Greenblatt and the Holberg Prize
Today Stephen Greenblatt will be receiving the Holberg Prize from the University of Bergen. A few weeks ago I gave a presentation in a seminar here at UiB on Greenblatt’s book The Swerve, and that piece can now be read here on the blog ‘In the Middle’. As of 7 June it had received over 9000 page views and several thousand shares. Perhaps that qualifies as viral?
When the prize was first announced a few months ago I was also interviewed for an article (in Norwegian) in the independent newspaper for the University of Bergen, På Høyden.
Now, looking forward to the future: Nominate someone for the Holberg Prize 2017 – due 15 June!
