Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests include the contemporary French-language novel (in particular Canadian literature), migration literature and world literature, comparative aspects of the contemporary French and Swedish novel, and the works of the French-Spanish writer Michel del Castillo (born in 1933). Further interests are  cosmopolitan literary contacts in French in the 18th century, and literary didactics. In my PhD dissertation Pratiques de l'ici, altérité et identité dans six romans québécois des années 1989-2002 (Stockholm University, 2005), I treated narrative identity, according to Paul Ricoeur, in a selection of Québécois novels published around the turn of the millennium. The authors studied were: Bertrand Gervais, Pierre Gobeil, Pauline Harvey, Wajdi Mouawad, Rober Racine and LiseTremblay. In 2013, I published the bilingual anthology Le roman migrant au Québec et en Scandinavie (Peter Lang). I regularly publish on my topics of interest in French, English and Swedish.
