Olaus Magnus, Rudbeck, Linné – construire le nord à travers la catabase
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Languages, Department of Modern Languages, Romance Languages.
2017 (French)In: Voyages illustrés aux pays froids, Pont-à-Mousson, 2017Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [fr]

Cette présentation interroge le mouvement descendant dans la construction textuelle et visuelle du Grand Nord dans trois voyages illustrés suédois : Olaus Magnus, Historia om de nordiska folken (Histoire des peuples nordiques), 1555 ; Olof Rudbeck le jeune, Nora Samolad eller det upplyste Lapland (Le nord du pays same ou la Laponie éclairée), 1695 ; et Carl von Linné, Lapplandsresan (Le voyage en Laponie), 1732. Nous verrons comment les illustrations et les textes utilisent l’imaginaire de la catabase pour construire une nordicité paradoxale, tiraillée entre ascendance et descendance, entre primitivisme païen et grandeur héroïque, et nous nous demanderons quels en sont les enjeux esthétiques et symboliques aussi bien que politiques et identitaires.

Abstract [en]

This  presentation examines what appears to be a downward movement in the textual and visual construction of the north in three illustrated Swedish travelogues: Olaus Magnus’, Historia om de nordiska folken (History of the Nordic People), 1555; Olof Rudbeck the Younger’s Nora Samolad eller det upplyste Lapland (North Sami Land or the Enlightened Lapland), 1695; and Carl von Linné’s, Lapplandsresan (The Voyage to Lapland), 1732. We will see how the travelers use an imaginary of the catabasis to construct a paradoxical « nordicity », torn between ascendance and descent, between pagan primitivism and heroic greatness, and we will ultimately interrogate the aesthetic and symbolic, as well as political and identitarian implications of this construction of the north through the figure of the catabasis.
