Alfred Nobels allé 7

My research interests include literary multilingualism, intermediality, German and Swedish postwar literature and exile literature. I also teach the Bachelor-level in Litteraturvetenskap (Literary Studies) at Södertörn University. 

In the spring semester 2017 I taught the honors course "The Making of Multicultural Sweden" as visiting Fulbright Hildeman Fellow at Scandinavian Studies, University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Between 2012-2016 I worked as senior research officer in the research program "Time, Memory and Representation. A Multidisciplinary Program on Transformations in Historical Consciousness". See homepage histcon.se for further info.

In May 2014 I defended my dissertation Motståndets akustik. Språk och (o)ljud hos Peter Weiss 1946–1960. [The Acoustics of Resistance. Language and Noise in Peter Weiss 1946– 1960]. It investigates Peter Weisss return to German as literary language. Intermedial aspects connected to the authors displaced linguistic position against the backdrop of the Swedish literary avantgarde in the 1940s, as well as public literary discussions in postwar Germany, are of particular interest in the study. More info available at ellerströms.se.

I am a member of the steering committe of the research network  DINO – Diversity in Nordic Literature, as well as the scientific advisory board of the journal Baltic Worlds.
