    On Genocide and the Holocaust in Swedish History Teaching2015In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 58-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching about the Holocaust and other genocides is emphasized in Swedish History teaching. In Sweden there is a public authority commisioned to work with issues related to tolerance, democracy and human rights. It is this context and under these conditions, that Swedish History teachers select a variety of topics for their students to learn, as part of the History curriculum. In addition to the Holocaust, they teach about crimes against humanity committed under communist regimes, the genocide of Tutsies in Rwanda, and mass murder and ethnic cleansing in former Yugoslavia. Teachers use a multiplicity of uses of history and teaching methods. They conduct a scientific use of history when focusing on the historical contexts and explaining the background, motives and consequences of genocide. Teachers also stress the students’ personal reflections and standpoints in a moral use of history. The teaching aims at developing understanding and empathy among students.

    Patterns of reasoning: A tentative model to analyse historical and moral consciousness among 9th grade students2017In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 23-35Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Students find ethical and moral issues central and interesting when they interpret history. History can offer explanations and references to moral values that are still valid - or not valid - in our time. At the same time moral values provide conceivable contexts that connect students to the past. Views on interrelations between the past and the present seem to interact with the students' moral foundations, questions, interpretations, understanding or repudiation. On a societal level similar phenomena can be identified when groups of people turn to history either to handle challenges or to apologize or heal wrongs from the past. Furthermore National curricula prescribe ethical dimensions in school education, not least for the subject of history.

    In this pilot study swedish 9th grade students discuss a text from Christopher Brownings' book Ordinary Men. The students' answers are analysed in a theroetical model including different aspects of historical consciousness and different apsects of moral reasoning. The aim is to study if there are patterns of interrelations and, if so, how these patterns are manifested.

    Subject-specific language and pupils’ use of concepts in history as curriculum subject: Ämnesspråk och begreppsanvändning i historieämnet2019In: NOFA7 Abstracts: Stockholm University, 13 - 15 May 2019, Stockholm: Stockholm University, 2019, p. 19-19Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent decades, the importance of language in various subjects has gained more attention in research, however mainly in linguistic research. When it comes to studying the language as a tool for learning and communicating history, the research field is still fairly unexplored.

    For history as a scientific discipline and for history as an educational subject, the language is central in several aspects, as an object and as a tool. The language is what you actually study in the form of source material and the tools you use to decode, interpret and describe.

    The subject-specific language consists largely of concepts for the specific methodological aspects, concepts of specific epochs and different theoretical concepts for interpretation and analysis. In addition, there are a number of terms that are typical for the historical time you study. In order to analyze and understand the historical context, you must also master these time-related concepts.

    In this article I investigate how a group of 9-grade pupils use subject-specific language in the form of the subject- specific concepts of change and continuity when describing historical development in the national test in history.

    The study shows that the pupils use the concepts, but with different functions. The concepts structure to a certain extent the student's answers, but they rarely have an explanatory or contextualizing function. Some pupils present their answers to show that they use the prescribed concepts. They do not use the concept in order to describe or explain the historical context.

    To Bridge Time: Historical Consciousness in Swedish History Textbooks2010In: Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, ISSN 2041-6938, E-ISSN 2041-6946, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 17-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the early 1990s, the concept of historical consciousness has been central to didactic research in Sweden. It has mostly been used as a theoretical framework on a macro-level or as an attempt to identify students' historical consciousness. This article applies the theoretical concept of historical consciousness to tangible source material: history textbooks from the twentieth century. It focuses on whether Swedish history textbooks for lower secondary school have articulated contexts that may be conducive to developing historical consciousness. The article employs a number of theoretical concepts—narratives, multichronology, identity, and values—in order to analyze perspectives that can be utilized to trigger historical consciousness.

    What do you know when you know something about history?2014In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 50-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What does it mean to know something about history? If you know “your” history, what is it that you know? For many, it is definitely about being able to provide dates, to state what happened or how people lived in the past; while for others it means being able to conduct genealogical research or being able to navigate in a video game that takes place in an historical environment. In a school context, the issue of knowledge is always central. Pupils and teachers meet in, around and through knowledge, and moreover, knowledge is assessed daily. This article addresses how pupils in the last years of the nine-year period of Swedish compulsory schooling regard knowledge about history. The aim is to investigate how Swedish 15 years old pupils in Grade 9 describe knowledge about history, as well as what type of knowledge about history pupils appear to hold.

    Bridging historical consciousness and moral consciousness: Promises and challenges2017In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 1-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This special issue is the result of the workshop, Towards an integrated theory of historical and moral consciousness, supported by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences) and Suomen kasvatuksen ja koulutuksen historian seura (The Finnish Society for the History of Education) and held at the University of Helsinki, in 2015. History teaching and social studies education are increasingly expected to develop, among other things, students’ historical consciousness. This goal is highly relevant for students’ ability to deal constructively with controversial issues of history which is an important civic competence in the situation where in many societies’ political arguments concerning, for example, citizenship rights, ethnic and cultural diversity, and democracy are only too often fuelled by simplistic narratives of historical change and continuity. However, there is a blank spot in the existing research on historical consciousness in that intersections between historical and moral consciousness remain very much unexplored. This special issue seeks to identify promising theoretical and conceptual points of convergence for future interdisciplinary studies of historical and moral consciousness. Contributors are from the fields of history, educational research, social psychology, and philosophy.

    Historical and Moral Consciousness in Education: Learning Ethics for Democratic Citizenship Education2022Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Historical and Moral Consciousness highlights how ethics can be understood in the context of History education. It analyses the qualitative differences in how young people respond to historical and moral dilemmas of relevance to democratic values and human rights education.

    Drawing on a four-year international project, the book offers nuanced discussion and new scholarly understanding of the intersections between historical consciousness and moral consciousness within research. It develops new theoretical tools for history teaching and learning that can support teachers as they endeavor to educate for democratic citizenship. The book includes a meta-analysis of research within history Didaktik and around historical events with a moral bearing, and presents a comparative study of Australian, Finnish, and Swedish high school students’ moral understandings of historical dilemmas.

    Raising important questions about how our learning from the past is intertwined with our present and future interpretations and judgements, this book will be of great interest to academics, scholars, teachers, and post graduate students in the fields of history education, democratic education, human rights education, and citizenship education.

    I farmors kök blev jag människa: historiedidaktiska texter av K G Jan Gustafson2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    K   G Jan Gustafson, 1933–2011, var historiker, historielärare och lärarutbildare. Han undervisade i gymnasieskolan, på fångvårdsanstalt och under de sista 30 åren av sin lärargärning inom lärarutbildningen vid Lärarhögskolan, sedermera Högskolan i Kalmar. Gustafsons undervisning kännetecknades av den starka berättelsen och de levandegjorda, men systematiskt granskade, källorna. Han betonade vikten av att vårda relationen mellan människa och historia och att inte för ett ögonblick vackla i försvaret av dess betydelse. Gustafson var en av den svenska historiedidaktikens pionjärer med sin forskning om barns och ungdomars relation till historien. Särskilt uppmärksammade är hans longitudinella studier av såväl ungdomars, som deras föräldrars, historiemedvetande och hur det kan förändras över tid. Denna bok återger Gustafsons historiedidaktiska texter. Han tar läsaren med på en vitter, poetisk, oväntad, hisnande och frispråkig resa. Boken vänder sig till lärare, lärarstuderande och forskare med intresse för historiedidaktik och livsfrågor samt andra intresserade.

    History and moral encounters - an international research project, its results and implications for heritage educattion2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The project, History and Moral Encounters: exploring theoretical and empirical intersections of historical and moral consciousness from a History didaktik perspective, funded by the Swedish Research Council 2017-2022, was aimed to increase understanding of intersections of historical consciousness and moral consciousness in order to develop new theoretical tools for History teaching and learning that can support education for democratic citizenship. A starting point was that historical consciousness and moral consciousness are intertwined in interpreting and making meaningful the connections between the past, the present, and the future. Prior studies have indicated this is the case, and in the project a set of theoretical and empirical studies were done in Sweden, Finland and Australia, to further theorise and probe the connections empirically. History as a school subject is expected and often also stipulated to address moral questions and values and promote education for democratic citizenship, but the conceptual basis for this has been under-developed. The paper presents some of the key findings of the project and takes the opportunity to discuss further their connection with, and implications for heritage education where moral values and the processing of links between the different layers of time, from the past to the future, are central but often under-theorised questions.

    Moral Consciousness2023In: Bloomsbury History: Theory and MethodArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Moral consciousness can be defined as an ability to perceive that a social situation involves a moral dimension. It is the awareness that the consequence of one’s actions for the concerned parties is a morally pertinent issue, and an ability to think of potential consequences. As will be discussed below, moral consciousness has been given different meanings in different fields of scientific inquiry, and there is no widely established view of the content of the concept.

    The term “moral consciousness” has come up also in papers discussing historical consciousness though it usually has not been defined or elaborated in depth in that context. That there are connections, or “intersections” (Ammert et al. 2022), between how people relate to history and morality is evident. This happens, for example, in the encounter with history where reading a historical narrative sets in motion a moral evaluation of the historical event and the people involved in it. In fact, it is difficult to imagine a historical narrative that does not invite, at some level, the reader to a moral response.

    Exploring similarities and differences between the moral values and norms of the past and the present stimulates historical consciousness because it invites to reflect on the historical continuities and discontinuities and their implications for the future (Ammert 2015). Such reflections might easily express a presentist view that the current prevailing moral values are transhistorically valid, or relativism where every historical period is thought to have its own perception of morality that cannot be related to each other without it being anachronistic. Neither of these two positions is sensitive to the complexity of continuity and discontinuity between the past, present, and future, as in more elaborate historical consciousness. They are also not sensitive to the question as to what extent moral responses are culturally constructed or embedded in the psychology of the human species.

    Social perspective taking and moral reflection [judgment] in lower secondary school students’ responses to historical moral dilemmas: observations from a Swedish-Finnish survey study2019In: NOFA7 Abstracts: Stockholm University, 13 - 15 May 2019, Stockholm: Stockholm University, 2019, p. 20-20Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One the general learning objectives in school education is often development of students’ abilities of empathy, as part of their ability to deal with moral questions in ethically commendable ways. In history teaching one of the main learning objectives is development ofstudents’ historical empathy, i.e. their ability of social perspective taking that involves putting oneself in the position of historical actors and understanding the cultural, social and psychological factors that probably were present in the historical situation. Our paper discusses the relation between development of historical empathy and development of moral sensitivity as learning objectives, and it presents the matrix that we have used in the preliminary analysis of the complexity of students’ responses in a questionnaire which involved historical dilemmas. The question discussed in the paper is part of a wider research project on intersections of historical and moral consciousness.

    The empirical material discussed in the paper derives from a questionnaire study of c. 200 Swedish and Finnish lower secondary school students (9th grade). Students were asked to put themselves in the situation of particular historical actors and to answer questions that involved dealing with moral dilemmas. The students were asked to read an excerpt from Christopher Browning’s book Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland (orig. 1992) that describes the actions of men in the Police Battalion in the Holocaust during World War II. After reading the text the students were asked to answer open questions relating to the events in the excerpt. The material was analysed using a theory-driven qualitative analysis and the students’ answers were interpreted as expressions of their ability of social perspective taking and moral sensitivity. The analytic frame was built on theories of levels of historical empathy (Lee & Ashby 2001), social perspective taking (Hartmann & Hasselhorn 2008), and moral sensitivity (Rest 1986). The paper analyses the patterns that are visible in the students’ responses, the focus being on potential connections between levels of

    Working with the Cold War: Types of Knowledge in Swedish and Australian History textbook Activities2016In: Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, ISSN 2041-6938, E-ISSN 2041-6946, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 58-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a comparative analysis of pupils’ activities dealing with the Cold War in Swedish and Australian history textbooks. By focusing on text- book activities to which pupils respond in relation to their learning of a particular topic, this study identifies knowledge types included in a selection of history text- books. The study also focuses on the question whether, and if so how, social values are evident in activities concerning the Cold War. The authors develop a matrix that makes it possible to examine knowledge types and social values conveyed by ac- tivities. By analyzing textbook activities, this article exposes the hidden curriculum present in the textbooks on the basis of underlying and unstated values present in the activities, and at the same time identifies the way in which the selected text- books incorporate these values.

    Perspectives on History and Moral Encounters2022In: Historical Encounters: A journal of historical consciousness, historical cultures and history education, E-ISSN 2203-7543, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 1-6Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We are at a time in world political history that seems to be on a precipice. Over the past decade, it is difficult to ignore the global growth in popularity for autocratic governments, also in some countries which for decades were either strong democracies or moving towards stable democratic governance. The current Russian attack on Ukraine brings into stark focus the political instability many citizens are facing—historical problems are causing, or used as a pretext for, current conflicts. History educators across many sectors—primary, secondary, university, and in public spaces such as museums and galleries – are curious about how these and other current events and issues can and should be approached. The events raise anew the questions of whether and how we can learn from the past, what we value as good and bad in the past, and how these insights might affect our present and future judgements. In relation to this it becomes vital to ponder how educators and members of the public can communicate the situation in Ukraine and similar events to others, while avoiding the bias that presentism can bring.

    Identifying aspects of temporal orientation in students’ moral reflections2020In: History Education Research Journal (HERJ), E-ISSN 2631-9713, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 132-150Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    History education comprises moral issues and moral aspects, often perceived as an important and meaning-making foundation that makes learning relevant and interesting. The interrelationship between time layers fuels historical interpretations and facilitates perceptions of moral issues. This article focuses on a study investigating how secondary school students express inter-temporal relationships in encounters with a morally challenging historical event, which for the participants would have been a moral dilemma. Using historical consciousness as the theoretical framework, a matrix linking two prominent theoretical models – Jörn Rüsen’s (2004) types of narratives and Ann Chinnery’s (2013) strands of historical consciousness – was developed to analyse and categorize secondary school students’ expressions of temporal orientation. To carry out the research, 15-year-old Finnish and Swedish students read an excerpt from Christopher Browning’s (2017) book Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland (originally published in 1992). The students answered and discussed open-ended questions regarding the relevance of the text to their lives and others’ lives, and the applicability of this historical situation to Europe now and in the future. Using this empirical material, the analysis provides a tentative overarching depiction of students’ expressions of temporal orientation, and reports on findings of how temporal orientations relate to moral reflection.

    Att lära sig rätt kunskap och rätt värderingar: Om läroplanskoder i grundskolan 1962-20112020Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskningsöversikten är till huvudsak ett litteraturstudium som spänner över perioden 1962-2011 och syftar till att frilägga den värdegrund på vilka läroplanerna vilar. Studiet innefattar en genomgång av de huvudsakliga källorna som berör ämnet läroplan och läroplanskod i form av artiklar och avhandlingar. Studiet bearbetar inte primärt inte de läroplanstexter den angivna litteraturen avhandlar men analyserar den värdegrund som återspeglas i läroplanerna i de artikeltexter och avhandlingar som används. Studiet visar att de svenska läroplanerna från Lgr 62 till Lgr 11 tydligt använder en demokratisk grundidé som värdegrundade fundament men att vad denna demokratiska grundidé innefattar varierar något över tid i relation till samhällsutveckling och förändringar i samhället. Tre viktiga bakomliggande påverkansfaktorer lyfts fram i studiet. 1) Varje läroplan är ett barn av sin tid varvid läroplanen är den arena där skolan för en pågående dialog med de övergripande stora förändringar som sker i samhället och hur dessa påverkar undervisningen. 2) Läroplanerna är också en arena där olika politiska ideologier söker påverka undervisningen i linje med sina egna övertygelser och ideal. 3) Läroplanerna påverkas också av underliggande trender inom den pedagogiska forskningen som i sin tur ger återverkan på hur läroplanen förstås och utformas.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    This microhistorical study examines the local circle of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom in Växjö during the years 1935 to 1967. The purpose of the essay is to contribute to research in women’s history by describing and analyzing some of the association’s members and activities. The unprinted source material consisting of the association’s protocol books provides the basis for this study.  The theoretical basis is a gender perspective and a microhistorical perspective. Short biographies highlight the background and roles of the individual members in the association. The association’s organization and activities are described too. The analysis shows the members’ solidarity with other women, for instance through helping refugees. It also shows how the members used their economic, social and cultural capital in their peace efforts, and in forming networks both among themselves and with other organisations. In short, the members’ economic, social and cultural capital enabled them to work for peace. In their efforts they both came to challenge and maintain the gender system of their time.

    Jedna si jedina: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om kollektiv bosniakisk identitet, antagonism och skolgång i Sverige efter de jugoslaviska krigen2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study is a qualitative interview study that examines antagonism, identity and collective memory among second generation immigrants from Bosnia & Herzegovina. The study is based on an existential history use-perspective and social constructivist socialization theory. The study shows that the Bosniak identity is seldom defined by their history and the Yugoslavian wars but rather by language and traditions. In addition, the results indicate that the Bosniak identity has been assimilated to a large extent into the Swedish majority culture. The results also show that antagonism against other ethnic groups in the Balkans mainly occurs among first-generation immigrants while the descendants do not relate to a large extent to the war crimes and atrocities that occurred against Bosnian Muslims. Instead, they express empathy and sympathy for their parents’ experiences of these traumas. The respondents also experienced a nonchalance towards their background in Swedish history teaching where their history was neglected in favor of other wars and genocides. While the respondents suspected a fear of conflict among teachers to account for the area, they also told examples when teachers failed in the relational pedagogy and homogenized the individuals by letting them represent an entire conflict and ethnic group. Overall, the study shows that the use of history is not a recurring phenomenon among second-generation Bosniak immigrants, and their attitude focuses on individuals rather than groups. In the didactic part of the study, the results emphasize that history teachers might need to self-educate based on the students' background to create a meaningful education and create a history awareness among students.

    Libertalia, bokstavligen och bildligt talat?: En studie av Captain Charles Johnsons verks skildringar av Libertalia genom nutida historikers tolkningar2018Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Piracy has a big mysterious stamp. In the west, we have a clear picture of the 17th and 18th century pirates through stories about prostheses, planks, parrots and eyepatches. These stories come from one source, Captain Charles Johnson's legendary work that addresses a large number of pirates and their lives on the seven seas. This study investigates how modern historians relate critically to Captain Charles Johnson's work and how they interpret his stories about the fictional pirate utopia, Libertalia. What are their purposes and what have they been affected by? By applying a social-constructive theory, the purpose of course becomes evident by seeing what truths these historians created and carried on and how Charles Johnson's work was used in history. Through a social constructive study influenced by source criticism of the works of Marcus Rediker, David Cordingly and Philip Gosse, their interpretations have been perceived as very different. The different historians seem to have their own personal agendas and perceptions and have through their expertise created perceptions and stories that may characterize future generations' perception of the golden age of the piracy and, in particular, their image of Libertalia as a fair society without rulers.

     

    The researchers' source-critical approach varies from seeing Johnson's work as narrative stories for future generations to the fact that Johnson primarily had a profit interest in the authorship. These ideas, however, are something that the historians themselves have concluded and thus become part of the social construction we call reality, in which we exist.

    Samhällsarbetet börjar i hemmet: En studie om hur Västerviks husmodersförening verkade för att förbättra husmoderns villkor under åren 1950-19782018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This research project examines how the housewives’ association in the small town Västervik operated to make women and housewives much stronger in their everyday life. The housewives’ association in Västervik arranged all kind of different activities, for example, presentations of various household products, studying and charity work. As previous research has stated, the association could not really influence those in power, even if they were represented in numerous boards and wanted to reform many aspects of the society. The association’s strength was their impact on the local society and that they meant a great deal to those who were involved in their communion. The analysis of the results indicated that the housewives’ association mainly wanted to establish the woman as a stereotypical maternal woman. Furthermore, the investigation showed that the association in Västervik reduced their activities between 1950 and 1978, and this can be related to the historical context of Sweden during this time period, for example, the changing role of women in the society.

    An eighteenth-century ecology of knowledge: patronage and natural history2014In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 6, p. 1275-1297Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the construction and dissemination of natural-history knowledge in the eighteenth century.  It takes the mapping and narration of Orkney as a case study, focusing on the local minister and amateur natural-historian George Low and his network of patron-client relationships with such prominent natural historians as Joseph Banks and Thomas Pennant.  It focuses too on Low’s network of informants and assistants among local island farmers, and argues that canonical natural-history texts were the products of collaborative and interdependent processes that included a large number of actors from all strata of society. To conceptualise how natural-history knowledge was created in this period, the article applies the metaphoric description ‘an ecology of knowledge’. This approach enables a focus on a large number of actors, their collaboration and influence on each other, while also paying attention to asymmetrical power relationships in which competition and appropriation took place.
