4th UiT Environmental Humanities / miljøhumaniora interest group meeting - What is Tromsø anyway?

The UiT Environmental Humanities / miljøhumaniora interest group is growing strong and happy to invite you to its 4th informal meeting!

Meeting Agenda: 

  • Following our discussions about the possibility of alternative mappings of Tromsø, in this meeting, participants are invited to bring pictures, video- and sound recordings, images, stories, poems, and other 'artefacts' from otherwise places, spaces and co/ntra-habitation in Tromsø, and then share reflections on these from their perspectives.

Our multiple hopes with this are to continue getting to know each other, the interests that bring us to miljøhumaniora, the perspectives we bring to it, to further develop our self-understanding as an emerging miljøhumaniora interest group, to engage with and reflect on our g/local context, and further explore the possibilities of a potential, collaborative countermapping of Tromsø. Such mapping and the question 'What is Tromsø anyway?' serves to trouble dominant understandings of the city and its surroundings, and so, inspire speculation about otherwise futures for 'samliv i nord'.

Inspiration for mapping projects can be found just about anywhere, including and maybe especially right outside your door. For those wishing something to read while doing the preparatory fieldwork for the 4th UiT miljøhumaniora meeting, the following might be of interest:
