    The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Hair: En intervjustudie om afrohår i relation till femininitet och skönhet2024Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to research the implications of Afro-Swedish women's relationship with their hair and how it pertains to their view of femininity and beauty. Four one-on-one semi-structured interviews with Afro-Swedish women were conducted to collect relevant material. During these interviews, the women shared their relationship with their hair, experiences relating to their hair in Sweden, and how and if it has affected their perception of their beauty and level of femininity.

    The findings of this study demonstrate that Afro-Swedish women relate femininity to hair that is associated with whiteness, which means hair that is smoother and straighter but also longer than the afro-textured hair associated with black people. The results showed how representations of black women in relation to beauty and femininity were seen as limited by the informants, as those were rarely there to begin with and/or only inclusive of lighter-skinned black women with wigs, weaves, straightened or relaxed hair. All the informants shared experiences of their hair being touched, with or without consent. Through comparison to earlier research, it was found that the experiences and opinions of these Afro-Swedishwomen were more similar than different to black women from the USA for example.

    To conclude, this study disproves the notion of Swedish exceptionalism in relation to the racialization and discrimination of afro-textured hair, as well as the not so colorblind representations of beauty and femininity. These results also show that there is a vast amount of information concerning the lived experiences of Afro-Swedish women, relating to hair and other themes, to be uncovered by researchers in gender studies.

    Cleaning off stigmas: Domestic work and collective identity building in Uruguay.2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Domestic work and care tasks have historically been assigned to women and have never been considered as real work, as they happen within the private scene of the home in both its forms, salaried and unpaid. Due to this conception, dating back from the servitude and slavery systems of the colonial era, and rooted in the patriarchal structure of societies, domestic workers have struggled, and still struggle today in many countries to see their rights recognised. They face stigma and lack an institutional back up. In this sphere, Uruguay sets an example, with one of the most advanced legislations on domestic work in the world after a tripartite negotiation that happened in 2006 between representatives of domestic workers and employers as well as the mediation of the executive power. This research aims to see how the change in legislation changed domestic workers lives and what impact these changes had in the social shared thought. It also looks at the collective identity building of domestic workers in Uruguay through the conduction of interviews with members of the domestic workers’ union, the SUTD. Did the legislative change bring about a cultural change? What lessons can we learn from the Uruguayan case?

    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.

    Patents And Human Rights: Conflicts with Access to Medicine in Pandemics, and COVID-19 Recommendations2020Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the last century, many wars and violations of Human Rights were direct reasons that set the pace to develop Human Rights laws, especially after the end of World War II and the holocausts associated with it. One of the critical Human Rights is that ‘to life’, relating to the right ‘to health’, hence the fundamental accessibility to healthcare services and products. Nonetheless, the last decades have witnessed a significant growth in pharmaceutical patents leading to increased drug prices. Overshoots in prices prohibit access to medicine. Disputes between States, pharmaceutical corporations, patients, and investors have occurred, some of which were not purely related to monetary aspects but also to Human Rights, such as the right to ‘access to medicine’. These disputes are controversial. The applicable legal regimes are patent laws (e.g., the TRIPS Agreement) and International Human Rights Law (IHRL) including the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), European Social Charter, and more. However, it is up to the courts to decide on whether to consider IHRL in the legal decision process. The question turns to whether they consider the two regimes to be intersecting or independent. This thesis tackles the area of intersection between patent law and the right to ‘access to medicine’ in cases of pandemics such as inter alia HIV/AIDS and COVID-19. It investigates whether the right to ‘access to medicine’ exists as a human right by law, to jump to examine whether solutions like Compulsory Licenses (CLs) and patent exceptions are suitable. Then it answers the question whether there should be defragmentation of laws or not. The work analyzes available caselaw to seek a balance between patent laws and the human right to ‘access to medicine’ during pandemics. Caselaw shows that the conflict makes the overlap of laws confusing and in need of determining the set of relevant provisions in the applicable norms. The question on defragmentation in answered by focusing on Section 5 of the TRIPS Agreement and some provisions in IHRL instruments. The thesis proposes a defragmentation of applicable laws that aids in looking at previous solutions to reach the sought balance, and it sheds the light to give recommendations. The work finally recommends being proactive, for times of pandemics like the COVID-19 outbreak, and working on the realization of a unified and harmonized EU patent law to keep up to the objective of delivering quality vaccines/antivirals, on time, within budget, and with supporting applicable laws.

    Cool Nature: Utopian Landscapes in Sweden 1780–18402022In: Sjuttonhundratal, ISSN 1652-4772, E-ISSN 2001-9866, Vol. 19, p. 94-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay, an interdisciplinary group of researchers sets out to address the period 1780–1840 in Sweden in a new way, by placing nature at its centre. With the help of ecocritical and transcultural theory, combined with renewed attention to the Swedish fine arts, learned discourses, and practices, we suggest a new approach to these revolutionary decades. The perceived dissonance, the interplay between climatic conditions and cultural template in early modern and modern Sweden, has not been fully addressed in current research, despite the fact that the relationship between humankind and the environment is a central issue in contemporary society and scholarship. Representations of nature situate the nation, they negotiate the relationship between a sensed reality and an ideal, between human and more-than-human beings. We suggest a focus on the unpredictable space created by negotiations of nature in Swedish representations during this crucial period, and, furthermore, on the ways in which this creative space is charged with utopian possibilities in the early Anthropocene. This is the background and the driving force of the planned research project ‘Cool Nature: Utopian Landscapes in Sweden 1780–1840’.

    Beyond the dichotomies of a coercion and voluntary recruitment, Afghan unaccompanied minors unveil their recruitment process in Iran2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By shedding light on accounts from unaccompanied Afghan asylum-seeking minors in Sweden who were child soldiers in Syria, this thesis explores and examines their narratives and their involvement in the civil war in Syria. The research aims to create a deeper understanding of how these children themselves made sense of their participation in the war by answering the following questions: How were the children approached by the recruiters?

    What kind of reasons for joining the war are put forward by the recruiters and what strategies do the children encounter: a) economic; b) identity formation; c) social deprivation; d) feeling of vulnerability; e) militarization; f) mental development; g) ideology/ religious-sectarian; or all together?

    How do the children perceive these encounters and make sense of their recruitment to the Shiite Fatemiyoun Brigade? To which extent has the ideology of Shi’ism played an important role for them in joining the Syrian War? This is a qualitative study based on in-depth interviews which combines procedures from two approaches and techniques: an ethnographic approach and a narrative approach that explores the interviewees’ experiences in a period of time and also generates detailed insights.

    Despite the fact that none of the respondents testified for being recruited at gunpoint or having been ill-treated, the respondents emphasized that they were forced to join due to the bad circumstances they were living in. In addition, many similarities with other cases regarding child soldiering in several countries have been explored in this thesis, for instance factors related to the socio- economic context and the experiences that are related to the children’s development processes.

    Differences can be located in various details regarding ideologies and indoctrination since the respondents did not share the politico-religious purposes of the recruiters.

    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.

    Synen på det nya landet i brev och notiser från svenska migranter i södra Brasilien kring sekelskiftet 19002023In: Historisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0345-469X, E-ISSN 2002-4827, Vol. 1, p. 3-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The number of Swedish citizens who migrated to Brazil between 1881 and1914 reached between 3,000 and 5,000. Most were labourers or peasants, hopingto find a better life in a new country. Although it did not compare to thesheer size of the migration flows to North America, it still received some attentionin the Swedish press. Newspapers often presented Brazil as an exoticdestination, but there were those who doubted whether it was appropriatefor Swedes to emigrate to Brazil.This article draws on Swedish migrants’ letters and diaries, written andpublished either while the writers were living in Brazil or, sometimes, afterthey had returned to Sweden. The narratives constructed an image of Brazilas a contact zone between cultures, and are best understood as a discourseand social practice in which the individual journeys played out. The textsprovide insights into people’s experiences of the kind we focus on in our analysis:daily life and observations about nature, the environment, and livingconditions as well as other peoples.There are not only extensive sources for how Swedish migrants reportedtheir attempts to ensure the success of their migration projects inthe European settler colonies in southern Brazil, but they are also sufficientlybroad and varied to provide a good overview, while the existenceof several series of letters by the same writers makes it possible to followindividual migration projects. The article explores the contradictions between migrants’ stories, the evolution of individual Swedes’ views onlife in Brazil, and how their known ideas about colonisation, nationalism,racism, and power related to the contact zone between Brazilianand Swedish society and history.By analysing the texts from an interdisciplinary perspective, consideringboth the Swedish and Brazilian contexts, we map Swedes’ migration projectsand contribute to the discussion of settler migration and its social andcultural implications. We find the Swedish migrants’ discourse to have beenheavily impacted by processes at a level that individuals rarely influence. Yetat the same time, their writings reflected the pragmatic realities of life as amigrant. We would argue that most Swedish migrants who wanted to defendtheir decision to emigrate (and perhaps never return) chose to present it inthe best possible light, whereas those who wanted to return and become partof the Swedish community again adapted their descriptions accordingly, offeringa negative picture of life in their new country and often of their ownemigration projects.

    Översättningsvetenskapens värde i samhället2020In: Mellom, ISSN 2387-4880, no 2, p. 146-160Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Har översättnintgsvetenskapen något värde för samhället? Det finns åtminstone två sätt att närma sig den frågan. Svaret skulle kunna vara en reflektion över forskningens relevans för översättare och andra som jobbar med översättningar. Man kan då tänka sig att översättningsforskning har, eller i alla fall borde ha, ett värde för den typ av problem som översättare brottas med när de översätter, samt översättarutbildningar, översätningskvalite, översättares effektivitet, utveckling av programvara, uppdragsgivarnas förståelse av uppdraget, lexikon och andra verktyg. Men svaret skulle också kunna gå i en annan riktning, greppa bredare om man så vill, rakt in i de stora samhällsfrågorna som klimatförändringar, krig, social och global ojämlikhet, trafficking och den pandemi som pågår i skrivande stund, sommaren 2020. I denna text kommer jag främst behandla frågan om översättningsforskningens eventuella värde för samhället ur detta senare perspektiv.

    Vulnerable Viewer Positions: Queer Feminist Activists Watching Paradise Hotel2020In: Vulnerability in Scandinavian art and culture / [ed] Margareta Dancus, Mats Hyvänen, Maria Karlsson, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2020, p. 195-219Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ambjörnsson and Svensson analyse a group of queer feminist activists watching the reality show Paradise Hotel. Inspired by the feminist research tradition’s interest in consumers, the reality TV format is understood as a genre centred on intervention, participation and emotionality, rather than merely representation. Following Sara Ahmed’s thoughts on orientation, the viewers’ emotional reactions of approaching and distancing themselves from the programme are used to investigate various ways of handling and managing vulnerability. This is achieved through localizing a specific queer feminist viewing position, where the viewers’ feminist identification with female subordination is combined with a camp attitude towards the despised and failed. Thus, through embracing and exposing themselves to the hyperbolic, exaggerated, shameless and sometimes sexist and homophobic representations in the programme, they simultaneously negotiate marginalization, subordination, a longing for inclusion in mainstream society and their own potential middle-class advantage.

    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.

    “Reading” Japanese Role-playing Games: On the Example of Atelier Shallie DX (2020)2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Japanese role-playing games attract players worldwide. Though, this is not necessarily due to a fascination with Japanese culture. While considering recent research on video games in Japanese Studies, especially the monograph by Rachael Hutchinson, this thesis puts an emphasis on Game Studies, as represented by Espen Aarseth. Accordingly, it asks whether the attraction of Japanese video games is primarily due to their game ‘play’, or their stories and narrated themes. In Game Studies this issue is known as the controversy between ‘ludologists’ and ‘narratologists’. Taking Atelier Shallie (2014–2020) as its main example, this study studies the different experiences provided by the ludic (gameplay) and the scripted parts (cutscenes). Ultimately it arrives at the conclusion that the combined theory of Ludonarratology has the greatest potential to account for all narrative factors in a video game such as Atelier Shallie. This includes possibilities for future interdisciplinary research.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    Manga (as printed graphic narratives) has become an aging media with regards to reader demographics, technology, and business model; accordingly, series with elderly protagonists are seeing a boom in recent years. From the per- spective of intersectionality, the question arises how the potential age diver- sity relates to gender, especially in terms of manga’s traditional system of gendered genres. The comparison of two representative series—Kaori Tsuru- tani’s Metamorphosis Veranda (since 2017) and Yuki Ozawa’s Sanju Mariko (since 2016)—reveals how publication site (webcomic, print magazine) and a related foregrounding of genre-specific style effect demographic range. One stylistic device is the gutter, or mahaku [liminal time-space], which serves genre-specific nostalgia as well as affectively engaging page compositions in addition to closure.

    Shōjo Across Media: Exploring “Girl” Practices in Contemporary Japan2019Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 2000s, the Japanese word shōjo has gained global currency, accompanying the transcultural spread of other popular Japanese media such as manga and anime. The term refers to both a character type specifically, as well as commercial genres marketed to female audiences more generally. Through its diverse chapters this edited collection introduces the two main currents of shōjo research: on the one hand, historical investigations of Japan’s modern girl culture and its representations, informed by Japanese-studies and gender-studies concerns; on the other hand, explorations of the transcultural performativity of shōjo as a crafted concept and affect-prone code, shaped by media studies, genre theory, and fan-culture research.

    While acknowledging that shōjo has mediated multiple discourses throughout the twentieth century—discourses on Japan and its modernity, consumption and consumerism, non-hegemonic gender, and also technology—this volume shifts the focus to shōjo mediations, stretching from media by and for actual girls, to shōjo as media. As a result, the Japan-derived concept, while still situated, begins to offer possibilities for broader conceptualizations of girlness within the contemporary global digital mediascape.

    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.

    Kollegialt lärande har kommit att bli en viktig del av arbetet inom lärarkollegiet som undervisar i svenska som främmande språk på Stockholms universitet. Genom ett nyskapat kollegialt utvecklingsprogram med auskultationer, samundervisning och kollegiala samtal har kollegiet och ledningen skapat nya sätt att mötas kring olika undervisningsrelaterade frågor. Även om det finns vissa hinder att ta sig förbi, som exempelvis tidsåtgång och ekonomiska aspekter, så överväger de positiva effekterna av det kollegiala lärandet.

    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.

    Abstract [fr]

    Nombre de musées différents collectionnent et préservent les textiles, et collectent les données les concernant. Ils les interprètent également par le biais d’expositions temporaires ou semi permanentes, de publications et d’interventions sur des sites web. Ces interprétations se présentent isolément, ou sont parfois inscrites dans un cadre plus large qui englobe l’histoire de l’art et du design, la science et la technologie, ou encore l’histoire sociale et l’anthropologie, l’histoire locale et les cultures du monde (types de textiles et approches utilisées dans les grandes capitales de la mode – Londres, Paris, Milan, New York – possédant une longue tradition de production et de consommation textile, ou dans des villes manufacturières telles que Krefeld, Lyon ou Manchester, par exemple). Malgré tout, les événements organisés autour des textiles attirent rarement l’attention du grand public ou les éloges de la critique – hormis peut-être certaines expositions novatrices telles que celles organisées par Jean-Paul Leclercq (« Jouer la lumière », Paris, Les Arts décoratifs, Musée de la Mode et du textile, 2001), Thomas P. Campbell, (« Tapestry in the Renaissance: Art and Magnificence, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2002), Amelia Peck et al. (« Interwoven Globe : The Worldwide Textile Trade, 1500-1800 », New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2013-2014), ou John Styles (« Threads of Feeling », Londres, The Foundling Hospital, 2010-2011/Colonial Williamsburg, 2014). Cette discussion vise à tirer parti des différentes expériences culturelles des participants et des diverses formations disciplinaires qu’ils incarnent :- Encourager le débat sur le rôle joué par les musées en matière de fabrication et de représentation de l’histoire des textiles. Les musées ne sont pas simplement dépositaires d’objets textiles : ils écrivent aussi leur histoire, qu’elle soit universitaire ou grand public, par le biais d’expositions et de publications. Comment ce travail s’articule-t-il avec la recherche universitaire et le partage des connaissances ? Tient-il compte des nouveaux apports de la recherche et alimente-t-il celle-ci ? Comment faire évoluer à l’avenir les échanges entre musées et universités dans différentes régions et cultures du monde ? - Déterminer quels musées font preuve d’innovation (à l’échelle locale, régionale, nationale et internationale). En quoi consistent ces innovations, et peuvent-elle contribuer à déterminer de futures orientations, notamment en matière de collection et d’interprétation ? Par interprétation, il faut entendre ici tout type d’explication sous forme numérique ou analogique fournie pour contextualiser les œuvres exposées. - Il est difficile, désormais, d’affirmer que seuls les historiens de l’art sont à même de proposer une étude dynamique des objets datant de la période post 1500, et l’intérêt quasi exclusif porté jusqu’ici aux textiles attachés à la tradition bien établie de la collection d’amateur d’art (essentiellement les tentures et tapisseries répondant à des commandes de prestige) est aujourd’hui remis en question par l’adoption d’approches plus globales par les historiens et les spécialistes de l’histoire du design et de la culture matérielle.

    Bloody Penny Picture Pose: A comparative study on the representation of sexuality and violence within the aesthetics of Victorian Gothic horror2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There is an ongoing fascination with the Victorian era as well as the genre of horror, and the characters originating from the first 18th century Gothic tales still appear in our Western popular culture today. The Victorian Gothic novels contain elements of romanticism and violence which often results in strong undertones of heated sexuality. I argue that it is one of the reasons for the genre’s wide popularity. This thesis examines the representation of femininity and female sexuality within a Victorian horror context by a comparative analyse of illustrations from British 19th century Penny Blood publications with contemporary fashion photographs. The images are analysed by applying Erwin Panofsky’s method of Iconography and with the theoretical framework of feminist visual culture, and historical theories on sexuality, biology and violence. The thesis shows how Gothic visualisations are interpreted and appropriated photographically today, where the latter is darker and more exaggerated than the former. Symbols of sexuality, female agency, dominance and submission are equally found in the Victorian and the contemporary material. However, the Victorian aesthetic has become a platform where a nude, sexual female body in a S&M situation can offer a spectrum of meanings and even symbols of feminism. It is a visual culture where women can fight back, taking revenge on their oppressor and looking fierce when doing so.

    Boken behandlar på ett populärvetenskapligt sätt hur man kan analysera diskriminering med språkliga medel. Den presenterar ett analysschema för olika former av diskriminering med ord och ger exempel från tre empiriska studier: en om den diskursiva behandlingen av "sinnesslöa" i svensk offentlig debatt på 1920- och 1930-talet, en om den diskursiva behandlingen av "dövstumma" och döva på 1930-talet, 1970-talet och 1990-talet, samt en om mediedebatt om invandrare och mångkultur på 2000-talet.
