    ”I NO skriver man bara så man förstår.” Men hur skriver man, och hur förstår man? Expansioner och textrörlighet i elevtexter.2007Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att lära sig ett nytt ämnesområde innebär även att lära sig det språk som används inom det området. Tidigare forskning visar att det är nödvändigt att lära sig att skriva inom till exempel de olika naturvetenskapliga genrerna för att bli en kompetent elev inom detta område (se t ex Halliday & Martin 1993, Wignell, 1998).

     

    I denna presentation vill jag närmare diskutera expansioner i texter skrivna av elever i skolår 5 och 8 i NO och SO-ämnena. Genom expansioner byggs semantiska relationer mellan händelser genom satser som definierar (’alltså’, ’med andra ord’), bygger ut (’och’, ’men’) eller specificerar (’sen’, ’för att’) den inledande satsen (Halliday & Matthiessen 2004).  Expansioner har diskuterats som en viktig del av den vetenskapliga diskursen, både i sig själva och även som ett uttryck för elevernas förståelse av vad de skriver (Keys 1999). I presentationen diskuterar jag graden av expansioner i texterna i relation till hur eleverna talar om sina texter, deras textrörlighet. Det visar sig bland annat att framför allt högpresterande elever har en högre textrörlighet i de texter som även har en högre grad av expansioner.

    Abstract [sv]

    I kapitlet diskuteras en undersökning om elevers skrivande i naturorienterande ämnen, hur texterna ser ut och hur eleverna talar om de texter de skrivit. Resultaten diskuteras i relation till sådant som ämnesspråk och förståelse.

    Specificering, utveckling eller bara en massa tillägg? Om expansionsrelationer i PIRLS-provetsinformativa texter2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att uttrycka exempelvis kausalitet, hänvisningar till tid och plats, exemplifieringar eller motsatsförhållanden är något som ofta diskuteras som centralt för en ”lyckad” text. Det visar sig dock att elever gör detta i varierande grad, och att graden av sammanhang i texterna i hög grad varierar med textaktiviteten (af Geijerstam, 2006). Det är också relevant att undersöka hur relationer av detta slag uttrycks i texter elever möter i test. I denna presentation fokuseras de informativa texter som ingår i läsförståelseprovet PIRLS 2006.

    Expansionsrelationer som uttrycks i texten samt vilka funktionella relationer som finns mellan satser diskuteras. Analysen av sammanhang i texten utgår från Hallidays system för satskoppling (Halliday 2004), och kompletteras med analys av de funktionella relationerna mellan enheterna (Mann & Thompson 1988, Evensen 2005).

    What to Wear: The Moral Ramifications of Sartorial Practices in Early Modern Sweden2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    “In the beginning”, states the author of an essay that was submitted to the Royal Patriotic Society in Stockholm in 1773, “clothes were used for two reasons: to cover the body, and to keep the body from cold and heat”. With time, “and the propagation of mankind”, a third reason was added: “to ornate the body” according to needs, means and function. Some “performed rougher and heavier work”, others had less heavy, less rough work, and others still “were set to advise and rule” the rest. All was well. But as societies continued to grow, “Amor Sclereratus habendi” – the accursed love of possessing – took hold of mankind, and an additional two, previously unknown, reasons for the use of clothes came into being: “Pride and Self-Indulgence”. Everything changed; everything once “natural” was perverted by the omnipresent desire for “all things foreign”, for “more”, for “tastier”, for “grander”.

    The tone is righteous, the address is condemnatory, and the rhetoric is almost Biblical, with a familiar narrative of a Genesis, an original Sin, and a Fall. The author provides a condensed outline of the sartorial practices: the basic instrumentality of dress (to cover and keep warm), but also the social aspects with the interaction between social creatures, presenting themselves and making claims through decorations, and the resulting complexity and conflicts between the regulating norms and the communicative practices at play, with people making claims and forming the self through consumption and sartorial practices.

    The essay was one of 70 of its kind submitted in response to the question on the “advantages and disadvantages” of a national dress posed by the Royal Patriotic Society earlier that year, inviting the public to submit their replies, promising a gold medal of 30 ducats’ weight to the winner. Departing from these essays, and the rather unique insights into early modern sartorial practices that they provide, my paper focuses on the views of “correctness” and “incorrectness” in sartorial matters, and – more specifically – the different “morals” in play, structuring and governing the sartorial proposals in the essays, such as economic morals (state finances, domestic production), social morals (to dress according to station, and the fear of social confusion), religious morals (with the divine scheme, and godly versus ungodly behaviour), and national morals (with a Swedish way of things, contrasted to foreign models).

    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.

    Why world cultural heritage?: Democracy, local participation and knowledge production in the world culture nomination of Farms in Hälsingland, Sweden2009In: The 16th International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES), Kunming, China, 27 - 31 July, 2009.

    Abstract [en]

    Around the world there is a rush in nominating tangible and intangible sites for UNESCO’s World Culture Heritage List. The requirements for nomination are that the sites have "universal value for mankind", that they are unique and authentic, and there is a need to secure the sites’ sustainable development by opening them up for the tourist industry. Sweden has a total of fourteen natural and cultural heritage sites on the list, one of which is a natural site, twelve are cultural sites, and one is a mixed site. It was anticipated that the large timbered red-painted farmhouses of Hälsingland in the north of Sweden would be listed in June 2009. ICOMOS, however, came to another conclusion and deferred the nomination.

    The nomination process has lasted for over ten years and has been a painstaking process involving the local communities and the county administration board in the county town of Gävle. The local people are partly thrilled, because they assume that there is money to earn when they open up their homes for tourists; an income that for some is badly needed because of the deterioration of the buildings due to the high costs of renovation. But some are openly critical to the entire enterprise, which is seen as a status project for some politicians and threat to the landscape by disturbing the harmony between the built environment, people and the natural landscape. In a cultural heritage nomination process, a complicated interaction arises between expert knowledge and local knowledge, which generates insights that are crucial to capture and dress in words to be able to formulate a successful world heritage proposal and not the least to make it operational.

    Why World Culture Heritage? Democracy, local participation and knowledge production in the world culture nomination of Farms in Halsingland, Sweden2011In: Indigenous Knowledge and Sustainable Development / [ed] Dorothy Billings, Viatcheslav Rudnev, Beijing, China: The Intellectual House , 2011, p. 21-33Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes the nomination process of the Swedish heritage site Farms and Villages in Hiilsingland (2007) for UNESCO's World Heritage List. It was anticipated that the large timbered red-painted farmhouses of Halsingland in the north of Sweden would be listed in June 2009, but ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites) came to another conclusion,  deferred  the  nomination  and  returned  it  to  the  Swedish  authorities  for improvements.

    The  nomination  process  lasted  for  over  10  years  and  has  been  a  painstaking  process involving the local communities and the county administration board in the county town of Gavle. The costs were estimated to be 15 million Swedish Crowns (1.6 million EURO) which did not trickle down to the owners of the farmhouses. The local people were nonetheless thrilled because they assumed that a nomination would benefit them economically, especially if they were prepared to join the tourist circus and make their homes accessible for visitors. The extra income was badly needed since the restoration costs for these large houses in most cases can only with difficulties be carried by the individual house owner. But some were openly critical to the entire enterprise and they saw it as a status project for some politicians and a threat to the perceived harmony between the traditionally built environment and the landscape. A nomination would cause a disruption between old and new ways of living instead of continuity. In a cultural heritage nomination process a complicated interaction arises between expert knowledge and local knowledge, which generates insights that need to be formulated in the final product. Cultural sensitivity and local participation must be pillars in such a project to make it sustainable.

    Heritage: A Conceptual Paper Toward a Theory of Cultural Heritage in Humanitarian Action2009In: Papers World Conference Humanitarian Studies (WCHS), Groningen: University of Groningen , 2009, p. 1-19Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This conceptual paper deals with definitions of and approaches to cultural and natural heritage and discusses functions of heritage and culture as elements of sustainable peace-building. The paper assumes the necessity of a longer-term strategic thinking. A fundamental question occupying heritage research is why some parts of the human Lebensraum are singled out and marked as a cultural heritage and why this need for preserving, protecting and capturing in time and space is escalating globally. Some researchers argue that this is a consequence of that we seem to be living in a fragmented, post, post-modern society where no coherent story is told and people and places are regarded as texts and isolated narratives open for interpretations and re-interpretations. Some others argue that the Drang for heritage is based on economic interests and connected to the booming tourist industry, while others refer to the politicizing of place.

    The conceptual discussion will be exemplified with the ethnographic case of The Museum of Terror/ Terror Haza in Budapest in order to show the complexity of heritage as elements of reconciliation and transition.

    On knowledge production and local participation2007In: NOHA – ECHO Presidency: Seminar on Changing Scope of Humanitarian Action. Lisbon, Portugal 9-12 October 2007, 2007, p. 1-16Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Local participation, beneficiary participation, informed participation, or, folkligt deltagande (peoples’ participation [Swe.] ), are concepts that are highly used and appreciated in development projects as well as in the field of humanitarian action. In the present introductory paper, I will discuss this concept and refer to it as “local participation” or only “participation” for the sake of convenience, although I am very much aware of the refinement of the concept expressed in the different forms of the word as mentioned above. I am not questioning the concept per se, and I will not dwell on the meaning of it. Instead, I am concerned with the outcomes of local participation, that is the knowledge produced and I would like to take this knowledge and merge into a universal (global) knowledge production, with the purpose of getting a way from the associated locality of the concept, which makes it both vulnerable and at the same time powerful.

    Participation in involuntary resettlement: a study of local bargaining2003In: IUAES. International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences. XV ICAES 2K3Hu: Humankind/Nature Interaction: Past, Present, and Future. Florence, Italy, July 5th-12th 2003. Abstract Book Vol II., 2003, p. 1-31Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I argue that the experience from the Zimapán resettlement project shows that in its present form local participation cannot reconcile the contradictions between negotiation, participation and the fait accompli decision to build a dam. It is necessary to consider both the implementing party and the local people, and to study the dynamic social relations, the in-between-space, created between the parties during the implementation phase.

    In search for a common ground in the encounter between technical expertise andindigenous knowledge2009In: Papers World Conference Humanitarian Studies (WCHS), Groningen: University of Groningen , 2009, p. 1-17Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In spite of repeated efforts of conciliation, the relation between expert and indigenous knowledge remains a deeply ambivalent arena. This ambivalence puts obstacles to a crucial factor in Humanitarian Action - the effective alliances between these as perceived as two different cognitive forms. Coordinated programs should of course proceed from a fundament of established mutual trust, a precondition that often gets bogged down in a muddled discourse on issues such as inspiration from original conservationists, respect of natural harmonies, the precedence of instrumental precision before traditional approximations, not to mention mystifications and delusions.
