What risk factors for Developmental Language Disorder can tell us about the neurobiological mechanisms of language development
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-21)

Contested political alliances in fortress Europe: migrants and Europeans in Helon Habila’s Travellers
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-11-25)
Helon Habila’s Travellers was written as a response to the refugee crisis in 2015, and it narrates loosely connected stories of African asylum seekers precariously travelling in Southern and Western European countries seeking shelter.

Can China change the Arctic regime?
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-10-18)
China’s role in the Arctic regime remains a debatable topic in the expert discourse on the High North. Currently, in view of the aggravated conflicts in other regions that include Russia as the largest Arctic state, and China as its strategic partner, the Arctic regimes are experiencing salient disturbances.

At romaner og skuespill kan ha dokumentariske tendenser er allment kjent, men hva med dikt? Mange forbinder lyrikk med sansning eller følelse framfor analyse, tenkning eller sak. Med utgangspunkt i diktsamlinger av Rune Tuverud, Markus Midré, Espen Stueland og andre diskuteres «sakpoesien», slik den har vokst fram i norsk litteratur fra 1990-tallet og framover. Hva er forholdet mellom det estetiske ...
Misspelled logotypes: the hidden threat to brand identity
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-10-19)
Brand names are valuable company assets often accompanied by a unique graphical composition (i.e., as logotypes).

However, our understanding of how brand names are incidentally ...
