WARNING: Fake version of Scandia! Ny

It was recently brought to our attention that a fake version of our journal has been created. Call for papers have been sent out to a number of e-mailaddresses claiming to accept contributions in "the fields of history, education, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, Law, physical sciences, earth sciences, life sciences, agricultural sciences, and medical sciences and other applied sciences and technology including all branches of engineering". The fake journal has a website imitating ours but with a different domain name.

The editorial board of Scandia therefore wishes to make clear that

1) this ( is the only legitimate website.

2) Scandia only accepts contributions in the field of history.

3) Scandia never charges any fees for the publication of articles.

Peter K. Andersson: “I am a real human being” Characters and Deviants in Town and Country in Late Nineteenth Century Southern Sweden

In the folklore records collected by the folklore archive in Lund in the first half of the twentieth century, we find hundreds of stories about “characters” (frequently referred to as original in Swedish). What is a character? Anyone who has grown up in a Swedish village or small town in the last century is probably familiar with the term. However, the definition becomes less clear the more we try to narrow it down, based on the fact that a review of the material indicates that the term could be used quite widely at the beginning of the twentieth century and that stories about characters include accounts of most people who were seen as deviants or outsiders. Some statements appear to have a very wide notion of what constitutes a character.
