Mathilde Højrup

Research Assistant in the AURA project

Mathilde Højrup has done fieldwork at former brown coal mining sites in Jutland studying post-industrial landscapes. Her research has focused on instability, through the shifting, material-discursive practices around landslides, social belonging, hunting, conservation and nature management. She has studied how different, changing practices historically have shaped the landscape and vice versa creating a space for diverse kinds of practice, ideas and possibilities - some of which are incompatible.
