    Borgaren och militärstaten. Den tidigmoderna stadens politiska kultur2008In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 4, no 128:4, p. 621-645Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln återger mötet och interaktionen mellan militärstatens företrädare och det borgerskap som flyttade till den nya staden Karlskrona 1682. Undersökningen omspänner drygt tio år från 1682 fram till 1693. Teoretiska utgångspunkter har hämtats från ett internationellt forskningsläge som har det gemensamt att man utifrån en Habermas-kritisk läsning funnit ett behov av ett vidgat kommunikationsbegrepp. Med ett vidgat kommunikationsbegrepp blir det möjligt att undersöka och analysera frågor om offentlighet, rationalitet och kommunikation även under tidigmodern tid. En viktig underliggande frågeställning inom denna kritiska riktning har varit att man eftersträvat en forskningsdiskussion om hur ett samband mellan det tidigmoderna och det moderna kan ha sett ut inom detta område Genom att bryta med en alltför stelbent kronologisk uppdelning öppnas för nya tolkningar av det vi kan uppfatta som nationella särdrag i den politiska kulturen. Vilket blir då utfallet om detta forskningsperspektiv appliceras på en svensk tidigmodern kontext? Om vi väljer att betrakta borgerskapet i Karlskrona under den aktuella perioden som ett svenskt borgerskap och om vi karakteriserar staden som en svensk stad, begränsad och reglerad av en nationell kontext, då framstår detta borgerskap möjligen som oansenligt och utan större politisk kraft. Men den analys som företagits ger stöd för ett antagande att borgerskapet i Karlskrona innehade en icke oansenlig maktposition, vilken kunde användas i förhandlingarna med den svenska statsmakten. Maktpositionen baserades på delaktighet i ett handelsnätverk i Östersjön med starka förgreningar till Holland. Hade detta nätverk raserats av en oförsiktig statsmakt hade det fått betydande konsekvenser för den svenska flottan. Den kommunikativa praktik som utvecklades inom borgerskapet var präglad av en ekonomisk praxis som var funktionell i detta internationella handelssammanhang. Den ekonomiska rationalitet, den form av offentlighet, den tilltro till och användning av skriftliga dokument som borgerskapet företrädde hämtade sin legitimitet från det faktum att det var en accepterad praxis i städerna runt Östersjön. Det var en praxis med en legitimitet som inte ens en absolut statsmakt kunde förbise utan konsekvenser. Ett alltför auktoritärt agerande mot detta borgerskap hade kunnat påverka handelssituationen i Östersjön och därmed försvårat försörjning och expansion av den svenska flottan. Även statsmakten förhandlade utifrån en maktposition. Hänsyn måste tas till borgerskapets position och styrka men det innebar inte att statsmakten underordnade sig borgerskapet. En dialogisk ordning etablerades utifrån denna maktkonfiguration. Som undersökningen visat kunde statsmakten långsiktigt påverka maktförhållandena till sin fördel och den kunde åstadkomma maktförskjutningar till sin fördel. Samtalet om privat och offentligt antyder en sådan maktförskjutning till statsmaktens fördel. Borgerskapets enskilda eller kollektiva agerande konfronterades med en föreställning om den offentliga maktutövningen. En konsekvens var att borgerskapets kollektiva agerande och den inbördes solidariteten trängdes tillbaka. Statsmaktens strävan till professionalisering och ökad byråkratisering visar också hur borgerskapets strävan till större självständighet trängdes tillbaka. Borgerskapets bruk av offentligheten lyckades statsmakten delvis begränsa. Offentligheten som ett medel för en artikulerad gemenskapsformering inom borgerskapet och som ett vapen mot statsmakten hade inget verkligt genomslag. I stället polariserades eller förstärktes en polarisering inom borgerskapet.

    Abstract [en]

    Under tidigmodern tid och som ett resultat av den expanderande flottan tvingades den militära ledningen i Sverige att engagera sig i den produktiva verksamhet som var ämnad att bidra till flottans försörjning. Detta engegemang innebar att flotan tekniska kunskap,dess logistiska kompetens och organisationsförmåga kom att användas i nya sammanhang.Den tidigmoderna produktion som etablerades i landskapet Blekinge kom att få betydelse för det moderna industrilandskapets utformning.

    Sanningen om faderskapet, via blodet [The truth about fatherhood, via the blood]: ”Lösaktiga kvinnor”, blodgruppsundersökningar och faderskapsmål 1917–1949 [”Loose women”, blood group analysis and paternity cases 1917–1949]2019In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 139, no 1, p. 34-67Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From the mid-1920s, scientific knowledge about the heredity of blood groups was introduced into politics and court cases about disputed paternity in Sweden. The aim was to protect men who, perhaps wrongly, had been singled out as fathers of extramarital children. In 1917 a Swedish law that stated that all children should have a recognized father who should also pay for the child’s support was adopted. If the alleged father refused to acknowledge the child, the case would go to court. The court decided the case on information that the couple had had intercourse at a time when the child could have been conceived. In such case the man was deemed the likely father. The law was seen as a great step forward for unmarried mothers and their children.

    In the mid-1920s, an animated debate questioned the provision of the law that gave women the right to single out a particular man as the father under oath. It was argued that ”loose women” would select a particular man among several possible fathers to receive the highest possible allowance. The new technique of blood group analysis was seen by experts and left-wing and women’s movement actors as a possible and objective means to determine the truth and save the law.

    Based on the concept of technopolitics and on theories of the social construction of a social problem – in this case men’s presumed lack of legal protection – and of ”loose women” as a risk object, the article discusses the controversies around the scientific validity of the blood group tests and the efforts to make scientific evidence be counted in court. It documents the steps towards a parliamentary decision that would lead to a 1933 law, among the first in the world to make blood tests mandatory for women in court cases about disputed paternity. The analysis is based on contemporary media, official investigations and statistics, and cases that reached the Supreme Court. The article discusses the contradictory notions within science and the law about what would count as evidence and truth, and locates the Swedish experience in an international context, comparing the very different roles of expert knowledge in court proceedings in different countries. The example of blood group analysis in disputed paternity cases shows how biotechnology was introduced into the contested terrain of interwar sexual, family and welfare politics, contributing to the biologization of the notion of fatherhood and to an increasing use of medical expertise in court.

    Pastoral and bodily care in religious houses and churches

    This article compares endowments given to religious houses and churches in the periods 1282 to 1314 and 1401 to 1410. In the first period the pattern was for a testator to donate a large sum to one main recipient for his burial place and several smaller sums in money to diverse recipients for chantry prayers. Many of the latter recipients were monasteries and convents, especially of the mendicant orders. These recipients ceased in the second period when instead a sole recipient stod for all pastoral care. During both periods women and men gave more poperty and more frequently to monasteries belonging to the Cistercian order than to the mendicant orders.

       The yield from designated farmsteads financed the gifts during the first period, especially when the gift finally was given in coins. In the first period the receiver only aquired perpertual right to the yield when a chantry (prebenda) in a cathedral or in a monastery was established. In contrast, in the later period the receiver almost always got such a right. In the former period this only happened when a donator who had received bodily care had died. In the 15th century the right of possession was trasferred foremost to monasteries, not only when the donator sought bodily care but also when seaking such pasoral care as chantry prayers, masses, month-minds, year-minds and intercessionary prayers.  When yield paid for the care it seems that it was easier for the donators to turn to the mendicant orders than it was in the 15th century. None from any of the Franciscan orders then received possession of landed property, as expected. But some female Dominicans and the John Baptist brethrens from the town of Eskelstura received landed property during this later period too.

    The power of national narratives: The lack of genuine efforts to come to terms with the past in Hungary and Romania, and the role of historians2016In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 136, no 3, p. 441-471Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the power of national narratives and the lack of genuine efforts to come to terms with the past in Hungary and Romania. Hungary and Romania have experienced a common history marked by conflicts, changing borders, and totalitarian regimes. The two countries have not succeeded in overcoming issues in their common past. Instead, national narratives have been institutionalized in textbooks and among historians, even in the international context. Historians have narrated the nation's history under the strong influence of political agendas. This political force supports the hegemonic positions of the national narratives today. The national narratives are not only disseminated domestically, but are also reflected in articles about the two countries in encyclopedias abroad, such as the Swedish National Encyclopedia (Nationalencyklopedin). Romania has undertaken more efforts to come to terms with its past than Hungary has, in assuming responsibility for the Holocaust and investigating crimes against humanity during communism for example. Hungary's position on the Holocaust has been contradictory. On the one hand, Hungarian officials have admitted the Hungarian state's responsibility. However, on the other hand, leading historians appointed by the Hungarian government have explicitly claimed that Nazi-Germany alone was responsible for the Holocaust. The officially sanctioned responsibility assumed by the Hungarian and Romanian governments should be seen as sign of political correctness rather than genuine reconciliation. Politicians and historians in Hungary have together launched a campaign of historical revisionism, which is most visible with regard to the interwar and Second World War periods, in order to strengthen the national consciousness among its citizens. This campaign has reinforced the exclusive ethnic perspective of Hungary's history, and serves as a norm for present day politics. In both Hungary and Romania national narratives maintain a hegemonic position thanks to the support from politicians and some historians. This undermines reconciliation and accountability with regard to both the individual and the shared history of the two nations.

    Migrant, officer and traitor to the motherland: the death sentence against Fredrich Sahlgård and perceptions of national belonging in Sweden during the Great Northern War

    In September 1717 a Swedish court martial accused the Danish officer Fredrich Sahlgård of treason, and during this trial defining Sahglård’s nationality was a focal question. Sahlgård had been born in Sweden, but had moved to Norway as a child and the defendant therefore claimed that he could not be considered a Swede. His judges, however, argued that Sahlgård was a Swede by birth and therefore bound by both god and nature to protect his native land. Based on this argument the court sentenced Sahlgård to death and a few days later he was shot.

    This court martial from the great northern war reveal the limitations of studying perceptions of national identity through normative sources. Student of national identity in early modern Sweden have primarily focused on what ideas of swedishness were communicated in state propaganda and elite discourse. Several authors have claimed that contemporary perceptions of loyalty were strongly centred on the person of the monarch and expressed through the politically potent term "fatherland" (sw. fädernesland). These sources, however, tell us little of how notions of nationality were applied in practice. During Sahlgård’s trial the military court defined swedishness in a way that not just ran counter to, but expressly rejected, contemporary norms. The judges disavowed the foundations of natural law, despite its status as contemporary legal dogma, and formulated an essentialist definition of nationality, based around the concept of “motherland” (sw. fosterland) – completely disregarding the royal propaganda.

    On the one hand, the case study suggests that the intense military mobilization in early 18th century Sweden had a significant impact on perceptions of national identity within the Swedish army, as the arguments of the court stands out from both contemporary Swedish and European norms defined by previous research. On the other hand, the study questions what actual role national identity played during the court martial. Sahlgård was sentenced to death for being a Swede, but notions of oaths and rank seem to have been just as important in defining bonds of loyalty as definitions of nationality – if not more so.

    Makromodeller, informationshantering och aktörskap – en väg framåt för mikrohistoria? Reinerus Broocmans Hushållsbok (1736–1739)2017In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 137, no 3, p. 411-436Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, there is a tendency among Swedish microhistorians to focus largely on empirical aspects of microhistory. However, an important aim of micro history has always been to problematize theoretical macro models. Such use of microhistory has often been limited to studies of modernization and/or the elite, inquiries that today have largely fallen out of favour. Consequently, the current theoretical relevance of microhistory can be questioned. This essay argues that microhistory still has an important role to play in theoretical discussions, if its aim is broadened. Specifically, it argues that microhistory should be used to discuss concepts of rationality, agency, and information processing. A microhistorical investigation of the Lutheran vicar Reinerus Broocman and his use of references in En fulständig swensk hus-hålds-bok (A Complete Swedish Book of Husbandry) (1736-1739) is used to problematize the use of such concepts in neo-institutionalism and network theories in the context of Swedish state-building research. These theories usually view information transactions as exchanges of stable units between either normal agents or entrepreneurs, who are consciously acting on the basis of a wealth-oriented rationale and principally constrained by institutions coupled to different agents of power. However, the Broocman case instead presents information transactions as exchanges, marred with mistakes, of fluid resources between normally exceptional agents, with similar but different rationalities, who act both consciously and unconsciously. The investigation also supports a view on information processing not as a zero-sum game between agents, but as a process partly happening outside of the agents' realm. These results are important not only when debating the postulates of institutionalism and network theories, but when discussing other perspectives that partly focus on information transactions, for example global history. However, for microhistory to fully embrace its potential to problematize theoretical macro models, microhistorians should use insights from other approaches with a similar focus, such as histoire croiseé and transfer history.

    The educational content of housekeeping – An analysis of ICA-Kuriren 1942

    In 1942 the practical knowledge of housekeeping in Sweden was formulated, legitimized and materialized largely under the influence of government actions. The period is characterized by ideals grounded in science and rationality, Second World War rationing and the societal project of folkhemmet, ”the people’s home.” The practice of housekeeping is investigated through an analysis of ICA-Kuriren, a periodical published by a consortium of food wholesalers, that was first issued in 1942 and was widely distributed to Swedish households. Located at the intersection of social history and the history of education, the focus is on the discursive construction of the figure of the ”housewife,” the most important agent in the sociopolitical and pedagogical process that aimed at changing practices of housekeeping. There were tensions in this discursive construction of the housewife between rational and non-rational thought, with the preference always being for the rational. It can be found in a variety of contrasts, between new and old knowledge and between the experienced and the inexperienced, and the knowledgeable and unknowledgeable housewife. Another tension was embedded in the encouragement to both be frugal and to buy and consume expensive items.

    Abstract [en]

    Probate inventories indicate that approximately 50 per cent of married workers in Swedish towns at the turn of the 20th century had financial assets and/or owned real estate. Although profligacy of course existed, workers in general seem to have been thrifty. Those without savings often had very low incomes and many dependents. Savings and the percentage of savers increased concurrently with rising real incomes and economic surpluses. Essential were also the introduction of new savings methods that led to a decreasing cost for saving. Most important were sickness and burial funds and endowment assurances. These collective solutions for saving were well suited to workers' needs and economic capacity, and workers quickly adapted their savings habits to the new conditions. In the case of endowments, there was even a tendency that they tried to save more than they could actually afford. The adaptation to new savings methods meant that there was a renewal of working-class saving over time. Individual savings, for example in banks, were successively replaced by collective savings. The latter totally dominated at the end of the period. The extent of the renewal varied among occupational groups and towns. Also notable was the variation between families with children and those without. The former prioritized life and endowment assurances, while the latter more often accumulated funds in bank accounts. There was also a renewal in saving motives. Precautionary saving dominated, but after the turn of the 20th century saving for old age and/or bequests became more common. However, accumulated funds were generally small and insufficient for full retirement in old age. The development of working-class saving in Sweden 1870-1914 shows many similarities with the development in Great Britain, although the former started later, and was faster and more compressed. An important explanation is that real wages rose more rapidly in Sweden than in Great Britain.
