    American Stars 'n' bards, and Swedish Reviewers: The Swedish Field of Literary Criticism and the Local Symbolic Reproduction of Global U.S. Authors2008In: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 40, no 02-jan, p. 140-164Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article looks at the way U.S. authors were received by Swedish practical criticism in the period 1980-2005. After a quantitative overview of the U.S. authors and genres that were given attention in Swedish review media in this period, the article discusses discrepancies between the original U.S. and the Swedish recognition. One particularly interesting case is the very favorable reception of Paul Auster's work, which functioned as a confirmation of the postmodern breakthrough in the Swedish literary field. What the introduction of Auster shows is how Swedish critics function as intermediaries who represent what Pascale Casanova has identified as the ""national"" and the ""international"" poles of the literary field. Since Swedish criticism is in the peculiar position of representing a peripheral literary field that nevertheless controls a central consecrating instance, the Nobel Prize, it call be argued that the strategies of the most autonomous critics are always to some extent oriented in relation to the struggles between the world literary centers. The Swedish critic Aris Fioretos' introduction and intraduction of Paul Auster is, in that regard, a pertinent illustration of the cosmopolitan trajectory required for the fulfillment of the role of introduktor (""introducer""), a particularly significant function in afield that contains the Prize-awarding Academy.

    Citing the world: A geometric data analysis of Swedish literary scholars' use of foreign critical resources2016In: Poetics (Amsterdam. Print), ISSN 0304-422X, E-ISSN 1872-7514, Vol. 55, p. 60-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The academic study of literature constitutes one institutional site for the production and reproduction of conceptions of literature. In a semi-peripheral country such as Sweden, this production partly relies on foreign intellectual goods. To analyze this transnational dimension of Swedish scholarship in a period marked by increasing internationalization, a Geometric Data Analysis (GDA) (Le Roux & Rouanet, 2004) was carried out on the bibliographies of 318 PhD dissertations, defended in the period 1980-2005, at Swedish departments of literary studies (litteraturvetenskap). The analysis of citational choices showed only an insignificant increase in the reliance on foreign sources in this period. The GDA revealed how these privileged references were distributed in a tripolar opposition, reflecting fundamentally different conceptions of literature, interpreted in this study as the three poles of textual singularity, secular particularity and anthropological universality. The analysis of supplementary variables shows that these oppositions are subtended by different geolinguistic orientations and that they correlate strongly with gender, which is overwhelmingly in evidence as one moves from the male-dominated textual pole to the strongly feminist and female social pole of the first axis. The lack of increasing internationalization measured by citations is attributed to the national cultural mission of these departments.

    Dots on the Literary Map?: Literary Valorizations of Place, the Wealth of Earl Lovelace's Trinidad, and Geometric Data Analysis2018In: Ariel: A Review of International English Literature, ISSN 0004-1327, Vol. 49, no 2-3, p. 1-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article intervenes in scholarly debates about postcolonial space by demonstrating the distinctive strengths of Geometric Data Analysis (GDA) as an approach to literary space that skirts both close and distant reading modes. I use GDA to map the fictional space of Trinidadian author Earl Lovelace's short story A Brief Conversion, offering a more complete and systematic account than earlier readings. I argue that the theoretical stakes of this sort of analysis reside in the distinction between what I call the wealth of place and the value of place, terms inspired by Marxist value critique. Despite its best intentions, literary criticism tends to get caught up in the logic of valorization, putting into circulation place as a value, dissociated from the wealth of place that the literary work (in the best of cases) produces. From these theoretical starting points, I assert that geometric methods can stay truer to the wealth of place by disclosing the space of possibles created by the literary text, thus restoring to the storyworld a sense of its dynamic and open orientations.

    Worldly vernaculars in the Anglophone Caribbean2018In: World Literatures: Exploring the Cosmopolitan-Vernacular Exchange / [ed] Stefan Helgesson, Annika Mörte Alling, Yvonne Lindqvist, Stockholm: Stockholm University Press, 2018, p. 150-161Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Returning to the canonical opposition between Derek Walcott and Kamau Brathwaite as an illustration, this essay argues that the rendering of place is an indispensable category for studying the tensions between cosmopolitan and vernacular orientations, as instanced in the work of these poets. More particularly, different strategies are associated with distinct forms of claiming place, and vice versa. Both Walcott and Brathwaite can be seen as affirming the local – “the smaller place” – at the expense of the “larger world”, but they do so by means of their access to the distant places their poems register. The essay ends up holding up a full matrix engendering a rich set of possibilities: the smaller place may be claimed with cosmopolitan means or in the vernacular; the larger world may be invested with cosmopolitan expressivity or with vernacular forms.
