere capitalistic dimensions of society. Labour can therefore simultaneously be understood as capitalistic and non-capitalistic in Hegel’s political philosophy. The cultivating dimensions of labour in Hegel’s theory offer a counterpart to the mere capitalistic forms of labour. Labour can therefore be used as a promising platform for the discussion of the relation between economy and culture and for the revitalization of capitalism critique.

    Hegelian Marxism: The Uses of Hegel’s Philosophy in Marxist Theory from Georg Lukács to Slavoj Žižek2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since Georg Lukács and Karl Korsch in the 1920s, Hegelian Marxism has played a prominent role as a radical intellectual tradition in modern political theory. This anthology investigates how these Hegelian Marxists, in different historical, political and intellectual contexts during the last century, have employed Hegel’s philosophy with the aim of developing and renewing Marxist theory.

    Besides Lukács and Korsch the volume includes articles dealing with the thoughts of Herbert Marcuse, Theodor W. Adorno, Walter Benjamin, Evald Ilyenkov, Lucio Colletti and Slavoj Žižek. The overall purpose is to investigate if, and the degree to which, these thinkers could be interpreted as Hegelian Marxists, and how they use the Hegelian philosophy to better understand their own current society as well as situate themselves in relation to orthodox forms of Marxism. Taken together, the articles can hopefully contribute to an intensification of discussions about the critical and self-criticalphilosophy of Marxism today.

    Anmälningspliktens skuggsida: en essä om att hantera orosanmälningar på förskolan i praktiken2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My essay starts by describing a case of a "declaration of concern" regarding a child that I experienced in my work at a preschool. The duty to make a notification was based on the child's story and led to a meeting at a crisis center. The meeting involved the presence of police, psychologists and prosecutors, without parental knowledge. I chose the essay form for this subject because this writing form offers a reflective approach which is suitable for such a sensitive topic. By describing the negative aspects associated with this duty of notification I want to try to bring some understanding of the very emotional issues associated with a notification. I will highlight what the notification requirement is about and examine what - my obligations are as a teacher in making a declaration of concern leading to a notification to the relevant local authorities and government agencies. I will reflect on the child's vulnerable position as well as the difficult position of parents and notifying teachers.

    The pervading idea in the essay is that the obligation to report your concern may seem like a hard law but a law that has to be followed without reservation. The teacher´s own opinion or judgment is irrelevant in a declaration of concern and subsequent notification. Registration of the concern is done for the child's sake and not the sake of the family.

    Friskolor med muslimsk profil: En studie om fyra rektorers tankar kring arbetet på en friskola med muslimsk profil2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Independent schools are a central issue in the school world, the perception of independent schools varies and many people express opinions about them in the media. An independent school is according to the National Agency a school that has a different principal than the county or municipality. Independent schools may not charge fees but their revenue comes from municipal grants from municipalities (Berglund 2007, p. 10). An independent school can be driven by an association, foundation or company and to run an independent school requires a permit from the Education Department.

    The purpose of this paper is to see how four principals at independent schools with a Muslim profile are working to strengthen their students’ Muslim identity in relation to the society they live in and how schools work with value issues. We also had the intention of studying the schools environment. To help us, we used the following questions: How does the school principal integrate different value issues? What are the principals’ thoughts on their schools work with their students before meeting with the community? What are the principals thoughts on the schools work to enhance their students’ Muslim identity? What is the purpose of the school profile? What is the environment like in and around the school? We have used interviews and observations as a method to find out how principals producing work at an independent school with a Muslim profile, and how they work with students’ identity formation. In this qualitative study, we have interviews with two principals and two assistant principals and observations from three of the schools. Based on our research, we have concluded that there is little to distinguish an independent school with a Muslim profile from a public school. Both are part of the Swedish school system, so they must follow the national curriculum, the time plan, and the Education Act.

    According to the principals that we interviewed, what distinguishes an independent school with a Muslim profile from a public school is that they serve halal food, girls and boys have separate PE lessons, they have one lesson a week for the school's profile subject (Islam or Arabic), schools have a prayer room that students can access throughout the school day and the school is closed during the Muslim feasts.

    According to the principals that we interviewed, the main reason for choosing an independent school with a Muslim profile should be because of the work in the schools that is based on building up students’ Muslim identity. They do this for the students meeting with the society they live in, if the schools have built up a solid cultural foundation of the students, the transition to the community much easier. In our social world is the view of knowledge, learning and parenting culture bound. Lahdenperä writes about "learning -through-culture" and with this she means that children learn through their own culture, that shapes them as individuals and through it they learn what is worth to know (Lahdenperä 2003). Our observations revealed various differences between the schools’; the most obvious difference was the religious texts and symbols that were on Sham School. Our observations also showed different connections between the schools’; one was that they were in abandoned buildings, mostly in industrial areas. Another clear connection between the schools was that all had prayer rooms and these floors were covered with a large red carpet. The prayer rooms looked exactly like they do in a mosque.

    The conclusion of our study is that despite the schools’ public profile, independent schools with Muslim profile, they educate their students in different ways and their priorities are also different. Thus, one can´t assume that all independent schools with Muslim profile works the same way. Just as in public schools, it is about what the staff at the schools believe that the schools purpose and also their efforts to achieve the schools different goals.

    A Case Study of a Distance Degree Program in Vietnam: Examples from a Learner-Centered Approach to Distance Education2013In: Cases on Professional Distance Education Degree Programs and Practices: Successes, Challenges, and Issues / [ed] Sullivan, Kirk; Peter E. Czigler; Jenny M. Sullivan Hellgren, Hershey, PA: IGI Global, 2013, p. 233-257Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The English Department at Högskolan Dalarna, Sweden, participates in a distance-learning program with the Faculty of Education at Vietnam National University. Students who enroll in this program are teachers of English at secondary or tertiary institutions, and will study half time for two years to complete a Master’s degree in English Linguistics. The distance program, adapted specifically to accommodate the Vietnamese students in terms of cultural differences as well as inexperience with distance methodology, is characterized by three design features: testing, technical training, and fostering a community of learners. The design of the courses also reflects a learner-centered approach that addresses common problem areas in distance education by promoting interactivity. Central to the overall program is the maintenance of different channels of communication, reflecting an effort to support the students academically and socially, both as individuals and members of a learning community. In this way, the effects of physical and cultural distances are minimized.
