  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The teaching and practice of democracy in schools might be considered particularly important in the present era as young people are spending increasing amounts of time in education. Upper secondary schools and universities are becoming more common post-school options than conventional workplaces. Consequently, the experience of democratic participation among the young people is strongly related to education spaces. Contemporary research shows the teaching of democratic values to typically emphasise individual freedom of choice and individual rights, at the expense of collective justice, political criticism and reflection. This risks leaving young people without guidance for how to exert influence both inside school and more generally. However, we lack knowledge about the relations between the content and organisation of teaching, and young people's attitudes and actions, as they typically constitute different research fields. This book attempts to help bridge this gap. Young people's influence and democratic education explores the teaching of democracy in school. In particular it relates to young peoples' responses and initiatives to change in formal education. Based on recent ethnographic investigations of Swedish upper secondary schools the book has been developed with a special focus on gender in relation to social background. Five differently gendered and classed upper secondary programmes were studied in detail. Theoretically, the book draws in particular on Bernsteinian and feminist perspectives. The book includes close individual analyses of the researched upper secondary classes as well as common presentations of previous research, theory and main empirical results. Central joint themes that are explored concerns teaching students to influence, student initiatives to exert influence, conditions for developing valued masculinities and femininities, the reproduction of hierarchical relations, and representations and relations of theory and practice.

  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Digital media have placed a focus on sustainability sustainability in terms of long-term digital preservation of societal memories and cultural heritage. There is also discussion about technological issues, such as flexible infrastructures, standards and formats sustainability in digital design standards, formats, practices, which are explored in relation to how to build sustainable systems (Braa et al. 2004; Byrne 2005; Byrne and Sahay 2007). Further, while there already exists a body of knowledge about standards, classification, and category work (e.g. Star 1991; Bowker and Star 1999; Verran et al. 2007), it is also important to relate these standards, formats and routines sustainability in digital design standards, formats, practices in digital design to social sustainability in digital design social and cultural sustainability in digital design cultural sustainability, and not just durability.

  • Hybrid collaborative art practices in contemporary public space
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Sala d'Art Jove 2009. - Barcelona : Generalitat de Catalunya Departament d’acció Social i Ciutadania. - 978-84-614-2870-0 ; s. 230-237
  • Konstnärligt arbete (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Do you see a capacity for transforming the city, its spaces or the use we make of them in artistic practice? Which public spaces do you use most day to day? Is there hope for the Santa Esperança public laundry? Do you think that Somanyprojects’ action has served to reactivate this space and awaken it in the town’s collective imaginary? Do you know of any other public space particular to women? What does the perspective of an artist offer us that an architect’s doesn’t consider when intervening in a space? What does a collaborative art practice consist of? Can an intervention of this type lead to some type of agencement on the part of the community? Would it be viable to consider more alternative uses of water such as public baths? How do you assess artistic practice as a work methodology for participatory urbanism projects? Would you be in favour of other activities being undertaken in public laundries besides washing clothing and the promotion of tourism? Are we very far off on the part of politicians from designing the cities where we want to live based on the needs of the citizens themselves? Do you have any questions for us? Do you have any questions for yourself?

  • Rethinking public space
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Re-Public. Re-Imagining Democracy. - Greece : http://www.re-public.gr/en. - 1791-857X. ; February 2011
  • Konstnärligt arbete (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • It seems as if the city, its space, its future, its production, were almost exclusively the result of a series of processes and flows taking place at unreachable distance, in un-known locations, mostly determined by the interests and wills of un-localized powers, actors and flows. As if the city could no longer be produced and shaped after the desires of its inhabitants, articulating one or another form of collective will. As if the city was no longer the soul and reason of urban politics but just the mere object of a kind of witty and hygienic managing that understands built space as a market and a product, placing economy at the very center of society.Urban agendas no longer include distributive and social considerations but focus now on economic growth, competitiveness and entrepreneurship. Creative flexibility, efficiency and strategic partnership exclude dissent, conflict and radical criticism nearly foreclosing the political from the face of the city. Cityspace anesthetized. Public space today is planned, designed, defined, segregated, policed, and set up in order to be easily controlled, ‘secured’, and ‘marketized’, in ways that lead to homogenous, uninteresting, smooth and clean surfaces that differ very much from the inherent characteristics of the very idea of public.

  • Rethinking public space
  • 2010
  • Konstnärligt arbete (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Rethinking Public Space is a research project by Marta Serra Permanyer and Alberto Altés Arlandis that tries to approach the diverse processes of production and transformation of contemporary public spaces as well the relationships that are often established between art, everyday life and the space of the city. The project, that takes a closer look at a series of interventions in the village of Caldes de Montbui (Barcelona) trying to reflect around the idea of hybrid collaborative art practice, has been possible thanks to a research grant obtained from the Sala’d’Art Jove de la Secretaria de Joventut de la Generalitat de Catalunya.The idea was submitted as a proposal to a call for projects during the year 2008 and was selected in the research category. The project has been carefully and attentively tutored by Montse Romaní, who has been able to provide her experience and help in a very generous way while supervising the project.

  • Implementering av energieffektiviseringsåtgärder i befintlig bebyggelse
  • 2010
  • Rapport (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • There is great potential to improve energy efficiency in existing Swedish residential buildings. However, the successful implementation of efficiency measures depends on economical and technical factors, as well as on the attitudes and perceptions of the relevant actors. A better understanding of their attitudes and perceptions may influence the design of suitable policy measures that increase the adoption of energy efficiency measures. In this context, we conducted mail-in surveys completed by owners of detached houses, chairmen of co-operative housing associations (bostadsrättsförening) and municipality energy advisers in Sweden. We also interviewed window sellers/installers in Jämtland.Results show that it was important for the majority of homeowners to reduce their household energy use, with most undertaking no-cost measures (e.g., switching off lights). However, 70–90% of the responding homeowners had no intention of adopting building envelope measures over the next 10 years. The main reason for non-adoption was that homeowners were satisfied with the physical condition and thermal performance of their existing building envelope components. Homeowners who thought their energy cost was high were more likely to adopt an investment measure compared to those who thought their energy cost was low. Investment costs and annual energy cost savings were the most important factors in adoption of energy efficient building envelope measures. Therefore, economic incentives may induce homeowners to adopt energy efficiency investment measures. However, a large percentage (64%) of homeowners was unaware of the existence of government support for reducing household energy use. Information campaigns announcing the availability of economic incentives and the cost advantages of energy efficiency measures may be helpful in the adoption decision.Homeowners‘ considered interpersonal sources, builders, installers and energy advisers as important sources of information for their adoption of energy efficiency measures. Though a large percentage of respondents considered energy advisers as an important source of information, only 14% of homeowners had contacted an energy adviser in the past. Our findings suggest that the energy advice service is important for homeowners, but more efforts are needed to increase homeowners‘ awareness of and satisfaction with such services. The majority of municipal energy advisers were of the opinion that more training in technical aspects of energy issues and increased financial support could improve their performance.Installers and material suppliers are important actors in homeowners‘ adoption of energy efficiency measures. For example, approximately 53% of responding homeowners to a survey in Jämtland/Västernorrland stated that the window seller/installer from whom they had bought windows had recommended a particular type of window, and 97% had iiinstalled the windows that were recommended. The window sellers/installers in Jämtland prefer a window that is ―reasonably‖ energy efficient. They believe that windows with a U-value of 1.2 W/m2K are good and there is no reason to further improve the energy efficiency. The majority did not recommend windows with U-value <1.2 W/m2K. They were concerned about the condensation issues and high prices of such windows. This may influence the diffusion of very energy efficient windows in Swedish detached houses.About 80-95% of chairmen in co-operative housing associations who responded to our survey had no intention of adopting building envelope measures over the next 10 years. They were satisfied with the existing building envelope components, which may be one of the reasons for this lack of intention. As in the case of owners of detached houses, economic factors, like annual energy cost savings and investment costs, guide the implementation of energy efficiency investment measures in co-operative housing associations. However, about 66% of the responding chairmen did not consider financial constraint as a barrier to implementing investment intensive energy efficiency measures. For 54% of the respondents limited in-house competency to evaluate the benefits of energy efficiency measures was the main barrier.The majority of owners of detached houses (80%) and chairmen of co-operative housing associations (70%) perceived that economic policy instruments, such as investment subsidies and tax deductions, would encourage them to implement energy efficiency measures. Other policy instruments, especially information instruments, were perceived as less effective. Among various information policies, increasing the frequency of meter reading received the highest approval with 38% of homeowners, whereas approximately 41% of housing association chairmen thought that individual metering of heating and hot water use could be effective. Approximately 30% of homeowners and housing association chairmen thought that energy declaration was effective.

  • History of Participatory Media : Politics and Publics, 1750-2000
  • 2011
  • Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This book argues for a historical perspective on issues relating to the notion of participatory media. Working from a broad concept of media – including essays on the 19th century press, early sound media, photography, exhibitions, television and the internet – the book offers a broad empirical approach to different modes of audience participation from the mid 19th century to the present. Using the insights from the historical case studies, the book also explores some of the key concepts in discussions on the politics of participation, arguing for a theoretical perspective sensitive to the asymmetries that characterize the distribution of agency in the relationship between media and users.Scholarly discussions on participatory media now occur in several fields. This book argues that all of these discussions are all too often obscured by a rhetoric of newness, assuming that participatory media is something unique in history, radical and revolutionary. By challenging the historiography implicit in this rhetoric, the book also engages in a discussion of issues of more general relevance to the multidisciplinary field of media history.

  • Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma genitalium, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, human papillomavirus, and polyomavirus are not detectable in human tissue with epithelial ovarian cancer, borderline tumor, or benign conditions
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. - 0002-9378. ; 202:1, s. 71.e1-71.e6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • OBJECTIVE: We sought to analyze the presence of the microorganisms Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma genitalium, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, human papillomavirus (HPV), and the polyomaviruses BK virus (BKV) and JC virus (JCV) in ovarian tissues of women with ovarian carcinomas, borderline tumors, and benign conditions. STUDY DESIGN: Ovarian tissue, snap-frozen and stored at -80 degrees C, from 186 women with benign conditions, borderline tumors, and epithelial ovarian cancer, as well as tissue from the contralateral ovary of 126 of these women, were analyzed regarding presence of C trachomatis and N gonorrhoeae (transcription mediated amplification), M genitalium (real-time polymerase chain reaction [PCR]), HPV (PCR), and BKV and JCV (PCR). RESULTS: All the tissue samples studied were found negative for the microorganisms analyzed. CONCLUSION: C trachomatis, M genitalium, N gonorrhoeae, HPV, and the polyomaviruses BKV and JCV are not detectable in ovarian tissues either from women with benign conditions and borderline tumors or from women with ovarian cancer.
