  • Naturalization, desautomatization, and estrangement: Problems of literary reception and cognition in academic teaching
  • 2005

  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Presentation of a research project, grounded on perspectives and concepts mainly from reception theory (Iser, Jauß, Stierle), cultural sociology (Bourdieu’s habitus), and translation theory (Lefevere, Pym). The procect aims at contributing to the know-ledge and development of theoretical and practical approaches to literary fiction in aca-demic teaching situations. The issue is how to teach the art of reading the literary text as literature—as a literary artefact and an aesthetic process – and not primarily as an il-lustration of cultural habits and ideolgies, or as didactic mediation (as is too often the case). The project starts from the idea of the literary text as a double-sided phenomenon, wavering between recognition and estrangement—which is what the title of the project alludes to. On the one hand the literary text appeals to the reader’s competence of recognizing the repertoire of the text within the current culture. Examples of ’recognizable’ elements are plot-types, motifs, generic variations, and so on. But on the other hand, what is specifically literary in the literary text is precisely the existence of estranging devices that prevent immediate recognition and desautomatize habitual ways of reading. Literary estrangement means breaking the reader’s horizon of expectations and obstructing the reading, but it also means pointing to a new frame of reference and alternative ways of seeing and understanding the text. Thus, literary estrangement both prevents spontaneous reading and promotes an attentive reading with new dimensions of perceiving, and also of reflecting on the text and the problematics displayed in it. Thus, basic assumptions are that literary texts are cultural meeting places, and that literature, as a cultural tool, desautomatizes language (Sklovskij, Lotman). This means that literature, in breaking the flow of habitual unreflective reading, also provides unique opportunities to introduce the reader to unfamiliar values, ideas and modes of thinking. Literature in this way mediates human experience from different times, cultures and societies. The project studies teaching situations in academic contexts, textual strategies in hand-books, anthologies, and literary works, and reading strategies – actual encounters between student-readers and texts. Thus, how to improve an attentive and reflective way of reading in academic teaching will be investigated. To that end textual strategies will be studied from a theoretical point of view as well as and academic student’s actual reception of them in practical teaching situations. Also how translations of literary texts affect the literary strategies will be studied, especially the interaction between devices of recognition / estrangement and their actual reception. Finally, translation in itself exemplifies a reception of the literary text translated: it is in itself a reader’s response to that text.

  • Conceptions of Literature in University Language Courses

  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this article we set out to explore and discuss reasons for reading literary texts in university curricula of foreign languages. Our analysis is based on 2 sources of information: 16 syllabi of Spanish as a foreign language and a questionnaire in which 11 university instructors teaching these syllabi express their intentions. We point to a number of risks when emphasis is predominantly placed on instrumental goals such as acquisition of vocabulary and grammar or cultural knowledge. We suggest, instead, that the literary modules within language curricula should formulate their own specific goals. Rather than privileging linguistic and cultural competences to be trained, the literary modules could, for example, raise students' awareness of the facts that there are many ways of reading a text but that interpretation nevertheless remains a historically situated and constrained activity.

    • In this article I set out to discuss translation and exile in a short story by Paul Groussac that was first published in English -titled "A Hero"- and later on in Spanish -titled "La Herencia"-. To this end, consideration is taken both to the publishing circumstances and the textual relations that can be established with other texts of the French-Argentinian autor as to how diferent reading audiences are adressed by each of the versions of the story.

    • ABSTRACT || In La Anunciación (2007) by María Negroni, a survivor of the Dirty War in Argentina narrates her quest to reconstitute herself as a subject, in exile, thirty years later. Thus, the novel inserts itself in the series of narratives about the memories of the last dictatorship in Argentina. However, at the same time, departing from referentiality, the novel creates obstacles for a mimetic reading. This paper argues that this is achieved through the discussion about art that mainly focuses on the character of Emma, the painter, and on the pictorial tradition of the Annunciation. Nonetheless, this departure from referentiality is by no means complete as the narrative keeps a dialectical relationship with history and memory. Accordingly, this article suggests that the novel puts forward a utopian idea of art that enters in dialogue with the utopian ideals of the revolutionary movements of the 1970s. RESUMEN || En La Anunciación (2007) de María Negroni una sobreviviente de la Guerra Sucia en Argentina narra su intento de volver a constituirse como sujeto en el exilio, treinta años más tarde. A través de esta temática, se inserta en la narrativa argentina de la memoria de la última dictadura. Al mismo tiempo, la novela, desvinculándose de lo referencial, obstaculiza una lectura mimética. El presente trabajo argumenta que esto se logra a través de la discusión sobre el arte, discusión que, principalmente, se nuclea alrededor del personaje de la pintora, Emma, y de la tradición pictórica de la Anunciación. Pero esta desvinculación de ninguna manera es total, sino que se mantiene en una relación dialéctica con la Historia y con la memoria. De ahí, planteamos que, a través esa misma discusión sobre el arte, la narrativa propone una idea utópica de este, que entra en diálogo con las utopías de los movimientos revolucionarios de la década de 1970

  • El encuentro imposible. La conformación del fantástico ambiguo en la narrativa breve argentina. (1862-1910)
  • 2002
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This dissertation concentrates on the textual analysis of five short stories from the period 1962-1910, all of which share the same characteristic: they all present the coexistence of a natural and a supernatural domain, being these two domains incompatible according to the premises proposed by the text. Considering the historical time in which these stories appear, a period in which a faith in reason as the means to achieve ‘civilisation’ and ‘progress’ predominates, the coexistence of these two orders in a zone of disquieting ambiguity appears as a challenge to the hegemony of reason and, in an extended sense, as a challenge to the modernisation project. Furthermore, considering that the authors of these stories belonged to the dominant classes, be it politically or intellectually, the challenge can thus be said to come from the same social classes that formulated the official discourse. In order to understand how these texts construct the ambiguity between a natural and a supernatural domain, the following questions were posed: At which levels of the texts and how is the ambiguity created and sustained? When studying the use of narrative techniques, it could be seen that the technical preoccupation is very much present in these stories, and that the creation of a natural and a supernatural domain is in great measure a product of the narrative act. When analysing the use of motives, figures and themes, it could be seen that through these, the stories inscribe themselves in the gothic tradition. This contributes to the creation of the supernatural domain. The motif of the threshold and its associated motif, the motif of the gothic castle, were shown to play a fundamental roll in the structuring of the textual space in which the coexistence of the domains will take place. The analysis of the use of the discourses of science and progress showed that science not always contributes to the creation of the natural domain, as well as confirmed the presupposition that the discourse of science and the discourse of spiritualism were not separated by clear limits. A study of the social, cultural and political context in which the stories were published, contributed to a better understanding of the dialogue – or dialogues – that these stories kept with this context. The stories are Juana Manuela Gorriti’s “Quien escucha su mal oye” (1865), Eduardo L. Holmberg’s “El ruiseñor y el artista” (1876), Eduarda Mansilla’s “El ramito de romero” (1877), Atilio Chiappori’s “La corbata azul” (1904) and Leopoldo Lugones’ “Un fenómeno inexplicable” (1906).
