    Working in knowledge-intensive organisations when it is impossible to be physically present: female employees who suffer from chronic illnesses2018In: Human resource management: A Nordic perspective / [ed] Helene Ahl, Ingela Bergmo Prvulovic & Karin Kilhammar, London: Routledge, 2018, p. 177-189Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In knowledge-intensive organisations, it is unnecessarily limiting to define the workplace as a physical building encompassing a ‘nine to five’ work shift. Much knowledge-intensive work can be conducted off-site using various forms of information technology. For the chronically ill, an inability to access the physical workplace is often used as an excuse to remove the employee, with little effort made to keep them employed via different work methods. This isolates the former employee and causes a loss of their, often considerable, knowledge to the organisation. We must reconsider how we view what work is and what constitutes the workplace.

    Between duty and right: disabled schoolchildren and teachers’ ableist manifestations in Sweden2019In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we discuss ableist manifestations about chronically ill and disabled schoolchildren in Sweden. On claiming their right to schooling, these children risk being excluded due to not conforming with norms while being refused alternative formats that would enable participation. They are then accused of not attending school and construed as problematic. Parents are derided as mollycoddling perpetrators by teachers who perceive themselves as superior knowers of disability and illness, polarising an already infected school debate. Alternative formats for participation are derided, claiming that certain disabilities do not exist or that parents exaggerate their children's symptoms. We concede that teachers' poor work environments due to underfunding and unreasonable workloads are problematic, but we are adamant that unfavourable work conditions must not entail unethical professional conduct. We hope this article will contribute to putting the situation of chronically ill and disabled schoolchildren in Sweden on the radar of Critical Disability Studies as well as in relevant fields of practice and that it might stimulate a change in public debate.

    Evaluation of the effectiveness of an online transition planning program for adolescents on the autism spectrum: Trial protocol2016In: Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health, ISSN 1753-2000, E-ISSN 1753-2000, Vol. 10, no 48, p. 1-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The transition from high school to post-secondary education and work is difficult for adolescents on the autism spectrum. Transition planning can be an effective way of supporting adolescents on the autism spectrum to prepare for leaving school and to succeed in obtaining employment; however, there is a need for an autism-specific transition planning program with proven effectiveness. This paper describes a trial protocol for evaluating the Better OutcOmes & Successful Transitions for Autism (BOOST-A™); an online interactive program that empowers adolescents on the autism spectrum to plan their transition from school to further study, training, or employment.

    METHODS: The trial will involve adolescents on the autism spectrum in high school and their parents, who will be alternately assigned to a control group (regular practice) or an intervention group (using the BOOST-A™). The BOOST-A™ was developed using the PRECEDE-PROCEED model, and is based on the self-determination model, and the strengths- and technology-based approaches. It involves participants completing a series of online modules. The primary outcome will be self-determination, because high self-determination has been linked to successful transition to employment among adolescents on the autism spectrum. Secondary outcomes will include domain-specific self-determination, career planning and exploration, quality of life, and environmental support. Data will be obtained from questionnaires completed by the adolescent on the autism spectrum and their parent/s. Data collection will take place at baseline (Time point 1) and 12 months later (Time point 2).

    DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSIONS: This trial will provide evidence of the effectiveness of the BOOST-A™ to assist adolescents on the autism spectrum to successfully transition from school.

    "Leaps of faith": Parents' and professionals' viewpoints on preparing adolescents on the autism spectrum for leaving school2017In: Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, ISSN 1471-3802, E-ISSN 1471-3802, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 187-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Adolescents on the autism spectrum experience difficulty transitioning from secondary school to post-school activities, often due to transition planning processes that do not meet their unique needs. This study identified parents' and professionals' viewpoints on transition planning for adolescents on the autism spectrum. Interviews were completed with nine parents of adolescents on the autism spectrum and four professionals who worked with adolescents on the autism spectrum. A constant comparison approach was used to analyse the transcripts. Four themes were identified, reflecting parents' and professionals' viewpoints on how to meet the transition planning needs of adolescents on the autism spectrum. Supporting adolescents to grasp the big picture can enhance motivation to participate in transition planning. Autism can be an ‘invisible disability’; therefore, encouraging adolescents to be active participants and to be seen in transition planning ensures their individual needs are met. Encouraging adolescents to have high aspirationsin transition planning develops their self-determination. Finally, to be prepared for the transition from school may reduce the adolescent's' anxiety. Adolescents on the autism spectrum face unique challenges in transition planning. The themes identified in this study provide insight into how parents and professionals might support adolescents with these challenges.

    Measurement and Analysis of Multidimensional Well-Being in Rwanda2019In: Efficiency, equity and well-being in selected African countries / [ed] Pia Nilsson & Almas Heshmati, Cham: Springer, 2019, p. 37-68Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The well-being of families and their children is given high priority in development goals. Children’s well-being in Africa is important since the growing number of children is the greatest resource of this continent. Rwanda was one of the first countries that ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The country, despite its very low GDP per capita, also has one of the best child well-being indicators in Africa. In the recent past the country has also had two important achievements: protection of children by establishing the National Commission for Children and launching a Strategy for National Child Care Reform. The measures aim to protect children’s rights and integrate children into families that are supported to provide needed care to them. These achievements are largely the result of strong laws and policies many of which have been developed with support from UNICEF. Investments in children’s well-being will help in addressing many persistent difficulties that society may have to face in the future. What happens during the early years is of crucial importance for every child’s development. This period offers great opportunities, but children are also vulnerable to negative influences. The objective of this research is to estimate multidimensional well-being of children and their families in Rwanda. The aim is to compute an overall well-being index decomposed into its underlying main components. The households are ranked by the level of well-being and by various household and community characteristics. The results shed light on the state and changes in the well-being of children and their families in Rwanda indicating which provinces and districts offer relatively better conditions for them. This can serve as a model for public policies aimed at improving general well-being in the country.

    Vi ungdomar har också åsikter att säga: En fenomenografisk analys av ungdomars perspektiv på delaktighet2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    According to the convention on the Rights of the Child, every child has the right to freely express his or her opinion. The society has a responsibility to include young people’s participation, hence listen to their opinions and ideas. Nevertheless, it is difficult to implement young people’s participation in practice as children are sometimes viewed as objects in need of protection and viewed by others as independent actors. Adults behavior affects the opportunities to participate and is therefore important to acknowledge. This essay is grounded in previous studies which have observed a need for further research on young people’s own perspective on participation. Consequently, the purpose was to examine youth’s perspective on partic-ipation in matters that concern them, just like article 12 claims. Four research questions have been answered. The first one concerns the youths point of views of participation, the second one their interest in matters revolving around youths in society and the third one concerns what prerequisites the youth’s need to be able and willing to participate. The fourth research question was to what extent young people want to influence issues that concern them. It was answered based on the results of the first and the third questions and is presented in the analysis. The questions have been studied within the case of Jönköping. Data was collected through individual semi-structured interviews with eight participants. With a phenomenographic method the collected data was analyzed. In addition, the data was linked to levels of children’s participation though Hart’s Ladder of Participation which gave the results an order of precedence along with analytical depth and developed a theory. In summary, the findings conclude: the adolescents had experienced that adults often show a degrading attitude towards youth; there is a great interest in questions involving their schools; partic-ipation is important to youth and is every individual’s right; and finally, societal participation needs to be further developed to become known and accessible for youth. It was further categorized into three different ideal types: the indifferent, the reformers and the revolutionary. The analytical constructions should not be viewed as complete and representative for all youths. Rather the result of this study should facilitate an understanding of the many dynamics of adolescents’ participation in society.

    Utilization of patient resources in physiotherapy interventions: Analysis of the interaction concerning non-specific low back pain2014In: Communication & Medicine: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Healthcare, Ethics and Society, ISSN 1612-1783, E-ISSN 1613-3625, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 125-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports on an empirical study in Sweden of how patient resources come into play in physiotherapy interventions. A qualitative analysis was conducted of five video recorded first encounters between patients with non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) and physiotherapists in primary care, using Conservation of Resource Theory (COR) to identify and focus on how physiotherapists made use of patients’ resources (objects, conditions, personal characteristics and energies). The findings reveal variations in how these resources are utilized during the intervention. Resources with implications for what happens in the examination room during the ongoing encounter and resources characterized by professional familiarity were both employed in the intervention. However, underutilized resources were featured in the broader lifeworld perspective of laypeople and of other professional frames. The findings raise questions about professional challenges that go beyond professional skills. This implies that professionals need to improve skills in understanding and integrating patient resources into interventions.

    Telementoring Physics: University-Community After-school Collaborations and the Mediation of the Formal/ Informal Divide2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For several decades improvement of science education has been a major concern of policy makers concerned that the U.S. is a “nation at risk” owing to the dearth of students pursing careers in science. Recent policy proposals have argued that provision of broadband digital connectivity to organizations in the informal sector would increase the reach of the formal, academic sector to raise the overall level of science literacy in the country.

    This dissertation reports on a longitudinal study of a physics telementoring activity jointly run by a university-community collaborative at a community learning center. The activity implemented a digital infrastructure that exceeds the technical and social-institutional arrangements promoted by policy makers. In addition to broadband internet access (for tele-conferencing between students at the community center and physicists at a university), supplemented by digital software designed to promote physics education, the activity included the presence of a collaborating researcher/tutor at the community learning center to coordinate and document the instructional activities.

    The current research revealed a fundamental contradiction between the logic, goals, and practices of the physics instructors, and the corresponding logic, goals, and practices of the participants at the community learning center. This contradiction revolves around a contrast between the physicists’ formal, logocentric ways of understanding expressed in the ability to explain the scientific rules underlying physical phenomena and the informal, pragmatic orientation of the youth and adults at the learning center.

    The observations in this dissertation should remind techno-enthusiasts, especially in the arena of public education policy, that there are no turnkey solutions in “distance” science education. Technically “connecting” people is not equivalent to creating conditions that expand opportunities to learn and a functioning socio-technical system that supports learning. Secondly, for designers and practitioners of informal learning in community-university collaborative settings, it is critically important to understand distance learning activities as developing “cross-cultural, ” collaborative encounters, the results of which are more likely to be hybrids of different ways of learning and knowing than the conversion of informal learning into a tool for instruction that will allow youth to “think like physicists.”

    Teachers Making Sense of Children’s Sense-making: Negotiating Pretense, Exploration, and Teaching in Sustainable, Multi-functional Preschool Environments.2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Preschool teachers in Sweden are currently coping with growing curricular demands to engage in a more formal instruction, and to further develop education for sustainable development (ESD). A consequence of this is that teachers feel pressure to organize activities for very young children that privilege ”knowing that” over ”knowing how,” and to do so in the service of an interdisciplinary project – ESD – that can be challenging to organize in early childhood. As teachers adapt to these new challenges they negotiate tensions consequential to preschool children’s learning and develop- ment. The pressure to reorient to disciplinary learning can detract from arrangements of activities involving pretend and exploratory play. This is because the learning outcomes of these activities can be unpredictable and difficult to define. However, these activities are also associated with the kinds of outcomes (e.g. creativity, innovation, empathy, counterfactual thinking) and ethics (e.g. cultures of collaborative learning) of concern in ESD.

    In this paper we consider how preschool teachers in Sweden are negotiating the demands of engag- ing in more formal instruction and ESD, while cultivating local idiocultures that support children’s pretend and exploratory play. Our examination is based on case studies of teacher teams in three preschools that participated in a series of regional government-sponsored workshops organized to support teachers’ efforts to design their preschools’ outdoor spaces as sustainable, multifunctional environments. The case studies were based on field observations at the participating preschools and teacher interviews conducted prior to, during, and following the said workshops.

    Drawing on cultural-historical concepts of disruptive and productive tensions, we characterize how the participating teachers conceived of pretend play, exploration, teaching, and sustainability in relation to children’s engagement in preschool activities. We focus in particular on how teachers considered examples of activities in which the interaction of children and the material environment afforded pretend and exploratory play; how the teachers and children made sense of their activities through pretense and exploration; and if/how the teachers remediated these activities in ways intended to make the children’s learning visible. How and for whom this learning becomes visible is a central question of concern for us.

    Sport events for future generations: A study of motivations behind environmentally sustainable actions within Swedish recreational sport events2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A growing number of studies acknowledge the effect that sport events have on its surrounding environment as well as the effect the surroundings have on sport events. This has led to a larger focus on environmental sustainability within event organisations, something that however is motivated in very diverse ways and from different perspectives.

    This thesis, therefore, explores motivations behind the incorporation of environmentally sustainable actions within Swedish recreational sport events, and aim to provide an overview of how it is implemented within their operations. This has been done by a qualitative multiple case study with comparative elements. An outline of earlier research of motivational factors towards sustainable actions does together with an elaboration of central concepts, provide a theoretical background for the case study. The theoretical background has been further used to create an analytical framework with three main themes of motivation ‘strategic’, ‘pressure’ and ‘moral/ethical’. The cases, Vasaloppet and Vätternrundan, has been explored through face to face interviews with specific employees of the event organisations and later analysed through the analytical framework of the thesis. In addition to the interviews, documents regarding their sustainability work have together with the information that could be found on the web pages of the two events been analysed through the themes of the analytical framework.

    The results show a close similarity when it comes to the main challenges they are facing. Both Vasaloppet and Vätternrundan have transport as their main source of environmental impact, and the trash generated along the arena is another main challenge in order to reduce littering. Out of the three main themes of motivation, the moral and ethical motivation proved to be the main one, whereas the strategic and pressuring motivations came second and were in many cases closely entwined and related to each other. A difference in motivational background is further expressed by the respondents and policy documents of the event organisations, as Vasaloppet displayed a more proactive attitude while Vätternrundan were more reactive.

    Marginaliserad sexualitet?: Tvångsomhändertagna ungdomars attityder, erfarenheter och handlingar2012In: Socionomens forskningssupplement, no 31, p. 44-52Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Tvångsomhändertagna ungdomar är riskutsatta på många områden. Denna artikel fokuserar specifikt ungdomar på statliga ungdomshem. Vi redogör för hur ett urval av dessa unga har svarat i en enkätundersökning rörande sexuell hälsa samt hur deras svar på flera väsentliga punkter skiljer sig från övriga unga. Forskningsresultatet som är det första i sitt slag i Sverige stämmer väl överens med tidigare forskning som visar på samband mellan flera olika riskfaktorer eller riskbeteenden varav sexuellt risktagande är ett. Tillika ger det viktig kunskap att använda vid utformandet av en målgruppsanpassad modell för sex- och samlevnadsundervisning.

    Fysisk aktivitet för äldre på särskilda boenden: Om inställningar och handlande i svensk äldreomsorg2018In: Journal of Care Research, ISSN 2387-5976, E-ISSN 2387-5984, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 165-176Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Physical activity is described in the literature as positive and important, and has come into focus in recent years. An activity-based theoretical approach dominates in Swedish eldercare, and there are also international recommendations on physical activity for older people. Nevertheless, few studies have explored how the need for physical activity is satisfied at assisted living facilities.

    The aim of this study was to investigate how professionals working in eldercare think about and act to promote physical activities for elderly people. The empirical data consists of observations and interviews conducted at four assisted living facilities in two different Swedish municipalities.

    The results show how cultures and norms are important for how professionals think and act regarding physical activity. There is a contradiction between how professionals discuss elderly people’s need for support for physical activity and how they act in their day-to-day work. There seems to be an acceptance that elderly people’s individual needs cannot be met if professionals have other tasks to perform.

    Approaches to physical activity at assisted living facilities: from the perspective of older people and physiotherapists2018In: European Journal of Physiotherapy, ISSN 2167-9169, E-ISSN 2167-9177Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: Physical activity has been described as important for the well-being of all individuals, including the very old. The aim of this study was to investigate how physical activity is performed at assisted living facilities, the situations in which older people were and wanted to be physically active and the role of the physiotherapist at each facility.

    Methods: To achieve this aim, an ethnographic study including observations and interviews was conducted at four assisted living facilities.

    Results: The results show that physical activity neither was an issue in focus at any of the assisted living facilities, nor were recommendations on physical activity followed. Individuals that were able to exercise themselves could do so, whereas those in need of assistance had but limited possibilities to be physically active. There was a need for physical activity that the staff do not necessarily and sufficiently identify.

    Conclusion: The study illustrated that there were major variations in how older people engaged in physical activity and how physical activities were part of everyday life. Physiotherapists played no clear role at the facilities, especially with regard to preventive exercise. Older individuals were not involved in determining which activities should be made available to the residents.

    APPLYING ENTERPRISE MODELS AS INTERFACE FOR INFORMATION SEARCHING2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays, more and more companies use Enterprise Models to integrate and coordinate their business processes with the aim of remaining competitive on the market. Consequently, Enterprise Models play a critical role in this integration enabling to improve the objectives of the enterprise, and ways to reach them in a given period of time. Through Enterprise Models, companies are able to improve the management of their operations, actors, processes and also to improve communication within the organisation.

    This thesis describes another use of Enterprise Models. In this work, we intend to apply Enterprise Models as interface for information searching. The underlying needsfor this project lay in the fact that we would like to show that Enterprise Models canbe more than just models but it can be used in a more dynamic way which is through a software program for information searching. The software program aimed at, first,extracting the information contained in the Enterprise Models (which are stored into aXML file on the system). Once the information is extracted, it is used to express a query which will be sent into a search engine to retrieve some relevant document to the query and return them to the user.

    The thesis was carried out over an entire academic semester. The results of this workare a report which summarizes all the knowledge gained into the field of the study. A software has been built to serve as a proof of testing the theories.

    Bringing more to participation: Participation in school activities of persons with disability within the framework of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth (ICF-CY)2012Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As societies the world over move towards defining inclusive and effective education systems this presents the educator with the new challenge of providing an equal and democratic education environment for all students. With children the nature of functioning and environmental settings varies greatly in comparison with adults and assessing children’s involvement in activities is of particular importance to ensure effective and inclusive society building through education. Building on the existing and previous participation research this thesis specifically aims to provide a means to theorize participation from two perspectives (frequency of attending and intensity of involvement) and put in to operation using five dimensions of the environment: availability, accessibility, affordability, accommodability, and acceptability. Contextually this has been done by investigating children in need of additional support (including children with disabilities) at school. Results indicate that while research and theory take a holistic and balanced approach by using participation based on two perspectives, this has yet to filter down to practice. A new approach to measuring inclusive education using social capital, the five environmental dimensions, and the ICF-CY is proposed and tested. However, while the ICF-CY provides a consistent descriptive framework, no clear connections between social capital and inclusive education policy could be drawn and the five environmental dimensions – especially the involvement-related ones – need further development. The final paper presents evidence from the individual perspective for a third ICF-CY activities and participation qualifier to represent the subjective experience of involvement. Participation can thus be regarded as a multi-dimensional phenomenon with two main conceptual roots: sociology and developmental psychology.

    IKEA med hållbarhetsglasögonen på: En kvalitativ studie om hur IKEA integrerar ett miljö- och hållbarhetsperspektiv på sin e-handel2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    E-handeln är en accelererande företeelse i samhället och har kommit att bli en central del i den svenska konsumtionen. Svenskarnas konsumtionsbeteende innefattar en hög förbrukningstakt av jordens resurser och likaså stora mängder växthusgasutläpp och är på så vis ohållbar i den mån. En växande miljömedvetenhet bland det svenska folket sätter däremot press på företag och andra verksamheter till att bli mer hållbara. IKEA har tagit ett aktivt beslut att arbeta med att integrera ett hållbarhetsperspektiv med bland annat deras hållbarhetsstrategi som medel. Med hjälp av en sammanfattning av IKEA:s hållbarhetsstrategi och intervjuer med IKEA-anställda, syftar den här studien till att besvara hur IKEA integrerar ett miljö- och hållbarhetsperspektiv på deras e-verksamhet. I resultatdelen framhävs bland annat att IKEA varit sen in på e-marknaden och genomgår nu en omorganisering. Detta i samband med att IKEA förutspår ett skifte där e-handeln kommer att gå om och bli större än den konventionella handeln. Genom att satsa på innovation och teknik för att utveckla hållbara lösningar och verktyg, driver IKEA verksamheten framåt mot en hållbar riktning. Med deras inredningsexpertis strävar IKEA efter att hjälpa de många människorna till en mer hållbar vardag. Hela värdekedjan ska inkludera ett hållbarhetsperspektiv, men den ekologiska fördelen ställs emellanåt mot den ekonomiska fördelen. Cirkulärt tänkande och att främja ett cirkulärt verksamhetstagande är nya utmaningar som IKEA ställs inför. Studien bidrar till en ökad förståelse om IKEA och deras e-handel. Den nya kunskapen som tagits fram beskriver hur IKEA arbetar för att integrera ett hållbarhetsperspektiv inom företagets e-verksamhet. Tydliga exempel på arbetsmetoder, verktyg och lösningar som IKEA tagit fram kan inspirera och vägleda andra företag som strävar efter en mer hållbar e-handel.

    Abstract [en]

    Theoretical and methodological framework

    Sociocultural and postcolonial perspectives on culture, language and identity allow us to empirically investigate how students in cyber communities negotiate and co-construct SpaceTime as a single dimension during the institutionally framed agenda of an online language course focused in this study. Here ‘correct’ languaging or language-use is both a means and a goal in itself. Students gather from all over the world to access the virtual classroom in order to participate and learn the target language. In the online space of the virtual classroom, there is no common locality beyond the pieces of local spaces that individuals can enter. This entering shapes the encounters inside the shared space of the virtual classroom. Such disrupted space is what frames (in terms of constraints and affordances) participation and learning in cyber communities. We argue that in order to understand and empirically study such encounters (or sites of engagement) it is fruitful to use the epistemological lenses of TimeSpace as well as the postcolonial concepts of Third Space and Hybridity. This, we argue, allows us an analytical shift in focus, from what happens inside a space or a community, to what occurs at the boundaries, in-between (virtual) spaces. This is done through a multi-scale analysis of mundane interaction at the micro and meso scales. An augmented conversation analysis (CA) of the interaction at the micro scale allows us to attend to the transmodal and translingual nature of the online encounters. The analysis at the meso scale permits a mapping of the interpenetration of students’ geopolitical spaces in the online site to understand the ways in which students’ (im)mobilities are afforded and constrained by/in cyber educational spaces.

     

     

    Research questions

    Our interests here relate to accounting for how students make sense of the transnational, -lingual, -modal nature of the virtual classroom of which they are members. Going beyond essentialistic theories of language learning, communication and identity, we consider the virtual classroom in terms of a Third Space, a site of transition “between the subject of a proposition […] and the subject of enunciation” (Bhabha, 1994: 53), which entails both an aperture but also a closure to what it means to communicate digitally, through an internet connection across geopolitical borders. This fluidity of positions and languaging (Garcia, 2009), occurring in and across the boundaries of the students’ multiple offline and online communities offers alternative ways of considering how human beings categorize the world in terms of identity, language and culture (Bagga-Gupta, Hasnain & Mohan, 2013) as they endeavor to belong to (and analyze) a group, a community, a tradition.

     

    Empirical material explored

    The empirical data focused here is drawn from a large project at the Communication, Culture and Diversity, CCD research group in Sweden (www.oru.se/humus/ccd/) which includes 80 hours of naturally occurring interactional materials, generated through screen recordings of online sessions of an Italian for Beginners course offered by a Swedish university (www.oru.se/english/research/CINLE, Dahlberg & Bagga-Gupta, 2013).

     

    Preliminary findings

    Our preliminary findings suggest that interactional spaces of virtual courses are co-created by members in the situated-distributed practices across space and time. The epistemologies of ‘SpaceTime’ in such open-spaces are contingent upon members’ (im)mobility in that they are participants in different constellations distributed in online-offline spaces simultaneously. This means that students’ physical locations and embodied dimensions are a part of the online space of the virtual classroom in that they shape and mould the participation trajectories and therefore their access ‘inside’ the virtual site. We illustrate how this multifaceted and multidimensional aspect of virtual encounters is crucial in (institutionally framed) Technology Mediated Communication (TMC) and how it empirically challenges the monolithic, monolingual essentialistic tradition of one language, one nation, one culture.

     

    How the study is related to LanDpost

    The theoretical/methodological underpinnings of the study as well as its preliminary findings are related to the aims and scope of LanDpost through its interests in conceptualizing human beings’ languaging though an empirically informed discussion. The study also aims to show how multisite research in today’s digitalized society (at least in the Global North) relate to the tensions and contradictions which question the assumption of i) what is real vis à vis virtual? ii) what is technologically mediated? and, consequently iii) the often used dichotomy face-to-face/online communication. Such issues are central to the agenda of LanDpost. Our study revisits the complexities of languaging and diversity, especially in light of an essentialistic ontology of here/there, real/virtual, I/the Other which continues to heavily permeate the discourse about online education and telecollaboration in present times.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to discuss whether and how computer games can be used as fiction in literature education in accordance with the new Swedish gymnasium curriculums, GY11. The focus is on the contact points between computer games and fiction regarding learning; foremost building identities, morality and ethics, but also stylistics and concepts in literary science. It is show that, using two examples (Fallout: New Vegas and Grand Theft Auto IV), the narrative elements in computer games can give them room and literary education, and also that immersion, perspective and interactivity can give players something that fiction can’t give its readers.

    Det blev inte av : äldre ensamstående män utan barn på landsbygden: rapport nr 3 från forskningsprojektet Boende, åldrande, livslopp på landsbygden2011Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sverige har det gjorts få studier av vad det innebär att åldras på landsbygden. Den övervägande majoriteten av forskningen om äldre människor och deras livsvillkor produceras med empiriskt material, såväl som frågeställningar, som tar sin utgångspunkt i de förutsättningar som det urbana livet ger. Det urbana fungerar normerande och livet på landsbygden uppfattas ofta i termer av vad som saknas där i förhållande till livet i staden. Kunskapsutvecklingen om livet i glesbygd har därmed kommit att hamna i skymundan (SOU 2006:106). Denna studie är ett bidrag till forskningen om att åldras på landsbygden och i fokus är livet och livsvillkoren för äldre ensamstående män utan barn utifrån ett genusperspektiv. För studien har elva ensamstående barnlösa män på landsbygden intervjuats.

    Social service utilisation patterns among children with mild intellectual disability – differences between children integrated into mainstream classes and children in self-contained classes2015In: European Journal of Special Needs Education, ISSN 0885-6257, E-ISSN 1469-591X, Vol. 30, no 2, p. 220-236Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Children with a mild intellectual disability (ID) and their families often require social services; however, because of the characteristics of the formal service system, these families may be at risk of not receiving necessary services. The aim of this study was to obtain knowledge regarding the types and number of services that families receive from social services because of the child’s disability and because of social problems. Another aim was to acquire knowledge regarding the percentage of families receiving services and to evaluate the received services in relation to the child’s gender, school setting and age. Method. Utilisation of social services among 84 children with a mild ID and their families in two municipalities in Sweden was examined using existing social services records. Results. Approximately one-third of the families received services because of the child’s disability and one-fourth because of social problems. Children integrated into mainstream classes were significantly less likely to receive services from social services because of their disability than children in self-contained classes. The most commonly utilised services because of the child’s disability were companion service, short period of supervision for schoolchildren and special transportation services. The services most utilised because of social problems were help from a personal contact, a contact family for the child’s siblings and financial assistance for the child’s parents. Conclusions. Social services must engage in outreach activities, especially in schools, so that families having a child with mild ID are recognised and receive necessary services.

    War is Peace: A Study of Relationship Between Gender Equality and Peacefulness of a State2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 180 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Based on the previous studies, the hypothesis of this research is that the higher the level of gender equality in a state, the higher level of its peacefulness. It is a quantitative study using linear regression analysis with three variables, namely Global Peace Index (GPI) as a dependent variable, Gender Inequality Index (GII) as an independent variable and Human Development Index (HDI) as a control variable. The data of 139 states from year 2013 were submitted into Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software. The result shows a significant and positive linear relationship between gender inequality and a high level of conflict, which confirms the hypothesis. However, HDI shows to be less reliable as a control variable due to issues with multicollinearity (heavily related independent variables). Further studies should replace the HDI with another control variable.

    Preventing Interstate Armed Conflict: whose responsibility?2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study of interstate armed conflict prevention. The concept of conflict, armed conflict and conflict prevention is defined and explained in order to be able to investigate if there is any single institution saddled with the responsibility of preventing interstate armed conflict and also to verify if adequate efforts are been put in this area which is of importance to mankind. The relationship between conflict prevention, conflict management and conflict resolution is also discussed so that a proper understanding of interstate armed conflict prevention is made.

    The latter part of this study is aimed at investigating who has the responsibility to prevent interstate armed conflict and the importance of external actors in conflict prevention. After which this study will then investigate if the efforts so far made are adequate in preventing interstate armed conflict before a discussion and conclusion is made on the findings of this research.

    Conclusion drawn from this study is of two parts. First it was discovered that no single institution has the responsibility to prevent interstate armed conflict but rather conflict prevention can only be achieved by collective efforts of the international community involving but state and non state actors. Lastly the study showed that quite a lot is being done in this area of conflict prevention but there is room for improvement.

    Who decides what giftedness is?: On the dilemma of researching and educating the gifted mind in the light of culture, political ambition, and scientific dogma.2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Who, rather than what, decides what giftedness is? The academic world traditionally focuses on theoretical descriptors whereas society as a whole is more interested in practical function. This partly divided focus is becoming increasingly critical and problematic as economies are becoming global and the political objective is to create a knowledge economy. High-achieving and creative individuals are becoming key individuals in making the emerging global economy possible. In the wake of this development follows a shift from theoretical understandings of giftedness to a focus on what the gifted and talented can actually do. There are therefore a number of deciding factors in defining what giftedness is: academic concerns and practical concerns as defined by society. Within each social group with various vested interests are individuals promoting and defending their own agenda for a number of reasons, prompted unaware by human nature. Whoever has dominance in any social context also reserves the right to definition of how to understand giftedness and talent irrespective of whether such a definition is scientifically right or wrong. In conclusion the current state of affairs in the light of the global superculture and its constituting knowledge economy is discussed.

    Representerad eller förbisedd?: Fyra samhällsgruppers representation och framställning i tio turistbroschyrer.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    De flesta människor har någon gång hållit en turistbroschyr i sin hand. Antagligen har betydligt färre människor reflekterat över vilka som avbildas i broschyren. Denna innehållsanalys syftar till att, med hjälp av bildsemiotik, urskilja vilka samhällsgrupper som representeras i utvalda kommuners turistbroschyrer och hur de framställs. De olika grupperingarna som valts ut för att studera närmare är kvinnor respektive män, etniska minoriteter, äldre människor och personer med funktionsvariation. Studien görs utifrån ett intersektionellt perspektiv som redogör för kopplingar mellan representation och framställningar till normbildning och olika maktrelationer utifrån kommuners turistbroschyrer. Resultatet visar att kvinnor och män är förhållandevis jämlikt gestaltade utifrån både framställning och representation. Äldre människor finns representerade utefter den befolkningsmängd de faktiskt utgör, dock ses att äldre kvinnor har en tendens att representeras mindre än männen. Endast en person med funktionsvariation återfinns i materialet, medan etniska minoriteter är något fler, dock fortfarande underrepresenterade. De tre sistnämnda samhällsgrupperna framställs som mer passiva och avidentifierade än majoritetsbefolkningen.

    Older twins' experiences of the relationship with their co-twin over the life course2012In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 119-128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on 35 life stories of aging twins, this study focuses on personal experiences and recollections of their relationships with the co-twin over the life course. The participants are part of two longitudinal Swedish twin studies on aging, SATSA and Gender. In the narrative analysis, three relationship patterns, labeled ‘nurturing’, ‘draining’, and ‘superficial’, emerged, pointing to qualitative aspects in the co-twin relationship. The dominating aspect was emotional closeness, which differed in the three relationship patterns. In the nurturing twin relationship pattern, emotional closeness was experienced as intimacy and yet independence, while in the draining relationship pattern it was experienced as dependence. The superficial twin relationship was experienced as distant and lacking in emotional involvement. Most of the relationship patterns seemed to remain the same throughout life. However, seen from a life course perspective, this study pointed to complexity and diversity in lifelong twin relationships.

    'We are not as alike, as you think' sense of individuality within the co-twin relationship along the life course2013In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 27, no 4, p. 339-346Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We have explored how older twins experience and describe themselves in relation to their co-twin. The life stories of 20 older twins were analyzed with narrative analysis.

    Results showed that the twins described themselves from the point of differences in relation to the co-twin. This was based on experiences of how other people viewed them as alike, as well as on life events along the life course, which contributed to the perception of oneself as an individual in relation to the co-twin. The emphasis on unlikeness was therefore interpreted as a way of trying to establish a position as an individual within the co-twin relationship and to assert ones individuality to the rest of the social environment. To claim oneself as an individual was an ongoing identity work along the life course.

    Female Entrepreneurs in Honduras: The Motivation Factors Behind their Decisions2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Entrepreneurial activity can promote economic development on a national level. Women are the most underdeveloped workforce globally. The amount of entrepreneurs is higher in developing countries, where lack of equality, education and resources most detain them from engaging economically. It is crucial to understand what motivates these entrepreneurs, more specifically women entrepreneurs, since they are so important for the development. Few studies have been done about women entrepreneurs’ motivation compared to those done about men and even more scarce are the studies done in developing countries.This study is conducted through interviews and a survey among women entrepreneurs within the PFME. The PFME is a program within the private organisation CCIT that aims to strengthen women entrepreneurs in Honduras through support and education.Push-factors are those motivation factors that come out of necessity and pull-factors are those that come out of opportunity. This study shows that the push-factors are more common among these Honduran women than among women in studies from other countries. Economic reasons and independence are among the highest ranked motivations. Further research need to be done in order to understand what affects these motivation factors on a country level and why there are differences between the motivation of women entrepreneurs in developed countries and developing countries.

    Child Headed Household Experiences: A retrospective qualitative study on parental HIV/AIDS in Zimbabwe and their children’s participation in everyday life2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A chronic or long- term illness challenges conventional family dynamics and can incite concerning familial role reversal, especially upon parental diagnosis. This has been deemed one of the bedrocks of Child Headed Households’ (CHH). The CHH phenomenon is prominent in Sub-Saharan countries such as South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi. It is argued as one of the results of acute poverty conditions or undermanaged health and welfare epidemics akin to HIV/AIDS. This study had the aim to explore the participatory and support experiences of Zimbabwean young adults who due to parental HIV/AIDS began to head their households and or were orphaned during their childhood years. It sought to fill in the gap in literature surrounding the participatory and support experiences of this sample group type. A retrospective qualitative methodology through use of open- ended interviews was conducted. Results showed that the experiences of each child were firstly dependant on the household structure and orphan-hood status. Most of the participants had participation impactful transitionary experiences either within their constructs of their family and homes or, into a new setting. Most CHH faced challenges in attendance in school or play with friends due to basic need provision limitation. The social services in Zimbabwe were commendable in their support towards the participants who needed to be moved from their dire familial homes during early childhood. The Zimbabwean Kubatana culture, which is appraised for its tight knit family units and support was challenged. In terms of achievement of their two- dimensional participation in life, biological or foster parental care and inclusion in a family unit was a suggested solution to children’s full and continual development. This was evident through a recurred expression of the need for parental love and connection in their childhood years.

    Ömsesidiga överenskommelser enligt skatteavtal2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The focal point of this study is mutual agreement procedures, which are found in tax treaties, and derived from Art. 25 OECD Model Tax Convention (OECD MTC). The overall purpose of the mutual agreements is to avoid international double taxation. The agreements can either constitute an alternative to court proceedings, or constitute a means for improving the functioning of tax treaties. Provisions regarding mutual agreements can be found, in various forms, in all Swedish tax treaties. Since Sweden is a dualistic state tax treaties are incorporated into the Swedish legal system by legislation. This means that the provisions regarding mutual agreements are incorporated into Swedish legislation. Legal difficulties that arise regarding the agreements are mainly due to the fact that mutual agreement procedures constitute an internationally, by the OECD, constructed phenomenon, which is to be applied on a nationally, already existing, legal system. It may hereby occur tensions and conflicts between different provisions.

    The overall aim of this study is to identify and evaluate mutual agreements from a Swedish perspective. This includes identifying a relatively unexplored area, i.e. mutual agreements and their place within the Swedish legal system. In order to meet the overall objective, three research tasks are formulated. First, which internal provisions apply to mutual agreements, and how are they to be applied? Secondly, it is examined if the Swedish legal system, regarding mutual agreements, is consistent from three evaluation criteria: the constitutional principles of separation of powers and legal competence, legal certainty aspects, and the provisions of the Vienna Convention of the Law on treaties (VCLT). If there are any inconsistences in the legal system, may these be solved? Thirdly, it is studied if the Swedish legal system, regarding mutual agreements, provides for fulfillment of the purpose of mutual agreements or if there are any legal obstacles to this.

    The thesis is carried out in the field of tax law. However, the study has an interdisciplinary approach, which means that aspects of other areas of law are considered, such as international law, constitutional law, administrative judicial procedural law, administrative law, and secrecy.

    Methodological Reflections on Studying Working Children and Children's Work2005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses different methodological approaches in research studying the phenomenon children-s work in contemporary Sweden. In my research, using a child perspective, I study the children-s own ideas regarding their work and their ideas concerning defining what they think work is and is not out of the many activities they partake in. The number of tasks carried out by children are not concentrated to one place or setting and sometimes their activities are not regarded as work, it is something that is done in small amounts of time, on different arenas, some at home, some in settings outside the family, some are formal other informal, some is paid and other is unpaid. Different settings and arenas call for different methodological approaches. Connected to these methodological aspects is the challenging question of getting -entry- to the field and -access- to the informants. Using different combinations of methods can be a technique to overcome problems regarding -entry- and access-. The paper discusses how different methods such as interviews, questionnaires, children-s drawings and pictures plus participant observations can be used in combination trying to make research with a child perspective possible and to research something as non-static and scattered as children-s work.
