The project’s field expeditions to Russia have now been completed. The field trips were done in December 2009 (Jørn Holm-Hansen and Mikkel Berg-Nordlie) and April-May of 2010 (Mikkel Berg-Nordlie). Interviews have been done in seven different locations, including: Apatity, Kirkenes, Loparskaya, Lovozero, Monchegorsk, Murmansk, Olenegorsk.
We are deeply grateful to all the people who have shared with us their experiences and points of view. Furthermore, we wish to give thanks to the people at the Murmansk State Pedagogical University’s Faculty of Intercultural Communication, Language Theory and Journalism for providing important help in organizing the field work.
