    Författare :Gunilla Elmgren Frykberg; Jörgen Borg; Helga Hirschfeld; Charlotte Häger-Ross; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; sit-to-walk; movement analysis; force analysis; postural control; Berg Balance Scale; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi; Rehabilitation Medicine; Rehabiliteringsmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: The principal aims of this research were 1) to extend existing knowledge of the everyday sit-to-walk (STW) transfer in subjects with stroke and in matched controls by exploring temporal, kinematic, and kinetic aspects, and 2) to investigate the relations between some clinical and laboratory measures of postural control and locomotion in stroke rehabilitation and research. Methods: Ten community-living subjects with stroke (mean age 59 years) and ten matched controls were enrolled in the STW studies (Studies I, II, and IV). LÄS MER

  2. 2. The Making of Resistance : Brazil’s Landless Movement and Narrative Enactment

    Författare :Markus Lundström; Paulina de los Reyes; Fredrik Uggla; Stellan Vinthagen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MST; Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra; peasant; Brazil; social movement; autonomy; constructive resistance; historiography; narrative; collective memory; identity; subject formation; focus group interview; corpus analysis; meta-analysis; Economic History; ekonomisk historia;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation explores the story of Brazil’s Landless Movement: its historiographical prequel, its narrative components, its modifications, its enactment. The study derives from a non-essentialist understanding of the resistance agent, here construed as political subject – a collective of individuals, contingently unified in a specific political struggle, not necessarily representing a mutual material need, nor a common identity.
