    Från massmedium till mikrosurrogat. Några reflektioner kring den mikrofilmade dagstidningen som källa2011In: Scandia, ISSN 0036-5483, no 2, p. 155-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the end of the 1970s, those wishing to consult newspaper archives in research libraries are referred to copies on microfilm. Despite the fact that microfilm is in many respects a problematic source-medium, there has been no academic discussion of this fact in Sweden. A series of official government inquiries (in 1949, 1972, 1975, and 1976) acknowledged that the substitution of microfilmed copies for the originals could have a detrimental effect on research, yet the switch to microfilm went ahead nevertheless. The decision to microfilm contemporaneous newspapers and to retroactively microfilm older material was justified on financial and conservation grounds: microfilm was thought cheaper to handle than bulky originals, and newsprint would be destroyed if handled too much or would disintegrate because of the poor quality of the paper. In normal circumstances, reading a newspaper involves holding it, feeling the paper in one’s hand, turning the pages, viewing double-spreads that are never definitively in black and white, glancing through in a non-linear fashion, and then folding the paper and putting it down. Reading newspapers on microfilm involves pressing buttons, scrolling queasily down a stream of single pages, the black and white images blurring into one. The substitution of microfilm for newsprint hampers the semiotic analysis of the older daily press, and the striking difference between microfilm-reading and the type of newspaper-reading described in the major theories of the emergency of modern society, for example Benedict Anderson’s Imagined Communities, are two aspects that illustrate the deficiencies of microfilmed newspapers as a source. The digitalization of older newspapers from their microfilm copies serves merely to cement the disadvantages of the latter medium. Recently, however, microfilm producers have embarked on a constructive discussion that promises to address some of the problems.

    Heritage, Emotional Communities, and Imaginary Childhood Landscapes2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Employing examples from maritime heritage attractions in Sweden this paper aims to analyze how heritage stakeholders situate their enterprises through unreflective references to childhood. 

    A pioneer in the business of shipwreck tours started a heritage project by trying to convince investors and to create general interest in the planned tours by thoroughly referring to the thrilling documentary films about the Titanic by James Cameron. In contrast to the logistically complex and not-so-dramatic shipwreck tours that were eventually realized, the pioneer’s almost boyish appreciation of the adventurous qualities of Cameron’s documentary conveys feelings of childhood. Another stakeholder in the same project recalled a media event from his childhood when he talked about his early interest of old warships at the bottom of the sea. Thus he told me in an interview about how he absorbed the live television broadcast in the early 1960s of the rescue of the seventeenth-century warship Wasa in Stockholm. A third stakeholder, involved in another maritime heritage attraction, referred to his seemingly happy childhood as a contrast to contemporary selfishness and gentrification that, in his view, seem to threaten the surrounding landscapes of his heritage project located on a an island where he spent his childhood summers. 

    One of several hot-tempered arguments in David Lowenthal’s classic work The Heritage Crusade and the Spoils of History (1998) highlights the importance of childhood in the discourses of heritage. Since heritage merely seems to be a conspiratorial celebration of the past for Lowenthal, the childhood dimension is treated as a tool that the advocates of a specific heritage deliberately use to legitimize their version of bygone days. My research on heritage attractions confirms Lowenthal’s claim that childhood is a crucial element in heritage. Through analyses of texts and interviews pertaining to the maritime heritage attractions in Sweden, however, I contend that the use of more or less salient references to childhood could be understood as unreflective and habitual articulations. Nonetheless, even though the forms of heritage attractions may vary and the stakeholder’s so-called personality may differ, the imaginary landscapes of childhood appear to function as central prerequisites in the enterprises of heritage. However, to offer a deeper understanding of how the uses of childhood work within the logics of heritage, I propose that we move beyond Lowenthal’s critique. I propose that the references to childhood could be related to the concept of emotional communities, introduced by the historian Barbara Rosenwein (2006). The emotional community for her is a group in which people have a common stake, interests, values, and goals. These are reached through representations of emotion within in a system of norms and convention. The analysis focuses on the fabric of a social community and how emotions are discursively expressed; not unmediated feelings or emotions, which is the case in psychology. I believe that an analytical approach that makes use of the concept of emotional community with the focus on the different uses of the feeling of childhood is a way to deconstruct naturalizations, hierarchies, temporality, and spatiality within heritage.

    Swedish Visions of a ‘Smiling Finn’: Interpreting Hannes Kolehmainen in Sweden2012In: International Journal of the History of Sport, ISSN 0952-3367, E-ISSN 1743-9035, Vol. 29, no 7, p. 1001-1015Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores discourses on nationalism and masculinity in Swedish media texts about Hannes Kolehmainen between 1909 and 1966. The collective Swedish memory of the Finnish long distance champion Hannes Kolehmainen consists of media stories from the first half of the twentieth century. Today there are probably very few Swedes who know about Kolehmainen. But during the Olympic games of 1912 and 1920 he was depicted as a true sports hero and given extensive space in the Swedish press. The Swedish press, however, provided glimpses of Kolehmainen already in 1909 and cultivated his heroic aura when he was mentioned in the stories of the opening ceremony of Helsinki Olympiad of 1952. The last colourful example of Swedish worship of Kolehmainen was an obituary published in 1966. The Swedish media texts on Kolehmainen certainly dealt with his outstanding athletic qualities. However, the stories also conveyed Swedish notions about Finnish-ness and, implicitly, ideas on proper Swedish manliness during the first half of the twentieth century.

    The Treacherous Grin Reflex: Commemorating the 1912 Olympics2014In: International Journal of the History of Sport, ISSN 0952-3367, E-ISSN 1743-9035, Vol. 31, no 5, p. 516-525Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The centenary of the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm included an array of diverse events. By the use of Maurice Halbwachs' concept of 'collective memory,' this essay takes a critical look at a few of the major events and official accounts pertaining to the commemorations of 2012. Methods used are ethnographic observations, at events, and qualitative analyses of texts, videos and photographs from the official records on events. A number of recurring and salient tropes used during the centenary resulted in an overall merry picture of the 1912 Olympics. Investigations on collective memory in Sweden usually tend to focus on party politics, especially the era of the hegemonic Swedish Social-Democrats. According to these studies the influence of sports seems negligible. In this study it is argued that the collective memory of major sports events, like the 1912 Olympics, in Sweden work as influential mental structures that can both confirm and challenge conventional Swedish meta-narratives.
