PhD position on the ethnography of Northern landscapes

3 year full time PhD position at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) and the Barents Institute in Kirkenes. (2nd call)

The position is associated to the Future North project, funded by the Norwegian Research Council within its SAMKUL Program. Future North aims to map and document the current Arctic and Subarctic landscapes through experimental interactive modes of mapping. Founded on a conception of landscape as a shared human experience, the PhD project should aim to bring to the foreground the voices of Northern residents – indigenous, non-indigenous, and new-comers. It should aim to develop strategies for mapping the relationship between these voices and the perception and representation of contemporary and future landscapes, as the Arctic advances headlong into massive industrialization, exploration for more resources, and speculative planning. The team includes 4 researchers from architecture, landscape, design, media, and social sciences, as well as 3 PhD fellows.
