    Encountering the Other?: Adaptation and Cultural Translation in Matt Reeves's Vampire Movie Let Me In2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The figure of the vampire is a peculiarly transnational phenomenon as it moves, sometimes with supernatural speed, between different countries, parts of the world, and media. One intriguing recent example is the English translation and film adaptations of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Swedish bestselling novel Låt den rätte komma in [Let the Right One In] (2004). It was translated into English in 2007, and Thomas Alfredson directed a Swedish film based on the novel – with the screenplay written by Lindqvist – that was first screened in 2008. This film reached an international audience to great acclaim. In 2010, Matt Reeves’s American remake of the film was released under the title Let Me In. Reeves’s film is set in Los Alamos in a 1980s US instead of in Swedish Blackeberg, a Stockholm suburb, in the same period. In this paper, I want to examine how the cultural setting is translated from the Swedish context to the American one and compare how the 1980s is represented in the Swedish and the American films. Moreover, I will argue that there are some significant changes, particularly regarding gender and sex, in the central figure of the vampire as it is adapted from novel to film, and from Swedish film to American film. I will relate both the cultural representation of the setting and the changes in the figure of the vampire to the “encounter with the other,” to the familiar and the unfamiliar. To what extent does the American film adaptation retain uncanny and horror elements that can be found in the Swedish adaptation and/or the novel? What could be the reasons for omissions and changes?

    Memory, Haunting, Discourse2005Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Memory, Haunting, Discourse brings together the work of scholars from ten countries. In twenty articles, these scholars investigate various relationships between memory and haunting, memory and different discourses, and discourses and haunting, in most cases with a focus on particular artefacts, or particular means of expression: fiction, autobiography, poetry, experimental and popular film, videotaped interviews, and artworks, such as photography, paintings, and installations.The anthology is divided into three sections. The first section explores memory as a phenomenon in art and philosophy, the second how memory functions in particular cultural contexts, while the third section addressess specific issues, often involving memory and trauma, that concern gender, race, ethnicity, nationality and age in construction of identity, and that are related to the impact of and resistance to dominant, oppressive discourses

    Space, Haunting, Discourse2008Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This anthology reflects the current interest in the concept of space as a revitalising approach to literary, social, mental, political and discursive phenomena. The contributions, which examine novels, films, art, and cultures, invite the reader to consider the function of space in human constructions as symbolic representation, analytical tool, discursive strategy and haunting effect. In a wider context they demonstrate the extent to which spatiality impacts on our lives and has ethical, political, historical and cultural implications.The contributors represent a wide range of disciplines in the Humanties: Literature, Photography, Art, Human Geography, Ethnic Studies, and Cultural Studies.Maria Holmgren Troy and Elisabeth Wennö are Associate Professors in English Literature at Karlstad University, Sweden

    La interacción amorosa entre hombre y mujer en El adulterio como vocación y otros cuentos: Un estudio sobre las funciones de los personajes en la narrativa breve de Juan José Millás2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to determine the degree of uniformity in the narrative roles that male and female characters carry out in the relationships in El adulterio como vocacion y otros cuentos (2012), a collection of six short stories written by the Spanish author and journalist Juan José Millás. The analysis is based on the theory of narrative roles, developed by the French literary scholar Claude Bremond in Logique du récit (1973). The analysis concludes that even though some recurrences can be discerned, the two sexes do not have fixed roles throughout the stories. In the first three stories the women tend to be degraders and beneficiaries, while the men shoulder the role of a victim. In the last two stories of the book this situation is reversed. The fourth story differs somewhat from the rest, since both man and woman are mainly beneficiaries.
