This guest lecture will focus on forgotten female playwrights from about 1870 to 1910. Lene Therese Teigen will present the DESK-project (2010-2013), in which she and her collaborators discovered, reread and presented the plays to an audience. Thoughts on structure and content in the plays of some of these playwrights will be presented. She will also reflect upon women’s roles in Norwegian society in the period. Welcome!


Lene Therese Teigen is a writer-director, based in Oslo. She was educated at the University in Bergen with a major in theatre studies, specializing in dramaturgy and directing, and has professor competence in playwriting. Her plays are being produced in Norway and abroad, sometimes with herself as director. She has published three novels and an anthology on drama history in addition to her plays. Integration of academic research with artistic works is central to her production. As a playwright she creates texts with several equal characters, and her works are marked by a special focus on gender awareness and equality.
