About Elisabeth Bladh

  • Phone/office hour: by appointment


I completed my PhD, a study on French Bible Translations, in 2003 with a national research school in Modern Languages. A few months later, I worked as a Project Assistant on the Strindberg project (Stockholm University), where I edited two scientific French texts, Sylva Sylvarum and Femte Brevet (The fifth letter), by Strindberg. From August 2004-2008, I was Assistant Lecturer, and later Lecturer, in French at The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados, where I taught Advanced French Language, Business French and Translation (English-French). In 2008, I received a grant from the Ahlström and Terserus Foundation which gave me the opportunity to develop my project “French-Caribbean Literature in Swedish Translation” at the Stockholm University over an 18 month period.
In August 2009, I was appointed Senior Lecturer of French at the Department of Languages and Literatures, University of Gothenburg. I currently teach courses in Phonetics, Culture, Grammar, French Language, Translation and Linguistics. I also supervise BA and MA theses in linguistics and translation. Since June 2009, I have been Editor for the French section of the journal Moderna Språk.


My current research focuses on Swedish translations of Francophone literature. I am above all interested in learning how foreign literature travels on an international market, but I am also exploring how translators deal with phenomena that do not have any correspondence to the target culture, such as dialect and realia. Starting from January 2012, I hold a post-doc position as a Research Fellow of the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities with the project: "Focusing on the perifery - Francophone literature in Swedish translation during the 20th century".
