    Moderna tider: modernitet i Visbys bouppteckningar och press 1880-19102001Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It is a difficult task to define the little word “modernity”. One may argue quite a lot about what modernity is as well as when modernity breaks trough. The burgess class was the group who initiated modernity in most cases. Since these people mainly dwelled in the cities it was in the cities were modernity started. The creation of an industry demanded new methods of working. Discipline, rationality and a new conscience of time followed as consequences of the industry. Modernity reached small towns and countryside slowly and the old structures were hard to break down. There are of course different aspects of modernity as the modernity of material life, the modernity of ideas and the modernity of culture. The modernity of material life tends to reach people before that of ideas or culture. In the small city of Visby existed many parts of modernity in the material life between 1880-1910. Telephones reached the city very early just like sewing machines or bicycles. Electricity lighted streets and homes just a few years after the turn of the century. Modern things seem to have reached the shopkeepers first, even before the upper class. The paper “Gotlands Allehanda” held a liberal view towards new ideas or writers and seems to have supported the enlightenment of the commons. The modern drama gained slowly ground among the many comedies on the local stage. But through the papers can we find many articles that indicate that Visby was a bit backward in many ways. Hogs were still housed in the streets and there were problems with clean water as well as public sanitary. So in many ways Visby before 1910 was modern on the surface and the old structures gave way only with difficulty.

    Att fostra och forma en kommande generation svenskar : Folkskolans Barntidning 1892-1914 / I vansinnets gränsland : En studie av de normativa gränsdragningarna vid Vadstenacentralhospital 1849–18582003Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att fostra och forma en kommande generation svenskar : Folkskolans Barntidning 1892–1914 Av Cecilia Ahlqvist

    Runt sekelskiftet 1900 synliggjordes den privata sfären mer och ett större intresse för att inplantera hemidealen i samhället märktes. Diskussioner fördes om barns uppfostran samt omhändertagande och särskiljande av barn som inte följde gängse normer. Det fanns redan färdiga ideal om hur ett gott barn skulle formas. Likaså fanns idéer om hur föräldrarna skulle agera för att ge barnet de bästa förutsättningarna. Genom hjälpinsatser, råd och anvisningar från bl.a. läkare och pedagoger skulle ett gott samhälle skapas.

    Jag vill studera om dessa tidstypiska idéer uttrycks i Folkskolans barntidning och i så fall på vilket sätt. Kan det vara så att tidningen var något mer än ”god nöjesläsning”? Vad hade redaktionen för åsikter och föreställningar? Vad ville man egentligen uppnå med sitt material? För att se ifall tidningen var ett verktyg i uppfostringsprocessen har jag formulerat följande frågeställningar;

    • Hur skilde tidningen på skötsamma och ouppfostrade barn?
    • Hur skulle barnen uppfostras till hälsa och hygien?
    • På vilket sätt handlade förnuftiga vuxna?
    • Hur användes historien som normerande?

    Min förväntning är att dessa frågor kan täcka området som rör just uppfostran. De kommer att ge en bild av hur tidningen tyckte att barn var och hur de borde vara. Vilka egenskaper framhävs och vad bör inte komma fram? De råd som ges angående hälsa och hygien anser jag kunna visa hur man ville kontrollera hela barnet och dess tillvaro. Att jag väljer att föra över fokus på vuxna i de sista frågeställningarna beror på att jag vill se ifall en uttalad barntidning även kunde ha åsikter om hur en god vuxen var. Troligt är att de inte ville att de idéer de förespråkade motverkades av okunniga föräldrar. Det visar även hur barnen reagerade på den normerande vuxne. Jag tror att dessa frågeställningar kommer att vara tillräckliga för att nå tidningens syfte och mål.

    Besvär!: Om motståndet hos två tvångssammanslagna kommuner i samband med kommunblocksreformen2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate why the two Swedish municipalities of Frykerud and Östmark were the only municipalities in Värmland that were forcibly merged by the state during the ”Municipality block reform” of 1971, and whether local identities played a role in the resistance against this reform. 

        The study is designed as a comparative case study and builds on both history and political science to analyze the topic from a broader perspective. Based on the research situation three theoretical theses have been formulated, the durability of which will be tested in the analysis part of the essay.

        The study notes that Frykeruds resistance against the ”Municipality block reform” started when the reform prevented a planned retirement home construction in the municipality. In the analytical part of the essay, the author discusses how the discontent can be interpreted as symptomatic of bourgeois centralization resistance, as well as being due to the fact that traditional, local self-government as a political subject was perceived as threatened. In Östmark, the "Municipality block reform" developed into a political struggle between the reformist Social Democrats and the "reform-skeptical" conservative parties. The battle started with disagreements over the completions of investments in the municipality.

        In the analysis section, the hypotheses previously formulated have been tested, and the author also formulates a new hypothesis regarding the local communities and local identities' political role in the resistance against the "Municipality block reform".

    Statarna: En undersökning av artiklar ur tidningen Lantarbetaren2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay is about the farmworkers that worked within a system of payment. This consisted in one part of a small amount of salary as payment in money and the other two was for food and a place to live. This type of payment made it problematic to see how much a worker actually earned. It was especially hard to compare with an industrial worker when the houses where run down and the food had a bad quality. Focus for this essay is what was discussed in the union’s weekly newspaper “Lantarbetaren” about the farmworkers between the years 1938-1942 when the debate was most intense, which it was in the last years, were the system of this type of payment was obsolete.

    The essay is focused in three areas, the buildings that the workers lived in and its living condition, the work condition and the workers right to organize.

    Historiebruk eller missbruk?: Sverigedemokraterna och folkhemmet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Folkhemmet eller i alla fall den den idealiserade bilden av folkhemmet har i Sverige haft och fortsätter ha en viss nostalgisk prägel över sig som en slags höjdpunkt av framtidshopp och samhällsbyggande och har kanske framförallt kommit att associeras med de s.k. rekordåren efter andra världskriget. Precis som 1950-talets USA, och Tysklands Wirtschaftwunder så är det en period som associeras med rekordartad tillväxt, låg arbetslöshet och utbyggnad av samhällsservicen.3 Folkhemmet har blivit själva symbolen för landet Sverige.Därför har den också tacksamt låtit sig lånas till olika versioner av historiebruk.

    Socialdemokraterna (SAP) har förstås gärna använt sig av folkhemmet - detta gamla intyg på regeringsduglighet men ckså de Nya Moderaterna under Fredrik Reinfeldt och Per Schlingmann använde sig gärna av Socialdemokratiskt bildspråk från rekordåren, tog vissa nyckelbegrepp och omförhandlade betydelsen i dessa osv. I denna uppsats kommer vi dock att med hjälp av Ulf Zanders historiebrukstypologi undersöka Sverigedemokraterna och deras stundtals kontroversiella historiebruk av folkhemmet, detta kommer att sättas i relation till sverigedemokraternas historiska utvecklingskurva i strävan efter allt mer legitimitet och ideologisering.

    Beteende eller sinnessjukdom?: Psykiatri och behandling vid Mariebergs sjukhus mellan 1930-19502015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is interested in Swedish psychiatry during the period between 1930-1950,localized to Mariebergs hospital in Sweden. The purpose of this paper has been to testSjöstroms evidence of the pattern that he used to create three analytical concepts, roughlytranslated to; morally educative discipline-treatment, the production process and the idealinstitution citizen. Sjöström motivates that his concepts gives insight into one aspect of thepsychiatric expansion between 1860-1960 as well as creates an understanding of psychiatryas an institution. The source material for this paper has been patients' medical notes writtenby the chief physician of the institution. Via a method which mainly different from Sjöstromin its selection, categorization and more thorough presentation, this paper has seen the samepatterns which Sjöström has created his three concepts from. The ideal institution citizen,defined by its well behaved and calm behaviour emerges also in this papers quantitativecompilation of qualitative data as the clear majority. The morally educative disciplinetreatment,treatments and punishments that focuses on creating an acceptable behaviourrather than the treatment of insanity itself, can be seen in the adjective behaviouraldescriptions of the type well-behaved / badly-behaved which are dominant. The focus in thejournals is behaviour rather than mental decease symptoms such as hallucinations andtreatment is based on unaccepted behaviour rather than symptoms. Also, the sequential orderthat exists between badly-behaved behaviour and treatments, and well-behaved behaviourand rewards shows the focus on behaviour which the concept is based on. The previous tworesults together is the two parts of Sjöströms production process, that trough the morallyeducative discipline-treatment the institution creates an acceptable, quiet and well behavedideal institution citizen were the mental decease becomes secondary.

    ‘We’re all Avengers now’: Community-building, civil religion and nominal multiculturalism in Marvel Comics’ Fear Itself2016In: European Journal of American Culture, ISSN 1466-0407, E-ISSN 1758-9118, Vol. 35, no 2, 77-95 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses Marvel Comics’ 2011 crossover ‘event’ ‘Fear Itself’. It suggests that the event argues for national unity in a time of crisis by mobilizing America’s self-definition as a multicultural nation as well as civil religion. The article discusses ‘Fear Itself’s’ attempted construction of national myth through looking at the way it represents the media, US multiculturalism (in a generalized form that nominally includes non-white groups while frequently failing to account for them) and ‘sacralized’ civil religious aspects of US history. Especially salient in this connection is the event’s engagement with the Roosevelt years. In doing so, it is argued, ‘Fear Itself’ presents an Americanness that relies on an idealized and nostalgic notion of the so-called ‘Greatest Generation’, a tightly knit, self-sacrificing civil society that supposedly came into being during that period.

    Var Karl en karlakarl?: En läroboksanalys med syftet att jämföra hur Karl XII har framställts i svenska läroböcker över en tidsperiod på 100 år.2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats kommer jag att behandla Karl XII och hur denne har framställts i läroböcker från 1884-2003. I min uppsats har jag valt att behandla 14 läroböcker, som i sin tur jag delat upp i tre stycken epoker: Epok I, Epok II och Epok III. Analysen i sin tur har utgått i från tre teman. Vilket jag med hjälp av ett diskursanalytiskt förhållningssätt försökt redogöra kring hur författarna framställt Karl XII, hans personlighet, centrala skeenden samt värdeladdade ord kring Karl. Analysen kommer fokusera på uttalanden från författarna som kan anses vara värderande, samt koppla författarens ställningstagande och sedan se om det stämmer överens med den rådande historieforskning som gällde när läroboken skrevs. Genom att behandla mina epoker i en kronologisk ordning är tanken att ett förändringsmönster i diskursen ska uppstå. Samt att se huruvida läroboksförfattarna faller ifrån opartiskhet och visar sina personliga värderingar i texterna. Tanken med denna uppsats är alltså att se ett utvecklingsmönster, tillika skåda hur pass mycket en författare låter sina egna tankar belysa en lärobok.

    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.

    En studie i historiebruk: Analys av reseguider från Estniska SSR2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The use of history is the concept of people using and analyzing history in the society for various purposes. Study in this area has largely emerged because there are many different reasons for people and societies to be interested in history. To investigate the use of history, a historical material needs to be present in some form. With this study, I intend to show how older tourist guidebooks can provide such materials of study and therefore I use travel guidebooks about Tallinn released under the USSR (Estonian SSR) between the years 1960 to 1990. The analysis is based on Klas-Göran Karlsson's (Professor of History) typology of seven different uses of history: scientific, existential, moral, ideological, political, educational, non-use of history and a commercial use of history. This paper has highlighted several different historical dimensions in travel guides and reasons why they can be analyzed. Results of this study show that the travel guides can act as a medium for existential orientation and that they can function as a communicational, educational and an interest raising tools. They can also develop a critical approach towards historical events and help to "sell" history through various commercial products. Thus, tourist guidebooks can be used and analyzed more systematically by professionals, interested individuals or a group who feel the need, desire or interest in the way history can be used in their practices.

    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I have investigated the change of letter-writing Swedish Americans' life stories during the period 1927-1938. The purpose of this study was to investigate the fate of Swedish Americans' life stories in the years 1927-1938. In order to make the study of life stories, I have assumed that in those  judgments about the past / present and future as well as assessments of the relationship to their homeland and the new land can be found in correspondence with the home country. To study the life story, I have seen these as indicators of the level from which the following questions are formulated:

    * What was the dominant information contained in the Swedish-American newspapers during the different periods?

    * What are the flashbacks and the present and future assessments  ​​Swedish Americans made in the letters and life stories? *

    *How do the writers looked at the Swedish and the U.S society in the letters and life stories?

    Research on Swedish Americans' situation in the years 1937-1938 is meticulously with. Has the Swedish American situation studied, it has usually been in a larger study and then have only appeared as parentheses. Research Position regarding emigration and the Great Depression is widespread as separate phenomena. Unite the two, studied Swedish Americans during the recession years are open research issues to be found. Theoretically, my talk dealt with concepts such as identity, culture and narrative elements. The method has been hermeneutic. The study I have concluded that America was a big disappointment for those who just around the Great Depression arrived. Those who went over in the 1920's experienced a few years of good times, but ended abruptly in depression, as reflected in the letters. Exceptions are the unestablished working women who felt they got better. Of the material to judge the weighted otherwise these people the Swedish society more than the U.S.. Often they felt cheated, deceived and betrayed. While they ended up in the crisis, America provided the beginnings of a welfare state building in Sweden. Some returned to Sweden, but many could not afford to do so. The of the hardest hit by the crisis and thus had the greatest reason to yearn for the security of Sweden were often settled in America until the crisis subsided and they could work together money for a passage ticket. Without fully able to confirm it, it seems that the growing security of the new Socialist society in Sweden became more attractive to those who traveled close to the depression and for those most affected.

    The Swedish-Americans who had been a long time in America often had a more hopeful attitude, they had known of the bad times in America before. The Swedish-Americans who had been better off had also often a more hopeful attitude. Swedish-Americans who were involved in agriculture seems more have waited out the hard times in America instead of returning to Sweden. They had a more individual approach and in many cases had gone to America as a result of land hunger. Their prospects looked at this way, different than what many of those gainfully employed prospect did. The employed worker perspectives were often shorter and therefore had not the same long-term strategies and hence the same need to confirm the American dream for their environment. Their approach was also more collectivist and were therefore more attracted to the political direction of Sweden took over what the farmers of Swedish-Americans were. In the essay once I have seen how a predominantly hopeful and reflective approach (1927-1930) of its presence in history, the present and the future is shifting into question (1931-1934) and then to action (1935-1938) in his letters home to Sweden. During 1927-1930 presents the most Swedish Americans reflective biographies. They believe the period on American society and looks still a future where, despite the fact that The Great Depression begins to develop. 1931-1934 is considering a questioning attitude in life stories. An increasing number of Swedish-Americans drafted that country they were in did not live up to their dreams and their life story did not include the American dream. 1935-1938, it is not questioning that characterizes the letter writing, but it's determination and transparency. Protective barrier to the home country is gone and the writers acknowledge the greater the distress they experienced. To Sweden attributed the home in terms that they have decided to either stay in America, that they now lived through the worst and that everything can only get better or they write home about her defeat and tells us that they intend to return to Sweden as soon as they can. The relationship to American society against the Swedish follow in much this. During the first period is approaching, most Swedish-American writers in American society. The result is that they are also distancing themselves from Swedish society. During the period of two distances itself a major part of Swedish-Americans away from American society as well as those at the same moment an expression of overtures to the Swedish society. In period three when the goal awareness strengthened by the Swedish-American writers and society business cycle returned upward, it was a third of the writers who clearly distanced themselves from American society. Some of these returned to Sweden, others were not able to do it even though it was their desire.The drawback with the letters as source material has been that the poorest Swedish Americans not been seen partly as a result out of that they had no money for postage and letters and it may have been because they were not literate. Furthermore, the disadvantage of the material to the Swedish-Americans who had an active approach to his Swedish background are not illustrated. These are disadvantages because out there can give a distortion of the source material. The last problem has been partially mitigated by the source material is supplemented with life stories that are recorded afterwards. After all, it has been possible to find biographies of the letters but in the deepest crisis distorted letters to a large extent to the type identities of other Swedish-Americans. This is particularly evident in the letter writer who has a short expectation horizon, ie professional workers. Some time after the crisis, depicting the letters again their own life stories.

    Arrendatorerna på Aspa Bruk 1851-1930: En arbetskraftreserv med andra villkor till det patriarkala systemet än yrkesarbetarna2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte har varit att studera maktordningen på Aspa Bruk genom arrendatorerna under tidsperioden 1851-1930. En hegemonisk teori har använts som utgångspunkt.

    I uppsatsen framkommer det att arrendatorerna inte var någon homogen grupp och att de befann sig i systemet på andra villkor än yrkesarbetarna. Relationen arrendator och bruksledning var uppbyggd kring arrendekontraktet som begränsade handlingsmöjligheterna för arrendatorn. Kontraktet ersatte således till viss del patronens ständiga närvaro. I uppsatsen liknar jag det sociala systemet på bruket med en triangel utan bas. De horisontella relationerna är frivilliga medan de lodräta är ett måste att förhålla sig till.
