    Utbildningens revolutioner: Till studiet av utbildningshistorisk förändring2017Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ordet revolution avser i allmänhet en omvälvande eller grundläggande förändring som, i jämförelse med långsammare processer, sker under en kortare tid. I utbildningshistoriska sammanhang är ordet revolution användbart eftersom det riktar fokus på de övergripande och omvälvande förändringar som karaktäriserat utbildningsväsendet under de senaste trehundra åren. I vår bok presenteras analyser av ett brett urval av förändringar inom det svenska utbildningsväsendet. Antologin inkluderar kapitel om förändringar i 1800-talets skola och utbildning, däribland införandet av Läsebok för folkskolan, arbetarorganisationers fostran av demokrater, och en kritisk analys av föreställningen om 1800-talets skola som en del av en demokratiseringsprocess. Dessutom ges inblickar i 1900-talets utbildningsrevolutioner med kapitel som ägnar sig åt allt från rökrutans införande, den Nya matematiken, förskolesektorns expansion och 1990-talets utbildningsreformer.Boken har publicerats för att ge en översikt över den omfattande utbildningshistoriska forskningsmiljö som vuxit fram i Uppsala under de senaste tio åren. Den riktar sig till såväl den utbildningshistoriskt intresserade läsaren, som till en bredare historisk och utbildningsvetenskaplig läsekrets.

    Reifying Game Design Patterns: A Quantitative Study of Real Time Strategy Games2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Communicating design is in many aspects a difficult process. Game design is not only directives on look and feel, but also carries intentionality. To properly convey intentionality, a common abstract vocabulary is a well-established method for expressing design. Game design patterns are an attempt to formalize and establish such a vocabulary. Game design patterns are a debated tool and this paper aims to examine the practical application of a pattern through a quantitative study in order to strengthen the potential for a more cohesive definition of the term. This is done by first establishing a game design pattern through observation of RTS games. The pattern is then studied through implementation in three commercial RTS games. The results focus on quantitative data gathered from AI vs AI matches related to game pacing. Through testing and analysis of the AI matches it can be stated that game design patterns in a contextualized setting supports the idea of using game design patterns as a formal tool. It was further concluded that the AI also came with limitations in how the collected data is applicable to the overall design of the games. Additional studies using quantitative data in conjunction with qualitative observations could lend further support to game design patterns as a useful tool for both researchers and developers.

    Vad och hur skriver ett vårdbiträde?: En studie av skriftanvändning inom äldreomsorgen2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur skriftanvändningen ser ut inom äldreomsorgen år

    2017, med fokus på i vilka situationer, i vilka funktioner och hur skrift används.

    Undersökningen har bestått av två observationer med kompletterande intervjuer. En anställd

    inom hemtjänsten och en anställd på ett permanent äldreboende har följts under två separata

    dagar. Resultatet visade att skriftbruket huvudsakligen fyller dokumenterande och

    orienterande/planerande funktioner, vilket stämmer överens med tidigare forskning, men att

    man idag använder sig av tekniska hjälpmedel i en större utsträckning. Slutsatserna man kan

    dra från denna undersökning är att det är de huvudsakliga arbetsuppgifterna, omvårdnaden av

    brukare, samt organisationen av arbetet som styr hur och till vad man använder skrift.

    Samtidigt begränsas och kontrolleras skriftens utformning av regler och riktlinjer från högre

    instanser inom verksamheten.

    Crime, Community and the Negotiated Truth: Court Narratives of Capital Crime in the District Courts of Jämtland-Härjedalen 1649—17002017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to study the court narratives of serious crimes in the district courts of Jämtland-Härjedalen in the latter half of 17th century. This is done by studying the negotiated aspects of criminal court proceedings; how did stories of crime, guilt and character come together in the records to form narratives that became accepted truths by the local community and the authorities? Investigations of serious crime have been sampled from the collected records of five district courts in the period 1649–1700. These records have been analysed by identifying the different actors and voices of the narratives, the social stratification of the participants, their speech acts and how they were depicted by the court and by other participants.

    The analysis of the social stratification of accusers, defendants and witnesses shows evidence of a deeply hierarchical and patriarchal society: men and women of lower social status were not only grossly overrepresented as defendants in criminal investigations, they were also mostly excluded from participating as a witness. The inverse could be said about local elites and landed peasantry. Women were more often accused of crime, and while they were allowed to testify as witnesses, they were less so than men.

    The negotiation of the truth took place in three parallel and intersecting spheres of discourse, differing in what kind of questions were asked and what problems were being discussed between different categories of participants. The nature of crime was negotiated when accusers, defendants and witnesses debated the presented narratives; the accepted narrative of the crime was found by the assessment of the honesty of the individual participants, by considering their reputation and standing in the local community. While the word of the law was unrelenting and impossible to legally negotiate at the district court level, a kind of negotiation was done by the local community and sometimes also the district court taking the side of the defendant, pleading and petitioning the Royal High Court to find mercy for the convicted criminal.

    Evidentiality across age and gender: A corpus-based study of variation in spoken British English2017In: Research in Corpus Linguistics (RiCL), ISSN 1064-4857, E-ISSN 2243-4712, ISSN 2243-4712, Vol. 5, p. 17-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the effects of age and gender on the frequency of the evidentiality categories 'sensory', 'hearsay', and 'inferential' in spontaneous spoken British English. The findings from the main data sample from the British National Corpus (BNC) are also compared to patterns in a smaller data set from the Diachronic Corpus of Present-day Spoken English (DCPSE) in order to estimate the relative effects of age-grading versus historical change. The results confirm statistically significant differences between men and women in their use of evidentiality, but show no significant effect of age or the interaction of age and gender. The comparison of the findings from the BNC data and the DCPSE data suggests that age-related patterns in evidentiality use are more diachronically stable than gender-related patterns.

    Gender differences and similarities in the use of inferential evidentiality in spoken British English: A corpus-based study2017In: Evidentiality and Modality in European Languages: Discourse-Pragmatic Perspectives / [ed] Juana I. Marín-Arrese; Julia Lavid-López; Marta Carretero, Elena Domínguez Romero; Ma Victoria Martín de la Rosa; María Pérez Blanco, Bern: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2017, p. 371-399Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study investigates differences between men and women in their preference for inferential evidentiality markers. Using spoken language data from the British National Corpus, a number of potential markers of inferential evidentiality (for example believe, imagine, must, obviously) have been analyzed for their evidential value as well as for pragmatic dimensions such as degree of certainty and (inter)subjectivity. The findings of the study show statistically significant variation between the male and the female respondents, and the subsequent analysis indicates, among other things, that the markers preferred by males are those that produce intersubjective assessments, whereas the markers preferred by female speakers are those that produce subjective assessments.

    Abstract [en]

    Scholarship on ancient works of literature that survive only in quotations, such as Heracleon’s hypomnēmata (“commentary” or “notes”), often presuppose that the quotations dependably transmit the actual words of the quoted author, thereby ignoring the mediation and the agenda of the quoting author. This article demonstrates that ancient authors frequently adapted quotations to their new contexts, and develops a methodology for evaluating the extent of adaptations made in Origen’s quotations from Heracleon’s hypomnēmata

    Origen’s Vacillating Stances Toward his "Valentinian" Colleague Heracleon2017In: Vigiliae christianae (Print), ISSN 0042-6032, E-ISSN 1570-0720, Vol. 71, no 5, p. 541-569Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When Origen of Alexandria presents numerous extensive quotations from Heracleon, whom he explicitly presents as a follower of Valentinus, one might expect a uniformly adversarial attitude toward this “Valentinian” sectarian. Instead, Origen’s stances are found to vacillate significantly from general renunciation and emphatic criticism, via considered disagreement and hypothetical approval, all the way to agreement and praise. The fascinating interplay between the stance taken and the dogmatic and philological matters in view implies that while dogmatic issues at stake are decisive for whether Origen agrees or disagrees with Heracleon, the full range of variance in Origen’s stances is determined by Heracleon’s philological methodology and presentation of evidence. Origen’s responses to Heracleon reveal that he viewed this predecessor not simply as a heterodox teacher, but also as a colleague in interpreting the New Testament using methods from Greco-Roman literary criticism.

    Vad undervisar musiklärare om?2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats syfte är att undersöka musiklärarnas uppfattning om vad de undervisar om i relation till egen musikalisk bakgrund och i förhållande till styrdokument och andra ramverk. De frågor jag ställt är: Vad anser musiklärare att de lägger mest tid på i sin undervisning? Påverkar musiklärarens egen musikaliska bakgrund vad musikläraren väljer att undervisa om? Vad tycker de intervjuade lärarna om läroplanen i musik och hur förhåller de sig till den? Kvalitativa intervjuer genomfördes med sex olika musiklärare verksamma i högstadiet. Som analysverktyg använsdes ramfaktorteorin. Resultatet visar att musiklärare premierar ensemblespelet och att egen musikalisk bakgrund inte i någon hög utsträckning påverkar vilket moment i musikundervisningen som premieras. Ensemblespelet är också det moment musiklärarna lägger mest tid på i musikundervisningen. Lärarna har delade åsikter om läroplanen men de flesta musiklärarna i min studie ansåg att läroplanen är för detaljerad och har för svåra kunskapsmål i förhållande till ämnets utrymme inom ramen för skolans timplan.

    Abstract [en]
    • Crime novels from Scandinavia are commercial successes all over the world. In Sweden, the dominance of the crime genre on the book market is even more significant. According to Swedish book trade magazine Svensk Bokhandel, twelve of the top twenty books in the bestseller charts of fiction in 2010, were domestic crime novels. This has started intensive debates, where crime novels are blamed for out-competing other genres. Domestic crime fiction has had a commanding position of the commercial side of Swedish publishing business in the 2000s, but this has not always been the case. When did this literary genre-takeover take place? How did it take place? How can it be explained? Even though some research concerning Scandinavian crime fiction has been carried out over the last couple of years, no one has mapped the book market phenomenon as such. This article aims to fill this gap by offering a neutral and extensive description on the role and position of crime fiction in Swedish publishing between 1977 and 2010.

    Död och dagishämtningar: en kvantitativ analys av det tidiga 2000-talets svenska kriminallitteratur2017 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates contemporary Swedish crime fiction through a quantitative content analysis of 116 Swedish crime fiction novels published 1998–2015 and written by the most successful authors in the genre. The study discusses killers, murder motives, victims, murder methods, and detectives and other protagonists, with the aim of identifying social patterns and recurring themes.

    In general, these novels are dominated by female protagonists and put much emphasis on portrayals of the main characters in their struggle to combine work and family life. This simultaneous shift to a female perspective and a focus on everyday life stands out in comparisons to earlier Swedish crime fiction. The novels are furthermore permeated by a partial realism, where depictions of everyday life, settings and contemporary details are realistic and concrete, while depictions of killers, murder motives, murder methods and victims most often are imaginative, spectacular and sensational, and thus in most cases show few similarities with actual crimes in contemporary Sweden. Also, the selection is characterised by a dominance of normality, where main characters and innocent victims affirm “normality” (they are most often middle class, white, heterosexual Swedes without immigrant background), whereas killers and unsympathetic victims are depicted as deviants in stark contrast to normality.

    The content often seems to be chosen by how well it works in relation to plot lines and genre requirements. Therefore, it is argued that both contextualising and functionalistic perspectives need to be taken into account when analysing depictions of society in contemporary crime fiction. With such a dual-vision approach, the ostensible realistic social criticism in the genre to a high extent appears to be a story about the genre.

    Killer Plotting: Typologisk intriganalys utifrån fjärrläsningar av samtida svenska kriminalromaner2017In: Tidskrift för litteraturvetenskap, ISSN 1104-0556, E-ISSN 2001-094X, no 3-4, p. 41-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article updates and extends Tzvetan Todorov’s classical typology of crime fiction from 1971 – where he separates plots driven by curiosity from plots driven by suspense – through a distant reading of 113 commercially successful novels of Swedish crime fiction from the early 2000s. Furthermore, it aims to initiate a methodical discussion in literary studies concerning the benefits of using semi-big materials (instead of either very big or very small ones), and in combining computer-aided and traditional methods. 

    The method used – killer plotting – is a word frequency count of all the times the murderer in each novel is mentioned in the plot related to the point in the plotline where the killer is revealed to the reader (and the protagonists). These rather simple measures manage to capture the basic structures of crime novels: clues, encounters with the hidden murderer, revealing, dramatic finale. 

    The results show that a vast majority of the novels in the selection can be classified into one of six different plot types of crime fiction depending on how the killer appears: 1) the all-novel present murderer; 2) the seemingly insignificant murderer; 3) the suspected murderer; 4) the out-of-the-blue murderer; 5) the second murderer twist; and 6) the non-hidden murderer. All six types lie in the range between the two poles presented by Todorov, which demonstrates that contemporary Swedish crime fiction is dominated by recurring narrative structures that in various ways combine suspense and curiosity.

    Mordens marknad: Litteratursociologiska studier i det tidiga 2000-talets svenska kriminallitteratur2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation deals with Swedish crime fiction and its successes on the Swedish book market in the early 2000s. The genre’s expansion, marketing and literary content is mapped and analysed in three studies that together paint a thorough picture of this literary phenomena in Swedish book trade.

    In study no 1 the development of the genre in Sweden in the last 40 years is discussed from a quantitative perspective. With the base in bibliographies of Swedish crime fiction publication trends are analysed in several ways and concerning topics such as genre growth, gender balance, publishing houses, successful authorships, bestsellers and library lending. The results include: a significant genre expansion in the 2000s; a great dominance for the genre on the bestseller charts in the 2000s; and a shift in the author group, from male dominance to even gender balance.

    In study no 2 the marketing of the genre is examined through an analysis of book covers, titles and other elements in the concrete packaging of just over 150 Swedish crime fiction paperbacks. With book history as an important theoretical influence book covers and other peritextual elements are understood as a significant part of the marketing of the genre, but also – and wider – as of crucial importance for how genres themselves are established, withheld and re-negotiated in the interplay between different actors in the society of literature – publishers, authors, booksellers, readers.

    In study no 3 a quantitative content analysis of 116 Swedish crime novels published 1998–2015 is used to chart and discuss recurring themes and tropes within the genre. Focus is primarily directed towards what is understood as the most central parts of crime fiction: murderers and their motives; methods used in committing murder; victims of murder; and detectives and other protagonists. The results include: a distinct dominance of female protagonists; a partial realism, where depictions of everyday life in general is realistic while the murder plots are spectacular and sensational; and a dominance of normality, where main characters and innocent victims confirms normality, while killers and unsympathetic victims are depicted as deviants in stark contrast with normality.

    The Crime Boom Investigated : Statistical Perspectives on Swedish Crime Fiction, 1977–2010
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the boom in Swedish crime fiction from a statistical perspective. Theoretical input and methods are derived from the fields of sociology of literature, book history, and bibliometrics. With a quantitative approach, all Swedish crime fiction published in 1977–2010 (just over 1,700 titles) are compiled to identify patterns over time. The main source for bibliographical information and delimitations is “Deckarkatalogen” (an annual bibliography published by the Swedish crime fiction magazine Jury).

    Main results: Nearly 2.5 times as many first editions of crime fiction were issued in Sweden in the first decade of the 2000s, compared to the 1980s. The increase was particularly vast in the years following the turn of the millennium. All kinds of publishers have contributed to this expansion, but two types stand out: major publishers and self-publishers. The share of crime fiction written by women increased in the same period of time from between 10 and 20 percent to just over 30 percent. Furthermore, the gender balance among the bestsellers of crime fiction in the 2000s is nearly even. Crime fiction has been extremely dominant on the bestseller charts in Sweden during the 2000s, and the genre outnumbers all other fiction taken together. A few major publishing groups are publishing a growing share of the crime fiction bestsellers. Mostly newer authors are bestsellers in the 2000s, and the time from debut to commercial success is shrinking.

    In the conclusion it is argued that crime fiction can be seen as the normal literature – a term coined by Franco Moretti – among bestsellers of fiction in Sweden during the first decade of the 2000s. The study gives insight into the interplay between authors, publishers, and the reading public, and helps us understand how genre, from a sociological point of view, operates on the literary market.

    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how Swedish crime fiction has been packaged in the book trade in the early 2000s. The main material consists of 153 Swedish crime fiction paperbacks published in Sweden 1998–2011 and written by the most successful authors of crime fiction of that period. The term peritext, coined by Gérard Genette, is used to cover all aspects of books that affect the reader apart from the literary work itself. Five empirical chapters focus on five different aspects: 1) cover design; 2) titles and subtitles; 3) citations and blurbs; 4) acknowledgements; and 5) author presentations, extra material and advertising. It is shown that the packaging of crime fiction is crucial when it comes to genre formation and author branding. Among the results are how these “murder packages” have become increasingly elaborated over time, that male and female writers of crime fiction have been presented in distinctly different ways, and how the reliability and realism of a story often is emphasized in the peritext.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates contemporary Swedish crime fiction through a quantitative content analysis of 116 Swedish crime fiction novels published 1998–2015 and written by the most successful authors in the genre. The study discusses killers, murder motives, victims, murder methods, and detectives and other protagonists, with the aim of identifying social patterns and recurring themes.

    In general, these novels are dominated by female protagonists and put much emphasis on portrayals of the main characters in their struggle to combine work and family life. This simultaneous shift to a female perspective and a focus on everyday life stands out in comparisons to earlier Swedish crime fiction. The novels are furthermore permeated by a partial realism, where depictions of everyday life, settings and contemporary details are realistic and concrete, while depictions of killers, murder motives, murder methods and victims most often are imaginative, spectacular and sensational, and thus in most cases show few similarities with actual crimes in contemporary Sweden. Also, the selection is characterised by a dominance of normality, where main characters and innocent victims affirm “normality” (they are most often middle class, white, heterosexual Swedes without immigrant background), whereas killers and unsympathetic victims are depicted as deviants in stark contrast to normality.

    The content often seems to be chosen by how well it works in relation to plot lines and genre requirements. Therefore, it is argued that both contextualising and functionalistic perspectives need to be taken into account when analysing depictions of society in contemporary crime fiction. With such a dual-vision approach, the ostensible realistic social criticism in the genre to a high extent appears to be a story about the genre.

    The Space Between: The Usefulness of Semi-Distant Readings and Combined Research Methods in Literary Analysis2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study of literature has traditionally been a qualitative scientific endeavour. Researchers have, generally, analysed few and canonised works, and these works have been examined in great detail, with “close readings” being the typical choice of method. Franco Moretti’s term “distant reading” and the rise of digital humanities and different sorts of text mining methods have, at least partly, changed this.

     

    Moretti and his ilks in a way turned the scholarship of literature upside down by focusing units much bigger or much smaller than singular works of literature: “devices, themes, tropes – or genres and systems”, as Moretti put it. Instead of reading the most well-known works of a specific period or genre it was suddenly possible to read almost all literature published and draw other sorts of conclusions (though this also meant handing over much of the reading process to computers).

     

    Most literary scholars engaged in text mining have used very large data corpuses. The general rule seems to have been “the bigger data, the better”. This is certainly true when it comes to showing statistical patterns etcetera. However, the bigger the material, the longer is also the distance between the machine-generated results and the qualitative analysis of these results. If your corpus consists of thousands of books it is simply not possible to know the content of this corpus very well. This is at the same time the strength and the weakness of the text mining research on literature conducted in recent years.

     

    In my opinion, debates about pros and cons of text mining methods in the study of literature have been far too black and white. Instead of either or (big data or canonised work, distant reading or close reading) I argue for a position in between. My field of study is contemporary Swedish crime fiction. In an on-going study I use a corpus of 116 Swedish crime fiction novels published 1998–2015 and written by the most well-known and commercially successful authors of this period of time. Hence, I do not analyse the entire genre, yet not only the most renowned novels within it, but instead around ten per cent of all Swedish novels published in this period (the top decile). This choice makes it possible to both get the bigger picture and be very familiar with the material.

     

    Moreover, I approach this corpus through a combination of methods, where some are computer aided and digital (word frequencies, topic modelling), others more traditional and analogue (shallow thematically-oriented readings of the entire corpus). Together these methods provide solid knowledge of the genre that is both quantitative and qualitative.

     

    In my presentation I argue that such a combination of methods on semi-big data or corpuses can be very fruitful to many literary studies, with material from different epochs and genres. Literary scholars should start to make use of this “space between” the very distant and the very close, and let computer-aided methods serve as a helping hand rather than a goal in itself.

    Italian Music in the Düben Collection2017In: Musicologica Istropolitana, ISSN 1337-9070, no 13, p. 147-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Düben Collection in Uppsala contains many unique compositions and a rela-tively large share of Italian music. About a third of the composers represented in the collection are Italian, and their music constitutes about a sixth of the 2200 com-positions. In the article, a survey of the Italian music is presented and the routes of dissemination are traced. A large share of the compositions by Italian composers have been copied from prints into manuscripts. Some of the prints are still in the Düben Collection, others must have been available to Gustav Düben at some point. As much as half of the Italian compositions belong to this category. There is also a relatively large share of pieces that reached Stockholm in manuscripts, but were originally copied from prints on the Continent – in some cases perhaps even in several steps of manuscript dissemination.

    The numbers of works that reached Sweden through manuscript dissemination only, never having appeared in print, is comparatively small but important, since this group contains several unique Italian works and manuscripts with an interesting dissemination history. About fifteen such manuscripts travelled to Sweden with an ensemble of Italian singers and musicians recruited to the court of Queen Christina in 1652, with Vincenzo Albrici as maestro di cappella. In addition, there are thirty-six manuscripts copied by Gustav Düben and his helpers. This group of manuscripts contains unique works by, for example, Giacomo Carissimi and Francsco Foggia.Two case studies shed light on the complexity of dissemination routes in the case of the Düben Collection. The ten compositions each by Simone Vesi and Gio-vanni Carisio reached Sweden in different ways: they were copied from prints, aquired in manuscript via Lübeck or Hamburg, and via Danzig. Some works have been re-texted and adapted for local purposes.The case of Italian music in the Düben Collection illustrates the complexity of the collection and its routes of dissemination and the necessity to scrutinize and contextualize every single manuscript.

    A Medieval Heroine for the Modern Woman: The Fredrika Bremer Association writes women’s history (c. 1859–1916)2017In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 42, no 1, p. 46-70Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the history writing of the early liberal women’s movement in Sweden, in the Fredrika Bremer Association’s journals such as Tidskrift för hemmet and Dagny. Prominent members of the movement sought to create a new history, by women and for women, and to create a pantheon of foremothers and examples for the modern woman. Medieval women were particularly favoured as they could be described in ways that harmonized well with the overall objectives of the liberal women’s movement and with the self-images of these early feminists. Thus, individuals such as Saint Birgitta and Queen Philippa were given heroine’s portraits and presented as carriers of ideal characteristics. This was a means of positioning themselves and of proving that women were fit to rule and to take active part in political and social life.

    Ukraїnas självständighet 1917 i svensk press 1917–19182017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is a quantitative study with elements of qualitative analysis. The purpose of this quantitative study was to investigate WHAT was written about Ukraine's independence 1917 in Swedish press 1917–1918. The qualitative part of the survey was intended to answer the question if the newspaper's political attitude influenced the news reports during the chosen period. The exact periodization was determined to be between March 1, 1917 and June 30, 1918. This periodization was chosen because of the March Revolution in 1917, which triggered independence declarations in a number of countries oppressed by Moscow, who now saw their chance of freedom. June 1918 became the end of the investigation because it was just when the peace agreement between Ukraine and the Soviet Union was signed.

    The source material has been chosen to represent a multitude of ideological orientations. It was liberal, moderate, conservative, liberal and left-wing orientations. The source material consisted of newspaper articles from the following newspapers: Dagens Nyheter, Aftonbladet, Göteborgs Aftonblad, Svenska Dagbladet, Dalpilen, Kalmar Tidning and Norrskensflamman. Quantitative methodology was used on the source material. This method consisted of a reviewing of newspaper articles in searching of news reports from Ukraine or articles which had something to do with the events in Ukraine. Every newspaper was searched day after day. The crawled material was presented in two chapters representing different periods. The first chapter of the results presented the results from 1917, and more precisely from March to December 1917. The second chapter presented the results from 1918, but also from December 1917, that is, the result from December 1917 through June 1918. The whole result was then discussed in a separate chapter where the qualitative analysis was also discussed.

    The result of the quantitative analysis showed that it has been written relatively sparcely about Ukraine's independence although the volume of articles increased from December 1917 and even more in 1918. Sometimes there were articles on the first page. But for the most part, the articles with Ukraine issues were placed among other foreign articles. It was also found in the survey that it was the first World War that drew attention to the newspapers, even though the events in Petrograd and then in Ukraine took more space. This survey also showed that what was written about Ukraine's independence was also what appears in the reference literature. The news reports reported how Ukraine proclaimed independence in March 1917 and later on proclaimed an independent republic in November 1917 when the Bolsheviks conducted their coup d'état in Petrograd. The newspapers also wrote how the Russian Communists sent a declaration of war to Ukraine in December 1917 and about the war that followed. The articles also tell us how negotiations on Ukraine Peace went on in Brest-Litovsk, and how they ended up with alliance between Germany and Ukraine with the campaign against the communists. It was told how the German army marched into Ukraine to free it from the bolsheviks. Until May 1918 there were battles between the German-Ukrainian Army and the Communists. In June 1918 the peace agreement was signed and this survey’s investigation ended.

    The survey showed that it was written about Ukraine's independence in all newspapers. Dagens Nyheter had the most news articles linked to the survey. Although the number of articles was not subject for analysis in this survey. The qualitative analysis was based on using Höjelid's theoretical concepts "positive sound" and "negative sound" on the quantitative analysis material. The qualitative analysis’ result showed that it was almost impossible to see the differences between the newspapers because the articles were traded between the newspapers, i.e. the content was copied straight away. It should be noted that not all content was the subject of copying between the newspapers. Copying occurred to a greater extent, but there were still original articles derived from the respective newspaper. Most of the articles were also direct telegrams that were communicated abroad to the newspaper's editors. A lot of these telegrammic articles were sent with a purpose to mislead society. These angled articles were published without further examination in Swedish press. There were articles from, for example, Dagens Nyheter whose editors noted the "strange Petrograd reports" and informed about it for the purpose of enlightening the public. However, as most newspapers were occupied with World War I, as was shown in the source material, the newspaper editorial office was less interested in other foreign events. Therefore, such angled articles could be found in Swedish press on a larger scale.

    Religionsdialog: Kommunikativ etik som resurs i mötet mellan kristna och muslimer i Sverige2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study presents, interprets and analyzes Seyla Benhabib's discourse ethics, and investigates its implications for religious dialogue as practical discourse. On the basis of the fundamental principles of universal moral respect and egalitarian reciprocity, as well as the idea of ​​the situated moral self, the author proposes ten normative starting points for inter-religious dialogue between Christians and Muslims in Sweden. Aspects of gender and power are commented in particular. The study shows how discourse ethics impose far-reaching demands on the conditions of the dialogue, on the preparation of it as well as on its participants. The continuity of dialogue is emphasized as the overall goal.

    ”Ja, bara jag får honom”: En jämförande tematisk studie av flickboksgestalten i tre ungdomsromaner av Helena Nyblom, Merri Vik och Lina Forss2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad har flickorna Anna, Lotta och Timoteij gemensamt? Och vad skiljer dem åt? Hur hon än har sett ut eller agerat har flickan i den svenska flickboken diskuterats och kritiserats. Anna i Väninnorna (1912), Lotta i Festligt, Lotta! (1969) och Timoteij i Kär i kärleken (2011) är alla 16 år gamla och huvudroller i var sin ungdomsroman som kategoriseras som flickbok. Centrala motiv i den traditionella flickboken var ofta utvecklingen från flicka till kvinna, den problematik som cirklar kring kärlek och män, äktenskap, familj och hem. Från att flickboksgenren var lämplig läsning för borgerskapets flickor förkastades den under 1960- och 1970-talet. Flickboken skulle dö. Under 1990-talet fick flickboken upprättelse där nutida flickboksforskare menade att de äldre flickböckerna endast förhöll sig till den dominerande strukturens tillåtna form. Idag är det närmare 50 år sedan begreppet ungdomslitteratur ersatte de båda termerna flick- och pojkbok, men forskare menar att vi i ungdomslitteratur från 2000-talet fortfarande kan se mönster från den äldre flickbokslitteraturen.

    Vem är då denna kritiserade och diskuterade flickboksgestalt? Vad jag i den här uppsatsen vill undersöka är om det går att utröna några likheter och skillnader i hur flickan beskrivs och konstrueras i tre ungdomsromaner som kategoriseras som flickböcker, även om de är skrivna under olika tidsperioder. Jag är nyfiken på vem flickboksgestalten är och vill därför studera flickan utifrån tre typiska flickboksteman: kropp/kön, relationer och utvecklingen från flicka till kvinna.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen ämnar undersöka hur kvinnor kring sekelskiftet 1800-1900 arbetade för att skapa en kvinnoseparatistisk arena samt höja sig själva som politiska aktörer i en manligt dominerad sfär. Uppsatsen ställer frågor om historikerns identitet och ifrågasätter bilden av den neutrala personen som en man. Undersökningen diskuterar framför allt hur tre kvinnliga historiker verkade för att skapa ett rum där de och andra kan agera utanför den manliga blicken och dess norm. Men den svarar även på frågor om hur kvinnorna bemöttes av sin manliga omgivning. Genom att utföra denna undersökning vill författaren bidra till en vidare förståelse av strategier kvinnor använde för att navigera sig genom en samtid som verkat begränsade för dem och hur de aktivt arbetade för att bidra till kvinnohistorien.

    En marginaliserad grupp?: SVA-elevers upplevelser av att få sina namn uttalade2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En talare som stöter på ett nytt namn kan ha svårt att uttala det korrekt om det innehåller främmande språkljud. Syftet med studien är att undersöka SVA-elevers upplevelser av att få sina förnamn uttalade. Materialet för studien utgörs av 60 elevers svar på en enkät. Resultatet visade att en betydande del av eleverna upplever att deras namn blir felaktigt uttalade. En del elever upplever detta som besvärligt medan andra är likgiltiga inför faktumet. Analyserna visar att det finns en risk att elever som får sina namn fel uttalade internaliserar en känsla av att inte höra hemma. Men också att en lärare som ska uttala ett nytt namn korrekt behöver veta vilket språk namnet kommer ifrån, det språkets uttalsprinciper och ha förmåga att kunna uppfatta, avkoda och producera de språkljud som ingår i namnet.

    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to pinpoint the main rudiments of Islamic-normative environmental ethics, and also to give an overview of its similarities and/or differences from secular-normative environmental ethics, as they can be interpreted in Islamic Declaration on Global Climate Change, and in Declaration on Ethical Principles in Relation to Climate Change. As a theoretical framework, the study uses specifically selected features of Mikael Stenmark’s Miljöetik och miljövård, and of Ibrahim Özdemir’s The Ethical Dimension of Human Attitude Towards Nature: a Muslim Perspective. The material has been divided into the following four categories: Values, Humanity, Lifestyle, and Relations. The material has then been analyzed by using a qualitative content analysis. The results of the study show that the Islamic- and the secular-normative environmental ethics share many valuational standpoints, but their differences stem from what they use as the source to legitimize their ethics. The secular environmental ethics puts humanity in the center, whereas the Islamic environmental ethics places God in the center.

    Modernizing the flow of blood: Biomedical technicians, working knowledge and the transformation of Swedish blood centre practices2017In: Social Studies of Science, ISSN 0306-3127, E-ISSN 1460-3659, Vol. 47, no 4, p. 485-510Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The early 1980s saw a paradigm change' in how donated blood was handled and used by blood centres, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. In Sweden, a five-year state-financed R&D programme initiated a swift modernization process, an alleged revolution' of existing blood centre practices. In this article, we use interviews and archival material to analyse the role of female biomedical technicians in this rapid technical and organizational change. In focus is their working knowledge, or savoir-faire, of blood, instruments and techniques. We give a detailed analysis of technicians' embrained and embodied skills to create safety in blood and its representations, handle contingencies and invent new procedures and techniques. These transformations are analysed as sociomaterial entanglements, where the doing and undoing of gender, sociomaterial practices, hierarchies of authority and expertise, and emotions are intertwined.
