Katrine Fangen is associate professor and Scientific Coordinator of EUMARGINS at the University of Oslo
(Norway). Fangen has contributed to the field of youth research since 1990, and immigration research
since 1999. More specifically, she has done research on issues such as political orientation among youth,
belonging and ethnic identity. Her past research was on young adults in Eastern Germany at the time of
the reunification (1990), and about neo-Nazis in Norway (PhD thesis 1999, monography 2001). The thesis
consists of 7 journal/book articles, among them one was published in an Ashgate anthology on masculinity
and another in a Northwestern University Anthology on right-wing extremism, and three other articles
were published in Acta Sociologica; Journal of Terrorism and Political Violence; and Nordic Journal of
Youth Research. Her postdoctoral study has been on integration and identification among Somali
immigrants in Norway. This study has been published both as a monography in Norwegian, as well as in
scientific journals, including Journal of Refugee Studies, Acta Sociologica and Nordic Journal of Youth
Research. She has published extensively in both national and international journals and has written
several books, including on participant observation as data collection method. She was the main editor of
two books deriving from the project EUMARGINS, one of them published by Ashgate in 2010 and the other
one published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2011. She is also the author and co-author of several articles
deriving from this project. She is a co-editor of Nordic Journal of Youth Research (YOUNG), which is a
SAGE journal and she is a board member of the Sociology of Migration network of the European
Sociological Association (ESA). View her detailed CV: http://folk.uio.no/katrif/index.html.
