    The Marketplace of Ideas: The Rhetoric and Politics of Tax Reform in Sweden and the United States1995In: Polity, ISSN 0032-3497, E-ISSN 1744-1684, Vol. XXVIII, no 1, 1-23 p.Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article analyzes the politics and rhetoric of tax reform in the United States (1986) and Sweden (1990). The two cases show that loosely regulated idea markets may yield policies that are more uneven, less consistent with the rhetorical claims made for them, and less strongly supported by the public than is the case with tightly regulated idea markets.

    Scholars Across the Seas: The American Scandinavian Foundation and the Sweden America Foundation in the Trans-Atlantic Exchange of Knowledge2008In: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 40, no 1-2, 100-125 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the academic and cultural relationships between Sweden and the U.S in the early 20th century. It focuses on the activities of two key institutions, the Sweden-America Foundation in Stockholm and the American-Scandinavian Foundation in New York. Both foundations were established in the second decade of the 20th century and sought to promote educational and cultural exchanges and contacts between Sweden and the United States. Although the foundations had similar goals, the reasons behind their establishment were quite different. The American foundation had one root in the development of Scandinavian-American ethnic communities. Another source of origin can be traced to a growing interest in medieval England, Old English, and Anglo-Saxon in American universities, in which Scandinavia came to occupy a privileged position. The Swedish foundation was established partly as a result of a Swedish cultural and academic reorientation following World War I, away from Germany towards the U.K. and the U.S. The effects of the work of both foundations have been significant, both in establishing close academic contacts between Sweden and the U.S. and in creating improving and promoting closer cultural and political ties between the two countries.

    "Very Welcome Home Mr. Swanson": Swedish Americans Encounter Homeland Swedes2016In: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 48, no 2, 107-121 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines different patterns of interaction between Swedish Americans and the homeland, and my interest is in the significance and consequences of these encounters. The mass emigration of some 1,3 million Swedes in the 19th and early 20th centuries was a fundamental event in Swedish history, and as a result a separate social and cultural community Swedish America was created in the U.S. and a specific population group of Swedish Americans emerged. Close to a fifth of these Swedish Americans returned to Sweden, and in their interaction with the old homeland they were seen as a distinct group in Sweden and became carriers of a specific American experience. Swedish Americans thus became a visible sub-group in Sweden and it is the significance of this population that I am interested in. The article looks at both material and immaterial effects of the return migration and at the larger significance of Swedish America and Swedish Americans for Sweden.

    The Future Gaze: City Panoramas as Politico-Emotive Geographies2009In: Journal of Visual Culture, ISSN 1470-4129, E-ISSN 1741-2994, Vol. 8, no 1, 25-53 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we show how the abstract city — media representations of city panoramas and the factual physical silhouette standing in for the city itself in the distance — is constituted as an emotive geography and how the production of such vistas is a political project, whose aim is to activate a future gaze . Through analysing two cities — Montreal in 1967 and contemporary Shanghai — we demonstrate how the mediatized production of urban panoramas sustains a sense of futurity through two (overlapping) forms: the conjunctional and the hyper-representational. We argue that together these panoramas invite an emotive future gaze which, through the combination of practical enactment, haptic movement in the city and political vision, constitutes an ideological force of modern urbanism. By introducing the conceptual framework of encapsulation/decapsulation, we propose a way of deepening the understanding of the symbolic and emotional negotiations involved in the production of spectacular city landscapes.

    Gazing at Pudong - 'With a Drink in Your Hand' : Time Travel, Mediation, and Multisensuous Immersion in the Future City of Shanghai2007In: The Senses and Society, ISSN 1745-8927 , Vol. 2, no 2, 155-172 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Chinese mega city of Shanghai is currently undergoing a radical restructuring of its infrastructure and urban fabric and aspires to become a future city and a world center. This article delineates an encapsulation of a future gaze in the city among cosmopolitan visitors, mediated through travel reporting, travel guides and expatriate websites. Shanghai is a multi-sensuous and highly engaging geography. The city invokes a future gaze which, in contrast with the alleged detachment of the tourist gaze, has to be interpreted in terms of an immersion of the whole body, and in relation to acts of drinking and eating in the chronotopes of nostalgic dwelling – the mansion garden and the restaurant. In addition, futurology in Shanghai is dependent upon a craze for history and as travelers engage with and perform a collective memory of the Golden Age of the twenties and thirties, the city enacts a specific experience of time travel.  This article shows how analyzing the intersensorium may contribute to a more critical evaluation of how visitors make sense of and contribute to the transformation in the city and further probes how sensory response, sentiment, memory and mediation work together.

    Travels in Thirdspace: Experiential Suspense in Mediaspace – the Case of America (un)known2008In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, Vol. 23, no 3, 343-363 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What happens to people’s relationship to places that have been subjected to a high degree of mediation? The aim of this article is to engage in current debates on mediaspace and the mediatization of travelling, by offering an empirical and conceptual qualification to this discussion, through a study of the experiences of Swedes travelling in the US in the 1950s. This paper shows that in understanding the relationship between communication and geography it is vital that we focus on the level of experience and on what Edward Soja following Henri Lefebvre calls thirdspace. The argument is that while the journeys were scripted, travellers’ ’knowledge’ of the land was seriously challenged as they ended up in thirdspace suspense, displaced in a country which was both fiction and fact, known and unknown. Studying the intersection of travelling and mediation will render new insights into the meanings that mediation carries which pushes beyond common polarisations: mediation has to be conceived in terms of more than either powerful images or playfulness/resistance. As mediation interlaces with the imagined and the lived, ambivalences, dissonances and incommensurable affections toward the places at hand are generated.

    Transitional times: ‘New Media’ – Novel Histories and Trajectories2009Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The alluring traits of ‘new media’ have spurred new research interests. This article discusses the discourse of ‘new media’ from the vantage point of critically reviewing three emissions from MIT Press during the years 1999-2003 within the series Media in Transition, as to the fundamental concepts used and introduced in these works. It cautions against any reductionist perspective on new media forms, and while highlighting the many merits of writing new media histories, the article shows that this discussion, also nascent within an interdisciplinary Swedish research environment, also carries other important features with implications for the relationships between communication and (time)space. It concludes that it is not enough to acknowledge that ‘new media’ call for a deep awareness of the historicity of the technological imaginary; deeper understandings of transitions in media also call for thoroughly expounding the socio-spatial ramifications of communication.
