    Kultur i förändring: En vidgad syn på kultursektorn och dess roll för samhället2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    How can you do a right measurement of culture as well as with other social sectors and with what can culture contribute when it comes to a town´s development? We found out that in Linköping the regional federation Ostsam recently (2005) started mapping the region's creative centers in order to look into the spreading of the culture in the county, and then use the uniqueness of the culture as an advantage in society- planning contexts. The reason was that both municipal - and State directions detected that the culture has a broader importance when it comes to building up society and infrastructure than earlier considered. This is called Cultural planning and is the foundation- method that Östsam used when working with their new projekt The creative sector. The outcome of the Östsam study resulted in an exciting study basis to work further on with and to examine through own demarcations and directions.

    This research manages the matter of the creative sector as an extension to the cultural sector. Our aim with this report is to find out the concept of the creative sector, what it stands for, and also to look into how the creative sector runs in practice.

    Fristående gymnasieskolor och skolbibliotek: En kvalitativ studie av fristående gymnasieskolors inställning till skolbiblioteksservice och undervisning i informationssökning2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 80 poäng / 120 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this study is to examine what kind of support there is for school libraries at the selected independent upper secondary schools and how these schools ensure that libraryservices is available to their students and their teachers. The purpose is also to examine what attitudes the administrators of the schools have to school libraries and teaching in information seeking. A qualitative method with interviews was used to fulfil the purpose. As a theoretical basis of the study Loertschers taxonomies of the school library media program and Limbergs three levels of pedagogic research were used and the interviews were analysed with these two theoretical frameworks as a background. The result of the study showed that neither one of the three examinated schools has a school library which means that they use the public library instead. The problematic area is the lack of rules within the school library field and the fact that the independent schools do not show any interest of cooperating with the public library. The conclusion is probably to make an agreement between the schools and the public library and to make the administrators literate about the positive effects which come out of a well provided school library.

    Explicit eller tyst kunskap – lärande mellan projekt i kommunal sektor: Kunskapsprocesser i kommunala projekt2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Olika forskningsinitiativ har belyst vikten av att lära både i och mellan projekt, vilket medför att hela organisationen gynnas av lärande erfarenheter i slutändan. Lärande i och mellan projekt är således en kritisk framgångsfaktor för lyckade projekt i framtiden. Denna uppsats har som ambition att undersöka kunskapspro-cesser i och mellan kommunala projekt, med emfas på huruvida dessa processer skiljer sig mellan lyckade eller misslyckade projekt. M.h.a. en kvalitativ-deduktiv fallstudie, framkom det att det finns vissa skillnader på formaliseringen baserat på projektresultatet. Lyckade projekt har en större tendens att explicitgöras genom någon form av dokumentation, m.h.a. internaliserings- externaliserings- eller kombinationsprocesser.

    Aktivt åldrande: att styrketräna som pensionär2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The essay is about pensioners who are working out at a gym. My starting point is the research program "Culture of ageing” and the theory that pensioners in the post- and late modern society conquer new potential areas. I am studying the meeting between pensioners and the gym. How the pensioners conquer the gym, relate to their training and what makes them stay after the first introduction. The essay also touches on how the gym profiles themselves in their marketing and adapt at the equipment and training environment to meet pensioners' needs.

    The essay also touches on how previous research, social norms and pensioner organizations, have influence on decisions and choices about the gym work out of pensioners. Individual discretion against creation of norms and perceptions of a good old age.

    Aging actively is a standard but this standard is in an ongoing negotiation of an ever faster-accelerating process.

    Of chaos and internal fire: the quest for nothingness by lyrical manifestations of re-interpreted Gnostic thought2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This essay researches the prevalence of Gnostic influences in contemporary music lyrics, more exclusively within the context of the extreme metal scene. A resurgence of such topics has also been evident in contemporary music; not surprisingly, as music in general is part of the foundations of culture, and in a wider aspect, of society at large. The essay is performed using a hermeneutic method, interpreting music lyrics and discussing them from a background of cultural and religious theory. The purposes of researching the influences of Gnosticism in this environment are to determine the presence of Gnostic thought in extreme metal lyrics, research the eventual re-interpretations of historical sources of Gnosticism, and to discuss the acknowledged Gnostic influences in the displayed art form in a contemporary cultural perspective, related to cultural aspects such as secularization, modernity and globalization.

    Sources include music lyrics appropriate to the subject matter at hand as well as previously published interviews.

    The results of the investigation demonstrate that there are multiple interpretations of Gnostic thought apparent in extreme metal lyrics, varying from slight re-interpretations to more extensive ones, as apparent in what is identified as a chaos-gnostic current. The Gnostic material has in the latter scenario been integrated into an originally satanic worldview and as a result has become a major part of the chaos-gnostic belief system. The chaos-gnostic current has appeared in a highly secular surrounding, and the results of the essay propose that a secular surrounding can breed elements of trangression within individuals, leading to the resurgence of oppositional counter-cultural characteristics and an awakening of alternative spirituality with oppositional overtones.

    Spiritually uncontrolled art: exploring aesthetics of evil in contemporary music2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates interpretations of evil as expressed in contemporary music, focusing mainly on lyrics in contemporary popular music. The purpose is to analyze whether there is acertain aesthetic embracing of risk and innovation on display when discussing such subject matters, and to relate such aesthetic connotations to cultural and religious aspects.

    Lyrical interpretations of evil in a musical context appear to be existent in different forms andare in various ways attempts to integrate the existence of evil acts, as leading to suffering and pain, by incorporating such themes into lyrical material.

    There appears to be a possible aesthetic embraced when artists are advocating evil acts, however, not totally separable from the aesthetics of the extreme metal scene. Such forms of creative practice appear as reliant on the dialectic between historical perceptions of morality,modern society as globalized, segmented and restructured and the reoccurrence of religion in a secularized perspective.

    Themes regarding evil appear in this form of aesthetic in different ways to traditional discourse; making use of historical and contemporary images of evil and portraying them as desirable in various ways. In some instances such creative release is also linked to religious belief and practise, making the artistic performance equivalent of a transcendental event.

    Utbildningsnämndens arkiv: En del av det moderna samhället som har gått till historien2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is based on the work of arranging and making an inventory for an archive consisting of records from the Board of Education (Utbildningsnämnden) within the administration of the County Council in Uppsala, Sweden. This archive is kept at the County Councils Archives in Uppsala where I have done the work. I have documented the process and discussed the complex of problems relating to it. In this particular case the issue of limitation of the office of origin and the respect of the fonds, or the principle of provenance, have been of interest. This is due to the fact that the records had been rearranged and mixed with records with other origin related to the Board of Education. Records from the early existence of the board have previously been arranged and an inventory had been made. This earlier work covered the period of 1971-1978, when the board of education had a secretariat.

    The aim of the work was to arrange the records of the board during the period of 1979-1997. After this period the board ended being an independent body. With support from theories of respect of fonds my conclusion is that the Board of Education is a coherent office of origin for the fonds during its entire period of existence dur - ing the years 1971-1997. I decided to make the first inventory a part of the new one in order to keep a logical continuity of the records and the inventory. Creating a subordinate archive with its own inventory would make the whole seem badly arranged and complicate the finding of records. Based on the respect of fonds I used the previous inventory to a large extent. The knowledge and understanding I gained thanks to the fact that I was able see the complete fonds made me do some changes. The archive consist of files based on journals to a large ex - tent, which makes a large part of the records easy to find.

    The work in combination with the essay constitutes my one year master’s thesis in archival science.

    Leufsta Bruksarkiv: En vägledning2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis serves as a guide to the holdings of Leufsta Bruksarkiv, a small archival institution situated at a former ironworks in Lövstabruk on the east coast of Sweden. The holdings stem from a period of advanced iron manufacturing in Sweden, from the mid-17th century to the first decades of the 20th century. The holdings consists foremost of bookkeeping, but we also find documents dealing with judicial matters, maps and blueprints.  

    During the 17th century Lövsta bruk (also Leufsta bruk) became the largest manufacturer of iron in Sweden. Louis de Geer, a Dutch businessman who is sometimes referred to as the father of Swedish industry, was involved in the ironworks already in 1626 and took over the ownership of the facility 1643. He developed a new order in Swedish iron manufacturing by bringing workforces to Lövsta from his native region of Wallonia, today a part of Belgium. Leufsta Bruksarkiv holds records from several ironworks in the region that all have a relation to Lövsta bruk or Gimo bruk – another big facility related to the de Geer family. The relationship between these ironworks is described in the guide.

    The bookkeeping shows a consistency and a richness of detail, providing an insight into the life and labour at the ironworks. The books are also a source for genealogical research and research on estates and villages in the region. Research into the judicial records, amongst which regulations of properties and ownership can be found, may help those who seek to trace the transformation of the area or the history of a specific estate. The historical maps provide a further complement in such matters.

    The guide will provide an aid for visitors and help recognize what information can be drawn out of the records. It also aims to situate the holdings in its historical context by drawing the larger picture of the de Geerian dynasty and the process of iron manufacturing, as well as discussing the vocabulary found in the documents.  

    This is a one year master’s thesis in Archival Science.

    Ett skepp kommer lastat med fyra förmågor och ett central innehåll i ämnet idrott och hälsa för årskurserna F-6: En intervjustudie om lärares uppfattning av kursplanen för idrott och hälsa i Lgr 112014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur lärare i ämnet idrott och hälsa realiserar och transformerar de förmågor eleverna genom undervisningen syftar att utveckla samt vad införandet av ett centralt innehåll inneburit för dem i yrket. Till detta finns tre frågeställningar; hur tolkar lärare i idrott och hälsa ämnet idrott och hälsas förmågor i Lgr 11, hur undervisar lärare i idrott och hälsa utifrån ämnet idrott och hälsas förmågor i Lgr 11 och hur uppfattar lärare i idrott och hälsa ämnet idrott och hälsas centrala innehåll i Lgr 11. Som metod har intervjuer använts.

    Resultaten visar att lärare i ämnet idrott och hälsa tolkar och undervisar utifrån ämnets förmågor på olika sätt. Gällande det centrala innehållet så har det bland flertalet lärare inneburit struktur och tydlighet och i enstaka fall inget nytt. Slutsatsen av undersökningen är således att de förmågor som formuleras i ämnet idrott och hälsa transformeras och realiseras på olika sätt och att det centrala innehållet tillfört tydlighet och struktur i vissa fall och i andra fall inte.

    Nytt land, nytt liv?: En etnologisk studie av flyktingars berättelser om formandet av tillvaron i samband med migration2005Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie har varit att undersöka de val, inslag och strategier som präglar nyanlända flyktingars vardag. För att kunna uppfylla syftet har fyra flyktingar intervjuats och uppsatsens disposition har strukturerats efter det som de upplevt som relevanta inslag i vardagen. Uppsatsens teoretiska ram är fenomenologisk, där fokus läggs på studiet av individers dagliga liv och den kunskap som styr utformningen av det. Materialet visar att informanterna trots skilda personligheter, olika förflutet och skild etnisk bakgrund skildrar vardagen på liknande sätt. De likartade upplevelserna visar på att tillvaron till stor del ordnas utifrån de valmöjligheter som samhället erbjuder och att utformandet av den personliga livsplanen struktureras efter dessa.

    Through a media lens – The Crimean Crisis: A Discourse Analysis of Media Perspectives on the New Crimean Crisis2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The Aim of this essay is to study how the Crimean Crisis is being portrayed in international newspapers of Frankfurter Allgemeine, The New York Times and Pravda. The time period for the study is the 25th of February until the 30th of April in the spring of 2014. To concretize the aim 3 questions were formulated; how different discourses are formed in the material, how is Russia’s involvement in the conflict and its views portrayed in the newspapers and how does the stereotyping through metaphors, metonymies and binary oppositions help the construction of Russia as “the other” in this conflict. The Methods chosen to investigate these questions were Laclau & Mouffes Discourse Analysis combined with linguistic tools such as metaphors and binary oppositions. The Theories chosen to support the method was Laclau & Mouffes discourse theory and linguistic theory.

    The Results have portrayed different perspectives on the discourse of the conflict, each of which also could be representative for the different sides in the conflict. One nodal point, mainly pushed forward by Western actors and Western media, was one of Invasion. Russian actors and eastern media mainly pushed forward another nodal point, one that emphasised protection rather than invasion in the discourse of the conflict in Crimea. Western Media together with Western Actors suggested strong connections to Russia when discussing the military troops active in Crimea whereas Russia initially claimed no part in it, but later developed a nodal point of protectionism when that claim no longer could be defended. Russia has in many instances been portrayed as aggressive or bad which has continued to build upon the picture of Russia as the “bad other” - the binary opposition to the good west. Indications has also been found that conflict, besides national interests, can be based on a different view of democracy where the West implies that the development in Ukraine is a step towards a free democracy, while Russia who values constitutional order rather sees the development as a fascist coup against a legit government.

    Myten som argumentationsbas: Om hur man övertygar någon som ser världen på ett annat sätt2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    I "Myten som argumentationsbas" har jag utgått från de perspektiv som finns inom den retoriska kunskapstraditionen. Utifrån dessa perspektiv har jag sökt svar på frågeställningen: Hur övertygar man någon som ser världen på ett annat sätt?

    Studien resulterade i en modell för övertygande som fokuserar på etablerandet av en gemensam argumentationsbas mellan retorn och den andre. I samband med bearbetningen av denna modell prövade jag om Roland Barthes idé om myten kunde användas för att ge en fördjupad förståelse för vad en retorisk argumentationsbas är. Svaret på den frågeställningen blev ett tydligt: Ja.

    Barthes teori om myten stämde väl överens med den retoriska kunskapstraditionen, dess teoretiska grund kunde bidra till en förbättrad förståelse av enskilda övertygandeprocesser och teorin visade dessutom på möjliga retoriska strategier för att övertyga en person som ser världen på ett annat sätt.

    Utöver detta kunde jag även visa hur myten fungerade som ett komplement till det etablerade retoriska begreppet doxa. Detta genom att myten är partikulär och kan kopplas till specifika fenomen, medan doxan är mer generell. Myten som teoretiskt perspektiv visade sig därmed vara väl lämpat för att retoriskt förklara argumentationsbasens funktion i enskilda övertygandeprocesser. I denna studie beläggs således  att Barthes idé om myten har något att tillföra den retoriska kunskapsteorin.

    Oligarkins järnlag: om demokrati i en frivilligorganisation2005Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Är alla organisationers öde att utvecklas mot oligarki även då syftet är att de ska drivas demokratiskt och huvudsakligen på frivillig basis? Robert Michels, i sitt kända arbete från 1911 om organisationer och demokrati – Zur Soziologie des Parteiwesens in der modernen Demokratie – talar om oligarkins järnlag. En växande organisation ökar behovet av anställda - organisationen professionaliseras. Anställda får ett kunskapsövertag gentemot de frivilligt arbetande vilket genererar en handlingsfrihet och ett maktövertag. Medlemmar betraktas som mindre kompetenta vilket gör

    det legitimt för ledningen att dominerar, styra och ta egna beslut. Vid konflikter väger ledningens ord tyngre – organisationen har utvecklats till ett fåtalsvälde. Michels studie genomfördes för snart hundra år sedan. Idenna uppsats undersöks en av agensfrivilligorganisationer – Förbundet djurens rätt.Genom deltagande och reflekterande observation, intervjuer,genomgång av dokument samt egen erfarenhet av organisationen prövas om oligarkins järnlag fortfarande kan sägas råda också i en frivilligorganisation som Förbundet djurens rätt i dag.

    Troll i diskussionsforum: en etnologisk analys av attityder kring olika bruk av virtuell identitet2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the emic use of ”Internet trolls" and trolling behaviour in one specific Internet community. The findings are compared with, and put in relations to the conventional definition of Internet-trolls as individuals who deliberately, typically anonymously, antagonize other users of online common spaces.

    A forum dealing with matters of relationship issues in the Swedish online community Message Board of Familjeliv.se, was the subject of field-work that provided the basic empirical material for the research; three comparable threads on the subject of infidelity. These could all be said to contain suspected trolling, and such suspicions were also ascribed participants throughout the discussions. The analysis was undertaken mainly in terms of quality of narrative, performance and interaction.

    A comparative method and a genre analysis out of a holistic and functionalistic perspective is used to shed some light on how forum participants organize themselves and steer narratives towards desired outcomes. Author performances, both initially and throughout conversational threads, are explored through holistic analysis.

    It is concluded that a broad emic view on trolls and trolling behaviour exists within the Internet community, and that the understanding of trolls can differ between users, forums and within conversational threads. The results are put in relations to and are compared to how trolls are described in Swedish folklore tradition. Parallels are also drawn to fear of and belief in evil.

    The analytical concepts ”actual” and ”virtual” worlds, as defined by the anthropologist Tom Boellstorff (2008:18f), are used in this analysis to illustrate how trolling behaviour can be perceived when borders between differing worldviews are crossed and/or when the majority of the active participants of a thread consider a statement incompatible with the dominating interpretation of a given narrative.

The theoretical framework consists of Arnold Van Gennep’s ideas about Rites ofPassage and Gilles Deleuze’s theories of Becoming as a way to understand transitions in life.The results indicate that most of the interviewed persons seem to make a rather seamlesstransition from working life into retirement. The ones bringing their photo-hobby with themfrom earlier in life seem to make the smoothest transition of all.

    This memo discusses and problematizes the work of organizing and cataloging the archive of the Environmental Advisory Council.The archive mainly consists of records concerning meetings which the Environmental Advisory Council has participated in, but also records concerning different tasks of the council and a few records concerning the coun-cil itself.The overriding problem, which is discussed in the final part of this memo, is the lacking knowledge about the creator of the archive and the creation of the archive itself and how this effects the work of ordering and catalog-ing. An attempt is made to evaluate the archive as a source of information to the Environmental Advisory Coun-cil and its work.This is a one year master’s thesis in Archival Science

    Dissensus i sensus communis: Kants estetiska omdöme och Jacques Rancière2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen undersöker förhållandet mellan Kants estetiska omdöme, såsom det formuleras i Kritik av omdömeskraften, och Jacques Rancières estetiska projekt, framförallt i förhållande till begreppet dissensus. Dels försöker uppsatsen spåra arvet från Kant hos Rancière och visa hur detta tar sig uttryck, dels ställer den frågan om hur Kants omdöme politiseras med Rancières dissensus. Detta sker i två kapitel, varav det första är en läsning av Kants kritik av den estetiska omdömeskraften, mot bakgrund av idén om dissensus, och det andra en genomgång av Rancières formulering av dissensus, samt relaterade begrepp såsom konstens identifikationsregimer och ”fras-bilden”. Vidare jämför det andra kapitlet Rancières dissensus med Kants idé om det ”intresselösa” i det estetiska omdömet, samt visar vilka politiska eller metapolitiska implikationer Rancière tillskriver det senare. Uppsatsen visar hur Kants estetiska omdöme är oumbärligt för Rancières estetisk-politiska filosofiska projekt och att flera av hans viktigaste begrepp vilar tungt mot Kant. Den visar också, med hjälp av Rancière, på ett möjligt sätt att ge Kants estetiska omdöme politisk betydelse, delvis i motsättning till de politiska läsningar av den tredje Kritiken som främst tar fasta på sensus communis som ett vittne om en konsensuell gemenskap. Rancière visar med sina omformuleringar av Kants intresselösa omdöme att en sådan gemenskap alltid föregås av ett visst dissensus – ett brott med de dominerande formerna för den gemensamma sinnligheten.

    Waves of Disaster – Waves of Relief: An Ethnography of Humanitarian Assistance to Post-Tsunami Sri Lanka2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper applies an impressionistic and reflexive genre of ethnography to understand the ethnographer’s meeting with the humanitarian aid workers in post-tsunami Sri Lanka. It offers an analysis of the political atmosphere in the country prior to the tsunami as a central framework for understanding current tensions and debates over the distribution of tsunami aid resources, and traces the emergence of what has been termed Sinhala-Buddhist nationalism. Based on three months of ethnographic fieldwork from April to July 2005 among aid workers at the central level in Colombo and a careful attention to the rhetorics and arguments that characterized the writings in the Sri Lankan press during this period, the paper argues that while public debates over tsunami aid distribution has been entwined with political rivalries between the Sri Lankan government, and Sinhala and Tamil nationalist groups, the everyday reality of international humanitarians evolved around the forming of a common development language to categorise the demands of the aid intervention and on the performances of individual organisations, personified by a limited number of individuals in the professional fora of the humanitarians in Colombo.

    Vårdande vård utifrån patientens perspektiv.: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med patienter inom psykosvården.2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att beskriva och öka förståelsen för vad patienter med

    psykosproblematik upplevde vad i vården som var befrämjande eller hindrande i

    deras återhämtningsprocess och för deras hälsa, hur det tog sig i uttryck och

    varför.

    Patienterna vårdades på ett för målgruppen specialiserat internatboende.

    Metod, studien hade en beskrivande och tolkande design med hermeneutisk

    fenomenologisk metod inspirerad av Van Manen. Datainsamlingen genomfördes

    med hjälp av semistrukturerade intervjuer, sju deltagare medverkade i studien.

    Analysen utfördes i flera steg, holistisk strategi, detaljerad strategi och selektiv

    strategi. Resultatet av analysen utmynnade i fem huvudteman med fjorton

    tillhörande subteman: Mellanmänsklig relation, Demokratisk atmosfär,

    Kommunikation, Att vara aktiv och

    Hopp. Hoppet framkom som en naturlig och underliggande aspekt som

    genomsyrade alla andra teman. Den övergripande tolkningen utmynnade i

    begreppet Medvaro, som var det gemensamma för alla teman. Medvaro beskrev

    också temanas beroende förhållande till varandra.Slutsatsen av den här studien var

    att patienternas upplevelse var att vården på internatboendet där de vistas var

    vårdande, vad som gjorde att den var vårdande framgick av de fem huvudtemana,

    hur det tog sig i uttryck beskrevs genom patienternas egna berättelser och varför

    fenomenet framträdde så som det gjorde tolkades utifrån begreppet Medvaro.

    Fotografen och bröllopsbilden: hur teknikskiftet från analog till digital teknik påverkat bröllopsfotografernas villkor och vanor2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how and if the understanding of wedding photography has changed during the shift of technology - from analog to digital photography. It examines if the changed conditions due to the shift of technology have changed the habits and conditions for the photographers working with wedding photography. It furthermore examines what impact these habits and conditions have had on the pictures of weddings. The investigation is based on interviews of six photographers that have worked professionally before and after the shift of technology, as well as of pictures by the photographers taken before and after the shift of technology.

    Use of time and space has changed due to the shift of technology. The change has also had an influence on hierarchy among the photographers. Depending on not only the camera technology but also at the digital revolution of our society. The pictures have changed due to the change of technology, but at the same time pictures of wedded couples follow rigid norms. The shift of technology is to be understood as a shift of paradigm according to the habits and conditions of the photographers.

    THE BYZANTINE CHURCH AT LABRAUNDA2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the Christian context of the former pagan sanctuary of Zeus Labrandeusin Caria during the Early Byzantine period, ca. 325-730 A.D. The focus is on the church, positioned outside the pagan sanctuary’s temenos area. The architecture of the church has been empirically analysed. It is argued that the church shows strong Syrian influences. The Syrian features are a tripartite sanctuary enclosed by a straight back wall, an interior supported by pilasters and a west part with two towers. The study of the architecture has also been used in an attempt to discuss the liturgy at Labraunda.The finds from the excavations of 1951-2005 have been categorized and examined in order to establish a terminus post quem for the Christian presence at the site of the church. This has been crucial for the dating of the church. Furthermore, the finds illustrate the social and economic conditions that prevailed at Labraunda during the Early Byzantine period. Finally, this study tries to enlighten the process of transition from a pagan sanctuary into a Christian place of worship.

    Representation av statslöshet: Framställningen av Rohingyafolket i burmesisk media2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to analyse how the stateless Muslim minority Rohingya from Myanmar are represented in Burmese media. Progress towards democracy has been made in Myanmar since the end of the dictatorship, making it possible for private newspapers to publish in Myanmar and increased the access to rights. However, this positive development has not affected all habitants in Myanmar. The UN still considers Rohingya to be one of the most persecuted people in the world.

    In this study, the material consists of articles from The Myanmar Times, Mizzima Business Weekly and The New Light of Myanmar. After assessing Hannah Arendt’s theory about the dependency on citizenship for human rights, and Steve Luke’s theory of power, this study uses the method systematic qualitative text analysis to sort the material. In addition, a critical text analysis inspired by critical discourse analysis is carried out. As a complement, photos are studied using visual text analysis. The main focus is on how Rohingya are represented in the material, and what can be said about Rohingya’s exclusion based on the findings in the material. The study shows that the name Rohingya is avoided in The Global New Light of Myanmar, who uses “Muslim Minority” as well as in The Myanmar Times, where group is often called “Bengali”. However, in Mizzima Business Weekly “Rohingya” is the most common name when describing the group. A key finding is that suppression, i.e. to silence issues concerning Rohingya, to deny their identity and ties to Myanmar, and to not acknowledge that Rohingya are affected by an event in the news, appears to various extents in all three newspapers, which shows how Rohingya are excluded and are often portrayed as “the others”. The study shows that the media is affected by “the power of the thought” and that the inherent paradox of the human rights can be applied in this case, and that in a society a stateless person is rightless and becomes completely excluded from the society. This is manifested to some extent in Mizzima Business Weekly and consistently in The Myanmar Times and The Global New Light of Myanmar.

    This paper concerns the changes in attitudes towards the use of force within the South African police force after democratisation. The paper debates the current approaches towards the analysis of violence and a new theory on community and conflict management is developed. This new theory aims to provide a new framework for analysing the use of violence. The theory is then applied on a fieldwork conducted at a local police station in Cape Town, South Africa.

    Under ytan: en etnologisk studie av nio transpersoners berättelser om vardagsverklighet i ett könsdikotomt samhälle2005Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie har varit att belysa situationen för transpersoner i det svenska samhället, med fokus på hur normer om manligt och kvinnligt framstår i mina informanters berättelser om deras vardagsverklighet. Materialet består av nio djupintervjuer med transpersoner inom grupperna transvestism, transgenderism, transexualism och intergenderism.

    Utgången har visat på att en avgörande faktor i informanternas liv är huruvida de bedöms utifrån kulturella föreställningar om autencitet kopplat till kategorierna man/manligt och kvinna/kvinnligt. Flertalet informanter vittnar om osynlighet som en påtaglig problematik i vardagsverkligheten. Vilket är följden av omgivningens ständiga betraktande av ytan som den enda sanningen. Materialet har utöver detta visat på HBT- och RFSL-”världen” dels som ett alternativt rum för ickenormativa identiteter, och dels som en del av en verklighet där dominerande förståelser av manligt och kvinnligt på olika vis konstituerar verkligheten.

    Om fototextpoesi: Läsningar av mötet mellan fotografisk bild och poetisk text2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    What is the relation of image and word, of sentences and pictures? What kind of message does this combination produce when juxtaposed on a single material plane? And how do we read its “infinite” relation? These are the questions at the center of this inquiry. My main interest concerns the exact nature of the relation between photographic images and textual elements of poetic language when these are juxtaposed in what I call Phototext poetry.

    The thesis calls into question the conventional reading habits of the conjunction of photographs and texts, and seeks to understand the more complex connections intrinsic to the relation image/word and its material and perceptual play in poetic works. Does a text always “anchor” the multiple meanings of an image, as Roland Barthes argues? What if the alterations of an image could “anchor” certain fractions of a poetic, polysemantic textual construct? Is a photograph indifferent to the visual, material permutations of texts that certain contemporary poetic practices produce?

    I discuss phototextual works and collaborations of various kinds, from Molin fontän [“Molin’s fountain”] (1866) over classic surrealist poetry to language-oriented writing. This last interest also shows (with ambiguity) in the thesis’ two close readings: 23:23 (2006) by Swedish poet Marie Silkeberg and The Tango (2001) by American poet Leslie Scalapino. Throughout the study, I also put these in relation to other works of various, and related, kinds, such as artists’ books, concrete poetry, and phototexts in 20th century art.

    My theoretization of phototext poetry focuses on questions of function. My perspective on the phototextual meeting in poetry is therefore concerned, not with taxonomy, but with local, contingent definitions. That is not to say, however, that certain things cannot be attributed to its particular, juxtaposed form. An “unthinkable space” (Michel Foucault), the relation between verbal and visual derives its dynamics from the different ways it actually makes itself “thinkable” and, furthermore, is materially represented. From Craig Dworkin’s conception of illegibility, Jacques Ranciere’s term phrase-image, and Roland Barthes’s obtuse meaning, I try to weave a network of connections concerning the reader’s relation to the photo/text conjunction. My argument that a certain phrase can cooperate with a certain part of an image, that a photo can “anchor” a specific meaning in a polysemantic text, and that the typographical appearance of a text may well have a plastic quality, also suggests a reading that focuses on systems of verbivisual parts and contingent intermedial meetings rather than the stable relation of a determining text and a determined image. In sum, I argue that the relation of photographs and texts must always be approached as a local problem.

    My second argument is that the phototext is a self-reflexive form – it investigates itself, as it were. When a photograph and a (poetic) text are juxtaposed, they try to define their own media characteristics. In short, they often investigate the premises for phototextual documentation, communication, and aesthetics. The phototextual form therefore shares a photographic trait, as a “process of rendering observation self-conscious” (John Berger).

    I also trace the supplementariness and discursiveness of the relation between image and word, and investigate how it affects our reading of this “disjunctive conjunction”. The text and the image run through each other, both inside and among us, as Rancière would have it. This, in turn, produces a contemporary approach to aesthetics (as a term and philosophical tradition) in this thesis, which involves the practice as much as the aesthetic perception of the phototextual combination. However, I also see as necessary to negotiate with the ways in which the image-word relation has been theorized since the early eighteenth century, as well as with earlier, even ancient, conceptions.

    In short, the aim of this thesis is to conceptualize the relation of photographs and texts in phototext poetry, not by destroying the dualistic positions of the visual and the verbal, but rather by re-negotiating them: by approaching them as located inside as well as between these two media, image and text. The relation of photographs and poetic text, I therefore suggest, performs its work “inside” language, at the same time opening up towards the “infinity of language” (Barthes).

    Attitydproblem: Om attityduttryck och deras retoriska funktioner2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores how verbal and nonverbal signs communicate attitudes and the rhetorical functions of such attitudinal signs. Attitudes are regarded as rationalized evaluations of attitudinal objects, and through their manifestation in signs an attitudinal gestalt is communicated. This gestalt is regarded as the audiences perception of the rhetors attitude. It is shown that the attitudinal signs function as ethical, logical and pathetic proofs and that they can create identification between the audience and the rhetor. The signs can have effects on the audiences perception of the attitudinal objects, their perception of the rhetor and influence the social dynamic of the discourse. A three-step method of rhetorical criticism is proposed, where the rhetors display of attitudinal signs is analyzed according to form & meaning, the attitudinal gestalts they convey, and the rhetorical effects they have.

    Understanding ‘Illness’2004Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Oppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes and analyses understanding ‘illness’ among clients and

    leaders of the spiritual tradition Candomblé in Rio de Janeiro. The study

    focuses on the individuals’ narratives of illness and of healing rituals within

    the cult. Particular attention is given to the consultation ritual called jogo de

    búzios, which is one of the main practices of finding the reason for the illness

    as well as its cure. The emphasis in this study is on the necessity to look at

    medical pluralism, the socio-individual context of illness and narrativity as an

    intersubjective practice. The conclusion is reached that illness within

    Candomblé ideology can be understood as disequilibrium in a person’s

    lifeworld.

    The individual is approached from within the plurimedical context of

    both biomedical and Candomblé healing tradition in Rio. Here it is argued that

    the person creates meaning of the illness in relation to different aspects of his

    lifeworld. The individual’s lifeworld includes the urban context of Rio de

    Janeiro; therefore a brief discussion is developed about how this context

    influences the individual meaning production of the illness. The Candomblé

    house is described with its social structure and other elements that are

    important for understanding how the cult might work for the clients as an

    alternative and/or complementary medical treatment.

    The study progressively introduces and analyses the lifestories of the

    individuals that approach the Candomblé cult in order to seek treatment. It

    also is concerned with stories of the Candomblé leaders and their view on the

    phenomenology of the Body, the Self and the social milieu of the person.

    Finally, the study emphasises the importance of studies that focus on the

    individual’s interpretation of the relations between the Self and the Body, and

    the individual’s understanding of medical knowledge and practice.

    Schwarz Rot Gold is the New Black: The production of patriotism in German fashion  - The case of Eva Gronbach2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a theoretically guided empirical discussion of fashion and its role within the production of national identity in Germany. In recent years, a new patriotism in contemporary German fashion could be observed, starting with the fashion designer Eva Gronbach in 2001. I will approach the term patriotism with the aid of one of Michel Foucault's key terms, the notion of the episteme. In my case study, singular fashion images from three consecutive collections by Gronbach are examined with regard to their role in the discourse of German patriotism. But I am not only interested in the "how" of this discourse. Building up upon Antonio Gramsci's notion of "cultural hegemony", I also explain the recent rise of this fashion patriotism. Thus, my discourse analysis of Gronbach's fashion becomes embedded in social struggles and transformations in Germany. Argueing that fashion is a discursive practice that can show up as well as promote changes in discursive formations, I assume a dialectical structure-agency conception: On the one hand the case of Gronbach hints at the deeper structural problematic of patriotism and social cohesion which allowed Gronbach to become popular. On the other hand, this structure is also produced via discursive practices such as Gronbach´s. The what I term "inclusionary patriotism" comprises cultural normalisation. Thus, the case of Gronbach demonstrates a "constrained heterogeneity" with regard to the discourse of patriotism in Germany, in which diversity is only acceptable within certain discursively constructed limits.

    The proof is in the pudding/steak: Halal food consumption, moral overtones and re-negotiation of categories among Muslim believers in Stockholm County2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of my thesis is showing how consumers who live in Stockholm County deal with the daily practice of halal food providing. I then analyse the main contradiction that emerges from my research, meaning the opposition between those who by ‘halal’ and those who do not. I propose an investigation of halal consumption or ‘non-consumption’ through the lens of economic processes, responsibility, (re)negotiation of food categories, gender roles, food morality, urban space and feedback systems.

    My aim is to demonstrate how ‘halal’ does not configure as a single category, but a group of categories which is intimately connected to the idea of the consumer to do ‘the right thing’. This ‘right thing’ is not necessarily following all the rules ‘according to the cook book’, but rather interpret the rules in order to ensure the welfare of the loved ones, economically, spiritually and physically. Besides, I will observe the other side of the coin, analysing the role of the food seller, who is included in the moral system which requires him to do the right thing too (not deceive the customer, be a good Muslim, ensure a good quality of the food, keep the prices low).

    Helgonlika politiker och maktlösa arbetslösa: En undersökning av attityder och värderingar i politikers metaforer2005Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att försöka besvara frågan: Vilka attityder och värderingar kommer till uttryck i Lars Ohlys respektive Göran Hägglunds användning av metaforer i debatten om arbetslöshetspolitiken? Jag har valt att studera de metaforer som förekommer när det gäller arbetslösa, arbetslöshet och den egna politiken i frågan. Jag har också analyserat de metaforer som används när de talar om/bemöter sina motståndare och deras politik. De artefakter jag har använt i min undersökning är två tal samt en TV-sänd partiledardebatt.

    Min ena hypotes var att det i talarens val av metaforer döljer sig attityder och värderingar som kanske inte syns vid ett oreflekterat mottagande av talarens budskap. Efter att ha studerat de båda partiledarnas val och användning av metaforer vill jag, till viss del,  påstå att en stor del av metaforerna öppet signalerar attityder och värderingar, inte minst när de tillskriver varandra negativa sådana. Men vissa värderingar syns först efter lite hårdare skrapande på ytan. Det intressanta är dock att båda partierna tycks vilja tillskriva sig själva liknande attityder och värderingar som i bägge fallen bygger på solidaritet, empati och förståelse. Samtidigt, som de båda, vill tillskriva varandra rakt motsatta värderingar.

    Min andra hypotes var att jag skulle kunna se övergripande frames som visar på olika underliggande attityder och värderingar, och till viss del tycker jag mig ha fått min hypotes besannad. Ohly och Hägglund visar prov på övergripande frames och metaforsystem som kan påverka hur vi, och de,uppfattar vår omvärld och därmed också hur vi handlar. Ohly skapar en frame för de arbetslösa som oskyldiga offer som står maktlösa inför yttre krafter. Hägglund koncentrerar istället sin frame för arbetslöshetspolitiken kring behovet av goda förutsättningar för företagande. Dessa olika attityder till frågan om arbetslöshet lämnar olika handlingsutrymme.

    Sammanfattningsvis kan jag säga att det i en undersökning som denna är svårt att dra en kortfattad slutsats, då den rika flora av metaforer som används kan tolkas som olika attityder och värderingar, och därmed präglas attityder och värderingar av mångfald.
