    Panoramic visions: Sven Hedin in ’Transhimalaya’ 1906-19092018In: The power of the In-between: Intermediality as a tool for Aesthetics Analysis and Critical Reflection / [ed] Sonya Petersson; Christer Johansson; Magdalena Holdar; Sara Callahan, Stockholm: Stockholm University Press, 2018, p. 185-212Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter studies the panoramic visions created by Swedish geographer Sven Hedin on a journey to Tibet between 1906 and 1909. It reads Hedin’s geographic images and texts through a broader nineteenth-century history of the panorama and indicates how his panoramic visions were part of a broader media culture of the century. Furthermore, the chapter claims that Hedin’s geographic images and texts contributed to the shaping of a modern regime of vision where the world in overview was a desirable object. Using intermediality as a method, I display how these visions emerged through a network of media formats, including photographs, hand-drawn panoramas, water-colour sketches, and texts. The article argues that these formats were combined through “descriptive layering.” They shared the panorama as a motif, yet they were also layered in a material sense: attached to, and interlaced with, each other. I argue that descriptive layering was a way of handling the vexed relationship between overview and detail, and it allowed the panoramic representations to move between knowledge-based and aesthetic experiences.

    Svensk snillrikhet? Nationella föreställningar om entreprenörer och teknisk begåvning 1800-20002014Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppfinningsrikedom och entreprenörsanda beskrivs ofta som svenska paradgrenar. Innovatörerna har blivit nationsbärare och symboler för varumärket Sverige i en samling idéer med djupa historiska rötter. Media, politik och industri har bidragit till att etablera tankegångarna som odiskutabla sanningar.

    I Svensk snillrikhet? belyser forskare från olika discipliner hur personer som Gustaf Dalén och Alfred Nobel, eller företag som Volvo, framställts i stereotypa framgångsberättelser som skapat föreställningar om svensk fallenhet för teknik. Författarna blottlägger en vurm för det manliga geniet och en bergfast tro på tekniska framsteg. Den kombinationen har bidragit till en förenklad bild av nationen Sverige – dess modernisering, invånare och framtid. En bild som lever och ständigt reproduceras.

    Författarna sätter in aktörerna i idéhistoriska, politiska och ekonomiska sammanhang och visar hur idéerna använts i politiska syften. Snillet, innovatören och entreprenören blir förebilder i debatter om allt ifrån skolfostran av barn och lanseringar av akademiska initiativ till satsningar på teknikdrivna företag.

    Konsten att kontextualisera: Om historisk förståelse och meningsskapande2022Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna bok handlar om historievetenskaperna sätt att producera kunskap genom att kontextualisera. Den vänder sig primärt till studenter och forskare inom de humanistiska discipliner som arbetar med historiska perspektiv. Bokens ambition är ta med läsaren in i själva görandet och visa hur kontextualisering är ett viktigt moment i historiska studier på alla nivåer. Boken hoppas därmed stimulera till ökad reflektion och diskussion om hur vi går till väga när vi tolkar, skapar eller omtolkar historiska, kulturella och samhälleliga sammanhang.

    "Må de herrskande klasserna darra": Radikal retorik och reaktion i Stockholms press, 1848-18512020Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation explores the formation of the modern historiography of class in mid-nineteenth century Sweden by analyzing constitutive rhetoric of class in the Stockholm press from 1848 to 1851. The aim is to study how disparaged workers during the February Revolution in France began to be ascribed a new kind of unified agency, and how workers in Stockholm became recipients of mobilizing appeals from all parts of the political spectrum. To this end the dissertation examines periodical papers representing the three major political positions of the period, i.e. a royalist conservative press, liberal papers in opposition, and a newly emerging socialist press. How were workers described, invoked and addressed as a new kind of community of political interest and action in these publications?

    Refuting perspectives of socio-economic determinism, this study adopts a conception of belonging and agency that views political communities as discursively produced by the creation of subject positions and the interpellation of individuals to them. The study is also influenced by recent re-evaluations of the category of the event associated with poststructuralism, and analyzes operations of constitutive rhetoric in forming a new symbolic field of class identity and agency in an open-ended and multivalent historical situation.

    The analysis shows how workers were construed as political agents in the Stockholm press during the mid-nineteenth century turmoil by being described, invoked and addressed within the framework of four main rival narratives. The socialist press tried to evoke a self-organizing working class within a collectivist narrative of labour’s liberation and universal male suffrage. The liberal press interpellated workers to a position aligned with the reformist middle class within a narrative of individual self-determination and gradual improvement. The royalist narrative of reconciliation was aimed at separating the large mass of workers from socialist and communist ideologues, deemed as mischievous outsiders, while at the same time offering them a new-found and prominent role as protectors of social harmony and peace. Only within the royalist narrative of catastrophe were the workers continuously excluded from mobilizing appeals, instead being invoked as the harbingers of an approaching communist revolution, against which all other sections of society should unite.

    Pfeifer, Helen. Empire of salons: conquest and community in earlymodern Ottoman lands2023In: ChoiceReviews, ISSN 0009-4978, Vol. 60, no 8, p. 821-821Article, book review (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The recalibration of the Ottoman Empire after the retreat of the Timurids has been recognized as a process initiated by the expansion of a state bureaucracy working at the behest of the sultan. In her excellent first book, Pfeifer (Univ. of Cambridge, UK) upsets this claim that the Ottoman Empire of the 16th century was the product of a centralizing state. At the heart of a dynamic process that successfully integrated the previously independent Syrian lands into the Ottoman bureaucracy was the gentlemanly salon. As arenas where men of status in Syrian society debated the politics of their time, literary salons, as Pfeifer argues, were intellectually critical to the long-term success of this imperial enterprise. Moreover, upon looking at the role Syrian scholar Badr al-Din al-Ghazzi (d. 1577) played in 16th-century Damascus, Pfeifer convincingly demonstrates that the empire’s political stability depended on the interactions taking place in explicitly intellectual and artistic circles based in faraway Syria. These so-called laboratories of Ottoman culture, society, and politics that accommodated men such as al-Ghazzi helped integrate the Arab-speaking regions into an Ottoman regime once thought to exist centrally in faraway, Turkish-speaking Istanbul. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Advanced undergraduates through faculty.

    Kyrkan som instrument: Arthur Engberg och den socialdemokratiska kyrkopolitiken 1918–19392022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to address a period in Swedish political history when the politicization of the Church of Sweden was formed, a politicization that still exist. How this period came about is viewed through the writings and speeches of an important member of the Social democratic party, Arthur Engberg, who became Minister of Education and Religion in the first Swedish social democratic government in 1932.

    Prior to being a minister, Engberg first argued to immediately separate the church from the state. Later, he argued that the church first must be reformed by the state before the separation can take place. The question addressed in the study is, if Engberg continued his efforts as a minister, 1932­–1939, or if he instead, as some implies, aligned with the church? The most authoritative literature when studying Engberg is Beltzén Arthur Engberg – publicist och politiker (Arthur Engberg – publicist and politician) from 1973 which suggest that he did follow his early intensions. This is however contradicted by a contemporary prominent party member, Rickard Lindström in an article in Tiden 1946.

    The method applied to study this question was to research Engberg’s writings and speeches in a chronological order and to put them into context with the parallel processes of the formation of the Christian Socialist Group and with the internal reformation of the church. 

    The conclusions drawn by the study is that Engberg became a defender of the church as the cultural institution he wanted it to be. He had come to realize that the church could be accepted and even useful for managing the religious matter of the state. As such it must be controlled by the state and a separation between state and church is not necessary in the foreseeable future.

    Natural selection and multiple realisation: A closer look2013In: International Studies in the Philosophy of Science, ISSN 0269-8595, E-ISSN 1469-9281, I, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 73-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The target of this paper is the claim that natural selection accounts for the multiple realisation of biological and psychological kinds. I argue that the explanation actually offered doesn’t provide any insight about the phenomenon since it presupposes multiple realisation as an unexplained premise, and this is what does all the work. The purported explanation mistakenly invokes the “indifference” of selection to structure as an additional explanatorily relevant factor. While such indifference can be explanatory in intentional contexts it isn’t a causal factor at all in non-intentional nature. The upshot is that once the necessary initial assumption about heterogeneity is accepted there is no further explanation to do.

    Politik i sak: C.J.L. Almqvists samhällstänkande 1839-18512005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis concerns the political ideas of the Swedish author, journalist and thinker Carl Jonas Love Almqvist (1793–1866). The main source material consists of his theoretical works and the slightly more than 700 articles that he wrote for newspapers such as Aftonbladet and Jönköpingsbladet between 1839 and 1851. The study consists of an introduction and ten chapters dealing with various aspects of Almqvist’s political thinking, among them his view of man, history, religion and educational policy as well as his commitment to the Scandinavist movement and his standpoint in the question of the Swedish representative system.

    The dissertation shows that Almqvist had well-reasoned ideas in all these areas and that he argued from a liberal point of view throughout. He was a political reformist who emphasized individualism, freedom and tolerance. He also had confidence in man’s ability to decide his own destiny and a negative attitude towards the old privilege society and all kinds of institutions regarded as irrational. In addition, he believed that society becomes more and more democratic and that in the long run all adults, even women, servants and unpropertied, should become citizens with political rights, even if it was still not time for a truly democratic system. So even if Almqvist had an ideal of a consistent democracy with universal suffrage, he did not consider the society of his day to be ready for such a reform. First, the people have to raise their level of political awareness and learn what a democratic form of government really implies. In that process the educational system, the press and political associations may have an important function.

    Almqvist always tried to combine his utopian visions with concrete reform proposals. He did not only dream of a utopian society; he also tried to show some possible paths towards attaining that society. Besides the utopian feature in his political thinking, there is an unmistakable striving after concreteness and a desire to exert an influence on the contemporary society.

    Demokratin och det politiska: Essäer om samtidens politiska tillstånd2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Enligt många bedömare befinner sig den liberala, parlamentariska demokratin i en allvarlig kris, en världsomspännande, accelererande kris som tar sig skilda uttryck på olika platser men som i ett eller annat avseende kan kopplas samman med högerpopulismens, radikalnationalismens och den auktoritära nykonservatismens framgångar under det senaste decenniet.

    Mot den bakgrunden resonerar författarna i denna antologi kring demokratins status idag och vilka möjligheter som finns för dess vitalisering. Utifrån skilda perspektiv presenteras ett antal teoretiska interventioner och reflektioner om demokratins villkor och samtidens politiska tillstånd.

    Abstract [en]

    In the fall of 1897, in Sweden, Strindberg was publicly accused of having plagiarized Huysmans. This article strives to investigate the case by studying the biographical sources and the religious ideas expressed in the novels Inferno (1897), Legends (1898) and En Route (1895), and by recontextualizing both writers’ works in the fin de siècle mysticism period. Thanks to an intertextual approach, we examine different points where Strindberg and Huysmans meet, as far as their religious imaginary is concerned, namely, the notions of divine compassion and redemptive suffering.

    A Divine King Excommunicated: Legitimisation of Power and Ideology of Kingship in Sverris Saga

    This article investigates how Sverrir Sigurðarson, ruler of Norway between 1177 and 1202, is ideologically legitimised as king in the biography Sverris saga. In previous research, the perception that Sverrir is portrayed as a Christian rex iustus has competed with the perception that Sverrir is depicted as a traditional Old Norse warrior king, who gains his legitimacy through his military successes. This article demonstrates that the rex iustus idea is central in the saga when it comes to legitimising Sverrir, and that his seizure of power is also placed in the salvation-historical worldview of the time. Fully in accordance with the way contemporary continental European kings legitimised their claims to power, Sverrir’s royal power is justified in the saga through a combination of the notion that God has chosen Sverrir as king and the notion of a line of succession to the throne through paternal blood ties. The article also demonstrates that the saga, like the polemic pamphlet A Speech against the Bishops (Ett tal mot biskoparna), propagates against the perception that the Church is above the royal power and dismisses the Church’s excommunication of Sverrir as unjust and invalid.

    Abstract [sv]

    I det traditionella norröna samhället var en god kung detsamma som en framgångsrik kung. Det var framgången som legitimerade rätten till tronen. När kungamakten institutionaliserades förändrades kraven som ställdes på kungen. En religiös legitimitet för maktutövningen blev nödvändig, representerad i den rex iustus-doktrin som gjorde sitt intåg genom integrationen med det kristna Europa.

    Sverrir Sigurðarson († 1202) gjorde anspråk på den norska kronan under vad som måste betecknas som övergångsskedet mellan den gamla och nya kungaideologin. Den nästan samtida biografin över honom, Sverris saga, ger ett unikt porträtt av ett medeltida härskarliv, som möjliggör en analys av den ideologi som hans maktanspråk legitimeras genom. Sverre Bagge har i sin tongivande forskning menat att sagan legitimerar Sverrir genom hans framgångar på slagfältet. Med andra ord menar Bagge att sagan präglas av främst traditionell norrön kungaideologi. I mitt paper kommer jag att diskutera den uppfattningen med utgångspunkt från att forskare som Aron J. Gurevich, Ludvig Holm-Olsen, Halvdan Koht och Gerhard Loescher inte har delat Bagges uppfattning, utan istället framhållit den religiösa retorikens betydelse för legitimitetsskapandet.

    Ideologin i Sverris saga uttalas sällan direkt, utan måste istället sökas såväl i dialoger, tal och drömmar som i beskrivningen av kungen och hans handlande. Jag syftar i mitt paper till att utreda och åtskilja vilka element i Sverris saga som bör kopplas till ett traditionellt norrönt kungaideal, respektive vilka som bör kopplas till rex iustus-doktrinen. På det viset vill jag kunna nå ett steg längre än i tidigare forskning när det gäller att fastslå i vilken utsträckning de bägge kungaideologierna finns företrädda i sagan. En sak som jag vill lägga särskild vikt vid är om sätten, som Sverrirs rätt till tronen legitimeras på i sagan, förändras sedan han har blivit bannlyst av påven.

    Unsettling History: How an Egyptian Conspiracy Theory Turns Time into Place2023In: Theory Conspiracy / [ed] Frida Beckman; Jeffrey Di Leo, Routledge, 2023, p. 41-62Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As Matthew Gray shows, the conspiracy theories that spread, from below, in the Arab world often stem from a gap between state and society. This may result in an attempt of some citizens to deconstruct history beyond official narratives, thus empowering themselves as masters of the interpretation of the past.

    This chapter investigates a conspiracy theory linked to Egyptian history. At its core, we find the case of Rayyā and Sakīna, a criminal case of 1920–1921, still presents in the Egyptian collective memory. In recent years, both cultural actors and ordinary citizens have presented conspiracist interpretations of the case, turning the criminal myth into a bandit myth.

    The common feature of such revisionist attempts is a distrust of historical research and written documents. Strong emphasis is put on pictures, yet visual sources, deprived of context, become a tool to elicit emotional reactions, instead of being investigated as archival pieces. In parallel, bloggers and journalists frantically search for eyewitnesses. The acknowledgment of the impossibility of finding any, after one century, does not restore the legitimacy of historical research. In their quest for authenticity, these actors switch from time to place. They go to visit the Alexandrian district where the crimes once occurred, taking some “elderly people” – 70-year-old men – as truth keepers of a case that was closed before they were even born.

    Through social media, official media, and fieldwork sources, this paper seeks to investigate what conspiracy theories do to history as a discipline and, ultimately, to its pretention to scientific truth.

    Geniets patologi: En studie i 1800-talsmedicinens genibegrepp2015In: Lychnos, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 53-89Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the mid-nineteenth century, the ancient notion that genius is a form of insanity suddenly became the topic of intense medical interest. Beginning with the French physician Lélut’s 1836 study of Socrates, Du démon de Socrate, a number of prominent nineteenth century doctors developed theories that sought to explain genius with reference to various medical conditions. The most important and controversial of these theories was Cesare Lombroso’s attempt in L’uomo di genio (1888) to show that genius, just like the innate tendency to commit crime that he claimed to observe in the majority of the criminals, was a form of masked epilepsy. Lombroso’s opponents, in particular the followers of the French Lyon school, developed an alternative theory according to which genius was a higher form of reason and a future, more highly developed form of human appearing in advance. The paper seeks to demonstrate that the medical theories of genius were in fact an important scientific topic in the late nineteenth century. It aims to show that Lombroso’s notion that genius was a positive counterpart to the born criminal, whose intuitive insights can be put to use by science and solve the very problems that the born criminal causes, meant that the theories on genius were in fact an aspect of criminal anthropology that was much more important than the previous research has noted.
