The event, titled "World Champions of Gender Equality" ("Verdsmeistrar i likestilling") explores the Nordic brand of gender equality: Its historic trajectory, how we "prove" this brand through ex. global indexes, and how this brand is used by the Nordics domestically and internationally. It also asks how realistic this brand really is.

The event is part of a lecture series called Constructions of the Nordic ("Konstruksjoner av Norden") and all of the upcoming lectures in the series can be found through the National Library's event calendar (external link)

The themes of this lecture coincide with the newly published book Gender Equality and Nation Branding in the Nordic Region, of which Larsen was an editor, along with Sigrun Marie Moss and Inger Skjelsbæk.


The lecture is free and open to the general public. Tickets can be reserved through the National Library's website. It is not necessary to reserve tickets to gain entry, but it does guarantee a seat. The lecture will also be streamed online at the National Library's website as well as on Facebook.
