This is a reminder that the International Association of Scandinavian Studies (IASS) will hold its thirty-first conference from 9 to 13 August 2016 in Groningen, the Netherlands. It will be hosted by the Scandinavian Studies section of the Department of European Languages and Cultures (ELC). The theme of the conference is: Transition between ‘the Nordic countries’ and ‘Europe’. Proposals for 20 minute lectures in the form of abstracts (approx. 250-300 words) can be submitted on our website (www.rug.nl/let/iass-submission-form) until 15 January 2015. Should you have any questions regarding proposed speaking topics or practical matters, please do not hesitate to contact the organizing committee on firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see many of you in Groningen next summer!
