    The rise of the madahs: charismatic authority in the Islamic republic2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Euologists (madah) and the folk-religious movement that surround them are playing an increasingly important role in the religio-political landscape of the Islamic republic. Circling around the practice of chest beating and ritual mourning of the martyred household of the Prophet, the structure of this movement has changed during the last decade. In presidential period of Mohammad Khatami, the madahs were mobilised in the campaign that led to the victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the presidential elections of 2005. Since then what may be described as a new type of charismatic folk-religious culture has flourished in certain layers of Iranian society and has frequently been a matter of controversy. Today, the madahs can be described as charismatic alternatives to the religious authority of the clerical establishment. Based on interviews and ethnographic observations in Qom, this paper describes and analyses the role of the madahs in Iran today.

    The Relocation of Transcendence Using Schutz to Conceptualize the Nature Experiences of Secular People2019In: Nature and Culture, ISSN 1558-6073, E-ISSN 1558-5468, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 190-214Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Denmark, Estonia, and Sweden are, if measured by certain sociological criteria, considered to be three of the world's most secular countries. Nature-forests, pristine beaches, and the countryside-plays a specific role in the allegedly secular discourse of the mainstream populations of these nations. Not only is it almost without exception deemed as a positive asset worthy of protection, it is also thought of as holding certain existential qualities. Based on ethnographic fieldwork and interviews, this article suggests that Alfred Schutz's conceptualization of transcendence-further developed by Thomas Luckmann-can be used to describe the existential experiences in nature of contemporary secular people. The article results in a suggestion for an operational definition of transcendence.

    A lot is at stake: On the possibilities for religion related dialouge among students in an upper secondary school south of Stockholm2017In: / [ed] Daniel Lindmark, 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [zh]

    This presentation reports the experiences of religion-related dialog among 24 Swedish students and their teacher in religion education. All students had immigrant backgrounds from the Middle East and all of them had strong religious convictions. By using qualitative analysis to reveal their experiences with dialog in school, the concept of “safe space” is critically discussed. The students’ educational environment was not a “safe space” when it came to religion-related dialog, in part because historical and political conflicts in the Middle East have an impact on students’ willingness to open up. The case study provides an example of the effects of the wider political and societal context on the micro-structure of classroom-interaction.

    Conditions for identity development among religious immigrant youth2019In: IAPR 2019: Psychology of Religion and Spirituality: New Trends and Neglected Themes, Gdansk: University of Gdansk Press, 2019, p. 67-67Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This is an ongoing project which aims to shed light on the conditions for identity development. The paper adopts theoretical concepts of dialogical self-theory to conceptualize these conditions. Focusing on the social conditions for developing an (integrated) identity, it is asked how identities are positioned through the expectations of the social environments. This process is, according to dialogical self-theory, labelled as I-positioning. Vital for the identity development are individuals and groups with high impacts and status, called promotors. 

    The purpose of the project is to investigate the conditions for identity development among religious youth with immigrant background in Sweden. The following research question is asked: What conflicts must religious immigrants with immigrant background deal with in their society of mind? The analysis is based on 24 qualitative interviews with Swedish students, living in the Stockholm area. All students have immigrant background and strong religious identities. The analysis reveals several conflicts in their society of mind. For example, having a strong religious identity and an identity of being a Swede is experienced as a paradox.

    Det kommer inte på tal: En studie om religiös och kulturell mångfald i grundskolan2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den religiösa pluralismen har ökat markant i Sverige de senaste decennierna och mycket talar för att den kommer att fortsätta att öka. Skolan är en plats där barn och unga kommer samman oavsett religiös och kulturell tillhörighet.

    I Det kommer inte på tal intervjuas ett 50-tal grundskoleelever om deras upplevelser och erfarenheter av religiös mångfald i skolan med syftet att förstå vilka processer som påverkar deras uppfattningar. Vilka omständigheter har betydelse för deras upplevelser? Vilken roll spelar föräldrar, skola och vänner? Och har barnets ålder betydelse för hens erfarenheter av religiös och kulturell pluralism? För att få en fördjupad förståelse för elevernas berättelse intervjuas också några lärare och rektorer.

    Boken riktar sig till blivande lärare, skolpersonal i tjänst och andra som är intresserade av religiös och kulturell pluralism i skolan.

    Aspergers, andar och böner till Gud: En fallstudie om Aspergers syndrom, religion och andlighet2013 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This case study examined what impact the neurological disorder Asperger’s syndrome has on the line of reasoning about religion and spirituality. Also, the question of whether the four informants showed any tendency to use the cognitive tools called theory of mind (ToM), existential theory of mind (EToM) and hypersensitive agency detection device (HADD) or not was put forth. From the interviews five themes were extracted: a stereoscopical view upon the world, thoughts on physical causality, prayer used as one-way communication, spiritual agency and intentionality, as well as existential and social questions. These themes were subsequently matched with theories on ToM, EToM and HADD. The result of the case study showed that the informants’ line of reasoning only corresponded to two out of six possible and expected approaches to religion and spirituality. For example, the informants rejected literal readings of religious narratives and there were no signs of rigidity or specific interest in religious rituals. However, their arguments were often based on physical causality and they were creative in discerning logical connections between physical and spiritual concepts. Regarding the use of cognitive tools, the informants showed signs of using ToM, but only in relation to spirits, guardian angels and aliens. There was no perceived two-way interaction, and the informants seemed to separate between an impersonal, deistic image of God and other metaphysical and personal agents. Also, the informants appeared to use their HADD in reasoning on agency and intentionality, at least parts of it, while there were no signs of EToM in terms of meaning making arguments. In conclusion, it seems as if curiosity is a key element in the results, both in the informants’ line of reasoning about religion and spirituality and possibly in terms of activating some of the cognitive tools examined in this essay.

    Dis:order. Cognition explored through a different lens2018In: Evolution, Cognition, and the History of Religion: a New Synthesis / [ed] Anders Klostergaard Petersen, Ingvild Sælid Gilhus, Luther H. Martin, Jeppe Sinding Jensen, Jesper Sørensen, Brill Academic Publishers, 2018, p. 397-412Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses at challenges that may arise when studying cognition in atypical populations. The central argument is that scholars need to apply new approaches to terminology and methodology, since traditional tools may lead us towards invalid results. This is illustrated through a critical discussion on the proposition that mentalizing difficulties in autistic individuals would be directly linked to atheism, and it is argued that such claims fail when involving embodied and encultured perspectives on cognition.

    Varieties of Supernatural Experience: the Case of High-Functioning Autism2019Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    It is argued in the cognitive science of religion (CSR) that the empathic ability to ‘mindread’ others underpins  the experience of supernatural communication with gods, ghosts, and spirits. As autism is characterized by mentalizing difficulties, CSR scholars have expected autistic individuals would find supernatural agency incomprehensible. This thesis however turns the question around: why do autistic individuals engage intimately in supernatural relations, despite the social difficulties they face in everyday life?

    The thesis aims to provide new insights on autistic and religious cognition through examination of supernatural descriptions provided by 17 young, high-functioning autistic adults (16–21 years of age) who label themselves as ‘religious’ or ‘spiritual’. The research questions explore: (1) cognitive aspects of experienced interaction with invisible agents, compared with human interaction, (2) the prevalence of unusual embodied experiences (e.g. feeling touch and seeing visions without external input) and its role in attributions of supernatural agency, and (3) the psychological function of parasocial (fiction-based) interaction in imaginary realms.

    This interdisciplinary project draws on work undertaken in the cognitive science of religion, cognitive and critical autism research, and psychological anthropology. Mixed qualitative and quantitative methods are employed to enable a kaleidoscopic outlook on the topics explored, and to promote a dialogue between idiographically and nomothetically oriented scholars. The study provides first-person perspectives on religious and autistic cognition, which is understood as dynamic interaction between embrained, embodied, encultured and situated input.

    It is argued in Publication I that  ‘bodiless’ interaction facilitates mentalizing, also in relation to invisible agents, as no cross-modal synchronization of mimicry, body language and intonation is required. Publication II examines the prevalence of unusual, embodied experiences in autism, and it is proposed that supernatural attributions offer enchantment and sense-making of potentially frightening experiences. Results from Publication III suggest that  imaginary worlds and parasocial relations function as ‘simulators’ that autistic individuals use to rehearse social interaction. Publication IV offers a theoretical and methodological discussion regarding the study of atypical cognition. Importantly, this thesis illustrates that these imaginative autistic participants are not drawn to  supernatural frame- works in spite of, but because of the supernatural and parasocial characters these provide.
