Centre for Ibsen Studies invites Iida Pöllänen (University of Tampere) to present her current postdoctoral research about the Ibsen legacy in the Harlem Renaissance. The seminar will be held May 8, 2024, from 2:15 PM to 4:00 PM at Henrik Wergelands hus, Blindern Campus, Oslo, and will also be accessible online via registration.

Iida Pöllänen is a Research Council of Finland Postdoctoral Researcher at Tampere University and holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of Oregon. Her research interests include minority literatures in the U.S. and the Nordic countries, modernism, feminist and intersectional theory, and cultural histories of race and racism. Her ongoing postdoctoral project, The Black Renaissance and Its Nordic Affiliations, traces the intertextual connections between the Harlem Renaissance and Nordic literatures as well as studies how discussions of racism, antiracism, and equity traveled through literature across the Atlantic in the early twentieth century.
