Personal profile

Research areas

On the border between Mexico and Texas: Ethnic communities and power in an historical perspective
Anne Magnussen is working on a research project about how history is used in a small Texas town to reproduce ethnic communities and maintain – or question – the relationship of power between them. Focus is especially on the relationship between Mexican Americans and European Americans, but also the African American community is included in the study. The project is concerned with the period of time starting at the end of the 19th century and until the present day. It builds on Archival material collected as a visiting scholar at the University of Texas at Austin.

Comics and Political Caricature as Aesthetic, Cultural and Political Signs
From 2011, Anne Magnussen is the manager of NNCORE, the Nordic Network for Comics Research, funded by the Danish Research Council, 2011-2013. Comics have been a constant in her work, from her PhD thesis on Spanish comics 1970-1995 to her latest articles about memory, dictatorship and political conflict in Spanish and Argentine comics. NNCORE will further strengthen this component of her research.

Narratives and the Uses of History
Narratives and the uses of history is a recurrent theoretical and analytical focus in Anne Magnussen’s research, incl. in the Texas/Mexico project and in her work on comics (described above). She is especially interested in how history is used to construct and/or question ethnic identities and local, national and transnational communities, and on how history is used in defining places such as towns, cities and neighborhoods.
