Abstract [sv]

Det handlar om en ung högskola, internationell och öppen för alla som söker kunskap, idéer och vägar vidare.

Här presenteras de värden Södertörns högskola står för, de tre M:en mångvetenskap, medborgerlig bildning och mångkultur, som genomsyrar högskolans ambitioner och arbetssätt. Vi får följa hur en ung högskola byggs upp utifrån lokala behov och med blicken riktad mot Östersjöländerna och Östeuropa. Idag är Södertörns högskola en plats mitt i sin samtid, där människor växer och idéer gror.

Södertörns högskola öppnar världar är en berättelse med många olika röster. Här berättar studenter, lärare, forskare, administratörer, samverkansparter och politiker om de dörrar som kan öppnas genom utbildning, kunskap och samtal, och om forskning som förändrar och bryter ny mark. Med akademins kritiska tänkande kan Södertörns högskola bidra till att möta samhällets utmaningar inför framtiden. Och resan fortsätter. Följ med!

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: At the end of the 19th century, infant mortality was high in urban and rural areas in Sweden. In Stockholm, the mortality rate was particularly high among foster children. This study addresses the importance for health of targeted public policies and their local implementation in the reduction of excess mortality among foster children in Stockholm at the turn of the 19th century. In response to public concern, a law was passed in 1902 on inspections of foster homes. Stockholm city employed a handful of inspectors who visited foster homes and advised parents on child care and feeding. METHODS: Analysis of historical records from the City of Stockholm was combined with epidemiological analysis of mortality rates and hazard ratios on individual-level data for 112 746 children aged <1 year residing in one part of Stockholm between 1878 and 1925. Hazard ratios of mortality were calculated using Cox' regression analysis. RESULTS: Mortality rates of foster infants exceeded 300/1000 before 1903. Ten years later the mortality rates among foster children had declined and were similar to other children born in and out of wedlock. Historical accounts and epidemiological analysis of individual-level data over a longer time period showed similar results. CONCLUSIONS: Targeted policy measures to foster children may have potentiated the positive health effects of other universal policies, such as improved living conditions, clean water and sanitation for the whole population in the city, contributing to an equalization of mortality rates between different groups.

Abstract [en]

The visible and the non-visible. An inventory of clothes belonging to deceased patients of the Stockholm maternity hospital 1860-1870.

 

In mid19th century Stockholm pregnant women who lacked a home of their own usually gave birth at state-owned “Allmänna barnbördshuset”, free of cost. As with most maternity hospitals in Europe in the 1860s this public lying-in hospital had a towering mortality rate, mainly caused by outbreaks of puerperal fever.

When patients died, their belongings were returned to their relatives. If not claimed within three months, the rest was sent off to the state orphanage to be distributed among the wet-nurses and girls of that establishment. An inventory used for this distribution, compiled between 1860 and 1870, provides unique information about the dress of working-class city women in the wake of the industrial society.

The inventory shows that the publicly visible dress usually consisted of a skirt, with a jacket, combined with shawls and scarves depending on the season. Dresses were rare compared to skirts. The low number of hats indicates that working-class city women normally still stuck to the headscarf. Among a small number of fashion items appears the bonnet, the “beduin” (a knitted hood with frills) and the “Garibaldi-blouse” (a long shirt with wide sleeves, named after the Italian revolutionary.)     

                      Under the outer skirt women wore one or two more skirts or petticoats. In wintertime, the inner petticoat was occasionally a stubb, a quilted or knitted, tight miniskirt worn for warmth. This item appears more frequently in the inventory at the beginning of the period that at the end, indicating a gradual disappearance of the stubb. The initially small number of drawers listed increases however, suggesting that drawers were gradually replacing the stubb. Nevertheless, women did not normally wear underpants even by the end of the period.

Joan L Severa comments in her book Dressed for the photographer: Ordinary Americans and fashion 1840-1900 the appearance of knickers in women’s dress in the 1860s in the following way: “Pantalettes seem to have been adopted by mature women by the late fifties, perhaps because of the undependability of large hoops [of the crinoline, LÖ] in certain circumstances. … Information on the wearing of this garment is scarce, however, since pantalettes were never a part of fashion discussion as they contributed nothing to the silhouette, though they are included in descriptions of sets of under-clothing” (Severa 1995 p 201). Similar findings are reported by researchers studying British women’s fashion of the same period.

To conclude, the inventory offers evidence about the existence and the type of women’s publicly visible as well as publicly invisible clothing from 1860 to 1870, including underwear, worn in an urban, working-class context. Regarding the non-visible, a majority of the deceased women did not wear underpants, although a growing number began to do so during the period. At the same time the use of the traditional short and warm under-skirt, “stubb”, dwindled. These facts indicate a change of habits concerning below waistline underwear, taking place in Stockholm at the same time as in the United States and in Great Britain, or perhaps slightly later. At the time when visible trousers, so called Bloomers, were highly controversial and were being worn only by a limited number of avant-garde females outside Sweden, working-class women silently started to adopt the habit of wearing trousers, in the shape of drawers, under their skirts.
