    Harry Schein trodde på progressiva framsteg2017In: Dagens Nyheter, ISSN 1101-2447, no 2017-04-11Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Diskussionen om Harry Scheins komplicerade förhållande till sitt judiska arv rasar vidare. ”Ulf Öfverbergs inlägg i debatten om Harry Schein visar hur konservativt det kulturpolitiska samtalet har blivit”, skriver Stefan Arvidsson, professor i religionshistoria vid Linnéuniversitetet i en replik.

    Humanistisk religionsforskning: En otydlig tradition belyst av "Arbetets riddare"2013In: Chaos: skandinavisk tidsskrift for religionshistoriske studier, ISSN 0108-4453, E-ISSN 1901-9106, Vol. 2, no 60, p. 9-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The humanistic tradition within the study of regligions has currently lost much of its identity. It could be argued that it is in fact about to be devoured by approaches taken over from the social and antural sciences. By discussing some features that through the last 150 years have been seen as a typical for a humanistic methodology, and a couple of more idiosyncratic features, the author aims to initiate a discussion whether a humanistic study of religion is obsolete, or if it still is something wort preserving and developing. The arguments are supported by examples taken from the 19th century American Christian-socialist fraternity The Noble and Holy Order of the Knights of Labor.

    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”.

    Religion and Politics under Capitalism: A Humanistic Approach to the Terminology2019Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book relates some of the major trends within religion and politics to offer a historical framework with which to assess their interactions and a point of departure for studies to come. The study of the interrelationship between contemporary religious practice and modern politics is divided between several scholarly disciplines, all embracing different terminologies as well as multiple theoretical and philosophical premises. Such diversity of perspectives is to be welcomed, but it can inhibit the ability of academics to form a cohesive and coherent dialogue around the subject.

    While critically assessing the historic, sociological, political, theological and anthropological aspects of religion and politics, the book demonstrates the crucial importance of recognising the capitalist economy as the framework for understanding their dynamic relationship. Moreover, it claims that humanism is the proper lens through which to critically engage with religion in society and must be the favoured point of departure for any study within the field.

    This book offers a unique overarching viewpoint for of all these divergent scholarly trends and traditions. As such, it will be of significant use to academics in religious studies, political science, sociology and anthropology.

    Review of Lincoln's Gods and Demons, Priest and Scholars2013In: Method & Theory in the Study of Religion, ISSN 0943-3058, E-ISSN 1570-0682, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 168-177Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For the last decades, Bruce Lincoln has been a leading scholar within the field of the history of religions. His philological skills, historical accuracy and innovations on a concrete "low-theoretical" level as well as his critical approach toward theology and discourse of the religious elites and overall ethical commitment has been widely estimated. This review article aims to uncover some of the prerequisites for the ideology criticism that has been the hallmark of Lincoln's work and to discuss some alternative tracks to continue that tradition of scholarship.

    The humanistic study of religions: An obscure tradition illuminated by the ‘Knights of Labor’2015In: Temenos, ISSN 0497-1817, E-ISSN 2342-7256, Vol. 51, no 2, p. 227-256Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today ‘humanistic’ and ‘humanities’ are terms rarely used in discussions on methodology and epistemology within the study/history of religions. This article laments this state of affair and reminds the readers of same basic advantages of a humanistic study of religions in comparison to chiefly social scientific approaches to religion and culture. After an initial philosophical argument on the implications of ‘humanistic’, the article touches upon the significance of historical failures, utopianism, empathy and ‘the orectic’. These discussions take place against an analysis of the mythology and ritual life of the 19th century, American, socialist order The Knight of Labor.

    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.

    Tal om terror: Hur muslimer beskrivs av det indiska partiet Bharatiya Janata Party mellan 2008-20122013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I följande uppsats undersöks det hindunationalistiska partiet Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) och hur muslimer beskrivs av partiet efter bomb- och skjutattackerna i Mumbai 2008, fram till 2012. Huvudmaterialet för uppsatsen är publicerade tal från partiets hemsida, vilka analyseras utifrån en kritisk diskursanalys. I talen framgår en specifik terror-diskurs där terrorism uteslutande sammankopplas med islamistiska grupper och organisationer. Terrorism blir synonymt med islamistisk terrorism och terrorister blir uteslutande islamistiska terrorister.

    Hinduiska kvinnors upplevelser av arrangerade äktenskap: En forskningsöversikt2019Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study about Hindu women's experiences of arranged marriages. The study is based on previous research on women’s experiences. The purpose of this paper was to analyze the underlying factors that contribute to Hindu women experiencing that their mental health is affected by arranged marriages. The purpose was also to investigate how the women felt that the new legislation regulating of the dowry system has affected them regarding their relationship with the new family. The main purpose was to identify themes in women's experiences of arranged marriages and investigate connections between these themes.

     

    The result showed that women who live in arranged marriages are more frequently exposed to both physical and mental violence, and as a result outcome they often suffer from different kinds of mental illness. The papers result also showed that these women’s opinions about arranged marriages differ slightly depending on their life situation. For instance, whether they live in a city or on the countryside, or how conscious they are about people who have other opinions and perceptions than their own. This study also shows the importance of these women having a job outside their home, as it offers contact with people beyond their family, enables the women contribute financially to the family and in other ways affects the women’s situation positively.

    Den manliga bibliotekarien: Upplevelser av att arbeta inom ett kvinnointensivt yrke2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main focus in this bachelor thesis is directed at the male librarian. Our purpose is to investigate how male librarians experience working in a female dominated profession. We do this by interviewing six male librarians at two public libraries in the south of Sweden. With this thesis we want to further investigate how the male librarians percieve the uneven representation of gender in their line of work. We will also be looking at possible differences in treatment from the library users based on gender, and if the division of work duties differ based on gender. Lastly we will also be examining if the male librarians experience any perks or disadvantages based on their gender.

    In our investigation process we are using a theoretical framework. Which contains Judith Butlers theory of performativity and Hanna Westberg-Wohlgemuths dissertation about the sex marking process.

    The conclusion of this bachelor thesis is that male librarians do not generally experience the gender segregation as something that brings with it negative reactions based on their gender, but instead they recieve positive feedback and reactions from both colleagues and library users. They do however feel that men in the librarian profession can get perks when it comes to recrutation if the qualifications are equal between both applicants. When it comes to division of work duties the men feel like they are expected to know more about IT, while the childrens activites is charactarized as a female part of the workplace.

    "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.

    Sufismens mångsidighet: En forskningsöversikt2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to examine how Sufism is explained in textbooks for high school students in the subject religious studies 1 and 2. To do this I have also summarized research on Sufism in Sweden. This thesis is based on three questions: What does recent science says about the purpose of sufism, its proliferation and its practice in Sweden and globally. Is the description of sufism multifaceted or not? What do the textbooks say about sufism? Do textbooks give a multifaceted picture of sufism, or is it unilateral? The results show that Sufism is more multifaceted and deeper and plays a bigger role than is apparent in religious books for high school, although even textbooks show a variegated picture of Sufism. Postcolonial theory and the orientalism theory presented by Edward Said are used in this thesis.

    Den bildande bokcirkeln?: En studie om bibliotekariers och deltagares upplevelser av litterär bildning i cirkeln2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay examines the expression ”bildung” (”bildning” in Swedish) in relation to book circles. The essay argues that the definition of bildung is not constant. The essay puts the expression in different historical contexts. With empirical evidence, the meaning of the expression can be investigated. A survey has been conducted in the form of four qualitative interviews. The public libraries' goal of promoting interest in bildung can be examined by analyzing the reasoning of the informants. The purpose of the essay is to examine the circle participants' perception of literary bildung and the librarians' goals for literary bildung. The purpose is also to compare the librarians' goals with the circle participants' perception of bildung. A model extracted from Judith Langer's theories is used as the analytical method. The results show that literary bildung is something the participants experienced in that the circle helped them understand others and make things more human. It is also argued that the circle provides tools for them to define and redefine themselves and others. They have not experienced to the same extent that the circle helps them find themselves or that it challenges them intellectually.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    In this essay, I intend to argue that the concept of magic can be extended to cover an agent’s use of works of art to influence her perceptions of herself and of reality. More specifically, I intend to argue that works of art can be used to create, confirm, or affirm normative identities, that is, conceptions of ourselves as standing in a special relationship to certain norms and values. My argument will include contributions to the discussion of magic as well as agency in art made by Robin Collingwood, Ernst Gombrich, and Alfred Gell. I will conclude by providing some examples of how perceptually magic uses of art can function to form normative identities. I will also say something about how to morally evaluate such uses of art.

    Bortom missunnsamhetens etik: argument för ett rättighetsbaserat jämlikhetstänkande2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Är det rätt att förvägra ett barn fungerande hörsel, om ett annat barn inte har råd med operationen? Bör vi acceptera att vissa grupper undantas från generella lagar och regler, av kulturella skäl? Och vilken plikt har ett materiellt starkt väst att minska den globala ojämlikheten? 

    Få begrepp är så positivt laddade i Sverige som jämlikhet. Men vilken jämlikhet är det vi pratar om? I rapporten Bortom missunnsamhetens etik - argument för rättighetsbaserat jämlikhetstänkande urskiljer Per Bauhn, professor i praktisk filosofi vid Linnéuniversitetet, olika sätt att tolka begreppet och hittar ett som både är moraliskt försvarbart och politiskt användbart ur ett frihetligt perspektiv.

    Alltsedan David Humes påpekande att man inte utan vidare kan gå från ett ”är” till ett ”bör” – det vill säga, från en beskrivning till en norm eller värdering – har det inom filosofin funnits en stark skepsis mot att härleda slutsatser om vad vi bör göra utifrån antaganden om hur verkligheten (”naturen”) är beskaffad.

    Environmental Beauty and the Morality of Vandalism2018In: The International Journal of Social, Political, and Community Agendas in the Arts, ISSN 2326-9960, E-ISSN 2327-2104, Vol. 13, no 3, p. 27-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I intend to develop and defend an argument claiming that the intentional vandalizing of an environment experienced by other people as beautiful implies a violation of these people’s human right to well-being. My argument presupposes that vandalist attacks on environmental beauty can detract from human well-being in two different ways. First, such attacks will undermine the self-esteem of people who have come to identify with their environment. Second, vandalist attacks will undermine people’s sense of living in a well-ordered community and of being safe and secure. Hence, assuming that there is at least a prima facie and negative human right to well-being (that is, a right not to have one’s well-being arbitrarily interfered with), acts of vandalism are prima facie morally wrong. That acts of vandalism are prima facie morally wrong does not exclude the possibility that they might sometimes still be justified, as when monuments dedicated to oppressive rulers are torn down. However, to the extent that a democratic decision procedure is available, decisions about public aesthetics should be made by the community as a whole, not by individuals acting on their own initiative. Sometimes it is argued that persons who vandalize have legitimate grievances against their society and that their acts of vandalizations should be understood as a justified protest against marginalization and alienation. However, this account does not apply to all vandals; moreover, even when it does apply, the morally preferred solution to resentful acts of vandalism should not be to condone these acts, but rather to remove those background conditions of marginalization and alienation that characterize their agents.

    För den som vill spekulera kring det offentliga samtalets framtid kan det vara fruktbart att börja med att klargöra vad man menar med termen ”offentligt samtal”.

    Islamism, multikulturalism och folkhemsanpassning: Man kan inte jämka med idéer som är oförenliga med frihet2017In: Kvartal, ISSN 2002-6269, Vol. 1Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Politiska eftergifter till islamism har sin bakgrund i folkhemstanken om jämlikhet. Men jämlikhet mellan kulturer tycks bli viktigare än jämlikhet inom kulturer. Om vi som samhälle menar allvar med rätten till frihet, måste vi också i praktik och politik försvara denna rätt mot frihetsfientliga religiösa övertygelser, skriver Per Bauhn, professor i praktisk filosofi.

    Normative Identity2017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Normative Identity is about how we define ourselves and others in terms of our ideas about the good and the right. Conflict as well as cooperation spring from our normative identity. Terrorists as well as social reformers find meaning and justification for their actions in their beliefs about whom and what they are and should be. But normative identities are not immune to rational criticism. This book argues that we should try to develop for ourselves a complex normative identity, based on the values of truth, justice, and beauty and consistent with the requirements of rational agency. Per Bauhn develops distinct but interrelated themes in moral philosophy to offer a new understanding of the relation between identity, values, meaning and agency. Ultimately he outlines a normative identity that is both rationally justified and can function as a source of meaning and motivation.
