The Helsinki Literature and the City Network provides an international network for scholars studying the city in literature. The network is primarily aimed at doctoral students and post-doc researchers, but anyone working in the field is welcome to join.
The main aims of the HLCN are to disseminate information related to contemporary research on the city in literature (new articles or monographs, cfp’s, upcoming conferences…), and to offer a forum through which people interested in the city in literature can meet. The network will organize meetings twice a year in Helsinki for members residing in Finland or passing through, and one international symposium biannually. The first meeting of the network is scheduled for Spring 2012, and the first international symposium is scheduled for Summer 2013.
