    Att fostra journalister: Journalistutbildningens formering i Sverige 1944-19702011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis analyses the interaction between various interests in Swedish society when the existing apprenticeship system for the journalism profession was to be replaced by a formal journalism education programme. The press organisations had a difficult time agreeing on a programme, and the issue was discussed for over 50 years. The profession was seen as a talent, an aptitude that some people had, and there was opposition to formal education. The first part analyses discussions about journalism education in a post-war context, both in Sweden and internationally. Part two considers extensive investigatory processes in Sweden, in which the structure of journalism programmes was arrived at through negotiations. The third part studies the development of and discussions about the newly founded national journalism schools.

     The thesis demonstrates that journalism education was often presented as a solution to other perceived problems than the press needing more professionally trained labour. Journalism education was proposed as a solution to problems associated with commercialisation, sensational journalism, politicised journalism and war propaganda. The question of influencing the shaping of opinion both in Sweden and internationally was linked to journalism education to the extent that education was seen as a method of affecting the way the “free” press worked. For the same reason, the education of journalists was sometimes considered dangerous, that journalism students were streamlined in a separate education programme based on homogeneous values, which could be a threat to the freedom of expression.

    Using Bourdieu, the difficult relationship between the journalistic field and the academic field on education is interpreted as a struggle between two forms of capital over which kind of knowledge is to be valued. On a higher level, the struggle between academe and the press was formulated as a battle of symbolic royalty over what values were to be regarded as true in public discourse.

    Bostadskooperativ eller blockad?: En komparativ studie av Stockholms Hyresgästförening och Hyresgästernas Centralförsamling i Göteborg 1923–19392015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the formative years of the Swedish tenants´ associations in Gothenburg and Stockholm and the strategies used by these organizations to alter the housing market, both on a local and on a national level. It is both a transfer analysis, examining how strategies from the labor market came to be applied to the rental market and a comparative study, comparing tenants´ associations in two Swedish cities. Hyresgästernas Centralförsamling (HCF) in Gothenburg had a more conflict-oriented approach toward both individual and collectively organized landlords. The organizational structure of HCF was similar to that of a trade union federation. This differed from Stockholms Hyresgästförening (SHG). Resembling more a political association than a militant union, SHG adopted strategies more focused on gaining legislative protection for tenants and increasing the supply of available housing. This was partly achieved through the co-operative housing society Hyresgästernas Sparkasse- och Byggnadsförening (HSB). This thesis argues that the common denominator for all these strategies was to reduce the internal competition between tenants and thus strengthening them as a collective force on the rental market. The main conclusion of the thesis is that the tenants´ associations cannot be easily categorized by standard organizational models. Shaped by local, organizational and ideological factors the tenants´ associations were hybrid organizations resembling both trade unions, cooperative societies

    Ett bidrag till heterosexualitetens historia: Kön, sexualitet och njutningsnormer i sexhandböcker 1800 - 19202005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines and analyses Swedish sex manuals written for the most part by doctors between 1800 and 1920. The study focuses on constructions of gender, sexuality and norms for pleasure, and investigates how these processes change over time. A fundamental question raised in the study concerns the descriptions of sexual union between the binary opposed genders and how these descriptions are subsequently connected to medical and scientific ideas during the relevant period. By specifying and drawing attention to these issues, the study makes a contribution to the history of heterosexuality. Special attention is given to sex manuals written by women and published at the turn of the century in 1900.

    The construction of norms in the sex manuals becomes evident, partly through descriptions of desirable, moderate, sexual behaviour with reference to health, reason, cultural progress and the maximisation of sexual pleasure, and partly through the presentation of deterrents and counter images referring to abnormal, primitive and degenerate genders and sexualities. The construction of a European, middle class gender and sexuality ideal is made apparent in that the norms are also linked to the working class, domestic minorities and other “races”. I call the positive normatisation of heterosexual intercourse an “ideology of pleasure”.

    According to descriptions in the sex manuals, the boundaries between the opposed genders are often fluid. Therefore the heterosexual union of opposed genders with binary defined sexualities becomes an unstable construction requiring constant stabilisation. During the second half of the 19th Century, when the criterion of reproduction diminished as the defining feature for reciprocal and loving sexual pleasure, the norm for heterosexual pleasure became stabilised by virtue of new arguments. These included the use of strong deterrents against same-gendered sexual activities or masturbation.

    By juxtaposing the connections between deterrents and taboos against deviant genders and sexualities with descriptions of the division and heterosexual union of the two genders, this investigation makes an empirical contribution to the feminist analysis of the intersection between gender, class and ethnicity in the construction of a heterosexual norm.

    Historia och det förflutnas spegel: Pragmatiska perspektiv på det senaste halvseklets historieteoretiska debatt2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis studies debates on historical theory in Sweden ́s two main historical journals, Historisk tidskrift and Scandia, during the last fifty years. The study investigates discussions of epistemological questions, the purposes of historical writing, and the influence of postmodernism. The theoretical approach and methodology used is inspired by the American pragmatist philosopher Richard Rorty. In a concluding chapter Rorty’s writings are used to confront the study’s results. The purpose of this is to highlight certain problems from the investigation. It is argued that the vocabulary used by the Swedish historians is an effect of the correspondence theory of truth, and that a pragmatic approach to the study of history could help history break free from that unfortunate vocabulary.

    Jag är någon annan: Psykiatrikerna Karl Jaspers och Viktor Emil von Gebsattels filosofiska perspektiv på depersonalisation2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to investigate psychiatrists and philosophers Viktor Emil von Gebsattel's and Karl Jasper's views on a phenomenon they describe as depersonalization. The paper analyzes their beliefs about the phenomenon, with particular focus on the descriptions in the intersection of philosophy and psychiatry. Many modern thinkers are considering depersonalization as a syndrome in need of both a psychiatrist and a philosopher to be understood. Depersonalization is defined by Jaspers and Gebsattels as phenomenon where the body and the ego is perceived as strange, automatic, exogenous and observed from the outside in a compulsive way. Jaspers and Gebsattel views are opposed to a biologistic and psychologizing understandinging of mental suffering which was common in their time. The thinkers are driven by the ambition of avoiding the reification of the ego and mental suffering. In the same time they want to define and determine the dissolved and evasive ego as pathological. The paper examines if, and how, they manage to solve this conflict.

    Kvinnokamp: Synen på underordning och motstånd i den nya kvinnorörelsen2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis analyses ideological positions in the new women’s movement during the 1970s. Three key concepts are central in the study: oppression, struggle and liberation. Questions in focus are: what were the conceptions of power relations between men and women in the movement? Which mechanisms were seen to uphold the oppression of women? Which strategies were suggested to fight the oppression? How was the oppression thought to be ended?

    Influenced by sociologists Ron Eyerman and Andrew Jamison this thesis analyzes the new women’s movement as a collective learning process. Knowledge was considered to be crucial in the fight for women’s liberation and the theoretical interest in understanding why and how women were oppressed was strong. The production of ideology that took place within the new women’s movement can therefore be regarded and described in terms of knowledge.

    Three dominant ideological positions are analysed: the socialist feminist project, the women’s culture project and the lesbian feminist projects. The knowledge produced within these three projects highlight different aspects of the oppression of women and come up with different answers on how to fight it.

    The socialist feminist project deals with the relationship between gender and class. Questions concerning the relation between the oppression of women and capitalism as well as the relation between women’s struggle and class struggle are central. The women’s culture project evolved in the latter half of the 1970s and concerned questions on the male norm. It also contained strong elements of identity politics. The lesbian feminist project directed attention to the relationship between heterosexuality and oppression as well as between lesbianism and women’s liberation.

    Medborgarmönstringen inom högern 1915–1936: En begreppshistorisk och diskursorienterad undersökning av medborgarbegreppets utbredning, mening och funktion inom Allmänna valmansförbundet2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the 1920s and 1930s, the Swedish right-wing party Allmänna valmansförbundet (AVF) made citizen into a key concept within their political vocabulary and practice. This thesis examines the distribution, meaning and function of the concept of citizen within the AVF between 1915 and 1936. By using theoretical and methodological perspectives from both the English (Skinner) and German (Koselleck) side of conceptual history vis-à-vis Begriffsgeschischte, this study illuminates how a discursive framework took place within the AVF and expanded throughout the organisation. The constitutional reforms 1918/1921 and the organisational strength from opposite parties, stressed the importance for the AVF to assemble the citizens around conservative value laden concepts: responsibility, ansvar, and public participation, offentlighet. This new situation in political and social life, pushed the AVF towards a reorganisation. The aim was to educate the masses, women and youth into conservative citizens. Citizen became the sole tool in (i) upholding the traditional heritage between folk–state, and (ii) enabling the AVF citizen discourse to spread throughout the society. This study shows the multiple meaning and functions of the citizen concept within the AVF.  It provides a new understanding of how collective concepts became an important part of the struggle for power during the democratization process in Swedish political history and must in that respect be seen as an antithesis to the collective concepts of the Social Democratic Party during this period.

    No alternatives: The end of ideology in the 1950s and the post-political world of the 1990s2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1950s, scholars in Europe and the United States announced the end of political ideology in the West. With the rise of affluent welfare states, they argued, ideological movements which sought to overthrow prevailing liberal democracy would disappear. While these arguments were questioned in the 1960s, similar ideas were presented after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Scholars now claimed that the end of the Cold War meant the end of mankind’s “ideological development,” that globalization would undermine the left/right distinction and that politics would be shaped by cultural affiliations rather than ideological alignments.

    The purpose of No alternatives is to compare the end of ideology discussion of the 1950s with some of the post-Cold War theories launched at the time of, or in the years following, the fall of the Berlin Wall. Juxtaposing monographs, essays and papers between 1950 and 2000, the dissertation focuses on three aspects of these theories. First, it analyzes their concepts of history, demonstrating that they tended to portray the existing society as an order which had resolved the conflicts and antagonisms of earlier history. Second, the investigation scrutinizes the processes of post-politicization at work in these theories, showing how they sought to transcend, contain or externalize social conflict, and at times dismiss politics altogether. Third, it demonstrates how the theories can be understood as legitimizing or mobilizing narratives which aimed to defend Western liberal democracy and to rally its citizens against internal threats and external enemies. As the title of the dissertation implies, the end of ideology discussion of the 1950s and the post-Cold War theories of the 1990s sought to highlight the historical or political impossibility of any alternatives to the present society.

    Segrarnas historia: Makten, historien och friheten studerade genom exemplet Herbert Tingsten 1939-532009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this dissertation, The History of the Victors, the question of how history is used to create meaning, provide orientation in the present and indicate desirable alternative actions for the future is examined. Using a number of Swedish examples from the years 1939 to 1953, the dissertation investigates how history is used for moral, political and existential aims, with focus given to the Swedish political scientist and writer Hebert Tingsten (1896-1973).

    Like a large number of European intellectuals, Tingsten wrestled with questions about history, progress and Western culture in various efforts to adress 20th century crises and wartime experiences during this period.

    I argue that Tingsten's critique of ideological uses of history incorporates his own interpretation of history with its own moral, political and existential implications. Furthermore, I argue that Tingsten's critique of various philosophies of history is in itself one particular form of use of history; history placed in the service of life, ethics and politics, as much as it is a critique of certain epistemological doctrines about the methodolocal problems of history.

    The Sound of the Rain Needs no Translation: Synen på samhället och den moderna människan hos Alan Watts2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1940s, 50s and 60s the two youth movements of the beats and the hippies emerged in the United States. Disagreeing with the progressive positivism of the previous generations these youths were part of a counter culture that adhered to an ideal of living in the present.

    Alan Wilson Watts (1915–1973), most known for his popularization of eastern philosophy and religion in general and Zen-Buddhism in particular, became one of the most influential and well-read advocates of the new movements. Drawing upon eastern philosophy and religion as well as modern psychology, Watts challenged the western world view by rejecting the dualism of self and environment, arguing that man is one with God and nature and claiming that nothing exists but the present experience here and now.

    Based on Watts’ view of man and reality, and in the context of the emerging youth movements, this study examines Watts’ criticism of western culture and society as well as his view on happiness and the possibility of a better life for the individual living in the west.

    The study shows that, according to Watts, the root of the problem facing western society lies in man’s incapability of distinguishing concept from reality, preferring abstract ideas and symbols to the experience present in everyday life. As a result, man perceives himself as separate from nature, waging war on his environment in a futile attempt at finding happiness by constantly striving for ever greater achievements of which the main goal always seems to lie somewhere in the future but never in the present. His ideas inspired the youth movements, although they moved in a different direction than the one he would have wanted.

    Watts, suggesting that an altered understanding of oneself as one with the universe is central in maintaining a thriving society in union with nature, claims that the essence of happiness consists of this understanding here in the present rather than the pursuit and obtaining of a desired goal.

    Under the Influence of Saturn: The Renaissance Poet as the Melancholic Prophet

    In his Problema XXX, I, Aristoteles asks the question: “Why is it that all those who have become eminent in philosophy or politics or poetry or the arts are clearly melancholics?"

    This article is concerned with how, during the French Renaissance, poets such as Pierre de Ronsard (1524-85) and Joachim du Bellay (1522-60) began, in the traces of “Nostradamus”, Michel de Nostredame (1503-66), to investigate this "problem" in their search for genius, heroism, and creativity. They both fitted into the humanist poetic tradition inspired the Neo-Platonism of Marsilio Ficino (1433–1499), at the head of the long line of modern exegetes of the Aristotelian passage.

    According to Ficino, the idea of melancholy touched on advanced, complex theories not only on madness, spleen and depression: At the same time this temper, associated to the deep influence of Saturn, was also connected to ambition and fantasy as well as to intellectual and physical achievement. In this context, the concept of melancholy became an explanatory trope of humanism.

    The article begins with some explanations on Neo-Platonism as the basic philosophy underlying much of French Renaissance poetry and art, and on  Ficino’s enthusiasm for Saturn and Melancholy, linked together, as a precondition of the exceptional.

    It is then demonstrated how the poetic theories of the Pléiade gradually led on to a prophetically inspired poetry with Nostradamus as a role model. In their poetic world, both Ronsard and du Bellay wanted to explore the image of the poet as a prophet. They turned to the ancients for inspiration, and investigated the poets way to divination through communication with divine sources and oracles as Plato described it. Hopefully, the article will cast some fresh light on a number of challenging poems written in the 1550s and 60s in France.

    Ut ur bastun, grabbar!: En queerteoretisk studie av Bastuklubbslagen och sexualitetsnormer under aids tidiga utbredning i Sverige2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The 1980s was a decade when homosexuality was frequently debated because of the contemporary incoming of aids. Since aids first affected homo- and bisexual men they became stigmatized as the risk group. The Swedish authorities started to act with epidemical methods at 1985/86, which restricted the sexual minority. This study, unlike others made before, contextualizes the lawmaking of Bastuklubbslagen, a prohibition concerning gaysaunas, by analyzing it with queer theoretic perspectives. Through an investigation of Bastuklubbslagen and contemporary sexual norms, this survey shows that the making of distinctions between hetero- and homosexuality were central to the context of the lawmaking. The outcome primarily shows that sexual norms were linked to a heteronormative point of view when Bastuklubbslagen was motivated by the authorities. Heteronormative ideals about monogamy and twosomeness made impact on the founding of the law. Sex between men was pointed out as harmful and gaysaunas as the explicit locations for the spreading of aids. My survey is contextualizing behaviors as the authorities described meant a risk of being infected by aids, or to spread it. My study has shown that homo- and bisexuals were regarded as the active actors of aids increasing, while the heterosexual majority was passivated. In the field of historical queer studies this study enhances the greatness of heterosexual normativity within the stigmatization and sanctions made by the authorities’, as Bastuklubbslagen became an aids prevention strategy.
