About the Object:
A travel document for Ingeborg Pedersen, “fisherman’s wife,” is on display in the Nordic America Gallery. What can Ingeborg's title and (love?) story teach us about recent histories of courtship, kinship, and labor?
About the Series:
Co-presented with the University of Washington's Department of Scandinavian Studies, this latest iteration of our popular Scand30 series uses one object in the Museum's collection as a point of departure for the speaker's topic. These short, snappy talks are delivered by University of Washington faculty and reflect current research. A light reception will follow the presentation.
