    The Lost Swedish Tribe: Reapproaching the history of Gammalsvenskby in Ukraine2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the spring of 1782 a group of peasants of Swedish origin reached their destination on the right bank of Dnipro River in Ukraine. The village they founded became known as “Gammalsvenskby” (Russian “Staroshvedskoe,” English “Old Swedish Village”). In the 1880s links were established with Sweden and Swedophone Finland where the villagers were seen through a nationalistic-romantic prism and in broad circles became known as a brave group of people who had preserved their Swedish culture in hostile surroundings; in the terminology of this volume, a “lost Swedish tribe”. The village remained largely intact until 1929, when in the aftermath of the Russian revolution a majority of the villagers decided to leave for Sweden. When they arrived, there was disappointment. Neither Sweden nor the lost tribe lived up to expectations. Some of the villagers returned to Ukraine and the USSR.

    This book offers an alternative perspective on Gammalsvenskby. The changing fortunes of the villagers are largely seen in the light of two grand top-down modernization projects – Russia’s imperial, originating in the latter half of the eighteenth century, and the Soviet, carried out in the early 1920s – but also of the modernization projects in Sweden and Finland. The story the book has to tell of Gammalsvenskby is a new one, and moreover, it is a story of relevance also for the history of Russia, Ukraine, Sweden and Finland.

    Är samhället på väg att gå under?: En studie av svenska tidningars agerande under finanskriser2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Huvudsyftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka tre stora svenska tidningars bevakning av de ekonomiskt viktiga händelser som inträffade hösten 2008 och våren 2009 i jämförelse med mediebevakningen av det sena 1980-talets och tidiga 1990-talets bankkris, samt ur ett konstruktivistiskt perspektiv. Studiens resultat ställs i förhållande till Hadenius och Söderhjelms slutsatser från deras undersökning av bankkrisen under det tidiga 1990-talet.      Uppsatsen ska ge en bild av hur de svenska dagstidningarna Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens Nyheter och Dagens Industri valde att framställa och kommentera krisen för den svenska fordonsindustrin, Carnegie-affären och Swedbanks förtroendekris. En övergripande fråga som ställs till materialet är hur dessa händelser har bevakats och gestaltats av ledande kommentatorer och krönikörer i de utvalda tidningarna. Materialet analyseras i perspektiv av den konstruktivistiska teoribildningen utifrån vilken det förutsätts att det journalistiska arbetet påverkar den verklighet som ska beskrivas. I viss mån ställs detta synsätt även mot dess motpart – förmedlingsteorin. Enligt det senare synsättet är tillblivelsen av en nyhet en objektiv och neutral process där journalistens roll begränsas till förmedlare av informationen.      Undersökningen antyder att det har skett en förändring i hur svenska tidningar bevakar och beskriver finanskriser. Hadenius och Söderhjelm beskriver ett medieklimat i vilket journalisterna begränsas till att fungera som mikrofonhållare åt bankaktörerna som genom sina uttalanden och ett tydligt informationsövertag över journalisterna styrde rapporteringen. Kritiskt granskande journalister var få till antalet.

    SS-Vision und Grenzland-Realität: Vom Umgang dänischer und „volksdeutscher” Nationalsozialisten in Sønderjylland mit der „großgermanischen“ Ideologie der SS2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation examines the implementation of the SS’s Greater Germanic idea in the Danish border region of South Jutland. Its focus is on how Danish and ethnic German (volksdeutsche) national socialists, organised in their respective Nazi parties, dealt with the SS’s crusade on behalf of a supranational racial vision. The study traces why the two groups reacted so negatively to the SS’s ideology - despite the SS’s power, despite the Greater Germanic promise of high racial prestige, and despite shared service in “Germanic” units of the Waffen-SS.

    The SS’s attempts to use a race-based ideology to overcome the disputes that divided South Jutland’s two Nazi parties ran aground on fundamentally nationalist identities. For most members of the German minority, the Greater Germanic ideology was a threat. The German minority hoped for border revision; to acknowledge Danes as racial equals would endanger their political goals. Nor were Danish Nazis more enthusiastic. To be sure, the SS’s vision did provide an ideological weapon in the fight against demands for border vision. But the potential imperialism of the Greater Germanic idea worried those who prized continued Danish sovereignty. After all, the first hope of the Danish Nazis was to rule an independent national-socialist Danish state.

    The study makes it clear, however, that the fate of the Greater Germanic idea cannot be understood simply in terms of Realpolitik. Rather, the conflicts between the SS and its collaboration partners must also be understood as a clash between racial and völkisch concepts of community. The SS's vision of a Greater Germanic Reich based on ideologies of race clashed with the German-minority and Danish national-socialist commitment to Volk-based nationalism. Despite their strong commitment to Nazi ideologies, both collaboration partners found the SS’s racial community “unimaginable”.

    Waffen-SS veterans and their sites of memory today2016In: The Waffen-SS: A European History / [ed] Jochen Böhler & Robert Gerwarth, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2016, 1Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Book abstract: This is the first systematic pan-European study of the hundreds of thousands of non-Germans who fought ― either voluntarily or under different kinds of pressures ― for the Waffen-SS (or auxiliary police formations operating in the occupied East). Building on the findings of regional studies by other scholars ― many of them included in this volume ― The Waffen-SS aims to arrive at a fuller picture of those non-German citizens (from Eastern as well as Western Europe) who served under the SS flag. Where did the non-Germans in the SS come from (socially, geographically, and culturally)? What motivated them? What do we know about the practicalities of international collaboration in war and genocide, in terms of everyday life, language, and ideological training? Did a common transnational identity emerge as a result of shared ideological convictions or experiences of extreme violence? In order to address these questions (and others), The Waffen-SS adopts an approach that does justice to the complexity of the subject, adding a more nuanced, empirically sound understanding of collaboration in Europe during World War II, while also seeking to push the methodological boundaries of the historiographical genre of perpetrator studies by adopting a transnational approach.

    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.

    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.

    Snusförnuft. J A Boman & Co och dess anpassningsförmåga: En företagshistoria om en tobaksfirma i Göteborg år 1847-19152014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is a business history about the Swedish midsized tobacco company J A Boman & Co, previously Ferd Körner and Körner & Boman, which was part of the blooming tobacco industry in Sweden during the 19th century.  One purpose of the essay is to fill a gap within both business history in general and the study of tobacco companies in particular, since they both tend to favor studies on larger companies. The other purpose is to find a methodological way to study a smaller sized, older company with very few sources from the actual company. The essay seeks to answer questions about the company’s production history and how it changed over the years. The study takes use of both qualitative and quantitative methods to examine the company and how it developed over time. It is not an essay deeply embedded in theory, it rather seeks to use different theoretical approaches. One approach is a micro level macro theory, that claims that a company only can be understood through the macro level and that the company, itself being the micro level, can deliver exciting new findings that creates a deeper understanding for the macro level.

    Throughout the essay, the company’s production statistics are examined, and combined with newspaper articles, letters and previous academic works within the field, the essay closes in on answers to the questions that were introduced in the beginning. The examination of the company finds that the midsized company managed to survive through adaptability to its time and circumstances. The company chose to sell their products through merchants instead of directly to the consumers, unlike most of the other tobacco companies at the time. The methodological problem, which was part of the essay’s purpose, was resolved by the combined method described earlier in the abstract, although the essay would admittedly have been better if there had been some papers left from the examined company.

    ”…among his Harmonic friends he was just a human”: The Harmonic Society in Stockholm 1820–1865, music and civil society

    For several decades, the Harmonic Society occupied a special place among the voluntary associations of early nineteenth-century Stockholm. During its heydays in the 1820s and 1830s, its combined forces of about 120 choristers and 40 musicians – all but a few amateurs – were hailed as the backbone of musical life in the capital.

    Drawing on evidence primarily from contemporary newspapers and letters, the article argues that the Harmonic society in its early phase provides a good illustration of a voluntary association as a key factor in an emerging civil society. In line with previous research on voluntary associations, it shows that the purpose guiding the musical society was to provide a haven for music-lovers – irrespective of estate or conviction. In their joint projects – in this case large scale choral works – everyone could come together, freed from other attachments or daily obligations.

    The Harmonic Society was founded by ten men who constituted a cross-section of the 1820s middle class, with a background as tradesmen, civil servants and professionals. They soon adopted a double mission of ”dilettantism”

    and ”reform”. The core activity was the social commitment to singing and playing, for the sheer love of music, in private or with invited guests. However, in the early 1820s the society also started a singing school for children, and (from 1824) gave occasional public concerts, sometimes for charity. Love of music should be for the benefit of society.

    In 1831, with the election of nobleman Bernhard von Beskow as chairman, the Harmonic society embarked on a different path. The aim was now to attract the attention of the royal court and nobility, thus elevating the Harmonic Society from its middle-class origins. This ambition proved successful in the sense that newspapers in the 1830s regularly reported on the activities of the society, dutifully stressing the attendance of royalties and high society. But these ambitions caused severe tensions within the society, with older members lamenting the loss of their unassuming comradeship and humbler gatherings.

    From the 1840s, the society met with new challenges. The public music scene was expanding and becoming more professionalized and commercialized.

    New genres, not least the male choir, often formed by workers’ associations, posed a new kind of competition. From c. 1850, most of its activities seems to have waned, after several failed attempts at revival. The cultural public sphere had moved on, leaving the bourgeois amateurs’

    Abstract [en]

    In the second half of the 18th century, the Stockholm retail trades started to organise themselves in legal corporations, called trade societies. In this, they were frequently opposed by the State. Swedish society was still basically a corporatist society, based on privileged bodies, with defined functions and rights. Corporations on a concrete level, claiming legal status as intermediaries between the Individual and the public did, however, not fit into the plans of the State anymore. This dissertation deals with the following problems concerning this late addition to the corporate world of early-modern Sweden: What were the driving forces behind this corporate formation? And what were its consequences, for the relations between corporation and individual on the one hand, and between the corporations and the public on the other?

    The theoretical framework includes a discussion concerning conflicting conceptions of property. I will argue that the corporate ideals presuppose an 'embedded' notion of property, whereas 'new' ideas of property as a purely material commodity were starting to make their way into 18th century Swedish society. The second theoretical assumption is, that the action of the trade societies may be seen from a petite bourgeoisie perspective, where both the preconditions for their business and social status, as well as their collective action, show great affinity with that of advocates of petty property and small-scale business in the late 19th and early 20th century.

    I will argue that the combined phenomena of perceived relative deprivation and subsequent real economic hardship proved conducive to the decision of the retail trades to start forming proper corporations, meaning legally recognised (and protected) occupational associations. This process included a shift of strategy, as the trade societies turned inward: A closer adherence to the question of a moral economy, and claims to mutuality and surveillance within the society, were combined with strengthened claims concerning the question of credentials and professional skill.

    In their relations to individuals, the trade societies were obvious exponents of the patriarchal society. Young men within the retail trades, although closely supervised, faced reasonably fair chances of one day becoming tradesmen, burgesses and members of the corporation. Where conformity was lacking, however, both corporations and individuals were prone to litigation. The strengthened legal position of the trade societies proved to be conducive also to strengthened position vis-à-vis individuals. During the latter part of the century, the municipal courts showed greater adherence to the arguments and statutes of the corporations.

    The patriarchal system did also contain the relations between men and women. Here is introduced the concept of the corporate gender-order, for describing the trade societies' relations to women within and in the periphery of the corporation. Independent women, working outside any patriarchal control, was seen as a serious threat to the identity of these trades as exclusive, and as 'professions'. As a conclusion the retailers show a certain affinity with the petite bourgeoisie, in their individual as well as their collective behaviour.

    Feminism och jämställdhet i en nyliberal kontext 1990-20102011In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, no 2-3, p. 97-115Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the relationship between gender equality politics and the advancement of neo-liberalism in Sweden from the 1980s–90s. As theoretical starting point serves a discussion by Nancy Fraser, concerning the relationship between feminism and neo-liberalism, and her fears that capitalism has co-opted the feminist agenda, in fact putting feminism in the service of market-liberalism. From many perspectives, it is evident that Swedish society, like so many in the Western world, has been subjected to the forces of market logic, imbuing the politics from conservatism to social-democracy alike. To what extent has this development affected feminism on the one hand, and gender equality politics on the other? Do we detect a new kind of liberal feminism? A neo-liberal feminism? The article makes use of empirical evidence concerning the current politics on behalf of the Liberal-Conservative Swedish Government to promote female entrepreneurship. Three political areas with relevance for both gender equality and the issue of female entrepreneurship are investigated: the future of the public welfare sector, the issue of tax-deduction for household services, and, finally, gender quotas and women on company boards. While promoting a politics where the market is increasingly substituted for the public welfare-sector, and offered as a solution in most political areas, the Liberal-Conservatives of today have nevertheless embraced a feminist rhetoric. Acknowledging the forces of ‘the gender powerorder’ and structural inequality is now a standard feature within liberal gender equality politics. This political merger between feminism and neo-liberal politics may be interpreted as just paying lip-service; as a way of reconciling a long tradition of consensus surrounding gender equality with the overall neo-liberal aim of transforming the entire society along market principles. But, we may also see a neo-liberal feminism in its own right, intent on expanding the field of gender equality to enterprise, ownership and economic power.
