    New Em@ncipatory Landscapes?: Young People With Intellectual Disabilities, Internet Use and Identification Processes2017In: Advances in Social Work, ISSN 1527-8565, Vol. 18, no 2, 645-662 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although research on young people's identification processes on the Internet is a growing field, few studies illustrate conditions for young people with intellectual disabilities (ID). Previous studies have shown that young people with ID are worried about being marginalized, and that many in fact are lonelier than other young people. Internet and social networking sites might be of vital importance as a space for exploring alternative and less stigmatized identities. This article reports findings from individual interviews with 27 young people with ID in Sweden. The transcribed interviews were analyzed using a thematic content analysis. A prominent finding concerned the informants being well aware of both risks and opportunities using Internet and Social Networking Sites. Consequently, the more they interacted with non-disabled peers, the more they experienced negative consequences of Internet use. These circumstances rather lead to downsizing than upsizing Internet use, and less participation on Social Networking Sites. The experiences of the informants are discussed in a conceptual framework of social identity, participation, and emancipation. We recommend that social work practitioners reflect upon the ways that support can be arranged in order to empower young people with ID to participate on the Internet.

    Health care providers becoming as human beings in end-of-life care: a tentative theory model2017In: The 15th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC): Abstracts, Hayward Medical Communications, 2017, 853-853 p., P02-172Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim is to elucidate dimensions in a tentative theory model of health care providers becoming as human beings in end-of-life care. Health care providers as fellow human beings are vulnerable and caring for patients at the end-of-life is usually something that not goes without a trace for health care providers. The awareness of death can give meaning and understanding of one's own life. Health care providers' existential situation has received small extent of attention. Design, methods and approach: A caring science perspective based on Eriksson's theory of caritative caring, was used to reveal dimensions of health care providers becoming as human beings. The material consists of two substudies with interviews, one meta-synthesis and three focus groups interviews with a total of 1635 nurses. In the interpretation of the material a hermeneutic overall approach was chosen. Result: The theory model indicates that health care providers in a caring communion in end of-life allows contact with life and oneself as human beings. It is an inner awakening for health care provider as human beings, an inner movement to the awareness to be able to love unselfishly in the caring of patient. When health care providers get contact with life and oneself as human beings they struggle to be reconciled with their own life situations. Becoming, as human beings can be revealed as an understanding of life and feelings of inner strength and happiness as human beings and as health care providers in end-of-life care. Conclusion: The dimensions of the theory model can give a deeper understanding of health care providers becoming as human being. In caring community health care providers can experiencing difficult situations where there inner as human beings will be touched and existential questions raises about health and suffering, dying and death. Becoming as human beings and health care providers in caring communion is to be at home in ethos, love, charity and reconciliation.

    Seriously Funny: Animation, The Concealed Avant-Garde2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The progressive migration of the European avant-gardes to America in the late 1930s compelled an adjustment of modern art practice and theory to the new cultural environment and to the needs of the cultural institutions that supported them. This radical redefinition of modern art implied the construction of a modernist canon, one that became hegemonic after WWII with the institutionalization of a discourse of modernism strictly focused on the value of form and an adherence to medium specificity. Associated with cartoons, advertising, and with popular culture in general, animation was dismissed as kitsch.  Moreover, while modernist scholars widely acknowledged film as the modernist medium par excellence, they did not pay much attention to animation, which was relegated to the category of a minor, subsidiary cinematic genre.

    Inherently and unabashedly multidisciplinary (it encompasses and creatively blends painting, drawing, sculpture, film and many other artistic media), animation obdurately defied and still challenges disciplinary regulation. Animation and animation theory, developed in the interstices between modernist fields of practice and theorization such as art history and film studies, offer a unique standpoint from where to analyze modernism in art, the historiography of this discourse, and modernist theory itself.

    Titoism and the Idea of “The Third Road” as Ideological Foundation of Zagreb School for Animated Film2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Geographically, and ideologically, Yugoslavia stood on the border between two confronted blocks during the Cold War, but belonged to neither. The idea of ‘the third road’ was extremely popular; people really saw their country as an alternative to imperialist West and bureaucratic East.

    Yugoslav regime was rarely criticized for lack of democracy; it was more fiercely attacked by the nationalist right wing, which sheds much light on the catastrophe that happened after Tito’s death.

    Yugoslav film makers rarely confronted the system; they were mostly its ardent propagators. The ‘third road’ idea was popular even among the creators of Yugoslav’s best films – members of the Zagreb School of Animated film. Still, satire was an important element of Zagreb films, but the satirical razor was directed towards actual global problems, racism, colonialism, pollution, hunger, poverty, fear of the A-bomb, war, etc. Criticism was present, but it did not include social criticism. Yugoslav system was not only spared of criticism, it was, indirectly but indisputably, celebrated. The idea of a small, spiteful country existing on the borderline between two gigantic and hostile worlds was interwoven in many films made in the Zagreb studio. A small freedom oasis, surrounded by pressures, terror and danger, was an all-present motif in animated anecdotes of the leading school’s masters. A small man abused by his surrounding, who, despite the troubles, kept fighting for his way of life, his independence and neutrality was a common denominator of the authors of the Zagreb school, regardless of their artistic profile and their filmic and visual expression.

    Soon after Tito’s death in 1980, the idea of the ‘third road’ turned out to be completely ‘unrealistic reality’, just like La Grande Illusion. After Gorbachov, perestroika, the fall of the Berlin wall, and the end of the cold war, the idea of the ‘third road’ and a country in between lost its initial meaning. Yugoslavia lost its international position, and moreover, dissolved in a bloody war.

    Portfoliometoden: Ett pedagogiskt verktyg för att integrera teori och praktik i sjuksköterskeprogrammet2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Portfolio is a systematic, purposeful, consolidated and structured collection of study works that the teacher and students use to follow up the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes in some area. Work integrated learning (WIL) can be seen as a process and an educational strategy for an active exchange of knowledge, reflected action and lifelong learning. The purpose of this report is to describe and discuss portfolio as a pedagogical method and WIL as a pedagogical strategy in the clinical education in the nursing program at University West. One of the main ideas behind the WIL-portfolio method isthat students have the opportunity to take control of their learning and thereby become more active in the learning and better understand the generated learning. The WIL-portfolio can create opportunities for nursing students to develop professional skills, systematized by using the portfolio structure and content. WIL-portfolio methodical process consists of the six phases; prereflection, reflection-in-action, reflection-on-action, self-evaluation, metareflection and knowledge-in-action. WIL-portfolio can serve as a basis for reflection and become a mirror image of learning, both in the present and in the future. The WIL-portfolio method can thus contribute to a deeper understanding of one's own knowledge of the process of lifelong learning.
