    Medeltida dryckesglas i Sverige: En fragmenterad historia2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Medieval glasses have for long been a neglected object group in archeological research in Sweden. With that in mind I choose to write about those in my essay. The aim of this paper is to bring the medieval glasses into the archaeological research. I intend to show where you can find medieval glass in Sweden and what kind of glasses have been made. I will also discuss why the archeological research is so limited when it comes to the medieval drinking glasses. The archeological sites for my analysis are Sigtuna, Stockholm, Lödöse and Skanör.

    My theoretical approach is Material agency and I have looked at what role the drinking glasses could have had during the medieval period. I think my essay will show that you can find medieval glasses in trade or exchange contexts and that the medieval glasses absence in the archeological research has more to do with that previous research is poor rather than that glasses do not exist in the medieval period.

    Framtidsskaparna: Vetenskapens ungdomskultur vid svenska läroverk 1930-19702005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation analyzes scientific youth culture at Swedish secondary grammar schools during an era when the faith in science, technology and progress was strong. The aim is to study the production of meaning among the students and the everyday practices they were involved in.

    The students of the secondary grammar schools were involved in a character-building and educative process and they often described themselves as an elite among the youth of the nation. In addition to this, the students of the natural sciences described themselves as future leaders, mainly because they took science and technology to be the most modern and rational school subjects.

    The science students did extra-curricular laboratory work, excursions and longer journeys. I argue that the participants fostered each other in the ability to perform scientific observations through these practices. The students often described a certain set of norms and ideals that made an activity ”scientific”. In order to be a scientist they had to live up to the collective scientific norms of precision and exactness as well as to the hard-working and altruistic ideal of the individual heroes of science.

    In conclusion this dissertation studies how scientific norms, ideals and world views got shaped and reshaped in a local scientific culture. It shows how young scientists taught each other that science was a modern, objective, male, visionary, and rule governed activity.

    On the outskirts of physics: Eva von Bahr as an outsider within in early twentieth century Swedish experimental physics2009In: Centaurus, ISSN 0008-8994, E-ISSN 1600-0498, Vol. 51, no 1, p. 12-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Eva von Bahr (1874–1962) got her doctorate in experimental physics at the Physics Institute atUppsala University in 1908. Subsequently she became the first woman assistant professor in physics inSweden. In the face of many obstacles, she worked as a physicist for six years in Uppsala and Berlin. In1914 she took a position as a school teacher. This article explores von Bahr’s trajectory through academicexperimental physics. It is argued that network connections with male scientists enabled her work. Herassociations were a mix between institutional relationships and informal connections, resulting in what islabeled a ‘hybrid of connections’. Furthermore it is argued that von Bahr became an ‘outsider within’ inacademic experimental physics. Her connections created openings, but these coexisted with hindrances. Itis argued that von Bahr oscillated between being an insider and an outsider which created a fractured identity.Her position and identity was a mix between membership and non-membership. Through examiningvon Bahr’s career this article aims to bring together historical research on women in science and theoreticalwork in science studies. Furthermore, the article argues the analytical value of feminist perspectiveson scientific collaborations as a way to a deeper understanding of the network structures of science.

    On the Outskirts of Physics: Eva von Bahr's Scientific Networks 1909-19142007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish physicist Eva von Bahr (1874-1962) was scientifically successful. After her dissertation (1909) she became the first woman to be hired as an assistant at the Physics Department at Uppsala University. In 1913 she went to Berlin and collaborated with German physicists. She also became close friends with Lise Meitner. In 1914, she, in her own words, “said goodbye” to science and took up work as a teacher in a rural folk school in Sweden. Von Bahr suffered under the Swedish constitution, which prohibited women from holding academic positions (this writing was abolished in 1925). She applied for professorship twice, but her applications were not taken under consideration.

    The first argument in this paper is that scientific networks were important in giving von Bahr opportunities to do work as a physicist despite the legal obstacles. I will discuss the importance of the Uppsala Physics department and professor Knut Ångström who hired her as an assistant. I will also discuss the fruitful network in Berlin that von Bahr benefited from.

    The second main argument in this paper is that von Bahrs position in the scientific networks was gendered and paradoxical: it made her an insider and outsider at the same time. She was part of important scientific communities and worked in highly esteemed environments. But in her own memories and letters she claims to never have wanted a scientific career, and she quit her work even though she could have continued doing it. Her collaborations with scientific elites coexisted with a position and self perception as an outsider, mainly because she was a woman. The overall argument in this paper is that network theories will be richer if we add a gender perspective and an analysis of the power structures. This can be achieved by starting at the outskirts of scientific communities where people like Eva von Bahr lived their scientific lives.

    A search for the sacred - contemporary shamanism in the north of Norway and Sweden2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The research I present within this thesis is a meaning analysis of contemporary shamanism for practitioners in the north of Norway and Sweden. I have used ethnographic research methods of observation, participation, conversations, interviews, context research and analysis of written texts. My aim has been to research the meaning of the sacred in the lives of contemporary shamanic practitioners, by using a theoretical framework from psychology of religion made by Paloutzian (2005). By using this frame I have focused on practitioners understanding of spiritual beliefs and ultimate concerns. As to view how these come forth in expressions of self-definition, values, goals, purposes and attitudes.

    My conclusions have been that contemporary shamanism is viewed as a spiritual understanding of the world that is expressing itself differently within cultural practices and geographical spaces. It is a worldview that is connecting people through shared beliefs and understandings. These understandings create strong values on how we should act with eachother, nature and our own self, as we are viewed as belonging to each other in a spiritual perspective. These values come in conflict with social and political structures built on other values and attitudes. Practitioners speak of a call for change in structures, the need of understanding our history and our belonging with eachother and nature for our own wellbeing and our world to survive. As some engage in social activism and other social engagements, others view their goal as to”walk in beauty”(Gaup 2007).

    Religion, utveckling och social förändring - en religionspsykologisk studie av analys av religion inom utvecklingsarbete2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The role of religion, of religious individuals and organizations, is currently discussed within both a private and public sector of development. I have viewed documents from the World Bank and DFID where the religious presence is a growing fact and previous theories that religion would disappear with economic development have been abandoned. As a result DFID conducted a large study on the importance of religion for development work, RaD 2005-2011, under the directions of Professor Carole Rakodi. Rakodi (2011) concluded that religion was highly related to the success or failure of developmental projects, and to understand the values people had religion needed to be understood within its specific cultural context. She developed an analysis model to conduct this work. I studied this model and decided to view her analyzing method from a different perspective, from the theory of construct of meaning and the role of religion within worldviews by Joseph Silberman (2005) and Chrystal Park (2005). I was curious to see if theory within psychology of religion could bring further understanding of religion and religious actors to the discussion within development, and if analyzing religion from this perspective could better reach the needs described as necessary to conduct productive work. From studies of the public health in Scandinavia DeMarinis (2011) expresses how religious faith has been affected by privatization and secularism. By researching public health she has seen that within society a number of expressions and ways to relate to the sacred have emerged, and she calls for other methods of analyzing religion. A concept of existential meaning-making was constructed and is now being used in research for understanding the function of religion within meaning structures for the well-being of man. The end result of my research became this thesis whereby I am comparing the two methods of analyzing religion and existential meaning by using a hermeneutic method. I have compared their structures to see which dimension they reach, their historical backgrounds and interpretation of concepts like religion, culture, value, well-being and development. The results have been interpreted with the theory by Silberman and Park. Among my conclusions is that the way we view religion has a huge impact for analysis. It affects how projects and policies are constructed and how we meet and relate to people from other cultures. The two methods note similar aspects but the use of the concept of existential meaning-making is able to reach further and provides an answer to challenges seen within development on how to view religion. By using a concept of existential meaning it allows for a broader perspective and inclusion of all relation to the sacred as well as a self-reflective position to our own understanding of important concepts that directly or indirectly affect work with development in the ways of structuring goals, policy and projects.

    Back to the Woods or Into Ourselves?: Kant, Rousseau and the Search for the Essence of Human Nature2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis contributes to a field of Kant’s practical philosophy that has received renewed attention, namely his moral anthropology. While it is true that Kant, in some of his best-known writings, literally says that the fundamental ground of morality must be pure and thus entirely free from admixture with anthropological principles, he nevertheless admits that these “subjective conditions” in human nature that “either hinder or help people in fulfilling the laws of the metaphysics of morals” make up the foundation of all applied ethics. In other words, in order to know if and to which extent human beings are susceptible to moral commands, we need to know our abilities as well as our limitations.

    Kant wrote several works about these topics and his long-term teaching of anthropology shows that he had a continuing interest in the theory of man. Moreover, it is widely acknowledged that Kant, during the mid-1760s was highly influenced by Rousseau. It is hardly a coincidence that Kant’s first reference to the “unchanging nature of human beings” appeared at the same time as Rousseau proclaimed the need of finding the true nature of man – the unmasked being who has not been damaged by social prejudice. In order to understand man and his moral capacities we need to find his true essence or what really constitutes humanity.

    Accordingly, a careful examination of the multifaceted characteristics of human nature is needed in order to understand the very concept of a moral being and to account for his moral progress. I will argue that Kant’s early insights about this need runs like a thread through his entire course of philosophy and that Rousseauian ideas actually affect also his critical ethics. They agree that man is sociable, but also suspicious. He has good predispositions but is likewise susceptible to corruption. My analysis will shed light on man’s eternal balance between conflicting forces and on the means needed for the progress towards the vocation of humankind. This reveals the need of knowing oneself and explains why the question: “what is the human being?” ought to be taken seriously.

    Det nya folkets musik: En studie av några unga folkmusiker1999Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Anders Wennerstrand: Det nya folkets musik. En studie av några unga folkmusiker. Uppsala: Musikvetenskap, 1998. C-uppsats. (60 p).

    Folkmusikens nya villkor och roll i dagens svenska musikliv är inte desamma som för några decennier sedan, utan många genomgripande förändringar har skett. Uppsatsens syfte är att ge en bild av unga folkmusiker och deras situation, med avseende på bland annat bakgrund, synsätt på folkmusiken, dess utveckling och traditionsbegrepp. Uppsatsen bygger på intervjuer under diskussionsliknande former, dels med folkmusikelever vid Malungs folkhögskola, dels med lektor Sven Ahlbäck, ansvarig för folkmusikerutbildningen vid Kungliga Musikhögskolan i Stockholm. Studie visar bland annat att unga folkmusikers sociala och geografiska bakgrund har blivit alltmer skiftande samt att det blivit allt vanligare att möta folkmusiken vid relativt hög ålder, men att detta inte hämmar musikerna själva. Vidare ser vi ett modernt folkmusikbegrepp hos informanterna, nära länkat till en föryngrad uppfattning av traditionsbegreppet. Unga musiker upplever ofta en hämmande påverkan inom det folkmusikaliska arvet, men vill själva sätta musiken i centrum. En stor breddning av folkmusikfältet har skett, vilket välkomnas av den yngre generationen.

    Att översätta världen: Kommunikation och subversivt ärende i Henri Michaux' Voyage en Grande Garabagne2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The principal aim of this dissertation is to uncover signifying patterns in Henri Michaux’s travel fiction Voyage en Grande Garabagne, and to situate the work in a literary as well as an extralinguistic context. Hereby the dissertation seeks to modify the traditional image of both Voyage and Michaux’s entire literary output as creations allegedly cut off from extralinguistic reality, the literary tradition, and the reader. Ever since the first introductions to Michaux, his texts have erroneously been regarded as merely linguistic innovations or as explorations of the author’s inner landscape. The analysis of Voyage, focusing on both form and content, reveals that the work is, on the contrary, connected to sociocultural reality in a variety of ways. Among other things, it satirizes aspects of society such as religious practices, social hierarchies, judicial systems, colonialism and warfare. In many cases the linguistic form contributes to this satire by displaying verbal innovations, nonsense words, and violations of norms.

    By a comparative analysis of Voyage and Carl von Linné’s Iter Laponicum, Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, Denis Diderot’s Supplément au Voyage de Bougainville, André Malraux’s La Tentation de l’Occident and Anquetil-Duperron’s ”Exposition des usages civils et religieux des parses”, the dissertation brings out Michaux’s attacks on hierarchical and firmly established written structures, and on Western society as a whole. Nevertheless, being a text of great complexity, Voyage does not forfeit it’s singularity by inscribing itself in a literary tradition.

    In conclusion the dissertation compares Voyage with two other works by Michaux, Mes propriétés (1929) and ”La marche dans le tunnel” (1943). It argues that in these works, the scene depicted is gradually enlarged, taking in more and more of sociocultural reality. This evolution corresponds to an expanding movement evinced by Michaux’s entire literary output.

    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this master thesis is to explore Internet regulations in Swedish public libraries today. The different regulations and restrictions of the Internet that is the focus of the thesis are time limits, age limits, log-ins, rules and Internet filtering programmes. A survey to public libraries all over the country was conducted and answered by 66 people. The theories that are used to analyse the result are mostly theories of Intellectual freedom. One of the aims of the survey is to look at misusing of the Internet, what they are in librarians’ point of view and how they affect the use of different Internet regulations. According to the majority of the respondents there are many ways to misuse the Internet like for example pornographic materials. The study also describes librarians’ professional ethics when it comes to the Internet. The survey shows that most of the libraries have ethical guidelines and that placing the computers in public places in the library can solve a lot of problems. Using log-ins and monitoring the patron in different ways is also a form of Internet regulation that can limit the patrons’ information options and therefore be a threat towards intellectual freedom and freedom of speech. The main question of this thesis is: how do various regulations of the Internet in public libraries, mainly Internet filters, affect the intellectual freedom of the patrons? The answer is that Internet filters can because of overblocking become a form of censorship, and is something that the American Library Association and the Intellectual Freedom Library Association strongly speaks against. The survey shows however that a lot of public libraries are using Internet filters even though they don’t have to. It also shows that many librarians do not know what kind of Internet filters that are used or how they work.

    Efter pesten: om återhämtningen efter pestepidemin på 1710-talet i Skåne2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    From 1710 to 1713 the plague raged through the Swedish province of Scania. Other studies have been made on how the disease affected the society during the epidemic. This study tries to focus on the recovery afterwards. How did the population and the farmsteads recover after the plague? Statistics from parish registers and cameral records show interesting patterns in the demography, and that the recovery was far from complete 1720. However, due to missing registers and records, many details remain unaccessible for the researcher. An attempt is also made to describe the demographic structure around the years of plague with a simple mathematical model. The model rather successfully mimics the demographic structure, but due to the missing registers and records, there are too many free parameters in the model; consequently the model can not be used to draw any serious conclusions.

    Uppfostringslitteratur ur ett genusperspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By studying parenting literature from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s I try to answer the question; did boys and girls upbringing differ? What rules did the different sexes have to live by according to the literature? And did they change over the time period of my investigation?

    The authors seems to follow the notion that boys and girl holds biological differences which can both help and hinder them to reach their ideals. The ideal woman was under my search period a hardworking, gentle, kind-hearted devoted mother and wife who placed family above all else. Her biological weakness was her sensitivity, which made her an easy target for temptations; by teaching her how to avoid enticement she would become an ideal woman. Because of her weakness a woman was unreliable and therefore had no place in a mans world. The ideal man was strong, independent, noble, and stable. His weakness was his lust for violence that needed to be controlled, not muffled because it could be of use in some situations.

    Even though big society changes occurred under the time period of my search, the advice for girls and boys upbringing methods barely modified. The religions influence decreased in the 1900s also the encouraging of flogging as a method for punishment. There were debates in the literature about whether or not to embrace the new world but the actual changes in nurture before the 1950s were minimal in both girls and boys education.

    SAB och Dewey vid Uppsala universitetsbibliotek: En attitydundersökning bland bibliotekarier på 6 biblioteksenheter2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Library of Uppsala University has decided to change their classification system from the Swedish SAB system to the American Dewey Decimal Classification. One of the main reasons for this decison was that Kungliga biblioteket also has made an exchange between these systems. Due to that, the national bibliography of Sweden classifies Swedish documents according to Dewey Decimal Classification and the SAB system is no longer maintained. A transition to Dewey Decimal Classification will enable Swedish librarians to import foreign catalouge posts and classification codes and will provide them with a common standard between their libraries and other libraries due to the use of the same international classification system. It is disputed whether the Dewey Decimal Classification is equally suitable for all subjects. National aspects, such as geography and history, are not as important to the natural sciences as it is to the humanistics. The transition will also mean a lot of work for the librarians during its process. The purpose of this study is to examine how librarians involved in the transition feel about the transition and to learn about their opinions about the two classification systems. The method I am using is qualative interviews. The theory used in this study is classification theory as it is described by Miguel Benito in the book Kunskapsorganisation: En introduktion till katalogisering, klassifikation och indexering and by Jennifer Rowley and Richard Hartley in Organizing Knowledge: An Introduction to Managing Access to Information . My findings are that the librarians find the exchange to be the right decision for the Library of Uppsala University. They find the classification system differently suitable for different subjects though. The study is a two years master´s thesis.

    Local Religion or Cult-Shopping?: A Sacrificial Site in Burkina Faso2014In: Anthropos: Internationale Zeitschrift für Völker- und Sprachenkunde, ISSN 0257-9774, Vol. 109, no 2, p. 399-409Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Dafra is a sacrificial site near Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Fasos's second-largest and predominantly Muslim city. Dafra has the reputation of being a powerful place where wishes made and confirmed by vows will be fulfilled. People come to Dafra because of illness, infertility, lack of money, failure in school or business, or nightmares. Although at first sight Dafra appears to be an archetypical African shrine, pilgrims are adherents to different religions and come from all over Burkina Faso, neighboring countries, and even from as far as Europe or the U.S.A. The example of Dafra shows that practices which appear to represent "traditional religion" are neither traditional nor homogeneous nor uncontroversial.
