Kvendrakten : om å kle seg kvensk.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2008)
Denne artikkelen har fokus på hvordan og hvorfor kvendrakten ble skapt. Hvordan skriver skapelsen av denne drakten seg inn i norsk folkedrakt- og bunadtradisjon? Klær har mange funksjoner, men i denne sammenhengen vil jeg se på det visuelle og identitetsskapende aspektet ved bekledning.

From the late 1800s and until the protection of polar bears came into force in 1973, there were regular private hunting expeditions to the Arctic by boat, including several from Tromsø.
