Abstract [en]

In this book, ideas and practices on appraisal in Swedish state archives c. 1970–2010 are analysed. What records has been kept, why, and for whom? How has the archival sphere been influenced by overall societal ideas on heritage and memory? The relative importance of legal and institutional frameworks is also analysed, since laws heavily regulate archives in the Swedish public sector. The Swedish Archives Act of 1990 emphasises that the “research interest” has to be accounted for when deciding what to preserve, and it adds that the state archives are part of the “national heritage”. How is this implemented in actual appraisal practises? It is shown that appraisal in Sweden is generally pragmatic and – in a Schellenbergian tradition – rests on a presumption (most often not articulated) that it is possible to foresee the desires of future users.

Abstract [en]

This book challenges the idea that a sharp boundary should be drawn between the state and civil society. Although this idea is extremely common in modern capitalist societies, here it is turned on its head through a study of the ways in which public funding from the 1870s to the 1990s has enabled and shaped collective action in Swedish popular education. Popular education has generally been seen as independent of government control, with strong connections to popular and labour movements; in this volume, Berg and Edquist narrate a new story of its rise by analysing how a government grant system was constructed to drive its development. A key element in this government policy was to create and protect popular education as an autonomous phenomenon, yet making it perform state functions by regulating its bureaucratic make-up and ideological content. The book will appeal to scholars and students of history, education, and sociology, particularly those with an interest in the workings of the capitalist state as well as the history of education.

Abstract [en]

Gotland, Åland, Saaremaa, Hiiumaa and Bornholm are five island regions in the Baltic Sea which constitute, or have until recently constituted, provinces or counties of their own. Combining perspectives from two disparate academic fields, uses of history and island studies, this book investigates how regional history writing has contributed to the formation of regional identity on these islands since the year 1800. The special geographic situation of the islands-somewhat secluded from the mainland but also connected to important waterways-has provided their inhabitants with shared historical experiences. Due to varying geographic and historical circumstances, the relationship between regional and national identity is however different on each island. While regional history writing has in most cases aimed at integrating the island into the nation state, it has on Åland in the second half of the 20th century been used to portray its inhabitants as a separate nation. Dramatic political upheavals as the World Wars has also caused shifts in how regional history writing has represented the relationship to the mainland nation state, and has sometimes also resulted in altered national loyalties.

Abstract [sv]

Vikingatiden finns överallt: läktarna fylls av vikingahjälmar när det är landskamp, runtomkring i Sverige grundas vikingabyar, och i vår alltmer kommersialiserade historiekultur hävdas att vikingaarvet ska hjälpa oss att locka turister till Sverige. Vikingatiden är också ideologiskt laddad som få historiska epoker. Den har setts som en period när Sverige på allvar framträdde som ett eget rike, och när svenskarna för första gången gjorde sig bemärkta i andra länder. Inte minst for de österut, och tack vare arkeologiska fynd och 1100-talsskriften Nestorskrönikan har lärda och vetenskapsmän i Sverige och andra länder hävdat att Ryssland grundats av svenskar.

I boken I Ruriks fotspår: Om forntida svenska österledsfärder i modern historieskrivning studerar historikern Samuel Edquist hur skandinavernas vikingafärder i österled beskrivits av svenska forskare igår och idag. Vi får följa utvecklingen från 1800-talets besatthet vid att finna ursprunget till våra tiders nationer i forntiden, och hur denna nationalism genomsyrade forskningsresultaten, till våra dagars försök att göra upp med vetenskapens nationalistiska förflutna. Studien avslutas med en diskussion om tänkbara strategier för att förhålla sig till en så ideologiskt laddad företeelse som vikingatiden.
