    A Source for William Rowley's All's Lost by Lust2009In: Notes and Queries, ISSN 0029-3970, E-ISSN 1471-6941, Vol. 56, no 1, p. 84-85Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article focuses on a possible source for William Rowley's play "All's Lost By Lust." Particular attention is given to how excavations and compilations of early European and Arabic texts can provide insight on the influences on the play outside the historical events of the Moorish invasion. The article discusses a three-volume anthology of historical texts titled "Christians and Moors in Spain," edited by Charles Melville and Ahmad Ubaydli which was published by Aris and Phillips between 1988 and 1992. Colin Smith acquired European texts for the first two volumes and Melville and Ubaydli collected Arabic texts for the third volume. The author argues that from these, it's possible to note that there is a Spanish and Arabic text that contain different versions of a story about the fall of Iberia to the Moors.

    Black Males and White Masculinity in Four Renaissance Tragedies of Blood2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to look at how the black North African man is repre-sented in relation to white men in four Renaissance tragedies of blood: Shake-speare’s Titus Andronicus, the multi-authored Lust’s Dominion, William Rowley’s All’s Lost by Lust, and Thomas Rawlins’ The Rebellion. While previous studies have traced the most common racist tropes in 16th and 17th century lit-erature, such as the demonization trope and the animality trope (e.g. Hall), and the historical presence of modern stereotypes of the black man (Jones, Barthelemy, Tokson), they have not looked at Renaissance discourses of white masculinity and their relationship to the construction of the black man. There-fore, the present study focuses on the articulation of the black man as a gendered concept, and specifically its racialized difference in relation to localized white masculinity. I argue that black masculinity is not its own discourse that is separate from white masculinity, but rather is fashioned using the same strategies that enabled white masculine self-fashioning in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, i.e. through the manipulation of discourses to enhance the self and discredit male enemies or rivals. I specifically look at four discourses that were important to the social perception and thus construction of white masculinity in the Renais-sance: relationships to women and the feminine, honour, sociality (humour), and ambition. What emerges as an overall feature in all four tragedies of blood is that there is not a polar distinction between black and white masculinity. My approach builds on Michel Foucault and the idea that discourses structure society and relationships of power. It is also indebted to Reinhardt Koselleck’s theory that concepts have a history, i.e. a contemporary polemic edge in Renaissance even as other meanings looked to the past, and others to the future. I argue that the difference in English tragedies of blood between the black men and the white men in the relationship to honour is temporal; that the distinction in vice and humour is a matter of attitude; and that black men have a blurred rather than distinct relationship to femininity. Racialization oc-curs through the discourse on blackness but also through everyday Renaissance discourses in historically contingent ways.

    Creating Racialized Objects of Horror: The Black Renaissance Villain2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    It is accepted that the roots of modern horror go back through the literary Gothic to old English poetry (in e.g. “Beowulf”), the medieval Romance, and Renaissance drama. This paper will focus on the Renaissance, and in particular on the black villain. Aaron in Titus Andronicus, Eleazar in Lust’s Dominion, Mulymumen in All’s Lost by Lust, and Raymond in The Rebellion are four of the major black villains of the period. They have been studied from the perspective of modern understandings of racial stereotypes but not of racism as based in fear. This paper will deal with the black Renaissance villain and his relationship to the literary terms ‘horror’ and ‘terror’.

    In the modern art lexicon of horror, Noel Coward defines it as characterized by the existence of monsters that are both fearsome and impure, i.e. they are threatening and they violate sanctioned cultural categories in some way. From this point of view, the construction of black men as monsters becomes cognitively definable rather than simply a racial slur. A major focus will therefore be on how their threatening character as villains is gradually exposed as having connections to their blackness, a blackness which violates the expected color of human skin in an all-white society.

    This paper will also go back to Ann Radcliffe’s article “On the Supernatural in Poetry” from 1826 and thus to the beginnings of modern horror criticism. She argued that horror is specific and defined while terror is ambiguous and fostered in the imagination. This theoretical perspective makes it possible to see a clear pattern in the Renaissance plays and trace a clear transition from where the black villain is associated with terror in the play to the point where he becomes seen as both the source and main object of horror.

    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.

    Proustian Desire and the Queering of Masculinity in Gay Cinematic Romance2014In: Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture, ISSN 2148-3841, no 1, p. 28-59Article in journal (Refereed)
    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,

    Läsfrämjande, forskning och kompetensutveckling i Halland2017Report (Other academic)
    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.

    Textual Ethos Studies Or Locating Ethics2005Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What is the relationship between texts and ethics? Who decides the ethics of a text, the writer or the reader? What happens to ethics in texts that portray dreams or psychoses? Is violence always inherently unethical? In dealing with others is violence to both them and oneself ever completely avoidable? Textual Ethos Studies does not attempt to provide definitive answers to these questions so much as to be a springboard to the further discussion of ethics in relation to specific texts. The essays illustrate varying perspectives—ranging from the philosophical to the psychoanalytical to the linguistic—that can be used to localize how texts engage or invite an engagement with ethics. Twenty scholars representing Asia, Europe, Israel, North America, and South Africa highlight the complex relationship between cultural context and ethics, and between the ethical and the unethical. Several essays deal with the study of atypical texts that represent different attitudes toward the violent, the disordered, the traumatized, the psychotic, and the sentimental in order to encourage—or provoke—further discussion of the relevance of these types of texts to ethics.

    Villains and Villainy: Embodiments of Evil in Literature, Popular Culture and Media2011Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    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.
