    Fäderneslandets kännedom: om svenska ortsbeskrivningsprojekt och ämbetsmäns folklivsskildringar under 1700- och 1800-talet2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the period c. 1720-1900 a large quantity of descriptions of rural areas in Sweden were set down on paper. Some 700 local descriptions were printed at the time or have appeared in print during the twentieth century. The most common geographical unit for local descriptions is the parish. As a rule the author was a public servant, and the clergy in particular were industrious local descriptive writers.

    In part the aim of this thesis is to present the Swedish local description projects and local descriptive literature as a phenomenon of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. A further aim is to investigate the way the folklife descriptions which come into most of the local descriptions are constituted for the period c. 1750-1850.

    The local descriptions which form the main object of analysis and discussion in the thesis comprise contemporary delineations which came into being in order to achieve an economic-topographical description of the country, where agriculture and the individual economy of the common man were the focus of attention. These descriptions to a certain extent define the problems the authors associate with the economic life of the countryside and way of life of the population.

    Local descriptions constitute a particular category of geographical delineation and have either come into being on the author's own initiative, in reply to a particular institution or the questionnaire of a particular person, or as an academic dissertation. The authors of local descriptions are in most cases connected with the area they describe. The work was mainly carried out by voluntary effort.

    The idea of the need for a national and methodically organised inventorying of resources associated with the physical environment was the most important reason for undertaking local description projects. These Swedish local descriptions were one of several important cornerstones in the endeavours of the State to increase the population, income from taxes, and welfare in general. Local descriptions constituted materialised visions of optimism for growth, and a better and happier future for the country and its inhabitants, in the modern Sweden which was beginning to emerge in the mid-eighteenth century. Another overall aim was to improve the moral status of the peasantry and promote in them a moral and virtuous way of life. The enlightenment of the common man thereby became a didactic matter, touched on in many local descriptions. This process was not unique to Sweden; corresponding efforts took place in a whole host of other European countries.

    The selection of sixty or so local descriptions studied in this thesis are characterised to a great extent by dualistic tendencies on the part of the public servants in their writings about, and interpretations of, peasant character and the state of the agricultural economy. Descriptions of the noble and exemplary true Swedish peasant faithful to his king, hospitable and honest are combined with descriptions of those same people's immodest consumption of spirits, lack of foresight, inclination to the "superstitious", and pernicious love of material things. In actual fact local descriptive writings consisted of an encounter: on the one side between more abstract and political discourses which contained thoughts of an ideal social organisation and the true nature of a population; while on the other side were the everyday experiences of separate writers vis a vis the qualities and situations of the local peasant population, compiled from their position as objectively observing public servants.

    Den emotionella kraften: En etnologisk studie i abortdiskursen2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Med syfte att undersöka hur diskursen som kulturellt meningsskapande resulterar i kollektiva uppmaningar till disciplinering, i detta fall av kvinna som föreställd moder, klarlägger studien hur de meningsproducerande sociala maktprocesserna möjliggörs och vidmakthålls. Förenad med den politiska diskursteorins förståelse för hur de rådande normerna och värderingarna påverkar individers handlingsutrymme, utreder uppsatsen den juridiska apparatens och den offentliga styrningens diskursiva upprepning av folkhemmets reproduceringspolitik. Med intervjumaterial visar studien hur erfarenheten av hemabort resulterar i en internaliseras självdisciplinering av kroppen hos kvinnan. Den offentliga styrningens verbala praktiker klargör abortdiskursens sociala kulturprocess och dess maktstruktur.

    "Pat är ett diagnostiskt problem": En etnologisk studie av framställningssätt i psykiatriska patientjournaler2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur unga kvinnor framställs genom psykiatrisk journaltext. Tre unga kvinnors patientjournaler fungerar som källa till analys av framställningssätt med fokus på konstruktion och skapandet av sjukdom i text. Denna studie visar på hur olika uttryckssätt och formuleringar i psykiatrijournalen ger möjlighet för vården att förstärka och framhäva sjukdom. Överlag så visar denna studie på att många journalanteckningar är sakliga och korrekta i sin utformning. Dock visar analysen även på hur författare av journaltext väljer att använda sig av kränkande uttryck och värderande ord.

    Skål för en pinne i brasan!: Det karnevaleska i tv-programmet "Färjan"2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ABSTRACT

     

     

    I den här uppsatsen ville jag visa hur kryssningspassagerarnas beteende kan beskrivas med hjälp av karnevaleska teorier i reality-programmet ”Färjans” sista säsong. Syftet var att visa hur det finns andra sätt att analysera serien på än enbart med hjälp av medieteoretiker som är kritiska till genre reality-tv som sådan. Jag har velat visa passagerarnas handlingsutrymme i programmet och beskriva hur deras handlingar ombord på båten kan ses som karnevaleska. Jag utgick från antropologiska teorier om karnevalen och det karnevaleska med hjälp av främst Victor Turner och Roberto DaMatta. Genom att beskriva kryssningen som en liminal fas och kryssningspassagerarna som ett communitas kunde jag visa hur människor beter sig i detta begränsade fysiska utrymme som båten utgör.  Resultatet visar att människor är ombord på båten av samma anledning om än uttrycksformerna kan skifta. I ”Färjan” ser tittarna människor ge sina känslor fritt spelrum. Jag beskriver därför båten som en slags social ventil för handlingar och känslor som inte kan uttryckas på land i vardagens sociala miljö.

    Images in History/History in Images: Towards an (audio)visual historiography2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The outcome of an international symposium taking place on 27–28 April 2017 at the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities in Stockholm, this anthology can be read from either end. At one end, a number of essays addressing the question of how pictorial, especially photographic, representations can and have been understood either as historical artefacts or as sources of knowledge about the past. In a nutshell, images in history. Turn the book over again and continue reading. At the other end, an equal number of contributions – texts as well as images – that approach the same question from the reverse angle: how pictorial, especially photographic, representations can themselves be used to convey a new and different understanding of the past. In another nutshell, history in images. Taken together, the two parts of the volume are intended, each from its own perspective, to prepare the ground for a new historical (sub)discipline, viz. (audio)visual historiography.

    Lyssna till ditt hjärta: Muslimska moderskap och modrandets villkor i Sverige2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with the meanings and conditions of motherhood for some Muslim women in Sweden, the majority of which live in Stockholm. The analysis is based mainly on 16 in-depth interviews with women who self-identify as Muslims. A majority of them were born in Sweden.

    In this study, motherhood and mothering are defined as intentional care work situated within, and shaped by, specific social, cultural and historical contexts. I examine which gendered, religious and spatial meanings are associated with mothering and Muslim identity in a Swedish transnational context. The analysis shows that religion (for most of the women) constitutes an interpretational frame for motherhood and for how children should be mothered into good Muslims and citizens. The women represent Islam as a facilitating religion by making a distinction between religion and culture. The study also shows how the women approach the problem of maintaining the children’s Muslim identities and their self-esteem in a secularized and islamophobic Swedish context, and how they stress the importance of the child developing a strong inner self. Based on the women’s own experiences of having been singled out as different, they respond to a racist logic associated with certain norms and conceptions about what counts as freedom or oppression. The interviews also reveal a transnational aspect of their mothering in which they consider what other places can offer their children. The thesis shows on the one hand how an authentic Muslim identity is related to ideas about Muslim places and origins; on the other hand it demonstrates how the women’s ambivalent affinities with Sweden, and (what they consider to be) Swedish and Muslim values, destabilize such an unambiguous connection. These ambivalent identifications show how the women’s conditional affinities become relevant for how they speak about motherhood and mothering and for how they relate to questions concerning “the good of the child”.

    The Trickster and the Witch: On the Romani Origins of "Captain Elin's Idol"2022In: Arv. Nordic Yearbook of Folklore, ISSN 0066-8176, E-ISSN 2002-4185, Vol. 78, p. 7-39Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At the center of this article stands a striking but poorly understood artefact held at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm (NM.0159389): A piece of bovine leg bone carved in the likeness of a human skull. Traditionally described as an “idol,” the artefact belongs to a bundle of “witchcraft tools” (trolltyg) that have been attributed to the legendary witch, “Captain Elin,” loosely built on the historical person Elin Eriksdotter from Mofikerud, who was tried in a late witch trial in Näs, Värmland, in 1720. Scholars have long known that the attribution of the skull figure and most of the other items to Elin is false. In this article, we first describe how the association with “Captain Elin” arose, shedding new light on the creation of the legend and its association with the “witchcraft tools.” Secondly, we present new archival evidence that suggests an entirely different context for the bone artefact, namely in the encounters between Romani people and the majority population at the end of the Swedish Great Power era. We discuss the significance of this new context for the cultural memory of magic and witchcraft in Sweden, and for our understanding of the Romani minority’s place in early-modern society.

    (Re)imagining Turkey: Bureaucratic relations in the creation of a national identity during the Kemalist single-party regime 1932-19512021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is an exploration of the social engineering of the single-party era through the lenses of state officials in their work of propagating the nationalist state ideology. It aims to bring the state officials, in their (re)production of the beliefs and values as products and as the (re)producers of the state ideology, to the forefront. More specifically, it studies the negotiations and the contestations between state officials in regards to three main social structures which are (ethno)nationalism, womanhood, and laicism. A fourth social structure is the hierarchical relations within the state bureaucracy. A deeper understanding of the social engineering through the lenses of state officials is provided through a discursive close reading of the archival data regarding the activities of Halkevleri (People’s Houses), which were state institutions through which the state ideology was propagated to the people.

    Kulturtanter: En studie i kvinnlig kulturkonsumtion2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is, using the Swedish expression “kulturtant” (cultured lady) as starting point, to understand how and why women consume the products of the culture industry more eagerly than men. The study is using the concepts put forward by Pierre Bourdieu; fields, capital and habitus. It is a qualitative study based on discussions in focus groups, interviews and material gathered through Google Alerts. In the literature this gap between the sexes with regard to the higher consumption on behalf of women has been referred to as the “puzzle” of women´s cultural consumption.

    The empirical results show that the women in the study are well aware of what they want to gain by participating in cultural activities like reading, going to concerts, watching plays or going to the movies. There are three main results: The first result is that the women in the study want to participate in activities with peers that respect them. The second result is that the women are eager that their cultural activities should give them durable experiences. The third result can be described as a wish of the women that taking part in cultural activities will help them to develop as human beings, to become better persons. The women have made what can be called a culture journey that in analogy with a class journey may be argued to be non-reversible.

    Det Reserverade Bordet: En etnologisk studie av maskuliniteter på en sunkbar2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här är en kandidatuppsats i etnologi som bygger på ett fältarbete bestående av deltagande observationer och åtta intervjuer med stamgäster och personal på en sunkbar i centrala Stockholm. Syftet är att analysera hur olika maskulinitetsformer skapar en manlig stamgästgemenskap och hur detta uttrycks genom sexualitet och klass samt i relation till femininitet. Uppsatsen är teoretiskt inspirerad av framförallt maskulinitetsforskaren Raewyn Connell och kulturgeografen Linda McDowell där betoningen ligger på hegemonisk maskulinitet och förkroppsligandet av maskuliniteter i den specifika miljö som sunkbaren utgör. Stamgästernas olika positioner i klassamhället ger gemenskapen en dynamisk form samtidigt som heterosexualitet är en gemensam nämnare. Dessutom påverkar såväl avsaknad av kvinnor vid stambordet som att yrkeskvinnor intar maktpositioner i rummet hur maskulinitet formas och förhandlas på sunkbaren.

    Immigration, Gender, and Family Transition to Adulthood in Sweden2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the profound issues for the future is the extent to which immigrants and their children will become part of Swedish society or remian politically, culturally and economically distinctive. Therefore, the study of transition to adulthood among the adult children of immigrants is critical in understanding the direction of changes over time in the families of young women and men. In particular, this book discusses if the children of immigrants in Sweden choose to cohabit as do those of Swedish origin, or not? Are they more likely to select partners from their own group? And do they construct families that are egalitarian as do those of Swedish origin or conform to more male-dominated relationships?

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines critical perspectives on Body Mass Index (BMI) in ongoing societaldiscussions, focusing on poststructuralism, gender, consumer society, and race. Using fatstudies, intersectionality theory, and poststructuralism, the research integrates Foucault'spower theories. Analyzing six scholarly articles, the study categorizes BMI criticisms,emphasizing Foucault's biopower concepts as key to understanding societal regulation. Theparadox of power is evident as the slim body signifies self-discipline in a consumer-drivenculture valuing control. The paper also highlights BMI's critique for disregarding gender andrace, originating from the white male body, and immerses into historical associations. Thefindings of this paper uncovers how the discourse on BMI is connected to commercialinterests, politics, and economics, influencing power dynamics. In conclusion, the studyunderscores the link between BMI discourse, poststructuralism, and self-discipline, whilerevealing its limitations in a diversity context, with gender and race influencing criticism.Power, commercial interests, and societal politics emerge as crucial within this discourse.

    Bryllup, mening og moral: Om kongelige overgangsriter i 2001 og 20022003In: Tidsskrift for kulturforskning, ISSN 1502-7473, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 39-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Royal weddings are magical moments. By stirring emotions and moving the public, they may redirect opinion and silence critical voices - at least for a while. This paper argues that a more long-term support for the monarchy will need an additional underpinning of respect for royal professionalism, and that studies of royal weddings, accordingly, should pay attention to how these ceremonies present their main characters as professional royal performers. The point is exemplified by a tentative comparison of the weddings of the Norwegian Crown Prince, in August, 2001 and a Norwegian princess, in May, 2002, and by some reflections on public reactions to these weddings.

    Kongelige bryllup er magiske; de kan bevege sansene og snu en opinion. Men hvor lenge varer magien? Denne artikkelen hevder at en mer langsiktig oppslutning rundt monarkiet må hvile ikke bare på et folkelig engasjement i ritualer og fester, men også på en videre respekt for hvordan de kongelige hovedpersonene utøver sine profesjonelle roller. Derfor bør vi også komplettere vår faglige interesse for bryllupene med en fokusering på hvordan kongelige rolleutforminger blir artikulert i disse ritualene. Artikkelen eksemplifiserer en slik tilnærming ved å sammenligne de to norske kongebarnbryllupene som fant sted i 2001 og 2002, og ved å reflektere rundt noen trekk i de offentlige reaksjonene på disse begivenhetene.

    En norsk besvärjelse: 17 maj-firande vid 1900-talets slut2000Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Norwegian Constitution Day is at face value a nationalist manifestation, focused on the celebration of Norwegian freedom. In the 1990's, celebrations of Constitution Day are broadly attended and highly appreciated among participants. But how do they work? How do they give form to an abstract ideology, and how are the ritual forms lived through and made sense of by participants - and to what ideological ends? Drawing upon theories of ritual efficiency, the author examines the organisation of the celebrations as well as participant experience and constructions of meaning. The conclusions show that concepts of peace and freedom are crucial in participant understanding, but that they are differently interpreted by participants in various generations. For persons belonging to post-war generations, the country and its qualities are more central topics for reflection that peace and freedom. It is also noted that celebration practice has a great appeal in its own right, and that it might be enjoyed and reproduced even when national dimensions are not fully experienced, or when they are explicitly questioned.

    A Proper Wedding

    A proper wedding, according to popular expectations in contemporary Sweden, should be large and carefully planned, and take place in a church. This paper describes how such elaborate weddings can produce mixed feelings among clergy in the Church of Sweden, and how the organisation promotes the idea that a small and simple wedding is a good wedding. Furthermore, the paper shows how the wedding service has been discussed and reformed in the current process of revising the Book of Worship of the Church of Sweden, and finally reflects upon some alternatives when it comes to presenting, performing and perceiving the ritual. The paper can be read as an experiment in thinking about ritual form, but also as a window into current challenges and processes of change in the former state Church of Sweden.

    Etnologins regionala karaktär och internationella ambitioner2009In: RIG: Kulturhistorisk tidskrift, ISSN 0035-5267, E-ISSN 2002-3863, no 1, p. 28-34Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    It is hard to deny that Swedish Ethnology retains a regional character, despite the fact that nowadays, many of its practicians transcend national borders in their projects and fieldwork. This paper argues that we could be more confident about the extent to, and the ways in which, Ethnology deals with regional matters. Important in this context is to make clear that our mission insofar is to investigate cultural processes in Sweden and not "a Swedish culture", and that this ought to be perceived as a comparative task. In addition though, the paper claims that our scholarly writing should transcend linguistic boundaries, and that we should embrace with enthusiasm the possibility of reaching out to an international community of colleagues by publishing more of our results in English.

    Abstract [sv]

    NS-children are sons and daughters of members of a Norwegian nazi party, that collaborated during the Second World War German occupation of Norway with the foreign regime. In this paper, I discuss recent efforts to articulate in public the sufferings that children in this category had to endure in post-war Norway. Drawing on reflections on politics of identity, I dwell particularly upon how the experiences of the children are connected to recommendations that excuses should be produced, history rewritten, or wider political visions adopted. The conclusion points out a set of issues that I think ought to be considered in the study of processes where marginalised categories are transformed into groups and organisations.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses contemporary ways of understanding and defining culture, on one hand, and the discipline of (European) Ethnology in Sweden, on the other hand. It argues that though many of us have abandoned the concept of culture as an analytical tool, we still sorely need the word when it comes to spelling out what kind of reality we are studying, and what the discipline of Ethnology is actually about. The paper gives a brief outline of a re-formatted minimalistic understanding of culture, suitable for posing open-ended questions about how culture is created, handled and altered in various settings. It also discusses the difficulties that stem from our habit of studying a wide variety of subject matters, and proposes that rethinking and sharpening the concept of "ordinary people" might contribute to solving some problems here. Likewise, the paper stresses that as long as we write our reports in Swedish and are eager to make our texts accessible to wide audiences, Swedish society stands out as the area for which we take on particular responsibility, whether we explicitly intend it or not. However motivated this may be, the paper also suggests that we should expand our writing strategies by contributing more to international scholarly discourse on various fields and issues.

    Kritisk etnologi: Artiklar till Åke Daun2001Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under det sena 1990-talet har det höjts många röster för en kritiskt ifrågasättande etnologi. Parallellt har en utvidgad förståelse av begreppet politik inspirerat till att problematisera politiska aspekter av de mest skiftande verksamheter, inklusive vår egen forskning. Artiklarna i denna antologi bidrar till diskussioner om båda dessa teman. Med utgångspunkt i egna forskningserfarenheter resonerar författarna om kulturarvspolitiska processer, om effekter och implikationer av forskning om det mångkulturella Sverige, respektive om möjliga sätt att förverkliga en feministisk etnologi. Boken vänder sig till en bred kategori av kultur- och samhällsvetenskapligt intresserade läsare, däribland också studenter i etnologi och besläktade ämnen. Den är tillägnad Åke Daun, professor i etnologi och ständig förespråkare för en samhällsengagerad forskning.

    Författarna är Barbro Blehr (red.), Maria Bäckman och Simon Ekström, Barbro Klein, Owe Ronström, Ann Runfors samt Annick Sjögren.

    Abstract [sv]

    Utdrag ur redaktören Martin Ginströms introduktion till tidskriftsnumret:

    "Barbro Blehr 'tömmer' i sin artikel orden lokal och gemenskap på deras många betydeler och försöker finna en hållbar definition att bygga vidare på. I en värld där snart sagt alla människors liv påverkas av olika moderniserings- och globaliseringsprocesser - världen blir så att säga större och mindre på samma gång - förändras också uppfattningen om vad det lokala egentligen innebär. Gamla gränser och identiteter förlorar sin betydelse. Blehr tar fram några drag som karakeriserar det lokala och summerar med två minimiprinciper: icke-anonymitet i de mänskliga relationerna och en föreställning om att det existerar ett samband mellan en grupp människor och en viss plats. Sådana samband behöver inte vara exklusiva /.../"

    Abstract [en]

    In this commentary the idea of local culture is questioned. It is argued that localness is relative, and that this should be clearly recognized. On the other hand, local can also be used in a more basic sense. Phenomena can be local simply by virtue of existing in a specific geographical setting. The mere use of the word local does not therefore imply that the phenomena described represent a specific local culture.

    Lokala gemenskaper: En studie av en nordsvensk by på 1980-talet1994Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    The central question raised in this study is the sense of community in Keskijärvi, a mining village in the north of Sweden. What is the nature of the local community and in which activities is it expressed? This question is examined through an empirical study of two communicative practices which convey local knowledge in the village. The method used is participant observation, supplemented with interviews. Findings indicate that no single, overarching local community exists in the village, that the communities that do exist are of two kinds: concrete vs. imagined, and that acquaintance was a salient feature in the variation between the two communicating practices.
