The conference Taking place – Moving borders in Nordic literatures (Kautokeino)

The conference Taking place – Moving borders in Nordic literatures focus on topics related to indigenous literature, critique concerning national canons, concepts of borders and transgression of borders, themes of place, space and relocation in literature. Even though literature is the main focus of this conference other media that borders to literature, such as film and music, are also of interest, especially if treated as an expression of intermediality.
