Sammendrag av avhandlingen:
This dissertation contributes to the implementation of the interdisciplinary topic public health and life skills in the Norwegian Language Arts in upper secondary school. It combines humanities and social science approaches with the aim of examining teaching materials, methods and teachers’ perspectives based on 13 qualitative interviews. First, the challenges that current conceptualizations of public health and life skills can create for teachers are examined. Second, literature as teaching material is discussed, and finally the transferability of narrative medicine to the teaching of life skills is examined. Among the dissertation’s key findings is that there is an impression that public health and life skills have been introduced as a response to increasing prevalence of mental illness among young people, which can affect teachers’ role and purpose in society. Several findings indicate that it can be challenging to find a place for life skills in the Norwegian Language Arts, due to a focus on exams and management by objectives, among other things. On the other hand, there are possibilities for including life skills as a part of a Bildung perspective. Literature creates an aesthetic space where experiences related to life skills, such as dichotomies, stereotypes, typecasting and externalization of problems can be investigated. Affective narratology can also help to increase the understanding of emotional structures. Narrative medicine demonstrates how fiction can unite disciplines, without compromising their respective professional frameworks. Narrative medicine is based on the connection between close reading of literature and the development of attention to others.
