    Vem, hur, vad och varför?: En narratologisk analys av Stephen Kings skräckroman Dimman2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essays content is about a narratological analysis of “The Mist”, written by Stephen King, with a focus on who, how, and what in relationship with the story. It also contains a deeper analysis on chosen characters and the meaning behind them. The analysis also takes a look on why King has chosen to use them and their specific details.

    By mainly using Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan and Jimmy Vulovic I manage to find the voice of the story, how it’s told and what it contains. There is a deeper meaning behind the details that King has selected for his story, for example the colors is not randomly chosen but have a point and a deeper sense behind them. The characters all have a meaning, big and small. The three main characters becomes pillars of the story where they give it and eachother balance with the ir significant roles as hero, villain and helper. It also turns out that the extraterrestrial beings are not the biggest threat of the story, the humans are.

    Begärets politiska potential: Feministiska motståndsstrategier i Elin Wägners Pennskaftet, Gabriele Reuters Aus guter Familie, Hilma Angered-Strandbergs Lydia Vik och Grete Meisel-Hess Die Intellektuellen2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation investigates the way that feminist resistance is expressed in two Swedish and two German so-called New Woman novels from the turn of the twentieth century: Elin Wägner’s Pennskaftet (1910, Penwoman), Gabriele Reuter’s Aus guter Familie (1895, From a Good Family), Hilma Angered-Strandberg’s Lydia Vik (1904), and Grete Meisel-Hess’s Die Intellektuellen (1911).

    The theoretical apparatus is comprised by the work of Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Jacques Lacan, and Jessica Benjamin. By introducing a psychoanalytic and feminist perspective, this dissertation seeks to develop the possibilities for agency and resistance within the framework of Foucault’s theories. It investigates four textual and contextually grounded strategies of resistance that are prominent in these novels: individuality, openness, desire, and eugenics.

    This study demonstrates how Gabriele Reuter, Grete Meisel-Hess, and  Hilma Angered-Strandberg, inspired by the ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche and Ellen Key, depict feminine individuality in relation to a scientific and philosophical discourse that specifically denied women individuality. The authors anchor individuality in a corporality that was similarly denied to women by a bourgeois and dogmatic Christian discourse.

    Openness and wit function as resistance strategies in Elin Wägner’s Pennskaftet. Humorous rejoinders and narrative comments can disarm a conservative. An open attitude towards the emancipation project could also help to resolve the conflicts between different feminist positions and between different women.

    Desire functions as an important resistance strategy in each of the novels examined. It is variously represented as a vital instinct, a desire for knowledge, and a sexual desire, as in Gabriele Reuter’s Aus guter Familie – or as a desire for suffrage, as in Pennskaftet, or for maternity legislation, as in Grete Meisel-Hess’s Die Intellektuellen. By formulating a notion of feminine desire, turn-of-the-century feminists were able both to seize control of sexuality from the church and to wrest morality from the grasp of the bourgeoisie. These resistance strategies could also have a biopolitical character: in Grete Meisel-Hess’s Die Intellektuellen, woman is placed at the service of humanity on eugenicist grounds, and her good qualities are seen as capable of promoting humanity’s progress.

    This dissertation shows that in these novels desire at the individual level serves to reinforce feminine subjectivity. Love is seen as associated with an intensified sense of life and as a precondition of creativity. At the social level, desire also functions as the basis for a feeling of solidarity among women that instils in them courage and an urge to persevere in the suffrage struggle, this latter a highly protracted process. In this way desire acquires political potential.

    A framing chapter on context provides the intellectual and philosophical backgrounds of the various strategies of resistance. It is followed by four analytical chapters, each of which addresses one novel.

    Alien Places in Late Soviet Science Fiction: The "Unexpected Encounters" of Arkady and Boris Strugatsky as Novels and Films2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation deals with how science fiction reflects the shift in cultural paradigms that occurred in the Soviet Union between the 1960s and the 1970s. Interest was displaced from the rational to the irrational, from a scientific-technologically oriented optimism about the future to art, religion, philosophy and metaphysics. Concomitant with this shift in interests was a shift from the future to an elsewhere or, reformulated in exclusively spatial terms, from utopia to heterotopia.

    The dissertation consists of an analysis of three novels by the Strugatsky brothers (Arkady, 1925-1991 and Boris 1933-2012): Inspector Glebsky’s Puzzle (Otel’ U pogibšego al’pinista, 1970), The Kid (Malyš, 1971) and Roadside Picnic (Piknik na obočine, 1972) and two films Dead Mountaineer’s Hotel (Hukkunud alpinisti hotell/ Otel’ U pogibšego al’pinista, Kromanov, 1979) and Stalker (Tarkovsky, 1980).  The three novels, allegedly treatments of the theme of contact with an extraterrestrial intelligence, were intended to be published in one volume with the title Unexpected Encounters. The films are based on two of the novels.

    In the novels an earlier Marxist utopia has given way to a considerably more ambiguous heterotopia, largely envisioned as versions of the West. An indication of how the authors here seem to look back towards history rather than forward towards the future is to be found in the persistent strain of literary Gothic that runs through the novels. This particular trait resurfaces in the films as well. 

    The films reflect how tendencies only discernable in the novels have developed throughout the decade, such as the budding Soviet consumer culture and the religious sensibilities of the artistic community.

    Motståndets akustik: Språk och (o)ljud hos Peter Weiss 1946–19602014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores how language is thematized in a selection of literary texts written in Swedish and German by Peter Weiss between 1946 and 1960. The textual interpretations seek to establish how Weiss’s literary work forms a multifaceted reflection on language and its cultural, historical and material preconditions. The various literary conceptualizations of language in Weiss’s texts are shown to be intimately linked to historical processes, where early postwar Germany plays a crucial role as a contextual framework. The study demonstrates how the texts explore an acoustic dimension of language, where non-articulatory sounds and noises oscillate between two poles: they either pose a threat to the narrator, or form a promise of a future emancipatory linguistic expression beyond a territorializing and violent language. Furthermore, the study argues that the sounds and noises permeating Weiss’s literary work form a soundtrack of past violence haunting the present. Finally, this soundtrack is shown to undermine a German postwar literary discourse that postulates a historical break after the Second World War (Stunde Null) as well as a new German literary language cleansed of Nazi contamination (Kahlschlag).

    The study draws its theoretical framework mainly from research concerned with mono- and multilingualism in literature, as well as from intermedial studies examining the interaction between literary texts and other artistic media such as the visual arts and music.

    The material examined in the study consists of six short stories in Swedish published between 1946 and 1953 in the literary journals 40-tal, Prisma and All världens berättare; the prose manuscript “Der Vogelfreie” (1947), later published as Der Fremde. Erzählung (1980); as well as the “micro novel” Der Schatten des Körpers des Kutschers (1960). Aside from these literary texts, Weiss’s documentary film Enligt lag (1957) and his feature film Hägringen (1959) are also analyzed.

Vaasa 12.-13.2.2015 / [ed] Daniel Rellstab & Nestori Siponkoski, Stockholm: University of Vaasa , 2015, Vol. 4, 16-24 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Der vorliegende Beitrag untersucht den Lyrikband notes for soloists (2009) der transnationalen Lyrikerin Cia Rinne mit einem besonderen Schwerpunkt auf der Frage der literarischen Vielsprachigkeit und der Intermedialität des Textes. Mit Ausgangspunkt in Naoki Sakais Verständnis von Übersetzung als bordering (Sakai 2009) wird die Rolle des Lesers von notes for soloists als Erzeuger sprachlicher Grenzen hervorgehoben. Hierbei funktioniert Rinnes mehrsprachiger und intermedialer Text als eine Art Partitur, die Leser verschiedener Sprachkompetenz auf unterschiedliche Weise realisieren. Es wird veranschaulicht, wie die Dynamik zwischen dem gedruckten Text und den verschiedenen artikulatorischen Möglichkeiten des Textes die Leser in eine Sphäre zwischen Sonorität und sprachlicher Artikulation versetzt; eine Sphäre, die normalerweise kleinen Kindern, die noch keine Sprache beherrschen, vorbehalten ist. Dabei wird die Kontingenz sprachlicher Grenzen ins Auge gefasst, zugleich werden jedoch auch mögliche Verbindungen zwischen verschiedenen für die Leser unbekannten bzw. bekannten Sprachen vorgeführt.

    Abstract [ru]

    Оригинальность повестей о муми-троллях не вызывает сомнения, и, тем не менее, эти тексты вполне можно рассматривать в ретроспективе долгой традиции философии гуманизма. Книги Туве Янссон рассказывают о «ситуации человека» таким образом, что это внятно и взрослому читателю, и читателю-ребенку. В мире муми-троллей ценятся вещи простые и обыденные, его обитатели весьма невелики, а все грандиозное и патетическое вызывает скорее иронию, чем восхищение.

    Во второй книге цикла о муми-троллях мы знакомимся с философом Ондатром. Муми-папа, гостеприимно пригласивший Ондатра внутрь, тут же оказывается под впечатлением от радикально пессимистической философии своего гостя, отрицающего все сущее в мире. В то время как молодые обитатели Муми-дола — Муми-тролль а Снифф,  — не разделяют мрачного взгляда на мир, а Муми-тролль и вовсе полагает, что Муми-дол является «лучшей долиной на свете».

    Этот контраст наивности и пессимизма позволяет вспомнить повесть Вольтера «Кандид, или Оптимизм», вышедшую в свет в 1759 г. Написанный за 200 лет до появления муми-троллей, этот текст, тем не менее на взгляд автора статьи, имеет вечно общее с повестями Янссон, и, возможно, обращение к образу вольтеров¬ского героя позволит более пристально вглядеться в муми-тролля.

    När känslorna får ta rodret: En läsning av John Fowles Den franske löjtnantens kvinna som postmodernt melodrama2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is first and foremost an exploration of the melodramatic themes in John Fowles The French Lieutenant’s woman. By defining melodramatic plot events and analyzing the novels postmodern narrative as a melodramatic element in its own right, this study’s purpose is to explain what makes the reader react in a specific way – Or more specifically: feel alienated by the books narrator.

                         

    Throughout the study, I’ve analyzed specific melodramatic examples in The French Lieutenant’s Woman; Its multiple endings, the meta-fictional narrator and its characters and connected them to the melodramatic genre and sensibility in an attempt to define the reader’s emotions towards a seemingly unconventional narrative.

    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.

    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.

    The Noise of Multilingualism: Reader Diversity, Linguistic Borders and Literary Multimodality2017In: Critical Multilingualism Studies, E-ISSN 2325-2871, Vol. 5, no 1, 208-235 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article proposes a new multimodal approach to literary multilingualism, with special attention devoted to how readers with different language skills partake in making literary multilingualism happen. It presents a critical assessment of previous scholarship on literary multilingualism, which we claim is characterized by monolingual assumptions and a problematic division between mono- and multilingual literature. As a continuation of the theoretical argument, multimodal readings of three contemporary poets Cia Rinne, Caroline Bergvall and Ralf Andtbacka are presented. Instances of contemporary multilingual poetry, the article concludes, can help us to critically scrutinize notions of clear-cut linguistic borders, as well as to study the intricate dynamics between the acoustic and visual aspects of literary multilingualism.

    Avvikarnas oundvikliga öde: En queer läsning av Vilhelm Mobergs utvandrarserie med fokus på relationen mellan Robert och Arvid2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Vilhelm Moberg (1898–1973) was one of the most influential Swedish writers of his time. His epic The Emigrants with its four parts are among the most read Swedish novels of all time. The field of research about Moberg is large; despite this none of his works have been analyzed from a queer angle until now.

    The purpose of this master’s thesis (one year) is to do a queer reading of Moberg’s The Emigrants, focusing on the relationship between Robert and Arvid. The bond between these young farmhands has rarely been given attention within the research about Vilhelm Moberg; when it is mentioned in previous research, it’s perceived as camaraderie. My hypothesis is that, despite indications of a homophobic attitude in Moberg, it is possible to make visible a romantic love story between these men.

    In this thesis, a question regarding whether animals, animality or animal symbolism in the text makes the young men’s love story increasingly visible, is raised. The theme of bestiality in The Emigrants coincides with Arvid, and can be seen as a synonym for homosexuality. In combination with queer animal symbolism surrounding Robert, the men’s hidden desire and love is enhanced.

    The analysis highlights a dichotomy between masculinity and unmanliness that is portrayed through the relationship between Robert and his older brother Karl Oskar. The latter is being ascribed traditionally masculine traits, such as resilient character, individualism and physical ability for labor, whereas Robert is associated with unmanly attributes such as laziness, untrustworthiness, and an infantile longing for gold and riches. The analysis shows that Robert’s unmanliness, just as the bestiality theme, is a synonym for homosexuality.

    The question as to whether Moberg’s impression that homosexuality is an “unfortunate fate” has had consequences for to the portrayal of Robert and Arvid, permeates this analysis. The purpose has not been to smear Moberg but to highlight the paradox of his homophobic stance, since this thesis conclusively determines that he has written a beautiful love story involving two young men.
