Global Migration Seminar: Life-boats and Narratives about Women's Lives Across Borders


Life-boats and Narratives about Women's Lives across Borders - A Meeting Between Art and Science.

The book 'A Shipload of Women's Memories. Narratives across Borders' (Aalborg University Press 2017) is based on a unique collaboration between Ann-Dorte Christensen, professor of sociology and gender studies at Aalborg University and visual artist Marit Benthe Norheim.

Alla Global Migration-seminarier börjar med en gemensam frukost kl. 8:30 i köket på Institutionen för globala studier (Vån 4, hus 2E, Campus Linné)

Marit Benthe Norheim's art project 'Life-boats' consists of three sailing sculptures that symbolize different stages in women's lives: Longing - the young woman about to embark on life; Life - the pregnant woman in mid-life; Memories - the older woman. The book is linked to Memories and its figure heads.

Ann-Dorte Christensen has written the 18 portraits of the women over the age of 70 with roots in different countries based on a biographic-narrative approach. Each story is analysed as a unique account of individual experiences of strength, pain and love.
The stories are, at the same time, a source of knowledge about major events in society over the past decades where flight, migration and encounters between different cultures have been common in many societies.

Ann-Dorte Christensen is a Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies, Department for Sociology and Social Work, Aalborg University, Denmark.
Her field of research is focused on gender, masculinity, migration, everyday life and belonging. She is working with qualitative research methods, particularly biographic-narrative methods. She has published widely in Danish and English.

Marit Benthe Norheim is a visual artist. She currently lives and works in Denmark. She has roots in Norway, Iran, London, and Denmark. She has a postgraduate diploma from the Royal Academy of Art, London.
Mobility, flexibility, social participation, direct involvement and collaborations are substantial components in her construction of artistic concepts. Norheim has exhibited widely and has created publicly commissioned artworks in many countries.
