    A Scandinavian "Magna Charta"?: The Scandinavian Corps and the politics of memory in South Africa (1899–1927)2016In: Historia, ISSN 2309-8392, no 2, p. 54-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how the Scandinavian Corps, which fought on the Boer side for a brief period during the South African war (1899-1902) and participated in the battle of Magersfontein on 11 December 1899, was remembered and commemorated in South Africa from 1899 to 1927. Initially, most of the Scandinavian people resident in South Africa were opposed to the corps, and the erection of a monument in its honour met with little interest among them. However, at the unveiling ceremony of the first monument the memory of the corps resonated with the post-war narrative of brotherhood and unity between Boer and Briton in South Africa. In the 1920s the memory of the corps was revived among Scandinavian people, particularly through the magazine Fram (Forward), and commemorative events were held on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the battle. A new monument was later erected and unveiled in 1927, and the same narrative of brotherhood and reconciliation dominated yet again. Through the memory of the corps, the Scandinavian population legitimised their place in the country and became dedicated South Africans. But as they became fully integrated into white South African society, the memory of the Scandinavian Corps appears to have faded.

    Lika för alla?2019In: ARKIV. Tidskrift för samhällsanalys, ISSN 2000-6225, E-ISSN 2000-6217, no 10, p. 71-86Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    När Moderaterna inför riksdagsvalet 2018 lanserade sin nya valslogan ”Lika för alla” var det till mångas förvåning, även inom partiet självt, eftersom den förde tankarna till idén om social jämlikhet, vilket vanligtvis förknippas med den politiska vänstern. I sin artikel visar Christian Gerdov emellertid hur det inom kort klargjordes att det inte var social jämlikhet som Moderaterna avsåg, utan snarare hur talet om lika för alla grundade sig i den liberala föreställningen om jämlikhet i frihet, liksom jämlikhet inför lagen. Vidare låg vikten vid skyldigheter, såsom plikten att arbeta. De sociala rättigheterna, som vann insteg efter andra världskriget, har ersatts av det nyliberala projektet för valfrihet, där medborgaren förvandlas till en självförverkligande entreprenör. Det universella subjektet i talet om lika för alla visar sig även vara partikulärt, eftersom svenskhet och svenska värderingar betonas och kontrasteras mot det hotfulla ”Andra”. Moderaternas slogan påminner därför om Orwellskt nyspråk där alla förklaras vara jämlika, men där somliga är mer jämlika än andra.
