This book was released on 2011-12-26 with total page 173 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More than half a million Swedes – one in twenty – is of Finnish descent. This book explores Finnishness, multilingualism and identities of young people with Finnish background in Sweden. What does it mean to grow up in a Finnish family in Sweden? Who are ‘real Finns’ and what does it take to be(come) one? Is a shared minority language essential for the survival of the minority, or can a minority culture stay viable without it? What is Finnishness and who, in the end, can define ethnicity? How to make sense of, and how to present interviews that are rich with imitations of accents, jokes and laughter? Representations of Finnishness is Sweden is an ethnographic interview study in the domain of applied language studies. This book is aimed at readers interested in sociolinguistics, linguistic ethnography, and the study of identities. Interviewees’ voices take a central position in this book and interview excerpts are used not only as illustrations, but also serve as starting points for discussing broader theoretical concepts.
Download or read Getting Intimate PDF, written by Linn Sandberg and published by Linköping University Electronic Press. This book was released on 2011-04-08 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This thesis focuses on the intersections of masculinity, old age and sexuality from the perspectives of old men themselves, how they understand and experience sex and sexuality in later life. The study uses qualitative in-depth interviews and body diaries, an exploratory method that asked men write about their bodies in everyday life. Twenty-two men, born between 1922 and 1942, participated in the study. The aim of the thesis is two-fold: firstly, to study sexual subjectivities of old men, how old men articulate and make meaning around sexuality in later life. Secondly, the study aims to explore theoretically what a male body may become in relation to ageing; in what ways the ageing male body could be a site for rethinking masculinity and the male body. This aim was inspired by feminist theories in dialogue with the deleuzian concept becoming. Similarly to gender, age is understood to take shape and become intelligible in social and cultural contexts. Furthermore, the thesis stresses the significance of the specificities of the ageing body to the shaping of masculinity, sexuality and subjectivity. The body is therefore discussed as an “open materiality”, beyond the binaries of culture and nature/materiality. This thesis discusses the concepts intimacy and touch as central to how old men’s sexual subjectivities take shape, allowing for alternative conceptualisations of sexuality beyond erection and intercourse. Intimacy and touch are understood and discussed in several different ways. By orienting themselves to touch and intimacy the old men emerged as more mature, unselfish and with more serene sexual desires. This also involved them distancing themselves from the younger man/other men, whom they perceived as more selfish, inconsiderate and with stronger sexual desires. Intimacy and touch could in this respect be understood as resources for shaping desirable heterosexual masculinity. An orientation to intimacy and touch enabled old men to appear as neither asexual nor as “dirty” old men. But the study also suggests that a turn to intimacy and touch may open up possibilities for rethinking and reconfiguring sexuality, masculinity and the male body. The ageing body then need not be understood as an obstacle but as an enabling site that provides opportunities for intimacy and touch. Moreover, the thesis presents affirmative old age as an alternative conceptualisation of old age, beyond both the discourses of successful ageing and the discourses of old age as negativity and decline. As a theory of difference and bodily specificity, affirmative old age may be of interest for further feminist theorising.

Book excerpt: Seriemördare härjar bland Malmös utslagna En iskall vinter har lamslagit Malmö. Journalisten Leyla Abdallah ska snart återgå till jobbet på morgontidningen efter sin mammaledighet när hon får ett erbjudande som hon inte kan tacka nej till. Stiftelsen Vitanova driver ett lovordat kvinnohärbärge och ger henne fria händer att skriva en bok om stadens hemlösa och utslagna. Leyla blir djupt engagerad i projektet. När en känd heroinist hittas död i sin knarkarkvart avskriver polisen det som en överdos. Men Leyla misstänker att något annat ligger bakom. Snart påträffas en uteliggare död, med en makaber dikt skriven i sin panna, och det står klart att en seriemördare härjar i staden. Dikten aviserar fler mord och polisen tvekar inte att dra igång en omfattande mördarjakt mitt i julruschen. Samtidigt kämpar Leyla på sitt håll mot klockan för att stoppa förövaren. Till slut står hon öga mot öga med mördaren. Av jord är du kommen är en spännande kriminalroman om utsatthet, svek och hämnd. Den skildrar hur gamla mönster av brott mot kvinnor och barn upprepar sig, och vad som kan hända när någon bestämmer sig för att bryta den kedjan. Boken är en fristående fortsättning på Låt barnen komma till mig som Forum gav ut år 2008. Här har huvudpersonen Leyla Abdallah fått sonen Viktor och flyttat ihop med sin svenskfödde pojkvän Tom. Men familjelyckan grusas av att Leylas irakiske pappa i Rosengård inte kan acceptera Tom och vägrar att träffa den lilla familjen.

Download or read Swedish PDF, written by Gladys Hird and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 1980-03-13 with total page 284 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This grammar-reader is based on almost twenty years' experience of teaching beginners the Swedish language and is reassuringly practical in approach. Miss Hird's aims are threefold: to provide a compromise between the traditional grammar-readers and the new textbooks which are not designed for beginners outside Sweden; to supply grammatical information and exercises and reading texts together for ease of reference; and to stimulate the student's interest in Swedish life, institutions and culture. The grammar part of the book is in seventeen lessons, each comprising a text in Swedish which Miss Hird has specially composed to include useful vocabulary and graded grammatical points upon which exercises (including translation exercises) are set for practice. The central theme of the texts is Stockholm, and attractive drawings illustrate it. To help the student, there is a full vocabulary list covering all the lessons, a brief summary of Swedish grammar, a glossary of grammatical terms, a check list of irregular verbs and a comprehensive index of the grammatical points covered in the book. In the reader part of the book, the texts chosen range from a short play by Strindberg to a sketch by Stig Claesson, one of Sweden's most popular contemporary authors. Each text is preceded by a short biographical and literary introduction and is followed by questions designed to test the student's comprehension and to stimulate his appreciation.

Download or read Passages Westward PDF, written by Maria Lähteenmäki and published by Suomalaisen Kirjallisuuden Seura. This book was released on 2006-12-27 with total page 247 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The West has always been a resource for the Finns. Scholars, artists and other professionals have sought contacts from Europe throughout the centuries. The Finnish experience in Western Europe and the New World is a story of migrant laborers, expatriates and specialists working abroad. But you don’t have to be born in Finland to be a Finn. The experiences of second-generation Finnish immigrants and their descendants open up new possibilities for understanding the relationship between Finland and the West. The Finnish passage westward has not always crossed national borders. Karelian evacuees headed west, as did young people from the Finnish countryside when opportunities to make a living in agriculture and forestry diminished in the post-war era. The legacy of these migrants is still visible in the suburbs of Finnish cities today. This book is a joint effort of the Department of Ethnology and the Department of History at the University of Helsinki. It was written by Ph. D. students supervised by Academy Research Fellows Maria Lähteenmäki and Hanna Snellman, in collaboration with colleagues abroad interested in current research in ethnology and history.

Download or read Oppressed Pride PDF, written by Khalid Rashid and published by Khalid Rashid. This book was released on 2013-05-31 with total page 70 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Honour related violence and oppression is a relatively new phenomenon in Sweden that received political and medial attention in the 1990's. A lot of research has been made since then in order to understand the phenomenon and to improve the interventions against it. Most of the focus have been on women under HRVO, which stands for the majority who falls victim for this crime. This study aims to bring forth more shades of this phenomenon by exploring how professionals identify and give recognition to the needs, vulnerabilities and obstacles for sexual minorities who seeks aid from public services, as they've become targets for patriarchal violence and oppression. This is done by presenting three different vignettes of LGBTQ persons who are exposed to different forms of HRVO during semi-structured interviews. Twelve respondents from three different professional categories were interviewed: social welfare officers, counsellors and housing personnel. The participants in the interviews varied from one up to four simultaneously. The gathered results tells of several important aspects in the work with HRVO cases, among them are: refreshing and enhancing the professional's knowledge, being able to adapt to the client's needs and to grant a safe environment for the client during the ongoing assessment. The results also show difficulties for the professionals, such as facing conflicting legislation, whether HRVO is seen as a patriarchal phenomenon or a cultural relativistic phenomenon and high workload.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Det var något med Oogy som gjorde honom speciell. Kanske var det att han saknade ett öra, kanske hans asymmetriska ansikte eller hans ivriga, energiska sätt att komma oss till mötes. Vad det än var, lyckades han övertyga Larry Levin och hans två söner, Dan och Noah, att adoptera honom och ta med honom hem samma dag. En olycksalig, ful valp som hade använts som "bait dog" för träning av kamphundar, men mirakulöst överlevt efter att polisen hittat honom blodig och sönderbiten. Vanligtvis avlivar man hundar som denna, men av någon anledning opererades istället valpen och kunde så småningom få ett nytt liv hos familjen Levin. Namnet valpen fick var Oogy - en kärleksfull uttalsvariant av ordet "ugly" - ful. "En fantastisk historia om en oförglömlig hund. Gör plats i ditt hjärta, för du kommer bli förälskad i Oogy. Och i denna bok." GARY DAVID GOLDBERG, skapare av Fem i familjen och författare av boken Sit, Ubu, Sit "Oogys historia bekräftar det Dewey lärt mig - att ett djur, även om det är skadat och på alla sätt uträknat, kan sprida otroligt mycket glädje då det hamnar i en kärleksfull familj."
