University Researcher, Coordinator of the Arctic Studies Programme at the University of Lapland.
Anna has specialized in Arctic anthropology since 1995. The current research focuses on how changes in water-ice-land interface transform human interaction with the environment. Within this field she investigates the social life of climate change paradigms (sustainability, resilience and adaptation) as applied in different economic sectors (reindeer herding, cow breeding, fisheries and tourism), indigenous livelihoods, local and regional agenda for change, and imagined and lived cold spaces/places. Her interests lie also in the linguistic and symbolic expressions of indigenous culture, cross-border relations, food and migration studies. Field studies have covered different regions across the Arctic - in Fennoscandia (Finland, Norway, Iceland); Russia, Canada -, and in the Sub-Antarctic (Tierra del Fuego, Santa Cruz, Argentina).
