About me

PhD student in Comparative Literature since September 2017. Born in 1989. Master's degree in Comparative Literature from Uppsala University. Studies in French, English and Psychology.



The topic of my PhD project is the evolution of pastoral literature in Sweden from the Mid-Eighteenth Century to the early Nineteenth Century, a period encompassing both the high point of Swedish pastoral and its decline around the turn of the century. I am particularly interested in themes such as ideology, nostalgia, nature and heritage. My dissertation will examine writings by Olof von Dalin, Hedvig Charlotta Nordenflycht, Gustaf Philip Creutz and Erik Johan Stagnelius, among others.
