  • Democratic Equality 

    Fjørtoft, Kjersti (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-04-12)
    Most academic institutions in liberal democratic societies aim toward equality and justice and share the aim that people’s prospects for an academic career should not be affected by factors such as gender, socioeconomic background, ethnicity or race. At the same time, these are precisely the kinds of factors that affect people’s opportunities. Among other things, equality concerns the distribution ...
  • The Queen of the Arctic: Louise Arner Boyd 

    Isaksson, Elisabeth; Ryall, Anka (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-05-18)
    Louise Boyd (1887–1972) was a female pioneer in Arctic research whose legacy includes the exploration of north-east Greenland. In this Perspective piece, we use a broad interdisciplinary approach to investigate her career as a photographer and expedition leader. When documenting glacial retreat during the 1930s, she was at the forefront of the development of glaciology as a research discipline. ...

    In addition to ongoing territorial and material re-organization of power as a result of 19th-century European colonialism, there has been an increasing focus on decolonializing knowledge practices in higher education. Research communities are discussing what it could mean to decolonize thining practices, conditions of knowledge creation, and access to higher education. Since the arts are a powerful ...
  • Arts-based pathways for sustainable transformation towards a more equal world 

    Meling, Lise Karin; Mittner, Lilli; Maxwell, Kate (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-11-22)
    The cultural sector is a potential instigator of change due to its experimental, performative, and relational nature. However, like everywhere else, the cultural sector re-enacts and thus conserves inequalities of various kinds through its outreach to wider audiences and its deep engagement in socio-cultural practices. By taking our actions within the ERASMUS+ project ‘Voices of Women’ as a ...

    Meling, Lise Karin; Fadnes, Petter Frost; Mittner, Lilli (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-10-25)

    This article advances the critical importance of Indigenous journalism – both as a field and practice – for Indigenous peoples’ right to self-determination. The co-authors demonstrate this through discussions of education, scholarship, and dissemination. We begin with a review of the current state of Indigenous journalism education while making a strong case for the continued development and advancement ...
  • Intersectionality 

    Losleben, Lisa Katrin; Musubika, Sarah (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    An individual studying and working at a university is never seen as simply an “educator”, “administrative staff member”, or “student”, but as a complex being with a profession, function, and various identity markers like age, gender, sexuality, ability, ethnicity, skin colour, social background, language, religious beliefs, class, and academic line, among others. Drawing from Kimberlé Crenshaw’s ...
  • 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 ...

    Lotherington, Ann Therese; Obstfelder, Aud Uhlen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2023-05-10)
    Citizenship and dementia studies have, during the last 15 years, grown into a substantial body of research recognising the experiences and agentic powers of people living with dementia. This article aims to contribute to and extend this research field. We undertake the aim through a feminist posthumanist non-representational analysis of a diary written by a man with Alzheimer's disease to explore ...
  • 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.

  • Sustainable gender equality: Opening the black-box of quality assessment in higher arts education 

    Mittner, Lilli; Gjærum, Rikke Gürgens; Blix, Hilde Synnøve (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2022)
    Issues of gender equality (GE) in academia receive increasing attention in terms of social justice and human resource management, and quality of research (Leach, 2016; Thompson, 2018; Pandey, 2019). While there is a body of research on gender representations and measures for women’s advancement in academia (Riegraf et al., 2010), little research has been conducted on the intertwinement of quality ...
  • Knowledge base for the Erasmus+ project Voices of Women (VOW) 

    Meling, Lise Karin; Mittner, Lilli; Smith, Bettina; Klok, Janke (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2022-11-23)

It argues for the need to educate agents of change and outlines the VOW approach along four pillars: (1) Performative Research (2) Unheard ...
  • Barns fiskevær: Jenters og gutters uteaktiviteter som bidrag til konstruksjon av sted og kjønn 

    Gerrard, Siri (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-08-29)
    Artikkelen handler om barn og deres utendørsaktiviteter i et nordnorsk fiskevær som jeg velger å kalle for Fiskeværet. Barna, dvs. fire jenter og fem gutter i åtte-tiårsalderen, gikk på en skole der elever fra flere trinn var samlet i en og samme klasse, noe som er vanlig på norske skoler der elevtallet er lite. Spørsmålet jeg stiller er hvordan barnas utendørsaktiviteter bidro til å konstruere sted ...

    Mittner, Lilli; Dalby, Karoline; Gjærum, Rikke Gürgens (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-19)
    Purpose: In this paper we describe how co-creative art practices can involve people living with dementia as active citizens.

  • Forslag til saker på årsmøtet i Norges Fiskarlag 

    Andreassen, Hege Kristin; Gerrard, Siri (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2021-10-09)
    Den siste uka har det pågått en debatt i media om trakassering av kvinner i fiskeryrket. Kvinnelige fiskere har stått fram med rystende historier. Ukulturen i fiskerinæringen er et kulturelt og strukturelt problem.
