Framing excess in a Swedish newspaper group
Elena Raviola

5 Just like any other business or a special case? Framing excess in a Swedish newspaper group Elena Raviola Few have missed the fact that the daily press is in crisis. Honestly, there has been so much nagging about it in the daily press that many readers have ended their subscriptions just to avoid reading more complaints about it. (Aagård, 2015: 5)1 Dramatic headlines about the more or less imminent death of the traditional daily press have, in fact, filled pages of newspapers, magazines, and even scientific journals. Since Philip Meyer (2004) predicted in The

Swedish publisher, filmberättelser (‘film stories’ or ‘film narratives’), is a more apt description, a rubric that better captures their genre-defying qualities (cf. the ciné-romans of Marguerite Duras or Alain Robbe-Grillet). Rather than discussing thematic features (which, in principle, do not differ from the corresponding films), I will focus on the screenplays’ specifically literary aspects. My aim is, quite simply, to show that Bergman’s film scripts, although written for the screen, are

The ambivalence of queer visibility in audio- visual archives
Dagmar Brunow

 175 10 NAMING, SHAMING, FRAMING? The ambivalence of queer visibility in audio-​visual archives* Dag m ar  Brunow T his chapter looks at the dynamics of visibility and vulnerability in audio-​ visual heritage. It analyses how film archives in Sweden and the UK, following their diversity policies, address and mobilise the notion of queer, recognising and making visible queer lives, history and cinema, and how they negotiate the risks of increased visibility. In this approach, the archive is positioned as an object of analysis, shifting the focus on the archive

As the first woman in Sweden to achieve an archaeological doctorate, she had to navigate within a male-oriented discipline, which was developing its professional identity. Striving to earn her

complex of problems, the individual problems also came to be regarded as survival issues. 1 Two influential works from this period are Fairfield Osborn’s Our Plundered Planet and William Vogt’s Road to Survival . Both were published in the United States in 1948 and became international bestsellers. In the spring of 1949, the Swedish translation of Osborn’s work was marketed as an ‘unusual book about a terrible threat to humanity’. The ad asked whether humanity was ‘undermining the foundations of its

Notes on the director’s ‘worth in the market’

Ingmar Bergman has often been described as the quintessential European auteur, implicitly dissociated from the commercial film industry in which he worked for substantial periods during his career. Even in Sweden’s most commonly referenced work on the history of its national cinema, this form of committed historiography is promoted without a hint of critical reflection. Indeed, its author goes so far as to suggest that following the success of Smiles of a Summer Night ( Sommarnattens leende , 1955

Few Scandinavian artists, among them Ibsen, Strindberg, and Sibelius, have achieved an international renown as great as that of Ingmar Bergman. Victor Sjöström, Mauritz Stiller, and to a lesser degree Georg af Klercker established Sweden in the forefront of the silent cinema, but during an era without television, without air travel, and when films were released only in the ‘civilized’ countries of Western Europe and North America. Admittedly, both Sjöström and Stiller had the courage to take up

The idea that Ingmar Bergman was a bourgeois film director was almost a truism in the Swedish cultural debates of the 1960s and 1970s. Maria Bergom Larsson summarized the contemporary view in the following quotation from her influential book Ingmar Bergman and Society of 1978: ‘He is ideologically tied to a traditional puritan Protestantism and a humanism with deep roots in Western bourgeois culture.’ 1 Although Bergman himself had time and again stated in personal interviews that he was a social
