Abstract
The purpose of this essay is to analyse how the syndicalist newspaper Arbetaren (1922–) create literary value, as a deviated institution on the literary field in Sweden 2015–2016. Arbetaren is owned by the labour union Sveriges Arbetares Centralorganisation (SAC)

Through the study of Arbetaren between 2015 and to the newspaper's digital transformation during spring 2016, I have identified different themes and categories that feature in literary criticism, book tips and articles about books. These themes have the functions to create positive effects for literary works as well as authors. The most explicit theme is an overall theme that I called Resistance, which I divided in to two different sub themes called Feministic and Sexual Political Resistance and The Class Conflict as an Act of Value. An other theme that figure in the essay is the one I name Comradeship and Organisation as Producers of Literary Value. (Less)
