  • Justice for the LGBTQ+ community through Celebrating Pride. An examination of justice for sexual minorities in the light of recognition and redisribution, as presented by Axel Honneth and Nancy Fraser. 

    Kjærnes, Cornelia (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-11-18)
    The LGBTQ+ community has over the past fifty years gone from being a severely oppressed group of people, where most people lived closeted lives, to become a well known minority group that many people associate with celebration, bravery and pride. This is not to say that the circumstances have completely changed for the LGBTQ+ community. They are still subjected to a high level of threat when it comes ...
  • Being a participant matters: Event related potentials show that markedness modulates person agreement in Spanish 

    Alemán Bañón, Jose; Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-24)
    The present study uses event-related potentials to examine subject–verb person agreement in Spanish, with a focus on how markedness with respect to the speech participant status of the subject modulates processing. Morphological theory proposes a markedness distinction between first and second person, on the one hand, and third person on the other. The claim is that both the first and second persons ...
  • Entrapment: From the objection from temptation to the objection from moral alliance 

    Hill, Daniel; McLeod, Stephen; Tanyi, Attila (Preprint; Manuskript, 2020-02-25)
    Entrapment involves two parties: the agent, who entraps, and the target, who is entrapped. When entrapment occurs, the agent procures the target’s act by recommending, requesting or enjoining its performance. When an agent intentionally tempts a target, the agent presents the target with the opportunity to perform an act, with the intention that the target will experience an urge to perform ...
  • On the Road to Meaning 

    Tanyi, Attila (Preprint; Manuskript, 2020-02-25)
    The paper offers a philosophically infused analysis of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. The main idea is that McCarthy’s novel is primarily a statement on the meaning of life. Once this idea is argued for and endorsed, by using a parallel between The Road and a 19th century Hungarian dramatic poem, The Tragedy of Man, the paper goes on to argue that the most plausible – although admittedly not the only ...
  • What are basic liberties? An Essay in Analytical Specification 

    McLeod, Stephen; Tanyi, Attila (Preprint; Manuskript, 2020-02-25)
    Our initial aim is to characterize, in a manner more precise than before, what Rawls calls the “analytical” method of arrival at a list of basic liberties. As we understand it, this method employs one or more general conditions that, under any just social order whatever, putative entitlements must meet in order for them to be among the basic liberties encompassed, within some just social ...
  • Consequentialist Demands, Intuitions and Experimental Methodology 

    Tanyi, Attila; Sweetman, Joe (Preprint; Manuskript, 2020-02-25)
    Can morality be so demanding that we have reason not to follow its dictates? According to many, it can, if that morality is a consequentialist one. We take the plausibility and coherence of this objection – the Demandingness Objection – as a given and are also not concerned with finding the best response to the Objection. Instead, our main aim is to explicate the intuitive background of the Objection ...
  • Consequentialism and Its Demands: The Role of Institutions 

    Miklos, Andras; Tanyi, Attila (Preprint; Manuskript, 2020-02-25)
    It isn’t saying much to claim that morality is demanding; the question, rather, is: can morality be so demanding that we have reason not to follow its dictates? According to many, it can, if that morality is a consequentialist one. This paper takes the plausibility and coherence of this objection – the Demandingness Objection – as a given. Our question, therefore, is how to respond to the Objection. ...
  • What is the incoherence objection to legal entrapment 

    Hill, Daniel; McLeod, Stephen; Tanyi, Attila (Preprint; Manuskript, 2020-02-25)
    Some legal theorists say that legal entrapment to commit a crime is incoherent. So far, there is no satisfactorily precise statement of this objection in the literature: it is obscure even as to the type of incoherence that is purportedly involved. (Perhaps consequently, substantial assessment of the objection is also absent.) We aim to provide a new statement of the objection that is more ...
  • Bioenergy potential of russia: Method of evaluating costs 

    An, Jaehyung; Mikhaylov, Alexey; Lopatin, Evgeny; Moiseev, Nikita; Richter, Ulf H.; Varyash, Igor; Dooyum, Uyeh Daniel; Oganov, Artem; Bertelsen, Rasmus Gjedssø (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Paper proposes the method of evaluating costs for bioenergy supply in Russia based on energy analysis. The main deterrent factor is not as much limited resources as the marginal cost of production biofuels and the possibility of using cost-effective ways reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including capturing and carbon storage, alternative forms of renewable energy and energy efficiency and energy ...
  • Hit by a Stroke: An Autoethnographic Analysis of Intergenerational Care Across Geographical Distances 

    Aure, Marit (Chapter; Bokkapittel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2019-08-27)
    Increased geographical mobility, improved medical treatment, and prolonged life expectancy have changed the way of life for older persons and their next of kin. This chapter discusses intergenerational care, mainly from the next of kin’s point of view, when an older family member and the next of kin live far from each other. The study is based on my—the author’s—autoethnographic account of the ...

  • Эрик Краг: студенческие годы в советской России 

    Lønngren, Tamara (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-18)
    Erik Krag was the first Norwegian professor of Slavic literatures. The artic­­le <i>Erik Krag: his student years in Soviet Russia</i> presents earlier un­known and un­pub­lished facts about his stays, including the chronological frames, in Moscow and Leningrad as a young student. These facts are evident from archive material, deposited in Oslo, Moscow and St Peters­burg. The article also demonstrates ...
  • Periphrases in Spanish: properties, diagnostics and research questions 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-24)
    This article provides an overview of the main facts and analytical problems that relate to verbal periphrases. The article is structured as follows. In §1 I provide an overview of the main criteria for being a periphrasis, and the constructions that it should be differentiated from. §2 is devoted to the nature of the auxiliary verb, and its limits with other types of verbs. In §3 I talk about the ...
  • Mass Protests from a Spatial Perspective: Discontent and Urban Public Space in Kyiv, Minsk, and Moscow 

    Hansen, Arve (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-03-17)
    Mass protests have been an important part of the political environment in Eastern Europe for more than a century. Since the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917, people have turned to urban spaces to make their opinions heard and to demand change, with varying degrees of success. This was most notably the case during the 1960s; and from the beginning of the end of the Soviet Union in the late 1980s, ...
  • The Heritage of War and the Discourse of Sustainability 

    Figenschau, Ingar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-18)
    Since the concept of sustainability (or sustainable development) became famous through its adoption in the UN’s report, ‘Our Common Future’ in 1987, it has travelled widely to become a global and omnipresent key concept also in the field of heritage. The inclusion into this field was facilitated by the understanding of heritage as resource, which has become the norm within cultural heritage management ...
  • Innovasjonsreisen. En kvalitativ studie av oversettelsesprosessen for innovasjonssystemet "DNB Way of Innovation". 

    Vågå Mortensen, Sofie Karoline (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-11-29)
    Temaet for denne masteroppgaven er oversettelse av ideer. I denne oppgaven betraktes innovasjonssystemet DNB Way of Innovation som «ideer på reise», der oppgaven studerer innovasjonssystemets «reise» i banken. Oppgavens problemstilling lyder: Hvordan ble innovasjonssystemet «DNB Way of Innovation» oversatt og gitt sitt innhold? Med bakgrunn i problemstillingen ble det utviklet to forskningsspørsmål. ...
  • En reise i kontekstualisering av organisering av ungdomsoppfølging, og oppfølging av unge i NAV. Fra forskningsbasert informasjon til praksis i NAV 

    Ollestad, Renate (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-11-27)
    Igjennom denne oppgaven har jeg sett om ideen om organisering av ungdomsteam, og oppfølging av ungdom har blitt kontekstualisert i NAV. Jeg har valgt å bruke Røviks (2016) teori om kontekstualisering for å følge oversettingsprosessen gjennom flere organisatoriske nivå: Fra de sentrale politiske føringene videre til de skriftlige kildene internt, til de lokale NAV-kontorene. Jeg har målt kontekstualiseringen ...
  • Balansert målstyring som et styringsverktøy i Harstad kommune 

    Mortensen, Anna Sharova (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-11-27)
    Det er stadig en debatt, både innenfor privat og offentlig sektor, hvordan en skal styre organisasjonen. Siden 1980-tallet har debatten om den økte vektleggingen av prestasjonsmåling, både finansielt og ikke-finansielt, i offentlig sektor (jf. New Public Management) gjort seg gjeldende i Norge. Det har skjedd store omveltninger og omstruktureringer i offentlig sektor i senere tid. Endringene ...
  • Fortellinger om digital ledelse 

    Ingebrigtsen, Silje; Esjeholm, Linn-Hege (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-11-27)
    Tema for denne masteroppgaven er ledelse i lys av digital transformasjon. Vi har studert hva sentrale aktører i norsk næringsliv mener er viktig for å lykkes med ledelse av digital transformasjon ved å kartlegge deres forestillinger og perspektiver på ledelse. Videre har vi sett på hvorvidt disse perspektivene samsvarer med teoretiske bidrag om ledelse, digitalisering og digital transformasjon. I ...
  • Best før, eller like god etter? Antagelser og holdninger knyttet til eldre arbeidstakere – en litteraturstudie med kvalitativt innslag 

    Forsberg, Nelli (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-11-27)
    Denne oppgaven omhandler holdninger og antagelser som eksisterer om eldre arbeidstakere. De som omtales som eldre defineres i litteraturen som personer fra 55 år og oppover, denne definisjonen er angitt på bakgrunn av forskningsartikler, samt studier og undersøkelser som har blitt foretatt på området om når arbeidsgivere betrakter arbeidstakere som «eldre». Oppgavens problemstilling er delt inn i ...
