    Modeling the genealogy of a cultural trait2015In: Theoretical Population Biology, ISSN 0040-5809, E-ISSN 1096-0325, Vol. 101, p. 1-8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The mathematical study of genealogies has yielded important insights in population biology, such as the ability to estimate the time to the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of a sample of genetic sequences or of a group of individuals. Here we introduce a model of cultural genealogies that is a step toward answering similar questions for cultural traits. In our model individuals can inherit from a variable, potentially large number of ancestors, rather than from a fixed, small number of ancestors (one or two) as is typical of genetic evolution. We first show that, given a sample of individuals, a cultural common ancestor does not necessarily exist. We then introduce a related concept: the most recent unique ancestor (MRUA), i.e., the most recent single individual who is the earliest cultural ancestor of the sample. We show that, under neutral evolution, the time to the MRUA can be staggeringly larger than the time to MRCA in a single ancestor model, except when the average number of learning opportunities per individuals is small. Our results point out that the properties of cultural genealogies may be very different from those of genetic genealogies, with potential implications for reconstructing the histories of cultural traits.

    Åland som språksamhälle: Språk och språkliga attityder på Åland ur ett ungdomsperspektiv2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis deals with Åland, i.e. the Åland Islands, as a language environment. Its main focus is on the language attitudes of adolescents. The status, role and use of Swedish, Finnish and English are topical. Its main part consists of an empirical study, which is based on an extensive questionnaire answered by students in grade 9 of primary school and in the second grade of the (theoretical) secondary school in Åland.

    The thesis includes a description of Åland as a language environment. The legal framework making Åland an autonomous region in Finland with Swedish as the only official language is presented. Language policies in Åland are compared with those of Sweden and Finland (outside of Åland). Special treatment is given to the school as a linguistic environment and recent language related debate in Åland.

    The central questions in the questionnaire relate to language choice, media habits, subjective estimations of the respondents’ own language competence and language attitudes in a broad sense.

    Six hypotheses based on a model of secure and insecure majorities and minorities as well as the Interactive Acculturation Model are postulated and treated.

    The results of the empirical study reveal very strong feelings of affinity towards Åland. Attitudes towards English and English-speakers are in general positive. The results reveal somewhat ambivalent attitudes towards Finnish and Finland. Many variables show a tendency among the respondents to favour Sweden ahead of Finland and negative attitudes towards Finnish but there are also other conflicting results. The respondents who have parents who speak Finnish to them display more positive attitudes towards Finnish and Finland. These differences between the groups are statistically significant. However, the group with a Finnish language background also displays its strongest feelings of affinity towards Åland.

    Gränsväktare och normbrytare: En studie av tre transpersoners berättelser om kropp och vardagsliv i ett könsdikotomt samhälle.2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie har varit att synliggöra transpersoner vardagsliv i ett samhälle som är uppdelat på kvinnliga och manliga kroppar. Materialet består av tre intervjuer med personer som gjort kroppsliga korrigeringar som, ur ett heteronormativt perspektiv, gör att de anses avvika från den manliga och kvinnliga normkroppen. Utifrån teorier om kön, genus och multipla subjektiviteter har jag undersökt hur (om) informanterna gör sina kroppar för att gestalta den självupplevda identiteten som varken man eller kvinna samt den tillskrivna identiteten som man eller kvinna. Analysen har visat att informanterna överskrider kroppsnormers gränser i miljöer som präglas av den dominerande (heteronormativa) könsdiskursen samtidigt som de använder sig av den dominerande könsdiskursen som strategi för att passera. Informanternas berättelser vittnar om hur deras korrigerade kroppar speglar deras självupplevda identiteter, vilket i relation till det heteronormativa samhället, påverkar deras livsutrymme både kroppsligt och identitetsmässigt. Berättelserna vittnar om hur informanterna begränsas och osynliggörs i deras vardagsliv vilket är följden av den heteronormativa könsdiskurs som dominerar i samhället. Materialet har utöver detta visat hur lagen om diskriminering för transpersoner inte överensstämmer med mina informanters upplevda diskriminering.

    Vad kan vi lära av det förflutna? Bytet av arkivredovisningsmodell ur ett historiskt perspektiv2010In: Arkiv samhälle och forskning, ISSN 0349-0505, no 1, p. 29-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This artichle discusses the art of interpreting and using arhcive accounting models startin in the work of the Swedish Military Archives from the time around the turn of the 19th century. The intention is to see if anything in this act could be used to facilitate the introduction of the activity based archive accounting model. Hence the study focuses on the lessons we can learn from the early 20th century introduction of the principle of provenance and "allmänna arkivschemat". I also compare the conditions and argue that the differences are småller in the present change than it was 100 years ago, since the principle of provenance still stands. At the same time I argue that there are reasons to facilitate the possibilities to re-search records over time and between different archive accounting models.

    Ett skepp kommer lastat med fyra förmågor och ett central innehåll i ämnet idrott och hälsa för årskurserna F-6: En intervjustudie om lärares uppfattning av kursplanen för idrott och hälsa i Lgr 112014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur lärare i ämnet idrott och hälsa realiserar och transformerar de förmågor eleverna genom undervisningen syftar att utveckla samt vad införandet av ett centralt innehåll inneburit för dem i yrket. Till detta finns tre frågeställningar; hur tolkar lärare i idrott och hälsa ämnet idrott och hälsas förmågor i Lgr 11, hur undervisar lärare i idrott och hälsa utifrån ämnet idrott och hälsas förmågor i Lgr 11 och hur uppfattar lärare i idrott och hälsa ämnet idrott och hälsas centrala innehåll i Lgr 11. Som metod har intervjuer använts.

    Resultaten visar att lärare i ämnet idrott och hälsa tolkar och undervisar utifrån ämnets förmågor på olika sätt. Gällande det centrala innehållet så har det bland flertalet lärare inneburit struktur och tydlighet och i enstaka fall inget nytt. Slutsatsen av undersökningen är således att de förmågor som formuleras i ämnet idrott och hälsa transformeras och realiseras på olika sätt och att det centrala innehållet tillfört tydlighet och struktur i vissa fall och i andra fall inte.

    ”Han sa att det är som Arlamjölk och någon annan sorts mjölk. Båda är mjölk men folk föredrar Arla.”: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med nyanlända kvinnliga akademiker om arbetsintegration i Sverige.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats syftar till att, genom kvalitativa intervjuer, lyfta fram och undersöka fyra nyanlända kvinnliga akademikers erfarenheter av arbetsintegration i Sverige. Vilka hinder och möjligheter det innebär samt hur dessa förstås i relation till föreställningar om ’svenskhet’? Studien vilar på ett postkolonialt feministiskt teoretiskt ramverk med fokus på materiellt skillnadsskapande och ’svensk’ identitet samt en forskningsbakgrund som belyser utlandsfödda kvinnor som en marginaliserad grupp på svensk arbetsmarknad. Materialet visar på många dimensioner av hinder och möjligheter där informanterna upplever svårigheter att ta sig in på svensk arbetsmarknad. Identifierade hinder är: att inte kunna svenska, att inte ha ett ’svenskt’ socialt nätverk, att inte känna till relevant information gällande arbetsmarknadens funktioner och att inte ha en utbildning och erfarenhet som värdesätts. Materialet visar tendenser till att svensk arbetsmarknad är uppbyggd och anpassad efter en önskvärd och normativ ’svenskhet’ som omöjligen alla kan uppnå. De som inte passar in i mallen, ’de andra’, förväntas anpassa sig och inta andra ’svenska’ identiteter och positioner i arbetsmarknadens periferi. Detta som en del av ett reproducerande strukturellt skillnadsskapande.

    "Guatemala woke up": A study about the social protests in Guatemala City 20152016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In a country that has been characterized by its high level of violence and historically strong repression of social movements and mobilizations, people demonstrated peacefully during twenty weeks in Guatemala City 2015. The mobilizations started after the revelation of a corruption network described as The Line, which involved both the Guatemalan Government and the Guatemalan Superintendence of Tax Administration. Each Saturday from April – August, Guatemalans gathered at the main square in the Capital City, to protest against corruption and to demand the resignation of President Otto Pérez Molina and Vice President Roxana Baldetti. After intensive demonstrations calling for the Vice-Presidents resignation, Baldetti resigned on May 8. The President resigned on September 2, four days before the general elections and both Baldetti and Pérez Molina were sentenced to prison because of their involvement in the corruption network. This essay aims to give answer to why people mobilized during several weeks and to create a greater understanding for why the mobilizations occurred. The Political Process Model has been used to analyze the character of the protests. This qualitative study is based on 16 semi-structured interviews conducted in Guatemala during the period of October – December 2015. A targeted selection and a snowball sampling method were used to identify persons to interview. The research showed that people identified the situation in Guatemala as a political crisis, which encouraged a broad participation in the protests. The traditional dynamic of challengers and members changed during the weeks of demonstrations. Since traditional polity members turned into challengers, the mobilizations had a high political leverage which made state led repression less likely. Therefore the demonstrations were interpreted as safe and consequently the participation increased. Traditional movements put their specific demands aside in order to be part of the collective demands against corruption. In other words, persons participated rather as individuals than as representatives from their movements.

    Det iögonfallande landskapets natur och kultur: formeringen av natur- och kulturmiljövårdens landskapssyn under 1900-talet2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For centuries the Swedish landscape has been assessed on account of its natural and cultural heritage. The 20th century however, marks an especially dynamic period of preservation and conservation acts, due to the extensive transformation of natural habitats, cultural scenery, space and society in the wake of modernity. Over the course of this period the motifs and values embodied in the landscape's natural and cultural heritage undergo significant changes, as the landscape perception of aniquarians and environmental preservationists shifts. This thesis is concerned with how the Swedish landscape has been viewed and taken in use by these subjects to materialize ideas of nature, culture and heritage over the course of the 20th century. Its inquiry is geographical and historical. By studying the transformation of the spatial setting, and the agenda of agencies of natural and cultural heritage, these perspectives merge to create a synthesis, bringing new insights to the relations between natural and cultural heritage, antiquarians, conservationists and the landscape and last – but not least – the historically constructed spatial realms of nature and culture in the Swedish landscape.

    Kroppslig beredskap och känslomässigt avstånd: Tre kvinnors erfarenheter av förkroppsligat emotionellt arbete2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är att anlägga ett feministiskt fenomenologiskt perspektiv på kvinnliga omsorgsarbetares levda erfarenhet av att arbeta med kroppen på andra kroppar, och därmed undersöka informanternas erfarenhet av gränsdragning och arbetets påverkan på den egna kroppen. Omsorgsarbetet innefattar komplexa kroppsliga och känslomässiga arbetsuppgifter, och arbetets höga risk för skada utgör den främsta anledningen till att arbetare funderar på att lämna yrket (Stranz, 2013, s. 176). Genom semistrukturerade djupintervjuer med tre kvinnor med erfarenhet av omsorgsarbete, samt en analys av dessa utifrån feministisk fenomenologi och den sociologiska termen body work, visar undersökningen att informanterna utför förkroppsligat emotionellt arbete. Arbetet ställer krav på att kunna förkroppsliga flera motsägelsefulla roller, och detta tycks försvåras när informanterna ser sig sedda som någonting annat än som professionell omsorgsarbetare. För informanterna är en central strategi för att etablera distans till arbetet att förkroppsliga professionalitet. Uppsatsens slutsats är att omsorgsarbetet genererar materialiserade effekter på informanternas levda kroppar; inte bara i form av observerbara skador utan också genom att påverka själva relationen mellan kroppen och jaget. Omsorgsarbetet tycks påverka hur vi rör oss, hur vi förstår våra kroppar, hur vi använder dem och hur vi sätter gränser runt och med dem.

    Byzantine Gardens and Beyond2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Byzantine Gardens and Beyond has its origin in a symposium that was organized by the Nordic Byzantine Network in April 2011 at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS), situated in the Botanical Garden of Uppsala. The anthology aims to bring together different perspectives on Byzantine garden culture. Byzantium offers a vantage point for reflecting on the wider meaning and significance of the garden. This topic is discussed by a group of scholars belonging to various disciplines and methodological approaches, ranging from Byzantine Studies, Archaeology, Landscape Architecture and Literary Studies, to Slavic, Arabic and Swedish languages. The collection of articles takes the reader through time and space, from the Garden of Eden to Rome and Constantinople, and further to Syria, Russia, and Scandinavia. One discovers that the cultivation of gardens has provided unceasing inspiration to artist, writers and thinkers throughout the ages.

    Body Claims2009Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    What is a body? What expectations, desires, thoughts and emotions do bodies evoke?What kind of subjectivities do bodies reflect and give rise to and how do they receive their meanings in relation to one another? In what ways does the materiality of bodies stick to our thinking? In both feminist theorizing and our loved cultuires, the body is a contested zone that invites our attention and elicits inquiry. The articles in this volume all deal with claims made about the body - ranging from how bodies are positioned and marked in everyday cultural practice, to theoretical contributions to our conceptual understanding of what bodies are and do.

    Schwarz Rot Gold is the New Black: The production of patriotism in German fashion  - The case of Eva Gronbach2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a theoretically guided empirical discussion of fashion and its role within the production of national identity in Germany. In recent years, a new patriotism in contemporary German fashion could be observed, starting with the fashion designer Eva Gronbach in 2001. I will approach the term patriotism with the aid of one of Michel Foucault's key terms, the notion of the episteme. In my case study, singular fashion images from three consecutive collections by Gronbach are examined with regard to their role in the discourse of German patriotism. But I am not only interested in the "how" of this discourse. Building up upon Antonio Gramsci's notion of "cultural hegemony", I also explain the recent rise of this fashion patriotism. Thus, my discourse analysis of Gronbach's fashion becomes embedded in social struggles and transformations in Germany. Argueing that fashion is a discursive practice that can show up as well as promote changes in discursive formations, I assume a dialectical structure-agency conception: On the one hand the case of Gronbach hints at the deeper structural problematic of patriotism and social cohesion which allowed Gronbach to become popular. On the other hand, this structure is also produced via discursive practices such as Gronbach´s. The what I term "inclusionary patriotism" comprises cultural normalisation. Thus, the case of Gronbach demonstrates a "constrained heterogeneity" with regard to the discourse of patriotism in Germany, in which diversity is only acceptable within certain discursively constructed limits.

    Perception of lexical tone across languages: Evidence for a linguisticmode of processing1996In: Proceedings of the 4th InternationalConference on Spoken Language Processing / [ed] T. Bunnell & W. Isardi, 1996, p. 2514-2517Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pairs of Thai tones were presented for perceptual discrimination inthree linguistic contexts (normal speech, low-pass filtered speech,and as musical (violin) sounds) to tonal language speakers, Thaiand Cantonese, and non-tonal (English) language speakers.English speakers discriminated the tonal contrasts significantlybetter in the musical context than in filtered speech, and in filteredspeech better than in full speech. On the other hand, both Thaiand Cantonese speakers perceived the tonal contrasts equally wellin all three contexts. Thus developmental absence of exposure tolexical tone results in a linguistic mode of processing whichinvolves the attenuation of a basic psychoacoustic ability, pitchdiscrimination.

    Ranging from the late 1880s to the late 1970s children with dis/abilities were orderlyinstitutionalized in Sweden due to lack of accessibility and aids in the surrounding society. The aim of this thesis is to discuss how ableist discourse of dis/ability and gender interacted with materiality, such as buildings, clothes and objects, in the institutions and how it affected the everyday lives of women who grew up there, a concept previously unexplored in a Swedish context. Using a qualitative method interviews were carried out with women who grew up in various institutions in Sweden from the 1930s to 1970s. The interviews were analysed using a crip theoretical understanding of dis/ability and ableism paired with Barad’s post humanist understanding of matter as both product of and producer of discourse. The analysis show that matter was created, used and understood in a constant intra-action with ableist discourse, confining, controlling and subduing the women. Matter and the use of it functioned as a tool for upholding ableism, creating a colonial structure of medical access to the children’s bodies. Hence, the use of matter can be understood as acts of ableist rhetoric created to signalize and uphold ableist standards. Such ableist rhetoric can be said to carry on into the contemporary Swedish understanding of dis/ability, making evident the on-going objectification and medicalization of people with dis/ability today and its intersection with discourses of gender and sexuality.

    "'Vad är det som han ser i min popvärld?', liksom": Om representation av kvinnliga musikartister i dagstidningar2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I tidningen Aftonbladet publicerades i februari, 2014, artikeln ”Glöm inte bort oss när historien skrivs”, där en historieskrivning som osynliggjort kvinnliga musiker uppmärksammas och diskuteras. Med bakgrund av ett ökat engagemang för synliggörandet av kvinnliga musiker är syftet med studien att ur ett genusperspektiv undersöka den kvalitativa representationen av kvinnliga musikartister i svenska dagstidningar. Utifrån sju artiklar om kvinnliga artister som deltagit i tv-programmet Så mycket bättre undersöks tre teman som noterats är genomgående i materialet. Detta sker med utgångspunkt i Stuart Halls teorier om representation samt Nina Lykkes och Paulina de los Reyes teorier om intersektionalitet. Det hermeneutiska kulturbegreppet är centralt, då materialet betraktas som kulturella texter. Avslutningsvis resonerar jag kring mitt resultat vad gäller representationen av kvinnliga musikartister i materialet.

    Aesthetic learning processes – feelings and sensations of skate- and snowboarding2008In: Designs for learning: Defining the field, 2008, p. 1-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Skateboarding and snowboarding are practices loaded with symbolic expressions. They are also activities profoundly understood as physical. This paper will investigate the narrated impressions of these activities – in other words the expressions of impressions. Skateboarding and snowboarding are discussed as aesthetic learning processes, which to a large extent are both bodily and informal. The paper builds on ethnographic fieldwork and cultural analysis. Kirsten Drotner’s theory of aesthetic practices is used as a starting point. Aesthetic practices/production works on three levels: the individual, the social and the cultural. The individual level is characterised in terms of emotional intensity and corporality. The sensation is described as so encompassing that it becomes ones life, ones identity. The body is acutely present in these descriptions. It is the body that experiences, and it is there that the sensation of riding comes alive.

    Good ethnography smells bad: On aesthetic experience in qualitative research2008In: Sveriges antropologförbunds årliga konferens (SANT): Visuell kultur, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aesthetic learning processes are being notified in current Swedish pedagogical research. The philosophical term aesthetics is used in multiple modes, some of them borrowing an agenda from the studies of fine art, some more with inspiration from cultural studies and popular culture. In this emerging field both ethnography and every-day-aesthetics are in focus. Despite new ways of doing ethnography the results still tend to look (!) like traditional ethnography. Field-notes saturated with sensuous and stinking data; e.g. moist socks, sweaty t-shirts and car fumes, still tend to depend upon written texts and photography as scientific proof. Moreover ethnography is still judged against a positivistic framework drawing from natural science. Is a change required? And in that case, can the future of visual anthropology challenge this hegemonic scientific paradigm?

    Style in physical activity2008In: Bonds and Communities. Young people and their social ties.: The 10th Nordic Youth Research Information Symposium, 2008, p. 58-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aesthetic expressions in youth culture have been studied extensively. For the British CCCS and its followers the concept of style is regularly used to explain dress codes, hair fashion and other physical appearances. Sub culture is an often-used term, which enclose these types of expressions, in addition frequently connected to certain kinds music. Lately a growing number of studies on sub culture and sport have been presented. This implies an interest in a slightly different aspect of style – the one focusing more on style in physical activity. The leaderless boarding culture revolves primarily around style and physical bodily activity, in contrast to punk for example, which is held together by style and music. Thus it can be argued that identity through board sports is more clearly incorporated through physical performance. This presentation attempts to fill some of the gap in research around style in physical activity. It focuses bodily aesthetic expressions in skateboarding and the concept of style in relation to the moving body. Style in both senses mentioned above, communicates and creates both bonds and communities. Building on empirical studies on skateboarding in Sweden between 1978-2002, it is argued that also style in physical activity is significant for the construction of cultural and social values. Moreover style in this sense has a highly performative aspect.

    Barbarella's wardrobe: Exploring Jacques Fonteray’s intergalactic runway2016In: Film Fashion and Consumption, ISSN 2044-2823, E-ISSN 2044-2831, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 185-211Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Jane Fonda’s intergalactic adventure, Barbarella (Dino De Laurentiis Cinematografica, 1968), looms large in popular culture despite its mild reception in 1968. Disguised under its sartorial splendor, the film’s narrative clearly negotiates social anxieties of the late ‘60s. Similarly, the production design of the film incorporates contemporary elements from art, architecture and fashion. Paco Rabanne is frequently credited as the creator of Fonda’s onscreen parade of highly stylized costumes. Yet, the Spanish designer only created one of her eight outfits. The paper addresses this misconception by exploring how the film’s mise-en-scène captured the contemporary design trends beyond Rabanne’s participation, perpetuating Barbarella as a symbol of its own times.

    Den gamle och filmen: Om den nya generationen äldre och dess plats i det cinematiska rummet. En representationsstudie2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Within the field of cinema studies, the question of visual representation is a fundamental pillar. An immense volume of theoretical work has been written on the subject, with various academic approaches such as feministic, postcolonial and gay/lesbian. Yet there is a large social group that seems to have been overlooked within the representational discourse: the elderly. This group of people appears to be a blind spot on the multicultural retina, too often neglected within the area of cultural studies. But as the baby boomer generation, who has always redefined the different stages of life (youth, adulthood, middle age), is entering old age, things are slowly changing. Utilizing a post-structural framework, this essay investigates the visual representation of elderly within the cinematic landscape of the western world. Since the subject is somewhat uncharted territory, a broad interdisciplinary approach is necessary where modern social gerontology meets the field of cinema studies. In a cultural context, social grouping based on age implies a distinct position versus the normative, compare to other types of minorities. Changes of sex, skin colour or sexual preference are uncommon, whereas changing age is the fate of every human being. The elderly as the “the Other” is thus every man’s future destiny. This rather unique position carries an immanent paradox since the only way to avoid the periphery in question is death. As a philosophical counterpoint to this rather dystopian outlook, Gilles Deleuze’s theory of becoming is brought into the discussion. The theoretical part of the essay ends with the ontology of age, a historical review of the field of gerontology and the concept of ageism. After a descriptive section, where contemporary examples of film and other media with old age as a main theme are identified, the analytical part of the essay ensues. With the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu as a theoretical frame of reference, a close reading of the films Avalon (Axel Petersén, 2011), About Schmidt (Alexander Payne, 2002) and RED (Robert Schwentke, 2010) are performed, emphasising aging identity and imposed age-normative behaviour. The semiotics of the aged body is discussed through Jacques Lacans mirror stage and Julia Kristevas abject theory, exemplified by the works of Donigan Cumming. The final part of the essay concerns the great eternal questions within film philosophy: life, death, time and memory, which for the elderly are not merely philosophical concerns but rather notable existential realities. Using Deleuze as a philosophical toolbox, these grand topics are illuminated with examples from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (David Fincher, 2008), Amour (Michael Haneke, 2012) and Ingmar Bergmans classical works, such as Smultronstället (1957), Saraband (2003) and Gycklarnas afton (1953).

    Abstract [en]

    Based on semi-structured interviews, which have been interpreted through thematic analysis, this study sets out to explore four women’s experiences of sexual assault and its impact on their sexuality. It also aims at inquiring into what their stories can tell us about bodies and sexuality in general. This study draws on an understanding of sexuality and bodies as both discursive and material, and extends this insight to also include materiality’s potential to act against discourse. The analysis shows that the women experience sexual assault as in various ways affecting their sexuality and wellbeing negatively. While showing that their sexuality and bodily behaviour during sex is shaped and controlled by power and that this can be reinforced after sexual assault, it is also emphasised that their experiences lead to a less regulated sexuality and therefore to new sexual and bodily opportunities beyond passivity and objectification. In sum, the study suggests that the understanding of sexual assault as highly and negatively affecting women’s sexuality needs to be nuanced.

    Does production facilitate discrimination?: An infant mismatch negativity study2013In: Proceedings of Fonetik 2013: Studies in Language and Culture no. 21 / [ed] Robert Eklund, Linköping, 2013, p. 17-20Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    MMN is an ERP component that reflects preattentive discrimination between a recurring standard sound and a deviating sound. MMN is frequently used in infant studies focused on speech development since its elicitation does not require the attention of the child. The general ability of infants to discriminate speech sounds is gradually specialized towards discrimination of phonetic contrasts in their mother tongue. The aim of the present study was to examine if an MMN response is elicited by naturally varying speech stimuli (/ ti/ and / ki/) and if this response is stronger for the speech sound that infants typically produce at this age (/ t/). An EEG experiment with an oddball paradigm was designed. Participants were 19 infants (9-mo). An MMN-like negative response to deviants compared to standards was found, however it was not statistically significant. No significant interaction effect was found for MMN and type of deviant stimulus. Variation in the standard stimuli may have contributed to the lack of effect. It is also possible that the infants already were equally competent in discriminating both speech sounds, which may account for the small difference between the deviant waveforms.
