Dr Elettra Carbone
Department of Scandinavian Studies, UCL

  • Teaching Fellow
  • Faculty of Arts & Humanities

I currently work as Senior Teaching Fellow in Norwegian at the Department of Scandinavian Studies, UCL, and I am one of the Directors of Norvik Press Ltd, UCL. I completed my  PhD in Scandinavian Studies at UCL in February 2011. My monograph, Nordic Italies, examines representations of Italy in Nordic literature written between the 1830s and the 1910s. I also hold an MA in Comparative Literature and a BA in Scandinavian Studies with Management Studies, both from UCL.

In 2011 I worked as a postdoc fellow (Knowledge Transfer Associate) for UCL Advances (the UCL Centre for Entrepreneurship and Business Interaction), examining the challenges faced by small publishing companies specialised in the Humanities and exploring new potential ways of cooperation between small publishing companies like Norvik Press and the higher education sector. 

Research Summary

My current research interests include representations of Italy in Nordic Literatures, nineteenth-century Norwegian literature, the cultural mobility of Thorvaldsen’s sculptures through print culture, and the reception of the Norwegian constitution in European literature. I have published a number of academic articles on these topics in peer-reviewed books and journals. I have co-edited two themed issues of the journal Scandinavica: An International Journal of Scandinavian Studies: The Norwegian Constitution and Independence of 1814, co-edited with Ruth Hemstad (Norvik Press, 2015) and Nordic Publishing and Book History, co-edited with Jakob Stougaard-Nielsen (Norvik Press, 2013). I have also co-edited three anthologies: Sculpture and the Nordic Region, co-edited with Sara Ayres (Routledge, forthcoming); Love and Modernity, co-edited with C.Claire Thomson (Norvik Press, 2013); Lyset kommer fra Sør, co-edited with Giuliano D'Amico (Gyldendal, 2011). My monograph Nordic Italies: Representations of Italy in Nordic Literature from the 1830s to the 1910s was recently published by Nuova Cultura (2016).
