PAL Welcomes Ingrid Galtung, our new visiting PAL scholar, who arrives on April 1

Ingrid Galtung is a PhD Research Fellow in comparative literature at the University of Agder in Norway. Her educational background includes an MA in English language literature and a BA in Scandinavian literature from the University of Bergen, Norway. Ingrid works within the field of Modernist studies, taking a special interest in literary evocations of the human body.  Her project examines the relationship between literary aesthetics and early 20th century body cultures in works by Gertrude Stein, H.D., Mina Loy, and Jean Rhys. While at Duke, she plans to complete the introductory chapter of her thesis, tentatively titled “Writing Bodies: The Role of the Corporeal in Modernist Narrative.” She hopes her stay at Duke will broaden and enrich her work.
