    Blåkullamarschen i Visby1988In: Tradisjon, ISSN 0332-5997, Vol. 18, p. 77-94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the «B1åkulla» march in Visby, Gotland, Sweden. The event is arranged yearly on Maundy Thursday. Children and parents defy the winds, rain and snow of April to gather in the center of the small medieval town and march up and down the formerly busy street, hoping to get some of the coloured, candyfilled paper eggs distributed by the local merchants' association. The march is headed by a brass band, and most of the children, and some of their parents, are dressed up as påskkäringar, wearing old and outsized skirts and blouses, big scarves around their heads, their faces made up with red lipstick and black paint.

    The children are the heirs of the påskkäringar of the forties, fifties and sixties. Youngsters then dressed up as old women, begging for Easter eggs, bread and candies, walking around individually or in small groups. Although formerly widespread, the custom faded in the sixties and almost disappeared.

    The march was initiated by merchants in Visby in 1973 and became an immediate success. About one thousand children, one-fourth of all the children on the island, participated together with their parents, making the march one of the major events of the year.

    To find the factors that contributed to the success of the event, I turn to the perspectives of the merchants, the children and the parents. The merchants have obvious commercial interests; the children disguise themselves and get free candy; the parents remember the old days when the busy street was the natural meeting place and they walked around as påskkäringar themselves.

    From the researcher's perspective, I discuss the event in terms of effectivization, rationalization and institutionalization of an old custom, then turning to Hobsbawm's notion of «traditionalization». These concepts illuminate the historical and social background against which the actions of the performers may be analyzed. The last part of the paper discusses the concepts of «revitalization» and «folklorism». I maintain that these theoretical concepts must be rejected on the grounds that they are heavily biased by objectivist notions of «authenticity» and «false consciousness.» I find that, however simple and obvious the objectives of the actors may seem, only they can explain why so many children and parents in Visby find it worthwhile to walk the streets of Visby together on a Thursday afternoon in April.

    Concerts and festivals: Public performances of folk music in Sweden2001In: The world of music (Wilhelmshaven), ISSN 0043-8774, Vol. 42, no 2+3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with public performances of folk music in Sweden. After a few introductory remarks on events as study objects, follows a brief historical survey of some main forms or formats of such performances. An analytical model is then presented, which is used to explain some of the changes that has occurred in public presentations of folk music in Sweden. Then the modern folk music festival is examined, a type of event that in short time has been spread all over the world. Folk music festivals, it is argued, can be read as texts, complex as they are, full of significance, pregnant with meaning. But they can also be seen as instruments, powerful tools for change, manipulation, for overriding old power structures and cultural borders, as well as setting up new.

    Abstract [en]

    Cultural relativity is a key to much cultural research. What are its limits? The author describes the first world championship in chöömej (“throat singing”), held in Kyzyl, Tuva, Siberia, former USSR, 1993, in terms of a Barthesian ‘punctum’. From the perspective of the jury, the author discusses the capacities of the winner and concludes that one of these was an ability to overcome and transcend preconceptions of cultural relativity, a phenomenon of methodological and theoretical importance.

    Didjeridu - från Arnhem Land till Internet - och tillbaka: tre perspektiv på kulturell exotism, globalisering och makt2003In: Kampen för erkännande: studier i makt och motstånd / [ed] Henrik Person, Stockholm: Rosima , 2003, p. 231-262Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The didjeridu, a musical instrument once used only by Australian aboriginies in north Arnhem Land, has within little more than ten years become spread worldwide. Not only has it become a symbol of black aboriginality in Australia, but it has also taken place among koalas and bumerangs as a symbol of Australianess. It has also become widely used as a symbol of indigeniety among indigenous peoples and their spokesmen all over the world. Another large group of didjeridu-fans are ’alternative lifestylers’ and ’New-Age’ devotees, for which the didjeridu represents, among other things, a immideate connection to Mother Earth and the spiritual world. In this articel the fast transition from North Arnhem Land to Internet and back is examined, from three perspectives: the tourist’s, the musicologist’s and the cultural analyst’s. It is argued that an important reason behind the fast spread of the instrument is a major shift in the control of the knowledge of the instrument from ”knowers” to ”doers”, and that the global visibility reflects and sthrengthens rather than challenges the basic assymetrical power relations between blacks and whites, rulers and the ruled.

    Finding their place: islands as locus and focus2012In: Cultural Geographies, ISSN 1474-4740, E-ISSN 1477-0881, p. 1-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The number of islands in the world is overwhelming. In contrast, the representation of islands is all but different. This brings up fundamental questions about the relations between the discourses about islands and islands as physical spaces, between islands as metaphors and as lived realities. When representations of islands are the focus of study, what about island as locus? In essence, the underlying problem is a variation of the ‘hylomorphic problem’, the relationship between substance, form and matter. In this paper, I start by addressing the role of islands in my own academic branch, ethnology, and then by discussing some implications of the ‘cognitive turn’ in ethnology for what is considered as its primary object of study. After a brief discussion of a variation of the problem known among anthropologists as the ‘locus-focus debate’, I turn to a discussion of the ‘real versus metaphoric employment of islands’ in island studies. In the last section I return to the key issue of my own studies of islands: how to grapple with the homogeneity of ‘the island’ and the immense diversity of islands.

    Gute, Gotlander, Mainlander, Swede: Ethnonyms and Identifications in a Changing Island Society2012In: Refereed papers from The 8th International Small Island Cultures Conference held in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada on June 6th-9th 2012 / [ed] Henry Johnson & Heather Sparling, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how identities are negotiated and articulated in Gotland, Sweden’s biggest island. The yearly interaction between close to a million visitors and the less than 60,000 islanders has cemented an old division between ‘islander’ and ‘mainlander’. For a long time, Gotland residents have felt that ‘belonging’ and ‘islander identity’ have been connected to place and the island condition. In recent years, the old categories of tourist vs. islander have been reshaped in the context of migration and 'multiculturality'. New categories of islanders have emerged, including ‘Gutars’, presuming an authentic [JH1] island status, and ‘Gotlanders’, people with multiple origins who are neither islanders nor mainlanders. The concept of multiculturality has also been rearticulated in a radically different way than in most Swedish urban centers and other parts of Northern Europe. This paper argues that these recent changes notwithstanding, the relation to place, to the island and to the island life, is still the core of belonging and identity.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how identities are negotiated and spelled out in Gotland, the biggest island in Sweden. Since long Gotland have been a favorite summer destination. The yearly interaction between up to a million visitors that come to appreciate the islands perceived remoteness, endemism and archaism, and the less than 60 000 islanders striving to keep up to modern life expectancies, have petrified an old border between 'islander' and 'mainlander'. Since long, 'belonging' and the notion of 'islander identity' has been seen as growing out of place and the island condition. In recent years, however, the old categories have been reshaped in the context of migration and 'multiculturality'. One category of islanders have become 'gutar', presuming an original island status. A new "third space" have been created, inhabited by a new category of 'gotlanders', people of many origins that are neither islanders nor mainlanders. Thus not only local identity categories have changed; also the notion of multiculturality have been spelled out in a radically different way than in most urban centers in Sweden and other parts of North Europe. The paper argues that these recent changes notwithstanding, the relation to place, to the island and to the island life, is still the core of belonging and identity.

    "I'm Old and I'm Proud!": Dance, Music, and the Formation of Cultural Identity among Pensioners in Sweden.1994In: The world of music (Wilhelmshaven), ISSN 0043-8774, Vol. 36, no 3, p. 5-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses the organisation of this growing social and cultural diversity in Sweden and the expressive forms through which it is publicly dramatised. To be more exact, the article deals with the role of dance and music in the formation of anew and powerful social and cultural category in Sweden: the retired or the'pensioners'. I argue that the expressive forms which pensioners use to create asense of togetherness and to become recognised as a cultural category in Swedishsociety, are basically the same as those which many ethnic groups have been usingfor a long time for the same purposes. By claiming "we are different, we have our own culture", and by using the same kinds of typified music, dance, folk costume,food, etc., as ethnic groups do to display their differences publicly, the pensionersbecome a sort of ethnic group. I refer to this as a process of ethnification. As a result, pensioners become more visible in society, strengthen their social andcultural identity, and increase their status and power at some levels in Swedish society. But at the same time they may also find themselves marginalized and demoted to a secondary level in the society as a whole, a level where mostimmigrants and other types of 'foreigners' in Swedish society are to be found.

    In or on?: Island Words, Island Worlds: II2011In: Island Studies Journal, ISSN 1715-2593, E-ISSN 1715-2593, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 227-244Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first part of the paper examines uses and meanings of the orientationalmetaphors ‘in’, ‘on’, ‘out’ and ‘off’. In the discussed languages in North Western Europe thereare general principles of metaphoric entailment and underlying image schemas that guide thechoice of positional metaphor: islands you are normally ‘on’, and mainlands ‘in’. The secondpart of the paper examines cases where this use is debated or contested. The author finds thatthese contestations seem to be fuelled by the different relations between subject and object thatpositional metaphors entail. Expressions with ‘in’ highlight belonging and collective identity,enlarge objects by conceptualizing them as encompassing containers, and reduce subjects to apart of the object. Expressions with ‘on’ highlight individuality and agency, reduce the object,and enlarge the subject by placing it above the object. Such differing entailments of positionalmetaphors may influence how islands are positioned and understood.

    Intressedominas och motivattraktion: form och innehåll i Albert Eskeröds Årets äring2008In: RIG: Kulturhistorisk tidskrift, ISSN 0035-5267, E-ISSN 2002-3863, Vol. 91, no 2, p. 85-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses goals and aims as well as ideas about meaning, form and content in Swedish ethnology. The central question concerns whether artefacts, objects, forms should be treated as primary objects of study or as secondary, signs or symbols of an underlying level of content or meaning. A common understanding among Swedish ethnologists is that while earlier ethnologists were mainly occupied with ‘form’ at a ‘surface level’, modern ethnology, from around 1970 and on, became more occupied with ‘content’ and ‘meaning’, at a deeper underlying level. In a similar vein earlier ethnology is described as ‘positivistic’, concerned with the world as an objective ‘outer’ phenomenon, while contemporary ethnology is described as ‘fenomenological’, concerned more with the world as an inner phenomenon.

    Questioning this figure of thought, the author goes on to discuss Albert Eskeröds ”Årets äring”. This dissertation from 1947 is surprisingly ‘modern’, neither “positivistic”, nor occupied with form at a surface level. Eskeröd strongly critizises earlier ethnological practices and notions, especially that of survival, and clearly heralds “modern ethnology”, by his strong focus on meaning, and in his ambition to anchor ‘meaning ’in perspectives borrowed from social psychology and structural functionalism.

    Island words, island worlds: the origins and meanings of words for ‘Islands’ in North-West Europe2009In: Island Studies Journal, ISSN 1715-2593, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 163-182Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes the notion that words mirror ideas, perspectives and worldviews. Etymologies and meanings of general words for ‘islands’ in a number of languagesin North and West Europe are then discussed. Here, islands are shown to be etymologicallyconstituted by the interplay between land and water, and which of these two is emphasizedvaries. In the third section, a number of Swedish island words are surveyed, in an attemptto illuminate the principle of linguistic relativity. Finally, the implications of these findingsfor island studies are discussed.

    This paper examines how identities are negotiated and spelled out in Gotland, the biggest island in Sweden. Since long Gotland have been a favourite summer destination. The yearly interaction between up to a million visitors that come to appreciate the islands percieved remoteness, endemism and archaism, and the less than 60 000 islanders striving to keep up to modern life expectancies, have petrified an old border between 'islander' and 'mainlander'.

Thus not only local identity categories have changed; also the notion of multiculturalty have been spelled out in a radically different way than in most urban centers in Sweden and other parts of North Europe. The paper argues that these recent changes notwithstanding,  the relation to place, to the island and to the island life, is still the core of belonging and identity.

    Islands, culture, and cultural production on an island2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with aspects of culture and cultural production in the island of Gotland, in the middle of the Baltic Sea. After a short introduction to Gotland, I will explore some of the key aspects that make this island stand out as different, and thereby constitute a core of its islandness. In the concluding part I will present a current cultural project, intended to serve as a kind of laboratory test of the content and scope of cultural resources and complexity of the island. In the presentation ‘culture’ is used in two meanings: as a society’s collective understandings, meanings, ideas and values, and as art, literature, music. Also ‘island’ is used in two meanings: as objects in the real world, and as representations, images, conceptions, a phenomenon of the mind. The project draws on and underlines the close interaction between these different meanings.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I will discuss intersections between Rone, in the island of Gotland, Sweden, an old lawn game called ‘kubb’, and a number of global issues of the 21st Century, such as islandness, remoteness, tradition and heritage production, cultural branding, entrepreneurship and the quest for new and authentic experiences. My paper is about marginalization, center periphery relations, and the role of cultural representations in the complex interplay between centers and peripheries. It also raises questions about the possible effects of the creative use of a specific cultural form in the production of local distinctiveness, visibility and attention. The paper is based on interviews and fieldwork in Rone 2004-2008.
