    Ethics, Aesthetics and Identity in Global Crises: Satire and Discourse in Grönköpings Veckoblad2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The point of departure of this presentation is how contemporary concerns, hatred and threats are reflected in the Swedish satire journal Grönköpings Veckoblad (Grönköping Weekly Bulletin). GV has been published independently since 1916 and reflects events and trends in Sweden, as well as in the world, as if they had happened in the small fictional town “Grönköping”. Through some breif examples, I discuss how aesthetical and ethical aspects of satire correlates with local and global issues. It will be argued that Grönköpings Veckoblad assumes a double position in a contemporary self-understanding. On the one hand, the mode of satire tends to be threat-reducing and familiarizing. GV presents a world that is home-like, unchangeable, free of crises. On the other hand, GV constantly attacks otherness, i.e. disastrous vices of individuals, institutions and phenomenon. The satire’s embed critique implicates an ideal nation: how Sweden ought to be and how citizens ought to behave. The ideal is, to a large part, governed by a conservative-liberal moral. Yet, GV has no default ideology. The journal deconstructs one fallible society and construct a new prevailing society – that also, of course, is nothing but a chimera. Seemingly, the satirist’s play of negations ends up in a balancing act, also characteristic for a clichéd image of Sweden as a country of moderateness.

    Strindbergs värld: En tematisk författarskapsläsning2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    August Strindberg’s works are not just stories of external circumstances and objects; they are also an expression of a creative consciousness. Through close readings of six works emblematic of different literary styles, including Miss Julie (1888) and Inferno (1897), Karin Aspenberg reveals in this study a provisional notion of the world of experience of consciousness and breaks new ground within the field of Strindberg research. The purpose of the study is to find the author in the literary text, not in an objective reality. The work in itself is everything; the author is irrelevant. An illustration of the relationship between subject, language and the world in Strindberg’s literary work is possible with the aid of the theoretical method: thematic criticism, whose philosophical foundation is hermeneutics and phenomenology. Aspenberg points out that Strindberg, in his writing, is deeply involved in a struggle with the conditions of existence, not least as a fundamental experience of emptiness. In this way, she manages to follow a seemingly hidden strategy and to problematize at the same time the ideological message of the text. Strindberg’s literary work can be understood as an existential project that strives on the one hand to construct a logically based image of the author, in order to gain recognition, and on the other hand to find a stable solution to the nothingness of existence.

    Bildernas språk, språkets bilder: Transformationer och estetisk-kommunikativa funktioner i Selma Lagerlöfs (serie)roman En herrgårdssägen2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår kulturella kontext genomkorsas av transfererade berättelser, teman och motiv. I spåren av ökad digi-talisering och teknisk utveckling pågår konstant mediala överföringar av språkliga och bildliga uttryck. Att skriven fiktion överförs till andra medier är numera vanligt. I det avseende var Selma Lagerlöf en föregångare. Redan i början av 1900-talet lät hon flera av sina berättelser bli film. Idag är också den teck-nade serieromanen aktuell. Ett exempel på det är att Lagerlöfs roman En herrgårdssägen, från 1899, över-fördes till serieroman av Marcus Ivarsson och gavs ut 2013. Även i Ivarssons version, i kombinationen av bilder och text, framhävs teman som kärlekens och konstens kraft, avgrundsdjup sorg och själsligt utanförskap. Men hur skildras detta i ord och bild i de två medierna litterär roman respektive tecknad serieroman? Vad är mediespecifikt och vad är medieneutralt? Vad lämnas åt läsaren att själv tolka in eller sakna i berättelsen och hur kan dessa luckor förklaras?

    Syftet med detta paper är att studera de två medieringarna av En herrgårdssägen. Teoretiska utgång-spunkter är transmedialitet och adaption (Elleström och Hutcheon). Dessa begrepp är viktiga eftersom studiet av överföringen av ett narrativ från ett medium till ett annat markerar karaktären och funktionen i ett medium jämfört med det andra, och kan ge olika typer av estetisk effekt. En annan utgångspunkt är den receptionsestetiska. Inriktningen hör till den gren av läsarorienterade teorier som har en fenomenol-ogisk inriktning. Den delar uppfattningen att berättelser till sin natur är fulla av luckor eller tomrum som vi som läsare måste/behöver/har möjlighet att fylla i om vi skall kunna skapa mening utifrån vad vi läser eller ser. (Ingarden, Iser, Abbott, Wolff). En litterär text, exempelvis, kräver läsarens aktiva medverkan, eftersom den präglas av en hög grad av obestämbarhet. Samma sak gäller serieromaner, där luckor existerar såväl mellan som inom de tecknade serierutorna.

    Då och nu – arbetarmän på landsbygden och deras läsarhistorier2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien ansluter till ett tidigare projekt där vi genomfört livsberättelseintervjuer med unga arbetarmän som bor på landsbygden, vilkas berättade erfarenheter av läsning legat till grund för framskrivandet av dessa mäns  läsarhistorier. Resultatet av detta projekt har bl.a. publicerats i en artikel i Gender & Education (Asplund & Pérez Prieto, 2017) i vilken vi visar på möjligheterna, och behovet av att studera arbetarmäns relation till, och erfarenheter av läsning utifrån en livsberättelseansats med en vidgad syn på text och läsning (se också Asplund, 2016; Asplund & Pérez Prieto, 2014, 2016). Bland annat visar vi hur de unga männens läsarhistorier har tagit form i relation till den i samhället dominerande diskursen om läsning genom vilken de unga männen i flera avseenden förminskar sig själva som läsare, men också att läsarhistorierna har formats av, och format de specifika sociala och kulturella kontexter och diskurser vilka de unga männen lever i och är en del av.

       Med erfarenheterna från det tidigare projektet genomförs i den här studien livsberättelseintervjuer med vuxna män med arbetarklassbakgrund, uppvuxna under olika årtionden i en glesbygdskommun i Sverige. Gemensamt för de intervjuade är att de ska ha studerat på ett traditionellt mansdominerat yrkesprogram (eller motsvarande) på gymnasiet eller yrkesskola. Motivet till detta är att vi vill ta del av berättelser och perspektiv från en f.d. elevgrupp där andelen elever med arbetarklassbakgrund är hög, och där genomströmningen till vidare studier i jämförelse med elever från teoretiska gymnasieprogram, är markant lägre. Syftet är att studera vilken betydelse läsning och texter har, har haft, och ges i dessa mäns liv, och hur de individuella läsarhistorierna samverkar med det omgivande samhällets utveckling (i termer av exempelvis ekonomiska, sociala, kulturella och teknologiska förändringar). I denna presentation kommer vi att presentera några 60-åriga mäns läsarhistorier.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine how specialist teachers relate to content- and language-integrated learning, as well as examine if and how they work with developing the pupils' language and subject knowledge in the tutoring in order to benefit for the pupils learning process. The intention is also to examine which lingual challenges the teachers see in their subject. To answer the research questions, a qualitative method is used, and semi-structured interviews. In total, five senior high school teachers from one school in Västra Götaland have been interviewed and the subjects represented are physical education, social science, history, religion, sociology, mathematics and natural science. The result shows that teachers support content- and language integrated learning in their tutoring and they also believe that it is important to develop the pupils' lingual ability in order for them to develop in their specific subject. However, the result shows that the old subject tradition is still evident to some extent, but the perception of the role as a specialist teacher is changing. Moreover, the result shows that the teachers work with content- and language integrated learning in their specific subject, with an emphasis on terms and the understanding of concepts. It is evident that Vygotskys socio-cultural perspective and Hallidays systemic-functional grammar is seen in how teachers work, but the conclusion is that teachers to a large extent work according to these theories without being aware of it, and thus rather makes it right by coincidence. Further, the result shows that the teachers are aware of what lingual challenges the pupils' come across in their specific subject, and they agree on that there are mainly the cognitive abilities that challenge the pupil.

    In Conflict with Conformity: The Protagonist’s Struggle against Victorian Institutions and Gendered Behavioral Norms in Jane Eyre2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the theme of conformity in Charlotte Brontë’s novel Jane Eyre. It highlights in particular the protagonist’s conflict with conformity as criticism of social inequality in terms of gender. The analysis builds on the patriarchal concept of the angel of the house, as described by Lois Tyson and Alastair Henry and Catharine Walker Bergström, which is a definition of the governing codes of behavior women of the nineteenth century were expected to follow within both the domestic and professional sphere. Specifically, these spheres are organized through significant Victorian institutions such as the household, the education and employment of women and the marriage. The behavior of Jane is discussed in relation to these institutions as a means to support the argument of the protagonist distancing herself from contemporary gender norms. The conclusion of the essay shows that Jane’s circumstances within these institutions leads to her deviation from behavioral norms as a deliberate action.

    ”Nu är det engelska så då pratar vi engelska. Så enkelt är det”: En studie om engelsklärares användande av målspråket under lektionerna i engelska.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims at generating an understanding of today's teaching in English. The study  seeks to find out in what extent teachers in grade 4-6 speak English during the lessons in English and on what occasions the teacher chooses to use the English language. The work empiricism consists of two different methods, classroom observations and qualitative interviews. In order to get such a broad picture of teacher's English teaching as possible, classroom observations were conducted first and then supplemented with an interview. Respondents participating in this study work in the municipal sector at four different schools in central Sweden.

             The study shows that English as an teaching language is used at all times during the lesson, and that English is the most used teaching language. The teaching language fluctuates a lot, and the teachers who participated in this study mainly choose languages according to the group and the pupils in the group. All participating teachers used Swedish as a tool to answer the students' questions and guide them. The teachers primarily want to create a safe place for the students and to make sure everyone understands what´s being said on the lessons.

    Feministiska budskap hos Jane Austen: En studie av samhällskritik i Northanger Abbey och dess relevans som undervisningsmaterial i kursen svenska 22019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Jane Austen novels deals with young women in the late eighteenth century and early twentieth century and have made her one of the classical writers of the English literature. Northanger Abbey (1818), one of her first novels, is also one of her most humoristic and ironic productions. Although, it is not her most mentioned or most famous novels but it is, in my own words, one of her most underestimated novels. In Northanger Abbey, the actual class differences, gender roles and gender expectations that existed in England during her time are reflected. This paper uses gender theory with a biographic foundation to examine how Austen uses satire to criticize society. Through an analyze of the novel, social criticism can be distinguished where women’s conditions, their role and position as well as social conventions, the patriarchy and the popular gothic genre are criticized. The essay concludes that Austen uses humor, irony and parody as tools to be able to say what was publicly forbidden to say and the novel thereby criticizes the social norms. Austen has written a novel that includes a number of messages and shows feministic signs as she takes a stand for women’s rights and status. Through Northanger Abbey’s rich content it proves to be a suitable material to use in the school to promote the students’ development and learning, in oral as well as written form.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate teachers’ attitudes and approaches to linguistic varieties in teaching and also to find out how they are represented in the classroom. The study was made from a sociolinguistic perspective. The study includes the methods, interviews and observations. The methods are used to investigate attitudes towards and teachers‘ approach to different varieties in the language. Furthermore the aim is to create an image of how the language varieties takes expression in teaching situations.

    The results of the study proves a mostly positive attitudes towards varieties in spoken language. The study also shows occasions when the varieties are seen as something negative, and some occasions where the correct way of using language are more preferably. A part of this study was to investigate different generations perspective of spoken language, which is presented and discussed. The outcome was something else then the hypothesis. The respondents of this investigation are connecting the concepts “youth language” and “bad language”. They also emphasizes that swearing is increasing in school. However, they point out, that the early years of primary school is relatively liberated from the bad language and that an increase occurs at the transition to middle school. The study also includes how teachers are working with language switching and appreciation of different variates.

    Reading Matters: An Exploration of ELT textbooks in Sweden and their approach to reading2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis investigates to what extent contemporary ELT textbooks include reading materials as well as what types of texts are being used and what reading strategies they seemingly promote. Additionally, the study analyzes whether there is a noticeable discrepancy in teaching materials designed for the vocational and university preparatory and considers whether the design of the current textbook is representative of the current view of reading as a teaching tool as reflected in official policy documents. Through the means of a content analysis of a total of six in use ELT textbooks, the study discovers that few ELT textbooks include a satisfactory amount of reading materials and that there is a significant discrepancy between teaching materials intended for the separate orientations of upper secondary school in Sweden. It is also discovered that the set of textbooks largely reflect the current view of language teaching. The study concludes that the current practice of language teaching is ill-suited to counter the development of declining reading literacy and suggests an alternative methodology in extensive reading.

    Surveillance in Nineteen Eighty-Four: The Dismantling of Privacy in Oceania2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to analyze how certain elements of panopticism manage to dismantle the notion of privacy in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. By reading the text through a lens of panopticism, a theory introduced by Jeremy Bentham, I give examples on how the surveillance methods used by the Party share similarities with the system of surveillance within a Panoptic prison, but also in what ways that they differ. In the end, it is obvious that the society of Oceania cannot be considered to be a complete Panopticon, although several elements of panopticism are present within the text and that they dismantle the aspect of privacy in the novel.

    Characterization in Social Satire: A comparative analysis of the heroines Elizabeth Bennet in Jane Austenʼs Pride and Prejudice, and Becky Sharp in William Makepeace Thackerayʼs Vanity Fair2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay presents a comparative analysis of the characterizations of the female protagonists Elizabeth Bennet in Jane Austen̕ s Pride and Prejudice (1813), and Becky Sharp in William Makepeace Thackeray̕ s Vanity Fair (1847-1848). The analysis is conducted from a gender perspective, and with the use of feminist criticism. The two novels complement each other since they are both satirical images of society, concerning aspects such as class and gender. Also, both novels  portray women climbing the class ladder, during the period of the Napoleonic wars. In the comparison, the main focus lies on the social satire constructed around the heroines of these novels. I come to the conclusion that Austen̕ s and Thackeray̕ s characterizations are very different from each other, mainly due to their different satirical approaches. This conclusion is put in relation to a patriarchal context and to feminist values.

    Värv och verk: Förnyelse och tradition i Nordisk kvinnolitteraturhistoria från tillkomst till tryckt bok2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Nordisk kvinnolitteraturhistoria [The History of Nordic Women’s Literature; henceforth NKLH] is a history of literature published in five volumes 1993–1998. It was written with the overtly stated intention to change literary history on feminist grounds. The primary aim of this doctoral thesis is to map out and analyze the ways in which NKLH shows renewal and tradition compared to the histories of literature that it was a critique of. What conventions and criteria in the genre of literary history has the group of researchers strived to challenge, and what have they overlooked or neglected? How was the ambition of renewal in NKLH received on publication? What underlying factors in the project’s design and execution can account for the final product? The thesis explores these questions in three main chapters: one that analyses the processes of writing NKLH by means of an archival study, one that analyses the reception of the volumes in newspapers and journals, and one that analyses aspects of renewal and tradition in the four chronological volumes.

    The most significant ways in which NKLH shows renewal compared to previous histories of literature are in its reinterpretations of canonized authors and in its broad inclusion of different types of texts in the first two volumes. The Nordic approach is another area of renewal. The inter-Nordic perspectives in the volumes tend, however, toward a Danish-Swedish dominance. In some aspects NKLH also shows tradition, most notably in its strong developmental narrative and in its selection of literary genres in the latter two volumes. That NKLH shows both renewal and tradition is a result partly of what the researchers involved wanted to convey, partly of long-lived traditions and expectations within the genre of literary history, and partly of material factors such as organization, funding, geographical outspread and the parallel production of national histories of women’s literature in two of the Nordic countries.

    Vrede och solidaritet som motstånd: I Jenny Wrangborgs Vad ska vi göra med varandra och Anneli Jordahls Som hundarna i Lafayette Park2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores two literary texts written from a female working class perspective: Vad ska vi göra med varandra, a poetry collection by Jenny Wrangborg and Som hundarna i Lafayette Park, a novel by Anneli Jordahl. My aim for this thesis was to find out what kind of function war, seeking refuge, fighting for freedom, as well as experiences of these phenomena, have in the studied works. The categories class, gender, ethnicity and race have been interpreted through intersectional theories. The literary works have also been discussed by using concepts such as respectability, identification, alienation, solidarity, identity, wrath and cynicism. In conclusion, the study shows that the narrators identify themselves on basis of class to a greater extent than gender, and they use the experiences of other ethnicities and non-whites for comparisons with working class experiences as well as to create a common ground of solidarity. In addition, wrath appears as an important motive power in these works. Furthermore, the works got report book characteristics and lend voice to non-privileged groups of people, depict nuanced images of the alienation concept and show that dignity and solidarity can be used as rebellion against a cynical contemporary.

    "Kom, så ska jag läsa för er": En kvalitativ studie om lärares tankar om högläsning2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to get a view of teachers thoughts of reading aloud in school, and how they choose to work with reading aloud. I have also investigated if, and in that case how, the teachers connect reading aloud to reading comprehension. The empirical basis for the study consists of six interviews with active teachers from pre-school class to grade four, where the information has been related to previous research on reading, and in particular reading aloud, and also reading comprehension. The result shows that all interviewed teachers use reading loud in their teaching, but in different ways and in varying degrees. Some of the teachers combine reading aloud with reading comprehension, while others choose to work with reading comprehension separately at other occassions.

    Motivation för läsning: Hur pedagoger kan arbeta för att bygga motivation och intresse för läsundervisning2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to survey how teachers work with reading to motivate students to raise an interest. The aim of this study is to find answers on which elements can affect students reading habits, in which ways teachers can operate to make reading education motivating and how we can operate to build an interest and a desire to read among the students. The survey has been defined to operative teachers in Karlstad kommun and students in the ages 9- 10.

    To implement this study both qualitative observations and qualitative interviews have occurred. Three teachers have been interviewed and their classes has been observed. The result of this study shows that, a varying education is beneficial and promotes motivation and interest amongst the students. All teachers illustrate how important reading education is and puts much effort in presenting the students a continuous instruction in reading.

    Printers' Devices and the Author Function in Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene2015In: 50th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, MI, May 14-17, 2015, 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates the printers’ devices found in early editions of Spenser’s The Faerie Queene. Such devices by definition function as early trademarks for the printers. However, there is still room for an inquiry into possible connections between the devices and the volumes they introduce. My main argument is that the device in later editions of The Faerie Queene is no longer primarily used as a printer’s trade mark but has become associated with the volume printed, and thus being part of the gradual expansion in the period of what Focault calls the “author function.” My approach will be deliberately narrow in that I will restrict myself to these title pages, and giving special attention to the printers’ devices.

    Semantic patterns in the description of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump: A semantic analysis of adjectives in the editorials of two U.S. newspapers2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Politicians work hard on how they are perceived by their voters, but what they cannot control is how media portray them. In order to get some insight into how Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were described during the general election 2016, this study will analyse adjectives from a semantic perspective, which entails semantic classification, sentiment scores and an Appraisal analysis of adjectives found in editorials from The New York Times and The Washington Times. The purpose of this is to reveal if there are any semantic patterns as to how the adjectives were used to describe the candidates and if there is a relationship between these hypothetical patterns and the political affiliations of the newspapers. The findings of this study suggest that there are semantic patterns as to how the presidential candidates are described. Moreover, the results from the analysis of The New York Times seem to display a relationship between the adjectives and the political orientation of the newspaper whereas the results from The Washington Times are less clear, although there are some indications of such a connection.

    Att kunna engelska är viktigt, eller?: En undersökning om högstadieelevers attityder till engelska och engelskundervisningen2015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien syftar till att undersöka elevers syn på skolans roll när de lär sig engelska och deras attityder till det engelska språket och engelskundervisningen. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av en enkätundersökning, där 92 elever i årskurs 9 från två olika högstadieskolor deltog. Resultatet visar att eleverna är positivt inställda till det engelska språket och fritidsengelskan. Majoriteten av dem tycker att de inhämtar mer kunskap i engelska på fritiden än i skolan och knappt hälften tycker att de lär sig språket bäst själva, utan skolans hjälp. Resultatet visar också att en stor majoritet av eleverna anser att skolan har en viktig roll när de lär sig engelska och de inser vikten av att inhämta grammatiska kunskaper. Eleverna värderar den muntliga förmågan högt och många av dem anser att det är lättare att prata engelska på fritiden än i skolan. Majoriteten elever anser också att undervisningen behöver anpassas till att likna deras fritidsengelska mer och många elever ser gärna att det är mer arbete med film på lektionerna. Resultatet visar även att det förekommer en viss könsskillnad vid några av frågorna.

    Läsa skönlitteratur - ett nöje eller en plåga?: En undersökning om högstadieelevers attityder till läsning av skönlitteratur och skönlitteratur i undervisningen, samt lärares arbetssätt och syn på elevers attityder2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien syftar till att undersöka elevers attityder till läsning av skönlitteratur och skönlitteratur i undervisningen. Syftet är även att undersöka lärares syn på elevers attityder till läsning och skönlitteratur i undervisningen, samt hur lärare använder sig av skönlitteratur i svenskundervisningen. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av två enkätundersökningar, en för lärare och en för elever. 79 elever från två olika högstadieskolor deltog, liksom 29 lärare från 16 olika högstadieskolor. Resultatet visar att majoriteten av eleverna har en negativ inställning till läsning av skönlitteratur, men anser det ändå vara viktigt att läsa. De flesta av dem föredrar tv/film eller datorspel vid möte av fiktiv värld och majoriteten av eleverna läser aldrig skönlitteratur på fritiden. Resultatet visar också att många av dem är negativt inställda till användandet av skönlitteratur i undervisningen och känner inte att det inspirerar dem till att läsa på fritiden. Vidare visar resultatet att lärarna använder sig av flera olika arbetsmetoder vid användningen av skönlitteratur i undervisningen, och likaså när det gäller arbetet att öka elevers läsmotivation. Majoriteten av lärarna upplever att det finns ett motstånd till läsning av skönlitteratur hos elever och att läsintresset bland elever har minskat. En stor majoritet av lärarna tycker även att läsförståelsen hos elever har försämrats. Lärarnas inställning till skönlitteratur i undervisningen är positiv och många av dem anser också att den kan ha en positiv inverkan på elevers attityder till läsning.
