Oslo honours

Professor Inga-Stina Ewbank, internationally-renowned for her translations of Ibsen and her work on Scandinavian theatre, is to receive an honorary degree from the University of Oslo in September. Originally from Sweden, Professor Ewbank studied in the USA and Britain as well as her homeland and has taught at Leeds since 1985.

She instigated a joint research project between the English departments of Leeds and Oslo on the European influence on English literature in the 19th century, and in 1991 was elected to the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters – the combined Norwegian equivalent of the Royal Society and the British Academy. Professor Ewbank retires this year, but will continue to teach.
