I am a PhD Research Fellow at the Department of Archaeology, History, Cultural Studies and Religion. My work focuses on American history. I am particularly interested in migration, ethnicity, and identity. My ongoing PhD project regards the development of identities among Norwegian-born migrants and their descendants in different types of local communities in Wisconsin.
