Dr. Maren Johnson, Luther College’s Associate Professor of Nordic Studies and Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies Director, facilitates a monthly bokprat, discussing Scandinavian authors and Scandinavian life.

Join us in February to discuss Pakkis by Khalid Hussain. Drawing from his own personal experiences as a Pakistani immigrant to Norway in the 1970s, Hussain discusses the challenges of Sajjad, a teenager in Oslo, as he tries to negotiate his identities as Pakistani and as a new immigrant to Norway. This coming-of-age story illuminates the struggles and challenges of negotiating race and integration in Norway.

This month’s Bokprat is offered in collaboration with Luther College’s Center for Ethics and Public Engagement, and the Civic Sustainability Initiative and is supported in part by the Richard L. and Judith A. Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies.

Enrollment Deadline: February 16, 2021
