    Den svenska sporthjälten: Kontinuitet och förändring i medieberättelsen om den svenska sporthjälten från 1920-talet till idag2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the media construction of five Swedish sports heroes, active from the 1920’s to the beginning of the 2000’s. The analyses are based on the assumption that sports heroes are social products that reflect the dominating ideals and values of a society or culture, and that the media plays an important role in this process. Firstly, the media provide the attention necessary for successful athletes to become publically known and, secondly, they create the stories in which some athletes are represented as heroes while others are represented as villains. The use of narrative theory in this thesis builds on the idea that a story is not merely a way of presenting information, but a way of creating meaning. A person becomes a hero when he or she is described as a hero in a heroic tale. To analyze the media construction of sports heroes is thus to analyze the media stories of them as heroes.

    In order to examine and compare the construction of sports heroes in the media, articles from daily press and magazines as well as broadcasts in radio and television have been analyzed. The results show that although each of the five heroes were valued and represented according to ideals and values specific of his or her time, there are similarities in the media representation of them that suggest that there is some degree of stability in the narrative of the Swedish sports hero over time. In many ways, the story of the Swedish sports hero is still intact since the 1920’s. However, this story is an ideal story and the process of constructing athletes as heroes has proved to be filled with compromise and contradictions. It can be argued that the media is more concerned with fitting the athletes into an already existing narrative of the Swedish sports hero than with representing them as individuals.

    Seen in a wider historical context, sports heroes represent an example of how national identity is constructed in the media. National identity is, as many theorists have shown, a dynamic and relational process. What is considered typically Swedish thus changes over time and in different contexts. In this process the social status of sports heroes helps to stabilize as well as legitimize dominating ideas of Swedish national identity.

    Karriärövergången för elittennisspelare studeras: recension av boken Kändisskap och statuspassager: Idrottslig identitet i upplevelseindustrins tjänst av Jonas Stier2014In: Idrottsforum.org/Nordic sport science forum, ISSN 1652-7224, Vol. 28 marsArticle, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det går knackigt för svensk tennis utanför landets gränser. I skrivande stund finns ingen svensk, man eller kvinna, i topp 100 på tennisens rankinglistor; faktum är att hela Norden representeras av blott två spelare på toppnivå, Finlands Jarkko Nieminen och Danmarks Caroline Wozniacki. I Sverige minns vi med saknad det så kallade svenska tennisundret. Under en följd av år producerade Sverige framgångsrika spelare på herrsidan, världsettor och topp 10-spelare, i långa banor. Vi minns kanske särskilt Björn Borg, Mats Wilander, Anders Järryd och Stefan Edberg från guldåren, och i ett något senare skede Jonas Björkman och Magnus Norman. Men det fanns åtskilliga fler, och för dem alla har livet förändrats drastiskt i och med idrottskarriärens slut. Det forskas faktiskt en hel del kring det som på svanka kallas karriärövergångar för idrottare, här hemma och internationellt. Ett bidrag till den forskningen är Jonas Stiers sociologiska undersökning av hur just ett antal svenska tennisspelares upplevde och handskades med övergången från firad världsstjärna till ”vanlig”, om än ovanligt rik, svensk. John Hellström, som själv forskar om idrottshjältar, har läst Stiers Kändisskap och statuspassager: Idrottslig identitet i upplevelseindustrins tjänst (Studentlitteratur), som trots bristande generaliserbarhet är värdefull på många sätt, inte minst när det gäller metodologins allmänna användbarhet.

    Abstract [sv]

    Välj en idrott som är populär i Sverige. Vinn i ett stort mästerskap i direktsänd tv. Lägg ovanpå det en dramaturgiskt intressant berättelse så har du formeln för att bli en svensk sporthjälte. Men om medierna tappar intresset blir berömmelsen kortvarig.

    Recruiting Immigrant Students to the Initial PE Teacher Education at the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences2017In: Education for All: Issues for Teacher Education / [ed] Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, Limerick; Ireland: Mary Immaculate College , 2017Conference paper (Refereed)

    Recruiting immigrant students to the initial PE teacher education at the Swedish School of Sort and Health Sciences

    Sweden is in many ways a multicultural society. Off all children living in Sweden around 20 % are themselves born or have parents who are born in another country. These children has also made an impact on Swedish sports. Today, research show that boys from immigrant families are as much a part of organized sports as children born in Sweden, while girls from immigrant families are less active in organized sports.

    Whereas organized sports in general show a similar pattern as society as a whole when it comes to children born in other countries, with the exception for girls, initial education for physical education (PE) does not. Studies reveals that the typical student in initial teacher education for PE is born in Sweden, grew up in the countryside and comes from families with limited tradition of higher education. In The Swedish School of sport and health sciences (GIH), only 9 % of the students in the PE teacher education program where immigrants or came from immigrant families. In this regard, the initial PE teacher education in Sweden faces a huge challenge.

    In our presentation we will discuss some of the strategies that GIH has adopted to recruit students with other backgrounds than the typical. We will also address some of the challenges that comes with this regarding different cultural backgrounds and basic knowledge of the Swedish sporting culture.
