Argument

The ‘Arthur between North and South’ conference will be held at the Paris-Sorbonne University on 6-8 December 2016. As the second conference organised by the Nordic Branch of the International Arthurian Society, it will focus on recent research on the translations of the Arthurian material into Nordic languages (Old Norse, Old Swedish, Old Danish) during the Middle Ages, as well as on literary contact between the medieval North and Continental Europe.

The Arthurian tradition has enjoyed a large diffusion in Medieval Europe, including in Scandinavia where works originally written in French, German or other vernacular languages were translated and new works inspired by those were composed during the Middle Ages. Therefore, we gladly welcome papers with a comparative angle relevant to Scandinavia, as well as those concerning translations practice and cultural transfers between medieval North and Continental Europe.

We also welcome papers centred on manuscript tradition and material transmission towards the North, cultural and historical context of production, gender- and identity related issues among other themes.
