Ph.D student, spanish studies.
In my doctoral thesis I'm investigating textual elements in the poetry of Mexican author Octavio Paz form the 1970s and onwards (Pasado en claro, Vuelta and Árbol adentro). The theoretical framework of the study is based on Jonathan Culler's A Theory of the Lyric (2015). The study has the aim to return to a reading of the poems of Paz, written in a period of his life in which the focus on his political ideas, personal influence and biography has been dominating the reception and research.
In my more recent research I have begun to study the conditions of translations into Swedish of Octavio Paz's poetry from a sociological perspective, an interest the is related to myself being a translator of poetry between Spanish and Swedish.
