    Könspolitiska nyckeltexter: från Det går an till #metoo2019Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Könspolitiska nyckeltexter är en mångfacetterad introduktion till svensk genushistoria. Genom ett pärlband av originaltexter, från C.J.L. Almqvists roman Det går an 1839 till #metoouppropen 2017, ges en fördjupad förståelse av hur kön har diskuterats, politiserats och iscensatts under nästan 200 år. Varje nyckeltext är kommenterad och analyserad av en forskare.

    Arbete, sexuella rättigheter, familjeliv, diskriminering, våld, försörjning, värnplikt, rösträtt, preventivmedel, skönhet och barnomsorg är några exempel på de många frågor som behandlas i boken, nu i omarbetad och utvidgad upplaga.

    ‘The sea shall have our weapons’: small arms and forced migration across the Baltic Sea during the Second World War2020In: Journal of Conflict Archaeology, ISSN 1574-0773Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the Second World War, a large number of guns were brought to Sweden by refugees escaping the occupation powers of the eastern Baltic countries. Most people had very limited space for bringing belongings with them, but small arms were apparently highly prioritised when setting out – yet, at the same time, they were usually disposed of in the course of the crossing. Informed by Latours’ thoughts on hybrid actors, this paper explores the relationship between humans and arms during the escape across the Baltic Sea in 1943–45. It is shown that although they were seldom fired, the physical presence of these arms directly affected human action, perception and identities, and that it did so in different ways during different phases of the crossing.

    The Amazon Archers of England: Longbows, gender and English nationalism 1780–18452019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1780s the medieval weapon of war; the English longbow, enjoyed a renaissance, as historical archery became a fashionable recreation among the English aristocracy. Later, during 1819-1845, longbow archery developed into a mass movement, as it spread downwards in the English class system, into the bourgeoning middle class. During the entire time period of 1780-1845, the “English warbow” was instrumental in producing a specific English (i.e. not British) nationalistic memory culture regarding the medievalmilitary triumphs of the “English bowmen” in battles of old, against French and Scottish forces, as well as reproducing a nationalistic narrative surrounding the English national hero and master-archer Robin Hood. The English longbow, as an object, became a mani- festation of English nationalism. An important fact was that both men and women were included as archers, despite the masculine context of the memory culture surroundingmilitary archery, the celebration of medieval English battlefield victories and the man- liness of the English “bowmen”. How did England come to view the female archer as an ideal for English women, while at the same time publicly upholding a patriarchal doctrine of a feminine “private sphere” womanhood, whereby women should be constrained to the domestic space as housewives, mothers and daughters? How was the English inclusion of females in the nationalistic public sphere of longbow archery made possible, communica- ted and reproduced? In summary, this study is about how longbow archery was manife- sted in the context of the rise of English modern nationalism and how women were inclu- ded – or rather included themselves – as English longbow archers. As the study shows, the answers exists in an inter-relating web of English memory culture regarding warfare and historical archery; gender constructions and female agency; constructions of English national identity and English nationalism within a British context; and class developments in English society. This accounts for how the Amazon Archers of England came to exist from 1780-1845.

    Brisingamen and the Menet necklace2009In: Glaube, Kult und Herrschaft Phänomene des Religiösen im 1. Jahrtausend n. Chr.in Mittel- und NordeuropaAkten des 59. Internationalen Sachsensymposionsund derGrundprobleme der frühgeschichtlichen Entwicklung im Mitteldonauraum / [ed] Uta von Freeden, Herwig Friesinger & Egon Wamers, Berlin, 2009, p. 219-230Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the jewellery worn by the goddess Freyja, the Brisingamen. The author has previously claimed that brising (“glowing”) is a heiti for “garnet”, in Latin called carbunculus and in Greek ἄνθραξ. The word men has been compared by other authors to the Old German word menni meaning a collar for a dog. However, its origin may have been the Menet (alternatively Menat or Menit) – originally the necklace of the cow god Hathor which in the Greco-Roman time was taken over by the fertility goddess Isis. The Menet necklace was mostly used in ceremonies together with the musical instrument sistrum, when the rattling of the Menet was an important element. The late Roma like bracteates or coin imitations and garnet jewellery were important elements, too. Owing to its many metal pendants the Brisingamen could have produced a sound, though in this case not rattling but rather a sound more like jingle bells. This paper presents several precious items of jewellery representing Freyja’s Brisingamen from the Viking period, the most exquisite examples being the necklaces from Hoen in Norway and Eketorp in Sweden

    Makten och döden: Stat och kyrka möter svenska efterlevande under ett långt 1700-tal2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis addresses the issue of how the Swedish governmental authorities – the secular (the State) and the ecclesiastical (the Swedish church) – aimed at treating the population during the early modern era. The question asked is whether the authorities always strived to foster the people, or whether there were areas where care for individuals was more important. This is explored by a study of the authorities’ general normative principles for the handling of death.

    The study focuses two normative problems: the first concerns how the authorities decided that the deceased should be taken care of; the second concerns the norms formulated regarding the actions of the survivors. These problems are explored through normative source material – laws, royal ordinances, church regulations, service books and hymnbooks – and to some extent illustrated by funeral sermons and grief correspondence. A framework for interpreting the handling of death is used where care is placed on a level equal to social support, and fostering to that of demands.

    The handling of death was characterised by great continuity. The norms concerning the handling of the deceased foremost aimed at getting the deceased interred in a respectable fashion, and they were motivated by care. The prescriptions concerning the survivors are more complex and the amount of care and fostering respectively varied, depending on whether the regulations had ecclesiastic or secular origin. The study shows that the authorities and especially the Church were mainly acting out of care for individuals. There were also obvious fostering elements, but it is impossible to say that the authorities always displayed a single fostering ambition. Hence care and fostering must be considered parts of a whole, since all fostering in some sense could be understood as motivated by care.

    Abstract [en]

    This artichle discusses the art of interpreting and using arhcive accounting models startin in the work of the Swedish Military Archives from the time around the turn of the 19th century. The intention is to see if anything in this act could be used to facilitate the introduction of the activity based archive accounting model. Hence the study focuses on the lessons we can learn from the early 20th century introduction of the principle of provenance and "allmänna arkivschemat". I also compare the conditions and argue that the differences are småller in the present change than it was 100 years ago, since the principle of provenance still stands. At the same time I argue that there are reasons to facilitate the possibilities to re-search records over time and between different archive accounting models.

    “She said she was called Theodore”: -        A modality analysis of five transcendental saints in the 1260’s Legenda Aurea and 1430’s Gilte Legende2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores modalities in two hagiographical collections from the late Middle Ages; the Legenda Aurea and the Gilte Legende by drawing inspiration from post-colonial hybridity theories.. It conducts a close textual analysis by studying the use of pronouns in five saints’ legends where female saints transcend traditional gender identities and become men, and focuses on how they transcend, live as men, and die. The study concludes that the use of pronouns is fluid in the Latin Legenda Aurea, while the Middle English Gilte Legende has more female pronouns and additions to the texts where the female identity of the saints is emphasised. This is interpreted as a sign of the feminisation of religious language in Europe during the late Middle Ages, and viewed parallel with the increase of holy women at that time. By doing this, it underlines the importance of new words and concepts when describing and understanding medieval views on gender.

    Suspended Value: Using Coins as Pendants in Viking-Age Scandinavia (c. AD 800–1140)2018Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of coins as pendants is a common practice in the Scandinavian Viking Age (c. AD 800–1140). About three per cent of the coins circulating in Scandinavia show signs of having been adapted for suspension, either with a small hole or a loop. Modifying coins in this way changes the nature of the object. The pierced and looped coins move from having an economic function to having a display and symbolic function, at least temporarily. 

    After being long neglected by both archaeologists and numismatists, the reuse of coins as pendants has started to receive attention in recent years. This arises mainly from a desire to approach coins from perspectives other than purely economic ones. Coins, like any other archaeological object, are part of material culture. It is therefore also relevant and necessary to investigate their social and cultural significance.

    The aim of this thesis is to understand why coins were adapted for suspension and worn as personal ornaments in Viking-Age Scandinavia. Unlike most ornaments of the time, the production of which necessarily involved craft specialists, the Viking-Age coin-pendants could be produced directly by their owners. Their study can thus provide unique insights into how the coins of which they are made, and the messages they carry, were perceived by those using them. What made coins so meaningful that they were often turned into pendants?

    The point of departure adopted here is the object, the ‘coin-pendant’ itself, but this object does not exist in a vacuum. Particular attention is paid to the different contexts that the coin-pendants have navigated throughout their lives, such as minting, use as currency or use as ornament. This contextual approach is combined with a semiotic one, so as to better understand how the meaning of the object was constructed. 

    The relationship between coin-pendants and owners of coin-pendants can be explored by investigating several processes that reflect the owners’ intentions, such as coin selection, modification for suspension, orientation of the motives and combination with other ornaments. These processes allow us to understand how the coin-pendants were valued by those using them.  However, it is not possible to fully understand this relationship without putting it into perspective. This means studying: (1) the wider social, economic, cultural and religious framework in which the practice of reusing coins as pendants is situated; (2) the objects with which the coin-pendants are metaphorically associated.

    The material forming the basis for this study is both archaeological and numismatic. It consists of two main components: 134 Scandinavian graves containing coin-pendants and a random sample of 80 Scandinavian hoards. The hoard material is primarily intended for quantitative purposes while the grave catalogue is primarily intended for qualitative purposes. The importance of studying the Viking-Age coin-pendants both in graves and in hoards cannot be overemphasised. None of these contexts directly reflects the reality of the practice.

    The study shows that the practice of using coins as pendants was very diverse and could be adapted to individual tastes. Within this diversity, however, a common denominator emerges: the object ‘coin’. It is clear that there was something special about coins in Viking-Age Scandinavia and that the meaning of the coin-pendants was largely derived from the ideas with which coins were associated.

    Deterrence or reassurance?: Nordic responses to the First Detente, 1953-19562007In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 183-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Historians remember 1953 for the death of Stalin and the ensuing relaxation of East-West tensions, now known as the First Detente. Based on recent Cold War scholarship supplemented by primary documentation, this comparative study looks at the Nordic reaction to the First Wtente 1953-1956 in terms of deterrence and reassurance. The results suggest that, while the Nordic governments uniformly welcomed a more relaxed international atmosphere and entertained hopes of genuine dialogue between East and West, they Often differed in their interpretations of Soviet motives and the genuineness of the post- Stalin foreign policy. The tendency to put added emphasis on reassurance (end hence less deterrence) was most apparent in the cases of Iceland and Finland. Danish and Swedish policy shared this tendency, but lacked the degree of consensus found in Iceland. Norway seems to have been the least amenable to a change in perspective. The course of the First Detente led to an even stronger emphasis on reassurance than had been the case previously. In all of the Nordic countries the invasion of Hungary had a similar alarming effect - it swung the pendulum back toward misgivings about Soviet intentions.

    Remembering Personal Heroism in Times of Democratization: Some Thoughts about the Functionality of Belgian and Swedish Diplomatic Memoirs2012In: Transnational Subjects: History, Society and Culture, ISSN 2045-5232, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 95-103Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Historians have seldom asked why diplomats write their memoirs, and have only rarely inquired into the relationship between the diplomatic profession and the literary genre of memoirs. This essay attempts to clarify these questions by focusing on the Belgian and Swedish diplomatic communities as test cases. We argue that the democratization of diplomacy in the twentieth century incited diplomats to take up their pens in defense of their profession. In order to harmonize their images of self with a changing world and an ever more critical public opinion, they tended to stress the heroic dimension of their professional identities.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents four different examples of how studies of contemporary cremation practices are an important aspect of archaeological research, both as a focus of archaeological research into the recent and contemporary past and as a source of analogy and/or anti-analogy in the interpretation of prehistoric mortuary practices. I show that archaeology contributed in a most direct way to the introduction of modern cremations in Sweden, that an archaeological analysis may be made of the architecture of death, and that the very cremation act of today may be fruitfully contrasted to that of Late Iron Age Scandinavia. Lastly, I discuss the significance of the concepts of the body, identity and person.

    This paper discusses Scandinavian gold foil figures from the early part of the Late Iron Age (AD 550–1050). The author presents two major points of interest that have been neglected in previous research. The first highlights how the manipulations the figures have undergone must be taken into consideration, which is accomplished with the help of theatre theory, semiotics and anthropology. The second places an emphasis on how the context from which the figures have been retrieved must be analysed. Consequently, from the example of a ceremonial building at Uppåkra, Sweden, it is contended that the figures were made by artisans/smiths that, apart from expertly making the figures, also acted as ritual specialists when the structure was built or inaugurated. As such, they were responsible for depositing specific figures in particular, designated and pivotal places that needed protection or other ritual treatment. The gold foil figures further highlight the intertwinement between subject and object, human and nonhuman, as well as between the divine and the mundane. Therefore they contribute significantly to discussions on materiality.

    Abstract [sv]

    Den lilla figurin som återfanns i Lejre år 2009 utropades genast till att vara en man och dessutom asaguden Oden. Men stämmer det? Kan arkeologer verkligen vara säkra på att den vikingatida danska miniatyrfiguren är man och att det är Oden? I denna artikel diskuteras vilka konsekvenser enkla kategoriseringar får för vår förståelse av såväl förhistoria som nutid. Dessutom ges förslag till alternativa sätt att närma sig figurinen.

    Masking Moments: The Transitions of Bodies and Beings in Late Iron Age Scandinavia2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores bodily representations in Late Iron Age Scandinavia (400–1050 AD). Non-human bodies, such as gold foil figures, and human bodies are analysed. The work starts with an examination and deconstruction of the sex/gender categories to the effect that they are considered to be of minor value for the purposes of the thesis. Three analytical concepts – masks, miniature, and metaphor – are deployed in order to interpret how and why the chosen bodies worked within their prehistoric contexts.

    The manipulations the figures sometimes have undergone are referred to as masking practices, discussed in Part One. It is shown that masks work and are powerful by being paradoxical; that they are vehicles for communication; and that they are, in effect, transitional objects bridging gaps that arise in continuity as a result of events such as symbolic or actual deaths.

    In Part Two miniaturization is discussed. Miniaturization contributes to making worlds intelligible, negotiable and communicative. Bodies in miniatures in comparison to other miniature objects are particularly potent. Taking gold foil figures under special scrutiny, it is claimed that gold, its allusions as well as its inherent properties conveyed numinosity. Consequently gold foil figures, regardless of the context, must be understood as extremely forceful agents.

    Part Three examines metaphorical thinking and how human and animal body parts were used in pro-creational acts, resulting in the birth of persons. However, these need not have been human, but could have been the outcomes of turning a deceased into an ancestor, iron into a steel sword, or clay into a ceramic urn, hence expanding and transforming the members of the family/household. Thus, bone in certain contexts acted as a transitional object or as a generative substance.

    It is concluded that the bodies of research are connected to transitions, and that the theme of transformation was one fundamental characteristic of the societies of study.

    Materials of affect: Miniatures in the Scandinavian Late Iron Age (550-1050 AD)2013In: Archaeology After Interpretation: Returning Materials to Archaeological Theory / [ed] Benjamin Alberti, Andrew Meirion Jones, Joshua Pollard, Walnut Creek, Ca: Left Coast Press Inc., 2013Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses Scandinavian gold-foil figures—small human-like figures hammered or cut out of thin foil—from the early part of the Scandinavian Late Iron Age (AD 550—1050) from a relational perspective. Earlier interpretations largely approach them as symbols and representations, which downplays their practical or performative role and results in static or embalmed objects. In this paper I discuss the affective dimensions of the figures, as well as some of the myriad rhizomatic relations that were generated through the processes of manufacture, manipulation, and visual encounter. I will argue that during the Late Iron Age in Scandinavia certain human beings and gold-foil figures were ontological equivalents, and that gold-foil figures go far beyond our contemporary understanding of representations.

    Much Ado about Nothing?: Gender Research in Journals during the last 30 Years within Archaeology2012In: To Tender Gender: The Pasts and Futures of Gender Research in Archaeology / [ed] Ing-Marie Back Danielsson, Susanne Thedéen, Stockholm: Stockholm University, 2012, p. 17-32Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper accounts for the extent to which gender research is represented in leading archaeological journals throughout the 1980s to the present through the database Arts & Humanities Citation Index (ISI). The paper regards gender research as including gender, feminisms, masculinities, queer, intersectionality and embodiment. It is concluded that gender research, despite its alleged significance and progress in later years, is substantially marginalized within mainstream archaeology. Comparisons are also made between gender archaeology and mainstream archaeology and differences between the two are discussed. The paper further addresses current research trends within the humanities placing an increased emphasis on publications in leading peer-reviewed journals. Since the paper shows that gender research is poorly represented in such periodicals the author urges archaeologists interested in gender to publish in these journals.

    Presenting the past: On archaeologists and their influence on modern burial practices2011In: Mortality, ISSN 1357-6275, E-ISSN 1469-9885, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 98-112Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper demonstrates how antiquarians and archaeologists have influenced the burial practices of their times. They have encouraged the re-invention of prehistoric monuments in contemporary burial practices and also been involved in introducing the practice of modern cremation. Whereas antiquarians encouraged the upper-class stratum of society to reuse prehistoric material culture, their nineteenth century successors, archaeologists, turned to another audience. By focussing in greater detail on the earliest archaeologists and their endeavours to make archaeology a subject of public interest, it is revealed how they facilitated the re-invention of prehistoric material culture. For instance, bautas (a prehistoric memory stone for a deceased) became popular in the late nineteenth century, and it was also a category of sepulchral objects that the wealthier working class could afford. Hereby it is further shown how archaeology is an integral part of society, and not, as commonly argued within the history of archaeology, a discipline which in its interpretation of prehistory is influenced from a societal ‘outside’.

    Sense and Sensibility: Masking Practices in Late Iron Age Boat-Graves.2010In: Making Sense of Things.: Archaeologies of Sensory Perception. / [ed] Fahlander, Fredrik and Kjellström, Anna, Stockholm: Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies, Stockholm University , 2010, 400, p. 121-140Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish boat-graves, especially those from Valsgärde and Vendel, have been the subject of many investigations and extensive research since their discoveries in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (e.g. Stolpe & Arne 1912; Arwidsson 1942, 1954, 1977; Lindqvist 1950; Herschend 1997, 2003; Seiler 2001, Schönbäck 2002; Norr (ed.) 2008). The helmets retrieved from these burials are the focus of this paper, and these have been analysed with particular consideration for their role in sensory engagement – both for the person wearing the helmet and for those experiencing it from the outside.

    The paper starts off with a short presentation of the boat-graves and the helmets therein, after which follows an equally short introduction of masking practices and the significance of masking practices during the Late Iron Age in Scandinavia. A more detailed discussion of the helmets of the boat-graves and their connection with sensual activities, the main theme of the paper, follows. Finally, a broader interpretation of the boat-graves themselves is offered and, lastly, conclusions are presented.

    The Rape of the Lock: Or a Comparison between Miniature Images of the Eighth and Eighteenth Centuries2012In: Encountering Imagery: Materialities, Perceptions, Relations / [ed] Ing-Marie Back Danielsson, Fredrik Fahlander, Ylva Sjöstrand, Stockholm: Stockholm University, 2012, p. 29-49Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses Scandinavian gold foil figures from the early part of the Scandinavian Late Iron Age (AD 550-1050) as well as miniature portrait pendants of the eighteenth century. The paper examines the possibility of comparing the two categories of objects, and what may be gained by contrasting historic and prehistoric images. The comparison is made through using Mitchell’s concept meta-picture as a theoretical tool. It is highlighted that the relationality between image and beholder is decisive for how respective objects were comprehended and treated. However, despite the fact that the two analyzed materials were part of different scopic regimes and regimes of practice, they share vitalistic and/or animistic characteristics.
