TEXTS ON THE MOVE: RECEPTION OF WOMEN’S WRITING IN FINLAND AND RUSSIA 1840–2020

The project aims at mapping reception of Russian women writers in Finland as well as reception of Finnish (both Finnish and Swedish speaking) women authors in Russia. Reception is understood broadly, including not only translations, but also other ways texts have been moving transnationally. Hence it highlights a wide range of literary, cultural and social networks. The project connects to digital research methods as well as to research on digital media, methods and topics that have been developing in the field of gender studies over the last decades. “Texts on the Move” creates new ways of collaboration between transnational research in literature and cultural history, traditional and digital humanities. It is the first large-scale research project to study the history of Finnish-Russian literary relations from the gender viewpoint. The project is funded by Emil Aaltonen Foundation.
