  • Postdoc in Energy History (2 years)

    Publicerad 2017-09-01
    The post-doctoral researcher will be part of a dynamic research environment with a long track record in energy studies and in which historical studies are seamlessly integrated with studies with a more present-day focus. Funded by the STandUp for Energy-strategic research programme (www.standupforenergy.se), the post-doc will further play an important part in strengthening the historical and societal dimension of KTH’s energy-oriented research. The post-doc will carry out research about the history of energy supply. Within this broad frame, the post-doc will have considerable flexibility in defining his or her own research focus. The post-doc may also be asked to participate, on a smaller scale (10-20%), in teaching and tasks of a more administrative character.

  • The Sociolinguistics of Academic Publishing - New book from postdoc Linus Salö

    Publicerad 2017-08-29
    This book presents a sociolinguistics of academic publishing from an historical and contemporary perspective. Using Swedish academia as a case study, it focuses on publishing practices within history and psychology. The author demonstrates how new regimes of research evaluation and performance-based funding are impinging on university life. His central argument, following the French sociologist Bourdieu, is that the trend towards publishing in English should be understood as a social strategy, developed in response to such transformations. Thought-provoking and challenging, this book will interest students and scholars of sociolinguistics, language planning and language policy, research policy, sociology of science, history and psychology.

  • The Travelling Scientist's Itinerary

    Publicerad 2017-08-09
    This project began as a blog, The Travelling Scientist, inviting fellow academics to contribute with stories and reflections about academic travelling. The blog later expanded into a project, “Travelling Without Borders,” funded by KTH-Sustainability. The project allowed for more systematic work with the blog content that could be used for formulating an online survey on academic travelling, a workshop at KTH and an op-ed article “Klimatforskarna förvärrar utsläpp” [“Climate scientists aggravate emissions”] in one of the largest Swedish dailies, the Svenska Dagbladet.

    Publicerad 2017-06-21
    "Lampedusa, Indomeni and Ventimiglia are the centers of a new geography of Europe, places which embody the fact that migration, borders, and bodies intertwine, creating a political ecology of humans’ movement and state’s control. Routes of hopes and desperation crisscross the Mediterranean; acts of violence and disobedience dot the fortified borders of Europe

  • Swedish Research Aid

    Publicerad 2017-05-16
    Building capacity in societies through research and knowledge is probably more urgently needed than ever. The global problems facing humankind articulated in Agenda 2030 need global awareness and the solutions require commitment, inclusion and cooperation within and between politics, policy and the research society. Sweden has a long experience in supporting research cooperation and development research in partner countries. The overall aim is to strengthen research of high quality and of relevance to poverty reduction and sustainable development with a primary focus on low-income countries and regions.
