A few more words about this course

Unni Irmelin illustrates the evolution of the Norwegian bunad, and argues that to truly understand the bunad, one must look at it from a fresh perspective. While the bunad is a familiar sight at weddings, christenings, and funerals across Norway, Unni Irmelin Kvam - a Norwegian historian, author and podcaster- says that the phenomenon of the bunad is often misunderstood.
For many Norwegians, the bunad is the most valuable garment they own, not only because of its monetary value but also because of its ties to handicraft, traditions, and even national identity and self-esteem.
