    "What Am I? What Do I Want?": An analysis of The Glassy Sea by Marian Engel2001Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay is a study of The Glassy Sea by the Canadian author Marian Engel. The novel focuses on the main character's self exploration ans her search for identity. A Jungian approach to this novel is particularly appropriate since the author makes use of several achetypes and symbols. Moreover, the novel is presented in an introspective manner that brings to the mind the method of self-examination used in psychoanalysis. The essay studies the development of the main character's identity, Rita. Her quest can be summed up in two questions: Who is she and what does she want to do with her life? We follow Rita through a series of steps that will lead her to maturity and to an independant life. Her development takes place in stages and the essay focuses on four of these. There is a regularity of pattern at each stage; Rita lives in different homes where she is under the influence of a mentor, whose role model she accepts at first, submits to and finally rejects. Among the archetypal images that appear in the novel, we find that the mother archetype is omnipresent and that Rita's growth progress is strongly connected to the mother complex. The author also makes use of the egg, the rose and the sea symbols to underline certain aspects of Rita's development. The essay seeks to connect Rita's developmental phases to the initiation rituals and the individuation process described by Jung.

    Individuell läsning som undervisningsmetod: En studie om lärares och elevers upplevelser2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien undersöker den individuella läsningen som undervisningsmetod. Syftet är att åskådliggöra lärares och elevers upplevelser av individuell läsning, med fokus på utformning och kunskapsinhämtning, för att sedan jämföra och belysa relationen dem emellan. Studiens teoretiska utgångspunkter är konstruktivism och fenomenologi, vilka betonar vikten av elevernas intresse och motivation för att lärande ska uppstå, samt att individernas uttalanden om det studerade fenomenet är sanningsbärande fakta. Studiens material består av 15 ljudinspelningar, där två lärare och 13 elever intervjuats om deras upplevelser av individuell läsning. Materialet transkriberades och analyserades med hjälp av en innehållsanalys. Resultatet visar att upplevelserna av den individuella läsningens utformning i vissa avseenden skiljde sig åt mellan lärarna och eleverna. Eleverna upplevde att det inte läggs så stor vikt vid den individuella läsningen, en upplevelse som inte delades av lärarna. Litteraturen var en av de faktorer eleverna upplevde som avgörande för att den individuella läsningen skulle fungera som lärandeaktivitet. Eleverna upplevde att motivation var det viktigaste för att utveckla kunskaper och läsintresse genom individuell läsning. Lärarna upplevde att eleverna genom den individuella läsningen skulle få möjlighet att utveckla läsintresse, läsförmåga, läsförståelse samt språklig förmåga. Eleverna menade att de genom att läsa utvecklade språklig förmåga, läsförmåga, läsförståelse, föreställningsvärldar samt skaffade sig faktakunskaper genom litteraturen. Jämförelsen mellan lärarnas och elevernas upplevelser visar att de i många fall liknar varandra. Tankarna skiljde sig i att eleverna upplevde att de utvecklade faktakunskaper och sina föreställningsvärldar, vilket lärarna inte nämnde.

    Magiska möjligheter: Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl och Cirkeln i skolans värdegrundsarbete2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Fantasy literature has the power to explore the real world in a magical guise. By creating magical realms where reality’s natural laws are challenged, subverted, and ultimately broken, this literary genre can help us to look at our own world in a new light. The thesis examines how the distancing perspective of fantasy literature makes this genre an ideal vehicle for discussing democracy, human rights, and multiculturalism in the classroom. The British Harry Potter series, the Irish Artemis Fowl series, and the Swedish Engelsfors Trilogy are analysed. 

    In the first chapter, the thesis’ theoretical framework is presented. The second chapter, ‘Democracy’, explores two examples of the righteous rebellion of the young in the Harry Potter series and the Engelsfors Trilogy. In both cases, the adolescents rebel in order to defend democratic values and democratic rights, when they are threatened by corrupt adults and institutions. At the same time, the rebellions problematise the distribution of power according to age.

    The third chapter, ‘Human rights’, explores in depth one of the most important genre characteristics of fantasy literature—the existence of magic. Three young fantasy characters’ use of magical powers, for the purpose of challenging the restrictions that intersections impose on them, are investigated and related to questions concerning human rights.

    The fourth chapter, ‘Multiculturalism’, investigates two culture clashes found in fantasy literature: a body switch between five teenage witches in the Engelsfors trilogy, and a confrontation between the human world and the fairy world in the Artemis Fowl series. In both cases, questions are raised about how a confrontation with “the Other” can enrich our lives and help us realise what type of person we want to be. Thus, the possible gains of multiculturalism are highlighted.

    Finally, the fifth chapter, ‘Magical possibilities’, summarises the conclusions of the thesis and suggests some guidelines for how teachers can best work with fantasy literature in the classroom.

    Walking in Someone Else's Shoes: The Body Switch in the Engelsfors Trilogy2017In: Barnboken, ISSN 0347-772X, E-ISSN 2000-4389, Vol. 40, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the second book in the Swedish fantasy series about the town Engelsfors, Fire (2013), a dysfunctional group of witches is forced to unite and work together in order to hide that they have switched bodies with each other. This version of the body-switching motif is different from the more common body switch between two characters in that five people who are all focalised throughout the experience take part in it. The body switch is closely tied to a learning process about the need for cooperation and understanding for other people’s life situations, which in turn emphasises the different girls’ intersectional power positions (cf. Crenshaw "Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race and Sex"). Through the process of walking in someone else’s shoes, the girls get to experience how it feels to watch their own body and life from a distance. Simultaneously, they get to play the part of someone else. As a consequence, they learn about both their own life situation and intersectional power position, and about the girl whose body they temporarily reside in. Thus, the literalisation of the figure of speech “to walk in someone else’s shoes” becomes a learning process. By positioning each individual young woman as the active subject in another girl’s life and the passive object in their own life, the body switch functions as a fantasy literary equivalent to the photograph motif, which according to Roberta Seelinger Trites often is deployed as a vehicle for illuminating how people are simultaneously the subject and the object in their own lives in realistic adolescent literature (123). The article is based on the concept of intersectionality, photograph theory, Mikhail Bakhtin’s carnival theory, and Tzvetan Todorov’s theory on how fantastic literature can turn figures of speech into literalised facts. These theories are all used to investigate how the body switch problematises and changes the witches’ ability to influence their respective life situation.

    A Cognitive Analysis of Characters in Swedish and Anglophone Children's Fantasy Literature2018In: International Research in Children's Literature (IRCL), ISSN 1755-6198, E-ISSN 1755-6201, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 65-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Justice in Young Adult Speculative Fiction, Marek C. Oziewicz argues, 'it is possible to study scripts through the lens of the author's cognition, through the reader's cognition, or as a textual matter with an implied author and reader' (9-10). Here we propose a fourth method for studying scripts in children's literature: as a textual matter. Unlike previous research in the field, we argue that neither the implied author nor the implied or real reader's cognition is necessary for a cognitive analysis to offer insights about a literary text. A cognitive analysis of characters can demonstrate how each character's cognitive embodiment of their intersectional subject position contributes to the progression of a text's plot and themes. By analysing the mimetic, synthetic and thematic dimensions of character (Phelan), we maintain an ontological distinction between humans and characters - a prerequisite for applying cognitive theories to characters. In order to demonstrate the broad applicability of our approach, we analyse the cognitive scripts of the protagonists in two portal-quest fantasies form two different countries. Taliah Pollack's Saga Sward: Omskakare och varldsresenar [Saga Sword: world shaker and traveller] was published in Sweden in 2012; Tahereh Mafi's Furthermore dates from 2016 and was published in the US.

    Bland bloggar, forum och böcker: En studie av läsvanor hos några elever i skolår åtta och nio2011Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Flera rapporter de senaste åren har visat att eleverna i den svenska skolan läser allt mindre. Ärdet så eller väljer eleverna bara andra sorters texter än vi är vana vid? Den här uppsatsenssyfte är att undersöka om några elever i skolår åtta och nio läser, och vad de då väljer för sortstexter. Vidare skall det även undersökas om det finns några skillnader mellan flickors ochpojkars läsning och vad som skiljer sig mellan skolår åtta och nio.

    Undersökningen har gjorts med hjälp av en enkätundersökning i två klasser, en åtta och ennia. Enkäten tar upp elevernas läsvanor vad gäller sex olika sorters textforum, både trycktaoch digitala. Tidigare forskning har visat att flickor läser mer på sin fritid än pojkar. Det ärnågot som kan styrkas i den här undersökningen. Det visar sig att flickor läser mer än pojkaroch att både flickor och pojkar ofta väljer bort skönlitteratur till förmån för digitala medieroch forum.

    Vem är hip-hop?: Om Olof Palme, ortens betydelse och identiet inom svensk raplyrik2016Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to gain insight into Swedish hiphop culture and some important values connected to the culture. This essay will strictly focus on the kind of values Swedish rappers describe in their lyrics regarding the streets, the suburbans and their neighborhood. My analysis is built upon eight rap albums by different rappers originating from a few of the bigger cities of Sweden. I use Laclau & Mouffe’s discourse theory to analyse the material which exposed a hiphop ideal regarding a tough background, a factor that seems to be highly valued and put above the basic four elements of the culture. I also found that Swedish rappers romanticize the former Swedish prime minister Olof Palme and his era, which is a unique spin in comparison with a lot of different countries’ national hiphop discourses, which often lack a particular time to idolize.

    Féminitude et négritude: discours de genre et discours culturel dans l'oeuvre de Calixthe Beyala2010In: Présence francophone, ISSN 0048-5195, no 75, p. 32-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines how Calixthe Beyala, by using two key concepts, féminitude and négritude, engages in a dialogue with different European or Occidental feminist movements on the one side and the myths and traditions of the African continent on the other side. She adresses, one could say, Simone de Beauvoir's question "What is a woman?", as well as the question asked by the négritude writers, "What is a negro?". The analysis of the opposition between the universal and the particular will show the complexity of the question of identity in Calixthe Beyala's work.

    Makt och motstånd för alla åldrar: Naturen som subversiv kraft i Elsa Beskows Sagan om den lilla hinden2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bilderboken Sagan om den lilla hinden kom ut 1924, bara några år efter att kvinnlig rösträtt införts i Sverige. Denna studie pekar på forskning som uppmärksammat att Beskow tidigt förde in samhällskritik i sina barnbokstexter och att kvinnors yttrandefrihet låg henne varmt om hjärtat. Studien bekräftar och fördjupar den bilden och visar bland annat att Beskow i Sagan om den lilla hinden använder sig av sofistikerade litterära strategier för att uppmana till motstånd mot snäva och inskränkta samhällsnormer samt plädera för en friare samhällsdebatt. Med hjälp av en ramberättelse skapar Beskow i bild och text ett dualt/jämlikt tilltal som når både vuxna och barn. Hon lyfter fram en aktiv flicka och visar redan i den inledande ramberättelsen på skapandet och läsandet som en jämlik sysselsättning, där generationer och kön kan mötas på jämbördig nivå. Studien visar därtill att Elsa Beskow använder sig av naturen för att peka på patriarkala och andra samtida maktrelationer och att hon uppmanar till motstånd och visar andra möjliga, friare könsroller och föreställningar. Uppsatsen visar också att Beskows "nya sköna gröna värld" tangerar modern debatt. Ett underliggande budskap är att vad som är ”normalt” bestäms genom maktutövning, och att snäva normer krymper oss som människor och gör avvikelsen till ett samhällsproblem. Bilderboken kan delvis ses som ett inlägg mot alltför normerande kroppsuppfattningar och på så vis kopplas till dagens ätstörningsproblematik.

    Lätt att läsa...eller?: En analys av en lättläst skönlitterär bok.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to investigate the simplifications that result when a work of fiction is adapted for easy reading by pupils with reading difficulties. A subsidiary aim is to examine how text and pictures relate to each other in the easy-to-read book. The material is analysed and divided into categories that exist for easy-to-read books. The result shows that the text in the easy-to-read book has not undergone any textual simplification, but only graphical changes in combination with the addition of more pictures. These graphical changes facilitate reading for pupils with reading difficulties and help them to develop their reading ability.

    "Säg till din mamma att köpa en bättre baddräkt åt dig": En jämförelse mellan boken och filmen Svinalängorna, med utgångspunkt i temat utanförskap.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study compares the novel Svinalängorna by Susanna Alakoski and the film version, based on the theme of exclusion. The study aims to see the potential the film can have in comparison with the book when it comes to representing the theme of exclusion in the teaching of literature as part of the upper secondary subject of Swedish. This has been investigated using coding and analysis of narrative technique. Key scenes have then been set in relation to multimodality. The result shows that exclusion generally seems to be depicted in the same way in the book and the film. At the same time, the products differ in their focus on different aspects of exclusion. The aspect of poverty, for example, is more prominent in the book, while social problems are more prominent in the film. The fact that the film is multimodal was found to reinforce the exclusion, and the result shows that the film is probably best suited for use in teaching from the point of view of film as comparison.

    Praktiska förslag på teoretisk grund: Didaktiska redskap för svensklärarens narratologiska verktygslåda2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att utifrån en narratologisk analys av Lina Wolffs De polyglotta älskarna diskutera hur Gérard Genettes narratologiska begrepp homo-, hetero- och autodiegetisk berättare, fokalisering, analeps och proleps kan göras tydliga och greppbara för elever i den svenska gymnasieskolan. Utifrån Örjan Torells modell för litterär kompetens diskuterar jag sedan hur begreppen kan presenteras och förklaras för att förstås av elever i svenskundervisningen. Materialet som står till grund för uppsatsen är Lina Wolffs De polyglotta älskarna, Gérard Genettes Narrative discourse och Örjan Torells Hur gör man en litteraturläsare?. Analysen visar att Wolffs roman i många avseenden kan bidra med tydliga exempel och intressanta narratologiska skiften. Utifrån Torells tre delkompetenser performanskompetens, konstitutionell kompetens och literary transferkompetens presenteras sedan två praktiska, didaktiska förslag. Istället för att söka begreppsförenklingar föreslås lärare söka nya sätt att förklara avancerade begrepp.

    Modernitet och intermedialitet i Erik Asklunds tidiga romankonst2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Modernitet och intermedialitet is the first major study of the Swedish modernist writer Erik Asklund (1908-1980) and his works. The thesis consists of an introductory chapter and three close readings of Asklund’s early novels Kvinnan är stor (The Woman is Great, 1931), Lilla land (A Small Country, 1933), and Fanfar med fem trumpeter (A Fanfare with Five Trumpets, 1934). In these novels, Asklund depicts modernity in Sweden in the 1930’s.

    Exploring the modernity of the 1930’s in Asklund’s novels, especially the contemporary media situation turns out to be one of the most important aspects. Asklund wrote stories about film, music and various forms of visual culture, (photography, for instance). These different forms of art and media play an important role for Asklund’s writings, not only thematically, but also narationally. In my analyses, I put forward different theoretical aspects of intermediality. In this context, the ideas of Werner Wolf have been especially useful to my examinations of the intermedial aspects in Asklund’s works.

    In the novel Kvinnan är stor, Asklund tells the story about the young woman Lydia, who moves from the countryside to the big city of Stockholm. She then learns to decode the modern urban society, and becomes a modern woman. In Kvinnan är stor, intermediality is expressed mainly through various connections to film and photography.

    The modernization of Sweden in the early 20th century was much a question of the countryside becoming modern. In Lilla land, Asklund depicts this process. The novel is one of the first works ever focusing the forming of the Swedish welfare state project. The story is told in a cinematic or filmical way.

    The third novel to be analysed in the thesis is Fanfar med fem trumpeter. This is one of the first Swedish jazz novels. Asklund tells the story about five young unemployed men in Stockholm who form a jazz orchestra, and make a career. The novels characters experience everyday life as “medialized”; they compare reality with music, film, and photography.

    These novels, as well as all Asklund’s writings from the 1930’s, are important contributions to the “story about Sweden becoming a modern country”. This “story” consists of the novels, short stories and poems written in the early decades of the 20th century in Sweden.

    Working on a dream: Arbetarklass, arbetare och arbete som motiv i ett urval av Bruce Springsteens texter 1973-842018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Bruce Springsteen is often referred to a as the blue collar or working man’s poet but how can he represent the working class since he only worked in manual labor for a week of his life? This paper tries to analyse how selected texts between 1973-84 are related to working class litterature and how this is perceived from the perspective of work and the worker. The analysis show that there are no general definitions regarding workingclass that can be used as a model or reference to working class literature. An alternative definition is based on reception and how the texts are read and perceived as working class by the reader. The findings are that Springsteen uses work and the worker in a very limited way in his texts and when he does, work is often something that is required to be able to do something else. It is only in a few cases Springsteen actually describes the work and the workers as for example in “Factory” and “Working on the Highway”.
