Nordicness, or Nordicity, is a prominent theme today in the cultural industries. Nordic design and fashion, new Nordic cuisine, or Nordic noir are just a few among numerous familiar cultural expressions in the Nordic countries and outside of them. These aesthetics are often facilitated by economic competition but also political projects that depict or promote a Nordic model.

This conference will gather scholars to examine the branding of Nordic aesthetics inside and outside of the Nordic region. The conference organisers aim to focus on studies at the meeting point of aesthetics and industry, or of art and business, in a socio-political context.
