For many years, Miluše Juřičková has been a PhD and lecturer of Norwegian language and literature at the Masaryk University in Brno and thereby greatly contributed towards the Czech students’ increased interest in Norwegian language, literature and culture. Juřičková has opened doors for many Norwegian authors to be translated and published in the Czech republic, and she has herself taken great care of a number of authors who have visited the country. Through numerous projects in all genres; non-ficiton, poetry, short stories, novels and crime fiction, she has made Norwegian literature highly visible in the Czech republic.
And as a translator she has made many authors known and dear to Czech readers. Juřičková’s enthusiasm and love for Norwegian literature has enabled it to travel way across the borders of Norway.
