PANEL CONVERSATION: Ibsen and Childhood, a talk (NO)

Different perspectives on Ibsen and childhood




Deichmanske Library, Grünerløkka

The relationship between children and adults in Ibsen is complicated and often ends in catastrophe. The children are innocent, but subject to horrific things, eventually making them difficult adults.

Torgeir Haugen and Inger Marie Lindboe have edited and written a book on Ibsen and childhood. By studying his plays the authors from different disciplines discuss themes like the worth of a child, what possibilities are available to the children, how are they formed, can Ibsen be read/used in school and kindergarten, what is it about Grieg´s In the hall of the mountain king that fascinates children.

In collaboration with Vidarforlaget and Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus.
