ABOUT THE SWISCA SYMPOSIA
The SwiSca symposia are scholarly events focusing on investigations of swearing and taboo language usage from a variety of academic perspectives. The symposia are organized by members of the SwiSca network, an international group of researchers initially based in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, but which now boasts members from Finland and Iceland, as well as affiliates from Europe, the UK, and the US. While the research focus of the network members is not limited to swearing in any particular country or context, the SwiSca name assures a continued association between Scandinavia and swearing research. Previous symposia have taken place at the Danish Language Council (2012), University of Oslo (2013), Uppsala University (2015), University of Southern Denmark (2016), and Helsinki University (2017).
