The twelve articles collected in this volume stem from the two-day interdisciplinary international conference wich took place in Rome in October 2016. The conference brought together scholars from the disciplines of History, Philosophy, Scandinavian Studies, Literary Studies and Translation Studies. Its aim was to advance our understanding of how Scandinavian literature was translated and received in Italy and Germany form the end of the First World War to the end of the Second, as well as provide new and important theoretical and methodological frameworks and historical background for analyzing translation flows from the Scandinavian languages into Italian and Germany.
