About Khashayar Naderehvandi

I'm working on a PhD thesis in Artistic Practices with special focus on literary composition. I hold a BA in philosophy and an MFA in literary composition (it's sort of like creative writing, but at the same time it's nothing like it, to be honest). But this is the thing: My current affairs in academia, as proper research, don't come by way of academic work, but rather by way of literary work. My first book, Om månen alls syntes, was published in 2011 and I've been writing a bunch of things ever since: some books - both poetry and prose, a couple of short stories for the radio, minor texts for journals and whatnot. I review books for Kulturnytt, broadcast by the Swedish National Public Radio. However, that's not happening very often any longer. Another thing I used to do extensively up until quite recently is teaching. Oh, how I used to love teaching! But that’s not happening much anymore either. See, all I want to do now - all I need to do - is finishing my dissertation and then pulling my act together so I can write a really weird and strange, yet uncannily readable novel, that baffles the readership, making myself rich as dirt in the process :)

Now, the starting point of the dissertation itself is the thought of a possibility that resides within the impossibility of uttering something from across an abyss of epistemic divide, and making it so, that it can be experienced, or, in some other sense, understood. The dissertation is kind of an attempt to be thinking of "testimony" as a piece of language that consists of language in its fullest sense, and as something that “comes across”, not by coming across, as it were, but rather by transforming the context in which the testimony is uttered, in such a way, so that what was previously beyond comprehension, suddenly can be shared (and such, that, what was previously impossible to utter, nevertheless starts to take form). Or conversely: The dissertation attempts to think of the poetic practice as the only real way to truly bear witness. Or perhaps, with some more precision, something like this: The dissertation is itself a testimony, using the fullest width of language, in order to bear witness to how migration, racism, homelessness, the loss of language, and more, affect one's possibility of expressing love. And at the same time, the whole thing is an analysis of the premises for such utterances (given these circumstances).
