DENMARK AND THE NEW NORTHATLANTIC

I am currently heading an interdisciplinary research program that concerns the renegotiations of identities that are taking place in all parts of the North Atlantic in these years, as a result of independence processes, climate change and globalization. The project revisits the joint history of Denmark and Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, and examins the current efforts to create a new, strong brand for the North Atlantic region. The project is funded by the Carlsberg Foundation 2013-2015.

Primære forskningsområder

Mit fokus er minoritets-majoritetsrelationer, herunder postkoloniale relationer. Jeg er i særdeleshed interesseret i, hvordan sådanne asymmetriske magtforhold forhandles gennem litterære og andre æstetiske udtryk. Min regionale kompetence er Grønland/Skandinavien.  

Kodeord for forskning og vejledning: Narrativer/diskurser om (kollektive) identiteter og tilhørsforhold, Sprog- og kulturmøde, Kulturel oversættelse, Postkoloniale relationer, Relationen Danmark-Grønland, Grønlandsk litteratur, medier, film, ”Det fremmede” i dansk/skandinavisk litteratur.
