    Searching for recognition: The professional development of psychodynamic psychotherapists during training and the first few years after it2011In: Psychotherapy Research, ISSN 1050-3307, E-ISSN 1468-4381, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 141-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to investigate the development of psychotherapists' professional self during training and the first few years after it. Constant comparison analysis was conducted on interviews with former students (N = 18) at a training institute for psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The resulting core category osearching for recognitiono indicated that participants' ambition during the studied time period was to reach high status by becoming psychotherapists. During training, this was expressed by the category oattachment to preformed professional self,o meaning that students wanted their preconceptions about therapy to be acknowledged by teachers. After training, participants experienced achieved recognition and, as a result, a sense of freedom to use their own judgment.

    Drömmen om stormakten: Erik Dahlberghs Sverige2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ingen har betytt så mycket för bilden av den svenska stormakten, dess städer och slott, som Erik Dahlbergh, Han påbörjade 1661 det svindlande projektet att avbilda sevärdheter från alla delar av Sverige. Den ambitiösa satsningen resulterade i verket Suecia antiqua et hodierna, "Det forna och nuvarande Sverige", med en stor mängd planscher som återutgivits under århundraden. Länge ansågs verket framställa Sverige som mer storslaget än det faktiskt var. Men hur är det egentligen med överdrifterna? Och vilka är människorna som rör sig i slottsmiljöerna? Vad kan vi från bilderna utläsa om livet i den svenska stormakten? Konsthistorikerna Börje Magnusson och historikern Jonas Nordin går på en fascinerande upptäcktsfärd i 1600-talets Sverige.

    Certamen equestre: Karl XI:s karusell inför samtid och eftervärld2005Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Till minne av Karl XI:s trontillträde 1672 utgavs planschverket Certamen equestre ett unikt projekt i svensk bokproduktion och ett arbete som bättre än något annat belyser barockens ceremoniel och hovfester. Sviten om sextiotvå kopparstick utges nu i sin helhet med fyllig och rikt illustrerad kommentar i en exklusiv faksimilutgåva. Initiativtagare var hovmålaren David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl och avsikten var att visa fram det svenska stormaktsväldets högtsträvande ambitioner. Verket förmedlar en detaljerad dokumentation Karl XI:s karusell och dess deltagare där den skimrande prakten och storslagna iscensättningen framträder med enastående grafisk skärpa. Historikern Jonas Nordin belyser ingående den europeiska bakgrunden och förklarar ceremonielets innebörd samt redogör för verkets utgivningshistoria. Certamen equestre kom att bli ensamt i sitt slag i Sverige och dess betydelse i samtiden var stor. För eftervärlden utgör det en unik källa till kunskap om den svenska stormakten och dess riter.

    Ett fattigt men fritt folk: nationell och politisk självbild i Sverige från sen stormaktstid till slutet av frihetstiden2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with questions about national identity and national consciousness in Sweden from the middle of the 17th to the second half of the 18th century. Two embracing hypotheses have guided the inquiry. The first proposes that a clearly distinguishable national sentiment existed in Sweden already by the middle of the 17th century. The second proposes that the rulers tried to encourage and distribute this national consciousness to the lower echelons of society in order to obtain a less arbitrary rule over the subjects. The core of the investigation consists of five thematically and chronologically supplementing studies (chapters 2–6) that seeks to confirm these hypotheses.

    Chapter 1 defines the problem and outlines methodological and theoretical themes. Chapter 2 examines the composition of the Swedish empire during the Age of Greatness, the Crown's integration policy towards its foreign provinces, as well as the subjects' personal bonds to the Crown before the birth of modern citizenship. Chapter 3 investigates the national rethoric of Swedish propaganda during the Great Nordic War. Chapter 4 is mainly concentrated on the 18th century and investigates what content was given to the Swedish national character in a cultural and scholarly context. Chapter 5 examines the same topics with regard to the Finns as subjects of the Swedish realm. This chapter also surveys official and semi-official attitudes towards the 'Lapps' (Samis). Chapter 6 examines the political use of concepts such as patriotism and love of the Fatherland, first in a scholarly and theoretical context, and secondly in the vivid parliamental debates about civil rights that concluded the Age of Liberty. The last chapter summarizes the case studies and interprets the results in relation to dominant theoretical conceptions regarding nationalism. In this context it is argued that the national sentiments and the political use that was made of them during the period under investigation only differed in a quantitative, though not in a qualitative way from nationalist ideologies of the 19th century.

    Frihetstidens monarki: konungamakt och offentlighet i 1700-talets Sverige2009Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad hade monarkin för funktion när monarken inte hade någon? Efter Karl XII:s död upphävdes enväldet och Sveriges konung reducerades till närmast en symbolgestalt. Monarkin fortsatte dock att vara en oumbärlig del av statsskicket. I denna bok utreds konungens roll i frihetstidens politik, här berättas vilken bild av regenten som förmedlades genom tidens informationskanaler och här klargörs vilka tankar vanliga undersåtar hyste om monarken.Med hjälp av ett varierande källmaterial och tidigare opublicerade bilder beskrivs en tid då konungarnas inflytande drastiskt minskades.

    Namnstämpeln har gått till eftervärlden som den yttersta symbolen för konungens maktlöshet, men det hör till frihetstidens många paradoxer att den i själva verket togs till för att rädda monarkin. Samtidigt som monarkins reella makt kringskars ökade dess symboliska betydelse och offentliga genomslag. Undersåtarna fick veta mer om regenternas offentliga och privata liv än någonsin tidigare och epoken såg några av de mest påkostade kungliga ceremonierna i Sveriges historia.

    Frihetstidens radikalism2003In: Riksdag, kaffehus och predikstol: Frihetstidens politiska kultur 1766–1772, Atlantis, Stockholm , 2003, p. 55–72, 357–359-Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    This study investigates the prior conditions for and content of political radicalism at the end of the Swedish Age of Liberty (1719–1772). In the first part of the article it is argued that, over the course of time, shifts in the balance of power between the different organs of government and in the interpretation of constitutional documents shaped a parliamentary and republican practice that provided what at the time were unique opportunities for political reforms. The radicalism, that became particularly evident in the 1760s was neither homogenous nor did it achieve hegemony, but its social foundation and dissemination have never been properly investigated. Nevertheless, it seems clear that it gained ever growing support among the common estates, cutting across former boundaries between the political parties.

    In the second part of the article, an analytical tool for political and social classification is proposed in which five issues are regarded as central to the radicals. They maintained: (1) that legislative and executive power was restrained by the will of the People; (2) that all citizens formed part of the legislative body and should be able to elect their representatives on equal terms; (3) that merit, not descent, should have precedence in all official appointments; (4) that social privileges should be abolished and that all citizens should have equal standing before the law; and (5) that the state should maintain law and order but otherwise intervene as little as possible in people’s lives. In a broader analysis, these five criteria should be handled in an ideal-typical manner. They seem to have formed the core of the radical agenda, although different solutions were put forward by different politicians on each and every issue.

    The third part of this essay briefly discusses the possible uniqueness of the Swedish experience. Besides political developments, there were also conceptual and social factors behind the turn to radicalism. These were part of a general European trend, however, as were many of the specific ideas advanced. But the Swedish parliamentary system, it is argued, in which the three common estates could outvote the nobility, provided unique opportunities to realize the radical agenda. The step-by-step abolition of aristocratic precedence and the propagation of civil and human rights was still in progress when king Gustav III staged his coup d’état in 1772 and managed to restore royal power. The nobility, which had generally been among the king’s most ardent opponents during the Age of Liberty, now supported the monarch in order to salvage their privileges. Within a couple of decades, however, under the sheer force of social and political upheaval, the king had to reintroduce many of the progressive reforms he had abolished at the beginning of his reign.

    Historisk tidskrift i nutid och framtid: Några reflektioner över läsarsynpunkter, bibliometri och Open Access2008In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 128, no 4, p. 601-620Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    In this article the author recounts his experiences as editor of Historisk tidskrift. The starting point is a poll of the journal’s readers presented at the triannual meeting of the Swedish Historical Association in Lund in April 2008. Readers told that they read Historisk tidskrift primarily in order to be up to date on Swedish historical research. The journal reflects fairly well the research interests of Swedish historians, although improvements can be made in this respect. Concerns for the need to internationalise research and to improve one’s qualifications increasingly govern how Swedish historians publish. This affects the attitude to Historisk tidskrift, which is regarded as too provincial. These and other issues are discussed by the author.

    The second part of the article discusses two partly intertwined issues of significance to the journal’s future: Bibliometrics and Open Access. The author is sceptical about bibliometric analyses and points to methodological difficulties in applying such measures to the humanities. Nevertheless, Historisk tidskrift will have to take bibliometrics into account. The author is favourably disposed towards Open Access. However, several problems need to be solved before Historisk tidskrift can become an Open Access journal. If the journal looses its subscribers, alternative sources of funds has to be found to pay for editorial work. Before this is done, the present form of publication has to be retained.

    Logården vid Stockholms slott under 1700-talet2010In: Konsthistorisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0023-3609, E-ISSN 1651-2294, Vol. 79, no 1, p. 33-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When the old royal castle of Stockholm burnt to the ground in 1697 the archtitect Nicodemus Tessin Jr. could present ground plans for a new palace within only a few months. In them he also planned for a small pleasure garden, Logården. This project, which has never been fully analysed, was a rare example of Tessin planning a garden for an urban environment and it is also interesting since it concerns his major work, the Royal Palace in Stockholm. This article analyses the project with respect to changes to the plan, as well as to patterns copied by and inspiring Tessin, known for his eclectic methods. The investigation demonstrates how his plans were developed into higher confidence and maturity. Originally Logården was planned as a secluded garden but by means of slight transformations Tessin gradually made it more repsentative and connected it to the environing cityscape. Tessin’s plans for Logården were never executed. The second part of the article treats the development of the site in the eighteenth century. The Ropyal Palace was not ready for occupation until 1754 and the construction works continued long after that. Because of the long building time, during which a delicate garden had low priority, a garden parterre was not laid out until 1792. The invention was made by Carl Fredrik Adelcrantz and much simplified compared to Tessin’s plans. Within a decade Logården was rearranged in an English style, and the irregularity was kept until the 1930s, when Ivar Tengbom authored the garden that stands to the present day.

    Peter Forsskål 1732-1763: En Linnélärjunge i kamp för civila rättigheter2013In: Svenska Linnésällskapets årsskrift, ISSN 0375-2038, p. 39-52Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Two hundred and fifty years have passed since Peter Forsskål, one of Carl Linnæus’s mostpromising disciples, perished during a scientific expedition to Yemen. Forsskål was onlythirty-one when he died, but he had already proven his ability in many fields. Today he is above all remembered for his appeal for free speech and the freedom of print. In 1759 Forsskål published a pamphlet, Thoughts on Civil Liberty, containing twenty condensed paragraphs in which he pleaded for strengthened civil rights in Sweden. He argued forfreedom of trade, secured rights of possession, land reforms, vocational schools, public appointments by competence, and proper limits for the authorities’ exercise of power. The most important means to achieve all this, Forsskål believed, was a “limited Government and unlimited freedom of the written word.

    The period between 1719 and 1772 is known as the Age of Liberty in Swedish history. It was characterized by a republican polity in which the king’s powers were severely circumscribed. With his pamphlet Forsskål inevitably drew attention to the prevailing gap between official rhetoric and political practice. The King’s Chancellery (Kanslikollegium) interrogated Forsskål and tried to make him renounce his theses, but he stubbornly refused to admit that there could be anything wrong in defending “Swedish Liberty,” which had already become an official watchword of the age. Forsskål’s interrogators were unable to counter his arguments and reluctantly had to let him go. His pamphlet was confiscated and banned, but the authorities only managed to track down seventy nine copies out of a printrun of five hundred. The Faculty of Uppsala University was ordered to give him a serious warning for his lack of precaution, though no personal harm ever came to him. Forsskål would most probably have continued his battle with the authorities had it not been for hisfateful Arabian expedition.

    Forsskål was part of a wider movement, and the freedom of print became one of the major questions during the Diets of the 1760s. Other political radicals continued to challenge censorship until the first Freedom of Print Act was finally issued in 1766. The enactment gave rise to a flood of political pamphlets and an intensified public discussion with a radical stance. This political radicalization – which all but led to the dissolution of noble privileges, among other things – came to a sudden stop in 1772, when King Gustav III carried out a coup-d’état, restored royal powers, and annulled all the constitutional laws of the preceding century. As a response to the uncertainty regarding print restrictions, Gustav issued a new and “improved” Freedom of Print Act in 1774. Whereas the old act had permitted everything that was not expressly forbidden to be printed, the new act made it possible to prosecute authors and printers for having published material that was not expressly allowed. He did not reintroduce precensorship, but by reversing the essence of the print act he managed to put an end to political debate. The struggle for freedom of expression still had a long way to go.
