A Lesson in Community : Order and Disorder among Teachers in Malmö and Marseille (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna etnografiska studie tar sin utgångspunkt i ett jämförande fältarbete bland lärare på högstadieskolor i två sydligt situerade storstäder i Europa: Malmö i Sverige och Marseille i Frankrike. Studiens fokus ligger på hur lärare begripliggör och brottas med sitt uppdrag att forma och fostra ”goda” medborgare för en nationell gemenskap och sammanhållning. Genom att utforska lärarnas egna strävanden och stretanden i denna fråga belyses de idéer och praktiker som driver detta arbete framåt. Samtidigt synliggörs de vardagliga spänningar som emellanåt komplicerar lärarnas arbete. En central iakttagelse i denna studie är att lärare i både Sverige och Frankrike stundtals finner sig inneslutna i ett slags korstryck. Inpressade i detta kastas de mellan att å ena sidan eftersträva vissa på förhand fastslagna visioner och mål om gemensamt liv, å andra sidan kontinuerligt konfronteras med en oregelbunden och inte alla gånger följsam verklighet. Avhandlingen visar hur lärare handskas med detta korstryck; hur de i händelse av hinder och motstånd i sitt arbete försöker bringa ordning i vad de uppfattar och upplever som ett tillstånd av stor oreda i förhållande till sitt medborgardanande uppdrag. Sammantaget bidrar avhandlingen till ökad kunskap om lärares både levda yrkeserfarenheter och situerade praktiker i vardagen, liksom till en problematiserande diskussion om den roll och betydelse som lärare förväntar sig spela för det gemensamma livet i Sverige och Frankrike i stort.

Abstract [en]

This ethnographic study is based on comparative fieldwork among teachers at secondary schools in two southern situated cities in Europe: Malmö in Sweden and Marseille in France. The focus of the study is on how teachers make sense of and grapple with their mission to build and foster “good” citizens, which is intended to promote national community and unity. Exploring how the teachers strive and struggle to fulfil this mission provides a better insight into the ideas and practices that permeate their work. At the same time, the everyday tensions that occasionally complicate this task are highlighted. A crucial observation in this study is that teachers in both Sweden and France often find themselves confined to a kind of cross-pressure. Enclosed within it, teachers are torn between, on the one hand, endeavouring to reach certain visions and goals regarding how to instil a sense of national community in their pupils and, on the other, being confronted with an irregular and often far from pliable reality. This study shows how teachers are dealing with this cross-pressure, how – in case of hurdles and friction in their work – they try to maintain order in what they perceive and experience as being a state of great disorder in relation to their educational mission. The thesis contributes to increased knowledge of teachers’ lived professional experiences and situated practices in their day-to-day work. It also brings to light a problematising discussion about the role and importance that teachers expect themselves to play in relation to an overall idea of national community and unity in Sweden and France respectively.
