Biography

Anette Svensson holds a PhD in English literature and is Associate Professor in The Teaching and Learning of Literature. She is, since the autumn of 2013, employed as university lecturer at The School of Education and Communication. Before that, she held a postdoctoral position within the research area Literature Teaching and Learning at Umeå university for two years (2011-2013). She completed her PhD in Mars 2010 in English with a literary approach. She also has a teaching degree in English and Swedish and has worked as an upper secondary teacher in the state-governed school system including adult education and in an independent adult education college.

Research

Anette Svensson’s current research takes two closely related directions. In the research project “Fiction and Education in the New Media Ecology,” which is funded by the Swedish Research Council during the 2014-2016 and where Stefan Lundström at Luleå University of Technology is the leader of the project, the media habits of Swedish youth are explored with a particular focus on various aspects of learning. The results are then related to the use of literary texts at the upper secondary level education.

The project is closely related to, and an extension of, the project Literary Values and Literature Education, which aims to combine the teacher-training programme with the teaching practices that take place in upper secondary schools. The project’s main focus is the literary texts and media forms that are used at the upper secondary level education in literature. This project will be connected to previous studies focussing on the media habits of Swedish youths and the text forms and media forms active teachers at upper secondary school use when teaching literature.

Anette’s dissertation with the title A Translation of Worlds: Aspects of Cultural Translation in Australian Migration Literature focuses on how cultural phenomena are translated from a source to a target culture in five Australian novels that all are about migration processes. The concept cultural translation is used as an analytical tool to emphasise the processes that transfer these cultural phenomena and is defined as making something culturally unfamiliar familiar to someone.
