    Abstract [en]

    Narratives about Europeans entering so called premodern cultures have a long tradition, and “tribetv” based on arranged visits from Europeans to “the world’s remotest tribes” has become a growing genre today. In the documentary Tribal Wives, six British women where described as experiencing cultures that had “hardly changed in centuries” and getting one month to reflect over their habits and priorities in life. In search for contrasts between female lives, love and heterosexual contracts the program turn into self-representations based on Eurocentric imaginations. Tribal Wives become a therapeutic journey (set by BBC) aiming to heal modern souls, an adventure to pre-historic land with forgotten truths for the modern woman to bring back to the future.

    Abstract [en]

    Ingmar Bergman’s name is virtually synonymous with intellectual European films and high culture but lately scholars have been trying to show that Bergman worked in a variety of fields, including popular culture, and that his work often was commercial, popular and more easily accessible than his auteur image would suggest. This article explores some of the soap commercials that Bergman made in the early 1950s, which still remain a little known part of his oeuvre. The focus also lies on the publication of Bergman’s scripts as serial “filmnovels” in the weekly women’s magazine Allers Familjejournal (1959–1967) and on the transformation of the image of Bergman by his popular later works Scenes from a Marriage (1973) and Fanny and Alexander (1982) and through famous images that reappear throughout the spectrum of popular culture, most notably the image of Death from The Seventh Seal (1957).

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the construction of death in popular media's use of surveillance footage, and more specifically images depicting the time before death occurs. There are many explanations why these kinds of images of death seem to fit the media format: They are assumed to be authentic; they potentially produces a point of identification for spectators; and finally they represent the time before it is all too late – before death occurs. Hence, they paradoxically represent also hope.

    From realism to post truth? News, museums and higher education against fake news and fact resistance

    Recently, the problem with fake news, fact resistance and the growing digital, global circulation of disinformation have caused debates and worries, and posed a challenge for several institutions of knowledge in society. In this article, we discuss how the news industry, museums and higher education confront the challenges of the ‘post truth’ era. We can see a mobilization by these institutions in Sweden: The news industry has initiated so-called fact checking sites, the major museums create exhibitions about false news and educate youth in digital literacy and many universities have launched initiatives to legitimize scientific knowledge production, thereby safeguarding professional authority. However, these initiatives are faced with dilemmas concerning how concepts of knowledge, truth and facts are negotiated and understood. This article discusses such epistemological issues in general, and focuses in particular on the risk of falling into the trap of so called neorigorism.

    The Averted Woman – Subjectivity in Interpretations of Pictures

    Having collected seventy-six photographs and paintings of women seen from behind the author is reflecting on the meaning of this motive. Why have the photographers and the painters, mostly men from four centuries, chosen to represent the women by their backs? Are the women just (secretly) observed from behind, or are they actively turning away from the gaze of the onlooker? The author decides for the second interpretation and makes a connection to experiences of averted women in his own childhood and marriages. The conclusive question is: How subjective may a cultural researcher be doing reflexive interpretations?

    Pietà - Jungfru Marias sorg och Kristi död i svensk medeltid2013In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, no 2, p. 14-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Pietà was introduced in Swedish medieval art during the late fourteenth century and this article is focussing on its expressions of grief and death. The popularity of the Pietà can be explained by the historical context (the Black Death and the Hundred Years War), hard times that made death and despair extremely present, connected to sin, and a common experience for all no matter of social hierarchies. Virgin Mary is a vital part in the Pietà as she is both an intercessor for humans who wants forgiveness for their sins and the voice of her son’s message since he can speak no more. It is through her story, experience and grief that humans can both understand and find the merciful love Christ has promised after death that will guarantee eternal life in Heaven

    Abstract [en]

    Muslim roundtable discussion on violence against women

    How should Muslims who live in a society like Sweden relate themselves to the laws of Shari’a that stands in sharp contrast to the Swedish laws? For example the verse in the Koran that allows a man to reprove his wife under certain circumstances using forcible means. Are all Muslims united in this matter? To judge by the discussions among a group of Muslim women who participated in a roundtable discussion at a summer camp in Sweden, in the summer of 2008 – we can establish the fact that there are different opinions in the subject.

    One group believed Shari’a laws of that kind should be put on ice – i.e. not put into practice when they are in conflict with a modern perspective on humans. Another group maintained the verse of the Koran shouldn’t be interpreted as an encouragement to physical assault of women. According to them the verse should be interpreted symbolically not literally. A third group considered the verse of the Koran as God’s words that should be carried out without hesitation.

    The roundtable discussion among the women in the summer camp is a miniature of the contemporary intern Muslim debate. Muslim organisations in the women’s movement in Muslim countries that actively fights against abuse of women, and female and male theorists who believe the women hostile Shari’a laws should be interpreted through a historic-critical perspective, are to be found as participants in the debate. The latter uphold such Shari’a laws to be seen as an expression for the patriarchal culture. Even here the opinions differ, however the common link is that the criticism is aimed towards the preferential rights of interpretation for men. Representatives for the historic-critical model are of the opinion that it creates distance from the recurring and endless drill on religious dogma and in return creates space for intellectual reflection.

    Abstract [en]

    Writing ethnography involves retelling a story and carrying the voices of others in order to describe and explain a cultural phenomenon. This article argues that the ethnographer cannot write in such a close manner without great difficulties when today's search engines operate with unprecedented vigour. Tracing a text string using Google takes less than a second and this has great implications for the ability to provide quotations if the researcher is to follow ethical guidelines to protect and to keep their informants anonymous. Further, this article discusses ethical implications involved in online studies of blogs where the content is of a sensitive and private nature. To undertake such research while showing respect for the informant is a challenging task, given the researchers need to adhere to the key issues in research ethics. This article specifically problematizes the ethics of informed consent and confidentiality as it provides a particular challenge for the researcher engaged in studies of affective online sharing.

    Abstract [en]

    There’s a saying that sport is just a game, meaning that it’s not that important if you lose. Although it is easy to dismiss this as a false statement, the essay argues, with the German philosopher Theodor W Adorno, that it is the fact that sport is a game, a play, that gives it a critical potential. Like all games sport has the power to reveal that what we regard as real and necessary could be different. Sport has the potential to release rationality itself from its forced instrumentality – in that sense it resembles art. However, since sport is captive in a larger instrumental project this potential can’t be realized. In Adorno’s perspective, a child’s play is different in that sense: it opens itself to a “beyond” in the most mundane things, which thus disclose a dangerous promise that everything might be different.

    Abstract [en]

    The Fleeting Sense of Smell (Den undflyende lukten)

    This is an overview of the elusive sense of smell, both from a historical/cultural and psychological perspective. We follow two themes. In the first, we describe the repeated efforts to understand and categorize human olfaction, from antiquity to present day. We disseminate how smell has been positioned in sensory hierarchies, describe odor classifications systems and discuss differing views on the relationship between odor and health. The second theme regards how odors and the sense

    itself has been used as a means for understanding, separating and classifying other phenomena. Odors have throughout history been used to de- marcate class boundaries; the (non-)reliance of the sense of smell has been seen as an indication of civilization. Olfactory acuity is used to separate humans from animals, women from men, and young from old. These smell-based taxonomies persist, despite having no clear backing from em- pirical evidence. Finally, we suggest that the inter- est in smell may be on the rise, both from a societal and scientific perspective.

    Varför ska dom få?: Vardagsrasism mot samer i läsarkommentarer på tre svenska nyhetssajter2014In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, no 1, p. 41-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to increased racism many Swedish news sites have adopted new strategies to deal with offensive user comments, such as pre-moderation of comments and more strict moderation policies. Despite this many Sami still perceive that hostile comments about Sami continue to increase on news sites. In this article I discuss possible reasons to why racist comments slip by newspaper gatekeepers. Everyday racism, that is subtle forms of discrimination, often presented as neutral or common-sense facts or as collectively shared and therefore unchallenged racial stereotypes, is seen as one key factor. Others factors could be journalists’ lack of knowledge about Sami history and culture, newsrooms lack of time and resources, journalistic routines and/or reader comments commercial potential.

    Insecurity as Critical Necessity. Sovereign Research Subjects, the Concept of Excellence and the Importance of Negative Emotions in Academia

     The article explore the operations of emotions of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and ambivalence in the context of the neoliberal academia of today and it’s focus on excellence, competition and constant self-evaluations. Maria Jönsson and Anna Rådström investigate what these ”negative” emotions do (Ahmed 2004) in relation to a concept such as “excellence”. They discuss how these “doings” can be understood and how they relate to questions of power and hierarchy. Jönsson and Rådström suggest that emotions of vulnerability and inadequacy in research should not be seen as something to be overcome, but rather as something to engage with and pay attention to. These emotions provide us with a sensitivity to research as an open process, open to the unexpected and the “not-yet” (Sedgwick 2003) instead of producing “knowingness” (Scheman 2011) and sovereign research subjects. Jönsson and Rådström utilize the theoretical work of Hélène Cixous and of Judith Butler (2003) in order to discuss how insecurity and ambivalence can be used in self-reflexive and critical work in academia.
