    Who is The New Human? En undersökning om presentation och representation i Moderna Museets utställning 'The New Human'2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Moderna Museet beskriver sin utställning The New Human som ett utforskande av människans livsvillkor och utställningens tematik behandlas i relation till det globala. I den här kandidatuppsatsen analyserar jag ett antal verk från utställningen The New Human på Moderna Museet i Stockholm, för att undersöka huruvida utställningen ger utrymme till andra perspektiv än de västerländska och vad det kan innebära att någonting beskrivs som globalt om det inte är det, samt vilken bild av det globala det då är som framställs. Det teoretiska perspektiv som formar undersökningen är Sara Ahmeds teorier om vithet. Min metod har varit att utgå från Ahmeds vithetens fenomenologi samt Stuart Halls teorier om representation och skapandet av ’den andre’. Uppsatsen är indelad i tre kapitel, där det första ger en presentation av utställningen och det andra samt tredje kapitlet innehåller analyser av de valda verken. Video är det medium genom vilka samtliga verk har skapats och min fördelning av videoverken baseras på huruvida de är dokumentärt eller fiktivt skildrade. Mina analyser visar att samtliga av de videoverk som jag har analyserat berör de frågor och teman som utställningen behandlar utifrån ett västerländskt perspektiv.

    Beauty Box: Filmstjärnor och skönhetskultur i det tidiga 1900-talets Sverige2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The object of this dissertation is the relationship between film, fashion and beauty concerning different understandings of femininity, with reference to the establishment of the star system and the making of celebrity culture, and how these were expressed through magazines and commercial ads in early 20th century Sweden. The period of time framing the discussion, from fin-de-siècle and onwards with specific focus on the 1920s and 1930s, corresponds to the course of publication of the Swedish magazine Filmjournalen. Star studies and reception studies make up the theoretical framework, offering an understanding of the popular press both as a source of knowledge for and as an intermediary of fashion and style, creating a wider network of texts and images and providing a context for how films were presented for Swedish, mainly female, audiences. Spectatorship is therefore considered from the viewpoint of address, in line with Miriam Hansen’s angle, analysing how a network of texts and images, exceeding the particular film, constitutes the positions of spectators. Film stars are understood as embodying different ideas; represented, negotiated, and incorporated in already existing lines of thoughts, drawing attention to questions of media presentation, and to the ideas appearing behind the beauty ideals and the aesthetics. The discussion on stars is narrowed down to concern three particular themes - consumerism, emancipation and physiognomy - when presupposing femininity as defined by appearance; considering cosmetics and fashion as providing practical, next-to-the-skin tools in this making, while film and journalism are working on a social, discursive level. Judith Butler’s account of performance and Teresa de Lauretis’ understanding of technologies of the self are significant for this study, as well as Richard Dyer’s approach, considering film stars as articulating the business of being an individual when representing familiar ways of feeling and thinking.

    Kontemporär konst: En undersökning av konstens fält i den digitala tillvaron utifrån konstnärerna Austin Lee, Darren Bader och Katja Novitskova2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Undersökningen behandlar kontemporär konst i en digital tillvaro. Hur konst som skapats i vår samtid aktualiseras med koppling till en digitaliserad värld, samt vilken påverkan detta får på konstens fält i ett större perspektiv. Genom att jämföra tre konstnärer vilka på olika sätt arbetar med internet som en central del i sina produktioner, undersöks hur internet och digitala referenser spelar in estetsikt samt strategiskt vid etablerandet av ett konstnärskap idag.

    Undersökningens görs genom text och bildanalys. Den huvudsakliga teoribilden utgår från Pierre Bourdieus fältteori vilket betraktar konst som ett sociologiskt fält inom vilket konstnärerna positioneras. Även teoretiska begrepp kring remediering och vad som sker vid förflyttandet av konst mellan olika uttrycks medium analyseras.

    I undersökningen behandlas frågeställningarna, på vilket sätt använder sig konstnärerna av digitala referenser i sina konstnärliga processer som en estetisk samt konstnärlig strategi? På vilket sätt omskrivs konstnärerna med koppling till internet? På vilket sätt definieras konstnärerna som specifikt samtida genom att arbeta med digitala referenser?

    Undersökningen visar att relationen mellan den digitala tillvaron och samtida konst kännetecknas av den växelverkan som tycks uppstå mellan historia, samtid och populärkultur. Detta kan ses som försök att bearbeta effekten av en totalt digitaliserad värld. Konstnärerna arbetar ofta med förhållandevis konventionella frågeställningar och uttryck, men de blir samtida specifikt genom digitala referenser.

    Avsikt och tolkning: En komparativ analys av samtida konstutställningar2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen berör utställandet av konst på etablerade museer i Stockholm. Primärmaterialet är de två utställningar med Marcus Schinwald och Louise Bourgeois som visades på Magasin III respektive Moderna Museet. Syftet är att se hur de curatorer på museerna arbetar samt förstå hur utställandet av konst reproducerar en institutions diskurs. Det teoretiska perspektivet bygger på en intersektionell analys med Foucaults diskursbegrepp och Pierre Bourdieus teorier angående habitus och kulturell kod samt Fred Wilson arbete som curator. Dispositionen består av redogörelser gällande Magasin III och Moderna Museet, intervjuer med respektive curator, samt recensioner och observationer ifrån varje utställning.

    Resultatet visar på hur de aktuella utställningarna ingår i en bredare diskurs med museerna som avsändare. Samtal med curators visar hur de själva betonat vissa aspekter hos det exponerade konstnärskapet och att recensenterna lägger störst tyngd vid dessa aspekter i sin positiva kritik. Därtill reproducerar Magasin IIIs utställning en humanistisk värdegrund medan utställningen på Moderna Museet cementerar traditionella könsnormer gällande hur kvinnligt konstnärskap tolkas.

    En spektakulär tillflykt: Fotografiska porträtt av kvinnliga dansare från 1800-talets mitt och slut2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna undersökning utgår från det tidiga teaterfotografiet genom att analysera visit- och kabinettkortsporträtt av kvinnliga dansare från perioderna 1862-66 och 1889-96. Syftet med uppsatsen är att visa hur de kvinnliga dansarna förmedlade sin artistiska identitet genom porträtten och hur framställningarna förhöll sig till frågor om offentlighet, genusnormer och klass. Undersökningen fokuserar i första delen på ett flertal dansare, medan den andra delen utgår ifrån Hildegard Lindzéns genombrott som artist på 1890-talet i Stockholm. Frågeställningarna centreras runt framställningarna av dansarna, fotografiernas funktion och hur dagspressen påverkade synligheten och uppfattningen om dansaren Lindzén. Materialet består till största delen av dansarnas rollporträtt från föreställningar där dansarna medverkade och utgörs av byxrollsporträtt, roller ursprungligen tänkta för män, samt Lindzéns kvinnokaraktärer. Porträtten analyseras med hjälp av begrepp som performativt jag, representation, original och imitation, hämtade från Tessa M. Kilgarriff och Judith Butler. Uppsatsen visar hur visit- och kabinettkorten kan förstås som artistiska tillflykter, där dansarna formulerar alternativa identiteter, kroppsspråk och uttryck, som undgår borgerlighetens binära värdesystem. Med hjälp av ett huvudsakligen maskulint kodat kroppsspråk kunde de kvinnliga dansarna positionera sig själva som virtuosa och professionella artister i samhället, som samtidigt gjorde dansarna till ett spektakulärt fenomen och en produkt för allmänheten att konsumera.

    Dans i skolan kan ha betydelse för individ, grupp och samhälle2023Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Dansdidaktik kan utgå ifrån att dans är ett sätt att skapa rörelsemedvetenhet och koreografier, men också en möjlighet att dela med sig av kunskap, fantasier, traditioner och livet i stort. Forskning visar hur dans kan skapa meningsfullhet, ökad rörelsemedvetenhet, självkänsla och gruppsammanhållning för elever.

    Media Conversion From Webtoon To Television: A Case Study Of: I Sneak A Look At His Room Every Day and Flower Boy Next Door2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Although webtoons have become one of the largest consumed media in South Korea, and many webtoons have been adapted to both film and television, there has been a lack of research on webtoon to television adaptations. This thesis will investigate the specific characteristics of the webtoon that make it suitable for television adaptation using the webtoon I Sneak A Look At His Room Everyday by Yu Hyŏn Suk and the television series Flower Boy Next Door directed by Chŏng Chŏng Hwa.By using narrative structure and character analysis the two works will be compared and contrasted to discover the similarities and differences that enable a smooth media conversion.The second part of the thesis looks into what a webtoon is and how it has evolved during the years. To explore the characteristics for media conversion the webtoon and the television series were analysed both separately and compared to find the commonalities and the differences.The results indicate that using similar storytelling methods such as story-arcs play a large role in the success of webtoon to television adaptation. Both media needs to keep their viewers on their toes to make them want to read/watch further.

    When Camp becomes a Method: a conceptualization of conversational performatives and curatorial agencies within ‘the camp-eye’2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of following thesis is to demonstrate the potentials of reassessing camp into a question of method. While others have argued for the definition of camp to lie in: an aesthetic; a question of taste; the extravagant theatrical; the male gay sensibility; or as an expression of parody, this thesis suggests that camp is to be found in the performative act of readings. With emphasis on ‘decoding language’, ‘the signifier/signified’ and ‘the camp eye’ I will argue for the relevance of ‘camp as method’ and situate former stated in relation to Bhabha’s concept of ‘conversational art’; a deconstructional examination of values of aesthetic experiences set into dialogue. Demonstrating for such conceptualization three theoretical approaches and themes will be outlined. First, a historical overview of camp followed by a reassessment of camp into a method. Second, an examination of possible extensions to the concept of rereading strategies within camp, including theories on queer phenomenology; queer space and time; topias and non-places; theories of curatorial methods and its agencies. And last, I will do an analysis of Moyra Davey’s video Hemlock Forest and show how Davey’s use and reference towards Chantal Akerman can be read as camp and constitutes ‘camp as method’ according to suggested reassessment.

    Tuning in on motivation: Differences between non-musicians, amateurs, and professional musicians2019In: Psychology of Music, ISSN 0305-7356, E-ISSN 1741-3087, Vol. 47, no 6, p. 864-873Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The drive to learn and engage in music varies among individuals. Global motivation to do something can be intrinsic, for example, the joy and satisfaction in an activity. But motivation behind our action can also be extrinsic, such as the desire for fame, status or increased financial resources. The type of motivation probably influences to what degree individuals engage in musical activities. In this study, we examined the associations between the level of musical engagement and self-rated global motivation, factoring in age and sex, in a sample of 5,435 individuals. Musical engagement ranged from no music activity to amateurs and professional musicians. We found that intrinsic motivation increases with level of music activity and that motivation differs depending on sex, with females scoring higher on intrinsic motivation than males. Such differences may be considered in adjusting the forms of support offered to young musicians in music education. The phenomenon of motivation is complex, and we have highlighted areas that require further investigation, but this study has elucidated some differences in motivation types found in men and women, and between non-musicians, amateurs and professional musicians.

    The Importance of Being Funded: A Case Study of the Public Funding, Production, and Style of Pica Pica (1987)2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Given the 2017 discontinuation of the Swedish Film Agreement and the surrounding debate on the rationales of film policy, this thesis will conduct a historical study of a particular instance of Swedish film policy history, thus seeking to contribute to the understanding of the consequences of film policy for the outcome of film. Looking at the relationship between Swedish public broadcasting (SVT) and the Swedish Film Institute (SFI) during the mid-1980’s, this thesis aims to investigate the historical background of the funding and production process that enabled the creation of Pica Pica, a feature documentary film on magpies made by director Mikael Kristersson. By applying Geir Vestheim’s theory of the four instrumental arguments for public support of the arts and through an idea analysis, the thesis will investigate what arguments could be said to be pivotal for the funding and production of Pica Pica. Analyzing policy documents concerning the SFI and SVT, as well as using interviews conducted with the people in decision-making positions at the time, the thesis investigates what rationales and circumstances might be said to have informed the funding and production of Pica Pica. Furthermore, Kristersson’s film will be analyzed in relation to concepts of ecocinema and in relation to its lineage in nature portrayal in Swedish film. Through its investigation of the role of the funding and production circumstances for the stylistic outcome of the film, the thesis seeks to contribute to the understanding of the importance and consequences of film policy and production organization for the outcome of film in current times withal.

    PRADA MARFA: Om platsspecificitet, politik och höjda ögonbryn i Texas öken2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen undersöker platsspecificitet. Undersökningen är baserad på konstnärsduon Elmgreen & Dragsets installation Prada Marfa i staden Marfa i Texas öken, USA. Uppsatsens syfte har varit att undersöka verkets placering, sett till platsens betydelse och kontexten. Politiska och kritiska aspekter har också undersökts. Undersökningsfrågor har rört sig i fältet om avsikter med att verket producerats, val av plats, vilken betydelse relationen mellan verket och platsen har samt om den existerande distansen gentemot betraktaren. Teoretiskt ramverk har varit platsspecificitet via Miwon Kwon och konceptuell konst via Sol LeWitt och Jacques Rancière. De metodologiska verktygen är även hämtade från dessa teorier. Undersökningen diskuterar Kwons tre paradigm (som hon identifierat inom platsspecifik praktik) i relation med Prada Marfa. Uppsatsen berör också konstnärskontext och mobilitet bland konstverk och konstnärer. Kwon hävdar att samtidens platsspecificitet inte har samma styrka som på 1960- och 1970-talet. I dag är den praktiken under institutionens makt och under kapitalistiska intressen. Undersökningen i denna uppsats vittnar om att så även har varit fallet för Prada Marfa

    Sökord: platsspecificitet, Prada Marfa, Elmgreen & Dragset, Miwon Kwon, identitet, konceptuell konst, land-art.

    Kvinnan som tecken: En semiotisk analys av hur den unga kvinnokroppen gestaltas i samtida svensk konstfotografi.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen behandlar ämnet gestaltning av den unga kvinnokroppen i samtida svensk konstfotografi utifrån ett genusperspektiv. Materialet som ligger till grund för studien består av fyra bildserier: Tillbaka till naturen av Annika von Hausswolff, Holding av Anna Clarén, Surveillance av Jenny Källman och Twisted Cherry av Julia Peirone. Syftet är att bidra till förståelse för hur vi läser bilder och hur bilder bidrar till att forma de normer som finns i samhället. Genom att studera hur fotografierna refererar till tidigare framställningar av den unga kvinnokroppen ämnas även att undersöka hur den samtida konstfotografin ingår i en historisk tradition och vilken betydelse för tolkningen av bilder det medför. Metoden för studien bygger på semiotisk analys av bildserierna utifrån Peirces teckendefinitioner: index, ikon och symbol, och Barthes begrepp denotation och konnotation. Teoretiskt stödjer sig analysen på feministisk teoribildning och Leena-Maija Rossis essä Att re-turnera blicken. Dispositionen är upplagd i fyra separata analyser av bildserierna med en avslutande diskussion.Resultatet visar hur kvinnokroppen används som verktyg i berättandet genom att gestaltas i miljöer, situationer och på sätt som refererar till andra avbildningar av kvinnor. Genom att parafrasera tidigare motiv för att skapa nya motiv förskjuter konstnärerna blicken och belyser problemen kring de ”kvinnobilder” som finns i samhället. Kvinnans brister gestaltas också i bildserierna och genom att lyfta fram det som inte ”ska” ses på en kvinna vänder de sig emot de sociala och kulturella strukturerna. Ett annat viktigt resultat är betydelsen av avsändaren och kontexten bilderna visas. Det ställs också höga krav på betraktarens kompetens vad det gäller konsthistoriska och idéhistoriska referenser samt kunskap om feministiskt bildspråk.

    The Iron-Professor: Rethinking the historical narrative of Tuija Lindström’s professorship at Fotohögskolan and the school’s relation to the Swedish photographic field in the 1990s2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In revolving around the construction of history, this study rethinks the historical narrative of Tuija Lindström’s professorship at Fotohögskolan in the 1990s. Through this, the aim is to widen the understanding of the role of both the school and the professor’s position within the Swedish photographic field in the postmodern era. The main material consists of archival documents from Fotohögskolan, such as syllabuses, schedules, and staff records. Other important sources include interviews with people connected to the school and articles from newspapers and photographic journals. In order to examine power structures, the theoretical framework is built upon Pierre Bourdieu’s concept of the cultural field. To further understand this, critical discourse analysis is also used both as a method and theory. The study shows that the development of Fotohögskolan grew out of many events and endeavours traceable to broader structural struggles within the Swedish field of photography in the 1990s. The changes are shown to be connected to postmodern tendencies which influenced the whole field in a certain direction, and how the school became an important institution to manifest this. Further, the study shows that the professorship played an important role as a central figure for Swedish photography.

    Becoming Cyborg Composer: The Ecology of Digital Music Composition Didaktik2022Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this licentiate thesis is to explore the sociomaterial relationality of music composition education with digital hardware/software and its outcomes. Two studies were conducted interleaved as original articles in the thesis. Article 1 explores learning in creational processes involving digital actants and two composers of contemporary art music. The posthumanist concept of the cyborg is enacted as a signifier for learning and becoming in relation with material actants. An interview with a composer and music application creator is analysed through a constructed posthumanist narrative entangled with the researcher’s narrative of a music creation process involving the app. Also, the app’s meaning-making capacities are entangled in the narrative. Results show that alignments between human and nonhuman actants constitute a part of learning in music composing practices. Artefacts move from being evident and present to becoming transparent and in a background relation during a learning process.

    In article 2 a composing assignment conducted in four year 9 classes in a Swedish compulsory school is explored. Employing the posthumanist concept compositionism as a research approach, educational activities are composed into assemblages of actants performing the outcomes of the activities. Results bring the human/nonhuman actants as hybrid originators of outcomes to the fore. Learning with digital actants also showed to be hardware/software specific when past experiences of music composing were limited, with the risk of reducing pupils to intermediaries of information between functions in the digital software.

    In the summarising parts of this compilation thesis, a background of the research field of didaktik and subject didaktik is delineated. Also, the distinction between didactics and didaktik is discussed and the reason for employing the Swedish/German spelling is explicated. Furthermore, a background of composing and music creation as subject matter in the Swedish school system is drawn. Theoretical and methodological approaches are further developed in the summarising parts. Posthumanism as theoretical onset has a profound impact on understandings of relationality within educational activities and on how materiality is affecting learning. Methodological approaches are actuated in relation to the research material to find new meanings of sociomaterial relationality in music education.

    As one outcome of reading the results from the studies through posthumanism, the tentative term postdidaktik is proposed and discussed. Following the ontological turn of posthumanism that re-entangles human with nature and matter, postdidaktik becomes an implication for understanding learning in sociomaterial relationality. This also affects an understanding of didaktik as lesson planning, enactment, and analysis. The practical employment of postdidaktik is thus further delineated and proposed for further research.

    Compositionism and digital music composition education2022In: Journal for Research in Arts and Sports Education, E-ISSN 2535-2857, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 96-120Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to explore the sociomaterial relational activities within digital music composition education via the posthumanist concepts compositionism and assemblage. The study is an attempt at a nonlinear and non-reductivist understanding of educational activities where matter, nature and culture shape performative practices. Engaging with Latour and Actor-Network Theory (ANT) and its onto-epistemological manifest as compositionism the explorations also find impetus from posthumanist thinking, Barad’s intra-action, Haraway’s becoming-with and post-qualitative inquiry. Four year 9 classes in a Swedish compulsory school took part in the composing activity and the research intervention. During a four-week participation period the music composition lessons were video-recorded. Sociomaterial transcriptions of the recorded lessons were transformed into assemblage compositions to explore the outcomes and becomings that emerged. What these sociomaterial compositions brings to the fore is the hybridity of digital music composition outcomes in learning activities.

    Cyborg learners: Becoming-with in the ecology of digital music composition2022In: Finnish Journal of Music Education, ISSN 1239-3908, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 10-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital technology for musical purposes creates new means for embodiment and expressions of music. The aim of this article is to explore a non-linear digital music composition application in relation to two composers active in the field of contemporary art music. Drawing on the posthumanist ontological turn the study offers a sociomaterial understanding of learning practices. The empirical material consists partly of an interview with Jesper Nordin, a composer and music/composition application creator who is active in the contemporary art music field. In addition, the author’s own a/r/tographical exploration together with the iPad application called Gestrument, for compositional purposes constitutes a part of the material. The generated material was analysed through a posthumanist narrative, constructed and presented as entangled stories of learning/becoming in relation with the digital actant Gestrument, with human and nonhuman actants in a wider sense. The results introduce a discussion on the implications a posthumanist sociomaterial understanding can have for music education practices. For example, the composition here becomes relata, it is diffracted to multiple becomings in relation to different interpreters, musicians, traditions, compositions and so forth. When employed for the purpose of composition as an activity within music education, digital hardware/software can offer multiple ways of intra-acting with music, other ways than via common musical instruments, and by that differentiate the process of conceptualizing subjective ideas in multiple directions, emphasizing diffraction and relationality. In this understanding of music creation as relational and fluid, the employment of specific digital actants seems to help corroborate modes of conceptualizing music, but also act as a partner of renewal as well as a sounding board for musical ideas.

    Den förlorade sonen: En analys av motivet och dess placering i herrstugan på Hälsinglands Museum2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är att studera herrstugan på Hälsinglands museum. Studieobjektet ska tillsammans med arkivmaterial från Nordiska Museets arkiv och relevant litteratur om herrstugor undersöka rummets funktion, något som även herrstugans väggmåleri ska förtydliga. Rummets huvudsakliga målning är Den förlorade sonen och studiet av dess innehåll sker genom receptionsestetisk teori. Vidare ska analysen utreda hushållets status.

    Undersökningen inleds med en studie av Hälsingegårdar vilket vidare leder till herrstugans interiör och funktion. Efter följer en presentation av herrstugan på Hälsinglands museum och det bibliska motivet ”den förlorade sonen”. Undersökningens största kapitel är analysen av motiv, vilket sker genom Kemps receptionsteori. Här ligger fokus på vad det är för motiv och placeringen i rummet. Den sista och avslutande delen i uppsatsen diskuterar undersökningens frågeställningar.

    Motivet har framställts med likheter till berättelsen om ”den förlorade sonen” men även med avvikelser som förenar motiv och betraktare. Herrstugans funktion som bland annat ett rum för firande fungerar väl med motivet som låter herrstugans besökare påverkas av symboliken. Herrstugan har visat sig vara vanligt förekommande på flera gårdar i Hälsingland vilket betyder att rummen med sin vackra interiör var något för alla. Det fanns ofta till för att behaga den egna gården men även dess besökare.

    Time-travel and Empathy: an Analysis of how Anachronous Narrative Structures Affect Character/Reader Empathy2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the relationship between the author’s narrative craft and the potential for the reader’s empathetic response. Specifically, it discusses how an anachronous narrative structure provides the author with different ways to promote empathy.

    The discussion of empathy is key in the discussion of narrative craft: great characters are those a reader can empathise with. But the discussion of empathy runs deeper than this, with many scholars turning to the wider effects literature can have on a reader’s moral compass (Nussbaum 1997) and even their real-world behaviour (Keen 2007).

    This study sets aside the question of how to produce empathy and turns instead to the author’s craft. I have assessed the author’s capability of promoting empathy by building a framework of tools for the author (dubbed The Empathy Toolbox) from several studies conducted by narratology theorists. I have then analysed this in relation to my own work and that of Audrey Niffenegger and Kurt Vonnegut with a particular focus on characterisation and how this is affected by anachrony.

    This study is of value to all writers of creative fiction, as anachronous timelines can be employed across a breadth of genres using plot devices like flashbacks, flash-forwards and dream sequences. Furthermore, it provides authors with tools to aid their craft and help their work resonate with any reader, not just those that might have a similar background to their protagonist.

    Mobilising participation in the work of art: Sound Machine by Esther Shalev-Gerz2011In: The Art of Engagement: Culture, collaboration, innovation / [ed] Elaine Lally, Ien Ang, Kay Anderson, Sydney: UWA Publishing , 2011, p. 181-196Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter by Swedish writers Bodil Axelsson and Karin Becker analyses Sound Machine, a collaborative contemporary art project that was developed integrally with university activities in research and teaching.  This interface opened up the rare possibility of participant research into the work processes of a well-known European collaborative artist, Esther Shalev-Gerz. The researchers trace different modes of engagement with participating non-artist subjects - such as the women who provide 'cultural memory' of earlier forms of work and engagement with technology - as well as other forms of participation essential for Sound Machine's conceptual, technical and institutional development.

    En drottnings identitet: En porträttanalys av drottning Desideria av Sverige och Norge2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen är en porträttanalys av drottning Desideria av Sverige och Norge där syftet med undersökningen är att påvisa hur Desideria framställde sin identitet i olika porträtt. Syftet är även att undersöka om hennes make Karl XIV Johan var influens till porträtten eller beställare av porträtten. Undersökningen analyserar tre parporträtt för att undersöka Karl XIV Johans roll i porträtten och hans motiv, men även tre enskilda porträtt av Desideria för att analysera Desiderias identitet och personlighet i porträtten. Metoden som användas är en ikonografisk och ikonologisk tolkning.  Resultatet av undersökningen visar att Desideria kännetecknade sin identitet som kvinna, fransk, modemedveten, familjekär och Sveriges drottning. Detta visas genom de olika dräkterna Desideria bär men även i hennes ansiktsuttryck. Hon ville värva hovet och befolkningen på grund av deras negativa syn på henne. Hon ville ge hovet och befolkningen en mer positiv uppfattning om henne och inte en oartig köpansflicka från Frankrike. Hon blev en mer dominant figur inom det svenska hovet. Karl XIV Johans motiv resulterade med att han vill framställa sig och Desideria som värdiga av den svenska tronen och vinna över befolkningen genom marknadsföring och porträttera sig annorlunda än tidigare monarker.

    A "Sensuous" Approach to the Cinema of Nuri Bilge Ceylan: Principles of Embodied Film Experience2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last decades, film theories with their focus on the mere audiovisual quality of cinema have been questioned by film scholars with a phenomenological interest. According to these critical approaches, the film experience cannot be understood through a mere involvement of the eye (and the ear). In this context, to disregard the significance of a multisensory attachment to the film results in the consideration of relationship between the film and the viewer to be a dominating one. This dissertation examines this multisensory attachment and aims to define the film experience as an embodied relationship between the film and the viewer by means of a formal analysis of the Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s early films. Throughout the dissertation, it is argued that Ceylan encourages his viewer in various forms to have a more sensual and immediate experience of his films rather than to compel them to adhere to symbols and abstractions through a kind of intellectual effort – an intellectual effort that would damage the “sensuous” attachment between the film and the viewer.

    Money on the wall: En analys av den samtida konstens värdeproduktion2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen tittar på värdeproduktionen inom konst med utgångsläge i tre samtida konstverk, som i samband med dess försäljning varit utmärkande. Dessa verk är Rabbit (1986) av Jeff Koons, Propped (1992) av Jenny Saville och Girl with Balloon (2006) av Banksy. Uppsatsen sammanför för första gången dessa tre verk och ställer sig den retoriska frågan om hur det kommer sig att Koons säljer dyrare än Saville men att Banksy är populärare än Saville? Det empiriska materialet är konstverken, litteratur och auktionskataloger. Syftet som föreligger uppsatsen är att undersöka relationen mellan konstens estetiska uttryck i förhållande till dess ekonomiska marknadsvärde samt den uppmärksamhet som genereras genom popularitet och kontroversiella handlingar/aspekter. Frågeställningarna rör både kontextuell biografisk bakgrund av verk och konstnär, samt ifrågasätter vilka gemensamma teman som är involverade inom konstens värdeproduktion i samband med försäljning. Detta görs med hjälp av social konsthistorisk teori. Uppsatsen är uppdelad i två huvudkapitel. Produktionskontext kapitlet presenterar varje konstnär och verk med hjälp av panofskys ikonologiska/ikonografiska analysmodell i tre nivåer. Det andra kapitlet Försäljningskontext tittar på försäljningen i samband med världens två största auktionshus, med grund i auktionskatalogerna och litteratur.

    Resultatet visar att tre olika teman är involverade inom konstens värdeproduktion. Dessa är ekonomiskt värde, konstnärligt värde och uppmärksamhetsvärde. Analysen visar att dessa tre teman är beroende och dirigerande av varandra inom konstens värdeproduktion och att de alltid är i samverkan med varandra. Det framgår också av undersökningen att uppmärksamhets värdet är flyktigt och högt beroende av produktionskontexten primärt.

    “As Long as We Live, They Too Will Live”: A qualitative study on sartorial objects as mediator between deceased and bereaved2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the symbolic presence of deceased people through their remaining sartorial objects including their clothes and accessories. Utilizing theories from anthropology, psychoanalysis, fashion studies, and sociology, the study explores different ways in which objects create the presence of a deceased person. Through six semi-structured interviews, the main functionality of sartorial objects as triggers of memories and as bearers of individuals’ traces is examined. The thesis explores how sartorial objects function as repositories of memories, how they influence individuals’ perceptions, how they change in value after death, and how they become mediators between the deceased and the bereaved.

    Atlantic crossings: Exhibiting Scandinavian-American relations in scale models and moving pictures during the mid-1910s2012In: Early Popular Visual Culture, ISSN 1746-0654, E-ISSN 1746-0662, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 345-366Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Among the many endeavours of visualization that took place in fairs and expositions at the time of early cinema, one medium warrants closer attention than it has hitherto received: the scale model. Well suited to pedagogical ideals of overview and visual compression, the model may shed light on the specifically three-dimensional branch of exhibitory items, particularly in instances when it was used in conjunction with moving pictures. Chiefly on the basis of contemporary press sources, this essay explores two occurrences of smaller-scale farm models that were used in exhibitions in a context of multiple other media, including cinema. These instances of model culture reflect two very different aspects of Scandinavian–American relations during the mid-teens: on the one hand, a Swedish government-funded organization used the 1915 Panama–Pacific Exposition for political purposes, attempting to convince Swedish Americans to go back to Sweden and build their own small farms; on the other, a Norwegian official exposition in 1914 instead celebrated the success of Norwegian-American settlers. The essay investigates how the specific uses of the assembled media in each case articulate these aims and refract the more abstract political ideals behind them. It argues that in the media discourse surrounding these cases, the scale model was overwhelmingly favoured, at this point outshining the cinema as a perceived beacon of scientific exactitude and intuitive meaning. Perhaps for this very reason, the miniature in particular seems to have been allowed to invite affective relations with the spectator.

    Locating Inter-Scandinavian Silent Film Culture: Connections, Contentions, Configurations2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis revisits film and film-culture history in Sweden, Denmark and Norway with a view to discourses and practices of the inter- and trans-Scandinavian in the silent era. Excluding the earliest films, but including the transition to synchronised sound, it covers the period of the 1900s to 1930 with emphasis on the 1910s and 1920s. The thesis identifies notions about the relations between the Scandinavian and the national by means of a number of case studies based on textual historical sources. As a consistent Scandinavian perspective on this period is new, the investigation substantially supplements and revises the individual national film histories of these countries. It adds missing context to national developments and makes visible border phenomena such as transnational collaborations and co-producing practices.

    The thesis finds that film production in Scandinavia in the silent era was orientated towards one of two poles, at times combined or in a state of negotiation: international economic ambitions or national cultural aspirations. The latter was frequently conceptualised as northern, Nordic and Scandinavian. ‘Scandinaviannesses’ performed when drawing on nature, folklore, literature and heritage, not least that of Norway, were employed for use in and out of Scandinavia by means of strategies of ‘double-entry book-keeping’. 

    During the period, the notion of location underwent changes from an illusory, theatrical device to an inherently meaningful entity carrying identities infused with the Scandinavian. Examining the effects of shared comprehension of language and a shared recent history of Scandinavist ideas, the thesis identifies instrumental notions of kindredness and senses of cultural proprietorship extending to the output of the neighbouring countries. These notions were mobilised selectively within film culture and motivated practical transnational collaboration from the side of the authorities as well as in trade organisations.

    Souvenirs from the Selma Lagerlöf silent film adaptations: How ‘beautiful’ book editions and prestige cinema collaborated in Swedish visual culture around 19202012In: Scandinavica - International Journal of Scandinavian Studies, ISSN 0036-5653, Vol. 51, no 2, p. 184-207Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From 1917 to 1930, several of Selma Lagerlöf’s literary works that were adapted into films in Sweden were reissued in editions illustrated with film stills. The article analyses these book editions in relation to the cinema souvenir programme, placing them within the double context of Swedish publishing and cinema culture. and argueing that increased expenses associated with World War I generated this finely tuned interaction between book and film production o. Through the lens of media materiality, this particular piece of cross-media print culture questions the boundaries between visual and printed media, unveiling the connections between the ‘golden’ era of ‘quality’ film production in Sweden around the 1920s and the stable impact of Selma Lagerlöf in Sweden through continuous publication and re-publication.

    The press cutting, film studies and the digital age2017In: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, E-ISSN 2042-7905, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 149-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Unlike the scrapbook, the humble press cutting has never quite broken the surface in the theoretical and methodological discourses of historiography, whether for film or other kinds of histories. In today's radically changed archive-scape where old volumes of printed media are digitized by the shelf-load, the blessings and curses of the curated collection may rapidly fade from short-term memory. At the same time, this novel sense of distance towards them can prove useful for discussing the impact of the collections' provenance and bias. In tracing the press-cuttings collection in Swedish press discourse during the twentieth century, the article argues that its meaning has shifted over time, most clearly signalling status, progress and knowledge optimism in the 1940s to 1960s. Lastly, the article maps the discourse and history of cuttings at the Swedish Film Institute and suggests that the press-cutting archive is now more interesting in its entirety as collection than by virtue of its individual scraps and pieces.

    BILENS INVERKAN PÅ STADSBILDEN OCH FÖRORTSSAMHÄLLET: STHLM vs SKHLM2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Med stöd av filosofen Michel Foucaults begrepp styrningsmentalitet, definieras i denna uppsats den makt som de som styr staden har över stadens utformning. Uppsatsen belyser hur bilen som färdmedel påverkat stadsplaneringen och förändrat stadsbilden. Genom analys av stadsplaner, tidningsartiklar och relevant litteratur tydliggörs hur den politiskt styrda lagstiftande makten reglerat beslut gällande planförslag och markuppköp, som medfört att bilen beretts plats i Stockholms innerstad och därtill möjliggjort skapandet av Skärholmens centrum. Dessutom ger de berörda tidningsartiklarna inblick i hur den allmänna debatten förts och hur tidsandan kontinuerligt förändrats. 

    I samband med bilens tillkomst, under tidigt 1900-tal, var de styrande väldigt entusias­tiska till bilen som färdmedel, men trots det dröjde det innan bilismen kom att prägla stadens utformning. Fram till mitten av 1930-talet var det främst den spårburna trafiken, d.v.s. tåg och spårvagnar som det planerades för.   År 1946 kom ett första förslag på en ny cityplan, som efter revidering antogs år 1952, samma år presenterades en generalplan för stadens ytterområden. Dessa planer resulterade sedermera i att Sergels torg och Skärholmens centrum uppfördes.  

    För att skapa plats för Sergels torg som med sina modernistiska byggnader var resultatet av tankar om trafikseparering och storskalighet, påbörjades en rivningsvåg i Stockholms innerstad. Rivningarna ledde i sin tur till protester från allmänheten. Samtidigt debatterades den nya arkitekturen i pressen och uppfattningarna var varierande men påtagligt många av artiklarna hade en negativ ton. 

    De ursprungligen positiva förhoppningarna gällande Skärholmens Centrum, grusades redan dagen efter dess invigning den 9 september 1968, då en serie av negativa skriverier i dagspressen inleddes.  

    Under rubriken STHLM vs SKHLM görs en jämförande analys mellan utformningen av Sergels torg i förhållande till Skärholmens centrums utformning, där de trafikseparerings-lösningar som genomfördes i respektive område behandlas.  

    Idag drygt femtio år efter byggnationen av Sergels torg och Skärholmens centrum, har politiska beslut fattats för att, från och med nästa år, 2020, begränsa användandet av bilar med förbränningsmotorer i Stockholms innerstad. Detta medför att man nu kan se föränd­ringar i området runt Sergels torg, men även på andra platser i staden, där vägbanornas ytor minskats och fått ge vika för ökat utrymme för gångtrafikanter och andra trafikslag såsom små eldrivna skotrar och spårvagnens återkomst.

    Spelets regler: En studie av ensembleundervisning i klass2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to explore criteria characterizing music teacher’s strategies when trying to adapt their teaching to individual students. The interaction of three music teachers with their students was explored in case studies in different parts of Sweden (a pre-study, and the main study consisting of two parallel studies). The research interest especially concerns teaching class ensemble addressing teenagers in the tuition provided under the curriculum of Swedish secondary and upper secondary school. 

    This study adopts the perspective of cultural psychology according to which learning is understood as being relational, taking place in a cultural context, depending on available cultural resources and affected by it. Cultural tools are considered mediators of meaning and crucial for learning. Of special interest to the present study are the ways in which teachers distribute knowledge to their students.

    Many-sided data were collected in all case studies: series of lessons were observed and video-documented; preliminary results were followed up in semi-structured interviews with the teachers, respectively.

    The results show similarities in the use of general strategies; e.g. peer-teaching and -learning in the classroom and flexibility in using and developing cultural tools. Results also show three diverging practices; rehearsal-room practice, supervisor-practice and ensemble-leading-practice.

    The results are discussed from a societal perspective, in light of Swedish School history. Issues concerning the government of the School and equivalence are addressed.  An unexpected result is that the concept “individually adapted ensemble teaching” may be understood very differently among music teachers actively involved in teachers’ education. The need for development of professional concepts is further underlined by the findings that teachers develop new cultural tools within different practices. This is discussed related to the framing of the central curricula.

    Bildförbud eller ordförbud? Om ikonoklasmen hos Birgitta Trotzig2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Med utgångspunkt i Birgitta Trotzigs metapoetiska reflektion och litterära praxis diskuterar jag den interartiella transformativitetens gränser. Trotzig är extremt öppen för interartiell kommunikation och har själv beskrivit sitt författarskap som en rörelse från bild till ord. Hennes texter rymmer mängder av explicita och implicita intermediala referenser: till bildkonst, film, teater, skulptur, fotografi, arkitektur etc. Samtidigt har Trotzig i olika sammanhang problematiserat både den interartiella transformativiteten och konstarternas inbördes kompatibilitet. I en central metapoetisk deklaration, ”’Varför skriver jag?’” (1986), hänvisar hon till den berömda medeltida ikonoklastiska striden, som behandlar den intermediala transpositionens väsen och legitimitet som ett dogmatiskt, kristologiskt problem. I föredraget granskar jag i vilken mån Trotzigs resonemang kring intermediala restriktioner kan föras tillbaka på bildstormarnas teologiska argument och i vilken utsträckning hennes litterära praktik styrs av ikonoklastiska normer. Föredraget utmynnar i frågan om inte Trotzigs ikonoklasm i själva verket är en särform av hennes ännu djupare rotade logoklasm – som kanske ytterst bottnar i en generell medioklasm.

    CPPS and Voice-Source Parameters: Objective Analysis of the Singing Voice2022In: Journal of Voice, ISSN 0892-1997, E-ISSN 1873-4588Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. In recent years cepstral analysis and specific cepstrum-based measures such as smoothed cepstral peak prominence (CPPS) has become increasingly researched and utilized in attempts to determine the extent of overall dysphonia in voice signals. Yet, few studies have extensively examined how specific voice-source parameters affect CPPS values.

    Objective. Using a range of synthesized tones, this exploratory study sought to systematically analyze the effect of fundamental frequency (fo), vibrato extent, source-spectrum tilt, and the amplitude of the voice-source fundamental on CPPS values.

    Materials and Methods. A series of scales were synthesised using the freeware Madde. Fundamental frequency, vibrato extent, source-spectrum tilt, and the amplitude of the voice-source fundamental were systematically and independently varied. The tones were analysed in PRAAT, and statistical analyses were conducted in SPSS.

    Results. CPPS was significantly affected by both fo and source-spectrum tilt, independently. A nonlinear association was seen between vibrato extent and CPPS, where CPPS values increased from 0 to 0.6 semitones (ST), then rapidly decreased approaching 1.0 ST. No relationship was seen between the amplitude of the voice-source fundamental and CPPS.

    Conclusion. The large effect of fo should be taken into account when analyzing the voice, particularly in singing-voice research, when comparing pre and posttreatment data, and when comparing inter-subject CPPS data.

    A Comparative Study of the Research Proceedings at GRM and EMS based on Pierre Schaeffer’s and Knut Wiggen’s Musical Concepts2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper looks at the research proceedings at EMS (Electronmusikstudion) in Stockholm during the end of the 1960s, under the leadership of Knut Wiggen, and studies his interactions with Pierre Schaeffer in order to establish a new compositional technique for electroacoustic music. The first part deals with the examination of their research method of proposing a sort of compositional and technical program that led the main scientific and creative directions of GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) and EMS. The second part attempts to demonstrate how Wiggen intended to make operational Schaeffer’s sound description system by means of his hybrid studio apparatus. Lastly, the study focuses on how Wiggen’s project differed from the Schaefferian model as well as from GRM after the installation of a computer-controlled studio in 1970 with the development of Musicbox and EMS-1 programs. Hence, this investigation allows us to observe the evolution of technology at EMS in relation to GRM as well as to contrast those developments with Schaeffer’s and Wiggen’s purposes.The historical background of the technical equipment is aimed mainly at musicians and musicologists. It points out the operational features of the apparatus that are useful for an in-depth understanding of composition technique based on Schaeffer’s and Wiggen’s approaches.
