    Religion, Culture and Meaning-Making Coping: A Study Among Cancer Patients in Turkey2019In: Journal of religion and health, ISSN 0022-4197, E-ISSN 1573-6571, Vol. 58, no 4, p. 1115-1124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the present project has been to carry out international studies on meaning-making coping among people who have been affected by cancer in a number of societies and, thereby, to try to understand the influence of culture on use of these coping methods. Five countries—Sweden, South Korea, China, Japan, and Turkey—are included in the project. Qualitative semistructured interviews have been conducted with persons with a cancer diagnosis. The research group in each country has used, as a foundation, the interview questions developed for the Swedish study. These questions were, however, modified to better suite the sociocultural context of each participating country. The results presented here concern only Turkey and are restricted to religious coping methods. The study consists of 25 cancer patients (18 females and 7 males) between 20 and 71 years of age. The results of the study in Turkey indicated that the RCOPE (Religious Coping) methods are highly relevant for the interviewees. A sociological analysis of the study made from a cultural perspective showed clearly the importance of the idea of being tolerant (Sabr) for patients when coping with the psychological problems brought about by cancer. The study made it clear that culture plays an essential role in the choice of coping methods.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to explore how HR managers experience their own psychosocial work environment, concerning work satisfaction (motivation and communication). A qualitative study was carried out with seven semi-structured interviews and the collected material was analyzed from a basic thematic approach. In summary, the results indicated that HR managers experienced their psychosocial work environment as good, despite high demands and periods of stress. The opportunity to have contact with, and to work with, people were of great importance to HR managers' job satisfaction. Moreover, the results showed that the experience of the manager's role provided good conditions to deal with stress and leadership.

    Cyberbullying from students’ perspectives: a qualitative study2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of cyberbullying is a phenomenon that has increased due to the accessibility internet provides and through modern technologies such as; smartphones, iPads and computers. The aim of this study is to investigate the experiences of cyberbullying and prevention strategies among a group of senior high school students. The research questions were: How do the interviewed students experience the extent and the consequences of cyberbullying? What methods and strategies could be used in order to prevent cyberbullying, according to the interviewed students? Four focus groups with students from two senior high schools in Gävle were performed. The results were analyzed from two theoretical perspectives; empowerment and social constructivism. The result showed that the students regarded it important for the schools to involve the students in the prevention work against cyberbullying. The students also described a need of educating teachers about this new phenomena of cyberbullying. Suggestions on how to tackle the issue were made, based on the students’ experiences of prevention methods provided by schools.

    Vulnerability, gender and resistance in transnational academic mobility2018In: Tertiary Education and Management, ISSN 1358-3883, E-ISSN 1573-1936, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 254-265Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Focusing on Tanzanian and Mozambican PhD students funded by Swedish development aid, this article investigates how everyday academic work life is gendered in Sweden and in the students’ home academic departments. In particular, it focuses on the role of ‘important others’, such as international donors, universities, colleagues and family, in enhancing or alleviating vulnerability and how this shifts across spatial contexts. Integral to this is exploring how obstacles are managed and negotiated by PhD students, and how they articulate capability and therefore resist a position as a victim. The results indicate the glonacality of vulnerability as something that stretches over institutional and national boundaries, and how vulnerability can be (re)produced at local university level despite the good intentions of donors and universities operating at a global level. In addition, a translocational and intersectional perspective highlights how situations of vulnerability are gendered and radicalised differently in different academic contexts.

    The influence of Social Media: A Qualitative Study Researching if Social Media has an influence on Women between the ages of 18 - 252017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the research was to study if social media usage had any influence on women between the ages of 18 – 25. The research questions answered were: How does Social Media influence young women? How do young women perceive their usage of SM related to their interaction with people? The study was qualitative and made five deep one-on-one interviews, held with semi-structured questions and used convenience sampling. The literature consisted of five articles related to the topic and the theoretical framework used was the social constructionist theory and the top-down, bottom-up factors theory. The results found in the study were that these women were influenced by SM on how they look upon their bodies. Further, news and companies influence the participants through SM in negative manners, but at the same time they experience SM as a great tool of communication. Thematic analysis was used when analysing.

    Islam i Sverige: självbild bland nyanlända och svenskarnas syn på islam2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats behandlar hur nyimmigrerade muslimer upplever att de har blivit bemötta i Sverige samt hur svenskar tänker kring den muslimska ökningen som skett under de senare åren i Sverige. För att skapa en förståelse för hur de upplever varandra har det genomförts intervjuer för att på så sätt betrakta om det förekommer fördomar eller rädsla bland svenska medborgare och nyimmigrerade muslimer gentemot varandra.

    Min metod är kvalitativ i form av personliga intervjuer där resultaten tolkas utifrån attributionsteorin samt Arne Trankells teori om de annorlunda och därefter jämförs detta med tidigare forskning. Resultatet av min undersökning visade en bredare kunskap hos svenskarna om islam tillskillnad från hur det har varit tidigare. Detta kunde man även se genom de muslimska nyimmigrerade informanternas svar, deras intryck av hur de blivit bemötta av de svenska folket visade att de var nöjda och tacksamma.
