    Exploring the relation between referencing practices and citation impact: A large-scale study based on Web of Science data2018In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, ISSN 2330-1635, E-ISSN 2330-1643, Vol. 69, no 5, p. 728-743Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this large-scale contribution, we deal with the relationship between properties of cited references of Web of Science articles and the field normalized citation rate of these articles. Using nearly 1 million articles, and three classification systems with different levels of granularity, we study the effects of number of cited references, share of references covered by Web of Science, mean age of references and mean citation rate of references on field normalized citation rate. To expose the relationship between the predictor variables and the response variable, we use quantile regression. We found that a higher number of references, a higher share of references to publications within Web of Science and references to more recent publications correlate with citation impact. A correlation was observed even when normalization was done with a finely grained classification system. The predictor variables affected citation impact to a larger extent at higher quantile levels. Regarding the relative importance of the predictor variables, citation impact of the cited references was in general the least important variable. Number of cited references carried most of the importance for both low and medium quantile levels, but this importance was lessened at the highest considered level.

    Att delta i förändring: En diskursanalytisk studie om användardelaktighet i bibliotek 2.0.2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    The purpose of this study has been to find out what concepts of user participation exits in the theory formation of Library 2.0. The study has also investigated if theories about Library 2.0 have been affected by the practical experiences made by the implementations of Library 2.0 in library environments.

    The source material consists of texts published in the international journals Library Review, Library Management, or Journal of Documentation, within the years of 2005-2011. The method used is the critical discourse analysis, mostly inspired by Norman Fairclough.  The critical discourse analysis is different from the discourse analysis since it acknowledge the ability of changes. Thus, this study focus more on processes of change than other discourse analysis within the field of LIS (Library and Information Science).

    Four discourses were found in the selected source material – the Social Plurality Discourse, the IT- Pedagogical Discourse, the Market Discourse and the Expert Discourse. A positive view of user participation in library activities was found in the first three of these, even if the Social Plurality Discourse often presented a critical view on the technological emphasis in Library 2.0. The Expert Discourse has a negative approach to user participation in general, and especially to user tagging functions in Library 2.0. The Expert Discourse is the most common in the texts published in 2011 and often uses arguments based on practical experiences that show that the users, so far, have not participated in Library 2.0-services. These arguments have the potential to cause change in the discourse practice of the other discourses here presented. However, the frame of this study is to narrow to evaluate if such a change has actually taken place.

    The study also shows that the different discourses often have different meanings about what the user wants and needs. There might be a risk that the position “user” is being exploited to legitimate the mission that each discourse claims to be the most important for the library.

    Price revisited: on the growth of dissertations in eight research fields2011In: Scientometrics, ISSN 0138-9130, E-ISSN 1588-2861, Vol. 88, no 2, p. 371-383Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies the production of dissertations in eight research fields in the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. In using doctoral dissertations it builds on De Solla Prices seminal study which used PhD dissertations as one of several indicators of scientific growth (Price, Little science, big science, 1963). Data from the ProQuest: Dissertations and Theses database covering the years 1950-2007 are used to depict historical trends, and the Gompertz function was used for analysing the data. A decline in the growth of dissertations can be seen in all fields in the mid-eighties and several fields show only a modest growth during the entire period. The growth profiles of specific disciplines could not be explained by traditional dichotomies such as pure/applied or soft/hard, but rather it seems that the age of the discipline appears to be an important factor. Thus, it is obvious that the growth of dissertations must be explained using several factors emerging both inside and outside academia. Consequently, we propose that the output of dissertations can be used as an indicator of growth, especially in fields like the humanities, where journal or article counts are less applicable.

    Invandrade kvinnors upplevelser av informationssamhället - spelar biblioteket någon roll?: En kvalitativ studie om informationsbehov, användning och sökning2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master´s thesis presents a study of female immigrants. Using a qualitative method I sought knowledge and understanding of these women´s information behaviour.  The purpose of this paper was to study the user group´s information need, use and seek. It was an interesting aspect to see what barriers they felt themselves struggle against in situations of seeking information. Another aspect was to find out their likenesses and differences in terms of need, use and seek. Finally I wanted to explore what experiences the user group had of the library and how it can develop it´s activity to better suit the immigrants. The theoretical procedure has taken support from the theories and work of Pierre Bourdieu. Among other things it was possible to state that the social sphere of the women played a big part in their information seeking behaviour. The circle of friends and family were in fact the biggest source of information. The study shows that the govenment has been absent and that the immigrants lacked a lot of information since the arrival to Sweden. It has also been proved that a few of these women live in absence of vital information. A fact which is related to Chatman´s small world theory. It means that these women are locked in a situation without access to information and that the information that they do seek and find is only what they need the most. They never find out more than they really need and thereby can´t explore the options they could have had. In the group there were variations in terms of use of libraries. The libraries need above all to introduce themselves and their activity better to these immigrants. Parts of the study group struggle with the Swedish language every day, they lack an outcome for their interests and wishes to gain more computer skills. The libraries need to present fields in which the group has interests but don´t access of participate in. If the libraries do provide this, that could lead to finding new meeting points where more people could be included and thereby expand the target group of the library.

    Normalitet och avvikelse: Analys av konstruktionen av användare med funktionshinder i fyra Stockholmskommuners biblioteksplaner2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this two years master's thesis, discourse analytic tools have been used in an analysis of the construction ofusers with disability in four Stockhholm-based library plans. The analysis has been aimed at investigating whatimage of people with disabilities that emerge in the texts and how it can be related to the libary plans perceptionof normality. One purpose was to examine to what extent users with disabilities are included as full blown usersin the texts and if not, how they are constructed as a deviation.The theoretical foundation of this thesis is made up by the discourse theories of Laclau and Mouffe withaddition of Michel Foucault's theory of the docile body. By virtue of these theories one of the aims has been touncover the constructionist traits of the library plans exception of disability.The main questions this study seeks to answer are; how are users categorized in the library plans, which usergroups are mentioned and how are users with disabilities portrayed? Furthermore, the essay means to discoverthe most prominent user discourses in the library plans and to investigate how the portrayal of people withdisabilities can be related to the conception of normality and general user discourses.These questions are to be answered firstly by an investigation of user categorization, which is aimed at theconstruction and analysis of user taxonomies and consequences regarding the identity of disability. Secondly,using Laclau and Mouffes discourse theory as a methodological foundation a chain of eqivalense is created toreveal the main characteristics regarding users with disabilities.The analysis also focuses on user discourses, which are grouped into two main areas with themes revolvingaround the individual and the market, and collective groups and culture. Affiliated with the former is a marketorienteddiscourse, containing themes of, among others, the mediation of information and accentuation of ICTservices.In the latter a discourse that revolved around the reading of books emerged. Besides this there was alsoan accentuation of the library as a public room, various participatory activities and cultural experiences. Acomparison between discourse and the image of users with disabilities was undertaken which revealed differentlevels of coherence, resulting in either exclusion or inclusion.

    Machiavelli utmanar Foucault med renässansmålaren Sebastiano del Piombo som vapendragare.2009In: Lambda Nordica: Tidskrift om homosexualitet, ISSN 1100-2573, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 25-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Spring 2008 Sebastiano del Piombo (1485-1547) was dedicated an exhibition in Rome, where he was introduced from Venice by the banker Agostino Chigi in Villa Farnesina 1511. The painting L´uomo in armi (1511-1512) was the poster for the exhibition and most probably a self-portrait. It is similar to the unidentified portrait Testa di giovane by Peruzzi in grisaille in the Villa Farnesina. With a queer perspective it proposes Sebastiano del Piombo as a lover of Agostino Chigi parallell with the young spouse Francesca Ordeaschi portrayed as Dorotea (1511-1512). After the death of Rafael in 1520 Sebastiano del Piombo was considered the most skilful painter in Rome. His many majestic homoerotic portraits with virtù correspond to the results of Guido Ruggiero in Machiavelli in love, sex, self and society in he Italian Renaissance (2007) about sexual identities and selfrepresentation in different consensusrealities. Ruggiero is inspired by Foucault and discusses masculinity rereading private letters by the Florentine politician Niccolò Machiavelli and contemporary literature. The exhibition of Sebastiano del Piombo was esthetically impressive but did not answer questions from a modern visitor. The catalogue is imposing but fatally prim avoiding the sex, self and society in Renaissance Rome and Venice so obvious in the art of Sebastaino del Piombo.

    Portals of beauty

    The county of Hälsingland is well-known for its large, red-painted farms decorated with impressing porches. In Forsa though, there are white doors typical for this parish. They are decorated with ornaments like flowers, fabulous beasts and biblical inscriptions. The aim of this essay is to compare doors created by the carpenters in Forsa Jöns Månsson and Jonas Lust with the portals by the artist Pehr Westman in the parish of Hemsö, Ångermanland, at the beginning of the 19th century. The carpenters are studied in their social, economical, cultural and architectural context. Jöns Månsson and Jonas Lust developed characteristic mixtures of rococo, Swedish Classicism, empire for decoration of doors, portals, interiors, and furniture. They belonged to a social category called outsiders who were not farmers but often farm-hands, tenement soldiers and craftsmen. Their work can be studied as artistic interpretations of the local mentality, its normsystem, style-codex. The portals of Pehr Westman in Hemsö, Ångermanland, are considered as independent works by a self-conscious talented artist who did not follow a local aesthetic system. Westman was a farmer himself, but delivered artistically expressiv Gustavian portals to local farmers, mansions, burghers in nearest town Härnösand, and Stockholm, where he also had his education. Pehr Westman introduced the Swedish Classicism in Ångermanland. His local cultural knowledge and the style of the regional rural architecture facilitated his introducation of a new style. Storsnickare in Norrland were stylists in independent pre-industrial communities aware of new fashion styles, and of the different tastes in other parishes and nearest town. The craftsman who was at the one with the aesthetics of the parishioners and could add some innovation, was the most sought after, in Hälsingland as well as Ångermanland.

    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the photographers Mathilda Ranch (1860-1938) in the town of Varberg in the south of Sweden and Agnes Andersson (1865-1958) in the parish of Alfta in north of Sweden. In their lifetime Sweden was changing into the industrial era introducing new professions beyond gender connotations. Individuals desiring independence found new lifestyles. Ranch and Andersson both lived in their own houses and never married. As photographers they lived in a modern zone where they could reject a compulsory heteronormative partnership. In Varberg, people said that Mathilda Ranch did not like men, due to her inferior social position as an unmarried woman. In Alfta, there was a silence concerning the familylife of Agnes Andersson although her "foster daughter" took over the atelier. Agnes Andersson is an appreciated photographer and parishoner, but as "Mathilda" in Varberg often intimately diminished as "Agnes" and far from fame outside Alfta. Why is Agnes Andersson held back?

    Villa Farnesina och Sodoma: konstvetenskapens heteronormativitet marginaliserad2007In: Lambda Nordica: Tidskrift om homosexualitet, ISSN 1100-2573, Vol. 12, no 3, p. 33-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Villa Farnesina in Trastevere in Rome, built 1506-1511 for the rich banker Agostino Chigi from Siena is a Sienese Renaissance-villa in which noble and harmonious architecture and pictorial decoration fuse into a synthesis. The sober volumetric and spatial articulation of the Villa, devised by the architect, painter and theatrical designer Baldassare Peruzzi from Siena, is a perfect setting for the rich decorative programme of the interior frescoed by great masters as Raphael, Sebastiano del Piombo, Peruzzi himself and Giovanni Antonio Bazzi, known as Sodoma. Villa Farnesina was built as a permanent and representative habitation for Chigi and his young spouse Francesca Ordeaschi whom he married in 1519, framed by frescoes with evident allusions to the glory of the banker, the ancient world, eroticism and love. The bedchamber that was to receive the spouses was the most intimate room in the Villa. Chigi wanted to allude to its function and commissioned the decoration from Bazzi, whose nickname derived from his habits. Beneath a magnificent coffered ceiling with erotic motifs he decorated the walls with a fresco cycle showing the wedding of Alexander the Great and his bride Roxana. The centerpiece of the narrative is the scene of the imminent consummation of the marriage, assisted by two men who are Alexander´s lover and the god of marriage. The decoration programme of Villa Farnesina reveals sexual norms, values and conventions, which can also be seen in the context of Sodoma´s work in Siena, where he married and settled down after leaving his commitment Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican to Raphael. Influenced by Raphael and Michelangelo he successfully introduced la maniera moderna from Rome, including a spectacular personal lifestyle. Sodoma´s work is characterized by a striking sensual homoerotic charisma. In the Sienese frescocycles in Abbazia Monte Oliveto Maggiore, Oratorio di San Bernardino, the church of San Domenico women as well as men are flirting with each other. He had committments in prestigious environments as Palazzo Comunale, the Cathedral, Santa Maria della Scala, palaces and churches all over the republic of Siena. The organization of sexuality in his home-town seem to have given Sodoma a more solid artistic and social reputation than among art historians of the 20th century. Art history is a prim bourgeois discipline, which except for some Renaissance-experts in the 19th century focusing on the Florentine Renaissance has marginalized this Sienese eminent notorious Renaissance-artist. A queer, ethnological and historical reading of Villa Farnesina in Rome and initial impression of the sexual context of Sodoma´s work in the republic of Siena of the 16th century indicates a considerable appreciation of his homoerotic work as well as his personal image. Above all it reveals a flagrant heteronormativity and its mechanisms in the discipline of Art History in the 20th century, marginalized by Sodoma in Villa Farnesina.

    Muntliga, skriftliga och digitala föreställningsvärldar: Sambandet mellan våra redskap och våra föreställningar2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to show that the character of orality and literacy as intellectual and physical tools can beused to understand the myth about information technology. This paper is grounded on the notion that differenttechnological innovations affects our ideas about ourselves, the world and even technology itself. These ideas - ofwhich the myth about information technology is but one - can then be understood by focusing the nature of theintellectual and physical tools that mediates the ideas, and in the process, colors them a certain way.Drawing on the theories of Walter J. Ong, orality is examined primarliy in the context of the South AfricanSan through the verbally transmitted cultural artifact known as "The Song of the Broken String". Orality isargued to encourage a collective personality structure that manifests itself as ideas about humanitys close affinitywith animals.Literacy is examined primarily through the romantic movement and Mary Shelleys Frankenstein. It isargued that the concept of social construction - if defined as an ability to question the individuals relation to thecollective and biological essentialism - is related to two characteristics of literacy as intellectual and physicaltool: Individualized personality structures and the tendency to organize knowledge in an abstract and intellctualsphere, that both influence notions about the physical body and materiality.The established characteristics of orality and literacy then come together in the ongian term secondaryorality - ie. to turn inward and outward simultaneously - as a way to describe the modern digital era. Theconclusion is that the myth about information technology, as expressed in John Perry Barlows "The Declarationof the Independence of Cyberspace", tries to harmonize between the individual and the collective that are inthemselves in part caused by said information technology's ability to enhance individual and collectivepersonality structures at the same time.My method is a literary analysis that deploys ongian terms on above mentioned cultural artefacts.This is a two year master's thesis in the field of library and information science.

    Crossing the Boundaries in Information Science: Perspectives on Interdisciplinarity2013In: ASIS&T 2013 Proceedings of the 76th ASIS&T Annual Meeting Volume 50 2013 Beyond the Cloud: Rethinking Information Boundaries, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information science has often been recognized as an interdisciplinary field. The marriage between librarianship/documentation and computer science was a natural development in the United States in the post-War period (Farkas-Conn, 1991; Hahn & Barlow, 2012), while the development of information science in Europe has largely stayed close to the humanities and the social sciences, in particular, in relation to communication and media (Ibekwe-SanJuan, et al., 2010). For many years, the interdisciplinary nature of information science has been applauded; until recently, we are warned that interdisciplinarinity may be harmful to the identity of the field. Buckland (2012) states that the claim of being "interdisciplinary" is to choose a position of weakness because "in times of economic crisis political power tends to reside in well-established disciplines." Cronin (2012) comments that "the field’s sense of identity, arguably fragile at the best of times, is likely to be further weakened" for its "epistemic promiscuity."

    En kvalitativ analys av den pedagogiska verksamheten på Göteborgs stadsmuseum2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This masters thesis is about the educational activities at Göteborg City museum. It is a qualitative analysis of the new plan for the educational work wich has been written by two of the museum teachers at the museum. The educational work in museums has traditionally been based on tacit knowledge and very little has been written about it. This new plan is one step in a development process to a more structured work in this field at museums. The aim is to discuss the new pedagogic and the new type of museum lesson in comparison with the old method and to discuss if the purposes of the newly developed educational plan reaches its goals.

    The questions at issue are:

    - How do they work with museum education at Göteborg City museum?

    - What has the transition to the new teaching plan meant for the museum teachers´ operation?

    - How do they work to satisfy children’s different condition to absorb knowledge at a museum?

    The empirical materials consists of interviews with two museum teachers, a questionnaire to a teacher who booked a lesson at the museum for her pupils and my one observation of the same lesson.

    The main conclusion is that the educational work is characterized by flexibility and dialogue with the pupils. The so-called new plan is not entirely new, the big difference is that it is written down and more structured. The more dialogue-based lession makes the pupil think critically and more actively seek fore knowledge. Because the method is based on dialogue it is the children them self that set the level at the lession. The museum teachers stimulate the pupils different senses so that the individual pupil has a chance to absorb some knowledge in, regardless of what level of cultural capital it has.

    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.

    Det ambivalenta kulturarvet: Fallet Terror Haza i Budapest2013In: Dragomanen: Årsskrift utgiven av Svenska Forskningsinstitutet i Istanbul, ISSN 1402-358X, Vol. 15, p. 89-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kulturarvet är alltmer framträdande i våra samhällen oavsett om vi befinner oss i det lugna Hälsingland med dess Hälsingegårdar som världsarv, eller i ett krigshärjat Syrien där unika kulturarv förstörs i konflikten. Samtidigt tycks kulturarvet tillhöra allt och alla och skärskådas utifrån olika perspektiv medförande att det blir till något omtvistat där olika värden gör anspråk på platsen och kräver tolkningsföreträde. Kulturarvet och dess begreppsapparat har blivit till något ambivalent, globalt och lokalt i ständig rörelse.  Hand i hand med denna närvaro ifrågasätts kulturarvsbegreppet och är kanske på väg att fasas ut ur kulturdiskursen för att ersättas med kulturmiljö i mångfald. Det finns en utmaning i detta som kulturarvsforskare bör ta sig an för att bemöta med de djupa kunskaper som finns inom fältet. Artikeln diskuterar denna ambivalens och avslutar med en fallstudie av Terror Haza i Budapest.

    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 Paradox with Local Participation in Development-Caused Forced Displacement and Resettlement2009In: Revista Romana de Sociologie, ISSN 1224-9262, Vol. XX, no 1-2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an inquiry into the theoretical and empirical concept of local participation as it used within the field of development-caused forced displacement and resettlement (DFDR). Local participation has repeatedly proved its relevance for mitigating negative impacts caused by DFDR project by involving the people in the process. Paradoxically the people contributing with their very main asset of their culture and livelihood - the land - often end up in chronic poverty despite the use of local participation. It seems that the concept that was developed to protect and support the affected people to overcome poverty at the same time contributes to the undermining of the local culture, which shows signs of “falling-apart from within”. Several questions arise from this: Is it the concept per se that is misleading or misused? Or is it the way the project is constructed, processed and executed with its crucial elements of identified risks and compensations that needs to be reinterpreted and rethought?

    In this article, I will argue, that we have to come to a deeper understanding of what is happening on the ground by focusing on the value domains that are created between the main parties during the negotiations. I see this approach as a way to avoid deadlocks and to avoid viewing the negotiations as an inflexible, hierarchical, one-way relationship between two main parties locked in an asymmetrical power game with no possibility to escape. The Zimapán hydroelectric dam project in Mexico will be used as the ethnographic jumping-off point for discussions.

    Abstract [en]

    Bakom de enkla kategorier som man normalt tillskriver Turkiet, t ex sekulariserad muslimsk stat, döljer sig ett mångfasetterat panorama. Att Turkiet är ett mångfasetterat och ambivalent land, med oräkneliga verkliga och imaginära gränser blir tidigt klart för besökaren. Man möts av en multivokalitet som ljuder tydligt och klart. Detta land, med sin kulturella rikedom och sin socio-politiska och ekonomiska komplexitet söker nu inträde i EU. I uppsatsen diskuteras nyckelbegrepp som "tillit" och argumentet som framförs är att Turkiet har en självklar plats i Europa och EU.

    Heritage as Life-values: A Critical Investigation of the Cultural Heritage Concept2016In: Current Science, ISSN 1 Vol 110(11):2091-2098., Vol. 110, no 1, p. 2091-2098Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For a long time now, the world has been facing a heritage stampede with an array of stakeholders – nations, global heritage organizations, NGOs, terrorists and ordinary people – all claiming their rights to heritage and the past. Hence, there is a great need to understand what heritage does, or what we do with heritage in an everyday context. This article aims to contribute to the discussion through investigation of the heritage concept from a theoretical and analytical perspective, starting from a Swedish and European view on heritage; how it came into being, established itself and developed, and finally found itself called into question and at risk of being discarded. Our argument is that the present heritage concept would benefit from the introduction of the concept of life-values, not in order to replace it, but to enrich and take heritage into the 21st century. The article is based on field workd in Albania.

    Det bekönade museet: Genusperspektiv i museologi och museiverksamhet2005Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Vad finns i museets dolda vrår, på vindar och i magasin? Och vad avslöjar samlingarna om olika epokers insamlingspraxis och ideologier? Vilka normer och värderingar blottläggs? Sådana frågor diskuteras i denna antologi med genusperspektiv som en självklar utgångspunkt. Museiarbetets teori och praktik, kulturella produktion och institutionella ramverk granskas med könsmedveten blick. I fokus för diskussionen står museernas olika verksamheter: utställningar, förvärv, samlingar, organisation och museipedagogik. Här finns artiklar av mer teoretisk karaktär liksom texter som förmedlar en personlig erfarenhet av museivärlden.

    Det bekönade museet är en introduktion till området museer och genus.

    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.
