Abstract [en]

The term Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is connected to knowledge production. It is as central in organizing ways of combining academic studies with working life as in abstract reasonings on how knowledge in itself should be understood. Any facilitation of WIL-based education carries an idea of knowledge production and its relation to what knowledge is, while any theory of knowledge and knowledge production include, implicitly or explicitly, understandings of what processes knowledge and knowledge production are related to. Even though it may not always make it to the surface, the negotiation between these different strands is unavoidable in any WIL endeavor.

This presentation is concerned with such a negotiation over time. It concerns the development and construction of a master program in work integrated political studies. The program is a collaboration between University West in Sweden and the University of the Western Cape in South Africa. After several years of work, both collaborative and independently, the program is set to be launched in the fall of 2020. In this sense we now have a result of the first part of the negotiation (it will naturally continue in the actual realization of the program). But how did we get to where we are? Why did we get to where we are? What was involved in the construction of WIL in the field of political studies?

From the theoretical perspective of the social construction and character of science, I analyze – through participatory observations and close readings of documents – both how definitions and understandings came to be and what these definitions came to include. The analysis shows that a multilayered collective process, not even always made conscious or manifest, is involved and that it is set in everyday surroundings. This discussion is then taken a step further. WIL has now been installed as a discipline in which you can receive a doctoral degree at University West. I argue that the process behind the establishment of this degree and WIL's disciplinary status as well as content constitute a relevant and fruitful case from the perspective of theory of science. Big questions often loom large in small proceedings.

Abstract [en]

In the late 1980s and early 1990s the Swedish welfare state underwent a crisis which led to a transformation of society that has continued up until today. The main node of this has been an adjustment to the global ideological trend of privatization and individualism with a down-sized public sector ruled by market logic. Parallel with this Sweden has also changed from being relatively mono- cultural to becoming a more multicultural nation. Throughout these processes one constant has been how the memory  of the traditional Swedish welfare state has been used and fought over by different political parties. This article deals with the struggle to appropriate this memory.

The Social Democrats, in power for most of the twentieth century, are seen as the architects of the Folkhem (“The Home of the People”). But it was also the Social Democrats who – under pressure from global economy – initiated the neoliberal transformation through a series of decisions in the 1980s. Rhetorically they have treated this in two ways: one is through arguing that nothing really changed and one is through pointing out how much has changed but without acknowledging their own part in it. The ruling right-wing party The Moderates has done so through changing their rhetoric from criticizing the  Social  Democratic  welfare  state  to  now  being  the only ones representing its core values and the only ones capable of adapting them to a new situation. Furthermore, the Folkhem-metaphor has also been central for the xenophobic far-right (Sweden Democrats), claiming that the demise of the welfare state is the result of excessive immigration.

Abstract [en]

Many Roma people in Sweden are on the margins of society and face problems of social exclusion, institutional discrimination, low education, unemployment, and poor health. The aim is to describe how a group of Roma people, in West Sweden, understand health, well-being, and quality of life within the Roma context, and how they cope with their life-situation. Data consisted of qualitative interviews. The data were analyzed qualitatively using a phenomenological hermeneutic approach. The respondents mainly understood the concept of Health as "being healthy" and "feeling good". Elements that were crucial part of the respondents' health perception were being employed, having an education, social support from family and friends, freedom and security, and the extent of involvement in society. The results indicate that the respondents perceive their health and life situation as good, despite of their marginalized situation and discrimination.

Abstract [sv]

Denna forskningsrapport är en antologi som består av fem längre texter. Dess syfte som helhet är att visa på möjligheten i och det fruktbara med att betrakta film och filmproduktion ur ett kulturvetenskapligt perspektiv. De olika texterna kan läsas separat som enskilda bidrag till detta forskningsfält, men kan också relateras till varandra och på det sättet ge en bild av den mångfald detta fält innehåller. Antologin behandlar följande ämnen: relationen mellan film och ideologi, bilden av regissören och dess relation till den så kallade auteurmyten, etnografiska perspektiv på filmarbete och filmarbarbetare, skildringen av droger på film ur ett ANT-perspektiv samt filmatisering av litterära texter. Medverkande forskare är Fredrik Sunnemark, Carina Kullgren, Margaretha Herrman, Eddy Nehls och Åke Persson, alla verksamma vid Högskolan Väst.
