    Abstract [en]

    The article deals with the question of exclusivism, inclusivism and pluralism in the history of Indian religions. It tries to demonstrate that there is a kind of constant switch between the three models of relating one's own religion to other religions. At every stage, religions can turn tolerant or intolerant. Inclusivism and pluralist theology did not necessarily prevent intolerance.

    Abstract [en]

    The text reflects the present situation of the academic subject of indology between "hardcore" philology and some form of interdisciplinary regional studies (South Asian Studies). It also relates indology's identity crisis to present trends in humanities and in cultural studies (Kulturwissenschaften) in general. The article argues in favour of some form of regional studies with a strong basis in language aquisition.

    “Who am I?” : : On the narrativity of identity andviolence in Sheila Rohekar’s novel Tāvīz2012In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 60, p. 49-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    “Communal violence” and “communalism” have long been central tropes of progressivist Hindi prose writing. Tāvīz (The Amulet), a contemporary Hindi novel by Sheila Rohekar, is a recent and outstanding example within this literary tradition. The plot revolves around a mixed Hindu-Muslim love marriage and the complications this socially disrespected alliance leads to, culminating in the consecutive murder of both husband and wife, and their son. The focal point of the novel is the reconstruction of the identity crisis of the son, who – having a Hindu mother and a Muslim father – becomes a militant Hindutva activist and is killed during an agitation for the construction of the Rama-birth temple in Ayodhya. Throughout the novel, the recovered diary of the boy’s great-grandfather plays an important role as a historical narrative linking up the present with the past. The diary is used to provide constant flashbacks to generations earlier, when identities were still more “fuzzy” and open to inter-communal relationships compared with the present. The present is perceived as a catastrophic decline. Nevertheless, even then the writer of the diary expresses his frustration about independent India’s inability to put an end to the evils in society, and particularly to communalism. Sheila Rohekar is probably the sole living Indian-Jewish author in the world of contemporary Hindi writing.

    Wie frauenfeindlich ist Indien?: Ein (männlicher) Essay zur Gewalt an Frauen und an anderen Menschenin Indien2013In: Suedasien, ISSN 0933-5196, Vol. 33, no 1, p. 78-81Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Following the case of the brutal raping and death of an Indian student of medicine and the public outcry in India on this event in December 2012, the Western discourse on women in South Asia is more than ever before focussed on the question whether South Asia in general is a dangerous space for women. The article goes into the intricacies of this discourse, relating violence against women to structural forms of violence, but at the same time trying to avoid stereotyping South Asia as particularly misogyn.

    Celebrating with Words: Studies in the Rhetorical Works of the Gaza School2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the School of Gaza, a circle of rhetoricians in Late Antique Palestine. Special attention is paid to Choricius and Procopius of Gaza, and in particular to their epideictic works. The chapters of the study focus on the individual works, for which are offered a summarising analysis and a close reading with special regard to form, key terms and self-reflexive comments.

    The overarching question is how the Gaza rhetoricians, working within established rhetorical forms, adapted their oratory to contemporary concerns and ideology while at the same time remaining true to their classical models. The study discusses some of the strategies employed and shows that the Gaza authors and especially Choricius tend to expand the oratorical forms by assigning contemporary features (such as remarks on Christian education) to separate sections, which are added to the traditional sections. The concepts are thus juxtaposed rather than integrated and the paradigms to some extent kept apart. Another strategy is to select from traditional topoi and exempla those that best suit contemporary mentality and elaborate on these while downplaying others.

    The study also investigates Choricius’ views on the sophist’s role in society, both as a distributor of recompense (amoibe) to the philanthropic elite, and as a servant of society, providing the citizens with simultaneous entertainment and edification. In this capacity, the orator complements other professions, such as the physician or mime actor. Choricius’ view on soldiers, on the other hand, is basically negative, and in his encomia to military men, he attempts at redefining their martial task of overcoming an enemy into a task of maintaining peace and handling crises.

    Issues of imitation and representation are also addressed. These involve the relationship between actual deeds and their rhetorical representation, similarities between actors and rhetoricians, and the psychological impact of ecphrases on an audience.

    On the basis of the writings of P. Lemerle, C. Rapp and Chr.

Rapp's "antiquarian" stance and Høgel's "ideological" reading should, according to the author, be possible to reconcile.

    A grammatical sketch of Ngarla: A language of Western Australia2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis the basic grammatical structure of normal speech style of the Western Australian language Ngarla is described using example sentences taken from the Ngarla – English Dictionary (by Geytenbeek; unpublished). No previous description of the language exists,  and since there are only five people who still speak it, it is of utmost importance that it is investigated and described. The analysis in this thesis has been made by Torbjörn Westerlund, and the focus lies on the morphology of the nominal word class. The preliminary results show that the language shares many grammatical traits with other Australian languages, e.g. the ergative/absolutive case marking pattern. The language also appears to have an extensive verbal inflectional system, and many verbalisers.

    Finite verbs in Ngarla (Pama-Nyungan, Ngayarta)2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis provides a description of finite verbs in the moribund Australian language Ngarla (Pama-Nyungan, Ngayarta). Ngarla has previously been spoken in the Pilbara region of northwestern Western Australia, and all the linguistic material used in the thesis has the late Ngarla elder Alexander (Nyapiri) Brown as its source. No study with the scope and detail of the current work has previously been presented for this language.

    Verbal finiteness is defined as a discrete binary phenomenon, with finite verbs occurring in main clauses and taking TAM (tense/aspect/mood) and person marking, and infinite verbs occurring in subordinate clauses. The Ngarla finite verbs are placed in a larger grammatical context, in that word classes of the language are described, as are the noun phrase, predicate types and word order. The 65 known simple verb roots are listed, and the phonology and prosody of Ngarla are introduced briefly.

    Twelve TAM categories occuring in Ngarla main clauses are discussed. They are described as marking four different tenses; present, past, remote past and future tense. In the past, three different aspectual distinctions are also made. There are three modal categories, one epistemic and two deontic. In three categories, temporal and modal information are also combined. However, person markers exist for some persons only.

    Complex verbs, consisting of a non-verbal root, most frequently a nominal, and a verbalising affix, are described as presenting a complicated picture. Not only are no less than ten verbalisers employed to create complex verbs, some of which mark the domain of telicity, there is also, with most verbalisers, a mismatch between the phonological and the grammatical word. Quite a large number of verbs also appear to be complex verbs, although the non-verbal root is not a known Ngarla nominal. Discussed in the thesis are also a smaller number of zero verbalised verbs and verbs that at the time of writing lack a clear analysis.

    Ngarla finite verbs are shown to take two valency decreasing derivations, the reflexive and the antipassive, the latter of which is restricted in use. The very restricted valency increasing derivation is of the causative type.

    The basic case marking of Ngarla, a language of Western Australia.2009In: Multilingualism, Proceedings of the 23rd Scandinavian Conference of Linguistics. / [ed] Anju Saxena & Åke Viberg, Uppsala: Uppsala universitet , 2009, p. 115-126Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to describe the basic case marking in Ngarla (Pama-Nyungan, Ngayarta) - a previously understudied Australian language. Basic case marking – the marking of core clausal constituents - is understood to comprise marking on intransitive subject (S), transitive subject (A), and transitive object (P). Some information will also be provided about peripheral case markers; dative, purposive, instrumental, and aversive. This paper will show that the marking of core clausal functions is complex in Ngarla, and that the peripheral case marking is typologically interesting in several respects. The marking of dative and possessive have for example merged in Ngarla, and the language also appears to have a separate aversive suffix, something that is quite unusual in Australian languages.

    Verb Classification in Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan)2017In: Australian Journal of Linguistics, ISSN 0726-8602, E-ISSN 1469-2996, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 328-355Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, it is argued that Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan), an under-studied language of the Pilbara region of northwestern Australia, is a verb classifying language of the type described by, for example, McGregor. Verb classifying languages are found in the north of Australia, but the phenomenon has previously not been recognized in languages of the northwestern Pilbara region. The Ngarla verb classifying system is described as being a highly grammaticalized one. Historical sources of the second part of the verb compound, the inflecting verbs, are sought, and short comparisons are also made to Martuthunira and Yinjibarndi (both Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan).
