DO BEAVERS NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE ATLANTIC SALMON AND SEA TROUT RESOURCE?

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and sea trout (Salmo trutta) are an important economic, recreational, and ecological resource in the European Atlantic and Baltic seaboard, from northern Norway to Portugal. In economic terms, the worth of a single salmon and a single sea-trout has been assessed at €4273 and €593. The salmon and sea trout fishery on the River Spey alone contributes €13.5 million to household incomes annually. Eurasian beavers (Castor fiber), once largely extirpated in Europe, are now recolonising the salmon and sea trout range. Though beavers represent one of the major success stories of modern European conservation, their return to rivers holding economically and socially important salmon and sea trout resources is of concern because beaver dams can block fish movements, especially migrations to breeding grounds, and remove freshwater habitat. By altering the habitat use, survival, and growth of these fishes beavers may impact fish production. Although the potential for beavers to influence salmon and sea trout is very high, this phenomenon is largely unstudied in Europe leaving a knowledge gap for management of growing beaver populations. We propose to conduct a thorough study addressing this European scale knowledge gap based in Norway, through research and transfer of skills by an experienced N. American researcher which will create long-term collaborations. Norway is currently unique in having both an anadromous salmonid population of major economic and social importance, and a large Eurasian beaver population. The fellowship will bring a researcher at the forefront of her field (studying the impact of N. American beavers on Pacific salmon) to Europe, where many scientists will benefit from her knowledge of the field. This project is timely due to the continuing success of beaver recolonisation and extremely relevant due to the lack of data regarding the strong potential for beavers to impact important Atlantic salmon and sea trout fisheries.

"Race, identity, exclusion and belonging in higher education: Personal narratives and classroom discourse"

Year 2013
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'This project informs our understanding of how issues related to race and racialization are constructed through the use of language in higher education settings in Europe, using Norway as a case example. Study 1 compares race and racialization in classroom talk (discourse) in 2-4 university courses, both traditional lectures and dialogue-based courses. Study 2 explores personal stories (narratives) of university students, professors and staff from racial minority groups, creating new spaces for often-silenced voices. In a methodologically innovative move, the two studies are placed in ‘conversation,’ to understand how race and racialization discourse and personal narratives can ‘talk’ to each other to reveal the workings of ideology, agency and resistance. Based on previous research, the researcher anticipates race and racialization discourse to be hidden under more explicit talk about immigration, religion and nation. Higher education serves as a ‘laboratory’ for examining these issues. Although race and racialization discourse has been studied in schools and educational policy, there is a gap in higher education research in this area. Universities are important because the ideas developed and propagated in higher education influence the broader social context: university students are democratic participants who go on to take positions of power and academics shape public discourse. Finally, Norway is a strong case example for at least two reasons. First, Norway is one of the last countries in Europe to transition to a ‘multicultural’ state. Second, Norway’s wealth has largely protected the country from the economic hardship that has affected much of Europe, so it provides an opportunity to understand how race and racialization discourse is constructed in relatively low-stress circumstances. The Norwegian case can be used as a comparison to explore how issues of race and racialization are constructed in Europe and relate to minority residents’ personal narratives.'

Images in Exile:Gender and representations among Syrian Kurdish women in Norway

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project Images in Exile (IMEX) addresses the current refugee crisis and its implications for Syrian Kurdish women in Europe. It challenges images about Muslim women, who are often the subject of debates on the supposed dichotomy between an imagined secular progressive West and religious backwards East. Kurdish women disrupt this dichotomy through an alternative portrayal in global media. Whereas Kurds were previously often pictured as terrorists, backward, and conservative, they are now presented as courageous fighters against, and victims of, Islamic terrorism; and as progressive forces that include women in their ranks. Ideas about progressive, feminist and secular forms of governance are strongly developed in Kurdish political thought, and central in local self-representations. However, media representations and political ideology often differ from social realities on the ground. Going beyond these representations, this study will investigate Kurdish women’s experiences in a rapidly changing socio-political context. It aims at developing better insights into migrant women’s integration and participation in European societies. IMEX thus directly responds to an important policy priority of the H2020 work programme, and targets a better gender and equality balance. Building on extensive research experience in the Middle East and Europe, and the knowledge of Kurdish, IMEX will carry out field research among refugees and migrant organizations in Norway. Methods include narrative interviews with 40 women, focus group interviews, and action research through the set-up of a photo exhibition. The host organization is the Centre for Gender Research at Oslo University, a leading Gender institute in the Nordic region. Dissemination is directed towards high academic quality and policy development. IMEX strongly contributes to the researcher’s career prospects and to the broadening of the Centre’s research agenda, and responds to an urgent societal concern.

New speakers and use of Russian in the Northern Norway

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The NEW_WAY project will look at trajectories across the lifespan among Russian-speaking linguistic actors, and on the role of speaking/writing Russian in the political economy of Northern Norway around the Russian-Norwegian border. With the end of Cold War and implementation of more flexible border policies, Northern Norway, as other regions neighbouring with ex-USSR, got placed into the heart of geopolitics, global migration and sea trade, security and environmental crises. In the two decades after the Warsaw Pact dissolution, use and acquisition of Russian by different social actors, including speakers of other languages, has renewed its significance in the multilingual economy of the region. With this MSCA action, I would bring my competence on biographical research, knowledge of Russian and expertise on Russian-speaking migrant communities to complement the Norwegian research team. I wish to expand the biographical workshops methods with nexus analysis supervised by the world-renowned expert in nexus analysis. I will gain understanding of Northern borderland multilingual policies and practices in order to reveal deep-running social processes present and past (e.g. legal recognition, language investment and commodification, identity and community building etc.) with implications for social cohesion and peaceful neighbouring policy across other borderlands in Europe, as well as with potential for theory building and terminology creation. The project is expected to open ways to understanding the dynamics of decision-making that multilingual speakers undertake in investing into and building their individual language repertoires. Building from multi-sited ethnographic and biographical accounts, the project has a potential to construct a holistic perspective on multilingual practices and decision-making. The resulting picture goes beyond the sum of its elements and will inform critical rethinking of the concepts of community, diaspora, minority,majority and language.

Theorizing the Evolution of European Migration Systems (THEMIS)

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Data on how patterns of migration to Europe have developed. The THEMIS international project team investigated what makes people decide to migrate, why some of those initial moves to Europe result in the formation of significant migration systems, and why some migration processes simply tail off or stagnate. This involved a comparative study of the evolution of migrant groups following different migration trajectories from several regions of three origin countries (Brazil, Morocco and Ukraine) to selected areas in four destination countries (UK, Norway, the Netherlands and Portugal).

Blingual Literacy and Input Knowledge Outcomes: Tracing Heritage Language Bilingual Development

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Bilingual Literacy and Input Negotiates Knowledge Outcomes: Tracing Heritage Language Bilingual Development This project significantly adds to a burgeoning—roughly 2 and half decades long—sub-field of bilingualism studies, namely Heritage Language Bilingualism (HLB). We propose a novel approach that combines offline and online methods and focuses on a severely understudied, yet crucially important age group of heritage speaker (HS) bilinguals in an effort to fill crucial gaps in the available literature. We will examine the role and weight of key variables that (potentially) contribute to ubiquitous differences between these populations and matched monolingual counterparts. To this end, we capitalize on the relatively unique opportunity Turkish provides as a heritage language acquired in its diaspora in the EU (the snapshot will be Norway and Germany). Having access to balanced populations in both Norway and Germany and their respective multiple subgroups that differ in key variables (e.g. access or not to literacy education in Turkish) we will for the first time have a fairer chance to converge on an understanding of how and why HLB presents so differently from monolingualism and even other cases of bilingualism. Because HLB, deals with the development and maintenance of minority languages spoken in the home and small ethnic communities in a larger national context, it fits very well with the imperatives of the EU and its commitment to fostering cross-cultural integration while guaranteeing the rights of all to maintain their heritage languages and cultures. Understanding how to best fulfill language related EU imperatives and commitments is inherently related to understanding the cognitive, social and linguistic sciences behind HLB.
