Academic interests

  • Music in the Nordic Regions
  • Sámi music
  • Music and nature
  • Social anthropology
  • Nature/Culture

My research is about a Sámi musical tradition called joik. I am exploring the philosophy at work in joik and its power to summon presence. I pay particular attention to situations of entanglements of songs with personhood, atmosphere and lanscapes.
