Background

My PhD-scholarship (1995-99) was connected to the establishment of an interdisciplinary research network on International Migration and Ethnic Relations at the University of Bergen. In the course of my postdoc research, I was a visiting fellow at Goldsmiths College, University of London (2000) and at Yale University (2003). From 2009 to 2014 I worked as professor in Sociology at the University of Bergen (2009-14) where I taught courses on migration, race and racism, transnationalism, sociological theory and social movements.
