    "L'Art, expression de la Société, est précurseur et révélateur": The Heterogeneity of the Notion of "Avant-Garde"2010In: Codex and Code: Aestethcis, Language and Politics in an Age of Digital Media, NORLIT 2009, Stockholm, August 6–9, 2009 / [ed] Kerstin Bergman, Per Bäckström, Christian Claesson, Leif Dahlberg, Torbjörn Forslid, Carin Franzén, Anna Cullhed, Stefan Helgesson, Paula Henrikson, Jonas Ingvarsson, Anders Johansson, Christer Johansson, Cecilia Lindhé, Roland Lysell, Håkan Möller, Bengt Novén, Janina Orlov, Cecilia Sjöholm, Jenny Sundén, Magnus Ullén, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2010, p. 61-79, article id 6Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I shall try to shed some new light upon the notion of avant-garde, with the purpose of showing its different national use and heterogeneity of meaning. This pluralism is overlooked today because of the hegemony of English in academic studies, which leads one to believe that a consensus exists in the use of the term avant-garde, since so many academics write their articles and books in this language. This article, therefore, is an attempt to recuperate the notion of avant-garde to stringent use and gain a deeper insight into the aes-thetic movements of modernity and late modernity. I hope to show that, despite the fact that many writers believe that there exists only one recognition of the notion of avant-garde, the understanding of the Anglo-American centre is actually as peripheral as that of other coun-tries which are normally regarded as peripheries. Instead of retaining the logocentric dichot-omy of centre-periphery, an understanding of the heterogeneity forces us to realize that this dichotomy is of no value, since all understandings are equally peripheral when it comes to the notion of avant-garde in an international perspective

    “The Trumpet in the Bottom” : Öyvind Fahlström and the Uncanny: “Trumpeten i stjärten” : Öyvind Fahlström och det kusliga2017In: Edda. Nordisk tidsskrift for litteraturforskning, ISSN 0013-0818, E-ISSN 1500-1989, Vol. 104, no 2, p. 176-198Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Öyvind Fahlström (1928–76) began as a surrealist at the end of the 1940s, and among others wrote the unpublished poetry collection “The Trumpet in the Bottom”. In 1953, he wrote the world’s first manifesto for concrete poetry, inspired by Pierre Schaeffer’s musique concrète, and soon became a driving force in the Swedish and international neo-avantgarde. In the mid-1950s he turned to the visual arts, and later he also wrote radio plays, directed movies and arranged performances and happenings. He showed an extraordinary sensibility for the uncanny in his selection of “life material” for his art, thus uncovering the return of the repressed in everyday life and popular culture, in the form of scatology, pornography, the monstrous, the body, the materiality of the artwork and media, and so on. In his art, this uncanny life material was turned into political statements. In my article the discussion is exemplified from different genres of Fahlström’s œuvre, from his early texts and radio plays, to his visual art.

    Finsk sisu i svenskundervisningen: Om litteratururval, kulturell identitet och subjektiv relevans utifrån tre finskättade elevers upplevelser2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay focuses on Finnish immigrants living in Sweden and their experiences of educationof literature in Swedish upper secondary school. It concerns the fact of how education ofliterature can be used to strengthen students’ formation of cultural identity. The essay tries toidentify obstacles as well as possibilities in the teaching of literature with a view to deepenand enrich this process. The method consists of a phenomenological approach includinginterviews with a group of Finnish immigrants living in Sweden. The theoretical backgroundof this composition comes from various fields such as the didactic, literary and socialpsychology sphere. Keywords in the analysis have been cultural identity, subjective relevanceand deliberative democracy. The results have shown that the cultural contents as well as thecultural variety in Finnish literature taught in class are often experienced to be unvaried andstatic. The results have also exposed the danger of a homogenous cultural landscapeaccording to Jürgen Habermas’ ideas of the public sphere and post-colonial literary theorieson how cultural power is bound up with social power. The role of the Swedish teacher hasfurthermore been discussed in ways of how to interpret and understand curriculum and how tosupport and teach literature in aim to support identity process.

    Cinematic Ekphrasis and its Narrative Implications2013In: Emerging Vectors of Narratology: Toward Consolidation or Diversification?,Paris, 29-30 mars 2013 / [ed] John Pier, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the classical figure of ekphrasishas proved to be a very fruitful concept especially in the field of intermedialstudies. Theorists such as J. A. W. Heffernan, W. J. T. Mitchell, M. Kriegerand C. Clüver have contributed to the definition of ekphrasis, progressivelyenlarging its borders beyond the image-word relation. However, in Clüver’sdefinition of ekphrasis as the “verbalization of a real or fictitious textcomposed in a non-verbal sign system”, the focus remains on the verbal natureof the target medium. Following S. Bruhn, L. Sager Eidt and A. Pethö, we aim atquestioning this limitation by showing that the concept of ekphrasis iscritically viable even when the target is not verbal. Our examples will becases of cinematic ekphrasis, where energeiaand repurposing, two crucial aspectsof ekphrasis, both with narrative implications, are achieved by other meansthan only language. By doing this we join the post-classical narratologicaldiscourse and its increased interest in the question of narrative in non-verbalforms.

    Questioning ekphrasis by using eye-tracking technique2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, the classical figure of ekphrasis has proved to be a very productive concept especially in the field of intermedial studies. Theorists such as J. A. W. Heffernan, W. J. T. Mitchell and C. Clüver have contributed to the definition of ekphrasis, progressively enlarging its borders beyond the image-word relation. However, in Clüver‖s definition of ekphrasis as the “verbalization of a real or fictitious text composed in a non-verbal sign system”, the focus remains on the verbal nature of the target medium. Following S. Bruhn, L. Sager Eidt and A. Pethő, we aim at questioning this limitation. We propose to analyse ekphrasis as a case of intermedial relation (W. Wolf) between qualified media (L. Elleström), a relation in which enargeia (the vividness of the description, according to ancient rhetoric) and repurposing (a new purpose for the source medium in the target medium) play a distinctive role. On the basis of an empirical eye-tracking test (a technique for measuring the point of gaze of the viewer), which we have conducted on informants watching a film sequence, we intend to show that the notion of ekphrasis can be applied even outside the language medium.

    Teaching Climate change: Reading the Symbiosis Between Mankind and Nature in Ballard’s The Drowned World2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to examine J.G. Ballard’s The Drowned World to investigate how the relationship between humans and nature affects humanity, and whether humanity is indestructible. By performing an eco-critical reading of The Drowned World, the protagonist’s actions and choices on his journey are examined, as well as how they affect his partner, comrades and nature. In this process, the result was that a complete lack of conscious humanity is impossible as the basic human instincts linger. Furthermore, this essay provides didactical approaches to teaching this novel in an upper-secondary school classroom as well as insight into the many aspects of the novel, which are comparable to modern day society on terms of politics, globalism and environmentalism.

    Vampires in The Twilight Saga: The Reinvention and Humanization of the Vampire Myth2010Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to make a comparison and investigation between three popular vampire fictions, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire and Stephanie Meyer’s The Twilight Saga in order to show a development of the vampire. During the investigation it has become clear that the vampire over a decade has become an object that writers continue to reinvent and humanize. Concepts of Self and Other are thus important terms in this paper in the attempt to analyze the reinvention and humanization of the vampire myth. In Stoker’s Dracula, the vampire will be discussed from an Eastern and Western perspective where hence the vampire figures as an Oriental demon that in every way is the opposite from the British Empire. Rice’s novel, Interview of the Vampire shows a seemingly more humanized vampire that is less Evil, whilst Meyer’s The Twilight Saga demonstrates a vampire that is entirely human, however, with “special” abilities.

    Efter unionsupplösningen: Nation och genuspolitik i Hjalmar Söderbergs Den allvarsamma leken2019In: Edda. Nordisk tidsskrift for litteraturforskning, ISSN 0013-0818, E-ISSN 1500-1989, Vol. 106, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers issues of nationalism and gender politics in Hjalmar Söderberg’s 1912 novel The Serious Game [Den allvarsamma leken]. I focus on the depiction of the dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway that took place in 1905 in order to analyze the intersection of nation and gender in fin-de-siècle discourses of liberalism. Ellen Key (depicted in the novel as “Ellen Hej”) is a key figure not only in the period’s feminist debates but also as an activist advocating for the peaceful dissolution of the union. I focus on Key and Söderberg’s views of the nation as one stage in a progressive evolution towards a cosmopolitan community, as well as Key’s controversial sexual politics. Moreover, I show how the novel naturalizes heterosexual desire in the main character Arvid’s incurable desire for Lydia. I argue finally that the melancholy tone permeating the novel is a mode of expression for liberalism’s unfinished projects of emancipation for both women and the nation.

    World Expositions of Paris (1889 and 1900) and Chicago (1893 and 1933)2017In: Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism / [ed] Stephen Ross, London: Routledge, 2017Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The world expositions were monumental, public spectacles originating in the industrial fairs of early-nineteenth-century France and culminating in the Expositions Universelles of Paris (1889 and 1900) and the World’s Columbian Exposition (1893) and Century of Progress International Exposition (1933) of Chicago. The Great Exhibition of 1851 in London was among the first of the nineteenth-century industrial exhibitions featuring monumental exposition architecture with its cast-iron and glass Crystal Palace designed by Joseph Paxton (1803–1865). For cultural observers of the time as well as later critics, the Crystal Palace and later expositions – particularly the fin de siècle expositions held in Paris (1889 and 1900) and Chicago (1893) – exemplified the culture of mass consumption that had its origins in the bourgeois society of the nineteenth century. In The Arcades Project, Walter Benjamin (1892–1940) described the world expositions as ‘places of pilgrimage to the commodity fetish’ (7) in which workers were transformed into consumers through the mediation of iron and glass architecture. The American expositions of the 1930s intensified the massive displays of utopian expectation and technological progress on offer at the fairs with their exhibits of ‘dream cars’ and ‘houses of tomorrow’, monuments to Consumerism as well as science fiction visions of the future.

    “...så större kung och fagrare drottning har väl aldrig funnits till.”: Kvinnornas roll i fyra småländska folksagor2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    “...so greater king and more beautiful queen have possibly never existed.” The role of women in four folktales from Småland. I denna uppsats studeras fyra småländska sagor med fokus på de kvinnliga karaktärerna. Detta görs genom frågeställningen om hur de kvinnliga karaktärerna bryter mot de traditionella sagokonventionerna. Uppsatsen lutas framför allt på Propps teorier om sagans handlingsfunktioner, detta kopplas sedan till vilka roller karaktärerna får ta. Även Maria Ehrenberg används för att diskutera sagorna som manliga/kvinnliga utifrån teori av Bengt Holbeck. Viktiga teman framhävts i sagorna beroende på om de tar ett manligt eller kvinnligt perspektiv och vilka könet på de aktiva respektive passiva karaktärerna. Satu Apos studier om de kvinnliga karaktärernas roller i sagorna som onda eller goda används också. Folksagornas roll som muntliga diskuteras med hjälp av Walter Ong. Slutligen kopplas sagornas betydelse för barn genom Bruno Bettelheim och Satu Apo. I slutsatsen av uppsatsen belyses hur de kvinnliga karaktärerna i dessa exempel ofta är aktiva och starka, men även alltid i beroendesituation till någon av männen. Detta leder till att sagorna kan ses som förmedlare av förlagda könsroller, samtidigt som de fyra sagor som analyserats inte kommunicerar detta lika tydligt som exempelvis Disney gjort.

    The Boy Who Couldn’t Grow Up: En tematisk analys av döden i J. M. Barries drama om Peter Pan2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to analyse the thematic purpose of death in J.M. Barries play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up. Peter Pan, the Darlings and Neverland each get analysed in separate chapters, to get a fuller understanding of their relation to death. This has been done through the use of copingtheory, and comparisons to earlier myths about catabasis, Pan, and British changelings. Further support has been found through earlier works written about the subject, to deepen the understanding of death’s part in this play for children. The essay concludes that the children in the play are deathly ill – and thus Neverland and Peter Pan are representations of the afterlife, and a spirit which guides children on from this life in to the next.

    Dracula: Demons, Victims and Heroes: A Discussion of the 21st Century Feminine Reader Response2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Dracula was written by Bram Stoker in 1897 but in this thesis I will discuss the different interpretations that can be achieved using reader response theory.  More specifically how gender affects these reader responses.  It is a detail analysis of how a feminine reader with a 21st century perspective can achieve different reactions to the text than that of the previous masculine and patriarchal readings that have been common in the past. This approach to Dracula has shown in more detail how the current representation of vampires in our culture has come to pass.  Dracula was one of the first vampire novels, but it was by no means the last, and the current fascination with vampires is a direct result of ‘reading’ them in a feminine way. It shows how in Dracula demons, victims and heroes, with a new perspective, become tragic, misunderstood and patriarchal oppressors. Also that it is through an integration with the text itself and reading in a feminine way that we are able to see them that way.

    This essay argued the importance of literary theory in the classroom. As a teacher, it is possible to achieve the empathetic goals of the English curriculum and Judith A. Langer’s ambition of literate thinking by using poetry and literary theory in school. The essay demonstrated this with a Lacanian reading of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poems “To a Skylark” and “Ode to the West Wind.” The analysis focused on readable and unreadable aspects of the poems. The readable aspects centred on the role of the Imaginary in “To a Skylark” and the representation of the fragmented body in “Ode to the West Wind.” Furthermore, the unreadable elements of the poetry demonstrated the discrepancy between the performative and declarative dimensions and the role of the pathetic fallacy in the signifying chain.

    Finally, this essay argued that, although all aspects of psychoanalytic literary theory should not be used in the classroom, elements of Lacanian thought can be used to combat the prevalence of individualism in Swedish upper secondary schools.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay discusses my proposed collection of short stories. The aim has been to examine the texts in terms of form and thematics, and position of the texts in a social context. First I present the collection, and then look at the texts from stylistic angle. I have chosen to use the concept of descriptive style. I have picked out certain parts of my texts in order to see which effect they have on the reader (in this case I). I go on to describe the work process. Finally, I analyse why I have written the way I have, if I am satisfied with the result, and how the texts can be linked to a contemporary context.

    I am both satisfied and unsatisfied with the result. Certain things are good; others can still be improved. I have become more aware of thematics and my style while working on the essay.

    I need to delete certain over-explanations and comments from the narrator. I need to sharpen the approaches, streamline certain endings. In many parts, the short stories can still made more concise. The language can also become less paratactic. I should like to insert further short stories in the collection in order to create a counterpoint, preferably with female protagonists. I will also decide the order of the short stories to achieve the best-combined effect. Furthermore, I must reflect on about the title for each short story, and decide what name to give the collection.

    My texts relate to contemporary society and context largely by describing the disorientation of men in a time of new alignment, where old gender roles exist in parallel with entirely new ones.

    Abstract [en]

    The project “Book Dog and Astrid Lindgren” at Linnaeus University, Sweden, aims to bring children together with literature and to use dogs as a tool for this. The project seeks to arouse a desire to read by making it appealing, and to spread knowledge about children’s literature in general and Astrid Lindgren’s works in particular. It is geared towards children with difficulties in reading, writing, and speech, children with low motivation for reading, children who already find it fun to read and who are prepared to read more, and adults who are in contact with these children. The method involves the children reading aloud to a dog that makes no demands or judgements. The dog has a calming effect in a situation that is stressful for many children. The project is run in collaboration with the Swedish dyslexia association Dyslexiförbundet, the Hundsam association, and schools and libraries, primarily focusing on children aged between 6 and 13.
