    As fast as possible rather than well protected Experiences of football clothes2011In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 3, p. 83-99Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenological view that human beings ‘take in’ the world and experience themselves as subjects through their bodies as a starting point, players in both men’s and women’s teams, kit men, purchasing managers, sporting directors, and a coach from Swedish football clubs have been interviewed about their perceptions and experiences of football clothing. Since the body is both a feeling and knowing entity, clothes are seen as components of body techniques, facilitating or restricting body movements in a material way, but also as creators of senses, like lightness and security; in both ways, influencing the knowledge in action that playing football is. In this article, the content of the interviews is discussed in relation to health. When clothes are primarily related to a biomedical view that health means no injuries and illnesses, warm pants and shin guards are mentioned by players, who are rather ambivalent to both, since these garments counteract a feeling of lightness that is connected to the perception of speed. Players want to be fast rather than well protected. If clothes, instead, are interpreted as related to a broad conception of health, including mental, social, and physical components, the relation body–space-in-between–clothes seems to be an important aspect of clothing. Dressed in a sports uniform, unable to choose individual details, the feeling of subjectivity is related to wearing ‘the right-size’ clothes. Also new textile technology, like injury-preventing and speed-increasing tight compression underwear, is perceived by players based on feelings that they are human subjects striving for both bodily and psychological well-being.

    Design, craft and culture: Some remarks on production of textile craft in the companies Vävkompaniet and Designbrenner2011In: Conference Proceedings, papers from the conference Current issues in European Cultural Studies, Linköping University Electronic Press , 2011, p. 81-93Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    According to anthropological research it is fundamental that aspects of conceptuality and materiality are tied together in handicraft products. Objects have a social history and a cultural biography as well as a material form (Appadurai 1996). Thus analyzing crafting knowledge must involve both looking for bodily competences performed in the meeting with the materials (hand operations, touch, rhythm etc) and mapping cultural meanings on craft. In the ongoing project “Design, craft and culture” this is done through visual/sensory ethnography. Participant observations with video-filming and interviewing are done at Vävkompaniet, a cooperative running handicraft shop, and Design Brenner, private family company for tufting. This paper brings up cultural meanings on craft, expressed by the craft practitioners themselves. What producers in both companies tell about work practices, inspiration, how they relate to the textile tradition etc. is discussed. Their definitions of the concepts craft, art craft, sloyd and design are especially highlighted. This is important since debate regarding craft as material expression versus craft as conceptual art implies different focuses when it comes to what counts as important knowledge - skill in using the proper raw material and technique to make useful products, or skill to materialize ideas in creative ways?

    Abstract [en]

    By analyzing a wide range of settings – from corporate firms and public administration to everyday domestic routines – the book offers an in-depth understanding of the complexities of overflow phenomena. It questions when, where and why overflow emerges and for whom this is a problem or a blessing.

    First- and second-order change as symmetry and symmetry breaking in folklore text content evolution: From Heraclitus to Lévi-Strauss2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We distinguish between first- and second order change and identify the former with perpetual alternation on an existential plane, the second with moving out into existential space. The first type can be demonstrated by two antagonistic processes inherent in a Markov chain of two pairs of complementary values: the chain gradually alternates between the opposite terminal states and the pattern is symmetrical. Such an existential plane catches an essential feature of Heraclitus’ philosophy, and can be illustrated by examples from classical Greek mythology. The same material also exemplifies Lévi-Strauss’ formula of myth, symmetrical in its weak and asymmetrical in 2 its canonical form. Since the weak form equals the orbit of a Klein group, we hypothesize that the canonical form, and thereby symmetry breaking, can be generated by element exchange between two respective Klein groups. The framework for such processes is text variation in folklore, described by ethnosemiotics.

    Abstract [en]

    Catalogs project subject field experience onto a multidimensional map which is then converted to a hierarchical list. In the case of the Aarne-Thompson-Uther Tale Type Catalog (ATU), this subject field is the global pattern of tale content defining tale types as canonical motif sequences. To extract and visualize such a map, we considered ATU as a corpus and ana-lysed two segments of it, “Supernatural adversaries” (types 300-399) in particular and “Tales of magic” (types 300-749) in general. The two corpora were scru-tinized for multiple motif co-occurrences and visualized by two-mode clustering of a bag-of-motif co-occurrences matrix. Findings indicate the presence of canonical content units above motif level as well. The organization scheme of folk narratives utilizing motif sequences is reminiscent of nucleotid sequences in the genetic code

    Conceptual machinery of the mythopoetic mind: Attis, a case study2015In: Proceedings of QI-15, 9th International Quantum Interaction Symposium, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In search for the right interpretation regarding a body of related content, we screened a small corpus of myths about Attis, a minor deity from the Hellenistic period in Asia Minor to identify the noncommutativity of key concepts used in storytelling. Looking at the protagonist's typical features, our experiment showed incompatibility with regard to his gender and downfall. A crosscheck for entanglement found no violation of a Bell inequality, its best approximation being on the border of the local polytope.

    Multilingual and Semantic Extension of Folk Tale Catalogues2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We address the multilingual and semantic upgrades of two digital catalogues of motifs and types in folk-literature: the Thompson’s Motif-Index of Folk-Literature (TMI) and the Aarne-Thompson-Uther classification system (ATU). The methods convert, translate, and represent their digitized content in terms of various (so far often implicit) structural and linguistic components. The results will enable (i) utilizing these resources for semi-automatic analysis and indexing of texts of relevant genres, in a multilingual setting, and (ii) pre-processing the data, for analysing motif sequences in folktale plots. We plan to publish the resulting data, which can be made available in the Linked Open Data (LOD) framework.

    Taking part or taking over? Children’s participation in culture consumption2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper uses the concept of participation as an analytical framework for analysing the ways that preschool children make use of the space, artefacts and people that cultural activities afford them and the subjectivities that are thus produced. Using ethnographic methods children’s and their caregivers’ perspectives on three cultural activities are sought and explored. In the analysis participation emerges as a situated mode of action exercised in events by the children. The results are related to research on childhood, participation and empowerment.

    Landing Propp in Interaction Space: First Steps Toward Scalable Open Domain Narrative Analysis With Predication-based Semantic Indexing2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we explore the possibility of applying high-dimensionalvector representations of concept-relation-concept triplets, which have been successfullyapplied to model a small set of relationship types in the biomedicaldomain, to the task of modeling folk tales. In doing so, our ultimate aim is todevelop representations of narratives through which their underlying structurecan be compared. The current paper describes our progress toward this aim, withemphasis on addressing the technical challenges involved in moving from therelatively constrained set of relations that have been extracted from biomedicaltext to the much larger set of unnormalized relations that have been extractedfrom the open domain. A toy example using graded vectors demonstrates that ourapproach will be feasible once more material will be added to the test collection.

    Linking Motif Sequences to Tale Types by Machine Learning2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract units of narrative content called motifs constitute sequences, also known as tale types. However whereas the dependency of tale types on the constituent motifs is clear, the strength of their bond has not been measured this far. Based on the observation that differences between such motif sequences are reminiscent of nucleotide and chromosome mutations in genetics, i.e., constitute “narrative DNA”, we used sequence mining methods from bioinformatics to learn more about the nature of tale types as a corpus. 94% of the Aarne-Thompson-Uther catalogue (2249 tale types in 7050 variants) was listed as individual motif strings based on the Thompson Motif Index, and scanned for similar subsequences. Next, using machine learning algorithms, we built and evaluated a classifier which predicts the tale type of a new motif sequence. Our findings indicate that, due to the size of the available samples, the classification model was best able to predict magic tales, novelles and jokes.
