    Villfarelsens blick: Essäer om resan som kultur1996Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Villfarelsens blick är en annorlunda bok om resan. Den handlar om resenärens "beroendeskap". Är resan eller rapporten från resan resultatet av ett "fritt" skapande subjekt, eller är den ett "ofritt projekt"? Villfarelsens blick är också en bok om makten i världen. Hur ser gestaltningens och återgivningens problematik ut? Blir resan till "resa" först då den avbildats, berättats?

    Villfarelsens blick handlar om resan som kultur. Boken ger historiska perspektiv på migrationen som kulturform, den talar om förflyttningen som en beständig men ofta påtvingad erfarenhet, i dag delad av miljoner människor i en värld där gränserna mellan plats, nation, kultur, territorium, etnicitet, periferi och centrum endast låter sig beskrivas multidimensionellt och dialektiskt. De olika essäerna rör sig över en stor tidsrymd - från medeltid till nutid - och över många territorier och kulturer.

    Villfarelsens blick är skriven av forskare med utsiktspost i ämnen som litteratur, idéhistoria och antropologi, men också av et par skönlitterära resenärer: Folke Isaksson och Pirkko Lindberg. Texterna handlar om resor till femtonhundratalets Ryssland, om resan in i artonhundratalets Finland, om afrikanska resor till "oss", om den svenske botanikern Göran Wahlenbergs resor till Lappland, om finländska Alexandra Gripenbergs resa till Amerika, om Sven Hedins resa till Takla Makan, om överrabbinen Marcus Ehrenpreis resa i öst, om Andrée-expeditionen, om Robinson Crusoe och om resan in i en postkolonial tillvaro.

    Villfarelsens blick handlar egentligen om allas vår resa. Till och från.

    Abstract [en]

    This substantial expansion and reworking of the classic Encyclopedia of Africa South of the Sahara (1997) covers the entire continent, from the Europe-facing shores of the Mediterranean to the commercial bustle of Cape Town. The set addresses the entire history of African cultures from the pharaohs and the ancient civilizations of the south through the colonial era to the emergence of 53 independent countries, some of them, like Nigeria, newly emergent in world commerce and others deep in conflict (Sudan, Liberia, Congo). The NEA treats today's African peoples not as the obscure "other" of a "Dark Continent" but as actors on a world stage where issues of global development, the AIDS crisis, and international terrorism play out across a map of indigenous cultures functioning beneath an imperfect European overlay of "national states." Articles in anthropology, geography, history, and cultural studies by an international team of more than 600 distinguished Africanists (including over 150 from Africa and the African Diaspora) present Africa – as seen by Africans themselves.

    Sensuality and Power in Visual Culture2006Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present collection of essays sits in a broad "cultural studies" cum "visual studies" field of topical interest connecting the visual with a whole range of disciplines: art history, literary and historical analysis, aesthetic criticism, post-colonialism, media studies, gender studies, psychology, sociology - in their complex offerings and dressings. Image-making and its consumption are interrelated physical or sensuous acts that engage the total reservoir of our faculties. In this performative there is no ocularcentrism, this book claims; sight occupies no hegemony over the other senses. Touching, seeing, viewing, listening collaborate; the hand/eye of the "producer" and the eye/ear to the "viewer" co-operate and collapse into a moment of mutuality that lacks closure. The book points out visuality's co-operative, sensory and reconciling function in the everyday routines and the aesthetical manifestations of seeing, speaking, writing, and acting. It is also concerned with the socio-historical and colonial realm of visual experiences, from discussions of the power relations in portrait making (ingress, Madame de Senonnes), photography (Strömholm's photos of transsexuals), fashion companies (Sisley) to colonial iconography in South African autobiographies. The book should be useful for both students of visuality in culture formation as well as general readers interested in this new terrain of the multiperspective.

    Watching women, falling women: Power and dialogue in three novels by Margaret Atwood2003Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

     

    This study examines the three novels

    Cat s Eye, The Robber Bride, and Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. It focuses on the female characters and their relationships to each other: Their friendships are formed in a patriarchally structured environment and are therefore arenas for defending and controlling the norms of such a structure. The women continually watch each other and themselves, and through the power exercise of watching, femininity is constructed. Atwood describes acts of dialogic storytelling as a means to find options to gendered behavior.

    Defining moments: a cultural biography of Jane Eyre2004Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the ways in which various practices, such as novel-writing, publishing, book-reviewing, reading for pleasure, adaptation and studying English literature, have produced Jane Eyre’s complex cultural profile. The organizing principle of the study is Paul du Gay, Stuart Hall et al’s ‘circuit of culture’, which identifies five key processes or ‘moments’ as being productive of the meanings that a cultural artefact or text comes to possess. Explaining the meanings which have been attached to Jane Eyre partly involves trying to understand why it has been perceived and described dichotomously. For example, it has been thought of as trivial and serious, radical and conservative, feminine and unfeminine. The investigation begins with the writing process, exploring how and why Charlotte Brontë embedded the text with specific hybrid features. The study then traces how these textual features have acquired meaning in different discourses, focusing primarily on the novel’s reception in Britain in the mid-nineteenth century and in the 1990s. The thesis points to the role played by distinct target-audiences in configurations of Jane Eyre; Charlotte Brontë, publishers, biographers, literary critics, film-makers and teachers have all had specific audiences in mind when they have described, evaluated, regulated and/or creatively reworked the novel, its author’s life and/or the culture in which the author lived. During the course of the twentieth century, Jane Eyre became increasingly thought of as a legitimate object of study at all levels of the education system. The thesis examines how the text has been studied, and contributes to ongoing debates about National Curriculum English by offering ways of allowing more creativity into the classroom.

    Bayard Taylor and the Genders of the North2006In: Edda: Nordisk tidskrift for litteraturforskning, ISSN 9 770013 08 1037, no 1, p. 18-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In nineteenth-century travelogues, representations of nature as feminine commonly serve to underscore constructions of masculinity as dominant, controlled and rational. Feminine language is more readily utilised to describe southern than northern spaces, however. Thus, southern landscapes are quite often seen as picturesque and coded as feminine, whereas northern landscapes are frequently described as awe-inspiring and sublime and given masculine properties. To some extent, the American travel writer Bayard Taylor’s Northern Travel: Summer and Winter Pictures of Sweden, Lapland and Norway (1858) conforms to a model which genders the land feminine and the traveller masculine. But a factor that seems to influence how a region is discursively gendered is to what degree the writer is presented as separated from or integrated with the environment. To some extent, Taylor’s representation of the North as a physically demanding region where the traveller is vulnerable works to undermine the conventionally masculine position of much nineteenth-century travel writing. As a result, the narrative vacillates between reinforcing and undermining essentialist gender polarities, highlighting the problem of gendering physical space.
