Full Article:

This paper contests the prevailing narrow conceptions of Swedish modernity and received notions of the homogenous and stereotypical image of Swedish Modernism and posits an inflected historicist-traditionalist form of Swedish Modern. By revealing alternative histories, my study provides a new perspective on Swedish ‘welfare nationalism’. Using primary sources, my investigative strategy is also underpinned by a broad multi-disciplinary range of recent Scandinavian research on nationalism, nation-building and nation-formation.
