Virtual Conference: After much deliberation, due to the uncertainty of ongoing and changing health
restrictions, the AASSC executive decided to again hold our 2022 conference online. Furthermore, it took place independently of Congress 2022, which was also being held exclusively online.

Theme: The 2022 conference had an open theme, and we invited submissions on any Scandinavian / Nordic
related topic in any discipline. In recent years, our conferences have included research from the fields of
anthropology, archaeology, business studies, folkloristics, geography, history, Indigenous studies,
linguistics, literary studies, medieval studies, philosophy, political science, religious studies, and sociology,
among others.

Keynote Speaker: We were pleased to host our keynote speaker for our 2022 conference, Dr.
Sayaka Osanami Törngren, Associate Professor in International Migration and Ethnic Relations and Senior
Researcher at the Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity, and Welfare at Malmö University. Dr.
Osanami Törngren is an expert on race and racialization’s effects on interpersonal encounters.
