Christopher Martin - ny doktorand i etnologi, antagen av Institutionen för kulturvetenskaper och anställd av Högskolan i Halmstad

Publicerad den 4 september 2014

I was raised and come to Sweden from the States, or more specifically the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. I received my bachelor's degree in anthropology from Ball State University (Muncie, Indiana) and my master's degree in applied cultural analysis here at Lund University. I am now returning as a Lund PhD candidate in ethnology who is employed by Halmstad University. When not studying I enjoy reading, travelling, cooking, and hiking.

My PhD project proposal was titled "The Creation and Experience of Trans-National Regions Through Everyday Practices". More specifically it is an investigation into the institutionalized Öresund Region by way of exploring how individuals live and experience the region itself. I am at the moment particularly interested in whether there exists any sort of shared 'Öresundian' identity. And if not, what sort of barriers exist to the creation of such an identity?
