Quickly succeeding Per Bäckström’s arrival at the University of Karlstad in October, Nordic Bakhtin Dialogue is gathering in Sweden November 24th-26th 2010 for a seminar with the title  ”Michael Bachtins betydelse för lyrikforskningen, med tonvikt på kronotopbegreppet” – “Mikhail Bakhtin’s influence on poetry research, with emphasis on the concept of chronotope”. Per Bäckström has organized the occasion, and we are all looking forward to inspiring talks and discussions in Karlstad.
