  • InterNacionalistas : identifikation och främlingskap i svenska solidaritetsarbetares berättelser från Nicaragua
  • 2007
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The aim of this thesis is to explore what solidarity workers from Sweden narrate about and from activities in Nicaragua. I focus on how identities reflect nationalising, racialising and gendering imaginations, and how these are being handled within the context of an international solidarity movement – with the ambition to strive for global justice. My search for answers takes its point of departure in a wide gender-oriented postcolonial perspective. With an understanding of identities and places as relational and plastic, postcolonial theory attempts to see the inevitable dilemmas of colonialism, to visualise people who have been sacrificed in the name of colonialism and nationalism. It is a theoretical field concerned with the struggle for the word, values and actions categorised by a (post)colonial order. The dissertation is divided into six chapters. After the introductory chapter, chapter 2 contains a discussion of the concept solidarity as a valuable designation for these activities, connected to a national self-image and as a determining factor for the informants' understanding of their identities. One fundamental theme in this study is the tension concerning “white”, “western”, “Swedish” solidarity workers speaking for and working with people in Nicaragua. In Chapter 3, “To make oneself trustworthy”, I take a closer look at this and discusses how the interviewees verbalised strategies to handle possible positions and the paradoxes of their employment. In chapter 4 “Nationalising gender”, I examine the speech of women, men, machismo and gender equality – and how they interrelate with other factors within the stories from the period in Nicaragua. The difficulties to intervene as a Swedish volunteer or coordinator in Nicaragua were well known among the interviewees/narrators and their organisations. How and what activities for change could be in different parts of the world were, and are, repeated questions within (at least this part of) the Swedish international solidarity movement. This is one reason why the solidarity organisations emphasised the importance of creating space for social change via information and moulding of public opinion. In Chapter five, “Describe Nicaragua”, I analyse the written stories by solidarity workers. I take departure in a few of the dominating themes and clarify how Nicaragua was mediated to a Swedish speaking reader. I argue that the stories of the solidarity workers are captured between recognising difference and creating stereotypes and exotic projections. Even though their object is the opposite, they tend to produce representations which demand the Other to stay in the place of difference. In the very last part I discuss some problems with being the “voice of the poor”. The dissertation concludes with a short summary of some of the most central themes. Here I refer to the narrated liminality and inherited boundaries of the employment. I discuss the anti-imperialist and feminist work with a national dead weight and the efforts to create alternative images and translocal subject positions. I end the study by reflecting on the difficulties of an internationalist “we” and with reference to Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, I call for “unlearning our privileges as our loss”.

  • A Nineteenth‐century Finnish Reading Society and Its World Views : Commerce, Civilization and Colonialism Examined
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Svensk biblioteksforskning. - Borås : Högskolan i Borås, Institutionen Biblioteks- och Informationsvetenskap. - 0284-4354 .- 1653-5235. ; 17:1, s. 1-27
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The main objective of this essay is to examine the ʹworld viewsʹ of the nineteenth‐century Finnish circulatory library, ʺLäsesällskapet i Gamlakarlebyʺ that operated under mild imperial (Russian) supervision during its active period (1800‐ca 1870). For this purpose I have studied 93 beyond‐Europe books of travel and geography. I have identified two major ideological divides: a colonial that promotes ongoing aggressive Western expansion and a conciliatory one that mediates doubts and resistance. Samuel Ödmann, the translator and Uppsala professor of theology, represents the former divide; Anders Chydenius, one of the founding members, economist and clergyman, the latter. The collection engages, it is shown, the local reader of direct or indirect experiences of sailing, the ship industry and commerce which were the major trades of (Gamla)Karleby at the time. The Africa and West Indies related texts are a particularly rich feature. Slavery andt he unlucky Swedish part in colonization (Sierra Leone and St. Barthélemy) concern the readers.

  • Afrika i adertonhundratalets Gamlakarleby : om kolonialism, slavhandel och motstånd
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Horisont:organ för Svenska Österbottens litteraturförening. - Närpes, Finland : Svenska Österbottens litteraturförening. - 0439-5530. ; 55:1, s. 40-47
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Essän diskuterar en liten samling reseskildringar om Afrika som ingår i Läsesällskapets i Gamlakarleby bibliotek i Karleby, Finland. Böckerna insamlades under tidigt adertonhundratal under en tid då denna stad var en av Nordens främsta och rikaste hamnstäder. Hypotesen är att detta faktum även reflekterar det stora intresset för en värld även utanför Europa. Essän diskuterar två förhållningssätt som samlingen gestaltar: en kolonial och 'civilisatorisk' och en annan kolonialkritisk. Den förra synen representeras av översättaren Samuel Ödmann och den senare av riksdagsmannen och kaplanen Anders Chydenius, en av Läsesällskapets grundare.

  • 'Att leva ut slaven i mig' : postkoloniala perspektiv på Sara Lidman i apartheids Sydafrika 1960-1961
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Tidskrift för litteraturvetenskap. - 1104-0556 .- 2001-094X. ; 2, s. 62-77
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The Swedish writer Sara Lidmann (1923-2004) wrote Jag och min son ("I and My Son") after a brief stint in apartheid's South Africa in 1960-61, from where she was expelled for a violation of the Immorality Act. Based on a close, interrelated study of her diary, her letters and the two manuscripts (first published in 1961 and revised and re-published in 1963), this essay ("'To outlive the slave in me': Postcolonial Perspectives on Sara Lidman in Apartheid's South Africa 1960-1961") examines the colonial boundary crisis of the Self. The major protagonists in the novel(s) embody variously aspects of the writer's angst as it developed in the Johannesburg colonial setting of persecuted ANC members, the elite of the local Swedish community, and the pressure of her anticolonial frustrations. Sexuality is a major element in the "nervous condition" that characterizes the fragmented and confusing conceptualization of the novel. Its extensive rewriting was an attempt at strengthening its ideological, anti-imperial modus, pushing the novel into the environs of the postcolonial allegory such as in such texts as Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea (1966), Tsitsi Dangarembga's Nervous Conditions (1988) and Bessie Head's A Question of Power (1974). A second self-castigating theme, this essay claims, is the impact of the religious background of the author as born into -- but never at peace with -- strong evangelical and paternal practices. 'Outliving the slave' (a quote from one of her letters) in the title of the essay proposes a Fanonian reading of the circulatory and traumatizing notion of rebellion (against Apartheid) and submission (to it). The third theme involves the idealization of the child that also involves a colonial cul-de-sac of self-positioning expressed both in the novel and the writer's attempts at adopting an African child (never realized).
