    Funny Bodies, Humour and Grotesque in English Childrens´ Literature1997Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is a study of grotesque and transgressional humour in English children's literature. The grotesque is seen here as a liminal and ambivalent aesthetic category at the junction between two fields of tension: the fantastic and the real in one field and the comic and the horrible in the other. Transgression denotes the breaking of rules surrounding the clean and closed body. Both transgression and the grotesque pose threats, threats that may be laughable if they are cast in the right literary form.

    Childness, the changing construction of the image of childhood, has been based on the process of civilisation that maintains power structures by inculcating revulsion at the body. At the same time childhood is constructed by adults as an innocent place, safe from adult anxiety, both sexual and social. This leads to a desire for repressed categories expressed in outlandish, and often violent ways in children's literature, in itself a haven from suspicion. Food - including eating and being eaten - and waste - including violence, death and decomposition - are the two transgressional categories used to create laughter throughout the works I study.

    Against the backdrop of social and literary developments, I read Lewis Carroll's Hunting of the Snark and Ted Hughes's poetry for children in terms of the mortal, Romantic grotesque, the painful joke of existence; Edward Lear's limericks and Roald Dahl's stories and verses embody the vital, Renaissance grotesque, closely linked to carnival. Carroll's earlier work, notably the Alice books, and Christina Rossetti's work for children, notably Goblin Market, I also examine in the light of these concepts of grotesque and transgression. All of these bodies of work are populated by the deformed and twisted body whose varying presentation in funny books for children indicates the changing image of childhood in society.

    Orden del cuerpo y orden mítico-: Épica y exterminio en el poema largo contemporáneo2015In: CELA (Centro de Estudios de Literatura Argentina), Rosario, Argentina: CELA (Centro de Estudios de Literatura Argentina) , 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [es]

    Esta ponencia es un acercamiento al texto Cuando todo acabe todo acabará (2008) de Ana Arzoumanian como un poema largo que instala su lugar de enunciación en el orden de los mitos y la historia, estableciendo así una relación con el género épico. Este texto exhibe una tensión entre un orden del cuerpo y un orden mítico que se articula desde una poética que trabaja con el ‘resto’, como modo de representación estética, marco de visión y noción crítica. A partir de esta articulación, propongo un conjunto de reflexiones sobre las herencias de la guerra y los relatos sobre el exterminio en este poema extenso. A su vez, la tensión entre cuerpo y mito también problematiza la herencia épica –como discurso y como género– que se plasma históricamente en el género del poema extenso.

    SCENE STIR: How we begin to see the biosphere in David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay marks the degrading biosphere in David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas and argues that its narrative disclosure is meaningfully explored using the idea of a growing ecological awareness. The book depicts agentive nonhumans that are unseen or under-attended by the novel’s humans. I suggest this literary presentation of the biosphere is best understood as after the discovery of global warming when matters of ecological concern “intruded,” to use Timothy Morton’s word, on a human-only society with underequipped modes of historical thought. To construct my reading, I motivate recent work in object-oriented philosophies that would eschew anthropocentric metaphysics. I unpack Cloud Atlas’ ecological vision using Morton’s philosophy in which he explores the conceptual and aesthetic consequences of the hyperobject – a thing that is massively distributed in time and space relative to humans.

    My analysis will examine passages and techniques that construct Cloud Atlas’ “scenery,” and I argue that they evoke a degrading biosphere that interacts substantially with the human-only personal dramas. Features of the book’s formal construction allow for the animation of this scenery in the reader’s cross-novel interpretation. I look at how characters narrate this scenery to build my argument that the novel’s ecological vision makes claims on its storytelling characters. But as those characters still miss the long-view historical perspectives afforded the reader, they are shown to want community. I end by ruminating on how Cloud Atlas, which would “stretch” the literary novel, questions what the novel is at this ecological moment.

    Hushållspolitik: Konsumtion, kön och uppfostran i August Strindbergs Giftas2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this doctoral thesis is to read August Strindberg’s Giftas in relation to two strands: conduct books on one hand and consumer culture on the other, and to analyse representations of the presence of didactic, disciplinary subject positions as well as the presence of consumer culture, in relation to gender and exercise of power.

    In the thesis the concepts of consumption/consumerism, including transaction and exposition, are introduced and analysed, as well as the discussion around the status of marriage, and the debate about gender differences and power relations at the time of the publication of Giftas. The analyses explore how, in the short stories, as well as in the prefaces of Giftas, discourses on the debate about marriage, the ”woman question”, consumer culture and conduct books are represented, discussed and displayed.

    Conceptions of voice, space, and playing with the genre and tone of the conduct books is present in the analyses. The study also centres on homosociality versus heterosociality, and the concept of the heterosexual matrix, and examines how consumerism could take the form both of asceticism, and of sexualised violence. The city as a ‘room’ for consumer culture is exposed; the suspicious figure of the bachelor is pitted against the husband and the father. The concepts of transaction, exposition and transformation in the contexts of consumer culture are discussed, and how these concepts are centred around questions of advertising and consumption of goods as well as human relationships, and how power structures defining the experiences of love in the consumer society, is an effect of a capitalist system based on an economy of credits. The discourses of consumer culture and education, in relation to power structures, are represented in the analyses, as well as the discourse on the position of the educator, in relationship to an overarching critique against the national educational system put forward by Strindberg in his stories. The conflict around taking a didactic position is central in Giftas. The diverse didactic positions taken up by women is put into question and found problematic; and this is one point where Strindberg toys with – and is polemic against – the conduct book-genre. Another main theme in the thesis is the silencing of the speaker’s voice, how differently this turns out for the male protagonist and the female. The question of how to ”do gender in the right way” is also recurring throughout as centre of interest in Strindberg’s stories, how the protagonists perform their expected gender roles in ”the wrong way”,

    This study examines the relationships between, on one hand, the genre of the conduct books, the manuals of manners, in August Strindberg’s two short story collections Giftas, and on the other, how this presence of didactic discourse intersects with discourses of consumer culture in various forms. In this study, I show a strong presence of both these kinds of discourse, presented in various ways throughout the stories. I have exposed how Strindberg both relates to – and plays with – the genre of ”manuals of manners” in the two collections of short stories examined, and how it is mobilised in an interplay with the discourses on consumerism, which are equally prevalent in the stories.

    Au sujet de quelques modalités de l’imaginaire du Nord: Étude de cas sur la réception littéraire suédoise2019In: Etudes germaniques, ISSN 0014-2115, E-ISSN 2426-5543, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the author defines several modes of the Nordic imaginary based on a case study in literary reception. The corpus is composed of articles on contemporary French-language literature in the Swedish press between 2010 and 2014. Building on recent research on borealism (Briens 2018) and the Nordic imaginary (Chartier 2018), this article examines the endogenous discourse on the North in order to identify its primary characteristics and functions. Several illustrative cases in the reception of French-speaking authors in the Swedish press serve as a basis for an exploration of the mechanisms involved when the Swedish internal discourse on the North intersects and interacts with external discourses from Francophone writers. The results contribute to clarifying the modes of interaction between exogenous and endogenous discourses on the North. This case study, which focuses in particular on the literatures of the South, allows the author to define three new modes of endogenous discourse on the North. The author proposes the notion of transnordic exogenous discourse to illustrate this particular aspect of borealism.

    Au sujet d’une nouvelle histoire littéraire francophone transnationale: L’enjeu des études de réception dans les territoires non francophones2019In: Revue Romane, ISSN 0035-3906, E-ISSN 1600-0811Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers the Francophone literary canon based on a transnational reception study. It focuses on the circulation of French language literature within the Swedish academic system during the last thirty years. A longitudinal empirical study of bachelor and doctoral dissertations in French between 1986 and 2016 allows the author to examine the dynamics of canon formation and renewal, as well as the role of universities in this process, particularly in regard to the creation of a canon of Francophone literary works. In response to recent scholarly anthologies which have debated the Francophone canon, this study is able to confirm the existence of Francophone classics. Finally, it is argued that further reception studies focusing on areas outwith the Francophone literary system will be of prime importance if the question of the Francophone canon is to be fully assessed beyond the immediate context of the Hexagone.

    La spiritualité du théâtre strindbergien dans la mouvance de Péladan : L’idéal féminin dans Le Chemin de Damas2007In: Romanitas, lenguas y literaturas romances., ISSN 1937-5697, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 33-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Si la vocation de la femme, et du couple en général, est un sujet de préoccupation dans la littérature française fin de siècle, cet aspect apparaît comme un élément fondamental dans le théâtre de Strindberg et de son confrère français, Péladan. Contemporains l’un de l’autre, Strindberg a toujours admiré l’œuvre de son maître. Aux yeux de l’écrivain Suédois, Péladan est le porte-parole du catholicisme et est à la tête d’un mouvement de conversion qui saisit la France de l’époque. Le projet de cet article est de montrer comment l’idéal féminin se développe chez les deux auteurs en prenant pour objet d’analyse l’étude comparée de leurs pièces, Le Chemin de Damas (1898-1901), La Prométhéide (1895) et Le Prince de Byzance (1896). À l’issue de cet examen, nous dégagerons comment le motif de la chasteté se dessine à travers l’idéal féminin tout en soulevant les divergences d’interprétation chez les deux auteurs. Si Péladan s’inspire de la mythologie grecque en réactualisant notamment le mythe de Pandore, Strindberg réinvestit de son côté ce mythe mais exploite, à la différence de ce premier, la figure mariale de la Vierge Marie, la deuxième Ève, icône de la femme pure, chaste et médiatrice du salut. Au-delà de leurs interprétations théâtrales, qui semblent présenter des issues différentes, un même idéal de virginité semble habiter les personnages.

    L'Ambivalence d'un positionnement littéraire : Strindberg face à la Suède et la France entre 1898 et 1902: The Ambivalence of a literary positioning: Strindberg against Sweden and France between 1898 and 19022013In: Revue Études Germaniques, ISSN 0014-2115, no 4, p. 543-560Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article evaluates how Strindberg positions himself in Sweden and France between 1898 and 1902. Strindberg returns to Sweden from his travels to renew theart of theatre, while maintaining a keen interest in affairs outside of Sweden, and especially in France. Looking at Strindberg’s correspondence and the reception of his work, it becomes clear that he wishes to forge links with the former naturalists, now converted, in order to break new ground. He sets out to innovate, and presents himself as an avant-gardist and a challenger. The theoretical basis of this study is taken from Bourdieu’s and Maingueneau’s hypotheses regarding the strategies the author adopts to position himself within the literary field. Through an investigation of Strindberg’s statements and action strategies it is clear that he is trying to free himself from the Swedish literary, political and religious establishment and to become a « secular theist », for fear of being labelled a Catholic sympathizer.

    Abstract [en]

    Strindberg and Huysmans belong to the same fin de siècle mysticism period and deal with the same religious dream, more specifically one concerning the setting up of a “monastically inspired artistic community”. Whereas Huysmans realized a part of this dream and became a Benedictine oblate while at the same time trying to found a “colony of artists” of his own and to some extent succeeded, Strindberg did not. The Swedish writer could never materialize his plan, several aspects of which were extensively described in his letters. Instead of becoming a monk, he used his own literary writing and incarnated his dream in a number of theatrical pieces. This study investigates the two different modes in which Huysmans and Strindberg respectively lived his own particular dream.

    Abstract [en]

    Inferno constitutes a turning point in Strindberg’s literary production in that scriptural quotations appear more frequently and a new style emerges. This article presents the characteristics of the scriptural quotations appearing in Inferno (1897) and Jacob Wrestles (a fragment following Légendes, written in French and in Swedish in 1898). The linguistic analysis — with includes comparative, discourse, textual and intertextual approaches — is used to define the place and role of scriptural quotations in this literary corpus. This study has revealed three different types of biblical writings which show the spiritual disposition and the religious evolution of the narrator in each text.

    La nouvelle voie littéraire francophone ou la voix des minorités: Les littératures francophones dans la presse suédoise entre 2005 et 20142016In: Les Francophonies: Connexions, déconnexions, interstices, marges et ruptures / [ed] Marcelin Vounda Etoa, Désiré Atangana Kouna, Presses Universitaires de Yaoundé (PUY) , 2016, p. 123-148Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Literatures in the French language have become difficult to delimit in a time when their reconstruction and expansion are in full bloom. Until recently, the term “francophone” has been defined as French literature originating from outside of the Hexagon, as post-colonial literature and as minor literature, while today it signifies a cosmopolite literature. How is this tendency perceived outside of France and what place is given to French literature rooted in France in this new configuration?

    In order to answer these questions, this study focuses on the journalistic reception of literatures in the French language in Sweden between 2005 and 2014. Situated in a semi-peripheral zone, Sweden is nevertheless an agency for global literary legitimation with a pronounced interest in African francophone literature. The findings localize this increased interest to 2006, where the critics particularly attempt to underscore an image of marginality, as well as of hybrid identity when commenting on this type of francophone literature. Sweden perceives this literature in an intercultural context, where France in most cases merges with the world, as if there was a need to recognize a different and new francomonde [franco-world] literature.

    L’importation de la littérature française: un triple détournement de capital: Réflexions à partir d’une étude de réception journalistique en Suède2016In: Moderna Språk, ISSN 2000-3560, 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.

    Juhani Aho i Sverige: Pressmottagande och Nobelpriskandidatur2008Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The novelist and short-story writer Juhani Aho (1861–1921) was highly renowned in Finland at the turn of the 20th century  and was often considered an author of national importance during the early 1900s. A significant part of his literary works were translated into Swedish, and the Swedish newspapers quite frequently published reviews of these translations. The first part of this study deals with the views expressed by critics in Swedish newspapers from the 1880s to the time of Aho’s death at the beginning of the 1920s. Analysis of these reviews shows that works depicting Finns in rural settings as poor, quiet and hardworking were highly acclaimed, whereas urban stories with a cosmopolitan content were judged to be strange, surprising and not very good literature. The critics’ views of Aho’s literary world correspond to old Swedish sentiments of Finland and its people.

    As documents from the archives of the Swedish Academy reveal, Aho was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature several times during the early years of the 1900s. It was mainly learned societies and academic institutions in Finland who sent proposals in Aho’s favour to the Academy, although some members of the Swedish Academy also supported Aho’s candidacy. There were several reasons why his candidacy never came close to being seriously considered. Firstly, during the earlier years Aho had to compete with literature from the entire western world as well as its most renowned representatives. Secondly, during the Great War the Nobel Committee advocated a strictly neutral literary policy, which resulted in the exclusion of nominees such as Aho, who had earlier spoken out against Russian oppression in Finland. To this can be added the idiosyncratic views held by leading Academy members concerning the status of Finnish as a cultural language.

    Alien Places in Late Soviet Science Fiction: The "Unexpected Encounters" of Arkady and Boris Strugatsky as Novels and Films2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation deals with how science fiction reflects the shift in cultural paradigms that occurred in the Soviet Union between the 1960s and the 1970s. Interest was displaced from the rational to the irrational, from a scientific-technologically oriented optimism about the future to art, religion, philosophy and metaphysics. Concomitant with this shift in interests was a shift from the future to an elsewhere or, reformulated in exclusively spatial terms, from utopia to heterotopia.

    The dissertation consists of an analysis of three novels by the Strugatsky brothers (Arkady, 1925-1991 and Boris 1933-2012): Inspector Glebsky’s Puzzle (Otel’ U pogibšego al’pinista, 1970), The Kid (Malyš, 1971) and Roadside Picnic (Piknik na obočine, 1972) and two films Dead Mountaineer’s Hotel (Hukkunud alpinisti hotell/ Otel’ U pogibšego al’pinista, Kromanov, 1979) and Stalker (Tarkovsky, 1980).  The three novels, allegedly treatments of the theme of contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence, were intended to be published in one volume with the title Unexpected Encounters. The films are based on two of the novels.

    In the novels an earlier Marxist utopia has given way to a considerably more ambiguous heterotopia, largely envisioned as versions of the West. An indication of how the authors here seem to look back towards history rather than forward towards the future is to be found in the persistent strain of literary Gothic that runs through the novels. This particular trait resurfaces in the films as well. 

    The films reflect how tendencies only discernable in the novels have developed throughout the decade, such as the budding Soviet consumer culture and the religious sensibilities of the artistic community.

    A Divine King Excommunicated: Legitimisation of Power and Ideology of Kingship in Sverris Saga

    This article investigates how Sverrir Sigurðarson, ruler of Norway between 1177 and 1202, is ideologically legitimised as king in the biography Sverris saga. In previous research, the perception that Sverrir is portrayed as a Christian rex iustus has competed with the perception that Sverrir is depicted as a traditional Old Norse warrior king, who gains his legitimacy through his military successes. This article demonstrates that the rex iustus idea is central in the saga when it comes to legitimising Sverrir, and that his seizure of power is also placed in the salvation-historical worldview of the time. Fully in accordance with the way contemporary continental European kings legitimised their claims to power, Sverrir’s royal power is justified in the saga through a combination of the notion that God has chosen Sverrir as king and the notion of a line of succession to the throne through paternal blood ties. The article also demonstrates that the saga, like the polemic pamphlet A Speech against the Bishops (Ett tal mot biskoparna), propagates against the perception that the Church is above the royal power and dismisses the Church’s excommunication of Sverrir as unjust and invalid.

    Lev Tolstoj anländer alltid till Astapovo.: Ett semiotiskt perspektiv på adaption.2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här studien är en analys av hur den ryske författaren Lev Tolstoj, genom kanonisering och uppkomsten av vissa mönster av texter, bilder och representationer, reduceras till tecken, symbol och ikon, samt hur denna symbol och ikon behandlas i två filmadaptioner - Leo Tolstoj (Lev Tolstoj 1985) respektive The Last Station (2009). Den teoretiska utgångspunkten är i huvudsak Jurij Lotmans kultursemiotiska teori och i synnerhet hans definitioner av termerna tecken, symbol och ikon. Uppsatsen visar, utifrån denna semiotiska teori, hur adaptionerna väljer att representera en viss bild av Tolstoj som en reduktiv strategi för att kunna skapa ett narrativ som måste infoga och välja bland en komplex uppsättning av bilder och självbilder, representationer och självrepresentationer.

    Resultaten av analysen visar hur bilden av Lev Tolstoj i Lev Tolstoj fokuserar på bilden av författaren som å ena sidan starjets, som en vis äldre man, som människor uppsöker, och å andra sidan som författare. Hans verk ges följaktligen stort utrymme och det refereras ofta till hans verk, och då i synnerhet till den senare produktionen av filosofiskt och religiöst material. Vad gäller de ikoniska elementen är det bilden av den gamle mannen i de enkla bondekläderna från de sista åren av hans liv som dominerar. Överlag är filmen tydligt centrerad just runt Tolstoj och dessa aspekter och bilder av honom. I stark kontrast står däremot The Last Station som över huvud inte utgår från författaren utan betraktar honom utifrån övriga figurer. Även om de ikoniska elementen här i stort överlappar med den ryska adaptionen är det en betydligt förenklad version av Tolstoj som förekommer - det stora geniet. Den förenklade bilden möjliggör ett fokus på personen Tolstoj, hans privata sidor, förhållandet till människorna runtomkring, utan att behöva i detalj diskutera hans texter eller deras innehåll.

    Slutligen visar studien på fördelen med att röra sig bort från ett ensidigt och snävt perspektiv på adaption som ett förhållande mellan två texter från två olika semiotiska system, det vill säga från två olika medier. I stället använder studien ett semiotiskt metaspråk för att diskutera adaption och visar på möjliga sätt att diskutera hur texter och bilder tar en viss former då de traderas mellan och inom semiotiska system, hur de omvandlas och omförhandlas, från då till nu och vidare i nya texter.

    Systerskap i Elin Wägners Pennskaftet: En studie av systerskapet och kvinnlig solidaritet, med återkoppling till Norrtullsligan2014Student paper other, 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I Pennskaftet utformar kvinnorna ett systerskap när de känner sig solidariska med sitt kön. Utan systerskap skulle inte rösträttsarbetet kunna utföras. Flera av kvinnorna i romanen visar en solidaritet både till de kvinnor som följer normer och de som är normbrytande. I frågan om kvinnlig rösträtt uppstår ett ”vi” och ”de andra”, vilket medför en begränsning för systerskapet. Detta sker även inom familjen och när kvinnor från skilda samhällsklasser möts. Kvinnosolidariteten blir lidande när kvinnor från olika samhällsklasser har svårt att känna en samhörighet. Bevisligen finns en frånvaro av systerskap i Pennskaftet. Men när de två huvudkaraktärerna, Pennskaftet och Cecilia, interagerar blir en kvinnlig solidaritet ytterst framträdande. I Pennskaftet utbildas några män till att lära sig mer om kvinnor och rösträtten och de blir en tillgång.

    Till skillnad från Norrtullsligan där männen ses som det största hindret för kvinnor att uppnå riktig systerskap. Kvinnorna sviker varandra för männens skull och systerskapet blir bortvalt då kvinnorna hellre fokuserar på att träffa en make. I Norrtullsligan är det frånvaron av systerskapet som är som mest påtagligt, vilket medför begränsningar för kvinnorna i romanen. Trots att kvinnorna möts i en gemenskap med sin dåliga ekonomi, och på grund av det anordnar en strejk, så misslyckas strejken då några av kvinnorna bestämmer sig för att dra sig ur och inte ställa upp för sina medsystrar. Frånvaron av systerskapet är markant. För systerskapet i Pennskaftet är männen till kvinnornas fördel, medan männen i Norrtullsligan blir en nackdel.

    "We accept the love we think we deserve": En komparativ studie av romanen och filmen The Perks of Being a Wallflower2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats undersöker hur brevromanen The Perks of Being a Wallflower (1999) av Stephen Chbosky transformeras och blir film. Vidare studeras brevromansgenren och berättartekniken i de två medierna och detta görs genom ett genusperspektiv. Det huvudsakliga målet för min undersökning är att genomföra en komparativ studie mellan roman och film. I undersökningen analyseras exempel ur romanen och filmen som har ett samband till uppsatsens inriktningar; brevromansgenren och berättartekniken.

    Undersökningen visar att romanen The Perks of Being a Wallflower är lik dagboksromanen i dess uppyggnad och att romanen innehåller typiska ungdomslitterära motiv. Vidare visar berättartekniken att de mest nyttjade medlen är jagberättandet och tillbakablickar i romanen såväl som i filmen. En annan berättarteknik som används är narrativ repetition som förekommer i olika former både i romanen och filmen. Karaktärerna i The Perks of Being a Wallflower följer de normer och konventioner som skapar respektive kön, förutom huvudkaraktären Charlie som är könsöverskridande. Avslutningsvis visar undersökningen att huvudkaraktären Charlie gestaltas subjektivt då det är Charlie som även är berättarjaget och han kan inte se sig själv från ett utomstående perspektiv.

    Önskan om att vara normal: en analys av funktionsvariation i romanerna Jag vill ha ett liv och Udda2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats analyserar funktionsvariation i två svenska romaner: Jag vill ha ett liv av Sofia Hedman och Udda av Sara Lövestam. Uppsatsen utgår ifrån teorier inom Disability Studies och Feminist Disability Studies. I denna uppsats diskuteras främst Cripteorier och Queerteorier utformade av Robert McRuer och de har varit av stor betydelse för att belysa dikotomin normalitet/ avvikelse och kropparnas funktionella värde. För studien anläggs ett genusperspektiv och det tillsammans med diskussionen om hur funktionsvariationer skildras visar hur kvinnor och funktionsvarierade tillskrivs samma stereotypiska egenskaper. Feminist- och queerforskaren Rosemarie Garland-Thomson har skrivit flera givande texter om hur funktionsvariationsforskning och feministteorier integrerar och de texterna används delvis i diskussioner om hur funktionsvarierade och kvinnor tilldelas specifika roller. Studierna visar hur funktionsvariation skildras på stereotypiska sätt och framförallt hur det framträder genom porträtten av romanernas huvudkaraktärer Katti och Paula. Analysen fokuserar på och använder sig av specifika passager i respektive roman för att ge en djupare förståelse för och diskutera hur funktionsvariationer framställs. När uppsatsen analyserar romanen och karaktärerna används begrepp som normalitet, stigmatisering, representation och social konstruktion. Studien belyser hur huvudkaraktärerna tar avstånd från normerna och kritiserar det samhälle och den kultur som formar dem. Avslutningsvis visar studien hur huvudkaraktärerna i respektive roman utmanar de normer som de är exkluderade ifrån.

    Literary perspectives on the case for Beowulf's rowing adventure with Breca2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Tradition in the study of Beowulf has held that the discussion between Beowulf and Unferth regarding Beowulf’s victory over Breca concerns a swimming competition. However, some scholars have suggested that this section refers to a rowing or sailing adventure, due to some ambiguity in the language of the passage. Linguistic evidence for the rowing interpretation, mostly from the 1970's, is well-known but has been neither accepted by editors nor effectively countered by subsequent scholarship. By applying literary, dramatic and cultural theoretical principles to the two alternative explanations it became apparent that the rowing interpretation of the Breca episode is more appropriate within the literary and social context of Beowulf. This more-or-less ambiguous episode has been modified to fit Beowulf into a folk-tale ethos in which scholarship no longer admits it has a place. This nineteenth-century interpretation has now passed out of favour, but recent scholarship has remained committed a traditional interpretation of the Breca episode which now is clearly incongruous.

    Avatars of Latin Schooling: Recycling Memories of Latin Classes in Western Poetry: Five Paradigmatic Cases2019In: Journal of Latin Cosmopolitanism and European Literatures, E-ISSN 2593-743X, no 1, p. 17-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper tries to elucidate the significance of Latin schooling for the production of poetry by lining up five typical cases of recycling Roman texts, from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. The French poet Baudri de Bourgueil (ca 1050–1130) rewrote Ovid’s Heroides 16–17 within a cultural context, characteristic of the incipient “Ovidian age,” aetas ovidiana, based on classroom practices such as paraphrase, accessus and glosses, presupposing a sense of historical continuity – or translatio studii et imperii – from Antiquity down to the twelfth century. In his great work, The Comedy, the Florentine Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) reused Ovid in a quite different way, representative of the allegorizing tendencies noticeable in Italy and France towards the end of the Ovidian age. The Early Modern motto ad fontes, on the other hand, presupposed a breach between ancient and present times, none the less possible (and surely commendable) to bridge by means of imitation within the framework of studia humanitatis and a new philological culture, made possible by the printing press. This cultural paradigm shift is illustrated by a look at a famous sonnet by the Spanish Golden Age poet Francisco de Quevedo (1580–1645). Finally, our modern and postmodern era, characterized by an ambivalent attitude to the classical heritage, is represented by the Anglo-American poet T.S. Eliot (1888–1965) and his Swedish successor Hjalmar Gullberg (1898–1961), both of whom remembered their Latin classes in their mature poetry, marked by irony, distance and, probably, nostalgia.
