Today things are different. Networks have been formed, research projects have been carried out, educational efforts have been made, and the field of Ecocriticism has been broadened.
We now think it is time to assess the place of Ecocriticism in Nordic research and educational contexts. We therefore invite you to a conference whose aim it is to take stock of and discuss Ecocritical achievements and approaches in the Nordic Countries.
