    Intuition of an Infinite Obligation: Narrative Ethics and Postmodern Gnostics in the Fiction of E. L. Doctorow2010 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Grounded in theoretical studies of postmodern and narrative ethics, this book proposes the need for a re-examination of E. L. Doctorow's work from an ethical perspective. Through in-depth analyses of previously neglected intertexts, it questions the classification of his fiction as an expression of postmodern skepticism. Seven of Doctorow's most widely acclaimed novels are dealth with in chronological order, tracing his finely tuned characterizations of the human quest for narrative truth. Growing out of the early protagonists' vague sense of moral consciousness is their recognition of an obligation to interpret signs from and for the Other. Through logical deliberation and close reading, the study gradually identifies the narrative voice of the postmodern gnostic.

    Recognizing the Ache of the Other: Jonathan Franzen's Reasons for Bothering2014In: Ethics and Poetics: Ethical Recognitions and Social Reconfigurations in Modern Narratives / [ed] Champion, Margrét Gunnarsdóttir & Goloubeva, Irina Rasmussen (eds.), Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2014, p. 107-134Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Having undermined any notion of innocent language, postmodern fiction has been criticized for its loss of connection to the social sphere, rendering null and void its potential for bringing about political reconfigurations. All that postmodernist authors can manage is self-reflexive irony—a parody of representation. Yet, as a result of essays like “Why Bother?” (1969), Jonathan Franzen has been placed in a new category of writers who are worried that the inertia of postmodernism has robbed them of serious readers. “Where to find the energy to engage with a culture in crisis when the crisis consists in the impossibility of engaging with the culture?” he asks.

      Franzen’s most recent novel Freedom is his attempt to answer this question. Focusing on his characters’ deep anxiety and sense of remorse at having made mistakes in their lives, he portrays their relentless agonizing over bad decisions as illustrations of the flip-side of their liberty, or rather, what it is grounded in: ethics. Freedom is a heavy burden, especially for the novel’s female protagonist, who, as a teen, has rejected her politically active, New York-liberal family to study and play basketball in the more conservative Midwest. The hyper-competitive Patty Berglund’s efforts—first to be a team-player, then to be as “good” as her self-righteous, environmentalist husband Walter, and finally to trump his moral superiority by over-mothering their son Joey—all backfire on her, leaving her to self-medicate a mid-life depression with alcohol.

     As Emmanuel Levinas posits, prior to our sense of freedom is the recognition of “the other in me,” which comes with an infinite responsibility. For Levinas, justice is what recognizes rather than institutes this responsibility. In his essay “Difficult Freedom,” he asserts that ethics is the primordial religious emotion, and that justice should be the raison d’être of the state, not the other way round. This essay will demonstrate that it is not any codified moral law that brings about justice. Rather, it is the recognition that freedom is always already preceded by a primordial responsibility to the face of the Other, which is in turn checked by the presence of a third party. It is this ethical challenge that drives the plot of Franzen’s novel about people who, in the words of the Berglund family’s neighbors, have to “figure out how to live.”

    Den orättvisaste orättvisan.: Heroism och alternativ maskulinitet i Hans Erik Engqvists ungdomsroman Tredagarskriget2014In: Barnboken, ISSN 0347-772X, E-ISSN 2000-4389, Vol. 37, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     ”Wicked Wrongfulness. Heroism and Alternative Versions ofMasculinity in Hans Erik Engqvist’s Young Adult Novel Three DaysWar”. This article examines the re-evaluation of modern masculinity in theYA novel Three Days War by the Swedish author Hans Erik Engqvist (b.1934). The central argument is that the fictional representation of ChildrenPlaying War in the novel is intertwined with the imagining of competingmasculinities as well as opposing ideologies in post-war Sweden. Thus,the expression of institutionalized middle-class masculinity is contrastedto the representation of an alternative left wing working-class masculinityin opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. Through differentallusions to heroic men and heroic behaviour in 19th century literature andAmerican Western films the novel invites the reader to evoke hegemonicmasculinity as a schema shaping both the understanding of the young charactersand their play. But the novel also interrogates this institutionalizedmyth of hegemonic masculinity and sets the main character, as well as thereader, in search of an alternative version of the heroic male.
