    On The Moral Psychology and Normative Force Of Aesthetic Reasons2017In: Estetika, ISSN 0014-1291, Vol. 54, no 1, p. 20-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the way in which we adduce reasons in support of our aesthetic judgements. We examine the seemingly question-begging nature of that process, such that any aesthetic quality we adduce as a reason can be found compelling qua reason for a particular judgement if and only if that judgement is already assented to. We then analyse this phenomenon in the parallel contexts of gustatory taste and friendship, where the differences are understood to lie primarily with differences in the normative force of reasons held in support of gustatory judgements, aesthetic judgements, and personal friendships. While some question-begging obtains in all cases, in the latter we can begin to see that friendship can be justified with reference to its contribution to the good of ourselves. This is explored further in connection with the way in which examining our reasons for being friends with people is actually productive and generative of that friendship. Our conclusion is that while the giving of reasons for aesthetic judgements is still subject to a certain question-begging, those judgements acquire a powerful normative force in cultural contexts where it can be seen that assenting to them constitutes the realization of our good as individuals.

    Abstract [en]

    With its exotic appearance and depictions in ancient Egyptian art and literature, the curved sword referred to as ’khopesh’ has been the source of much speculation. While its actual use as a weapon of war is debated, as is its level of effectiveness, there can be no doubt that it was a highly prestigious symbol of power. This essay aims to shed light on not only the practical aspects of such a weapon but also to delve into the cultural and in particular royal ideological roles. This is achieved through studying textual sources, representations in art and preserved examples of the weapon. Comparisons will also be made with other contemporary bladed weapons in Egypt and its vicinity. Aspects of metallurgy which allows for the making of swords will also be touched upon.

    Old School vs. New School: Comparing Transition-Based Parsers with and without Neural Network Enhancement2017In: Proceedings of the 15th Treebanks and Linguistic Theories Workshop (TLT), 2017, p. 99-110Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we attempt a comparison between "new school" transition-based parsers that use neural networks and their classical "old school" coun-terpart. We carry out experiments on treebanks from the Universal Depen-dencies project. To facilitate the comparison and analysis of results, we onlywork on a subset of those treebanks. However, we carefully select this sub-set in the hope to have results that are representative for the whole set oftreebanks. We select two parsers that are hopefully representative of the twoschools; MaltParser and UDPipe and we look at the impact of training sizeon the two models. We hypothesize that neural network enhanced modelshave a steeper learning curve with increased training size. We observe, how-ever, that, contrary to expectations, neural network enhanced models needonly a small amount of training data to outperform the classical models butthe learning curves of both models increase at a similar pace after that. Wecarry out an error analysis on the development sets parsed by the two sys-tems and observe that overall MaltParser suffers more than UDPipe fromlonger dependencies. We observe that MaltParser is only marginally betterthan UDPipe on a restricted set of short dependencies.

    Är den "goda döden" god?: En argumentationsanalys av eutanasidebatten i Läkartidningen mellan åren 2006-20162017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Eutanasidebatten pågår i Sverige likaväl som utomlands. Debatten förs med både explicita och implicita etiska fotavtryck och det finns fall som uppmärksammats i media där personer sökt sig utomlands för att erhålla eutanasi, enskilda riksdagsledamöter har motionerat i frågan, eutanasi är föremål för en etisk debatt i forskarsamhället såväl som inom läkarkåren. Huvudsakligen är det läkarassisterad eutanasi i någon form det handlar om. Med andra ord är det en läkare eller annan vårdpersonal som skall administrera detta. Därför är läkarna en central intressent i eutanasifrågan och därför är diskussionen inom kåren av intresse att analysera. Och det är detta som uppsatsen gör. Arbetet analyserar eutanasidebatten i Läkartidningen mellan åren 2006-2016 och har tre syften: för det första att undersöka debattens argument och vilka normativa etiska uppfattningar som ligger till grund för dessa ståndpunkter; vidare att även kritiskt granska delar av argumentationen och avslutningsvis vill arbetet också pröva en egen ståndpunkt i eutanasifrågan.

    The American Serialization of Lord Jim2017In: Journal of European Periodical Studies, ISSN 1684-0186, E-ISSN 1541-4329, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 3-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay presents the discovery of the American serialization of Joseph Conrad’s Lord Jim in New York’s Evening Telegramin 1903. This ‘lost’ serialization, it argues, invites a new perspective on Conrad’s early career by foregrounding the role of newspaper serialization and syndication in establishing his literary standing. After surveying the principal differences in the respective reading experiences of the periodical versus the book, it concludes by proposing that the prominence of women among Conrad’s first audiences requires us to reassess the basis for his success in North America and elsewhere.

    'I'm from Barcelona': Boundaries and Transformations Between Catalan and Spanish Identities2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the last decade or so, the multiple political factions in Catalonia have adopted pro-independence initiatives in their platforms following the 2008 financial crisis. Catalonia’s position as representing a minority culture in the face of the centralized administration of Madrid presents a contentious history of fighting for the right ‘to be’, culminating in what today is viewed by many as an identity crisis.             

    Drawing on fieldwork conducted in Barcelona, this thesis examines how informants construct and transform their socio-cultural identities in the framework of the independence movement in Catalonia. It places informants’ experiences in the theoretical realm of ethnic boundaries, analyzing central issues of Catalan language normalization vis à vis the historical imposition of Spanish as the national language. These themes are broadened in light of the recent upsurge of Catalan secession, and explores identity politics within the background of Spanish and Catalan nationalisms.

    Polish Catholics In Mälaren Valley: Swedification And Resistance2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this ethnographic study, I explore the ways, in which the engagement of Polish Catholics with Swedish society generates both adaptation and resistance. The thesis begins with an overview of the history of the Swedish Catholic Church and notes how Poles became one of the most numerous immigrant groups in Sweden during past decades. I then make use of fifteen in-depth interviews along with more than twenty sessions of observation in a Polish milieu in the Mälaren Valley. Polish Catholics often consider themselves, as one put it, as "weird creatures" in Sweden, not only for being a religious minority, but also due to conflicts between Catholic moral teachings and prevailing modern liberal views in Swedish society. Also, interviewees tend to blame Sweden for weakening the religiosity of their compatriots. Catholicism often presents particular challenges for the adaptation and integration of Poles, especially teenagers, who are, as one out it, seen "like freaks here". Also notable is the controversial stance of parishioners and the clergy on gender questions. While many laity see feminism as a threat, some priests assert that "feminism and Catholicism have so much in common". Among other challenges for the religious life of Poles in Sweden are consumerism, which leads to the formulation "prosperity destroys people" and is seen as a competitor to the church; and the Swedish language, which divides first and second generations. Interviewees also express shared interests with Muslims and solidarity with Orthodox Christians.

    Kulturfrämjande eller läsfrämjande?: En studie i läsfrämjande aktiviteter på två folkbibliotek2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     The purpose of this master’s thesis is to examine how two libraries, Sundbyberg bibliotek and Rinkeby bibliotek,

    work with activities that promote and stimulate reading among children and youths. The main purpose behind

    this study is to examine what kind of activities the libraries offer, how they are received by the children and

    youths participating in them and lastly how the libraries deal with children and youths who are disinterested in

    reading.

    The theoretical base for this study is discourse analysis, which is used to distinguish a structure in the interviews

    with the librarians from the two libraries. Furthermore, research results in the field of activities that promote

    reading among children and youths form a backdrop for the study as well as a framework onto which the

    empirical results are hung.

    The methods used in this study are qualitative interviews and text analysis. One librarian from Sundbyberg

    bibliotek has been interviewed and two librarians from Rinkeby bibliotek. The text analysis was based on policy

    documents, the websites of the respective libraries and lastly the social media where the libraries are active.

    The main results show that the libraries have similar attitudes regarding the importance of reading for children

    and youths. Furthermore, the librarians all showed a wide variety of activities that are intended to stimulate

    reading for children and youths. These activities can be divided into either direct or indirect reading stimulating

    activities. The direct activities deal with reading in a literal sense and books are a clear topic. The indirect activities,

    however, are a way to mediate between the child and the youth, and reading. Instead of having books as a

    topic, these activities are overtly about something else, such as films or playtime for toddlers. Reading is implied

    but never mentioned directly. This division is in place because children and youths are less inclined to participate

    in activities that are overtly about reading since there are a large number of children and youths who do not appreciate

    reading.

    This is a two years master’s thesis in Archive, Library and Museum studies.

    Dative sickness: Aphylogenetic analysis of argument structure evolution in Germanic2017In: Language, ISSN 0097-8507, E-ISSN 1535-0665, Vol. 93, no 1, p. E1-E22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A major argument against the feasibility of reconstructing syntax for proto-stages is the widely discussed lack of directionality of syntactic change. In a recent typology of changes in argument structure constructions based on Germanic (Barodal 2015), several different, yet opposing, changes are reported. These include, among others, processes sometimes called dative sickness, nominative sickness, and accusative sickness. In order to tease apart the roles of the different processes, we have carried out a phylogenetic trait analysis on a predefined data set of twelve predicates found across the Germanic phyla using the MULTISTATE method. This is, as far as we are aware, the first application of the MULTISTATE method (Pagel et al. 2004) in historical syntax. The results clearly favor one of the models, the dative sickness model, over any other model, as this model is the only one that can accurately account for both the observed diversity of case frames and the independently proposed philological reconstructions. Methods of evolutionary trait analysis can be used to model evolutionary paths of argument structure constructions, and they provide the perfect testing ground for hypotheses arrived at through philological reconstruction, based on classical historical-comparative methods.

    Betydelseskapande interpunktion: En studie av två skönlitterära verk riktade till olika åldersgrupper2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Interpunktion är en viktig, men ganska osynlig, del av skriftspråket som bidrar till förståelse och överblick av texter. Denna studie undersöker interpunktionens funktion i två skönlitterära skräckböcker: Färjan, riktad till vuxna, skriven av Mats Strandberg samt Monstret i natten, riktad till barn i åldrarna 6–9 år, skriven av Mats Strandberg och illustrerad av Sofia Falkenhem. Syftet med studien är att dels beskriva interpunktionen i böckerna och dels jämföra dem med varandra. Resultatet visar att interpunktionens funktion i de aktuella böckerna överensstämmer med tidigare studiers resultat, även om vissa skillnader går att finna gällande exempelvis vilka resurser som tillämpas. Vidare visar resultatet att interpunktionens funktion i de båda böckerna skiljer sig åt, då interpunktionen i Färjan är mer varierad och avancerad än den i Monstret i natten.

    Apostolic Succession in the Porvoo Common Statement: Unity through a deeper sense of apostolicity2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A number of ecumenical dialogues have identified apostolic succession as one of the most crucial issues on which the churches need to find a joint understanding in order to achieve the unity of the Church.

    When the Porvoo Common Statement (PCS) was published in 1993, it was regarded by some as an ecumenical breakthrough, because it claimed to have established visible and corporate unity between the Lutheran and Anglican churches of the Nordic-Baltic-British-Irish region through a joint understanding of ecclesiology and apostolic succession. The consensus has been achieved, according to the PCS, through a ‘deeper understanding’ that embraces the churches’ earlier diverse interpretations. In the international debate about the PCS, the claim of a ‘deeper understanding’ as a solution to earlier contradictory interpretations has been both praised and criticised, and has been seen as both possible and impossible.

    This thesis investigates how and why the PCS has been interpreted differently in various contexts, and discerns the arguments used for or against the ecclesiology presented in the PCS. Those arguments are then analysed historically and theologically in order to develop further the comprehension of the ‘deeper understanding’ presented in the PCS and, if possible, to develop the ecclesiology and the notion of apostolic succession described in the PCS.

    Finally, this study investigates how the PCS has been implemented in the churches that have signed the Porvoo Declaration and in the Porvoo Communion as a whole.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses affinities between Christian political theology and the Anarcho-primitivistcritique of civilization. It is argued that there is a significant constructive potential in such a critique, especially in relation to the current political and societal situation, and that the critique to a great extent is compatible with traditional Christianity. It is further argued that this constructive potential, while currently hampered, can be effectively unlocked in relation to a proper theological anchoring of Anarcho-primitivism. It is then maintained that such an anchoring could most plausiblybe provided by the Abrahamic traditions, and especially the Christian, due to the particular compatibility between Anarcho-primitivism and Christianity.

    Death and the Self: A Metaphysical Investigation of the Rationality of Afterlife Beliefs in the Contemporary Intellectual Climate2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation's purpose is to test the hypothesis that beliefs in the possibility of post-mortem survival can be rationally held within the context of the contemporary scientific and philosophical environment. In terms of criteria of rationality, a basic evidentialism is assumed, such that propositions which are sufficiently supported by the available evidence can be rationally held. With regard to the compatibility with contemporary science and philosophy, it follows as a further criterion that the relevant evidence must be satisfactorily anchored within the framework of these traditions.

    The relevant evidence concerns two levels. First, the basic level of the conceptual coherence of afterlife beliefs is addressed, so that the logical possibility of post-mortem survival can be established. Secondly, the viability of the metaphysics which are implied in the support of the logical possibility (i.e. the metaphysics needed to actualize post-mortem survival) is defended, establishing the metaphysical possibility of post-mortem survival. At this stage, reductive physicalism, which is the only position that effectively undermines post-mortem survival, is criticized, and the problem of interaction which burdens several of the survival-enabling ontologies is addressed.

    As for the criterion of scientific compatibility, it is further shown that contemporary physics are compatible with the survival-enabling metaphysics, and that contemporary physics can be argued to provide a moderate positive relevance with regard to these positions.

    The conclusion drawn is that belief in the possibility of post-mortem survival is not only rationally permissible within the framework of contemporary science and philosophy, but also rationally obligatory, i.e. that this possibility cannot rationally be denied with regard to the reviewed evidence.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the relationship between literature and philosophy, with special regards to how literature can contribute to deepen the understanding in philosophical matters. This is executed by a comparison between how a work of fiction, versus works of philosophy, can tackle the issue of personhood. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is being compared with philosopher Lynne Rudder Baker’s Persons and Bodies and Jacques Maritain’s The Person and the Common Good in order to map out how literature can contribute to the philosophical discourse regarding personhood. The paper finalizes that the main character in Frankenstein, “the monster” displays several issues that may show up when trying to define what it means to be a person, and where the line is to be drawn between a person and a non-person. The paper thus serves a two-folded purpose: to expand and challenge the traditional philosophical methodology, and find new understanding within the subject of personhood.

    Embracing the Future: The Church of Sweden in Continuous Reformation2017In: Journal of The European Society of Women in Theological Research, ISSN 1783-2454, E-ISSN 1783-2446, ISSN 1783-2454, Vol. 25, p. 67-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The whole world followed the events in Lund, Sweden, on October 31, 2016, when for the first time a joint ecumenical commemoration of the Reformation took place between the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and the Roman-Catholic Church. A photo distributed worldwide, shows Pope Francis and the Archbishop of the Church of Sweden, Antje Jackelén, embracing each other. The photo contains both hope and tension. The Church of Sweden tries to balance the tension between its heritage as ecumenical bridgebuilder, launched already by Archbishop Nathan Söderblom a hundred years ago, and its pioneering role with regard to issues of gender and sexuality. In the article these seemingly contradictory roles is set into a wider context of the journey Sweden has made from the time of the Lutheran reformation up to the present. A uniform society characterized by one people and one Christian faith, has gradually transformed into a society where faith is a voluntary option. The former state church faces new demands in handling religious as well as cultural diversities. Leadership is increasingly equally shared between women and men. The Church of Sweden holds all these tensions together through the approach launched on the official website of a church in constant need of reform.

    The gender order of prophetic diaconia2017In: Diaconia. Journal for the Study of Christian Social Practice, ISSN 1869-3261, E-ISSN 2196-9027, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 38-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article starts from a growing ecumenical consensus on the importance of prophetic diaconia in relation to the global challenges of the 21st century. The specific question addressed concerns how the churches can lay a better foundation for prophetic diaconia by discarding their traditional gender structure. The more churches free themselves from the patriarchal aspects of their traditions, the more credible they become as social critics – and the more they are free to do their work for the world’s healing. The article builds on a master’s thesis in educational management on deacons as the whistle-blowers of the Church, a role which is coded as female and related to a predominantly male-coded resistance, questioning, and criticism. The article argues that this shows a hitherto neglected area of research that deserves more extensive studies in the future.Read More: http://www.vr-elibrary.de/doi/10.13109/diac.2017.8.1.38#.We3vlVu0Opo

    Säger man på båda sätt/sätten?: En studie av substantivets speciesform i nominalfraser med båda eller vardera som inledande attribut2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Enligt rådande normer ska det substantiviska huvudordet i nominalfraser som inleds med båda eller vardera stå i bestämd form. Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka om det verkar pågå en förändring vad gäller de här konstruktionerna, och vilka principer som i så fall verkar styra förändringen. Min hypotes är att utvecklingen går mot en högre acceptans av substantiv i obestämd form i dessa fraser, och att meningens formalitetsgrad och det kontextuella eller naturliga parförhållandet för huvudordets referenter skulle kunna vara faktorer som påverkar språkkänslan.

    Genom en elektronisk enkät har jag samlat in bedömningar från informanter i tre olika åldersgrupper, 20–30 år, 50–60 år och 70 år eller äldre, av meningspar innehållande konstruktionerna med båda och vardera, där det substantiviska huvudordets speciesform var det enda som skilde meningarna i paret åt. Resultatet visade att det med stor sannolikhet håller på att ske en förändring med båda konstruktionerna mot en högre acceptans av och preferens för obestämd form av substantivet efter båda och vardera, varav förändringen för vardera är längst gången. Formalitet verkar spela roll för de yngre när det kommer till meningarna med båda och för de äldre när det kommer till meningarna med vardera. I båda fallen innebär ökad formalitetsgrad högre acceptans av obestämd form.
