About the project

The goal is to develop minority perspectives on experiences of immigrating to Norway. 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.
