    Swedish Television News Coverage and the Historical Media Memory of the Rwandan Genocide2010In: Scandia, ISSN 0036-5483, Vol. 76, no 2, p. 80-98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

     Syftet med artikeln har varit att analysera folkmordet i Rwanda som en global mediehändelse, både på en nationell och på en transnationell nivå. På den nationella nivån har fokus legat på att undersöka hur folkmordet rapporterades och konstruerades i svenska TV-nyheter under den första månaden som detta pågick. På den transnationella nivån har därefter den svenska TV-rapporteringen relaterats till hur ett audiovisuellt historiskt medieminne skapades globalt via produktionen av en rad internationella spel- och dokumentärfilmer med folkmordet som tema. Exakt samma emblematiska bilder som förekom i de initiala TV-sändningarna kom här att återanvändas, men inplacerade i en ny förklarande kontext. En viktig slutsats är därför att dagens transnationellt baserade uppfattning om folkmordet i Rwanda kan spåras tillbaka till den sjunde april 1994, då denna process påbörjades och omedelbart utformades som ett dåligt västerländskt samvete. Det historiska medieminnet utgör med andra ord en del av en västerländsk kultur som har bortrationaliserat den konkreta bakgrunden till folkmordet i Rwanda och istället ersatt denna med en apologetiskt och eurocentrisk historieskrivning.

    The Formation of a Cinema Audience in Sweden, 1915-19292016In: A Companion to Nordic Cinema / [ed] Mette Hjort, Ursula Lindqvist, Wiley-Blackwell, 2016, p. 242-263Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter traces the fluctuating creation of a cinema audience in Sweden in the formative years between 1915 and 1929. Film culture as a whole includes additional elements beyond imagined audiences: produced films, film magazines, reviews, film stars, movie theaters, and censorship. In an effort to balance the industry's perspective, the chapter analyzes interactive source materials where different voices from the imagined audience can be heard: interviews, audience surveys, and various competitions such as talent contests and votes for the best film of the year. It presents the source material in five sections: the institutionalization of a film culture with the building of cinemas, marketing, and the establishment of film magazines; the introduction of school cinema; and the film industry's strategies for cultivating and communicating with its audiences. These also include the audiences' own thoughts and reactions, and the emergence and functions of film stars in Swedish film culture.

    Abstract [en]

    The focus on my short introduction will be on the specific Nordic sense of exploitation during the 80s, which differ quit a lot from its American counterpart. Nordic exploitation could be conceptualized as filmmaking aimed against normative ideas of what constituted “film art” (financially and culturally supported by the Nordic Film Institutes), but also aimed against the prevailing notion of unlawful film violence for the sake of entertainment. This will be exemplified by Swedish film factotum and outcast, Mats Helge Olsson, who managed a virtual film factory in the countryside outside of Lidköping, far from the fashionable film center in Stockholm.

    Moralpanik och lågkultur: Genus- och mediehistoriska analyser 1900-20122013 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under hela 1900-talet har ny populärkultur ofta följts av moralpanik: en stark oro, rädsla och upprördhet. Filmkyssar, Stålmannentidningar och tv-spelsvåld har anklagats för kommersialisering, amerikanisering, sexualisering och våldsförhärligande.

    Den här boken skriver den svenska moralpanikens historia ur ett genusperspektiv, och förklarar hur lågkultur kopplats samman med klass, nationalitet och inte minst med föreställningen om den våldsamme pojken. Ett antal ingående analyser av debatterna om film, video, serietidningar och tv-och datorspel kastar nytt ljus över den kontinuerliga diskussionen om de kulturella normer som omger sex, våld och smak.

    Sexualitet och popularitet: Heteronormativitet i spel- och upplysningsfilm under 1920-talet2008In:  , 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det tidiga 1900-talet, speciellt mellankrigstiden, brukar pekas ut som en tid då grunden läggs för den moderna synen på sexualitet och heteronormativitet, bland annat med en mer distinkt syn på de polariserade begreppen hetero- och homosexualitet. Vägen dit, och synen på kön och sexualitet, var dock inte okomplicerad. I den här sessionen är vi intresserade av hur kön och sexualitet, främst en maskulin kodad sådan, konstituerades, politiserades, visualiserades, samt reglerades med hjälp av populärkulturella föreställningar i filmkulturen, över progressiv sexualupplysning från vänster, till hur detta fastlades i straffbalk och rättspraxis. Etablerandet av en ny diskurs skedde inte enbart uppifrån utan bör snarare förstås på en glidande skala mellan det folkligaste och det formella.Under 1910- och 20-talen utvecklade sig filmen till det klart populäraste visuella massmediet för den svenska allmänheten, med en publik på 40 miljoner varje år, en siffra som vida överskred hur många som kom i kontakt med medicinsk litteratur och de ”moderna” idéer om sexualitet och heteronormativitet som i ett första skede konstituerades där. Inom ramen för svensk filmkultur skapades en rad olika föreställningar – via spelfilmer, upplysningsfilmer och dokumentärfilmer – om sexualitet och genusrelationer som gör att det går att ifrågasätta tidigare forsknings fastlåsning vid hetero-/homosexualitet respektive manligt/kvinnligt vad gäller heteronormativitetens betydelse för den sociala konstruktionen av kön och sexualitet. Här kommer detta sammansatta förhållande att belysas genom en diskussion av ”homosexuella” spel- och upplysningsfilmer, samt av den offentliga diskussionen kring skådespelaren Gösta Ekman.Det svenska kommunistpartiet var mer än ett decennium före riksdagsmajoriteten i att förorda en avkriminalisering av homosexualitet, något partiet envist fortsatte med trots att homosexualitet kriminaliserades i Sovjetunionen under den stalinistiska återgången till kärnfamiljen. En av orsakernas till SKPs tidiga uppslutning kring en psykoanalytiskt färgad förståelse av homosexualitet som tillstånd och sjukdom var närheten till en grupp socialistiska läkarstuderande. Genom en socialistiskt färgad sexualupplysning etablerades nya sanningar kring sexualiteten som fördes rakt in i den organiserade svenska arbetarklassen. Med ingående och detaljerade beskrivningarna av olika former av sexualitet och tydliga gränsdragningarna mellan det normala och det patologiska skapades en modern diskurs kring sexualitet som i högsta grad ingick i det politiska projekt som tydligast knöt an till moderniteten under mellankrigstiden, det kommunistiska.Den straffrättsliga regleringen av samkönad sexualitet präglades av ett sökande efter nya begrepp. När brottslingen/sodomiten i det moderna Sverige avlöstes av den perverse/homosexuelle, uppstod en dragkamp mellan jurister och medicinare om tolkningsföreträdet. ”Homosexuella” borde närmast få vård inom den psykiatriska sektorn, medan ”pseudohomosexuella” borde tas om hand av de rättsvårdande myndigheterna. RFSU, som bildades 1932, var en viktig aktör inför lagändringarna och hade genom sina kontakter inom socialdemokratin stort inflytande på reformarbetet när det gällde sedlighetslagstiftningen. Den framväxande psykoanalysen bidrar till ett viktigt perspektivskifte i och med att sedlighetsbrottet, som definierats som ”en allmän borgerlig ordning och goda seder synnerligen kränkande gärning”, blir ett brott mot person, ett sexualbrott. Genusifieringen av den perverse/a förändras också. Uppfattningen av homosexuella som ett tredje kön, ett mellanting mellan manligt och kvinnligt, etableras och från 1940-talets början börjar även kvinnlig homosexualitet inkorporeras i den straffrättsliga diskursen.

    Abstract [en]

    Nordic cinema is receiving increased prestige in academic studies as well as in the global marketplace. However, one area remains largely unexplored: the relationship between Hollywood and the Nordic cinemas. Our next issue is designed to unravel the typical binary paradigm consisting of hegemonic Hollywood and its European/Nordic counterparts. By emphasizing the heterogeneous and not-always compatible modes of interactions, the articles discuss encounters with Hollywood from a range of perspectives, such as the often critiqued tendency of Hollywood studios to adapt ‘difficult’ art house material for wider audiences; how diverse Nordic directors such as Danish Tomas Vinterberg and Finnish Renny Harlin have ventured into the Hollywood system; and the fact that cultural influences always go both ways, exemplified by analysis of films such as I am Curious Yellow (1967) and Dead Snow(2009), thereby undermining the indigenous basis for the concept of national cinemas.

    Nordic Genre Film: Small Nation Film Cultures in the Global Marketplace2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nordic Genre Film offers a transnational approach to studying contemporary genre production in Nordic cinema. It discusses a range of internationally renowned examples, from Nordic noir such as the television show The Bridge and films like Insomnia (1997) to high concept ‘video generation’ productions such as Iron Sky (2012). Yet, genre, at least in this context, indicates both a complex strategy for domestic and international competition as well as an analytical means to identify the Nordic film cultures’ relationships to international trends. Conceptualizing Nordic genre film as an industrial and cultural phenomenon, other contributions focus on road movies, the horror film, autobiographical films, the quirky comedy, musicals, historical epics and pornography. These are contextualized by discussion of their place in their respective national film and media histories as well as their influence on other Nordic countries and beyond.

    By highlighting similarities and differences between the countries, as well as the often diverse production modes of each country, as well as the connections that have historically existed, the book works at the intersections of film and cultural studies and combines industrial perspectives and in depth discussion of specific films, while also offering historical perspectives on each genre as it comes to production, distribution and reception of popular contemporary genre film.

    Abstract [en]

    Until recently, discussion of Hollywood film has dominated much of the contemporary dialogue on ecocriticism and the cinema. With Transnational Ecocinema, the editors open up the critical debate to look at a larger variety of films from many different countries and cultures. By foregrounding these films with their economic and political contexts, the contributors offer a more comprehensive and nuanced look at the role of place in ecocinema. The essays also interrogate proposed global solutions to environmental issues by presenting an ecocritical perspective on different film and cultural considerations from around the globe.

    Abstract [en]

    In this article, two case studies from 1921–22 and 1971 respectively, are juxtaposed in order to determine change in official attitudes and screening contexts for pornographic films. Focusing in the first case on an exhibitor who in 1922 was convicted of screening an obscene film on three occasions the year before, and in the other case on the range of venues for pornographic films in Malmö the month before the removal of the obscenity clause from the penal code in Swedish law, the authors conclude that public but secret screenings of clandestinely circulated films for all-male audiences did take place in 1921. The question can be raised as to whether women also sometimes attended. In 1971, however, one could see semi-pornographic feature films in regular cinemas and hardcore short films at so called sex clubs which also featured strip and live shows. Referring to a survey published in 1969, in which a slight majority of the informants were against pornography, the authors finally argue that perhaps the authorities had undergone the greatest transformation in attitude, whereas the general public only changed their views slightly between 1921 and 1971.

    Sexual violence, good taste and the education of the cinema audience: Gender and censorship in 1920s Sweden2018In: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, E-ISSN 2042-7905, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 215-232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article makes use of records in the archive of Sweden’s National Board of Film Censorship for a discussion of the censorship of visual representations of sex and violence in films by women directors during the 1920s. From the perspective that Swedish film censorship was utilized to educate and control Swedish cinema audiences, not least concerning taste, the question is posed: how did gender and nationality play a role in the assessment of taste? Focusing on three case studies, namely Karin Swanström’s Kalle Utter (1925), Dorothy Arzner’s Manhattan Cocktail (1928) and Olga Preobrazhenskaya’s The Women of Ryazan (1927) and comparing censorship records with reviews in the daily press, the article demonstrates how nation played a role in the assessment of taste and the decisions to cut these films. The analyses also reveal that the censoring of sexual violence had a tendency to diminish acts such as rape and forced kissing in a narrative as well as on a moral level.
