    Abstract [en]

    Is what is taken for critique today genuinely self-questioning or merely the confirmation of the moral consensus? In the neoliberal culture of the audit, has critique been deprived of its role as check on ideology? And does preference for impact-oriented research produce political compliance rather than independent critical thought?

    Förvara och bevara: teori om standarders betydelse i eArkivförvaltning2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är uppmuntrande att höra respondenterna, från olika offentliga myndigheter, uttrycka sig om arbetet med eArkiv. Det går att lägga märke till att deras arbete inte handlar om att hålla reda på dammiga papper och arkivkartonger utan att det istället handlar om att bevara det digitala minnet i första hand. De visar en genuin känsla av att vilja utveckla sitt åtagande på bästa möjliga sätt och ge ett viktigt bidrag till verksamheten. Resultatet av den undersökning som gjorts visar några viktiga åtgärder som vidtagits och insikter som arbetet gett. De beskriver i sina uttalanden hur komplext arbetet med att skapa ett system för att ta emot digital data är. När det gäller standarder så har OAIS-modellen fått en mycket stark ställning hos dem som blivit intervjuade. Hur arbetet med att redovisa arkiven enligt verksamhetens processer har fungerat berörs också. Däremot var det inte så många andra standarder som hade fått någon särskild uppmärksamhet förutom de formatstandarder som Riksarkivet utfärdat. Med dessa data som grund har det skapats en teori omkring arbetet med att införa ett eArkiv.

    Bleed for the Devil: Ritualized Self-Harm as Transgressive Practice in Contemporary Satanism, and the Re-enchantement of Late Modernity2015In: Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review, ISSN 1946-0538, E-ISSN 1946-0538, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 165-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Using ethnographic method combined with analysis of primary sources like mass media appearances, song lyrics and websites, the article ex-amines ritualized self-injury in the Black Metal milieu. It is shown that this type of ascetic mortification is no aberration in the history of religions, but diverges from older forms of Satanism. Self-injury functions in Black Metal Satanism as a symbol of transgression and virile bravado, and as a means to display allegiance to the Satanic cause by permanently marking the body. It is typically described by practitioners as a blood sacrifice to Satan. This ritualization of self-injury, where it is explicitly framed as a practice completely different from anything occurring in a secular context, is part of a broader endeavor in the milieu, which seeks to re-enchant a late modernity perceived to be devoid of spiritual values. Increasing mass media attention to self-injury, there postulated as a (secular) mental health problem among adolescent girls, has therefore lessened its usefulness as a sacralized and masculine transgressive symbol. This, it is argued, explains the declining emphasis on it in the Satanic milieu in recent years.

    Djävulen som kvinnans befriare: Om en drastisk feministisk strategi , ca 1880–19302015In: Tidsskrift for kjønnsforskning, ISSN 0809-6341, E-ISSN 1891-1781, Vol. 39, no 2, p. 111-129Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses how feminists, in particular in the period circa 1880–1930, have employed Satanism (i.e., a positive portrayal of the Devil) as a strategy in their endeavors. The central theme in this context is the construction of a counter-myth to the hegemonic Christian myth of Eve’s interaction with the Serpent/Satan in the Garden of Eden. This narrative has traditionally been used by conservative Christians to legitimate the subjugation of women. By making Eve and the Serpent heroic rebels against an oppressive patriarchal God, the social implications of the original myth are attacked. An important background for much of this insurrectionist rhetoric was the esoteric and pro-Satanic counter-myth constructed by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, chief ideologist of the influential Theosophical Society. Equally crucial was the fact that Satanism, as the article demonstrates, was well-established as a language of resistance, and had been employed by dissidents like Shelley and various socialists to provoke the bourgeoisie and display a complete rejection of hegemonic discourses. Concluding the article is a discussion of the paradoxes inherent when a counter-discourse is created, such as the reification and perpetuation of existent mythologies.

    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the innovative form of Satanism that arose in theNordic Black Metal milieu around 1989–1990. Its focus on theistic wor-ship of Satan, and evil as the highest value, set it apart from most otherknown forms of Satanism. Drawing on fanzines, records and interviews,it is demonstrated that this counter-discourse positioned itself in oppo-sition to LaVeyan Satanism – which was perceived as too humanitarian,positive and soft – to a greater extent than it focused on anti-Christianpolemics. The possible influence of role-playing games is also scruti-nized, and it is found that there are certain connections between BlackMetal Satanism and this phenomenon. Finally, the paradoxes inherentin a counter-discursive project like the celebration of evil are highlighted.

    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the view, held by many nineteenth-century authors, of Leonardo da Vinci as an esotericist, and his La Gioconda as mysterious, sinister and filled with hidden signs. This “esoterization” of the painting and its creator was part of a broader tendency to view artists, both historical and contemporary, as magicians and mystics in some sense. Hereby, art became integrated into the endeavors of various esoteric groups and thinkers, and an originally secular Renaissance work was absorbed into a nineteenth-century “occulture” or “cultic milieu.”

    Satanic feminism: Lucifer as the liberator of woman in nineteenth-century culture2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    According to the Bible, Eve was the first to heed Satan’s advice to eat of the forbidden fruit. The notion of woman as the Devil’s accomplice is prominent throughout the history of Christianity and has been used to legitimate the subordination of wives and daughters. During the nineteenth century, rebellious females performed counter-readings of this misogynist tradition. Hereby, Lucifer was reconceptualized as a feminist liberator of womankind, and Eve became a heroine. In these reimaginings, Satan is an ally in the struggle against a patriarchy supported by God the Father and his male priests. The book delineates how such Satanic feminism is expressed in a number of nineteenth-century esoteric works, literary texts, autobiographies, pamphlets and journals, newspaper articles, paintings, sculptures, and even artefacts of consumer culture such as jewellery. The analysis focuses on interfaces between esotericism, literature, art, and the political realm. New light is thus shed on neglected aspects of the intellectual history of feminism, Satanism, and revisionary mythmaking. The scope of the study makes it valuable not only for historians of religion but also for those with a general interest in cultural history (or specific aspects of it like gender history, romanticism, or decadent-symbolist art and literature).

    Om determinism och fri vilja hos Leibniz: En studie av Leibniz Theodicy: Essays on the Goodness of God the Freedom of Man and the Origin of Evil2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen studerar och analyserar begreppen ”determinism”, ”fri vilja” och ”moraliskt ansvar”, speciellt i Leibniz Theodicy. I uppsatsens första del utreds och preciseras begreppen vilket är nödvändigt för att sedan, i andra delen, kunna analysera Leibniz teori utifrån dem. Leibniz utgår från att Gud som har skapat jorden och i och med detta även bestämt alla dess förlopp (den förutbestämda harmonin), han anser dock att detta är förenligt med människans fria vilja. Enligt Leibniz är frihet att handla i enlighet med sin natur. Trots att Leibniz hävdar att alla förlopp är bestämda av Gud anser han att moraliskt ansvar ändå har en plats i teorin. För att kunna hävda det måste han anse att det räcker med hypotetiska alternativ till den utförda handlingen. Uppsatsen uppfattar Leibniz determinism som teologisk determinism, något som utesluter frihet och fri vilja i det avseende som vi avser då vi talar om begreppen till vardags. Uppsatsen visar på problem i Leibniz teori när det gäller moraliskt ansvar och skuld, dessa blir svåra att förstå och motivera i Leibniz redan förutbestämda harmoni.

    Anti-Judaism or antisemitism?: The Swedish Association for Mission among the Jews as a Case Study2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    De senaste decenniernas forskning om antisemitism i Sverige har i hög grad varit inriktad på utvecklingen under 1900-talet, inte minst problem kopplade till andra världskriget och förhållandet till Nazityskland. Åtskilliga värdefulla resultat har presenterats men flera kapitel återstår att skriva av den svenska antisemitismens historia. Inte minst förtjänar utvecklingen under 1800-talets senare en djupare genomlysning.

    På 1870-tet bidrog den ekonomiska krisen i Väst- och Centraleuropa till att liberalismen förlorade prestige och ersattes av en totalitär och exkluderande nationalism som legitimerande statsideologi. I fråga om judarna ställde en växande antisemitisk rörelse krav på uppbrott från den tidigare emancipations- och integrationslinjen. Frågan var inte längre hur judar skulle bli en del av nationen utan om det överhuvudtaget var möjligt.

    Under detta skede omformades traditionellt kristna antijudiska teman till rasistiskt färgad antisemitism om judisk världsmakt. Katolska medier såväl som protestantiska demagoger var många gånger drivande i den antisemitiska rörelsen, samtidigt som delar av kyrkan såg med oro på utvecklingen och snarare höll fast vid en linje där omvändelse och dop sågs som lösningen av den ”judiska frågan”.

    Mot bakgrund av den tecknade historiska kontexten kommer mitt paper diskutera brytningen mellan kristen antijudaism och modern antisemitism i ett svenskt perspektiv. Jag tar avstamp i en analys av två längre artiklar publicerade på 1880-talet i en lågkyrklig missionstridskrift, Missionstidskrift för Israel. I texterna blandas traditionella teman med samtidens konspiratoriska föreställningar om judisk kontroll över banksystemet, börsen och pressen. Ett framtidsscenario målas, dels om ett judiskt skräckvälde som håller på att upprättas, dels om hela Israels omvändelse och en ny världsordning där en fullkomnad mänsklighet framträder.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this contribution is to study how Jews and Judaism is viewed among evangelical Christians in Sweden as reflected in the journal Missionstidning för Israel (Mission Magazine for Israel) 1874–1885. The journal was founded in Stockholm in 1874 within the Swedish Lutheran Church and was published by Svenska Israelsmissionen, an association for Christian missionary activity among the Jews. The way in which Jewish people were depicted stemmed from hostile Christian traditions. The Jews were said to be rejected by God because of their blindness, disobedience and rebelliousness, and furthermore they are repeatedly blamed for the crucifixion. But themes from contemporary secular anti-Semitism can also be found in the texts, for example, Jewish control over the banking system, economy and media in order to dominate the world. The Jewish people were por-trayed as hostile towards God and a threat to Christianity and Christian society. However, eventually all Jews will turn to Christ, and that will be the beginning of a new order and the perfection of mankind. This mind-set is similar to what is often called redemptive Anti-Semitism: The Jewish people are the key to human perfection.

    Abstract [en]

    Tales about treacherous Jesuits and scheming popes are an important and pervasive part of European culture. They belong to a set of ideas, images, and practices that, when grouped under the label anti-Catholicism, represent a phenomenon that can be traced back to the Reformation. Anti-Catholic movements and sentiments crossed boundaries between European countries, contributing to the early modern consolidation of national identities. In the nineteenth century, secularist movements adopted and transformed confessional criticism in a new internationalist dimension that was articulated across the whole Western world. A variety of liberal, conservative, secular, Protestant, and other forces gave shape to this counter-image, taking on the function of a pattern from which one’s own ideals and beliefs could be chiselled out. The contributions to this volume show how different national contexts affected the proliferation of anti-Catholic messages over the course of four centuries of European history, and demonstrate that anti-Catholicism constituted a powerful European cross-cultural phenomenon.

    Book abstract:

    Social Science in Context is one of the first ventures to explore the relationship between social science and society in historical, sociological and global perspective. What impact has the research in these areas had on society? How are research fields established and to what ends?

    Social Science in Context is a compilation of articles by an international and multidisciplinary group of scholars. The authors analyse the practical making and discursive aspects of social scientific knowledge and examples are drawn from a broad range of disciplines such as sociology, psychology, economics, and gender studies.

    The overall aim of the book is to encourage a contextual and reflexive understanding of the complex relationship between the social sciences and society. The bonds of the past and today are made up by reciprocity and involve key elements such as gender and power, science and politics, academic boundaries and global power relations.

    The book should be of interest to researchers, graduate students or anyone else interested in understanding and reflecting upon the uses, roles and functions of social science in today’s globalised world.

    European Anti-Catholicism in a Comparative and Transnational Perspective2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tales about treacherous Jesuits and scheming popes are an important and pervasive part of European culture. They belong to a set of ideas, images, and practices that, when grouped under the label anti-Catholicism, represent a phenomenon that can be traced back to the Reformation. Anti-Catholic movements and sentiments crossed boundaries between European countries, contributing to the early modern consolidation of national identities. In the nineteenth century, secularist movements adopted and transformed confessional criticism in a new internationalist dimension that was articulated across the whole Western world. A variety of liberal, conservative, secular, Protestant, and other forces gave shape to this counter-image, taking on the function of a pattern from which one’s own ideals and beliefs could be chiselled out. The contributions to this volume show how different national contexts affected the proliferation of anti-Catholic messages over the course of four centuries of European history, and demonstrate that anti-Catholicism constituted a powerful European cross-cultural phenomenon.Contents Authors in this volume Yvonne Maria Werner and Jonas Harvard: European Anti-Catholicism in Comparative and Transnational Perspective – The Role of a Unifying Other: An Introduction General Perspectives John Wolffe: North Atlantic Anti-Catholicism in the Nineteenth Century: A Comparative Overview Manuel Borutta: Settembrini’s World: German and Italian Anti-Catholicism in the Age of the Culture Wars Anti-Catholicism and National Identity Laura M.
