Religionsvetenskapliga tröskelbegrepp: stötestenar och språngbrädor vid utvecklingen av ett ämnesperspektiv

Abstract [en]

To master an academic discipline is challenging, and different scientific disciplines pose particular challenges to the novice, or beginner, that approach the subject. Threshold concepts has proven to be a pedagogically fruitful framework, related to the gradual mastering of a subject-specific perspective. The article introduces the framework, followed by an overview of how threshold concepts have been used in research of the field of religious education. Previous research has primarily been concerned with confessional RE. The discussion is broadened to a Swedish university context through empirical material (interview and survey) of students from History of Religion. It is argued that lived religion, world religion paradigm, emic/etic, and orthodoxy/orthopraxy could be threshold concepts in this context. As such, they could be considered as keys unlocking the academic subject of History of Religion. The education given might be improved by considering the threshold concepts in course planning and teaching.

Abstract [sv]

Att behärska en vetenskaplig disciplin är utmanande, och olika vetenskapliga discipliner har sina säregna utmaningar för noviser, eller nybörjare som närmare sig ämnet. Tröskelbegrepp (eng: threshold concepts) har visat sig vara pedagogiskt fruktbara begrepp, relaterat till just det gradvisa erövrandet av ett ämnesperspektiv. Teorin introduceras, följt av en kort översikt av användning inom området religionsundervisning (religious education). Tidigare forskning har framför allt behandlat konfessionell religionsundervisning. Med hjälp av empiriskt material (intervju och enkät) från studenter inom religionsvetenskap förankras den allmänna diskussionen till ett svenskt högskolesammanhang i en argumentation för att levd religion, världsreligionparadigmet, emic/etic, samt ortodoxi/ortopraxi kan vara tröskelbegrepp inom religionsvetenskap i Sverige. Dessa kan ses som nycklar in i det vetenskapliga ämnet religionsvetenskap, och genom att nyttja tröskelbegreppen vid planering av kurser kan undervisningen förbättras.
