Margaret Atwood: The Handmaid's Tale
In our first Philosophy Tea of autumn 2020, we focus on Atwood’s novel and how it treats a number of highly relevant issues, not least among these being what happens when authoritarian governments use the suppression of women’s rights to help maintain their hold on power.

Inspired by George Orwell’s iconic dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-four, Margaret Atwood set about in 1984 to write a dystopia from, as she has said, “the female point of view”. That such a dystopia was needed can be seen by the popularity of the novel itself and the HBO TV series by the same name (2017-).

Each Philosophy Tea lasts one hour. The sessions are run in English. 

Tickets: 200 kr, students under 26 years 70 kr, senior citizen 150 kr.

The event will be sent live on line, for further information;
