Abstracts

Here are presented abstracts for the various presentations. You can either scroll through the list or click on the names in the program to access the respective abstract

Alf Björnberg, professor i musikvetenskap
Popular music and television: the case of Melodifestivalen
Taking Melodifestivalen, the Swedish qualifications for the Eurovision Song Contest, as the point of departure, this presentation discusses some general aspects of how the relationship between popular music and (public-service) television has been shaped from the 1950s until today. It will be demonstrated how this event has been affected by general tendencies of change in this regard, while also being shaped by the demands of the particular context. The changes observed may be theorized in terms of both a mediatization (“TV-fication”) of popular music and a musicalization of the medium of television. The research presented is a part of the research project Vardagens apparatur (Everyday Devices), funded by Vetenskapsrådet.

A state affair? Notions of the state and state violence in Scandinavian trans contexts
This presentation argues that notions of the state can prove to be vital not only for what type of politics social justice activists decide to pursue, but also for the conditions for organizing itself, and hence explores the function of narratives of the state in the work of Scandinavian trans activists. Two tendencies can be spotted: on the one hand that theoretical frameworks that analyze governance, state violence and state neglect are imported from the U.S. context, and on the other hand that the state is interpellated as an actor in the work for social change and recognition.

Karolina Westling, doktorand i filmvetenskap
Who is the enfant terrible in L’Enfant d’en haut?
There have been many examples of rule breaking children in French cinema, but in a less authoritarian society, provocations are portrayed in more complicated and new ways. I will discuss the complex relation between maturity, responsibility and criminality in L’enfant d’en haut by Ursula Meier (2012). The film displays an extreme but not impossible age and gender constellation, where a boy survives a precariat situation by stealing.

Anti-gender movements at universities, in media and in politics – a panel discussion
In focus for this discussion are the strong movements in politics, media, but also at the university against critical research on gender and racism. We will discuss how the university protects and supports these scholarly fields. What about the autonomy of the university when politicians want to govern the field of research? What is the role of the departments, the faculties and the university in both supporting and protecting researcher and teachers that work within these fields of knowledge? What approaches can be developed inside and outside of universities to create networks of support and care in times of rising anti-gender sentiments?

My New Album: The Classical Performer as Star
When classical music was first recorded focus on the phonograms was the recorded work and the composer. Performers were mentioned but not highlighted. When record covers were becoming regular also the tradition of liner notes started. In these a short presentation of the performers were common, but focus was still on the work and the composer. During the decades focus has shifted in the direction of the performers, and the most extreme form of this is a growing number of albums where the soloist is presented as the star. My presentation gives an overview and some examples of this development.

The recycling of symbols in visual art by Chicanas/os: Transcending border barriers of cultural heritage
In visual art by Chicanas/os, strategically chosen symbols often relate the visual vocabulary to the history of the U.S.-Mexican border. In theorizing the U.S.-Mexico border, the concept borderlands is a central component, defined by Chicana/o scholars as a ‘third space’ from which to re-conceptualize history as a narration that transgress singular identifications. Drawing on border history, borderlands theory, and visual semiotics, a collection of disparate art works is examined in which the borderlands is a common denominator and a dialogue with the past is created through a recycling of polyvalent visual symbols that transcend border barriers of cultural heritage.

Loud, stinking and uncomfortable: 5 Multisensory provocations from recent research in art history and visual culture
In this session we explore multisensory aspects of art history and visual culture in recent research. As art historians, we have for example explored processes of meaning making in areas as diverse as live concerts, digital fashion magazines, dance in public spaces, and olfactory art, as well as visual representations of food waste. The purpose of this session is to open up a visual, multisensorial and kinesthetic space of critical potential. Together we explore how a multisensory perspective can help unravel and address often hidden yet powerful processes of meaning making in areas as diverse as body odour and dumpster diving.

Women and the coloniality of energopower and Swedish corporations in Hidroituango, Colombia
Hidroituango, the biggest infrastructure project ever in Colombia aims to produce clean energy for a sustainable development. It entangles Swedish brand corporations like Atlas Copco, Scania and ABB, and by so doing it embodies what scholars discuss as the coloniality of power. Women in grassroots movements like Rios Vivos have been performing decoloniality by claiming for the exhumation of over 600 bodies of settlers killed by paramilitaries; and for liberating the Cauca river from the Hidroituango project. The paper discuss how Rios Vivos activism is entangled with other webs of decolonial activism in the continent and beyond.

The Arnolfini Tale
The enigmatic painting “The Arnolfini Portrait”, nowadays in the National Gallery (London, UK), attributed to Jan van Eyck and dated to 1434 has bedazzled scholars and the general public since the mid 19th century. The canonic comprehension of the painting is mainly based on the much-debated article ”Jan van Eyck's Arnolfini Portrait” published in The Burlington Magazine for Connoisseurs in 1934 by Erwin Panofsky. However, this paper will reexamine and critically scrutinize the painting’s provenance, archival records, and especially the National Gallery’s acquisition procedure of the double portrait.

Five Collaborative Film Projects within GPS400
The paper briefly presents main activities, partners and material within five ongoing film projects within the collaborative research resource GPS400. GOTHENBURG CULTURES ON THE TOWN 1621–2021 (GPS400) is a digital and site-¬specific resource for research and education within the humanities that works at the intersection between digital innovation, scientific presence and various forms of archiving.

Sofia Coppola:The Politics of Visual Pleasure

“Dra na gambält över de”: modality in Swedish folk music
In the contemporary scene of folk music making, including in Western Europe and Scandinavia, there often comes up the idea that the oldest melodies in the repertoire are modal – based on ancient modes rather than major and minor keys. Since this idea has spread beyond folk music scholarship and has been fascinating musicians and teachers for a while, this project seeks to trace its origins and provide critical perspectives on its analytical and regulative implications.

Valeria Villegas Lindvall, doktorand i filmvetenskap
Bleeding slits: the horrific divides in Gigi Saul Guerrero’s work
This presentation will tackle the way in which I have structured and worked on my contribution to the forthcoming monograph Women Make Horror, edited by Dr. Alison Peirse (University of Leeds) to be published by Rutgers University Press in 2019. I will discuss the framework, material and theoretical underpinnings to the chapter, as well as its relation to my current research and the approach I take towards the representation of the female figure in Latin American horror film.

Birte Bruchmüller, doktorand i konst- och bildvetenskap
Nordic symbolist artists as‚ cosmopolites‘ at the turn of the 20th century
Although recent research contributions stress that the high number of Scandinavian artists who practiced their art on the continent didn’t decrease around 1900, Nordic art history still pays most attention to artworks which were created in a national context.
Furthermore, there has been less written about some younger Nordic artists whose artistic approach became transnational, universal, and ‘cosmopolitan’ after they left for Paris in the 1890s. By investigating a qualitative choice of Nordic painters who approached the symbolistic art scene, I want to pay attention to unexplored international dynamics in Nordic art history regarding stylistic, thematic, and art-theoretical concerns.
