Context-oriented subject representation : abstracting of fiction film intended for Internationella biblioteket (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to examine how a context-specific form of abstracting of fiction film developed in relation to the cultural policy of Internationella biblioteket IB, theoretically can be motivated and practically shaped. The background of the cultural policy of IB is analysed and theoretical standpoints and problematic aspects regarding subject representation discussed. Theories which claim intersubjectivity as an ideal for subject representation and searches for objectivity in the process of subject analysis are criticised in light of the concept of interpretation as the only means to produce meaning and subjects in relation to fiction. Birger Hjørlands context-oriented theories of subject representation are used to theoretically motivate the context-specific form of abstracting. To suggest how a practical framework for abstracting can be created, film theoretical models of interpretation are examined in relation to the field of subject analysis and formal criteria of abstracting. The conclusion argues for a form of abstracting that considers the informative potentials and the subjects of fiction film in relation to questions of national and cultural interest. One of the most prominent cultural aims of IB is to enable immigrants to access their cultural heritage. To highlight a film in relation to its national and cultural contexts, aspects of the film that would be of relevance to its cultural heritage and national origin should be emphasised.
