Call for papers – Scandinavian Languages and Literatures World Wide – Prospects and Challenges

Lund, May 16-18, 2019

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31/01/2019

Conference theme

Scandinavian languages and literatures present a wide array of perspectives. Though they exist first and foremost in Scandinavia, they are not studied solely in Scandinavia (or in the Nordic Countries) but in many other places in the world. What linguistic choices are made in the literature? What sort of linguistic impact does the literature have? Translations are of special interest to researchers when seen from various perspectives because being able to transform a text, regardless of whether it is fiction or non-fiction, and not just from one language to another but from one culture to another, is a constant challenge. These exciting questions in terms of prospects and challenges may, of course, also be found in other areas of research, as for example, sociology of literature, sociology of language, discourse analysis, mediatization and intermediality.
