    Voiceless ends: Melville's Benito Cereno and the translator in narrative discourse2014In: Language and Literature, ISSN 0963-9470, E-ISSN 1461-7293, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 255-269Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first part of this article confronts the ways in which translation scholars have drawn on insights from narratology to make sense of the translator's involvement in narrative texts. It first considers competing metaphors for conceptualizing the translator's involvement, arguing for a clearer differentiation between modes of framing and telling. Next, it evaluates the ways in which translation scholars have attempted to integrate the translator as a separate textual agent in governing models of narrative communication, concluding that the conceptual gains to be reaped from positing the translator as a separate enunciator or agent in narrative transactions are limited. The second part of the article analyzes two Dutch translations of Herman Melville's novella Benito Cereno, by Johan Palm (1950) and Jean Schalekamp (1977) respectively. Rather than striving to isolate the translators as separate tellers or co-producers of narrative structure, the analysis reveals that their agency shows foremost in the ways the 'voiceless' narrative of New World slavery is perspectivized in view of changing readerly expectations.

    A Rhetorical Reading of George Orwell's 1984: The brainwashing of Winston in the light of ethos, logos and pathos2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim with this essay is to cast a light upon the brainwashing carried out by the totalitarian Party in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984, and induce a deeper understanding of its persuasive effect on Winston Smith, the main character. Winston passionately hates the Party and its leader Big Brother who govern the country Oceania in which he lives. However, after having undergone brainwashing that also includes torture, Winston surrenders to the ideology of the Party and at the end of the novel his hatred towards Big Brother has turned to love. In order to understand Winton’s conversion I carry out a close reading of the novel and apply the three rhetorical means of persuasion, ethos, logos and pathos, to the novel and demonstrate when and how these appeals are used on Winston. Against this rhetorical background the analysis shows that the Party’s usage of rhetorical appeals can explain why the brainwashing works successfully in its persuasive aim. This result also demonstrates that these three appeals play a prominent role over a course of several years in the Party’s indoctrination of Winston. Additionally, the presence of rhetoric proves that there is more than Winston being tortured to his conversion. Thus, Winston is not only tortured into repeating the principles of the party, he is also persuaded into actually believing in them and loving Big Brother by the Party’s strategic appeals to ethos, logos and pathos.

    Othering and Diversity in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings Trilogy: A Positive Presentation of Difference2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Lord of the Rings trilogy is greatly diverse in species, races, and ethnicities which is a fact that over the decades has engendered great scholarly discussions about hidden racism in the literary work. Therefore, an analysis of intercultural matters and encounters realized throughout the story is relevant for detecting a possible racist ideology. By applying the postcolonial concept “Othering,” which is an act of differentiation, this essay analyzes racist instances in the story, and the result of or opposition to those, in order to indicate the presence of an anti-Othering ideology in the trilogy. The analysis is conducted through discussion of Othering of other species/races/ethnicities caused by blind trust in one’s own group, Othering inside one’s own group, Othering of other species/races/ethnicities, and discussion about instances of multicultural acceptance. Considering Tolkien’s relationship to nature, this discussion also extends to Othering of nature. Consequently, this essay concludes how The Lord of the Rings trilogy arguably is against Othering since the story generally presents the act as negative to others, oneself, and/or one’s beloved as well as contains instances which simply convey a positive view of multiculturalism.

    Kråkflickan och Raskolnikov: En komparativ studie av Brott och straff och Victoria Bergman- trilogin2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie behandlar de fyra böckerna Brott och straff av Fjodor Dostojevskij, Kråkflickan, Hungerelden och Pythians anvisningar alla tre skrivna av Jerker Eriksson och Håkan Axlander- Sundquist. Jag utför en illustrativ komparativ analys av mördarnas psyke och böckernas struktur samt undersöker det didaktiska värdet av att göra denna studie.

    Genom att psykologiskt analysera böckernas mördare har jag kunnat göra en psykologisk profil till de fyra. Raskolnikov som är dubbelmördare i kriminalromanen Brott och straff har en narcissistisk, schizofren läggning som beror på att hans omedvetna strider med det medvetna om det moraliska i att mörda. Viggo Dürer, den onda mördaren av ett femtiotal barn, som figurerar i trilogin är klart psykopatisk med en könsidentitetskonflikt. Victoria Bergman, den trasiga föräldramördaren som är huvudperson i Kråkflickan, Hungerelden och Pythians anvisningar lider av dissociativ personlighetsstörning till följd av upprepade övergrepp i barndomen. Hon är hjälten och detektiven på samma gång. Hennes dotter Madeleine, bortadopterad från födseln, är den som utför ett tiotal mord i trilogin. Med en liknande uppväxt som sin mamma är hon närmast psykopatisk och mördar med motivet hämnd. Victoria Bergman- trilogin faller inom ramen för både en detektivroman och en pusseldeckare, då läsaren får följa offer, förövare och detektiv och samtidigt själv ikläda sig rollen som den undersökande brottsutredaren.

    Det didaktiska värdet i min studie anser jag vara högt, då den för mig öppnat dörrar att som pedagog lättare ska kunna introducera äldre litteratur som ingår i kanon. Äldre litteratur kan komparativt studeras med hjälp av nyare som ligger närmare elevernas världsbild och då är lättare att ta till sig. All litteratur i min studie kan användas som underlag till värdegrundsdiskussioner och därmed låter eleverna uppnå en större förståelse för sin omvärld och sig själva.

    The Point of Play: Resuscitating Romantic Irony in Metamodern Poetics2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay investigates the prospect of Romantic Irony’s potential resurgence in contemporary poetics and discusses its relevance and likeness with metamodernism.

    The internet has by now not only seeped into, but fully permeated, the process of literary production and distribution. The effect of this has been the birth of a new kind of poetic discourse which can broadly be called metamodernism, The New Sincerity or Alt-lit. This movement is characterized by its self-reflexive metacommentary, fragmentary nature and an oscillation between of irony and sincerity. Vermeulen and Akker, among others, have hinted at metamodernism’s relation to Romanticism, but research into the specifics of its tendency towards Romantic Irony is scarce. By viewing the writings of Steve Roggenbuck (a central figure in the new poetic movement), alongside the philosophy of Friedrich Schlegel, I propose a comparative framework for discussion of sincerity, irony and the instrumentalization of contemporary metamodernist writing.

    I demonstrate that Roggenbuck’s writing displays narratological, tropological and thematic tendencies commonly associated with both Romantic Irony and metamodernism. Apart from broader structural comparison, I attempt a comparative analysis between Roggenbuck’s poetry (2010-2015) and Thomas Carlyle’s novel “Sartor Resartus” (1833-1834) in order to provide a visualisation of the rhetorical and narratological strategies of Romantic Irony. I aim to frame Romantic Irony as a sensibility, or mode of discourse - rather than a strict system of thought - which may still be at work today. In extension, the sensibilities of Romantic Irony may shed further light into the philosophical potential of the seemingly incomprehensible and contradictory tendencies of metamodernism. By ironicizing its poetic form, literary ambition and desire for sincerity in a post-postmodern era, Roggenbuck’s poetry celebrates ambiguity and literary failure, ultimately framing irony as a constructive and potentially democratic operation.

    Rattling Society´s Cage in The Great Gatsby: A Marxist Analysis of Character motivation in The Great Gatsby2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Great Gatsby is a famous novel first published in 1926, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The novel frequently criticizes the American dream, a concept which has become strongly linked to capitalism. As such, the text lends itself very well to Marxist theory despite not mentioning Marxism in the novel.  This C-essay will focus on what motivates the characters of this novel. Since the novels main character Jay Gatsby has been analyzed in many articles and essays he will not be analyzed in this essay. Instead it will focus on the other prominent characters such as Daisy, Tom, Myrtle, George and Nick. When their motivations are analyzed through a Marxist analytical perspective it becomes very clear that these characters have realized that society is not fulfilling their needs, and that their commercialized society is the cause of their unhappiness.

    Teaching Linguistic Adaptation to Context with Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The Swedish National Agency for Education states that English students in upper secondary school in Sweden need to learn how to adapt their language according to context. This might be a skill that a large part of these students already master, to some extent. However, that specific knowledge might be implicit, and thus, the students need to both gain awareness of that skill, and to develop it. The aim of this study is to show how such awareness can be taught, and the skill developed, by means of a directed reading of Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale. The novel, according to Russian theorist Mikhail Bakthin, is typically multi-voiced and stratified, and thus a productive object to analyze for the purpose of teaching adaptation to context. Additionally, Atwood’s novel specifically deals with a totalitarian society, where language adaptation is presented in an exaggerated way. This narrativized model of the function of language in different contexts, it is argued, provides an efficient text in terms of teaching how and why speakers might be forced to change their language according to context. This leads to a second teachable aspect presenting itself, since all education must rest on a foundation of democratic values and human rights. The right to one’s language is connected to this demand, in terms of variety and constraints. Hence, in a project such as the one proposed, the students also need to reflect on the relation between language adaptation and power. The study uses Pierre Bourdieu’s model of language and power as a means of showing how the code-switching of the students, and the linguistic struggles of the protagonist in The Handmaid’s Tale are both connected to power. In the study, passages where language adaptation is in effect are presented as a means of showing the potential of the novel. Furthermore, a lesson plan for the project is proposed, as well as criteria for assessment. The suggested approach to teaching these aspects of the English subject is considered, in the light of the examination presented in this research, a suitable one. However, the concept could be further explored by additional readings of other narrative texts where the usage of language is a prominent theme.

    Flerspråkighet i svenska skolor: -En systematisk litteraturstudie om synsätt på flerspråkighet och lämpliga arbetsmetoder i skolan för elever med ett annat modersmål än svenska2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, Sweden has become more multicultural than before. This is due, among other things, to the fact that an increasing number of refugees have applied here. The increased flow of immigrants has caused a lot of prejudice in society, which has also entered the school. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate how these prejudices appear in society and schools and also how they may have arisen through relevant research and literature, based on an identity perspective. Since I address problems, I also want to introduce solutions, therefore, are also methods that teachers can use in second language education suggested. In order to answer these questions, research and literature on multilingualism at school have been studied. The result shows that the prejudices are various, for example it is a common idea that pupils who are multilingual are disorderly and monolinguistic students are not. One reason why people think like that is because of the media. Media has a big role in spreading preconceptions that becomes self-fulfilling prophecy. Thus, thoughts and ideas are built upon each other in society onto the incorrect truths published in the media. It is also common that it exists a “us and them feeling”, where Swedes and immigrants separately stick together. In order to challenge these prejudices in school, working methods that include all can be used. In this essay, translanguaging and genre pedagogy, using the circular model, is recommended as favorable teaching methods.

    Traditionella könsmönster och normbrytande karaktärer: Tre barnlitteraturanalyser ur ett genusperspektiv2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyses three children’s books, selected from a list of bestsellers during 2016. The selected books are intended for children aged 6–9 and are categorized as easy reading. The aim of the study is to analyse how girls and boys are portrayed in children’s literature from a gender perspective. With this study we want to bring greater awareness and understanding of gender in children’s literature.

    When children read, they create new experiences and ideas about the world around them. As a teacher it is therefore important to have gender awareness when choosing books in the classroom. The analyses showed that the books contained not only reproductions of traditional gender patterns but also characters who went against the norms. This result agreed in part with previous research and the prevailing discourses in society.

    Kalle och chokladfabriken: – En adaptionsstudie2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vad som skett i överföringen av Roald Dahls bok Kalle och chokladfabriken (1984) till filmatiseringen med samma namn regisserad av Tim Burton (2005). Det som mer specifikt fokuseras på i analysen är vad som skett med karaktärerna, om genren har påverkats och vad som har lagts till och tagits bort. Vidare diskuterar denna studie, med utgångspunkt i läroplan för grundskola, förskoleklass och fritidshem (2011), de värden och normer som framkommer i verken. För att se hur dessa skulle kunna ligga till grund för värdegrundskopplad undervisning i mellanstadiet. Detta har undersökts genom en komparativ analys av de båda verken. Det vi har kommit fram till är att en av karaktärerna i överföringen till film har fått en mer fördjupad funktion. Detta är något som påverkar filmens genre och därigenom också hela filmens budskap. Filmen har en tydlig psykologisk vinkel som inte finns med i boken. De andra karaktärerna är förhållandevis lika i adaptionen. De normbrytande och säregna karaktärsdragen gör detta till ett bra underlag för diskussion med elever i mellanstadiet.

    "Freedom for just one night": the promise and threat of information and communication technologies2007In: Women Writers : a zine, ISSN 1535-8402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditionally technology has been a male area of interest; not many novels have been written about technology from a female perspective. It has largely been true that, as Barbara Page puts it, women often have an aversion ‘to computer technologies and programs thought to be products of masculinist habits of mind’ (112). However, with a broadening perspective and use of information and communication technologies (ICT), a growing number of women also take interest in, advantage of – sometimes even change – the technology to meet their own requirements. Reflecting this shift, Jeanette Winterson’s The PowerBook and Pat Cadigan’s children’s book Avatar are two examples of novels where ICT play a major role. That women often see the benefits of a less regulated space provided by the technology is explored in these two novels. Édouard Glissant explains how computers can generate a ‘‘space within the indeterminacy of axioms” (84, my italics). According to Glissant this indeterminacy opens up possibilities and “creates the opportunity for an infinite sort of conjunction, in which science and poetry are equivalent. […] The poetic axiom, like the mathematical axiom, is illuminating because it is fragile and inescapable, obscure and revealing. In both instances the prospective system accepts the accident and grasps that in the future it will be transcended” (85). The indeterminacy is destabilizing, and together science and literature create an imaginary space where imaginative (hence ideological) liberation is possible.

    Socialtanter och paragrafryttare: Synen på polisen och sociala myndigheter i Magdalena Graafs Det ska bli ett sant nöje att döda dig2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att genom närläsning av Magdalena Graafs självbiografi Det ska bli ett sant nöje att döda dig, studera hur stereotypa föreställningar kommer till uttryck. De stereotypa föreställningar som valts är synen av polisens och de sociala myndigheters arbete.

         Hermeneutisk metod har används för att få en så fullständig uppfattning av bokens innehåll som möjligt. Därtill har också närläsning av texten gjorts med syfte att hitta alla ställen i boken då Magdalena Graaf talar om polisen eller de sociala myndigheterna. I resultat och analysdelen jämförs den stereotypa bild som finns i Magdalena Graafs bok med liknade studier av stereotyper inom faktionslitterturen. Uppsatsen avslutas sedan med en slutdiskussion där jag sammanfattar och svarar på uppsatsens syfte och frågeställningar. Vidare görs en redogörelse för hur forskning påvisar att de stereotypa föreställningar som finns i faktionslitteratur kan bidra till att ovana, okritiska läsare för sina fördomar bekräftade och betraktar faktionen som en ren faktatext.

    Between Womanhood and Citizenship: A Conceptual-Historicist Approach to Antebellum Women's Literature of Protest2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the tension between the antebellum ideas of “womanhood” and “citizenship” as represented in three classic texts of women’s literature of protest: the “Declaration of Sentiments” of the Seneca Falls Convention, Margaret Fuller’s Woman in the Nineteenth Century, and Harriet Jacobs’s Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. After a brief discussion of what is meant by “literature of protest” and the reasons why these texts belong to this category, I proceed to read them and their historical context following a method inspired by Reinhart Koselleck’s history of concepts (Begriffsgeschichte); I approach “womanhood” and “citizenship” as concepts whose semantic fields can and should be analyzed in their diachronic and synchronic dimensions. Here, however, I will focus on the latter, in an attempt to account for conflicts as well as commonalities between them.

    Constituting Americanness: A History of the Concept and Its Representations in Antebellum American Literature2015Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book is based on my PhD dissertation, entitled Representations of the Concept of “Americanness” in the Canon of Antebellum American Literature. It is a work in cultural history and literary theory that suggests a fresh and potentially fruitful approach to the old notion of Americanness, an idea that lay at the foundation of American studies in mid-twentieth century, only to be exposed as “ideological fiction” by the New Americanists. Surprisingly, neither its advocates nor its critics have made the scholarly effort necessary to theorize or conceptualize Americanness. 

    The subtitle indicates what is distinctive about this project: this is a study of the concept of Americanness. Thus, following Reinhart Koselleck’s history of concepts (Begriffsgeschichte), I propose that “Americanness” is not an ordinary word, but a concept with a broad, albeit historically specific, semantic field. Thus, in the three decades before the Civil War, the semantic field of “Americanness” was constituted at the intersection of several concepts, in different stages of their respective histories; among these, nation, representation, individualism, sympathy, race, and womanhood. By tracing the representations of these concepts in literary texts of the antebellum era, paying attention to their overlapping with the rhetoric of national identification, I uncover some of the meaning of “Americanness” in that period. 

    As far as literary history writing is concerned, Begriffsgeschichte has a double potential: first, to explain the source of confusion between historically different semantic loads of the same concept and, second, to check the critic’s tendency to relativize concepts and therefore make the past a little too familiar. The concept-focused close reading of literary works of the past involves a reformulation of the text/context binary so as to account for contingencies without diminishing the importance of exegesis (a crippling tendency in contemporary literary studies); ultimately, this work aims to reconsider the relationship between history and literature.

    To lay out the meaning of “Americanness” I analyze a wide range of antebellum texts by Emerson, Melville, Thoreau, Douglass, Whitman, Stowe, Jacobs, Hawthorne, Poe, and Fuller, against the background of critical reception and recent scholarship. Thus, to college students and faculty, this book offers a period study of major American writers of the antebellum era.

    "Partialist" and "Universalist": Figurations of U.S. Exceptionalism in Antebellum Writing2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I investigate the tension between particularism and universalism at the core of antebellum American exceptionalism. “Particularism” is herein understood as a broader term encompassing “nationalism”, “jingoism”, “sectarianism”, as well as “individualism” and “self-interest”.  As for “universalism”, it is conceived neither in theological terms as the doctrine that all people will be eventually saved, nor as a kind of foreign policy, but as virtually synonymous to “universality”, or the condition and quality of being universal. Taking my cues from one of Emerson’s famous paradoxes, namely that “every man is a partialist… and… every man is a universalist also” (in the essay “Nominalist and Realist”), I proceed to identify and compare representations of particularism and universalism in antebellum writings on U.S. national identity by Emerson, Fuller, Simms, Douglass, and Delany.
