    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; cultural policy; Sweden; nation-state; imagined communities; neo-institutionalism; path dependency; separation of church and state; universal values; particular values; ethnic nations; state-framed nations; kulturpolitik; Sverige; nationalstat; föreställd gemenskap; nyinstitutionalism; stigberoende; kyrka-stat-frågan; universella värden; partikulära värden; etnisk nationsuppfattning; statsinramad nationsuppfattning; Cultural heritage and cultural production; Kulturarv och kulturproduktion;

    Abstract : By comparative analysis of Swedish cultural policy (including art policy, heritage policy and Church policy) during the Riksdag periods of 1970-73, 1991-94, 1994-98 and 1998-2002 the relationship between cultural policy and the concept of the nation as a homogenous cultural community (defined by either an ethnic or a state-framed concept) is explored. Neoinstitutional analysis of cultural policy as an organisational field is combined with analysis of how the nation is conceived as an imagined community, and what values it strives to uphold to show how these values and concepts are institutionalised in its cultural policy and how this supports the legitimacy of the State as a nation-state.
