In-house seminar: Tracts, Tragedy, and Trolls. Ibsen in the USA

Welcome to the autumn's first IN-HOUSE SEMINAR at the Centre for Ibsen Studies!

Image may contain: chin, photography, portrait.

Dean Krouk, Assistant Professor of Nordic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will lecture on "Tracts, Tragedy, and Trolls: Some Thoughts on the History of Ibsen in the United States".

Is there an American version of Ibsen? Not really, but this talk will discuss some telling moments in the history of the reception and interpretation of Ibsen in the US, from the early, non-English-language engagements to midcentury figures such as Arthur Miller and Eva Le Gallienne to the recent explosion of interest in “An Enemy of the People.”

Entrance is free and everyone is welcome. Even if you, just as Marilyn, have only read Arthur Miller's version of "An Enemy of the People"...
