    ”När han är arg är han turkisk”: Identitetsskapande i Lin Hallbergs kompisbokstrilogi2008In: Educare, ISSN 1653-1868, E-ISSN 2004-5190, no 1, p. 7-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With a background in current theories of identification and indentifying processes, our aim is to study how ideologies of identity interpellate children in narrative texts such as Lin Hallberg’s trilogy of Kompisboken, Bästisboken and Svikarboken. We study how the texts offer, mirror and perform various identities in their characterization of children and adults in a multicultural context. The issue is how the different characters are created through chains of articulation, of equivalence and difference, of properties, actions and performances. The four main child characters are construed around two dyads – male and female, native and foreign – and as well as the minor characters – parents and teachers – they display subject positions which are restricted and basically locked in a normative matrix. Thus, these texts do not afford children alternative identity constructions or resistance to stereotypical identities of gender or ethnicity.

    The Mah Jong Game of Life: Storytelling, Identity and Orientalist Discourse in Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This project examines the connection between the representations of Chinese American women and the Orientalist discourse, as depicted in Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club. Using a deconstructive and intersectional approach, the project focuses on four interconnected constituents that regulate the novel’s main structural and thematic elements: Narrative Structure; Mother-Daughter Relationships; Language, Writing and Identity; and Feminist Affirmations. The project’s aim is to understand the logic of the novel’s representation by juxtaposing and analyzing the contrasting arguments within each of the sections. Though somewhat inconclusive, this project addresses the ambiguity of Tan’s work in hopes of expanding the critical understanding of the novel.

    Tema:: Tio fallstudier i medicinsk humaniora2016In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 93, no 3, p. 229-233Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Medical Humanities har varit ett etablerat begrepp i den engelsktalande forskarvärlden sedan mer än ett decennium. Inom forskningsfältet har tidskrifter och centrumbildningar skapats och introducerande böcker getts ut. Under sitt engelska namn eller försvenskad till medicinsk humaniorahar området också börjat göra insteg i Sverige, och har på olika sätt etablerats på flera lärosäten i landet. Fältet har under de senaste åren introducerats och diskuterats i ett antal skrifter, och alla landets läkarutbildningar har någon form av humanistiskt inslag i sin kursgivning. Samtidigt som mycket hänt under de senaste åren är humanistisk forskning inom fältet medicin, hälsa och vård inte på något sätt nytt i Sverige, utan i flera ämnen finns en lång forskningstradition med väl utarbetade teorier, metoder och frågeställningar. Medicinsk humaniora kan alltså ses som både något nytt och något ganska väletablerat. Vi menar dock att något är på väg att hända när fältet nu formerar sig på ett aktivt sätt med fler ämnen inblandade och när det går i en tydligare mångdisciplinär, och kanske också tvärdisciplinär, riktning. Med detta temanummer om medicinsk humaniora önskar vi synliggöra fältet och betona bredden av de ämnen som kan bidra inom det. Därför har vi i det här numret av Socialmedicinsk tidskrift samlat ett antal yngre forskare som på något sätt är eller har varit knutna till Lunds universitet.

    Live Action Role Playing and Engagement with Literature2023In: The Routledge Companion to Literary Media / [ed] Astrid Ensslin; Julia Round; Bronwen Thomas, Routledge, 2023, 1, p. 502-512Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The digital age has seen an unprecedented proliferation of literary content across different media, involving different audiences. As a consequence of this, scholars are directing their attention to how literature lives on beyond the book. While much of this research focuses on forms of intermediality, less attention has been given to embodied, participatory and interactive practices where literature is used in a variety of ways. In this chapter, we will discuss what happens to literature when it is used in physical, collaborative gameplay, focusing on live action role playing (larp), specifically larps in the Nordic tradition.

    Since larp is located at the intersection of a number of different cultural expressions, we draw on scholarly work on gaming, performance, adaptation and participatory culture to discuss how literary material is used in three different larps, at which we have carried out fieldwork. Fortune and Felicity (2017) engaged with all of Jane Austen’s work, taking place over five days in period costume and setting. Located at the actual Elsinore Castle, Inside Hamlet (2017) adapted Shakespeare’s play to a revolutionary, decadent context. Using Thomas Vinterberg’s film The Celebration as the frame story, A Nice Evening With the Family (2018) thematised bourgeois family trauma through the use of a number of nineteenth-century Scandinavian plays, like Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.

    Although thematically diverse, these larps raise common questions: What happens when a literary storyworld is materialised in embodied practices such as live action role playing? How can the unfolding story be understood collectively and individually and what storytelling mechanisms are used? What does it feel like to embody characters and actions from a work of fiction? By addressing these questions, this chapter highlights the intricate relation between literature and its collective embodiment in larp.

    Gitarrsolon som folkbildning och hantverk. Bland proffs och amatörer på musikhus och folkhögskolor 1975–19902005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Argumenten för att studier av ungdomars värderingar och hur de möter, formar och formas av institutionella strukturer och de värderingar som råder i dessa är inte svåra att finna. Det är också intressant att se hur ungdomar organiserar sig, skaffar nödvändiga resurser och bildar eller knyter an till olika nätverk. I denna text vill jag framför allt lyfta fram frågeställningar relaterade till amatörism och professionalitet och folkbildningsinstitutionernas roll. Min ambition är dessutom att försöka relatera detta till en lokal och regional kontext.

    Texter i dialog: En studie i gymnasieelevers litteraturläsning2006Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis is a reception study and the focus of the research is on what happens during the reading process when an upper secondary school class reads fiction. The theoretical basis consists of theories of reading as transaction and the envisionment-building and dialogic classroom. A process-based and relational perspective on reading, writing and oral exchange in teaching has been central. The empirical material, which consists of the pupils’ texts, discussions about literature, evaluations and interviews, has been collected from the teacher's own work during a period of three years. The questions to be studied are: What understanding do the pupils build and what reflection is expressed in their written texts and discussions? What touches their own lives? How does the classroom become a secure place for the exchange of experience and knowledge? The thesis also examines the pupils’ reading of the three novels The Catcher in the Rye, Musselstranden (Mussel beach) and The Stranger. Reader portraits describe and discuss three pupils’ reading and their thoughts about and experiences of studying literature. The results show that while writing their reading logs and other written tasks, pupils have a strong need to make written connections between experiences in their own social worlds and the worlds in the texts. Discussions show that exchanges of experience and knowledge have occurred. The reader portraits show that the literature takes on different dimensions for different pupils, depending on their background, socialisation and needs. The study indicates that there are opportunities for further work with the social worlds of the texts and the social worlds the pupils live in. The thesis discusses how such a reading can be included in enquiry-based teaching of literature where the pupils are also allowed to create new artefacts in the extended classroom.

    Responsiveness to culture through literature: Creative writing as culturally responsive pedagogy2024In: Educare, ISSN 1653-1868, E-ISSN 2004-5190, no 1, p. 62-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This position paper argues that creative writing can be a fruitful tool for cultural responsiveness in secondary education and calls for creative writing to be viewed as a more natural part of language teachers’ culturally responsive pedagogical repertoire. The integration of creative writing exercises in culturally responsive language arts education may rouse a strengthened voice, benefit cultural literacy, engender the discovery and exploration of individual funds of knowledge, enhance relational competence, and bring about the critical crafting of and engagement with cultural representations. These arguments are convergent with the view that teaching, in order to be culturally responsive, should originate from students’ funds of knowledge, taking both subject content and relational aspects into consideration – and this paper proposes that creative writing is uniquely positioned to facilitate these aims.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores transmediation between qualified media types. It discusses the adaptation of a literary canonical work, Joe Wright’s 2005 novel-to-film adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice a novel that repeatedly has been adapted into new contexts and audiences. The qualified medium of opera implies certain conventions but also certain limitations of space, time and voice. The natural venue for experiencing an opera is the stage. An experienced opera or musical librettist will consider where to put such music highlights when writing the text. Both drama text and opera score are a set of directions fixed in a script but resulting in different kinds of performances. It has been our aim to demonstrate in specific analysis the very abstract idea that all media transformation is interplay or a negotiation between transmediality and medium specificity.

    John Barth and Postmodernism: Spatiality, Travel, Montage2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    John Barth is one of the major novelists of American postmodernism. Barth’s contribution to the practice and theory of postmodernism is in this sense undisputable. However, much of the criticism dealing with his work in relationship to postmodernism is prompted by Barth’s own theories of “exhaustion” and “replenishment,” leaving his writing relatively untouched by theories of postmodernism in general. This study aims to change that. What is of particular interest here is the relationship between Barth’s aesthetic and the ideology critical work of the historical avant-gardes, which were the first to mobilize art against itself and its institutional practices and demands. This mobilization often took the form of an intentional shattering of the boundary between life and art and a subsequent critique of notions such as originality and organicity. To emphasize the idea of literature as practice (life), I focus on the notion of spatiality as it is defined and conceptualized within Marxism and Critical Theory, particularly by Fredric Jameson, Jean Baudrillard, Guy Debord, and Johannes Fabian. As many of these discussions show, spatiality is connected to human consciousness and material reproduction, generating not only the subject-object distinction, but also notions of temporality, historicity, and causality. There is, however, a paradox involved in the production of space. On the one hand, space can only be generated through systems of representation; on the other, our notion of reality requires space to be lived and authentic. The ability to produce space is therefore always connected to metaphorical skills. Yet, space exists only as social practice, as a field of authenticity. In this context, travel is seen as one of the fundamental spatial practices with which such a literalization is made. Examining Barth’s metafictional parodies in the light of these theories of space and subjectivity, I try to engage the question of ideology critique in postmodernism. My first chapter focuses on the postmodernism debate in America towards the 1990s, where I give a general historical overview of the issues discussed and elaborate connections to various theories and strategies of the historical avant-gardes. Next, I introduce the concept of spatiality, which has become the central issue defining postmodernism. Spatiality is generally seen as weakening of historicity and temporality, and by extension, of reality itself. I try to dispute this idea and relate the “spatialization of time” occurring within postmodernism to ideas of critical art. Thirdly, I explore the relationship of travel to the production of space. Here I suggest that travel above all is an acculturation of the real, a spatial practice through which reality acquires a meaningful and coherent structure. Chapter Two focuses on how these issues of spatiality, travel, and representation work their way into the fiction and essays of John Barth. The last chapter is a close reading of one of Barth’s later novels, The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor (1991), which aims to bring the previous discussions into proximity with one specific text. Here I argue that the montage can offer a critical model for understanding the spatiality of postmodernism, particularly its “simultaneity of the radically disparate.” My discussion ends by suggesting that such a take on postmodernism may well be perceived as a mimesis of reality, particularly a recognition of the collective nature of self and world.

    Läromedel i svenska: En analys av läromedelstexter ur ett genusperspektiv2022Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Inledningsvis kommer detta arbete att förtydliga vad läromedel är, som sedan följs upp av en bakgrundförklaring av genus, läroplanen och läroboken. Syftet med detta examensarbete var att få djupare förståelse om hur genusperspektivet uttrycker sig i läromedlet Livet i Bokstavslandet (Stark, 2015; Stark, Wedsberg & Örn, 2016; Stark, Wedsberg & Örn, 2017). Till detta gjordes en textanalys av både bilder och text i läseböckerna för årskurserna 1–3 med kvalitativa inslag. De teorier som arbetet grundar sig på är Hirdmans genusteori och Connells syn på maskulinitet. Även Fagrells (2000) sätt att kategorisera kön och Nikolajevas (2017) perspektiv på genus i barnlitteraturen lyfts i denna del av arbetet. Tidigare forskning som har gjorts inom samma forskningsområde kommer också att presenteras under senare del av arbetet där jag tar stöd av Eilards (2008) avhandling och skriver om könsrollerna och jämställdhet i läroböckerna. Begränsningar har gjorts då urvalet har varit att undersöka just läseböckerna. Vid textanalysen har jag utgått från hermeneutik som är den vetenskapsteori som handlar om att det är tolkningen och förklaringen av texten som är centrala delar i en analys. I resultatet av analysen framkommer det att det förekommer könsstereotyper och normbrytande beskrivningar i läseböckerna.

    The Development of The Trope of Hauntings in Gothic Fiction: A Comparative Analysis of Wuthering Heights and The Haunting of Hill House2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 14 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The research conducted in this paper will concern the development of the Gothic trope of hauntings in a comparative analysis of two gothic novels, Wuthering Heights (1847) by Emily Brontë and The Haunting of Hill House (1959) by Shirley Jackson. The analysis will focus on how hauntings of various forms are presented and what they represent in the two texts before and after the development of psychoanalytical studies, particularly Sigmund Freud’s conceptualization of “Das Unheimliche”. The analysis will be supported by cultural and historical notions and background scholarship.

    Identity and History in Non-Anglophone Comics2023Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    his book explores the historical and cultural significance of comics in languages other than English, examining the geographic and linguistic spheres which these comics inhabit and their contributions to comic studies and academia.

    The volume brings together texts across a wide range of genres, styles and geographic locations including the Netherlands, Latin America, Greece, Sweden, Poland, Finland, Portugal, Ireland, the Czech Republic, among others. These works have remained out of reach for speakers of languages other than the original and do not receive the scholarly attention they deserve due to their lack of English translations. This book highlights the richness and diversity these works add to the corpus of comic art and comic studies that Anglophone comics scholars can access to broaden the collective perspective of the field and forge links across regions, genres and comic traditions.

    Part of the Global Perspectives in Comics Studies series, this volume spans many continents and languages. It will be of interest to researchers and students of comics studies, literature, cultural studies, popular culture, art and design, illustration, history, film studies and sociology.

    Swedish football in a transnational context2003Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Since 1990, and particularly since Sweden gained EU membership in 1994, an ever-increasing number of Swedish football players (notably males) have moved abroad to spend at least some part of their career with foreign clubs. This migration does not take place in a haphazard way; on the contrary, it follows distinct paths mainly depending upon the players' age, ethnicity, gender, and the standard and geographical localisation of the Swedish club that the player was licensed for before migration. It is possible to discern specific categories of players depending upon what leagues they have migrated to and what types of contract they have with their new, foreign clubs. This text presents the results of a study on Swedish football players that have migrated abroad since 1990. It also gives a possible explanation for the underlying causes that has brought about the migration pattern evident in this study.

    Reading and Materiality: Conditions of Digital Reading2022In: The Digital Reading Condition / [ed] Maria Engberg; Iben Have; Birgitte Stougaard Pedersen, Routledge, 2022Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The conditions of reading are shaped by materialities of that which is read. In the wake of digital publishing, reading activities have been impacted by the affordances of digital technologies, and the chapter “Reading and materiality: conditions of digital reading” charts some of the influential ideas on the material nature of digital reading, and arguing that print-centric notions of what constitutes “good” reading have at times overshadowed an in-depth reckoning of the role that digital technologies play today. The perceived dichotomy between so-called digitally born and digitized materials does not delineate a border between “digital” and “print” reading, even though many of the assumptions about the latter still permeate perceptions of what is more valuable to read. The digital reading condition that the chapter introduces does not exclude any forms. Rather, the current media moment includes print, audiobooks, printed books in all forms, as well as a multitude of digital forms in a complex, interlocking media economy.

    Situated reading2022In: The Digital Reading Condition / [ed] Maria Engberg; Iben Have; Birgitte Stougaard Pedersen, Routledge, 2022, p. 200-207Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Media materiality matters for how reading happens, through digital technologies, print, audio, and so on. However, equally important for our understanding of what happens in each individual reader's experience is the place and situation in which the reading occurs. The surroundings, what the reader is doing while reading, what occurs around them are part of what we discuss in this chapter as situated reading. Our interests go beyond the reading mediation itself to address how the reader's sensing body experiences each reading instance. We seek to decouple the naturalized link between our understanding of what constitutes reading, the medium, and the situations in which reading occurs.

    I kursplanen för svenska står att eleverna ska ges förutsättningar att utveckla den egna identiteten och sin förståelse för omvärlden. Syftet med min empiriska studie är att undersöka hur lärare med hjälp av en skönlitterär text i sin undervisning kan stödja elevers förmåga att läsa och förstå skönlitteratur.

    Den metod som jag har använt i denna studie är kvalitativ metod. Jag har använt semistrukturerade intervjuer och intervjuat undervisande lärare samt fyra elever. Jag har gjort tre lektionsobservationer för att uppnå syftet med min studie.

    Resultatet visar att när läraren väljer en skönlitterär text till sin undervisning använder hon sin erfarenhet som lärare i svenska och gör didaktiska val samt tar hänsyn till sin elevgrupps förutsättningar och erfarenheter. Vid litteratursamtalen i undervisningen hörs både elevernas och lärarens röst. Eleverna kan diskutera och resonera kring texten samt göra tolkningar utifrån sin förmåga.

    Studien visar att lärare med hjälp av en utmanade och krävande skönlitterär text i sin undervisning kan stödja elevers utveckling av sin förmåga att läsa och förstå skönlitteratur.

    Overpopulation and Authoritarian Regime: The Villains in an Anthropocene Era2024Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 14 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores the dynamic landscape of Anthropocene fiction, using novels such as John Lanchester’s The Wall and Sam J. Miller’s Blackfish City as lenses through which to explore the aftermath of climate change. Both narratives tackle the question: what unfolds in the wake of environmental disaster? Focused on the consequences of flooding, these novels depict worlds grappling with diminishing resources and an acute scarcity of habitable land, intensifying the challenges of overpopulation. In response, the remaining governments resort to authoritarian measures, fostering oppression and control.

    This exploration unfolds through the lens of four primary Anthropocene themes: climate change, overpopulation, authoritarianism, and rebellion. By examining how these novels navigate these themes, the essay contributes to the emerging field of Anthropocene fiction. Moreover, it highlights the urgent need for addressing climate change while underscoring the social justice implications embedded in these narratives. John Lanchester’s The Wall and Sam J. Miller’s Blackfish City serve as vital contributors to this literary landscape, shedding light on the intricate interplay between humanity and the environment in the face of Anthropocene challenges.

    Agda Östlund och Helga Karlsen: två socialdemokratiska kvinnliga pionjärer i Norden, en komparativ retorisk studie2023In: Nordisk arbejderlitteratur: Internationale perspektiver og forbindelser / [ed] Anker Gemzøe, Nicklas Freisleben Lund, Magnus Nilsson och Erik Svendsen, Aalborg Universitetsforlag , 2023, p. 139-150Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här komparativa retoriska studien har varit att belysa kvinnliga arbetarpolitiker i Norden på det politiska fältet i en period när klass och kön var problematiska kategorier, som inte heller självklart samordnades. Jämförelsen har satt in den socialdemokratiska kvinnorörelsen i ett nordiskt sammanhang. 

    Arbetarlitteraturforskningen har tidigare främst behandlat kanoniska litterära genrer. Genom att jag har undersökt andra medier och andra texttyper utifrån ett litteraturvetenskapligt och historievetenskapligt perspektiv har jag förhoppningsvis vidgat förståelsen av arbetarlitteraturen och arbetarhistorien och på så vis bidragit till både litteraturvetenskaplig och historievetenskaplig forskning. 

    I Agda Östlunds och Helga Karlsens journalistik i Morgonbris respektive Arbeiderkvinnen är hemmotivet återkommande vilket skulle kunna ses som ett svar på det retoriska problemet att nå fram till arbetarkvinnorna och väcka deras politiska medvetande. 

    Hos Karlsen är klassperspektivet  genomgående överordnat könsperspektivet. Hos Östlund finns ett exempel där könsperspektivet är överordnat klassperspektivet när hon skildrar hur hon och de andra riksdagskvinnorna går samman över partigränserna för att lägga fram en gemensam motion. Skillnaden kan möjligen kopplas samman med den politiska åtskillnaden mellan könen som skedde i Sverige när kvinnorna erövrat rösträtt och blivit valbara till riksdagen. 

    Att klassperspektivet är mer framträdande hos Karlsen kan hänga samman med skillnader mellan den norska och svenska arbetarrörelsen. Ännu långt in på 1920-talet använde sig norska Arbeiderpartiet av en revolutionär retorik och det skulle dröja innan partiet anpassade sig till en parlamentarisk verklighet.

    "Från mörkret stiga vi mot ljuset": Den socialdemokratiska memoaren som historieskrivning, retorisk genre och litterär konstruktion2021In: Identitet i en föränderlig värld: sju nya historieskrivningar / [ed] Erik Alvstad, Irene Andersson och Ingmarie Danielsson Malmros, Malmö: Malmö universitet, 2021, p. 113-143Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although Social Democratic Memoirs comprise an extensive material, these texts have not attracted any systematic analysis as a distinct and yet varied form of textual genre. The focus in this MA-paper is the Swedish Social Democratic Memoir as a rhetoric genre. The main primary material is memoirs of the pioneer August Palm (1849–1922), the father of the nation Tage Erlander (1901–1985) and the political leader Göran Persson (1949–), published 1905, 1972–82 and 2007, respectively. The general aim is to find out what is the driving power of the memoirs and, more specifically, to shed light on the images of the party history and the history of the welfare state. The method is a comparative analysis of these texts. The overarching rhetoric of Social Democratic Memoirs relate to a general ideological theme corresponding to the progression from darkness to light. Each memoir emerges from some special exigence (L.F. Bitzer, C.R. Miller), that is, an immediate need – in these cases actualized by the current position of the party and the rhetorical demands on a party member’s text commenting on that situation. Central questions are: What motivates the memoirs and how do the memoirs relate to what motivates them? The exigence which the memoirs of August Palm seem to emerge from is how the labour movement can be mobilized in the fight for the right to vote. By creating himself as a popular hero and pioneer Palm can inspire and raise the working class in that fight. The exigence which the memoirs of Tage Erlander seem to respond to is that the social democracy is challenged both from left and right during the oil crisis and depression. He writes a success story about the building of the welfare state. However, the rhetorical situation change, and so does the rhetorical strategy in later volumes. In the memoirs of Göran Persson the new liberal social democratic politics become a part of the party tradition and the progression from darkness to light. This rhetorical strategy suggests that the memoirs emerge from an exigence where many grassroot-members point out Persson as responsible for the crisis policy in the 1990’s.

    "Mister Speaker! I therefore have no claim": Agda Östlund’s Entrance in the Parliamentary Debate in March 1922 in a Historical and Rhetorical Perspective2022In: Journal of Working-Class Studies, ISSN 2475-4765, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 5-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In March 1922 the Social Democrat Agda Östlund (1870–1942) speaks as the first female member of Swedish Parliament in the Second Chamber due to her own proposal for the state to take responsibility for arranging suitable work for tuberculosis patients when they leave the sanatorium, so that they can complete their convalescence.It may seem that democracy was once and for all establishedwhen women were finally included in the Parliament. But that was not the case. The question is how Agda Östlund acts in a formative historical stage after the first democratic election, how she finds a speaking position and how her speech can be understood in relation to the negotiation of the meaning of women’s civil and democratic rights.This article includes a contextualisation and a text analysis where I go into how the text relates to a rhetorical situation. I see Agda Östlund’s utterances as rhetorical in accordance with the theoretical perspectives established by Lloyd F. Bitzer where the key concepts are rhetorical situation, problem, restrictions and audience.Agda Östlund uses the mother role as a rhetorical strategy, connects the issue of tuberculosis to the home and everyday environment and nursing, which are traditionally female spheres, and highlights class injustice in the possibility of completing convalescence after sanitation.The mother role and the factual and low-key argumentation have two purposes in this speech –partly to adapt to the Parliament order, and partly to present the actual issue. The rhetorical strategy is about using the mother role as a persona to make the class perspective a matter of care, nursing and compassion. Östlund’s entry into the Parliament debate can be described as a rhetorically fragile situation because she speaks for the very substance of her own motion while at the same time following the committee’s line, in which she herself is a part, and demands a rejection of it.

    Problems and possibilities for Swedish working-class literature in a neoliberal age2023In: Journal of Working-Class Studies, ISSN 2475-4765, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 71-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent decades, inequality has increased in Sweden. The increasing gaps are connected with policies that are often called neoliberal. How does working-class literature relate to these social problems and what literary possibilities does it open up? In this article I discuss these questions based on some literary examples from Swedish contemporary working-class literature. These literary examples have attracted much attention. My perspective is that I see working-class literature as literature with a distinct use value and a literature that has specific functions in the working-class literature context (Felski, 2008).

    Kristian Lundberg, Johan Jönson and Jenny Wrangborg all give personal accounts from workplaces. Such can be valuable. The problem with Lundberg and Jönson is that they tend to be introverted and egocentric. Especially Lundberg lacks the class perspective. Perhaps Lundberg’s Yarden (The Yard, 2009) should be described as confessional literature rather than working-class literature. With Susanna Alakoski the working-class is hidden behind the concept of poverty. The working-class as actor is absent. The labor movement as well. Instead, it is the middle class who appear as actor. Through the role of jester, Jönson makes class society visible. The role of jester could be seen as a specific rhetorical strategy and a literary device to create a distancing effect, or Verfremdungseffekt. Wrangborg connects to the legacy of early working-class literature with struggle poems. From within the workplace she describes work situations and experiences of class.

    Emil Boss takes a close look at language and concepts in a postpolitical age when old concepts have changed meaning. It is a crucial task for working-class literature to explain, interpret and examine old concepts that have changed meaning in a new political era, when the labor movement has lost contact with previous ideals and social democratic governments pursue rightwing politics, thus making it difficult to distinguish between left and right.
