Abstract [en]

 Tis chapter summarises some of the key takeaways from my 2016 doctoral thesis, ‘Educated Gaze on Flowers: Te Formation of Vocational Knowing in Floristry Education’. As compared to an article-based thesis, the focus is less on the content of the (four) separate articles and more on the introductory chapter of a compilation thesis,9 originally meant to deepen and frame the separate investigations behind each of the articles, thereby conveying more of the overarching results in parallel with the overall theoretical reasoning. Te focus of the thesis is the formation of vocational knowing within adult and upper secondary foristry education in Sweden. Te research is based on a sociocultural perspective on educational practice (Säljö, 2011, 2013; Wertsch, 1998) and a relational view of knowing (e.g. Carlgren, 2015; Molander, 1996). Te results contribute to understanding the schooling of the gaze (Goodwin, 1994; Grasseni, 2009, 2011), as appropriated by participants in the interaction. Floristry vocational knowing is shown to evolve in the temporal dimension, encompassing (1) fnancial and aesthetic 9 Te reason for this choice is twofold. First, there seems to be little point in a word-by-word repeating of the ‘English summary’ from the original thesis. Second, the focal points for two of the four original articles were altered during the publication process. * Correspondence: camilla.gafvels@konstfack.se137values, (2) verbal and non-verbal communication, (3) botanical materials and tools and (4) making. Te respective roles and interrelations of these four components of vocational knowing in foristry are discussed. Te contribution of the thesis is twofold. First, the thesis contributes to the understanding of vocational education through a close appraisal of the formation of vocational knowing. Second, in exploring the previously under-researched feld of Swedish foristry vocational education, the thesis bridges a gap in the existing knowledge regarding the evolution of Swedish vocational education. As foristry education is little researched internationally, the thesis also contributes to the wider body of international research.
