    Computers in Swedish Society: Documenting Early Use and Trends2012Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]
    • Describes a historiography aimed at addressing the question of how computing shaped and transformed Swedish society between 1950 and 1980
    • Presents a user-centered perspective on the history of computing
    • Examines the documentation of users, describing novel and innovative documentation methods

    In order to understand the role of computers in society, it is important to consider the complex relationship between the design and use of computers from the perspective of the user.

    Computers in Swedish Society reviews this shift in the historiography of computing from inventors and innovations to a user-perspective, and examines how the relevant sources can be created, collected, preserved, and disseminated. The text describes and evaluates a collaborative project in Sweden that documented the stories of around 700 people, and obtained extensive donations of archival records and artifacts. The book also provides a critical discussion on the interpretation of oral evidence, presenting three case studies on how this evidence can inform us about the interaction of computing with large-scale transformations in economies, cultures, and societies.

    Topics and features:

    • Describes a historiography aimed at addressing the question of how computing shaped and transformed Swedish society between 1950 and 1980
    • Presents a user-centered perspective on the history of computing, after explaining the benefits of such an approach
    • Examines the documentation of users, describing novel and innovative documentation methods such as witness seminars and Internet-based collections of memories
    • Discusses the pros and cons of collaborative projects between academia and industry
    • Provides case studies on the interpretation of oral evidence, dealing with social networks and flows of knowledge, users and uses of technology, and the materiality and geography of computing

    The methods and documentation of users described in this unique text/reference will not only be of great interest to historians of computing, technology, science and medicine, but also to researchers in science and technology studies, in library and information studies, and in ethnography, ethnology and folkloristic studies.

    Confronting class: the American motel in early post-war Sweden2013In: Journal of Tourism History, ISSN 1755-182X, E-ISSN 1755-1838, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 305-324Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Swedish tourism discourse, the car-centred American way of life was by the mid-1950s met with enthusiasm. In the case of accommodation, it was above all the motel that served to symbolise the positive values associated with the American model of modernity. The great expectations placed on the motel did not materialise as anticipated, however. In fact, already by the early 1960s, the motel had been brought into disrepute, and it would remain a marginal phenomenon in Swedish auto tourism. This article singles out class as one of the decisive factors for this change of events. The tourism discourse was dominated by the bourgeois middle classes, and only a few of the Swedish motels were built to meet their expectations. The majority offered instead basic lodging for truck drivers, an occupational group embodying a working-class culture that many placed at the very bottom of the social hierarchy. The motel thus materialised in two entirely different cultural and social settings, and it developed into an arena for cultural class-related confrontations. Middle-class dreams collided with blue-collar realities, and in this clash, the discontent latent in great expectations became manifest.

    Designing Democracy: The UTOPIA-project and the Role of the Nordic Labor Movement in Technological Change during the 1970s and 1980s2011In: History of Nordic Computing 3: Third IFIP WG9.7 Conference, HiNC 3, Stockholm, Sweden, October 18–20, 2010: Revised Selected Papers, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2011, p. 187-195Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By using the UTOPIA-project as an example, this paper highlights the role of the Nordic labor movement in technological change and underlines that there are different incentives for technological change. While corporations developing technology usually pursued increased efficiency in production, the UTOPIA-project aimed at other, alternative goals such as translating social values regarding job skills, quality of work, and quality of products into new computer hardware and software for the graphic industries. In the larger context, the UTOPIA-project can be seen as an attempt by the labor movement to revitalize and realize the old dream of industrial democracy by designing computing technology.
