    Resande i arkitektur: John Åkerlunds liv och verk2005Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis describes John Åkerlund (1884-1961) as a prominent architect among all those who were active in Sweden in the first half of the 20th century. The aim is to shed light on an extensive and partly unique professional achievement, somewhat overshadowed by those who have so far been paid more attention. The chief source has been the architect’s complete archive from the start of his office in 1909 to the time of John Åkerlund’s decease. The material was donated in 1997 to the Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm. The questions mainly concern Åkerlund’s role among customers and colleagues, his sources of inspiration, and his style and position in the context of the Swedish history of architecture.

    The thesis is divided into three main sections. The first deals with Åkerlund’s life. Its point of departure is his studies of electrical engineering in his hometown Borås. Via a decisive period in Dalarna his transition to the architects’ profession is described, with trainee work with the architects Jacob Gate and Torben Grut. His broad activities as manager of his architect office and an official in the National Agency for Education are described,as well as his activities in the Society for the Care of Local Arts, Crafts and History’, in addition to which he also worked as a course director and writer.

    The second main section describes Åkerlund’s architectural production, which was widely spread as regards both contents and geography, to which the book’s title alludes. His work and projects are divided into categories in five chapters. They deal with schools with emphasis on folk high schools and Åkerlund’s nine church rooms, with for example Edefors Church in Harads, North Bothnia. I further describe Åkerlund’s work for the Swedish Touring Club with stations from Abisko in Lappland to Grövelsjön in Dalarna and his work with industrial buildings, above all for Boliden AB. The last part of this section sheds light on other projects, for example dwellings and public buildings such as public baths, but also furniture and interior fittings.

    The third and concluding main section is a discussion and summary of the contents starting out from the initial questions. Åkerlund is placed in the context of his period and content. A list of projects is attached, comprising all the works that are now known from the start of the office to the architect’s decease. It is divided into fifteen categories and within these presented in chronological order.

    A Different Kind of Story Tracing the Histories and Cultural Marks of Pirate Copied Film2016Ingår i: Tecnoscienza: Italian Journal of Science & Technology Studies, ISSN 2038-3460, E-ISSN 2038-3460, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 87-108Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Pirate copied objects are fiery artifacts that have caused much anxiety and debate. This article explores the cultural biographies of one particular type of such objects; digital pirate copied films. More specifically, it traces two neglected aspects of such object's life histories: their entanglement in systems of standardization and quality control, and the ways in which new types of aesthetics and narratives are inscribed (or added to) pirated audiovisual content. Paying close attention to the layered and multifaceted dimensions of digital pirate copied film, the paper approaches the act of pirate copying as a form of transfiguration, and suggests that pirated objects are much more than plain replications. By housing a multiplicity of material identities and by carrying (and being surrounded by) alternative narratives of production, the article argues that these objects intervene, disorient, and disrupt the power dynamics of cinematic circulation and ultimately serve to queer commodity spheres.

    Close Reading Big Data: The Echo Nest and the Production of (Rotten) Music Metadata2016Ingår i: First Monday, ISSN 1396-0466, E-ISSN 1396-0466, Vol. 21, nr 7Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital music distribution is increasingly powered by automated mechanisms that continuously capture, sort and analyze large amounts of Web-based data. This paper traces the historical development of music metadata management and its ties to the growing of the field of ‘big data’ knowledge production. In particular, it explores the data catching mechanisms enabled by the Spotify-owned company The Echo Nest, and provides a close reading of parts of the company’s collection and analysis of data regarding musicians. Doing so, it reveals evidence of the ways in which trivial, random, and unintentional data enters into the data steams that power today’s digital music distribution. The presence of such curious data needs to be understood as a central part of contemporary algorithmic knowledge production, and calls for a need to re-conceptualize both (digital) musical artifacts and (digital) musical expertize.

    FRM AIRCON: What can be done to improve the personal protective equipment for auto body painters?2016Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The professional auto body painter works in an extreme environment, where the painter faces constant movement, ever-changing working situations and pressure to deliver a flawless paint job: the paint booth. The temperature in the paint booth is high, often around 30˚ Celsius. The floor is very hard, made of metal grid or concrete, and the painter usually has to move around a lot, at least 9 km per day. For this project I chose to focus on the painter’s work footwear as a major part of the personal protective equipment. My goal is to create a new standard in working shoes, specifically made for this environment and context. A comfortable shoe that could withstand heat, paint dust and wear. A shoe that is made for its users: the FRM AIRCON.

    Musikteori för barn i tidiga åldrar: en kvalitativ studie om musiklärares respektive läromedels syn på musikteori i musikundervisningen för grundskolans år 1-52009Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats/Examensarbete
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna studie har jag undersökt hur musiklärare och läromedel i musik ser på musikteorin i undervisningen för elever i år 1-5. Jag har granskat läromedel och intervjuat lärare för att ta reda på vilka kunskaper de anser att vi bör ge eleverna i musikteori, men även i vilket syfte och med vilka metoder det ska ske. I samband med intervjuerna har musiklärarna gett mig synpunkter på de läromedel jag granskat.

    Jag har förstått att de intervjuade musiklärarna anser att det är väsentligt att ge eleverna kunskaper i musikteori, men att den inte får ta överhanden och dominera undervisningen. Musik, tycker musiklärarna, är ett ämne där eleverna framförallt ska ges tillfällen att skapa och musicera. Gällande läromedlen har jag upptäckt att de skriver om en långt mer avancerad musikteori än vad lärarna lär ut.

    Under intervjuerna betonade samtliga lärare vikten av att omsätta teoretiska kunskaper i praktiskt musicerande. I kontrast mot detta ger endast ett av tre läromedel idéer på praktiska tillämpningssätt.

    Abstract [en]

    The great advancements in technology are transforming cars into the next digital frontier, redefining people’s lifestyle around mobility. The thesis intended to push further on this trend, exploring new interaction paradigms and creating delightful experiences in future self-driving vehicles. With a cross-discipline scope, the formula is to blend digital information into physical form and material, blurring the boundary between the car’s interior and interface. As the conclusion, I learned that a constant harmony between virtual and physical world is the key for designers to create natural and intuitive experiences with technology.

    The final result is an autonomous interior concept with multi-sensory user experiences. The core interface, as the physical manifestation of the car’s artificial intelligence, interact with users emotionally, offering its amazing capability in assistance. The in-car environment is evolved with sensors and displays, providing intuitive access to dedicated functions and immersive content.

    Talking to the Future - about Radioactivity: Understanding Radioactivity Through Everyday Product Interactions2015Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Nuclear waste remains radioactive for thousands of years. Burying it underground in an enormous repository, called Onkalo, surrounded and secured by solid rock is the long-term solution Finnish authorities implement right now. Once the repository is filled up, it will be locked up forever and never opened again. At the same time three new nuclear power plants are built.

    Out of Sight, out of Mind?

    Ultimately, this raises questions: Can this be the solution for final disposal of nuclear waste? How do we understand a problem clearly exceeding our capabilities as human beings? How do we deal with the dilemmas of uncertainty, invisibility, time, demand, possible contamination, and our individual responsibility as human beings?

    Understanding Through Interaction

    I designed three everyday products, a lamp, a toy for children, and a pregnancy test, that afford a familiar everyday action on one hand, while exposing a dilemma related to Onkalo on the other. In doing so, the artifacts make those dilemma tangible and facilitate understanding and critical thinking. Sharing a personal experience, the users can engage in a personal discourse around nuclear waste actively, opposing the distant and highly politicalised discourse spread by the media.

    Myriad: an Open-ended Design Project2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    A fascination for electronics development platforms was the starting point for this project. Brought forward from open source initiatives, these exist of modular hardware toolkits and software. This modularity allows people to use them in different configurations to support a variety of contexts and purposes. In this way it enables them to bring just about any idea to life.

    There is an emerging trend on the web, where people modify or hack into products, trying to change or extends their products to fit their needs. As technology is becoming cheaper and embedded in everyday products, it allows products to become more flexible, and be more sensitive towards these trends.

    My project has been an investigation in developing a method for design, which promotes modular product systems, rather than closed, fixed products. Open-ended design is an approach which supports an exploration space for end-users. Focused on laymen users, allows them to investigate what functionality and behaviour is needed for their own interests and niche purposes. The open-ended design framework was used to design Myriad: a flexible, modular camera system to complement GoPro cameras. Myriad exists of a growing library of modules, sensors and a mobile app which combined create unique camera functionality and behaviours.

    The (female) situated musical body: aspects of caring2019Ingår i: Per Musi, ISSN 1517-7599, E-ISSN 2317-6377, nr 39, s. 1-16, artikel-id e193905Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point for the study presented in this article is constituted by experiences of using Simone de Beauvoir’s philosophy and Iris Marion Young theories aiming to describe and understand the becoming of musical women in Swedish schools. Earlier research conducted outside the area of music shows that Beauvoir’s theories can help to explain – and provide means of change for – situations where there is a risk that traditional gender roles will be conserved. A majority of gender studies in the field of music education are based on the performativity theory of Judith Butler. In comparison, de Beauvoir states that repetitions and habits are stratified in the body as experiences, and that human beings are able to make choices in a situation. The aim of the study is to explore how caring is nurtured among girls in Swedish music educational settings. Material generated through two phenomenological studies conducted within specialist music programs in lower respectively higher secondary education in Sweden, constituted the empirical base for conducting re-analysis. This re-analysis followed a hermeneutical phenomenological analytical model. Examples of how caring seemed to be nurtured among girls in music education appeared at different levels and in different situations. It concerns actions made by the girls aiming to make the social and musical setting function in agreed upon ways, namely in the form of taking initiatives, filling “gaps”, and being flexible. Finally we reflect upon causes and changes in relation to actions that seem to establish and maintain female students as immanent, and non-able to run their own projects.

    The Haptic Drive: Haptic feedback for car interfaces2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    With the use of touch-screen enabled interfaces, came a new era for in-car interactions. Sadly, no technology comes without drawbacks, in this case the demand of visual attention, which is desperately needed to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The main motivation for this project is finding a way to bring the sense of touch back to interfaces while retaining the flexibility that touch-screens have introduced.

    The collaborating partner for this project was Icon Incar, who also supported it in many ways. The research phase of this project has been carried out at the company HQ in Berlin. This included feedback sessions at the company, reading research papers on haptics and automotive interfaces, talking to experts in the field of haptics and the facilitation of a workshop. The research helped to confirm the initial problem statement and helped to form ideas in the ideation stage, of which there were many.

    Those ideas were a mixture of technologies and sensing abilities that went far beyond the initial problem statement in order keep a brother scope. There were many feedback session, with different people, which were necessary to weed out the bad ideas and keep the viable ones for testing. While building and testing the first prototypes, there was simultaneously a quest going on to find a solution for fully actuated and shape shifting displays, something that has not been done before. While coming up with dozens of possible technical solutions, the fact was overlooked that none of them would provide a good experience (except some far fetched futuristic granular systems). As it turns out, actuating the display itself would not cause any problems, but manipulating the actuation would, because it would not give the best experience. Manipulating actuated button would work and feel just fine, but sliders and knobs - whenever the finger has to move over a surface - would feel unnatural. After more analysis, I found that there is not one technology yet, that could stimulate all the different properties a human being can feel with the sense of touch. Therefor, there have to be many technologies working together to provide the best possible experience.

    More than a dozen haptic prototypes have been built and tested to help the users perform various tasks blindly. Those ranged from controlling the climate, scrolling throughout lists, identifying functions and getting feedback for selected options. Many of the ideas did not work out as expected and were discontinued after the haptic testing, which was a vital part of the process. The working ideas were then combined into a larger concept.

    To simplify the interface even more, a general list of features was thoroughly studied so that functions could be simplified, combined or discarded. Drivers and car dealers have been interviewed to understand what the most commonly used functions are.

    The analysis of existing interfaces has shown that there is currently only one function and type of information provided at any time. This means that the driver can not see directions while changing the music, for example. The concept layout will, therefore, provide information about all the basic functions (climate control, navigation, music and phone) where one function shows all information and others only the basics. To avoid visual clutter and ensure quick recognition, graphic elements have been distilled to their essential forms while still retaining a sense of visual pleasure.

    To identify, differentiate between and set climate control, the knob for heating would change its temperature, the ventilation knob blow air at the set speed and the air flow direction knob would tilt in the set direction. While the volume knob would react to the beat of the music. With the help of microfluidics, active buttons would pop out of the screen and can be identified by their shapes. When activating those shape shifting buttons, the driver would feel feedback, similar to the one of real buttons, provided by an actuator at the back of the display.

    The combination of all listed solutions would provide simpler interactions and help the drivers to keep their focus on the road. This would in turn make driving a better and safer experience.

    Dancing virtue: educational aspects in Queen Christina’s court ballets2018Ingår i: Virtue Ethics and Education from Late Antiquity to the Eighteenth Century / [ed] Andreas Hellerstedt, Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 2018, 1, s. 113-134Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Stefano Fogelberg Rota investigates the court ballet’s pedagogic character during the reign of Queen Christina. French ballet de cour was introduced to Sweden in 1638 as part of a larger effort to raise the cultural standing of the state. Ballet became a privileged medium for conveying the Queen’s political decisions and ambitions. These political messages were constantly communicated through the use of examples, portrayed as ideals of virtue. Virtue was used by Christina to shape an ideal image of her rule. Fogelberg Rota unveils both the underlying purposes of the representations and the rhetorical strategies employed. Finally, he examines the career of some of the noblemen dancing in order to show the importance of these performances for the advancement at court of Christina’s young aristocratic favourites.

    Deconstructing Oedipus: Woody Allen's Mighty Aphrodite and the classical tradition2017Ingår i: The reception of ancient virtues and vices in modern popular culture: beauty, bravery, blood and glory / [ed] Eran Almagor and Lisa Maurice, Leiden and Boston: Brill Academic Publishers, 2017, 11, s. 167-186Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter examines the philosophical dichotomy between Hellenism and Hebraism in order to show how Mighty Aphrodite may be seen as a contemporary example of merging cultural identities, previously thought in contradiction to one another. Allen's reiteration of Oedipal references may be read as a dismantling of Classical Hellenic culture and a rearrangement intended for a 21st century New York setting. Allen constructs a fictional tragic space that is embedded in the main plot and that manifests itself in the form of tragic dramaturgy and scenic conventions.

    Against this backdrop, Allen's overall use of classical tradition may be considered self-referential: it points out to the director's own understanding of classical culture as a twenty first century Jewish New York film director. Ancient cultural forms mingle with contemporary film and mirror 'the two way relationship between the source text or culture and the new work and receiving elements'. Abort of their original context of antiquity, ritual, drama and myth, tragedy and the very figure of Oedipus are (paradoxically) cinematically deconstructed as humorous, and are granted a place within contemporaneity, finding a specific leeway of expression in classical Hollywood film narratives. The film is a commentary on the potentials of reinstating dominant structures of classical reception per se: Oedipus may become Anti-Oedipus, tragedy may turn into comedy and binary structures such as Hellenism and Hebraism may mingle together in perfect harmony.

    Queer heroes and action heroines: gender and sexuality in Spartacus2015Ingår i: Spartacus in the television arena: essays on the Starz Series / [ed] Michael G. Cornelius, Jefferson, North Carolina: McFarland, 2015, s. 1-220Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Spartacus, the Thracian gladiator turned rebel leader, endures as a near-mythic hero who fought for the oppressed against a Roman oligarchy built on the backs of slave labor. The image of Spartacus as a noble if doomed avenger is familiar and his story has been retold through history as a cautionary tale about social injustice.The television series Spartacus takes a different view, with a violent depiction of the man and his times and a focus on the archetype of the gladiator—powerful, courageous and righteous. This collection of new essays studies the series as an exploration of masculinity.In the world of Spartacus, men jockey for social position, question the nature of their lives, examine their relationships with women and with each other, and explore their roles in society and the universe. The series also offers a compelling study of the composite nature of historical narrative in television and film, where key facts from original sources are interwoven with period embellishments, presenting audiences with a history and a fiction whose lines remain blurred by a distant yet all-too-familiar past.

    Redefining Gender in Sword and Sandal: The New Action Heroine in Spartacus (2010-13)2015Ingår i: The Journal of popular film and television, ISSN 0195-6051, E-ISSN 1930-6458, Vol. 43, nr 1, s. 39-49Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: Spartacus (2010-13), although belonging to a genre comprised primarily of male-centered narratives about gladiators, redefines the genre's definition of heroism. Female characters in the TV series evolve from objectified females to strong and brave action heroines, thus marking the evolution of the perception of ancient female sexuality in popular culture.

    Remixing Classics for the Screen: Woody Allen and the Classical Tradition2015Ingår i: Studia Oliveriana, ISSN 0562-2964, Vol. 1, s. 55-76Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Several films by Woody Allen (Interiors, Oedipus Wrecks, Match Point and Mighty Aphrodite) contain elements of classical tradition that have been neglected or oversimplified by film scholarship as references to the director’s personal engagement with psychoanalysis. Using Mighty Aphrodite (1995) as illustration, I argue that these films convey the expression of contemporary social issues through a complex and multi-layered reception of classical culture that goes beyond pure psychoanalysis. In Mighty Aphrodite, specifically, Allen deploys the strict formalism of tragedy and the myth of Oedipus as film mechanisms for contemporary societal discourse. Via evaluation of film and narrative, I demonstrate that Allen’s classical reception is self-reflexive as it refers back to the very processes of performative arts. Furthermore, Allen utilizes the classical tradition as a form of expression in contemporary classical Hollywood narratives and creates a rich cultural experience for his audience; a cinematic treatise on cultural remix, dramatic formalism and classical reception per se.

    Abstract [en]

    Humanistic uses of digital technologies have opened up new ways to think about, communicate, and discuss historical research. The common use of digital tools to visually represent ancient cultures and sites, however, has also introduced new issues. For example, critics have argued that digital visualisations, largely synonymous with reconstruction in 3D models, often attempt to represent a photorealistic-artificial vision of the past, and may often prove to be a way to communicate history to a large(r) audience [Forte and Siliotti 1997]. Against this backdrop, this article will discuss precisely how technology may help immerse researchers into historically situated life, and radically advance historical research. Adding to related criticisms of ocularcentric traditions of knowledge production, we contribute to this stream of research by arguing that contemporary visual representations of the past often concentrate on visual representations and seemingly maintain antiquity as a sanitised historio-cultural ideal [Westin 2012] [Tziovas 2014]. More specifically, this article seeks to demonstrate the potential of digital humanities to move beyond mere representations on screen and to mobilize other senses (specifically sound) as a historically situated component for research. For this purpose, we focus on the abstract principles and overall methodology for a recreation of the experience of sounds in the Roman amphitheatre.

    Beyond humanities qua digital: Spatial and material development for digital research infrastructures2018Ingår i: Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, ISSN 2055-7671, E-ISSN 2055-768X, Vol. 33, nr 2, s. 264-278Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Universities around the world have increasingly turned to digital infrastructures as a way to revamp the arts and humanities. This article contributes a fresh understanding by examining the material development of HumlabX, a research laboratory for digital humanities at Umeå University, Sweden. Specifically, we approach the empirical case as a timeline of research funding, projects, events, and deliverables to examine how the research laboratory as an organizational and material space developed and evolved in relation to new technology investments. Based on our analysis, we argue that while digital research infrastructures can, indeed, stimulate innovation in and around research, aimed to produce new knowledge, digital technologies carry social and material implications that affect organizational processes. We show that while knowledge production processes at HumlabX were highly influenced by the infrastructural legacy of the past, they indeed directed scholars toward innovation. By discussing these implications in detail, we move beyond the debate of humanities qua digital, and demonstrate the need for scholars of digital humanities to engage in the development of policies for digital research infrastructures. Using a Swedish case study, we argue that research laboratories for the digital humanities must be scrutinized and should be fully exposed as socio-material organizations that develop, and should develop, over time. In particular, we stress the need to ensure that digital humanities laboratories are sustainable and open for redevelopment.

    Mending and Growing in Feminist Speculative Fabulations: Design’s Unfaithful Daughters2016Övrigt (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    This conversation seeks to consider design research practices around critical and speculative design which have been criticised for their lack of public engagement and awareness of their political and normative positions. In particular, we are interested in the ways in which feminist speculative fabulation offer alternative approaches through attention to core feminist arguments around corporeality, materiality, embodiment, affectivity and experientiality. Our conversation will imagine new ways of practicing design by examining relationships between speculative futures and reimaginings of the past; the role of a feminist perspective in problem-making and questioning; speculative design and fabulation as participatory practice; the role of practices around mending, growing, maintaining and repairing; and, the posthuman design and the anthropocene.

    Skönlitteratur i undervisningen: Ett gestaltande arbete i att skapa ett läromedel för årskurs 1-32013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var tvåfaldigt. Det ena var att ta reda på vilka argument som finns förarbete med skönlitteratur och öka kunskapen om hur lärare använder det i sin undervisning.Det andra var att göra ett didaktiskt försök att skapa ett skönlitterärt läromedel. Vi ökade vårkunskap om studiens ämnesområde genom läsning av litteratur samt kvalitativa intervjuermed fem olika lärare verksamma i årskurserna 1-3. Detta för att få en bild över huranvändningen av skönlitteratur kan se ut i skolan samt hur de olika lärarna ser påskönlitteratur och läromedel. I resultatet belystes vikten av estetiska läroprocesser och attundervisningen ska anpassas efter elevers olika förutsättningar och behov. Innehållet iundervisningen behöver bearbetas för att kunskapsutvecklingen ska främjas. Det framkomäven att valet av bok har stor betydelse i arbete med skönlitteratur. Böckers utformning,ämnesinnehåll och en eventuell tillhörande lärarhandledning är faktorer som påverkar valet.Intervjustudien visade att en användbar lärarhandledning kunde vara avgörande för om ettmaterial ansågs vara passande i undervisningen. Med utgångspunkt i detta gjorde vi ettdidaktiskt försök att skapa ett skönlitterärt läromedel. Det didaktiska försöket resulterade i enbok med tillhörande lärarhandledning som innehåller exempel på hur ämnesinnehållet kan bearbetas.

    Cultural cooperation between a regional government and idea-driven organisations: seven music projects applications2016Ingår i: Proceedings of the 18th International Seminar of the ISME Commission on Music Policy: Culture, Education, and Mass Media / [ed] Hung-Pai Chen, Patrick Schmidt, International Society for Music Education , 2016, s. 169-188Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the culture department of the regional government in Dalarna has earmarked some of the funding for non-formal education to finance grants for musical projects, which can be applied for by “idea driven organisations”. It is often music professionals that initiate these projects, backed by the organisation. Theoretically informed by Michel de Certeaus concepts of tactic and strategy (Certeau, 1984) this paper discusses how musicians and organisations position themselves and their projects in relation to government strategies when applying for these grants.

    Musical collaboration – or cooperation?: Exploring newspeak in Swedish arts policy2017Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent years have seen a process of regionalisation in Swedish culture and arts policy. This change goes under the name Kultursamverkansmodellen, which on the government’s webpage translates to “the cultural cooperation model” (Government Offices of Sweden 2015).

    The way samverkan is used in daily talk it should rather translate to collaboration – discussions, exchange of ideas and mutually beneficial activities. However, my material suggests elements of hierarchy in the system of cultural policy and funding where the term samverkan seem to signify a logic of consensus, in effect making it hard for cultural actors to challenge a system where certain music and art forms hold a hegemonic position.

    Drawing on Michel De Certeau’s concept of tactics and strategy (1984) and Ruth Finnegan’s pathways (Finnegan 1989), this paper uses a discourse logics approach (Glynos and Howarth 2007) to disseminate the term samverkan in multiple musicking contexts: in policy, by musicians, regional government officials and concert organisers, as well as in connection with other nodes such as “quality” and “projects”.

    The paper is part of the author’s on-going PhD project, which aims to shed light on how conditions for music making are constructed, protected and challenged by studying the intersection between governing and musical processes.

    Musiklandskap: musik och kulturpolitik i Dalarna2018Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, I study how conditions for music-making can be developed, maintained and challenged through government support processes in the Swedish region Dalarna. The research questions focus on the ways music, policy and governance relate to each other, what kinds of musicians and ways of making music are favored in these relations, and the agency and meaning of place. The study is made through participant observation of musical events, cultural policy meetings, and the everyday practice of cultural policy officials; interviews with musicians, organizers and cultural policy officials; cultural policy documents as well as musicians’ and organizers’ public documents such as concert posters and websites.

    The musical landscape of Dalarna is summarized as a complex web with pathways that reach far beyond the geographical borders of the region. The cultural cooperation model works as a hierarchy from center to periphery, from the national government, through agencies, regional government, musical institutions and organizers, musicians and audiences. We can analyze all these practices as being part of music, as musicking. But we could also describe them another way, where the practice of cultural policy is dependent on and conditioned by the musical practices it is set to govern. In this way, musicians are always in some way also creating policy.

    I discuss genre hierarchies and further argue that music can, or should, not always be motivated by its effects on regional development or its social impact, it also needs to be allowed to be unhealthy and unprofitable. When we support music, we should be aware that it can be a hobby as well as a business, a serious artistic endeavor as well as play. And more often than not, music is all of these things at the same time.

    Pathways of pop: Arts and educational policy, cultural industries and studieförbund2017Ingår i: Popular Music Studies Today: Abstracts for the conference of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, June 26–30, Kassel, Germany / [ed] Julia Merrill, Jan Hemming, 2017Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Through the Swedish voluntary education organisations called studieförbund bands get access to musical education, rehearsal space, gear and gigs. It’s a modest but long time funding without any demands on return. Studieförbund are considered to be one of the most important factors for the success of the Swedish music industry due to the educational role it plays for amateur musicians. As musicians gain experience they tend to “outgrow” the studieförbund. There are often no institutional aids to continue their progress, since arts policy regards pop genres to be commercial by default. Recently, former musicians and festival arrangers have developed regional coaching programs for pop bands, leaning on policies of “cultural and creative industries” instead of arts policies. Drawing on Michel De Certeaus concept of tactics and strategy (1984), as well as Ruth Finnegans pathways (1989), this paper discusses these efforts as tactical manoeuvres by music creators as they navigate regional spaces of education, arts policies and industry strategies.

    Vårt Ålidhem (Our Aalidhem)2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (konstnärlig kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Vårt Ålidhem (Our Ålidhem) is a project adressing the issue of women feeling unsafe at night in their own residential area, many even avoid going outside as a result of this fear. This is not a new problem and it exists in all cities of Sweden. There are some general parameters when looking for a solution, but in the end each city needs a specific one. This project deals with how Ålidhem, a million programme residential area in Umeå, could become a place in which all residents, regardless of gender, can feel safe. The proposal is a system of three parts: Vårt Ålidhem Lyser, The Check Points and Våran Kiosk.
