Existentialismen är en sociologi : en essä om sociologi i en fragmenterad samtid

The purpose of this essay is to discuss the base of Sociology from an existentialistic perspective. The discussion takes it's position in the debate on the crisis of Sociology, and aligns with Alvin Gouldner's understanding of the crisis. Gouldner believed that the crisis of Sociology was mirrored in a sociological method that failed to describe the social reality that it meant to describe; a lack in self-criticism and self-reflexivity, a lack in self-containment in relation to state interests and a lack in moral engagement. This raises a number of questions, which I discuss in the essay. What is the role of Sociology in our society? How shall we form a method that responds to the social reality that we sociologists aim to describe? How can we make Sociology more moral?Existentialism offers a starting point to describe these questions.

Gränsöverskridande Ljuddesign

Transcending sound design is possible. There are unseen possibilities and a great potential for improvement and development in sound and music design ? but there is a great difficulty penetrating the obstacles that lies in the way for such development to take place and to exist. The difficulties in being negotiable and productive lies more within the limits of the audience it has to gain, than in itself. It is as though music and sound design has to evolve very slowly, in an almost evolutionary style; one step at a time, to be accepted.

Syftet med vårt arbete är att bidra med en kritisk diskussion om nytta och funktion av praktiskt jämställdhetsarbete i en samtida arbetslivskontext. Frågeställningen blir därmed: Hur fungerar jämställdhetsarbetet inom det undersökta kvinnliga nätverket; Vad är bra, vad är problematiskt, och hur kan det bli bättre?

I arbetet kommer vi fram till att nätverket har en potential, då man från företagets sida satsar tid, pengar och kraft på nätverksarbetet.

Vad är viktig kunskap i Samhällskunskap? : En analys av läraruppfattningar

Title: What is important knowledge in social studies- An analyse of opinions among teachers in social studiesThe aim of this paper is to increase the awareness about how teachers in Social studies think about goals and substance in the subject. I also want to get a picture about what kinds of problems teacher?s experiences when teaching Social studies. My expectations told me that Social studies are complex to teach, because it derives from several university disciplines such as Political science, Economics, Sociology, Law and Geography, which I believe makes the subject harder to define and what to give priority to. Finally, I want to increase the awareness, if it seems to be any fundamental essence in Social studies as a subject.To achieve my goals with this paper I have studied relevant literature about Social studies.

Dinosaurier i Kurdistan pratar kurdiska : En studie i hur barn i förskolan tänker om och uttrycker sin flerspråkighet

This is an ethnographically inspired study focusing on multilingualism in a Swedish preschool setting. The purpose of the study was to find out how the children perceived their multilingualism and how it was expressed by the children in the interaction with teachers and peers. The research questions were as follows: How is the multilingualism expressed in the day to day interaction in preschool? What significance does the daily interaction with peers and educators have for the children?s perceptions of their multilingualism? How do the children perceive their multilingualism and the value in their multilingual abilities?  To answer these question methods inspired by ethnographical studies were used, namely participant observation and semi-structured interviews with the children.   Theory was used from two areas; childhood Sociology as theorized by Corsaro with the ideas of peer cultures and interpretive reproduction, and the Sociology of language with the theory of collaborative empowerment as introduced and developed by Cummins. The children in the study were seen as social actors who are important here and now and who contribute to the development of society.   The study showed that the multiple languages were visible in the preschool, but that the Swedish language was upheld as the norm and the language of communication; no children were recorded playing in their ?home language? during interaction with other children.
