Håkansson’s dissertation concerns the relation between literature and philosophy within the thought of the french philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty. The dissertation examines how literature allows for Merleau-Ponty to think the connection between the sensible world and the intellectual world. Håkansson focuses especially on the reading of Valéry, Proust and Stendhal, as it is expressed by Merleau-Ponty in his unpublished course notes for Le problème de la parole, and the recently published course notes for L’usage littéraire du langage.

Håkansson was a visiting scholar at the Ecole Normale Supérieur in Paris 2012, during which time she transcribed the notes for the course Le problème de la parole. She works together with Franck Robert and Emmanuel de Saint Aubert on a publication of this material.
