    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.

    "Kan verka skrämmande på små barn": Våld, sex och historiebruk i tv-serien Trälarna2012In: Barnboken, ISSN 0347-772X, E-ISSN 2000-4389, Vol. 35, p. 1-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the television adaption and reception of Swedish youth novelist Sven Wernström’s series of historical youth novels called Trälarna  (‘‘The Thralls’’) in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The book series as well as the Danish animated televisions series used a noticeable class perspective in order to make comparisons between the condition of slaves in medieval times and Swedish working class of the 19th and 20th centuries. In accordance with the novels, the television series therefore displays a strong moral historical perspective. The analysis in the article focuses mainly on the abundant use of violence and sex as political and pedagogical instruments to promote class consciousness among its child viewers. In contrast to the novels, the television series was able to create more explicit audiovisual images of violence and sex that, in fact, were censored by Swedish state television before it was aired on a child friendly timeslot. Although some scenes in the television series were censored, the final analysis reveals that ‘‘The Thralls’’ can be seen as a rather typical example of the politically and aesthetically radical Swedish children’s culture of the 1970’s.

    "Läs kamrat Jesus i söndagskolorna!" Mottagandet av Sven Wernströms Kamrat Jesus i Sverige2015In: Barnboken, ISSN 0347-772X, E-ISSN 2000-4389, Vol. 38, p. 1-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sven Wernström’s children’s book Kamrat Jesus (Comrade Jesus, 1971) depicts Jesus as a revolutionary leader. The author’s intention was to generate a debate on the Bible’s way of describing Jesus. When published, Kamrat Jesus was treated in thirty-two reviews and polemical articles, published in daily papers, Christian Magazines and periodicals for teachers of religion, librarians and Sunday-school teachers. The 1970s is generally described as a decade dominated by the agenda of the left, and in line with this the majority of the reviews published in daily papers convey a positive view of the work. However, in this article, all the reviews are studied, and then another image emerges. The periodicals that are aimed at teachers of religion,librarians and church leaders ignore the work to a high extent, or reject it due to aesthetical considerations or its lack of concordance with current Bible research. Thus, Kamrat Jesus, despite the political climate, did not fulfil the author’s aim. The article shows that in literary surveys and special-feature issues on children’s literature and religion, the work was ignored for the remainder of the 1970s. Presenting Jesus as a revolutionary was thus not commonly accepted even during this left-wing decade.

    Världen i burken och staden av kartonger: En studie av förpackningen i barnboken2005In: Barnboken, ISSN 0347-772X, E-ISSN 2000-4389, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 30-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Förpackningens egenskaper i barnlitteraturen beskrivs här med exempel från bl.a. Astrid Lindgren, Tove Jansson, Maurice Sendak, James Warhola och Inger och Lasse Sandberg. En burk eller kartong ger uppslag till barnens lekar och frigörelseprocesser från de vuxna och den faktiska världen. Förpackningen kan vara fantastisk så som folksagans magiska föremål, men den kan också bära på kritik av hur vår miljö behandlas och hur vi lever tillsammans.

    "När det tar slut och börjar om igen": Ekokritiska perspektiv på Stefan Castas ungdomsdystopier2015In: Barnboken, ISSN 0347-772X, E-ISSN 2000-4389, Vol. 38, p. 1-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish author Stefan Casta has written several books for children and adults, thematically addressing nature and environment. This paper highlights and discusses ideological and aesthetical aspects in his recent novel, Den gröna cirkeln (2011) and its sequel, Under tiden (2012), from an ecocritical perspective. The novels combine environmental commitment with a dystopian story about four young people who survive a climate catastrophe but get lost in a world they no longer recognize and where ordinary logic does not seem to exist. The paper elucidates this process by a comparison with Buell’s (2001) concept of toxic discourse as there are several parallells, such as elements like a lost paradise, inescapable toxic, and the oppression of powerful societal interests, throughout the story. Simultaneously, ambivalence towards culture and civilization is expressed. Nature and culture become intertwined in a way that differs from the conventional dichotomy and this complexity is the supporting structure of the texts.

    The four teenagers, and even more so the following generation, become symbols of a new future, a pattern recognized from much dystopian as well as children’s fiction, where the weak and oppressed turn out to be the heroes. The optimistic and didactic ambition in this kind of dystopian stories is often aimed at creating an engagement for environmental issues and a sustainable future among young people. By placing the story in an imagined future as well as adding fantastic elements, Stefan Casta creates a kind of ”Verfremdungseffekt” on phenomena we often do not question in our lifestyle. This could be a liberating relativization to the young readers; the social and cultural drives that rule many of our life choices are not essential and can therefore always be reconsidered.
