    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this bachelor thesis is to examine the collaboration between school librarians and teachers in primary school, in order to illustrate how the two professions can work together, how they see their own roles and how they look at the other professionals´ roles. We also discuss earlier studies in LIS concerning collaboration between teachers and librarians. The method of investigation is qualitative interviews with practicing school librarians and teachers, we interviewed three school librarians and three teachers from three different schools in the same county.  As a basis of the discussion and analysis Andrew Abbott's theory of professions is used. The thesis shows that collaboration differs between the schools. The difference in itself depends on the schools principal views of the school library. The professions need to develop their understanding for each other´s roles and competences in order to develop the best possible collaboration.

    För kunskap och kultur: En studie om folkbibliotekariers inköpsstrategier av utländsk litteratur2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis’ purpose is to investigate how purchase librarians work with foreign language collection management. Since about 15% of the citizens of Sweden are born abroad or have a foreign background, the subject of investigation becomes relevant because it touches a wide user group of the public library.

    Interviews were conducted with four librarians responsible for purchasing of foreign literature. The purpose of these interviews was to investigate which underlying strategies and thoughts are used as a basis for purchasing.

    Since the library act does not include guidelines regarding the content of the foreign literature collection, how is the literature chosen and to what purpose?

    As a theoretical framework a self-developed model was used to categorize the foreign literature into its different functions. The foreign literature was divided into two main categories; entertainment reading and literature with an informative purpose.

    To display the librarians room for interpretation factor in the purchasing of literature a theory from sociology studies was applied, the theory of room for maneuver.

    The findings in this paper have revealed that literature with the purpose to entertain was prioritized in the purchasing. Even though the libraries included multicultural activities in their organization, by prioritizing the entertainment literature the library tended to deprioritize the potential integration purpose of the literature.

    The paper also revealed that the individual responsible for the purchasing was left with a large room for interpretation, which meant that one individual had the responsibility to ensure that the literature was relevant and versatile enough for the user group.

    Intersemiotic translation and transformational creativity2015In: Punctum. International Journal of Semiotics, ISSN 2459-2943, Vol. 1, no 2, p. 11-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we approach a case of intersemiotic translation as a paradigmatic example of Boden’s ‘transformational creativity’ category. To develop our argument, we consider Boden’s fundamental notion of ‘conceptual space’ as a regular pattern of semiotic action, or ‘habit’ (sensu Peirce). We exemplify with Gertrude Stein’s intersemiotic translation of Cézanne and Picasso’s proto-cubist and cubist paintings. The results of Stein’s IT transform the conceptual space of modern literature, constraining it towards new patterns of semiosis. Our association of Boden’s framework to describe a cognitive creative phenomenon with a philosophically robust theory of meaning results in a cognitive semiotic account of IT.

    Abstract [en]

    The public libraries were quick to adapt to the changes that the Internet brought on, and today library websites are an important part of the public library. To meet the needs of teens today, the library website could offer a range of contents to make it an attractive place on many levels; both the academic needs as well as social and recreational needs should be addressed.

    The aim of this thesis is to evaluate public library websites for teenagers in Sweden, and to examine how well the websites address the developmental tasks and needs that teenagers have. The method used is website evaluation, one quantitative and one qualitative. A total of 60 public library sites for teenagers were evaluated, using 11 criteria based on Havighursts developmental tasks. The quantitative evaluation measured how many functions each website had per criteria, and showed that the majority of the sites had one or two functions for most of the criteria. The qualitative evaluation showed that the websites with the highest score often offered more interactive solutions, had more dynamic content and therefore met the needs of teenagers better than the websites with a lower ranking. Overall, the public library websites for teenagers could gain from developing their content and services further, taking into consideration the needs and developmental tasks that teenagers have that separates them from other user groups.

    Fristående gymnasieskolor och skolbibliotek: En kvalitativ studie av fristående gymnasieskolors inställning till skolbiblioteksservice och undervisning i informationssökning2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this study is to examine what kind of support there is for school libraries at the selected independent upper secondary schools and how these schools ensure that libraryservices is available to their students and their teachers. The purpose is also to examine what attitudes the administrators of the schools have to school libraries and teaching in information seeking. A qualitative method with interviews was used to fulfil the purpose. As a theoretical basis of the study Loertschers taxonomies of the school library media program and Limbergs three levels of pedagogic research were used and the interviews were analysed with these two theoretical frameworks as a background. The result of the study showed that neither one of the three examinated schools has a school library which means that they use the public library instead. The problematic area is the lack of rules within the school library field and the fact that the independent schools do not show any interest of cooperating with the public library. The conclusion is probably to make an agreement between the schools and the public library and to make the administrators literate about the positive effects which come out of a well provided school library.

    Abstract [en]

    Today, one of the foremost tools used by the library staff is the library catalogue search tools. It has come to our understanding that some library staff are dissatisfied with how the search tools works. The aim of this study is to illuminate the library staff's negative experiences of the search tools, and to present a basis for future discussion and development. To our help we have used a quantitative survey which were sent to library staff that used one of the two largest integrated library systems in Sweden, BOOK-IT and Mikromarc. The questions regarded the library staff's perception of a number of features in the search tools. The results showed that in general, the overall impression of the catalogue search tools were positive, even though dissatisfaction with specific features could be observed, e.g. the system's way of handling misspellings and the ability to search the catalogue when the system is offline. This study can be seen as a small step on the way to better search tools in the library catalogue, giving the library staff better and more effective ways of providing service to the library users.

    Ledarskap: En studie om ledarstil för framtida styrmän2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this research is to find out how students, graduating from the Master Mariners programme, look at their own leadership style from their experiences from their cadet training period, their earlier work experience and from their acquired knowledge from the course in leadership which is included in the programme. The method used for this research is qualitative, with semi-structured interviews and literature studies. Ten Master Mariner students were interviewed for this research. An interview guide was used, as support to the interviewer, during the interviews. The answers from the interviews were analyzed theoretically on three classical leadership styles; authoritarian, democratic and passive. As regards to the cadet training period and earlier work experience, the result shows that the Master Mariner students regard their own leadership style as to be one that corresponds mostly with a democratic and partly with an authoritarian leadership style. The students think, from their acquired knowledge from the course in leadership, that it is important to be able to adjust one’s leadership according to the situation and to be flexible in one’s leadership style. The result seems to indicate that the flexibility in one’s leadership style lies between a democratic and an authoritarian leadership style.

    Your Exotic, Your Victim, Your Terrorist.: Visual storytelling to challenge the Western stigma of Arab women living in areas of conflict.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to explore how illustrative storytelling can challenge the western stigma of Arab women in areas of conflict. This exploration will be done through an analysis on the history and the current visualization of Arab women in the west and a series of illustrations I will be creating that propose a narrative opposing this visualization. My study will show how the visual references used for my research have had a major effect in shaping the image of the Arab women in the west. The aim of this project is to use the same characteristics that fall under the stereotypical visualizations of Arab women to challenge the stigma of classifying these women as; the terrorist, the exotic, and/or the oppressed. The purpose of my project is to create a change in the way the western audience perceives Arab women in areas of conflict. I will therefore analyze in this essay how western media and art have shaped the collective view the west has on Arab women. Furthermore, the essay will explain how storytelling proposes a rejection to the static depiction of Arab women in western media and introduces instead an element of an evolving story. This project proposes a sustainable way of looking at gender and conflict in the Arab world provoking questions around the visualization of these women and creating discussions about the accuracy of the perception the west has created. This in turn re-contextualizes the visualization of the identity of Arab women in the west with the aim of breaking the objectification these women.

    Hur medierna framställer kvinnor i sportsammanhang: En kvantitativ innehållsanalys av hur kvinnor respektive män inom sporten representeras i lokaltidningen Smålänningen.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study was to investigate the representation of women’s sports and men’s sports, in the local newspaper Smålänningen. A study I conducted through examining how many articles on men’s sports and how many articles on women’s sports have been published over the last four years. I chose to investigate two months of every year; January and March. I also examined which sports were the most occurring ones.

    I used the method of quantitative content analysis to investigate the questions. Through the method I performed an overall analysis of how many articles were written about men’s sports, and how many articles were written about women’s sports in Smålänningen. The result of the quantitative content analysis showed that female athletes are misrepresented and that men’s sports dominates Smålänningens reporting. It also showed that there were more articles written by female journalists than articles based on performances achieved by female athletes. Further, my study showed that the reporting on women’s sports have become more regular in Smålänningen.

    Monstera Deliciosa: Serveringsbricka med variationsmöjlighet för servitriser och servitörer2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Monstera Deliciosa is a serving tray for waitresses and waiters when serving beverages and accessories. The project emerged when I looked back at my former profession as a waitress in a restaurant. The body is a constantly working tool in many different heavy work situations. The serving tray works with several variation options in use to create less monotonous load, thus solving the problem of working from from both right and left hand side. The tray can be worn resting on the arm / hand with the choice to grab the tray with the fingers in the recessed holes, then the shoulder, and finally resting on the hip.

    The placing of the tray depends on what is served on the tray. The tray has four trails openings from the edges, two on each side. They provide a safe way of carrying wine glasses.

    The name of the tray is referring to its visual resemblance with leafs of the plant Monstera Deliciosa.

    The Wire og kriminalitetens afkroge2012In: Passage, ISSN 0901-8883, E-ISSN 1904-7797, no 68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that the American TV-series The Wire poses complicated political and ideological questions rather than attempting to deliver clear-cut answers or solutions to the problems represented. The Wire is analysed both as an aesthetic phenomenon (narratological and thematic analysis) and as a representation of societal elements (which demands analysis based on sociological, historical and criminological perspectives). After a brief overview of the series, the authors aim to generalise the results of the analysis of a particular part of the five-season series, namely the “Hamsterdam-episode”.

    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to seek how the librarians interpret the democratic mandate and how they use this in their profession. Jenny Åström made a similar survey in 2012 throughout the whole of Sweden and we are considering if the results have changed over the recent years.

    Unlike Jenny Åström, who interviewed library staff all over Sweden, we focused on only 2 municipalities. We performed qualitative interviews with 6 librarians who are working on public libraries. We have applied our result both from the information Jenny Åström got on her study and from the model The four spaces, by Skot-Hansen et al. We are also discussing difficulties that can occur in working with the democratic mandate.

    ”Vart är vi på väg?”: En kvalitativ studie av Linnéuniversitetets personals arbetspendling mellan Växjö och Kalmar2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    För mig har intresset för tidsgeografi vuxit eftersom komplexiteten i ämnet är stort, men även att tidsgeografi är något varje individ upplever i sin vardag. Varje individ kommer antagligen att ställa sig inför valet att arbetspendla någon gång i livet.

    Syftet med undersökning är att få fördjupad kunskap om människans val att arbetspendla, med inriktning mot hur bildandet av Linnéuniversitetet har påverkat arbetspendlingen mellan Växjö och Kalmar. Undersökningens syftar också till att få en fördjupad kunskap om hur sammanslagningen har påverkat Växjös region. För att besvara frågeställningarna användes intervjuer där fyra av Linnéuniversitetets personal blev intervjuade om deras upplevelse av hur sammanslagningen har påverkat deras arbetspendling och vilka restriktioner som de upplevt under resans tid.

    Den första januari 2010 blev startskottet för Kalmar högskola och Växjö universitet att bli Linnéuniversitetet. Detta öppnade upp för flera institutioner att samarbeta med varandra, för att en högre kunskapsnivå skulle uppnås. Det gav även fler möjligheter till att konkurrera med andra universitet. I och med denna sammanslagning blir Linnéuniversitet Sveriges nyaste universitet.

    Regionförstoring sker vid en sammanslagning av universitet, där en ökning av humankapital förekommer i regionen. Växande kompetens kan öka regionens tillväxt och etablering av infrastruktur har effekten blivit att pendlingen har ökat och lett till att rörelseströmmen både har ökat och förflyttats.

    Det finns tre olika restriktioner som styr människans möjlighet att förflytta sig i tid och rum. För det första har individen biologiska restriktioner som påverkar dess prestationsförmåga att nå sin destination vilket heter kapacitetsrestriktion. Den andra kallas kopplingsrestriktion och innebär att individen blir beroende av att befinna sig på en plats vid en viss tid genom ett beroende av andra individer. Den tredje restriktionen innefattar den tidsgeografiska aspekten på maktutövning. Detta innebär att en individ kan stöta på enheter som begränsar deras tid.

    Resultatet visar att respondenterna har påverkats av sammanslagningen mellan Kalmar högskola och Växjö universitet. De behöver förflytta sig mer mellan de två olika lärosätena. Genom sammanslagningen har deras arbetstjänster utökat och gjort att deras ansvarsområde utökats.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to investigate how individuals with reading- and writing disabilities and dyslexia handle their information need in the workplace. The method that has been used is a qualitative study made with interviews with individuals who have these problems, to see how they think and feel about the flow of information on their everyday basis. The study’s respondents are working women between the ages of 27 and 47 years old and they have reading- and writing disabilities and dyslexia. The most interesting results of this study are that the respondents are avoiding jobs where they need to read and write much and where they also do not like changes in their job situation. Their experience of information at work is that they fail to get all information that their colleges get, but also that they choose not to take part of all information there is. We can conclude the study with the significance of getting the accommodations needed to get the same information as their co-workers.

    Demokratiskt kulturarv: nationella institutioner, universella värden, lokala praktiker2006In: Demokratiskt kulturarv?: nationella institutioner, universella värden, lokala praktiker / [ed] Annika Alzén, Peter Aronsson, Norrköping: Tema Kultur och samhälle, Campus Norrköping, Linköpings universitet , 2006, p. 1-17Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Frågan om ett demokratiskt kulturarv brukar knytas till 1974 års statliga kulturpolitik med sin ambition att sprida kultur till allt bredare grupper. I vår egen tid lever detta vidare samtidigt som vägarna öppnats för både en mer krävande och aktivistiska demokratisyn och en mindre entydigt negativ syn på kommersiella kulturyttringar. Element som har med representation av allt fler grupper och deras aktiva deltagande i kulturarvsprocesser förs in som både ett rättvisekrav, som en förhoppning om ett mer dynamiskt samhällsliv och som ett försök att fördjupa och förnya den demokratiska politiska kulturen.

    Begreppet kulturarv var på 1970-talet inget gångbart begrepp. Det är först kring 1990, med de stora omvälvningarna både inom och utom landet som detta begrepp hamnar i kulturpolitikens mitt i ett försök att orientera och mobilisera i en svårmanövrerad samtid.

    Ska traditionen styra framtiden? Ska medborgarna bestämma över det förflutna? Ska medborgarnas erfarenhet forma kulturarvet? Vems kulturarv och vilken gemenskap ska odlas med offentliga medel och vad kan lämnas åt privata intressen eller föreningar, rent av med fördel? Vad blir experternas roll?

    Med stöd av Vetenskapsrådets satsning på Demokratiforskning möjliggjordes en konferens hösten 2004 och denna antologi som försöker ta ett stort grepp kring frågorna om i vilka meningar man mer precist kan tala om ett demokratiskt kulturarv.

    "We have whistles instead of guns": Nonviolent resistance in the 21st century2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Nonviolent resistance has been found to be more effective in bringing about societal and political transformation than violent insurgency.

    Nonviolent resistance as a nonconventional form of engagement in conflict, furthermore attracts more people, encourages diversity in participation, has the moral high ground and has positive longterm effects on a society, in terms of citizenship skills, civilian peace and democratisation. However, a discourse of militarism and violence can be said to dominate the world today. Macropolitical incompatibilities are often confronted with arms and violence, whether by political leaders or civilians.

    This thesis aspires to challenge this violent discourse, and encourage the move towards nonviolent approaches to confronting and circumventing power and authority, by exploring the mechanisms at work in nonviolent resistance movements, and attain a deeper understanding of which elements of nonviolent resistance movements may be supportive of achieving the aim of the collective action for change.

    The methodological approach is conducting a qualitative, deductive study within the framework of a structured, focused cross-case comparison of four nonviolent, anti-regime movements in the Middle East and North Africa, which have taken place in the 21st century.

    The findings reveal the ambiguous and context-dependent nature of most of the elements scrutinised for their operativeness, and yield suggestive tendencies of few - while they offer a nuanced insight into the dynamics within which these elements work in nonviolent conflict. This study explores the phenomenon of nonviolent resistance, provides an understanding of the complexity of the mechanisms and dynamics involved, and suggests the need for further research into nonviolent resistance, to improve the understanding and utilisation of it.

    Diskussionen om Harry Scheins komplicerade förhållande till sitt judiska arv rasar vidare. ”Ulf Öfverbergs inlägg i debatten om Harry Schein visar hur konservativt det kulturpolitiska samtalet har blivit”, skriver Stefan Arvidsson, professor i religionshistoria vid Linnéuniversitetet i en replik.

    Iconic semiosis and representational efficiency in the London Underground Diagram2014In: Cognitive Semiotics, ISSN 1662-1425, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 177-190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The icon is the type of sign connected to efficient representational features, and its manipulation reveals more information about its object. The London Underground Diagram (LUD) is an iconic artifact and a well-known example of representational efficiency, having been copied by urban transportation systems worldwide. This paper investigates the efficiency of the LUD in the light of different conceptions of iconicity. We stress that a specialized representation is an icon of the formal structure of the problem for which it has been specialized. By embedding such rules of action and behavior, the icon acts as a semiotic artifact distributing cognitive effort and participating in niche construction.

    An East Timorese Domain Luca from Central and Peripheral Perspectives2017In: Bijdragen Tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde, ISSN 0006-2294, E-ISSN 2213-4379, Vol. 173, no 2-3, p. 325-355Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The East Timorese kingdom Luca is described as the hegemon of the eastern parts of Timor in some nineteenth-century works. This is gainsaid by other data, which point to the existence of a multitude of petty kingdoms. This article scrutinizes Luca's claim to power from a number of angles, utilizing European records and contemporary anthropological fieldwork. First, we analyse the claims of the centre as reflected in colonial and indigenous narratives. Second, we investigate narratives from the 'periphery', that is, the minor adjacent domains of Vessoro and Babulo. Third, we offer a comprehensive discussion of Luca's role from a wider geographical perspective. In this way we produce a 'general account' that situates the symbolic and historical significance of Luca within the Timorese understanding of time, ritual, and power.

    Traditionella flygbolagens konkurrensstrategier mot lågprisflygbolag2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study is based on explaining and giving a picture of strategies the traditional airlines use to compete with the low cost airlines. Since the deregulation in 1992 many low cost airlines have established themselves on Europe´s airline market and have taken over large parts of the market. Air travelers have become price-conscious and always searching for the cheapest ticket.

    Traditional airlines were outcompeted by low cost companies. In order to claim the market new competition strategies were needed. The purpose of the study is to describe which strategies traditional airlines use especially in terms of service offering to attract customers. Previous research and theories describe competition strategies that focus on service, costs, price, product and Porter´s model.

    In interviews with people who have knowledge about the airline industry because of their work we got answers about how traditional airlines use competitive strategies with the focus on service. We supplemented our study with secondary literature from the webpages of traditional airlines. The results show that the best strategy for traditional airlines is to use a mix of different service strategies to win loyal clients.

    Den stressade småbarnsföräldern: en utvärdering av marknadsföringskampanjen "Småbarnsföräldern" på ett folkbibliotek2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis is a study and an evaluation of the planning and implementation of the targeted marketing campaign "Småbarnsföräldern" at a public library. The analysis is based on the following questions:

     What goals does the library have with the marketing campaign "Småbarnsföräldern"?

     How has the library chosen to plan and implement the marketing campaign "Småbarnsföräldern" and what role have the users had in this process?

     What is the internal result of the library’s marketing campaign – how did the staff experience the marketing campaign "Småbarnsföräldern"?

     What is the external result – how did the target group, the parents of young children, experience the marketing campaign "Småbarnsföräldern"?

    The method is based on a case study of a single library with a series of interviews and document analysis. The study reveals that it´s difficult to plan a marketing campaign against a target group. The target group, the parents of young children, didn’t observe the marketing campaign, two informants had noticed the poster but didn’t pay much attention to it. No informant indicated that the campaign had prompted them to change their way of using the library. Lack of time is one reason.

    Lärare inom gränser: En studie om lärares överlevnadsstrategier2009Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

     Arbetets syfte har varit att identifiera erfarna gymnasielärares förhållningssätt och strategier för att genom detta klara av ett långt yrkesliv utan att påverkas alltför mycket av stress. Under arbetets gång har lärare intervjuats på ett sådant sätt att dessa har fått möjlighet att fördjupa sina svar, vilket har givit arbetet en djupare insikt genom lärarnas egna berättelser. Den teoribakgrund som har legat bakom undersökningen bygger på Antonovskys teori om Känslan Av SaMmanhang, Kasam. Förutom intervjuer har lärarna fått svara på den korta versionen av Antonovskys livsfrågeformulär, där tyngdpunkten ligger på hur individen reagerar i olika livssituationer och där grundkomponenterna begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet leder fram till god förmåga att hantera och stressfulla situationer. Genom intervjuer och frågeformulär har arbetet försökt att finna de förhållningssätt som varit framgångsrika för att hantera situationen i skolan. Dessa strategier har vi indelat i kategorierna gränssättning, beredskap, ambitionsnivå och fritid. Resultatet har åskådliggjort lärarnas synpunkter och uppfattningar om vad som var viktigt för att långsiktigt klara av yrkesrollen. Informanternas svar som givits genom livsfrågeformulärets frågor har dessutom visat på att de lärare som intervjuats äger dessa egenskaper.

    Hur tjänstemän ser på folkbibliotekets IT-utveckling2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to examine how officials within the Swedish public libraryorganisation view the IT-development, how the IT-development progresses within theorganisation and if there is a need for a national IT-strategy for the public libraries in Sweden.Four unorganized interviews with officials within the regional- and county libraryorganisation and one within the national organisation where conducted. This study is aqualitative examination where the phenomenographic approach has been used as inspirationfor the analytic model. The analytic result has been compared to the system theory of how anoptimal system should be constructed to perform in an optimal way and to be able to producegood results. The results of this study show a wish for a better national cooperation regardingthe IT-development for the Swedish public libraries. Today’s library structure should bereviewed over in order to enable the libraries to produce even better results from the cooperation’s.

    Låt oss tala om integration: En studie av folkbibliotekariers syn på integrationsfrämjande arbete2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social exclusion is a problem in today’s society that we feel public libraries can help resolve since they are based on the idea of equality and openness. The purpose of this essay is to examine how public librarians think and reason about the concept “integration” as well as what role public libraries can play in immigrants’ integration process. With Jose Alberto Diaz’ theory on the integration process, and Marianne Andersson and Dorte Skot-Hansen’s model for analysis of the local library profile as theoretical framework, we analyzed the responses from two qualitative interviews in small groups of 2-3 librarians from two different public libraries. The result of this study shows that some public librarians cannot give an accurate definition of the word integration; instead they define integration as mutual respect for cultural differences. Only two librarians included in their definition that integration means to become participants in society. Despite this lack of a comprehensive understanding of the concept the librarians have a positive attitude towards the public libraries’ ability to support the integration process through book collection and program activities. The librarians think that public libraries mostly support the integration by: 1) increasing the understanding between different cultures and thereby decreasing prejudice and fear in the society (personal integration), 2) help immigrants develop a social network with the majority culture (social integration), and 3) help immigrants with language development(communicative integration). This is done mostly by focusing on the public libraries’ role of knowledge and education as well as their social role.

    Det mångkulturella biblioteket: En kritisk diskursanalys av vetenskapliga artiklar ur ett postkolonialt perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Multiculturalism is a current issue in our globalized society, which also the

    library field must relate to. In the Swedish Library Act from 2014 it is

    stressed that users with another linguistic background than Swedish shall be

    prioritized. However, an undifferentiated comprehension of what

    multicultural services at the library really means prevails, and the underlying

    values of the concept are rarely questioned. The purpose of this bachelor

    thesis is to problematize the concept of multiculturalism in a library context,

    by the identification of ideological patterns in the research discourse. Nine

    Library- and Information Science research articles that discuss

    multiculturalism at the public library have been scrutinized, and we found

    that the articles are dominated by a palpable Western and colonial

    perspective. Four discourses were identified in the empirical material, which

    all can be linked to changes in the macro-sociological context. As a

    theoretical and methodological framework we have chosen Norman

    Fairclough's critical discourse analysis (CDA) in combination with Homi K.

    Bhabha's postcolonial theory. CDA focuses on linguistic text analysis, in

    order to uncover how discourses both influence and are influenced by the

    social context, while Bhabha's theory questions how Western scholars create

    an illusion of fixed cultural identities. By combining these theories we

    wished to problematize the Western knowledge production, and initiate new

    approaches regarding how to work practically with these issues. Our

    conclusion is that there are similarities in how Western scholars depict

    multiculturalism and ethnicity at the library, which might impact the library

    practice in a negative way.

    Abstract [en]

    As part of the Digital Humanities initiative at Linnaeus University, this exploratory study is aimed at gathering views and opinions from relevant stakeholders in the regional community in order to understand their perspective on Digital Humanities as a subject of study and the potential application of Digital Humanities to address local requirements. The ultimate purpose of the study was to inform the development of Digital Humanities at Linnaeus University in a way that would address genuine needs within society. The principal research question of the study was: "What views and opinions are there about Digital Humanities and how can they be exploited for the optimal benefit of the education and industry sectors of the local region of Småland?" A focus group interview of four stakeholders was conducted, each representing a different cultural institution in the region. The participants largely agreed that Digital Humanities could be used in optimal ways to engage people and end users in their work and social engagement. The Digital Humanities project could contribute and engage with wider society through schools, museums and other public platforms. However, the sustainability of the Digital Humanities project requires further study. Also, as a provider of higher education in Sweden, it was important to bear in mind that the proposed educational programme in the Digital Humanities needs to keep to the three pillars of Education, Research, and Engagement with Society as the primary components of their course development.

    What are the conditions and processes influencing today’s music business in Europe? With the globalisation of music, researchers in Europe increasingly focus on social changes triggered by music and its role identity development. What are the effects of technological developments on traditional record companies and music consumers? And will the predominance of English pop music prevail in the global music landscape?
