    View of life in persons with dementia2009In: Dementia, ISSN 1471-3012, E-ISSN 1741-2684, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 481-499Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To study the view of life in dementia. The view of life of an individual is defined as a conception of reality, a central system of values and a basic emotional attitude.Method: Interviews with persons (N = 21) with mild to moderate dementia of the Alzheimer’s type. The interview data were interpreted with a phenomenological hermeneutical method.Results: Despite their cognitive deterioration it was possible to understand the view of life of the participants in the frame of their life story. Their view of life seemed to guide them towards selecting mainly emotionally powerful and value-oriented memories. No exceptional characteristics that could be traced to their dementia disease were found in the participants’ views of life. Conclusions: The view of life of the participants with mild to moderate dementia was vital for their life story and was not erased by dementia.Implications: In order to respect people with dementia as persons, caregivers should strive for gaining some knowledge of their view of life.

    Views of life and sense of identity in people with Alzheimer's disease2010In: Ageing & Society, ISSN 0144-686X, E-ISSN 1469-1779, Vol. 30, no 7, p. 1257-1278Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Making it possible for people with Alzheimer's disease to retain a sense of identity during the process of the disease poses a great challenge to care-givers, professionals and family carers. The aim of this study is to elucidate the role of the view of life of people with Alzheimer's in framing their sense of identity. Is their view of life a vital aspect of their sense of identity? ‘View of life’ was interpreted as a vital aspect of sense of identity, understood as the individual's beliefs about their life history and about the attributes that characterised them. Twenty-one people with mild to moderate stages of Alzheimer's disease were interviewed about their life story. The narratives were interpreted using a phenomenological hermeneutic method. By telling their life story, the participants also narrated their view of life, i.e. their conception of reality, their central system of values and their basic emotional attitudes. By their own accounts, the origins of the narrators' central values and basic emotional attitudes were established in early life. They also expressed a sense of meaningfulness and continuity when looking back on their lives. The findings suggest that for a care-giver or confidant, having knowledge of a person with dementia's view of life is valuable when seeking to confirm that person's sense of identity.

    The interplay of language ideologies and contextual cues in multilingual interactions: language choice and code-switching in European Union institutions2012In: Language in Society, ISSN 0047-4045, Vol. 41, no 2, p. 157-186Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes multilingual practices in interactions inside European Union (EU) institutions. On the basis of our fieldwork conducted in EU organizational spaces throughout 2009, we explore different types of communication in order to illustrate how Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and officials at the European Commission practice and perform multilingualism in their everyday work. In our theoretical and methodological framework, we draw on existent sociolinguistic ethnographical research into organizations and interactions, and integrate a multilevel (macro) contextual and sequential (micro) analysis of manifold data (observations, field notes, recordings of official and semi-official meetings, interviews, etc.). In this way, a continuum of context-dependent multilingual practices becomes apparent, which are characterized by different patterns of language choice and which serve a range of both manifest and latent functions. By applying the Discourse-Historical Approach (DHA) of Critical Discourse Studies (CDS), the intricacies of the increasingly complex phenomenon of multilingualism in transnational-organizational spaces, which are frequently characterized by diverse power-related and other asymmetries of communication, can be adequately coped with.

    Manusbunden VS. Manusfri: - En retorisk analys om vilken inverkan memoria har på actio2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien Manusbunden VS Manusfri är en kvalitativ retorikanalys av Emma Watsons actio (kroppsspråk). I studien analyseras två av Watsons tal, ett manusfritt och ett manusbundet. Syftet är att jämföra utvalda modaliteter ur Watsons actio i de båda talen för att upptäcka skillnaden i actio och vad det har för inverkan på Watsons ethos (karaktär). Den huvudsakliga frågeställningen På vilket sätt påverkar skillnaderna i actio talarens ethos? har besvarats genom att analysera modaliteterna ögonkontakt, gester och rösten genom närläsning av de båda filmklippen. Resultatet av studien visar att det är Watsons ögonkontakt med publiken som skiljer hennes actio mellan de båda talen. Därför upplevs Watson visa mindre välvilja till publiken i hennes manusbundna tal, vilket resulterar i att Watsons ethos sänks i hennes manusbundna tal, men höjs i hennes manusfria tal.

    When private talk becomes public political expression: examining a practice-field hypothesis of youth political development2013In: Political Communication, ISSN 1058-4609, E-ISSN 1091-7675, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 602-619Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research indicates the importance of interpersonal communication in the political socialization process. Investigations of political talk have mostly been restricted to frequency, and the theorizing of its effects centered on cognitive outcomes such as knowledge and ideological identification. This study examined the part played by private political talk in promoting expressive forms of political participation among adolescents. Recent survey panel data from Swedish 13–18-year-olds were analyzed. Results showed that frequency of private political talk predicted the extent of public political expression even when self-selection and previous levels of political expression were accounted for. Data offered some support for an expected interaction of private political talk and political interest in predicting public expression. The overall findings are consistent with the theoretical idea that political talk offers adolescents opportunities to enact participation in safe settings, and that this is a mechanism that can explain why talking about politics is favorable for political development during adolescence.
