    Bridging the Past and Present: An Analysis of the Swedish Institute’s National Narrative of Sweden and World War II From the War Through the 1960s2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the Swedish Institute’s construction of a national narrative of Sweden and the war and how it changed over time by comparing three time periods, 1939-1945, 1946-1959, 1960-1969. The adapting narrative of World War II serves to illustrate changes in the Swedish Institute’s projected Swedish identity, focusing on neutrality as an intrinsic component. Creating a national narrative to compliment Sweden’s image served to strengthen Sweden’s international reputation. Thus the Swedish Institute’s narrative of Sweden and the war adjusts according to the changing contexts. Ultimately the Swedish Institute constructed a narrative that was complimentary to the image of Sweden they intended to promote internationally.

    Statarna: En undersökning av artiklar ur tidningen Lantarbetaren2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay is about the farmworkers that worked within a system of payment. This consisted in one part of a small amount of salary as payment in money and the other two was for food and a place to live. This type of payment made it problematic to see how much a worker actually earned. It was especially hard to compare with an industrial worker when the houses where run down and the food had a bad quality. Focus for this essay is what was discussed in the union’s weekly newspaper “Lantarbetaren” about the farmworkers between the years 1938-1942 when the debate was most intense, which it was in the last years, were the system of this type of payment was obsolete.

    The essay is focused in three areas, the buildings that the workers lived in and its living condition, the work condition and the workers right to organize.

    Historiebruk eller missbruk?: Sverigedemokraterna och folkhemmet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Folkhemmet eller i alla fall den den idealiserade bilden av folkhemmet har i Sverige haft och fortsätter ha en viss nostalgisk prägel över sig som en slags höjdpunkt av framtidshopp och samhällsbyggande och har kanske framförallt kommit att associeras med de s.k. rekordåren efter andra världskriget. Precis som 1950-talets USA, och Tysklands Wirtschaftwunder så är det en period som associeras med rekordartad tillväxt, låg arbetslöshet och utbyggnad av samhällsservicen.3 Folkhemmet har blivit själva symbolen för landet Sverige.Därför har den också tacksamt låtit sig lånas till olika versioner av historiebruk.

    Socialdemokraterna (SAP) har förstås gärna använt sig av folkhemmet - detta gamla intyg på regeringsduglighet men ckså de Nya Moderaterna under Fredrik Reinfeldt och Per Schlingmann använde sig gärna av Socialdemokratiskt bildspråk från rekordåren, tog vissa nyckelbegrepp och omförhandlade betydelsen i dessa osv. I denna uppsats kommer vi dock att med hjälp av Ulf Zanders historiebrukstypologi undersöka Sverigedemokraterna och deras stundtals kontroversiella historiebruk av folkhemmet, detta kommer att sättas i relation till sverigedemokraternas historiska utvecklingskurva i strävan efter allt mer legitimitet och ideologisering.

    Abstract [en]

    Throughout the course of the 19th century mankind experienced a lot of changes to the way they were used to live life, mostly due to the expansion of the industrial revolution. But the biggest change was perhaps the change in the conditions for women all over the world. Women no longer wanted to live their lives behind closed doors looking out from the window and thinking of all the things that they could have done with their lives. They wanted to be a part of society and they, sometimes literally, fought for change. In Sweden women got the right to vote in 1921. The way there was long and difficult with a lot of obstacles and prejudice to overcome. But not all of the associations had voting rights for women on their agenda. Some of them were strictly philanthropic. After reading Eva Österberg’s book “Rummet vidgas”, where she discusses her theory about 19th century women in Sweden and the “closed room” that used to be their arena of movement and its expansion during the 19th century, I decided to do a research in my hometown and therefor took a closer look at the first association started by women in 1854 in the little town of Eskilstuna, 90 km from Stockholm. The association was started by a few leading women and their goal was to help the less fortunate children of the community with clothes and shoes so they could attend school and later on be useful members of the society. In doing so the women themselves took their rightful place in the public society. The women were very successful, they achieved well more than they had set out for and the association managed to exist for over a hundred years helping thousands of children.

    Kungsord i elfte timmen: Språk och självbild i det gustavianska enväldets legitimitetskamp 1772–18092002Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the language and image of late Swedish absolutism. The sources used are royal medals and royal speeches and ceremonies at the Diets. The images are analysed as linguistic constructions, made up by a framework of concepts articulated in words, symbols and ceremonies around the kings.

    The essential argument is that during the late eighteenth century, European absolute monarchy suffered a severe legitimation crisis that had its origins at a discursive level. The political discourse changed: old conceptions and attitudes were revised, and new ones were established. Faced with these changing prerequisites for legitimacy, the absolute monarchs had increasing difficulty to master the political vocabulary; as traditional political concepts successively lost their potential to legitimise, the new concepts increasingly challenged the existing political order.

    The investigation consists of three analytical parts. The first part focuses on the language and image of Gustaf III. The second part focuses on the reception of the royal images and the discursive expressions among the subjects during the entire period (1772–1809). Attention is also paid to the repressive machinery of Gustavian absolutism as an important part of the struggle for discursive authority. The third part focuses on the language and image of Gustaf IV Adolf.

    The results show fundamental changes over time in the struggles for legitimacy, referred to as a movement from a primarily communicative strategy during the reign of Gustaf III, to a primarily repressive strategy during the reign of Gustaf IV Adolf. These changes are connected to the escalating discursive conflicts shown in the intermediate part, and are essential for the understanding of the final fall of Swedish absolutism in 1809.

    Making a Difference: Sartorial Practices and Social Order in Eighteenth-Century Sweden2016In: Costume - Journal of the Costume Society, ISSN 0590-8876, E-ISSN 1749-6306, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 42-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the seventy-three essays that were submitted to the Swedish RoyalPatriotic Society in 1773, in response to a competition for the best essay on the advantagesand disadvantages of a national dress. When presenting their thoughts on the design andrealization of a national dress, the authors came to reflect on deeper issues of social orderand sartorial culture, describing their views on society and its constituent parts, as well as thetrappings of visual appearances. Clothes were an intricate part of the visual culture surroundingearly modern social hierarchies; differentiation between groups and individuals were readilyvisualized through dress. Focusing on the three primary means for visual differentiationidentified in the essays — colour, fabrics and forms — this article explores the governing notionsof hierarchies in regards to sartorial appearance, and the sartorial practices for making thesocial order legible in late eighteenth-century Sweden.

    Performing Herself: Everyday Practices and the Making of Gender in Early Modern Sweden2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this volume, three researchers engage with the practices of gender and the making of difference between men and women, between the feminine and the masculine, in late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century Sweden. Economic historian Hedvig Widmalm studies the intricate relationship between gender ideals as they were phrased in conduct books and the performative realities of every-day-life as they appear in the correspondences between husbands and wives. Historian Jessica Karlsson approaches work and the performative practices of time-use in late eighteenth and early nineteenth century gentry households. Who did what? Women or men? Young or old? High or low? Married or unmarried? Finally, textile historian Hanna Bäckström enters into the world of handiwork among mid-nineteenth century Swedish gentry women, and the performative nature of knitting, shaping ideals of social status as well as notions of feminine virtues.

     

    The three masters’ theses upon which the three chapters presented in this volume are based, were all written within the Faculty funded masters’ research node Early Modern Cultural History at Uppsala University.

    What to Wear: The Moral Ramifications of Sartorial Practices in Early Modern Sweden2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    “In the beginning”, states the author of an essay that was submitted to the Royal Patriotic Society in Stockholm in 1773, “clothes were used for two reasons: to cover the body, and to keep the body from cold and heat”. With time, “and the propagation of mankind”, a third reason was added: “to ornate the body” according to needs, means and function. Some “performed rougher and heavier work”, others had less heavy, less rough work, and others still “were set to advise and rule” the rest. All was well. But as societies continued to grow, “Amor Sclereratus habendi” – the accursed love of possessing – took hold of mankind, and an additional two, previously unknown, reasons for the use of clothes came into being: “Pride and Self-Indulgence”. Everything changed; everything once “natural” was perverted by the omnipresent desire for “all things foreign”, for “more”, for “tastier”, for “grander”.

    The tone is righteous, the address is condemnatory, and the rhetoric is almost Biblical, with a familiar narrative of a Genesis, an original Sin, and a Fall. The author provides a condensed outline of the sartorial practices: the basic instrumentality of dress (to cover and keep warm), but also the social aspects with the interaction between social creatures, presenting themselves and making claims through decorations, and the resulting complexity and conflicts between the regulating norms and the communicative practices at play, with people making claims and forming the self through consumption and sartorial practices.

    The essay was one of 70 of its kind submitted in response to the question on the “advantages and disadvantages” of a national dress posed by the Royal Patriotic Society earlier that year, inviting the public to submit their replies, promising a gold medal of 30 ducats’ weight to the winner. Departing from these essays, and the rather unique insights into early modern sartorial practices that they provide, my paper focuses on the views of “correctness” and “incorrectness” in sartorial matters, and – more specifically – the different “morals” in play, structuring and governing the sartorial proposals in the essays, such as economic morals (state finances, domestic production), social morals (to dress according to station, and the fear of social confusion), religious morals (with the divine scheme, and godly versus ungodly behaviour), and national morals (with a Swedish way of things, contrasted to foreign models).

    Scripts of Kingship: Essays on Bernadotte and Dynastic Formation in an Age of Revolution2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    When French Marshal Jean Baptiste Bernadotte was elected heir to the Swedish Throne in 1810, a dramatic dynastic venture commenced. In an age of revolutions, marked by political as well as cultural upheavals, the commoner from Pau was transformed into King Charles XIV John and the head of a new royal dynasty in Sweden and Norway. Although fraught with challenges, the venture proved successful. As restoration set in, and the Napoleonides of Europe fell one after the other, Bernadotte held fast, and today the dynasty is approaching its bicentennial on the throne.

    In nine illustrated essays, the formation of a dynasty is explored as it unfolded in media such as ceremonies, spatial arrangements, opera performances, publicity and panegyrics.

    Abstract [en]

    This composition investigates the challenges and problems that Domnarvets workers union had to relate to under its pioneering time 1890-1891. In my investigation I used the protocols from the union meetings where their interests where discussed. My purpose is to reveal these problems, and I have selected a couple of them in this composition. The issues are the harassments from the management and the difficulties in obtain place for their meetings. The relation to the state church, revivalist movement and the temperance movement and the difficulties of enthuse the workers in Domnarvet to the union. Finally I have been looking at the union´s relation to the major working class issues at the time, the eight hour day and the voting right.

    My method is to analyze the protocols of the meetings and point out the issues that I find interesting to my investigation. I have been looking for strategies from the union and for political ideologies in the protocols. I have also had an open eye for arguments and ideas that showed the unions stand in the issues I was interested in.

    The results are that these workers were not hesitating to do things that could anger the management and attempted to obtain places for their meetings. They did delete the religious agenda at the meeting after a while. The major working class issues of eight hour day and voting right disappeared after harassments from the management. But the management did finally get the union on its knee, at least for this time.

    Den kvinnliga förebilden under 1800-talet: Kvinnoideal i tre svenska tidningar från år 1858–18992017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to inspect female ideals during the end of nineteenth-century in Sweden to get a greater understanding of the values that was recognized during the time. To accomplice this I will scrutinize three newspapers with different political standings and compare their descriptions of archetypal women.

    The three newspapers are the conservative Dalpilen, The more liberal Norrköpingskuriren and the feministic Idun. Dalpilen and Norrköpingskuriren will describe the two political sides of Sweden that was present at the time while Idun will represent the female thought of the ideals of their own gender as Idun was a newspaper for women and often written by women.

    I have utilized among other Conell and his masculinity theory and Yvonne Hirdmans Gender contract theory to get a better understanding for the century I have chosen to study and to get guidance for the material. Both these theories build on a society with strict gender roles which are applied to the nineteenth-century along with explanation in how archetypes are built up and what can affect them. This was something that I needed to keep in mind as a progressed through my study.

    The questions I have asked is what ideals are there in the newspapers and which qualities did they focus on. Are there a difference between the female ideals they describe? and if so, why are they different? The result of the study show that all three of the newspapers favors the mother as an ideal. Women was supposed to be a perfect mother and all the qualities for the ideal of women was to make them into an impeccable caretaker. This was the ultimate form of female. The difference between the newspapers lies in their flexibility in the qualities of that ideal.

    For example, the conservative Dalpilen thought that a woman should be a housewife and just focus on raising the children. That makes an ultimate mother. Norrköpingskuriren focused more on the working class and where the option to stay at home and raise chi

    ldren wasn’t always an option. As such, they preferred if the women stopped working when they got married but didn’t seem to demand that the wife should stay home. Idun on the other hand argued that working doesn’t really influence the female’s ability to raise her children and as such won’t remove their "femininity" as they said.
