  1. 1. Towards a theory of natural occupation: developing theoretical, methodological and empirical support for the relation between plot systems and urban processes

    Författare :Evgeniya Bobkova; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; types; urban diversity; urban-morphology; plot systems; statistical analysis; temporal evolution of built form; quantitative descriptions; natural occupation; morphological measures;

    Sammanfattning : Plot systems (or ‘plots’, ‘lots’, ‘parcels’, ‘land divisions’) is a commonly recognised structural component of urban form along with streets and buildings. They play a critical role in understanding urban processes in cities, not least of all because they link directly between the physical world and institutions, such as property rights. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Anthropogenic Open Land in Boreal Landscapes : Investigations into the Creation and Maintenance of Arable Fields on Swedish Farms

    Författare :Lovisa Solbär; Institutionen för kulturgeografi och ekonomisk geografi; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Landscape; timespace; time-geography; farming; boreal land use; time-economy; embedded values;

    Sammanfattning : The human-induced open land (cropland, pasture) in the predominantly forested boreal landscapes relies on arable land use; it thus represents an active intervention to hold back forest regrowth. The thesis investigates the practical management decisions by landholders on discrete farms, which in Sweden often comprise both forest and arable lands. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Online Together : A Sociological Study of the Concept of Togetherness and the Contemporary Conditions for Social Interaction

    Författare :Lovisa Eriksson; Michael Allvin; Bo Lewin; Simon Lindgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Togetherness; Social Presence; Computer-Mediated Communication; Microsociology; Sociologi; Sociology;

    Sammanfattning : The recent advances in digital communication technologies have altered the way in which people socialize on a day-to-day basis. A question that has arisen in relation to this is what being somewhere together actually means at a time when our interactions are no longer confined to shared physical places. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Small science on big machines: Politics and practices of synchrotron radiation laboratories

    Författare :Olof Hallonsten; Research Policy Institute (RPI); []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; big science; little science; sophistication; collectivization; European Synchrotron Radiation Facility; Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource; MAX-lab; scientific entrepreneurs; changing dynamics of science; Synchrotron radiation; research policy; science policy;

    Sammanfattning : Synchrotron radiation laboratories are large scientific facilities where various scientific experiments are carried out by the use of radiation produced by particle accelerators. Research with synchrotron radiation emerged in the 1960s and 1970s as a peripheral activity at particle physics laboratories. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Behind the Scenes of Rural Tourism : A Study of Entrepreneurship in Micro-Firms

    Författare :Jonathan Moshe Yachin; Dimitri Ioannides; Susanna Heldt Cassel; Szilvia Gyimóthy; Högskolan Dalarna; []

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is a study of entrepreneurship in tourism micro-firms in rural areas. It provides a close, behind-the-scenes look at how owner-managers of tourism micro-firms generate value, overcome limitations, and promote change through interactions with their customers, their local environment and actors in their social networks.
