Women's Film History Network: Norden

Revisiting and revising film history through Nordicwomeninfilm.com


Duration: 2016 – 2017

Research Areas
Cinema Studies, Gender Studies


In this project, coordinated by Stockholm University, research and memory institutions collaborate in approaching the history of Nordic film cultures with a revisionist perspective. The Swedish Film Institute’s website Nordic Women in Film was launched in April 2016 with the explicit aim of ”re-writing the history of moving pictures in the Nordic region from a feminist point of view, beginning in Sweden”. So far, the site only features articles on women in Swedish film, but through this project, where two Swedish institutions (Stockholm University and the Swedish Film Institute) join forces with Norway’s National Library and the Danish University of Copenhagen to work with a wider network of film scholars, Nordicwomeninfilm will become a platform for complementing existing accounts of Norwegian and Danish film history.
