Warburton, Timothy. "From AIDS to Assimilation: Male Homosexuality in Swedish Literature (1968-2013)." Doctor of Philosophy University of Washington, 2015.

Examines literary representations of male homosexuality in Swedish literature from 1968 to 2013 and focuses on the AIDS crisis as a crucial turning point in the literary discourse.  It shows how the literary representations often contest the broader political and sociological narratives of homosexuality in Sweden, and makes comparisons to similar developments in the US.
