    On parade: making heritage in Lindsborg, Kansas2003Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with the Swedish cultural heritage in the United States and aims to examine how and why in­dividuals living in the U.S. select and affirm certain concepts and phenomena as particularly Swedish. The focus is on Lindsborg, Kansas, a town of some 3,000 inhabitants who identify themselves as Swedish Americans, Swedes, and non-Swedes, and on how they organize, prepare and enact parades in which they display notions of Swedishness to audiences of 10,000 visitors or more. These parades are enacted during the Svensk Hyllningsfest, an event which townspeople have arranged biennially since 1941 in honor of the Swedish settlers of Lindsborg and their descendants. The study is based on four periods of fieldwork, of which one (1997-1998) follows the planning, or­ga­nization and the final enactment of the Hyllningsfest. The ethnographic fieldwork is discussed, especially ethical issues and the processes of converting Weld experiences into written texts. In addition, the study is based on newspaper reports and festival publicity material, some of which dates back to the 1910s. Thus the contemporary focus is given historical depth. Based on theories of events, performances, heritage making, and public memory, and touching upon the development of the heritage industry and small town economics, the study draws on the premise that repeated performances allow participants to negotiate, motivate and articulate issues that are important to them. In particular, the analyses highlight the relationship between heritage, commercialization and dedication, between heritage as ceremony and heritage as humor, and between heritage as choice and heritage as lineage. Today, Lindsborg prides itself on its voluntary heritage making, a perception that is part of the town leadership's strategy. The analyses show how organizers and other inhabitants communicate different visions of the town heritage through the Svensk Hyllningsfest Parade. While the organizers praise recognized stock images of "Swedishness," participants are more likely to express individual visions of things Swedish. By enacting parades that occur before the official event parade, some groups challenge the official parade, thereby adding complexity to the simplified image of Swedishness that the official organizers advocate. The con­test between organizers and participants is a battle over the concept of heritage, and over the appropriate­ness of the professional heritage industry, including tourism and commercial event makers. Through the parade, Lindsborgians express deep values and existential issues at the same time as they focus on ideals linked to ethnic hierarchy and class, contesting simplified notions of heritage. The study illustrates how Sweden and Swedish America have developed in separate cultural directions. But it also demonstrates that the two are now moving closer together through collaboration in heritage tourism. While Lindsborg looks toward Sweden to renew its expressions of Swedishness, community leaders in Sweden show interest in Lindsborg's competence in managing cultural performance. This collaboration involves selected rural communities in Sweden with which Lindsborgians share values, friendships and commitments.

    Tracking Swedish-American English: A Longitudinal Study of Linguistic Variation and Identity2003Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The large-scale Swedish immigration to the American Midwest beginning in the mid-1800s is the sociolinguistic backdrop for this book. The focus of the study is the variety of English spoken by elderly Swedish immigrants and elderly Swedish Americans. In addition to tracing different patterns of Swedish settlement in rural and urban areas to establish how social history affects different types of language contact, the investigation examines how the majority language-English-was influenced by Swedish over many decades. Data were transcribed from seventy-two speakers recorded in oral history interviews from 1959 to 1998. The main material consists of interviews with elderly persons who have lived in Swedish-American communities for all of their adult years. Data from these speakers are compared to the speech of persons who have experienced relatively little language contact: Swedes who remained in their home region in Dalarna, and monolingual speakers of American English from a small community in Kansas. Special attention in the linguistic analysis is devoted to features of syntax and pragmatics. Relative clause structures are investigated to examine how language contact has influenced speakers' strategies in syntactic subordination. Another special focus in the book is pragmatic particles, such words and phrases as you know, well, so, and ja. Analysis of the interviews reveals that elderly male Swedish immigrants as a group use these items more frequently than other speakers. Explanations for this linguistic phenomenon take into account the speakers' syntactic remodelling of English as well as their use of Swedish-influenced English to highlight their social identity. A longitudinal study of two individuals, who have been interviewed several times over a thirty-year interval, examines the socio-symbolic aspects of Swedish-American English. Bilingual individuals have the option of using different parts of their linguistic repertoire, depending on which aspect of their identity they wish to highlight for their listeners. The study thus examines hybridized Swedish and English linguistic features in conversational interaction. Finally, it examines Swedish-American English in jokes and literature.

    Ingermanländares namnskick under 1900-talet: Kontinuitet och förändring2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An increasing number of personal names of non-Swedish origin exist in Sweden. This study deals with the names among Finnish speaking lutheran and orthodox Ingrian refugees from the former Soviet Union. The investigation is based upon written questionnaires, archives and interviews with persons born 1920-52. To the quantitative investigation a qualitative study has been added focusing names in relation to personal identity. Particular emphasis has been placed upon charting the Ingrians’ and Ingrian Finns’ surnames at the time of arriving in Sweden. An attempt is also made to explain different types of difficulties that Swedish-speaking people meet in connection with the immigrants’ foreign names. The question of preserving the original surnames versus changing into new Swedish names is investigated. The purpose of this investigation also has been to make a longitudinal study of what influence the majority languages and politics in three countries – Russia, Finland and Sweden – may have had upon the naming of Ingrian children born. The present study indicates that the traditional naming of children underwent changes during the late 1930s into more new Finnish names and also names from the Russian tradition. In the middle of 1940s the spelling of a number of forenames were changed by the Finnish authorities into a Finnish normalized mode. The orthodox Ingrians’ Russian family names were in many cases exchanged into Finnish ones. When registered in Sweden the forenames sometimes got a mixture of Finnish as well as Swedish orthography by the Swedish registrators. No surnames were changed until several years of stay in the immigrants’ new country, mostly in the 1960s. Changing names was voluntarily done which was caused by a number of different reasons. The surnames are investigated and cathegorized according to a trial of perception among Swedes made by the author. The results are applied upon the names of the investigation and one becomes aware of some of the reasons for preservation or change of surnames. According to the interviews it seems that there is no direct link between choice of name, name-giving and changes of name, on the one hand, and self-identification, on the other. When naming children born in Sweden, parents appear to have been guided by a desire to choose an integrated name, rather than to preserve the distinctive character of traditional names.

    The study shows how people’s naming customs and their changes have mirrored the geopolitical history of this ethnic group.

    Europe–Evropa?: cross-cultural dialogues between the West, Russia, and Southeastern Europe : contributions to the conference "Eastern manifestations of Western ideas - or vice versa? The cases of Russia and southeastern Europe," held at the University of Helsinki 20th-22nd August 20082010Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume contains twenty papers presented at the conference “Eastern Manifestations of Western Ideas—or Vice Versa?,” held at the University of Helsinki in August 2008. The contributions deal with a wide range of questions related to the status of languages, literary and cultural topics, philosophical ideas, the Byzantine heritage, political history, and travelogues in (South)eastern Europe and Russia. The book represents the most recent state of affairs in the study of the target area in the mentioned fields. The authors are both senior experts and younger scholars from the United States of America, Croatia, Finland, Luxembourg, Serbia, and Sweden. Each essay in the volume attests to the benefits of crossing the geographical, cultural and ideological divisions that have run for centuries and are still running through Europe in various forms. The book is not only a scholarly endeavour, but can also be used as an academic textbook in area studies.
