Facts and fiction in contemporary self-portrayals: The example Karl Ove Knausgård

Karl Ove Knausgård's six Autobiographical Works "My Fight" is one of the most acclaimed literary works of the last decade. During the lecture, Roger Edholm will discuss Knausgård's books in relation to contemporary self-producing literature and so-called "hybrid genres" that mix fact and fiction, or cross-fertilize the novel with autobiography. The lecture and subsequent discussion will also touch on the phenomenon of Knausgård in and outside the literature.
