  • "One's life is peculiary one's own when one has invented it." En lesning av kjønnstematikk i Djuna Barnes' roman Nightwood. 

    Myrland, Inger-Johanne (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2000-05)
    ”I am the most famous unknown of the century!” Slik lød selvkarakteristikken fra Djuna Barnes (1892-1982) i et brev til forfatterkollegaen Natalie Barney i 1963.<sup>1</sup> Da var Barnes 71 år og hadde forlengst avskrevet muligheten for en bred litterær anerkjennelse etter å ha forfattet Nightwood, romanen denne oppgaven har som mål å si noe om. Når vi nå skriver 2000, 37 år senere, har dette ...
  • The personal is political yet again: Bringing struggles between gender equality and gendered next of kin onto the feminist agenda 

    Lotherington, Ann Therese; Obstfelder, Aud; Ursin, Gøril (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-18)
    In spite of feminist criticism of the welfare state, Norwegian society is frequently perceived as gender-equal. As a truism of public discourse, gender equality affirms a neoliberal understanding of individuals as able to act independently and to freely choose their course in life. This article disrupts that truism with an analysis of a transitional process that occurred to a seemingly free and ...

    Bognar, Dorottya (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-31)
    The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) International Code for Ships Operating in Polar Waters (Polar Code) is a new chapter in the regulation of Arctic shipping.

    Nordahl-Hansen, Anders; Tøndevold, Magnus; Øien, Roald A; Fletcher-Watson, Sue (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-02)
    There has been a rise of character portrayals of persons with Autism or autistic traits in TV and film. In this quantitative study we analyse 26 films and TV-shows with characters with Autistic traits and how these relate to diagnostic criteria in DSM-5. Out of all 26 portrayals, 20 showed at least 10 of all 12 symptom items. Our main findings indicate that portrayals, although aligning closely to ...

    The thesis investigates if social media with focus on Facebook is used as a digital public sphere. Issues concerning privacy rights online, coercive and manipulative political advertisement are discussed in contrast to the positive aspects of social media as platform for an inclusive, pluralist and community friendly discourse. Independent data from a questionnaire on habits and views on social ...
  • The Short Story Cycle: A Marginalized Genre for Marginalized Stories. A Genre Critique of Sandra Cisneros’ Woman Hollering Creek 

    Normann, Helene Gurandsrud (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-11-20)
    The short story cycle is an overlooked genre, often dismissed by critics as a short story collection. This lack of attention paid to the interconnectedness between the short stories within a work diminishes the work as a whole by not acknowledging the value added by the relation between the short stories. In the background presented in this thesis, the classification of Sandra Cisneros’s Woman ...
  • The Great Gatsby - flappers and philosophers in the upper secondary classroom. A historical-biographical reading, watching and studying of Fitzgerald's novel 

    Tennes, Ragnhild Seel (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-11-16)
    This master's thesis tries out a historical-biographical approach to the challenge of teaching English literature in Norwegian upper secondary schools in three steps according to three curricular aims. In selecting The Great Gatsby for this purpose, I discover the opportunity to kill several birds with one stone when I enable my students to interpret and analyse the novel, compare to film versions, ...
  • The Ethics of Proximity in Literature: An Ethical Reading of Immediacy in J.M. Coetzee's Age of Iron and Foe 

    Myklatun, Anne (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-11-01)
    In this project, I present a reading of ethics and politics in John Maxwell Coetzee’s Foe (1986) and Age of Iron (1990) based on Emmanuel Levinas’ philosophy on proximity. By deploying the ethics of proximity into the ethical reading of the relationships between Mrs. Curren and Vercueil in Age of Iron and between Susan and Friday in Foe, a sense of resistance towards the political dimensions of ...

    Grødahl, Kristoffer (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-10-30)
    This thesis explores the author role as a complex construct in relation to the notion of canonicity, investigating the relationship between authors, their original works, fan authors and fan authors’ works of fan fiction. Four major works have been chosen for analysis, Arthur Conan Doyle’s A Study In Scarlet (1887), J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2007), Anthony Horowitz’ ...
  • This Word is (Not?) Very Exciting: Considering Intersectionality in Indigenous Studies 

    Olsen, Torjer Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-02)
    Gender and intersectional approaches can provide important insights and reflections for indigenous studies. Issues related to indigenous people and communities are broad and complex. Doing research within indigenous studies has to consist of more than simply discussing indigenous identity. I argue that intersectional approaches of varying kinds provide an opportunity to understand several aspects ...
  • In the wake of the wake. An investigation of the impact of the Storegga tsunami on the human settlement of inner Varangerfjord, northern Norway 

    Blankholm, Hans Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-02)
    The Storegga tsunami (8175-8120 cal. BP, Bondevik et al., 2012) has often been described as a catastrophe spelling major disaster and demographic decline for the people in the danger zone. More nuance is needed if we are to understand the effects. Most studies have had a supra-regional or regional character; less effort seems to have put into studies at the sub-regional level. The Norwegian coast, ...

    Lie, Svein Anders Noer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2018)

    This article discusses the use of evolutionary theory in the cognitive science of religion (CSR), with special attention to critical issues and new developments. In the first part of the article, I will discuss the definition of evolution and describe the Modern Synthesis (or neo-Darwinian theory). In the next part, I will consider various evolutionary perspectives in CSR, including evolutionary ...

    This thesis seeks to examine how corruption affects the vulnerability to radicalization into violent extremism by examining the process of radicalization, what makes individuals vulnerable to this process, and how these vulnerabilities are affected by corruption. The assumptions made are further examined through the case of Kosovo. Findings made in this thesis suggest that while corruption is not ...
  • Willkommenskultur in Berlin: A critical discourse analysis of national identity construction in Germany. How is the German public discourse about Willkommenskultur shaped by and a contribution to national identity construction? 

    Tobiassen, Lisa (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-11-05)
    Since the summer of 2015, the ambiguous term Willkommenskultur has been part of the increasingly polarized migration debate in Germany. This ambiguous term is used in a variety of different contexts – political, social, historical – and seems to be part of the process of national identity construction. In using Willkommenskultur several German authors contextualized the term within the historical ...
