The PhD fellow will take part in the Norwegian Research Council-funded project, “Made Abroad. Producing Norwegian World Literature in a Time of Rupture, 1900-1950”, led by Aina Nøding at the National Library of Norway. The project team includes Giuliano D’Amico at the Centre for Ibsen Studies. MAP uncovers the paths of Norwegian literature towards a world readership during the first dramatic half of the twentieth century. In this period, Norwegian authors faced a series of ruptures and challenging circumstances: two world wars following new forms of nationalism, changes to traditional cultural, religious, and linguistic hegemonies, as well as international copyright laws, the introduction of global mass media, and new methods of book production and distribution. Significantly rewriting Norwegian literary history, MAP also challenges our view of centre-periphery dynamics of literary exchange across borders, forging a highly innovative approach combining reception and translation studies, sociology of literature, book and cultural history.
This PhD fellowship will take part in work package 1 (Agents of exchange: Networks, middlemen and translations). The successful candidate’s dissertation project will contribute to the larger aims of MAP through its respective case study, focusing on translation.
