    "The Fictive Force of Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father"2009In: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 3-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Barack Obama's memoir Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance (1995) has been an enormous public success since it was re-issued in 2004. Obama's narrative is a powerfully crafted account of a personal quest that rhetorically transverses over geographical boundaries and literary genres. What interests me about this work is how it poetically plaits personal history with cultural myth, unbolting fact with imagination. Textually contiguous with other African American stories of self-representation and liberation, Dreams from My Father strikes me as a potent narrative of self-inscription. To put it in its simplest performative expression, the narrator of this book asks "who am I" and in doing so writes itself into place, not as an identity found but as the subject in writing.

    Manifestations of Manhood: Constructing Masculinity in Gloria Naylor's The Men of Brewster Place2009In: American Studies in Scandinavia, ISSN 0044-8060, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 61-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores representations of African American inert and masculinities in Gloria Naylor's 1998 novel The Men of Brewster Place, and compares them to those in The Women of Brewster Place (1982). The analysis places the more recent novel in the context of literary and cultural debates about black women's agency and racial solidarity, and in the socio-historical contexts of the civil rights movement and the Million Man March. Because the novel incorporates competing and conflicting discourses on African American masculinity, Naylors representations of men in The Men of Brewster Place are wrought with ambivalence, caught between a critical problematization of masculine and masculinist ideals, and are-inscription of those ideals.
