    Förhistoriska bilder som religionsvetenskaplig källa: Några kriterier att beakta vid tolkningar av religionsikonografiskt material2011In: Chaos: skandinavisk tidsskrift for religionshistoriske studier, ISSN 0108-4453, E-ISSN 1901-9106, Vol. 56, no 2, p. 65-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A challenge when interpreting prehistoric art is that we often lack written source material, a contemporary text written by people who lived in the cultural context that is studied. It is therefore not uncommon to use texts that are younger than the material that we want to interpret. This could lead to misinterpretations and circular arguments. Images are cultural products formed by their contemporaries and influenced by older idea traditions. This article presents four criteria that might be worth taking into consideration when interpreting prehistoric religious iconography. The article discusses how one might proceed to study prehistoric religious art and what could be helpful to keep in mind when analyzing religions by means of pictures and material culture.

    Fristående gymnasieskolor och skolbibliotek: En kvalitativ studie av fristående gymnasieskolors inställning till skolbiblioteksservice och undervisning i informationssökning2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this study is to examine what kind of support there is for school libraries at the selected independent upper secondary schools and how these schools ensure that libraryservices is available to their students and their teachers. The purpose is also to examine what attitudes the administrators of the schools have to school libraries and teaching in information seeking. A qualitative method with interviews was used to fulfil the purpose. As a theoretical basis of the study Loertschers taxonomies of the school library media program and Limbergs three levels of pedagogic research were used and the interviews were analysed with these two theoretical frameworks as a background. The result of the study showed that neither one of the three examinated schools has a school library which means that they use the public library instead. The problematic area is the lack of rules within the school library field and the fact that the independent schools do not show any interest of cooperating with the public library. The conclusion is probably to make an agreement between the schools and the public library and to make the administrators literate about the positive effects which come out of a well provided school library.

    Abstract [en]

    The papers in this issue were first presented at the interdisciplinary conference “Applied Cultural Heritage: How telling the past at historic sites benefits society” held at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, 17-19 November 2010. The conference was organised jointly by Linnaeus University, Kalmar County Museum and Bridging Ages, International Organisation in Historic Environment Education and Time Travels. The aim of the conference was to explore how cultural heritage and stories about the past benefit society today. Given the major changes of society in recent decades and a fast developing globalisation, we proposed that it is no longer self-evident which historic sites are meaningful (and to whom), which stories about the past should be told (and why), and how cultural heritage can best benefit society (and what that means). It was therefore time to ask these questions anew and explore them together with practitioners in the heritage sector from around the world.

    "Se mig, jag är viktig!": Om skyltar och deras bidrag till tolkning av kulturarv2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen syftar till att undersöka hur informationsskyltar bidrar till större förståelse av kulturarv genom att undersöka kontexten samt informationen som ges på skyltarna och hur det genom dessa aspekter skapar perspektiv på platsen. De kulturarv som analyseras är Eketorps fornborg, Kalmar Slott och Södra Ölands odlingslandskap.

      

    Källmaterialet består av kulturarven, deras informationsskyltar och den kontext de verkar i samt hur de samverkar. Här tolkas både den text och de bilder som finns på skyltarna.

      

    Skyltarna finns uppsatta vid kulturarven och verkar i dess kontext. Det är möjligt att tala om att kulturarvet behöver skyltarna, dels för att platsen ska förstås dels för den effekt en skylt åstadkommer. Vidare används skyltarna för att belysa det som är unikt för den specifika platsen, informationen som finns påvisar vad som är viktigt för besökaren att se. Genom att belysa dessa egenskaper, skapas det för besökaren ramar för tolkning av kulturlandskapet. Dessa ramar är det besökaren minns utifrån, samtidigt som de minskar möjligheten för egen tolkning av vad kulturlandskapen har att erbjuda.

    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.

    Sensory marketing

    An effective instrument for libraries?

     

    We are living in a world of constant communication and information and because of that, marketing in general seem to have no distinctive effect. Consumers become overwhelmed by all the advertising messages. Due to this, it is clear that organizations like libraries must create a deeper and more personal connection to increase user satisfaction and foster the use of services, among both users and potential users. One way to achieve this is to make use of all the emotional elements of a product or a service. This make the user perceive the service more as an experience instead of just its functioning. By putting the five senses in focus it´s possible to create an experience and with integration of all five senses more value can be added. Previous studies on this subject are rather thin and therefore the authors found it interesting to investigate whether this phenomenon could be an effective approach for libraries.The purpose of this exploratory study is to investigate how a number of selected libraries are working with stimulation through the five human senses in their marketing.

    The study consists of a qualitative approach. Four personal interviews with informants from four libraries have been conducted.

    The conclusion of this study is that the library does not work with sensory marketing, but for some of the library's activity, sensory marketing could further develop the activities and create a greater value for both the visitors and the libraries. There are some difficulties though, when sensory experience is somewhat subjective and the library is a place for everyone.

    Det bärbara biblioteket: En kvalitativ studie i hur man inom folkbibliotek resonerar kring läsplattan2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this bachelor's thesis is to see how public libraries have adopted the new e-book readers and how the libraries think the e-readers will affect them in the future. There are three different theories in this study which are used to see how the e-book reader influences the libraries as an innovation and as a remediation from the paper book as well as its evolution. The authors have used four qualitative interviews where they have tried to find the most relevant librarians for the purpose. It was found that all the libraries in the study think that they need to learn about the e-reader and its functions to be able to understand users’ needs, but they haven´t agreed if they should have the e-reader as a library loan. The staff seems to think that the e-reader is a good innovation but some criticism has arisen, like the fact that there are technical issues. The libraries hope for more beneficial licenses as the e-book market grows since they today pay a relatively high amount for every downloaded e-book. This can also become an issue when the budget is made.

    Folk på tapeten: Om konstruktionen av folkkonstnären i framställnngar om Bernhard Jönsson i Färgaryd2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen studeras hur konstruktionen av en folkkonstnär sker i två porträtterande texter mot en bakgrund som ifrågasätter logiken i konstruktionen.

    I uppsatsen tecknas en levnadsberättelse över Bernhard Jönsson, Färgaryd. Exempel ges på hans oljemåleri vilket sätts i sammanhang med den modernistiska epoken. Postmodernistiskt idégods jämförs med sydsvenskt bonadsmåleri för att finna likheter. Därnäst granskas två texter som presenterar Bernhard Jönsson som folkkonstnär.

    Författaren belyser genom sina exempel hur konstruktionen av folkkonstnären bygger på ignorerande av vissa fakta. Analyserna av presentationerna visar hur folkkonstnären blir utsatt för generaliseringar, mytifiering och avintellektualisering. Författaren jämför i diskussionen de skilda konsekvenserna av att kategorisera Bernhard Jönssons sentida bonadsmåleri till folkkonsten eller postmodernismen.

    Bruce Springsteen och myten om Amerika: en studie av skivomslagsbilder2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I uppsatsen behandlas omslagsbilderna till Bruce Springsteens Born In The U.S.A samt singelversionen av titelspåret utifrån teorier kring nationellt mytskapande, genus och skivomslagskonst.

    I uppsatsen undersöks hur och i vilket syfte en artist etablerar en image samt hur denna image kan tolkas i flera olika kontexter. Här visas genom semiotisk bildanalys på hur omslagsbilderna driver en aktiv kritisk retorik mot ett politiskt system. Vidare visas på populärkulturens möjligheter att med mytologiserad symbolik och bildspråk aktivt opponera sig mot vedertagna konventioner och sociopolitisk verklighet.

    Den mytologiska retorikens inneboende tvetydighet och förfogandet däröver lyfts fram, liksom hur en artist genom skivomslagsbilden kan formulera sin identitet för att aktualisera och utmana sociala och politiska konventioner och trender.

    Den tidlösa sufismen: Om philosophia perennis föreställningar om sufism och islam2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det västerländska intresset för sufism har under 1900-talet varit stort, liksom antalet böcker som har publicerats rörande ämnet, både inom och utanför den akademiska världen. Samtidigt har en fascination för islams esoteriska dimensioner kunnat påträffas bland flera konstnärer, poeter och intellektuella, vilka inte sällan varit befryndade med philosophia perennis och dess läror, som både inom och utanför de akademiska sammanhangen således har utövat ett visst inflytande. Följande studie inriktas dock på de mest framstående och uttalade företrädarna för philosophia perennis som under 1900-talet dragits till sufismen, med fokus på deras föreställningar och tolkningar av sufism och islam.

    Studiens syfte är att genom en textkritisk och idéhistorisk metod analysera kvalitativt utvalda skrifter av perennialister som ger uttryck för särskilda föreställningar och tolkningar av sufism genom att relatera dessa till teorier om orientalism, occidentalism, globalisering och modernitet. Detta utreds genom problemformuleringarna: Hur framställs och tolkas sufismen av företrädare för philosophia perennis? Varför framställs sufismen så? Vad finner företrädarna tilltalande i islam och sufism?

    Resultaten visar att perennialisterna anspelar på och använder de orientalistiska och occidentalistiska föreställningar som finns i både öst och väst vid presentationerna av islam och sufism, bland annat för att kritisera moderniteten och definiera sina egna ståndpunkter. Dessutom pekar resultaten vidare på att perennialismen både närts och influerats av modernitens allt mer påtagliga globalisering, även om de ofta reagerar polemiskt emot den. Utan att reducera 1900-talets philosophia perennis till enbart en anti-modernistisk idéströmning, fokuserar studien på dess relation till modernitet, globalisering, orientalism och occidentalism, enligt syftet att belysa perennialismens föreställningar om sufism, varför just islam tilltalar företrädarna samt vilka särskilda implikationer ovan nämnda faktorer genererar i deras föreställningar och tolkningar av sufism.

    Bildskapande i ett perspektiv av estetisk läroprocess2013Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna studie diskuteras hur en viss bildpedagogisk praktik som vilar på ett sociokulturellt perspektiv på lärande kan uppfattas av elever avseende lärande och utveckling och hur denna arbetsprocess påverkar deras uppfattning om lärande i och genom bildämnet. Studien utvärderar hur elevers upplevelser och sinneserfarenheter ser ut i samma bildpedagogiska praktik och hur de medieras i deras bildskapande. Metoden är kvalitativ där med hjälp av ostrukturerad intervju och hermeneutiskt tolkande sätt analyseras information som trängs bakom ord och beskrivningar. Resultatet visar att kognitiva och emotionella aspekter i bildämnet i kombination med en flerstämmig och multimodal skolmiljö stimulerar elevernas lärande/kreativitet och utvecklar olika medieringsförmågor. Elever utvecklar bildspråk och skapar kunskap ur dialog genom social interaktion. I bildämnet får elever reflektera sina individuella känslouttryck som skapar många unika tillfällen till självreflektion. Man får olika möjligheter att använda sig av alla sinnen för att utveckla nya kreativa/skapande inlärningsmetoder. Bildförståelsen baseras på semiotiska grunder där man skiljer på uttryck och innehåll i en bild och upplever den som ett teckensystem. Man lär sig uppfatta detaljer och helheter och utvecklar förmågan att kunna tänka visuellt där man förbinder/förenar sin visuella förmåga med sin tänkande förmåga.

    Exhibiting Scandinavian culture: The national museums of Denmark and Sweden2012In: Popularizing National Pasts: 1800 to the Present / [ed] Stefan Berger, Chris Lorenz & Billie Melman, London: Routledge, 2012, 1, p. 169-195Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Popularizing National Pasts is the first truly cross-national and comparative study of popular national histories, their representations, the meanings given to them and their uses, which expands outside the confines of Western Europe and the US. It draws a picture of popular histories which is European in the full sense of this term. One of its fortes is the inclusion of Eastern Europe. The cross-national angle of Popularizing National Pasts is apparent in the scope of its comparative project, as well as that of the longue durée it covers. Apart from essays on Britain, France, and Germany, the collection includes studies of popular histories in Scandinavia, Eastern and Southern Europe, notably Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Armenia, Russia and the Ukraine, as well as considering the US and Argentina. Cross-national comparison is also a central concern of the thirteen case studies in the volume, which are, each, devoted to comparing between two, or more, national historical cultures. Thus temporality –both continuities and breaks- in popular notions of the past, its interpretations and consumption, is examined in the long continuum. The volume makes available to English readers, probably for the first time, the cutting edge of Eastern European scholarship on popular histories, nationalism and culture.

    National Museums Making History in A Diverse Europe2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is the summary policy report of the Eunamus project. Drawing together findings from all of the other project reports and conferences, it reflects upon the way histories are constructed and deployed in Europe’s national museums. It sets out to address two questions: In what ways do national museums, and the histories they display, contribute to social division and cohesion? How might national museums be a force for greater social cohesion in Europe in the future? The report discusses how national museums perform, interpret and narrate meaningful pasts and how these acts of communication are perceived by visitors and citizens. The report concludes with eight policy implications:

    • National museums need to be autonomous creative institutions
    • National museums need to understand and be open about their performances
    • National museums need to overcome national constraints
    • National museums need to develop and share tools for establishing bridge-building narratives
    • National museums need to review their impact on perceptions of citizenship
    • National museums need to reach new audiences
    • Regional and local museums hold great potential for international bridge building
    • National museums can act as forums for contested issues

    The three-year research programme, EuNaMus – European National Museums: Identity Politics, the Uses of the Past and the European Citizen, is coordinated at Tema Q at Linköping University (www.eunamus. eu). EuNaMus explores the creation and power of the heritage created and presented at European national museums to the world, Europe and its states, as an unsurpassable institution in contemporary society. National museums are defined and explored as processes of institutionalized negotiations where material collections and displays make claims and are recognized as articulating and representing national values and realities. Questions asked in the project are why, by whom, when, with what material, with what result and future possibilities are these museums shaped.

    Ariska idoler: Den indoeuropeiska mytologin som ideologi och vetenskap2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    By using ancient texts, medieval documents, philological observations, and archaeological artifacts, scholars have reconstructed a prehistorical world and religion. The people who upheld this culture have been named, inter alia, "Indo-Europeans", "Aryans", "Japhetites" and "Wiros". Yet, these people have not left any texts, no artifacts can with certainty be ascribed to them, nor do we know any individual "Indo-European" by name. Despite this, scholars have, with help from daring historical, linguistic and archaeological reconstructions, persistently tried to reach the ancient Indo-Europeans in hopes of finding the foundations for their own culture and religion. The main hypothesis of this thesis is that these pre-historical peoples have not occupied modern man because they were important as historical agents, but because they were, with the words of Claude Lévi-Strauss, "good to think". The interest in "the Indo-Europeans", "the Aryans" and their "Others" — which latter group has at times been described as Jews, Savages, Orientals, Aristocrats, priests, matriarchal farmers, martial pastoralists, French liberals, and/or German nationalists — was (and still is) motivated by a wish to construct alternatives to those identities given by tradition. The study of the Indo-Europeans, their culture and religion, has been a way to produce new concepts, new identities and thus an alternative future. Chapter 1 describes how the concept of an Indo-European entity evolved during the 18th and 19th centuries out of speculations on the identity of different people mentioned in the Bible, out of the discovery of similarities between Indic and European languages, and out of romantic ideas about race and Volk. Chapter 2 deals with the first paradigm in the Indo-European studies, the Nature-Mythological school, and its relationship to Christianity, anti-Semitism and liberal-bourgeois mentality. Chapter 3 discusses the "primitivization" of the "Indo-Europeans" that developt at the end of the 19th century due to nationalism and vitalistic philosophy. Chapter 4 analyses the relationship between the study of Indo-Germanic or Aryan religion in the Third Reich and Nazi ideology. Chapter 5 treats theories that were created as alternative to Nazi scholarship by fascist, Catholic scholars. That chapter also deals with the developments in the study of Indo-European religion and culture during the last half of the 20th century

    Greed and the nature of evil: Tolkien versus Wagner2010In: Journal of Religion and Popular Culture, ISSN 1703-289X, E-ISSN 1703-289X, Vol. 22, no 2, p. Article ID: 7-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars studying J.R.R. Tolkien have often chosen to ignore the influence of Richard Wagner on Tolkien’s opus. This article starts out with showing how profound this influence was and continues by analysing Tolkien’s and Wagner’s common interest in the Old Norse Mythology of the Vikings. Examining the recently published The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún by Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings, the author penetrates and compares the importante themes of greed and evilness in these books and in Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen. The author takes up for discussion the radically different politic views of the two artists and indicates how this is important for their respective view of power and greed.

    Abstract [en]

    The conditions for the creation, distribution and reception of myths have changed drastically during the late modern era. Do myths exist at all in the contemporary, Western societies? If so, where are they and what do we then mean by “myth”? The article is a sketchy overview of different areas where myths might be found, and the author simultaneous tries to discuss relevant definitions of myth. From the conceptualization of myth in the Enlightenment and Romantic era the article moves on to discuss the reception of mythology in New Age spirituality, the invention of Nationalist mythologies and the issue of myths in the products of the Culture industry and commerce. The main focus is on the debatable issue wither or not the liberal, “post-politic” discourse of contemporary Westerns democracies – a discourse often presented as drained of any fantastic rhetoric and only concerned with practical, instrumental decisions – could be said to contain myths.
