NorLit 2011

Roskilde University

Universitetsvej 1, Postboks 260 


4000 Roskilde, DK

August 4, 2011 – August 6, 2011

The Nordic Association for Comparative Literature (NorLit) organizes every two years an international scholarly conference. The aim of NorLit is to develop the study of Comparative Literature through Nordic collaboration both in its own discipline and in Modern Language and Cultural studies.

NorLit 2011 seeks to stimulate interdisciplinary scholarly research of literature. The aim of the conference is both to focus on ‘literature and politics’ in a historical perspective and to examine the variety of political and social dimensions which to a large extent conditions contemporary literature.

There is no official conference language. It will be multi-lingual; some sessions will be in English, whereas others will be in Scandinavian languages, in French or German.

The conference venue is Roskilde University, Denmark.
