    Southern Africa: An Introduction2021In: A Companion to African Literatures / [ed] Olakunle George, Hoboken: Wiley-Blackwell, 2021, p. 197-212Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Set during the devastating war in Mozambique in the 1980s, Lília Momplé's short novel Neighbours tells the story of some few individuals in the capital of Maputo. Neighbours is as good a place as any to begin exploring the notion of “Southern Africa.” A distinctive aspect of Southern African literature from the twentieth century is what Ranka Primorac has identified as a “frontline” imaginary. The discussion is guided by the assumption that Southern African literature is formed by and to some extent formative of the embattled modernities of the subcontinent. In this chapter, special attention is paid to how verbal art is conditioned by its main enabling media technologies, orality and print, but without assuming a teleological progression from one to the other, or rigid boundaries between them.

    Tayeb Salih, Sol Plaatje and the Trajectories of World Literature2015In: The Cambridge Journal of Postcolonial Literary Inquiry, ISSN 2052-2614, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 253-260Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A crucial theoretical question in world literature studies concerns the dual trajectories of extroversion and introversion, and how they relate to or even are predicated on each other. By discussing the examples of Tayeb Salih and, in particular, Sol Plaatje, this article tries to demonstrate that although the current turn towardmore “introverted” literary studies can be seen as justifiably critical of single-system modes of world literature theory, an attentiveness to the combined and contradictory trajectories of extroversion and introversion will enable a more situated and localized form of world literature studies that nonetheless evades the risk of reifying nationalor linguistic provenance. This also requires a stronger conception of reception history not as a transparent vessel for the literary object, but as an active agent in rendering specific texts or authorships readable as introverted or extroverted.

    Abstract [en]

    Whither literature in an age of semiotic overload? In a discussion of J.M. Coetzee’s El Polaco, Mohamed Mbougar Sarr’s La plus secrète mémoire des hommes and Zoë Wicomb’s Still Life, this essay suggests that a dialectic between textual evasion and the intertextual productivity of commentary, translation and generative AI might show the way forward.

    Uys Krige and the South African Afterlife of Fernando Pessoa2015In: Pessoa Plural, ISSN 2212-4179, no 8, p. 265-281Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Three letters to Hubert Jennings—two of them from the Afrikaans poet Uys Krige, one from the French poet Armand Guibert—prompt a reconsideration of the South African reception of Fernando Pessoa. Although this reception was and is clearly limited, Krige emerges here as a key individual connecting Jennings, Guibert, Roy Campbell and—by extension—Fernando Pessoa in a transnational literary network structured according to the logic of what Pascale Casonova has called “the world republic of letters” (La République Mondiale des Lettres). As such, however, this historical network has limited purchase on the contemporary concerns of South African literature. The letters alert us, thereby, not just to the inherent transnationalism of South African literature, but also to largely forgotten and, to some extent, compromised aspects of South African literary history.

    World Literatures: Exploring the Cosmopolitan-Vernacular Exchange2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Placing itself within the burgeoning field of world literary studies, the organising principle of this book is that of an open-ended dynamic, namely the cosmopolitan-vernacular exchange.

    As an adaptable comparative fulcrum for literary studies, the notion of the cosmopolitan-vernacular exchange accommodates also highly localised literatures. In this way, it redresses what has repeatedly been identified as a weakness of the world literature paradigm, namely the one-sided focus on literature that accumulates global prestige or makes it on the Euro-American book market.

    How has the vernacular been defined historically? How is it inflected by gender? How are the poles of the vernacular and the cosmopolitan distributed spatially or stylistically in literary narratives? How are cosmopolitan domains of literature incorporated in local literary communities? What are the effects of translation on the encoding of vernacular and cosmopolitan values?

    Ranging across a dozen languages and literature from five continents, these are some of the questions that the contributions attempt to address.

    Handbook of Anglophone World Literatures2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Handbook of Anglophone World Literatures is the first globally comprehensive attempt to chart the rich field of world literatures in English. Part I navigates different usages of the term?world literature? from an historical point of view. Part II discusses a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to world literature. This is also where the handbook's conceptualisation of Anglophone world literatures in the plural is developed and interrogated in juxtaposition with proximate fields of inquiry such as postcolonialism, translation studies, memory studies and environmental humanities. Part III charts sociological approaches to Anglophone world literatures, considering their commodification, distribution, translation and canonisation on the international book market. Part IV, finally, is dedicated to the geographies of Anglophone world literatures and provides sample interpretations of literary texts written in English.

    Die Endlichkeit des Seins: Malte Perssons Untergangslyrik2023Other (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Der Untergang der Menschheit ist ein Topos mit langer Tradition in der europäischen Literatur, Philosophie und Mythologie. Als Reaktion auf drohende oder tatsächliche Katastrophen ist er immer wieder zum Einsatz gekommen, nicht zuletzt in der Lyrik. In die Reihe von UntergangslyrikerInnen ordnete sich der schwedische Schriftsteller Malte Persson 2021 mit seinem Gedichtband Undergången ("Der Untergang") ein. Dem mittlerweile in Berlin lebenden Schriftsteller gehe es dabei um einen beliebigen künftigen Untergang, der die Menschheit mit Sicherheit früher oder später ausradieren wird, und nicht unbedingt um die gegenwärtige Klimakrise. Diese Krise habe eher den Anlass geboten, über eine Erde ohne Menschen nachzudenken.

    Auf der Webseite Neues Lesen Skandinavien, die von SkandinavistInnen im deutsschsprachigen Raum betrieben wird, rezensiert Hanna Henryson den neuen Band von Malte Persson mit besonderem Fokus auf dem Zusammenspiel zwischen der Untergangsthematik und der strengen, klassischen Form der Gedichte.

    Tipping Points: Gentrification and Urban Possibility2021In: Literatures of Urban Possibility / [ed] Salmela; Markku; Ameel; Lieven; Finch; Jason, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2021, p. 165-189Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores literary representations of the possible effects of gentrification on urban life. By relating important results of gentrification research from sociology, human geography and economics to a reading of three novels set in Berlin, a certain polarisation comes into view. On a structural level, gentrification recasts social and spatial relations in a number of ways and potentially creates large values for cities and financial actors, which is illustrated by a potent real estate investor in one of the novels. In contrast, gentrification is represented as unsettling or even destructive for characters who lack substantial capital resources, significantly limiting the possibilities open to them. However, the complexity of the depicted gentrification processes evokes an ambiguity that is reflected by the novels’ open endings.

    La autorrealización en el Camino de Santiago: Un análisis diacrónico sobre la representación de la autorrealización y el camino como símbolo de la vida en la poesía sobre el Camino a Santiago de Compostela2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    En el presente estudio realizaré un análisis diacrónico de la representación de la autorrealización en cinco poemas seleccionados sobre el Camino de Santiago. Los poemas elegidos son los siguientes, en orden cronológico: “Don Gaiferos de Mormaltán” de un autor anónimo, “A Santiago” de Fray Luis de León, “Camino blanco, viejo camino” de Rosalía de Castro, “Peregrino” de Luis Cernuda y “El Camino de Santiago” de Francisco Vaquerizo. Los textos mencionados representan poemas que han sido escritos desde la Edad Media hasta la actualidad. El presente análisis se concentra en el tema de la autorrealización y cómo se representa en la poesía del Camino de Santiago, y, además, analizamos el camino como símbolo de la vida. El análisis se realiza en cinco secciones y cada una corresponde a un poema seleccionado. Cada sección se divide entre los dos temas esenciales: la representación de la autorrealización y el camino como símbolo de la vida. Por último, hacemos un breve análisis comparativo entre los poemas. El análisis se realiza a través de la teoría de isotopías de Greimas (1966) y unos conceptos poéticos de Bousoño (1962) y Lapesa (1962). Además, las reflexiones se basan en el análisis en los conceptos de Kurt Goldstein (1940) y Abraham Maslow (1943) sobre el concepto de la autorrealización. Por lo tanto, la teoría isotópica funciona como una herramienta retórica para buscar las palabras de cada poema que tiene el mismo sentido semántico en común. Los resultados del análisis muestran un fuerte deseo de seguir adelante, no volver atrás y tener una creencia firme religiosa o espiritual para continuar el camino. Además, es posible percibir el camino como un símbolo de la vida, dado que hay un movimiento con un comienzo y un fin en la mayoría de los textos. Los resultados igualmente indican que hay ciertos aspectos similares en relación con la autorrealización tanto el poema de la Edad Media como en el poema del siglo XXI.

    The Waste Land: an early example of world literature: the relation between T.S Eliot's The Waste Land and world literature2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    T.S Eliot’s The Waste Land is considered as one the most important and readily identifiable poems in the English language and among the modernist texts. It consists of many different allusions, historical, cultural and literary references and myths from various literary sources and therefore it provides the reader with a wide view of some of the best canonical literary masterpieces. Different aspects of the poem are examined throughout this paper, such as the notion of nationalism, the nature of allusions and cultural references such as myths, and the use of foreign languages. Several theoretical frameworks have been used for analysis such as David Damrosch’s close reading method, the work of Edward Said on Orientalism, James Phelan’s theory about the narrative, and the Neogrammarians’ theory, the tree of language.

    This thesis traces how the poem was written as a Weltanschauung and a reaction to the condition of the post-war world where everything was shattered and off balance. The Waste Land has been viewed as a Eurocentric work and a part of European literary canon since the majority of its allusions and references are European but the aim of this paper is to examine the multicultural, multinational and multilingual characteristics of the poem to argue that it is an early example of the world literature. The paper develops this argument by deploying textual analysis and tracing the origin of its references to foreign and non-European cultural, national, and lingual contexts.

    A Proactive Method Against Cyberbullying by using William Golding’s Lord of the flies2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Owing to recent trends in cyberbullying, online antagonism and abuse could not only reinforce but also normalize antagonism between students in schools. Cyberbullying is a new form of bullying which ‘involves the use of information and communications technology … to intimidate, harass, victimize, or bully an individual or a group of individuals’ (Bhat 2008, 53). This issue is relevant for young adults as they spend extensive hours on social media. Teaching critical thinking could prove to be beneficial for raising awareness regarding the social injustices occurring on social media. When incorporating critical thinking in education, many scholars suggest the importance of using literature. A fitting literary genre for the current social issue revolving around bullying on social media is dystopias. In fact, dystopias are on the rise in terms of popularity among young adults (Ames 2013). This thesis argues for the usage of a classic dystopian literary novel as one way for addressing the current societal issue of cyberbullying. Through a thematic analysis of the novel Lord of the flies, I propose a proactive method against cyberbullying. By deploying the critical thinking model developed by Bobkina and Stefanova, Lord of the flies can be seen to be a fruitful instrument for creating space for reflection and discussion about cyberbullying.

    Abstract [da]

    Denne artikel belyser undfangelses- og fødselsparadigmet i forhold til forskellige videnskabelige felter (antropologi, biologi, filosofi og æstetik) og viser, på hvilken måde generative kategorier er bestemmende for Herman Bangs poetik i Det hvide Hus (1898) og Det graa Hus (1901). I husenes æstetiske rum mødes den dyriske natur- og den metafysiske kultursfære og gestaltes i teksternes hovedfigurer. Bedste/Ur-Faderen (undfangelse) og moderen (fødsel) indsætter sig selv som familieoverhoveder hinsides det driftsstyrede lystprincip og præsenterer deres sublime modbilleder: imens bedstefaderen tegner erkendelsens og det erkendtes filosofiske diskurs gennem øjets medium, legemliggør moderen kunstens og musikkens æstetiske diskurs ved hjælp af stemmens medium – begge modforestillinger til undfangelse og fødsel.

    Hervorbringungen: zur Poetik des Anfangens um 19002014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Hervorbringungen beleuchtet eines der wesentlichsten Momente jedes Schöpferischen, nämlich die unhintergehbare Nachträglichkeit alles Geschaffenen. Am Anfang steht die Machtlosigkeit des modernen Schaffenden, der im Wettlauf um den originären Hervorbringungsakt zum ewigen Zweiten verdammt bleibt. Anders, so die These dieses Buches, verfährt die Literatur mit dem Problem des Anfangens, indem sie es unzählige Male umschreibt und so auf andere Weise neu und gründlich zu Ende erzählt.

    Die vergleichende Studie setzt sich zunächst methodisch-systematisch mit den philosophischen und literarischen Semantiken des Schöpferischen, der Fabrikation und des Genealogischen um 1900 auseinander. Anhand einer exemplarischen Lektüre dreier Texte der Jahrhundertwende (Hamsun, Strindberg, Rilke) leistet die Untersuchung einen literaturwissenschaftlichen Beitrag zur Beschreibung des ›Anfangsproblems‹ der Moderne.

    Abstract [de]

    Vorliegender Artikel widmet sich der literarisch höchst produktiven Nahtstelle zwischen privatem Wohnen und öffentlichem Werken und Wirken in zwei Prosatexten von Kafka und Rilke: Ausgehend von Kafkas schmaler Nachbar-Erzählung entpuppt sich die (Denk-)Figur des Nachbarn als vielschichtige Mittlerfigur zwischen aneinandergrenzenden Räumen – insbesondere zwischen zeichenhaft eingerichteten Nachbarwohnungen. Die Verstörung, die von jenem unheimlichen ‚Wesen des Wohnens‛ ausgeht, wird in Kafkas Text anhand eines raffinierten Spiels mit Zahlen und Verdoppelungen gestaltet. Auch in Rilkes Aufzeichnungen des Malte Laurids Brigge wandelt sich die Gestalt des Nahewohners zunächst zum biblischen Nächsten, bevor sie sukzessive in eine subtile Spielart des parasitären Störenfrieds umschlägt. Dieser erweist sich nicht bloß als Erreger (des privaten Ärgernisses), der das Gleichgewicht von wohnen und arbeiten aufs Empfindlichste beeinträchtigt, sondern gleichermaßen auch als wirksames Störmoment in der Textur der literarischen Texte.

    In 2016, “post-truth” was chosen as the word of the year by the Oxford Dictionaries. This is a concept that has come to be associated with a type of political discourse in which objective facts are less important than factual inaccuracies which appeal to emotion to influence people’s attitudes. Due to this recent increase in post-truth politics, critical thinking becomes an important skill to master. Yet, studies have suggested that students often lack the necessary skills for critical thinking. One way of approaching this problem is through the reading of literature. This essay specifically argues that George Orwell’s 1984 provides teachers with an excellent opportunity to develop critical thinking skills among upper secondary English as a foreign language (EFL) students, with the novel as an excellent platform to also promote student reflection on current post-truth politics. In order to work with 1984 to foster critical thinking, this essay utilizes a literature-based, pedagogical model developed by Bobkina and Stefanova that draws inspiration from elements of reader-response theory and critical literacy pedagogy (CLP). To show how 1984 can be used to discuss current post-truth politics, a thematic analysis was performed where central themes and concepts from the novel, such as doublethink, Newspeak and telescreens, were compared to current trends in post-truth politics. The analysis itself was structured around the following themes: the distortion of truth for political gains, the use of language as an instrument of political power and the use of technology to spread misinformation. Following the analysis, a lesson project based on Bobkina and Stefanova’s four-stage model was constructed, focusing on different pre-, while- and post-reading activities aimed at making the students develop their critical thinking skills as well as their awareness of the three themes mentioned above. While this approach is deemed suitable for working with 1984 to discuss post-truth politics, a suggestion for further research would be to use Bobkina and Stefanova’s model together with more contemporary dystopian novels in order to discuss other topics that are more relatable to young adults, e.g. identity issues and social stratification.

    Cosmopolitanism as an Antidote to American Nationalism in Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores how The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid offers a potential cosmopolitan antidote to the myths of American nationalism which allow the United States to pursue self-interested policies abroad that consequently deny the humanity of those who are seen as commodities or collateral damage. Using Richard T. Hughes’s insights into the myths that underlie American nationalism, and Thomas Bender and Anthony Kwame Appiah’s theories of cosmopolitanism in practice, I will show how cosmopolitanism can be an alternative to exclusive American nationalism defined by capitalism. I demonstrate how the protagonist Changez uses storytelling to permeate boundaries of nationalism that isolate the United States from the world through a process of osmosis by allowing an American to know the Other and himself, thereby eliciting a way of being in the world that allows for more flexible and multiple loyalties.

    "Cualquier feminista nos haría polvo con dos frases": La representación del amor en la novela Algo tan parecido al amor de Carmen Amoraga2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [es]

    En este trabajo analizamos la representación del amor en Algo tan parecido al amor (2007), una novela española escrita por Carmen Amoraga. El análisis se realiza en tres partes, primero, se hace un recorrido por los distintos aspectos de las relaciones amorosas representados en la novela. Después, tomando como punto de partida la estructura de la narración, investigamos cómo se relaciona con los rasgos de la novela sentimental, basándonos en las teorías de Ciplijauskaité (2004). Por último, nos interesamos por los aspectos feministas de la novela.

    En Algo tan parecido al amor el amor se representa de varias maneras. El matrimonio se presenta como una institución social importante, los adulterios son el eje de la narración, pero no se hacen de manera transgresora. Se puede apreciar una crítica a la solución de la novela rosa tradicional en el sentido de que la novela cuestiona el vínculo entre el amor y la felicidad.

    Existe una relación contradictoria con respecto a los rasgos de la novela sentimental. La novela no requiere la colaboración de un lector activo. Detrás de las tres narradoras homodiegéticas hay una voz narradora omnisciente que dirige el centro de atención, un rasgo de la novela sentimental, pero también se hace uso de la estrategia anti-sentimental de la ironía.

    La dicotomía entre la mujer casada y la amante es la más tratada en la novela, no la que hay entre la mujer y el hombre de la pareja. No obstante, las mujeres y los hombres se relacionan de manera algo diferente con el tema, siendo la sexualidad y la reproducción los campos donde las diferencias se hacen más notables. El hecho de que la novela tenga como objetivo entretener más que llevar a cabo un cambio social contribuye a la interpretación de su falta de valores feministas.

    This Book is Too Difficult to Read: An analysis of April Lindner’s young adult novel Catherine as an aid for illuminating themes in Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As young adult literature grows, the genre sparks controversy, specifically in regards to using the genre in the curriculum as a teaching tool. Many scholars and teachers believe that young adult literature is for pleasure and not learning. On the other hand, some persons think that many students could learn from young adult literature as they find Western Canonical literature difficult to read. The consequence of finding Western Canonical texts difficult to understand is that students then, rather than attempt to analyze and read the piece, go online and read ready-made analyses which deny their critical thinking. Many teachers believe that using a young adult novel, which encompasses similar themes, will solve this disinterest from students. My paper will merge these two ideas together; that retold young adult novels should be used in the classroom in the presence of a Western canonical text.

                For my research, I have made use of the Western Canonical text Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë and the retold young adult novel in question is Catherine by April Lindner. My research will reveal that the reading of a retold story, alongside the canonical text, is useful in academia as a teaching tool as they may show a different perspective to ones already present and aid students in the reading of primary themes. To illustrate how the retold version assists in the comprehension of main ideas I will, through New Criticism, investigate what kind of impact the retelling has on plot, setting, and character.

    The "New Man" and Male Homosocial Desire in Late Nineteenth-century Polish Novels2014In: Mundo Eslavo: Journal of Slavic Studies, ISSN 1579-8372, E-ISSN 2255-517X, no 13, p. 129-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study of nineteenth-century Polish novels offers an exploration of cultural constructions of masculinities within the upper class and evolving middle-classes towards the end of century. It explores different social contexts and the ways in which literature shapes and interrogates men’s social roles and codes of behavior. The traditional rules and codes of the upper class are challenged by “New Men”, such as the parvenu Stanisław Wokulski, and their attempts to assimilate into the world of the class to which they do not belong. An examination of these new protagonists also precipitates a deeper understanding of hierarchical structures in public and semi-public spheres, friendships and rivalry between and among men as well as their attitudes towards women in general. The aim of this article is to present briefly the story of Wokulski’s unsuccessful homosocial climbing and to examine the ambiguities of his character from a gender perspective.

    Transculturalism and Modernism in Leung Ping-kwan ́s writing2021Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    More than 45 million ethnic Chinese are settled outside China and about 20 % among them live in America. The aim of this study is to investigate how a Hong Kong writer in the diaspora has been influenced in his writing in a transcultural and modernist direction and in what way translation can be a part of transculturalism. In this study, the author 梁秉鈞 Leung Ping-kwan (1949-2013) has been selected as an example of this. The study is based on prose and lyrical texts by him. Studies of Chinese in the diaspora have long been neglected, but in recent years, Chinese American academics have begun research into Chinese diaspora literature from a transcultural perspective. This study aims to contribute to transcultural literary studies. In the study of Leung Ping-kwan ́s texts, a comparative literary analysis is used which is based on theories of identity and transculturalism. I argue that Leung Ping-kwan's writing is characterized by transcultural and modernist features.

    Renewed Shall Be Blade That Was Broken: Tolkien, Modernity and Fascist Utopia2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis consists of a close reading and meta-analysis of themes and patterns in the works that comprise the fictional world of “Middle-Earth” created by J. R. R. Tolkien, in specific relation to the culturally prevalent views of the decadence of modernity and the ideological dynamics of fascism. This thesis explores the ideological dynamics of the fictional world constructed by Tolkien’s texts, and argues that his work contains demonstrable similarities to the ideological dynamics of fascism in its response to the existential challenges of modernity. To clarify, this thesis does not argue that Tolkien’s fiction can be read as “fascist,” tout court, but rather to give a comprehensive outline of how the fictional world created within his texts relate to discourses critical of modernisation and to what extent the aesthetic and ideological dynamics of this world present what I will call a fascist utopia. Tolkien’s work will be approached using the arguments and theories from canonical texts and authors regarding discourses on modernity, including works from the fields of philosophy (Nietzsche), political economy (Marx and Engels), literary studies, sociology (Durkheim, Weber and Simmel) and psychology (Freud). Alongside this I will use relevant studies of fascism to analyse how Tolkien fits within and relates to the aforementioned discourses. I assert the findings that Tolkien creates a world which, in its attempts to renew the values of the past through the presentation of mythology, rootedness, community, agrarianism and hierarchy, demonstrates a semi-fascistic utopia. This is not to cast aspersions or make claims about Tolkien’s creative intentions or personal ideology, rather an observation as to the content and themes of his fictional world. I will argue this fictional world aligns with fascist concepts of identity, nationhood, heritage, mythology and renewal; however, at the same time finding it non-aligned with the central thrust of fascism, in its overt condemnation of industrialism and technology. This contradictory combination produces a fictional world which presents the renewal of what Roger Griffin terms the “shields against ontological terror” (75) now lost or delegitimised in the modern age.

    Teaching democracy by examining terrorism: Using V for Vendetta in a classroom context2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish National Agency for Education, Skolverket, states that English students in upper secondary school need to learn about “[…] living conditions, social issues and cultural phenomena in different contexts […]”. Further, teaching human rights, values and democracy is critical, as it is a basic principle in Swedish education. To do so, the primary text investigated in this thesis is the graphic novel V for Vendetta, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd, first published in its entirety 1988.

    V for Vendetta is a dystopian story, depicting a totalitarian government, and the main protagonist, V, trying to upset the regime with extreme actions. The main purpose of this thesis is to highlight how V for Vendetta can be used to explore democracy in a school context. As it is an open text, the students will read and analyse many situations of social issues and ambiguous morality, helping them understand democracy on a deeper plane. The students are to address the question: “Is V a terrorist or not?” throughout their readings. To achieve this, they must understand relevant notions and situations. Thus, a close reading of several excerpts from the story will be presented, to highlight relevant things to consider.

    The close reading shows that there are many themes, ideologies and questions of morality presented throughout the text. With the combination of V’s actions, a solid ground for the students to answer whether they perceive V as a terrorist or not is set. Although it is hard to categorise V, the ideas presented in the text helps students understand democracy, by first understanding the threats to democracy.

    From Jubilus to learned Exegesis: new liturgical poetry in twelfth-century Nevers2009In: Sapientia et eloquentia: meaning and function in liturgical  poetry, music, drama and biblical commentary in the Middle Ages / [ed] Gunilla Iversen and Nicolas Bell, Turnhout: Brepols , 2009, p. 203-258Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In a number of interrelated case studies of earlier unexplored poetic and musical material dating from the ninth through the thirteenth centuries, the scholars explore and shed further light on changes in functions and forms in poetry, particularly in liturgical poetry, and in medieval interpretations of this poetry and music.

    Although the earlier part of the twelfth century remains the focus of the book, this should not be taken as a clearly delimited period. Many of the phenomena dealt with had roots in earlier times and did by no means end with the 'high Middle Ages'.

    In several articles, the poetical heritage of the Carolingian environment of the palace school of Charles the Bald is examined – a poetic before the poetics, the place and function of music in the liturgical context, to name but two subjects that are treated. With the twelfth century, the ideas developed during the preceding centuries finally took a more institutional shape; in the present book, we see this phenomenon represented in Peter Abelards hymnary for the Paraclete, ritual representations and liturgical drama, in commentaries to biblical poetry, such as the Glossa ordinaria to Lamentations. Finally, the interpretation and understanding of musical texts,  exemplified by the view on Boethius’ De Musica and the new literary genre represented by commentaries to Sequences  in the later middle ages give the volume a final touch and tie its end again to the beginning.

    Abstract [en]

    In a number of interrelated case studies of earlier unexplored poetic and musical material dating from the ninth through the thirteenth centuries, the scholars explore and shed further light on changes in functions and forms in poetry, particularly in liturgical poetry, and in medieval interpretations of this poetry and music.

    The present volume thrusts the reader into the intellectual turmoil of the period in medieval Europe that is often characterized by Peter Abelard and his controversies with contemporary authorities. Although the earlier part of the twelfth century remains the focus of the book, this should not be taken as a clearly delimited period. Many of the phenomena dealt with had roots in earlier times and did by no means end with the 'high Middle Ages'.

    In several articles, the poetical heritage of the Carolingian environment of the palace school of Charles the Bald is examined – a poetic before the poetics, the place and function of music in the liturgical context, to name but two subjects that are treated. With the twelfth century, the ideas developed during the preceding centuries finally took a more institutional shape; in the present book, we see this phenomenon represented in Peter Abelards hymnary for the Paraclete, ritual representations and liturgical drama, in commentaries to biblical poetry, such as the Glossa ordinaria to Lamentations. Finally, the interpretation and understanding of musical texts,  exemplified by the view on Boethius’ De Musica and the new literary genre represented by commentaries to Sequences  in the later middle ages give the volume a final touch and tie its end again to the beginning.
