CALL FOR PAPERS – SCANDINAVIAN (NORDIC)
LITERATURES AND CULTURE
The Literary Encyclopedia at www.litencyc.com is looking for qualified writers to enhance its
coverage of Scandinavian (Nordic) Literatures and Culture. The list below is not comprehensive or
final, and new proposals of writers/ works/context essays that are not currently listed in our
database are also welcome. However, we will prioritize articles on writers and works frequently
studied in university courses, and those that are highly topical and well-known.
In addition to publishing articles on canonical and much-taught literary works, the Encyclopedia is
also interested in making available information about important writers and works that are often
neglected, and in publishing articles about discrete historical events which are relevant to literary
understanding. It also seeks to broaden its scope to include more research-oriented articles with a
pedagogic function, such as 'Critical issues in title' or 'Critical readings of author/ title'. If you are
interested in contributing such an essay, please contact the relevant volume editor or the managing
editor.
All offers of contribution should come accompanied by an up-to-date CV and, in the case of doctoral
students who wish to offer a contribution, also a short writing sample. The overwhelming majority
(about 90%) of our contributors are academic scholars, while the remaining percentage is made up
of highly endorsed doctoral students and independent researchers.
We hope that you will wish to join us in this enterprise. If you wish to contribute, please contact the
general volume editor, Dr Jakob Stougaard-Nielsen (j.stougaard-nielsen@ucl.ac.uk). You can also
contact the managing editor, Dr Cristina Sandru (cristinasandru@litencyc.com), for any other
matters.
