Geir Grothen

Geir Grothen


I have a master's degree (cand.philol.) in history of ideas from UiO, PhD in cultural studies from the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN), where I have my principal occupation. I am particularly interested in the relationship between cultural and political imaginations about the role of art and actual encounters between the public and art. I am also interested in leadership and management as a cultural phenomenon, such as how current ideas about career, working life and management are parts of larger narratives. I am also concerned with the suburbs as a social phenomenon, the relationship between animals and people, visual culture, art, and literature.
