Adriana Margareta Dancus is Associate Professor at the University of South-Eastern Norway. She researches at the crossroads of gender and ethnicity studies, with a focus on contemporary Scandinavian film and literature. Her most recent book, Exposing Vulnerability: Self-Mediation in Scandinavian Films by Women (Intellect Books/The University of Chicago Press, 2019), is a cultural and socio-political analysis of contemporary films by Scandinavian women as they use their own experiences with globally relevant issues such as race, gender, mental illness, bully-ing, and the trauma of migration.
