    A synchronic approach to the Serek ha-Yahad (1QS): from text to social and cultural context2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the social and cultural contexts of 1QS (Serek ha-Yahad) by means of a textual study. The analysis of the text is performed in a synchronic perspective. This means that lexical choices, grammatical forms, references, topics, themes, and intertextuality are analyzed text-internally. By doing so, this study sheds new light on old questions of textual cohesion and coherence, questions that until now have been dealt with mostly from a diachronic perspective. The text analysis entails investigation in view of three interrelated dimensions of language function: ideational, interpersonal, and textual. These imply language as transmitting information, creating and sustaining relations, and functioning to organize itself into cohesive units. Although applying some of the terminology from the field of text linguistics (SFL), the focus in this study is on what a text means rather than why. This means that the semantic-pragmatic aspects of language are of foremost interest here. The analysis is performed from bottom and up, then from top down again. Words, phrases, and sentences are investigated up to the broadest linguistic level, namely, to the semantic discourse itself. With an understanding of the larger discourse at hand thanks to this analysis of textual cohesion and coherence, textual details are once again revisited and interpreted anew. In this work, 1QS is analyzed from beginning to end—chronologically, so to say. Then, at the end of each major section, the discourse is analyzed overall. Following the text analysis, conclusions of the investigations are presented. The conclusions argue that the hierarchal structure of the community and its stringent regulations are to be understood as a corrective in response to corrupt society. It is also argued that language in 1QS has a performative function. Rather than describing the way things are, it aspires to evoke the ideal society. Instead of understanding 1QS and the community mirrored in it as a deviant group with little or no contact with the surrounding world, it is then understood as a potent contribution to late Second Temple Jewish discourse concerning how to create a just society and a sanctifying cultic practice. In the final chapter, the insights gained from textual analysis of 1QS are brought into encounter with the theoretical framework posited by French historian and philosopher René Girard (1923–2015). In light of Girard’s philosophy, the hierarchal organization of the community (the Yahad) as well as its regulations can be interpreted as an effort to prevent a mimetic crisis. The function of the scapegoat in 1QS is discussed in light of Girard’s grand theory of the mechanisms of scapegoating in all societies. The study closes with the tentative hypothesis that the community in 1QS deconstructs the scapegoating mechanism by taking the role of the scapegoat upon itself.

    From Igra Rama to Beira Amikta?: Identity Crisis of ex-Haredi Community Members in Israel2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to analyze the process of disaffiliation of individuals born into ultraorthodoxHaredi communities in Israel. The focus is on the reformulation and reconstruction ofthe individual’s identity in a specific cultural context. Based on theory and qualitativeinterviews with former Haredi members and representatives of an exit organization in Israel(Out for Change), we demonstrate that the disaffiliation process in Israel is unique in certainrespects compared to similar processes elsewhere. While ex-Haredi’s in the U.S. are met by adiversity of possible identities in the multicultural society, according to previous research, theIsraeli counterparts encounter a “ready-made” Israeli version of a secularized national identity,rooted in Judaism and informed by religious myths and biblical narratives. Israeli ex-Haredimembers undergo a de-conversion process wherein one set of ideological beliefs, values, andnorms are exchanged into an Israeli national ersatz, both originating in the Jewish faith. Thisprocess is usually triggered by disillusionment with the segregated Haredi worldview, abuseand increased social interaction with the Israeli secular world mainly through media andInternet.

    Voices from South and North in dialogue: on diversity and education for the future2012In: British Journal of Religious Education, ISSN 0141-6200, E-ISSN 1740-7931, Vol. 34, no 1, p. 87-100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article texts by scholars from South Africa, Sweden and Great Britain are analysed. They contributed as invited speakers to a conference in Sweden in 2009 on changing societies, values, religions and education. Here a South–North dialogue on diversity and the future of education is constructed through the way their conference contributions are presented and analysed. Democracy and gender also appear as crucial themes. Out of the original 12 keynote contributions to the conference a selection is made, meaning that seven of them are focused on. What can be observed is (a) that the contributors from South Africa connect diversity and social justice; (b) that the gender researchers critically discuss the risks of the North imposing its theoretical framework on the South and search for ways out of that and (c) a preoccupation with a renewal of education recognising diversity but also looking for what could come beyond such an emphasis and form a common ground. The article constitutes an example of shared knowledge production where South and North meet. Conditions for that are critically reflected upon methodologically.

    What name are we? Global citizenship education for whom? Response to Madeleine Arnot.2010In: Values, religions and education in changing societies / [ed] Karin Sporre & Jan Mannberg, Springer, 2010, p. 67-74Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter aspects on a global citizenship education are discussed against the background of postcolonial relationships between North and South. This raises questions concerning the “situatedness” of us as knowers and how we position ourselves in North and South. I argue that the relationship to the global is different and varies, meaning that it matters where we are situated when discussing global citizenship education. When discussing this I draw on the critical feminist discussion on epistemology, my own praxis of having initiated and led student and teacher exchanges, and actively participated in research cooperation between Sweden and South Africa. Further, having a background in ethics and in feminist theology I reflect over resources for an empowering ethics within global citizenship education.

    Abstract [en]

    Societies go through changes. This book focuses primarily on two changes: (a) the fact that many societies through migration have become more multicultural over the last decades; and (b) that the matters of the relationships between women and men, the issues of gender, have also become important over the last decades, or the century. The context, that these changes are brought to have a bearing on in this book, is education – especially religious and values education.

    Meningsskapandeprocessen, sexuella ofredanden och upplevelser utifrån #metoo-rörelsen2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie har, genom en kvalitativ intervjustudie och utifrån Parks (2010) modellom meningsskapandeprocessen, undersökt berättelser om sexuella ofredanden och reaktionerefter #metoo-rörelsen. Tre intervjuer har genomförts och analyserats med hjälp avinnehållsanalys där resultatet beskrev hur respondenterna inom ramarna för sina respektivemeningssystem hanterade upplevelsen av sexuella ofredanden, om meningssystemetförändrades i denna process, samt hur meningssystemet förändrades när respondenterna kom ikontakt med #metoo-rörelsen. Parks (2010) modell visade god passform utifrånrespondenternas utsagor, vilka antydde att de befann sig i meningsskapandeprocessen snarareän att mening kring det sexuella ofredandet hade skapats. Resultatet tyder på att sexuellaofredanden, då de initierar en meningsskapandeprocess, skapar en diskrepans mellanupplevelsen av ofredandet och det tidigare etablerade meningssystemet.

    ’Don’t deal with symptoms, cure the disease’, the doctor said: How, during the 20th century, the Church of Sweden has worked with internal quality assurance instead of renewal of its membership.2012In: Church work and management in change / [ed] Kati Niemelä, Tampere, FI: Church Research Institute , 2012, p. 258-272Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For half a century, the Church of Sweden has experienced decline of participation in church activities. The level of participation in church activities decreases. Church statistics show that.

    At the same time, religious education has been dismantled in the public schools. The church’s education following infant baptism has disappeared, and the education offer before adolescent confirmation competes in a tough market with other teenager interests.

    A recent survey carried out in local setting shows that the level of knowledge and interest in religious matters and life values is low. The parishioners lack a language for talking about religion, and their knowledge about basic religious concepts are next to nil.

    These facts are related. Church management has led the church towards its grave. It has turned the blind eye to receding school responsibility for teaching the basics of Christianity. It has not established a faith school directed by the church itself and aimed at its young members. Instead church management has reformed its basic books and diversified its services, i. e. reforms which are meaningful only to a shrinking minority of the population, the faithful members.

    Extent and limit of virtuality in religious organizations2010In: Multi-religious societies – polarization, co-existence, indifference: The 20th Nordic conference in sociology of religion, University of Agder, 2010, 2010, p. 1-10Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In a number of religious traditions God is virtual. She/he is not expected to be present in one and the same place, but everywhere when individuals gather in her/his name. How far does this traditional and organizational acceptance of virtuality extend?

    One of the examples of limits being set up is the Vatican’s decision not to accept virtual performances of Holy Communion. Thereby physical presence of an ordained clergyman as well as the receivers of the elements becomes a prerequisite for the fulfillment of the Roman Catholics Church’s theological promise, that Christ himself will be present in the bread and the wine. This contrasts with other confessions and denominations, which – due to their type of theological teachings about the Eucharist – more or less accept participation in communion without physical presence. The stance of the Vatican also contrasts with religious groups whose existence and activity is totally based on Internet gatherings.

    In the paper I will trace outlines of acceptance of virtuality in churches, denominations and religious groups, from a point of departure of early the sociology of religion theoretical positions of Otto, Mensching, Durkheim and Weber.

    Pinocchio goes to church: the religious life of avatars2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Once hanging from Gepetto’s threads, Pinocchio freed himself from the dependency of his former master. The avatars of virtual worlds such as Pinocchio, being dependent upon their masters’ mouse clicks. Like Pinocchio, the avatars are social beings, interacting, socializing, flirting with their fellow avatars, and going to church. Some even build their own church. In a community without geographical borders a prayer meeting may gather participants without concern for temporal and spatial limitations.

    Helland (2005) distinguishes between religion online (the situation in which organized religions (churches, congregations etc) establish a presence on the web, whereas the term religious organizations’ attempts to be of service to their actual and potential members. Through church may do missionary and evangelizing work, by being present offering guidance when web users look for answers.

    Woodhead och Heelas (2000, 2005) have suggested a subjective turn of religion in the West, from “life-as” to “subjective-life” forms of the sacred, i.e. religion giving way to spirituality. When studying religious practice among avatars in virtual worlds one observes that there is a significant turn towards community in that particular kingdom of subjectivity. Avatars seem to seek out religious community, and participate in prayer meetings and services, thereby showing a willingness to accept a certain, pre-defined form of spirituality.

    In this paper it will be discussed whether avatar religiosity, seen as a culmination of the subjective turn, is an avant-garde turning back to its origins, life-as, and religion-as. If that is the case it will have obvious repercussions on organized religion, on church, mission, and missiology.

    Pinocchio going to church: christian avatars2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

     

    Once hanging from Gepetto’s threads, Pinocchio freed himself from the dependency of his former master. The avatars of virtual worlds such as Second Life are far behind the wooden fellow, still dependent upon their masters’ mouse clicks.

    Avatars act as social beings, interact, socialize, flirt, and go to church. Some even build their own church. In a community without geographical borders a prayer meeting may gather participants without concern for temporal and spatial limitations.

    Helland (2005) distinguishes between religion online (the situation in which organized religions (churches, congregations etc) establish a presence on the web, whereas the term perhaps unexpectedly, choose traditional Christian church buildings and services as their form of Woodhead och Heelas (2000, 2005) have suggested a subjective turn of religion in the West, from “life-as” to “subjective-life” forms of the sacred, i.e. religion giving way to spirituality. When studying religious practice among avatars in virtual worlds one observes that there is a significant turn towards community in that particular kingdom of subjectivity. Avatars seem to seek out religious community, and participate in prayer meetings and services, thereby showing a willingness to accept a certain, pre-defined form of spirituality.

    In this paper it will be discussed whether avatar religiosity, seen as a culmination of the subjective turn, is an avant-garde turning back to its origins, life-as, and religion-as. If so, it will have obvious consequences for organized religion, not least Christianity.
