Voicing democracy

The Voicing Democracy Research Group will explore democracy and citizenship in Norway through the study of historical and contemporary texts. As texts are central to almost all areas of democratic life, practical studies of texts provide a unique opportunity to understand the conditions, variations and challenges to citizenship. By studying a wide range of textual practices through which citizenship is shaped and enacted, the group set forth to produce new understandings of the particularities of Norwegian citizenship and how it is affected by forces of digitalization and globalization.
