    Throughout this paper, we will seek to find and discuss which ideas of family and whiteness, that are represented in Danish narratives about transnational adoption, by looking at two specific cases: the book Kære Zoe Ukhona by Pelle Hvenegaard and the documentary Mercy mercy – Adoptionens pris by Kathrine W. Kjær. Firstly, we will describe the historical process of transnational adoption, and critical adoption studies which this paper is inspired by. The theoretical framework of this paper is a combination of the two theorists Sarah Ahmed and Gloria Wekker. The focus will be on Ahmed’s concepts of affect and affective economies, and Wekker’s concept of white innocence. Secondly, through an analysis of our two cases, we will discuss and challenge how transnational adoptions are maintained through Western ideals of family, and how emotions are exchanged, negotiated, and demanded in the pursuit of the family ideal. Moreover, we will examine how the adopters’ see themselves as unproblematic and innocent, which helps to present adoption as an unproblematic way of creating a family. Finally, we are going to discuss the adoptees' role in transnational adoption, and the issues they may experience being adopted transnationally. In addition, we will discuss the reason why transnational adoption is maintained as unproblematic, despite the massive critique it has faced. In conclusion, we can surmise that a number of different elements maintain transnational adoption as an institution, including notions about the idealization of family, power relations between the global north and the global south, and economic and affective interests which are embedded in transnational adoption.

    The aim of this study is to examine which factors have affected the creation of a European identity amongst young people living in the European Union, and in which ways the European Union works to strengthen it. In this paper European identity has been defined as containing two categories, respectively a cultural identity and an institutionalized identity. This was done by using the theories of Anthony D. Smith on European identity, Neal G. Jesse and Kristen P. Williams on institutionalized identity and David Easton’s theory on legitimacy. The concept was elucidated through a review of the current literature on the subject. Using quantitative methods, specifically a multivariable logistic regression analysis on survey data from the Eurobarometer, factors affecting young people’s European identity was identified to be trust in European institutions and shared values. Furthermore, this paper found that The European Union tries to strengthen the collective sense of European identity in young people through promoting mobility and inclusion in decision-making.

    The following project is embedded in the subject of Cultural Encounters and investigates what meanings are applied to ‘dual citizenship’. The aim of the project is to change the focus on dual citizenship from migration or institutional aspects to the ascribed meaning of people who live in Denmark and feel Danish but simultaneously desire to obtain citizenship in another country. In the project, we also wish to reflect on the idea that it is only possible to feel a belonging to and to be recognized as a citizen in one nation. The empirical material constitutes both quantitative and qualitative research data. The data has been retrieved from an online survey answered by 284 respondents and from four interviews. The paper opens with an identification of the problem of interest and with an introduction to the methodological considerations related to the project that use mixed methods and an abductive means of scientific strategy.To support the research-question, the project draws on the theoretical knowledge of citizenship using legal, political and identity manifestations. The theoretical knowledge is based on the theories of imagined communities by Benedict Anderson, identity and categorization by Richard Jenkins, racialization of Muslims by Amani Hassani, and belonging by Margit Fauser, Eveline Resienauer and Thomas Faist.The analysis finds that sense of belonging is a crucial aspect for having or wanting to obtain dual citizenship. Citizenship becomes a marker of identity that a person can use in social life to either abstain from ideas connected to the other nation or to have the power to show belonging to another nation. This is shown in both the external and internal categorizations that are in the center of the problem of dual citizenship. The analysis is then used in a discussion of the duality between a formal citizenship and a cultural citizenship, as well as an assessment of the validity of the projects analysis and use of mixed methods.The project concludes that a more pronounced sense of belonging is apparent for those who have obtained formal dual citizenship compared to those who have not. Furthermore, we found that while practical factors are important to the concept of dual citizenship, emotional factors appear to be more significant. We believe this is especially visible in ideas concerning a sense of belonging, such as language abilities, kinship and name, external and internal categorization and expected obligations towards the other nation. Dual citizenship can therefore be argued to be used as a legitimization of a sense of belonging.

    A citizen-suggestion (Borgerforslag) in Denmark put forth in Janurary 2022 promotes the idea that couples consisting of two men should have equal legal opportunity as straight and lesbian couples of being regocnised as co-parents, introducing the concept of co-father (medfar). This led to public debate on questions of gay rights, reproductive rights and ethics concerning child rearing and new reproductive technologies such as surrogacy. We conduct a discursive analysis of a pamphlet sent to all new parents in Denmark to identify hegemonic understandings of parenthood, the positions of mom and dad, and understandings of the biological and emotional aspects of parenthood. On this basis we build a discursive analysis of a number of articles and comments published in Danish newspapers during the month of January 2022 as they relate to the citizen-suggestion. The discursive analysis is expanded with perspectives from affect theory and the concept of queer assemblage to discover how the discursive field is negotiating the nodal points. We analyse ideas of biology, the good of the children, the frame of the nuclear family as the only acceptable option for non-heterosexual parents, among others. We end the paper with a discussion of the influence of power structures and counter-discourse on the questions raised (and not raised) in the public debate.

    This report will revolve around the interaction that humans have with robots in their dailylife, through testing with an existing technology which is seen in many houses, a robotvacuum. By presenting a view on autonomous robots, we generate a suggested view onhow existing and future servicerobots can affect our lives. In terms of methodology, RapidPrototyping and Interviews, will be the most prominent methods to gather informationand create a tangible prototype. Through the view of designers and users, we will attemptto show the complexities of the relations, which occur between humans and robots, bytaking multiple problems into account when viewing technology.

    Can one refer to the biomedical laboratory scientists’ profession as being gendered – and thereby potentially include some, and possibly exclude other? In this master's dissertation we examine how gender plays a role when communicating about the education of biomedical laboratory scientists, and also whether communication influences on the unequal gender variation in the admission of students. The empirical production consists of a questionnaire, a website analysis, and group interviews. We invite biomedical laboratory scientist students and newly graduated students to participate in a collaborative co-creation. Working on the analysis we are inspired by theoretical thinkers, including Louise Phillips’ IFADIA model, which we use in our analysis of the qualitative data. We include perspectives by gender researchers Judith Butler, Dorthe Staunæs, and Dorte Marie Søndergaard. The theorists are our inspiration when analysing how gender is shaped through language, culture and historically. We conclude that especially norms about gender and linguistic reproduction of stereotypes play a role in the communication of the education of biomedical laboratory scientists. Kan man tale om, at bioanalytikerfaget er kønnet – og derved potentielt inkluderer nogen og muligt ekskluderer andre? I denne masterafhandling undersøges, hvordan køn spiller en rolle i kommunikationen af bioanalytikeruddannelsen og om kommunikationen influerer på, at kønsfordelingen i optaget på bioanalytikeruddannelsen er så ulige, som det er tilfældet. Vores empiriproduktion udgøres af en spørgeskemaundersøgelse, websiteanalyse samt fokusgruppeinterviews. Vi inviterer bioanalytikerstuderende/nyligt dimitterede bioanalytikere med i en kollaborativ samskabelsesproces, hvor vi inddrager kreative metoder. I analysearbejdet er vi inspireret af teoretiske tænkere, herunder Louise Phillips’ IFADIA-model, der skaber rammen for vores analyse af den kvalitative empiri. Derudover inddrager vi kønsforskning, hvor Judith Butler, Dorthe Staunæs og Dorte Marie Søndergaard er vores inspirationskilder. Teorierne anvendes i analysen af, hvordan køn formes gennem sprog, kultur og historisk. Afhandlingen konkluderer, at især normer om køn og sproglig reproduktion af stereotyper spiller en rolle i kommunikationen af bioanalytikeruddannelsen.
