  • Venezia-charteret. Kulturminner og bygningsbevaring 

    Helland, Ånhild Carina (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-06-03)
    Dette er en case-studie der jeg forsøker å se på hvordan bygningsbevaring fungerer i praksis, og hvordan det harmonerer med Venezia-charteret som utgangspunkt. De tre casene er valgt ut fordi de representerer ulike sider ved bevaringsarbeid, og dermed også ulike problemstillinger. Glasgow School of Art, et bygg som blir regnet som Charles Rennie Mackintosh's mesterverk, stod ferdig i 1909. I 2014 ...
  • Kjønnsperspektivet i Artemisia Gentileschis kunst. En analyse av kunstnerens kjønns betydning i fremstillingen av menn i utvalgte bibelske motiver fra den italienske barokken. 

    Grüning, Tone Maria (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-06-02)
    Denne oppgaven skal ta for seg et utvalg motiver i Artemisia Gentileschis produksjon ved å foreta en komparasjon med samtidige, mannlige kunstneres framstillinger av samme motiv, med bruk av ulike teoretikere innen kjønnsteori. Målsettingen er å prøve ut teorier om det kjønnede blikk som analytisk verktøy. De motivene som skal ligge til grunn for komparasjonen er Susanna og de eldre, Judith halshugger ...
  • Definers and Defined. A study of the portrayal of black masculinity in the characters and communities in Toni Morrison's Beloved and Paradise 

    Hansen, Marita (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-06-04)
    This thesis utilises the novels Beloved and Paradise by Toni Morrison with the purpose of examining her portrayal of black masculinity within a historical and social context, particularly in view of how and when race is complicated by gender and vice versa. It utilises a close reading of both individual characters and the communities that surround them based on Judith Butler’s theory of gender ...
  • The Development of Villains in B. Stoker’s "Dracula", A.C. Doyle’s “The Final Problem” and J. K. Rowling’s "Harry Potter" saga. 

    Kalinin, Evgeny (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-05-14)
    This Master's Thesis explores the phenomena of villains and their development in English literature in the period from 1893 to 2016, based on the examples of Dracula from B. Stoker's Dracula, Moriarty from A. C. Doyle's "The Final Problem”, and Voldemort from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The analysis investigates the development of these villains and brings up the greater questions about evil ...
  • Språk og standpunktkarakterer i nynorsk- og bokmålskommuner på Vestlandet 

    Blekesaune, Morten; Vangsnes, Øystein A (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-06-12)
    Standpunktkarakterene i nynorskkommuner på Vestlandet viser en mindre gunstig utvikling i perioden mellom 2009 og 2018 enn i bokmålskommunene i samme region. Artikkelen drøfter mulige årsaker, herunder endringer i medienes språk, der nynorsk i stor grad har blitt fortrengt av bokmål og dialekter, en utvikling som er aller tydeligst i nye digitale medier.
  • Queer Norwegian Cinema Doesn’t Exist. An explanatory critique of Norsk filmhistorie: spillefilmen 1911-2011. 

    Hansen, Jennifer Britt Lundberg (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-06-01)
    Are there any queer Norwegian films? How would one find out about it? The main objective of this thesis is to make visible how queer gender and sexuality are represented in the most prominent work in the Norwegian film history discourse. With writing history, there is a danger of social exclusion and this thesis found that the queer community has been marginalized in the film history book "Norsk ...
  • The effects of vocabulary-oriented warm-up tasks on student vocabulary acquisition and task value beliefs 

    Koppen, Olai Karl-Vegard (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-06-02)
    This thesis explores the possible interactions between vocabulary-oriented warm-up tasks and students’ vocabulary acquisition, and how these tasks can foster motivated students. A quasi-experiment was conducted in a Norwegian lower secondary school. It examined the effects of using a vocabulary-oriented, word guessing style game inspired by the board game Alias, through a receptive vocabulary test ...
  • Performativity and gender in Kiersten White´s And I Darken 

    Kristoffersen, Sara Aske (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-05-22)
    The roles of strong and independent female protagonists in Young Adult literature have been debated in the past two decades. One assumption is that female protagonists can suggest to girls that they can do whatever they aim for and develop their own voice. Kiersten White´s And I Darken (2016) demonstrates that strong and independent female protagonists are needed and the protagonist Lada Dragwyla ...
  • The Social Contract, Biopolitics and Hurricane Katrina: Two Perspectives from Sarah Broom's Memoir The Yellow House and Sheri Fink's Five Days at Memorial 

    Larsen, Richard Westereng (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-05-14)
    In 2005, Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc along the Mexican Gulf Coast, and the aftermaths have (again) revealed the racial inequality that endures in the US. The fact that the US government was unable to protect their weak and most vulnerable citizens points to a fractured social contract. Through the memoir The Yellow House by Sarah Broom, and the non-fiction text Five Days at Memorial by Sheri ...
  • Internal and External Factors in Heritage Language Acquisition: Evidence from Heritage Russian in Israel, Germany, Norway, Latvia and the UK 

    Rodina, Yulia; Kupisch, Tanja; Meir, Natalia; Mitrofanova, Natalia; Urek, Olga; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-11)
    In this paper, we consider elicited production data (real and nonce words tasks) from five different studies on the acquisition of grammatical gender in Heritage Russian, comparing children growing up in Germany, Israel, Norway, Latvia, and the United Kingdom. The children grow up in diverse heritage language backgrounds, ranging from small groups (in Norway) to large communities (in Latvia). ...
  • Bo i Nord i Tromsø, fra idé til realitet. Et eksperiment for klimavennlige boliger og sosiale boformer 

    Bjørnsen, Tone (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-06-02)
    I denne oppgaven beskrives Bo i Nord et boligområde sentralt på Tromsøya fra de første ideene, via det kommunale planarbeidet og til området stod ferdig. Boligområdet ble anlagt i 1990 og var planlagt som en boligutstilling i tilknyttet organisasjonen Winter Cities, og skulle vise eksempler på gode klimatilpassede boliger i arktiske strøk. Bo i Nord er et tettbygget småhusområde hvor boligene ligger ...
  • Las lecturas distributivas de la preposición 'a' 

    Fábregas, Antonio (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-11)
    En este trabajo exploramos dos construcciones asociadas a lecturas distributivas en las que se emplea la preposición <i>a</i>, la estructura <i>N a N</i> (<i>gota a gota, uno a uno...</i>) y la estructura <i>a D N</i> (<i>al día, a la semana, al kilómetro...</i>). Este uso distributivo de <i>a</i> es en principio inesperado, ya que, frente a la preposición <i>por</i>, no suele dar lugar por sí misma ...
  • Ein werdender Romantiker übersetzt einen Aufklärer. Henrik Steffens und Carl Ludwig Willdenow 

    Federhofer, Marie-Theres (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-04-09)
    Henrik Steffens’ erste wissenschaftliche Buchpublikation, Udkast til en Lærebog i Botaniken (1794), war die Übersetzung eines botanischen Klassikers des ausgehenden 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhunderts, Carl Ludwig Willdenows Grundriss der Kräuterkunde (1792). Der vorliegende Beitrag arbeitet anhand dieser bislang wenig beachteten Übersetzung Steffens’ Position als Naturwissenschaftler im Übergang von ...
  • Avoiding the cum hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy: Comments and questions regarding Full Transfer Potential 

    González Alonso, Jorge; Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-06-10)
    The scientific method is a process of conjecture (hypothesis generation), prediction and subsequent testing in an effort to gain greater understanding. By its very nature, then, it is a process where, much more often than not, theoretical contributions are destined to be wrong. Somewhat ironically, though, being wrong is essentially the goal. By initially assuming our theory – or the one(s) we are ...
  • ABM-utvikling og avvikling. Hva skjedde? 

    Skare, Roswitha; Vårheim, Andreas; Stokstad, Sigrid (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2020)
    ABM-utviklings kortvarige eksistens fortoner seg som en sammenhengende reorganiseringsprosess, skriver forfatterene i denne artikkelen om ABM-utviklings vekst og fall». Artikkelen er en popularisert versjon av den vitenskapelige artikkelen «ABM-utvikling og avvikling: Institusjonell konvergens og divergens i kulturpolitikken.» (Nordisk kulturpolitisk tidsskrift, 2019, 22, 02)
  • The role of orthotactics in language switching: An ERP investigation using masked language priming 

    Casaponsa, Aina; Thierry, Guillaume; Dunabeitia Landaburu, Jon Andoni (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-12-31)
    It is commonly accepted that bilinguals access lexical representations from their two languages during language comprehension, even when they operate in a single language context. Language detection mechanisms are, thus, hypothesized to operate after the stage of lexical access during visual word recognition. However, recent studies showed reduced cross-language activation when sub-lexical properties ...
  • Businessmen and Ballerinas Take Different Forms: A Strategic Resource for Acquiring Russian Vocabulary and Morphology 

    Janda, Laura Alexis (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Included in the tasks facing a language learner is the acquisition of a lexicon and a grammar. However, when the target language has inflectional morphology, these two parts of the language-learning task intersect in the paradigms of grammatical word forms because each open-class lexeme has a number of forms that allow it to express various combinations of grammatical categories. Among major world ...
  • The Slavic Field in Norway 

    Janda, Laura Alexis (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Slavic studies in Norway have been shaped by specific facts that facilitated the development of the field, described in Section 1. Section 2 approaches the current state of our field in Norway from the perspectives of language teach- ing, linguistics, literature and culture, as well as publication venues and spe- cial resources for Slavists. I conclude in Section 3 with comments on current trends ...

  • Acceptable Ungrammatical Sentences, Unacceptable Grammatical Sentences, and the Role of the Cognitive Parser 

    Leivada, Evelina; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-10)
    A search for the terms “acceptability judgment tasks” and “language” and “grammaticality judgment tasks” and “language” produces results which report findings that are based on the exact same elicitation technique. Although certain scholars have argued that acceptability and grammaticality are two separable notions that refer to different concepts, there are contexts in which the two terms are used ...
