Abstract [sv]

År 2018 har svensk folkhögskola verkat i 150 år. Föreningen för Folkbildningsforskningbeslutade därför att ägna Årsboken 2018 helt åt folkhögskolans modernahistoria. Inför folkhögskolans 100-årsjubileum 1968 gav Svenska folkhögskolanslärarförening ut fyra band om Svensk folkhögskola 100 år.Publikationerna som samlades i dessa fyra böcker har alltsedan dess varit referenslitteraturför alla som intresserat sig för utbildningsformen. Mot den bakgrundenvar det viktigt att uppdatera och komplettera våra kunskaper omfolkhögskolornas utveckling de senaste 50 åren 1968 – 2018.Vår ambition har varit att boken så långt som möjligt ska spegla folkhögskolansmångfald. Boken består av 18 bidrag som skrivits av sammantaget 28författare. Olika perspektiv och angreppsätt bryts här mot varandra; forskningsbaseradetexter som syftar till att förstå och förklara folkhögskolans förändringarvarvas med texter som bygger på mångåriga erfarenheteter i folkhögskolepraktiken.Skrivarten varierar också, från basfakta i beskrivande texter, analyserav statistik och forskningsresultat till personligt hållna berättelser och tolkningar.

Författarna ansvarar själva för innehållet i sina texter.Boken bygger på fyra övergripande teman: Folkhögskolans moderna historia1968 – 2018, Frihet och styrning, Pedagogisk tradition och förändring samtPerspektiv på folkhögskolan i samtiden. Boken inleds med en sammanfattningav de första hundra åren (1868 – 1968) av den svenska folkhögskolans historia.

Abstract [sv]

Mimer – Nationellt program för folkbildningsforskning inrättades 1990 vid Linköpings universitet till följd av ett riksdagsbeslut som gav universitetet ett särskilt ansvar för folkbildningsforskning. Mimer har till uppdrag att stödja folkbildningsforskning oavsett inom vilken disciplin den bedrivs eller vid vilket lärosäte. Till uppdraget hör även att uppmuntra utbyten mellan forskare och folkbildare.

Denna skrift har tagits fram med syftet att dokumentera centrala delar av den verksamhet som bedrivits inom Mimer från grundandet fram till 2015. Detta för att synliggöra vad Mimer ägnat sig åt och för att bidra till att gjorda erfarenheter och kunskaper inom organisationen inte faller i glömska.

Skriftens tillkomst bör främst ses som en följd av ett organisationsinternt behov av att bygga ett kollektivt minne. Samtidigt har Mimer under sina 25 år etablerat en verksamhet som intresserat många folkbildare, forskare och politiker. Mimers historia kan ses som en del av historien om folkbildningsforskningsfältets utveckling och konsolidering i Sverige. Skriften kan därför också ge en historisk orienteering av betydelse för alla som har ett intresse för folkbildningsforskning i landet.

Ann-Marie Laginder har varit Mimers föreståndare under närmare 14 år (1999-2012). Hon är docent i pedagogik vid Linköpings universitet och har bedrivit omfattande forskning om folkbildning och dess betydelser ur ett individperspektiv.

Abstract [en]

In this article we will focus on which cultural values that people´s interest in practical-aesthetic learning activities have in the common busy and splinted society. Dance and crafts is neither necessary nor understood as useful knowledge in our time. Transmission and safeguarding of these kind of knowledge and skills often arise as a result of chosen and interest based learning and through participation in organizations and different forms of study activity (formal, un-formal and informal) in a landscape of volunteerism. Practical-aesthetic learning activities are categorized as leisure and hobby due to their existence within the organizations of voluntary sector and offered as part of the study organizations training courses. That does not always be true for the persons that are active and participating in this landscape.

It is people’s interest and choice of practical- aesthetic activity and its role in our time that is in focus in this article. Why do people choose to deepening in and continue learn dance and crafts? What is the cultural political significance of this interest? In contemporary time it seems like a paradox that people choose to deepen an interest that rests on values contradicting the dominant values in society. What does this tell about this phenomenon’s potential as a countercultural value?

The characteristics of the informants’ lifestyle are interpreted as a potential counterculture. This way of living are based on values of time, skill, usefulness and meaning different from those asked for in the new capitalism. Practical-aesthetic learning activities cultural values are complex and political overarching. Learning takes place in the intersection between several political sectors, such as education, cultural, social and environmental issues. In what sense this countercultural phenomenon will be measured societal impact is still an open question.

Abstract [en]

Swedish research on popular education [folkbildning] has since the 1980s emerged into a rather well established field of research. From being a single theme in a few dissertations, the field of research has now developed into an organized community of researchers including a national network and secretariat (Mimer), an annual national research conference, and an active association for researchers and popular educators with interest in research on popular education. The expansion we have witnessed this last decades is not only limited to aspects of infrastructure and the growing number of researchers inhabiting this field, but also in terms of disciplinary and academic affiliation among researchers themselves as well as researched scopes and objectives. This present paper illustrates these transformations through a bibliographic analysis of 162 doctoral theses, produced between the years 1991-2014 and all of them are reported in Mimer’s newsletter. The theses have been coded based on their disciplinary production, academic affiliation, researched topics, and context, including the authors’ gender. The paper highlights in particular three issues/challenges to the field of popular education research: The effects of the emerging economy of publications and citations; the transformations surrounding the disciplinary nature of knowledge production; Gender and the representation of power.

Abstract [sv]

Sverige har ett unikt system för vuxnas deltagande i arrangerat lärande inom ramen för kommunal vuxenutbildning, folkhögskola och studiecirklar. Dessa verksamheter står under ständig förändring i fråga om vem som deltar, hur de finansieras, vilket uppdrag de har och vilka pedagogiska ideal som råder.

Lärandets mångfald ger en aktuell bild av olika sammanhang för vuxnas lärande med speciellt fokus på vuxenutbildning och folkbildning. Läs den också för att lära känna den forskning som idag finns om dessa områden. Ämnen är bland annat bokcirklarnas framväxt, framväxten av muslimska studieförbund och folkhögskolor, skönlitteraturens roll inom utbildning, politiska makthavares bildningsvägar, didaktiska perspektiv på undervisning av vuxna och yrkeslärares identiteter.

Boken vänder sig till studerande vid lärarprogram, studie- och yrkesvägledarprogram, personalvetarprogram, kurser inom pedagogik, samt till yrkesverksamma lärare, folkbildare, studie- och yrkesvägledare, personalvetare och en intresserad allmänhet.

Abstract [en]

Popular education, a distinctive Swedish tradition of lifelong learning, has always concerned itself with the relationship between learning, power, and democracy in society, rather than having a purely individualistic and instrumental approach to learning for employability, which has dominated policy and practice. Through the themes of power and democracy, this book examines popular education's contribution to enhancing people's lives in communities. It reflects on the wider significance and explores the impact on the political culture of the state and the cultural politics of society within and outside Sweden, including the US, Japan, Canada, and Tanzania. As a comprehensive and unique collection, the book balances historical reflection, contemporary issues, and the international impact of popular education, combining theoretical analysis and empirical data.Show more Show less

Abstract [en]

This book is an initiative of Mimer – The Swedish Network for Research on Popular Education. Mimer, whose secretariat is hosted by Linköping University, is an organisation governed by an interdisciplinary board consisting of leading researchers and popular educators, with the main aim of promoting research on popular education (www.liu.se/mimer). Popular education has become a significant field for educational activities in Sweden – as is portrayed and scrutinised in several of the contributions in this book. Over the years, research related to popular education has grown to become a dynamic field. Studies published in this field of research have, with a few excellent exceptions, been written in Swedish, and thus unfortunately been known only at a national or Nordic level. However, the subjects dealt with in this research are to a great extent universal; they most often deal with the complex struggles of social movements or the many ways in which ordinary people arrange and take part in education on their own premises. In recent years Mimer has decided to strengthen the efforts to break the language barrier which isolates the research debates on these matters from their international counterparts. This is based on the conviction that doing so will benefit not only the Swedish research community, but also make a contribution to scholars and popular educators interested in the Scandinavian tradition of popular education.

We have repeatedly been asked by non-Swedish speaking colleagues and popular education enthusiasts to recommend a comprehensive book in English about Swedish popular education. Frustratingly, we have not been able to mention any research-based up to date examples. This was the starting point for this anthology, which was initiated by Ann-Marie Laginder, Associate Professor and Director of Mimer, in cooperation with Associate Professor Henrik Nordvall. The title of the book – Popular Education, Power and Democracy – emphasises the universal theme which we think is the most urgent one when it comes to communicating insights from research on the rich tradition of Swedish and Scandinavian popular education. Well-known Swedish researchers within the network and prominent international researchers were invited to contribute with different perspectives on this theme.

We soon found out that we needed a coeditor outside Sweden. We were truly pleased when Jim Crowther, Senior Lecturer at Edinburgh University, coordinator of the international Popular Education Network (PEN) accepted the invitation to join us on the editorial group. His critical and constructive contributions to the quality of individual chapters have been crucial. His thorough and extensive experience in editing international anthologies and journals has been of invaluable assistance in the production of the book. Regarding editorial matters we want to thank Pat Brechin, who has done an excellent job in improving the English language in each chapter. We are also grateful for Eleonor Bredlöw’s good work in the final checking of references in each chapter.

We want to extend a warm thank you to all the researchers who have contributed to the book. Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into writing these chapters and thus making this book what it is. This unique collection of articles provides a coherent approach to assessing the role of popular education in and beyond Swedish borders and we hope the book will be of interest to academics, students, practitioners and popular education activists worldwide.
