Margareth Hagen was appointed rector at the University of Bergen on January 7, 2021. Prior to this she was pro-rector from 2017 to 2021. In her role as pro-rector she had a particular responsibility towards research, ph.d.-programmes, and research ethics.

In the spring of 2021, Hagen was elected rector for the next four-year period from August 2021 to August 2025.

Margareth Hagen is Professor of Italian Literature. Hagen has broad organizational and managerial experience from UiB. She has been Head of Research at the Department of Foreign Languages and has, further, led the Equality Committee at UiB. She was until 31.07.2017 Dean of the Faculty of Humanities.

Her research has focused on the relationship between poetics, literature and history in 16th century Italy. In recent years, however, she has worked on issues at the intersection between the humanities and natural sciences. She is a central member of the Literature and Science research group that seeks to transcend the traditional distinction between the two disciplinary cultures.
