Symposium in Honor of Professor Marcus Nordlund

October 26-27, 2018

Professor Marcus Nordlund, who recently passed away after a battle with ALS, was a highly-respected and much-loved member of our faculty, and his loss is keenly felt by all who worked with or studied under him. In his memory, the Department of Languages and Literatures take great pleasure in announcing the inaugural Professor Marcus Nordlund Memorial Symposium, to be held on October 26-27, 2018, the aim of which is both to celebrate Marcus and to further the academic knowledge and excellence to which he devoted so much of his life.

We would like to invite anyone interested in attending to submit a presentation suggestion - a title and short abstract of between 200-300 words (which should include your name, affiliation and contact information) to petra.platen@sprak.gu.se by May 31, 2018. This type of participation would involve a 20 minute presentation plus 10 minutes for questions. Having said that, we also welcome suggestions for other session formats, such as work-in-progress presentations (10 mins + 5 mins for questions), panel discussions, readings or performances of relevant works. Please note that the preferred languages for presentations/sessions are English and Swedish (contact the organizers if there are any questions). Feedback and/or notification of acceptance will be provided by June 15, 2018.

You may also attend without presenting anything, in which case you should express your interest to Petra (at the relevant address above). The symposium will be loosely themed around Marcus’s fields of expertise and interest, such as (but not limited to) Shakespeare, digital humanities, bioculturalism, and ecocriticism, as well as his less academic and/or subject-based interests such as football and music.

Please note that at the time of this writing, the organisers are unsure as to whether or not a conference fee will be required in order to cover food and coffee breaks. Please do not let this dissuade you from participating: we are working to obtain as much funding as we can for the event, and so will inform potential participants of any fees as soon as we possibly can. (Any conference fees will be extremely low).

Please check the Travel/Accommodations page for further information about how we can help those who are traveling in to GU from outside of Gothenburg.
