Last updated: 30.09.2013 // It is a pleasure to report that a large number of students is attending the Norwegian courses organized in the Babes- Bolyai University from Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
The Norwegian Literature Abroad Foundation (NORLA) is organizing a seminar for them in collaboration with Professor Sanda Tomescu, head of the Scandinavian Institute. The seminar will focus on translation and Norwegian contemporary literature and is a follow-up of NORLA’s meeting with Romanian publishers during the Gaudeamus Book Fair in Bucharest in 2012. Author Kari Brænne will take part in the seminar.
