What’s On

CoScan AGM in Gothenburg:

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, CoScan’s conference and AGM, planned for Gothenburg in April 2020, has unfortunately had to be cancelled.  We will be re-scheduling the AGM for later in the year. Depending on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic at that time, the AGM may have to be a virtual , rather than a physical, meeting but we will contact all member societies and members with further details in due course.

Our members’ activities are listed below:

CoScan on Facebook

CoScan member societies in Sweden and the United Kingdom were invited to join this excellent talk. Norvik Press have recently published a number of recent translations of Lagerlöf's work.Paul Bindiing, the literary critic, novelist and renowned expert in Scandinavian literature, gave the Anglo-Swedish Society an engaging and highly informative talk via Zoom on the work of Selma Lagerlöf (1858-1940). He describes her as a truly great writer - profound, original and virtuous. She was the first woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and to become a member of the Swedish Academy.

A reminder not to miss 'CHARLOTTA BUXTON – THE COUNTRY THAT EATS ITSELF'.

30 July 2020 (17:00 - 18:00)
Zoom, 5 Upper Montagu Street

Journalist Charlotta Buxton will describe what she sees as three British legends and historical events that have informed both Brexit and the British response to Covid-19. From a mostly forgotten myth that speaks of Britain’s founding father to two great fires and an intrepid scientist’s attempt to prove everyone else wrong – these stories can shine a new light on the recent turbulence in the UK.
