The conference Codex and Code: Aesthetics; Language and Politics in an Age of Digital Media (NorLit 2009) was held at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm; August 6–9; 2009. The conference was organized by the Nordic Association for Comparative Literature (NorLit); the Department of Culture and Communication; Linköping University; the School of Computer Science and Communication; Royal Institute of Technology (KTH); the Department of Comparative Literature; Stockholm University; the Department of Culture and Communication; Södertörn University College; and the Department of Comparative Literature; Uppsala University.

    The aim of the conference was to develop the study of Comparative Literature through Nordic collaboration both in its own discipline and in Modern Language and Cultural studies. As the title for the conference suggests; the principal question for the conference was the challenge that the study of literature encounters in an age of digitalization and globalization. It was our aim to encourage discussion of how literary studies respond to the ongoing changes in media and technology; politics and economy. Many have argued that the Humanities currently are in a state of crisis. We believe that the discipline seldom has found itself in such an interesting and fruitful historical moment. Several of these questions have surfaced during earlier media system changes; in particular during Romanticism and Modernism; which provided the conference with an historical frame. The conference Codex and Code also addressed questions of authenticity and originality; identity and gender; literary genres and reading practices; media and materiality; culture and popular culture; language and history; world literature; work aesthetics; translations; and canon formation.

    The conference Codex and Code wanted to stimulate interdisciplinary scholarly research of the literary in a broad sense. The conference was open to scholars in Comparative Literature and in Classical and Modern Languages; Aesthetics; Media and Communication studies; Film and Theatre studies; Philosophy and adjacent disciplines. The conference was organized around a number of thematic sessions in which researchers and scholars presented and discussed papers.

    The conference has received generous financial support from the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation; Magnus Bergwall foundation; Granholms foundation; Linköping University; School of Computer Science and Communication; Royal Institute of Technology; Svenska litteratursällskapet; the Swedish Academy; Swedish Science Council; and Vitterhetsakademien.
