The theoretical framework is based on social constructivism from the perspective symbolic interactionism focusing on notions such as heteroglossin, dialogicality, alterity and selfidentity. The data derives from a qualitative research and the collection of data was made by inviting students and teachers from the Swedish National Defence Collage to Focus group discussions. The discussions are audio-recorded and transcribed in its entirety as close to the oral language as possible.
