    Gender norms and religion;: A case study of HIV and gender norms among Christian urban youth in Rwanda2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    HIV is a real and present problem currently facing Southern and Eastern Africa. Previous research has shown how gender inequality and religion both play a central role in explaining the prevalence of HIV and AIDS. Southern and Eastern Africa has a highly religious population, and since religious communities play an important role in people’s lives, these communities could have the potential to mitigate the currently ongoing HIV epidemic. Youths in urban areas are a key group demographic in stopping the spread of HIV. Rwanda have worked extensively with gender equality and empowering women.

    Several studies have examined gender norms in Southern and Eastern Africa, especially in areas with a high HIV-prevalence. However, there is a lack of research examining social structures related to masculinity and femininity among religious urban youth. This study aims to expand our understanding of the gender norms of Christian urban youths in Southern and Eastern Africa, and how the present of the harmful gender norms affects the spread of HIV within this demographic. Urban youths are one of the groups that most affected by HIV in Southern and Eastern Africa, which is why this study relies on a field study is based on qualitative interviews among people between the ages of 18-30 living in Rwanda’s capital Kigali. Results indicate that while young women have begun to challenge the gendered norms attributed to them, and are increasingly encouraged to do so, young men remained confined to more traditional gender norms. Strong masculine gender norms are still present and these norms have a negative impact on health seeking behavior; thus, the spread of HIV is likely to here be a gendered process.

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

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

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

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

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

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

    CHILD MARRIAGE PRACTICES IN THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CAMPS2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study seeks to achieve a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of child marriage among Syrian refugees, identify the causes and the consequences of this phenomenon, and explore the relationship between the armed conflict in Syria and the prevalence of child marriage practices among Syrian refugees living in refugee camps in Lebanon. To achieve the objectives of the study, the researcher used the case study approach and mixed-methods methodology in data collection and analysis. Quantitative data were collected by questionnaire from twenty participants, all women who married before the age of eighteen. Qualitative data were collected through interviews with ten of the participants, all of whom married before the age of eighteen. The findings indicate the contributing role played by the Syrian armed conflict in the prevalence of child marriage practices among Syrian refugees and that Syrian refugees used child marriage as a survival strategy. The results also reveal that there are two types of child marriages: forced and consensual. The study demonstrates that child marriage is a serious violation of children's rights. Recommendations for governments, NGOs, and further research are included.

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

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

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

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

    Age assessment of refugees: Is age a crucial factor?: Is age a crucial factor?2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    This thesis aims to describe and examine age assessments within the Swedish Immigration Act and what age is given the most importance in the Swedish asylum process. It also surveys the age assessments of the countries I have compared and how they are affected by war or religion. The thesis focuses on the age assessment of children who seek asylum in Sweden: how this process works, how legal certainty is established in Swedish law, and other relevant legal instruments such as the Convention of the Child. Age is directly decisive for a person seeking protection in Sweden, which is why this is the starting point for this study. The thesis first describes the legal situation in Sweden and addresses various aspects regarding the age of children who seek Swedish asylum.

    If asylum seekers are over 18 years old, meaning they are adults rather than children, this has a significant impact on the rights that they are granted; this gives asylum seekers an incentive to lie in order to be perceived as children. This could, however, also be explained by different ways of understanding the concept of age in different countries. How is the concept of age understood in Swedish migration law, and does this correlate with the asylum seeker’s understanding of age? Might there be variation between countries? The second part of the thesis is based on interviews with asylum-seeking people and attempts to understand how they systematically understand the concept of age.

    I present a selection from certain countries to demonstrate differences in how they perceive age based on various factors. The results of the interviews and an assessment based on the opinions of several countries indicate that age is a construction that varies depending on the context. There is also variation between individuals, indicating that generalizable conclusions are difficult to draw. This does contribute, however, to an understanding of the complexity of establishing age, particularly when it comes to the crucial line between child and adult.

    The study shows that there is some concern about the age of the children, but there are several reasons for doubting the stated age, such as cultural heritage, subjective understanding of age- related aspects and genes

    My study shows that the difficulties that exist around a child's age have several explanations. Cultural heritage, subjective understanding of age, genetics and several other factors can affect

    2

    the view of age. It should also be noted that religion, war and peace are essential to the assessment, as it is clear in each country that both war and religion affect so-called social age and chronological age.

    Keywords: children, unaccompanied children, subjective perception of age, asylum seekers, medical age determination.

    Berättelser från den mörka kontinenten: en studie om vulvovaginal smärta och vård på lika villkor2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine how women with genital pain experience health care in terms of information, availability, treatment and resources. Through interviews with women with vulvovaginal pain these experiences are further compared to the Swedish guidelines and criteria’s regarding equal health care. Applying critical theories of gender and power to the material enables to examine if discourses of female bodies and diseases affect women’s right to health and health care. The analysis shows that women with genital pain are in general dissatisfied with the quality of the health care given to them. Discourses about women's bodies, pain and diseases contribute to the normalization and elimination of female genital pain in the health care system and in the society as whole. The conclusions are that a more fundamental and accurate effort on gender equality is needed to determine how gender and normative male standards in medicine affect women's access to a satisfactory health care on equal terms.

    I am super jealous of all the little girls who get to see themselves be the hero of Star Wars: en studie om fandom och sekulär helighet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Finding something sacred in secular society is a relatively new field of religious studies. This thesis aims to find the secular sacred amongst Star Wars fans on the blogging platform Tumblr, in relation to Kim Knott and her theory of the secular sacred. I collected and studied 100 blog posts about Star Wars, specifically about one of its main characters, Rey. The research questions used were “How do fans of Star Wars and Rey express themselves on Tumblr?”, and “Could it be seen as sacred according to Kim Knott´s theory of secular sacred?” I analyzed the material with a hermeneutic approach, and using Kim Knott’s theory, I categorized the posts in to three categories: sacred, appreciative and sacrilegious. Even though the appreciative category was by far the largest, the results showed that a fifth of all the blog posts could be perceived as having content that could be seen as sacred to its poster. I came to the conclusion that my study supports the theory of sacredness not being exclusive to religious society, but can be found in the secular as well.

    Kvinnorättsförsvarare i Colombia: – starka aktörer eller offer?2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Colombia has been characterized by an internal armed conflict since the 1960s where several violations of the human rights have followed. Threats and violence against human rights defenders is one example and this is directed toward both men and women in an attempt to deter these brave individuals from continuing their work.

    This thesis focuses on the commitment of women’s human rights defenders in Colombia. Numerous international human rights organizations and institutions claim that women are a particularly vulnerable group, which is why I choose to focus on this group. Starting from different feminist theories and with regard to intersectional perspectives, I want to find out: What motivates women in Colombia to defend women’s human rights? Do they pursue any specifically important issues? How do they handle the obstacles they face in their work? These questions are posed in order to find out how these women’s human rights defenders work with human rights in relation to the obstacles that they face. I want to find out what strategies they use to handle the obstacles that they are faced with. The material of the thesis mostly consists of semi-structured interviews with women from domestic women’s human rights organizations in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá.

    The results show that women’s human rights defenders incentive is individual and cannot be too generalized. According to the common components in the women’s answers they are motivated by the need to fight injustices, mainly social- and political injustices in relation to being a woman and violations within the armed conflict. They are empowered to continue their work through each other, through the processes and the determination to not give up. There are many specifically important issues, for example land rights, gender-based violence and rights of the ethnic minorities. Some of these rights are even said to be today’s biggest challenge for the country. The women’s human right defenders handle the obstacles to their work through not giving up until the injustices are fought and through giving each other hope. They refuse to let the perpetrators win.

    Vägskäl: Pingströrelsens kursändring under 1950-talet2015Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Femtiotalet innebar ett vägskäl för den svenska Pingströrelsen. Den rörelse som byggts på ett starkt informellt ledarskap fick plötsligt problem när ledaren Lewi Pethrus 1958, efter nästan ett halvsekel, lämnade sin formella position som föreståndare i Filadelfiaförsamlingen i Stockholm. Frustrationen som uppstod när Pethrus inte längre hade tillgång till och kontroll över tidskrifter, förlag och konferenser drabbade inte bara honom utan hela rörelsen. Hur skulle den nu organiseras?    Dessutom var femtiotalet en tid av andlig förnyelse i Pingströrelsen. Efter ett fyrtiotal på tomgång kom nu “helandeväckelsen”, “särlaregnsväckelsen” och “förnyelseväckelsen” att på olika sätt prägla och i vissa fall splittra rörelsen. I kalla krigets skugga kom dessa väckelsevågor, tillsammans med ett stigande intresse för eskatologi, att förnya och förändra rörelsen på olika sätt.    Den här boken handlar om detta avgörande decennium i svensk pingströrelse. Den ger oss en bakgrund till kursändringen genom att skildra de dåtida samhällsförändringarna i Sverige. Den sätter också in händelserna i ett internationellt perspektiv. Särskilt skildras kontakterna mellan Sverige och USA. Den förser oss med speciella skildringar av de olika väckelsevågorna och vi får även en jämförelse mellan den teologi som predikades på femtiotalet och den som framfördes vid pingstväckelsens början. Slutligen sätts det dåtida maktskiftet i Pingströrelsen in i ett historiskt perspektiv.    Artiklarna har fötts ur seminariearbetet vid Institutet för Pentekostala Studier i Uppsala. Författarna är, eller har varit, knutna till Uppsala universitet i ämnena kyrkohistoria eller kulturantropologi.

    Paulus lagsyn i Rom 3:21-312015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats behandlar Paulus syn på lagen vilket är ett mycket omdebatterat område inom paulusforskningen. Frågan om Paulus lagsyn är så central för den övergripande paulustolkingen att alla som vill förstå Paulus och hans texter måste bilda sig en uppfattning om detta. Det har skrivits många hyllmeter och diskussionen verkar långt ifrån avslutad. Frågan kräver dock tydliga avgränsningar för att kunna behandlas i denna relativt korta uppsats. Därför kommer jag fokusera på en perikop i ett av Paulus brev som behandlar denna fråga. Min frågeställning blir då: Vad menar Paulus med ”lagen” i Rom 3:21-31?

    Public awareness and individual responsibility needed for judicious use of antibiotics: a qualitative study of public beliefs and perceptions2018In: BMC Public Health, ISSN 1471-2458, E-ISSN 1471-2458, Vol. 18, no 1, article id 1153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    High consumption of antibiotics has been identified as an important driver for the increasing antibiotic resistance, considered to be one of the greatest threats to public health globally. Simply informing the public about this consequence is insufficient to induce behavioral change. This study explored beliefs and perceptions among Swedes, with the aim of identifying factors promoting and hindering a judicious approach to antibiotics use. The study focused primarily on the medical use of antibiotics, also considering other aspects connected with antibiotic resistance, such as travelling and food consumption.

    Methods

    Data were collected through focus group discussions at the end of 2016. Twenty-three Swedes were recruited using an area-based approach and purposive sampling, aiming for as heterogeneous groups as possible regarding gender (13 women, 10 men), age (range 20–81, mean 38), and education level. Interview transcripts were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. The Health Belief Model was used as a theoretical framework.

    Results

    Antibiotic resistance was identified by participants as a health threat with the potential for terrible consequences. The severity of the problem was perceived more strongly than the actual likelihood of being affected by it. Metaphors such as climate change were abundantly employed to describe antibiotic resistance as a slowly emerging problem. There was a tension between individual (egoistic) and collective (altruistic) reasons for engaging in judicious behavior. The individual effort needed and antibiotics overprescribing were considered major barriers to such behavior. In their discussions, participants stressed the need for empowerment, achieved through good health communication from authorities and family physicians.

    Conclusions

    Knowledge about antibiotic consumption and resistance, as well as values such as altruism and trust in the health care system, has significant influence on both perceptions of individual responsibility and on behavior. This suggests that these factors should be emphasized in health education and health promotion. To instead frame antibiotic resistance as a slowly emerging disaster, risks diminish the public perception of being susceptible to it.

    En  modell för hållbara inköp: Hur bör inköpare granska sina leverantörer för att nå de globala målen?2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay was to lay the foundations for a model in the form of a question battery that can help buyers compare the sustainability responsibilities of different suppliers, so that the buyer can choose the supplier that contributes most to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

    The model is designed as a question battery to enable the buyer to ask more comprehensive questions to the various suppliers regarding social, ecological and economic sustainability than they do today.

     

    In order to find questions on an overall ethical level I have investigated how the global institutions intend us to navigate and prioritize between the SDGs, I have also applied the Aristotelian and Kantian ethics and Archie Carrol's model, the CSR pyramid, to broaden the ethical perspective in the questions to the companies.

     

    The result is a question battery with questions about the company's vision and global goals, about the company's values ​​linked to all stakeholders, questions about whether the internal good and the external good are in harmony with society, questions about the company's value chain and business model and a larger stakeholder analysis.

     

    How should a buyer then be able to evaluate a supplier's different answers? This essay aimed to create the first questionnaire with a broad question battery, the next step is to evaluate the different answers.

    Animal and Human Subjectivity in Cixous' Algerian narratives2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the place of the human and the animal in Hélène Cixous' work. It takes the figure of Fips, the dog of the Cixous family that she writes about in her autobiographical narratives, as a starting point. By thinking through this figure, I argue, Cixous analyses the dehumanizing logic of colonialism and anti-Semitism in Algeria and develops her own response to it, arguing for human relationality and animal corporeality. The paper shows that Cixous’ primal encounter with Fips produces a stigma that, belatedly, ruptures the barrier between herself and this specific dog; its dehiscence reveals a profound animal humanity generated by suffering, finitude, and compassion. The lesson Cixous learns from the memory of the Dog is how to become ‘more human’.

    Assault on the Borders: Hélène Cixous on Animals and the Human2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the continual displacement of nearly every established conception of the human, the figure of the human remains a powerful idea for political and ethical theorizing. In the era of human rights, the language of dehumanization has become a dominant frame for accounting for and criticizing a wide range of abuses and social harms. Likewise, the human has come to mark a status that promises protection from the dehumanizing effects of violence, discrimination and other modes of injustice. Cixous’ recent work on the concept have contributed to this discussion by providing an analysis of the borders between what we call human and inhuman and by pointing to the precarious conditions of hospitality towards other beings (human and nonhuman). This paper examines the place of the human and animals in Cixous’ work. It takes the figure of Fips, the dog of the Cixous family in Algiers, as a starting point. By thinking through this figure, Cixous analyses the dehumanizing logic of colonialism and anti-Semitism in Algeria and develops her own response to it, arguing for human relationality and animal corporeality. The paper shows that Cixous’ relationship with Fips produces a stigma that, belatedly, disrupt the barrier between herself and this specific dog. The lesson Cixous learns from revivifying the memory of the Dog is how to become ‘more human’. This becoming is also an assault on the false humanism of the colonial project, on the closed Gates as markers of colonial dehumanization and racialized social exclusion. The lesson of hospitality Cixous learns by another primal event: the resurrection of Fips in the form of another animal – the unexpected arrival of a cat (Thea) that puts conditional hospitality into question simply by demanding (and giving) an unconditional hospitality.

    Franz Kafka’s and Hannah Arendt’s perceptions of membership in a human community2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the complex, paradoxical and tortuous relationship between human, nonhuman and inhuman in the fiction of Franz Kafka and the philosophy of Hannah Arendt in connection with the issues of the ethical importance of being human and the political processes that produces the ideological concept of “the human.” Whereas Arendt, as a philosopher, is especially concerned with the legal or quasi-legal norms that should entitle every subject, even a stateless refugee, to appear as a member in a political community, Kafka, as a literary writer, analyzes the social norms of “imagination” that determine whether a human being appears to fellow human beings as a member of the human community at all.

    'My little wild fever-struck brother': Human and animal subjectivity in Hélène Cixous' Algeria2017In: International Journal of Philosophy and Theology, ISSN 2169-2327, E-ISSN 2169-2335, Vol. 78, no 4-5, p. 456-468Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the place of human and animal subjectivityin two autobiographically informed texts by Hélène Cixous. It takesher view on the word ‘human’ and the figure of Fips, the dog ofthe Cixous family, as a point of departure. By thinking through thisfigure, I argue, Cixous analyses the dehumanizing logic of colonialismand anti-Semitism in Algeria and develops her own responseto such kinds of political evils, arguing for human relationality andanimal corporeality. The article shows that Cixous’ meeting withFips creates a stigma that, belatedly, breaks through the barrierbetween herself and the dog; the reopening of the wound takesplace in a poetical writing that reveals an intense ‘animal humanity’formed by communal suffering, finiteness, and love. The lessonCixous learns from the memory of Fips the dog is how to become‘better human’. This becoming is also an assault on the falsehumanism of the colonial project and on racialized social exlusion.
