    Innovative Memory and Resilient Cities: Echoes from Ancient Constantinople2010Inngår i: The Urban Mind: Cultural and Environmental Dynamics / [ed] Paul J.J. Sinclair, Gullög Nordquist, Frands Herschend and Christian Isendahl, Uppsala: Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Uppsala University , 2010, 391-405 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter uses insights from resilience thinking in analysing a two-thousand-year period of ancient and modern Constantinople, addressing one of the great challenges of the Urban Anthropocene: how to nurture an ecologically sound urbanisation. One of the lessons is that Constantinople maintained a diversity of insurance strategies to a greater degree than  many historical and contemporary urban centres. It invested heavily not only in military infrastructure but also in systems for supplying, storing, and producing food and water. From major granaries and at least four harbours the citizens could receive seaborne goods, but during sieges the trade networks broke down. At those times, when supplies ran dry, there were possibilities to cultivate food within the defensive walls and to catch fish in the Golden Horn. Repeated sieges, which occurred on average every fifty years, generated a diversity of social-ecological memories – the means by which the knowledge, experience, and practice of how to manage a local ecosystem were stored and transmitted in a community. These memories existed in multiple groups of society, partly as a response to the collapse of long-distance, seaborne, grain transports from Egypt. Food production and transports were decentralized into a plethora of smaller subsistence communities (oikoi), which also sold the surplus to the markets of the city. In this way Constantinople became more self-reliant on regional ecosystems. An additional result was that the defensive walls were moved, not in order to construct more buildings but to increase the proportion of gardens and agricultural land. In a comparison with Cairo, it can be seen that these innovations related to enhanced self-reliance in food production made it possible for Constantinople to bounce back from extreme hardships, such as extended sieges, without collapsing into chaos or moral decay. Transformed urban morphology of the city would simply remind residents, through the visual presence of a living garden culture, of the importance of the latter for food security. Without the gardens the long intervals between sieges would probably have been enough to dissolve living memoryHence, the urban  resilience of Constantinople was enhanced, promoting well-established old regimes and traditions of importance for producing ecosystem services to society while at the same time testing and refining new and successful regimes, or in other words through the interplay of memory and innovation. Currently, and even more so in decades to come, the mindsets of urban people hold power in a global arena. Questions related to how the loss of green space in metropolitan landscapes will affect worldviews are worrisome since it is the desires and demands of urban people that will affect future decisions and essentially determine the fate of the planet. People throughout the world, and not least in Western societies, need to be constantly reminded of our dependence on a living planet and stay motivated to support it. Social-ecological memories related to local food production have to be nurtured in urban landscapes as well, and an urban morphology is needed that strengthens ecological awareness across urban populations rather than the opposite.

    Samverkansuppgiften i ett historiskt och institutionellt perspektiv2015Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Universitet och högskolor (UoH) spelar en viktig roll för Sveriges innovationskraft, konkurrenskraft och attraktionskraft. Sverige satsar i internationell jämförelse stora resurser på utbildning och forskning vid UoH. Samverkan mellan lärosäten å ena sidan och företag, offentliga verksamheter och civilsamhället å andra sidan är avgörande för UoHs effekter på det omgivande samhället. Sådan samverkan är även viktig för kvaliteten i forskning och utbildning vid UoH.

    Regeringen har gett VINNOVA uppdrag, i samråd med Vetenskapsrådet samt forskningsråden Forte och Formas, att utforma metoder och kriterier för bedömning av prestation och kvalitet i lärosätenas samverkan med det omgivande samhället, i termer av relevans och nyttiggörande av forskningsbaserad kunskap.

    Utgångspunkter för arbetet med uppdraget har varit ett brett perspektiv på lärosätenas samverkan och hänsyn till UoHs olika roller och förutsättningar. I arbetet med uppdraget har VINNOVA också valt att definiera samverkan som en interaktiv process som skapar ömsesidig nytta, både för UoH och samverkanspartners.

    Syftet med föreliggande rapport är att sätta samverkan i en större historisk, nationell och institutionell kontext för att förstå hur synen på och arbetet med samverkan har utvecklats vid svenska universitet över tiden.

    Public-private innovation: Mediating roles and ICT niches of industrial research institutes2010Inngår i: INNOV-MANAG POLICY PRACT, ISSN 1447-9338, Vol. 12, nr 2, 206-216 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Innovation processes involve diverse sets of organizations including universities, private firms, corporate research labs and public research institutes. Collaborative forms of knowledge production and innovative activity enable actors to reduce risk, specialize, and take advantage of knowledge internal and external to the own organization. This paper discusses interactions and collaborations between public and private sector innovation. This is done through an analysis of semi-public research institutes in Sweden and their roles as arenas for R&D processes involving industry, university and government in terms of funding, research and public-private innovation. Particular attention is paid to technological niches of research institutes and utilization of research findings from collaborative R&D. The results show that institutes occupy specific niches which influence their ways of transferring knowledge. It is argued that diversity among R&D performers as well as funding opportunities is paramount for innovation systems to thrive.

    Strategic Arctic science: national interests in building natural knowledge - interwar era through the Cold War2014Inngår i: Journal of Historical Geography, ISSN 0305-7488, E-ISSN 1095-8614, Vol. 44, 60-80 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    From the 1930s through the 1950s-the decades bracketing the second and third international polar years research in the physical and biological environmental sciences of the Arctic increased dramatically. The heroic, expedition-based style of Arctic science, dominant in the first decades of the twentieth century, gave way to a systematic, long-term, strategic and largely statefunded model of research which increased both Arctic presence and the volume of research output. Factors that made this change possible were distinct for each of the five circumpolar nation-states considered here. For Soviet leaders, the Arctic was an untamed land containing vast economic resources, all within reach if its long-sought Northern Sea Route became reality; Soviet officials sought environmental knowledge of this region with a range of motivations from economic and strategic concerns to enhancing the prestige of socialism. In contrast, United States officials largely ignored the Arctic until the outbreak of World War II, when military commanders quickly grasped the strategic importance of this region. Anxious that the Arctic might become a literal battleground between East and West by 1947, as the Cold War began, Pentagon leaders funded vast northern research programs, including in strategically located Greenland. Canadian leaders while appreciating the national security concerns of its powerful southern neighbor were even more concerned with maintaining sovereignty over its northern territories and gaining knowledge to assist its northern economic ambitions. Norway and Sweden, as smaller states, faced distinct challenges. With strong claims to Arctic heritage but limited resources, leaders of these states sought to create independent research strategies while, especially in the case of Norway, protecting their geopolitical interests in relation to the Soviet Union and the U.S. This article provides the first internationally comparative study of the multiple economic, military, political, and strategic factors that motivated scientific activities and programs in the far north, from the interwar period through World War II and the Cold War, when carefully coordinated, station-based research programs were introduced. The production of knowledge about Arctic's physical environment including its changing climate had little resemblance either to ideas of science-based 'progress,' or responses to perceived environmental concerns. Instead, it demonstrates that strategic military, economic, geopolitical, and national security concerns influenced and shaped most science undertakings, including those of the International Polar Year of 1932-1933 and the following polar year, the International Geophysical Year of 1957-1958.

    Social Movements and Ecosystem Services-the Role of Social Network Structure in Protecting and Managing Urban Green Areas in Stockholm2008Inngår i: Ecology & society, ISSN 1708-3087, E-ISSN 1708-3087, Vol. 13, nr 2Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Exploitation and degradation of urban green areas reduce their capacity to sustain ecosystem services. In protecting and managing these areas, research has increasingly focused on actors in civil society. Here, we analyzed an urban movement of 62 civil-society organizations-from user groups, such as boating clubs and allotment gardens, to culture and nature conservation groups-that have protected the Stockholm National Urban Park. We particularly focused on the social network structure of the movement, i.e., the patterns of interaction between movement organizations. The results reveal a core-periphery structure where core and semi-core organizations have deliberately built political connections to authorities, whereas the periphery gathers all user groups involved in day-to-day activities in the park. We show how the core-periphery structure has facilitated collective action to protect the park, but we also suggest that the same social network structure might simultaneously have constrained collaborative ecosystem management. In particular, user groups with valuable local ecological knowledge have not been included in collaborative arenas. Our case points out the inherent double-nature of all social networks as they facilitate some collective actions, yet constrain others. The paper argues for incorporating social network structure in theories and applications of adaptive governance and co-management.

    Northscapes: History, Technology and the Making of Northern Environments2013Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea of North is a multivalent concept. It is geographical, but more than just Arctic; it is both an imagined space and a place of harsh challenges. These challenges resonate with each other across the northern world, shaping different areas of the North in many similar ways. Distinctive northern environments are created as humans adapt to climatic and geographic conditions while simultaneously adapting the landscapes to their own needs with technologies, trade, and social organization. This collection of essays argues that the unique environments of the North have been borne of the relationship between humans and nature. Approaching the topic through the lens of environmental history, the contributors examine a broad range of geographies, including those of Iceland and other islands in the Northern Atlantic, Sweden, Finland, Russia, the Pacific Northwest, and Canada, over a time span ranging from CE 800 to 2000. Northscapes is bound together by the intellectual project of investigating the North both as an imagined and mythologized space and as an environment shaped by human technology. The North offers a valuable analytical framework that surpasses nation-states and transgresses political and historical borders. This volume develops rich explorations of the entanglements of environmental and technological history in the northern regions of the globe.

    Melting the glacial curtain: the politics of Scandinavian-Soviet networks in the geophysical field sciences between two polar years, 1932/33-1957/582014Inngår i: Journal of Historical Geography, ISSN 0305-7488, E-ISSN 1095-8614, Vol. 44, 44-59 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    While providing a brief background of the development of Scandinavian Russian relations in the polar sciences in the early 20th century, this paper focuses on the period from the 1930s when the Swedish geographer Hans Ahlmann and Norwegian oceanographer Harald Ulrik Sverdrup developed a curiosity of the Soviet Union as a field for the practice of Arctic science. Visit of the Arctic Research Institute in Leningrad in 1934 further enhanced Ahlmann's sympathy and in 1935 he co-founded the Society for the Promotion of Cultural and Scientific Relations between Sweden and the Soviet Union. After further wartime collaboration, Ahlmann returned to the Soviet Union in 1958 and 1960 as president of the International Union of Geographical Sciences. Using his longtime Soviet contacts to penetrate the Iron Curtain, Ahlmann became a key figure in maintaining the flow of scientific information between East and West. New materials from archives open perspectives for better understanding of the international connections and transfer of knowledge in geophysical and geographical science in its formative period. The key message from this paper is that while tensions did exist and presented scientists with differential loyalties, they still managed to find ways to undertake fruitful scientific collaborations even under political restraints and could sometimes play political roles.

    The Urban Anthropocene: Lessons for Sustainability from the Environmental History of Constantinople2010Inngår i: The Urban Mind: Cultural and Environmental Dynamics / [ed] Paul J.J.

    Abstract [en]

    Constantinople is a city whose origin can be traced back to the establishment of Greek cities and colonies in early antiquity. Eventually it became the capital of the East Roman Empire, and since then its major role in the region has not diminished, whether under the rule of Byzantine emperors or Ottoman sultans. For more than 2000 years the city and its inhabitants have endured numerous changes and crises. Plague, war and economic regression have at times reduced its population to only a fraction of the previous size. The city has been subject to numerous sieges, the longest lasting eight years! Conquered only once prior to the major transformation in 1453, the city flourished again after each crisis and today it is still an important centre in this part of the world, on the border between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. 

    How could Constantinople maintain its leading position for such a long time, after suffering so many crises? In this chapter, the authors emphasize that the ability of a city to survive under stress has its fundamental origins in how the city was organized and maintained. Special focus is put on the organizational and ecosystem services aspects of urban agriculture in the city. The authors explore how the inhabitants of the ancient city of Constantinople managed to maintain a resilient food supply system. Constantinople differs in many ways from our modern cities, which are dependent on resources from a global hinterland that are transported using fossil fuels, and thus it can serve as an educational example for our time. At its first peak during the 6th century it was dependent on a complex grain transport system with ships travelling all the way to North Africa. This system collapsed in conjunction with the Arab expansion in the 7th century, and the collapse became a major part of a long recession that profoundly affected the city. That the city nonetheless survived cannot be explained by any single factor. The answer must be sought through a holistic perspective in which the variety of resource assets is seen as playing a major role. A particularly interesting aspect, related to today’s global transport system, is the urban agriculture system within and just outside the city walls. The walls did not constitute the limits for a densely populated area. They rather delimited an area with dispersed “sub-communities” and numerous acres of, for example, orchards and vineyards. These areas could apparently sustain the population with a considerable amount of food and probably were important for the city’s ability to withstand sieges and periods of food shortage. This system was continuous and was maintained by the inhabitants’ living memory as well as by important institutions. In our society, where the supply of food is considered as something obvious, one can question whether we lack memory as well as preparations for similar crises despite the fact that the food supply crisis of the Second World War is only 65 years behind us.

    Research Aid Revisited: a historically grounded analysis of future prospects and policy options2017Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This report examines the historical path as well as current tendencies of the Swedish government’s support to development research and research capacity building in low-income countries, or simply “research aid”. It also presents some ideas for future policy options.

    Research aid was institutionalised in the 1970s as part of Sweden’s growing ambitions on the international development aid scene. This ambition was driven by several motives, such as international solidarity but also economic and foreign policy motives, and can be understood as part of a movement to find, and strengthen, Sweden’s geopolitical niche in the Cold War landscape. It also tapped into longer global political movements on civilisation, decolonisation and development, as well as international scientific discourses on economic growth, over-population and environmentalism. The process which led up to the establishment of SAREC (Swedish Agency for Research Cooperation with Developing Countries ) in 1975 echoed many of the ideas and initiatives at international level in the 1960s, mainly within the sphere of the United Nations, that underscored the importance of science and technology for development. In short, science and research capacity was needed to meet challenges in the South, which was seen as lagging behind in terms economic and social development level.

    A Swedish framework for research aid developed in the formative period of the 1970s and early 1980s, which after that has largely persisted:

    • bilateral cooperation for capacity building based on partnerships with Swedish universities, PhD and Master education through sandwich-programmes, and infrastructure support;
    • support to global and regional research organisations, with a handful of organisations getting the bulk of the funding;
    • research in Sweden of relevance to developing countries through a science council function, where a handful of universities attract most of the funding;
    • a relatively stable funding regime with 3-4 % of government aid allocations going to research, divided into streams of 25-30% to bilateral support, 50-60% to global and regional organisations, and 10-15% to Swedish university research. In relative terms, a downward funding trend is noted over the past decade.

    Right from the beginning, the outspoken aim was to take a point of departure in the needs and demands of developing countries, and to give priority to developing research capacity. Supporting political and economic independence in the South had become one of the key objectives of Swedish aid, and increasing the research capacity was well in line with this. From around 1985 the framework was largely in place, and SAREC entered a pragmatic growth phase which seems to have lasted well into the 2000s. The main framework, and the underlying thinking, in Sweden’s research aid model have since then not been substantially altered. Within the framework certain changes, adaptations and initiatives have been made to improve performance over time. Several organisational changes have taken place, notably the merging of SAREC and SIDA in 1995 and the transfer of responsibility for grants to Swedish universities from Sida to Swedish Research Council VR in 2013. Both SAREC’s and Sida’s research aid activities have enjoyed a good reputation and from what we have seen, many evaluations have been positive.

    Our historical analysis exposes some contradictions in the early Swedish research aid. First: research aid was not in demand from Sweden’s partner countries in the 1970s. As Sweden’s policy of country-programming dictated that aid should only be given where there was an expressed demand for it, SAREC was formed as an independent agency in order to bypass this policy. Second: while the focus on capacity building in the South has been strong, less than 30% of the spending has gone to the bilateral programmes which make up the main platform for capacity building. And third: the impact on the Swedish research arena at large appears to have been small despite the fact that a re-orientation of research capacity in Sweden was a stated objective early on. At policy level, over the years we have seen very few attempts for a closer alignment and coordination between Sweden’s research aid and national research policy. This third contradiction has continued to be visible even after the adoption of the Policy for Global Development (PGU) in 2003, although we note some moves towards increased integration in the past few years, notably the closer involvement of VR and the recent revitalisation of the PGU.

    The key questions we raise in this report are not just about why and how SAREC and Sida worked the way they did until now. They also concern how the mission of research aid can be conceived from now on. In our study, one can fairly easy discern that the Swedish model for research aid was formed to respond to certain human, developmental, scientific and political needs of the 1970s. It is also quite clear that since then, the geopolitical map as well as the global problem catalogue has changed dramatically. Essentially, the problem at hand is not any longer, at least not only, about poor countries “catching up” with the rich countries. We argue that as humankind’s challenges have become increasingly of shared and international character (climate change, global flows of refugees, security, shared natural resources etc) we need a shared regime of knowledge production, one which does not presuppose a one-way transmission of knowledge or academic know-how from Swedish or international research organisations to the poor countries.

    A new model for international research collaboration is needed which goes far beyond the current scope and volume of research aid. Such collaboration, we have good reasons to believe, will benefit the global South, the entire Swedish research and innovation arena as well as the wider society, and may hold potential for increasing Sweden’s competitiveness in the - more sustainable - future.  We propose that such a new and wider model for collaboration is built on the understanding of a world where problems and challenges are shared, although unevenly and unpredictably distributed. In this world, the production and distribution of wealth and its environmental, health and social consequences is rapidly becoming a more critical and pervasive concern than the remaining and clearly deeply distressing cases of poverty. Building capacity in the global South will for the foreseeable future continue to be an important task. But in this current world the research agenda should be increasingly shaped by managing and mitigating the risks following from wealth creation and how it affects the very idea of development in the twenty-first century. The question of wealth is rather unconventional for development aid, but it must be asked seriously in a world where economic growth is spreading and technology-driven on a pace that seems to continue unabated. How can global wealth become sustainable and at the same time be promoted and grow in low-income countries? Taking this question seriously and carving out a responsible way forward would imply an increased attention on a new set of issues. We suggest that it is high time for a revitalised and bold discussion regarding Sweden’s future role in knowledge development in the global South, which could take its point of departure in the following propositions:

    Challenges and problems are shared. Moving away from the notion of ‘development’ as an issue for the global South, today’s and tomorrow’s global problems affect also the global North. As we now increasingly take stock of a supercomplex world, the idea of research aid will have to change.

    Global challenges are local. In dealing with local and regional manifestations of the broader, often global challenges, it may be called for research aid to take a different form, engaging researchers and institutions in the developing world in broader constellations.

    Wealth is becoming a greater problem than poverty. While the 2030 agenda to eliminate poverty must continue, the questions of transgression of planetary boundaries, environmental justice, wealth and welfare distribution open up vast new fields of global enquiry. Future research aid would take as its cue the challenges rising in a world with much less poverty and much more wealth.

    Research agendas should be formed in dialogue. Common agendas need to be reconsidered in a South-North dialogue supported by new alliances of change agents in universities, funding agencies, the business community, recipient countries, international fora, in civil society, and the EU.   

    The knowledge base is widening. Integrative and challenge-driven approaches bridging multiple disciplines, including the social sciences and humanities, that have hitherto played marginal roles in research aid, are needed to deal with the supercomplexity challenges of the emerging world order.

    Institutions remain essential. The research capacity of institutional actors such as universities is set to be a critical lever for low-income countries to participate in, and benefit from, the massively expanding global knowledge production. Sweden can here build upon its sustained track record of supporting institution building in the South.

    Change of scale is required. The massive challenges we are facing at combined planetary, regional and local scales require responses of a completely different scale and character than what aid has been able to muster within the - predominantly nation-based – paradigm of development aid.

    Research aid should be linked closer to knowledge and research policy at large. Research aid can just be one small part of a wider agenda to address global challenges, implying a much closer alignment between research policy and research aid. History demonstrates the difficulties of effecting this alignment, which now prompts an organized re-thinking, a re-structuring of funding streams, and a re-engagement within the domain of politics.

    Research Aid Revisited: Understanding Swedish research aid in the current state of world development through a historically grounded analysis2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, which builds on an ongoing study for the Expert Group for Aid Studies (EBA), we take a fresh look at Swedish development research on a longer time scale. Swedish development research has, by and large, followed the same model since the 1970s. With a focus on building research capacity in the South, this model reflected the larger narrative of how Sweden promoted emancipation of poor countries. Historical records however show that SAREC was formed as an independent agency to bypass aid priorities set by recipient governments. The Swedish government also ignored international calls for re-directing national research priorities towards developing countries by confining development research into one of many sub-themes of aid. The SAREC model was largely shaped by the then prevailing ideologies and by the Cold War political landscape, a landscape gone since decades. Today humanity faces challenges – climate, biodioversity, migration etc - that require cooperation between rich and poorer countries at an entirely different scale. In this emerging global landscape of shared problems, Swedish development research risks becoming an atavism. We argue that Sweden’s development research needs re-thinking against the entire research agenda, against an updated understanding of geopolitical changes and the emerging global challenges, and against our historical experience.

    Science, sport and landscape: The development of high-altitude training methods after 1945.Manuskript (preprint) (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, most elite endurance athletes use high-altitude training to some extent. For at least the last 40 years, it has been linked to increased performance. But how was high-altitude training established as a means of improving performance? And how did the scientific approach to altitude differ from the traditional, natural valuation of mountains as a site for training? In this essay, these questions are addressed.High-altitude training was introduced in sports in the post-war period. During the 1960s, it became a highly contested method, with controversies between scientists, athletes, doctors, sport organizations and coaches. What ideas about altitude and performance were important in this process? What type of scientific hypotheses led scientists and sport practitioners towards increasing high-altitude training? Interestingly, those within sports who rejected the scientific, ‘machine-like’ training methods also often valued the mountains. Famous Swedish coach Gösta Olander is one example. He was the most influential protagonist of the natural training method in Sweden, and his base was in Vålådalen (in Jämtland, near Östersund and Åre). Both Swedish (e.g. Sixten Jernberg, Gunder Hägg) and international athletes (e.g. Michel Jazy and Michel Bernard) came to Vålådalen. The fresh mountain air and scenic surroundings were important as a place for training camps, but scientists later demystified the mountains via scientific explanations about increased oxygen uptake and increasing hemoglobin levels in the blood. Vålådalen became a center not only for natural training, but also for scientific monitoring, testing and evaluation.And the setting of international standards regarding high-altitude training had a political aspect, as the issue was addressed when white runners from low altitude were threatened by the results of mainly runners from high altitude countries like Kenya and Ethiopia.Focusing on the Swedish case, we will analyze the scientific interest in high-altitude training for sports. Especially, we will study the links between science, military and sports.

    Walking on the Shoulders of Giants: Historical Mountain Trails as Management Tools?2017Inngår i: The Routledge International Handbook of Walking Studies / [ed] C. M. Hall, Y. Ram, N. Shoval, New York: Routledge, 2017, 330-339 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Walking in mountains is a way of transport in varied terrain and a means to enhance nature experiences and deepen landscape relations. It is also one of the most popular activities in Swedish outdoor life as well as among international tourists. Mobility has over time and for multiple reasons resulted in a network of trails and pathways – a ‘mobility heritage’. However, this heritage is not static but continuously transformed through new needs and uses, and as such it is a vital component in any reform towards a more sustainable landscape management by and for governing bodies, NGOs, and other interest groups.

     

    Despite multiple users and uses, trails are often discrete, small-scale and with marginal direct effects on local ecology and landscape, although exceptions also exist. However, the long history of multiple actor use of trails and landscapes alongside them, and the reasons and interests behind their location and maintenance, has profoundly affected landscape perceptions over time.

     

    We argue that trails can be used as a tool to engage different interests and to minimize conflicts between different users, while aiming to enhance landscape values for all users. This is highly relevant to various forms of nature conservation, Sami reindeer herding, recreation and tourism. We aim to provide deeper knowledge about trails, conceptually and about their roles, functions, and how this may relate to future management. Against a background of theoretical, historical and empirical approaches to pathways and walking we present our topic through the lens of Swedish mountain trails, with a special focus on Jämtland County. Can the interests of visiting hikers and multiple local and regional interests come to co-exist in a sustainable way by using trails as one main tool?

    The movement heritage: Scale, place, and pathscapes in Anthropocene tourism2015Inngår i: Tourism and the Anthropocene / [ed] Martin Gren and Edward Huijbens, London: Routledge, 2015, 131-151 s.Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Anthropogenic change is large-scale. But the Anthropocene is also a result of small-scale, local landscape use and change. These changes and uses are often based in movement. How do movements (sport, outdoor life, tourism etc.) affect landscapes physically and mentally? In the Anthropocene, these questions are increasingly important to answer.

    Mobility in the landscape is under-theorized. The cultural history of walking, with Rousseau, Austen, Thoreau, Muir and others have been discussed (e.g. Solnit 2001). Understandings of landscape monuments are often tied to nationalism (Lowenthal 1998, 2008, Hettne et al 2006) and are generally limited to monuments within traditional areas of cultural and natural heritage (buildings, infrastructure, rare species). But the importance of movement as a practice for understanding landscape and ”life worlds” has also been underlined (Ingold 2000, 2011, Hastrup 2009). The movement heritage, in terms of skiing tracks, hiking trails etc. has to no small degree shaped understanding of the landscape. We investigate how these landscapes of mobility have been and can be articulated, and how they can contribute to a sustainable tourism in the Anthropocene.

    We seek to combine this growing understanding of cultural heritage aspects of landscape with theories from the modern landscapes of bodily movement. These landscapes have been labeled portable (Qviström 2013), but in contrast to this portability, the landscapes of movement we focus on are not portable. Instead, their protection is based on their cultural history and emotional value. Is it possible to combine economic and ecological interests in tourism in the Anthropocene?

    A reluctant Arctic citizen?: On Sweden's role in Arctic science and geopolitics in the 20th century and heroptions for the 21st2012Annet (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden had a very active role in the early scientific exploration of the European Arctic up until WorldWar I and remained an active industrial stakeholder in Spitsbergen until around 1930. From then on Sweden went into a long period of comparatively low activity in the Arctic, but with interesting exceptions. When official Swedish interest was renewed in the 1980s science was foregrounded and other policy areas kept on a low profile. Today Sweden holds the chairmanship of the Arctic Council and presented in May 2011 for the first time an official Arctic policy. How should we interpret Sweden's Arctic politics? Is the low profile likely to change, and if so -- what policy options are open?
