Nobel Prize in literature to be awarded twice this year The scandal-hit Swedish Academy was blocked from awarding the prize in 2018 following mass resignations. The Nobel Foundation banned the Swedish Academy from awarding last year’s prize following allegations of sexual misconduct against the husband of one of its board members and accusations of leaks, which effectively paralysed the institution. In a press release on Tuesday, the foundation, which executes Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel’s will, said that its Board of Directors “believes that the steps that the Swedish Academy has taken and intends to take will create good opportunities for restoring trust in the Academy as a prize-winning institution”. Laureates for 2018 and 2019 would be announced in autumn, the statement said. The Nobel Prize in Literature will once again be awarded, and this autumn laureates for both 2018 and 2019 will be announced. March 5, 2019 The Nobel Foundation had previously threatened to strip the Swedish Academy of its role in awarding the prize following the scandals, which first emerged in 2017 and resulted in a wave of resignations in protest. Jean-Claude Arnault, the husband of poet and former academy member Katarina Frostenson, was convicted on two charges of rape in October 2018. Frostenson left the body in January after an inquiry found she had leaked the names of prize winners on multiple occasions, which she denied.
