In the last decades of the nineteenth century Scandinavian literature emerged as a power to be reckoned with in European and world literature. How can we explain the rise of such a phenomenon from the periphery? How was the so-called "Modern Breakthrough" received abroad? And what were some of the effects of this wave of literature and drama?

The conference will sum up major results of the research project SCANMO, funded by The Norwegian Research Council. Invited speakers will present research on related topics and offer international perspectives on Scandinavia's "Modern Breakthrough".

The conference is open to all and no registration is required.
