20/4 Institutionalised Hospitality: Receiving Newcomers in Norway

April 19th, 2021 No comments

IMER Online Seminar:

Institutionalised Hospitality: Receiving Newcomers in Norway

Time: Tuesday 20th of April 2021, 12.30 – 13.30

Zoom Link

About the seminar

During and after the summer and fall of 2015 an unprecedented number of asylum seekers arrived to Europe. In response, locals across the continent mobilised to “welcome” them into their communities.

In this seminar, María Hernández Carretero, a postdoctoral researcher from UiO, discusses several forms of citizen mobilisation that developed in the Oslo Region, in Norway. This mobilisation aimed to facilitate meetings between locals and newcomers, including recently settled refugees and other immigrants, as well as the latter’s inclusion, or integration, into Norwegian society.

Using the conceptual lens of “hospitality,” she explores what the nature of these activities tell us about hospitality and expectations of socialisation.  What ideas of the “other” (who is expected to settle and stay) and what kinds of understandings and expectations of hosts/guests, community and incorporation underlie and result from these engagements? The discussion is based on data collected through ethnographic fieldwork carried out in 2018-2019.

Maria Hernández Carretero is a postdoctoral researcher at the department of Social Anthropology at UiO. Her project is part of the larger project NORDHOST: “Nordic Hospitalities in a Context of Migration and Refugee Crisis”

16/3 Becoming Part of Society in Rural Norway

March 8th, 2021 No comments

IMER Hybrid Seminar:

Becoming Part of Society in Rural Norway

Time: Tuesday 16th of March 2021, 11.00 – 12.00

Place: Bergen Global, Jekteviksbakken 31, Bergen

Zoom Link

About the seminar

How do people become part of a community in rural Norway? How do they talk about their experiences with their own and others’ ‘integration’? What role do mundane encounters play and what other topics are revealed in these narratives?

Angelina Penner from NTNU, discusses her PhD research which is based on an ethnographic fieldwork in a small coastal Norwegian town. In this study integration is not understood as a political goal, which is measurable through statistics and achievable through formal policies and structures.

Instead, in 30 biographical interviews and numerous notes, Angelina explores the rather banal moments in which her interlocutors describe feeling more or less part of the community. Frustrations of not being able to make friends in a place where everyone seems to know everyone and narratives about the Norwegian “dugnad” reveal that not only immigrants and refugees are affected by an ideal of integration, which is connected to and perpetuates ideas of homogeneity and racialization.

Angelina Penner is a PhD candidate at the department for Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture at NTNU. She studied social anthropology and sociology in Heidelberg and received her master’s degree in Anthropology of Development at the University in Bergen. Her current study “Becoming part of society: immigrant integration through everyday interactions in rural Norway” is part of the NFR funded project “Living Integration: At the Crossroads between Official Policies, Public Discourses and Everyday Practices”.

IMER Online Seminar:

Health and Migration: A Study of Syrian Refugees moving from the Middle East to Northern Europe

Time: Wednesday 24th of February 2021, 11.30 – 12.30

Join us on Zoom

About the seminar

Health implications of forced displacement have become an essential part of the public health agenda for the 21st century. Yet, the health of displaced individuals in the transit and the early post-migration stage is poorly examined.

In this presentation, PhD candidate Elisabeth Strømme from UiB will discuss the temporal changes in somatic and mental health outcomes and their association with migration. Strømme will focus on Syrian refugees transferring from a conflict-near transit phase in the Middle East to an early resettlement phase in Northern Europe. She will present findings from her PhD project and implications for health policies.

Elisabeth Strømme is a PhD candidate at the department Global Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Bergen.

About the seminar
Scholars argue that anti-Semitism in Norway is less than it was ten years ago. Yet, many Jews view anti- Semitism as an increasing problem in Norway. Although many studies have started to address Jews’ experiences of discrimination and anti-Semitism in Norway, there is still little research about their experiences in school.

In this seminar, PhD candidate Kristoffer Løkken Økland will present findings from his narrative interview study about the school and youth experiences of nine young Norwegians Jews. In his study, Kristoffer explores how young Jews negotiate their identity in the context of their interactions with their peers and their prejudices against them. Imer Bergen

15/11 What does it mean to be an “active citizen” in Scandinavia?

November 1st, 2018 No comments

IMER Lunch Seminar:

What does it mean to be an “active citizen” in Scandinavia?

Time: Thursday 15th of November 2018, 12.30 – 14.00
Place: Christies gate 15, Sampol, Seminar Room at 2nd floor

About the seminar

In current debates about multicultural societies, ideas about active citizenship sometimes play a part. The increase of ethnic, cultural and religious diversity in Scandinavia has led to integration and naturalization policies that focus on social cohesion and stress the need for a shared set of values, identities and commitment to active participation in society. What kind of engagement is seen as good and legitimate, and what kinds of engagement are seen as illegitimate? For this IMER lunch seminar, Noor Jdid from PRIO and SKOK will present insights from her PhD project, which explores active citizenship in Norway and Denmark, among both minority and majority populations. She draws on ethnographic fieldwork in five different neighbourhoods in Oslo (Tøyen, Holmlia, Røa) and Copenhagen (Østerbro, Sydhavn), consisting of 69 life history interviews and 13 focus group discussions with residents of these neighbourhoods, as well as expert interviews and participatory observation. The analysis shows that the intersection of place, gender, class and ethnicity often shapes citizens’ understandings of their own civic engagement. When determining what ‘counts’ as a legitimate and valuable contribution to society, the research participants drew gendered and racialized discursive boundaries between the public and the private spheres.

A light lunch will be served. All welcome!
