Ann-Sofie Gremaud undertakes the postdoctoral project Geographies of Crisis. Post-industrial landscapes. The historical scope is the recent decades, and focus is on issues concerning urbanization, economic- and environmental crises, globalization and marks of industrialisation on the landscape in selected academic articles and works of art – primarily photography – from Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. These products reflect the relationship between nature and society in the current cultural changes where natural resources are associated with purity as well as industrial exploitation.
