Biography

Elizabeth earned a MA in Cross-Cultural Studies from University of Copenhagen and a BA in Cultural Encounters and Performance Design from Roskilde University, Denmark. 

She is interested in identity formation within the African diaspora in Western Europe, particularly in Scandinavia. Her focus is on possible identities for people of European and African descent, within European contexts where race is denied as a social factor. She wants to question notions of nationality and belonging within ideologies of social equality and examine how these race blind ideologies plus colonial amnesia inform a narrative of the nation and the citizen.
