2023-03-15 – March Vesterheim Bokprat: Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen (Online)



Wednesday, March 15 (7:00-8:15 pm CT)


Dr. Maren Anderson Johnson


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Dr. Maren Johnson, Luther College's Associate Professor of Nordic Studies and Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies Director, facilitates a monthly bokprat, discussing Scandinavian authors and Scandinavian life. Join us in March for a discussion of Ibsen's play Ghosts.

First performed in 1882, Ghosts is the controversial and tragic play by the famed Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Scandalous in its day for its frank discussion of venereal disease, marital infidelity, incest, and euthanasia, Ghosts continues to resonant with modern audiences for its intense psychological drama and sharp social criticism.


Registrants should secure their own copy of the book (available for purchase here through Vesterheim Museum Store) and have read it prior to the discussion. Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.
