    'I'm from Barcelona': Boundaries and Transformations Between Catalan and Spanish Identities2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the last decade or so, the multiple political factions in Catalonia have adopted pro-independence initiatives in their platforms following the 2008 financial crisis. Catalonia’s position as representing a minority culture in the face of the centralized administration of Madrid presents a contentious history of fighting for the right ‘to be’, culminating in what today is viewed by many as an identity crisis.             

    Drawing on fieldwork conducted in Barcelona, this thesis examines how informants construct and transform their socio-cultural identities in the framework of the independence movement in Catalonia. It places informants’ experiences in the theoretical realm of ethnic boundaries, analyzing central issues of Catalan language normalization vis à vis the historical imposition of Spanish as the national language. These themes are broadened in light of the recent upsurge of Catalan secession, and explores identity politics within the background of Spanish and Catalan nationalisms.

    Polish Catholics In Mälaren Valley: Swedification And Resistance2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this ethnographic study, I explore the ways, in which the engagement of Polish Catholics with Swedish society generates both adaptation and resistance. The thesis begins with an overview of the history of the Swedish Catholic Church and notes how Poles became one of the most numerous immigrant groups in Sweden during past decades. I then make use of fifteen in-depth interviews along with more than twenty sessions of observation in a Polish milieu in the Mälaren Valley. Polish Catholics often consider themselves, as one put it, as "weird creatures" in Sweden, not only for being a religious minority, but also due to conflicts between Catholic moral teachings and prevailing modern liberal views in Swedish society. Also, interviewees tend to blame Sweden for weakening the religiosity of their compatriots. Catholicism often presents particular challenges for the adaptation and integration of Poles, especially teenagers, who are, as one out it, seen "like freaks here". Also notable is the controversial stance of parishioners and the clergy on gender questions. While many laity see feminism as a threat, some priests assert that "feminism and Catholicism have so much in common". Among other challenges for the religious life of Poles in Sweden are consumerism, which leads to the formulation "prosperity destroys people" and is seen as a competitor to the church; and the Swedish language, which divides first and second generations. Interviewees also express shared interests with Muslims and solidarity with Orthodox Christians.

    Kulturfrämjande eller läsfrämjande?: En studie i läsfrämjande aktiviteter på två folkbibliotek2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     The purpose of this master’s thesis is to examine how two libraries, Sundbyberg bibliotek and Rinkeby bibliotek,

    work with activities that promote and stimulate reading among children and youths. The main purpose behind

    this study is to examine what kind of activities the libraries offer, how they are received by the children and

    youths participating in them and lastly how the libraries deal with children and youths who are disinterested in

    reading.

    The theoretical base for this study is discourse analysis, which is used to distinguish a structure in the interviews

    with the librarians from the two libraries. Furthermore, research results in the field of activities that promote

    reading among children and youths form a backdrop for the study as well as a framework onto which the

    empirical results are hung.

    The methods used in this study are qualitative interviews and text analysis. One librarian from Sundbyberg

    bibliotek has been interviewed and two librarians from Rinkeby bibliotek. The text analysis was based on policy

    documents, the websites of the respective libraries and lastly the social media where the libraries are active.

    The main results show that the libraries have similar attitudes regarding the importance of reading for children

    and youths. Furthermore, the librarians all showed a wide variety of activities that are intended to stimulate

    reading for children and youths. These activities can be divided into either direct or indirect reading stimulating

    activities. The direct activities deal with reading in a literal sense and books are a clear topic. The indirect activities,

    however, are a way to mediate between the child and the youth, and reading. Instead of having books as a

    topic, these activities are overtly about something else, such as films or playtime for toddlers. Reading is implied

    but never mentioned directly. This division is in place because children and youths are less inclined to participate

    in activities that are overtly about reading since there are a large number of children and youths who do not appreciate

    reading.

    This is a two years master’s thesis in Archive, Library and Museum studies.

    Betydelseskapande interpunktion: En studie av två skönlitterära verk riktade till olika åldersgrupper2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Interpunktion är en viktig, men ganska osynlig, del av skriftspråket som bidrar till förståelse och överblick av texter. Denna studie undersöker interpunktionens funktion i två skönlitterära skräckböcker: Färjan, riktad till vuxna, skriven av Mats Strandberg samt Monstret i natten, riktad till barn i åldrarna 6–9 år, skriven av Mats Strandberg och illustrerad av Sofia Falkenhem. Syftet med studien är att dels beskriva interpunktionen i böckerna och dels jämföra dem med varandra. Resultatet visar att interpunktionens funktion i de aktuella böckerna överensstämmer med tidigare studiers resultat, även om vissa skillnader går att finna gällande exempelvis vilka resurser som tillämpas. Vidare visar resultatet att interpunktionens funktion i de båda böckerna skiljer sig åt, då interpunktionen i Färjan är mer varierad och avancerad än den i Monstret i natten.

    Apostolic Succession in the Porvoo Common Statement: Unity through a deeper sense of apostolicity2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A number of ecumenical dialogues have identified apostolic succession as one of the most crucial issues on which the churches need to find a joint understanding in order to achieve the unity of the Church.

    When the Porvoo Common Statement (PCS) was published in 1993, it was regarded by some as an ecumenical breakthrough, because it claimed to have established visible and corporate unity between the Lutheran and Anglican churches of the Nordic-Baltic-British-Irish region through a joint understanding of ecclesiology and apostolic succession. The consensus has been achieved, according to the PCS, through a ‘deeper understanding’ that embraces the churches’ earlier diverse interpretations. In the international debate about the PCS, the claim of a ‘deeper understanding’ as a solution to earlier contradictory interpretations has been both praised and criticised, and has been seen as both possible and impossible.

    This thesis investigates how and why the PCS has been interpreted differently in various contexts, and discerns the arguments used for or against the ecclesiology presented in the PCS. Those arguments are then analysed historically and theologically in order to develop further the comprehension of the ‘deeper understanding’ presented in the PCS and, if possible, to develop the ecclesiology and the notion of apostolic succession described in the PCS.

    Finally, this study investigates how the PCS has been implemented in the churches that have signed the Porvoo Declaration and in the Porvoo Communion as a whole.

    Babylon Will Be Found No More: On Affinities Between Christianity and Anarcho-Primitivism2017In: Journal of Religion & Society, ISSN ISSN 1522-5668, Vol. 19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses affinities between Christian political theology and the Anarcho-primitivistcritique of civilization. It is argued that there is a significant constructive potential in such a critique, especially in relation to the current political and societal situation, and that the critique to a great extent is compatible with traditional Christianity. It is further argued that this constructive potential, while currently hampered, can be effectively unlocked in relation to a proper theological anchoring of Anarcho-primitivism. It is then maintained that such an anchoring could most plausiblybe provided by the Abrahamic traditions, and especially the Christian, due to the particular compatibility between Anarcho-primitivism and Christianity.

    Death and the Self: A Metaphysical Investigation of the Rationality of Afterlife Beliefs in the Contemporary Intellectual Climate2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation's purpose is to test the hypothesis that beliefs in the possibility of post-mortem survival can be rationally held within the context of the contemporary scientific and philosophical environment. In terms of criteria of rationality, a basic evidentialism is assumed, such that propositions which are sufficiently supported by the available evidence can be rationally held. With regard to the compatibility with contemporary science and philosophy, it follows as a further criterion that the relevant evidence must be satisfactorily anchored within the framework of these traditions.

    The relevant evidence concerns two levels. First, the basic level of the conceptual coherence of afterlife beliefs is addressed, so that the logical possibility of post-mortem survival can be established. Secondly, the viability of the metaphysics which are implied in the support of the logical possibility (i.e. the metaphysics needed to actualize post-mortem survival) is defended, establishing the metaphysical possibility of post-mortem survival. At this stage, reductive physicalism, which is the only position that effectively undermines post-mortem survival, is criticized, and the problem of interaction which burdens several of the survival-enabling ontologies is addressed.

    As for the criterion of scientific compatibility, it is further shown that contemporary physics are compatible with the survival-enabling metaphysics, and that contemporary physics can be argued to provide a moderate positive relevance with regard to these positions.

    The conclusion drawn is that belief in the possibility of post-mortem survival is not only rationally permissible within the framework of contemporary science and philosophy, but also rationally obligatory, i.e. that this possibility cannot rationally be denied with regard to the reviewed evidence.

    Personer och monster: om litteraturens bidrag till religionsfilosofin2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the relationship between literature and philosophy, with special regards to how literature can contribute to deepen the understanding in philosophical matters. This is executed by a comparison between how a work of fiction, versus works of philosophy, can tackle the issue of personhood. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is being compared with philosopher Lynne Rudder Baker’s Persons and Bodies and Jacques Maritain’s The Person and the Common Good in order to map out how literature can contribute to the philosophical discourse regarding personhood. The paper finalizes that the main character in Frankenstein, “the monster” displays several issues that may show up when trying to define what it means to be a person, and where the line is to be drawn between a person and a non-person. The paper thus serves a two-folded purpose: to expand and challenge the traditional philosophical methodology, and find new understanding within the subject of personhood.

    Embracing the Future: The Church of Sweden in Continuous Reformation2017In: Journal of The European Society of Women in Theological Research, ISSN 1783-2454, E-ISSN 1783-2446, ISSN 1783-2454, Vol. 25, p. 67-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The whole world followed the events in Lund, Sweden, on October 31, 2016, when for the first time a joint ecumenical commemoration of the Reformation took place between the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and the Roman-Catholic Church. A photo distributed worldwide, shows Pope Francis and the Archbishop of the Church of Sweden, Antje Jackelén, embracing each other. The photo contains both hope and tension. The Church of Sweden tries to balance the tension between its heritage as ecumenical bridgebuilder, launched already by Archbishop Nathan Söderblom a hundred years ago, and its pioneering role with regard to issues of gender and sexuality. In the article these seemingly contradictory roles is set into a wider context of the journey Sweden has made from the time of the Lutheran reformation up to the present. A uniform society characterized by one people and one Christian faith, has gradually transformed into a society where faith is a voluntary option. The former state church faces new demands in handling religious as well as cultural diversities. Leadership is increasingly equally shared between women and men. The Church of Sweden holds all these tensions together through the approach launched on the official website of a church in constant need of reform.

    The gender order of prophetic diaconia2017In: Diaconia. Journal for the Study of Christian Social Practice, ISSN 1869-3261, E-ISSN 2196-9027, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 38-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article starts from a growing ecumenical consensus on the importance of prophetic diaconia in relation to the global challenges of the 21st century. The specific question addressed concerns how the churches can lay a better foundation for prophetic diaconia by discarding their traditional gender structure. The more churches free themselves from the patriarchal aspects of their traditions, the more credible they become as social critics – and the more they are free to do their work for the world’s healing. The article builds on a master’s thesis in educational management on deacons as the whistle-blowers of the Church, a role which is coded as female and related to a predominantly male-coded resistance, questioning, and criticism. The article argues that this shows a hitherto neglected area of research that deserves more extensive studies in the future.Read More: http://www.vr-elibrary.de/doi/10.13109/diac.2017.8.1.38#.We3vlVu0Opo

    Säger man på båda sätt/sätten?: En studie av substantivets speciesform i nominalfraser med båda eller vardera som inledande attribut2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Enligt rådande normer ska det substantiviska huvudordet i nominalfraser som inleds med båda eller vardera stå i bestämd form. Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka om det verkar pågå en förändring vad gäller de här konstruktionerna, och vilka principer som i så fall verkar styra förändringen. Min hypotes är att utvecklingen går mot en högre acceptans av substantiv i obestämd form i dessa fraser, och att meningens formalitetsgrad och det kontextuella eller naturliga parförhållandet för huvudordets referenter skulle kunna vara faktorer som påverkar språkkänslan.

    Genom en elektronisk enkät har jag samlat in bedömningar från informanter i tre olika åldersgrupper, 20–30 år, 50–60 år och 70 år eller äldre, av meningspar innehållande konstruktionerna med båda och vardera, där det substantiviska huvudordets speciesform var det enda som skilde meningarna i paret åt. Resultatet visade att det med stor sannolikhet håller på att ske en förändring med båda konstruktionerna mot en högre acceptans av och preferens för obestämd form av substantivet efter båda och vardera, varav förändringen för vardera är längst gången. Formalitet verkar spela roll för de yngre när det kommer till meningarna med båda och för de äldre när det kommer till meningarna med vardera. I båda fallen innebär ökad formalitetsgrad högre acceptans av obestämd form.

    The Capitalist State and the Construction of Civil Society: Public Funding and the Regulation of Popular Education in Sweden, 1870–19912017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book challenges the idea that a sharp boundary should be drawn between the state and civil society. Although this idea is extremely common in modern capitalist societies, here it is turned on its head through a study of the ways in which public funding from the 1870s to the 1990s has enabled and shaped collective action in Swedish popular education. Popular education has generally been seen as independent of government control, with strong connections to popular and labour movements; in this volume, Berg and Edquist narrate a new story of its rise by analysing how a government grant system was constructed to drive its development. A key element in this government policy was to create and protect popular education as an autonomous phenomenon, yet making it perform state functions by regulating its bureaucratic make-up and ideological content. The book will appeal to scholars and students of history, education, and sociology, particularly those with an interest in the workings of the capitalist state as well as the history of education.

    Neurokemiska visioner: Cipramil och farmakaliseringen av depressionssjukdomar 1988–20022017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The history of pharmaceuticals often tends to be the history of chemistry, scientists, and

    successful invention. In Sweden, discussions regarding the history of modern antidepressants

    often demonstrate a lack of historical perspectives.

    This thesis aims at showing the importance of acknowledging the more social aspects of

    pharmaceutical history. By focusing on the SSRI Cipramil, and how it rose to success in

    Sweden, accentuated by the pharmaceutical company H. Lundbeck AB as a safe and modern

    antidepressant, it becomes clear that there is more to it than the chemical substance and new

    neurochemical knowledge.

    What follows is a history of pharmaceuticalisation and co-production. The study begins

    in the year 1988 and continues to 2002, identifying three different strands in the process of

    pharmaceuticalisation. The first part is regarding the renegotiation of medical knowledge in

    the applications to the Swedish Medical Products Agency. The second about how the trope of

    a chemical imbalance in the brain took hold and was made a premise for the use of the new

    SSRIs, and the third about how depression was reshaped into a neurochemical, uniform

    disease, where everyone was at risk.

    In conclusion, the thesis provides an example of how, through co-production, the

    pharmaceuticalisation of mental illness took place in Sweden and continues to this day.

    Kan man skriva pastoral poesi så nära Nordpolen?: Arkadiska skildringar i isländska dikter från artonhundratalet2017In: Scripta Islandica: Isländska Sällskapets Årsbok, ISSN 0582-3234, E-ISSN 2001-9416, Vol. 68, p. 309-330Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article focuses on representations of the Pastoral as a landscape aesthetic and literary convention in 19th century Icelandic poetry. Although originating in Classical Greece and Rome, and more attuned to warmer climes, the Pastoral has found its way to the far North. It enters Icelandic poetry sporadically in the 17th and 18th century through translations and parts of Enlightenment Georgica, but comes into its own in the 19th century, as the article shows. The Pastoral appears as a mode in the poetry of Jónas Hallgrímsson (1807–1845), though often fleeting and even elegiac, perhaps owing to the fact that Icelandic summers are short and rather cold. It can have a dark side in such poems, invoked in images of Et in Arcadia ego or an imminent death in nature. The idealized or idyllic version of Pastoral finds its clearest voice in the poems of Steingrímur Thorsteinsson (1831–1913). He wrote poems in which there is perpetual spring or summer in the Nordic Arcadia, lambs gambolling around Icelandic shepherds, who sing their songs and are as gentle and sanguine as their southern counterparts. But Steingrímur’s idyllic descriptions of Nordic nature do often have an interesting symbolic side. A traveller in one of his poems is riding across an Icelandic heath when he suddenly hears the beautiful song of a distant swan, which almost seems to be coming from another world. As is the case in many Romantic poems of various European nations, such encounters with natural phenomena lift the mind of the modern man and often result in a temporary mystical union with the creation. The traveller in Steingrímur’s poem returns to civilization with an elevated spirit, filled with natural harmony. This, in fact, is one of the principal functions of the Pastoral in literature, as scholars have pointed out. On the one hand, the Pastoral is based on the city dweller’s desire to find a retreat in nature, and on the other hand, it depicts his return to civilization, having benefitted from his encounter with nature. The Pastoral view and its artistic conventions were formed during Steingrímur’s extended stay in Denmark, where he was influenced by Danish poets and artists of the Biedermeier period, who idealized nature and presented it as a harmonious whole. Such Biedermeier descriptions included feminine attributes and personifications of nature, as often witnessed in Steingrímur’s own poems.

    Framing Occupy Central: A Frame Analysis of Occupy Central in the People's Daily2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this study a quantitative and a qualitative analysis of 35 articles from the month of October in the Chinese newspaper the People’s Daily (Renmin ribao 人民日报) in regards to the events of Occupy Central in Hong Kong is performed. The Occupy Central movement protested against the decision to not introduce direct election in the election of Chief Executive in the 2017. By means of a framing analysis, the study analyses which frames are the most prevalent in the articles from the People’s Daily. The frames used were conflict, human impact, economic consequence, morality and responsibility. In the articles a total of 91 instances of frames occurring at least once in an article were found.  

     

    The results show that the most common frame was the economic consequence frame occurring 26 times. The second most common frame was the human interest frame. 22, followed by the conflict frame, 19 occurrences. Less common was the responsibility frame, 13, and the least common frame was the morality frame with 11 occurrences.

    Amos: A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary2017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While previous scholarship speculated on reconstructions of the life of Amos the prophet, this commentary focuses on the book carrying his name. According to the traditional view, the core of the book of Amos originated in Israel (the Northern Kingfom) around 750 B.CC.E., during a period of peace and prosperity. Opposing this view, the author argues that the first version of this prophetic book was composed several decades later in Judah, and that it served as a reflection on, and a justification of the downfall of the Northern Kingdom in the 720s B.C.E. This hypothesis helps explain why accusations concerning oppression of the poor are followed by proclamations of punishments affecting the entire nation.

    Vem ska bestämma?: en studie om lärares tankar i Skolvärlden 1970-19792017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    1962 a new swedish schoolsystem was accepted called Comprehensive school. The study observes how the discussion of the new schoolsystem looks like in the Union magazine Skolvärlden during the 1970-1969. The study shows how teachers’ thoughts about a schoolsystem which are including all children, no matter what economic statues the have got. Teachers’ need more time to connect with the pupils’.  In the other schoolsystem they did not have that kind of issues that might occure now. Some children from a less education background find it difficult to fit in in the comprehensive school. Teachers’ do not know how to handle those children which are interrupting their classes. As a reason of that special-need education are developed during the decade. The reason of that is that all children in Sweden from now have to go to school for nine years according to the law.

     

    Teachers’ also believe that the politicians are interfering a lot in school matters. As an example of that Ingvar Carlsson are saying that school need time to reconnect to the new circumstances. Though the former minister of education Olof Palme in the beginning of the decade says that teachers actually need to be more aware of the importance of internationalization in every subject not just the social subjects. Instead teachers rather will prefer to work by them self to implement the new conditions from the curricula and new research. They should instead leave the education to the teachers that actually have got the education and the knowledge about how to teach children. Teachers’ are also irritated of the low wages according to their harder labor circumstances. They believe that other parts of the labor market have got better incomes and conditions.

    Skolvärlden thinks that LO as an organisation connected to the Socialdemokratic party has priveligies that they do not. In the 1975 teachers are prepared to fight for better circumstances and the are very angry at LO who do not want to support them. Skolvärlden thinks that the reason of that is because LO does not think that education is important, which they actually should have thought. The reason of that is because education from now on is very important for a society development.

    Den föränderliga religionsundervisningen: En analys av grundskolans senare års läroplaner från 1962 till 2011 med fokus på hinduismens och kristendomens framställning.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    När jag sitter på mormor och morfars innegård på deras ställe ute på landsbygden i min hemstad Karlskrona har jag alltid njutit av deras berättelser från förr. Dessa berättelser har både uppkommit från ingenstans när de har velat dela med sig om något speciellt men framför allt uppkommer dessa när vi pratar om min utbildning på universitetet. De har alltid varit intresserade av hur det går men även hur utb ildningar har förändrats från deras tid till den utbildningen jag får nu. Något som väckte mitt intresse för min uppsats var när vi satt i somras och pratade om att jag hade läst religionsvetenskap som ämne. Det som mina morföräldrar tog upp var att det att när de gick i skolan fanns det inget som hette religionsvetenskap. De hade något som hette kristendomskunskap. De berättade att de endast läst om kristendomen, ingenting om de andra religionerna. Mina morföräldrar har alltid haft ett stort intresse för att utveckla sina egna kunskaper och försöka hänga med i samtiden. Detta gjorde att vi hamnade i en lång pratstund om ”de andra” religionerna, speciellt hinduism, och jag förklarade att dessa religioner är något som samtliga ska få kunskaper om under sin skolgång. Att mina morföräldrar inte hade fått kunskapen tänkte jag kunde bero på två saker; både på hur samhället såg ut under deras tid och att deras läroplaner inte hade med de andra religionerna. Detta gjorde mig intresserad av att se hur läroplanerna har utvecklats men speciellt hur hinduismen och kristendomen framställts i läroplanerna. Detta för att hinduismen alltid intresserat mig men även för att det skapade ett stort intresse hos mina morföräldrar.

    Water flow, ecological dynamics, and management in the lower Limpopo Valley: a long‐term vie2017In: WIREs Water, ISSN 0935-879X, E-ISSN 2049-1948, Vol. 4, no 5, article id e1228Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this contribution, we review long-term (millennial-decadal scale) river-flow changes, climate interactions, and interlinkage with vegetation dynamics, as well as society and policy, focusing on the lower Limpopo Valley (from the South African border through Mozambique). Drawing on paleoecological data, we address the valley's potential for defining critical ecological thresholds and managing an adaptive ecological landscape, by focusing on the dynamic relationship between different drivers (fire, hydrology, and grass/tree relationships). We briefly review the long-term interactions between water flow, climate variability, and society using archeological records and written sources. Lastly, we analyze the social and political context of water management, focusing on the last 100 years and transboundary water management. We also discuss planning and mitigation in relation to climate change and rainfall extremes that are projected to increase. It is stressed that forward-thinking policies must heed long-term climate variability, hydrology and biological and social impact and to plan and mitigate for environmental events. The discussion also brings to the fore the importance of an adaptable and equitable strategy in cross-border water sharing.

    Negotiating identity and heritage through authorised vernacular history, Limpopo National Park2017In: Journal of social archaeology, ISSN 1469-6053, E-ISSN 1741-2951, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 49-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we assess vernacular history, traditional authority and the use of heritage places as mediums for negotiating ancestry, identity, territory and belonging based on conversations, interviews and visitations to heritage places together with residents in Limpopo National Park. We explore how particular vernacular histories become dominant village history through the authorisation of traditional leaders and their lineage histories and how traditional leaders use heritage places to mediate narratives. Authorised vernacular histories are narratives about mobility and identity, but they are also localised narratives about ‘home’ in terms of access to resources and heritage places. We discuss how lineage histories and traditional authority are mobilised or questioned in the context of the ongoing displacement of local residents through resettlement programmes and make comparisons with the historical experiences of evictions in the neighbouring Kruger and Gonarezhou National Parks. We emphasise the need for residents to remain connected to and in control of heritage places; otherwise, the linkages between these places, ancestral authority, and present-day authority risk being severed.

    Death and Other Untimely Events2017In: Journal of Philosophical Research (JPR), ISSN 1053-8364, E-ISSN 2153-7984, Vol. 42, p. 253-257Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Duncan Purves has recently argued that death is harmful for the person who dies insofar as her life as a whole would have been more valuable for her if her death had not occurred. In response to the much-debated challenge of locating the harmfulness of death in time, Purves suggests a new approach to the challenge, which leads him to locate the harmfulness of death at times after death. In this reply, I show that his attempt to address the challenge does not succeed.
