Stine Krøijer

Assistant professor

Primary fields of research

I have a broad interest in political culture and activism in Latin America and Northern Europe. I have worked with the performative aspects of protests, time, intentionality and political cosmology among European anarchists and among indigenous peoples in the Ecuadorian Amazon. With a background in the NGO world I also have an interest in the impact of climate change on social life, the escalation of conflicts around extractive industries, the politics of nature and development.

Current research

Currently I am working on a new research project called ‘the political life of trees,’ which focuses on human interaction with trees, and the forms of politics and political potentiality emerging from this interaction. The project speaks to a context of escalating social conflict around extractive industries and global climate change, and combines this with a theoretical inquiry into the entanglement of material objects and human projects. The empirical focus is on an indigenous group in the Ecuadorian Amazon and radical environmental activists in Germany. My hope is to contribute to the current debate within anthropology on comparative methodology by exploring how trees, as scales of change in these two contexts, can theorize each other.

I am part of the 'globalization and development' and 'Conflict, Power and Politics' research groups. Currently, I teach 'advanced research methods' (Global Development, interdisiplinary master) and 'anthropological project design' (Anthropology, master level).
