    Display of Instruments on Seventeenth-Century Astronomical Frontispieces2014In: Scientific Instruments on Display / [ed] Silke Ackermann, Richard Kremer, Mara Miniati, Brill Academic Publishers, 2014, p. 199-215Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores how the illustrations in seventeenth-century astronomical books address consumption. It asks how instruments are displayed on frontispieces and illustrated title pages. Illustrations on the first pages of the book, when there are any, advertise the content. This was where the producers of the book could communicate to the user why it should be bought, read, and further used. I am particularly interested in the kinds of settings in which the instruments are displayed, in the human actions to which they are connected, and in how these images are referred to in the text, particularly as concerns consumption.

    Den upptagna rösten: kassettbandets roll vid Foucaults Paris-föreläsningar och i hans Iran-reportage 19782015In: Lychnos, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 165-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the fall of 1978 Michel Foucault went to Iran to study the revolutionary movements first handedly. Largely ignoring the scholarly debate regarding whether his observations were accurate, reasonable, embarrassing, critical, naïve, consistent or not, I wish instead to turn the attention of Foucault’s encounter with Iranian protests in a different direction. A closer study of Michel Foucault’s observations in Iran as published in the Italian newspaper Corriere della sera at the time will reveal his strong interest in the media technologies used in the revolutionary struggle. Foucault is particularly keen on tracking the informal infrastructures of cassette tape trading. He reports of an entire communications network based on cassette tapes and players with participants from commercial, religious and other social communities parallel to the government’s broadcasts. According to Foucault in 1978, these grass root technologies will ultimately determine the outcome of the revolution. To be sure, the usages of the cassette tape were no novelty to Michel Foucault. For years, his series of lectures at the Collège de France had been overcrowded not only with listeners but with tape players spinning on his desk by the dozen, like some intellectual counterpart to the bootlegging of rock music performances. In this article, I argue that Foucault did have something explicit to say about the power of media and that it was insightful yet limited in scope. In the process of this argument, I find it necessary not only to ask about the role of small media in political battle but also about the status of the lecture – taped or not – in the body of work of an author. From the vantage point of the compact cassette tape, I try to demonstrate how this technology ended up supporting profoundly different uses among activists and audiences in Paris and Iran in the seventies.

    Plane Iron or Sámi Hide Scraper? A Puzzling Edge Tool from the Iron Age

    This article addresses the function, use and ethnic affiliation of small iron edge tools of type Rygh 416 (reproduced by O. Rygh in Norske Oldsager in 1885). These are known from many excavated graves and settlement sites especially in Mid-Scandinavia, mainly dating from the Migration and Merovingian Periods (fifth/sixth–eighth centuries AD), but also from at least two places further to the south: the centres for shipbuilding, trade and crafts at Lundeborg on Funen and Paviken on Gotland. The author rejects the possibility that this kind of tool was used as a hide scraper, with a transverse shaft of wood, as recently proposed. Several characteristics of the edge tools found, together with their find contexts, strongly conflict with this notion. Instead the author adheres to the traditional opinion that it is probably a matter of a North-European type of plane iron, although no complete plane with such an iron has been found so far. Possible applications may have been the manufacture of ships at places such as Lundeborg and Paviken, and skis and sledges in Mid-Scandinavia.

    Arguments are also put forward rejecting another conclusion drawn in recent research, namely that this kind of tool represents a specific Sámi material culture. The tool is in fact known from a number of disparate milieus. Thus, it is likely to have been used across ethnic barriers – in so far it is possible to speak about such barriers in Scandinavia during the period in question.

Firstly, the ambition is to analyze the role of the government in relation to private industry in the development of the nuclear power infrastructure in Sweden in the period of 1945-1970. Secondly, the purpose is to account for what was actually made in terms of education, research and financial funding in “the Swedish line” and to assess its importance for the swift take over by the light water reactor system.

    Abstract [en]

    Olaus Magnus, Archbishop of Uppsala, published Historia de Gentibus Septentrionalibus in Rome in 1555. This encyclopedic, illustrated work on the customs and history of the Nordic people became popular and it was translated into several European languages during the following decades. In this article, a special focus is given to the various instances where Olaus Magnus comments on fire, light and lighting devices in Scandinavia, such as the symbolic meaning of fire and light at wedding ceremonies, lighting the guild feasts, light in Christian processions and in the church, lighting in wintertime, light and fire in summertime, fire and lights during warfare, birds and lights, and fishing by means of fire.

    Finally, the evidence provided by Olaus Magnus is compared with other sources, and what archival sources reveal about the use of light and lighting devices at Häme and Turku Castles in Finland during the same period.

    After a brief bibliographical sketch, Duhem's professional interests in chemistry are distinguished from his several other interests and related to his general concerns with the development of thermodynamics. His account of chemical formulas is described in sufficient detail to convey why he thought no atomist presuppositions were involved, and some of his reasons for questioning atomism are discussed. The article concludes with a discussion of his understanding of the bearing of ancient alternatives to atomism on the interpretation of the science of his time.

    Rockefeller: En klimatsmart historia2019Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en rafflande och paradoxal historia som visar hur en av världens mäktigaste finans- och oljefamiljer finansierat miljö- och klimatforskning sedan 1950-talet och medverkat till att utforma klimatpolitiska åtgärder sedan 1980-talet.

    Rockefellerfamiljens långvariga kamp mot klimathotet innehåller inslag av sofistikerade propagandatekniker, futuristiska framtidsvisioner, nyandlig filosofi samt en dröm om en perfekt utopisk värld där evolutionen står under människans kontroll (Människa 2.0). Denna dröm och lösning kan dock få svåra konsekvenser för mänsklighetens överlevnad som släkte. Rockefeller Foundations uttalade mission att ”främja mänsklighetens välbefinnande över hela världen” har en mörk baksida.

    Interactive media technologies challenges and risks among youth in Sweden.: 11 children’s and 11 parents’ thoughts and experiences about Internet and video games2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Interactive media technologies like the Internet and video games have opened new avenues of opportunity for many, yet at the same time they represent new challenges and risks, especially for young people.

    In our study, eleven families were interviewed. Their perceptions, experiences and risk management are described in this paper. The children we interviewed were not high media consumers. The vast majority appeared to have a positive attitude towards the Internet, and had learned to handle common interactive media challenges and risk. Nonetheless some online behaviors which we consider risky were indeed commonly practiced. The most commonly encountered risk experienced by children in our study was exposure to undesirable content. Yet, in a group of eleven children two had been victim of cyberbullying and one had been harassed by some classmate or family member.

    The most recurrent negative comments parents made about the internet or video games and children were about the danger of being contacted by strangers, as well as the excessive use of the interactive media technologies.

    Investigations into the origin of Einstein’s Sink2018In: Studium: Tijdschrift voor Wetenschaps- en Universiteits-Geschiedenis, ISSN 1876-9055, E-ISSN 2212-7283, Vol. 11, no 4, p. 260-268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Einstein’s sink is a well-known object among physics and astronomy students at Leiden University. Stories about its origin have been passed down since it was moved to the large lecture room of the then newly built Oort Building in 1998. These stories claim that it was seen as an Einstein relic by the physics faculty, kept close to inspire young minds. After researching this story, I found that the sink is from the early 20th century and that it once stood in the large lecture room of the Kamerlingh Onnes Laboratory in Leiden. It is likely that at this time it was used by many scientists, including Einstein. However, my research also shows that the move from the KOL was done purely for financial reasons and had nothing to do with Einstein. It is possible that the story was made up to conceal this fact, creating a more appealing reason for these cutbacks. The sink is seen by many as a connection to Einstein’s and the university’s past and is liked for this fact and not the aforementioned legend.

    Abstract [sv]

    Mellan 1985 och 1986 sändes i Sveriges Radio P1 programmet Datorernas Värld. Programmet var unikt i en svensk kontext då det utgjorde ett tidigt försök till publik trådlös fildelning. Datorernas Värld sände under nattetid ut datorprogram (kod) i ljudform. Dessa ljud kunde sedan spelas in på kassett. Kassetten var vid den här tiden ett vanligt lagringsmedium för hemdatorer och på så sätt kunde de inspelade radiosändningarna användas i datorernas bandstationer. Det är många aspekter av detta kortvariga fenomen som är intressanta. Som redan nämnts så är ansatsen att bedriva publik trådlös fildelning (i potentiellt stor skala) fascinerande i sig. Vidare är ljudkassettens roll i den tidiga delningen av kod intressant. I och med att datorkod kunde representeras som ljud blev kassetten för första gången i någon mening multimedial (när koden exekverades av datorn kunde den aktualisera inte bara ljud och musik utan också animationer, grafik och ’interaktionslogik’).

    Som praktik betraktat finns också intressanta aspekter som kan sägas grundas i kassettens materiella begränsningar (och dess samspel med radion som medium). Till exempel så fanns många problem rörande behovet av perfekta inspelningar (med rätt inspelningsvolym, utan avbrott, med rätt vinkel på in/avspelningshuvudet). Kassetten kommer dock, trots dessa svårigheter, att under 1980-talet att användas i ett flertal samspel med andra medier och utgöra en central, men outforskad del av fildelning och fildelningskulturers framväxt. Det blir därmed intressant att fråga sig: vilka samspel ingick kassetten och hemdatorn i och vilken betydelse hade dessa för fildelningens framväxt i Sverige? I detta kapitel kommer vi börja besvara den frågan genom att fokusera på just radioprogrammet Datorernas värld och dess uppbyggnad, innehåll och ambition. Utifrån denna analys kommer kapitlet sedan dra upp riktlinjer för ett större forskningsområde kring intermedialitet och tidig fildelning.

    Atomic Fish: Sublime and Non-Sublime Nuclear Nature Imaginaries2018In: Azimuth, ISSN 2282-4863, Vol. 6, no 12, p. 59-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I articulate a tension between sublime and non-sublime nuclear nature imaginaries through an investigation of four types of atomic fish practices in and around nuclear power plants: fish farms, sports fishing, management of fish in cooling water systems, and finally, test fishing as part of environmental monitoring programs. Nuclear technology is generally understood as exceptional, be it from a utopian or a dystopian point of view. This understanding, combined with the sociotechnical imaginary of containment, forms the basis for an (inherently contradictory) nuclear technological sublime. In contrast to this dominant imaginary, I suggest that there is a partly interrelated, partly parallel, set of nuclear imaginaries characterized by domestication, normality and the non-sublime, discernible through mundane activities such as atomic fish practices. The existence of fish farming at nuclear power plants, along with sports fishing in the surrounding waters, shapes an understanding of atomic fish as a normal, or even slightly improved human diet, to harvest or to hunt, while the controlling practices of managing and testing fish in cooling water systems and environmental monitoring build an imaginary of normality based on everyday routines. Domesticated nuclear natures therefore signify, on the one hand, a containment of the exceptional aspects and, on the other hand, normalizing practices on the household scale. I conclude that domestication of nuclear natures must not only imply the control and containment of something exceptional or wild in a sublime sense, it can also denote normalization without grandeur. The nuclear nature imaginary may be completely non-impressive and non-sublime, still it is highly decisive for local perceptions of the nuclear technology.

    Abstract [en]

    The terminology of ‘social engineers’ and ‘social engineering’ has been used in divergent ways in different historical contexts. Against the backdrop of the predominantly negative usages of recent decades, not least in critical evaluations of the Swedish welfare state, this article brings out the application that originally turned the terms into common goods. The business career of the expressions started in 1894 with an essay by the relatively radical Dutch industrialist J. C. Van Marken, and received its last major impetus in a book by the moderate American social reformer W. H. Tolman in 1909 (in French 1910). The main idea was that there was a parallel function to fill, alongside that of technical expertise, within modern industry. Dealing with human beings, solving problems within (and perhaps around) the workplace, was just as important for private companies as handling materials and machinery, not least in terms of efficiency and profitability due to motivation and loyalty among the workers. Van Marken’s and Tolman’s approaches are compared, mirroring the encounter between social reform and business management within ‘the labour question’ of the era. The functional parallel introduced by them, stressing the non-technical nature of the social engineer’s professional qualifications, including the talents of the diplomat, is also contrasted with the original version of the usages revolving around the machine metaphor (still the conceptual core in latter-day pejorative applications of the terminology), which was popularized as a positively-charged rhetorical tool in a religious context in 1911.
