    Concurrences in Contemporary Travel Writing: Postcolonial Critique and Colonial Sentiments in Sven Lindqvist’s Exterminate all the Brutes and Terra Nullius2014In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 6, no 72, p. 1319-1345Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent research highlights contemporary travel writing’s complicity in global politics, and the genre is claimed to reproduce the discourses that constitute our understanding of the world. It has also been argued that the genre holds a possibility to help us gain further knowledge about contemporary global politics, as it may work as an arena where global politics is commented on, intervened with and reshaped. With this double view, current research exemplifies how scholars today grapple with the challenge of accounting for simultaneous and sometimes conflicting histories and conditions that are altered and affected by colonial contacts, practices and ideologies, and by recent globalisation. This article explores this double characteristic of the travelogue through the concept of concurrence, and discusses how this concept is useful as a tool for a new understanding of the genre. How can this concept be employed in an analysis of travel writing that is deeply engaged in a critique of colonialism and its legacy in today’s globalism but is simultaneously enmeshed in and complicit with the legacy that is critiques? “Concurrence” is introduced as a concept for such analysis since it contains both the notion of simultaneity and competition. It is suggested that “concurrence” provides a conceptual framework that allows us to account for controversies, intersections and inequities without reinscribing them into a reconciled and universalizing perspective. In exploring the concept of concurrence, this article provides an initial analysis of two contemporary Swedish travel narratives by Sven Lindqvist. The analysis is focused on the genre’s tension between fact and fiction, its discursive entanglement in colonialism, and the problem and possibility of writing postcolonial critique by use of this genre.

    “Heart full of charity" : Affective economies in Sven Lindqvist’s Exterminate All the Brutes2018In: Affects of Diversity in Nordic Literature - DINO 2018 Conference: University of Oslo, Norway, November 1-2, 2018, Oslo: University of Oslo , 2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    "You already know enough. So do I. It is not knowledge we lack. What is missing is the courage to understand what we know and to draw conclusions." (Sven Lindqvist, Exterminate All the Brutes, 1996).

    In these, the very first and also the very last, sentences of Exterminate all the Brutes, Sven Lindqvist summarizes the main objective of his narrative: to evoke in his readers the courage to draw the necessary conclusions of European genocide. It is also made clear that this will not happen simply through knowledge, for that knowledge is already available and familiar to the readers. Something else, an emotional response, is necessary.

    This paper explores how Lindqvist moves from cognition to emotion in the narrative, and how he addresses guilt and shame in relation to privileged Europeans.

    Borrowing Sara Ahmeds concept of “affective economies of fear”, I will analyse the way Lindqvist constructs a counter-economy of emotion as a means to discuss the economy of fear associated with European genocide, and to instil courage in his readers. I will map out this counter-economy by looking at Lindqvist’s images of guilt, empathy, and anger, as well as their provocations.

    Resisting the Cosmopolitan Novel?: World Literature at Large2018In: Archives of Resistance : Cosmopolitanism, Memory and World Literature: Three-day International ConferenceUniversity of Leeds, June 20-22 2018, 2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    If the cosmopolitan mindset favours the “individual’s freedom from received roles and identities” over “the belief that nations and local cultures have value to their members over and above a universal community of citizens” (Gillman, p. 49f), what would the cosmopolitan novel favour? And where is the place for a cosmopolitan novel in world literature today?

    Revisiting the current definitions of world literature that presuppose that “books begin in one place and then move out to other places” (Walkowitz, p. 573), this paper considers two novels that both thematise and challenge these definitions and presuppositions of literary migration. The publication and translation strategy of South African J. M Coetzee’s Diary of a Bad Year (2007) problematizes the idea of the origin and subsequent dispersion of the literary work. In Brazilian Chico Buarque’s Budapest (2003, Eng. tr. 2005), the national and cultural origin of the literary work itself is called into question through the illusive identity of the protagonist as well as the migratory setting of the narrative. Hence, it may be argued that these two novels exemplify the cosmopolitan novel while resisting being defined as world literature.

    At the same time, there are features in both novels that may be interpreted as questioning cosmopolitanism. In Budapest, for example, the freedom of travel and linguistic appropriation that the narrator protagonist enjoys also illustrate the privileges of the cosmopolitan citizen and the inequality between different types of migrants in the age of globalization.

    In short, the aim of the paper is to explore literary cosmopolitanism and world literature through the two novels, in order to gauge the tension between these concepts and consider what this tension may tell us about literature in and about migration.

    Resor, äventyr och den andre: Exotism och det främmande i samtida svensk barnlitteratur2017In: Mångkulturell barn- och ungdomslitteratur: Analyser / [ed] Maria Andersson, Elina Druker, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2017, p. 181-197Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Otherness in contemporary Swedish children's literature is explored in Kajsa Gordan's and Mia Maria Güettler's picture book Kjelle åker till Indien [Kjelle travels to India] (2011), and Jakob Wegelius' Legenden om Sally Jones [The Legend of Sally Jones] (2008). The analysis considers how patterns of travel narratives may produce and reinforce otherness and exoticism as well as work as a means of decolonising otherness.

    The Double Aspect: Gerald Murnane's Visual Poetics2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With its abundance of maps, place names, and landscapes, and with titles like Inland and Landscape with Landscape, Gerald Murnane's fiction exemplifies the dominance of land in Australian literature. Yet, Murnane's fiction differs from most "landscape fiction" in that it depicts an Australia that despite its history of exploration has not yet been fully discovered. Murnane posits a vision of Australia as a place with a twofold character: it is throroughly mapped yet unexplored at the same time.

    Taking account of that twofold character, this study argues that Murnane's constant preoccupation with matters of vision and visuality is an attempt to flesh out a visual mode that could intimate the other Australia that has been overwritten by the imperial narrative. By investigating the complex interrelations bewteen the structures of vision/visuality and the figures of exile, landscape, and woman in Murnane's narratives, the study traces the emergence of a visual poetics of doubleness as a possible disturbance of colonial landscaping. The various doublings in Murnane's fiction create a gap through which a different perspective may emerge, a perspective that allows an (un)reading of the "Carteisan" gaze inherent in the imperial narrative. The duplication of vision can be understood as a counter-praxis that challenges the scopic regime of "Cartesian perspectivalism".

    In order to discuss the complexity of this doubleness, the study introduces the two-pronged concept of the double aspect, which denotes both the deconstructive move that enables the (un)reading, and the idosyncratic mode of representation that is at work in Murnane's fiction. Through the double aspect, Murnane's fiction fashions a visual poetics that enables a reconstitution of Australia as a site/sight for continuous re-viewing and rediscovery on an aesthetic plane.
