    "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.

    The American Film Musical Genre Today: A New Breed or Just More of the Same?: The Development of the American Film Musical 2000-20132014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since the introduction of synchronized sound at the end of the 1920s the film musical has had a special place in American film. But even with that special place the interest in the film musical has varied a lot during the 20th century. From the high interest during the  “Golden Age” in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, through low interest in the following decades and then renewed interest in musicals with the animated film musicals from Disney in the 1990s. But what has happened after the millennium? Has there been any development in the American film musical genre or is it just more of the same? This thesis tries to answer the question by analyzing three successful film musicals from the period 2001-2013, Moulin Rouge! (Baz Luhrmann, 2001), The Phantom of the Opera (Joel Schumacher, 2004), and Les Misérables (Tom Hooper, 2012) and comparing them to classical traditional musicals. According to this thesis there is a split answer, some areas of the classical  American film musical have developed while other areas still remains the same.

    Tid för film: Introduktion av konceptet diegetisk tid genom en jämförande analys av filmerna The Magnificent Seven och The Wild Bunch.2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Filmer, texter och andra former av beskrivningar skildrar både den tid de beskriver och den tid då de produceras, både medvetet och omedvetet. För att analysera och jämföra dessa båda berättarnivåer i filmer krävs tydliga metoder och effektiva verktyg. Begreppen diegetisk tid, icke-diegetisk tid och meta-diegetisk tid introduceras i uppsatsen som verktyg för att förenkla och effektivisera analysarbetet och presentationen av tid i och kring film. Som stöd för användningen av begreppen analyseras och jämförs två västernfilmer som producerades under perioden från mitten av 1950-talet till slutet av 1960-talet. De två filmerna som analyseras är The Magnificent Seven (7 vågade livet, John Sturges, 1960) och The Wild Bunch (Det vilda gänget, Sam Peckinpah, 1969).

    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”.

    Men hur skriver jag?: Analys av novellen ”När hedningen kom till byn”.2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of my thesis is to examine my authorship by making an analysis of my short story ”När hedningen kom till byn”. The literary language and its placement in contemporary literature is what I focused on while examinating.

    My analysis consists of overviews of the genres in which I think my short story fits: magical realism, Swedish northern literature and horror literature. Analyses of other authors’ essays in these genres have been done, as they influence the story in different ways. Constructive criticisms from my fellow students and supervisors have improved the examination.

    The result of the investigation of the genres shows whether I have used their different characteristics and markers or not. It also presents where the text remains in relation to other contemporary authors. The analysis of the writing process reveals the strengths and weaknesses of the text.

    I reached the conclusion that the genre of my short story varies, depending on the perspective with which it is read. Another conclusion is that, although I have followed some of the traditional writing patterns in each genre I have my own distinctiveness when it comes to creating, writing and designing a text.

    Multilevel poetry translation as a problem-solving task2016In: Cognitive Semiotics, ISSN 1662-1425, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 139-147Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Poems are treated by translators as hierarchical multilevel systems. Here we propose the notion of 'multilevel poetry translation' to characterize such cases of poetry translation in terms of selection and rebuilding of a multilevel system of constraints across languages. Different levels of a poem correspond to different sets of components that asymmetrically constrain each other (e. g., grammar, lexicon, syntactic construction, prosody, rhythm, typography, etc.). This perspective allows a poem to be approached as a thinking-tool: an 'experimental lab' which submits language to unusual conditions and provides a scenario to observe the emergence of new patterns of semiotic behaviour as a result. We describe this operation as a problem-solving task, and exemplify with Augusto de Campos' Portuguese translation of John Donne's poem 'The Expiration.'

    Semiosis is cognitive niche construction2019In: Semiotica, ISSN 0037-1998, E-ISSN 1613-3692, Vol. 2019, no 228, p. 3-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Here we describe Peircean post-1903 semiosis as a processualist conception of meaning, and relate it to contemporary active externalism in Philosophy of Cognitive Science, especially through the notion of cognitive niche construction. In particular, we shall consider the possibility of integrating (a) the understanding of “semiosis as process” within Peirce’s mature semiotics with (b) an elaboration of the concept of cognitive niche from the point of view of niche construction theory and process biology research.

    Are we even watching the same film?: A reception study of The Square2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the differences regarding thereception between American and Swedish reviews of the Swedish film, The Square (2017, Ruben Östlund). It explores whether or not their differences and similarities reflect different cultural contexts. By analyzing twelve reviews, six from each country, and using a qualitative analysis and reception studies as a theoretical foundation, the thesis have looked at what impacts our cultural understanding of a film like The Square. Janet Staiger’s theories on different type of readers (such as coherent readers, ideal readers, misreaders and competent readers) have also been brought to discussion. Furthermore, four themes have been identified as constantly present throughout the reviews, and they are: modern times, political correctness, the art world, and the disconnection from others. I have compared these themes with each other in order to approach the differences and similarities between the reviews in both countries. The conclusion is that the reviews differ due to what type of reader the reviewers are, and if they are willing to go beyond their cultural framework to try to understand the cultural context, displayed in the film. The thesis is also written from a post-structural perspective, awknowleding how each interpretation says something essential about the themes in the film

    Silvermaktklockan2019Student paper other, 20 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Power watch (Silvermaktklockan) is a novel for children between 9 and 12. The main character is the 10-year old boy Valter who has an issue with time. Valter lives with his parents and a younger sister, Wilma. 

    The story begins with a complicated morning when a lot of distractions and anger makes it difficult for Valter to get to school in time. Valter thinks school is boring and meaningless, but his best friend, Oscar, makes it easier. Oscar understands him. Valter and Oscar lives in the same house. 

    A few days later, Valter and Wilma visits their grandmother. In her attic, Valter finds a watch. Valter likes it very much and ”borrows” it. The watch probably belonged to Valter’s late grandfather.

    In school a few days later, Valter and Oscar discovers that the watch can slow down time. Valter is delighted because it helps him win time. 

    But he becomes more and more addicted to the ”power watch” and the surrounding world becomes more and more suspicious. Valter’s grandmother becomes ill and Oscar warns him, says he has to stop using the watch. The illness might depend on the disturbed time. But Valter can’t stop using the watch, and it ends up in a fight between him and Oscar. Oscar’s nose is bleeding and Valter runs home.

    Valter finds his grandfather’s notebook and after he’s read it, he meets a neighbor, Blomberg, who is a watchmaker and used to know Walter’s grandfather. It turns out there are two watches, one in silver and one in gold. The one in gold compensated for the lost time and that watch is in Blomberg’s home. Now, Blomberg steals the silver watch from Valter.

    Later the same evening, Valter’s sister Wilma visits Blomberg, takes the two watches and throws them from the balcony. She tells Valter that she liked him better before he started using the watch.

    In the end, Valter feels a kind of release. The addiction to the clock has become a burden. 

    In school, he gets a blue-haired pupil assistant who makes his days easier.

    Berättandets utformning i transnationell actionfilm: komparativ studie av en kinesisk och amerikansk storproduktion2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper means to examine a Chinese language blockbuster in comparison to an American counterpart. The point is to examine the cultural differences and similarities in two similar stories produced in two different production environments. Two films that display both remarkable similarities and differences due to their respective cultural context of production. Here David Bordwell’s narratological schematics is applied to investigate how a Chinese film using a similar approach to Hollywood storytelling differentiates itself. In conclusion, the storytelling and plot construction are slightly less sophisticated in the Chinese film, and the reliance on computer generated imagery plays a bigger part than the physical performances usually associated with Chinese language action-cinema. The result of this study also highlight the differences in the depiction of the detective character and the analysis also raises the question of how we could attribute the cultural differences that emerges in this analysis.

    Abstract [sv]

    I följande text avser jag att analysera Man of Tai Chi och undersöka förhållandet mellan Kina och Hollywood. Kina blir en alltmer viktig marknad för filmbolag från Hollywood och hur de förhåller sig till varandra på film.Kung fu-filmens spridning har inneburit andra kulturella uttryck, från Bruce Lee som symbol mot imperialistiskt förtryck i tredje världen, till att bidra med formande av nya bildsspråk i filmer som The Matrix. Hur kan en transnationell samproduktion mellan kinesiska och västerländska bolag se ut? I följande uppsats undersöker jag produktionsförhållanden och mottagande av filmen Man of Tai Chi och i slutsatsen kommer jag fram till att filmen misslyckats ur ett kommersiellt perspektiv.

    The Book Dog and Semiotic Resources in Envisionment Building of a Text World2019In: Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, ISSN 0090-6905, E-ISSN 1573-6555, Vol. 48, no 2, p. 535-550Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Linnaeus University project “The Book Dog and Astrid Lindgren” seeks to bring children and literature together and to use the dog as a tool for this. The method involves children reading aloud to trained dogs, called book dogs. By studying the practice of the book dog, we seek more profound knowledge of the importance of the reading practice for children’s reading. Such knowledge can have didactic implications for reading practices also in contexts where there is no book dog. In the study reception theories (Langer in Envisioning knowledge.Building literacy in the academic disciplines, New York, Teachers College Press,2011a; Langer in Envisioning literature. Literary understanding and literature instruction, 2nd ed., New York, Teachers College Press,2011b) are developed with perspectives of discourse analysis (Fairclough in Discourse and social change, Polity Press, Cambridge,1992). and social semiotics (Halliday in Language as social semiotics. The social interpretation of language and meaning, Edward Arnold, London,1978). The result shows that the dog contributes with semiotic resources in the meaning-making process; the text world comes to life for the child through the expanded envisionment building where the dog is central. Since pupils read texts in all school subjects, the study should be relevant for all types of teachers when shaping reading practices that support pupil’s meaning-making, also in contexts where there is no book dog. The study can also say something about what engagement, attentiveness, and non-judgemental attitudes can mean for pupils, even they in reading and writing difficulties (Bergh Nestlog and Ehriander 2016).

    Codex and Code: Aestethcis, Language and Politics in an Age of Digital Media: NORLIT 2009, Stockholm, August 6-9, 20092010Conference proceedings (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the conference was to develop the study of Comparative Literature through Nordic collaboration both in its own discipline and in Modern Language and Cultural studies. As the title for the conference suggests, the principal question for the conference was the challenge that the study of literature encounters in an age of digitalization and globalization. It was our aim to encourage discussion of how literary studies respond to the ongoing changes in media and technology, politics and economy. Many have argued that the Humanities currently are in a state of crisis. We believe that the discipline seldom has found itself in such an interesting and fruitful historical moment. Several of these questions have surfaced duringearlier media system changes, in particular during Romanticism and Modernism, which provided the conference with an historical frame. The conference Codex and Code also addressed questions of authenticity and originality, identity and gender, literary genres and reading practices, media and materiality, culture and popular culture, language and history, world literature, work aesthetics, translations, and canon formation.

    Att se det stora i det lilla: Representationen av antropocen i Barbara Kingsolvers roman Flight Behavior2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Barbara Kingsolver’s novel Flight Behavior (2012) describes the impacts of climate change in a realistic contemporary setting. This thesis analyses the representation of the anthropocene,  the epoch in which human impact on the planet's ecological systems are significant, in Flight Behavior from an ecocritical perspective. The main themes focused upon are climate change, biodiversity and the relationship between human and nature in an anthropocene context. Social and economic contexts, such as economic inequality, of the anthropocene, as well as competing climate change narratives, are also examined.                      

    In the thesis I offer readings and interpretations on multiple temporal and spatial scales. This methodological approach is inspired by Timothy Clark’s multi-scalar analyses in Ecocriticism on the Edge (2015). The result of the study shows that an intentional focus on multiple scales, results in a reconsideration of what is important in the text. The analysis also shows that even if Flight Behavior is situated in a specific time and place, the narrative contains numerous connections to other spatial and temporal points of reference. Moreover, my multi-scalar reading of Kingsolver’s novel shows how intertwined the concepts of nature and culture are in an anthropocene context.

    Evigt liv till varje pris: En posthumanistisk tematisk studie av Don DeLillos roman Zero K2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to analyse the posthuman themes in Don DeLillo’s novel Zero K (2016). The themes focused upon are death in a posthuman context, and the creation of a new kind of human being. From a critical posthumanist perspective the novel’s underlying critique of contemporary society is also identified and analysed. The result of the study shows that Zero K can be read as critical towards the uneven distribution of wealth in the world, the strong focus on individuality in our current society and the lack of genuine discussions regarding the ethical implications of bio-technical advances.

    'Mom might have a job (or be socializing too much!)': 'The right to love', children’s sexuality and parenthood2017In: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, E-ISSN 2042-7905, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 13-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Having been unavailable for many years, the Swedish film Rätten att älska (‘The right to love’) was restored by the Swedish Film Institute in 2013 and made accessible for research. In many ways a typical example of the sex education film genre of its time, the film is simultaneously unusual because it deals with children’s sexuality. This article explores and discusses the representation of children in the film in relation to how it connects to issues of parenthood.

    Realism or 'grotesque cliches'?: Jan Halldoff's The Corridor and the Swedish debate on abortion in the 1960s2019In: Journal of Scandinavian Cinema, ISSN 2042-7891, E-ISSN 2042-7905, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 117-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish filmmaker Jan Halldoff's fiction film Korridoren (The Corridor) premiered in 1968 to a mainly positive Swedish reception. Shot at Karolinska Hospital and criticizing the Swedish healthcare system, the film became much debated and can furthermore be seen as a turning point in Swedish film history regarding the portrayal of medical institutions and professionals. In this article, the film and its reception are analysed in relation to the Swedish debate on abortion at the time. While the film is clearly critical of Swedish welfare society, the way it depicts abortion is more conservative. Highlighting this as well as the role of actual medical professionals in the film, the article demonstrates how the film relates to representations of abortion in the past and discusses connections between the film industry and medicine at this historical moment.
