Edwardian scholars may be interested in the following ICE event:

Nordic Cosmopolitans: Art and Internationalism in Scandinavia, 1870-1920

taking place at ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark, on 8 January 2014.

The workshop brings together academics and curators to discuss the most recent scholarship on art and internationalism in Scandinavia at the ‘long fin de siecle’. Topics range from the Pre-Raphaelite influence on Danish painting, to neo-classicism in Finnish architecture, Scandinavian artists in Paris, Scandinavian colonial visual culture, and an inside perspective on the recent exhibition Nordic Art: The Modern Breakthrough (Munich and Groninger, 2012-13). The workshop is convened by Ingeborg Bugge (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Rosie Ibbotson (University of Canterbury, NZ), in collaboration with ICE. The programme can be found here.
