    Mobbning, interaktion och meningsproduktion: Lokala kulturer, individuella trakasserier och kategoriell uteslutning2007In: Social interaktion: Förutsättningar och former, LIber; Malmö , 2007, p. 164-188Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Mobbning som företeelse har en obestämd men med all sannolikhet mycket lång historia. Som begrepp har det däremot en betydligt kortare livstid, och under sitt livslopp har det genomgått viktiga betydelseskridningar. Det vi idag menar med mobbning är inte detsamma som avsågs med begreppet när det först blev en offentlig angelägenhet i slutet av 1960-talet. Den första delen av denna uppsats skildrar den meningsproduktion som, via interaktioner mellan vardagsspråk och vetenskap, har format och omformat mobbningsbegreppet. Historiken är ett preludium till ett teoretiskt bidrag, vars syfte är att ge en ny ingång till studiet av mobbning som företeelse. Mobbningsdiskursens historia har, direkt och indirekt, präglat forskningen på området – forskningens huvudfåra är kvantitativ och individualpsykologisk, med fokus på stabila personlighetskarakteristika hos offer och förövare. Men vid sidan av allfartsvägen har det också vuxit fram alternativ. Ett sådant är Björn Erikssons analyser av mobbning. Det teoretiska resonemang som utmejslas i denna uppsats tar sin utgångspunkt i de mekanismer som Eriksson identifierar. Interaktion och meningsproduktion återkommer här som huvudrollsinnehavare, men nu i en helt annan mening än den som avsågs i beskrivningen av mobbningsdiskursens historia. Nu gäller analysen social interaktion och meningsproduktion inom ramen för begynnande och fullt utvecklade mobbningsrelationer – två faktorer som fått underordnad betydelse i den dominerande forskningstraditionen på området. Arbetet med att vidareutveckla Erikssons teori tar som sin stödjepunkt en sekundäranalys av två hittills orelaterade forskningslitteraturer, barnetnografier och kvantitativa studier av öknamn. Resultatet är ett teoretiskt ramverk som bland annat förmår göra reda för relationen mellan individualiserande mobbning och kategoriellt bundna trakasseriformer som rasism och homofobi.

    Morgonrodnad: Socialismens stil och mytologi 1871-19142016Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Socialismen är den ideologiska rörelse som troligen haft snabbast spridning över världen någonsin. Sedan 1800-talets mitt har den satt avtryck inte bara på politikens och det sociala livets domäner, utan även på konst, litteratur, religion och livsåskådning. Många har beskrivit socialismens rationella sidor, men ingen rörelse blir mäktig utan att sätta hjärtan i brand. I Morgonrodnad. Socialismens stil och mytologi 1871–1914 får vi återupptäcka en romantisk och mytisk sida hos socialismen där Jesus är en större hjälte än Marx och strävan efter ”det vackra” är ett argument för det klasslösa samhället. Religionshistorikern Stefan Arvidsson beskriver först socialisternas bruk av myter och historier i konst och propaganda, och fördjupar sig sedan i den kulturella stil som dominerade rörelsen runt förra sekelskiftet. Idealen spåras här till det mäktiga amerikanska ordenssällskapet The Holy and Noble Order of the Knights of Labor. Samtidigt försökte konstnärer i Europa skapa en helt ny socialistisk kultur som skulle förvandla livets alla sysslor till ”skön konst”.

    The Style and mythology of socialism: Socialist idealism, 1871-19142017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Arguably no modern ideology has diffused as fast as socialism. From the mid-nineteenth century to the last quarter of the twentieth, socialist ideals played a crucial part not only in the political sphere, but also influenced the way people worked and played, thought and felt, designed and decorated, hoped and yearned. By proposing general observations on the relationship between socialism, imagination, myth and utopia, as well as bringing the late nineteenth century socialist culture – a culture imbued with Biblical narratives, Christian symbols, classic mythology, rituals from freemasonry, Viking romanticism, and utopian speculations – together under the novel term ‘socialist idealism’, The Style and Mythology of Socialism: Socialist Idealism, 1871–1914 draws attention to the symbolic, artistic and rhetorical ways that socialism originally set the hearts of people on fire.

    Reasons of the Heart: Art and the shaping of modern politics2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the advent of what Germain Bazin famously described as the “museum age”, many have argued  that “art”, as a mode of creative production rooted in aesthetics, has become increasingly rarified, institutionalized and entangled in the politics and sociology of taste, making it a poor medium for critical appraisal of social or political issues. Drawing primarily on the history of the development of modern art, Terry Eagleton’s thesis on the advent of the aesthetic as a philosophical category advanced in The Ideology of the Aesthetic, and modern theories of mind which root rationality in the senses, I will argue that, notwithstanding the undisputed “entertainment” value of art, and its commercialization, the differentiation between aesthetic-­‐artistic knowledge and rational-­‐scientific knowledge might not be so simple to sustain, and that art thus serves a fundamental, if often unnoticed function in shaping social and political values in the contemporary world.

    Sanctus Stephanus episcopus et helsingorum martyr: La construction d'un saint septentrional2009In: Itinéraires du savoir de l'Italie à la Scandinavie: Études offertes à Élisabeth Mornet / [ed] Corinne Péneau, Paris: Publications de la Sorbonne , 2009, p. 71-84Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An 11th C. bishop and missionary to northern Sweden—including the territories of the Sami—named Stenphi and renamed Simeon, was reused under a third name, Staffan (Lat.: Stephanus), in a 15th C. chronicle. Here, he was casted as a martyr and a grave was identified. Paradoxically, Simeon's posthumous career as a martyr was given additional strength by the Reformation, when exiled Catholics fought to reclaim the history of Christianity in Sweden. The alleged martyr lived on in literature, tradition and folklore and still does so.

    Toward Post Systems Thinking in the Conception of Whole-Part Relations2014In: Proceedings of the 19th Annual Working Conference of the International Institute for Developmental Ethics, Maarssen, the Netherlands: Rozenberg Publishers, 2014, p. -111Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Systems thinking represent a diverse intellectual body that aims to support conception of phenomena. Systems thinking may be regarded as a reaction against the micro-reductionism inherent within the modernist scientific approach; more specifically in the latter’s conception ofwhole-part relations. While the propositions offered by systems thinking overcome that reductionism, we show that due to its biotic root-metaphor it instead imposes macro-reductionism. We proceed then by drawing on two alternative approaches that facilitate our conceptions of relations between a whole and its parts, in terms of encaptic relations and assemblage relations. A key conclusion advanced is that any utilization of analytical thinking and systems thinking must be conducted carefully and self-critically, due to their inherent limitations. As a consequence, this suggests an initiative for intellectual development of a post systems thinking approach, with regard to the conception of whole-part relations.

    A text intended for advanced students, discussing the paradigm of sinology in the 19th and 20th centuries. The text follows the intellectual tradition of European China studies begun by scholars such as Abel Rémusat in the first half of the 19th century, and investigates the way that the paradigm was challenged by new lines of scholarly approach in the post-WW II period.

    Vampyrer: En kulturkritisk studie av den västerländska vampyrberättelsen från 1700-talet till 2000-talet2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Vampires haunt our culture. They live amongst us, they live with us, and very likely, they live for us. Considering the never fading popularity of vampires, it is obvious that these beings satisfy some kind of basic human need. Why are vampires so popular? What kinds of specific characteristics do vampires possess that lead to our never-ending fascination with them? These are questions that are answered in this dissertation, which deals with the vampire narrative’s most significant transformations during the period 1700-2000.

     This study reveals that the vampire is a monster that allows both identification and distance, which makes it into an appropriate character for people to use when they tell stories about themselves and the surrounding world. This is reflected in vampire narratives. The nature of vampires and the material of vampire narratives are not something that has undergone random changes in the course of history. These transformations have their origins in various societal and cultural processes. Through studying the historical and cultural contexts that have produced vampire narratives, one can understand why vampires have been portrayed in different ways at different times and places. Similarly, studying the vampire narrative can also be used to understand the history and culture in which the narrative was created. An examination of the vampire narrative’s history from a cultural criticism perspective reveals a distinct pattern. The vampire narrative has always attracted most attention in times of social and cultural unrest. In all of the varying contexts where vampire characters appear throughout a story, a power game is occurring – a game where the vampire’s character is strategically used to express political opinions and strengthen ideological beliefs. The constant appearance of vampires in such power games is a distinctive feature within the history of vampire narratives, and the societal turbulence leaves its impression on the vampire narrative. These impressions are analyzed and interpreted in this dissertation in order to reveal the power and the strategies of power within the discourse in which the narrative has been produced. In order to describe how the vampire character has functioned and continues to function in what the study calls conflicts of power relations, the term and phenomena power improvisation is used.

     In the description of the history of the vampire narrative, one can discern two important sub-processes. The first describes how the vampire character and narrative have been fashioned into what they are today. During the period of interest, the vampire is transformed from the un-dead of folklore to an attractive nobleman and further into to a Count Dracula, in order to simultaneously be portrayed as what this study terms a human vampire. The second sub-process explains why the vampire character and narrative have been fashioned into what they are today. It describes the political and ideological beliefs which exist in the society where the vampire form is created and which give birth to different kinds of vampires. If, in the past, the vampire was a monster that was used to portray that which humans are afraid of, today it is a monster with which humans identify. This, claims the author, is due to the fact that the age in which we live is to a great extent imbued with the logic of consumer culture. People in a consumer culture live lives filled with demands which influence their self-image. Feelings of inadequacy and isolation are typical. For people of today, the vampire is an ally that offers an alternative and meets those needs that are neglected in a consumer society.

    Scenarios of Knowledge at Universities in Change: Perspectives of the Humanities, the Educational and the Cultural Sciences2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume presents some contributions to the 6th conference of the international network “Tacit Dimensions of Pedagogy”: “Education is Relation not Output? Scenes of Knowledge and Knowledge Acquisition”. The symposium was motivated by the fact that some perspectives of Humanities, for example those from the Educational and the Cultural Sciences, are not always present in the current discourses on university. Considering the point of view of these scientific disciplines, the idea of university and scholarly life means, firstly, to freely develop the idea of university. Secondly, it means to critically examine the conditions for academic work, e.g. in terms of current policy discourses. Fundamental for this is the idea of university as a society in which everyone is responsible for the shaping of her/his relationships to him-/herself, to others and to the world based on diverse forms of knowledge and knowledge representation. In this volume, this idea will be developed from historical, conceptual, and practical perspectives.

    Utomhusmatematik som skärper elevers resonemangsförmåga2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka hur utomhusundervisning kan ge eleverna möjligheter att föra och följa resonemang i matematik. Studien har två frågeställningar, den ena är vilka typer av matematiska resonemang ges eleverna möjlighet att föra och följa vid utomhusmatematik? Den andra frågeställningen är hur tänker lärarna när det gäller möjligheter för eleverna att föra och följa matematiska resonemang? För att uppnå syftet och besvara frågeställningarna genomförs två observationer av utomhusundervisning samt intervju med lärarna som bedrev undervisningen.

     

    För att kategorisera vilka typer av resonemang eleverna använder utformas ett observationsschema som tar stöd av Lithners ramverk, som även är studiens teori. Detta ramverk förklarar att det finns två huvudtyper, imitativa och kreativa resonemang, där de dessutom finns olika undergrupper.

    Resultatet visar att eleverna får möjlighet att föra och följa båda kreativa (CMR) och imitativa resonemang (IR) i utomhusundervisning. På grund av uppgifternas utformning förekommer det mest IR i observationerna. Lärarna är medvetna om vad resonemangsförmågan innebär och denna insikt kan hjälpa eleverna att utveckla sin resonemangsförmåga. Utomhusmiljön blir dessutom ett gott inslag i matematikundervisning. Genom att arbeta ute får eleverna använda fler sinnen och arbeta mer kreativt. Detta kan i sin tur skapa motivation samtidigt som eleverna får gripa för att begripa.

    Are the Expressions 'Unclean Spirit' and 'Demon' Used as Technical Terms in the New Testament?2017In: Society of Biblical Literature, International Meeting / Society for Pentecostal Studies: Berlin, August 10, 2017, 2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    I begin by explaining the relevance of this question, noting how in Pentecostal and Charismatic writings (I focus especially on spiritual warfare literature) the words ‘unclean spirit’ and ‘demon’ are often treated as technical terms, with fixed well-defined meanings (incorporeal, malevolent supernatural agents that assail people in specific ways). Next I summarize some good reasons for treating them as technical terms. I note how other early texts treat ’demon’ as a discrete category. For example the Book of the Watchers traces all demons back to the antediluvian giants, suggesting that all demons are ultimately of the same kind, and the Testament of Solomon provides a catalogue of demons, also indicative of the fact that demons were considered a clearly defined category. There are also reasons to not consider ‘unclean spirit’ and ‘demon’ to be technical terms, however.  For example, New Testament authors do not share the interest in the nature of demons or their classification with later Christian and Jewish texts. NT texts do not explain on what basis demons and diseases were distinguished; on the contrary, references to demons and disease often co-occur in NT texts, suggesting that the expressions reflect perceived symptoms rather than being attempts at etiology. By way of conclusion I argue that we should be careful and not read too much into various references to demons and unclean spirits in the New Testament. Healings and exorcisms are performed in the New Testament either by Jesus or in his name and with his authority, rather than being based on the correct identification of demons.

    About IT unemployment: Investigating normative aspects of the “broken link"2014In: Proceedings of the 19th Annual Working Conference of the International Institute for Developmental Ethics (IIDE), Maarssen, the Netherlands: Rozenberg Publishers, 2014, p. -92Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The widespread use of information and communication technologies has given rise to some moral challenges that deserve particular attention. One such is the discrepancy between productivity growth and technological unemployment. This paper argues that if subsequent undesirable consequences of technological unemployment are to be avoided, there is a need for additional research to embed normative considerations into a scientific context, by linking technological progress with the ‘Ought to Be’ of the economic and societal order.
