    Att tänka med alla sinnen: Aforismen och K. J.2013In: Tidskrift för litteraturvetenskap, ISSN 1104-0556, E-ISSN 2001-094X, no 2, p. 49-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the aphorisms of Klara Johanson (1875–1948) are related to the history of the genre. I argue that her aphorisms should be examined in the light of the romantic aphorism and be considered as a contribution to aesthetics. The etymology of the term ”aesthetics” – sensuous perception – foregrounds the body, as does the earliest uses of the term ”aphorism” (Aphorismoi was the title of Hippocrates’ famous compendium of medical propositions and recommendations). The meaning of the term was later transferred from medicine to other disciplines, most notably politics, drawing on the analogy of the relation between the health of the physical body and the health of the state (connected by the theory of the four humours). Of course, by the beginning of the 20th century, that theory was no longer valid. However, the connection between the body and the state had endured, and was now understood in terms of the romantic concept of the ”organism”. Johanson’s aphorisms unite these two aspects: the body as sensuous perception and the body related to the state. According to Gerhard Neumann’s definition, the form of the romantic aphorism is a representation of conflict between abstract, mathematical truth, and personal, sensuous truth. This conflict informs Johanson’s aphorisms, although her modern take on the romantic conflict was more in line with the Italian philosopher Benedetto Croce, whose works Johanson introduced and translated into Swedish. In his view, aesthetics should precede logic, since individual perception precedes any understanding of a pure concept. I argue that Johanson’s aphorisms constitute a political statement, situating the individual truth at the centre of experience, and defending the need to take personal differences into account in order to heal the social ”organism” of society. To think with all your senses is to accrue historical knowledge; an aesthetic method with political implications.

    Guds rike i 1800-talet – en politisk utopi2019In: Framtiden i samtiden / [ed] Mikael Kurkiala, Skellefteå: Artos & Norma bokförlag, 2019, Vol. 4, p. 25-39Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna essä avser att belysa vår samtid genom det tidiga 1800-talets utopiska rörelser, närmare bestämt kopplingen mellan nationalism och gudsrikestanken. I fokus står föreställningar om tid: hur förstås samtid och framtid som bemängd med dåtid? Hur uppfattar vi den samtidighet som vi delar med våra medmänniskor? 1800-talets människor skulle insistera på att frågan även bör vändas om: hur förstås samtid och dåtid som formad av framtid? Det är här Guds rike kommer in. Diskussionen tar avstamp i spänningen mellan nostalgi och utopi för att leda över till politiska projekt i svensk skönlitteratur vid mitten 1800-talet: konstruktioner av folk, utopiskt samhällsbyggande och kiliasm (föreställningar om Kristi återkomst och införandet av Guds rike). Mitt främsta exempel är Fredrika Bremers roman Syskonlif, utgiven revolutionsåret 1848. När nationalismen var en utopi och nationellt medvetande skulle skapas aktivt var idén om nationen en annan än idag.

    Nils and the Social Mother as a Migrating Goose2018In: TijdSchrift voor Skandinavistiek, ISSN 0168-2148, E-ISSN 1875-9505, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 117-124Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This contribution explores the ideals of citizenship in Selma Lagerlöf’s Nils Holgersson’s Wonderful Journey through Sweden (1906-1907).1 The social morals taught by Akka the goose – possibly one of the world’s most famous female leaders – influenced Swedish school children and children around the world for decades. The analysis shows that Akka is an example of Ellen Key’s concept of the ‘Social Mother’, promoting early ‘folk ideology’. Taking the cue from Sara Ahmed’s theory of ‘affective economies’, I investigate the function of fear in building a nation. A comparison with Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book (1894-1895) makes clear that although power struggle is a common theme in these two children’s books, fear has an equally important but opposing role in each book in the founding of society. In The Jungle Book, fear installs a constitutional order and guarantees Man’s supremacy over the animals, while fear in Nils Holgersson fosters community across different species; in Lagerlöf’s affective economy, fear does indeed establish boundaries, but also functions as a means to transgression and as a source of social virtues. Contrary to Berggren and Trägårdh’s claim that independence is at the core of ‘the Swedish ideology’, the experience of dependence and fear is necessary to achieve a responsible form of independence. Nils’s progress reflects a psychologically informed process of development of moral virtues in several steps, initially motivated by self-preservation, then self-assertion, habit, and finally by an ethics of love. The story also portrays different forms of government, opting for democratic rule that is intent on creating a home for the people. The nation-building function of fear is to balance the power struggle for a citizen’s right to recognition with an insight into the vulnerability of life and the need for transgressive love.

    Vägen ut: Förtryck och frihet i några böcker av Ole Lund Kirkegaard2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande studie undersöker frihetsproblematiken i några böcker av Ole Lund Kirkegaard,

    främst i Gummi-Tarzan och Robban och alla de andra polarna, men också i Tarzan, Leo och några

    till. Mer specifikt undersöks hur karaktärer kan bli fria och hur en önskvärd frihet ser ut, enligt

    intentionen som står att finna i de olika texterna. Den diskuterar också huruvida texterna kan kallas

    didaktiska eller ej. Studien genomförs med hjälp av ett hermeneutiskt tillvägagångssätt och i en

    analys av de olika berättargrepp och -strategier som återfinns i texterna. De olika möjliga friheterna

    definieras i analysen indirekt genom att förtryck först definieras. Utifrån antagandet att såväl barn

    som vuxna är utövare av makt inom varje given institution där de båda är närvarande, till exempel

    inom familjen eller i skolan, utgår analysen från premissen att både barn och vuxna kan agera

    förtryckare eller förtryckta i förhållande till varandra.

    Viss specifik frihetsproblematik för Gummi-Tarzan respektive Robban och alla de andra

    polarna klarläggs, men också några gemensamma återkommande motiv som befinns vara centrala

    för förståelsen av frihetsproblematiken i texterna sedda som helhet: kaoset, sagan och magin, och

    drömmen. Sagan, magin och drömmen ses i studien som uttryck för barnkaraktärernas

    fantasiförmåga. Både kaoset och fantasin uppfattas i uppsatsen vara vägar till frihet och friheter i

    sig. De ses som kännetecknande för barnprotagonisterna och en viss barnvärld. Denna värld är

    förebildlig i jämförelse med den skildrade vuxenvärlden, men är inte nödvändigtvis tillsluten för

    vuxna karaktärer.

    McSweeney's and the Challenges of the Marketplace for Independent Publishing2013In: CLCWeb, ISSN 1481-4374, E-ISSN 1481-4374, Vol. 15, no 4, article id 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In their article McSweeney's and the Challenges of the Marketplace for Independent Publishing Katrien Bollen, Stef Craps, and Pieter Vermeulen argue that the artistic projects of the US-American author, activist, and editor Dave Eggers are marked by a tension between the desire for independence and the demands of brand-building. The article offers a close analysis of the materiality and paratexts of one particular issue of McSweeney's, the literary magazine of which Eggers is the founding editor. Both the content and the apologetically aggressive tone of Eggers's editorial statements betray a deep unease with the inability to inhabit a cultural and economic position that is untainted by the compromises that publishing requires. Still, this disavowed complicity with the market in fact sustains Eggers's editorial practice in McSweeney's, which, in marked contrast to his explicit statements, thrives on a dynamic of commodification.

    La nature dans la poésie anglo-américaine du xxe siècle: Le lieu comme réappropriation du langage par la nature2015In: La Nature Citadine: Au Royaume Uni. Concevoir, Vivre, Représenter. / [ed] Marie Mianowski, Sylvie Nail, Pierre Carboni, Rennes: Presses Universitaires de Rennes , 2015, p. 179-192Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    La place de la nature dans la littérature, et plus généralement dans le langage, moyen de communication principalement humain, est analogue à sa place dans certains nouveaux milieux urbains: la nature est introduite dans un système qui prétend lui donner une place mais qui lui demeure fondamentalement antithétique. Dans l'environnement humain que constitue un poème, il semble parfois qu' à travers la mention de lieux, la nature se réapproprie l'espace qui lui a été donné et influence le langage utilisé pour la représenter.

     

    En effet, le lieu, au coeur de toute expérience physique, est également l'une des images les plus utilisées par le langage abstrait. Ainsi, les figures de localisation spatiale, c'est à dire la mention de lieux ou de mouvements dans l'espace, forment le lien le plus direct entre une expérience physique et sa conceptualisation, entre la nature non-humaine et sa représentation dans le poème.

     

    Ce phénomène se manifeste par l'usage particulier de la localisation dans des poèmes traitant de la nature non-humaine: c'est cet usage que notre étude se propose d'analyser. Par exemple, lorsque certains poètes décrivent des créatures non-humaines, ils les désignent comme des lieux, comme si c'était le seul moyen respectueux de représenter le non-humain: le “Serpent” de D. H. Lawrence prend souvent la place d'un complément de lieu, l'”Ours” de Ted Hughes est “un puits / trop profond pour scintiller” et le “Corbeau Solitaire” de Norman MacCaig est “dans ses plumes – un monde entier de corbeau” (mes traductions). Une étude plus approfondie de poèmes britanniques sur le non-humain révèle entre autres choses que le fait de mentionner un lieu ou un changement de lieu constitue souvent l'événement sur lequel repose le poème. Cette tendance fait d'ailleurs écho au projet plus vaste de certains poètes de remettre la nature, traditionnellement considérée comme simple décor, au coeur même de l'expériene poétique.

    War and Continuity in D. H. Lawrence's Works2015In: Etudes Lawrenciennes, ISSN 2272-4001, no 46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The incipit of Lady Chatterley’s Lover has a particular distant tone and is immediately attributed to its protagonist: “This was more or less Constance Chatterley’s position.” The free indirect speech, the mitigating use of the adverbs “more or less” and the overall non-committal impression conveyed by this paragraph should alert us on the fact that it does not account for Lawrence’s vision of the effect of the Great War. However, these first lines seem to encompass claims often made when depicting Lawrence’s vision of the war. After a brief summary of those claims, this paper will seek to show that even though they are absolutely legitimate, they do not account for the whole of Lawrence’s reaction and depiction of the war and its aftermath: instead of the common idea of rupture and confinement brought about by the war, this paper emphasizes, through a close reading of war scenes and descriptions of characters before and after the war, the notion of continuity through the war.

    Embedded Madness: Mad Narrators and Possible Worlds2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Madness has long been a popular theme for literature, featuring as a trope of horror, mystery, tragedy and comedy genres in varying degrees of amplitude. The topic has provided a significant access point for analysing historical, socio-political and cultural issues as it addresses controversial themes of alienation and criminality as well as philosophical theories of perception and consciousness. As a result, studies on the representation of madness in literature have been dominated by historical approaches that focus directly on social, political, philosophical and psychoanalytical interpretive models. Comparatively little has been done to analyse madness in literature from a narratological perspective. It is for this reason that I will conduct a narratological study on the impact of madness on narrative and fictional world structures. I am specifically interested in the way in which madness can be embedded across multiple levels of the narrative and the effect that this has on readers’ imaginative and interpretive processes. Close readings of Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club (1996) Bret Easton-Ellis’ American Psycho (1991) and John Banville’s The Book of Evidence (1989) will uncover some of the techniques that are used to embed madness into the textual and imaginative structures of a narrative, and will demonstrate how this works to deceive and challenge the reader. I will demonstrate the need for an expansion of terms within the narratological model that can cope specifically with the theme of madness.

    'A Pointer for Beauty': Photography, Ekphrasis, and the Aesthetics of Attention in Johannes Jaeger's 1866 Photobook2013In: History of Photography, ISSN 0308-7298, E-ISSN 2150-7295, Vol. 37, no 4, p. 421-430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay inquires into attention and detail as aesthetic categories in the nineteenth-century reception of photography in Scandinavia. It circles around what is generally considered to be Sweden’s first book with original photographs, Johannes Jaeger’s Molin’s Fountain in Photographs, with text (1866), read through two articles on the aesthetic potential of the photographic medium written by two contemporary Scandinavian art critics. In seven albumen print photographs, the book documents a fountain sculpture by Swedish sculptor Johan Peter Molin, exhibited at the first Scandinavian Art and Industrial Exhibition in 1866. However, the book also includes poetry; each photograph is juxtaposed with a poetic stanza that describes the part of the sculpture that the photograph reproduces. This paper studies the close relation between image and text in Jaeger’s volume. It argues that a contemporary view of the photographic image, also articulated by the Scandinavian art critics, can be discerned from the layout of the book – namely, that photography produces images too distractive and oversaturated with insignificant details to be aesthetically valuable. The visual and verbal framework for the photographs, then, arguably aims to overcompensate the distractive qualities of the image, by regulating the reader/viewer’s attention towards the sculpture and its significant details. In this ambition, Jaeger’s photobook anticipates a future aesthetic appreciation of the photograph in its own right.

    Konsten att tämja en bild: Fotografiet och läsarens uppmärksamhet i 1800-talets Sverige2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study inquires into the problematization of attention in the reception and distribution of photography in 19th-century Sweden. It investigates how photography’s alleged abundance of detail and indiscriminate reproduction became a problem in the reception of the medium. The problem became urgent when photographs were put to use by established discourses; specifically, when used in printed publications meant for a public. The thesis therefore argues that the problem of attention had a profound influence on how printed photographic or photographically illustrated editions (photo-texts) were modelled and arranged. For this purpose, the study affirms a particular focus on attention practices: the various ways in which the printed editions aim to regulate the reader’s attention before the supposedly distractive image. Specifically, the thesis focuses on how texts in these printed editions are arranged or juxtaposed in relation to the image, how they speak of and to the images, what values they reflect, and what effects they could be said to produce.

    Consequently, the present study is more than an investigation of a problem; it is also an inquiry into the various attempts to overcome this problem. The problem and its responsive practices will have different characteristics in the various contexts of individual discourses. Therefore, the study situates the problem of attention in four prominent genres of 19th-century photography: the topographical albums of photographic views, art books with photographic reproductions, the scientific atlas, and the photographically illustrated travelogue. These genres and forms of publication, as well as the discourses of attention relating to them, are discussed in separate chapters. Every chapter departs from a specific Swedish photographic edition from the nineteenth-century.

    In sum, the thesis aims – with its focus on the problematization of attention – at giving a new historical perspective on the emergent relation between photography and the printed word.

    Ett annat tiotal: En studie i Anna Lenah Elgströms tiotalsprosa1998Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the literary texts by Elgström in relation to the political, cultural and literary context of the years between 1910 and 1920.

    Among her contemporaries Elgström was important, but today she is completely unknown. The literary criticism of her time is one of the reasons why her writings have been transferred to the periphery. When she made her début, Elgström was very positively received. After that, the literary critics were not capable of seeing the innovative aspects of her prose of that period and a discussion of incomprehensibility was initiated, in which words like hysterical, extatic and exalted became catchwords. It appears that Elgström created a form of expression that was not yet accepted in literature. The male dominated literary criticism was at a loss and Elgström was ignored.

    The prose she wrote during the period in question has a distinctly experimental approach. In her literary texts, that are violating the standard conventions, Elgström appears as a female modernist and creates alternative images in the form of feminist and pacifist utopias. Expressionism is the modernist movement that can mainly be related to her prose of this period. Like the expressionists, she expresses a new sense of life which is permeated with religious conceptions.

    In the study the female modernism is seen in a feminist perspective, as well as in a perspective of gender theory where networks constitute an important basis. Elgström often worked in female networks and thus she became an important figure in the context of female literature and female politics of that time.

    By showing Elgström's kinship with the nation-wide early Swedish modernism, the Finno-Swedish modernism and the German expressionism, as well as by illustrating Elgström's position in the context of female literature and female politics of that time, the study contributes to a different image of the 1910s.

    Empathy at the confluence of neuroscience and empirical literary studies2016In: Scientfic Study of Literature, ISSN 2210-4372, E-ISSN 2210-4380, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 6-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this article is to review extant empirical studies of empathy in narrative reading in light of (i) contemporary literary theory, and (ii) neuroscientific studies of empathy, and to discuss how a closer interplay between neuroscience and literary studies may enhance our understanding of empathy in narrative reading. An introduction to some of the philosophical roots of empathy is followed by tracing its application in contemporary literary theory, in which scholars have pursued empathy with varying degrees of conceptual precision, often within the context of embodied/enactive cognition. The presentation of empirical literary studies of empathy is subsequently contextualized by an overview of psychological and neuroscientific aspects of empathy. Highlighting points of convergence and divergence, the discussion illustrates how findings of empirical literary studies align with recent neuroscientific research. The article concludes with some prospects for future empirical research, suggesting that digitization may contribute to advancing the scientific knowledge of empathy in narrative reading.

    Den Stilistiska Tove Jansson En stilanalys av Bildhuggarens dotter & Det osynliga barnet och andra berättelser2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med min uppsats är att granska Tove Janssons stilistiska drag i hennes sätt att skriva ur ett barns perspektiv. Utifrån mitt undersökningsmaterial vill jag belysa en stor förändring mot vuxenförfattarskapet i Tove Janssons sätt att skriva. Jag vill med med min analys utröna hur Tove Jansson gestaltar barnets upplevelse av tillvaron: det mytiska och magiska mitt i vardagen, spänningen mellan trygghet, skräck och den gränslösa fantasin. Min uppsats är uppdelad i två delar. I den empiriska analysen förklarar jag begrepp och termer ur kunskapsmässigt etablerade teorier, som är relevanta för min senare analys. I den andra delen, den analytiska undersökningen, förenar jag de teoretiska delarna med min analys kring Tove Janssons språkanvändning och termer som föder hennes stilgrepp.

    Helper and Obstacle : the image of the father in four Swedish mother-narrated novels of the early 21st Century: Myrén, Nordin, Sandberg and Sveland2013In: Studies in the Maternal, ISSN 2342-5741, E-ISSN 1759-0434, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In my research on French and Swedish mother-narrated novels, the role given to the father stands out as a prime locus of difference between the two literatures. In the French mother-narratives, the most striking feature of the father is his absence. In accordance with the 20th Century image of the father, he is typically excluded from the mother-child dyad, and when present, he generally incarnates not body and care, but rather a traditional image of the father as bread-winner, law-keeper and/or representative for the outer sphere. In the Swedish novels, things are different. Without idealizing neither the stories, nor Sweden as a country, I will, in this paper, display some examples of a new and insistent trope in Swedish literature: the father as a caring bodily presence. Partly in light of the French novels, I will explore what this presence amounts to in four novels in which the mother is a narrator, and what it means for the narrating mothers. The novels I analyse are: I en familj finns inga fiender by Viktoria Myrén (2009); Ta itu by Kristina Sandberg (2003); Bitterfittan by Maria Sveland (2007); and Gå sönder, gå hel by Sofia Nordin (2011). I argue that the father is ascribed a double role, as both a helper and an obstacle in the mother's quest for liberation and subjectivity. On the one hand, he helps the mother to free herself from the idea of the mother as the exclusive natural parent and to move towards gender equality. On the other hand, he is insensitive to the oppressive effects of the traditional mother image, and sometimes uses it himself to limit his partner, by inducing feelings of guilt. I suggest that this ambiguous literary image of the father can be understood as an articulation of the imbalance between norm and reality concerning gender equality, which is present in Sweden today.

    Litteraturförmedling på gymnasienivå: En studie av kanon, beskrivningar och litteratursyn i fyra läromedelspaket för gymnasieskolan2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines in which way literature is presented in four schoolbooks for the Swedish senior high school of today, compared to descriptions and selections in Swedish universities. The study covers two basic schoolbook categories used in the teaching of Swedish and comparative literature: anthologies and textbooks.

    The four anthologies structures and their joined canon are presented, and the text canon of 12 common writers is studied and compared to the corresponding text canon in the universities selection of texts to main courses in comparative literature. The four textbooks are analysed by close reading of the presentations of four different writers and their works, where the textbooks for the Swedish senior high school are viewed through the glass of literary guides used in Swedish universities.

    The study also analyses what literary perspective is present in the Swedish school principles for education in literature and display, through earlier didactic studies, a sketch of the classroom reality of education in literature.

    The study finds that the examined schoolbooks for the Swedish senior high school tend to, not only shorten the text length and amount of texts but also, simplify the selection and presentation of the writers production. This leads to certain fixed and, in some cases, almost stereotyped ‘roles’ that are assigned to the writers and limits their production. The examined schoolbooks also tend to focus on the themes and meaning of the texts, while neglecting the structure, language and form. Further more, the view on canon is often fairly uncomplicated and seemingly unaware of the many years of canon debates.

    The selection of the four examined anthologies and textbooks for the Swedish senior high school, Ekengrens svenska, Svenska spår 2, Den levande litteraturen and Möt litteraturen, were based on popularity on the market. The corresponding material for Swedish universities was based on the selection in main courses in comparative literature from four of the largest universities: Göteborg, Lund, Stockholm and Uppsala. The selection of the four different writers and their work was based on a study on the canon of school editions of complete literary works in senior high schools of Stockholm.

    Det modernistiska subjektsupproret: en undersökning av relationen mellan form och innehåll i Karin Boyes Kris2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föremålet för min undersökning är Karin Boyes roman Kris och intentionen har varit att finna en nytolkning av den ofta biografiskt lästa texten. Syftet var att redogöra för hur romanen synliggör samtidens patriarkala maktordning som genomsyrar samhällets auktoriteter och reducerar det kvinnliga subjektet. Undersökningen har också innefattat hur huvudpersonen Malin tar sig ur krisen genom att återupprätta egenviljan och erkänna driften som en naturlig del av jaget. 

        Med utgångspunkt i textens litterära kvaliteter och med ett kritiskt feministiskt perspektiv har jag analyserat framställningen av romanens kritiska tendens som ett uttryck för kvinnlig frigörelse. Malin genomgår en värdemässig identitetskris vilket är romanens centrala tema och samtidigt en möjlig allegori över samtidens sociala omvälvningar. Krisen utgörs av en inre splittring där uppbrottet från traditionella och religiösa förordningar är den enda räddningen undan självutplåning. Utöver ramberättelsen om Malins kris finns inslag av varierande textkaraktär som brev, dikter och dialoger som splittrar huvudberättelsen. Formens experimentella utförande polemiserar på detta sätt mot den traditionella romankonsten och förstärker temats kritiska tendens. Därav samverkar form och innehåll i ett ifrågasättande av samtidens förtryckande normer, reaktionära auktoriteter och traditionens “absoluta sanningar”.

    Vom Narren zum Gralskönig: Die Bedeutung der minne für Parzivals Entwicklung2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    From an ingenious fool to the Grail King: the significance of courtly love in Wolfram’s Parzival

    The focus of this thesis lies on the doctrines in courtly behavior, a multifaceted system of chivalric norms and behaviors often referred to as the knightly virtue system based on the literature of the early and high Middle Ages. The aim of this thesis is to study the different aspects, such as religious, military, courtly and romantic, of the knightly virtue system. The romantic aspect of the knightly ideal is given particular attention, as it is the focus of this paper.

    The word minne is the bearer of the romantic aspect and is central in Wolfram’s von Eschenbach Parzival which is the main source studied. The following issues are discussed in more detail: how the knightly ideal is presented in Wolfram’s epic and to what extent the minne affects the development of Parzival to the Grail king. In the course of this thesis it will also be shown that the romantic aspect is the most influential aspect of the knightly virtue system and that this particular aspect truly defines an ideal knight.
