    Why I am a historian2013In: Scandia, ISSN 0036-5483, Vol. 79, no 2, p. 68-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of the historian, it is argued here, is similar to that of an interpreter: the historian's task of making the past comprehensible to modern readers can be compared to the task of interpreting for refugees who have just arrived in a new country. Both the historian and the interpreter are, or should be, intensely aware of their responsibility in rendering the information with which they are entrusted in a truthful manner. People in the modern world are quite capable of learning from the past. Yet the past is not immediately accessible, and there is no quick fix to learning about the past. In a metaphorical sense, it is the job of the professional historian to help people draw conclusions from the past. This does not mean that there are right and wrong conclusions in a simplistic sense; it does, however, mean that some conclusions are more valid and more easily defended given the norms or styles of reasoning that pertain within the community of historians. While pluralism is good for the discipline of history, the practical problems that may result from pluralism cannot be ignored. Thus, history is now such a sprawling and multifaceted field that it is hard, not to say impossible, to survey and evaluate its results. As the present article suggests, perhaps it is time to devote more energy to cooperative and synthetic endeavours with a view to establishing what all our knowledge means.

    Abstract [sv]

    Att mäta forskningens genomslag kan uppmuntra opportunism och kortsiktighet och därmed leda till sänkt kvalitet, skriver Sven Widmalm och Maria Ågren. Om Sverige inför ett system för att mäta samverkan behöver forskarsamhället tänka i nya banor, och hänsyn måste tas till utbildningens grundläggande betydelse för genomslag.

    Does Oil Price Uncertainty Transmit to Stock Markets?2006Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The paper presents an empirical study of volatility spillover from oil prices to stock markets within an asymmetric BEKK model. Using weekly data on the aggregate stock markets of Japan, Norway, Sweden, the U.K., and the U.S., strong evidence of volatility spillover is found for all stock markets but the Swedish one, where only weak evidence is found. News impact surfaces show that, although statistically significant, the volatility spillovers are quantitatively small. The stock market’s own shocks, which are related to other factors of uncertainty than the oil price, are more prominent than oil shocks.

    Essays on Prospect Theory and the Statistical Modeling of Financial Returns2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of three self-contained essays

    Essay 1 presents an empirical study of volatility spillover from oil prices to stock markets within an asymmetric BEKK model. Using weekly data on the aggregate stock markets of Japan, Norway, Sweden, the U.K., and the U.S., strong evidence of volatility spillover is found for all stock markets but the Swedish one, where only weak evidence is found. News impact surfaces show that, although statistically significant, the volatility spillovers are quantitatively small. The stock markets’ own shocks, which are related to other factors of uncertainty than the oil price, are more prominent than oil shocks.

    Essay 2 replicates the study of Benartzi and Thaler (1995), who suggest a behavioral explanation to the equity premium puzzle by myopic loss aversion. A technical extension to their methodology is suggested where conditional heteroskedasticity is incorporated when simulating returns, in place of the original temporal independence assumption. Swedish data is considered in addition to U.S. data. First, it is found that myopic loss aversion can explain the U.S. equity premium over bonds, although the obtained evaluation periods are somewhat shorter than a year. For example, over the full U.S. sample period from 1926 to 2003, evaluation periods of seven and ten months are found using the original and new approach to simulating returns, respectively. Second, myopic loss aversion suggestively explains the Swedish equity premium as well, which is new to the literature. Third, throughout the analysis of both data sets, longer evaluation periods are obtained under conditional heteroskedasticity. The last result indicates that myopic loss-averse and, in turn, cumulative prospect theory investors are sensitive to the distributional assumption made on returns.

    Essay 3 relates cumulative prospect theory to the moments of returns distributions, e.g. skewness and kurtosis, assuming returns are normal inverse Gaussian distributed. The normal inverse Gaussian distribution parameterizes the first- to fourth-order moments, making the investigation straightforward. Cumulative prospect theory utility is found to be positively related to the skewness. However, the relation is negative when probability weighting is aside. This shows that cumulative prospect theory investors display a preference for skewness through the probability weighting function. Furthermore, the investor’s utility is inverse hump-shape related to the kurtosis. Consequences for portfolio choice issues are studied. The findings, among others, suggest that optimal cumulative prospect theory portfolios are not mean-variance efficient under the normal inverse Gaussian distribution.

    Minsta motståndets väg: En diskursanalys av två svenska dagstidningars framställning av klimatansvar2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The topic of climate change has received an increasing amount of media attention during recent years and the Swedish people’s individual awareness of environmental issues seems to be higher than ever. The individual is pointed out as having a big responsibility, but despite climate campaigns, the Swedes’ collective carbon footprint continues to increase. This paper aims to, through discourse analysis; examine how responsibility for lowering the carbon footprint and adapting to climate change is construed in two Swedish newspapers, Dagens Nyheter and Uppsala Nya Tidning.Swedish climate responsibility turned out to be diffuse, the individual was encouraged to take responsibility to change but not fully expected to. The perspective that was strongest in this discourse analysis was that of ecological modernization where continued consumption, growth and development of ”green technologies" is expected to bring Sweden out of its climate crisis without noticeable changes in lifestiles or structures. Climate adaptation is portrayed as something ”fun” and easy and many alternative perspectives are kept in periphery of the current debate.

    Internets utveckling har banat väg för nya sätt att kommunicera. Inom den svenskavinindustrin har aktörer länge varit bundna till en icke interaktiv marknadsföring. Socialamedier och användarskapad information har blivit ett kraftfullt verktyg inom nämnda industrii takt med att konsumenter alltmer cyniskt genomskådar illa maskerad relationsretorik.Samtidigt har det svenska monopolet haft en mycket stor roll i hur kulturen ochkonsumtionsmönstren kring vininköp sett ut i Sverige. Men privata aktörer som direktkonkurrerar med Systembolaget har ställt detta i ny dager. Den största av dessa aktörer ärvinklubben Australian Wine Club.

    Kan den ideala medarbetaren skapas?: en studie om identitetsformande åtgärder i en organisation2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Working life has changed with the technological innovations and the emergence of a service society. Today the workplace is characterized by flexibility and the employers' control of their employees have moved focus from the physical control of the individual to focus more on the individual's insides. In a flexible world where one can work from the office but also from home, the organization has a great need to have employees carrying out their work even when the employer is not present. Interest in self-regulating co-workers that govern themselves in their actions according to the organization desires has grown. This paper aims to examine how an organization through various methods strive to shape self-regulating co-workers who share and deliver in accordance with organizational values and goals. The study shows that through the use of artifacts and stories, the formulation of common morals and values , performance management and evaluation and use of a hierarchical structure provides clear references to their employees in how to act. The study also shows that employees can take on values and goals as far as they themselves are willing to live up to and follow the morals and values of the organization.

    Vad händer med åsikterna?: Järvadialogen som kommunikationsinsats2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The area of Järvafältet in the northern parts of Stockholm is one of the many large-scale investments into Swedish residency executed in the 60’s and 70’s, and which got the name Miljonprogrammet. Not until today these buildings have been restored, and frustration has been brewing in these areas for some time. Järvadialogen is the name of a communication program connected to the housing restoration in the area of Husby, which is a part of Järvafältet, and functions as a promotional and informational dialogue between residents in the area and those responsible for the communication program. The cultural diversity in the area of Husby is significant, and with theories on intercultural communication, change communication and power we study the performed communicative process and the manner in which it is received. How is the communication program Järvadialogen shaped and performed, and how are the messages sent received and interpreted? This following study looks at how the communication program Järvadialogen is designed and carried out, as well as how the communication is received. It questions what happens to the opinions? and by performing an extensive text analysis complemented by personal interviews along with group interviews the study explores both sender and receiver perspectives. Methods and theories bring to light the importance of building a relationship among sender and receiver, power relations and change communication. Cultural aspects are evaluated and criticized in regards to communication performance, and more specifically this study shows that the existing frustration in connection to the communication program in Husby is not a result of miscommunication, but of a sense of exclusion, which originates in socio- and economic differences.

    Erasing Fear: Effect of Disrupting Fear Memory Reconsolidation on Central and Peripheral Nervous System Activity2012Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Fear memories, here defined as learned associations between a stimulus and a physiological fear reaction, are formed through fear conditioning. In animals, fear memories, present in the lateral amygdala, undergo reconsolidation after recall. Moreover, this reconsolidation process can be disrupted both pharmacologically and behaviourally, resulting in a reduced fear response to the stimulus. This thesis examines the attenuation of fear memories by disrupting reconsolidation in humans, using measures of both the central and peripheral nervous system activity. Serotonergic and dopaminergic genes have previously been tied to both fear conditioning and anxiety disorders, where fear conditioning mechanisms are important. In order to evaluate the possible role of fear memory reconsolidation mechanims in the effect on fear and anxiety by these genes, this thesis also compare the reconsolidation disruption effect between different serotonergic and dopaminergic genotypes.

    Study I examined the attentuation of fear memories by disrupting reconsolidation in humans using reacquisition as a measure of the return of fear. Moreover, study I investigated the impact of differences in serotonergic and dopaminergic alleles on this process.

    Study II examined the attentuation of fear memories by disrupting reconsolidation in humans using reinstatement as a measure of the return of fear. Study II also investigated the impact of differences in serotonergic and dopaminergic alleles on the process of fear memory reconsolidation.

    Study III used psychophysiology and fMRI to localize the functional neural activity mediating the fear memory reconsolidation disruption effect.

    In summary, this thesis provides evidence that fear memories are attenuated by reconsolidation disruption in humans and that serotonergic and dopaminergic alleles influence this process. Moreover, this thesis support that human fear memory reconsolidation is amygdala-dependent, suggesting an evolutionary shared memory mechanism.

    Abstract [en]

    Fear memory persistence, central for the development and maintenance of anxiety disorders, is partially genetically controlled. Recently, consolidation and reconsolidation processes have been reported to affect fear memory stability and integrity. This study explored the impact of reconsolidation processes and genetic make-up on fear reacquisition by manipulating reconsolidation using extinction performed outside or inside a reconsolidation interval. Reacquisition measured by skin conductance responses was stronger in individuals that extinguished outside (6 h) than inside (10 min) the reconsolidation interval. However, the effect was predominantly present in val/val homozygotes of the functional val158met polymorphism of the Catechol O-methyltransferase (COMT) enzyme and in short allele carriers of the serotonin transporter length 5-HTTLPR polymorphism. These results demonstrate that reconsolidation of human fear memory is influenced by dopamine and serotonin related genes.

    Abstract [en]

    Disruption of fear reconsolidation results in permanent memory suppression in fear conditioning protocols in animals and humans. Serotonergic and dopaminergic polymorphisms have been associated to this process. Specifically, reacquisition of fear after disrupted reconsolidation was compromised in human short alle carriers of the serotonin transporter gene linked polymorphic region (5-HTTLPR) and in val/val homozygotes of the val158met catechol-O-methyltransferease (COMT) functional polymorphisms. The present study examined if the gene effects similarly would impact reinstatement, another measure reflecting return of fear, following unpaired shock presentations. Skin conductance responses served as the measure of acquisition, extinction and return of fear. During the reinstatement session return of fear tended to be stronger in in val/val homozygotes of the COMT polymorphism who extinguished outside (6 h) as compared to inside (10 min) the reconsolidation interval following a memory reminder. Carriers of the short allele of the 5-HTTLPR polymorphism displayed a similar pattern in response to the previously shock associated cue. These results partially replicate for reinstatement the gene effect demonstrated previously for reacquisition, but fail to conceptually replicate the main effect averaged over all genotypes. Collectively, data support that reconsolidation of human fear memory is influenced by dopaminergic and serotonergic genes.

    Human reconsolidation: A reactivation and update2014In: Brain Research Bulletin, ISSN 0361-9230, E-ISSN 1873-2747, Vol. 105, p. 70-82Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The reconsolidation hypothesis states that memories, when reactivated, enter a transient, labile state followed by a re-stabilization termed reconsolidation. By affecting the reconsolidation process, memory persistence can be influenced, leading to memory enhancement or decrement. This is a time-dependent process and the result of modulating reconsolidation is present only after the reconsolidation process is completed. Historically, reconsolidation research has been performed on non-human animals, since the methods originally used for reconsolidation disruption are not safe. However, there now exist several techniques safe for humans, and consequently, in recent years, papers on human reconsolidation have emerged. Here, the existing literature on human reconsolidation is reviewed and discussed, including studies on fear memories, appetitive memories, procedural memories, and declarative memories. Methods of memory reactivation are compared between studies, and the consistency and lack of consistency in results over reactivation methods and memory types are discussed. These results provide future challenges, both experimental and clinical, in defining the boundary conditions and mechanisms governing the reconsolidation phenomenon. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled 'Memory Enhancement'.
