    Fler män än kvinnor?: En studie av könsobalans bland unga vuxna i Sveriges kommuner2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats handlar om den skeva könsfördelningen bland ungdomar i åldern 20-24 år i Sverige.

    Fokus som kommer framförallt att ligga på ett kommunalt perspektiv men också efter SKL:s kommungruppsindelning. Syftet är dels att undersöka hur själva könsfördelningen ser ut runt om i landet, men också genom att undersöka vad konsekvenserna kan bli för Sverige på en kommunal såväl som en nationell nivå. Nedslag kommer att göras i två kommuner i olika delar av landet. Båda kommunerna har en väldigt stor snedfördelning mellan könen i ålderskategorin 20-24 år. Frågeställningarna som uppsatsen utgår från är: – I vilka typer av kommuner finns det en obalans mellan män och kvinnor i åldern 20-24 år? – Vilka konsekvenser skapar en skev könsfördelning för Sverige på såväl nationell som kommunal nivå? – Hur arbetas det förebyggande för att minska den skeva könsfördelningen på kommunal nivå? – Hur kommer det sig att vissa kommuner har en större könsobalans är andras? Hur kan detta motverkas? I uppsatsen kommer både kvalitativ och kvantitativ metod att användas. Den kvalitativa delen utgörs av två intervjuer och den kvantitativa delen utgörs av offentlig statistik som presenteras med hjälp av kartor och tabeller.

    De huvudsakliga slutsatserna som arbetet kommer fram till att anledningen till att vi på ett nationellt perspektiv gått från ett kvinnoöverskott till ett mansöverskott framförallt har orsakas av att dagens män lever allt längre i kombination med att det föds fler män än kvinnor. Den kommunala snedfördelningen är framförallt orsakad av flyttningar där kvinnor i lite högre utsträckning än männen väljer att lämna hemkommunen för storstäder respektive studentstäder. Orsaken grundas bland annat i att kvinnor i högre utsträckning påbörjar högskolestudier än vad män gör. De kommungrupperna med skevast könsfördelning, från högst till lägst är "varuproducerande kommuner, "glesbygdskommuner" och slutligen "pendlingskommuner". De kommungrupper med jämnast könsfördelning är "större städer" följt av "storstäder". De konsekvenser som kan uppkomma ur ett nationellt perspektiv är bland annat samhällsklimatet blir hårdare. En större andel bittra män som upplever sig som ratade av både samhället och av kvinnor löper ökad risk för att utveckla kriminellt beteende och extremism. Svårigheterna med att hitta en partner leder till att vi får barn allt senare. Ur ett kommunalt perspektiv är den minskande andelen ung och arbetsför befolkning de största problemen. Många mindre kommuner har en högre andel äldre vars vårdbehov ökar. Kommuner med en hög andel män utvecklar lätt ett väldigt patriarkal samhällsklimat vilket både skrämmer bort unga kvinnor men också har en negativ effekt på männens hälsa. För att undvika ovanstående problem behövs det bland annat att det arbetas mer aktivt med jämställdhetsfrågor ute bland mindre orter. Det måste även bli mer attraktivt att stanna kvar i småkommunerna och arbetsgivare måste visa att det finns andra yrken än bara inom industrin och vården. Ur ett nationellt perspektiv måste det satsas på att höja mäns betyg i skolan.

    "de va ju jag som va syndaren va?": En analys av ju i vardagliga samtal2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka användningen av "ju" i vardagliga samtal. Det primära materialet för undersökningen är därför en ljud- och bildinspelning av ett vardagligt samtal mellan tre unga kvinnor. Ur detta samtal analyseras en sekvens där "ju" förekommer med samtalsanalys (CA) som metod. Analysen visar att den främsta funktionen hos "ju" i denna sekvens är att skapa gemenskap och engagemang.

    Alexanderteknik för emotionellt uttryck i musik: Alexanderteknik som metod för en effektiv spelteknik, och en tillfredsställande musikalisk framställning riktat huvudsakligen till den klassiska gitarristen2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay, I want to achieve an accessible and applicable entrance to Alexander Technique as a method for learning to use the body in such a way as to allow emotional expression in music. It is necessary to see the real need of Alexander Technique for the active musician, and therefore important components of music-making will be presented. These components are presented from an Alexander-perspective in order to produce a clear picture of the method of application.The prerequisite for emotional expression in music is musicians and music listeners with the ability to generate, and respond after emotional impressions. Alexander Technique provides an approach to make it easier for musicians, especially guitarists, to express emotions in a performance situation.After years of practice and obtaining musical knowledge and practical skills at the instrument, it is common that muscle tension and ingrained patterns contribute to limited expression. Muscle tensions arising from pressured situations such as auditions, competitions and concerts. Repetitive movements contribute to this, and lays the foundation for an insufficient technique. It is clear that traditional learning methods need to be complemented with an approach that treats body awareness as an essential part of musical performances. The notion that the use of the body affects mental states is now a truism, and one can see an opening towards new approaches that facilitate learning as well as performance of musical works. The emotional expression is in focus here, and this study deals with musical production based on the philosophy that music should be driven by decisions involving emotional expression.

    Historier: arton- och nittonhundratalens skönlitteratur som historisk källa2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna antologi diskuteras hur skönlitteratur kan användas som källa till historiskt inriktade studier. Upprinnelsen är en konferens som hölls hösten 2008 i Göteborg, då företrädare för disciplinerna historia, idéhistoria, ekonomisk historia och litteraturvetenskap presenterade sin forskning. De många bidragen ger en översiktlig bild av forskningen kring litteratur som historisk källa bland svenska forskare.

    VAD ÄR KUNSKAP I MUSIK?: - En intervjuundersökning av två musiklärares uppfattning om kunskap i musik2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna magisteruppsats är att undersöka två musiklärares uppfattning om kunskap i musik. Uppsatsen baseras på en diskursanalys där jag i intervjuer med två musiklärare ställt frågor som berör deras kunskapssyn. Utsagorna vittnar om två ganska skilda beskrivningar där det musikaliska uttrycket betonas i den ena medan vikten av att eleverna har de verktyg som krävs för och musicera i grupp den andra. Även om utsagorna skiljer sig åt verkar instrumentalspelet och sången spela en viktig roll. I ena fallet som en form av kanal för det musikaliska uttrycket medan det i det andra fallet fungerar som en typ av färdighetsmässig nyckel till den gruppgemenskap som musicerandet innebär. I sina beskrivningar av andra moment som musikteori och musikhistoria framstår de som betydelsefulla först då det vävs samman med instrumentalspelet och sången. I musiklärarnas utsagor framträder en bild där vissa kunskapsmoment värderas högre än andra vilket också får betydelse för musikundervisningen.

    Working with complex problem behaviors in juvenile institutional care: staff’s competence, organizational conditions and public value2014In: International Journal of Prisoner Health, ISSN 1744-9200, E-ISSN 1744-9219, Vol. 10, no 4, p. 239-251Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    Institutional staff encounter juveniles with complex problems (externalizing and internalizing)which calls for adequate formal education/training and professional experience to deliver quality treatment, contributing to an effective organization and increasing public value. The purpose of this paper is to investigate staff’s formal education, professional experience and the institutions’ organizational strategies providing knowledge and clinical training to staff.

    Design/methodology/approach

    The study includes staff questionnaires from eight wards (n¼102). In addition, 39 in-depth interviews were conducted with management and staff members.

    Findings

    Results show that institutions lack clearly defined target groups, 70 percent of staff members lack college education, 30 percent has never been offered education within the organization, and the vast majority of staff does not feel competent in performing their daily work.

    Practical implications

    The results from this study shed light on an overlooked area in institutions, detention centers and prison settings, and are important to policy makers and governmental organizations responsible for coercive care of juveniles.

    Originality/value

    Unlike previous studies, treatment and detention organizations are emphasized as similar to manufacturing industry and profit organizations, and the results are discussed with departure in organizational theory.

    Integrating Sensitizing Labs in an Educational Design Process for Haptic Interaction2016In: FORMakademisk, ISSN 1890-9515, E-ISSN 1890-9515, ISSN 1890-9515, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 1-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    New design methods for educating designers are needed to adapt the attributes of haptic interaction to fit the embodied experience of the users. This paper presents educationally framed aesthetic sensitizing labs: 1) a material-lab exploring the tactile and haptic structures of materials, 2) a vibrotactile-lab exploring actuators directly on the body and 3) a combined materials- and vibrotactile-lab embedded in materials. These labs were integrated in a design course that supports a non-linear design process for embodied explorative and experimental activities that feed into an emerging gestalt. A co-design process was developed in collaboration with researchers and users who developed positioning and communications systems for people with deafblindness. Conclusion: the labs helped to discern attributes of haptic interactions which supported designing scenarios and prototypes showing novel ways to understand and shape haptic interaction.

    Mitt Komponerande, Kreativitet Och Teknik: Självstudie av den egna kompositionsprocessen2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay describes a single case self-study of a music composer in order to track the compositional process in real time. In the study the subject and the researcher are the same person. The study builds on previous empirical studies that have used methodological approaches such as analysis of computer-based digital data collection, verbal protocol and video observations. It deals with issues of the compositional process related to for example time consumption, number of artistic decisions, the different roles and skills of a music composer, and methods of research in the musical composition process. During three shifts the researcher worked as a music composer dealing with the issue of converting an audio sketch of a composition into a representative finished audio product. The aim of the study was to highlight a specific phase the composititional process. The results can be divided into artistic and a scientific perspective. An artistic result is a developed and improved musical composition. Examples of scientific results is making visible and discussing artistic strategies in the context of musical composition. The study discusses different artistic roles that the composer uses during composing, each role with different skills and conditions, and how this role-playing significantly may influence the artistic result.

    Vision om jämställdhet - en illision?‏: En kvalitativ studie om jämställdhet inom samboförhållanden.2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study was conducted to investigate how subordination and superiority emerges in the interaction between heterosexual couples between 20 to 30 years old, without children. Eight semi-structured interviews with four couples have been conducted to provide insight into how subordination and superiority is made in the interaction between the cohabiting couples. All interviews were transcribed and then manually categorized along specific main themes and sub themes. The empirical data were then assayed by a hermeneutic interpretation.   Three previous studies have formed the basis for this study, Det kallas kärlek by Carin Holmberg, the anthology, Jämställdhetens pris and Familjer i tiden by Christine Roman and Helen Peterson. The theoretical framework consists symbolic interactionism, and especially the concept of asymmetrical role-taking and also doing gender. By using these theories, we can gain knowledge about the interaction between the pairs. We have also enlisted the aid of the theory doing gender to gain an understanding of how household distribution of the pairs look like.   The analysis of the empirical material showed that the majority of the women were the initiator in the relationship, with regard to housework and leisure. It was also in the female and male informants' statements that the primary responsibility for the division in terms of housework was on the women. In this way, one can, using the theory of asymmetric role- taking, identify the subordination of the woman in the relationship.

    Arrendatorerna på Aspa Bruk 1851-1930: En arbetskraftreserv med andra villkor till det patriarkala systemet än yrkesarbetarna2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte har varit att studera maktordningen på Aspa Bruk genom arrendatorerna under tidsperioden 1851-1930. En hegemonisk teori har använts som utgångspunkt.

    I uppsatsen framkommer det att arrendatorerna inte var någon homogen grupp och att de befann sig i systemet på andra villkor än yrkesarbetarna. Relationen arrendator och bruksledning var uppbyggd kring arrendekontraktet som begränsade handlingsmöjligheterna för arrendatorn. Kontraktet ersatte således till viss del patronens ständiga närvaro. I uppsatsen liknar jag det sociala systemet på bruket med en triangel utan bas. De horisontella relationerna är frivilliga medan de lodräta är ett måste att förhålla sig till.

    Fängslande svenskamerikanska levnadsberättelser i skuggan av krisåren 1927-19382011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I have investigated the change of letter-writing Swedish Americans' life stories during the period 1927-1938. The purpose of this study was to investigate the fate of Swedish Americans' life stories in the years 1927-1938. In order to make the study of life stories, I have assumed that in those  judgments about the past / present and future as well as assessments of the relationship to their homeland and the new land can be found in correspondence with the home country. To study the life story, I have seen these as indicators of the level from which the following questions are formulated:

    * What was the dominant information contained in the Swedish-American newspapers during the different periods?

    * What are the flashbacks and the present and future assessments  ​​Swedish Americans made in the letters and life stories? *

    *How do the writers looked at the Swedish and the U.S society in the letters and life stories?

    Research on Swedish Americans' situation in the years 1937-1938 is meticulously with. Has the Swedish American situation studied, it has usually been in a larger study and then have only appeared as parentheses. Research Position regarding emigration and the Great Depression is widespread as separate phenomena. Unite the two, studied Swedish Americans during the recession years are open research issues to be found. Theoretically, my talk dealt with concepts such as identity, culture and narrative elements. The method has been hermeneutic. The study I have concluded that America was a big disappointment for those who just around the Great Depression arrived. Those who went over in the 1920's experienced a few years of good times, but ended abruptly in depression, as reflected in the letters. Exceptions are the unestablished working women who felt they got better. Of the material to judge the weighted otherwise these people the Swedish society more than the U.S.. Often they felt cheated, deceived and betrayed. While they ended up in the crisis, America provided the beginnings of a welfare state building in Sweden. Some returned to Sweden, but many could not afford to do so. The of the hardest hit by the crisis and thus had the greatest reason to yearn for the security of Sweden were often settled in America until the crisis subsided and they could work together money for a passage ticket. Without fully able to confirm it, it seems that the growing security of the new Socialist society in Sweden became more attractive to those who traveled close to the depression and for those most affected.

    The Swedish-Americans who had been a long time in America often had a more hopeful attitude, they had known of the bad times in America before. The Swedish-Americans who had been better off had also often a more hopeful attitude. Swedish-Americans who were involved in agriculture seems more have waited out the hard times in America instead of returning to Sweden. They had a more individual approach and in many cases had gone to America as a result of land hunger. Their prospects looked at this way, different than what many of those gainfully employed prospect did. The employed worker perspectives were often shorter and therefore had not the same long-term strategies and hence the same need to confirm the American dream for their environment. Their approach was also more collectivist and were therefore more attracted to the political direction of Sweden took over what the farmers of Swedish-Americans were. In the essay once I have seen how a predominantly hopeful and reflective approach (1927-1930) of its presence in history, the present and the future is shifting into question (1931-1934) and then to action (1935-1938) in his letters home to Sweden. During 1927-1930 presents the most Swedish Americans reflective biographies. They believe the period on American society and looks still a future where, despite the fact that The Great Depression begins to develop. 1931-1934 is considering a questioning attitude in life stories. An increasing number of Swedish-Americans drafted that country they were in did not live up to their dreams and their life story did not include the American dream. 1935-1938, it is not questioning that characterizes the letter writing, but it's determination and transparency. Protective barrier to the home country is gone and the writers acknowledge the greater the distress they experienced. To Sweden attributed the home in terms that they have decided to either stay in America, that they now lived through the worst and that everything can only get better or they write home about her defeat and tells us that they intend to return to Sweden as soon as they can. The relationship to American society against the Swedish follow in much this. During the first period is approaching, most Swedish-American writers in American society. The result is that they are also distancing themselves from Swedish society. During the period of two distances itself a major part of Swedish-Americans away from American society as well as those at the same moment an expression of overtures to the Swedish society. In period three when the goal awareness strengthened by the Swedish-American writers and society business cycle returned upward, it was a third of the writers who clearly distanced themselves from American society. Some of these returned to Sweden, others were not able to do it even though it was their desire.The drawback with the letters as source material has been that the poorest Swedish Americans not been seen partly as a result out of that they had no money for postage and letters and it may have been because they were not literate. Furthermore, the disadvantage of the material to the Swedish-Americans who had an active approach to his Swedish background are not illustrated. These are disadvantages because out there can give a distortion of the source material. The last problem has been partially mitigated by the source material is supplemented with life stories that are recorded afterwards. After all, it has been possible to find biographies of the letters but in the deepest crisis distorted letters to a large extent to the type identities of other Swedish-Americans. This is particularly evident in the letter writer who has a short expectation horizon, ie professional workers. Some time after the crisis, depicting the letters again their own life stories.

    Galna män av kvinnliga genier: –En studie av gotiska genrekonventioner i Aurora Ljungstedts Hin Ondes Hus och Lucie Lagerbielkes En Sällsam Upplefvelse2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Primärkällorna utgörs av de två skönlitterära verken Hin Ondes Hus (1853) av Aurora

    Ljungstedts och En Sällsam Upplefvelse (1913) av Lucie Lagerbielke. De båda verken har en

    anknytning till några av gotikens centralfigurer och förhåller sig på olika sätt till gotikens

    genrekonventioner. Undersökningen syftar till att utreda vilken funktion verkens författare har

    låtit det explicita inflytandet av den gotiska strömningen fylla och hur förhållningssättet till

    gotiklitteraturens klassiska genrekonventioner kommer till uttryck.

    Metoden är komparativ där gotiska motiv urskiljs och redogörs för. Den teoretiska

    utgångspunkten är en genrediskussion utifrån Yvonne Leffler respektive Mattias Fyhrs

    definitioner av gotik och vilka komponenter som krävs i ett verk för att bestämma

    genretillhörighet.

    Analysens resultat visar att författarna låtit inflytandet av den gotiska strömningen fylla olika

    typer av funktioner. Där Ljungstedt följt de klassiska genrekonventionerna i större

    utsträckning och låtit verket syfta till att frambringa den njutbara rysningen. Lagerbielke å

    andra sidan har ett annat ändamål och budskap med sitt verk, men följer också i stor

    Abstract [sv]

    Världen vi lever i idag påverkas ständigt av tekniken och dess kontinuerliga utveckling. Med hjälp av det har vi idag möjlighet att komma närmre historien än någonsin förr. Historien är inte längre begränsad till framställningar i historieböcker eller på museer, utan har med teknikens hjälp fått nya arenor och blivit mer lättillgänglig för alla. I det offentliga stöter vi på, och har tillgång till historia genom en mängd olika forum som exempelvis internetsidor, tv-program, serier och filmer.

    Sedan hösten 2012 har det svenska folket haft möjlighet att utveckla sina kunskaper i historia av svensk matkultur genom tv-programmet Historieätarna. Programledarna Erik Haag och Lotta Lundgren färdas genom olika tidsepoker och får provsmaka både det ena och det andra ur den svenska mathistorien. Under sin tid i de olika epokerna får de också prova på att leva med den specifika epokens levnadsförhållanden. Programmet uppskattades till den grad att det även fick  producerades i en barnanpassad version i form av en julkalender år 2015.1

    Att närmare undersöka på vilka sätt historien faktiskt skildras, används och influerar samhällen i programmet, är intressant då olika mediers influenser av historieframställning bidrar till att aktivera vårt historiemedvetande och påverka vår historiesyn och genom det formas vårt samhälle. Inte sällan används också historia till att söka förklaringar eller legitimera något som rör politik, ekonomi eller sociala strukturer som har förbindelser till historien. Vårt förhållande till det förflutna aktualiseras i samhällsutvecklingen och omvandlar med tiden kontinuerligt kulturarv till historia.2

    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.

    I ständig strävan efter framgång?: föreningsdemokratins innehåll och villkor i Örebro Sportklubb 1908-892014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation is to study the conditions of and changes in sociative democracy processes at club level. One sports club is studied, Örebro Sportklubb (ÖSK), from its foundation in 1908 up to 1989. The main sources are club minutes, member magazines and annual reports. Democracy, and its twofolded relation to sport and economy processes, is the main problem area of the study. The specific question is how aspirations for economic effectiveness and sporting success influenced the democracy processes in ÖSK between 1908 and 1989.

    The Swedish sports movement has been described as a democratic movement. But the same movement has also been portrayed as an undemocratic movement made of men, for men. The study is based on a broad understanding of the democracy concept where issues of representativeness, influence, participation and knowledge are prominent. At a club level, the study is analysing the contents of the Swedish sports movement's democracy and its change during the 1900s. The thesis also illustrates how the pursuit of economic efficiency affected the associative democracy. These efficiencies were visible already in the 1920s, but was deepened during the 1970s. In short, the democratic range decreased, and successful sections became less and less motivated to finance the deficits of other sections.

    But the increased market orientation did not only represent a threat to the associative democracy. Marketisation and commercialization also preconditioned the democracy. At the club arena (Eyravallen), the members met in the clubhouse and café which, in turn, deepened the social capital and friendships within the club.

    A repertoire of possibilities: visualized masculinities in a Swedish sportsclub 1908-092015In: Book of abstracts / [ed] Radmann, A., Hedenborg, S., Tsolakidis, E., European College of Sport Science , 2015, p. 280-280Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction and aim When designing our identities we are inclined to use images of our selves, as well as pictures of ’the others’. Images are interwoven with our culture and society, as well as with definitions of history and truth. The overall aim of this study is to analyse, by using a visual method, masculinizing and de-masculizing processes. More specific, the objective is to study how a dominant masculinity manifested itself in associative visuals (and texts), and how these images of domination changed during from 1908 to 1989. Theory and method Drawing inspiration from Bourdieu (2001) and Connell (1995), the theoretical perspective is based on the production and reproduction of a dominant and hegemonic masculinity manuscript at a associative level. Results from their work reveal that images and expectations about men and women make us asymmetrically associated with e. g. sexuality or age. This means that the norms of masculinity dictate how athletics are visualised or objectified. In turn, the norms and actions of masculinity are hierarchical, i.e. men see themselves in relation to a dominant masculinity or an alternative femininity. (This process always includes several other potential power perceptions.) From this perspective ideals and identities can vary both between men and within the same man, when, for example, the context changes. The method is a textual and visual analysis of how the hegemonic manuscript conditions and permeates the images and texts, e. g. in what is being captured or why, how a photograph is taken, how the athlete is portrayed and so on. More specific, the numerical representations of men and women respectively are counted along with more qualitative characteristics of how men and women were portrayed. Results and discussion The photography of a man always contains a potential to construct and categorise differences of gender. The ambition of the study is to say something universal about the mechanisms of the (re)production of male dominance in an organisation. The overall conclusion shows the difference in being objectified or portrayed, visually and textually, with and without respectively, a preserved subject position and status. Although, there are arguments for a changeable masculinity, sometimes the ideal masculine identity shows little variance. The changing aspects are particularly interesting as the study object grasps over an 80- year period. The discussion will focus on what power mechanisms are being used to reproduce a dominant, masculine order in the association. References Bourdieu, Pierre. (2001). Masculine domination.

    In The Name of Democracy: Varieties and continuities of associative sports masculinities at club level during the 20th century2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the first half of the 20th century the Swedish Sports Confederation became the dominant sports organisation in Sweden. In short, the organisation adapted a representative democratic principle and argued that it fostered its members to democratic citizens. In turn, this legitimised annual state grants but did not prevent long-time male domination within Swedish sports. This paper deals with the contradictive contents of sports masculinity (e. g. being similarly democratic and exclusionary) and, more specific, it focuses the long-time duration of masculine domination in a Swedish, voluntary sports club and how different visual and textual strategies were used to strengthen the masculine hegemony in the organisation.

       The method draws inspiration from the concept of hegemonic masculinity, understood as something restraining and contradictive, and Wetherell & Edley´s (1999) more fine-grained analytical tool called “imaginary positions”. The source materials are texts and photos in members reviews of Örebro Sports Club and the chronological period is two-folded divided from the foundation of the club in 1908 to 1933 and from 1967 up until 1989 when the club was dissolved into different juridical persons.

       The results show that masculine positions were not only about winning and expressing a successful, active and struggling masculinity. The hegemonic (and heroic) position offered a range of possibilities to express and visualize masculinity but the very same position, on the other hand, contained plain borders towards deviant sexuality, functionality, ethnicity and gender. The discussion involves an approach to understand the results in relation to the difficulties of challenging patriarchy and male domination in sports.

    ‘Power in the arm, steel in the will and courage in the breast’: a historical approach to ideal norms and men’s dominance in Swedish club sports2018In: Sport in History, ISSN 1351-5462, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 365-402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From both a quantitative and qualitative perspective, research shows that men and masculinities have dominated the Swedish sports movement for a long time and that sport as a so-called ‘democratic people’s movement’ has been criticised for being a male movement. Given the self-made claims of the Swedish Sports Confederation’s fostering of inclusivity and democratisation, this study encompasses a critical and historical perspective on the inclusive and exclusive dimensions of sport. The study object is a Swedish sports club and the specific aim is to analyse the prevailing norms and ideals and how they eventually helped to reproduce men’s domination in a local sports club. Chronologically, the paper uses a historical comparative approach studying the club’s 1910s–1920s and 1970s–1980s. The research questions put are: What characterised the norms of the ideal member and collective membership in terms of gender and did these change over time? Is it possible to find specific examples of inclusion and exclusion techniques by studying the club’s photographs and stories? The main result shows subtle and explicit power techniques that reproduced (some) men’s superior position at the club level.

    The Art of Being Big, Strong and Full of Power: Swedish Combat Sports, Norms and Gender from the 1990s up until today2016In: 9th Meeting of the Transnational Working Group for the Study of Gender and Sport: 24th-26th November 2016, Bochum, Germany, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Generally, men have dominated the field of modern sports. Consequently, many sports carry associations where traditional ‘male’ characteristics and qualities are valued and traditional ‘female’ characteristics and qualities are devalued (see eg Messner, 1992). More precisely, many sports ‘create’ men and ideals of masculinities. In this paper combat sports (MMA, boxing, karate, Japanese jujitsu etcetera) are studied as examples of sports that shape gender and body ideals. Combat sports express at least two typical ideals of masculinity: muscle strength and (sanctioned) control of violence (Brace-Govan , 2004; Gill, 2007). Women who have exercised these sports have thus been challenging men’s ‘monopoly’ of being strong, big, violent and powerful and other traditionally ‘male’ norms. The aim of this paper is to study, from a gender perspective, how Swedish combat sports have changed since the 1990s. The main question is: How is the increased number of women in combat sports to be understood? Is it a sign of a (feminist) emancipation or has the inclusion of women been on exclusive terms - that is, do men’s domination find new ways to exercise its powers? In the end, this paper also raises questions of the changing contents of violence and muscularity. In so far, the material consists of focus group interviews and individual interviews with combat sports women, from the elite to the recreational level. Magazines will be analysed during 2016-2017. Theoretically, the paper draws on theories of hegemony and gender (Connell, 1983, 2005, Hearn, 2015). The preliminary results show that women, on one hand, portray active subjects that challenge male (sporting) traditions and male norms. Combat sports, some women tell, are increasing ones self-esteem and self-confidence. On the other hand, the female versions of combat sports are not taken as seriously as the male version, which becomes obvious by lower compensation and less media attention. Women are also expected to act as feminine subjects and are thereby ‘forced’ to relate their bodies, clothes etcetera to social and more general understandings of feminine ideals (cf. Clasen, 2001).

    Våld föder våld, eller?: Om män, sportvåld och formande av hegemonisk manlighet som bidragande riskfaktor till våldet i samhället2017In: Tidskrift för politisk filosofi, ISSN 1402-2710, Vol. 2, p. 1-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna artikel undersöker argumentet att det våld och den hårda fysiska kontakten som vissa idrotter innehåller, samt de ideal som hyllas i dessa, bidrar till en normalisering av mäns våldsanvändning mot andra människor även utanför själva idrottsarenan. Sportvåldet tolkas med inspiration från den kritiska forskningen om män och maskuliniteter och ses som ett led i upprätthållandet av en hierarkisk, patriarkal maktordning. I artikeln förs en diskussion kring vissa idrotters normalisering av våld som problemlösande metod och huruvida sådana idrotter skapar mer våldsbenägna män. Slutsatsen är att det i vissa idrotter kan finnas en riskfaktor för somliga män.

    Cultural Awareness and Democratic values in Swedish EFL Coursebooks.: A study of the promotion of cultural awareness and democratic values.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this essay is to analyze how two different coursebooks, Pioneer 2 andContext 2, present non-white/non-western culture and contribute in promoting both cultural awareness and democratic values at English 6 of Swedish upper secondary school. To be able to do such an analysis a broad theoretical background on cultural awareness and democratic values is given. The essay will demonstrate that the textbooks of the study have different approaches to cultural awareness and that textbooks used in language teaching can be different while still attaining the overall purpose of the Swedish curricula. The first book presents a lighter and less detailed view on culture, but with more varied sections using authentic texts, comparisons between cultures and static cultural outlook. The second book uses fewer examples but goes more in depth with each example using authentic texts, intercultural comparisons, and focused sections, leading to a better understanding of culture as dynamic.

    Indigenous and tribal peoples' health (The Lancet-Lowitja Institute Global Collaboration): a population study2016In: The Lancet, ISSN 0140-6736, E-ISSN 1474-547X, Vol. 388, no 10040, p. 131-157Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: International studies of the health of Indigenous and tribal peoples provide important public health insights. Reliable data are required for the development of policy and health services. Previous studies document poorer outcomes for Indigenous peoples compared with benchmark populations, but have been restricted in their coverage of countries or the range of health indicators. Our objective is to describe the health and social status of Indigenous and tribal peoples relative to benchmark populations from a sample of countries.

    Methods: Collaborators with expertise in Indigenous health data systems were identified for each country. Data were obtained for population, life expectancy at birth, infant mortality, low and high birthweight, maternal mortality, nutritional status, educational attainment, and economic status. Data sources consisted of governmental data, data from non-governmental organisations such as UNICEF, and other research. Absolute and relative differences were calculated.

    Findings: Our data (23 countries, 28 populations) provide evidence of poorer health and social outcomes for Indigenous peoples than for non-Indigenous populations. However, this is not uniformly the case, and the size of the rate difference varies. We document poorer outcomes for Indigenous populations for: life expectancy at birth for 16 of 18 populations with a difference greater than 1 year in 15 populations; infant mortality rate for 18 of 19 populations with a rate difference greater than one per 1000 livebirths in 16 populations; maternal mortality in ten populations; low birthweight with the rate difference greater than 2% in three populations; high birthweight with the rate difference greater than 2% in one population; child malnutrition for ten of 16 populations with a difference greater than 10% in five populations; child obesity for eight of 12 populations with a difference greater than 5% in four populations; adult obesity for seven of 13 populations with a difference greater than 10% in four populations; educational attainment for 26 of 27 populations with a difference greater than 1% in 24 populations; and economic status for 15 of 18 populations with a difference greater than 1% in 14 populations.

    Interpretation: We systematically collated data across a broader sample of countries and indicators than done in previous studies. Taking into account the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we recommend that national governments develop targeted policy responses to Indigenous health, improving access to health services, and Indigenous data within national surveillance systems.

    Föräldraråd som samverkansform i förskolan: En studie om föräldrars och pedagogers upplevelser av föräldraråd2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår studie behandlar fenomenet föräldraråd i förskolan. Vi har i denna undersökning fokuserat på pedagogers och föräldrars upplevelser av föräldraråd som samverkansform i förskolan. Undersökningen syftar också till att undersöka om dessa upplevelser skiljer sig åt och i sådana fall på vilket sätt. Vi har antagit en fenomenologisk utgångspunkt där man fokuserar andra människors upplevelser av deras omvärld och använt oss av kvalitativa intervjuer för att undersöka vad upplevelserna av föräldraråd är. Vi har i denna undersökning valt att intervjua tre pedagoger och tre föräldrar på en förskola. Förskolan består av tre avdelningar där vi har intervjuat en förälder och en pedagog från varje avdelning. I vårt resultat framkommer det olika upplevelser av föräldraråd, både likartade och skilda upplevelser. Vårt resultat visar att pedagogernas och föräldrarnas likartade upplevelser är att föräldrarådet är ett bra forum för föräldrarna att kunna påverka, att de övriga föräldrarna inte visar ett intresse för att engagera sig i föräldrarådet och att de föräldrar som ingår i föräldrarådet är engagerade föräldrar som har en genomslagskraft i sitt sätt att driva frågor. Det framkommer även en likartad upplevelse där både pedagoger och föräldrar upplever att frågor som rör ekonomin är svåra att påverka. I vårt resultat framkommer det, förutom likartade upplevelser, också skilda upplevelser av föräldraråd där föräldrarna upplever deltagandet i föräldrarådet som givande och intressant och pedagogerna upplever att det är jobbigt och visar ett ointresse för att delta. Vi kan också se att det framkommer upplevelser som skiljer sig i sättet att driva frågor. Föräldrarna upplever att de tar hänsyn till det kollektiva behov som finns på förskolan och pedagogerna upplever att föräldrarna driver frågor framåt som gynnar deras eget intresse. När det gäller pedagogiska frågor upplever pedagogerna att föräldrarna inte vill påverka dessa samtidigt som föräldrarna upplever att de vill påverka den pedagogiska verksamheten som rör hela förskolan.
