    Tekniska misslyckanden som politisk resurs: Tunnelkommissionens tekniksyn i utredningarna av miljöskandalen vid Hallandsås2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    År 1998 tillkallades en kommission för att utreda giftskandalen i Hallandsåsen som inträffat ett år tidigare, projektet präglades tidigt av såväl organisatoriska som tekniska motgångar och slutade i en miljöskandal. Kommissionens främsta uppgift blev att kartlägga händelsen och ta fram både orsaker för de inträffade och åtgärder för att det inte skulle kunna ske igen, arbetet resulterade i två statliga utredningar. Mängden tillsatta kommissioner hade ökat stadigt under 1900-talet och stor tillit tillskrevs utredningsväsendet som en arena för samhällsforskning. Denna rapport undersöker hur kommissionens syn på teknik och tekniska misslyckanden uttrycks i de statliga utredningarna om händelserna i Hallandsåsen. Undersökningen belyser hur tekniksyn kan påverka vad som blir samhällsforskning och hur detta i sin tur kan användas som politisk resurs. Statliga utredningar är ett slags gränsland mellan politik och vetenskap och ses ofta som en frizon för kunskapsproduktion. Det blir på så vis högst relevant att undersöka de omständigheter som råder när en statlig utredning blir till, både för att förstå dess roll som gränsorganisation men även för att nyansera bilden av vad en SOU är.

    Industrialismens pris: En undersökning om kopplingarna mellan rasbiologi och vattenkraftsutbyggnaden i Norrland under 1900-talets början2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna undersökning behandlar relationerna mellan högmodernism, rasbiologi och industrialiseringen av Norrland under tidigt 1900-tal. Syftet är att analysera de samband som fanns mellan teknikutbredningen, främst i form av vattenkraft, i traditionellt samiska områden och rasbiologins väg till att bli ett etablerat forskningsfält. Herman Lundborg, som var drivande i processen för ett statligt institut för rasbiologi i Sverige, hade särskilt fokus på samerna vilket gör det intressant att studera hans idéers påverkan på industrialiseringen i Norrland. De källor som används är främst riksdagstryck gällande samer, vattenkraft och avvittring och kompletteras av annat tryckt material från intressenter för och emot industrialiseringen samt tryckt material om rashygien och rasbiologi. Genom att använda Scotts teorier om högmodernism, Adas teori om kolonial vetenskap och Headricks teori om teknik som verktyg för kolonisering nåddes slutsatserna att tekniken fungerat både som verktyg och motiv för Norrlands kolonisering. Rasbiologin gav legitimitet till idéer om rasers olika värde bidrog till det osynlighetsgörande av samerna som var nödvändigt för att kunna exploatera naturresurser inom renbeteslandet.

    Vetenskapshistoriedisciplinens etiska rötter: Kulturkritik, idealism och dygdelära i George Sartons kamp om begreppet humanism2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker vetenskapshistorikern George Sartons (1884–1956) nyhumanism i ljuset av den kritik han riktade mot humanister och de brännande samhällsproblemen han såg i sin samtid. Tidigare forskning har tolkat Sarton som isolerad från samtida intellektuella diskussioner, poängterat Sartons idéers begränsade framgångar och tolkat dessa som ett förespråkande av enhetsvetenskap mer hemmahörande i 1800-talet. Dessa studier har inte i tillräckligt hög utsträckning uppmärksammat Sartons kritik av humanister som en begripliggörande kontext. Humanister kritiserades på grund av deras avståndstagande från vetenskaper resulterade i en verklighetsfrånvändhet som gjorde humanister till irrelevanta för samtiden. Undersökningen visar att Sartons nyhumanism framför allt förespråkade en etik och världsbild för att kunna hantera den tekniska moderniteten. Vetenskapshistoria var ett medel för att ingjuta goda moraliska karaktärsdrag i individer. Genom att fokusera på begreppet humanism synliggörs Sartons försök till att förskjuta betydelsen från klassicism mot antropocentrism för att formulera en samtidsrelevant ideologi.

    Apotekarprofessionen före och efter förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken 19712013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis

    Abstract

    Nils-Otto Ahnfelt: Apotekarprofessionen före och efter förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken

    1971. Uppsala universitet: Inst. f. idé- och lärdomshistoria, C-uppsats, Höstterminen 2013.

     

    Syftet med undersökningen är att studera om apotekarprofessionen förändrats i samband med förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken 1971. Då jag inte har hittat någon adekvat genomgång som inte utgör en partsinlaga på något vis valde jag att studera apotekarprofessionen genom att kombinera Aktör-Nätverks-Teori (ANT) med professionaliseringsteorier för att besvara mina två huvudfrågor: ”Vad var det som gjorde att apotekaryrket förändrades?” samt ”Hände det i samband med förstatligandet av apoteken?”

    Jag vill påstå att den första frågan kan besvaras med att apotekaryrket förändrades både som en effekt av industrialiseringen av läkemedelsindustrin men också att förstatligandet av apoteken innebar en likriktning av verksamheten över hela landet. Monopoliseringen av apoteken ledde till en centralisering av beslut och hur verksamheten skulle bedrivas. Lokalutformningen kunde ges en ny skepnad då många nya apotek etablerades och behovet av lokaler för tillverkning minskade kraftigt. Fokus för verksamheten lades på distribution och rådgivning till kunderna på bekostnad av kompetens kring hela läkemedelskedjan från inköp, tillverkning och kontroll. Beträffande den andra frågan så vill jag påstå att förstatligandet i sig medförde att deprofessionaliseringen påskyndades då apoteksmonopolet både kunde påverka utbildningen, styra personalrekrytering och lönesättning utifrån sin monopolställning. En reallönesänkning inträffade under perioden 1970 – 1990 delvis beroende på en accentuerad feminisering av yrket. Enligt en professionaliseringsteori så kan detta också tolkas som att det upprättats ett informellt kontrakt mellan de professionella och staten där professionen förblir autonom och upplever sitt yrke som ett kall. Motprestationen blir en låg lön och därmed en lägre status.

    Slutligen så framtonar en bild av en individ nämligen apotekaren Rune Lönngren. Jag vill påstå att utan apotekaren och ”aktören” Rune Lönngren, så hade inte detta kunnat orkestreras så framgångsrikt som det gjordes. Rune Lönngrens kännedom om branschen, hans partitillhörighet, hans deltagande i flera statliga utredningar samt sist men inte minst att han blev Apoteksbolagets första styrelseordförande under tiden 1970 – 1977 ledde till att han blev en mycket större maktfaktor än vad som framgår av tidigare historiska skildringar.

    Making Early Modern Medicine: Reproducing Swedish Bitters2016In: Ambix, ISSN 0002-6980, E-ISSN 1745-8234, Vol. 63, no 2, p. 162-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Historians of science and medicine have rarely applied themselves to reproducing the experiments and practices of medicine and pharmacy. This paper delineates our efforts to reproduce "Swedish Bitters," an early modern composite medicine in wide European use from the 1730s to the present. In its original formulation, it was made from seven medicinal simples: aloe, rhubarb, saffron, myrrh, gentian, zedoary and agarikon. These were mixed in alcohol together with some theriac, a composite medicine of classical origin. The paper delineates the compositional history of Swedish Bitters and the medical rationale underlying its composition. It also describes how we go about to reproduce the medicine in a laboratory using early modern pharmaceutical methods, and analyse it using contemporary methods of pharmaceutical chemistry. Our aim is twofold: first, to show how reproducing medicines may provide a path towards a deeper understanding of the role of sensual and practical knowledge in the wider context of early modern medical culture; and second, how it may yield interesting results from the point of view of contemporary pharmaceutical science.

    Historical Continuity or Different Sensory Worlds?: What we Can Learn about the Sensory Characteristics of Early Modern Pharmaceuticals by Taking Them to a Trained Sensory Panel.2020In: Berichte zur Wissenschaftsgeschichte, ISSN 0170-6233, E-ISSN 1522-2365, Vol. 43, no 3, p. 412-429Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Early modern medicine was much more dependent on the senses than its contemporary counterpart. Although a comprehensive medical theory existed that assigned great value to taste and odor of medicaments, historical descriptions of taste and odor appears imprecise and inconsistent to modern eyes. How did historical actors move from subjective experience of taste and odor to culturally stable agreements that facilitated communication about the sensory properties of medicaments? This paper addresses this question, not by investigating texts, but by going straight to the sensory impression, which certain substances convey. The aim is not to overwrite or rectify historical descriptions but to investigate whether modern methodologies for sensory assessment can be enlisted to understand the past. We draw on history of science for framing and research questions, pharmaceutical science for knowledge of pharmaceuticals and preparations, and food and meal science for assaying procedures and protocols. We show that sensory evaluation can yield precise descriptions that would not have been alien to early modern medicine makers. However, there are problems with translating descriptions of taste between different historical contexts. By comparing contemporary descriptions of sensations with eighteenth-century ones, the article discusses how sensory descriptions are highly dependent on context, and subject to historical change.

    "När ljuset börjar falla lika": Sökandet efter en jämlik modernitet i Sonja Berg Pleijels Java-serie2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker en barnbokstrilogi, som skrevs av Sonja Berg Pleijel under sjuttiotalet, och som utspelar sig under de sista åren av nederländskt kolonialt styre i nuvarande Indonesien, och under tiden för den japanska invasionen. I uppsatsen undersöker jag hur två av modernitetens utopier kontrasteras emot varandra, den ena är idén om ett gott kolonialt styre, och den andra är idén om en värld där rättvisa och frihet råder. I alla tre böcker visas exempel upp på varför ett etiskt kolonialt styre varken är möjligt eller önskvärt, och hur utopin om en rättvis värld kan realiseras inom den enskilde människan, även om den inte kan realiseras i världen. För att komma åt dessa frågor kommer jag att sätta boken i ett historiskt idésammanhang, och diskutera de tankar som hörde till de ethische politiek, som var den officiella koloniala policyn i Nederländerna under den tid som boken utspelar sig. Dessa idéer uttrycks ibland av bokens karaktärer, och dessa argumenteras alltid emot eller avslöjas som ohållbara eller felaktiga. Jag kommer dessutom att jämföra bokserien med några barnböcker som gavs ut i Nederländerna under trettio- och fyrtiotalet, och som var tydligt inspirerade av denna tankeströmning. Genom att jämföra Sonja Berg Pleijels böcker med dessa blir argumenten emot denna idéströmning i dessa böcker, och därmed analysen av de två kontrasterande modernitetsprojekten ännu tydligare. Dessutom sätter jag in Sonja Berg Pleijels böcker i det svenska sjuttiotalssammanhang i vilket de skrevs.

    Att materialisera (fram)tiden: Om temporalitet och modernitet i Magasin för konst, nyheter och moder2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to examine and analyse if it is possible to distinguish a new perception of time and temporality in the Swedish fashion magazine Magasin för konst, nyheter och moder, and in that case how it is expressed. To discover this, I have used the theories of the philosophers and historians Reinhart Koselleck and Marshall Berman. In their works they have pointed out and described how the early decades of the nineteenth century was a crucial time for our perception of the modern world, in the sense that we ever since then have experienced a gap between the past and the future where we cannot derive our expectations from our past experiences anymore. I have studied if this notion is communicated in the articles, and came to the conclusion that there is a new awareness of time articulated in the magazine. Mainly  there are three different understandings of time and temporality expressed within the magazine – first are those articles that shows a general new awareness of time in a constructive way, neither through a positive or negative perspective. Furthermore, there are also expressions for connections between the materialistic content in the magazine and the view on temporality, where the acknowledgment of a new temporality in fashion seems to also have an impact on a more ideological perception of time. Finally there are articles which portrays the discrepancy between expectation and experience as something with a negative significance for the future, but similarly puts this in a way that illuminates that the future is now something adaptable and possible to influence in a certain direction. This shows a new way of understanding how, in a Swedish nineteenth century context, material culture could affect people’s awareness of time and temporality and hence also their thoughts and outlook of the future even in more abstract issues. The upcoming becomes possible to interpret as something materialistic, and therefore also something more concrete and arguable.

    Can the Author of ’Can the Subaltern Speak’ Act?: Spivaks essä i relation till ’French theory’ i USA2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to analyze some aspects of the historical surroundings in which Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak wrote her famous essay ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”. From a historical perspective, inspired by Quentin Skinner, I examine how Spivak in a context of French theory in U.S. academy criticized Michel Foucault and defended Jacques Derrida. In the first part of my analysis I relate Spivak’s essay to the ”Foucault and Derrida debate” of the sixties and seventies. I argue that many aspects of Derrida’s early critique of Foucault, and many of the themes of that debate in general, was rhetorically repeated by Spivak in ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”. In the second part of my analysis, I discuss how Foucault and Derrida in the context of U.S. academy were, rather than empirical persons, turned into common nouns well incorporated into the academic language. In this context, where Spivak appeared, I analyze how the ”notions” Foucault and Derrida was disputed. I argue that Spivak, during several years before she wrote ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”, had been trying to refute anglophone marxist and postcolonial intellectuals who criticized Derrida. These critics, including Terry Eagleton, Perry Anderson and Edward Said, had been blaming Derrida for being unhistorical, politically evasive and merely textualistic. My argument is that Spivak sought to defend Derrida towards these critics in ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”. In this context, her aim was to emphasize the efficiency of Derrida’s deconstruction as a political tool for marxist, feminist and Third world intellectuals.

    Le serin amoureux: Sexe, reproduction et race chez Buffon2022In: CLIO, Women, Gender, History, E-ISSN 1777-5299, Vol. 55, p. 91-112Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Cet article interroge la co-construction des concepts de race, de sexe et de reproduction dans l’histoire naturelle et l’élevage des animaux au xviiie siècle. L’analyse porte sur l’article « Serin des Canaries » de l’Histoire naturelle de Buffon. Il s’agit, dans un premier temps, d’examiner la signification sociale et culturelle de l’élevage de ces oiseaux à Paris au xviiie siècle, particulièrement populaire parmi les femmes aisées. Dans un deuxième temps, l’analyse se focalise sur l’article de Buffon pour montrer comment les descriptions scientifiques des différences sexuelles chez les animaux conduisent à la naturalisation des différences humaines, à travers ce que nous appelons un « cercle anthropocentrique de naturalisation ». Dans un troisième temps, nous montrons comment les deux catégories de sexe et de race sont construites l’une par rapport à l’autre dans l’histoire naturelle de Buffon et dans l’élevage des animaux de l’époque.

    Un débat historiographique. Genre, animaux, animalité au siècle des Lumières2022In: Clio.: Women, Gender, History, ISSN 1252-7017, E-ISSN 1777-5299, Vol. 55, p. 209-240Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Ce bilan historiographique porte sur la nouvelle conception du sexe qui se dessine au siècle des Lumières et ses liens avec le développement d’un type inédit de rapports entre humains et animaux dans les espaces métropolitains et coloniaux. Depuis une trentaine d’années, l’histoire des émotions et l’histoire des sciences de l’homme ont contribué à éclairer les conditions historiques dans lesquelles s’est constitué le paradigme anthropologique des Lumières. L’article identifie un certain nombre de thématiques – la domestication, l’émergence de l’animal de compagnie, la pratique de l’élevage sélectif – dont l’étude a permis de reconfigurer les approches du genre. En portant une attention nouvelle aux relations entre genre et animalité, ces travaux ont apporté une contribution décisive à la compréhension des débats savants et politiques des Lumières sur les frontières de l’humain et le binôme nature-culture.

    Medaljens baksida: Instrumentmakaren Daniel Ekström och hans efterföljare i 1700-talets Sverige1999Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with scientific instrument-making in Sweden in the 18th century with an overview of the craft in the second half of the 17th century. The main character in this book, Daniel Ekström is introduced in chapter two. His position within the Swedish scientific community is described and the attempts by the Land Survey Board and the Academy of Sciences to institutionalise his business is discussed. Ekström travelled to England and France and the transfer of technology that followed from this journey is discussed. His followers, Johan Ahl and Johan Zacharias Steinholtz and their work are described. In 1762, Ahl moved to Denmark where the geographical circle, invented by Ekström, became an important technical condition for an ambitious mapping project. In Sweden on the other hand, J. Z. Steinholtz' business ended in bankruptcy. The optical instrument-makers are also described, the most prominent being Carl Lehnberg, who, just like Ekström, became a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences. In the final chapter a few comments on experimental physics and it's influence on Swedish instru-ment-making are given. Though most importantly, the failure of the attempt to establish scientific instrument-making is related to a more general change in how the sciences were regarded in Sweden around 1760.

    In appendix one, a comparison is made between a reflecting telescope by Ekström and a telescope by James Short. In appendix two, a list is given over Swedish instrument-makers and preserved Swedish scientific instruments.

    In appendix three, the workshops in Stockholm are displayed on a map.

    Collecting humanity in the age of Enlightenment: The Hudson's Bay Company and Edinburgh University's natural history museum2023In: Global Intellectual History, ISSN 2380-1883, E-ISSN 2380-1891, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 387-408Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Enlightenment has long been defined as an age of expanding knowledge. Practices of collection, classification and display of objects, which intensified and spread along with the global extension of European empires and commercial networks, meant that Enlightenment intellectual aspiration became global in scope. This article focuses on the colonial collections of the Professor of Natural History at the University of Edinburgh, the Rev. Dr John Walker, who was also the keeper of the university’s natural history museum. This article studies in particular the actors involved in the movement of a large collection of objects from the Hudson’s Bay Company. The collection was provided by an employee of the Company, Andrew Graham who also penned a manuscript about the artefacts and the people inhabiting Rupert’s Land. Graham’s collecting network included other traders, First Nation and Inuit actors and European-based naturalists. The article highlights the importance of conferring historical agency on a diverse cast of figures in the mobile formation and communication of colonial knowledge about humanity. It argues, however, that this movement of knowledge was not frictionless but was conditioned by uneven power relations and violence.

    Abstract [en]

    As new to the Swedish research system, one is faced with a series of questions, about what applies to qualifications, what the networks look like, but also practical issues. To make things easier, YAS has developed a guide for international researchers, to help navigate Swedish academia and remove time-consuming obstacles.

    Choosing futures : Alva Myrdal and the construction of Swedish futures studies, 1967–19722006In: International Review of Social History, ISSN 0020-8590, E-ISSN 1469-512X, Vol. 51, no 2, p. 277-295Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the Swedish discourse on futures studies in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It focuses on the futures discourse of the group appointed by the Prime Minister, Olof Palme, in 1967 under the chairmanship of Alva Myrdal. The Swedish futures discourse focused on futures studies as a democratic means of reform in defence of the Swedish model and “Swedish” values of solidarity and equality, in opposition to an international futurology dominated by the Cold War and dystopic narratives of global disaster. The article suggests that the creation of Swedish futures studies, culminating in a Swedish institute for futures studies, can be seen as a highpoint of postwar planning and the Swedish belief in the possibility of constructing a particularly Swedish future from a particularly Swedish past.

    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.

    Nordic nostalgia and Nordic light: The Swedish model as Utopia 1930–20072009In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 229-245Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the last decade, Sweden has emerged on the other side of the 1990s crisis with, if not its self-image intact, then at least a reasserted confidence as, once again, the most modern country in the world. Crisis management in the 1990s seemed to have succeeded. The Swedish bumblebee – the unthinkable animal that flies despite its high taxes and large public sector – flew again. The ‘Swedish model’ was back after a decade as the punch bag of neoliberalism. Throughout the European centre left – from the debate on the European social model to Ségolène Royal and Gordon Brown – Sweden has reemerged as ‘Nordic light’, proof that a better world is possible. This reappraisal in the eyes of the world has paradoxical consequences in Sweden, since it seems to overwrite the uncertainty and insecurity of crisis with assertion and confidence, while leaving many questions unanswered. It also leads to new definitions of what Sweden is. The paper suggests that Sweden post-1990s suffers from a particular kind of nostalgia, in which the famous Model emerges as a kind of paradise lost with uncertain links both to past and future. While Sweden yet again becomes the utopia of others, it is a kind of future past to itself.
