Inger Birkeland

Associate Professor
University College of Southeast Norway
Participates in 1 Session
My professional background is human geography with MA and PhD from University of Oslo, Norway (2002). I have twenty years of experience in teaching and research in higher education, from human geography, teacher training (geography), tourism and cultural management and cultural studies. For the past four years I have been active in the European research network COST Action IS1007 Investigating Cultural Sustainability (2011-2015), where I have chaired a working group on theoretical and conceptual work. My research interest in the Action has been to explore theoretically the role of culture in sustainable development. Overall research experience is nature-society relations, people-place relations, place pedagogies and place-conscious teaching and learning, cultural sustainability, and climate change transformation through heritage-making, and particularly relating to uses of industrial heritage. Among my publications are one book on place- and self-making in nature-based tourism among international travellers to Northern Norway (“Making Place, Making Self” published by Ashgate in 2005) and a book on the role of culture and social learning for sustainable place planning in post-industrial region Rjukan and Notodden in Norway ("Kulturelle hjørnesteiner", Cappelen Damm Akademisk 2014). Ongoing project is a co-edited book, "Cultural Sustainability and the Nature-Culture Interface", to be published in Routledge Series in Culture and Sustainable Development.
