Arne Lunde is assistant professor of Scandinavian studies at UCLA.


"An engaging series of case studies that enlarge what we know about immigrant labor in Hollywood; enrich our understanding of the representational history of Scandinavian (hyper)-whiteness, off-whiteness and probationary whiteness; and constitute elucidations of one of the most racially taken-for-granted categories in popular culture" Diane Negra, University College Dublin "Nordic exposures introduces an entirely new dimension to the study of Scandinavians in America while also challenging American cultural assumptions and stereotypes about Scandinavians. Lunde demonstrates how cinema can categorise but then quickly challenge ideological presumptions." Terje I Leiren, University of Washington
