    "Att tända gnistan och få den att flamma upp": Samverkan mellan lärare och skolbibliotekarier på låg-och mellanstadiet2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    Bland boktips och länksamlingar: En undersökning av de svenska folkbibliotekens webbplatser för ungdomar2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    Folkbibliotekariers arbete mot det demokratiska uppdraget: En kvalitativ analys om folkbibliotekariers tolkning av det demokratiska uppdraget 2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    Informationshantering hos personer med läs- och skrivsvårigheter och dyslexi: Hur personer med läs- och skrivsvårigheter och dyslexi hanterar och bearbetar information i arbetslivet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    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.

    A Matter of Form, Style, and Monsters: A Comparative Analysis of Reazione a catena and Friday the 13th2020In: L'avventura. International Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Landscapes, ISSN 2421-6496, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 3-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Italian filmmaker Mario Bava was an influential master of genre films. Perhaps his most seminal contribution was to the American slasher films of the 1980s, in particular the Friday the 13th series, which paid overt homage to Mario Bava’s Reazione a catena (1971). While the similarities and borrowings have already been discussed elsewhere, this article examines the differences, through a comparative formal and stylistic analysis, between Friday the 13th (S.S. Cunningham, 1980) and Reazione a catena. It focuses specifically on the impalement scene in Friday the 13th Part 2 (S. Miner, 1981), which was borrowed almost verbatim from Bava’s film, but which makes substantial and meaningful changes.

    Bringing The Nanny to the Italian Audience: Dubbing as Adaptation and Assimilation2017In: First conference of the Journal for Italian Cinema and Media Studies, American University of Rome, Italy, 9-10 June 2017, 2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As widely known in Translation Studies, no translation comes without adaptation: translating means converting a source-language text into a target-language text bearing in mind that the cultural context of the target language is likely to be different. Adaptation is typically at work with those puns, proverbs or idiomatic expressions that are not translatable verbatim and thus require some semantic adaptation that should convey the same meaning under a different form – e.g. the meaning of the English “Touch wood!” is rendered in Italian by “Tocca ferro! [Touch iron]”

    Dubbing is a popular method of audio-visual translation – or better, of audio-visual adaptation – and the preferred one in such non-English-speaking countries as France, Germany and Italy. The major problem with dubbing is that, unlike subtitling, it replaces part of the film: the dialogue track. An audio-visual product can thus undergo radical and even utterly arbitrary adaptation operations without the audience in the target country noticing it, given the unavailability of the original dialogue track for comparison. Dubbing, more than subtitling, often imposes on the audio-visual product a more or less marked process of socio-cultural “assimilation” – in its original meaning of “making similar.” Through significant changes in the dialogue, the audio-visual work is adapted to make it more relatable to the target audience. In some cases, this assimilation leads to a radical modification of the original socio-cultural context of the work, an extreme “assimilating” adaptation that is often unnecessary semantically – a more faithful translation of the dialogue could have been perfectly understandable even without such drastic changes. In these cases the rationale is market-oriented: the audience may enjoy the audio-visual work better if they recognise in the story familiar elements and a world that is “similar” to theirs.

    The case study presented is the Italian version of the American TV series The Nanny (1993-1999) in which the Jewish characters were turned into Italian characters. This created incongruous formal consequences – e.g. mismatches between the new dialogue track and the original visual track – but assured a wide success on the Italian television.

    Episodes and Real Rob: Celebrities at Their Worst.2018In: 4th International Celebrity Studies Conference ‘Desecrating Celebrities’, Università La Sapienza, Rome, Italy, 27-29 June 2018, 2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper examines two TV series based on self-desecration. In Episodes (2011–2017, five seasons) Matt LeBlanc plays a version of himself reminiscent of Friends’s Joey Tribbiani. The fictional LeBlanc is as dense and, in his acting profession, as inept as Joey was. Unlike Joey, fictional LeBlanc is (undeservedly?) successful and wealthy and, quite unlike Joey, he is not amiable but selfish, on the verge of being a sexual predator, prima donna-like capricious and vain, and totally unreliable. The series tracks the vicissitudes of two British screenwriters trying to adapt their critically-acclaimed BBC show into a product for the American market, suffering much damage to their artistic integrity, most of which caused by LeBlanc, imposed as the series’ star by the Head of the network. In Real Rob (2015–ongoing, two seasons) Rob Schneider – famous for his raunchy roles in such comedies as Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999) – teams up with his real-life wife Patricia to produce a series in-between the reality and the sit-com. The show follows the daily life of the Schneider family – including the three-year-old daughter Miranda. Rob is depicted as pathologically egotistical, at times a squander at times a close-fisted, gasping for a relaunch of his waning career, envious of his wife’s increasing success, and cruelly bossy to his slave-like personal assistant.

    Both fictional LeBlanc and fictional Schneider mix traits from both their public and screen personae but deliberately and mercilessly push the tone towards the negative extremes – LeBlanc ends up in bed with his barely legal-age female stalker; Schneider forces his personal assistant to get a vasectomy in his stance. They come to embody the worst stereotypes associated with celebrities. In Episodes and Real Rob LeBlanc and Schneider have opted for a renewed visibility built on desecration. In the complex dynamics of stardom and fandom, fans have loved ‘heroes’ as well as ‘villains’; they have been mesmerised by grand gestures as well as by sordid scandals. What Episodes and Real Rob seems to point to is the fact that, no matter how desecrated, celebrities will still be followed and admired precisely because they are celebrities.

    The Final Girls (2015) as a Video Essay: A Metalinguistic Play with Genre and Gender Conventions2019In: Gender and Contemporary Horror in Film / [ed] Samantha Holland; Steven Gerrard; Robert Shail, Bingley: Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2019, p. 219-235Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Final Girls (Todd Strauss-Schulson, 2015) is the story of a group of teen-age friends that, during the screening of a Friday the 13th-like 1980s slasher horror, happen to be sucked into the film. Trapped in the gruesome narrative, they have to survive the deranged killer that haunts the premises of the campsite by applying their knowledge of the rules and cliches of the slasher genre. The film is of interest not only because it mixes horror and comedy and exaggerates the horror genre's conventions – as Scream and other neo-slashers already did. By employing the device of the screen rupture, the film constructs a complex network of self-reflexive moments and intertextual references. The metalinguistic play involves in particular the notoriously sexophobic and gender-led dynamics of the 1980s slashers – those more emancipated girls who have sex are killed, the most prudish girl is the one that eventually manages to defeat the monster, the “Final Girl.” In this sense, the film is almost like a video essay that reprises and illustrates one of the most seminal study of the slasher genre, Carol Clover's 1992 Men, Women, and Chain Saws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film. The chapter presents the defining elements of the slasher subgenre as theorised by Clover and then focusses on the analysis of the metalinguistic elements of The Final Girls vis-a-vis Clover's classic text.

    The Multiform Identity of Jazz in Hollywood: An Assessment through the John Williams Case Study2019In: Cinema Changes: Incorporations of Jazz in the Film Soundtrack / [ed] Emile Wennekes; Emilio Audissino, Turnhout: Brepols, 2019, p. 85-97Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    John Williams is best known for such large-scale symphonic works as Star Wars, Superman, the Indiana Jones series and the likes. Yet, his musical roots are also (and strongly) in jazz. In his formative years he had the opportunity to be in touch with some of the finest performers. In the 1950s, while studying 'legitimate' piano music at the Juilliard School in New York, he tickled the ivories in the city's jazz clubs. In the early 1960s, while working in Hollywood as a pianist and an orchestrator, he arranged albums for Mahalia Jackson and Vic Damone. When Williams firmly established himself as a film composer the mid-1960s, he brought in his jazz background as a perhaps less noticeable but yet fundamental component of his style. After a quick introduction about the relation between cinema and jazz in Hollywood history in order to contextualise Williams's film career, the chapter focusses on the Williams film scores in which jazz episodes emerge from beneath the otherwise symphonic texture – for example, 'Cantina Band' in Star Wars (1977), 'Swing, Swing, Swing' in 1941 (1979), 'The Knight Bus' in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) – and on film scores in which jazz is central to the film's narrative: for example, Catch Me if You Can (2002) and The Terminal (2004).

    Émigrés and Hollywood Film Music: The Cases of Max Steiner's Casablanca and Erich Wolfgang Korngold's The Adventures of Robin Hood2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The United States of America have always been the destination of migrants and refugees from all over the world. Similarly, Hollywood has always been a coveted destination for all those who work in cinema. In the 1930s Hollywood gave asylum to numerous artists who had left Europe not to seek work but to flee from the racial persecutions and policies of Nazi-Fascist regimes. In particular, European musicians had a huge influence on Hollywood film music, so much so that two of them can be considered its fathers: Max Steiner and Erich Wolfgang Korngold. The paper presents a discussion of the musical choices of Casablanca and The Adventures of Robin Hood - respectively by Steiner and Korngold - and shows how these composers-refugees were able to infuse in those films important political allusions about the contemporary world, to express their gratitude for the haven that Hollywood offered them, and to nostalgically evoke their distant and lost homelands.

    Abstract [en]

    The present volume seeks to tackle jazz as to its interaction with the film from three vantage points: the formulation of alternative theoretical approaches, the close examination of exemplary case studies, and the survey of the use of jazz in different national cinemas. The latter, in particular, is one of the central concerns, that is to examine how jazz is used outside Hollywood. Because of both Hollywood’s long-time pre-eminent position on the world market and for the fact that jazz and Hollywood hail from the same country, the relationship of jazz with Hollywood cinema has often occupied a preponderant share in the literature. Yet, for these same reasons of exposure and co-nationality, an account of non-Hollywood cinemas should nevertheless have Hollywood as a reference point. Hollywood cinema has been since the late silent era the stylistic and narrative model for any other cinema, a reference point either to be imitated and conformed to, or to be challenged and subverted. Therefore it seems appropriate to open this volume with a brief introduction to jazz and Hollywood.

    In order to delineate how Hollywood has been using jazz as a cinematic device – that is, how this type of music was used in films as a stylistic, narrative, and thematic element in conjunction and cooperation with all the other devices (dialogue, camerawork, editing, set design, acting…) – it is useful to isolate a handful of recurrent ‘representational categories’. These offer a concise and sample-based survey of how the presentation of jazz (in its many incarnations) has changed in Hollywood cinema through the years, what connotations have been attached to this type of music, and how jazz and its practitioners have been depicted.

    Keeping culture clean: 'nested redistribution' as a path to moral redemption in Kampala (Uganda)2023In: Journal for Contemporary African Studies, ISSN 0258-9001, E-ISSN 1469-9397Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The restoration of precolonial authorities in contemporary Uganda has inspired the revival of practices constitutive of local identities. The article focuses on the role of (re)distribution in the formation of Ganda identity in the Buganda kingdom, by exploring the moral conundrums lived by workers in Kisekka Market (Kampala). The article describes two principles underpinning economic relations. First, it explores culturally approved patronage and downwards distribution which, given the pyramidal structure of society, translates simultaneously into forms of redistribution and the upward submission of subjects to a higher order (clans and kingdom). This two-way process is called 'nested redistribution'. Second, it shows how culturally approved forms of (re)distribution conflict with individual accumulation, culturally condemned but paradoxically key to afford redistribution itself. The ethnography describes how tensions between these principles are resolved, making use of the same categories (culture, morality) that engender them in the first place.

    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.

    Ferdowsis Shahnameh manifesterad: En studie av historiebruk, minne och transkulturella rörelser i Hamid Rachmanians projekt Kingorama2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Through a case-study of the project Kingorama by Hamid Rachmanian, this essay examines how the Iranian epic Shahnameh by Abol Qasem Ferdowsi is manifested outside Iran today and how it can be viewed as a cultural memory in motion. Questions concerning Iranian identity and the transcultural movement of memory are explored through a theoretical framework consisting of Astrid Erll’s “travelling memory” and of history as something which can be ‘used’ or ‘constructed’ through remediation and performativity. The essay also applies a methodological framework within which Iranian identity is understood through five historical dimensions, from pre-islamic Iran to modern Iran. The results of the study show that the Kingorama-project embraces a multilayered understanding of Iranian identity and that it mediates a shift where Shahnameh is not seen foremost as a national epic, but as being of universal importance.

    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.

    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]

    The purpose of this essay is to study how the animal life can be taken into account in green structure plans. The purpose is also to study the possibilities of a human need for access to animals and nature in green structure plans. An additional purpose is to study how two municipalities deal with issues concerning a possible urban expansion and a conservation of nature areas. In this case through a comparative study between the city of Kalmar and the city of Växjö, in the shape of partly a text analysis, partly semi-structured interviews. The purpose from a didactic perspective is to study the possibilities with a potential application of the connection between a city’s expansion and animal life in future teaching.

     

    The result of this study shows that both municipalities consider the animal life in their cities. The two municipalities place special emphasis on biodiversity, core areas and the animals’ spreading potential. It also shows that the two municipalities see a social importance with biological diversity, concerning the aim of promoting the well-being of the inhabitants. The results shows that when considering a possible urban expansion and a conservation of nature areas, the two municipalities take biodiversity into account. The process requires clear approaches and that biodiversity is taken into account at an early stage in the issue.The result of this study also shows that urban expansion together with animal life can be put in relation to the curriculum for high school and can with good conditions be used in teaching that concern urban expansion, sustainable development and the relations between human and nature.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to examine posts on bookblogs about the book, Cirkeln by Mats Strandberg and Sara Bergmark Elfgren and see how it has distributed amongst readers through social media and reader response. We want through this examine whether bookblogs have a place in the literary society, and in such cases, how this may take place. The Swedish Online bookshops Adlibris and Bokus is being used to find the blogposts to be examined in this thesis. The analysis is being implemented using content analysis and constructed encoding schemes. Interdisciplinary topics, like LIS and sociology of literature may have similar points of contact, which we want to highlight with this thesis. It is also possible to extract understanding of their own research topic by taking advantage of each other's knowledge. This is done in our paper by using Lars Furuland´s model, den litterära processen, as a starting point. The interlocking of posts on bookblogs, reader response and Online book shops, we believe demonstrates that bookblogs have a place in the Swedish literary society.

    HBT-certifiering av Sollentuna bibliotek2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The public libraries in Sweden has an obligation to serve all of its citizens, but despite of this they often fail to include their LGBTQ-patrons. Since the year of 2008 RFSL (the Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights) have arranged a specially designed certification-process based on normcritical criterias that a chosen institution should fulfill to make their work more inclusive for LGBTQ-people. Sollentuna is the first municipal in Sweden to certificate all of their libraries. This study aims to examine what the certification have meant for the public library in Sollentuna and how a normcritical view can contribute to include LGBTQ-patrons at the library. As a method we used a qualitative interview-study to get a full picture of the certification-process and its influence on the public library of Sollentuna. Our main source of information has been through interviews with four individuals who have been involved in or has experience of the certification-process. As a theoretical framework we used queer-theory to understand how a normcritical perspective can influence the daily work in the library. The results showed that the certification has made the library staff aware of the social norms they have been replicate. We have come to the conclusion that the certification is a good entrance for public libraries to start implementing a normcritical view in their daily work for inclusion of a wide range of minority groups.

    Abstract [en]

    Image indexing research today is either conducted on a visual attribute level or on a higher semantic level, forming a semantic gap between the two. There is much to gain if research progress from the two fields is combined. Image retrieval using access points in both visual and semantic significations could improve retrieval and bridge the gap. In social media today, images are often the primary communication agent and the number of images on the web is increasing in an uncontrolled way. New and efficient ways to index and retrieve the images are needed.The purpose of this study is to examine if emotions could be a semantic access point for image retrieval and if folksonomy indexing is useful when searching for images that represent emotions. Images are retrieved from Flickr and Sara Shatford’s matrix for image indexing is used to classify image tags into categories.The result shows that for some emotions it is useful and there is a clear pattern in the retrieved relevant images. For other emotions there are a lot of images that have been tagged on a cluster of images and all images in the cluster is not relevant. Therefore the search result is ambiguous.An interesting observation is that index words expressing abstractions and feelings are more common in folksonomies compared to professional indexers. For specific web image collections where searches could be conducted on feelings, folksonomies is a successful method for the indexing and retrieval of images.

    Kulturanvändande bland Unga: En studie om kulturvanor, ungdomars livsvillkor och bibliotekets roll 2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this bachelor thesis has been to examine and develop our own understanding about how young people in Sweden (16-29 years of age), take part in cultural activities. As librarians it is important to know what kind of activities and interests this particular group has. With Pierre Bourdieu’s theoretical framework towards habitus and capital we are interested to see if there is a connection between one’s cultural use and background, if different access to capital with or within groups has an affect or not. With both statistics and interviews with people within our target, we believe this data has been sufficient enough to conduct a good and valid study. After selecting a few fields in cultural use we examined them further with help from Bourdieu and the statistical data we gathered. Further we also examined what the library eventually can do to prosper a more encouraging culture when it comes to participation among young people. The analysis showed that activity such as visiting the library has decreased, and when asking the target of our study, this data was also confirmed. Nevertheless we also gained new understanding and results as this group is a very transparent and open one. For further research we think that professionals working in this field have to get a deeper and broader understanding in order to be able to satisfy young people’s cultural needs.

    Case Study On Chinas And Swedens Development Strategy In Ethiopia2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Development assistance has been important in providing sustained socio-economic progress in a developing country. Overall, it has decreased consumption poverty, contributed to a rapid expansion of modern sectors (industry), enhanced government spending, and increased aggregate investment. However, not all countries and aid organizations follow the same development guidelines but compose different development strategies. In this research, I will make an analytical comparison between China's development strategy, which is mainly directed at achieving societal development, and Sweden's development strategy which is more focused on the rights of the individual. This research will analyze the development strategies of the two aforementioned countries in Ethiopia, as both countries have a longstanding relationship of providing development assistance there. Furthermore, the Ethiopian government has been showing signs of developmental authoritarianism, which is concurrent with China's development strategy and national political system. Nevertheless, various conflicts and human rights violations suggest the need for policies more focused on individual rights, as Sweden presented. I will analyze the current situation in Ethiopia through the theoretical concept "negative-positive peace framework". Additionally, this research will analyze if and how the donor countries are benefiting from the development assistance, and how the development strategies affect global actors outside of Ethiopia.

    Abstract [en]

    Situated at the intersection of archivology, film studies and memory studies, my paper offers critical perspectives on the archive as a site of knowledge production. It investigates the construction of audiovisual heritage in digital film archives, based on my research project “The Cultural Heritage of Moving Images” (VR, 2016–2018). Drawing on theorizations of the archive by Foucault and Derrida, I regard the archive as an agent in its own right. In order to challenge the ongoing tendencies in film studies to focus on the preservation of film stock, my talk will foreground the role of the archivist as a curator. In my paper I will examine the use of metadata for the creation of a polyvocal cultural memory.
