    Journeys Within: The Contemporary Spiritual Autobiography2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An introspective quest narrative that bridges theology and literature in tracing the stories of authors who move from states of confusion, dejection, or loss to insights or epiphanies of spiritual revelation, from conversion to deconversion or from deconversion to conversion, the contemporary spiritual autobiography belongs to an as yet understudied genre of autobiographical writing. Shining an analytic light on individual texts placed within a broad spiritual perspective, this study offers an illumination of the genre of spiritual autobiography itself while relating it to understandings of the role of religion and spirituality in our time.

    Special Issue on Life Writing2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The articles brought together in this special issue of Ravenshaw Journal of Literature and Culture on Life Writing are examples of social, therapeutic, and emotional life writing which can be described as ‘healing literature.’ All the contributions in this volume, whether they treat historical life writing or contemporary experiences, offer readers elements of events lived mainly in India, but also in the USA and Europe. The contributions published here are made by researchers from all over the world and propose analyses of narratives that are varied in thematic approach, from pain and illness narratives to narrations of lived religion (Dalit, Buddhism, Bhakti spirituality, Hinduism, Christianity), and in theoretical underpinnings (Foucault, Gilmore, Merleau-Ponty) and genres (journalism, autobiography/autofiction, poetry). The variety of themes, backgrounds, contexts and analytical approaches to texts from India, the USA, Europe and beyond allow both the experienced researcher to conduct in-depth readings and the neophyte a window into the exciting and ever-evolving field of life writing.

    Living Language, Living Memory: Essays on the Works of Toni Morrison2014Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1993 Toni Morrison was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Nobel committee described her work as “characterized by visionary force and poetic import [that] gives life to an essential aspect of American reality.”

    Twenty years later, a group of scholars met in Stockholm to commemorate and celebrate Morrison’s award, and just as importantly, to critically engage the wealth of scholarship that has sprung up around Morrison’s work—both the six novels recognized by the Nobel committee and those works of fiction and criticism published in the two decades afterwards.

    The essays in this collection implicitly and explicitly take up Morrison’s clarion call to vivify language. They engage her words by elaborating on their meaning, offering readings of her literary texts that highlight their intertextuality, their proliferating conversations with other texts and contexts, and even other languages. In some, Morrison’s words give life to authors no longer with us, in others we are encouraged to resituate her writing in unfamiliar contexts in order to highlight the multiplicity of meanings generated by her work. The essays offer rich testimony to the life-giving properties of Morrison’s language and seek to contribute to the ongoing afterlife of her work by adding to the scholarly conversations animated by her extraordinary literary career.

    Writing the Self: Essays on Autobiography and Autofiction2015Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent discussions of autobiographical writing have led to a new terminology (autographies, autre-biographies, nouvelle autobiographie, autofiction, faction, égolittérature, circonfession), and current approaches to autobiography and autofiction suggest that this literary field offers a renewal and even a revolution of life-writing. Exploring autobiographical expression from different perspectives, the thirty essays in this book were presented at an international conference held at Södertörn University in 2014. As the essays in this anthology suggest, literary critics and authors alike are rethinking autobiographical writing and its definitions. Through the variety of papers, this anthology offers a thought-provoking overview of different approaches to autobiography and autofiction.

    Collusion and resistance: Women writing in English2002Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Coming out of a collective teaching project at the English Department at

    Södertörn University College in Stockholm, Sweden, this anthology treats works of women writers spanning from the eighteenth century to the present day and includes chapters on Virginia Woolf's appropriation of the essay form, American road novels from the 1940s to the present, and studies of present-day writers, for instance Angela Carter's carnivalesque fiction, Alicia Ostriker's hermeneutic method and Toni Morrison's discourses on love.

    Many of the genres which these works represent, such as parody, science fiction, the picaresque, the road narrative and the essay, have traditionally been male. This volume explores the potential for feminist critique offered by these genres, critique of patriarchal ideologies as well as formal features, and demonstrate how gendered hierarchies are unsettled but not entirely transcended. Thus the resistance against traditional genre properties creates new spaces for women writers, while the collusion with existing forms inscribes these women writers in the literary tradition at large.

    Together with the students engaged in this project, the scholars represented in this anthology have embarked upon a conceptual voyage of discovery. One stop on this journey is Flemingsberg Station, the train station adjacent to Södertörn University College, situated in the midst of a multi-cultural community and in itself an image of appropriation and change.

    Abstract [en]

    Shining a light on responsive and responsible reading practices, postcolonial forms of magic realism, democratic epistemology, demonized others, the others of the others, critical insiders and subaltern voices, metonymic cross-writing and cultural criss-crossings, papers in this anthology engage with issues of empowerment and disempowerment, tensions between modernity and tradition and ideas of development and progress as connected to understandings of race, gender, caste, subalternity, and religion.

    Notions of America: Swedish perspectives2004Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Americanization is sometimes seen as a unilateral and undesirable invasion of cultural influences and products originating in America. This anthology suggests instead that, although countries in Europe receive, adapt, and transform American products, images, or symbols, we also leave much aside along with a real sense of the historical and cultural complexity of a nation like America.

    It is this complexity that Notions of America: Swedish Perspectives wishes to point to, with scholarly essays on Americanization, American history, and American literature presented at an international American Studies conference held in the English Department at Södertörn University College.

    This anthology offers a variety of learning opportunities and a chance to sample the work of scholars across a number of subject areas. Challenging all of us to venture beyond the borders of our own disciplines, moreover, these essays invite questions about what we do as academics, compelling us to think deeply about our profession, our educational aims, our personal commitments, and how aims and commitments are inevitably rooted in social and political networks.
