    Ett enat folk i en splittrad värld: En analys av kurdisk etnonationalism i ett söndrat  Mellanöstern2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims at explaining how the cultural identity of Kurds has changed in regard to patriotism and ethnonationalism in connection with the Arab Spring and the emergence of IS/Da’ish in Syria and Iraq. The main purpose of this paper is to contribute to a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanisms behind the growth of ethnonationalism among Kurds under the threat of armed conflict. The study’s main theoretical arguments rests upon a base of previous anthropological research made on the subjects nationalism and identity, and is additionally joined by theoretical arguments on ethnicity from the field of peace and conflict studies. By examining critical moments in the past and present history of Kurdish ethnonationalism as well as investigating the use of symbols representing Kurdish identity, I conclude that the emergence of the Arab Spring and the rise of IS/Da’ish has boosted Kurdish identity in regard to patriotism and ethnonationalism. Nonetheless, further research might still have to be made in order to completely understand the possibly even more detailed mechanisms behind the effects of conflicts, as well as other surrounding factors, on identity, patriotism and ethnonationalism.

    Establishing a Culture of Migration: The Spatial, Economic, and Social Planning of Philippine-Korean Labour Migration2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the second half of the 20th century the Philippines have supplied the world with migrant workers. Today, almost one tenth of the population is residing abroad. Labour migration has become an important source of revenue to both state and private actors through remittances, for the Philippines, and a source of cheap labour battling labour shortage, in the receiving countries. Today, the global labour market is a distinct and important part of what we call globalisation. This is portrayed in this thesis through the lens of Philippine-Korean labour migration.

    The purpose of this thesis is to illustrate the emergence of migrants as a commodity for export, the institutionalised creation of migrants, the normalisation of labour migration, and containment of migrants through legal and spatial constraints, in Manila and in Seoul.

    This thesis look at the ways in which labour migration, as an economic policy, is internalised and transformed into a culture of migration. I argue that the effects of a culture of migration is felt not just by the labour migrants themselves, but also by their families and by the Philippines as a whole. As such, the reliance on remittances as a source of income has transformed domestic and global infrastructures as well as norms and social behaviour. Moreover, this thesis aims to add to the discussion on migration and remittances by exploring social dimensions and consequences of the globalisation of the labour market.

    Scripts of Kingship: Essays on Bernadotte and Dynastic Formation in an Age of Revolution2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    When French Marshal Jean Baptiste Bernadotte was elected heir to the Swedish Throne in 1810, a dramatic dynastic venture commenced. In an age of revolutions, marked by political as well as cultural upheavals, the commoner from Pau was transformed into King Charles XIV John and the head of a new royal dynasty in Sweden and Norway. Although fraught with challenges, the venture proved successful. As restoration set in, and the Napoleonides of Europe fell one after the other, Bernadotte held fast, and today the dynasty is approaching its bicentennial on the throne.

    In nine illustrated essays, the formation of a dynasty is explored as it unfolded in media such as ceremonies, spatial arrangements, opera performances, publicity and panegyrics.

    Kvinnorättsförsvarare i Colombia: – starka aktörer eller offer?2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Colombia has been characterized by an internal armed conflict since the 1960s where several violations of the human rights have followed. Threats and violence against human rights defenders is one example and this is directed toward both men and women in an attempt to deter these brave individuals from continuing their work.

    This thesis focuses on the commitment of women’s human rights defenders in Colombia. Numerous international human rights organizations and institutions claim that women are a particularly vulnerable group, which is why I choose to focus on this group. Starting from different feminist theories and with regard to intersectional perspectives, I want to find out: What motivates women in Colombia to defend women’s human rights? Do they pursue any specifically important issues? How do they handle the obstacles they face in their work? These questions are posed in order to find out how these women’s human rights defenders work with human rights in relation to the obstacles that they face. I want to find out what strategies they use to handle the obstacles that they are faced with. The material of the thesis mostly consists of semi-structured interviews with women from domestic women’s human rights organizations in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá.

    The results show that women’s human rights defenders incentive is individual and cannot be too generalized. According to the common components in the women’s answers they are motivated by the need to fight injustices, mainly social- and political injustices in relation to being a woman and violations within the armed conflict. They are empowered to continue their work through each other, through the processes and the determination to not give up. There are many specifically important issues, for example land rights, gender-based violence and rights of the ethnic minorities. Some of these rights are even said to be today’s biggest challenge for the country. The women’s human right defenders handle the obstacles to their work through not giving up until the injustices are fought and through giving each other hope. They refuse to let the perpetrators win.

    Abstract [sv]

    I den vetenskapliga forskningen förväntas att ens resonemang och slutsatser legitimeras på ett systematiskt och korrekt sätt enligt det vetenskapliga fältets normer. Men frågan om vad som egentligen utgör meningsfull och legitim forskning är en omstridd fråga, kanske särskilt när det gäller humaniora. Genom idén om att det existerar ett mätbart värde i allt ges humaniora en lägre status då den inte bidrar på ett mätbart sätt genom bevisföring. Om humanioras syfte för akademin och samhällsutvecklingen helt har förbigåtts - hur ligger det då till med kunskaperna om retorik? Existerar det ett retoriskt vetenskapligt fält och hur uppfattar den akademiska fakulteten, och retorikerna själva, ämnet retorik?

    Rhetorica Scandinavica akademisk och tvärvetenskaplig tidskrift vars syfte är att publicera och på så sätt belysa den skandinaviska retorikforskningen. Det är den enda vetenskapliga tidskriften i Skandinavien som specifikt tar upp retorisk forskning och dess relevans för andra akademiska områden och samhället. Denna uppsats är en undersökning av de relevanssammanhang som tecknas i de svenskspråkiga artiklarna i Rhetorica Scandinavica. Uppsatsen tittar på om det existerar några skillnader beroende på forskarens kön, akademiska disciplin och om det framkommer några skillnader i materialet över tid. Det här är dels är relevant för den massiva utbildningsvåg inom ämnet retorik som samhället idag står inför, samt retorikens trovärdighet som ämne och forskningsområde.

    Conflict, Resources and the Responsibility of Corporations: What responsibility do natural resources corporations that operate in conflict risk areas have to ensure that human rights are respected?2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis aims at analyzing the responsibility corporations, which are extracting valuable minerals from conflict risk and conflict affected areas, have in terms of respecting human rights. The thesis analyzes corporate responsibility mostly from a moral but also a legal perspective. In terms of the moral responsibility, the thesis has strategically chosen to examine the moral responsibility of corporations to respect human rights through the moral responsibility of their employees. The stance, that the thesis launches, is that the moral responsibility of the employees as individuals does transcend upon corporations making the business enterprise responsible for respecting human rights. The legal obligation of corporations in this matter is referred to domestic court decisions, which have ruled that corporations through business decisions have violated the human rights of affected individuals. 

    The theoretical framework is based on the principle of due diligence, which has proven to be crucial when incorporating management policies and risk-assessment mechanisms within the structure of corporations. Through the analysis of the Kimberley Certification Scheme, which is a state-to-state agreement with the aim to hinder conflict-diamonds from entering into the international market, a lack of due diligence framework suitable for corporations has been revealed. The scheme is flawed as it does not provide corporations extracting diamonds from conflict risk and conflict affected areas with a due diligence framework. The thesis draws the conclusion that corporations are both morally and legally responsible to respect human rights. In addition, the Kimberley Certification Scheme is a step to hinder conflict diamonds from entering into the international market. However, the scheme must be re-examined and elaborated into a framework where due diligence is included. These measures will allow corporations to operate with clear guidelines on how to extract valuable minerals in conflict risk and conflict affected areas whilst performing due diligence. Such an adjustment will allow corporations to avoid either directly or indirectly to finance actions, which could lead to human rights abuses.

    Abstract [en]

    This text discusses the use of extant objects and written documents as sources of information. It focuses on three questions: How does the information in objects differ from that given by written sources? What kind of knowledge may be gained by letting the information in objects and documentary sources interact? And is it possible to move from a micro-historical to a cultural perspective by combining objects and written sources? These questions are illustrated by examples from the Wardrobe of Robes at the Swedish Royal Court during the first half of the 17th century. From this organization there are extant garments and written documents, covering the same space in time, which can be combined in various ways. Through these sources, and the surrounding context given by the western European cultural framework, it is possible to exemplify how different forms of interaction between textile objects and written documents may give various kinds of information and how this information can be made available.

    Elsa Beata Brahes begravningsdräkt2013In: Grevars och bönders tempel: En bok om Brahekyrkan på Visingsö / [ed] Robin Gullbrandsson, Jönköping: Jönköpings länsmuseum , 2013, p. 310-326Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Elsa Beata Brahe was the eldest daughter of the Lord High Chancellor of Sweden, Per Brahe the younger. She died when she was only 23 years old in the spring of 1653. She was interred in extremely costly clothing made of thick silk satin, covered in decorative embroidery of metal thread with lace metal edgings of gold and silver thread. During the seventeenth century, various types of burial costumes occurred. Elsa Beata’s burial clothing displays several signs of having been a fashionable dress of the period, reused for the interment. Such a costly and fashionable gown was an important part of the visual manifestation of power displayed by the nobility during the Swedish Era of Greatness, exhibiting the social standing of the bearer. Only the absolute top classes of society wore such an exclusive gown as Elsa Beata’s burial clothing. The gown is comparable to the costumes, entirely covered with embroidery, bought from France for the coronations of Queen Kristina and King Karl X Gustav in 1650 and 1654.

    The burial clothing of Elsa Beata Brahe became known during the documentation work that was carried out when the coffins of Brahe Church were investigated in 1932. The dress was examined again during preservation work on the coffins, in the summer of 2011. In the present state, the clothes consist of a two-piece gown, shoes, shoe roses, stockings, a neckerchief and a cloth for tying around her hair, like a small cap. In the text of this article, the preserved costume is set into its cultural context of the seventeenth century society.

    "Man kan fråga sig själv. Om jag ser ut sådär, kommer jag vara lyckligare då?": En studie om gymnasieelevers syn på hälsobegreppet, dess plats i media samt inom ämnet Idrott och hälsa2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur en utvald grupp gymnasieelever ser på begreppet hälsa. Studiens utgångspunkter är hälsobegreppets innebörd, dess plats i media samt i ämnet Idrott och hälsa. Hälsa är enligt vetenskaplig definition föränderlig och innefattar individens hela liv och livskvalitet. Studien bygger på sex intervjuer med gymnasieelever. Insamlat data har sedan transkriberats. Resultatet visar att synen på hälsobegreppet är relativt lik bland gymnasieelever, där fokus ligger på att må bra som person samt att vara fysiskt aktiv på den nivå som passar individen. Den mediala vinklingen av begreppet anses primärt vara kopplat till det yttre, där en smal och ungdomlig kropp idag anses vara idealet. Detta har enligt mina respondenter stor påverkan på ungdomar, som idag i stor utsträckning tränar och anpassar sin livsstil för att nå upp till dessa ideal, mycket på grund av viljan att passa in. Idrott och hälsa ses i samband med detta som en viktig kunskapsförmedlare gällande kritiskt tänkande mot den mediala vinklingen. Undervisningen anses gynna gymnasieelevers kunskaper om hälsobegreppet likväl de komponenter som utgör en hälsosam livsstil. Ämnets fokus anses vara processen gällande det psykiska och fysiska välmåendet, i motsats till det slutgiltiga målet som presenteras inom media. Detta anses i sin tur utveckla mina respondenters syn på begreppet samt det kritiska bemötandet av den utseendefixering som finns i bland annat media och sociala medier.

    Conflict Drivers between the Lou Nuer and Murle of South Sudan2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes the major conflict drivers behind an inter-ethnic conflict in South Sudan between the Murle and Lou Nuer people groups in 2011 and 2012. It will begin with the historical context of the current conflict. Myriad theories exist as to the causes of conflict, but there is no defined method to analyze each and every context. The second step of this paper will be to examine three different theoretical frameworks- political, economic and social. Conflicts are driven by multiple causes, and in this case various types of causes as well. Different perspectives on the reasons behind conflict must be analyzed, and in particular how they interact and influence each other. The final task will be to consider the significance of various political, economic and social conflict drivers in the particular context of the Lou Nuer and Murle of Jonglei State, South Sudan.

    The research was carried out over a period of eight months in South Sudan and during the time period both sides continued to carry out major attacks. It is recognized that studying an ongoing conflict is ambitious as conflicts are not static and continually change. However, multiple approaches are being attempted to end the fighting between the Murle and Lou Nuer while not fully understanding all the causes behind the conflict. This paper intends to expand humanitarian comprehension on the topic and encourage parties involved in the peace process to implement programs that counteract the conflict drivers.

    Leufsta Bruksarkiv: En vägledning2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis serves as a guide to the holdings of Leufsta Bruksarkiv, a small archival institution situated at a former ironworks in Lövstabruk on the east coast of Sweden. The holdings stem from a period of advanced iron manufacturing in Sweden, from the mid-17th century to the first decades of the 20th century. The holdings consists foremost of bookkeeping, but we also find documents dealing with judicial matters, maps and blueprints.  

    During the 17th century Lövsta bruk (also Leufsta bruk) became the largest manufacturer of iron in Sweden. Louis de Geer, a Dutch businessman who is sometimes referred to as the father of Swedish industry, was involved in the ironworks already in 1626 and took over the ownership of the facility 1643. He developed a new order in Swedish iron manufacturing by bringing workforces to Lövsta from his native region of Wallonia, today a part of Belgium. Leufsta Bruksarkiv holds records from several ironworks in the region that all have a relation to Lövsta bruk or Gimo bruk – another big facility related to the de Geer family. The relationship between these ironworks is described in the guide.

    The bookkeeping shows a consistency and a richness of detail, providing an insight into the life and labour at the ironworks. The books are also a source for genealogical research and research on estates and villages in the region. Research into the judicial records, amongst which regulations of properties and ownership can be found, may help those who seek to trace the transformation of the area or the history of a specific estate. The historical maps provide a further complement in such matters.

    The guide will provide an aid for visitors and help recognize what information can be drawn out of the records. It also aims to situate the holdings in its historical context by drawing the larger picture of the de Geerian dynasty and the process of iron manufacturing, as well as discussing the vocabulary found in the documents.  

    This is a one year master’s thesis in Archival Science.

    Abstract [sv]

    Lars Anders Johansson visar tydligt riskerna med en alltför politiserad kultursfär. Om staten är den huvudsakliga finansieringskällan leder det till utarmning och likriktning eftersom alla som söker bidrag måste anpassa sig till dominerande trender. Johanssons läsvärda bok irriterar och biter sig fast.

    The Imperfect Use of the Past in Resettlement2017In: EVALUATION FOR AGENDA 2030: Providing Evidence on Progress and Sustainability / [ed] Rob D. van den Berg, Indran Naidoo, Susan D. Tamondong, Exeter: IDEAS, UNDP , 2017, 1, p. 239-256Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses the use of the past in the implementation, knowledge production, and evaluation of resettlement projects. It argues that heritage and memories are neglected resources, and necessary analytical elements of the sociocultural dimensions of resettled societies. Sociocultural dimensions are the tangible and intangible resources that constitute everyday routine culture, supported and molded by the social relations, memories, heritage, and emotions that are attached to the landscape and environment. These dimensions are the least studied and the least understood in resettlement. It is further argued that the present resettlement models are insufficient to grasp the longitudinal consequences of resettlement. A consideration of heritage and memory would improve the model. The use of the past from a longitudinal perspective is explored through the ethnography of the Zimapán resettlement project.

    The Setting of Negotiation Agendas in Involuntary Resettlement2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    International polices on involuntary resettlement have been developed for the last 30 years following the ground breaking World Bank guidelines from the 1980s.  The World Bank is now reviewing their safeguards on involuntary resettlement presented in The Environmental and Social Safeguards Frame (ESF) (2014).These policies partially set the agenda for the protracted and conflictive on-the ground negotiations between the main stakeholders (lender, client (government or private) and the people to be displaced. In these policies, the participatory model has been in focus in order to empower and strengthening the community engagement. This paper argues that it is not about participation per se, but about negotiations.

    Abstract [en]

    The presence of a rich intangible and tangible cultural heritage is closely connected to the tourist industry and its economic potentials. But who earns? Who develops? And what is the dynamics between the external and local agents? The purpose ot this paper is to explore these complex and dialectic relations between local and foreign adventure enterprises that operate in the tourist industry.

    Arkiv, ålder och exkludering: En studie av åldersrelaterade normer inom tillgängliggörandeverksamheten vid statliga arkivinstitutioner2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to reveal the age-related norms which control the process of making public archives accessible. It focuses on physical access and visitors at the physical archival institutions. More specifically, it examines which groups are not included in the archival institutions’ target groups and why this is the case, the archival employees’ views on visitors’ needs and the archival institutions’ action space regarding the process of making archives accessible.

    The theoretical framework for this thesis is a combination of a norm critical and an intersectional perspective. The main method used is qualitative interviews with employees at archival institutions. Two different archival institutions have been examined, which are both departments of public authorities.

    The main result of the thesis is that there exist normative systems within the archival institutions which favour elderly people and people within the academic world. Age also matters less for people within the academic world. Accordingly, people outside of these groups can be regarded as non-target groups. Factors which can contribute to exclusion are also non-western origin and to be occupied at daytime. The explanations to why some groups are excluded are lack of resources and knowledge, a reactive approach, and the institutions’ opening hours. Regarding visitors’ needs, many visitors need help searching for material and formulating their needs, which they can also expect to be helped with. Needs which the archival employees can not satisfy are extensive reading of handwriting or carrying out research for the visitor. In general, it seems that people within the archival institutions’ target groups are more likely to get the exact help they need. The archival employees have a relatively great action space when it comes to making archives accessible, as the policy documents don’t mention this activity in detail.

    This is a two years master’s thesis in Archive, Library and Museum studies.

    Friendship is Magic: My little pony och de män som tittar på den2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett antal vuxna personer som tycker om och följer serien My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic har intervjuats med semi-strukturerade samtalsintervjuer, för att undersöka närmare vad det är som får  vuxna människor att bli så väldigt intresserade av en serie för små flickor. Till detta har även gjorts grafiskt arbete, där de intervjuade tolkats om som karaktärer i serien, något som är väldigt populärt inom subkulturen de tillhör, bronies.

    Serien framhålls som inte bara underhållande utan även en positiv förebild för både barn och vuxna, oavsett kön. Trots att de vuxna som öppet följer serien ofta blir ifrågasatta eller förlöjligade håller de intervjuade fast vid sitt intresse, och gör vad de kan för att förklara för de som inte förstår. Serien ses som feministisk och någonting som kan influera samhället till det bättre, mycket genom att vara en positiv förebild för unga flickor.

    Rising up against the subordination of life in Barcelonès: an ethnography of the struggle of the afectadas for a future without debt chains2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The collapse of the Spanish real-estate market in 2007-8, and the colossal destruction of jobs it provoked, put an abrupt end to a decade-long model of growth, which was based on the construction and tourism industries as its primary motors as well as on the massive indebtedness of the labouring masses. In the severe economic downturn that ensued, a social conflict appeared: on the one side, the many indebted people forming the movement of the Plataforma de Afectados por la Hipoteca (PAH) and, on the other side, the financial industry. This study offers an ethnographic account of the aforementioned conflict as it unfolds in the precarious reality of Barcelona and Santa Coloma de Gramenet, with a particular emphasis on the experience and struggle of the affected persons. The argument advanced is that the main predicament of the debt conflict is the subordination of life processes to the imperatives of financial accumulation; a situation enabled by a specific constellation of forces, involving the successive governments of Spain, the financial elite, the police, and the courts.

    Normbrott i spel: Effekterna av brutna färgnormer2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During this project we created two prototypes comprised of three short puzzles with the goal to see how players react when they encounter broken color norms. We gathered eight test players who considered themselves to have several years of experience playing computer games and watched them as they played to record the amount of time they required to solve each puzzle. We then interviewed the test players with the goal to clarify if they recognized the color norms and why they made the choices they made in each puzzle.

    According to the results from the play sessions and interviews, we noticed that most of our play testers identified the color norms we chose to test. "Red potion restores health" and "A colored key opens a door of the same color" were the most recognized color norms while the color norm "Green button leads to a positive effect while a red button leads to a negative effect" was only identified by just over half of our players. The rest of the players told us they identified a fourth color norm, "Red button is an action button".

    The play sessions also show that confusion caused by color norms may increase the play time as long as the player can identify the norm and make decisions based on colors. The reason to this confusion may depend on a pattern the player recognized as the solution to the puzzle. When this solution does not work, the player gets confused and must rethink the situation. In the interviews the players told us that they act on the objects' color and they consider themselves to become confused when the color norm is broken.

    Mänskliga rättigheter vid en naturkatastrof: En jämförelse mellan Haiti och Thailand2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There are three main purposes for this thesis; the first is to distinguish the possible violations that can occur in time of natural disasters. The second is to analyze if there is a correlation between political systems and how the effected country handles the aftermath of a natural disaster. The third purpose is to determine the role of the global community and what responsibility lies with them. The issue is often that the aid becomes the main object for discussion and analysis, but the focus rarely shifts to the effected State. Therefore the focus in this essay is the political system and how they cope with the human rights violations that can occur in a time of natural disaster. The questions are; what human rights are at risk of being violated during a natural disaster? What general impact do the different political systems have on how they handle the human rights violations that arises? In which ways can other countries assist in a natural disaster and what responsibility do the global communities have?To be able to discuss human rights, it is necessary to know one perspective of how they came to be. For this purpose, this thesis will explain human rights from the perspectives of Jack Donnelly and Ronald Dworkin. They speak about rights and obligations; Donnelly means to say that all rights are universal and Dworkin put rights in a perspective of equal respect and concern. Some of the rights violated in the aftermath of the natural disaster were the right to a family life, the right to personal security and the right to ones property.

    When analyzing the political systems and the responsibility of the world in the consequences of a natural disaster, I applied Ulla Erikson-Zeterqvists explanation of early institutional theory that implies tree conditions that make an organization successful. The first condition is where the administrative control lays, second the commitment of grassroots organizations and third, the participation of the local community. In this analysis the conclusion is that the political system is not the main factor in upholding human rights. The main factor is the stability of the State and what the State is willing to do for its citizens. The stability of the States determines the standard for what human rights mean and how the aid is structured. If the State is corrupted it makes it harder for the global community to assist. The countries history affects their behavior and in a time of crisis, the States true commitment is shown.

    Changing the Paywall in Single-Player Games2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Game companies are always looking for more ways to increase consumers and their revenue as well as how consumers purchase games. Several business models have been introduced that this thesis will look at, free-to-play, adding downloadable content to existing games, freemium and premium games.

    This thesis attempts to provide answers to what business models there are available for game developers and how that would influence the development of the single-player games to lower the point of entry for the consumers.  It will focus on narrative single-player games and will use the business models to try and answer the question.

    A survey was handed out that investigated the respondent’s reaction to changes for BioShock Infinite developer by Irrational Games. The models were presented and compared to how the respondents reacted to the questions.

    Together with how companies are releasing games now this thesis came to the conclusion that in order to lower the entry point, the games need to be split and released episodically, together with increased downloadable content that added further playability to the game.

    Bevarande av och tillgänglighet till samlingar: exempel från Västerbottens museums textilsamling2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is performed as a case study in Västerbotten Museum's textile storage space. The intention with this study is to investigate the relationships between the museum’s tasks: to collect, preserve and make the collections accessible. The aim is to reveal the problems that exist in museums today with increasing collections, less resources for the preservation of the collections and increasing requirements on accessibility. The aim is to deduce the problem by finding out how the different tasks relate to one another today.  It will also be interesting to find out how the history and traditions of the museum has influenced the work as it looks today and how external and internal factors affect the priorities set out in the practical work in the museum. The study is primarily based on interviews with those who were responsible for the textile storage space during the period under investigation. The statements are analyzed and connected to the data in registers, annual and quarterly reports and museum scientific research to provide the context necessary for understanding the context.

    The result shows that the problems existing in the relationship between the museum’s different missions seem to be largely attributable to the fact that preservation and collecting are placed behind closed doors. And therefore mainly characterized by traditions while accessibility is constantly remodeled by social changes. This seems to have created a lack of understanding and commitment to the collections generally and inability for the museum to obtain resources to these areas.

    Connected on a heart level: An anthropological discussion about interracial relationships in post-apartheid South Africa2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout history South Africa has been dominated by a white race group and during the era of apartheid racial segregation was encouraged as well as an idea of racial order was established through institutionalised racism. Marriage across racial borders was prohibited according to the Mixed Marriages Act. The end of apartheid and the transition to democracy in 1994 meant a radical political change within the country, but the issue of race became a question of social and economic inequality. In this essay I study the approaches and experiences of interracial couples in the post-apartheid society, and interracial couples impact on the South African society. I am particularly interested in the South Africans idea of social order today and whereas racial thinking is still present in the postapartheid society. I use qualitative content analysis to discuss ideas of order in relation to race and my material consist in audio files from interviews with interracial couples, as well as literature, books and articles. In my analysis I discuss cultural and social norms, fear of race pollution, prejudice and racial stereotypes as well as thoughts about unity and humanness. Racial thinking is still present in the South African society although the development of relationships across racial borders has increased since the end of apartheid. The interracial couples in my study notice a certain uncomfortableness among the people in their surroundings, some more than others, because people are still getting used to the thought of interracial couples. Although racist beliefs and power relations are still implied by the surroundings the couples appear to feel increasingly at home in South Africa, even though they live in an in-between world, in a New South Africa.

    Herders hieroglyf: Om den okända metoden i hans författarskap2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The dissertation addresses the problem if Johann Gottfried Herder had a method when he composed his works. The overwhelming majority of scholars says no and describes him as a restless author who reworks manuscripts; digressing and repeating himself; leaning on others rather than writing a monographic work on his own – someone who does not write complete and structured works, and therefore is seen as a precursor in history rather than occupying a place in it.

    This thesis claim that Herder’s work is structured in minutest detail, and demonstrates how Herder uses typographic marks to guide the reader through his dialectical text-structure.

    Herder uses a four-step dialectic. It starts from a center-position with a confused issue, which is analyzed and put together again. The second position analyses one aspect of the issue at hand in one direction and the third in an opposite direction. These consecutive steps in the reading process could be regarded as simultaneous parts of an image. The fourth fuses and simultaneously changes them into a new center-position, which presents the issue in a new form.

    This four-step movemen can be repeated in a series of such movements. The fourth position turns then into a new starting-point. The issue is further analyzed. Positions two and three continues the perspective of foregoing two and three. The fourth position brings together.

    The first part gives a representive overview of the research on Herder. Special attention is givien to editions, and how they leave out typographic marks important for understanding the text’s structure. Research is characterized as a turning away from Herder’s works, either to handwriting or to a tradition which Herder only partly belongs to. Herder is instead situated in aesthetics – his “human philosophy”. The second part analyzes The Oldest Document of the human race.

    The Marketplace of Ideas: The Rhetoric and Politics of Tax Reform in Sweden and the United States1995In: Polity, ISSN 0032-3497, E-ISSN 1744-1684, Vol. XXVIII, no 1, p. 1-23Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article analyzes the politics and rhetoric of tax reform in the United States (1986) and Sweden (1990). The two cases show that loosely regulated idea markets may yield policies that are more uneven, less consistent with the rhetorical claims made for them, and less strongly supported by the public than is the case with tightly regulated idea markets.
