  1. 1. Vulnerability and Power : Social Justice Organizing in Rockaway, New York City, after Hurricane Sandy

    Author : Sara Bondesson; Daniel Nohrstedt; Elin Bjarnegård; Annica Kronsell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Social vulnerability; Disaster risk reduction; Social movements; Power; Empowerment; Hurricane Sandy; Rockaway; Statskunskap; Political Science; social vulnerability; disaster risk reduction; social movements; power; empowerment; Statsvetenskap med inriktning mot krishantering och internationell samverkan; Statsvetenskap med inriktning mot krishantering och internationell samverkan;

    Abstract : This is a study about disasters, vulnerability and power. With regards to social justice organizing a particular research problem guides the work, specifically that emancipatory projects are often initiated and steered by privileged actors who do not belong to the marginalized communities they wish to strengthen, yet the work is based on the belief that empowerment requires self-organizing from within.

  2. 2. Around power ideals : From Fröberg's conjecture to zonotopal algebra

    Author : Gleb Nenashev; Boris Shapiro; Volkmar Welker; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study power algebras, which are quotient of polynomial rings by power ideals. We will study Hilbert series of such ideals and their other properties. We consider two important special cases, namely, zonotopal ideals and generic ideals. Such ideals have a lot combinatorial properties. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gender, Power and Post-Bureaucracy : Work Ideals in IT Consulting

  4. 4. Power ideals, Fröberg conjecture and Waring problems

    Author : Alessandro Oneto; Boris Shapiro; Ralf Fröberg; Kristian Ranestad; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; power ideals; Hilbert function; fat points; Waring problem; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis is divided into two chapters. First, we want to study particularclasses of power ideals, with particular attention to their relation with the Fröberg conjecture on the Hilbert series of generic ideals. READ MORE

  5. 5. The power of character : Middle-class masculinities, 1800–1900

    Author : David Tjeder; Arne Jarrick; Yvonne Hirdman; Åsa Bergenheim; Stockholms universitet; []

Mosse; advice manuals; autobiographies; alcohol; gambling; History; Historia; historia; History;

    Abstract : This is a study of continuity and change in middle-class conceptions of ideal manhood. My theoretical cues are the notions of the male as an unproblematised and genderless norm, masculinity as homosocial, and George L. Mosse’s use of countertypes. Notions of passions, youth, and character were important throughout the century. READ MORE
