Short description: 

I am research fellow at the Centre for languages and literature in Lund, Sweden. At the moment, I am working on a project about endings in the realist novel (Stendhal, Balzac, Flaubert, Zola). I have published studies on the translation and reception of French literature in Sweden in the nineteenth century (see BREFS ), the "bovarysm" of Jules de Gaultier and the novels of Stendhal in the light of René Girard's model "le désir triangulaire" (doctoral thesis, 2003).


Actuellement je finis une étude sur différents aspects de la fin dans le roman réaliste français (Balzac, Stendhal, Flaubert, Zola). Un autre projet de recherche concerne la traduction et la reception des auteurs français en Suède au dix-neuivième siècle. Un troisième projet a le titre préliminaire "Vernacular and cosmopolitan dynamics in the French realist novel from Stendhal to Zola". Au centre de ce projet sera Paris, ville mondiale et cosmopolite de grande importance au cours du dix-neuvième siècle.
