  • Enahanda läsning : En queer tolkning av romancegenren
  • 2018
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This doctoral thesis investigates popular romance, a mass-cultural genre with a large female audience. Popular romance is often considered ”lowbrow” and is referred to by terms such as ”porn” and ”garbage”. The female reader of this so called “sentimental trash” is often portrayed as naïve and unworldly. The thesis makes this derogatory view of the genre its point of departure, to investigate what cultural understandings of gender and sexuality the critique against popular romance entails. The thesis further investigates how these conceptions of gender and sexuality deviate from and challenge a culturally promoted and normative sexuality.The thesis consists of six chapters. The first chapter describes the selection of the empirical material and the theoretical and methodological framework. The empirical material consists of the three novels in the popular series Fifty Shades of Grey and the four novels and five films in the popular series Twilight. The thesis places itself within the field of feminist cultural studies and queer theory. It makes use of the concept of masturbation (both literal and figurative) as an analytical entry point and as a method focusing on the “here and now” of romance reading.The second chapter contextualizes the study by defining the term “popular romance” and by providing a brief historical overview of the genre. Previous research on popular romance is presented and discussed in relation to the derogatory view of the genre.The third chapter studies the Swedish media commentaries on Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight to define how the rejected romance reader is conceptualized, and how this romance reader is presumed to be reading. This “romance reader” is thereafter discussed in relation to the Western historical discourse on masturbation, “female illness” and (women’s) private reading. The chapter closes with a discussion on the form of reading that the romance reader is associated with. This self-immersed, excessive and over-invested reading form is defined as “masturbatory”.The fourth chapter explores the act of romance reading when defined as a sexual activity. The romance community is compared to the “second wave” feminism of the 1970s in order to demonstrate how the genre establishes a separatist female community where relations, positions, and identifications are in motion, revealing both homoerotic and autoerotic elements to this homosocial context.In the fifth chapter, a close reading of the material is performed with a focus on the “here and now” of the reading situation. The dichotomy of desiring subject and desired object is problematized in relation to looks and gaze. The thesis argues that the romance text uses detailed and intimate descriptions to instill a sexual charge and to freeze the flow of the storyline in order to make room for constant erotic contemplation. These “frozen moments” and the repetitiveness of the genre are discussed in relation to theories of queer temporality. The romance text constructs a room “outside of time” that privileges the overwhelming pleasures of the “here and now”. This liminal room is not only available for the heroine and hero of the story, but for the romance reader as well.The sixth and final chapter ties together the main arguments of the thesis in an overarching discussion on how conceiving romance reading as a form of masturbation challenges previous research on popular romance and the gendering of and contempt for mass culture.

  • Drottningens kropp och vetenskapens pris
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Tidskrift för Genusvetenskap. - 1654-5443 .- 2001-1377. ; 38:3
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This article investigates the relation between science respectively nation, class and gender in the televised Nobel Banquet. The body of the Swedish Queen is used as a lens in order to analyse intersectional power dimensions.  Drawing on cultural, media, and gender studies, this article examines the mediated persona of the Queen in the televised Nobel Banquet via contextualised textual analysis.The televised Nobel Banquet, like the awards ceremony preceding it, provides representations of both science and a social elite. But not all representatives of the Swedish elite equally attract the gazes of the cameras: the focus of attention is in particular on the Swedish queen, who since her debut in 1976 has received more TV time than anyone else – male or female, scientist or not. How is her body represented in the televised Nobel Banquet? And what are the consequences of these representations for the image of science?The analyses shows that the body of the Queen signifies that heterosexuality, class affiliation, and nationality are important and normative factors in the discourse of science. In the televised Nobel Banquet, her body is a symbol of the aspired status of science, representing its desire to belong among the heterosexual and white elites as well as an acknowledging of a traditional, ideal femininity.

  • Jewel in the Crown : The Nobel Banquet Broadcast as Co-Construction
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Nordicom Review. - 1403-1108 .- 2001-5119. ; 39:2, s. 111-126
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This study explores the aims of the Nobel Banquet broadcast, produced by the Swedish public service company SVT and the Nobel Foundation. The study suggests that the programme can be viewed as a co-construction of science and media, and that the Nobel Foundation has three primary purposes: 1) to teach the audience about science; 2) to honour the laureates; and 3) to maintain and increase the status of the Nobel prize. SVT, for their part, has two main purposes: 1) to teach their audience about science, and 2) to entertain. The aims of the Nobel Foundation and SVT may seem disparate, but they are interrelated. At the same time, the subtleties between the entities create a tension that develops through mutual negotiations. The study ends with a discussion of two unexpected findings: 1) the shared, yet essentially differently-grounded aims of both parties to inform about science, and 2) the fact that their scientific content has increased in both absolute and relative terms over the years, a finding that questions notions of a continuous mediatisation of social institutions.

Drawingon cultural, media and gender studies, this article examines the mediatedpersona of the Queen in the televised Nobel Banquet via contextualisedtextual analysis.The article suggests that the purpose of the Nobel Foundation in invitingthe royals is to enhance the social status of science. But it is the Queenwho has received more TV time than anyone else – scientist or royalty –since her TV-debut in 1976. How can the camera focus on her silent bodybe interpreted in relation to science? This article suggests that the meaningof the Queen’s body also implies certain understandings of central powerdimensions. The body of the Queen signifies that gender, heterosexuality,class affiliation, nationality and race are important and normative factors inscientific discourse. At the Nobel Banquet, the representation of her bodyidentifies science as associated with the heterosexual,

  • The Nobel celebrity-scientist : genius and personality
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Celebrity Studies. - 1939-2397 .- 1939-2400. ; 7:2, s. 234-248
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Scientists are a poorly covered area of research in the field of celebrity studies. This article attempts to rectify this issue by discussing representations of science and scientists in a televised Nobel Banquet on Swedish public-service television, SVT. The televised Nobel Banquet is a genre hybrid that consists of two genres; namely, science communication and award show. Drawing on cultural, media, and gender studies, this article examines the mediated persona of the scientist in the televised Nobel Banquet via contextualised textual analysis. The main questions of this article are as follows: in what ways do the media, the genre, and the idea of geniality affect the representation of the scientist? The article suggests that the increasing celebrification' of scientists is characteristic of the past several decades, and that, among other factors, this has been due to the entry of aspects of entertainment into banquet broadcasts. Through such processes, the celebrity-scientist' has emerged within the high-status sphere of science. However, a very specific type of celebrity is represented in the Nobel context: the celebrity-scientist is commonly a white man of high education whose fame has been reached through hard work in competition with others of the same kind. This representation of a scientist and its associated quality of genius will here be examined from a gender perspective.

  • Sempronia's Song : Attitudes to Women's Music-making in Ancient Rome
  • 2015
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This study explores attitudes towards women’s music-making in ancient Rome (c. 120 BC–130 AD), as expressed in love poetry, satire, letters, historiography, biography, rhetoric and philosophy. The texts are studied from an intersectional perspective considering gender, social status, age and ethnicity to explain various attitudes. Gender-theoretical concepts of differentiation, implementation of hierarchy and master suppression techniques explain the need for controlling the Roman gender order and women’s music-making. The study demonstrates that the traditional picture of women musicians as either prostitutes or decent, musically-talented matrons needs to be nuanced, and that the attitudes were more complex than previously assumed.Some Roman authors show a positive attitude to women’s musical talents, especially love poets, but also writers of other genres, as long as it was performed on “appropriate” instruments in accordance with the social status of the woman in question. The musical skills of a woman should not override her modesty and virtue. A young woman was encouraged to display musical talents. This enhanced her beauty and attractiveness in the eyes of a husband-to-be. Older music-making women were, on the other hand, ridiculed as unrespectable. The labelling of women musicians in Rome as “non-Roman” could be another way of differentiating non-respectable from respectable women, but such identifying could also serve to evoke “exotic” attraction, or for an artist to require a certain status or a sense of belonging.The results obtained from the ancient Roman sources are further augmented by comparison with more recent periods in musical history, displaying a long tradition of rather similar attitudes as a result of patriarchal structures: in seventeenth century Italy Pope Innocent XI in an edict tried to prohibit women from playing music, since this would be injurious to proper modesty. In the twenty-first century world-leading women musicians such as Madonna and Mariah Carey are publicly scorned for their older age in relation to their music-making.In ancient Rome both women and music needed to be controlled: Music was unpredictable and could evoke unexpected feelings and temptations, whereas women held the key to pure marital breed and the Roman family line.
