    Den fornsvenska handskriftens bilinguala karaktär: Latinets funktion i folkspråklig kontext2005In: Fackspråk och översättningsteori: VAKKI-symposium XXV, 2005, p. 10-30Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    This article deals with the bilingual nature of the Old Swedish manuscripts. A quick survey shows that the Swedish manuscript sources from the Middle Ages not easily can be divided into a Latin and a vernacular part. Of course there are manuscripts written entirely in Latin, and manuscripts written entirely in Swedish, but many miscellaneous manuscripts contain texts both in Swedish and Latin. Even in Latin manuscripts we can find Swedish words and phrases incorporated with the Latin texts, and even more common are Latin words and phrases incorporated with the Swedish texts. The article gives a sketch describing the mix between the two languages on both manuscript and textual level, and the article tries to interpret this fact from a social point of view. The scriptorium was in the Middle Ages bilingual. The writers could choose to use the learned language, Latin, or the language of the lay people, the verna-cular. The choice of language was made deliberately, depending on for example, the content of the text, the presumed audience of the text, the patron of the text etc. But even when the writers had made their choice, the bilingualism of the society revealed itself, maybe deliberately, for example to emphasize something ideological, maybe just as a slip of the pen.

    Handskriften som historiskt vittne: Fornsvenska samlingshandskrifter - miljö och funktion2002Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    This book is about the Swedish manuscript culture in the Middle Ages. The primary aim is to discuss how different types of manuscripts written in the vernacular were used in the Swedish Middle Ages. A secondary aim is to discuss different methods of analysis for the interpretation of a manuscript culture.

    Twenty miscellaneous manuscripts are analyzed from a New Philological point of view. The analyses deal with both the understanding of the content as a whole in a medieval manuscript, and the interpretation of the codicology. The analyses show that the aim and functions of manuscripts can be traced by a close reading of formal texts as rubrics, introductions and conclusions. They also show that the layout of a manuscript is related to its use. For instance, layout and certain formula words can tell us whether the manuscripts is intended for silent reading or for a listening audience.

    The importance of analysing a manuscript as a whole is stressed throughout the book. This is the only way we can learn to understand the role of individual manuscripts in the Middle Ages. The book also points to the need for editions of whole manuscripts in the future. Without these we may never understand why a given manuscript was written.

    The Image of Virgin Mary in Words and Art: Praising the Mother of God in Fifteenth-Century Sweden2013In: Viator: Medieval and Renaissance Studies, ISSN 0083-5897, E-ISSN 2031-0234, Vol. 44, no 2, p. 283-310Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the fifteenth century, the cult of Virgin Mary was at its peak in Sweden, as well as all over the Western world. This article discusses the manifestation of the learned cult within Swedish popular culture in this period by analyzing contemporary prayers and art works from Swedish parish churches. The texts and the visual arts are discussed with reference to Speculum Virginum (5th chap.), an important didactic work that was translated from Latin to Old Swedish during the second half of the fifteenth century. It is clear that the arguments found in the popular cult of Virgin Mary are much simpler and more dogmatic, than in the learned cult. Nevertheless themes from the learned cult are frequently used in vernacular prayers and in the visual arts, especially as seen in the praise of Virgin Mary as intercessor. Probably this had something to do with St. Birgitta of Sweden and her revelations that made a strong impact on Swedish late medieval church life.

    Vadstenasystrarnas textvärld: studier i systrarnas skriftbrukskompetens, lärdom och textförståelse2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The literacy and learning that can be attributed to the female convent at Vadstena Abbey have not been yet thoroughly investigated, a lacuna this book aims to remedy. Through an analysis of the social community and a close reading of the texts transmitted by Cod. Holm. A 3, a significant manuscript used in the convent for table reading, this study dis¬cusses the textual world that structured the nuns’ life at Vadstena Abbey and thus attempts for the first time to take seriously the learning of the nuns of Vadstena.

    The first part of the book deals with the literacy events that were significant for the female convent, then turns to the literacy competences that can be found among the nuns of Vadstena Abbey, and finally describes the form of education the sisters could receive. The convent was literate, in both a professional and a pragmatic perspective. Many nuns were able to read and write in vernacular, some also in Latin. If only occasional examples of literate women at the convent are known before 1450, it appears that the literacy competence then increased signific¬antly, a situation which suggests that the nuns may have learned to read and eventually to write in the monastery under the supervision of a mentor.

    The learning of the nuns was marked by the mystical movement of the second half of the 15th century. This can be shown by an analysis not only of the works the sisters read but also of the textual structure of the monastic readings at the female convent. The auctoritates quoted in these texts taught the nuns in exegetical questions and ideological issues im¬portant for the Birgittines. Knowledge of the monastic virtues was of considerable importance in this education, especially humility which was explored in nearly all texts read in the convent.

    The second part of the book offers a close reading of a table reading manuscript which was produced in the beginning of the 16th century. This manuscript proved to be very important for the nunnery’s intellectual context as the daily read¬ings during the meals were an opportu¬nity for the monastery to emphasize ideologies and beliefs that the nuns should support. The table readings followed an old ritual as many of the texts that should be read were copied from older manuscripts. But notwithstanding their textual tradition, the texts to be preferred were obviously didactic and intended to educate the nuns. These texts must be seen as a bridge between the beliefs of the collectivity and the nuns’ private worshipping. There is in these texts a meditative tone which concurred to place the concrete daily routines and duties into an abstract Christological frame.

    Wars Herra Pino bok: Vadstenasystrarnas bordsläsningar enligt Cod. Holm. A 32006Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    This book is an edition of Cod. Holm. A 3, a manuscript from Vadstena abbey containing the Birgittine sisters’ official table readings in Old Swedish, i.e., official text to be read aloud during meal time at the sisters’ convent. The manuscript is dated 1502 according to its prologue, and is written by four different hands. The main scribes are known by their names, Katharina Gudhmundi and Anna Girmundi (both were nuns in the abbey). Maybe one of the anonymous hands may be the manuscript’s corrector, Elseby Gjordsdotter. The manuscript was commissioned by the abbess Anna Fickesdotter.

    The manuscript, composed of 156 parchment leaves written on two columnist, contains 98 different texts, complete or partial, of devotion, such as Saint Birgitta’s Revelations, commentaries on the Bible, Old Swedish translations of the well-known mystics Henrik Suso and Mechthild of Hackeborn, Saints lives and the like. Most of the texts are copied from older manuscripts that were owned by the sisters’ convent at Vadstena abbey. The introduction to this edition provides a codicological description of the manuscript together with a presentation of its content.

    The edition itself follows the manuscript as close as possible. To each folio and each line of the manuscript corresponds a page and a line in the edition. In addition the medieval interpunctuation is edited and the text is not normalised.

    The text is completed by a critical apparatus which supplies the following information: scribal mistakes, identification of the citations of the Bible and the auctoritates, detailed codicological information, variant readings from other manuscripts containing the same texts as Cod. Holm. A 3.

    Intentionen med ämnet svenska som andraspråk: En kvalitativ intervjustudie med undervisande gymnasielärare om gymnasieämnet svenska som andraspråk.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenska som andraspråk är alltid omdebatterat men finns just nu som ett eget ämne med egen kursplan på ungdomsgymnasiet. Den här studien undersöker hur fem undervisande lärare i gymnasieämnet svenska som andraspråk ser på ämnet; vilka för-och nackdelar som finns, hur det organiseras på olika skolor samt hur behovet av SVA ämnet ser ut och hur lärarna tror att framtiden kommer att se ut. Metoden som valts för att genomföra studien är semi-strukturerade kvalitativa intervjuer med fem undervisande lärare på olika gymnasieskolor och i olika kommuner i norra Sverige. Fördelar som lärarna lyfte fram med att ha två separata svenskämnen är mindre elevgrupper, lägre tempo och ett material anpassat till eleverna. Nackdelar som framkom var en syn på ämnet som något med lägre status än SVE, för få engagerade kollegor och för lite utbildning/fortbildning av pedagoger i skolan. Alla deltagare i studien pratade enbart ur ett elevperspektiv när de diskuterade nödvändigheten av att ha SVA som eget ämne. De ansåg att det i dagsläget finns ett behov av att ha kurserna separerade, men några deltagare ansåg att organiseringen av hur detta ska lösas borde ses över. I framtiden tror lärarna att ämnet kommer att se ut ungefär som det gör för tillfället men att det kommer ske små förbättringar i och med ett förmodat ökat elevantal under de kommande åren.

    "A Mere Dream Dreamed in a Bad Time": A Marxist Reading of Utopian and Dystopian Elements in Ursula K. Le Guin's Always Coming Home2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In Ursula K. Le Guin’s novel Always Coming Home, utopian and dystopian elements interact according to patterns inspired by anarchism and Taoism to criticise material excesses and oppressive social structures under capitalism. Via discussions of gender, state power, and forms of social (re)production, this Marxist reading proposes that the novel’s separation of utopia from dystopia hinges on the absence or presence of a state. The reading also suggests that the novel’s utopia is by its own admission a “mere dream” with limited relevance to anti-capitalist politics, and employs the novel’s own term “handmind” to show that the aesthetic and philosophical dimensions of its anti-capitalist sentiments encourage a reconsideration of utopia, to be viewed not as a fixed future product – a good-place – but as a constant process of becoming – a no-place.

    Beneath the Surface: An Examination of Masculinity and Femininity in Dennis Lehane's Mystic River2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    On the surface, Dennis Lehane’s novel Mystic River appears quite fascinated and occupied with macho ideals and ideas of heroism, vengeance, vigilantism, violence, and blind loyalty. The novel might even be said to paint a picture of a world ultimately ruled and controlled by men, who are expected to set the terms and encouraged to take charge. This points to an overt message stating that attributes such as strength, cold practicality, efficiency, action, decisiveness, and rationality – all stereo-typically masculine values – ultimately pay off and are rewarded. However, such an initial analysis may be meaningfully countered, overturned, and distrusted. Making use of feminist deconstruction, this essay argues that Mystic River’s superficial praise of stereotypical gender ideals is in fact undermined by tensions and contradictions beneath the surface of the text. This undermining in turn serves to criticize binary hierarchies at the very core of patriarchal ideology.

    Kraften att älska, makten att tjäna: religion, emancipation och den kvinnliga skapande kraften i Jeanna Oterdahls sagor 1908–19272017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation studies the Swedish author Jeanna Oterdahl (1879–1965), and the fairy tales and stories she wrote in the period 1908–1927. Oterdahl was a well-known Christian public intellectual in her day. Besides being an author, she worked as a teacher and a lecturer, and was importantly involved in a number of organizations for societal development, such as the Association of the Christian Social Life [Förbundet för kristet samhällsliv] and the Settlement Movement [Hemgårdsrörelsen].

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the religious elements in her fairy tales and stories, and to study how these elements relate to the ideology of the early Swedish women’s emancipation movement. This movement rejected the conservative Christian faith of the Lutheran State Church, and aligned itself with the liberal form of Christianity that, to a greater extent, recognized the equality of men and women before God.

    Part I deals with the Christian message of love and its relation to emancipatory elements in Otherdahl’s stories. The point of departure for the analysis is Bremer’s interpretation of the Virgin Mary’s response to God’s calling, "Behold, the Lord’s servant" [Se, Herrens tjänarinna] and its emancipatory meaning. The women of Oterdahl’s stories take the role of servants of the Lord – not Lords [Herrens tjänarinna, inte herrarnas]

    Part II studies the female characters’ quest for their true (female) selves and their true home where alienation between the sexes will cease to exist and a spiritual kinship can take its place. This true home need not necessarily be a physical place; it can be in the form of an idea or a faith in something higher – such as God – where the self can live and reach its full personal potential. Part II analyzes Oterdahl’s understanding of the female characters’ quest against the background of Emilia Fogelklou’s interpretation of the role of Eve in the Genesis creation narrative (presented in her work “Two fairy tales” [Två sagor]), and against the background of one of Oterdahl’s own lectures, “How We Create a Home” [Hur vi skapa ett hem].

    The study ends with a discussion of how the concepts of freedom and power figure in Oterdahl’s stories. “Freedom” in Oterdahl’s stories is not a pursuit of power, but has to do with the use of one’s special gifts and with service to others. Freedom, in other words, means to take on responsibilities not only in the private home, but also in the community. Fogelklou describes this as a “human cause” [människosak] – something for women and men to strive for together.

    By examining how the Christian message of love is expressed through the emancipatory efforts of the female protagonists in Oterdahl’s stories, the dissertation highlights a new dimension in her work, and puts in question the common description of her stories as reactionary. Reinterpreted against the background of the Christian concept of calling/vocation and the ideology of the early emancipationist movement, the seemingly reactionary stories can be understood as emphasizing the importance of women in a changing society.

    Treacherous Words: How Climate Change Conspiracy Sceptics use Conceptual Metaphors to Extinguish our Future2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examined the metaphors used in contemporary American conservative discourse between October 2018 and March 2019, focusing on material published by conservative think tanks (CTTs) and tweets made by Republican senators in relation to climate change. For the CTTs, a domain-specific corpus (36,388 words) was compiled and a smaller corpus (3967 words) was assembled based on 135 tweets. These datasets showed that conspiracy scepticism was the most common type of scepticism used to discredit climate change data, scientists and environmental policies. In addition, the datasets indicate that conservative agents frequently used metaphors of WAR, RELIGION, HEALTH, BUILDING, JOURNEY, WATER and PRODUCT to convey negative frames. These domains linked to the conceptual key LIFE IS A STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL and were presented in a moral context. In response to these findings it is suggested that the scientific community incorporate emotional language, metaphors and moral values when communicating environmental issues.

    Revoicing Sámi narratives: north Sámi storytelling at the turn of the 20th century2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Revoicing Sámi narratives investigates the relationship between storytellers, contexts and collective tradition, based on an analysis of North Sámi narratives published in the early 1900s. This dissertation “revoices” narratives by highlighting the coexistence of different voices or socio-ideological languages in repertoires and by considering Sámi narratives as utterances by storytellers rather than autonomous products of tradition. Thus, this study serves as an act of “revoicing,” of recovering voices that had been silenced by the scientific discourse which enveloped their passage into print.

    Narrators considered “tradition bearers” were interviewed or wrote down folk narratives that were interpreted as representative of a static, dying culture. The approach chosen in this thesis highlights the dynamic and conscious choices of narrative strategies made by these storytellers and the implications of the discourses expressed in narration. By taking into account the intense context of social change going on in Sápmi at the time the narratives emerged, as well as the context that includes narrators, ethnographers and tradition, the analysis demonstrates that storytelling is an elaboration that takes place in negotiation with tradition, genres and individual preferences.

    The repertoires of four storytellers are studied according to a methodological framework consisting in critical discourse analysis from a folkloristic perspective. The analysis underscores the polyphony of the narratives by Johan Turi, who related with skillfulness of tradition by taking position as a conscious social actor. This study also investigates the repertoires of storytellers Ellen Utsi, Per Bær and Isak Eira who were interviewed by the

    Norwegian “lappologist” Just K. Qvigstad. Their contributions to his extensive collection of Sámi narratives express their relation to tradition and to the heteroglossia that surrounded them. Based on a receptionalist approach, this dissertation investigates the implications of these narratives for the North Sámi community at the turn of the twentieth century.

    Storytelling appears to have had a set of functions for community members, from the normative as regards socialization, information and warning against dangers to the defensive with the elaboration of a discourse about solidarity, identity and empowerment.

    Domesticicty, Identity and Mental Illness in Jane Eyre and Rebecca from a feminist perspective2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative essay explores and compares women’s roles and identities in the gothic novels Rebecca and Jane Eyre. The investigation shall be a social critique on feminine ideals from a feminist perspective. Comparable analysis of the "other women" who act as doubles for the protagonists will be essential to understanding the alter egos of Mrs. de Winter and Jane Eyre. These double personalities raise questions of identity and the roles of femininity. Similarly the power struggles between husband and wives and other feminine influences shall throw further light on prevailing feminine ideals of the times. I shall analyze Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca in relation to the concepts of the "Angel in the house" and the "Mad Woman in the Attic" with Charlotte Bronte’s novel to explore parallels between the plot and female characters. I shall show how Daphne du Maurier offers varying feminine models and ultimately takes a feminist standpoint with her novel much like Brontë’s Jane Eyre before her. Finally, I will show how the suppression of women by men through gender stereotyping can lead to female rebellion and, in turn, the stigmatization of female madness.

    Tal om terror: säkerhetspolitisk retorik i Sverige och Ryssland hösten 20012008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Aiming to facilitate the description and evaluation of rhetorical responses to security issues, a framework was developed for comparative analysis of oral and written presentations. The framework was applied on three speeches held by the Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson and three speeches by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin in the wake of the terrorist attacks on World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11 and the subsequent military operation in Afghanistan.

    The framework was based on four narrative structures, referred to as images. The image of aggression was used to describe the speaker’s interpretation of a dramatic event, the image of threat to describe his consideration of the security threat and the image of securitisation to analyse solutions suggested in relation to the threat. The image of communication, finally, was used to describe relations between the speaker and his audience appearing in the speeches. Each image included an actor, an act or event, a referent object to the act and time and space. The images were analysed as discrete parts and also by an integrating approach. In the analysis, descriptions of the images were related to rhetorical tools, including logos, pathos, ethos, identification, vividness and agency.

    The analyses revealed similarities and dissimilarities between the two speakers. As for similarities, Persson and Putin used similar topoi. Persson used democracy – terrorism whereas Putin preferred civilisation – terrorism/barbarism, and both used cooperation. To both speakers, the images of aggression and threat tended to appeal to pathos and identification, and the image of securitisation and communication to logos and ethos. As for dissimilarities, Persson relied on the UN whereas Putin offered direct help to the US operation. In Persson’s speeches, the predominant topos was cooperation, in Putin’s civilisation – terrorism/barbarism. Persson focused on democratic values, Putin on the fight against terrorism. Persson’s images were more elaborated and vivid, Putin’s more moderate. These dissimilarities were tentatively explained by the two speakers’ different individual styles and domestic situations and, most important, by the speakers’ different agency on the international arena.

    In essence, the present framework, based on four discrete images, was found to be well-suited for cross-cultural analysis of rhetorical responses to security issues. The similarities exceeded the dissimilarities, which led to the conclusion that rhetoric of security politics may be defined as a discrete rhetorical genre. A bi-polar world view pervaded the rhetoric, preventing long-term solutions to security issues. Instead a focus on cooperation topoi, nuanced information, and the means and ends of securitisation was suggested.
