    Game Save: Game Save Incorporation in Game Design through a MDA Analysis2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is about save systems and will analyze save functions in various games. Save systems in games are usually blamed for harming the suspension of disbelief as it is an act taking place outside the game and should only be used for its intended purpose: letting the players store their game data, and progress whenever they need.

    The game save function developed as rapid leaps of technology were made, with the beginning era of home consoles and home computers allowing players to spend more time playing, creating a demand for longer play sessions in games which lead to a need of methods for storing game data.

    The analysis of save systems is carried out in this paper by using MDA Framework (Mechanics, Dynamics, Aesthetics), a tool used for documenting game design. This framework can be used to analyze a game from a designer‟s or player‟s perspective. By reversing the framework ADM (Aesthetics, Dynamics and Mechanics) one can analyze the user experience, which is how the player perceives the game‟s aesthetics to be, depending on the dynamics and mechanics.

    This analysis aims to provide knowledge of how consistency in game design and the save system can be used to create a cohesive game world that facillitates the player's experience and immersion.

    Kristi mordere: Jøder i danske passionsberetninger fra middelalderen2013In: Danske studier, ISSN 0106-4525, E-ISSN 2246-8323, p. 25-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The image of the Jews as the killers of Jesus has its origins in the Gospels where Jews are portrayed as responsible – directly or indirectly – for the Crucifixion. The enduring myth of the Christ-killer has evolved over nearly two millennia to find a variety of expressions in religion, politics, philosophy, literature and drama. In this article, I examine how Jews are portrayed as murderers in late medieval descriptions of the Passion found in Old Danish sermons and devotional literature. The influence of the saints Augustine of Hippo, Thomas Aquinas and Birgitta of Sweden is examined as also is the question of Jewish culpability in each of the texts and what this would have meant to the audience and readers. The Christkiller motif is shown to be an effective and flexible tool for the Church in marking the boundaries of vita christiana and in teaching empathy and spirituality to its members.

    Lessons in Contempt: Poul Ræff’s Translation and Publication in 1516 of Johannes Pfefferkorn’s The Confession of the Jews2013Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Published in 1516, Poul Ræff's Iudeorum Secreta, a translation of Johannes Pfefferkorn's The Conlession of the Jews, was a landmark in the development of anti-Jewish polemics in Denmark.

    For the first time, Danes were presented with descriptions of Jewish ceremonies that aimed to portray these practices as dangerously anti-Christian, superstitious and deviating from 'real' Biblical Judaism. Contemporary Judaism is described as a rabbinical construction that is worthy of nothing but ridicule and mockery.  Lessons in Contempt explores this key text that comprises a valuable source for a range of academic disciplines: the history of antisemitism, the study of Jewish-Christian relations, social history, the history of religious culture, and medieval and early modern Danish language and literature.

    This book includes an outline of how Jews were portrayed in medieval Danish vernacular literature; a description of Pfefferkorn's life and works; a discussion of Ræff's translation and publication of Iudeorum Secreta; a presentation of the language and style of the Danish version, as well as an edition of the text together with the Latin original, an English translation and an extensive commentary.

    Sara Wennerberg-Reuter: att vara kvinna och kompositör kring sekelskiftet 1800 / 19002013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay presents an example of the musical life of a female composer active in Sweden during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Through a case study on composer Sara Wennerberg-Reuter (1875-1959), the essay contributes information to her biography, which had been lacking specific details.

    Wennerberg-Reuter's biography has been discussed regarding traditional roles of women in music, her relationship to her own artistry and other active women composers, and finally the contemporary reception of Wennerberg-Reuter as a legitimate composer. Aesthetical theories prevalent during Wennerberg-Reuter’s life has been applied in these discussions, such as those presented by Citron, Öhrström and Hanson, combined with Citron's additional theories considering masculine/feminine elements in the musical approach.

    The main conclusions reached regarding the specific conditions enabling a professional status as a composer and woman in Sweden during the given time are;

    a) the liberal permission by the family to pursue higher education in composing, since this was in opposition to the traditions of the time.

    b) the access to a network of musically active women, from which a sense of being part of a female community can be created.

    c) the acceptance from musical institutions such as higher educations, composer's societies and media critics.

    Rätten till platsen: Tillhörighet och samhörighet i två lokala industrisamhällen under omvandling2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is based on the demise of industry that has led to a search for new solutions for the survival of smaller communities traditionally dependent on industrial production. In two local industrial communities in central and northern Sweden, Surahammar and Timrå, industrial dependency has gradually been replaced by a dependency on immigration, largely from the neighboring cities of Västerås and Sundsvall. In the changed order of these local communities, old and new inhabitants have had to negotiate positions in order to co-exist. The objective of the thesis is to present how old and new inhabitants relate to and are attached to the local community as a place in which they reside and live their lives. In focus is an interest in the local identity construction of the inhabitants, i.e. how they identify with the place in which they dwell and live their everyday lives, with and in reference to each other and the outside world. Another concern relates to just how different local options for identification can be for individuals and for collective groups of people.

    Adopting a phenomenological and constructivist perspective, I regard local place as something that both old and new inhabitants are shaped by and shape in a collective process based on contrasts. The analysis is based on empirical data gathered during several years of fieldwork in the studied communities. The empirical data mainly consists of interviews and participant observations with old and new inhabitants in Surahammar and Timrå. Moreover, biographical literature, newspaper articles and data retrieved from the Internet have contributed important insights into how the local place is experienced and valued among the different groups of inhabitants. The thesis recognises the values and symbols that old and new inhabitants agree upon and that often result in spatial attachments. In addition, ideological, social and cultural differences are depicted as factors that shape a place as old and new inhabitants articulate local attachment and identification based on different grounds, needs and dreams.

    Sweden’s unveiled asylum process: Beyond the dichotomies of citizenship and non-citizenship2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to bring to light the perceptions of mentalities of government through the eyes of unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors in Sweden. It also seeks to offer some insight and reflections from a custodian perspective.

    Unaccompanied asylum-seeking children that come to Sweden are entitled to the same rights as the children holding citizenships in Sweden. The right to be heard and listened to is enshrined in the Convention of the Rights of the Child and holds great value during the asylum-process. Thus, the enforcement of these rights, among other rights, shows to be challenging in practice when scrutinizing the asylum process.

    With a pluralistic theoretical approach, leaning on the works of Hannah Arendt and Jacques Derrida, along with the narratives shared by the informants, this study aims to uncover the probabilities of feeling helpless during the asylum process, it also seeks to explore how mechanisms of power relations and control are configured according to the informants.

    Most laws regarding securing rights for refugees are formed by international organizations and constituted by national politicians. These laws operate to gain control at the hand of legality, thus the restrictiveness has been at the expense of the child’s best interest.

    As I believe more initiatives should be taken within the field of migration policy, by having unaccompanied asylum-seeking children as the point of departure, this study is an endeavor to help give them a voice.

    Apotekarprofessionen före och efter förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken 19712013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Abstract

    Nils-Otto Ahnfelt: Apotekarprofessionen före och efter förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken

    1971. Uppsala universitet: Inst. f. idé- och lärdomshistoria, C-uppsats, Höstterminen 2013.

     

    Syftet med undersökningen är att studera om apotekarprofessionen förändrats i samband med förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken 1971. Då jag inte har hittat någon adekvat genomgång som inte utgör en partsinlaga på något vis valde jag att studera apotekarprofessionen genom att kombinera Aktör-Nätverks-Teori (ANT) med professionaliseringsteorier för att besvara mina två huvudfrågor: ”Vad var det som gjorde att apotekaryrket förändrades?” samt ”Hände det i samband med förstatligandet av apoteken?”

    Jag vill påstå att den första frågan kan besvaras med att apotekaryrket förändrades både som en effekt av industrialiseringen av läkemedelsindustrin men också att förstatligandet av apoteken innebar en likriktning av verksamheten över hela landet. Monopoliseringen av apoteken ledde till en centralisering av beslut och hur verksamheten skulle bedrivas. Lokalutformningen kunde ges en ny skepnad då många nya apotek etablerades och behovet av lokaler för tillverkning minskade kraftigt. Fokus för verksamheten lades på distribution och rådgivning till kunderna på bekostnad av kompetens kring hela läkemedelskedjan från inköp, tillverkning och kontroll. Beträffande den andra frågan så vill jag påstå att förstatligandet i sig medförde att deprofessionaliseringen påskyndades då apoteksmonopolet både kunde påverka utbildningen, styra personalrekrytering och lönesättning utifrån sin monopolställning. En reallönesänkning inträffade under perioden 1970 – 1990 delvis beroende på en accentuerad feminisering av yrket. Enligt en professionaliseringsteori så kan detta också tolkas som att det upprättats ett informellt kontrakt mellan de professionella och staten där professionen förblir autonom och upplever sitt yrke som ett kall. Motprestationen blir en låg lön och därmed en lägre status.

    Slutligen så framtonar en bild av en individ nämligen apotekaren Rune Lönngren. Jag vill påstå att utan apotekaren och ”aktören” Rune Lönngren, så hade inte detta kunnat orkestreras så framgångsrikt som det gjordes. Rune Lönngrens kännedom om branschen, hans partitillhörighet, hans deltagande i flera statliga utredningar samt sist men inte minst att han blev Apoteksbolagets första styrelseordförande under tiden 1970 – 1977 ledde till att han blev en mycket större maktfaktor än vad som framgår av tidigare historiska skildringar.

    When Art Becomes Explosive: Two examples from modern European societies of controversies related to artistic representations as they were constructed in Swedish press2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Controversies concerning artistic representation have been part of the artistic arena and the public debate for centuries. With the introduction of mass media as a means of communication, the debate on how to understand or interpret artistic conflicts is being widely spread. The mediated controversies are symbols of what is being discussed, they are part of a struggling to assert particular structuring between discourses.

    For the purpose of analyzing the construction of media discourse, two mediated controversies pertaining to art have been chosen, the controversy on the Ecce Homo exhibition (1998), and the controversy on the Muhammad cartoons (2005-2006). The two controversies share some basic characteristics: in both cases, religion, politics, mass media and art came to be discussed.

    Media is seen as simultaneously reflecting and constructing discourses. The thesis argues that mediated controversies related to artistic representations can be seen as texts within a culture, places where tendencies to discursive change appears.

    Working with this assumption – art as text within a culture – it will be important to study works of art that have been in the center of conflicts, breaks, or controversies that have created new understandings, or, which could be the case, have made clear different endeavors to limit some interpretations or understandings.

    The thesis focuses on discourse analysis as it is conducted by Norman Fairclough. Critical discourse analyses will be used in the study of media texts from four daily newspapers in Sweden, covering a six months period. The result points to a tendency in both mediated controversies to articulate religious discourses of religious in configurations with political discourses. Creative discourse practices were found, but discourses strengthening existing orders of discourse were more frequent.

    Harm, Benefit, and Non-Identity2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis in an invistigation into the concept of "harm" and its moral relevance. A common view is that an analysis of harm should include a counterfactual condition: an act harms a person iff it makes that person worse off. A common objection to the moral relevance of harm, thus understood, is the non-identity problem.

    This thesis criticises the counterfactual condition, argues for an alternative analysis and that harm plays two important normative roles.

    The main ground for rejecting the counterfactual condition is that it has unacceptable consequences in cases of overdetermination and pre-emption. Several modifications to the condition are considered but all fail to solve this problem.

    According to the alternative analysis to do harm is to perform an act which (1) is responsible for the obtaining of a state of affairs which (2) makes a person’s life go worse. It is argued that (1) should be understood in terms of counterfactual dependence. This claim is defended against counterexamples based on redundant causation. An analysis of (2) is also provided using the notion of a well-being function. It is argued that by introducing this notion it is possible to analyse contributive value without making use of counterfactual comparisons and to solve the non-identity problem.

    Regarding the normative importance of harm, a popular intuition is that there is an asymmetry in our obligations to future people: that a person would have a life worth living were she to exist is not a reason in favour of creating that person while that a person would have a life not worth living is a reason against creating that person. It is argued that the asymmetry can be classified as a moral option grounded in autonomy. Central to this defence is the suggestion that harm is relevant to understanding autonomy. Autonomy involves partly the freedom to pursue one’s own aims as long as one does no harm.

    The National Past and Future of European Public Opinion2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    What has happened with the perception that Europeans have of their relationship with the European Union through the years? Is it possible to find some analogies between present times and international relations in the XIX century Europe?

    This work tries to study the period comprehended between the Congress of Vienna in 1815 and the period that ended up in World War I in order to search for behavioural and ideological patterns similar to those of the development of the European Union as we have known it.

    The thesis stands for the idea of that finding similarities and interconnections between the past of European nations may be a help to predict the proper way to integrate the different citizenries of current European countries under a common identity of shared values.

    Hen på bibliotek: En diskursanalys av genusintresserade bibliotekariers tal om begreppet hen2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master’s thesis looks at discourses that use the pronoun ”hen”. The media debate in Sweden over this pronoun in 2012 started in connection with the publishing of a children’s picture book: Kivi och monsterhund, by Jesper Lundqvist and Bettina Jansson. The essay investigates how eight librarians, who take an interest in and work with gender issues, talk about the pronoun hen and about this picture book and other books that have characters which are not named as a sex/gender.

    The essay takes a discursive perspective on reality and on the construction of knowledge and carries out a discourse analysis of the librarians’ talk in the qualitative interviews that were made for this study. In the analysis of these interviews Yvonne Hirdman’s theory of the gender system takes a central part.

    The result of the analysis is seven discourses that are central to the librarians talk about books and gender and where the pronoun hen is a focus or a related issue. The essay argues that gender categorization is a dominant discourse in our western society and that certain uses of the pronoun hen, especially the discourse named as the Human-discourse, challenges this domination. The discourses that most librarians used were within the reasoning of the dominant discourse of gender categorization. A conclusion is that the meaning of the pronoun hen is not determined by any one discourse but that there may be a political intervention working towards integrating the pronoun hen into the dominant discourse of gender categorization and thereby neutralising the pronoun.

Connells teori om hegemonisk maskulinitet. Här ovan har jag ställt konstnären mot familjefadern, det inre mot det yttre för att utforska splittringen av maskuliniteten, dess performativitet och dess underliggande ideal. I samröre med familjelivet har jag upptäckt tydliga tendenser till en upplevelse av feminisering och en fruktan för detta. I sällskap med andra män infinner sig även en känsla av underlägsenhet.           Jag har med stöd av Jonas Frykman och Claes Ekenstams manlighetsstudier påvisat att Karl Oves maskulinitetsideal påminner om  den manssyn som uppstod i samband med borgerlighetens framväxt i slutet på 1800-talet, och den frigörelse från hemmen som männen genomgick. Traditionellt manliga egenskaper som styrka, förmåga att tåla smärta, självbehärskning och askes värdesätts. Detta ideal är till stor del inhämtat från litteraturen. Framställningen av Karl Oves maskulinitet präglas av en strävan att nå upp till dessa orealistiska ideal och en upplevelse av feminisering när det misslyckas. Känslan av feminisering sker som regel i samröre med rollen som familjefar, i samband med barnavård, de dagliga hushållssysslorna samt en oförmåga att leva enligt sina ideal. Karl Oves performativitet präglas av därför av en tvetydighet, där det inre idealet står i direkt konflikt mot det yttre beteendet.   I denna uppsats har jag även utforskat konstnärsrollens maskulinitet och argumenterat för att litteraturen och konsten symboliserar det manliga och fungerar som en tillflyktsort för den avmaskuliniserade Karl Ove. Författarskapet ter sig således som maskulinitetens hemvist och fungerar som en arena för upprättelse, där Karl Ove bekräftar sin maskulina sida. Intellektet och konsten är de medel Karl Ove använder för att bekräfta sin maskulinitet. Motsättningarna mellan familjelivet och konstnärskapet bidrar till denna splittring. En splittring som tvingar Karl Ove att föra en kamp och gå en balansgång mellan sina ideal och sitt agerande i verkligheten.

    Das präteritale Konzept im Frühneuhochdeutschen: Zur Distribution von Präteritum und präteritalem Perfekt in Flugschriften des 16. Jahrhunderts2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis addresses the decline of the preterite tense, referred to as der Oberdeutsche Präteritumschwund (Upper German Preterite Loss), in favour of the present perfect tense. Its main focus is to examine and compare the distribution of the two tenses. The present work combines synchronic and diachronic perspectives in order to provide a thorough account of the process of change; special attention is paid to the development of the present perfect and its different readings. The historical change in the German verbal system – the possibility of using the present perfect instead of the preterite – is a very noticeable feature of Early High German. This change gave the German verbal system two possibilities of expressing states of affairs with the same time reference.

    According to this study, the present perfect is a polyfunctional category carrying not only the perfect but also the preterite reading, which can express the same semantics as the preterite: E,R<S. The two variants coexisted in the 16th century. The analysis is based on a text corpus containing forty political pamphlets belonging to different text types from the period 1509-1552 and considers the distribution of the two tenses according to verbal lexeme, situation type, inflectional class, voice, person, sentence type and the presence of temporal adverbials. Some textual-based factors are also studied.

    Although the preterite is gradually being replaced by the present perfect, it is the preferred tense for the expression of E,R<S in the corpus, accounting for 69% of the data. The highest proportion of preterites is found with the verb sprechen and with the temporal adverb da/do (especially in combination with each other), in temporal clauses (particularly when initiated by da/do and als), in clauses of result and in clauses with modal verbs. High proportions of present perfect verb phrases with preterite readings correlate with second-person subjects, interrogative sentences and adverbials with calendar references. While the preterite is the pure narrative tense, the textual analysis also shows that the proportion of present perfect verb phrases are higher at the beginning of texts and when historical events are being interpreted, evaluated and judged.

    Kärlens Gåta: en studie av gropkeramiska gravkärl på Gotland2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I will discuss the occurrence of ceramic vessels in the graves of the Pitted ware culture on the island of Gotland, Sweden. I will focus on four sites and compare these sites, with hopes of finding some similarities or interesting differences. The sites are Ajvide in Eksta parish, Visby in Visby parish, Västerbjers in Gothem parish and Fridtorp in Västerhejde parish. The idea is to look at the grave goods, with focus on the ceramic vessels, or at least, the bottoms of the vessels, where one can clearly see that it's been deposited in the grave. I will try to analyze the vessels (shape and in some cases height), look where in the grave they've been placed, how many graves contain vessels, who's been given these vessels and if the vessels have filled a certain purpose once they've been deposited in the graves.

    John Harris. Persona, potenzialità e pre-persona2013In: Sintesi Dialettica, ISSN 2037-2957, Vol. 6, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Secondo la nozione sviluppata da John Harris è da considerare persona l’individuo che dimostri la capacità di concepire se stesso in differenti tempi e luoghi e che sia capace di desiderare di fare esperienza di una vita a cui assegna un valore. Tale concezione viene analizzata ricostruendone la genesi, chiarendo quali criteri sottendono le scelte effettuate. L’elaborazione teorica di Harris viene posta a confronto con altre due formulazioni contemporanee, sviluppate rispettivamente da Peter Singer e Vittorio Possenti. Nell’ultima parte sono stati approfonditi criticamente due concetti che emergono dalla descrizione di Harris della persona e che sono ad essa collegati, ossia i concetti di potenzialità e pre-persona.

    The Value of the Pre-Person: Potentiality, Person-Maker Criteria, and Social Dimension2013In: Journal of Philosophy of Life, ISSN 2185-4505, E-ISSN 2185-4505, Vol. 3, no 3, p. 190-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a sense in distinguishing persons from other beings. Persons are forms of life towards whom an agent should feel morally responsible to the highest degree. The aim of this paper is to try and respond to the question: what line of conduct should we adopt with regard to those beings that are not persons but that we have well-founded reasons for thinking may be so in the future? The pre-persons are not, neither should they be considered as they were, persons. If we decide to guarantee their existence or well-being this decision must be based on considerations that are independent of their ontological constitution, of their actual biological status, and of the concept of potentiality. This decision can be taken only accounting for social aspects involved in the consideration of what a person is.

    Om fundamentets inverkan på ordföljden: En studie av muntliga berättelser producerade av andraspråksinlärare av svenska2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är ett undersöka huruvida typen av fundament och dess längd påverkar valet av ordföljd i påståendesatser som börjar med icke-subjekt hos sex vuxna inlärare av svenska som andraspråk. Undersökningens teoretiska utgångspunkt är Selinkers (1972) interimspråk samt Pienemanns (Pienemanns & Håkansson 2009) processbarhetsteori. Materialet består av muntliga berättelser och analysmodellen bygger på performansanalyser samt satsscheman.

    Resultaten visar att fem av sex inlärare använder både omvänd och avvikande ordföljd efter icke-subjekt. Studien visar även att den vanligaste typen av satsdel informanterna fundamenterar är adverbialen och att tids-, rums- och sättsadverbial inte verkar påverka ordföljden. Däremot är det svårt att dra några slutsatser om villkors-, orsaks- och satsadverbialens påverkan på ordföljden, då det fattas tillräckligt med underlag. När tidsadverbialen är bisatser, verkar detta leda till avvikande ordföljd, jämfört med tidsadverbial som inte är bisatser. Undersökningen visar också att objekt i initialposition gynnar inversionen. Angående fundamentets längd pekar resultaten på att långa fundament förekommer oftare med inversion än kortare och att spetsställda bisatser har en negativ påverkan på tillämpningen av inversionsregeln.

    Russian and Swedish Young Learners in Communication in English with the Use of Digital Tools2013In: Conference Proceedings of the 6th edition of ICT for Language Learning, Libreriauniversitaria.it , 2013, p. 259-263Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This project investigates Swedish and Russian young learners’ uses of modern technology in international communication in English. Modern technology plays an increasing role in children’s documentation and international communication at schools. The role of the English language in new ways of communicating and interacting is therefore relevant to investigate. The development of new digital tools implies that young learners are not only consumers but also producers of information in English, and that new forms of representations can be used when communicating in English. The present study is a project of cooperation between the universities in Uppsala, Sweden and Kaliningrad, Russia and describes communication between three schools in Sweden and three schools in Russia. The communication at the websites provides useful material of 12-year-olds who used English as their lingua franca and as means of communicating at three common websites with the help of blogs, podcasts and films from September 2012 to May 2013. All the young learners’ productions at the three websites were studied in terms of modes of communication, length of contributions, structural complexity in the English language and topics selected in the messages. The results show that young Russian and Swedish learners are able to use the English language in authentic communication by using different digital tools within the topic fields of the levels A1 and A2 of the CEFR. The learners’ production showed evidence of the occurrence of complex structures and current non-standard features of the English language with very few instances of misunderstandings or communication breakdowns.
