Scand30: Cabin Fever—Crime and Horror in Norway
Ellen Rees, Professor of Literature, University of Oslo

Nearly half of the Norwegian population owns a vacation cabin by the sea or in the mountains or woods. Small wonder, then, that the isolated cabin functions as the “closed room” for crime fiction and the last refuge of the “final girl” in horror films over the last half century. Explore the world of revenant pirate captains, zombified Nazi soldiers and neurotic urban dwellers who really just want to get away from it all…and end up dead!

 

Scandinavian 30 is a series of free, thirty-minute talks by Scandinavian Studies and other UW faculty held on the second Thursday of each month at the Nordic Museum. Grab a drink at our café, Freya, enjoy the evening, and learn about Scandinavia!

 

Doors: 6:30pm | Lecture: 7pm

 

Cost: Free; RSVP appreciated
