  • The distribution of main and embedded structures: V2 and non-V2 orders in North Germanic 

    Westendorp, Maud (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2022-03-30)
    North Germanic has Verb Second (V2) word order in main but not embedded clauses. Although as a first approximation V2 is a phenomenon characteristic of root clauses, it has long been known that it occurs also in a restricted set of embedded clauses in many, if not all, of the North Germanic languages. Moreover, a wide variety of Norwegian dialects allow deviations from the standard V2 word order in ...
  • Rural Pupils Making their Way through the Norwegian Education System: Enablements, Constraints and Agency in a Northern Norwegian Context 

    Stenseth, Anna-Maria (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2022-03-11)
    This thesis focuses on pupils’ agency and their experiences with and reflections on educational choices. The theoretical framework draws on Margaret Archer’s morphogenetic approach as it examines parts of the educational situational logics, as well as her Three-Stage Model in which structural and cultural properties shape agents’ situations. The thesis thus explores constraints and enablements pupils ...

This is the first study that aims at unifying through a common set of syntactic and semantic properties a group of constructions that were ...
  • Mellom Solferino og Berlin. Norges Røde Kors under andre verdenskrig 

    Rønnebu, Gaute Lund (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2022-03-04)
    Den totale krigens karakter satte sitt klare preg på den humanitære virksomheten i Norge mellom 1940 og 1945. Men knappe ressurser og måten utnyttelsen av dem hvilte på sivilsamfunnets frivillige krefter, åpnet for at Norges Røde Kors under den tyske invasjonen og okkupasjonen av landet, kunne operere innenfor et humanitært «rom» organisasjonen selv kunne påvirke. Norges Røde Kors måtte hele veien ...

Avhandlingens forskningsfokus vokste ut av et behov for kunnskap om hvordan teknologi faktisk organiseres i skolen, hva læreres profesjonsfaglige digitale kompetanse (PfDK) vil si i praksis, og en ambisjon om å tilføre nye teknologiforståelser på feltet. Studien som avhandlingen bygger på ...

Avhandlingen legger vekt på at Norge var del av et internasjonalt fellesskap ...

  • Who merits admittance? The fairness of skills-based migration criteria 

    Egan, Magnus Skytterholm (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-10-20)
    The last few decades have seen an increasing use of merit-based immigration systems, whereby migrants are treated differently on the basis of their skills, education, and wealth. In this thesis I argue that there are justice-based reasons to be sceptical of such policies. While I agree that there are good grounds for states to control their own borders, related to self-determination and the welfare ...

  • Teaching science with students in mind 

    Sæleset, Johannes (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-10-08)
    With this thesis, I address gaps in research about how pre-service teachers (PSTs) develop and make use of knowledge for science teaching. In the project I used a qualitative case study approach to investigate seven PSTs’ science teaching, their use of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) for pedagogical reasoning, and the sources contributing to their development of PCK. I explored how PSTs develop ...
  • Skjønn i ledelse av kommunalt barnevern. Kompleksitet, motstridende krav og paradoksale spenninger 

    Olsvik, Bodil S. (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-11-12)
    Studien undersøker skjønn i praktisk barnevernledelse, hvor de kommunale barnevernledernes opplevelser av skjønn i egen ledelse er sentralt. Ledelse i barnevernet er aktualisert ved at det i flere sammenhenger er pekt på manglende ledelse, lederkompetanse og lederskjønn. Kritikken mot manglende ledelse i barnevernet kommer også som følge av at flere norske barnevernssaker er klaget inn for den ...
  • Discovering gender and inflection. A view from Icelandic 

    Björnsdottir, Sigridur Mjoll (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-09-20)
    <p>In this dissertation, I investigate the nature of generalizations in grammatical gender and inflectional morphology from a learning perspective. Cross-linguistic differences in children’s learning trajectories have been at the forefront of research on the acquisition of grammatical gender. Transparency has been argued to be predictive of children’s behavior in gender acquisition (Slobin, 1977). ...

    <p>Background: Life-threatening events come in various forms, affecting individuals and their societies by evoking fear. Collective dangers such as terrorist attacks, war, conflict, and natural disasters may create societal chaos and suffering.
