Abstract [en]

Around 1970, violence among pupils became conceptualised in a radically new way when the concept of “mobbing” was introduced into the Nordic school debate. The concept was immediately embraced by popular discourse with the result that significant attention and discussion followed. It was also soon picked up by researchers and became further developed within Swedish and Norwegian behavioural science. This article concerns how pupil violence in the form of bullying was understood and theorised in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s in Sweden and Norway. It shows how certain political and intellectual conditions, and events, in both national contexts were decisive for the development of bullying theory, eventually leading up to a commercialisation of bullying theory. This development is discussed with the help of the concept “psychology-commercial complex,” derived from Pickstone’s theory of technoscience.

Abstract [sv]

De flesta av oss har minnen kopplade till vår gamla skolgård – raster med avsides ro eller vild lek, gymnastik lektioner med idrott och tävlingar eller undervisning, kanske i naturkunskap eller bild. Idag har skolgården blivit en naturlig del av skolan, men hur har denna plats blivit så självklar? I sin intresseväckande bok redogör författarna Anna Larsson, Björn Norlin och Maria Rönnlund för den svenska skolgårdens historia utifrån historiskt källmaterial och människors minnesberättelser. De beskriver hur skolgården har tagit form och förändrats som koncept, hur den fysiskt har formgetts och utvecklats, och hur den har använts för social samvaro. Boken ger en ny och samlad kunskap om skolans utemiljö som ett pedagogiskt och socialt rum, både i en historisk och nutida kontext.

Abstract [en]

This article describes how school social workers and teachers perceive their cooperation with each other with regard to pupils’ well-being in Swedish schools. A total of 23 qualitative interviews were conducted with a strategic sample of teachers and school social workers. The analysis of the interview data was based on Andrew Abbott’s theory of the system of professions, and the cooperation and boundary work of the two professional groups are discussed in terms of jurisdictional conflicts and “cultural machinery”. The analysis shows that on a general level both school social workers and teachers seem to agree about the need for school social work, but tensions and diverging views were uncovered when investigating the cultural machinery in their daily work. This study shows how both of these professional groups protect the boundaries of their own jurisdictions, but also how these boundaries are relaxed when social workers and teachers jointly try to solve everyday problems.

Abstract [en]

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to examine ideas and notions in the founding and development of the area of mental health services in school in Sweden, with special focus on school psychology and school social work. Design/methodology/approach - From a history of thought perspective, this paper investigates public Swedish school-related documents from the early 1900s up until the 1980s in order to reveal the influential ideas about school health care, children's needs, and professionals' responsibilities. These ideas are linked to the twentieth century development of the behavioural sciences, the school system, and the welfare state in Sweden. Findings - Two main turning points are identified. The first occurred in the 1940s when psychologists and social workers were invited to become part of schools as experts on children's mental health care, implying that mental health issues had become included in the school's responsibility. The second turning point came in the 1970s when the tasks and the ideational context for the mental health experts changed dramatically. The first turning point challenged the dominant explanation model, a model that relied on scientific references to medicine, and eventually led to an acceptance of psychology instead as dominant provider of explanatory models. The second turning point affected the tension between child and system, and implied a subordination of the needs of the system for the benefit of the needs of the child. Originality/value - This paper highlights how views on children's needs and on the responsibilities of school and its professionals have been constructed and conceptualised differently over time and how those views are connected to changes in science, school, and society.

Abstract [sv]

I ljuset av samtidens förändrade medielandskap och samhällsgrundade spänningar om historieframställningar framstår de historiska mediernas roll i dagens och historiens historieämne i ungdomsskolan som en historiedidaktiskt angelägen fråga. Med denna fråga i fokus utformades forskarskolan Historiska medier: forskarskola i historia med didaktisk inriktning i början av 2011. I denna antologi ges en samlad presentation av elva studier från forskarskolan som berör de historiska mediernas roll, funktion, villkor och användning. Studierna bidrar till den historiedidaktiska forskningen, och erbjuder också verksamma och blivande historielärare en möjlighet att utveckla sin kunskap om hur medier påverkar undervisning och lärande i historia.
