    Gift and exchange in the reciprocal regime of the Miskito on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua, 20th century2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is about cultural change in a local Miskitu community on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua, which began when communal property started to be used for both food gifts and market exchange as a result of increasing commercial exploitation. The author explores a contradiction that developed in the economic system during the 20th century. Between 1860 and 1960 the Atlantic Coast was an economic enclave. Men worked as wage labour at foreign companies, and sent home money and purchased goods to women who worked in subsistence agriculture. Communal property was reserved for consumption and food gifts, and there was a stable coexistence of long-term gift and short-term exchange. But after 1960 a commercial exploitation of communal property began that competed with the custom of food gifts in the 1970s, and led to over-exploitation of lobster and turtle. This development was interrupted during the 1980s - the decade of the Sandinista revolution - , but continued after the 1990s. Population increase, external exploitation and few wage labour opportunities have increased the pressure on communal property, and threaten to intensify the contradiction.

    Gift and Market Exchange among the Miskitu on the Atlantic Coast, Nicaragua: A Historical-Comparative Study of Cultural Change, 20th Century2010 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)

    Ensam tillsammans: senmodernitet, gemenskap, individualisering2005Collection (editor) (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Ensam tillsammans : Individuell självständighet och gemenskap med andra, frihet och trygghet, kylig kalkyl och kärleksfull omtanke. Utesluter polerna i dessa begreppspar varandra eller går de att förena?

    Sociologi är vetenskapen om hur vi människor "hänger samman" vilket innebär att sociologen studerar människor i större och mindre grupper och sammanslutningar. Även hur vi "inte hänger samman" eller vad som händer när vi bryter upp från en social gemenskap är en viktig del av sociologens forskningsområde. Frågeställningen löper som en röd tråd genom samhällstänkandet sedan Ferdinand Tönnies formulerade begreppen Gemeinschaft och Gesellschaft i sin klassiska behandling av temat från 1887.

    Tillbaka till framtiden: Familjens betydelse för individens livsval2011Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Synen på familjen och familjelivets former förändras ständigt. Trenden som sedan länge gått mot ökad självständighet och jämlikhet bryts ibland och ett slags nostalgisk längtan efter förment trygghet i svunna tiders föreställda familjegemenskaper inställer sig. Det är inte en pendelrörelse fram och tillbaka över tid utan utvecklingen innebär snarare en rörelse som på samma gång går både fram och tillbaka. Författarna menar att vi idag befinner oss i en tid med en bakåtblickande rörelse och ett sökande efter lösningar på våra problem i det förflutna. Att sådana lösningar riskerar att väcka till liv traditionella över- och underordnings­förhållanden döljs ofta, i såväl människors familjeromantiska drömmar som i det offentliga samtalet. Ett samhällsvetenskapligt perspektiv innebär att betrakta familjen inte bara som något oomtvistat positivt att sträva efter, utan även som en social form av villkorad gemenskap, med fördelar och nackdelar, möjligheter och hinder för medlemmarna. I boken diskuteras vad nyfamilistiska trender i tiden kan innebära för individen, hennes frihet och livsval.

    Projekt SwingPingis: Slutrapport2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    För att inte tröttna snabbt och för att inte hela tiden kräva en vuxen vid sidan kan det vara bramed en översikt över kreativa användningsmöjligheter. Ett längre snöre som medger att manäven kan använda fötterna. Resultatet tyder på att barn och lärare uppfattar hjälpmedlet somen kreativ del i lektionen och undervisningen i ämnet Idrott och hälsa. Barnen uppfattar Swing-Pingis som en möjlighet att få motorisk träning och känna rörelseglädje. Barnen resonerar ocksåkring olika hälsovinster. Lärarna framhåller hjälpmedlet som användbart och lättillgängligt. Detär en tillgång i undervisningen samt möjliggör och kompletterar annan motorisk träning i undervisningen. Hjälpmedlet stimulerar hälsan hos barnen.

    Denna studie visar på relationen mellan rörlighet och utvecklingen av sociala, relationella, emotionella,existentiella och kroppsliga kapaciteter. Studien visar entydigt att människor med funktionshinderhar rätt att utvecklas som kompletta människor och att SwingPingis utgör en viktigkomponent i den utvecklingen.

    Barns musikkomponerande i tradition och förändring2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on education at Swedish community music and arts schools and at primary schools. The aim of the study is to contribute to knowledge formation within the field of music education by examining how children make music in an institutional context and how the development of new approaches in teaching and learning affect how children practise music. This is studied by observing what happens when children aged 9 to 12, compose music when they have access to digital tools in a community music and arts school and in a primary school – with specific focus on how composing tasks take shape under varying contextual and interpersonal conditions. 13 children from a community music and arts school and 21 children from a primary school participated in the study. In order to gather material for this study a survey was undertaken to examine the children’s experiences of music, instruments and digital tools. In order to observe and examine composing activities and the music the children had composed, these sessions were recorded on video. The theoretical framework for the study is based on a sociocultural perspective. The results indicate contextual-related differences between the activities in the community music and arts school and the primary school. The differences are observed in the activities and the music the children compose. By addressing interpersonal-related differences the reason why some groups of children undertake the task of composing and some groups of children do not undertake this task can be examined further.

    Hur skapas "Sveriges viktigaste mediekanal"?: En kvalitativ studie av SVT Barnkanalen2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Att undersöka SVT Barnkanalens anställdas syn på public service och hur de anser att de tillämpar denna syn i sitt arbete.

    Metod: Kvalitativ innehållsanalys, intervjuer samt observation.

    Material: Innehållsanalys av åtta dokument om public service, intervjuer med sex anställda på SVT Barnkanalen samt en observation på SVT i Malmö.

    Resultat: Resultatet av denna studie visar att alla de sex personer som vi varit i kontakt med har sin egen syn på begreppet public service och vad detta innebär i praktiken. Beroende på vad respondenten har för yrkesroll på SVT anges olika definitioner på vad som är det mest centrala kärnvärdet inom public service-television. Kanalcheferna tycks ha en mer övergripande syn på vad public service-uppdraget innebär för dess organisationer. Producenter, inköpare och programledare tycks dock ha en mer branschorienterad syn på uppdraget och har själva plockat ut relevanta komponenter som passar deras yrkesroll. Vi anser att ingen syn på public service-uppdraget är helt fullständig, men adderar vi alla medarbetares tolkningar anser vi att hela public service-uppdraget representeras.

    Spokespersons:  - en studie om hur ICA och Com Hem arbetar med skapade frontfigurer2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syfte är att kartlägga hur Com Hem och ICA arbetar med sina skapade frontfigurer som "spokespersons".

    Problem: Det kan vara svårt för företag att nå ut till sina kunder i dagens hårda konkurrens. Det är därför viktigt att de använder sig av olika strategier för att differentiera sitt varumärke och bli unika på marknaden. En varumärkesstrategi kan vara "spokespersons", där någon blir företagets ansikte utåt. Företagets "spokespersons" syns därefter kontinuerligt i deras reklam. Det krävs att företaget noggrant överlägger vem som ska sammankopplas med varumärket, för att kommunicera ut rätt budskap till sina mottagare.

    Metod: Studien är genomförd med kvalitativa intervjuer och textanalyser.

    Resultat: Våra resultat visade att Com Hem och ICAs "spokespersons" har och är effektiva i deras marknadsföring. Våra resultat visade att de kan vara effektivt att använda sig av "spokespersons" för att bygga ett starkare varumärke, men att det krävs att de blir rätt person. Det finns flera nackdelar med att välja fel "spokesperson" och företag bör noggrant överlägga hur de ska arbeta med dessa för att nå ut till sina mottagare.

    Subjective emotions, political implications: Thinking through tensions and contradictions in feminist knowledge production2014In: Ex aequo - Portuguese Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 0874-5560, no 29, p. 23-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to problematize the social and emotional dimensions of the research process, guided by the following questions: How can we understand our own implication in the research process, in situations of personal interaction, as well as in terms of wider relationships of power? How do we balance the relationship with the research participants so that we as researchers and as feminists establish trust in our interactions, and act in an accountable way in relation to our research participants? And, what is the role of emotions in this context: can we reach a deeper understanding of these complex processes by paying attention to contradictions when subjective desires and collective goals are not in agreement, for example?

    The Cultural Evolution of Democracy: Saltational Changes in A Political Regime Landscape2011In: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 6, no 11, article id e28270Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Transitions to democracy are most often considered the outcome of historical modernization processes. Socio-economic changes, such as increases in per capita GNP, education levels, urbanization and communication, have traditionally been found to be correlates or ‘requisites’ of democratic reform. However, transition times and the number of reform steps have not been studied comprehensively. Here we show that historically, transitions to democracy have mainly occurred through rapid leaps rather than slow and incremental transition steps, with a median time from autocracy to democracy of 2.4 years, and overnight in the reverse direction. Our results show that autocracy and democracy have acted as peaks in an evolutionary landscape of possible modes of institutional arrangements. Only scarcely have there been slow incremental transitions. We discuss our results in relation to the application of phylogenetic comparative methods in cultural evolution and point out that the evolving unit in this system is the institutional arrangement, not the individual country which is instead better regarded as the ‘host’ for the political system.

    The impact of sport on young women’s attitude to physical activity in adult life2000In: Women in Sport & Physical Activity Journal, ISSN 1063-6161, E-ISSN 1938-1581, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 65-86Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sport participation or regular physical activity is often seen as a factor, which leads to better health and well being. Sport also has a social function, as most of the activities are performed together with other people. However, while club sports in Sweden have a stimulating effect on young men, there is a risk that they do not provide enough scope for young women. In particular, early specialization and a high level of seriousness do not suit all young sportswomen. The purpose of this study was to develop a theoretical understanding of the ways in which sport has influenced young women’s lifestyles in terms of their attitudes to physical activity in adult life. The data were collected using strategic interviews and analyzed using the grounded theory method. Based upon the results, young women’s physically active lifestyles varied depending on how they valued their sport in combination with how they handled their sport. Sport was regarded as having a positive effect on health and well-being. This led to the young women studied intending to pursue a physically active lifestyle also in adult life. They enjoyed participating in sport, but not particularly sport with a high level of seriousness or a high level of vigor, which is what characterizes most club sports today.

    Blogg – ett nytt språk?: En textanalys av fyra svenska bloggar.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: syftet med undersökningen är att studera språkliga egenskaper och hur de kommer till uttryck i bloggar.

    Teori: vi använder oss utav teorier som behandlar begreppen offentlighet, nätverkssamhälle, flödesrum, konvergens och narcissism.

    Metod: kvalitativ och kvantitativ analys står som grund för insamlingen av det empiriska materialet. En netnografisk studie har utförts för att få kunskap hur det ser ut på bloggarna. För att lättare kunna undersöka bloggarnas innehåll har vi dekonstruerat texten och därefter analyserat varje mening.

    Huvudresultat: resultaten av vår undersökning bekräftar att det inte finns några regler på hur ett samtal på en blogg ska se ut. I detta offentliga rum är blandningen av de språkliga egenskaperna istället ett nytt sätt att samtala på.

    Nyckelord: blogg, nätverkssamhället, mediekonvergens offentlighet, samtal, textanalys.

    Sociala mediestrategier: - En studie om svenska företags sociala mediastrategier2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Syftet med uppsatsen är att utifrån ett kommunikationsperspektiv redogöra för vilka strategier svenska företag använder sig av inom sociala medier.

    Problem: Den nya utvecklingen av tekniken har förändrat sättet hur människor kommunicerar. Detta har i sin tur påverkat förutsättningar för företag och organisationer som vill nå ut till publiken. På tre år har sociala medier blivit denpopuläraste aktiviteten på Internet. Därför borde det vara naturligt för företag att använda sig av sociala medier som en del av deras kommunikationsstrategi.

    Metod: Studien grundas på kvalitativa telefon- och e-postintervjuer med sex svenska företag. Vi utförde ljudupptagning på de intervjuer där det var möjligt, för att få så rikt material som möjligt till vår analys.

    Resultat: Resultatet visar att det verkar finnas okunskap på företagen kring sociala mediestrategier och därmed otydliga strategier. Det visade sig att företagen använder sig av alla de fyra strategier som presenteras i studien, mer eller mindre då de går hand i hand, dock verkar de inte vara medvetna om det.

    Implementation of innovative attitudes and behaviour in primary health care by means of strategic communication: a 7-year follow-up2012In: Journal of Evaluation In Clinical Practice, ISSN 1356-1294, E-ISSN 1365-2753, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 659-665Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Rationale, aims and objectives: To bridge the gap between theory and practice, methods are needed that promote a positive attitude to change among health care professionals and facilitate the incorporation of new research findings. In this context, communication plays a significant role. The aim of this study was to analyse primary care staff members' readiness to adopt new ways of thinking and willingness to change their work practices by means of strategic communication.

    Method: An evaluative design was used to study a primary care staff cohort for 7 years. The study population comprised all primary care staff in a region of Sweden (n = 1206). The strategic communication encompassed managerial impact, planning and implementation of reflexive communication processes, in addition to activities in three established communication channels (oral, written and digital). A questionnaire was used, and bivariate and multivariate statistical analyses were performed.

    Results: A total of 846 individuals participated in the evaluation (70%). Strategic communication had a significant effect on staff members' new way of thinking (61%) and willingness to change daily work practices (33%). The communication channels had a significant synergy effect on the adoption of new ideas and willingness to change attitudes. Oral and digital communication had a significant impact on staff members' readiness to change.

    Conclusions: Strategic communication plays an important role in the process of creating innovative attitudes and behaviour among primary care professionals. The willingness to change attitudes enhances primary care staff's readiness to change everyday practices, thus facilitating the implementation of evidence-based care.

    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens leksaker är tydligt könsmärkta och alla - även barnen - bidrar till att vidmakthålla föreställningen om vad en flicka eller pojke ska leka med. Därmed begränsas barnens möjligheter till en mångsidig utveckling. Vems ansvar är det?

    Looking into one's own practice: a Swedish study on gender in educational sciences2008In: Journal of Further and Higher Education, ISSN 0309-877X, E-ISSN 0013-1326, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 139-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reports on a study of gender differences in course experiences and achievement of students taking the introductory educational sciences course at Halmstad University in Sweden. Male and female students' completion rates and grades were analysed in relation to the students' grade point averages (GPAs) from upper secondary school and their experiences of the conditions for learning provided by the teachers as well as their own actorship in the course. Based on the idea that the subject of educational sciences and the characteristics of the educational context and setting are more feminine than masculine, the male students were expected to have lower completion rates and grades. A gender difference in completion rates was confirmed, in that 65% of the male and 80% of the female students completed the whole course. Male students also rated the conditions for learning provided by the teacher as well as their own actorship in the course lower than did their female peers. In order to reduce the drop-out of male students, it is suggested that the department/teachers should pay more attention to any gendered aspects of the teaching/learning practices as well as to the educational context in general.

    Undergraduate students´actorship in studying an educational sciences course in a Swedish context2008In: Higher Education Research and Development, ISSN 0729-4360, E-ISSN 1469-8366, Vol. 3, no 27, p. 187-189Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study aimed to investigate how students in an introductory educational sciences course experienced and understood their own actorship during the course, in relation to conditions for learning created by the teachers. The analyses were based on students’ answers to an evaluation questionnaire that produced both quantitative and qualitative data. Those students who experienced opportunities to influence the course activities also stated that they had contributed to the development of the course to a greater extent than did those who experienced no such opportunities. There was no correlation between not feeling informed about the conditions for the course and seeking complementary information. The analysis also generated five different categories based on how the students viewed their own actorship, varying from ‘no actorship since it is not meaningful’ to ‘Real actorship exists’. The results are discussed in relation to methodological reflections and as implications for increasing students’ actorship.

    De första ”Bolognastudenterna” – om aktörskap, yrkesorientering och bildning i programutbildningar: Delrapport från projektet: Före, under och efter utbildningen på Högskolan i Halmstad 2007–20122009Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    I det följande sammanfattar vi de resultat som framstår som mest centrala i studien. Det första vi vill lyfta fram är att studenterna som läser ett grundutbildningsprogram på Högskolan har gjort ett positivt val i den bemärkelsen att de inte har valt högreutbildning för att slippa vara arbetslösa. Studenterna på högskolan värderar både utbildningarnas bildande som yrkesorienterade aspekter som viktiga. I de data som analyserats har vi dock sett att utbildningens betydelse för det kommande yrkeslivet ges allt större betydelse efter hand som de studerar. En annan betydelsefull förändring som skett mellan det första och andra mättillfället är att intresset för ochden upplevda möjligheten att påverka sin egen utbildning sjunker avsevärt. När detgäller studenternas prestationer efter det första studieåret kan vi konstatera att devarierar, och att faktorerna kön och kulturell bakgrund har betydelse. Kvinnor ochstudenter med nordisk bakgrund presterar betydligt bättre än män och studentermed utomnordisk bakgrund. Traditionella sociala bakgrundsfaktorer somföräldrarnas utbildning och yrke visade sig inte han den betydelse för prestationernasom man kan förvänta sig utifrån tidigare studier.

    Abstract [sv]

    Leksaker uttrycker avstånd mellan barn och vuxna

    Konsumtionssamhället är påtagligt i barns leksaksinnehav. En treåring har i genomsnitt 409 leksaker och en femåring 617, enligt det forskningsprojekt som redovisas i artikeln. Leksakerna berättar dock mindre om de enskilda barnen än om vuxenvärldens värderingar och om synen på barndom, menar Anders Nelson och Mattias Nilsson. Ofta antas leksaker vara en länk till vuxenvärlden, men tvärtom gestaltar leksakerna ett särskiljande av barns respektive vuxnas tillvaro.

    Assembling a hypothesis for discussing place competition2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Place marketing approaches are increasingly employed by authorities competing to attract capital. This development has spurred scholarly interest in a growing number of disciplines. While a rapidly mounting number of case studies have provided valuable insights to the field, scholars appear struggling for an advancement of theoretical understanding. As a consequence, the literature is unstructured and the fragmented pieces of insights that exist have to be ordered in a way that allows for a better understanding of place marketing. This discussion paper attempts a few small steps towards that aim. It departs from a simple notion of spatial competition as the least common denominator for place marketing and argues that place marketing is essentially used as a means to improve competitiveness in a hierarchical spatial system. From this basic, yet seemingly overlooked, perspective the article contributes to the emerging literature by presenting six rudimentary but nonetheless essential hypotheses for future research to consider.

    Att förklara människan: Diskurser i populärvetenskapliga TV-program2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The principle aim of the study is to describe, analyze and problemize the ways in which television science documentaries (within a public service context) discursively represent scientific theories, research results and conclusions about the origins of human nature and the causes of human behavior. The study covers 25 programs broadcasted by SVT and UR during a period of four years,2002-2005 , and 12 additional programs are used as a basis for discussion. Most of the programs included in the study are productions purchased mainly from BBC Science. Thus, managing editors, producers and presenters were interviewed for the purpose of illuminating quality judgements and purchasing criteria. A five stage-model of critical discourse analysis has inspired the method which emphasizes the network of communicative practices in which the media text and representation are embedded. That includes media genre, production and narrative conventions as well as the wider historical, social and political/ideological context and discourse practices of which the issues represented are a part. The critical discourse analysis has been complemented by ideas about different documentary modes of representation or basic ways of organizing documentary texts in relation to certain recurrent features or conventions. In the analysis these modes have been applied to understand the degree of transparency and editorial presence and visibility in the science documentaries. The importance of the discourses presented is related to their more applied meanings. When certain descriptions, explanations and understandings of alleged human “basics” gain priority, it may affect the possibilities to define and handle very concrete social issues in a way that is inconsistent with this fundamental perspective. Thus, the ideological function of the science documentaries (as public service-program and educational media) deserves serious attention.

    Creativity in the Research Process: Accompanying Aristotle on a scuba diving excursion in the Red Sea2013In: Nordicum-Mediterraneum, Akureyri: The University of Akureyri , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper investigates creativity as an attitude on demand from the researcher in a special situation in the research process. The situation occurs when the collected data does not coinside with the antecipated result. Hans Joas understanding of creative action is abolished for the adaptation of the Aristotelian concept of practical wisdom (phronesis) as the foundation for the attitude. The data has to be analysed with the unique and particular in focus in order for new connections and relations to be revealed. An attitude concentrated on revealing the particular in the data is necessary. From there a new attitude takes over that focuses the general on behalf of the particular. The research process is exposed in a parallell text on Scuba diving.
