The Didactic Potential of Travel Writing : An analysis of Fredrika Bremer’s Homes of the New World and Henry Morton Stanley’s How I found Livingstone (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur historiska reseberättelser kan användas i svenskundervisning på gymnasiet. Detta gjordes genom en analys av Fredrika Bremers Hemmen i den nya världen (1853–1854) och Henry Morton Stanleys Hur jag fann Livingstone (1872) där genretypiska teman och konflikter identifierades utifrån bland annat Carina Lidströms genrekriterier och personabegrepp. De teman som analyserades är: persona, läsarens man på plats, mötet med andra kulturer samt kvinnligt och manligt. Dessa utgjorde tillsammans med bland annat Kathleen McCormicks litteraturdidaktiska repertoarteori grunden för den avslutande didaktiska diskussionen.  Resultatet visar att både Bremers och Stanleys reseberättelser har många teman och konflikter som lämpar sig för undervisning, bland annat att de visar på ideologiska motstridigheter i sin samtid, och att reseberättelsen som genre har hög didaktisk potential bland annat genom sin position mellan fakta och fiktion.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to examine how historical travel writing can be used in the teaching of Swedish in the upper secondary school. This is done by an analysis of Fredrika Bremer’s Homes in the New World (1853–1854) and Henry Morton Stanley’s How I Found Livingstone (1872), where the genre-specific themes and conflicts are identified, using Carina Lidstöm’s genre criterias. The themes are persona; the reader’s ”man on the scene”; meeting of other cultures, and female and male gender roles. Together with Kathleen McCormick’s literary didactic repertoire theory, these themes form the basis for the closing didactic discussion.  The results show that both Bremers’s and Stanley’s travelogues have many themes and conflicts that are suitable for teaching, including signs of ideological contradictions in their time, and that travel writing as a genre has a high didactic potential through its position between fact and fiction.
