Europe and Norden: Geographies and strategies

The main goal of this interdisciplinary seminar is to present contemporary research on Norden in a European and global context, and explore new trends in this strand of research. Different aspects of exchanges and image dichotomies between the north and the south in Europe will one central theme amply examined and discussed by scholars from the social sciences, the humanities and law. This is also a networking event co-hosted by two vital research environments on Nordic research. All participants (in or outside of academia) interested in discussing further cooperation in this field of research are invited to register (see below).
