  1. 1. What Literature Can Make Us See : Poetry, Intermediality, Mental Imagery

    Author : Emma Tornborg; Lars Elleström; Heidrun Führer; Valerie Robillard; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Intermediality; mental imagery; poetry; Comparative literature; Litteraturvetenskap;

    Abstract : In this thesis I investigate what kind of mental imagery ekphrastic and pictorial poetry can evoke, how time is represented in this kind of poetry, and how readers experience the temporality it represents. Ekphrasis (a verbal representation of a static, visual, iconic representation) and pictorialism (a phenomenon that occurs when the reality of the fictive world, either psychological or physical, in the text is represented as image) are intermedial concepts: in various ways and to various degrees, ekphrastic and pictorial texts refer to and represent static, visual, iconic media such as painting, photography and sculpture.

  4. 4. The Art of Repeating Oneself : Migratory self-adaptation: media transformation and authorship in Persepolis and The Patience Stone

    Author : Nafiseh Mousavi; Liviu Lutas; Karin Kukkonen; Rossholm Anna Sofia; Moira Inghilleri; Jens Schröter; Jan-Noël Thon; Golnar Nabizadeh; Linnéuniversitetet; []

    Abstract : This thesis studies the process and products of migratory self-adaptation: the practice of a migrant author recreating their own work in a new medium, and the baggage it brings with itself. Migratory self-adaptation is developed and analyzed in this research through a comparative and processual analysis of two cases of adaptation: Persepolis, a French autobiographical graphic novel written and drawn by Marjane Satrapi, the Franco- Iranian artist and writer, later turned into an animation movie co-written and codirected by Satrapi herself; and The Patience Stone, a novel written in French by Atiq Rahimi, the Franco-Afghan author, which is adapted to a homonymous film in Dari- Persian, co-written and directed by the author.

    Abstract : This dissertation examines the coming of sound film in Sweden during the years 1928–1932, and the reception of mechanically recorded sounds both in the trade press and among audiences. The novelty of sound film opened up for a negotiation of the perception of sound and image, as it made visible the film medium’s technological construction, before this visibility was once more absorbed by the cinematic discourse.
