A new ecocritical network for Scandinavian studies is now in its foundation phase. Ecocriticism has grown rapidly in the past two decades and constitutes today a large and diverse field. Many scholars within Scandinavian studies are conducting high-quality research from an ecocritical perspective. Yet most of these scholars work unconnected from each other and currently little communication about research, teaching and publications is taking place. There is, however, a huge potential for cooperation in this area of research, and being informed about each others’ work, as well as developing and discussing ideas together would be very advantageous for everybody involved in this field.
