"The Future can only be Imagined" - Innovation in Farm Tourism from a Phenomenological Perspective
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010)
This article relates to the fast growing research literature on innovation by adopting a phenomenological perspective of change and how change comes about.

Results show highly differentiated products but similar routes in transforming a farm no longer seen as economically viable, into a way of doing life and doing work that ...
Naturen som rekreasjon og heteroseksuell romantikk: En studie av russiske kvinnelige migranters poetiske fortellinger om natur og kjønn
(Journal article, 2016-02-10)
Denne artikkelen undersøker forbindelser mellom natur og kjønn. Vi analyserer data fra feltarbeid og intervjuer med kvinnelige russiske migranter som har bosatt seg i en liten by i Finnmark sammen med en norsk mannlig partner. I artikkelen bygger vi på nyere antropologiske forståelser av natur, samt studier om hvordan natur/sted, kultur og kjønn gjensidig konstituerer hverandre. Basert på denne ...
Communities of practice in the management of an Arctic environment: monitoring knowledge as complementary to scientific knowledge and the precautionary principle?
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-03)
This article engages with knowledge management in governing vulnerable polar areas and tourism. Since the 1870’s Svalbard has been a cruise tourism destination.

Lost in Translation: a case-study of the travel of lean thinking in a hospital.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-09-21)
Background: Lean thinking as a quality improvement approach is introduced in hospitals worldwide, although evidence for its impact is scarce.

In this study, we bring attention to the transformative power of local translation, which creates ...

Bruk/ikke bruk av telemedisin i svangerskaps- og fødselsomsorgen
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
Norge har, i likhet med flere andre stater i den vestlige verden, investert betydelige beløp på innføring av informasjons- og kommunikasjonsteknologi (IKT) i helsesektoren. Til tross for politisk optimisme viser forskning at mange teknologiprosjekter feiler. Forklaringene på feilslåtte teknologiprosjekter er mange og til dels ulike. Det er likevel en klar tendens til å kategorisere IKT-utfordringene ...

The Arctic region is opening up due to climate change, causing sea ice extend and snow cover to decrease. Over the past decade economic activities, including fisheries, shipping, oil & gas, mining and tourism have increased throughout the region. Especially the oil and gas activities are subject to public debate and attract a lot of (international) attention. Obtaining and maintaining the support ...
Poland and the Arctic: Between Science and Diplomacy
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2012)
Poland has noticeably increased its activity in Arctic affairs in recent years. Although the first Polish research facilities on Svalbard were established back in the 1950s (by virtue of being a party to the Treaty concerning Spitsbergen) and the country has been involved in the Arctic environmental cooperation since its inception in the early 1990s, it was not until 2006/2007 when a policy shift ...
