Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

I teach and supervise students in human geography, including philosophy and history of geography and landscape studies. My research is mainly in the field of landscape studies, addressing issues related to landscape practices and policies. I am interested in the moralities produced by different landscape practices as well as how different moral notions produce a variety of landscapes.

In recent years I have moved into debates related to cultural heritage management, outdoor recreation and the current political and managerial debate about ‘ecosystem services’.

I am currently leading a 4 year project on 'Climate change and natural hazards: the geography of community resilience in Norway' (funded by  Klimaforsk, the Research Council of Norway, NOK 9 mill, 2014-2018).

I have also taken an interest in the production of geographical knowledge and have published on the power geometries of geographical knowledge.
