Modern Swedish Culture through Literature

This course gives students the opportunity to read a selected number of novels, short stories and poems written by modern Swedish authors between 1900 and 2015, some of them awarded the Nobel Prize, some of them bestsellers. At the same time, students will deepen their knowledge and understanding of the cultural and social traditions associated with these works. Five modern novels, a few short stories and one long poem will be studied from historical, literary and cultural perspectives. Issues of nationalism and ethnic minorities, gender and age, love and crime, urbanism and nature, secularism and religious belief will be discussed. Excursions to libraries and museums in Stockholm (such as the Nobel Museum and the Nobel Library, Junibacken and the Swedish Institute for Children’s Books) are included.
