    Expectations, claims, interests and the making of future Arctic territory2018In: Uncertain futures:: imaginaries, narratives, and calculation in the economy / [ed] Jens Beckert; Richard Bronk, London: Oxford University Press, 2018, p. 83-103Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Uncertain Futures considers how economic actors visualize the future and decide how to act in conditions of radical uncertainty. It starts from the premise that since dynamic capitalist economies are characterized by relentless innovation and novelty, they exhibit an indeterminacy that cannot be reduced to measurable risk. The organizing question then becomes how economic actors form expectations and make decisions despite the uncertainty they face. The current microfoundations of standard economics cannot handle genuinely uncertain futures. Instead, uncertainty requires an entirely new model of economic reasoning. This edited volume helps lay foundations for this new model by showing how economic actors in practice form expectations in conditions of uncertainty. It draws on groundbreaking research in economic sociology, economics, anthropology, and psychology to present theoretically grounded empirical case studies that demonstrate the role of imaginaries, narratives, and calculative technologies—and their various combinations—in enabling economic actors to form expectations and cope with uncertain futures. The book examines risk management techniques, finance models, and discounted cash-flow models as well as methods of envisaging the future that overtly combine calculation with narrative structure and imaginaries. These include central bank forward guidance, economic forecasts, business plans, visions of technological futures, and new era stories. Considerable attention is given to how these fictional expectations influence actors’ behaviour, coordinate action, and provide the confidence to act, and how they become instruments of power in markets and societies. The market impact of shared calculative devices, social narratives, and contingent imaginaries underlines the rationale for a new form of narrative economics.

    The influence of particle size and structure in hydrated lime on the properties of the lime putty and lime mortar2010In: International journal of architectural heritage, ISSN 1558-3058, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 86-101Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis of lime slaked in different ways and analysis of thin section of lime putty and mortar specimens by light microscopy was combined with practical tests and field studies to evaluate the impact of the slaking technique on the properties of the lime putty as well as the structure of the fresh and carbonated mortar. The lime slaking methods studied were wet slaking and earth slaking, giving lime putties with very different consistency and workability. The aim of this work was to use microscopy techniques to explain these differences in properties and to investigate if it is possible to use these analytical methods to recognize the lime-slaking technique used in a historical lime mortar. The results obtained by SEM show significant differences in structure between the lime putties. The earth-slaked lime consists of relatively large particles that are packed in a porous system compared with the wet-slaked lime with very small particles closely packed in a dense structure. After storing, the wet-slaked lime gives a putty that has a dense and clearly defined stratified structure, whereas the earth-slaked lime is porous and has no stratification.

    Modernizing the flow of blood: Biomedical technicians, working knowledge and the transformation of Swedish blood centre practices2017In: Social Studies of Science, ISSN 0306-3127, E-ISSN 1460-3659, Vol. 47, no 4, p. 485-510Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The early 1980s saw a paradigm change' in how donated blood was handled and used by blood centres, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. In Sweden, a five-year state-financed R&D programme initiated a swift modernization process, an alleged revolution' of existing blood centre practices. In this article, we use interviews and archival material to analyse the role of female biomedical technicians in this rapid technical and organizational change. In focus is their working knowledge, or savoir-faire, of blood, instruments and techniques. We give a detailed analysis of technicians' embrained and embodied skills to create safety in blood and its representations, handle contingencies and invent new procedures and techniques. These transformations are analysed as sociomaterial entanglements, where the doing and undoing of gender, sociomaterial practices, hierarchies of authority and expertise, and emotions are intertwined.

    The relationship between heating energy and cumulative damage to painted wood in historic churches2014In: Journal of the Institute of Conservation, no 3, p. 94-109Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Existing research on climate-induced damage needs to be verified by actual observations in authentic environments. This article suggests a complementary method to relate the historic and present indoor climate to damage on painted wooden objects in historic churches. Energy consumption, as revealed by archival sources, is used as a substitute for climate records, on the assumption that higher temperature and therefore lower relative humidity will occur more frequently in churches with greater expenses for fuel. The quantified energy consumption is related to damage of wood and the painted layers of pulpits in 16 churches. There is a slight correlation between damage to the paint on the pulpits and energy released in the churches. However larger populations are needed for this type of enquiry to be further developed and extended.

    Quantification, the link to relate climate-induced damage to indoor environments in historic buildings2013In: Climate for collections: Standards and uncertainties: Postprints of the Munich Climate Conference 7 to 9 November 2012 / [ed] Jonathan Ashley-Smith, Andreas Burmester and Melanie Eibl, 2013, p. 311-323Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes and applies a method to quantify and related damage of painted wooden pulpits in 16 churches in Gotland, Sweden, to both the current and the historical indoor climate of the twentieth century. In addition, it demonstrates that the energy used to heat a church in the past can be measured and the study alsopoints towards a relationship between damage and heat output. The results suggest that more damage is present in churches with a higher heat output and there is increased damage in churches using background heating compared to churches that do not. However, the method needs to be improved and a larger population is required to validate these results.

    Technomedical Visions: Magnetic Resonance Imaging in 1980s Sweden2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The medical imaging technology called MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) stems from a blind measurement technology which was further developed in research and practice to enable seeing into the inner body. Vision with MRI was open-ended, and it was developed and tamed in a context of fragmented medical perspectives on the body and on technology. "Technomedical Visions" addresses the formation of MRI’s specific visualities in the first decade of its introduction in Sweden.

    The purpose of this dissertation is to explore how vision with MRI has been constructed in practice in relation to existing ways of knowing the body within medicine. Dussauge investigates first the early decisions that led to a national evaluation of MRI technology in the mid-1980s in Sweden. Then she addresses the shaping of MRI’s quantitative visuality in the practices of radiology, psychiatry and the laboratory, with focus on microhistories at St. Göran’s Hospital, Karolinska Institutet, Uppsala University Hospital, and Lund University.

    Dussauge shows that whereas authorities’ early decisions momentarily defined MRI as a radiological tool for immediate clinical use and evaluation, a crucial part of MRI’s introduction was the work conducted by MRI-users. These researchers from a range of scientific and medical disciplines performed, over time, a multitude of shapings of MRI’s vision. This studies shows how MRI was made congruent with existing technomedical gazes. The novel MRI gaze was made intelligible within cross-referential networks, and researchers reproduced technomedicine’s existing gazes both in the production, optimization and interpretation of MRI representations.

    Technomedical time frames, epistemologies and definitions of the normal and the pathological were reproduced and sometimes, re-cast, in the shaping of MRI in practice. This study also demonstrates that anatomy recurrently worked as an underlying frame for the exploration and production of MRI visions. Anatomy’s material visuality provided a site for the production of novel facts at the intersection of existing gazes. Through the practices of shaping MRI gazes, anatomy was systematically remediated, reproduced and reconfigured.

    Seeking adventure and authenticity: Swedish bicycle touring in Europe during the interwar period2017In: Journal of Tourism History, ISSN 1755-182X, E-ISSN 1755-1838, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 44-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how young Swedes travelled Europe by bicycle during the interwar period, utilising their travelogues as primary source. Notwithstanding their often limited literary qualities, these accounts offer a valuable tool for capturing peoples' experiences, motivations, and practices. The article challenges sequential understandings of mobility and instead frames different mobility practices as co-existing but under constant reconfiguration. As car driving emerged and grew, cycling never disappeared, but changed as a practice under the influence of automobility. The pursuit and enjoyment of adventure remained central to cycling in the interwar period - although those involved came from new social groups. The framing of bicycling as an authentic activity even grew stronger. At the same time, cycle touring was reinterpreted as a less comfortable and convenient mode in relation to the competing but still only emergent practice of car touring. Meanwhile, infrastructures were recast to the benefit of motor-powered vehicles. The transformation of roads acted as a catalyst in the reconfiguration between cycling and driving.

    Kärnkraft - säkerhetsrisk eller energitillgång?: Energipolitisk opinionsbildning inför folkomröstningen 19802014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen syftar till att analysera politiska aktörers agerande för att framställa sin hållning inför folkomröstningen om kärnraften 1980 som trovärdig och rationell. Studien undersöker historiska källor i form av informationstätt opinionsmaterial samt statliga utredningar och propositioner med anknytning till folkomröstningen. Undersökningen är baserad på den teoribildning inom teknik- och vetenskapssociologi som kallas science and technology studies – STS. Det analytiska verktyg som källmaterialet analyseras utifrån är begreppet energisäkerhet. Undersökningen visar att en stor del av debatten som förs i opinionsmaterialet kan förklaras i termer av energisäkerhet. Aktörernas argumentation angående kärnkraften och de alternativa energikällornas fördelar och nackdelar tydliggörs och förklaras. Dessutom visar studien hur opinionsmaterialet förhåller sig till de av staten framtagna beslutsunderlagen.

    Kvarnverk på Gotland: en teknikhistorisk jämförande undersökning av kvarnverk i hättkvarnar av trä på Gotland2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    An inventory in the early 1970’s showed the existence of 255 windmills (100 postmills, 155 cap-mills) on the Swedish island of Gotland, in varying condition. An inventory of small scale industry on the island in 2001 confirmed the number roughly. These inventories focused on the exteriors and overlooked the interiors. Many of these windmills now rot away, some are being altered and many have been turned into summer houses. Neither Länsstyrelsen Gotlands län (the county administrative board) nor Region Gotland (the local authority) have at present any plan for the windmills.

    The awareness and knowledge of the machinery in these windmills is evidently small, and this unawareness or ignorance may lead to an involuntary disinterest, not least among decision-makers, to the effect that valuable documentation for the posterity is not being accomplished, and naturally also that many machineries are lost – for ever. We and our descendants then lose knowledge of our past, of different historical expressions of technique-history from different periods and regions. Perhaps a smaller amount of examples will remain to speak to us from the past and say: “This is how it was”, but reality was more diversified.

    Since the research in windmills on Gotland is neglected, we don’t even know who built them, while in other places names of millwrights or millwright families are known. We have here a craftsmanship of centuries-old tradition, even a neglected profession, whose expressions in craftsmanship culminated in the 19th century, the century in which most of the windmills in this survey were built.

    This unawareness or ignorance of the windmill machinery may lead to the thought or the notion that the interior of a windmill is just “one thing and nothing else”, which in turn leads to the thought or the decision-making, that it will be enough to preserve just a small amount of chosen windmills for the posterity, which will stand there and tell the onlookers: “This is how it was”, but if a new thought manages to be established, that it isn’t just “one thing and nothing else”, but “many different expressions, no windmill machinery resembles another”, then the preservation problems immediately become more complex, and that is the new thought the author would like to establish among different kinds of readers.

    The author have documented the nineteen remaining wooden cap-mills on Gotland (twelve of which were judged had enough of and sufficiently preserved machinery to take part in the survey) with the aim to provide a lucid and comparative picture of what technique-historical expressions and values there are in the machineries, expressions and values which heretofore have not been given their due attention. The parts of the windmill machineries which are dealt with are: brake wheels, spur wheels, brake wheel wallowers, spur wheel wallowers, brakes and the meeting between the millhouse and the cap.

    The survey shows an existing variety in the windmills and their machineries, that these mill interiors are not just “one thing and nothing else”, but rather “many different expressions, no windmill machinery resembles another”. The survey also shows different expressions in time when it comes to material and construction, and a technical development has thus been traced, for example with the entry of cast iron at the end of the 19th century.

    Träslag i kvarnar: En träslagsundersökning av kvarnverken i väderkvarnarna i Eksta socken, Gotland2014Student paper second term, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The current knowledge of what types of woods there are in the different parts of the Gotland windmill machinery are based on unsatisfactory verbal information. The author has therefore himself taken in total 59 wood samples from seven windmills in the parish of Eksta, Gotland, and through microscope analysis tried to identify the types of woods. The results gave four different types of woods (pine, oak, Swedish whitebeam and birch) for in total nine parts. The author discusses probable reasons to why just those types of woods were chosen to just those parts. The results can be considered (more or less) representative for the whole island. The results have furthermore been compared with information from Gotland, Öland and Dagö (Estonia). One interesting discrepancy was observed: those parts (the cogs and the wallower’s staves) which on Öland and on Gotland are made from Swedish whitebeam (with the exception birch), are on Dagö made from ash or apple tree. Other parts accord (more or less). The author relates this with a theory of the Estonian Dan Lukas, and the drift of that theory is that the Estonian type of windmill came there from the south by way over Gotland. If this theory would be true, there is reason to expect great similarities between the islands when it comes to selection of types of woods. The reason why the cogs and the wallower’s staves on Dagö are made from ash or apple tree, unlike on Öland and on Gotland where they are made from Swedish whitebeam (and in a few cases from birch), can be that only isolated finds of Swedish whitebeam have been found there or that Swedish whitebeam didn’t grow there at all during the time when the windmills were built, while Swedish whitebeam is common on Gotland and less common on Öland.

    The author’s hope is that the results of the investigation will be able to serve a practical purpose for local antiquarians and windmill owners on the island during restauration work, in case a wish would be existent to replace or recreate damaged parts in an “antiquarian correct” way, with regards to the choice of the material.

    Abstract [en]

    Universities around the world have increasingly turned to digital infrastructures as a way to revamp the arts and humanities. This article contributes a fresh understanding by examining the material development of HumlabX, a research laboratory for digital humanities at Umeå University, Sweden. Specifically, we approach the empirical case as a timeline of research funding, projects, events, and deliverables to examine how the research laboratory as an organizational and material space developed and evolved in relation to new technology investments. Based on our analysis, we argue that while digital research infrastructures can, indeed, stimulate innovation in and around research, aimed to produce new knowledge, digital technologies carry social and material implications that affect organizational processes. We show that while knowledge production processes at HumlabX were highly influenced by the infrastructural legacy of the past, they indeed directed scholars toward innovation. By discussing these implications in detail, we move beyond the debate of humanities qua digital, and demonstrate the need for scholars of digital humanities to engage in the development of policies for digital research infrastructures. Using a Swedish case study, we argue that research laboratories for the digital humanities must be scrutinized and should be fully exposed as socio-material organizations that develop, and should develop, over time. In particular, we stress the need to ensure that digital humanities laboratories are sustainable and open for redevelopment.

    Introduction to the DHQ Special Issue: Digital Technology in the Study of the Past2018In: Digital Humanities Quarterly, ISSN 1938-4122, E-ISSN 1938-4122, Vol. 12, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital technology is transforming the assemblage and dissemination of historical information. Museums, libraries, archives, and universities increasingly modify their digital research infrastructures in order to make data open and available (see [Crane, Seales, and Terras 2009]; [Smithies 2014]; [Terras, Nyhan, and Vanhoutte 2013]; cf [Foka et al. 2017]). The imminent assessment and representation of historical data has admittedly challenged the boundaries of historical knowledge and generated new research questions [Drucker 2013] [Nygren, Foka, and Buckland 2014] #nygren2016 [Westin 2014] #westin2015[Chapman, Foka, and Westin 2016] [Foka and Arvidsson 2016]. The process of reconstructing, visualizing and rendering historical data has equally developed together with technology [Westin, Foka, and Chapman 2018]. This is the case in both academic and heritage contexts and in less immediately obvious popular uses, such as the increasingly significant presence and use of history within video games [Chapman 2016]. Regardless of specific context, as this collection of articles shows, the process of digitally capturing and representing historical data is often analogous to and determined by the digital platform used.

    Digital humanities in Sweden and its infrastructure: Status quo and the sine qua non2019In: Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, ISSN 2055-7671, E-ISSN 2055-768XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article offers a state-of-the-art overview of a number of Digital Humanities (DH) initiatives that have emerged in Sweden over the past decade. We identify two major developments that seem to be taking place within DH, with a specific focus on the infrastructural aspects of the development: (1) a strive to open up and broaden the research output and (2) multi-disciplinary collaboration and its effects. The two major components accentuate the new infrastructural patterns that are developing and the challenges these infer on universities. While current research is at large multi-disciplinary, developing infrastructures also enable the move towards post-disciplinarity, bringing the universities closer to the surrounding society. At five universities in Sweden, individual-sited infrastructures supporting DH research have been built today. They are complemented by national and international infrastructures, thus supporting developments and tackling some of the major challenges. In the article, the relations between individual disciplines, the question of multi- and post-disciplinarity, and the field of Digital Humanities are discussed, while stressing the factors necessary—sine qua non—for a fruitful development of the scholarly infrastructures.

    Fysiken, tekniken och framtiden: Om gränsdragningsarbete i forskning och lärogång inom fysik och teknik vid Uppsala Universitet 1955-19752015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats syftar till att undersöka utbildning och forskning inom fysik- och teknikämnena

    vid Uppsala universitet mellan åren 1955 och 1975. Här studeras dels växelverkan mellan två

    olika verksamheter; utbildning och forskning, och dels den lokala utvecklingen av, och

    gränsdragningsarbetet mellan, två vetenskapliga discipliner; fysik och teknik. Förändringarna

    tolkas som resultat av interaktion mellan forskning och utbildning å ena sidan, och utbildning och

    andra samhälleliga arenor å andra. Uppsatsen diskuterar Thomas Gieryns teori om att epistemisk

    auktoritet hos en vetenskap uppkommer nedströms, i en samhällelig arena utanför forskningen

    där den uppkom. I uppsatsen drivs tesen att lärogång inte enbart kan räknas som nedströms i

    relation till forskning utan som uppströms, nedströms och mer därtill. Teknikämnet i Uppsala

    fick sin epistemiska auktoritet vid inrättandet av universitetsingenjörsutbildningen snarare än i

    samband med den forskningsverksamhet som följde. Gieryn hävdar också att vetenskap

    definieras och förstås genom att avgränsas från sådant som det inte är. Fysik och teknik har

    exempelvis länge ställts mot varandra och jämförts i egenskap av skilda discipliner.

    Undersökningen visar dock att lärogången i fysik inte entydigt speglade distinkta

    fysikvetenskapliga områden, utan medvetet inkorporerade övning i både ingenjörskap och

    undervisning. Den tekniska utbildningen drog å andra sidan nytta av den befintliga lärogången i

    fysik. Detta utmanade de vetenskapliga gränserna för skolämnena fysik och teknik.

    Technology of Iron: Choices and Innovation2009In: Materials and Manufacturing Processes, ISSN 1042-6914, E-ISSN 1532-2475, Vol. 24, no 9, p. 981-986Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the concept of technological change and choices and how new techniques are rejected or accepted in different socioeconomic and power systems. If we are to understand and deal with technological changes, we need to investigate their causes and relations to geographical area and power systems both now and in the past. We have chosen to study the two almost completely different types of societies, Sweden and Greece, in order to understand some of the mechanisms behind the changes in technology and techniques. Our aim is to participate in widening the scope of archaeometallurgy, since traditionally we have focused on empirical analysis of material culture rather than theory building.

    Benevolent Technotopias and Hitherto Unimaginable Meats: tracing the promises of In Vitro Meat2016In: Social Studies of Science, ISSN 0306-3127, E-ISSN 1460-3659, Vol. 46, no 5, p. 725-748Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, in vitro (Latin: in glass) meat researchers strive to overhaul meat production technologies by producing meat outside animal bodies, primarily by culturing cells. In the process, meat should become healthier, more environmentally friendly and kinder to animals. In this article, I scrutinize (and problematize) this promissory discourse by examining the world that proponents envision alongside the world from which promises emerge. First, I trace the increasing number of publications striving to pinpoint the nature of in vitro meat to unveil the creation of an in vitro meat canon wherein perceived possibilities become taken for granted. Second, I investigate how the promissory discourse is often relatively silent on key aspects of how this technology could remake the world. Wet laboratories, animals and end products become foregrounded at the expense of political economy and the biophysical properties of cultured cells. Thus, questions concerning how funding requirements shape representations of this new technology, together with in vitro meat’s particular socio-spatial and socio-ecological implications, become problematically de-emphasized.
