    Samhällsarbetet börjar i hemmet: En studie om hur Västerviks husmodersförening verkade för att förbättra husmoderns villkor under åren 1950-19782018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This research project examines how the housewives’ association in the small town Västervik operated to make women and housewives much stronger in their everyday life. The housewives’ association in Västervik arranged all kind of different activities, for example, presentations of various household products, studying and charity work. As previous research has stated, the association could not really influence those in power, even if they were represented in numerous boards and wanted to reform many aspects of the society. The association’s strength was their impact on the local society and that they meant a great deal to those who were involved in their communion. The analysis of the results indicated that the housewives’ association mainly wanted to establish the woman as a stereotypical maternal woman. Furthermore, the investigation showed that the association in Västervik reduced their activities between 1950 and 1978, and this can be related to the historical context of Sweden during this time period, for example, the changing role of women in the society.

    Teaching English to newly arrived immigrant pupils: A qualitative case study about teachers' experiences at a Swedish secondary school2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative case study examines teachers’ perspectives on receiving and teaching newly arrived immigrant pupils. Previous research and the Swedish National Agency for Education have shown that immigrant pupils have a tendency to fail their education, and some researchers also implied that these children fail their English education. The aim of this essay has been to investigate how English teachers at a secondary school in southern Sweden deal with the growing number of newly arrived immigrants in their classes. The collected data is based on qualitative semi-structured interviews with three teachers at a secondary school in Sweden. The results indicate that the teachers considered that it was challenging to receive and teach newly arrived immigrant pupils. They do not have enough information on how they should incorporate these children into subject planning and ongoing pedagogical initiatives. Moreover, the data also show that the participants expressed the fact that the pupils often had a low level of English proficiency, and that they occasionally did not obtain a grade in English. The pupils’ low English level connected with their ongoing Swedish acquisition made it difficult for the teachers to adapt their teaching. The Results also implied that many newly arrived pupils used English as a communication language, which may have a positive impact on their learning.

    Idyllen som krossas: En kvalitativ studie om hur lokalpress och kvällspress gestaltar en bygd efter ett mord2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine how the local newspapers (Barometern, Falu-kuriren, Hudiksvalls tidning, Skaraborgs Allehanda) and the tabloid (Aftonbladet) portray the local community in a village after a murder occured and how it affects the image of the village over time. In this study we therefore studied four different murders that occured in small swedish villages. We analysed how the newspapers construct the imagined community after the murder and what similarities and differences they have.

     

    In this study we applied the critical discourse analysis and in total we investigated twelve articles that all had social constructions and therefore were relevant for the study. The results show that both the local newspapers and the tabloid Aftonbladet portrayed that the murders had a huge impact on the community. The safe place that they once knew is gone and therefore they seek support in each other and stand united. The victim gets more space in the articles than the perpetrator. We also discovered that you don’t have to live in the village to be a part of the community as long as you show compassion. The difference showed that the local newspapers only included the locals to mourn while the evening paper included the whole nation to be a part of the imagined community.

    Delaktighet utifrån?: En studie kring olika nivåer av romerska kontakter i Skandinavien 0-500 e. Kr.2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Focusing on contacts and influences between Scandinavia and the Roman Empire during Roman Iron Age and Migration Period, the essay aims to present a way to divide those contacts into different sets of levels. Looking into the archaeological material of four Scandinavian places with rich contexts of Roman objects, the central settlement complexes of Uppåkra and Gudme and the graves of Öremölla and Hoby, the object is to try to classify certain objects into certain levels of connections to the Roman Empire. The contacts will be sorted out in levels from “regular” of less importance contacts to individual contacts where an involvement of a deeper perspective for the Scandinavian society can be identified.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay is focused on Öland during the Iron Age, with focus specifically on the Roman Iron Age and the Migration period. The study takes its starting point in the large number of fortifications that was active across Öland at the time. The essays main area of investigation will be the central and southern parts of Öland as the fortifications, together with other parts of the Iron Age society around them such as graves and settlement, will be presented. The landscape in which the fortifications and their surroundings are placed will also be described. With the Migration Period being a keyword for almost all the fortifications on Öland, the subject will also be to describe if any sort of change can be seen in the settlement patterns during this unstable and troubled time. This will all be presented trough sources describing work of the archaeological investigations that has been done in those places.

    An eighteenth-century ecology of knowledge: patronage and natural history2014In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 6, p. 1275-1297Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the construction and dissemination of natural-history knowledge in the eighteenth century.  It takes the mapping and narration of Orkney as a case study, focusing on the local minister and amateur natural-historian George Low and his network of patron-client relationships with such prominent natural historians as Joseph Banks and Thomas Pennant.  It focuses too on Low’s network of informants and assistants among local island farmers, and argues that canonical natural-history texts were the products of collaborative and interdependent processes that included a large number of actors from all strata of society. To conceptualise how natural-history knowledge was created in this period, the article applies the metaphoric description ‘an ecology of knowledge’. This approach enables a focus on a large number of actors, their collaboration and influence on each other, while also paying attention to asymmetrical power relationships in which competition and appropriation took place.

    En gång gruvstad - alltid gruvstad?: Kirunas näringsliv under förändring - men hur och mot vad?2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I Kiruna pågår i detta nu en enorm stadsomvandling. Delar av staden, bland annat stadens centrum, ska flyttas cirka tre kilometer i östlig riktning. Anledningen till detta är att gruvbrytningen som pågår i Kiirunavaaragruvan, väster om staden, orsakar markdeformationer vilket gör att marken i de berörda delarna av staden snart inte längre kommer att vara beboeliga. Denna uppsats undersöker hur stadsomvandlingen påverkar Kiruna, samt hur staden arbetar för att den ska klara av en framtid där det inte längre finns någon gruvverksamhet i staden. Näringslivsfrågor är något som står i centrum för uppsatsen, framförallt vilka försök som görs för att kunna differentiera stadens näringsliv. Utöver hur en sådan näringslivsförändring kan gå till undersöker uppsatsen hur stadsomvandlingen kan bidra med andra saker till staden, hur Kiruna genom stadsomvandlingen ska kunna bli en bättre och attraktivare plats att bo på. För att få svar på uppsatsens frågeställningar har kvalitativa intervjuer genomförts med personer som arbetar med Kirunas stadsomvandling. Dessutom har litteraturstudier använts som ett komplement. Uppsatsen innehåller även en jämförande studie där Kirunas näringslivsförändring jämförs med två andra städers näringslivsförändringar, nämligen näringslivsförändringarna i Llanelli, Wales och i Barnsley, England. Resultatet lyfter fram två näringar fram inom vilka det finns förhoppningar att sysselsättningen ska öka inom. Dessa näringar är turistnäringen och rymdverksamheten, vilka redan är sysselsätter många kirunabor. Gällande hur Kiruna ska bli en attraktivare plats att bo på genom stadsomvandlingen lyfts flera aspekter fram. Bland annat bostadsbyggande, för att råda bot på den bostadsbrist som sedan länge funnits i staden. Dessutom lyfts det fram att staden vill förändra sin bild, från att ha varit en gruvstad med manliga yrken och manliga ideal till att bli en modern och jämställd stad där alla människor ska kunna känna sig hemma. Den jämförande studien visar på både likheter och skillnader mellan de olika städernas näringslivsförändringar. Något som alla tre städer har gemensamt är att när näringslivet har förändrats så har även en förändring av stadens utseende skett, det har skett stadsomvandlingar i alla tre städer, även om ingen givetvis kan mäta sig med omfattningen på Kirunas stadsomvandling. Den största skillnaden mellan jämförelsestäderna och Kiruna är att i jämförelsestäderna fanns det ingen förutbestämd strategi för hur de förlorade arbetstillfällena inom gruvnäringen skulle ersättas. Detta ledde till att städerna fick en stor arbetslöshet fram till ett sätt att ersätta de förlorade arbetstillfällena skapades. I och med att det i Kiruna redan finns en plan för hur dessa arbetstillfällen ska ersättas kommer Kiruna förhoppningsvis undvika att hamna i samma situation.

    Watch Out: En undersökning om hur tid påverkar låtars musikaliska element2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I detta arbete har jag undersökt huruvida min låtskrivningsprocess skiljer sig utifrån fem

    musikaliska element när den skrivs under tidspress. - Melodisk utveckling (omfång/register) - Rytmisk variation - Variation (låtens helhet)

    - Repetition - Hookar Jag har, utifrån tre bestämda tidsramar, skrivit fem låtar per tidsram, gjort demo-versioner på samtliga och fått de musikaliska elementen betygsatta av en lyssningsgrupp. Dessa betyg har jag sedan sammanställt för att se hur lyssningsgruppen har uppfattat låtarna utifrån elementen och om det då finns några skillnader när jag skriver utifrån de olika tidsramarna. Resultatet visar att det finns en tydlig olikhet mellan den kortaste och de längre tidsramarna, då det finns en påtaglig saknad av de musikaliska elementen vid den kortare tidsramen. Differensen mellan de längre tidsramarna är mer diffus men vid den längsta tidsramen är de musikaliska elementen mer närvarande, hos samtliga element, än vid den näst längsta tidsramen.

    Rusdryckens vara eller inte vara: En jämförelsestudie mellan två lokala tidningar inför och efter folkomröstningen 19222013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This survey has as its aim to see how two local newspapers in the city Växjö and the region of Kronoberg in Sweden reported and acted in connection to the referendum taking place in 1922 whether or not alcoholic beverages should be prohibited. In order to do this we analyzed Smålandsposten and Nya Växjöbladet to see their reporting. We found that the numbers of articles and debate contributions increased during the months closer to the referendum. We also found that Nya Växjöbladet where slightly supporting the prohibition of alcohol while Smålandsposten where against it. The arguments used by both sides during the debate were also analyzed. Here, we discovered, that many of the arguments where used several times and by many different operators. Some of the most used arguments that were negative to the prohibition were related to the possible economic struggles that could affect the Swedish society. The arguments used by operators against the prohibition were based on Christian values and the greater good of society.

    The Shakespearean Stahr: Using Genette’s Theory of Intertextuality to Compare The Last Tycoon to Shakespeare’s Tragedies2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay uses Gerard Genette’s theory of intertextuality – in particular, architextuality - in order to establish the connection between Shakespearean tragedies and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last novel, The Last Tycoon. The essay relies mainly on known Shakespeare critic A.C Bradley and the categories he uses in order to establish what makes a Shakespearean tragedy a Shakespearean tragedy. This framework will then be used to further elaborate upon the architextual connection between Shakespeare and Fitzgerald. The essay also compares the characters from The Last Tycoon directly to characters from Shakespeare’s tragedies in order to further show the intertextual connections. For example, Fitzgerald's main character Monroe Stahr is compared to Julius Caesar, from Shakespeare's play of the same name, while the antagonist Mr Brady is compared to both Cassius from the previously mentioned Julius Caesar, as well as Iago from Othello

    "Vad betyder zombie jag vet inte": Andraspråkselevers epistemiska positioneringar i samtal 2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur andraspråkstalare gör lärande genom tal-i-interaktion. Frågorna som ställts är hur talarna gör för att orientera sig mot en gemensam förståelse och hur lärandet blir synligt genom talarnas agerande. Studiens teoretiska utgångspunkt är epistemisk positionering, där talarna positionerar sig som vetande (k+), eller ovetande (k-). Materialet i studien består av en videoinspelning av ett samtal mellan två andraspråkstalare när de spelar ett pedagogiskt datorspel. De försöker tillsammans komma fram till betydelsen av ordet zombie som förekommer i spelet. Samtalet har transkriberats och analyserats enligt CA-metoden. Varje samtalstur, alltså den tiden den ena talaren har ordet har studerats utifrån om talaren positionerat sig som vetande eller ovetande i fråga om ordet zombie. Resultatet visar hur deltagarna på olika sätt, även genom till exempel gester visar om de är vetande eller ovetande. Den ena deltagaren framhärdar som vetande av ordet zombie trots att den andre gång på gång ifrågasätter om förklaringen stämmer. Först när den deltagare som positionerat sig som vetande av ordet zombie också positionerar sig som ovetande gör deltagarna lärande

    Visualisering av platser: En undersökning av Uddevallas destinationsimage online2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Visual representations are important components in the construction of our social life. They depict the world around us and shape peoples everyday behavior. They are a medium through which we communicate and can be understood as social constructions dependent upon cultural understandings. Pictorial representations have become part of the economic sphere and are used in tourism in order to overcome its immaterial character by providing a physical evidence for the tourist. Coloured by tourism ideology, they transform a place into a destination. This study examines visual representations of Uddevalla through a lens of promotional photographs published on Instagram and the online tourism destination image they project based on a compound content analysis-semiotic analysis method. The aim is to exemplify the visualisation of places and provide an understanding for the explicit and implicit messages conveyed through denotative and connotative signs in pictures. This is done by answering three questions: (1) What representations are being used to form a destination image and what image is being projected? (2) How does the mediated massage within the pictures correspond to the destination profile?(3) In what way is ideology being expressed? The result show a synecdochical image of a coastal destination which should be experienced outdoors through physical activities or by gazing over picturesque and idyllic landscapes. However, questions remain regarding the relationship between the projected destination image and the intended destination profile developed by tourism planners.

    Abstract [en]

    This study examines if and how the use of writing process and peer review can be beneficial to the text quality when writing a short essay in a foreign language. The study focuses on a group of Swedish high school students, 17 and 18 years of age, studying their second foreign language, German, with no prior experience of working with peer review in any subject. To investigate the efficiency of the use of writing process and peer review, four research questions were formulated:

     

    1   To what extent does peer review lead to an improvement of the text quality?

         a)  What comments to the texts do the students give during the group discussion?

         b)  What do the students change in their own text after the group discussion?

         c)  What are the students’ attitudes toward the work with peer review?

     

    In order to understand how the students worked with the comments and how it affected the text quality, the conversations were compared with the actual changes made between the two text versions. The comments were mostly very polite. Even when the students criticized, they tried to give feedback very gently. All texts were improved after the peer review, although most of the errors from the first draft were still present in the second version. After the writing of the second draft, the students took a survey, where they were able to express their views on various aspects of the project. The students were mostly positive to this way of working with texts, although some of them found that they did not know enough German yet. Nevertheless, most of them wanted to try it again, to see their own progress.

    Är alla maskulina?: En kvalitativ studie om konstruktionen av maskulinitet i representationen av heterosexuella män i Attitude Magazine2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    For many gay men, media is a crucial component in the process of creating an identity and finding support and guidance. Studies show that gay men are the group in society most strongly effected by the representation in media of societal ideals, and more specifically print media. In the past, gay men have been subjected to heteronormative representations through media of what being a gay man entails, in which he was portrayed as feminine; a process which has lead some gay men to attempt to adhere to a stereotypically masculine identity in order to find a sense of belonging and connection to society. The heterosexual man became a guidepost in this process. Through hegemonic masculinity, the process became problematic as homosexuality was considered less masculine by default, and the gay men were stuck in an identity crisis based in gender-identification and a need to distance themselves from feminine ideals. The purpose of this study was to analyze the construction of masculinity through the representation of heterosexual males in a print media aimed at gay men. Through the work of Erving Goffman and Sut Jhally, a semiotic analysis of 94 images of heterosexual males in 11 issues from 2013 of Attitude Magazine were analyzed for signs of masculinity. The results showed that the heterosexual males portrayed in the magazine were represented as stereotypically masculine, where signs of femininity were subdued by the enforcement of a masculine code. The findings suggest that heterosexual masculinity has a place in gay media and can be problematic, but that the representations also allow for a certain degree of deviation from strict hegemonic masculinity.

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka om fotbollssupportrar tillämpar sitt supporterskap som ett sätt att finna mening med sitt liv, samt undersöka om denna känsla av mening appliceras på deras vardag som ett nav vilket de bygger sitt liv. Mitt material bygger på intervjuer som jag genomfört med sex fotbollssupportrar, vilka stödjer olika lag i Sverige. Mitt material har analyserats främst med Peter Berger, Brigitte Berger och Hansfried Kellners The Homeless Mind där de menar att i kölvattnet av moderniseringen och sekularisering upplever människan en avsaknad av identitet och en psykologisk hemlöshet som människan försöker undvika genom att hitta nya sätt att hitta mening och syfte i livet. Fredrik Schougs Intima Samhällsvisioner och Christian Engstrands Religion och Fotboll har också varit användbara i min studie. Alla mina deltagare visar tecken på att de använder supporterskapet för att finna en gemenskap, en identitet och ett existentiellt alternativ i livet. Flera av mina deltagare betonar att supporterskapet ger dem en identitet. Med mina resultat skulle jag hävda att mina deltagare hittar en känsla av mening och syfte med sitt supporterskap, samt att denna gemenskap kan fungera som ett sekulärt existentiellt alternativ till den konfessionella kyrkan.

    Heja Sverige – eller framåt Malmö FF?: En kvalitativ studie om hur Aftonbladet och Sydsvenskan framställer landslag och klubblag2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to examine how the Swedish sports journalism, tabloids and local newspapers, portrayed the Swedish national football team during the 2018 Russia World Cup and Malmö FF in the 2015/2016 Champions League competition. The main purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between sports journalism and nationality. The question formulations to this study were: how does the sports journalism portray the Swedish national team and Malmö FF, and what are the similarities and differences between Aftonbladets and Sydsvenskans portrayal of the teams?

     

    I made a discourse analysis out of twelve chronicles, six from Aftonbladet and six from Sydsvenkan. For each of the three group stage games Sweden played in the World Cup, I analyzed one chronicle from both Aftonbladet and Sydsvenskan. Further, I analyzed one chronicle from Aftonbladet and one from Sydsvenskan for each of the three home games Malmö FF played in the Champions League. It turned out that Aftonbladet portrayed Sweden with a lot of metaphors and wrote about the Swedish national team as if the readers were a part of the team. Aftonbladet had more distance and caution when portraying Malmö FF. With Sydsvenskan it was the contrary. Sydsvenskan portrayed Malmö FF as if they were a part of the team and occasionally seemed to be biased. Sydsvenskan portrayed the Swedish national with more caution, distance and did not portray Sweden with the same empathy as Malmö FF.

    Bordet och compact living: Effektiv yta i små lägenheter2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Målet med detta projekt har varit att underlätta växlingen mellan arbete och vila för de som bor litet och arbetar i hemmet. Bakgrunden till detta är att vi idag har en stark bostadsbrist i Sverige och att det kommer behöva byggas fler små lägenheter. Produkter som är anpassade för mindre boyta kommer därför behöva tillverkas.

    Research har varit en stor del i projektet och innefattar användarundersökningar, compact living, bordets historia och hållbar produktion.

    Slutresultatet har blivit ett bord som passar till både arbete och återhämtning med möjlighet till miljöombyte och förvaring. Bordet består utav två bordskivor som användaren kan nyttja. Grundtanken är att användaren ska ha möjlighet att förvara sitt arbete utan att behöva plocka undan någonting och då fritt kunna använda den övre bordsskivan.

    Min förhoppning är att bordet får en lång livslängd och fungerar för olika livssituationer samt att användaren knyter an till produkten. Detta utifrån en hållbarhetsaspekt och som motreaktion mot konsumtionens slit-och-släng beteende.

    Att blanda hudfärg: vithetsdiskurser i högstadieskolans bildundervisning2015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet för denna studie är att undersöka vilka vithetsdiskurser som artikuleras visuellt och verbalt i högstadieskolans bildundervisning i konsthistoria, samt att undersöka hur elever förhåller sig till dessa diskurser i det bildarbete som genomförs i anslutning till momentet. Dessutom syftar studien till att diskutera bildlärarens uppdrag att lyfta frågor om etniska maktrelationer och samtidigt överföra ett nationellt kulturarv, enligt aktuella styrdokument. Studiens övergripande frågeställningar är: Vilka vithetsdiskurser artikuleras och reproduceras, visuellt och verbalt, i det material som introducerar momentet konsthistoria i högstadieskolans bildundervisning? Hur förhåller sig elever till dessa diskurser i det bildarbete som genomförs i anslutning till momentet? De teoretiska utgångspunkterna är diskursteori, socialsemiotik, och intersektionell vithetsteori. Materialet består av ett introduktionsmaterial som en bildlärare använt när denna introducerat momentet konsthistoria för en klass i årskurs 9, intervjuer med åtta elever från denna klass och åtta bilder som dessa elever arbetat med i anslutning till momentet. Materialet analyseras med diskursanalys. Resultat, analys och tolkning visar att presentationen reproducerar en vit, västerländsk, hegemonisk konsthistorieskrivning i sin presentation av området. Vithetsdiskursen förblir omarkerad genom att inte artikuleras alls. Eleverna förhåller sig till denna diskurs genom att uppfatta den artikulerade konsthistorien som den enda giltiga och nödvändiga för att ingå i en västeuropeisk och nationell gemenskap. Dessutom markeras vithetens hegemoni i det praktiska bildarbetet genom att synliggöra hur hegemonin reglerar hur elever blandar (vit) hudfärg. Resultatet leder till en diskussion om aktuella styrdokument och hur bildlärare kan använda normkritisk (bild)pedagogik för att markera vitheten som norm och därigenom motverka exkludering.

    Killar som stirrar på män: – om fem killars relationer till visuella medier och kroppen som en del av ett identitetsskapande projekt2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien syftar till att diskutera hur killar förhåller sig till bilder av maskulinitet som tillgängliggörs via visuella medier, samt hur denna typ av bilder tillsammans med text uttrycker maskulinitet i relation till kroppen som en del av ett identitetsskapande projekt. Studiens teoretiska utgångspunkter ligger i R.W. Connells teori om socialt förkroppsligande och den maskulina hegemonin samt Judith Butlers teori om att kön konstrueras performativt. Denna kvalitativa studie har följt fem fotbollsutövande- och intresserade killar i 17-18 års åldern under fem veckor. Det har genomförts tre fokusgruppssamtal och fem veckors kontinuerlig deltagande observation. Ett visuellt material har samlats in utifrån deltagarnas utsagor om vilka medier de frekvent konsumerar. Det insamlade materialet har analyserats genom diskursanalytisk metod. Analys av resultatet visar på att det finns en relation mellan visuella medier och deltagarnas identitetsskapande. Denna relation förstärker konstruktionen av maskulinitet och etablerar traditionella former av mansroller där kontroll, fysisk styrka, handlingskraft och heterosexualitet konstitueras framför feminitet och homosexualitet, som istället marginaliseras eller utesluts helt.

    ”Om man hänger med andra känner man sig mer trygg, man känner sig inte utanför.”: En studie om inkludering och svenska som andraspråk2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka vad elever som läser svenska som andraspråk tänker om inkludering och exkludering i skolan. Fyra fokusgruppsamtal genomfördes med elever i årskurs 9, där de hade möjlighet att diskutera anledningar till att de trivs i skolan och vad de har för syn på svenska som andraspråk. För att sortera ut materialet ifrån de transkriberade intervjuerna användes en tematisk innehållsanalys. Resultatet är sedan indelat i en horisontell och en vertikal analys. Studiens resultat visar att majoriteten av eleverna som deltog i studien inte känner sig exkluderade av att läsa svenska som andraspråk separerat ifrån sin ordinarie klass. Det framkommer även att eleverna anser att svenska som andraspråk är lättare än ämnet svenska, något de också tror att elever som inte läser svenska som andraspråk tycker.

    Den retoriska verktygslådan: En fallstudie kring socialdemokratiska partiledares användning av retoriska verktyg för att tala och berätta2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Få en förståelse kring hur politiker använder sig av retoriska strategier och verktyg för at.t förmedla ett budskap.

    Metod Kvalitativa retoriska analyser av ett tal vardera från fem socialdemokratiska partiledare.

    Resultat: Huvuddrag från resultatet är att samtliga politiker tenderar att använda sig av retoriska verktyg så som ethos, logos, pathos samt av retoriska stilfigurer så som metaforer samt anaforer. I många situationer använder politikerna de retoriska verktygen för att antingen styrka sitt argument eller för att lyfta fram en fråga som de vill belysa.

    Slutsats: Det går genom denna undersökning att konstatera att det finns retoriska verktyg som tenderar till att återkomma i socialdemokratiska partiledares tal. De mest använda retoriska verktygen är ethos, logos samt pathos. Även de retoriska stilfigurerna metaforer samt anaforer har varit återkommande verktyg hos politikerna

    Läsbarhet i läromedel: En innehållsanalys av läromedel i SO för årskurs 7-9 utifrån systemisk - funktionell lingvistik2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I studien undersöktes meningar som innehöll begreppet demokrati i tre läromedel i SO för årskurs 7-9, med syftet att undersöka kontexterna kring begreppet demokrati. Systemisk – funktionell lingvistik användes som metod för att klargöra hur texterna konstruerade processer och deltagare, samt texternas metafunktionella strukturer. I studien mättes även läsbarhetsindex, långa ord, meningslängd och nominaliseringar för att se vilket av läromedlen som lämpade sig bäst i undervisning för svenska som andraspråkselever.

    Resultatet visade att läromedlen skilde sig åt vad gäller abstraktionsgrad trots att LIX-värdet inte skilde sig markant. Det visade sig även att tydlig struktur som rubriksättning, korta stycken och ett intresseväckande innehåll sammanföll med en mer lättillgänglig och konkret text, som anknöt till elevernas repertoar.

    Kreativitet i text och bild: En studie om gestaltning av kreativitet I Sven Nordqvists bilderbok Pettson får julbesök2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur kreativitet gestaltas i Sven Nordqvists bilderbok Pettson får julbesök. Hur text och bild samspelar med varandra i bilderboken, och hur kreativitet gestaltas i detta samspel. Men även en diskussion om bilderboken kan stimulera barns kreativitet. I uppsatsen används kreativitetsteori och teorier kring bilderboken som term varvat med intermedial teori. Metoden är intermedial. Analysen utgår från de här fyra kriterier för kreativitet; problemlösning, fantasi, originalitet och divergent tänkande. De här fyra kriterierna var de som jag kom fram till i teorin att de utgör kärnan av vad kreativitet innebär. Analysen visar även att alla de här fyra kriterierna av kreativitet finns gestaltat i Pettson får julbesök, och på flertal ställen så går dessa in i varandra och finns därmed representerade i samma scen. Kreativiteten gestaltas både i text och bild, ibland i båda och i vissa fall i ett av dessa medier. Jag kom även fram till att en bilderbok som Pettson får julbesök kan stimulera barns kreativitet, på grund av minneslagring som bidrar till nya idéer.

    Ansvarsfulla män och omoraliska kvinnor: En narrativ analys av det politiska mediedrevet rörande Borg, Billström, Borelius och Stegö Chilò2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In October 2006 the media began investigating the four ministers Billström, Borg, Borelius and Stegö Chilò who were all being accused of miner tax fraud. The two women, Stegö Chilò and Borelius became the primary victims of an extensive media hunt where the media already had made their minds up; the women had to go. The more the women tried to explain themselves, they only seemed to be digging themselves into a deeper hole and ten days into the “hunt”, the media got their way, the women resigned while the men, even today remain on their positions. What was it then that made the outcome so different regarding the four ministers when the only thing to really set them apart was their genders?

    With support of theories from Giddens, Habermas and Thompson as well as theories regarding media, gender and the medias ethical responsibility we have in a qualitatively narrative analysis studied 20 articles from Dagens Nyheter and Expressen. This contributed to the discovery of how men and women in these articles are presented within different power structures, gender representations, themes and roles. We also found that the two Newspapers, in the witch-hunt that took place, failed in their responsibility toward society when they ignored the relevant news reports in favor of an entertaining tale of responsible men and immoral women.

    Kvinna inta position!: Kritisk diskursanalys av podcasten 'Penntricket'2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study is to examine how feminist activists in Sweden observe and talk about social problems related to feminism to resist existing power discourses. The questions examined is: What stereotypical portrayals of women were noticed by feminist activists in the podcast ‘Penntricket’?; in which manner does the feminist activists talk of these stereotypical portrayals in order to resist existing power discourses?

    A critical discourse analysis was carried out on six chosen parts of the podcast Penntricket where the hosts talked about stereotypical portrayals of women and how to resist existing power discourses.

    The results of the study demonstrates that the feminist activists observed and talked about three stereotypic portrayals of women; ‘the responsible mother’; how ‘the woman is expected to have children’ and ‘the attractive woman’. The resistance differed within the stereotypic portrayals of women. The feminist activists resistance of the stereotypic portrayal of ‘the responsible mother’ was to make the unequal parenting visible. In resisting the stereotypic portrayals of how ‘the woman is expected to have children’ the feminist activists talked about the importance of opening up for more acceptable categories for women who does not desire to have children. The feminist activists resistance of the stereotypic portrayals of ‘the attractive women’ was to make visible that mothers manners can affect their daughters and make visible what happens when women give each other compliment for their looks.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to illustrate how the Swedish tabloid press construct their

    sports sections front pages and what they present on these pages. A second purpose, and

    by the first following, was to investigate the items these newspapers offer the audience

    to add to their daily agendas. The aim to show a bigger picture of the front pages

    content was reached by implementing a content analysis of 196 front pages from the

    two largest tabloid newspapers in Sweden, Aftonbladet and Expressen, during a period

    of four years. The study examined 98 items per newspaper and since the aim was to

    examine sports journalism the units were chosen from the two newspapers sports

    sections, Sportbladet and SportExpressen. The great conclusions that were made during

    this process were the differences in between genders, the dominating sports and what

    big part sponsors have in sports. The most common front page shows a Swedish man

    playing football in the age between 20-35. A less common page is woman, playing any

    sport. She is only found on nine of a hundred front pages. As in the case of men,

    football is the dominating sport in Swedish tabloid press. On second place we found ice

    hockey. What we also could find was the big part sponsors have in sports. We saw the

    logos of sponsors on every second front page.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper concerns in which ways people from local communities’ value cultural heritage sites in their region and how they perceive their possibility to be an active part in its management. There have over the last decade been a number of performed studies showing that civic participation in the governing of heritage sites is to be sought for, simultaneously being essential when it comes to the benefits that may be achieved. There is, however, a criticism towards the managers of these cultural heritage sites that they fail to consider the local community, and consequently losing  peoples trust.  Identifying that field as an area that requires further studies, this case study aim to examine how people from the local community values the cultural heritage site Äskhults by and in which manner they feel able to participate in its management. Interviews is the method this study is based upon, where i have conducted eight separate interviews which has been structured around predetermined questions.

     

    In this particular study the results show that a historical value is frequently referred to by the locals, and is what most of them treasured about the heritage site. It also became clear that the respondents highly valued their communication with the operators involved, however, the respondents impression on whether they actually could influence the decisions and governing of the cultural heritage site was less distinct and left some to be desired.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of my study was to examine how orthorexia is constructed in the Swedish tabloids. The main question examined was in what way the Swedish tabloids contributes to define orthorexia as a social problem. But in order to answer this I also had to make up a couple of smaller questions which was; what in the texts helps to understand orthorexia as something dangerous and something that poses a health risk, what in the texts produces orthorexia as a new and growing eating disorder and which stereotypes are to be found of the ones that are sick. 

    Using a discourse analysis of six news articles from the two biggest tabloids in Sweden, showed three different themes; the new and dangerous disease, a problem and stereotypes. By using the framing theory two various frames of orthorexia was found. These were a new type of eating disorder that framed orthorexia as a quite unknown disorder and which to begin with was questioned as an eating disorder and said just to be a trend. But also when healthy become unhealthy that framed orthorexia as a dangerous disorder that in the most extreme cases could lead to death. Orthorexia is in this frame descried as something wrong. Using the framing theory three different stereotypes showed. These were; the trendorthorectic, the elite athlete who became ill and the one with the thought full of obsessions. The first of the three stereotypes is the most modern and takes healthy to its most extreme. The second one is driven by a hang-up on the well-trained body that it ones had. And finally, the third one is the stereotype that best matches how the tabloids frame orthorexia. It also the most of extreme of the three stereotypes. Unlike the other stereotypes this one is driven by obsessive thoughts about both health, exercise and food. 

    My study shows that orthorexia is defined as when something healthy become unhealthy and is framed as something both dangerous and wrong in the Swedish tabloids. The tabloids help to understand orthorexia as an accepted eating disorder and is constructed as a social problem that we have to do something about.

    ”Det gynnar en att tänka etiskt. Eller så här […] att framstå som att man tänker etiskt”: En kvalitativ studie om kvinnliga bloggares etiska förhållningssätt gentemot sina läsare.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Journalists have their code of ethics to consider while writing and pubishing texts. Unlike journalists, bloggers do not have such ethical codes to approach. As a result of the technical explosion and the Internet, blogs have become a large phenomenon in our society and are being read by a large number of people, mainly young women, every day. The media society and also the media modality has changed as an outgrowth of this. However, bloggers still affect people and they sometimes have a larger audience than a newspaper, so the question is how they think of media ethics.

    The aim of this qualitative study is to investigate how female bloggers think of their ethical responsibility towards their audience and also how they think of ethics within the over all blogosphere. The investigation is based on eight semi-structured interviews with female bloggers that has been analysed by using media ethics theory. 

    The results of this examination shows that female bloggers think ethically towards their auidence in terms of credibility, reliability and honesty. Moreover, common sense is something to bring online as well, and in fact the differences should not be to big between online and offline behaviour. The outcomes also indicate that it favours you as a blogger to think ethical to be able to keep up a good relation to the audience. This is something that has changed over time. Today bloggers seem to be influenced more and more from journalists than they used to back when the weblog first came. Codes of ethic seem to be important to the respondees, but an agreement about the design of them still appears to be left to the future.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I have studied the two new religious phenomena, Temple of the Jedi Order and Whovianism, based on the cognitive concept of man dominated by schemas that characterize the outcome of adequate response to new situations. This principle is about how man faces new situations through old knowledge and experience of similar events. For this study, I analyzed selected stories in which individuals describe their religious interest and involvement in the Star Wars movies, and the related religious community Temple of the Jedi Order, as well as the television series Doctor Who, with the associated religious community Whovianism. This study was inspired by phenomenographic method by which researchers focus on the perceived and how it is conveyed in the respective story. The results of this study show that new religious phenomena, such as the Temple of the Jedi Order and Whovianism, can be explained using the theory of cognitive schemas.  The study shows that the individuals, whose stories have been examined, use ancient knowledge and experiences on the different aspects conveyed by Star Wars and Doctor Who and through this a new religious community is born.
