Dr. Mikael Alm, 2017

Uppsala University (Sweden)

Senior Lecturer in history, Programme Director of the master programme Early Modern Studies, Research Director of the node Early Modern Cultural History. Liaison Officer for the Matariki Humanities Network. Researching on political and social culture during the age of revolutions. Presently working on the project "Making a Difference: Sartorial Practices and Social Order in Early Modern Europe".
In his research, Mikael Alm has focused on questions of power, hierarchies, and the ways in which social and political relationships are expressed, shaped and legitimised. The main focal point has been on the political and social culture of late 18th and early 19th century. He is currently working with a project on sartorial practices for social differentiation in eighteenth century Sweden. Throughout his work runs an interest in empirical sources, schools of theory and methodologial solutions. The theoretical interest has primarily been focused on the field of cultural history and analytical concepts such as culture, languages and discourse. Methodologically, Alm has, alongside traditionally historical text-sources, worked extensively with non-written sources (such as medals, monuments, dress, ceremonies et cetera) through iconographic, ritual and spatial analysis.

During his time at the University of Oldenburg, Dr. Alm co-organised a workshop on Early Modern History for junior scholars from the Universities of Uppsala and Oldenburg.

Workshop "Owning: A most Human Passion": Owning has always been looked at with great suspicion by philosophy and religion alike, tolerated as a necessary concession to be made to human finite-ness rather than a constitutive feature of the humana natura. Objects in turn were seen as the very opposite of the human. Plato was the first to criticize the seemingly intrinsical greed embedded within the phenomenon of possessing objects. His critique resonated through centuries until the modern age, but with and after the Renaissance the rise of merchant bourgeoisie and the spreading of the phenomenon of collecting showed that the issue of owning could not be addressed only in terms of suspicion towards the sacra auri fames, as it was in Thomas Aquinas and William of Ockham. In time, and especially with the explosion of mass consumerism in the second half of the 20th century, owning started to pose another sort of danger, that of de-humanization (man becomes an object, a thing), as in Heidegger. But are objects condemned to perpetual inhumanity, and is such pseudo-humanistic paradigm really impossible to overcome? The workshop will address these issues:

a) The ethical issue: are ethical condemnations of, or suspicions about, owning fully or partially justifiable?

b) The ontological issue: is the ontological issue sensible?, i.e. does owning actually affect in a negative way the humanity of the human? What about the relation between owning objects and the satisfaction of human desire?

c) The historical issue: Owning as one of the engines of history and its power of pushing change through the power of desire.
