    A Case Study of a Distance Degree Program in Vietnam: Examples from a Learner-Centered Approach to Distance Education2013Ingår i: Cases on Professional Distance Education Degree Programs and Practices: Successes, Challenges, and Issues / [ed] Sullivan, Kirk; Peter E. Czigler; Jenny M. Sullivan Hellgren, Hershey, PA: IGI Global, 2013, s. 233-257Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The English Department at Högskolan Dalarna, Sweden, participates in a distance-learning program with the Faculty of Education at Vietnam National University. Students who enroll in this program are teachers of English at secondary or tertiary institutions, and will study half time for two years to complete a Master’s degree in English Linguistics. The distance program, adapted specifically to accommodate the Vietnamese students in terms of cultural differences as well as inexperience with distance methodology, is characterized by three design features: testing, technical training, and fostering a community of learners. The design of the courses also reflects a learner-centered approach that addresses common problem areas in distance education by promoting interactivity. Central to the overall program is the maintenance of different channels of communication, reflecting an effort to support the students academically and socially, both as individuals and members of a learning community. In this way, the effects of physical and cultural distances are minimized.

    English-language swearing as humor in Swedish comic strips2017Ingår i: Journal of Pragmatics, ISSN 0378-2166, E-ISSN 1879-1387, Vol. 121, s. 175-187Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I investigate the Swedish, non-native use of English swear words in Swedish-language comic strips. I first consider the established relationships between both swearing and humor, and comics and humor. I propose that swear word usage and the comic strip framework contribute to a mutual feedback loop, whereby the comic strip derives its humor from the use of English swear words, while at the same time the comic strip context, by invoking a play frame, primes the swear word usage for humorous interpretation. Modeling Siegel (1995), I then consider how a code-switch to English serves as a framing device or contextualization cue for humor in Swedish-language contexts. The analysis of a selection of Swedish comic strips draws from the Encryption Theory of Humor (Flamson and Barrett, 2008), and suggests that humor created via the Swedish practice of swearing in English is a function of shared background knowledge that capitalizes on the fundamental incongruity of two discourse systems operating under different norms of appropriateness.

    Snuff said!: Conflicting employee and corporate interests in the pursuit of a tobacco client.2015Ingår i: Digital Business Discourse / [ed] Erika Darics, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, s. 142-159Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter presents an analysis of intranet postings generated within a Swedish web consultancy during its pursuit of a tobacco company as client. Drawing from theories of crisis management, Beers Fägersten focuses on the emergent conflict and debate between employees who are in favor of having a tobacco company as a client, and those who are against it. The intranet thread reflects the use of discursive strategies typical of conflict management, but also strategies specific to the digital environment. A recurring theme in the debate is the navigation, negotiation and distinction of personal vs. corporate identities and interests.

    Teacher discourse and code choice in a Swedish EFL classroom2012Ingår i: Teachers' Roles in Second Language Learning: Classroom Applications of Sociocultural Theory / [ed] YOON, Bogum; KIM, Hoe Kyeung, Hershey, PA: IGI Global, 2012, s. 81-98Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, examples from classroom interaction are presented to illustrate how languagefunctions in and is influenced by the sociocultural setting of the EFL classroom. The chapterfeatures two distinct focal points: First, the predominant use of English by the teacher and theminimal use of English by the students are proposed as instrumental activities where English canbe considered a mediating semiotic tool. I suggest that English-language interaction in the EFLclassroom represents Vygotsky‘s concept of a social semiotic tool that is specifically related to aninstitutional context (Wertsch 1998). Conversely, the second focus of the chapter is on theinverse use of Swedish, which mainly features as the students‘ language of social speech and theteacher‘s language of regulatory, disciplinary discourse. The teacher‘s code choice and theestablished practice of code-switching thus serve to redirect the students‘ focus, either toengaging in the learning of English, or to behaving according to the institutional context.

    The role of swearing in creating an online persona: The case of YouTuber PewDiePie2017Ingår i: Discourse, Context & Media, ISSN 2211-6958, E-ISSN 2211-6966, Vol. 18, s. 1-10Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an investigation of the use of English-language swear words by Swedish, non-native speaker PewDiePie in the context of self-recorded, Let’s Play horror videos uploaded to the video-sharing website, YouTube. Situating PewDiePie within the greater media landscape to establish both his success and notoriety, this article addresses the local interpretation of the globalization of English and the use of English swear words in Swedish media. The practice of swearing in the gaming context is discussed, and swearing instances in a selection of three of PewDiePie’s horror game videos are analyzed. The article puts forth the argument that the use of English swear words contributes to the performance of PewDiePie as a specific, online persona, one that is both in line with the context of video gaming and conducive to a para-social relationship, allowing PewDiePie to achieve the overall goals of communicating with his viewers as peers and reducing the social distance between them. The article concludes that PewDiePie’s practice of social swearing not only simulates casual conversation between friends, but actively reduces social distance, creates the illusion of intimacy, and contributes to his unprecedented success on YouTube.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I present, analyze and consider the implications of the use of English swear words in Swedish media. First, I investigate the relationship between language and the media, focusing on the role of standard language forms in media discourse. I continue by exploring, within an Anglophone context, the use of swear words in the media. Next I present a brief survey of the use of English in Swedish. Finally, I present examples of the use of English-language swear words in Swedish media, showing how English-language swear words are appropriated by speakers of Swedish and suggesting that the use of English swear words in the media ratifies this appropriation, in turn establishing this practice as standard. I discuss the implications of this development in terms of the use of English swear words within a non-native speaker speech community, how usage may be in conflict with English native-speaker norms, and how the use of English swear words might come to characterize modern Swedish as well as a Swedish variety of English.

    Who's Swearing Now?: The Social Aspects of Conversational Swearing2012Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Who’s Swearing Now? represents an investigation of how people actually swear, illustrated by a collection of over 500 spontaneous swearing utterances along with their social and linguistic contexts. The book features a focus on the use of eight swear words: ass, bitch, cunt, damn, dick, fuck, hell, shit and their possible inflections or derivations, e.g., asshole or motherfucker, offering a solution to the controversial issue of defining swear words and swearing by limiting the investigation to the core set of words most common to previous swearing studies. The specific focus results in accurate depictions of contextualized swearing utterances. Precise frequency counts are thus enabled which, along with offensiveness ratings of contextualized and non-contextualized swearing, enable a clarification of The Swearing Paradox, referring to the phenomenon of frequently used swear words also being those which traditionally are judged to be the most offensive.

    The book revisits the relationship between gender and swear word usage, but considers the distribution based on the core subset of swear words, revealing similarities where others have claimed differences. Significantly, Who’s Swearing Now? considers the aspect of race with regards to swear word usage, and reveals behavioral differences between, for example, White and African American males and females with regards to word preferences as well as social impetuses for and effects of swearing. Questionnaire and interview data supplement the swearing utterances, revealing participants’ individual credos about their own use or non-use of swear words and, interestingly, about others’ allowed or ideally prohibited use of swear words. These sets of data present thought-provoking and often entertaining statements regarding the unwritten set of rules governing swearing behavior. Who’s Swearing Now? concludes with close analyses of four recent and highly publicized incidences of public swear word usage, considered in light of the spontaneous swearing utterances, speaker and addressee variables such as gender, race and age, and perceptions of offensiveness and propriety.

    Advances in swearing research: New languages and new contexts2017Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Any behavior that arouses, as swearing does, controversy, disagreement, disdain, shock, and indignation as often as it imbues passion, sincerity, intimacy, solidarity, and jocularity should be an obvious target of in-depth scholarship. Rigorous, scholarly investigation of the practice of swearing acknowledges its social and cultural significance, and allows us to discover and better understand the historical, psychological, sociological, and linguistic aspects (among others) of swearwords and swearword usage. The present volume brings together a range of themes and issues central to the existing knowledge of swearing and considers these in two key ‘new’ arenas, that is, in languages other than English, and/or in contexts and media other than spoken interaction. Many of the chapters analysed are based on large and robust collections of data, such as corpora or questionnaire responses, which allow for patterns of swearing to emerge. In other chapters, personally observed instances of swearing comprise the focus, allowing for a close analysis of the relationship between sociolinguistic context and pragmatic function. In each chapter, the cultural aspects of swearing are considered, ultimately affirming the importance of the study of swearing, and further establishing the legitimacy of swearing as a target of research.

    Contemporary Capitalism, Crisis, and the Politics of Fiction: Literature Beyond Fordism2019Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary Capitalism, Crisis, and the Politics of Fiction: Literature Beyond Fordism proposes a fresh approach to contemporary fictional engagements with the idea of crisis in capitalism and its various social and economic manifestations. The book investigates how late-twentieth and twenty-first-century Anglophone fiction has imagined, interpreted, and in most cases resisted, the collapse of the socio-economic structures built after the Second World War and their replacement with a presumably immaterial order of finance-led economic development. Through a series of detailed readings of the words of authors Martin Amis, Hari Kunzru, Don DeLillo, Zia Haider Rahman, John Lanchester, Paul Murray and Zadie Smith among others, this study sheds light on the embattled and decidedly unstable nature of contemporary capitalism.

    Knowledge in crisis: Cognitive capitalism and narrative form in Zia Haider Rahman’s In the Light of What We Know2018Ingår i: Journal of Commonwealth Literature, ISSN 0021-9894, E-ISSN 1741-6442Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I argue that Zia Haider Rahman’s In the Light of What We Know offers a suggestive but ultimately problematic interrogation of the link between knowledge and finance in the context of contemporary “cognitive capitalism” and the 2008 crisis. The novel’s almost fetishistic relation to knowledge, primarily represented by the narrator’s encyclopedic and relentless discursive presence, compounded with his insistence on a circumscribed and experientially detached narrative temporality, suggests a fundamentally evasive strategy. For all its complexity and stringency, “knowledge” functions as an ideological cover for a deeply political crisis, while narration itself signals a foreclosure of agency and responsibility which ultimately fails, exposing the limits of financialization’s own discursive justifications.

    Martin Amis’s Money and the crisis of Fordism2019Ingår i: Critique: Studies in Contemporary Fiction, ISSN 0011-1619, E-ISSN 1939-9138, Vol. 60, nr 1, s. 1-10Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article proposes a fresh contextual reading of Amis’s Money as a novel that engages the crisis of Fordism in the 1970s and 1980s. Critical attention has focused largely on its satirical examination of the Thatcherite ethos, but Money is also centrally preoccupied with the collapse of postwar capitalism’s institutional structures of inter-class coordination. As a result of this process, the social phenomenology constructed by the novel is not only defined by growing inequality and economic fetishism, but also by a pervasive sense of political uncontrollability over the accumulation process.

    Monstrous contemplation: Frankenstein, Agamben, and the politics of life2018Ingår i: Textual Practice, ISSN 0950-236X, E-ISSN 1470-1308, Vol. 32, nr 4, s. 611-628Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In his recent book L’uso dei corpi, Giorgio Agamben investigates the philosophical genealogy of his central concept of inoperosità through a reconsideration of the classical notion of chresis or ‘use’. According to Agamben, the latter points to an alternative constitution of human nature, one that would not be guided by a principle of necessary actualisation (energeia), would not exhaust itself in the realisation of an end (ergon), but would rather preserve its potentiality in a thoroughly non-subjective (‘contemplative’) relation of the body to itself. For Agamben, it is only through the recognition and mobilisation of this alternative foundation of the human, that the pervasive division of life (between natural and political, ‘bare’ and ‘autarchic’, zoe and bios) upon which modern politics is premised, can be overcome. In this article, I propose to read in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein an instructive rehearsal of these fundamental concepts, focusing on the possible meanings that the notion of monstrosity may acquire when placed against the backdrop of modernity’s commitment to energeia and its associated biopolitical mechanisms.

    I Have Read the Chapters, But I Do Not Remember: Factors Affecting Intake, Retention and Recall of New Information Among Swedish University Students2016Ingår i: INTED2016 Proceedings / [ed] L. Gómez Chova, A. López Martínez, I. Candel Torres, Valencia, Spain: IATED Academy , 2016, s. 504-509Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The affluence of information sources we currently experience due to economic prosperity of western cultures and modern information technologies seems to have, apart from its positive effects associated with the ready availability of information, some negative ones as well. These seem to be related to the counterproductive way students utilize these sources, which, in some cases, may hinder their progress, reduce the efficiency of the overall educational process, and render teachers frustrated due to their students not coming prepared to their seminars.

    Besides looking into factors affecting intake, retention and recall of new information among Swedish university students, which appear to be directly associated with the scarcity principle and perceived value of the information sources the students use, the paper also discusses their inability to deploy relevant cognitive and metacognitive strategies in the process of learning, the impact of exposure to a certain assessment, learning and grading culture, as well as possible solutions to the issue.

    Magnetic Book as a Recyclable Tool Used for Teaching a Foreing Language and Incorporating Principles of Language Acquisition Theories2014Ingår i: International conference The Future of Education, Florence, Italy, 12-13 June, 2014, 4th ed., Padova, Italy: Libreria Universitaria, 2014, s. 324-328Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Teaching English to children at an early age does not only prepare a breeding ground for early bilingualism/multilingualism but also facilitates language learning at later stages. The early introduction of English in the curricula of primary schools, which has recently become topical throughout Europe, also calls for the introduction of language-teaching methodology suitable for very young learners. Although there is currently a wide range of material parents and teachers have at their disposal that can assist them in improving their children’s and pupils’ linguistic potential, its amount may sometimes seem quite overwhelming. This can make the choice of the right activity rather complicated and thus the need for language-teaching aids that can be recycled several times arises.

    The paper focuses on practical examples of how a magnetic book can be used repeatedly to develop a young child’s language skills in their mother tongue or a second language and what methodology can be deployed in this respect that incorporates some of the principles of language acquisition theories. Special attention is being paid to behaviorism, Chomsky’s ideas, Vygotsky’s and Piaget’s interactionist approaches (fostering Zone of Proximal Development and Scaffolding), and connectionism as well as how these can be put into operation when one is working with the book.

    Making Home: Orphanhood, kinship, and cultural memory in contemporary American novels2014 (uppl. 1)Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Making Home explores the figure of the orphan child in a broad selection of contemporary US novels by popular and critically acclaimed authors Barbara Kingsolver, Linda Hogan, Leslie Marmon Silko, Marilynne Robinson, Michal Cunningham, Jonathan Safran Foer, John Irving, Kaye Gibbons, Octavia Butler, Jewelle Gomez and Toni Morrison. The orphan child is a continuous presence in US literature, not only in children’s books and nineteenth-century texts, but also in a variety of genres of contemporary fiction for adults. Making Home examines the meanings of this trope in the contexts of American literary history, social history and ideologies of family, race and nation. It argues that contemporary orphan characters function both as links to literary history and as figures around which authors can critique the limits of literary history, family identity and national belonging.

    Affect and Nostalgia in Life-Writing of the Polish Diaspora2015Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the affective landscapes of Poland, Canada, and the US in Eva Hoffman’s autobiographical account of her immigrant/exilic life in Lost in Translation (1989). Hoffman’s reputation as a writer and intellectual was launched with this autobiography. Hoffman left Poland for Vancouver with her Jewish family in 1959, when she was 13, and lived there until college in the US, where she made her career. She lives today primarily in London. Hoffman’s autobiography is divided into three parts, dealing first with Poland, then Canada, then the US. 

    Hoffman's text explicitly thematizes nostalgia. Hoffman affirms her nostalgia for her Polish childhood with a postmodern awareness. Though Lost in Translation has been celebrated for its self-reflexivity and its treatment of the links between language and subjectivity, some scholars have been highly critical of the “nostalgic” view of Poland. Hoffman's work is clearly invested in the dynamics and the affect of remembering and forgetting particular times and particular places. In this paper, I examine Hoffman's understandings of nostalgia, and of the affective landscapes with which she engages. Poland, Canada, and the US have powerful associations, but I focus on primarily on Poland and Canada, emphasizing the overlooked importance of Hoffman's Canadian years.  I am particularly interested in exploring how affect—defined roughly as “something that moves, that triggers reactions, forces, or intensities . . ., simultaneously engaging the mind and body, reason and emotions” (Berberich, Campbell and Hudson 314), and including the affect of nostalgia—is represented and textually communicated with readers. Thus, I look at the effects of Hoffman’s privileging of lyricism as a mode and mood for life-writing.

    Discovering the Past? Memory, Postmemory, and Affect in Autobiographies by Emilia Degenius and Lisa Appignanesi2016Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of postmemory has been advanced to account for some of the ways that the strong cultural and individual memories of trauma survivors impact on members of the next generation: their children. According to Marianne Hirsch (1997, 2012), post-memory generations have a special tie to history, which they “remember” through emotional and imaginative investment in the memories of others, whose stories, photographs, and day-to-day actions impart a strong sense of the life-changing, often life-threatening, circumstances they have lived through.

    In this paper, I explore the relevance and possible limitations of the concept of postmemory for two auto/biographical works written by women of the Polish diaspora: Losing the Dead (2006) by Lisa Appignanesi and Åka Skridskor I Warszawa (Ice-skating in Warsaw) (2014) by Emilia Degenius. Born about 10 years apart (1946 and 1955), the two writers have some similarities, including Jewish backgrounds, parental and personal experiences of anti-Semitism, and emigration from post-war Poland with subsequent fraught relations to the Polish language. Appignanesi, writing in English, has become a cultural commentator and author with an interest in memory and psychoanalysis. Degenius immigrated alone to Sweden in 1972, where she joined her sister, and she has become a practicing psychoanalyst and author of two autobiographical works in Swedish.

    The narratives of these women writers of the Polish diaspora straddle genres of autobiography, biography, family history, fiction, and memoir. In each account, the relationship to parental figures is of central importance. They each have double narrative strands, one that reconstructs the childhood past through the excavation of memory, and one that figures the adult narrator’s attempts to understand the past through return journeys to Poland, documentation, and interaction. I examine the texts’ formal and thematic characteristics in relation to postmemory.

    Indian Boarding School Gothic in "Older than America" and "The Only Good Indian"2015Ingår i: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 47, nr 2, s. 5-27Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the appropriation and redirection of the Gothic in two contemporary Native-centered feature films that concern a history that can be said to haunt many Native North American communities today: the history of Indian boarding schools. Georgina Lightning's Older than America (2008) and Kevin Willmott's The Only Good Indian (2009) make use of Gothic conventions and the figures of the ghost and the vampire to visually relate the history and horrors of Indian boarding schools. Each of these Native-centered films displays a cinematic desire to decenter Eurocentric histories and to counter mainstream American genres with histories and forms of importance to Native North American peoples. Willmott's film critiques mythologies of the West and frontier heroism, and Lightning attempts to sensitive non-Native viewers to contemporary Native North American concerns while also asserting visual sovereignty and affiming spiritual values.

    Regeneration through Kinship: Indian "Orphans" Make Home in Works by Linda Hogan and Leslie Marmon Silko2012Ingår i: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 43, nr 1, s. 103-120Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Literary representations of orphanhood immediately activate the question of community through kinship and relation. In simple terms, "orphan" is unthinkable without its opposite family or kin. The language of orphanhood and family has been central to the study of national American literature, but recently indigenous notions of "kinship" have been proposed as key critical tools for examining Native American literature. In readings of Linda Hogan's Solar Storms (1995) and Leslie Marmon Silko's Gardens in the Dunes (1999), I find that attentiveness to kinship focuses inquiry squarely on literary responses to the historical disruption of Native kinship networks, broadly conceived, but also to the state's creation of Indian "orphans" through various forms of child removal. These works employ the motif of the Indian orphan's return to place Native thought and culture in critical relation to Euro-American social, ethical, and environmental practices. While previous scholarship has examined the critiques of Western, colonial cultures in the works of Hogan and Silko, the importance of the orphan figure to these projects has been largely overlooked. The literary orphan, I propose, is a particularly complex site in contemporary Native fiction for narrative interrogations of the limits and possibilities for community.

    Suspect Survival: Matrophobia in Postmemory Generational Writing2019Ingår i: American, British and Canadian Studies, ISSN 1841-1487, E-ISSN 1841-964X, Vol. 33, s. 89-117Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Family and kinship carry special significance to Holocaust survivors and their descendants. In autobiographies and family memoirs, writers of what Marianne Hirsch terms the postmemory generation employ different narrative strategies for coming to terms with the ways in which the Holocaust has marked their identities and family ties. This article focuses on women’s writing of the postmemory generation, examining three works in English by daughters of survivors in the UK, the US, and Canada, written during the 1990s. It investigates the narrative strategies used by Anne Karpf, Helen Fremont, and Lisa Appignanesi to represent maternal sexual agency and vulnerability in a survival context. It suggests that these representations are strongly influenced by matrophobia and matrophilia, defined as the conflicting dread of becoming and desire to be one’s mother, which are themselves strongly conditioned by Holocaust history, particularly the gendered history of vulnerability among women in open hiding during the war.
