    The bitter-sweet taste of despair: death and youth culture in charismatic Shi’ism2015In: Life here and hereafter: beliefs and pracitices : Vilnius, Lithuania, 23-24 October, 2015, Vilnuis University : abstracts, 2015, p. 8-Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on fieldwork in Qom, this paper explores the ritual and theological meanings of death among members of a Shi’ite revivalist movement in contemporary Iran. The heyyati movement represents a charismatic development in the religious landscape of the Islamic Republic. The movement expanded on massively during the last decade and played a pivotal role in the mobilisation of popular support for former president Ahmadinejad. The movement circles around an independent type of preachers known as zaker or madha. Although the heyyati movement represents a form of Iranian folk religiosity that in connection to certain holidays entertains broad popular support, it has also developed into a particular subculture with its own lifestyle, ritual repertoire and ideological profile. Lately this development has created controversy as some preachers, more or less openly, have challenged the clerical establishment in the country. Stories about the martyrdom of historical Islamic heroes, ritual manifestations of one’s own readiness to die and meditations about death, constitute important features in the religious life of heyyati men. Despite these mournful expressions in their ritual life, however, present and former members of the movement predominantly speak of their engagement in terms of joy and friendship. In this paper the amalgamation of politics, joyful youth culture and death awareness is presented and analysed.

    The dissolution of the History of religions: contemporary challenges of a humanities discipline in Sweden2015In: Temenos, ISSN 0497-1817, E-ISSN 2342-7256, Vol. 51, no 2, p. 161-175Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The discipline of History of religions has changed in Sweden over the latest decades. Its traditional connection to text and language has weakened and its emphasis shifted towards social and contemporary aspects of religion. In this article the societal trends and the reforms in Swedish university politics that lie behind this change are pinpointed and discussed. It is argued that the transformation has been twofold. On the one hand the discipline has grown considerably and expanded into empirical fields, methods, and theories that were alien to it only twenty-five years ago. On the other it has been forced to adjust to a political climate focused on direct social relevance, measurability, and quantifiable efficiency. The article presents the transformation as consisting in four parallel processes labelled the efficiency turn, the altered knowledge contract, the replacement by religionsvetenskap, and the loss of prestige, respectively.

    The Heyyati-movement and charismatic Shi’ism in contemporary Iran2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The heyyati-movement is a folk-religious movement in Iran circling around the practice of chest beating and ritual mourning of the martyred household of the Prophet. During the last decade, since the presidential period of Mohammad Khatami, the structure of this movement has changed. The heyyati-groups were mobilised in the campaign that led to the victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the presidential elections of 2005 and since then what may be described as a new type of heyyati-culture has flourished in certain layers of Iranian society and it has frequently been a matter of controversy. Today, the movement can be described as a charismatic alternative to the religious authority of the clerical establishment. Based on interviews and ethnographic observations this paper describes and analyses one heyyati-community in Qom.

    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.
