Cultural transition of immigrant communities in the United States; science and technology in American society and culture
My research interest has been to examine the relations between the ideological basis of the establishment and maturity of modern industrialized society and the construction of ethnic and national identities. For the past decade, I have pursued this research interest through the case of Swedish immigrants in Chicago area in late 19th and early 20th centuries. I am now preparing to shift my research field to Pacific Northwest, focusing on the coast of Washington state.
