Greenland as a case of Postcolonialism

  • Gad, Ulrik Pram (PI)

    Project Details


    While the Arctic seems to gradually open up in regards to commerce, minerals extraction and possible international conflict, Greenland continues to be decolonizing only in slow-motion. By analysing how Greenland is different as a case of post-colonialism, this project will contribute both to our understanding of Greenland's approach to new possibilities and to the development of postcolonial theory. The project analyses the interplay between arctic materiality, varying versions of the Danish imperial project as well as Greenlandic resistance, by zooming in on shifting linkages between space, time and agency. This post.doc. project is financed by Carlsbergfondet. Publications in 2017-19.
