Main content

The purpose of the position is to carry out a follow-up study of the cultural science (ethnological) research that was done during the so-called Lindås project in the 1970s. This research is about landscape understanding and landscape use through a focus on the connection between the utilization of natural resources, working life and social development on Strilelandet through the 20th century. 

The research fellow will work on a project that will shed light on changes in agriculture, landscape and life forms in a coastal landscape over the last 120 years. They will develop their own research questions related to the utilization of landscapes, natural resources and sustainable development. The analysis should be in dialogue with perspectives from the various CeSAM partners.

It is expected that the research fellow will use existing cultural-historical source material from the Lindås project, as well as collect new material that can shed light on the historical changes from the 1970s to today.

The project will be supervised by Kyrre Kverndokk, and collaborate with the BIOSPHERE project.
