  • A FLexible musical instrument Augmentation that is Programmable, Integrated in a Box (FLAPIBox) 

    Stifjell, Erik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
    Most musical instrument augmentations aim to only fit one specific instrument and depend on an external sound system to work as intended. In a more acoustic concert setting this often alienates the electronic sound component. The FLAPIBox is an integrated solution that fits most acoustic instruments and use its own resonance for playing electronic sound in a more organic way—through the instrument ...
  • When details matter: Integrative revision of Holarctic Coelophthinia Edwards (Diptera, Mycetophilidae), including mapping of its mitogenome, leads to the description of four new pseudocryptic species 

    Kjærandsen, Jostein; Kerr, Peter H.; Lindemann, Jon Peder; Kurina, Olavi (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-02-14)
    Background - The small genus Coelophthinia Edwards, 1941 of the subfamily Gnoristinae (Diptera, Mycetophilidae) is so far known to harbour four species from the Palaearctic, Nearctic and Neotropical Regions. Extensive DNA barcoding of fungus gnats of the family Mycetophilidae through the International Barcode of Life project (iBOL) have initiated integrative studies resulting in taxonomic upgrades ...
  • The Ervika Runestone and Other Evidence for the Early Christianization of Northern Norway 

    Spangen, Marte; Henriksen, Jørn Erik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024)
    In the early 1980s, a runestone fragment with a Christian inscription from the early eleventh century was discovered in Harstad town, northern Norway, in excavated masses originating from the farm Ervika. Runestones are very rare archaeological finds in this region, but, despite being included in runological overviews, the Ervika stone has not been studied or published by archaeologists or historians. ...

    De Barba, Marta; Baur, Molly; Boyer, Frédéric; Fumagalli, Luca; Konec, Marjeta; Miquel, Christian; Pazhenkova, Elena; Remollino, Nadège; Skrbinšek, Tomaž; Stoffel, Céline; Taberlet, Pierre Robert Michel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-15)
    Continued advancements in environmental DNA (eDNA) research have made it possible to access intraspecific variation from eDNA samples, opening new opportunities to expand non-invasive genetic studies of wildlife populations. However, the use of eDNA samples for individual genotyping, as typically performed in non-invasive genetics, still remains elusive. We present successful individual genotyping ...
  • The Domestic Turn in Postpandemic Indigenous Arctic Tourism: Emerging Stories of Self and Other 

    Brattland, Camilla; Ren, Carina; Bembom, Elsbeth; Bruin, Randy (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
    In this article, we explore how the lockdowns followed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent rise in domestic tourism impacted the ways in which Arctic tourism businesses sold and shared their experiences and stories to the domestic tourist–for many, a new and unusual guest. In exploring cases from Greenland and Northern Norway, we are interested in describing tourism marketing and product ...
  • Young and burned out–the dilemma of women’s elite football. Early termination of the football career for elite women footballers in Norway caused by a high degree of emotional and interpersonal stressors 

    Wilhelmsen, Linda (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-09-30)
    Early termination of football careers is a challenge for elite women footballers. They quit their careers before experience, competence, and performance are fully developed, and women’s football is deprived of the opportunity to develop to the highest optimal quality. Women’s elite football is mostly semi-professional, with athletes juggling between football, work, and education. This qualitative ...

    Mármol-Sánchez, Emilio; Fromm, Bastian; Oskolkov, Nikolay; Pochon, Zoé; Kalogeropoulos, Panagiotis; Eriksson, Eli; Biryukova, Inna; Sekar, Vaishnovi; Ersmark, Erik; Andersson, Björn; Dalén, Love; Friedländer, Marc R. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-07-18)
    Paleogenomics continues to yield valuable insights into the evolution, population dynamics, and ecology of our ancestors and other extinct species. However, DNA sequencing cannot reveal tissue-specific gene expression, cellular identity, or gene regulation, which are only attainable at the transcriptional level. Pioneering studies have shown that useful RNA can be extracted from ancient specimens ...
  • A Tender World - Transience, Control and the Inevitable 

    Björklund, Maija Liisa (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-12-09)
    In the thesis, I attempt to investigate uncertainty and change, seen through the concepts of tenderness or vulnerability. Using examples from movements and practices like Deep Adaptation and Deep Listening, I also link this perspective to my recent art practice during the MA studies at UIT through concrete projects, and methodolgies used.
