    Bakhtin In Bits And Pieces: Poetic Scholarship, Exilic Theory, And A Close Reading Of The Disaster2017In: Slavic and East European Journal, ISSN 0037-6752, E-ISSN 2325-7687, Vol. 61, no 2, p. 278-298Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is an attempt to interpret Mikhail Bakhtin’s working notes in a new way, by reading them as instances of fragmented writing produced in exile during the war. To capture the specific way Bakhtin’s thinking reveals itself in a difficult relationship with writing, I read these pieces through the prism of critical categories suggested by Maurice Blanchot in his book The Writing of the Disaster (1980). By means of comparative reading of these two quite disparate authors, I hope to demonstrate that the very fragmentariness of Bakhtin’s writing, a well as its unfinished and ”un-worked” character, opens it up for critical reflection.  The fragments in question should be read as exilic theory rather than merely biographic data or preliminary materials that suffer, not surprisingly, from intellectual and writerly incompleteness. This essay also discusses ambiguities in Bakhtin the asyndetic writer (a stylistic trait especially difficult to solve in translation) as methodologically central for an understanding of his philosophy of history and language.

    Das blinde Kind: Lew Vygotskijs Defektologie als poetische und politische Allegorie2019In: Sehstörungen: Grenzwerte des Visuellen in Künsten und Wissenschaften / [ed] Anne-Kathrin Reulecke & Margarete Vöhringer, Berlin: Kulturverlag Kadmos, 2019, p. 85-105Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Early work by the Soviet psychologist Lev Vygostky was connected with the special education of the so-called "defective" children. Vygotsky constructed blindness, deafness, and other functional disorders in children as "defects"  in the social system that alienates them from the so-called normal people. In the chapter, I am analysing Vygotsky's representation of the blind child as a subject of proletarian revolution, and his method of psychological and pedagogical "correction" as an allegory of cultural revolution in general.

    Tusen motstridiga röster: Tvära kast, djupa tröstlösa lidanden, och extrema sinnestillstånd i noveller av Ulla Bjerne2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines four short stories- “Gudarnes like”, “Vänner”, “Lolo” and “Kvinnor” - in a novel called Upptäckter written by Ulla Bjerne in 1918. My aim has been to study whether Bjerne in these stories writes from a New Woman- position. The New Woman novel as a genre flourished around the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. I have also studied whether Bjerne in these short stories uses a melodramatic style. Drawing on arguments from, among others, Peter Brooks, Thomas Elsaesser and Richard Murphy, I have focused on the melodrama in her text.

    My conclusion is that Bjerne is talking about women’s struggle – the impossibility of a combination of work and love- and how the men are hopelessly behind. The aim to use melodrama could be that it works as a strategy, to make a strong criticism about certain times. My point is that by using melodrama Bjerne succeeds to picture a new subjectivity for women and she also succeeds to reflect the conflicts through women’s own experience. The theme is the same in all the four stories, but I have found that in only three of them, Bjerne is using melodrama as a tool. In one of them, she uses parody instead as a way of talking about the New Woman and her struggle.

    Verklighet, ej dröm, men vakna drömmar: En komparativ analys mellan August Strindbergs Ett drömspel och Sigmund Freuds Drömtydning utifrån ett idéhistoriskt perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Strindberg’s A dream play has been a heavily analysed and researched drama/phenomenon since its premiere 1907. This research has been primarily of a psychoanalytic or religious nature. In contrast, the aim of this essay is to compare and examine the use of dream symbolism and themes in Strindberg’s A dream play, and how it relates to Freud’s Interpretation of dreams. The analysis is based upon the notion that since these two books are products of, and influenced by, the zeitgeist of the early 1900s, and therefore, there will exist some similarities. The means/method used is comparative analysis, i.e. a thorough and detailed analysis of symbols discovered by reading the works in parallel. As a result of comparative analysis, it became evident that there indeed exists a shared and mutual dream definition/meaning, and common portrayal of the dream function/symbol, between Strindberg and Freud. Furthermore, this provides a deeper understanding/meaning of A dream playand increases its authenticity. Despite of the fact that there already exists plenty of research on symbols in A dream play, a comparative analysis provides new insight and perspective for dream symbols, which highlights what was written about the dream in the year 1900.

    KR’PTA: spår och ärrbildningar hos Johannes Heldén, Ingrid Storholmen och Anna Hallberg2005Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Trough the analyses of three young contemporary Swedish and Norwegian poets, who all in one way or another work with the language as material, I will circulate around the term language materialism. Each poet has his or her specific distinctive feature wich makes them three completely different poets. But they are all challenging the borders of literature and even the grammatical laws of language. Apart from the analyses I sketch an historical line between the predecessors of the experiments with the poetic language in the past, starting with Mallarmé, and the experiments of today. My essay will in conclusion discuss the language poetry in a wider philosophical point of view, connected to Derrida and Wittgenstein.

    The first analysis introduces the author and artist Johannes Heldén through his debute poetry collection Burner. Heldéns way of combining a rather abstract intellectual and theory based form with graffiti as the main topic, results in a both direct and deep questioning of the structures of language and text. Close to Heldéns theme I see the thoughts of the french thinker Jacques Derrida, who also becomes the main point of departure for my own analysis. An especially important source for me has been Derrida’s essay Schibboleth, which forms itself to an introduction to the deconstruction theory through a careful reading of the poetry of Paul Celan. In this book we find a few terms which have been valuable in contact with the three poets I´ve chosen for this essay. The terms are: Crypt, ashes, date and wound (in my analyses wound also transforms to scars and marks or tracks). The most important meaning of these terms are the way in which Derrida sees the written word as always included in a play of references and meaning. As soon as we arrange words on a piece of paper some of the words will start to point backwards in time, other will point towards the future and many will as well indicate several contemporary directions the moment they are written. Text is in this sense not metaphysics, it is rather included in a play of meaning. Significant is also how text is doomed to encrypt itself in a way that leaves a wound that insinuates that here lays a hidden meaning. Hidden and impossible to trace. Especially in my analysis of Burner these terms have been suitable. Heldén creates a world underground, below the train tracks, which hide a world of graffiti. The graffiti in the normal, outside, world are often fragmentated, sometimes even wounded by the hands of humans. The picture of the cave full of language becomes the main focus in my analysis. The second analysis deals with the latest poetry collection of the Norwegian author Ingrid Storholmen, Skamtalen Graceland. The leading feature of this book is Storholmen’s way of showing the language’s visuality using different fonts and formations as well as marking a few words so that a scarred text appears.

    The last analysis forms a close look at the poet Anna Hallbergs latest poetry collection På era platser. Hallberg has been a frontal figure for the genre of language poetry in Sweden. In connection to this analysis the thoughts of the early Wittgenstein becomes interesting, wherefore I also expand the discussion to include even some of his thoughts. The new and interesting point of view for the contemporary langauge focused poetry is the close contact to philosophy that manifests itself on the pages. Often it seems to me as if the poets of today wanted to contribute with a comment to the philosophical langauge debate from within the topic of the same debate, that is from the inside of poetry itself.

    The End of the World: Contemporary Philosophy and Art2017Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The 'end of the world' opens up philosophical questions concerning the very notion of the world, which is a fundamental element of all existential, phenomenological and hermeneutical philosophy. Is the 'end of the world' for us 'somebody's' death (the end of 'being-in-the-world') or the extinction of many or of all (the end of the world itself)? Is the erosion of the 'world' a phenomenon that does not in fact affect the notion of the world as a fundamental feature of all existential-ontological inquiry?

    This volume examines the present state of these concerns in philosophy, film and literature. It presents a philosophical hermeneutics of the present state of the world and explores the principal questions of the philosophical accounts of the end of the world, such as finality and finitude. It also shows how literature and cinema have ventured to express the end of the world while asking if a consequent expression of the end of the world is also an end of its expression.

    "Välsignad vare illusionen": Normer och ideal i Karin Boyes Astarte2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I analyze Karin Boye’s first novel, Astarte, focusing on her views concerning norms,ideals and female liberation. The novel is written in a tone of irony, allowing for many of thecharacters to be viewed as caricatures. The theories and methods I use are drawn from genderstudies and queer theory. Queer theorist Judith Butler, and the concepts of performativity, interpellation, genealogy and the heterosexual matrix, are of central importance for my analysis. I look at the hetero normative values, that Boye ironizes, which are sustained by performative processes. The normative and idealizing proceedings described by Boye are, in my opinion, such performative processes. I examine how Boye illustrates the creation of norms and ideals, their influence and how they spread. Boye lays much of the responsibility for the idealization and normativity on the consciousness industry. I consider the novel to be a form of gender parody, challenging the notion that gender is something that can be defined by certain characteristics. Butler is of the opinion that gender parodies expose the primordial identity that gender imitates as being in itself an imitation without origin.

    Identitet och berättande: i Oline Stigs Den andra himlen2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates how the author Oline Stig creates identities for her main characters in three short stories; Midsommar, Polly Maggoo and Den längsta dagen from the collection Den andra himlen (2007).

    My investigation is based on concepts chosen from psychology and narratology: First, Jonas Stier’s definition of human identity. In his definition he focuses on a person’s social context. He also considers identity formation as an ongoing, ever- changing process. Second, Gerard Génette’s and Maria Nikolajeva’s concepts concerning focalization and the perspective and voice of narration.

    My analysis tries to answer the question if the perspective of narration has any effect on the readers understanding for the characters’ processes of identity. I have found that other aspects than the perspectives of narration are more important in portraying a fictional character in these short stories. For example: in one of the stories - Polly Maggoo – narration is part of the identity forming process: the main character is influenced by and portrayed via the stories told by a friend, and later, via the stories she tells another friend about herself.

    The essay also contains a short presentation of Oline Stig and gives a view of the development of the short story-genre in the 1900`s.

    I psykets vildmark: En komparativ studie av Brott och Straff och Mörkrets Hjärta2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of analyzing Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness is to study the symbolic undertones of each work from a Jungian psychoanalytical perspective. My thesis revolves around the archetypical story of man versus himself, that is to say, man versus psyche: his own demons personified as a reflection of nature and therefore the environment.

    The bulk of the analysis is described using narratological tools. By doing a close reading report I compare how the inner processes of the two novels’ protagonists are presented, in both imagery and style, using Aristoteles’ terminology in accordance with Gerald Prince’s definitions. The Jungian model and the concept of the shadow archetype is put into play in correspondence with Aristotelian terms such as anagnorisis and catharsis, where the chosen point of view (or focalization) is also discussed in its relationship to the psyche, characters and setting.

    The analysis leads me to conclude that the discussed archetypical themes found in the novels are used to portray an essential part of human existence. A recognizable pattern arises once we delve into and reflect upon the encounter with the unknown darkness (or shadow) that eventually leads to a newfound wisdom (catharsis).

    Invisible avant-garde and absent revolution: Walter Benjamin's new optics for moscow urban space of the 1920s2018In: Actual Problems of Theory and History of Art, ISSN 2312-2129, p. 575-582Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Walter Benjamin spent the fall and winter of 1926-1927 in Moscow. His experience and observations were recorded in “Moscow Diary” and essay “Moscow” (1927). In the present paper, the author refers to the latter text, in which Benjamin reflected on the space of Soviet capital that was undergoing severe transition. Without even mentioning Avant-garde architecture that was being constructed in his presence and that was transforming the living space of the new state on all levels, Benjamin left deep analyses of Moscow's post-revolutionary urban constitution, revealed its nature, and predicted its future. Benjamin came to Moscow to observe the Revolution in action, but could not find it. Instead, he saw Constructivism as already dismissed. While recording those huge transformations that he witnessed during his stay, Benjamin had not described them either in terms of new functionalist architecture, or through the reflection on demolition of Empire's architectural symbols. He turned to other features and spatial dimensions that were not directly related to any particular architecture, such as mobility, rhythm, aura and through which he fully revealed reformation of Moscow space that was initiated by functionalists and supported by the new regime. The “Moscow” essay along with another text that I refer to, “Experience and Poverty” (1933), enable for deeper analyses of Avant-garde aesthetics, of its origin, development and end, which is the major objective of the present article.

    "Lite udda och inte riktigt som andra": en tematisk undersökning av hur utanförskap och identitetssökande som motiv skildras i Inger Edelfeldts romaner2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this study is to analyse how the main themes of alienation and the search for identity is portrayed by Swedish author Inger Edelfeldt. I have applied the theories of Rita Felski concerning feminist novels of self-discovery, in which the development of the female identity is the main question. As Edelfeldt’s writing consists of literature for the young as well as adults, I have included material from both of these genres. I have also taken use of Ulla Lundqvists theories about Swedish juvenile books when examining aspects of the main character’s feelings of alienation and identity searching.

    The results of my analysis show that the reading of my material as feminist novels of self-discovery has revealed pervading charachteristics of alienation, love, friendship and psychological development. The genre-crossing tendency of Edelfeldt’s writing shows in that the theme of identity crisis and the search for identity is an important issue in all of her novels, despite the protagonist’s age. Finally, I show in my study, that by rejecting the heterosexual love-story narrative, Edelfeldts novels put the woman’s own psychological development in focus.

    Aleksei Semenenko: Sergej Dovlatov’s Estonian Period: From “Hackwork” to Myth-Making

    Sergej Dovlatov as journalist is known to the readers as a character in hisbooks, specifically Kompromiss (1981) which is dedicated to his “Estonianperiod.” From 1972 to 1975, Dovlatov had been working as a regular reporterin the Soviet Estonian newspapers in Tallinn – Molodež Ėstonii and SovetskajaĖstonija. However, his actual articles have not been analyzed until now. Thefirst part of this paper is dedicated to the description of Dovlatov’s articlesthat have been published in these newspapers.The second part analyzes the structure of Kompromiss and elucidates themethod of Dovlatov, who constructed his book as a sort of “disclosure of thejournalistic hackwork.” The comparative analysis is used to describe themechanisms of myth-making and the creation of a special type of narrative inDovlatov’s book (“storytelling”). The paper shows how Dovlatov exploits thegenre of anekdot to reveal the phenomena of Soviet reality through grotesqueand ironic discourse.Finally, the paper attempts to elucidate two central strategies in Dovlatov’soeuvre: biography-making by means of literature and mythologization of reality.

    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.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    In The Passions of the Soul (1649) Descartes discarded the Stoic idea that affects are primarily to be dealt with from a moral framework through the application of reason. Instead, he considered affects and emotions neither as good nor bad, but as part of the “aesthetic machine” of the body and as aspects of the soul. What is new is not the concept that emotions, sensations, or affects can be conjoined to the acquisition to new knowledge. After all, this is what Aristotle argued already in the Poetics . What is new is rather the fact that Descartes defines this kind of knowledge in relation to modern epistemology. Revisiting the question of mind–body dualism, Descartes in The  Passions argues that affects may change both our perception of the world and our thoughts about it. The agitation of the mind is not necessarily detrimental to thought; on the contrary, it may enhance or refine  it. Arts that produce emotions allow us to experience new sensations that stimulate the mind. To this end, we need art and literature. By exploring how the theater, fables and poetry may evoke emotions, we can learn what passions are, what they do to us, and how they may serve to produce new knowledge.

    Att läsa Lispector med Cixous: Écriture féminine och Stjärnans ögonblick2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The essence of literature – it’s voice, it’s meaning– has always been scrutinized of interest to readers and theorists. The language in itself has the power to revolt against and undermine current and dominant hierarchies. This language can also be of a passive nature, accepting existing norms and dichotomies. This paper has the ambition to examine the language, the voice, of Clarice Lispector in her novel A Hora da Estrela (The Hour of the Star).

    The theoretical horizon from which I will read The Hour of the Star is that of Hélène Cixous, which can be expressed through the term écriture féminine. Écriture féminine suggests a way of writing that revolts against dominating hierachies and, at the same time, rewrites oppositions and dichotomies. This way of writing, whatever associations and delimitations it’s name will invoke, is not available for one sex only; the sex that this writing refers to is that of the text. Thus both men and women can express écriture féminine, and as Cixous says, Jean Genet and Franz Kafka are examples of this although Clarice Lispector is the one, in Cixous’ opinion, who best expresses this feminine writing.

    In my reading and writing I will focus on the meta-fictive element in A Hora da Estrela, I hope to show that this element operates in many different ways, on different levels. This I will achieve by exploring the way in which Lispector reveals the relation to the other; a text, a person, language, the subject. My thesis is that Lispector practices what Cixous theorizes. Another point I want to make is that Lispector expresses in opposition to describe. This is related to the close relation between writing and body, and in the end writing and reading. The relation between reading and writing is a question of the nature of the text and the essence of writing. The writing is in A Hora da Estrela described as a problematic venture, discussing the role of the author and the meeting with the other. This aspect goes as far as questioning the entire relation to tradition, gender, literary canon.

    In conclusion: The purpose is to do a reading of and with, both Lispector and Cixous, in order to find the essence and expression of écriture féminine in the novel A Hora da Estrela.

    Upplösning i staden: En studie av individ och struktur i Paul Austers City of Glass2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this paper is to analyse the relation between the spatial and individual structures in Paul Austers City of Glass. The interpretative discussion is focused on the novels metafictive aspects. The analyses consists that Quinn, the main character, is linked to the city environment because of his function as detective, flânuer and author. According to Baudelaire, Benjamin and Berman the two last positions are fundamental in the literary citystructure, as well as in the formation of individuality and modernity.

    “Tillvaron [...] vidgar sig”: Alberte – en Ny kvinna i genusomskapandets tid2005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the Alberte triology, by the Norwegian writer Cora Sandel, from a gender/feminist perspective. Taking Yvonne Hirdman's theory about the gender system as a starting point I will show how the living conditions and the different roles of men and women are represented in the novel and how they are changing during the centuries before and after the First World War.

    I am particularly interested in Alberte, the main character, what attitude she takes to her position in the gender system and in what way she differs from the traditional female model. Is she a New Woman, a different ”species”, who doesn't fit into the rigid gender system? Does the New Woman have a male counterpart, and is he to be found in the novel? Does the novel give a positive vision of a future where men and women can meet as equals?

    Den lärda kvinnans onaturlighet: En undersökning av mönster i porträtteringen av den lärda kvinnan i teaterhistorien2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is called The unnatural learned woman: an examination of patterns in the portraying of the learned woman in theatre history and it examines what patterns in the portraying of learned women that can be found in theatre history, by looking at a few selected dramatic plays, with a time span that goes from ancient Greece to the 1980s. The term "learned woman" includes women with knowledge that is comparable with educated knowledge, such as philosophy, science and mathematics, law, politics and so on, and knowledge that gives the woman social power, like wit or strategic thinking. I also discuss how the concept of knowledge is looked upon, and how eligible knowledge is a social construction, by using Foucault’s Power/knowledge: selected interviews and other writings 1972–1977. The plays I have read are the following: Antigone (442 BCE) by Sophocles, Medea (431 BCE) by Euripides, The Learned Ladies (1672) by Molière, True women (1883) by Anne Charlotte Leffler, Hedda Gabler (1890) by Henrik Ibsen and Top Girls (1982) by Caryl Churchill. Given the macro-historic perspective that I am using, it follows that I am not doing an in-depth survey that covers every part of the history, but rather a search for long-term trends or patterns that are used when establishing the learned woman in relation to prevailing gender structures. My theoretical question is the following: What patterns can be found in the portraying of "the learned woman" in the history of Western theatre, and what do they say about the connection between gender and knowledge and power and knowledge? I discuss the results of my analyzes in three aspects: the contrast of the "learned woman" and the "natural woman", the rise and fall of the learned woman and whether the learned woman is forced to start acting like a natural woman in the end of the plays.

    Läsarens interaktion med texten: en studie av hur läsarens uppfattning av texten påverkar meningsskapandet i absurdistisk dramatik2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines how the meaning of an absurd play may be affected by how the reader understands the text. To address this problem I have turned to Wolfgang Isers theory of reception. Primarily I have taken on that the creation of meaning comes about when the reader fills in blanks in the text. I have also used Martin Esslins work on the theater of the absurd. I have mainly studied his research on Harold Pinter. Based on these two theories I have suggested a interpretation model that focuses on the interaction between reader and text. The interpretation model contains how the reader analyses blanks through observing the wandering view alternatively understanding the implied reader. The interpretation model also discusses how the reader can fill in blanks by using the relationship between character and environment, the final junction, turning points and uncertainties. I tested this interpretation model on Harold Pinters play A kind of Alaska. In my ideation of the play I realized it was about the loneliness of ageing and changing. I used these results to evaluate the usefulness of the interpretation model.

    "En by är ingen lagård": en undersökning av människa/djur-relationen i Sara Lidmans Tjärdalen2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The intention of this study is to investigate the human/animal-relation as a power relation in Sara Lidman’s novel The Tar Pit (Tjärdalen, 1953). With regard to the contemporary theory of posthumanism and its critique of the centrality of “the human” in the humanities, the aim is to seek and produce more-than-anthropocentric knowledge. Using queer and feministic theoretical concepts concerning dichotomy and hierarchy voiced by Yvonne Hirdman, Val Plumwood, Greta Gaard and Ann-Sofie Lönngren, this study gets to grips with anthropocentrism as a structure of power. In literary scholarship animals are often expected to serve as metaphors, and thus, the possibility of animals signifying “actual” animals tend to be overlooked. This study’s objective is therefore, using a text interpretation modelled by Eve Kosofsky Sedgewick and a method proposed by Ann-Sofie Lönngren, to focus on the surface of the text.

    In the analysis of The Tar Pit it appears that animals is attributed “low status” in relation to the human and that the humans ascribe animals with instrumental value. The power relation between humans and animals in the novel is based on the split between “the human” and “the animal”, and also the notion that humans constitute the norm and are hierarchically superior. Furthermore the analysis show that transgressive activity between categories “human” and “animal” is illustrated as something wrong and the concept of “the animal” and “animality” is displayed as an imperative function in telling the story of The Tar Pit. Finally the analysis depicts examples of animal acts of resistance against the prevalent order of things.

    Våldets lockelse och islossning: En reparativ läsning av Selma Lagerlöfs Herr Arnes penningar med fokus på manlighet2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Selma Lagerlöf (1858-1940) is one of Sweden’s most well-known and prominent authors. The field of research connected to both her personal life and her body of work is certainly immense. However there are still gaps in the research concerning Lagerlöf’s social critique through her literature. Alongside her authorship she was active in the peace- and women’s movement, and particularly so in women’s suffrage. Simultaneously, as the women’s movement gained momentum at the turn of the 20th century, there was a domestic armament in Sweden. It was at this point when Lagerlöf wrote Herr Arne’s Hoard/The Treasure (1903).

    The purpose of this study is to examine the connections between manliness and violence in Selma Lagerlöf’s Herr Arne’s Hoard/The Treasure. This is achieved by means of reparative reading using gender theory from the Nordic historic masculinity studies. The reparative reading is based on a model of interpretation, first promoted by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, and is not about hidden meanings but rather what the text explicitly represents.

    The analysis shows that the text criticizes a certain fit for military service type of manliness. This particular manliness is characterized by self-interest and vindictiveness, which is tied to an archaic barbarity and social stagnation. At the same time it is connected to positions of power. The analysis also shows, through the critic, a feminine desire for justice, a movement towards change and the subversive potential of sympathy.
