    Stenålderns schamaner: En studie om gudars ursprung och världens fornkulturella tro2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this work, you get drawn into a different and distant world than the one we are usedto. You get to know what shamanism is, in a basic and understandable way, easy to lookupon for a newcomer to this gigantic subject. The world of raging spirits and meddlingshamans with the belief of three worlds where spirits roam will be compared toreligions that we might know better, with big focus on the Aesir Faith. Oden and otherwell-known characters from this belief are in a historical way looked upon and relatedto beliefs, storys and findings.The archaic belief of the humans are intriguing and exciting, and I hope you find outthat yourself, when you dig in to this essay

    100 år på havets botten: En jämförande tidningsstudie om minnet av Titanickatastrofen 19122014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to see how the centenary of the Titanic disaster is observed in the cities Belfast, Southampton and Halifax. It also contains a Swedish perspective to the event. There is a part of the thesis which is focused on an analysis of what memorials and memories mean to the disaster and the survival of the very same. The main sources of the thesis have mostly been internet editions of newspapers from the cities mentioned above, but also the paper editions of two of the biggest Swedish newspapers. An analysis of these sources shows that the memory of the Titanic, and foremost its passengers and crew is still alive. The perished were honoured at the commemorations through denudations of new memorials and descendants who paid their respects. The analysis also shows that the memory of the Titanic and the identity it created are important elements, primarily in Southampton and Belfast. These two cities embrace their Titanic heritage by exhibitions, both permanent and temporary ones. The conclusion of the analysis is that the memories of the Titanic are observed in different ways depending of which city it is. Belfast is a lot about remembering the construction; Southampton remembers the departure and Halifax focus on the perished, although, all three cities honour the catastrophe and the victims. No matter how the centenary is respected, one can easily notice that the Titanic is remembered; the question now is if the ship of dreams is immortal or if the disaster one day will fade to oblivion?

    För folket, för framtiden: En studie om debatten i riksdagen och medias skildring av införandet av Rasbiologiska institutet 19212017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the debate in the Swedish parliament (Riksdag) and the depiction of the newspapers at the time of the imposition of the Swedish state institute of racial biology in 1921. The thesis also aims to investigate what arguments were used for and against the institute and if the depictions of the newspapers were any different depending of their political standpoints. The investigation is based on material from three national newspapers, a government bill, and the protocol from the debates in the riksdag. The theoretical approach is based on phenomenology and the approach of history of mentalities, in order to see the 1920’s norms and attitudes in the right way. The conclusion of the thesis is that the debate was almost non-existent, both in the newspaper and in the political space. The main argument for an institute was the protection of the Swedish race, whereof the main argument against a state institute were financial and the approach that the institute could be integrated with an already existing department of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. The newspapers were quite silent about all this as well and only published the decisions from the riksdag. However, one of them also published an exchange of opinions between Herman Lundborg and C G Santesson, whose debate comprised arguments of the organisation of the institute. The norms and attitudes were found to be more about science and slightly about nationalism, whereas what we nowadays call racism seemed to not be included at all.

    Omaka män: En studie i Buddy Cop genrens framställning av män av olika etnicitet och dess utveckling i Hollywood och Europa från 1980-talet till 2010-talet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is a qualitative essay focusing on the way men of different ethnical backgrounds are portrayed in recent movies in the Buddy Cop film genre. The purpose of this essay is to investigate whether this type of portrayal in this genre has changed since the 1980s, when the interracial Buddy Cop movie became popular. Furthermore, the essay also focuses on one Hollywood produced movie and one European, in order to detect whether these changes have occurred outside of Hollywood. The movies that have been used for this essay are Lethal Weapon, 2 Guns and The Guard. Lethal Weapon is used as a template for the relationship between the characters. The two other movies have been chosen since they are both quite recent, and one of them is produced in Hollywood whilst the other one is European. Some differences were identified between the films which shows how the genre has changed in Hollywood and in Europe. In the American 2 Guns, the relationship between the two main characters have become more equal, where both characters are physically equals. Furthermore the black character has taken on several roles of a typical white character, such as being rebellious and sexual. The Guard shows the same sort of relationship between its two main characters as in Lethal Weapon, where the black man is asexual and civilized, whilst the white character is rebellious. The biggest change in The Guard is that both characters are not very physical. The white character shows the major changes due to the fact that he is no longer a young, muscular man, but instead middle aged and slightly overweight.

    Nationell identitet i populärhistoriska böcker för barn mellan 1962 och 19932018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine how national identity is expressed in popular history books for children. The source material consists of five popular history books from between 1962 and 1993. The books have been analysed using the method of conceptual history. This method is based on the assumption that language will always reflect the cultural, political and social world, which is why it's well suited for an analysis of the presence of an idea (the nation) in text. The chosen concept for this study is "the Swedes". The concept's synonyms, opposites and associated words are identifed. This is followed by a discussion based on the theoretical framework and historical background. The essay concludes that expressions of national identity are present in all five books, but in different forms and to varying degrees.

    Tidigmesolitikum på Södertörn.: Mesolitiska pionjärers ankomst och utveckling i skärgården på Södertörn2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay you will be reading and learing about the early Mesolithic from 8000 BC-6000 BC in the archipelago area of Södertörn, east central Sweden. The focus is on the Mesolithic pioneers and how they managed to adapt to their surroundings. To be able to investigate the area I have used a qualitative method which above all includes usage of literature.  

    The purpose of the essay is to get a better understanding of how people used to live during the Mesolithic and also try to understand how and why they did things. For example why they moved from the mainland to the peninsula in the first place.

    Foráneos y arraigados: Migración, inclusión y exclusión social de neerlandeses y alemanes en Nueva España, 1560-16502016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [es]

    Este trabajo estudia la evolución y el desarrollo de la comunidad neerlandesa y alemana que formó parte de la sociedad del virreinato de la Nueva España entre 1560 y 1650. Trata sobre las formas de inclusión y exclusión social, tanto al interior del grupo como con los otros agentes sociales en las relaciones verticales y horizontales a su alrededor. Es un trabajo que analiza la migración de larga distancia entre el norte de Europa y América, la formación de cadenas migratorias y el impacto social y económico de estos movimientos de pequeña escala para las sociedades locales y en el conjunto de la monarquía. En la base de todo lo anterior, esta tesis busca ampliar el conocimiento sobre la extensión indiana de los vínculos de interrelación y dependencia, de los intereses comunes, la colaboración y de los conflictos de las comunidades de septentrionales dentro de las redes sociales que componían el complejo entramado multicultural de la Monarquía Hispánica.

    La migración de europeos septentrionales a la Nueva España a través de los documentos inquisitoriales a finales del siglo XVI y principios del siglo XVII2007In: Incognitus. Avisos y legajos del Nuevo Mundo / [ed] Fernando Navarro Antolín, Universidad de Huelva , 2007Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [es]

    La migración de europeos no españoles a las Indias tuvo un carácter clandestino en la mayoría de los casos, lo cual dificulta la localización de información sobre los inmigrantes en los archivos. Esto no significa que la empresa sea imposible; contamos ya con un número importante de investigaciones sobre portugueses en la América colonial por su presencia indiscutible en la vida política, económica y social de los territorios ultramarinos. El conocimiento sobre la experiencia de las otras naciones, sin embargo, se encuentra todavía muy fraccionado. En este trabajo, presentaremos algunas líneas generales sobre la migración y presencia de extranjeros provenientes del norte de Europa en el virreinato de la Nueva España a finales del siglo XVI y principios del XVII. Nuestro trabajo se encuentra dividido en dos partes. En la primera, hacemos un recorrido por las disposiciones reales en materia de extranjeros y en las acciones que a partir de ellas siguieron los virreyes novohispanos entre 1591 y 1620 para contener la llegada y permanencia de estos hombres en el virreinato. En la segunda, trazaremos algunas líneas generales sobre la migración de europeos septentrionales en la Nueva España a través de los relatos de vida contenidos en veintitrés procesos seguidos por el Santo Oficio de México contra presuntos protestantes de origen flamenco, neerlandés y alemán entre 1597 y 16013. Buscamos así mostrar el abismo existente entre el discurso y las medidas oficiales y la experiencia migratoria de los foráneos.

    Las composiciones de extranjeros en la Nueva España, 1595–17002011In: Cuadernos de Historia Moderna, ISSN 0214-4018, E-ISSN 1988-2475, Vol. 10, p. 177-193Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [es]

    Al encontrarse con una hacienda exhausta a principios de la década de 1590, Felipe II buscó obtener recursos económicos por distintos arbitrios extraordinarios en los virreinatos americanos. Uno de ellos fue la composición de extranjeros. La composición ha sido entendida en términos de legalización y regularización de ilegales en las Indias. Este artículo propone que era una penalización que formaba parte de un proceso más amplio por el cual el rey administraba su gracia. Se analiza su origen, las transformaciones, los problemas y las soluciones que los servidores reales encontraron para su aplicación, así como la recepción y significado que tuvieron entre la población extranjera en la Nueva España entre 1595 y 1694.

    DATA Browser 06: Executing Practices2017Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This collection brings together artists, curators, programmers, theorists and heavy internet browsers whose practices make critical intervention into the broad concept of execution. It draws attention to their political strategies, asking: who and what is involved with those practices, and for whom or what are these practices performed, and how? From the contestable politics of emoji modifier mechanisms and micro-temporalities of computational processes to genomic exploitation and the curating of digital content, the chapters account for gendered, racialised, spatial, violent, erotic, artistic and other embedded forms of execution. Together they highlight a range of ways in which execution emerges and how it participates within networked forms of liveliness.

    Kampen om det förflutna: Kulturarvsdiskussioner i museidebatten 2016-20172018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay studies the Swedish museum debate during 2016–2017, regarding the display of history. The sources analysed here that represent the debate are the Swedish Govenment’s Proposition on Cultural Heritage Politics (Regeringens proposition 2016/17:116), the Museum Investigation (Ny Museipolitik 2015) and articles from Swedish daily newspapers. The essay uses Laurajane Smith’s work (Uses of Heritage 2006) on Authorized and Subaltern Heritage Discourses, as well as methods for argument analysis and construction of the Heritage node.

    The essay concludes that the Government’s Proposition is more closely tied to a Subaltern Heritage Discourse, while the Investigation lies somewhere in between both discourses, and the newspaper articles adhere to an Authorized Heritage Discourse. The Proposition construct the Heritage node in an open, multiculturalistic way that also focus on relevancy for today’s society and stresses the importance of the experience of the visit. The Investigation focus on the special role of the museum professionals, and also believes in a balance between traditional knowledge-based exhibitions and experience-based ones. The authors of the articles see the heritage as under threat from Government Politics, where knowledge and tradition is being replaced by norm criticism and multiculturalism.

    Diplomati underifrån: En studie av maktrelationer mellan Sverige och Alger 1729-1830 utifrån handelsmännens roll och funktion i Medelhavets politiska och handelsinriktade diplomati: med utgångspunkt i en litteraturgranskning och en pilotstudie av ett begränsat källmaterial.2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is an attempt to investigate the relations of power between Sweden and the North African state of Algiers during the 18th century with small and intermediary agents as merchants and their role in the political and tradeoriented diplomacy practised in the Mediterranean Sea as point of departure. It is also an attempt to try and develop the understanding of this lesser investigated subject. Furthermore, it is an attempt to survey what historical documents are available on the subject of my study and the perspective adherent to it.

    The problem in this study are the relations of power between Sweden and the North African state of Algiers during the 18th century with small and intermediary agents as merchants and their role in the political and tradeoriented diplomacy practised in the Mediterranean as point of departure.The method used is a manuscriptanalysis with a historical character, a method with which historical documents, litterature and previous research are analyzed and interpreted. The source material used are the written documents of consul Georg Logie to the Board of Trade (Kommerskollegium).1

    In the first chapter of the study it is stated that there is little evidence in the material, literature and previous research for small agents such as merchantmen and their role in the diplomacy and relations between states as well as in the international context created by states, but also the possibility that the merchants had a potential role in the diplomacy and relations between states as well as in the international context created and constituted by states.

    In the second chapter of the study it is stated that based upon relevant information obtained in a pilot study there is little evidence in the material with regards to an essay and the time limit it has in relation to an archive and the amount of material it possesses.The possibility that small agents as the merchants potentially had room to act in the international context created and constituted by states is also put forward here. The possibility that it became beneficial for agents as merchantmen to act is put forward in the third chapter. The problem of studying relations between states setting from small and intermediary agents is probably due to a perspective in which trade is defined and seen as a collective phenomenon and merchants is defined as a collective.

    1 The equivalent in today's society would be along the lines of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs., my note.

    Levels of Narrativity in Scandinavian Bronze Age Petroglyphs2019In: Cambridge Archaeological Journal, ISSN 0959-7743, E-ISSN 1474-0540, Vol. 29, no 3, p. 497-516Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Europe, Scandinavia holds the largest concentration of rock art (i.e. petroglyphs), created c. 5000-first century BC, many of them showing figurative and seemingly narrative representations. In this paper, we will discuss possible narratological approaches applied to these images. We might reasonably distinguish between three levels of pictorial narrativity: representations of (i) single events, understood as the transition from one state of affairs to another, usually involving (groups of) agents interacting; (ii) stories, e.g. particular sequences of related events that are situated in the past and retold for e.g. ideological or religious purposes; and (iii) by implication, master-narratives deeply embedded in a culture, which provide and consolidate cosmological explanations and social structures. Some concrete examples of petroglyphs will be presented and analysed from narratological and iconographical perspectives. We will as a point of departure focus on (i), i.e. single events, though we shall also further consider the possibility of narrative interpretations according to (ii) and (iii).

    Slaget vid Tollense: Professionella krigare i bronsålderns Nordeuropa2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    3200 years ago a massive battle took place at the river Tollense in MecklenburgVorpommern, Germany, possibly involving thousands of people. 130 victims have been found so far. Several show signs of former violence. Axes, wooden clubs, knives and a vast number of arrowheads have been found among the human skeletal remains. According to isotope analyses on tooth enamel from human remains at the site, a considerable amount of the victims did not originate from the local area. The isotope analyses divided the victims into two major groups, one local and the other probably originating from Central Europe. In other words, the battlefield of the Tollense were not fought by local farmers and craftsmen. This, together with the extent of the battle, the weapon finds and traumata on the human remains, has led archaeologists to assume that the battle was fought by professional warriors. If this is true, the battlefield of the Tollense would be the first of its kind in the Northern European Bronze Age.

    Sammanfattning

    Uppsatsen diskuterar omfattningen och karaktären av slaget vid floden Tollense som utspelade sig för 3200 år sedan i vad som idag är Nordtyskland. Slagfältet har uppmärksammats för att vara den första konflikten med professionella krigare i bronsålderns Nordeuropa. Tidigare forskning om ämnet saknar en konsekvent definition av begreppet professionell krigare. För att avgöra om det var professionella krigare som stred vid Tollense definierar uppsatsen begreppet utifrån teoretiska perspektiv såsom antropologiska klassifikationer av hövdingadömen, krigare och soldater, men också genom att belysa kontaktnätverken och den långväga handel som växte fram under bronsåldern. Omfattningen och karaktären av slaget vid Tollense beskrivs utifrån hur många människor som deltog på slagfältet samt vilka arkeologiska fynd som talar för huruvida de var professionella krigare och inte lokala bönder och hantverkare som drabbade samman. Uppsatsen är en klassisk litteraturstudie. Utgrävningarna vid Tollense pågår i skrivande stund, vilket innebär att det inte finns någon slutpublikation med färdigställda resultat. För att besvara frågeställningarna om antalet deltagare i konflikten samt huruvida de var professionella krigare eller inte, redogör uppsatsen för analyser av de mänskliga kvarlevorna som återfunnits vid Tollense och vapnen som användes på slagfältet. Avslutningsvis ger uppsatsen en personlig tolkning av vad fyndmaterialet säger om hur många människor som var involverade i konflikten och vad som talar för att de var professionella krigare. Diskussionen lyfter fram hövdingadömen som centraliserade och hierarkiska samhällsstrukturer och hur detta möjliggör organiserad krigföring.

    Skolans idrottsundervisning – från prestation till deltagande: - En historisk jämförelse mellan Lgr 80 och Lpo 94 för de senare åren ur ett lärarperspektiv2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med vår studie är att jämföra Lgr 80 med Lpo 94 för att undersöka förekommande förändringar mellan dessa reformer i idrottsundervisningen i en historisk process fram till idag. Studien grundas på ett socialhistoriskt perspektiv, där idrottslärares erfarenheter kring arbetslivet i skolans verksamhet har upplevts under de senaste 30 åren. Studien är därmed avgränsad till ett lärarperspektiv.

    Bakgrunden till denna studie är vårt intresse för de historiska förändringsprocesser som sker i samhällen och så även i skolans verksamhet med reformer. Vad reformerna har fått för genomslagskraft och konsekvenser i dagens skola och för lärarrollen med fokus på ämnet idrott och hälsa är vårt undersökningsområde. Inför vårt kommande yrke ger denna intressestudie oss förhoppningsvis en ökad förståelse och medvetenhet kring varför skolan har utvecklats som den har gjort och vad det skapar och framkallar för typ av skeenden inom idrott och hälsas undervisning.

    Metoden vi har använt oss av är kvalitativ, då vi använt oss av öppna intervjuer. Urvalet har varit fyra lärare på två olika skolor.

    Vår teoretiska bakgrund behandlar begreppen normativ nivå som styrdokument och den praktiska nivån som skolans verksamhet med områden kring idrottsundervisningen och lärarrollen under förändring.

    I resultaten har vi fått fram att samverkan har skett tidigare i Lgr 80 men med Lpo 94 ökade den radikalt då det upprättades arbets- och ämneslag. Tid till ämnet idrott och hälsa har minskat men fler arbetsuppgifter har tillkommit för så som mer dokumentation, betygssamtal, sociala kontakten med elever och föräldrar. Lärarrollen och idrottsundervisningen har på så vis förändrats under denna tidsperiod.

    Resultaten av vår intervjustudie har visat att lärarna ansåg att det har blivit definitivt sämre efter att skolor decentraliserades från statligt till kommunalt ansvar. Ekonomiska resurser är det som styr och det är färre anställda lärare mot elevantal idag efter kommunaliseringen. Lärarna upplever problematik med kursplanens betygskriterier som är både svårtolkade men även svåra att uppnå för elever. Det har visat sig att lärarkåren fick väldigt lite fortbildning innan reformen 94 som gjorde att alla tolkade läroplanen olika. Lärarna uppnår goda resultat med eleverna i sin undervisning med liten marginal och det beror på god organisation och samverkan idrottslärare emellan.

    Tre oväntade fynd från Ottenby Kungsgård2008In: Urminne, ISSN 1650-8394, no 7Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents three somewhat unexpected finds made in connection to the excavation in 2004 of a Pitted Ware site at Ottenby Royal Manor on the southernmost part of Öland, Sweden. The first find to be treated here was identified during the excavation, and consists of an Early Medieval glass bead of Hungarian origin, of a type not previously documented from the Scandinavian area. The other two finds were identified during the osteological analysis; in the material from the 2004 excavation a Gannet (Sula Bassana) was identified, being the first of this species from a prehistoric context on Öland and the fifth find from the large islands in the Baltic Sea altogether. Secondly whilst analysing bones from the 1991 excavation at the site a previously unidentified human bone was identified.

    Abstract

    Gravfält och byar - En komparativ undersökning av sex gravfält från Värend. Gravefields and villages - A comparative analysis of sex gravefields from Värend.

    Abstract

     

    The basis that this study stands on, is that iron age-gravfields represents nearby village communities. The purpose of this study was to investigate if six gravefields within the old folkland Värend represent different villages, or does the six representative gravefield-villages only show dissimilarity in social differences that occurred within the villages?

     

    A comparative method analysis was used in this study, to help examine comparisons of the different grave types within the gravefields and the social phenomena that they reflect. To help the method further, old maps of the gravefields were used and field observations were made, to get a better picture in how the different grave types were placed and arranged within the gravefields and landscape.

     

    The results show that these six gravefields probably represents their own nearby villages, and many of the graves that occur within the different gravefields, are alike to each other, which show that these supposed representative gravefield-villages had similar grave traditions.

    The role of play objects and object play in human cognitive evolution and innovation2018In: Evolutionary anthropology (Print), ISSN 1060-1538, E-ISSN 1520-6505, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 46-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this contribution, we address a major puzzle in the evolution of human material culture: If matur-ing individuals just learn their parental generation’s material culture, then what is the origin of keyinnovations as documented in the archeological record? We approach this question by coupling alife-history model of the costs and benefits of experimentation with a niche-construction perspec-tive. Niche-construction theory suggests that the behavior of organisms and their modification ofthe world around them have important evolutionary ramifications by altering developmentalsettings and selection pressures. Part ofHomo sapiens’niche is the active provisioning of childrenwith play objects—sometimes functional miniatures of adult tools—and the encouragement ofobject play, such as playful knapping with stones. Our model suggests that salient material cultureinnovation may occur or be primed in a late childhood or adolescence sweet spot when cognitiveand physical abilities are sufficiently mature but before the full onset of the concerns and costsassociated with reproduction. We evaluate the model against a series of archeological cases andmake suggestions for future research.

    Abstract [en]

    Decapitated Vs. Stomach buried – A study of decapitated people and stomach placed people in Iron Age in Sweden and Denmark. This essay is about decapitated persons in graves and those buried on their stomach in the Iron Age in Sweden and Denmark. The analysis is to compare these graves by six perspectives; location of the grave, construction of the grave, grave goods, sex, age and interpretations of the grave. Out of this I found out if there are any different patterns of these graves, except that they are decapitated and places on their stomach. I compare between fifteen graves located on their stomach, nine decapitated graves, four graves that involve both and eight graves that do not contain any of it.

    Charlie don't surf!: En studie av det postkoloniala perspektivet i amerikanska Vietnamkrigsfilmer2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate six American Vietnam war films, and to study how western and oriental cultures are depicted from a postcolonial perspective. The descriptions of the Americans, the enemy and the South Vietnamese have been studied from this perspective. This is examined by drawing connections to theories and concepts such as semiotics and ideology as well as using methods such as discourse analysis, mise-en-scéne and film analysis. The study also investigates if there has been a change in the descriptions of the films when it comes to the postcolonial perspective. The research includes: The Green Berets, The Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now Redux, Platoon, Full Metal Jacket and We Were Soldiers.

    The comprehensive research question is: How are those involved in the war and their cultures depicted in relation to each other in the analysed films?

    The results clearly point out the common theme; west and east are each others opposites and the audience sympathises with the American soldiers at most times. In three of the movies the Americans are thoroughly good people, but in the other three films the picture is somewhat ambiguous since here the Americans are good and evil as well as rational and irrational. Concerning the enemy, they are frequently described as faceless, primitive and brutal in all films, except in We Were Soldiers where they occasionally are depicted as human beings with feelings. The South Vietnamese people are portrayed as faceless and primitive in the films as well, and when they are visible, they usually are portrayed as victims. It is obvious that the postcolonial mirror exists in the discourse of all the analysed films, and that the ideological message with the western world as dominant and more civilised is reproduced. Furthermore, both connotations and mise-en-scéne are used to convey and strengthen the postcolonial message. The changes in the films occur above all within the Americans. To begin with, they are associated as good and next they become less good. Another example of change is that we get glimpses of how the enemy thinks and feels.

    Abstract [en]

    Rosengren, Anna, 2006: Samiska kvinnor och osynlig historia. En komparativ studie av svenskar och samer vid 1600-talstinget. (Saami Women and Invisible Histories. A Comparative Study of Swedes and Saamis in Court during the 17th Century.)

    The purpose of the paper is to gain new knowledge about Saami women in the 17th century using court protocols in the Luleå and Torneå Lappmarks, supplemented by secondary sources.

    Saami women did not write their own history, nor did Saami men. Information available about Saami is written by male representatives of the Swedish crown and church. The scholarly challenge therefore lies in reconstructing history about a group of people from meagre sources written by an altogether different group. To this end, the postcolonial research field was chosen as a theoretical framework as it provides us with important issues suitable for this paper. Among these issues we find the view that history of colonised people written by the coloniser is biased and incomplete, that we should be prepared to discover not one but several different histories as well as signs of resistance. As for research on women, I use the concept of dynamic hierarchies by which should be understood that the combination of variables such as age, sex, socio-economic standing and cultural background determine the degree of influence that a person will have.

    Together with the theoretical framework, the substantial empirical material and methodological considerations are of great importance for this paper. Close to 300 court cases from the Lappmarks have been analysed. In addition, a quantitative and qualitative study was made including a comparison with two regions in Sweden in order to tell whether the activity of Saami women in court differed from that of other women.

    The results are of three kinds. First, it identifies and explains differences in the situation of Saami and Swedish women. Second, it indicates that Saami history of the 17th century is less homogeneous than has hitherto been assumed and furthermore contained several elements of resistance. As a third feature, it suggests that today’s knowledge of Saami in the 17th century is based on parts of Saami society, rather than the society as a whole, due to methodological deficiencies in the historical material.

    Among differences between Saami and Swedish women, we find the tremendous importance of personal property in the Lappmarks, as opposed to ownership of land in Sweden. Also, the stigma that often followed on premarital sexual intercourse for women in Sweden did not necessarily occur to Saami women. This difference has previously been identified by other scholars, and the hypothesis brought forward here is a strategy to avoid inbreeding in combination with considerably stronger Saami dynasties. Somewhat surprisingly, the yearly number of sexual crime per capita was not necessarily higher in the Lappmarks than in the Swedish investigations, indicating that the repression of Saami was not more severe than in Sweden. I furthermore find evidence of a strong socio-economic stratification among the Saami, supporting the view of dynamic hierarchies.

    The situation and development in the two Lappmarks were not homogeneous. In Luleå Lappmark, the level of social crime, noticeably sexual crime, was considerably higher and the level of economic transactions considerably lower, than in Torneå Lappmark. On an overall level, the general trend towards higher levels of economic transactions took place on only a very modest scale in the Lappmarks compared to Sweden and Europe at large during the 17th century. As for resistance, we find evidence of what I call a “walk-the-walk strategy”, i.e. Saami using to their advantage regulations imposed on them by Swedes, along with other kinds of strategies.

    Lastly, I show that the methodology used by 17th century source writers is often flawed because Swedish informants and encounters with wealthy reindeer breeding Saami men have to a large extent provided the information for the texts, rather than representatives from the whole Saami population. This is something that to date has been overlooked by many scholars. A challenge for future research is therefore to reconstruct the history of other, less visible, Saami groups as well.

    The boat-burials in Scandinavia presents several rich findings in the form of boats, possession and their owners. These boat-burials are reviewed in this work through a lens of maritime archaeology, to connect the possible roles held by the boat itself in context with the placement and nature of the burial gifts deposited around and inside the vessel. The burial grounds in Vendel, Valsgärde, Tuna I Badelunda, Ultuna and Old Uppsala are presented to compare and create context between findings to define a common tradition and cosmology involving the boat-burials in question.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The performance of elder care, both public efforts and family-based, in two socio-economically very different settings are examined. The author argues that there were connections between an area’s socio-economic structure and the way elder care was organized. Until 1920 elder care was governed by traditional patriarchal values found in both areas. Elderly people with some resources could more easily obtain public support than those who had nothing. Also a gender dimension was visible as men but not women were allowed reproductive support. Women had to work because of their class position, not because of their sex. The growing welfare state blurred the distinction between the private and the public sphere as old age security shifted from a family duty to a civil right. This shift, linked to democratization, occurred more slowly in the region of landless tenants and farm workers, which also were the more patriarchal dominated area.

    Tro på herren, hjälp din nästa och lita inte på indianen: Formandet av ett svenskt-amerikanskt kollektivt minne i efterdyningarna av Dakotakonflikten 18622011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate how the Dakota conflict in 1862 affected the Swedish immigrants in Minnesota and how the collective memory was shaped in that particular group of people. To examine the contents of the collective memory this essay uses the theories of Halbwachs on collective memory as well as Orm Øverlands theories on creating an identity and ethnic memory in USA since the concepts of collective memory and the process of creating an identity is connected on a basic level. The essay compares the collective memory created by the Swedish-Americans with the collective memories of the Dakota Indians and finds indications that both ethnic groups have a highly traumatized memory of the conflict. However the difference between the two groups is that the Indians have both positive and negative memories of the conflict while the Swedish-Americans only have negative memories. Furthermore the essay finds that the fear of Indians that was present in the Swedish-American ethnic groups can be traced back to events of the Dakota Conflict. The reports published in Hemlandet, a newspaper on Swedish, have furthermore added to the, in many cases, unmotivated fear of Indians.

    Historieundervisning och digital teknik: Hur historielärare arbetar med digital teknik, historiemedvetande och historisk empati inom undervisningen under 2011.2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay takes its starting point in the research on digital technology and theories on learning to apply the research on history teaching. The theories on learning from Illeris and Selander are used to find out how the digital technology should be used in upper secondary school, since there is no extensive research on how the new technology should be used in upper secondary school. From that point the essay’s primary goal is to investigate how teachers use digital technology, if they choose a particular study field while working with the technology. Furthermore it investigates whether or not the technology is an appropriate mode of operation when developing abilities such as historical consciousness and historical empathy. This is made by reviewing 100 lesson plans on lektion.se which are categorized within the time period they teach, to which extent they use technology and if they develop historical consciousness and empathy. Two of these lesson plans are also reviewed on a closer extent to investigate how they work with technology and historical consciousness and empathy. Furthermore five interviews have been made with working teachers around Sweden to investigate how they work with digital technology in particular and also with historical consciousness and historical empathy. There are four results of this essay, that there is a tendency in the scope of the survey to use digital technology when teaching. This is made by using varied modes of teaching and varied types of technology. Furthermore the essay shows that when using digital technology, it is preferred to use group projects as a work method. While using a more advanced approach to the technology teachers tend to favor working with modern history. The last result of the essay is that digital technology is a good work method when the teacher want’s to develop historical empathy and historical consciousness.

    Abstract [en]

    Due to the standards and values that characterized our society through history women have had a hidden place in the historiography. By a qualitative media analysis these values have been analysed to find out how   women with the right to vote moved the values and how they were described in newspapers and magazines.  The study is from Judith Butlers interpretation of how the gender perspective went through a process of normalization. The linguistic dimension of women has been analysed for two reasons firstly to discover how women are described as political subjects in 1911 and 1921 and how this can have affected perceptions of gender and value.  In my study I came to the conclusion that their political interests and achievements most often were overshadowed because of their gender 1911 more than 1921.  During 1921 it was still more important that women were women than men were men. Secondly I have studied how the women through magazines tried to tone down the fact that they were ground breakers. The study resulted in that the women often described their female characteristics in relation to their political relevance to give the reader the impression that femininity and politics belong together. These phenomena showed up more often in magazines than newspapers and were interpreted as these connections between femininity and politics were a part woman’s leverage to get the right to vote. The study contributes to the research of women’s history and a wider understanding for how language and journalism can contribute to perceptions of genus.

    Abstract [en]

    The UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University, in collaboration with the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM), ICOMOS International, ICOMOS Netherlands, and the City of Amsterdam, organizied an ICOMOS University Forum held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, 11-14 June 2019. The Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and  Material Culture (AHM) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) hosted the meeting, which aimed at  promoting thinking and planning the future in heritage management. The main questions that were discussed during the meeting were: How do we perceive of the future? Which future and future generations do heritage professionals work for? What heritage will be needed in the future (and how do we know)? How can we build capacity in future thinking among heritage professionals worldwide?

    The conference participants included scholars and heritage managers, both young and established, from different parts of the world. All in all, the ICOMOS University Forum brought together about 50 global heritage specialists from academia and professional practice, representing not only many European countries but also Australia, Brazil, China, India, Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, Singapore, Syria, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey and the USA. During the meeting, participants enriched the discussion with their multicultural and multidisciplinary expertise.

    Applying cartosemiotics to rock art: An example from Aspeberget, Sweden2019In: Social Semiotics, ISSN 1035-0330, E-ISSN 1470-1219, Vol. 29, no 4, p. 543-556Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to shed new light on the petroglyphs found at the site of Aspeberget 12 at the World Heritage site of Tanum, Sweden, from a semiotic perspective. We demonstrate the semiotics of power inherent in the arrangement of the petroglyphs. We start by describing the site in an archaeological way, in order to give an overview of the empirical material used in this case study. Against the backdrop of the overview, we introduce our analytical tools with reference to cartosemiotics, cultural semiotics and, Charles Sanders Peirce’s theory of signs. We suggest, in a tentative conclusion, that Aspeberget 12, as a type of“map”, displays a clear“Ego-culture”and a possible journey. We also suggest that the visual narratives at Aspeberget 12 represent the authority of the Ego-culture and its development. Details of thefigurative images such as ships, axes and spears might have been displayed as markers of the high technological standard of the Ego-culture, and thus of power.

    Kamp emot kvalen: En studie om hur Socialdemokraterna och SSU agerat mot nazism, fascism och kommunism i Växjö 1932-19452017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    2017 marks the hundred year anniversary since the Social Democratic party was split in two in 1917, when the youth party, as well as several leftish socialistic members, formed the Communist party. In the aftermath of the first world war communism rose in Sweden, Spain and Germany. Eventually, fascism and nazism began to rise as a political power as well. These ideologies put the Swedish Social democratic party at stake. This essay has focused on how the local Social democrats acted at a local level, when it came to these political powers. Elements of conflict and consensus, as well as class formation are lifted to find out how Växjö’s Social democrats reacted to communism, nazism and fascism. The result showed that the reaction was almost completely non-violent, although still in opposition. Attempts were made to cooperate with the local communists, with varied success. They united against fascism and to aid them under fascist oppression. The class formation were partly unitary as of this, but mostly fragmented, when the communists were looked at as dividers and Moscow agents with revolutionary goals. This did not work out with the Social democratic reformist agenda, why the communist was widely condemned in 1939. The political right often criticised the Social democrats for their communist encounters. As to this the local Social democratic press did not trust the bourgeoisie to maintain the democracy if they were given the chance to overthrow the Social democratic government with help from the fascists.

    När Lammhult blev huvudort: En studie om när Aneboda , Asa och Bergs kommuner blev Lammhults storkommun2016Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In order to reach the social democratic vision of the welfare society, the old communities based on parishes needed to become bigger entities. Hence, the Swedish government issued a reform to shape new, bigger communities that would be able to guarantee the citizens a part of the welfare. This reform shock the old identities all over Sweden, which led to certain amounts of conflict towards the state, within communities as well as between communities. This essay has focused on the implementation of the reform, where Aneboda, Asa and Bergs communities became one community - Lammhults. Issues regarding identity, centre and periphery, political culture, conflict and consensus are lifted in the process towards one, economically sound community. The result showed that the level of conflict varied among the different communities, where Aneboda fought the hardest to maintain their independence, as Asa and Berg tried to, without success, include Tolg into the new community. This was a conflict between the countryside and station society, where no-one wanted to change the old ways and cast aside the old identities.
