    Barakāt, Salīm سليم بركات(1951 -)2016In: Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism / [ed] Stephen Ross, Routledge, 2016Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Salīm Barakāt is one of the most prolific modern Arab writers. He published his first poetry collection in 1973 and has since produced several more in addition to novels, essays, and autobiographical works. Despite living outside the Arab world since 1982, Barakāt’s literary output is closely connected to his Kurdish roots, and the culture and traditions of his birthplace in northern Syria. Barakāt’s inventive language, original narrative style and fantastical plots have placed him in the forefront of Arab literary modernism. His unconventional technique and mixture of styles and genres have at times made critics unable to describe his work in common literary terms, which in turn has given him the reputation of a renovator of the Arabic novel.

    Creating a Man, a Mouse or a Monster? : Masculinityas Formulated by Syrian Female Novelists through the Second Half of the 20thCentury.2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This literary study examines the formulation of masculinity in Syrian novels authored by women. The thesis covers the period between 1959 and 2000, corresponding to both the development of the female-authored novel in Syria and the creation of the modern Syrian state. This research engages with studies of masculinity in general and literary masculinity studies in particular. Drawing on the seminal work of Raewyn Connell as well as engaging with studies on masculinity and feminine narratology in Swedish, English and Arabic, the thesis analyses the formulation of  literary masculinity through the fictional societies’ ideal masculinity on the one hand, and the female characters’ views and reactions to masculinity on the other. From a general survey of the field, 34 novels undertaking the formulation of gendered relations were identified and chosen for this study.  From this selection, five themes emerged, forming the foundation of this thesis’ main chapters.

    The five themes explore, in turn, how stereotypes are utilised to critique gender roles, ways in which male and female characters collaborate to formulate gender norms, how female characters capitalise on patriarchy in order to enhance their lives, male characters as symbols for social and political change and finally, the difficulties included in the performance of masculinity. Each theme is exemplified through one novel, which is analysed in detail. Throughout the five chapters, the main novel chosen for analysis is put into conversation with other novels with similar themes but from different decades. This allows for an examination of changing ideals of masculinity in addition to the theme itself.

    The first theme, how stereotypes are utilised to critique gender roles, is studied through a close reading of al-Ẓahr al-‘ārī (The Naked back) by Hanrīyit ‘Abbūdī. The analysis illustrates how the expected normative behaviour of men and women is utilised in order to comment on the formulation of gender roles. The chapter further demonstrates ways in which what is seen as gender specific behaviour can be appropriated by the opposite gender. This is further developed through the examination of female writers taking over the male voice through a first person male narrator. The second theme, ways in which male and female characters collaborate to formulate gender norms, is discussed through a close reading of the novel Khaṭawāt fī al-ḍabāb (Steps in the fog) by Malāḥa al-Khānī. This chapter illustrates the similar expectations that both male and female characters have on their sons and fellow male characters.  This includes taking on the role of provider and protector, even in the cases where the female characters are able to look after themselves.

    The third theme, how female characters capitalise on patriarchy in order to enhance their lives, is elaborated through a close reading of Ayyām ma‘ahu (Days with him) by Kūlīt Khūrī. This theme demonstrates how the female character constructs herself and her world around the idea of a perfect male, whom she thinks will save her. The analysis examines what is seen as ideal traits in a man. It further discusses the change of the female character and how her initial utilisation of patriarchal structure transforms into a critique of the same structure.

    The fourth theme, male characters as symbols for social and political change, is seen through a close reading of Dimashq yā basmat al-ḥuzn (Damascus, o smile of sadness) by Ulfat al-Idlibī. The chapter connects between changing social ideals and ideal masculinity. Through Bayrūt 75 (Beirut 75) by Ghāda al-Sammān, the fifth theme, the difficulties included in the performance of masculinity, is studied. The problematic masculinity presented is then put in contrast with what appears to be a suggestion that a performance of femininity could be an alternative to unsuccessful masculinity.

    Whereas the novels differ in their presentation of masculinity and the utilisation of ideal masculinity, they agree on a set of core traits summarised in a hegemonic ideal of masculinity as an ability to provide and protect. The ways in which this should be performed is however closely connected to the female characters’ ideas of emancipation and women’s rights. The female writers’ formulation of masculinity can hence be said to mirror the development of the female characters and their awareness of women’s rights.  

    The thesis hopes that its original contribution to knowledge is the identification and examination of constructed masculinities in Syrian female-authored fiction. Moreover, this thesis studies a body of Syrian fiction previously largely unstudied in Western academia, and in a framework of Swedish, English and Arabic secondary sources.

    Ikhlāṣī, Walīd (1935-)2016In: Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism / [ed] Stephen Ross, Routledge, 2016Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Walīd Ikhlāṣī has become known as one of Syria’s most productive dramatists and novelists. Since his first short story collection in 1963 he has produced over 50 pieces of work including novels, plays and short story collections. A well-known modernist and surrealist writer, he has introduced his own distinctive style in his writing for the theatre and in his fiction. He has also been involved in work with the Arab Writer’s Union and in the editorial committees of several Syrian literary magazines, and influenced the cultural scene in Syria and the Arab world. Among Ikhlāṣī’s many plays al-irā (The Path) is often brought out as an example of his seemingly action-less plays which on closer examination are filled with sharp criticism of the social and political Syrian landscape. His short story collection, ma adatha li-‘Antara? (What Happened to Antara?), shows his engagement with Arabic cultural heritage and the use of historical references in his work.

    Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed: En litteraturstudie om hur arbete med sång, rim och ramsor kan främja barns utveckling av engelska som främmande språk i grundskolans tidigare år.2015Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med litteraturstudien är att undersöka hur arbete med sång, rim och ramsor kan främja

    yngre elevers språkutveckling i engelska som främmande språk. Detta görs genom att fokusera på

    främjandet av barns språkinlärning, hur lärare bör arbeta med sång, rim och ramsor inom

    engelska som främmande språk, samt lärares attityder till ett sådant arbetssätt.

    Arbetet genomfördes som en systematisk litteraturstudie innehållande en bakgrund med

    relevant teori, samt analys av fem vetenskapliga studier rörande ämnet. Dessa gav möjlighet till en

    bred bild av området, då länder och perspektiv varierade. Studierna valdes ut genom sökning i

    databaser efter relevans och tillförlitlighet.

    I studiernas resultat framgick att majoriteten av tillfrågade lärare och elever var positivt

    inställda till arbete med sång och ramsor i engelskundervisning, och den språkutveckling dessa

    metoder innebar. Genom arbete med läraren som förebild motiverades eleverna. Dock fanns en

    avsaknad av material och kunskap för att kunna genomföra och bedöma undervisning

    innehållande sång och ramsor. En avsaknad av rim i de studier som analyserats berörs även i

    studien, likaså en brist på svenska studier.

    Sammanfattningsvis verkar sång och ramsor enligt de granskade studierna ha ett värde i

    engelskundervisning. Dock finns det behov av mer forskning och kunskap för att få starkare

    underlag för användning av dessa metoder i undervisning.

    Familiar myths: the treatment of terrorism in Don DeLillo’s Falling Man2010In: Symposium Representations of American Family, Uppsala, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The family – understood not merely as a social unit but also as a western institution – holds a privileged position in recent American fiction treating the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In many of these works, the family, and in particular the conjugal family with children at the forefront as icons of innocence and vulnerability, functions as an allegorical site for fictionalising local and global conflicts. It serves as a symbolical image onto which are projected anxieties about national security, the future welfare of the citizen and of the state. A noteworthy, if seldom recognised, element in the treatment of the family in these novels is the centrality of the relationship between the middle-aged child and the aged parent. This familial tie is particularly significant since it articulates the psychological and cultural effects of September 11. In particular, it is the figure of the ageing and demented parent, the paper argues, that embodies the thematised sense of confusion, insecurity, and fear and it is in relation to this figure that the characters manage the shock of the attacks. Focusing on Don DeLillo’s Falling Man (2007), and drawing on recent research within family and childhood studies, the paper aims to show that the aged parents’ mental and physical degeneration becomes a prism through which not merely discourses on terrorism are examined, but also American self-perception.

    Mångfald bortom identifikationer: studentpopulationens diversifiering och vetenskapens arbetssätt2015In: Högre Utbildning, ISSN 2000-7558, E-ISSN 2000-7558, Vol. 5, no 3, 175-187 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste två decennierna och som svar på politiska beslut om bland annat breddad studentrekrytering och en tydligare skrivning av högskolans etiska värdegrund har mångfald i högskolepedagogiska sammanhang identifierats som en fråga om identitet, makt och tillgänglighet. I en kritisk överläggning av studentmångfaldens behandling påtalar artikeln ett bristande beaktande av mångfaldsrekryteringens konsekvenser i förhållande till den högre utbildningens vetenskapliga grund. Överläggningen görs mot bakgrund av en studie utförd vid Högskolan Dalarna, vilken exemplifierar pedagogiska utmaningar kopplade till den ökade studentmobiliteten på avancerad nivå. I fokus står studenters tidigare träning i vetenskapsprocesser och vad deras varierade förkunskaper innebär vid mötet med den existenta magisterutbildningen. I artikeln positioneras relationen mellan mångfald och utbildningen i vetenskapliga arbetssätt som mittpunkten för högskolepedagogiska diskussioner om mångfaldsrekryteringens innebörder.

    Satirical Frame of Mind: Ken Kalfus’s A Disorder Peculiar to the Country and the Literary Engagement with 9/112017In: European Journal of American Studies, ISSN 1991-9336, E-ISSN 1991-9336, Vol. 12, no 2, 1-17 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Prompted by debates on the role of comedy in the USA after 9/11, the essay explores the use of satire as one important narrative strategy that emerged in the subgenre of the American 9/11 novel. Criticism of 9/11 fiction tends to regard literary satire as a device used to counter governing descriptions of twenty-first century terrorism. By way of Ken Kalfus’s A Disorder Peculiar to the Country (2006), I show how literary satire on 9/11 is neither straightforward nor merely a means of political attack. Drawing on recent satire theory that views the satirical mode as unruly, various, and open-ended, I suggest that a closer look to the mixed intentions of this novel presents an opportunity to explore the dynamic between denunciation and comic relief in literary satire on 9/11 and opens the way for a more complex understanding of the operation and affordances of literary 9/11 satire.

Cependant, il permet de mettre en évidence, voire en parallèles les actions essentielles de deux femmes de générations différentes.

    Avec une même sensibilité et une pugnacité sans faille malgré les difficultés et  critiques rencontrées, elles ont permis à l’ensemble des hommes et surtout des femmes de prendre conscience des inégalités à combattre pour un meilleur « vivre ensemble ».

    Transcultural Identities in Contemporary Literature2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent decades, globalization has led to increased mobility and interconnectedness. For a growing number of people, contemporary life entails new local and transnational interdependencies which transform individual and collective allegiances. Contemporary literature often reflects these changes through its exploration of migrant experiences and transcultural identities. Calling into question traditional definitions of culture, many recent works of poetry and prose fiction go beyond the spatial boundaries of a given state, emphasizing instead the mixing and collision of languages, cultures, and identities. In doing so, they also challenge recent and contemporary discourses about cultural identities, fostering a more nuanced understanding of the complexities of identity-formation processes in diverse transcultural frameworks.This volume analyses how traditional understandings of culture, as well as literary representations of identity constructs, can be reconceptualized from a transcultural perspective. In four thematic sections focusing on migration, cosmopolitanism, multiculturalism, and literary translingualism, the twelve essays included in this volume explore various facets of transculturality in contemporary poetry and fiction from around the world.

    Urban and Rural Landscapes in Modern Ireland: Language, Literature and Culture2012Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The central theme of landscape has long been associated with the construction and expression of Irish national identity, particularly in relation to rural Ireland, which traditionally has been regarded as an important source of national heritage and culture. Associated with this preoccupation is the rural/urban divide that has characterised traditional representations of Ireland, especially since the end of the nineteenth century. The twentieth century saw dramatic changes to both rural and urban Ireland. The Celtic Tiger economy and the post-Tiger context have also seen momentous transformations in the Irish landscape. This book analyses the relationship between the rural and the urban and explores the way it is reflected in Irish literature, culture and language from the turn of the twentieth century to the present day. Among others, the work of John Hewitt, Liam O'Flaherty, Moya Cannon, Paula Meehan, Thomas Kinsella and Eavan Boland is analysed, through a variety of perspectives including cultural studies, linguistics, literary studies and ecocriticism.

    Nordic Hub: Virtual Mobility and the Development of Minority Cultures and Languages in Europe2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper will explore two areas: the promotion of Ulster-Scots, particularly in northern Europe, as a minority language and culture; and the opportunities for Dalarna University to support virtual mobility and foster a sustainable research network.

    The Dalarna Centre for Irish Studies (DUCIS) is well established in the Nordic countries, has strong links with existing networks, such as the Nordic Irish Studies Network and the Nordic Association of English Studies, and produces the Nordic Irish Studies journal in-house; all of which could help to facilitate the development of Ulster-Scots studies in northern Europe and beyond.

    Dalarna University is also a leading institution for online learning, and has a new research profile in Intercultural Studies. The existing online learning platforms that we can offer could be used to cultivate and support collegiality, research opportunities and educational resources. As well as providing an online meeting space for the network (with technical support), our online learning environment is currently used to teach 11 languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian; and thus this paper will suggest that there are possibilities for the development of educational resources, specifically through the development of online co-taught courses in minority cultures and languages in Europe.

    “The Athens of the Land”: Autonomous colonial authority among Ulster folk2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the most accomplished literary, scientific and cultural treatises on the Giant’s Causeway and the north coast of Ireland is William Hamilton Drummond’s 1811 epic work, The Giant’s Causeway. A work in which Drummond repeatedly promotes Belfast as a ‘northern Athens’; a civic authority to rival Edinburgh and Dublin. This paper will explore how Drummond uses the classical characteristics of the epic genre and British georgic-based verse to enhance the poem’s declamatory and authoritative voice, as a means to construct and perform a new vision of Ulster’s ascendance within post-rebellion / post-Union Ireland. In a letter to the Bishop of Dromore, Thomas Percy, in 1784, William Jessop appears to articulate Irish Ascendancy fears when he states,

    The Ultonians are Scots […] we are genuine Irish […] we look upon Ulster as one grand volcano, ready every moment to shake the earth around it, and pour forth its burning lava. In the south the climate and the people are milder. Potatoes are a cooling diet; oaten bread and whisky are combustibles.

    Drummond’s poem may be read as a riposte of sorts to this indictment, appropriating the languages of ethnicity, agriculture, environment and geology to promote an enlightened Ulster. Drummond champions a Presbyterian-led and mercantile-sponsored coterie of scholars in Belfast, as the erudite guardians of this now quiescent region within Ireland and within the new Union. Yet under this new guise, the activities of the North’s rural cotter-class as they appear in The Giant’s Causeway – mediated by georgic-verse conventions to extol the north of Ireland’s productive energies – seem to become synonymous with a passive and fecund landscape, meaning that at times the poetic persona drifts alarmingly close to a language of autonomous colonial authority. Ultimately this analysis of The Giant’s Causeway using Ulster-Scots Criticism and Ecocriticism will attempt to offer further means of negotiating Irish history and culture during an intense period of change in Ireland.
