    Marxism and Human Rights against Capitalism2022In: Encyclopaedia of Marxism and Education / [ed] Maisuria, Alpesh, Leiden: Brill Academic Publishers, 2022, p. 435-452Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses Marxism and its relationship to human rights in a contemporary context. Our main argument is that universal human rights, as formulated, e.g., in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), cannot be fully realised under capitalism, but that a politics defending and promoting such rights has the potential to contribute to the advancement of internationalist, working class politics furthering political emancipation within the current order, and even to contribute to a socialist critique of the capitalist mode of production aiming for human emancipation.

    Glossary: Collaborative Future-Making2020Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Collaborative Future-Making is a research platform at the Faculty of Culture and Society at Malmö University that is concerned with how to envision, elaborate and prototype multiple, inclusive, and sustainable futures. The platform gathers around 20 researchers that share a methodological interest in how critical perspectives from the humanities and social sciences can be combined with the constructive and collaborative aspects of making and prototyping in design research.

    The research centers around two major themes:

    • Critical imagination​, which focuses on how basic assumptions, norms and structures can be challenged to widen the perspectives on what can constitute socially, culturally, ecologically and economically sustainable and resilient futures.
    • Collaborative engagements​, which focuses on how we can set up more inclusive collaborations to prototype and discuss alternative futures, engaging not only professionals and policy makers but also citizens and civil society.

    During 2019 the research group set out to make a shared glossary for collaborative future-making. The glossary is multiple in purpose and exists in several versions. Hopefully there will be more to come. At first, the making and articulation of the glossary was used within the research group as an exercise to share concepts that we found central to collaborative future-making, coming from different disciplines. This published version of the glossary was assembled to be used during a workshop called ​Imagining Collaborative Future-Making,​ which gathered a group of international researchers from different disciplines.

    The collection of concepts reflects the heterogeneous and diverse character of the research group and a strong belief in that plurality regarding ontologies and epistemologies will be crucial to be able to handle the multiple uncertainties and complex challenges we have to face in the future. Some of the concepts are already well established within different research communities, but gain a specific meaning in relation to the research area. Others are more preliminary attempts to advance our understanding or probe into new potential practices within collaborative future-making. In that sense the concepts in the glossary are well situated and grounded in past and ongoing research within this research group, at the same time as they are meant to suggest, propose and point towards practices and approaches yet to come.

    The concepts in this glossary are not only meant to be descriptive but also performative. In that sense, assembling and circulating this glossary is part of collaborative future-making. As pointed out by Michelle Westerlaken in her articulation of “Doing Concepts” (see page 15), “...without proposing, critiquing, or working towards a common or uncommon understanding of certain concepts, it becomes impossible to ‘make futures’ in any deliberate fashion.”

    Abstract [sv]

    I denna antologi uppmärksammas såväl äldre som nyare arbetarlitteratur från flera av de nordiska länderna. Dessutom anläggs en rad olika teoretiska och metodologiska perspektiv på arbetarlitteraturen. Snarare än att ge en samlad bild av den nordiska arbetarlitteraturen försöker antologin alltså visa upp denna litteraturs många fasetter och den mångfald som präglar forskningen om den.

    Reexamining the Proletarian Fictional Autobiography: Class, Gender and Aesthetics in Agnes Smedley’s Daughter of Earth2020In: Nordic Journal of English Studies, ISSN 1502-7694, E-ISSN 1654-6970, Vol. 19, no 5, p. 1-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is accepted truth that proletarian literature is marked by a tension, or even contradiction, emanating from the social conflict between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie. This article explores these contradictions within the proletarian autobiographical novel form, focusing on Agnes Smedley’s Daughter of Earth. Smedley challenges predominately masculine discourse in working-class literature, boldly placing female desire at the center of her political project. Smedley intimately ties her understanding of class with her gender identity, something that was at loggerheads with contemporary leftist male critics who championed her working-class sensibility but resisted the gendered implications of her work. Our article pushes against a solely nationalistic viewpoint that many critics have embraced. To better understand the genre, we place Smedley’s novel in conversation with Swedish working-class writer Moa Martinson’s 1936 autobiographical novel Mor gifter sig [My Mother Gets Married]. By doing so, we analyze the nationalistic context of Smedley’s book, underlining how being ‘poised between bourgeois and revolutionary discursive traditions’ is something historical and place-based, and arguing that this is key to understanding the category of proletarian fictional autobiography.

    Working-Class Literature(s) Volume II: Historical and International Perspectives2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this collection is to contribute to the forging of a more robust, politically useful, and theoretically elaborate understanding of working-class literature(s).

    These essays map a substantial terrain: the history of working-class literature(s) in Argentina, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Africa and Ireland. Together with the essays in a previous volume – which cover Russia/The Soviet Union, The USA, Finland, Sweden, The UK, and Mexico – they give a complex picture of working-class literature(s) from an international perspective, without losing sight of national specificities.

    By capturing a wide range of definitions and literatures, the two volumes give a broad and rich picture of the many-facetted phenomenon of working-class literature(s), disrupt narrow understandings of the concept and phenomenon, as well as identify and discuss some of the most important theoretical and historical questions brought to the fore by the study of this literature.If read as stand-alone chapters, each contribution gives an overview of the history and research of a particular nation’s working-class literature. If read as a whole (which we hope you do), they contribute toward a more complex understanding of the global phenomenon of working-class literature(s).

    Abstract [en]

    Magnus Nilsson: “The Aesthetics and Politics of Work in the Poetry of Stig Sjödin”

    This article analyses one of the most prominent motifs in Swedish working-class writer Stig Sjödin’s (1917-1993) poetry, namely that of work. The main argument is that Sjödin’s attitudes toward work were conditioned both by his Marxist worldview, and by the different audiences for which he was writing. The poetry that he published in the labor-movement press aimed at creating class consciousness among workers, and presented work both as something marked by oppression and injustice, and as a source of pride. In his poetry collections, he presented industrial labor to an audience outide the working class, with the aim of making them aware of the plight of the working class. Here, work was presented in a more univocally negative way than in the poetry priented in the labor-movement press.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the relationship between Swedish poet Stig Sjödin (1917–1993) and the the notion of being a ”working-class writer”, with a focus on how it changed over time and varied between contexts. Both his self-appraisal and descriptions of him by literary critics are analyzed. The aim is to contribute to ongoing theoretical discussions in Nordic literary studies about how to understand the concept of working-class writer, for example by highlighting one often neglected definition of the working-class writer as being a writer active within the labour movement.

    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish poet Stig Sjödin (1917–1993) is generally recognized as an important figure in both Swedish literary history and the history of Swedish working-class literature. This status rests almost exclusively on poetrycollections published in the 1940s, 1950s and 1970s. In addition to this, however, Sjödin was also active as a poet within the labour movement. By including his activities there, and discussing their relationship to his poetry collections, this article aims at broadening the understanding of Sjödin’s oeuvre. It also argues that research on modern Swedish working-class literature must transcend the traditional realm of literature.

    Artikelns syften är a) att visa att anledningen till att den moderna svenska arbetarrörelselitteraturen har behandlats så styvmoderligt i litteraturhistorieskrivningen är att den inte ryms inom det litteraturvetenskapliga litteraturbegreppet, och b) att utveckla ett vidare – pragmatiskt och induktivt, men också kreativt och kanske rent av spekulativt – litteraturbegrepp som skulle kunna rymma också denna litteratur.

    Class, Taste, and Literature: The Case of Ivar Lo-Johansson and Swedish Working- Class Literature2019In: Journal of Working-Class Studies, ISSN 2475-4765, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 24-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the tradition of Swedish working-class literature and the relationship between taste and class. First, I analyze the representation of this relationship in Swedish working-class writer Ivar Lo-Johansson’s novel Kungsgatan [King Street] from 1935. Thereafter, I discuss the whole tradition of Swedish working-class literature—in which Lo- Johansson’s novel occupies a central position. This tradition constitutes a challenge to received ideas about class and taste, mainly because its consecration as a central strand in Swedish literature and its dissemination to a mass audience in the working class make it problematic to uphold conventional distinctions between popular/working-class and high/bourgeois culture. Finally, I argue that the challenging of these distinctions is not only a key to a better understanding of Lo-Johansson’s novel, but it also shows that Swedish working-class literature can serve as a catalyst for re-theorizations within working-class studies of the relationship between class and taste as something that is historically specific, rather than universal.

    Abstract [sv]

    Kapitlet innehåller två analyser av dikten "De hängde anarkisterna" (1887). Dikten analyseras mot bakgrund av det offentlighetssammanhang i vilket den skapades, nämligen den tidiga arbetarrörelsens kulturella offentlighet. Dessutom analyseras diktens självreflexiva drag mot bakgrund av textens hemhörighet i den arbetarlitterära traditionen.

    Diversity and Homogeneity in a “Multicultural Society”: A Critique of the Pervasive Picture of Collective Identities2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I argue that the hegemonic Swedish discourse about the so-called multicultural society is centred on an opposition between a culturally homogenous past and a present, which, because of migration, has become culturally diverse. My aim is to analyze (drawing on Walter Benn Michaels’ and Nancy Fraser’s analyses of the epoch of “posthistoricism” and “the postsocialist condition” respectively) how diversity and homogeneity are conceptualized within this discourse, and to propose an alternative way of understanding these phenomena. My argument is that both societal homogeneity and diversity must be understood from a “transformative” perspective on collective identities. I also want to argue that such a perspective must supersede the deconstructivist approach associated with poststructuralism. As an alternative I propose Toril Moi’s critique of “the pervasive picture” of identities. My main examples will come from literary criticism of popular fiction thematizing the so-called multicultural society, but these examples will be considered metonymic for the hegemonic discourse about multiculturalism.

    Economic inequality, Marxist theory, and Swedish-language working-class literature2020In: Studia Neophilologica, ISSN 0039-3274, E-ISSN 1651-2308, Vol. 92, no 2, p. 222-237Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The conference ‘Is Economic Inequality also a Literary Problem?’ held at Uppsala University, Sweden, in 2017 raised the following questions: What does literature have to do with inequality? Does it contribute to its reproduction, or can it be a force of resistance? Is it fair to even ask of literature and literary studies that they address the problem of economic inequality? This essay claims the answers to these questions are conditioned by the historical contexts of the critics grappling with them and the literatures that they study. Employing an analysis of the theme of poverty in contemporary Swedish-language working-class literature, I argue that the consecration of this literature as an important strand in Swedish national literature has allowed it to express radical critique of the economic inequalities lying at the heart of capitalism. Furthermore, I argue that this insight could be used as a starting-point for challenging some of the more pessimistic views expressed by critics of working-class literature regarding its political potentials.

    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses how the working-class poet Stig Sjödin (1917-1993) thematizes, in his works, his role as a labour-movement poet. This is done though an investigation of his relationship to older agitational labour-movement songs. These songs constituted an important genre within Swedish working-class literature during the decades around the turn-of-the-century 1900. However, they belong to a different era than Sjödin’s poetry, and were shaped by different conditions. Therefore, a comparison can make visible what is historically specific about Sjödin’s oeuvre, especially regarding its (and modern Swedish working-class literature’s) relationship to the labour movement.

    En ny arbetarlitteratur?2016In: "Inte kan jag berätta allas historia?": föreställningar om nordisk arbetarlitteratur / [ed] Beata Agrell, Åsa Arping, Christer Ekholm, Magnus Gustafsson, Institutionen för litteratur, idéhistoria och religion, Göteborgs universitet , 2016, p. 131-151Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this chapter is to problematize and challenge the received understanding of Swedish working-class literature as aesthetically advanced literature within traditional literary genres. This is done by highlighting two phenomena: working-class literature in counter public spheres and working-class comics. The first of these is exemplified primarily by the works of the poet Jenny Wrangborg. At the same time as her poetry is published by a prestigious publisher and is well received by literary critics, she is also active as a poet within the socialist labour movement. The main example of working-class comics is Hanna Petersson’s ”Pigan” [The maid], an autobiographical narrative that displays similarities with both more traditional working-class literature and artworks inspired by this literature. Eventually, the chapter discusses which consequences the inclusion of phenomena such as these in the tradition of working-class literature could have for the academic study of this literature.

    A New Generation – An Innovated Tradition? Strategies of Class Politics in Contemporary Swedish-Language Working-Class Literature The aim of this article is to analyze how the emergence in recent years of a new generation of working-class writers has contributed to the development of the tradition of Swedish working-class literature. First, I investigate these writers’ representations of class and class injustice. Thereafter, I discuss how the attempts by contemporary working-class writers to innovate the tradition of working-class literature, by breaking with the realism usually considered to be its aesthetic backbone, have made it possible to use this tradition as a platform for literary critique of class injustice.

    From "Industrial" to "Colorful"2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I analyze the representation of the Swedish city Malmö, on the local authority's website. The most important theme in this representation is that Malmö, because of economic re-structuring and immigration has become a post-industrial city characterized by a high degree of cultural/ethnic diversity. My analysis aims at mapping how this representation is conditioned by partly contradictory ideological pressures emanating from global, national, and local economic and symbolic processes. Specific attention is given to the representation of time, and to the history-narrative underpinning the idea about Malmö's tranformation into a post-industrial and multicultural city.

    Från statarnas ombudsman till turist i prekariatet?: Om arbetarlitterära representationsmodeller2023In: Samlaren: tidskrift för svensk litteraturvetenskaplig forskning, ISSN 0348-6133, E-ISSN 2002-3871, Vol. 144, p. 58-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to problematize working-class literature’s biographical representation model, that is, the widespread thought model according to which the political potential of working-class literature is dependent on the authors having a strong biographical connection to the working-class collectives they portray. This problematization, which takes its point of departure in an analysis of the reception of two literary works about the so-called precariat — Anders Teglund’s Cykelbudet [The Bicycle Courier] (2021) and Kristian Lundberg’s Yarden [The Yard] (2009) — is both theoretical and historical. Drawing on the Marxist distinction between class in itself and class for itself, the article argues that the so-called precariat has not developed any common way of life or class conciousness that the authors could share. This is thematized in several contemporary literary depictions of precarious working conditions, which can therefore be read as an implicit criticism of working-class literature’s biographical representation model. The article also demonstrates that this model rests on a false picture of the tradition of working-class literature. Older working-class writers have not always had such a strong biographical anchorage in working-class life worlds as critics and literary researchers usually assume (and as the writers themselves have sometimes claimed). On the other hand, they have often, through their participation in the labor movement and its literary life, had an ideological/political connection to this class. Many of the contemporary authors who depict the so-called precariat also have political connections to the collectives they write about, in the form of involvement in organizations that fight against precarious working conditions. Therefore, the article argues that it can be fruitful to focus more on the ideological partisanship of writers portraying workers than on their biographical anchoring in the life worlds of these collectives.
