    A Struggle for the Realm: Late-medieval Swedish rhyme chronicles as ideological expressions2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The period from the mid-fifteenth century to the early sixteenth century was characterised by recurrent political turmoil and conflict in Scandinavia in general, and in Sweden in particular. Political power was contested, not least because of the disputed conditions on which the Swedish realm should be governed as part of the Scandinavian union monarchy. Contenders for power based their claims on support from various factions of the ecclesiastical and secular aristocracy. Other groups within the realm played a crucial role as allies, supporters or armed levies.

    In A Struggle for the Realm, Margaretha Nordquist examines the late-medieval Swedish rhyme chronicles Sturekrönikan (c. 1496–1497) and Cronica Swecie (c. 1520–1523) as ideological responses to contemporary conflicts of power. The rhyme chronicles describe some of the key events and actors in the period, in ways that both differ and overlap. As partisan narratives written in support of particular political factions, the rhyme chronicles can be seen as verbal contributions in a struggle for the realm. Nordquist's analysis shows that the realm functioned as a fundamental ideological construct in the chronicles. The realm and the Swedish community were key mobilising elements in the efforts to legitimate and consolidate certain positions of power, but the precise meaning and implications of the Swedish realm and the Swedish community were not fixed. The community of Swedes is primarily envisioned as a political and social entity, although the common, ancient origin of the people is an important element in Cronica Swecie. The concept of regnal ideology is used to describe the creation of ideological meaning in the rhyme chronicles. While the realm possesses substantial ideological validity in both chronicles, they differ in the particular configuration of power they advocate as a basis for the government of the realm.

    Celebrating the Memory of Victory: Tracing the Memories of the Battle of Brunkeberg (1471)2019In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates different, but partly overlapping, memorializing processes linked to the Battle of Brunkeberg (1471). In the decades after the battle, memories of the battle not only served to construct the event as a narrative of victory that reinforced notions of legitimate power and a Swedish community, but also formed the basis of potentially divisive emotions of fear and anxiety among the people in periods of political turbulence. The analysis of memory as articulations of co-existing, partly contradictory, and selective narratives and symbolic expressions shows how various memory practices and formats intersect in the political culture and identities of the past.

    Eternal Bonds of Love or Foreign Oppression? Entangled Identities in Late-Medieval Scandinavia2018In: Quaestiones Medii Aevi Novae, ISSN 1427-4418, Vol. 23, p. 379-403Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the occurrence of two common but contradictory themes in the political discourse in fifteenth-century Scandinavia: on the one hand proclamations of the essential bonds existing between Norway, Sweden and Denmark, and on the other hand expressions of hostility against what is represented as foreign rule. The aim is to examine how different forms of discourse reveal coexisting and sometimes oppositional expressions of identity, with a particular focus on the role of cultural memory in the elaboration of these themes. A crucial political framework for the analysis is the Kalmar Union, which throughout the century constituted a common, if not always implemented, form of government of the Scandinavian kingdoms.

    The article explores the occurrence of nativist ideas of origin and identity within the pragmatics of a game of power in fifteenth century Scandinavia. In the vernacular chronicles of fifteenth-century Denmark and Sweden, differentiating between categories of men such as inborn and foreigner was a prominent way of expressing views about legitimate claims to power and privileges in the realms. In the construction of coherent and meaningful narratives of a common past, identities linked to birth and regnal belonging were apparently important. At the same time, personal bonds based on friendship, kinship and allegiance, played a fundamental role in the political dealings of the period. Particular bonds of love were also perceived to exist between the realms, as shown in the treaties negotiated between the realms. Rather than giving priority to the importance of one specific sense of identity in the political game of the period, it is argued that the complex relationships governing political action and discourse in late-medieval Scandinavia should be conceived in terms of entangled identities, where the different forms of identification and allegiance remain distinct, while at the same time inseparable from each other.

    Kvalitetsutveckling av grundutbildning vid Historiska institutionen: Slutrapport2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetsgruppen för kvalitetsutveckling, i dagligt tal kallad ”pedagoggruppen”, har i januari 2016 av Institutionsstyrelsen fått i uppdrag att utvärdera de tre första terminernas studier i Historia (Historia I-III), komma med förslag på pedagogiska nysatsningar samt utveckla pedagogiska modeller för lärarstudenter. Detta med syftet att göra historieutbildningen på Historiska institutionen vid Stockholms universitet (SU) ännu mer effektiv, attraktiv och anpassad till den verklighet där vi möter allt fler studenter med skiftande akademisk bakgrund och förutsättningar för att klara sina studier. Uppdraget är en fortsättning på det arbete som genomfördes under åren 2012-2013 för att utveckla grundutbildningen i Historia, och som sedermera terminsvis följts upp av studierektorer, kursansvariga och lärarlag.
