    Language and Identity: attitudes towards code-switching in the immigrant language classroom2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Although many studies have been conducted on second language acquisition and bilingual education, little is known about the role of language in the formation of identity by adolescent immigrants in the language classroom. More specifically, this study aims to investigate the use of code-switching by immigrant and refugee students learning Swedish and English in a high school preparatory program. Furthermore, this study investigates the relationship between students’ and teachers’ attitudes towards code-switching and language as a resource, and theories on language as a marker of identity. Quantitative collection of data and qualitative interviews reveal tensions between the ways in which teachers and students relate to code-switching and bilingualism. This study concludes that language in general, and code-switching in particular, can be used by students as a marker of identity. It further concludes that teachers to some extent discourage the use of code-switching, and thereby undermine the students’ possibilities in forming multicultural identities.

    Röstens anatomi: läsningar av politik i Elin Wägners Silverforsen, Selma Lagerlöfs Löwensköldtrilogi och Klara Johansons Tidevarvskåserier2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to investigate the voice in Elin Wägner’s novel Silverforsen (1924), Selma Lagerlöf’s Löwensköld trilogy (1925–1928) and Klara Johanson’s causeries in the feminist weekly newspaper Tidevarvet 1923–1924, in relation to women’s suffrage. Swedish women were finally granted the right to vote in 1921. The female political voice arroused high expectations of societal change: the female body was supposed to provide a female perspective on politics. However, the connection between the body and the voice was imagined differently by different theorists of emancipation. Therefore, in order to pinpoint the functions of the voice, the functions of corporeality need examination as well. The readings of the novels and causeries by Wägner, Lagerlöf and Johanson reveal striking discrepancies in the functions of the voice in relation to corporeality.

    The examination of the functions of the voice includes an account of the genre, the mood and the narrator’s voice as well as the characters’ ability to speak and the workings of the voice in the societies established in Silverforsen, the Löwensköld trilogy and Johanson’s causeries. A central argument of the dissertation concerns Wägner’s, Lagerlöf’s and Johanson’s various constructions of identity. Identity proves to be of equal importance to legitimate political action. Though, while Wägner’s notion of identity is based primarily on sex and inspired by the voice of God, Lagerlöf complicates the criteria for identity, featuring nationality, family and social class as primary distinctions. Johanson, for her part, rejects the idea of a shared gender identity all together. She still emphasises the need for politics to voice identity, although identity in her account includes only one single person.

    Contemporary theories on gender by Ellen Key, Mathilde Vaerting, Rosa Mayreder, Otto Weininger, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Alexandra Kollontay and Olive Schreiner form a context for the relations between voice, corporeality and emancipation developed by the novels and causeries. The readings of the literary texts are also, in their turn, intended to shed light on the theories of emancipation. This study proposes a new metatheoretical model instead of the heavily criticized distinction between essentialism and constructivism, by focusing the relation between corporeality and meaning, using the rhetorical tropes to analyse these relations. The tropological model may specify the body of the early twentieth century identity politics.

    Predikativens funktion i svenskan: om adjektiv som subjektiva predikativ1980Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The presentworkis a study within a framework of functional grammar, by which is understood a grammar that aims not only at describing variations in syntactic form, but also at identifying their communicative function. The scope of the study is limited to adjectives as predicate complements to subjects. The analysis is based on excerpts from twenty Swedish novels by different authors, and also on some spoken material. Predicate complements can occur with different types of verbs and have, broadly speaking, four possible positions in the sentence: final, middle, initial and extra-posed after the sentence. The final position in the sentence is used for predicate complements that are non-omissible, i.e. are non-omissible in order for the sentence to remain in the same context. In this position, the predicate complement is most clearly rhematic, providing information important to the communicative development of the text. The middle position is used for the omissible predicate complements, i.e. if the predicate complement is deleted, the sentence can still remain in it* s context. The initial position is occupied by predicate complements that provide inferred information. These are mostly thematic. Predicate complements in the final position outside the sentence are more independent, almost of sentence status. Variations in word-order thus affect the information structure of the sentence. These functional rules governing the placement of the predicate complements in a Swedish sentence are also valid for adverbs of manner. In Swedish, these two categories are very close in certain cases where they appear to be interchangeable.The study also shows that sentences comprising copula+predicate complement and sentences comprising verbs of the type l^igga (lie)+predicate complement partly have different functions and occur in different contexts. This functional difference can be correlated with various differences in syntactic behaviour. Verbs of the type Z-i^a+predicate complement often form a semantic unit, in which both the verb and the adjective have a reduced lexical meaning. In this unit the adjective carries the greater information value. Such units are broken by the insertion of the words där/här (there/ here). In these cases, the verb and the adjective no longer constitute a semantic unit and they regain their full lexical meaning. The sentence then has another information structure in which the information value of the verb and the adjective are equally great. Such sentences summarize and/or describe states of affairs;, they do not develope the narrative further.In a study of the function of syntactic variants, analyzing predicate complements to verbs other than copula verbs as reduced sentences is found not to be useful. Paraphrasing predicate complements by full clauses is not meaning preserving: the predicate complement receives greater emphasis and the paraphrase has other presuppositions.

    Magi, makt och mytologi: Beskrivningen av samiska personer i fornvästnordisk litteratur2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master’s degree essays aim was to analyse and to compare the descriptions of Sami people in three different types of sagas: Legendary Sagas, Sagas of Icelanders and Kings’ sagas. For this contribution, four Legendary Sagas, two Sagas of Icelanders and two Kings’ sagas were examined. The working hypothesis was, that sagas that were written closer to the narrative time were to be more realistic than episodes in sagas that were written significantly later. The results of the analysis of these sagas indicate that there are no significant differences between the different types of sagas and that the presentation of Sami people in these sagas is more affected by the writers worldview and intentions than the time they were written.

    Daemon Hailed and Interpellated: Accepting One's Nature in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis discusses how Philip Pullman’s trilogy His Dark Materials can be interpreted using Louis Althusser’s concept of ideology. The dæmon is a distinct feature of the world of His Dark Materials and one that is of central importance to the narrative. The dæmon’s shape, which is in the form of an animal, has a profound effect on the lives of characters. The narrative presents this shape as a representation of the inner nature of each character. However, a closer look reveals that this shape is also strongly correlated to each character’s class. Althusser’s theories on ideology, hailing, and interpellation are here used to explain how the dæmon’s shape comes to be determined by the character’s class (is hailed and interpellated as a subject into ideology) and to show that the correlation between class and shape begins even before the dæmon’s shape becomes permanent. The thesis also aims to prove that the ideology presented in the narrative functions to make each character accept the shape his or her dæmon has settled into and to suggest some possible consequences of this, such as the confirmation and reaffirmation of the rigid class structures, which creates a society that is not defined by choice despite nature but by absence of choice because of class.

    Cognitively Motivated Meanings for Idioms: The Metaphorical and Metonymical Structures of two Semantically Equivalent but Structurally Different Idioms in English and Swedish2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses the similarities and differences of the cognitive structures of the English-Swedish idiom pair to step into someone’s shoes and att axla någons mantel (to shoulder someone’s mantle [lit.]) in order to investigate possible conceptual or embodied motivations for their meanings. Using dictionaries and corpora to support all findings, the conceptual nature and intended meaning of each idiom were closely analysed and compared. The investigation shows metaphorical, metonymical and embodied structures which might possibly explain why these two idioms mean the same thing as a whole even though they are lexically different from each other. The results indicate that conceptual and embodied mechanisms have motivated the meanings of the idioms, thus suggesting that idiom comprehension in general as well as second language learning would greatly benefit from a more cognitive approach.

    What Do Place-Names Tell about non-Human Beings among Canadian Inuit?2017In: Journal of Northern Studies, ISSN 1654-5915, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 11-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Typologies have been proposed to organise Inuit placenames in several categories based on the meaning of and glosses on the names. One possible category gathers those toponyms that are related to beings that are neither human nor animal (“other-than-animal non-human beings”). In Nunavut and Nunavik (Canadian Eastern Arctic), this category is used quantitatively to name an almost insignificant number of sites. On the other hand, however, such particular place-names are to be found all over the lands inhabited by Inuit, witnessing the “other” nature of this space by comparison to the space commonly frequented by people and animals.

    El tiempo entre medios: Un análisis de la adaptación de la novela El tiempo entre costuras a la serie televisiva2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här uppsatsen görs en analys baserad på adaptationsteori av boken och serien med samma namn nämligen El tiempo entre costuras. Genom att använda funktioner inom adaptationsteorin analyseras materialet med målet att svara på frågorna hur den formella strukturen av boken och serien skiljer sig åt, hur några av huvudpersonerna har anpassats från boken till serien, om några exakta fraser från boken kan återhittas i serien samt hur två olika scener från boken har adapterats i serien. Analysen visar t.ex. att den generella strukturen på boken och serien inte är den samma samt att de kardinalfunktioner som hittats i boken också återfinns i serien och generellt sett har adaptationen från boken till serien skett i enlighet med teorin.

    Autofiktionens estetik: En undersökning av exemplen Stig Larsson, Marcus Birro och Karl Ove Knausgård2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Autofiktion är ett omdiskuterat genrebegrepp som fått ökad aktualitet i Sverige under de senaste decennierna genom en rad verk som positionerat sig på gränsen mellan verklighet och fiktion. Med denna uppsats vill jag lyfta fram tre av dessa verk, nämligen Karl Ove Knausgårds Min kamp (2009), Stig Larssons När det känns att det håller på ta slut (2012) och Marcus Birros Släng alla kartor (2012). Syftet är att undersöka texternas litterära tekniker och romantiska idéinnehåll för att urskilja en autofiktionens estetik. Det jag kommer fram till genom mina analyser är att texterna ger uttryck för en antilitterär estetik som styr läsaren mot en självbiografisk läsning. Detta åstadkommer författarna dels genom det självbiografiska anslaget och den strikta subjektiviteten, dels genom inslag av metareflektion och självkritik från berättarjagen som uppenbarar texten som en fortlöpande arbetsprocess. Författarna kringgår litterära konventioner genom ett öppet och tentativt skrivande som inte eftersträvar det formfulländade. De förhåller sig till det låga på ett skrivtekniskt plan genom inslag av talspråklighet och genom att ge illusionen av en konstlös komposition. Även innehållsligt får det låga utrymme i form av berättarjagens bekännelser vad gäller deras destruktiva karaktärsdrag eller tveksamma moraliska handlingar. Berättarjagens destruktiva läggning och deras tendens att framhålla konsten som överordnad livet visar på det romantiska arv som går att spåra i texternas idéinnehåll. I texterna framställs berättarjagen som begåvade men motarbetade outsiders, som bara kan närma sig livet genom att skriva det.

    En postmodern litteraturdidaktik?: En undersökning av Hjalmar Söderbergs Doktor Glas och dess litterära ekon i skolan2011Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Hjalmar Söderberg är en svensk författare vars verk i allra högsta grad lever kvar i våra dagar, vilket visar sig i de mångtaliga omtolkningar på hans romaner som uppkommit under 2000-talet. Med detta arbete vill jag dels analysera Hjalmar Söderbergs mest uppmärksammande roman Doktor Glas (1905), dels utveckla en didaktisering av de sentida pastischer som sprungit ur verket och belysa pastischernas postmoderna tendenser.

    Mitt syfte är också att undersöka hur dagens gymnasielärare ser på användandet av Hjalmar Söderbergs texter i sin undervisning. I arbetet intervjuar jag sex yrkesverksamma svensklärare som pekar på olika förtjänster med att använda sig av Söderbergs texter i elevsammanhang, däribland språket, stockholmsskildringen, de etiska och moraliska frågeställningarna som tas upp i texterna samt Söderbergs texter som förmedlare av ett svenskt kulturarv.

    Därutöver har jag själv gått ut i skolan och provat min didaktisering av de sentida omtolkningarna av Söderbergs Doktor Glas med en elevgrupp. Eleverna har sedermera fått besvara en skriftlig uppgift om pastischerna samt en utvärderande enkät om hur de upplevde mitt lektionsmoment. Utifrån detta diskuterar jag hur och varför Söderbergs texter kan ha en plats i skolundervisningen samt vilka förtjänster det finns med att undervisa om postmodernistisk litteratur i skolan.

    Resultatet från lärarintervjuerna och elevenkäterna för mitt resonemang in på hur vissa elever kan ha svårigheter att förstå äldre texter och forna tiders moralsyn, men också nyttan av att utmana sina egna perspektiv och sin egen tids tankesätt. Med min ansats om en postmodern litteraturdidaktik i åtanke diskuterar jag undervisningsformens problem, men också dess möjligheter: att utveckla en historisk förståelse för litteratur och att klargöra villkoren för konstnärligt skapande, vilket i förlängningen kan gagna den egna kreativiteten.

    ”Det här är ju dött tåg liksom…”: en studie av metaforer för ROMANTISK KÄRLEK i talad svenska2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the metaphorization of ROMANTIC LOVE in spoken Swedish. The study is based on 4 semi-structured focus group conversations with participants in two age groups; 24–33 and 50–54. A Swedish short film and questions related to the film were used as stimuli for the conversations. Research questions asked are 1) How is the concept of ROMANTIC LOVE metaphorized in the recorded group conversations? 2) How does the metaphorization vary between the conversations? and 3) What cultural model for ROMANTIC LOVE in the conversations can be reconstructed based on identified metaphorizations? The study is situated within Cognitive Linguistics and the framework of Conceptual Metaphor Theory and a Discourse Dynamics Approach to Metaphor. Consequently, metaphor is seen as a cognitive, linguistic, socio-cultural and discursive phenomenon, where metaphorization is a dynamic process that develops, adapts and flows within the conversations and between the participants. Accordingly, the identified metaphorizations are considered to be influenced by the speakers and their embodied experiences, their embodied cognition, the discourse event, and socio-cultural aspects of metaphorization. The focus of the present study, ROMANTIC LOVE, is considered as a dynamic concept based on philosophical, feminist, psychological and metaphorical research. Metaphors are identified through a discourse dynamic version of MIP and MIPVU.

    From the analyses, 6 systematic metaphors are proposed, where ROMANTIC LOVE is metaphorized as a PHYSICAL OBJECT (incl. as a POSSESSION and as a LIVING ORGANISM), as a CONTAINER (incl. CONSTRUCTION and BODY as a CONTAINER), as TRAVELLING together (with primary focus on TRAVELLING together rather than SOURCE or TARGET), as a UNITY (with focus on how a UNITY is ESTABLISHED, MAINTAINED and DISSOLVED, ideally by two COMPATIBLE partners), as a PHYSICAL and NATURAL FORCE and as a DISEASE (where LOVE can affect a person’s perception and sanity). In addition, ROMANTIC LOVE is, in a small number of expressions, metaphorized as a CRIME, as a PHYSICAL CONFLICT and as a GAME. The variation in metaphorization is small between the conversations. Some metaphorizations seem to be related to the age of the participants. ROMANTIC LOVE ismoreover something people usually have influence over and in some ways can control. In total, 780 metaphorical expressions and 9 source domains are identified. Departing from the interplay betweenmetaphorization and culture, a cultural model for ROMANTIC LOVE is reconstructed, where a multifaceted, embodied and experiential concept of ROMANTIC LOVE emerges.

    Den objudne gästen: hur Maeterlinck introducerades och mottogs i Sverige intill 19031979Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Boström, T. 1979. Den objudne gästen. HurMaeterlinckintroducerades och mottogs i Sverige intill 1903. The Intruder. How Maeter1 inck1 s work became known and was received in Sweden up to I9O3. With a Summary in French. ISBN 91-7174-038-4. 230 pp.The aim of the thesis is to show how Maurice Maeter1 i nek 1 s work became known i n Sweden and how it was received up to 1903. This examination is placed in relation to important facts concerning the man himself, his aesthetic theory, his literary production in general and the background of Belgium and France. From these countries his literary path is traced to Sweden through Denmark, Norway and Finland. Attention is concentrated on Maeterlinck's reception by the Scandi nav.i an pub 1 i c and on which of his works were translated and published or introduced by means of the stage. In this connection the motives and principles for staging The Intruder and Pelléas and Mé1 isande are studied. Up to 1892 Scandinavian critics regarded Maeterlinck's works as being essentially realistic. Later there was a change and the critics then began to regard and interpret him as a symbolist. On the whole it cannot be said that Maeter1 i nek was justly performed or understood, which probably helped to delay interest in him and in symbolism in general. Opponents of conventional Swedish stage procedure sometimes used Maeterlinck as a positive argument for change,but on the whole the spiritual climate remained unfavourable for the author. Not until 1902 did Maeterlinck become a recognised master owing to two Swedish translations of the internationally successful Life of the Bees, which received cri t i cal acci aim and was the start of his breakthrough in Sweden. The following year Monna Vanna was a similar success on the Swedi s h s tage. The traditions in Swedish cultural life which had meant that Maeterlinck's symbolist works were not accepted instead ensured his success now that he had abandoned symbolism.

    Hur fyra gymnasielärare möter ideal och verklighet: En jämförelse mellan främmandespråksundervisning i Sverige och Australien2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This degree project shows how four language teachers teach foreign languages with focus oncommunicative competence, and how their vision of teaching correspond to their reality in the classroom. How do they motivate the students in class and are the conditions good enough tohelp the teachers reach the national goals? A teacher’s vision is formed by his or her education and experiences. However, there are a number of factors which can help or hinder a teacher to reach his or her ideal teaching. Among these factors are the curriculum, the preknowledgeof the students and available technical resources. The method used in this thesis is qualitative interviews with two Australian and two Swedish foreign language teachers. This method was chosen in order to give the interviewees the possibility to speak more freely about their vision compared to their reality. The results show that there are more similarities than differences between Sweden and Australia when we look at the teachers’ ideals. There are anumber of factors why the teachers do not reach their ideals. The findings show that it is necessary with adequate teacher training to uphold qualitative language teaching corresponding to continuously changing curriculums. Moreover, the curriculum mentions communicative language teaching more and more today, but the teachers experience difficulties when teaching and evaluating communicative competence. Another important issue is the lack of money and time for starting and maintaining international exchanges.

    Kulturelle Lexika und metaphorische Profile: zu einer semantisch-kognitiven Theorie der Protosem- und Konzemstrukturen lexikalisierter Konzepte der Arbeitswelt1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on current results produced in modern cognitive linguistics this study examines linguistic evidence derived from the experiential field ,labor4 in German and Swedish in order to formulate a theory which more closely describes the relationship between semantic and conceptual structure in lexical concepts. The author maintains that semantic information can be seen as the content of the culture which it reflects and that semantic content is represented in culture specific modes. On the basis of frequency lists a chronologically organized cultural lexicon is presented for each language and culture area. The aim of the cultural lexicon is to point out central fields of concern in the two examined language communities at different times. The second part of the investigation deals with the conceptual structure in two culturally relevant types, labor and unemployment, of the cultural lexicon. In accordance with modern relativist views it is argued that linguistic form must be seen as a result of cultural embodiment and that modes of representation in the human mind must also show traces of this embodiment. It is shown that conceptual (and semantic) structures not only reinforce views of the world, but also play a central role in compatibility restrictions on the performance level. The author suggests that semantic and conceptual structures in lexical concepts are distributed in a metaphorical profile specific to each lexical concept and held together on its various levels by so called protosemes and concernes.

    Är tydlig svenska lättläst?: En jämförande studie av två sätt att bearbeta text2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta examensarbete handlar om hur olika bearbetningssätt för text fungerar för sina målgrupper. Syftet med studien är att jämföra språkliga faktorer i textbearbetningar på Tydlig svenska och Lättläst, samt att undersöka hur dessa faktorer upplevs av läsare med funktionsnedsättningar. Undersökningen består av två delar: kvantitativ textanalys och kvalitativa intervjuer. Textanalysen syftar till att lyfta fram särskiljande textuella drag i två bearbetningar på Lättläst och Tydlig svenska. Dessa textfaktorer ligger sedan till grund för fem intervjuer med representanter för de funktionsnedsättningar som ingår i målgruppen samt en kontrollgrupp. De aktuella funktionsnedsättningarna är lindrig utvecklingsstörning, Aspergers syndrom och barndomsdövhet. Resultaten från textanalysen visar att skillnaderna är större mellan själva bearbetningarna än mellan texttypernas riktlinjer. Bearbetningarna skiljer sig bland annat åt i fråga om ordföljd, meningslängd och textbindning. Intervjuresultaten visar på att målgruppen är mycket heterogen, och att det är svårt att konkret styrka texttypernas riktlinjer utifrån målgruppens läsupplevelse. Slutsatsen blir att det är viktigare att skribenten förstår sin målgrupp än att hon strikt följer en uppsättning riktlinjer.

    Is what is taken for critique today genuinely self-questioning or merely the confirmation of the moral consensus? In the neoliberal culture of the audit, has critique been deprived of its role as check on ideology? And does preference for impact-oriented research produce political compliance rather than independent critical thought?

    Abstract [en]

    The time-space of the archive: on the shadow texts of Sara Lidman

     

    As a place for scientific research the archive may be stationary or mobile – or even a virtual site. Alongside its function as a source for empirical study, the archive holds several other crucial qualities which highlight the complexity of all epistemological endeavour, including its metaphorical or symbolical aspects. Thus, ”archive” or ”archival” has been frequently used keywords in recent debate and research, from feminist theory to art theory. Jacques Derrida’s striking metaphor of ”mal d’archive” – archive fever – has been followed by several more or less related thought figures, such as Sara Ahmed’s image of  ”the Unhappy Archives of Feminist Theory” och Ann Cvetkovich’ ”Archive of Feelings” has been most influential.

        However, among archives, an author’s archive always holds an exceptional position, located as it is on the treshold between private, personal and public. Remaining objects, imprints of intimate articulations of emotions in diaries and letters are systematized side by side, often in chronological order, with manuscripts, drafts, articles etc. As such, an author’s diary never tells just one story – but shelters the potential of many, written and unwritten; manifest or hidden. In this way an author’s archive can be said to form a ”time-space” of its own, where the material layerings of memories, narrative patterns and lived experiences which both resists and challenges archival ordering principles.

       Taking its departure from the archive of Swedish novelist Sara Lidman (1923-2004), the aim of this article is to reflect on the encounter between the researcher and the author in an archival context. The methodological and stylistic approach is experimental, making use of personal diary writing as a means to enfold the tactile and sensual aspects of the ”archival experience”. The article thus wants to argue that archival research must be recognized as an emotional as well as epistemological and intellectual practice.
