Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to illustrate how potential learning is related to hegemonic speech genres. This we do through examples from two religious education (RE) classrooms, one Norwegian and one Swedish. By presenting important dimensions of speech genres used in RE classrooms, the article also contributes to developing theory. The theoretical perspectives in use are drawn from sociocultural theory. The Bakhtinian concept of speech genre is the central one, but positions, positioning and discursive practice and its institutional framing are highlighted too. Methodologically the article starts with the theoretical perspectives and uses data from a case study to illustrate the importance of these perspectives in understanding constructions of potential learning in RE classrooms. Besides demonstrating the importance of these theoretical perspectives, the article shows how the potential learning of the RE classroom is related to the teachers’ positioning along a pupil–content axis and to the character of the speech genres where two dimensions seem of special importance: how religion is valued (respectfully – mockingly) and how the borders of religions and beliefs are to be understood (fixed – open).

Abstract [sv]

Svenska kyrkor och kyrkogårdar bär ofta på ett unikt arv av bygdens kulturella och religiösa historia. Men frågan är om och i så fall hur svenska skolelever kan tillgodogöra sig kyrkorum?

Under åren 2009 till 2011 arbetade Thomas Pfitzinger-Drewes och ett arbetslag i Svenska kyrkan, Munkfors församling i Värmland, med att inhämta kunskap om och omsätta den tyska kyrkopedagogiska metoden till svenska förhållanden. De arbetade kontinuerligt i nära samarbete med skolor i Munkfors kommun. Kyrkopedagogikens målsättning är att ge människor möjlighet att få en relation till och förståelse av kyrkorummet utan att för den skull behöva bekänna sig till någon tro. I den här boken beskriver Sören Dalevi och Christina Osbeck hur framförallt elever på de skolor som deltog upplevde dessa kyrkopedagogiska visningar men också lärares och skolledares perspektiv synliggörs.

I ett avslutande kapitel diskuteras projektet i relation till den svenska skolans läroplan. Erfarenheterna från projektet, exempelvis om förarbetets betydelse för deltagarnas upplevelse, är intressanta att uppmärksamma både då det gäller studiebesöksmetodik generellt och för skolans relation till andra trossamfund.

Abstract [en]

In their essay Failures of meaning in religious education, James Conroy, David Lundie, and Vivienne Baumfield report findings from their recent project Does Religious Education Work?, during which ethnographic studies in 24 British schools were conducted. In this response I first highlight the importance of the character of RE for considering what works and describe the kind of RE that the authors discuss. Secondly, I point to findings and conceptualisations which I consider important. Thirdly, I comment on factors which, the authors maintain, are important regarding failures of meaning in RE. I conclude with my interest in further empirical findings resulting from the rich material of this project.
