Speaker: Lasse Horne Kjældgaard, Professor in Nordic Literature

Get an insight in to the largely forgotten, or perhaps even repressed, cultural debate about the welfare state and its significance to Danish literature and other forms of fiction from 1950 to 1980. Kjældgaard investigates the dialogue unfolding between political and literary (and other fictional) discourses on the welfare state in these decades. The talk will focus upon the disappearance of this notion, which has ramifications far beyond the realms of literary history and may pertain also to the public value of the humanities.
