dc.description.abstractThe overarching focus of the portfolio of publications I have submitted for the PhD by Research Publications is the treatment of place - in particular the mapping and problematisation of nation space - in Selma Lagerlofs and Hans Christian Andersen's novel- and travel-writing. Through a consideration of selected texts it is argued that manifestations of mobility, modernity and hybridity contribute centrally to the articulation of place in the works of both writers. It is further argued that the majority of the texts themselves display hybrid features, challenging the boundary between 'fictional' novel-writing and 'factual' travel-writing and combining a commitment to the 'real' with a recurring interest in the imagined.en
dc.description.abstractIn all, the submitted publications on Lagerlof and Andersen may be seen as contributions to the reassessment of two Scandinavian cultural figures of 'world literature' status, highlighting proto-modernist aspects of their oeuvre as well as some reductive patterns in their reception history.en
