The proposed project will investigate the combined impact ofanthropogenic environmental change – specifically, spatialdevelopments and climate change – and new paradigms ofanimal or environmental governance on traditional forms ofanimal practice and human-animal relations in the NorwegianArctic. Its guiding hypothesis is that current regional patternsof environmental change are combining with emergentnormative discourses on animals and nature – e.g. animalwelfare, wildlife management, biodiversity conservation – tomodify and displace existing concepts of animal personhoodin local practice, while at the same time establishingconditions for the emergence of new forms of human-animalrelationship. The aim of the the project is to identify, describeand theorize these emergent relationships, analyse theirimplications for environmental governance and policy in theregion and, on the basis of this, develop a programme forfurther research. The project will draw on and expand the scope of my earlier doctoral fieldwork, in the same region – on the modernization of indigenous reindeer pastoralism – to include other forms of local animal practice, focusing particularly on contemporary forms of hunting. In so doing, the project will bring together and synthesise several strands of related research – biodiversity, ecological conservation, climate change – that I have been working on since completing my doctorate, and thus present an opportunity for me to fruitfully consolidate, develop and move forward my own research as a cohesive body of work.
