    Benchlearning as professional development of school leaders in Norway and Sweden2017Inngår i: Professional Development in Education, ISSN 1941-5257, E-ISSN 1941-5265, 1-14 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we investigate a new national collaborative Benchlearning program for principals in Norway and Sweden. Four process leaders have been running the program. The aim is to give the participants the knowledge to develop a leadership practice and school environment that are more innovative. The program includes theoretical inputs, sharing experiences, school visits, training, and trialing of new leadership practices. Drawing on data from surveys, participants’ reflections, and the leaders’ descriptions of new leadership practice, we examine and identify successful and critical aspects of the learning process. The findings show that principals’ motivation and willingness to start change processes can be created in a synergy between structured school visits, work in learning groups, and a theoretical foundation. Working in groups across schools in two countries seems to enhance principals’ sense of efficacy, which in turn is shown to have a positive effect on their willingness to trial new practices. Two implications of the study are suggested. First, in the design of principal programs, systematic and critical reflection about authentic practice should be the basis. Second, educators should be trained to be process leaders who can support principals’ learning during a critical and social construction of a new practice.

    Velayat park: En plats för gränsöverskridande möten mellan människor med olika socioekonomisk status2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Tehran, the capital of Iran has undergone major urbanization in the last century, which has caused uncontrollable urban growth. Poor regulation and control of this growth has given rise to environmental problems including high air and water pollution. In turn, this has led to urban growth towards the mountains in the north, where the environment is better. However, this pressure to develop in the north has increased segregation of the city and created a clear social division of class between the northern and southern parts of the City.

    In light of this, and in the context of Tehran as an extremely dense city with limited green space, the City sees a possibility in transforming an unused military airport in the southern districts of the city into a new urban park.

    This master thesis explores how to reclaim the 270Ha former airfield and develop it as an urban park with strengthened links to surrounding neighbourhoods.

    The work aims to gain an understanding of how large vacant areas can become successful public areas and green places in the community. The work is based on urban theory and site analysis and brings forward design proposals for the park.

    Analysis work is divided into an investigative and exploratory stage. The investigative part includes literature studies, data collection and mapping of the city’s urban morphological development, taking into account physical and socio-economic processes. The exploratory part consisted of inventories, site studies and interviews in Tehran, as well as integration analysis with space syntax to explore accessibility and connections in the new park.

    Throughout the study shows how and why the city has evolved and highlights a connection between living in the southern districts, which are low-income areas, with also having poor access to public and recreation areas.

    This analysis forms the foundations for the design proposal, visualizations and programs presented about how the area can be designed as a new urban city park.

    In conclusion, the study highlights that in order to be able to develop new places or renew existing area’s, consideration must be given to urban morphological development. This includes the socio-economic and socio-ecological process. It further concludes, that a ecological viewpoint together with a understanding of the physical environment, the urban landscape identity and the need of people in the context needs to be brought together to plan and create parks and urban spaces

    Att motivera till läsning: En studie utifrån fem grundskollärares perspektiv2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]


    This study examines the approaches used by teachers to motivate their pupils to read and investigates what underlying factors they claim may explain why pupils feel no motivation to read. The study was conducted from the perspective of five active teachers, with data collection by interview. The study found that the interviewed teachers use psychological support as well as structured teaching such as reading aloud and book talks, along with a varied range of methods, to motivate their pupils to read. The interviewed teachers state that there must be motivation if a pupil is to become a good reader, and it is very important that pupils receive support from adults, both at home and in school. According to the teachers, pupils lose motivation if they are given texts that are too difficult for them to understand, or if other stimuli motivate them more than reading does. The attitude of parents or guardians to reading is also emphasized as significant for motivation, and hence for pupils’ reading development.

    Konsten att påverka elever genom motivation: En studie om yttre och inre motivationens användande2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study is to examine which strategies do elementary school teachers use to motivate their students to read, and what strategies do teachers and students consider to be the most effective: Internal or external motivation. The methods for collecting data have been observations, interviews and webpages, and thud the study contains both quantitative and qualitative elements. The result of the current study showed that teachers used both inner and outer motivations to motivate students with intention of adapting teaching to the students' needs and conditions as mentioned in the curriculum.The results also displayed that students are motivated by both external and internal motivation, for example, inner motivation was created when students experienced responsibility for their learning, while external motivation was when students learning involved reward and assessment.

    The Perceptual Weight of Word Stress, Quantity and Tonal Word Accent in Swedish2017Inngår i: Phonology in Protolanguage and Interlanguage / [ed] Elena Babatsouli and David Ingram, Equinox Publishing, 2017, 316-341 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    When teaching the pronunciation of an additional language, the teacher should know which properties to give high priority and which to give lower priority. The present study aims at ranking the perceptual weight among the three phonemic prosodic contrasts of Swedish, namely word stress, quantity and tonal word accent. In two experiments, native Swedish subjects were presented with several disyllabic sequences; intact words, nonsense words and words that were distorted with respect to the three prosodic contrasts. The distorted words were not members of minimal pairs. In addition to intact words and non-word distractors, subjects heard originally trochaic words pronounced with iambic stress pattern and vice versa, originally /VːC/ words pronounced as /VCː/ and originally accent I words pronounced with accent II and vice versa. Listeners should decide whether the words were real words or not. The result shows that words with changed word accent category were rather easy to identify, words with changed stress pattern harder to identify, and changed quantity category caused most problems.

    Läsning av faktatexter i grundskolans tidigare år: En kvalitativ studie om grundskollärare och deras sätt att arbeta med förståelse av faktatexter med sina elever2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats syftar till att undersöka hur några lärare idag arbetar med faktatexter medelever i tidiga åldrar. Genom tidigare forskning undersöker jag hur fyra grundskollärarearbetar med läsning och förståelse av faktatexter. I denna studie studerar jag i vilkasammanhang lärarna arbetar med faktatexter och när de väljer att introducera det för eleverna.Jag undersöker också vilka lässtrategier och modeller lärarna använder sig av vid läsning avfaktatext med eleverna. Jag har använt mig av intervjuer som metod och samlat in ochanalyserat det material som är relevant och användbart för denna studie. De fyra informantersom valdes till undersökningen skulle vara verksamma lärare samt ha arbetat med yrket iminst tio år för att få en bredd i deras erfarenheter. De arbetar också på två olika skolor. Minstudie visar att för informanterna är faktatexter en viktig del i undervisningen men det finns enskillnad mellan skolorna. En skola arbetar kontinuerligt med ett genremål och har en störremedvetenhet gällande läsning av faktatexter än vad den andra skolan har.

    Flood hazard and its impact on the resilience of cities: An accessibility-based approach to amenities in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden2017Inngår i: Proceedings - 11th International Space Syntax Symposium, SSS 2017, Instituto Superior Tecnico, Departamento de Engenharia Civil, Arquitetura e Georrecursos , 2017, 36.1-36.15 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the wake of climate change and its impact on increasing the number and intensity of floods, adaptability of cities to and resistance against the flood hazard is critical to retain functionality of the cities. Vulnerability of urban infrastructure and its resilience to flooding from different points of view have been important and worth investigating for experts in different fields of science. Flood hazards as physical phenomena are influenced by form of the cities and thus the magnitude of their impacts can be intensified by urban infrastructures such as street networks and buildings (Bacchin et. al, 2011). In this paper, we aim to develop a method to assess the resilience of a river city (the city of Gothenburg in Sweden), which is prone to flood events, against such disturbances and find out how the city reacts to river floods and to what extent the city retains its accessibility to essential amenities after a flood occurs. To do so, collecting required data; we, firstly, simulate flood inundation with two different return periods (50 and 1000 years) and then the impact areas overlay on the street networks. Evaluating the resilience of the city, syntactic properties of the street networks before and after flooding are measured at different scales. Additionally, accessibility and the minimum distance of the street networks to essential amenities such as healthcare centers, schools and commercial centers, at a medium distance (3 Km) is examined. The results show that flooding influences the city configuration at global scale more than the local scale based on comparison of syntactic properties before and after flooding. However, the results of accessibility and the minimum distance show that the impact of flooding on the functionality of the city is more limited to the riparian areas and the city is not affected globally.

    Birgitta and Bernard: Two Saints and Five Old Swedish Fragments in the Danish National Archives2017Inngår i: European Journal of Scandinavian Studies, ISSN 2191-9399, E-ISSN 2191-9402, Vol. 47, nr 2, 263-290 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Danish National Archives in Copenhagen houses several thousand manuscript fragments, the remains of numerous works that were cut up and used in the bindings of later books. The majority of these fragments are written in Latin, Middle Low German, or Danish, although a few in Old Swedish also survive. Five of these Old Swedish fragments are published and discussed in this article. They contain parts of two of St Birgitta’s Revelations (Liber Caelestis and Revelationes Extravagantes) and of St Bernard’s A Rule of Good Life (Ad sororem modus bene vivendi in christianam religionem). The Birgittine texts are from an early stage of the retranslation process when compared to other extant versions and include several unique wordings that demonstrate the specific use of the original manuscript in a monastic environment. The Bernard fragments are one of just two extant versions and may predate the version in Stockholm, Royal Library, A 9; as such, they are an important witness to the propagation of the saint’s writings in Sweden.

    Muhammad’s Miracles: Science, Faith, and the Prophet’s Tricks in Medieval East Norse Texts2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I talk about the lives of the Prophet Muhammad found in vernacular saints’ lives (Old Swedish Legendary), devotional works (Consolation of the Soul), and travel descriptions (John Mandeville) from fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Denmark and Sweden. The paper focuses on stories about how Muhammad deceived people into believing that he was a Prophet using tricks, natural phenomena, and his alleged medical condition: trained animals to appear to worship him, used magnets to create a floating coffin, and epilepsy to give the impression of divine ecstasy.

    These lives of Muhammad are adaptations of works in Latin and German, while their presentation of Muhammad as a false prophet is traceable to Byzantine polemical authors, such as John of Damascus. The East Norse portrayal of Muhammad as a trickster owes a debt of gratitude to Gautier de Compiègne’s Otia de Machometi (before 1150). However, rather than the East Norse lives of Muhammad being free-standing works, they are found as integrated sections in collections of devotional and didactic works aimed at teaching and nurturing Christian piety in their readers. This is perhaps an unexpected textual context: why, for example, would a false Prophet be found in a collection of Christian saints’ lives? When the Qur’ān attributes no miracles to the Muhammad whatsoever, what is the reason for these Christian writers to do so and then to set about exposing them as false? Hermeneutical argumentation and strawman-polemics are key to understanding the purpose of “Muhammad’s miracles” among a readership that had little, if any, chance of ever coming into contact with Islam.

    Artiklen præsenterer og diskuterer et pergamentfragment på Det Kongelige Bibliotek i København (Fragmentsamling, nr. 3230), ét blad af et nu tabt håndskrift. Det indeholder en mirakelberetning om en bispemorder, en fortælling der også findes i det berømte opbyggelsesværk Sjælens trøst. Fragmentet er dog ikke en overlevende rest af den store, tabte del af det danske Sjælens trøst-håndskrift (de to overlevende rester findes som Ups. C 529 og Holm. A 109); fragmentet hører hjemme i en anden redaktion eller snarere i en helt anden overleveringstradition.

    Beyond the Piraeus Lion: East Norse Studies from Venice2017Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    East Norse philology – the study of Old Danish, Old Swedish, and Old Gutnish – continues to attract scholarly attention from around the world. Beyond the Piraeus Lion comprises fourteen articles on a vast number of topics by researchers from Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, and the USA. They are based on a selection of the papers given at the Second International Conference for East Norse Philology held at Ca’Foscari University ofVenice in November 2015. The volume covers subjects ranging from codicology and material philology to text transmission and reception, from women’s literacy in medieval Sweden to studies of Old Danish lexicon, and from Bible translations to Old Swedish poetics. In all, there are five sections in the volume – Palaeography, Codicology, and Editing; Manuscript Studies; Vocabulary and Style; Literature and Writing; Bibles and Translations – that all demonstrate the breadth and vitality of East Norse philology. The book is the second volume published by Selskab for Østnordisk Filologi · Sällskap för östnordisk filologi, established in Uppsala in 2013.

    Odödliga monument: Återanvändning av megalitgravar2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Megalithic tombs that originally date back to the early to mid-neolithic are the oldest preserved monument that can be found in Scandinavia. The act of raising big stone structures for the dead shows that the monuments where build to last through time. Prehistoric people from different time periods have reused these monuments on different locations all over Europe. This paper focuses on the monuments in Sweden and it shows that the reuse of megalithic monuments appears in all regions where these monuments can be found. The different reasons to why people wanted to reuse these monuments are also discussed. The paper proposes that the reasons are religious and political. Political the monuments can give inheritance rights which granted land rights among other things.

    "Att vara bred är en tillgång": En kvalitativ intervjustudie av fyra sångpedagogers syn på genreval i sångundervisningen på gymnasiet2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur gymnasieelevers individuella sånglektioner skiljer sig åt beroende på i hur stor utsträckning sångpedagogernas eget genreintresse styr. Studien är baserad på fyra semistrukturerade intervjuer där två sångpedagoger har sin hemvist inom den klassiska sångtraditionen och två sångpedagoger har sin hemvist inom den afroamerikanska sångtraditionen. Studien är av jämförande karaktär där fokus ligger på eventuella likheter och skillnader mellan sångpedagogers synsätt inom de två olika genrerna. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten för studien utgår från ett sociokulturellt perspektiv och hur kulturella redskap och omgivningar påverkar undervisningen och lärandet. Studiens resultat visar att sångpedagogerna har fler åsikter som förbinder dem samman än vad de har som skiljer sig åt gällande medvetna genreval, hur deras eget genreintresse påverkar sångundervisningen och synen på läroplanen i förhållande till lektionen och dess innehåll. Intervjupersonerna skiljer sig åt gällande lektionsupplägget för nybörjarelever samt sitt personliga musiklyssnande. I diskussionen lyfts sedan de teman som uppkommit i resultatet utifrån ett sociokulturellt perspektiv. Dessa teman är: medvetna och omedvetna val gällande genre, läroplanen som redskap i sångundervisningen samt det egna genreintresset som redskap i sångundervisningen. Det som framkommer är att sångpedagogernas olika redskap påverkar hur de arbetar i och kring sin sångundervisning på gymnasiet.

    Child-Computer Interaction at the Beginner Stage of Music Learning: Effects of Reflexive Interaction on Children's Musical Improvisation2017Inngår i: Frontiers in Psychology, ISSN 1664-1078, E-ISSN 1664-1078, Vol. 8, 65Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article childrens musical improvisation is investigated through the reflexive interaction paradigm. We used a particular system, the MIROR-Impro, implemented in the framework of the MIROR project (EC-FP7), which is able to reply to the child playing a keyboard by a reflexive output, mirroring (with repetitions and variations) her/his inputs. The study was conducted in a public primary school, with 47 children, aged 6-7. The experimental design used the convergence procedure, based on three sample groups allowing us to verify if the reflexive interaction using the MIROR-Impro is necessary and/or sufficient to improve the childrens abilities to improvise. The following conditions were used as independent variables: to play only the keyboard, the keyboard with the MIROR-Impro but with not-reflexive reply, the keyboard with the MIROR-Impro with reflexive reply. As dependent variables we estimated the childrens ability to improvise in solos, and in duets. Each child carried out a training program consisting of 5 weekly individual 12 min sessions. The control group played the complete package of independent variables; Experimental Group 1 played the keyboard and the keyboard with the MIROR-Impro with not-reflexive reply; Experimental Group 2 played only the keyboard with the reflexive system. One week after, the children were asked to improvise a musical piece on the keyboard alone (Solo task), and in pairs with a friend (Duet task). Three independent judges assessed the Solo and the Duet tasks by means of a grid based on the TAI-Test for Ability to Improvise rating scale. The EG2, which trained only with the reflexive system, reached the highest average results and the difference with EG1, which did not used the reflexive system, is statistically significant when the children improvise in a duet. The results indicate that in the sample of participants the reflexive interaction alone could be sufficient to increase the improvisational skills, and necessary when they improvise in duets. However, these results are in general not statistically significant. The correlation between Reflexive Interaction and the ability to improvise is statistically significant. The results are discussed on the light of the recent literature in neuroscience and music education.

    Names of swords in Icelandic sagas2017Inngår i: EASR Annual Conference : Communicating Religion: University of Leuven 18-21 September 2017, 2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    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.

    Abstract [en]

    The case study presented here is an intensive nine day community participation project in a Swiss town, aimed at fostering community food production. The approach to participatory design presented here seeks to emphasize the in-situ improvisatory ‘doing' of collaborative activities. Using notions such as diffusing, reifying and catalyzing the study describes the iterative movement of the project that is bound up in material arrangements and social relations. Through a reflection in action approach, the author unpacks how the designer's agency is understood through social interactions and acts of summarizing, materialization and translation. The paper concludes by discussing power and agency, both as an outcome and central to the design process. This reflective exploration through the lens of agency seeks to encourage the reflexivity of designers in collaborative practice.

    Minnesspår: Hågkomstens rum och rörelse i skuggan av flykt2017Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Focusing on the memories of Estonian refugees moving to Sweden in the wake of World War II, I analyze the concepts of “memory space” and history within the framework of the Escape as a master narrative. Following the research participants to the sites of their memories in Estonia and Sweden today, raised the questions what constitutes a lived memory space, and how is history defined within it?

    Through a combination of a phenomenological analysis of memory’s lived ex­perience, using Walter Benjamin’s concept of montage as radical remembering and its dialectical relation to history, I show how embodied memories shape their own space, a space not always framed by historical master narratives and identity posi­tions, but rather a searching space that is always changing. Dealing with the politics of place and representations, these memories are constantly loaded and unloaded with meaning. Yet the space of lived memory is not always a creation of meaning. Walking around, searching for traces, a memory space confronts the place and maps its own geography. It turns to a spatial and temporal flow, which intertwines place and experience, and erases the past and future as homogeneous categories. It is a living space of memory, rather than a memorial space of representations.

    The analysis focuses further on the tensions between remembering as a dialogue with history and memory’s ongoing acts of embodied experience. The position of in-betweenness appears in these stories of escape, not as a state of in-between home and away, past and present, but rather as an ongoing space-making process be­tween different modes and layers of memory. This is a process aware of the constant changes in the understandings of both history and personal experiences, intertwin­ing these new interpretations with embodied memory and thereby constantly add­ing new layers of experience to it. Memory’s tracing illuminates a memory poetics of the meanwhile and the in-between, which refuses historical closure.

    Royal Splendour in the Waters Vedic Sri- and Avestan X(v)arenah-2017Inngår i: Indo-Iranian Journal, ISSN 0019-7246, E-ISSN 1572-8536, Vol. 60, nr 1, 17-73 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores, from an Indo-Iranian comparative perspective, the concept of 'royal splendour' and its role in myth, ritual and political discourse, in ancient Indian and Iranian texts. It argues that there are similarities both on the level of details (terminology, imagery, motifs) and on a broader level (ruler ideology), some of which likely go back to Proto-Indo-Iranian culture. The article relates the Avestan xvarenahto the Vedic sri- and varcas-, as well as their Avestan counterparts sri- and varecah-. It looks at how the Vedic/Avestan epithet apam. napat-/apam napat- is connected to the motif of aquatic and royal splendour. The Avestan concept of royal splendour, it is argued, also shares key characteristics with the late Vedic and early epic goddess Sri. As the fickle and mobile consort of successive kings, whom she approaches or abandons depending on their virtues, the epic Sri is reminiscent of xvarenah-.

    Dressed for Success? – Tech startupsuppfattning om värdet av den visuellaidentiteten2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Att ett bra varumärke kräver en tydlig visuell identitet råder inget tvivel om,

    men vad innebär det i praktiken? Syftet med föreliggande studie var att

    undersöka tech startups uppfattning om värdet av den visuella identiteten.

    Genom semi-strukturerade djupintervjuer med nio respondenter från nio olika

    tech startups, samt en affärscoach, undersöker studien således hur tech startup

    värderar den visuella identiteten i förhållande till hur de hittills har arbetat med


    Den generella uppfattningen, utifrån intervjuerna, visade att den visuella

    identiteten är viktig. Samtliga respondenter har uppdaterat den visuella

    identiteten en eller ett flertal gånger med anledning av att den visuella

    identiteten har vuxit fram med tiden.

    I studien framkom det även att tech startups, vars grundare hade en bakgrund

    inom design eller kommunikation, hittat sin visuella identitet tidigt även om

    enklare uppdateringar har genomförts.

    Trots att samtliga respondenter understryker vikten av den visuella identiteten

    betonar de emellertid vikten av att inte kunna mäta design. Då startups i

    allmänhet, men tech start synnerhet, har begränsat med resursers ses det som en

    risk att prioritera det visuella, vilket bidrar till att tech startup istället fokuserar

    på andra områden som är mer akuta än den visuella identiteten.

    Projecting Realities: Re-mediation in the Realm of Architecture2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The boundaries between physical and virtual are dissolving as worlds are superimposed through media saturation. The design proposal of a movie theater at S:t Eriksgatan in Stockholm acts as vehicle for exploring the opportunities of architecture in an unstable reality. Remediation. A concept within media studies, describes the way any new media incorporates the traits of already existing ones. Conversely, “(…)older media refashion themselves to answer the challenges of new media”(1).

    By regarding architecture as a world-conjuring operation, parallel investigations into other media provide new tools of design. The method consists of simultaneously developing five works in five media: text, image, diorama, video and architecture. The text serves as abinding narrative. The image is based on an analysis of Giovanni Battista Piranesis prison etchings wich exhibit a range of devices particular to the world of image. The diorama or mirror box is an attempt to create a boundless but contained world. The video world has centered around the use of a reverse zoom effect. The movie theater uses the techniques of media in order to enhance it´s immersive qualities.

    Stereotyper, traditioner och den normbärande aktören i Lassemajas detektivbyrå: En studie om genuskonstruktioner och maktdimensioner i 2015 års bästsäljande barnlitteratur, Fängelsemysteriet.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis studies five contemporary illustrated images from the 2015 bestselling children’s book Fängelsemysteriet, from the book series Lassemajas Detektivbyrå.

    The thesis examines the images in order to interpret how gender is constructed and how the power of balance is displayed through the images. Thereafter, an analysis is carried out to determine in which ways the images have been influenced by national and cultural traditions and which conceptions regarding nationality, gender and age are noticeable. The thesis aim is to critically review the norms and patterns that can frequently be found in art and children’s literature. Because the images studied are illustrations in a literature book, the written text is also taken in consideration and studied in interaction with the images which gives the essay a literature angle. The thesis primary purpose is however the image analysis and the theoretical approach is headmost gender based. Panofsky´s iconological interpretation method is crucial in order to define and identify different gender roles and power dimensions. The images contain conventional gender patterns where “male” and “female” is kept separate. Attributes, activities, roles, professions and personal qualities distinguish differences in men and women. Even if the images show a norm deviation where children are portrayed as equals, traditional and stereotype gender roles can still be distinguished. The images illustrate clichéd perceptions of nationality and community. Foreign characters are stereotypically portrayed through traits which accommodate traditional and national symbols, names that can be associated with different cultures and religions and characters are portrayed with stereotypical appearances. Throughout the book the white middle-aged man is overrepresented and appears to still be norm bearing in Sweden’s most read contemporary children’s book today.

    Vetenskapshistoriedisciplinens etiska rötter: Kulturkritik, idealism och dygdelära i George Sartons kamp om begreppet humanism2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker vetenskapshistorikern George Sartons (1884–1956) nyhumanism i ljuset av den kritik han riktade mot humanister och de brännande samhällsproblemen han såg i sin samtid. Tidigare forskning har tolkat Sarton som isolerad från samtida intellektuella diskussioner, poängterat Sartons idéers begränsade framgångar och tolkat dessa som ett förespråkande av enhetsvetenskap mer hemmahörande i 1800-talet. Dessa studier har inte i tillräckligt hög utsträckning uppmärksammat Sartons kritik av humanister som en begripliggörande kontext. Humanister kritiserades på grund av deras avståndstagande från vetenskaper resulterade i en verklighetsfrånvändhet som gjorde humanister till irrelevanta för samtiden. Undersökningen visar att Sartons nyhumanism framför allt förespråkade en etik och världsbild för att kunna hantera den tekniska moderniteten. Vetenskapshistoria var ett medel för att ingjuta goda moraliska karaktärsdrag i individer. Genom att fokusera på begreppet humanism synliggörs Sartons försök till att förskjuta betydelsen från klassicism mot antropocentrism för att formulera en samtidsrelevant ideologi.

    Fruängen Centrum: En kontextuell strategi för det offentliga rummet2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Ämnet för det här examensarbetet är integrerade förortscentrum från efterkrigstiden, med fokus på Fruängen Centrum i södra Stockholm. Den huvudsakliga frågeställningen var vilka ingrepp som kan göras i den här typen av miljö, utan att helt bryta mot logiken i det befintliga systemet och dess planering. Syftet har varit att tillföra mer specifik och monumental arkitektur i en generisk miljo, och att skapa starkare och tydligare offentliga rum. 

    Förslaget består av två byggnader, en bussterminal placerad på det befitnliga busstorget, samt ett bibliotek på den stora parkeringsplatsen bakom centrumet. Ett nytt parkeringsgarage i bussterminalen möjliggör bibliotekets placering, genom att frigöra yta på parkeringsplatsen. 

    Projektet föreslår att genom att hantera trafiksituationen på ett mer effektivt sätt i den här typen av förortscentrum, kan man frigöra plats för byggnader på offentligt ägd mark. Detta skulle tillåta återinförandet av civila institutioner i alltmer kommersiella och privatiserade centrum, samt bidra till bättre offentliga miljöer.

    Personal Autonomy and Informed Consent: Conceptual and Normative Analyses2017Licentiatavhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This licentiate thesis is comprised of a “kappa” and two articles. The kappa includes an account of personal autonomy and informed consent, an explanation of how the concepts and articles relate to each other, and a summary in Swedish.

    Article 1 treats one problem with the argument that a patient’s consent to treatment is valid only if it is authentic, i.e., if it is “genuine,” “truly her own,” “not out of character,” or similar. As interventions with a patient’s life and liberties must be justified, the argument presupposes that the authenticity of desires can be reliably determined. If the status of a desire in terms of authenticity cannot be reliably determined, discarding the desire-holder’s treatment decision on the basis that it is inauthentic is morally unjustified. In the article, I argue that no theory of authenticity that is present in the relevant literature can render reliably observable consequences. Therefore, the concept of authenticity, as it is understood in those theories, should not be part of informed consent practices.

    Article 2 discusses the problem of what it is to consent or refuse voluntarily. In it, I argue that voluntariness should be more narrowly understood than what is common. My main point is that a conceptualization of voluntariness should be agent-centered, i.e., take into account the agent’s view of her actions. Among other things, I argue that an action is non-voluntary only if the agent thinks of it as such when being coerced. This notion, which at first look may seem uncontroversial, entails the counterintuitive conclusion that an action can be voluntary although the agent has been manipulated or coerced into doing it. In defense of the notion, I argue that if the agent’s point of view is not considered accordingly, describing her actions as non-voluntary can be alien to how she leads her life. There are other moral concepts available to describe what is wrong with manipulation and coercion, i.e., to make sense of the counterintuitive conclusion. Voluntariness should be reserved to fewer cases than what is commonly assumed.

    The impossibility of reliably determining the authenticity of desires: implications for informed consent2017Inngår i: Medicine, Health care and Philosophy, ISSN 1386-7423, E-ISSN 1572-8633Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It is sometimes argued that autonomous decision-making requires that the decision-maker’s desires are authentic, i.e., “genuine,” “truly her own,” “not out of character,” or similar. In this article, it is argued that a method to reliably determine the authenticity (or inauthenticity) of a desire cannot be developed. A taxonomy of characteristics displayed by different theories of authenticity is introduced and applied to evaluate such theories categorically, in contrast to the prior approach of treating them individually. The conclusion is drawn that, in practice, the authenticity of desires cannot be reliably determined. It is suggested that authenticity should therefore not be employed in informed consent practices in healthcare.

    Writing and Identity in Jane Jeong Trenka’s Life Narratives2017Inngår i: International Adoption in North American Literature and Culture: transnational, transracial and transcultural narratives / [ed] Mark Shackleton, Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, 121-142 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores the connection between writing and subjectivity in Jane Jeong Trenka’s two memoirs, The Language of Blood (2003) and Fugitive Visions (2009), suggesting that the two texts participate in a dialogue in which questions that were raised in the first work are revisited and reconsidered in the second. The result is a multilayered and at times conflicted life narrative, which offers no simple solutions to the complex questions of identity raised. While Trenka’s texts address the unspeakable aspects of adoption and the inability to recover parts of the past, they also address the materiality of adoption. Common adoption myths, such as the discourse of rescue, and the myth of color-blindness, are debunked. The chapter argues that there is a tension in the texts between the representation of adoption as trauma with individual as well as societal implications, and adoption as a productive site generating questions of identity and origin of universal relevance. Placing the form and act of narration in focus, the analysis suggests that the adoption narrative may function as an empowering imaginative space for the production of identity. In addition, the paper traces how sensory experiences are used to re-enact the past—or even instill new memories to replace the perceived gaps in the narrative of the past. The two texts suggest that an engagement with and translation of the non-verbal aspects of identity into text can provide acts of self-authorization that demonstrate the restorative potential of the transnational adoptee’s life narrative.

    Allt är i sin ordning: En kritisk diskursanalys av hur tre svenska dagstidningar skrev om börskraschen och den ekonomiska krisen 1929-19312017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates how the economic crisis, later known as the great depression which harvested especially the Western world during the 1930s, was depicted by the Swedish newspapers between the great crash on the stock market on Wall Street in New York 1929 until 1931. The purpose of this thesis is to see how the depiction of the crisis looked like in the Swedish newspapers during the time being and to see if there were any differences between newspapers that were of different political standings. Also, part of the purpose is to try to locate any changes in their way of depicting the crisis during the time that is being investigated. The theoretical and methodological approach is based on critical discourse analysis as presented by Norman Fairclough and the investigation of the newspapers has mainly been based on a textual analysis of their use of language but also an analysis of their arguments and presented ideas has been done. Their arguments were often politically bounded and their way of expressing their thoughts on the matter were generally with a high degree of confidence. The conclusion is that the newspapers in Sweden were depicting the economic crisis in ways which were dependant on their different political boundaries.

    Hjälp alla så långt du förmår!: En undersökning av Arthur Schopenhauers etik2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of this thesis is the ethics of German 19th century philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. The study examines Schopenhauer’s ethics and investigates his criticism of the ethics of his older German colleague Immanuel Kant. By arguing that all true morally acceptable and good actions originate from compassion, Schopenhauer distinguishes his view from the deontological ethics held by Kant. The study focuses on Schopenhauer’s view on the basis of morals. Its purpose is to consider an ethical perspective that interconnect moral considerations with human empathy. By comparing the arguments presented by these two philosophers one can get a clearer view of the extent to which Schopenhauer’s criticism of Kant’s ethics is justified. In the analysis, five major parts of Schopenhauer’s criticism are identified and studied one by one. The findings suggest that Schopenhauer’s ethics and the ethics of Kant can be represented as two different ethical paradigms.

    "Vi tar in hela världen i klassrummet": En studie om hur lärare beskriver att de arbetar för att ta vara på flerspråkiga elevers språkliga och kulturella erfarenheter i undervisningen2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Enligt Läroplan för grundskolan, förskoleklassen och fritidshemmet 2011, reviderad 2016, ska undervisningen utgå från elevernas bakgrund, tidigare erfarenheter, språk och kunskaper (Skolverket, 2016b). Denna studies syfte är att undersöka hur lärare i årskurs 1-3 arbetar för att ta vara på elevers språkliga och kulturella erfarenheter i ett klassrum där flera språk och kulturer finns representerade. För att uppfylla detta syfte ställdes följande frågor:Hur beskriver lärare att de arbetar för att ge elevernas språkliga och kulturella erfarenheter utrymme i undervisningen och i den fysiska klassrumsmiljön? Vilka förhållningssätt kommer till uttryck gällande hur stort utrymme elevernas språkliga och kulturella erfarenheter ska få i undervisningen?

    Studien är en kvalitativ studie där fyra lärare har intervjuats, klassrumsmiljöer har fotograferats och pedagogiska planeringar har granskats. Materialet har analyserats utifrån ett interkulturellt och ett poststrukturellt perspektiv. Resultatet visar att för att få kunskap om elevernas tidigare erfarenheter måste lärare bygga relationer till eleverna vilket ofta sker utanför klassrumsmiljön. När det gäller att ta vara på elevernas olika språk i undervisningen har digitala hjälpmedel men också studiehandledaren en viktig roll. Lärarna i studien ser flerspråkighet och mångkulturalitet som en resurs och de menar att många olika kulturer och språk i en klass berikar undervisningen. Slutligen visar också resultatet att lärarna upplever svårigheter med att ta vara på elevernas tidigare erfarenheter i matematiken.

    Dystopiernas möjligheter: En litteraturdidaktisk studie om hur dystopisk skönlitteratur kan användas i ämnesövergripande arbete2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    I det här arbetet undersöker vi hur man kan arbeta med dystopisk skönlitteratur som primärt verktyg i ämnesövergripande arbete på gymnasiet. Vi undersöker också hur ett sådant arbete kan främja elevernas kritiska tänkande och hur det kan gynna lärare i yrket. Uppsatsen vilar på en teoretisk grund vilken utgår från ett sociokulturellt lärande. Teoretikerna vi använder som stöd är Roger Säljö och Lev Vygotskij. Vi använder de skönlitterära verken Brave New World av Aldous Huxley, Kallocain av Karin Boye, 1984 av George Orwell och The Hunger Games av Suzanne Collins, som exempel i ett ämnesövergripande arbete. I studien har vi kommit fram till att ett ämnesövergripande arbete med dystopisk skönlitteratur som nyckeltext fungerar mellan svenska och flera olika kurser på gymnasiet. Vi har även kommit fram till att arbete med dystopisk skönlitteratur kan gynna elevers kritiska tänkande, vissa berättelser mer än andra. Genom att använda dystopisk skönlitteratur som nyckeltext i ett ämnesövergripande arbete får läraren avlastning i arbetsbördan. Det finns även dubbel kompetens att tillgå i ett sådant arbete, även för eleverna som genom textsamtal utifrån olika perspektiv har bättre förutsättningar till högre måluppfyllelse.

    Charging the Void: (Perception Odd Logic)2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    As a concern for how new city developments invest in commercial

    public space of economic activity rather than cultural activity and

    inclusion, part of a global trend and also the case of Umeå’s ambition

    to reach the population growth of 200 000 inhabitants by the year of

    2050. The question to be asked in this regard is what kind of effect

    does this produce on the way we as local inhabitants can take control

    and be part of the creation of our own living environment? Or are

    we just victims of a life consumed by slow decay due to the capital


    In relation to this main concern, the project has been developing

    through the aspect of acknowledging inferior space and abandoned

    objects as a method and typology to analyze alternative ways to

    perceive the city off based the logic of clear function and use, but in

    terms of human interaction and subjective perception of space. The

    point of departure and important key element for this development

    derived from the early stages of research and influential work by

    Robert Smithson’s Monuments of Passaic New Jersey, (1967) with

    a main quote on the description of Smithson’s work and the term of

    monuments, here defined by Ann Reynolds as: “how something plot

    out and charge a space with meaning”

    Learning from memory traces of an abandoned set of futures evoked

    the idea and strive towards creating space not tied to a specific

    use or function, but as a collaboration and juxtaposition between

    form and the viewer’s experience. In add to an understanding of a

    presence which ties together the past and the present as an indirect

    translation of the developed concept for contemporary Ruins, as the

    perception of void. The ruins association to object defined through

    the observer became a guideline towards the aim of designing nonhierarchical

    space, free of us and interpreted by the visitor within the

    city scape.

    Based on this foundation this thesis aims to examine the possibilities

    of architectural structures which can encourage and create conditions

    for new cultural and social meetings. The abstract concept of space

    and deliberate openness to interpretation can allow the visitor to

    take co-authorship of their own living environment based on their

    personal understanding and imagination of that space. The action

    is by deliberate disjunction between form and viewer’s experience

    forced by a superimposition plan as a design strategy for redeveloping

    the current Döbelns Park into a new culture park in the city context

    of Umeå, Västerbotten, Sweden. Fragments of the park will in add

    create a system of integrated monumental sculpture scapes, as a

    network of in-between small scale interventions adapting to specific

    site conditions together with implemented greenery. To secure areas

    within the city scape with access to greenery and social interactive

    meeting points, part of the Urban strategy.

    How do influencers portray companies on Instagram?: A multimodal discourse analysis on sponsored updates on the social media network Instagram2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis approaches the newly developed phenomenon of Influencer Marketing, with the aim to investigate the structure of influencer’s sponsored posts on the social media network Instagram. As people continuously express their opinions and feelings on social networking sites, this thesis analyses the textual and multimodal aspects of 18 posts from six influencers of two companies, namely Daniel Wellington and Na-kd, from the perspective of stance to distinguish similarities, differences and patterns concerning the structure of the posts and what these might imply regarding how a sponsored update marketing a product is structured. The results indicate that a common structure of how sponsored updates are generally constructed exists, but that the way they structure their posts does not depend on which company they are presenting, but rather how influencers structure their posts in general. Hence, there are similarities that conform to the influencers marketing both companies, for instance that the texts have roughly the same length and similar composition- both regarding the textual and the multimodal aspects. In addition, one important finding was the need of pragmatic competence to fully interpret how the influencer expresses stance, evaluation and positioning in the sponsored updates. To conclude, as Influencer Marketing provide a new way of communicating, I hope that other researchers continue to investigate Influencer Marketing on social media to contribute to the field of linguistics further.

    Den hållbara urbanplaneringens paradoxer: The paradoxes of unsustainable urban planning2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats har studerat två stadsplanerings ideal som framträder i planeringsprocessen i den fysiska planeringen. Studiens utgångspunkt har varit hållbar utveckling för att studera de två rådande urbanplaneringarna idag. Detta innebär att den täta staden och den gröna staden har varit huvudsakligt fokus i denna studie, men hållbar utveckling har ett stort utrymme tillsammans med många av de aspekter som förväntas leda till en hållbar utveckling. Fallstudie har använts för att undersöka hur Karlstad kommun arbetar med frågan och hur paradoxen kommer fram i kommunens stadsplanering. Karlstad kommun arbetar just nu med att ta fram en ny grönstrukturplan. Studiens empiri bygger på två intervjuer med Karlstads kommuns tjänstemän. Även kommunala dokument som Karlstad kommuns översiktsplan (2012) samt Olmårs förtätningsstudie (2007) har använts. Genom meningsinnehåll har intervjumaterialet och de kommunala dokumenten analyserats. Studiens analys bygger på studiens empiri, och den teoretiska bakgrunden visar på att det finns en paradox i Karlstad kommuns stadsplanering.  Det visar även på en trend som syftar till att städerna ska uppnå den hållbara staden. I och med att hållbarhetsbegreppet är ett diffust begrepp har den täta staden och den gröna staden blivit en komplex strategi för att uppnå den hållbara staden. Det innebär att den gröna och täta staden kan ses från flera olika vinklar. Karlstad kommuns vision om den täta staden är att kunna ha tät stad framförallt i centrala delar av staden som idag är till en viss del bestående av gröna ytor. Här uppstår det ett planeringsdilemma mellan de ambitioner som finns i planeringen och gör att dessa måste vägas mot varandra. Det innebär att om grönstruktur prioriteras måste en annan aspekt vägas bort. Detta betyder att det finns en paradox i kommunens stadsplanering, och detta synliggörs i denna uppsats.    Nyckelord: urbanplanering, Karlstad, täta staden, gröna staden, stadsutveckling

    Låt hjärnan vara med!: Ett arbete om vikten av koncentration vid övning och framförande2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med det här arbetet är att undersöka hur jag med hjälp av den kognitiva neurovetenskapens forskning om hjärnans koncentrations- och uppmärksamhetsförmåga, kan förbättra och effektivisera min instudering och framförandet som pianist av tre verk med tre skilda speltekniska krav från tre olika tidsepoker. Jag har strävat efter att hitta metoder för att kontrollera min koncentration och uppmärksamhet bättre vid övning och framförande. Vidare vill jag genom bredden av repertoaren, skapa en mall som kan hjälpa mig och framtida musiker förbättra spelet genom kontrollerad koncentration vid övning och framförande.

    I det här arbetet har jag valt tre verk som är skrivna av kompositörerna J.S. Bach, W. A Mozart och F. Chopin. Verken är Preludium och fuga i Bess-dur BWV 866, Sonat nr 4 i Ess-dur och Ballade nr 3 i Ass-dur. Dessa är verk som pianister vid ett eller annat tillfälle spelar och tacklar de eviga svårigheterna som är att behärska polyfonin, artikulationen och flexibiliteten i sitt spel. Jag har skrivit om arbetsminnet roll för koncentrationen och inspirerats och strävat efter att hitta en mall för att kontrollera min koncentration och applicera mallen på verkens svårigheter och vad min lärare föreslagit att jag förbättrar i mitt spel.

    Mitt arbete har resulterat i att jag utifrån en mall på olika sätt har applicerat forskningen om hjärnans arbetsminne och dess roll för koncentrationen till att hjälpa mig i musicerandet, hur mallen har sett ut för att kontrollera koncentrationen, hur jag har applicerat och arbetat utifrån den i min instudering och framförande och därigenom har kunnat förbättra mitt spel.

    En lysande fyrbåk i hednaverlden: Om förändringar i synen på de religiösa praktikerna, grupperna och subjekten i Helgelseförbundets missionsbrev från Kina 1891-1950.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    From the middle of the 19th century onwards the number of protestant missionaries in China increased tremendously. The evangelical revival movement played an important role in this development with pioneers like J. Hudson Taylor and his China Inland Mission (CIM) on the frontlines. The Swedish Holiness Union (SHU) decided to join CIM in the northern parts of China were the union established its missionary field in 1890. This essay aims to explore changes in how other religious practices, groups and subjects are constructed within SHU missionary letters from China published 1891-1950. The source material consists of missionary letters published in the Unions own periodical Trons Segrar 1891, 1928 and 1950. By basing the analysis on Laclau’s and Mouffe’s discourse theory the study will explore how different discursive formations change, affirm or undermine each other and how different religious practices, groups and subjects are constructed and characterized within a discursive framework.
