Identity in living rooms : The living room as a part of ones identity (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här studien undersöker vad det finns för samband mellan akademikers identitet i stockholmsområdet och deras vardagsrum. Fyra intervjuer har gjorts hemma hos akademiker för att undersöka hur deras förhållande till vardagsrummet speglar synen på den egna identiteten. Fokus i uppsatsen ligger på att analysera hur vardagsrummen hjälper informanterna att visa upp sin identitet och hur de själva pratar om rummet. I uppsatsen tar jag också upp informanternas förhållande till tv och hur det hänger samman med deras identitet. Slutsatsen i min uppsats är i korthet att mina informanter verkar ha en uppfattning om vad deras egen identitet innebär och att försöker inreda sina vardagsrum så att de ska spegla denna bild både för andra och sig själva. Det kan dock ibland råda dissonans mellan hur informanten talar om rummet och hur rummet verkar användas.

Abstract [en]

This study examines what the connection is between academics identity in the Stockholm area and their living rooms. Four interviews were conducted at the home of scholars to examine how their relationship to the living room reflects their perception of one's identity. The focus of this paper is to analyze how the living rooms help informants to show off their identity and how they talk about the rooms. In the essay, I also examine the informants' relationship to television and how it relates to their identity. The conclusion of my essay is briefly that my informants appear to have an idea of what their own identity means and that they are trying to decorate their living room, so that they reflect that image both to others and themselves. However, it can sometimes be a dissonance between the way the informant are talking about the room and how the rooms are being used.
