    En fallstudie om restaurang Danilos storytellingkoncept2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays it is evident that companies try to keep a high product- and service level. For companies to be successful, differentiation is more about feelings, design and stories. As a result of changes in consumption habits there is an increased need for meaningful experiences. More companies turn to storytelling as a way of offering the customer emotional experiences. From a business economic perspective storytelling is a tool for packaging of products and services and also a tool for communication of the same products and services. When a lot of time and resources have been used for creating a storytelling concept, it is important to ensure results of an implementation. Our wish is therefore to study storytelling with an interest starting from what actually is created in relation to the intended storytelling experience. The research questions examined through this paper are:

    ”What characterizes storytelling and how can storytelling be used as a concept?” and ”To what extent is the intended experience created through the whole process, from creation of the storytelling concept to consumption of it?”

    Through a case study we examine the storytelling concept for Danilo restaurant, a new established restaurant located inside the movie center Bergakungen. Empirical data is collected through interviews with Stylt Trampoli, the company that developed the concept, CEO and personnel at restaurant Danilo and customers. Primarily, theories about narratology, storytelling, service architecture and creation of experiences in service companies are being used in this paper.

    The analyze shows that the intended experience of the storytelling concept for restaurant Danilo is communicated well in the beginning of the process but decreases on the way to the customer. Shortages were found primarily when establishing the concept through the personnel. A lot of customers were positive towards restaurant Danilo and its interior, nevertheless the intended storytelling concept does not reach the customer.

    Kommunikativt arbetssätt

    En studie om lärares syn på kommunikativt arbetssätt

    Communicative working procedure

    - a study about teachers sight of communicative working procedure.

    Antal sidor: 37

    Syftet med studien är att beskriva och tolka hur lärare uppfattar kommunikativt arbetssätt, med fokus på hur de planerar, genomför och vad de vill uppnå med ett kommunikativt arbetssätt. För att uppnå syftet har jag genomfört en kvalitativ undersökning, där jag har intervjuat fyra stycken lärare samt observerat två stycken lärare i en klassrumsmiljö. Den teoretiska grunden för studien ligger i att inledningsvis förklara, kommunikation, kommunikation i grupp för att sedan gå över till läraren i sammanhanget av kommunikativt arbetssätt. Resultatet av min undersökning visar att delaktighet är av stor vikt i kommunikativt arbetssätt. Vidare framkommer det att eleverna har stor inverkan på arbetssättets innehåll och att sociala mål vid kommunikativt arbetssätt är viktiga. Jag ser genom min studie bland annat att lärare som accepterar olika elevers intressen skapar förutsättning för delaktighet inom kommunikativt arbetssätt. Innehållet av planeringen inför kommunikativt arbetssätt pendlar mellan lärarstyrt och elevstyrt. Jag kan utifrån min studie se att lärare skjuter begreppet makt i kommunikativt arbetssätt till att handla om fördelning av ansvar.

    Animal Imagery and Religious Symbolism in Joseph Conrad's 2001Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate how Joseph Conrad has used animal imagery and religious symbolism in “Heart of Darkness,” and determine if these tools are somehow linked to the theme of the story. Close reading has been applied in order to be able to go through the entire story in search of these often well-hidden tools. Considering the fact that the story in focus of the analysis is believed by some, including myself, to be a long short story rather than a short novel, this method of approach has proved to be highly useful. First a discussion about a possible theme in “Heart of Darkness” is presented, followed by a brief comment on Conrad’s personal life philosophy and view on the use of symbolic devices in literary works. In order to determine the differences between symbols and imagery, as well as theme, subject and topic, a short discussion of terminology has been included.

    Much of the discussion in the analysis relies heavily upon articles and books by critics who have focused exclusively on symbolism and imagery in “Heart on Darkness” and other works by Conrad. The scholarly names worth mentioning in connection with the discussion about animal imagery are Olof Lagercrantz, John A. Palmer, and Samir Elbarbary. The critics Anthony Fothergill and Cedric Watts explore religious symbolism in general, whereas P.K. Saha and Rita A. Bergenholtz focus on particular aspects of it, such as Buddhism and Greek mythology.

    The analysis section is for the most part a combination between my own personal interpretations of “Heart of Darkness” and those made by others. It is divided into two major sections, Animal Imagery and Religious Symbolism. The latter, furthermore, comprises two subgroups. The conclusion suggests that Conrad used symbolism and imagery as narratological tools in order to present us with the theme of morality in the story.

    The Savage and the Gentleman: A Comparative Analysis of Two Vampire Characters in Bram Stoker's Dracula and Anne Rice's The Vampire Lestat2000Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The creatures known as vampires have inspired authors for several hundred years. These beings are stereotypically described as belonging to a “nocturnal species” who live “in shadows” and drink “our lives in secrecy” (Auerbach 1). However, they have by now appeared so often in literary works, and in so many different shapes and sizes, that they are much too nuanced to be called ‘stereotypes.’

    This essay will make a historical comparison between two fictional vampires, one hundred years apart, in order to show that a change has taken place when it comes to how vampires as fictional characters have been portrayed in terms of their appearance, their psychology, and their roles in society. The first novel chosen is, for obvious reasons, Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It was written at the turn of the nineteenth century by a male author and is probably the first novel that comes into mind when the word vampire is mentioned. The second novel, The Vampire Lestat, was written almost a century later, in 1986, by a female author, who, to readers of vampire fiction, is a worthy successor of Stoker. Her name is Anne Rice, best known for her debut novel Interview with the Vampire (1976).

    The two novels are naturally chosen because of their similarities, but perhaps even more so because of their differences. Dracula is a typically Victorian Gothic novel, which is set in the remote mountains of Transylvania, and in the modern capital London, contemporary to when the novel was published. It is written in epistolary form but never allows for the main character, Count Dracula, to defend or explain himself and his actions in a first-person narrative.

    The Vampire Lestat, on the other hand, is a Neo-Gothic novel that focus less on conventional Gothic elements, for example gloomy settings, and more on the psychological aspects of what it is like to actually be a vampire. Unlike Dracula, it is the main character’s fictional autobiography in which he recalls his life in France, his transformation into a vampire, and his current career in the United States as a famous rock star. Nina Auerbach calls it “a series of temporal regressions in which Lestat . . . embarks on a backward quest out of the knowable world” (172).

    Both novels used in this analysis are thus part of the Gothic genre, one being a Victorian Gothic and the other Neo-Gothic, but there are significant differences between the two. I will investigate how these differences reveal themselves when it comes to setting and plot. However, the novels are similar in that they present two male vampires who belong to the nobility and have lived on through the centuries. The vampires both want to be where the power is, which means, in the case of Stoker’s Dracula, that he tries to conquer nineteenth-century London and seduce a young intelligent woman named Mina. Lestat, on the other hand, wants to become a famous twentieth-century rock star in the United States and simply have a good time while being a vampire (Auerbach 6).

    The aim of this essay is to investigate what is typical of the genres that the two novels belong to and determine what has changed in the vampires’ physical appearance, their manners and their ability to adapt to modern society. In the first section of the essay I will give a description of the typical elements of the Gothic and the Neo-Gothic genres and then compare them in order to make a generic description of the two novels, Dracula and The Vampire Lestat. Vampire fiction will be treated as a sub-genre to the Gothic genre. In the succeeding two sections I will make comparative analyses of the two novels, particularly of the main characters, in order to describe the similarities and differences between the two and study how the vampire character has changed during the last century. Much of the discussion, especially regarding Dracula, will be based on Cesare Lombroso’s concept of the ‘criminal man,’ and various modern scholars’ opinion that the vampire is seen as an outcast and a threat to society.

    Life course policies in Europe2006In: European Societies, Vol. 8, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of this cross-country comparative paper is to analyse to which extent the design of national welfare state regimes shape households’ patterns of labour market integration over the life course. An analysis of the various national regulatory frameworks, with special focus on institutional opportunities and/or barriers to combine paid work with other social activities, is provided. Special attention is also given to companies’human resource and time management and whether human resource strategies encompass a life course perspective. By linking the specificity of the various regulatory and social protection systems to the country’s current patterns of labour market integration the authors not only examine the impact of the overall institutional framework on time allocation over the lifecourse but, also the extent to which the current working time options actually affect the sustainability of the social protection systems. Finally, in the conclusion, some policy implications are suggested with a special focus on the needs of finding new forms of time organisation and distribution of income over the life course. According to the authors these new forms of time management might contribute to a better work life balance for employees and might favour positive compromises between firms’ productive efficiency and employees’ needs for a larger control on their time structures over their life course.

    Working Time Options over the Life Course: Changing Social Security Structure2005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on a sample of six European countries – France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. These cover a wide spectrum of the potential societal systems, with variations in labour market characteristics, welfare state regimes, gender relations, level of participation and working time patterns. As the selected countries diverge significantly in terms of social protection systems, working time and gender regimes, they illustrate the impact of the institutional structure on the gender division of paid work and income development over the life course.

    Working Time Options over the Life Course: New Work Patterns and Company Strategies2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Profound socio-economic, demographic and cultural changes currently under way in Europe are modifying the way in which people organise their time and income over the life course. The ageing population, globalisation, the transition from a standard working organisation model to more diversified and individualised structures and changes in the gender division of labour – these are all shifting the boundaries between people’s work and personal lives. At the same time, changes in the timing of entry into and exit from the labour market have considerably reduced the time devoted to paid work.

    Abstract [en]

    The article analyses the potential links between the life course approach andthe Transitional Labour Market (TLM) perspective. It provides some empiricalnevidence of the role played by age and gender in individuals’ situation on thenlabour market, as well as of the heterogeneity in life course patterns in Europe,

    using available data about employment rates, but also transitions matrices. It develops the theoretical foundations of the life course approach, and shows how it can be articulated with the TLM framework. First, the life course approach provides some insights concerning the determinants of transitions, nand their differentiation by age and gender. Second, it offers a conceptualization of time and irreversibility which helps understanding path dependency at both individual and institutional level, and underlines the importance of

    favouring the reversibility of choices through global policy reforms.

    Labour Market Transitions and Time Adjustment over the Life Course2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The standard life course is losing ground. More people - men and women -are active in the labour market than ever before, but work is not their only focus in life. In the rush hour of life, but also at the end of their career people work parttime, combine paid work with care or education or want more leisure. The transitional labour market approach in science and policy making looks at the way people make transitions between different

    domains of life or combine activities in these different domains. This results in questions like: can men cross the bridge to the field of care as easily as women? Which arrangements help women to return to the labour market after they have devoted some years to fulltime motherhood? Is parttime retirement to be preferred to fulltime retirement? And: who benefits from leave and other life course arrangements?

    The chapters of this book give the answers to these and several other questions related to labour market transitions between labour and care and transitions between the labour market and retirement. Scientists will be triggered by the theoretical notions and the firm empirical analyses. Policy makers may find inspiration for solutions to everyday policy problems that they will be facing during the next years as individual lifecourses will become more diverse.

    Patterns of Labour Market Integration in Europe: a Life Course Perspective on Time Policies2007In: Socio-Economic Review, Vol. 5, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the patterns of labourmarket integration over the life course of men and women in seven European ountries. We select a range of household categories coinciding with different phases in the life course and use the European

    Community Household Panel survey to identify four broad national models, which are associated with different state regimes with regards to ‘time policy’. These are the Nordic ‘universal breadwinner’ model (Sweden) of high participation involving long part-time or full-time hours and high employment continuity for both sexesover the life course; the ‘modified breadwinner’ model (France) where family formation and motherhood are still associated with withdrawal from the labour market for some groups of women and where mothers who are employed work predominantly full-time; the Mediterranean exit or full-time model (Italy and Spain) where fewer women are employed, but when employed generally work full-time; finally different models of ‘Maternal part-time work’ (Dutch, German and UK) where motherhood is associated with a reduction in the employment

    rate that is less than that found in the Mediterranean countries and in France, but where part-time hours are the norm for mothers, even when children are older.

    We conclude that the Nordicmodel features the least pronounced gender inequality in time allocation to employment over the life course combined with a greater level of ‘active ageing’ of older workers. This profile is supported by a coherent and integrated set of policies for time and income management over the life course in contrast to the more piecemeal measures that exist in other national models. Hence, the Nordic model offers important insights for EU employment policy.

    Parental Leave in European Companies2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Foundation’s Establishment Survey on Working Time and Work–Life Balance 2004–2005 set out to map the use of a variety of working time arrangements in companies, to assess the reasons for their introduction and their impact. This analytical report addresses the issue of parental leave as well as other forms of extended leave, such as leave to care for sick children or other adult family members. It offers a comparative review of the different national parental leave systems in operation, the differential use of parental leave by women and men across the 21 European countries and a discussion of the factors which influence take-up of parental leave by employees

    Part Time work in European Companies2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report reveals how widespread part-time employment has become as a working arrangement in many parts of Europe. It looks at the national policies influencing part-time employment and the possible impact of this type of work organisation on labour market flexibility. It also examines the variations in the take-up of part-time work between men and women, as well as profiling part-time workers in terms of pay, career prospects and sectoral distribution. In doing so, the report analyses the effects of this working time arrangement on overall work–life balance.

    Time Allocation between Work and Family over the Life-Cycle: A Comparative Gender Analysis of Italy, France, Sweden2007Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the extent to which changes in household composition over the life course affect the gender division of labour. It identifies and analyses cross-country disparities between France, Italy, Sweden and United States, using most recent data available from the Time Use National Surveys. We focus on gender differences in the allocation of time between market work, domestic work and leisure over the life-cycle. In order to map the lifecycle, we distinguish between nine key cross-country comparable life stages according to age and family structure such as exiting parental home, union formation, parenthood, and retiring from work. By using appropriate regression techniques (Tobit with selection, Tobit and OLS), we show large discrepancies in the gender division of labour at the different life stages. This gender gap exists in all countries at any stage of the life course, but is usually smaller at the two ends of the age distribution, and larger with parenthood. Beyond social norms, the impact of parenthood on time allocation varies across countries, being smaller in those where work-family balance policies are more effective and traditionally well established.

    The Swedish Model in Turbulent Times: Decline or Renaissance ?2007In: International Labour Review, ISSN 0020-7780, Vol. 145, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1975-91, the "Swedish model" broke down, but - the authors argue - the basic components of the original model of the 1950s are now back in place. Responses to the deep economic crisis of the early 1990s have included the reinstatement of an anti-inflationary macroeconomic policy and the refocusing of active labour market policy on supply side measures. Yet Sweden's recovery from high unemployment and inflation also owes much to the re-coordination of wage bargaining in pursuit of three objectives: industrial peace, limiting the negative employment effects of an uncontrolled wage drift, and "subsidiarity" in adapting the provisions of industry-wide agreements to firms' competitive needs.

    La prise en compte de la vie familiale des salariés par les entreprises:Une comparaison européenne2008In: Recherches et Previsions, ISSN 1149-1590, no 92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    L’organisation des temps de travail des salariés au sein des entreprises peut constituer un véritable outil de gestion de la main-d’oeuvre. En effet, l’organisation temporelle du travail peut répondre aux besoins de flexibilité des entreprises (aménagement des temps de travail selon les besoins organisationnels de l’entreprise, selon les variations de l’activité), ou bien être utilisée comme moyen de fidéliser des salariés, de renforcer leur satisfaction et de stimuler leur implication dans le travail en prenant en compte leurs obligations personnelles. Qu’en est-il réellement ? Quelles sont les pratiques des entreprises en matière de conciliation ? De nombreuses études ont analysé les pratiques individuelles des salariés – notamment lorsqu’ils ont des responsabilités parentales ou familiales – en soulignant la diversité des dispositifs institutionnels en Europe, mais peu de recherches ont été consacrées aux pratiques des entreprises. Les recherches comparatives notamment se sont concentrées sur le rôle respectif de l’État, des familles et du marché dans l’offre de conciliation et ont quelque peu délaissé les entreprises dans l’analyse de l’articulation travail et vie familiale.

    Kvalitetsbristkostnader i tjänsteföretg2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kandidatuppsats i företagsekonomi, Ekonomihögskolan vid Växjö universitet

    Ekonomistyrning EKC 362, VT 2006

    Författare: Mariann Aracsi, Emma Brentel, Åse Ottey

    Handledare: Erik Rosell

    Titel: Kvalitetsbristkostnader i tjänsteföretag

    Bakgrund: De förluster som uppstår på grund av att ett företags produkter och processer inte är fullkomliga kallas för kvalitetsbristkostnader. Teorin behandlar kvalitetsbristkostnader främst ur ett tillverkande företags perspektiv och menar på att ytterst få kvalitetsbristkostnader är kända i tjänsteföretag då de flesta av dessa är dolda.

    Syfte: Syftet med studien är att beskriva arbetet med kvalitetsbristkostnader i tjänsteföretag samt att undersöka skillnader mellan praktik och teori gällande problem med kvalitetsbristkostnader i tjänsteföretag.

    Avgränsningar: Vi har avgränsat oss till transportbranschen.

    Metod: Uppsatsen är en kvalitativ studie som gjorts med hjälp av två fallföretag. Det empiriska materialet har samlats in främst genom samtalsintervjuer. Materialet har sedan utifrån en djupare teoretisk förståelse analyserats.

    Slutsatser: Det är fullt möjligt för tjänsteföretag att särskilja många av sina kvalitetsbrister och därmed är inte tjänsteföretagens kvalitetsbrister dolda i lika stor utsträckning som teorin hävdar. Att hindret med identifiering och mätning har överkommits gör att det fortsatta kvalitetsbristarbetet kan fortlöpa i enlighet med teorin. Vi har funnit att tjänsteföretag däremot inte arbetar med begreppet kvalitetsbristkostnader och inte heller översätter bristerna till monetära termer då det viktiga är att se kvalitet och dess brister ur kundens perspektiv.

    Förslag till fortsatt forskning: Gå in på djupet i ett tjänsteföretag/transportföretag och kartlägga dess processer och utifrån det hitta dolda kvalitetsbristkostnader. Det vore också intressant att genomföra samma undersökning som vi gjort fast i en annan bransch.

    Greater Albania - The Next Crisis in the Balkans?2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Balkans has suffered from quite a few problems as a result of the countless ambitious endeavors for great states of the ethnic groups residing in the Peninsula. The most recent great state idea to have caused troubles in the region is the Serbs’ Great Serbia (i.e. Yugoslvia), which caused a cycle of wars, the latest one being the war in Kosovo in the late 1990s. This thesis attempts to evaluate the rumors of yet another great state in the making – or rather awakening again: the attempt at a Greater Albania, and whether the Albanians in the Balkans are still harboring the idea of any such state. Particular emphasis is placed upon the following questions:

     

    • Where does the idea of a Greater Albania stem from?
    • Is a Greater Albania today still on the Albanians’ agenda as a real political plan?
    • What speaks for and against a Greater Albania? Is the idea even feasible?

     

    The findings indicate that none of the Albanian communities residing in the Balkan region wish for a Greater Albania, nor do their leaders. The Serbs nonetheless maintain that an Albanian threat exists and has done so ever since 1878 when the idea of a Greater Albania first arose. However, according to the results of this study, their claims lack credibility. Everything indicates that today, and with Albania striving for membership in the European Union, the idea of a Greater Albania has been left in the past.

    Kosovo & Montenegro: Why Different Outcomes?2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis

    Title: Kosovo & Montenegro – Why Different Outcomes?

    Author: Mimoza Ardolic

    Supervisor: Lennart Bergfeldt

    Date: 2008-01-15

    The purpose of this study has been to assess why the pursuit for independence turned out to be a matter of such difficulty in the case of Kosovo and not in Montenegro, seeing as they are two apparent similar cases.

    The research questions are:

     How can it be that two analogous situations where two regions (Kosovo and Montenegro), quite similar in several aspects, want independence from the same country (Serbia) result in so different outcomes?

     Why has Kosovo’s attempt to achieve self-government been such a difficulty?

     Why did Montenegro manage to achieve autonomy without (great) difficulties?

    The findings are that despite the similarity between these two cases, they have ample differing characteristics as well. The factors detected are that whilst the Kosovo conflict is characterized by: a troublesome history, no common ground, an existing deep hatred, Russian opposition and the nationalist Milošević; the Montenegrin case is set apart by: an intertwining, rather peaceful history, friendly relations, Russian cordiality and the nationalist Djukanović.

    The interpretation of these elements according to the nationalist theory is as follows: Milošević and Djukanović (and their ideology: nationalism) are the real causes. The other elements are mere means to their ambition for nation building. The difference between these two men and the elements (their means) explains the different outcomes in the two cases.
