Documentation, research and mediation of jazz in the Nordic countries

The 11th Nordic Jazz Conference

The 11th Nordic Jazz Conference will be held in Oslo on 22 and 23 October 2015. It is an opportunity to exchange knowledge about the research and documentation of jazz in the Nordic countries. The privilege of hosting the conference rotates among the national archives of the Nordic countries. The first conference was held in Stockholm in 1980, and this year the National Library of Norway plays host.

The 2015 conference will focus on the documentation, research and mediation of jazz within the Nordic countries. We are especially looking for contributions on Jazz, archives and cultural heritage, Jazz history works and Jazz in the media.

We are also looking for project presentations on other themes related to jazz in the Nordic countries. We are keen to include a wide range of topics and participants, and we invite students, researchers, writers, journalists, collectors and others to submit proposals for presentations.

We request a short description of what you plan to present in your talk.
Please submit the description to finn.kramer-johansen@nb.no by 1 June 2015.

The conference languages will be Scandinavian and English. We plan to publish the conference presentations.

The National Library of Norway, Oslo.
