    Identitet och verksamhet: Hjulbärande gudinnor och attribut i mellaneuropeisk järnåldersikonografi2015In: Chaos. Dansk-norsk tidsskrift for religionhistoriske studier, ISSN 0108-4453, E-ISSN 1901-9106, Vol. 64, no 2, 53-76 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the difference between identifying and classifying attributes and analyzes the problematic implications if we confuse the two. The empirical material consists of Gallic stone reliefs depicting goddesses with a wheel as attribute. Male deities depicted with wheels have mainly been identified as a Celtic Jupiter or a male sky god sometimes called Taranis. The Gallic goddesses show that the wheel attribute was not an identifying attribute exclusive to this god, but that it rather served as a marker for an activity shared by several deities, both male and female. The articles argument that we need to distinguish between identifying and classifying attributes in order to make a source critical and methodological correct iconographical interpretation, especially when we interpret iconographical representation without the aid of any written sources.

    Names of swords in Icelandic sagas2017In: EASR Annual Conference : Communicating Religion: University of Leuven 18-21 September 2017, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Named weapons of different origin and purpose occur in the Old Norse mythology, and some of them are better known than others: Thor's hammer Mjolnir and Odin's spear Gungnir, just to name a few. But named weapons are also present in the more mundane Icelandic sagas, and it suggests that the practice of giving individual names to objects was something that occurred among real people in the Viking society. The named swords, spears and axes, which we can read about in the Icelandic sagas, are not portrayed as especially supernatural. They are, however, sometimes talked about in a special way and considered to be extraordinary in one way or another.What kind of name did people give to weapons, and what might have been the purposes for doing so? It is possible that some weapons told a story through their names and that they because of that also brought fame and glory to their owners. It is also conceivable, considered how some of the swords and spears are described in the Icelandic sagas, that named weapons were seen as almost life-like. This paper discusses some thoughts regarding named weapons in the sagas, the purposes for giving names, and if this practise might tell us something about how people in the Viking age viewed these named, possibly presumed life-like, objects.

    "Att tända gnistan och få den att flamma upp": Samverkan mellan lärare och skolbibliotekarier på låg-och mellanstadiet2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this bachelor thesis is to examine the collaboration between school librarians and teachers in primary school, in order to illustrate how the two professions can work together, how they see their own roles and how they look at the other professionals´ roles. We also discuss earlier studies in LIS concerning collaboration between teachers and librarians. The method of investigation is qualitative interviews with practicing school librarians and teachers, we interviewed three school librarians and three teachers from three different schools in the same county.  As a basis of the discussion and analysis Andrew Abbott's theory of professions is used. The thesis shows that collaboration differs between the schools. The difference in itself depends on the schools principal views of the school library. The professions need to develop their understanding for each other´s roles and competences in order to develop the best possible collaboration.

    För kunskap och kultur: En studie om folkbibliotekariers inköpsstrategier av utländsk litteratur2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis’ purpose is to investigate how purchase librarians work with foreign language collection management. Since about 15% of the citizens of Sweden are born abroad or have a foreign background, the subject of investigation becomes relevant because it touches a wide user group of the public library.

    Interviews were conducted with four librarians responsible for purchasing of foreign literature. The purpose of these interviews was to investigate which underlying strategies and thoughts are used as a basis for purchasing.

    Since the library act does not include guidelines regarding the content of the foreign literature collection, how is the literature chosen and to what purpose?

    As a theoretical framework a self-developed model was used to categorize the foreign literature into its different functions. The foreign literature was divided into two main categories; entertainment reading and literature with an informative purpose.

    To display the librarians room for interpretation factor in the purchasing of literature a theory from sociology studies was applied, the theory of room for maneuver.

    The findings in this paper have revealed that literature with the purpose to entertain was prioritized in the purchasing. Even though the libraries included multicultural activities in their organization, by prioritizing the entertainment literature the library tended to deprioritize the potential integration purpose of the literature.

    The paper also revealed that the individual responsible for the purchasing was left with a large room for interpretation, which meant that one individual had the responsibility to ensure that the literature was relevant and versatile enough for the user group.

    Bland boktips och länksamlingar: En undersökning av de svenska folkbibliotekens webbplatser för ungdomar2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The public libraries were quick to adapt to the changes that the Internet brought on, and today library websites are an important part of the public library. To meet the needs of teens today, the library website could offer a range of contents to make it an attractive place on many levels; both the academic needs as well as social and recreational needs should be addressed.

    The aim of this thesis is to evaluate public library websites for teenagers in Sweden, and to examine how well the websites address the developmental tasks and needs that teenagers have. The method used is website evaluation, one quantitative and one qualitative. A total of 60 public library sites for teenagers were evaluated, using 11 criteria based on Havighursts developmental tasks. The quantitative evaluation measured how many functions each website had per criteria, and showed that the majority of the sites had one or two functions for most of the criteria. The qualitative evaluation showed that the websites with the highest score often offered more interactive solutions, had more dynamic content and therefore met the needs of teenagers better than the websites with a lower ranking. Overall, the public library websites for teenagers could gain from developing their content and services further, taking into consideration the needs and developmental tasks that teenagers have that separates them from other user groups.

    Abstract [en]

    Today, one of the foremost tools used by the library staff is the library catalogue search tools. It has come to our understanding that some library staff are dissatisfied with how the search tools works. The aim of this study is to illuminate the library staff's negative experiences of the search tools, and to present a basis for future discussion and development. To our help we have used a quantitative survey which were sent to library staff that used one of the two largest integrated library systems in Sweden, BOOK-IT and Mikromarc. The questions regarded the library staff's perception of a number of features in the search tools. The results showed that in general, the overall impression of the catalogue search tools were positive, even though dissatisfaction with specific features could be observed, e.g. the system's way of handling misspellings and the ability to search the catalogue when the system is offline. This study can be seen as a small step on the way to better search tools in the library catalogue, giving the library staff better and more effective ways of providing service to the library users.

    ‘We’re all Avengers now’: Community-building, civil religion and nominal multiculturalism in Marvel Comics’ Fear Itself2016In: European Journal of American Culture, ISSN 1466-0407, E-ISSN 1758-9118, Vol. 35, no 2, 77-95 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses Marvel Comics’ 2011 crossover ‘event’ ‘Fear Itself’. It suggests that the event argues for national unity in a time of crisis by mobilizing America’s self-definition as a multicultural nation as well as civil religion. The article discusses ‘Fear Itself’s’ attempted construction of national myth through looking at the way it represents the media, US multiculturalism (in a generalized form that nominally includes non-white groups while frequently failing to account for them) and ‘sacralized’ civil religious aspects of US history. Especially salient in this connection is the event’s engagement with the Roosevelt years. In doing so, it is argued, ‘Fear Itself’ presents an Americanness that relies on an idealized and nostalgic notion of the so-called ‘Greatest Generation’, a tightly knit, self-sacrificing civil society that supposedly came into being during that period.

    Tallgårdens minibibliotek: En fallstudie av ett bibliotek i mångspråksområde2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis examines at how libraries can function as meeting places in areas with inhabitants from sevral different countries. It is done in the form of a case study, with interviews and observations, of a minilibrary in a part of Växjö. The results are analysed with the help of Ragnar Audunsons theory about high and low intensity meeting places. According to the theory a high intensity meeting place is where a person meets people who share their intrests, whereas a low intensity meeting place is where the person are exposed to diffrent views. This study finds that the minilibrary in question funtions as both a high and a low intensity meeting place, depending on the context. When the children and youth living in the area use it as a place to meet after school, the library functions as a high intensity meeting place, and when the library hosts language cafés it becomes a low intensity meeting place.

    Wilde – Mannen som föll offer för den hegemoniska maskuliniteten: En begreppshistorisk analys av fem författares framställning av Wildes homosexualitet 2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study has been to examine six books about Oscar Wilde’s homosexuality during the years 1906 – 2003. I have been analyzing their descriptions about his sexual orientation and compared them to each other to see the changes through time. In order to see some clear changes the main focus was to choose time differences between the books. It was clear that the earlier writers had negative opinions and thoughts about his sexual deviation the way they described it. The writers from the older books focus on Oscar Wilde’s achievements more than his sexual orientation. The analysis was made through two theories, Michel Foucault’s theories about sexuality, power and knowledge, and the second Raewyn Connell’s theory about hegemonic masculinity. The theories have been fundamental for this study on the basis of the changes through time and how societies viewed masculinity and sexual orientations. They have also been important for the descriptions of Oscar Wilde’s feminine attitude and his addiction to his looks. My method for the essay has been a conceptual analysis. The choice of this method was not hard because it has been important to the comparison and the analysis for the writers’ usage of word descriptions of Oscar Wilde’s homosexuality. The results showed a large amount of resemblances and differences between the books, which can be seen against the background of the society and its view on homosexuality.

    Är homosexualitet legitimt inom islam?: En argumentationsanalys av nytolkningar och traditionella rättstolkningar inom islam2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine new interpretations of homosexuality in Islam based on Scott Kugle’s book “Homosexuality in Islam” and the documentary “A Jihad for love” by Parvez Sharma. Through a theological perspective, a critical analysis is performed in order to find new interpretations and compare them with each other and with the Islamic legal tradition. Argumentative analysis is also used for both the book and the documentary for this essay.     Both Kugle and Sharma use new interpretations and arguments about love to find space for homosexuality in Islam. They use a Muslim language to have relevance with their discussions to Muslim readers and viewers. It is obvious that Sharma is aware of the scenes and arguments he chose to show in the documentary. Kugle focuses on unclear verses in the Qur’an, which contribute to that he could find possibilities to interpret homosexuals in the verses to fulfill his purpose and open up a topic for discussion. Their discussion show what Muslim homosexuals have to struggle with and with their new interpretations they both discover ways to find reconciliation between Islam and people’s sexual orientation by questioning the normative society.

    Contact and contrast: the subject of history and its relation to students 1905-20052014In: International Journal of Historical Learning, Teaching and Research, ISSN 1472-9466, Vol. 12, no 2, 46-63 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At a first glance at curricula, syllabi and textbooks, history teaching and its content in schools appear to be fairly unchanged over a long period of time. Selected subject matter, concentrated on political and social processes, war, peace, progress, and the objective to clarify changes, is in many respects the same. There are however aspects of history’s presentation that are seldom described or analyzed. One such aspect is how the relationship between the past and the student is approached. Connections between the past and the student in present time have the potential to make sense and meaning, and likely increase understanding of the past and of the student and society as interwoven in time.

    The study is based on a comparison between Swedish history textbooks and curricula during the period 1905 to 2005. Textbook characteristics sometimes do not have their counterpart in the curricula and syllabi. The consistencies and discrepancies that exist during the different time periods provide nuances for the picture of how curricula and syllabi intentions were realized and expressed

    Ethical Values and History: a mutual relationship?2013In: International Journal of Historical Learning, Teaching and Research, ISSN 1472-9466, Vol. 12, no 1, 5-15 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last two decades, ethical values in the form of reconciling with the past and recognizing victimized groups in history, have become more common themes in history books and in history teaching, like a ‘moral turn’ in the writing of history. History didactics research points out that values issues and moral questions clarify issues and contexts, stimulating thinking over time and activating people’s historical consciousness. Previous research, however, often only states that there is a relationship. In this article, I describe and analyze on empirical grounds, first how values are approached, and have been approached, in Swedish history textbooks, and how history and values relate to each other. Thereafter, I describe how 15-year-old students in Sweden express the relationship between values and history. Central to the analysis is how the historical context can clarify values and at the same time, how values can function as an interface creating meaning and bringing together knowledge between the past, the present and the future.

    Förväntningar och förekomst: Elevers förväntningar och läromedlens urval och presentation av kalla kriget-epoken2017In: NHM-2017, 29: Nordiska historikermøde, 2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Elever möter historia i en rad olika sammanhang; i media, i spel, i reklam, i filmer och i historiska faktaprogram på TV för att nämna några. Elevernas uppfattningar och kunskaper har därför sannolikt formats redan innan de möter skolans undervisning och därefter formas de som en parallell process. I skolans historieundervisning spelar läromedlen fortfarande en viktig roll. De används i olika utsträckning och på olika sätt, men de finns ändå där som en konstant. En intressant spänning kan därför uppstå mellan elevernas förkunskaper, deras förväntningar och den bild av det förflutna de möter i skolan. I denna presentation tar jag det inom historiedidaktiken tidigare svagt beforskade begreppet förväntning eller förväntan som utgångspunkt. Jag studerar vilka förväntningar eleverna har på, och vad de menar är viktigt och vad de vill lära sig om, en historisk epok som de ännu inte har studerat i skolan – kalla kriget. Elevernas förväntningar jämförs med läromedlens urval och beskrivning av epoken. Studien bygger på gruppintervjuer med svenska elever i årskurs 8 och en analys av historieläroböcker för årskurs 9. Resultaten diskuteras i ljuset av syften och innehållsbeskrivningen i den kursplan i historia som infördes i Sverige från 2011.

    Abstract [en]

    What do you know when you know something about history? What is important to know and how do you learn? Adolescents encounter history everywhere: at school, in the family, in media and society. But how do adolescents perceive history and in what ways do aspects of meaning and ethical values affect the encounters with history? This study discusses how Swedish adolescents and teachers encounter, communicate and define knowledge about history, analysing the process from curricula and history textbooks to the world of the pupils.

    Abstract [en]

    To travel in time can be described as an encounter between now and then. The time traveller experiences a constructed past interpreted in present time. At the same time the time traveller could use the past as a mirror to learn something about herself. These multidimensional relations between the past and the present could be perceived and interpreted in a variety of ways. In this presentation I will discuss a typology to chategorize and analyze time travellers’ perceptions of the past.

    On Genocide and the Holocaust in Swedish History Teaching2015In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 2, no 1, 58-69 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching about the Holocaust and other genocides is emphasized in Swedish History teaching. In Sweden there is a public authority commisioned to work with issues related to tolerance, democracy and human rights. It is this context and under these conditions, that Swedish History teachers select a variety of topics for their students to learn, as part of the History curriculum. In addition to the Holocaust, they teach about crimes against humanity committed under communist regimes, the genocide of Tutsies in Rwanda, and mass murder and ethnic cleansing in former Yugoslavia. Teachers use a multiplicity of uses of history and teaching methods. They conduct a scientific use of history when focusing on the historical contexts and explaining the background, motives and consequences of genocide. Teachers also stress the students’ personal reflections and standpoints in a moral use of history. The teaching aims at developing understanding and empathy among students.

    Patterns of reasoning: A tentative model to analyse historical and moral consciousness among 9th grade students2017In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 4, no 1, 23-35 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Students find ethical and moral issues central and interesting when they interpret history. History can offer explanations and references to moral values that are still valid - or not valid - in our time. At the same time moral values provide conceivable contexts that connect students to the past. Views on interrelations between the past and the present seem to interact with the students' moral foundations, questions, interpretations, understanding or repudiation.

    Patterns of reasoning: A tentative model to analyse historical and moral consciousness among Swedish 9th grade students2015In: Book of Abstracts: NoFa5 Nordic Conference on Subject Education, 27-29 May 2015, University of Helsinki , 2015, 94-94 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Students find ethical and moral issues central and interesting when they interpret history. History can offer explanations and references to moral values that are still valid – or not valid – in our time. At the same time moral values provide conceivable contexts that connect students to the past. Views on interrelations between the past and the present seem to interact with the students’ moral foundations, questions, interpretations, understanding or repudiation. On a societal level similar phenomena can be identified when groups of people turn to history, either to handle challenges or to apologize or heal wrongs of the past. Furthermore the National Curricula prescribe ethical dimensions in school education, not least for the subject of history.

    In this pilot study Swedish 9th grade students discuss a text from Christopher Brownings’ book Ordinary Men. The students’ answers are analysed in a theoretical model including different types of historical consciousness and different aspects of moral reasoning. The aim is to study if there are patterns of interrelations and, if so, how these patterns are manifested.

    What do you know when you know something about history?2014In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 1, no 1, 50-61 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What does it mean to know something about history? If you know “your” history, what is it that you know? For many, it is definitely about being able to provide dates, to state what happened or how people lived in the past; while for others it means being able to conduct genealogical research or being able to navigate in a video game that takes place in an historical environment. In a school context, the issue of knowledge is always central. Pupils and teachers meet in, around and through knowledge, and moreover, knowledge is assessed daily. This article addresses how pupils in the last years of the nine-year period of Swedish compulsory schooling regard knowledge about history. The aim is to investigate how Swedish 15 years old pupils in Grade 9 describe knowledge about history, as well as what type of knowledge about history pupils appear to hold.

    Bridging historical consciousness and moral consciousness: Promises and challenges2017In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 4, no 1, 1-13 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This special issue is the result of the workshop, Towards an integrated theory of historical and moral consciousness, supported by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences) and Suomen kasvatuksen ja koulutuksen historian seura (The Finnish Society for the History of Education) and held at the University of Helsinki, in 2015. History teaching and social studies education are increasingly expected to develop, among other things, students’ historical consciousness. This goal is highly relevant for students’ ability to deal constructively with controversial issues of history which is an important civic competence in the situation where in many societies’ political arguments concerning, for example, citizenship rights, ethnic and cultural diversity, and democracy are only too often fuelled by simplistic narratives of historical change and continuity. However, there is a blank spot in the existing research on historical consciousness in that intersections between historical and moral consciousness remain very much unexplored. This special issue seeks to identify promising theoretical and conceptual points of convergence for future interdisciplinary studies of historical and moral consciousness. Contributors are from the fields of history, educational research, social psychology, and philosophy.

    To Make and to Experience Meaning: How Time Travels are Perceived among Participants2017In: The Archaeology of Time Travel: Experiencing the Past in the 21st Century / [ed] Bodil Petersson, Cornelius Holtorf, Oxford: Archaeopress, 2017, 113-128 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Time travels provide the opportunity for participants to make an imaginary trip back in time to learn about places, times and events, and to learn about themselves. To travel in time can be described as an encounter between the past and the present. Such an experience encourages participants to relate the present to the past and to reflect upon their own lives as they interact with another time. In that way one can replace an ‘us and them’ attitude with an approach that unites people and highlights what they have in common. This type of encounter carries the potential for meaning- making. Merging the ‘now and then’ with ‘similar and different’ can make it possible to understand one’s own place in – and relation to – history. But how do participants perceive time travels, what do they learn, what is their view of the past, the present, the future, themselves and the other? In the participator’s reflections we have identified how they perceive different narratives with potential for meaning-making.

    I farmors kök blev jag människa: historiedidaktiska texter av K G Jan Gustafson2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    K   G Jan Gustafson, 1933–2011, var historiker, historielärare och lärarutbildare. Han undervisade i gymnasieskolan, på fångvårdsanstalt och under de sista 30 åren av sin lärargärning inom lärarutbildningen vid Lärarhögskolan, sedermera Högskolan i Kalmar. Gustafsons undervisning kännetecknades av den starka berättelsen och de levandegjorda, men systematiskt granskade, källorna. Han betonade vikten av att vårda relationen mellan människa och historia och att inte för ett ögonblick vackla i försvaret av dess betydelse. Gustafson var en av den svenska historiedidaktikens pionjärer med sin forskning om barns och ungdomars relation till historien. Särskilt uppmärksammade är hans longitudinella studier av såväl ungdomars, som deras föräldrars, historiemedvetande och hur det kan förändras över tid. Denna bok återger Gustafsons historiedidaktiska texter. Han tar läsaren med på en vitter, poetisk, oväntad, hisnande och frispråkig resa. Boken vänder sig till lärare, lärarstuderande och forskare med intresse för historiedidaktik och livsfrågor samt andra intresserade.

    Working with the Cold War: Types of Knowledge in Swedish and Australian History textbook Activities2016In: Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, ISSN 2041-6938, E-ISSN 2041-6946, Vol. 8, no 2, 58-82 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a comparative analysis of pupils’ activities dealing with the Cold War in Swedish and Australian history textbooks. By focusing on text- book activities to which pupils respond in relation to their learning of a particular topic, this study identifies knowledge types included in a selection of history text- books. The study also focuses on the question whether, and if so how, social values are evident in activities concerning the Cold War. The authors develop a matrix that makes it possible to examine knowledge types and social values conveyed by ac- tivities. By analyzing textbook activities, this article exposes the hidden curriculum present in the textbooks on the basis of underlying and unstated values present in the activities, and at the same time identifies the way in which the selected text- books incorporate these values.

    Busstrafikens satsning för en hållbar miljö: En fallstudie över Växjös busstrafik2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bilismens utbredning står idag för en ohållbar samhällsutveckling på både lokal-, regional- och global nivå. IPCC:s senaste rapport konstaterar att människans otvetydigt har en betydande roll i uppvärmningen av klimatsystemet och att det framförallt är utsläppen av växthusgasen koldioxid som är problemet. 

    Transportsektorn står idag för nästan en femtedel av människans totala koldioxidutsläpp. För att reducera andelen koldioxidutsläpp i atmosfären och andra miljöproblem inom transportsektorn är således kollektivtrafiken ett viktigt redskap.

    Under 1950- och 1960-talet omvandlades Sverige till ett bilsamhälle. Privatbilen fulländade efterkrigstidens välfärdsbygge och bilen sågs som en självklart och positiv del i det nya välfärdsamhället. Antalet personbilar ökade lavinartat i Sverige och utveckling gick rakt uppåt från ett par hundra tusen fordon på 1950-talet till fyra miljoner fordon år 2000. I början var det framförallt nöjesresor som bilen användes till men efter några år utvecklades fenomenet bilpendling.

    Människor kunde nu söka arbete längre ifrån sina bostäder utan att behöva flytta, de kunde bilpendla istället. Bilen blev allt mer integrerad i samhället och samhällsbyggandet anpassades nu till de rörelsemönster som privatbilismen möjliggjorde. Bilen bidrog till att bostadsbebyggelse spreds och att städernas mer centrala bostadsområden glesades ut samtidigt som service och andra verksamheter spreds ut i periferin. Samhällsutvecklingen bidrog till att bilen blev en nödvändighet för många människor vilket medförde att passagerarunderlaget för kollektivtrafiken urholkades. Idag finns det över en miljard trafikdugliga bilar i världen vilket inte faller inom ramen för en hållbar utveckling.

    Till år 2050 har EU som mål att minska koldioxidutsläppen inom transportsektorn med 60 procent (Rye & Schultz, 2013). Det innebär krav på en kraftig omställning till fossilfria transporter och en kraftig överflyttning från biltrafik till kollektivtrafik (eller gång- och cykeltrafik). En stad som jobbat intensifierat med att reducera utsläppen inom transportsektorn är Växjö som 2013 den 2 september genomförde stadens största satsning någonsin på busstrafiken. Syfte med handlingen var att stärka busstrafikens marknadsandel i Växjös transp

    Kommunens kraftiga och lokalt omtalade satsning föranledde mig att använda staden Växjö och busstrafiken som fallstudie för uppsatsen. Syftet med uppsatsen var att analysera busstrafikens attraktionskraft i Växjö genom att jämföra de faktorer som styr invånarnas val av färdsätt med Växjös nya busstransportsystem.

    För att utreda uppsatsens frågeställningar genomfördes en enkätundersökning vid Grand Samarkand och en vid Växjö resecentrum med sammantaget 50 respondenter. Syftet med enkätundersökningen var att utreda vilka faktorer som styrde Växjöbornas val av färdsätt. Vidare genomfördes en observationsundersökning vars syfte var att utreda i vilken utsträckning Växjös nya busstransportsystem förhöll sig till dessa faktorer.

    Undersökningen visade att Växjös busstrafiksystem till viss del stod i relation till invånarnas behov men att det fortfarande fanns mycket arbete kvar för att det skulle kunna bli det kraftfulla verktyg som krävs för de långsiktiga miljömålen. Undersökningen visade framförallt att prisfaktorn och möjligheterna till att transportera varor och utrustning var faktorer som måste utvecklas för att busstrafiken skall kunna öka sin attraktionskraft ytterligare i staden.

    Abstract [en]

    Focusing on contacts and influences between Scandinavia and the Roman Empire during Roman Iron Age and Migration Period, the essay aims to present a way to divide those contacts into different sets of levels. Looking into the archaeological material of four Scandinavian places with rich contexts of Roman objects, the central settlement complexes of Uppåkra and Gudme and the graves of Öremölla and Hoby, the object is to try to classify certain objects into certain levels of connections to the Roman Empire. The contacts will be sorted out in levels from “regular” of less importance contacts to individual contacts where an involvement of a deeper perspective for the Scandinavian society can be identified.

    En öländsk historia: Fornborgar och övriga delar av södra och mellersta Ölands järnålderssamhälle2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is focused on Öland during the Iron Age, with focus specifically on the Roman Iron Age and the Migration period. The study takes its starting point in the large number of fortifications that was active across Öland at the time. The essays main area of investigation will be the central and southern parts of Öland as the fortifications, together with other parts of the Iron Age society around them such as graves and settlement, will be presented. The landscape in which the fortifications and their surroundings are placed will also be described. With the Migration Period being a keyword for almost all the fortifications on Öland, the subject will also be to describe if any sort of change can be seen in the settlement patterns during this unstable and troubled time. This will all be presented trough sources describing work of the archaeological investigations that has been done in those places.
