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!
