    Runstenarna i landskapet: En undersökning om placeringen av runstenarna i Tiohärad2015In: Futhark: International Journal of Runic Studies, ISSN 1892-0950, E-ISSN 1892-0950, no 5, p. 137-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To comprehend better the meaning of a runic monument as a complex phenomenon it is necessary to have knowledge of its original location in relation to the surrounding environment. Our knowledge of such initial locations varies. Some runestones still stand in the place where they were first erected. In other cases, the first placement is well documented even if the runestone has been moved or indeed lost; sometimes, however, the documentation indicates only a general placement. In several instances the original location is wholly unknown.

    There are eighty-two known runic monuments from the late Viking Age in an area called Tiohärad in southern Sweden. For twenty-nine of these only a secondary location, mostly in or near a church, is known. Some mention bridges and eleven are known to have been located near a passage of water (which presumably also indicates the presence of a road). At least sixteen more are found near a later road, and two of these mention a crossroad. Thirteen seem to have been found near farms or villages. In many cases, the monuments could have marked ancient boundaries. Of particular interest in these instances are the examples located at boundaries that not only border two farms, but also larger administrative areas. Of the fifty-two monuments with a known location, only eighteen have any connection to grave-fields.

    Den nya kvinnan: Retoriska drag i argumentering för rösträtt hos LKPR och Suffragetterna2018Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to study the similarities and differences in the rhetoric of the Swedish organisation” LKPR” and the English Suffragette’s. How they present their idea of the political vote for women, what kind of metaphors are used e.tc. The study is based on the voting women’s newspapers, as well as letters and a speech. The study is also supposed to discuss the various reasons why the militant methods and rhetoric in the democratization from the suffragette’s in England did not influence the voting women of Sweden in a more comprehensive way, and why Swedish activist did not use the militant methods. This has many complex explanations. The rhetoric of the suffragettes was far more militant and associated with the concept of war. In Sweden, it was more about motherhood, family and home, the Swedish activist did not embrace the militant methods of the suffragette’s. That’s partwise because of the concept of femininity, the fear of further conflicts, dependence on men etc. Even if the two organisations were distinctly different, one thing they shared was the concept of “a new kind of woman”. It was a woman who broke the social structures, gender structures and in some cases even laws to get what they wanted. It was a woman who no longer pleased with what they were assigned, but now looked for what they considered to be entitled to. It was a new type of woman who came to stay.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to identify which different character features the feebleminded persons were ascribed in the journals of health. The journals of health are taken from the county council archive of Kronoberg, and consider people who are born 1930, 1940 and 1955. Furthermore, this study investigates which adjectives these feebleminded persons were associated with, as well as if there was a difference between them. In order to reach the aim of the study, this study uses two theories together with a discourse analysis. The first theory is Erving Goffman’s ideas of stigma, whereas we use Michel Foucault’s theory of power as our second theory. The theory is about the relationship between power and knowledge, and how it is used as a form of social control through community institutions. The motives of stigma were that the feebleminded were seen as threats to society and the rest of the population. Thanks to our discourse analysis, the result was that the doctors mostly used a negative vocabular when they described all the different feebleminded persons in their journals of health. Additionally, this study also presents that the discourse of today differ from the discourse of 1930, 1940 and 1955.

    Produktion och arbete i den tredje industriella revolutionen: Tarkett i Ronneby 1970-20002004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main research questions for this local study of Tarkett AB, a floor manufacturer, are based on the central characteristics of the third industrial revolution: globalization, technological development, and organizational change. As a background to the local development and change towards the end of the twentieth century, I have chosen to emphasize, on the one hand, the increasing need of the industry for internationalization, rationalization, and productivity development after fordism and the demise of the regulated “real wages capitalism” in the middle of the 1970s, and, on the other, the work rights offensive of the labor movement in the 1970s and its continued struggle for economic and industrial authority. The method to analyze the essential traits of the organizational change process has aimed to construe a field of organizational change whose ideal types are based on taylorism, toyotism, flexible specialization, just-in-time, and lean production. Methods used to analyze change from the perspective of social structuration are also related to the theories of dynamic contradictory class locations, local hegemony, and gender. Apart from traditional source material and interviews, the study builds on the results from a study group consisting of a number of factory workers from Tarkett. Technological change and development (IT) of the work process on the factory floor has been analyzed as technological rationalization, quality development, work environment improvement, and as issues of gender relations and class positions at the work place. As regards the management process, leadership and control, centralization and decentralization concepts are vital. In matters concerning working conditions, including salaries, working hours, and job profiles (qualifications required for employment) are central. The management process was subject to changes that entailed deviations from the principles of traditional tayloristic management philosophy. Instead a participant change strategy implemented decentralized leadership functions in the shape of management by objectives via autonomous groups according to principles of ”responsible autonomy”. The investigation shows that computer-aided centralized control functions, competence improvement, and intensified ideological control worked together to change the management process. Decentralization of responsibility, the integration of white-collar like duties, the general competence development, and the higher demands on job qualifications, combined to render workers’ class locations more contradictory. This, together with ideological control and change, contributed to consolidate local hegemony.

    Burial and ritual2018In: The International Encyclopedia of Biological Anthropology / [ed] Wenda Trevathan, New York: John Wiley & Sons, 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Inhumation—more commonly referred to as burial—is one of the most common mortuary ritual treatments, viewed across the diversity of human cultures and throughout recent prehistoric and historical periods. Mortuary treatments are the techniques by which members of human societies ritually handle the bodily remains of the dead, as the living stage a meaningful transition to cope with the social and emotional impacts of death and loss (Nilsson Stutz 2003). Primary burial—that is, inhumation of the whole cadaver—can leave particularly recognizable taphonomic signatures, and thus, it may be reliably distinguished from unintentional disturbance and mixing (Duday 2009; Nilsson Stutz 2003). As such, Pleistocene‐age burial features provide evidence of the evolution of human ritualized behaviors. A comparative evolutionary perspective on human ritual can also clarify unique derived features of sociality, complex cognition, symbolism, language, and extended life history strategies in the hominins.

    Early Upper Paleolithic chronology in the Levant: new ABOx-SC accelerator mass spectrometry results from the Mughr el-Hamamah Site, Jordan2015In: Journal of Human Evolution, ISSN 0047-2484, E-ISSN 1095-8606, Vol. 85, p. 157-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Methodological developments and new paleoanthropological data remain jointly central to clarifying the timing and systemic interrelationships between the Middle-Upper Paleolithic (MP-UP) archaeological transition and the broadly contemporaneous anatomically modern human-archaic biological turnover. In the recently discovered cave site of Mughr el-Hamamah, Jordan, in situ flint artifacts comprise a diagnostic early Upper Paleolithic (EUP) assemblage. Unusually well-preserved charcoal from hearths and other anthropogenic features associated with the lithic material were subjected to acid-base-wet oxidation-stepped combustion (ABOx-SC) pretreatment. This article presents the ABOx-SC accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) radiocarbon dates on nine charcoal specimens from a single palimpsest occupation layer. Date calibration was carried out using the INTCAL13 radiocarbon calibration dataset. With the bulk of the material dating to 45-39 ka cal BP (thousands of years calibrated before present), the Mughr el-Hamamah lithic artifacts reveal important differences from penecontemporaneous sites in the region, documenting greater technological variability than previously known for this time frame in the Levant. The radiocarbon data from this EUP archaeological context highlight remaining challenges for increasing chronological precision in documenting the MP-UP transition.

    Towards a Post-Anthropocentric Speculative Archaeology (through Design): 2017In: Journal of Contemporary Archaeology, ISSN 2051-3429, E-ISSN 2051-3437, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 238-246Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As disciplines and practices archaeology and design stand in an interesting relationship to one another. Whereas it is the business of designers to construct material and, at times, immaterial universes that can sustain life (or, as we shall see, destroy life), it is the business of archaeologists, in the traditional sense of the word, to look at the remnants of those universes and the traces of those who populated them in order to understand the past and the ways in which it resonates in the present and in our conception of our possible futures.

    This leads us to pose the following question: If an intimate relationship can be located at the interstitial space between archaeology and design, what might happen if we were to construct transversal lines between and across these disciplines, and what concepts would be required for us to do so?

    Drawing upon the concept of the Anthropocene – a concept opening up to precisely such transdisciplinary and transversal approaches – this article explores the notion of a post-anthropocentric speculative archaeology interweaving a theoretical line of thought and a performative, fictive trajectory.

    Fyra historiska händelser i Östeuropa: En läromedelsanalys i svenska och serbiska läroböcker2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study about the literature used in the Swedish and the Serbian schools and whether there are any differences in the information given about four historical events given to scholars. The events are about how the first world war started, how the first world war ended, how the second world ended and lastly how Yugoslavia dissociated. The purpose of this study is to collect all the information and compare the Swedish with the textbooks from Serbia and lastly to analyze the differences. The questions at issue is what is written in the textbooks about the four historical events and what the differences are between the two counties. The conclusion to this study is that there is not as much differences between the two countries as expected. The Serbian textbooks are more cultural, and the Swedish textbooks are more from a political point of view. But they still talk about the same historical events, and even though some of the textbooks does not write as much as the others. There are more similarities than differences, for example is the information about the attack on Franz Ferdinand death in Sarajevo almost the same. The difference is the amount, the author, has chosen to write.

    Abstract [en]

    Labour migration to Sweden is analysed from a labour perspective. As regards theory, the thesis focuses on how class and ethnicity intersect in a capitalistic setting, but it also gives attention to gender and age as structural principles. The main purpose is to analyse migrants in Sweden as a party in the relationship between labour and capital, and to explore how the immigration and the active recruitment of workers in other countries affected and was affected by the relative strengths of the parties on the labour market, covering the period 1945–1952.

    The relationship between labour and capital, regarding migration-related issues, is analysed from above and below on both national and local level, and the thesis discerns how the state mediated between the parties. It examines the first encounters between foreign-born and native-born workers at shop-floor level, how these encounters affected the relationship between the trade union and the industrial management concerned, and explores how all this, in turn, affected the relationship between the national parties on the Swedish labour market. A structural perspective is combined with micro analyses of narratives from the actors involved, which opens up for a study of the history of society.

    Firstly, the thesis addresses the relationship between the Swedish Engineering Employers’ Association and the Swedish Metalworkers’ Union, and secondly it is a local workplace study, focusing on Svenska Stålpressnings AB in Olofström (the Swedish Steel Pressing Company). The more precise focus of attention is on war refugees from Estonia employed by the company in Olofström between 1945 and 1947, and on Estonians recruited directly from West German refugee camps in the early 1950s.

    The study reveals that the Metalworkers’ Union at first opposed labour recruitment abroad – at both national and local level –, but also how coincident interests developed between labour, capital and the state regarding labour immigration. An important finding is that the Metalworkers’ Union had great influence considering which companies would be allowed to recruit foreign-born workers, and that the trade union could direct the migrations to workplaces with acceptable staff policies.

    A fundamental research problem for the thesis is, furthermore, how social groups construct ethnic boundaries between “us” and “the others”. It is stressed that Estonians’ background experiences and social memories differed from those of the Swedish workers, and that these differences affected the outcomes of the first encounters. But it is also pointed out that the Estonian group was internally divided, with a basis in interwar Estonian political history and in disparate class backgrounds among the Estonians.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay deals with active labour recruitment from Yugoslavia to Sweden at the end of the 1960s and early 1970s. It is a case study of recruitments of foreign-born workers to one particular manufacturing industry. It focuses primarily on trade-union actions and strategies in connection with the recruitments, analysed in the light of the power relations within the corporatist Swedish labour market model. This approach illuminates how the Swedish labour market model dealt with an issue involving both conflicting and coincident interests between labour and capital, with the state as an intermediary. But the recruitments are also analysed from the recruited workers' points of view. The essay reveals great union influence in the process of labour recruitment, and suggests that the national Swedish labour market authority only approved as many work permits for non-Nordic workers as the trade union concerned accepted. This power, in combination with the shortage of workers, could be used by the unions as a forceful instrument in their struggle to transform working life according to their members' interests. Accordingly, the labour recruitments to Sweden were framed by the power relations and the corporative practices within the Swedish labour market model.

    Myten om Palme: En texttolkning av dokumentären Palme och dess skildring av det sociala minnet efter Olof Palme som norm eller anomali2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ”The myth of Palme- a textual analysis of the documentary Palme and its description of the social memory of Olof Palme as a norm or anomaly” by Emma Svanström aims to analyze how the directors of the documentary Palme choose to present Olof Palme to the future generations. Also the goal is to find out if their version presents Palme as a person who followed the norms or was divergent.

    To this purpose the thesis use textual analysis combined with a quantitative method in search of which persons the directors give the right to form the myth of Palme and which keywords they use to do describe him. To view the film as a social memory in the transformation to a myth the thesis use Jan Assmans theory of social memory and to find out if the documentary describes Palme as following the norms or divergent it uses Mary Douglas theory of anomaly.

    The results show that it is mainly the narrator and Olof Palme that gets to form the myth of him but also his family, friends, fellow employees and other persons that met him or was affected by his actions. Palme is discribed as special, intelligent, interested in social politics and able to act as he saw fit even if it was against the norms. He is above all described as a complex person with many and sometimes contradicting sides. Some of these actions and characteristics’ are viewed as following the norms while others are shown as anomalies.

    Abstract [en]

    "In the eye of the beholder- A didactic study of Swedish teachers and textbooks in history’s reasoning about nine eleven and its aftermath" by Emmy Johansson and Emma Svanström aims to show which picture both teachers and textbooks on elementary school and upper secondary school want to mediate on the subject. The study also strives to compare the teachers view with the textbooks.

    To achieve these goals the study uses materials from eight interviews and fifteen textbooks. The methods are a combination of interviews and textual analysis inspired by the scientist Elizabeth D. Herman. Comparison was also included in order to be able to compare teachers and textbooks. Content analysis and sentence centralization was used in order to analyze the materials. Finally the study used a combination of theoretical concepts which included history didactics, historically consciousness and facts about the production of textbooks.

    The results show that although there is a great variation in how teachers as well as textbooks reason about the subject there are also many similar thoughts and presentations. This is the case for as well teachers as textbooks and the comparison between them. The study also reveal that although teachers are skeptical about the textbooks they are both needed to form a good education. But such a combination would still leave some effects unmentioned to the students.

    This essay is about the discourse within the official state investigations about the social childservice legislation in Sweden during 1921-1956. The main focus is on the fosterchildren and how they are percieved and described as well as how the ideals for their upbringing is pronounced within the discourse. How was the categorization and the definition of the fosterchildren pronounced and motivated? How was the ideal upbringing pronounced and motivated? How and towards who was powerclaims expressed?                       The definition of fosterchildren and ideals for their upbringing varied during the period in a way that correlate to the changes in society during the same period, for example regarding the development in psychiathry and state organisations.                               Claims of power was made between the state and the parents, which became increasingly strong at the expense of the parent. The society and its organisations developed fargoing ways of controlling and acting towards its citizens during the period. The claims of power between parents and children was always to the parents favor, although the increasing powerclaims of the state decreased the parents power over their children. There was a change in the powerclaim between state and child where the state had a decreased possibility of power as the childrens personal thoughts and needs at the end of the period was considered too important to oversee.

    Integrering eller tillägg: En kvalitativ studie om inkludering av jämställdhetsperspektiv i historieundervisning på gymnasiet2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to elucidate and analyze history teacher's didactic choices in the conflict between unequal educational materials and the requirements of equality in the curriculum of Swedish secondary school. The empirical data consists of interviews with five secondary school history teachers, observations of their lessons as well as analysis of their tests. The starting point was to investigate teachers' didactic work in the role as a bridge between the non-equal historiography presented in textbooks in history and the curriculum’s demands for equality. Three different approaches have been observed in the teachers' didactic work when considering gender perspective into their teaching: that women become extensions in a male-dominated historiography; that another part of the story is presented when a gender perspective is considered; and that the gender perspective is included in history teaching and becomes an integral part of all the content of the subject.

    Several of the teachers acknowledged that gender equality is less prioritized than the courses core content and related assessment criteria. By analyzing the data, using theories of gender, this paper concludes that the lack of equal substance content also depends on the school's gender regime in which the male-dominant history is seen as more important than the one that integrates both men and women.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to map and analyze what role Swede's played in King Leopold II's colony in the former Congo Free State. Letters and messages that arrived at the Congo Consulate in Sweden between 1895 and 1906 have been used as the paper's primary sources. Application letters from 32 different Swedes, seeking to join the Congo Free State Army, to the General Consul of the Congo Consulate, Hans Hugold von Schwerin, have been used as primary sources, and constitute the basis of the paper's analysis. The letters arrived at the Congo Consulate in Sweden between 1895 and 1906.

     

    The applicants were all men of different social classes, and were between the ages of 20 and 30 years old. Their chief reasons for applying were primarily for own financial gain or because they did not get a chance to serve in the Swedish army. The Swedes who went on to serve in the Congo Free State Army were mostly members of the Swedish upper class and already trained military officers.

     

    By analyzing the data using theories of imperialism, this paper concludes that Sweden did in fact play part in, and contributed to, the development of imperialism in large, and the imperialism that developed in the Congo Free State in the late 1800's.

    Abstract [en]

    A qualitative study of the implementation of Skolverkets educational documents in the pragmatic teaching of the Swedish upper secondary school. Based on material from the theoretical curriculum and education documents from Skolverket and practical feedback from teachers through semistructured interviews, this bachelor thesis wants to see how the teaching of Swedish rightwing extremist groups, racism and intolerance manifests itself in the different history courses on offer. Through a backgroundpresentation of the right-wing extremism group´s past in the decades of 1990´s, 2000´s and the 2010´s in Sweden, the practice of history is discussed as a theory in which this implementation could be applicated in teaching in the undergraduate courses History 1a1, 1a2, 1b and immersion courses 2a, 2b and History 3. Everything based on the statement of the theoretical education documents, and the label of the teaching, as inclusive and based on the values with focus on democratic values and human rights. The result that the teaching of racism and intolerance exists clearly matches the changes that were implemented in the curriculum for upper secondary school in 2011, but that the teachers does not discuss right-wing extremist groups, which also means that an interest of these may grow into the student’s mindset and that could be a problem for the democratic society. Through this, the extremist’s groups may in some cases have a method of entrenchment among pupils, and a new generation of members is persuaded by a misuse of the history practice.

This survey and the articles  from DN that is analyzed is the ground in this papers issues, discussion and results. The paper overall and later the analysis is based on a theory in Oral history taken of Malin Thor's previous researches in the field and also strengthened with other researchers in the same field of studies.

     

    The title to this paper is from the English press reporting about the Swedes taking charge of the UNPROFOR-mission in the Balkan conflict and is about the Colonel Ulf Henricsson, commander of the UN Nordic battalion (NordBat2) in central Bosnia and his firm hand and authority against the local warlords. Later the title went famous international and a lot of different newspapers used it as a headline when reporting about the Swedish soldiers acting aggressively and firmly towards the war-criminals when protecting civilians and their properties in Bosnia.

    Abstract [en]

    I have in this essay focused on the attitude towards the medieval muslims in swedish textbooks, in the subject of history from the years between 1954 and 2012. I have made an analysis on the discourse in the books and what they says about the muslims who lived before 1500 AD. The theory I have is a Postcolonial one from the authors Edward Said, Ania Loomba and Leela Gandhi. I have also analyzed the rhetorics the authors have used in every textbook. The results I have identified is that the attitude towards the muslims have changed during the years, from a generalizing view that says that the muslims were driven by the religion and that they were different from the Christian European society that existed during the same time. During the years the attitude changed to be more objective and don´t focus so much on the religion as a power over the will of the people and more towards economic and political reasons for the expansion during the 7th and 8th century. The religious tolerance towards Jews and Christians during the islamic reign in the Middle East is presented and is mentioned in most of the books during all of the decades. My conclusions according to the theory is that the change in the attitude can be a result of a higher level of knowledge about the medieval muslims and a decrease in how much the postcolonial theory have influenced the authors.

    Identitet på display: En kvalitativ studie om samiska föremål på Huseby bruk.2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The collecting of different material cultures has been portrayed as a popular lifestyle among folk researchers. The Sami culture has not been treated differently. George Stephens (1813-1895) was a professor at Uppsala and Copenhagen University and owner at Huseby in Småland. The essay has identified that a large number of the artefacts categorised as Sami were in fact of non-Sami background. George Stephens left the collection to the future without describing the origins of the Sami collection, leaving only notes for us to analyze. His work of historical melodies would significantly assist our searching for the truth concerning the objects including experts pinpointing the objects creators and cultural identity throughout Sápmi and history. This essay is an attempt to clarify both the cultural and historical background of said objects and to apply the Actor-Network Theory on the collections founder George Stephens. The study is based on Tetteris method of materialistisc analyzation aswell as Pearces method of specialist inclusion. The studies theory is based of Latour and Laws Actor-Network Theory, also called ANT, which maps relationships of people and intentions. A collectors network of contacts is vast, so a narrowing a network to George Stephens contacts creates the best possible approach to anwser the studies questions.

    Abstract [en]

    This study analyses illegitimate children and their mothers in three different areas in current Karlskrona municipality. The areas that’s been studied is the parish of Kristianopel and Lösen and Karlskrona city parish during the periods 1861-1865, 1890-1900 and 1930-1935. The study is comparative in a time perspective but even in a perspective of different areas. The purpose of this study is to analyze the profession of the unmarried mothers, their chances of getting married and their age. The study also shows the amount of illegitimate children and the percentage of stillborn baby’s in the chosen assembly’s. The method that have been used is of quantitative nature as the main questions of the study is answered by statistics. The study’s theoretical point is gender as an analytical category.

    The study shows that the investigated areas are overrepresented when it comes to the amount of illegitimate birth in comparison with the national average. The reason among other things is low percentage of religious revivalist movement and changes in the economic system. The child mortality was higher among the illegitimate baby’s than among the children born in marriage. One of the reason can be that the unmarried mothers was forced to work long days with heavy work and that they came from lower social classes whit small financial assets. The child mortality decreases from 1861-1865 until 1930-1935. This is a result of the unmarried mothers getting better conditions, better birth control during pregnancy and less childbirth at home.

    Many of the illegitimate children were without a known father in the birth book. In all the parish that have been studied there are more known fathers between 1930-1935 in comparison with 1861- 1865. The reason can be the law change in 1918 that stipulated that every unmarried mother should have a child welfare who among other thing help the mother to get economic support from the father.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the relationship between names of hun- dreds, village names correlating with hundred names, and places of assembly. Usually it is assumed that many of the hundreds were given names from names of villages where the assemblies of the hundreds were held. However, when the matter is studied more carefully, taking landscape, field names, and historical and archaeological sources into consideration, another picture is visible: It seems that there are very specialplaces in landscape, archaic and mythic ones, presumably placesof assembly, which in their landscape setting and mythic status as well as by their names link legal activity of the hundreds to a remote prehistoric past. It is likely that the names of these places are the origin of both the hundred names and correlating names of villages in the vicinity. A case study is presented, about Harjager hundred in south-west Scania), Stora and Lilla Harrie villages, and Harthaker ‘ hard field’. The results could support the view that names of archaic places in landscape, rather than correlating village names, are the onomastic origin of the hundred names. But the picture is complex and from this case alone other interpretations are possible as well.
