The knowledge of the North. Paper and digital approaches

Les savoirs du Nord. Approches papier et numériques

Published on Wednesday, December 11, 2019 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

Studies on the reception and transformation of social knowledge have gained importance in recent years, particularly in northern studies. The circulation of knowledge of the North, its cultural interference and mutual reception in Northern Europe and beyond have been the subject of new studies. For example, studies on the imaginations of the North, on the reception of the Scandinavian Middle Ages, but also on international networks of the reception of the Ibsen theatre, Scandinavian pedagogy, Nordic societal models, etc., can be mentioned. In the continuation of the workshops organized since 2016 around the mythemes of the North, we invite you to reflect on these evolutions with case studies or theoretical considerations.

Presentation

Studies on the reception and transformation of social knowledge have gained importance in recent years, particularly in northern studies. The circulation of knowledge of the North, its cultural interference and mutual reception in Northern Europe and beyond have been the subject of new studies. For example, studies on the imaginations of the North, on the reception of the Scandinavian Middle Ages, but also on international networks of the reception of the Ibsen theatre, Scandinavian pedagogy, Nordic societal models, etc., can be mentioned. This renewal seems to be linked to the transformations of the media landscape, particularly since the beginning of the 21st century. The means of the circulation of knowledge have changed profoundly, which invites reflection on the cultural conditions of knowledge and its history. However, these transformations have also had an influence on the scientific studies themselves: easier access to primary and secondary sources in digital form and new quantitative approaches have profoundly changed our working methods. In the continuation of the workshops organized since 2016 around the mythemes of the North, we invite you to reflect on these evolutions with case studies or theoretical considerations.
