Background and activities

My PhD project is currently titled 'Racialized Identities and National Belonging among African-Norwegian Youth'. I set out to explore different perceptions of race, blackness and norwegianness among young people of African descent, who were born and grew up in Norway. The project will therefore inquire what constitutes Norwegianness from a marginal perspective, and how the position of 'Other from within' creates new realities of ethnic and national belonging.
