Abstract [en]

So far, studies of Swedish 20th-century social policy have emphasized the differences between the voluntary aid common around 1900 and the solidarity of welfare policy at mid-century. Means tests have been described as central instruments in the voluntary social work, while the welfare state was built on general principles of care. The question is, however, if the differences between the earlier and later forms of social policy can be characterized in such simple terms. A comparison has been made of departure points found in the social policies of the two periods. The results confirm that a significantly new way of thinking had taken shape in the years around the Second World War, but the study also shows that that the ideas concerning the welfare state contain threads that can be traced back to the scientific philanthropy of a few years earlier. The idea of social engineering was nothing new, and the idea that rights could be exchanged for duties had still not been deserted in the 1940s. In conclusion it can be said that the welfare state and the welfare politics of solidarity in several respects were built upon the principles of care that were formulated in about 1900.

Abstract [en]

This paper seeks to explore the definitions of the concept of intersectionality, its use and the ways in which it has been adapted in the field of disability studies. Furthermore, it discusses the dimensions that the use of this concept may add to an analysis of the material in our study of the treatment of children and youths suffering from non-pulmonary tuberculous.

Abstract [sv]

Vad vilar i det dolda, vad göms i arkivens vrår? Genom tryckfrihetsförordningen 1766 fick medborgare och historiker tillgång till allmänna handlingar och de senaste hundra åren har offentligt källmaterial använts i nästan alla avhandlingar. Det är tillgängligt, bekvämt och självklart. Sällan ställs kritiska frågor om vad det innebär. Till synes oändliga rader av dokument lockar forskarna att vandra i administrationens fotspår, att undersöka vissa teman. Samtidigt skapar sekretess, privatiseringar och myndigheters gallringar stora tomrum och håligheter. Vad hamnar egentligen i arkiven? Uppsatserna i denna bok behandlar riksdagsprotokollen som trycksak och medium, begreppshistoriska och biografiska frågeställningar, manligt och kvinnligt, historiografi och kommunarkivens rikedom. Tillsammans visar de hur nya perspektiv kan locka fram oväntade svar från bekanta källserier, men också att miljontals gulnade trycksidor och snörbundna dossiersamlingar fortfarande ligger där  orörda.
