Information for students, faculty and staff regarding COVID-19. (Updated: 4 June 2020)
I am a Researcher at Várdduo and the Co-Director for FADC. My research interests are conflicts between extractive industries and Indigenous peoples.
Since December 1 2019 I am employed as a Researcher at Várdduo - Centre for Sami Research in the project Damage Done: Indigenous experience of and recommendations for energy production. Prior to that I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Várdduo. My postdoc project examined conflicts and power relations between extractive industries and Indigenous peoples through different aspects of the concept Extractive Violence, in order to describe how extractivism can affect Indigenous communities. My research interests include asymmetric conflict and power relations that exist between Indigenous communities and extractive industries and how cultural, structural and extractive violence impact on Indigenous communities. I have worked extensively in Australia and Sweden.
Since July 2018 I am also the Co-Director for the Faculty of Arts Doctoral College (FADC).
Apart from this I teach as much as time allows.
During April 2020 - April 2021 I will be a visiting scholar in CIL, University of South Australia in Adelaide.
