What is your migration story? Do you want to share your lived experience of moving to Norway? In the “Our migration history” project, researchers from the University of Stavanger are looking to document lived experiences of migration.
About the project
Together with Stavanger Museum, the Cultural History Department, and professional teachers and classes from local high schools, researchers at the University of Stavanger are leading a project to document immigration to Stavanger and the surrounding region. The project also collaborates with award-winning Iranian cartoonist and former ICORN freelance artist, Ali Dorani. The purpose of the project is to gain increased knowledge about how immigrants experience life in the Stavanger region and Norway in general, also working with the DEMBRA-network and the research group working on democracy and citizenship at the University of Stavanger. This is part of a larger research project “Documenting the undocumented: Immigrant voices of past and present”, which is co-financed by a Peder Sather Grant at UC Berkeley, and where we work with students at the upper secondary, bachelor and master levels, on both sides of the Atlantic.
