    Remediation, Time and Disaster2016In: Theory, Culture and Society. Explorations in Critical Social Science, ISSN 0263-2764, E-ISSN 1460-3616, Vol. 33, no 5, p. 117-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the deep historical contexts for imagining natural disasters. By focusing on a foundational event in the Western disaster imaginary - the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 - and its remediation across centuries, the paper suggests that the real-time aesthetic of the mediation of extreme nature events that now abounds in contemporary culture is profoundly embedded in processes of historical intermediality. The term remediation is used to denote a genuinely historical mechanism by which past and present (process and event) are simultaneously made visible. Empirically, the paper investigates the superimposition of temporal dimensions in recreations of the ancient disaster from the late 18th century to the present. Using the insights gained from this spectacular case study, the paper ends by arguing that a re-temporalization of historical analysis itself is needed for history to contribute to contemporary concerns with the present as a conjuncture of multiple and conflicting time scales.

    'Showing at one view': Ferdinand Boberg's 'statistical machinery' and the visionary pedagogy of early twentieth-century statistical display2008In: Early Popular Visual Culture, ISSN 1746-0654, E-ISSN 1746-0662, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 35-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article highlights the educational and intermedial discourses that developed around the representation of statistics in museums and temporary exhibitions in the early twentieth century. It is especially concerned with pictorial representations of statistics and the visual realism that were attributed to the statistical media by educational reformers. The article also aims to discuss how experimentation with statistical displays around the turn of the twentieth century can be related to other media usages in the same period. In this perspective, the article describes two statistical pavilions erected by the Swedish architect Ferdinand Boberg for temporary exhibitions in Helsingborg in 1903 and Stockholm in 1909. On these occasions, Boberg developed a figurative method of representing statistics using moving models, or what he referred to as a 'statistical machinery'. This work drew on popular forms of picture statistics, but also on a much wider range of fairground attractions. At the 1909 exhibition, the statistical pavilion was placed in the entertainments section, next to staged enactments and rides, and it is argued that it was from these amusements that Boberg copied and refined techniques to attract the attention of the audience. In the conclusion of the article, there is a brief discussion on the educational, political and aesthetic visions that developed around the statistical museums at the beginning of the twentieth century, and especially in relation to the picture statistics developed by Otto Neurath.

    When Is the Now? Monitoring Disaster in the Expansion of Time2016In: International Journal of Communication, ISSN 1932-8036, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 10, p. 5342-5361Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay inquires into the temporalities that emerge in the context of online news of extreme nature events. It draws on a larger empirical study of what has become a dominant template for online reports on disasters of a different character, scale, and location: short videos, Web TV clips, and series of stills published in a real-time aesthetic frame. In this article, this case study is used as a background for a more theoretical discussion of three temporal registers in particular: (1) the paces and rhythms of the modes of publication and address that this template supports; (2) the interaction of past, present, and future in online news of disasters; and (3) the sense of extended temporalities that emerge from contemporary reports of nature emergencies and geological extremes. The essay also engages with two recurring themes in media history: first, the relationship between new media technologies and the modern notion of an increasingly pervasive culture of the now; and second, the long-standing role of disasters in the history of exploring new media formats and technologies.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Since the early 2000, the Anthropocene has gained momentum as a new geological and historical epoch defined by the pervasive human influence on Earth systems. The anthropocene concept is widely used both in the scientific literature and elsewhere. The idea of an Age of Man changes our understanding of the relationship between natural and cultural processes and how different societies are interconnected across time and space. One of the challenging aspects of the anthropocene concept is the consequences for the understanding of natural disasters. Traditionally, natural disasters developed along the nature-society interface where the severity depends on the magnitude of the natural hazard and the human vulnerability. However, within the anthropocene framework, natural hazards can be understood as hybrid processes partly controlled by the human influence on Earth systems. The best examples of such hybrid processes are within the climate-related hazards such as heatwaves and floods.

    Examining Accuracy: Drönare och drönarangrepp: retorik, praktik och historia2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The military conflicts of the early 21st century have seen the introduction and rise of a new military technology: the armed drone. With the United States acting as the driving force behind this technological advancement, the U.S Air Force and intelligence agency CIA have madedrones their weapon of choice for pursuing suspected terrorists and insurgents in various remotelocations. American military leaders and policy makers assert that the armed drone’s high levelof accuracy make it the best available weapons platform for this task. However, new researchshows that the use of drones may result in more civilian casualties than previously thought, andmay in fact be more fallible than conventional aircraft in this respect. This paper examines this discrepancy between rhetoric and practice, and attempts to find potential causes for this in the development and early use of the first armed drone, the MQ-1 Predator. The paper cites statements from President Barack Obama and CIA director John Brennan and contrasts them with a recent research report on drone-caused civilian casualties, as well as examples of drone strikes where the wrong targets were struck. The analysis of the development and early use of the Predator Drone draws comparisons to Donald Mackenzie’s account of the development of accuracy for cold-war-era intercontinental ballistic missiles, applying the science and technology-concepts he uses to the case of the armed drone. The paper concludes with the argument that the accuracy of the early armed drones is fundamentally misunderstood or overestimated by U.S leaders, and that there are circumstances in the development-history of the system that may have contributed to this inconsistency.

    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen syftar till att analysera politiska aktörers agerande för att framställa sin hållning inför folkomröstningen om kärnraften 1980 som trovärdig och rationell. Studien undersöker historiska källor i form av informationstätt opinionsmaterial samt statliga utredningar och propositioner med anknytning till folkomröstningen. Undersökningen är baserad på den teoribildning inom teknik- och vetenskapssociologi som kallas science and technology studies – STS. Det analytiska verktyg som källmaterialet analyseras utifrån är begreppet energisäkerhet. Undersökningen visar att en stor del av debatten som förs i opinionsmaterialet kan förklaras i termer av energisäkerhet. Aktörernas argumentation angående kärnkraften och de alternativa energikällornas fördelar och nackdelar tydliggörs och förklaras. Dessutom visar studien hur opinionsmaterialet förhåller sig till de av staten framtagna beslutsunderlagen.

    Om den humanistiska tolkningen av Mores Utopia2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En traditionell uppfattning som den humanistiska tolkningen tog över från tidigare tolkningar var att Utopia är att betrakta som Mores egen idealstat, något som innebar att den ursprungliga frågeställningen främst gällde vilken sorts ideal denne strävat efter att beskriva. Som vi senare kommer att se så tycks det dock som att denna bild gradvis har framstått som alltmer problematisk när man väl börjat analysera Utopia som ett verk författat inom en viss historisk och kulturell kontext, varför man började anpassa den för att överensstämma med en ökad kunskap om More och hans samtid. Från att ursprungligen ha betraktas som relativt självklar har således bilden av Utopia som en utopi under 1900-talet kommit att bli föremål för debatt, såväl när det gäller vilken sorts ideal More ville förmedla, i vilken grad han avsåg att göra detta, och till slut också huruvida detta alls var hans avsikt.

    Ett övergripande syfte med denna uppsats är att studera denna utveckling för att undersöka hur och varför bilden av Utopia som en entydig skildring av ett idealsamhälle kom att förändras när verket studerades under den humanistiska tolkningens premisser. För att klargöra detta förhållande lyfts ett antal läsningar av Utopia inom den humanistiska tolkningen fram för att analyseras. Styrande frågeställningar blir här hur man inom dessa väljer att framställa Mores verk, vilka argument man använder sig av för att befästa denna tolkning och eventuella bakomliggande motiv för dessa, hur man förhåller sig till de problem som uppstår när den traditionella bilden av Utopia möter den humanistiska tolkningens perspektiv, samt hur de olika tolkningarna förhåller sig till varandra. En genomgående tes i denna undersökning blir att förändringen i perspektiv har drivits av en växande insikt om att det utopiska samhällsystemet representerar en moral- och samhällssyn som är oförenlig med de ideal som historiskt kan kopplas till More, och att det är denna motsättning mellan den traditionella bilden av Utopia och den kunskap som uppnåtts genom det tillgängliga historiska materialet som har format diskussionen inom den humanistiska tolkningen, och som har lett den i riktning mot en alltmer ambivalent inställning till Utopia som utopi.

    Ett sekundärt syfte är att använda slutsatserna från denna undersökning till att analysera hur de förändringar som skett inom den humanistiska tolkningen har kommit att påverka synen på verket som helhet, samt vilka tolkningsmöjligheter de öppnar för. Härigenom öppnas även möjligheten att diskutera Utopia på ett mer abstrakt plan som ett exempel på en av de många klassiska texter som har lästs om omtolkats under lång tid. Genom att betraktas ur detta perspektiv kan frågan om Utopias mening anses belysa en mer allmängiltig frågeställning gällande vår förståelse av historiska texter. På samma sätt avses även forskningen kring Utopia att betraktas ur ett större perspektiv. Tanken är att denna kan lyftas fram som ett exempel på den utveckling som skett inom studiet av historiska texter under 1900-talet, men även på de strukturella förändringar som ständigt pågår inom den vetenskapliga forskningen generellt. Fokus ligger här på den inre dynamik som kan urskiljas i den forskning som utgör studieobjektet, men även på de yttre omständigheter som kan anses ha påverkat den allmänna bilden av Utopia, och därmed även hur man har kommit att betrakta verket.

    Utanför "vetenskapens råmärken": Svenska astronomer och frågan om utomjordiskt liv under perioden 1880-19402008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

     

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att studera hur svenska astronomer under perioden 1880-1940 närmade sig frågan om utomjordiskt liv. En stor vikt har lagts vid att se på vilket sätt som frågan om utomjordiskt liv hörde till populärvetenskapen, och hur detta påverkade det sätt som astronomerna skrev om den på. Ett vidare syfte har varit att undersöka på vilket sätt som frågan var förbunden med dåtida inomvetenskapliga och utomvetenskapliga åskådningar. I samband med detta uppmärksammas Svante Arrhenius idé om panspermi, det vill säga att livet hade kommit till jorden från yttre rymden, och hur denna idé förutsatte ett biologiskt universum. Uppsatsen avslutas med ett försök till att nyansera de utomvetenskapliga följderna av idén om ett biologiskt universum.

    Participation as Pedagogy – Imagined Race and the Exhibit of Swedish Peoples-Types.

    This essay will analyse and give a deeper picture of the ”The Exhibit of Swedish People-Types” by focusing on the pedagogical ideals that formed the exhibit as an participatory media. The exhibit was led by the famous race-biologist Herman Lundborg and toured Sweden in 1919 displaying the racial constitution of the Swedish population using material gathered by the public itself. The exhibit has been described as an important tool in popularising eugenics in Swedish society during the early 20th century with the ambition of gaining funds to create the first race-biological institute and to influence policy-making. Nevertheless there has not been a single study which has focused solely on the exhibit and how the pedagogical ideals that permeated it affected the relation between the public and the media itself nor the political implications of this relation. I will show that the interactive participation enacted through the exhibit both defined a hierarchical relation between public and race-biological expertise, as well as it articulated a new “imagined community”, i.e., an “imagined race”. This participatory relation was not only key in creating the exhibit but also had implications on how the public should position itself and act in relation to society at large regarding eugenic matters. This gives me an opportunity to deepen our historical knowledge of the eugenics-movement and main-line racebiological networks in early 20 h century Swedish society. This essay also contribute to the history of participatory media and the popularisation of science.

    The Eloquence of Speechlessness: Hybridity, Sexed Bodies, and Astonishment in Kant’s Theory of Epigenesis2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Keywords: Immanuel Kant (

    narratives in European naturalism and political anatomy. Yet the concept surfaces in gender historical research on the period in foot notes and cursory remarks. This paper interrogates why epigenesis has been eradicated from the historical consciousness of today’s scholarship on gender politics. By honing in on the weirdness, a term borrowed from Lorraine Daston, in and of Immanuel Kant’s (1724-1804) theory on animal generation I show how an alertness it requires a re-evaluation of views on "political anatomy" taken-for-granted in scholarship, but also of Kant’s philosophy itself. The endeavour is divided into three main sections.

    In the first, I situate the failure of Kant-scholars to, in the words of John H. Zammito, "stabilize" epigenesis by exploring the hitherto unacknowledged peculiarity of Kant’s use racial hybridity to ‘prove’ the theory. In the second, the analysis departs from the notion ‘modern sex difference’ and show that a reading of epigenesis requires a re-thinking of sexed bodily identity in terms of conflict and contradiction. The third section reads this strife in light of Kant’s experience of "astonishment", a cognitive mode, I argue, designed to resolve both physiological and ideological inconsistencies. The antinomy of sex differentiation is in a concluding section juxtaposed with Kant’s phrase "eloquent speechlessness" in which the gender practice activated in the writing of, about, and on epigenesis is compared to the structure informing moral philosophy’s definition of lies.

    The End of Piracy: Rethinking the History of German Print Piracy in the Early Nineteenth Century2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is an historical study of the German book trade in the early decades of the nineteenth century. In this period, German states passed authorial rights reforms that prompted energetic discussions about the definition of authorship and unauthorized reprinting. What was to count as a new publication? What was authorship? How did it differ from book piracy? By addressing these questions, this dissertation advances two principal arguments. The first deals with the idealist reconceptualization of authorship that took place around 1800. I argue that the spread of idealist authorship helped book merchants market recycled publications as new works and defend their publications against the charge of piracy. My second argument concerns the size of the German reprinting industry. Against the widespread view that print piracy came to an end in the early nineteenth century, I argue that disputes over the definition of unauthorized reprinting made the size of the German reprinting industry a contentious matter.

    The study consists of three empirical chapters. The first examines reactions to the confederal ban on unauthorized reprinting from 1837, as well as the construction of authorship that philosophers such as Immanuel Kant and Johann Gottlob Fichte helped establish around 1800. The second chapter explores the history of the Stuttgart publisher Carl Erhard’s Conversations-Lexikon, a publication that was at the heart of the debates studied here. The third chapter focuses on the Leipzig book fair catalog and efforts to quantify the number of new German books published each year. Attempts to quantify new publications raised pressing questions about the difference between new works and reprints. In the ensuing discussions, disputes over the definition reprinting evolved into disagreements over the prevalence of piracy on the book market. In this regard, the controversies raised over the definition of unauthorized reprinting offer lessons about much more than a particular moment in the history of piracy. Taken together, the three chapters grapple with the power of words to not only describe things and practices, but also to shape our perception of entities such as the market.

    Medveten kommunikation?: En fallstudie av svensk AIDS-forskning2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie kommer att behandla ämnet om mediastrategier inom svensk HIV/AIDS-forskning. Under hela 1980-talet kom HIVAIDS att spela en betydande roll i samhället, framförallt inom den växande mediasvären. Uppmärksamheten runt en sjukdom var av ett slag som inte tidigare upplevts framförallt för läkarna som behandlade de sjuka i den omfattning de hade möjlighet. Min ambition under detta arbete är att undersöka hur forskarna idag arbetar mot media för att undvika problem med att misstolkas. Hur medveten är arbetet, finns det en tydlig strategi för att undvika en situation som den på 1980-talet då det förekom stor förvirring runt sjukdomen. Undersökningen har baserats på pressmeddelanden från Karolinska institutet vars innehåll fått svara för hur forskarnas strategi utformats. En viktig komponent för analysen har varit att se hur medicinens inre normer påverkat deras sätt och omfattning i vilket de agerat. Genom analysen har det framkommit att forskarnas relation till media idag är mycket professionell och genomtänkt. Det som kan begrundas är att de givetvis alltid kan förbättra sina metoder för interaktion med media. Faran som finns är deras självuppfattning vilket kommer att styra deras framtida ambitioner gällande sitt informationsarbete.

    Studentens lyckliga dar: Om representationen av upsaliensiskt studentliv på 1860- och 1870-talen i memoarer2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this Masters thesis is to examine the representation of student life in Uppsala in the 1860s and 1870s in memoirs. This purpose is achieved by contextualising the memoirs in two different analyses. In the first, the representation of student life in the memoirs is compared to that in another literary genre, the university novel, and it is found that the two representational forms paint completely contradictory pictures, where in the novels the higher education is depicted as rotten and in dire need of reformation, whereas in the memoirs the system, albeit somewhat flawed, works. The memoirs and the novels thus seem to be competing systems of representation, created in different discourses, wherein the purpose and nature of higher education widely differed. In the second analysis, the examination of the memoirs is based on research concerning the nation building process in Sweden during the 19th century. The representation of student life in the memoirs fits well into this process, the stories of carnivals, of the drill of the special student militia and, especially, of the abundant student male choir singing, creates a picture of students as a defined societal group with a special political agenda. This place in society is idealized, the male choir singers are, for example, depicted as an avant-garde of national consciousness, and depicted as mainly harmonious

    Sofia Finth Juhlin: Att sätta ord på det obegripliga. Uppsala universitet: Inst. för idé- och lärdomshistoria, C-uppsats, vårtermin, 2017.

    Denna uppsats syftar på att beskriva etableringen av begreppet skolskjutning i svenska dagstidningar mellan 1989–2007. Studien utgår från de fyra största dagstidningarna Expressen, Dagens nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet och Aftonbladet, men tar även stöd av material publicerat från Skolverket och Brottförebyggande rådet. Studien gör anspråk på att se likheter och skillnader mellan beskrivningen av olika våldsdåd med skjutvapen i skolor ur ett västerländskt perspektiv. Våldsdåden som studien fokuserar på är Raumanmeriskolan i Finland, Columbine High School i USA, Virginia Tech i USA och Jokelaskolan i Finland.  Det beskrivs även upp andra våldsdåd med skjutvapen i skolor men det är endast för att ge läsaren ett bredare perspektiv över förändringen av begreppet skolskjutning.

    Keywords: Skolskjutning, våldsdåd, skolmassaker, dagstidningar, Skolverket, dödsskjutning

    Uppsalas nya civilingenjörer: Bildning för (det tekniska) livet2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to describe and analyze how the development of technology and social change came to influence the Faculty of Science and Technology which during the fall of 2000 launched two new master programs in engineering. These programs were of a new kind where elements which traditionally had not been a big part of such educations made up a uniquely large part of the content. The ambition is to show how and why these elements came to be increasingly sought, and what they consisted of. To do this a study of meeting protocols from the elementary education committee from the years before the programs started was made. In these protocols the goal was to, from a perspective of technological development and social change, analyze how the contents of these programs were discussed. This was also connected to a perspective of education and learning – what should be taught during education and why?

    Chemistry at the Swedish Board of Mines, 1700-17502006In: 5th international conference on history of chemistry: chemistry, technology and society: Proceedings, 2006, p. 150-156Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper sets out to cast new light on the relationship between mining and chemistry in Sweden during the first part of the eighteenth century.

    During the period, chemistry was mainly pursued by officials at the Board of Mines, the government agency for control of the mining industry. There, chemistry was to a large extent considered an auxilliary science to the industry, and was used to improve and control mining practices.

    The paper studies chemistry’s dependence on the Board of Mines as a support structure, and as a nurturing matrix in which it could evolve theoretically and define itself as a cluster of theories and methods independent from alchemy. For example, it was in their capacities as employees of the Swedish Board of Mines that Georg Brandt and Axel Fredrik Cronstedt conducted the mineralogical investigations that would lead to their discoveries of cobalt (discovered by Brandt in 1730) and nickel (discovered by Cronstedt in 1751).

    A central argument is that chemistry fulfilled not only scientific, but also social functions at the Board. It served to preserve the social status of the often high born officials. In order to advance at the Board, they had to learn and practice the skills of craftsmen such as assayers. While an eighteenth-century nobleman could be a learned man, he could not be a craftsman (or at least not admit that he was one). By making craft procedures a subordinated part of chemistry, an intellectual pursuit, an imagined or factual decline of social status could be avoided. Thus the hand was not elevated above the head, or rather the “heads” of the Board of Mines were not brought down to the level of the miners and other craftsmen they were meant to control.

    It is furthermore argued that chemistry became surprisingly “modern” in this context, and that important concepts that were later to be taken up by such chemists as Torbern Bergman and Antoine Laurent Lavoisier were originally developed in this setting.
