Pandemic, people and literature (digital)

A year has passed since the pandemic put the world out of action. What has this time been like? And what will the long-term consequences be, not least for the youngest generation? How did earlier pandemics affect society and the economy, the literature written, and the way people thought?

Social anthropologist Thomas Hylland Eriksen, biologist Dag O Hessen, literary scholar Eirik Vassenden and journalist Hilde Sandvik discuss the consequences which the past year might have for people and nature, and how these could find literary expression. 

This event will be in Norwegian.
