Abstract [en]

In this essay I’m studying an organization that was active in Örebro, Sweden during the time period of 1895-1959. The name of the organization was Pedagogiska sällskapet and was founded by the “folk” school teachers. Together with private girl academies, schools for the deaf and secondary grammar schools they invited everyone interested in education and upbringing questions. The whole teaching staff was working for higher status and bigger interest for their important work from the society, they wanted to reach professionalism. This essay studies Pedagogiska sällskapet from a perspective of professionalism. This essay’s purpose is to study how a smaller dominating organization formed its specific character and which part it possible played in Örebro teaching staff’s tries to become professional. The questions I have asked from resources, which contain board- and society meeting minutes, are divided in two parts. 1) What was the purpose with Pedagogiska sällskapet and what consisted their activity of? Witch people were welcome to take part of the organizations activity? Witch other organizations did Pedagogiska sällskapet work together with and witch did they chose not to cooperate with? Why did the organization stop being active in the end of 1950ies. 2) How can we understand Pedagogiska sällskapets purpose and activity from a perspective of professionalism? In this second part I use different strategies that is used by professionals to se witch identity Pedagogiska sällskapet wanted to create for them selves (for example social closure and alliance). My study shows that the teaching staff used professional strategies in the organization and trough the organization and there for were Pedagogiska sällskapet part of there professional project. It also shows that the identity that the members of the organization created was a liberal elite organization witch sphere of activities consisted of the important education and upbringing questions.
