Abstract [en]

Research Outline

This chapter constitute the third untimely academic novella in a trilogy of biographical narratives about a woman’s life, writing and desire to obtain a professor’s chair in the beginning of the twenty-first century, in Sweden. The diversity of forms used in creating as set of interwoven stories is inspired by poststructuralist and postcolonial feminist theory and literary fiction and by writing methodologies such as diary writing, memory work and poetic writing. The novella engages in some of the key aspects of Plummer’s ideas about a critical humanism with emphasis on the contribution from the fictional novella to explore complex relations of power. Writing water a story about resistance that shows how family, society and academia interact in the making of knowledge.
