New book on Culture, Health, and Religion in Sweden

News: Jan 09, 2015

The anthology Culture, Health, and Religion at the Millennium presents interpretations of Swedish culture, health, politics, and religion today, as the image of Sweden is being transformed from the well-functioning but existentially bland economic wonder to a more pluralistic, fragmented, and gloomy society.

The changing situation of contemporary Sweden means that the time is ripe to make a self-critical appraisal of the state of Sweden today. In six chapters, renowned Swedish scholars from film studies, literary studies, political science, religious studies, and theology give their interpretations of sin, culture, health, politics, and religion in contemporary Sweden, with a particular focus upon its cultural representation in popular media.

This book, published by Palgrave Macmillan and co-authored by reasearchers from the interdisciplinary program Religion, culture and health at Gothenburg university, will serve as a background of much of the contemporary boom of Swedish fiction, both in popular literature as well as on the silver screen.

Read more about the book on the website of Palgrave Macmillan.
