Kari Anne K. Drangsland is a Ph.D- candidate at Center for Womens and Gender Research. She graduated as a human geographer from the University of Bergen (UiB) in 2007. Her Ph.D-project is part of the umbrella-project "Waiting for an uncertain future: the temporalities of irregular migration" (research council of Norway). Her empirical focus will be on temporality related to irregular migration in the German migration-hub of Hamburg.

For the past ten years, Drangsland has worked as a researcher, consultant and university lecturer within the field of migration and urban studies. Her professional career has been guided by a profound interest in matters of migration, bordering and difference. More specifically, her work has focused on Norwegian asylum and integration policies and on questions concerning diversity and migration within urban planning. These are also core issues in 'Planning and society', a masters course that Drangsland run together with collegues between 2012-2016, at the Department of Geography at UiB.

In 2007, Drangsland co-founded the Centre of Urban Ecology (CUE) in Bergen (www.byokologi.no). CUE works with issues related to migration and urban development, and conducts projects at the intersection of art, architecture and research. As part of CUE, she has initiated and coproduced a number of projects within the field of migration. In 2011 Center of Urban Ecology received "Anette Tommesens Minnepris" (Norwegian Association for Asylum Seekers) for their work with the relation between asylum reception centers and the local community. In 2011 the Center was one of three nominees to the national design prize "Young designer of the year" by "Norsk Form".

Drangsland is a board member of the board of the multidisciplinary research unit IMER Bergen (International Migration and Ethnic Relation)

Drangsland is doing a PhD project which is part of the umbrella-project "Waiting for an uncertain future: The temporalities of irregular migration" (WAIT). For this project she has done an ethnographic fieldwork in Hamburg, focusing on questions of time and irregular migration.

The WAIT project uses theories of temporality and the concept of 'waitinghood' as tools for producing new and critical insights into the cultural conditions and implications of migration. 'Waitinghood' is about the condition of prolonged waiting, uncertainty and temporariness which is characteristic of irregular migration.

WAIT investigates how temporal structures related to irregular migration are shaped by legal regimes, cultural norms and power relationships, and how they shape subjective experiences and life projects. The project focuses on four European migration-hubs, notably Oslo (Norway), Stockholm (Sweden), Marseille (France) and Hamburg (Germany).
