    "Yngre vrak": Samtidsarkeologiska perspektiv på ett nytt kulturarv2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I svenska vatten finns ett stort antal vrak från gångna tiders sjöfart. Många av dem har sjunkit för mindre än 100 år sedan, och räknas därmed inte, enligt nuvarande lagstiftning som fasta fornlämningar. Med utgångspunkt från pågående diskussioner om dessa vraks kulturvärden skriver Mirja Arnshav om sportdykares, antikvariers och andra intressegruppers förhållande till det moderna kulturarvet och deras agerande när det gäller de moderna vraken. I yngre ”Yngre vrak” – samtidarkeologiska perspektiv på ett nytt kulturarv diskuteras värdering och urval, arkeologiska processer samt etablerande av nytt kulturarv. I ljuset av detta belyses också relationen mellan kulturlämningars ålder och samtidens intresse.

    Översättbarhet = Translatability2011Collection (editor) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    In this age of globalization, the question of cultural translation is central. All cultures may seem connected with one another, what is to be considered "original" and what is to be regarded as a translation may no longer seem relevant. All cultures are continuosly being transformed through an ongoing process of translation.

    What is cultural translation? Are there limits to translatability? What kind of resistances to translatability way we encounter? The idea of cultural translation implies that different art forms communicate with one another. However, we must critically engage with remainders that remain resistant to translatability. How are we to understand the cultural context in which an author has developed his language and his art? To what extent can it be transposed into other contexts, and what kind of questions must we take into consideration when we attempt such a transposition?

    The research project Translatability; aesthetics and the transformation of the public sphere in an era of globalization aims to link theories of cultural translation to the practice of exhibition and publishing. Gathering curators, researchers, critics, artists and writers, the question of translatability is examined from a theoretical as well as a practical point of view. The impact of geography, history and politics are among factors that determine the possibilities of cultural translation.

    Translatability; aesthetics and the transformation of the public sphere in an era of globalization is a collaboration between Bonniers Konsthall, Albert Bonnier Publishers and the department of aesthetics at Södertörn University.

    Fetisch, mode, performativitet: en studie av relationen mellan kropp och estetik2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For centuries, the human body has been used as a mean to project the norms, moral values and aesthetic preferences that exist throughout society. It has been controlled through constrictive fashion, family and social virtues and through how we perceive gender and sexuality. This essay strives to show, not only how the body and the aesthetic values coexist, but also how they work together and influence each other, with the body as the aesthetic medium. To do this, Michel Foucault’s writings of sexuality and his theories on morality and discipline, as well as Judith Butler’s works on normativity and performativity are being used. Carolyn Korsmeyer’s work on aesthetic theory from a feminist point of view, specifically what she writes about beauty and the sublime, is also utilized, together with Sigmund Freud’s theories on variant sexuality.

    As human beings, we have a tendency to view each other as followers of a certain norm; more specifically a gender based one. We divide each other into either men or women, but always as heterosexuals with a desire to procreate. What happens then when we come across someone who either is gay, bi- or transsexual, a transvestite, or someone who’s primary sexual interest is focused on a body part, a piece of clothing, on giving or receiving pain, physical restraint, or to dominate or being dominated? There still exist a social tendency to view these as being outside the norm, but my point in this essay is that these are just as much a performative action as is the one being a heterosexual man or woman. This because we humans are performative at our core, we always stage our gender and sexuality, as well as philosophical and political attitudes, with everyone else being both the audience and fellow actors.

    Fetishistic practices and BDSM are part of the aesthetic world by their close relationship with aesthetic sublimity. By engaging in one or both of these, the fetishist or BDSM-enthusiast uses his or her body as a mean to experience the delight that is the core of sublimity, as well as beauty. Beauty and sublimity are also the keywords used to describe the pleasure derived from the visual appearance of the female body and the power eminated from the male. These have been highlighted through clothing such as corsets, high heels and uniforms, and all of these have also found their way into both the world of fashion and into the wardrobes of fetishists and those engaging in BDSM. These practises have had a high influence on the haute couture of fashion, mostly due to their provocative values.

    My point in this essay is then that the aesthetic world consists of something more than just art, for example a painting hung on a wall. It consists of bodily actions and responses, all of which can be seen as parts of a purely aesthetic experience.

    Behovet av tillhörighet har större betydelse än genus inom vänskapsrelationer2011Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vänskap är en viktig del för den psykiska hälsan och individens välbefinnande, det är även ett välbeforskat område inom psykologins värld. Tidigare forskning inom vänskapsrelationer har lagt den största tyngden på genus som den ensamma och bästa variabeln till denna typ av relationer och därmed inte tagit hänsyn till andra möjliga bakomliggande variabler. Denna studie ämnade undersöka om känslan av tillhörighet kan vara en bakomliggande variabler till skattning utav faktorer inom vänskapsrelationer, och möjligtvis kunna förklara skattningen bättre än genus. Undersökningen utfördes med en enkätundersökning. Urvalet bestod utav 60 deltagare, 30 män och 30 kvinnor i åldrarna 19 – 26. Resultatet visade att känslan av tillhörighet kunde förklara skattningen inom vänskapsrelationer bättre än genus. Detta resultat påvisar att skillnader inom vänskapsrelationer till stor del tycks bero på andra variabler än genus.

    Thomas Kuhn och paradigmteorin idag: Från normal till postnormal vetenskap2008Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay describes the philosophy of science that Thomas Kuhn puts forth in his work The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. The question is, does his description of the scientific paradigm work as well today as in the examples he gave in the book?

    The conclusion is that there are certain factors that make for a number of differences between science today and, for example in the seventeenth century. There is also a growing theory or vision of a post normal science laid developed by among others Jerome Ravetz. This theory or vision is an idea of a science close to peer-communities and fast as well as critical decisions involving opposite values.

    Graffiti: kontextualitet, platsbundenhet och innehåll2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this essay is to investigate if there lies a difference between graffiti art that is placed in the public spaces and graffiti art that is sited in an institutional art setting; in this essay exemplified in a gallery space. My thesis is that graffiti art derives a great deal of its meaning and substance from its situation consequently making a change of cultural context also a change of connotation and understanding of the graffiti art itself.  Meaning that graffiti art situated in a communal space is different from graffiti art situated in the gallery space. They share aesthetic expression but their connotations differ; i.e. one being illegal and the other permissible making their meanings dissimilar. I have used a comparison between site-specific art and graffiti art to further strengthen my thesis concerning the importance of understanding how a change of context critically changes the substance of graffiti art.

    Philosophy with children: moral argumentation and the role of pictures2011In: Educating for complex thinking through philosophical inquiry: Models, advances, and proposals for the new millennium : Proceedings of the 14th ICPIC Conference. / [ed] Marina Santi, Stefano Oliverio, Padova: Liguori , 2011, p. 12 s.-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to outline the disposition and results of a short-time pilot study (Backman, 2009) of pupils’ ability to express ethical arguments and of the role of pictures in ethical argumentation. There were 18 pupils, in the ages 7-8 years, that participated in the study, which was carried out in a school in the northern part of Sweden. In this paper, we begin by giving a short description of some relevant statements in the Swedish national curriculum and put this in relation to some previous research on philosophical inquiry with children. Then we continue by describing some of the project’s influences from philosophical practice and theoretical groundwork. After this, some methodological concerns and ethical considerations are referred. Finally, some results of the study are described and shortly discussed.

    Abstract [en]

    In July 2006 archaeologists from the University of Bristol and Atkins Heritage embarked oil a contemporary archaeology project with a difference. We 'excavated' ail old (1991) Ford Transit van, used by archaeologists and later by works and maintenance teams at the Ironbridge Museum The object: to see what can be learnt from a very particular, common and characteristic type of contemporary place; to establish what archaeologists and archaeology can contribute to understanding the way society, and specifically we as archaeologists, use and inhabit these places; and to challenge and critique archaeologies of the contemporary past. In this report we describe our excavation and situate it within a wider debate about research practice in contemporary archaeology.

    Philosophie im Konjunktiv: Nichtidentität als Ort der Möglichkeit des Utopischen in der negativen Dialektik Theodor W. Adornos2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study "Philosophie im Konjunktiv. Nichtidentität als Ort der Möglichkeit des Utopischen in der negativen Dialektik Theodor W. Adornos" (Subjunctive Philosophy. Nonidentity as the Place for the Possibility of the Utopian in the Negative Dialectics of Theodor W. Adorno) deals with Adorno’s utopian thinking and asks on what it depends and on what it is founded. Moreover, the study asks the question wherein the possibility of fundamental societal change can be found and on what it can be founded. This study develops an answer to these questions through the analysis of the concepts of the nonidentity and the nonidentical – central concepts in Negative Dialectics –, which in the theory of Adorno constitute a place at which thinking and human beings are not fully absorbed by and integrated in philosophical and scientific systems or in the structure of society. Within the nonidentical the subsuming identities of philosophy and society are broken up. Therefore, the possibility of the utopian appears in this break of the identical. Here, the emancipation of the nonidentical could be realized: an emancipation, however, which is made possible in the nonidentical. The utopian thinking and the possibility of the utopian on the one hand, and nonidentity and the nonidentical on the other hand, are – this is the main claim of the study – inseparable. In developing this answer the study also tries to solve a certain problem in the discussion of Adorno’s philosophy, namely the difficulty in connecting the critical dimensions of his thinking - which are dominating his work and directed against the tradition of philosophy (and science) and capitalist society - with its utopian motives, through which he is calling for change in different ways. Finally, it is argued that Adornos’s thinking, which attempts to realize the utopian and to transcend reality on the basis of nonidentity, must be understood as a subjunctive philosophy.

    Abstract [en]

    English Title:  "Geographical Uncertainties: Four Theses on Russia, Europe and Asia"

    Traditionally accepted explanations of the question of whether Russia belongs to Europe or Asia include: Russia is a European country; Russia is different from Asia; Russia is a Eurasian country. Each of these views contains some truth, but all of then need to be further refined. The following theses will contribute to further understanding of the Russia’s belonging to Europe or Asia: 1) Russia is not only a European country, but is also a European empire. 2) Radical advocates of Eurasian doctrine do not oppose European nature of Russia, but speak against the view that Russia is an empire. 3) The advocates of Eurasian doctrine claim thatRussia is a part of Eurasia and not Asia. Advocates of Eurasian doctrine see Eurasia as a civilization completely different from either Europe or Asia. 4) The advocates of Eurasian doctrine view Russia — Eurasia as a potential colony, and Russia's mission is to be an anti-colonial leader.

    Die Philosophie Martha Nussbaums hinsichtlich ihrer feministischen Ausrichtung2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis „Martha Nussbaum’s philosophy with regard to its feministic orientation” represents Martha Nussbaum’s theory of the good life, demonstrates it as a feminist philosophy and locates it in the context of feminist theory. It is shown that Martha Nussbaum’s capability approach in connection with her reflections about the political liberalism and communitarianism is an important contribution for a feministic ethic of equality. Martha Nussbaum combines questions of justice with a theory of the good life. In her demand for the ethicing of the political, lies the relevance of her philosophy for feminism.

    Teacher discourse and code choice in a Swedish EFL classroom2012In: Teachers' Roles in Second Language Learning: Classroom Applications of Sociocultural Theory / [ed] YOON, Bogum; KIM, Hoe Kyeung, Hershey, PA: IGI Global, 2012, p. 81-98Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, examples from classroom interaction are presented to illustrate how languagefunctions in and is influenced by the sociocultural setting of the EFL classroom. The chapterfeatures two distinct focal points: First, the predominant use of English by the teacher and theminimal use of English by the students are proposed as instrumental activities where English canbe considered a mediating semiotic tool. I suggest that English-language interaction in the EFLclassroom represents Vygotsky‘s concept of a social semiotic tool that is specifically related to aninstitutional context (Wertsch 1998). Conversely, the second focus of the chapter is on theinverse use of Swedish, which mainly features as the students‘ language of social speech and theteacher‘s language of regulatory, disciplinary discourse. The teacher‘s code choice and theestablished practice of code-switching thus serve to redirect the students‘ focus, either toengaging in the learning of English, or to behaving according to the institutional context.

    Who's Swearing Now?: The Social Aspects of Conversational Swearing2012Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Who’s Swearing Now? represents an investigation of how people actually swear, illustrated by a collection of over 500 spontaneous swearing utterances along with their social and linguistic contexts. The book features a focus on the use of eight swear words: ass, bitch, cunt, damn, dick, fuck, hell, shit and their possible inflections or derivations, e.g., asshole or motherfucker, offering a solution to the controversial issue of defining swear words and swearing by limiting the investigation to the core set of words most common to previous swearing studies. The specific focus results in accurate depictions of contextualized swearing utterances. Precise frequency counts are thus enabled which, along with offensiveness ratings of contextualized and non-contextualized swearing, enable a clarification of The Swearing Paradox, referring to the phenomenon of frequently used swear words also being those which traditionally are judged to be the most offensive.

    The book revisits the relationship between gender and swear word usage, but considers the distribution based on the core subset of swear words, revealing similarities where others have claimed differences. Significantly, Who’s Swearing Now? considers the aspect of race with regards to swear word usage, and reveals behavioral differences between, for example, White and African American males and females with regards to word preferences as well as social impetuses for and effects of swearing. Questionnaire and interview data supplement the swearing utterances, revealing participants’ individual credos about their own use or non-use of swear words and, interestingly, about others’ allowed or ideally prohibited use of swear words. These sets of data present thought-provoking and often entertaining statements regarding the unwritten set of rules governing swearing behavior. Who’s Swearing Now? concludes with close analyses of four recent and highly publicized incidences of public swear word usage, considered in light of the spontaneous swearing utterances, speaker and addressee variables such as gender, race and age, and perceptions of offensiveness and propriety.

    Symbolic spaces of everyday life: work and leisure at home2006In: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 27, no 2, p. 119-132Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents an analysis of the role of the media in the symbolic construction of work and leisure at home. Dealing with individuals who represent a post-industrial and cultural labour market and who work mainly at home, the analysis focuses upon the ritual transformations of everyday life and the role of the media within it. Leaning on social interactionist Erwin Goffman and his concepts of regions and frames, as well as a dimension of the materiality of culture, this analysis combines a perspective on media use as ritual, transformations in everyday life and the organization of material space. From this perspective, the discussion penetrates the symbolic dimension of media use in defining borders of behaviour and activities in relations to work and leisure at home.

    Ungdomskulturens don Quijote-dimension: medier och kulturell smak i Estland och Sverige2006In: Locus, ISSN 1100-3197, no 1, p. 19-31Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    På samma sätt som skillnaden mellan hur don Quijote såg på världen och hur den verkligen var beskaffad, finns en skillnad i ungdomskulturen mellan föreställningar om verkligheten och verkligheten som den faktiskt ser ut. Artikelförfattaren tar avstamp i Pierre Bourdieus tankar om hur smak för viss slags kultur kan dröja kvar trots att samhället förändras radikalt. En sådan förändring kan dagens ungdomar i Estland sägas ha varit med om. De var barn när helt andra förutsättningar rådde för medier och kultur i deras land. Vad tycker då ungdomar i Estland är bra film och litteratur? Och hur förhåller sig deras smak till svenska ungdomars preferenser?
