    Birgitta and Bernard: Two Saints and Five Old Swedish Fragments in the Danish National Archives2017In: European Journal of Scandinavian Studies, ISSN 2191-9399, E-ISSN 2191-9402, Vol. 47, no 2, p. 263-290Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Danish National Archives in Copenhagen houses several thousand manuscript fragments, the remains of numerous works that were cut up and used in the bindings of later books. The majority of these fragments are written in Latin, Middle Low German, or Danish, although a few in Old Swedish also survive. Five of these Old Swedish fragments are published and discussed in this article. They contain parts of two of St Birgitta’s Revelations (Liber Caelestis and Revelationes Extravagantes) and of St Bernard’s A Rule of Good Life (Ad sororem modus bene vivendi in christianam religionem). The Birgittine texts are from an early stage of the retranslation process when compared to other extant versions and include several unique wordings that demonstrate the specific use of the original manuscript in a monastic environment. The Bernard fragments are one of just two extant versions and may predate the version in Stockholm, Royal Library, A 9; as such, they are an important witness to the propagation of the saint’s writings in Sweden.

    Muhammad’s Miracles: Science, Faith, and the Prophet’s Tricks in Medieval East Norse Texts2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I talk about the lives of the Prophet Muhammad found in vernacular saints’ lives (Old Swedish Legendary), devotional works (Consolation of the Soul), and travel descriptions (John Mandeville) from fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Denmark and Sweden. The paper focuses on stories about how Muhammad deceived people into believing that he was a Prophet using tricks, natural phenomena, and his alleged medical condition: trained animals to appear to worship him, used magnets to create a floating coffin, and epilepsy to give the impression of divine ecstasy.

    These lives of Muhammad are adaptations of works in Latin and German, while their presentation of Muhammad as a false prophet is traceable to Byzantine polemical authors, such as John of Damascus. The East Norse portrayal of Muhammad as a trickster owes a debt of gratitude to Gautier de Compiègne’s Otia de Machometi (before 1150). However, rather than the East Norse lives of Muhammad being free-standing works, they are found as integrated sections in collections of devotional and didactic works aimed at teaching and nurturing Christian piety in their readers. This is perhaps an unexpected textual context: why, for example, would a false Prophet be found in a collection of Christian saints’ lives? When the Qur’ān attributes no miracles to the Muhammad whatsoever, what is the reason for these Christian writers to do so and then to set about exposing them as false? Hermeneutical argumentation and strawman-polemics are key to understanding the purpose of “Muhammad’s miracles” among a readership that had little, if any, chance of ever coming into contact with Islam.

    Abstract [da]

    Artiklen præsenterer og diskuterer et pergamentfragment på Det Kongelige Bibliotek i København (Fragmentsamling, nr. 3230), ét blad af et nu tabt håndskrift. Det indeholder en mirakelberetning om en bispemorder, en fortælling der også findes i det berømte opbyggelsesværk Sjælens trøst. Fragmentet er dog ikke en overlevende rest af den store, tabte del af det danske Sjælens trøst-håndskrift (de to overlevende rester findes som Ups. C 529 og Holm. A 109); fragmentet hører hjemme i en anden redaktion eller snarere i en helt anden overleveringstradition.

    Beyond the Piraeus Lion: East Norse Studies from Venice2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    East Norse philology – the study of Old Danish, Old Swedish, and Old Gutnish – continues to attract scholarly attention from around the world. Beyond the Piraeus Lion comprises fourteen articles on a vast number of topics by researchers from Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, and the USA. They are based on a selection of the papers given at the Second International Conference for East Norse Philology held at Ca’Foscari University ofVenice in November 2015. The volume covers subjects ranging from codicology and material philology to text transmission and reception, from women’s literacy in medieval Sweden to studies of Old Danish lexicon, and from Bible translations to Old Swedish poetics. In all, there are five sections in the volume – Palaeography, Codicology, and Editing; Manuscript Studies; Vocabulary and Style; Literature and Writing; Bibles and Translations – that all demonstrate the breadth and vitality of East Norse philology. The book is the second volume published by Selskab for Østnordisk Filologi · Sällskap för östnordisk filologi, established in Uppsala in 2013.

    Odödliga monument: Återanvändning av megalitgravar2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Megalithic tombs that originally date back to the early to mid-neolithic are the oldest preserved monument that can be found in Scandinavia. The act of raising big stone structures for the dead shows that the monuments where build to last through time. Prehistoric people from different time periods have reused these monuments on different locations all over Europe. This paper focuses on the monuments in Sweden and it shows that the reuse of megalithic monuments appears in all regions where these monuments can be found. The different reasons to why people wanted to reuse these monuments are also discussed. The paper proposes that the reasons are religious and political. Political the monuments can give inheritance rights which granted land rights among other things.

    Vetenskapshistoriedisciplinens etiska rötter: Kulturkritik, idealism och dygdelära i George Sartons kamp om begreppet humanism2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker vetenskapshistorikern George Sartons (1884–1956) nyhumanism i ljuset av den kritik han riktade mot humanister och de brännande samhällsproblemen han såg i sin samtid. Tidigare forskning har tolkat Sarton som isolerad från samtida intellektuella diskussioner, poängterat Sartons idéers begränsade framgångar och tolkat dessa som ett förespråkande av enhetsvetenskap mer hemmahörande i 1800-talet. Dessa studier har inte i tillräckligt hög utsträckning uppmärksammat Sartons kritik av humanister som en begripliggörande kontext. Humanister kritiserades på grund av deras avståndstagande från vetenskaper resulterade i en verklighetsfrånvändhet som gjorde humanister till irrelevanta för samtiden. Undersökningen visar att Sartons nyhumanism framför allt förespråkade en etik och världsbild för att kunna hantera den tekniska moderniteten. Vetenskapshistoria var ett medel för att ingjuta goda moraliska karaktärsdrag i individer. Genom att fokusera på begreppet humanism synliggörs Sartons försök till att förskjuta betydelsen från klassicism mot antropocentrism för att formulera en samtidsrelevant ideologi.

    Hjälp alla så långt du förmår!: En undersökning av Arthur Schopenhauers etik2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of this thesis is the ethics of German 19th century philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. The study examines Schopenhauer’s ethics and investigates his criticism of the ethics of his older German colleague Immanuel Kant. By arguing that all true morally acceptable and good actions originate from compassion, Schopenhauer distinguishes his view from the deontological ethics held by Kant. The study focuses on Schopenhauer’s view on the basis of morals. Its purpose is to consider an ethical perspective that interconnect moral considerations with human empathy. By comparing the arguments presented by these two philosophers one can get a clearer view of the extent to which Schopenhauer’s criticism of Kant’s ethics is justified. In the analysis, five major parts of Schopenhauer’s criticism are identified and studied one by one. The findings suggest that Schopenhauer’s ethics and the ethics of Kant can be represented as two different ethical paradigms.

    En lysande fyrbåk i hednaverlden: Om förändringar i synen på de religiösa praktikerna, grupperna och subjekten i Helgelseförbundets missionsbrev från Kina 1891-1950.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    From the middle of the 19th century onwards the number of protestant missionaries in China increased tremendously. The evangelical revival movement played an important role in this development with pioneers like J. Hudson Taylor and his China Inland Mission (CIM) on the frontlines. The Swedish Holiness Union (SHU) decided to join CIM in the northern parts of China were the union established its missionary field in 1890. This essay aims to explore changes in how other religious practices, groups and subjects are constructed within SHU missionary letters from China published 1891-1950. The source material consists of missionary letters published in the Unions own periodical Trons Segrar 1891, 1928 and 1950. By basing the analysis on Laclau’s and Mouffe’s discourse theory the study will explore how different discursive formations change, affirm or undermine each other and how different religious practices, groups and subjects are constructed and characterized within a discursive framework.

    Be yourself but not too much: En studie om förändringen av sociala-medier och hur detta påverkar individens presentation av Identitet online och offline2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte är att få en bättre förståelse av hur utvecklingen i sociala-medier – dels en ökande del av digital interaktion i förhållande till samvaro ansikte mot ansikte och dels en förflyttning av interaktion från text till bilder – inverkar på individers presentation av sin identitet. Uppsatsen syftar också till att undersöka hur individer upplever skillnaden mellan olika plattformar och vad utveckling betyder för interaktionen mellan individer. Detta gjordes genom kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer samt en innehållsanalys av informanternas online-profiler på Instagram. För att diskutera fenomenet ur ett socialpsykologiskt perspektiv, används teorierna rörande interaktion genom Goffman, Baudrillards teori kring individernas varseblivning av realitet samt Giddens teori gällande modernitet och självidentifiering.

                         Resultatet av studien visar att sociala-medier är en stor del av individernas liv och förändringen av detta upplevs tydligt. Individerna är medvetna om att det finns en skillnad mellan online och offline realitet, dock inverkar online-realiteten på individernas liv och självuppfattning med en omfattande påtryckning. Interaktionen upplevs mer passiv och indirekt, vilket gör att individerna känner sig ensamma även då de har många vänner/följare online. Trenden mot perfektion på sociala-medier och samhällets press på individen skapar ett måste att vara online och hålla sig uppdaterad. Dessutom är sociala-medier en realitet där individer upplever en lättnad från offline-realiteten, då de kan välja vem dem vill interagera med och slipper det som känns obekvämt i offline-realiteten. I stort sätt uppfattas sociala-medier och förändringen från text till bild som något positivt, eftersom individerna känner sig mindre angripbara och tryggare inom den enklare bildbaserade applikationen Instagram.

    Excluded Associations, Violence of Language and Re-ideologisation in Anna Hallberg and Lars Mikael Raattamaa (Uteslutna associationer, Språkvåld och återideologisering hos Anna Hallberg och Lars Mikael Raattamaa)

    The purpose of this article is to study what the French linguist Jean-Jacques Lecercle identified as “the remainder of language” in his book The Violence of Language (1990), and how this is put into play in two poetry books from 2008, by the Swedish poets Anna Hallberg and Lars Mikael Raattamaa. By explicitly challenging a large number of conventions of language, typography, and poetry, these books raise critical issues on how the language system works. These issues specifically concern what parts and aspects of language are allowed into the linguistic system, and what parts and aspects are kept out. These regulatory mechanisms are demonstrated, and scrutinised, in these books — making them meta-critical, as well as ideology-critical. This scrutiny not only shows the relevance of identifying and understanding the mechanisms of exclusion that Lecercle identified among academic linguistics 25 years ago. It also brings them into contemporary society, where they – due to globalisation and technological development — have disseminated, and become part of almost everyone’s daily experience. The results of the article stress how this dissemination increases the societal relevance of the kind of scrutiny undertaken by Hallberg and Raattamaa, and how it can assist in re-ideologising language.

    The harmlessness of existence2017In: Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, ISSN 1386-2820, E-ISSN 1572-8447, p. 1-12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Can existence benefit or harm a person? I argue that it cannot. In order for existence to harm a person it has to be the case that existence is worse for the person than never existing. This claim could only be true if it is understood as a claim about the actual, extrinsic value of existence for a person. However, understanding harm (and benefit) in terms of actual extrinsic value comes at the cost of depriving benefits and harms of their normative relevance. I show that a person who is guided by promoting actual extrinsic value can face situations where an outcome is extrinsically better for her but where the same outcome would be extrinsically worse for her were it to obtain. A person who is guided by promoting extrinsic value will in such situations not be able to deliberate about what she should do, prudentially or morally. I conclude that extrinsic value is therefore not something we should be guided by when deliberating about what we should do, and that if harm and benefit is understood in terms of extrinsic value, then we should not be guided by these notions either.

    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.

    På Sysslomansgatan mötte jag Studentlivet: En rumsteoretisk undersökning av staden och studenten i Gun-Britt Sundströms Student -64.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen har som syfte att utifrån Gun-Britt Sundströms roman Student -64 (1966) undersöka hur en författare genom beskrivningar av platser och rum formulerar en stadsmyt och därmed även konstruerar en viss identitet för personerna inom den. Utgångspunkten var att det finns en viss myt om Uppsala som studentstad, och att denna skildras i bland annat skönlitteraturen. Genom att fokusera på myten om studentstaden Uppsala och identiteten som student har också frågan om vilken funktion myten om staden har för studenten varit i fokus.

    För att genomföra undersökningen har en motivstudie baserat på rumsliga teman genomförts, som resulterade i en kartläggning över vilka platser som förekommer i romanen samt hur ofta de nämns. Det teoretiska ramverket som användes bestod huvudsakligen av Henri Lefebvres teorier om socialt rum och hur vi skapar rum genom tre olika slags erfarenheter: fysisk, mental och social, som vi får antingen genom rumsliga praktiker, representationer av rum eller genom representationella rum.

    Resultatet av undersökningen visar att Sundström i Student -64 gestaltar ett antal platser i Uppsala där protagonisten Sagas rumsliga praktiker kommer till uttryck. Platserna relateras till Sagas sociala erfarenhet och det hon som kallar för ”uppsalastämning”, vilket är en del av den historiska myten om Uppsala som Sundström anknyter till.  Därmed bidrar hon till att befästa myten genom att bygga på det representationella rum som är studentstaden Uppsala i sin helhet, samtidigt som hon omformulerar myten i en modern tolkning genom att skapa nya representationella rum. Dessa rum visar sig också möjliggöra en viss studentidentitet, samt en utveckling inom denna som i sig bidrar till att myten kan fortsätta leva.

    Anthropological contributions to historical ecology: 50 questions, infinite prospects2017In: PLoS ONE, ISSN 1932-6203, E-ISSN 1932-6203Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the results of a consensus-driven process identifying 50 priority research

    questions for historical ecology obtained through crowdsourcing, literature reviews,

    and in-person workshopping. A deliberative approach was designed to maximize discussion

    and debate with defined outcomes. Two in-person workshops (in Sweden and Canada)

    over the course of two years and online discussions were peer facilitated to define specific

    key questions for historical ecology from anthropological and archaeological perspectives.

    The aim of this research is to showcase the variety of questions that reflect the broad scope

    for historical-ecological research trajectories across scientific disciplines. Historical ecology

    encompasses research concerned with decadal, centennial, and millennial human-environmental

    interactions, and the consequences that those relationships have in the formation

    of contemporary landscapes. Six interrelated themes arose from our consensus-building

    workshop model: (1) climate and environmental change and variability; (2) multi-scalar,

    multi-disciplinary; (3) biodiversity and community ecology; (4) resource and environmental

    management and governance; (5) methods and applications; and (6) communication and

    policy. The 50 questions represented by these themes highlight meaningful trends in historical

    ecology that distill the field down to three explicit findings. First, historical ecology is fundamentally

    an applied research program. Second, this program seeks to understand longterm

    human-environment interactions with a focus on avoiding, mitigating, and reversing

    adverse ecological effects. Third, historical ecology is part of convergent trends toward

    transdisciplinary research science, which erodes scientific boundaries between the cultural

    and natural.

    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.

    'My little wild fever-struck brother': Human and animal subjectivity in Hélène Cixous' Algeria2017In: International Journal of Philosophy and Theology, ISSN 2169-2327, E-ISSN 2169-2335, Vol. 78, no 4-5, p. 456-468Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the place of human and animal subjectivityin two autobiographically informed texts by Hélène Cixous. It takesher view on the word ‘human’ and the figure of Fips, the dog ofthe Cixous family, as a point of departure. By thinking through thisfigure, I argue, Cixous analyses the dehumanizing logic of colonialismand anti-Semitism in Algeria and develops her own responseto such kinds of political evils, arguing for human relationality andanimal corporeality. The article shows that Cixous’ meeting withFips creates a stigma that, belatedly, breaks through the barrierbetween herself and the dog; the reopening of the wound takesplace in a poetical writing that reveals an intense ‘animal humanity’formed by communal suffering, finiteness, and love. The lessonCixous learns from the memory of Fips the dog is how to become‘better human’. This becoming is also an assault on the falsehumanism of the colonial project and on racialized social exlusion.

    Traces of a Half-Forgotten Dog: Suffering and Animal Humanity in Hélène Cixous' Algerian Scenes2017In: Literature & Theology, ISSN 0269-1205, E-ISSN 1477-4623, Vol. 31, no 4, p. 420-431Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hélène Cixous’ engagement with animals is a significant but neglected aspect of her work. In this article I trace one specific character among her animals, Fips, a dog she had when she was living in Algiers during the late 1940s. By reflecting on this figure, I outline the way the dehumanising logic of colonialism and anti-Semitism are critiqued by Cixous. I lift up her themes of relationality and corporeality as constructive for animal studies. Taking the work of Jacques Derrida as a starting point, the article shows how Cixous’ primal encounter with Fips produces a wound that, belatedly, ruptures the barriers between herself and this dog; its dehiscence reveals Fips’ ‘profound animal humanity’ generated by shared suffering, finitude, and love. The lesson Cixous learns from revivifying the memory of this dog is, I suggest, how to become more human. The ‘humanity’ of the dog is the capacity to see and indeed love outside preconceived ideas: ‘Perhaps the irony is that we are never more human than when we are dogs.’ Becoming more human is an assault on the borders of racialised exclusion and a challenge to the false humanism of the colonial project.

    Every day struggles for Forest Sámi futures: A year with Henrik Andersson, reindeer herder in GällivareForest Sámi villageAt the UPPSAM spring symposium 2014 Henrik Andersson, reindeer herder in Gällivare Forest Sámi village(sameby), participated and presented along with film maker Petri Storlöpare the documentary “The LastGeneration?”. The film follows Henrik during a year 2012–2013, when he decided to live according to oldertradition. Henrik Andersson is besides working for the maintaining of Forest Sámi tradition and handicraftalso a frequent writer on Facebook and he is actively pursuing different issues of importance for the preservationof Sámi lands and waters for current reindeer herding and for future generations. May-Britt Öhmanhas with the approval of Henrik selected among his many Facebook updates over a year, starting fromJuly 7, 2014 until September 4, 2015. [facebook.com/henrik.andersson.982] The content in the updates isall from every day reflections, happy moments, to critique against the destructive exploitations of Sámi landsand waters. One recurrent theme is the struggle to safeguard reindeer grazing, calving and migration landsagainst wind power exploitations, at the moment pursued by the company Vasavind and also the state powercompany Vattenfall, on the lands of Gällivare forest Sámi village. The updates are most of the time written oncellphone and some smaller editing has been made for enhanced legibility. However, most of the text is thesame version as is available on Henrik’s open Facebook wall. The updates follows Facebook chronology,meaning that the latest are the first.

    Bilder som informationsbärare: En jämförande studie av bilder i arkiv2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines how images are used and evaluated in a Swedish archival context. Images as of today are very common in society. They are nearly everywhere, particularly in our phones and computers. Therefore the written word is slowly losing it's sovereignty as a carrier of information. With this background the study examines if the images role also have changed in an archival setting.

    The following work is a qualitative research study that examines three Swedish archives: the Regional State Archive in Uppsala, Swedish Labour Movement's Archives and Library in Stockholm and the Centre for Business History in Stockholm. Furthermore the study examines how the institutions organize images and how they make them accessible for the public. It also examines what role the image play as a carrier of information in the archive. In more general terms the study also investigates what function the image can have for people in society. The comparison of the archival institutions is a methodological foundation for this study. Semi- structured interviews were conducted with archivists from the three institutions and works as the main source. For the analysis this study uses document theory and a few concepts derived from Terry Cook's archival theory, namely evidence, memory, identity and community.

    In terms with the previous research made on the subject this study comes to the result that images have different terms for archiving than other materials, most specifically papers documents. The examined archival institutions are today using the same tools for organizing images as they use for other documents. This can have negative effects on the ability the image has as a carrier of information. In the long run this could cause the image to become a marginalized part of the archive as a whole.

    The conclusion this mater's thesis presents is that the image has a potential as a source of information. Especially for groups that aren't previously represented in the archive through traditional paper documents. The image may therefore contribute to the archival pluralism and diversity, as long as the images are treated with the terms they demand as an archival document.

    This is a two years master's thesis in Archival Science.

    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on the cooperation of the archive and the school. The theoretical framework is socio-cultural perspective. The main method used is qualitative interviews with employees at the archives. I have studied three different archives which, in cooperation with the school, conduct archival education. In addition to the interviews I have participated in two observations. The research found that there was a great interest in the school to participate in the archive's educational work. Factors such as stress for the teachers and too few archive educational resources adversely affect the archive education mission. The views look different, but the goal is to present archives to the students and provide a positive experience. The fact that archives are to be regarded as an obvious place of visit, was the democratic right of citizens, and that information is being discussed what the archives want to convey to archive education. The archival material used by the archives has a clear link with the curricula and places great emphasis on teaching source criticism.

    Stenålderskost: en kritisk granskning av metod, teori och tolkning2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years there has been discussion of the many health benefits of the paleodiet, a diet that consist of food that we are evolutionary and genetically adapted to consume. The agricultural revolution introduced mankind to dietary changes that did not suit our biology, and is now the main reason for the nutrition-based diseases in developed countries.

    The purpose of this paper is to review both the archaeological methods used to explain the paleodiet and the knowledge we have about our hunter-gatherer ancestors and to see if there is any evidence to claim that the paleodiet could be an answer to food-health related diseases. This paper will also discuss the different perspectives behind the many dietary changes in human evolution and how they reflect on man’s dietary conditions today.

    The material used for this research is based on studies in anthropology, biology, genetics and epidemiology. The theory behind this paper is based on the positivism knowledge founded on properties and relations between measurable studies. Based on interpretations by reason and logic this paper is concluded through deductive reasoning.

    The results show that food-related diseases and syndromes are absent from traditional hunter-gatherer societies and that they first start to manifest if a western-based diet is adopted. According to our evolutionary and biological structure, man is not adapted to consuming dairy or agricultural products and we are, in fact, genetically identical to our Paleolithic ancestors. Therefore, because we have the same dietary conditions as the paleo hunter-gatherer, we would be considerably more healthy if we adopted a Paleolithic based diet.

    Developing capacity for research and higher education takes time, especially in resource scarce environments. Equipping laboratories, building human capacity, and establishing research cultures at teaching oriented universities are complex and slow processes. This book focuses on the long-term cooperation with chemistry and physics research groups at universities in Sri Lanka and Thailand, provided by the International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University, Sweden. It traces and gathers experiences from graduated students and other collaborating partners from supported groups. It addresses questions of if, and how, capacity for research and higher education has developed over the decades of ISP support, and the possible effects, efficiency, sustainability and improvements of it.

    The First Islamic Chronicle: The Chronicle of Khalīfa b. Khayyāṭ (d. AD 854)2017In: Universal Chronicles in the High Middle Ages / [ed] Michele Campopiano; Henry Bainton, Boydell & Brewer, 2017, 1, p. 19-42Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Chronicle (Ar. Taʾrīkh) of Khalīfa b. Khayyāṭ (d. AD 854) was composed in the early-to-mid ninth century and is the oldest Islamic chronicle still extant. Its compiler was a scholar of Qurʾān and ḥadīth – that is, a scholar of both of the Qurʾānic revelation and of the ‘reports’ or ‘traditions’ about the Prophet Muḥammad and the earliest Muslims. Khalīfa lived and worked in the large southern Iraqi port city of Basra – at the time one of the foremost centres of learning in the Islamic world. His Chronicle is arranged annalistically by years of the lunar Hijri calendar, beginning, after a short introduction, with year one – the year of the Prophet Muhammad's emigration (hijra) from Mecca to Medina (AD 622) – and ending with year AH 232/AD 847. It covers, in summary fashion, the political and administrative history of the Muslim polity, from its origins in Medina at the time of the Prophet and under the first caliphs through to the Umayyad and Abbasid caliphates.

    Despite its early date, Khalīfa's Chronicle has received little attention in modern scholarship. Survey and textbook accounts tend to remark on its being the earliest surviving history in Arabic arranged chronologically, in contrast to earlier extant works which are structured thematically or arranged as biographical entries on individuals by generations. Modern historians have tended to dismiss it as telling us little or nothing that is not found in later, more famous works of the ninth century. It is, after all, much shorter than the surviving compendious histories produced in Iraq two or three generations later by al-Balādhurī (d. c. 892) and al-Ṭabarī (d. 923): al-Ṭabarī's History of Messengers and Kings (Taʾrīkh al-rusul wa-l-mulūk) is perhaps twenty times as long; al-Balādhurī's genealogically-arranged historical work, Genealogies of the Tribal Notables (Ansāb al-ashrāf), is perhaps about fifty times the length of Khalīfa's work.

    But although Khalīfa's Chronicle may not provide many facts not known from later works, his framing of the material and the context of its compilation are markedly different from other early histories. In other words, the Chronicle itself is a hitherto-overlooked historical fact that raises important questions about the origins and development of Arabic chronicle-writing and the different ways in which the early Muslims went about finding their place in history and politics.

Vidare arkeologiska undersökningar och analyser behövs för att klarlägga husens tidshorisont, funktion och relation till varandra. Är de skilda husen samtidiga eller förligger det kronologiska och/eller funktionella skillnader? Forskningsprojektet syftar även till att ge en ökad förståelse av de kronologiska och kontextuella relationerna mellan bildstensplats och gårdsmiljö genom seklerna både vid Buttle Änge och generellt via jämförande studier av andra bildstensplatser och stengrundsmiljöer.

    Differently different?: – Changing the perception of ‘US & THEM’2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study uses a longitudinal case study approach to observe change in ‘US and THEM-thinking’. Its purpose is to increase awareness of identity processes among participants and to test if the Attitude-Behaviour-Context-Triangle (the ABC-triangle) may be a way to achieve that. The ABC-triangle is modified as an ‘identity-analysis tool’ rather than a ‘conflict-analysis tool’.               Aspects relating to recognition of multiple identity affiliations compared to singular-identity categorisation is of interest. The traditional identity theories suggest that high identity salience increase singular-identity categorisation and thereby increase positive emotions for ingroup and negative emotions for outgroup. This study is partly based on the social identity perspective but complements it with Thoits’ identity-accumulation hypothesis and Hogg’s uncertainty-identity theory. Hogg’s theory locates uncertainty reduction as a main contributor to singular-identity categorisation together with its’ implied negative consequences. Hogg’s solutions are located both in multiple identity affiliations, as do Thoits, and in perceived cognitive ability to deal with uncertainty. This study emphasises awareness of identity processes to be the single most important factor for decreasing negative views of ‘THEM’. Overlooked in the more dominant theories of this area, it finds that recognition of multiple identity affiliations influences the perceived singular-identity terms imposed by an ‘US and THEM-situation’. Thereby, challenging imposed identity-restrictions and perceived intergroup competition. Furthermore, it questions the theoretical importance given to identity salience in previous research and theories since high identity salience, in this case, does not equal a singular-identity categorisation or increase negative views of ‘others’.
