About the project

With the support of State Culture Capital Foundation, the researchers of the Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art of the University of Latvia are creating the first informative virtual literary field resource in Latvia – literatura.lv

Not only will it contain the current events of contemporary Latvian literature, dating of literary process and writers' video portraits, etc., but also an extensive database of Latvia's literary workers and their work, from 16th century to present day.

literatura.lv database is regularly updated with the latest information about new publications of Latvian literature and current events (readings, conferences, exhibitions, seminars, etc.) concerning Latvian literature in Latvia and abroad.

Anyone, including students, researchers and readers of literature, will be able to use various search options to find information about Latvian literature, authors or specific works, biographical data and places, as well as discover Latvian literature in new factual and cultural contexts and relationships.

Vortal is based on the previous research and developed databases created by the researchers of the Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art of the University of Latvia.
