About me

PhD Candidate in Literature.


Focusing on print, electronic, and digitized literature, I am mainly interested in correlations of the act of reading and (ever-changing) literary conventions and in bringing together literary theory, cognitive psychology and neuropsychology. In my dissertation project I am investigating various effects of "the digitization” on swedish literature (with examples from the years 1993-2013), with a special emphasis on the reader’s attention.

I also write about crime fiction. Most recently, in the essay ”Skoga och skogarna” (Deckarnas svenska landskap. Från Skåne till Lappland. Ed. Kerstin Bergman, Stockholm: Makadam, 2014), I discuss the use of landscape in the novels of Swedish crime novelist Maria Lang (the pen name of Dagmar Lange, 1914-1991).
