    A Dangerous Place to Be: Fearing City Life in Georg Wickram’s Von guten und bösen Nachbaurn (1556)2017In: Tears, sighs and laughter: expressions of emotions in the Middle Ages / [ed] Per Förnegård, Erika Kihlman, Mia Åkestam, Gunnel Engwall, Stockholm: Kungl. Vitterhets Historie och Antikvitets Akademien, 2017, p. 138-152Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     “You should know / that also other Portuguese men from Lisbon are in this city of Antwerp/ and not few of them / especially two shabby, evil lads / […]” (Von guten und bösen Nachbaurn, 1969: 143, trans. EWN). When the young Portuguese apprentice Lasarus comes to Antwerp to improve his skills as a craftsman he is immediately introduced to the evils of the city by a friend, thus quickly learning that the big city offers no safety and that people around him can be divided into “us” (good) and “them” (evil). The hero in Georg Wickram’s prose novel from 1556 does not seek knightly adventures on his travels but rather security and a quiet place where he can live together with the woman he loves. Lasarus wants to make a living as goldsmith in an urban setting but he is constantly threatened by malicious characters in the text. He fears for his life and is heartbroken at the same time, far away from home and his beloved Amelia who made him speechless of sorrow when he had to leave her for his travels to foreign cities.

     Hatred, crime and violence characterize life in the early modern city and Wickram’s protagonists have to proceed tactically, adjust to the dangers surrounding them, and to work hard to create a safe haven in large, dangerous cities like Antwerp and Venice. They rarely show strong emotions in public but suffer quietly, worry, and cry when alone without friends and family. Wickram’s text is one of the earliest prose novels in German language depicting city life and city dwellers and connecting the urban space with primarily dark sides of society. The chapter investigates the quickly growing early modern city as a place for criminal behavior, violence, fear and force as expressed in Wickram’s text. The aim is to show how the characters deal with situations of conflict and how they express and cope with their emotions.

    Early Modern Travel Accounts and the Male Body: Exploring the Aesthetics of Human Crisis2017In: Literature and Crisis: Conceptual Explorations and Literary Negotiations / [ed] Elizabeth Kovach, Ansgar Nünning, Imke Polland, Trier: Wissenschaftlicher Verlag Trier, 2017, p. 45-58Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This contribution focusses on Gerrit de Veer’s account of Willem Barentsz’ voyages to the Arctic Ocean 1494–1597 (de Veer 2010 [1876]). It investigates the representation of early modern travels on northern waters, on travels undertaken in order to gain wealth and glory but that most commonly were characterized by extreme physical and mental strain. De Veer’s travelogue presents a microcosm of suffering, of men who struggle to stay alive or who simply give up when life loses its meaning. Several passages in the text differ from the purely descriptive parts that were common in early modern travelogues; by adding illustrative passages of how the men feel in certain situations and how they deal with everyday tasks while trapped in the ice, the narration expands and replaces the measurable and observable by that which is experienced. It is the aim of this contribution to cast light on those aesthetic aspects of travel writing by reading de Veer’s text as a cultural response to humanitarian crisis.

    Eine Königin in den Zeitungen: Königin Christina von Schweden als Beispiel frühneuzeitlicher Nachrichtenvermittlung2008In: Daphnis. Zeitschrift für Mittlere Deutsche Literatur und Kultur der Frühen Neuzeit, ISSN 0300-693X, E-ISSN 1879-6583, Vol. 37, no 1-2, p. 301-332Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Im siebzehnten Jahrhundert hat sich die gedruckte Zeitung als bedeutend für die Nachrichtenvermittlung des vom Krieg verheerten Europa erwiesen. Allerdings wurde nicht nur über Truppenbewegungen oder Friedensschlüsse berichtet, auch das Leben einflussreicher Personen hat in der periodischen Presse seinen festen Platz gehabt. Am Beispiel der schwedischen Königin Christina wird untersucht, wie das Leben einer kontroversen Person in der Berichterstattung ihre Repräsentation findet. Die Aktualität der Zeitungsnotizen führt zu einer relativen Nähe zwischen Text und Objekt, die in anderen Texten nicht gefunden werden kann. Wiederum scheinen die Notizen, die direkt an einer gewissen Situation gebunden sind, Christinas Leben anders zu erzählen, als es in nicht-periodischen Texten möglich war. Ein Leben tritt so hervor, das gattungs- und medienbedingt ist.

    Georg Wickrams Überlegungen zu seiner Schreibkunst2007In: Vergessene Texte - Verstellte Blicke: Neue Perspektiven der Wickram-Forschung, Peter Lang, Bern , 2007, p. 91-108Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Jörg Wickram aus Colmar zählt zu den vielseitigsten deutschsprachigen Autoren des 16. Jahrhunderts. Er prägte medienübergreifend den städtischen Literaturbetrieb, inszenierte eigene und fremde Dramen, gründete die Meistersingergesellschaft seiner Heimatstadt und wagte sich als nicht gelehrter Dichter an die Bearbeitung von Ovids "Metamorphosen", die er selbst illustrierte. Das bisherige Forschungsinteresse galt vorrangig seinen Erzählformen, insbesondere seinen späteren Prosaromanen, in denen er gattungsästhetisches Neuland betrat: Er verlieh der Lebenswelt von Bürgern und Bauern literarische Dignität und entfaltete Vorformen poetologischer Reflexion. Über die Weiterführung narratologischer Analysen zum Romanwerk hinaus erschließt der Band erstmals das Gesamtwerk Wickrams in seiner Vielgestaltigkeit literarischer Genres, Aufführungsformen und Bilderwelten. Durch die Einbeziehung kultur- und kunstwissenschaftlicher, performanz- und gender-theoretischer Ansätze werden neue Perspektiven eröffnet.

    Gossip or News: Queen Christina in the Media2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The life and lifestyle of Queen Christina of Sweden (1626-1689) was widely discussed among learned and lay people already during her lifetime. A woman who strongheadedly went her own way was the target of gossip and critique all over Europe. Christina ruled at a time when newspapers and newsletters started to circulate in growing numbers, and her life became increasingly more public as a result of new ways to communicate her agreements and disagreements, decisions and plans. Post och Inrikes Tidningar (1645) – today the oldest newspaper in the world that is still published – was first published during her reign. She can thus be said to actively have contributed to the growth of mass media. It is therefore remarkable that not more has been written about Queen Christina and the news media. This presentation looks into some of the early accounts of Christina in Swedish and German media out of a gender perspective. It investigates the representation of a female ruling monarch in the media, assuming that the emergence of newspapers and the growing market of mass media in Europe make for new and different ways for the distribution of information and knowledge as well as the dissemination of gender stereotypes and gossip.

    Northern Encounters Michael Heberer, an Early Modern German Traveler to Sweden2017In: Daphnis. Zeitschrift für Mittlere Deutsche Literatur und Kultur der Frühen Neuzeit, ISSN 0300-693X, E-ISSN 1879-6583, Vol. 45, no 3-4, p. 429-449Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates how Michael Heberer (c. 1560-1623) processed his first encounter with Denmark and Sweden in writing when accompanying Heinrich of Schwerin to the wedding of Duke Carl and Christina von Holstein-Gottorp in 1592. The focus will be on the interplay between 'knowledge' and 'experience,' on how the narrating I in the travel account describes and communicates that which is experienced to his readership and how similarities and differences interact in the text. The key issues will be the perception and use of space and borders to structure the narrative and to convey knowledge about the places visited to the reader.

    Heimkehr aus dem Krieg, aus dem Exil oder von einer Entdeckungsreise: über das komplexe Beziehungsgeflecht der Kategorien »Heimat« und »Fremde«. Seit Beginn der Neuzeit bieten Darstellungen der Heimkehr verdichtete Sichtweisen auf bereiste wie auf heimische Kulturen. Die Heimkehr erscheint dabei als eine Schwelle, an der Eigenes und Fremdes aufeinandertreffen. Beiträge aus den Literatur-, Geschichts- und Medienwissenschaften zeigen, wie diese Komplexität in Heimkehrdarstellungen entfaltet wird. Die Inszenierungen der Heimkehr variieren, je nachdem, welcher kulturellen Situation sie entstammen.

    The One I Love: Love and Loss in Early Modern German Prose Narratives2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Eternal love, the loss of a lover, or the loss of love are well-known topics of uncountable stories throughout history. The love topos is thus closely related to loss and can be found in numerous early modern German prose narratives but can “love” and “loss” also be read as structuring the narrative? When Thüring von Ringoltingen’s Melusine (1574) discovers the betrayal of the man she loves she has no other choice than leaving him and laments:

    Ach Gott / das fuget vnd wil sich nun zu leide unnd kummer ziehen. vnser freüd die ist verkert in grosses trawren. vnser sterck unnd krafft ist verkert in anmacht. Vnser wol geuallen in ein grosses mißuallen / vnser glück in vngeuelle / vnser seld in ellende </> vnser sicherheit ist gekert in grosse sorg / vnser freÿheÿt in dienstperkeit.

    Already before their marriage Melusine told Raimund never to visit her on Saturdays. Raimund knows, but curiosity mixed with envy makes him break his promise and first peek through a small hole in the door and somewhat later make public what he has seen. He loses his wife who returns to the spheres of half-human creatures, forever damned – if not saved by a man who marries her but leaves her alone while in her bath. They lose each other but not their love for each other. Melusine claims: “Lieber freündt ich pitt dich / das du got alle zeit fur mich pitest / dann ich dein auch nit vergessen wil” (122) and Raimund never forgets his one and only wife. Melusine loses her chance to a true human life but neither her faith in God, nor the love to her husband. Love ends in loss while also making the narrative take a different direction.

    In Veit Warbecks story of the beautiful Magelone the lovers feel forced to leave the court in order to stay together, only to be quickly separated. Magelona’s and Peter’s love for each other is neither sanctioned by their parents, nor by the authorities. It makes them lose their high ranks in society, their home, and all their material belongings. Love puts them on trial; they have to regain every part and piece of their lives before rejoining and marrying at the end of the story. Their love story, so closely connected with loss, can be said to take a new turn every time something changes or is lost. Whatever is lost has to be reconquered. A happy ending is not allowed the two young couples in Georg Wickram’s Gabriotto und Reinhart (1551). Love results in total loss – in the loss of life – but the belief in love once again remains. The refusal to give up love and to adapt to conventional norms in the end leads to the death of all four protagonists. But their actions also have a cathartic effect on the king who realizes what his blind belief in courtly norms has resulted in. The king regrets his cruelty and regains the sympathy of the reader. Wickram lets love rule while ruling out a world of pure cruelty.

    In all three stories love is as central to the plot as is loss. Love leads to loss but never seems to be lost in the early modern prose novel. The resistance among the protagonists to lose their faith in love is contrasted by temporal disbelief, in hesitance, and anger that can be directed towards the self as well as the beloved or a threatening outsider. Loss thus seems to structure the narrative of love, to make for dramatic effects, to help make illicit love legitimate, to restore a disrupted world order, and to order the narratives into different segments. The presentation will focus on the exchange of love and loss in the texts presented above. A central question in the discussion will be whether thematic and structural aspects of “love” and “loss” correlate or if they diverge and make for breaks and ruptures in the text. The paper will closely examine the interplay between love and loss and aims at explaining structural elements or patterns that seem reappear in all three texts.

    Women and Family Life in early Modern German popular Literature2004Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Writers of sixteenth-century German popular literature took great interest in describing, debating, commenting on, and prescribing gender roles, and discourses of gender can be traced in texts of all kinds from this period. This book focuses on popular works by Georg Wickram, Jakob Frey, Martin Montanus, and Johann Fischart, all of whom published novels, joke books, plays and/or moral treatises on marriage and family life in Strasbourg in the sixteenth century. Their works express not only their own ideas on women's roles as wives and mothers, but also societal values at a time of religious, political, and cultural change. The view of gender issues provided by these writers is not a simple one, as they ascribed widely varying characteristics to "woman" and her relationship to "man." The book thus analyzes the social and cultural construction of the concept of "woman" as indicated not only by the narrators' comments, but also by the relationships and roles of men and women characters in the narratives. Overall, the focus is on the disparities that persisted in the sixteenth-century discourse of gender, confusing all attempts to arrive at definitive gender roles. In the end, the study argues for something that can best be described as a "flowing continuity" or a "continuous flow" in the discourses that form the sixteenth-century concepts of "woman" and "man."

    Writing Life – Writing News: Representations of Queen Christina of Sweden (1626–1689) in Early Modern Literature2009In: Renaissance Studies. Journal of the Society for Renaissance Studies., ISSN 0269-1213, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 221-239Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Queen Christina of Sweden (1626–1689) was one of the most prominent women of her time. Her life was the subject of much speculation; it was reported in the newspapers, it appeared in historic accounts, as well as in less serious tales – as court gossip – already during the first half of her life. The narratives of Christina formed a diverse corpus of texts that circulated in Europe during the second half of the seventeenth century. Most texts originated from a few sources but they were translated, edited, and re-writtenand thus helped to shape a textual life of the queen that was highly contradictory.  The many anecdotes surrounding Christina grant the queen a life in the spotlight and turn her into an icon, often representing that which the author wants her to be. This paper deals with the representation of the queen in some of the English translations of texts originally published in Italian and French. It focuses on the narration of life, on the gendering of sovereignty, but also on the use of genre for telling a life story written to suit certain purposes rather than to tell the ‘true story’ of a life.

    Das Medium ‚Buch‘ ist im 15. bis 17. Jahrhundert durch eine Fülle von Veränderungen in seiner Materialität und in der Formation seiner Inhalte gekennzeichnet. Im Mittelpunkt stehen in diesem Band die Interdependenz und Interferenz von sprachlicher, graphischer und bildlicher Codierung. In den einzelnen Beiträgen werden Zeugnisse unterschiedlicher Sprach- und Kulturräume aus der Perspektive ver­schiedener Wissenschaftsdisziplinen – Germanistik, Romanistik, Kunst­­geschichte, Buchwissenschaft – hinsichtlich der Beziehungen von Handschrift und Druck, von Text und Bild oder der konkreten Ge­staltung des Textes in den Blick genommen. Der gewählte Ansatz ermöglicht es, aus der materiellen Beschaffenheit und formalen Gestaltung der Überlieferungsträger in ihrer histo­ri­schen Besonderheit sowohl ästhetische als auch inhaltsbezogene As­pek­te dieses Wandels vor dem Hintergrund ökonomischer Erfor­der­nisse oder der spezifischen Rezeptionsbedingungen und -erwar­tun­gen zu be­leuchten und damit das Wissen über das Medium ‚Buch‘ fort­zuschreiben.

    Allusions and Reflections: Greek and Roman Mythology in Renaissance Europe2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In June 2012, scholars from a number of disciplines and countries gathered in Stockholm to discuss the representation of ancient mythology in Renaissance Europe. This symposium was an opportunity for the participants to cross disciplinary borders and to problematize a well-researched field. The aim was to move beyond a view of mythology as mere propaganda in order to promote an understanding of ancient tales and fables as contemporary means to explain and comprehend the Early Modern world.With the Renaissance, pagan religion ceased to pose a threat to Christianity and its mythologies found a way to coexist with Christian doctrine. Old Greek and Roman tales came to play a crucial role in Renaissance culture, partly because the ancient sources, both literary and artistic, many of them recently uncovered, provided rich material for the writers and artists of the period. Mythology provided a network of allusions and references for contemporary poetry and art, reinforcing the possibilities of allegorical interpretation. Furthermore, it offered moral guidance since deities could easily be materialized into personifications of vices and virtues. All artistic expressions, visual and textual, whether they belonged to a secular or a religious tradition, made use of mythology. This volume exemplifies how Renaissance writers’ and artists’ acquaintance with mythological accounts from Homer to Apuleius was of utmost importance for their creative work, as it was for their readers and those contemporary patrons of art who saw themselves as the living embodiment of some remote ancient deity. By posing new questions and suggesting alternative answers to old ones, the contributors to this volume provide a better and more detailed understanding of the struggles and strategies of recycling, recuperating and transforming ancient mythology during the Renaissance. All chapters here have a common focus on the re-configuration of classical myths in Early Modern Europe, in political, erotic and ceremonial contexts. By returning to the classical world of cosmic strife and harmony, of gods and metamorphoses, Renaissance poets and artists were able to express their aesthetic ideals, personal preoccupations and moral attitudes. Ancient mythology offered them a full set of useful metaphors, which could take on new meanings in a new cultural context.

    Montanalingua – Främmande språk och upplevelsepedagogik: 24 praktiska förslag för lärare och kursledare2007Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Montanalingua är ett projekt som har ett innovativt perspektiv på inlärning och som strävar efter att knyta samman modern främmandespråkinlärning med idéer och metoder från upplevelsepedagogiken och dess värdegrundstankar. Pedagoger från olika europeiska länder har utvecklat 24 attraktiva moduler för språken tyska, engelska, franska och svenska med målet att öka motivationen och intresset bland framför allt unga att lära sig främmande språk. Stora eller små äventyr i den fria naturen eller i en park – i Montanalinguas aktiviteter måste många olika utmaningar bemästras och då ställs krav på kunskaper i främmande språk liksom också på teamkänsla och kreativa idéer.

    I denna bok hittar lärare i främmande språk såväl på kommunala och privata skolor som på olika friskolor inspiration för en ny typ av undervisning utanför klassrummet. Upplevelsepedagoger inom olika organisationer får här didaktisk vägledning för språkarbetet med grupper som lär sig ett främmande språk.

    Montanalingua: language learning and outdoor pedagogy2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional language classes most often take place in the classroom. Rarely do language students learn in environments that challenge them physically or make them work together in teams in order to solve a task – unless it is part of an exercise in the classroom. Montanalingua is a Lingua2 project; it uses ideas from outdoor pedagogy and combines outdoor activities with active language learning – focussing on student-centred learning. The aim of the project is to produce a handbook for language teachers and outdoor pedagogues who want to try new ways of teaching foreign languages. The presentation will discuss the challenges involved in developing units that can be used by themselves or combined to make up for a whole day of exciting experiences and language learning. It will further examine the challenges involved when outdoor pedagogues and experienced language teachers from six European countries try to develop a tool to be used for empowering students to succeed when learning a foreign language. The presentation will critically follow the project from its beginnings to the final product – the handbook – and also show sample units that have been tested by students in several countries.

    (Re-)Contextualizing Literary and Cultural History: The Representation of the Past in Literary and Material Culture2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume holds a number of contributions from a conference held at Stockholm University 2–4 September, 2010: (Re)ContextualizingLiterary and Cultural History. The aim of the conference was to gather scholars from a variety of disciplines, not only to investigate material or literary history and culture but also to bring theoretical aspects from different elds of research into play. The conference thus brought together scholars to (re-)examine the importance of historical perspectives in literary studies, and to scrutinize the impact of cultural studies on early modern scholarship. A selection of revised papers was chosen for publication in this volume. It is divided into three parts: I Theorizing Literary and Cultural History II Ordering Thoughts—Making Sense of the World, and III Communicating Things and Thoughts.

    Sendbote zwischen den Kulturen: Gustav Korlén und die germanistische Tradition an der Universität Stockholm2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Seit 1929 wird an der Universität Stockholm deutsche Sprache und Literatur gelehrt. Als Gustav Korlén 1952 an der damaligen Stockholmer Hochschule zum Professor ernannt wurde, begann er das Deutschstudium nachhaltig zu modernisieren, indem er auf die interdisziplinären Möglichkeiten und die gesellschaftliche Relevanz des Faches Deutsch verwies. Mit seinem Interesse für die deutsche Nachkriegsliteratur, aber auch durch seine Stellungnahme in bildungspolitischen Debatten, rückte er das akademische Studium in die Mitte der Gesellschaft. Zugleich setzte er sich für eine Germanistik ein, die an der Schnittstelle von Literatur und Sprache operiert und die traditionellen Grenzen überwindet. Dieses Erbe ist der Germanistik an der Universität Stockholm Anspruch und Ansporn zugleich, was das Spektrum der im vorliegenden Band versammelten Beiträge deutlich erkennen lässt. In 16 Beiträgen ehemaliger und derzeitiger Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter des Instituts wird die ganze Bandbreite germanistischer Forschung in Stockholm aufgezeigt. Dabei geht es um Sprachgeschichte und kommunikative Praktiken, Sprachpolitik und Sprachlenkung, Didaktik und Methodik des Deutschunterrichts, deutsche Grammatik und Lexikologie, deutsche Nachkriegs- und Gegenwartsliteratur sowie Übersetzung.Eine unserer Absichten war es, mit der vorliegenden Anthologie Gustav Korlén zu seinem 100. Geburtstag auf besondere Weise zu ehren - durch seinen Tod im vergangenen Jahr ist aus der Jubiläumsschrift eine Gedenkschrift geworden.
