Abstract [en]

Over the last hundred years a new ideal body norm has been established. We should be thin, or at least strive to be. Consequently, dieting has become a topical subject. This article aims to examine the history of Swedish dieting from the introduction of William Banting's diet into Sweden at the end of the nineteenth century to the present day. The article takes tries to answer the following questions: Why did people diet? Was it for aesthetic, social or health reasons? Or was it a physical expression of good morality in the form of self-discipline and control? The theoretical basis of this study is inspired by Michael Foucault's concept of biopower and the study method is a qualitative text analysis done by examining medical books and weekly newspapers. The findings show that a strong argument for dieting was the health risks which corpulence was deemed to be linked to. But there were moral, aesthetic and psychosocial reasons too. All these reasons appeared, to a lesser or greater extent, in both medical books and weeklies during the whole period. Aesthetic reasons, however, featured most prominently in weeklies, whereas medical books devoted most space to health reasons. When discussing the latter, physicians, often, however, strayed onto moral reasons. Highlighted as the psychosocial reason were the derision and insults corpulent people endured, which made their lives miserable because they could not participate in society in the same way as thin people. In this context, dieting was portrayed as little short of a miracle. If only an overweight person became thin, their life would change and they would be happy. There is such an abundance of these dieting stories in weeklies that they constitute their own genre.

Abstract [en]

This paper examined a form of 19th century globally spread physiotherapy known as Swedish medical gymnastics. The goal of the research was to determine the aim of medical gymnastics, its elements and its performance style. The study also investigated why medical gymnastics had such a large global impact? Applying a qualitative text analysis, the results showed that medical gymnastics, through individually tailored movements, aimed to restore health, which for various reasons had declined. Furthermore, the treatment made particular use of passive movements carried out by someone other than the patient. Even massage was included. However, there were also active movements, under the supervision of or supported by a gymnast. As for the global spread, two factors contributed to this: first, its scientific and philosophical foundations were typical of the period; and second, recent graduates of the Royal Central Gymnastics Institute in Stockholm went abroad to promote Ling gymnastics, the type of gymnastics to which medical gymnastics belonged. Medical gymnastics treatment became an important source of income for both the graduates and the Royal Central Gymnastics Institute. This led, ultimately, to many people coming into contact with this form of gymnastics. Yet another reason was its rootedness, both in the past and in the future, where physical exercise remains of major importance for maintaining or regaining health.

Abstract [en]

Introduction. In order to examine the consequences that a changed view of the child had on early twentieth-century teaching in Sweden, this article analyses a battle that erupted when a proposal for new lesson content for Swedish school gymnastics was presented.

Material and methods. The study method is a comparative qualitative analysis of texts which present the views of the supporters and opponents of the proposal. The data analysis is based on a model showing five different constructions of childhood: a moment of innocence and purity; a period of lacking, but with naturally unfolding potential for, rational power; the primitive stage of human evolution; a time for redemption: saving the child from his/her sinful nature; and a period of active growth.

Results. For the proposal's supporters, the fact that they mainly regarded childhood as a time of active growth meant a form of gymnastics more suited to children and their needs as well as a desire to get them to participate and become involved. For the proposal's opponents, the notion of childhood as the primitive stage of human evolution meant that considerable space was accorded to order movements, commands, and other military elements designed to subjugate and control in order to develop and civilise pupils in accordance with the values and ideals this side represented.

Conclusions. The findings show that the views of both sides concerning which gymnastics should be practised can be linked to different notions of the child.
