The many productions of Tove Jansson – “Tove Jansson Companion”

Projekt: Forskningsprojekt


Beskrivning (abstrakt)

The main goal of the project is to produce a general introduction to Jansson’s multifaceted works: “Tove Jansson Companion” (working title). Its emphases are on the ways of narration, thematizations of the self and others, critical contextual questions, as well as the visual and audio-visual facet of Jansson.

The intention is to combine the results of previous research to novel perspectives and present our thoughts in an accessible yet academically grounded fashion. The project aims to show the depth of Jansson’s works and solidify her international status as a diverse author-artist – even when that entails reading the works against the grain.
