    Life in the foreign quarters of Canton: the case of the Swedish East India Company in the long eighteenth century2015In: International Journal of Maritime History, ISSN 0843-8714, E-ISSN 2052-7756, Vol. 27, no 4, p. 798-802Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This note describes a project analysing the everyday life in the foreign quarters of Canton, focusing on the Swedish East India Company employees 1730–1830. Canton was a well-known hub in the global trade during the long 18th century. However, it had strict restrictions on the foreign traders. Additionally, this port had a complex make-up in terms of ethnicity, class and religion, and I argue for the need to take its many groups into account. The Swedish company is a rare topic of study compared to other, larger companies, but it provides an unusual perspective: that of the small and non-colonial European company meeting a large and powerful Asian empire. The intercultural interaction in Canton took place in a very small space. This environment, in a restricted space, under Asian control, with many different groups, made for special relations among the foreign traders, and between the foreigners. This is particularly clear when focusing on the everyday life. I have studied the daily life Swedish employees in terms of how they acted as parts of groups, how they lived in this cramped space, their communication (amongst themselves and with others), their consumption and material practices, and finally which practices and strategies they used to establish trust.

    ‘In apparent disagreement with all law of nations in the world’: Negotiating neutrality for shipping and trade during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars2016In: International Journal of Maritime History, ISSN 0843-8714, E-ISSN 2052-7756, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 108-117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This Forum deals with maritime trade and shipping conducted by three neutral maritime states in the French Revolutionary Wars: Sweden, Denmark and the United States. The five contributions, based on specific cases of neutral shipping, illustrate the complementarity of neutral and belligerent trade and shipping, and so the significance of neutrality for the continuity of commerce in wartime. The introduction discusses eighteenth-century concepts of neutrality, as neutrals and belligerents understood it. Moreover, it provides a background narrative of the French Revolutionary Wars from the perspective of these three neutral states.

    Swedish merchant shipping in troubled times: The French Revolutionary Wars and Sweden’s neutrality 1793–18012016In: International Journal of Maritime History, ISSN 0843-8714, E-ISSN 2052-7756, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 147-164Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on Swedish merchant shipping in the first decade of the French Revolutionary Wars, when Sweden, due its neutrality, expanded its trade and shipping. The article attempts to balance two contradictory views of neutral shipping: that of high risks of seizure by belligerents, and that of wartime profits. Three different perspectives are employed to demonstrate the complexity of neutral shipping business. Registers of ship documents (fribrev and Algerian sea passes) show the relatively limited impact of political events on shipping activities. Legal documents in diplomatic correspondence illustrate practically how the cases of seized ships were handled on both political and court levels. The debate in print on the case of ship Maria (the convoy affair of 1798) indicates how the issue of neutral prizes became incorporated into the political discourse on international relations and law of nations.

    Political culture in St. Barthelemy 1800-18202015In: International Journal of Maritime History, ISSN 0843-8714, E-ISSN 2052-7756, Vol. 27, no 4, p. 803-805Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish colony of St. Barthelemy was a meeting place in the early nineteenth century for merchants and mariners from across the Atlantic World, seeking to take advantage of Swedish neutrality. Yet not just goods, capital and people transited through the free port of Gustavia, but also information, culture and political discourse. This flow influenced the political culture of the island and its inhabitants' relation to the Swedish colonial power and their new Swedish citizenship.
