The pioneering Norwegian feminist critic Irene Iversen is retiring this year. Her colleagues and friends will celebrate her with a seminar at the University of Oslo on Friday 25 January, from 13:00 – 17:00. I will contribute a very short paper on Ibsen’s Little Eyolf. The seminar will take place in Niels Treschow’s house, room HF-12.
Toril Moi will give a talk (in Norwegian) on Emperor and Galilean at the Ibsen Museum in Oslo on Sunday 20 November at 2:00 p.m. The talk will be called “Tro uten kjærlighet” (“Faith without love”). She will focus on the relevance of Ibsen’s great 1873 play for our own time, not least in the aftermath of the terror attacks in Norway on 22 July 2011.
