    Arkiv och perspektiv: Finns det en motsättning mellan populärhistoria och genushistoria?2011In: Scandia, ISSN 0036-5483, Vol. 77, no 2, p. 144-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many of the history books and articles that address a broader readership tend to focus on 'great men'. Popular history publications often offer a form of history that is problematic in its gendering, and that often bears no relation to cutting-edge historical research and/or the historical canon. In view of this, it behoves the writers of popular history to be more aware of their choice of perspective and to adopt a more robust approach to source criticism. Designating the issue outlined here as a type of 'methodological gender-blindness' points to the fact that it is one aspect of a wider structural problem. Since historians have in the past been at the forefront of the development and dissemination of gender theories, it is argued here that it is of the greatest importance for the continued social relevance of the discipline as a whole that historians engage the public by means of popular history. Academic historians should face the challenge of writing works of popular history and of bringing their critical skills to bear on popular history products.

    Ett svenskt bakslag: kontextskapande i diskussioner om Susan Faludis Backlash2015In: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap, ISSN 1654-5443, E-ISSN 2001-1377, Vol. 36, no 1-2, p. 53-72Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1990s, the publication of Susan Faludi's Backlash. The Undeclared War Against American Women provoked discussions amongst literary critics in Sweden. Particularly feminist and Women's Studies communities embraced the book's thesis and probed whether Swedish women had experienced a backlash similar to the one revealed and conceptualised by Faludi. The aim of this article is to study the ways in which these communities used Backlash to interpret the political context in Sweden. A key player in the discussions of Backlash and in promoting the idea of a Swedish backlash was a newly established political network called Stödstrumporna (The Support Stockings). The network was initiated by a number of well-known Swedish feminists and as a reaction to the outcome of the general election in 1991, in which the representation of women in the Parliament decreased. In addition, recent national statistics had shown that the income gap between men and women had widened during the 1980's. Stödstrumporna interpreted both of these events as examples of a broader backlash against Swedish women. My supposition is that the labelling of specific contexts as examples of backlash can be understood as a kind of context making. Through an intersectional analysis, this article inquires to what extent the naming of contexts produces ideas of nation and gender. In Historical Studies, context has been used as a way to conceptualise how historical events are products of the time and place in which they occur. Without disputing this view of context, this article argues that context to a large extent is a narrative produced by contemporary actors who have a vested interest in presenting a context, which promotes their own positions and agendas.

    Innan forskningen blev radikal: en historiografisk studie av arbetarhistoria och kvinnohistoria2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation studies the emergence of Labour History and Women’s History as academic fields of research in Sweden after World War II. The aim is to study the ways in which Labour History and Women’s History were presented in early writings: in research publications, book reviews, and scholarly debates. Labour History and Women’s History emerged within, and engaged scholars from, a wide range of academic disciplines such as Economic History, History, and History of Literature. A key issue is to discuss whether or not these early writings challenged norms of knowledge production. How did Labour History and Women’s History approach epistemological and methodological standards?

    The point of departure is various historiographical accounts of the emergence of Labour History and Women’s History. By making a close connection between research and the social and political movements of the time, previous historiographical accounts have placed the emergence of Labour History and Women’s History in the 1970s. Although there is no doubt that this particular kind of research became popular in the 1970s, the construction of the 1970s as a starting point is problematic. Both in Sweden and internationally, labour history and women’s history have been produced since the turn of the twentieth century.

    Following the work of scholars such as Clare Hemmings, Sara Ahmed, and Edward W. Said, this thesis contrasts analysis of early writings with historiographical accounts of Labour History and Women’s History. The dissertation shows that subjects that have been associated with the academic context of the 1970s existed in discussions predating this decade. For example, discussions of power structures relating to class and gender and the critique of traditional epistemological and methodological standards both share similarities with discussions said to have been initiated in the 1970s. Consequently, the thesis highlights the importance of not solely focusing on progress and change in studies of past research, but also examining similarities and continuities. By focusing on similarities and continuities, it is argued that recurrent processes and dynamics relating to research can be disclosed.

    Plädering för vikten av bildning på högskola: Recension av Medborgerlig bildning – Om varför man studerar på högskola av Henrik Bohlin2018In: Respons : recensionstidskrift för humaniora & samhällsvetenskap, ISSN 2001-2292, no 6, p. 70-71Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Henrik Bohlins plädering för vikten av bildning riktar sig till studenter, eftersom de ofta förefaller präglade av ett nyliberalt nyttotänkande. För att utveckla samhällsengagerade medborgare krävs fler bildande inslag i utbildningen, menar Bohlin. De studenter som läser honom kommer att finna att han lever som han lär: han skriver engagerat, analytiskt och kritiskt.
