Om Netværket

Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier er et nordisk forskningsnetværk støttet af Nordforsk 2004-2007. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgarde Studier vil styrke og koordinere mindre og spredte nationale forskningsmiljøer, bidrage til at fremme udveksling af viden om forskelle og ligheder mellem de nordiske lande og gøre nordisk avantgardeforskning internationalt synlig. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier afholder en årlig konference. Netværket danner også ramme for udarbejdelsen af De nordiske avantgarders kulturhistorie i 4 bind og et elektronisk arkiv for dokumenter fra de nordiske avantgarder. Det nordiske forskningsnetværk er en videreudvikling af det danske forskningsnetværk ”Avantgardernes genkomst og aktualitet” støttet af Det humanistiske Forskningsråd 2001-2004. Under forberedelse er et Europæisk Netværk for Avantgarde og Modernisme Studier, EAM, hvis første konference afholdes i Ghent, Belgien, maj 2008.

About the Network

The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies is supported by Nordforsk 2004-2007. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies aims to support and coordinate small and dispersed national centres of research, help promote the exchange of knowledge about differences and similarities among the avant-garde currents and research in the Nordic countries, and make Nordic avant-garde research visible in a European and international context. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies has a yearly conference. Within the Network an editorial group is preparing a four-volume Cultural History of the Nordic Avant-Gardes and an electronic archive of documents from the Nordic avant-gardes. The Nordic network is an extension of the Danish research network ”The Return and Actuality of the Avant-Gardes” supported by the Danish Research Council 2001-2004. A European Network of Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies, EAM, is under preparation and will have its first conference in Ghent in May 2008.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The AVANT-GARDE and TECHNOLOGY

Deadline, January 15, 2007

Dear participants of the Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies,

We hope that you all have had an inspiring and revitalizing summer, and that your work after the conference last fall in Stockholm have been challenging and pro¬ductive. Now the time has come for us to ask you for a contribution to a planned volume in relation to the theme of the conference 2005, i.e. The Avant-Garde and Technology. The volume will be in English and will hopefully be published in late 2007 or in 2008 (the work with finding a publisher is in progress).

The contributions for the volume should explicitly address the problematics indi¬cated by the rubric of the conference, and it will be edited in accordance with this. We will ask you to first send an extended abstract (for those of you who contri¬buted to the conference, an edited version of the conference abstract will do), on approx. 500 words, plus references. The deadline is set to January 15th, 2007. Out of these abstracts we will outline the structure of the volume, which we aim in keeping as homogenous, yet challenging, as possible.

The final contributions should not exceed 15-20 pages in length (12p, sp. 1,5).

For those of you who did not attend the Conference, see website below for a list of abstracts and contributions:

Looking forward to reading a lot of interesting papers!

Best wishes,


Jonas Ingvarsson and Jesper Olsson


Swedish co-ordinators, editors
