Dr Elettra Carbone
Department of Scandinavian Studies, UCL
17 Gordon Square
  • Lecturer in Norwegian Studies
  • Faculty of Arts & Humanities
UCL Subsidiary Supervisor

Since September 2017 I am Lecturer in Norwegian Studies at the Department of Scandinavian Studies, UCL. I am also one of the Directors of Norvik Press Ltd, UCL, and a Council Member of the Anglo-Norse Society. 

I completed my PhD in Scandinavian Studies at UCL in February 2011. I 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. Between 2012 and 2017 I was Senior Teaching Fellow in Norwegian at UCL.

Research Summary

My current research focuses on the representation of Scandinavia in the items part of UCL's Special Collections and, more broadly, on the cultural relations between the UK and Scandinavia from the early nineteenth century. I have also worked extensively on representations of Italy in Nordic Literature, nineteenth-century Norwegian literature, the cultural mobility of Thorvaldsen’s sculptures through print culture. 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, 2017); 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 published by Nuova Cultura (2016).
