"Sven Anders Johansson responds to his critics about the child and ungdomslitteraturen"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"How exciting would it be with literature if all the books wanted to teach, and set reality to the right?"
"thankfully, it is not really so, literature works, vuxenlitteraturen. In the contemporary child - and ungdomslitteraturen there are, however, quite often such a didactic trait: a willingness to present role models, to challenge the norms and deliver pictures of how everything should be. It is certainly understandable and often commendable, but commendable also has a downside."
"nUngefär as I said in a short reply, in a panel discussion in the tv program Babylon a week ago. Exaggerated I? Very possible."
"Patrik Lundberg in Expressen and Lotta Olsson in Today's News went in all the cases in the ceiling: a political governance of children's literature does not exist! (Expressen, march 5, DN 9 march.) It turned up the tone (Olsson said to be ”furious”) suggests almost the opposite."
"in Order to stick with the example I gave in Babylon, so there is a tendency to litteraturundervisningen today are increasingly harder to the school's core values."
"It is a form of governance that it is easy to sympathize with, but it does not prevent that it is necessary to also see its downsides, not least when the evidence suggests that the reading among teens decreases. This is less about politics than tend to instrumentalize literature, and on an underlying notion of literature as a force for good."
"nRisken with this approach is not just that some are socially conditioned medelklassvärderingar interface, but also that it ultimately leads to a beskäftigt idealiserande literature. To read books to last a bit like going to the dentist: something your parents want you to do."
"There are debates that are idédrivna and so there are debates that most is about revirbevakning and personal antipathy. This, unfortunately, is the latter kind."
"Patrik Lundberg is so occupied by my person, and my name bothers him. (A year ago I began to use my middle name in my professional capacity, all in order to avoid confusion with a fellow named the same thing. I get it, Patrik? Is the interest high among the Swedish newspaper Expressen's readers?)"
"the night Lundberg have opinions on what humanistic research should be about, and suggests that the state should not fund it, is more interesting. It reminds the not-so-little about the populist attacks on the humanities – in particular, gender studies and postcolonial theory – which has been expressed from the högerhåll lately."
"The debate I would be happy, but then it takes more than cheap innuendo."
