    Öppna test jämfört med blindtest: Hur påverkas lyssnarens bedömning?2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna undersökning söker ett svar på hur den relativt vana lyssnarens bedömning av ljudkvalitet påverkas av ett så kallat öppet test, där det som bedöms är känd för lyssnaren, jämfört med ett blindtest, där detta objekt är okänt. Frågan appliceras på kvalitetsbedömningen av digitala kodningstekniker, d.v.s. hur lyssnaren påverkas av att valet av kodningsteknik som avlyssnas är känd eller inte. För att ta reda på detta genomfördes ett lyssningstest med nio deltagare. Deltagarna fick betygssätta perceptuellt kodade ljudfiler mot en känd referens, både som ett blindtest samt i ett öppet test. Resultatet är mångtydigt och inga generella slutsatser för hur lyssnaren påverkas av ett öppet test jämfört med ett blindtest går att uppfatta. Resultatet visar dock att påverkan ett öppet test har på lyssnarens bedömning är högst individuell. Lyssningstest i form av blindtest bör därför användas för att uppnå pålitligast resultat.

    Challenging the supernatural in the Chinese traditional law: Comparison of Judge Dee and van Gulik’s translation2017In: Law and humanities, ISSN 1752-1483, E-ISSN 1752-1491Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Robert van Gulik translated the detective stories of Judge Dee (Dee Gong An), however, he did not translate everything in the original text. He omitted some parts and rewrote them to suit the appetites of western readers. These parts in the translation reveal important messages regarding the translator’s evaluation of the original text.

    Therefore, this present paper aims 1) to compare the translation and the original text to illuminate ideas regarding the supernatural in law; and 2) to examine whether the original text really needed to be revised by the translator or, in fact, some legal ideas in traditional Chinese law questioned by the translator have already been presented in the original text.

    Var Dags Brus: En inblick i ljudkänsliga personers vardag2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en kvalitativ undersökning om icke diagnostiserad ljudkänslighet. Syftet är att skildra den subjektiva upplevelsen av ljudkänslighet hos ljudkänsliga personer. Tolv informanter har svarat på ett frågeformulär rörande sin upplevelse som ljudkänslig och hur detta påverkar vardagen. Studiens resultat visar att faktorer som stress, sömnproblem och starka ljud bidrar till ökad känslighet. Strategier för att hantera ljudkänsligheten i vardagen presenteras. Vanligaste strategierna är att undvika miljöer med hög ljudnivå, att använda hörselskydd eller hörlurar med musik samt att eftersträva tystnad då man vistas i sin hemmiljö. Studien belyser också i stort hur ljud kan påverka oss både fysiskt och psykiskt.

    Nationella minoriteter i historieundervisningen: bilder av romer i Utbildningsradions program under perioden 1975-20132015Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2000 when Sweden signed the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities the Roma minority became one of the acknowledged national minorities in the country. It meant that the rights of the Roma mi-nority would be safeguarded and the knowledge of its history and culture would be spread. In that context, the Swedish school, with its founded as-signment of democracy, was given an important role. The education was to communicate the multicultural values of the society and to make visible the history and culture of the Roma minority.

    The school books used in teaching today do not meet these demands. The view of the Roma minority given in school books is often inadequate and simplified. The present study will therefore examine a different type of edu-cational material used in schools and teaching, The Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company‟s programs of history and social studies regarding the Roma minority. Starting in postcolonial theory as well as critical dis-course analysis the study examines how the picture of the Roma cultural and ethnic identity in the Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company‟s material has been displayed and possibly changed during the period of 1975 to 2013.

    The results show a picture of Roma which, both in form and content, con-sists of some clearly demarcated discursive categories. The obvious continui-ty of the categories gives a picture of static and invariable Roma identity. At the same time this unambiguous picture is broken both by giving the existing discourses new meaning and also adding new discourses. The complexity and nuances become more prominent and the Roma identity is integrated in common Swedish history telling. The changes in the view of Roma, given by the Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company, can mainly be explained by the change of the Swedish immigration and minority policy and, as a conse-quence of this, the change of the school‟s mission regarding knowledge communication of Sweden as a multicultural country.

    Embracing Hungarian: Top-down emancipation of an immigrant language in Finland2011In: International Journal of the Sociology of Language, ISSN 0165-2516, E-ISSN 1613-3668, no 209, 75-90 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The term “language emancipation” has to date been mainly used in the context of historical minority languages and underprivileged vernaculars. The aim of the present article is to discuss the extension of this concept to other language categories and in this case, an immigrant language. It focuses on the situation of Hungarians and Hungarian in Finland and discusses the relevance of language emancipation in this context. The factors which are concentrated on are: first, the long history of cultural relations between Hungarians and Finns; second, the situation of Hungarian at various levels of education in Finland; and third, the attitudes towards Hungarian on the part of the majority society as well as the Hungarians themselves. The situation of Hungarian in Finland is special compared with other immigrant languages because Hungarian was part of the Finnish nationalist language emancipation. This historical heritage still seems to positively affect the status of Hungarians and the Hungarian language in Finnish society as reflected in a recent sociolinguistic study carried out among second generation Hungarians in Finland. Both official support from the state level and the favorable attitudes among majority language speakers contribute to the privileged status of Hungarians among immigrant groups in Finland.

    Hungarians in Finland and Sweden: Comparison of some sociocultural and demographic factors on language choice, culture and identity2012In: Finnish Yearbook of Population Research, ISSN 1796-6183, E-ISSN 1796-6191, no 47, 5-30 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article provides an overview of some sociocultural and demographic factors of language maintenance and shift among Hungarians in Finland and Sweden, predominately at the group level. Some of the factors described are: the historical background of Hungarian immigration, settlement patterns, demographic development, geographical areas, participation in Hungarian associations along with the attitudes of the majority group towards Hungarians and the Hungarian language. After this some data is presented about language choice, culture and identity of second-generation Hungarians. The article shows that Hungarians are not a single unified group in Sweden or Finland and both groups face factors that can support or hinder the preservation of the Hungarian language and culture. Swedish-Hungarians have a greater ability to preserve their Hungarianism as a group due to population size and concentration in certain areas, while Finnish-Hungarians can maintain their Hungarian identity due to their comparably high status in society and the positive attitudes of the Finnish majority.

    Editorial intentions and viewer perceptions: An audiovisual methodology for studying film editing and eye movements2016In: Visual Methodologies. A postdisciplinary journal., ISSN 2040-5456, Vol. 4, no 2, 13-33 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents an audio-visual methodology, VOSMET, designed to address activities of the craft of film editing, with a focus on the use of perception, and its implications. The methodology employs 13 different visual aspects and five different audio aspects, starting with video-recording observations of an editor, and ending with the analysis of eye-tracking data from film viewers. Craft research needs methodologies that address craft activities and cognitive approaches. Design practices share a similar need for reaching deeper understanding. It is neither established how film editors achieve perceptual precision in continuity editing in practice. The VOSMET methodology simultaneously captures bodily actions, utterances, software events, and keystrokes, along with the audiovisual material under processing, and uses graphics to distinguish between what takes place. The methodology also contributes by grasping what a film editor attends to, how this attention functions, as well as how perceptual factors are handled by the film editor. Finally, the methodology can evaluate editorial intentions against film viewer perceptions.

    Hantering av arbetsbelastning och stress inom förskolan: En kvalitativ studie baserad på intervjuer med pedagoger i förskolan2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta arbete har varit att få större insikt i hur en hälsosam arbetssituation kan skapas i förskolan genom att studera förskolepedagogers tankar kring och hanterande av arbetsbelastning och eventuell arbetsrelaterad stress utifrån studiens huvudsakliga frågeställning: hur hanterar de intervjuade pedagogerna arbetsbelastning och eventuell arbetsrelaterad stress? Jag har närmat mig undersökningsområdet med en kvalitativ ansats baserad på intervjuer med två förskollärare från olika förskolor. Som teoretiska redskap för tolkning av studiens resultat har jag använt mig av Sjödins (2012) forskning kring stress i förskolan, Lidholts (1999) hanteringsstrategier samt copingteori. Studien visar att de intervjuade pedagogerna arbetar förebyggande för att skapa en lugnare arbetsmiljö samt reflekterar kring hur situationer med hög arbetsbelastning kan lösas. Vidare förekommer i studien anpassningsstrategier, motstånds- eller kampstrategier samt problem- och känslofokuserad coping som redskap för att hantera arbetets belastning och arbetsrelaterad stress.

    Exploring knowledge of music in multimodal narrative settings2013In: Multimodalities: Book of abstracts, 2013, 14-14 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Music, used for narrative purposes in multimodal settings such as film, television and computer games is becoming one of the largest sources of musical experience in contemporary society. Although typically experienced on an unconscious and unreflected level, this kind of music actively contributes narrative meaning in multimodal interplay with other representational modes such as moving image, speech and sound effects. It seems that by engaging in social activities such as watching movies and playing computer games, we learn how to make sense of such musical functions, gaining knowledge necessary for interpreting stories multimodally told (Wingstedt, Brändström & Berg, 2010). A study was performed to make available for observation representations of knowledge, what could be described as ‘evidence of learning‘ of musical narrative functions (Wingstedt, 2008; Wingstedt, Brändström & Berg, 2008). A software tool (REMUPP) was designed, where seven musical parameters (semiotic resources of music) could modify musical expression in real time. Twenty-three participants, 12-13 years old, were given the task of designing music to fit different 3D-animated visual settings. They also answered a questionnaire giving information about their musical training and media habits. After each session they were interviewed in a stimulated recall situation, where they commented on their achieved musical expressions. Numerical data from the software was used to analyse textual aspects of the musical expressions, actualising ideational and interpersonal meanings. This was combined with analyses of the interviews and results of the questionnaires. The results indicated clearly expressed knowledge of culturally available musical narrative conventions. Combining analyses of the verbal expressions with the musical expressions contributed to a fuller and more nuanced account of the participants’ expressed musical knowledge. The results showed strong correlations to factors such as the participants’ musical backgrounds and habits of playing computer games and watching movies – highlighting the impact of the increasing availability of narrative media on our attitudes and knowledge.

    Ideational meaning potentials of narrative media music2012In: 6th International Conference on Multimodality: Abstracts, 2012, 130-130 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The question of musical meaning has been controversial and much debated over the years, especially music’s ability to express any kind of ‘content’ or ideational meaning. Wingstedt (2005, 2008) and Wingstedt et al. (2010) have discussed how narrative media music (music in film, computer games etc) can be categorized into six basic narrative functions: the informative, descriptive, emotive, guiding, rhetorical and temporal functions. These can in turn be put in relation to Halliday’s three metafunctions of communicational meaning (ideational, interpersonal, textual). This paper/presentation will discuss how narrative media music can express ideational meanings in defined narrative contexts, in interaction with other modes such as moving image, speech and sound design. The ideational metafunction is the content dimension of communication, representing what goes on in the world, ‘who does what, with or to whom and where’ (Kress et al, 2001:9). In multimodal narrative settings, music will typically contribute ideational meaning by informative and descriptive functions. In performing informative functions, music will often make use of culturally known and recognizable features expressed through different genres or specific musical compositions or performances. Typical examples are how music is used to establish cultural settings, as when playing ‘French music’ when a filmic narrative cuts to a location set in Paris – or using musical style to convey certain time periods or to indicate social events or status. The descriptive functions of narrative media music are akin to programme music, a type of art music attempting to render an extra-musical setting or narrative. This includes setting out to metaphorically describe attributes of physical atmosphere or environment, such as ‘the ocean’, ‘the pastoral’ or ‘the city’ – or by mimetically expressing physical movement, a technique that, when emphasized, is known as Mickey Mousing. Also, expressing mental processes or ‘observed emotions’ (rather than ‘experienced’), can be seen as descriptive functions of music. Musical narrative tools such as the use of leitmotifs (a recurring motif associated with characters, places or ideas of the narrative) will function on both an informative and descriptive level, symbolically representing a specific phenomenon and at the same time describing its attributes. The dramaturgical position of the music as being either diegetic (part of the spatio-temporal world of the story) or non-diegetic will also affect how ideational meaning is manifested. The different functions will be illustrated by using examples from various film scenes.
