Research Interests

My doctoral work is on the effects of the 22 July 2011 attacks in Oslo and at Utøya on collective identities in the Norwegian society. Other topics I am currently working on include research on nationhood and nationalism, return migration, and migrants' transnational activities.

​In a new article published in Migration Studies, Rojan Tordhol Ezzati examines expressions of unity through value-talk after terrorism in Norway (2011) and France (2015). The analysis examines television news in the two countries and shows that the way national leaders talk about 'our values' can either underline unity or further underline conflict.
