Pre-defence by Naja Dyrendom Graugaard
This PhD project investigates the various sustainability narratives which relates to Inuit seal hunting in Greenland. Placed in and by the contemporary sealskin disputes and international anti-sealing pressures, the project relates kalaallit (Greenlandic) seal hunting to questions of Indigenous knowledge and alternative narratives, coloniality and decolonization.
The pre-defence starts with a presentation by Naja Dyrendom Graugaard followed by the discussant's comments and an open discussion. The pre-defence will be in English.
