    The power of national narratives: The lack of genuine efforts to come to terms with the past in Hungary and Romania, and the role of historians2016In: Historisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0345-469X, E-ISSN 2002-4827, Vol. 136, no 3, p. 441-471Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the power of national narratives and the lack of genuine efforts to come to terms with the past in Hungary and Romania. Hungary and Romania have experienced a common history marked by conflicts, changing borders, and totalitarian regimes. The two countries have not succeeded in overcoming issues in their common past. Instead, national narratives have been institutionalized in textbooks and among historians, even in the international context. Historians have narrated the nation's history under the strong influence of political agendas. This political force supports the hegemonic positions of the national narratives today. The national narratives are not only disseminated domestically, but are also reflected in articles about the two countries in encyclopedias abroad, such as the Swedish National Encyclopedia (Nationalencyklopedin). Romania has undertaken more efforts to come to terms with its past than Hungary has, in assuming responsibility for the Holocaust and investigating crimes against humanity during communism for example. Hungary's position on the Holocaust has been contradictory. On the one hand, Hungarian officials have admitted the Hungarian state's responsibility. However, on the other hand, leading historians appointed by the Hungarian government have explicitly claimed that Nazi-Germany alone was responsible for the Holocaust. The officially sanctioned responsibility assumed by the Hungarian and Romanian governments should be seen as sign of political correctness rather than genuine reconciliation. Politicians and historians in Hungary have together launched a campaign of historical revisionism, which is most visible with regard to the interwar and Second World War periods, in order to strengthen the national consciousness among its citizens. This campaign has reinforced the exclusive ethnic perspective of Hungary's history, and serves as a norm for present day politics. In both Hungary and Romania national narratives maintain a hegemonic position thanks to the support from politicians and some historians. This undermines reconciliation and accountability with regard to both the individual and the shared history of the two nations.

    Lingon Red Sun: Sexuality, Alienation and Swedishness in Swedish Colonial Novels2020In: Historisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0345-469X, E-ISSN 2002-4827, Vol. 140, no 3, p. 498-528Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reviews four novels, published between 1945 and 2018 and set in the Swedish-Caribbean colony of St. Barthelemy during the early nineteenth century, in order to examine changes in the perception of Swedish colonialism and slavery during the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. Questions regarding Swedishness are most apparent in the early novels, where Sweden is depicted as a civilizing force, creating order in a chaotic environment. While in Ur Havets Skum [From the Sea Foam] (1945), this is framed within a logic of resisting tropical temptation and miscegenation, in Den Gudomliga On [The Divine Island] (1982) it is rather through the spreading of enlightenment and abolitionist ideals. However, as depictions of slavery become harder to reconcile with modernday perceptions of Swedish morality, the colonial milieu depicted in Swedish literature becomes increasingly strange and alienating. This is manifested in themes of guilt, but also magic, transformation, loss of meaning and language barriers, with protagonists struggling to justify their place in slave society or mitigate its cruelties. They turn from active participants in slave society to passive observers of it, in De Ofria [The Unfree] (2017) going so far as rejecting their own status as protagonist within the novel. Thus, the depictions of St. Barthelemy within the novels reflect Swedish society's growing failure to find meaning in colonialism and its inability to consider a white Swedish protagonist to be much more than a witness of historic cruelty.
