“Voices from the North. Exploring research on resource extraction, local communities and built environments in Northern Sweden”

The workshop is organised by APECS Sweden (Association of Polar Early-Career Scientists) at Luleå University of Technology.

It will explore the process of resource extraction, which has been shaping Northern Sweden both physically and socially, from a local perspective. Three speakers from Luleå University of Technology will present their ongoing research on the local context and on the interrelations among communities, society and built environment in Norrbotten.Their insights on power relations, indigenous perspectives and built heritage will spark the debate. How is resource extraction shaping the space and the society of the region?

How do different stakeholders interact and which roles do indigenous peoples and the historic built environment play within these ongoing transformations? It is expected that these and other questions will emerge and evolve with the contribution of the participants, especially among early-career researchers.
