    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden seven courts has been appointed to specialize in admiralty law cases. These cases are either civil or criminal cases with connection to shipping on Swedish territory.

    The objective was to examine and describe the admiralty law verdicts over time with focus on what types of cases, differences between courts and variation over time. The study focused on merchant shipping.

    Study of literature was chosen as method and with follow-up questions interviews were made with agencies and experts. The literature in this study was the 153 verdicts that were announced between 2009 and 2013.

    Of all verdicts collected were five civil cases and 148 criminal cases with 13 classifications. The largest difference between the courts was the sum of verdicts. A change over time could not be observed.

    Other conclusions that were made were that ships’ masters, that have the utmost responsibility, avoided prosecution when they were not present for the event of the prosecution.

    The Shakespearean Stahr: Using Genette’s Theory of Intertextuality to Compare The Last Tycoon to Shakespeare’s Tragedies2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay uses Gerard Genette’s theory of intertextuality – in particular, architextuality - in order to establish the connection between Shakespearean tragedies and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last novel, The Last Tycoon. The essay relies mainly on known Shakespeare critic A.C Bradley and the categories he uses in order to establish what makes a Shakespearean tragedy a Shakespearean tragedy. This framework will then be used to further elaborate upon the architextual connection between Shakespeare and Fitzgerald. The essay also compares the characters from The Last Tycoon directly to characters from Shakespeare’s tragedies in order to further show the intertextual connections. For example, Fitzgerald's main character Monroe Stahr is compared to Julius Caesar, from Shakespeare's play of the same name, while the antagonist Mr Brady is compared to both Cassius from the previously mentioned Julius Caesar, as well as Iago from Othello

    Abstract [en]

    The Letters by Anne Marie Appelgren is based on the author’s own experience. It tells the story of a woman trapped in her past. After her mother dies the protagonist inherits old family letters and soon starts her journey to find out how the family situation got so toxic. She finds out about her mother’s childhood in Germany, at the beginning of World War II, and  how the child was bounced between Germany, Finland and Sweden during the war.

    The rift between mother and daughter began when the daughter felt stifled and invisible in her home environment and needed to break free. Her mother would never forgive her for this.

    The daughter finds out that she is the last link in a series of only daughters. If there were two daughters only one gave birth. Six generations all have at least three things in common; they followed a man to a different country, they all got divorced, except for one who remained in a loveless marriage, and each had a problematic relationship with their mother.

    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.

    Senmoderna reflexioner: Festskrift till Johan Fornäs2012Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Senmoderna reflexioner. Festskrift till Johan Fornäs, är en antologi med tjugotre artiklar tillägnade Johan Fornäs på hans 60-årsdag den 7 mars 2012. Flera av artiklarna utgår från teman i Johan Fornäs böcker, medan andra på olika sätt behandlar ämnen relaterade till hans breda och mångfacetterade intresseområden. Boken är indelad i fyra tematiska delar, som behandlar olika praktiker: teoretiska, mediala, estetiska och litterära. Under rubriken ”teoretiska praktiker” diskuteras olika aspekter av hermeneutik, kulturalisering och kulturellt kapital. Under ”mediala praktiker” återfinns studier av samtida mediefenomen och deras relationer till demokrati och politik. ”Estetiska praktiker” innefattar bidrag som diskuterar kulturella praktikers funktion i den offentliga sfären. I den avslutande delen, ”litterära praktiker”, analyseras utvalda litterära texter och den diskurs som omger dem. Huvuddelen av artiklarna är skrivna på svenska, med undantag av tre engelska bidrag.

    Late modern reflexions: Festschrift for Johan Fornäs is an anthology of more than twenty essays dedicated to Johan Fornäs on his 60th birthday 7th of mars 2012. Several of the articles included take Johan Fornäs’ books as their starting point, while others are related, in different ways, to his wide and diverse interests. The book is divided into four thematic parts, dealing with "Theoretical Practices", “Medial Practices”. “Aesthetic Practices” and “Literary Practices”. Articles included under ”Theoretical Practices” discuss different aspects of hermenutics, culturalization, and cultural capital. ”Medial Practices” offers studies of contemporary media phenomena, relating them to questions of democracy and politics.”Aesthetic Practices” include contributions that discuss the function of different cultural practices in the public sphere. The last section, ”Literary Practices”, takes a closer look at both select literary texts and the discourses surrounding them. Most of the Articles are written in Swedish, with the exception of three articles in English.

    The Orient and The Occident: Breaking Stereotypes in The Reluctant Fundamentalist2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a postcolonial novel that, in this essay, is argued to challenge and question the colonial stereotypes which came into greater focus after 9/11 in America. The challenge is carried out via the narrator’s identity struggle by displaying the different stereotypes he is subjected to. The quiet listener to the narrator’s monologue, together with the reader’s part in creating and making sense of the novel also contributes towards challenging these stereotypes. The East and West are set against each other, displaying how both have harsh and generalizing views of the other.

    Traditionella könsmönster och normbrytande karaktärer: Tre barnlitteraturanalyser ur ett genusperspektiv2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyses three children’s books, selected from a list of bestsellers during 2016. The selected books are intended for children aged 6–9 and are categorized as easy reading. The aim of the study is to analyse how girls and boys are portrayed in children’s literature from a gender perspective. With this study we want to bring greater awareness and understanding of gender in children’s literature.

    When children read, they create new experiences and ideas about the world around them. As a teacher it is therefore important to have gender awareness when choosing books in the classroom. The analyses showed that the books contained not only reproductions of traditional gender patterns but also characters who went against the norms. This result agreed in part with previous research and the prevailing discourses in society.

    "All people are different, but everyone is of equal worth": Three utopian manifestoes by Öyvind Fahlström (1928–76)2014In: Utopia : The Fourth Bi-Annual Conference of the European Network for Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies: University of Helsinki, Finland, 29 - 31 August 2014, European Network for Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies , 2014, p. 110-110Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1953 the Swedish concrete poet and internationally renowned avant-garde artist Öyvind Fahlström (1928–76) wrote the worlds first manifesto for concrete poetry, inspired by the historical avant-garde and the neo-avant-garde that at the same time was on its rise, but also by Pierre Schaeffer’s musique concrète. What is little known, though, is that this manifesto was followed by a string of others, of which I here will discuss three utopian manifests from 1962, 1966 and 1976. The first manifesto took its incentive from the exhibition Movement in Art, and introduces radical ideas about involving the audience in the artwork/s itself. The intention was to erase the barrier between artist, artwork and audience. In the two later manifestoes Fahlström – after his move to New York 1961 – takes a more explicit political stance. In the manifesto from 1966 he draws up a Utopia without war, commercialism, and poverty, where citizens have equal rights and live in ”the ecstatic society” with free sex and drugs, ideas a few years ahead of the 1968 revolt. And, finally, in the last manifesto he visualises a totally new society, based on Equality, freedom, decentralisation, work as a creative activity, and free services and goods.

    Abstract [en]

    In 1953 the Swedish concrete poet and internationally renowned avant-gardeartist Öyvind Fahlström (1928–76) wrote the worlds probably first manifesto forconcrete poetry, inspired by the historical avant-garde and the neo-avant-gardethat at the same time was on its rise, but also by Pierre Schaeffer’s musiqueconcrète. The poetical techniques proposed in his manifesto laid the ground forFahlström’s later production in different arts, from concrete poetry to radioplays. His first radio composition Fåglar i Sverige (1963, Birds in Sweden)triggered a whole new genre, the international movement of text-sound-poetry(a.k.a. sound-poetry, poésie sonore). The second radio play (or blind music, ashe called it) Den helige Torsten Nilsson (1966, The holy Torsten Nilsson), becamea small success despite its strange story, and was aired in five differentepisodes by the Swedish broadcasting company. This radio play was composedfrom what Fahlström termed ”life material”, i.e. recorded (with a microphone andcheap tape recorder) sound from the constant media flow in his apartment inNew York, with himself performing the voiceover telling the story. Theremediated material was mainly taken from popular culture, as for examplehorror movies, but also real life filtered through TV and radio. His method wasinspired by Schaeffer’s musique concrète and William Burroughs’ cut-ups, towhich he added game strategies. The result was a highly original media-mix,where he performed an international spy history interwoven with sounds fromcontemporary media and life, a mix that at the same time reflected his politicalurge and interest for world politics.I will discuss role of the book for performance art in the 60s, where the printedtext was only one of the components in a larger intermedial cluster. I willexemplify my discussion with Öyvind Fahlström’s concrete poem “Det stora ochdet lilla” (The large and the small), which became the musical score for aperformed text-sound composition, and his radio play Den helige TorstenNilsson (1966) where the book was fabricated afterwards, to illustrate the‘fluidity’ of the book in the 60s.

    Kisses Sweeter than Wine. Öyvind Fahlström and Billy Klüver: The Swedish Neo-Avant-Garde in New York2017In: Artl@s Bulletin, ISSN 2264-2668, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 139-152, article id 9Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish artist Öyvind Fahlström moved to New York in 1961, where he meet the Swedish engineer Billy Klüver, and became part of the international neo-avant-garde movement. Fahlström’s performance, New York 1966, part of Klüver’s performance series 9 Evenings, is my point of departure for an analysis of the role of migration for the neo-avant-gardes in the 1960s. As intermediaries, Fahlström and Klüver brought new ideas both to New York and Stockholm, thus challenging the established view that American art was exported to the periphery. In reality, the New York art scene grew out of ideas and experiences arriving with immigrating artists, who in turn often exchanged ideas developed in the New York melting pot with actors in their original artistic and cultural contexts.

    Mediatized Authenticity: Öyvind Fahlström’s performance "Kisses Sweater than Wine" (1966)2017In: Authentic Artifice : 3rd International Conference, International Society for Intermedial Studies. Université de Montréal, May 18-20/22 2017: Program, Montréal: Université de Montréal , 2017, p. 19-20Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Performance art is solidly rooted in the “Hier und Jetzt” asserted by Walter Benjamin as the only remaining con-dition for the Aura. But, as Philip Auslander observes, every performance is always already mediatized in one way or an-other, and still we experience its authenticity. In my paper, I will argue that mediatization seems to be a (necessary) condition for authenticity, in a discussion of the Swedish artist Öyvind Fahlström’s (1928–76) performance Kisses Sweeter than Wine(1966). In 1953, Fahlström wrote the world’s first manifesto for concrete poetry, inspired by Pierre Schaeffer’s musique concrète. In the mid 1950s he turned to the visual arts,and later he wrote radio plays, directed movies and arranged per-formances and happenings. He moved to New York in 1961 and joined the international neo-avant-gardes there. In his use of new technology and different broadcasting media, Fahlström was a forerunner for media art, and the intermedial intricacy can be fully understood and discussed only in our own infor-mation age. His, and other similar, experiments in the 1960s are important links in the genealogy of today’s networked, global, and multiscreen world, since they constitute early con-fluences of cybernetics, art, and media. This is best seen in his performance, which was part of 9 Evenings. Theatre and Engi-neeringarranged by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York in 1966. He mixed performance on stage with a plethora of mediatized events, but still his art retained its essential authenticity.

    Abstract [en]

    Avant-garde aesthetic movements react on and appropriate new technological media in a process of breaking down the boundaries between different media and different “arts," in an attempt to generate meaning from the sheer materiality of the artwork. Avant-garde artworks will therefore by necessity be marked by media in different ways, at the same time as these art forms are processual, performative and transgressive. One of the prime Swedish examples of this avant-garde strategy is Ake Hodell’s many realizations of his manuscript Lågsniff. The manuscript, written in 1963, was in the form of a text-sound-composition, which means that Lågsniff, already in this form, took many configurations with a plurality of genres and media modalities involved. Later the manuscript was realized as a series of performances, a TV-film, a book, and in 2002 as a DVD. For such a collection of art works, I would like to suggest the term “intermedial cluster.” The point of departure for my discussion is the DVD, a remediation of the TV- film from 1966, and I will focus on two of the juxtaposed discourses in the cluster that this DVD represents: the package tour and warfare, and on two thematic foci in the film: media and memory, and man as automaton.

    "The Trumpet in the Bottom": The Uncanny in Öyvind Fahlström’s Work2014In: Gothic and Uncanny Explorations: Karlstads universitet, Karlstad, 10–12 september 2014, Karlstad: Karlstads universitet, 2014, p. 10-11Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Öyvind Fahlström (1928–76) commenced as a surrealist author in the late 40s, writing several large and unpublished manuscripts as e.g. ”The Trumpet in the Bottom”, but soon turned to avant-garde art becoming a driving force in the Swedish neo-avant-garde. In 1953 he wrote the world’s first manifesto for concrete poetry, inspired by Pierre Schaeffer’s musique concrète. In the late 50s he became a visual artist and later wrote radio plays, directed movies and arranged performances. During his lifetime one of the main sources for inspiration was the debris of everyday life, and consequently he thematizes the uncanny in his political art of the 60s and 70s. Fahlström uses the uncanny to display the return of the repressed in everyday life: scatology, pornography, the monstrous, the body, the materiality of the artwork, media and popular culture etc, according to Schelling’s comment: “Unheimlich sei alles, was ein Geheimnis, im Verborgenen bleiben sollte und hervorgetreten ist”. His later work therefore previsions Nicholas Bourriaud’s notion of relational aesthetics as a (political) uncovering of everyday life. In my paper I will discuss Fahlström’s oeuvre from the early texts, via his radioplays and films, to the visual art of the 70s.

    The Girl Who Fell to Earth: Sophia Al-Maria’s Retro-Futurism2017In: C21 Literature: Journal of 21st-century Writings, ISSN 2045-5224, Vol. 5, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reads Sophia Al-Maria’s aesthetics of Gulf Futurism as a mode of retro-futurist nostalgia, nostalgia not for the past but for the future. Retro-futurism can be understood in terms of what Mark Fisher has called, following Jacques Derrida, “hauntology” (Fisher 2014), the project of interrogating the failure of the utopian promises of modernity on both personal and collective registers. Literary and cultural critics have long maintained that postmodernism marks a post-futurist moment in which imagined futures are pre-determined by the ideological imperatives of market capitalism. Yet, this “slow cancellation of the future” (Berardi 2011: 18) has paradoxically entailed a proliferation of 21st-century futurisms: Afro-Futurism, Sino-Futurism, Gulf Futurism, accelerationism, design fiction, climate fiction, and so forth. My argument is that, in its articulation of Gulf Futurism, The Girl Who Fell to Earthdistorts and undermines modernity’s signature narrative of development and progress, holding up a mirror to its history of broken promises and thereby challenging its imagined foreclosure of possible futures.

    Contemporary South African Horror: On Meat, Neoliberalism and the Postcolonial Politics of a Global Form2014In: Horror Studies, ISSN 2040-3275, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 85-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Following the postapartheid encounter with neo-liberal economics, South African cultural production has begun to register the influence of global, popular forms borne into the country on the tide of multinational capital. Horror is one such commercial mode the manifestation of which, in contemporary South Africa, is thus bound up with processes of economic globalization. Its deployment in the country is also, however, committed to unveiling the brutalities and dehumanizations underpinning the neo-liberal operation of global capital. In these texts, economic deprivation and exploitation are made to resonate with the country’s history of racial oppression, and are given brutal form as evocations of the person become meat. The circumscribed position in which such narratives situate themselves – their critique of the processes which sustain them – is the focus of this article’s final stages: I suggest we read South Africa’s horror, not as complicit in some invalidating way, but as an experimental exploration of modes and voices in a postapartheid culture unrestrained by polarizing ethical demands to oppose the racist state. South African horror arises, then, in a context where the binary is losing purchase as a model for dissent, and this observation, I venture, may have implications not simply for the postapartheid production of such narratives, but for wider manifestations of the genre too.

    'My Skin, a Parchment of Tales': Trauma, Wounding and the Postapartheid Gothic in Terry Westby-Nunn's Sea of Wise Insects2013In: Current Writing: Text and Reception in Southern Africa, ISSN 1013-929X, E-ISSN 2159-9130, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 76-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I read Terry Westby-Nunn's The Sea of Wise Insects as an example of the literary mode identified increasingly by scholars as South African postcolonial Gothic. In line with existing research, I work from a definition of the gothic genre which casts it as highly culturally specific and shaped by the anxieties of the society in which it arises. In Westby-Nunn's narrative these fears are enmeshed in the South African past, and revolve, more specifically, around the extent to which history's bearing on the present has become a dangerous point of repression. My argument traces a transgenerational logic of traumatic transmission, which situates the unspoken crimes of an old generation at the psychic nerve-centre of Westby-Nunn's contemporary protagonist, a strategy which disrupts any illusion of a stable boundary between the injustice of ‘then’ and the liberation of ‘now’. Finally, I suggest that through the deployment of an aesthetic which draws on the gothic sub-genre of horror-writing, Westby-Nunn develops a narrative which, to paraphrase Tabish Khair, does not operate “only in words”. Instead, the text relies in part on visceral reader reactions so that the novel admits of silence in a way that avoids replicating the exclusionary logic underpinning the institutionalised discrimination in South Africa's history.

    Shades of Dissent: Notes on Haunting in South African Literary History2017In: Routledge Handbook to the Ghost Story / [ed] Scott Brewster, Luke Thurston, London: Routledge, 2017Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter suggests encountering gradations—or, perhaps more appropriately, shades—of dissent. It explores the idea in respect of haunting figures emergent across the twentieth century in South African literatures. The tale of South African politics is, Antjie Krog suggests, something akin to a haunted house: narratives of liberal empire—elaborately extended as apartheid from the middle of the twentieth century—are populated by restless, revenant things. To read Perceval Gibbon’s ghost stories as haunted by that which their imperial premises cannot acknowledge is to engage in a particular historical praxis. The ability of the ghost to interrupt ‘modern’ knowledges becomes especially important if it is considered that, in South Africa, the epistemologies have unfolded with the processes of imperial expansion. Discourses inherited from Enlightenment modernity inform British imperial governance, and they live on as the founding premise of apartheid rule, which began with the election of the National Party in 1948.

    Introduction: McGrath in the World: Gothic, Madness and Transnational Consciousness2019In: Patrick McGrath and his Worlds: Madness and the Transnational Gothic / [ed] Matt Foley, Rebecca Duncan, London: Routledge, 2019, p. 1-18Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This introduction identifies a transnational consciousness that runs through Patrick McGrath’s work. Locating this in relation to the author’s own migration from England to the United States, and considering it in the context of late-twentieth and early-twenty-first century transatlantic upheavals, the chapter explores McGrath’s established and related investments in the gothic and tropes of madness as registering and, at times, interrogating contemporary geopolitical shifts. To bring this relationship between madness, gothic, and the transnational into focus, the introduction examines a selection of fictions from across McGrath’s oeuvre through the lens of the imperial gothic—a mode that is frequently reflexively and critically engaged by these texts. Viewed in this way, McGrath’s gothic figurations of madness can—in certain of his narratives—be read to witness anxieties around the decline of British and US hegemony in the latter phases of the Cold War, for example, and in the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001. To approach the author’s fiction from this vantage point is not, as we point out, to refuse the psychoanalytic perspectives so frequently applied to the McGrath canon; rather, it is to make visible the ways in which self-consciously summoned clinical paradigms articulate with gothic forms and a transnational sensibility to critique planetary formations of power. The introduction closes with an outline of the chapters collected in this volume.

    Astrid Lindgren and the Archives2012In: Papers: Explorations into Children's Literature, ISSN 1034-9243, E-ISSN 1837-4530, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 81-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The author Astrid Lindgren (1907-2002) is for many Swedes a genuine national icon. On several occasions, when the most popular and influential Swede is to be announced, Astrid Lindgren’s name is always one of the top names. Astrid Lindgren is for the Swedes known not only as a famous author, but also as a person who spoke out on things she found wrong in the Swedish society. In the history of Swedish literature 1945 is usually regarded as a milestone and Astrid Lindgren’s book Pippi Longstocking was published and revolutionised both children’s literature and the attitude to children and their upbringing. Astrid Lindgren also worked as editor-in-chief for the publishing house Rabén & Sjögren from 1946 to 1970 and for almost a quarter of a century she was responsible for the children’s literature while at the same time she was in practise her own editor. Today, ten years after she passed away 94 years old, her remaining papers, letters and manuscripts are kept in different archives where interesting research can be carried out. There is a substantial amount of material from her rich and prolific life and in this article I wish to illustrate how this material can be used to provide a deeper knowledge of Astrid Lindgren as a person and as an editor.
