Person

I am professor of literary studies at the Centre for Languages and Literature and head of the department.

My main field of research is literature and the public sphere.

Since 2013 I am working on the project "Negotiating Literary Value: Sweden 2013", financed by The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Fund. The aim of the project is to develop an up-to-date understanding of the nature of literary value, and how it is created, by investigating today's Swedish literary field and book-market, which have undergone substantial changes in recent decades. In modern society, literature is credited with great social, cultural, and existential value.
