Farmlands, or agricultural landscapes, captures the interest of a number of researchers based at the Department of Human Geography, Stockholm University. On this blog we share information about research findings, activities, events and comments related to our work.

Our interest in farmlands has three roots: farming, landscape and society.
Farming as a practice, including farmers knowledge and labour investments
Landscape as society-nature relations, congealed history, and as space and place
Society as a short form for institutions, gender relations, political economy and scientific relevance

Most Welcome to FarmLandS!

Fieldwork in Human Geography: lunch seminar 30th January

The 30th January at 12.15 at the Dept. of Human Geography at Stockholm University (room X308) Brian Kuns, Natasha Webster and Martina Angela Caretta will present the results of a short survey among current and former PhD students within the Department about fieldwork and related challenges.

The aim of this short lunch seminar is to stimulate the debate on fieldwork within human geography: what are the expectations? How should preparation be dealt with? What challenges are to be encountered?How should they be dealt with?  How should a researcher deal with the personal consequences of fieldwork? What does support for fieldwork consist of? and more......

A short presentation will be followed by an open discussion/focus group around key questions. 

 Hope to see you there!
