    Frangoudes, Katia; Gerrard, Siri; Said, Alicia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-07-09)
    The Manifesto for the Social Sciences includes two references to gender and the position of women in fisheries: MMSS 1.2.4 refers to the continuing neglect of women’s contributions to the fish supply chain and MMSS 3.6 highlights the need for systematic attention to gendered patterns and inequalities in all the topics of the Manifesto. We elaborate on these points in the following pages, focusing ...
  • 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?
  • Ambivalently awaiting: Norwegian general practitioners' expectations towards a cross-Institutional Electronic health record 

    Melby, Line; Andreassen, Hege Kristin; Torsvik, Torbjørn; Ellingsen, Gunnar; Severinsen, Gro-Hilde; Silsand, Line; Ekeland, Anne Granstrøm; Saadatfard, Omid; Pedersen, Rune (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11)
    A cross-institutional Electronic Health Record (EHR) where all healthcare workers can access a patient's record, is seen as an important means to improved access to information, better patient care, and increased efficiency. In Norway, the first EHR of this type (US based Epic EHR) is to be implemented in the Central Norway Regional Health Authority. General practitioners (GPs) are central actors ...
  • Situated transformations of women and gender relations in small-scale fisheries and communities in a globalized world 

    Frangoudes, Katia; Gerrard, Siri; Kleiber, Danika (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-19)
    The need to uncover, interrogate, and integrate women’s contributions to fisheries in research and development has never been clearer. As coastal and fisheries management continues to look to the Sustainable Development Goals and the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication, as frameworks and mandates, gender equity ...
  • Women fishers in Norway: few, but significant 

    Gerrard, Siri; Kleiber, Danika (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-05)
    Professional fishing and fisheries quota systems can affect women and men differently, yet gender analysis of quota systems is rare. In this article, we use a feminist framing and a mixed methods approach to examine the long-term gendered effects of the introduction of the 1990 quota system in Norway. Using statistics from the National Fishery Registry and the Directorate of Fisheries, we found that ...

  • Multiple ontologies of Alzheimer’s disease in Still Alice and A Song for Martin: A feminist visual studies of technoscience perspective 

    Lukic, Dragana (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-22)
    The prevalence of dementia is increasing worldwide, but there is still no hope of a cure. Huge resources go into biomedical research, whose reductive ‘enactment’ has severe consequences for women, who are predominantly affected by dementia.<br> To challenge such tragic enactment, this article considers ‘multiple ontologies’ of the most common type of dementia – Alzheimer’s disease (AD) – in the ...
  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

    This article addresses the relationship between gender contracts and mobility practices in fishery communities of Norway’s High North, mainly Skarsvåg, Finnmark. By combining perspectives from gender research, anthropology and geography, the aim of this article is to contribute to a greater understanding of the interrelations between structural, material, and cultural changes in the context of ...
  • 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 ...

    Tatara, Naoe; Hammer, Hugo Lewi; Andreassen, Hege; Mirkovic, Jelena; Kjøllesdal, Marte Karoline Råberg (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    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 ...
  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
