Description of research and teaching

In my research I have specialized in the field of literary multilingualism and in particular on the theory and methodology of textual multilingualism. After the completion of my doctoral thesis Att skriva sig över språkgränserna. Flerspråkighet i Jac. Ahrenbergs och Elmer Diktonius prosa (2014) [Crossing Linguistic Borders in Writing. Multilingualism in the Prose of Jac. Ahrenberg and Elmer Diktonius] I have explored new theoretical and methodological approaches to multilingualism in connection to contemporary literature in the research groups "Multilingualism in Contemporary Literature in Finland" (Kone Foundation 2014-2016) and "Late-Modern Spatiality in Finland-Swedish Prose 1990-2010" (The Society of Swedish Literature in Finland" 2014-2017). Among my research interests are multilingualism and intermediality, multimodality, spatiality and the role of readers. I have studied Finland's Swedish-language literature from the 1880's up until today, and in my current research I also investigate contemporary poetry and prose fiction from Sweden. As assistant professor of Nordic literature I teach courses in early and modern Swedish and Finland-Swedish literature, literary theory and methodology on several levels, genre theory and literature & multilingualism.
