Biographical Information

I am Administrator of the North American Office of the University of Oslo International Summer School, where we handle admissions for students from the United States and Canada for the ISS, as well as teaching part -time in the Department of Norwegian. I edit the NORTANA Newsletter, a twice-yearly newsletter for members of the Norwegian Researchers and Teachers Association of North America.

I completed my dissertation in Scandinavian Languages and Literatures (Germanic Studies) from the University of Minnesota in spring 2006. The topic of my dissertation is the work of the Norwegian author Nini Roll Anker, who wrote Kirken, the original for the play Borders, performed for the first time during the Peace Prize Forum at St. Olaf College in February, 2000.

I am particularly interested in women's literature, feminist literary theory, and juvenile literature. I have also done research in writing (especially process writing) in second language pedagogy.
