Min forskningsinteresse har vært konsentrert rundt fiskerisamfunn med særlig vekt på kulturelle og kjønnsrelasjonelle aspekter i forhold til lønna og ulønna arbeid og til politikk. Utgangspunktet mitt har vært forskning på steder i kyst-Finnmark og ved store innsjøer i Tanzania og Nord Kamerun.

Gunhild Hoogensen Gjørv is Professor of Critical Peace and Conflict Studies at the UiT The Arctic University of Norway.

Keyword research interests: grayzone/hybrid threats and warfare, civil-military conflicts, counterinsurgency (COIN), civilian agency, human security, Arctic security, intersectional methodologies

 

Born in the Netherlands and raised in Canada, she obtained her education in Canada at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec (Bachelor in Science, Biology) and at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta (Masters of Arts and PhD in Political Science). Hoogensen Gjørv has taught for over 25 years, and supervised students at the masters and PhD levels for almost 20 years. Her teaching is heavily informed by her research projects. 

Hoogensen Gjørv’s research has interrogated the interactions and tensions between perceptions of state and human security in a variety of contexts, with a particular focus on civil-military interaction and Arctic perceptions of security. She is concerned with representations and performances of civilian agency, drawing upon intersectional approaches to better understand agency, “everyday” security, and possibilities for peace. Due to her work on civil-military interaction, she was one of ten experts selected as a member of the Norwegian national evaluation committee to examine Norway’s efforts in Afghanistan. Hoogensen Gjørv has led a number of projects examining human security in the context of Arctic extractive industries and the relationships between states, industry, and people in the Arctic. Her focus on security in the Arctic ensured that she was among the first awarded a Fulbright Arctic Initiative fellowship (2015-2016), coinciding with the US chairmanship of the Arctic Council, after which she was awarded the Nansen Professorship at the University of Akureyri (2017-2018).

Gunhild Hoogensen Gjørv currently leads the project Resilient Civilians examining civilian agency in population-centric and hybrid warfare scenarios (partially funded by the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme), and recently completed a project investigating the trajectories of indigenous territorial rights in Russia (funded by the Research Council of Norway). She is a partner and core theme leader for the EU-HYBNET project, a European network of researchers and practitioners focused on the mitigation of hybrid threats, as well as a partner with the THREAT DEFUSER project examining the ways in which language is manipulated for the purposes of disinformation.
Hoogensen Gjørv serves on various boards including within the Norwegian Research Council, the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, and the International Arctic Science Committee.
Her book publications include "Understanding Civil-Military Interaction: Lessons Learned from the Norwegian Model" (Ashgate, 2014) and (co-editor and contributor) "Environmental and Human Security in the Arctic" (Routledge, 2014), and most recently, (co-editor and contributor) of “Routledge Handbook of Arctic Security” (Routledge, 2020). She has published in Review of International Studies, Security Dialogue, Political Psychology, International Studies Review, among other journals, as well as written numerous book chapters.

My research is driven by the wish to analyze power relations in the narratives that infuse societies both in history, present and future times. Being a feminist scholar, I have broadened my focus from analyzing the existing stories about one specific historic actor (phD) and re-narrating it, to scrutinizing dominant tropes in popular Western culture. My aim is to help to unpack the potential of the humanities to contribute to a better understanding of the cultural aspects of the current environmental crisis. With my actual research, I move beyond persistent Western narratives on environment and climate change, to understand how places can be understood also through embodied knowledges, and what impact this could have on the living and dying of humans and other than humans. My research draws from feminist and critical theories, and examines knowledges, places and relations. Wondering what knowledges become audible for whom and which not and for whom not, I try to think through sensory, artistic, local and Indigenous knowledges with a geographical focus on the North of Norway/Northern Sápmi. I am PI of Democratization of education (2021-24, funded by the HSL faculty, with Sarah Musubika). Moreover, I am leading WP 1 | Concepts of the Prestisje Project (NFR 281862, PC: Melina Duarte), WP 2 | Syllabi and classroom practices of IMPLISITT (NFR 321031, PI: Kjersti Fjørstoft) and serve as member of the advisory board of ECO_CARE (DIKU, PI: Margherita Paola Poto and Giulia Parole).

I mitt arbeid utforsker jeg måter vi kan leve sammen på til tross for ulikhet i alder, kjønn, funksjonsevne, nasjonalitet, etnisitet og/eller andre forskjellsskapende mekanismer. Spørsmål om hvordan vi kan fremme samhandling og integrasjon i samfunnet uten å standardisere levemåter står sentralt. Det er spørsmål som er særlig presserende for individer og grupper av mennesker som ikke har eller vil kunne ha mulighet til å leve opp til en gitt standard.

I min nåværende forskning retter jeg søkelyset mot personer som har utviklet kognitiv svikt i voksen alder, ofte i form av en demenssykdom, og spør hvordan hverdagslivet kan organiseres for å sikre at deres potensielle bidrag til samfunnsutviklingen aktualiseres og at deres medborgerskap opprettholdes. Det gjør jeg ved å  undersøke interaksjon og samhandling gjennom kreative prosesser og kunstnerisk aktivitet. Den metodologiske tilnærmingen er kvalitativ kunstbasert forskning, mens jeg teoretisk anvender sosiologiske perspektiver som Science and Technology Studies (STS), materiell feministisk teori og citizenship/medborgerskapsteori.

Jeg er litteraturforsker innenfor faget Engelsk og professor i humanistisk kjønnsforskning. Mine forskningsinteresser er konsentrert rundt to poler: for det første, reiselitteratur med vekt på kjønn og det nordlige; for det andre, kjønn og modernisme, med fokus på Virginia Woolfs forfatterskap. I perioden 2013–16 ledet jeg et internasjonalt forskningsprosjekt med tittelen Arctic Modernities, finansiert av NFRs Polarforskningsprogram. I tillegg til HSL-fakultetets kjernegruppe besto prosjektet av en gruppe nasjonale og internasjonale forskere, to i Norge og sju internasjonale (fra Danmark, Sverige, Finland, Canada, Tyskland og USA).

Prosjektet har bl.a. utgitt temanumre av Nordlit 35 (2015) og Acta Borealia 33,2 (2016).

Sammen med professor Beatrice Halsaa, Universitetet i Oslo, er jeg i perioden 2016–18 hovedredaktør for tidsskriftet NORA – Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research.
