Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
”Sprogforbistring mellem naboer” is a series of articles with the main purpose of shedding light over the unique language community of Scandinavia. The three languages, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian, are similar in many ways and the countries have a long common history. However, research shows that the mutual understanding between the Scandinavian neighbours have reduced during the last 30 years, and especially the younger generations have difficulties understanding each other. Simultaneously, the English language is playing an increasingly bigger part of the Scandinavian societies. The purpose of the journalistic work is to introduce the reader to the subject from different angles, to give an explanation of the development and to open up for a discussion of whether it is a problem or not. The purpose is not to answer the question explicitly but to let the reader draw its own conclusions. The articles are geographically focused on the region of Øresund and vary in journalistic genre. The purpose is for the reader to feel informed, entertained and hopefully even to be able to relate to the experiences shared by the sources. The aim of the attached reflection paper is to discuss the work as a journalistic product and the work progress. Based on theories of news values, genre, method and ethics, the journalistic work is placed in a scientific context and the paper critically discusses the difficulties faced during the process, such as if the work is sufficiently problematic, if the articles follow the genre conventions and why it was a challenge to interview children.
