    Abstract [en]

    A second-season makeover at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. Hoping that "an interesting controversy" would revive the state of Minnesota's failing pavilion, Minnesota adds a large fiberglass Viking, longboat-styled snack bars, and the contested Kensington Runestone itself to its 'Brainpower Builds Profits' exhibit.

    Cross-Border Commemorations: Celebrating Swedish Settlement in America2018Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The histories of colonial settlement in America are generally presented as uniquely national stories. Yet because these histories involved settlers who crossed oceans, they are inherently transnational and have been important for different groups throughout the world. To understand how settlement histories are used to promote social, political, and commercial relations across national borders, Adam Hjorthén explores the little-known phenomenon of cross-border commemorations.

    Focusing on two celebrations of Swedish settlement in America―the 1938 New Sweden Tercentenary and the 1948 Swedish Pioneer Centennial―Hjorthén examines a wide variety of sources to demonstrate how cultural leaders, politicians, and businessmen used these events to promote international relations between the United States and Sweden during times of great geopolitical transformation. Cross-Border Commemorations argues that scholarship on public commemoration should expand beyond national borders and engage the shared and contested meanings of history across local, national, and transnational contexts.

    Abstract [en]

    While genealogy is a practice occupied with questions of roots and belonging, it is also concerned with tracing ancestors outside of national borders. Notions of belonging to history and culture are highlighted through international migration. What does belonging mean for individuals who has historical and contemporary family spread over different countries? How are notions of belonging negotiated in the meeting of different national identities? And how are these processes mediated through genealogy, a project occupied with tracing common bloodlines? This article explores these questions through the case of Swedish-American genealogy. More specifically, it analyzes how this genealogy is represented on contemporary television through the popular TV-show Allt för Sverige

    Abstract [sv]

    För människor som färdas mellan länder är nationalitet en viktig del av identiteten. Det här kommer till uttryck på flera sätt, i upplevda kulturella skillnader,i språklig förvirring, i hur man klär sig och smyckar sina kroppar. En tatuering är ett uttryck för vem du är, eller kanske vem du vill vara. Det är därför inte förvånande att många äldre sjömanstatueringar föreställer just nationella symboler. Man kan kanske förvänta sig att de sjömän från Sverige som reste runt jorden ville visa sin egen nationella identitet. Men en anmärkningsvärt stor andel av tatueringarna från framför allt 1900-talets första hälft i Sjöhistoriska museets samling föreställer inte svenska symboler, utan amerikanska. Den amerikanska flaggan och örnen, indianen och pinuppan var populära motiv. Den amerikanska flaggan var i själva verket ett betydligt vanligare motiv än den svenska flaggan. För att förstå varför svenska sjömän så gärna ville tatuera The Star Spangled Banner på sina kroppar måste vi först bege oss till USA.
