    Naturen består av "grönt": Kvantitativ studie av identifikationsmöjligheter i svensk barn- och skollitteratur 1750–20152018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 60 credits / 90 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine if the Swedish ethnocentrism influences the education in biology in Swedish school: if students with different ethnical background have unequal opportunities to identification due to inequality in representation in Swedish school books, and of the current Swedish curriculum Lgr11 and the previous curriculum Lpo94 have had any effect on representation in Swedish school books. Students with non-Swedish ethnical background generally perform less well in science than students with Swedish ethnical background. It can only be partially explained by socio-economic factors or language skills. However, norm-based exclusion could be a major factor. This study focus on normative exclusion through invisibilizing. It reports an intersectional quantitative study of depiction of age, ethnicity, gender and national minorities in Swedish children and school books 1750–2015. It is not an analysis of text books as such but rather an analysis of values shown by purchases of educational material. The analyses revealed both long-term trends and shorter fluctuationsin the degree of depictions as well as in the degree of exclusion/inclusion. The study cannot find any detectable increase in ethnic or gender inclusion during the late 20thand the 21thcentury. Therefore, any significant positive effects of the national Swedish curricula Lpo94 and Lgr11 and the focus of core values (“värdegrund”) can be excluded.

    Skrivande på gymnasiet: Perspektiv på skrivutveckling och textkompetens2018Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Elevernas skrivutveckling når aldrig ett slutmål – nya genrer och nytt innehåll innebär nya utmaningar och fler steg i utvecklingen mot en avancerad skriftspråkskompetens. En utvecklande skrivundervisning behöver göra eleverna förberedda att möta dessa utmaningar, både under gymnasietiden och i kommande studier och yrkesliv.

    Artikeln föreskriver inte en specifik teoribildning eller en utvald skrivpedagogisk inriktning som svar på hur undervisningen kan möta elevernas behov. Den betonar istället att lärare behöver många redskap och göra medvetna val bland dessa i planeringen av en skrivundervisning som ser till alla delar i den skriftspråkliga kompetensen.

    Artikeln resonerar kring de tendenser som genom åren har präglat skrivundervisningen. Hur ska dagens lärare förhålla sig till olika synsätt och inriktningar? En breddad skrivundervisning förespråkas som på olika sätt främjar utvecklingen av elevernas skriftspråkliga kompetens.

    Bygga och värdera kunskap: Texter av vetenskaplig karaktär2018Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln handlar om vetenskapligt skrivande. Många läroböcker och skrivhandledningar tar upp den vetenskapliga textens disposition, språk och stil. Här ligger i stället fokus på hur övningar i att värdera kunskap och information kan främja ett kritiskt-analytiskt förhållningssätt som en grundläggande förutsättning för att kunna skriva texter av vetenskaplig karaktär.

    Abstract [sv]

    I artikeln diskuteras handledningspraktiker vid universitet och högskolor i Sverige och i Finland ur ett jämförande perspektiv. Diskussionen bygger på de kommunikativa skillnader vi iakttagit mellan inspelningar av sverigesvenska och finlandssvenska handledningssamtal, bland annat vad gäller hur råd ges och tas emot, hur deltagarna hanterar den inneboende asymmetrin samt hur pronomen används under ett handledningssamtal. De empiriska observationerna av handledningspraktiker i autentiska handledningssamtal relateras till två svenskspråkiga högskolepedagogiska vägledningar för uppsatshandledning, en från Sverige och en från Finland. De kommunikativa skillnader vi noterat i de sverigesvenska och de finlandssvenska handledningssamtalen återspeglas i de två studerade handböckerna. Vad gäller såväl handledningssamtalen som handledningsmanualerna ser vi en större tendens till att tona ner asymmetrier och framhäva det kollektiva i de sverigesvenska handledningspraktikerna, medan de finlandssvenska handledningspraktikerna uppvisar en tydligare orientering mot individuellt ansvar och en mer oproblematisk inställning till de institutionella rollerna som handledare och student.

    Alternativa fakta i 1300-talets krönikor: Olika perspektiv i senmedeltida historiografi på olyckan vid Clemens V:s kröning 13052018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to analyse the construction of a historical event in late medieval chronicles, in a way that increases our understanding of the mechanisms behind historiography. The analysis is based on how the coronation of Pope Clement V in 1305 and the accident which then took place, in which a wall crashed and killed a number of people, is depicted in a selection of 14th century chronicles, mainly from France. This event has been largely overlooked by previous research on Clement V and the Avignon Papacy, which has tended to emphasise its meaning as a bad omen for the pope. Through a close reading of the chronicles inspired by a comparative methodological approach and the theoretical framework of Suzanne Fleischman this thesis proves that the French chronicles do not give much actual support for the interpretation of the accident as a bad omen and that the event occurs in multiple versions, which can be explained by the chroniclers’ different attitudes towards the alliance between Pope Clement and King Philip the Fair of France. The different versions are dependent on the texts’ contrasting aims and uses of narratives and facts, and is ultimately defined by the communicative situation between writer and reader.

    Den KRAVfyllda handelsplatsen: Det vardagliga arbetet i en miljöcertifierad livsmedelsbutik2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Butikscertifiering utgör en växande trend inom detaljhandeln i Sverige och särskilt för livsmedelsbutiker. Till skillnad från certifiering och märkning av enskilda produkter som sedan 1990-talet utvecklats för att hjälpa konsumenter att välja ”rätt” enligt rådande miljönormer, berör butikscertifiering hela butiken som organisation. Genom en butikscertifiering ställs krav dels på butikens eget, direkta miljöansvar, dels på butikens påverkan på konsumenters förutsättningar att göra miljöanpassade val i handeln med livsmedel. Syftet med studien som redovisas här är att bidra med empiriskt grundad kunskap till den företagsekonomiska organisations- och marknadsföringsforskningen om standarder och certifiering som styrningsform för miljöarbete på marknader. Detta sker via en kvalitativ studie där ledning och personal i elva livsmedelsbutiker i Stockholmsområdet har intervjuats med fokus på deras arbete med KRAVs miljöstandard för butik. Den övergripande forskningsfrågan lyder Hur påverkar butikscertifiering organiseringen av butiken? Med organisering avses här vardagliga arbetsrutiner, lärande i organisationen och marknadsföring.

    Health literacy as knowledge construction: Learning about health by expanding objects and crossing boundaries in networked activities2018In: Learning, Culture and Social Interaction, ISSN 2210-6561, E-ISSN 2210-657XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we examine health literacy as a set of practices that unfold in networked activity systems. Focusing on the literacy practices of pregnant couples and parents of children with heart defect, we show that they participate in multiple activities with the object of constructing knowledge about the child's condition. The contexts for these activities are doctor-patient con- sultations and the parents' online searching and sharing. The study builds on ethnographic in- terviews, recorded medical consultations and collection of texts from online forums, blogs and social media. An analysis based on literacy practices and activity theory shows that these ac- tivities enable parents' learning, but they can also be restricting as to the mediating tools they provide and the rules that dictate the tools. Additionally, the object of learning about heart defect is not always clearly formulated and stable but it keeps alternating and expanding. As a result, the parents cross boundaries between activities with different mediating tools, rules and com- munities and thereby different possibilities for learning. We show that doing health literacy is comprised by a set of recontextualised practices of looking for medical and experiential knowl- edge and it is by a combination of the two that meaningful learning is achieved.

    Likvärdigt skydd för mänskliga rättigheter?: En analys av Bosphorus-presumtionen och dess tillämplighet på anpassningen av svenska asylregler till EU-rättens miniminivå2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In 2015, the European Union (EU) was facing the largest migration crisis in modern history. In light of the high reception of asylum seekers in Sweden during the autumn of the same year, a temporary law (2016:752) was adopted which restricted the possibilities of obtaining a permanentresidence permit and of family reunification. The law has received criticism for being contrary to Swedish convention commitments, especially the right to respect for family life and the prohibition of discrimination according to Articles 8 and 14 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (the Convention). Against the backdrop of this criticism, this thesis aims to examine whether the so-called Bosphorus presumption, also known as the presumption of equivalent protection, could be applicable in a hypothetic case where Sweden is brought before the European Court of Human Rights (the Court) for violating the Convention as a result of the temporary law. The criteria for the application of the presumption are firstly that the intrusive measure, here the restriction of the right to family reunification, can be said to fall within the scope of the strict international legal obligations of the state, meaning that the state can be said to have exercised a certain amount of discretion and to have enjoyed a certain margin of manoeuvre. The conclusion of this thesis is that likely would be considered to have exercised discretion as well as enjoyed a margin of manoeuvre when restricting the right to family reunification by adopting the temporary law. This conclusion is mainly based on the fact that the international legal obligations in this case flow from directives, which are binding on member states only as to the result to be achieved, and leave the choice of form and methods to the authorities of the member state. Furthermore, the directives which the temporary law is based on are so-called minimum directives, which allow for the member states to provide a higher level of protection.

    Hur bra har den svenska integrationskontexten varit på att främja balanserad tvåspråkighet?2018In: Nordand: nordisk tidsskrift for andrespråksforskning, ISSN 0809-9227, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 107-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates how good the Swedish integration context has been at promoting balanced bilingualism among adult children of Turkish immigrants. Balanced bilingualism has been one of the goals of Sweden’s multicultural language policy. An extensive comparison with corresponding groups in Rotterdam and Berlin is also presented. The data come from 430 participants in the project The Integration of the European Second Generation, of whom 133 resided in Stockholm. Balanced bilingualism is defined on the basis of the participants’ self-assessed speaking and writing skills in Turkish and their respective second languages. The results show that only a minority of the second-generation Turks were balanced bilinguals in Stockholm, which constituted the lowest rate among the cities. At the same time, the Stockholm group displayed the highest skill levels in the second language among the three cities. The analysis points out that the inclusive multi-ethnic context in Stockholm had a positive effect on second-language skills, while the Turkish group’s relatively small size and concentration coupled with the deficient implementation of mother-tongue instruction had a negative effect on Turkish skills. The other cities’ more segregated and enclavelike integration contexts seem instead to better promote Turkish skills and thereby to lead to a higher occurrence of balanced bilingualism.

    Geografi som medborgarbildning2018In: Geografiska Notiser, ISSN 0016-724X, Vol. 76, no 4, p. 98-108Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår samtid erbjuder stora utmaningar inför framtiden. Frågor om naturresurser, migration, segregering och inte minst allt mer ansträngda ekologiska gränser för vår planet är bara några av de stora och osäkra frågor som vår tid måste handskas med. Dessa frågor och många andra angelägna utmaningar ligger inom geografiämnets domän och geografiämnet har därmed en särskilt viktig funktion i att erbjuda eleverna såväl holistiska perspektiv som fördjupade kunskaper där de kan utveckla sitt rumsliga medvetande i en globaliserad värld. Men utmaningarna möts inte bara med kunskap. Lika viktigt är deras engagemang för världen omkring dem och viljan och modet att använda kunskaperna för att aktivt delta i det medborgerliga livet. Att utveckla elevernas kunskaper, attityder och förmågor för att delta och agera som aktiva och ansvariga medborgare under och efter sin skoltid kan beskrivas som medborgarbildning (Campbell, 2012; Sandahl, 2015). Centralt för denna medborgarbildning är handlingskompetens, det vill säga en förmåga att göra väl underbyggda och medvetna val, både veta vad som ska och kan göras, färdighet att kunna göra det och veta varför. I den här texten kommer jag att argumentera för en geografiundervisning med ett tydligt mål: att skapa handlingskomptenta elever som tror på sin framtid samtidigt som undervisningen är ärlig med problemens komplexitet.

    Learner Corpus Anonymization in the Age of GDPR: Insights from the Creation of a Learner Corpus of Swedish2018In: Proceedings of 7th Workshop on NLP for Computer Assisted Language Learning at SLTC 2018, Linköping, Sweden, 2018, p. 47-56Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports on the status of learner corpus anonymization for the ongoing research infrastructure project SweLL. The main project aim is to deliver and make available for research a well-annotated corpus of essays written by second language (L2) learners of Swedish. As the practice shows, annotation of learner texts is a sensitive process demanding a lot of compromises between ethical and legal demands on the one hand, and research and technical demands, on the other. Below, is a concise description of the current status of pseudonymization of language learner data to ensure anonymity of the learners, with numerous examples of the above-mentioned compromises.

    Error Coding of Second-Language Learner Texts Based on Mostly Automatic Alignment of Parallel Corpora2018In: Proceedings of CLARIN Annual Conference 2018 / [ed] Inguna Skadina, Maria Eskevich, 2018, p. 181-184Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Error coding of second-language learner text, that is, detecting, correcting and annotating errors, is a cumbersome task which in turn requires interpretation of the text to decide what the errors are. This paper describes a system with which the annotator corrects the learner text by editing it prior to the actual error annotation. During the editing, the system automatically generates a parallel corpus of the learner and corrected texts. Based on this, the work of the annotator consists of three independent tasks that are otherwise often conflated in error coding: correcting the learner text, repairing inconsistent alignments, and performing the actual error annotation.

    "Jag vakna upp och va Suedi": En studie om identitet och grupptillhörighet i svensk hiphop2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Hiphop har under en längre tid fungerat som ett forum för individer att utrycka sitt motstånd mot politiska åtaganden samtidigt som det har fungerat som ett forum där olika identiteter skapas och uttrycks. Tidigare studier har bland annat visat att hiphop skildrar ämnen som rasism, etnicitet och kultur, någonting som i många fall ligger som grund till förtryck. Med utgångspunkt i det intersektionella perspektivet som belyser hur samhällets maktstrukturer formas och upprätthålls undersöker denna studie hur kategorierna etnicitet, hudfärg, kultur, klass och språk utrycks och förmedlas i samtida svensk hiphop. Studien syftar på att undersöka hur eventuella intersektioner som uppstår mellan dessa kategorier sammanfaller med identitetsskapande och utanförskap. För att undersöka hur detta kommer till uttryck anläggas en kritisk diskursanalys på tre svenska hiphoplåtar skapade av fyra aktuella artister i Sverige. Resultatet visar att den svenska hiphopen gestaltar olika typer av samhällshierarkier där kategorierna etnicitet, hudfärg, kultur, klass och språk ligger till grund för dessa. Det påvisades även att ens identitet är beroende av omgivningens syn på dessa kategorier samt deras roll i samhället, vilket kan leda till känslor av utanförskap. I det utanförskapet som utsatta individer upplever finnas i samhället blir hiphop en accepterande gemenskap där olika identiteter tillåts ta plats.

    The Peer Context of Dieting: The Relationship between Young Adults’ Dieting Frequency and Their Friends’ Weight-Related Characteristics2018In: International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, ISSN 1661-7827, E-ISSN 1660-4601, Vol. 15, no 12, article id 2744Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research found that weight-related behaviors and body weight tends to be similar between individuals and peers. Rather little is known how different domains of weight-related behaviors co-evolve in peer networks. Hence, this study explores how young adults’ self-reported dieting relates to perceived body weight and weight control behaviors of their peers. A Swedish two-wave panel survey with ego-centric network data was analyzed with negative binomial regression models. Nineteen-year-old men and women in the first wave, and 23-year-olds in the follow-up sample were examined. Men at age 19 showed an increased dieting propensity when being exposed to underweight peers. Compared to men, women’s dieting at age 19 was more strongly related to their own body image concerns, and peers’ weight-related behaviors like physical exercising and unhealthy eating. The associations between dieting and peers’ weight-related characteristics for men and women deteriorated from age 19 to age 23. The findings suggest that women’s dieting—in comparison to dieting in men—is more strongly related to the peer context. The decrease in associations between men’s and women’s dieting and peers’ weight-related characteristics from age 19 to age 23 may reflect a weakened importance of the peer context in early adulthood.

    World Literatures: Exploring the Cosmopolitan-Vernacular Exchange2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Placing itself within the burgeoning field of world literary studies, the organising principle of this book is that of an open-ended dynamic, namely the cosmopolitan-vernacular exchange.

    As an adaptable comparative fulcrum for literary studies, the notion of the cosmopolitan-vernacular exchange accommodates also highly localised literatures. In this way, it redresses what has repeatedly been identified as a weakness of the world literature paradigm, namely the one-sided focus on literature that accumulates global prestige or makes it on the Euro-American book market.

    How has the vernacular been defined historically? How is it inflected by gender? How are the poles of the vernacular and the cosmopolitan distributed spatially or stylistically in literary narratives? How are cosmopolitan domains of literature incorporated in local literary communities? What are the effects of translation on the encoding of vernacular and cosmopolitan values?

    Ranging across a dozen languages and literature from five continents, these are some of the questions that the contributions attempt to address.

    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetets syfte är att undersöka hur sydkoreansk media rapporterade om det gemensamma nordsydkoreanskadamishockeylaget som deltog i vinter-OS i Pyongchang OS 2018. Studien baseras påartiklar från tre av de största tidningarna i Sydkorea, med skild politisk bakgrund under periodenjanuari-mars 2018. Innan det sammanfattas också relationerna mellan länderna i fråga och derasgemensamma sporthistoria för att ge ett tydligt perspektiv på bakgrunden till händelserna ochrapporteringen.Uppsatsen visar hur tidningarna inte skrev överväldigande positivt eller negativt. Istället varrapporteringen likartad innan OS men sedan splittrades rapporteringen över de politiska blocken. Deundersökta politiska mitten och vänster tidningarna blev mer positiva närmre spelens slut, till skillnad frånden undersökta konservativa tidningen som var fortsatt kritisk.

    Abstract [en]

    The possibility to declare a contract ineffective was introduced into the field of public procurement through Directive 2007/66/EC. The Court of Justice had called illegal direct award of contracts the most serious breach of Community law in the field of public procurement. Ineffectiveness as a remedy was considered to be an efficient tool against such infringements. The aforementioned directive leaves to each EU member state to decide if the ineffectiveness of a contract implies the cancellation of only the remaining contractual obligations or whether it includes those already performed. If the former approach is chosen, other penalties should be imposed onto the contracting authority, which correlate to the performed contractual obligations. In any case, terminating a contract that has been declared ineffective shortly after it has been signed should in the majority of instances be a fairly simple process. Declaring a contract ineffective at a later stage, however, where the parties have fulfilled some or all of their commitments according to the contract, raises some interesting issues. This paper aims to investigate the meaning of contractual ineffectiveness, in particular when occurring at a later stage, in Swedish public procurement law.

    Abstract [en]

    Human trafficking is the fastest growing and the third largest transnational crime. It is driven by the demand for commercial sexual services and cheap labour, and the ample supply of vulnerable people to exploit together with a prevailing system of impunity makes it a highly profitable crime. It imposes grave human rights violations upon its victims, and has devastating effects on society. A global agreement to combat human trafficking – the Palermo Protocol – was adopted by the United Nations in the year 2000. This global agreement provides a legal definition for human trafficking and requires states to take actions to prevent human trafficking, prosecute the perpetrators and protect the victims. Most states have joined this agreement and have made subsequent efforts to implement it. The Council of Europe has adopted a specific convention that even strengthens it. Despite the many efforts to combat human trafficking the number of victims continue to increase and the number of convictions remain low. Some scholars suggest it is because of the incomplete or lack of national implementations, while other scholars suggest the international legal framework is inadequate. The main purpose of this thesis is to examine whether the international legal framework is adequate to combat human trafficking, and to discuss strengthening options. It uses a classical analytical legal method that examines and analyses the most relevant international agreements. Conclusions are that the Palermo Protocol focuses mainly on prosecution, requires too little preventing and protecting measures, and has a weak compliance mechanism. Human rights treaties also address human trafficking but their weak compliance mechanisms make them ill equipped to compel states to act. To combat human trafficking, measures to prevent, prosecute and protect are all crucial, and such measures can probably best be enforced by strengthening all relevant legal areas (human rights law, labour law, migrant law, refugee law and humanitarian law) and engaging all parts of society.

    Pastoralists, Mobility and Conservation: Shifting rules of access and control of grazing resources in Kenya's northern drylands2019Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Pastoral mobility is seen as the most effective strategy to make use of constantly shifting resources. In northern Kenya, mobile pastoralism as a highly-valued strategy to manage grazing areas and exploit resource variability is becoming more complex. Policy and project implementation has historically been driven by the imperative to secure land tenure and improve pasture in bounded areas through State-led settlement schemes. Relatively recently, increased (inter)national interests in nature and wildlife conservation on community land in the northern pastoralist regions see conservation and development as crucial and urgent requirements for stimulating economic growth and security. This study presents the case of Samburu pastoral mobility within the context of such shifting social and environmental circumstances. It focuses on changing rules of access and control of livestock resources. These transformations are analysed in the context of the large-scale establishment of community conservancies and what role these conservancies play in the actual use and transformation of space for pastoralists. Empirically, this thesis is based on a total of eighteen months fieldwork including semi-structured interviews and observations in Samburu, Isiolo and Laikipia. It demonstrates how the principal of reciprocal access to pasture between pastoralists is giving way to conditional access based on membership of more formal, territory-based institutions such as community conservancies. It further shows how access to private land may be open for negotiation through the formation of grazing arrangements, which are also used to control pastoralists’ movements beyond enclosed land. In spite of a rhetoric acknowledging the multiple benefits of livestock mobility, current policy entails a continuation of past policy and project implementation where prescriptions still revolve around conservation enclosures and settlement politics. The thesis concludes that such processes of territoriality are likely to produce unexpected and potentially disappointing outcomes, while struggle and conflict persist.

    Hur kan man lära studenter att undvika plagiering?2018In: Pedagogiska ambassadörer berättar om sina utvecklingsprojekt, 2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är lätt att studenter som lär sig ett främmande språk hämnar i plagiatsituationer eftersom de måste kombinera språkinlärning med kulturvetenskapliga och litterära kompetenser. De vill ha en snabb tillgång till fakta och använder ganska ofta Wikipedia för att stödja en argumentation. Projektet innehåller ett experiment där studenter i franska fick arbeta med Wikipedia källor för att diskutera deras användning. Kan man stödja en källkritisk förmåga i en kurs på ett främmande språk?

    Delayed Sleep in Winter Related to Natural Daylight Exposure among Arctic Day Workers2018In: Clocks & Sleep, E-ISSN 2624-5175, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 105-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Natural daylight exposures in arctic regions vary substantially across seasons. Negative consequences have been observed in self-reports of sleep and daytime functions during the winter but have rarely been studied in detail. The focus of the present study set out to investigate sleep seasonality among indoor workers using objective and subjective measures. Sleep seasonality among daytime office workers (n = 32) in Kiruna (Sweden, 67.86° N, 20.23° E) was studied by comparing the same group of workers in a winter and summer week, including work and days off at the weekend, using actigraphs (motion loggers) and subjective ratings of alertness and mood. Actigraph analyses showed delayed sleep onset of 39 min in winter compared to the corresponding summer week (p < 0.0001) and shorter weekly sleep duration by 12 min (p = 0.0154). A delay of mid-sleep was present in winter at workdays (25 min, p < 0.0001) and more strongly delayed during days off (46 min, p < 0.0001). Sleepiness levels were higher in winter compared to summer (p < 0.05). Increased morning light exposure was associated with earlier mid-sleep (p < 0.001), while increased evening light exposure was associated with delay (p < 0.01). This study confirms earlier work that suggests that lack of natural daylight delays the sleep/wake cycle in a group of indoor workers, despite having access to electric lighting. Photic stimuli resulted in a general advanced sleep/wake rhythm during summer and increased alertness levels.

    Symbolic Violence in Academic Life: A Study on How Junior Scholars are Educated in the Art of Getting Funded2018In: Minerva, ISSN 0026-4695, E-ISSN 1573-1871Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is widely recognized that universities all around Europe have taken on a more market-oriented approach that has changed the core of academic work life. This has led to a precarious situation for many junior scholars, who have to seek research funding to cover their own wages in an increasingly fierce competition over scarce resources. Thus, at present, research funding is a Gordian knot that must be cut by each individual researcher. As a response to this situation, some Swedish universities provide guidance to junior scholars on how to navigate in an increasingly entrepreneurial academia through open lectures by senior and successful professors. In this paper, I study these lectures as socialization processes and the role of symbolic violence in the justification of a competitive academic work ethos as well as a pragmatic acceptance of the prevailing funding conditions. The aim is to explore the role of a subtle form of power wielding that is not immediately understood or recognized as power, but that nonetheless reproduces a market-like behavior and legitimizes a career system marked by uncertainty, shortcomings and contradictions.

    Fysisk aktivitet på fritidshem: Styrningsrationaliteter i fritidshemmets styrdokument2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Att vara fysisk aktiv och anta det som hälsoförebyggande livsstil har blivit ett hett debattområde runt om i världen. Metodens ansats utgår från diskursanalytisk ansats och Foucaults teoretiska perspektiv för styrningsrationalitet i skolan. Resultat och slutsatser är att lärarens expertis och påverkande förmågor ska fostra eleven att vilja välja en aktiv livsstil. De styrningsrationaliteter jag identifierat som framkommer i analysen är: en restriktiv styrningsrationalitet - en begränsande styrning inom ramar för önskvärda normer, en fostrande styrningsrationalitet - ska utgöra elevens utveckling insikt av självstyre, frivillig styrningsrationalitet – eleven ska intresseväckas och uppmuntras att vilja välja det önskvärda. Sedan finns ju en avsaknad av styrningsrationalitet gällande vila och återhämtning samt balansen mellan det och fysisk aktivitet. diskursiv praxis – en styrningsrationalitet - gör oss styrbara genom kommunikativa maktmedel

    Archaeological and Historical Materials as a Means to Explore Finnish Crop History2018In: Environmental Archaeology, ISSN 1461-4103, E-ISSN 1749-6314Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Northern Europe, barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) has been cultivated for almost 6000 years. Thus far, 150-year-old grains from historical collections have been used to investigate the distribution of barley diversity and how the species has spread across the region. Genetic studies of archaeobotanical material from agrarian sites could potentially clarify earlier migration patterns and cast further light on the origin of barley landraces. In this study, we aimed to evaluate different archaeological and historical materials with respect to DNA content, and to explore connections between Late Iron Age and medieval barley populations and historical samples of barley landraces in north-west Europe. The material analysed consisted of archaeological samples of charred barley grains from four sites in southern Finland, and historical material, with 33 samples obtained from two herbaria and the seed collections of the Swedish museum of cultural history.

    The DNA concentrations obtained from charred archaeological barley remains were too low for successful KASP genotyping confirming previously reported difficulties in obtaining aDNA from charred remains. Historical samples from herbaria and seed collection confirmed previously shown strong genetic differentiation between two-row and six-row barley. Six-row barley accessions from northern and southern Finland tended to cluster apart, while no geographical structuring was observed among two-row barley. Genotyping of functional markers revealed that the majority of barley cultivated in Finland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century was late-flowering under increasing day-length, supporting previous findings from northern European barley.

    Becoming the expert constructing health knowledge in epistemic communities online2018In: Information, Communication and Society, ISSN 1369-118X, E-ISSN 1468-4462Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From a discourse analytic framework, the article analyses health blogs and patient’s forum discussions in which parents to children with congenital heart defects recontextualize medical professional knowledge and share their own experiences. The study show how the two types of online media may serve as a means for parents to attain expert status in their own case by sharing lay knowledge expressed as an amalgamation of the two key perspectives – professional and experienced – as an indivisible unit. Monological discourses, such as narrating, in blogs and more direct and immediate responses in forum discussions are noted as examples of differences in how medical facts are explained and negotiated, how advice is provided and how patient expertise is created. The study also show how blogs and especially forum discussions are used to problematize the validity of actions and opinions of medical staff. The role of developing patient expertise in epistemic communities online may therefore come with a risk of spreading misrepresentation of medical cases.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article we show and discuss the results from an empirical study with a social constructivist perspective, where we explore the combination of two socially and interactively constructed categories: senior citizens and young persons. In the study the paradoxical discourse that surrounds beliefs about usage of ICT in the two different stages of life is highlighted. The data is collected from a blog of a senior citizen and from media interviews with the blogger. The analysis points to the beliefs and expectations that are expressed regarding the use of digital information and interaction technology, and contributes to the discussion of the place and role of senior citizens in today’s society.

    Förpliktigande samspel som vardagsrutin – en fallstudie av Borlänge kommun2018In: Styra och leda med tillit: forskning och praktik: forskningsantologi från tillitsdelegationen / [ed] Louise Bringselius, Stockholm: Norstedts Juridik AB, 2018, p. 167-195Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Förändringsarbetet mot mer tillitsfulla relationer i den kommunala förvaltningen i Borlänge initierades 2008 och pågår fortfarande aktivt ett decennium senare. Studien belyser centrala förutsättningar för att bygga och underhålla tillitsfulla relationer inom den kommunala förvaltningen. Teoretiska utgångspunkter är dels teori om medarbetarskap och ömsesidigt ansvar genom ”förpliktigande samspel”, dels teori om förändringsarbete som vardagsrutin. Metodologiskt har dokumentstudier, deltagande observationer, intervjuer och fokusgruppsintervjuer genomförts. En fördjupning har gjorts till upplevelser hos personalen på Individ- och familjeomsorgen (IFO) inom socialtjänsten. En central slutsats är att tillitsfulla relationer tar tid, både att utveckla och att underhålla. Ambitionen att minska misstro och öka tillit kräver både uthållighet i en kultur- och organisationsförändring över tid och en mellanmänsklig tillgänglighet i vardagen. I Borlänge har ett framgångsrikt värdegrundsarbete skapat goda förutsättningar för detta.

    Interkulturalitet i svenska läroböcker i ämnet svenska som andraspråk (SVA)2016Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay, I examine how a number of textbooks in Swedish as a second language helps with an intercultural perspective through text analysis. The review of textbooks are based on Lahdenperäs (2004) intercultural learning processes which consists of three aspects of learning and understanding of others and their own culture. There are a number of texts from the textsbooks examined by close reading which were selected after reading the headlines that suggest interculturalism. The purpose of my study was to find out how the intercultural approach is visualized in the selected texts that were examined. The investigation has shown that the textbooks support an intercultural perspective. Furthermore, it shows that teachers have a crucial role for the intercultural perspective as part of the teaching.

    Att bedöma elevers kunskaper under APL: En studie om yrkeslärares och handledares uppfattning om att bedöma elever på Restaurang- och Livsmedelsprogrammet under deras arbetsplatsförlagda lärande (APL).2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I likhet med övriga yrkesprogram, ingår arbetsplatsförlagd utbildning (APL) som en viktig del i Restaurang- och Livsmedelsprogrammet. Detta då eleverna inte enbart kan tillgodogöra sig alla de kunskaper som krävs för yrket i en skolmiljö. Dock visar flera rapporter från Skolverket och Skolinspektionen att samarbetet mellan skola och APL-platser brister.

    Syftet med studien är att få en ökad kunskap om hur yrkeslärare och handledare samverkar kring bedömning av elevers kunskaper under APL samt vilka förmågor och färdigheter eleverna bedöms på under APL. Genom att använda kvalitativa intervjuer, med sex yrkeslärare och sex handledare gavs möjlighet att få en större förståelse för hur dessa två grupper uppfattar och beskriver samarbetet med att bedöma elever under APL.

    Resultatet av studien visar hur dessa två grupper har svårt att mötas i ett gemensamt språk kring bedömning. Som en följd av detta försöker yrkeslärare bland annat skapa egna bedömningsmatriser, ett sätt att översätta betygskriterierna, vilket skapar otydlighet hos handledare om vad som ska bedömas. Vidare framträder hur yrkeslärare och handledare inte tolkar värdeorden i betygskriterierna på samma sätt. Vilket ytterligare kan bidra till att kommunikationen brister. Slutligen visar resultaten att yrkeslärare och handledare beskriver bedömning av elevens förmågor och färdigheter utifrån den kontext de själva verkar inom, där yrkeslärare bedömer eleverna utifrån skolans perspektiv och handledare efter ett branschperspektiv, att de ska bli anställningsbara. Detta skapar svårighet, hos eleven, att veta vad denne verkligen blir bedömd på under sin APL.

    Surfplattan som stödresurs för barn med funktionsvariationen autism: En kvalitativ textanalys med utgångspunkt i vetenskapliga artiklar2018Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte är att belysa hur en surfplatta kan stödja och främja barn med funktionsvariationen autism i sin kommunikativa förmåga och i sitt sociala samspel. Studiens tidigare forskning går igenom kommunikation och surfplattan som stödresurs för barn med autism, denna forskning pekar på attbarnen kan få stöd av en surfplatta men att forskningen är bristfällig. Det är en kvalitativ textanalys där empirin bestått utav vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet av denna studie visade att surfplattan är en bra kommunikations stödresurs som har många positiva egenskaper, däribland att den är lätt att individanpassa, lätt att ta med och socialt accepterad. Vidare visade även studien att det sociala samspelet är något som är nödvändigt för att kommunikationen ska utvecklas hos barn med funktionsvariationen autism och att därför surfplattan stödjer både kommunikation och socialt samspel, samtidigt.
