    Resan i runornas land under 1800-talet: Bilder av Sverige och svenskhet i utländska reseberättelser2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose for this study was to illustrate how images of Sweden and Swedishness is produced and reproduced in travel literature written by four foreign travellers in 19th century Sweden. By doing a close reading and comparing the material, several analytical themes connected to time, place, nationality and social class were located. The theory of representation were then applied, together with the theoretical concepts representing practices, figure of thought and gaze. Locating different figures of thought and representing practices revealed how the travel literature produced and reproduced several and even opposing images of Sweden and Swedishness. The study is to be regarded as an analytical example of 19th century travel in Sweden, but also as the experiences of four individual travellers.

    Att göra hiphop: En studie av musikpraktiker och sociala positioner2019Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation explores music-making processes within the genre of Swedish hip-hop during the first half of the 2010s. Hip-hop is often associated with strong notions about authenticity based both on musical tradition regarding style and aesthetics, as well as social categories such as race, gender, class and place. While hip-hop scholarship has often focused on analyzing social categories as part of identity politics, the practical music-making aspect has often been neglected. The aim of this dissertation is to analyze how hip-hop musicking has been constituted by the combination of musical practices, skills, social positions, and knowledge. The prerequisites of Swedish hip-hop music are analyzed, with a particular focus on the intersection between practical music-making and gender, race, ethnicity, generation and place.

    The primary empirical material consists of qualitative interviews with and observations among club DJs, battle rappers, and hosts at battle rap events, as well as both the participants and the instructors at musical camps. Material from social media is also a part of the empirical material.

    The musicological concept of musicking with its understanding of music as a collection of social processes is an important theoretical foundation for this study. Thinking in terms of musicking instead of music enabled me to broaden the scope of possible social settings where the fieldwork was conducted, as well as the choice of study participants. In order to define the practices, knowledges, skills, and positions specific to the hip-hop context, I introduced the concept of hip-hop musicking. The term “hip-hop musicking” signifies the conceptual marriage of practical music-making and the identity formations within processes of hip-hop music-making. I argue that the concept of musicking benefits from an intersectional perspective, as social positions enable and shape musical practice.

    In the dissertation, the concept of an ideal–typical hip-hop position, inspired by Weber’s ideal type, is used to explore the processes behind music-making that are involved in hip-hop musicking. The ideal–typical individual is understood to be a young man racialized as non-white, is (often) angry, has a criminal record, and is from a vulnerable urban area in Stockholm. Throughout the empirical material, this hip-hop position appears in what is understood as the reproduction of stereotypical ideas of hip-hop music as a masculine and racialized coded sphere. However, it also appears in musicking where feminism is in focus.

    The results of the dissertation show that ideas about this ideal–typical social position strongly affect who is given recognition for their dedication to hip-hop musicking. This is relevant, as ideas about authenticity are important both for the empirical field and for hip-hop scholarship. At times, the study’s participants criticized this position, but at other times, they reproduced it. I argue that the ideal–typical hip-hop position can be understood as something constant that is also involved in change processes. Therefore, development is ongoing in terms of what is considered hip-hop musicking, while aspects of the ideal–typical position are allowed to remain the same. A part of the goal of musicking includes fighting with the ideal–typical and the normative. This, in turn, reproduces power relations while simultaneously involving possibilities for change.

    Handwritten Newspapers: An Alternative Medium during the Early Modern and Modern Periods2019Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is the first edited volume focusing on handwritten newspapers as an alternative medium from a wide interdisciplinary and international perspective. Our primary focus is on handwritten newspapers as a social practice. The case studies contextualize the source materials in relation to political, cultural, literary, and economic history. The analysis reveals both continuity and change across the different forms and functions of the textual materials.

    In the 16th century, handwritten newspapers evolved as a news medium reporting history in the making. It was both a rather expensive public commodity and a gift exchanged in social relationships. Both functions appealed to public elites and their news consumption for about 300 years. From the late 18th century onwards, changing notions of publicness as well as the social needs of private or even secluded groups re-defined the medium. Handwritten newspapers turned more and more into an internal or even clandestine medium of communication. As such, it has served as a means to create social cohesion, political debate, and religious education for nonelite groups until the 20th century. Despite these changes, continuities can be observed both in the material layout of handwritten newspapers and the practices of distribution.

    Abstract [sv]

    Att läsa menyerna för de drygt hundra Nobelmiddagarna som hittills ordnats är att ta del av en veritabel kulinarisk teater. Inte minst belyser hummerns förändrade närvaro vid banketten en viktig förskjutning av idén om hur Sverige ska representeras vid dessa tillfällen.

    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish debate concerning honour killings has largely revolved around the concept of “culture” – or more specifically, it has revolved around the ways in which different writers have criticized some other debaters for misusing the concept. Hence, this debate sheds light on how the concept of culture has come to occupy a position in something one might call a linguistic quarantine. Cultural explanations are often considered an issue which must be handled with great caution in order not to explode into cultural racism, or to an undesired exaggeration of cultural difference. Moreover, the most serious objections against the con- cept of culture seem to occur in the very field which the concept has traditionally been regarded as most suitable for. Recent controversies around phenomena such as honour killings, structural dis- crimination and cultural racism reveals that it first and foremost is in relation to the “exotic other” that cultural explanations nowadays are becoming questioned. On the other hand, few debaters and researchers are ready to seriously do away with a concept they continue to understand as applicable for their own analyses. The aim of this article is, therefore, to highlight some of the critical arguments in this debate, so as to discuss the ambivalences that distinguish contemporary public disputes about culture and cultural explanations.

    keywords: the concept of culture, honour killing, linguistic quarantine, culture racism.

    From Excerpt to Cosplay: Paths of Knowledge in the Nordic Museum Archive2020In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 12, no 1, p. 116-140Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to shed some light on the situation that occurs when scholarly knowledge, once highly valued, is successively undermined, while elements of the same learning live on as attractive resources to other stakeholders. More accurately, the research question relates to the process that starts with many ethnologists who, over time, come to increasingly view formerly important materials as less relevant to their own academic issues. For the sake of the argument, the Nordic Museum’s extensive collection of excerpts concerning folk customs and beliefs is used as an eye-opening case study. During the 1960s and 1970s, folklore researchers and ethnologists retreated from researching those lingering traces of the past—of which the Nordic Museum’s excerpt collection constitutes a powerful material centre—and thus this field was left free for others to claim. By drawing attention to both the productive force of the Nordic Museum’s collection of excerpts, and a number of contemporary and popular representations of ancient folklore, this article actualises a set of questions that deal with the relationship between new and old knowledge; for what becomes of previously sought after academic learning, once treasured in the Nordic Museum Archive, when the vast majority of the discipline heads for new materials, methods and theories?

    Following the Lobster

    In this article, lobsters serve as an analytical trace element for a further discussion about the mutual relation between materiality and meaning. Through keystrokes in different historical and contemporary contexts, the first part of the text presents a number of examples of what a lobster could be – and what it could also be expected to do. The second part discusses the act of following as a culture-analytical method, and indicates the benefits that concepts like frequency, density and population can have.

    Asking oneself what a lobster could be underlines that lobsters have more than one meaning. In other words, it is a way of helping us to see how the meaning we ascribe to a lobster is dependent on the kind of company it keeps. Lobsters seldom appear alone. On the contrary, they are almost always surrounded by other things, at the same time as they are objects for highly varying practices. For someone whose task it is to actively look for lobsters, i.e. what in the article is called following the lobster, this is especially clear. When lobsters are moved from one context to another, the setting is also changed. The earlier network of objects, people and physical environments that surrounded the lobsters changes shape. For lobsters, every new setting also means a new network.

    In this way, the following of lobsters illustrates how translations and meaning-making should be understood as both material and cultural phenomenon. In the analysis, the object is always one and the same – lobsters – while the setting and the network can change several times by simply twisting the lens. All this can be regarded as a kaleidoscopic cultural analysis, where the ambition is to discover something new about the lobster by searching for it in expected as well as unexpected places. At the same time, the intention is also to generate new knowledge about the contexts and activities that are actualised by the presence of the lobsters. This is why the article’s recurring question – which is posed in the presence of every specific lobster population – is, what is the work that the lobsters are expected to do, right there and then?

    In this volume of studies, Animal: Moments of Affect, Moments of Pain, eight ethnologists apply a cultural perspective to people’s varied and complex relationships with other species. The contributions focus on wild animals, that is, those that are rarely found in the authors’ immediate vicinity. Based on ongoing research, the articles discuss themes such as conflicts and joys in the birdwatching world, charismatic animals in various exhibition contexts, children’s fears, morbid animal jokes and the ritual transformation of living animals into edible meat. The texts range from the tender, comical and cute to death and existential vulnerability. The book begins with the editors presenting an overview of how animals have been produced, noticed and studied in a mostly Nordic humanistic research context. Then the articles follow. Based on the idea of affective logic, Elin Lundquist follows the on-site monitoring of the bird hunting that takes place annually in Malta. Mattias Frihammar uses observations at a wilderness gallery with taxidermied animals to reflect on local identity. Lars Kaijser examines the ambivalent and conflicted portrayal of sharks in public aquariums. Sverker Hyltén-Cavallius writes about the death of extinct animals and how this is displayed in natural history museums. Susanne Nylund Skog examines birdwatchers’ stories as an expression of collecting and as a way of manifesting status. With lobster cartoons as a starting point, Simon Ekström shows how these depict both animal rights issues and human anxiety. Helena Hörnfeldt investigates animal fear and the diffuse boundary between humans and animals. Proceeding from different depictions of slaughter and the preparation of meat, Michelle Zethson problematizes how some animals are made edible. The volume ends with an epilogue by the editors commenting on the findings.

    E-sport som sport: En etnologisk undersökning av idrottsligt erkännande2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker hur aspirerande idrotter kan gå tillväga för att försöka beviljas medlemskap i Riksidrottsförbundet, och därmed uppnå det närmsta ett officiellt idrottserkännande vi har i Sverige. Materialet för undersökningen utgörs av två ansökningar till Riksidrottsförbundet, som lämnats in av Svenska E-sportförbundet. Vidare undersöks de bedömningar som gjorts i relation till respektive ansökan av Riksidrottsstyrelsen. I analysen används tidigare forskning i kombination med teori hämtad från Pierre Bourdieu för att därigenom undersöka inträdet på det som i uppsatsen tituleras idrottsfältet. I de två försök till inträde som ansökningarna utgör identifieras ett flertal strategier vilka relaterar till fyra för idrotten viktiga områden. Områdena ifråga är fysisk aktivitet, träning, tävling och välmående. Överensstämmelse med dessa områden har i uppsatsen identifierats som särskilt viktigt vid försök till inträde på idrottsfältet, det är alltså en del i det symboliska kapital som jag benämnt som idrottsligt kapital. För att uppbringa ett sådant kapital tycks vissa strategier vara särskilt behjälpliga. Dessa strategier utgörs bland annat av framförda liknelser mellan den aspirerande idrotten och redan erkända sådana. Vid flertalet tillfällen förekommer i ansökningarna refererande av forskning, något som tycks kunna ge legitimitet åt den ansökande. Därtill har ytterligare ett symboliskt kapital för idrottsfältet, organisationskapitalet, identifierats i undersökningen. Organisationskapitalet figurerar särskilt i relation till de organisationsmässiga krav som ställs på det förbund som representerar en aspirerande idrott. Uppsatsen finner att ett visst innehav av såväl idrottsligt kapital som organisationskapital tycks krävas för att en aspirerande idrott ska vinna erkännande på idrottsfältet.

    Rituell process, tradition och media: Socialdemokratisk första maj i Stockholm1999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation's initial proposition is that political ideology can be embodied in ritual form. The use of Social Democrat May Day demonstrations - a political procession similar to parades - in Stockholm as a tool for creating ideology, and to both maintain and disseminate Social Democratic ideology is analysed. One perspective is that May Day forms part of the creation of traditions, or traditionalisation.

    The symbolic body that the May Day demonstration constitutes has been provided with different contents in different ideological contexts. With the first May Day demonstration of 1890, the working class appropriated a traditional spring festival. Newspapers invested it with loaded spatial images as civic rebirth, and it was equated with nature's transition from winter to spring. Until the 1930s May Day was still regarded as a worker's festival. When the Social Democrats gained power in 1932, May Day was transformed into the Day of the Swedish People, employing nationalistic rhetoric. It was argued that this festival had been appropriated by capitalism, but that its true values were now restored. As television appeared in the early 1960s, the May Day demonstration was adapted to this new medium. Renewal was the key word. During the ideological and economic crises of the 1990s, many ambivalent means of expression have been used. Irony is one, playing on carnevalesque themes such as death and rebirth. The demonstration participant manifested criticism of the party by utilising such imagery and exploiting the spatial dramaturgy of the ritual. The appearance of this carnival theme can be explained in terms of the general ideological uncertainty prevailing in Sweden. This stemmed from the murder of Prime Minister Olof Palme, a political crisis of confidence in the early 1990s, and the fall of the Eastern bloc, amongst other things. At the same time, the historical role of Social Democracy has been strongly questioned. One hot topic is wether or not the Swedish model of welfare should be preserved. Even established Social Democrats argue that this social form is obsolete. Traditionalism has now become synonymous with retrospection. Within this context, many ask if May Day ought not become a day for general political issues, without processions. There has been similar questioning since the 1890s, and at times the demonstration concept has been claimed to have become stale.

    The first demonstrations paved the way for the worker's entry into "official" public space. Through the disciplined demonstration, the workers' movement showed that they could act in a well-controlled manner, without threatening order. This dissertation analyses the workers' May Day as media event, which has been shaped in dialogue with media accounts. It can therefor be argued that as a ritual form, the workers' May Day demonstration is characteristic of the public dramaturgy of modernity.

    In Rhizomia: Actors, Networks and Resilience in Urban Landscapes2008Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With accelerating urbanization it is crucial to understand how urban ecosystems play a part in generating ecosystem services for urban dwellers, such as clean water, spaces for recreation, stress relief and improved air quality. An equally important question relate to who gets to enjoy these benefits, i.e. the distribution of ecosystem services, and how issues of power and equity influence the management of ecosystems. Through case studies from the urban landscape of Stockholm, this doctoral thesis engages with these perspectives through combining ecological theory with social theory, including social network analysis, actor-network theory and social movement theory. Strategies for how to improve urban ecosystem management are presented along with frameworks for how to analyze issues of power and equity in relation to natural resource management.

    Paper I shows that ecosystem management can be studied through analyzing the structure of social networks, i.e. the patterns of relations between agencies, stake-holders and user groups. Paper II and Paper III analyze, based on a network survey of 62 civil society organizations and in-depth interviews, a transformational process of how an urban local movement managed to protect a large urban green area from exploitation (The Stockholm National Urban Park). Paper IV discusses, based on several case studies from Stockholm, a conducive network structure for linking managers and user groups (e.g. allotment gardens, cemetery managers, and urban planners) across spatial ecological scales so as to improve urban green area management. Paper V presents a framework to analyze the social-ecological dynamics behind the generation and distribution of ecosystem services in urban landscapes.

    The thesis points towards the notion of "a social production of ecosystem services" and argues for deeper engagement with urban political ecology and critical geography to inform governance and collective action in relation to urban ecosystems.

    I mänsklighetens namn: En etnologisk studie av ett svenskt biståndsprojekt i Rumänien2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is an analysis of observations among, and interviews with, Romanian and Swedish employees at a Swedish development aid project in Romania. The aim has been to study the categories of ‘humanity’: how the notions of the ‘human(e)’ and the ‘inhuman(e)’ were created in the context of the project. Further, the aim of the thesis has been to connect the relations in everyday life as it develops in an aid project to the social and societal processes of change in today’s Europe.

    Chapter 1 introduces the theoretical and methodological frameworks of the study. Chapter 2 analyses media representations of institutionalized children in Romania, and describes the development aid in Romania. Chapter 3 describes and analyses the practical work with the children in the everyday life of the project. Chapter 4 focuses on the locally employed project staff, and their adoption of a ‘more human(e)’ identity through working with the Swedish NGO. Chapter 5 analyses how the construction of difference took place in the everyday life of the development aid project. Chapter 6 analyses the development aid as exchange of gifts and applies models of analysis of social work with the so-called deserving and undeserving clients. Chapter 7 is a concluding chapter.

    The construction of the ‘human(e)’ and its opposite, the ‘inhuman(e)’, could be found on three levels. These categories were used in reference to: (1) the children, the sick elderly and the poor families that were the clients of the aid project and were expected to be ‘humanized’ in the course of project implementation; (2) the Romanians who were employed by the Swedish organization and who were to be humanized through their work and through learning Western views on what the human being is; and (3) by implication, the whole Romanian society and all the Romanians who were also to be ‘humanized’ through the intervention of the Western NGOs.
