Abstract [en]

Raymond Williams developed a vocabulary and framework for analyzing the ideological forces at work in literature and art, as objects, but also in terms of their production and distribution. This article looks back at his elaboration of cultural materialism and its relationship to film in Preface to Film (1954), written with Michael Orrin, as a way of understanding the media traces of the lost film Children of Loneliness (dir. Richard C. Kahn). The film was an early sex education about homosexuality and this article explores its connections to early exploitation films as a cinematic form, and the dominant and emergent discourses that were used to promote it, as a well as at structures of feeling that these discourses reflect.

Abstract [en]

The current study investigated whether the reflective reading of fiction can provide an experiential definition of empathy to supplement more traditional concept analyses. A secondary aim was to look at the rates of absorption (loss of time and space) relative to the rate of reported empathic engagement. Based on earlier studies on reading fiction as an engagement in a social simulation, it was predicted that because fiction is a controlled experience, reading and talking about fiction could provide a forum in which to examine actual experiences of empathy elicitation in relation to an evolving situation. A survey was conducted with 210 student participants over a three-year period. The results show that the empathetic response to narrative is affected in a variety of ways by the presence or absence of an initial sense of affinity and by cognitive input over time, that is, the changing perception of characters and the situations with which they are confronted. Adept readers are more likely to experience absorption, and those who experience absorption are more likely to be empathetically responsive to input and changes in a situation. Empathetic emotions and cognitive empathy can be experienced for multiple objects simultaneously in one situation and relate to past events and potential futures, but they also shift from object to object.

Abstract [en]

This paper argues that black stereotypes are not ahistorical but rather should be studied in a longer historical perspective because the types change according to political and social contexts. It illustrates this by presenting the contrasts between the Renaissance black villain and its appropriation and adaptation in the Restoration period. © Inter-Disciplinary Press 2010.

Abstract [sv]

Hösten 2015 blev Regionbibliotek Halland kontaktad av två forskare från Halmstad högskola för en första diskussion om eventuella samarbeten. Och vi behövde inte sitta många minuter tillsammans förrän Anna Fåhraeus, lektor i engelska och litteraturvetenskap, Jonas Asklund, lektor i litteraturvetenskap och vi från regionbiblioteket insåg att vi hade många gemensamma frågor som vi ville studera och gå vidare med. Regionbibliotekets goda erfarenhet att samarbeta med forskare utanför professionen har varit en drivande kraft. Att låta någon som inte är färgad av biblioteksvärlden reflektera över vårt arbete har tidigare visat sig vara lyckosamt. Anna och Jonas förankring i lärarutbildningen var en annan god grund för samarbete; bibliotekarieyrket och läraryrket har överlappningar som vi fortfarande är dåliga på att ta tillvara.

Regionbiblioteket hade redan ett stort projekt på gång tillsammans med samtliga folkbibliotek i Halland. Folkbibliotekschefsgruppen hade initierat ett utbildningspaket för alla anställda kring litteratur och läsning – en insats som i synnerhet Eiler Jansson, utvecklingsledare på Regionbiblioteket höll samman. Vi bestämde nu att Halmstad högskola skulle gå in i denna satsning som föreläsare, följeforskare och samtalspartners.

Efter denna dag föreslog de båda forskarna att de skulle gå vidare med en enkät samt en del djupintervjuer för att bättre fånga hur biblioteksanställda arbetar med läsfrämjande i Halland men också att försöka fånga upp ytterligare insatser som behöver göras.

Det känns viktigt att påpeka att forskning utförd i sådan nära relation som i detta fall ändå är självständig. Detta är inte en uppdragsforskning där beställaren har en ungefärlig bild av vad som ska undersökas. Tvärtom, frågeställningen var ett gemensamt beslut, en färdriktning som skulle gynna både professionen och akademin. Anna Fåhraeus och Jonas Asklund presenterar här sina egna analyser och resultat. Regionbiblioteket har stått till tjänst med bakgrundsmaterial, samordning och utgivning.

Rapporten ger svar på hur bibliotekarier i Halland ser på sitt läsfrämjande arbete och förslag på insatser som behöver göras. Den har gett oss mycket att tänka på och folkbibliotekschefsgruppen kommer att tillsammans med regionbibliotekarien och Halmstad högskola bestämma hur vi ska gå vidare. För gå vidare vill vi. Tillsammans.

Maria Ehrenberg Avdelningschef, Regionbibliotekarie

Abstract [en]

Twenty-five gay films produced from 1987 to 2011 in Europe, the US, Argentina and Israel form the basis for this study on masculinity in gay romantic drama. The shared plot motif is a self-assumed straight man realizing that he is homosexual or fluid in his sexuality. The narrative trope of awakening from the folk tale “Sleeping Beauty” (1657) by Charles Perrault, and its revision in late 19th century feminist literature, is the common dramatic component of these gay films. There are similarities with early feminist literature in the representation of the repressive nature of social structures and the fracturing of hetero-normative gender expectations. The article argues that even as some of the hetero-normative conventions of the romance as a genre are upheld, because two straight-looking men perform both roles, masculinity is problematized and a queering takes place at the level of temperament,

Abstract [en]

This collection of essays explores the representations, incarnations and manifestations of evil when it is embodied in a particular villain or in an evil presence. All the essays contribute to showing how omnipresent yet vastly under-studied the phenomena of the villain and evil are. Together they confirm the importance of the continued study of villains and villainy in order to understand the premises behind the representations of evil, its internal localized logic, its historical contingency, and its specific conditions.
