Abstract [sv]

Vilhelm Scharp (1896–1978) var litteraturvetare och historiker, lektor i Berlin 1928–1936 och därefter verksam vid Sveaplans läroverk. Han ingick i gruppen kring tidskriften Spektrum och rörde sig i litterära och intellektuella kretsar i både Sverige och Berlin. Under andra världskriget var Scharp aktiv i de antinazistiska sammanslutningarna Tisdagsklubben och Nordens frihet. Efter kriget arbetade han för demokratiseringen av det besegrade Tyskland och med att sprida kunskap om nazismen i Sverige.

Den här boken är en utgåva av ett manuskript med samlade minnen och tidningsessäer från Vilhelm Scharps resor i mellankrigstidens Europa och hans tid som lektor i Berlin. Av okänd anledning gavs boken aldrig ut under 1940-talet som planerat. Istället donerades en kopiaav manuskriptet till Kungliga biblioteket 1969. Endast den inledande essän är tidigare utgiven i bokform under namnet Tavernan. Här publiceras Scharps manuskript i sin helhet samt ytterligare två texter ur hans efterlämnade papper.

Abstract [en]

After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 Sweden set aside large sums for development assistance for the neighboring countries around the Baltic Sea as a part of the general European assistance to Eastern Europe. The Swedish Public Diplomacy institution, the Swedish Institute (SI), was assigned the task to carry out large scholarship programs for the region, larger than the Institute had ever handled before. This turn towards Eastern Europe was the start for a change in the focus of Swedish Public Diplomacy in general which in turn led to a restructuring of the Institute. The article investigates this development on two levels. First of all it traces the different political motives behind the post-1990 exchange programs in order to explain which role academic exchange with Sweden was supposed to play within the Eastern European postcommunist transition. Secondly it investigates what this politically motivated Swedish interest in Eastern Europe has meant for the Swedish Institute as an organization and for contemporary Swedish public diplomacy in general.

Abstract [en]

This article analyses the teaching of Swedish language lecturers active in Germany during the first half of the twentieth century. It shows the centrality of literature and literary constructions and analyses images of Swedishness and the Swedish nation present in the teaching material of that time in relation to the national image present in Swedish schoolbooks. The importance of language teaching to the transfer of knowledge regarding foreign countries is also discussed, in this case the knowledge and images of Sweden that were transferred to German students via their lecturers.

Abstract [en]

The article investigates the financial basis of state-sponsored international academic exchange through the Swedish Institute (SI). Founded in 1945 the SI is the main institution for Swedish public diplomacy and is as such part of modern foreign policy and Swedish soft power. This article maps the changing sources of funding as well as the sums spent on academic exchange from 1945–2010. It also discusses the various forms of exchange programs and gives an overview of the ideas behind and arguments for such programs. The overall picture is that state-sponsored exchange after 1945 has expanded. Not only has more and more money been spent on exchange, which led to an increase in the number of persons benefitted, but there has also been a diversification in exchange schemes towards parallel programs, each designed to fulfill a certain task. Though they fund different parts of the SI exchange scheme, the main sources of funding, however, have remained the same: the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, various development assistance agencies and programs as well as the Ministry for Education.

Abstract [en]

The importance of philanthropy for academic exchange cannot be overestimated. Especially in the first half of the twentieth century, scholarships for academic exchange originated from the private sector instead of the state. But what is the relationship between academic exchange and the donations which finance scholarships? How can specific donations and the restrictions placed on them change the flow of exchange? This article investigates donation and scholarship praxis within the American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF) from 1912–1995, a philanthropic organisation devoted to academic exchange between Scandinavia and the United States. The period, 1912–1944, is characterised by various small donations and few scholarships to mostly American fellows. The second period, 1945–1995, represents an era of economic growth created from a surge in large, restricted donations invested in scholarship funds. This led to an increased number of scholarships to a more geographically diverse population.
