    Of chaos and internal fire: the quest for nothingness by lyrical manifestations of re-interpreted Gnostic thought2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay researches the prevalence of Gnostic influences in contemporary music lyrics, more exclusively within the context of the extreme metal scene. A resurgence of such topics has also been evident in contemporary music; not surprisingly, as music in general is part of the foundations of culture, and in a wider aspect, of society at large. The essay is performed using a hermeneutic method, interpreting music lyrics and discussing them from a background of cultural and religious theory. The purposes of researching the influences of Gnosticism in this environment are to determine the presence of Gnostic thought in extreme metal lyrics, research the eventual re-interpretations of historical sources of Gnosticism, and to discuss the acknowledged Gnostic influences in the displayed art form in a contemporary cultural perspective, related to cultural aspects such as secularization, modernity and globalization.

    Sources include music lyrics appropriate to the subject matter at hand as well as previously published interviews.

    The results of the investigation demonstrate that there are multiple interpretations of Gnostic thought apparent in extreme metal lyrics, varying from slight re-interpretations to more extensive ones, as apparent in what is identified as a chaos-gnostic current. The Gnostic material has in the latter scenario been integrated into an originally satanic worldview and as a result has become a major part of the chaos-gnostic belief system. The chaos-gnostic current has appeared in a highly secular surrounding, and the results of the essay propose that a secular surrounding can breed elements of trangression within individuals, leading to the resurgence of oppositional counter-cultural characteristics and an awakening of alternative spirituality with oppositional overtones.

    Kultur på recept: En litteraturstudie om kultur som allternativ behandlingsmetod inom hälso- och sjukvården2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The literaturestudy was to examine culture as a treatment and cultures effect on health. A strategic selection was performed and eight articles were selected from the database Discovery, through the library at the University of Gävle, given the study's purpose. A variety of audience and cultural activity as a treatment were selected. The results showed that culture has positive health effects on humans, both physically and mentally. Culture is stress-reducing, gives a sense of belonging, and a change of mind to see the world from a new perspective. The results also showed that people can manage their lives better and make greater effort to integrate more social. Culture is seen therefore as an appropriate treatment or/ and adjunct to medication for all audiences, especially for people with mental impairments and for individuals with physical illness or disability.

    Musikhandledning: - Ett pedagogiskt verktyg i förskoleverksamheten2019Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte är att skapa ett pedagogiskt redskap i form av en musikhandledning för att ge förskollärare och andra yrkesverksamma ett hjälpmedel för lärande och utveckling i musikaktiviteter med barn. Musikhandledningen har utformats för att uppmärksamma barns utveckling i samband med musik och har sedan prövats och utvärderats av åtta förskoleavdelningar. Förskollärare och barnskötare på avdelningarna har besvarat en enkät och deras åsikter har sedan analyserats och diskuterats. Resultaten visar att musikhandledningen gav inspiration samt underlättade för musikaktiviteter tillsammans med barn och kan användas som ett återkommande pedagogiskt redskap i förskoleverksamheten.
