3 year full time PhD position on the ethnography of Northern landscapes, at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) and the Barents Institute in Kirkenes
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.
The team includes 4 researchers from architecture, landscape, design, media, and social sciences, as well as 3 PhD fellows.
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. Eligible PhD-proposals should aim to develop strategies for mapping the landscapes of aspirations, disappointments, and desires as the Arctic advances headlong into massive industrialization, exploration for more resources, and speculative planning.
