    • The Arctic Playground of Europe: Sir Martin Conway's Svalbard 

      Ryall, Anka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      The development of tourism is a significant aspect of the processes of modernity in the High Arctic.

    • Framing the Arctic: Reconsidering Roald Amundsen's Gjøa Expedition Imagery 

      Høvik, Ingeborg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      In 1906 Roald Amundsen’s Gjøa Expedition returned to Norway after three years in the Arctic. The first to complete a Northwest Passage by sea, the expedition also brought back a substantial amount of ethnographic material concerning the Netsilik Inuit, with whom Amundsen and his crew had been in sustained contact during their stay on King William Island in Nunavut between 1903 and 1905. This ...
    • No place for old women: a critical inquiry into age in later working life 

      Lotherington, Ann Therese; Obstfelder, Aud; Halford, Susan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-11)
      Western countries currently face pressing demands to transform the labour market participation of older workers, in order to address the pressing economic and social challenges of an ageing population. However, in this article we argue that our understanding of older workers is limited by a dominant discourse that emphasises individuals rather than organisations; and valorises youth as the performative ...
    • Gender, citizenship and dementia care: a scoping review of studies to inform policy and future research 

      Bartlett, Ruth L.; Gjernes, Trude Karine Olaug; Lotherington, Ann Therese; Obstfelder, Aud (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-03-17)
      Gender is a neglected dimension in public discourse related to people with dementia. Those living with this condition are typically portrayed in policies and strategies in gender neutral terms as ‘people with dementia’ and ‘family carers’ as if gender does not matter, when clearly it does. The purpose of this scoping review was to take stock of knowledge about gender differences in relation to ...
    • Reproducing the Indigenous: John Møller’s Studio Portraits of Greenlanders in Context 

      Høvik, Ingeborg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-30)
      Between 1889 and 1922, John Møller (1867–1935), the first professional Greenlandic photographer, produced more than 3000 glass plate negatives documenting life in Western Greenland around the turn of the twentieth century. Rooted in an internal understanding of self, Møller’s photographs played an important part in the formation of a contemporary image of Greenlandic indigenous identity. At the same ...

      Background: Sociodemographic and health-related factors are often investigated for their association with the active use of electronic health (eHealth). The importance of such factors has been found to vary, depending on the purpose or means of eHealth and the target user groups. Pakistanis are one of the biggest immigrant groups in the Oslo area, Norway. Due to an especially high risk of developing ...
    • Strange encounters in place stories 

      Kielland, Ingrid Marie (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      This paper will explore place stories as a site of encounter between different constructions of place, indigeneity and strangers. The paper shows how place stories used by local actors debating a would-be Olympic bid from the Northern Norwegian town Tromsø/Romsa were premised on different versions of ‘us’, ‘they’ and ‘the strangers’. While indigenous Sami pasts and presents of the town were drawn ...

    • Citizenship as Distributed Achievements: Shaping New Conditions for an Everyday Life with Dementia 

      Ursin, Gøril; Lotherington, Ann Therese (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-01)
      Citizenship for people with a disability has become a notable subject within disability studies, but dementia has only sparingly been included in these studies. However, an important international debate on citizenship for people with dementia is emerging, highlighting rights, empowerment, agency, and new socio-political understandings. Yet, even though these studies often entail a relational ...
    • The personal is political yet again: Bringing struggles between gender equality and gendered next of kin onto the feminist agenda 

      Lotherington, Ann Therese; Obstfelder, Aud; Ursin, Gøril (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-18)
      In spite of feminist criticism of the welfare state, Norwegian society is frequently perceived as gender-equal. As a truism of public discourse, gender equality affirms a neoliberal understanding of individuals as able to act independently and to freely choose their course in life. This article disrupts that truism with an analysis of a transitional process that occurred to a seemingly free and ...
    • (En)Gendering Change in Small-scale Fisheries and Fishing Communities in a Globalized World, Guest Editorial 

      Frangoudes, Katia; Gerrard, Siri (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-28)

    • Implicit Affective Rivalry: A Behavioral and fMRI Study Combining Olfactory and Auditory Stimulation 

      Berthold-Losleben, Mark; Habel, Ute; Brehl, Anne-Kathrin; Freiherr, Jessica; Losleben, Katrin; Schneider, Frank; Amunts, Katrin; Kohn, Nils (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-18)
      Aversive odors are highly salient stimuli that serve a protective function. Thus, emotional reactions elicited by negative odors may be hardly influenceable. We aim to elucidate if negative mood induced by negative odors can be modulated automatically by positively valenced stimuli. We included 32 healthy participants (16 men) in an fMRI design combining aversive and neutral olfactory stimuli with ...
    • Associations Between Immigration-Related User Factors and eHealth Activities for Self-Care: Case of First-Generation Immigrants From Pakistan in the Oslo Area, Norway 

      Tatara, Naoe; Hammer, Hugo Lewi; Mirkovic, Jelena; Kjøllesdal, Marte Karoline Råberg; Andreassen, Hege Kristin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      <i>Background</i>: Immigrant populations are often disproportionally affected by chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Use of information and communication technology (ICT) is one promising approach for better self-care of T2DM to mitigate the social health inequalities, if designed for a wider population. However, knowledge is scarce about immigrant populations’ diverse electronic ...
    • Indigenous methodologies and philosophies in Academia (with an epilogue to a trial lecture) 

      Jensen, Ellen Marie (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Why should the practices of Indigenous methodologies as shaped by Indigenous epistemological and ontological perspectives be introduced into academia more fully? And tied to that: How does increased knowledge and understanding of Indigenous resistances over time fit with growing movements to engage in “truth and reconciliation” efforts in the ongoing treatment of Indigenous peoples?
    • IKT-arbeid i helse- og omsorgssektoren 

      Andreassen, Hege Kristin; Obstfelder, Aud; Lotherington, Ann Therese (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019)
      This chapter reports from three studies of implementation and use of electronic patient records and systems for health information exchange. In contemporary health care such large ICT systems are implemented on all levels. Nevertheless, there is a growing awareness that the potential for crossinstitutional communication and quality improvements of the health- and care services that these systems ...
    • The passport as actor in the enactment of the Russian-Norwegian border 

      Lotherington, Ann Therese; Flemmen, Anne Britt (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019)
      The point of departure for this chapter is that the passport can only be understood with regard to the conduct and practical experience of those using it, and that the passport is embedded in ‘heterogeneous networks’ of people, practices and things (Timmermans and Berg 2003). The passport is nothing in and by itself but becomes of significance the moment a closed border is to be passed. The point ...
    • Introduction: guest editorial for special issue ‘gender and im(mobilities)
