TEDx talk, Madison, 2013.
Since August 2015, I have been a Faculty Associate in the, then, Department of Scandinavian Studies (now a Unit in GNS) at
the University of Wisconsin-Madison, following three years as a Distinguished Lecturer, six years as Senior Lecturer, and eight years as Visiting Assistant
Professor. I am teaching Danish language classes as
well as various classes on Scandinavian Literature and Area Studies.
For several years I lived in Bjerringbro,
Denmark, where I worked as a Professor of English and Danish at Bjerringbro Junior
College. Furthermore, I taught courses in English and American Literature at the
University of Aarhus, Denmark, and technical / professional English and Danish at Grundfos Pump Company,
My main interests are Women's Literature,
Crime Literature, Science Fiction, Poetry, Educational Philosophy as Reflected in Literature, and the
use of Technology in Teaching. In the years prior to leaving Denmark I
also worked with the National Advisors for English in developing and propagating teaching
materials which integrate the Internet. My position here offers me the chance to
teach and do
research in all my fields of interest.
