The Hamsun/Ibsen Research Group (HIG)

The Hamsun/Ibsen Research Group (HIG) is a research group at the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education of UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, engaged in a multidisciplinary study of the writings of Norwegian world authors Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) and Knut Hamsun (1859-1952).

Our research primarily focuses on the relation between their writings and society, as well as the exchanges and circulations into which their writings have been absorbed, including contemporary uses of their writings and their influence in various areas. Our perspectives range from areas such as poetics and aesthetics, ecocriticism (especially their writings as reflections on humans’ relationship to nature and resources), disease and health (especially the functions of representations of disease in their writings and the ways in which such representations correspond to modern and contemporary perceptions of disease), remediation and cultural appropriation (especially the conditions pertaining to adaptations of their works and the adaptations as interpretations and new works of art) and publication history (especially sales, author rights, royalties, translations, and Ibsen and Hamsun in the international book market).
