    • Communicating paradox: Uncertainty and the northern lights 

      Heimtun, Bente; Lovelock, Brent (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-08)
      While many characteristics of tourism products are well known, relatively little work has explored elements of uncertainty and risk. Little is known about how tourism operators communicate aspects of uncertainty. This qualitative study uses content analysis to explore the language used in promotional material of tour operators and destination management organisations to communicate the unpredictable ...
    • Creating a Man for the Future: A Narrative Analysis of Male In-Migrants and Their Constructions of Masculinities in a Rural Context 

      Aure, Marit; Munkejord, Mai Camilla (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-10-10)
      Most research on rural masculinity focuses on sedentary and agricultural lifestyles. Based on fieldwork and interviews with 18 male newcomers, this article explores constructions of masculinities among in-migrants engaged in several occupations and entrepreneurial activities in Finnmark, in Northern Norway. Building on the concept of hegemonic masculinities, we show how a specific combination ...
    • The geopolitics of northern travels: Enactments of adventure and exploration in the Norwegian-Russian borderland 

      Wråkberg, Urban (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Critical geopolitics is used in analysing discourses on a micro-social level in the performances and enactments taking place during fact-finding tours and leisure journeys in northernmost Europe. The cases of journeys focussed are those of Scandinavians travelling along, and sometimes departing from, the highway between the Norwegian village of Kirkenes and the Russian city of Murmansk. In travels ...
    • «Herrer i eget hus» - Finnmarksloven i media 

      Eira, Stine Sand (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2013-12-20)
      Forholdet mellom samer og nordmenn, og rettigheter til land og vann, ble igjen satt på dagsordenen i Finnmark i forbindelse med debatten om finnmarksloven. En gjennomgang av to finnmarksaviser viser at uenighetene først og fremst handlet om hvorvidt loven førte til privatisering, eller om finnmarkingene nå ble herrer i eget hus. Artikkelen viser at ulike forståelser av likhet, etnisitet og rettferdighet ...
    • High North scenarios and subnational realities: policies and practices in the Norwegian/Russian border zone 

      Haugseth, Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      As the world was becoming more interdependent, with increased global awareness of the north-ernmost parts of the world, both the Norwegian and Russian governments showed more political commit-ment to and interest in new forms of region-building and development in the High North from 2006 and onwards. Today, more than ten years later, many regional changes are evident in the Norwegian-Russian border ...

    • The Meaning of the Feminist T-Shirt: Social Media, Postmodern Aesthetics, and the Potential for Sociopolitical Change 

      Kvidal-Røvik, Trine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-29)
      This article examines the potential for political or social change as part of postmodern cultural expression in consumer culture. Throughout the article, I discuss the way sociopolitical messages, circulating in contemporary culture, represent an interesting element in terms of their intertextual referencing and postmodern blurring. Postmodern aesthetic features merge commodifying, resistive, and ...
    • Mellom borealisme og orientalisme. Fortellinger og forestillinger om 'de andre' i nordlysturismen 

      Mathisen, Stein Roar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The article takes as its point of departure a media narrative, relating that Northern Lights tourists from the East are not only visiting the northern areas to experience the celestial phenomenon, as their actual hope is to conceive under the Lights. According to alleged old beliefs in the East, this is supposed to give handsomer, healthier, and more intelligent children. The location of these beliefs ...

    • Nature Articulations in Norwegian Advertising Discourse: A Depoliticized Discourse of Climate Change 

      Kvidal-Røvik, Trine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-11)
      This article deals with how nature is articulated in public discourse, and more specifically how humans’ relationship to nature is constructed via such articulations. Based on critical cultural analyses of ads presented in a Norwegian context, the article claims articulations of nature serve to a depoliticization of nature, which silence social differences and reduce environmental politics ...
    • Naturen som rekreasjon og heteroseksuell romantikk: En studie av russiske kvinnelige migranters poetiske fortellinger om natur og kjønn 

      Wara, Tatiana; Munkejord, Mai Camilla (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 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 ...

      Kramvig, Britt; Ekeland, Torun Granstrøm (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2003)
    • Tourism in the Subarctic and the Baltic Sea regions of Europe 

      Wråkberg, Urban (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      It is argued that the cultural dimensions of the Arctic and Subarctic have much to offer contemporary tourism, both as sources of new contents in tours and as an important field in tourism research and management training. In Norway, the Euroarctic is marketed to tourists focusing on nature and wildlife. A limited set of branding elements is used: northern lights, ice hotels, dogsledding, “safaris” ...
    • Tracing Shintoism in Japanese nature-based domestic tourism experiences 

      Lee, Young-Sook; Sakuno, Seiichi; Prebensen, Nina K.; Kimura, Kazuhiko (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-12)
      This study explores into Japanese cultural meaning of nature. The paper studies Japanese domestic tourists to a mountain trail near Tokyo. East Asian concept of nature distinctively identifies itself as a unity between nature and humanity. To gain a more defining understanding of Shintoism-inspired meaning of nature, we surveyed on the meaning of nature, experiences and benefits sought and ...
