The Swedish Institute for North American Studies (SINAS)
The Swedish Institute for North American Studies (SINAS) conducts research, offers courses and promotes the study of North America. It is the only institute of its kind in Sweden. Founded in 1985, we are a section within the Department of English. The researchers at the institute work closely with our colleagues in American literature at the department. Moreover, the institute serves as a resource for the larger community of scholars at Uppsala University interested in North America, and cooperate with scholars in education, the humanities, law, social sciences, and theology.
Researchers at the Faculty of Languages participate in several interdisciplinary projects.
Projects financed by the Centre for Integrated Research on Culture and Society (CIRCUS)
- From close reading to remote reading: digital humanities and new forms of text analysis
- Human diversity research network
- Ecological Narratives: Bio/Cyber/Semiotic Perspectives
