Reading, traditions and negotiations: Reading activities in Swedish classrooms 1967-1969, funded by the Swedish Research Council 2013-2017, ref 2012-4140.

This project is designed to create new insights into and a new understanding of the Swedish reading culture of the 20th century. Through the analysis of a unique historical collection of sound and video recordings of a large number of primary school lessons from the late 1960’s the project will create a strong platform from which to discuss change in the reading practices of children today. A longer description of the project can be found here.
