    The "red bag effect": the children's book as an empowering tool

    Helen Asklund

    Can we read books concerning “difficult themes” for children? Will they be too hard for young readers to cope with, and for grown-ups to know how to manage?     Questions like these are of great importance to all who work with young children or with educating future preschool teachers or children´s librarians. In my presentation I will discuss why I find it important that children are given the opportunity to meet with a varied selection of books. In addition, I will discuss important aspects to take into consideration when thinking about reading more challenging books with children.   I will do this by using examples from my own experiences of working with literature as a means for empowerment and for giving the silent a voice. My main example is a project related to the British Letterbox club. It was directed towards children in so-called family homes. The intention was to boost the children´s willingness to read by making the reading of literature a joint activity in their family homes. The reading was meant to work as a tool for bringing the families closer together. Most importantly, the books were to work as an empowering tool for the children, providing them with means for talking about feelings, experiences and thoughts for which they otherwise did not have a voice. The participants were recurrently provided with red bags that contained individually chosen books etc.   The ability of literature to empower its reader has also been at the core of a study that I and a colleague of mine conducted, and of our university course about fiction and health. In the study, we developed a model for how to use literature as a tool for giving patients with various psychological diagnoses the power to tell their story. The course was directed towards social workers and health care professionals. Among other things, the students prepared suggestions for how literature could be used in their profession, for instance in family therapy, to make children open up around experiences that had earlier been hard for them to approach.

    A party system in flux: the Swedish parliamentary election of September 20182019In: West European Politics, ISSN 0140-2382, E-ISSN 1743-9655, Vol. 42, no 7, p. 1504-1515Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Swedish parliamentary election of 7 September 2018, the biggest parties, the Social Democrats and the Moderates, both lost votes compared to their scores in the previous election, but not as many as they had feared. Commensurately, the radical-right challenger party, the Sweden Democrats (SD), which had seemed certain to profit from Sweden's dramatic experience of the European migration crisis, did well, but not as well as it had hoped. The result left the array of parliamentary forces fragmented and finely balanced. Only after months of negotiations could a government be formed. Eventually, the incumbent coalition received a renewed parliamentary mandate. At the same time, the party system was transformed.

    Kvalitetsarbete i staten: En studie med fokus på Statens Tjänstepensionsverk2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Offentlig förvaltning har under en lång tid präglats av traditionellt styre med hierarkisk struktur och hög grad av centralisering. Många forskare idag hävdar att vi sett en utveckling av en ny styrningsform de senaste årtiondena som präglats av decentralisering och innovativt tänkande. Det som kallas New Public Management. Det offentliga står idag inför utmaningar av att förbättra och upprätthålla sina arbetssätt. Genom att ha god kvalitet kan detta säkerställas. Kvalitet är någonting som alltid bör behandlas och som fått en större strategisk roll i dagens organisationer. Syftet med studien är att undersöka om det finns spår av NPM i myndighetens dagliga kvalitetsarbete och att belysa medarbetares perspektiv på det arbetet med kvalitet. Statens Tjänstepensionsverk är en svensk myndighet som arbetar på uppdrag av regeringen och som valts som studieobjekt i uppsatsen.

    Uppsatsen använder den teoretiska modellen Offensiv kvalitetsutveckling som analysverktyg för att analysera det dagliga kvalitetsarbetet. Modellen går ut på att underlätta säkerställandet av kvalitet. Sex intervjuer genomfördes på arbetsplatsen som sedan transkriberades och analyserades i en innehållsanalys. Resultatet visade att det går att se spår av NPM i SPV:s kvalitetsarbete. De använder sig också omedvetet av Offensiv kvalitetsutveckling i det dagliga arbetet. Genom användandet av den teoretiska referensramens innehåll, kunde också två förbättringsområden urskiljas.

    Reaching the Voter: Exploring Swedish Political Parties’ Assessment of Different Communication Channels in Three National Election Campaigns, 2010–20182019In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 121, no 3, p. 347-365Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The mediatization of politics denotes a long-term process through which politicalactors have become increasingly dependent on news media, the key mechanismbeing the adaptation to news media and news media logic by political actors. Oneaspect of this is related to how political parties communicate during election cam-paigns, and how important they perceive different communication channels to be.Against this background, the purpose of this study is to explore the assessment ofdifferent communication channels in election campaigns by political parties overtime. This study analyses the ways in which political parties value the importanceof traditional news media, social media and traditional methods for communica-tion with voters during election campaigns. The empirical material covers the 2010,2014 and 2018 Swedish national elections, enabling us to make comparisons withinthe same national context as well as to explore their development over time. Theresults indicate that news media is still considered the most important communi-cation channel, although social media is levelling the field.

    Vem tolererar korruption?: Protestanters tolerans för korruption – en multipel flernivåregressionsanalys på individnivå2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis was to test whether the protestant faith or the protestant tradition is the cause of the protestant suppressive effect on corruption and whether this effect prevails on an individual level. This was done using multilevel hierarchical regression models and over 350 000 survey questionnaires to avoid bias as well as national and cultural effects. This thesis shows that identifying oneself as protestant has a significant effect on ones tolerance of corruption, but this effect is severely reduced when controlling for socioeconomic and political factors. We further show that the level of religiosity is a relevant predictor in individual tolerance for corruption for protestants. The individual religious identity is, however, not as strong a predictor as documented aggregated levels of Protestantism, indicating that, while still relevant, national factors are more important in explaining variation in corruption.

    Nyheter, genus och politiska ledare: - En kvalitativ studie om hur Annie Lööf och Jan Björklund gestaltades i media under regeringsbildningen 20192019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The research problem on which this study is based on is that female and male politicians are represented differently in the media based on their gender. This was realized in the study by studying how media news reporting by Annie Lööf and Jan Björklund was presented during the government formation in 2019. The purpose of this was to understand and explain how media reporting is characterized by preconceived and stereotypical beliefs based on gender.

    Ten articles were studied between the time period January 21 and February 1, 2019. A qualitative method was used, through a qualitative text analysis. The framing theory and the media logic was taken into account in the development and understanding of the analysis, in order to explain in the results through Yvonne Hirdman's gender theory.

    The result shows that the media is characterized by the framing theory and media logic techniques in the production of articles, and that gender theory can explain the variation in the presentation between Annie Lööf and Jan Björklund.

    The conclusion is that the media is characterized by preconceived and stereotypical beliefs based on gender, and that this confirms what much previous research has shown.

    Stormakterna med vetorätt: En undersökning av Ryssland och USA:s retorik i FN:s säkerhetsråd mellan åren 1949 – 20182019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats undersöks den retorik som förts av Rysslands och USA:s representanter i samband med att något av de två länderna använt sitt veto i FN:s säkerhetsråd. Detta görs genom en innehållsanalys som samtidigt syftar till att pröva vilken av de två teorierna realism och konstruktivism som främst kan förklara hur dessa länder legitimerar sina ställningstaganden. Undersökningen avgränsas till protokoll från de möten där länderna använt sitt veto i säkerhetsrådet mellan åren 1949-2018. Resultaten visar att både USA:s och Rysslands retorik främst kunnat förklaras av den konstruktivistiska teorin men att realismen också haft stöd vid olika tidsperioder och beroende på vilket av länderna som använder sitt veto.

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie har redogjort för hur partimedlemmars socioekonomiska bakgrund påverkar det upplevda inflytandet inom svenska riksdagspartier. Denna studie har således genom statistiska analyser och hypoteser prövat relevansen av kön, utbildningsnivå och ålder. För att fullfölja syftet och för att besvara frågeställningen har studiens material bestått av den svenska partimedlemsundersökningen från 2015. Vidare har denna studie tillämpat tre olika tolkade indikatorer för det upplevda inflytandet vilket visat på ett varierande resultat avseende relevansen av de socioekonomiska faktorerna. Genom studiens resultat har studien funnit delvis stöd för två av tre hypoteser och förkastat en. Studien har funnit övervägande svaga men signifikanta inkonsekventa resultat som visar på att de undersökta socioekonomiska faktorerna har betydelse för det upplevda inflytandet.

    Flexibilitet i arbetet - en gränsdragningsproblematik?: En kvalitativ studie om balansen mellan flexibelt arbete och privatliv2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur lektorer vid Mittuniversitetet upplever att detflexibla arbetet påverkar privatlivet. Detta undersöks genom livshistorieintervjuer somresulterar i individuella berättelser utifrån deras upplevelser. Med en narrativanalysmetod pekar resultatet på att det flexibla arbetet påverkar samtliga respondenter,men hur de påverkas skiljer sig mellan dem. En huvudsaklig faktor som påverkar är genomatt flexibla arbetsvillkor möjliggör att arbete kan utföras på andra platser änarbetsplatsen och därmed öppnar upp för möjligheter att forma arbetet efter behov.Dock är tillgängligheten till arbetet en bidragande faktor som försvårar gränsdragningenmot privatlivet. Detta hanteras genom strategier som tillämpas för att inte låta det ta förstor plats i privatlivet, och för att orka fortsätta den krävande banan inom yrket.Tillgängligheten är samtidigt en positiv aspekt av flexibilitet i arbetet då man somarbetstagare inte är platsbunden till sitt arbete och kan utföra det i samverkan medprivatlivet, vilket motiverar respondenten till fortsatt flexibelt arbete.

    Objective meaning: The formation of self in Mead and Sohn-Rethel2019In: Acta Sociologica, ISSN 0001-6993, E-ISSN 1502-3869, Vol. 62, no 1, p. 34-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This analysis of the work of George Herbert Mead and Alfred Sohn-Rethel compares their respective accounts of the formation of the self. The analysis proceeds from two important similarities: the effort to understand self-consciousness not as primordial but as the product of social processes, and the view that these processes form a circuit: the self arises from consciousness’ return to itself, concluding a movement whereby consciousness is first externalized onto objects and then internalized, taking on the insular shape of self-consciousness. What sets the two accounts apart is the site from whence the self returns: objects. In Mead, the self returns from meaningful objects, and this same (intersubjective) meaning is entangled with the process of self-formation. In contrast, for Sohn-Rethel, the self returns from objects whose meaning is not established intersubjectively but objectively: the self is the unintended consequence of commodity exchange. In Mead, interaction among people affords meaning to objects and thus evokes the self; in Sohn-Rethel, interaction among commodities evokes an objective meaning that renders people as selves. Interpretative sociology should attend to the objectively and unconsciously meaningful forms analyzed by Sohn-Rethel. To illustrate this conclusion, reference is made to a certain experience of the social under neoliberalism.

    Blind spots in interaction between actors in Swedish planning for critical infrastructure protection2019In: Safety Science, ISSN 0925-7535, E-ISSN 1879-1042, Vol. 118, p. 424-434Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Failures in the power supply threaten the safety of developed countries, as they are increasingly dependent on electricity to maintain important societal functions through critical infrastructure. To protect electricity-dependent critical infrastructure, Sweden has implemented a multi-level planning, called Styrel, which involves national-, regional- and local-level actors. This study focuses on interactions among key actors and their roles in the planning as well as the Swedish crisis management system. With evidence from interviews and a survey among the actors, analyses indicate blind spots in the current proceeding, such as the reliance of the outcome of the process on the actors’ commitment to achieve a common understanding of the importance of infrastructure assets and participate in collaborations. This paper reveals that actors lack awareness, knowledge, capability and resources to fulfil their roles in the national planning for critical infrastructure protection. By highlighting interrelations, this study contributes to the international discussion of identification, prioritisation and protection of critical infrastructure to mitigate consequences of power failures for a depending society.

    Socialist Communication Strategies And The Spring Of 1917: Managing revolutionary opinion through the media system2019In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 44, no 2, p. 169-192Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Russian Revolution of 1917 presented Swedish Social Democrats with a dilemma: how could they use the transnational revolutionary momentum to further universal suffrage, without supporting actions possibly leading to violence? In striking this balance, the use of communications was central. This article uses the concept of the media system to analyse the communicative practices and strategies developed by the Party in the early 20th century, and how these were employed between 1915 and 1917, in relation to the hunger marches and revolutionary pressures. The study shows that the Party had established conscious agitation strategies and an elaborate national communication structure, which enabled coordinated opinion activities. As early as 1915, the Party began using these tools to initiate a national opinion movement concerning the food situation. In 1917, faced with the combination of events in Russia and erupting hunger marches, the Party leadership chose to emphasize security and stability, focusing on events the Party could control, such as the 1 May demonstrations. The resulting development of revolutionary opinion in Sweden during the spring of 1917 and the ensuing political changes reflected conscious media management strategies by the Left, who used the media system to navigate and shape a transnational revolutionary moment.

    Har vänsterpartier en positiv effekt på kvinnlig politisk representation i kommunfullmäktige?2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie handlar om hur kvinnors politiska representation påverkas av sammansättningen av partier i lokala kommunfullmäktige församlingar i Sveriges kommuner. Studien testar specifikt hypotesen att andelen vänsterpartier är en positiv faktor för den kvinnliga representationen som formulerats i ljuset av tidigare forskning. För att testa hypotesen görs en undersökning på N-290, alla svenska kommuners valresultat från 2018. Hypotesen testas mot flera kontrollvariabler som i tidigare forskning funnit påverkar kvinnors politiska representation; andel med 3 år eller fler på högskola, befolkningstäthet, och det totala antalet mandat i kommunfullmäktige. Resultaten av undersökningen visar att andelen västerpartier i kommunfullmäktige har en signifikant påverkan på andelen kvinnlig politisk representation, även kontrollerat för kontrollvariablerna. Undersökningen fann också att den socioekonomiska faktorn om andel med 3 år eller mer av högskola har en signifikant påverkan, däremot saknar befolkningstäthet och antal mandat i kommunfullmäktige signifikant påverkan på den kvinnliga representationen i svenska kommuner i valet 2018.

    The Gender-Representation Gap in Radical Right Parties: Is There Any Contagion Effect from Parties with Small Gaps?2019In: Comparative Sociology, ISSN 1569-1322, E-ISSN 1569-1330, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 66-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about women's political participation in times of increased influence from radical right parties. The gender-representation gap in the Swedish radical right party, the Sweden Democrats, is examined. A reformulated contagion theory is tested using three hypotheses. To test the hypotheses, a large-N study of all of Sweden's municipalities is conducted. The results show that a large gender-representation gap exists in the Sweden Democrats party compared with that in the other main parties, and the gap has a negative effect on the total level of female representation in the municipal councils. However, the gap and the negative effect are decreasing over time in relation to the other main parties, which supports the hypotheses and the reformulated contagion theory.

    Medias framställning av föräldrar och föräldraskap ur ett genusperspektiv: - En longitudinell diskursanalys av magasinet Vi Föräldrar mellan 1990-20152019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka hur föräldrar framställs i magasinet "Vi Föräldrar" ur ett genusperspektiv. Det är en longitudinell studie som undersöker hur normer kring femininitet, maskulinitet och sexualitet kopplat till föräldraskapet har förändrats mellan åren 1990-2015. Studien visar också hur media avspeglar samhället och är en del av reproduktionen av rådande normer. Studien har en socialkonstruktivistisk utgångspunkt och tolkas framförallt utifrån Yvonne Hirdmans genusteori och Judith Butlers queerteori. Studien använder sig av en kvalitativ metod där både text och bild har analyserats genom en kritisk diskursanalys av utvalda reportage under den givna perioden. Analysen visar att det har skett en förändring i hur magasinet framställer föräldraskapet. Traditionella könsroller minskar över tid samtidigt som ett gemensamt föräldraskap ökar. I början av perioden tillskrivs de två olika könen femininitet och maskulinitet, detta förändras till att i slutet framställa föräldraskapet mer könsneutralt och även ge utrymme för andra sexualiteter än heterosexualitet. I det delade föräldraskapet är det trots detta kvinnan som ges den primära föräldrarollen men det tycks vara något som magasinet vill förändra.

    Den universella välfärden och tilliten: – ett experiment2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate if and what effect universal and means-tested welfare programs have on people's (different forms of) trust. This is done through an experimental design in order to be able to demonstrate a causal relationship between the design of welfare programs and the perceived level of trustin individuals. A total of 98 students from Midsweden University in Sundsvall, Sweden, participated in the experiment. The respondents were divided into two experimental groups that had to fill out a trust-survey that was preceded by one out of two separate welfare scenarios – a means-tested one or a universal one.

    The results confirms the hypothesis that universal welfare programs create a statistically significantly higher universal trust than means-tested programs, but not the hypothesis that means-tested programs create a statistically significantly higher particularized trust than universal welfare programs. At the same time the results show that universal welfare programs create a statistically significantly higher universal trust than particularized trust and that means-tested programs create a statistically significantly higher partizularized trust than universal trust. Finally the results also provide empirical support for the existence of a causal relationship between the design of welfare programs and the level of trust in individuals and society.

    Childbearing and Marriage: Investigating the Importance of Context for Meaning-Making of First-Time Marriage2019In: Marriage and Family Review, ISSN 0149-4929, E-ISSN 1540-9635, Vol. 55, no 1, p. 38-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research reveals that the temporal ordering of childbearing and marriage can have an impact on the meaning of first-time marriage. This article aims to obtain a deeper understanding of meaning-making of first-time marriage in relation to childbearing. Narrative interviews with 16 brides and grooms in 8 couples in Sweden were conducted. The material was analyzed in relation to the temporal ordering of childbearing and marriage. The study reveals that the construction of meaning of marriage does not only relate to the temporal context. Social factors such as social class or family formation might also be relevant for how meaning is constructed. This article contributes to a deeper understanding of meaning-making as a relational process constructed within particular contexts.

    Fluid Positions and Changing Strategies: A Narrative Analysis of How Parents Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence Talk about Their Contact with Social Services2019In: Nordic Social Work Research, ISSN 2156-857X, E-ISSN 2156-8588, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 172-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many parents exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV) encounter the childcare unit at Personal Social Services (PSS) in Sweden. This article explores how different ways of positioning in relation to the childcare unit, on one hand, and the other parent, on the other, may influence how parents exposed to IPV respond to interventions from the PSS organisation. The article draws on findings from qualitative interviews with 16 PSS clients who are or have been exposed to IPV and who have children with the abusive partner. Positioning Theory is used for the narrative analysis of the material. The narrative of one person is presented as an example of how narratives of IPV victims can be told. The study reveals that clients’ responses to different interventions might be the result of strategies for handling both the other parent and social services. Furthermore, over time, clients may change strategies in their contact with social services as a result of new ways of positioning in relation to social services and primary relations. An understanding of how primary relations, such as the relation to the other parent, may influence clients’ contacts with PSS and vice versa may improve the understanding of why clients act a certain way in relation to the organisation or why they suddenly seem to change their approach to interventions.

    Intersectional perspectives of house owner narratives on climate risks2019In: Journal of Risk Research, ISSN 1366-9877, E-ISSN 1466-4461Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to investigate the construction of climate risks and to identify how it intersects with different forms of discursive categories in house owner narratives. Interviews with 44 house owners in four regions exposed to climate risks in Sweden were analyzed using the narrative method. I use intersectional risk theory, in which risk is constructed in relation to different forms of power structure, to interpret the narratives. The results indicate that narrators do risk in different ways in relation to the master narratives of the climate threat and individual environmental responsibility, which dominate the official rhetoric in Sweden. Three risk narratives are revealed in the interviews: (1) the master narrative of ‘the responsible house owner,’ (2) the alternative narrative of ‘the vulnerable house owner’, and (3) the counter-narrative of ‘the safe house owner.’ The climate risks talked about could relate to the narrator’s own house or to risks at a local or global level. The results indicate that different intersections of class, gender, age, and place shape different ways of positioning in relation to risk, by describing oneself as more or less aware of and exposed to climate risks. The analysis also reveals that different intersections of social structures lead to shifting prerequisites for house-owner preparedness towards preventing and managing climate risks. Such an understanding is important when trying to comprehend why some house owners adapt their homes to a changed climate while others do not. Aspects like these are necessary to consider while, e.g. deciding on policy and writing information and guidelines on adaptation to climate change.

    Why Art?: The Anthropocene, Ecocriticism, and Adorno’s Concept of Natural Beauty2019In: Adorno Studies, ISSN 1927-8748, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 64-79Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article confronts contemporary ecocriticism with Adorno’s concept of natural beauty. If ecocriticism may be understood as a reaction to climate change – the gravity of the situation turns the academic into an activist – a fundamental question often remains unanswered: why should we turn to art if we are facing ecological disaster? The article then presents Adorno’s answer to this question, an answer that is closely tied to his theory of natural beauty. A crucial point in Adorno’s discussion of nature is that we no longer have access to it. We are stuck in a second nature which deprives us of all contact with first nature. But the closest we can get to this absent nature is art, and more precisely natural beauty, which contains both a memory of something lost, and a promise of something yet to come. Therefore the aesthetic experience is a moment where the subject may approach something unknown – something which is not subject, not human – in a non-dominating way. In that sense art may be our best option to get out of the anthropocentrism which prevents us from even understanding the current situation. After a comparison with contemporary theorists like Timothy Morton and Claire Colebrook, the article finally turns to Andrei Tarkovsky’s film The Sacrifice in order to illustrate what the strange combination of memory and promise in natural beauty may look like in practice.

    Heltid som norm – kontroll för vem?: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om förändringar i omsorgsarbetares arbetsmiljö till följd av en arbetstidsmodell2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    För att bryta den så kallade "deltidsnormen" inom omsorgssektorn genomförs flertalet kommunala förändringsprojekt runt om i Sverige. Den här studien syftade till att undersöka ett av dessa projekt för att se vad införandet av "Heltid som norm" får för konsekvenser när det kommer till de anställdas arbetsmiljö, med särskilt fokus på möjligheter till kontroll i arbetet. I projektet testades en arbetstidsmodell benämnd "85/10/5", där siffrorna åsyftar arbetstid i procent. Totalt studerades sju kommunala verksamheter, fyra gruppboenden och tre äldreboenden. I varje respektive verksamhet utfördes semistrukturerade fokusgruppsintervjuer med ett varierande antal anställda. För att skapa en förståelse för de förändringar som sker i verksamheterna användes Joan Ackers teoretiska ramverk kring ojämlikhetsregimer inom organisationer. För att uppfylla studiens syfte besvarades följande frågeställningar: Hur upplever anställda att möjligheterna till kontroll i arbetet har förändrats till följd av arbetstidsmodellen? På vilket sätt skiljer sig anställdas möjligheter till kontroll i arbetet mellan verksamheter inom vård och omsorg och stöd och omsorg? Studiens huvudsakliga resultat visar på en problematik när det kommer till minskad arbetstagarkontroll av arbetstid, vilket skapar en oförutsägbarhet som försvårar individens möjlighet att planera sitt liv.
