    Kollektivtrafiken i ett bilberoende samhälle: En kvantitativ studie om individens åsikter och attityder2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie handlar om befolkningens attityd mot kollektivtrafik och bilism i Nacka. Ämnet är framför allt intressant då det sker stora satsningar i området som kommer att leda till en omfattande utveckling av kollektivtrafiken. Studiens syfte är att undersöka attityder och beteende (även förväntat beteende) mot bilism och kollektivtrafik i Nacka. Med hjälp av kvantitativa metoder ska dessa besvaras, mer detaljerat har en enkät formats som delades ut till hushåll i Nacka. Vidare undersöks också om det finns någon skillnad i åsiker mellan åldersgrupper. Resultatet visar att respondenterna har en positiv attityd mot kollektivtrafiken och dess framtida utveckling och förstår bilens olika negativa konsekvenser, dock känner sig de flesta väldigt beroende av bilen, framför allt pensionärer som inte ser sig själva byta transportmedel. Detta gäller även deras förväntningar efter kollektivtrafiken har utvecklats med nya tunnelbanan (och Tvärbanan). Den åldersgrupp som ansåg sig vara minst beroende av bilen låg i åldersgruppen 26-35 år.

    Lokala svar på globala utmaningar?: exploatering av svensk jordbruksmark inför en osäker framtid2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Två skilda omvärldsutvecklingar i form av ett förändrat säkerhetspolitiskt läge i Sveriges närområde samt global klimatförändring accentuerar betydelsen av svensk jordbruksmark. Den här uppsatsen problematiserar den pågående irreversibla exploateringen av resursen och undersöker hur rapporter från Försvarsberedningen och IPCC speglas i regeringens nationella livsmedelsstrategi från år 2017. Särskilt exemplifieras utmaningen i att kombinera extensiv stadsutveckling med en strävan efter ett resilient samhälle genom uppsatsens fallstudie som undersöker på vilket sätt nationella strategier angående jordbruksproduktion påverkar den kommunala fysiska planeringen. Fallstudien genomför en dokumentanalys av Uppsala kommuns översiktsplan samt intervjuer med för studien centrala yrkespersoner. Uppsatsarbetet relateras till Köpenhamnskolans säkerhetiseringsteori för att undersöka om någon av de aktörer som förekommer i studien argumenterar för att utöka skyddet av den svenska jordbruksmarken genom att påtala dess vikt utifrån ett säkerhetsperspektiv. Uppsatsen belyser två huvudargument för att bevara svensk jordbruksmark. Dels har Sverige ett solidariskt ansvar att bibehålla jordbruksproduktionen på grund av framtida problem för den globala livsmedelstryggheten, dels utgör värnandet av resursen en nationell beredskapsaspekt. Slutligen jämförs de åtgärder som regeringen föreslår i den nationella livsmedelsstrategin med observationerna från fallstudien.

    Who Moves to Whom?: Gender Differences in the Distance Moved to a Shared Residence2019In: European Journal of Population, ISSN 0168-6577, E-ISSN 1572-9885, Vol. 35, no 3, p. 435-458Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the migration of couples and families is well examined, the migration that occurs at the start of co-residence has only been minimally studied. This study examines (1) whether women move more often and move over longer distances at the start of co-residence and (2) whether gender differences (if any) stem from compositional differences between women and men, such as gender differences in ties, or if they are the consequence of the within-couple distribution of bargaining power. The analyses are performed on Swedish population register data from 1991 to 2008, including longitudinal information on the residence of all couples who either married or had a child as cohabitants in 2008, backtracking them to the year of union formation. The results indicate that women are more prone to move for the sake of their male partner in the process of union formation than vice versa. If partners lived in close proximity prior to co-residence, the woman's increased likelihood of moving and longer distance moved is nearly completely explained by power imbalances in the couple. Gender differences in ties only have minor importance in explaining gender differences in these types of migration patterns. If partners lived far apart prior to co-residence, gender differences are particularly pronounced. These differences remain after adjusting for the two partners' relative resources. We contribute to the family migration literature by suggesting that women's higher propensity to move and their longer distance moved are indications that even couples' decisions at the start of co-residence are made in favour of the man's career.

    Bomullstextiliers komplexa produktion och geografi: Svenska företags arbete för att motverka miljöpåverkan till följd av en global textilindustri.2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bomullstextilier är en av de mest återkommande råvarorna i textilierproduktion, trots att medvetenheten om dess miljöpåfrestande framställning ökat är den fortfarande en av de viktigaste globala handelsvarorna. I och med den globala handeln har företagens agerande utvecklats från att ha en lokal produktion och försäljning till att handla med olika leverantörer och underleverantörer över hela världen. Det långa ledet leverantörer som krävs för att framställa bomullstextilier kan tillsammans med andra faktorer, som kulturella och etiska skillnader, leda till komplikationer när det kommer till uppföljningen av företagens krav på leverantörerna. Studien har en kvalitativ utgångspunkt där huvudfokus är att undersöka svenska företags möjligheter att påverka och förhindra dessa komplikationer för att uppnå en miljömässigt hållbar produktion. Insamlingen av primärdata har till stor del bestått av 5 genomförda intervjuer med nyckelpersoner inom området. Det teoretiska ramverket utgår från företagens Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) vilket behandlar både dess ansvar samt dess skyldigheter. Studien har identifierat olika verktyg och implementeringsproblem som företagen möter men visar samtidigt företagens möjligheter att på egen hand påverka produktionens utkomst.

    Att skapa kvalitet: En studie av den svenska TV-produktionens definition av kvalitet och kvalitetens betydelse för branschen2014Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In light of the growing TV industry in Sweden competition is intensified. Production companies have increased in number and public service has gone through major organizational changes in order to adapt to the new market conditions. Stockholm is the major cluster for TV production. As a consequence production firms are located there. The thesis reveals that competition has risen and a certain trend of specialization has taken place. The Swedish public television provider has increased its collaboration with other production companies and also exports its own formats. As quality plays a crucial part in TV production it is relevant to understand the stakeholders and their definition of the concept of quality in relation to production and what role it plays in the interconnection between the decision makers and the creators. This thesis addresses two subjects. First the geographic nature of the Swedish TV industry: Its location, district and the network within the Stockholm region. Second the concept of quality and how the different stakeholders’ within the Stockholm region define quality in TV production. Using qualitative interviews similarities and differences in the concept of quality were discovered. The major differences are related to stakeholders’ relation to the cultural and economic spheres. Two formats were singled out for comparison: Reality shows and TV-series (all genres).  Firstly gate-keepers definitions in relation to formats and genres are analyzed through interviews. Secondly a participatory observation of the Swedish drama series Real Humans was conducted. By observing and interacting with the production and those involved the concept of quality is addressed in the creative context. I argue that there are similarities in the conceptualization of quality between different stakeholders but differences when prioritizing and crafting quality. Hence there is a complexity in the definition within TV-production which is identified and discussed in this thesis.

    "Made in Canada": Local production networks in the Canadian fashion industry2018In: The Canadian Geographer / Le Géographe canadien, ISSN 0008-3658, E-ISSN 1541-0064, Vol. 62, no 2, p. 238-249Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The fashion industry is a highly globalized industry increasingly dominated by international firms that favour flexible, efficient supply chains in order to produce trendy clothing at the lowest price. While much of the fashion industry follows the logics of global production networks, this paper presents a case where small, independent firms have chosen instead to engage with local production networks. Drawing on interviews with 87 independent fashion designers and key informants, this paper examines the following question: In the context of global production, why do independent fashion designers choose to work locally? In answering this question, three key findings are presented: the motivations of designers who emphasize timeless design and high-quality local manufacturing; the strategies employed by designers to cultivate exclusivity and loyalty through the distribution of their collections; and the ways in which unique consumption experiences are utilized to articulate the values of their brand to consumers. While operating outside of the traditional fashion system provides independent fashion designers with the space for creativity, innovation, and control over their brand, it will be argued it also creates challenges with respect to growth beyond their niche market.

    Made in Canada: The strategies, spaces and working lives of independent designers in the Canadian fashion system2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on 87 interviews with independent fashion designers and key informants, this thesis is a collection of papers which aim to explore the strategies, spatial dynamics and working lives of independent fashion designers in the Canadian fashion industry. The majority of fashion design firms in Canada are small independent businesses, typically run by an individual or pair of designers, with few employees. Independent fashion designers create unique small businesses, produce high quality garments defined by the label ‘made in Canada,’ strategically mobilize physical and virtual spaces within the national system, and yet, the long-term viability of these businesses is far from certain. The Canadian fashion industry is facing a number of systemic challenges relating to wider institutional and policy weaknesses that make it difficult to grow a long-term domestic or international fashion business. However, the findings also suggest that a key strength of the Canadian fashion system is that it offers a variety of spaces for designers of different sizes, scales, and motivations. Throughout this thesis lies the tension between the quest for independence and creative freedom, which often comes at the cost of highly precarious entrepreneurial and labouring conditions. This thesis contributes to our understanding of the dynamics of ‘second tier’ fashion cities and regional systems, the entrepreneurial motivations and working lives of independent fashion designers, the locational choice decisions and the mobility of patterns of creative workers in the digital age, and the evolving nature of intermediation and value creation within the fashion industry.

    Entrepreneurship in the Fashion Industry: A Case Study of Slow Fashion Businesses2014In: Beyond Frames. Dynamics between the creative industries, knowledge institutions and the urban context / [ed] A. Schramme, G. Hagoort and R. Kooyman (eds.), Delft: Eburon Academic Publishers. , 2014, p. 73-79Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, we explore entrepreneurship in the slow fashion industry at a time of significant restructuring in the global fashion industry. Drawing on a case study of self-­‐employed designers in the slow fashion industry in Geneva (Switzerland), Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and Toronto (Canada), we argue that small, slow fashion businesses, through their innovative design, branding and retail practices, have carved out a unique niche in the hyper competitive fashion marketplace. In particular, we demonstrate that they have a very innovative approach to sustainability, characterized by an interest toward the use of salvage materials, the revalorization of craftsmanship, as well as a tendency for handmade productions. Driven by personal beliefs and values, these designers seem to wish to reconcile personal fulfillment with professional achievement as they seek to compete with the paradigm of fast fashion that continues to dominate the fashion industry. This paper contributes to our understanding of the entrepreneurial practices of emerging designers, in particular in the slow fashion industry. It also contributes to the emerging studies in fashion and design-­‐oriented industries that consider the value craftsmanship and the wish to “stay local”, predicting a rise or return of the makers and small-­‐scale manufacturing in contemporary cities.

    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, tier-two fashion countries have been making gains in the global fashion industry, with hip young brands, buzz-worthy fashion weeks and export-oriented designers. The Canadian fashion industry, on the other hand, continues to fall behind and instead has experienced recent high-profile closures of leading domestic fashion names. This paper explores why this is the case by considering a wide range of factors from a historical and institutional perspective. We argue that Canadian fashion is facing a number of systemic problems relating to wider institutional and policy weaknesses, rather than a lack of talent and know-how within the entrepreneurs and businesses in the sector. While the fashion industry is indeed global, we argue that it is in fact national and local level factors—political, economic, and cultural—that structure and constrain the Canadian fashion industry for independent designers. Through exploring the experiences of this group of actors—entrepreneurial fashion designers—in this particular context, we not only learn about Canada as an economy but also what is needed in order to develop the fashion industry more broadly. We provide a framework for analysing the range of socio-economic, historical, and political factors at the national level which affect the performance of the fashion sector and the operation of fashion designers as the entrepreneurial actors at the heart of the industry.

    Users’ role in innovation processes in the sports equipment industry: experiences and lessons2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this project is to contribute to our knowledge about user-driven innovation and to suggest how knowledge on user-driven innovation may be included in innovation efforts and systems both for the sports equipment industry and for other industries.

    The study is primarily based on case studies of how firms within the Nordic sports equipment and outdoor industry involve users in their innovation efforts. Our studies concentrate on firms producing equipment for winter sport and outdoor recreation. The study builds upon a large number of interviews with firms and key persons as well as extensive analysis of available written material and research literature.

    The results focus on the identification of certain key user groups in the sports equipment innovation cycle: user innovators, professional and sponsored users, enthusiastic amateurs, passionate insiders and chains and retailers. We consider the extent to which these users influence or take part in innovation processes within technical design, visual design, branding and the development of product systems.

    The report concludes with policy recommendations for how firms may take advantage of each user group. In this respect we present some key points and examples on firms’ interaction with users in innovation processes. Other recommendations consider public policy and suggest that public policy ought to encourage firms to take advantage of knowledge held by those groups. In society a large number of user groups exist and public policy ought to stimulate use of their knowledge for a broader purpose, including societal development. Merging user groups in order to stimulate cross sector development, in addition to organising meeting places may be a theme for public policy at the regional level.

    Creative Distraction: Lack of Collective Learning in Adapting to Online Advertising in Oslo, Norway2011In: Industry and Innovation, ISSN 1366-2716, E-ISSN 1469-8390, Vol. 18, no 2, p. 227-248Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The advertising industry is often seen as adaptable and flexible, and its work organization and diverse project ecologies are assumed to nurture creativity, learning and innovation. The advertising industry in Oslo is currently going through a restructuring process of adapting to the Internet as an emerging media channel for marketing, but struggles to benefit from collective learning. The established advertising agencies have been reluctant regarding the new opportunities in Internet-based advertising, which has allowed for a set of smaller and specialized web agencies to emerge, and who now possess the best skills within interactive advertising. The paper argues that there are two parallel epistemic communities in the localized advertising industry. It is shown that the advertising industry seems to have been caught in a path-dependent technological trajectory, and that in order for collective learning to unfold geographical proximity needs to be supplemented by cultural and epistemic proximity and compatibility.

    Creative Distraction: The Digital Transformation of the Advertising Industry2009Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is primarily based on a case study on how the Internet affects the advertising industry in Oslo, Norway, and on how the digitization of advertising adds to our understanding of the geography of innovation and urban and regional development. The study argues that the Internet fundamentally changes and challenges the advertising industry, and that advertising merges into market communication and even user experience and product development. The interactive nature of the Internet and its parallel social and commercial worlds contribute to transcend the role of a traditional medium and to coalescence between production and consumption. Despite the fact that those involved in online and traditional advertising are located close to each other in Oslo, the extent of collective learning, knowledge externalities and innovation has been scarce. The study shows that the creative destruction of this industrial sector is ignited by actors outside the traditional advertising industry. Due to path dependency along one-way mass communication media incumbents within the advertising industry have left room for new actors, such as web agencies and technology consultants, to explore and take market share in online market communication services. The reconfiguration of market communication is regarded as the result of an industry mutation across advertising and ICT, and creates a need for bridging skills and competencies across creative, strategic and interactive domains. The implications of such an industry mutation across diverse sectors are used to discuss the evolutionary potential of the related variety perspective. The study argues that localized industrial change may be conceptualised in terms of a cyclical relationship between externalities from localisation economies and urbanisation economies respectively. The implications of the findings from the case study are in this way used to discuss more general drivers of urban and regional development.

    How industry mutations redefine related variety:  The case of Internet-based advertisingManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the distinction of the notion of diversity into related and unrelated, the related variety approach represents an interesting attempt to improve our understanding of industrial dynamics and economic growth. However, using the insights from a case study on Internet based market communication this study seeks to problematize how the related variety approach so far may be read as a somewhat static approach. Through a sample of businesses that offer services within Internet-based market communication, the study uncovers the range of actors who are de facto related to each other within these economic activities. This simple exercise reveals that actors who are de facto related would have been categorised as unrelated in the related variety approach. These actors used to be unrelated, but due to convergence of existing and new technologies they have become related. In this way the paper not only aims to document how this particular industrial field is developing, it also suggests that the related variety approach does not take into account how changing technological conditions continuously alter the composition of related and unrelated actors in the economy. The related variety approach may thus still have a potential to improve its ability to reflect actual relations among industrial actors in its analytical apparatus. The paper suggests alternative indicators that to a larger extent may be tackling how technological change constantly alters the degree of relatedness between various actors.

    Jacobian Cluster Mutation: From Advertising to Internet-based market communicationManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The advertising industry is currently undergoing a restructuring process, where traditional media like TV and print are being complemented and replaced by interactive advertising and market communication on the Internet. The paper discusses how this transformation process affects the structure and organisation of services within Internet-based market communication. Based on interviews with 50 respondents from advertising and beyond the paper argues that the multiple and interactive nature of the Internet medium represent opportunities and challenges for the advertising agencies that transcend their traditional role as developers of creative ideas and campaigns. It is argued that Internet-based market communication demands a convergence of creative, strategic and technical services which represents a new production and market communication space in which the end consumer plays a lead role. The paper suggests that technology driven transformation processes in the industrial agglomerations of advertising and ICT in Oslo can be viewed as an industrial mutation.

    Lack of collective learning in online advertising in Oslo, NorwayManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The advertising industry is often seen as adaptable and flexible, and its work organisation and diverse project ecologies are assumed to nurture creativity, learning and innovation. The advertising industry in Oslo is currently going through a restructuring process of adapting to the Internet as an emerging media channel for marketing, but struggles to benefit from collective learning. The established advertising agencies have been reluctant regarding the new opportunities in Internet-based advertising, which has allowed for a set of smaller and specialized web agencies to emerge, and who now possess the best skills within interactive advertising. The paper argues that there are two parallel epistemic communities in the localized advertising industry. It is shown that the advertising industry seems to have been caught in a path dependent technological trajectory, and that in order for collective learning to unfold geographical proximity needs to be supplemented by cultural and epistemic proximity and compatibility.

    Omsorgsfylld landsbygd: Rumsliga perspektiv på åldrande och omsorg på den svenska landsbygden2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to study the intersection of rural areas, ageing and care. It is  based on interviews with elderly and caregivers carried out in the municipality of Heby in the middle of Sweden. Care is given a broad definition and includes help with many daily activities given by family members, the public sector, the private sector, voluntary organisations and neighbours.

    The studied rural area is described as filled with care, as there exist people with care needs and caregivers from several sectors. Together the elderly and their caregivers create a landscape of care which they strive to describe as characterized by mutual dependency and carefulness, as well as created between formal and informal relationships. The different care givers are dependent on, complement and sometimes exclude each other.

    With an increasing trend with ageing in place, the own home is becoming more Important for the rural aged. This creates special careneeds, and reshapes the home physically and gives it and the local community a specific meaning. The own home and its surroundings are seen as consisting of physical features, social relationships and memories of the lived life. The own home is both seen as a place where the elderly can be independent and as a place where they are dependent, which defines the home as a contradictory place.

    The study wants to contribute to a more developed theoretical understanding of the rural with an age and care perspective. Above all it is stressed that the rural is filled with care relations. Also it is stated that the elderly live in a constantly changing rural society and that the rural is placed between a material and social understanding respectively between the concepts of periphery and center.

    Home is where the heart is: En studie i platsanknytning och dess påverkan på valet av framtida bostadsort2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen har som syfte att undersöka studenter vid Uppsala universitets syn på sin hembygd, deras nuvarande bostadsort och deras inställningar till att flytta tillbaka till hembygden. Detta görs med hjälp av kvalitativa respondentundersökningar i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer med studenter vid Uppsala universitet. Totalt har sex studenter deltagit i intervjustudien. Resultatet visar att studenterna har liknande uppfattningar av sin hembygd trots att de kommer från vitt skilda platser i Sverige. Hembygden ses som liten vilket har både positiva och negativa attribut. De har även en enhetlig uppfattning av den nuvarande bostadsorten Uppsala vilken ses som en plats som passar väl in i deras nuvarande livssituation. Respondenterna har skapat nya sociala nätverk i Uppsala och säger sig trivas bra i staden. Detta påverkar deras inställningar till att flytta tillbaka till hembygden då det i nuläget anses vara en större förlust att återvända eftersom det kan medföra att det nya sociala nätverket som skapats i Uppsala skulle försvinna. Deras livssituation i dagsläget anses inte heller vara kompatibelt med livet i hembygden. I samtliga intervjuer framgår det att respondenterna för närvarande inte har några planer på att återvända till hembygden.

    Klimatanpassning på lokal nivå: Exemplet Sundsvalls kommun2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett förändrat klimat kommer få konsekvenser för hur vi utvecklar och planerar våra samhällen. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur Sundsvalls kommun arbetar med hållbar utveckling och klimatanpassning samt hur de resonerar kring densamma. Undersökningen har i huvudsak använt sig av kvalitativa intervjuer för att söka en djupare förståelse kring problematiken med klimatanpassning och hållbar utveckling på lokal nivå, representerat av tre politiker ur den styrande majoriteten och en tjänsteman i Sundsvalls kommun. Översiktsplanen och en hållbar tillväxtstrategi har granskats närmare med fokus på hållbar utveckling. Resultatet visade på en mångbottnad bild vad gäller klimatomställningsarbetet och synliggjorde både problem och möjligheter. Slutsatserna är att Sundsvalls kommun använder sig framförallt av långsiktighet i strategidokument och kompetens som verktyg och strategier. Kommunen anses vara en viktig aktör i sammanhanget men det finns utmaningar vad gäller den lokala nivåns ansvar för klimatanpassning och hållbar utveckling, mycket beroende på olika förutsättningar samt det svåra i att ställa kraftfulla miljökrav kontra locka investeringar till kommunen.

    Grundläggande mänskliga behov: Fyra samhällsinstitutioners roll i lokalsamhället2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte var att studera, utifrån utvalda samhällsinstitutioner och föreningars perspektiv, hur dessa ser på sin roll i lokalsamhället Liden och hur väl institutionerna själva anser att de svarar på de grundläggande mänskliga behov som existerar i bygden. För att besvara syftet utförde jag intervjuer med representanter för de olika institutionerna och föreningarna. Svaren som jag fick analyserades utifrån Manfred A Max-Neefs teori ”human scale development”. Varje informant fick svara på vilka grundläggande mänskliga behov de kunde tillfredsställa utifrån den matris som Neef introducerat.

    Resultatet visade att varje institution eller förening har sin roll och sin funktion i lokalsamhället. De behov som tillfredsställs har ställts i perspektiv till vilken funktion de har i lokalsamhället och resultatet har visat att då de tillfredsställer samma behov riktar sig föreningen eller institutionen ofta till olika målgrupper. Skolan tillfredsställer många behov och är den institution som har störst roll i lokalsamhället.

    Hållbart träbyggande i Sverige: Kan ett ökat träbyggande bidra till en mer hållbar byggbransch?2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen syftar till att, utifrån det svenska dagsläget (våren 2019), undersöka ett ökat

    träbyggande inom bostadssektorn som åtgärd för en mer hållbar byggsektor ur ett ekologiskt,

    socialt och ekonomiskt hållbarhetsperspektiv. Vidare ämnar uppsatsen undersöka incitament

    och hinder för träbyggandet idag, och slutligen vad som krävs för att träbyggandet i sig skall

    bli mer hållbart längs med hela produktionskedjan, ur ett cirkulärt perspektiv. De stora

    klimatförändringar planeten står inför gör ämnet i högsta grad aktuellt utifrån ett

    samhällsplaneringsperspektiv. Studien har utgått ifrån teorier om cirkulär ekonomi kopplat till

    hållbart bostadsbyggande. För att undersöka detta har 33 intervjuer med olika aktörer längs med

    produktionskedjan genomförts och kompletterats med en genomgång av forskningsfältet.

    Resultatet visar på tydliga argument varför trä kan vara en avgörande åtgärd. Samtidigt

    redovisas en rad med hinder som verkar ligga till grund för att trä som byggnadsmaterial inte

    tagit större marknadsandelar trots dessa argument. Studier visar också att ett ökat träbyggande

    i sig oavsett behöver bli mer hållbart, inte minst utifrån konsekvenserna av dagens storskaliga

    skogsbruk. Sammanfattningsvis framkommer ett behov av tydligare och mer krävande

    lagstiftning.

    Saving for Change: A field study of Saving Groups impact on women’s empowerment in Uganda2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the role self-help microfinance Saving Groups play in women’s empowerment in villages in Mbale district, Uganda. Central for the study is to identify the challenges and opportunities that participation in Saving Groups brings in women’s everyday life. The thesis is a result of a qualitative field study in Uganda, where eleven mothers attending Saving Groups in the villages Nashikhaso, Bubuyera and Mulyuli were interviewed. The findings show that loans from the groups have allowed the interviewees to improve their farming and thereby gain an annual income which has led to several life-changing opportunities. The ability to pay for children’s education is recognized as most valued for the women’s self-esteem, self-confidence and hope for a better future. Moreover, the findings show that even though the Saving Group’s function as a financial instrument is important, their function as a center where women can socialize and find support and knowledge may be even more vital for women’s empowerment. Patriarchal structures are affected since the Saving Groups have given women that want to make a change an arena in which to do so. Thus, through the group, women have entered a traditionally men-only zone where they redefine roles and norms.

    Ulleråker, en stadsdel för alla?: En kvalitativ undersökning av konflikten mellan social och ekonomisk hållbarhet i bostadsplaneringen2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I FN:s hållbarhetsmål läggs det ett stort ansvar på kommunerna att sträva efter hållbarhet ur ett ekonomiskt, socialt och ekologiskt perspektiv. I Ulleråker söder om Uppsalas stadskärna planeras det för 7000 nya bostäder med tillhörande handelsplats och service. Området ska vara hållbart ur alla tre perspektiv, men det har uppstått en konflikt mellan den ekonomiska och sociala hållbarheten i bostadsplaneringen. Syftet med den här uppsatsen är således att undersöka konflikten mellan ekonomisk och social hållbarhet i Ulleråker och vilken av dem som väger tyngst i bostadsplaneringen. Syftet besvaras genom att samla information från relevanta plandokument och kvalitativa intervjuer med tre tjänstemän på Uppsala kommun. För att få en djupare förståelse kring konflikten mellan ekonomisk och social hållbarhet, används Scott Campbells (1996) planerarens triangel och specifikt egendomskonflikten. Uppsatsen kommer fram till att relationen mellan ekonomisk och social hållbarhet prioriterar den ekonomiska hållbarheten i bostadsplaneringen, men att det kan bero på om den sociala hållbarheten ses ur ett individperspektiv eller samhällsperspektiv. Varför den ekonomiska hållbarheten väger tyngre kan bero på att nyliberal planering har förändrat kommunens roll i egendomskonflikten och möjliggjort för den privata marknaden att i större utsträckning styra bostadsbyggandet, vilken favoriserar ekonomiska utveckling före social jämlikhet.

    Who can play this game?”: The lived experiences of doctoral candidates and early career women in the neoliberal university2018In: Journal of geography in higher education (Print), ISSN 0309-8265, E-ISSN 1466-1845, Vol. 42, no 2, p. 261-275Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Work intensification is a characteristic of the current neoliberal trend in academia. Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers (PhD candidates and ECRs) in geography are no strangers to this development but are rarely the focus of publications or dialogue on the (gendered) outcomes of the academy’s neoliberal agenda. Encouraged by the recent emotional turn in the social sciences and humanities, this article seeks to unveil some of the everyday particulars of life in academia for PhD candidates and ECRs under the tide of financial cuts and increased competition for funding. We explore the question: “Who can – and indeed wants to – play this game?” As three early and one mid-career academic women in four different institutions in the Global North, we make use of reflexivity, autobiographical writing, and reflection, to analyze increasingly stressful and demanding working conditions. Through the depiction of our lived experiences, we contend that the push for ever increasing outputs attends most of our time and represents a distinctly different form of scholarship than has been traditionally considered as the pathway into academia, not seldom jeopardizing well-being of young academics, one that needs to be interrogated by geographers.

    A reflexive analysis on field knowledge production and academic labor during PhD studies2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The multitasking nature of academic labor has become an increasingly essential part of PhD studies. Teaching, competition for funding, international networking and publishing in high impact journals are expected and encouraged. This situation becomes even more complex when a doctoral candidate needs to perform fieldwork, as it is common in geography. In this paper, the gendered nature of fieldwork is analyzed through the autobiographical accounts of two young female doctoral students in human geography carrying out field research in the global south. As opposed to the positivistic ideal of scientific objectivity, the results show that embodiment and wellbeing play a pivotal role in influencing the course of fieldwork. Hence, we examine  the everyday dimensions of field research both during pre-fieldwork planning and post-fieldwork. Lastly, we discuss current neoliberal prerequisites to secure an academic career and what they imply for researchers' lives.

    Conflating Privilege and Vulnerability: A Reflexive Analysis of Emotions and Positionality in Postgraduate Fieldwork2017In: Professional Geographer, ISSN 0033-0124, E-ISSN 1467-9272, Vol. 69, no 2, p. 275-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Grounded in a self-reflexive, intersectional analysis of positionality, we examine emotions in fieldwork through theautobiographical accounts that we gathered during our postgraduate ethnographic research in the Global South. We showhow we, two female early-career geographers, emotionally coped with instances that put us in a vulnerable position due toloneliness, commitment to the field, insistent questioning, violence, and violent threats. We argue that a culture of silencesurrounding fieldwork difficulties and their emotional consequences tend to permeate our discipline. We contend thatgeography departments ought to provide mentorship that takes into account doctoral candidates’ different positionalities,conflated vulnerability and privilege, and embodied intersectional axes. This renewed awareness will help not only to revealpossible risks and challenges connected with fieldwork but also ultimately to enrich the overall academic discussions withinour discipline.

    Kossan i sociala medier: Personifiering av kon inom marknadsföring av mejeriprodukter2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka porträtterandet av kossan inom marknadsföring av mejeriprodukter i sociala medier. Undersökningens analys utfördes på mejeriföretaget Arlas Instagramkonto @arlasverige. Instagramkontots inlägg som publicerats mellan december månad 2015 till december månad 2016 innehållande en eller flera verkliga kossor analyserades. Metoderna som brukades var kvalitativ bild- och textanalys med kvantitativa inslag. Frågeställningarna undersökningen baserades på var: Hur porträtteras kossan på Instagramkontot @arlasverige i bild och text? och Hur personifieras kossan genom bild och text på Instagramkontot @arlasverige?. Resultaten visar att kossan porträtteras glad, nöjd, fri på sin gård, älskad och omhändertagen. Denna porträttering av kossan skapas med hjälp av miljön kossan befinner sig i på bilden eller i filmklippet, vilka innehållselement Arla applicerar i inlägget samt tillhörande text. Personifieringen sker genom att kossan tillskrivs egenskaper och beteenden som anses typiska för människan, även kallat antropomorfism. Antropomorfism sätter en humoristisk prägel på inlägget som minskar risken för att etiska aspekter ifrågasätts. Inslaget av antropomorfism gör även att människan lättare kan knyta an till kossan samtidigt som det inte blir för nära så hon fortfarande kan objektifieras.
