Conceptions of Girlhood Now and Then: "Girls' Literature" and Beyond

An international conference at Linnæus University, Växjö, Sweden, 6th–8th of October 2020


Dear participant,

Due to the Corona pandemic, we have decided to turn our conference into an entirely digital conference. This means that everyone will take part in the conference from home/their office. We would of course love to see you in person, but under the current circumstances this is our best option.

  • As a consequence, you do not have to inform us about whether you want to take part in the conference live or online.
  • There will no longer be a conference fee.
  • We have now updated our conference website with a new sign-up sheet. Please sign up for the conference as soon as possible, but no later than the 1st of August. Please note that this deadline has been changed!
  • Please note that the updated abstracts were due on the 1st of May. If you have not sent us an updated abstract, or if you are happy with the abstract as it stands and have not yet informed us about this, please let us know immediately.
  • Also please note that if you would like to take part in the conference as a listener, please send an e-mail to Do NOT use the registration link - that link is only for keynotes, paper presenters and organisers.
  • The poster presentations will be replaced with mini papers of 10 minutes presentation time plus time for feedback.
  • We will use the e-meeting platform Zoom for the conference, please see below for more information on "how that works"!
  • You will get detailed instructions for the digital presentations at the end of June.
  • There will be a conference publication. The CFP will be sent out when it is ready.

Please follow our Facebook page for more insights into what happens behind the scenes and our speakers:

While you no longer have to experience jetlag from flights, please be aware that we will stick to the Swedish time zone, which means that some of you will get to experience “virtual jetlag”.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Malin Alkestrand on behalf of the conference committee
