Construire le Nord à travers la catabase (Olaus Magnus, Rudbeck le jeune, Linné)

2019 (French)In: Voyages illustrés aux pays froids (XVIe-XIXe siécle) / [ed] Gilles Bertrand, Daniel Chartier, Alain Guyot, Marie Mossé, Anne Spica, Clermont Ferrand: Presses universitaires Blaise Pascale (Université de Clermont-Ferrand), 2019, p. 151-165Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This article 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" (1555), Rudbeck the Younger's "Nora Samoland eller det upplyste Lapland" (1695) and Carl von Linnés' "Lapplandsresan" (1732). we will see how these 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 identitairian implications of this construction of the North through the figure of the catabasis.
