Given that Camilla Collett’s picture decorated the Norwegian 100 kroner bill from 1977 to 1994, it is fitting that the Norwegian Treasury (Finansdepartementet) wants to celebrate her birthday. I will be going to give a lunchtime talk about Camilla Collett for interested staff there on January 24th.
On 23 January it is 200 years since Camilla Collett was born. We celebrate her anniversary with a conference at the National Library in Oslo. The conference is fully booked, but the National Library will live-stream the event at www.nb.no.
On Monday 21st January, my little booklet calledÂ SprÃ¥k og oppmerksomhetÂ [Language and Attention] will be published by Aschehoug Publishers in Oslo. The booklet is part of a series calledÂ StemmerÂ [Voices], consisting of 12 booklets written by women, to mark the centenary of Norwegian women’s right to vote. The series will be launch at the publishers at 19:00.
