    Sharia och livet: Islamisk retorik om makt, moral och medelvägen (wasatiyya) på al-Jazira2016Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Claiming a 40 million viewer population, with 97% of viewers Muslims (www.allied-media.com), Jazeera Satellite Channel (JSC) stands out within the sphere of influence among the Arab world. This thesis will examine whether Islam within JSC programming is open to progressive ideas that challenge the intellectual and material lives of its adherents.

    Few media in the Arab world try to exploit the political potential of television as much as JSC. The network covers a broad array of topics ranging from domestic and international relations to moral guidance within Islam. The media’s interest in Islam became a burning issue in the West since the coordinated terror attacks in September 11, 2001 that destroyed the World Trade Centre in New York. Not only were the terror attacks broadcasted live on television screens around the world, but the traumatic crime scene footage in the weeks that followed framed Islam as a religion that promotes violence.

    The Muslim answer to this “biased” and unbalanced framing of 9/11 attacks was JSC among other things. The influence of JSC on its audience’s weltanschauung can hardly be overestimated. In many viewer’s eyes the channel tries to counterbalance the western dominance of the news media. It represents a way of looking at the world from an (Arab)-Muslim perspective.

    One of the major programs that illustrates this tendency is the Islamic talk show al-Sharīca wa-l-ḥayāt (“Shariah and Life”).

    The thesis consists of a critical discourse analysis of dozens of episodes of Sharia and Life of the fall season 2007. The reason behind the choice of critical discourse analysis as an approach is to explore the traces of ideology in the construct of the program’s premise and the promotion of a specific social order in the name of Islam.

    A major feature of Sharia and Life, beyond the fact that the program is aired on one of the largest Arab news channel, is its infamous host, sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi. Al Qaradawi’s lifework as a scholar and a preacher is marked by what he regards as wasatiyya - which is commonly defined as a conciliatory or a moderate stance. For Al Qaradawi, Islam is a way of life that can be adjusted to the realities of modern day life through the prism of wasatiyya. The term wasatiyya is used, albeit indirectly, by other hosts of Al Qaradawi, some are religious figures, others not.

    The relation with the Other is also a major topic that is expressed in Sharia and Life in terms of a neo-colonial critique as well as a critique against today’s value system. In both cases, however, the social ideals of Islam are linked with values that emphasize the role of the family, religion and paternal authority. Though Islam is consistently articulated as coherent creed, a number of hosts recognize that fitna (“civil strife”) constitutes a challenge to the moral integrity of Islam’s normative values.

    Delving into the influences of one popular program that offers its public legal guidance reveals a complex dynamic about how each of the distinct factors addressed above impacts Arab culture, religion and society. The results of this analysis will be reviewed within this thesis.

    Neologisms in Modern Literary Syriac2018Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is the culmination of the Turabdin Project which goal is to monitor the development of Modern Literary Syriac essentially from the 1980s to the present. As a Scandinavian project, the majority of the data consists of literature written and published in Sweden. The approach is descriptive and contrastive relative to the Classical language, significant differences between Modern Literary Syriac and Classical Syriac are noted. The main focus is on neologisms and new developments in the lexicon.The present volume is subdivided into two parts. Part One, Context and Analysis, places the collected Modern Literary Syriac neologisms in their sociolinguistic context and presents an analysis of the most prominent features that characterise the data. Part Two, Glossary of Neologisms, consists of the list of neologisms collected, presenting the meaning of the entries, as deduced from their context, as well as proposed etymologies, their relationship to Classical Syriac, attestations in the sources, synonyms in Modern Literary Syriac when available in the data, and other relevant information. Finally, an Index of English Terms and Expressions is appended to the end of the book. Here the English translations of the neologisms discussed in the present volume are listed.

    Arabic in Home Language Instruction: Language Acquisition in a Fuzzy Linguistic Situation2017Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the command 8th-graders in Arabic home language instruction have of written Modern Standard Arabic and if the type of instruction they have received and/or contact with written Arabic affect their performance. Background chapters discuss variables connected to the Arabic language (diglossia, research on reading and writing in Arabic) and variables connected to HLI in Sweden (set-up, steering documents). 

    The testing material consisted of a translation test from Swedish to Arabic combined with a questionnaire that addressed various factors of relevance to language acquisition. 

    The translations were analysed on three levels: (1) handwriting, (2) spelling and (3) morphosyntax. The main result of the analysis was that the participants were highly heterogeneous: some participants produced incomplete translations in handwriting that was barely legible, whereas others had good results for all measures. Many of the participants relied on a phonological strategy for spelling. For example, even short, high-frequency words such as personal pronouns and prepositions had not been spelled correctly. 

    The results for handwriting, spelling and morphosyntax were checked against the variables (1) years of HLI, (2) extra instruction in Arabic outside of HLI and (3) contact with written Arabic in the free time. The results for the effect of participation in HLI were inconclusive. However, many, but not all, of the participants with good results on the translation test had received extra instruction in Arabic, either in Sweden or prior to coming to Sweden. Reading Arabic in the free time was not in all cases connected to good results, but not reading Arabic in the free time was in most cases connected to a low command of written Arabic. Regarding these results, it is suggested that additional factors (motivation, support from the family, etc.) could be at play. 

    Previous research has addressed the question of heterogeneity in HLI classes. The findings of this thesis illustrate how great the heterogeneity can in fact be, and thus have implications for the set-up of Arabic HLI in Sweden.

    Arabic in Stockholm: Practice and Perception among Second Generation Young Heritage Speakers2017Ingår i: Öst är väst och väst är öst: en vänbok till Henry Diab / [ed] Kerstin Eksell, Lund: Portlak , 2017, s. 113-133Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Arabic is probably the largest non-native language in Sweden. Yet very little research is conducted on the language practices and attitudes among Arabic heritage speakers. The present paper explores, based on responses to a questionnaire, the practices and attitudes of 25 young second generation speakers of Arabic, born in Sweden yet whose parents were born in an Arabic speaking country. The picture that emerges is complex. With the exception of identity, where a large majority view Arabic as a positive factor, the picture is mixed. Arabic seems to have relatively little impact on the lives of the respondents, with no clearly positive or negative tendencies. One factor seems to be the exception, Arabic in Swedish schools is generally viewed negatively.

    Lebanese Place-Names (Mount Lebanon and North Lebanon): A Typology of Regional Variation and Continuity2002Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The present volume covers some 1724 Lebanese place-names in the districts of Mount Lebanon and North Lebanon. The aim has been to: a) establish a database of place-names based on fieldwork; b) present the etymologies of these names based on the latest findings in Semitic lexicography, onomastics and dialectology; and c) plot the results across the Lebanese territory.

    The present volume presents a glimpse of Lebanon's yesterday. An analysis of the place-names, focusing on language, geography and society, tends to confirm that language and religion shifts in Lebanon were gradual. Nearly 49% of the place-names are Arabic, 36% are Aramaic, while some 6% are Phoenician. The traditional dividing lines between religious groups are only slightly reflected in place-names. These groups seem to have had a similar sociocultural development. The landscape holds a central position in Lebanese place-names. Water, human occupation, religion and the family also hold a prominent position.

    Some aspects of Aramaic as attested in Lebanese place names2012Ingår i: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61 Suppl., s. 21-29Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Place names are one of the few sources of information about the Aramaic used in the region of Lebanon for more than two millennia. Therefore a comparative and diachronic study of Lebanese place names is of the utmost importance. The present study is based on a sample of 1724 place names from the regions of Mount Lebanon and North Lebanon. Four features of Aramaic as attested in place names are discussed briefly: two from phonology and two from morphology. The preliminary conclusion one can arrive at is that the Aramaic used in Lebanon is clearly, and as expected, of the Western type. It has a complex development which in some cases is parallel to, yet often distinct from, the development of its Modern West Aramaic cousins
