    Bedrägliga begrepp: kön och genus inom humanistisk forskning2000Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här antologin diskuteras hur föreställningar om kvinnligt och manligt i olika sammanhang fungerar strukturerande, hur de används, utmanas och förändras.

    Under temat kroppens ambivalens analyseras relationen mellan det biologiska och det sociala könet. Kvinnligt och manligt ifrågasatt visar att det finns utrymme att tänja och, till en viss gräns överskrida gränserna för kvinnligt och manligt. Aktörer och argument handlar om hur konflikter ger upphov till artikulering av konkurrerande uppfattningar om kvinnligt och manligt. Antologin är ett tvär vetenskapligt samarbete mellan forskare inom den historisk-filosofiska fakulteten vid Uppsala universitet.

    Allmogemålaren Anders Ädel2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this dissertation is to investigate the Swedish painter and infantry soldier AndersÄdel (1809-1888), who has hitherto only been known from oral tradition. He lived in a preindustrial, rural society. He practised and developed an old and distinctive interior-decoration tradition in the farmsteads of the province of Hälsingland, in the north of Sweden. Contemporary descriptions convey a picture of a wealthy rural population, where the dominating social class were the owners of large farms, impressive in size, neatness, and the quality of the carpentry. So-called Ädel-paintings, though concentrated to the parish of Ljusdal, are also found in neighbouring parishes, and are a Gustaviann-style floral decoration painted on walls, furniture, and artefacts in especially light-blue, white, and red hues.

    Anders Ädel's biography can be reconstructed from parish records and military archives.Socially, he belonged to the landless rural labourers, who had a more independent positionin northern Sweden than in the south. They embraced the norms and aesthetics of the free-holding farmers, whose farms were the cultural centres of the countryside. The farmers andthe craftsmen of the parish were the style setters of domestic interior design and building. Astyle adopted in one parish confirmed an identity in relation to other parishes and social classes. The integrity and self-awareness which is expressed in the architecture can also be seen in the decorated farmstead interiors.

    Abstract [en]

    David Anthin, Bohuslän as a Literary Meeting Place: The Transformation of a Physical Landscape into a Literary One in Evert Taube's "Inbjudan till Bohuslän".

    The essay discusses Evert Taube's poem "Inbjudan till Bohuslän" ("Invitation to Bohuslän") from the collection Ballader i Bohuslän (Ballads from Bohuslän) of 1943. My purpose is to place the poem in a specific tradition by way of a thematic analysis, while biographical aspects are also considered where relevant. "Inbjudan till Bohuslän" is read as a metapoetical treatise, in which a dialogue with broad poetic traditions is established. Taube proposes to give the province of Bohuslän on the Swedish west coast a new literary guise. Male Viking-heroism gives way to a feminine and maternal ideal. At the same time a childhood landscape is newly presented to Rönnerdahl as poet, according to the literary ideals he—as the invited guest—himself harbours and champions.

    First and foremost, I argue that the poem's dialogue is characterized by an affnity with literary traditions. Further, Taube's own, biographically verifiable experiences are shown to underlie the text, although they have successively been toned down or symbolically reshaped during the many drafts of the poem.

    Taube stresses the idyllic aspects of Bohuslän. He show­cases a cultivated and sheltered landscape in a way similar to the previous, 1890s generation of Swedish authors: Selma Lagerlöf, Verner von Heidenstam, and Erik Axel Karlfeldt. Thus Taube also turns his back on a dominant aesthetic of the Swedish 1880s, with its emphasis on a harsh and deterministic coastal environment. At length this Taubian critique of the 1880s transforms into a criticism also of Modernism.

    Taube further conducts a dialogue with the pastoral poetry of antiquity. The essay proposes that the poet is influenced by a pastoral mode in "Inbjudan till Bohuslän". Paul Alpers' research into the nature of pastoral provides the prime structure for this section. Alpers reasons that the pastoral speaker lacks the strength to control the conditions of his or her world, and only governs in the realm of song. The pastoral process (as originally identified by William Empson) also reflects a movement from the complex to the simple, and Alpers shows how this works in Wordsworth's poem "The Solitary Reaper" (1807). Here the Romantic poet hears a rustic girl's working ditty and wishes to experience a pastoral transformation. In "Inbjudan till Bohuslän" the poet's urge to Rönnerdahl is much the same, as Wordsworth's singing girl has a sister also in the landscape of Bohuslän. Her name is Karin Johansson, and she is meant to give voice to Rönnerdahl's ballads.

    "Inbjudan till Bohuslän" also recalls Horace and his prizing of seclusion. A study of several drafts of the poem (in the Evert Taube archives, Gothenburg University Library) shows that this classic influence is successively muted. On a deeper thematic and modal level, however, a proximity to Horace remains striking.

    With Mikhail Bakhtin one may further conclude that an idyllic chronotope pervades Taube's poem. A cyclic chronology is hailed in the landscape of peaceful dales among rocky hills and cliffs. By the same token there is no evidence of a sentimental yearning for a lost landscape—the one evoked is constantly at hand, and also available for the future. The idyll in "Inbjudan till Bohuslän" can therefore be described as progressive.

    The poem has a darker streak in a theme of mortality. The poet, however, finds solace in a dialogue with Shakespeare and Horace, who give promises of eternal life for poetry: Ars longa, vita brevis.

    Flint Daggers and Technological Knowledge: Production and Consumption During LN I2000In: Form, function & context: Material Culture Studies in Scandinavian Archaeology / [ed] Deborah Olausson & Helle Vandkilde, Stockholm: Almqvist & Wiksell International , 2000, p. 135-154Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Debatten kring den etablerade flintdolkstypologin har under 1970, -80, och -90-talet visat att den inte enbart avspeglar en kronologisk serie. Under LN I är det tydligt att det under flera hundra år existerar åtminstone två regioner där olika typer av dolkar produceras. Ett västligt område där lancettformade dolkar utan uttalat grepp tillverkas och ett östligt område där dolkar med uttalat grepp tillverkas. Detta innebär att flera av de huvudtyper, och några av de undertyper, som Lomborg definierat kan betraktas som reella typer i den bemärkelsen att de härstammar från geografiskt och kronologiskt begränsade normativa, teknologiska traditioner. Detta antagande är svårt att styrka genom studier av statiska, arkeologiska material, men argument för en sådan tolkning presenteras i artikeln utifrån en experimentell studie där flintdolksteknologin studeras ingående. En översiktlig undersökning av lösfunna dolkar i Skandinavien visar att de två produktionsområdena har påverkat två geografiskt skilda konsumtionsområden. Det västra produktionsområdet har avsatt dolkar i sydvästra Norge, längs den norska västkusten upp till Trondheim och sedan över Sylarna till Sverige och vidare till den norrländska östkusten. Det östra produktionsområdet tycks i sin tur ha avsatt dolkar i Västergötland, Bohuslän, sydöstra Norge och i östra Mellansverige upp till Dalälven.

    God in the act of reference: A conceptual analysis of reference and reality and its consequences for the debate on religious realism and nonrealism2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The dissertation addresses the problem of reference actualised in religiousrealism's claim that religious nonrealism is religiously inadequate since init "God" does not refer to a God existing independently of human conceptualisations. The study aims to show that the referential argument against religious nonrealism is not necessarily successful once the existential and referential presumptions of the argument are critically examined. To that end a gradual distinction between conceptualisations with lower and higher dependencies on physical characteristics is introduced to account for how we conceptualise our surroundings and why we consider something to be real or not. Further, Donnellan's referential-attributive distinction is understood in the light of the dissolution of the strict division between semantics and pragmatics, and is used for suggesting a view on the referent as constituted by the speaker's directive intentions as manifested and interpreted in the context of utterance. From ordinary language use, including contexts such as children's make-believe play, it is shown that both physically existing and so called non-existing objects are constituted as referents with higher or lower dependencies on physical characteristics and as having various conceptual relations and functions. It is finally argued that such a pragmatic analysis of what constitutes the referent to "God" can account for why God in a religious context can be considered to be real without additionally asserting God's metaphysical and independent existence.

    Future generations: A challenge for moral theory2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For the last thirty years or so, there has been a search underway for a theory that canaccommodate our intuitions in regard to moral duties to future generations. The object ofthis search has proved surprisingly elusive. The classical moral theories in the literature allhave perplexing implications in this area. Classical Utilitarianism, for instance, implies thatit could be better to expand a population even if everyone in the resulting populationwould be much worse off than in the original.

    The main problem has been to find an adequate population theory, that is, a theoryabout the moral value of states of affairs where the number of people, the quality of theirlives, and their identities may vary. Since, arguably, any reasonable moral theory has totake these aspects of possible states of affairs into account when determining the normativestatus of actions, the study of population theory is of general import for moral theory.

    A number of theories have been proposed in the literature that purport to avoidcounter-intuitive implications such as the one mentioned above. The suggestions arediverse: introducing novel ways of aggregating welfare into a measure of value, revising thenotion of a, life worth living, questioning the way we can compare and measure welfare,counting people's welfare differently depending on the temporal location or the modalfeatures of their lives, and challenging the logic of axiological and normative concepts. Weinvestigate the concepts and assumptions involved in these theories as well as theirimplications for population theory.

    In our discussion, we propose a number of intuitively appealing and logically weakadequacy conditions for an acceptable population theory. Finally, we consider whether it ispossible to find a theory that satisfies all of these conditions. We prove that no such theory exists.

    The aim of this dissertation is to challenge mainstream art-history by studying 19th century genre painting as a social phenomenon. In a contemporary context, these subjects areseen as powerful agents of a new situation in art, in an academic context as well as transformed into massmedia, where the boundaries between visual art and literature are consciously blurred. By 1880, younger artists questioned narrative painting as such, and fromthen on genre subjects has been held in low esteem by art historians. The narrative tendency during the 20th century has mainly been explored by such media as film, televisionand literature.

    The general attitude of the art-establishment in 19th century Sweden, concentrated inKonstakademien (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts), reflects a pragmatic outlook on itspossibilities, suitable for a small country trying to establish a flourishing art. The professional identity of a painter both involved their being part of a massmedia-related society,and cultivating traditional ways of establishing themselves as artists. In this process theirsocial background was of crucial importance. Some were the sons of small farmers, and inthe eyes of contemporary critics, as well as of authors of fiction, their popular origin was atrue asset to their art. The leading woman artist, Amalia Lindegren, was regarded mainlyas a pioneer, whose career became an example for the advocates of liberal politics, but described in stereotypical statements as a brilliant exception from others of her sex.

    Swedish art is seen in a European context also, and special emphasis is given to the question of Scandinavian art, appearing as a vision more than representative works of art. Thedissertation concludes in an interpretation of the general tendencies in Swedish genrepainting 1825-1880. The painters are followed to their favourite haunts, while discussingthe patriotic exoticism expressed in subject matter. Düsseldorf was the foreign town having the strongest appeal to young Swedish artists, apart from Paris, but in modernist art-history it has become a synonym for false idealism or half-hearted realism. An attempt is made to use the term "idealrealism" (idealist realism), assuming that the combination of a depiction of an earthly reality combined with an idealistic or moral aim is part of a conscious striving towards synthesis, and not a mistake made by painters unable to discover the blessings of true naturalism. In the 19th century, genre painting could appear both as an instrument for nostalgia and dreams of patriotic traditions seen in peasants, and as a place for statements on contemporary society.

    What's in a name?: A study of sobriquets in the Pesharim2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study addresses the problem of a simplistic historical interpretation of the sobriquetsin the pesharim. An alternative approach is advocated taking its beginning in perceiving themessage in the pesharim as primarily an ideological vindication of the Qumran community, theYahad. The role and function of the sobriquets comes in this context close to the phenomenonknown as nicknaming. A comparison is made with similar biblical designations, e.g. "king ofthe South" and `king of the North" in Daniel 11, Pompey in the Psalms of Solomon, "Babylon"in the Hebrew Bible and in the New Testament, "the synagogue of Satan" and "the womanJezebel" in Revelation. On the basis of these analogies it is concluded that such inventedepithets are derived from biblical concepts and expressions. However, there is no intention ofsecrecy when designing such epithets

    In the case of three categories, namely sobriquets of enemies, honourable sobriquets andsobriquets of rulers, these designations are to be understood from a biblical angle and from theperspective of the Yahad. Thus "the Wicked Priest" has failed to fill his obligation as a priestand has become instead a physical danger towards the community. "The Man of the Lie", withhis second name "the Spreader of the Lie" imposes a direct authoritative threat against theYahad. Likewise "the Seekers of Smooth Things". This group has received its epithet mainlyfrom their alleged alliance with the ruling power in Jerusalem. Together with "Ephraim", "Manasseh", "the House of Peleg " "the traitors" and "the House of Absalom", the two latter, designations belongs to a sphere of groups and factions, which left the realm around the Yahad.The key to the meaning of their designations is betrayal. "The Teacher of Righteousness" is thedesignation of the founder and inspirer of the Yahad. This title reflects his crucial functions forthe Yahad. "The Doers of the Torah" designates the faithful adherents to the Teacher. Both theKittim and the Angry Lion are godly authorised retaliators of the wicked within the own People.A consequence of the investigation is that the sobriquets cannot be one-sidedly understood as anhistorical cipher. Even if the epithets originated in an historical situation, their primary functionis to evaluate different characters and groups.

    The Bambatha Watershed: Swedish Missionaries, African Christians and an Evolving Zulu Church in Rural Natal and Zululand 1902-19102000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the Church of Sweden Mission and the encounter between Swedish missionaries, African Christians and evangelists in Natal and Zululand in the early twentieth century. The ambition with the present study is to demonstrate that the mission enterprise was dependent on and an integral part of developments in society at large. It attends to the issue of how the idea of folk Christianisation and the establishing of a territorial folk church on the mission field originated in the Swedish society and was put into practice in South Africa. It describes how the goals implied attempted to both change and preserve African society. This was a task mainly assigned the African evangelists. By closely focusing on the particular regions where the Church of Sweden Mission was present, conflicts between pre-capitalistand capitalist, black and white societies are revealed. The 1906 Bambatha uprising became a watershed. The present study demonstrates how the uprising differently affected different regions and also the evolving -Zulu church. in the one region where Christianity was made compatible with African Nationalist claims, it was demonstrated that it was possible to be both a nationalist and a Christian, which paved the way for both religious independency and nationalist resistance and, eventually, large scale conversions.
