    Jacob Letterstedt, den brittiska imperialismen och de letterstedtska donationerna2020In: Historisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0345-469X, E-ISSN 2002-4827, Vol. 140, no 3, p. 385-419Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Jacob Letterstedt, born Lallerstedt, is best known in Sweden for his charitable foundation Letterstedtska Foreningen, which funds Nordic cultural projects. Born at the end of the eighteenth century, he left Sweden at the age of 23, escaping debts and failing business ventures. He went to London, changed his name, and joined the first group of settlers the British government sent to the Cape Province in southern Africa. Through his marriage to a widow of Boer descent who owned a large estate, he became established as a landowner and important merchant, but also as a slave owner. Exploiting his workforce and business contacts, his fortune grew as he sold flour to passing ships and the increasing population in Cape Town, as well as exporting beer to Europe. He entered the local political arena upon obtaining British citizenship, but his Swedish background also proved valuable as he was appointed Swedish (later Swedish-Norwegian) consul. Through this position, he could spread information about the conditions in the Cape Province and promote Swedish trade with South Africa and beyond. In addition to mercantile endeavors, his wealth grew both from compensation for his slaves after the abolition of slavery and from the work of "free" laborers of "many nationalities" in the fields or in his mills and breweries. In a global transnational perspective, Jacob Letterstedt was an active participant in British imperialism. He acted to take advantage of this for his own business, but also for national interests. As Swedish or SwedishNorwegian consul, he paved the way for many Swedish industrial capitalists, ship-owners and in some sense also workers to profit from British imperialism in South Africa. Through his donations to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and to the part of his fortune that would become Letterstedtska Foreningen, based on the work of slaves and "free" laborers, he also contributed to Nordic culture and research. Now we know the origins of the money.

    Labor migration as a prelude to World War I1996In: The international migration review, ISSN 0197-9183, E-ISSN 1747-7379, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 875-900Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At the same time as the political tensions increased in Europe around 1900, an international labor market was developing. More and more proletarians from different parts of the continent searched for labor opportunities in the center of the agrarian and industrial capitalism. In several countries, including Russia, capitalists more and more actively recruited labor migrants for seasonal work. The labor migrants became a political issue as a part of the trade negotiations between Germany and Russia. Also, the Austrian colonization and political expansion in the Balkans can be looked upon in a perspective of (labor) migration. Class and ethnic conflicts coincided and escalated into an international conflict.

    Landlords, Land Companies, Farmers, and Migrant Workers in Global Agrarian Capitalism until the First World War2005In: Przeglad Polonijny, ISSN 0137-303X, Vol. XXXI, no 1, p. 67-86Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I want to outline some perspectives of the political economy of the mass migration, which can be connected to agrarian capitalism as a world wide and long lasting process. One of its starting points is the changing nature of landowning from vague definitions of ownership to a distinct individual one, whereby land turned into a commodity on a growing land market. The process started in England and continued in the northwestern parts of the European continent, and then it was developed in areas, where Europeans settled as landowners.

    Another starting point is the proletarianization process that is connected to the changing nature of land ownership, meaning that sons and daughters faced growing difficulties to take over the family farm but instead had to turn into laborers or try to find land somewhere else. Thus, the mass migration that leads to settling and homesteading in another land - may it be North America, South Africa, Australia or Bosnia - should be looked upon as a way of avoiding proletarianization but instead keeping the social position as a farmer. Often that mass migration included ejection of native peoples, who did not practice individual and private land owning principles.

    Some of the farmers - the agrarian bourgeoisie - were one of the foundations of capitalist modes of production, and they employed farm workers permanently or for seasonal work in large numbers. These workers migrated to areas with large-scale commercial farming. Where the large migrant settlers/homesteaders demanded large numbers of workers but could not get them as for instance in the southern parts of North America and South Africa, forced labor was recruited in different ways. In those cases, the class relations were racialized, indicating that mass migration often must be connected to an analysis of ethnic relations. I will also touch upon the issue of the gendered and generational perspective of mass migration within a growing, worldwide agrarian capitalism.

    Per Nyström, det svenska historikersamfundet och den fjättrade Clio2012In: Scandia, ISSN 0036-5483, Vol. 78, no 1, p. 35-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Per Nyström was one of a group of young Lund academics who in the 1930s developed historical materialism as a scholarly theory and method for empirical research.  The same period saw Nyström begin work on a doctoral thesis on urban industrial workers before 1800, but his studies were interrupted by a long stint in office in the Swedish government.  He only completed his thesis in 1955, and he only really first came to prominence in the world of research in the 1970s, when he returned to research on his retirement. His earlier research was republished and did much to enthuse a younger generation of historians inspired by historical materialism.

    Nyström’s thesis was commended both by its examining committee and by the new generation of historians in the 1970s, despite Nyström himself pointing out that the thesis was only ‘a fragment of the planned monograph’. In considering why the thesis did not turn out as Nyström hoped, I show here that it was his historical-materialist ambitions that were not realized: in the event, rather than being the promised study of urban industrial workers, it was limited to a disquisition on Das Kapital in the class relations that underpinned early industrial capitalism. Moreover, he had crammed a number of liberal terms into the historical-materialist introduction – a brilliant description of early mercantile capitalism in Western Europe – which he had otherwise completed back in the 1930s.

    The main question addressed here is why his thesis turned out as it did. The answer can only be tentative, but I would argue that its disposition can be ascribed not only to a lack of time, but also to the Cold War, which had an impact on the social climate even in the Social Democratic Sweden of the 1950s. The very limited work that exists on Swedish historical research in the immediate post-war period has completely disregarded the Cold War’s effects. Taking as a starting-point Peter Novick’s analysis of the Cold War’s significance for the marginalization of historical-materialist research in the US, I argue that the corresponding process in Sweden may explain why Nyström did not complete his analysis of ‘the making of the Swedish working class’.  The support and encouragement extended in the 1930s to Nyström as a historical materialist by his mentor in Lund  – the leading figure of the ‘liberal-democratic paradigm’ (Odén) and in 1928 the founder of Scandia, Lauritz Weibull – was to have no equivalent during the Cold War.  On the contrary. There was not the least room for historical-materialist-inspired research then. It would not be until the 1970s that historical-materialist literature on methods of production and class relations began to appear on history department reading lists (not least Per Nyström’s articles from the 1930s in Atheneum and Scandia, along with his thesis), that these articles had any successors in Scandia, or that historical materialism would once again be accepted by the academic world as the basis for historical scholarship. By analysing of Nyström’s thesis, I argue here for the importance of understanding the state of historical research and historiography in Sweden at a time when the ‘liberal-democratic paradigm’ had a hegemonic grip on Sweden, and even historians laboured in the shadow of the Cold War.

    Polish Migration to Denmark and Sweden before World War 12008In: Przeglad Polonijny, ISSN 0137-303X, Vol. XXXIII, no 4, p. 63-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although Polish migration to Denmark and Sweden in the early 20th century was not very numerous and was limited in time (1890-1929), it is worth a study, because it had a specific and odd characteristic. Labour and seasonal migration dominated totally. Children of peasants left their homes to earn money, which they sent home, and the families could survive and reproduce themselves of part of the Polish peasant class. Most migrants were young women, who came from Galizia and Russian Poland, but also some men came from Russian Poland.

    In this article, I criticize the existing view in Denmark and Sweden that Polish migrants were wage depressors and/or strike breakers. Instead, I argue, that a vast majority of them made a labour reserve. Employers in Denmark and Sweden actively recruited and contracted Polish workers for seasonal work that native workers were not willing or able to perform on offered conditions. The employers sent the Polish workers back home when there was no more demand for their labour during the winter season, and they recruited workers again when extra labour was demanded next spring. Thus, the Polish workers could spend winter time with their families, and Danish and Swedish employers did not have to pay the reproduction cost of its labour reserve, when they could not put the Polish workers to do profitable labour.

    Abstract [sv]

    Boken handlar om två flyktinggrupper, som kom till Sverige i slutet av andra världskriget och hur de slussades ut på den sydsvenska arbetsmarknaden. Den behandlar dels baltiska flyktingar, som kom till Sverige på senhösten 1944, dels polska kvinnor som överlevde koncentrationslägret Ravensbrück och räddades till Sverige genom Röda Korsets försorg på senvåren 1945. I boken behandlas också en anmärkningsvärd riksdagsdebatt om flyktingar år 1944, där flyktingar utmålas som lycksökare i det Sverige som lyckats hålla sig utanför andra världskriget.

    Women's work and politics in WWI America: The Munsingwear family of Minneapolis2018 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    By World War I, the Northwestern Knitting Company was the largest workplace for gainfully employed women in Minnesota and the largest garment factory in the United States. Lars Olsson investigates the interplay of class, gender, marital status, ethnicity, and race in the labor relations at the factory, illuminating the lives of the women who worked there. Representing thirty nationalities, particularly Scandinavian, the women worked long hours for low pay in roles that were strictly divided along ethnic and gendered lines, while the company directors and stockholders made enormous profits off of their labor. Management developed paternal strategies to bind the workers to the company and preempt unionization, including bonus programs, minstrel shows, and a pioneering industrial welfare program. With the US entry into the war, the company was contracted to produce underwear for soldiers, and management expanded the metaphor of "the Munsingwear Family" to construct not just company loyalty, but national loyalty. This book sheds new light on women's labor in WWI and the lives of textile workers in the United States.
