    A moderate excess: Argumentation and conceptual change in the luxury debate in Swedishdissertations, 1722–17792016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Research into the luxury debate in 18th century Sweden has focused on poetry and literature, the wording of decrees and the minutes of the Swedish riksdag. One source material largely left unexplored is the body of dissertations published by Swedish universities of the time. Not only is this an unfortunate omission as the universities were important intellectual centres, but also because they had a distinct culture, heavily influenced by Latin and the classics, in which luxury condemnations played a pivotal role. Building on the notion that ideas are best studied as arguments in debates, this master’s thesis examines twelve dissertations published in Sweden in the years 1722–1779 using models of conceptual change and argumentation analysis as theoretical approaches. The results indicate that the academic debate on luxury, through its focus on classical antiquity and conceptual definition, distinguished itself from other contemporary Swedish contributions to the debate, and that the interpretation of its characteristics must proceed from both the dissertation genre and the learned culture of university. The investigation furthermore stresses the importance of the university as a venue for reception of ideas in the latter part of the Early Modern Period and emphasises the dissertations as a central medium in this process.

    Uppfostrans fördelning och praktik mellan föräldraskap och lärare: Föräldraskapets och lärarens fostransansvar tillskrivet av Barnavårdsnämnden i Sundsvall 1913-19242017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine the schoolteachers and parents distribution of the responsibilities of the upbringing of children. To do so my aim is to examine what responsibilities was attributed to the schoolteachers as well as the parents and how the responsibilities could take shape. By utilizing protocols from the Childcare committee 1913-1924 (Barnavårdsnämnden) my aim is to link the questions to the material and examine how this manifested within the committee. I also examined if the committee applied a certain gender construction on the parenting.

    I have applied a power perspective derived from Foucault aswell as the usage of Durkehims and Marx theories about the schools role in society and a gender perspective developed by Joan Scott and Yvonne Hirdman.

    The results of the study shows that schoolteachers possessed a position of power where their responsibilities over the social upbringing of the pupils reached beyond the confinements of the schools. The schoolteacher was placed with disciplinary responsibilities and was expected to help raise pupils of high morality. Teachers held a high role of participation in the work of the committee and was expected to hold insights of their pupils home situations. The parents showed to be neglected far more in comparison with the teacher but parenthood was nonetheless expected to hold responsibilities. However, parents was not allowed to interfere with the responsibilities of the teacher whereas the teachers role was not constricted to the interior of the school. Regarding mother- and fatherhood the study shows that the mother was given a clear role of parenting while the fathers function was more of an authoritarian background figure. The father was expected to provide for the family and the mother to care for the upbringing.

    The study proved that the committee was in a position of power where they could affect the tasks of parenthood. Meanwhile the committee granted schools and teachers positions of power where the teacher’s professional role extended beyond the schools. Within the sphere of parenthood a position of power was showing whereas the mother was attributed a larger responsibilities over the children’s upbringing but with the father acting as the authority of the family.

    Subjectivity of the Ainu People Described in the Book ‘Nibutani’, Edited by Kaizawa Tadashi: A New Discovery and Approach to Ainu Research2014In: Re: Mindings: Co-Constituting Indigenous, Academic, Artistic Knowledges, Uppsala: The Hugo Valentin Centre, Uppsala University , 2014, p. 17-25Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ainu studies still lack an inside perspective from the Ainu themselves though the importance of such perspective has been recognized for a deeper understanding of the Ainu by a few Ainu and Wajin [ethnic Japanese] postmodern scholar. To begin with, Ainu “self telling history” have been considered by researchers of Ainu studies to be “non-existent.” In other words, it can be said that the very act of dealing with modern history in relation to the Ainu by those materials was under a taboo for both the Ainu and the Wajin.

    This article demonstrates that a history book of the Nibutani Community entitled “Nibutani” edited by Kaizawa Tadashi in cooperation with local residents is a rare ex- ample of modern Ainu history compiled by the Ainu themselves. The book covers all the details of each family with family trees though the Ainu hardly confessed them- selves as Ainu under severe discrimination at the time. Further most of its lifestories were collected through the interviewing of those families by Kaizawa himself. As far as the contents are concerned, some stories are related to the Ainu, whereas others are seemingly related to their personal life. Thus the book presented a variety of stories that represent the then lives of the local residents in the Nibutani Community.

    At the moment when ‘Nibutani’ was published the Ainu did not voluntari- ly talk about their own history, and neither were expected to do so. ‘Nibutani’, which was completed by Kaizawa, connected the individually divided histories to each other, and made clear the relationships between the individuals and the community. As a result, the local residents in the Nibutani Community have ap- preciated this book for highlighting their own perspectives on their local history.

    The Book of Kindness: Social Reformers Use of Kindness: 1760-18002017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the English socio-cultural landscape of the late eighteenth-century, the concept of kindness inhabited a place of importance for its proponents. For kindness was regarded as actions derived from the capacity of humans to do good. Which resulted in the experience and creation of good qualities, situations, and interactions. Kindness’ dictates allowed for its followers to argue the need to encourage better behavioural qualities in others. The dictates of kindness that allowed for this regulating ability came around due to the tightly entwined religious and social tenets of kindness. In the religious sphere, kindness was tied to being Christian through the ‘Law of Kindness.’ The ‘Law of Kindness’ argued that Christians must show kindness to every human being and creature despite everything. Christian theologians argued that kindness is part of humanity, which must be shown through the correct actions, mannerisms, and feelings of everyday life. Kindness fit neatly into the culture of sensibility and its associated philosophies of moral and sensibilities. In the social sphere proponents argued that kindness acted as a means of reinforcing social hierarchy and behavioural boundaries of English society. This occurred through dictates to people showing kindness and infuse kindness into their behaviour that varied according to social position and gender.

    Löfte, tvist och försoning: Politikens spelregler i 1300-talets Norden2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to explain how politics in 14th century Scandinavia were structured by a set of rules or norms of conduct – rules which were neither codified nor enforced by any outside agency, yet had a very real impact on the patterns by which political action was conducted. Taking inspiration from historical anthropology, the study sets out to analyze the ways in which political tensions and relationships, primarily within the royal elite, were negotiated in various situations. The source material – mainly letters of treaties, but also contemporary literary sources – are treated as remains of political communication within a common discursive framework.

    The findings of the study go against some established notions about politics in the 14th century that are prevalent in current Scandinavian research. On the whole, patterns of political behaviour during the period show great similarities to those of the earlier Middle Ages, despite the discontinuity implied by the idea of the 13th century as the era of "state formation" in Scandinavia. Rather, the kings and princes of the 14th century appear to have been ruled by quite similar norms of behaviour to those of their predecessors, albeit on a more complex scale.

    The concepts of peace and justice are shown to have been central to the way that political action was legitimized. No functional difference can be shown to have been made between "feudal" or personal relations, and those of the state. Peace was conceived as a state of harmony, which could only be achieved through the establishment of mutual positive bonds, and an active striving for justice. The latter was achieved, both with the aid of mediators and negotiators, and through the demonstration of force, in patterns largely similar to the practice of feuding. Likewise, acts of supplication and reconciliation are shown to have played an active part in the way that political relations were reified during the process of ending an armed conflict.

    Studenten, absolutisten och alkoholen: En analys av debatten kring studenternas alkoholkonsumtion på studentnationerna i Uppsala mellan 1926–19352017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen har undersökt hur debatten om studenternas alkoholvanor och nationernas alkoholservering i Uppsala såg ut mellan åren 1926–1935 i studenttidningarna Ergo, Polstjärnan och ett begränsat nationsmaterial. Alkoholforskningen i Sverige i sig är av ett stort omfång men detta område är relativt outforskat. Arbetet har även behandlat skriften ”De akademiska dryckessederna” av Axel Axelman då denna kom att kretsa kring nationernas alkoholservering.  Slutligen undersöktes ifall debatten präglades av konflikter i relationen mellan de studenter som var absolutister och de som inte var det. Utifrån en argumentationsanalys av pro et contra modellen så gavs följande resultat.

    Debatten kom framförallt bestå av motargument som svar på de krav på torrläggning och hårdare restriktioner som krävdes för studenterna och nationerna. Argumenten för dessa krav var alkoholens destruktiva påverkan på studentens ekonomi, studentkulturen, samt andra samhällsgrupper. Även argument som hanterande studenternas traditioner och den yttrade glorifiering av alkoholen, genom hänvisning till dels sångböcker eller studenthistorian med gluntarna, lyftes fram som pro argument för torrläggning. Motargumenten kom att påpeka att sådana krav skulle förvärra situationen gällande studenternas alkoholkonsumtion. Studentnationerna argumenterades även för att ha en positiv uppfostrande roll, något som skulle kunna vara i fara om kraven gick igenom. Studentkulturen kom antingen att försvaras, eller så argumenterades att dess förfall berodde på nymodigheter som kavajskutt eller gasquer. Debatten kom även präglas av argument för att studenten var orättvist behandlad från flera håll.

    Resultatet visar också på att debatten hade tendenser av konflikter mellan absolutister och icke absolutister där det var framförallt nykteristerna som var de utsatta. Detta kunde bestå av skällsord eller att nervärderande agerande som kopplades samman med nykterister.  Studien visar även på att Axel Axelmans skrift fick till viss del ett positivt bemötande då vissa ansågs den nyttig i upplysningssyfte samt att den ansågs påvisa problemen med de akademiska alkoholsederna.

    Dock kom majoriteten av artiklarnas bemötande av skriften att vara negativt ställda då skriften anklagades för att vara falsk, innehålla felciteringar, dra felaktiga slutsatser och måla upp en felaktig bild gentemot verkligheten.

    Sociological knowledge and colonial power in Bombay around the First World War2011In: British Journal for the History of Science, ISSN 0007-0874, E-ISSN 1474-001X, Vol. 44, no 4, p. 533-548Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By the turn of the twentieth century a distinct 'social domain' - along with its constituent parts, problems and internal dynamics - was turned into a political entity, and a concern for state bureaucracies existed across the industrializing world. Specific motivations for this trend may have varied from location to location, but included arguments for higher industrial productivity and less political discontent, often intertwined with a humanitarian impulse in calls for better housing, expanded public health or improved working conditions. As has been well documented, the politicization of the social domain in early twentieth-century Britain owes much to the consolidation of British sociology as a distinct discipline. Yet while the link between the rise of social politics and sociology has been established with regard to Britain, little has been said about the occurrence of this coupling elsewhere in the twentieth-century British Empire. This article aims to rectify that omission by showing the interplay between newly raised social concerns of the colonial administration in the Bombay Presidency, Western British India, and the establishing of sociological research within the borders of the Presidency around the time of the First World War. The article will explore how the colonial administration in Bombay planned to meet new demands for sociological knowledge in colonial state policy, how sociology was subsequently introduced into the Presidency as a research subject, and how new sociological methods were applied in actual colonial government.

    Indian Revolutionaries Abroad: Revisiting their Silent Moments2014In: Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History, ISSN 1532-5768, E-ISSN 1532-5768, Vol. 15, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I relate Indian revolutionaries Virendranath Chattopadhyaya’s and Lala Har Dayal’s experiences of exile in Sweden to recent attempts to reformulate perspectives on Indian anti-colonial protest.  These attempts have in various ways focused on the global dimension of Indian anti-colonialism, showing how displaced Indian intellectuals and activists connected outside the Subcontinent, to labour for the freedom of India.  While appreciating the need for a fresh approach to studies of anti-colonial movements, this article issues a note of caution.  Several recent studies treat life in exile as one of connectivity and creativity.  In fact, connectivity becomes so important for these studies that it is only when in conversation with others sharing their objective that the views of Indian activists are included. Yet, many exiles lived long periods nearly or actually disconnected from the movement of which they wished to form a part.  Such moments of silence are wishfully glossed over in the emerging literature. By way of revisiting Har Dayal and Chattopadhyaya in Sweden, I suggest that periods of silence or disconnection are important, simply because they existed, and formed a decisive part of the reality of exile.  By omitting them, one risks romanticising exile, and subjecting experiences of displacement to academic programmatic concerns, however noble the cause.

    ”The Polish Political Drama”: Strategic Intelligence Assessments of the situation in Poland in 1981 and 19822014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ”The Polish Political Drama”

    Strategic Intelligence Assessments of the situation in Poland in 1981 and 1982

     

    The present study examines two examples, or products of Cold War strategic intelligence relating to the crisis situation that occurred in Poland at the beginning of the 1980s, namely:

    SNIE 12.6-81, 30 January 1981: Poland’s Prospects Over the Next Six Months – Special National Intelligence Estimate

    SNIE 12.6-82, 1 September 1982: Poland’s Prospects Over the Next 12 to 18 Months – Special National Intelligence Estimate

    I analyse the Special National Intelligence Estimates from 1981 and 1982 which assess Poland’s Prospects and investigate what the documents might tell us about this fragment of the Cold War and I assess the documents’ value as historical source material. I hope to bring to light the value of intelligence documents in historical research which I believe could enable a better understanding of not only the Cold War but potentially any fragment of history to which such documents might exist. The methodology in this study is a qualitative problem-driven content analysis. My operative questions are:

    1. How do the Special National Intelligence Estimates assess, perceive and describe the situation in Poland?

    2. Is there any change or development in the interpretation of the situation between 1981 and 1982?

    As I look at the documents’ value as historical sources and investigate what knowledge they can provide the study of history my auxiliary questions are:

    3. What aspects are included in the analysis of the situation?

    4. Are some aspects given more importance than others?

    My results show that there is a change in the interpretation between the two Estimates. The conflict and its participants are not entirely the same nor is the perspective on the conflict and its participants the same. SNIE 12.6-81 is focused on Soviet and the regime and their perspectives whereas SNIE 12.6-82 is more focused on the population and Jaruzelski. I perceive a change in sympathy and also how both Solidarity, society and the regime are perceived. In the first SNIE Solidarity and the Polish people are perceived as a threat to public order whereas in the second SNIE the sympathies are with Solidarity and the Polish people who suffer under a strict regime.

    The documents provide us with information about what would have been perceived as urgent and significant enough to be investigated. They can also provide us with information about the reasoning behind policies, decisions and responses at the time. What the documents can give us access to is part of the blueprint behind the outcome which is essential for a more complete picture of any fragment of history.

    Historien i politiken: Historieanvändning i norsk och svensk EU-debatt 1990-19942006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this dissertation the use of history in public debate in Norway and Sweden in relation to membership in the European Union (EU) 1990–1994 is examined. The purpose is to contribute with new knowledge about the relationship between politics and writing history, as well as describe the role of history in national and other identities. The analysis is both quantitative and qualitative. Historical narratives are re-constructed from the history used by the political figures when they argued for or against EU membership. The narratives relate to the political subjects which were in the limelight in connection with the question of EU, as well as preconceptions about Norwegian, Swedish and European identity.

    The dissertation shows that history is a multifaceted rhetorical tool in the political debate. In Sweden it was the policy of national security which was debated from a historical perspective. In it the debaters also used several examples from European history. In Norway, history entered the debate in connection with issues relating to sovereignty and democracy. In comparison with the Swedish EU debate, European history was drawn on less in Norway.

    Historical narratives of identity appearing in the EU debate show structural similarities, but at the same time differ in significant aspects. In a comparison the Norwegian national narrative seems unequivocal and well defined. It is retrospective due to its main component being the development of democracy in 19th century Norway. The Swedish national narrative is very clearly based on a notion of progress and continuous development, both as regards economy and democracy, and it is the history of the 20th century which stands in focus. In Sweden the constructions of the past separated according to party political lines, and the content of the national narrative was very much subject to debate.

    Kings and favourites: politics and sexuality in late medieval Europe2017In: Journal of Medieval History, ISSN 0304-4181, E-ISSN 1873-1279, Vol. 43, no 3, p. 298-319Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the use of discursive sodomy' in political critique against five late medieval monarchs and their favourites. Sources from Castile, England and Sweden reveal common themes that recur. Contemporary sources frequently stated that the king's love for his favourite was excessive and beyond measure; that the favourite was always by the king's side and thereby hindered others from approaching him. Critics further claimed that the king showed no moderation in his generosity toward the favourite and that the difference in rank between the two men made their relationship suspicious. This paper argues that all four themes included allusions to same-sex desire with the purpose of implying that the natural order and hierarchies were put in jeopardy. The main issue at hand was that the king had been seduced or even bewitched and therefore was no longer in control. He had let another man dominate him.

    En splittrad gemenskap: Nationalföreningen mot emigrationen ur ett svensk-amerikanskt perspektiv2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kring sekelskiftet 1900 hade emigrationen från Sverige till Amerika pågått i ett halvt sekel, och resulterat i ett stort antal svenskar och svenskättlingar på andra sidan Atlanten. 1903 nådde utflödet ett kritiskt läge, och emigrationsdebatten intensifierades på flera plan i samhället. Frågor om vad emigrationen och den svensk-amerikanska gruppen betydde för Sveriges väl blev brännande ämnen, inte minst mot bakgrund av de nationalistiska strömningar som genomsyrade dåtidens Europa. Vid denna tid bildades Nationalföreningen mot emigrationen, en sammanslutning som ville värna om fosterlandets resurser och verka för en samlad svensk identitet genom emigrationsbekämpning. 

    Föreningens visioner i emigrationsfrågan var tydliga; utvandringen skulle stoppas och svenskarna samlas inom landet.  Det är dock inte lika tydligt hur svenskarna i USA ställde sig till deras verksamhet. Hur bemöttes Nationalföreningen, dess förgrundsgestalt Adrian Molin och de uttalade ambitionerna att verka för återinvandring? Hur såg man på föreningens framställningar av svensk-amerikaner, och vad kan detta säga om hur utvandrade svenskar såg på sin nationella identitet och relation till Sverige under denna tid? Den här uppsatsen tar utgångspunkt i dessa frågor, och studerar svensk-amerikanernas åsikter kring Nationalföreningen mot emigrationen utifrån teorier om föreställd gemenskap och nationellt identitetsskapande.

    The Devils of History: Understanding Mass-violence Through the Thinking of Horkheimer and Adorno – The Case of Cambodia 1975-19792016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Why does mass-violence happen at all? This paper takes the first steps to establish a model to answer this question and explain extreme mass-violence as a phenomenon. This paper seeks to fill a gap in the field of research, in which models exist to explain the phenomenon of violence, with cases of genocide being seen as problems or exceptions, and as such researched as individual cases rather than as part of a wider phenomenon. This paper uses a selected part of the writings of Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer to establish the basis for a model to explain extreme-cases of mass-violence. The Five-Pillar Model includes 5 social elements - (1) Culture Industry (2) Mass-Media (3) Propaganda (4) Dehumanization (5) Ideological Awareness. When these pillars all reach a high enough level of severity, conditions enable elites to use scapegoating - to divert revolutionary attention to a specific puppet group, resulting in extreme mass-violence. The Five-Pillar Model is then used to analyze an empirical case - Cambodia 1975-1979 and shows how these pillars all existed in an extreme form in that case. This paper presents scapegoating as a possible explanation for the Cambodian case.

    From underwater boat to submarine – The development of the Swedish submarine service 1945-1960

    The scope of this essay is the development of the Swedish submarine service during the period 1945-1960. The aim is to answer the following questions:

    - What kind of new technology did Sweden acquire when salvaging the German type XXI submarine off Gothenburg at the end of World War II?

    - In what respect did this technology differ from that of the Royal Swedish Navy and did it subsequently contribute to the tactical and operational development?

    - What tactical and operational development was accomplished between 1945-1960?

    The timeframe, 1945-1960, was chosen since this is when the analysis of the salvaged type XXI submarine and related effects was conducted. Furthermore, it is also during this time that the Swedish submarine service is beginning to evolve as a result of the new knowledge mentioned above and the experiences made by both the allies and the Germans during World War II.

    The theoretical framework primarily refers to the theories on naval warfare by Sir Julian Corbett. Here the “Fleet in being” and his methods for viewing command have been deemed to be of primary interest, also the definition of “basic capabilities” applied by the Swedish Armed Forces is referred to in order to simplify certain matters to the reader.

    In conclusion, the technology acquired from the Germans provided Sweden not only with new actual technology but also a preview of the coming modern submarine and underwater warfare. The new technology and the experiences were implemented into the submarine service contributed to the fact that the Swedish submarines over a period of ten years developed from being underwater boats to actual submarines and subsequently contributed to the Swedish naval warfare capability during the Cold War.

    Abstract

    The history of all time? is a study of what the curriculum in history 1a1 (Gymnasieskola 2011) de facto means for the subject in terms of content and historical views. The essay begins with a brief presentation of the topic and then explains various linguistic and semantic interpretation models retrieved by philosophers like Saussure, Russell and Wittgenstein which will be used in the actual analysis of the curricula and the National Agency for Education comments on them. In order to show how historical views is associated with the concept of knowledge is also given a display of various epistemological schools. The actual text analysis shows that there is great confusion in the curriculum since many concepts are not defined, or given different content at different times. The analysis also shows that the curriculum advocates a dialectical view of history with elements of historicism but fails to show alternative perspectives on history.

    Keywords: history, curriculum, view of history, semantics, text analysis, historicism, chronology

    Kampen om befolkningen: Den svenska nationsformeringens utveckling och sociopolitiska förutsättningar ca 1780–18602011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to problematize the western type of nation formation by characterizing and explaining the Swedish process of national identity construction during the Age of Revolution. Thus, the thesis sets out to investigate the political-hegemonic process of identity formation, redefinition and struggle between different political forces. In practise, the thesis develops a typology over different ideological identity projects according to their object of identity formation and their political content. Instead of classifying the projects into civic or cultural types of nationalisms, the scheme of official and counter-hegemonic ideological projects are used. The thesis also sets out to explain the character of the process studied. This is done by analyzing the socio-political conditions of existence of the different national ideological projects. This includes their relationship to the state, their social milieus and the social composition of the agents of nationalization. The thesis shows that the Swedish process can be characterized as a constant battle over the population: a battle over the national self-understanding amongst different layers of the population.  The explanation of this character has to do with two existing conditions. Firstly, the existence of a state that supported some identity projects and prohibited others. The state produced a sphere of contest by, partially, allowing the establishment of a sphere of political communication. It also acted as an authority by facilitating the different agents with the political language of nationalism as the main arena of social struggle. The other important condition was the increasing economic modernization, which caused both social mobilization and differentiation – the pre-conditions for intra-class conflicts and inter-class conflicts. In the end this thesis argues, in contrast to the modernist theories in the field, which has underpinned the importance of social communication and state- or bourgeois-led cultural integration, that Sweden, as one of the so-called old continuous nations, was not a top-down project during this particular era. It was a project created from the top as well as from below – inside as well as outside the objects of national politics. It is this simultaneousness that is the main feature of identity formation. And, its explanation lies in the emerging liberal class society as a difference- and community-machine. Consequently, the thesis problematizes the common picture of how and why people became nationals in the western states during the great transformation.

    Det mångsidiga verktyget: elva utbildningshistoriska uppsatser2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    År 1764: den 17-årige Lars Olofsson bestraffas av det svenska rättssystemet. Han förses med halsjärn inför ”en hel samling ungdom, som med tjenlig förestälning förmanades”.

    År 2001: en akademiker ur den svenska medelklassen studerar sin släkts historia.

    Vad binder samman dessa två händelser, som vid första påseende verkar så olika?

    Svaret är utbildning. Bestraffningen av Lars Olofsson utformades i fostrande syfte: åskådarna skulle lära sig något av straffet. Släktforskaren, å andra sidan, utbildar sig själv. Centralmaktens hårdhänta undervisning om rätt och fel har ersatts av individens eget kunskapssökande. Eller?

    I den här antologin får vi möta 1600- och 1700-talens unga brottslingar, dagens släktforskare, och en mängd lärare, elever, folkbildare, filantroper och lobbyister däremellan. Tillsammans berättar deras historier om hur bildning, i bred bemärkelse, format den moderna människan.

    Antologin inleds med ett förord där redaktörerna ger sitt förslag till hur bildningens funktion kan förstås i ett historievetenskapligt sammanhang: som ett verktyg för klassformering, för hantering av samhällets unga, och för skapande av identiteter. Den avslutas med en text som diskuterar hur dagens historiker bör ställa sig till en av de senaste utbildningspolitiska frågorna: bildandet av européer med hjälp av en gemensam historieskrivning inom EU.
