Abstract [en]

By tradition in Swedish higher education, introductory or intermediate courses in the Swedish language include one or two modules that focus on textual analysis. The content of such modules and their relation to the relevant strands of research in ten Swedish universities are the subject of this article. The relevant research field is in this case the dynamic and multi-faceted ‘Text studies’ field, which encompasses different strands of discourse analysis, text linguistics, literary stylistics, as well as research on text comprehensibility and ethnographic and sociocultural perspectives on written discourse and literacy. The results of the survey show both similarities and discrepancies between the ‘textual interests’ within education and research. In education, a span of interests is discerned, which generally has some counterparts in the ‘Text studies’ field, although it does not mirror the current trends in ‘Text studies’, where critical approaches and ethnographic perspectives have gained increased attention. Instead, the main textual interest within the courses can be conceptualized as descriptive and functional: typical analysis aims at describing a text or a text group (genre) and relating the characteristic features in relation to its function. This shift in interest may, however, lead to a focus more on method than on the results of the analysis; this, in turn, has as the consequence that the university course modules cannot provide sufficient coverage of the models used in scholarly approaches.
