    Fall in Line: Genus, kropp och minnena av det amerikanska inbördeskriget i skandinavisk reenactment2020Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    “Fall in line” is a military command used when the American Civil War is reenacted in Scandinavia, ordering the soldiers to stand in a row. The command can also be used as a metaphor for the adaptations reenactors make as a group to guidelines, originating from collective memories of the Civil War. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate gender and body as dimensions of the collective conciliation of memories within a group reenacting historical events. The body's materiality, material objects such as clothing, interactions between members of a group and with contemporary surroundings all have a varying impact on the evolving conciliation of the memories. Historical reenactment is a slightly unconventional context in which people make use of history, and the thesis highlights how events from history are modernised, utilised and forgotten, in the absence of regulatory documents and institutions. The collective memories act as a reference, yet the memories are constantly evolving. The thesis discusses how American collective memories are remediated within a Scandinavian context.

    The study is based on autoethnographic studies, interviews of group members and is supported by photographs. The autoethnographic studies allow for a new method of historical research, whereby the researcher becomes part of the material. Based on the queer phenomenology perspective that every person adapts to the behaviour expected in a group, I have been able to use the autoethnographic material to study my own adaptations. The expectations are based on the collective memories and are thus conciliated and changed. My own body and my experiences serve to highlight how gender and body are decisive dimensions when conciliating memories.

    During reenactment, a temporary memorial site is created where the distance between it and the contemporary world allows for conciliation of memories of the past. The reenactors move around the constructed space in different ways, determined by gender and body. Some reenactors move around the boundaries with the surrounding area, which is not included in the reenactment, and others move closer to the centre and are therefore also closer to the seemingly authentic. The memories of the past are generated by means of movement along the lines staked out in the space or along alternative lines, and it is not possible to understand how the memories are conciliated without studying gender and body.

    Abstract [sv]

    Undersökningens syfte är att studera varför det fortfarande bedrivs särundervisning istället för samundervisning på vissa högstadieskolor, hur idrottsämnet har utvecklats ur en historisk synvinkel samt elevers och lärares synsätt på de olika undervisningsmetoderna. Detta

    genomförs med litteraturstudier, intervjuer av lärare samt elevenkäter.

    Genom denna undersökning utvecklar vi våra motiveringar till det undervisningssätt som vi i framtiden kommer att bedriva. Då vi har använt oss av genusteorier kom vi fram till att en mix av de olika undervisningssätten är att föredra för att främja jämställdhet då ren samundervisning oftast bedrivs på pojkars villkor.

    Abstract – Noblesse oblige: a roleplaying game

    During the 17th-century the Swedish nobility was forced to deal with a number of new challenges. They reached the height of their power, but also began their downfall. How did the nobility’s ideal come to be in the face of this? Can we in these ideals find the duties and obligations of the nobility? And if we can, how can a roleplaying game be made out of the historical facts? A roleplaying game meant for educational means, well suited for the classroom and teachers, capable of stimulating the young minds and offering them an in depth understanding of how the nobility’s minds moved. In this study it will show, with the help of a qualitative method along with the theory of Mark Edward Motley and a look at social sanctions from the time. We shall find that the nobility indeed held obligations and duties both.

    Dödligt våld under 1950-19592019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    This essay is about criminal cases with deadly outcomes in Skåne during the period 1950 - 1959. The seven chosen cases were gathered from criminal records from the ”härdansrätt” in Frosta and Eslöv. These cases have not previously been written about and therefore somewhat unheard of. The focus will lay on the gender, age and social status of the perpetrators. Some of the years in are of less importance since no crimes with deathly outcome was found. The most dominated cause of death are crimes commired in traffic. Traffic offenses spiked in the 1950’s when the use of motor vehicles was more common and more people fell victim to those kind of accidents. The main point of the essay is to examine why the accidents/crimes led to death and how the media wrote about it.

    Sweden’s first mass murderer, Tore Hedin, will be mentioned. He is worth mentioning since he was active during the chosen time period, but since he wasn’t put before a trial, he won’t be part of the main study.

    Möjligheternas städer?: En kohortstudie av social mobilitet under urbaniseringen i Sverige 1890-1940 2024Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Cities of possibility? – A cohort study of social mobility during the urbanization of Sweden 1890-1940 

    This cohort study examines the social mobility of countryside migrants to Swedish cities in the period of 1890-1940. The purpose is to determine whether the claim that cities had enhanced possibilities for the individual and therefore offered a chance for social advancement. The question in operation is whether migration to a city meant an improved social advancement. To aid the analysis classic urbanization theory and multi-phasic demographic response were added. To observe the social mobility in cities a cohort of 315 people born in the southeast of Kalmar län in the year 1890 were observed on indicators of geographical and social mobility as well as family life. This group was then divided into one cohort that moved to the cities and one that stayed in the countryside. The study found, in agreement with previous research on the area, that most of the individuals moving to the cities were from a blue-collar [obesutten] background and that this group had a small majority of women. The individuals from a white-collar [besutten] background mostly skirted the cities, preferring to stay in the countryside or to emigrate. However, Swedish urbanization studies of this period have not agreed on whether cities had a positive, neutral, or negative impact on the social mobility of those who migrated there. This study found a complicated pattern where blue-collar women had an improved social advancement in the cities. Meanwhile, white-collar women had a larger risk of degrading socially and blue-collar men in the cities had the least mobility of all groups involved. To summarize, migration to the cities were mostly a choice by those with blue-collar background and while the women did enhance their social advancement as a group the rest of those who urbanized were negatively impacted. This, on top of only a few white-collar women and only two white-collar men choosing to move to a city indicates, with aid of the theory of multi-phasic demographic response, that cities mostly did not offer an opportunity better than the countryside or a life overseas could. Hence, it was found that cities did not improve social advancement.

    När föräldrarna inte räcker till: anlitade och lämpliga fosterhem under 1900-talet2012In: Barn, ISSN 0800-1669, no 4, p. 89-107Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In all times and in all societies, there have been children who for various reasons have not been able to grow up with their biological parents. The solutions to this problem have varied; in Sweden most of these children have been placed in foster care. Due to a law regulating state child-care passed in 1926, children’s welfare boards were established in the municipalities. These boards were responsible for placing children with foster parents and for supervising foster homes. Foster parents were required to be suitable. This article focuses on who were contracted as foster parents during the 20th century. The study is based on textual analysis of child welfare practices. The study shows that the children’s welfare board increasingly had ambitions to place children in family constellations that were considered to be ”normal” and ”natural”, in order to contribute to normalization. Foster parents should preferably be married couples. They were expected to be neither too old nor too young. In the middle of the century foster parents from the middle-class were over-represented. In the 1970s there was a shift in who were contracted. For example, placements with relatives became less frequent. There were new demands on the foster parents’ suitability. Previous experience of children was desirable. Some foster parents began to be described as some kind of experts and their homes in terms of treatment.

    De dramatiserade drottningarna: Svenska drottningar i historisk dramadokumentär2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate how femininity is portrayed in relation to power in the Swedish documentary series Drottningarna, which follows the life experience of 8 Swedish queens. This will be researched based on the theories of hegemonic masculinity and femininity. The study also aims to investigate what purposes might have contributed to how the different queens are portrayed in the series, and how truthful the representation of them is. The results shows that power in the series is often associated with breaking and opposing the power structures, but also with typically hegemonic masculine traits such as assertiveness, independence and aggressivity. the series also seems to primarily have a commercial purpose, even though it contains both cognitive, moral, and aesthetic intentions. This in turn affects the credibility of the series in a negative way, as the focus is on making good television instead of sticking to historical truths.

    Valfilmens roll i Sverige under andra världskriget: En undersökning av valfilmernas budskap under krigstiden 1939–19452019Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this research was to examine what message the political parties in Sweden wanted to convey in election films during the years 1939-1945. The goal was to discover both explicit and implicit messages. To conduct this research, a content analysis with a rhetorical focus was used.

    Some of the discoveries in this research was that the political parties wanted to convince the voters that the military was capable of defending the country against foreign powers. Another distinct discovery was that the parties’ spoke highly of past accomplishments regarding social reforms and that they wanted to assure the voters of future efforts. Distinguishable differences regarding politics could be noticed between Socialdemokraterna and Högerpartiet regarding economics and government involvement in enterprise.

    All the rhetorical methods of persuasion could be discovered in the films. The easiest to distinguish of the three was logos, which alludes to the electors’ common sense and ability to make rational decisions.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper has been to examine the heavy metal band Sabatons use of history and to relate it to societal trends in today’s Sweden. I have examined Sabatons music, album covers and music videos in order to define a certain use of history. To do this I have used a use of history theory and a heavy metal theory. My results showed that some of Sabatons use of history could be defined as commercial and that the societal trends in today`s Sweden have in some cases affected the selection and presentation of events and characters that`s been portrayed by Sabaton. Earlier use of history in other forms of media, especially movies, has also played a part in the selection and presentation, which becomes particularly obvious in some of Sabatons music videos. However, an overall theme in my results have shown that the heavy metal cultures norms and ideas have been the main cause behind the selection, but especially the way characters and events is portrayed in their songs, an existential use of history.

    Vildmark/Lappmark: Föreställningar om naturen, samerna och naturväsen i Lappmarkerna 1670-17402018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate Swedish representations of the Lappmark in the 1600s and 1700s, with particular regard to the descriptions of nature and the supernatural. The study examines how swedes depicted nature and nature spirits in the Lappmark, and how the descriptions relate to larger process during the time period. The sources used are mainly from priests who were active in the Lappmarks during this period. The source material has been divided into two groups to simplify the comparison, one containing Johannes Schefferus Lapponia (1673), the other contains Pehr Högströms Beskrifning öfver de till Sveriges krona lydande lappmarker (1747). Works such as Carolyn Merchants The Death of Nature (1989) and Henri Lefebvre's The Production of Space (1991) are used in the study.The study show that the early authors had a very negative attitude towards the Lappmark and its nature. The area was perceived as an unproductive wilderness, and the saamis were used as an example of the Lappmarks depraved nature. Högström approached the land from a different angle, he believed that the Lappmarks had a great potential once Gods plan for the region had been realized. Högström uses the Saami to show how a people, despite their shortcomings, still could flourish in the Lappmark. Högströms optimistic attitude required that he separated the nature spirits from nature, which illustrated the transition from the idea of a lifegiving nature to the idea of a mechanical nature. The study also contributes to new knowledge about how swedish priests tried to define and control the representation of the Lappmark and how this was complicated by both saamis and settlers.

    Världen vill bedras...: Lärare och elever om källkritik2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim with this study is to examine how students and teachers value source criticism. Partly, this regards how teachers practice this in their teaching and how students work with it during lessons – but also how students value source criticism in situations where the teacher not has pointed out that this topic is part of the actual assignment. Moreover, there is a focus on investigating how students who are critical of the sources take this into account in their daily lives; for example, when they surf on the Internet or when they discuss news articles or other media. This essay is based on interviews with students and teachers, using a qualitative method.

     

    The results of this study show that both students and teachers find source criticism to be of major importance. However, the results show that the students relate source criticism with school, since the students feel that the perspective of criticism gets omitted in daily situations where they do not get assessed. Additionally, this study makes it clear that teachers are working with source criticism in similar ways. For example, all teachers who participated in this study seem to include a period during the students’ first year on upper secondary school with an emphasis on this particular area. Thereafter, source criticism is included frequently in the teaching through analyses in the tasks that follow. Nevertheless, the students highlighted that they would like more concrete teaching within the area of source criticism on a frequent basis during lessons, especially during the later terms of upper secondary school.

    Bara vita barn i Sverige?: En studie med fokus på tidningsdebatten kring internationell adoption 1961-19642006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    År 1961 publicerades en notis i tidningen DN, där Medicinalstyrelsen avrådde från internationell adoption i större omfattning. I synnerhet om det gällde från adoptivföräldrarna starkt skilda rasgrupper. Detta uttalande väckte stark mediedebatt i Sverige under de följande åren. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur de olika tidningsdebattörerna ställde sig i adoptionsfrågan när det gällde utländska barn med annan ras eller etnicitet,samt få en ökad förståelse för varifrån dessa åsikter kan ha fått sin grund.

    Uppsatsen bygger på en kvalitativ innehållsanalys av artiklar som berör internationell adoption från 1961-1964. Syfte och frågeställningar diskuteras utifrån olika perspektiv på ras- och etnicitet, som kopplas till en socialkonstruvistisk bakgrund.

    Resultatet av studien visar att de parter som uttalade sig i artiklarna representerades av människor med olika förhållande till internationell adoption men att det ändå var journalisterna som dominerade antalet uttalande. Adoptivföräldrar kom först på tredje plats. De flesta ansåg att barnen hade goda möjligheter till anpassning i Sverige, det största hindret skulle vara om de var alltför märkta av sin tidigare miljö och att de riskerade att känna sig utanför på grund av sin avvikande hudfärg. De flesta debattörerna ville minska klyftan mellan "svarta" och "vita" men många fördomar fanns kvar främst genom att Sverige sedan 1920-talet varit världsledande inom rasbiologi. Arvet från den "vita" kolonialtiden samt den svenska afrikamissionen bidrog till den nedlåtande synen på främmlingar. Trots fördomar verkar de flesta debattörer positiva till internationell adoption, mycket pågrund av 1960-talets solidariska tänkande gentemot omvärlden.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the thesis is to examine how textbooks for the upper secondary school course history 1b depict the civil war in the former Yugoslavia. Five of the six books examined are aimed at the history 1b course, but all are adapted to the new curriculum GY11. The analysis of the material focuses on differences in factual content as well as what kind of use of history that has been utilized by the authors.

    The results shows that there are some substantial differences in terms of content regarding events and key players who were active in the war. The dates for when the conflicts started, the number of displaced people, the selected events as well as the key actors in the conflict vary significantly between the textbooks. Finally, a questionnaire survey shows that teachers around Sweden feel that they have insufficient time, which has resulted in a situation of priorities where the Yugoslav wars have almost no place in teaching.

    Comparative Historical Sociology and the State: Problems of Method2016In: Cultural Sociology, ISSN 1749-9755, E-ISSN 1749-9763, Vol. 10, no 3, p. 335-351Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Historical sociology can be understood both as a specific sub-field of sociology and as providing general conceptual underpinnings of the discipline, to the extent that it provides an understanding of the specificity of the modern state and the perceived emergence of modernity within Europe. The association of modernity with Europe (and with a European history limited to the selfidentified boundaries of the continent) is commonplace and pervasive within the social sciences and humanities. What such an understanding fails to take into consideration, however, are the connections between Europe and the rest of the world that constitute the broader context for the emergence of what is understood to be the modern world and its institutions, such as the state and market. In this article, I suggest that integral to this misunderstanding, and its reproduction over time, is the methodology of comparative historical sociology as represented by ideal types. In contrast, I argue for ‘connected sociologies’ as a more appropriate way to understand our shared past and its continuing impact upon the present. I examine these issues in the context of historical sociological understandings of nation-state formation.

    Abstract [en]

    This contribution addresses the impact of postcolonial critiques on sociology by drawing parallels with the emergence of feminism and queer theory within the academy. These critiques were facilitated by the expansion of public higher education over the last five decades and the article also addresses the implications of the privatisation and marketisation of the university on the processes of knowledge production.

    Abstract [en]

    Our contemporary political landscape is organised around the idea of the nation-state and, as Habermas (1998) (among many others) has argued, this idea is seen to have its origins in the system of sovereign states that came into being in Europe in 1648 with the Treaty of Westphalia. The history of the modern nation-state is then understood to be further shaped by the American and French Revolutions in the late eighteenth century. Within Europe, there are seen to be two routes to modern statehood. The first was the evolution of nation-states ‘within the boundaries of existing territorial states’ (Habermas 1998: 397), as was the case for most North and Western European states. The second was in establishing a nation and then a state, as exemplified by the projects of Germany and Italy in the late nineteenth century and the subsequent formation of states in Central and Eastern Europe in the twentieth. These initial formations, he continues, were followed in the period of mass decolonisation in the mid- to late-twentieth century by the establishment of ‘postcolonial’ states. A final moment in the history of nation-states is then presented as the secession of states from the Soviet Union in the aftermath of its collapse in the late twentieth century.

    European cosmopolitanism: Colonial histories and postcolonial societies2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book provides a fresh examination of the cosmopolitan project of post-war Europe from a variety of perspectives. It explores the ways in which European cosmopolitanism can be theorized differently if we take into account histories which have rarely been at the forefront of such understandings. It also uses neglected historical resources to draw out new and unexpected entanglements and connections between understandings of European cosmopolitanism both in Europe and elsewhere. The final part of the book places European cosmopolitanism in tension with contemporary postcolonial configurations around diaspora, migration, and austerity. Overall, it seeks to draw attention to the ways in which Europe’s posited others have always been very much a part of Europe’s colonial histories and its postcolonial present.

    Introduction: Colonial histories and the postcolonial present of European cosmopolitanism2016In: European cosmopolitanism: Colonial histories and postcolonial societies / [ed] Bhambra, G.K., Narayan, J., Routledge, 2016, , p. 200p. 1-14Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book provides a fresh examination of the cosmopolitan project of post-war Europe from a variety of perspectives. It explores the ways in which European cosmopolitanism can be theorized differently if we take into account histories which have rarely been at the forefront of such understandings. It also uses neglected historical resources to draw out new and unexpected entanglements and connections between understandings of European cosmopolitanism both in Europe and elsewhere. The final part of the book places European cosmopolitanism in tension with contemporary postcolonial configurations around diaspora, migration, and austerity. Overall, it seeks to draw attention to the ways in which Europe’s posited others have always been very much a part of Europe’s colonial histories and its postcolonial present.

    The Indian Patola: Import and consumerism in early modern Indonesia2019In: Journal of Historical Research in Marketing, ISSN 1755-750X, E-ISSN 1755-7518, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 271-294Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose The present paper aims to focus on the Indian influence in the transfer of, the business of and consumer markets for Indian products, specifically, textiles from producers in the South Asian subcontinent to the lands to the east of Bali. This aspect of the influence of Indian products has received some attention in a general but not been sufficiently elucidated with regard to eastern Indonesia. Design/methodology/approach This paper is based on archival research, as well as secondary data, derived from the published sources on early trade in South Asia and the Indian Ocean world. The study includes data about the Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie, a Dutch-owned company, and its textile trade history with India and the Indonesian islands with a special focus on Patola textiles. Narratives and accounts provide an understanding of the Patola, including business development and related elite and non-elite consumption. Findings The paper shows how imported Indian textiles became indigenised in important respects, as shown in legends and myths. A search in the colonial sources demonstrates the role of cloth in gift exchange, alliance brokering and economic network-building in eastern Indonesia, often with important political implications. Research limitations/implications - The study combines previous research on material culture and textile traditions with archival data from the early colonial period, thus pointing at new ways to understand the socio-economic agency of local societies. Originality/value Only mapping the purchase and ownership of trading goods to understand consumption is not enough. One must also regard consumption, both as an expression of taste and desire and as a way to reify a community of people.

    ANC-galan i Götegorg 1985: En analys av sången Soweto som politisk mobilisering2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

    Bjelkenbrant, Pernilla, 2006: ANC-galan i Göteborg 1985: en analys av sången Soweto som politisk mobilisering (The ANC gala in Gothenburg in 1985: an analysis of the song Soweto as a means of political mobilisation)

    The political scientists Abdul Karim Bangura, Ove Nordenmark and Tor Sellström, all believe that there, during the 1980s, existed a strong and unified “Swedish” attitude against the South African apartheid system, and Sellström points out that this position had a strong anchorage in the ANC gala in Gothenburg in 1985. Over the past few years, singing has been identified as playing a crucial role in the struggle against apartheid. The aim of this study is twofold: firstly it presents a comprehensive discussion on how song is generally considered a tool of political mobilisation, secondly it discusses how that process can be applied to the ANC-gala. Consequently, the theoretical discussion constitutes the initial part of the study. The purpose of this study is to explore how Mikael Wiehe’s lyrics Soweto, as a representative of the songs that were performed during the gala, mobilised support for the ANC within as well as outside the Swedish solidarity movement, and how Soweto contributed to creating and consolidating a unified attitude towards apartheid – an attitude that went beyond those different opinions on apartheid that existed in the Swedish debate.

    Starting out from the work of the historians Kim Salomon and Håkan Thörn, as well as the political scientist Immanuel Wallerstein, the study shows how the ANC-gala relates to the Swedish solidarity movement and the African National Congress (ANC). Explaining the gala as an area of definition processes and social interaction within which there are constantly created or defined more or less embracing identities, and thereby regarding the gala a collective sympathiser with the potential to strengthen the opinion for the Swedish solidarity work against apartheid, it is possible, when adding the political scientist Mark Mattern’s study, Acting in Concert: Music, Community, and Political Action, to create the theoretical framework needed to accomplish the second part of the study.

    In the initial study it is stated that song mobilises politically by telling stories about the past. Song works as a communicator and creator of identity as the author of a song integrates in it common experiences. To explore Soweto from that point of view there are developed a few questions that together provides us with the answers to what history Soweto presents, and how that history is being presented.

    In the latter part of the study it is stated that it is possible for a number of groups to identify with the past that is being presented in Soweto, and even though it appears how the song has the capacity to split common identities – that it debates divergent interests – it also becomes evident how it brings those same groups together in their various strives for an existence in peace. The reason for this seems to be the fact that Soweto presents universal concepts that everybody, no matter what affiliation or extent of knowledge in the apartheid issue, can relate to. This way, Soweto appeals to advocates as well as opponents of apartheid, in South Africa as well as in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, you will be accompanied by a press-historical survey over a three-day period, with three newpapers as the main source. Aftonbladet, Norrskensflamman and Svenska Dagbladet, in my investigation the newspapers have completely different political views. The survey is based on how the magazines choose to present the three themes I have chosen to investigate. My themes are the course of war, Finnish politics and foreign opinion.

    Norrskensflamman never writes anything about the course of war, it may be because they do not want to present that the Red Army does not really manage to achieve anything at all. Norrskensflamman uses valuable words such as fascists, hypocrites, liars and so on to discuss Finnish politics. The image of the Soviet Union Norrskensflamman presents is that their purpose is to rescue the Finnish people from the oppressive goverment and the people government is considered the Finnish people who revolted and with help of the Red Army expel the fascists out of Finland. Foreign opinion largely tells the newspaper that the United States and Britain will not participate in the war for various reasons. Norrskensflamman mention Germany as despite to their alliance with the Soviet Union, they really sympathize with Finland and that Germans are worried about the Soviet Union’s increasing influence in Europe and in the Baltic Sea.

    Svenska Dagbladet and Aftonbladet write their war reports fairly similary. However there are still significant differences and that is: Aftonbladet writes more exalted about the Finnish war efforts than Svenska Dagbladet and has a writer who calls himself G.M. who writes that the Finnish army is fighting extremly well ands shoots very well, causing great losses to the enemy. Svenska Dagbladet and Aftonbladet portray Finnish politics in fairly similar ways, but there are still some differences. Aftonbladet presentes two government shifts, while Svenska Dagbladet and Norrskensflamman only presents one. In addition, Aftonbladet writes in more valuble words about why they pity that after the first shift of reign of government, Tanner and Kivimäki were not in power during the negotiations in Moscow, as they might have been able to prevent the war. In foreign opinion, there are also clear differences between Aftonbladet and Svenska Dagbladet. Among other things Aftonbladet mentions that Italy condemns Germany for its inaction and is agressively advancing towards the Soviet Union. However, both mention that demonstrations and sympathy demonstrations are held outside the Soviet Union and Finland embassies in Rome.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det huvudsakliga syftet med min uppsats var att studera hur tre olika aspekter påverkade Gårdby socken och dess båtsmän under Stora nordiska kriget, nämligen krig, pest och missväxt. Med hjälp av de källor jag har studerat, militära rullor, kyrkoböcker och mantalslängder, har jag fått fram hur livet kunde te sig för de indelta båtsmännen men också hur pestens verkningar påverkade socknen mer långsiktigt än vad krigets utskrivningar gjorde. Jag har även studerat hur missväxten föll ut i Gårdby och jämfört detta med till exempel byn Andersvattnet, Stockholm och övriga riket.

    ”Tjejer borde hålla på med annat”: En kvalitativ generationsstudie om kvinnliga ishockeyspelare, födda på 1970-, 80- och 90-talet och deras erfarenheter av sportens maskulina normer och kulturella uttryck.2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to enlighten and discuss if there is any possible differences of how female ice-hockey players experienced norms and the masculine culture within ice-hockey. By asking women from three generations, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, this study wants to find out what these differences might be. Six female ice-hockey players, two born in each decade are interviewed in this study. The study have examined what norms were apparent and how these were dealt with as female ice-hockey players. During what conditions could young girls play ice-hockey and how were they met by people in that environment. Furthermore, the study examines the differences of these experiences. 

     

    The primary result of the study shows that it´s a bigger difference between the experiences of the women born in the 1970s and 1980s than the difference between the ones born 1980s and 1990s. Primarily the differences are of how they were met and what others thought of women playing ice-hockey. The conditions of playing ice-hockey have, throughout the generations, stayed the same as well as the norms within the sport.

    Den svenska neutraliteten: En studie hur rikets neutralitet skildras i skolans historieböcker2019Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    How has the question of Swedish neutrality been taught in the Swedish school during the 1950s, 1960s and 2000s?

    Neutrality is changeable and can be linked to shifts in history culture, conscious and contemporary perceptions during time.

    The material has been interpreted through the hermeneutics guidelines, which means that I have made the interpretation.

    At the beginning of the Second World War in 1939, the Swedish government declared the country neutral. Sweden was represented during the war by a collective government led by Per Albin Hansson and declared the country as "non-warring". The consequence of this was that Sweden was not drawn into any armed conflict. In our school books, the knowledge is conveyed that Sweden was not included in the Second World War. Between historians and within history science, it is continuously debated to what extent the Swedish government maintained and protected the neutrality. The essay will analyze and study material in which Sweden’s neutrality is portrayed and in what way the transit agreement is reported in the textbooks and how it differs. Differences in history consciousness will be investigated with the help of current research. Compared to previous research, this study provides a more complex understanding of neutrality changes in school textbooks. The analysis has concluded that the historiography appears different over time and that the ethical aspect is becoming increasingly apparent.

    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the Swedish coalition government during World War II. The purpose of this study is to examine the creation of and the resolution of this government and to see if there were any disagreements in the Social Democratic Party during the creation and resolution of this government. The study also focuses on the attitude towards the Swedish Communist Party. The method that has been used is a content analysis and argumentation analysis to see how eventual disagreements has been expressed in the Social Democratic Party. The study is based on the theory of consensus and conflict which we have applied to the material. The empirical material of this essay is based on protocols from the Swedish Labor Movement’s Archives and Library and examines protocols from different political meetings. The study concludes that in general we can see a tendency of political consensus among most of the representatives from the Social Democratic Party even though there were differences of opinions on the way to democratic decisions.
