    The formation of Swedish independent local lists, 1990-2015: A study into the sources of non-diffusion2017In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 42, no 5, p. 505-536Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this comparative case-study, elements of diffusion theory are used to examine local conditions conducive to political organization in terms of independent local lists (ILLs). Empirical evidence supports the formulation of three hypotheses for future and more systematic research into the problem: a hypothesis of size, an elite-hypothesis and a mobilization-hypothesis. Although several factors are likely to play a role, the results suggest particularly that ILLs are less likely to occur in localities lacking historical legacies in terms of popular mobilization.

    Voting by income: Political culture of two swedish municipalities 1860-19302012In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 132, no 2, p. 288-294Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln belyser Erik Nydahls avhandling I fyrkens tid som tar avstamp i en omdiskuterad, om än relativt väl utforskad, fråga: hur formades svensk politisk kultur i övergången från jordbrukarsamhället till det moderna industrisamhället? Viktiga faktorer i det sammanhanget var att svensk industrialisering i många avseenden ägde rum utanför de framväxande storstadsregionerna, att jordbruksnäringen samtidigt spelade en fortsatt viktig roll under lång tid och att urbaniseringsprocessen internationellt sett var mera utdragen.

    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".

    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.

    Folkpartiets syn på svensk säkerhets- och utrikespolitik 1956-1974: En jämförande analys av Folkpartiets syn på svensk säkerhets- och utrikespolitiska frågor i förhållande till regeringen2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The socialdemokrats’ long possession of government power from the 1930’s to 1976 gave them the opportunity to put their stamp on Swedish domestic and foreign affairs in the shadow of the cold war. The government policy in security and foreign affairs, therefore, was that of the socialdemokratic party. The stance of the government has been researched, but it lacks focus on the opposition. The purpose of this paper is to analyse Folkpartiet´s view of security and foreign affairs in comparison with government policy. The study is built around three years that are case studied: 1956, 1965 and 1974. More specific is the Folkpartiet’s stance in the foreign affairs debates in the parliament during those specific years that are being investigated. For this purpose, five questions have been formulated: What kind of goals did the Folkpartiet have with security and foreign policy during the investigated period of time? Did there exist an agreement between the goals of the government and the Folkpartiet? Did the Folkpartiet mark their own line in specific security and foreign policy questions? On which specific security and foreign policy questions was the Folkpartiet in agreement with the government? Finally, does Folkpartiet’s present stance in favour of Swedish membership in NATO have any historical substance?

    The study shows that the Folkpartiet are in agreement with the government’s policy of being neutral during the whole investigated period of time. The Folkpartiet are constantly critical towards the Soviet Union, defend Israel in the state’s conflict with neighbouring countries and favour third world countries. The parties are in most agreement when the government decides to side with either part in a conflict. When the government decides not to do so, it causes criticism from the Folkpartiet.

    Reaktionerna på Tage Erlanders metalltal: En analys av aktörers identitet och intressen2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Prime Minister, Tage Erlander, made a speech on the 22 of August 1961 in which he dismissed speculation that Sweden was seeking to abandon its neutral stance and non-alignment in foreign policy with a view to requesting membership of the European Economic Community. The reason was that the EEC was supposed to have a political part where a connection with NATO should have existed. This speech led to a domestic discussion which has been called the most intense debate of foreign affairs in recent history. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the reactions of the other parliamentary parties to Erlander’s speech. The theoretical points draw from social constructivism, which is being operationalised into states’ identity and interests. These interests are states’ physical survival, autonomy and economic well-being. All of these three interests were present in Erlander’s speech.

    The study shows that the Centre Party (Centerpartiet) was in agreement with Erlander’s stance and coincided that it was impossible to reconcile membership of the EEC with the state’s neutral stance. Both the Social Democrats (Socialdemokraterna) and the Centre Party gave priority to the interest of autonomy over economic well-being. However, there were aspects of the interest of physical survival in the opinions of the Social Democrats, which might be connected with their role as the government party and therefore having the ultimate responsibility. The biggest critics were the non-socialist parties: the Liberal Party (Folkpartiet) and the Conservative Party (Högerpartiet). The latter two believed that the country should seek the oppurtunity to make an exception to the neutral stance when applying for membership and then evaluate whether it would be possible to reconcile it with non-allignment. They both had economic well-being as their major interest. Further criticism came from the Communist Party (Kommunistpartiet), who were opponents of any aspect of European cooperation. They even drew parallels between the EEC and Hitler’s vision for Europe. The Communist Party included interests of physical survival and autonomy in their argumentation. All parties were consistent in keeping to their interests throughout the period of this research.

    högstadiets läroböcker i historia om medeltiden: en studie för åren 1921-20032007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte var att undersöka om läroböckerna på högstadiet när det gäller medeltiden har förändrats mellan åren 1921-2003. Om man kan se en tydlig förändring och om medeltiden framställs som mörk och trist i alla dessa böcker.

    För att jag skulle kunna svara på dessa frågor har jag valt att titta på fyra stycken olika böcker från åren, 1921, 1950, 1967 och 2003, just för att få en så bred bild som möjligt. Jag har använt mig av en teori som Michael Nordberg har skrivit där han lyfter fram att medeltiden inte alls är så mörk och trist med mycket elände som många tror.

    Man kan se en tydlig förändring mellan böckerna när man granskar dem, ju nyare de blir desto mer tar de upp. De tar upp om mer saker och det skrivs på ett annat sätt, det blir ett bredare perspektiv kan man säga. De två äldsta böckerna från år 1921 och 1950 tar endast upp om en eller två viktiga rubriker så som t ex Sveriges historia eller Europas och arabernas välde. Medan de två nyaste tar upp båda dessa delar och även annat också. Likaså när det gäller om medeltiden framställs som mörk och trist med mycket elände så förändras skriv sättet i böckerna en hel del. Det tas upp om eländet i alla böcker men på lite olika sätt och de nyaste böckerna tar även upp om allt bra som hände. Jag tycker att den nyaste boken har hittat en bra balans när det gäller vad den tar upp och på vilket sätt.

    Avslutningsvis vill jag säga att det har skett en utveckling när det gäller hur läroböckerna skrivs och det till det bättre, utvecklingen har gått åt rätt håll kan man säga, vilket vi ska vara mycket tacksamma för.

    Abstract

    Multi culture is a subject which many like to discuss. This essay will give the reader some teachers’ definitions and attitude about the multi culture conception. The main purpose with this essay is to give the reader a picture of how you can work with multi cultural classes. The work is based on research methods – qualitative interviews, which I have done with four teachers. To give the essay a structure, I have used categorical and summery.

    To use alternative teachings methods, for example live stories, in that way you give the multi cultural a more important and enriched way. The pupils get the feeling that people see them and they dare to chare theirs stories with other people.

    Thanks to alternative education, you can give the story a more living character. To have a good parents contact, and let the parents know their importance to their children schooling, that is an impression which have been stronger under this study.

    Abstract

    This paper is a study in press reception with the intent to examine how twelve female actionheroes have been portrayed in Swedish media between 1974 – 2006. The purpose is to discern patterns and differences in how the female movie character is received by their contemporary journalists and to relate their views to social and gender related theories.

     The female actionhero is an independent and brutal character, often alone and without a mother or a child. This separates her from typical female roles, which historically been characterized by passivity, fear and dependency on the male characters in the movie.

     The female actionhero as a character opens up for complex reception. One perspective in the research identifies the independent woman as a feministic icon. Other researchers and writers relate her masculine attributes, sexual charisma and the movies' financial driving force as a projection of male fantasies.

     The summarization of the critique expressed by Swedish press journalists based on 124 movie reviews and other film related articles expose noticeable differences. From a girl who stood in the shadow of male heroes to a coarse woman who surpass them. But there are still areas in which 30 years haven’t changed a thing. Critics still fixate on the female heroe's physical appearance and her achievements are with few exceptions compared to men, and not other women. The critic reception also establishes that journalists since 1974 have become less inclined to apply gender or other social theories to the movies and female heroes. A gender related perspective is despite an independent and strong woman in the background for other perspectives while male critics are in comparison to female critics significantly more inclined to apply feministic theories to movies with female actionheroes.

    Nyutexaminerade historielärares ämnesdidaktiska språkbruk

    - En kvalitativ studie av nyutexaminerade historielärare vid Karlstads universitet.

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka hur nyutexaminerade historielärares underliggande ämnesdidaktiska språkbruk och perspektiv synliggörs i dels samtal om deras undervisningsstrategi och dels planeringsmaterial, samt hur detta kan relateras till de två stora skolbildningarna inom historiedidaktik och de resultat och teorier som tidigare forskning bidragit med.

    Frågeställningarna lyder:

    1. Vilka begrepp möjliga att relatera till tysk respektive anglosachsisk historiedidaktik synliggörs i nyutexaminerade historielärares samtal om och dokument kring sin undervisningsstrategi?

    2. På vilket sätt kan de nyutexaminerade historielärarnas ämnesdidaktiska språkbruk relateras till resultat och teorier sprungna ur den tidigare forskningen?

    3. Hur kan relationen mellan de nyutexaminerade respektive de erfarna historielärarna och forskningsvärlden förklaras?

    Intervjuer med två nyutexaminerade historielärare och material i form av lektionsplaneringar och examinationer analyseras i denna studie. Resultatet av analysen visar bland annat att en likhet mellan nyutexaminerade och erfarna lärares ämnesdidaktiska språkbruk är att båda grupperna använder sig av vardagsspråkliga termer när de samtalar om sin undervisningsstrategi.

    Vindarnas Boning: En studie av monumentalistiskt historiebruk2007Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Monuments are raised all over the world of several different reasons. A monument dosen´t only refer just to itself, it also tells something about the historical context they are risen into. The overall purpose of this study is to try to reveal how history is used through the process, and rising of the monument "Vindarnas Boning" in Karlstad, Sweden 16/6, 1967. The historical narrative around this monument is about to show the importance of the esthetics, the main forces around the monument and last, how the monument legitimacy is maintained. Throughout those analytic tools, according to this study, I will try to examine possible other reasons behind this monument than the official one, who is to act as a remembrance of the finnish immigrants who settled in the unpopulated deep forests of Sweden and enabled to maintain a minor community separated from other influences, during the 16 th century and onward. The 1960´s is characterized by the large working movements between Sweden and Finland. Also the Finnish authorities launches an economical campaign in Sweden to broaden their export possibilities. This campaign is about to show the new modern Finland, with increasing own independence from Soviet influences. Referred to this, the study shows how other groups in the society possible uses history for their own purposes, the cultural ties between Sweden and Finland are strengthen through this monument, wich gains advantages in other areas as well. Referred to the economics and the thoughts of a Nordic cooperation, which some elements wishes to broaden. Through the historical narrative this study reveals actors who has strong ties to these goals. Because of this, there might be a reason to ask if the official remembrance is the only factor that is linked to this monument. This study connects the use of history through monuments with ideological reasons. This perhaps, can be a perspective to have in mind, when visiting the monument "Vindarnas Boning" next time, or other monuments as well.

    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of this study is to analyse history teachers’ understanding of the school subject history. The aim have also been to uncover what factors the history teachers say have affected their understanding of the school subject. Based on survey and interview methods, the question that this study deals with is: in the light of which general understanding of the school subject history, do the teachers make didactic choices on a daily basis?

    The first theme is biographical. The teachers’ life-history is taken into consideration and several factors in the teachers’ background and the school environment have been identified. It also seems as if the teachers’ understanding of the school subject goes from an elementary and searching approach to one that is more complex and convinced.

    The second theme is a more structural approach. The results shows three major orientations among the teachers’ general understanding namely, educational (bildung) orientation, critical orientation and identity orientation. Even though a main orientation can be seen among the teachers, an important result is also that the orientation is overall complex.

    At the most general level some patterns can be seen. First the connection between the teachers’ biography and their general understanding of the school subject. In the understanding of the school subject, it is also notable that teachers relate in different ways to history as science, history as identity and history from an ideological viewpoint. It is also possible to note some signs of change in the school subject history that follows a lager historiographical context.

    This essay examines whether or not the textbooks Utkik 7-9 Historia and SO direkt historia ämnesboken, which both are used as teaching materials in compulsory school history (grades 7-9), meet the values of the curriculum concerning the support of a multicultural society. The qualitative study therefore investigates from which perspectives non-European history is described, and if those perspectives enable or prevent the development of historical consciousness and historical empathy, two qualities that benefit multiculturalism. Therefore, the examination has its foundation in the two perspective concepts eurocentrism and intercultural learning, which are each others opposites when it comes to historical representation. In short, intercultural learning has a bigger focus on embracing multiculturalism. A comparative analysis is also carried out to examine if one of the two textbooks do a better job fulfilling the values of the Swedish curriculum. Extracts from the compulsory school curriculum and from Skolverket's website will be used as background for the investigation. The survey questions are based on different research done byNiklas Ammert, Lars Nyström (and others), Peter Gran, and Maria Johansson. The result from the study shows that both textbooks fail to meet the requirements of the curriculum since they are predominantly characterized by a eurocentric perspective rather than an intercultural one. Therefore they also prevent students from developing historical consciousness and historical empathy.

    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to contribute to the understanding of Säffle’s early development as an example of rural transformation. The rural population declined. The state demanded by legislation improved geriatric care, social care and schools.  The state solved the problems with the small municipalities' effectiveness and economic capacity through legislation about municipality mergers. The population centers demanded more land and this was solved by legislation regarding incorporation. Säffle grew through incorporations in1943 and 1952. The small rural districts formed three new larger rural districts in 1952. Through compulsory legislation in  1969 the present Säffle municipality was formed by a merger of Säffle, Gillberga, Värmlandsnäs och Svanskog. In the paper the local municipality politicians’ acting in the cooperation with the county board's officials and with the central authorities' officials are investigated. Of Peder Nielsen’s three criteria for a democratic unit are they two first, identity and politically participations, are herewith fullfilld. The third criteria capacity means the municipalities must have access to adequate resources and necessary competence. In the paper it is showed that the third criteria is met from the top perspective but more questionable from a below perspective. The same is valid for Brans’ and Kjellberg’s studies. It is shown that the local municipality politicians and the county board's officials acted in a financially rational way and that the local identity a played more secondary role in the merger processes. Wångmars conclusions ought to be complemented on this point.

    Vandrat hit som andra finnar att söka sin föda2004Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Värmländska Fryksdalen blev under 1600-talet ett livaktigt kolonisationsområde, dit framförallt människor med finskt ursprung sökte sig för försörjning och en ny framtid i skogarna. Expansionen av odlingsbygden och tillväxten av befolkningen kom att fortgå i bygden utan större avbräck fram till 1800-talets slut - när industrialism, urbanisering och emigration förändrade levnadsförutsättningarna överallt.



    Vilka var pionjärerna som bröt ny bygd här? Varifrån kom de, varför sökte de sig just hit, hur var deras familjeförhållanden? Det får man en viss uppfattning om när man studerar källor som domböcker, mantalslängder och kyrkoböcker. Sällan blir skildringen dock så utförlig och detaljerad som i rannsakningslängden över inhysesfolket i Fryksdalen för år 1674. Det är en unik källa till kunskapen om bygdens fattigskikt by för by, familj för familj, skapad av prost och länsman i samarbete. Namn, ålder, bostadsort, etnisk tillhörighet och rykte i bygden är sådant som längden informerar om.



    Dokumentet ger särskilt viktiga pusselbitar i förståelsen av den skogsfinska migrationen och kolonisationen. Inhysesfolket domineras av finnarna, men Fryksdalen visar sig också ha varit en tillflyktsort för andra värmlänningar, för västgötar, dalmasar - liksom för norrmän på flykt undan krigstjänst eller lagens långa arm.



    Rannsakningslängden för år 1674 presenteras här för första gången i tryck. Den återges såväl i faksimil som i transkriberad form, med inledande kommentarer av Peter Olausson och Gabriel Bladh.

    En studie av fattighus: En jämförande undersökning av fattigdom och dess orsaker i staten New York år 18922016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen har varit att undersöka alkoholvanornas betydelse för människors inskrivning vid fattighus i New York state i USA. Den tidsperiod som behandlas i uppsatsen är år 1892. De faktorer som ligger till grund för jämförelsen är etniska och socioekonomiska faktorer.

    För att undersöka detta har inskrivningskort från fattighusen i staten New York använts och sedan har det gjorts en kvantitativ undersökning. De resultat som visar sig i denna uppsats är att alkohol- vanorna för svenskfödda och infödda faktiskt skiljde sig. Det var vanligare att de som var födda i Amerika hade alkoholproblem som påverkat deras situation, än vad det var för de svenskfödda. Re- sultatet visar även på att den sociala mobiliteten varierade mellan de valda fattighusen som under- söktes. Dock var det vanligare i alla fattighusen att de inskrivna hade sjunkit i kategorier av yrken och i de sociala rummen.

    Digitala läromedel i historia: En jämförande studie av digitaliseringens påverkan på historieämnet i grundskolans senare år2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to examine the development design in educational materials in the subject history for students in lower secondary school. The Holocaust was chosen as a clearly defined subject since it is very well documented in the Swedish curriculum. A selection of different digital educational materials were examined through comparative method. To be able to measure the effect of the digitalization, the study used an international standard for measuring the degree of impact on educational materials named SAMR which stands for substitution, augmentation, modification and redefinition. However, in the study the Swedish translation EUMO was used. The study found that digital educational materials have had quite an impact on the possibilities of how pupils interact with the historic educational material today. But even if some educational publishers are very likeminded, there are also differences in their materials. Some common themes are the interactive parts with hyperlinked words and quizzes that give instant feedback. In addition to this some of the publishers had made room for more personal stories or current big news in their exercises. The study indicates that due to the wider span of educational material today thanks to digitalization, it’s more important than ever for teachers to spend time searching after good educational material for the future to come.

    Irländska kvinnor vid the Old Bailey: Synen på irländska kvinnliga förbrytare i London 1674-19002010Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Irish immigrants have been an important part of London throughout the centuries. Their presence can be found from the 17th century and onwards. Initially occupied as seasonal workers in agrarian fields the Irish later found alternative ways of supporting themselves as the Industrial Revolution transformed the whole of England. Despite their vital importance to the construction of what was to be known as "the modern Babylon" the Irish have been victims of both social prejudice and maltreatment. Some historians have imposed a comparison between the Irish in England and the African slaves in the United States. They have viewed the Irish with the spectacles of modern racism and in their presumptions created an unfair image of the relationship of the British and the Irish as the European equivalent of that of the African slaves and the American slave owners. Not content with superimposing the image of "the racist Englishman" solely on the 19th century, scholars such as L. P Curtis and R. N. Lebow have sought to explain any questionable act committed by the British as a sign of xenophobia towards their Celtic neighbours, whether it be Cromwell’s Irish Campaign in 1649 or the lack of British aid during the Great Famine in Ireland in the 1840s.

    This essay sets out to examine how Irish women were perceived at the Old Bailey Session House in London. Women have always received verdicts of a more lenient character than their male counterparts. It is therefore plausible to suppose that, if Cutis and Lebow are correct in their assumptions, Irish women should receive harsher verdicts and a higher frequency of those committed than those acquitted of crimes in comparison with their British counterparts, which simply is not the case.
