Swedish academy announces new member
The Swedish Academy has appointed Sara Danius as a new member of the prestigious 18-member group. Since 1901, the Academy has annually decided who will be the laureate for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Danius is a professor of aesthetics at Södertörn University in Stockholm and an associate professor of literature at Uppsala University.
She replaces Knut Ahnlund who died in late 2012. Danius will be formally installed in December 2013.
