The programme of professorships upholds values such as culture, humanism and social commitment. These are values powerfully embodied by the deeply loved Swedish authors and artists Moa Martinson and Tage Danielsson.
From 2021, Linköping University will award fixed-term professorships in the names of Moa Martinson and Tage Danielsson. These visiting professorships are one element of a university initiative in the humanities, and will be located in the Department of Culture and Society (IKOS).
The professorships are intended for renowned researchers from Sweden or abroad who are active in the humanities, social sciences and aspects of the educational sciences with a humanities focus, and to authors, educators, teachers, journalists, writers, artists, film creators, photographers and those active in other art forms.
The holders of the Moa Martinson and Tage Danielsson professorships will have the opportunity during a period of 1 to 3 years to conduct scholarly, intellectual, artistic or pedagogic operations at IKOS. This will take place in a manner that enriches the department’s environments for critical education and research with a societal relevance.
