    Vi vet inte vad vi tycker om en bok förrän vi pratat om den: En studie om boksamtalets betydelse för läsförståelsen2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie handlar om textsamtalets påverkan på elevers läsförståelse. Studien utgår från en undersökning som genomfördes i två skolklasser. Det är två högstadieskolor inom Hallands län och klasserna har delats in i grupp A och B. Grupperna har fått besvara sex frågor till H.C. Andersens saga Flickan med svavelstickorna men testet har bedrivits på två olika sätt. Grupp A fick texten och sex frågor att besvara individuellt utan någon hjälp. Grupp B fick använda sig av ett textsamtal med sina klasskamrater innan de fick besvara de sex frågorna individuellt. Resultatet som framställs från de olika skolorna jämförs på individuell nivå men skolorna jämförs även på skolnivå då det är stora skillnader dem emellan.  Studien har sin relevans då undersökningar har visat att elevers kunskaper inom läsförståelse blir allt sämre och därför är det av vikt att komma fram med strategier för hur vi kan motverka detta.  Resultatet denna studie visar är att samtalet gynnar många elever. Fler elever kan besvara innehållsfrågor till en text efter att ha samtalat om den.

    Sadomasochism and compliance in the Twilight Saga: Female Submission and the Romance of Being Loved to Death2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the sadomasochistic relationship between the main characters of the Twilight Saga from a psychoanalytic perspective, and looks at the family and gender roles in the Saga from a post-feministic view. Aspects also considered are the portrayal of female sexuality as something dangerous and negative, recreational sex as something perverted, and the pro-marriage and anti-abortion propaganda in the last two novels. The purpose of the essay is to reveal how the author’s personal, and to some extent religious, beliefs and values are validated through the storyline; how the relationship between the main characters, as well as their personal psychological and physical health, change after matrimony and parenthood.

    When the cat is away, the (m)other will play: regression and identity formation in Neil Gaiman's Coraline2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines Neil Gaiman’s Coraline from a psychoanalytic perspective, with focus on the formation of the super ego. While the young girl’s identity formation has been examined before, the general focus is often oedipal. In this essay, I choose to step away from the oedipal and examine the psychosymbolism throughout the novella. The aim is to see how Coraline’s own psychic development manifests itself in the other world. The characters in the novella are looked upon as representations of different aspects of Coraline’s psyche. Her actions with them are considered to be representations of internal conflicts or resolutions.  

    In short, this essay examines how the novella portrays the psychodevelopmental nature of the child's identity formation.

    En egen identitet: En komparativ studie av Amanda Svenssons Hey Dolly, Välkommen till den här världen och Allt det där jag sa till dig var sant2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay is a study of three fiction novels by the Swedish author Amanda Svensson: Hey Dolly (2008), Välkommen till den här världen (2011) and Allt det där jag sa till dig var sant (2014). A unified theme for the novels is identity making where the three young female protagonists try different identities and explore who they are. The aim of this study is therefore to investigate in which ways the protagonists explore their identities and how this is expressed. Gender theory and genre theory are used when analyzing the characters in the novels.

    In the analysis it becomes clear that the protagonists explore their identities in different ways. The three young women are aware of that they live in a society in which male and female gender stereotypes exist. In some cases they adjust to the gender roles but in many cases they also observe the gender stereotypes and problematize them. Therefore the protagonists sometimes differ from how a stereotype woman is portrayed.

    A Harlot at Camelot: Female Power and Sexuality in The Mists of Avalon2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Mists of Avalon is not the first contemporary novel written based on the tales of King Arthur. It is, however, the first best-selling story with solely female focalizers, which makes it a notable work. Drawing largely on Sir Thomas Malory’s work Le Morte D’Arthur, it tells the tale of Arthur’s rise and fall through the eyes of his sister Morgan le Fay – or Morgaine, as Bradley has chosen to call her. Making Morgan le Fay the main character and focalizer is an unusual move, since she, although she has been portrayed in several different ways throughout history, has always been seen through someone else’s eyes. In this regard, The Mists of Avalon turns the tables of the traditional narrative, and gives Morgan le Fay - or Morgaine - a personality, and makes her someone whose perspective the reader can understand and relate to.

    Money and myths: An exploration of models of value in early 19th-century literature and texts on economy

    The main aim of this paper is to show how the concept of money could be treated in literary and in economic writings in the Swedish Age of Romanticism. Three texts — an early poem by Erik Johan Stagnelius and two contemporary essays in economic theory — serve as examples of how, and for which purpose, qualitative and quantitative values could be negotiated in these writings. The study shows that, in the poem, money and profit are treated as inconsistent with such qualitative values as freedom, justice, and joy, whereas the two theoretical essays both make use of different strategies of fictionalization to deal with qualitative and quantitative values in one and the same narration. In this paper, the fictionalization strategies are linked to the paracapitalist approach often to be found in the political and economic theories in the Romantic period. From the perspective of economy-discourse history, an attempt is made to link the two essays to the German economist and philosopher Adam Müller and his Versuche einer neuen Theorie des Geldes (1816).

    Den moderna ensamhetens paradox: En litteraturvetenskaplig analys av modernitet och individualism i Therese Bohmans Aftonland2019Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker spänningen mellan frihet och trygghet respektive ensamhet och gemenskap som typiskt moderna erfarenheter i Therese Bohmans samtidsroman Aftonland (2016). Studien syftar till att relatera dessa teman till viss kritik av det moderna samhället genom sociologiska teorier om modernitet och individualism. Tillvägagångssättet för studien är en litteraturvetenskaplig analys med en hermeneutisk forskningsansats. De slutsatser som kan dras utifrån studiens resultat är att spänningen mellan frihet och trygghet kan kopplas till ensamhet, såväl självvald som ofrivillig. Det moderna samhällets frihetsbetoning och individers identitetsskapande som skildras i Aftonland kan resultera i en upplevelse av otrygghet och oro som kan härledas tillbaka till sökandet efter balans mellan frihet och trygghet. I detta resultat kan också en kritisk diskussion om individualism och frihet som moderna erfarenheter anas.

    Fyrtio år med Alfons Åberg!: En forskningsstudie med fokus på en bilderbokskaraktärs förändring under fyra decennier.2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vi har i vårt examensarbete haft ambitionen att se om karaktären Alfons i Gunilla Bergströms böcker om Alfons Åberg förändrats från 1970-talet fram till 2000-talet. Vi valde ut fyra Alfons Åberg-böcker, en från varje årtionde, och valde att studera dem utifrån ett diskursanalytiskt perspektiv. Det vi kom fram till var att karaktären Alfons Åberg inte förändrats avsevärt, utan istället menar vi att Alfons intar olika subjektspositioner i de situationer vi studerat.

     

    Vårt syfte med studien var att se om det skett någon samhällsutveckling i böckerna och därmed även förändrade värderingar. Detta för att väcka ett intresse hos andra pedagoger och få de att reflektera kring de bilderböcker barnen får ta del av ute i verksamheten.

    Mortal Minds and Cosmic Horrors: A Cognitive Analysis of Literary Cosmic Horror in H.P.Lovecraft's ”The Shadow Out of Time”2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores how the reader cognitively reacts to reading H. P. Lovecraft’s horror story “The Shadow Out of Time” (1936). I analyse the text to see how it invites readers to beaffected by it. I specifically look at invitations to envisionment, subjective experience andintersubjectivity. The literary horror terms uncertainty and uncanniness are used inconjunction with cognitive theory to explain how the readers may react to readingLovecraft’s stories. These are in turn reinforced by the reader's ongoing envisionment of thestory, and their sharing of the character’s experiences via subjective experience. For example,the separation between the mind and body of the protagonist creates an uncanny dissonanceto his own identity, which disrupts the reader’s understanding of the character. This maycause distress in the reader due to the subjective experience that connects the reader to thecharacter. Additionally, the disrupted sense of reality in the book affects the narrator'sperceptions of both his surroundings and his own mental faculties. Subsequently, the reader’sunderstanding of the text is also in a state of flux which affects their envisionment of thestory. This disrupts understanding and may enhance feelings of unease. My theory istherefore that unease is invited by certain horror techniques, such as uncertainty anduncanniness, which in turn influence the reader specifically through subjective experienceand envisionment.

    Into the Isle of Self: Nietzschean Patterns and Contrasts in D. H. Lawrence's The Trespasser1996Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is based on a close reading of Lawrence's novel The Trespasser from a Nietzschean point of view. By adopting this perspective it aims at giving the novel the sense of unity it has so far been alleged to lack. The analysis is preceded by a detailed discussion of the concept of literary influence. Since the purpose of this study is to illuminate what is unique in Lawrence's novel rather than to claim any derivative use of Nietzsche's thought, the focus is on Lawrence's transformative and dynamic way of adopting Nietzschean themes in his novel. The Trespasser is read in its Edwardian context, with particular attention to the response that Nietzsche's philosophy met with 1900-1910. A separate section is devoted to the presentation of him in the Socialist weekly The New Age in 1908-09. The analysis of The Trespasser is conducted along two partly related lines of thought: the Apollonian-Dionysian dichotomy as it is presented by Nietzsche in The Birth of Tragedy, and the process towards a Dionysian awareness that is put forward in Thus Spoke Zarathustra. As is pointed out in chapter three, the Apollonian-Dionysian contrast is reflected chiefly in the characterization, setting, symbolism, and to some degree also in the action of the novel. In chapter four the actual progression of the plot is dealt with in terms of a Zarathustran journey and the light symbolism associated with it. Moreover, some of Lawrence's early poems are discussed in connection with Nietzschean parallels found in The Trespasser, with a view to emphasizing the pervasive influence of Nietzsche's ideas on the young Lawrence.

    Roll out Beethoven: The Player Piano and Musical Waste in Edwardian England2011In: European Journal of English Studies, ISSN 1382-5577, E-ISSN 1744-4233, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 7-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To judge from literature produced in England around the turn of the twentieth century, the Edwardian period was a noisy one. The development of the player piano and the possibility provided by piano rolls for storing more music than previously helped introduce classical music to the masses. However, this process of democratisation resulted in confusion between music and noise. By analysing five Edwardian novels influenced by the player piano discourse, this article will argue that dealing with music in fiction was a means of disposing of musical waste.

    The Player Piano and the Edwardian Novel2015Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In her study of music making in the Edwardian novel, Cecilia Björkén-Nyberg argues that the invention and development of the player piano had a significant effect on the perception, performance and appreciation of music during the period. In contrast to existing devices for producing music mechanically such as the phonograph and gramophone, the player piano granted its operator freedom of individual expression by permitting the performer to modify the tempo. Because the traditional piano was the undisputed altar of domestic and highly gendered music making, Björkén-Nyberg suggests, the potential for intervention by the mechanical piano’s operator had a subversive effect on traditional notions about the status of the musical work itself and about the people who were variously defined by their relationship to it. She examines works by Dorothy Richardson, E.M. Forster, Henry Handel Richardson, Max Beerbohm and Compton Mackenzie, among others, contending that Edwardian fiction with music as a subject undermined the prevalent antithesis, expressed in contemporary music literature, between a nineteenth-century conception of music as a means of transcendence and the increasing mechanisation of music as represented by the player piano. Her timely survey of the player piano in the context of Edwardian commercial and technical discourse draws on a rich array of archival materials to shed new light on the historically conditioned activity of music making in early twentieth-century fiction.

    Translators, Tricksters and Traps: The Correspondence between Paul Solanges and Henry Handel Richardson as Life-Writing Project2017In: Life Writing, ISSN 1448-4528, E-ISSN 1751-2964, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 83-96Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1910, Paul Solanges wrote to Henry Handel Richardson, author of Maurice Guest (1908), offering to translate the novel into French. Solanges had been deeply moved by the music novel recounting the story of a piano student’s attraction to a femme fatale. Throughout the translation process, which went on for over three years and was never completed due to the translator’s death, Richardson and Solanges exchanged some 300 letters. Initially Solanges was unaware that he was corresponding with a woman and although he soon began to suspect that this was the case, he never confronted her with his suspicion. Instead, the correspondents were in implicit agreement that they were setting traps for each other, a feature that has been given some scholarly attention in the study of Richardson’s creation of her male persona. However, in the present article, the ‘story of traps’ is approached primarily from the point of view of Solanges’s life-writing project. It is claimed that due to its liminal character, the correspondence sits neatly within the trickster genre. The argument is built on Jacques Derrida’s notion of the archive as a phenomenon to be understood from a point in the future. As such, the existence today of the meticulously edited correspondence testifies to the triumphant outcome of Solanges’s painful suffering from archive fever. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

    "Världslitteraturens störste dramatikergenom tiderna föddes 1564": En sociosemiotisk analys av hur läromedel legitimerar litteratur2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen undersöker hur ett antal läromedel i svenska på gymnasienivå legitimerar den litteratur som de behandlar. Syftet med uppsatsen är att med hjälp av van Leeuwens kategorier för legitimering synliggöra hur läromedlen legitimerar litteraturens plats i svenskämnet samt om legitimeringen skiljer sig åt mellan litteratur som uppfattas som kanonisk och litteratur som inte anses vara kanonisk. Undersökningen gör nedslag i läromedlen och fokuserar på ett antal utvalda författarskap. Forskningen kring begreppet kanon framhäver Shakespeare och Homeros som centrala delar och författarskapen utgör därför en stor del av resultatet. I syfte att synliggöra huruvida Shakespeare och Homeros behandlas annorlunda än den övriga litteraturen består analysens tredje del av ett potpurri av författare som inte tillskrivs samma status. Den huvudsakliga analysen har gjorts av skriften och därefter används identifierade hierarkier från en kompositionell analys som förstärkning av kategorierna för legitimering. Resultatet visar att de undersökta läromedlen behandlar Shakespeare och Homeros som om de vore en del av en kanon trots att Skolverket inte presenterar någon gemensam litteraturlista. Skolans uppdrag är bland annat att främja det kritiska tänkandet, något som läromedlen inte lever upp till.

    Abstract [en]

    Catrine Brödje, Women's death by drowning. A literary motif at the turn of the century 1900 

    The picture of a dead woman was a common motif around the previous turn of the century. In the four literary texts that I am studying in this essay, a woman drowns. The texts are Georg Heym's poem "Die Tote im Wasser", Bertolt Brecht's ballad "Vom ertrunkenen Mädchen", Kate Chopin's novel The Awakening and Anna Lenah Elgström's short story "Det sjungande barnet". 

    It is strange that women's death by drowning is a common motif in these four different texts published between 1899 and 1927 in Sweden, Germany and the United States. It may be a coincidence, but the common motif is there and therefore calls for a comparison.

    Brecht's, Heym's, Chopin's and Elgström's texts are read in the light of the changed gender order, which was a result of the discourse on modernity in the early 1900s, and thereby the different gendered views on the motif women's death by drowning are made visible. The essay will explore the possibility of letting female and male writers establish a dialogue, where both the female and the male voices are heard instead of stopping at the fact that the motif of women's death by drowning becomes solely a male monologue.

    Ett annat tiotal: En studie i Anna Lenah Elgströms tiotalsprosa1998Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis investigates the literary texts by Elgström in relation to the political, cultural and literary context of the years between 1910 and 1920.

    Among her contemporaries Elgström was important, but today she is completely unknown. The literary criticism of her time is one of the reasons why her writings have been transferred to the periphery. When she made her début, Elgström was very positively received. After that, the literary critics were not capable of seeing the innovative aspects of her prose of that period and a discussion of incomprehensibility was initiated, in which words like hysterical, extatic and exalted became catchwords. It appears that Elgström created a form of expression that was not yet accepted in literature. The male dominated literary criticism was at a loss and Elgström was ignored.

    The prose she wrote during the period in question has a distinctly experimental approach. In her literary texts, that are violating the standard conventions, Elgström appears as a female modernist and creates alternative images in the form of feminist and pacifist utopias. Expressionism is the modernist movement that can mainly be related to her prose of this period. Like the expressionists, she expresses a new sense of life which is permeated with religious conceptions.

    In the study the female modernism is seen in a feminist perspective, as well as in a perspective of gender theory where networks constitute an important basis. Elgström often worked in female networks and thus she became an important figure in the context of female literature and female politics of that time.

    By showing Elgström's kinship with the nation-wide early Swedish modernism, the Finno-Swedish modernism and the German expressionism, as well as by illustrating Elgström's position in the context of female literature and female politics of that time, the study contributes to a different image of the 1910s.

    "'Se kvinnorna'. Marika Stiernstedt, Hjalmar Söderberg and the gender-political context at the beginning of the 20th century"

    This study discusses the concept of intertextuality by examining Martin Bircks ungdom (1901) and Doktor Glas (1906) by Hjalmar Söderberg and Lilas äktenskap (1910) by Marika Stiernstedt in the context of early 20th century gender-political discussion. Stiernstedt and Söderberg raise questions about sex, gender, love, sexuality and morality against a backdrop of works such as Lifslinjer I (1903) by Ellen Key, Ny kärlek. En bok för mogna andar (1902) by Elisabeth Dauthenday (1902) and to some extent Fyra böcker om Kristi efterföljelse (1894) by Thomas a Kempis. Stiernstedt and Söderberg show in their literary work that the contemporary gender-political discussion was characterized by security and perplexity. The female protagonists in their novels seem to be trapped in what Birgitta Holm calls “the no man's land of feminine desire", that is, in a borderland between an increasingly loosened Victorian ideal woman and an even more vague idea of the New Woman. However, although these three women live under entirely different conditions, they can still be regarded as forerunners to the New Woman.

    Words speak louder than actions: Om intertextuella kopplingar mellan John Ajvide Lindqvist Människohamn och The Smiths musik i karaktäriseringen av Henrik och Björn.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsatsen undersöker jag hur John Ajvide Lindqvist i sin roman Människohamn karaktäriserar två centrala karaktärer genom att låta dem prata nästintill uteslutande i citat från kultbandet The Smiths. Vad säger detta om Henrik och Björn som personer och varför använder John Ajvide Lindqvist de specifika citat som han gör? Jag undersöker även kort huruvida Människohamn kan kategoriseras som skräckroman utifrån de kriterier som Yvonne Leffler lyfter fram i Skräck som fiktion och underhållning från 2001.

    "Det var öppningen till att läsa andra genrer": En attitydundersökning bland lärare, elever och bibliotekarie om fantasygenrens plats i undervisningen av skönlitteratur i svenska.2018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore the attitude towards using the fantasy genre while teaching literature among Swedish teachers, students and a librarian. Furthermore, the main focus was to see if the fantasy genre could contribute to the students’ cognitive and emotional development, as well as explore if using the fantasy genre could have beneficial outcomes for the students, in order for them to reach the aims of the curriculum, in the different levels of Swedish. The methods used were semi-structured interviews with three upper secondary Swedish teachers and one librarian and 47 questionnaires to students from three different classes, in the South of Sweden. The interview questions and the questioners were analyzed taking into account current research within the area, and further based on my own experience. The compiled results showed that the responding teachers and the librarian could all see positive outcomes of using the genre. 50 percent of the students would have liked to see more fantasy in their education and 50 percent had no such desire. All the interviewees thought that fantasy had a positive effect on the students’ cognitive and emotional development. The teachers also thought that using the genre in their teaching could help the students reach the aims of the curriculum, which was something 50 percent of the students noticed as well.

    Genusanalys av två kvinnliga karaktärer i fantasyserien Game of Thrones: "Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it." (Lloyd Alexander)2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats analyserar hur genus gestaltas i fantasyserien Game of Thrones. Analysen är baserad på två kvinnliga gestalters skildringar i den första säsongen av teveserien. De två valda karaktärerna, Daenerys Targaryen och Arya Stark, analyseras och jämförs med Yvonne Hirdmans genuskontraktsteori och Paulina de los Reyes och Nina Lykkes intersektionalitets begrepp men även med Maria Nikolajevas schema om hur manligt och kvinnligt gestaltas i litterära texter. Resultatet visar att det förekommer en genuskontraktspakt i karaktärsskildringarna men också att maktpositionerna mellan manliga och kvinnliga karaktärerna beror på andra intersektionella kategorier än enbart kön. Undersökningens resultat tyder även på att Daenerys och Aryas karaktärer bryter mot de stereotypa skildringarna i Nikolajevas schema. Orsaken kan vara att genuskontraktet finns djupt inpräntat i våra samhällsnormer om hur manligt och kvinnligt bör vara. Mannen förväntas vara den starka och beskyddande medan kvinnan förväntas vara den svaga och omhändertagna. En annan anledning till att stereotyperna är svåra att bryta kan vara författarnas rädsla att läsarna inte kommer att kunna identifiera sig med karaktärerna.

    Subkulturer i litteratur som läses av tonåringar: En hermeneutisk analys av fem litterära verk.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay deals with the relationship between subcultures and literature. It includes an analysis of what adolescents read if they get to choose fiction by themselves. The method used in this essay is a hermeneutic method. Five novels are used in the search for subcultures and qualities and ideals within them. The essay reveals five specific subcultures, and significant features of those are presented in the analysis. These subcultures are represented in the five novels, as well as in society in general.

    Furthermore, the purpose of this essay is to inherit deeper knowledge about the different subcultures represented among adolescents. The essay tries to challenge teachers to be aware of what different subcultures there are and how to use the knowledge about them when teaching.

    Keywords

    Subcultures, youth culture, adolescent, identification, literature, teaching, reading, genre.

    Dikten och tillvaron: att finna uttryck för en verklighet i Hanne Ørstaviks Kjærlighet2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen har varit att synligöra verklighetsåtergivningen i Ørstaviks Kjærlighet i ett försök att närma sig och förstå den kvinnliga protagonistens tillvaro. Analysen har främst utgått från Erich Auerbachs (Mimesis) och Birgitta Holms (Tusen år av ögonblick) systematiska arbetssätt, där Auerbachs metod har styrt angreppssättet och där Holms perspektiv på den kvinnliga tillvaron lagts till. Två specifika textavsnitt valdes ut för att utifrån ett mikroperspektiv lyfta den kvinnliga tillvaron till ett makroperspektiv. Huvudargumentet har varit att visa att en verklighetsframställning av den kvinnliga tillvaron är möjlig genom litteraturen. Liksom andra perspektiv såsom till exempel det postkoloniala och det feministiska kan även Auerbachs metod att tolka verklighetsåtergivningen i litterära texter, ge oss en möjlig bild av människans, och i det här fallet även specifikt kvinnans tillvaro. I Ørstaviks roman har man kunnat tydliggöra flertalet av de kriterier som enligt Auerbach bidrar till en realistisk presentation i verket och på så sätt kan man synliggöra och därmed också tolka en verklighet utifrån texten. I analysen har det också framkommit vad som specifikt utmärker Ørstaviks sätt att genom sitt arbete med språket och texten närma sig verkligheten. I båda texterna kan man till exempel se hur hon arbetar med en konkret ögonblickssituation där hon låter alla skikt få träda fram såsom i ”verkligheten” med rummet och dess inredning, karaktärernas blick, tal och tankar. Men vad som kanske framförallt ska ses som unikt för Ørstaviks sätt att skriva är hur hon fångar en verklighet i sitt sätt att synligöra protagonistens inre och yttre språk och med det visa att det är i relationen däremellan som vi får tillgång till hennes tillvaro som modern, västerländsk kvinna.

    Deo-Victorian Society in the Neo-Victorian Novel: A Study of Sensory Perceptions in Michel Faber´s The Crimson Petal and the White2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the contemporary reader´s fascination with the Victorian period focusing on Michel Faber´s neo-Victorian novel The Crimson Petal and the White (2002). By comparing and contrasting various literary elements that link the Victorian novel to contemporary neo-Victorian fiction it simultaneously shows the similarities and differences between the nineteenth-century Victorian sensorium and that of the present day. It puts particular emphasis on the sensory perceptions of vision and smell, since those two senses are the most prominent ones in Victorian and neo-Victorian fiction and they are also regarded as extremes on the sensory scale. The nineteenth-century urban hygiene campaign transformed, in particular, the perception of olfaction.

    This study concludes that our contemporary society bears many similarities to the Victorian period as a society of great change. The renewed interest in the Victorian signifies the twenty-first century reader´s desire for an idealized world set in another time, which yet appears familiar and recognizable. Neo-Victorian fiction thus functions as a means of knowing both your heritage and finding your own place in the present day. The sensory perception of foremost smell is part of our cultural heritage and thus the neo-Victorian novel mirrors the deo-Victorian concept.

    The Human Animal: An Ecocritical View of Animal Imagery in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The early twentieth century saw the beginning of modern environmentalism. Intellectuals dreamed up solutions to the world’s problems and hoped for a better future being made possible by advances in science and technology. However, Aldous Huxley produced Brave New World which, as this essay argues, mocks the enthusiasm of his intellectual peers. The dystopian novel depicts a future in which technology dehumanizes the population, and uses a great deal of animal imagery to make this point. This essay analyses the use of animal imagery from an ecocritical perspective arguing that the “pathetic fallacy” is reversed. By examining the use of biotechnology and central planning in the novel, and applying the ecocritical perspective that humanity and nature are part of a whole, this essay argues that society resembles a farm for human animals, which is partly expressed by Huxley’s use of the image of a bee colony. The argument is presented that Huxley satirizes his environmentally concerned peers by depicting a totalitarian state which, though unconcerned with environmental issues, echoes the eco-fascist methods proposed by the author’s friends and family.

    Genusskapande i modern ungdomslitteratur: En närläsningsstudie av de mest utlånade ungdomsromanerna på två folkbibliotek år 20172018Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to determine how the gender aspect is highlighted in the description of protagonists within twelwe young adult novels. The novels were the most read novels among teenagers in 2017, according to the statistics from two libraries in Sweden. By intensive reading of all the novels, we could conclude that the protagonists weren’t described with stereotypical characteristics for male and female, regardless of the biological sex. Furthermore, we could also conclude that the construction of gender could be problematised among the protagonists in these twelwe novels.

    Messiasmysteriet i Göran Tunströms roman Ökenbrevet: Identitetsproblematiken ur ett narratologiskt perspektiv2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Göran Tunström (1937 – 2000) är en av våra viktigaste svenska författare av idag och som kanske främst förknippas med sin uppväxtort Sunne. Den värmländska hemorten har blivit litterär miljö i många av Tunströms romaner. Ökenbrevet från 1978 är den roman som min studie handlar om och den utgör i detta avseende ett undantag. Berättaren i Ökenbrevet är Jesus själv och han befinner sig, under fyrtio dygn, i den Mesopotamiska öknen utanför Jerusalem där han umgås med sig själv och stjärnorna. Detta blir utgångspunkten för ett retrospektivt berättande. Men vem berättar Jesus för? Det uppenbaras aldrig någon mottagare till detta brev och sålunda läser vi in oss själva som mottagare av Ökenbrevet.

    Något som alltid fascinerat Tunström är tillblivelsens mysterium, hur vi blir sådana vi är och hur olika händelser och möten i livet formar oss. Sunneromanerna och Juloratoriet är de romaner som Tunström är mest känd för. Den senare är ett ypperligt exempel på och uttryck för de existentiella frågor som fascinerat författaren. Om utgångspunkten för den mänskliga skapelseprocessen, i Juloratoriet, är musiken så är den i Ökenbrevet berättandet i en religiös ram. Ökenbrevet är en berättelse om just sökandet efter identitet och min studie kommer givetvis kretsa kring den frågan. Hur växer identiteten fram via berättandet? Vad som är användbart i mina resonemang är vetenskapen om berättandet, narratologin, och tillsammans med Paul Ricoeur och Peter Brooks plockar jag fram element som kan styrka mina påståenden, vilka i sin tur vägs emot de forskare som har studerat Göran Tunström och som jag valt att lyfta fram för min studie. Anders Tyrberg är den forskare som min studie kommer allra närmast.

    Subjects Matter: The Subject-Object Dichotomy in Toni Morrison's Jazz2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the subject-object dichotomy between men and women in Toni Morrison’s Jazz and the thesis of the essay is that this dichotomy develops into subject-object harmony.

    Through Simone de Beauvoir’s theory regarding the subject-object dichotomy and a close reading of the novel, this essay concludes that Jazz shows the possibility of reciprocal relationships built on friendship. In other words, the dichotomy changes into harmony, which makes it possible for both men and women to reach freedom and fulfilment in transcendence.

    Listening to Jane: A Comparison of the Original Novel Jane Eyre and Three Abridged Audio Book Versions    from the Point of View of Genre.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    While some people enjoy reading full-length novels, most people have a difficult time concentrating on reading or even finding the time to do it. Audio books, especially abridged ones, may be a way for people to enjoy fiction without having to read the whole novel and they can listen to the text at the same time as they do other things. The purpose of this essay is to study whether the abridged audio books can be a valid replacement for the full novel in terms of genre. The essay compares Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë in its full length with three abridged audio books of the same novel. In these three audio versions the original text has been abridged in varying degrees so that the shortest version runs to fifty minutes, the second shortest to three hours and the longest to six hours. The three genres I focus on are the Romance, the Gothic novel and the female Bildungsroman. I present genre-specific features and then analyze how these characteristics are affected in the abridged versions of Jane Eyre.

    Hur genus förmedlas av barn och till barn: En studie om genus i bilderboken som en genre2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Genus är ett begrepp som beskriver hur det socialt och kulturellt är att vara kvinna eller man. Inom litteraturvetenskapen växer intresset för genusinriktade studier där man tittar på hur genus konstrueras i litteraturen. Den här studien undersöker hur genus förmedlas till barn genom en bilderbok. En bilderbok idag är något som är självklart för många men samtidigt oklart. Bilderboken har sin plats på biblioteket och i bokhandeln men det finns inte alla gånger en klar definition av vad bilderböcker är. Syftet med studien är att studera bilderboken som en egen genre och hur en nutida bilderbok kan skildra genus. 

    Analysen kommer att gå in på de valda författarna och illustratörernas, Pija Lindenbaum och Per Gustavsson, uppbyggnad av en bilderbok. Diskussionen kring analysen kommer att vara genusfokuserad och där kommer flicka mot flicka och pojke mot pojke i Lindenbaum och Gustavssons bilderböcker att sättas emot varandra. Studien visar på att Lindenbaum och Gustavsson är normbrytande bilderboksförfattare som med olika typer av huvudkaraktärer bryter normen.

    Liv på egna villkor: En queerteoretisk tolkning av Janne i Peter Pohls Janne, min vän2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här uppsatsen är att tolka Janne i Peter Pohls Janne, min vän utifrån ett queerteoretiskt perspektiv. Genom att använda mig av queerteorins tankar om kön/genus, normalitet och identitet tror jag mig kunna ge en alternativ bild av Jannes liv. Mitt mål är att försöka hitta en bild som skiljer sig från den, så ofta förekommande i tidigare forskning, om flickan som måste klä ut sig till kille för att ha en chans till frihet. Istället kommer jag fokusera på hur Janne, i vänskapen med Krille och gänget, får möjlighet att skapa en identitet och ett liv på egna premisser.

    The War of Ages: A Deconstruction of the Adult-Child Dichotomy in Roald Dahl's Matilda2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This literary essay is centered around Roald Dahl's Matilda and employs deconstructive theory in order to dismantle the binary relationship between adults and children that the novel's author attempts to uphold. The portrayal of adult characters as either evil or passive, and child characters as innocent and helpless, establishes children and grownups as juxtaposed and limits the choice of hero to a child. However, an analysis of the child hero reveals an identity that more resembles an adult. The essay contends that novel's protagonist, a child in body but not in mind, does not support the adult-child dichotomy that Dahl has established in Matilda.

    Dining on Crusade: Sire de Joinville's The Life of Saint Louis and Food2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The number of culinary mss preserved indicates an extensive interest in food and cooking in the Middle Ages. Food also appears in other texts, though rarely defined clearly: 'all of the best' is a common expression. However, in Joinville's The Life of Saint Louis, eating is presented as both social interaction and as a deliberate exclusion from a social context. Food and eating also serve as a reminder of time of year in a different climate, and as an example of the exotic and different world of Outremer. This paper looks at the various meanings conveyed in Joinville's text through food and eating.

    Fragile masculinity and beleaguered womanhood: the construction of white gender in some Swedish asatru groups2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While most Swedish asatru groups are explicit in their support of diversity, there is a significant fringe movement which embraces at least some white supremacist views. Ethnicity cannot be disconnected from gender, and these groups also promote a quasi-feminism which focuses solely on the protection of white womanhood from men of colour. This paper focuses on the intersection of racism, sexism, and religious faith in this fringe of asatru, and on the construction of white gender identity in opposition to a perceived threat from other ethnic groups.
