    Research interests

    Britt Kramvig is Professor at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. She has an interdisciplinary orientation and practice collaborative methodologies in all of her research. She work with concepts such as Indigenous ontologies, ecologies, aesthetics and storytelling. In addition she are working with tourism as a world making practice and how sustainability are performed locally. Ongoing publication efforts engage with everyday practices of reconciliation, memory and landscape – through research in the archive of the Sámi medical expert Knut Lunde.  In several publications she argue that we should not merely focus on stories as products, but also on storytelling as an intersection in reciprocity. Storytelling can therefore inform an emergent politics of memory and enact landscapes of remembrance. This emphasizes the importance of not only the substance of the stories, but also the very act of participating in a shared event. It also emphasizes how this event brings our attention to our sense of being with-others, so promoting relation-weaving and world-making in which the past and the future are recalled as well as remade. For that reason she have been engaged in several creative documentaries, such as Dreamland and Firekeepers and have for long been working with Sámi artists. 

    She has been co-editing the book Recognition, Reconciliation and Restoration: Applying a Postcolonial Understanding in Social Work and Healing, and  co-written publication is among others Decolonized Research-Storying Bringing Indigenous Ontologies and Care into the Practices of Research Writing and Improving the relationships between Indigenous rights holders and researchers in the Arctic: an invitation for change in funding and collaboration.

    She is a fellow at the University of Durham connected to the project Exploring Arctic Soundscape and a member of the ongoing research project Mediating Arctic Geographies. Kramvig have a seat in the Norwegian Scientific Academy for Polar research and at IASC The International Arctic Science Committee.

    At UiT The Arctic University of Norway, she is a member of the research group Indigenous Voices (IVO) - Álgoálbmogii jienat
