    Vg 199 Norra Lundby. Ett förslag till tolkning2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats presenteras ett förslag till läsning och tolkning av den vikingatida steninskriften Vg 199, för vilken ingen tolkning tidigare framlagts. Tolkningen lyder: [Stæinn] kveðsk hær[sa] sȳ[n]a længi. Kveðsk Hialms Gunna Halfd[anaR brōdur/faður langa hr]īd geta. Gott orð bar. Detta översätts som: ’Stenen förkunnar att den länge ska synliggöra hövdingen. Den förkunnar att den en lång tid ska omtala Hjälms Gunne, Halvdans bror/far. Han hade ett gott rykte.’ På grund av att en del av stenen saknas och att många av runorna bär spår av omfattande vittring är mycket av läsningen osäker, vilket innebär att tolkningen på en del punkter är en aning spekulativ. Det står dock klart att inskriften till sitt innehåll tydligt avviker från övriga västgötska runinskrifter från samma tid. Inskriften är dessutom troligen formulerad på vers. Förekomsten av ordet kveðsk pekar på ett tydligt samband med jylländska DR 131, där samma ord förekommer i en liknande kontext. Inskriften i Vg 199 tycks sakna den normalt sett obligatoriska minnes-/resarformeln, vilket skulle kunna tyda på att den ursprungligen har varit del av ett parmonument.

    I uppsatsen redogörs också för hur stenen är utformad och ett förslag ges till hur den ursprungligen kan ha sett ut. Härtill görs några anmärkningar angående hur inskriftens uppläggning tycks interagera med det språkliga innehållet samt med indelningen i syntaktiska meningar. På det språkliga planet kan konstateras att förekomsten av verbformen kveðsk visar att suffixet -sk används för att uttrycka mediopassiv, vilket annars är relativt ovanligt i svenska runinskrifter. Dessutom visar formuleringen Gott orð bar, vilken saknar parallell i runtextmaterialet i övrigt, att ’ord’ (eventuellt i betydelsen ’rykte’) var något som kunde ’bäras’. Detta kan möjligen ha varit ett mer allmänt känt uttryck under runsvensk tid. Vidare tyder parallelliteten mellan Vg 199 och DR 131 på ett nära kulturellt samband mellan Västergötland och (i synnerhet norra) Jylland under vikingatiden, något som också tidigare studier har visat.

    Four millennia of Iberian biomolecular prehistory illustrate the impact of prehistoric migrations at the far end of Eurasia2018In: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, ISSN 0027-8424, E-ISSN 1091-6490, Vol. 115, no 13, p. 3428-3433Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Population genomic studies of ancient human remains have shown how modern-day European population structure has been shaped by a number of prehistoric migrations. The Neolithization of Europe has been associated with large-scale migrations from Anatolia, which was followed by migrations of herders from the Pontic steppe at the onset of the Bronze Age. Southwestern Europe was one of the last parts of the continent reached by these migrations, and modern-day populations from this region show intriguing similarities to the initial Neolithic migrants. Partly due to climatic conditions that are unfavorable for DNA preservation, regional studies on the Mediterranean remain challenging. Here, we present genome-wide sequence data from 13 individuals combined with stable isotope analysis from the north and south of Iberia covering a four-millennial temporal transect (7,500-3,500 BP). Early Iberian farmers and Early Central European farmers exhibit significant genetic differences, suggesting two independent fronts of the Neolithic expansion. The first Neolithic migrants that arrived in Iberia had low levels of genetic diversity, potentially reflecting a small number of individuals; this diversity gradually increased over time from mixing with local hunter-gatherers and potential population expansion. The impact of post-Neolithic migrations on Iberia was much smaller than for the rest of the continent, showing little external influence from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age. Paleodietary reconstruction shows that these populations have a remarkable degree of dietary homogeneity across space and time, suggesting a strong reliance on terrestrial food resources despite changing culture and genetic make-up.

    A Corpus-Based Study on the Degrees of Lexicalization and Grammaticalization of Finnish Converbs2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study attempts to define the degrees of lexicalization and grammaticalization of the Finnish converbs ending in ­Ten, ­TUA, ­TessA, ­TAkse­, ­mAllA and -mAttA. The study is based on a corpus of Finnish newspaper texts from the 1990s. The approach is fundamentally functional-typological and cognitive. The productive use of the six Finnish converbs is compared to their lexicalized and grammaticalized instances and to some less prototypical non-finite adverbial verb constructions. In this study lexicalization is seen as a process from transparent and productive, to opaque and unproductive. It also stands for the lexical strength of an item, i.e. how often an item or a co-occurrence of items is repeated in discourse. Grammaticalization, in contrast, is seen as a process from less grammatical to more grammatical. The more grammaticalized an item is, the more it resembles the most prototypical items in the target category. The types of lexicalized converb forms that this study focuses on are adverbs (e.g. yllättäen ‘suddenly, unexpectedly’) and phrasal adverbs (e.g. juurta jaksain ‘thoroughly, root and branch’); the types of grammaticalized converbs analyzed are adpositions (e.g. huolimatta ‘despite, notwithstanding’), conjunctions (e.g. olettaen että ‘supposing’) and sentence adverb markers (e.g. sanoen ‘saying’ in rehellisesti sanoen ‘frankly’). A three-way model is suggested to the degrees of lexicalization on the one hand, and the degrees of grammaticalization on the other. When determining the degrees of lexicalization and grammaticalization of individual items, their syntax, form, semantics and frequency are taken into consideration. The analysis consists of determining the weight of these criteria in each individual instance, exemplifying the productive and lexicalized/grammaticalized uses of the converb forms from the corpus, and providing frequency data on the various uses in the chosen corpus material.

    Students’ perceptions of deductive and inductive methods in teaching reading skills2015In: Language Learning in Higher Education, ISSN 2191-6128, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 181-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores students’ perceptions of inductive and deductive methods of teaching reading in Finnish and Hungarian in a higher education setting. A guided inductive discovery method of reading involves independent work and minimum vocabulary and grammar explanation before the reading assignment is given. A deductive pre-taught method involves grammar, vocabulary and content explanation before a text is read. Structured focus group interviews revealed that the advantages of the discovery method, i.e. guided inductive reading, are that it helps to maintain curiosity, enhances memorisation, encourages independent and active learning, and prepares for real-life reading situations. The deductive pre-taught method, on the other hand, feels safe and helpful, can keep one’s confidence up, saves time and effort for other language-learning tasks, and ensures a correct understanding of the text. The interviewees wanted to be given information about which grammar to expect in advance, some felt the same way about vocabulary. They were not always aware of the difference between the two approaches. By using both methods the teacher can help to maintain motivation and cater for different student preferences. Mixing methods also reflects how we treat information in real life. There appears to be no ideal method in teaching L2 reading: both methods have their advantages and disadvantages from the students’ point of view. Explicit instruction is crucial for reading development either before or after a text is read.

    The past, present and future of the Pite Saami language: Sociological factors and revitalization efforts2011In: Nordic Journal of Linguistics, ISSN 0332-5865, E-ISSN 1502-4717, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 295-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our paper is a report on the past, current and future state of the endangered Pite Saami language (aka: Arjeplog Saami) spoken in Swedish Lapland. Our primary data come from interviews with Pite Saami individuals and our field observations. We estimate the vitality of Pite Saami based on the UNESCO Language Vitality Scale, taking into consideration factors such as the number of speakers, language attitudes and the quality of documentation. We also discuss the possible reasons for the decline of Pite Saami, report on the speakers' views of other Saami languages and Swedish, consider whether there is a specific Pite Saami identity, describe revitalization efforts already taking place, and discuss the future prospects of the language.

    Mötesplatsen och diskursordningen. En diskursanalytisk litteraturstudie av folkbibliotekets funktion sommötesplats2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This masters thesis aims to explore the public library’s function as a meeting place. By using discourse analysis as the main theoretical tool the study sets out to analyze the ideas and presumptions on which the notion of the public library as a meeting place is founded. More specifically I have used the so called “integrated perspective” formulated by Marianne Winther Jørgensen and Louise Phillips. The investigation forms itself around the concept of a discourse order, which constitute the theoretical framework for the study. Through close reading of the academic literature the aim is to problematize as well as discuss the public library’s function and role as a meeting place in contemporary and future society. With starting point in library and information scientific literature the goal is to lay bare the specific expressions that together form the basis of this investigation.

    The study shows that, in agreement with the theoretical framework, it is fair to talk about a well formed discourse order called ”the public library as a meeting place”. Within this greater order it is further possible to find, at least, five subordinated discourses that each one of them points out certain aspects of the public library's function as a meeting place. Although the discourses clearly can be said to speak for themselves, the study shows no great signs of conflict between the discourses. The discourse order is thus characterized by its homogeneity. The study also shows that the concepts of third place and social capital are fruitful partners in the discussion. A description of the public library cannot, however, be restricted to the characterization of a third place. The relation between the public library and the notion of third place has also shown to be weak at times. The conclusion is that the public library is something more or different than a third place. Links has also been made between the public library and the concept of social capital, both lingual and conceptual.

    Att skapa en motkultur: En religionspsykologisk undersökning av Livets Ord som religiös minoritet i en sekulär kulturell kontext2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this textual analysis I have examined the book Att följa Jesus by Ulf Ekman and information from Word of Life's official website. The aim of this study is to see how a religious leader is shaping the identity of the groups members after a certain pattern that differs from the surrounding, secular society. The research focus  of this essay includes several aspects:  how a culture is formed in a religious minority in contrast to the prevailing cultural context; how the material can be explained by Paul Pruyser’s theory on the psychological worlds; how what Ulf Ekman writes about distinguishing themselves from the environment differs from how other religious minority groups distinguish their identity;  and,  how the psychological world, expected behavior, and context of Word of Life can be structured by Valerie DeMarinis’ model of assessment. I have placed Word of Life in a realistic illusionistic world developed from Paul Pruyser’s theory of psychological worlds. I have also used Valerie DeMarinis’ orientation model for meaning making systems for placing Word of Life in its cultural context. The investigation revealed that the group is a religious minority in Sweden. After this, I compared Word of Life with other religious minority groups. I chose to focus on Jewish identity in the American South and in Copenhagen, which showed that the individuals who were interviewed who felt that their Jewish  identities were under attack became defensive. Ekman, however, ordered his members to be inclusive but theologically conservative and to seek a counterculture existence. I placed the steps of ‘belonging’  into DeMarinis’ assessment model, which showed how the psychological world is leading up to the achievement of the expected behavior, and how the surrounding cultural context affects the model.

    Det autentiska Andra: Om etnografi, etik och existens2002Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The point of departure for the dissertation is the problem of representing other people and other cultures from a modern scientific and ethnographic standpoint. This concerns, above all, a problem based on a power relationship, on various forms of subordination and marginalization of the Other(s), who are contrasted with normality and a modern "us". This leads to what I call the question of the Other, that is, how it might be possible for a researcher to talk beyond prevailing power relations, to talk about what exists outside the scholarly representations. It is thus ultimately an ethical and existential question; that is to say, a question of an Other which cannot merely be boiled down to knowledge, but which nevertheless can carry meaning, as a matter of relating to another person, not as an object of knowledge, but in a way that allows that person to speak and to be on his or her own premises. This leads, then, to the main aim of this dissertation, namely to analyse how scholars have related in various ways to this Other in ethnographic descriptions, neutralizing it or emphasizing it. The examples I have used in my examinations consist of a series of ethnographic texts describing one and the same field, Norrland, northern part of Sweden. The material primarily consists of texts describing different, supposedly non-modern conditions and may therefore be said to exemplify the general relationship between the modern and this Other.

    As a whole, then, I have tried to focus on the modern and the non-modern, thereby trying to find out how these approaches relate to each other, and particularly to bring out ambivalent and contradictory features. The emphasis is thus, on the one hand, on how scholars have distinguished, separated, and subordinated the Other, and on the other hand, on the deviations, the resistance and the inertia, on the cracks and the critical points where the modern and discursive give way to something else. The result of this is not that I have found new facts or any real new knowledge; what I have found is a different perspective on the existing descriptions of the field. It has thus been a matter of arriving at ethical insights rather than any definite result. As I have tried to show, the "free", modern approach virtually always leads to some form of denial or ignoring of the Other, that is, the removal of people from the domain of ethical and existential consideration. In my opinion, the ethical and dialogic points of departure presupposes, on the contrary, involvement and participation, which in practice turns out to counteract the modern premises and offers an opportunity to acknowledge the Other, by letting individuals appear outside their given categories. Finally, I want to ask to what extent it is at all possible to envisage an inverted agenda in ethnology and scholarship as a whole, with the ethical and dialogic standpoint as the primary starting point instead of the other way around.

    Att ifrågasätta och lämna Jehovas vittnen: effekter på självskattad existentiell och psykisk hälsa samt livskvalité2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate, from a religious psychology perspective, which self-rated effects an initiated questioning of and exit from the religious organization Jehovah´s Witnesses can have on a person´s self-rated existential and mental health and quality of life. The phenomenon was investigated with help of Park´s theory on meaning-making and Melder´s theory about the existential health dimensions impact on and relation to the overall self-rated existential and mental health a person experiences. Parks theory was primarily used to investigate the process of exit. The method used to investigate the phenomenon was qualitative directed content analysis and hermeneutic interpretation. This means that I with help of the theories used in the study, and based on the themes and categories taken from them, analysed the material to see whether aspects and parts in the theories could be used to achieve a deeper understanding of the phenomenon. In Melder´s theory I searched for aspects and parts in the material that could be understood and explained by some or several of the eight existential aspects that according to the theory effects the overall self-rated health a person experience. The results of the study shows that the questioning of and exit from Jehovah´s Witnesses could be well explained by Park´s theory on meaning-making. It also showed that some of the eight existential aspects in Melder´s theory were possible to applicate on the material to achieve a deeper understanding of how this questioning of and exit from Jehovah´s Witnesses effected the person´s self-rated existential and mental health and quality of life.

    Vi bør bli flinkere til å si ”hva?”: Om internordisk kommunikation mellan nordiskt engagerade ungdomar2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Att nordbor enkelt kan kommunicera på sina modersmål är grunden i den nordiska språkgemenskapen. Idag är det endast de skandinaviska språken – danska, norska och svenska – som är mellanförståeliga och tanken är att hela Norden ska kunna kommunicera med dem som bas. Forskning visar dock att den internordiska språkförståelsen har försämrats hos nordiska ungdomar. Syftet med denna uppsats är att studera hur internordisk kommunikation mellan ungdomar som engagerar sig nordiskt fungerar och jämföra resultatet med tidigare forskning om hur internordisk kommunikation fungerar mellan ungdomar allmänt.

    För att undersöka detta har en enkätundersökning och ett antal fokusgruppintervjuer genomförts på tre olika ungdomsevenemang. Sammanlagt har 103 ungdomar från alla de nordiska länderna samt självstyrande områdena svarat på enkäten. Tolv ungdomar deltog också i fokusgrupperna.

    Undersökningens resultat visar att de nordiskt engagerade ungdomarna har en väldigt positiv bild av den internordiska kommunikationen och hur den fungerar på nordiska möten. Bäst gick det för norrmännen att kommunicera med andra nordbor och färingarna visade också bra resultat vad det gäller förståelse av alla de andra språken. Islänningarna hade störst språkliga problem, tätt följda av grönlänningarna. Övergripande är ungdomarna positivt inställda till den nordiska språkgemenskapen och de tycker det är viktigt att vi bevarar den. De använder sig av engelska i internordisk kommunikation när det behövs men ser det mer som ett hjälpspråk än ett huvudspråk. De vill bevara den nordiska kulturen genom att bevara de nordiska språken.

    När studiens resultat jämförs med tidigare forskning om kommunikation vid nordiska möten visar det sig att de nordiskt engagerade ungdomarna tycker att den internordiska kommunikationen är lättare än vad forskning visar att nordiska ungdomar tycker allmänt. De nordiskt engagerade ungdomarna tycker att det är lika lätt att förstå varandra som informanter i alla åldrar som deltog i en liknande undersökning för 25 år sedan.

    Transgender and genderqueer experiences of avatar creation in games2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this thesis is to examine how respondents who self identify as transgender or genderqueer experience avatar creation systems in digital games. In the wake of GamerGate, gender has become a more prevalent topic of discussion, as such, this thesis seeks to survey transgender and genderqueer people in order to gain a better insight into their their experiences with avatar creation in games, and do they perceive the status quo of current avatar creation systems to be in need of change? If so, how? The results of the survey shows that the respondents use avatar creation systems as a means to experiment in a safe environment with aspects of their identity expression, and to improve avatar creation systems, more options need to be added for diverse body types and non-binary identities.

    On the Wrong Side of History: The Dutch Apology to Indonesia for the Crimes of the War of Decolonization in Dutch Newspapers and Collective Memory2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1990s, it has become almost common practice for Western states to apologizefor the injustice they committed against other states or nations. This thesis investigatesthe debate surrounding such a political apology: the (possible) apology from theNetherlands to Indonesia for the crimes committed during the war of decolonization(1945–49). It examines whether Dutch national newspapers portrayed the apology, orthe possibility thereof, positively, negatively, neutrally or both positively andnegatively in the period between 1995 and 2013. Moreover, it examines whicharguments were used to support these evaluations. Using theories on political apologies,collective memory and the media’s relationship with the public, the findings from thenewspaper analysis are linked to the Dutch collective memory of the war ofdecolonization. The findings show that the examined newspapers changed theirevaluation of the (possible) apology from a negative to a positive one between 2005and 2011. Next, it was found that Indies-veterans and the violence perpetrated by theIndonesian side played important parts in the debate in all studied years. It is arguedthat the Dutch remembrance of the Indonesian war of decolonization switched from anunapologetic remembrance in 1995 and 2005 to an apologetic remembrance in 2011and 2013, indicating a re-appraisal of Dutch history within the public debate.

    Toward an Integrated History to Guide the Future2011In: Ecology & society, ISSN 1708-3087, E-ISSN 1708-3087, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 2-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many contemporary societal challenges manifest themselves in the domain of human-environment interactions. There is a growing recognition that responses to these challenges formulated within current disciplinary boundaries, in isolation from their wider contexts, cannot adequately address them. Here, we outline the need for an integrated, transdisciplinary synthesis that allows for a holistic approach, and, above all, a much longer time perspective. We outline both the need for and the fundamental characteristics of what we call "integrated history." This approach promises to yield new understandings of the relationship between the past, present, and possible futures of our integrated human-environment system. We recommend a unique new focus of our historical efforts on the future, rather than the past, concentrated on learning about future possibilities from history. A growing worldwide community of transdisciplinary scholars is forming around building this Integrated History and future of People on Earth (IHOPE). Building integrated models of past human societies and their interactions with their environments yields new insights into those interactions and can help to create a more sustainable and desirable future. The activity has become a major focus within the global change community.

    Är omfördelning av resurser legitimt?: En diskussion mellan John Rawls och Robert Nozicks motstridiga rättviseprinciper2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I examine if a high tax is legitimate from a political-philosophical perspective in which principles of justice are central. This essay is based upon the philosophers John Rawls´ and Robert Nozick´s opposite views on the legitimacy of tax. On the one side, Rawls is for taxes and suggests a social liberal and equal welfare state. On the other side, Nozick is against taxes and suggests a libertarian state that protects human liberty. The purpose of the study is to investigate if Nozick's criticism against Rawls´s principle of distributive justice is valid. Moreover I will also study if high taxes can be legitimate from an united view that takes consideration of both equality and liberty, or if one must be chosen of the cost of the other. I will achieve this aim by making a normative argument analysis of the validity of the premises and whether the conclusion really follows from the premises. However before doing this, first I must describe central concepts that will be used in the analysis and both philosophers' respective positions. Secondly, I have reconstructed Rawls´and Nozick´s central arguments, to provide greater clarifications of the reasons behind a statement, in which my intention is to highlight implicit reasons. My conclusion is that Nozick has misinterpreted Rawls theory of justice, and that Nozick´s third principle in his entitlement theory even can support Rawls´ standpoint to legitimatehigh taxes. Moreover Rawls principle of distributive justice better correlates to both equality and freedom, hence is a stronger principle. More precisely my main finding is that Rawls's principle of justice corrects for negative externalities, in which the poorest suffers unjustly from a market failure in term of not having fair chances of achieving employment and higher positions, that is not their own fault if they cannot afford the education required on the labour market. Hence the state´s corrective measures that aims to compensate for unequal opportunities at the labor market, which is redistributive taxes, are legitimately approved.

    A weak scientific basis for gaming disorder: Let us err on the side of caution2018In: Journal of Behavioral Addictions, ISSN 2062-5871, E-ISSN 2063-5303, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 1-9Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We greatly appreciate the care and thought that is evident in the 10 commentaries that discuss our debate paper, the majority of which argued in favor of a formalized ICD-11 gaming disorder. We agree that there are some people whose play of video games is related to life problems. We believe that understanding this population and the nature and severity of the problems they experience should be a focus area for future research. However, moving from research construct to formal disorder requires a much stronger evidence base than we currently have. The burden of evidence and the clinical utility should be extremely high, because there is a genuine risk of abuse of diagnoses. We provide suggestions about the level of evidence that might be required: transparent and preregistered studies, a better demarcation of the subject area that includes a rationale for focusing on gaming particularly versus a more general behavioral addictions concept, the exploration of non-addiction approaches, and the unbiased exploration of clinical approaches that treat potentially underlying issues, such as depressive mood or social anxiety first. We acknowledge there could be benefits to formalizing gaming disorder, many of which were highlighted by colleagues in their commentaries, but we think they do not yet outweigh the wider societal and public health risks involved. Given the gravity of diagnostic classification and its wider societal impact, we urge our colleagues at the WHO to err on the side of caution for now and postpone the formalization.

    Counterpoint and Partimento: Methods of Teaching Composition in Late Eighteenth-Century Naples2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the second half of the eighteenth century, the city of Naples had three music conservatories: the Conservatorio di Santa Maria di Onofrio, the Conservatorio di Santa Maria di Loreto, and the Conservatorio di Santa Maria della Pietà de’ Turchini. Through disciplines such as solfeggio, partimento, and counterpoint, the students at these institutions received highly professional training in singing, instrumental playing, and composition.

    This study reveals new evidence that partimenti were used not only as exercises in keyboard playing, but also as exercises in written counterpoint. As counterpoint exercises, partimenti were used either as bass lines over which students wrote one or several contrapuntal parts, or as notational devices that facilitated the sketching of fugues.

    Musicologists have previously encountered considerable difficulties in identifying and describing differences between the schools of Leonardo Leo and Francesco Durante, represented by the terms Leisti and Durantisti. This study shows that these schools are primarily defined through different methods of teaching counterpoint. Contemporary counterpoint notebooks show that the maestri at Sant’Onofrio and Santa Maria di Loreto followed Durante’s teaching methods, while the maestri at La Pietà followed Leo’s teaching methods. The school of Durante emphasized the writing of melodic lines over a hexachordal scale or a partimento bass, using different methods, such as the moti del basso and prescribed conditions. The school of Leo favored the use of invertible counterpoint, emphasizing skills in sketching and writing choral fugues from subjects and countersubjects.

    For the first time, the partimento and solfeggio repertoire used at the Neapolitan conservatories has been systematically investigated through the creation of two research tools, the databases UUPart: The Uppsala Partimento Database and UUSolf: The Uppsala Solfeggio Database, published online on two companion websites.

    Improvised and Written Canons in Eighteenth-Century Neapolitan Conservatories2018In: Vol. 10, p. 133-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to the current understanding of the curriculum at the Neapolitan conservatories, students were taught composition primariy through partimentp-playing and through written studies in counterpoint. However, singing instruction was equally fundamental as keyboard playing. In this essay I highlight the importance of sung canoni (or canon solfeggi) in the lessons of Nicola Sala (1713–1801), at the Conservatorio della Pietà de' Turchini. With such improvised canons, students were systematically prepared for composing written counterpoint, including the final stretto of the fugue, in which canon technique was applied.

    The 189 Partimenti of Nicola Sala: Complete Edition with Critical Commentary. Volume 1. Nos. 1-1002017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This edition presents the complete partimenti of Maestro Nicola Sala (1713–1801), composer and teacher of counterpoint at the Conservatorio della Pietà de’ Turchini in Naples. The initial impulse to create this edition arose after I encountered Sala’s partimenti in Alexandre-Étienne Choron’s three volume treatise Principes de Composition des Écoles d’Italie (1808–09). The pedagogical sophistication of Sala’s keyboard exercises in the first volume of Choron’s Principes immediately caught my interest: the exercises invite the student to hone their skills in counterpoint and fugue experimentally through a series of progressive keyboard exercises. These partimenti not only address practical skills in realizing thoroughbass, they are also designed to develop the student’s understanding of the exercise’s thematic material and to exploit its implications in the art of practical counterpoint. As such, Sala’s partimenti reveal what most counterpoint treatises fail to address, that is: how to develop contrapuntal fluency systematically at the keyboard. (From Peter van Tour, “Introduction”, The 189 Partimenti of NICOLA SALA. Complete Edition with Critical Commentary, Volume 1.).
