Dag Avango is Professor of History, specialized in history of technology and cultural heritage, with a focus on late modern society. His research is situated at the interface between archaeology and history, combining theoretical-methodological approaches from history, archaeology and science and technology studies, and exploring the role of people-thing interactions in processes of historical change. In his research, Avango has particularly dealt with the history and heritage of the Polar Regions – The Arctic and Antarctic – and the political and environmental history of natural resource extraction.
