About me

PhD Candidate in Literature.



Focusing on both print and electronic literature, I am mainly interested in the act of reading, and in bringing together literary theory, cognitive psychology and neuropsychology. 
In my dissertation project I am investigating how different aspects of information processing is foregrounded in literature written in the ”digitalization era” (starting in the mid 90’s with the popularization of the personal computer and Internet), as well as in the act of reading this literature.
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).
