The North in Francophone literatures – Interactions between Francophone and Scandinavian literary spaces

In this context, France, Canada and Sweden are the geographical areas from which the North will be explored. Which literary discourses on the North can be perceived in these countries ? What images of the North are conveyed by cultural and literary authorities ? In Sweden, what are the interactions in particular with French-speaking literature ? Which relations and issues can be described between the representations of the North created inside and outside the Nordic regions ? The research contributions will show how representations of the North are dealt with, conceived, transformed, assimilated, enhanced or even deconstructed in French-speaking literatures.
