Place and Date of Birth, Nationality: Lillehammer, Norway, 1965, Norwegian

I am currently working on a dissertation called "Production of landscape: Norwegian - German relations in the automobile- and road sectors 1933 - 1940". The project investigate some of the ways in which Norwegian car enthusiasts moved a wide range of arguments, material objects, facts and discourses from Germany into the Norwegian discussion about the automobile. Thus the project engages with work that has been done to realize the wishes and ambitions of the automobile enthusiasts: to make the object - the car - common property, and thereby establish a society based on private driving. One of the sub-terms of the project is to investigate the ways in which particular landscapes emerged and/or were produced in order to accommodate the car and automobility. The theoretical resources of the actor-network -theory (ANT) and Bruno Lator´s concept of "bringing things back" inspire the reading of sources: texts in car magazines and other forms of automotive writings. Material resources, like magazines, caravans, tents, cars will be investigated.

Research interests: Science and Technology Studies, Landscape studies, Mobility, Tourist history.
