Migration and Memory
Telemark University College
Bø i Telemark, Norway
June 21–23, 2006
The ninth seminar of the Norwegian-American Historical Association, Norway Chapter, entitled “Migration and Memory: Norwegian-American Dimensions” will be held on June 21–23, 2006, at the Department of the Humanities and Cultural Studies, Telemark University College, Bø i Telemark, Norway. As its theme title suggests, the seminar organizers welcome a wide range of topics within Norwegian-American studies. We are particularly interested in papers on subjects related to emigration / immigration and the construction of memory.
NAHA-Norway encourages seminar contributions based on many academic traditions. Topics related to literary, linguistic, and religious studies, to history, social science, fine and folk arts, and cultural studies—as well as multi- and interdisciplinary approaches—are appropriate. NAHA-Norway also emphasizes the need to see Norwegian-American Studies in the context of international migration and ethnic studies in general. Presentations may be delivered in English or Norwegian and, except for invited lecturers, should not exceed twenty minutes.
Prospective speakers are invited to submit a half-page proposal and a one-page CV to NAHA-Norway Chairperson Dina Tolfsby, Norwegian-American Collection, National Library of Norway, Oslo Division; P.O. Box 2674 Solli, N-0203 Oslo; Norway, (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Associate Professor Øyvind T. Gulliksen, Telemark University College, N-3800 Bø i Telemark (email@example.com), by November 1, 2005. For further information please contact Dina Tolfsby or Øyvind T. Gulliksen.
