Abstract [sv]

Denna bok handlar om hur samhället Jannelund i Östra Värmland växte fram i slutet av 1800-talet och kom att bilda Jannelunds municipalsamhälle 1912. Utvecklingen ledde senare till bildandet av Degerfors landskommun, Degerfors municipalsamhälle, Degerfors köping och Degerfors kommun. Jannelund var som mest utvecklat under 1960-talet. Under 1970-talet skedde omfattande rivningar av bebyggelsen och området fick en annan karaktär. Denna utveckling och omvandlingsprocess lyfts fram i arbetet och diskuteras i ett långsiktigt tidsperspektiv. Arbetet innefattar också författarens egna upplevelser av Jannelund som uppväxtmiljö i form av olika minnesbilder av barndomens landskap. Författarens minnen från popbandet Ulf-Gerhards verksamhetsperiod 1964-67 redovisas också.

2016 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This publication is to be seen as my testament to human geography with a focus on my research. The publication consists of two parts: two paper presentations and a text that summarizes all my published research results together with a list of my publications.

An explanation of the paper presentations is necessary here. They have been in my desk drawer for a long time but have never been published. Now  when I am finishing my research career I would love to see them in print at last. Let us call them the expression of my last scientific ambition. They are unpolished versions directly from my heart.

The first paper is entitled “Complementary Aspects of Thoughts in Human Geography” and the second paper is entitled “Geographical Identities and Social Change – Some Critical Aspects on Regions as Key Factors for Development”. Both papers represent central concluding ideas from my academic career.

The second part consists of a summary of my research during my academic career. I also relate the text to my publication list at the end of the volume.

Abstract [sv]

Det är i år (2015) 50 år sedan det så kallade miljonprogrammet sjösattes. Miljonprogrammet innebar att 1 miljon lägenheter skulle byggas fram till år 1975. Stadsdelen Kronoparken är Värmlands och Karlstads tydligaste exempel på hur rekordår, urbanisering och miljonprogram tog sig uttryck i samhällsplanering och bostadsbyggande.

Rapporten handlar om planeringen av Kronoparken och hur detta speglar tidsandor och samhällsförändringar i stora drag samt övergripande tankar om samhällsplaneringens förutsättningar och uttryck. Kronoparken delar sin historia och sin situation med många andra miljonprogramsområden i Sverige.

Kronoparken har dock något som de andra saknar, nämligen ett universitet in på knutarna eller nästan mitt i sig. Uppmärksamhet ägnas därför åt satsningarna på och utvecklingen av Karlstads universitet och dess samspel med och betydelse för stadsdelen.

Bilden av Kronoparken formas också av den höga andelen invånare med utländsk bakgrund. Den mångkulturella prägeln är i delar av stadsdelen tydlig. Det hävdas att världen därmed finns på nära håll och att det ligger potential i detta. Den mångkulturella prägeln fanns inte på dagordningen när Kronoparken planerades.

Kronoparken är i många avseenden en uppdelad stadsdel. De olika delarna skiljer sig väsentligt åt vad gäller socioekonomisk struktur och situation. Det ligger en utmaning i detta.

Rapporten avslutas med en skiss till vision på temat integration inom stadsdelen och med staden i övrigt. Mycket talar för att planeringsperspektiven på Kronoparken allt mer handlar om att stadsdelen ska finna sin roll i de östra delarna av Karlstad.

Abstract [en]

This report is a collection of various texts on projects related to identities and life worlds. It consists of three papers: one theoretical and two dealing with special geographical study areas.

The terminology ‘Local and Regional Identities’ has been used and is still frequently used by geographers and regional planners, but what is its relevance today? In the first paper both personal experiences and ongoing trends in the world are used in an attempt to theoretically discuss what it refers to, or what it could refer to. The focus is on the term ‘relational’, frequently used by other authors relating to space in different ways. The definition here is delimited to people and identities based on their relations to different regions, since this is mainly humanistic geography. Three different kinds of identities are defined: person identities, region (or landscape or place) identities and relational identities.

The second paper is based on a field trip to a study area in Sweden, Östmark in the province of Värmland. Here life worlds and identities are communicated within the region and between two geographers from different parts of the world (Sweden and India).

The third paper is based on a field trip to ‘Ostmark region’ in Meeker County in the US with a pilot study on identities. This region represents a region with inhabitants with ancestors from Östmark in Sweden. Many people from Östmark migrated to the US, beginning in the 1860s and continuing to the 1920s.
