    Aesthetic Unity and the Politics of Sameness in Clemens Brentano's Theoretical Writings2015In: Afterlives of Romantic Intermediality: The Intersection of Visual, Aural, and Verbal Frontiers / [ed] Leena Eilittä, Catherine Riccio-Berry, Lanham: Lexington Books, 2015, p. 95-112Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1811 and 1812 Clemens Brentano published two essays that seem to have almost nothing in common. Der Philister vor, in und nach der Geschichte is a political pamphlet, directed at contemporary bourgeois society, but it is also a disturbingly anti-Semitic text. “Erklärung der Sinnbilder auf dem Umschlage dieser Zeitschrift,” on the other hand, is an aesthetic text, dealing with such topics as symbolism, allegory, and mimesis. However, the Philister essay is as much a work on art as it is an ideological text, and “Erklärung der  Sinnbilder” addresses both political and aesthetic issues. The two texts have in common that they aim at unity: the unity of art and the unity of society. In other words, the idea of aesthetic unity is a political project as well, aiming at forming a unified society. The political and aesthetic unity is formed by means imitation, which enables Brentano to construct an ideal of sameness, that is, a paradoxical unity of similarity, identity, and difference. However, sameness means also the exclusion of the alien, of the Jewish in particular. Political and aesthetic sameness forms relations of identity between objects that are similar, thus excluding the dissimilar.

    Am Rande der Kunst: Arabeske, Ornament und die Heteronomie der Ästhetik Goethes2015In: Germanisch-Romanische Monatsschrift, ISSN 0016-8904, Vol. 65, no 2, p. 149-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay argues that the marginal aesthetic phenomenon of arabesque and ornament played a central role in Goethe’s aesthetic thinking since the classical age. As a point of transition, the arabesque establishes a functional link between the world and the work, which enables the leap from the world into art and which promotes the experience of art in a higher sense. The aesthetic economy of the arabesque, which through saving forms the backdrop against which the lavishness of the work of art appears, points to an implicit idea of aesthetic heteronomy in Goethe’s theory of art, a heteronomy that shows the true physical, social, and historical context of the work.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how the experience of reproductions – drawings, copperplate engravings, woodcuts, lithography, plaster casts, and so forth – influenced Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s conception of art in general and his descriptions of art (e.g., ekphrases, reviews, and autobiographical accounts) in particular. Well acquainted with the technologies of reproduction of his time, Goethe, often in collaboration with Johann Heinrich Meyer, acknowledged the crucial role of reproductions for the understanding of the productive idea of the original work. Experiences of reproductions and comparisons between copies, drafts, and the original enabled Goethe to grasp the idea as an ever-transforming productive constant of the continuous process of becoming of the work

    Grenzerfahrungen: Studien zu Goethes Ästhetik2018 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [de]

    Die Goethezeit fällt mit der Geburt und Konsolidierung der Ästhetik zusammen, die von den Idealisten und Romantikern als einheitsstiftendes Zentrum des Denkens konzipiert wurde. In diesem Zuge formulierten sie auch ein neues Verständnis der Autonomie des Kunstwerkes und des Künstlers, das für den heutigen Diskurs über Kunst gültig geblieben ist. Das vorliegende Buch hingegen sucht die Grenzbereiche des Ästhetischen dieser prägenden Jahre der Ästhetik auf, um den unsicheren Zustand ihrer Entstehung zu untersuchen. Johann Wolfgang Goethe beeinflusste durch verschiedene Rollen, als Autor, Künstler, Beamter, Herausgeber und Inspirator, die Gestaltung der Ästhetik. Er thematisiert in seinen Schriften immer Fragen der Grenzen des Ästhetischen. In fünf Kapiteln, die sich der ästhetischen Erfahrung, dem Symbolbegriff, der Ästhetik der Arabeske, dem Ziel der Preisaufgaben und der Beschreibungskunst Goethes widmen, untersucht das Buch die Beweglichkeit der Grenzen eines noch nicht definierten Diskurses.

    Kommunikativ ambivalens i Joel Petterssons Måndagsmorgon2011In: Avain - Kirjallisuudentutkimuksen aikakauslehti, ISSN 1795-3790, E-ISSN 2242-3796, no 3, p. 38-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In my paper I investigate the presence of communicative ambivalence in Joel Pettersson’s story Måndagsmorgon (Monday Morning), which was written in great haste in 1921 and published posthumously in 2004. The story cannot be seen as a unified work, rather, it is a sort of an amalgamation of autobiography, myth, and anecdote. The communicative ambivalence of the story is detectible in the tension between oral narration and written narration, a tension that is materialised in what I label Petters­ son’s writing. The term “writing” suggests the style of the work in a very concrete sense and includes motifs, themes, vocabulary, orthography, syntax, handwriting, and the visual appearance of the handwritten manuscript. On one hand, Pettersson’s frequent use of dialectal words and syntax simulates oral language. On the other hand, the story displays a great fascination with written language and the act of writing as such. However, written language and simulated oral language respectively undermine each other, engendering a form of writing that is essentially ambivalent. This is visible in how Pettersson writes his text: its uninterrupted, unedited, and inconsistent flow of words indicates the presence of, and a conflict between both oral and written language.

    The Alienated Form of Nature: The Critique of Imitation and Aesthetic Knowing in the young Goethe's Aesthetic Writings

    This essay examines the transformation of the concept of mimesis (imitation, Nachahmung der Natur) in the theoretical writings of the young Johann Wolfgang Goethe and its implications for the conception of aesthetic knowing. The Sturm und Drang period in general and Goethe, the period's most influential writer, in particular are usually regarded as skeptical about or even hostile to the classicist ideal of imitation. In this essay I argue that Goethe's conception of mimesis is closely related to his idea that nature is not immediately represented in art. Imitation of nature is the result of a process of alienation, which transforms nature into an aesthetic object. It is only in this transformed state, as "inner form" (innere Form), that nature is available to man. Furthermore, this notion of imitation as alienation points to the profound change that epitomizes epistemology in the late eighteenth century, that is, the transition from the classical episteme of representation to the modern, organic episteme.

    Ofullbordade utopier: tyskspråkig litteratur från tre århundraden2016 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vår begeistring av texter är, det menar den österrikiska författaren Ingeborg Bachmann, egentligen en begeistring av det vita, oskrivna bladet, alltså av "en brist som är så stor att den sporrar oss att handskas med litteraturen som en utopi". Utopin som en estetisk erfarenhet av något ofullbordat och något som inte kan fullbordas går som en röd tråd genom de läsningar av Herder, Schlegel, Novalis, Hölderlin, Musil, Mann, Celan, Szondi, Bachmann och Jelinek som är samlade här. Hos dessa gestaltas det utopiska som ett ständigt någon annanstans och någon annan tid, en icke-plats i tid och rum.

    Abstract [en]

    Since the birth of romantic criticism with Mme de Staël’s De l’Alle- magne and Heine’s Die romantische Schule, Romanticism has been con- strued as either a progressive movement, the fulfilment of the tenden- cies articulated by Enlightenment, or a reactionary phase, preoccu- pied with subjective emotions rather than with the objective reality and embracing the irrationality of Sturm und Drang. The tendency in recent research is to focus on the progressive nature of Romanticism, which is seen as the continuation of the radical ideas of Enlighten- ment and the German response to the French Revolution. Romanti- cism is no longer construed as the break with rationalism, but rather as the transformation of it or the synthesis of rationality and irration- ality. In the field of aesthetics, on the other hand, the conception of Romanticism as anti-classical, anti-enlightened anti-mimetic prevails. Mimesis and poiesis are, according to this line of argument, mutually exclusive. Interestingly, the progressive interpretation coincides with the reactionary, which construes romanticism as a break with Enlight- enment and, consequently, as a break with mimeticism. In aesthetics, then, romantic reactionism and the narrative of modernity paradoxic- ally concur. To advocates of progression as well as of reaction, imita- tion constitutes a problematic relation of dependence between subject and object, a relation that undermines the autonomy of both subject and art, which is central to the idea of bourgeois modernity.

    Den älskande kvinnan i Shakespeares dramatik: En dramatikanalys av dramerna Othello och Romeo och Juliet med fokus på Desdemona och Juliet2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essay The loving women in Shakespeare’s dramas is based on the fact that the dramas are performed circa 400 years after they were written. That makes it intresting to examine the caractars, and especially the female parts, and particularly the loving woman. To fulfill that, I have inquired Desdemona in Othello and Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. I have used eight parts of the drama analysis modelled by Birthe Sjöberg as the main research methode. The scientific aim is to investigate the loving woman in two plays of Shakespeas dramaproduction, Othello and Romeo and Juliet. The question at issue is, how does the female parts in Shakespeare’s tragedies looks like when it comes to the loving woman?

    The research questions are – how are Juliet and Desdemona allowed to act? How does their love look like? How do they act? How are they as persons? What are important for them? When you investigate Juliet and Desdemona, you reach their husbands as well, so they become a part of the analysis. Are Juliet and Desdemona shaped by conventions, free will or by nature? These questions are discussed with help of Judith Butler’s theory of socialconstructivism.

    Desdemona and Juliet are both very loving and free to act. Both are very beautiful and Desdemona is much appreciated as a person. Desdemona is happily married until Jago enters the scene and demands revenge because of a post he didn’t get. Romeo and Juliet are happy together but theire families destroy for them. Desdemona and Juliet are shaped by their genus that their surroundings force upon them. Both women act upon the constraints they face. Desdemona trys to obey and Juliet plays dead to escape the marriage with Paris. The analysis shows that the female part is oppressed by the culture of honour and by social circumstances as the family feud in Romeo and Juliet. Love does not survive and triumph over oppression. The patriarchate wins over emancipation, especially in Othello. Desdemona is strangled by her husband Othello and therefor she is a victim of patriarchate. The men also suffer from the patriarchate, their love can’t be free and they also die in the end.

    "Mörkret har förebådats med mörker": En läsning av tomheten i Christine Falkenlands Blodbok2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis has two purposes: (1) to analyze the emptiness in Blodbok by Christine Falkenland, and (2) to analyze my own reading of the same book. I have chosen to focus on how emptiness is expressed through the body, the language and the place in Blodbok, because of the deep impact these seem to have on the emptiness. The thesis discusses what kind of emptiness that is described, what it does to me as a reader, and how it is connected to other works by Falkenland. Cultural politics of emotions by Sara Ahmed, Uses of literature by Rita Felski and Pouvoirs de l’horreur by Julia Kristeva together form the theoretical framework.

    Blodbok is a poetry collection, about the loss of a mother. The first part of the thesis shows how emptiness is connected to the borders of the body. When the borders of the body are solid, emptiness is expressed trough the I’s will to pass these borders, to become a part of the mother or at least less lonely. When emptiness surround the I her body becomes indistinct and borderless, which makes the emptiness take place both inside and outside the body. The indistinctness of the body also leads to confusions between the body of the mother and the body of the daughter (the I), which also implies an uncertainness about the limit between life and death. This uncertainness becomes ‘sticky’, and I experience my own body being more borderless than before, and threatened by the death in the same manner as the bodies in the book. Emptiness also takes place as a part of the language in Blodbok, because of its inability to describe the feelings of the I. Though, in what I have called the simple language, for example clichés, the I find a way to express some of the despair, loss and fear that she feels. As a reader I find it very releasing when the I manage to express the emptiness in words. Even if loss is described I feel satisfaction while reading, because I recognize myself in the feelings of the I. I find the text being a witness to a horrible feeling and by functioning as a witness the poem moves the feeling from inside of me, to the outside. The place in Blodbok is connected to emptiness by being the place where life meets death. It is in this place the I circulate, and the emptiness and death is described again and again through the circulation. The place becomes the centre of the book, it is at the same time the beginning and the end. The thesis also shows how the emptiness in Blodbok corresponds to emptiness in other works by Falkenland.

    The emptiness is Blodbok isn’t empty; it is filled with death, horror, loneliness, love, mourning and loss. This emptiness ‘sticks’ to me as a reader. By picturing an in many ways indescribable emptiness, Blodbok manages to give me a feeling of satisfaction, a feeling of being filled.

    Äckellust: En läsning av Eva Sjödins Gränsland utifrån Julia Kristevas teori om abjektion2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Gränsland is a poetry collection by the poet Eva Sjödin. One distinct theme among others in Gränsland is repulsion and attraction, disgust and fascination in interaction. There is also a direction inwards and towards something. This essay is an attempt to analyse this theme. I will apply Julia Kristevas theory on abjection, a theory that explains these contradictory feelings and movements of the subject. The first part of the analysis is about how abjection is expressed through the ego in situations concerning eating, sickness and hunger and the colour red. The last part shows how the text itself expresses abjection, and becomes abject, through its explicitness and repetitive form.

    Det fiktiva paret Ignace, en hjälpande hand för en normkritisk undervisning: En queerteoretisk närläsning av Frida Stéenhoffs novell Ett sällsamt öde med en didaktisk utgångspunkt2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this paper is to use an older belletristic litterature, like in this case Ett sällsamt öde by Frida Stéenhoff and do a queer theoretical analysis of the short story and then discuss the didactical implications the short story and my reading of the short story can have in the Swedish school and the work to active counteract discrimination.

    I have designed three questions who can answer my purpose with this paper. The following questions are:

    - How do Mikael and Ethel challenge the heterosexual standard?

    - How can the important breakfronts in the short story be comprehended and explained by the queer theory?

    - What in my reading of the short story can be actualized as relevant in the didactic field?

    The method I have used to answer these questions is a queer theoretical close reading of the short story. I have been able to use this method with the help of the queer theoretical perspective as my thesis and concepts such as Butler’s perfomativity and Foucault’s categorizing and exlusion are important concepts in my analysis and result. The conclusion I have been able to reach is that the short story Ett sällsamt öde actually is a story that can be used in the Swedish school and the work to actively counteract discrimination. With the queer theoretical perspective as my basis I have been able to find four different aspects that I consider important for the story itself but also to discuss with the students in school. These four aspects are Mikael Ignace’s identity, his suicide and Ethel’s psychological state and her way back to the nursing home as she herself once upon a time was admitted to. These four aspects challenge the heterosexual state and can from a queer perspective interpreted as Frida Stéenhoff’s figurative metaphors for a more comprehending society. With these aspects to my help I want to use queer pedagogy with my students to show them that norms, categorizing and similar aspects are constructions built by human beings and therefore are able to be critically examined and that they are changeable.

    Familj, moderskap och incest i Så länge vi båda andas: En queerteoretisk temastudie av Stephenie Meyers Så länge vi båda andas2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines in what way the heterosexual matrix is challenged by Stephenie Meyer in Breaking dawn (Så länge vi båda andas). By doing a thematic study on the various family constellations appearing in the novel, I search for the queer elements in it. I discuss incest, family building and motherhood, and find that there are numerous queer elements associated with the themes I have chosen. I conclude that the Cullen family challenges the heterosexual matrix, despite not being typical queer vampire characters. I also find that building a successful family is not based on gender or constellation otherwise, but is instead dependant on democracy and equality. Bella has a desire to taste the blood of both her daughter and her father, interpreted as an incestuous desire. I find similarities between Bella’s extreme motherhood behaviors and how drag show artists parody gender.

    Frankenstein; or, the trials of a posthuman subject: An investigation of the Monster in Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" and his attempt at acquiring human subjectivity in a posthuman state2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley and the characters within, tell a prominent story of the posthuman condition in a society where humanist thought is the only conception of subjectivity. The use of not only posthuman studies, but more specifically studies including subjectivity was needed, in order to analyse the relationship between the humanist and the posthuman subjects. Theories of posthuman subjectivity and subjectivity by Rosi Braidotti and Michel Foucault were used in order to examine the posthuman condition of “Frankenstein’s monster” and the role of humanist vs. posthuman subjectivity between Victor Frankenstein and the monster. The tension between Victor and the monster was analysed in order to investigate the monster’s struggle at acquiring subjectivity in a posthuman state, which revealed why it is impossible for the humanist and posthuman subject to peacefully coexist.

    The Crisis of Identity in a Multicultural Society: A Multicultural Reading of Zadie Smith’s White Teeth2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay, on Zadie Smith’s White Teeth, deals with the characters’ identities and the influences of multiculturalism on their complex identities. It also discusses the role of the characters roots and history in constructing their identities and how they have made life problematic for the characters in multicultural London. The roots and history of the first generation of immigrants make problematic identities for the second generation in the novel. The main aim of this essay is to demonstrate the instability of identity as depicted in the novel. The characters in the novel cannot ‘’plan’’ their identities because it is a process which continues in all stages of life. Though the first generation of immigrants want to ‘’plan’’ an identity for their children (the second generation of immigrants), they are not successful. Because identity is a process and it is changeable based on place and time. The second generation of immigrants, who live in London, tries to mix the dominant culture (English culture) with their familial culture in order to have a different identity. They also want to escape from their family’s roots and history but it is difficult, because leaving roots is not an easy process.

    Stellectric: En studie om modernistiskt blivande i utvalda dikter av Mina Loy2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My essay is an examination of the poet Mina Loy and two poems that are essential in her authorship, these poems also represents a thematic entrance to Loys life and literary concepts. On the basis of Gunnar Harding preface and translation of selected poems from the collection Lunar Baedeker, I have chosen to look further at the poems Lunar Baedeker and Songs to Joanne, poems that accommodate contexts of an esthetical and linguistic complexion.

    Using terminology from the philosopher Gilles Deleuze as method for analysis, enabling an examination which proceeds from the concepts of nomadism, deterritorialization and line of flight. In the consideration of Loys modernistic and woman –becoming, a situational and relational context is introduced which includes references to feminism, cosmopolitism, futurism, modernism, Dadaism as well as to acquaintances of Gertrude Stein, Djuna Barnes, F.T. Marinetti and Isadora Duncan. My examination of Loys “Baedeker” describes a travel guide which turns out to be disorientation in the spatial and temporal, through history and tradition, a guide that’s devoted to the form and the artistic autonomy. A map over the modernistic landscape, in a contemporary and in a subject comprehension that is drifting. Through the abandonment of a representative parlance and a by evolving it through its line of flight, Loy calls for a development of the language and for an altered state of mind.

    "... som om varje tonfall bävade av dold rörelse...": Om debutsamlingen Från Skåne av Victoria Benedictsson ur ett maskulinitetsperspektiv2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to examine how men is portrayed in three short stories, ”En omvändelsehistoria”, ”Far och son” and ”Jeppa”, from the debut Från Skåne by Victoria Benedictsson. I also investigate the ideas of masculinity during the 1880s. Unmanliness, paternity and manly tears are other concepts that I have been examining with close–reading as the method. The essay begins with a short recap of the earlier research about Benedictsson. Her debut as well as the perspective of masculinity on the work of female authors has been almost ignored by the academic sphere and my aim was to do something about it. Firstly, I discuss unmanliness in the peasant culture, secondly, paternity and absence and thirdly, unmanliness and manly tears. My result shows that the different ideas of masculinity affect the characters in many ways. For example, the elderly in the stories mostly falls down in unmanliness. I have come to the conclusion that the fear of being unmanly urge the men, or the boys, to act manly and follow the ideals.

    Ett hermetiskt förseglat universum?: Om självrepresentationen av autism i paret Newports gemensamma biografi Mozart and the Whale: An Asperger's love story2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to examine how autism and self-representation is portrayed in the couple Jerry and Mary Newport’s memoir, Mozart and the Whale: An Asperger’s love story (2007). The analysis of the memoir raises two key terms of importance for the purpose of the essay, the concepts of aesthetic nervousness coined by Ato Quayson and the figure of the sentimental savant which has been formulated by Stuart Murray. Another central discourse was articulated by Jenny Bergenmar: That autistic biographies are characterized by a tendency to incorporate narrative about self-awareness, acceptance and the capability to agency as a strategy to escape the objectification of non-autistic readership.

    What emerges in the analysis is that the experience of living within the autism spectrum involves a form of suffering, though also an opportunity for agency, which is what is evident in the self-representation in the Newport couple’s joint biography. Other autistic voices that convey stories of their inability to reach agency have been excluded from the biography and thus ultimately excluded from a discourse of what it means to have autism. And above all it becomes apparent that to be able to act as an autistic in the world requires a different form of self-centeredness than the one that is normatively attributed to the autistic condition, namely self-love.
