Baltic&Nordic Studies

The Romanian Association of Baltic and Nordic Studies (Asociația Românã pentru Studii Baltice și Nordice – ARSBN) is the leading Romanian organization involved in the advancement of Scandinavian studies in Romania. ARSBN organizes, starting with 2009, a yearly international conference of Baltic and Nordic Studies, publishes the bi-annual peer-reviewed Journal of Baltic and Nordic Studies, edits monographs, volumes of documents, translates Scandinavian and Baltic authors into Romanian, coordinates the Summer School of Baltic and Nordic Studies in Romania. It also organizes various events, exhibitions, conferences, meetings and book presentations with subjects related to Nordic area studies. It offers grants and prizes in order to encourage the development of Scandinavian research in Romania. It has also set up a small library of Baltic and Nordic studies which is continuously enhanced. Thus, ARSBN has an extensive web of partners within research institutions and universities in Scandinavia and around the Baltic Sea area, which it seeks to develop by networking and engaging in common ventures. The current project draws on the expertise of our specialists in both Scandinavian and Romanian cultural and memory studies and aims, inter alia, at bolstering our long-term relationship with our Scandinavian partners, which is a pillar of the strategy of our Association, developing the research potential of our senior and junior fellows, shedding light on research topics of high contemporary relevance, bringing Norway and Romania closer together by unveiling some traits and areas of cooperation in which the two countries have been engaged in the modern and recent past. ARSBN has been involved in facilitating the study and enhancing the knowledge of Scandinavian history, culture and institutions in Romania.
