    "wer bist du hier in dieser stadt, in diesem land, in dieser neuen welt": Die Identitätsbalance in der Fremde in ausgewählten Werken der deutschsprachigen Migrantenliteratur2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The central concern of this thesis is to investigate the development of the personal identity of the main characters in four novels, a novella, and a short-story, written in German by authors from different countries who have immigrated to post World War II Germany and Switzerland. Earlier research concerning these identity processes is reviewed with emphasis on the relevance of the different theoretical models of development of personal identity used. A model called “identity-balance”, first described by the German sociologist Lothar Krappmann, is used in analysing the changes in personal identity. This model is preferred because of Krappmann’s strong emphasis on interaction, process, and openness. Based upon the results of the interpretations a modification of Krappmann’s model is suggested in order to better shed light upon identity processes following migration. As languages are shown to play a great role in these processes, aspects concerned with multilingualism and the part languages play in the “identity-balance” are discussed throughout the thesis. The textual interpretations reveal the connection between three lines of change: changes in personal identity, changes in society following migration, and changes in the field of literature.

    Teaterpjäsen fotboll: En studie om identitetsskapande och maskulinitet inom Hammarby fotbolls Supporterkultur2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    To be a football supporter can today mean very different things depending om who you ask. It can mean anything from being a dedicated follower of a football team or maybe a troublemaker who enjoys fighting. It can archive great things and cause tremendous problems. This thesis will try to clear up what it means to be a supporter and how one become one. What being on an arena or on a supporter bus does to the individual in terms of acting and how the individual goes into a roll of being a supporter.  I also bring up how media affect the supporter culture and how it, through its way of reporting about matches, create an exclusion of women in supporter culture. I have conducted an observation where I followed along on a supporter bus on its way to an away game. With this I have also done 5 interviews with supporters from the same team as the observation. With this empirical data that I have collected, I have used Erving Goffmans theory on frontstage and backstage in terms of getting an understanding on how the individual goes into a roll. The result shows how the scenery around the football game have an impact on how the individuals transform into the role of the supporter. How media affects this role and how it, though its way of reporting about football matches and supporters, create an exclusion of women.

    Kanon i skolan: Attityder till kanon och didaktik i skolans värld2014Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna undersökning har varit att undersöka lärares attityder gällande litteraturkanon och lärares didaktiska synsätt och uppfattningar gällande litteratur. Och om dessa attityder påverkar undervisning och litteratururval. Frågeställningarna har varit: 1. Hur motiverar lärare sina litteratururval till undervisning? 2. Hur resonerar lärare didaktiskt kring litteratur i skolan? 3. Går det att urskilja ett samband mellan didaktiska synsätt och synsätt på litteraturkanon?

    Metoden som används i studien är kvalitativa samtalsintervjuer med fyra verksamma svensklärare på gymnasienivå. Resultatet visar att lärarna är eniga om att läsning är viktig men att utrymmet för läsning har minskat. De menar att det som påverkar deras litteratururval mest är vad som finns att tillgå på skolan och de ekonomiska aspekterna rörande det. Dessutom påverkas de av styrdokument och kursmål. Lärarna har olika synsätt på svenskämnet och att de strävar åt ena eller andra hållet utifrån tre konstruktioner av svenskämnet som Malmgren och Molloy formulerat och diskuterat. En av lärarna menar dock att hennes undervisning är en kombination av de olika konstruktionerna. Lärarna i studien menar att svenskämnet mer och mer kommit att bli ett färdighetsämne än något annat och att kulturarv och erfarenhetspedagogik får stå tillbaka. Endast en av lärarna är negativt inställd till kanon men gemensamt är att lärarna anser att det finns en outtalad litteraturkanon i Sverige som de påverkas av. En större studie utifrån denna med en bredare undersökningsgrupp skulle kunna ge ett tydligare resultat med högre reliabilitet. Det skulle även vara intressant att kombinera denna studie med en undersökning av elevers uppfattning om litteratur, litteratururval och litteraturkanon för att få en mer övergripande bild av situationen med läsning hos Sveriges unga.

    Anorexia Nervosa - Att skapa ordning i kaos: En studie om ätstörningens rituella karaktär i den individualiserade världen2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to analyze how individuals experience their eating disorder, the focus being if anorexia may be perceived as a purity ritual in the new individualized world. The aim is to examine if individuals affected with anorexia nervosa perceive the disorder as a comforting solution to the modern world’s indistinct boarders and the individual freedom that it entails. This will be analyzed with the help of Mary Douglas theories about purity rituals, dirt and order and Catarina Kinnvalls theories about the individualized world’s uncertainty.

    To limit the study I have chosen to examine newspaper articles and documentaries that focus on anorexia nervosa and thus excluded material on other eating disorders. The material of this study consists of 177 newspaper articles and 6 documentaries, which were published between 2000 and 2014. While processing the empirical material I have focused on how individuals with anorexia perceive the underlying factors for the eating disorder, and general expert statements on anorexia. These statements have been further analyzed based on recurring key words and patterns.   

    The results of the analysis show that anorexia nervosa, if seen in the light of its ritual elements, can be perceived as a solution to the modern world’s unorganized chaos. With the help of the purity ritual (i.e. the eating disorder) the individual is trying to escape the anxiety that arises when he/she is faced with unmanageable choices in the individualized world. In this sense, the original problem is not anorexia: anorexia is the solution. The daily monitoring of diet and exercise routines could possibly be understood as a purity ritual the individual obey in an attempt to structure the modern world’s indistinct boarders. In the chronically changing individualized world, it is not inconceivable that the eating disorder’s ritualistic character is perceived as a mechanism to organize the environment and set clear boundaries.

    Aux frontières de l’anthropocentrisme: la présence animale dans les romans de Michel Houellebecq2015Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation sets out to explore the animal presence in the novels of contemporary French writer Michel Houellebecq. Focusing on this often overlooked aspect in the growing number of publications dedicated to Houellebecq’s literary production, this study argues that the presence of animals is central to understanding how his novels are structured around borders between not only animals and humans but also between humans themselves. By pitting animals against humans the novels simultaneously show how these borders are created within the narratives only to be repeatedly broken down and/or transgressed. Whereas in previous research a posthumanvision in Houellebecq’s works has been largely attributed to the theme of a technological surpassing of the human, this study advances the idea that animals constitute an inherent part of Houellebecq’s questioning of an anthropocentric worldview. The first chapter of the thesis, which lays the foundation for the study, explores how descriptions structure two major ways in which animals are present: either as a backdrop setting where the characters, while trying to maintain the border between themselves and animals, are transformed into observers of animals in their natural habitat, or as metaphors used to describe appearances and seemingly unwanted personality traits of some of the characters. The second chapter expands on the idea of a frontier between animals and humans but contrary to the previous chapter it studies the porosity of these borders by showing how humans and animals are depicted and narrated in similar ways. Drawing on the theories of Giorgio Agamben, Dominique Lestel and Tristan Garcia the study concludes by proposing to read Houellebecq’s novels both as a form of life stories relating a common history between animals and humans and as an attempt to highlight the untenable project of maintaining an anthropocentric worldview.

    Den svenska aidsepidemin: Ankomst, bemötande, innebörd2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation investigates the public response to HIV/AIDS in Sweden in the 1980s and early 1990s. The analysis focuses on the National Commission on AIDS (NCA,“Aidsdelegationen”). The NCA was appointed by the government in 1985, led by the Minister of Social Affairs and mandated to initiate and coordinate the national response to the epidemic and in function until 1992. The dissertation’s theoretical framework is based on the understanding of an epidemic as a cultural and historical concept, emphasizing that health policy in the late twentieth century must be analyzed as a complex process of problematization. 

    The study includes four parts. The first part covers the years 1982 to 1985, an era characterized by small scale action, based mainly on voluntary initiatives with small resources. The second part examines the period 1985-1989, when the NCA formed an official national policy based on both strong legislation (enabling quarantine of recalcitrants, registration, contact tracing etc.) and massive nationwide information efforts (through mass media campaigns). This highly active phase was followed by a period of consolidation, from 1989 to 1992, examined in the third part of the study. This period included a new infectious disease act focused on HIV/AIDS as well as official campaigns with stronger focus on the individuals’ responsibility for their own health. In the last part, covering the years 1992-1996, I show how the HIV/AIDS problem was institutionalized as a disease and health topic alongside many others. The national campaigns continued through the 1990s, focusing on empowerment and individualization.

    As in many similar countries, the main aim of the Swedish strategy was to educate and encourage people to act with caution and responsibility towards themselves and their fellow citizens. In addition to this cooperation and inclusion approach, a strategy of contain and control was also implemented. This second strategy can, as I show, be explained by the strong connection made between HIV/AIDS and drug users. Through this connection, the Swedish drug policy had a decisive influence on the Swedish HIV/AIDS policy.

    Akademibondens plikt, universitetets rätt: Feodala produktionsförhållanden vid Uppsala universitets gods 1650-17902001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral dissertation studies the relationship between customary tenants (landbor) and landlords in Sweden during the 17th and 18th centuries. This was a basic relationship within Swedish society and thus fundamental to economic, social, juridical and political life. A detailed study of this relationship can thus provide knowledge concerning the function of and changes within society. The study concentrates on the frequent contacts between the owners and users of the land, a topic previous research has largely ignored. The form and content of these contacts is accordingly something quite unknown. Consequently, the point of departure of this study is three elementary questions:

    What was the relationship between tenants and landlords?

    How did the relation between tenants and landlords change?

    Why did this change take place?

    To be able to study the actors that were the backbone of this relation, and to answer the questions, I have chosen to study the estate of Uppsala University, and the relationship between the university peasants and Uppsala University as landlords during the period 1650-1790. The reason for choosing this particular estate is the nature and extent of the source material, which makes it possible to conduct a very detailed study over a long span of time.

    Modala och futurumbildande hjälpverb i svenska som andraspråk2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Hjälpverb tillhör de vanligaste orden i språket och syftet med denna undersökning är att beskriva andraspråksinlärarens användning av modala och futurumbildande hjälpverb. Användningen undersöks på två olika språkliga nivåer, senare delen av nybörjarnivå och avancerad nivå. Materialet för undersökningen är resonerande text, som använts vid examination. Hjälpverben excerperades och en kvantitativ jämförande studie gjordes mellan de två nivåerna. Därefter gjordes en djupgående analys av användningen av några hjälpverb. Resultatet visar att andelen hjälpverb är ungefär lika stor på de båda nivåerna. Kan är det vanligaste hjälpverbet. Vissa hjälpverb används bara på den avancerade nivån, t.ex. kommer att och får. Trots att hjälpverb verkar vara lättanvända för andraspråksinläraren innehåller texterna vissa semantiska avvikelser från målspråksnormen, framför allt vid ska, som på den lägre nivån ofta används icke-idiomatiskt, men på den avancerade nivån används i stort sett korrekt. Hur användningen ser ut kan bero på transfer, som ofta är en god hjälp vid användningen av hjälpverb i andraspråket, även om översättningar ibland leder till fel. Hjälpverbens frekvens i språkbruket och hur exponeringen ser ut i undervisning kan också tänkas påverka användningen.

    Kisa Stationsamhälle: från kyrkoby till municipalsamhälle 1895-19052011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The current field of research concerning the impact of railroads in Sweden beside from the State main-line network is relatively narrow. Including cultural impact to the area narrows the results even further. The purpose of this study is to open the field even more into the local societies and to what extent the impact of the introduction of railroad might have had on smaller county villages. Sweden holds a unique position concerning “station towns” or “railways towns” in terms of railway policy and the industrial development in towns that were affected by the railway, as the affected towns continued development were based on a hybrid between direct democracy and adaptations of city-law policies.

    This study takes place in Kisa, a small town in southern Östergötland that during the beginning of the 20th century turned into a municipal community due to the building of Östra centralbanan (roughly translated Eastern central-line). The aim has been to apply and compare earlier results concerning station towns in general research with local research on the town of Kisa.The tools for investigating the impact of the railroad in Kisa include demographical, industrial and criminal development of the town. Local letters sent to the district moot, in Swedish termed as kommunalstämma, as well as an insight to the local newspaper are also presented in this study. The conclusions of this study approves in many forms to the results of earlier research, but also opens questions for further research regarding the interacting relationship between sociology, voluntary sector and cultural differences in the early industrial station towns.

    Living Shi'ism: Instances of Ritualisation among Islamist Men in Contemporary Iran2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Iranian Shi‘ism is, among other things, known for its rituals of sorrow. In the contemporary Iranian context, active participation in these rituals has become a sign of support for the Islamist regime. The aim of this study is to discuss the ritual activities in the lives of a group of supporters of the regime. It seeks to explore the purposes and meanings of intense ritual commitment among Islamist individuals on a grass-roots level. Based on interviews with five individuals and fieldwork in their mosque community in Esfahān during the years 1999–2003, the study characterises different levels of meaning in their ritual activity.

    To begin with, there is a canonical level of meaning, a framework of Islamic theology and law in which religiously prescribed conduct has its given place and purpose. In the community of my informants, this canonical meaning is conveyed at public gatherings that are lead by religious authorities. The paramount concept discussed at these meetings is virtue, taqvā. At lectures, Koran classes and prayer meetings ritual activity is related to ambition to uphold moral purity in a world of temptations.

    To a certain extent the values, ideas and modes of conduct that are promoted by the authorities become the thoughts and behaviour of the individual informants. This hap-pens through a social authorisation process. Although the informants are much aware of canonical meanings they also construe ritual activities in their own personal ways. They find meanings which, although they do not necessarily contradict the canonical ones, are related to the informants’ own life situations. Hence, there is also a self-referential level of meaning in the ritual activity. This level differs between the various individuals and may change from one time to another.

    Finally, there is an embodied meaning in ritual activity which is difficult to verbalise. Ritual is not only performed ideas, but also bodily experience in its own right. The strongly emotional rituals to which my informants are committed are clear examples of this as they are experienced in and expressed through the body. The meaning of ritual, then, is created through a conglomeration of the culturally conveyed canonical interpreta-tions of life and of the informants’ own embodied experiences.

    A Random Bored: How randomization in cooperative board games create replayability and tension2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines five cooperative board games from the perspective of how randomization is used and how it affects the replayability and player strategy, with the intent to properly identify and categorize elements that contribute to replayability and tension and uses randomization to do so. Each element directly affected by or causes randomization is identified, explained (both what it does and how and what it affects), and categorized based on where in the game the randomization originates in the effort to create a base for game designers to get a better understanding of randomization, if and how they can use it, and which method of using it that can be useful for their own designs.The thesis discusses the impact of using certain randomization elements and draws some conclusions based on how they relate to the replayability and tension of games that use those elements.

    The Chronology of Final Devoicing and the Change of *z to ʀ in Proto-Norse2016In: Futhark: International Journal of Runic Studies, ISSN 1892-0950, E-ISSN 1892-0950, Vol. 7, p. 47-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The inflection of strong verbs in Old Norse shows that its predecessor, Proto-Norse, must have undergone a process of final devoicing. This paper is an attempt to describe in some detail the sound change of final devoicing and to clarify its absolute and relative chronology. Special focus is placed on the relation­ship between final devoicing and the first phase of rhotacism, i.e. the change of *z to ʀ, and potential consequences that this may have on determination of the sound value of the alǥiz-rune (ᛉ = z/ʀ). An investi­gation of direct evidence from runic inscriptions and an analysis of the relative chro­nol­ogy with a-syncope and other sound changes leads to the conclusion that final devoicing was not yet in effect in the oldest group of inscriptions, but had been carried through by A.D. c. 600, most likely in the sixth century. After this time, the alǥiz-rune is unlikely to have represented a voiced sibilant.

    Att legitimera skärvorna av en union: En studie av den politiska kulturen under 1400-talet i Norden2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a study of the norms and values of political culture during the 15th century.  The political culture gives the struggle for power in the Kalmar Union in the 15th century its characteristics.  The aim of this study is to identify the political culture and how it contributed to the political polarisation and disagreement within the Kalmar Union during the reign of King Karl Knutsson (Bonde) 1448-1470 and Regent Sten Sture 1470-1503. The theoretic approach is based partly on Eva Österberg’s definition of political culture, but mainly the theory is based on Harald Gustafsson’s thoughts and identified eight arguments for legitimising power used in political correspondence during the 16th century. These arguments are examples of how someone could express themselves to legitimise their power.

    The method used in this study identifies what non-vocal structures and values that are expressed in the official material of legal documents including treaties and open letters to or from the common people. Firstly, the context of the document is identified and information like who wrote it, when and why, secondly the study analyses how the operators’ addresses and use titles to one another. Thirdly the study identifies words and phrases that express positive values for legitimation. The values that has been found have been analysed in comparison to the law in order to identify if the values could be found in the laws as well.

    To conclude the study found that there are differences in how the operators expresses themselves and the emotional connection to the situation, although non-vocal structures like norms enforce the operators to apply a certain amount of respect. The political culture and the diplomatic mission creates the standards used in addressing their opponent. Therefore the choices of words are important and the study identifies five larger values that comes to light, they are law and justice, unity, assurances, commitments and duties and good characteristics. All of these can be identified during the entire research period and supported by the values expressed in the law.
