Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to provide new understanding of teachers’ and immigrant students’ collaboration and identity work in a school context. Linguistic discourse analysis of immigrant student presentations of teachers’ different roles in a school context was based on empirical sequences from interviews in previously published qualitative analyses. The analysis was carried out with the help of linguistic discourse and previous research on the phenomena of ‘individual needs’, ‘dilemmas’, and ‘cooperation’. Analytical findings with the following themes are presented: (1) discursive presentation of disinterested and disrespected teachers, and (2) discursive presentation of active and strategic teachers. The discursive presentations of disinterested and disrespected teachers, and active and strategic teachers, painting a rhetorically charged picture of major challenges involved in teachers’ practical work with immigrant students. Implicit in these linguistic discursive representations is the portrayal of school teachers as both incompetent and competent actors, and students as competent actors. In this way, representations concerning school practice become a fundamental dimension in the creation and re-creation of students’ personal identities and teachers’ professional identities. Immigrant students occasionally create an interactive distance from categories upon which they depend in different ways and that are linked to the school context. Their identities are brought to the fore and preserved through both the distinction in relation to others and interactions with others (i.e., teachers, other students, and parents). The study provides an indication that recognition of identities is an important dimension for successful collaboration and learning in the school context.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to critically analyse intellectual conditions for education pertaining to the empirical and normative knowledge dimensions that can oppose the ideologies of neo-fascism. The analytical basis is a literature review of various studies from the domains of sociology of knowledge, war sociology, social epistemology, and critical pedagogy. The article explains the social need for better-quality public education pertaining to the meaning of political, media, and religious use and misuse of “identitarian concepts” and “identitarian terminology.” The privileged strategies of the political application of referential systems and mechanisms of ‘differentiating’ serve as the epistemic foundation to teach the concepts, terminology, taxonomies, and classifications used to separate people into “ours” and “theirs.” The genocide of Bosnian Bosniaks in the war against the Bosnian-Herzegovinian multicultural society conveys the need to create peaceful emancipatory identity politics and for a new pedagogy of emancipation of many of the oppressed and disenfranchised who are difficult to explicitly name. Conceptual problems, related to certain obvious paradoxes intrinsic in the politics of the collective representation of citizens after genocide, are linked to these processes.

Abstract [en]

The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (1992–1995) is the historic background of this paper, as produced inthe reports of the United Nations and documents presented during international and national trialsconcerning war crimes committed during period. A literature review forms the analytical basis andcontains various studies from the domains of war sociology, social epistemology, pedagogy ofemancipation and lifelong learning, and sociology of knowledge. The aim of the paper is to analyse: 1)the negative/dark sides of social capital in the Bosnian–Herzegovinian post-genocide society thatemerged because of decades of symbolic and real war and post-war violence against the people in Bosniaand Herzegovina; and 2) the possibility of social development in the direction of a positive/lighter side ofsocial capital, in the sense of legitimising progressive politics of social development based on thefollowing foundations: a) learning peace, coexistence, and reconciliation; b) acknowledgment thatgenocide was carried out during the war and actively denied after the war; c) condemnation of genocide(both during the war and the post-war period); and d) active work to recognise the status of and obtaincompensation for the victims of the genocide (at the social, organisational/institutional, and individuallevels).

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to analyze how and when the professional actors within the Swedish child welfare system portray successful cooperation and determine which discursive patterns are involved in the construction of this phenomenon. The empirical basis for this study is formed by 147 recorded interviews with institution-placed youths, their parents, and different occupational categories within the social services and the Swedish National Board of Institutional Care. Analytical findings with the following themes are presented: (1) coherent vision triad, (2) coherent rhetorically accepted triad, and (3) coherent exclusive triad. The personal interactive aspect of cooperation among professional actors in the care of children is important for successful collaboration. This aspect also appears to be significant for producing and reproducing joint collaboration identities. However, joint collaboration identities and the coherence triad can limit the sphere of cooperation to the entities involved in the care of youths and the juvenile or his/her parents are left out.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to analyse documents produced during trials at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the Section for War Crimes of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina concerning the 1992 war in north-west Bosnia and Herzegovina. The documents construct and reconstruct the categories of victim and perpetrator at a symbolic level. Punishing the offenders for war crimes is a means by which local and international courts attempt to eliminate the ideology on which the atrocities were based. The study interprets the documents as rhetorical warnings to future belligerents. Warfare that targets civilians and lack of respect for human rights are construed as unacceptable. In revealing the scope of war crimes committed during the period, the documents represent an attempt to influence the local and international community. They implicitly define the categories of victim and perpetrator, highlighting the individual and visible punishment to which the latter are subject while implying that their ideology has thereby been eliminated. The documents emphasize the role of individual responsibility in future wars. The presumption is that peer pressure is no excuse for war crimes and that civilians are never to be targeted.

Abstract [en]

This article analyzes the experiences retold by former concentration camp detainees who were placed in  concentration camps like civilians at the beginning of the Bosnian war in the 1990s. The article aims to analyze the narratives of war violence in concentration camp as well as identifying how the perpetrators of war violence and victims are symbolically defined in stories. In these descriptions, the perpetrator is defined as a dangerous, evil, and ideal enemy. He is portrayed as a real and powerful yet alien criminal. When informants emphasize extermination and the systematization of war violence in the camps during the war, they produce and reproduce the image of violence that is organized and conducted on a daily basis. The aim of this verbalb emphasis seems to be that the described acts of violence in the camps, after the war obtain the status of an organized war violence - genocide. By defining the perpetrators of war violence, the interviewed in the study implicitly point out the complementary opposition of the perpetrator - a victim of violence. The victim is presented as pre-war acquaintance, friends and neighbors of the perpetrators of violence. Victim of violence is defined as tired, dying in agony, inferior, de-humanized, stamped and helplessly left to the mercy of the perpetrators of war violence. Leading people to only one primary (deadly) collective identity exists at every place where the “ethnic identity” of people is considered more important than their personal, individual, civic, professional human identity. The merging of ethnonational identities into a completely homogeneous, massive, unique collective identity, which is substantially or (totally) different from some others - perfectly matches reproduction and the creation of new forms of violence.

Abstract [hr]

Ovaj članak analizira prepričana iskustva bivših logoraša koji su kao civili odvedeni u koncentracijske logore početkom rata u Bosni i Hercegovini 1990-ih godina. Cilj je članka analizirati priče o ratnom nasilju u koncentracijskim logorima i identificirati kako se počinitelji ratnog nasilja i žrtve simbolično definiraju u pričama. Priče o nasilju u logoru definiraju počinitelja nasilja kao nekoga tko je opasan, zao, idealan neprijatelj, kao pravi ali udaljeni zločinac. Kad ispitanici u studiji naglašavaju istrebljenje i sustavnost ratnog nasilja u logorima tijekom rata, oni produciraju i reproduciraju sliku nasilja koje je organizirano i koje se provodi svakodnevno. Čini se da je cilj toga verbalnog isticanja da opisana djela nasilja u logorima poslije rata dobiju status organiziranog ratnog zločina – genocida. Definiranjem počinitelja ratnog nasilja ispitanici u studiji implicitno ističu komplementarnu suprotnost počinitelja – žrtvu nasilja. Žrtva je predstavljena kao prijeratni poznanik, prijatelji i susjed izvršitelja nasilja. Žrtva nasilja definirana je kao umorna, posustala u agoniji, kao inferiorna, dehumanizirana, žigosana i kao bespomoćna, ostavljena na milost i nemilost počiniteljima ratnog nasilja. Svođenje ljudi samo na jedan primarni (ubojit) kolektivni identitet, postoji na svakom mjestu gdje se „etnički identitet“ ljudi smatra važnijim od njihova osobnog, individualnog, građanskog, profesionalnog ljudskog identiteta. Spajanje etnonacionalnih identiteta u potpuno homogeni, masovni, jedinstveni kolektivni identitet, a koji se znatno ili (potpuno) razlikuje od nekih drugih – savršeno odgovara reprodukciji i stvaranju novih oblika nasilja.

Abstract [en]

Previous research on violence during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina has resulted in a one-sided presentation of the phenomenon of “war violence.” Researchers have emphasized the importance of narratives in general but have not analyzed stories on war violence that were the product of interpersonal interaction and meaning-making activity. The aim of this article is to fill this knowledge gap by analyzing survivor narratives of the 1990s war in northwestern Bosnia. The focus is on analyzing interviewees’ descriptions of wartime violence and the discursive patterns that contribute to constructing the phenomenon of “war violence.” My analysis reveals an intimate relationship between how an interviewee interprets the biographical consequences of war violence and the individual’s own war experiences. All interviewees described war violence as something that is morally reprehensible. These narratives, from both perpetrators of violence and those subjected to violence, recount violent situations that not only exist as mental constructions but also live on even after the war; thus, they have real consequences for the individuals and their society.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att analysera förskollärares berättelser om sitt praktiska arbete med flerspråkiga barns språkutveckling. Studiens analys utgår från sekundärempiriskt material (empiriska sekvenser från redan publicerade kvalitativa analyser). Preliminär analys visar att förskollärare i sina berättelser betonar betydelsen av vardagliga praktiska interaktioner för flerspråkiga barns språkutveckling. De interaktioner som återges i berättelserna gäller lek, matintag, av- och påklädning, bilder och böcker. I dessa berättelser presenterar sig förskollärarna som kompetenta aktörer som bygger på sin kompetens, bland annat genom interaktion med flerspråkiga barn. På så sätt blir interaktionen med flerspråkiga barn en grundläggande dimension för skapande och återskapande av förskollärarnas yrkesidentitet. Metodologiskt diskuteras behov av insamling och analys av primäretnografiskt empiriskt material i form av intervjuer, fältanteckningar och dokument från förskolepraktiken.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to analyse pre-school teachers’ narratives about their practical work with multilingual children’s language development. The study's analysis is based on secondary empirical material (empirical sequences from previously published qualitative analyses). Preliminary analysis shows that pre-school teachers in their narratives emphasise the importance of everyday practical interactions for multilingual children's language development. Interactions that are described in the narratives refer to playing, food intake, putting on and taking off clothes, pictures and books. In these narratives the pre-school teachers present themselves as competent actors based on their expertise, among other things through interaction with multilingual children. This makes interaction with multilingual children a fundamental dimension for creating and re-creating pre-school teachers’ professional identity. From a methodological aspect, the need to collect and analyse primary ethnographic empirical material in the form of interviews, field notes and documents from pre-school practice is discussed.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att analysera hur underrättelsepersonal och operativ personal inom de olika gränsmyndigheterna i den baltiska regionen framställer ”kriminella ryssar” och vilka diskursiva mönster som medverkar i konstruktionen av kategorin ”den normupplösande ryssen”. Studiens analytiska upptäckter presenteras under följande teman: (1) Konstruktion av normupplösning och moralisk panik: exempel kriminell, (2) Konstruktion av normupplösning och moralisk panik: exempel spion och (3) Konstruktion av normupplösning och moralisk panik: exempel militär invasion. Den varierande moral som aktörer inom underrättelse- operativt polis- och gränsbevakningsarbete uppvisar, och den förstärkning av argumentet för behovet att bekämpa den andra (”ryssen”), kan tolkas på flera sätt. En tolkning är att den konstruerade rädslan för den normupplösande ryssen och återgiven moralisk panik är ett uttryck för en social identitet, i och med att den baseras på en kontrast i förhållande till de andra. Genom att bygga upp idéer om ”fiender” skapas och återskapas moralisk panik samt den professionella polis- och gränsbevakningens yrkesidentiteter. Dessutom utkristalliseras i studiens analys bilden av ryssar som utpekade av polis och gränsbevakare i Baltiska regionen.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to analyze how intelligence and operative personnel in the Baltic Sea area describe the category “Russian criminals” and which discursive patterns cooperate with the construction of the category “norm-resolving Russian.” The analytical findings of a study are presented in the following themes: (1) Construction of norm resolution and moral panics: example criminal, (2) Construction of norm resolution and moral panics: example spy and (3) Construction of norm resolution and moral panics: example military invasion. The presentation of intelligence and operational police and border guard work as having varying morals and strengthening the argument for the need to fight against the other (“Russian”) can be interpreted in different ways. One interpretation is that constructed fear for the norm-resolving Russian and reproduced moralic panic is the expression of a social identity, and it is based on a contrast in relation to the “other”. By building up ideas about "enemies", moral panic is created and recreated, as well as the professional police and border guard professional identities. In addition, it shows in the analysis of the study the image of Russians pointed out by police and border guards in the Baltic region.
