    Bear traces: a study of the bear in national romantic literature around the Baltic Sea
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The bear is the Nordic region’s largest predator and at the same time one of its most mythical animals. The bear has left traces in ancient religion, place names, linguistic expressions, and literature. Nature and animals can, therefore, be said to play a role also in the formation of “imagined communities” (Anderson 2006) of the north. The bear’s unique place in the culture of the Baltic Sea region is reflected in its recurring presence in literature, particularly in national romantic...

    Con-Science and The Whole: Sara Lidman s Literary Philosophy
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The purpose of this project is to investigate the complex relation between philosophy and literature through a study of the Swedish modernist author Sara Lidman (1923-2004). At the center of the investigation lies Lidman’s concepts ”con-science” (“sam-vettet”) and “The Whole” (Det Hela), found in her literary and non-fictional writing alike. The study aims at showing how the philosophical problematic of “con-science” deeply shapes Lidman’s authorship, and is given literary articulation through...

    Song Lyrics as a Challenge to Transnational Literary History – the Case of ”Vårvindar Friska”
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The project posits one piece of song lyrics as a productive challenge to literary history after the transnational turn: “Vårvindar friska” (Fresh Spring Breezes), by Julia Nyberg. Whereas most research on world literature and transnational circulation has focused on the novel and the already canonized authors, this project starts from an entirely different angle. The point of departure is popular culture and social functions, specific uses and manipulations. Different song practices have made...

    Literature as Event and Action: The Performativity of Literature in Sweden 1800 - 2008
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    When Selma Lagerlöf appears in front of an audience to read from her work, the capacity of the literary text for interacting with and affecting its receivers is manifested. This is literature in the form of action and it is most clearly manifested in the performance, the event. The project writes the history of Swedish literature as events and actions, not primarily as meanings contained in it. The planned project Literature as Event and Action: The Performativity of Literature in Sweden...

    Nordic World Literature
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    To what extent has Nordic literature contributed to world literature and in what way has this literary export shaped the world's view of the Nordic countries? Reception theory is a central element in modern literary studies. Literary scholars, in Sweden and other countries, have often studied how foreign literature has affected native literature. The opposite perspective has, naturally, not been as commonly practiced. In this project, three researchers connected to the Centre for...

    Translated Local Cultures. Swedish Proletarian Realism in English Translation
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Departing from the assumption that Swedish proletarian writers were, among other things, devoted to writing a local culture, this project examines the ways in which textual signs of locality transform as the novels are translated into English. The literary material includes eleven works: Harry Martinson’s Kap Farväl and Nässlorna blomma , Vilhelm Moberg’s trilogy on Knut Toring, Eyvind Johnson’s Nu var det 1914 , Jan Fridegård’s Jag, Lars Hård , Moa Martinson’s Kvinnor och...

    Made in Italy. A diachronic study of literary circulation and translation in the semiperihery
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Focusing on the translation flow from Italy to Sweden, the primary aim of this project is to examine the changes that the symbolic capital of Italian literature has undergone in the Swedish context during the last century and its manifestations in the localizing practices involved in the translation process. By emphasizing the relation of two semiperipheral literatures on the global translation market, the project could modulate the somewhat schematic thinking of transnational circulation as a...

    From Periphery to Center: Swedish Literature on the French Book Market
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The purpose of my project is to describe the transmission of literature (fiction) from a small language area (the ”vernacular” or the ”periphery”, in this case: Sweden) to a larger one (the ”cosmopolitan” or the ”centre”, in this case: France). This transmission (and translation) of literature is to be seen as the meeting of two literary systems. To describe the logic behind the acts of communication, important nodes, places and actors (translators, publishers, book fairs, state officials...

    Cosmopolitanizing from Within: Migrant Writers in Sweden
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This subproject explores the social world of the young generation of migrant writers and their work, fiction and journalism, ranging from established writers such as Jonas Hassen Khemiri to debutantes such as Pooneh Rohi. By uncovering often cruel experiences of racism in a country which boasts an ethnically inclusive policy, yet has an expanding anti-immigration party (the Sweden Democrats), these writers have both a Swedish and an international readership. The project’s contribution to the...

    Cosmopolitan Ideals and National Literatures in Early 20th Century Sweden, Finland and Estonia
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Katarina Leppänen's project "Cosmopolitan Ideals and National Literatures in Early 20th Century Sweden, Finland and Estonia" engages in a region that has been largely invisible, and thus undertheorised, in contemporary research on transnational literatures, thus emphasising Europe as one culture with a few large languages (Dainotti). The unifying theses for the project are threefold. Firstly, a perspective from northeastern Europe will offer a theoretical and geographical diversification in...

    Swedish Images of Italy: Travel Literature in the Age of Liberty (1719–72)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Swedish travel literature from Italy during the Age of Liberty (Frihetstiden, 1719–72) engages in several of the main cultural and political debates of the time. Swedish travellers show both a reorientation in the understanding of classical Antiquity, as a result of the sensational archaeological discoveries at Pompeii and Herculaneum, and a deep interest in the various claims for social reform that characterise the Age of Enlightenment. Their representations of Italy convey new approaches to...
