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. Active in the Swedish Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies.

 

Research

The topic of my PhD project is the different functions of pastoral in Swedish literature from the Mid-Eighteenth Century to the early Nineteenth Century. I am particularly interested in themes such as nature, urbanity, patriotism and nostalgia. My dissertation will examine writings by Hedvig Charlotta Nordenflycht (1718–1763), Gustaf Philip Creutz (1731–1785), Carl Michael Bellman (1740–1795) and Erik Johan Stagnelius (1793–1823).
