    • Observasjonell film og situasjonsanalyse. Nye muligheter for utvikling av antropologisk forståelse. 

      Arntsen, Bjørn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-19)
      Hvordan bidrar etnografisk film til antropologisk forståelse? Hva er likheter og forskjeller i perspektiver og metoder i etnografiske filmopptak og en mer konvensjonell antropologi? Film og tekst er to ulike representasjonsformer med ulike styrker og svakheter. Jeg vil her argumentere for at det i møtet mellom den i utgangspunktet tekstbaserte situasjonsanalysen, slik den formuleres av Manchesterskolen, ...

      Brattland, Camilla; Eythórsson, Einar; Weines, Jørn; Sunnanå, Knut (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-19)
      Through the construction of a socio-ecological timeline for the Porsanger fjord ecosystem, this article illustrates the different ways in which environmental and social–ecological changes have influenced the adaptations of rural households in coastal Sami communities in Finnmark, north Norway. The main finding is that, although environmental change in the form of seal invasions and dwindling ...

This article describes one attempt to address these issues for the Ju|’hoansi: The Nyae Nyae Village Schools, in which children are educated in Ju|’hoansi language and live with their families ...
    • Methane emissions are lower from reindeer fed lichens compared to a concentrate feed 

      Hansen, Kia Krarup; Sundset, Monica Alterskjær; Folkow, Lars; Nilsen, Marte; Mathiesen, Svein Disch (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Methane emissions from reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) fed lichens (mainly Cladonia stellaris) and a concentrate feed were determined using open-circuit respirometry. The lichen diet was low in crude protein (< 2.6% of dry matter [DM]), starch (6.0% DM) and acid detergent lignin (2.0% DM) compared to the concentrate feed (12.7, 22.5 and 7.2% DM, respectively), and high in neutral detergent ...

      Bleie, Tone (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The Santal Mission began as a Baptist home mission in tribal British India in the late 1860s and went through several name changes. It developed into a transatlantic, Lutheran, enlightenment-oriented, pastoral movement in the late pioneer era (1880s-1890s) with ardent supporters in India, England, Scotland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and America. Under the stewardship of most notably, the co-founders ...
    • Will migrant workers rescue rural regions? Challenges of creating stability through mobility 

      Aure, Marit; Førde, Anniken; Magnussen, Tone (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-16)
      Many rural communities experience new growth through in-migration. In Herøy, Northern Norway, this is a result of increased labour migration in the fishing industry and a comprehensive effort by the municipality to encourage migrant workers to settle there. This paper addresses the ambiguities of creating stability through mobility. Through a case study from Herøy, we explore the complex relations ...

    • Hva mutter gjør er alltid viktig. Om å være kvinne og mann i en nordnorsk bygd i 1970-årene 

      Holtedahl, Lisbet (Book; Bok, 1986)
      Denne bog er resultatet af et møde med et nordnorsk bygdesamfund kaldet Veggefjord. Den tager udgangspunkt i hvad folk i bygden, «veggefjordinger», lærte mig om hvordan de ser på sig selv og deres omverden, om deres måder at vurdere på og om deres glæder og sorger. Jeg forsøger at bruge et enkelt socialantropologisk analyseværktøj til at tolke og organisere det jeg lærte, og de data jeg opfattede ...

      This article examines the fathering practices of men in mobile work in the petroleum industry in Norway. In particular, it analyses the spatial mobility of these men and how their absence and presence impact their fathering. Drawing on insights from gendered migration and mobility studies, fathering and ‘new material’ approaches, this article nuances the understanding of current fathering practices ...
    • Re-politicisation as post-NPM response? Municipal companies in a Norwegian context 

      Moldenæs, Turid; Torsteinsen, Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-03-17)
      This is an exploratory study of re-politicisation of municipal companies in one Norwegian municipality. Unlike re-municipalisation, which seems to imply the reversal of privatisation and out-contracting, and the reinstitution of municipal ownership, the Norwegian case demonstrates a continued adherence to the provision of certain public services through municipal companies. However, our study reveals ...
    • Cooperative Pastoral Production: Reconceptualizing the Relationship between Pastoral Labor and Production 

      Næss, Marius Warg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      A review of the literature concerning nomadic pastoralism reveals a prevalent assumption of a positive effect of labor inputs on pastoral production. However, studies that have tried to quantify the relationship between household labor availability and production are characterized by contradictory results where one reason may be related to the fact that nomadic pastoralists cooperate by sharing and ...
    • Reducing Energy Subsidies in China, India and Russia: Dilemmas for Decision Makers 

      Dansie, Grant; Øverland, Indra; Lanteigne, Marc (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010-02-01)
      This article examines and compares efforts to reduce energy subsidies in China, India and Russia. Despite dissimilarities in forms of governance, these three states have followed surprisingly similar patterns in reducing energy subsidies, characterised by two steps forward, one step back. Non-democratic governments and energy importers might be expected to be more likely to halt subsidies. In fact, ...

    • Promoting and Protecting Values through Leadership Agency: Experiences from Disaggregation and Autonomisation of Waste Management 

      Andersen, Ole Johan; Torsteinsen, Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Disaggregation and autonomisation of public service procurement have been at the cutting edge for the last two to three decades, not least due to the importance that reform programmes inspired by New Public Management (NPM) have acquired. This development has led to widespread corporatisation and increasing emphasis on leadership and managerial freedom. In this article, we explore the role of ...

      Bjørnå, Hilde (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      This article explores how council leaderships act as agents in promoting reputational policies. It introduces a public policy perspective to research on public sector reputation. It asks how the political leader and the administrative leader are agents in reputational policies and to what extent different interests and coalitions can influence thought patterns and behaviour in the municipal ...

      With a long view of the Arctic in international politics and economics, the paper discusses the effects of political and economic power transitions for the Arctic, focusing on Sino-Russian relations. The Arctic has in the last decade received new attention from new quarters of the world, especially Asian emerging powers, which reflects climate change and power transition/globalization. The focus ...
    • Imagining a Postpetroleum Arctic. 

      Dale, Brigt; Kristoffersen, Berit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-29)
      As tensions mount across the Arctic concerning the utilization of natural resources and the implications for ecologies and their social connectedness, we bring attention to how futures beyond the (potential) extraction period are considered. What does the future hold if one looks beyond the extraction period of nonrenewable resources, and how do these questions of where we are heading inform local ...
