    Alternating between online and offline: tags and frame switches as interactional resources2007Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present data are based on an ethnographic study of computer use in everyday interactions in a seventh grade class (of 13-14 year-olds). The data were analysed in terms of activity frames and participation frameworks (Goffman 1981), exploring how students deployed online and offline activity frames in their identity performance. It is shown how MSN (online) identities are invoked in subsequent and intermittent face-to-face interaction; a dialogue can start on MSN and continue in faceto-face interaction, and vice versa. This means that frame switches are important features of the students’ identity work. Similarly, the students employed nicknames or tags, that is, textual-visual displays of ‘speaker’ identities, located in the boundary zone between online and offline activities. In terms of participation frameworks, it is also documented ways in which students engaged in crossplay (Goffman 1981), where a ratified participant communicated with a non-ratified participant. Yet, one problem in analysing participation frameworks and particularly byplay and sideplay (Goffman 1981) is that these concepts require that the analyst can identify one dominant activity. This was not possible in the present data. Instead, the data are primarily analysed in terms of borderwork, that here entails frame switchings, crossplay and a strategic use of tags.

    Around the Screen: Computer activities in children’s everyday lives2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present ethnography documents computer activities in everyday life. The data consist of video recordings, interviews and field notes, documenting (i) 16 students in a seventh grade class in a computer room and other school settings and (ii) 22 children, interacting with siblings, friends and parents in home settings. The thesis is inspired by discourse analytical as well as ethnographic approaches, including notions from Goffman (1974, 1981), e.g. those of activity frame and participation framework, which are applied and discussed.

    The thesis consists of four empirical studies. The first study focuses on students’ illegitimate use, from the school’s point of view, of online chatting in a classroom situation. It is shown that the distinction offline/online is not a static one, rather it is made relevant as part of switches between activity frames, indicating the problems of applying Goffman’s (1981) notions of sideplay, byplay and crossplay to analyses of interactions in which several activity frames are present, rather than one main activity. Moreover, it is shown that online identities, in terms of what is here called tags, that is, visual-textual nicknames, are related to offline phenomena, including local identities as well as contemporary aesthetics. The second study focuses on placement of game consoles as part of family life politics. It is shown that game consoles were mainly located in communal places in the homes. The distinction private/communal was also actualized in the participants’ negotiations about access to game consoles as well as negotiations about what to play, when, and for how long. It is shown that two strategies were used, inclusion and exclusion, for appropriating communal places for computer game activities. The third study focuses on a digital divide in terms of a generational divide with respect to ascribed computer competence, documenting how the children and adults positioned each other as people ‘in the know’ (the children) versus people in apprentice-like positions (the adults). It is shown that this generation gap was deployed as a resource in social interaction by both the children and the adults. The forth study focuses on gaming in family life, showing that gaming was recurrently marked by response cries (Goffman, 1981) and other forms of blurted talk. These forms of communication worked as parts of the architecture of intersubjectivity in gaming (cf. Heritage, 1984), indexing the distinction virtual/‘real’. It is shown how response cries, sound making, singing along and animated talk extended the virtual in that elements of the game became parts of the children’s social interaction around the screen, forming something of an action aesthetic, a type of performative action for securing and displaying joint involvement and collaboration. As a whole, the present studies show how the distinctions master/apprentice, public/private, virtual/real and subject/object are indexicalized and negotiated in computer activities.

The data were analysed in terms of activity frames and participation frameworks (Goffman 1981), exploring how students deployed online and offline activity frames in their identity performance.

In terms of participation frameworks, it is also documented ways in which students engaged in crossplay (Goffman 1981), where a ratified participant communicated with a non-ratified participant. Yet, one problem in analysing participation frameworks and particularly byplay and sideplay (Goffman 1981) is that these concepts require that the analyst can identify one dominant activity. This was not possible in the present data. Instead, the data are primarily analysed in terms of borderwork, that here entails frame switchings, crossplay and a strategic use of tags.

    Abstract [en]

    This article examines territorial negotiations concerning gaming, drawing on video recordings of gaming practices in middle-class families. It explores how private vs public gaming space was co-construed by children and parents in front of the screen as well as through conversations about games. Game equipment was generally located in public places in the homes, which can be understood in terms of parents’ surveillance of their children, on the one hand, and actual parental involvement, on the other. Gaming space emerged in the interplay between game location, technology and practices, which blurred any fixed boundaries between public and private, place and space, as well as traditional age hierarchies.

    Abstract [en]

    In this ethnographic study of family life, intergenerational video and computer game activities were videotaped and analysed. Both children and adults invoked the notion of a digital divide, i.e. a generation gap between those who master and do not master digital technology. It is argued that the digital divide was exploited by the children to control the game activities. Conversely, parents and grandparents positioned themselves as less knowledgeable, drawing on a displayed divide as a rhetorical resource for gaining access to playtime with the children. In these intergenerational encounters, the digital divide was thus an interactional resource rather than a problem.

    Abstract [en]

    The present study focuses on the ways in which response cries (Goffman, 1981) are deployed as interactional resources in computer gaming in everyday life. It draws on a large-scale data set of video recordings of the everyday lives of middleclass families. The recordings of gaming between children and between children and parents show that response cries were not arbitrarily located within different phases of gaming (planning, gaming or commenting on gaming). Response cries were primarily used as interactional resources for securing and sustaining joint attention (cf. Goodwin, 1996) during the gaming as such, that is, during periods when the gaming activity was characterized by a relatively high tempo. In gaming between children, response cries co-occurred with their animations of game characters and with sound making, singing along, and code switching in ways that formed something of an action aesthetic, a type of aesthetic that was most clearly seen in gaming between game equals (here: between children). In contrast, response cries were rare during the planning phases and during phases in which the participants primarily engaged in setting up or adjusting the game.

    Mellanboendeformer för äldre: av intresse såväl för de äldre som för bostadsföretagen2009In: Åldrande, åldersordning, ålderism / [ed] Håkan Jönson, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press , 2009, 1, p. 138-156Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här texten syftar till att diskutera det ökande intresset för äldres boendesituation utifrån kommunernas, bostadsföretagens samt de äldre individernas perspektiv. Detta görs genom att studera de förändringar som har ägt rum på bostadsmarknaden då nya former av boenden för äldre nu finns på marknaden. Dessa boenden riktar sig till aktiva äldre som närmar sig eller redan har uppnått pensionsåldern och som inte har hemmaboende barn. De förändringar som sker i den här fasen av livet kan antas påverka boendesituationen även om det är individer och hushåll som inte är beroende av insatser i form av vård och omsorg som endast kan lösas inom det särskilda boendet. Fokus här är på de förändringar som ägt rum på den ordinära bostadsmarknaden och inom bostadsföretagen men också på sociala frågor som kan ha med de äldres bostadssituation att göra.

    Studien utgår ifrån några forskningsfrågor kring tidpunkten för det ökade intresset för äldres boendesituation, de olika typer av boenden som diskuteras liksom de kvaliteter i boendet som poängteras i samband med marknadsföringen av seniorboenden.

    Texten är en sammanfattning dels av litteratur som berör äldre som aktörer på bostadsmarknaden, dels av möten med representanter för bostadsföretag och tjänstemän inom några olika kommuner kring de behov som finns och olika exempel på hur man försöker möta dessa behov. Ett antal studiebesök har också genomförts som visar på hur den här typen av boenden fungerar i praktiken och texten bygger också på preliminära resultat ifrån ett par pågående studier om äldres boendepreferenser i en medelstor svensk stad. Resultaten som presenteras är en sammanfattning av det som framkommit ur dessa olika källor.

    Det finns inga regler för vad som måste ingå för att ett boende ska räknas som en mellanboendeform, t.ex. seniorboende, även om en del riktlinjer och rekommendationer har presenterats (Wel Hops 2007). Oftast riktar sig boendet till individer som är 55 år eller äldre och som inte har några hemmavarande barn. Tillgängligheten är hög och det finns oftast gemensamhetsutrymmen och lokaler för hobbyverksamheter av olika slag. Mellanbo-endeformerna har en rad olika namn såsom seniorboende, plusboende, 55+, temaboende, boende för den tredje åldern, gemensamhetsboende etc. Här kommer termen seniorboende för enkelhetens skull att användas.

    Housing plans of the oldest old – Ageing in semi-rural areas2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Many municipalities in rural areas have decreasing population rates. Generally the young move out, increasing the share of older people and influencing the way life is led in rural areas. In this paper focus is on the housing situation and housing plans of the oldest individuals in three small, semi-rural municipalities in southern Sweden. In order to increase our understanding of the living conditions of an ageing rural population, a postal survey was conducted. In one part of the survey the respondents answered questions about their current housing situation and their housing plans for the future. The research questions analysed for this study regarded stated reasons for housing decisions and plans. 1386 surveys were sent out, i.e., to all inhabitants aged 80 years and older residing in the ordinary housing market, in the three municipalities, 817 surveys were returned providing a response rate at 60%. The aim was to determine the main reasons for remaining put in a current housing situation or reasons for why relocation could be a future option. Results show that place attachment is strong, 90% of the respondents have lived in the municipality for more than 20 years and 60% have lived in the current dwelling for more than 20 years. Ageing in place is the dominating plan although 23% answered that they do not know what will happen in future. Those that plan to move, want to move to housing that needs less maintenance than the current dwelling and to a more central location.

    Rum för åldrande. Essäer om äldres boende: Essäer skrivna i forskarutbildningskursen Äldres boende, NISAL 20092010Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Höstterminen 2009 genomförde vi en forskarutbildningskurs om äldres boende. Kursens huvudsyfte var att kritiskt behandla den mycket varierande forskning om hem, boende, grannskap och åldrandets villkor som pågår. Kursens nav var diskutera och pröva teorier och metoder som innebär att sociala och kulturella förhållande studeras i relation till den fysiska miljöns utformning.

    Uppgiften att studera äldres boende och boendet under åldrandet är närmast outtömlig. Så mycket av livet utspelas och avgörs av var och hur man bor. Bostaden är ett rum för livet som för de flesta ökar i betydelse när man blir gammal. Man tillbringar mer tid i bostaden. Bostadens utformning kan underlätta eller försvåra vardagslivet. Att bli gammal betyder också att förändra sitt förhållningssätt till hemmet och det grannskap där hemmet finns.

    Det säger sig självt att det finns mycket stora variationer mellan olika äldre människors boende – beroende på ålder, livslopp och boendekarriär, sociala förhållanden, ekonomiska resurser, intressen och behov av vardaglig hjälp och stöd. Variationen är lika stor bland de äldre som i andra åldersgrupper, kanske till och med större eftersom det utöver de vanliga bostadsformerna också finns alternativ som är särskilt avsedda för äldre - seniorlägenheter, livsstilsboenden, trygghetsboenden och särskilda boenden.

    Sedan ett femtontal år har det vuxit fram en bostadsmarknad som speciellt vänder sig till äldre eller personer som vill utforma sitt boende så att de passar det liv de vill leva. Man kan se detta som ett sätt för bostadsmarknadens aktörer att möta att antalet äldre blir fler och att detta förhållande kommer att påverka deras verksamhet i en rad avseenden. Forskning om hur de nya boendena utvecklas över tid är betydelsefull. Kommer boende i seniorhus att göra åldrandet mer meningsfullt och bidra till att de som bor där kan utveckla det civila samhället? Eller kommer seniorhusen att förstärka klyftorna mellan olika äldre och avskilja vissa från det omgivande samhället?

    Kursen hade tre teman: Stadsdelen och orten som rum för det lokala livet, det särskilda boendet som rum för hemliv, vård och omsorg samt generation, boende och flyttmönster. Undervisningen och arbetet i kursen byggdes upp av flera delar. En del bestod av föreläsningar och seminarier som syftade till att ge en översikt av den teoretiska litteraturen som behandlar rumsliga fenomen. En del av kursen behandlade hur boendet för äldre har utvecklats och kan komma att utvecklas i förhållande till bostads- och äldrepolitik. En tredje del syftade till att knyta det teoretiska innehållet till praktiken. Tre fältbesök genomfördes i olika bostadsmiljöer för äldre: ett hyreshusområde i Norrköping, ett nytt seniorbonde och ett nyöppnat särskilt boende. En del av kursens bestod av deltagarnas egna arbeten. Kanske var denna del den viktigaste. Var och en skrev en essä om en fråga som engagerade särskilt. I de flesta fall handlade det om att knyta sitt eget pågående avhandlingsarbete eller sin yrkespraktik till en specifik frågeställning inom kursens ram.

    Essäerna kom att handla om en rad olika aspekter av äldres boende. Några tog upp analytiska och teorigenererade frågor som kunde kopplas till bl.a. fältbesöken, några utnyttjade empiri som man samlat i andra sammanhang, några diskuterade äldres boende och omsorg i specifika geografiska eller sociala kontexter. Essäerna behandlar frågor av stor relevans, i flera fall på ett oväntat och idérikt sätt. Därför har vi samlat några av kursens essäer i denna kursantologi.

    Lärare på kursen var Marianne Abramsson, Jan-Erik Hagberg, Mirjaliisa Lukkarinen Kvist och Catharina Nord, alla från NISAL samt Chris Phillipson från Keele University.

    Äldres boende - forskningsperspektiv i Norden2012Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna antologi diskuteras äldres boendeförhållanden utifrån ett samhälls- och individperspektiv. Äldres boende inkluderar såväl kvarboende i vanliga bostäder som boende i bostäder särskilt avsedda för äldre.

    I boken behandlas fysiska och sociala aspekter på boendet, äldres bostadsmarknad och boendepreferenser. De olika kapitlen exemplifierar olika sätt att studera äldre och deras boendesituation och visar på den variation av områden inom vilka forskning om äldres boende bedrivs. Tillsammans ger de en bred bild av äldres boendesituation och lyfter fram de frågor som särskilt berör äldre, alltifrån de friska och mer rörliga äldre med stora valmöjligheter till de multisjuka äldre som lever längre med sina sjukdomar. Denna heterogenitet ställer stora krav på äldres bostäder och boendemiljöer.Antologin är avsedd att utgöra ett underlag för kurser om äldres boende ur ett samhällsvetenskapligt perspektiv. Den vänder sig också till aktörer i kommunal produktion av bostäder och omsorg samt andra med intresse för  äldres bostadsfrågor.

    Alla författare är medlemmar i Nordiska nätverket för forskning om äldres boende.

    Internetisation Management as a Facilitator for Managing Innovation in High Technology Smaller Firms2013In: Global Business Review, ISSN 0972-1509, E-ISSN 0973-0664, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 121-136Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Managing innovation in smaller firms imposes challenges of specific nature. Such challenges include: scarcity of resources for R&D and innovation activities, complexity of scientific fields, coordinating innovation activities with the operational functions of the firm and availability of access to up-to-date scientific excellence. A question of importance should be raised as to how one can use the recent development in information and communication technologies (ITCs) to meet these challenges and to facilitate innovation activities in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), specially the high- technology smaller firms (HTSFs), as these use innovation as their major competitive edge. In this conceptual paper we proposed using a newly introduced management paradigm, namely “internetisation management” to achieve the said. In the article we discussed the different challenges of innovation in HTSFs and how these challenges can be meet when adapting the internetisation management paradigm. The work shed the light on the need for a coupling between management and innovation studies in relation to SMEs while taking in consideration the e-globalized nature of the modern economy. It addresses in a more particular way HTSFs need for that coupling.

    Mobbning: Elevers syn på mobbning2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här arbetet handlar om ett problem som angår alla, vuxna och barn, som befinner sig inom skolans värld, nämligen mobbning. I min uppsats har jag valt att studera mobbning mellan barn och hur skolpersonal lättare ska kunna upptäcka mobbning i skolan. I arbetets litteraturgenomgång definieras vad mobbning är och ges exempel på var och när mobbning är vanligast i skolan och olika åtgärder man som lärare kan vidta mot mobbning. Utifrån litteraturstudien har jag formulerat en enkätundersökning riktad till elever i år 8 och år 9 som jag utförde på en grundskola. Resultatet visar exempelvis att mobbningen och bråk förekommer i störst utsträckning på raster och i korridorerna. Detta stämmer väl överens med tidigare forskning om mobbning som jag använt mig av.

    Abstract [en]

    ‘To create the most resource-efficient region in the world’. This is the vision of Tekniska verken, the municipalityowned infrastructural company in Linköping, Sweden. It reflects the city’ s long-standing ambitions to be a ‘forerunner in climate and environmental initiatives’ and to support ‘business-driven’ environmental development, actively stimulating the development of a green economic sector. Linköping and the surrounding county of Östergötland are here used for discussing the development of the green economy in cities and regions.

    Bilingual and Monolingual Children's Narration: Discourse Strategies and Narrative Styles1997Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates twenty bilingual and twenty monolingual 6-year-old preschool children's discourse strategies and narrative styles. It is theoretically based on an interdiciplinary framework combining theories of narration with discourse theories. Methodologically, the study draws on micro-analyses of children's spontaneous sharing time narrations, on the one hand, and elicited retellings of a fable, on the other. A new method was developed for analysing Labovian story points from a collaborative perspective: differentiating between child contributions, teacher contributions, and joint contributions. Moreover, all children were interviewed about their literary repertoires and about narrative practices at home. It was found that children's vocabulary was closely linked to their literary repertoires and cultural habits. By calculating the repair:error ratio, the present study shows that there is a linear development in children's repair work, instead of an inverted U-curve as previously suggested. Language repairs were rare in both groups. The children primarily focused on meaning, not on linguistic form. However, there were more language errors in the bilingual group. Moreover, the bilingual group had a more restricted vocabulary. Yet, the findings reveal that narrative coherence was comparable in the monolingual and bilingual groups. In an analysis of participation during sharing time sessions, it was found that peer comments and child initiatives were more frequent in the monolingual group, and in specific preschool settings. Collaboration was investigated both in terms of teacher support, co-narration, and in  terms of indirect ways of collaborating, like the employment of communication strategies and self-repairs. It was found that bilingual children received  more collaborative support and employed more communication strategies than their monolingual peers.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det handlar om hur människor i olika sammanhang samspelar och skapar mening. Gemensamt för bokens skribenter är att de är eller har varit doktorander för professor Karin Aronsson vid Institutionen Barn och tema Kommunikation, vid Linköpings universitet. Sedan mitten av 1980-talet har institutionen erbjudit en dynamisk forskningsmiljö för personer med intresse för samtal, kulturella uttryck och socialt liv i och utanför institutionella sammanhang. Boken vänder sig till studenter, lärare, forskare samt praktiker med intresse för samtal, kulturella utryck och andra vardagliga fenomen som t.ex. tolkade samtal, flerspråkighet, visuell kultur, kamratrelationer, läsning, bildanvändning, grupparbete, etc. Kapitlen i boken kan med fördel användas såväl inom utbildning, arbetsliv som på fritiden för att fördjupa förståelsen av igenkännbara vardagliga fenomen och öka kunskapen om dessa fenomens komplexitet och mångfacetterade betydelser.

    Det här kapitlet kommer att handla om vårt förhållande till livets förgänglighet och de populära råd och uppmaningar som förmedlas i vår nutid om hur vi ska "leva rätt nu så vi kan leva gott sedan". De frågor jag ställer mig är hur vårt förhållningssätt till tid och livets förgänglighet får konsekvenser för hur vi lever våra liv, samt hur man kan tolka behovet av att kontrollera tiden. Till grund för texten ligger det material som använts i mitt avhandlingsarbete samt dagsaktuella artiklar i tryckt press.

    Om vägen till självförsörjning: En intervjustudie om eget företagande och integration2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With a starting point in a project for reinforcing small scale business among immigrants in Sweden, carried out within Swedish for immigrants (sfi), the aim for this thesis is to examine the project from the view and experiences of the participants. Interviews with participants in the project have been inspired by the teoretical and methodological views of Grounded Theory.

    The interviews show that some participants want to start their own business, but almost as many don’t have that dream. The former group all have experience of being self-employed. They are aware of the difficulties but are nevertheless determined to proceed their dream. The latter group have no former experience and no interest in starting a business. A result of this thesis is that the swedish language as well as interaction with other people are seen as important parts of the integration process, but also for the feeling of content.

    Above All Else, Do Not Snitch: Constructing Criminal Identities and Negotiating Masculinities in Agression Replacement Training2008Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present article, the issue of snitching is analysed as part of a convict code, drawn upon by young men detained for assessment at a youth detention home and participating in Aggression Replacement Training (ART). ART is viewed in light of other research on peer interventions. The analysis shows how sticking to the convict code facilitates positioning oneself as knowledgeable within a field of criminality. Perhaps more important, however, is how drawing on the code regulates the relationship to other men and polices one's own behaviour, as well as that of others. Both the trainers and the young men can be seen to use different discourses of masculinity as interactional resources.

    Constructing the Other: Ethnic and Racist Categorizations in Talk on Violence2008Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is increasingly becoming multiethnic, resulting in a complex ethnic landscape. The present article documents how two young men in Sweden use ethnic and racist categories in talk about violence, from two distinct but mirroring positions: one explicitly non-Swedish and one a former neo-Nazi. Both young men describe being the target of violence due to being identified as the Other, and both use ethnic and racist categorizations to describe their fighting opponents. It is also argued here that both men are problematizing and deconstructing present and previous identities.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article, a young man's narratives of violence are analysed, and a culturally shared storyline is identified as the basis of these narratives. It is argued that the stories are organized so as to construct a preferred self-presentation. One strategy to achieve this is to establish boundaries for what type of violence to use, whom to fight, where and for what reasons. I also argue that the narratives are structured to avoid being categorized as either victim or perpetrator, although both categories are drawn upon. Issues of masculinity are made relevant through categorization of the characters in the narrative, and positions are made available. Different masculine categories such as the hero/villain/non-man become relevant in the analysis. Different gendered positions are used in negotiating a masculine identity around narratives of and through telling about violence.

    Talking Violence, Constructing Identity: Young Men in Institutional Care2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the study is to investigate how young men constructing identities in talk about their own use of violence. The study is based on a fieldwork at a youth detention home in Sweden. The data consists of individual interviews and video recordings of the treatment programme Aggression Replacement Training (ART). Detailed analyses have been made of conversations between the young men, between the young men and the trainers, and of the narratives generated in the individual interviews. The study has a social constructionist approach to identity, which is seen as constructed in a joint achievement in social interaction. An important analytical perspective in the study is how social categories and subcategories are constructed. The study has a particular focus on gender, primarily masculinity, but age and ethnicity are also being emphasised.

    The analysis draws on four empirical studies. It is shown how the young men construct a preferred self-presentation when talking about violent events. The narratives on violence are either based on experiences or talked about as a hypothetical use of violence. Violence based on personal experience is problematized and legitimized in terms of self-defence, defending friends, restraint and justified violence. Narratives of violence are shown to be interactional resources available to the young men. When talking about violence, the young men can be seen to regulate social relations, and to position themselves in relation to particular discourses of masculinity. The specific understanding of what it entails to be a man enables the use of violence with respect to social categorizations such as age, ethnicity or criminal identity. It is also argued that the treatment programme ART may, at times, facilitate maintaining a criminal identity.

    Abstract [en]

    Much of the research, on young men’s violence towards girls is problematised, and linked to sexist attitudes held by young men towards girls. In this article I intend to show that, in discussing violence, violence towards girls is not generally accepted among the young men with a documented history of violence. In a study of violent young men in residential care, undergoing Aggression Replacement Training (ART) the issue becomes pertinent in an ART-discussion. One of the young men discloses that he has hit a girl once. In different accounts he elaborates the motives for doing this, and works to justify his actions. He gives two accounts of the episode in the ART-lesson; in an interview afterwards he produces yet another version. In this article I examine the variations he gives of what happened, how he is striving to position himself as morally justifiable and produce a successful masculine position for himself.

    Barns perspektiv på jämställdhet i skolan: En kunskapsöversikt2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten är en kunskapsöversikt över forskningen om barns perspektiv på jämställdhet i skolan. Den visar att det finns frågor som inte behandlas av forskningen om jämställdhet i skolan. Några exempel på frågorna är barns och ungas upplevelser av hur jämställd skolan är, vilka möjligheter till delaktighet de ges i skolan och hur de anser att skolan är och bör vara organiserad. Kunskapsöversikten har tagits fram av fil dr. Kjerstin Andersson, fil. dr. Ann Nehlin, doktorand Mehek Muftee och doktorand Zulmir Becevic, samtliga verksamma vid Tema barn, Linköpings universitet. Denna rapport ingår som nummer åtta i en serie av forskarrapporter från DEJA.

    Detta kapitel har tre ingångar. Den första tar upp gerontologins kategoriseringar av äldre. Den andra ingången tar upp folkhälsofrågor. Den tredje ingången tar upp existentiella frågor om åldrande och döende. Kapitlet diskuterar den till synes evighetslånga frågan om äldrebilden och vilken verklighet som kan riskera att hamna i skymundan när en annan lyfts fram. I dagsläget förefaller situationen för de mest skröpliga ha hamnat i skuggan av rapporterade hälsoförbättringar bland äldre.

    Ålderism2008 (ed. 1:1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ålderism handlar om ålder som grund för fördomar och diskriminering, med betoning på situationen för äldre. Ålderism är kanske den mest accepterade formen av fördom som existerar i dag, och den form av diskriminering som det tas lättast på. Negativa uttalanden och åsikter är accepterade på ett helt annat sätt om de är riktade mot äldre än om de vore riktade mot andra grupper. Denna bok tecknar en bakgrund till de fördomsfulla attityder mot äldre, ålderdom och åldrandet samt de stereotyper och den diskriminering av äldre som förekommer i dag. Åldrandet och ålderdomen är frågor som ständigt diskuteras. Boken riktar sig främst till högskolestuderande inom samhälls- och beteendevetenskap, socialt arbete, social omsorg och vård, liksom till

    Vem bestämmer i äldreomsorgen?: en studie om hur sex enhetschefer resonerar om informella ledare2008Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Enhetschefens arbete balanserar mellan önskemål och krav från personal, brukare, anhöriga, tjänstemän och politiker. Informella ledare kan då vara ett hot eller en möjlighet.Uppsatsens syfte är att bidra med förståelse för hur enhetschefer inom äldreomsorgen resonerar kring informella ledare. Det handlar om de möjligheter och svårigheter samt de strategier cheferna resonerar om och använder i sitt arbete.Den teoretiska referensramen utgörs av symbolisk interaktionism och verksamhetsnära- och situationsanpassat ledarskap. Utifrån en kvalitativ ansats har halvstrukturerade intervjuer genomförts med sex enhetschefer i två kommuner i Östergötland.Resultatet visar att cheferna resonerar kring både möjligheter och svårigheter avseende informella ledare i verksamheten. Möjligheterna kan bestå av att informella ledare ofta är insatta och engagerade i verksamheten. Cheferna använder också informella ledare för att övertyga övriga i personalgruppen om sin linje vid neddragningar eller förändringsarbete. Möjligheterna kan vändas till svårigheter då de informella ledarna genom sitt engagemang på ett negativt sätt drar med sig övriga i personalgruppen. De kan också medverka till skapandet av en negativ kultur där personalen inte vågar uttrycka sig fritt. Sammantaget handlar chefernas strategier om tydlighet, kommunikation, delaktighet och utbildning.

    "Så länge jag är glad, liksom": En kvalitativ studie om människors upplevelser av den egna sexualiteten2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ”Så länge jag är glad, liksom” är en kvalitativ studie av människors sätt att se på sin egen – och i viss mån även andras – sexualitet. Genom intervjuer med människor med olika sexuell läggning, lyfter den fram de egna erfarenheterna av att vara hetero-, homo- eller bisexuell i Sverige idag. Intervjuerna analyseras och tolkas med hjälp av kvalitativ innehållsanalys och belyser på så sätt ett antal centrala kategorier. Dessa fokuserar på frågor kring sexualitetens orsaker och vad som anses naturligt samt sexualitet som en del av identiteten.

    En helt vanlig kille?: En diskursteoretisk analys av representation av maskulinitet i böcker om manlig identitet riktade mot unga killar2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines how masculinity and male identity are portrayed in five different self-help books about male identity aimed at young men.

    Discourse theory was the method used to examine which different masculinities were present in the books, and to uncover the relations between these masculinities. Furthermore, the concepts of change presented in the books and the authors' way of conveying relations of power and submission between genders have also been subject to analysis.

    In nearly all of the books there is some kind of conflict present between a traditional masculinity, commonly described as macho, and a more modern masculinity. Exactly what is at stake and which side holds the dominant position differs greatly between the books. Perhaps the most obvious common ground between the books is that the male sexuality is described as very strong and more or less determinatory for the male identity in all of the books.

    The Radical Right-Wing Populist Party and the Role of Discourse: Case study: the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ)2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the phenomenon of the Radical Right-Wing Populist Party in Western democracies. Why the RRP party has been chosen as the main actor of this study is its anti-democratic practice of producing xenophobia, racism and racial discrimination. Therefore the questions of interest arose: first which opportunity structures enabled the emergence of RRP parties, and second what was the role of their discourse, as a major tool of the RRP parties, especially in producing racism and discrimination in institutional terms. Moreover the study relies on different discourse analytical approaches to racism, as theory and as a method; as well as on other theoretical approaches which explain the rise of RRP parties and their impact.Different opportunity structures led to their rise and success, which shows that the national context needs to be taken into account. Regarding the discourse, the study shows that due to its hegemonic role to shape and influence the discursive and non-discursive practices, the accomplishment of the goals of the RRP parties was guaranteed. However the study also shows that their discourse should be placed within the national context. Therefore deriving a common formula for the role of their anti-immigrant discourse in making an impact is not possible.The case study of the Austrian Freedom Party FPÖ shows that the use of their anti-immigrant discourse contributed to their electoral success, was very well accepted in the party-system and led to a change of the wider national political discursive practice. In addition, it made an impact on the non-discursive practice, which resulted in adoption of anti-immigrant policies, and furthermore strengthened institutional discrimination.

    Barns ”växa vilt” och vuxnas vilja att forma: Formell och informell socialisation i en muslimsk skola2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the thesis is to examine how children as social beings and actors form themselves within the framework of a school institution that adults have set up in order to shape them in deliberate ways through nurturing education. The study is based on long-term fieldwork in a Muslim faith school in Sweden.

    Muslim schools have aroused a great deal of debate in Swedish society.

    Opponents have argued that Muslim schools lead to segregation and social exclusion, that these schools risk not promoting the fundamental values of society and that children in these schools are met by religious propaganda. Advocates of these schools have maintained that in public schools the Muslim identity is eroded by ignorance, lack of understanding and racism. Muslim schools instead offer children knowledge of their culture and religion in a way that enhances their identity and makes them secure and whole human beings who can be integrated into society. The debate reflects that school institutions function as loci for contested forms of socialisation in society; national, ethnic, religious, or the struggle of other groups for cultural production and social reproduction in which they are united in the role and importance attached to the school institution in the shaping of young people. In the debate children appear as passive receivers and products of adults’ upbringing and education, which represents both threat and opportunity.

    The debate around Muslim schools reflects adult-centred ideas of socialisation, where the adults’ upbringing and education is placed at the centre of the process in which children are formed into social persons. What emerged from this study is that children are social actors who shape themselves and that this shaping is more of an informal social process than a formal education process. The study raises the profile of how the school constitutes an environment in which children are in the majority and adults in the minority; a social environment in which children have significantly more social contact and a greater number of social relations with each other than with adults. The school as a child-centred social environment is reflected in the fact that it is principally children who shape each other rather than adults shaping children.

    The Perspectives of African Immigrants in Sweden on Intercountry Child Adoption2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The views of minority groups who speak on behalf of adopted children in Western countries like Sweden have relevance with regards to enriching the international adoption discourse; and to inform adoption policies in both sending and receiving countries. This study aimed at seeking the views of African immigrants in Sweden on intercountry adoption with the objective of bringing out the meanings they create on the major themes involved to enrich the international adoption debate and to inform policy formation. In all, twenty (20) participants who were grouped into Six (6) focus groups participated. There were mixed opinions on various themes involved. Some of their perspectives were consistent with previous political discourses on adoptions and others were not. These were discussed in the analysis accordingly. Contrary to international conventions, participants showed much relevance to intercountry adoption as against incountry adoption. However, there were predominant views in support of child adoption that is well regulated.

    Activity contracts and directives in everyday family politics2011In: Discourse & Society, ISSN 0957-9265, E-ISSN 1460-3624, Vol. 22, no 2, p. 1-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In theorizing on family life, childrens agency is a feature of a modern type of family, marked by free choice and inter-generational negotiations rather than parental authority. A video ethnography of Swedish everyday family life documents directive sequences and inter-generational negotiations, including what is here called activity contracts: agreements that form a type of inter-generational account work around target activities (e.g. cleaning ones room). Within local family politics, contracts and revised contracts emerge as parts of such account work. The analyses focus on how contracts emerge within successive downgradings and upgradings of parental directives. Activity contracts regulate mutual rights and obligations, invoking family rule statements and local moral order, drawing on an array of verbal and nonverbal resources, ranging from parents mitigated requests and childrens time bargaining to nonverbal escape strategies and gentle shepherding.

    Climate change in Swedish farm magazines2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The profitability of agricultural production depends on weather conditions and decisions on the basis of expected weather conditions. As climate change is changing the conditions for farmers, information about climate change to individual farmers is important for the productivity in the agricultural sector. An analysis of the two largest Swedish agricultural magazines over the period 2000-2008 has been conducted with the aim to examine to what extent Swedish farm magazines report on climate change and to identify drivers for farm magazine coverage of climate change. The study identifies 1) an increased reporting on climate change in 2007 and 2) editorials and bottom-up engagement are aspects that have influenced the frequency and content of farm magazine coverage. The paper ends with a discussion of how the results of this study may relate to a wider climate science and policy context.

    Rätt elev i rätt klass: Skola, begåvning och styrning 1910–19502007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the centre of this thesis is the early 20th century’s discussion on school, talent and social organisation. The period that is covered is 1910 – 1950. It is schools in the cities Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö that have been focused on. The overall purpose has been to analyse the importance that talent and intelligence had in relationship with the changes in the educational system.

    Using this as a starting point, it was discussed how views on society’s talent resources and the abilities of individuals have formed 20th century social life. Emphasis on talent led to primarily two things: to utilise good talent and counteract poor talent. The thesis has mainly aimed at examining the social and institutional contexts in which intelligence testing came to be seen as usable. This means that interest has been directed at the influence that different professionals had via deliberations, professionalizing and scientificating had on the forming of schools.

    Theoretically the study has been inspired by Michel Foucault, which provided an excellent starting point that emphasises the connection between education and power. Through different boundaries and conclusions – “separating practices” – in the education system the individuals become visible in relation to different institutional arrangements and can therefore be construed both as individuals and groups. The thesis uses an historic perspective to study how power and knowledge in a given time formulate what is considered as a problem in society.

    Sustainability-profiled incubators, regional factors and the recruiting of tenants2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses incubators that claim a sustainability approach and pays particular attention to their inflow of firms – tenant recruitment. We also discuss external environment influences on tenant recruitment to the incubator. A case study approach examined one sustainable incubator that was successful in exclusively targeting ideas with a sustainable, climate-oriented mission. The results show that regional and inter-regional cooperation, together with a well-planned, structured pre-incubation process, are requirements for securing an inflow of tenants to sustainable incubators. Success also dictates that sustainable incubators apply a generous, non-sector-specific intake approach so that as many entrepreneurs as possible enter the incubator process. Ventures with the greatest potential can then be sifted out from this pool over time. Another factor affecting whether an incubator reaches a critical mass of sustainable tenants is the external environment. Finally, we make some suggestions for demand-side legislation that would support sustainable business ideas and lead markets for climate-friendly solutions. Such legislation would encourage or discourage sustainable and less sustainable technologies, setting us one step closer to an ideally sustainable world.

    Organizing integrated care for older persons: strategies in Sweden during the past decade2015In: Journal of Health Organisation & Management, ISSN 1477-7266, E-ISSN 1758-7247, Vol. 29, no 1, p. 128-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to describe and analyse ways of organizing integrated care for older persons in Sweden during the past decade. Design/methodology/approach - The data consist of 62 cases of development work, described in official reports. A meta-analysis of cases was performed, including content analysis of each case. A theoretical framework comprising different forms of integration (co-ordination, contracting, co-operation and collaboration) was applied. Findings - Co-operation was common and collaboration, including multiprofessional teamwork, was rare in the cases. Contracting can be questioned as being a form of integration, and the introduction of consumer choice models appeared problematic in inter-organization integration. Goals stated in the cases concerned steering and designing care, rather than outcome specifications for older persons. Explicit goals to improve integration in itself could imply that the organizations adapt to strong normative expectations in society. Trends over the decade comprised development of local health care systems, introduction of consumer choice models and contracting out. Research limitations/implications - Most cases were projects, but others comprised evaluations of regular organization of integrated care. These evaluations were often written normatively, but constituted the conditions for practice and were important study contributions. Practical implications - Guiding clinical practice to be aware of importance of setting follow-up goals. Social implications - Awareness of the risk that special funds may impede sustainable strategies development. Originality/value - A theoretical framework of forms of integration was applied to several different strategies, which had been carried out mostly in practice. The study contributes to understanding of how different strategies have been developed and applied to organize integrated care, and highlights some relationships between integration theory and practice.
