In the past two years, neighbourly interactions have become a major challenge for countries, territories, and peoples. In the Nordic states as well as globally, the Covid-19 pandemic has amplified tendencies of bordering and political or social disengagement with the surrounding world. At the same time, efforts to curb the pandemic have given rise to new forms of virtual communication. The Fifth Nordic Challenges Conference, organised by the ReNEW university hub, follows current developments and sheds light on the topic of Nordic neighbourhoods from various perspectives within the humanities and social sciences.
The Fifth Nordic Challenges Conference, ‘Nordic Neighbourhoods: Affinity and Distinction in the Baltic Sea Region and Beyond’ will take place from 1st - 2nd June 2022 at Södertörn University, Stockholm. Do you have a proposal for a panel with conference papers, for a book panel, a roundtable or another event? Does it address themes and challenges in the Nordic countries – either to do with one of the ReNEW Hub’s six research clusters or with one of the other themes of the conference? Then please go to the conference website to find out more:
Please note that the deadline for panel proposals is 8th January 2022, 23:59 CET.
