Ongoing research

The PhD-project "Form, Feeling and Obligation"

The project examines aesthetic modes of address  in contemporary Scandinavian youth films.

Despite a steady production output and close film political attention of the past three decades, research on youth films have been scarce and tend to focus mainly on issues of social representation. Situating an analytical framework of close textual readings with an emphasis on style and narration in a contextual framework of relevant historical, political and industrial factors, the project seeks to identify, analyze and discuss aesthetic modes of address in contemporary Scandinavian youth films.
