I have then applied my findings to different texts that represent the swedish collective housing movement in the 1930s and today. My findings are that the movement has been individualized, but that this does not fully explain the difference between the movement in its beginning and the movement today. I suggest that the movement be studied as not one, but two seperate movements, and that todays movement be analyzed from the perspective of new collective identities. (Less)
