The past, present and future of the University of Iceland

The history of the University of Iceland is inextricably linked to the history of the Icelandic nation in the 20 th and 21 st centuries. When the University was established in 1911, Iceland was an impoverished nation of farmers and fishermen and that first year there were only 45 students, including one woman, and a very limited selection of subjects on offer. The foundation of the University of Iceland was an important factor in the Icelanders' struggle for independence, which was achieved in 1944, and the development of the University over the last decades has been simply incredible. 

Today, the University of Iceland is a comprehensive research university with around 13,000 students, including 1,200 international students, and a majority of the student population are women. By educating people to pursue diverse careers and producing internationally renowned scientists and academics, the University of Iceland has played a huge part in the fact that today Iceland is one of the most prosperous nations in the world with strong healthcare and education systems, a healthy democratic tradition and a culture that draws accolades from far beyond the borders of the country.

The population, though, is only around 330,000 and Icelandic speakers would be considered one of the smallest linguistic communities in the world. The digital revolution and rapid technological advances present a huge challenge for the Icelandic language and a great deal of responsibility falls on the University of Iceland, as the most significant centre of learning and research in Icelandic in the world.

Der Vortrag wird auf Englisch gehalten.

Bergljot Ørehagen Geist

Mestermøte mellom Ibsen og Munch – Bergljot Øyrehagen Geist

«Når jeg leser Ibsen, leser jeg ham som meg selv» Edvard Munch og Henrik Ibsen er to av de mest betydningsfulle kunstnere Norge har fostret, og de har begge satt dype spor i verdenskunsten. De møttes, men nære venner ble de aldri. Det var en generasjon mellom dem. De vanket begge på Grand cafe, men ikke rundt samme bord. Munch og hans venner satt ofte og så på Ibsen, der han satt alene bak brillene og foran ham en flaske og et drammeglass. Ibsen fulgte med en viss interesse malerens strev for anerkjennelse. Etter å ha blitt vist rundt i den skandaleomsuste utstillingen på Blomqvistkunsthandel i 1895, sa Ibsen til Munch: «Tro mig, det vil gaa Dem som mig, jo flere fiender jo flere venner.» I foredraget MESTERMØTE sidestilles Munchs bilder med Ibsens dramatikk, slik at deres ulike kunstformer kommer i dialog. Munchs motiver er – på samme måte som Ibsens dramaer – «gennemlevet».

Der Vortrag wird auf Norwegisch gehalten.

Overheated Identities and the paradoxes of globalisation

The world is overheated: Only since the turn of the millennium, change has accelerated in the world economy, environmental destruction, mobility and urbanisation, to mention a few areas. Rapid change entails uncertainty and risk in many domains, and as a consequence, people will be inclined to ask fundmental questions about who they are and what that entails.

This is why questions of identity remain central for an understanding of society. Whereas this lecture mentions rapid industrialisation, the enforced return of migrants, population growth in boomtowns, touristification of local culture and the transformation of Manchester United into a global brand, the main focus is on the current trend of identity politics in the Western world – Trump, Brexit, Islamism, right-wing populism, authoritarian nationalism. Drawing on his books Overheating: An Anthropology of Accelerated Change and Identities Destabilised, the author shows the significance of ‘alternative facts’ and competing regimes of knowledge for an understanding of the present situation.

Der Vortrag wird auf Englisch gehalten.
