Culture Shock! Sweden > Customer Review #1: good information, but..........

the information gained by reading this book is very good, and should be useful for anyone living in or visiting Sweden for a long time. It will be somewhat useful for my proposed short trip this summer, particularly since my partner will be involved in academic issues and a conference during our trip. I suspect there is a better book to prepare for a short visit, but I havent found it yet. Some parts of the Swedish character as portrayed ring *very true*, especially the idea that they have the best way figured out. Ive seen that my whole life with my relatives who are first generation American from Sweden, and it even persists into the second generation. (but maybe thats me too! :-) ) The writing style strikes me as being written for a simpleton. I cant figure out why, since the vocabulary is not excessively limited. The reading level may be lower than that to which I am accustomed, but Im not even sure if thats it. Maybe the author is out of practice with English, and she is from Britain, making the style seem stilted to my US ear? I read a lot, so that doesnt seem possible either....

Swedish emigration to America is rather typical for European emigration westward to America during the 19th century. Therefore, we have elected to present the background of the Swedish emigration at that time. Painting "The Emigrants" by Swedish artist Knut Ekwall, (1843-1912). This painting depicts the artist's vision of what the Atlantic crossings could be like for the immigrants. Courtesy by Lena Björk Kaplan, President of the American Scandinavian Foundation in New York, owner of this beautiful work.
A Review of Swedish Emigration to America The history of Swedish emigration to America goes further back in time than that of the United States. Swedes started to come in 1638, just eighteen years after the landing of the "MAYFLOWER." The tidal wave of Swedish emigration began in the mid 1840s, when the first organized emigrant groups started to arrive in New York. These farmers destined to Iowa and Illinois were followed during the period up to 1930 by almost 1.3 million countrymen. The Swedes still rank number seven among the European immigrant groups. In proportion to the population of their home countries, only the British Isles and Norway surpassed Sweden in the number of immigrants. The effect of this exodus from Sweden reached its climax around 1910, when 1.4 million Swedish first and second generation immigrants were listed as living in the U.S. Compare this to Sweden's population at the time: 5.5 million. Roughly one fifth of all Swedes had their homes in America right before World War I !

Sweden's Culture I t is undoubtedly through the export of its culture that Sweden has had its greatest impact upon the world. From the strong, clean design sensibility of its Functionalist movement to the immaculate cinematic masterpieces of Ingmar Bergman, the unique cultural outlook of Sweden has gained an international currency that far exceeds what one might expect from this modestly-sized nation. One source of this unusual cultural strength, paradoxically enough, has been Sweden's historic position at the margins of Europe. Relatively isolated from the main currents of continental European cultural change, many of Sweden's artistic traditions developed their own rich and distinctive character. Drawing inspiration from folk culture, as well as from the stunning beauty of the land itself, these traditions have maintained a vitality and a bold simplicity that are now appreciated all over the world. Swedish design and architecture are best known through their contribution to the functionalist movement, which in the 1930s introduced the world to the clean, sophisticated designs that we now associate as much with modernism itself as with Scandinavia and Sweden in particular. Among the notable figures in this movement was the architect Erik Gunnar Asplund. In literature, Sweden is best known for the groundbreaking works of August Strindberg, one of the original badboys of modernism. Among Sweden's many other internationally-known writers are Selma Lagerlöf, Vilhelm Moberg, Pär Lagerkvist and Astrid Lindgren, the last of whom is better known through the name of her most famous character, Pippi Longstocking.

Katalin welcomes you. Copenhagen . I have also chosen a lovely building of the many there are in this city. It is Rundetaarn (The Round Tower), built in 1642 by the king Christian IV, the last Danish king reigning over Scania - Scandinavia in Latin). It is a rather high tower (34,8 m), nice to look at, but even to visit. It is open around the year, giving place to concerts, exhibitions and even contains an observatiorium. It will take you 30 minutes to the third biggest town in Sweden. The bridge was by the way opened on the 1 July 2000! Scania is a nice place to live in. I have been living there for almost 30 years now. I was born in Hungary, where I lived until 1972, when I moved to Sweden. I have been living in Sweden in a little town called Lund ever since. I am in contact with Hungarians through the Hungarian association that has been around since 1947 in Lund and even through my main interest: research. Lund used to be the capital of Denmark a thousand years ago....It is a rather old and very picturesque city By the way, the final battle was just outside Lund, in 1676, and in that Scania was finally lost and became inavitably Swedish. In order to Swedenize the inhabitants of Scania as soon as possible, the king of all Swedes, Karl XI gave order that a university should be built in Lund. (Knowledge is power, as we know it.) His order was hastily carried out, so as a result, now we have a big

      Christ to Bishop Hemming, in St Birgitta, Revelationes I.52
    Bishop Hemming and St Birgitta, Urdiala, Finland
D uring many of her Revelations, St Birgitta of Sweden (1303-1373) heard Christ and the Virgin reveal the will of God, which she was to pass on to secular and clerical rulers, as well as to common people. These messages often fiercely urged their recipients to repent so that their souls would be saved from divine anger, and God's peace could rule the world. The spiritual messages were intertwined with visions for the practical reform of the church and secular kingdoms, which in Birgitta's day were troubled by wars, the Papacy's dislocation in Avignon (1309-1377) and epidemic of the plague later known as the Black Death (1347-1351). Bishop Hemming and Prior Peter made their journey between 1346 and 1349. Their mission was to deliver to the Pope Birgitta's Revelation which lamented the decline of the Papacy. This Brigittine Revelation urged the Pope to reform his own lasciviousness, to cease supporting the King of France, and to return the Papal See to Rome. In Birgitta's Revelation Christ spoke directly to Clement:
    It will not remain a secret how at your time greed and ambition flourished in the Church, and how many things you could have reformed and improved, but you, lover of the flesh, balked.

Symbolic power struggles in inter-cultural space
Thomas Hylland Eriksen
Lecture delivered at the symposium "Culture in the Global Village", Lund, Sweden, 14-16 January, 1993. Published in Swedish in Oscar Hemer, ed., Kulturen i den globala byn
The problem

Culture is that which makes communication and misunderstanding possible, and it is also the continuously generated result of ongoing processes of communication. It is not a fixed entity, nor can it be delimited to a community of individuals. To myself, there is no doubt that I share more in terms of culture with some of my informants from anthropological fieldwork in Mauritius and Trinidad than with my next-door neighbours in Oslo. In general, as interacting human beings we are closer than ships passing in the night, but tightly knit communities with shared values and ideas are rarer than many social scientists have been wont to think.
Mauritius Patrick Patrick and his brothers frequently rent video films; many of them are low-budget Hong Kong kung-fu films; others are American films dubbed in French. He says that the criterion for a good film is its ability to stir the sentiments of the audience, and both violent and romantic films are in his view capable of that.
