Abstract [sv]

Vuxna bör följa uppmaningen från ungdomarna i Fridays for future-rörelsen och protestera eftersom det politiska ledarskapet är otillräckligt. Omfattande och långvariga påtryckningar från hela samhället behövs för att få de politiskt ansvariga att utöva det ledarskap som klimatkrisen kräver, skriver 171 forskare i samhällsvetenskap och humaniora.

Abstract [en]

In the mid-1990s, the concept ‘ecological modernisation’ was established to characterise the perception that environmental protection and economic growth are not mutually exclusive but rather comprise a solid foundation for sustainable development. We argue in this essay that believing that modernisation, economic growth and a healthy environment could go hand-in-hand was nothing new as far as Sweden was concerned. Rather, it is a belief that developed during the ‘folkhem era (1930s–1970s) due to an extensive dialogue about the proper relationship between nature and society in the construction of the welfare state. We highlight the idea of ‘dissonances’ as a salient metaphor describing the disharmonic relation between old and new and modern society and modern nature. According to advocates of modernisation, it was important to overcome dissonances – backwardness, inefficient use of natural resources and negative ‘side effects’ of societal progress such as pollution and environmental damage – between society and nature. Instead, by rational thinking and new technology it would be possible to make society and nature go hand-in-hand and thereby enhance human welfare. However, broadened knowledge and intellectual horizons and critiques of progress have brought new problem complexes and dissonances to light. Like the dream of Sweden the modern Model Nation, the definitive answer to the difficulties of the environmental issue has constantly been deferred.

Abstract [en]

This essay is a contribution to the historiography of Lennart von Post and the early development of quantitative pollen analysis. Based on von Post’s own publications and source material from the archives of Stockholm University College, where he was appointed professor in 1929, the essay offers four points on von Post’s scientific identity and the collective work through which quantitative pollen analysis, or “pollen statistics”, came into being. The four points are, first, that von Post made his career as a geologist; second, that he framed pollen analysis as a means to tackle Quaternary geological issues; third, that his work benefitted from collective work, both in the field and in the laboratory; and fourth, that quantitative pollen analysis was not accepted without criticism, taking some years to break through beyond the Geological Survey, where von Post worked before he became professor.

Abstract [en]

Plant physiology (or rather "physiological botany") was established as a discipline at Umeå University in 1967. The Norwegian botanist Per Halldal, who was an expert on photobiology and inventor of research instruments, became the first professor. Through dedicated work and recruitment of gifted graduate students Halldal laid the foundation for the Unit – and eventually the Department – of Plant Physiology. Yet, he did not stay long in Umeå but left already in 1972. The aim of the chapter is to explore this history against the backdrop of the Swedish research policy of the 1960s as well as the development of Umeå University as an organization. Questions asked include: What were the arguments for establishing a chair in precisely physiological botany at Umeå University? Why did Halldal get the position and what did he accomplish during his stay in Umeå? Why did he decide to leave after only five years?
