Janne Flora



Janne is specialized in Greenland, and interested in a range of concerns spanning from kinship, loneliness, suicide, and personhood, to climate change, hunting, and living resources. 

Her first monograph “Wandering Spirits: Loneliness and longing in Greenland” (Chicago) was published in 2019. It explores how longing and loneliness is expressed in everyday practices of human relatedness in Greenland. She has also co-authored articles and reports, related especially to her interdisciplinary and collaborative work with natural scientists, GIS and hunters in Northwest- and East Greenland. 

Janne is grant holder on the collaborative project “Muskox Pathways: Resources and Ecologies in Greenland” funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research in 2019. The project, which involves anthropologists and archaeologists from the universities of Aalborg and Copenhagen as well as stakeholders in Greenland, explores the sporadic, but nonetheless deep, entanglements between natural environments and social forms that come into being through the muskox. Read more about Muskox Pathways here: https://projects.au.dk/muskoxpathways/
