Berit is a political geographer and PhD-candidate at University of Tromsø. Her doctorate research focus on the imagining of the Arctic as a ‘peak relief’ in Norwegian oil politics, and competing economic and cultural visions of the future across scale through ethnographic fieldwork and interviews with industry elites and local stakeholders in Lofoten and Vesterålen (the most contested region in the north). Røst in Lofoten will be one of the key sites in the HERA-project that will explore and visualize autonomy in sub-Arctic coastal tourism.
