Cheryl Ball Oslo School of Architecture and Design- Illinois State University Ball will work with The Centre for Design Research to implement an online, peer-reviewed, digital media journal. Based on this process, she will draft a trade book on starting such journals with colleagues at AHO and in the U.S. and mentor PhD students in writing for publication. Dennis Becker Norwegian University of Life Sciences - University of Minnesota Bioenergy development is a key component of national carbon mitigation strategies. This project identifies similarities and differences in US and Norwegian approaches and examines mixes of policy instruments that promote sustainable production. Understanding those approaches may expand rural development opportunities and increase diversity of domestic energy production. Sarah Benson Fulbright Roving Scholar - Burke School Benson will be conducting workshops for secondary students and teachers. Through hands-on activities and simulations students will be engaged in discussions and learning activities that will lead to a deeper understanding of American government; while teachers will explore cooperative learning strategies that can be used in their classrooms.
4 Elissa Brown Hedmark University College/Norwegian School of Sport Sciences - Williams College Brown will research how the Norwegian value of friluftsliv (open air life) has been integrated into formal school curricula, and how, in turn, this type of outdoor education influences environmental knowledge and attitudes. She will research outdoor learning both in theory and in practice, focusing on how education can be extended beyond classroom walls. Flannery Burke Fulbright Roving Scholar - St. Louis University Burke will further her training and research in the scholarship of history teaching and learning while reflecting on the meaning of nature in U.S. and Norwegian culture, an interest that springs from her scholarship as an environmental historian.

Juliana Hanle University of Oslo - Yale University Hanle will conduct a journalism project on the interactions between natural resource development and fishing and reindeer herding communities in the far north. She will combine traditional journalism, experiential observation, and culturalhistorical research to address the changing socio-economic landscapes of the Arctic. Hansen Johnson Norwegian University of Science and Technology - Bates College Johnson will undertake a two-part project in conducting and communicating science. He will study the effects of frost on the photosynthetic efficiency of conifer tissues to understand how climate change will alter carbon cycling in the boreal forest. Johnson will also produce a science blog that describes current research by Norwegian scientists for a general readership.
6 Alisa Jordheim University of Oslo - University of Cincinnati Jordheim will compile an anthology of vocal music by contemporary and historic Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish composers and translate these works into both the International Phonetic Alphabet and English. The anthology will include information on the composers and poets, notes on cultural context and diction, and a recording of Jordheim s performance of the repertoire. Mark Kilstofte University of Oslo - Furman University Kilstofte will compose an opera based on Ibsen s Brand, the story of a passionate, well-intentioned priest brought to ruin (or cataclysmic redemption) by his uncompromising beliefs. In addition to developing new means of structuring the work, Kilstofte will explore the parallels between its themes and today s world of all or nothing (Brand s motto) religious fervor. Kelsey Klein University of Oslo - Saint Olaf College Klein will join a research team investigating the factors related to the variable outcomes of cochlear implant users in Oslo, Norway. Through various cognitive tests and selfreport surveys, she will help compile data about individuals who received cochlear implants before the age of 18. She will also take classes through the department of Special Needs Education. Hugh Koeze English Teaching Assistant at Bergen Cathedral School/ University of Bergen - University of North Carolina Koeze will serve as an English Teaching Assistant for both upper secondary school and university students. He will also study Norwegian literature, and he hopes to spend much of his time exploring natural areas and Norwegian outdoors culture.
7 Anil Kulkarni Norwegian University of Science and Technology - Pennsylvania State University Kulkarni will present lectures and conduct collaborative research on indoor air quality. In the lecture series he plans to cover topics, such as: fundamentals, measurement, mitigation, regulatory guidelines and design techniques; and also, professional ethics. In research he plans to focus on indoor and outdoor fugitive emissions in the materials production industries. Tim Machan University of Oslo - University of Notre Dame Machan will teach courses on Chaucer and the history of the English language. He also will conduct research for a book that explores literary contact between Scandinavia and Britain and particularly how the medieval period came to be represented by and understood through post-medieval work on philology, literary history, and ethnicity. Christopher Monz University of Tromsø - Utah State University Dr. Monz s expertise is in recreation and tourism ecological impact issues in the USA. While in Norway, he will be collaborating on research examining visitor use and ecological impacts in arctic/alpine national parks in northern Norway. He will also be assisting in the development of a new course on tourism management and guest lecturing on ecological issues in parks. Judd Morrissey University of Bergen - School of the Art Institute of Chicago Morrissey will engage in a practice-based research project, Electronic Writing in Mixed and Augmented Reality, investigating the literary potentials of emerging technologies that complicate the boundaries between physical and virtual space. The core of the project will be a narrative for mobile devices mapped to specific sites within the dramatic Bergen landscape.
8 John Naviaux Norwegian University of Science and Technology - University of California Irvine Mercury is a serious environmental toxin, and seasonal snowmelts can release large amounts of it into the environment depending on how deeply the mercury has penetrated into the snow. Naviaux will quantify these mercury gradients and analyze the potential health impacts associated with future increases in global temperature and snowmelt. Kathleen Ralls Fulbright Roving Scholar - Westford Academy Ralls will use US immigration patterns to help Norwegian teachers and students explore similarities and differences between the two nations. Students will learn how particular waves of immigration have impacted economics, education, social issues and government throughout history. By studying these patterns, predictions can be made for the future success of both countries. Doug Rossinow University of Oslo - Metropolitan State University Rossinow will teach about America and the world since 1898, with an emphasis on U.S. interactions with Asia and more generally on the intersection of U.S. power and third world nationalism.
