Oscar von Seth is a PhD student in Comparative Literature at Södertörn University. His main academic interest area is at the intersection of literature and queer theory. He is also interested in gender and postcolonial theory, critical animal studies and intersectionality.
Oscar’s PhD project concerns the authorship of Nobel Laureate Hermann Hesse.

Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) is the most translated German-language author ever. His novels have been sold in more than 120 million copies all over the world. In the majority of his novels, the narratives revolve around a male protagonist who comes to know himself through identification with another man. This “other” is usually an enigmatic, alluring and rebellious character who comes into the protagonist’s life and befriends him. Through these male friendships processes of identification are evoked in which male homosocial desire can be observed.

The hypothesis of Oscar’s doctoral thesis is that the male homosocial bonds in Hesse’s writings can be read as homoerotic. The purpose of the study is twofold. First, by doing queer readings of the novels Peter Camenzind (1904), Demian (1919) and Der Steppenwolf (1927), the study aims to highlight indications or expressions of queerness, heterosexual ambivalences and male homosocial desire within Hesse’s authorship. Second, by including the topic of otherness in the dissertation’s queer-theoretical framework, the study intends to investigate how the norm-breaking and queer characteristics of Hesse’s literature are interlinked with concepts of the Other.

Drawing on queer theoretical works such as Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s writings on male homosocial desire, as well as a selection of contemporary works within masculinity studies on the concept of the “bromance”, this PhD-project’s queer ambition stands out within the research field on Hermann Hesse, whose literary works haven’t been approached queerly until now.
In this lecture, Oscar will present his research on Hermann Hesse and talk about the queer reading practice. Additionally, he will present about how his own creative writing has been influenced by queer theory, in particular his debut novel Snö som föll i fjol (2017).
