    Monument i historiekulturer: föränderlig mening i klassisk ram2005In: Tidsskrift for kulturforskning, ISSN 1502-7473, E-ISSN 2387-6727, Vol. 4, no 1-2, p. 5-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This investigation concerns methodological questions in the study of monuments. How can their meaning be delineated and understood in relationship to a broader historical culture? Three lines of argument are pursued, drawn from my own research and related to discussions in international research. 1) International research has until recently mainly focused heavily on national historical culture and symbols and thereby underestimated the existence of more complex, ambiguous and polysemic uses of monuments where other loyalties and hopes than the national are fostered. 2) From this it follows that monuments ought to be interpreted rather as processes than artefacts. The actual erection of a physical form is only one distinct phase in the making and uses of monuments which are before and after that used for specific and diverging purposes. 3) The context of historical culture has to be appreciated in a wide sense as constituted both by institutional practices, political contexts and ambitions, commercialised settings, mediated narrations and existential needs. Different methodologies developed for the study of monuments tend to focus on either their semantic meaning as pieces of art, their biography as statues and more rarely sees them as processes connected to the wider historical culture. The reason for this is that the amount of knowledge demanded to pursue the recommended line of inquiry rather exceeds the capacity of individual research and implies cooperative design of projects.

    National cultural heritage - Nordic cultural memory: negotiating politics, identity and knowledge2009In: Transnationale Erinnerungsorte: Nord- und Südeuropeische Perspektiven / [ed] Stefan Troebst, Berlin: Berliner Wissenschafts-Verlag, 2009, 1, p. 71-90Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [de]

    In wieweit spiegeln sich transnationale Erfahrungen der eigenen Vergangenheit in den Erinnerungsorten und Denkmälern Skandinaviens und der Ostseeregion? Die Vorstellung von einer gemeinsamen skandinavischen Kultur ist ein interessantes Beispiel dafür, wie eine historische Kultur als dynamische und formbare offene Identitätsressource konstruiert wird. Die Potenziale für transnationale Erinnerungen werden nur spärlich genutzt. Sowohl die akademischen Disziplinen als auch das Management des kulturellen Erbes tragen massiv dazu bei, nicht eindeutig zuzuordnenden Orten einen nationalen Stempel aufzudrücken und sie als Teil eines nationalen Erbes zu präsentieren – aber die Idee der skandinavischen Kultur lässt eine leicht geöffnete Hintertür für alternative Interpretationen.

    Platser för en bättre värld: Auschwitz, Ruhr och röda stugor2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Människor har sedan antiken närt förhoppningar om att det ska gå att lära av det förflutna, att en bättre människa och framtid ska kunna byggas på historiska lärdomar. De platser som påminner och konkret visar på den förflutna verkligheten skapar en länk mellan dåtid och nu, och bjuder till handlande för en ljusare framtid.I Platser för en bättre värld visar fyra forskare på hur denna kraft i förbindelsen mellan materiellt, platsanknutet kulturarv och historiska berättelser lever starkt idag. Stater, regioner och skolor hyser förhoppningar av skilda slag. Skolbarn i hela västvärlden reser till Auschwitz för att lära sig att ondskan inte fårupprepas - men lär de sig mer om vuxenblivandets villkor? Hembygdsföreningarna blickar nostalgiskt bakåt mot en enklare och mer genuin dåtid, men slåss också för "småfolkets" och glesbygdens värden för framtiden. Allt större delar av industrisamhället förvandlas i rask takt till ruiner, men kanske kan det omvandlas till stolthet och en resurs för en ny framtid? Detta och många fler perspektiv på värdeskapande historiebruk finns med i denna bok. Projektledaren Peter Aronsson är professor i kulturarv och historiebruk vid Tema Q vid Linköpings universitet. Övriga medverkande är Anna Eskilsson, Linköpings universitet, Kyrre Kverndokk, Universitetet i Oslo, och Cecilia Trenter, Växjö universitet.

    Shaping lives: negotiating and narrating memories2015In: Etnográfica, ISSN 0873-6561, E-ISSN 2182-2891, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 577-591Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Life stories and experiences are shaped within a broad range of uses of heavily institutionalized identity politics, mediated narratives and situational bodily experiences. Acting upon individual desires is a necessity for formation of collective identities and identification, communicatively constructing society. Examples from a variety of contexts will be used to argue that meaning is created through exchange between spheres of different logics: existential, political, market and institutional logics might openly oppose and contradict each other and crave for autonomy. When successful in establishing a powerful historical culture they do nevertheless more often reinforce each other when life experiences and new utopias are being shaped through narrating and negotiating memories to deal with contemporary challenges.

    Småländska förebilder och föredömen2011In: Småländska förebilder & föregångare / [ed] Magnus Gustafsson och Ingrid Nettervik, Växjö: Artea förlag , 2011, 1, p. 9-13Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Förebilder finns på skilda nivåer, i skilda miljöer och i skilda tider och är ofta helt vanliga människor. Den person som för en individ framstår som en förebild har inte med nödvändighet någon betydelse för en annan människa. Ibland delas idealen av många, ibland är de helt personliga.Alla de i Småländska förebilder & föregångare beskrivna personerna har anknytning till Småland.

    Alla har de påverkat sin eftervärld, antingen genom sina handlingar, som föregångare, eller genom att vara inspiratörer, som förebilder. Urvalet vill i sig visa hur vi kan uppmärksamma den kraft som finns i historien och hos de människor som före oss slitit med frågor som är varaktigt giltiga.

    De medverkande ledamöterna i Smålands Akademi har gjort ett personligt urval och ofta utifrån möten i livet skrivit om "sin" smålänning. Objektet kan vara ens egen far som för Margareta Strömstedt eller en rad tanter som för Birgit Carlstén. Det är inte ens säkert att alla har existerat i verkligheten. De har dock samtliga satt sina tydliga spår och på olika vis haft inflytande på sitt landskap och dess invånare.Läs och fundera över vilka dina småländska förebilder är och vilka du ännu inte har upptäckt.

    Svenska historiebruk: nationellt och lokalt2008In: KulturSverige 2009: problemanalys och statistik / [ed] Svante Beckman, Sten Månsson, Linköping: SweCult / Linköpings universitet , 2008, 1, p. 37-42Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Med sina rötter i 1600-talets stormaktstid är historiebruk och kulturarvsförvaltning ett av de äldsta och största områdena för kulturpolitik. Under stormaktstiden etablerades fornminnesinventeringar och Antikvitetskollegium för att utforska, bevara och visa nationens kulturarv. Nationalmuseernas presentation av nationen som kulturnation med förebildliga konstverk och historiska händelser samt berättelser om vem som ingår i gemenskapen och vad som hotar den tillhör kärnverksamheten. Men kulturarvsprocesser initieras inte bara från ansvarigt myndighetshåll. I lokala processer lämnar idag kommuner, entreprenörer och föreningar nya bud på vad som är kulturarv och nya bilder av Sverige uppstår. Artikeln argumenterar för att dynamiken idag i högre grad ligger utanför de etablerade institutionerna och att detta utmanar kulturpolitikens prioriteringar.

    The productive dilemmas of history2011In: Rethinking time: essays on history, memory and representation / [ed] Hans Ruin and Andrus Ers, Huddinge: Södertörns högskola , 2011, p. 29-38Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Questions about the temporality and historicity of knowledge have gained new urgency in the human sciences in recent decades. New modes of critical theorizing, coupled with a reshaping of the historical space of Western culture following the unification of Europe and intensified political and technological globalization, have highlighted the necessity of understanding the formation of historical consciousness from new angles. The "uses of history", the commodification of the past, the pathologies of memory, the chronological framework of historical narrative, and the technological forms of representing and maintaining tradition all now require cross-disciplinary interpretation. This volume gathers a wide range of researchers from philosophy, history, archeology, and the aesthetic and social sciences in a collaborative effort to critically explore historical consciousness as time, memory, and representation

    National museums in Germany: anchoring competing communities2011In: Building national museums in Europe 1750–2010: conference proceedings from EuNaMus, European National Museums: Identity Politics, the Uses of the Past and the European Citizen, Bologna 28-30 April 2011 / [ed] Peter Aronsson & Gabriella Elgenius, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2011, p. 327-362Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From 1760-2010, Germany has been marked by several levels of nation-building as well as many different ideological and territorial projects. This inquiry has focused on processes of long continuity, spanning unification in both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, adding the most important ruptures and institutional inventions to get a firm-enough basis for conclusions on the institutional role of museums vis-a-vis the state-making process. The most significant periods for the interaction between museums and nation-building can be labelled

    1. The struggle, leading to Germany’s unification in 1871, where several regions made their bids through museums.
    2. Imperial unity on display from 1871-1914. National museums were stabilizing and universalizing the German Empire in the world.
    3. Nazi cultural policy, 1933-1945: Comprehensive museum plans for the Third Reich.
    4. GDR (German Democratic Republic) national museums between 1949-1990 were dominated by the ideology of socialist culture.
    5. The Federal republic, before and after 1990: inscribing Nazi and GDR as pasts contained within brackets.

    Germany’s history is marked by the processes of unification meeting dissociative forces resulting in dramatic political shifts and the persistence of a complex federal structure. Museums reflect various strategies both within this history and through contributions to stabilizing, reinforcing and materializing ideas of continuity. Balancing the unifying message of the heritage of a Roman – German legacy and later federal structures resulted in a distribution of national museums in Berlin, Munich, Nuremberg and Bonn. A long-standing cooperation and tension between local, regional and national identities with a clear utopian and activist element marks initiatives taken for establishing national museums. What later became national museums often started as private individual or collective elite initiatives aimed at putting certain projects on the political agenda.

    The enlightenment ambitions went beyond national borders with the establishment of Humboldt University in Berlin in 1810 and several of the institutions at the Museumsinselas “Universalmuseen”. The scientific and technical scope of Deutsches Museum in Munich captured the rational dimension in German identity politics into the next century. These rational and scientific ambitions coincided in time and helped to legitimize both military national unification and imperial undertakings.

    Implicit and explicit historical narratives representing the existence of German culture dominated national museums with a plastic delimitation between a European (Roman), Germanspeaking and German state as the space of representation. Art and cultural history was more expandable, while political history followed the honours and sorrows of political community.

    National museums have, overall, survived with an astonishing continuity when successively changing the goal of state-making from creating the state, an empire, a Nazi state to overcoming that past and creating democratic visions in both liberal and communist versions to, again, healing that division and constructing it as a parenthesis in history. A re-nationalisation process post-1990 again activated investments in museums and reveals again a standing ambiguity in dealing with national sentiments. This is most clearly visible in museum discussions and projects dealing with the NS-legacy versus demands for “Normalisierung”.

    As opposed to many European countries from France to Greece that have a high level of centralization within the field of culture, both culture and cultural politics is, in Germany, mainly dealt with on a regional level within each Bundesland. This can partly be explained by the terrifying experience of a centralized rule and the misuse of art and culture for political ends made during the NS-regime (Klein 2003):71). After the war, one sought to prevent this through legislation by reducing state influence within the cultural policy sphere through the foundational law (GG article 5(3) and 30). A federal - and thus fragmented - Germany was also something desired by the Allies. However, a decentralized Germany was nothing entirely new. An on-going interplay between regional and central forces in representing the state was one of the long-term phenomena, although driven by various logics: In the mid-19th century, the relative strength and actual outcome of the unification process was naturally open-ended which allowed for several strong suggestions, while mid-20thcentury dynamics was determined by the urge not to repeat the mishaps of a strong national ideology. The current trend seems to lend itself to stronger nationalizing forces in the field of memory politics.

    The overarching argument of the role played by national museums in the making of the German state and nation is that it has provided a platform for a cultural constitution only slowly negotiating changing ideas of what it means to be German and how to relate to local, regional and transnational communities. Hence, the main impact of the museums is to secure ideas of continuity in the midst of dramatic political change.

    Abstract [en]

    This online publication is produced within the three-year research programme EuNaMus – European National Museums: Identity Politics, the Uses of the Past and the European Citizen, coordinated at Tema Q at Linköping University (www.eunamus.eu).

    EuNaMus explores the creation and power of the heritage created and presented by European national museums to the world, Europe and its states, as an unsurpassable institution in contemporary society. National museums are defined and explored as processes of institutionalized negotiations where material collections and displays make claims and are recognized as articulating and representing national values and realities. Questions asked in the project are why, by whom, when, with what material, with what result and future possibilities are this museums shaped.

    This Open Access publication gives a comparative overview of the historical roles of national museums in state-making processes. It has been created to stimulate discussion and debate among academics, policy-makers, museum professionals and citizens. The individual author is responsible for the content of each report and if you have any comments please do not hesitate to contact the author who would welcome these. Further publications from EuNaMus are in process. Please consult www.eunamus.eu for updated information.

    Abstract [en]

    National museums refer to those institutions, collections and displays claiming, articulating and representing dominant national values, myths and realities. From this perspective, national museums can hereby be explored as historic and contemporary processes of negotiations and values that constitute the basis for national communities and state-formations. National museums have thus become significant within arenas of negotiation and consolidation of new answers to questions ultimately linked to nationhood, citizenship and the role of the nation within a system of other nations. We argue here that national representation and representations of nations, as negotiated by national museums, provide a contribution to shaping and representing the socio-political community. Moreover, the fundamental properties of nations and states, perceived of as legitimate and factual representations of the world, are presenting the nation within a political system of other nations. Once established, national museums become a cultural asset and force unto themselves that are to be regarded and rearranged but seldom destroyed by new socio-political groups and visions. The longevity of their existence across periods of political change provides one of the powerful features of the institution.

    Some periods and contexts have, in particular, been conducive to museum-building such as the intensive demand for national museums that followed in the wake of the Napoleonic wars with the creation of national states, justifying autonomy of the state on the basis of national distinctiveness and uniqueness. As a result, regional differences within nations were rearranged in order to fit with such affiliations and promote new loyalties. The notion of a western civilisation and western values were also nationalized in the process of museum making in Europe resulting in different interpretations of universal, national and transnational values and identifications. It is within such contexts, among many, that a study of national museums - as a means of representing high culture, values and national pride - provide illuminating and comparative data on the many related processes of nationalisation.

    The aim of the EuNaMus research programme is to to illuminate gaps in existing research by adding a crucial comparative perspective to the study of national museums. We are hereby presenting the first comprehensive overview over national museums in Europe and outline the basis of comparative elements and significant variables. In a comparative light and as a rule, the trajectories of the European national museums provide an account of the parallel interactions between museum, nation and state and give witness to the long standing relevance of national museums as constituent components of what will be analysed as negotiated cultural constitutions. It is through these that nations have expressed a yearning for a golden and legitimate past. Attempting to balance such perceived needs for continuity with the increased diversity and difference of the contemporary world turns the notion of a unified agenda of the future into a challenge.

    Bystämman som en mötesplats för jordägarna: En lokalhistorisk undersökning om de gemensamma resurserna inom Benestad byalag åren 1886-19282014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the organization of the village society in Benestad, in southern Sweden, during the period from 1886 to 1928. The study focuses on the commonly owned resources in the village and how the landowners there came together and shared the resources. By studying the records of the societies’ meetings, and in particular the cases that concerns the common resources, a categorization has been done.

     

    The results of the study show that the landowners in Benestad shared pasture lands, milk carriage and other resources with one another. Overall, the village society had a strong organization with at least two yearly meetings about the commonly owned resources. Not everyone was however welcomed to the meetings and the wives and children had to trust their housemaster to also consider their interests. By comparing the results with Elinor Ostrom’s theory of eight design principles that unites all stabile institutions that handle commonly owned resources, one can say that the village society in Benestad was a stabile establishment. In fact, the society is still active - even if the landowners nowadays deal with other matters than those of the milk carriage.

    En Meningsfull Historia?: Didaktiska perspektiv på historieförmedlande museiutställningar om migration och kulturmöten2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis concerns the mediation of history in a public arena in society, namely in historical exhibitions in museums. The foci of the thesis are exhibitions on migration history, cultural encounters, “Us” and “the Others”, and in particular how relations based on the principles of class, gender and ethnicity are mediated. The research concerns two exhibitions – "Afrikafararna" (The Travellers to Africa) and "Kongospår" (Traces of Congo).

    In this thesis museums are viewed as arenas for public education and meaning-making. It explores how the historical contents as well as the forms of mediation in the exhibitions correspond to the task of promoting democracy that has been assigned to Swedish museums. This task is expressed in the intentions of the respective museums, in the general policies on culture and also in the policy documents for schools. Therefore the thesis also explores how pupils and teachers understand the mediation of history and use the museum as a source for learning.

    Exhibitions are regarded in this thesis as mediation processes of history. Three distinct phases can be seen in this process – the phase of production, the phase of mediation and the phase of reception. People connected to the different phases, such as curators, producers, museum educators, and pupils, have been interviewed. These interviews show how conditions, convictions and scope for action influence how the stories of migration and cultural encounters are told and understood. The contents of the exhibitions are analysed from a perspective of class, gender and ethnicity. Furthermore, the limitations and possibilities for the visitors to intensify their historical consciousness are discussed.

    The study shows how economic conditions and access to historical source material influence the way history is mediated, but also, and to a very large extent, convictions on pedagogy and concepts of history among museum staff. The latter two are determining factors when it is made clear that the way the historical source material is used results in the fact that history is mediated in a way that does not correspond to the intentions and goals to promote democratic values, such as equality, and active democratic readiness for action.

    The study shows that the exhibitions in question mediate patterns of subordination and asymmetrical relations between women and men and between Swedes/Scandinavians and Africans in their mediation of history. There are sometimes very distinct lines between “Us” and “the Others”. One of the exhibitions offers more space for individual meaning-making and reflection than the other, however, because of its problematization of the occurrence of African artefacts in Scandinavia and because there are more stories and more voices in the exhibition.

    The interviews with teachers and pupils show that the visits to the exhibitions are often isolated events that are rarely incorporated into the students’ education in a prolonged theme or perspective. Several students uncritically accepted the mediation in the exhibition, others were provoked and challenged, but the students had little opportunity to discuss these experiences in either the museum or in school. In summing up, several of the results of the analysis show that the mediation of history in the exhibitions cannot be described as corresponding to the demands of a democratic conception of education.

    "Slave trade is a commerce carried to the highest pitch of human depravity": En retorikanalys av Carl Bernhard Wadström och brittiska abolitionisters argument mot slavhandeln.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate how the British abolition movement used the Swedish abolitionist Carl Bernhard Wadström's argument against the slave trade. We want to investigate which rhetoric Wadström himself used and which rhetoric abolitionists used when referring to Wadström's arguments. To investigate which rhetoric is used, we have taken support in Aristotle's theories of rhetoric and, above all, his ideas on the three modes of persuasion, ethos, pathos and logos. The source material that forms the basis of the study is Wadström's book Observations on the slave trade and five other types of texts written by abolitionists where Wadström and his arguments against the slave trade are mentioned. The main result we found is that Wadström in his book uses an emotional language to convince his readers of the evil of the slave trade. However, the abolitionists do not use an emotional language in their texts when using Wadström's arguments. Abolitionists used ethos and logos as modes of persuasions to convince that slave trade should be banned.

    Utanför det fyrkantiga klassrummet: Historiska studiebesöks värden och betydelse, som de ses av lärare och personal vid historiska besöksmål i Kalmar2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker vad lärare och pedagogisk personal på historiska institutioner tänker om elevers studiebesök på platser med historisk anknytning. Dessutom undersöker vi huruvida historiska studiebesök kan främja elevernas historiemedvetande utifrån teorin om historiemedvetandets fem processer. Utifrån intervjuer med lärare på högstadieskolor såväl som pedagogisk personal på historiska besöksmål har vi funnit att det finns tydliga värden i att göra historiska studiebesök samt vissa problem och hinder. Utöver detta har vi funnit att elevers historiemedvetande under vissa förutsättning kan främjas av att de får göra dylika besök.

    An East Timorese Domain Luca from Central and Peripheral Perspectives2017In: Bijdragen Tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde, ISSN 0006-2294, E-ISSN 2213-4379, Vol. 173, no 2-3, p. 325-355Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The East Timorese kingdom Luca is described as the hegemon of the eastern parts of Timor in some nineteenth-century works. This is gainsaid by other data, which point to the existence of a multitude of petty kingdoms. This article scrutinizes Luca's claim to power from a number of angles, utilizing European records and contemporary anthropological fieldwork. First, we analyse the claims of the centre as reflected in colonial and indigenous narratives. Second, we investigate narratives from the 'periphery', that is, the minor adjacent domains of Vessoro and Babulo. Third, we offer a comprehensive discussion of Luca's role from a wider geographical perspective. In this way we produce a 'general account' that situates the symbolic and historical significance of Luca within the Timorese understanding of time, ritual, and power.

    50 år av tvetydighet: En Historiografisk analys av diskussionen kring resolution 242 av juridiska och historiska forskare2018Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The following study is a historiographical analysis of previous articles in academic journals discussing the U.N. Security Council resolution 242, which is a diplomatic and legally binding document, aimed at securing peace in the Middle East after the June War of 1967 between Israel and its neighboring Arab Countries. The study analyses various texts written by juridical and historical researchers, which discuss the resolution and its ability to generate a lasting peace in the Middle East. The problem lies in the linguistic features present in the resolution, more specifically in the lack of a definitive term regarding occupied territories in times of war. Various interpretations of the resolution give different answers, as some have interpreted it as obligating Israel to return all occupied territories, whilst others have interpreted it as guidelines, thus not legally binding Israel or any other involved actor to any specific actions in regards to the occupied territories. It is as befitting that this study is presented 50 years after the conflict arose, as it is telling that the discussion has failed to evolve during this time, with the same set of interpretations being relevant. The conflict is yet to be resolved, and this study presents various texts explaining and discussing the problematic elements of the resolution and international relations which have inhibited the peace process from finding a lasting conclusion.

    Digitaliserade möjligheter för skolan : En studie av två spels pedagogiska potential för historieundervisning i grundskolan2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines computer and video games and their capacity of being useful in teaching sessions. Focus is being put at a possible pedagogical potential and how it is being expressed in games mechanics. To get answers on these subjects’ studies by Professor James Paul Gee and Jesse Schell is used together in creating a model for analysis. With this model together with a narrative analysis this essay hopes to give clarifications on if a pedagogical potential is present and if so, how it is being expressed.

    Studies in this paper shows that a pedagogical potential is overall present in used material. It is showed differently depending on basic mechanics that different computer and video games relies on. An especially contribution is being held based on what view games are being experienced from.  Both games show usefulness regarding historical learning and can contribute especially towards visual aspects and as a complementary material in today’s education. What’s really matter on using computer and videogames as learning materials is what happen around them and the foundational constructions of games.

    Urshults Knektar: En studie om vad som hände de indelta knektarna från Urshults rotar 1709 till 17182014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines what happened to soldiers from Urshult in military service of Sweden during the diminished power of the country in the beginning of the eighteen century. Information of interest is taken from the soldiers’ age, time of service and other annotations of interest that shows to be helpful when examining their fate.  First off, this study explains Sweden’s situation during this period of time. To get a grasp about the situation, allotment is explained as well as the most important events in the big Nordic war. This study is based on qualitative content analysis and GMRs are used as its main resource of information and consists of empiric analysis.

    The result of this paper shows that very few soldiers from Urshult were able to return home alive. After eight years of service most of the soldiers from Urshult are showed to be either killed or captured. During this period of time, casualties in the army were mostly dependent on diseases that occurred during travels between fights.

     This study however shows that soldiers from Urshult did more often die directly as a result from battle rather than from disease traveling between them.

    Imperialister, angripare eller beskyddare?: En omvärldsanalys av tre tidningars rapportering om Vietnamkriget 1964-1975 och Afghanistankriget 1979-1989.2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    From the end of the Second World War until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 the world was divided. An iron curtain separated the world into two parts, east and west. These were dominated by the two great powers, the Soviet Union and the USA. The contradictions between the great powers should characterize the whole period that was named the Cold War. USA and the Soviet Union never met in open confrontation during this time, but it happened indirectly in the many conflicts that occurred during the Cold War. The Vietnam War (1964-1975) and the Afghanistan War (1979-1989) were two conflicts in which the great powers brought war against smaller states and the non-fighting part supported the resistance against the great power.

     

    The purpose of this study is to examine the three Swedish newspapers, Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens nyheter och Norrskensflamman, and thereby discover how they reported during the Vietnam War and the Afghanistan War.  We seek the answer on following questions: What did the reporting looked like during the Vietnam War and the Afghanistan War and how did it change over time? How does the newspapers political point of view appear on the editorial pages? Which international outlook can be seen in the news report and which are the similarities and differences?

     

    In order to do this we’ve used a qualitative method. The result shows that three different international outlooks are described in the newspapers. We can also confirm that the political point of view for each newspaper is confirmed by the standard reporting and primarily by the content of the editorial pages.

    Log-boats within the Ertebölle culture have had a broad use in the society. From social usesas transport and communication devises to economical uses within hunting and fishing. Thelog-boats have been quite large, larger than log-boats in later periods. With a length of up to 10 meters and a width of 0,5-1 meter the log-boat have been big enough to carry a family andthere gear along the cost. Even though the long and narrow shape of the log-boat have made them mostly suitable for calm and shallow water they have still aloud the people of theErtebölle culture to cross major waters such as the sound between Denmark and Sweden.
