I am a PhD Research Fellow in social sciences, at the CEARC, University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ), with the supervision of Jean-Paul Vanderlinden (UVSQ & UIB) and a visiting researcher at the SVT, University of Bergen (Norway). Within the framework of the SeMPER-Arctic and PREFER projects, my research addresses the local manifestations and experiences of environmental and climatic upheavals. I am interested in how narratives from communities - often marginalized - express forms of resilience and ethical considerations in the face of these upheavals whose framing transcend a merely environmental or climate-based understanding. The approach I deploy is rooted in critical ethnographic work that involves collecting the narratives of these communities during long and/or iterative dwelling stays. The main community with which I engage in this research work is Ittoqqortoormiit (Kalaallit Nunaat). My work sheds light on invisibilized stories and diversifies the discourse on global change. It opens space for alternatives that permanently decentralize the gaze in order to explore new ontological and epistemological resources to understand the ongoing upheavals.
