About me

My academic interests relate to literary stylistics, discourse analysis, cognitive linguistics, rhetorics, grammar and pedagogy.

Research

Current projects

The style of Tomas Tranströmer

The aim is to study the style of the Swedish poet and Nobel laureate Tomas Tranströmer, with a focus on the lexical level. Metaphors, metonymi, abstract/concrete and the three spatial dimensions are studied. The analyses are performed using cognitive linguistic methods.

Publications:

2017. How to Build a Metaphor: Novel Metaphors Construed by Concrete Elements in Tomas Transtromer’s Poetry  Style. 51.4. Pp. 506-525. (no fulltext)

2015. Metaforik i Tranströmers poesi. In: Östman, Carin (ed.), Det skönlitterära språket. Stockholm: Morfem förlag. Pp. 59–79. (In Swedish, no fulltext)

Loaded words

Words which are replaced over time are studied. Data from three domains are collected: health, sexuality and ethnicity. The "labels" all refer to minorities, and the labels are analysed in relation to language policy and language change in a micro perspective. The study is carried out by using methods from discourse analysis and congitive linguistics.

Publications:

2014. Laddade ord. Hur nya uttryck, som kategoriserar människor, tas in i svenskan. In: Språk och stil 24, Pp. 72–100. (full text in Swedish with an English abstract)

Accomplished research projects

Adjectives from a cognitive linguistic perspective

For a long time now, adjectives have been in the shade vis-à-vis the verbs and the nouns. However, semantically speaking, they are as intriguing as their word class siblings. The project sheds light on dimensional adjectives and the relation of oppositeness. Further, a broad overview of related research from the congitive linguistic domain has been compiled (2013a).

Planned projects

Being good in a globalized world. A linguistic study of discourses on humanitarian aid

The purpose of the project is to explore how humanitarian aid is defined, discussed, and legitimized in contemporary Sweden and how citizens are positioned within the discursive struggle concerning what humanitarian aid is and should be. Togheter with Theres Bellander (Stockholm University) and Karin Hagren Idevall (Uppsala University).

Female friendship in the literature

Together with Maria Cristina Lombardi (Università di Napoli "L'Orientale").

Miscellaneous

I am passionately devoted to fiction literature, which not only shows in academic involvements (literary stylistics) but also in my own fiction publications,  Blodapelsin (Aglaktuq 2014) and Den ryska sjalen (Aglaktuq 2010) (both in Swedish). This dedication has led to arrangements where I have initiated, led or contributed to various literary saloons in public librarys, book shops and literary festivals.
