Abstract

The 14 articles presented in this publication represent some of the latest and most relevant research on rural settlement and farming from the Late Neolithic through the Early Medieval Period in Norway. It deals with the impact of climate change, plague and the AD 536–7 volcanic event and some of the earliest farms north of the Arctic Circle. It provides new perspectives and archaeological evidence for the Viking age farm of Norway, differences in regional settlement structures of agrarian societies, the relation between houses and graves in the Iron Age, and varying food practices as indicators of societal change. The publication is part of the Joint Research Program (Forskning i fellesskap) conducted by the University Museums of Norway and co-funded by The Research Council of Norway.

Abstract

Research following the terrorist attacks July 22nd 2011 has been especially challenging, due to the extreme nature of the events and the trauma for those involved; both directly as victims and indirectly as family, relatives and friends. In this anthology, challenging questions and experiences related to studies conducted in the years since 2011 are presented and discussed. The aim of this publication is to draw attention to important questions related to research ethics, and to highlight principles for respect, justice and positive consequences. The book shows the relevance of conducting research in order to manage the consequences and understand underlying explanations for such extreme events, but also reveal that both study participation and exposure for research findings may be a burden for those involved. Among the questions discussed are the following: How can we assure that each individual is treated with necessary respect both before, during and after study participation How can we assure an informed signed consent from the participants, given the situation they are facing In which way is research important, and what level of risk is acceptable? In addition, challenges related to sharing of sensitive research data and publication of results are also discussed.Even though the questions raised in this anthology stem from the extreme events of July 22nd, they are considered relevant in general for research in involving human subjects. The anthology is edited by Vidar Enebakk, Helene Ingierd og Nils Olav Refsdal; with contributions from Grete Dyb, Kari Dyregrov, Ragnar Eikeland, Tor Einar Fagerland, Kristin Alve Glad, Lars Gule, Gertrud Sofie Hafstad, Annika Melinder and Anne Marita Milde.

Boundary Struggles: Contestations of Free Speech in the Norwegian Publis Sphere

Abstract

Freedom of speech is a fundamental human right and a core value in liberal democracies. It is also, however, one of our time’s most contested issues, constantly claimed to be either too wide-ranging, at the peril of vulnerable minority groups, or too limited, restricting dissent and democratic deliberation. Employing a sociological lens on the dynamics of the public sphere, this book investigates how the boundaries of free speech are contested and negotiated through social processes which silence certain groups and opinions while amplifying others. The book focuses on key topics in current free speech debates – immigration, religion and culture. Drawing on population-representative survey data, media analysis and in-depth interviews, the authors paint a broad picture of how boundaries of free speech are defined and maintained, experienced and challenged, in the rapidly changing Norwegian public sphere. The analyses in this book build on four years of work on a large-scale project called The Status of Freedom of Speech in Norway, funded and initiated by the Fritt Ord foundation. The book presents the key findings of the second round of this project.

Abstract

The stereotypical image of quiet, dusty rooms with hushing librarians does not ring true for contemporary research libraries. On the contrary, libraries are often at the forefront of technological development. As they open up to new activities and take on new responsibilities, patrons use libraries in new ways. Increased openness is a common denominator of these transitions. At the same time, there is an ambiguity attached to the celebration of “openness” as an indisputable good, an ambiguity resonating throughout this book. The nine chapters explore the changes that are taking place from different disciplinary and methodological perspectives. In the course of the book, we learn about dilemmas created by the digitalisation of journals and books, the legitimation work of the National Library of Norway, the problematic position of “minority sources” in national collections, writing centres in research libraries, interdisciplinarity that librarians employ in their teaching, the university library as physical place, the role of the library’s atmosphere in attuning students to self-discipline, and about the library as an arena for comfort and support. The Open Library will be valuable for anyone interested in the many changes that are taking place in research libraries, and how these processes affect and are affected by the broader transitions in the higher-education sector, and in cultural and knowledge policies.

Abstract

This book draws attention to a part of Erik Werenskiold's (1855-1938) art production from the beginning of the 20th century, his prints made between 1908 and 1938. In our time these prints are not particularly well known despite of a relatively large number. The printed works are overshadowed by his more well known book illustrations and his paintings in a naturalistic manner from the last part of the 19th century. The naturalistic manner maintains in his prints but in these works the compositions are less complex compared to the previous. Several graphic works have features in commen with some of Paul Cézanne's paintings, an artist who greately inspired Werenskiold. As a whole Werenskiold's prints rimind us of some of the cultural aspects in the Norwegian society in the early 1900s. This book places Werenskiold's prints in a national and European context. The oeuvre catalog contains 247 works, 85 intaglios and 162 lithographies. Erik Werenskiold's prints have not previously been presented in their entirety.​

Abstract

This book presents research results from the international comparative study TIMSS Advanced 2015, which investigates the competence of students taking the most advanced courses in mathematics and/or physics in the last year of upper secondary school. This is the third TIMSS Advanced study in which Norway has participated. As a result, we have good data for analyzing trends in competence from the nineties until 2015 for the students in question, which we may call experts in these subjects. In the previous TIMSS Advanced study, in 2008, a significant decline in achievement in both mathematics and physics for Norwegian students was found compared to the first TIMSS Advanced study in the 1990s. In 2015 we see some progress in mathematics, while the decline continues in physics. Even though the Norwegian decline from the nineties is stronger in physics, the Norwegian 2015 results are weaker in mathematics than in physics when compared to other countries. In Norway a relatively small percentage of the students take mathematics or physics in their last year of upper secondary school. In Sweden, France and Italy the percentages taking such courses are increasing; in Norway the tendency is the opposite. Algebra is found to be the most problematic content area in mathematics. This result corresponds with what has been found in many previous studies, both in primary school and in lower and upper secondary school. Part of the decline in physics may also be due to reduced mathematical ability, in particular in algebra. The deep decline in Norwegian physics results from the nineties to 2015 measured in TIMSS Advanced probably has many different causes. One factor could be that the physics courses in upper secondary school have changed qualitatively; they have gone from being in physics, to being about physics. This leads to a decoupling of physics and mathematics, which is something curriculum changes in mathematics and liberalization of the general study program structure in upper secondary school have also contributed to. A very positive result for Norway is that teachers score well on job satisfaction, while students score well on school climate parameters such as sense of school belonging and school safety, better than in most other countries. This again corresponds with previous results from primary and lower secondary school. The positive learning environment in Norwegian schools forms a good basis for improving student achievement in the future.

Abstract

This book describes the concept of content marketing in a Norwegian context. Its subtitle, meaning “concept, business models, legal aspects, ethics and practice”, is comprised of key words for each chapter. The concept chapter includes trends and historical roots, as well as a discussion of the definition of ‘content marketing’. The book is concerned about the practice of content marketing in a context where media are digitalized, and how digitalization is linked to changes in business models for the media. However, content marketing practices are challenging the legal framework as well as ethical restrictions in several ways. One example is freedom of expression concerning commercial content. Another is the debate on content marketing as native advertisements in editorial products, and the risk of mixing such commercial content with journalism. This book is the first to be published on this topic in the Norwegian language based on scientific research and including many examples from Norwegian practices.

Abstract

The nursing home resident of today is old and frail. Despite such a frailty, many residents are hospitalized, often with the intention of life-extension. Furthermore, rates of hospitalization varies considerably between countries, regions and institutions, even within smaller geographical areas. Even though relating to the same structural framework and conditions, distance to hospitals for instance, some nursing homes hospitalize considerably more than others. In this book, variation of hospitalization from nursing homes is analyzed and discussed, based on fieldwork from six institutions. Decisions concerning whether to hospitalize or not, are seen as relating to general regimes of practices at nursing homes; called The institutional practice.

Abstract

This anthology addresses ethical challenges that arise within the field of Internet research. Among the issues discussed in the book are the following: When is voluntary informed consent from research subjects required in using the Internet as a data source? How may researchers secure the privacy of research subjects in a landscape where the traditional public/private distinction is blurred and re-identification is a recurring threat? What are the central ethical and legal aspects of Internet research for individuals, groups, and society?
