A new home.

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

After one and a half years in Notodden, a new home, a family and … full professorship! This, along with a three-month book-writing grant from Telemark University College should put me on firm tracks to finish the next big thing for me: the book with the working title From meaning to sense: Social science in motion. More on this here in this blog!


Breathe snow.

It’s a new job for a new year. After finishing work on the project Geodata, Policing and Urban Development at the University of Hamburg, I have moved back to Norway. To be more exact, I am now a resident of Notodden in Telemark province. Telemark? Yes, Telemark, the home of skiing. Accordingly, two things dominate my life: (a) work, which means publishing articles and developing social science courses for foreign students at Telemark University College. (b) Hiking (before all the snow arrived) and now skiing. Hardangervidda is only a short drive from here, so it looks like this year’s skiing season may well extend deep into April or perhaps even May. Y… I say!
