CFP: The Avant-Gardes in the Nordic Countries 1925-1950: History, Culture and Aesthetics, 3-5 October 2013
Some years ago the growing scholarly interest in avant-garde studies led to the formation of The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies as a forum for attempts to map the cultural influence of the aesthetic avant-gardes in the Nordic countries (mainly Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden). Part of this project is the writing of a four volume Cultural History of the Avant-Gardes in the Nordic Countries. The first volume dealing with the years 1900-1925 will be published by Rodopi in spring 2013 (see attachment for a list of the around 30 contributions). The editors of this history now call for papers to a conference dealing with the history, culture, aesthetics, and politics of the avant-gardes in the Nordic countries in the period 1925-1950. Our hope is that most papers can be re-written and published as contributions to the second volume of the series, A Cultural History of the Avant-Gardes in the Nordic Countries 1925-1950.
