    "We Are All Homeless Wanderers". Transculturality and Modernism in the Works of Edith Södergran, Elias Canetti, Henry Parland and Marguerite Duras2014In: Planeta Literatur. Journal of Global Literary Studies, ISSN 2392-0696, no 3, p. 27-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the notion of transculturality and applies it to four modernist authors of the 20th century: Edith Södergran, Elias Canetti, Henry Parland and Marguerite Duras. The concept of transculturality is used to reach a better – or at least different – understanding of the selected writers and their respective body of work.

    L'imparfait ou le passé composé?: Une analyse quantitative et qualitative de la production écrite de 10 apprenants au niveau 3 et 4 dans le système scolaire en Suède.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The current piece of research is a study of how second language learners adapt to the distinction between imperfect and perfect in the narrative of past in the French language. The aim of the study is to find out how the learners adopt the grammar despite the difference between their native language and their learning language. The study describes the difference between Swedish and French. The corpus is defined, consisting of ten narratives by ten second language learners on the levels three and four in the Swedish school system. The title was

    Un souvenir de mon enfance. An exercise in the schoolbook is also analysed. The result shows that the students first learn how to use imperfect in sentences containing a state verb. Later the students attempt the aspect of the verb to practise the shift between the past tense and the perfect tense. In conclusion, the shift between perfect and imperfect is a challenge to the Swedish learner. However, it is not an unbridgeable gap.

    La formation des mots nouveaux en français et en suédois: Étude comparative de deux listes de mots nouveaux publiées en 2016 (Nyordslistan et les mots nouveaux du Petit Robert)2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis focuses on contemporary neology in French and Swedish. In our study we compare the two languages, firstly regarding the formation of new words and secondly concerning the fields of activity in which these words are mainly conceived. In the theoretical part of the study, we present, amongst other theories, the neological typology developed by Jean-François Sablayrolles (2016). This typology is then used in the analysis of our corpus, consisting of the 95 new words of the Swedish list Nyordslistan 2016 and the French list

    Les mots nouveaux du Petit Robert édition 2017. As for the word formation processes, the results of our work confirm that linguistic borrowing is the most productive process in both languages. However, the number of English loanwords is lower in the French part of the corpus than in the Swedish part. When it comes to the second most important word formation process, the corpus suggests a difference between the two languages: while the process of derivation represents an important number of cases in French, compounding dominates in Swedish. When it comes to the fields of activity, ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) prove to be the most productive field in both languages.

    La négritude dans Cahier d´un retour au pays natal d´Aimé Césaire2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [fr]

    The objective of this thesis is to study Negritude as literary movement expressed through the words of Aimé Césaire in his poetry Cahier d’un retours au pays natal. The relation between the poetry and historical events as well as the relation between the poetry and the author are examined. The analysis is conducted from the book chosen extracts that are examined in relation to identified characteristics of the negritude movement and the poetic expression. The analysis shows that the poetry of Aimé Césaire expresses fundamental values and attributes found within the negritude movement. The language used in the poetry is aggressive and to some extent contradictory. The "I" and "me" have a central role in the poetry when expressing negritude values and attributes. The revalorisation of the black man and the renaissance of the negritude movement are central themes in the poetry. The author himself is essential for the expression, which is characterised by being subjective rather than objective.

    Le présent et le passé composé: Une étude sur l´accord verbal en production écrite chez des apprenants de français L22018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [fr]

    Avec ce travail nous avons eu pour but d’étudier la maîtrise de l’accord verbal en français langue seconde (en abrégé FL2) chez des apprenants suédophones en production écrite. Dans ce travail nous avons présenté des études faites antérieurement dans ce domaine.

    Nous avons vu que certaines difficultés, telles que la morphologie silencieuse, peuvent poser un problème pour les apprenants et rendent difficile la possibilité d´apprendre rapidement la morphologie des verbes. Nous avons fait une étude sur 13 élèves de la 3ème année de collège. Trois exercices faits par ces élèves ont été analysés : 1) la conjugaison du verbe

    venir au présent, 2) la conjugaison du verbe venir au passé composé et 3) la rédaction d’un récit dans lequel l’élève raconte ce qu’il a fait pendant ses vacances d’été. Les résultats nous ont montré que ces élèves sont au stade 2 post initial de développement du français L2 qui est décrit par Bartning et Schlyter (2004). Nous avons vu que le passé composé est assez productif par les élèves à ce stade et que l´imparfait commence à apparaître sous des formes tels qu’avait et faisait.

    LA POETIQUE DU MIRAGE DANS LE VENTRE DE L´ATLANTIQUE DE FATOU DIOME2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this memoir is to study the work of Fatou Diome,

    The Belly of the Atlantic. Diome sends a message to young Africans: to take responsibility and dignity play an important role in the work. The theme we will deal with is the aesthetics of mirage. She is building a mirage around immigration and we will show what she is doing to get her message across. Our work is composed of two main parts: The construction of the mirage and the destruction of the myth and an intermediate part devoted to the in-between worlds: the Atlantic Ocean that the author personifies by attributing it a belly.

    D’anciens mots français du XVIIe siècle et le parler acadien.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    French has not always been the sophisticated language that we know today. This language, which linguists and grammarians have worked hard to refine centuries after centuries, was not exported everywhere beyond the borders of France. The New France on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean was a witness to that. This Acadian dialect, spoken on the east coast of Canada and considered Old French, sparked our curiosity to study it more closely.That said, our work follows the French language exodus to Acadia and the difficulties encountered in safeguarding it. Thus, we will demonstrate, that in the Acadian Peninsula in New Brunswick, Canada, old words removed from the French dictionary are still used in the Acadians oral language. Our study focus on twenty old words by questioning 150 persons of different generations. The assumption was that the level of education would affect the percentage of use of old words.4As a result of our analysis, we found that even with the increase in education, some words are not ready to disappear from the spoken language. But openness to the world might force Acadians to adapt to a modernized language and abandon the old French words.

    Tu dis et je murmure!: Une analyse des verbes de parole dans la littérature suédoise pour enfants et leurs traductions en français2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [un]

    This study presents a description of the role of verbs in introducing the direct dialogue in literacy and of the way they are translated from Swedish to French in children’s literature. In order to adapt the text to the target language, these verbs sometimes change and lose their impact on the tone and character of the dialogue. This can be problematic in texts aimed for children where readability depends on a child’s language capacity. Another aim of this study is to expose des difficulties encountered in the transfer of values and emotional effects when translating children’s literature from source language to target language Our conclusion is that the Swedish children’s literature translated to French is often subject to modifications rather than translation of verbs that introduce direct dialogue. Consequently, dialogue meaning and character personalities are modified within the text translation. In our analysis of four Swedish children’s books and their translation to French we have seen that these adaptations are not made for adapting to the intended reader’s capacities in the target language or to the literacy of the source text but rather to adapt to certain linguistic norms relative to the style of French language.

    Etude de la traduction d’Esther Sermage du livre Faller fritt som i en dröm de Leif G.W Persson: Etude des techniques et méthodes de traduction utilisées dans le livre Comme dans un rêve 2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis was to analysis Esther Sermage’s translation of Leif G.W Persson’s book

    Faller Fritt som I en dröm which was published in 2011 in France under the name of Comme dans un rêve. The analysis focused on the methods of translation that Esther Sermage uses in a recurrent way, as the equivalence and the borrowing methods, and on the will of the translator to foreign as much as possible the French translation to give to her readers a very Swedish atmosphere. By those means, we have selected a number of twelve chapters in the book where we observed Esther Sermage’s translation and we followed Venuti, Berman, J.P Vinay, J. Darbelnet’ and other’s methods and theories of translation. At the end of our paper, we will analyze how the french public received the book Comme dans un rêve and what they thought about it.

    Étude des méthodes d'enseignement utilisées dans la classe de Français Langue Étrangère en Suède2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation discusses the general and systemized methods of foreign language didactics that have been developed at different periods. The dissertation also looks at teaching methods (strategies, tools, materials, exercises, activities, assignments, etc.) and the theory behind these. For the purpose of this study, teachers at a number of schools in Sweden completed a questionnaire about methodology, teaching strategies, and theory in relation to classroom practice. The study demonstrates the teaching methods that are used and the frequency of their use, as well as the way in which they relate to methodology. The study also shows that most teachers who completed the questionnaire principally employ one methodology: the cognitive methodology – the communicative approach.

    La vernacularisation du français dans le hip-hop au Cameroun:: Bref aperçu sur la particularité du camfranglais.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The French language spoken in France is not exactly the same as the one spoken in the former French colonies in sub-Saharan Africa. This is because languages always assume the cultural attributes of the social environment in which they develop. The goal of this thesis is to study the processes by which singers of hip-hop in Cameroon adapt the standard French language to their needs with the goal of reaching and moving the maximum number of listeners. To do that, we studied one variety of vernacular French called Camfranglais, in nine musical extracts (hip-hop).

    Le Programme d’études de français: Une étude comparative entre la Suède et l’Angleterre2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As a future high school French teacher, with the hope to teach in both Sweden and England, a personal interest has developed in how French is taught. Therefore, a com-parative study has been made of the two syllabuses, with focus on high school. The thesis begins with an overview of the historical ties between the two respective coun-tries and France and a discussion why French is offered from a younger age in England than in Sweden. This is mainly due to the fact that French is a "second" language in England while in Sweden it is a "third" language and learning English is more im-portant.

    The main objective of this thesis is to gain a better understanding of the French syllabus in Sweden and England, with the aim of analysing the significant differences between the two countries. Three aspects are discussed: the importance of giving teach-ers the freedom to decide the content of the course, the importance of teaching in the target language, and the benefits of exams.

    Complexité narrative et hybridité dans les romans Dolce agonia et Lignes de faille de Nancy Huston: Une étude au croisement de la sémiologie et de la transculturalité2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    How is it possible to approach the narrative complexity in the novels of Nancy Huston, a

    writer positionning herself between two cultures, especially if that complexity is reinforced by

    hybridization, a phenomenon that represents our time marked by connections between

    different cultures? Through a study crossing structuralist/semiological theories, particularly

    the more recent writings of Jacques Fontanille who sets back the enonciation in the heart of

    the narrative process, and a transcultural perspective, this essay tries to understand the

    specificity of Nancy Huston’s writing, and in a larger perspective the specificity of

    transcultural narratives. The text begins with the presentation of the two chosen disciplines as

    well as the identification of some contact points between them, followed by the analysis of

    two of Nancy Huston’s novels, Dolce agonia (2001) and Lignes de faille (2006). Finally, with

    the new perspective brought by the transcultural studies on the structuralist/semiological

    theories, it is possible to reconsider the enonciative process in trancultural novels and to

    confirm in that way their status as complex and hybrid narratives.

    L’Histoire dans le roman, Aurélien de Louis Aragon2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aurélien holds a particular place in the cycle of Le Monde Réel. Mixing memories and inventions, this text diverts in many ways from Aragon’s previous works. This romance novel is actually a social saga set in the interwar period. The main aim of this study has been to understand the way Aragon tells History in his novel. In order to answer that question, we have studied the composition of the text as well as the themes of war that appear through it.

    It has been observed that Aragon used his own memories as realistic points of references in this fiction. This aesthetics of Aragon’s "Mentir-Vrai" (true lying) intends to get closer to the truth of History. That has however led to consequences upon the writing style and the novelistic form. We could notice that war infiltrates indirectly both the writing and the characters’ minds. This specific writing of the war is a reflection both on History and on how to tell it.

    Le Petit Prince et ses deux traductions en suédois2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is an analysis and an evaluation of the re-translation into Swedish of "Le Petit Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (T2), published by Modernista in 2015, and its relation to the original French text as well as to the classical Swedish translation published by Rabén&Sjögren in 1952 (T1; the 2015 version, contemporary with the re-translation).

    The analysis is based on some concepts of Lita Lundquist (2007): the distinction between "imitative" and "functional" translation strategies, and the coherence between a "global strategy" and "local strategies". Furthermore, this analysis leads us to a distinction between "translation" and "revision" as presented by Philippe Bouquet (2012), and to a distinction between a linguistic definition of translation – the main approach of this work – and the scoiolinguistic definition by Toury (1995).

    The main results are 1) the discovery of a lack of a coherent global strategy in T2 – as opposed to T1 -

    and 2) the strong reliance of T2 on T1. Also, we found a remarkable local strategy in T2, a total removal of the Swedish personal pronoun man. These results are briefly discussed in the light of socio-cultural aspects and in a section on the applicability of the retranslation hypothesis (Tegelberg 2014).

    Abstract [en]

    This essay brings to light the details of the story of Indiana, a young Creole victim of male domination and the pressure imposed by the society of the time, but also and above all the feminist message conveyed by George Sand through his

    Indiana. After showing the close links that exist between the life of the author and the fictitious character of Indiana that she puts in scene in her eponymous novel, it is about presenting the main characters and analyzing the work to through the prism of a realist, romantic, social and ever-present feminism. The thesis is also interested in the reception of the book when it was released, by the intellectual elites of the time as well as by the readers of yesterday and today. He underlines rave reviews despite a certain reservation as to the gloomy picture that the author portrays of married women subjected to the diktat of macho laws. The analysis concluded on the boldness of a George Sand spearhead of feminism, one of the pioneers of which she was.

    Les Attitudes des élèves concernant le travail sur les textes2012Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [fr]

    Pour apprendre le français à l’école, en classe, on peut choisir plusieurs méthodes et stratégies différentes. Dans ce mémoire quatre différentes méthodes de travailler avec un texte en classe ont été examinées. Les attitudes des élèves concernant ces quatre méthodes ont été observées. Les élèves qui ont répondu aux questions ont fait des études de français au niveau 3 (steg 3), dans un lycée en Dalécarlie, en Suède. Dans leur manuel scolaire quatre textes courts ont été choisis. Les élèves ont lu les textes à la maison et en classe, pour ensuite travailler en classe avec le contenu. Pour le premier texte chaque élève a écrit un petit résumé, pour le deuxième texte ils ont répondu aux questions deux à deux, pour le troisième texte ils ont discuté le texte en petits groupes de quatre ou cinq personnes, et pour le quatrième et dernier texte ils ont répondu individuellement aux questions portant sur le texte.

      

    L’aspect le plus intéressant de l'étude a été de prendre connaissance de ce qui était perçu comme positif ou négatif concernant les quatre méthodes. Il semble qu'il soit difficile pour certains élèves de concentrer leur attention sur le travail s’ils travaillent en groupe. Certains élèves parlent d’autres choses et ne prennent pas leur responsabilité pour le travail. Parfois les élèves les plus compétents dans le groupe font le travail très vite sans faire attention aux élèves moins compétents. Ainsi les élèves moins compétents ne participent pas au travail et n’apprennent rien.

    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 ».

    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between a language and its culture is highlighted in this study through the Senegalese writer Amin ata Sow Fall’s book La grève des báttu. The need of using a native language for all aspects connected to its culture is pointed out by the major characteristics of the Senegalese culture as well as the language used to describe these. The study also onsiders the difficulties that many of the foreign colonies, like Senegal, are experiencing regarding the language. Senegal is being stuck between an official language which in this case is French, representing modernity, and a local language such as Wolof representing tradition. We will show that both languages are being just as necessary for the author, aiming to be as trustworthy as possible telling her story.

    This thesis aims to explore existing teaching methods for communication strategies in foreign language teaching in schools. The literature review shows that teaching methods are based on the concepts of awareness, exemplification and application / training. There are several factors that influence the development of communicative competence (including strategic competence): authentic and real task types, target language as the primary means of communication and metacognition.

    Abstract [en]

    A language is like a living thing where our ancestor’s views, feelings of happiness and disappointment can still be divined. At the same time it conveys our way of thinking, feeling and acting in our modern every-day life. All is included in the grammar, the words, the proverbs and the quotes of a language. The sounds emphasized by the intonation and the prosody allow us almost to feel the spirit of vitality, blues or elegance of a language and its speakers.

    Is it also possible to find the traces of historical and social events in the evolution of a language ?

    This is the central question of this study that follows the evolution of the French language from the spoken latin of the antiquity and compares with the corresponding evolution of other languages especially the Swedish.

    La formation d’une identité à l’intersection du genre, de l’ethnie et de la classe: Une analyse intersectionnelle de L’Amant de Marguerite Duras2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis, by use of a thematic approach, an intersectional analysis of The Lover byMarguerite Duras has been carried out. The aim was to examine how different power structuresinteract with one another in a colonial society. The research focused on the main femalecharacter’s search for a personal identity and how this pursuit is influenced by gender, ethnicityand class structures.The conclusion is that the character is experiencing a feeling of alienation from the communityof white colonizers because of her position as “a poor white girl”. This exclusion sometimeshelps her in opposing the norms and values that are imposed by the society, for example thelack of social and sexual liberty for women. Her behavior can however, in some regards, beviewed as a confirmation of the racist roles that exist in the colony. Having considered that, itis further argued that it is the description of the Chinese lover that is problematic, rather thanthe behavior of the female protagonist.

    Introduction: Transcultural Identity Constructions in a Changing World2016In: Transcultural Identity Constructions in a Changing World / [ed] Irene Gilsenan Nordin, Chatarina Edfeldt, Lung-Lung Hu, Herbert Jonsson, André Leblanc, Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2016, p. 11-20Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although the phenomenon of transculturality has existed as long as human culture, the increased speed of movement and communication worldwide has made it impossible to ignore in any aspect of cultural studies. In a society where changes were slow and foreign influences were few, an illusion of culture as homogeneous and static may have been easy to uphold, but in today’s ever-increasing flux of cultural change, the perspective of transculturality is more satisfactory in understanding human identity constructions. Compared with concepts such as interculturality, multiculturality, or hybridity, which all may have some relevance for describing cultural encounters, but which often presuppose the notion of cultural essentialism, the concept of transculturality has the advantage of recognising change and diversity, rather than focusing on boundaries or differences.

    Transcultural Identity Constructions in a Changing World2016Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume takes a broad outlook on the concept of transculturality. Contributions from 19 authors and specialists, of almost as many diverse origins, grapple with this concept, each in their own way. How can transculturality be described? How can it help us understand our world? Many of the chapters deal with literary texts, others with the stories told in movies, drama, and visual art. There are texts about the complexity of the European Burqa-Ban debate, the negative aspects of Portuguese multiculturalism, or the border-crossing experiences of Filipino immigrants in Ireland. Several chapters examine stereotypes, the idea of movement, the dissolution of cultural borders, or the nature of bilingual writing. It is a unique contribution to the field, on a virtually global scale.

    Le long trajet vers le Nord: de la traduction de la littérature de jeunesse française en suédois2015In: Médiations interculturelles entre la France et la Suède: Trajectoires et circulations de 1945 à nos jours / [ed] Mickaëlle Cedergren et Sylvain Briens (eds.), Stockholm: Stockholm University Press , 2015, p. 234-247Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Depuis très récemment, un changement est en train de se produire dans le domaine de la traduction de la littérature jeunesse: auparavant et pendant de nombreuses années, les ouvrages traduits venaient le plus souvent de la Suède pour être traduits en français (Gossas & Lindgren, 2011). Dans l’autre sens, on trouvait des imagiers plus ou moins sans texte, des bandes-dessinées (surtout franco-belges), des retraductions et quelques classiques comme les très populaires ouvrages de Jules Verne ou Le Petit Prince. Or, la littérature jeunesse française est certes abondante – et ce même si l’on s’en tient aux livres publiés en France, mais aussi souvent de grande qualité littéraire et iconique, ce qui devrait a priori encourager sa diffusion. Cette littérature a de surcroît la chance de pouvoir surfer sur la vague actuelle des traductions du français au suédois de livres ne faisant pas partie de cette catégorie. Mais il est bien connu que le système littéraire suédois de la littérature jeunesse comporte peu de livres traduits, en dehors des traductions massives d’ouvrages en anglais. Les questions auxquelles nous répondrons lors de notre présentation sont : Quels sont les livres actuellement traduits du français vers le suédois ? Qui les traduit (quels éditeurs et quels traducteurs) ? Nous allons ainsi montrer quelle a été l’évolution depuis 1970 jusqu’à nos jours. Nous ferons aussi le lien avec nos études précédentes concernant le sens inverse, c’est-à-dire la traduction en français de la littérature suédoise contemporaine pour la jeunesse et de nos résultats en la matière sur les livres traduits, les éditeurs et les traducteurs. Nous utiliserons comme base théorique la théorie du polysystème (Even-Zohar), notamment concernant le rôle de la littérature traduite dans un système littéraire, et les études descriptives de la traduction (voir Toury, Shavit, etc.).

    L’esthétique de la misère humaine: Le rôle de l’alcool dans L’Assommoir d’Émile Zola2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to demonstrate how Zola in

    L’Assommoir considers alcohol and how naturalism is a tool to lecture without aesthetics, or rather develops a new aesthetic, hard and brutal.

    We have also tried to analyse how the aesthetics of alcohol marries or nuances the moralizing message of the author in this work.

    We have highlighted the cause and effect relationship between alcohol and human mediocrity. The guiding line is that if mediocrity can affect all men, it affects the working class more often and harder, leaving them in or adding to a state of social and financial distress, even hunger. We have seen that alcoholism is the main trigger and accelerator of this mediocrity, that it breaks dreams and binds to misery.

    L’infidélité dans le couple : Charles et Emma Bovary dans Madame Bovary de Flaubert et Dinah et Loulou dans Traversée de la Mangrove de Maryse Condé2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work on infidelity in the couple discusses the different sources of trouble and their consequences in the life of the couple. The different opinions of various authors on the cause of infidelity in marriage are discussed. Female education during the nineteenth century sheds light on the handicaps which led some girls in trouble because the education of the time had not prepared them to become good wives. This essay shows the image of religion in the two works: Madame Bovary and Crossing the mangrove. The question is how the authors portray religion in these works and why they adopt infidelity to save the woman of her boredom. Finally, the comparison of this boredom is made to see that in these couples even if they belong to different periods, boredom in marriage is the same. These authors made the same strategies to save the couple from their boredom. Moral and religious critics have been used to address the issue, as a Bible reading of these two works has been done.

    Le choix des personnages dans une œuvre littéraire: Le choix des personnages dans Madame Bovary de Gustave Flaubert et dans Candide de Voltaire2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [fr]

    Le choix des personnages dans une œuvre est une analyse sur le chemin qu’un auteur emprunte pour choisir les personnages qui vont occuper les grandes lignes de son œuvre. Les œuvres analysées sont deux ouvrages classiques d’écrivains français, en l’occurrence Madame Bovary de Gustave Flaubert et Candide de Voltaire. Il s’agissait d’essayer de remonter au début de la composition et de suivre l’auteur jusqu’à la fin de son ouvrage. La comparaison des personnages tant principaux que secondaires des deux œuvres, leurs actions, leurs caractères et leurs interventions dans différentes circonstances constitue la partie centrale de l’analyse.

    Une comparaison de films africains postcoloniaux et de leurs metteurs en scène2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [un]

    Denna uppsats handlar om afrikansk film och dess relation till sina forna kolonisatörer. Eftersom filmen är ett ungt konstuttryck som dessutom är dyrt och tekniskt avancerat, så har många gånger utbildning av regissörer och finansiering skett i eller kommit från det land som länderna frigjort sig ifrån. Syftet med uppsatsen är att belysa den komplexa post-koloniala relationen mellan de gamla kolonierna och dess gamla kolonisatörer, i skapandet av afrikansk film. Jag valde ut tre afrikanska filmer vid filmfestivalen CinemAfrica i februari i Stockholm, som visar ett urval av nyproducerad afrikansk film. Uppsatsen innehåller också en överblick över hur den afrikanska filmen utvecklats fram till idag. Olika genres, innehåll och stilar beskrivs. Resultatet av studien visar att i de tre filmerna som jag har studerat, är det väldigt tydligt att regissörens bakgrund och nuvarande situation i hög grad speglar sig i filmerna. Den som utbildat sig i och fortfarande lever i Afrika har gjort en film som känns afrikansk och handlar om afrikanska problem. De andra två som levt och verkat till stor del i Europa, och finansierats av europeiska bolag, har en annan målgrupp. Deras filmer är också en blandning av afrikanskt och europeiskt innehåll och stämning.

    Un discours persuasif: Étude narrative de L'Auberge et Le Horla – deux contes fantastiques de Guy de Maupassant2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay consists of a structural narrative analysis of two fantastic short stories by Guy de Maupassant: The Inn and the second version of The Horla. In the first of these stories the narration is extradiegetic, meaning that the narrator is positioned outside the fictional world. The second text, on the other hand, is an example of an intradiegetic narration – the narrator is thus a character in the story. The overall aim of the study is to investigate how the discourse of the narrator, whether he is extradiegetic or intradiegetic, influences the perception of the stories and the protagonists. In order to meet this aim, we start by identifying some narrative strategies which are applied in the stories in order to evoke the reader’s hesitation and, thereby, create the fantastic effect. Depending on whether the narration is extradiegetic or intradiegetic, it is observed that these strategies differ from each other. Nevertheless, they work together to awaken the reader’s hesitation, leading him thus to consider the existence of the supernatural in the diegetic world. Finally, it is revealed how the discourse of the narrator influences the way the reader perceives the behavior of the protagonists as well as their sanity. In both texts, there is no doubt that the protagonist eventually loses his mind. However, while the knowledge of the omniscient narrator finally helps the reader to solve the fantastic mystery in The Inn, the mystery is never resolved in The Horla. This seems to be a consequence of the limited perception and knowledge of the intradiegetic narrator.

    Fan activities applied to online university education2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The presentation discusses a possible way of adapting internet fan activities to the academic level online education. At the Dalarna University (Sweden), which is specialized in online education, there was a three-year project called “Informal Learning Environment”, which explored the educational aspects of fan activities, and the possible ways to apply them in language (French, German, Japanese, Portuguese) and literature courses.

    The educational effects of fan activities are mentioned by various authors (e.g. James Paul Gee), and we focused on two activities, Fan Fiction and Scanlation.

    In the Fan Fiction exercise, the students in French and German Literature had an introduction on Fan Fiction, then were asked to choose one of the literary works studied during the semester, and write a short fictional story based on it. Each student uploaded his/her text to the learning platform and then received peer-feedback from others.

    In the Scanlation exercise, a group work was designed for the Translation course (Japanese-English translation). Students formed groups of threes and fours and each group translated two different chapters from Shisso Nikki, a manga by Hideo Aduma. They had two weeks to work together, and then the translations were uploaded to the learning platform. Each student then gave comment and feedback to the chapters translated by other groups.

    In all courses, students were asked to evaluate the activities afterwards. The evaluation focused on if they enjoyed the activity, what they learned, and what the peer-feedback meant to them. Since we teach only online courses, the web-based interaction becomes very central. This is also the case in fan communities. Therefore, our hypothesis is that connecting fan activities with web-based teaching may be a way to develop and improve the formal academic learning environment.

    Mémoire de Licence, université de Dalécarlie Les rapports hommes-femmes dans Les Liaisons dangereuses de Choderlos de Laclos2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this Bachelor’s thesis is to do an analysis of the novel of Choderlos de Laclos Dangerous liaisons and to answer to four important questions:

    How are men and women depicted in the novel of Choderlos de Laclos and what is the nature of the relations between the characters of both sexes.

    Is it a condemnation or an illustration and defense of the libertinage ?

    Which were the moral effects of this novel upon the society of the 18th century ?

    What was the writer’s attitude towards women ?

    To answer these four important questions, we have decided to do an analysis of the novel, but also to put the focus on the sociology of literature, more exactly on the horizon of expectation and the reception of the work. We have used the correspondence between M. Choderlos de Laclos and Mrs Riccoboni in order to establish the author’s attitude towards women.

    In conclusion, we will demonstrate that the writer was advanced for his time and was not a misogynist as he tried to improve the education of women.

    Abstract [en]

    This essay is a study of different novels of Guy de Maupassant with a focus on the elements of the fantasy genre. We are going to study the novels of this author that are named

    Sur L’Eau, La Peur, Magnétisme, Apparition, Lui, La Main, L’Auberge et Le Horla. We will try to describe how the fan-tasy appears in the studied novels. To do this, it will be necessary to define the fantasy as a literary genre before seeing how the fantasy operates where it appears in the studied novels. We will also make short comparisons of the novels with each other’s in order to compare the different elements of the fantasy. Our analysis will focus on various elements. We shall point out in particular how the fantasy appears from a material point of view, from a psychological point of view and from a linguis-tic point of view. On the other hand, we will analyse two essential elements in the fantasy genre, which are the theme of the double as well as that of fear.

    Abstract [en]

    This work initially aims at the role and image of Zahra / Ahmed, who represents the bucolic Moroccan woman in the novel

    The Sacred Night by Tahar Ben Jelloun who struggles to find her lost female identity. For this, we used Greimas’s scheme at the beginning of our analysis because it helped us to show the role and the dramatic situation of Zahra / Ahmed in the story. We also deepened our work by analysing the family environment of Zahra and its relations, the liberation of the body, the religious aspect, obedience in order to confirm the tragedy of rural women in Morocco. Finally, our work ends with a study of the status of women in a traditional society in which man establishes his power over woman.
