    Regulatory traits: Cultural influences on cultural evolution2014In: Evolution, Complexity and Artificial Life / [ed] Stefano Cagnoni, Marco Mirolli, Marco Villani, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2014, 135-147 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We use the term regulatory traits to indicate traits that both regulate cultural transmission (e.g., from whom to learn) and are themselves culturally transmitted. In the first part of this contribution we study the dynamics of some of these traits through simple mathematical models. In particular, we consider the cultural evolution of traits that determine the propensity to copy others, the ability to influence others, the number of individuals from whom one may copy, and the number of individuals one tries to influence. We then show how to extend these simple models to address more complex human cultural phenomena, such as ingroup biases, the emergence of open or conservative societies, and of cyclical, fashion-like, increases and decreases of popularity of cultural traits. We finally discuss how the ubiquity of regulatory traits in cultural evolution impacts on the analogy between genetic and cultural evolution and therefore on the possibility of using models inspired by evolutionary biology to study human cultural dynamics.

    Abstract [sv]

    I år har den femte upplagan av Örebros konstbiennal OpenART gått av stapeln. Den är sedan 2013 den största konstbiennalen i Skandinavien och brukar visa verk av ett sjuttiotal konstnärer från olika delar av världen i stadsrummet och på museer. I år bidrog inte mindre än 13 kinesiska konstnärer och var därmed efter Sverige den mest representerade nationen. De två kinesiska utställningarna "Möten" och "Utan hämningar" fanns att beskåda 14juni–6 september och visade konstverk av Ai Weiwei, Chen Zhiguang, Cheng Dapeng, Chi Peng, Fu Zhongwang, Hu Weiyi, Li Binyuan, Liao Yijun, Song Dong, Wang Rui, Xu Bing, Yang Mushi och Yin Xiuzhen. Svensk-kinesiska föreningen var på plats och höll en visning i början av augusti. Här recenseras OpenARTs stora satsning på kinesisk samtidskonst.

    El uso del portugués en comunidades de religiones afrobrasileñas en el Uruguay: un estudio de caso2013In: Estudios afrolatinoamericanos: nuevos enfoques multidisciplinarios: Actas de las Terceras Jornadas del GEALA / [ed] María de Lourdes Ghidoli, Juan Francisco Martínez Peria, Buenos Aires: Ediciones del CCC Centro Cultural de la Cooperación Floreal Gorini , 2013, 587-601 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [es]

    Varios investigadores del campo de las ciencias sociales han señalado que la frontera de Rio Grande do Sul funciona como frente de expansión de las religiones afrobrasileñas para Uruguay y Argentina. Pi Hugarte, autor de una serie de publicaciones sobre las mencionadas religiones en el Uruguay, afirma que “la umbanda del Uruguay ya es un fenómeno cultural propio” (Pi Hugarte, 1992: 45). Eso coincide con la postura de Porzecanski (2008) que se refiere al “ritual afro-uruguayo de la Umbanda”, lo que se puede interpretar como la designación de una modalidad regional de esa religión. Según trabajos anteriores, en los rituales de dicha modalidad regional se emplea el portugués, pero no encontramos investigaciones de carácter lingüístico sobre la difusión de esa lengua como consecuencia de la expansión religiosa o sobre el uso del portugués brasileño y la convivencia de esa variedad con el español regional en el ámbito afroumbandista. Fue así que surgió la idea de realizar un trabajo de campo para observar la comunicación ritual y juntar datos lingüísticos en una comunidad montevideana que se dedica a las prácticas religiosas denominadas Batuque Quimbanda y Umbanda. Aportamos datos empíricos de un estudio de caso para describir el uso del portugués en contextos religiosos entre hablantes nativos de español. Completamos los datos recogidos consultando estudios anteriores para poder ampliar el universo observado y presentar ejemplos de comunidades que no tuvimos la oportunidad de visitar. Las preguntas discutidas son: ¿En qué situaciones comunicativas y por qué razones se utiliza el portugués en contextos religiosos y rituales en el Uruguay? ¿Cuáles son los componentes lingüísticos que se destacan y cuál es su relación con las variedades de español regional y con el lenguaje que se utiliza en comunidades de religión afro en el Brasil?

    ”Vårt” och ”deras” kulturarv? Svensk kulturarvspolitik­­ 1996­–2009–20162017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Svensk kulturarvspolitik arbetar utifrån visionen för kulturmiljöarbetet 2030 att ”alla, oavsett bakgrund, ska kunna göra anspråk på vårt gemensamma kulturarv”. Vad har föranlett till den här visionen och hur har det sett ut innan? Den här studien syftar till att undersöka hur och om retoriken i det talade språket och den skrivna texten uttrycker en exkluderande eller inkluderande syn på nationellt kulturarv kopplat till identitet.  Hur har synen på nationellt kulturarv sett ut och finns det en ”vi” och ”den Andre”– struktur i diskursen?

    Källmaterialet består av tre olika kultur- och kulturarvspropositioner under åren 1996, 2009 och 2016. Det kompletteras med utvalda intervjuer och offentliga tal från tre olika kulturministrar under samma år: Marita Ulvskog, Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth och Alice Bah Kuhnke. Metoden för studien har varit kritisk diskursanalys hämtad från Norman Fairclough. Resultatet av undersökningen diskuteras med begrepp hämtade från postkolonial teori, främst Edward Said och Homi K. Bhabha.

    Sökord: kulturarv, ”den Andre”, kulturarvspolitik, identitet, postkolonial, kritisk diskursanalys, kulturminister, nationalism

    Fashioning The Fashion Princess: Mediation - Transformation - Stardom2012In: Journal of Aesthetics and Culture, ISSN 2000-4214, E-ISSN 2000-4214, Vol. 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Is she looking as royal as can be? Dressing the part of a princess? Popular media texts, such as magazines completely devoted to celebrity matters, dealing with reports on who is wearing what at which occasion, provide the empirical outset for this textual study on the representations of the Scandinavian princesses of today: Mary (Denmark), Mette-Marit (Norway), Victoria (Sweden) and Madeleine (Sweden). In this article the princesses are, on a theoretical level, considered stars with their own images, images constructed in a similar way as film stars, with fashion and appearance as the focal point. In popular media texts, such as the Swedish woman’s magazine Svensk Damtidning, the styles of the princesses are scrutinised, compared and evaluated. These mappings are in this way further examined, and the topics surrounding the representations are surveyed. The themes selected for supplementary examination are personal style and Cinderella narrative, as they emerge as intimately interrelated with fashion. The epithet princess, in the sense ‘‘what a princess ought to look like’’, is given in terms of aestheticised appearance: body, fashion and personal style, is thus discussed and theorised throughout the article. Hence, the purpose of this article is to examine the roll of dress and the matter of appearance concerning the representations of the Scandinavian princesses, relating to the themes of style and consumption, as well as the transformation narratives. How are these royal styles constructed, on a designer level as well on a thematic level?

    Gestures of Seeing: Amateur photographers in the news2015In: Journalism - Theory, Practice & Criticism, ISSN 1464-8849, E-ISSN 1741-3001, Vol. 16, no 4, 451-469 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the amateur photographer as a common figure in contemporary news photographs, focusing on how the amateur’s gestures signify in journalism’s coverage of media events. Drawing on theories of photography as performance and ritual, I argue that the presence of the non-professional in the news photograph destabilizes journalistic discourse by challenging the role of the professional photographer and by redefining the event and its meanings. This is especially critical in coverage of catastrophic events, when the amateur’s gestures become a form of witnessing from a participant’s perspective, carrying both private and collective meanings for how the event will be understood in the future, and undermining the authority of journalism.

    The subgroup problem: When can binding voting on extractions from a common pool resource overcome the tragedy of the commons?2013In: Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, ISSN 0167-2681, E-ISSN 1879-1751, Vol. 91, 122-130 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using a common pool resource game protocol with voting we examine experimentally how cooperation varies with the level at which (binding) votes are aggregated. Our results are broadly in line with theoretical predictions. When players can vote on the behavior of the whole group or when leaders from each group can vote for the group as a whole, extraction levels from the common resource pool are close to the social optimum. When players extract resources individually, there is substantial overextraction. When players vote in subgroups, there is initially less overextraction but it increases over time. This suggests that in order for binding voting to overcome the tragedy of the commons in social dilemmas, it should ideally affect the group as a whole.

    Manga, Which Manga? Publication Formats, Genres, Users: Chapter 82016In: Japanese Civilization in the 21st Century / [ed] Andrew Targowski, Juri Abe, Hisanori Kato, New York: Nova Science Publishers, Inc., 2016, 121-134 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the beginning of the 21st century, manga has gained global renown to such an extent that its name is now surfacing in various discourses. What is more, politicians, journalists, and even academics show an inclination to generalize about manga. In light of both the practical political and scholarly consequences which such generalization has, this chapter calls for differentiation, focusing on manga as media. Methodologically informed by the fields of manga studies, art history, and media culture, the notion of “media” applied here conjoins the aspects of material support and technology, traditionally referred to by “medium,” with a consideration of the institutions, practices and interrelations underlying the production, distribution, and consumption of manga. Starting from historical notions mediated by the term manga, this chapter highlights how manga texts are conventionally positioned by format and site of publication, gendered and thematic genres, associated target groups and possible usages. Having proposed a tripartite classification, this chapter finally identifies a specific kind of manga that is in demand by fans on a global scale, a kind which not only matches the interactivity of the age of the internet, but historically also rests on a remarkable internal receptivity to non-Japanese comics in Japan.

    Abstract [en]

    How do new media affect the question of social memory? Social memory is usually described as enacted through ritual, language, art, architecture, and institutions ? phenomena whose persistence over time and capacity for a shared storage of the past was set in contrast to fleeting individual memory. But the question of how social memory should be understood in an age of digital computing, instant updating, and interconnection in real time, is very much up in the air. The essays in this collection discuss the new technologies of memory from a variety of perspectives that explicitly investigate their impact on the very concept of the social.

    The shifting role of the Brazilian Military since 1985: A study of changes in the civil-military relations2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis will investigate the development of civil-military relations in Brazil since the democratization in 1985. The two most important previous studies, by Alfred Stepan and Wendy Hunter, will be presented and discussed. They where published in 1988 and 1997, respectively. There is therefore a need for a study that includes the development during the long period since these two books were published. The focus will be on three indicators, civilianization of government, how the role of the military has been defined, and military expenditures. The conclusions are that there are contradicting tendencies regarding the development of the civil-military relations, and that the strengthening of civilian institutions is paramount in order to consolidate democracy in Brazil.

    Museums and the Making of Textile Histories: Past, Present, and Future2016In: Perspective: actualite en l'histoire de l'art, ISSN 2269-7721, no 1, 43-60 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Nombre de musées différents collectionnent et préservent les textiles, et collectent les données les concernant. Ils les interprètent également par le biais d’expositions temporaires ou semi permanentes, de publications et d’interventions sur des sites web. Ces interprétations se présentent isolément, ou sont parfois inscrites dans un cadre plus large qui englobe l’histoire de l’art et du design, la science et la technologie, ou encore l’histoire sociale et l’anthropologie, l’histoire locale et les cultures du monde (types de textiles et approches utilisées dans les grandes capitales de la mode – Londres, Paris, Milan, New York – possédant une longue tradition de production et de consommation textile, ou dans des villes manufacturières telles que Krefeld, Lyon ou Manchester, par exemple).

    Malgré tout, les événements organisés autour des textiles attirent rarement l’attention du grand public ou les éloges de la critique – hormis peut-être certaines expositions novatrices telles que celles organisées par Jean-Paul Leclercq (« Jouer la lumière », Paris, Les Arts décoratifs, Musée de la Mode et du textile, 2001), Thomas P. Campbell, (« Tapestry in the Renaissance: Art and Magnificence, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2002), Amelia Peck et al. (« Interwoven Globe : The Worldwide Textile Trade, 1500-1800 », New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2013-2014), ou John Styles (« Threads of Feeling », Londres, The Foundling Hospital, 2010-2011/Colonial Williamsburg, 2014). Cette discussion vise à tirer parti des différentes expériences culturelles des participants et des diverses formations disciplinaires qu’ils incarnent :

    - Encourager le débat sur le rôle joué par les musées en matière de fabrication et de représentation de l’histoire des textiles. Les musées ne sont pas simplement dépositaires d’objets textiles : ils écrivent aussi leur histoire, qu’elle soit universitaire ou grand public, par le biais d’expositions et de publications. Comment ce travail s’articule-t-il avec la recherche universitaire et le partage des connaissances ? Tient-il compte des nouveaux apports de la recherche et alimente-t-il celle-ci ? Comment faire évoluer à l’avenir les échanges entre musées et universités dans différentes régions et cultures du monde ?

    - Déterminer quels musées font preuve d’innovation (à l’échelle locale, régionale, nationale et internationale). En quoi consistent ces innovations, et peuvent-elle contribuer à déterminer de futures orientations, notamment en matière de collection et d’interprétation ? Par interprétation, il faut entendre ici tout type d’explication sous forme numérique ou analogique fournie pour contextualiser les œuvres exposées.

    - Il est difficile, désormais, d’affirmer que seuls les historiens de l’art sont à même de proposer une étude dynamique des objets datant de la période post 1500, et l’intérêt quasi exclusif porté jusqu’ici aux textiles attachés à la tradition bien établie de la collection d’amateur d’art (essentiellement les tentures et tapisseries répondant à des commandes de prestige) est aujourd’hui remis en question par l’adoption d’approches plus globales par les historiens et les spécialistes de l’histoire du design et de la culture matérielle.

    Climate Crimes: Climate change and deforestation: a case-study of state-corporate crime in Peru2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decades, climate change studies have been focusing more intensely on its anthopocenic essence, as the consequence of production and consumption patterns that require the intensive exploitation of the environment. In line with this school of thought, and new generations of studies on environmental crime, this work aims to present the environmentally and climate-related issues arising from land degradation in the Peruvian Amazon; focusing on those casual mechanisms developed from the collusion between Peruvian-economic policies and new private actors such as transnational corporations (TNCs). Relying on the assumption that: the processes moving the issue of climate change overcome the global space, and can be observed from regional, national or local point of view; this work's purpose is to analyze how a single country as Peru, currently considered of low ecological footprint, could, by means of the definition of national laws (environmentally and economic-related) burden climate change. The analysis focuses on a single case-study identified with the territory within the Northern Ucayali and Southern Loreto regions in Peru, and builds on the theory of state-corporate crime developed in the 1990s by Ronald C. Kramer and Raymond J. Michalowski to define the role of state-corporate relationships in the production of social harms. To show how this relationship is today shaping the globally spread issue of climate change, the analysis of the palm oil industry in Ucayali is presented as main example of a broader phenomenon of transgression and partnership between private and public spheres in Peru. In this optic, the purpose is to give further contributions to the studies of climate change as state-corporate crime, focusing on the analysis of those territory, as the Amazon, whose preservation has been identified as mayor tool against global warming and which is instead harmed by the relation between private and governments interests.

    Skådespelare, kostymer och kontrakt: en bortglömde del av teater- och kostymhistorien2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study - Actors, costumes and agreements - is to highlight an almost forgotten part of the history of theatre costume and theatre history.  During at least two hundred years actors in Sweden were expected to contribute to the performance by their costumes. The study is divided into three parts: agreements, memoirs and conversation. Nine agreements between theatres and actors from 1778 to 1971 will be analyzed with focus on costumes. What do they express about the period, fashion and repertoire, audience? The theatres demand of the actors could be very detailed and shifting. Three memoire books and conversation with seven actors represent the actors view. Questions arise about actors poor economy, theatre culture and gender. The study will also show periods with connection between fashion and theatre costume.

    A popular misapplication of evolutionary modeling to the study of human cooperation2017In: Evolution and human behavior, ISSN 1090-5138, E-ISSN 1879-0607, Vol. 38, no 3, 421-427 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To examine the evolutionary basis of a behavior, an established approach (known as the phenotypic gambit) is to assume that the behavior is controlled by a single allele, the fitness effects of which are derived from a consideration of how the behavior interacts, via life-history, with other ecological factors. Here we contrast successful applications of this approach with several examples of an influential and superficially similar line of research on the evolutionary basis of human cooperation. A key difference is identified: in the latter line of research the focal behavior, cooperation, is abstractly defined in terms of immediate fitness costs and benefits. Selection is then assumed to act on strategies in an iterated social context for which fitness effects can be derived by aggregation of the abstractly defined immediate fitness effects over a lifetime. This approach creates a closed theoretical loop, rendering models incapable of making predictions or providing insight into the origin of human cooperation. We conclude with a discussion of how evolutionary approaches might be appropriately used in the study of human social behavior.

    Fashion or dress? Pedagogical issues in fashion theory2014In: Cuadernos del Centro de Estudios de Diseño y Comunicación, ISSN 1668-0227, Vol. 14, no 48, 113-127 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I plan to reflect on the pedagogical challenges I’ve faced in my first semester of teaching fashion studies material at Parsons, speaking specifically to the challenges I’ve overcome in leading my junior seminar, Supermodel: Beauty, Fashion, and Performance, and in devising a new undergraduate fashion theory elective. In doing so, I will provide an overview of Fashion Studies as a newly-emerging academic field and outline the reflections that other scholars have published thus far.

    While the aforementioned will serve as a broad foundation for my paper, my primary focus will be on my own experience. In contributing my perspective as a teacher of undergraduate MFA students at Parsons to this conversation, I will pose the following questions: What challenges do my students face in working within a discipline and in a manner that is so different from their own practice? What is the most effective way to introduce students to fashion theory and criticism? What issues are students most drawn to? And finally, how might classes such as mine influence students in reflecting on their own practice as designers? The purpose of this article will thusly be to foster a dialogue between Fashion Studies scholars as well as with other academics who work and research in interdisciplinary fields.

    Performing Vintage: The Cultivation and Dissemination of Vintage Sensibilities at the Brooklyn Flea2014In: Canadian Review of American Studies, ISSN 0007-7720, E-ISSN 1710-114X, Vol. 44, no 2, 214-239 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Vintageas a fashion term is difficult to pin down. While some scholars argue that vintage only applies to fashion items that are at least twenty years old, others argue that it is also an easily manufactured and commodifiable sensibility. This article offers a revised definition of vintage as performance and bridges the fields of fashion studies, cultural studies, and ethnography. Using the Brooklyn Flea in Brooklyn, New York, as my primary research site, I use interviews and in-depth ethnographic observation to provide a new framework through which we can come to understand the Brooklyn vintage phenomenon and observe an example of aesthetic renewal in a vibrant consumption landscape. I suggest that, through this case study and through the lens of performance, we can come to understand vintage as produced in interactions between cultural actors (principally the consumers and purveyors of vintage objects) and disseminated by street-style photographers, who spread images of the flea online to the virtual viewing public.

    You Are What You Wear: How Plus-Size Fashion Figures in Fat Identity Formation2014In: Fashion Theory: The Journal of Dress, Body and Culture, ISSN 1362-704X, E-ISSN 1751-7419, Vol. 18, no 1, 45-71 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the overlooked market of plus-size fashion and explores the ways in which the fashion industry neglects and marginalizes fat consumers. Faced with limited options in garments colloquially known as “plus-size” or “outsize” that are typically relegated to dark corners of clothing stores and are excluded from the pages of high fashion periodicals, the plus-size consumer lacks options in fashioning her self-identity. Under these circumstances, the role the fashion industry has played in further entrenching fat stigma in the collective consciousness and in abetting the processes of fat identity formation amongst plus-size consumers merits closer examination. Drawing upon the collected sartorial biographies of three self-identifying plus-size women, this article considers the ways in which fat identities are formed through the intimate practices of self-fashioning and via social channels such as shopping and fashion blogging, thereby bridging the fields of fat studies and fashion studies. It also takes into account issues of performativity and dress as a situated bodily practice. Through these case studies, the role the fashion industry plays in the processes of fat identity formation is brought to the fore, as are the complicated, creative, and sometimes subversive means through which fat women engage with plus-size fashion.

    Becoming Image: Perspectives on Digital Culture, Fashion and Technofeminism2015Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Departing from a technofeminist perspective, Becoming Image, places the digital image in a broader context of modern and postmodern technological discourses and fashion. In four articles, the compilation dissertation expands a contemporary and imagistic tech discourse by questioning the ideology of ”masculinity”―specifically the idea of it as a historically male domain. Through interviews, discourse analysis and feminist critique, as well as an interdisciplinary focus on digital media, the project investigates how everyday image practices open up for new embodied experiences. Focusing on women and social media, the articles examines the way material and immaterial aspects of images overlap in everyday life. Rather than artistic intention, emotions and basic human interaction often lie at heart of becoming image. Fashion is, however, highly present in this critical transformation. Not only as collaborative projects emerge out of combining new technologies and dress―such as using your smartphone to elevate your clothing―but also how fashion is a technology itself. Fashion highlights the body as medium, but fashion is also always (mostly) image. 

    Previous research around the digital image and its meaning has often stressed the banality of everyday image practices as taking selfies. However, these debates represent deeper cultural values and norms, which the dissertation reaches beyond. As women, and also queer and trans-people increasingly innovate and interfere with normative technological usage, it becomes evident that such groups have been excluded from communities organized around technological power and skill. As with language, technology and digital imagery are not neutral media. Women have hence been excluded―and been forced to use instruments and apps seemingly made for strict masculine purposes. Arguably, image practices such as selfies or image micro-blogging encourage women to “write” themselves out of a world they have not constructed themselves. Thus, Becoming Image simultaneously illuminates the structural and fundamental levels of technology and gender―while also suggesting new methodological and theoretical ways of studying and approaching digital media.

    Temporal discounting leads to social stratification2012In: The Journal of mathematical sociology, ISSN 0022-250X, E-ISSN 1545-5874, Vol. 36, no 4, 245-255 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social stratification is present in all modern societies. Do income differences simply reflect inherited differences in individual abilities and resources? If not, why does not everyone choose strategies that lead to high income? This article shows that the psychological phenomenon known as temporal discounting will lead to differences in educational attainment and social stratification in any society where the demand for workers with a higher level of education is higher than for those with a lower level. The model is used to predict income differences between people with and without college education in seven developed countries, based only on official statistics of the cost and length of college education. The model explains 93% of the variance, strongly suggesting that temporal discounting is a major factor behind income differences.
