Associate Professor of English
I do research on the conflict in Northern Ireland and on british culture and politics. Additionally, I do research on the utilisation of simulation games in the classroom and how games (primarly historical - Reacting to the Past) can be used in the teaching of English as a foreign language.
I teach British and American culture, history and politics within teaching training programmes and discipline courses. I supervise BA and MA within those fields in addition to English didactics.
Examples: EN-153, EN-157, EN-159, EN-444, EN-457
I have a long and varied experience from higher education in Norway. Have worked at the University of Oslo, Telemark College and the University of Agder.
