We look forward to welcoming you to New Orleans, Louisiana, the site of our Society’s 106th annual meeting. The conference will take place at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, a spacious and well-equipped hotel at the base of Canal and Poydras Streets, on the banks of the Mississippi and only a couple of blocks from the famed French Quarter.

CONFERENCE THEME: CIRCULATIONS
As a port city, New Orleans shares a common character with the Nordic Hanseatic cities of Bergen, Copenhagen, Turku, and Stockholm, which have always been sites and tools of the circulation of goods, people, ideas, and foods, as well as artistic and musical influences. New Orleans connects people to the Nordic region in intriguing and sometimes troubling ways: through the transport—willing or forced—of human beings, through the spread and development of distinctive musical traditions like the blues and jazz, and through an ever more closely linked global marketplace of not only goods, but also literature, film, music, visual arts, and culinary innovations. While other Nordic-themed submissions are also welcome, we particularly invite presentations that explore the diversity of the topic of circulation in the Nordic region and in its relation to the wider world.
