In late August, the Norwegian journal Samtiden will publish an issue in part devoted to the trial of the mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik. I have contributed an essay called “Markedslogikk og kulturkritikk: Om Breivik og ubehaget i den postmoderne kulturen” (“Market logic and cultural critique: About Breivik and the Discontents of Postmodern Culture”).
An excerpt from this essay was published in Dagbladet on August 25, 2012.
I have uploaded my article about the different position of the humanities in Norway and in the United States. Click here to download a pdf file. This essay is written in Norwegian.
On Sunday 23 October, CBC’s radio program “The Sunday Edition” had a segment on Ibsen, which included an interview with a fascinating young Sudanese artist inspired by Ibsen’s Nora, and a conversation with Paula Dankert, from the National Theatre in Ottawa, and Toril Moi, and the experience of studying Ibsen on Fogo Island. A link to the audio file (available as a pop-up from the page) can be found here.
