Zoom-seminar “Humanister i offentligheten” with Norwegian commentators 12/12

Earlier this year, Johan Östling, Anton Jansson & Ragni Svensson Stringberg released their joint monograph “Humanister i offentligheten” which takes a fresh view on the public role of the humanities in postwar Sweden. This period is typically describes as a crisis-era for the humanities. But were scholars really that marginalized and invisible in Swedish society?

In this Zoom-seminar the book, its premises and results, will be presented by Johan Östling and commented on by two distinguished Norwegian guests: Fredrik Thue and Jostein Gripsrud. Mark the date and time in your calendar (12/12, 13-15) and be prepared for a great discussion!

To get the Zoom-link, please e-mail david.larsson_heidenblad@hist.lu.se, who functions as the host through his dual position as deputy director of LUCK and professor II at Senter for Profesjonsstudier (SPS) at Oslo Metropolitan University.

The seminar will be held in Scandinavian (Swedish & Norwegian).
