Carola Kleemann


Associate professor Norwegian language and literature

Job description

I teach Norwegian language and literature in teacher education. Spring term 2022, I teach ECE teacher education: BLU-1215 Multicultural childhood in the north, and teacher education: LER-3110: Norwegian didactics: Literacy, multilingualism and bildung. I also supervise master thesis' in Norwegian didactics in teacher education.

My research interest is sustainable language practices in Norwegian and Sámi kindergartens. Sustainability in this context is first and foremost supporting and strengthening indigenous culture and language. Some of these practices are multicultural and multilingual, and thus my field is translanguaging practices, both pedagogical and spontaneous. My research projects are on bilingual North Sámi and Norwegian roleplay, pedagogical translanguaging in language vitalization, and narrative inquiry as a way to explore Sámi pedagogy.  Sustainability is also part of methodology in kindergarten research, and I explore use of GoPro® cameras in research and ECE, both in bilingual and monolingual kindergarten practices, and always in participatory designs. My research projects are on food and harvesting practices in kindergartens, exploring different usages of recordings from fieldwork and cooperations with kindergartens, and exploring what kind of material video-recordings can be.
