The organisers of the Nordic Research Network 2012 at the University of Edinburgh are very pleased to announce the draft conference programme and registration information. These details can be found on the NRN 2012 section of this website.
We are also delighted to announce that, in connection with the NRN, a discussion event will be held at the Scottish Parliament on the evening of Friday 24 February, kindly hosted by Alison Johnstone MSP and with refreshments sponsored by the Royal Norwegian Consulate General. This extra event, entitled 'Building Cabins and Building Character: Using the Outdoors in Britain and Norway' will feature Ellen Rees (Scandinavian Studies, University of Oslo), Ralf Westphal and Peter Higgins (both of the Outdoor Education programme at the University of Edinburgh), and will be chaired by Dominic Hinde (Scandinavian Studies, University of Edinburgh).
