Strategic Colonels: The Discretion of Swedish Force Commanders in Afghanistan 2006–2013
Magnus Johnsson
Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2017, 282 s.
Skrifter utgivna av Statsvetenskapliga föreningen i Uppsala 198

This dissertation examines the role of military officers as policy implementers by investigating the discretion of Swedish force commanders in the multinational military campaign in Afghanistan between 2006 and 2013. By developing an analytical framework that takes both an outside-in and an inside-out perspective, and that encompasses both the objective implications that structural factors project on force commanders as well as their subjective perceptions of those structural factors, and applying that framework to a range of official documents as well as unique interview data, the thesis describes the discretion that force commanders have had in interpreting, choosing and shaping their mission and concept of operations...

Ironins skiftningar — jagets förvandlingar: Om romantisk ironi och subjektets paradox i texter av P. D. A. Atterbom
Katarina Båth
Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2017, 328 s.
Skrifter utgivna av Litteraturvetenskapliga institutionen vid Uppsala universitet, 48

This dissertation explores the intimate relationship between irony and romantic subjectivity, by drawing on feminist psychoanalytical theory, via an examination of the shiftings of irony, and humor, in the works of the Swedish romanticist P. D. A. Atterbom (1790–1855). It looks at the critical role played by irony in the formation of Romantic subjectivity, and explores irony’s potential to undermine dualistically gendered notions of subject-object relations. For Atterbom, irony is an aesthetic concept closely related to drama, informed not only by German Romantic-ironic theorists such as Friedrich Schlegel and Jean Paul, but also by the works of Shakespeare, Ludwig Tieck, and E. T. A. Hoffmann...

Walking the Plank of the Entrepreneurial University: The little spin-out that could?
Nina Fowler
Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2017, 212 s.
Uppsala Dissertations from the Faculty of Science and Technology, 130

Creating spinout companies (USOs) from university research is one focus of innovation policy. The phenomenon features in two main fields of enquiry: academic entrepreneurship studies, and literature on academic capitalism and the entrepreneurial university. Studies have explored the academic entrepreneur, the development stages of these nascent ventures, and the tools universities can provide to encourage and assist in the spinout process. This literature is however limited in that it is overwhelmingly concerned with resources, and little is known about how the USO relates to the parent research institution over time... [läs mer]
