    Abstract [en]

    “In Sweden, Men Can Have It All”—in 2010 this intriguing claim headlined an article in The New York Times on parental leave in Sweden.1 Swedish men’s access to family life in general, and to their children in particular, has been the focus of a range of discourses especially since the 1990s, and the specific history of parental politics in Sweden—especially the parental leave system—is a significant factor behind the increasing visibility of fathers in this national context.2 Fathers often hold center stage in the current media debates about parenthood, as well as in Scandinavian gender studies research, where studies on “new fathers” are much more common than studies of (new) mothers.3 While discourses on fathers have specific inflections in the Swedish papa-political context, the expanding interest is also part of an international—not least Anglo-Saxon—trend of investigating and “redefining” fatherhood, problematizing meanings of fatherhood in nonpatriarchal or postpatriarchal familial contexts, and investigating the (gap between) norms or ideals on the one hand and practices or lived experiences on the other.4

    Lite närmare mänskligheten: Deltagande och empowerment på ett lokalt museum2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is based on a case study of a local museum that challenges the idea of what a museum constitutes today. The museum elaborates on the idea of considering the visitor as a participant and examines the possibility of contributing to empowerment among the local community. The aim of this thesis is to analyze the museum's external work and its participatory elements in a place characterized by migration and marginalization, and thereby achieve a deeper knowledge of the relationship between the museum and its visitors.

    The study is conducted through qualitative methods, such as participatory observation and interviews with museum staff and museum visitors, and a quantitative survey among local residents. The thesis' theoretical framework consists of the participatory museum perspective and theoretical concepts such as empowerment, community and place. Using these concepts, the character of the museum's external work and its participatory elements are analyzed regarding the issues of participation, empowerment and the social role of the museum. The analysis also include the site's demographic aspects in relation to the museum and what kind of challenges these imply. In addition, the museum's spatial character and its location is discussed.

    The result shows that the museum is a participatory museum that experiences the challenges associated with this perspective. The conclusion highlights the importance of clearly determining what kind of participation the work is based on. Furthermore, the result shows that the museum is part of a process whereby the participants are allocated resources, skills, authority and motivation. Thus, the conclusion is that the museum contributes to the empowerment among its visitors. The result also demonstrates several challenges of working in an area characterized by migration and marginalization. These challenges relate to the museum's role as a help centre, a discontinuity among the participants and cultural aspects. The conclusion is that these conditions require the museum to use other methods than the traditional museum, such as formative evaluation, outreach programs, culture specific knowledge and good insight into their communities.

    This is a two years master's thesis in Museum and Cultural Heritage Studies.

    Döden i souvenirbutiken: Kvarlevor som kult och kuriosa2013Ingår i: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, nr 2, s. 20-26Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Death in the souvenir shop: Mortal remains as cult and curiosities

    Museums, heritage production and Christian relics all deal with and are built on death in various aspects. Transferring an everyday object into the museum sphere can be regarded as an intentional death, a rebirth to a new identity and a new context. Relics are the byproducts of death, given a new life as subject to religious veneration. When inscribed in yet another context of heritage, musealisation and tourism, they can once again be regarded as dead and resurrected to a new life and identity. When saintly bones journey from human life through death, sacredness, political power and tourism, to something for sale in the souvenir shop, is it layer upon layer of death – or an endless chain of resurrections and new lives?

    How do Museums Affect Sacredness?: Three Suggested Models2019Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses what happens when religion in the shape of objects imbued with religious meaning is transformed into cultural heritage, suggesting three models to discuss its consequences for museums.The first model builds on the museum as a killing of previous identities, and the objects as provided with new identities as museum objects. A second model is the hybrid identity, where a museum object can possess several identities simultaneously, depending on the eyes of the beholder: sacredness, art object, or evidence of history. The third model is defined by the uses of objects. Distinguishing between cultual use and cultural use is crucial here. I argue that these different approaches to sacred objects in museum pose different museological challenges and possibilities, and also ascribes different agencies to museum staff as well as to the visitors.

    Kulturarv: ikon för en sekulariserad tid2006Ingår i: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, Vol. 15, nr 3, s. 67-76Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how the term 'holiness' can be applied to the discussion about cultural heritage, and raises the question whether cultural heritage might even have substituted institutionalized religion as an object of devotion in a secularized society. A comparison between the religious field and the heritage field is performed by studying two specific examples, the Trinity icon by Andrej Rublev and the medieval wall surrounding the city of Visby, Sweden. Different aspects of these examples are examined, such as Creating distance - creating intimacy; Pedagogical example - The real thing; Who is the subject, who's zoomin' who?; The bless and to petrify; Between preservation and use, form and function. The parallells between the religious field and the heritage field end up in a conclusion that 'holiness' needs to be re-introduced as a factor - not least in a time and society of increasing cultural diversity.

    Euthanized sacredness, in the beholder’s eye, or a multi-tool for shifting needs? Three suggested models to discuss how museums affect sacredness. Abstract for paper for the ICOFOM 41st symposium Museology and the sacred Tehran, 15-19 October 2018. Aimed for the analysis plan Museality-heritage-sacred. by Helena Wangefelt Ström, PhD candidate in Museology, Umeå University (Sweden). helena.wangefelt.strom@umu.se

    What happens when religion in the shape of objects imbued with religious meaning is transformed into cultural heritage? What values are added, what are lost, and who is the performing agent? These questions concern what museums do to objects connected to religion, calling for a meditated use of terms such as holy, sacred, religious, and spiritual (all employed in recent research and policy documents by, for example, UNESCO, while in many cases as interchangeable). This paper suggests three models to understand the processes of heritagisation of religion and the factors and agents involved, starting from a historical background in European, in particular Italian, Early Modernity. A frequently used scholarly model depicts the museum as a killing of previous identities, and the objects as provided with entirely new identities, and lives, as museum objects. This view brings on dramatic effects for sacred objects, how they are handled and narrated in the museum, and possibly on how they are viewed by the visitors. The use or not of information signs before sacred objects in museums is an aspect on this matter. The second model is the hybrid identity, where a museum object can be said to possess two authentic identities simultaneously, depending on the views and beliefs of the beholder: authentic sacredness, or authentic art object and evidence of history. This view may fit well with the focus on the individual in our time. The third model presented is based on the two previous ones, and suggests a hybridity not only in identities or living/dead, but defined by the uses of the objects. Even musealized objects can, as in the cases of religious treasuries or of certain religious images in museums, shift identity between museum object, object of devotion (to be carried in processions or used in rituals), legitimization symbol (bishops’ ordinations etc), and, historically, as a monetary reserve to be sold if needed. The identity of the object shifts, also in practice of being looked at behind glass or being used and touched, depending on the use currently applied to it. A distinction between cultual use and cultural use is relevant for this model. I argue that these different approaches to sacred objects in museum pose different museological challenges and possibilities, and also ascribes different agencies to museum staff as well as to the visitors.

    Omne malum ab Aquilone: images of the evil North in early modern Italy and their impact on cross-religious encounters2018Ingår i: Visions of North in premodern Europe / [ed] Dolly Jørgensen and Virginia Langum, Turnhout: Brepols , 2018, s. 265-286Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Destructive, infertile, intellectually inferior, and the home of witches and werewolves. A northern visitor to southern Europe in the early modern period travelled — willingly or not — into a world imbued with forceful associations related to the North that were well estab- lished, historically rooted, and alive in the minds of the people in the South. These concepts, mythological images, and archetypes were well known also by the northerners themselves, and were, contrary to what one might expect, not merely a yoke of negative expectations but also in some cases cleverly used to enhance certain aspects of a constructed image or a desired reputation. This article wishes to bring forth some of these images, and give examples of how they were used and affected in particular the religious relations between North and South in the post-Reformation period.

    Frihetens sammanhang: Barn, föräldrar och normalitet ur ett livsåskådningsperspektiv2012Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Är vi så fria som vi vill tro? Vad är det som styr och begränsar våra liv i en kultur som hyllar ideal som frihet och självförverkligande? Hur kommer det sig att barnföräldrar känner sig djupt kluvna mellan livet med barnen och yrkesliv, fritid och möjligheter till egen tid? Och vilka budskap skickar vi till våra barn genom att leva och förmedla ideal som frihet, självständighet och självförverkligande?

     

    I den här boken diskuteras spänningen mellan frihet och beroende med utgångspunkt i intervjuer med barnföräldrar och skolpersonal. Tesen är att den frihet vi hyllar i vår kultur begränsas av en mängd materiella och kulturella faktorer. Och det är speciellt i livet med barn som vårt beroende av andra människor och av konkreta omständigheter blir tydligt. Tanken framförs att självklara föreställningarna, koder och praktiker i vardagslivet fungerar närmast som en ersättningsreligion.

     

    De självklarheter och den krympande normalitet som omger och formar barn och föräldraskap granskas särskilt. Resultaten pekar på flera konkreta problem med betydelse för både vuxnas och barns vardag och välbefinnande. Inte minst viktig är diskussion om hur anpassningen till normaliteten som ersättningsreligion kan krympa barns livsvärld och riskera lämna dem utan vägledning – i existentiell tomhet.

    Chrysoloras’ Erotemata, and the evolution of grammatical descriptions2018Ingår i: Beiträge zur Geschichte der Sprachwissenschaft, ISSN 0939-2815, Vol. 1, s. 33-56Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an analysis of the categorisation of Greek nominals in Greek grammatical theory, and in particular the advances made by late 14th century Byzantine scholars.

    The analysis concerns the process by which the canones of Theodosius Alexandrinus, the 56 in- flectional categories described in the 4th century CE, came to be condensed into a mere ten, in the grammar Erotemata by Manuel Chrysoloras (1355–1415), and considers Chrysoloras’ achievement as part of the larger scholarly context in Constantinopel at the end of 14th century.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this master’s thesis is to investigate how study environments in academic libraries are designed to serve the current conditions and requirements that these libraries are facing today. The study’s intention is to function as a basis on how academic libraries can plan and upgrade their physical environments to suit modern uses and needs. The main focus is to examine how three Swedish academic libraries; the Carolina Library, the Frescati Library and Södertörn University Library; have been built, renovated and improved during the last ten years while analyzing overall tendencies and trends in new study environments. The investigation was conducted as a case study based on interviews, observations and text studies. The thesis is based on a posthumanist view on environments and artefacts as co-creators of the physical setting while architecture theories about function, form and factors that affects the physical environment were used to analyse the empirical material.

    The study shows that the university library’s physical environment has evolved from mainly having served as a repository for documents to its current primary purpose as a work place and learning environment for university students. Today’s library environment function as a place for individual study, group work, information seeking and contemplation as well as a social space for meetings and socializing. The university library’s expanded role as a social space, the progress in information technology and changed ways of studying have all had a large impact on the university library and has thus greatly influenced the modern library environment. The need for group study spaces has increased during the last years while individual study spaces in quiet areas continue to be in high demand. Informal lounge areas are now frequently incorporated in library settings as well as open areas that creates a feeling of space and light. These spaces are also highly functional in increasing the flexibility of the premises. Flexibility, comfort and functionality are key aspects to take into account when designing new library environments. This can be done by integrating flexible solutions, such as movable walls and furniture, but also through a variation of study spaces’ furniture and placement. Comfort is found to be of major importance for a pleasant study environment and more so than external aesthetics.

    This is a two years master’s thesis in Library and Information Science.

    "Jag tycker det är sorgligt att höra hur Sandra vräker i sig ostbågar": En textanalys av teveprogrammet Lyxfällans konstruktion av klass2014Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats analyseras konstruktionen av klass i teveprogrammet Lyxfällan. Metoden som ligger till grund för studien är textanalys med inriktning på narrativ. Genom att studera hur de medverkande i programmet, både deltagarna och programlederande, porträtteras har jag analyserat klasskonstruktioner med fokus på kroppslighet. Centrala teoretiska angreppssätt har varit Beverly Skeggs respektabilitetsteori och Robyn Longhursts teori om kroppskontroll. Kroppen har en central roll i subjektsskapandet då kroppen är konstant närvarande, och i min uppsats blir kroppen ett sätt att uttrycka och avspegla av klassidentitet. De deltagande porträtteras i kontrast till programledarna, vilket är bärande för konstruktionen av klass. Deltagarnas okontrollerade ekonomi och brist på måttfullhet iscensätts också i de kroppsliga framställningarna och är förankrade i synen på arbetarklass, medan programledarnas känslostruktur och kroppsliga porträtteringar visar på ett medelklassideal. Vad som också synliggörs i analysen är deltagarnas strävan efter att kunna identifiera sig som medelklass genom konsumtion. För vissa av de kvinnliga deltagarna blir konsumtion som aspirerar normativ femininitet, vilket i sin tur är förankrad i ett medelklassideal, extra viktigt.

    The article deals with the paradox of a modern-day phenomenon: that wood, which represents authenticity and sustainable development, is communicated via visual media that prevent the tangible experience of physically handling wood.

    One crucial question is the consequences this may have for the built environment and cultural heritage of wood. The article argues that visual representations of wood influence how real wood is handled, and that this cultural use of wood in an abstract sense influences our values when making decisions about historic timber buildings. In current architecture, bare wood often takes the form of a decorative surface with no structural purpose, used only to convey various notions of wood. We must avoid taking these notions for granted, and be more aware of their effects and how they are used.

    To understand this process we may hypothesize that a change in what wood represents has taken place in the post-industrial era. The study uses historical perspectives to identify 20th-century ideas and concepts of wood, showing that perceptions of wood changed through the rational ideas of modernity, which made wood anonymous and marginalized. The article sug- gests that over recent decades wood has devel- oped an identity as a unique, living material. Several trees estimated to be more than a thou- sand years old have received media attention, which shows the ability of trees to encapsulate time. These trees are often given names, such as Adonis in Bosnia for example, which is known as “Europe’s oldest living inhabitant.” Draw- ing attention to unique aspects of trees follows current advertising trends, where products and brands are given identities too.

    The development of dendrochronology has also lent a historical dimension to wood. This aspect of time is enhanced by the protracted process of tree growth, making wood a suitable material for the slow craft movement and hip- ster culture.

    One contribution to the animate natural- ness of wood is the rapid development of digi- tal photography, which allows professional and amateur photographers alike to produce high- quality pictures. Distributing images over social media takes place smoothly and quickly via the Internet. Thus wood can be shown in high-reso- lution, both in print and digital form, making it look freshly hewn and vivid.

    By analysing contemporary media, which presents wood in various cultural contexts, we can identify how notions of sustainable devel- opment and authenticity are conveyed. This paradoxical handling of wood without actually touching it shows that wood possesses a cultural strength that extends far beyond its structural and practical uses.

    As an example the article discusses the Swed- ish medieval church at Södra Råda in Västergöt- land. After the building was destroyed by fire in 2001, it was decided to rebuild the church using medieval techniques. The reconstruction became a media success that spread via the In- ternet. Paradoxically, the virtual version of Södra Råda became more real to the public than the physical church. This came about by presenting painstaking woodworking skills as the church rose slowly, like a phoenix from the ashes. The process was documented and spread via the In- ternet and elsewhere.

    To conclude, virtual and mediated wood, consumed visually, expresses a strong yet underrated cultural discourse. With greater aware- ness, virtual wood can become a resource in the struggle to preserve historic timber buildings, which are often threatened today by globalised economic progress, in which cities compete by building landmark architecture. Rational and logical arguments, picked from the modernist agenda of the 20th-century, are often used to legitimise this form of redevelopment. In this context it is hard to do justice to historic timber buildings, given that they are viewed and discussed in terms of values created by modernity. The results of the study show how wood is culturally impregnated with new and varied meanings. Broadly, the post-industrial, irrational use of wood may be seen as rehabilitating a ma- terial damaged by the rationalist forces of mo- dernity. In handicrafts too, wood is appearing as an unruly queer material, carved and freely cut.

    Is a language taking shape here, stemming from the wood itself?

    Communicating in the Diverse German Workplace: An Empirical Study of Intercultural Competence from German and Foreign Employees’ Perspectives2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Since today’s workplace is becoming more and more culturally diverse, personnel intercultural communication competence (ICC) has grown in great importance in many organizations. In spite of its significance, little empirical research on intercultural competence in the real workplace has been conducted. The study examines perspectives of German and foreign employees on intercultural competence according to personal experiences in the culturally diverse workplace in Germany. Views on general aspects of intercultural competence from the two groups are compared. The results show different views between host-cultural and foreign employees on ICC aspects and the competence that is seen relatively crucial in collective views.

    You can’t eat the sweet with the paper on: An anthropological study of perceptions of HIV and HIV prevention among Xhosa youth in Cape Town, South Africa2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 30 poäng / 45 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    South Africa has the biggest HIV epidemic in the world and the HIV rates among youth are especially alarming. In 2016 there were 110 000 new cases of HIV among 15 to 24-year-olds.

    The aim of this study is to describe and analyse perceptions of HIV and HIV prevention among Xhosa youth in the township of Langa, Cape Town. In order to study this, I focus on the organisation loveLife and their employed peer educators called groundBREAKERs (gBs). To gain knowledge on what fuels the HIV epidemic in this setting I will examine their thoughts and notions of HIV/AIDS, sexuality and sexual behaviour in relation to the information that is available to them. Examining the socio-cultural context of HIV/AIDS is important to understand the spread and why HIV is not declining sufficiently in response to HIV preventative efforts.

    This thesis is based on ten weeks of fieldwork at loveLife’s Y-Centre in Langa. The material was gathered through semi-structured interviews and participant observation. To analyse the drivers for the spread of HIV among Xhosa youth an analytical tool of gender roles, with a main focus on masculinity, has been utilized.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this master’s thesis was to study literacy practices in a reading group of nine women discussing fiction in Swedish sign language. The following research questions were examined: What patterns of action have taken form in this practice and what meaning is attributed to these patterns? How can this reading group be understood in the light of Päivi Fredäng’s research on identity and cultural changes in the Swedish Deaf world? How do the participants handle using two different languages and modalities during the discussions, and to what extent can this be understood using Mary Louise Pratts concept contact zone? Finally, the last question aims to explore the reasons behind the very scarce number of reading groups in Sweden discussing fiction in sign language.

    An ethnographic study was conducted through one participant observation and three semi-structured interviews face to face recorded on camera, one email interview and one recorded phone interview. The interviews in sign language were translated into written Swedish.

    What Peplow terms a ‘mimetic’ reading practice was the most dominant way of discussing literature, whereas thematic or synthetic reading practices were less frequent.  The participants found that the reading group broadened their reading habits and that the discussions sometimes had bibliotherapeutic elements. They often discussed issues related to the oppression of women whereas questions related to Deaf people and sign language were not often discussed. The reading group could be understood in the light of the changes that the Swedish Deaf world, and society at large have gone through over the last decades. The collective Deaf identity is more frequently based on shared values concerning sign language rather than ideological standpoints. More individualized perspectives and interest-based networks based on sign language become more common. This falls under what Fredäng describes as co-culture where deafness loses its superior position in the identity.

    The participants’ audiological and linguistic backgrounds were diverse, only around half of them had Swedish sign language as their first language. The literacy practices were to a great extent influenced by the diversity concerning the participants’ backgrounds. Some of the informants said that one main reason for joining was to improve their skills in sign language. To others, the reading group seemed to strengthen their skills in written Swedish. One aspect of the literacy practices of this reading group was language preservation, where the participants helped each other to a more ‘pure’ sign language.

    Using the theoretical framework developed in New Literacy Studies, the lack of reading groups discussing fiction in sign language could be understood as a result of the literacy practices used in the Swedish Deaf education system that followed the Milan Conference that took place in 1880. The conference led to the banning of sign language in favour of oral methods. Contemporary literacy practices in the Swedish Deaf world can be traced back to these practices in the education system. Further research is needed to study literacy practices among Deaf people in Sweden, for example among younger generations that have taken part of a bi-lingual education. This is a two years master’s thesis in Library and Information Science.

    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the situation for archivists within the context of e-government in three Swedish authorities. The discussions that are brought up concern the archivists role, professional development and the perspective of information in the context of e-government. Since the purpose with this thesis was mainly concerning the situation for the archivists, the method chosen was a qualitative research method, and it was used in combination with interviews with the archivists at the chosen authorities.

    The results show that the archivists within the examined authorities are seen as experts on information management and legislation surrounding it. Problems connected to e-government are that they face prejudice about their capability concerning new technology and digital information. This problem has been handled differently within the authorities, change of official titles has been one tactic.

    Their tasks and professional development have been slightly changed as they are working in a higher capacity ahead of the information being created. The change that can be seen in the context of e-government is that archivists are being more visible within their work places, which can be correlated to the e-government that encourage team work and collaborations to create an efficient and accessible authority. What this means for the archivists is that they can use these collaborations to further their own projects and tasks within the organisation in a better way.

    Contrary to the belief that archivists can only manage information on paper the participants in this research prove they have adopted well to the way of e-government partly through the Record Continuum Model. They are aware about the different perspectives necessary for handling the new ways of structuring and seeing information, which became clear with the development and structure of e-archives within two of the authorities and the preparation for being connected for the third.

    Finally, this thesis shows that archivists are beginning to be able to compete with other departments and professions on the same terms and that they are starting to find their own place within the area of IT and information management.

    This is a two years master's thesis in archival science.

    ”Betra er að gjöra sér hjálpvænlegar en hryggvar innbyrlingar.”: Úr bréfum Jóns Ólafssonar (1705–1779) og Eggerts Ólafssonar (1726–1768) á árunum 1760–68.2013Ingår i: Gripla, ISSN 1018-5011, E-ISSN 2351-4264, Vol. 24, s. 121-171Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The article presents an edition of the private correspondence between Jón Ólafsson from Grunnavík (1705–1779) and Eggert Ólafsson (1726–1768), complete with commentary and a short introduction. Jón’s letters are preserved in manuscript, notably in AM 996 4to, whose text is published here for the first time; Eggert’s letters were first printed in the journal Andvari in 1874. Jón Ólafsson is now best known as Árni Magnússon’s scribe in Copenhagen, famously parodied in Halldór Laxness’s novel Iceland’s Bell as the gauche and comic Jón Grindvicensis; Eggert, on the other hand, has long been recognized as an accomplished poet and a pioneering figure in the Icelandic Enlightenment. In fact, the two men were good friends and had much in common. Both were interested in poetry, Icelandic studies, natural science and the future of their native land. In the letters they discuss their lot in life, their interests and hopes, and also the latest news from home and abroad. We learn of Jón’s unequivocal wish that Eggert succeed him as a leading figure in Icelandic studies. Both men had every reason to assume that Eggert had a long life ahead of him, but, in the event, Jón’s last letter to his friend may well have gone unread, for Eggert drowned in Breiðafjörður just a few days later.

    Abstract [en]

    This study is a comparative study of the occurrence and function of information literacy in the curricula of the Swedish and Bavarian Gymnasium and investigates the occurrence of the term ”information literacy” and shows through what other linguistic means the notion of information literacy is expressed in the curricula. The study also wishes to analyze how the notion of information literacy manifests itself in the different school systems. Relevant textual passages of both curricula are compared to each other through the theoretic lens of Bruce’s phenomenographic model of information literacy. This study shows that although the term of ”information literacy” is absent in the analyzed texts several other terms are used in both curricula to express similar notions.

    The study further shows that although all seven of Bruce’s conceptions of information literacy are represented in the curricula some major differences exist between the two educational systems. Thus the analysis shows differences in the use of information technology which in the Swedish curriculum is seen as an educational goal in the individual subjects whereas according to the Bavarian curriculum training in the use of information technology takes place in the subject of Informatik. Other differences concerning information literacy are shown through the notion of the control concept. Here it is shown that in the Bavarian curriculum emphasis has been put on the training of the memory capacity of the student as a form of information organization. Bruce’s wisdom conception is further used to show that the Bavarian curriculum emphasizes the use of subject knowledge for democratic purposes. This is shown most clearly in the syllabi of the humanities to be seen.

    Through the use of Bruce’s conceptions it can also be shown that both in a Swedish and a Bavarian context information retrieval is partly absent in the natural science syllabi, whereas it plays a major part in the syllabi of the humanities. This can be connected to a common lack of faith in the value of information retrieval in the natural sciences. This is a two years master’s thesis in library and information science.
