Britt Kramvig (NO) is an ethnographic researcher within the field of culture and planning and is a professor at the UiT: Finnmark faculty in the Department of Tourism and Northern Studies. She takes on a postcolonial position inspired by indigenous, feminist and STS (Science and Technology Studies) debates and has undertaken ethnographic work, and written and made films on a range of different topics relating to indigeneity, gender and place as well as technology and innovation. Kramvig insists on working across disciplinary boundaries, as people of the North perceive boundaries differently.
