    Depictions of the Female Artist in French Caribbean Women’s Theatre2020In: Gender and Authority Across Disciplines, Space and Time / [ed] Adele Bardazzi and Alberica Bazzoni, Palgrave Macmillan, 2020Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter addresses the experience of black female creatives as depicted in plays by Caribbean women writers; Maryse Condé’s Pension les alizés (1988), and Gerty Dambury’s Trames (2008) and Des doutes et des errances (2014). The plays here analyzed depict female characters as artists, writers, or even performers, who attempt to reconcile everyday life, relationships and their creative work. Condé and Dambury stage the obstacles relating to race and gender discrimination their characters face, but also how these women transcend stereotypes and strive for a new form of creative expression. Looking at plays written between the 1980s and the mid-2010s – a period which witnessed intense fluctuations of the concepts of race, gender, and identity in the arts and society – allows us to appraise the development of these concerns from the late twentieth to the early twenty-first century.

    Guiding migrant parents in Nordic welfare states. Cases from Norway and Sweden2020In: Family life in transition: Borders, transnational mobility , and welfare society in Nordic countries / [ed] Hiitola, Johanna; Turtiainen, Kati; Gruber, Sabine and Tiilikainen, Marja, London: Routledge, 2020, p. 23-35Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter addresses the legitimacy of public authorities to interfere in parenting when migrant parents are framed as a target group. The empirical data consist of three parenting programs developed and implemented in Norway and Sweden, specially designed to address migrant parents. The text analysis departs from three questions: Why migrant families are targeted? What kind of transition the programs promote? How are these transitions expected to be achieved? Based on the results from the text analysis we discuss how authorities guide but also govern through these programs. The defining of the target group and their needs, as well as addressing the parents can be understood as epistemic governance, a governance aimed for affecting other’s views of reality, their conceptions, aspirations, motivations and in the end practices. A conclusion is that the friendly bridging and mutual approaches used by the three parenting programs are elusive. The possible problem of oppression and racialisation is immanent in the programs and embedded in a theoretical framework about modernity that supports taken for granted standpoints about cultural differences (as better or worse). This makes it difficult for the participating parents to discuss on what premises they are selected as a target group.

    A world of clothes: Indian textiles and the germination of polities in eastern Indonesia2019In: The 10th EuroSEAS conference: 10–13 September 2019 at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, EuroSEAS , 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The early modern period saw a very comprehensive import of textiles from South Asia to the Malay Archipelago. Such cloths could be high-quality products which were coveted as status items as far as Maluku and beyond, such as the well-known patola (double-woven ikat). The imported goods also included less expensive cotton cloths. This trade has a long history that goes back before the advent of European economic and political interference. Europeans, especially the VOC, tried to control the trade flows with varying success. The paper discusses how the import of Indian textiles underpinned political structures and networks in Nusa Tenggara Timor and Maluku from the 16th to the 19th centuries, analyzing the way that import goods was indigenized and became important symbols for authority and redistribution, something that is mirrored in early-modern (mostly European) documents as well as later tradition. Through this, we may discern how a consumer culture developed in a mainly nonWestern context which was however connected to early colonial economic management and shipping.

    Between resistance and co-operation: Contact zones in Aru Islands in the VOC period2019In: Wacana, ISSN 1411-2272, E-ISSN 2407-6899, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 480-506Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article is focused on early colonial interaction with the Aru Islands, geographically located in southern Maluku, at the easternmost end of the Indian Ocean world. The study examines how relationships were constructed in the course of the seventeenth century, how they were institutionalized and how this engendered forms of hybridity. Moreover, it discusses forms of resistance and avoidance in relation to the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Aru constitutes an interesting case as it is was one of the easternmost places in the world in which Islam and Christianity gained a (limited) foothold in the early-modern period, and it also marked the outer limit of Dutch authority. Aru differed from most geographical areas approached by the VOC because of its lack of any large-scale political structures and its relatively non-hierarchical society. The article discusses the forging of Dutch-Arunese political ties after the Banda massacre in 1621, as well as the role of Asian competitors of the VOC such as the Makassarese and Ceramese, the increasing adaptation to world religions in an Arunese setting, conditions in the European-indigenous contact zones and, finally, the conflicts arising from the imbalances between western and eastern Aru, in which the VOC repeatedly intervened to suppress the villages of the Backshore (east coast).

    By Jingo! Methods for researching popular imperialism2019In: History Compass, ISSN 1478-0542, E-ISSN 1478-0542, Vol. 17, no 5, p. 1-10, article id e12531Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study of popular imperialism, or the extent to which the ordinary citizens of an imperial metropole were aware of and supported their country's imperial expansion, provides a crucial empirical basis for evaluating the causes of and responsibility for colonial aggression. Nevertheless, this topic has received considerably less attention than comparable topics like fascism, genocide, or nationalism, and a comparative conversation between scholars of different empires is largely lacking. Together with a companion article, "Imperial Ardor or Apathy? A Comparative International Historiography of Popular Imperialism," this article will provide inspiration for future studies by summarizing different approaches to and methodological problems involved in the study of popular imperialism, drawing on a wide range of research on several empires.

    Colonial Food Metaphors in Postcolonial Cinema: The Case of Michelange Quay’s Eat, for This is My Body (2007)2019In: Global Media Journal: Canadian Edition, ISSN 1918-5901, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 39-48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the use of imagery relating to food and culinary practices and their relation to colonial power dynamics and stereotypes in films set or filmed in post-colonial contexts. The colonial history of the Caribbean is particularly linked to the use of food imagery in the definition of colonial power dynamics and the representation of colonized and enslaved populations. The works of American-Haitian filmmaker Michelange Quay exploit this imagery as a critique of Haiti’s colonial past and neocolonial present. The article focuses on Quay’s Eat, for This is My Body (2007), an oneiric exploration of race, power, religion, hunger, food and freedom, set in France and Haiti. The film is analysed through the prism of “food metaphors” evoking cannibalism, starvation, and gluttony found in colonial discourses and which persist in post-colonial representations and imaginaries. The analysis shows how these metaphors are visually represented on film, and how they are used to constitute a new idiom with which to describe the postcolonial experience in Haiti.

Traube, New York & Oxford: Berghahn Books, 2019, p. 241-265Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter proposes an approach to the study of Timorese historicity that implies crossing archival records from different European languages and subject positions. The question of “how to formulate a Timorese history of Timor” must consider the contribution of early modern Western-authored accounts, in which “indigenous voices” can also often be found. However, a Timor-centered historiography should also not be reduced to European accounts. In the case of Timor-Leste, a full answer to that question, the author proposes, resides in a work of “triangulation of source materials”: triangulation between Portuguese and Dutch written documents; between these and the East Timorese oral record (as this can be retrieved from ritual keepers, such as the lian na’in); or still between the latter and the findings of archaeology and linguistics.

    Efter unionsupplösningen: Nation och genuspolitik i Hjalmar Söderbergs Den allvarsamma leken2019In: Edda. Nordisk tidsskrift for litteraturforskning, ISSN 0013-0818, E-ISSN 1500-1989, Vol. 106, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers issues of nationalism and gender politics in Hjalmar Söderberg’s 1912 novel The Serious Game [Den allvarsamma leken]. I focus on the depiction of the dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway that took place in 1905 in order to analyze the intersection of nation and gender in fin-de-siècle discourses of liberalism. Ellen Key (depicted in the novel as “Ellen Hej”) is a key figure not only in the period’s feminist debates but also as an activist advocating for the peaceful dissolution of the union. I focus on Key and Söderberg’s views of the nation as one stage in a progressive evolution towards a cosmopolitan community, as well as Key’s controversial sexual politics. Moreover, I show how the novel naturalizes heterosexual desire in the main character Arvid’s incurable desire for Lydia. I argue finally that the melancholy tone permeating the novel is a mode of expression for liberalism’s unfinished projects of emancipation for both women and the nation.

    Fantastik i interkulturellt perspektiv2019In: Svenska historikermötet – Växjö, 8-10 maj 2019: Tema: Rättigheter, Linnaeus University , 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Berättelser om det fantastiska, det som överträffar det realistiskt observerbara, finns i snart sagt alla kultursfärer. Deras gestaltning och funktionssätt skiljer sig kraftigt från plats till plats, även om vissa troper tenderar att komma igen. Detta paper gör en jämförelse mellan pseudohistoriska texter i tre olika kulturella kontexter. Det gäller medeltida europeiska, premoderna kinesiska och premoderna sydöstasiatiska texter som utger sig för att beskriva ett avlägset förgånget. Här diskuteras hur dessa texters tematik förhåller sig till varandra när det gäller att inkorporera fantastiska element såsom övernaturliga varelser, krafter m m. Dessa inslag av fantastik relateras till textgenrernas funktion (underhållning, litterär konst, legitimation, etc).

    Food, Otherness and National Identity in French and French- language Cinemas2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses how national identity and Othering are constructed through representations of food in French and French-language films. I focus on the French context, for if there have been a number of studies of films depicting the experiences of migrant communities in France and the confrontations between migrant communities and the "host" French communities (Sherzer, 1996; Dubois, 2016; Higbee, 2013; Berghahn, 2013; Asava, 2017), few delve into the representations of food and culinary practices in much detail. The questions raised in this paper may however be applied to other national contexts. To demonstrate how images and discourses related to cooking and eating are employed to convey specific representations of national identity and foreignness, I analyse four films made in the first decades of the twenty-first century (The Secret of the Grain, 2007, Abdellatif Kechiche; Cuire ensemble, 2014, François Pirotte and Foued Bellali; Serial (Bad) Weddings, 2014, Philippe de Chauveron; Tazzeka, 2017, Jean-Philippe Gaud). In these films food comes across as a marker of difference and/or sameness, and as a key element in the construction of national identity. The paper also investigates how these questions of food and national identity are further problematised by factors such as the migrant crisis in Europe and the existence of "postmigratory" generations (Kleppinger and Reeck, 2018) in France who consider themselves French as well as possessing multiple cultural identities.

    Fortress conservation, wildlife legislation and the Baka Pygmies of southeast Cameroon2019In: GeoJournal, ISSN 0343-2521, E-ISSN 1572-9893, Vol. 84, no 4, p. 1035-1055Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The indigenous Baka Pygmies of southeast Cameroon depend mainly on environmental incomes for their livelihoods, usually hunting and gathering and the sustainable use of their ecological systems. They are at the verge of profound political, socioeconomic, and environmental transformations orchestrated by modern state laws regulating hunting and international development actors and agencies whose development vision expressed through conservation often underlie a contradiction with their way of life. This ethnographic study aims to document the dynamics of the institution of the great hunting expedition among the Baka. An interplay between the overexploitation of forestry resources, the creation of protected areas (fortress conservation), the full protection of certain classes of large mammals, the use of specific tools forbidden by existing forestry legislation and the ruthless behaviour of ‘eco-guards’ have led to changes in the organization of the great hunting expedition. To better address the socio-cultural aspects of biodiversity conservation and consequently strengthen the legislation regulating the wildlife sector in the country, conservation stakeholders must be conscious of the multiple entanglements between human and other life forms and the ecology of hunting. This suggests the need for a rights-based approach to conservation that recognizes the entanglement of ‘multispecies assemblages’ and respects indigenous land rights.

    Fredens och barmhärtighetens budbärare? [The harbingers of peace and mercy?]: Hugh Lenox Scott och den amerikanska arméns relationer med Oklahomas indianer under 1890-talet [Hugh Lenox Scott and US Army−Indian relations in Oklahoma in the 1890s]2019In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 139, no 3, p. 455-481Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Three tense events involving the US Army and the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache nations in Oklahoma in the decades after the end of the Great Plains Wars seemed destined to end in violence: The Ghost Dance in 1890−91, the death of three Kiowa boys in a blizzard in 1891 and the transfer of Geronimo and around three hundred Chiricahua Apache Indians to Oklahoma in 1895. In all of these events a US Cavalry officer, Hugh Lenox Scott, played a key role as a soldier-diplomat. Through his linguistic skills and inter-cultural competence, Scott, assisted by Iseeo, a Kiowa army scout and close friend of Scott’s, managed to prevent the three situations from erupting in violence. These outcomes are in stark contrast to what happened around the same time in the Northern Plains, where violence erupted on several occasions, most conspicuously at Wounded Knee in December 1890, when US troops killed between 150 and 200 Lakota Indians. The purpose of this micro historical study is to highlight how the military, in concrete action, could promote peace and development in their dealings with American Indians and to explore the significance of personal relations, tolerance and trust for the maintenance of peace. These factors were crucial for the more peaceful development on the Southern Plains compared with in the north. In promoting peace, moreover, Scott not only acted as a diplomat in relation to the Indians; he also successfully advised his superior commanders not to send troops into the field in order to uphold order and quell any possible unrest. Such deployment of troops, Scott was convinced, was like putting a keg of gunpowder in front of an open fire and risked sparking uncontrolled and lethal violence between the soldiers and the Indians, to the detriment of the latter, as happened at Wounded Knee. Based on his long service as a soldier-diplomat, Scott later in life developed a general theory about the military as a peacemaking institution. According to Scott, it was politicians and the people who made war and the task of the military was to conquer the peace. His styling of the US soldier as the ”harbinger of peace and mercy”, however, depended on Scott ignoring the many instances when the US military had failed to maintain peace and order, both in relation to the American Indians and in colonies overseas.

    Abstract [en]

    Were the ordinary citizens of imperial metropoles during the 19th and 20th centuries arduous supporters or apathetic observers of their country's colonial expansionism, or did their relationship to empire fall somewhere in between? Although this is a central question for understanding the how and why of modern imperialism and evaluating responsibility for colonial wrongs, scholars in the only loosely knit field of popular imperialism have arrived at widely divergent answers. Complementing its companion article, "By Jingo! Methods for Researching Popular Imperialism," this article will present an overview of the conclusions of existing studies and present ways that future studies can become more theoretically and methodologically sophisticated through inspiration from comparative and transnational history, nationalism studies, and genocide studies.

    Abstract [en]

    When Australia was circumnavigated by Europeans in 1801–02, French and British natural historians were unsure how to describe the Indigenous peoples who inhabited the land they charted and catalogued. Ideas of race and of savagery were freely deployed by both British and French, but a discursive shift was underway. While the concept of savagery had long been understood to apply to categories of human populations deemed to be in want of more historically advanced ‘civilisation’, the application of this term in the late 18th and early 19th centuries was increasingly being correlated with the emerging terminology of racial characteristics. The terminology of race was still remarkably fluid, and did not always imply fixed physical or mental endowments or racial hierarchies. Nonetheless, by means of this concept, natural historians began to conceptualise humanity as subject not only to historical gradations, but also to the environmental and climatic variations thought to determine race. This in turn meant that the degree of savagery or civilisation of different peoples could be understood through new criteria that enabled physical classification, in particular by reference to skin colour, hair, facial characteristics, skull morphology, or physical stature: the archetypal criteria of race. While race did not replace the language of savagery, in the early years of the 19th century savagery was re-inscribed by race.

    Landscapes and the Law: Environmental Politics, Regional Histories, and Contests over Nature2019Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Landscapes and the Law is situated at the crossroads of environmental, colonial, and legal history. It examines the role of law in consolidating early colonial rule from the perspective of people’s access to nature in forests and hill tracts. This major interdisciplinary study is thus concerned with the social history of legal processes and the making of law, being as relevant today as it was when first published a decade ago.

    The book is focused equally on the multitude of colliding claims for access to land and resources, and the complex ways in which customary rights are redefined and codified for the purpose of securing and legitimizing colonial sovereign rule.

    Basing her archival and field work on the Nilgiri Hills in South India, Gunnel Cederlöf explores conflicting perceptions of nature and political visions that are projected onto landscapes and people. She traces debates on property and land rights, and how the empirical sciences merge with the legal claims justifying land acquisition. Popular resistance strategies to such exploitation are analysed, and a cross-cultural comparison made between early legal processes and social history in India, New Zealand, and North America.

    Abstract [en]

    The suppression of piracy and other forms of maritime violence was a keystone in the colonisation of Southeast Asia. Focusing on what was seen in the nineteenth century as the three most pirate-infested areas in the region - the Sulu Sea, the Strait of Malacca and Indochina - this comparative study in colonial history explores how piracy was defined, contested and used to resist or justify colonial expansion, particularly during the most intense phase of imperial expansion in Southeast Asia from c.1850 to c.1920. In doing so, it demonstrates that piratical activity continued to occur in many parts of Southeast Asia well beyond the mid-nineteenth century, when most existing studies of piracy in the region end their period of investigation. It also points to the changes over time in how piracy was conceptualised and dealt with by each of the major colonial powers in the region - Britain, France, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States.

    Poor man's crop: evading opium monopoly2019In: Modern Asian Studies, ISSN 0026-749X, E-ISSN 1469-8099, Vol. 53, no 2, p. 633-659Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on opium in colonial India has so far mainly focused on the competing Malwa and Bengal opium currents under the control of the Sindia and Holkar families and of the British East India Company, respectively. The historical trajectory has tended to emphasize the implementation of a draconian and all-encompassing British monopoly. This study joins the emerging efforts to search the regional histories on the margins of the strongest players’ actions on the global scene. It aims at nuancing the narratives by focusing on a region away from such centres. The study investigates the local cultivation and usage of opium in Rangpore district—a region in north Bengal that had recently been badly affected by a severe flood. Here, the drug was extensively used and the lucrative trade with neighbouring states gave small-scale cultivators an income also under hard environmental conditions. The fact that production and trade were small-scale, fragmented, and made use of markets in Cooch Bihar, Assam, and Bhutan impeded British attempts at getting in control of production and trade.

    Size Matters!: Miniature Mushafs and the Landscape of Affordances2019In: Miniature Books: The Format and Function of Tiny Religious Texts / [ed] Kristina Myrvold, Dorina Miller Parmenter, Sheffield: Equinox Publishing, 2019, p. 158-176Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this chapter is to address the question of why miniature Qur'ans have been and still are desirable objects. The question is approached with the help of the concept of "affordances" (Gibson 1986; Knappett 2005), or the different "action possibilities" that material objects present to different organisms, including humans. Affordances are relational in character, and dependent upon the organism's anatomical, psychological, and in the case of a human, cultural and social set-up and contexts. The concept of affordances is combined with James W. Watts' theoretical distinction between three different dimensions (semantic, performative, and iconic) of how humans interact with and relate to sacred texts. The result is a set of possible, and not necessarily mutually exclusive, explanations why miniature Qur'ans are desirable objects, in what contexts, and to whom.

    Slaves and bondsmen on Sumbawa: Changes in bonded labour relations on an Indonesian island, 17th-20th centuries2019In: Capture, Bondage, and Forced Relocation in Asia (1400-1900): March 13-14, 2019 - ENS de Lyon, 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Sumbawa is a relatively large but sparsely populated island in eastern Indonesia, traditionally forming the eastern frontier of Islam in this part of the Southeast Asian Archipelago. In the early-modern era the Sumbawan sultanates Bima and Dompu increased their manpower through a system of slave acquisition which is little known in the extant literature on Southeast Asian bonded labour. Slaves were acquired from the non-Muslim islands to the east, such as Flores and Sumba. Moreover, internal warfare on Sumbawa led to enslavement. Many slaves were put to work in settlements directly subservient to the royal courts, while others served in the various villages. The paper further discusses how the bonded labour relations were transformed in the 19th and 20th centuries due to negotiation between the old elites and the encroaching colonial state, and how the bonded status in the villages also eroded due to economic changes in the late colonial era.

    Slaves, Mestizos and Pedlars: Adjusting to Early Colonialism on Kisar Island, Maluku2019In: The 11th International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS): Leiden, the Netherlands, 15-19 July 2019, International Institute for Asian Studies , 2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Maluku, sometimes known euphemistically as the Spice Islands, has its niche in world history as the producer of cloves and nutmeg, and consequently the goal of early Iberian seafarers which were later superseded by the Dutch VOC. However, the southern regions of Maluku, an area of small to middle-sized islands stretching over 1,500 kilometres, has received limited attention by academic research even within Indonesia. Difficult to access from the outside, the islands did not produce commercially significant spices or valuable minerals and were not subjected to intense colonial rule until late. Politically they were not part of larger archipelagic kingdoms but traditionally fragmented in village-based polities, which formally acknowledged European suzerainty from about the 17th century. Southern Maluku has consequently been labelled "the forgotten islands". Nevertheless the islands were neither isolated or lacking in valuable products, nor did they lack historical agency in relations with the outside world. This is highlighted through a study of Kisar, a small island to the north of Timor which bonded the VOC after 1662. A study of early Kisarese-Dutch relations in the late 17th century shows how the VOC post in Banda took advantage of the strategical location of Kisar to anchor its authority in this part of the East Indies, and to secure deliveries of slaves. However, it also shows how the local pedlar elite took advantage of the Dutch presence, and the formation of a mestizo group on the island, to increase its own prerogatives in the region.

    Tamalola: Transregional connectivities, Islam, and anti-colonialism on an Indonesian island2019In: Wacana, ISSN 1411-2272, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 430-456Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study focuses on a set of events in the Aru Islands, Maluku, in the late eighteenth century which are documented in some detail by Dutch records. A violent rebellion with Muslim and anti-European overtones baffled the Dutch colonialists (VOC) and led to a series of humiliations for the Company on Aru, before eventually being subdued. As one of the main catalysts of the conflict stands the chief Tamalola from the Muslim island Ujir. Interestingly, this persons also a central figure in local traditions from Ujir. Moreover, his story connects with wider cultural and economic networks in eastern Indonesia. Thus the article asks how the imprints of the Tamalola figure in textual and non-textual sources can add to our knowledge of how communities of Eastern Indonesia ordered their lives outside colonial control.

    'The earrings:' friendship across ethnic and gendered boundaries in the American West2019In: Women's History Review, ISSN 0961-2025, E-ISSN 1747-583X, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 23-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How were relationships negotiated across ethnic, racial, and gendered boundaries in the American West in the 1920s and 1930s? Were friendships possible? What limits shaped them? In 1927, four Kiowa students enrolled at Oklahoma University as students of Swedish-born Professor of Fine Arts Oscar B. Jacobson. This article investigates the relationship between Jeanette Berry, wife of one of the Kiowa artists, and Sophie Brousse, Jacobson's French wife. It focuses on an incident when Berry presented Brousse with a gift of earrings. Placing this gift within a discussion of friendships between strangers illuminates the lines of culture, meaning, and power that separated these women. This relationship had individual ramifications but also formed part of their respective attempts to establish positions and maintain culture within Oklahoma where both American Indians and immigrants faced changing and volatile conditions. Their encounter highlights issues of class as well as ethnicity and culture.

    ‘This is my father’s painting’: A first-hand account of the creation of the most iconic rock art in Kakadu National Park2019In: Rock Art Research, ISSN 0813-0426, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 199-213Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Anbangbang Gallery in the Burrungkuy area of Kakadu National Park includes some of the most iconic rock art imagery from Australia. Visited and enjoyed by tens of thousands of visitors every year it stands as a testament to Aboriginal culture and provides a glimpse into the remarkable rock art traditions of this region. Yet, most visitors are surprised to discover that rock art was still being produced at this site in the 1960s. In this paper, we explore the most recent rock art created at the Anbangbang Gallery. Most importantly, we present new evidence from a first-hand account of the paintings being created in 1963/64 and discuss the implications of these new insights for our understanding of the practice, the artists, and the social context of rock art in northern Australia.

    A personal quest: Travel writing as self-exploration in Eddy L. Harris’s Native Stranger: A Blackamerican’s Journey into the Heart of Africa2018In: Journal of Commonwealth Literature, ISSN 0021-9894, E-ISSN 1741-6442, Vol. 53, no 3, p. 363-378Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Native Stranger: A Blackamerican's Journey into the Heart of Africa (1992), Eddy L. Harris explores what it means to be the person he is. What, if anything, connects him to Africa? What is the relation between the person he knows himself to be, and the person others see? Searching for answers to his questions, he finds himself caught between his attempts to remain open to new ways of seeing and understanding the world, on the one hand, and succumbing to the pressures of monolithic narratives about African otherness, race, belonging, roots and the past, on the other hand. This tension gives rise to an ambiguity and a number of contradictions which make the text fold back on itself. His literary project therefore ultimately serves to raise questions not only about his own identity and place in the world, but also about the conditions of writing about the self. Central among the contradictions that permeate the text is a doubling of epistemological perspectives, which can be described as an effect of what W. E. B. Dubois famously termed double-consciousness. While Harris is able to use the contradictions that arise from his writing to explore and represent the complexity of the questions that are foregrounded in his text, he is unable to answer them. His project is in other words a kind of failure, but as this article argues, this failure is the price that Harris pays to access the full complexity of selfhood, beyond political and social narratives about collective identity and how the present is shaped by the past.

    African Alterity and Metaphoricity in John Slaughter’s Brother in the Bush2018In: Alterity Studies and World Literature, E-ISSN 2209-2412, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 49-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article studies alterity in John Slaughter’s travelogue Brother in the Bush: An African American’s Search for Self in East Africa (2005). The book chronicles the author’s travels in Africa in the wake of a life-altering experience that makes him want to change the way he lives and sees the world. He therefore travels to Africa in order to search for a new self and a view of the world free from the materialist greed, insularity and artificiality of life in the West. However, Slaughter’s Africa is, more than an actual geographical space, a well of metaphors and images that he uses to discuss the alienation of middleclass life in the West. These metaphors and images are meaningful primarily from the point of view of the life that he wants to leave behind, and the alterity of Africa therefore adds few ‘new’ insights and adds little to his process of inner change.

    At nature’s edge: the global present and long-term history2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In an epoch when environmental issues make the headlines, this is a work that goes beyond the everyday. Ecologies as diverse as the Himalayas and the Indian Ocean coast, the Negev desert and the former military bases of Vietnam, or the Namib desert and the east African savannah all have in common a long-time human presence and the many ways people have modified nature. With research covering countries from Asia, Africa, and Australia, the authors come together to ask how and why human impacts on nature have grown in scale and pace from a long pre-history. 

    The chapters in this volume illumine specific patterns and responses across time, going beyond an overt centring of the European experience. The tapestry of life and the human reshaping of environments evoke both concern and hope, making it vital to understand when, why, and how we came to this particular turn in the road. Eschewing easy labels and questioning eurocentrism in today's climate vocabulary, this is a volume that will stimulate rethinking among scholars and citizens alike.

    Barn och andra anhöriga som översätter och medlar inom socialtjänst och hälso-och sjukvård2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Tidigare forskning visar att behovet av professionella tolkar är svårt att tillgodose och att personal inom offentlig verksamhet därför många gånger får hitta andra lösningar. Socialstyrelsen har påtalat det olämpliga i att anhöriga används som tolkar i hälso- och sjukvård och socialtjänst, och tog initiativ till denna undersökning.

    För verksamheter inom socialtjänst handlar bristen på tillgång till tolkar om att inte kunna utföra ett rättssäkert arbete och tillgodose brukares rättigheter. Det handlar också om effektivitet och ekonomi vid handläggning/utredning och beslut, då kostnader minskar ju mindre felmarginalerna är i kommunikationen. För det tredje handlar det om brukaren (föräldern eller vännen till det barn eller vuxne som tolkar) som har rätt att ha insikt och att kunna påverka i sitt ärende.

    Inom sjukvården kan anhöriga som tolkar innebära missförstånd som allvarligt äventyrar patientsäkerheten så att patienten inte får rätt vård, eller missförstår syftet med behandling eller medicinering. Den anhörige är emotionellt engagerad i patienten och det medför en risk att inte allt i samtalet översätts. Dessutom är den anhöriges språkkunskaper inte beprövade och inte heller kunskaperna om medicinsk och juridisk terminologi eller vedertagna begrepp inom socialtjänsten.

    För barns del innebär det dessutom att de får information de inte borde få samt att de tilldelas ett vuxenansvar i familjen. Frågor om ansvar, lojalitet och makt blir viktiga här. Slutligen handlar det om samhället i stort och om vad som främjar en långsiktig integration för icke-svensktalande brukare och de barn och/eller vuxna som får tolka åt dem.

    Det saknas idag kunskap om i vilken omfattning barn och andra anhöriga används som tolkar i Sverige. För att stärka området har vi därför kartlagt och analyserat hur professionella hanterar kommunikationen med patienter som har svårt att göra sig förstådda och ta till sig information på svenska.
