Minorities and migrants: transforming Swedish literary fields

2016 (English)In: The novel and Europe: imagining the continent in post-1945 fiction / [ed] Andrew Hammond, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016, 1, p. 211-226Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

European fiction is being increasingly influenced by postcolonialism, globalisation and transnationalism. Methodological nationalism based on the idea that a nation-state is a container, the contents of which need to be protected, has come under critical scrutiny by cultural mobilisers from regions seen as peripheral during the era of modern European nation-building. One novel that exemplifies the literary response to marginalisation is Populärmusik från Vittula (Popular Music, 2000) by the Swedish-Tornedalian writer Mikael Niemi. Set in the historical homeland of the Tornedalians in the northern borderlands between Sweden and Finland, the novel addresses the concerns—poverty, alienation, assimilation and the internalisation of majority discourse—which are more typically associated with postcolonial writing from the (former) European colonies.
