    Comparison of China-US Engineering Ethics Educations in Sino-Western Philosophies of Technology2015In: Science and Engineering Ethics, ISSN 1353-3452, E-ISSN 1471-5546, Vol. 22, no 6, p. 1609-1635Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ethics education has become essential in modern engineering. Ethics education in engineering has been increasingly implemented worldwide. It can improve ethical behaviors in technology and engineering design under the guidance of the philosophy of technology. Hence, this study aims to compare China-US engineering ethics education in Sino-Western philosophies of technology by using literature studies, online surveys, observational researches, textual analyses, and comparative methods. In my original theoretical framework and model of input and output for education, six primary variables emerge in the pedagogy: disciplinary statuses, educational goals, instructional contents, didactic models, teaching methods, and edificatory effects. I focus on the similarities and differences of engineering ethics educations between China and the US in Chinese and Western philosophies of technology. In the field of engineering, the US tends toward applied ethics training, whereas China inclines toward practical moral education. The US is the leader, particularly in the amount of money invested and engineering results. China has quickened its pace, focusing specifically on engineering labor input and output. Engineering ethics is a multiplayer game effected at various levels among (a) lower level technicians and engineers, engineering associations, and stockholders; (b) middle ranking engineering ethics education, the ministry of education, the academy of engineering, and the philosophy of technology; and (c) top national and international technological policies. I propose that professional engineering ethics education can play many important roles in reforming engineering social responsibility by international cooperation in societies that are becoming increasingly reliant on engineered devices and systems. Significantly, my proposals contribute to improving engineering ethics education and better-solving engineering ethics issues, thereby maximizing engineering sustainability.

    A Modern Trial: A Study of the Use of Video-Recorded Testimonies in the Swedish Court of Appeal2013In: Studies in Law, Politics, and Society, ISSN 1059-4337, Vol. 61, p. 81-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The essay studies the introduction and use of audio-visual media in contemporary Swedish courtroom praxis and how this affects social interaction and the constitution of judicial space. The background to the study is the increasing use of video technology in law courts during the last decennium, and in particular the reformed trial code regulating court proceedings introduced in Sweden in 2008. The reform is called A Modern Trial (En modernare raättegång, Proposition 2004/05:131). An important innovation is that testimonies in lower level court proceedings now are video recorded and, in case of an appeal trial, then are screened in the appellate court. The study of social interaction and the constitution of judicial space in the essay is based in part on an ethnographic study of the Stockholm appellate court(Svea hovraätt) conducted in the fall 2010; in part on a study of the preparatory works to the legal reform; and in part on research on how media technology affects social interaction and the constitution of space and place.

    All Aboard the Louis Vuitton Train!2016In: Pólemos, ISSN 2036-4601, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 179-195Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses fashion advertising as a means to access and understand contemporary social imaginary significations of the body politic, focusing on an advertising for Louis Vuitton. The article suggest that one can read advertising as a form of continuous, running commentary that society makes of itself, and through which one can unearth the social imaginary. The article finds a plethora of meanings in the selected advertising for Louis Vuitton, but the central finding is that the fashion advertising represents community as an absence of community; in other words as a deficit that the brand somehow is able to rectify.

    Spacing Law and Politics: The Constitution and Representation of the Juridical2016 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Examining the inherent spatiality of law, both theoretically and as social practice, this book presents a genealogical account of the emergence and the development of the juridical. In an analysis that stretches from ancient Greece, through late antiquity and early modern and modern Europe, and on to the contemporary courtroom, it considers legal and philosophical texts, artistic and literary works, as well as judicial practices, in order to elicit and document a series of critical moments in the history of juridical space. Offering a more nuanced understanding of law than that found in traditional philosophical, political or social accounts of legal history, Dahlberg forges a critical account of the intimate relations between law and politics that shows how juridical space is determined and conditioned in ways that are integral to the very functioning – and malfunctioning – of law.

    Content strategies of the future: Between games and Stories - Crossroads for the video game industry2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The video game industry is the combination of two worlds: technology (IT) and show-biz/media/cultural industries. This paper explores this tension by exposing the shortcomings of the culture economics perspective and its lack of understanding for the unique characteristics of the video game medium, thus subsequently proposing a deeper analysis of the medium by turning to literary theoretical perspectives on games, such as ludology and narratology. Due the lack of technological dimensions in its theoretical framework, narratology is deemed less fruitful as an analytical tool and ludology is preferred. Ludology, with Espen Aarseth's cybertext theory elucidates aspects of "interactivity ", author-medium-reader power relations and the mechanical organization of textual machines, which provides perspectives on practice in the video game industry.

    Among pasta-loving mafiosos, drug-selling Columbians and noodle-eating triads: Race, humour and interactive ethics in Grand Theft Auto III2005In: Proceedings of DiGRA 2005 Conference: Changing Views - Worlds in Play, 2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the intersection of race, humour and interactivity in Grand Theft Auto 3. We argue that video games not only diffuse cultural and symbolic meanings, but also provide new loci for reflection and critique of issues of inter alia race. Two different analytical perspectives are juxtaposed when studying racial issues of GTA3. The first perspective is Critical Race Theory (CRT). The second perspective derives from the phthonic and incongruity theory of humour (Morreall 1986). We will argue that the CRT perspective is consistent with the phthonic theory of humour, while the incongruity theory goes beyond CRT presenting a novel way of interpreting games. This theoretical framework is applied when analysing the controversial game GTA3. By presenting stereotypical images of race in GTA3 as humorous, the player is provided with cues for reflecting and evaluating his/her own perspectives on issues of race.

    Ethnic Conflict and the Right to Return of Limbo Disaporas: Multifaceted Reflections on the Case of BiH2004In: Migration and Ethnic Studies (Migracijske i Etnicke Teme), ISSN 1133-2546, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 29-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the phenomenon of refugees and resettled persons in the process of forcedmigrations in the aftermath of man-made disasters. Although some of the ideas presented here couldhave wider application, the focus is on post-conflict zones within the former Yugoslavia, namely BiH.The paper uses the questions of ethnicity and nationalism within resettlement, dislocation and immigrationas a backdrop, into which the issue of globalization is also briefly reflected. The intention hereis not to cover a wide range of pressing topics, but simply to relate a number of issues arising in contemporarylarge-scale forced migrations to a resurgence of cultural specificity and ethnicized nationalismas counterpoints to globalization. The paper introduces the concept of “limbo diasporas” in the caseof Bosnian refugees in Sweden through reflection and linkage with the aforementioned concepts. Thepaper ends with some recommendations and open questions on social rehabilitation and ethnic healingas well as some general conclusions.

    Conservation under Occupation in the Historic City of Nablus2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on Foucault’s conceptualisation of power - as a set of actions performed upon other actions andreactions - this article aims to understand the mechanisms behind cultural conservation where nexus ofconflictual powers is particular densified as an effect of both an occupation force and the internationalcommunity intervention. Thereby, it examines the way discourses of cultural meanings are formed,transformed and correlated influenced by the multiple powers involved in the politics of cultural conservation.The link between discourse and power is illustrated through a particular enactment of a concrete research inwhich the Historic Centre of Nablus in Palestine is identified as a case. Conflict of power relations and interestsis a universal question however it becomes a unique phenomenon when happening in an occupied society. Thisarticle argues that occupation force, local resistance and international community interventions have exposedthe cultural resources of the Palestinian Historic centres to ‘concentrated’ processes of both ‘destruction’ and‘conservation’. Understanding the current mechanisms behind cultural conservation may therefore explorepossible ways for locally-sensitive cultural conservation.

    CULTURE AND PLANNING FOR CHANGE AND CONTINUITY: 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This  paper  aims  to  examine  the  value  of  cultural  considerations  in  urban  planning  and  to contribute to the current discussion on Botswana’s planning system. ‘Integrated Conservation’ and  ‘Cultural Planning’,  as  two dominant  international  streams  on  culture  and planning,  are compared with  the  local context of Botswana  to  identify possibilities and  challenges  for  the planning review. The Town and Country Planning Act, in addition to two case study areas, is presented  to  highlight  the Botswanan  context. The  results  reveal  a distinct  need  for  a  shift from  ‘planning  for  culture’  to  ‘cultural  institutionalisation’,  where  the  traditional  division between  ‘bottom-up’ and  ‘top-down’ urban development  tendencies  is  challenged  to allow a wider scale of actors and interests to interact deliberately rather than engage.

    Review of the Botswana Town and Country Planning Act from a Cultural Point of View 2007Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to contribute into the discussion on the current review of the spatial planning and relevant legislation. The focus has been on the Town and Country Planning (TCP) Act. Before conducting the review of the Act the field research started by carrying out analyses of the local values and process of urban planning. Therefore Shoshong village have been analysed to develop some understandings of Tswana culture. This was followed by analyses of Sowa town which was planned and designed based on Tswana culture. With the empirical findings in mind, the TCP Act and other spatial and relevant legislation have been analysed, showing how the planning system lack attention to the local values and have consequently contributed in the loss of Botswana’s cultural identity. The results were discussed at the National Museum where representatives of a number of government, civic, and voluntary institutions were invited.

    Executive search as ethnosociality: A cross-cultural comparison2016In: International Journal of Cross Cultural Management, ISSN 1470-5958, E-ISSN 1741-2838, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 153-169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we explore how executive search consultants in Austria, Finland and Sweden address ethnicity. Our findings suggest that while consultants working in these different sociocultural settings may attribute different meanings to ethnicity, they share a tendency to evade questions of ethnicity with regard to the search process. We specify three discursive practices that serve to eliminate questions of ethnicity from executive search: constructing whiteness as self-evident, constructing varieties of whiteness (articulating deficiency and lack for those not belonging to Us), and distancing responsibility for the current situation to clients and society. In view of these findings, we argue that executive search can be understood as an arena for ethnosociality that stops cultural diversity at the door of management suites and serves to undermine efforts to promote cross-cultural understanding in organizations. Our study indicates that sustaining whiteness as a privileged ethnicity takes multiple forms. While executive search consultants play an important role in these processes, it is suggested that they inherit a more fundamental problem in society and they have few opportunities to change the ethnic status quo at the top.

    Resilienz bedeutet Flexibilität, Widerstandsfähigkeit und Anpassungsvermögen. In der Debatte um globale Klima- und Umweltveränderungen erlaubt es das Konzept der Resilienz, soziale, technische und ökologische Katastrophen nicht als vermeidbare gesellschaftliche Probleme aufzufassen, sondern als Chancen, als Generatoren des sozial-ökologischen Wandels umzudeuten.

    Video-mediated Participation in Virtual Museum Tours for Older Adults2016In: Proceedings of the10th International COnference on Design and Emotion: Celebration & Contemplation / [ed] Desmet, P.M.A., Fokkinga S.F., Ludden, G.D.S., Cila, N., & Van Zuthem, H., The Design & Emotion Society, , 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces a virtual tour, Visit the Louvre, designed specifically to engage older adults in an immersive visit through part of the Louvre by a distant real-life guide. An initial diary study and a creative workshop were conducted to understand the needs and values of older adults and how to support participation to virtual museum visits with a video-based communication system. Preliminary results show that ‘virtual visitors’ experienced high levels of social and spatial presence; immersion and engagement were quite high independent of the level of interactivity of the guide, or the presence of others.

    A hundred introductions to semiotics, for a million students: Survey of semiotics textbooks and primers in the world2015In: Sign Systems Studies, ISSN 1406-4243, Vol. 43, no 2-3, p. 281-346Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to estimate the current situation of teaching materials available in the field of semiotics, we are providing a comparative overview and a worldwide bibliography of introductions and textbooks on general semiotics published within last 50 years, i.e. since the beginning of institutionalization of semiotics. In this category, we have found over 130 original books in 22 languages. Together with the translations of more than 20 of these titles, our bibliography includes publications in 32 languages. Comparing the authors, their theoretical backgrounds and the general frames of the discipline of semiotics in diff erent decades since the 1960s makes it possible to describe a number of predominant tendencies. In the extensive bibliography thus compiled we also include separate lists for existing lexicons and readers of semiotics as additional material not covered in the main discussion. Th e publication frequency of new titles is growing, with a certain depression having occurred in the 1980s. A leading role of French, Russian and Italian works is demonstrated.

    Greening the History: Discourses of Nation, Ecology and Environmental Protection in contemporary Japan2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nation-building brings along the definition of new national landscapes, drawing of new lines of division, new peripheries and centres. Legal frameworks of ownership, use and protection among others inscribe these cultural concepts on real landscapes. The present paper follows the development of the Japanese rural rice cultivation landscapes from a landscape of production that has to support the nation’s colonial endeavour before the WWII, through the peripheral backyards of the modernizing industrial Japan after the WWII, to the embodiment of the ancient Japanese wisdom and harmony with nature from the late 20th century onwards. Inscribing new national landscapes on the state territories bundled together infrastructure development, nature protection and the promotion of tourism. From the second half of the 20th century, but especially from 1990s onwards, the reasoning of the values of national landscapes has become increasingly dominated by ecological discourse that – being by nature a systemic metalanguage ­– naturalizes the national value in scientific terms. In the context of raising nationalism and under the protective framework of ecology, the satoyama ecosystems that unite two basic national landscape ideals, the forests and rice paddies, become a symbol of sustainable resource use and superior moral character of the nation, manifested in the ancient wisdom of the traditional agricultural practice.  Strong ideological stands have their inevitable consequences for the real life landscape management, and not only within Japan: afforestation and constantly growing forest reserve (and consequent large-scale timber import for sustaining traditional building techniques), expanding areas of protection for satoyama landscapes that are hardly sustainable in today’s rural settings, resuscitation of several lost landscape features and whitewashing Japan’s history of industrial disasters by claiming a special harmonious relationship with nature, unseen in the Western civilization.

    On Dogs, Aurora and Ships: Bipolar Imagination in Japan2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Japan is a relative newcomer in the Arctic politics as it has no territorial claims in the Arctic, nor an early history of Arctic expeditions. Instead, modernizing Japan focused its attention to Antarctica from as early as 1910. Today, Japan is showing increasing interest in Arctic politics and management, insisting that important decisions should not be taken only by the Arctic States and the Arctic Ocean coastal States. The Japanese government view is that the Arctic “should be recognized as a part of the common heritage of mankind. The international community should protect this area and use it for peaceful purposes”. Japan explains its polar interests by being a maritime country and although the country’s main activities in the polar regions pertain to scientific research, many consider Japan’s real motivation to be in the potential Northern shipping routes. Accordingly, the Arctic figures in the government documents as empty fields of water, ice and hidden treasures, subjected to international scientific research and management – quite like the Antarctic. Indigenous people are almost invisible. I will present an ongoing research project into the commonalities in the Japanese imagination of the two poles. Through the analyses of museum exhibits and other cultural phenomena, I will discuss a variety of images where the perception of the two poles gets blurred, notably the Japanese obsession with Aurora borealis, snow fields, but also the moving bodies of icebreakers, whales – and dogs. A telling example is the story of 15 Japanese Karafuto breed dogs whose tragic fate after the first Japanese Antarctic overwinter camp has become the dominant cultural narrative of polar research. The block-buster movie of the expedition, “Tales of Antarctica”, is largely shot in the Canadian Arctic and it can be argued that the origin of the dogs in the former Northern territories of Japan (Sakhalin) helps to project Japan as a place with deep cultural ties to Arctic

    Universal heritage value, community identities and world heritage: Forms, functions, processes and context at a changing Mt FujiManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract. Numerous international documents underline the high identity value of cultural heritage for local communities and its potential for sustainable development. Simultaneously, the inclusion in UNESCO’s World Heritage List depends on the outstanding universal value that presumes a global community and prioritizes global heritage value before the local ones. This setup holds potential tension.

    This paper discusses how to define heritage communities and access their heritage identities, differentiating between landscape forms, functions, processes and context. The case study of Mt Fuji World Heritage is used to illustrate the model. While global and national communities emphasize the form of the heritage and policies target the preservation of the present visual shape, the local and religious communities identify with the functions and practices embodied by the sites. Not all communities identify with the proposed interpretative context for Mt Fuji heritage value. Additional tension arises from the Eurocentric mind-set behind world heritage expertise.

    Staging a milieu: Surfaces and event zones2013In: Foucault, Biopolitics, and Governmentality / [ed] Sven-Olov Wallenstein and Jakob Nilsson, Huddinge: Södertörns högskola , 2013, p. 123-131Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Public space is diminishing in many urban areas, and it has been claimed, for instance by Koolhaas, that this represents a major transformation of the contemporary city. At the same time new forms of public space are constructed both inside and outside institutions, by private companies and corporations. “The public”, it can be argued, becomes a technique to stage a “milieu” in Foucault’s sense of the concept, where space is the medium for events. Programs and activities, earlier hidden in the “apparatus of society,” are opened up for the public, and through transparent surfaces or event zones the individual gets caught in unexpected, but still already staged, situations. In this chapter this phenomena is discussed in relation to some contemporary examples, like the factory and the prison, but also in relation to media institutions.

    Sweden: The life and death and life of great neighbourhood centres2006In: Built Environment, ISSN 0263-7960, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 32-52Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish planning after World War II had many similarities with The Netherlands. In the 1950s planning in general resulted in human scale neighbourhoods and centres. They were planned with the intention of creating pleasant environments that would foster democracy and culture. But during the ten years around 1970, these ideas faded, and the prime objective was to produce one million dwellings in ever larger neighbourhood units, as the retail lobbyists required larger and larger catchment areas.Today, the neighbourhood centres face problems of survival. Many small centres have ceased to be centres for the neighbourhood as the former grocery stores have been replaced by pet shops, dry cleaners etc, with a regional scope. Some large centres, like Vllingby in Stockholm, are subject to massive investment, to enable them to compete on a regional scale; a few, like Rinkeby also in Stockholm, are trying to adjust to the local population needs, in this case with a large proportion of non-native Swedes.

    The Infrastructure for Cultural Adoption: An Investigation in the Field of Mergers and Acquisitions2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis investigates how an infrastructure for cultural adoption in a merger and acquisition integration could be designed. This research is valuable since prior research indicate that culture plays an important role in the success of integrating an acquired firm into the acquirer’s organization. However, there has been no research conducted in the field of how the culture should be regarded for. Our research took place at the Stockholm office of Logica, an Information Technology (IT) consultancy company which was acquired by CGI in August 2012. We have by the means of interviews and observations through our study at the case company derived numerous factors which all have a positive impact on the cultural adoption. These factors have then been categorized into three major themes; Experience, Planning, and Communication. These themes, and thus also factors, are not entirely independent but rather impose effects on each other, most notably in the case of experience. However, it is still our suggestion that the infrastructure for cultural adoption in a merger and acquisition (M&A) integration should address these three topics. Furthermore, it is in our beliefs that if these areas are addressed, the frequently recurring problem of unsuccessful M&As due to the neglecting of culture can be managed. And hopefully, by applying an infrastructural approach, it will aid the cultural adoption and moreover increase the probability of a successful M&A integration.

    A reluctant Arctic citizen?: On Sweden's role in Arctic science and geopolitics in the 20th century and heroptions for the 21st2012Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden had a very active role in the early scientific exploration of the European Arctic up until WorldWar I and remained an active industrial stakeholder in Spitsbergen until around 1930. From then on Sweden went into a long period of comparatively low activity in the Arctic, but with interesting exceptions. When official Swedish interest was renewed in the 1980s science was foregrounded and other policy areas kept on a low profile. Today Sweden holds the chairmanship of the Arctic Council and presented in May 2011 for the first time an official Arctic policy. How should we interpret Sweden's Arctic politics? Is the low profile likely to change, and if so -- what policy options are open?
