    Monstervisan i retorisk och historisk belysning2010In: Rhetorica Scandinavica, ISSN 1397-0534, no 54, p. 30-48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett missfoster har rest sig ur graven för att förkunna, ett sto har fött människobarn med hästhovar, en man har förvandlats till hund … Det är några exempel på utgångspunkterna i en genre skillingtryck från 1600-talet och 1700-talets början. Sällsamma missbildningar och metamorfoser görs i monstervisorna till offentliga angelägenheter, till speglar av samhällets tillstånd och individens tygellöshet som förorsakat detta tillstånd. Denna koppling mellan samhälle och individ gör monstervisorna intressanta för en retorisk analys. I historievetenskapliga analyser har liknande material använts för att belysa vidare företeelser som svunna tiders syn på abnormitet, estetik och genus. En retorisk analys kan emellertid få monster visan att framträda i sin egen rätt, eftersom en sådan analys innebär en närläsning som sätter visans utformning och processinriktade interaktion med mottagaren i brännpunkt. I föreliggande artikel visar jag hur dessa till synes bisarra visor fungerar som en form av epideiktisk retorik

    Sverigedemokraternas budskap 2005-2010: en retorisk studie av ett annorlunda parti2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis originates from an interest in the relationship between rhetoric and democracy and how a society deals with controversial ideas. In Swedish politics, the Sweden Democrats is an exemplification of this. The aim of the dissertation is to, through a rhetorical perspective, illustrate, explain and discuss the perceived complexity of problems related to the Sweden Democrats on the basis of the following three questions: How are the Sweden Democrats viewed in public debate regarding publishing ads from the party? Which ideas are expressed in externally and internally addressed communication from the party? What communicative and argumentative strategies can be found in this communication?

    The foundation of the thesis is argumentation theory, epideictic theory, visual rhetoric and humor theory. The overall methodological procedure is hermeneutic, applied through close reading of the material with a holistic approach. This is then applied by using the theoretical perspectives in analysis of debate, argumentation, and visual rhetoric.

    The results of the analysis shows that the publishers’ positions regarding ad’s change, but not their view of the party, which is perceived as changed in presentation but not in politics. The analysis of the Sweden Democrats communication does not give a conclusive answer. It shows that they are rather consistent in their topics, but adapt the presentation to the rhetorical situation. Reoccurring strategies are a consistent presentation of the main conflict in society as between Swedes and immigrants, conveying Muslims as a threat, and simple solutions to complex problems.

    Finally, this thesis discusses the categorization of the Sweden Democrats as a xenophobic nationalistic party and the potential for ideological criticism with rhetorical terminology and from a perspective inspired by Luthin’s categories of demagoguery.

    Abstract [en]

    Social media is awash with images that women post to represent themselves: their lifestyles, bodies, communities, and aspirations. On Instagram, women’s health and fitness accounts are promoting the taking and posting of selfies in similar terms, encouraging women to use before-and-after ‘progress selfies’ to chart their body changes across time. This presentation, given by Dr Olive, will explore progress selfies re-posted on the Instagram account of women’s fitness celebrity, Kayla Itsines, to consider how healthy bodies are understood as always ‘in progress’.

    Young Chinese Australians' subjectivities of ‘health’ and ‘(un)healthy bodies’2016In: Sport, Education and Society, ISSN 1357-3322, E-ISSN 1470-1243, Vol. 21, no 7, p. 1091-1108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Young people with English as an Additional Language/Dialect backgrounds are often identified in public health messages and popular media as ‘bodies at risk’ because they do not conform to the health regimens of contemporary Western societies. With increasing numbers of Chinese students in Australian schools, it is necessary to advance teachers' understandings of the ways in which these young people negotiate notions of ‘health’ and ‘(un)healthy bodies’. This paper explores the ways in which young Chinese Australians' understand health and (un)healthy bodies. The data upon which this paper focuses were drawn from a larger scale study underpinned by critical, interpretive, ethnographic methods. The participants in this study were 12 young Chinese Australians, aged 10–15 years, from two schools. Photographs of a variety of bodies were sourced from popular magazines and used as a means of interview elicitation. The young people were invited to comment on the photographs and discuss what ‘health’ and the notion of a ‘(un)healthy body’ meant to them. Foucault's concepts of discursive practice and normalisation are used alongside Chinese concepts of holistic paradigms and Wen–Wu to unpack the young people's subjectivities on health and (un)healthy bodies. The findings invite us to move beyond Western subjectivities of health and (un)healthy bodies and highlight the multidimensional and diverse perspectives espoused by some of the young Chinese Australians in this study. The research findings can inform future policy and practice relevant to the exploration of health and (un)healthy bodies in health and physical education and health and physical education teacher education.

    Attitudes toward Attitude: Kenneth Burke's views on Attitude2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, a review of Kenneth Burke's use of the term attitude in his published works as well as in some unpublished notes, drafts and letters, is performed. Three periods of different usage are found. Early works feature a pervasive attitude with elements of both body and mind. This attitude is then subsumed into the pentad and the physiological connection is diminished, but attitude is given an important function as a connective between action and motion. The later Burke reinstates attitude as central to his theory of symbolic action, reconnects it to the physiological and includes it in the Pentad with parsimony-inducing effect. The attitude is then found to aid rhetorical analysis and show promise in being able to help analyse expressions not wholly in the realm of the conscious, be they in the form of a Bourdieu social practice or barely conscious rhetorical markers in conversation.

    Örebro i strålkastarnas ljus – nattsvart!: En studie om hur ett retoriskt angreppssätt på kriskommunikation kan utveckla och bidra till hanteringen av den kommunikativa aspekten av en kris2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ambitionen med denna uppsats har varit att undersöka hur retorisk teori kan bidra till och komplettera området för kriskommunikation. Genom en intervju med Örebro kommuns kommunikationsdirektör och genom en teoretisk fördjupning har vi sammanfört en praktikers perspektiv med ett teoretiskt perspektiv. Vi har tagit avstamp i den retoriska situationen och undersökt hur ett retoriskt angreppssätt kan öka förståelsen för den kommunikativa aspekten av en kris samt vilken nytta en kriskommunikatör kan ha av att se på en kris som en retorisk situation. Resultatet visar att den retoriska situationen kan bidra med ett nytt och givande perspektiv på kriskommunikation. Inom den retoriska situationens tre konstituenter - exigence, audience och constraints - kommer ethos, topiker, doxa, narrativ, identifikation, kairos och decorum att skapa ett kompletterande och systematiserande förhållningssätt till kriskommunikation.

    En strävan efter kundlojalitet: -En visuell retorikanalys av Mercedes-Benz Magazine2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att försöka kartlägga vad Mercedes-Benz argumenterar för genom sin tidning Mercedes-Benz Magazine och till vilken publik de då vänder sig till. Frågeställningarna har varit: 1.Vilken tes eller teser driver Mercedes-Benz Magazine? 2.Vad kan Mercedes-Benz retoriska val innebära då det gäller identifikation och åtskillnad? För att kunna besvara frågorna har de topiker och premisser Mercedes-Benz Magazine nyttjar i sin argumentation studerats. De teoretiska utgångspunkterna har varit ethos och identifikation.  Studien föreslog att de övergripande teserna i Mercedes-Benz Magazine var: 1). Merceeds-Benz bygger exklusiva, eleganta och snygga bilar. 2) ”Vi” som kör Mercedes-Benz är lite mera ”bildade och målmedvetna” lite ”yngre och mer dynamiska” och vi intresserar oss för ”kultur och konst”

    Teserna och de stöd Mercedes-Benz Magazine angav för dessa har sedan fungerat som utgångspunkt för en diskussion utifrån de retoriska begreppen identifikation och åtskillnad.  Uppsatsen föreslår att den publik som tycker att estetik och elegans är det viktigaste kriterierna vid köp av bil troligen kan identifiera sig med avsändaren. Detsamma gäller för den delen av publiken som känner sig, känner ett behov av att känna sig, eller vill uttrycka att de är mera kulturellt orienterade, lite yngre, mer bildade, mer trendiga och mer dynamiska än andra människor.

    Abstract [en]

    In light of recent enthusiasm in composition studies (and in the social sciences more broadly) for complexity theory and ecology, this article revisits the debate over how much composition studies can or should align itself with the natural sciences. For many in the discipline, the science debate—which was ignited in the 1970s, both by the development of process theory and also by the popularity of Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions—was put to rest with the anti-positivist sentiment of the 1980s. The author concludes, however, that complexity-based descriptions of the writing act do align the discipline with the sciences. But the author contends that while composition scholars need not reject an alignment with complexity science, they must also be able to critique the neoliberal politics which are often wrapped up in the discourse of complexity. To that end, the author proposes that scholars and teachers of composition take up a project of critical analysis of analogical invention, which addresses the social conditions that underlie the creation and argument of knowledge in a world of complex systems.

    How to be a Realist about Similarity: Towards a Theory of Features in Object-Oriented Philosophy2018In: Open Philosophy, E-ISSN 2543-8875, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 327-341Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay calls for an independent theory of features in object-oriented philosophy. Theories offeatures are in general motivated by at least two interconnected demands: 1) to explain why objects have thecharacteristics they have, 2) to explain how regular divisions in those characteristics can be intuited. Whilea theory of universal properties may be the most internally consistent means of addressing these demands,an object-oriented metaphysics needs to address them without a concept of shared features. This meansthat regular divisions of invariant features and our intuitions of them cannot be explained by the repetitionof self-same characteristics or natural laws. They can instead be explained by the immanent repetition ofsimilar features. However, this requires a new, radically aesthetic understanding of what it means to besimilar in the first place, one in which similarity is an emergent process rather than a state of affairs existingbetween resembling particulars.

    Att bruka men inte förbruka ett industriellt arv: En kvalitativ studie om att förvalta Stripa gruva i det moderna samhälletMaria Sarbäcken2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I dagens moderna samhälle finns det kulturarv, traditionella som moderna. Industriella arv är moderna kulturarv, och det är vanligt att de moderna kulturarven har svårare att accepteras i samhället. Det finns en problematik gällande industriella arv i vem som ska förvalta dem, för blir de inte förvaltade så kommer de vara tomma kvarlämningar. Det finns även en komplexitet i att upprätta en balans mellan att bevara och nyttja de industriella arven. För det första måste de bevaras, då de är något historiskt från våra tidigare generationer. För det andra måste de nyttjas för att kunna överleva sett ur ett ekonomiskt perspektiv. Stripa gruva är ett exempel på ett industriellt arv som ligger i Guldsmedshyttan, Lindesbergs kommun.

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur industriella arv, med Stripa gruva som fallstudie, kan bevaras för efterkommande generationer. Fokus ligger på hur industriella arv förvaltas och hur arbetet sker för att uppnå en balans mellan att bevara och nyttja industriella arv i dagens moderna samhälle. Studien utgår från följande frågeställningar: Vad innebär det att förvalta ett industriellt arv? Vilka problem och möjligheter finns? Hur ser avvägningen ut mellan att bevara ett industriellt arv och verksamheters nyttjande av platser och dess anläggningar?

    Studien är en fallstudie av Stripa gruva som industriellt arv, den utgår från en kvalitativ ansats i form av intervjustudier med tjänstemän på Länsstyrelsen Örebro och Örebro läns museum, som alla idag arbetar eller tidigare har arbetat med Stripa gruva. Studiens teoretiska ram utgår från dagens kunskapsläge om industriella arv i det moderna samhället.

    Efter genomförd studie går det att konstatera att förvaltningen av ett industriellt arv kan innebära problem, utmaningar och möjligheter. Det innebär ett ansvar, då en historia ska representeras. Den mest hållbara förvaltaren till ett industriellt arv är kommunen, vilket blev Lindesbergs kommun i fallet med Stripa. Det industriella arvet är kommunens tillgång och kommunen kommer alltid finnas kvar, i jämförelse med ett privat företag som kan gå i konkurs eller säga från sig ansvaret. Stripa gruva behöver bevaras, samtidigt som det behöver nyttjas. I arbetet kan byggnadsminnesförklaringen vara ett verktyg som är relevant att använda, om det uppstår någon problematik. Det gäller även att ha en tydlig vision om vad det industriella arvet ska användas till, i Stripa är visionen att driva ett besöksmål, vilket anses vara relevant med tanke på att kulturen har blivit allt mer integrerad i turismen.

    Tracking the origins of Physical Education in Argentina and Australia2016In: International Journal of the History of Sport, ISSN 0952-3367, E-ISSN 1743-9035, Vol. 33, no 8, p. 777-796Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The origins of sports in Argentina and Australia have been widely investigated. However, little research has been conducted to investigate the origins of Physical Education (PE). This paper explores the origins of PE in both Argentina and Australia. It first describes the general social context and the education system for both countries. Then, it explores the foundations of PE as a school subject and as a university degree in Argentina and Australia. Finally, it compares the origins of PE in both countries. The research reveals how these two countries share similarities and differ in regard to the origins of PE both as a school subject and as a university degree.

    Abstract [en]

    Almost every commercial in television nowadays aim to sell a product or service. This researchpresents two big actors in the grocery chain and their respective commercials. The two actors thatare presented in this research are Lidl and Coop. Both Lidl and Coop are among the largest grocerychains in Sweden. By examine two commercials from each company we aim to find how theircommercials are structured. It’s also interesting to search how they work with commercials alongtheir business idea. What makes this research relevant is that it has been relatively few studies onthis case.

    About two years after publishing so called Muhammad cartoons in Denmark, the Swedish regional newspaper

    Nerikes Allehanda in Orebro published an editorial on self-censorship. A drawing of Prophet Muhammad as a Roundabout dog, drawn by Lars Vilks, was illustrating the article. Publishing of Muhammad drawing was followed by reactions both in Sweden and in some other countries especially in the muslim world. There are many differences and similarities between the publishing in Denmark and Sweden. There are differences and similarities between the two cases even regarding to the reactions in muslim countries. Mass media have certainly played an important role in mediating information about the publishing to people in muslim countries. Which information and how they were mediated are significant for shaping perceptions and thereby the reactions that followed the publishing of Muhammad drawing in Sweden. This essay is investigating how newspapers and online newspapers (web newspapers) in nine muslim countries reported about the publishing of Muhammad drawing. The subjects that newspapers were interesting of and the discourses domination reporting are in focus for this investigation. This essay will also investigate how newspapers and online newspapers in muslim countries covered two issues which were well covered by Swedish media, A threat against Lars Vilks from organization "Islamic State in Iraq" and a statement from the Iranian president Ahmadinejad regarding the Muhammad drawing in Nerikes Allehanda.

    From a Fröbelian tradition during intelligence testing to methods of observation of children  : continuity and change in a local pre-school education in Sweden2009In: , 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    From my thesis From mother of Mother of Society to a teacher for younger children prepared for new research (2008) were my aim was to throw light upon the basic values and representations of knowledge within a local female teacher education tradition in Sweden and identify what kind of expectations are held of a pre-school teacher over time. The main question concerns central values and notions in a local pre-school teacher education regarding what is expected of a recognised pre-school teacher between the beginning of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st century. A key interest is how these underlying values and notions are maintained and how they are transformed over time. In addition the purpose was how you can understand the preschool teacher education today in light of a preschool teacher education tradition from the 20th century.

       A specific topic in the pre-school teacher education was “child observation”. The topic changed over the years and my interpretation is that the topic functioned primarily as a measuring tool in order to legitimate the topic of child psychology. The consequences were that children were seen as individual objects worthy of scrutiny. Psychological knowledge appeared at the local arena in terms of pedagogical skills and the topic “child observation” can be seen as a mediating tool that legitimises theories of psychology in the practical arena. It also attempts to legitimise work with small children. From this view a new question for this conference is raised: How can we understand documentation and observation of children in light of history, tradition and from what James Wertsch (2002) called voices of collective remembering? How can we understand different kinds of children’s diversity in this light? Perhaps we must include an awareness of what voices we take for granted from our collective memories and from our working-history.

        The empirical sources include in-depth-interviews with 22 lecturers and supervisors from a local pre-school education in addition to document studies of selected materials from the archives of the Department of Education at ÖrebroUniversity and at the Örebro University Library in Sweden. The historical context and the dimension of time have been analysed using James Wertsch’s (2002) conception of voices of collective remembering in addition to the concepts of knowledge cultures (Englund & Linné 2005, Nerland 2008) and communities of practice (Lave and Wenger 2003).

    Analysing multimodal argumentation within the pragma-dialectical framework: Strategic manoeuvring in the front covers of The Economist2017In: Contextualizing Pragma-Dialectics / [ed] Frans van Eemeren & Wu Peng, Amsterdam, Neteherlands: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2017, p. 335-359Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, I argue that the theoretical assumptions and concrete analytical concepts of Pragma-dialectics constitute a fertile ground for the study of visual and multimodal argumentation. This is primarily because the pragma-dialectical theory takes a procedural, pragmatic and functional approach to the study of argumentation which allows it to incorporate insights from the growing field of multimodal discourse analysis. Within the pragma-dialectical approach, next to the evidentiary function of visual images other argumentative functions can be researched, such as the use of images to advance a standpoint, to criticize, to explain and to draw attention to various aspects of the argumentative procedure. It is also argued that Pragma-dialectics can accommodate insights from multimodal analysis in order to account for the meaning conveyed not only by the verbal and visual content but also by the verbal and visual style as well as by the interplay of the various semiotic modes. Moreover, its focus on the institutional constraints and possibilities of a variety of communicative practices makes it possible not only to consider the context in a systematic way in order to reconstruct multimodal argumentative discourse but also to describe specific argumentative activity types which employ images and text. As a case in point, I analyse a series of front covers from The Economist in order to show how the interplay of image and text amounts to strategic manoeuvring.

    Argumentative functions of visuals: beyond claiming and justifying2013In: Virtues of argumentation: proceedings of the 10th International Conference of the Ontario Society for the Study of Argumentation (OSSA), 22-26 May 2013 Windsor, ON / [ed] Dima Mohammed; Marcin Lewinski, Ontario Society for the study of Argumentation (OSSA) , 2013, p. 1-17Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Up until now, the study of the argumentative role of visuals has been restricted to theformal concept of argument as product, consisting of premises and conclusion. In this paper, I adoptthe pragma-dialectical approach to argumentation as a social and discursive activity in order toexplore argumentative functions of visuals that go beyond claiming and justifying. To do this I payattention to the visual form and to the interaction between the verbal and the visual mode inargumentative discourse.

    Des 'craintes' légitimes aux 'craintes irrationnelles': Analyse argumentative de l’inscription des modalités appréciatives dans les textes du débat public sur les nanotechnologies2014In: Discours - Revue de linguistique, psycholinguistique et informatique, ISSN 1963-1723, E-ISSN 1963-1723, Vol. 15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies the way in which evaluative modality is used in argumentative discourse. The aim is to identify the strategic ef ect of the various linguistic realisations of evaluative modality in two argumentative moves, namely the move of advancing a standpoint and the move of advancing arguments in support of the standpoint. This ef ect depends on the distinct function that each of these moves plays in a debate. As a case in point, the strategic ef ect of evaluative modality is studied in a corpus of 51 texts produced by various stakeholders during the public debate on nanotechnology in France held between 2009 and 2010.
