Members of the research group: “Aesthetics of Protestantism in Scandinavia from the 19th to the 21st Century” announce an international conference in Strasbourg next year (21/03/2024 - 23/03/2024) and call for papers on "Vocation and Responsibility in Nordic Cultures".

The conference organizers call for papers which explore the themes of vocation and responsibility within the context of (the often implicit) Protestant legacy in Nordic culture in literature, film and other fields of art.

This conference is organized by members of the research group “Aesthetics of Protestantism in Scandinavia from the 19th to the 21st Century” (Université de Strasbourg/Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg).

All papers will be given in English and the conference will result in a volume published in the series “Aesthetics of Protestantism in Northern Europe”, edited by Joachim Grage (Freiburg), Thomas Mohnike (Strasbourg) and Lena Rohrbach (Basel).

Please send your proposals for papers, of max. 500 words, accompanied by a short bio by 16 October 2023 to:
