    Genomgår basker en identitetsförändring?: En antropologisk studie om nationalism och unga baskers identitetsskapande i spanska Baskien2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Länge har den nationella idén varit representerad och dominerande i Baskien tillsammans med den nationella identiteten. Baskerna håller fortfarande fast vid en gammal romantiserad bild av att vara en enad och självständig nation och föreställningen om en etnisk särskildhet förstärks av etniska och kulturella markörer såsom ett gemensamt språk, tillhörighetkänsla till plats, historiska anor, gemensamma traditioner och samhörighetskänsla mellan spanska och franska basker. I denna studie belyses och analyseras dessa markörer samt sätts i samband med några av de diskurser som råder i spanska Baskien då de är den symboliska basen för hur basker uttrycker, upprätthåller och skapar föreställningar kring baskisk identitet och nationalism. I takt med en alltmer globaliserad värld utmanas dock den nationella idén och en kulturell förändring sker i Baskien som påverkar åtminstone den yngre generationen spanska baskers sätt att uttrycka sin identitet och nationalism. Ett växlande mellan två identiteter väcker ambivalenta känslor då framtiden diskuteras. Å ena sidan vill man fortsätta vara världsmedborgare, leva i ett gränslöst EU och vara en del av den inre marknaden. Å andra sidan vill man vara en del av ett lokalt kollektiv och samhälle. Den nationella idén, myten och stereotypen av baskerna som tidigare beskrivits som något homogent och endimensionellt är i själva verket heterogent och mångdimensionellt.

    Connected on a heart level: An anthropological discussion about interracial relationships in post-apartheid South Africa2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout history South Africa has been dominated by a white race group and during the era of apartheid racial segregation was encouraged as well as an idea of racial order was established through institutionalised racism. Marriage across racial borders was prohibited according to the Mixed Marriages Act. The end of apartheid and the transition to democracy in 1994 meant a radical political change within the country, but the issue of race became a question of social and economic inequality. In this essay I study the approaches and experiences of interracial couples in the post-apartheid society, and interracial couples impact on the South African society. I am particularly interested in the South Africans idea of social order today and whereas racial thinking is still present in the postapartheid society. I use qualitative content analysis to discuss ideas of order in relation to race and my material consist in audio files from interviews with interracial couples, as well as literature, books and articles. In my analysis I discuss cultural and social norms, fear of race pollution, prejudice and racial stereotypes as well as thoughts about unity and humanness. Racial thinking is still present in the South African society although the development of relationships across racial borders has increased since the end of apartheid. The interracial couples in my study notice a certain uncomfortableness among the people in their surroundings, some more than others, because people are still getting used to the thought of interracial couples. Although racist beliefs and power relations are still implied by the surroundings the couples appear to feel increasingly at home in South Africa, even though they live in an in-between world, in a New South Africa.

    En annan bild av islam: En jämförelse av hur islam och muslimer framställs i svenska nyhetsmedier och i SVT:s dokumentärserie Jag är muslim2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since Islam and Muslims are often portrayed in connection with terrorism, female oppression and security in Swedish news media, I decided I wanted to write my study on the subject “Islam and Swedish media”.

     

    The aim with this study was to examine whether SVT’s documentary series Jag är muslim (I am Muslim in English) portrays Muslims differently from Swedish news media, and if so – how? To find out whether there was a difference, I used following questions:

    • How are Islam and Muslims portrayed in the documentary series Jag är muslim?
    • Does this documentary series give a different picture of Islam and Muslims than what previous studies have shown? i.e. how Islam and Muslims have been portrayed in Swedish news media according to previous studies.
    • How can the variety and complexity that exists within Islam that is shown in Jag är muslim contribute to reducing the stereotypification of Islam and Muslims in Swedish media?
    • What could explain that Jag är muslim gives a different picture of Islam and Muslims than Swedish news media, if that is the case?

    The methods I used were qualitative content analysis and abductive method, and the theories used are social constructivism, news logic, news criteria, and the human-interest frame.

    The conclusion shows that the Muslims participating in Jag är muslim are portrayed as any other Swede, but with some exceptions, such as that many Muslim women wear a veil. Because of this, they are portrayed in a very different way from how they are portrayed in Swedish news media, which is probably caused by the fact that they are shown from a human-interest frame perspective in the series, but from a news criteria perspective in Swedish news media. The Muslims participating in the series do most of the time share opinions, but the fact that Muslims with very different opinions exist are also brought up and discussed.

    Reading Slowly: A Festschrift for Jens E. Braarvig2018Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    "Reading Slowly. A Festschrift for Jens E. Braarvig" contains contributions from a variety of fields as diverse as Buddhist Studies, Linguistics, Middle Eastern Studies, Indology, East Asia Studies, Sinology, Classical Studies and Nordic Studies, all focused in some way on the importance of philological scholarship for understanding history, culture, religion, language and law. Although their objects of study, source language(s), media, focus and research questions are different, the essays in this volume are firmly bound together by the philological method—in the broadest sense of the term—and the scholarship of Jens E. Braarvig, whose vast scope of interest and knowledge is reflected in the breadth of this Festschrift. With contributions dealing directly with sources in languages such as Sanskrit, Pali, Tibetan, Chinese, Arabic, Hebrew, Hurrian, Korean, Latin, Greek and Old Norse, preserved on materials such as birch bark and paper manuscripts, clay tablets, wood slabs, printed editions, and modern day street signs, this volume is not only a homage to the breadth of Jens Braarvig's scholarship, but also a demonstration of the importance of language proficiency and philology for the humanities.

    Social Conflicts, Religion and Human Rights Support: A study of young Christians and Muslims in Scandinavia2018In: Religion and Human Rights: Political and judicial rights through the prism of religious belief / [ed] Sterkens, Carl & Ziebertz, Hans-Georg, Berlin, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research among young people (Spini & Doise 1998, Doise & al 1999) has shown that attitudes toward human rights are influenced by perception of conflicts in society and experience of discrimination and that political affiliation as well as religion also may have effect. However interesting these results are for understanding what factors that may contribute to grassroots’ engagement in human rights, these studies have failed to consider important background variables such as gender and parents’ education level, but also to include a more nuanced operationalization of religion. Drawing on data gathered in Norwegian and Swedish metropolitan upper secondary schools (n=2044) this article therefore aims to replicate earlier research correcting for these research gaps. The analysis showed that while religion had a limited effect on attitudes toward political and judicial rights, controlled for background variables, the effect of experienced discrimination and perception of conflicts related to ethnicity seemed to add significantly to the models. It was also shown that Christians did not report more discrimination related to ideology and ethnicity than non-religious, but that Muslims on the other hand did report more discrimination both related to ideology and ethnicity than others. This study has shown that there is a relation between such perceived discrimination and attitudes toward political and human rights.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay was to examine the justifications of the swedish government to perform medical age assessments on unaccompanied refugee children seeking asylum in Sweden. These governmental justifications were analyzed through Michel Foucault's theory of disciplinary power as well as through anthropological research on classification of age. The empirical material consisted of a selection of websites from different authorities that process medical age assessments. These were then studied through critical discourse analysis. The essay showed that these justifications can be understood as an expression of disciplinary power, where medical age assessments discipline individuals to docile bodies. Furthermore, the analysis also showed that the governmental justifications were partly founded upon western concepts of how a child is supposed to be and what a child is entitled to.

    Logos and Process Thought: A Survey on the Process Studies Journal 1973-20142018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The discussion has explored how process thought might clarify a relation between Logos and a teleological organized form of panentheism. Logos could be described as participating in an event with a primordial beginning leading to creation, incarnation and a conjoining movement between God and the world. Applying Joseph Bracken's concept of society, this movement can be described as a field (the holy Trinity) working in fields. By referring to John's prologue and articles where logos is mentioned, this essay has also explored how logos might be perceived as a person. The survey primarily consists of articles mentioning logos published in Process Studies. Moreover, Catherine Keller’s concept of a poietic language has been adopted and developed referring to Isa 7:15. Finally, drawing an analogy between the Old and the New Testament, this essay can be seen as a critical comment on Alfred North Whitehead's concept of Logos in Religion in the Making. The discussion has frequently drawn on concepts in John’s prologue and concepts elaborated by Whitehead, Bracken, Keller, John B. Cobb and Tokiyuki Nobuhara.

    Figuring Out Who's Who: The Role of Social Categorization in the Language Attitudes Process2018In: Journal of language and social psychology, ISSN 0261-927X, E-ISSN 1552-6526, Vol. 37, no 1, p. 28-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examined the role of social categorization in the language attitudes process. Participants (N = 1,915) from three ethnolinguistic groups residing in the republic of Georgia—Georgians, Armenians, and Azerbaijanis—listened to a speaker reading a text in a Tbilisi-accented (standard variety) and a Mingrelian-accented (nonstandard variety) Georgian guise. We predicted that the three groups would vary in their ability to correctly categorize the two guises and that this intergroup variation in categorization accuracy would result in intergroup variation in language attitudes. These hypotheses were supported. Georgians were more accurate than Armenians and Azerbaijanis in their categorization of both guises. The Tbilisi-accented (Mingrelian-accented) guise was evaluated more (less) favorably when categorized correctly than when miscategorized. This resulted in intergroup variation in language attitudes: Overall, Georgians evaluated the Tbilisi-accented (Mingrelian-accented) guise more (less) favorably than Armenians and Azerbaijanis, due in part to Georgians’ higher categorization accuracy of both guises.

    The Resilience of Heritage: Cultivating a Future of the Past. Essays in Honour of Professor2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Throughout his career, Paul Sinclair has encouraged students to pursue a concerned archaeology that goes beyond establishing cultural chronologies to formulating critical inquiries fundamental to our world and for our future. This book honours his achievements by exploring urbanism, resilience and livelihoods, contacts and trade, and heritage and landscape. In the tradition of Paul Sinclair’s eclectic multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary approach to archaeology and historical ecology, this book expands the scope of archaeology by combining the examination of the material record with climatology, paleoecology, ethnography, sociology and archival sources to address both past and present interactions between people and environment. In doing so, the contributions to this volume highlight the value of knowledge about the past in contemporary society.

    McDonaldsization som en katalysator för radikaliseringsprocessen hos Saracenen: – en religionspsykologisk didaktisk analys av Saracenen i Jag är pilgrimen2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    To use fiction as educational material in school is proven to be effective and a good strategy to help students to understand and discuss other perspectives in difficult questions (Löfstedt, 2011).

    The aim with this essay is to evaluate Saracenens radicalization and the religious influence in Jag är pilgrimen written by Terry Hayes (2016). This was done through James Wallers (2007) theory of radicalization where three aspects of impact where analyzed (Waller, 2007).

    With a qualitative content analysis on chosen part of Hayes book (2016) three questions were answered.

    -          How can Saracenens radicalization be described thru James Wallers (2007) radicalization process and what role dose religion play in this process?

    -          Can we call Saracenens planning against USA as terrorism or religious terrorism?

    -          How can chose parts of Hayes book (2016) be used in education for Religion 2 in Swedish gymnasium to meet following core content in syllabus:

    • Religions and outlooks on life of importance for people's identity, affiliation, community and view of gender equality (Skolverket, 2017)?

    The conclusion from the analysis is that Saracenens radicalization is comparable with Wallers theory and that it is also possible to call Saracenens planning religious terrorism (Jones, 2008). As for the third question, the conclusion is that the material meets the core content well and can be used as a ground for discussion in classroom about radicalization and how religion affects individual’s life.

    Allt som är nytt förflyktigas: Om författarens och förlagens relation till Instagram2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    På sociala medier såsom Facebook, Twitter och Instagram kan både förlag och författare informera om kommande boksläpp, specialerbjudanden och signeringar, och genom att ha en närvaro i dessa medier gör de sig utöver detta tillgängliga och synliga för människorna som köper och läser deras böcker.

    Författaren har dessutom möjlighet att skapa en relation till sina läsare som sträcker sig bortom böckerna och eventuella intervjuer i traditionella medier. Genom sociala medier kan läsarna följa författaren när hon får sin första recension, går på releasefester och skriver på sitt nya alster. Som följare kan man kommentera bilderna, ibland kan man också skicka direktmeddelanden och eventuellt få ett svar tillbaka.

    Den här uppsatsen tittar närmare på hur en svensk författare idag – Sara Bergmark Elfgren – förhåller sig till sociala medier i allmänhet och till Instagram i synnerhet i relation till sitt författarskap. Undersökningen behandlar också hur några svenska förlag ser på Instagram som ett sätt att marknadsföra sig och skapa intresse för sin verksamhet genom en närvaro på Instagram. Uppsatsen behandlar även den litterära offentligheten och diskuterar hur den idag sträcker sig längre än till dagstidningarnas kulturdelar och recensioner på teve.

    Initiatives in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are getting more pronounced than we as a society are used to, and spurs confusion over the perceived dichotomy between corporate ethicising and profitability. H&M is a company engaging in these initiatives, and their manifest of CSR will be analysed for discourse content. Themes such as social institutions, contrasted groups, individuality and collectivism and agency emerge within the pages of the H&M group’s sustainability report.

    ”Den Frälsare vars födelse julen handlar om ber oss att inte vända bort blicken från människor i nöd.”: en inramningsanalys av svenskkyrkliga ledares medverkan i debatten kring det svenska och europeiska flyktingmottagandet, 2014-2016.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish debate surrounding the Swedish and European welcoming of refugees has during the last couple of years engaged actors from all spheres of society. One of the prominent actors in this debate has been archbishop Antje Jackelén who has contributed with articles on the issue together with members of the church board as well as the other bishops in the Church of Sweden. These articles have been published on the debate pages of four major newspapers; Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, Expressen and Aftonbladet. The aim of this research is to study the way leaders in the Church of Sweden frame the welcoming of refugees and asylum seekers in these newspapers between 2014-2016. By using a qualitative frame analysis inspired by a theory of framing used in social movement research (Benford & Snow, 2000) the study will focus primarily on motivational framing, i.e. the way in which authors set out to inspire their audience to take action in a certain issue. In three of the articles collective action frames are identified, in which collective identities are constructed and where the writers stress the importance for people to come together and act towards a more humane way of handling the refugee situation. Another aim of the essay is to study the way in which the Church of Sweden is presented as an actor within the frames used in the articles. The analysis shows how the church is presented as an experienced organisation, driven by the Christian faith to take action in the face of suffering. Finally, the result is analysed through the mediatisation of religion theory, using the concept of three media functions; conduit, environment and language (Hjarvard, 2016). The analysis shows how the newspapers, by publishing the articles, can be interpreted to function as both conduits and environments for the religious information and messages present in the texts. Concerning the third function, media as language, the debate articles are interpreted as living up to the criteria of news value despite the use of religious imagery and language. However, the method and empirical material of this study did not allow for any conclusions regarding how the logic of debate articles have been affecting the way in which leaders in the Church of Sweden debate the welcoming of refugees.

    How to counter undeserving authorship2018In: Insights: the UKSG journal, E-ISSN 2048-7754, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 1-6Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The average number of authors listed on contributions to scientific journals has increased considerably over time. While this may be accounted for by the increased complexity of much research and a corresponding need for extended collaboration, several studies suggest that the prevalence of non-deserving authors on research papers is alarming. In this paper a combined qualitative and quantitative approach is suggested to reduce the number of undeserving authors on academic papers: 1) ask scholars who apply for positions to explain the basics of a random selection of their co-authored papers, and 2) in bibliometric measurements, divide publications and citations by the number of authors.

    Lost in Space: Sökandet efter mening hos människan i Titan A.E.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the depiction of meaningfulness and meaning-making, as seen in human characters in the 2000 animated science fiction film Titan A.E. (directed by Don Bluth). The analysis aims to show how Titan A.E. portrays a collective humanity in their search for a meaningful existence, given the outer space setting of its story. Evil is also brought up, in the context of how it creates meaning within the main narrative of the story. The emotions expressed by the story's characters are treated as if they were real. Meaningfulness and meaning-making get exemplified in both dialogue and visual components seen in the film. In addition to this, some reflection is made on the promotional trailers of Titan A.E. and how their displayed contents differ from the finished product. In parallel to the main analysis, there is a wider discussion made about the relationship between films and their real-world process of production, especially regarding whether theological reflection and the film industry can intersect or not.

    Sitter betyget i de grammatiska metaforerna?: Analys av elevtexter från de nationella proven i Svenska 12018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Grammatiska metaforer har visat sig vara en viktig beståndsdel i det specialiserade språket. Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka sambandet mellan andelen grammatiska metaforer i elevtexter och deras betyg i de nationella provens skriftliga del i bedömningsaspekten ”språk och stil”. Uppsatsens teoretiska utgångspunkt är den systemisk-funktionella lingvistiken, som kompletterats med en översikt av det bedömningsunderlag som provkonstruktörerna tillgängliggjort digitalt. Materialet utgörs av 30 elevtexter från de nationella provens skriftliga del i kursen Svenska 1. Arbetsförloppet har i korta drag utgjorts av inläsning, materialinsamling, kodning av elevtexter och analys av resultat. I resultatet visades en svag korrelation mellan andelen grammatiska metaforer och elevtexternas tilldelade betyg, och variationen mellan enskilda elevtexter inom betygsstegen tyder på att andra bedömningsgrunder har påverkat deras betyg till större grad än andelen grammatiska metaforer. Detta blir således även uppsatsens övergripande slutsatser.

    En sannare bild?: Didaktiska perspektiv kring Vasamuseets historieförmedling2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vilken historia förmedlar museer när det kommer till kvinnohistoria, och hur förhåller sig denna förmedling till genusteoretiska perspektiv? 

    Denna uppsats syfte är att studera de didaktiska val ett historieförmedlande museum gör i samband med en utställningsproduktion, och hur dessa val förhåller sig till genusteoretiska perspektiv. Detta görs genom en analys av Vasamuseets utställing "KVINNORNA".

    Genom kvalitativ narrativanalys studeras Vasamuseets arbetsdokument rörande utställningen, och jämförs sedan mot den färdiga utställning. genomgående teoretiska begrepp är dikotomier baserade på Hirdmans genussystem. Metodologin fokuserar på två poler av historieförmedling: artefakter eller poetik.

    Resultatet av uppsatsen visar att utställningen var från början dominerad av ett individperspektiv där man ville belysa kvinnor med mer eller mindre koppling till skeppet, men att det senare skiftades mot ett större struktursperspektiv. I samband med utställning 2 krymptes utställningen med 2/3-delar vilket resulterade i färre porträtterade individer, samt att de objekt som ställs ut rör sig mot en poetisk förmedling av historia, där man vill locka fram Besökarens affekt. Ur ett genusperspektiv når man inte långt då man problematiserar inte könsstrukturer och låter därmed Besökaren vittna utställningen i ett harmoniperspektiv, vilket accentueras av Isoleringen av kvinnohistoria i ett separat uställningsrum.

    “The Post-Christian Christian Church”: Ecclesiological Implications ofMattias Martinson’s Post-Christian Theology2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Starting in the socio-cultural changes associated with the recent proliferation of various post-terms, this essay explores Mattias Martinson’s proposal for a theological response to these developments. Based on Martinson’s Post-Christian Theology and The Cathedral in the Center, the essay sketches a post-Christian theology that attempts to transcend both traditional Christian theology and atheism as a response to a societal situation of widespread disbelief. To address the ambivalence of the post-Christian society, post-Christian theology needs to be open, adaptable, and provisional, characterized by a ‘neither/nor’ and an ‘in-between,’ rather than by strong metaphysical claims. In a second step, the essay investigates the post-Christian Christian church. To this end, the essay develops an ecclesiological heuristic model to examine the ecclesiological implications of Martinson’s proposal. Situating the Christian church in the nexus of tensions between the divine and the human, the past and the future, and the open and the bounded, the essay demonstrates how the post-Christian church breaks with the established ecclesiological thinking about the church, rejecting the divine elements, the normativity of past and future, and the boundedness of the church. The result is a flattened or weakened church that is better described as a post-Christian atheist church.

    The Spread of Genocide: The Rwandan genocide and its spread in April 19942018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The findings of this study tell us that the attacks started mostly around the 7–8 April in Ruhengeri, Gisenyi, Kibuye, Cyangugu, Gikongoro and Kibungo, followed shortly by Byumba, and in Butare not until 18 April, or somewhere between 15–19 April. The attacks mostly continued the following weeks, ending first in the north and east, either due to lack of Tutsis, or because the region became occupied by the RPF. The perpetrators were mostly the Interahamwe militia, but also the Impuzamugambi militia, gendarmes, soldiers, police, and civilian Hutus and Hutu Power authorities. The delay of attacks in Butare were due to an active resistance by the prefecture’s préfet, managing to keep the region in control and inhibiting the genocide there. There were also signs of resistance in Kibuye, not only by the Tutsis resisting the perpetrators in Bisesero Hills, but also the night patrol that were established which had the purpose of protecting all of the commune’s population, regardless of ethnicity. 

    The organisation of the genocide was flexible. With few exceptions, civilians forced Tutsis to seek refuge initially, by looting or burning of Tutsi property and violence towards the Tutsis. The main perpetrators to complete the orders were Interahamwe militia, with the support of military, gendarmes and police, often led by Hutu Power leaders, in their turn commanded by regional administrative authorities, following orders at least for initiating genocide, from Kigali. Regarding the planning of the genocide, it is clear that it was not sporadic. Leaders awaited their orders, and knew what to do as soon as orders were given. Some differences could be found regarding the organisation in the north, that could be a symptom of little planning. However, the evidence points more to the explanation of lack of necessity of the wide-spread rounding-up that characterised other prefectures before the final massacre.

    By Who, for Whom?: Landscape, Process and Economy in the Bloomery Iron Production AD 400-10002018In: Journal of Archaeology and Ancient History (JAAH), E-ISSN 2001-1199, no 21, p. 1-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Landscape, process and economy in the bloomery iron production during AD400–1000 are all integrated in this paper initiated by an archaeological excavation of a bloomery site in Motala in Östergötland, southeast Sweden. This site is one among other contemporaneous sites with similar features, such as long-term iron production and a location in the landscape within easy reach of communication routes and, most importantly, access to the vital raw materials ore and wood. The site is placed in a rich region with several high-status features, such as richly furnished graves and settlements. We evaluate the transfer of knowledge and skills in a landscape perspective. Interactions in a complex network involving various entrepreneurs, from producers to consumers, are suggested as central. The major focus is on the importance of the organisation, the economic point of view, as well as quality and trade.

    Quantifying Land Use in Past Societies from Cultural Practice and Archaeological Data2018In: Land, ISSN ISSN 2073-445X, Vol. 7, no 1, article id 9Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Quantitative reconstructions of past land use facilitate comparisons between livelihoods in space and time. However, comparison between different types of land use strategies is challenging as land use has a multitude of expressions and intensities. The quantitative method presented here facilitates the exploration and synthetization of uneven archaeological and textual evidence from past societies. The approach quantifies the area required for habitation, agriculture, arboriculture, pasturage, and fuel supply, based on a combination of archaeological, historical, ethnographic and modern evidence from the relevant geographical region. It is designed to stimulate discussion and can be used to test a wide range of hypotheses regarding local and regional economies, ancient trade and redistribution, and the resilience and/or vulnerability of past societies to environmental change. The method also helps identify where our gaps in knowledge are in understanding past human–environment interaction, the ecological footprint of past cultures and their influence on the landscape in a transparent and quantitative manner. The present article focuses especially on the impact of dietary estimates and crop yield estimates, two main elements in calculating land use in past societies due to their uncertainty as well as their significant impact on calculations. By employing archaeological data, including botanical, zoological and isotopic evidence, alongside available textual sources, this method seeks to improve land use and land cover change models by increasing their representativeness and accuracy.

    Bank Identity:: Banks, ID Cards, and the Emergence of a Financial Identification Society in Sweden2018In: Enterprise & society, ISSN 1467-2227, E-ISSN 1467-2235Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today nearly the entire adult population in Sweden uses a digital BankID for more purposes than only financial ones. Issuing identity documents is commonly perceived as a task for state authorities, but in Swedish society banks play a dominant role as identificators. The first contribution of this article is that it explains this unique emergence of bank identity and traces the historical roots of a financial identification society to the mid-1960s. Banks started issuing standardized identity cards as a complement to the new system of paying salaries and wages by direct deposit to checking accounts, and these cards eventually became quasi-official identity documents. The Swedish story thus contrasts the scholarship on identification and state control. By treating identity as both a socio-cultural category and a materialization of a technology of control, I argue that the formalization of official identity documents for everyday use was intertwined with the creation of new financial identities. The introduction and general distribution of ID cards were parts of a process whereby wage earners became financial consumers, and the banks transformed themselves into retail companies. My second contribution therefore relates to the scholarly narrative on the financialization of everyday life since the 1980s. While the mass move to financial identification in Sweden, highlighted in this article, certainly fits the content of this narrative, it questions its chronology.
