In search of the Swedish environmental movement's song tradition (English)
Abstract [en]

Is there a specific tradition of songs within the swedish environmental movement? What kinds of music has been performed in different situations and what does it mean to the movement and its inner life? The essay deals with a town meeting and action against plans of establishing passenger flights at a former military airport in Uppsala, looking at the action as a performance and as a ritual. The second part of the essay is built on interviews of three veterans of the movement's organisations one of which is as a singer-songwriter originally active in the peace movement of the 60's. The paper is about the songs and the situations in which they were sung, concluding that there is, the limited material considered, little evidence of considerable transfer of songs within the movement, though some coherence exists. The connection to between environmental movement and the swedish radical music movement of the 70's is also slightly mentioned. Finally there is a reasoning about songs and their different functions and the songs as an important part of a movement's narrative.

Abstract [sv]

Finns det en speciell sångtradition inom den svenska miljörörelsen? Vilken slags musik har framförts i olika situationer och vad betyder det för rörelsen och dess inre liv. Denna uppsats behandlar ett torgmöte och en aktion mot planer att etablera passagerarflyg vid en tidigare militär flygplats i Uppsala. Aktionen ses ur performance- och ritualperspektiv. Vidare intervjuas tre veteraner i miljörörelsen varav en är en trubadur aktiv sedan fredsrörelsen på 1960-talet. Uppsatsen handlar om sånger och framförandesituationer. Förbindelsen mellan miljörörelsen och musikrörelsen under 1970-talet tas också kortfatttat upp. Slutligen finns ett resonemang om sången och dess funktion och sång såsom rörelseberättelse.
