    Abstract

    Four executions and one pardon

    The executioner’s sword and the newspaperman’s pen in Sweden 1874 – 1910

    This study examines how three murder cases who lead to a death penalty sentence for the five accused persons are covered in selected contemporary Swedish newspapers. Four of the five condemned persons, three men and one woman, were executed. One man was pardoned. The circumstances in each case are unique. The 1874 murders of Mauritz Upmarks and Johan Larsson in Malmköping, by Gustaf Adolf Eriksson Hjert and Conrad Pettersson Lundqvist Tector, led to the last public executions in 1876 in Malmköping and Visby simultaneously. The murder of Hanna Johansson by her husband, Per Nilsson, and her mother-in-law, Anna Månsdotter, led to the last execution of a woman in Sweden. Her son Per was pardoned. Finally I examine the robbery and murder of Victoria Hellsten at the Gerell exchange office in Stockholm in 1910 by Alfred Ander that led to the only time a guillotine was used in Sweden. It was also the final execution in Sweden.

    My aim is to examine how selected national and local newspapers covered these crimes, trials and finally the executions. Are there any traceable differences regarding the treatment of the woman on trial in the articles compared to that of the men? Do local and national mewspapers differ in their reporting? I found that there is a great similarity between the local and the national newspapers with a few exceptions. The woman was not subject to favoritism, but rather more critically judged by the writers and the population in her village.

    Previous studies and literature with connections to my study complete the materials that are used in this examination. My conclusion is that all newspapers that I selected have a negative attitude towards the capital punishment and describe the executions as something horrendous in varying degrees. The descriptions of the perpetrators are matter – of – fact while the victims are treated with sympathy. The newspapers differ in some details but generally their coverages of the murders, trails and executions are of the same pattern. A few newspapers present surprising opinions and individual thoughts. I found that while one cannot claim that the newspapers were demanding a banning of the capital punishment they contributed to the ongoing debate on the subject. There is no favoritism displayed in the articles. The woman and the men are treated equally. My conclusion is that the answers to my questions were found in the selected material.

    The Best Foot Forward: Self-Presentation and the Creation of Respectability Through Job Advertisements in the Public Press, 18002016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how power relations were negotiated and expressed through the use of certain linguistic practices in a public context. More specifically, it looks closer at how job applicants presented themselves publically through newspaper advertisements and which discursive codes they made use of to portray themselves as reputable, desirable employees that fit into the bourgeois concept of respectability. The survey accordingly moves within the theoretical frameworks of the respectability discourse, altering power relations, self-presentation and the public sphere, and does so through the application of linguistic methods on a very specific material not commonly looked at from these macro-perspectives.

    The first part of the analysis identifies which specific social groups that used the press as a channel for self-presentation, focusing on the aspects of gender, marital status, work experience and occupational title. Through establishing this information, we reach an understanding of who can be ascribed an active participation in the public sphere and where to place these individuals along the social scale. Thereafter, the vocabulary of the advertisers is scrutinized and compared to see how strategies to create an air of respectability around yourself may have differed with the personal aspects mentioned above. Conclusively, the results from these enquiries serve as the basis for a larger discussion on whether the assertive self-promotion of the job advertisers can be interpreted as a self-empowerment among a section of London’s labourers, or whether the publication of the adverts rather is to be seen as a consolidation of already existing power relationships. The findings prove that through their strict adherence to the concept of respectability in a desire to win the favour of their social superiors, the linguistic strategies of the adverts cannot be interpreted as an early form of working class-movement with the intention of overthrowing the social order. On the contrary, the hierarchical structure of the 18th century was as present as ever when society moved towards the next centenary and was consolidated even further by the linguistic strategies of the advertisers.

    Royal Power and Bureaucracy: The Function of the Högste Ombudsman in the Last Phase of theGreat Northern War2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The power struggle between the Charles XII and his bureaucracy after the crushing defeat inPoltava (1709) mainly concerned the unwillingness of the latter to raise a new army that could beshipped to Pomerania. In reaction to this disobedience the king reformed his bureaucracy.Among other things, the Carolinian reforms introduced the högste ombudsman. The office was toenforce the law and supervise all civil servant and military officers. This thesis deals with thequestion of how the högste ombudsman functioned within this power struggle. The source materialconsists of the correspondence between the högste ombudsman and various bureaucratic institutionsfrom every level of society.By consistently prosecuting civil servants and military officers and enforcing the law, he wasable to guarantee the functioning of the bureaucracy and at the same time fulfilled an importantideological function. He showed Swedish society that the bureaucracy was controlled and thatdisobedience was not tolerated regardless of social standing. This is especially apparent in hisactivities with the central and regional authorities. The latter were strictly controlled as they wereinstrumental in the supervision of the local authorities. However, as a side effect of theCarolinian reforms, the högste ombudsman had to answer many requests from local authorities thatnot always directly related to the main objectives of his office. Moreover, this indicates that thepriority of the högste ombudsman lied with the supervision of the central and regional authorities.By setting examples to the bureaucracy and society that criminal activities and disobediencewas not tolerated, he fulfilled his duty as royal instrument of coercion. He helped to the kingpursue the Swedish war effort against the will of the bureaucracy. This thesis provides anenhanced understanding of the royal policy of Charles XII and delivers a valuable account ofhow an autocratic monarch attempted to regain control over his bureaucracy.

    Bonds lost: Subordination, conflict and mobilisation in rural south India c. 1900-19701997Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation examines the transformation of rural social relations in the highlandsof south India during a period of rapid agricultural change. Long before the expansionof commercial crops in agriculture, the landowning community of farmers and thelandless agricultural labourers had been closely related to each other. During theeconomic change, the need of these labourers increased on the farms. As the labourerswere also leather workers, their skills were Indispensable to reassure the farmers ofthe increasingly necessary irrigation.

    By a combination of a variety of government, mission and oral sources, thethesis shows that, between 1880s and 1930s, competition for labour scaled up in theregion and agricultural labourers were increasingly tied by advance payments to workfor a farmer. This is known as the pannai or farm system and included both dutiesand rights for the labourers. On account of this, economic expansion gained supportand social control was upheld. However, even after preconditions had been madeavailable to achieve a more profitable farming by replacing permanent by casuallabourers a substantial, permanent labour force was still employed on the farms. In thelate 1930s and 1940s, kinship-wise mobilisation among the Madhari labourers toconvert to Christianity was met by strong and sometimes violent resistance. Everymovement they made to break with Goundar authority was realised as a threat. Thus,during a decade, social rationality was given priority over economic rationality by thefarmers. A severe six-year long drought contributed to end this situation. The farmersfinally electrified irrigation and dismissed the major part of their permanent labourforce. Thus, the labourers not only gained free mobility but simultaneously lost therights and security that had been attached to their bonds.

    Fixed boundaries, fluid landscapes: British expansion into Northern East Bengal in the 1820s2009In: Indian economic and social history review, ISSN 0019-4646, E-ISSN 0973-0893, Vol. 46, no 4, p. 513-540Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on questions of the formation of new polities and ruler-subject relations as a result of British colonial conquest of northern east Bengal and neighbouring states in the early nineteenth century. It emphasises ecological and climatic structuring conditions and is a contribution to research on changing spatial relations and transactions, transformation of hill-plain relations, and collisions between synoptic political visions and knowledge systems, and their implementation on particular landscapes and people. Particular attention is given to the time and place-bound formation of law for the control and access of land and natural resources. The study thus explores the tense relationship between a fluid, continuously changing landscape and the fixed notions of boundaries, government control and polities held by the British East India Company (EIC) and which they strove to implement in military and fiscal control in northern east Bengal. The study suggests that the means and principles by which bureaucratic control was established formed the basis for a form of fiscal citizenship whereby the subject was acknowledged as a person with rights and in communication with government. Such control was established in the formet Nawab's territories which mainly consisted of plains and therefore were landscapes that were intended to be agrarian. It is further suggested that when the neighbouring independent states and autonomous villages were brought under EIC rule, this was done by other means which in turn shaped different ruler-subject relations and eventually paved the way for the formation of dual polities under one government.

    Founding an Empire on India's North-Eastern Frontiers, 1790-1840: Climate, Commerce, Polity2013Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is a richly detailed historical work of the unsettled half-century from the 1790s to the 1830s when the British East India Company strove to establish control of the colonial north-eastern frontiers spanning the River Brahmaputra to the Burmese border. It offers a much-needed reframing of regional histories of South Asia away from the subcontinental Indian mainland to the varied social ecologies of Sylhet, Cachar, Manipur, Jaintia, and Khasi hills.As a mercantile corporation, the EIC aimed at getting in command of the millennium-old over-land commercial routes connecting India and China. The study specifically engages with the early nineteenth century explorations of trade across Burma. Simultaneously, the Mughal diwani grant compelled the EIC to govern territory. Drawing on extensive research, the study demonstrates the incompatibility of bureaucratic power, the complex socio-economic networks of authority, and the ever-changing landscapes of the region. In a monsoon climate, where rivers moved and land was inundated for months, any attempt to form a uniform administration tended to clash with hybrid landscapes and waterscapes. This work explores how daily administrative and military practice shaped colonial polities and subject formation.Located at the intersection of colonial, legal, and environmental history, the study is of particular interest for scholars and students in history, political ecology, and anthropology.

    • Reframes the regional history of South Asia away from the subcontinental Indian mainland
    • Located at the intersection of colonial, environmental, and legal history
    • Integrates climate history with socio-political history
    • Brings present-day north-east India into a wider historical and regional analysis
    • Addresses the gap in research on formative years of the British rule
    • Studies lesser-known areas like Cachar, Manipur, Tripura, and Jaintia
