    Francophonie littéraire et échanges intersystémiques avec le système littéraire non francophone: un double transfert de capital symbolique2019In: Expressions maghrébines, ISSN 1540-0085, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 129-156Article in journal (Refereed)

    Literary French speaking world and intersystematic exchanges with non French speaking world: a double transfer of symbolic capital

    This article examines the literary exchange existing between Algeria and Sweden through a study of the journalistic reception of Francophone Algerian literature in the Swedish press between 1990 and 2015. The discourse of the press is analyzed using Sapiro’s model (2010). The results show that Sweden views Francophone Algerian literature as modern and endowed with a rich and ancient heritage. Contrary to Casanova’s model of literary exchange (2002), this literature does not systematically appear as peripheral. The author therefore emphasizes the importance of studying French language literature from the margins of the non-Francophone literary system in order to contribute to the renewal of Francophone studies.

    La promotion d’un Nord francophile et moderne dans la France de l’entre-deux guerres – Le cas de Marika Stiernstedt (1875–1954)2022In: Nordic Journal of Francophone Studies/Revue nordique des études francophones, E-ISSN 2003-0401, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 137-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish writer Marika Stiernstedt (1875–1954) is remembered in Swedish literaryhistoriography and French Scandinavian studies, yet her literary works in French havenever been studied. However, not only did Stiernstedt establish herself as a writerin France, but she also made a name for herself as a journalist in the French pressbetween the two World Wars. From a sociological perspective on literature andtranslations, this contribution offers us a commentary on Stiernstedt’s publications inFrench. In light of the unpublished correspondence between Marika Stiernstedt, LucienMaury and Stiernstedts editor Albin Michel, this study examines the positioning of thisSwedish author in France. The results of this research underline on the one hand therole of ambassador and mediator that Stiernstedt played between Sweden and Franceduring the interwar period, and leads on the other hand to reflect on the imaginedNorth of this translingual writer. For Stiernstedt, promoting a modern, FrancophileNorth, became a crucial issue during a time when Sweden was still percieved underthe mists of the North.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter examines the literary transfer of the Francophone Algerian writer,Leïla Sebbar, in the Swedish media. Drawing on the methodological frameworkof Bourdieu (2002) as well as Broomans and Jiresch (2011), this study analyzesthe reception of Sebbar in the Swedish press and radio and also reflects moregenerally on the transnational transfer of Francophone North African Literature.This case study reveals many ambivalences and indicates the (enduring) difficulty of placing postcolonial Francophone literatures on an equal footing with theFranco-Parisian center in the international circulation of texts.

    Le Québec, « un pays fermé et difficile d’accès » ?: L’exportation des écrivains classiques de la littérature québécoise ou les avatars du circuit de la circulation transnationale2018In: Revue nordique des études francophones, ISSN 2003-0401, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 18-35Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study on transnational reception, with a focus on writers from the Québécois classic literature between 1980 and 2015, the author explores three vectors of transmission in particular: translation, dissemination in libraries, and journalistic reception, in order to investigate the case of Québec and the unique features in the transmission of Francophone literary to Sweden. The paper takes its point of departure in a corpus of 28 classic writers from Québec. The contribution is inscribed in sociological literary studies and makes use of Espagne’s way of thinking with regards to cultural transfers, Mani’s studies on bibliographic migration, and Viala’s notion of canon and classics. The outcome of this research partly consists of a validation of the concept “triple alliance”, developed by Viala. The results present an ongoing extinction of classic writers from the Québécois literature within the Swedish literary landscape and challenge the notion of a classic work. In fact, if translations are sparse and almost inexistent, and the mediated part in libraries only reach a limited readership, the representations disseminated by the Swedish press between 1980 and 2015 further underscore the aspect of exclusiveness, alterity, and inaccessibility of the Québécois literature. However, the reception study shows the importance of a new Québécois literature: the migrant literature. At the end of the paper, the author suggests the hypothesis that classic writers from Francophone literatures run the risk to be more rapidly forgotten than contemporary authors from this same literature. The study also tends to confirm, in line with Melançon (2004) and Chartier (2000), the difficulty to define a list of classic Québécois.

    Les pratiques éditoriales en traduction: Étude comparée de trois appareils péritextuels de Petit pays de Gaël Faye2021In: Nordic Journal of Francophone Studies/Revue nordique des études francophones, E-ISSN 2003-0401, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 70-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines editorial practices through a comparative analysis of three translations (Danish, Dutch and Swedish) of an international bestseller. Drawing on the theory of cultural transfers and the sociology of translation, the study considers the strategies and functions of editorial packaging in the case of a bestseller. The main editorial procedures are described using the concepts of « resemantization » (Espagne) and « isomorphism » (Franssen & Kuipers). Although the three peritexts all possess distinctive traits which set them apart in themselves, it is also shown how the three publishers use very different writing practices to position the writer locally and internationally. The paper ends by suggesting that the concept of « glocalization » (Damrosh) allows us to describe the resemantization processes at work in the three editorial peritexts.

    La langue française et les écrivaines suédoises: Langue, réception, imaginaire2022Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    En consacrant ce volume aux femmes écrivaines suédoises et à la langue française, nous sommes partis en exploration pour revisiter l’histoire culturelle et littéraire suédoise sous le prisme de la langue et de la culture française. Pour réaliser ce projet, nous avons élargi la perspective des transferts culturels à celle des écrivaines suédoises tout en limitant principalement – mais non exclusivement - notre corpus aux auteures d’expression française. Les études rassemblées dans ce volume ont permis de soulever le défí posé par le manque de visibilité et de reconnaissance littéraire des auteures femmes suédoises d’expression française.

    Les travaux présentés dans ce volume permettent ainsi d’accroître la visibilité de ces écrivaines suédoises en offrant des analyses de texte à partir de la langue, des représentations et de la réception. Neuf écrivaines ont été mises à l’honneur : Harriet Löwenhjelm, la princesse Eugénie de Suède, Marie-Louise Karadja, Jane Gernandt-Claine, la reine Christine, Greta Knutson, Marika Stiernstedt, Émily Tanimura et Bodil Malmsten.

    Abstract [fr]

    Ce livre porte sur les relations culturelles entre la France et la Suède de 1945 à nos jours. Il réunit les articles présentés à l’occasion de la conférence internationale, « Frankrike-Sverige – Tur och retur », qui a eu lieu à Stockholm en janvier 2014, organisée par l’Université Paris-Sorbonne et l’Université de Stockholm. Ces vingt-deux articles tracent ensemble une histoire croisée des médiations matérielles et immatérielles, dynamiques et complexes, ayant permis la construction des identités culturelles dans trois domaines principaux : les représentations et l’imaginaire ; la médiation et les vecteurs de transmission ; la traduction, la réception et la circulation des oeuvres.

    Sweden, a literary model in the process of autonomy? The import issues of French language literature in Sweden in XXI century

    This study offers an in-depth analysis of the reception in the Swedish daily press (2010–2014) of three Francophone authors: Crowther, Taïa, and Thúy. Through a new approach combining concepts like consecrational transfers (Casanova), cultural transfer (Espagne), and ideologic functions (Moura), the analysis reveals Sweden’s efforts to become a consecrating pole. Firstly, while stressing the “difference” as a principal feature of the commented literature, Sweden tries to foreground its own national project to jointly promote diversity, migrancy and cohesion. Secondly, comparing the Francophone literature with its own, Swedish critics manage to consecrate literature from another dominated country. Finally, comparisons with more international references leave space for self-consecration and access to a more dominant position on the market. Thus, the transmitted literature is less at stake than the receiving country’s own image.

    L’importation de la littérature française: un triple détournement de capital: Réflexions à partir d’une étude de réception journalistique en Suède2016In: Moderna Språk, E-ISSN 2000-3560, Vol. 110, p. 108-131Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The background material of the study consists of articles about French literature gathered between 2010 and 2014 in the Swedish press. The aim of the article is to isolate the most widely discussed French literature from France in the Swedish press during the period, in order to explore why the transfer of this literature persists over time, how it is perceived, and which type of mediators bring about this transmission. The study raises questions about the image of French literature in Swedish media, Sweden’s impact on the transnational circulation of literature, and the use of French literature to place Sweden on the literary map.

    The results of the reception study show that French literature is presented as both aesthetically disruptive with innovative features and as a normative and traditional model. It incarnates an image of tradition as well as of modernity. French literature from France is principally mediated by orthodox journalists with a consistent symbolic capital, and the posture of these journalists is analyzed through Sapiro’s model, inspired by Bourdieu. The orthodox journalists manage to redirect the symbolic capital inherent to consecrated French literature at three levels: national, personal, and transnational. Firstly, the importation of French literature increases Swedish literature’s symbolic capital. Secondly, this transfer allows for an auto-consecration of the orthodox journalists themselves. Thirdly, this use of highly valued imported literature engenders a supplementary consecration (surconsecration) of a national literature and its dominating language. In conclusion, these observed bilateral literary exchanges show the often overlooked importance of peripheral countries in transnational literary transmission. The results modify Casanova’s (2002) model, since they display the impact on the market from the margins. The transfer of central national literatures in dominating languages towards peripheral countries allows for dominated languages and minor national literatures to take an active part in the construction and reconstruction of the relations on the global literary map.

    Appropriately Provocative Texts in the Classroom: An Act of Violation or a Tool for Democracy?2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Reading any kind of literature evokes emotions, introduces new experiences and

    benefits the understanding of a person’s individual reaction. However, if the purpose

    for the reading is to locate facts, such as identifying a theme, the reading

    experience could result in discouraging reading. The Swedish curriculum for

    uppersecondary school tends to focus on identifying traits of texts, instead of

    offering the students to

    emotionally connect with the text through previous personal experiences and

    interpretations, which would be beneficial for developing critical thinking. This

    challenges the notion that reading any kind of literature is an all-positive

    experience.

    Using Rosenblatt’s reader response-theory, I analyse the myth of literature as

    morally beneficial, which refers to the assumption that the readers of a literary work

    of art automatically gains moral values through the reading of literature. By

    investigating how different literary works could be used, perceived and categorized

    based on their appropriateness for classroom readings, this essay examines how the

    criteria of appropriateness can be problematic. Further, this essay assesses how

    provocative texts could be used for teaching democratic values. The analysis uses The

    Handmaid’s Tale, The Camp of the Saints and The Turner Diaries as literary

    examples in order to compare texts that have, and have not been challenged, critiqued

    and banned in high schools for different purposes, such as racism, feminism and for

    being anti-Christian.

    We Call upon the Author: Contemporary Biofiction and Fyodor Dostoevsky2021Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis studies fictional representations of Fyodor Dostoevsky in contemporary biofiction. The aim of the study is to present an intermedial theoretical framework for biofiction, a genre defined as fictional biographical and often metafictional narratives in which a biographical subject serves as the focal point for the story or plays a role integral to the narrative. Drawing on contributions from prior studies within different areas—biopics, the biographical novel, intermediality, transmedial narratology—the thesis identifies the most salient tenets of an increasingly important and ubiquitous genre—its fictional, intermedial, and metafictional properties—to suggest a medium-spanning definition. From this intermedial definition of the genre, it is suggested that biofiction studies should move beyond medium-specific analysis. By situating the genre firmly within the realm of fiction, the thesis underlines the fact that it is exactly the fictional element that allows the genre to open up important ways to engage with a certain biographical subject. Overall, the biofiction definition presented in the thesis is inspired by Jacques Derrida’s différance.

    Arguing that contemporary biofiction arose from the larger aporetic shift in theory and fiction in the 1960s, which was directed toward various presuppositions undergirding epistemological, metaphysical, and ontological projects, it is contended that biofiction fictionalizes subjects to engage with and reassess the assumptions that suffuse our understanding of the subject. From their metafictional perspective, biofictions also employ subjects for various purposes to interrogate contemporary issues. Biofictions are thus turned toward both a historical moment and its own contemporary context. Buttressed by the intermedial perspective, it is argued that biofictions often employ sustained intermedial strategies—for instance, intermedial references and formal imitation—to engage not only with artistic subjects such as Dostoevsky and their work but also with the premises of creating art.

    The thesis centers on five Dostoevsky biofictions within film and literature: Aleksandr Zarkhi’s biopic Twenty-Six Days from the Life of Dostoevsky (1980), Leonid Tsypkin’s novel Summer in Baden-Baden (1982), J. M. Coetzee’s novel The Master of Petersburg (1994), Lara Vapnyar’s novel Memoirs of a Muse (2006), and Vladimir Khotinenko’s television series Dostoevsky (2010). As contemporary biofictions, these fictional representations of Dostoevsky were all produced or written in the wake of the aforementioned aporetic shift and therefore comprise examples of the reflexive and metacritical form of biofiction that is discussed in the thesis. The inclusion of Dostoevsky biofictions is, in part, connected with the various critical perceptions of the writer; it is maintained that biofictions such as those analyzed in the thesis proffer new readings of issues that have been overlooked or have not received due attention, such as how Dostoevsky engaged with and augmented the rivalry polemics of his day; the ways in which his conceptualization of Russian identity rested as much on inclusion as exclusion; how Dostoevsky has been employed to propagate certain models of the muse, the genius, and canonicity; and how, in today’s Russia, the writer is employed to embody and express the hyperreal politics of Vladimir Putin’s administration.

    Abstract [en]

    This volume discusses medieval volgarizzamenti of historical, religious, and profane writings. All fourteen studies presented here recognise the fact that in the late Middle Ages, these texts were an important meeting point for elitist and popular culture which mutually stimulated each other. At the same time, different worlds of knowledge came together as history, mythology, hagiography, and biblical narration were considered to form one entity.

    ‘A poet, however, whom we fear that few Swedes know about’: Hellen Lindgren’s 1892 Essay on Percy Bysshe Shelley2022In: Nordic Romanticism: Translation, Transmission, Transformation / [ed] Cian Duffy, Robert W. Rix, Palgrave Macmillan , 2022, p. 263-292Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Carl-Ludwig Conning explores a previously undocumented aspect of the Swedish reception of Percy Shelley. In 1892, the literary critic Hellen Lindgren published the first major Swedish analysis of Shelley along with Fröding’s translation of Shelley’s ‘Hymn to Intellectual Beauty’. Conning’s chapter investigates the cultural-historical context for Lindgren’s introduction of Shelley to Swedish readers and reads Lindgren’s account of Shelley alongside the literary manifestos of the Swedish writers Fröding and von Heidenstam. Conning shows how Lindgren found in Shelley a particularly compelling integration of idealism and materialism, thereby offering a potential resolution to a dichotomy which was much debated in Swedish literature at the time as part of an ongoing transition from national Romanticism toward Naturalism. Conning also provides a full English translation of Lindgren’s essay.

    Towards an “Aesthetics of Weather”: Gustaf Fröding and Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “Hymn to Intellectual Beauty”2023In: European Romantic Review, ISSN 1050-9585, E-ISSN 1740-4657, Vol. 34, no 6, p. 732-751Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In spring 1892 the Stockholm literary magazine Ord och bild commissioned Swedish poet Gustaf Fröding (1860–1911) with a translation of Shelley’s “Hymn to Intellectual Beauty” (1816). At the time, Fröding was an accomplished poet and an experienced translator of Romantic poetry from English, German, and French. However, Fröding lamented in a letter to his editor that in “Hymn” he had encountered an unexpected problem with rendering Shelley’s poetry of meteorological form into Swedish. This is peculiar as Fröding’s own poetic compositions, original and translations alike, are deeply preoccupied with meteorology. Taking its outset in Fröding’s struggle with the translation, this essay investigates weather in “Hymn,” arguing that what had puzzled Fröding was a mode of meteorological representation idiosyncratic to Shelley. The essay suggests that it is precisely through these idiosyncratic meteorological representations that Shelley develops discourses of French materialist and British skeptical and empirical philosophy. This development culminates in an “aesthetics of weather,” expressive of Shelley’s radical conceptions of the social and physical world. The essay concludes that Fröding’s pronounced struggle and the variation in semantic content of his version of the poem reveal what is really the meteorologically precise poetic form of an aesthetics of weather in “Hymn.”

Many arguments have been proposed to explain how the Harry Potter-series has a gender-biased attitude. Although previous research has covered a wide variety of claims, this essay will focus on examining the language and word choices made to describe the male and female characters of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The word choices consist of both traditionally masculine adjectives and verbs as well as adjectives and verbs with negative connotations. To obtain a comprehensive view of the gender-biased tone of the two novels, the essay will not only examine the language, but also investigate if there is a gender-biased way of portraying the characters based on how their behaviour is described. These observations will be combined with previous research which includes Sara Mills’ investigation of sexist language and indirect sexism, Heilman and Donaldson’s critical perspective on the Harry Potter-novels, and Turner-Bowker’s study of stereotyping in young readers’ literature. These studies support my arguments and show that that there is a gender-bias in the way the characters are described, both through language and in the way that the character’s act in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

    “I don’t approve of you dating in your condition”: Constraint and Confusion in Jason Reitman's Juno and Non Pratt's Trouble2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the popular indie-film Juno came out in 2007, it has received massive attention including both praise and harsh critique. Some have celebrated the protagonist Juno’s strong personality and her initial sexual liberty, but the majority have questioned what they see as the film’s anti-abortion message. In contrast, the more recent work Trouble, a young adult (YA) fiction novel from 2014 by Non Pratt, has received very little attention from scholars despite treating the same sensitive subject of teenage pregnancy. Therefore, this essay involves a comparative analysis of the two texts, which examines how the protagonists experience their pregnancies by looking at aspects such as the pregnant body, sexuality, maturation, identity and existential questions. The essay also takes into consideration some of the critique that previously has been voiced regarding the messages that Juno and other YA fiction send. The aim is to contribute to the same discussion by analyzing the film from a slightly different angle and by introducing an analysis of Trouble. In accordance with previous research, the essay concludes that these two works reveal traditional values and perspectives on teenage pregnancy that limit the protagonists’ sexual agency and leave them feeling isolated and confused.

    Narrare l'Albania in italiano: Dalla letteratura di immigrazione verso il colonialismo dell'immaginazione2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to show how the contemporary critical debate on migrant literature in Italy has proved to be inadequate to grasp the complexity of novels such Onela Vorpsi’s The Land where No One Ever Dies and Anilda Ibrahimi’s Rosso come una sposa (“Red as a Bride”). The main critical trends are presented, the two novels are analysed in their themes and new methods of analysis are suggested. In particular, I open for the possibility of framing these two novels within the multidisciplinary debate on the imaginative colonisation of Eastern Europe.

    The Journey of ʾIbn ʿĀbid al-Fāsī (d. 1048/1638): A Study of Ṣūfī Elements, Riḥla Legacy, and Narrative2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of literary case study of a classical Arabic travel narrative dictated by the Moroccan scholar and Ṣūfī Yūsuf ʾibn ʿĀbid al-Fāsī (يوسف بن عابد الفاسي) (d.1048/1638) in his new-found home in Hadramawt, Yemen. The study seeks to investigate the Ṣūfī dimension of the corpus text and address its legacy within the riḥla tradition (AR. الرحلة al-riḥla) by the usage of Ṣūfī elements, generic riḥla codes, and devices pertaining to narrative. The results that emerged from this three-folded theoretical approach seems to support the posed hypothesis regarding the peregrinative reminiscence of ʾIbn ʿĀbid being an early – if not one of the earliest admitted to at least this day – forerunner to the mystical branch of riḥla that would later flower in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and which the writings of the acclaimed Damascene scholar and Ṣūfī Shaykh ʿAbd al-Ġanī al-Nābulusī (عبد الغني النابلسي) (d. 1143/1731) are widely told to exemplify. Yet, the study also challenges the categorization of the riḥla genre, given the liberate and open nature of its format – resulting in a liable conventional standard, against which every riḥla ought to be measured, being almost impossible to produce. As an alternative, the study suggests that one rather should speak of developments or currents within the large body of literature called riḥla.

    Streetwise and Inhuman: Hysterical Characterization in Zadie Smith’s White Teeth2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Literary critic James Wood coined the term “hysterical realism” in a famous review essay that criticized numerous contemporary novels of the late 1990s from writers such as David Foster Wallace, Don DeLillo and Salman Rushdie. White Teeth, Zadie Smith’s debut, was the latest of such novels, adhering to a particular style of writing where overwhelming information and a “permanent storytelling” ruled. Wood claimed that this kind of writing’s focus on the “pursuit of vitality at all costs” made these novels incapable of creating human characters or anything really “affecting, sublime or beautiful”.This essay is a reading of White Teeth as well as Wood’s various essaysregarding characterization to examine what he means by his claim and whether this holds true. Novels are heavily reliant on their characters, and this is also the case for White Teeth. However, its character development is stunted by its heavy use of information and intense character pairings to create the hysterical effect Wood refers to. This effect is humorous and clever in its way of involving the characters with each other, but its excessive nature becomes overwhelming when it is used recklessly over and over, ruining the hunger needed for such storytelling in the process. The resulting plot seems to be endless and inevitably shows signs of paranoia. Despite the hysterical nature of White Teeth there are certain moments as well as minor characters that show us that this kind of writing can allow itself to create something deep and brilliant.Keywords:

    Eat to remember. Gastronomical reconfigurations of hunger and imprisonment in contemporary Chinese literature2021In: Food issues 食事: Interdisciplinary Studies on Food in Modern and Contemporary East Asia / [ed] Miriam Castorina; Diego Cucinelli, Florence: Firenze University Press, 2021, p. 127-142Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the famine that befell China following the disaster of the Great LeapForward, hunger was a major affliction for the people undergoing reform in the laborcamps. Food—in terms of procurement, consumption, or just discursive recollection—wasa central issue in the prisoners’ lives and, as a consequence, descriptions of meals andeating practices are a recurring presence in Chinese literary texts that revolve around thosecarceral experiences. This contribution investigates three literary works that reconstructpersonal experiences of imprisonment by way of eating: Wang Ruowang’s Hunger Trilogy(1980), Zhang Xianliang’s Mimosa (1984), and Yang Xianhui’s Chronicles of Jiabiangou(2003). In these texts, food becomes a privileged perspective through which to look athow personal and collective memories are re-appropriated and re-elaborated, as well asto analyze how narratives of the past are consumed and produced.

    Intertextual Trajectories of Remembering: Taiwan’s Authoritarian Past in Contemporary Fiction2023In: The Journal of the European Association for Chinese Studies, ISSN 2709-9946, Vol. 4, p. 5-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the end of the Kuomintang’s authoritarian rule, in the late 1980s, Taiwan gradually opened to a public discussion of its own traumatic past, characterised by systematic government abuse, violent dissent suppression, and general disregard of civil and human rights. The memories of that history found ways to be expressed through a number of different media, including literature. This paper investigates two pieces of post-martial-law fiction, namely Zhu Tianxin’s “Once Upon a Time There Was an Urashima Taro” and Huang Chong-kai’s “Dixson’s Idioms”, which, in different ways and from different authorial perspectives, elaborate on the experience of political imprisonment during the White Terror. In these texts, inter-textuality is consistently used as a strategic narrative device to conjure the past into the present, and therefore constitutes a productive analytical perspective from which to look at Taiwan’s post-authoritarian literary mnemonic practices.

    Prisonscape: Literary Reconfigurations of the Real and Imagined Worlds of the Chinese Prison2020Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on the prison writings from and about modern China (from the Mao era to the present day). It builds on previous research on Chinese prison camp literature as well as on sociological and historical studies of the evolution of punishments, both within the Chinese context and from a more global perspective. Theoretically and methodologically, the subject is approached through the conceptual model of the prisonscape. Informed by Arjun Appadurai’s theories on global interactions and by Edward Soja’s notion of “thirdspace,” this model is employed to explore the ways in which prison, through literature, is re-mapped as an “imagined world."

    The aim of this work is twofold: on the one hand, it seeks to characterize prison writings as a global literary genre and to position Chinese prison literature within a national literary system and in relation to a “world literary space” (Casanova). On the other hand, the literary analysis aims at illuminating key aspects of the imagined world of the Chinese prison. The textual analysis is organized around two main thematic explorations that focus, in turn, on a spatial and a corporeal dimension. Through the literary investigation of carceral spaces and carceral bodies, this study ultimately aims to contribute to a deeper and broader understanding of the Chinese prisonscape.

    Repugnant Bodies. An Analysis of the Disgust Aesthetics in Yang Xianhui’s Chronicles of Jiabiangou2021In: Humanities Bulletin, ISSN 2517-4266, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 215-229Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Yang Xianhui’s Chronicles of Jiabiangou (2003) is a collection of stories detailing life and death during the Anti-Rightist Movement (1957-59) in the homonymous laogai camp located in the middle of the Gobi Desert, in the Chinese north-western province of Gansu. Based on the author’s extensive research, fieldwork and interviews with Jiabiangou survivors, in many instances the text dwells on particularly foul descriptions, mostly related to the harsh living conditions of prisoners undergoing reform, further exacerbated by the hostile geographical setting and by a famine that had struck the whole country. Physically and morally offensive descriptions of bodily expulsions and incorporations are portrayed with straightforward yet evocative accuracy, revealing very appalling aspects of the laogai experience.

    Building on psychological analyses and phenomenological interpretations of disgust, this paper interrogates some key passages in the textwhere the literary iconography is built through the use of this aesthetic technique, with a special attention to the representation of carceral bodies -often construed as the true repugnant objects. Through the analysis of this symbolic bodily iconography, this paper addresses the text’s contribution to the construction of alternative narratives of incarceration and political persecution that have the potential to challenge Chinese orthodox historiography.
