    Against Japanese and Italian Imperialism: The Anti-War Campaigns of Communist International Trade Union Organizations, 1931 – 19362018In: Moving the social. Journal of social history and the history of social movements, ISSN 2197-0386, E-ISSN 2197-0394, Vol. 60, p. 121-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay discusses the international anti-war campaigns of the International of Seamen and Harbour Workers (ISH) and the International Trade Union Committee of Negro Workers(ITUCNW) against Japanese imperialism in Manchuria and Italian imperialism in Ethiopia during the first half of the 1930s. Both crises propelled international campaigns, ‘Hands off China’ and ‘Hands off Abyssinia’, that were orchestrated by the Third (Communist) International or the Comintern and the Red International of Labour Unions (Profintern) and their affiliated organisations such as the ISH and ITUCNW. Comintern / Profintern anti-war campaigns were organized under the banner of the prevailing ‘class-against-class’ strategy. In practice, this meant that the campaigns were both calls for international solidarity and at the same time attempts to position communist activities against those of the ‘social fascists’, i.e., socialist, social democratic, reformist and / or syndicalist controlled parties and trade unions.

    'Boycott the Nazi Flag': The anti-fascism of the International of Seamen and Harbour Workers2019In: Anti-fascism in the Nordic Countries: New Perspectives, Comparisons and Transnational Connections / [ed] Kasper Braskén, Nigel Copsey and Johan A. Lundin, London and New York: Routledge , 2019, p. 124-142Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter discusses the anti-fascist campaigns orchestrated by the International of Seamen and Harbour Workers (ISH) in Northern Europe during the 1930s. The organisation was a short-lived transnational radical coordinating umbrella body for communist-dominated/controlled trade unions of maritime transport workers established in 1930 during the ‘Third Period’ of the Communist International. The chapter explores the establishment of anti-war committees in Scandinavian harbours during the Manchurian Crisis in 1931–1932; the intensification of agitation and propaganda work of the Interclubs in the Scandinavian countries among German seamen. It highlights the intertwined relationship between local and national campaigns launched by the ISH and its sections in the Scandinavian countries and Comintern policies on a global level. Communist agitation and propaganda among the maritime transport workers was initially organised through the International Propaganda Committee of Transport Workers. There had been a vision of an umbrella organisation for radical maritime labour unions, that is a Red International of Water Transport Workers’ Unions.

    För kampen internationellt! Transportarbetarnas globala kampinternational och dess verksamhet i Nordeuropa under 1930-talet2019Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sjömännens och hamnarbetarnas international eller ISH grundades i Hamburg hösten 1930. ISH presenterade sig själv att vara sjötransportarbetarnas kampinternational med ambitionen att framstå som en radikal motpol till den Internationella transportarbetarfederationen ITF. Organisationen kontrollerades av kommunisterna och var en avdelning inom Röda fackföreningsinternationalen. ISH eftersträvade en global räckvidd men skulle verka på ett lokalt och nationellt plan. I de skandinaviska länderna utgjorde sjötransportarbetarnas röda fackföreningsopposition internationalens nationella sektioner vilka ansvarade för genomförandet av nationella och internationella aktioner, såsom strejker, blockader av fartyg och aktioner mot transport av krigsmaterial. Lika ökänd var fackföreningsoppositionen för sitt agerande inom de etablerade sjötransportarbetarförbunden när de försökte att utmanövrera den sittande förbundsledningen. Samtida socialdemokratiska observatörer svartmålade organisationen som en ”kristidsföreteelse” som byggdes på en ”dynghög”, vilket vittnar om den djupa klyfta som gick tvärs igenom arbetarklassen under 1920- och 1930-talet. Boken är den första studien om ISH och dess verksamhet i Nordeuropa, en global historia som utspelade sig i marginalen och utkanten av det politiska och fackliga etablissemanget.

    The European and Eurafrican population of the danish forts on the Eighteenth-Century gold coast2018In: African Economic History, ISSN 0145-2258, E-ISSN 2163-9108, Vol. 46, no 1, p. 36-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay focuses on the demographic consequences of entanglement in the Danish possessions on the Gold Coast in West Africa. Two sets of data will be analyzed, one on the European composition of the Danish enclaves and discusses demographic trends and ruptures, the other on the Eurafrican population in the Danish enclaves. The first part of the study focusses on the survival of the European personnel in the Danish possessions on the Gold Coast. Similar to the experience of other European trading nations in West Africa, the Guinea Coast was a "White Man's Grave" for the Danish personnel as about half of the newly arrived staff members died within the first year on the coast. The second part deals with the employment and careers of the Eurafricans, i.e., the children of Danish fathers and local African or Eurafrican women. While the Danish authorities enlisted some of the Eurafrican boys as military staff members, the fate of the Eurafrican girls was unclear. In contrast to the Europeans, the Eurafrican population seldom succumbed to the coastal climate. Instead, demographic data suggests that their life expectancy was relatively high, at least compared to that of the European personnel.

    Cotton and Salt: Swedish Colonial Aspirations and the Transformation of Saint Barthélemy in the Eighteenth Century2020In: Environment and History, ISSN 0967-3407, E-ISSN 1752-7023, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 261-287Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The environmental history of the Caribbean has been strongly associated with the consequences of sugar cane agriculture and extreme weather phenomena. Consequently, other aspects of environmental change at play in the Caribbean region have remained less known. However, islands such as Anguilla, Barbuda, and Saint Barthélemy had no or very few sugar plantations. The fact that non-sugar producing islands had to find other ways of supporting themselves shaped their environmental history in ways that differed from that of the sugar islands. These alternative environmental histories deserve to be highlighted when presenting the historiography of the Caribbean. In this article, the island of Saint Barthélemy serves as a case study of an island where sugar cane agriculture was absent and tropical storms and hurricanes were of lesser consequence. In outlining the environmental history of Saint Barthélemy during the first decades of Swedish colonial rule, in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, the article shows that the Swedish takeover resulted in environmental changes. Sweden’s ambitions and expectations concerning the improvement of the island were initially high and much effort was put into the development of the economy. The rationale for the Swedish plans was to exploit the few and scarce resources of the island, but it was the harbour that became the most successful endeavour.
