Academic interests

I am a postdoctoral fellow on the HEI: Heritage Experience Initiative, in the working group Digital heritage. My research project focuses on the use of digital tools in order to narrate, disseminate and promote heritage. I am especially interested in how digital tools are used as part of Vestfold county's efforts for promoting vikings and the viking age, and how digital tools here affect the dissemination of vikings and the viking age as cultural heritage.

The aim of the project is to better understand how different groups and actors narrate cultural heritage and the opportunities digital multimedia tools gives for narrating cultural heritage in new ways. With this project I hope to contribute to the understanding of how cultural heritage is used in our society and how it affects our view on, and our use of, the past in the present.

Background

I have a masters degree in cultural history at UiO with the thesis Da Lucifers lenke ble Åsamøyens bånd: om endring av forståelsen av magiske kunster fra bruk til forskningsobjekt, sett gjennom en svartebok fra Jeløya (NFS M.M. 106 I) about the differing understandings of a Black book from the beginning of the 19th Century, from its authors perspective and as a folkloristic research object. 

In my Phd thesis, Ein lut av det nære levande livet" : tradisjon, tradisjonselement og tradisjonsforskere : en studie av spørrelisteserien Ord og sed 1934-1947, I studied the construction of research objects meant for cultural historical research. The project was an analysis of the questionnaire series Ord og sed (Words and Custom), issued as a journal between 1934 and 1947. The questionnaires were meant to gather information on Norwegian folk tradition and the words, stories, things and practices that were seen as part of it. I have written about in what way the texts of the questionnaires relate folk tradition. I focused on how these texts constructed "objectivized" words, stories, things and practices that could become elements of a uniform "folk tradition".
