    Useful opium?: On 'adapted religion' and 'harmony' in contemporary China2010In: Journal of Contemporary China, ISSN 1067-0564, E-ISSN 1469-9400, Vol. 19, no 67, p. 949-969Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pragmatism has been a leading feature of Communist Party policies since Mao Zedong's death. The attitude to religion has been something of an exception with many restrictions to the freedom of religion stipulated in the constitution. In recent years, while stressing the 'harmonious society', there has been a change in the view of religion. Recognizing the 'spiritual vacuum' in China after Mao, the party has seen the need for a controlled spiritual development that could also support the economic development. However, in this process the party has tried to control not only religious activity but also religious content and to use it for its own purposes. This is in direct opposition to Marx and Lenin's views on 'religion as opium' and indicates that the party is de facto using 'a reversed opium theory'.

    Den jordanska ekvationen: Islamister och kungahuset på väg mot demokrati?2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jordanien ser sig som en arabiskmuslimsk stat på väg mot en demokrati. Med en sådan självbild blir islam en integral del av samhället. Det stöd som det jordanska samhället gav det Muslimska Brödraskapet i valen november 1989 och 1993 visade dessutom att organisationen blivit något som kungahuset måste ta med i beräkningen i den demokratiska processen. För det Muslimska Brödraskapet kan det upplevas som en tilltalande idé då man genom ett samarbete med kungahuset både kan bevara sin maktbas och dessutom se till att andra konkurrerande och kanske mer militanta och extrema muslimska grupper marginaliseras.

    Den demokratiska processen i Jordanien kan således ses som en samverkan mellan det Muslimska Brödraskapet och kungahuset.

    "Go vote for this man and go home": En studie av tre NGO:s arbete med kvinnor inom Egyptens familjelag2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis is based on interviews with staff from three Egyptian NGOs in Cairo

    during the spring of 2013. The study examines how three Egyptian NGOs discuss the

    woman’s situation within the Islamic legal discourse in the contemporary Egypt. The empiric

    material was analysed through a theoretical framework of gender in Islam, and a discussion of

    the concept of human rights laws in a local context.

    The respondents emphasize the societies gender stereotypes as obstacles in the discussion

    regarding women’s rights. A woman is first and foremost a mother and wife, according to the

    local culture as well as the religion. The respondents are very critical towards the Muslim

    Brotherhoods political agenda, and claim that “they”(the respondents repeatedly referred to

    the MB as “they” in the empiric material) turn to interpretations of the religion to receive

    legitimacy as religious role models. According to the respondents the woman has legal

    rights but the implementation and interpretation of the Islamic law is problematic. Some of

    the respondents accuse the current political Islamic regime for deliberate neglect in the

    educational sector, and calls for a reform in the religious schooling system as well as

    informing women of their legal rights.

    This thesis also analyses the tension between western human rights laws and a local

    community, where human rights discourse is associated with an imperialistic and colonial

    power.

    Nationalism, subalternity, and the adopted Koreans2007In: Journal of women's history, ISSN 1042-7961, E-ISSN 1527-2036, Vol. 19, no 1, p. 117-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the end of the Korean War in 1953, more than 160,000 Korean children have been adopted to fifteen Western countries. The United States has taken in two thirds, while the rest are spread out in northwestern Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. During recent years, overseas adopted Koreans have increasingly turned up in various Korean popular cultural works including musicals, comics, pop songs, television dramas, and feature films. This article looks specifically at representations of female overseas adoptees in four Korean feature films: Chang Kil-su’s Susanne Brink’s Arirang Ki-duk’s Wild Animals (1997), and Lee Jang-soo’s Love (1999). At the end, the adopted Koreans are conceptualized as subaltern bodies, once commodified and disposable and now deprived of their voices and turned into mute artifacts of patriarchal nationalist ideology. (1991), Park Kwang-su’s Berlin Report (1991), Kim Ki-duk’s Wild Animals (1997), and Lee Jang-soo’s Love (1999). At the end, the adopted Koreans are conceptualized as subaltern bodies, once commodified and disposable and now deprived of their voices and turned into mute artifacts of patriarchal nationalist ideology.

    Adopted Koreans and the development of identity in the "third space"2004In: Adoption & Fostering: Quarterly Journal, ISSN 0308-5759, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 16-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since 1953, 150,000 Korean children have been adopted to 15 main host countries in the West. They constitute the largest international adoptee group worldwide. An adopted Korean movement has existed on an international level since the 1990s and is today trying to formulate an identity and community of its own beyond Western adoption ideology and Korean nationalism. Tobias Hübinette outlines the history of international adoption from Korea, Western and Korean perspectives on international adoption and adopted Koreans, and the emergence of an adopted Korean identity transcending race, citizenship, culture, religion and language in what he terms as the "third space".

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna artikel jämför ett antal koreanska och svenska barn- och ungdomsböcker som behandlar internationell adoption från Korea och adoptivkoreaner. Den första slutsatsen är att de båda ländernas adoptionsgenrer uppstod vid olika tidpunkter. För det andra representerar de koreanska och de svenska barn- och ungdomsböckerna två olika intressen, och en tredje skillnad slutligen är de ideologier som kommer till uttryck i de olika verken. Artikeln avslutas med att konstatera att de båda ländernas adoptionsgenrer på senare år har differentierats och diversifierats.

    Abstract [sv]

    Under några varma och intensiva augustidagar år 2004 samlades över 400 adoptivko-reaner i Sydkoreas huvudstad Seoul för att delta i den tredje International Gathering of Adult Korean Adoptees. Den i huvudsak sociala sammankomsten som inte oväntat fick en enorm uppmärksamhet i den koreanska offentligheten hade föregåtts av två liknan-de arrangemang i Washington D.C. 1999 och i Oslo 2001, och kan sägas utgöra kul-men på framväxten av en organiserad och världsomspännande adoptivkoreansk rörelse som faktiskt tog sina första försiktiga steg i Sverige. I snart två decennier har denna rörelse växt fram organiskt bland de över 150 000 koreaner som under ett halvt sekel adopterats till ett 20-tal olika västländer, och närmast från intet av allt att döma lyckats skapa en stark känsla av samhörighet och gemenskap inom gruppen.

    Asia as a topos of fear and desire2006In: From Orientalism to Postcoloniality, 2006Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The point of departure for this paper is my own finding as an investigative journalist covering Nazism for the Swedish media and as a Ph.D. candidate in Korean Studies belonging to the Swedish Asian Studies community, saying that there is a high preponderance of Nazis and extreme rightists among scholars and writers in Asian Studies of Sweden and in many other Western countries as well. The paper sets out to map and investigate this bizarre but nonetheless unpleasant phenomenon by using Asian Studies of Sweden as the principal empirical evidence together with sporadic information on Asianists in Germany, United States, Denmark, France, Italy among others. After having presented an historical disciplinary overview of Swedish Asian Studies and established the rich frequency of Nazis and extreme rightist political views among Swedish Asianists, the question posed is why Nazis and Extreme Rightists are attracted to Asia in the first place? The paper tries to answer this question by conceptualising Asia as a topos of both fear and desire, either as the Urheimat of the white race and as a continent of once great civilizations worthy of admiration, or as the eternal threat to Western civilization in the forms of the yellow, Jewish, red or green perils which therefore has to be conquered and controlled, and thoroughly explored and researched. The paper ends by pointing out that Asian Studies outside Asia is not just a safe haven and free zone for Nazis and Extreme Rightists, but also a reservation for those who still harbour feelings of colonial romanticism and white supremacy, as it is an elitist community dominated by white males who are married to Asian women, and white females who have adopted Asian children, and who often are characterised by strong desires to go native, consuming orientalist popular culture and appropriating all kinds of other things deemed to be Asian.

    Comforting an orphaned nation: Representations of international adoption and adopted Koreans in Korean popular culture2006Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    International adoption from Korea constitutes the background to this study. The forced migration of Korean children has by now continued for over half a century, resulting in a population of 156,000 overseas adopted Koreans dispersed among 15 main host countries on the continents of Europe, North America and Australia. Both the demographic scope, the time span and the geographic spread are absolutely unique from a comparative child migratory perspective, and still over 2,000 children leave Korea annually for international adoption. This massive intercontinental trafficking of Korean children was for many years silently taking place in the shadow of Korea’s rapid transformation from a war-torn and poverty-stricken country to a formidable success story in the postcolonial world. Even if the subject of international adoption and adopted Koreans turned up now and then in the political debate throughout the years, it was not until the end of the 1980s that a comprehensive discussion started. Ever since then the adoption issue has been haunting Korea, from the mid-1950s and up to the mid-1990s the leading global exporter of children and by far the country in the world having sent away the highest number of its own citizens for international adoption in modern history. This is a study of representations of adopted Koreans in Korean popular culture. The study is carried out by examining how adopted Koreans are represented in four feature films and four popular songs. After having given the cultural background to adoption in Korean tradition, the history of international adoption from Korea, an account of the development of the adoption issue in the political discourse and the appearance of adopted Koreans in Korean popular culture, the first reading takes up the gendering of the colonised nation and the maternalisation of roots in Chang Kil-su’s film Susanne Brink’s Arirang (1991) and Sinawe’s song Motherland (1997), drawing on theories of nationalism as a gendered discourse. The second reading examines the issue of hybridity and the relationship between Koreanness and Whiteness in Kim Ki-duk’s film Wild Animals (1997) and Moon Hee Jun’s song Alone (2001), including its album cover, related to the notions of third space, mimicry and passing. Linked to studies of national division, reunification and family separation, the third reading looks at the adopted Koreans as symbols of a fractured and fragmented nation in Park Kwang-su’s film Berlin Report (1991) and Clon’s song Abandoned Child (1999). The fourth and last reading focuses on the emergence of a global Korean community in Lee Jang-soo’s film Love (1999) and Sky’s song Eternity (1999), including its music video, with regards to theories of globalisation, diasporas and transnationalism. At the end, the study argues that the Korean adoption issue can be interpreted as a national trauma threatening to disrupt the unity and homogeneity of the Korean nation and to question the country’s political independence and economic success story that is so valorised in the master narrative of the nation.

    Abstract [en]

    International adoption, sometimes known as intercountry or transnational adoption, the movement of mainly non-white children from the postcolonial so-called “Third World” to predominantly white adopters in North America, Northern and Western Europe, and Australia and New Zealand, was born in the mid-1950s in the aftermath of the Korean War. This huge child migration which today involves close to 30,000 children annually, has transferred an estimated half a million children, of whom almost one third come from Korea. In the receiving countries, the practice was initiated as a rescue mission with strong Christian undertones, while it came to be perceived as a progressive act of solidarity during the 1960s and 1970s. Today, in the leading adopting regions of North America, Western Europe, and Oceania, international adoption has developed into the last resort for many suffering from infertility, while a discourse of multiculturalism celebrates international adoptees as bridges between cultures, symbols of interethnic harmony, and embodiments of global and postmodern cosmopolitans. Academically, studies of international adoption are usually limited to the fields of medicine and psychiatry, or to social work and psychology. At the other end in the sending countries, the governments conceive of international adoption as part family planning method and part child welfare practice. Despite regular outbursts of criticism towards the practice coming from domestic oppositional circles in the countries of origin, most governments treat international adoption as a necessary evil, even though they consider it a degrading and humiliating business, well aware that the practice saves social welfare expenditure and generates huge amounts of money for a profitable adoption industry.

    Instead of following in the footsteps of these dominant ways of looking at international adoption and merely reproducing mainstream adoption research, I will examine and analyze the practice from a different perspective, employing the lenses of anthropology and migration history, American empire building and international relations, and Korean military authoritarianism and patriarchal modernity. I will use international adoption from Korea as the principal case study, as Korea has by far provided the most internationally adopted children, and since the practice itself was initiated in connection with the Korean War. International adoption will be put in relation to a particular Western mode of adopting, and to other previous and contemporary child and forced migrations, and set within the context of emerging American world dominance after World War II. At the other end, international adoption will be connected to Korea’s modernization process, and seen as a disciplining method of regulating and controlling women’s bodies and reproduction in the name of social engineering and development. Lastly, I am arguing that to fully understand international adoption’s history and current articulation, it is necessary to study it from many different angles and perspectives.
