    El uso del portugués en comunidades de religiones afrobrasileñas en el Uruguay: un estudio de caso2013Inngår i: Estudios afrolatinoamericanos: nuevos enfoques multidisciplinarios: Actas de las Terceras Jornadas del GEALA / [ed] María de Lourdes Ghidoli, Juan Francisco Martínez Peria, Buenos Aires: Ediciones del CCC Centro Cultural de la Cooperación Floreal Gorini , 2013, 587-601 s.Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [es]

    Varios investigadores del campo de las ciencias sociales han señalado que la frontera de Rio Grande do Sul funciona como frente de expansión de las religiones afrobrasileñas para Uruguay y Argentina. Pi Hugarte, autor de una serie de publicaciones sobre las mencionadas religiones en el Uruguay, afirma que “la umbanda del Uruguay ya es un fenómeno cultural propio” (Pi Hugarte, 1992: 45). Eso coincide con la postura de Porzecanski (2008) que se refiere al “ritual afro-uruguayo de la Umbanda”, lo que se puede interpretar como la designación de una modalidad regional de esa religión. Según trabajos anteriores, en los rituales de dicha modalidad regional se emplea el portugués, pero no encontramos investigaciones de carácter lingüístico sobre la difusión de esa lengua como consecuencia de la expansión religiosa o sobre el uso del portugués brasileño y la convivencia de esa variedad con el español regional en el ámbito afroumbandista. Fue así que surgió la idea de realizar un trabajo de campo para observar la comunicación ritual y juntar datos lingüísticos en una comunidad montevideana que se dedica a las prácticas religiosas denominadas Batuque Quimbanda y Umbanda. Aportamos datos empíricos de un estudio de caso para describir el uso del portugués en contextos religiosos entre hablantes nativos de español. Completamos los datos recogidos consultando estudios anteriores para poder ampliar el universo observado y presentar ejemplos de comunidades que no tuvimos la oportunidad de visitar. Las preguntas discutidas son: ¿En qué situaciones comunicativas y por qué razones se utiliza el portugués en contextos religiosos y rituales en el Uruguay? ¿Cuáles son los componentes lingüísticos que se destacan y cuál es su relación con las variedades de español regional y con el lenguaje que se utiliza en comunidades de religión afro en el Brasil?

    Comparing National Museums: Methodological Reflections2008Inngår i: NaMu IV: Comparing: National Museums,Territories, Nation-Building and Change / [ed] Peter Aronsson; Andreas Nyblom, Linköping, Sweden: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2008, 5-20 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The article sets out to define the need for comparing national museums as complex cultural processes. To do this questions are developed that concern the workings of institutions as arenas for cultural policy and identity politics in relation to central fields of knowledge. Methodological considerations for designing a comparative project are presented; and finally four fields of comparative endeavours related to different sets of state-making processes are presented:

    An all-encompassing European comparison (including colonial endeavours) on the path taken by various nations to establish the place of national museums and the role they play in the creation of community.

    An in-depth study of how the national display in a selection of countries creates visions of cultural community. How do they deal with differences and belongings on a super-national level and how do they relate to regional differences?

    From a citizens’ perspective the intentions of cultural policy or institutional ambitions might be of little importance. This part will simulate visitor experience of national narratives in a comparative selection of capitals from project one; in order to develop an understanding of how citizen experience relates to the more structural findings in the other sub-projects and hence map in what directions citizenship and community are moving through contemporary displays of national community.

    The place of national museums in changing knowledge regimes.

    Preschoolers’ Conceptions of Technological Artefacts and Gender in Picture Books2016Inngår i: PATT-32 Proceedings Technology Education for 21st Century Skills / [ed] J. de Vries, Arien Bekker-Holtland and Gerald van Dijk, ITEEA , 2016, 57-64 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Picture books are a frequent element of daily preschool activities (Damber, Nilsson & Ohlsson, 2013; Simonsson, 2004; SOU 2006:75). They are important pedagogical tools that can help children acquire an understanding of the everyday technology they come in contact with, as well as the human application of technology (Axell, 2015; Axell & Boström, 2015). These are skills that are emphasised in the Swedish preschool curriculum. In the curriculum it is also stated that the preschool should counteract traditional gender patterns and gender roles (Skolverket, 2010). However, an investigation of a selection of picture books aimed at preschool children shows that the books content is somewhat problematic. Many of the picture books provide a focus on the function of separate artefacts without any sort of context or explanation of their implications in a societal context. There also tends to be an emphasis on traditional masculine-coded technology in the books. Building and making and working with machines is depicted as a male activity. The male stereotype is essentially connected with different kinds of vehicles like cars, airplanes, motorbikes, tractors etc. (Axell & Boström, 2015; See also Holbrok, 2008). Based on these previous findings, the aim of this pilot study was to obtain an initial concept about how children’s literature may influence preschool children’s view on technological artefacts. The study was conducted through semi-structured interviews with four five-year-olds, two girls and two boys. Through a thematic analysis (Braun & Clarke, 2006) three overarching themes were identified: The relationship between design and function, anthropomorphic animals as users of artefacts, and gender and artefacts. Some of the key findings were that the 5-year-olds did not know what “technology” is, but had good knowledge about tools. Additionally, they did not genderise any of the artefacts included in the study.

    Understanding historic mortars and their variations: a condition for performing restoration with traditional materials2010Inngår i: 2nd Conference on Historic Mortars - HMC 2010 and RILEM TC 203-RHM final workshop / [ed] J. Válek, C. Groot and J.J. Hughes, Prague: Inst. of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Acad. of Sciences of the Czech Republic , 2010, 11-18 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to design a restoration mortar with properties and composition similar to the original mortar, it is important to analyze the historic mortar in several ways. A combination of analyses give information about the mixing ratio between binder and aggregates, chemical composition of the mortar, additives, tool marks, application technique etc. This paper shows the variations in Swedish medieval lime mortars with a high content of binder. By analysing historic mortar with a combination of ocular investigations, microscopically studies of thin section specimens, Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-Ray Powder Diffraction, all the information needed for designing a restoration mortar, with composition and properties similar to the historic mortar, is gained.

    Convective heating in a medieval church: Effects of air-to-air heat pumps on air movements, particle deposition and temperature distribution2009Inngår i: Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Air Distribution in Rooms (Roomvent) 2009, Busan, Korea, 2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In Europe many historic buildings use direct electric heating. Air-to-air heat pumps are an interesting alternative, in particular for conservation heating. However, the convective heating may accelerate soiling of walls and artefacts by increasing the velocity and turbulence. The objective of the present paper is to discuss the general problem, the methodology for studying air motions and temperature distribution, and to present the results from a case study where air-to-air heat pumps and bench heaters were used for heating in a medieval church. The temperatures, velocities and humidity in the church have been measured for four different heating modes. The present study does not indicate any major disadvantages of using heat pumps for background heating in stone churches of the studied kind. More detailed long term studies are needed to ascertain the effects over time.

    Climate Control in Churches in Northern Sweden2009Inngår i: Proceedings Cold Climate HVAC Sisimiut, Greenland, 16-19 March 2009, 2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the extreme north of Sweden, the indoor climate and energy performance of 50 churches is being monitored in order to improve energy efficiency and to improve the indoor climate with respect to the preservation. The objective of the present paper is to investigate if and how both indoor climate and energy efficiency can be improved through better climate control. Three cases were chosen to study churches with no heating, permanent heating and intermittent heating. In each case the actual indoor climate was compared to climate criteria for preservation to determine the consequences in terms of climate control. The results show that there is a conflict between the climate criteria for preservation and the present use of the churches that cannot be resolved by technical solutions only. In order to come up with reasonable compromise research is needed on climate criteria and risk management at extremely low ranges of RH.

    Solar energy and cultural-heritage values2011Inngår i: World Renewable Energy Conference, Linköping, May 2011: Volume 8 (Low-Energy Architecture) / [ed] Moshfegh, Bahram, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2011, 2034-2040 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of solar energy in a building of cultural-heritage value is an issue that brings the trade-off between aspects of use and preservation to a head. A sustainable use and preservation of historic buildings requires broad and long term compromises between social, economic and environmental aspects. The objective of the present paper is to present and discuss a decision framework for such compromises regarding the use of solar energy in historic buildings.

    Designing Smart Textile for Music and Health2011Inngår i: Ambience11: Where Art, Technology and Design meet - Proceedings 2011 / [ed] Lars Hallnäs, Borås: CTF, The Swedish School of Textile, University of Borås , 2011, 39-48 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present our ongoing research on designing smart textile solutions for musical tangibles, what we call co-creative tangibles. Our textile, musical tangibles shall be used to improve health and wellbeing for children with severe disabilities and their families, in their homes. We use theories from the Music and Health field as a framework, both for the design process and the design related user evaluations. Building on an ecological and holistic health approach, our main goal is to reduce passivity and isolation, for the child with special needs. To achieve our overall goal, improve health for the users, our textile, musical tangibles have to evoke feelings in the user, be possible for the users to master, create and strengthen social relations and give the users a feeling of wholeness. Because of our ambitious goal, the diversity of users and the varying everyday situation, our musical tangibles have to offer the users a variety of musical actions to perform, and continuous choices of intensity levels and focus of attention. If not, the musical tangibles will lose their interest fast, and lack the relation building qualities we need. Our Music and Health approach therefore demands our textile, musical tangibles not only to be used as an instrument in limited therapeutic session, but in many situations in the users’ everyday lives.

    A Matter of Fact: on transmission ideals2008Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholarly editing based on textual criticism means examining a bulk of documents and their texts, clustering these around the abstract notion of a work, arranging them in a web of relations and trying to represent this web in the scholarly edition, a surrogate purporting to represent the work. The way the edition positions the documents to the work, and itself as mediator between them, is affected by such factors as ideology, epistemology, aim and function, tradition, and supporting and distributing media. Scholarly editions are to some extent hermeneutical documents and subjective interpretations, in two senses: they carry with them a history of ideology and a hermeneutical heritage, and they also exert an interpretative influence over the objects they are designed to manage. Nevertheless editions have a strong tradition of conveying a sense of value-free objectivity, a mere recording of (matters of) fact. Charles Bazerman has observed that ”... to write science is commonly thought not to write at all, just simply to record the natural facts." This is a scientific legacy within scholarly editing as well. Further, the transmission that both scholarly editors and e.g. digitizers at libraries are engaged in when transferring a perceived content (such as 'text') from one document to another, can be differently recognized by the 'transmittors' as media models, i.e. as either: 1/ context-free content delivery, or 2/ interpretative and tool-dependent content manipulation, or 3/ a process that is defined by a context-dependent and content-circulating ecosystem of media. As a consequence, scholarly editing is historically a field where conflicting ideals battle: on the one hand, the ideal that the edition (bordering on 'archive') should strive for total exhaustiveness, uniformity, perfect mimetics and universal tools; on the other, that editions should recognize and be valued for their authority to select and deselect, explain and interpret, define and constitute. This paper will looks at some of these models and ideals that might seem to be in conflict, and specifically discusses to what extent they are prolonged or even boosted (= tradition), or perhaps changed or even annihilated (= innovation) within the realm of digital scholarly editing. And if the two fields of scholarly editing and library activities (such as digitization and metadata scheme production) are increasingly brough closer to one another, how does that development fit with the aforementioned models and ideals?

    Digitized library collections: an open source approach2008Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    If publicly funded libraries (PFL) such as national libraries were to adopt a more open source approach when making digitized cultural heritage (CH) material available, users would be granted not only open access to delivery files at a surface level (in e.g. PDF, JPG, or XHTML) but ”deep access” to archival file material and technical documentation as well (such as TIFF, full XML/TEI, scripts, style sheets and machine instructions). PFL:s would thereby strengthen the force behind the values of equal access, of supporting education and research, and of distributing not only digitized material but competence and methods as well. They might also come one step closer to sharing information-rich material with other digitizing institutions by constructing valid banks of commonly and mutually accessible digitized CH material. As of yet however, this is far from the case. Many PFL:s are rather adopting a policy to restrict public access to light-weight delivery versions while charging users for access to the archival, deep level (or hiding it away altogether). This paper examines some of the arguments for such a restrictive policy and discusses feasible ways of bypassing some of the open source obstacles.

    Documents reconstructed: digitization and institutional practice as mediation2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Libraries and other memory institutions have throughout history developed a range of methods and tools for transmitting full texts between material carriers and across media family borders. In this sense, library digitization belongs to the same tradition as 20th century microfilming and the ancient transcribing of manuscripts. The Gutenberg era marked a sharp decline in this full text transmitting business, and libraries devoted their time to producing bibliographical knowledge organization (KO) labels for documents rather than reproducing the full documents themselves. With digital reproduction technologies however, libraries have drawn a historic circle. They are yet again dedicating much energy and attention to the full text transmission they largely abandoned at the dawn of the printed age. In so doing, they take on a much more explicit role of producing and shaping the digital cultural heritage (CH) in addition to its accustomed role of preserving it and making it available. In this paper, we will discuss the practices of digitization within the library institutional setting, and in particular, the national library setting

    Multilingual and Semantic Extension of Folk Tale Catalogues2012Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We address the multilingual and semantic upgrades of two digital catalogues of motifs and types in folk-literature: the Thompson’s Motif-Index of Folk-Literature (TMI) and the Aarne-Thompson-Uther classification system (ATU). The methods convert, translate, and represent their digitized content in terms of various (so far often implicit) structural and linguistic components. The results will enable (i) utilizing these resources for semi-automatic analysis and indexing of texts of relevant genres, in a multilingual setting, and (ii) pre-processing the data, for analysing motif sequences in folktale plots. We plan to publish the resulting data, which can be made available in the Linked Open Data (LOD) framework.

    Content strategies of the future: Between games and Stories - Crossroads for the video game industry2008Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The video game industry is the combination of two worlds: technology (IT) and show-biz/media/cultural industries. This paper explores this tension by exposing the shortcomings of the culture economics perspective and its lack of understanding for the unique characteristics of the video game medium, thus subsequently proposing a deeper analysis of the medium by turning to literary theoretical perspectives on games, such as ludology and narratology. Due the lack of technological dimensions in its theoretical framework, narratology is deemed less fruitful as an analytical tool and ludology is preferred. Ludology, with Espen Aarseth's cybertext theory elucidates aspects of "interactivity ", author-medium-reader power relations and the mechanical organization of textual machines, which provides perspectives on practice in the video game industry.

    Among pasta-loving mafiosos, drug-selling Columbians and noodle-eating triads: Race, humour and interactive ethics in Grand Theft Auto III2005Inngår i: Proceedings of DiGRA 2005 Conference: Changing Views - Worlds in Play, 2005Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the intersection of race, humour and interactivity in Grand Theft Auto 3. We argue that video games not only diffuse cultural and symbolic meanings, but also provide new loci for reflection and critique of issues of inter alia race. Two different analytical perspectives are juxtaposed when studying racial issues of GTA3. The first perspective is Critical Race Theory (CRT). The second perspective derives from the phthonic and incongruity theory of humour (Morreall 1986). We will argue that the CRT perspective is consistent with the phthonic theory of humour, while the incongruity theory goes beyond CRT presenting a novel way of interpreting games. This theoretical framework is applied when analysing the controversial game GTA3. By presenting stereotypical images of race in GTA3 as humorous, the player is provided with cues for reflecting and evaluating his/her own perspectives on issues of race.

    Half-Naked yet Empowered?:  Spartacus (2010-) (Ancient) Gender Equality in Contemporary Television2013Inngår i: 12th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Social Sciences, Honolulu Hawaii, 2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Spartacus is attested in several ancient sources (Plutarch, Appian, and Florus) as the leader of a rebellion against the Roman Republic (73 to 71 BC). Despite that none of Spartacus' historical representations overtly suggest that he aimed at reforming Roman society by abolishing slavery and promoting equality, he has inspired a number of intellectuals across times and cultures as a egalitarian leader. Marx, in the Manchester letter to Engels (1861), considered him a real representative of the ancient 'proletariat’ and members of the German Spartacus League, a forerunner of the Communist Party of Germany. In contemporary popular culture, the most recent reception of the tale of Spartacus is the US Television series Spartacus: Blood and 

    Sand (premiered on Starz in: 2010- followed by a late prequel and a sequel), where he is also portrayed as a just and egalitarian leader.

    In this paper, I will discuss how Spartacus (2010-) promotes social and gender equality as an ancient virtue within a contemporary context. Unlike Spartacus’ historical and other cinematic representations, women play a major role in the 2010- TV series either as slaves that join the rebellion, inspired by the egalitarian Thracian slave-leader, or wealthy Romans who oppose him. Despite incidental nudity, scenes of a sexual and violent nature, a TV MA rating for graphic violence, and strong sexual content in overexposed video stylization, I will show that female characters evolve from the older sexualized and objectified females of gladiatorial Sword and Sandals (e.g. Warrior and the Slave Girl: 1958) to strong and brave action heroines. Finally, I will discuss how the 2010- TV series reflects upon the impact of equality and feminism in the portrayal of the ancient world in our contemporary popular culture.

    Hot (water) topics: The formation of an energy issue at home2017Inngår i: eceee Summer Study 2017: Consumption, efficiency and limits / [ed] Therese Laitinen Lindström, Ylva Blume & Margareta Regebro, 2017, 2069-2074 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Domestic use of hot water has been identified as an urgent energy issue to address. In this paper, results from focus group interviews, with both residents and staff members, are presented. Results show that hot tap water use is differently shaped depending on whether you are a resident or a staff member. One thing in common was that in the focus groups it was difficult to separate hot tap water use from water use in general. Hot tap water use was not distinguished from use of cold tap water. To explore the issue further, the research on hot water was taken to residents’ homes and through more in-depth qualitative methods by an artist a formation process was started. Residents started to share more detailed stories about how they lived their everyday life in kitchens and bathrooms. These stories contain childhood memories and how past experience has shaped their water use and consequently their energy use patterns. The formation of this topic continued and in the artist’s interpretation of the data, three different artefacts became important: the sink, tub and toilet. These artefacts were placed in a river in the centre of a city as part of an audio walk with voices from the residents talking about their use of water. The exhibition was available during summer 2016 and the audio walk with the voices are planned to be reused and part of an exhibition in 2017.

    Art music as transnational practices2010Inngår i: 15th Nordic Migration Research Conference Global Challenges - Local Responses. The Book of programme and abstracts / [ed] Povrzanović Frykman, Maja, Malmö: Malmö University Electronic Publishing, www.mah.se/muep , 2010, 72- s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It is common to map culture onto socially bounded entities such as ethnic groups and nation-states. This conception spills over to migrants and diasporas – the Gurungs have Gurung culture, the Greeks have Greek culture, the Kurdish diaspora has Kurdish culture. This paper looks at exactly the opposite. We will analyze art music as a unified transnational practice that, however, is maintained by a group of people that is fragmented both socially and – except for the common allegiance to their musical art – culturally. They speak different languages, have different religions, belong to different nations. The analysis draws upon two different traditions of transnationalism in art music: Western ”classical music” and Southasian shastriya sangit. Both are constituted within multiple fields interconnected by flows of both people and cultural goods, making up translocal opportunity structures. And moreover, these two cases give historical depth to our understanding of transnational practice: they were, so to say, transnational long before the era of the nation-state.

    Conservation under Occupation in the Historic City of Nablus2010Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on Foucault’s conceptualisation of power - as a set of actions performed upon other actions andreactions - this article aims to understand the mechanisms behind cultural conservation where nexus ofconflictual powers is particular densified as an effect of both an occupation force and the internationalcommunity intervention. Thereby, it examines the way discourses of cultural meanings are formed,transformed and correlated influenced by the multiple powers involved in the politics of cultural conservation.The link between discourse and power is illustrated through a particular enactment of a concrete research inwhich the Historic Centre of Nablus in Palestine is identified as a case. Conflict of power relations and interestsis a universal question however it becomes a unique phenomenon when happening in an occupied society. Thisarticle argues that occupation force, local resistance and international community interventions have exposedthe cultural resources of the Palestinian Historic centres to ‘concentrated’ processes of both ‘destruction’ and‘conservation’. Understanding the current mechanisms behind cultural conservation may therefore explorepossible ways for locally-sensitive cultural conservation.

    CULTURE AND PLANNING FOR CHANGE AND CONTINUITY: 2009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This  paper  aims  to  examine  the  value  of  cultural  considerations  in  urban  planning  and  to contribute to the current discussion on Botswana’s planning system. ‘Integrated Conservation’ and  ‘Cultural Planning’,  as  two dominant  international  streams  on  culture  and planning,  are compared with  the  local context of Botswana  to  identify possibilities and  challenges  for  the planning review. The Town and Country Planning Act, in addition to two case study areas, is presented  to  highlight  the Botswanan  context. The  results  reveal  a distinct  need  for  a  shift from  ‘planning  for  culture’  to  ‘cultural  institutionalisation’,  where  the  traditional  division between  ‘bottom-up’ and  ‘top-down’ urban development  tendencies  is  challenged  to allow a wider scale of actors and interests to interact deliberately rather than engage.

    Fluid Identities and the Use of History: The Northern Lights Route and the Writings of Bengt Pohjanen2007Inngår i: Inter: A European Cultural Studies Conference in Sweden 11-13 June 2007, 2007, 227-242 s.Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The article highlights the impact of agency and context in analyses of the theme of identification in texts produced on the levels of aesthetics, ethnic mobilisation, region-building and the European project. The connection between cultural heritage and identity is discussed with examples which elucidate the role of literature in nation-building in the period of modernity and industrialisation. Texts by the Tornedalian author Bengt Pohjanen are foregrounded as part of the ethnic revival emerging in the nineteen-eighties. Swedish examples of the use of history are contrasted against the discourse of the Council of Europe’s Cultural Routes which is part of a supranational project aiming at the construction of a European identity in the political project of preparing the ground for European citizenship. The conclusion presented is that it is not viable to produce a “European identity cultural package” which runs the risk of conflating differences related to aspects such as language, ethnicity, gender, worldview and religion. Identities are fluid, they exist on various levels and shift in response to changing contexts. Sometimes they develop in overlapping discourses. One way of dealing with this is to think of identification as a constant negotiation of symbolic and concrete borders.

    In the Middle of Modernisation: The Dance Heritage and the Enthusiasts2017Inngår i: Dance, senses, urban contexts: dance and the senses - dancing and dance cultures in urban contexts / [ed] Stepputat, K, Shaker Verlag, 2017, 150-156 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the early 20th century, many traditional dances fell out of use in Sweden. Today's folk dancing is to a great extent a revived tradition, and the result of enthusiasts documenting and reconstructing old dances. The processes leading to a revived dance tradition are complex and have had a great impact on how the dances are performed and embodied today. Nowadays, folk dancing in Sweden is in many ways an urban phenomenon, but with roots in the countryside. A number of local dance variants have gained national spread, in part turning into archetypes. Despite an emphasis on geographical differences, traditional dance and music constitute one national subculture rather than several regional ones.

    Climate for Care and Conservation of Ottoman Artefacts in Northern Europe2011Inngår i: Clima 2010 : 9-12 May, Antalya : 10 th REHVA WORLD CONGRESS: Sustainable Energy Use in Buildings, 2011Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden has had a long lasting connection with the Ottoman Empire. From the Viking age to the 18th century warfare and cooperation has been ongoing. Even the Silk Road was a time extended to the Baltic. That means 1000 years of cultural contacts. After the battle at Mohacs in Hungary 1687, Swedish soldiers and officers looted the Ottoman war baggage. A great number of objects, today artefacts, were transported to Sweden. Among them, in the collection of Skokloster Castle, we will today find tents with carpets, used by high ranking Ottoman officers as well as high-tech composite bows used by cavalry soldiers. This paper discusses why the mentioned textiles and wooden objects, made for use in the Mediterranean climate, has survived so well for more than 300 years in the Baltic climate far north in Europe.

    Skokloster Castle is a heavy stone and brick building without any climatisation. The castle has only open fireplaces and ovens and they have not been used for the last 300 years. There is no electric lighting installed why visitors have to admire the 17th century interior design and the large paintings collection in daylight, summertime only. We have here a very good example of preventive conservation by passive means. The main philosophy of the conservators and curators working at Skokloster Castle with the large collection (50 000 items) is to “let it rest in peace”. The indoor climate at Skokloster castle has been under observation for generations. The castle and its collections were turned into an entailed estate already in 1701 by the owner Margareta Juliana Wrangel, the oldest daughter and heir of the founder of Skokloster castle. This was for tax reasons but also to preserve the memory of her great father, the fieldmarchal. That means that by law the proprietors had to write detailed inventories for every generation of owners. Thus today´s conservators and curators have a detailed history of the preservation climate and the conditions of every object in the collection. The indoor climate follows the outdoor over the season. Stormy weather increases the air infiltration and disturbs the stable indoor climate. Subsequently warm summers may create high relative humidity which is a risk for growing mould. Never- theless the mayor part of the collection is in good condition. Today we have year long observations of temperature, relative humidity and air change rate in the castle, which will be presented and discussed in the paper.

    This paper intends to invite to a discussion of best preventive climate and conservation actions having the coming climate change in mind.

    Cross-Cultural Communication in Next Generation Language Learning: A Case Study of Chinese as a Foreign Language2011Inngår i: Proceedings of the Young Scholar Award Competition for the International Conference on Chinese Language Learning and Teaching in the Digital Age, Hong Kong: The Hong Kong Institute of Education , 2011, , 19 s.1-16 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Along with the growth of globalization, the importance of developing student’s competence of cross-cultural communication have been emphasized constantly in foreign language education. When a teacher, who is a native Chinese speaker, teaches Chinese as a foreign language to foreign students, the whole process is thus not just “teaching a foreign language”, but also a “cross-culture communication”. In China, the concept of cross-culture communication did not draw much attention in teaching Chinese as foreign language until the 1980s, when a controversial and still ongoing debate started. Despite there are already some generally accepted conclusions that cross-cultural communication approach should be emphasized and implemented in teaching Chinese as foreign language, Chinese is still mostly taught to foreigners in the traditional way owing to the lack of empirical work, resources and supports. Therefore, there is an urgent need for research of implementing the cross-cultural communication approach in both teaching and learning Chinese as a foreign language.

    Chinese as a foreign language is now available in both traditional and distance modes. In the last few years, global demand for learning Chinese as a foreign language has been dramatically increasing. And since the traditional mode of education cannot satisfy specific needs of some students, a new generation of distance education, supported by the fast maturing videoconferencing software and the web-based learning in general, generates new alternatives and possibilities for both teaching and learning Chinese as a foreign language. However, this development also constitutes specific challenges for both teachers and students.

    With respond to the challenges, a trial of an action research was designed to investigate scope of possibilities (and their limitations) in implementing cross-cultural communication approach into web-based courses of Chinese as a foreign language. The research brought together two areas of current research on teaching foreign languages: (1) the cross-cultural communication perspective and (2) the distance/internet-based education.

    Ridiculing suffering on YouTube: digital parodies of Emo style2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Numerous YouTube videos represent and comment on self-injury, as evidenced by a search for this term which returns about 123 000 results (June 6, 2014). In previous studies, we have explored how suffering, embodiment and gender are performed in such personal videos through the use of digital technology and the YouTube platform in particular (Johansson 2013, Sternudd and Johansson forthcoming, Johansson & Sternudd in press). There is, however, one category of video clips that deserves further discussion: those that parody self-injury videos and ridicule people who self-injure through imitation and trivialization.

    In this paper, we analyse a number of such video parodies in order to demonstrate how humour is used to convey norms and ideas regarding mental suffering and gender. The existence of parodies implies that there is in fact a recognizable genre of self-injury videos to parody. Mockery, then, is not only aimed at self-injury as an embodied performance of mental suffering, but also at its digital display which tend to be ridiculed as mere attention-seeking. Furthermore, jokes often allude to gender stereotypes, revealing how performances of mental suffering are denigrated when associated with young femininity. Hence, we aim to discuss what these parodies tell us about the wider social and cultural context of suffering and about the relation between conceptualizations of suffering and constructions of community. To conclude, we suggest that humour in this context may be seen as transgressive insofar as it jokes about a controversial topic – suffering – and insofar as it is reappropriated or articulated by the very individuals who self-harm, but that the videos largely reinforce hegemonic ideas and the stigmatization of individuals who already suffer.

    Tillämpning av urfolkskunskap i naturresursförvaltning: Lärdomar från samförvaltningen av småviltsjakt i Ammarnäs2012Inngår i: Mindings:Co-Constituting Indigenous/Academic/Artistic Knowledges and Understandings of Land, Water-, Body-, and Lab-scapes, Uppsala University, October 10-12, 2012 / [ed] May-Britt Öhman, Uppsala: Centre for Gender Research , 2012Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur kan vi bäst förvalta våra naturresurser? På senare tid har integreringen av urfolkskunskap lyfts fram som betydelsefull för framgångsrik naturresursförvaltning därför att den anses främja biologisk mångfald, hållbar utveckling och tillvaratagandet av urfolks rättigheter till land och vatten. Ett exempel på en lyckad sådan satsning är samförvaltningen av småviltsjakt i Ammarnäs, som inleddes som ett försöksprojekt 2006 och permanentades 2010.  Jag studerade verksamheten under ett år, 2011-2012. Nyckelaktörer i samförvaltningen intervjuades och en fältstudie genomfördes i Ammarnäs, augusti 2012.

    Bakgrunden till samförvaltningen var att Sverige år 1993 öppnade upp småviltsjakten för allmänheten på statens mark ovan odlingsgränsen. Jakten orsakade stora störningar för renskötseln i Ammarnäs då antalet småviltjägare ökade drastiskt i området. För att skapa betesro för renarna fick en lokal grupp bestående av tre personer - en representant för jägarkåren och två representanter från Grans och Rans samebyar - det operativa ansvaret för förvaltningen. En grundförutsättning för att uppnå målet var att renskötarnas kunskaper togs tillvara, vilket också skedde.

    Ammarnäs är idag indelat i 66 mindre jaktområden. Områdena har naturliga gränser, ritade av renskötarna utifrån deras kunskaper om landskapet och renarnas vandringsmönster. En vecka innan varje jaktsäsong flyger Ammarnäsgruppen över jaktområdena för att lokalisera renarna och bedöma vilka områden som ska fredas (stängas av) respektive öppnas beroende på hur renarna antas vandra.  Bedömningarna görs framförallt utifrån renskötarnas kunskaper om hur renarnas vandringsmönster påverkas av bland annat betestillgång och vind-, temperatur-, snö- och insektsförhållanden. Under jaktens två första veckor, som är de mest intensiva under hela jaktsäsongen, följer Ammarnäsgruppen noga renarnas förflyttningar i distriktet för att snabbt kunna öppna eller stänga områden allteftersom renarna flyttar sig.

    Även om Ammarnäsprojektet kan beskrivas i termer av lyckad samförvaltning som tillvaratar urfolkskunskaper, finns det utvecklingsmöjligheter inom såväl samförvaltningen som förvaltningsforskningen.

    Renskötarnas möjligheter att tillämpa urfolkskunskap i samförvaltningen begränsades av de regler myndigheter på olika nivåer hade fastställt. Forskare inom fältet ”common pool resources” diskuterar hur maktfördelning mellan olika nivåer påverkar tillämpningen av lokal kunskap, men få har ägnat sig åt relationen mellan makt och urfolkskunskap. Genom att i framtiden kombinera teorier om common pool resources med teorier om urfolkskunskap skulle forskningen kunna öppna upp för spännande utvecklingsmöjligheter.

    Även genus och makt hänger ihop och bör därför alltid beaktas i naturresursforskning. Ammarnäsprojektet administrerades uteslutande av män. Frågan är vad som hade hänt om renskötande kvinnor hade involverats i förvaltningen? Hade det påverkat resursfördelningen och tillämpningen av urfolkskunskap? Tidigare forskning indikerar att könsfördelningen inom naturresursförvaltning påverkar den lokala makt- och resursfördelningen.

    Slutligen hänger makt och kunskap intimt samman. I min studie präglades Länsstyrelsen, som satte ramarna för samförvaltningen, av en positivistisk kunskapssyn som innebar att naturvetenskapliga, mätbara, objektiva kunskaper främjades i förvaltningen. Synsättet kan kontrasteras mot en mer hermeneutisk kunskapssyn, som ligger närmare renskötarnas kunskaper, och som kännetecknas av att vara tolkande till sin natur och betona vikten av att förstå och att se helheter för att kunna göra så rimliga tolkningar av verkligheten som möjligt. Det kan till exempel handla om att förstå effekterna av småviltsjakten för renar, marker och rennäring över hela året och inte enbart under jaktsäsong, eller om att studera de kumulativa effekterna av exempelvis småviltsjakt, utbyggnad av vatten-, vindkraft och gruvnäring för renskötarnas kunskapstillämpning. Naturresursforskningen har således mycket att vinna både på att mer aktivt involvera urfolk i forskningen och på att komplettera naturvetenskapliga teorier och metoder med hermeneutiska, såsom narratologi och etnologi, inte minst därför att urfolkskunskap utmärks av att ofta vara holistisk, komplex och tyst kunskap som är svår att uttrycka med ord.

    What are the colours of the words ‘Me’ and ‘Others’?2016Inngår i: AIC2016 Interim Meeting, Color In Urban Life : Images, Objects And Spaces, 2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    How do people from different cultures associate colours with certain words?

    A comparative study between Swedish and Nepalese subjects’ colour associations to 24 words.

    More and more people live in cities. Urban life provides us with a huge amount of information. Much of the information is visual and based on, or including colours. Urban people receive visual information almost all the time and have to quickly sort and evaluate the messages and judge if it is of importance to them. The perception of colour is immediate and therefore colours constitute important signals to us. But do colours mean the same thing to people living in Stockholm as they do to people in Kathmandu? 

    This paper describes a study into how a series of words can be associated with colours in two different cultures. The findings should be of interest for professionals and academics working in the remit of visual communication in different cultures. The aim of this research is to investigate if there are distinctive patterns - similarities and differences - in how subjects from two different cultures connect words with colours.

    The two countries represented in this study are located in different parts of the world (Europe and Asia), with different cultures and religious traditions. From each country there are two groups of subjects, one group is a general mix of people who are not working with colours in their professional life. Another group consists of students of art and design from the Linnaeus University and Kathmandu University. It will be possible to compare the answers from these two groups separately. The subjects speak and understand English well. They do not have any known colour defects and they are born and live in Sweden or Nepal. In the study, design students and laypersons (50 from Sweden and 50 from Nepal) were given 24 words in English. They were asked to match each word to a colour from a chart with 27 selected colours from the NCS system. The results will be presented with statistics and diagrams showing the chosen colours. The results will be analysed in terms of how coherent the answers are and potential patterns that emerge specific to the countries, and their cultural contexts.

    The words that are investigated are of different characters; some of them maybe have a more obvious connection to colours as the words ‘warm’ and ‘cold’. Others are more of a emotional character such as ‘sorrow’ and ‘happiness’ while others might be more subjective like the colours for the words ‘me’ and ‘others’. The 24 words tested in this study are warm, cold, sorrow, happiness, calm, upset, near, distant, young, old, feminine, masculine, fast, slow, strong, weak, false, true, cheap, expensive, friendly, dangerous, me and others.

    From the study it will also be possible to see if there are differences in the chosen colours related to the subjects’ sex, age, experience of colour and religion, The Nepalese subjects are most Hindu and Buddhists while the Swedish subjects are mostly Christians, although it is not known to what extent the subjects are actually religious practioners. The reason for doing this pilot study in Sweden and Nepal is that these two countries obviously differ in term of culture and religion

    This is a pilot study to explore the method and it is conducted in two different countries. With the experience of this study a lager study will be conducted in six more countries with various cultures and religious background in different parts of the world during 2016 and 2017.

    Climate control in historic buildings in Denmark2011Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In many historic buildings, conservation heating has been used to control the RH in winter. Heat pumps are much more energy efficient than direct electric heating, so this technology may be adapted for climate control. Dehumidification has not been regarded as appropriate for historic buildings due to poor regulation, but recent development in electronic hygrostats makes this technology an attractive alternative. The annual energy consumption for both control strategies was calculated from statistical meteorological data for Denmark. The most energy efficient control strategy is determined by the U-value of the building, the air exchange rate and the volume. For large buildings conservation heating with heat pump technology seems to be the most energy efficient, unless the thermal insulation is very poor. For small buildings dehumidification is more efficient unless the building is very leaky. The two strategies for climate control were tested in historic houses owned by the National Museum in Denmark and used for exhibition only in the summer season. Kommandørgården has an uncontrolled climate in summer due to open doors in the opening hours. In winter the RH is controlled to 60-70% by hygrostatic heating. Liselund is an 18th century mansion located in a romantic garden on the island Møn at the Baltic Sea. The house is open only for guided tours in the summer, and the RH is controlled all year by dehumidification.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces a virtual tour, Visit the Louvre, designed specifically to engage older adults in an immersive visit through part of the Louvre by a distant real-life guide. An initial diary study and a creative workshop were conducted to understand the needs and values of older adults and how to support participation to virtual museum visits with a video-based communication system. Preliminary results show that ‘virtual visitors’ experienced high levels of social and spatial presence; immersion and engagement were quite high independent of the level of interactivity of the guide, or the presence of others.

    Abstract [en]

    Metadata that serve as semantic markup, such as conceptual categories that describe the macrostructure of a plot in terms of actors and their mutual relationships, actions, and their ingredients annotated in folk narratives, are important additional resources of digital humanities research. Traditionally originating in structural analysis, in fairy tales they are called functions (Propp, 1968), whereas in myths – mythemes (Lévi-Strauss, 1955); a related, overarching type of content metadata is a folklore motif (Uther, 2004; Jason, 2000).In his influential study, Propp treated a corpus of tales in Afanas'ev's collection (Afanas'ev, 1945), establishing basic recurrent units of the plot ('functions'), such as Villainy, Liquidation of misfortune, Reward, or Test of Hero, and the combinations and sequences of elements employed to arrange them into moves.1 His aim was to describe the DNAlike structure of the magic tale sub-genre as a novel way to provide comparisons. As a start along the way to developing a story grammar, the Proppian model is relatively straightforward to formalize for computational semantic annotation, analysis, and generation of fairy tales. Our study describes an effort towards creating a comprehensive XML markup of fairy tales following Propp's functions, by an approach that integrates functional text annotation with grammatical markup in order to be used across text types, genres and languages. The Proppian fairy tale Markup Language (PftML) (Malec, 2001) is an annotation scheme that enables narrative function segmentation, based on hierarchically ordered textual content objects. We propose to extend PftML so that the scheme would additionally rely on linguistic information for the segmentation of texts into Proppian functions. Textual variation is an important phenomenon in folklore, it is thus beneficial to explicitly represent linguistic elements in computational resources that draw on this genre; current international initiatives also actively promote and aim to technically facilitate such integrated and standardized linguistic resources. We describe why and how explicit representation of grammatical phenomena in literary models can provide interdisciplinary benefits for the digital humanities research community. In two related fields of activities, we address the above as part of our ongoing activities in the CLARIN2 and AMICUS3 projects. CLARIN aims to contribute to humanities research by creating and recommending effective workflows using natural language processing tools and digital resources in scenarios where text-based research is conducted by humanities or social sciences scholars. AMICUS is interested in motif identification, in order to gain insight into higher-order correlations of functions and other content units in texts from the cultural heritage and scientific discourse domains. We expect significant synergies from their interaction with the PftML prototype.

    A catástrofe pós-colonial: ler António Lobo Antunes «à rebours»2014Inngår i: / [ed] Maria Graciete Besse et Mònica Güel, Paris, 2014, nr 15Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [fr]

    Le roman As Naus (Le retour des Caravelles) d’António Lobo Antunes propose une révision du passé historique portugais, en offrant une relecture de la Révolution du 25 avril 1974 comme événement traumatique et catastrophique. En effet, sur fond de guerre et de décolonisation africaine, l’auteur nous transmet une vision dysphorique du contexte révolutionnaire portugais, ceci en adoptant le point de vue des « retornados », ex-colons fuyant l’Afrique, revenant vers la mère Patrie : le Portugal. Nous assistons ainsi à une « navigation à contre-courant », celle où les « héros de jadis », relégués aux marges de la société portugaise, se transforment en personnages nomadiques et « border-line ». Dans ces conditions, l’espace des marges représente « l’envers du décor » de la société portugaise, un monde sens dessus dessous, où règnent la sauvagerie et l’abjection. C’est à travers ces motifs apocalyptiques que l’auteur touche à l’un des fondements de l’identité portugaise, à savoir, celle d’une grande Nation au centre d’un Empire.

    Literatura e Diáspora portuguesa em França: a história de um “entre-deux”2017Inngår i: Actas del IV Congreso Internacional SEEPLU – Cartografías del Portugués Cáceres, 11-13 noviembre 2015, Carceres (Spain), 2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [pt]

    A “literatura da diáspora portuguesa”, representada por autores como Olga Gonçalves, Maria Graciete Besse, Carlos Batista, Brigitte Paulino-Neto e, ultimamente, José Luís Peixoto, despertou, até estes últimos anos, muito pouco interesse certamente por razões ligadas ao facto de tal Literatura ser produzida por escritores recorrentemente definidos como representantes do “outro estranho” “tanto no país onde vivem como em Portugal” (Ana Paula Coutinho Mendes). No entanto, é porque as suas obras revelam desde já “uma dupla pertença”, uma duplicidade, que estas são capazes “de questionar e de reexaminar a identidade nacional, cultural e literária”. Com efeito, é através de modos narrativos e de pontos de vista diferentes (femininos/masculinos) que estes escritores expressam ao mesmo tempo o sofrimento provocado pelo exílio e o sentimento que o acompanha, o de “ser o outro”. Assim, paradoxalmente, encontramos nestes dois temas o que parece estar irremediavelmente ligado à identidade « histórica » portuguesa, isto é, a de um povo cuja imagem jamais é definida como o da Epopeia das Descobertas mas como o do “entre-deux” e da hibridez. Finalmente, estas representações e configurações identitárias não deixam de lembrar a « posição semi-periférica » (Boaventura de Sousa Santos) de Portugal na Europa, quer dizer um país marcado por uma posição intermediária e subalterna (G. Spivak).

    Muntlig och skriftlig tradering av medeltida ballader2008Inngår i: 15th Nordic Congress of Musicology: Voicing - Sounding – Visualizing, Norwegian Society of Musicology , 2008, 1- s.Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)

    Muntlig och skriftlig tradering av medeltida ballader

    Lundquists Musikhandel i Stockholm utgav 1864 sångboken 108 en- och två-stämmiga choraler, folkvisor m.m …[för] elementar-läroverk och folkskolor. Den innehåller bla texter och melodier till 14 medeltida ballader. Vad innebär det att visor som tidigare främst varit kända i muntlig tradition spreds i massform på detta sätt? Tidigare balladforskningen har främst intresserat sig för den fixering som skedde då medeltida ballader från 1600-talet började spridas genom skillingtryck. Att även skolsångböcker tidigt innehöll ballader har sällan uppmärksammats. Många upptecknare var omedvetna om den konservering av texter och melodier som redan hade skett genom skillingtryck och skolsångböcker. Informanternas balladframföranden, som föreföll ske direkt ur minnet, togs som bevis för att det rörde sig om en muntlig tradition. I mitt inlägg prövar jag om resultaten i den nyaste forskningen kring musik och minneshantering i medeltidens västerländska musikpraxis, som utvecklats av bl a Ann-Marie Busse Berger (Medieval Music and the Art of Memory, 2005), är relevant för balladforskningen. Berger visar övertygande att spridningen av läs- och skrivkunnighet under medeltiden inte innebar att den muntliga kulturen försvann. Nästan alla framföranden av musik skedde långt in i modern tid utan stöd av noter. Minneskonsten hölls istället levande med hjälp av nya tekniker som kunde utvecklas därför att skrivna källor fanns bevarade. Dessa gjorde det möjligt att kontrollera att man mindes rätt. Resultatet blev en minneskonst som memorerade texter och musik exakt. I den muntliga balladkulturen hanterade traditionsbärarna stoffet mycket friare. Förmågan att fritt omskapa och lägga till aktörer och scener uppskattades. Genom att studera alla kända varianter av ett antal ballader utifrån vetskapen om hur en genuin muntlig tradition utvecklas och förändras bör det vara möjligt att säga något om den påverkan som skriftlig dokumentation haft på ballader som tecknats upp under de senaste århundradena.

    From combating to supporting pop music. The paradox of municipal music education in Sweden 1940 to 20002009Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    From combating to supporting pop music. The paradox of municipal music education in Sweden 1940 to 2000Lindberg, BoelSchool of HumanitiesVäxjö universityVäxjö, SwedenOlofsson, GunnarSchool of Social SciencesVäxjö universityVäxjö, SwedenKeywordsHagstrom's music, combating popular music, Private music education, public music education, hegemonic cultural adaptationIn 1997 Sweden was the third biggest exporter of popular music in the world. This astonishing fact has often been explained as being the result of the large investments in municipal music schools that took place in Sweden from 1940. The explanation holds an interesting paradox. Most municipal music schools began with the aim to teach young people appreciate more valuable music (i.e. classical) than the popular music of the entertainment industry. Around 1940 there was a large debate on the "Dance-floor-misery". Christians and conservatives attacked the public amusements available in abundance, arguing that they led to moral shallowness among the youth. It was especially young people's contact with dance and popular music offered in open-air dance-floors and dance-pavilions that caused most harm. The debate began in 1938 with an official letter to the Government from the bishop of Växjö. It led to the forming of a Royal committee assigned to find ways to decontaminate the unsatisfactory state of the entertainment industry. In Växjö the Church and the municipality joined forces forming a Youth Council. Its main achievement was to start a music school in 1947. During the 1970s it became one of the most successful in Sweden, thanks to its tolerant views on modern genres and instruments used in popular music. By 1980 it had driven a once prosperous music school run by the town's largest music shop out of business. This school ? Hagstrom's music school ? had started in 1944. Its main aim was to meet the demand for education on instruments like accordion, guitar, saxophone, keyboard and drums, instruments used in popular dance-music.The Växjö case elucidates the process that led the once detested popular music to become accepted and fully incorporated into the curricula of the municipal music schools. This process will be linked to the thesis that a hegemonic culture has somehow to adopt prevailing views and tastes among the dominated in order to survive (cf. Gramsci, Williams).

    Contradicting Cultural Policy: A comparative study of the cultural policy of the Nordic radical right.2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Culture is a central concept for the Nordic radical right parties, but little research has been done on the cultural policy of the parties. This article is a comparative overview of the party programs of four Nordic radical right parties during the latest decade. It relates the cultural policies of the radical right to the predominantly welfare-based corporatist cultural policy of the Nordic countries. Through a discursive policy analysis two problem representations are found: That multiculturalism is seen as a threat against national culture and that public funding is seen as a threat against freedom. The parties share a common understanding of cultural policy, with minor differences. There is an underlying conflict in the discourse: While the parties argue that the political governance of art needs to be limited, they are, at the same time, deeply involved in how cultural expressions and cultural life should be defined.
