    With a little help from my friends: Gender and intimacy in two friendship research projects2016In: LIR.journal, E-ISSN 2001-2489, no 7, p. 55-73Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Friendship is an undertheorized but increasingly important relationship in late modernity. In this article, the authors present findings from two ongoing research projects about friendship, gender and age in contemporary Sweden. They argue that discourses about gender and friendship are very relevant for how friendship is conceptualized both among men and women, but that the well-known ideas about men’s inability and women’s capacity to be close friends ought to be problematized further, from feminist perspectives. Furthermore, they discuss friendships practices, problematizing the frequent equation of friendship and “deep”, intimate dialogues. Intimate dialogues are important but may overshadow other friendship practices, like various kinds of support, but the authors show that support is negotiated in relation to ideas of ideal friendship, permeated by reciprocity and equality. The authors call for further feminist research about friendship, arguing that a feminist perspective can destabilize gendered dichotomies and make it possible to problematize power relations, vulnerabilities and exclusions in friendships.

    Adelaide Ristori. Världsstjärnan som ideal eller avskräckande exempel2015In: LIR.journal, E-ISSN 2001-2489, no 5, p. 75-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the famous Italian actress Adelaide Ristori (1822–1906) who toured all over the world during the second half of the 19th Century. Her celebrated performan- ces in Stockholm in 1879 and 1880 are witnessed in contem- porary memories, diaries, and biographies, but also in fiction during the 1880s by autors like Emilie Lundberg Elin Améen, Frans Hedberg, and Josefina Wettergrund. While the more biographical articles discuss Ristori’s performances and greatness as an artist, her function in the fictional stories is more symbolic and she is regarded as either a threat or an enticement.

    Diktens dynamiska sanning: Exemplet Agnes von Krusenstjerna2015In: LIR.journal, E-ISSN 2001-2489, no 5, p. 210-220Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article deals with the attention in recent biographical research on agency and strategy concerning the individual’s prospects to shape her public image in relation to existing opportunities and constraints. The approach invites new perspectives on biographical writing that focus on change and progression. The biography of the Swedish writer Agnes von Krusenstjerna serves as an example of how the theories can be applied. The article furthermore touches upon subjectivity in modern autobiographical literature, a subjectivity that reinforces the claims of conveying the truth, but also points toward an external reality of gender-related social structures.
