2016 Norway Seminar

On October 6-8, 2016, the Department of Geography hosted the 2016 Norway Seminar. Twenty-four researchers and teachers of Norwegian language and culture gathered in Knoxville to discuss international migration to Norway. Anne Mette Ødegård (researcher at FAFO) presented on international labor migration; Susanne Bygnes (University of Bergen) discussed attitudes toward refugees in Norway; and Loveleen Rihel Brenna (SEEMA) presented on the integration of immigrants. Seminar participants also workshopped immigration-related class assignments in a charette. The Norway Seminar was organized by the Norwegian Researchers and Teachers Association of North America, the Department of Geography at UT, and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington DC.
