  • Ageing in Place and Autonomy: Is the ‘Age-Friendly’ City Initiative Too Elderly-Friendly? 

    Angell, Kim (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-05)
    This chapter discusses the ‘age-friendly cities’ initiative aimed at enhancing people’s opportunity to age in place. It presents an autonomy-based defence of the idea and examines the moral claim that the elderly can make in support of their ability to age in place. The chapter emphasizes, among other considerations, that ageing in place can have cognitive benefits through the routines and habits ...
  • Hvordan skal Nord-Norge forsvares? En analyse av landmakten på NATOs nordflanke. 

    Solvang, Øystein; Wegge, Njord (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-03-22)
    There is an ongoing debate about the future of Norwegian land power and the defence of the northern parts of the country, a crucial part of NATO’s Northern Flank. The debate emerged following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2014, and the 2022 invasion changed key premises, not least by leading to Finland and Sweden applying for NATO membership. This chapter discusses key political, military ...
  • Role of bilingualism in neurodegenerative disease II. Beyond Alzheimer's. 

    Voits, Toms (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Over the past decades, bilingualism has emerged as a potential factor having a significant impact on cognition and brain structure. Such research typically examines the effects of bilingualism in healthy children and adults. Conversely, the body of literature examining bilingualism effects in ageing populations remains comparatively small. This holds especially true with regards to effects of ...
  • Defining bilingualism as a continuum: Some tools and consequences for the study of bilingual mind and brain effects 

    Rothman, Jason; Bayram, Fatih; DeLuca, Vincent; Gonzalez Alonso, Jorge; Kubota, Maki; Puig-Mayenco, Eloi (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Prior to the early 1960s, the idea that children in bilingual contexts were somehow disadvantaged for linguistic and cognitive development was popularly held. Without consideration of socio-economic inequalities across groups, often co-occurring with ethnic/racial minority status, it was argued that simultaneous language exposure resulted in confusion, delaying the process of language acquisition ...
  • Islam and Gender Violence: Exploring Spousal Abuse in Kumasi Zongo 

    Mohammed, Maruf (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2023-10-25)
    The discourse on gender-based violence has taken a central stage in global advocacy on gender equality, human rights, affirmative action, and other issues pertaining to gender discrimination. Gender-based violence (GBV), or Sexual and Gender-based violence (SGBV) is a harmful act of sexual, physical, psychological, mental, and emotional abuse that is perpetrated against a person’s will. It is usually ...
  • Child Labour, Structural Violence and Education Exploring the impacts of psychosocial techniques in child labourers 

    Vedor, Pedro Miguel Leonardo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2023-10-31)
    This thesis investigates the impact of the "Educame Primero" program on working children in post-conflict Colombia. Through a mixed-methods approach from a Peace Perspective, it explores how educational interventions with a focus on play and psychosocial support can influence children's mental health and resilience. Findings reveal that such programs significantly enhance psychological well-being ...
  • Arbeid med sennagress - samisk tradisjonell kunnskap i naturfag 

    Kvivesen, Mona; Utsi, Tove Aagnes; Isaksen, Marianne (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Samisk tradisjonell kunnskap er i dag etterspurt både i lærerutdanningen og i skolen. Denne studien belyser hvordan naturfagstudenter på en grunnskolelærerutdanning tilegnet seg kompetanser i samisk tradisjonell kunnskap, naturfag og bærekraftig utvikling ved å jobbe med sennagress. Studentenes opplevelser av dette arbeidet ble også undersøkt.
  • Bør vi snakke om porno i barneskolen? En studie om undervisning tilknyttet seksualitet og pornografi på mellomtrinnet 

    Reite, Andrea Kjekshus; Killengreen, Siw Turid; Mardal, Inger Else (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-19)
    Selv om pornografi har eksistert i årtusener har innholdet og tilgjengeligheten de siste tiårene utviklet seg i en eksplosiv fart. Barn og unge i Norge i dag har stor tilgang til digitale verktøy, og det er en økning i andelen som eksponeres for pornografisk innhold på nett. Denne studien har undersøkt hvordan denne nye hverdagen blir behandlet i barneskolen. Lærere i naturfag og samfunnsfag har ...

    Denne artikkelen er skrevet med tre hovedformål. For det første tar den for første gang i bruk den transkriberte utgaven med åpne individdata fra folketellinga 1920 i forskning. Arkivverket gjør denne kilden tilgjengelig i komplett versjon i 2023, noe som gir nye muligheter til å studere en rekke aspekter ved norsk befolknings- og sosialhistorie på tidlig 1900-tall, blant annet detaljert innsikt i ...
  • Full Transfer Potential in L3/Ln Acquisition Crosslinguistic Influence as a Property-by-Property Process 

    Westergaard, Marit Kristine Richardsen; Mitrofanova, Natalia; Rodina, Yulia; Slabakova, Roumyana (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-07-13)
    This chapter discusses L3/Ln acquisition as a step-by-step acquisition process, where crosslinguistic influence is considered to be the result of co-activation of lexical items and syntactic structures of the previously acquired languages in processing. That is, as argued by the Linguistic Proximity Model and the Scalpel Model, L3/Ln acquisition is learning by parsing/processing. The main focus of ...
  • Conflict Coverage in India and Pakistan of the Taliban Takeover in 2021 A Study of English-language Newspapers’ Reporting in Light of the Security Competition between India and Pakistan and the Enduring Rivalry at its Core 

    Witt, Nora Therese (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2023-11-01)
    After twenty years of war, in August 2021, the United States withdrew from Afghanistan, the Afghan forces surrendered, and the Taliban regained power over Afghanistan (Yousaf and Jab-arkhail 2021, 1). The resulting security risks extend beyond the borders of Afghanistan (Verma 2022, 152). Consequently, the events received extensive attention in the media outlets in the region. This research analyses ...
  • Between Self-determination and Secession: An Assessment of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Agitations for the Independence of Southeast Nigeria 

    Akeem Idowu, Saliu (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2023-10-31)
    This thesis assesses the conflict between the Nigerian state and an ethnic-based organization called the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). The Nigerian-IPOB conflict stems from the Nigerian Civil War of 1967 - 1970, which was caused by a secessionist attempt by the eastern region of Nigeria, historically referred to as The Biafra War. Amid claims of marginalization and the adoption of indigenousness ...
  • Exploring helpers' perspectives about Mental Health and Psychological Support (MHPSS) offered to refugees in Mozambique 

    Galantini de Souza, Tila (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2023-10-31)
    Civil wars have the potential to produced devastating impacts, including increasing the number of people seeking asylum abroad. Forcibly displaced people usually carry vulnerabilities and are at greater risk of developing common and severe mental health disorders, due to stress and traumatic situations experienced prior to their flight or even after arriving at the host country, all of that combined ...
  • Nourishing Culture and Community: Exploring Food Sovereignty in Qualicum First Nations on Vancouver Island 

    Blackwell, Lydia (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2023-11-02)
    Although increasing urbanization has benefitted the west through economic growth, improved service provision, technological advancements, and increased access to education, it has had negative consequences for many other aspects of western society, including air and water quality, health, and food sovereignty. Food sovereignty is defined as the right of people to have culturally appropriate and ...
  • The legitimacy of local government in the Australian federation 

    Brenton, Scott; Stein, Jonas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-16)
    Australian local government does not enjoy the status of its counterparts in comparable democracies and has long sought acknowledgment in the federal constitution. As these campaigns have consistently failed, this study considers how, and in which forms, local government obtains its own political legitimacy within a governance system centered on the citizen–state relationship, in addition to evaluating ...
  • Nasjonal lederutdanning for styrere i barnehagen – en arena for kvalifisering, sosialisering og subjektivering 

    Madsen, Siri Sollied; Kleiven, Hanne Merete Hestvik; Mørreaunet, Sissel; Antonsen, Yngve; Steinsvik, Betty (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-14)
    I studien undersøker vi hvordan grensekryssingen mellom arbeidet og styrerutdanningen bidrar til kvalifisering, sosialisering og subjektivering i rollen som leder i barnehager. Det teoretiske rammeverket er Biestas (2014) forståelse av kvalifisering, sosialisering og subjektivering som utdanningers tre funksjonsområder. Studien bygger på kvalitative data og presenterer analyse av eksamensoppgaver ...
  • LOS CONDES DE CARRIÓN. Comedia burlesca anónima 

    Cabanillas Cardenas, Carlos Fernando (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2020)
  • Forbitrelsens kunst : analyse og resepsjonsanalyse av to tekster av Amalie Skram og Torborg Nedreaas 

    Ramberg, Ingri Løkholm (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Amalie Skram dør i 1905, og Torborg Nedreaas blir født i 1906, som for å ta over en stafettpinne. Vi vet at Skram var en avgjørende leseropplevelse for den unge Nedreaas (Eriksen 1979; Grøgaard 1976). Hun oppga å måtte ta lange pauser fra å lese Skram fordi tekstene gikk sånn inn på henne – men at hun til gjengjeld var «ny hver gang» (Nedreaas 1973). Det er en gjenganger i forskningslitteraturen at ...
  • ”Jag tänkte att min blick skulle kunna hålla dem kvar i ljuset”. Sara Stridsbergs Beckomberga (2014) som pårørenderoman 

    Ramberg, Ingri Løkholm (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-04-21)
    Artikkelen er en analyse av Sara Stridsbergs Beckomberga. Ode till min familj fra 2014. Analysen tar sats fra dedikasjonen som står trykket sist i boken, som dedikerer romanen til alle som var innom parken på mentalsykehuset Beckomberga i årene 1932 til 1995. Med utgangspunkt i dedikasjonen leser jeg romanen som en pårørendefortelling, og diskuterer hvordan romanen utforsker pårørenderollen gjennom ...
  • Words as archaeological objects: A study of marine lifeways, seascapes, and coastal environmental knowledge in the Yagan‑English dictionary 

    Eidshaug, Jo Sindre Pålssønn; Bjerck, Hein Bjartmann; Lohndal, Terje; Risbøl, Ole (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-21)
    Reverend Thomas Bridges’ Yagan-English dictionary (1879) has hitherto been little explored outside of linguistics but is highly valuable as a complementary source to archaeological, ethnohistorical, and ethnographic records in Tierra del Fuego (Argentina and Chile). The dictionary contains 22,800 entries and yields rich information concerning the marine lifeways of the Yagan and their and ...
