    Arabic dystopias in the 21st century: A study on 21st century Arabic dystopian fictionthrough the analysis of four works of Arabic dystopian narrative2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Dystopian fiction as intended in the Western literary tradition is a 20

    th century phenomenon on

    the Arabic literary scene. This relatively new genre has been experiencing an uplift since the

    beginning of the 21

    st century and many works that have been defined dystopias have been

    published and translated into English in the last 10 – 15 years. In order to find out their main

    features, Claeys’s categorization of literary dystopias is applied and a thematic analysis is

    carried out on four Arabic dystopian works of narrative, written by authors from different parts

    of the Arabic world. The analysis shows that 21

    st century Arabic dystopias are political

    dystopias, with totalitarianism as their main variation. Rather than on society, their focus is on

    the individual, and more specifically on personal freedom. The totalitarian constraints are

    mainly caused by religious fundamentalism and bureaucratic procedures. Surveillance and

    control over population are implemented by means of religious precepts and bureaucratic

    constructions, together with, in some instances, control over language and technological

    devices. Political totalitarianism regardless of a specific political ideology is identified as main

    theme. The thesis suggests that a Western-based classification framework is only partially

    suitable for Arabic dystopian fiction of the 21

    st century and that further research, including but

    not limited to a specific classification theory for Arabic dystopian fiction, is necessary to

    properly investigate this new literary trend in Arabic literature.

    Abstract [en]

    ‘Abd al Salām Al-‘Ujaylī was one of the most productive and versatile literary figures in twentieth century Syria. His experiences both as a medical doctor and a politician fed into his fictional output, which is most often characterized as realism. Al-‘Ujaylī is considered one of the earliest writers of fiction in Syria. Among his over forty publications are novels, poetry collections, theatre plays, travelogues, essays and auto-biographies. His preferred genre however remained the short story.

    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.

    Blended Language Learning: A Thematic Overview of the Most Highly Cited Research2018In: Blended Language Learning: International Perspectives on Innovative Practice / [ed] Dr. Agnieszka Palalas, China Central Radio & TV University Press Co. Ltd , 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter sets out to give an introduction to the blended language learning (BLL) research domain through an analysis of the most impactful BLL research as measured by Harzing’s Publish and Perish software. After an initial outline of the field of BLL and its development, the chapter discusses the research methods and approaches applied in the selected articles and demonstrates that a majority of the articles use a descriptive approach and the dominating method is interpretative studies. The chapter then goes on to analyse the themes of the articles and divides them in to six sections: students’ readiness for BLL, teachers’ perceptions of BLL, learner autonomy and self-regulated learning, second language acquisition, technology and BLL design. Finally, we offer future research directions in order to increase the sustainability of BLL, both as the field of practice and the research area. Overall the 41 reviewed studies present a substantial case for the benefits of BLL. However, to ensure the sustainability of BLL design and thus the generalisability of the research findings further BLL designers and researchers need to apply firm theories.
