    Abstract [en]

    This is a study of how “birdwatching visions” are created through the relations between human and non-human actors in birdwatching, and what kind of representations of birds that are constituted within these visions. The aims have mainly been examined by participant observations of birdwatching in Sweden; participant observations of the work done by the NGO BirdLife Malta during the Spring hunting season of birds in Malta; and by interviewing birdwatchers in both contexts. The Actor-Network Theory serves as the theoretical perspective used to analyze how birdwatching visions are ordered and shaped in birdwatching, and how birds as “socio-material phenomenon” are constituted.

    The study shows how birdwatchers, through their relations to different devices, improve their abilities to determine species of birds, both by using equipment that extend their biological abilities, and equipment that offer a model of interpretation. The study also shows that the birdwatching visions are built upon a taxonomic and focused ways of thinking about birds, where the birds are given certain meanings depending on their occurrence in time and space and what kind of “species” they are identified as.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay will discuss the religious creation of the Frenchman Claude Vorilhon, currently known as his holiness Raël. Following an alleged encounter with an extraterrestrial in 1973 he founded the Raëlian religion. The main tenets of his religion are the notions that humankind is the creation of a group of extraterrestrial scientists; that bodily sensuality and sexuality is something positive; that immortality can be achieved through scientific means; and that if we prove ourselves worthy and rid our world of all destructive tendencies we will inherit the knowledge of our creators and become able to continue the creative cycle by creating life elsewhere in the cosmos. The present article will situate this religion within the context of ancient astronaut theories
