Book launch: Nordic Whiteness and Migration to the USA

On August 26, 2020 the anthology Nordic Whiteness and Migration to the USA – A Historical Exploration of Identity was launched at the Norwegian Emigrant Museum.

The book launch was held in the Memorial Church of Norwegian Emigration. This church, once named Oak Ridge Lutheran Church, was built near Houson, Minnesota in 1896. It was later dismantled, shipped, and moved to the museum. The site has a symbolic value as the church is representative of a Norwegian American institution that conserved language and culture among white, Norwegian immigrants.
