PhD studentship: Identifying craftsmanship and local ecological knowledge in Nordic fisheries
During the last century the total number of fishers in nordic countries diminished dramatically. The loss of cultural capital that Nordic coastal fishers represent, i.e. 'their working knowledge' and skills, implies a tremendous setback for sustainable management of coastal sea- and landscapes. This PhD studentship aims to study the working knowledge of coastal fisheries, and to make this knowledge visible as cultural capital that can contribute to the sustainable management of Nordic coastal sea- and landscapes. Application deadline 2 May 2014.

Application deadline 2 May 2014.
