IASS Conference on "Memory Culture in Scandinavian Studies"
| 18.12.2019 |
IASS
Time:2-4 August 2020
Place:Vilnius, Lithuania
Theme:Memory Culture in Scandinavian Studies

The International Association for Scandinavian Studies (IASS) will hold its next conference in Vilnius, Lithuania in August 2020.

The theme of the conference is "
Memory Culture in Scandinavian Studies". On IASS's website it reads among other things in relation to the theme:

The theme, time and location of the conference thus invite contributions that explore the intersections of history and culture. However, the title Memory Culture in Scandinavian studies covers a much broader field than that. Mnemosine is the Mother of all the muses, and munin is hugin’s inseparable companion: any study of culture is concerned with remembering in one way or another.

Scholars of Scandinavian Studies, engaging with topics such as cultural memory, collective memory, visual memory, (re)imagined memory, post memory, memory and place, the memory of things, ecological memory, digital memory, intertextual and Intermedial memory; those who work with theoretical approaches such as cognitive studies, trauma studies, genre studies, post-colonial and gender studies, Ecocriticism and posthuman studies; those who study early texts and deal with the problems of old norse literature or those who work with Scandinavian literary history, canon formation, the history of film and other media, with individual writers or the evolution of ideas, styles or language use, can all find their place in the agenda of the conference. And it still leaves space for more.

For more information and how to submit abstracts, please see IASS's website.

Deadline for submitting abstracts is 25 January 2020.
