    Praktiker som gör skillnad: Om den verb-inriktade metoden2013In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 133, no 3, p. 335-354Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the so-called verb-oriented method and its role in the research project Gender and Work in early modern Sweden (GaW), which is based at Uppsala University. It provides a presentation of the GaW-database, which has been designed to allow analysis according to the verb-method. Finally, the article points out that this method can be combined with a number of different theoretical approaches as long as the focus is on practices. It is therefore compatible with the approaches of e.g., Judith Butler, Michel de Certeau, and Amartya Sen. Work is defined as "time-use with the purpose of making a living" and the article discusses why data on time-use, or actual work activities, are better suited for research into early modern Swedish working life than other types of data. It shows that activities are usually described in the sources by verb-phrases, and explains how and from what sources verb-phrases are collected and analyzed within the project. In order to allow for generalizations the verb-method presupposes large amounts of data. This is the rationale for the GaW-database, which at present includes around 5000 verb-phrases and 75000 data posts.

    Crime, Community and the Negotiated Truth: Court Narratives of Capital Crime in the District Courts of Jämtland-Härjedalen 1649—17002017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to study the court narratives of serious crimes in the district courts of Jämtland-Härjedalen in the latter half of 17th century. This is done by studying the negotiated aspects of criminal court proceedings; how did stories of crime, guilt and character come together in the records to form narratives that became accepted truths by the local community and the authorities? Investigations of serious crime have been sampled from the collected records of five district courts in the period 1649–1700. These records have been analysed by identifying the different actors and voices of the narratives, the social stratification of the participants, their speech acts and how they were depicted by the court and by other participants.

    The analysis of the social stratification of accusers, defendants and witnesses shows evidence of a deeply hierarchical and patriarchal society: men and women of lower social status were not only grossly overrepresented as defendants in criminal investigations, they were also mostly excluded from participating as a witness. The inverse could be said about local elites and landed peasantry. Women were more often accused of crime, and while they were allowed to testify as witnesses, they were less so than men.

    The negotiation of the truth took place in three parallel and intersecting spheres of discourse, differing in what kind of questions were asked and what problems were being discussed between different categories of participants. The nature of crime was negotiated when accusers, defendants and witnesses debated the presented narratives; the accepted narrative of the crime was found by the assessment of the honesty of the individual participants, by considering their reputation and standing in the local community. While the word of the law was unrelenting and impossible to legally negotiate at the district court level, a kind of negotiation was done by the local community and sometimes also the district court taking the side of the defendant, pleading and petitioning the Royal High Court to find mercy for the convicted criminal.

    Väst eller öst om Hajnallinjen?: Svenska och tornedalsfinska giftermålsmönster 1760–17992015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay has been to test the validity of the established view of a different marriage pattern dividing Sweden and Finland during the early modern period, first laid out by John Hajnal in 1982. Apart from Hajnals theories on the Western European Marriage Pattern, the other theoretical approach has been an ecological hypothesis, maintained by Beatrice Moring and David Gaunt. This has been done by surveying the mean marriage age and family composition in four villages in the Kalix and Torne river valleys in the northern parts of Sweden by comparing household examination registers and parish records made during the four decades between 1760 and 1799.

    While both the coastal parishes of Nedertorneå and Nederkalix displayed some characteristics typical of the Western European Marriage Pattern, the inland parishes of Övertorneå and Överkalix both showed presence of low female marriage age and multiple family household compositions, which was prevalent in all four parishes surveyed.

    Since the cultural divide of the parishes did not show any significant correlation in household structure or age at marriage, these results seems to point towards the ecotype hypothesis, which surmised that family structure of the early modern communities of northern Sweden would be adapted to the surrounding economical and ecological circumstances rather than predetermined by cultural preferences.

    Guds stat och maktens villkor: Politiska ideal i Vadstena kloster, ca 1370-14702003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Vadstena abbey was one of the most powerful religious institutions of Sweden in the Middle Ages. This thesis analyses two specific aspects of this position: the position of Vadstena abbey as an agent in the political space of the late Middle Ages, and the political ideals propagated by that institution.

    Sermons written for the feast days of Nordic saints constitute the central source material for this study. Sermons were the most efficient mass media of the medieval world and at an institution like Vadstena, preachers could hope to reach thousands of people from all social groups. Using the sermons I have analysed the political ideals propagated by the abbey. In the beginning of the period, the abbey taught an ideal close to that of Bernard of Clairvaux, an ideology of the supremacy of religious institutions over temporal ones, the priests as the lights of society and the unique authority of saint Birgitta. They berated the temporal powers for not following the dictates of the church and maintained that such behaviour would lead to ruin. Towards the middle of the 15th century a significant change occurred. The brothers began to teach that an evil king and tyrant was still legitimate, since his misrule was part of God’s plan.

    This change in the political ideals is related to a change in the position of the abbey in relation to temporal powers. After being relatively autonomous the abbey gradually became less so. This, I argue, is due to the strengthening of the institution of monarchy during a period otherwise seen as simply chaotic.

    Ukraїnas självständighet 1917 i svensk press 1917–19182017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is a quantitative study with elements of qualitative analysis. The purpose of this quantitative study was to investigate WHAT was written about Ukraine's independence 1917 in Swedish press 1917–1918. The qualitative part of the survey was intended to answer the question if the newspaper's political attitude influenced the news reports during the chosen period. The exact periodization was determined to be between March 1, 1917 and June 30, 1918. This periodization was chosen because of the March Revolution in 1917, which triggered independence declarations in a number of countries oppressed by Moscow, who now saw their chance of freedom. June 1918 became the end of the investigation because it was just when the peace agreement between Ukraine and the Soviet Union was signed.

    The source material has been chosen to represent a multitude of ideological orientations. It was liberal, moderate, conservative, liberal and left-wing orientations. The source material consisted of newspaper articles from the following newspapers: Dagens Nyheter, Aftonbladet, Göteborgs Aftonblad, Svenska Dagbladet, Dalpilen, Kalmar Tidning and Norrskensflamman. Quantitative methodology was used on the source material. This method consisted of a reviewing of newspaper articles in searching of news reports from Ukraine or articles which had something to do with the events in Ukraine. Every newspaper was searched day after day. The crawled material was presented in two chapters representing different periods. The first chapter of the results presented the results from 1917, and more precisely from March to December 1917. The second chapter presented the results from 1918, but also from December 1917, that is, the result from December 1917 through June 1918. The whole result was then discussed in a separate chapter where the qualitative analysis was also discussed.

    The result of the quantitative analysis showed that it has been written relatively sparcely about Ukraine's independence although the volume of articles increased from December 1917 and even more in 1918. Sometimes there were articles on the first page. But for the most part, the articles with Ukraine issues were placed among other foreign articles. It was also found in the survey that it was the first World War that drew attention to the newspapers, even though the events in Petrograd and then in Ukraine took more space. This survey also showed that what was written about Ukraine's independence was also what appears in the reference literature. The news reports reported how Ukraine proclaimed independence in March 1917 and later on proclaimed an independent republic in November 1917 when the Bolsheviks conducted their coup d'état in Petrograd. The newspapers also wrote how the Russian Communists sent a declaration of war to Ukraine in December 1917 and about the war that followed. The articles also tell us how negotiations on Ukraine Peace went on in Brest-Litovsk, and how they ended up with alliance between Germany and Ukraine with the campaign against the communists. It was told how the German army marched into Ukraine to free it from the bolsheviks. Until May 1918 there were battles between the German-Ukrainian Army and the Communists. In June 1918 the peace agreement was signed and this survey’s investigation ended.

    The survey showed that it was written about Ukraine's independence in all newspapers. Dagens Nyheter had the most news articles linked to the survey. Although the number of articles was not subject for analysis in this survey. The qualitative analysis was based on using Höjelid's theoretical concepts "positive sound" and "negative sound" on the quantitative analysis material. The qualitative analysis’ result showed that it was almost impossible to see the differences between the newspapers because the articles were traded between the newspapers, i.e. the content was copied straight away. It should be noted that not all content was the subject of copying between the newspapers. Copying occurred to a greater extent, but there were still original articles derived from the respective newspaper. Most of the articles were also direct telegrams that were communicated abroad to the newspaper's editors. A lot of these telegrammic articles were sent with a purpose to mislead society. These angled articles were published without further examination in Swedish press. There were articles from, for example, Dagens Nyheter whose editors noted the "strange Petrograd reports" and informed about it for the purpose of enlightening the public. However, as most newspapers were occupied with World War I, as was shown in the source material, the newspaper editorial office was less interested in other foreign events. Therefore, such angled articles could be found in Swedish press on a larger scale.

    Elimination and Rebirth: The German Occupation of Soviet Ukraine in the OUN-M Propaganda2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis presents the way the OUN-M’s newspaper Ukraïns’ke slovo framed the German occupation of Soviet Ukraine. Using a qualitative text analysis, this paper investigates sixty-six issues of the periodical, published in September-December 1941, in order to identify collective action framing that the OUN-M utilises to portray the Nazi occupation and elements of fascist ideology that are present in these frames. Combining the conceptualisation of fascism and collective action framing, the results of this study are related to the political platform of the OUN-M. The findings demonstrate that Ukraïns’ke slovo used three collective action frames to diagnose the alleged “enemies” of Ukrainians, propose a solution of eliminating these “enemies,” and motivate its audience. In the framing process, the periodical embedded fascist rhetoric in its portrayal of the German occupation of Soviet Ukraine. Furthermore, as of September-December 1941, the political platform of the OUN-M also had a strong fascist foundation. However, further research is required to explore the OUN-M as a fascist organisation.

    "Om syndikalismen ej om S.A.C. skall arbetarna slå vakt": Arbetare-Kurirens framställning av meningsskiljaktigheterna inom den syndikalistiska rörelsen i Sverige 19282017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats har varit att belysa de meningsskiljaktigheter som rådde inom den syndikalistiska rörelsen i Sverige under andra halvan av 1920-talet samt hur dessa förmedlades och spreds. Detta har gjorts med hjälp av frågeställningen Hur tog sig missnöjet gentemot SACs centrala ledning och organisationsform uttryck i De samverkande distriktens tidning, Arbetare- Kuriren, under 1928. Denna frågeställning har behandlats med en teori om partiers handlande i flerpartisystem anpassad för en syndikalistisk organisations villkor. De centrala begreppen i teorin är strategi och ideologi.

    Föremål för undersökningen har varit tidningen Arbetare-Kuriren från 7 januari till 24 november 1928. Ur tidningen har de texter som behandlar konflikten mellan oppositionen och SACs centrala ledning plockats ut, kategoriserats och analyserats.

    Det organisationsförslag De samverkande distrikten presenterade centrerades runt en sänkning av kontingenten av strategiska medlemsantalsmaximerande skäl. Att ha en inkomstbaserad kontingentsats riskerade skapa klasser inom organisationen. Frivilliga bidrag skulle öka intäkterna. Sänkningen skulle bekostas med en nedskärning av administrationen. Att skära ner administrationen hade också ideologiska skäl då den ansågs stå i vägen för medlemmarnas självbestämmande.

    Oppositionen ansåg att AU hade en auktoritär funktion snarare än en administrativ. Detta exemplifierades genom händelser i Hälsingland och Helsingborg där AU hävdades ha lagt sig i LS och DKs förehavanden utan legitimitet. AU påstods också ha ljugit då de redovisade organisationens omkostnader. AU skulle därför avskaffas av ideologiska skäl. De besparingar detta skulle innebära skulle bidra till en sänkt kontingentkostnad.

    Gustav Sjöström delade oppositionens kritik men inte dess förslag till åtgärder. Sjöström slog konsekvent vakt om syndikalismens ideologiska utgångspunkter och menade att en sänkt kontingent inte fick leda till ett minskat självbestämmande Detta besvarades av P.J Welinder som försvarade organisationsförslaget och gjorde vissa tillägg. Welinder positionerade sig här som materialist och ansåg Sjöström vara en idealist.

    Stora delar av SACs ledning anklagades för att inte vara syndikalister samt eftersträva en sammanslagning av SAC med LO och krossa den syndikalistiska rörelsen. Den främsta måltavlan för dessa anklagelser var Frans Severin och Arbetarens redaktion. Oppositionen påstod sig här slå vakt om de syndikalistiska idéerna.

    Då bildandet av SAF proklamerades menade sig oppositionen inte ha någon chans att påverka SAC längre. I proklamationen betonades återigen behovet av en sänkt kontingent av strategiska skäl som skulle finansieras genom en minskad administration. Den minskade administrationen motiverades också ideologiskt.

    Abstract

    The struggle for Swedish foreign policy

    How Swedish foreign policy was defined and established between the years 1867–1905 as a result of prevailing political power-sharing

     

    AIMS – The aim of this master thesis is to problematize how the Swedish foreign policy was defined politically in the context of the existing constitutional power-sharing model between the bicameral parliament and the ruling monarch. The period 1867–1905 is considered an earlier phase in the political process towards modern parliamentarianism in Sweden. DESIGN – An overall theoretical perspective of a correlation between domestic- and foreign policy is applied, and complemented with a theoretical position of which actor has the priority to define Swedish foreign policy. The thesis uses a methodology of extensive argumentation analysis, with a thematic division between the internal political arena on one side, and on the other side the parliamentary arena. The first arena is analyzed by combining political programs with the monarchs’ autobiographies and memoir. The second arena uses parliamentary debate protocols, parliamentary bills. In this way the thesis generates a selection and a greater understanding of various political issues which is of concern to the actual foreign policy definition in the annual official political throne speeches of the Swedish monarch. RESULTS – A variety of political issues are regarded as of foreign political importance within the internal political arena and is distinguished by a degree of correlations with ideological, ideal and political domestic issues. Such issues are then reflected in the parliamentary arena, through debates in both first and second chambers. The range of issues addressed is not only of constitutional importance, regarding the monarch’s executive power over the different foreign policy areas, but also concerning which political approach should be applied to define the main principle of Swedish foreign policy. Together, the parliamentary debates reveals which arguments influence the definition of foreign policy and which actors who claim the priority to define Swedish foreign policy – all within the existing frame of the power-sharing system. CONCLUSIONS – The thesis concludes that the actors of various parliamentary committees, and especially the constitutional committee, not only had the crucial argument which determined the outcome of the numerous parliamentary debates. Same actors also had the priority to define the main arguments on which the foundations of the monarch’s foreign policy political guidelines where dictated.

    How Sweden's elderly fared after the war. Focus is on public officials in Västerås, a provincial capital one hour's drive west of Stockholm. Arriving from the collective spirit of the fifties, the individual can no longer elicit any economic incentive from any entity positioned between him and the state.

    Nöden har en lag: Fattigvård i 1800-talets Västerås2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The general purpose of this master thesis is to review and judge how Sweden's intricate social care system was composed and applied during the late 19th century. Observations will be made how the care system was interpreted in a local context. How was the system altered over time? Who was defined as poor and eligible for support, and if so, why?

    The thesis will focus on the period 1860‒1879, in many ways an era of political and social change in Sweden. Such changes are better reflected in an urban environment, rather than the rural. With its geographical setting in central Sweden, the city of Västerås provided a good choice. Here, a rich and unique array of social records from the time was available at the city archives.  

    Earlier academic research in the social field plays an important part of this paper. Thus, representations of the social work in the cities of Göteborg, Norrköping and Skellefteå are introduced, in the hope they should bring about a wider understanding of poor relief work in cities of other sizes and regions.

    The times they are a-changin’ - and entailed quite a few political, economic and social dramas for the country. Responsibility for care and relief of the poor passed over from the parish, a centuries-old administrative entity ruled by the church, into secular hands following a reform law passed in 1862. Now the commune was created, to be ruled by a city council composed of merchants, artisans and the general bourgeoisie. Sweden also saw a constitutional change when a bicameral parliament was created in 1866. While the applicable poor relief law had been in force since 1853, a new and in fact stricter law was introduced in 1871. These countrywide statutes and regulations were material and came to influence the life of many Swedes.

    The thesis concludes that the city´s handling of the poor constituted an ethical dilemma, rooted in a definition of worthy or unworthy poor people. This distinction arose partly from the statutes of the law, partly from the city’s domestic norms and beliefs. The elderly, and minors above all, were always considered worthy and duly provided for, while the poor fellow coded unworthy stood a risk to be refused aid, perhaps even to be arrested due to his lack of will or means to support himself and his family. All things considered, the system however left nobody to perish by poverty.

    Vård för samhällets bästa: Debatten om tvångsvård i svensk lagstiftning 1850–19702001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    How does a state justify forcing its citizens to receive health care? This study analyses how the use of coercive care was treated in Swedish legislation 1850–1970. By focusing on the compulsory care of those who did not break any laws, the arguments for and against state intervention are examined. Four key groups are investigated: those with epidemic diseases or venereal diseases, those suffering from mental illness and those addicted to alcohol or other drugs. Compulsory care is considered both as a part of a civilizing process and as a mechanism of control used to discipline the citizens.

    The major arguments for compulsory care were the same for all four groups and with some variation remained alike throughout the entire period. Firstly, the problem needed to be defined as a medical one. In this process medicalization and the medical profession played an important role. Secondly, the individual targeted for compulsory care must be considered dangerous, i.e. representing a threat to his immediate surroundings and later also to himself. Thirdly, the individual’s threat to society as a whole was important. How this threat was interpreted varied between different groups and over time. The main change was a wider interpretation of what constituted a threat.

    In general, the perception of who needed to be forced into care shifted from the working class poor to those who would not comply with the directives of the authorities, i.e. to those whose behaviour was considered anti-social. This coincided with the gradual realisation by those supporting compulsory care that not all problems could be solved through more and better treatment or information.

    Becoming Swedish-American: The construction of an ethnic identity in the Augustana Synod, 1860-19171997Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation examines the construction of an ethnic identity in the Swedish-American community around the turn of the century 1900. It takes its starting points in discussions of the nature of ethnic identity, the role of ethnic leadership, and the process of nation-building and nationalism in 19th-century Europe and America.

    The study focuses on the largest organization founded by Swedish immigrants in theUnited States, the Lutheran denomination the Augustana Synod, and examines its rolefor the creation of an ethnic identity. Three fundamental questions are posed: How didan ethnic identity develop in the Augustana Synod, what did it consist of, and why didit come into being. Three main empirical areas are used to analyze the development andcontents of the Swedish-American identity: the Synod's largest institution of highereducation, Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois; the Synod's publishing house,the Augustana Book Concern; and the way in which a Swedish-American history wasfashioned within the Synod.

    The results of the study show how a Swedish-American identity was constructed by a cultural leadership in the Augustana Synod, This idealized and romanticized identity included Swedish, Swedish-American, and American cultural elements. An awareness of a Swedish-American culture, separate from both Sweden and the United States, developed in which the construction of a Swedish-American history played an important role, emphasizing an early Swedish presence on the American continent and significant Swedish and Swedish-American contributions to the American republic. The reasons for the creation of the identity are seen in the light of the nature of American nationalism, which made it possible for European immigrant groups to develop and maintain ethnic identities and still be loyal Americans.

    Knowledge and Expertise in International Interventions: The Politics of Facts, Truth and Authenticity2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge about violent conflict and international intervention is political. It involves power struggles over the objects of knowing (problematization/silencing), how they are known (epistemic practices), and what interpretations are taken into account in policymaking and implementation. This book unearths the politics, power and performances involved in the social construction of seemingly neutral concepts such as facts, truth and authenticity in knowing about violent conflict and international intervention. Contributors foreground problems of physical and social access to information, explore practices generating knowledge actors' authority and legitimacy, and analyse struggles over competing policy narratives. A first set of chapters focuses on the social construction of facts, truth and authenticity through studies of militia research in the DR Congo, politicians' on-site visits in intervention theatres in the Balkans and Afghanistan, and the epistemic practices of Human Rights Watch and comics journalism. A second set of contributions analyses the strategic side of knowledge through case studies of diplomatic counterinsurgency in Bosnia and Herzegovina, African governments' active role in the `bunkerization' of international aid workers, and authoritarian peacebuilding as a challenge to the liberal power/knowledge regime in world politics. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding.

    The power of national narratives: The lack of genuine efforts to come to terms with the past in Hungary and Romania, and the role of historians2016In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 136, no 3, p. 441-471Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the power of national narratives and the lack of genuine efforts to come to terms with the past in Hungary and Romania. Hungary and Romania have experienced a common history marked by conflicts, changing borders, and totalitarian regimes. The two countries have not succeeded in overcoming issues in their common past. Instead, national narratives have been institutionalized in textbooks and among historians, even in the international context. Historians have narrated the nation's history under the strong influence of political agendas. This political force supports the hegemonic positions of the national narratives today. The national narratives are not only disseminated domestically, but are also reflected in articles about the two countries in encyclopedias abroad, such as the Swedish National Encyclopedia (Nationalencyklopedin). Romania has undertaken more efforts to come to terms with its past than Hungary has, in assuming responsibility for the Holocaust and investigating crimes against humanity during communism for example. Hungary's position on the Holocaust has been contradictory. On the one hand, Hungarian officials have admitted the Hungarian state's responsibility. However, on the other hand, leading historians appointed by the Hungarian government have explicitly claimed that Nazi-Germany alone was responsible for the Holocaust. The officially sanctioned responsibility assumed by the Hungarian and Romanian governments should be seen as sign of political correctness rather than genuine reconciliation. Politicians and historians in Hungary have together launched a campaign of historical revisionism, which is most visible with regard to the interwar and Second World War periods, in order to strengthen the national consciousness among its citizens. This campaign has reinforced the exclusive ethnic perspective of Hungary's history, and serves as a norm for present day politics. In both Hungary and Romania national narratives maintain a hegemonic position thanks to the support from politicians and some historians. This undermines reconciliation and accountability with regard to both the individual and the shared history of the two nations.

    Omsorg om livet: Spädbarnsdödlighetens förändring i Ådalen under 1800-talet2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    During the first half of the nineteenth century infant mortality rates in Ådalen, an agrarian region in northern Sweden, were among the highest in the country. During the second half of the century the region experienced a rapid population growth and a restructuring of the economy in conjunction with the expansion of the sawmill industry. Infant mortality rates peaked in the 1870s but then declined to a level near the national average, despite the pressures of rapid industrialisation. Using an analytical model which emphasizes the role of the mother in infant care, variables that affect infant mortality are considered. The central argument is that a mother can either lessen or increase the impact of detrimental influences on infant survival, depending on her store of knowledge and how she is able to use it. The variables are broadly grouped into three categories: socio-economic, cultural and medical/health issues. The primary sources are church records, provincial physician’s reports and folklore documents. The results demonstrate that socio-economic factors were only important in the sense that better living conditions made it easier for a mother to care for her child. The high level of infant mortality in the region was due mainly to cultural factors that resulted in a weak breast-feeding tradition. Since it was thought that breast milk was insufficient, infants were put on a diet containing herring and gruel served in cow’s horn at a very early age, resulting in a variety of diarrhoeal afflictions. Although the provincial physicians strongly recommended breast feeding, most mothers continued the practice and the tradition remained unchanged. The decline of infant mortality was mainly due to the impact of midwives. They introduced new hygienic practices  in conjunction with deliveries and in the handling of supplementary foods which resulted in a decrease of both neonatal and post-neonatal deaths.
