In this dissertation it is argued that anti-Semitism was self evident in Sweden at the turn of the century 1900. Through an analysis of the comic press, which was a crucial element in mass culture and political life, the author tries to demonstrate how the everyday version of a national Swedish identity was constructed in opposition to ‘The Jew’. In the decades either side of 1900, anti-Semitism had very little to do with the Swedish Jews and their doings. It was instead a question of the needs created by the process of modernisation and of how the established anti-Semitic discourse identified the ‘Jew’ as the villain of this particular piece. The comics not only provide insights into the complex processes by which national identities were formed, but also largely contributed to their creation. The comics were crucial in staking out the boundaries around ‘Swedishness’. In comics, film and literature the penetration of the anti-Semitic discourse becomes most obvious. ‘The Jew’ is represented as the antithesis of ‘The Swede’.
