Tobias Skiveren

PhD Student, Research Assistant

Tobias Skiveren

Tobias Skiveren is a fully funded PhD-fellow (5+3) based at the Scandinavian Department, Aarhus University. He has written extensively on (contemporary) Danish literature and is part of a current wave of scholars trying to transfer new materialist philosophy, ecocriticism, and affect theory to the field of Danish literary criticism.

His PhD-project "Carnal Poesis: Affect, Materiality, and (Post)Critical Reading" explores a recent trend in contemporary Danish literature that stages corporeality as a recalcitrant force not unreluctantly obeying human commands. Theoretically, the project positions itself in the cross-section between feminist new materialism, affect theory, and (post)critique, engaging the methodological implications that arise when adopting new theoretical movements on affect and materiality to the study of literature.

Morover, Tobias Skiveren is an editor of the scientific journal Passage, and works as a book reviewer for the national newspaper Jyllands-posten.
