with Carrie Roy, PhD
Join us for Carrie Roy’s lively talk, “Lutefisk Traditions in the Upper Midwest,” and showing of her DVD, “Where the Sacred Meets the Quivering Profane: Exploring the Public and Private Spheres of Lutefisk.” (If you think you’ve heard it all on the subject of lutefisk, you have not!)
Carrie is a North Dakota native whose scholarly interest in Scandinavian art and culture evolved during her undergrad days at Harvard. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Scandinavian Studies program to earn her M.A., after which she earned another in Medieval Icelandic Studies in Iceland. She returned to the University of Wisconsin to enter the Scandinavian Studies’ Ph.D. program and is currently working towards a professorship in material culture and folklore
With a wealth of academic honors and awards, Carrie has presented at the American Folklore Society’s 2006 and 2008 annual conferences. Equally noteworthy, Carrie’s Harvard professor shows Carrie’s DVD to students taking his “Introduction to Folklore” class.
Program hosted at Kendall College.
