  1. 1. Nature, culture, rights : exploring space for indigenous agency in protected area discourses

    Author : Elsa Reimerson; Camilla Sandström; Ulf Mörkenstam; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Protected areas; conservation; biological diversity; heritage; Indigenous peoples; Indigenous rights; Sami; discourse; postcolonial theory; participation; agency; Skyddade områden; naturvård; biologisk mångfald; världsarv; urfolk; urfolksrättigheter; samer; diskurs; postkolonial teori; deltagande; handlingsutrymme; statskunskap; political science;

    Abstract : There is considerable geographical overlap between areas set aside for nature conservation or protection and Indigenous peoples’ lands, and the social, economic, and political consequences of protected areas have often been extensive for Indigenous peoples. Discourses of conservation converge with discourses of Indigenous peoples, and both carry a legacy of colonial constructs and relationships. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dualities, Symmetries and Unbroken Phases in String Theory : Probing the Composite Nature of the String

    Author : Johan Engquist; Joseph Minahan; Charlotte Kristjansen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Theoretical Physics; String Theory; M-Theory; Higher Spin Gauge Theory; Super Yang-Mills Theory; Anti-de Sitter Spacetime; Singletons; Massless Higher Spin Gauge Fields; AdS CFT Correspondence; Spin Chains; Semiclassical Strings; Tensionless Limits; Conformal Symmetry; Supersymmetry; Higher Spin Gauge Symmetry; Integrability; Fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The thesis treats aspects of string/M-theory in anti-de Sitter spacetimes and their supersymmetric completions. By applying the AdS/CFT correspondence, as well as models of spin chains and singletons, we try to attain a better understanding of the underlying symmetries and the unbroken phases of string/M-theory.

  4. 4. Wastelands of difference? Urban nature and more-than-human difference in Berlin and Gothenburg

    Author : Mathilda Rosengren; Matthew Gandy; Maan Barua; Steve Hinchliffe; []

    Abstract : This thesis explores more-than-human entanglements of contemporary urban environments in order to develop a rearticulation of urban landscapes as spaces decidedly beyond the exclusively human. Taking its cue from the question “How do we live with urban difference today?,” such spaces, the thesis argues, emerge through, as well as change with, a variety of socio-ecological entwinements.

  5. 5. Views of Nature and Environmental Concern in Iceland

    Author : Þorvardur Árnason; Elfar Loftsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Views; Nature; Environmental; Concern; Ethics; Iceland; Miljöhistoria; Island; Naturuppfattning; Naturskydd; Historia; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : Environmental concern in contemporary societies is a complex phenomenon which is shaped and influenced by a host of different factors. One of the most important of these is the interplay between culture and nature that has taken place during the course of a nation’s history and the various ‛views of nature’ that such interplay has generated.
